What’s the standard for reviewing kdramas?
Over the years, you’ll notice that Jazminemedia focus shifted from recaps to mostly reviews. Jazmine K. is the one who writes the reviews. Usually, she’d review an ongoing drama half-way through and once it’s done as well. Some kdramas get only one review which is often published at the end after Jazmine had watched it in its entirety.
If the drama catches her attention, she’ll likely write episode by episode review, but that rarely happens.
Jazmine K. doesn’t review kdramas that are longer than 20 episodes. She reviews kdramas by all broadcasting Korean channels including MBC, KBS, JTBC, tvN, SBS, and more.
Jazminemedia is one of the few Korean English content sites that post spoiler-free reviews of currently ongoing kdramas.
How many kdramas is Jazmine watching at any given time?
It depends, but usually Jazmine is watching up to 10 kdramas at any given time. She watches all short to mid-length kdramas (not longer than 20 episodes) and decides on what to review based on what kdrama she continues to watch till the end.
