Mention melanoma, cancer, a hospital scene and I feel hives coming on. Fill it with birth secrets, cold-hearted adoptees and I’m holding it at the end of a pole like a dirty sock that’s fell into the sewer filled with a cesspool of poo. That makes me allergic to dramas such as A Thousand Day Promise. As much as I love both lead actors and I can eat up Kim Rae Won’s acting with a shovel, I can’t stand melodramas. Probably more Korean ones than Japanese ones.
