I like to watch Korean dramas, but I don't like to watch soap operas.

YOU CAN SEE THE CONFLICT, RIGHT

Sometimes, I will find the drama that is the exact right length - long enough to tell the story, but not so long that the writers have to resort to needlessly convoluted plot twists to keep the story's resolution at bay. Usually, I find I start to get exasperated around episode 10-15.

(I'm told that sometimes the dramas that really take off are contracted for more episodes than were originally planned. That would explain a lot.)

So, imagine my glee when I found "Rooftop Prince" on Hulu -- a drama that uses one of my favorite tropes (out of place time-travelers), and is also only 12 episodes long. I put it in my queue and watched all the way up to episode 11.

During episode 11 I was very near my exasperation point. The truth desperately needed to come out, and the villains desperately needed to get their comeuppance. There had already been a few unlikely coincidences to prevent this from happening, and I was getting tired of it. But it's the second-to-last episode, right? I can hold out for just a little longer!

WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are actually twenty episodes. I just happened to add it to my queue when there was a pause in the subtitling (so it sat at 12 for a bit), and when I added it, I forgot to check the setting that would put new episodes into my queue as they were added.

Goddammit.

I haven't watched any more episodes yet. I don't know if I can take NINE MORE HOURS of a show that should have already ended.
