I would prefer that TV series writers reduce the amount of time spent doing backstory for every main character by about 50%. More going forwards, please: less time looping backwards to manufacture emotional importance for present-day actions. If the present you’re writing isn’t interesting enough on its own, why are you writing about it?


P.S. I am not crank.

    Well yes. But in “Strong Girl Bong Soon” the writers needed to go back to Bong Soon’s childhood to show how being strong affected her emotional development. So maybe that’s an exception.
