Korean dramas

Korean drama serials are really funny... funny in the sense that most of them are so formulaic.

Take 2 men and 2 women, mix them about by making one like the other but the other likes another... if it is a comedy, then make them get into funny situations that will let the 4 people chase each other endlessly, or if its a serious drama, then give them a lot of impossibly difficult situations to go through... like the couple almost get together only to be torn apart by guilt or obligation.

Why like that ah? Its frustrating watching it sometimes and yet, it is so very popular. They have virtually taken over HK and Japanese drama serials as the thing to watch. Its on TV almost all the time. Can someone tell me why are they so popular?
