My grandfather was from the Philippines, so that side of the family is extremely dramatic. When they are angry, they are extremely angry. When they are happy, you would think they just won the lottery. Every emotion is almost overly expressed, so you are never left wondering how they feel. Studying telenovelas reminds me somewhat of my extended family. Everything in these shows seems to be very dramatic and the actors are extremely passionate. I think that this is the root of my interest in these shows. Watching them feels almost just like a family reunion.
I'm looking forward to putting an excessive amount of time into watching the show I chose, and I hope my interest in telenovelas continues to grow overtime.
