Many do not know what is the difference between dramas and melodramas. And there are differences between them, and tangible. You can immediately say that the melodrama is a subgenre of the drama, and it has a narrower focus – its plot is limited to frames. Let’s see what attracts us to dramas, not melodramas.
If the aim of the melodrama is to reveal the inner world of heroes, which are usually associated with love relationships, then the drama can tell about different spheres of life. You can contemplate a military drama that narrates about the hard times of our ancestors, a criminal drama that will necessarily be accompanied by victims, both human, there’s moral, and spiritual, erotic or even political drama. In fact, the drama reflects the conflict between the protagonist and the outside world surrounding him. The love story in drama is possible, but it is not the only one and the main one, and this is more attractive than melodrama.
