This is not a 'drama'. For crying out loud! Drama is fiction that is devoid of supernatural/fantasy elements. You can call this horror or fantasy or supernatural or any combination of those. But it's not a drama. Yes, There's drama there. But to categorize it as drama - watching an ant carry a larger bug on your kitchen floor is drama - and to exclude reference to the elements that really mark this show is to mislead.
