A year ago I turned on my laptop and was introduced to watching t.v online. I tuned into Hulu.com to catch up on my regular American t.v shows that I had missed through the week. Then one weekend I became bored after watching the usual seasonal shows so I browsed Hulu looking for something that would peek my interest and keep me wanting more, Thus I found my very first Show although it was not a K-drama, it was filled with action, and moving scenes that would make you cry, laugh, love the main character and hate the villains. Japanese movies Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman was my gateway drug to watching foreign movies such as Ip Man, The Man From No Where, Shinsengumi Chronicles: I Want to Die a Samurai, just to name a few.
Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman
I was entranced, the more I watched the more I wanted. I searched more looking for something that could fulfill my need for action, adventure, love, passion and romance. Finally one day there it was my very first K-Drama, 49 Days, starring South Korean actors Lee Yo-won, Nam Gyo-ri, Jo Hyun-jae, Ba Soo-bin, Jung Il-woo and Seo Ji-hye.
A woman gets a second chance at life in this refreshing tale of supernatural magic and true love. Bright, bubbly Ji Hyun has it all—wealthy, adoring parents; a devoted fiance; and a great best friend. On the other side of town, Yi Kyung is thinking of ending it all. When a chain of events set in motion by Yi Kyung leads to Ji Hyun’s death shortly before her wedding, a reaper from heaven intervenes to set things straight. For Ji Hyun to have a second chance at life, she must take over Yi Kyung’s body and find three people outside of her family who will cry sincere tears of grief for her—in just 49 days. As Ji Hyun sets out to find these people, she discovers that her perfect life may not have been so perfect after all. These two women may just save each others’ lives as they discover the difference between true and false love and begin to come alive again in this gripping tale.
My al time favorite to date is called Boys Before Flowers. I’ve watched this drama over three times and each time I find myself glued to the screen waiting for the next laugh or the next set of tears. Definitely worth watching if your a K-DRAMA ADDICT LIKE ME.
Boys Before Flowers. At the prestigious Shin Hwa High School in Seoul, four boys comprise the group known as the Flower Four. The crème de la crème of most powerful families from Korea, these spoiled, rebellious, flirtatious and cruel boys rule the school. Enter Jan Di, a girl of humble upbringing who is accepted into Shin Hwa on a swimming scholarship after accidentally saving the life of a Shin Hwa student. Not one for following the rules blindly, Jan Di faces immediate scrutiny from the entire school and in particular the boys of the Flower Four and their leader, Goo Jun Pyo, who dislikes her instantly. Through her charm and undying optimism, she slowly begins to capture the hearts of those around her, even the icy boys of the F4.
So for i have watched over 110 drama and counting. There is always enough to make you laugh, cry, fall in love or hate some characters. There is no other passion out here that can match that of Korean Drama.
