Confessions of a Korean Drama Junkie
Having been a corporate drone for the best part of the last decade, I did not get as much TV time as I wanted (Whine!). Now, being a recent stay-at-home-mom coping with bouts of boredom, I turned to Korean drama. As if baking muffins isn't bad enough, I have to get addicted to romantic Korean drama!
What exactly is a Korean Drama? It's like drama but it's Korean. Seriously, just check the wiki.
There must be a videoke scene, a must! As for the soju, never has a drunken girl or guy look so cute than in a Korean drama. During a drunken moment someone professes love that ends up in someone (usually, the guy) giving the drunken party a piggy back ride on the way home. It's sweet really, the most I got in real life is a cab ride ;-)
There's always tragedy. Amnesia, paralysis, death (a hospital scene is another must), star-crossed , you name it they got it. One example would be where a Guy A, killed himself so his eyes could be donated to Girl B. She then lives a happy life with Guy C, but not for long. She will still die in the end from an incurable disease with the sea as their only witness. Sigh!
People are always coming or going from place to place and no one ever seems to find who they are looking for, except that one smart guy who used the paging system.
Despite the cliche though, people still get addicted and wait for the next episode. Why? Don't ask me, I'm addicted, remember?! Check out some of the best Korean Drama I've seen so far.
