WHY I LOVE KDRAMAS!!


 MY LOVE FOR K DRAMA...

I started watching a new drama series called "My secret romance" and I was thinking, why not write a post on why I love K-dramas so much? and maybe even list down my top favorites? Writing blog posts is a way of helping me remember and record events as my memory is fleeting. 

I can give you a million reasons why I love Korean dramas. Sometimes it helps me escape from the harsh realities of life. K-drama is a thing now. Why?? Because it has f****** intense emotions and values unlike american movies and television. A lot of people when they are stressed or having a terrible day would resort to consuming alcohol or doing drugs. I on the other hand would resort to watching Korean dramas.This might sound weird to many of you, but I know for a fact that the people who watch K-dramas would agree with me. They are addictive! Once we start we won't be able to stop. My parents should be proud of me that I don't do things that normal people do. Lol

My love for K-dramas go way back. Ever since day one I am hooked! The K-drama actors are unbearably attractive. Unlike American shows, these dramas have a different approach to catching the attention of audiences. Its pure and clean and teaches certain values of life and societal norms. I don't hate American television, the point I am trying to make here is that, there is more to life than steamy sex scenes and violence. K-dramas have a way with audiences and most dramas are G-rated (no foul languages, minimal violence and less intimate scenes). I think I am making it sound boring. I don't know -_- , all I can say is watch one drama and you will know what I am talking about.

The first drama I watched was called "Boys over Flowers". Since then, I am obsessed with Korean people and culture. I can now speak some Korean words and phrases and hopefully I will be a ninja in this language few months from now. If you haven't started the K-drama marathons yet, I can give a few simple reasons why you should watch it. 
 These reasons are from my point of view.
  1. The drama plots are fresh, different and exciting
  2. The actors in the drama are unbelievably cute and adorable.
  3. The fashion in dramas are super cool and trendy.
  4. Most dramas are super romantic and kiss scenes are adorable. LOL
  5. The K-dramas teaches us some of the basic values of life. eg:- Respecting elders.
  6. The most annoying thing is the cliffhanger endings, which makes you feel near impossible to live until the next episode is out.
  7. most dramas typically have 16 to 20 episodes, one hour each which I think is a perfect length to connect and tell the story. By the end of the 1st episode, you are completely hooked.
  8. The k-dramas are readily accessible. I watch my dramas online through a site called dramacool. We can watch almost all Asian dramas here.
  9. Most dramas have a unique plot, with amazing cinematography and catchy beats (OST's <3).
  10. There are some catchy romantic moments is some K-dramas with perfect background and music, that makes your heart melt. Seriously, that feeling is intense and it is going to stay with you for a long time.

I wouldn't suggest anyone to watch all Korean dramas because some of them are really boring. I am going to list down some of my favorite ones so far in the order I like them to be watched...
  • GOBLIN - This is a new drama and by far the best drama ever made. I loved the plot and the characters. It has a very unique story line and the music is highly addictive and the cinematography is breathtaking. The female lead, OMG her acting skills are next level. <3 <3
  • I HEAR YOUR VOICE - This drama may be a little old but the story line is very interesting and I love the message that the story is trying to convey to the audience. This drama is a little slow in the beginning but keep watching it for couple of episodes and you will be hooked. 
  • STRONG WOMAN DO BONG SOON - 2017 series, I love it - unique plot, funny and a super cute drama.
  • DOCTORS - This one is a little more of a serious type drama yet interesting. I love the story and the characters. It conveys a good message and teaches some medical terms which are not familiar to the crowd.
  • BOYS OVER FLOWERS -  This one is really old but one of Lee Min Ho's best performances. The story line is cute. I won't say its unique because most Korean dramas revolve around a rich guy falling head over heels for a poor girl. This drama is not any different but its cute to watch, at least for a person who is new to korean drama world.
  • THE HEIRS - Why I love this drama? because its f****** Lee Min Ho's drama. :D The plot is pretty much the same as I mentioned above but again its a cute drama with cute people and cute OST's. 
  • PINOCCHIO -  It has a very good plot. In fact it shows us some of the ugly, awful truth about media and news channels. The story might seem a little dull in the beginning but bear with it, it gets interesting as the story progresses. Personally, I love this drama because its trying to deliver a good message.  Maybe I should have listed this one right after goblin (*thinking*).
  • WEIGHTLIFTING FAIRY KIM BOK JOO - Story about a girl who loves weight lifting. Unique story and cute actors.
  • THE LEGENDS OF THE BLUE SEA - Another Min Ho drama- cute, hilarious and romantic with some legendary twist to it. 
  • SECRET GARDEN - Another sweet drama, a romantic roller-coaster ride. I like the female lead - she is a macho.
  • PERSONAL TASTE - This one is a little different type of a story where a guy who pretends to be gay lives with the female lead and fills the role of her gay best friend. It has some really funny and romantic scenes which had me laughing out loud.
  • MY SECRET ROMANCE -  I am currently watching this drama. So far so  good. It has a little erotic side to it in a neat way if you know what I mean. 
  • UNCONTROLLABLY FOND - This one is a melodrama which has a good plot. It shows us the harsh realities of life. It has a sad ending though but that is how life is. I love Woo Bin's acting in the drama. 
  • PLAYFUL KISS -  Umm, What do I say about this drama ??Just watch it and enjoy! -_- The female lead is adorably cute.
  • W : 2 WORLDS - Another great drama of the one and only cute Lee Jong Suk. A very unique and creative plot.
  • CINDERELLA AND FOUR KNIGHTS - Definitely not a bad drama. Give it a try. 
  • LOVE RAIN -  To be honest, this drama didn't have a good viewership rating but I kinda like the story. It is a full on romantic comedy! Personally, I enjoyed watching the drama.
  • YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL - I won't say I love this drama and that's why I listed it at the bottom. 
  • FLOWER BOY RAMYUN SHOP -  Not bad, if you want to watch it, do it when you are totally clueless about what to watch next.

These are all my personal favorites. If you haven't watched a K-drama yet, start by watching one of the dramas in the list.
Let me list down a few sites that I know, for watching the asian dramas with English subtitles...

MY BUCKET LIST

WHEN YOU WISH UPON ALIST.. So, Its been a while....I would be lying if I said I was busy. I have been at home doing my own things. My past few weeks have been really stressful for no reason. I don't have motivation to do anything lately. I have been unemployed for 4 months now. I resigned my job to plan my wedding and now I feel miserable about it and to add fuel to the fire, I managed to get my heelbone fractured 3 months ago and I'm still struggling to walk steadily (Don't ask me how). So, yeah I have been really bored lately that I decided to make a list of things I want to do before I die. 

My life was a lot miserable during my teenage years and I still feel disappointed with a lot of things happening in my life. I want to be happy and make people I love feel happier with me around. Happiness means differently between people- It could be about adventure or about solitude. It could be about having an extravagant life or a life of “just enough.”  To me, happiness means a l…

MESSED UP TEENAGE YEARS..

LIFE AS A TEEN ....  So this is just a picture I picked out from google. I have no experience as a blogger.This is my first time starting a blog so it may not be as attractive and appealing to many of you. It's still a "work in progress". I am still learning and figuring out things here.Let me know if you guys have any suggestions. Okay, So I was wondering where to start the story of my life. By the way, I would not be writing every minute details of my life. There are certain things that happens in your life that changes your perspective about life and the people around you and that's what I want to specifically talk about. I wont say I had the most amazing life as a teenager. When I was 16, my life took a nasty turn. I think we all go through that terrible phase were things seem pretty messed up and we conclude "This is it! This is the End of me" !!! Trust me, I know that feel.

We are all very vulnerable in teenage years. I was watching this Netflix series…

A DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE...

A HEARTWARMING EXPERIENCE AT ECHOES... One morning I was talking to my bestie and I felt like meeting up with her . We hadn't seen each other for more than 3 months. I was in bed for a while due to an accident that fractured my heel bone. After solid 3 months of rest and sulkiness, I decided to get some air. I called up my friend and asked her to meet me at a mall. Since I couldn't risk to ride my scooter, I took a cab and waited at the mall for a few minutes before she showed up. She was as always looking like a doll. I always admired her because she is a beautiful person inside out. We had our usual girl talks for a bit and 15 minutes into the conversation, she said she was hungry and wanted to grab a lunch. We looked up some of the pubs and restaurants in that area with good reviews. Bangalore has tons of beautiful eateries which go beyond just offering you a satisfying meal. We have been to quiet a few theme based restaurants before. We wanted to explore yet another one thi…

ZERO MOTIVATION....

 TRAUMA OF UNEMPLOYMENT Okay , So today I am going to go visit a couple of institutes that offers training on SAP Fico module. I want to get trained on SAP as it adds some essential skill on my CV. Finding a genuine institute can be tricky because believe it or not there are so many fake ones in and around the city just to fleece money. I am really stressed out lately. Its been 5 months now. Well, to be honest I'am not really trying hard enough. I am confused about so many things. I have way too many things in my head which I can't really tell anyone yet. I could try going back to my previous company but there is a reason why I am not trying there. Again, I am not ready to spill the reason as to why- atleast for now. These unemployment days have left my brain to rot and I can't think or do anything that essentially should help me get hold of an interview. I mean I am planning too much, but I am not putting them into action. I want to continue my studies but I am not taking …

WHAT DID I STUDY ? WHAT IS MY CAREER ?? AMBITION??

 WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE??
As a child, I dreamed of becoming a Doctor some day. Growing up I had multiple career aspirations. A Rockstar. An Astronaut. A Fashion designer and the list goes on. During middle school, I figured maybe I wasn't fit to become a doctor or an astronaut. My chemistry and physics grades were not up to the mark. As I was doing my high school, I met this teacher. She had a profound impact on my life. She always told me that I had the skill set and abilities to become a civil servant or a chartered accountant in my home country(India). Back then, I was a shy girl who had no idea what I was doing with my life. With the help of my teacher I realized maybe I wasn't as dumb as I thought I would be. Well, I always sell myself short. I am fully aware that its not something to brag about. It did have a negative impact on me which i will cover on a later post.So, this feeling that I am good for nothing  made me think of myself as the dumbest person alive on th…
