Nothing beats my undying love for K-Dramas. “Boys Over Flowers”, my first drama, my first love, my introduction to the wonderful world of crappy acting and Earth-shattering love. I swear, I’ve never had the Earth shift so violently beneath my feet than when I watch my beautiful K-Dramas.
Where most people love Lee MinHo (with good reason, may I add), my heart lies irrevocably with Kim HyunJoong.
I love him, I love him, I looooove hiiiim.
So I’ve been trying to get Chimmercharlie to watch this for a while and now I actually have her watching it legit! I told her to watch BOF over a year ago and she refused. I told her to watch “Death Note” and she refused. A couple of days ago though she changed her mind and watched “Death Note” and seeing as she enjoyed that, I’ve managed to convince her to give BOF another go. If she likes this then I’ll get her to watch “Playful Kiss” next (starring my love, Kim HyunJoong).
See, the beauty of K-Dramas is that it’s not something you just *watch*. To WATCH is not the right verb for when you experience the life-changing thing that is KOREAN DRAMA!
I’ll admit that the acting is astonishingly, phenomenally, fantastically, unbelievably bad. To me, that simply adds to the charm of them. Call me weird, colour me crazy, but K-Dramas have ruled my life since I first encountered them in 2010. I was so resistant to it at first, but then my friend (I’ve known her my entire life- something that’s very rare in an expat community) *finally* convinced me to watch an episode of this at 2 in the morning in Cambodia on a school trip. Nothing else was on so I agreed. It happened to be episode 18 out of 25, therefore it was extremely intense and impossible to NOT finish watching. When I came home the first thing I did was get an account on Maaduu.com and watch ALL of BOF, then do extensive research on my one true Korean love, Kim HyunJoong and track down an english-subbed version of “Playful Kiss”.
CAN’T WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR!! KIM HYUNJOONG’S LATEST DRAMA- “CITY CONQUEST”- COMES OUT!!
Furthermore, I think I will cry at least 9 times before this very first episode is over. Seeing as we plan to have an all nighter to watch as many episodes as we watch before she goes home, I suspect this will only be the start of draining my tear-ducts. Oh well, it’s so amazing that I don’t really care how much I cry or how unattractive I’ll look tomorrow, I just want to watch ALL THE K-DRAMAS! And lust of Kim HyunJoong’s gorgeous face. *drool*
