As fun as watching kdrama alone has been, it's not as fun as watching your favorite show with your bestie or family. I've watched a few with my roommate, which meant I had someone to squee without THAT look. You know that look.
The one they give you when you say you're watching kdrama or you try to explain something about a drama you're watching. And inside you're like
And it's like I listen to your personal problems, you can take five to listen to my kdrama ones! I mean Hye Jin in She Was Pretty is not normal and what look does Shin Hyuk have?
That's an amused supportive face! Now I have joined kdrama group discussions but it'd be nice to find someone to actually discuss with. Not just a comment here and there. If anyone's willing or feels the same as me and wants someone to chat with, please contact me! Now a little background kdrama story. My favorites are
Coffee Prince
Reply 1997
Bridal Mask. Side Note: I'm in love with Joo Won.
The Honorable Mentions that are really close to the top are Good Doctor, It's Okay That's Love, King of Highschool, Marriage Not Dating, Heartless City, Innocent Man, and The Princess' Man. And of course Queen Inhyun's Man.
I'm currently watching Reply 1994, Kill Me Heal Me, She Was Pretty, Six Flying Dragons, and Cheer Up. I'm about to start King of Dramas I believe, and possibly Incarnation of Money. If anyone would like to watch with me, or even suggest a drama for us to watch together, please comment!
Hi everyone! I’m Star, also known as romcomkdramafan on Tumblr. I’m sorry this profile isn’t more interesting but it’s hard for me to be funny when talking about myself without numerous expletives and making no sense. As an almost constant rule, if what I’m reading or watching does not have romance, I usually do not even start it. Usually the only time there’s an exception is when it is about family or is an action thriller. I will admit that sometimes a drama is better without the romance. To me, romance is not supposed to detract from the value of a drama. It does not have to be the main purpose. But it should be one of the many add ons that make a particular drama special. Why am I so obsessed with romance? I have no flipping clue. Well, that’s sort of a lie. I love that even though there’s a general plot for romantic interactions, that does not mean the journey, the way of telling the story, has to be the same. It’s like if every story had an evil stepmother with a birth secret that involves a murder, kidnapping, miscarriage, and sending someone to prison. Obviously this would usually not work. It’d be too dramatic, possibly unbearable. However, if written properly, this mixture can actually turn out wonderful. I have no idea if a wonderful plot involving those elements has been written well, although I’m sure it has (if you know of one, feel free to tell me). Usually I read historical romance novels. Karen Hawkins, Julia Quinn, Celeste Bradley, Teresa Medeiros; they are my book goddesses. I also have an undying oath to love everything Sherrilyn Kenyon writes and to worship the ground she walks on. My summer before college I started reading manga, and the one that kept showing up on romance lists was Itazura Na Kiss, but due to the author dying, the manga did not really get a chance to finish. Despite this, the husband of the artist helped complete the story, which helped spawn an anime. In my search for the anime, I also came across the live action. Now personally, the anime left a bad taste in my mouth so I was not ready to jump back in to that particular plot. So I found another live action. Hana Yori Dango. I loved it. I wanted to forever see Matsumoto Jun’s face, whether he was pouting or fighting the world. In 2014, my first semester of college, I finally had access to Wi-fi, a commodity that as someone who lives in a rural area, I was not previously not able to achieve. This immediately made me seek out something to watch, preferably for cheap (college is just too expense). I discovered the wonder that is Dramafever and Viki. Though I will admit that the FUZE, FLAVOR CHARGED ICED TEA commercial still makes me duck for cover. I swear I heard that commercial at least 1000 times. You’d think they would have multiple commercials, but NOOOOO, drive a person crazy why don’t you. My first official kdrama was decided by my roommate. I read off a list of high rated dramas and she said Coffee Prince. From that moment, my roommate’s random decision changed my life. I hate to love her for it. To this day, Coffee Prince is on my Top 10 list, at the very top. Tied with Healer and Reply 1997. It’s not just my favorite because it was my first either. It isn’t that drama I remember fondly and refuse to take it from its pedestal because it’s the reason I’m here. As a reader or watcher, you either have realized, or soon will, that what truly makes a great story is when it is just as good, if not better than the first time you were exposed. I rewatched Coffee prince almost a year after I first saw it, with my mom. I still couldn’t take my eyes off the screen. It still gave me that indescribable giddy feeling. I still inhabited those characters and felt for them. Any drama that does that is a keeper. I’m not much of a rewatcher unless I’m doing it to expose others to them. There’s probably a link somewhere to my favorite dramas list, favorite OTP’s and the like. If there’s a drama I’ve watched that you want to fangirl over, or if you would like a dramawatching partner to text or message, tell me. I’d love to have someone to personally message for a drama. It really changes the experience when you’re squealing over the same things. If you do decide to hit me up as a partner, be sure to tell me if you’re comfortable with cussing or not. I’m fine wither way but I do not wish to offend anyone or make them uncomfortable.
