Fell into the rabbit hole in 2009 while watching Episode 5 of Goong.
It took just one episode to discover the latent craze within for anything Korean.
From then on, it was a marathon to complete the series. Depending on the stable of scriptwriters, those cliffhangers can be extremely seductive to the point where you know, it is futile to talk yourself out of getting any sleep 😉
I enjoyed reading other blogs such as Dramabeans and Koala’s Playground to get up to speed with the other K dramas I wasn’t actively following and was very contented in that bubble until Secret Affair (Yoo Ah In, Kim Hee Ae) premiered on March 17, 2014.
Yoo Ah In’s breathtaking solo performance on stage as the piano prodigy, Lee Seon Jae cemented that feeling within that I had to squeal into the universe about how powerful this scene was.
How beautifully tragic the story unfolded (not giving out any spoilers here 🙂 ) and how BREATHTAKING the cinematography was thanks to the visionary director, Ahn Pan Seok.
I just HAD to SQUEEEE in BLISSFUL delight of my love for Korean Dramas…
Now, if only I have the power to absorb language skills at osmosis pace, I’ll be able to enjoy live-streaming of KDramas at any time, in any country on this wonderful planet!
