    THANK YOU!!!!

    Over three years ago I got sucked into the world of K-Dramas and K-Pop. No one around me understood this new interest. I finally stumbled over the knowledge that one of my college friends also watched…our other college friends made fun of us. Lots of eye rolling (I am sure you know what I am talking about.) Anyway one of those dear dear friends follows your blog, and now has to admit we are not alone, nor crazy! πŸ™‚

    Thank you for promoting K-Dramas and furthering the spread of Hallyu…ah what am I saying, thanks for helping me not be made fun of as much! πŸ˜‰

    Ps. I LOVE Lee Seung Ki and am loving Gu Family Book! And City Hunter is in my top ten as well…Lee Min Ho is going to be in “Heirs” (Written by the same person who wrote Gentleman’s Dignity and Secret Garden!!!!) Co starring Park Shin Hye!!!! Should be good!!!!

    Okay, I’m off! Happy viewing!

      Hello, fellow addict. Yeah, I am really looking forward to Heirs.

        Heirs is now on Hulu, at least up to the most current episodes. The acting has been great. The portrayal of Americans is pretty funny at times and others depressing. The English speaking is some of the best I’ve seen in K-dramas and it has been nice to not read subtitles all the time.

    I don’t watch a lot of the longer, weekend family dramas because they are too long, but after seeing the enthusiasm on Dramabeans I tried a few episodes. I love this show! So cute. I generally like most of the characters (except Jun Ho’s sister…so irritating). It took me a bit to get used to the pacing since I normally watch dramas that are 16-20 episodes. I think I like the time it’s taking to get the relationships moving. I hope the baker gets more air time. He’s hilarious.

    I really like watching the interactions between Jun Ho and Soon Shin. It’s fun to see how they’re getting used to each other, and how he’s starting to care for her. I never thought I’d be so interested in a family drama, but this is actually the first drama where I watched an episode without subtitles because I was too impatient to wait. (I was actually surprised with how much I understood.)

    I do wish Soon Shin knew she was adopted. I know this kind of story line creates drama/plot in dramas, but it just makes me sad and causes so much heartache when the character finds out.

    I’m watching Gu Family Book, too.

      Oh, I wanted to ask if you’ve watched any of the variety show “Dad, Where are We Going?” because I recommend it if you haven’t. It’s so. cute. Basically it’s about five actors who take their kids on an overnight trip. I don’t know what I like more, the interactions between the kids (they’re ages 5-9), or the interactions between dad and child. Seriously, it kills me with the cuteness. It also interesting to see some of the cultural differences in parenting.

        I haven’t seen that one (I don’t watch variety shows in general, though I do watch an episode or two when somebody I know I like is going to be on. This sounds cute, though. Where do you watch it? I also read about another one this week that had something to do with the army and actors, and I was really curious about it, but I don’t recall the name and don’t remember where I heard about it.

        Agree with you on Lee Soon Shin, and family dramas in general. The lead two are so adorable here.

        Just found a source for Dad, Where Are We Going online, finished the first one and I was totally smitten by the 2 minute mark. This is a delight. I am loving watching the emphasis on age in real time. http://shiareagy.tumblr.com/tagged/appa+odiga/page/4

          I’m glad you enjoyed it!

          I liked seeing them wake up in the first episode because we got to see inside real homes (vs drama sets) and get a peak at how the families live. It was interesting seeing how the kids mostly slept in their parents’ room, even though they’re not infants. In some ways it seems like the parents did more for their children compared to typical American families, as far as getting up and ready. But then the kids were given the responsibility to gather dinner ingredients from the village, which also seems different than mainstream America – I think many parents would be reluctant to give young children such a task. (I’m not a parent myself, though, so I’m just going off what I read/hear/see about typical parenting from various media, and from working in a public elementary school.)

          I’ve been watching from here: http://www.daebaksubs.com/search/label/Dad%20Where%20Are%20You%20Going

            Posted April 18, 2013 at 1:54 pm | Permalink

            Regarding the dinner ingredients – I notice that the dads are reassured that the village is safe, that of course their kids couldn’t do that back in Seoul, but the village only has something like 23 households. And the kids are followed by that huge team of cameramen, too, so it’s not like anything can really go wrong.

            I was tickled by Junsu’s dad lamenting his son’s terrible memory and gloomily saying, “I’m worried. I don’t think I’m going to eat well.”

      Oh- and I also watched a couple episodes of Lee Soon Shin raw because I couldn’t wait, and this is the first K-drama where I wanted to do that. Dark Smurf does have transcripts sooner than the subs are out, and I watched one raw episode with the transcript up on another screen so I could follow along better.

      Based on comments at dramabeans, I’m guessing it’s a little more common in Korea than here not to tell kids they are adopted (and adoption itself is less common there than here). There is one thing about the mystery adoption story line that I liked- I was in a fair way towards hating that middle sister and never wanting to watch another scene with her in it, until we learned that she also knew that Soon Shin wasn’t her biological sister. I was so impressed that she knew that, and yet as spiteful and malicious as her tongue can be, she never, ever slipped even once to hint at that with her sister. It totally changed my opinion of her.

      I’d love it if the biological father turns out to be Chan Woo’s dad. I realize that would mess with the middle sister’s love story, so it probably isn’t what the writer has in mind, but I keep thinking about when Chan Woo gallantly insisted that he *is* Soon Shin’s real Oppa, so of course he looks out for her that way. I would enjoy that twist so much if it turns out he truly is her real Oppa.

      The yellow text is only there so that those who dislike spoilers don’t see them.

    I was reading over comments on your Facebook page and saw in the thread about Drama Crazy that you’re not able to find Dad Where Are You Going? anymore. Well, since those comments are a month old, maybe you do now, but just in case – kshownow.net has the more recent episodes and a few older ones. I’m glad I found the show again because it’s perfect when I need a good dose of heartwarming and cute.

    I started watching Who Are You, Good Doctor, and Master’s Sun. I dropped Good Doctor because I really didn’t like how they were dealing with autism/disability. And the hospital politics frustrate me to no end. Who Are You I like well enough, but I dropped it because I really only have the time to watch one drama right now. So Master’s Sun it is. Gong Hyo Jin is one of my very favorite actresses – she does rom-com so well. And, as you said, it’s the Hong Sisters. I love the way they write characters falling in love. It’s always so cute and they hit the rom-com sweet spot for me.

    As for Lee Soon Shin, you’re stronger than me. I gave up about 10 episodes ago. Too much drama, not enough cute.

    (I feel like the only thing on comment on here is when you right about kdrama, but I do enjoy your other posts, too!)

      Posted August 26, 2013 at 10:54 am | Permalink

      I am giving Good Doctor one more week, but I will probably drop it.

      I also think I need to rewrite my review of this one- my admiration for Jo Jun Suk is just that strong but I don’t think most people’s would be. What they really need is just a fifteen episode drama with only his scenes in it. I have even grown tired of Baker Man Ajusshi, which is not his fault at all, it’s just this drama.
      According to Dramabeans the final episode is actually a very good one, so maybe you just want to watch the conclusion?

      • Posted September 1, 2013 at 8:26 pm | Permalink

        I actually made it through YTBLSS! I did have to make liberal use of the ff after episode 20 but I made it – and yes, I’m proud of myself.

        My only current drama right now is Master’s Sun since DH is on day shift (I try to only watch when he’s not around so night shift months = lots of dramas!) but that one is enough. I just love the Hong Sisters. I know they aren’t perfect but I don’t think any other writers make me laugh as much as they do.

          I am absolutely loving Master’s Sun, although I peek at the ghosts only obliquely through my fingertips. The Hong sisters are delightful, and these actors have great chemistry and delivery.

    Have you tried Invincible Youth? It’s on YouTube now, with translations. In the 3 shows that I’ve seen parts of so far, 7 girls from pop/idol groups are taken out to a small village in the country, where they help with activities (so far, harvesting hot peppers by hand, cutting a soybean field with something like a machete, picking apples, shaking down gingko nuts) and work on a 50 year old house without indoor plumbing or water (first order of business, digging a latrine) and try to cook in an old-fashioned kitchen.

    The respect shown to elders and the value given to work was nice. One caveat, I don’t particularly care for the dancing that the girls have done — they are very fully clothed, but . . . .

    I THINK one of the girls may have been in City Hunter, as the President’s daughter. The rest of the girls I don’t think I know, although I understand that one of them is now in Grandpas Over Flowers (which I haven’t found with Eng subs yet).

      I’ve watched parts of a couple more episodes, and am not sure whether I’ll continue. (The dance clips are getting to be a bit much, and there are some clips when they are wearing less than the earlier episodes.) So, it’s a mix of good and not so good, imho.

    Can you recommend any online radio stations that play the soundtracks (OSTs?) from some of the TV shows? I’ve really come to like some of the songs I’ve seen/heard on YouTube — songs from The Winter, The Wind Blows; City Hall; A Gentleman’s Dignity (can’t tell from the clips if I’d like the show, though); The Greatest Love; and singers/groups such as Huh Gak, Davichi, The One, V.I.B.E., 4Men, etc. However, sometimes I don’t want to be distracted by the videos and just would like to hear the music.

      I don’t know of any. That would be great, though. You might try asking at soompi.com’s message boards or maybe at eatyourkimchi.com. I have a K-pop channel set up on Pandora, but they list Big Bag as a Norwegian group, so it is of limited usefulness.

      Big Bang releases almost all of their things as acapella versions, too, which I really like. You can find playlists of those on youtube, and supposedly you can download them from YG entertainment for .99 each, but that hasn’t worked for me.

        I just found Arirang Radio online; the DJs that I’ve heard so far are speaking in English, but the songs are in Korean.

        Also Shoutcast Radio has a section devoted to Kpop radio stations, but I’ve only flipped around a little bit on that.

    You should try “You Who Came From the Stars”. It’s rom-com with bits of mystery, action, and sci-fi (?). The cast is great. I don’t know if you know them, but the chemistry between Kim Soo Hyun and Gianna Jun in this drama is so good! Plus, did I mention that the main character is an alien?

    Have you tried Return of Superman? I haven’t seen the first episode, but the later ones have four fathers in South Korea and Japan keeping their children for 48 hours while their wives are away. I’m somewhat befuddled by the ages of the children but I think they range from several months to 11 years old. The twin boys are a handful, Haru and Sarang are adorable, and the older boys are fun, too. . . . The dads are famous, but I haven’t watched enough Korean TV to know all of them (one of them I recognized because he had been on Running Man).

    I haven’t watched the whole series, but I’ve enjoyed what I’ve seen. However, there is a little cursing and some moments without diapers (although they often put cartoon hearts over certain body parts) and a few scenes when adults could be wearing a bit more.

    So much fun to find a CM mom who also loves k-dramas! I haven’t managed to convert any friends into K-drama watchers, but my mom and I talk over the recent episodes on the phone! I have to say that the very first ones I watched are still my favorites. I get excited about the current ones, but am often disappointed with the endings. When that happens I just re-watch an old favorite: )I was making a real effort to learn Korean, but I got busy (or lazy). I am hoping to pick up my studies again soon, although not likely with my 9th grader starting his first full year of CM studies.

    Absolutely loved Trot Lovers. It was a fluffy delight – even though I had to just make myself watch it went it turned angsty. But it couldn’t be a Kdrama without a good helping of angst.

    I have liked Eun ji in everything I have seen her in so far. Her voice is amazing. I followed up Trot Lovers with Answer Me 1997 and 1994 just to watch her again. Next on my list is High School King of Savy. I am also a big fan of Seo In-gook.

    You haven’t updated this in a while so I was wondering if you’re watching much kdrama these days.

    I’m watching Pinocchio right now…it’s so good! I just watched today’s episode. The story is really well-written, as are the characters. I’m really impressed with how the characters are developing. It’s so much more than just a romance. Actually, the story isn’t really driven by the will they/won’t they standard romantic tension. It’s there, but the real story that we want to see resolved is bigger than that.

    I know this is a rather random comment, but I just had to tell someone how much I’m loving Pinocchio.
    … I need friends in real life who watch kdrama so I can talk about it with them.

    Thanks for your website — I love your recommendations! Watched King 2 Hearts and My Love from Another Star based off your reviews. Loved King 2 Hearts. Started Healer and was enjoying it SO much — it reminded me of City Hunter! — but ******spoilers spoilers spoilers******* was sorry to see them go the Hollywood route with the romance . . . *ahem ahem* Very disappointing, and I may quit watching. =( Doesn’t look like there was any purpose to it other than how supposedly romantic it was. So sad!

      More spoilers: in a later episode he tells her he wants to live like other people and she tells him start using doors, he can’t come to her room, and he needs to talk to her dad. He tries to talk to the dad, and dad trips him up into revealing that she spent the night at his place, and the way dad tripped him up was pretty funny, as was the following scene where dad and ex-con ajussi lock themselves in a room with Healer and pull the blinds.

    After seeing your comments about Healer, I decided to watch it. Overall, I really liked it. I did find the ending somewhat anticlimactic. I wish it had been a bit more dramatic. I would have liked more on Myung Hee. I also thought Moon Shik wasn’t as evil as he was made out to be – he wasn’t the mastermind (which I knew), but he was so…I don’t know. I guess I wanted him to be more villiany or something.

    I’m also watching KMHM – generally like it but the lead female is a bit over the top sometimes. I like that the DID issues are a real problem and not a source of comedy. I think it’s pretty clear why Cha Do Hyun created Shin Se Gi, but I hope the show explains a little bit why they other personalities came about, especially Yo Na.

    I wasn’t going to watch Hyde, Jekyll, and Me, especially after the first episode was so ridiculous. I continued out of boredom (and, let’s face it, avoidance and procrastination), but now I really, really like it. I’m very interested to see how it turns out.

    Okay, I feel like I’m a hit and run commenter here, posting and then not following up on the responses, but this feels like a better place to comment on some of the social issues than other sites where people laud what I lament, and vice versa. Anyway….

    Are you watching Ho Goo’s Love (Fool’s Love)? It took about 2.5 episodes to grow on me, but now I care about the characters and want to know what happens. If you’re watching it, I’m curious to know your thoughts on how it portrays pregnancy, abortion, and adoption. Commenters at DB seem to like it in general, except for these things. I don’t want to spoil it if you had planned to watch, but I just get frustrated at the pervasiveness of progressivism/liberalism in English-speaking kdrama watchers.

        First time posting and sorry to butt in on a conversation, but what I like most about kdrama (and I’ve watched about 50) is how much less sex there is in a kdrama. I find the romance more appealing and genuine when the characters aren’t constantly half naked and having sex with each other (or other characters). Maybe I’m just old fashioned but I really prefer the romance in a kdrama to the sex in american television and movies.

    I got into K-drama earlier this year and have relied on guidance from this blog. Not only is the Headmistress an old friend from Usenet days, we seem to have similar tastes. I started out just watching the recommendations from here, but have started exploring on my own lately.

    Hi! I am korean who ran into your blog while I was searching frugal living, gradschool thing. From this coming fall, as I’m going to study in Indiana I was looking for some tips which can help me to survive in the US.
    At the moment I was starting to read your first paragraph, I saw the k-drama tap. Since i’m not a big fan of TV shows, I do not watch any dramas. But it’s pretty interesting for me to know there are americans watching K-dramas! πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy them!
    Plus, I like your blog a lot! Thanks for the posts.

    Sincerely,
    Yumi

        Oh, hi hi!
        I didn’t know you’re living in Indiana. That’s so random.
        I’ll be studying at IU, Bloomington. I’m planning to go there on early August this year.

        I’m planning to get there on early August this year. I’ll start studying at IU, Bloomington for music education graduate program.
        It’s so random but cool that you’re living in Indiana now. I’m looking forward to talking with you more! I am very curious about the life in Indiana.

        Best,
        Yumi

          I’d love to answer any questions. Unfortunately, IU Bloomington isn’t near us… and we’re moving overseas in November. I was hoping it might be one of our other Universities. Best of luck with your graduate program! And I can ask around and see if we have friends near IU Bloomington if you want some American contacts close to you.

            Thanks! Actually, I’ll email you if you don’t mind. (Is the one on ‘about us’ yours?). And it’s very exciting that you are moving abroad soon! Hope it goes well.

    Hi,
    Search of K-Drama brought me here. What an amazing internet world!
    I’d like to share some info with you guys. If you’re a K-drama lover and was looking for a romance book similar to Romantic Korean Drama, there is one titled “Falling in Love like a Korean Drama” on Amazon kindle. I wish you can read the book and share your thoughts.
    BTW, I love your blog! The depth of writing on K-Dramas!

    Regards,
    Anna

    Okaaayyyyyy, I have a problem and need help. I cannot find this programme that I watched like a year ago. It was about a pregnant woman who gets into a car crash with her ex-boyfriend (the baby is not his) and loses her memory. When she wakes she is told that they’re together and that the baby is his and they gave her a fake name. The guy is crippled from the accident and loses feeling in his legs. About 10 years later an actor employs this woman to find the love of his life (which is her) but never actually knows what she looks like. This is all that I remember of the show but can anyone help me find it? Please.

      That sounds intriguing. I don’t know it. Have you asked at DramaBeans?

      Heyyy! I think that drama called My Love Eun Dong. I was confused at first because the focus of the story was actually not between the husband and wife…That said, I personally still love it. You should give it a shot.
