So I started watching K-drama’s spring 2016 and listening to K-pop in summer 2016. I started watching Korean Drama's when I was browsing on Netflix, bored, and I clicked on 12 Years Promise (Wild Chives and Soybean Soup)! Unbeknownst to me, that was my start into all things Korean.
I love dramabeans when watching a tv show because if you’re ever confused and they have the show, you won’t be afterward!
(Flower Boy Next Door, You've Fallen for Me, Circle, Reply 1997, Father is Strange, and Hit the Top)
(Beauty Inside, Hot Young Bloods, Codename Jackal, Werewolf Boy)
I’m a big fan of Park Shinhye (Heartstrings, Doctors, Pinocchio, You're Beautiful, My Annoying Brother, Flower Boy Next Door, Tree of Heaven, and Heirs), Han Hyojoo (The Beauty Inside, Always, Cold Eyes, Post Man to Heaven, W-Two Worlds, and Love 911), Jung Somin (Playful Kiss, Can We Get Married, Twenty, My Father is Strange, D-Day, and Alice: Boy from Wonderland), Park Bogum (Reply 1988 and Love in the Moonlight) and Yoon Shiyoon (Hit the Top, Flower Boy Next Door, and Mirror of the Witch)!
(Full House, Kiss Me, Paradise Kiss, Koizora, Never Young 2, Love O2O, Witness)
1) Amnesia Plot 2) If I’m three episodes in and playing games on my phone rather than paying attention because I’m bored 3) Second Lead Syndrome.
When I rate, there really is no clear guide as to what it gets. I honestly rate based on feeling, but know if it's in the 8.5-10 range, I really did enjoy it. If it's a 10, I fell in love with the drama completely.
I do like variety shows! Return of Superman, Weekly Idol, 2 Days 1 Night, Running Man, King of the Masked Singer, Singing Battle, Roommate, Knowing Brothers, and Duet Song Music Festival.
trust me- there are MANY more haha!
My start in Kpop came later than dramas because I actually wasn’t aware
of it until a few months after.
My first group was CNBlue!
I accidentally discovered them while trying to find the Heartstrings OST and then fangirled that he was actually a singer in a band and there were a bunch of songs by him to listen to! But over time, Jung Yonghwa moved to be my bias wrecker and my bias became Lee Jonghyun.
My bias group is 방탄소년단 (BTS)
actually refused to listen to them at first because I have no idea.. but after
I listened to Danger- I was hooked.
J-Hope is my bias and Rapmon is my wrecker, and Jungkook is slowly becoming my wrecker's wrecker.
VIXX is my second Bias group
They were the first boy group I was
exposed to with Chained Up.
Leo was my bias but now he is my bias wrecker and N is my bias.
ASTRO is my current find
My bias is Cha Eunwoo because he was too cute on
Boomshakalaka (variety dance show) and I swore up and down I wasn’t going to
listen to groups with 2000’s babies in them because it’s just to young but
talent is with all these groups and they deserve a chance.. so they win.
Seventeen has also surprised me
I'm obsessed with Boom Boom and Don't Wanna Cry. My Bias is Wonwoo and my wrecker in Mingyu and the S.Coups is my wrecker's wrecker and basically I'm in love with the Hip-hop unit as Vernon catches my eye non-stop too..
Lastly, Highlight (formerly Beast)
I actually stopped paying attention to them because they just didn't catch my eye completely but I loved their music so I still listened from time to time and then they left their company so I thought they disbanded but they came back and when I watched Boomshakalaka, Gikwang was there and I fell in love with him and didn't realize who he was and then when I figured it out, I started listening to Highlight (again) and so I'm devoted haha.
I honestly have many groups and bias's and the list could go on forever, so I'll list only some briefly! I love these groups too and I feel really bad for the underdog groups who are really good but just not finding the timing to make their mark, so check them out!
Got7, FTIsland, BTOB, BAP, Trouble
Maker, Winner, MonstaX, Epik High, Cross Gene, and Nu’est
... Trust me, there are many more, especially soloists like… Jung Joonyoung, Roy Kim, Jung Eunji, Sleepy, Augst D, IU,
and Eric Nam,
If anyone has any drama or kpop recommendations, feel free to!
I think that is everything… I can’t think of anything else really.. so send me request if you’d like! I love having new friends to fan girl with!
