My name is Abby. I'm Mexican-american so I speak English and Spanish. I mostly watch Korean and Japanese dramas, but I might watch Taiwanese/Chinese ones from time to time. I'm open to watch dramas in any genre... tho I do prefer rom-coms^^ I'm a romance maniac at heart. But funny thing is my favorite top 5 dramas contain zero to mild romance hahaha so just saying!
My personal drama ratings scale are:
10 to 9.0 means either I loved the drama or I thought story,acting was superb or both xD
8.5 - 7.0 are good or enjoyable.
Anything in 5.5-6.5 is so-so.
Below 5.0 is bad, though I rarely have these since I don't have the leniency to watch such dramas.
I try to be objective but sometimes I am not xD
My first drama was "Tree of Heaven" with Park Shin Hye and Lee Wan back in September 2010... I watched it on youtube in parts... but I've got to say watching dramas in YT is not enjoyable lol. Then I watched "Love Contract" with Mike He and Ariel Lin, my first TW drama.
But as much as I liked those dramas, I wasn't completely swallowed into drama land... but "Boys Before Flowers" did the trick... Lee Min Ho, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Bum... what can I say. F4 stole my heart♥ (Though later I watched Hana Yori Dango and I like the Japanese version more xD)
I think my first Japanese drama was "Ichi rittoru no namida"... I cried and cried....still one of my all time favorites. Let me forever love Aya-chan and Asou-kun ♥

------>My other addiction: MUSIC = fangirling!!!
==>Arashi, they are my soul soul...♪ Get me to listen to an Arashi song on my worst days and most probably I'll see the light and rainbows and my good mood will return. Arashi makes me so happy and that's why they mean a lot to me. I love them. Oh yeah, Aiba Masaki is the future father of my imaginary children but he doesn't know yet lol *I wish*
===>The first fandom I belonged to and still do was Super Junior's. I'm an E.L.F♥ I've been in the fandom for almost 6 years now... so I know how crazy and stupid they are and I still love them lol. Foremost bias is baby Donghae. I went to their concert Super Show 5 and it was so fun and exciting!!! Super Junior is like a comfortable place to me, like family.
===>And Jaejoong...ah, my prince♥ I can say it was love at first sight with Jaejoong. Never had I seen such a perfect man like him with such a beautiful voice, so I couldn't not fall for him, right? kkk^^ Anyways, I really got into k-pop because of him. Now, It's been almost 7 years and I still love him the same! He's my always oppa.
==> My latest addition is NCT. It hit me HARD. Randomly watched "The 7th sense" music video one day, couldn't get it out of my head, and ended up watching all their english subbed shows the next 5 days and I sold my soul to them cause they are so talented and adorable xD They are my babies, I'm their noona xD It took me a while to digest their rather unorthodox system, but I just love all the units and members, even the ones that have yet to officially debut!
---> I had a break from k-pop in general for a while, but recently I've started to listen songs of groups I did not know and I like quite a few. I also like kdrama OSTs.
As for korean music in general, I love NELL. They're one of my favorite bands.
---> So now, I'm really into J-pop, Johnny's mostly. Well, Johnnys only tbh lol.
I love KAT-TUN, they're my 2nd favorite JE group. They've been on hiatus for a a while now but I just hope they comeback soon!
So, my bae Junno left KT but I still love him. I support him in his solo endevours. He's sunshine.
I also like NEWS, Kanjani8, Hey Say JUMP, Yamapi and the other JE groups in less degree.
---> I love Japanese alternative/Indie bands a lot. My favorite are Remioromen, Flumpool, Bump of Chicken, Radwimps.
--->I'm an admirer of Japanese figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu [or as I call him, Yuzu-chan lol] Saw him for the 1st time during the Sochi Winter Olympics and not only is he adorably cute/hot, he's so amazingly talented. Can't stop admiring his beautiful performances! Here's one of his coolest moves
Isn't he cool? Wait till you watch his quadruple-triple-double jumps....
--->Leaving Asian aside, I've always loved British bands, from The Beatles since I was a kid, and bands such as Coldplay, Keane, Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and Muse. I also love latin bands such as Los Fabulosos Cadillacs and Los Autenticos Decadentes, mexican Indie bands and such...
---> I love reading books; Harry Potter, The Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices series, Jane Austen novels and anything fantasy. I also enjoy manga and anime, mainly shoujo. Favorites are Ao Haru Ride, Orange, Strobe Edge, Hibi chouchou and Vampire Knight♥
Well, I guess that's about it...??? Excuse my randomness lol Anyways, feel free to add me as a friend. Let's share of love for dramas and whatever else ^^
