Na Min Kook was a spoiled brat and was sent by his father to his company branch office in China to learn the business. He ran away and befriended a Chinese student Yang Xue and her family. Friendship blossomed into love and Na Min Kook gradually learned to be a responsible person worthy of his father's expectations.
I started watching oriental dramas (Japanese, Chinese) on CCTV in Spanish. I've always liked it, but one day I came across this unique drama, totally different from all the Chinese dramas I had seen, and I noticed the Korean and Chinese co-production and decided to look for information from the Korean actors in Beijing My Love. This was in 2006, and to this day, in 2018, I still follow Korean dramas with interest. I had the great fortune to see the Chinese version of this drama, which has 31 episodes (the Korean has 20 episodes). I was totally in love with the characters and learned a lot about the cultural differences between Chinese and Koreans. I only regretted that the kiss of love was in the last episode. I learned that there are linguistic differences between the Chinese and Koreans, not only because of the language barrier but in the idiomatic phrases. I learned that Koreans are accustomed to giving tofu to people who come out of jail, to replace protein and improve their diet, but it is wrong for a man to ask tofu to a young lady, because in China that is asking for illicit sex. Also that there is taboo with tattoos. The tattooed men are related to the Chinese triads and the Japanese yakuza. And that there is a lot of respect and familiarity among the Orientals. I saw that Koreans are extremely respectful, bowing, something that the Chinese are beginning to forget. The name of Na Min Guk refers to the Korean flag. For the first time, I saw that the Koreans walk barefoot or with slippers inside the houses. For me, it was like a Far East 101 course. I watched how seriously is the Confucian filial piety and how respectful Orientals are in love. I highly recommend it. It has a lot of comedy, it is light and deep at the same time. Kim Jae Won sings in his recent drama one of the OST songs of this drama. Something that many have not realized. I speak of his mother's favorite song in the drama "Let Me Introduce Her", of 2018, just finished. I highly recommend it.
