ABOUT ME

I discovered K-dramas last year (2017) and have been obsessed with them ever since. My gateway drama was Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, which is still one of my favorite romance dramas because of its take on gender roles. Story-wise, nothing has yet beaten Black. Not only was it a heartbreaking story, but it surprised me all the way through with smart writing and believable plot-twists.
