About my drama addiction
So the short story is that my name is Sandra and I’m a dramaholic.
My interest for Asia started already in 2004 when I watched the movie New Police Story and got really into cantonese music, then in 2005 I started to study Japanese in my spare time just because I thought it looked nice and eventually that opened up the pandora's box or what you guys might call dramaland.
I started watching dramas back in 2006, my first drama was Japanese, probably Hana Yori Dango 1 or 1 Litre of Tears. I watched them in shitty quality on youtube and I always re-watched each drama 3-6 times before moving on to the next one back then. My first Korean drama was My Girl and I also discovered the, at the time, pretty new k-pop group Super Junior, haha!
And well, I've been into this stuff ever since!

My rating system
1 - Rubbish.Why did I do this to myself?
2 - Terrible. I lost brain cells watching this movie/drama.
3 - Bad. It's bad, but not horrible. I didn't die watching it.
4 - "Nice try". A bad movie/drama with some enjoyable parts, close to OK, but lost it because the bad parts weighed too much.
5 - Average. This movie/drama is somewhere between meh, okay and actually quite good.
6 - OK. This movie/drama is OK, even good at some parts, but still too mediocre to give anything higher.
7 - Good. Simply put good, enjoyable movie/drama.
8 - Very good. It's a great drama/movie. I really really like it, but it still has some major flaws and/or something was just missing.
9 - Excellent. It's so good that I don't even mind possible flaws, it makes me invested and evokes feelings in me, something that makes it close to perfect.
10 - Perfect. Maybe not perfect for everyone, but perfect for me. I think that a ten is very personal, something that gets a special place in your heart and stays there for a very long time. A ten for me is something that makes my heart explode with feelings. It might not be flawless, but it occupies my head for a very long time and it's all I can think about. It's like the movie/drama has taken over me entirely.
Note: I have this rule when watching dramas and movies, it doesn't matter if it's Asian or Non-Asian, I have to watch every single episode for it to be completed. With other words I never speed-watch, ever.
