My Journey through Drama-Land
The Journey starts back in 2006/2007 with J-Doramas which I started watching during my freshman year in college majoring Japanese language (my first was Hana Yori Dango).
For someone who had never watched foreign dramas save American ones, exploring the world of Japanese dramas was a memorable discovery for me, no wonder I was immediately addicted.
After graduating college in 2010 the journey took the dramatic turn into the land of Korean dramas (my first was You're Beautiful) to which I developed yet another incurable addiction, to the extent I decided to start learning Korean on my own.
My Favorite Genres:
Generally I Prefer Romance-Comedies to Melodramas, but still I like giving Melodramas a try for a change every once and a while and so far so good.
And by Romance I don't mean the 100% pure Romance-only kind of thing, I rather prefer dramas that have a firm separate story mixed with a nicely balanced romantic element. For example, politics/detective/fantasy/historical/business mixed with a Romantic plot.
I particularly enjoy Detective dramas (both crime and law), Family dramas & School dramas.
You can say I'm open to most genres (well the ones I have watched till now). So any recommendations are greatly welcome!!
Who Am I?
I'm the type that while watching dramas & movies naturally talks to the characters throwing comments to nobody in particular...the type that laughs out loud and cries and sometimes sobs badly...the type that claps, sighs, screams and holds head in agony at times...To sum it up I'm nothing special when it comes to Asian Drama fans!
Life Update(April 2016) Since the last time I logged in (maybe around September of last year) I have given birth to a baby girl.
Being a mother is challenging, requires a huge responsibility, sometimes tiring, but mostly fun and quite inspiring.
Due to that, I am sure my hobby of watching Asian dramas will not disappear, but as a mother it will surely be not of the same scale prior to becoming one. As a result my logging here on MDL might also decrease.
I can immediately tell that, because since the last time I had followed any Korean showbiz news; a time which to me didn't seem that long; there has been a huge amount of new dramas, and updates I can never really manage to follow. Let alone the fact that I skipped the year-end reviews on DramaBeans (laugh)
