Wanted to explore something new; ended up falling in love with everything in between.
I would say that my genuine interest towards Asian culture began at the end of 2012, thanks to my lovely friend. For me, it wasn't the dramas/movies that set off the interest - it was food (one of the most enjoyable life pleasures) and music (something I grew up with). As for the music, the first time hearing K-pop was pretty much, in a way, a very mixed experience; I would say I somewhat really enjoyed and disliked it at the same time. Come to think of it, I believe it was the language barrier that confused me a little bit. Living my life with music, I was always used to understand the lyrics of the song directly - at that time I never thought about the lyrics as a set of words that do not require to be completely understood. It's more of a feeling, I say.
My love for K-pop grew more and more over the years. I dropped few times, but always came back, closer and closer. Instead of simply listening to the music I started paying attention to the artists themselves, realizing how much effort they put into every single thing they do. Years went by and K-pop crept into my life unnoticed, changing it for the better.
When it comes to Asian dramas/movies, I do have some specific preferences. However, I would say that it doesn't matter whether the story itself carries a dark, twisted tone (even though I enjoy watching such movies/dramas more), or whether it is really comical and brings more laughter than tears. I am not extremely critical, if the plot seems to be not as interesting as I hoped, I still watch for few more minutes/episodes just to make sure that it's not for my taste. However, the plot must make sense, I really don't like artificial plot settings (something to do with relationships, completely random and unexplainable story changes). I love seeing how characters deal with the challenges, the growth of their personalities over time is important to me. To see a strong female lead is something I never oppose to. Also, the more unexpected the storyline is, the better.
