My most current watch list:
Gorgeous, gorgeous drama.
Love O2O, several times over.
Far Away Love
I discovered dramas spring of 2012. I was looking for a time travel movie on Netflix and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (Japan) came up. It was odd but in a good way. I had never seen anything like it. The ending got to me and I still remember it.
I love this pic from the movie. I feel like this sometimes. Walking through the trees, loving my Asian dramas... :-)
After Girl Leapt Through Time I wondered what other foreign films I may have been missing. Through what I now know to be a very limited selection on Netflix, I watched Innocent Steps. The story was simple but I was intrigued about other productions from Korea.
My all time favorite movie. I've seen it so many times, I've lost count:
Followed closely by:
Moment to Remember
My favorite comedy:
At first I only watched films. I wasn't really aware of dramas. Then after several conversations with some great people (Hi, jediprincess & Tony D!!) I was convinced I should try dramas as well. My true addiction began. I used to say it was rare that I'll watch a movie but everything goes in cycles. Mostly I watch Korean dramas but have started to branch out to Chinese, Taiwanese and Japanese productions as well.
For me drama watching is all about what kind of mood I'm in. Usually, I stay away from melodramas, I like lighter viewing. I want my dramas to have strong chemistry between the cast. I don't care if it's romance, bromance, best friends, whatever. I want to care about the characters and want to believe they're connected.
Some of my favorite characters/scenes:
Favorite 'Cinderella' story:
Boss & Me
One of my favorite couples:
My fave ensemble casts:
Some of the best chemistry I've seen in a drama. The drama as a whole wasn't that great but these two? Worth watching, Bromance:
Baron Chen and Megan Lai
One of my fave male leads The Greatest Love:
Dokko Jin played by Cha Seung-won
One of my fave female leads, Marriage Not Dating:
Joo Jang-mi played by Han Groo
Love these two:
Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun-hye
This drama hit my sweet spot. I know it's hit and miss for some but for me it was ace.
Hyun Bin and Ha Ji-won
A few of my favorite kid scenes~
Arang and the Magistrate
Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms
I'm also a huge fan of OST's. I'll usually find at least 1 song from an OST and fall in love with it. In the case of Secret Garden and Coffee Prince, it's practically the whole collection.
My all time favorite OST song would probably be You're My Spring by Sung Si Kyung. I also love his version of "She" from Elvis Costello. LOVE THIS GUY!!
Best compilation ever: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eG1XekNdBnM

You can call me Su, the ajumma from the Golden State. My friends and family don't quite get me but they humor me anyway. I'm married, have 2 kids and work with numbers for a living.
A lot of my spare time is consumed with Asian dramas. I used to joke all the time that it's been forever since I've watched American television. I may catch an episode of Modern Family, Big Bang Theory or Elementary.
MDL doesn't have Filipino movies in database. They're like little romance novels on film. Nothing award winning but for a light Sunday watch...
