I was introduced to Kdramas about 3 years ago by fellow blogger, and writer friend, Jennie. She posted a picture of Pillar from Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, and I had to check it out. Little did I know that I’d experience my first second lead syndrome from the get go. Oh, Pillar, you got the girl in real life, that’s what matters.
I have many obsessions: reading, writing, most things geek related (Doctor Who and the Last Airbender/Legends of Korra being the most pronounced). But Korean dramas are what got me through a pretty deep depression. For months they were the only thing that could make me laugh. My family is very happy that time has passed, but it will forever make Kdramas close to my heart.
Makjang usually isn’t my thing. Done right though, it can be delicious. Sageuks are their own animal, but some manes of glory just can’t be passed up. Sungkyungkwan Scandal and Aarang and the Magistrate are two that make my top 10 favorite dramas. I admit, I totally lost it for Healer and it remains in my top five. Okay, maybe top three. When the Hong Sisters (the Master’s Sun writers) are on fire, they write my kind of silly. I can do procedural, but it helps if there’s a sexy vamp involved to keep it interesting. I also don’t usually do long dramas. I do venture into other countries. Japanese dramas are the best medicine when my current show is full of angst.
I love fangirling with other addicts and hope to have a lot of fun doing that here. If you want to check out my real life persona you can go to my author page for Jenny S. Morris at: https://www.facebook.com/JennyS.Morrs/
