Lately when I get home from work, I do one thing.
I watch hours of Korean dramas. And it's getting ridiculous.
Of course they're all on Hulu... I don't know why I'm just discovering this! My uncle and imo (auntie) in California started me on this treacherous course last year during a visit. She's a riot. Check out the fanny pack she bought me! She made me wear this all around San Francisco because my purse lacked a zipper.
But, I digress.
Korean dramas are actually very popular across the globe. They have this weird power of sucking you in. Joel McHale would have a field day...
Anyway, I'm playing catch up to an older (teen) drama called Boys Before Flowers. It's about a headstrong girl who receives a scholarship to attend one of Korea's most exclusive schools. She gets bullied at first, but then two of the most popular boys (who belong to a billionaire's club) fall in love with her. Like I said, ridiculous.
But, from a cultural aspect, it's really fun! It's interesting to see what's popular in Korean culture. (ie: The main character calls herself a "zero-defect girl" because she hadn't even kissed anyone yet!) It makes me think of so many immigrants I've met over the years who told me they learned English through American television. It's actually pretty cool.
Anyway... anyone can enjoy. They all have English subtitles! If you want to message me here or on Facebook, I'll keep you posted on the drama. :)
