My Second Love: Korean Pop/Dramas

Last night, I was too sleepy to schedule a post. Plus, my brain was too fried from work to even write a review. It'll be up tomorrow though! In the meantime, I wanted to share with you all my second love. I am obsessed with not only Korean pop music, but their dramas too.

Now, for those of you who don't know me. I'm not Korean. Far from it, I'm just a little ol' Greek girl. But, was I possibly Asian in my past life? I wouldn't be surprised! I have no clue what they are saying, but the lyrics and beats are always so catchy! The music has a tendency of uplifting my day.

Also, Korean dramas, are just as addicting! Below, I have a few songs I am jamming too and some of my favorite dramas. I hope you enjoy the post, and hopefully I can bring some newbies to the Asian side! Bahahaha. ;)

:: MUSIC ::


:: DRAMAS ::

Shin Ji Hyun was enjoying absolute bliss as she was about to marry her fiancé, Kang Min Ho, but her perfect life is shattered when she gets into a car accident that leaves her in a coma. She is given a second chance at life by a reaper, but it comes with a condition: she has to find three people outside of her family who would cry genuine tears for her. In order to do this, she borrows the body of Yi Kyung, a part-time employee at a convenience store for 49 days.

WATCH IT HERE:

Jan Di is an average girl whose family owns a dry cleaning store located near the luxurious and well known Shin Hwa College. Jan Di meets the four richest and most spoiled boys known as the F4. After saving a boy from jumping off the roof of Shinhwa High School, she is admitted into the school on a swimming scholarship. Jan Di tries to avoid confrontation with the F4 at all cost because she knows what happens to those that stand against them. However, when Jan Di's friend, Oh Min Ji, accidentally gets ice cream on the leader of the F4's shoes, she's forced to declare war on the leader of the F4, Goo Joon Pyo. What will happen though, when she falls in love with someone from the F4 and Goo Joon Pyo start feeling something for her too? Will the love triangle disrupt F4 and change their lives forever?

WATCH IT HERE:

The management company of the idol group A.N.JELL insisted on adding a new singer to the group as the lead vocal, Tae Kyung's voice was hurting. However,the new member, Mi Nam, had to go to the States to repair a botched eye job just before signing the contract. His agent came up with the idea of having his twin sister, Mi Nyu,to stand in for him and pretend that she was her brother. The two of them grew up in an orphanage and Mi Nyu, who was all set to become a nun, agreed to this charade as she didn't want to spoil her brother's chance of fame which would make it easier to look for their mother.

WATCH IT HERE:

A spunky 35-year-old housewife, Yoon Gae Hwa, takes on the job of manager to prickly top star Sung Min Woo in order to earn enough money to regain custody of her child from her ex-husband. Romantic hijinks and hilarity ensues when they find themselves in an awkward living situation as Min Woo pays Gae Hwa to take care of his daughter, Ye Eun.

I used to work for a company owned by a Korean family and several of the people that worked there used to go to a store that put the dramas on DVD a week or so after they aired in Korea so people could get their fix!

Really fun post!

2NE1 is flippin awesome! They haven't come out with a single yet that I haven't fallen in love with. It's so much fun to learn the dances to their music ^-^ Bom is so cute! I love her new hair (I miss the purple though)

Miss A is slowly making me fall in love. I thought Breathe was fun and I liked Good Girl Bad Girl and Good Bye is pretty cool.

I think you know already but Boys Over Flowers, You're Beautiful, and Oh My Lady are favorites of mine as well ^-^

Thanks for sharing!!!

I used to watch Koreanovelas religiously, but got tired of all the dying/depression. :/ SNSD is a great K-pop group though!

Cinnamon (A Thousand Little Pages) said...

K-Pop. Forever. ♥

Haha have you tried Secret Garden or City Hunter? They're both supposed to be super good. I've only watched a bit of City Hunter, though, and Lee Minho is just... I don't think words are needed.

I'm not as big a fan of Korean music or dramas, but I love Japanese music and dramas, which are similar! I was probably Asian in a past life as well. :)

I'm watching now "The Greatest Love" or "Best Love" and the story is so lovely and so sweet and funny. It's written by the same writers of "You're beautiful" So I recommend you to watch it, I'm sure you will love it. : )
Oh, btw, here is another fan of Korean dramas... I even started studying korean....: )

Have you ever watched 3-Iron (Bin-jip)?
One of the cable channels used to show late night foreign films including Korean movies and that is one that stands out. Old Boy is another.
