K-DRAMA; I Love Lee Tae Ri, Queen In Hyeon's Man, The Rooftop Prince

After TOPIK, I decided to take a break and I’ve been catching up on dramas by drama marathoning. I have this system whereby I watch all the dramas year by year starting with the oldest, and I usually go down the list alphabetically unless another drama catches my eye first.

I’m currently on year 2012 and completed 아이러브 이태리 (I Love Lee Tae Ri) and 인현왕후의 남자 (Queen In Hyeon’s Man). I’m almost done with 옥탑방 왕세자 (The Rooftop Prince). It’s the third time travelling drama in a row; why were there so many in 2012?! -_-;; Fortunately, they were all light, cute and funny. tvN usually produces good dramas too. It was good to finally see Kibum’s face after so long, I stayed up to finish 인현왕후의 남자 because it was just that good although some parts were draggy and I cried way too much, and 옥탑방 왕세자 has Yoochun~ ♡ I’m not being biased but his acting is pretty good. :3 The 3 supporting actors are also really cute together. ^^

However, as much as I’m a drama mania, I really need to start reading more Korean books instead. Thanks to watching way too many dramas, my listening isn’t too bad, but my reading speed is still pretty slow after 3 years. One of the reasons I find it hard to complete the TOPIK Reading section in the given time. I have much to improve and it’s going to take more effort to do so. Oops, I digress. Anyway, those dramas were fun to watch. ^^

LEARNING JOURNEY; Listening & Understanding

Omg, Sungkyunkwan Scandal is on TV! Watching it again is so much more fun now that I can understand lots more than I did in 2010. Plus I can identify the old ways of speaking! Hehehe.

This drama means so much to me because it got me through a hard time at work back then. So much love. Also, yay for the end of exams!

Korean Dramas

K-DRAMA; 최고의 사랑 Greatest Love

I just completed this drama. There was so much hype about it, and I’ve heard that it was fantastic and whatnot. However I thought it was just, well, good. While the storyline was good overall, I felt it was rather predictive. Then again, most dramas kind of feel like that. :p

I still enjoyed watching it though! It was pretty amusing to watch Cha Seung Won act all lovey dovey when his image is so manly. ㅋㅋㅋ Yoo In Ah’s character was rather annoying at the beginning, but it got rather cute towards the end.

K-COMIC; 내 여자 친구는 구미호 Comic Book

Thanks for lending me this, Constance! ^^ Spending the weekend doing what I enjoy most: reading and learning new Korean words! ♥

I watched this drama ages ago, and really liked it. Now I get to read it in comic book form! I’m not sure how much of it I’ll be able to understand at this point, but so far so good! ^^ Sometimes I actually surprise myself by how much I understand, lol.
