As opposed to movies or TV, I like to escape the tediousness of life through books. That not withstanding I have to admit that I might be obsessed with Korean drama series. When my family and friends found out, they were shocked, and dare I say, a bit scandalized. The usual line was "how can such a no no-nonsense person like you like Korean dramas?"
I, like most people I know, found Korean dramas in secondary/high school where girls were giggling over how lovely the guys were to look at.
But I really disliked the cheesy storylines. At first.
Then I was hooked.
And after my explanations below, you're likely to get hooked too (yes, even if you're a no-nonsense person as I supposedly am).
1. Drama. Drama. More drama. Infinte drama.
If like me, you have a rather boring or uneventful daily life, Korean dramas are for you. I lead a boring life by choice because I just can't deal with the complications and complexities of an otherwise active one. With Korean movies, you get a bit of excitement with no complications and/or consequences.
