Hi there. I recently got hooked on k drama (dec 2013) and found this site. Hope it's okay that I'm not in Chicago... none of my friends watch k drama so I have no one to talk to when it comes to my latest addiction... My fav k drama stars are
1) jang geun suk 2) so ji sub 3) lee joon gi 4) lee min ho
In that order.
I would love it if someone would respond! Thank you!
Hi, Fiona--Thanks for visiting us and I hope you can stick around. We have many people here who aren't from Chicago. East Coast to West Coast and in between, plus a bunch of other countries. Everybody's welcome here.
Are you watching any shows right now? If you want, you can start threads for them if we don't already have them and tell us which shows you like and don't like.
This used to be a very active forum, but in 2009 KBS suddenly pulled out of Chicago--they stopped broadcasting and left us with nothing. So the forum was quiet for a long time...but then last year we got KBS back AND we got MBC. So those of us here who are in the Chicago area have been very happy about that.
Thank you! I really do like it here. Been having so much fun reading all the threads.
I read in the Master's Sun thread that So Ji Sub is your favorite actor... I'm absolutely head over heels for him right now. What a gorgeous and funny man he is in TMS! I've watched it three times in a row now. Am going to watch Ghost next. I don't think I'll enjoy it as much as TMS but will try it, otherwise I'll go into SJS withdrawal.
Welcome to the board, Fiona! Always happy to hear from another k-drama fan! I am also a fan of So Ji Sub, have you watched "The Master's Sun"? Great drama! I also like to watch Korean shows like '2 Days, 1 Night' and 'Running Man'. I also listen to a a lot of drama soundtracks and K-Pop (especially a group called BigBang ) I watch on the drama website DramaFever.com.... Hope to hear from you a lot!
I liked the drama You're Beautiful, also! Loved your nickname for So Ji Sub-- perfect Another good drama with So Ji Sub is 'I'm Sorry, I love you' (checked out a couple of songs by Jang Geun Suk and your right- he's really good!)
Oh thank you for saying that about Jang Geun Suk, he's my baby!!
your pix is the guy from That Winter The Wind Blows, right? I actually don't know too many K actors' names yet... I apologize. I started watching that drama but had to bail. I'm just not cut out for sad stories, I just couldn't imagine that drama having a happy ending... I admit I'm a victim of Hollywood happy ending... I only do rom com k drama. I learned my lesson after 49 Days. I cried so much watching that drama I thought I'd end up in the hospital for iv fluid therapy. That's why I think I'm going to do Ghost next instead of I'm Sorry I Love You. This drama sounds too sad for me...
But I have to tell you the theme song to That Winter The Wind Blows is just beautiful. I have it on my iPod and I listen to it all the time.
It's so strange but suddenly I love everything Korean!!!
Wow-- you sound you have the k-drama "flu" bad! Don't feel bad though, a lot of people on this board would same thing about me and when I talk about BigBang (or Jo InSung)! I have watched 49 days and I agree-- it made me cry buckets. Sometimes it comes in handy to have a reason for a good cry.....I was so surprised when something bad happened at the beginning of "That Winter" that I just stared at the computer screen in disbelief it was so well acted! I have the OST for That Winter, The Wind Blows, too and it is really good. Ghost is a good drama, I can't remember too many details but it is a good drama. If you go to the "Other Shows" thread on this board, page 4 you can read the posts from when we watched Ghost-- but be careful you don't read things before you see that episode! (It is so great to "converse" with someone new on this board! Hope you stick around for a long time!)
Oh thank you, I'll look for Ghost in "other shows". I did start the drama and have watched 2 episodes but don't know if I can stick with it. Too much computer stuff. Gosh, I love seeing So Ji Sub in a different persona though. I love his eyes, and he has the most beautiful mouth. And his little frown just makes me melt...!!! I just want to say to him, " awwww, don't worry, you'll catch the bad guy!!!"
I do miss President Joo though... The sarcastic smile, the sidelong glance, the scarf under the shirt, the pinky ring (which I would hate on any other guy), him saying "Get lost!"... Okay, I think i need to watch TMS 4th time
yes, I have the K "bug" bad And my mom is very happy about it. She says my Korean has improved lots since December (which is when I got hooked on K drama). She doesn't really understand my adoration for Jang Geun Suk and Lee Joon Gi but she thinks So Ji Sub and Lee Min Ho are very cute.
How long has Jo In Sung been your favorite?
i started two new threads over in "general" neighborhood - will you take a look and tell me all your favorite K dramas???
