I’ve been watching Korean dramas since mid-2005. Since then I was hooked. And I guess detaching will take me almost forever.
My Top Ten Dramas of All Times

  1. Dae Jang Geum (Jewel in the Palace)
  2. City Hall
  3. Pasta
  4. Daemul (whether it ends great or not)
  5. Star’s Lovers
  6. On Air
  7. Princess Hours (Goong)
  8. Endless Love: Winter Sonata
  9. You’re Beautiful
  10. My Name is Kim Sam Soon

A common denominator I noticed in most of my top choices  is having “empowered female leads” (Seo Jang Geum, Shin Mi Rae (City Hall), Seo Hye Rim (Daemul), Seo Yoo Kyung (Pasta), Oh Seung Ah (On Air) and Kim Sam Soon.  Well, I’m not saying they are totally independent of men. But they are not much of the “Cinderella” or “Candy” type of characters as drama critics would call the meeker women in dramas of the 90’s. I wish I can grab an original DVD copy of all these 10 dramas, because I can watch them over and over and over again and won’t get enough of it. But so far, I’m very thankful that I have the City Hall DVD.  It’s my first ever original korean drama DVD.

Last week, I was wondering if I should get a job on watching and writing about dramas. I certainly won’t get bored and will work to the fullest! Haha! Me and my drama addiction. Tsk, tsk!
