Haha, this is what u meant
Okay, honestly I had no idea Korean, Taiwanese, Thai, and Japanese dramas existed. Blame it on my ignorance. I used to watch a lot of American shows like Bones, Castle to name a few...But, I was getting tired of American shows! So, I started watching Spanish telenovelas b/c I have lots of Hispanic friends here in the U.S.! So, I got addicted particularly to Sorteligio (a telenovela), and wasn't able to find Eng. Subtitles for that. So, I searched for it on Google. And, that's how I found Viki.
..Now I have lots of Korean friends too! Ironically my 1st friend in the U.S.( now Best Friend) is Korean!
..I was very curious about her country's movies and what kind of dramas she watches?! One day after college we just met up and decided to eat after college got over! So, during our chat she began to tell me all about Korean K-pop music, dramas and movies! What she told me was enough for me to be interested in watching. And, with sites like viki, gooddrama, dramafever I had the benefit of watching it with Eng. Sub!
So, I started searching for K shows on Viki! And, I came across Personal Taste! I decided that would be my 1st K show I would watch b/c I found LMH really cute from the posters of this show. I watched that 2 times in a row! As, I wanted to get the hang of some words of Korean language! Plus no offence to other Asian languages, I find Korean language very soothing to my ears. I actually don't like my own language Hindi
now..u can see what the language has done to me! I liked Personal Taste and the actor so much, that I began to watch more K shows. Honestly I watched like 10 K shows before I finally watched BOF (For some reason, I was very hesitant to watch BOF)!
I had no ideas Mangas existed, so after I watched BOF I realized what things like Mangas meant!
Okay, and now a couple of weeks ago I got to know about K-pop music. As u can see I live in a world of total ignorance!
Now, I am addicted to 2NE1, Super Junior, Beast, BigBang, CN Blue, 2PM, 2AM, Infinite, JYJ! All the members of these bands, now I am a huge fan of!! I really wish I was born Korean though! They really have got the best music, the best shows and just really awesome culture! I respect that! I thank God that I came across these bands and these shows that now I am a die hard fan of!
