KDrama Marathon

I've been able to control my enjoyment of Korean Dramas for over 1 1/2 years, averaging one episode per day, except for an occasional two episodes (and a rare three episodes) on weekends.

Well, that changed over this year's Christmas/New Year's holiday. During the past three days I've watched the first 16 episodes of Iris (아이리스): 5 episodes on Saturday, 4 on Sunday, then 7 yesterday (Monday).

Learning Korean: My Experiences So Far

It's been over a year since I started watching Korean dramas. Early in my KDrama adventure I decided it might be fun to actually learn a few words or sentences I was hearing.

Here are the steps I've taken so far:

1. Purchase the Pimsleur Korean Language CDs.

50 Korean Dramas

This week I reached a new milestone when I finished watching "Pasta"--my 50th complete Korean Drama in just over 18 months. Some have been better than average; others have been worse. One thing is certain: They are orders of magnitude better than American television.

I look forward to the next 50 KDramas!

Where to Watch Korean Dramas

Friends frequently ask me where to watch Korean Dramas. Before I mention places I've watched them, you'll probably guess that they are shown in Korean--without subtitles (of course).

Korean Drama

American television used to be interesting. In the past 10-20 years, however, it had become just plain boring. Last year I discovered the South Korean television. Now TV is interesting again. Thank you to my friends for introducing me!

Welcome to my world of KDrama!

Korean Drama and the Ides of March

It was exactly one year ago today--March 15, 2013--that we watched episode 1 our first Korean Drama, "Secret Garden."

During the past year we have rarely (if ever) missed a day when we didn't watch at least one episode of some KDrama. We have watched 38 from start to finish, and are currently over half-way finished with our 39th. (Click this blog's Korean Drama tab to see what we've watched-ranked from most to least favorite.)
