Every electrical appliance in my house from TV to refrigerator to microwave oven is by Samsung , I have a Hyundai car, the best seminar I’ve ever attended till date was by a Korean professor on change management, I have been constantly listening to the song ” What should I do” or ” ho to ka jo ” by Jang Guen Suk, the last thing I watched on DVD was a Korean serial. Looks like I’m going bonkers over everything Korean.
Korean movies, serials, songs and fashion has stormed our small town, here, Lee Min Ho , Gu Jun Pyo of Boys Over Flower is more popular than Ranbir Kapoor, his posters, key chains and stickers sell like hot cakes, the last time I was inside a theater I saw a teenager with his picture as her mobile wallpaper. Every teenager tries their level best to emulate the Korean actors in terms of hairstyle, cloths and mannerism. Sometimes I’m glad I was born early, being a teenager now must be so stressful, I’m sure I would have been a social outcast, but the downside is I have crush on Korean actors who are much younger to me, which according to one of my friend is pretty shameful 🙂
The first time I heard about Korean movies was 4 years back when my younger sister while doing her graduation from DU had a part-time job of teaching English to Korean students. While home on vacation she bought along some movies given to her by her students, and from the time I watched “A Moment to Remember” and “Classic” I got hooked to Korean movies. And now I can’t get enough of Korean serials which are fun to watch with beautiful songs and the best part is they are only 16 to 25 episodes long. My current favourite being ” You are beautiful”. The songs are so soulful and the lyrics are amazing.
So Cheers to everything Korean.
For anyone reading my blog here is a link to my favourite song from my current favourite Korean drama, maybe u’ll get hooked to it too. 🙂
