How did you get introduced to K-Drama?

Post by Bam-Bam » Nov 20th, '05, 14:10

I think for me,

I was reading some Korean news stories about how Winter Sonata became very popular in Japan. Considering the history between these two Countries, the fact that a Korean Drama was a major hit in Japan got my curiosity up. So, i decided to check out Winter Sonata by Googleing and downloading from this site.

And after watching the first few episodes of Winter Sonata, I was instantly hooked. I've never seen anything like this, not even in American TV which is pretty bad to begin with.

Well K-Drama has conquered Asia, and it's becoming more popular in America, thanks to internet, and Korean stations in American cities.

for me it was the owner of a video store...hehe The man told me that I "needed" to watch it and if I didn't like it I can ask for a refund...hehe :roll so I took it home and completely got into the Korean wave...haha :whistling: and I took my sister along for the ride... we're totally addicted now... 8) The name of the Drama was Endless Love AKA An Autumns Tale... with Won Bin and SSH in it...haha that was the first time I realized how hot Korean guys could be... :whistling: Well, anyways... that was how I got into the wave :lol

My best friend, who is half-Korean, kept telling me about this wonderful drama that she used to watch and cry over with her mom. The drama? Stairway to Heaven. Not long after seeing that, I read online about Densha Otoko and thought it was the cutest story ever. Having seen these two excellent dramas, I was hooked forever!

me?..well, my lito sister downloaded a korean drama for the first time...she didn't know what it was but everyone kept saying it was a great show... when the download was complete we watched it together...it was Full House! we were so surprised to see Bi/Rain!!!... which was kind of ironic because we just saw his music video at the korean music countdown on TV that nite(we didn't know he acted as well^^;;)
...and ever since then i've had a craving for kdramas^____^

I downloaded a Korean Drama thinking it was a Japanese Drama (for some reason I overlooked that imporant fact), but to my suprise I turned out to like it, so now I look out for drama from both :salut: I'm still pretty new to Kdramas though.

I've known for their existence and potency for a while, probably since the time the recent Korean Wave made big news internationally. I was acutely aware of their addictive properties. For that reason alone, I stayed away from them. I knew that I would be sucked in if I caved.

Only very recently did I finish a whole kdrama. It was Full House, of course. I was actually curious to find out what made Song Hye Gyo so extremely popular around here. I considered it a sort of investigation more than entertainment. Although now, I have a somewhat higher respect for Bi. I tend to be skeptical of the abilities of a singer who turns to acting, or vice versa. In America, it's rarely a good career move when a celebrity switches modes of media. I can put down a list of failed singing careers of actors, and failed attempts at acting by singers, but I think you all already know it all.

I've moved on, now watching All In. I had actually planned to watch All In first, but Full House ended up downloading a whole lot faster, and I was getting too impatient.

Started watching Kdrama when I ran out of Jdrama to watch. Full House was the first that hooked me.

Started watching Jdrama when I lost interest in Anime (Still not sure if I outgrew anime or the quality in general has deteriorated).. Densha Otoko was the first that got me interested in dramas.

I was just surfing the web and kinda bored when i happen onto the jtv site. Was sorta curious what kdrama was like. So i downloaded Bright Girl, and liked it. But generally i dont watch that much kdrama, because its usually just about love triangles.

Around 1998s, I heard alot about Korean movies (Doctor with Jang Dong Gun and Lee Young Ae), but at that time I was only interested in Hong Kong movie. I rented some K-drama but wasn't really hooked by it at all. But I was into Korean Music though :D I like SES and read stuff about them. Then I know Eugene was starred in Loving You. I downloaded the movie, that is also when I know about bittorent and the whole process of watching K-drama with English sub :D. Then I downloaded My Love Patzii and that is when i started my K-drama fever

i've attended a korean church my whole life ~
and my mom always watched k-dramas [shes korean] but my dad and i always jeered at them being goofy and over-dramatic.

but then all the people my age were talking about "ga-eul donghwa" which i still never finished, then i started to get interested. then came stairway to heaven, so i decided to try it. i loved it. i only got to ep. 12, though T_T

then i decided I had to finish one, then i found this place. then i clubboxed all of samsoon from touya [you rock.] now i'm working on full house =]

i used to watch chinese/taiwanese dramas to improve my language skills (yes i am trying to learn chinese ;) and the mother of my language exchange partner from nanjing just gave me a whole bunch of dvds/svcds with korean and chinese dramas....and the first one i picked was "misa" because the chinese title sounded so stupid to me....and well...because so ji sub is one of the very few asian actors i consider attractive ^.^; so that ´s how it all began...it´s always some mothers fault i get addicted to something (my mum bought me my first mangas...i think secretely she still hates herself for that *lol*)

It was when i was 11 years old,
i didnt know the difference betwwen korean drama and chinese ones -_-,
so i just watch and watch whatever my mom borrows from her friends,
and i realize my mom said how much she loved Korean dramas.
Well it was Winter Sonata that she borrowed,
but i wasnt into it..thought after wathcing it with my mom, its so addicting!

i just discover looking through this site, how many korean dramas i havent watched,
usually its the one thats not very popular i watch :P
But stairway to heaven made my family into a couch potato for a few days :glare:

It went like this for me:
1. Ran out of anime.
2. Decided to search for Japanese dramas and stumbled across jtv's site.
3. The first 4 episodes of Bright Girl's Success Story were available for download, and I was intrigued because I hadn't had any exposure to Korean culture until then. So I downloaded them and really liked them.
4. Googled the series and found it on jem's website via D-addicts.
5. Started furiously downloading all the dramas I could find and got my roommate hooked on them in the process.

I rememebr the first time I knew there were korean dramas was when I watched "Friends"..however,that drama didn't really get me so interested in Kdramas
then in after few months I was talking this friend and she had the song "My Memory" by Ryo playing in the background,so I asked what that song was called and who sings it,so she gave me the title..and as I started searching for the song,I found out that it was an OST for a drama called "WInter Sonata" so I've decided to download and watch it XD and ever since,I've mostly been downloading kdramas even tho I was a jdrama fan XD

My first K-drama was Winter Sonata. It was the first K-drama ever played on TV. I thought it had been popularly commercialized by the TV station and it got me all curious about it. So I gave it a try and I actually fell in love with it.

So I guess the TV station responsible for getting me into K-dramas.

My mum got me into it...she went back to HK one year (many years ago) and they were broadcasting Autumn Tale dubbed in cantonese...she only managed to watch a few episodes as they only broadcast it on sunday nights...when she came back to england, she told me all about it and cos I always buy chinese/japanese cds, dvd (films and series) from the net, she asked me to find Autumn Tales for her...I found out that it starred Wonbin who I had liked since he first started out as an actor...so we watched it together when I brought it...we fell in love with the series...I started hunting down for Wonbin series and Mum wanted me to hunt down Seung Song Hun's series...after we'd watch all the dramas I managed to find of theirs we moved on to other k-dramas...mostly from recommendations from this site, Asianfanatics or Yeasia!!

Well, I Soompi a lot o_o.. When a good drama comes out, it starts going around everywhere no matter which subforum or topic, it comes out. It gets me curious when I hear it and if it goes on for a long period of time, I just download it.

A few years ago my little sister was into the Olsen twins so I thought I would download a couple episodes of the 80s series Full House to show her where they started out. I still remember what went through my head as I opened the episode?
- Why does it look like it was shot on a camcorder?
- Why aren't they speaking english??
- What is this?

I remember thinking the plot of the episode was pretty outrageous (a friend sends you on a trip to secretly sell your house?!) but I stuck with it because it was so different from american/aussie tv and eventually enjoyed it.

- Why does it look like it was shot on a camcorder?
- Why aren't they speaking english??
- What is this?

I remember thinking the plot of the episode was pretty outrageous (a friend sends you on a trip to secretly sell your house?!) but I stuck with it because it was so different from american/aussie tv and eventually enjoyed it.
hahahahahahaha!!! :lol Did you make you sister watch the Korean Full House with you, too? Haha, funny way of being introduced to kdramas =P.

Anyway, I was first introduced to kdramas at home... eh.. when my mom was watching Stairway to Heaven.

.....

Kwon Sang Woo was so good-looking :P

I liked this Korean guy who was totally obsessed with being korean and me being russian. One night as a joke I decided to watch KBS so i could complain about how horrible it was. But instead some drama (to this day I will never know which one it was) was on, and immediately I was hooked. That was when my obsession started. Of course, the next day I found out the guy didn't really watch korean dramas. oo well, it was so worth it.

I was channel surfing one night and I stumbled across the 2nd episode of Goong[/b on KSCI-TV/ LA 18](There were already 14 episodes out by this time) I fell in love with it and that's when it all started.

Now I can't get enough of K-dramas. They're a good mix of comedy and drama. Just simply fantastic!

When winter sonata first aired in my country it was dubbed in chinese so I never pay attention to it coz I hate series that have been dubbed. Then my sister buy the original winter sonata DVD, but still I didn't even bother to watch 'till summer 2002 I was bored to death. So I decided to give it a try. When I watch a few episode my first impression is 'Woff, this is totally different!' I get hooked and finish that 20 episodes in a day (not sleep that night either just to know the ending!). 'till now I still can't let go of the wave. Still goin' crazy over all those k-drama. I love k-drama more now than J-drama and T-Drama.

my best friend @ school is korean, and she kept on raving about full house, and I have another friend who loves taiwanese dramas and is always saying the best way to learn a language is to watch dramas....

I ended up taking chinese anyway, but I think k-dramas are the best :wub:

When I was small I always watched HK drama series and JP drama series. The one that I remember the most was "Oshin" (old drama series).

Then I moved to USA and do not know how to get to watch all the asian drama series until my good friend told me about "DaeJang-geum" (Jewel in the Palace)!! OMG!! Its the best drama series ever!

Since then I got hooked with Korean drama series and try to learn the beautiful language (thru search on internet, kinda hard tho ;o( ) .

After that, i got to know this awesome site from my friend and start to download Korean Drama Series everyday.... im so addicted to it!!

Thank you for everyone that make this possible to me to download these and for ppl that take their time to make the subs!!

Thanks again! <3

my first korean drama was full house. i was flipping through channels and came across the first episode of it and since it had english subs and there was nothing else on tv i watched it... and since then i've been hooked, even though i seem to watch jdramas more than kdramas.

My cousin told me abt the Kdrama....

Then I found it here....dl'ed it.... (i'm on ep13)
and I've been trying to find more romatic comedies ever since....
OMG, i'm like dying in laughter with Samsoon....
