I recently stopped watching korean dramas for the last 6 months.
The reason? I want to get enough sleep and to feel refreshed my wellbeing at the same time.

As others might not get relate to my situation. It's crucial for me to continue watching those episodes. Having a dark eye bags and looks old. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Seriously?

I'm an avid fan of K-Drama. As far as I remember.More than 30 Korean Dramas I've watched since I hooked up.
As watching these episodes, I knew already those basic words that they used such as :
  • Hello/Goodbye- An-nyeong-ha-se-yo
  • Nice to meet you- Bang-gap-sum-ni-da
  • Thank You- Kam-sa-ham-ni-da
  • Excuse me/just a moment- Jam-shi-man-yo
  • I'm sorry - Chway-seong-ham-ni-da / Mi-an-ham-ni-da
  • Please (Please give) - Ju-se-yo

Kilig Moments - causing or characterized by a feeling of exhilaration or elation.

Everyone can relate to this feeling especially if you are watching a k-drama.
I am 28 and I have a daughter yet I still got this "kilig moment" ..


Year 2019 is almost over  Trying to catched up Korean series? Here’s some of Korean Dramas of 2018 which I like the most.

1. What's Wrong with Secretary Kim -(Hangul: ๊น€๋น„์„œ๊ฐ€ ์™œ ๊ทธ๋Ÿด๊นŒ; RR: Kimbiseoga wae geureolkka) is a 2018 South Korean television series starring Park Seo-joon and Park Min-young.
