Korean drama is life.

Korean dramas are really popular right now. Many are fangirling over Song Joong Ki, Park Bo Gum, Lee Min Ho, Lee Jong Suk, and more good looking Korean celebrities that you can think of.

Whenever I watch K-dramas online, I usually see comments like “Oppa! I have an exam tomorrow, but I am here watching you.” Others say “I have class at 7 a.m. and it is now 3 a.m., staying up all night just to watch (insert K-drama title).” Some may say,┬á“This is the reason why I am still single. My standards are way too high,┬ábecause of Oppa!”┬áOr if you are watching an ongoing drama and you were not able to stop yourself from the temptation of click that Episode 1 and 2 button, you might say “A week of torture for the next episode.” Finally, if a drama ends, fans would go “My Thursdays and Fridays won’t be the same again (crying emoji).”┬áThese are just a few of the examples that you may experience or encounter when you are into K-dramas.

“Once you enter, you can never leave,” is what we K-drama fans say to people who are wishing to ruin their lives (in a positive way? Hahaha) and give up social life and sleep. Imagine, you look forward to something every week, or if you have lots of friends who has the same interest you can’t wait to fangirl with them, hate on the girl who is flirting with the main Oppa or just simply bash the writer Unnie for rushing the drama and leaving out some characters.

Also, that “just one more episode and I’ll go to bed” is a BIG JOKE! I always say this to myself and end up finishing 2 more episodes, plus staring at the ceiling for another 30 minutes just to sink in those┬áscenes and ask “WHY IS THERE NO PREVIEW?!”┬áPatience is a virtue, honey.

Of course, we international fans, are really thankful that subbers exist. SUBTITLE┬áIS LIFE. But if you are brave enough to risk everything and confuse yourself with what’s happening… you can watch it RAW and re-watch it after the subtitled episode is out. Again,┬áPatience is a virtue.

Here’s to more K-dramas and bigger eye bags! Cheers!

My First Kpop Album and Fan Meeting (ZE:A) DAEBAK!!

When I first got into Kpop, I was one of those teenagers that would do anything just to meet OPPA! Then, a golden chance came! Finally, a kpop band visiting my country and it is ZE:A!! I did not let this opportunity slip away. I was just a high schooler that time and like we all know not all teenagers get tons of money from mama and papa. Good thing, my allowances were there to fangirl with me!

As you can see I take good pictures hehe.

My friend and I just planned to watch them from afar since we were poor huhu ­čśş but we were itching to see them up close. We decided to risk our allowances, skip meals and go broke (nah, not to these extremes ­čśť). Eventually, we bought the album. This serves as our ticket to enter the premises and have Oppadeul to sign it.

Walking pass every fangirls’ biggest obstacle – barricades! Then slowly walking towards them. Eto na ‘to bes!

Finally, oppas before my eyes! (Our bags were taken before ascending the stage) Shaking, I got the first autograph. Honestly, you wouldn’t really comprehend what was going on. All you know is that oppas are right before you smiling and greeting you! It all happened so fast, until you reach the last oppa huhu.

It was a great experience, especially for a Kpop die hard fan.

Speaking of die hard, my friend was really jjang when ZE:A was about to leave. She accidentally obtained Min Woo’s water bottle. ­čśé

These all happened way back January 2012. I suddenly remembered this beautiful experience and thought that I should share it with other Kpop fans out there.

How about you, what was your first Kpop experience?
