Welcome to the sixth day of the 2020 Love Blog Challenge! Today’s prompt is Fictional love. Check out the announcement post for all the prompts and rules this month. You can still join the link-up for Friday’s topic, Money.
I love watching Korean drama on Netflix. Next to K-Pop, there is Korean drama then Comedy specials.
The storyline is almost the same. There is a love triangle or square and the girl is a damsel in distress. The guy will be from a rich family and the parents will most likely interfere with the relationship.
The other guy in the relationship might be the Chairman’s son, or someone closely associated with the main character. Despite the familiar plot, I love Korean drama. I’m here for the guy to sweep the girl’s feet away, love triangles, and happy endings.
My favourite Korean actor is Lee Min-ho who plays Gu Jun Pyo in Boys Before Flowers. Now that’s an actor I had a crush on. I know a series will be good when I see his face. I’m a simple girl, I see his face, I click.
Korean Drama Evokes Happiness, Sincerity and Drama
Although it’s fictional love, it’s hard to believe it’s not true.
There is something very romantic about the Korean language and it has grown to become a language I love and understand.
I watch with English subtitles on and listen to the series in its original language. One thing I noticed is that they’re not afraid to say what’s on their mind and hearts which makes the drama even more of a feel-good drama.
I don’t know if it’s their culture or if its pure acting.
Korean Drama is Kind of Emotional Porn
It’s very easy for such dramas to instil the wrong notions of love in young people. I’ll be the first one to admit that my single self has watched an entire series (usually 20 episodes ) in one sitting and left feeling head over heels in love.
Unless you’re dating a prince, such grand gestures of love in real life are not possible but then the lead actor is usually from a super-rich family in which case it makes sense.
