i love me some korean dramas!

....and i'm not ashamed to say it either. i've been on a korean drama kick lately, even got others hooked.

usually i will only watch an episode here and there, but lately i've been going a little crazy. since i have the time, i've been watching a few episodes a day. here's a few that i've enjoyed:

i loved moon geun young in autumn's tale so i was excited to watch this one....of course, the guys aren't bad to look at.

one reason why i wanted to watch this was b/c of kim bum (boys before flowers), but to my surprise, this one is as crazy as a korean drama can get. what's described as the korean sex in the city without all the hbo stuff, the story revolves around 3 single ladies in their 30s. the story was a little crazy: older girl falls in love with a younger guy (10 years younger), older girl's ex wants to get back together until he falls in love with an older woman who just happens to be the younger guy's mom (who had her son at a very young age). crazy, right?

couldn't get enough of boys before flowers so i watched playful kiss (recommended by a friend) starring kim hyun joong from boys before flowers. this one was a lot of fun to watch, reminded me a lot of goong, they even had the teddy bears at the end of each episode.

this is boys before flowers set in the joseon dynasty. this one has everything: friendship, evil ambitious politicians, secret missions, girl pretending to be a boy, boy likes girl who's pretending to be a boy, boy struggles with liking a boy who actually is a girl pretending to be a boy. i finished this one really quickly b/c i couldn't take not knowing what was going to happen next.

side note: korean dramas have the best cliffhangers at the end of each episodes that make you want to keep watching. previews for the next episode do the same, too.

this one was so funny, then got serious, then funny again. the story is like freaky friday where the guy and girl end up switching bodies, which makes for some pretty funny scenes. i love hyun bin ever since my name is kim sam soon (another must watch).

currently watching: dream high

this is like korean fame, it's so much fun to watch with so many korean idol singers. the best storyline is the one between pilsook (a chubby girl) and jason (the best dancer/singer in the school). in episode 8 she confesses her love for jason who only likes her as a friend at this point. she asks him if he would reconsider her after she loses weight in 200 days in which he accepts. her diet is pretty crazy and funny - "eat breakfast like a queen, lunch like a commoner, and dinner like the poor". can this diet and jump roping really make you lose 30 kg (about 66 lbs) in 200 days? i thought she looked cute even with the fat suit - reminds me of monica from friends who wore the fat suit, but not as big.

here's the video of her transformation (4:01-8:40, 9:23-10:40)

Hi, I am a girl who loves Dream High and I was just thinking if that´s true, that you really can lose 30kg in 200days, eating and training like this??
