My 2013 addiction: Everything Korean

Yes, that has been my problem for 2013, a serious problem. I have become addicted to everything about Korea this year. It started with a Korean variety show which I accidentally watched starting May this year. I’m actually already drafting an entry about it in my blog but it stayed as a draft entry since July! Hahaha. It took me half a year to finally finish it. I guess I’m too busy catching up with my Kseries, Kdrama and the list goes on.

Here is my half a year worth entry:

For the past 2 month (read: May & June), I have been very quiet from social networking site, be it blog, facebook, twitter and even TV! Yes, I literally quit watching TV for the past 2 month.  I even stop following my favorite TV series (Scandal, Glee, Grey Anatomy and etc) in Astro StarWorld, 722 channels. It sound serious rite? I better not mention on how I prefer to stay at home rather than going out during weekend. Crazy me.

But I guess my obsession has slowly faded now since I’m able to write about it in this blog. *Peace*

I’ve been crazy watching a Korean variety show called Global We Got Married (GWGM). Before this, I could not understand Paparil obsession towards Running Man series (another Korean variety show). He practically trying to watch every single episode (they have 150++ episodes!!). Luckily, GWGM only has 15 episodes (phew!).

GWGM paired artist/idol from 2 different country to participate in a make believe marriage. Some sort like a fake marriage for them to experience a married couple life. Yes, I know. It sounds weird rite? How could I end up watching this kind of series? Hahaha. You peeps should try watching one of the episodes and u will know why :-P.

I would suggest starting from Ep1, Ep6 and Ep15.

For this season of GWGM they have 2 couples. The first couple is the popular Kpop idol, Ok Taecyon (2pm) from Korea and Emma Wui from Taiwan. And….my favorite couple, the one which hooked me up to this show, Lee Hongki (FT Island) from Korea and Fujii Mina from Japan. Their chemistry onscreen seems like watching a real couple falling in love. It warms your heart. (Ok, that is my biased opinion :-p).

And because of this show I fall hard with Lee Hongki band, FT Island. The band has a lot of great & catchy song. I’ve been around YouTube rooting for their song and live performance. Hence, for the past 2 months my playlist only consist of their song (yes again, crazy me).

 One of my favorite, You Are My Life by FT Island

Another one, a catchy upbeat song, I Want – FT Island

Even though FT Island is a Korean band but most of my favorite song is their Japanese song (You are My Life, I want, Theory of Happiness). Maybe I should start listening to Jpop or Jrock? Should I?

Ok, I should stop rambling or else I won’t be able to stop. I hope everyone is having a good day. Selamat berbuka peeps!

End of half a year worth entry :-P.

As a conclusion, you can say that my 2013 fill with everything Korean. Paparil and I ended up our Korean’s obsession year with a trip to Seoul last November. I will try to find time to share about our ‘everything last minute trip’. Bye for now. I hope we will meet soon and not at the end of Dec 2014. 

Coming soon...
