K-Drama Fever

Am I the only one who wants to learn Korean because of K-Dramas? I learned few words and phrases by watching K-Drama. I think I will be learning Korean slangs if I take note of the common expressions.

I watch K-dramas almost every day, and they are my favorite Asian dramas. That is not the reason I learn Korean though. Do you have any favorites?

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

I agree that exposure to Kdramas is one factor for your desire to learn the language. The same thing for me when I got exposed to Animes. I wanted to learn Nihongo. But when I got too busy to watch the latest anime hits ( or maybe I just outgrew it), my desire to learn Nihongo just went down my priority list.

That's cute. What KDrama genre do you prefer to watch? I like fantasy, historical and romcom. Sometimes I get interested in some medical Kdrama- like BRAIN.

But my all-time favorite was Endless Love - Winter Sonata. It was such a hit back then that an Anime Version was created. And I believe that was the first Korean hit drama that captured a lot of Filipino audiences. And more Kdramas followed after that. hihi

Kdrama is a such a big thing right now. They're always trending on Netflix. I'm currently watching 100 Days My Prince. (?) Not sure if I get the title correctly.


A lot of people in the Philippines are picking up Korean words because of Kdrama fame. Words such as "Oppa" "Saranghae" and common Korean words have become integrated with our language.

I do! One of my favorites is called Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo.

True! I think one person should have like a strong drive to learn language

Right! I remember when it aired in the PH, I was still a child but I watched it anyway and enjoyed it very much.


I am also into Romcom and I have a lot of favorites actually, Fight for my Way is one! Medical dramas are so good too. I recently watched Doctors and Hospital Playlist (and I am very much excited for season 2).

Speaking of medical drama, I have watched some episodes of BRAIN but I haven't finished it yet. Will do that one I'll have more time :)
