nope you're not!



i really liked Friends, it's about a Korean man and Japanese woman falling in love despite the language barrier and all the stuff they go through to try to be together etc. i really liked the actress and the guy is really cute!



then right after i watched God Give Me More Time which is starring the same actress. i forget her name at the moment. it's about a teenaged girl who contracts aids and then falls in love with a famous songwriter and all the crap they go through because of her disease. it's really sad, every episode had me bawling. awesome soundtrack.



i've seen bits of a few others but i think those are the only ones i saw right through. next on my list is Why Why Love which i think is more of a comedy

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

My parents, mostly my mom, are asian drama fanatics. The only one I've ever watched and liked is called 'My Little Chef', a Japanese series about a chef whose father, also a chef, died. He passed on his talent to her, and she has some unique perspective of her own. The drama part is that her family relations are f***** up. Her parents didn't see eye to eye, and her mother had almost no part in raising her.



Then there was one about a therapist, her group of friends, and their love lives. The therapist goes on a date with a crime lord, whose rivals show up during the date. When the rivals leave, the guy tells the therapist, 'I usually can't stand up to my cousin(his enemy), but when you are with me, I feel so hard...I mean tough.'*insert blushy moment*. The series is quite funny.
