It all started with a small one, thanks to my Mongolian and Nepali roommates, a single Korean movie A Moment to Remember , and what is life if not progress, right from there i was shown another facet of Korean Cinema, Korean Drama and i fell in love. It went from Personal Taste , to Boys before flowers , to the more recent City Hunter. It’s a crazy ride, i mean no one can come up with stories and act in them the way these guys do. It was just crazy.
I have been hungry and sleepless because one episode is just not enough. Those people who watch such dramas they are always no eat-no sleep- no talk- no blink mode for the sake of not missing the action, its not like you can change the channel and its never a case of lets watch it later, it’s always and always a case of let’s finish this of, no matter i haven’t showered or that I haven’t gone to work or I am pretending to work and look busy while in my mind I am sorting out the plot and the characters. Sometimes the plot just doesn’t make sense, like Personal Taste, because there is no way that all that going on in there can ever be possible, it is too far stretched, it is over exaggerated and impossible, but that is the reason why it is so relate-able, because everyone wants over-exaggerated and impossible possibilities. Everything about it just pulls you in, you feel you
are a part of story and any progress in the story line is going to affect your own life. You just connect which each and every character, it is extremely engaging to the point that my family just ignore me now, when i am on a drama run there is no way you can disturb me, or even talk to me because i can’t even hear you.
I just finished watching City Hunter , it is an amazing drama, with awesome characterization and once you are done watching
all the 20 episodes, you’ ll want to send a personal note to the director begging him to make a sequel.It is political without being boring, action-filled without being disgusting, it has suspense without being annoying, it is painful yet the kind you like, romantic with just the right amount of dreamy, but most of all it is so strongly human that you just feel like you are in that story, you relate to the their joy, their happiness and their disappointments.There there is only one but to this whole story it gets over quick, that’s the only horrible aspect of it, it gets over quick.
Currently i am in post-drama blues, it got over faster than I though itwould, and I wished it had just gone on and on and on and I am not the only one. But for now i ll try and get some work done while listening ,I ll shower and i ll eat and i ll get some sleep for only one reason , i have to stock up to watch City Hunter for the what seems to be a second time but will not remain my last time watching it.
This is really something you have to see, it will blow your mind away like it did mine and you’ll not regret it that’s a promise.
Just for the small thrills of this life
