DRAMAFEED AWARDS?

This month, I was pleasantly surprised to be nominated for two blogging awards from bloggers who have kindly looked upon DRAMAFEED.  Since I am lazy, I am going to combine the two awards in one page, because I am not sure if anyone wants to hear my ramblings on anything other than a Korean drama episode or entertainment news.  I apologize in advance that I do not nominate any new blogs because the rules seem to indicate that I am supposed to nominate blogs that “have less than 200 followers.”  I just spent an hour looking online for blogs that might be new as of January 2015 as I have no idea how I would determine how many followers that a blog has…It seems that all of the amazing blogs that I am stumbling upon have been around for over a year and would not satisfy this requirement.

So, I’m just going to answer the posed questions from Elle and Blue.

First, Elle at Worth the Drama nominated this blog for the Liebster Award.  Thank you Elle!  By the way, I love Elle’s glossery of drama recaps.  In case, you ever want to refresh your memory about an older drama, Elle has your back.

The Questions:

1) Why did you start blogging?

Well, I love watching dramas and talking about them.  Unfortunately, usually my friends only follow one or two of the dramas that I am watching.  So I thought why not just blog my thoughts and get them off my chest?

2) How did you come up with your blog’s name?

^^;;; I  was feeding my cats…

3) What have you found the most challenging about blogging?

The amount of time that it takes to stay committed.  There was a one month gap during my new blogging adventure when I got busy with my non-blog life.  It was a task to catch up once the dust settled.

4) What was the first Korean drama you ever watched and how did you discover it?

I can’t remember exactly, but I think the one that I actually remember is 3 Guys and 3 Girls.  It was a sitcom drama.

5)  What is your all-time favorite song from a K-drama OST?

Sorry; don’t have one.

6)  If you were stuck on a deserted island with only two K-dramas to watch (in perpetuity), which dramas would you choose? Why?

All About Eve.  I might just take this one and watch and re-watch it… I end up spazzing about this in my questions below so I will just refer to my answer below.

7)  Name your top three favorite second leads from a K-drama.

Won Bin from Autumn’s Tale

Kim Hyung Jong from Boys Over Flowers

8)  What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

I can sleep for 17 hours, eat, and go back to sleep. ^_^

9)  What is your favorite word?

Right now, bingsu ^__^

10) Coffee or tea?

Tea

11) What inspires you?

Dreams whether they be actual dreams or day-dreams inspire me.

Additionally, Blue at K-Drama Endings nominated this blog for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.  Thank you Blue!  I loved checking out your blog and think the final series recaps is a great idea!

The Questions:

1) Is there a popular drama that you actually never liked? If so, tell us why.

I hope that I don’t offend anyone, but I never really liked Coffee Prince.  I think this was when Korea was first starting to remake a lot of Japanese dramas.  I thought that there were too many elements of similarity between Coffee Prince and the Japanese manga Beautiful You.  Since there was no mention or recognition of the similar elements, even a simple nod to the fact that the writer was inspired by Beautiful You, I got turned off.

2) Which drama trapped you forever in Kdramaland? How did you get to know it?

All About Eve.  Hands down.  This one is an oldie from 2000.  It is STILL one of my favorite dramas and I highly recommend it for anyone who has not scene it.  The lighting, make-up fashion is kind of cringe-worthy.  However, the story, acting, directing? Marvelous!  Jang Dong-Gun’s character in All About Eve is still my ideal man, whose only rival would be Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice.

There are so many elements about this drama that I love that I can’t quite list them all.  However, a couple of the factors are that the main character girl was not a poor Candy.  She came from a middle class family, even if her mother had passed away.  Additionally, she did not wait for her prince charming to come and save her…although, to his benefit, JDG did save her from behind the scenes several times…Rather, she took her education into her own hands and fought her way to professional success.  All the while, she and JDG end up having this most adorable romance.  Yes, I’m a fangirl for this drama and I am not embarassed about it.

3) Is there one unknown/barely known drama that you found amazing? If so why? What was good about it? Take this opportunity to promote it.

Hmmm, I really enjoyed the drama No Children Better Life aka 유자식 상팔자 which despite the title was about a large family and the two main generations… 🙂

4) What is your favorite drama OST?

No Children Better Life aka 유자식 상팔자.

5) What is your favorite korean dish?

Not sure if it counts but I love Injeolmi-Bingsu…This is a saved ice dessert made from shaved milk ice with injeolmi (a rice cake) flour sprinkled on top.

6) What kind of post do you enjoy writing most?

Drama recaps of episodes that I really enjoyed!

7) Which actor/actress makes you cry every time they cry?

I think I am very circumstantial.  No actor/actress can make me cry every time just because of his or her crying.  Rather, the circumstances trigger my waterworks.

8) Tea, coffee or hot chocolate?

Citron tea!

9) Besides korean dramas do you watch tv shows from other countries? Which countries?

Yes,  I watch American shows, Japanese dramas and Taiwanese dramas.

10) If you could be one kdrama character for a week, who would you be?

This is a secret >.<

 

Thanks to everyone who took the time to give this a read!  Also, let me know if you know of any newbie blogs! 🙂
