Why I Love Korean series?

Most of my close friends know how much I love watching Korean series. Lately, nauso ang salitang “kinain ka na ng sistema” which means, Korean drama/series. I hate it when people said it to me. Why? I don’t know pero honestly, medyo naiirita ako because I’m watching it since grade school. Yet it all started from Taiwanese series, Meteor Garden. So, I also have my favorite Taiwanese series. Lately lang mas dumami ang nanuod ng K-drama dito sa Pinas. I don’t know why pero siguro dahil na din sa sumisikat ang K-Pop dito.

Going back to Korean drama, I like how they make the story, actors and film locations/sites. Stories are not just all about love but it is also about the role itself. For example, if the role is a doctor, they show how the job is done. Kumbaga, hindi lang siya basta nakasuot lang ng uniform. Minsan after kong panuodin yung series, pinapanood ko din yung behind the scenes kung paano sila mag-shoot ng palabas. Also, kung paano nila nagawa o nabuo yung story. Kung historical siya, paano nila nakuha yung information or kung paano nila ni-research about dun sa story. Hindi lang siya basta palabas. It’s also about learning the history, culture, and seeing the beauty of their country. Yun yung isa sa mga dahilan why I love to watch Korean series. Ang maganda pa sakanila ay yearly during drama awards ng per stations ay ipinapakita na nila yung trailer ng next series for the following year. Kaya alam na nila yung mga upcoming series. Most likely, bibihirang maulit sa isang project yung naging partner nila sa isang series/movie kaya may iba’t-ibang chemistry. So, hindi siya nakakasawang panuodin kasi iba-iba yung partner nila at yung concept ng story. Yun ang difference sa kanila. Kung minsan, hinahanap ko yung series or movies ng fave actors ko.

Ang nakakatuwa din sa mga actor sakanila, minsan nagbibigay sila ng gift like food truck sa film location ng isang friend nilang actor as part ng support. Pwedeng naging close nila sa isang drama/movie or magkapareho sila ng agency. Sometimes, surprise visit sa fan-meeting ng fellow actor or giving flowers as congratulations sa new project. That’s how they give support sa fellow actors nila.
