Questions by  from “Bright Little World”:

1. Why do you like dramas so much?

There are more than one reasons for it: they are really feel-good and make me happy, they have a complete story with a limited length and they have so much heart.

2. What was your first drama? If you hadn’t liked it would you still have continued watching dramas?

My first drama was Delightful Girl Choon Hyang. Yes, I would have continued to watch dramas as that show was one of the long list of dramas that I decided to watch and if it were not good, I would have tried another one. BUT it was simply awesome!

3. Give us one tip for balancing everything out- real life and watching dramas and blogging, please?

Watch dramas live: only 2 hours a week + the real life work + blog about it and that would take 4 hours maximum and don’t blog daily but weekly. I hope that helps…

4. Have you ever tried soju or makgeolli?

I don’t drink 😉

5. What are the top 5 places you would like to visit one day?

Hmm….actually there are so many…let’s see…Switzerland, Los Angeles, Seoul, Paris and Rome.

6. Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.

I love reading and my favourite writer is Agatha Christie and my favorite book series is Harry Potter.

-I love the smell of wet soil just after rain.

-My most favorite TV serial is Friends (1994-2004).

-My favorite food is rice.

-I used to read a lot of Nancy Drew novels in my school days and I still have a huge collection and I read them sometimes to get that nostalgic feel of good old days 🙂

Questions by BetsyHp from “Creating Volumes”:

  1. If you could have one mutant power, what power would it be?

Controlled Invisibility 😉

2. Breakfast, lunch or dinner?

Breakfast 😀 It always gives me good feelings while waking up…lol

3. Why a blog and why the k-drama?

I watched My Little Bride and in my search for more K-movies, by chance I found the world of dramas and after watching my first one, there was no looking back! I love how these dramas make me happy. Blogging started after getting inspired from so many blogs and I wanted to write my thoughts on it. Earlier I started as I loved dramas but now I love writing as well.

4. If you could be in a k-drama, what drama would you choose? And would you be an established character, yourself, yourself with mutant powers, fill-in-blank?

Hm, tough question….I think it would be You’re Beautiful. As for the character, I think I want to be the cupid between the main couple so that I can help them to solve their misunderstandings and have their happily ever after 🙂 Also I would like to have the romance with the second lead so that he can also have his happy ending 😀

5. If you created a second blog about something completely different from what you’re blogging about now, what would it be about?

Books or movies.

Questions by Erl from “A Mix Of Anything And Everything”

1. What is your motivation to continue blogging?

Learning new things about writing, dramas and my dear readers.

2. What is your favorite blog post, one that you have written?

The one I posted about “Writing a recap”.

3. How do you spend a typical weekend?

Sleeping, watching movies/ dramas, reading.

4. What has been your biggest blogging challenge so far?

I have encountered many since I seriously started blogging: technical, writing, attracting readers etc. but I think getting my first comment on the blog was challenging.

5. What is that moment in your life that you regret the most?

Again there are many, that can range from a very trivial matter to something big but I take the mistakes as a learning experience in life.

6. What are your favorite and least favorite drama clichés?

Most favorite: cold and arrogant drama hero who later changes due to love.

Least favorite: annoying in-laws, bitchy second female leads and birth secrets.

7. Do you post under your real name? Why or why not?

Snow_white is not my real name obviously…LOL 😀 Actually I think that blogging is a whole new world where I only talk about dramas and my thoughts on it. My real identity will not change anything about it and so it’s more convenient to separate the real and blogging life.

8. Who is your ultimate bias?

There are lots of actually. I like more than half of the actors of dramaland. Haha.

9. Are you a coffee or a tea addict?

I like both tea and coffee but I drink more tea (everyday) than coffee (occasionally)

10. What is your idea of a perfect drama?

A drama made intelligently but with lots of heart and a lovely couple with perfect actors and perfect chemistry, with an add-on feature of superb music. Basically, awesome direction, writing and acting.

Questions by Soori from “Second Lead Syndrome”

  1. What was your first drama (Korean or other Asian drama) and what made you watch it?

Delightful Girl Choon Hyang. I was in a continuous browsing phase of more and more dramas and I was selecting them based on their synopsis. The marriage of convenience theme is my favorite which attracted me to finally start watching this one from the long list I prepared.

2. When you start a new drama, what are your requirements (eg. the plot, poster, trailer, writer, or PD and so on….)

Plot and actors come first. Then comes the team behind the drama.

3. What story (drama story) had an impact on your life, or if there are any?

Keeping up the positive attitude is something I’ve admired in many shows.

4. What is your favorite OST and why?

There are lots of OSTs as my favorites and it’s really difficult to pick one!

5. What are your thoughts in regards of the weak female leads?

I seriously want dramaland to make stronger female leads who can make their own decisions, are no-pushovers and can rule the world! The weak female leads annoy me to no limit and I can take that they start out weak but improve for the better with time but the constant showcase of them being weak and weepy throughout the series is something that should be changed. I believe that females deserve to be portrayed as they actually are in real life: equal to men in all respects. These dramas do have an impact on people though in varying degrees and strong female leads can really encourage women even in a small way.

6. What character you find similar to yourself and why?

There are shades of different characters from different shows.

7. Do you have any actresses/actors you used to dislike but ended up changing your opinion about her/him/them after watching a (certain) drama?

I didn’t dislike anyone but simply thought that they are just mediocre. The recent example is Yoona who I found quite meh in the only drama I watched with her: 9 End 2 Outs but the view completely changed after her lovely portrayal in Prime Minister And I.

8. Which variety show is your guilty pleasure?

I don’t watch variety shows. Not my cup of tea 🙂

9. Which singer/s made you cry?

More than the singers, it’s the lyrics of a song that make me cry.

10. What would be your ideal drama story?

Two best friends with no initial romantic feelings for each other get married due to family pressure and then fall in love. With lots of love, heart, feel-goodness, skinship and humour!
