List your top 10 Korean dramas from 2013-Now? (Order them randomly, and it would be great if you add why for some of them.)
Master’s Sun (magical pair), Dating Agency Cyrano (the giddiness I felt for Lee Jong Hyuk and Sooyoung’s love line), Two Weeks (so simple and yet so gripping—both emotionally and in thriller sense), School 2013 (the bromance and feels), Incarnation Of Money, Prime Minister and I, You From Another Star, I Hear Your Voice.

If you were to live the life of any KDrama character, which character would you choose and why?
The supporting character who helps to unite the main couple. Also, I can have a love line with the second male lead. LOL.

What’s the most annoying thing that you probably see or hear in every KDrama?
The annoying in-laws, the clinging and obsessive one-sided love of antagonists, wrist grabs, misunderstandings/ wrong timings, the heroine doing crazy things after over-drinking.

An adorable phrase or word a character said very frequently?
Hmm. There are lots and lots of them.

You’re the director of Man from Another Star and Kim Soo Hyun is already taken by another drama. Which actor would you choose and why?
Won Bin. Because I want to see him in a drama and it would have marked the small screen comeback of two elusive stars, sort of like a one-two punch.

What are your top 5 scenes from currently airing dramas?
Many scenes from YFAS, PMAI as they are the only ones I recently watched.

What’s your recently favorite OST song?
I liked Step from Prime Minister And I OST.

What’s your idea of an ideal drama? Tell us the story and you may do the casting.
Best Friends get married due to family pressure and then they fall in love. Or the success story of an underdog.

Lee Min Ho in Faith, Lee Jong Suk in I Hear Your Voice, Kim Soo Hyun in Man from Another Star… There are a lot of super powered characters in dramaland. If you were to have only one of those super powers, which one would it be and why?
Teleportation. I can go wherever and whenever I want!

yupkigirl from Orange Jasmine Purple Yam

Tell us a bit on the name of your blog.
Well, I tried lots and lots of names but all were taken so finally this one sealed the deal. Basically I wanted a name that instantly describes my blog. Simple and straight.

If blogging is going to be outlawed (not that it will happen) and it’s going to be your last post, what will you write about?
A list of all the dramas that I love to pieces and why. Plus, a detailed story of how I came into dramaland. And all the positive points of drama watching.

Which character in a film or drama is closest to your personality?
A mixture of lots of characters actually.

Name your most favorite place.
Home sweet home!

When was the last time you laughed so hard tears were coming out of your eyes?Watching a Friends episode. I’m currently watching it, so like one or two days back.

How has watching dramas changed your life?
It has become a part of my daily routine to either watch or write about dramas. Reading all my favorite blogs is a must. I also get a lot of feel-goodness by watching dramas, and they help in lifting up my mood up. Also, I got to know about a new country and culture.
Gabby from Happy Memory
If you could travel back in time, what would you like to change?
 Time Travel dramas have shown us more than once that the change can have drastic consequences. Lessons learned. 🙂
Do you have any plans to learn the Korean language? If you have already done so, do you have any tips on how to improve your Korean language ability?

    I love that you picked a couple to replace from a show you haven’t watched, ha ha. You’re right, they had no chemistry, it was terrible. Also, hell yeah for teleportation, that’s totally the super power I want as well!

    And… Lee Seung Gi fans represent!

        It isn’t? Well drat, dramafever has it labeled that way, silly dramafever. Then I’ll change my answer to You From Another Star, because that’s the only other show I’ve watched that is labeled as a melo. I’m not sure why I haven’t watched more, but there it is.

        Rainy days where I can stay inside and curl up under a soft blanket, read, and sip coffee are my most favorite ever!
