Kinain ng Sistema: Hangul and Chopsticks.

As much as I hated how Ruler: Master of the Mask ended, my search for its OST on Apple Music kick-started my interest in learning the Korean alphabet. Hangul is a fascinating subject that I wondered why I never bothered with this many years before. Imagine my delight when I could finally read the characters on labels, store signs and even AsianWiki profiles of Korean celebrities.πŸ˜‰

I still have a lot to learn in terms of sentence construction but it’s fun familiarizing a few phrases from (free) online classes I’ve signed up for. There’s also this book we purchased many years ago that teaches you the basic pronunciation although nothing beats hearing it directly from a native speaker.

My re-discovered love for Korean culture motivated me to continue practicing how to use chopsticks. I’ve been learning the skill for years but I was never able to sustain it. Nowadays, I’m proud to say I have finally made some progress. I no longer fumble handling said utensils if we’re out for ramen or samgyeopsal.πŸ‘

All that’s really left is for me to visit the country itself and experience its culture firsthand. I’m crossing my fingers I can tick that off my bucket list by next year. If not, then I will continue to live vicariously through my K-dramas for the meantime.

Do you still remember your first K-drama? I don’t. It was probably a toss between Four Sisters and Fantasy Couple. Video streams were a rarity back then so I had to order DVD copies of fan-subbed dramas to be able to watch my favorites. The thing with K-dramas is that they’re easy to binge-watch. Just 16-20 episodes and you’re done with the story.

With the second wind of K-dramas on Philippine shores, thanks to the unexpected popularity of Descendants of the Sun last year, more and more people have been sucked into this black hole of a habit.Β Can you really blame anyone who fan-girls those gorgeous oppas?Β Besides, it’s always nice to ramble about these things with someone who gets your feels.😊 How awesome is it though when someone loves a drama you recommended?

If you’re a newbie or simply at a loss on what K-drama to start with after a long hiatus, here are some of my recent tried and tested favorites:
