I first started watching Kdramas back in the mid-1990s–before the Internet explosion–when there was limited Korean programming on TV, prompting me to watch those treasured episodes of beloved dramas at the
mercy generosity of my parents. Yeah, I was one of those kids who didn’t get any allowance money. I have to admit this definitely helped me appreciate the value of a dollar, which was what one episode cost back then. 🙂
Anyhow, I had been kicking around the idea of introducing older Kdrama series to the newer viewers but wasn’t sure if there’d be interest. However, NewKDramaAddict’s comment this morning got me thinking perhaps there might be an audience for this new little corner.
In very much the same manner as “Movie Monday,” I’m hoping to introduce an older drama that I loved, so much so that I actually now own a copy of it as part of my permanent collection. Yeah, I collect books and DVD boxsets…no surprise given my profession, right? 😉
There have been a number of series over the years that have prompted me to watch Ep. 1-16+ in one of two ways:
1. in one sitting–hence the name “Marathon Drama”–an experience I know some of you share with me 🙂
2. in that obsessive counting-down-the-days/minutes/seconds-before-the-next-episode-airs way
I will attempt to share with you only Kdrama series that I’ve watched in one of those two ways. Obviously, some of you may disagree with my choices, but whichever way you view (or viewed) these future drama selections of mine, I hope you will enjoy hearing about some old ones that you may have missed or have already seen with fond memories.
On that note, I wish you a beautiful, blessed day!
