A Kdrama Fan in Korea

One of my favorite things about k-dramas is how it brings people from all over the world together. Case in point is my friend MiataMama, whose husband has been stationed in Korea for the past few years.

But it doesn’t mean I don’t see through the rosy glasses I wore when I first started watching. Just like American TV, Kdramas have their flaws but we love them anyway.
