I just Simply Love Korea…

Annyeong! So you are curious about who is this sleepless lady.. Well, she is a boring person who like to share stuff that caught her interest. She can be blogging for hours at once with her warm sandwich turned cold cuz she’s ‘too busy’ to eat. She could also be offline for days due to mood swing. So far she’s not willing enough to share other stuff aside from lyrics. Cuz she thinks that’s the least she can do to keep this blog updated since she’s lazy like that. Well there’s more to it. Lemme introduce her in details. Ok stahp with 3rd person already. Hey I’m Aliana! Besides introducing myself, this can also be FAQs to answer a few questions people had asked me in the past ๐Ÿ™‚

Favorites/The Best K-Drama I’ve ever watch

Hmm… I’ve watched countless drama since I was 14. when was it. 2001? Erhmerhgerd I’m a grandma. If I have to name my favorite one, you’ll have to scroll down more and more. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ So I will narrow it down to the Best one. Still hard to choose. Hmm.. if I put aside my fangirl-self and be a critic, I would say Misaeng & Signal are in my TOP best drama so far. Ok so my top best drama has changed. 2016 to early 2017 has a collection of many great dramas. But among all, Goblin has stole my heart… completely. I believe majority is in withdrawal right now. I must say this drama is something else. It pulls me without even trying. Everything about it is perfect. Casts, OST, cinematography, fantasy plots, humor… I’m not saying this as a fan but also as an unofficial critic. Every episodes are precious and I can repeat the same episode countless times and not getting boring. Never happened before. It’s magic. As at Jan 2017, Goblin is officially TOP my Best Drama charts. Followed with Signal and Misaeng ๐Ÿ™‚ Looking forward for more!
(Disclaimer: This is purely based on my critical personal observation. Not correlated with my fangirl-self)

K-Drama that have a significant meaning in my life

ยป Beautiful Days (my 1st K-Drama. I didn’t even know it was from Korea until I watch Winter Sonata lol)
ยป Winter Sonata (the drama that trapped me into K world)
ยป Jewel in the Palace (significantly boost my interest to learn about Korean history)

Favorites/The Best K-Drama OST I’ve ever listen to (whole album)

ยป Winter Sonata (the winter feelsss are real)
ยป The Lawyers (My eternal fav & the best one. The adrenaline of modern classical crossover)
ยป Princess Hours
ยป You Who Came From The Stars
ยป Fated to Love You
ยป Girl Who Sees Smell
ยป Pinocchio
ยป Who Are You: 2015
ยป Reply 1988 (The Remakes and selection of singers are wonderful)

        Ahh.. i get it. Usually, near the end of drama or after the drama ended, the production team will release full soundtrack album. Instrumentals will be in it. I notice not all drama release full soundtrack, let’s hope this drama will have one soon. ๐Ÿ™‚
