I remember when I was young, I used to be active in the church. I was part of our Youth Ministry before and summer is a very busy month for us because of Vacation Bible School and Youth Camp. There is also an Educational Trip to South Korea too that I wanted to join but I know that we don’t have a budget for that. Life changed when I started working, got married and moved to the province.
For the past decade, I was able to watch Jewel in the Palace, Queen Seon Deok, Baker’s King and The Heirs. I only watched four Korean series so I don’t consider myself a Korean fanatic but I like Lee Min Ho.
Things changed when my friend gave me a copy of 5 Korean series last February and one of my friends suggested a website where I can also watch other popular series. So now, I can say that Korean series is taking over my life. Starting February, I already watched 11 Korean series.
1. W - Two Worlds
2. Descendants of the Sun
3. Legend of the Blue Sea
5. Love Story in Harvard
6. Love in the Moonlight
8. Cinderella and the Four Knights
9. Personal Taste
10. Boys Over Flowers
I’m currently watching the Weightlifting Fairy. Care to share your favorite Korean series so I can add to my list. And because of this, mas lalo ko ng gusto pumunta sa South Korea so I can see those places that I’ve seen in the series. I need to save for that trip pa.
Anyway, since we haven’t been to South Korea. I was happy to taste and try stuff from SoKor. My husband has Korean officemates who generously give pasalubong. One of his officemates gave this Line Friends Prestige Chocolate for my son, I’m not familiar with the brand but it looks sosyal. Hehehe! One box contains different flavors of chocolate which is just okay for us.
We also received Nature Republic Facial Mask and Missha Frui-Tea Cleansing Foam. Nature Republic and Missha are both South Korean cosmetic brand. I even teased my husband na baka maging kutis Koreana na rin ako after using this.
I think the facial mask is very common in their country because I also see men using this. If you watch Descendants of the Sun and K2, you see soldiers and bodyguards using a facial mask.
