My Korean Drama Series List

It is indeed a rainy season here in the Philippines and I’m missing the sun. I dislike the rainy season because it also makes me lazy and sad. Nakakastress din because you have to wait for class suspension announcement, it’s either mapuyat ka or gigising ka ng maaga just to check if there is news na. Unfortunately, lagi kami may pasok rain or shine (#onlyinLaguna), it is funny pa kasi kung ano yung hindi maulan, yun ang wala kami pasok.

Last week was a stressful week. Ikaw ba naman ang may pasok hanggang Saturday tapos exam week pa ng anak ko. Sabi ko nga sa IG ko, “Habang ang lahat walang pasok, kami meron, meron, meron. Habang ang iba long weekend, kami may Saturday Class pa” huhuhu! And because of that, last Saturday I started watching Korean Drama again.

It’s been more than a decade when I first watched Korean Drama, Jewel in the Palace is the first Kdrama that I watched. Then I watched Queen Seon Deok, crush ko si Bidam played by Kim Nam Gil so kahit mapuyat ako mapanood ko lang siya. My husband was very supportive so he bought a CD of Queen Seon Deok para di na ko magpuyat but in the end, mas napuyat ako kasi ayaw ko tigilan hanggat di ko matapos. After that, I watched Baker’s King, grabe luha ko dito. Hehehe! I stopped watching Kdrama on TV na. Several years ago, my friend gave me a copy of The Heirs, I like the story and naging crush ko si Lee Min Ho.

1. Jewel in the Palace
2. Queen Seon Deok
3. Baker’s King
4. The Heirs

But it was only last year when I became hooked, I watched so many series last year because you can watch them online na so I don’t have to wait sa TV. In a span of two months, I was able to watch 11 Korean Drama. Kinain na ko ng sistema, lol.

5. W - Two Worlds
6. Descendants of the Sun
7. Legend of the Blue Sea
8. Doctors
9. Love Story in Harvard
10. Love in the Moonlight
11. Goblin
12. Cinderella and the Four Knights
13. Personal Taste
14. Boys Over Flowers
15. K2

Among this list, my favorites are Descendants of the Sun, Legend of the Blue Sea, and K2. I watched LOTBS, Personal Taste, and Boys Over Flowers because I like Lee Min Ho. Then things changed when I watched K2, nadagdagan na crush ko, now I love Ji Chang Wook. I started searching for Ji Chang Wook movie and Korean Drama so I watched Healer, Suspicious Partner, and Empress Ki. Now I’m missing him na, two years din siya sa Military Service.
