  1. You really, really should watch Six Flying Dragons all the way until the end! I started with the historical shows. They have the action I crave, but the romance stories are something that I really enjoy (much more than traditional chick flicks)–I get teary eyed quite often! My first show was Queen Seon Duk (2009). i was hooked! Some of my favorites all time:

    Arang and the Magistrate
    Blood (2015)
    Empress Ki (2013)
    Fated to Love You (2014)
    Goblin: The Great and Lonely God (2016)
    Grand Prince (2018)
    Gumiho: Tale of the Fox Child (aka Grudge: The Revolt of Gumiho) (2010)
    Hwarang (2016)
    Hong Gil Dong (2008)
    Iljimae (2008)
    Jewel in the Palace (2003)
    Jumong (2007)
    Kingdom (2019)
    Kim Soo Ro (The Iron King) (2010)
    Mirror of the Witch (2016)
    Rebel: Thief of the People (2017)
    Slave Hunters (Chuno) (2010)
    The Age of Blood (2017) Korean *****
    The Crowned Clown (2017) Korean, tv ****
    The Flower in Prison (2016) (Korean, tv) ****1/2
    The Great Doctor/Faith (2012)
    The Joseon Gunman (2014)
    The Kingdom of the Wind(s) (2008)(occurs after Jumong)
    The King’s Woman (2017)
    Tree With Deep Roots (2011)
    Warrior Baek Dong Soo (2011)
    Yi San (2007)

    Jang Hyuk is my favorite actor and Slave Hunters would probably be my favorite (followed by Jumong). However, Jewel in the palace is a big surprise. It’s about a woman who becomes a cook in the king’s kitchen and later the first female doctor (Dae Jang Guem. based on a true story of Joseon Dynasty). I have no one who will listen to me either! I’ve begged my wife and son to watch just one episode or to trade–I’ll watch anything they want me to in exchange for them watching my stuff, but they hate subtitles! Note: this is a partial list, I’m hooked!

    1. Oh yes! I am so excited by this amazing list! Thank you so much!!
      I’ve watched quite a few of these but definitely not all of them (and actually there are quite a few here I don’t even know about at all!! Will definitely be going to check them out now – thank you!).

      I’ve also been wanting to watch Slave Hunter for ages but never got around to it, so I am bumping it up on my list now. Thank you for the suggestion!

      I really love all the historical dramas too, it is amazing how much you end up learning when you connect all the dramas together as well, and start to understand the history a bit better! Korea has such a fascinating history, and once you start watching these it is impossible to stop!

      I think my very first ever historical drama was Sungkyunkwan Scandal, and I slowly started to become hooked on the historical ones after that. They are so good, with so much danger and adventure and plotting and romance. I just adore them!

      And gosh, they make me cry all the time! πŸ™‚
      I hope you are able to one day convince your family to join you in watching them! Good luck!

  2. I discovered your kdrama podcast since I got really obsessed about the show It’s Okay to Not Be Okay on netflix…and I know you don’t have an episode on that yet but I was also still on high from Itaewon Class so Iistened to your episode on it and it was AWESOME! Every point you brought up is exactly what I thought and felt at each particular scene…especially when you got a little swoony over Park Saeroyi…because seriously who wouldn’t? That character was ugh! so perfect! So here I am now hoping that you would get to watching It’s Ok to Not Be Ok…because I am very very much excited if you’ll love this as well. Hope you are doing amazing and I just saw your book covers and they are gorgeous!
    Fighting!

    1. Yay! Thank you so much for this absolutely lovely comment! It made me so happy to read you enjoyed listening to my Itaewon Class episode! I loved that show so much!! And I think it’s very good timing of you finding my podcast, as I happened to put out an episode on It’s OK To Not Be OK just this week! 😹 I absolutely loved it, such a good show😻
      Thank you so much for your comment Danielle!!
      FIGHTING!

  3. Hi, I listened the episode of Mr Sunshine… what a wonderful k-drama! My favorite scene was when in the funeral of Ae-Sin’s grandfather, the jap soldiers show-up, turmoil and confrontation with commoners breaks up, and when it seems there’s no hope for Kim Hui Seong in front of three Japanese soldiers who are about to kill him, the Righteous Army unexpectedly comes out and crashes them with Ae-Sin appearing as a sniper in a roof afar… It’s when Kim Hui Seong recognizes her ex-fiancee is the flame she has become. I still have that scene under my skin.
    On the other hand, last year I watched Sky Castle, and it’s one of the greatest k-dramas ever. I am eager to listen a podcast episode on that show.

    1. Yay, I am very excited you loved Mr Sunshine too! I think it will forever be a favourite for me, it was so moving on so many different levels. I actually still think about it all the time, even so many months after I watched it! I loved that scene you mentioned as well, and I think so many moments in this show really got beneath my skin! Also, strangely enough, I actually had two other listeners suggest I watch Sky Castle as well this week! Obviously it is a very popular drama πŸ™‚ I am going to add it to my frighteningly enormous ‘to watch’ list, haha! Thank you so much for your suggestion πŸ™‚

  4. Hi Lee, I love your podcast (the only Kdrama one I have enjoyed)….I find your humor and accent delightful, along with the reviews…we have the same taste and thoughts on K-dramas, in general. I discovered and started being a Kdrama addict over a year ago and now have 120+ under my belt and keep a list of those I’ve watched and a short review. Having retired early to live in Belgium for 2 years, we returned and I had lots of time on my hands. I have a few minor Korea ties- my Dad served during the Korean War and we grew up hearing him speak to us using some Korean phrases that I now hear in the dramas- also my niece taught English to small children in Gwangju for three years, so we talk K-dramas and Korea a lot…
    I thought about you this week while watching an old classic “I’m Sorry, I Love you” 2004, with So Ji Sub, Im Soo Jung, and Jung Kyung Ho who are all so good and young in it (Jung Kyung Ho has his original nose…making him so much more handsome, in my opinion)…but I thought of you because much of it takes place in Melbourne (and later in Korea, then back)…Have you watched it? I appreciate the old Kdrama classics and this one has to be the most melodramatic of all time- I adored it, although not in the same way as the new ones that are so superior in almost every way (Crash Landing, Itaewon Class, Goblin, Mr Sunshine, etc)
    Anyway, just wanted to reach out- I save up your podcasts for my frequent trips to visit my elderly Dad…Keep up the good work with it and with your writing! …a fan from North Carolina, US

    1. Hello Kim!! Gosh, what a lovely comment, thank you so very much, I loved reading this πŸ™‚ I am always so excited to hear about other people who love dramas as much as me! You have certainly watched a lot of kdrama in only a little over a year, well done! I think that is an excellent achievement πŸ˜‚ I wish I had always kept a record of the shows I watched, but I suppose I do it via the podcast these days πŸ™‚
      I have never seen the show you mentioned (or even heard of it, actually!) so I will definitely google it. I am quite excited it is partially set in Australia! That is fun! Ok, I just looked, the fashion is incredible πŸ˜‚ It looks well worth a watch!!! I don’t mind a bit of melodrama, though I am finding it harder to go back and watch the older dramas recently I’ve noticed, I think because of the lower production quality compared to the beautiful slick modern shows, but I worry I will miss out on fun things with that approach!
      I loved reading about your connections to Korea as well, and thanks so much for taking the time to write to me, it is so encouraging to know you like my show πŸ™‚

  5. Hi Lee, I am so excited that I have found your blog, and just subscribed to your podcast (which I also cannot wait to dive into). I am only fairly new to Korean history (through the discovering of KDramas this March), and it really brought my love of watching storytelling back to the forefront. I just love it so much. I adore reading too, so I love that you are an author who is bringing stories into the world. I have a feeling I am going to spend many an hour reading/listening to your work.

    1. Oh thank you so much for leaving such a lovely comment!! πŸ™‚ I so appreciate it!
      And I am always excited to meet other history buffs. I really love Korean history and it is definitely lots of fun to discover! I am excited you love reading too. Watching drama and reading are my favourite past times! Welcome to the kdrama world, What was the drama that got you interested? (I am always excited to know, haha!)

      1. You are so very welcome. It’s great landing on a blog where so much resonates. I’ve actually checked out a couple of your podcast episodes on kdramas I have watched myself, PLUS I’ve purchased your book Promise Season – which I’m loving! I have just started to allow myself to write fiction (not historical though) just for me – stories I wish were already out there. But… I am rambling lol… Back to your question – My first Kdrama. “Black” in 2017, my hubby was watching a series and I came in halfway through and was immersed. Then I didn’t watch any until this year with “Two Cops”, “Oh My Ghost” and “Vagabond”. I think so far in 2020 I’ve watched about 15. Safe to say I’m loving them haha.

      2. Yay, I love hearing how people get hooked on kdrama! You are new to it but obviously very invested, which I love! Thank you so much about Promise Season, I so hope you enjoy itβ™₯️ actually that is the exact same reason I started writing too, just to create the things I wanted to read but couldn’t find! Such a good reason! It’s great you are writing fiction, I love it!! Actually… I haven’t seen Black yet, but I have heard it was good!!
