[Staff Spotlight] Get to know SailorJumun
Explain your username (and/or avatar).
Sadly, there’s no interesting story behind my name. I just combined two of my favorite things—Sailor Moon and the song “Mirotic (Jumun)” by DBSK—and thought it sounded cool, ha.
What is the first drama that you watched (or the first drama that made an impression)?
I distinctly remember walking in on my mom watching the 2005 makjang War of Roses and being so intrigued that I couldn’t walk away. I was definitely way too young to be watching something like that, but hey, it opened up those sacred gates to dramaland, so no harm, no foul.
What’s your favorite drama that you’ve recapped?
Hands down The Liar and His Lover. I loved it so much that I would find myself rambling (er, fangirling *cough*) in my recaps and having to edit the hell out of them. It was just wonderful having a sweet youth drama that was so confident with its story and its characters—characters that I so wish were real.
What drama genres do you especially like?
I’m a pure rom-com gal, but I especially love rom-coms with a slight fantasy or quirky twist thrown in a la I Hear Your Voice or Surplus Princess.
What drama genres do you especially dislike?
Medical dramas are usually a no for me. I’ll endure one if I love the cast, but if I can avoid it, I definitely will. While I can deal with heroes fighting against corruption in most other dramas, seeing that in a hospital setting just turns my stomach.
Is there a drama character you’ve ever strongly identified with, and why?
Eun-jae from Age of Youth had my heart the second I saw her. Like her, I’m terribly awkward and soft-spoken, but also just very weird. Actress Park Hye-soo gave me some awful (and hilarious) flashbacks to my freshman year of college with her on-the-nose performance.
What drama character would you want to be?
I’d love to be In-ha from Pinocchio. It’d be scary being a living, breathing lie detector, but I always found it admirable how she treated her Pinocchio syndrome as an asset in her life rather than a hindrance. And when it was a hindrance, she still took it like a pro. Teach me your ways, Unni.
What was your major in school?
I majored in English with a minor in Korean Studies. (Just graduated in May, woot woot!)
Favorite non-Korean movie and/or TV show?
Movie, Titanic (yes, I’m a total sap). TV show, ’90s sitcom Boy Meets World. Neither ever get old for me.
Which Hallyu celebrity would you actually want to meet and spend an hour with?
I’d like to say Jaejoong, but if I were anywhere near that man, I would probably jump his bones and I don’t exactly think he would appreciate that. So I’ll go with Lee Jong-seok instead. I’d take him out to get pampered since he’s had such a busy, busy year.
Your favorite drama has an unholy alliance with your most hated drama and produces a mutant baby drama. Describe the plot.
In a world where a meat-loving gumiho cross-dresses to enter an all-boy school and romance a spoiled rich boy who also happens to be a high-jumping champion. But how will this gumiho blend in with the guys when she doesn’t even know how to blend in with humans, period? Find out—at your own risk.
