[Staff Spotlight] Get to know missvictrix
Explain your username (and/or avatar).
My avatar is an easy one to explain — it’s Lee Hana in one of the zany teasers for High School King of Savvy. Something about that bright yellow eyeshadow, crazy hair, and red teardrops on the end of each eyelash screamed a kind of wacky Audrey Hepburn, and it spoke to me.
My username is a little more complicated/nerdy. Back in the good old days when English had more nouns with a femine and masculine version, masculine words that ended with -tor (like aviator and curator) ended with -trix in their feminine form (so, aviatrix and curatrix). I love how it looks, I love how it sounds, and that is how Miss Victrix was born. You could say it’s part language nerd moment, and part self pep talk.
What is the first drama that you watched (or the first drama that made an impression)?
I’ve shared my dramaland story when I talked about discovering Boys Before Flowers, my first drama. Did it make an “impression”? You bet. But it wasn’t until I had a few dramas under my belt that I began to understand the life-changing magic of dramaland. So, rather than call out a particular gateway drama, I think it was more of the process of discovering the world of dramas (and then pitching my tent there) that had the lasting impact on me.
Tell us about a job or two that you’ve had in the past.
Librarian (doing my best to channel Rachel Weisz in The Mummy) and barista (I like coffee).
What’s your favorite drama you recapped?
I’m not a recapper per se, but I’m pretty proud of the baby version known as weecaps. I’ve covered some of the baddest dramas out there (and I do mean bad), but regardless of drama quality, I love the weekly conversational feeling of weecaps. I like to think of it as a book club meeting, where you meet for an hour and chat about a story. You can’t go line by line, obviously, but you can share thoughts, feelings, favorite moments, and of course, squees.
What drama genres do you especially like?
Anything and everything that’s not listed below.
What drama genres do you especially dislike?
Horror. Stories about Alzheimers. Procedurals with all procedure and no character development. Anything episodic and/or without a continuous plot line — spare me.
What drama character would you want to be?
What a delicious and yet unanswerable question.
What was your major in school?
English Literature, swiftly followed by grad school and a Library and Information Science degree. Then I dabbled in an MBA, MFA, and Graphics Design degree, none of which came to fruition. But I love school and I would be a professional lecture attender, essay writer, and thesis defender any day of the week. Alas, girl’s gotta earn a living.
What’s a random skill you have?
I can punch a heavy bag pretty well.
Favorite non-Korean movie and/or TV show?
It’s been so long since I watched anything in English I don’t feel like I can answer this one. However, long before the dramaland vacuum, I loved long BBC miniseries and adaptations of classic novels.
Which Hallyu celebrity would you actually want to meet and spend an hour with?
My brain automatically reads this as “who is your latest drama crush that you’d like to stare at in real life” (sorry) — and that would definitely be Joo Ji-hoon right now. But I don’t think I would really want to spend an hour with him, or any Hallyu celebrity. More than the celebrities, I like the world of dramas and their stories. So maybe it would be easier to answer which drama character I would like to spend an hour with? Imma need more paper.
