    Black Dog: what a gem of a show. If you like intimate and well constructed dramas, you shouldn’t miss it. It’s a perfect reflection of what real life is about, and all the actors are fantastic.
    People with flaws: I loved this show. I can’t tell you that the least I liked was the OTP. The side characters will win your heart. During the first episodes the toilet humour is quite… well, ¿stupid? But it will pass. I watched the first eps when I was having a terrible migraine and I laughed out loud. Don’t expect nothing but to have a good time watching.
    My Holo Love: I marathoned it during the weekend, and I had a lot of fun. And it’s only 12 eps.

      I keep hearing the same things about Black Dog and People With Flaws, so I’m interested. For People With Flaws, I have that one on my list simply because Kim Seul Gi is in it XD
      I’m watching Beautiful Love, Wonderful Life and that drama was really bad with the toilet humor in the beginning. Ugh… I wanted to just fast forward because usually the toilet humor goes away after a few episodes and luckily, it did in this case.

    I’ve watched People with flaws and I recommend it to you if you want to see a light and funny drama full of wonderful side characters. I personally found the ML a bit annoying, but I enjoyed the drama. First episodes I watched when I had a terrible migraine and it helped with the pain, I had a very good time.

    As for Black Dog, it’s completely the opposite. The story follows a very slow path and it’s very much about the inside work of teachers in a high school. It can be a little dense, but I just adore Seo HyunJin and she’s fantastic in this drama.

I decided to start a Korean learning series on YouTube. The idea was that it would sort of chronicle my learning experience, organize it, and help me to reinforce what I’ve learned so far while also giving me opportunity to practice speaking Korean.
I feel so alone being the only one in my life even remotely interested in Korea.
There’s more videos to come in the future (some have already been made). Check the video’s description for relevant information and links for further learning.
I’m using my decks on TinyCards to go along with the series as well: tiny.cards/users/figbeater

    Awesome! Your pronunciation seems really good!

    Thanks @Eden, this is amazing! And your lowkey acting, so cute, hee! I’m so happy to realize that I recognize quite a lot of common sentences, I’m going to watch this on a loop and do the thing with google translator, never ocurred to me, also, thanks for the cards! My reading is slowly improving, so I’ll surely use them for practicing

      Awesome! I’m glad you found it useful. Some of these phrases I wish I knew when I first started learning because I couldn’t get them to come up on google translate. For instance, 좋다 (joh-da). That one took me forever to realize what they were saying in those instances when the weather was nice or they felt good.

        I’ve been using lingodeer! It’s all game based and it’s actually quite addictive, when I’m bored I just cram in a 5 minutes practice or a grammar revision. I like it that it works on a building blocks logic: it feeds you gradually words and grammar structures and combines them in different ways, so that you don’t forget past lessons and manipulate the language instead of repeating the same sentences over and over again… But LD has two obvious limitations for me: oral practice and reading practice, so your materials and GT suggestion are really useful to me, thanks!

          I’ve heard of LingoDeer before but I could’ve sworn it wasn’t free. Now it looks like it is? Or is only some content free? It seems like a good way to hear pronunciation and test your learning progress. Duolingo is very similar.

            LD has a subscription fee, I chose 40 USD/year. Yes, you get to hear a lot of the language -syllables, words, sentences, short videos- and, as I said, it’s all about short games. You get to test your knowledge after every 4 or 5 lessons, but you can choose practice tests and vocabulary/grammar revisions too whenever you want… I don’t think you can get to be fluent by using this method (or any other that doesn’t envolve having frequent contact with another fluent speaker – as in language classes or going to Korea, *wink*), but it’s a very cost- and time-effective way to get the basics

    That’s my second favorite song from that OST. Infact I love almost all the songs and soundtracks from the drama.

When The Camellia Blooms had such a great array of characters. And to think I almost passed this one up.
Now I\’m watching Catch Yoo Ryung while waiting for Love\’s Crash Landing to air.
Nothing else has been catching my eye lately.

I’m sad that A Day Found By Chance has ended. I haven’t felt so connected to a drama since 30 but 17. It was a drama I felt like I would have written if I was a webcomic artist or drama writer.
It easily made my top 10, finally pushing School 2013 out.

I\’m still here. I\’ve just been binging When The Camellia Blooms 🙂
Btw, is Melting Me Softly worth finishing? I was thinking about dropping it because I really don\’t care about the characters.
I think the crazy ex boyfriend was the only thing keeping me interested but he\’s become less crazy.
