What is the first drama that you watched (or the first drama that made an impression)?
Stairway to Heaven.
Have you ever lived a moment that you thought belonged in a drama?
Seeing my crush walk through the doors by coincidence at a Panera’s we both usually never go to. I swear there was a halo of light shining behind him, and I thought I heard strains of “Almost paradise…” playing in the background.
What’s your favorite drama that you’ve recapped?
Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim (granted, I’ve recapped exactly two and a half dramas so far…).
What drama genres do you especially like?
I used to love bubbly straightforward rom-coms and coming-of-age stories, but now that I’m older, I tend to check out dramas with more nuanced, complex-sounding plots.
What drama genres do you especially dislike?
Political. Which is kind of weird, given how I love ranting about American politics in real life. Perhaps it’s all the Korean lingo I’m unfamiliar with, or the fact that there’s usually no movement at all in political dramas, just a lot of intense staring and sitting in chairs.
What drama character would you want to be?
(Weightlifting Fairy) Kim Bok-ju. Because Joon-young is love.
What’s a random skill you have?
My skill-in-training: driving stick shift. It’s difficult, but mightily satisfying. Especially when you can hear the engine humming after you shift the gears into place—it’s a feeling I can’t describe with words.
Favorite non-Korean movie and/or TV show?
The good thing about American TV shows is that they last for more than two months. The bad thing about American TV shows is that they last for more than two months. Sometimes, there are TOO many seasons, and all the story arcs have been beat to death. But before that point occurs, I usually enjoy them a whole bunch. Among my all-time favorites are: House and Parks and Rec.
Which Hallyu celebrity would you actually want to meet and spend an hour with?
Sung Hoon? TOP? Song Jae-rim? Lee Jun-ki? Yoon Kyun-sang? Gah I can’t choose just one!
Which of the 7 deadly sins would be your undoing? (Pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, or sloth.)
Gluttony. Eating a triple fudge brownie as I type. I consume vast (and probably unhealthy) amounts of food porn. Meokbang was made for people like myself.
Your favorite drama has an unholy alliance with your most hated drama and produces a mutant baby drama. Describe the plot.
This is so hard because the reason I hate my most hated dramas (Playful Kiss and Heirs) is because they had so much potential in their premise and quickly killed all of it in their execution. One of my favorite dramas (Hwang Jin-yi) is set in a completely different era, with a polar opposite plot, where female empowerment is key. So if they had a mutant baby, I think it would kind of end up like New Tales of Gisaeng except set in high school with the male protagonist wearing many ugly sweaters and the heroine choosing her career in dance over him in the end.
