[K-drama Treasure Hunt] Funny nicknames saved in phones
Welcome to the K-drama treasure hunt, where we all go looking for K-drama treasure in the form of tiny drama details that we know and love. Sometimes these details take the shape of well-worn tropes (oppa Band-Aiding) or storytelling devices (Top Secret Deadly Allergy), but other times it’s just details we know we’ve seen in other dramas, but need help putting all the clues together.
Each week we’ll put you on the hunt for a piece of K-drama treasure, and you can report your findings in the comments.
There’s no umpire in this game, so if you find the detail we’re looking for, drop the drama title (or even better, drama title + episode number) in the comments, and we’ll all take your word for it. Or, we’ll go binge watch just to see it play out.
This week’s treasure:
Funny nicknames saved in phones.
Dig up all those hilarious nicknames that only K-drama characters could come up with. Most times these witty names will be revealed when they light up on someone’s phone — like the time our hero in My Roommate is a Gumiho learned he was saved as “Pox.”
My Roommate is a Gumiho (Episode 14)
