  1. I’m fully rooting for Season 4! It is about to walk through its fourth year now. The show is still interesting because they travel around Korea and I can see many interesting places and foods.

  8. Hiya guys and gals, I've always wondered how people first became interested in Korea and learning Korean. After living here in Seoul for seven years, I met a lot of foreigners and always wondered why they moved to Korea. And after asking a lot of people, I found that the vast majority of people became interested in Korea for one reason. So I created a video called "How did you first become interested in Korea and learning Korean?" (video link) ----- I'm interested in other people's journey in getting into Korea, so I have two questions: 1. How did you first become interested in Korea and learning Korean? (Like what was your gateway to Korea.) 2. When did you first become interested in Korea? I'd love to hear peoples' take in either the video itself or comments below.
  9. Best Comedy Kdramas Chingus, the last time we did poll on the "The Best Legal Kdramas", and now we are back a poll on the "The Best Comedy Kdramas". The best thing about the Korean Comedies (or maybe comedies in general) is the fact that they are usually very well written and light in tone. Most of the Comedy dramas I have seen, be it dark humor, rom-com etc, I have hardly felt that there was any forced humor in them. While I am not too much into Rom-coms lately, I usually go for them in case I feel the plot is interesting or my favorite actor or actress are in it. But I am always in search of a good comedy where the romance is not the driving seat. Slapstick comedies, dark humor, all work for me very well there. The best comedy dramas for me have been the ones which would turn extremely serious situations into a funny one, and there have been several kdramas which were really good in it. So here we are with the list of "Comedy Kdramas" divided into 3 categories: Comedy / Dark Humor - The dramas which were either more comedy centric or had dark humor. All the other elements like romance etc could be there, but not in the driving seat. Rom-Coms - The Romantic Comedies which were more romance centric along with being a comedy too as the name suggests. Comedy Fantasy - The comedy dramas with Fantasy type element. You didn't find your favorite drama? Don't worry... Suggest them and they can be included. Please do so before voting (as you will not be able to vote twice). Please vote for your favorite dramas, and don't forget to tell us why you liked them as well Happy Voting!

  10. Guess the drama - Sageuk version Your trusted blind writers, @partyon ("I Love Gossip") and @Sleepy Owl ("Scandal is my Middle Name") are back with the juiciest gossips from the past! Yes, our gossips are from the world of Sageuks this time! What is a blind item? A blind item is a news story, in which the details of the matter are reported while the identities of the people involved are not revealed. How do you participate in this game? Your job is to guess what drama we're talking about! Just reply to this thread - please put your answers into a spoiler tag (#1 drama x, #2 drama y, etc.) Easy! Blind item #1 Ooh, you'll be chilled by the latest turn of events! Sovereign F (who is known for being quite the man-child), just went on a killing spree in the court. We hear he was drunk as a skunk, and no one dared to stop him. The body count is high. His wife had a full time job trying to get him to stop, when he wouldn't listen to reason from anybody else. He has been acting cray cray for a while now, and we're wondering if he's losing the plot. Here's a little hint for you: if you value your life, don't visit his court. And whatever you do, don't disrespect his wife. Or persimmons. Blind item #2 Lovers of the Gossip, we have heard that a certain Flowery Knight A has been having a thing with the Queen B. The Queen has been giving him orders personally, and he has been meeting her in private sometime. Our sources in the palace have also reported that Flowery Knight A carried the Queen in his arm in the palace. Flowery Knight A’s sister was also seen with Flowery Knight C, who happens to be part of their rival family. Is it too much for us to suspect something is going on between them? Surely, we will get to know more as things move forward. Blind Item #3 All the single Ladies, a very handsome face has entered the palace! He is instructor A, and is supposed to be teaching the Prince B personally. Be careful when you go to see him, since Prince B does not like to have anyone around himself in less than the 10 meter area. But our instructor A is a daring person, he is seen constantly move around the Prince B despite getting warnings about it. Prince B’s arrogance is also thanks to his grandfather, who is feared even by the King himself. To be fair, Prince B himself is not only known among the ladies for his arrogance, but also beautiful face, which does have some feminine touch. Even Prince B’s cousins think that his physique and face is too feminine for him to be a MAN. Let’s pray for our handsome Instructor A, so that he doesn’t get fired for being insolent towards the Prince B. Blind Item #4 You will be chilled by the recent kidnapping of the plastic surgeon has left the whole country shocked. The kidnapper is suspected to be some sort of Sageuk filming extra due to his armor making him look like an old kingdom soldier, but with an extremely handsome face. He in a very shocking way, was able to kidnap the Dr. X, and even swipe out the whole SWAT team in front of the hospital just by the swing of his sword. Our source in the hospital has informed us that the kidnapper was talking about curing some Queen, and calling the Dr. X to be some heavenly doctor. She was forced to carry all her surgical tools, and taken by the kidnapper. Among the charges applied to this kidnapper, stealing a SWAT member’s shield is also included. Let’s have faith in the police and hope Dr. X comes back safely. Whichever network's sageuk crew this crazy extra belongs to, the PD should definitely fire him - handsome face or not. Blind Item #5 What an era this is to live in, and what is world changing into! A woman has been chosen as a Royal Physician. Physician A has had a very interesting, and her life in the palace is no different than any drama. Royal Physician A, who has a history of being punished for being part of a treason but seems to have earned the favor of the Royals in some way. The King is not ready to listen to the ministers’ protests, and Court Lady C is surely not impressed by everything that’s happening in the palace. Blind Item #6 Lovers of gossip, be careful when you move around in the streets of the capital for we have been told that the King’s masked son, Prince H has been called back in the palace. He is a reckless rider of the horse, and does not really care about the damages his recklessness causes. If there is something the King has in large numbers, it would be sons. The King has a lot of heirs already, and he's not known to be the "fatherly" type. Why bother with the abandoned son is what is on everybody's lips in town currently... Our sources in palace have also informed us that the cursed Prince H spends most of his time around a lowly court maid “B” in the palace gazing at a celestial body. How long he will manage to stay in the palace is something we are also not sure about. Like the FL in Gone with the Wind, he may just up and leave with a Fiddle-dee-dee! Blind Item #7 It is very hard to believe that there was a tiger attack right inside in the palace! Court Lady S who is a famous storyteller among the court ladies in palace heroically saved the day in the palace. During a festival where almost all the court ladies were celebrating at night, a tiger was said to be seen roaming around in the palace. Court Lady S’s excellent storytelling skill came handy, as she decided to help the Crown Prince in hunting down the tiger by gather the ladies of the palace elsewhere in order to read them a story. We had already confirmed before that Crown Prince was surely not impressed by Court Lady S due to several reasons, and the biggest one being her insolent behavior towards Crown Prince while he was not in his uniform. First she didn’t recognize him, and then she was rude to him. We won’t defend the Crown Prince, but we do understand why he had been giving Court Lady S a hard time for the past few days. But we do hope that Court Lady S’s heroic action does help her to get out of Crown Prince’s bad list. Blind Item #8 We all can have sleep without worry now, since our town is not really a ghost town! The latest Magistrate “A” in the town in not dead and managed to live out his first night as the magistrate safely! We seriously think that the previous magistrates who died were just very old to stay alive anyway. The most important information we have on Magistrate A is that he is tall, young, and very handsome. But, he seems off at times maybe, our sources have seen him speak to himself more than once. He certainly is not being approached by a ghost, is he? We surely hope not! Blind Item #9 Seekers of the gossip, you won’t believe what a little bird has told us! The Crown Prince seems to be having a thing with his new eunuch! Eunuch R seems to have won the Crown Prince’s heart and well, if rumors are to be believed, Crown Prince is into men. Maybe Eunuch R’s feminine features are one of the reasons why Crown Prince fell for him. The Eunuchs in the palace are confused with this whole situation, and in case this rumor ends up being true, Crown Prince could lose his title and Eunuch R his life! We are a bit shocked and also confused by this whole situation, since we had recently shared the news of Crown Prince’s heart to have fluttered for one of the performers who were part of the dance group for the recent ceremony in the palace. Her face was covered, but she did also have similar physical feature as the Eunuch R. Wonder if that this is the reason Crown Prince is with him. Certainly Eunuch R, and the female dancer are not the same person, are they? It would be a very juicy yet crazy news if they are the same! Blind Item #10 Tongues have been wagging lately that Royal A seems to spend an awful lot of time in the kitchen despite having a multitude of servants and cooks. Even though it could seem that Royal A and head chef could be having an affair, we hear that Royal A doesn't seem close at all with head chef. In fact, they seem to bicker most of the time. It's not surprising as eccentric Royal A has been in the headlines lately for the strangest antics: an obsecene rain dance, a weird obsession with water, flirting with the court maids. How does Royal A's spouse put up with all of this, we wonder? Blind Item #11 In a very shocking of turn of events, the Princess “B” has decided to marry a commoner. The Royal family is surely not very happy about it. She is going to marry Mr. “O”, who is from a very small tribe. His father used to be a great general, but the only thing guy is known to be is being a fool. Mr. O and Princess B who seemed to be jinxed at first are now the town's most famous and loveliest couple. There are talks going on in having the Princess leave the palace as a result of this, and things seem to be pretty heated between the daughter and the father here. The only happy person here is the Queen, who no longer needs to worry about her son having to compete with Princess “B” for the throne. What really shocks us is how suddenly Mr. O looks like a different person, with a different face. Are we the only ones who noticed this change in him? No one from the Royal Family noticed it, even the Princess didn't. Maybe we are being delusional. But here is a detail to drool upon for our lovers of gossips and abs. You got to look at those abs when the sky light shines over them while he is bathing in the nearby body of water. Blind Item #12 We are also confused about what we are reporting, but some foreign soldiers from the western country were seen to be saluting a person looking exactly like a Joseon person, Mr. S, but wearing the same uniform as them. We are not so sure, but we wonder where this Mr. S has been living to not know who Ms. A is. Also he had the audacity to call her out as a witness while investigating a murder of a westerner. We don’t really know much about that murder, but we are sure Mr. S is going to be a victim of one soon after calling in Ms. A in order to investigate. The Japanese Gang leader D is known to be an admirer of Ms. A, and will surely not leave Mr. S alone for this. Ms. A might kill him herself, since if our not so reliable sources are to be believed, she is suspected to be a gunslinger herself. If Mr. S continues his recklessness, he may surely not live to see another day’s sunlight. Blind Item #13 Guys you will never believe what our sources in the palace have reported to us! Mr. B who was going to marry Queen S is said to have gone rogue, and started a rebellion against the Queen!! His main reason behind the rebellion is reported to be “A Woman should not rule the nation”. We wonder what made him come to this conclusion against the woman he was supposed to marry! We’ll have to keep our sources in the palace confidential for the sake of their safety, but there has been a rumor going on in the palace that Mr. B is Lady M’s secret son, who had the nation in her hands before Queen S took the throne and had her killed when she tried to start coup. His grudge against Queen S could be because she killed his mother. We feel sorry for Queen S who has been ruling the country so well. Her life was never easy as she was abandoned by the previous King who tried to hide the fact that his wife gave birth to twin girls. Queen S had a hard time coming back to palace and reclaim her position after her sister was killed. These are hard days for Queen S. We hope that this rebellion comes to an end as soon as possible in a peaceful manner. Blind Item #14 Seekers of the gossips, and the lovers of the abs, this is for you. Rumor is that three extremely handsome men are seen travelling the desert, and due to the heat they are moving shirtless exposing their ABS! Don’t get too near them or try to strike up a conversation with them as they look to be extremely dangerous people carrying swords and bows, and other weapons, but with handsome body. One of our sources was approached by them, and they showed him the picture of a runaway military slave. There are rumors for some big prize money on whoever catches this runaway slave, and these guys seem to be in this line of work. Let's see who can guess the most dramas correctly - the winner will be Soompi's queen / king of blind gossip! Please note: All the blinds are for famous Sageuks. Please give your answers in spoilers. You can form teams in order to solve blinds. You can ask for extra hints. Have fun guessing!
