Korean Dramas and More on Netflix
Want to know one of the main reasons I love Netflix? I mean, besides my family having fun “Cerezo Family Time” when we sit and watch a movie or documentary, it’s the variety of viewing options Netflix provides. My mom is a huge fan of Netflix. Why?
Well, two words. Korean Dramas.
I’ve written about our love for Korean Dramas before and how we’ve been hooked on them for a while. Netflix has a big selection of titles from you to choose from. Our recent KD was Beating Again.
This is such a good drama. We’re talking about 16 episodes of love, drama, laughter and tears. Not necessary in that order.
Beating Again is about a ruthless investment director, who has a heart transplant and finds a new way to look at life and love. I consider this a romantic comedy, my favorites! Kyung Ho Jung, So-yeon Kim, Hyun-min Yoon are the main characters and together, they were magical. Why this Korean Drama? There is very little to no nudity, only in the beginning and I don’t know of it’s just the translation, but there is some (very sporadically) strong language.
Why Korean Dramas?
I grew up watching telenovelas. I absolutely loved watching with my mom and sister, but lately, they have taken a turn for the worse. I won’t talk too much about it, let just say, they’re not the same as when I was younger. What I love about certain Korean Dramas is the simplicity of the dramas. They’re not overly sexualized. In the majority of the dramas, the most physical contact the actors/actresses have are hugs and occasional awkward kisses. LOL!
Call me a prude, but I kinda like that.
How do I start watching Korean Dramas on Netflix?
You absolutely have to have all the time in the world. Why? Becuase you have to read the captions. Obviously, if you don’t understand the language, you have to have the captions on. So, you sit, grab some snacks, read and watch. Oh, they are so good. I’ve lost count how many I have watched. I can’t wait for Netflix to add more. Here are my suggestions:
Just give it a try. You never know what might happen?! I might convert you!!!
