    Wow I really enjoyed your blog, it is so well organized! I read some of your other blog posts and I really like how you also talk about the OST’s because those are a huge part of Korean Dramas. You know when a drama has a good OST when you find yourself singing to it while you watch the drama or at a random moment of your day. I loved the comment at the end ” Just remember to binge responsibly fellow drama fans, stay hydrated, stay nourished, and most importantly, binge on!” Sometimes the dramas are so good you cannot get away from the screen even to eat. There is also those times where I am watching a drama at night and the food they are eating looks so delicious it makes me hungry haha. There are so many dramas that come out all at once that it is hard to keep track of them at times, but I will definitely save your blog for future reference.

what do you think?
