Idol-actor BoA left a thank you message to fans for watching her drama via her Instagram yesterday.
She wrote, “Here is the script I first received ~~ Hehe. I didn’t think then I would be able to date. Thank you for watching ‘Expect Dating.’” Along with this message, BoA left a picture of the scripts she used for her first Korean drama “Expect Dating.”
“Expect Dating” is KBS’ short form drama that aired September 11 and 12, and starred BoA in her first K-drama, ZE:A‘s Im Siwan, Choi Daniel, and Kim Ji Won. In the drama, BoA played Joo Yeon Ae, a twenty-something who has a dating-phobia.

In a previous story, we listed a few signs that might indicate akdrama addiction. Those signs included watching any drama more thanonce, marathoning an entire series and having seen a total of more than10 dramas.
The list also included developing an interest in Korean culture,rearranging your life so you can watch more drama and learning to lovethe predictable clichés that are found in all your favorite dramas. Onceyou are addicted it no longer seems odd that people chase andoccasionally catch buses, follow other people around without beingnoticed, or stop people by grabbing their wrists.
But as kdramas become a bigger part of your life, you may notice evenmore changes in your behavior

Before they began watching kdramas, non-Korean viewers may never haveseen an adult give another adult a piggyback ride. But in so manykdramas and almost every romantic comedy there's at least one.
Which leads to two questions. First, why are there so many kdramapiggyback rides? And second, which are the best piggyback scenes?
Piggyback rides seem to happen for several reasons. Either acharacter drankso much soju that they can't walk or they've sprainedtheir ankle. Or they have broken the heel off their shoe, sometimes onpurpose. Intentional heel breaking to ask for a piggyback ride happenedin "Flower Boys Next Door."
The explanation for the piggyback scene may have to do with Koreanculture

The other day my girlfriend fell asleep on my couch after a night of watching an unhealthy amount of Korean variety shows, music videos, and dramas. While she slumbered, I stayed awake mindlessly watching an endless amount of Inkigayo performances. Just as I shut my computer off, my girlfriend started speaking in Korean and singing K-pop songs and that's when it hit me-I need to write a post on K-pop idols and their sleeping habits. So a big thanks to my friend who didn't know her creepy Korean sleep performances inspired this post.
K-pop idols don't sleep. Their schedules allow maybe a few hours of sleep, but unlike you and me who get at least 6 hours of deep sleep, these idols need to be on their music game 24/7 which means sleep is a luxury. If I was working as hard as these idols, I would probably be sleep-walking, sleep-talking, sleep-singing, sleep-dancing, during the hours where I should be still and fast asleep
2PM member Taecyeon tried to explain his “Fashion Terrorist” outfit.
In a recent appearance on KBS’ variety talk show, “Happy Together 3,” the singer tried to vindicate himself by explaining the story behind his famous “suit picture.”
Taecyeon goes on to share how when he was in the United States, he and his family used to enjoy watching a Korean drama from SBS called, “야인시대,” or translated to “Age of Opposition.” At the time, this drama had the highest viewer rating.
In this period piece drama, the characters all wore suits and that appealed to young Taecyeon. Hence, he wanted to look just like the cool characters so he borrowed his father’s suit and took a picture

Devoted fans of the drama "You're Beautiful" say that the show couldnot possibly be the same without its star Park Shin Hye. That may be whythe actress made a cameo appearance in the first episode of"FabulousBoys," the Taiwanese version of the show that first aired May 12.
The original Korean series opens with Park Shin Hye's character,novice nun Go Mi Nyu, rushing into a church service. Go Mi Nyu notices alittle girl watching the band Anjell on her phone. She tries to stopher but the attempt backfires and Anjell's music winds up blaringthrough the church.
In the opening sequence of the Taiwanese version, Park Shin Hye isagain sitting in church but this time she is the one watching the bandon her phone
The actress appeared in the first episode of Fabulous Boys, the remake, which aired in Taiwan on May 12.
In the opening scene, Park Shin Hye is shown watching a performance by A.N.Jell in church. Gao Mei Nu (Cheng Yu Xi) tries to stop her from watching the performance and start praying, but instead ends up sending Park Shin Hye′s cellphone flying across the church aisle.
Just before the church was plunged into chaos at the flying cellphone, Park Shin Hye said, "This isn′t how You′re Beautiful is supposed to start!" she then added "Go, go, Gao Mei Nan!" showing support for the drama.
The SBS drama You′re Beautiful aired in 2009, and starred Park Shin Hye, Jang Keun Suk, CN Blue′s Jung Yong Hwa and FT Island′s Lee Hong Gi

Having an excuse to cry can be a good thing. When I first started watching kdramas, I wondered, what's with all the crying? I don't remember seeing American actors cry that often or their tears occupying so much of my screen time. And how come Korean actors are so good at it? Do they have a special class on crying in Korean acting schools?
It was a curious experience to see people crying on screen for so long because it really connects you emotionally to the character. And before I knew it I was hooked on regular crying/watching marathons.
"That Winter The Wind Blows" is a wonderful example of a tissue-worthy drama but as tragic as the story was, it does not earn my "super sobber" award.
Probably the two best criers I have seen in a kdrama were Yoon Eun Hye as Soo Hyeon and Park Yoo Chun as Jung Woo in "I Miss You
It seems interesting that every Music Show producer seems to have a need for a ranking system. While this allows for a fast (if possibly flawed) gauge of who’s selling there, and makes for interesting watching, the ranking systems do take away from the original purpose of a music show, which is to give music fans a weekly dose of Korean Music, ranging from trot (Hong Jin-young), to K-indie (The Nuts) and some good old idol-group pop in between (Infinite).
The Nuts deserve a mention here, as I could not find their performance on Music Bank for this week online, but are still worth checking out. I must admit to not knowing much about this K-indie band, apart from the fact that Ji Hyun-Woo (of Invincible Youth 2 and Queen In-hyun’s Man fame) used to be their lead guitarist
"What was the title again?" This has become a staple question in manyhouseholds in the United States on weekends or even a regular day. It is notunknown to many that K-drama and K-pop are nearly inseparable. For most fans ofKorean entertainment, one or the other of K-drama or K-pop leads them into thisfun and sometimes addicting world.
In 2011, K-drama started becoming more accessible in the United States, andK-drama watching also became more secure, as backdoor copyright infringingchannels became less rampant. Back then, Hulu was just testing out the watersand made a few titles available on the service. Those titles always ended up tobe the cult K-drama hits of that time. The much buzzed "Boys Over Flowers"became the first K-drama ever to be available on Hulu
