6 Things To Do While Watching A Korean Drama

Editor's Note: This is essentially my script for the video version of this information, so if you'd rather watch than read, head over to YouTube: if you prefer to reading to watching, stay here:

Does watching Korean Dramas make you feel like a lazy slug? Does it change from morning to night without you noticing it at times?

I don’t, using the power of MULTITASKING!

This is the story all about how you can not be totally lazy while you watch Korean dramas and you can actually get some stuff done even if you are watching back to back to back to back episodes.

  1. Exercise; using your phone, laptop, or tv, you can get sexier while you watch OR if you at the gym, you can run, jog, or exercise for 30 to an hour, or MORE!
  2. Bake; if you make brownies or cookies, by the end of your episode, they’ll be ready. It’s also an incentive to get away and go back into the real world.
  3. Eat (duh); this is basic but some people might not know, ok? Get snacks and what not or a full course meal and watch away!
  4. Laundry; So since I hate doing laundry (the horror!), it makes it much better to do it while I watch dramas, it’ll be washing and drying while you watch, and then after that’s done you can fold and hang up clothes while your eyes are on the screen.
  5. Sauna/Spa/Massage; this is awesome, you get to relax while you watch dramas, which can be stressful sometimes. If you’re in the sauna, don’t get so absorbed that you don’t realized that you’re dying and need a break.
  6. Getting hair/nails done; sometimes, getting your hair or nails done can be so boring its painful. Keep yourself entertained, and let the manicurist/hairstylist concentrate on what they're doing LOL.

On the other hand, there are things you definitely shouldn’t do. DO NOT:

do homework/study
work - (I know that you’ll do it anyway)
walk on the street or in a crowd
play sports

Drama Responsibly

What's a Jjong?

According to my research this is what a Jjong looks like:

Jjong is the chosen pet name or nickname for Kim Jong Hyun, main vocalist for Kpop group SHINee and ballad group, The Ballad.

He got the nickname Jjong when... well, since ever. Jong Hyun's fan call him Jjong as shortened version of his name and the romanization of the Hangul syllable "μΆ…", which is Jjong with two jj's. 

On twitter, fans are wishing him a happy birthday, using the trending hash-tag, #0408JongHyunDay. Many fans have also taken to changing their twitter handles to something Jjong-love related. 

To say he's famous is an understatement. This guy is quite beloved. This are the results of Jjong on a Google search page:
And Tumblr? For the love of Jjong:

And above all, a Jjong has abs:

For the love of abs, science, and world peace. Love Jjong

5 Things You Didn't Know About Park Shin Hye | Congrats Park Shin Hye!!!!

As You May or May Not Know, Park Shin Hye is Turning 25 (or 26 in Korean years) on February 18! 

This means that Park Shin Hye has been acting for over 12 years now. That's a lot to say for a person in their twenties. She is quite accomplished.

  1. She Was A Child Actor| She played the younger version of Han Jung Suh in Stairway to Heaven when she was 13 years-old
  2. She went to acting school| Her training included acting, singing, and dancing
  3. She has received over 23 awards|
  4. She's still in college| majors in Theater at Chung-Ang University
  5. She's a  goodwill ambassador and a philanthropist|

It's funny and waxing nostalgic to look back at the last decade and remember all the things she has done.

A Snapshot of Her Dramas:

Tree of Heaven:

In this Faux-incest drama, Park Shin Hye plays a Japanese-Korean girl who falls in love with her step-brother. Yikes!

You're Beautiful:

Yep, Fur Dude in the middle there is played by Park Shin Hye. She makes one cute dude. Check her out in this Gender Bender Rock Band Drama!!

Flower Boy Next Door:

Starring next to Yoon Shi Yoon in this super cute drama. Check it out; there's stalking, a cute panda, and Italian mobsters. It's Awesome (notice that I have capitalized 'awesome').


Park Shin Hye plays a poor girl who falls in love with a rich boy. Seems typical, right? Wrong. The high schoolers are in actuality grown men. Who are very attractive.


Park Shin Hye as a High School student and as a reporter. Plus, all this is next to the super smoky Lee Jung Suk.
