Hello. This is a Korean in America. The “My love from another star” preview I did is the 3rd highest viewed article on my bog currently. So, I am getting greedy and doing a review of the first 10 episodes. This is a sequel to my previous preview. So please read that first. Here is a link.

Hello. This is a Korean In America. After a long absence, this is the 5th installment of the Seeing double drama with Korean and Japanese TV series.

Hello. This is a Korean in America. This is my impressions of the first two episodes of the new Korean drama, “I Need Romance 3". It is the third entry in the anthology franchise.  This means that this series has nothing to do with its predecessors.

Hello. This is a Korean in America. Today, I am reviewing a new movie from the director of the acclaimed “Battleship”, “Lone Survivor”.

Yes, I am being sarcastic!

I am a Korean and this will review will represent an outsider’s viewpoint regarding a movie based on real events.

Hello. This is a Korean in America. Today, I’m previewing a new Historical drama coming out in Korea. This preview is done after watching the first two episodes.

In 2012, I somehow managed to watch every Korean series that I was remotely interested in, and then write this gigantic year-end post about their many similarities. This year it’s a different story: Thanks to a more demanding job and my discovery of Tumblr, I saw far fewer dramas.

I still couldn’t help noticing some common themes, though. So here’s a doubtlessly incomplete list of things that made the pop-culture rounds in Korea this year.


This is a Korean in America. How are you doing in the cold weather?
One of the comments on my blog asked what is up with Koreans complaining about the historical inaccuracy in Korean dramas. This class of Kdrama 101 is about this topic.

Hello. This is a Korean In America. I went into see this movie through the snow and it was an interesting but uneven experience.

Hello. This is a Korean In America! I was wondering why all my previous commenters were all well rounded, intelligent people. That is not the internet!

I was just too small!
Now I hit the big time! I have trolls. 



And why do the trolls think I am a female? I have videos up... You know that is sexist..

Hello. This is a Korean In America. The winter season of 2013 was an odd TV season populated with weird but not totally incompetent Kdrama shows. This is in stark contrast to the fall season which was just either dull or incompetent.

Sometimes it was both.

“Bel Ami” or “Pretty Man” is one example of a weird but not totally incompetent Korean drama.

New drama time!
After Heirs ended a successful run, You Who Came From The Stars has continued SBS’s winning streak with  20.1% ratings for the fourth episode. I really can’t remember another rom-com starting off with so much success. I’m sure it’s largely due to the cast and the lucky time slot but regardless, well done!
I had a good laugh when I first heard of this drama because I thought the premise was a little silly. Yes, it had a good looking and talented cast but a cynical alien falls in love for the first time  - after 400 years on earth – with an actress. Hmm… okay. But curiosity got the best of me and I gave it a shot. What do I think?
