Another Oh Hae Young List of OST and BGM

Another Oh Hae Young 1

Not long ago, I decided to give a break with TVN dramas because of one hell of rollercoaster and  a bit painful journey with their dramas, such as Reply 1988 and Cheese In The Trap. Actually, they are very good dramas, very very good indeed. It just somehow, along the way, there were so many things involved that make me think, “Aaah too bad, it could have been a great dramas ever.”

Anyway, I guess that just me being disappointed and hard to move on. Since I heard that Eric Mun comeback to kdramaland with Seo Hyun Jin, I really anticipate for it. I’ve known him since he is in Shinhwa and fell in love more when he play Super Rookie alongside Han Ga In. So, I can’t not really wait. But then, it will be in TVN. Darn! But, for the love of Eric, I decided to open my heart again for TVN * well, I always love TVN for their dramas and Music and Drama OST *

At first, Another Oh Hae Young or Another Miss Oh or Oh Hae Young Again is not quite known, especially when everyone in the galaxy still rooting for DOTS (descendant of The Sun). But me, I knew from the start that I will love this drama and it will be another good journey. I watch it because of the cast which I love for their acting in dramas. Let’s see, Kim Mi Kyung, my favorite actress which involved in many great dramas (The Heirs, Yong Pal, Can You Hear My Heart). Kim Ji Suk which I known from his role in Cheongdamdong Alice and Ye Ji Won from the latest Page Turner drama. As for the story, definitely refreshing, the whole family is entertaining. Not to mention, the idea that Eric is a sound producer, make it very interesting. The drama emphasize about sound a lot which a new knowledge and experience for drama viewers like me.

So, this drama currently airing and just reached episode 7 from the whole 18 episode. Pray that it will be a funny, romantic, and warm journey to the end. Just like the OST and BGM they had offered so far. A catchy, upbeat, warm, mellow song and music which now filling my playlist altogether with CITT OST, Goodbye Mr. Black OST, Beautiful Gong Shim OST, Coldplay, Adele and Shawn Mendez.

Descendants of the Sun OST List


Another kdramas in my waiting list for 2016 is finally airing, Descendants of the Sun. Really curious of how it will be since the writer is the great Kim Eun Sook. Not to mention the lead cast is our Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo.

Both of them are my favorites. Love Song Hye Kyo since Autumn Tales era till now. While Song Joong Ki, well, first time I saw him was in Triple. And this is his new drama after serving his nation in Military. So, who is not gonna be excited to watch him again after 2 years, right.

One more thing, this drama shooting is already ended aka pre-produced, which is I believe, just like Cheese in The Trap, the cinematography and the editing or the scene showing will be just perfect since they have time to make it the best they can. Furthermore, from what I saw, we will be spoiled by many topless soldier scene, Oh dear…

After watching their first 2 episodes, I know I have been fallen in love. And fortunately, it aired during the time when I felt down because of the lack of JungSeol moment in Cheese In The Trap. Somehow, it lifted my kdramas spirit up.

But hey, it just been 2 episode, don’t know about the rest. But I like what I’ve seen so far. The drama kinda reminds me of “Tour of Duty” (a drama aired back in the eighties. beside about war, friendship, military, it also about love between a Liutenant and a doctor. What a memories).

First Recommended Kdrama in 2016: Cheese in The Trap

Definitely in love with this drama called Cheese In The Trap. My newest addiction in 2016. Wondering a lot, giggling nonstop, and enjoying a lot the whole time watching. Even though it just only 4 episodes and still ongoing until the 16th episode, but it really hooked me. Fall in love with Hong Seol while swooning over Yoo Jung and In Ho.

CITT (4)Interesting story.

Well, what can you expect, this drama is based on Line webtoon, so I’m pretty sure that it will be quite funny, hilarious, cute, heartwarming and also a lit bit mysterious.

Based on the original webtoon with the same title by “Soon Ggi” which was published via “Naver Online” from 2010-July-07.

CITT (1)Hong Seol (Kim Go Eun) isn’t the smartest or most privileged university student, but she is without a doubt hardworking and earnest. In contrast, Hong Seol’s senior, Yoo Jeong (Park Hae Jin), is a high achiever with the good looks, athleticism and grades to prove it — but he harbors a dark side. Even stranger, an unlikely alliance is forged between these two classmates from opposite sides of the track * from *

Perfect cast.

There is no doubt that the director and producer did their best to cast the actors and actresses. They were all like some kind of people who came out from the comic book. They are perfectly suit for the character, IMHO.

CITT (3)Especially for Hong Seol character. I just love how Kim Go Eun perfectly portrayed her. Her natural beauty, her quirkiness, her nervousness, her gesture, her voice, her cute monolog, her outfit, her smile, is just perfect for the role * I am officialy her fan since then. *

Beautiful Cinematography.

Since the drama has been filmed before it airs, I think the production staff put their maximal efforts to do the editing, to make the drama looks so beautiful in its own way.

I love how they show the scene of Yoo Jung and Seoul in the campus near the stairs when they stared to each other, or when Yoo Jung silently following Seoul from behind after she had a hard time during presentation. It just beautiful.

Refreshing and addicting OST.

Somehow, I love almost all music or Original Soundtrack from dramas airs on TVN. Somehow, they always offered different kinds of music. At first, I hardly know the singer since it pretty much not a worldwide idol out there. But that what make it so refreshing. It just 4 episode, and I already downloaded all the OST * hopefully can buy the CD soon. * Repeatedly listen to it just because the beat, the tune, the song are all perfect fit for the drama.

That College Campus Look.

Actually, watch this drama make me sob just a little. Thinking back on how I look during my college campus day. Oh my dear, I am not even look  a tiny bit like them all * can I turn back the time puhleeees *

CITT 6How can’t I be swoon over of Yoo Jung sophisticated style, somehow look simple, classic, and casual. In love with Hong Seol comfortable and warm outfit. Last but not least, sporty Eun taek and girly Bo Ra style will surely make your college day look brighter * at least brighter than I do before *

So, if you haven’t watch this drama, I suggest you start now. You can watch it here or here.

And when watching and reading webtoon is not enough, why don’t you join Cheese In The Trap family in soompi, I bet you’ll get fast update and many interesting fact about this Cheese In The trap drama, not to mention, you’ll find new friends who is as crazy as you are. At least it help you lessen the suffering of waiting next episode to come.

25 Idol Actor in Kdramaland

For us who attracted by Kpop idol. For us who addicted to Kdrama. Just think of it as a treat when we watched our idol acted in kdramaland. Usually, the drama will be a big hit since almost all the Kpop singer, Boyband, or Girlband had a wide and loyal fanbase, locally and internationally.

New Addiction: Yong Pal, The Gang Doctor Drama and OST

Here come my newest addiction. After immerse into the story of Na Bong Sun and Chef Kang in the amazing drama called Oh My Ghostess (also known as Oh My Ghost), finally I can move on to another drama. Thanks God, Yong Pal is coming to the rescue.

Yong Pal is a Korean drama about a doctor named Kim Tae Hyun (played by the handsome and tall Joo Won) who is a very skillful surgeon. At day, he works in Hospital while at night he did a house call for gangster. And the sole reason is because he desperately need money to pay the loan shark and also to pay for her sister dialysis (she is very sick). * but I think, this Yong pal really love to be a doctor from the bottom of his heart. because no matter the reason is, no matter the patients status is, he will definitely help them. And he don’t care with other’s opinion about him. *

He then meets Han Yeo Jin (Kim Tae Hee)  a ‘princess’ who is in deep sleep in the hospital. * more like she is a sleeping beauty waiting for his prince which none other than Yong Pal * And that is where all the story began…

I really really love this drama * the prove is I following this currently airing drama. Usually, I am the type who will wait until the drama ends then watch it. But for Yong Pal, I patiently wait for the next episode to be aired. * The action, the intense, and the emotion portrayed by the actors are amazing. The Original Soundtrack, oh the OST is dragged me more into this drama.

Here is the list of the OST so far:

1. The One – To My Love ( OST Part 1)

2. James Brown – I feel Good (episode 3, when Yong Pal do the make over for his looks)

2. Yong Jun Hyung and Heo Ga Yoon – Nightmare (OST Part 2)

3. Westlife – Angel (episode 7, when Tae Hyun play a song from his phone for Yeo Jin)

4. Jung In – Actually, I’m Scared (OST Part 3)

5. Baek Ah Yeon – So We Are (OST Part 4)

6. K. Will – Coming To Me (OST Part 5)

7. Park Hye Soo – Remember Me Only (OST Part 6)


25 Korean Drama Based on Manga/ Manhwa/ WebToon/ Webcomic

We have seen lots of Manga, Manhwa (Korean Manga), Webtoon, or Webcomic made into live action dramas in many countries especially countries in Asia. Sometimes, these drama is better than the original itself. But, there are also some that really out of our expectation and made us stop watching it after few episodes.

The good thing about these kinds of dramas are, we already know the story so we won’t be tortured to wait next episode when it airs. Also, we already can imagine all the cast looks like and how would they act. The bad thing is we already had our own imagination and expectation about the story and the cast, so if it not fit into ours, then somehow it will ruin the drama.

Here are 25 Kdrama from manga/manhwa/webtoon/webcomic I have tried to enjoy * although I must say, I am not quite enjoy all of them. Since I drop off the drama after few episode *

25 Korean Drama Made Me Cry a River

I do love drama * been saying that repeatedly in lots of my other post * in case you still don’t know. And I had to admit that kdrama had a big part of why I love drama. they are really good to turned my emotion up and down, just like experiencing rollercoaster. Sometimes, it made me tired, emotionally.

Especially when it comes to tragis or sad drama. Which they are expert on that * after i watched so many drama from other country, I guess Korean people still the best in portraying sad or tragic scene * The tragic here means, one of the lead end up dead, both lead were dead, or second lead which I hardly ship more than the lead is dead * forgive me for adding this term of tragic on my own since sometimes I cheer for the second lead more. Sometimes, I said :p * In the end, It was NOT a happy ending nor the one that keep us wondering whether it was a happy or sad ending.

So, here are 25 kdrama that made me cry a river * suddenly, Justin Timberlake song was playing in my mind * Get yourself prepared with whole bunch of tissue when you decided to watched them. But, let me remind you, Spoiler Alert for those who dislike spoilers.

1. I’m Sorry, I love you (2004)

So Ji Sub as Cha Moo Hyuk
Im Soo Jung as Song Eun Chae
Jung Kyung Ho as Choi Yune
Seo Ji Young as Kang Min Joo

For heaven’s sake, hands down for this drama with 16 episodes. THIS is the one and only, the most SAD and TRAGIC drama I’ve ever watched. Not only in the whole kdramaland, but in the whole dramaland.  It was sad, emotionally tiring, depressing, that it made my heart and head hurts so much * lebaaay * I cry a river through all episodes. Adding more, is the original soundtrack, very touching and sad too.

It’s about a man who thrown away from his family to another country, separated with his twin, being left out by his love life, took bullet for the woman he love, had the bullet stuck in his head, hate by his real mother * because his mother didn’t know he is her son * spent his life for revenge, envy with his so called brother, and feeling guilty for the new love he found that he decided to leave her because he didn’t want her to be sad. In the end, he died alone in Australia and donate his heart for his so called brother * huaaaa T_T *

What is even more sad is, the woman he love, followed him. She suicide in his grave. She wrote some letter before she suicide,

“Even when I was living, he was lonely. So, I couldn’t leave him alone like that. Just this once in my life, I’m thinking of myself and living for myself. I’ll accept any punishment that comes. Song Eun Chae.”

  • where is the tissue, please….  * after I watched this drama, life is never be the same * lebaaay *

Pertama kali nonton drama ini, bener2 nyesek di hati. Sampe sekarang belom ada yang bisa gantiin drama ini sebagai drama ter sedih dan tertragis sepanjang masa at least for me 4 thumbs up for both of the lead.

I fell in love with Park Shin Hye in this drama eventhough she is only appeared as a child female lead * since then, I am officially following all of her drama * If you looking for a drama with cinderella them * with step mother and evil sister * unforgotten first love, accident, amnesia, and involved a cancer inside.

This is definitely the perfect one. Just when all the storms finally wash out and we think they finally get together happily ever after then here comes cancer that wake us all from the happy ending dream. She died and he is living his lonely life. What a cruel life indeed.

In Indonesia, I guess only a few people who love kdrama who still don’t know this one. It was one of the first drama invaded our country back then. Booming if I must say. This is the starter or what we called Korean fever in Indonesia. Even I was collected any kind of merchandise about Won Bin * back then long time ago *

The story is kind of cliche typical korean drama. 4 lead whose life tangled together. Unforgotten first love. Unrequited love for the second lead. A suffering life of the female lead. Last but not least, a fatal disease of the female lead, which is in this case is Leukemia * like her life is not miserable enough * Cry bucket of tears back then * because it was my first time watched kdrama and I haven’t met MISA (I’m Sorry I love you).

How can it not be sad or tragic if I may say. Eun Suh died because of her sickness. Then in the end, Joon Suh was hit by a truck. Only God know if they reunited in heaven or not. In this drama also, first time I ship the second lead more than the first lead. I just love Won Bin here :p

Not happen in real though * Wol Ryung and Seo Hwa love story is tragic. They meant for each other but they came from a different world and that what make them separated. I cry hard for Wol Ryung, when he learned that the woman he love betrayed him. I cry for Seo Hwa when I finally realized that she did love him deep down inside her heart.

It is 20 episodes of drama. Very very tragic.

Because the 3 leads are end up dead. Jae Min had a misunderstanding with Soo Jung, jealousy and hatred filled him that trigger him to killed Soo jung and In Wook together.

I’m Sorry, I Love You (MiSa)

A Drama that really breaks my heart.

Judul: I’m Sorry, I Love You (MiSa)
Anime: I’m Sorry, I Love You (MiSa)
Genre: Drama, Romance, Tragis
Jumlah Episode: 16
Channel: KBS2
Rilis: 9 November 2004 – 28 desember 2004
Sutradara: Lee Hyung Min
Screenwriter: Lee Kyung Hee
• Cha Moo Hyuk (So Ji Sub)
• Song Eun Chae (Im Su Jung)
• Choi Yuna (Jung Kyung Ho)
• Kang Min joo (Seo Ji Young)
• Oh Deul Hee/ Ibu Yuna dan Moo Hyuk (Lee Hye Young)


Cha Moo Hyuk adalah anak korea yang diadopsi oleh keluarga Australia. Sejak itu, ia besar dan tinggal di Australia. Namun sayang, Moo Hyuk mengalami penganiayaan oleh orang tuanya dan kemudian hidup sebagai gelandangan. Moo Hyuk selalu percaya bahwa suatu hari ia akan bertemu dengan ibunya, ibu yang dipercayainya hidup di Korea dalam keadaan tidak mampu sehingga terpaksa membiarkan dirinya di adopsi. Bahkan ia berjanji suatu hari akan kembali ke Korea dan membahagiakan Ibunya.

Suatu hari, nasib mempertemukannya dengan seorang gadis dari Korea bernama Eun Chae. Eun Chae bekerja sebagai coordinator untuk Choi Yuna, penyanyi terkenal di Korea, yang diam-diam dicintainya sedari kecil. Pertemuan keduanya ini, ternyata hanya sebuah awal dari sebuah kisah di antara mereka. Pertemuan inilah yang nantinya memengaruhi kehidupan EunChae. Bukan hanya Eun Chae, tetapi juga kehidupan Yuna dan keluarganya.  Karena dalam perjalanannya, terungkap bahwa Keluarga Yuna adalah keluarga kandung Moo Hyuk.

Cerita semakin menarik ketika Moo Hyuk divonis dokter bahwa hidupnya paling lama tinggal 3 bulan lagi. Mengetahui hal ini, Moo Hyuk berusaha mencari Ibu Kandungnya. Namun kenyataan yang ditemuinya, membuat kerinduannya berubah menjadi amarah dan dendam. Disinilah kehadiran Eun Chae menjadi berarti, karena dia berhasil mengubah hatinya.

“Moo Hyuk: Eun Chae, maafkan aku, tetapi bersama denganmu membuat aku merasa Tuhan tidak adil padaku. Dan membuat aku tidak rela menerima takdirku. Ketika melihatmu, aku menjadi ingin hidup lebih lama. Padahal, hidupku sudah tidak lama lagi.”

“Moo Hyuk: Kepala batu, Mianhanda…. Saranghanda…


Kdrama ini salah satu kdrama yang tidak pernah bosan saya menontonnya. Bahkan, mama saya yang jarang sekali menonton drama korea dari episode pertama sampai episode terakhir, rela menemani saya melahap habis drama ini. Beliau pun masih mengingat ceritanya hingga hari ini. Drama ini juga yang membuat saya semakin jatuh hati dengan akting So Ji Sub setelah drama ini, saya jadi berburu kdrama yang dia perankan.

Ceritanya yang unik, pemeran yang tepat, dan akhir cerita yang tragis namun tidak mudah ditebak, membuat saya semakin menyukai drama yang satu ini. Ceritanya, So Ji Sub berperan ganda, menjadi dua orang dengan nama yang berbeda, tetapi sebenarnya sama. Tidak hanya sampai di situ, kisah hidupnya yang bisa dibilang tidak bahagia dan juga kerinduannya terhadap sosok seorang Ibu kandung sekaligus kebenciannya teradap ibunya tersebut, serta penyakit yang dideritanya, membuat para penonton terlebih lagi saya tidak mudah untuk melupakannya.

Ditambah lagi, ada sosok adik kembar yang menderita keterbelakangan mental dan keponakan laki-laki yang lucu nan pintar. Rasanya baru kali ini saya melihat drama korea yang banyak tokohnya dengan cerita yang tidak membosankan dan melebar kemana-mana. Ditambah ending-nya yang sediiiiiiiiiiiiiih banget, plus OST yang sesuai banget dengan cerita di dalam drama. Bisa dibilang, drama ini menawarkan paket lengkap. Satu kata untuk drama ini: Total!!!

Drama ini juga dibuat versi animenya. Bagi saya yang memang menyukai drama ini, tentu saja versi animenya juga menarik perhatian saya.



Winter Sonata


Judul: Winter Sonata (2002)
Anime: Winter Sonata (2009)
Genre: Drama, Romance
Jumlah Episode: 20
Channel: KBS2
Rilis: 14 Januari 2002 – 19 Maret 2002
Sutradara: Yun Seok Ho, Lee Hyung Min

Screenwriter: Kim Eun Hee, Yoon Eun Kyung, Oh Soo Yun
• Kang Joon sang/Lee Min hyung (Bae Yong Jun)
• Jung Yu jin (Choi Ji Woo)
• Kim Sang hyuk (Park Yong Ha [RIP])
• Oh Che lin (Park Sol Mi)
• Kang Mi hee alias Ibunya Joon sang (Song Ok Sook)

Joon Sang pindah ke SMA baru demi mencari ayah kandungnya. Di SMA tersebut, ia bertemu dengan Yu Jin dan Sang Hyuk. Yu Jin dan Sang Hyuk adalah teman sedari kecil, meskipun Sang Hyuk ingin menjadi lebih dari sekadar teman, Yu Jin hanya menganggap dia sebagai saudara. Ketika mereka melakukan perjalanan, Joon Sang sempat menyelamatkan Yu Jin dari kecelakaan. Sejak saat itu, hubungan mereka menjadi lebih dekat. Namun, keadaan dan nasib tidak mengizinkan cinta mereka untuk bersatu. Di malam ketika mereka janji untuk bertemu, Joon Sang mengalami kecelakaan dan dikabarkan meninggal. Sejak itu, ia menghilang dari kehidupan Yu Jin. Sepuluh tahun kemudian, nasib mempertemukan kembali Yu Jin dengan seseorang yang mirip dengan Joon sang yang bernama Min Hyung (beda di gaya rambut sama wardrobe aja sih, tapi saya suka Bae Yong Jun sebagai Min Hyung). Sejak itu, Yu jin, yang masih sangat mencintai Joon Sang, mulai berharap bahwa Min Hyung adalah Joon Sang.

Bagi saya, winter sonata menjadi kdrama pertama yang membuat saya jatuh cinta terhadap musik dan lagu-lagu korea. Bisa dibilang, sejak nonton drama ini, saya jadi mulai deh ‘hunting’ lagu-lagu korea. Setelah saya dapet OST Winter Sonata, OST drama ini resmi jadi ‘teman seperjalanan’ saya keliling beberapa tempat di Jawa. Bahkan, saya inget banget, pas saya di Bromo, saya beli syal (secara di bromo, dini hari pula, dinginnya broooo) terus saya pake layaknya Bae Yong Jun make syal di Winter Sonata sekalian saya dengarkan OST Winter Sonata disepanjang perjalanan saya ke puncak Bromo (Malu juga kalo saya inget sekarang).

Tapppppi, bukan hanya OST yang membuat saya tidak bisa melupakan drama ini, melainkan juga Sosok Bae Yong Jun itu sendiri dan juga jalan ceritanya. Saya rasa karisma Bae Yong Jun di drama ini masih terbawa hingga sekarang. Contohnya saja, saya pernah membaca sebuah artikel mengenai Bae Yong Jun di mana ceritanya Bae Yong Jun ketemuan sama Kim Hyun Joong (SS501, Boys Before Flower) di suatu kafe entah di Korea atau di Jepang (lupa mode on). Nah, Di kafe itu, coba tebak, siapa yang dikerumuni dan dimintai foto bareng juga tanda tangan. Tidak lain dan tidak bukan adalah Yong-sama alias Bae Yong Jun, sementara Kim Hyun Joong merasa terheran-heran. Bayangin deh, Kim Hyun Joong yang notabene idola anak zaman sekarang, yang cakep itu, yang suaranya juga ga jelek-jelek amat. Ck ck ck ck, kalah pamor sama Yong-sama. Segitu besarnya ya pesona Bae Yong Jun.

Anyway, sangking terkenalnya Winter Sonata, pada akhirnya dibuat versi manhwa (komik korea) dan anime (kartun jepang). Kerennya lagi, pengisi suara anime-nya adalah pemain aslinya. Dan ending ceritanya pun dibuat happy ending banget. Seperti yang kita tahu (yang udah nonton), ending versi kdrama agak menggantung, seperti belum selesai. So, kalo pengen nonton yang happy ending banget, coba deh liat versi anime, dijamin tidak akan rugi deh (yah, kecuali fakta bahwa Yong-sama sudah lebih tua dari pada ketika dia main versi dramanya)



Hooked by Korean Drama “The Heirs” Original Soundtrack

the heirs ost

So, after I watched The Heirs episode 12. Can not help myself to stop heard the OST. Actually it’s been replaying in my head. I’ve been hooked, definitely. Whether I listen to it from my hand phone or not. Crazy. I may say that this drama OST is one of the best. I mean, all the OST so far is amazing and really fit to the storyline. Some drama, not just kdrama, only couple of their OST could catch the viewer and listener heart. But this drama OST really captured lots of people who watched and listen to its OST. I probably in my fangirl mode, kdrama lover mode.

As far as I remember, the last time I am being like this is when I watched Queen In Hyun’s Man and it’s already long before. And for your info, I’m not so into Lee Min Ho * am I weird?, cos I believe there were lots of people who really fall into his charms. *

So, when I first watch this drama, I am not in my fangirl mode at all. All I expected is to watch a drama full of eye candy and lighthearted high school life * turned out to be wrong. It is a very thoughtful and deeper drama * just as a way to relax my brain and mind from everyday routine.

But, after watched from one episode to another, damn, I gradually turn back into my fangirl mode. And the OST, keep replaying them in phone. And after finished watching the drama, I am officially became MinShin shipper (MinShin = Min Ho & Shin Hye).

Korean Fever

background kdrama

Nowadays, Korean fever have influence people all over the world, including my own country, Indonesia. For me, Korean culture already touched my interest since I was teenager.

But that day, the fever was not as big as now. As I recall, back then, I even hardly found friends who I can share about it. So, my interest back then, only kept for myself.

Although it’s understandable. I’ve grown up surrounded by Indonesian Culture and American culture with a little touch of Japanese Culture.

Especially for music and fashion, I was so into American and Japanese. Mostly, I listen and watch American music and dramas, also anime (Japanese cartoon). Even the book I mostly read was Japanese comic known as manga.

As from my own country culture, I was infected by the music, Dangdut, and the traditional dance, such as Jaipong. Although all these was my late father doing.

He gave us freedom to enjoy other cultures, but he always made us remember our own culture. He ‘forced’ us to watched lenong, wayang, or even dangdut performances.

In return, he bought me cassettes or video of my favorite artist, such as, Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi etc. He ‘pushed’ me to learn Jaipong dance, which I thanked him for pushing me for doing it.

He occasionally took us to places related to Indonesian culture, for instance, to the Museum, Taman Mini Indonesia Indah, gallery or Taman Ismail Marzuki, and sooo many more, that I couldn’t even remember.

But, I guess, his efforts is not wasted. I am, right now, not forget my own culture, and even more proud of it.

Ok, back to Korean fever. Now, everywhere, everytime, I could hear about Korean. Whether its music, fashion, dramas, movies, make up, accessories, artist, even its own country.

Truthfully, I am so happy, since now I have many friends who I can share about it. And I think it is quite good, Since they also came from Asia continent. And now, we have more choices, not only America or Europe.

For me, I rather have positive attitude towards these new trends. I mean, we could learn something positive from it. If Korean can do it, why can’t we? Maybe one day, I could read someone writing about Indonesian fever. It is not something impossible, right.

Anyway, If I like Korean culture, it doesn’t mean I’m so into Korean that I am no longer Indonesian. I may have a crush with Korean culture that sometimes reflected in my everyday life, but inside my heart, I am still, definitely, Indonesian.

And still hoping for Indonesia to be much better than other country, someday. So, since right now, Korean fever is all around the world, why don’t we get infected and join the fun.

Start by listen to their music (click here to listen) and watch their awesome dramas (click here to find the drama you want), then join one of the forum (click here to join), and I’m pretty sure you’ll end up being infected soon.
