K-Dramas opened up a new world of knowledge for me. Below is a small list of what I learned from K- Dramas about Korea.
Korea is a very rich country. People live only in palaces, penthouses, large apartments or detached country houses. The very few people that live in small places are just eccentrics that hide their huge fortunes for their own reasons.
The majority of the Korean population are entrepreneurs, lawyers, prosecutors or policemen.
Korean men are all very very tall.
They are well dressed and they wear all of them a lot of make up and lipstick too.
All Korean men favour also the same haircut. Short at the back with bangs in the front.
Korean women unfortunately don’t seem to be that tall. They are all of them two heads shorter than their men. But they are immune to cold and that is probably the reason why they wear the shortest of skirts even in arctic cold conditions.
They wear also a lot of make up and they favour lipsticks in very bright neon pink colours.
Both males and females are fond of their slippers. So they wear them indoors with any possible outfit. Tuxedos, evening gowns, suits or dresses, all have their matching pair of slippers!
Koreans are very romantic people. According to what I saw in K-Dramas they can fall in love with everyone and everything that is exotic enough to excite their romantic fantasies. Humans and Humanoids, Ghosts and Goblins, Extra Terrestrials and Androids, Mermaids and Demons but also Royals and non royals, all species and sub species deserve according to K-Dramas to be loved and they will eventually be loved in Korea.
Koreans are also very emotional people. They can cry their eyes out for any existent or non existent reason, in any possible or impossible place. They cry alone or with company, in private or public places, in their jobs, in their houses, in the living room or in their bathroom, inside Korean borders or abroad, inside the train stations, or air terminals, everywhere and anywhere they feel the need to do so …They cry a LOT! But thought they cry that much they never have red or swollen eyes. So they can cry their eyes out, stop and repeat.
According to K-Dramas Koreans reproduce by kissing. I wasn’t able to find any indication that they might have sex like all other people in this world. But they are such good kissers that is a pleasure to watch them kissing.
Koreans are also very fit and healthy people. The reason why they are so fit is that they are constantly in love and run after their subject of love. They run even after the vehicles that their subject of love is in, with a special preference towards trains. Their reasoning probably is that the fastest it is the vehicle then most effective the workout will be… or something similar.
When they don’t run after trains or other vehicles they drive either only KIA cars, or only Hyundai cars, or only Maserati cars. But you’ll never see all these different brands of cars mixed together in the streets’ traffic. I suspect that there must be a law that forbids to Koreans to drive different brands of cars simultaneously on the same street, probably for purist reasons. Or that they might have dedicated some days to specific car brands… who knows…
There are some certain chain restaurants that Koreans visit everyday from the day they born to the day they die.
According to K-Dramas Korea has only two cities Seoul and Busan. Seoul is probably a very small city with very few streets and that is the reason why K-Dramas take place always on the same streets. All people walk on these few streets because there are no other places to go.
The other city has very few streets too, but its train is infected with zombies so those who are not fans of the genre don’t use it that often. So the trains towards the only other Korean city, come and go empty in order to provide the appropriate workout for Seoul citizens.
Seoul has a river too that according K Dramas has only one bridge. The motor way of this bridge has a lot of traffic, but as I said previously the traffic is consistent either by all KIAs or all Hyundais or all Mazeratis.
And that’s about all I learned from K-Dramas about Korea! I’m sure though that there might be many other things that those of you who are are more familiar with K- Dramas already know. So if I missed something please enlighten me by joining this thread.
