It was Kingdom on ntflx, bc I like post apocalyptic stuff. That then softened my attitude towards reading subtitles (I’m dyslexic), which had been the biggest obstacle for me previously getting into series in a language I don’t speak. After that I think I did Crash landing on you, bc I like North Korean topics etc. Subsequently I couldn’t stop anymore
I became such a crazy fan of the series that I watched all Japanese Versions and the original version, no matter how old it is, is my favorite till today. I still have other international versions of Itazura Na Kiss in my watchlist. Currently watching Taiwanese Version but is on hold for a few months now.
My very first Kdrama was “Crash Landing on You” I initially refused to watch it because of the subtitles. I am so glad my friend convinced me. I have now since July 2020 watched in upwards of 50 dramas including two T-dramas and a C-drama. Totally hooked. My #1 is Guardian the Lonely and Great God! Currently watching “I Am Not a Robot”
My very first k-drama was Hwarang. It’s definitely not my favorite but I enjoyed it enough to watch more. I liked it more when I was watching it but then I found To the Beautiful You and that changed my love for k-dramas completely.
