Perhaps it is due to the “cable” factor. Or it is thanks to the writers’ past experience in writing “real variety” shows. Or still yet, maybe the actors are simply doing a great job bringing …

I actually wanted to post a separate introduction for myself but after some thought, I figured that this post would suffice for now. I also wrote a mini autobio about me in the “about” tab if anyone wants to check it out. I look forward to hearing from you all and hopefully reuniting with long lost friends!
Bluesy actually inspired me to write this so this is to you and my very first post. Thank you for the warm welcome and honor for joining you on our new, joint adventure!
Also like Blue, I LOVE lists. I have about a million of them and they still continue to grow…
For someone who claims to have no time, I spend alot of time sampling dramas. I rarely pick up a drama from the get-go unless the storyline is interesting, hype (media or underground), my personal boredom barometer, writer, director, cast, recommendations, and mood.
I say that I “sample” them as I have a very methodical way for determining the dramas that I will watch and to move forward with it. Well… “sampling” = me fastforwarding scenes until a particular line/actor/actress/outfit catches my eye. I have to say that this method has been about 80% effective in weeding out dramas that are not worth the necessary time committment. However, this said it’s the pesky 20% of dramas that I actually decide to stick around for that attest to the fact that this sampling method is not entirely effective.
Only two days since our launching, change is already in the air! ”Electric ground” will now be a joint blog run by Bella and myself. (You may recognize her as “Bellaangel012″ from Soompi.)
One fateful day two years ago, we met on a drama thread at Soompi. I smirked, “Bellaangel012, huh?” And she smirked back, “Blue_angel_1004, huh?” And it was love at first sight.
Nah, but we did hit it off right away, and started exchanging emails on Korean dramas, celebrity gossip, and umm, shoes? She is the closest thing to a doppelganger I’ll ever have, and at more than one occasions we freaked each other out on whether we might be long-lost twin sisters after all.
I admit it. I do watch a lot of dramas. But I always rationalize it by reminding myself of all the dramas that I end up NOT watching every year. For instance, between the daily dramas, morning dramas, Monday/Tuesday dramas, Wednesday/Thursday dramas, weekend dramas, daily sitcoms, and cable dramas, I counted 81 dramas that aired some or all of its episodes in 2010 so far. Phew, now that’s a lot of dramas!
