I love watching korean series and movies. Although the storyline might not be original, some are even copied from hollywoood films, I find these movies and series very interesting. I like the different settings and ofcourse, the drop-dead gorgeous guys and gals of korean showbiz. They like experimenting ....pairing their stars with different partners unlike here in the Philippines where people are hooked to loveteams. Nevermind if the role doesn't fit a particular star.
And with this current obsession, I've grown to love the korean language too. Nevermind, if I can only understand simple words like annyong haseyo, saranghaeyo, kamsamnida etc.
Within the past two years that I've been hooked to HALLYU, I've collected different quotes from my fave korean series and movies. These quotes may seem mushy but one has to really watch the movie or series first to be able to appreciate these quotes! :)
My top 10 fave korean series/movie quotes:
1. " On snowy days, my love, mr snowman, may actually be thinking about me." --- Yoorin (My Girl)
