In March 2018, I randomly made a side blog on Tumblr so I could scream about the kdramas I was watching because no one I knew in real life was watching them. I was doing hit and trial on Tumblr for the blog name and Kdramaomo just felt the right fit.
what to expect from this blog
Korean Drama recommendations, spoiler-free reviews, in-depth discussions, dramas you haven't heard about, dramas you should add to your watch list, dramas can avoid (because I took the bullet for you and watched it instead), genre-wise, mood-wise, and everything in between. With a good mix of Asian dramas, English series, movies, K-pop, books, fashion, and skincare.
I also send Newsletters every month which are as much fun to read as they are for me to make them.
a little something about me
My name is Krati. I am a blogger by passion and a content writer by profession. I have got four degrees - a bachelor's in computer science engineering, two degrees in journalism, and a Ph.D. in kdramas & memes (one of these is useless- guess which one?)
My first introduction to Korean Dramas was back in 2004 with Full House when I was very young and even though I didn't fully understand the drama I was still obsessed with it. A story about a girl who enters a contract marriage with a famous actor! it was better than any princess stories I was watching on Disney, lol. But shortly after the drama ended the channel that was airing the drama also got canceled so I went back to Disney.
Fast forward to the time when I was in high school and found K-dramas again with Boys over flowers and I have been lost in Kdramaland ever since.
FAVORITE DRAMAS: It's a long list, very long. Please stay tuned for it.
FAVORITE MOVIES: Harry Potter, To All The Boys I've Loved Before, Legally Blonde, Turning Red, etc., etc.
FAVORITE MUSIC: My playlist has a good mix of English, Korean, and Latin artists like Taylor Swift, One Direction, Epik High, and Little Mix but I am a hardcore BTS stan since 2016. Other than Korean Dramas, BTS take all my heart and time. I love them to the moon and back.
FAVORITE BOOKS: I love reading a lot! It keeps me sane. Some of my favorites books and series are Throne of Glass series, Harry Potter, Six of Crows, The Foxhole Court, The Sword of Kaigen, and The Ember Blade.
OTHER SHOWS: Shadow and Bone, Gilmore Girls, Schitt's Creek, Derry Girls, Friends, New Girl, Gane of Thrones, Stranger Things, Demon Slayer, and Only Murders in the Building.
LOVE: Oppas ;), Tea in the afternoons, Coffee when I am writing, Rain, Cozy Jumpers, Candles, snuggling in my bed and binge-watching dramas, Reading (books and fanfics), Bullet Journal, Podcasts, Skincare, Desserts but also Spicy Food. I am an introvert but I live to travel, fangirl, starry nights, and 2 am talk about life.
a passion and a promise
Around the time I fell in love with kdramas, I used to follow a kdrama blog religiously. The blog officially closed a few years ago. That blog was and is still one of my biggest inspirations. I learned a lot from them, it was one of my favorite places on the internet. I loved them and I still do.
I was so influenced by them that I didn't watch any drama that the blog didn't recommend. It was not a problem at first but slowly the blog started dropping dramas and selective viewing. It took me about two years to realize that the bloggers were just not into kdramas anymore and I started watching everything. What was more shocking to me was the fact that some of the dramas they dropped became my favorite dramas of all time.
Why am I telling you this? Because this taught me how big of a responsibility blogging is and I want to make a promise to myself and my readers that I will always be careful and committed if I am not, I will say so.
Please don't be hesitant to reach out to me, here, or on any other social media, I love hearing from other kdrama lovers. I have met some of my very lovely friends through kdramas. Seriously, let's be friends.
