Have you jumped on the K-boat yet?

We watch many English tv shows and with platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime we are more aware to international dramas be it Turkish, Indian, Spanish etc. One such huge showbiz world of drama or now termed as jumping on the “K boat” are the Korean tv drama that marks the heart of the viewers. With their rich Joseon history, superstitious beliefs, and amazing turn to stories, k dramas are a treat to watch. K-Dramas vary from historical, fantasy, sci-fi, action, rom-com, melodramas to suspense and thriller-with the diverse choice there's something for everyone. I recently watched “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” and I can’t put into words what an amazing show it was. From a captivating story line to amazing cinematography, the drama was full of emotions of life: love, sadness, regret, betrayal, forgiveness. I specifically loved the fashion within these series and how every outfit she wore reflected her personality, actions and confidence at that time. From the devil in Prada red heels to the brave girl facing her past and fears in the blood red gown to the floral dress when she falls in love, fashion is applaudable in the mega successful series. As the story line progressed, so did the art of her dressing and it really amazed me how a play of wardrobe can add that much to the emotions of the character and the series as a whole.


So grab your laptop, log in Netflix and start your journey on the K boat with this drama if you haven’t already!

Haven't watched Korean shows yet. But tried a couple from different languages like Money Heist and some popular Turkish dramas. Unfortunately, just didnt get the hype. Watching in subtitles was very distracting. Perhaps it's just not my cup of tea.

That happens alot with people ... but sometimes there are such good Tv shows that one can try to watch with subtitles etc. But I get your frustration.

OMG!!! It's Okay To Not Be Okay" is my most favorite Netflix show!!! I love how everyone was handling themselves, fighting with their fears and they were making sure that their loved ones are okay as well! Every Sang Tae needs a brother like Moon Gang Tae and every Moon Gang Tae needs a friend like Jae Sue! And of course, Ko Mun Yeong was absolutely stunning through out the drama! She did justice to her character.

I think personally my biggest barrier to K-dramas and even anime is the language barrier - I somehow find it very distracting to not be able to understand the audio at all and having to rely on subtitles as a sole aid. However, I did manage to finish Narcos on Netflix very easily, and it was almost entirely in Spanish! So i think I'll give K dramas a chance too

I think you get used to it slowly. And once you get hooked to the story line and amazing actors you won’t find language barrier a problem. Do give it a try!
