Several years ago I was flipping through the channels on a motel TV when I came across Dae Jang Geum. At first I just wanted to know what country the costumes were from. Within a few minutes I guessed that it was Korea and that Korea was really good at making TV shows. Both guesses turned out to be right.
Eventually I realized that I'm going to watch several thousand hours of K-Dramas before I die so I might as well start learning Korean.
