Before I became an editor of lifestyle and entertainment websites, and way before I became a full-time lifestyle blogger, I used to handle publicity for entertainment shows of GMA Network. Yes, my first job out of college was in show business, and I loved it! Aside from local shows, I also handled publicity for Asian dramas, especially Koreanovelas like Jewel in the Palace, My Name is Kim Sam Soon, and Full House, among others.
So yes, there’s a soft spot in my heart for K-Drama, kahit hindi halata, haha. I’m a secret Koreanovela fan, with the titles above as well as Stairway to Heaven and Uncontrollably Fond as my all-time favorites. Like you, I’m currently on the lookout for more Korean series to binge-watch, so I was so glad to learn that I can watch all the K-Dramas I want on Viu through Globe.
