There’s more than one drama that answers today’s challenge question, but one that immediately comes to mind is Full House. What, the one starring Rain and Song Hye Gyo? Yup, that’s the one! Even more shocking is the fact that I own the DVD box set and drama OST. Back when I first started watching Kdramas, Full House was responsible for tipping me over the edge, not completely, mind you, but enough for me to officially become a Kdrama addict. Up until that point I was a closet Kdrama fan, and I watched dramas sparingly.
I was so incredibly obsessed about this drama, from buying posters to CDs, to repeatedly marathoning the episodes and plastering photos of Rain on my bedroom walls. This drama was probably the first out of a plethora of dramas that involved contract marriages, and perhaps that’s what made Full House so addicting. Or maybe because I was sucked into the Rain craze. I don’t really know.
Regardless, I still don’t mind rewatching bits and pieces of it to this day. Even when it’s filled with logical fallacies and plot holes, it puts a smile on my face. Objectively, it’s a bad drama. Yet it remains a personal favorite of mine, one that has had an inexplicable hold on me, a drama that immensely gratifies on any given day.
