I often get a lot of  questions online asking me what my favorite ________ are, so I thought that I should make this page and save myself some time from future questions. (But you’re welcome to ask anyway. That’s what formspring is for!) These are all in no particular order and alphabetized by category. The number of favorites varies in each category but I’ll try not to list more than 15. Hopefully. For the drama section, I really could only list my favorite Korean dramas since I haven’t watched enough Taiwanese or Japanese ones to come up with a coherent list. This list is also pretty tentative and may be subject to change in the future. Let me know if I should add any new categories too!

  1. Ah, endodo, I think we would get along famously in real life. Or at least, we would have lots to talk about, since we both enjoy so many of the same things. ^_^

    • Ah, hello estel! 🙂

      I’m sure we would get along pretty well in real life. Since you’re also ockoala unni’s dongsaeng, I guess that makes us sisters. ^^

  2. I absolutely love your lists. I think I agree quite a bit! Its cool to know there’s someone out there loving the same things I do! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Please say that you “forgot” Lee Seo Jin among your favorite nale actors, esp since you liked Damo. Please review Yi San and Gye Baek if you need convincing
