Of Korean Dramas and Intertwined Fates

Malaysians have definitely not been strangers to the Kdrama Wave that has swept the globe with engaging storytelling and swoon-worthy romances. For most of us kdrama fans, binging on kdramas is a way of life; gritting your teeth at despicable villains who threaten our protagonists, sighing out loud at a lover’s passionate confession, clicking “next episode” at the speed of light when the episode ends on a cliffhanger and then going “I regret nothing” when it’s suddenly five in the morning… Continue reading Of Korean Dramas and Intertwined Fates

YouTube Channels That Are Fighting Misconceptions

“Hey guys, welcome to my channel! Don’t forget to like, share and subscribe!”

Isn’t that something we hear way too often these days? In a world where Youtube has climbed its way up to being one of the most frequently used social media sites, many have turned to the platform as a means of creating content according to one’s interests with the hope of gaining attention, expressing themselves, or as a means of income through the many (intensely detested) ads that pop up before videos.

Why I Don’t Support the K-Wave Trend

K-dramas. K-pop. K-beauty. K-fashion. These are the things that brought upon the trend of the K-Wave. From what Google tells me, the Korean Wave (a.k.a. Hallyu) came into the public eye during 1999 when the drama “Autumn in my heart” first premiered. Now, it’s just trending as ever, and it refuses to die down. K-pop has been dominating our local radio channels, and groups like BTS and BLACKPINK have made their way onto international waters. Korean makeup and fashion also surfed the waves too, as many people try to recreate the looks of their favourite idol or their favourite K-drama character.

Style is a crucial part of our identity. How we choose to dress is an overt description of our personality that we craft ourselves.
