What is your favorite drama?
Proposal Daisakusen (Operation Love)
This drama follows Ken as he watches his best friend/one true love Rei get married to another man. Ken then meets a fairy who allows him to go back in time and change the past to give Ken a second chance to win the heart of the girl he loves.
I love this drama because of the messages they taught me while i was watching, to live life without any regrets. Try as hard as you can right now in the present and to do everything you can now.
What was the first drama you watched?
I remember i had a obsession with Rain for a while after watching this drama lol. From what i remember this drama was about a couple pretending to be married in front of the public and living in the same house. I never rewatched this drama, probably cause Rain had ugly clothes XD.
I don’t have a favorite solo artsit as of right now, but i have soo many favortie groups! TVXQ will always have a special place in my heart. Right now i’m loving Big Bang, 2ne1, CNBLUE, WINNER, Jay Park, Ailee. I don’t listen to as much jpop as i used to but i always liked Ayumi Hamasaki and Utada Hikaru. And i LOVE the girl group Bright.
Fairy Tail is my current favorite action manga. I started watching the anime first but when the new episode hadn’t aired yet i started reading the manga. I love the main characters and its really funny!
For romantic/girly themed manga/anime i will always love Sailor Moon! I remember watching this show on tv when i was little and ever since this show i’ve always love the magical girl theme in anime/manga! And this is probably what started my obsession for stars lol.
Fav asian food?
I don’t really have a certain culture’s food more than the other but i LOVE stir fry! I think its always been my favorite, i remember always looking forward to my mom’s stir fry when i was a kid and i still do! To this day i ask her to make stir fry for me because my mom’s cooking is the best! I’m learning my own techniques nowadays and its good but it will never compare to my mom’s cooking.
How did your asia obsession start?
I think it started from when i used to watch Dragon Ball with my brothers when i was a kid. As i grew older i started listening to anime music, and then got into jpop from there. When i was in middle school my friends at the time were really into korean stuff so thats probably how i go into kpop. I liked BoA at first in middle school, in high school i was listening to Rain, and then i ventured into TVXQ and Big Bang. Aside from music and anime i love asian cosmetics and skincare! I used to like korean makeup styles but now the “no-makeup makeup” look isn’t really my thing. I like color :), but my clothes still need color :(.
How has your obsession influence your life?
This is going to sound weird but watching dramas and anime has helped my way of life lol. For example when i first watched Naruto i felt i could relate to Naruto, I had just moved to a new town, i didn’t have any friends and i was a loner. But watching Naruto try and be the best he can to get noticed/recognition influenced me to do the same. Even though its not real i’m glad that i watched these drama/anime while growing up because it kind of helped influence who i am today. Same with music, music was there when i was down and it helped me cheer up and to meet some of my greatest friends today.
Are you interested in any asian languages?
I’ve always wanted to learn japanese (so i can watch anime without subtites lol!)
