Kdrama Weekly's Resident Rom-com Ahjumma
Hi there! I’m Sandra, the eldest of us Kdrama Weekly hosts, I’m our resident ahjumma; I’m also a horror cinephile, picky foodie, and cat lover.
I got into kdramas and kpop in the most random way possible! Back in 2010 (I wrongly said 2012 on the pod), I came across a Spanish cover of SS501’s “Because I’m Stupid” MV, which surprisingly still exists! This song is of course from the OST to the one and only Boys over Flowers!
I was so curious about the drama from the scenes in the video that I just had to watch it! Once I did, my life was changed! I had to share it with anyone that would listen! And that’s how I sucked Benner and Valerie into it! I discovered kpop through the BOF OST, starting of course with SS501 and SHINEE. This led me to discover other SM artists like SNSD, f(x), and SUJU, and eventually the rest of the kpop world!
At first I wasn’t fully immersed into kpop or kdramas, only casually watched whatever was on YouTube or Netflix. It wasn’t until 2014 that I really dove into the kworld head-first with the help of Viki and Dramafever! Since then I’ve watched dozens of dramas and my kpop playlist has grown exponentially!
