Watch Kdramas for almost free!

How to save money when you are obsessed with Korean Dramas!

1. Watch the shows online.
 Imagine having all of your Kdramas like Faith, What Planet Are You From, and Strike Love right at your finger tips, without having to pay a hefty cable bill to watch them.
 By going onto your search engine and typing in "watch Kdramas" you will find many sites that will allow you to watch many TV shows. An amazing benifite to these sites is that many of them are free and allow you to watch entire shows in the comfort of your home. They even offer phone apps so you will never be without your favorite Kdrama!

2. The library.
If like me, you are also reading the manga or comic, or book that the show is based off of, buying the books online can set you back a lot of dough. The library, is a great option to getting all the books and magazines out there for little to no cost to you. Using the library couldn't be easier, just log into your account online, request titles and in a few days go and pick up your books and be in Kdrama heaven. 

3. Internet TV.
Using a gaming device, or a DVR device you can stream all your favorite dramas and movies to show on your big screen TV. There is a flat fee to pay for this wonderful technology  but it ends up being a fair trad since they offer little to no commercials and you can pause the shows and take a break and come back to right where you left off.

I started this blog mostly due to the fact that there isn't a lot out there about Kdramas for the US fans.
I am on the last episode of Boys over flowers, and have also started to read the comic, and watch the anime.
I may dig even deeper and watch the Japanese drama and the Chinese drama.
I'll be completely sick of the whole thing before long.
Thought I doubt it.

So I haven't been on here for awhile.
Sorry about that.

I made an offer to a client on a content site to write about Kdramas for them and so far, nothing.
I wrote to them about a few days ago, since it's the holidays, I'll give them a break.
They have a bunch of work and it's just sitting there because no one has seen or wants to write about kdramas.

I told them in my letter, that I would love to write them, but since I would have to sit and watch each show, on my Hulu or Netflix account, I would need to be paid more then the job asked for.
I asked for a somewhat high amount, due to the fact that there isn't a lot of information out there and no one was grabbing these orders for them.

I hope that they don't think I am being stingy but again there is not a lot of information for these shows and I am willing to work extra hard for them, if they would give me the chance!

I am really excited about possibly getting a private client out of my obsession with kdramas.

Well, I guess we'll see how it goes.

Starting this blog has been pretty easy, I've just been chicken to write on here and let others see this.

I'm going to do other things with this blog besides talking about Kdramas.

I will also talk about writing gigs, and bargains, coupons, and working from home.

The lump loves the worry inside the resident food.

strike love

“Strike Love” episode 1.
Based off a 2009, comic series titled, Alien baseball Team. The word, “Alien” refers to one who is an outsider, a riff raff, not an entity from another galaxy.
The show has 16 episodes and stars, Tae Yeong Yun as Hey-Seong-oh, Kim-min Jung as Eom-ji-choi, Park Seong-min as Dong tak ma, Song-ah-yeong as Heyon-ji choi, anad Im-Heyon-Seong as Doo-San Baek.

Inside a baseball stadium, a game is played by a new and talented pitcher, Hey-Seong-oh. His pitches are so fast; players can’t even see the ball as it goes magically into the mitt of the catcher’s glove. Hey-Seong-oh, is playing an amazing game, and the crowed shows their devotion by beating their Thunder Sticks and chanting his name.
Outside of the stadium, the same ball game is displayed on a big screen and has drawn a crowd; there is a young woman with a bag watching it with personal interest.
In a restaurant further away, a young server catches the same game at work on a laptop, her enthusiasm causes another co-worker to take interest in the sport.
Back at the game, the star pitcher, Hey-Seong-oh is throwing strike, after strike, it seems this player is made of steel. In his mind, there are flash backs to someone skipping stones in a peaceful place.
At the restaurant, it is revealed that the girl watching the game might know the player. The girl with the laptop has seen something in the pitcher’s face, “he is in pain? How can he play, with such discomfort?” Her co-worker brushes off her concern and points out that the pitcher is playing the best game of his life.
The other girl, who watched the game outside, remembers that she has a job and rushes to the clothing store and finds her friend watching the game on a portable TV. Her friend teases her for not going to the game and supporting the player who is coming up to bat, “if you were there, I bet he would do much better.” The girl says that she and the batter are good friends, but her eyes are on the pitcher’s mound, it seems this girl knows the man pitching as well.
The next scene is the pitcher in the bathroom gasping from visible pain. With agony, he barely gets the words out saying, “just a little longer.”
On the mound, Hey-Seong-oh, sees the next batter is none other than, Dong tak ma, Yoosung Dynamic’s star batter. Hey-Seong-oh, hears his fans cheer him on, he tries to focus as he winches in pain and his vision blurs. He steadies himself, and with Herculean effort, the ball leaves his fingers, the bat swings as it miss and lands in the catcher’s glove, strike one!
As the pitcher prepares to throw, the girl in the restaurant whispers to the man on the screen, “stop it!” As tears roll down her face.
At the game, the pitcher is covered with sweat. Hey-Seong-oh’s pain is now obvious to others, his effort and determination is costing him physically, yet he won’t stop. The pain has not clouded his mind; it calls out one name, “Eom-ji”. With that name the ball leaves his fingers again, we watch the ball sail through the air and fly over a body of water, it lands in the hand of a child playing baseball in a lot. The ball is thrown and lands at another boy’s feet. The other kids ask for their ball back, instead he runs away and takes the ball with him. Turns out it’s the pitcher as a young boy, we are going back to his youth, and how he was involved with a gang of kids who stole from people for a small profit.
