This past weekend, I was excited to be able to cross another destination off my ever growing Korea Bucket List: Namiseom. This gorgeous, half moon shaped island has always looked appealing with its famous tree-lined paths and photogenic surroundings, so some fellow English teachers and I took full advantage of its proximity to Seoul and took an excellent day trip to the island!

When I think about dramas back home, daytime shows like Days of Our Lives or The Young and the Restless come to mind. These are shows that have been running for ages and haven’t really cultivated the audiences that primetime shows have been able to garner. However, in Korea, drama is a different story entirely. K-Dramas are not only hugely popular within Korea, but also growing in notoriety globally. If you want to take in some popular culture in preparation for teaching English in Korea, there’s no more fun or relevant way than through watching a drama series.
