What I mean by the title today is quite literal since I wanna share how it is I actually watch KDRAMAS. As in what kind of snacks do I like to have with me, what sites do I prefer, what my fave drama watching position is, oh and yeah also what specific platform do I usually like to watch them on. Basically I wanna cover all the basics. Like am I a watch them “on a TV” kind of guy or am I more of a “on a tablet” type of person, you know all that sorta jazz. Haha
Not sure what made me inspired to talk about such things exactly but hey here we are. Tis what it is I suppose. 😛 And if throughout you feel like you wanna share your own watching habits too then please by all means do so. Maybe we can compare and contrast our styles even. 😊 I know I could always use tips to enhance my own viewing experience.
And with that said my peeps let’s move onwards:
To start with, how about we go with the basics and focus on the streaming sites I use. I know there are many popular illegitimate ones for example I could name, but surprisingly I don’t use any of them…anymore. Ok so I wont lie and I will admit I did use sites like mysoju(not sure if that is still around) when I started, because really there weren’t any legal alternatives available back then. 😅 But since then luckily with time that’s changed, and because of this I do my best to support my Kdrama passion by using legitimate only sources now.
And if you are a Drama addict you will probs recognize my main two right of the bat, Viki and Dramafever. They are like the biggest ones in the game at the moment. Between them both you can just about get all the big name dramas out there. So if you are recently looking to jump into the Kdrama world those two are a must. However early on if you don’t have any friends to get into them with you, you may have more fun on the Viki site cuz they have this thing called timed comments on there. That is were comments people leave show up while you are watching the drama. Gives you that feeling you aren’t watching a lone which could be nice.
I’m just saying that one specially could add a new layer of fun for all the newbies out there. 🙂
Ok moving on to my fave watching position. I wanna talk about this because I feel mine is more out there than most. We all know the more traditional ones like sitting down in standard position, laying on the bed propped up, or laying on the floor belly down right? Well for me I like laying on the couch with my legs perched at the top looking like I’m gonna fall right off. lol To get a basic idea here is the closest picture I could find to what I normally look like. 😛 Not a 100% but you get the gist right?Embed from Getty Images
I know some of you must be thinking how can you even watch tv like that. However that’s the thing… I don’t watch dramas on my TV and that gets us right along to the next thing.
You see I looove to watch Kdramas and Kmovies on my phone. 😮 Surprising? Yeah i can see how it would be cuz I know a lot of peeps would much rather watch on a big screen, let a lone on the tiny screen on your phones. But what can I tell you, for me it’s the best when I can turn off the lights, blast the sound through my head phones, and have the drama playing right in the palm of my hands. It’s the best way to get me to zone everything out and instead put my sole focus on the drama itself. 🙂
In fact this shizz works so good I’ve had days where I’ll start watching something late at night and before I know it, I look out the window and see it’s getting brighter. Seriously it has happened waay more times than it should. And poor ol’ me has to go straight to the kitchen to prepare something for myself as there is no more time for sleep anymore. It’s not an everyday occurrence luckily but I definitely need to work on it. 😛
4. What Snacks?
Lastly we get to the most important part, the snacks! Lol I go to the movies all the time and part of the watching experience there is eating something and you know what I think that is what has influenced me at home. Because drama or no drama if I am watching something I need to be snackin’ on something too. Although at home I’m not a fan of popcorn because I don’t wanna be picking up all the crumbs off the floor after. lol Which is why I think Ice cream is the best! Yay for Ice cream Woot Woot!
Honestly almost any kind will do and satisfy me, but my faves without a doubt are ‘chocolate swirl” and “cookies and cream” with the emphasis on “COOKIES AND CREAM.” I swear there is nothing in life sweeter than having a nice blanket on top while eating ice cream and watching a good drama. 😀 No matter what weird and wacky position you choose. 😛
So yup that is overall how I watch my dramas. Now how about you? ^_____^ Like always feel free to share.
