First things first I want to thank Tanya for her AWESOME suggestion! This is perfect timing because I’m totally on a Noona drama romance kick. I’m actually currently watching the number 5 drama on this list ☺
Yet, another reason why I couldn’t rank it any higher on the list than number 5. So far, it’s a fantastic drama I very much recommend, if you haven’t seen it of course. Dated, but not without its charm.
This list did indeed make very good sense to talk about now. You know, Noona romances aren’t just a Korean drama thing: it’s an Asian drama thing. And actually, some of my favorite Noona romance’s come from other countries, but that doesn’t stop me from loving my Korean Noona romances.
For instance, Gokusen is the first one I think of from Japan in part because it’s the first drama I ever watched. It made such an impression on me that I kept watching Asian dramas, and now I’m an Asian drama addict. There were some of the cutest guys in Japan that I had never seen before EVER, that to this day are still some of my favorite Japanese actors of all time. Talk about making a good first impression.
Another Japanese favorite of mine is My Queen, which is the one that was adapted from Japan to make Witch’s Romance.
Regardless I love going back and talking about these dramas because, I’m getting to be a Noona. Okay, I may not be a Noona quite yet, but sometimes it sure feels like it, especially now that my former college students are getting married. In addition, as someone who used to teach at a college, I would never really consider a younger guy. I personally always preferred dating older guys (aka Richard), but it doesn’t mean I don’t like to look at cute younger guyz and think ‘Aww he’s co cute!’
This list has two of my favorite guyz in their twenties: Sung Joon and Lee Jung Suk. And Gong Yoo too, but now he’s an oppa lol. But he was cute when he was younger.. shit, he’s still cute. Very cute.
Got a good recommendation for a Top 5 Friday theme? Drop a note below, on our Facebook page or in the comment section on this YouTube video. I’m always looking for fun, fresh ideas, and I may just pick yours and give you a shout out.
