The novelty of the feeling, like the first drop of dew on an untouched leaf, makes it special and unforgettable . No, no I am not here to discuss my love(?) life. It's only to introduce my first viewed Korean drama- the one and only Full House , the drama bewitched me and is one of my favorites till date.
As Full House was my first Korean drama I was not at all acquainted with Korean language, tradition and society while I was watching it . It took at least 2-3 times watching to fully understand it, because I was crazy to understand every little details. But the drama is worthy of it. So, many times I searched for episode recaps on net but found nothing to feed my hunger. Therefore, I am here to take the opportunity to talk about my first Korean drama and share my thoughts. It gives me the chance to live the pleasure moments once again with you all drama lovers. It is my first recapping so plz be patient with my excellent grip on English and try to feel my heart. AZA AZA FIGHTING.....
