About bishbash, aka kooriyuki

Just a thought…a drama related blog ain’t complete without the viewing history, and a brief introduction about the recapper. So here it is~

I’m not a Korean, but my interest in Korean dramas began from watching Sassy Girl Chun Hyang. I was a JDorama fan since young (Hoshi no Kinka and Ie Naki Ko were my favourites then), but now, I’m all Korean dramas, and I watch mostly JDoramas Mukai Osamu appeared in =X I spend my daytime in the laboratory, and currently am trying to finish my thesis, so recapping will be done only on weekends, sorry about that.

I don’t really understand Korean, but I can read Hangul. The languages I understand are English, Chinese and Japanese, so during recapping of Korean dramas, I rely on Chinese subtitles.
