Of Korean Dramas and Intertwined Fates

Malaysians have definitely not been strangers to the Kdrama Wave that has swept the globe with engaging storytelling and swoon-worthy romances. For most of us kdrama fans, binging on kdramas is a way of life; gritting your teeth at despicable villains who threaten our protagonists, sighing out loud at a lover’s passionate confession, clicking “next episode” at the speed of light when the episode ends on a cliffhanger and then going “I regret nothing” when it’s suddenly five in the morning…

YouTube Channels That Are Fighting Misconceptions

“Hey guys, welcome to my channel! Don’t forget to like, share and subscribe!”
