Hi! I’m Svan Nathan. I’m so happy to see you here! Writing is something that I love doing, and I’m delighted that you’re here to share it with me!
My favourite hobbies are reading books, gardening and watching Asian dramas. My perfect idle time is with a cup of coffee and a book, or watching my favourite dramas.
Korean dramas have become a rage all over the world, but I started my journey with them in 2018. I initially started watching Chinese and Korean dramas. The more I watched, the more I fell in love with them, and soon, I started watching dramas in other languages as well. Now, as an avid fan, I watch Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese and Thai dramas in various genres.
I’m also blessed to have a group of close friends who share my love for Asian dramas, particularly Korean and Chinese dramas. They would always appreciate and encourage me when I posted reviews of dramas in our private group. Because I love this so much, I decided to share it with others as well.
I hope that you enjoy my reviews. Please feel free to write comments and give feedback. You can also give suggestions for dramas, for me to watch and write about. I would love to hear from you!
How I got started…
My Favourite Actor
The first drama that I watched starring Park Seo Joon was What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim. I was so impressed with his looks and performance, that I followed up with several of his other dramas. I continue to be impressed with him for the versatility of roles and genres, and his physical transformations for each of his projects.
My First Asian Drama
I stumbled upon Meteor Garden by accident. It was showing up on all my feeds, and I decided to give it a shot. I never expected to be so mesmerized and entertained by the drama, though I had to read subtitles all along. The cast were cute and talented, the story was strangely appealing and funny, and, I was hooked.
These Asian dramas opened up a whole new window into the culture and lifestyle of Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Taiwanese and Thai people for me. I was fascinated by their beauty, lifestyle, education system, talent, infrastructure, food, society, music and dance, dating norms and wedding customs. Growing up on a steady diet of Jackie Chan movies in childhood, this revelation into modern Asian society was captivating.
