These Are the Korean Dramas Richard Juan Wants You to Watch
We're, honestly, running out of Korean dramas to watch these days. So who do we run to when we feel this way? To our fellow K-fans, of course.
This is why when we got to talk to one of CocoTea Fresh Tea and Juice's brand ambassadors, Richard Juan, during their party at the SM North EDSA, we just had to ask this cutie (who happens to look a lot like Kim Soo Hyun) what his favorite K-Dramas are.
"I haven't really watched a lot of K-Dramas, but my favorite is My Love from the Star. I wanted to watch Legend of the Blue Sea for the longest time, but I've been waiting for it to finish kasi ayaw kong mabitin. So now that it's done, it's a good time to start watching. Goblin, of course, because it really is one of the best ones."
"But [I recommend] My Love from the Star because I'm really not the type who's into a lot of Asian novelas, but that's the one that I'd really recommend since it has everything. It has comedy, drama, and also some action."
Surprise! He loooves the same dramas as we do. But what we really got kilig about was when he revealed that he wanted to watch this one K-Drama that we're so crazy about.
"I really want to watch this one, the one that says, 'Do you like Messi?' It's Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, because I heard that it's very light and it's comedy, unlike Goblin and Legend of the Blue Sea. Very light daw ang comedy nito."
Thank you for the recos, Richard! We'll probably spend our weekends this month watching and re-watching them because we feel the same way about it as you do. ♥

We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
