riding on the "hallyu" movement - the
globalization of Korean dramas (K-dramas).
Whether it's Singapore, Malaysia, Japan,
China or the U.S., viewers who watch Korean
dramas are enamored by the "real" acting and
fascinating stories that unfold before their
K-dramas are a refreshing change for many,
and some, like Winter Sonata, take them back
to first loves. Others like, Dae Jang
Geum, tell about history in a fascinating
way with rich costumes and realistic sets.
some viewers may find them too "mild" for
their taste, many others will be thrilled to
find tasteful, endearing programming that
reels them in and leaves them wanting
more...and more...and more....and then
they're hooked only to find that they are
part of the "hallyu" movement.
Buying Korean Dramas
If you are interested in buying Korean
dramas, be careful where you buy them.
Buying from eBay and other sites may be less
expensive, but as the saying goes "you get
what you pay for."
From personal experience, buying off of eBay
or other sites usually results in bootleg or
illegal copies of the dramas which results
in poor picture quality. Some bootleg
copies also have very poor English
subtitles, ranging from jibberish to
excessive foul language. The only site
we use and recommend, because of the
excellent quality of the DVDs and English
subtitles, is YesAsia.com. YesAsia.com is
the only authorized distributor of Korean
DVDs in North America.

This is a
drama of epic proportions that is based on the life of
Korea's (if not the world's) greatest Admiral, Yi Soon
Shin. He was responsible for defeating Japan in
the 1600's with incredible odds against him.
Watching Yi Soon Shin's military strategies are nothing
less than genius.
Good - This
show is one that brings out Korean National pride.
The drama is an excellent, but brutal at times, drama to
watch. Impressive fight scenes and excellent casting
make this a very good drama, especially for men - but also
