TV Series Tag #13: Playful Kiss


Yep, we are going to South Korea this time! Any K-drama lover out there would agree that Playful Kiss is one of the best series ever! Getting to watch Korean as well as Filipino TV dramas made me appreciate different perspectives about love and life.

It tells the sweet cute story of two teens, Baek Seung-jo who is a smart and prim and proper boy and Oh Ha-ni, a clumsy and not so bright girl. Oh Ha-ni crushes heavily on Baek who at first acts as uninterested. But as fate would have it, they were meant to be.

This show as well as several K-Drama series I’ve seen shows how submissive the ladies become in pleasing the men they fall for. It changed my perspective on certain things.

  1. Where does the show rank on your favorites’ list?

Top 20.

  1. From 1-10, how obsessed are you?

I’ll rate myself a 10! I think I’ve watched it twice or thrice already and if I get the chance, I’ll do so all over again!

  1. How did you discover the show?

I wanted something to watch and I googled the best Korean series and it popped up. Thank you, Google!

  1. What was your initial thought of the show and did it change after watching it?

It was different from the usual drama series I’ve watched from the American side. The suspense is built steadily and keeps you wanting more at the end of each episode. The way they approach dating and relationships is quite different from the Western side. It was like discovering life on the other side of the planet.

  1. Why do you like the show?

It’s funny and so cute! Before you’d get to see the first kiss, the series is almost over unlike the American ones where the first kiss and hookup happens within the first five episodes. No bad language, no indecent exposure just pure entertainment.

  1. Who is your favorite character in the show?

Oh Ha-ni! She’s cute and adorable. She makes falling in love feel so pure and innocent!

  1. Least favorite character in the show?

Don’t have one.

  1. How would you kill off your favorite character?

I don’t know…I can’t.

  1. Who is your crush on the show?

Baek Seung-jo lol. He is sweet in his own unique way. Very caring and has a big heart. But the way Korean guys pull their ladies for a kiss, not…not…not.

  1. If you were to be a character, who would you choose?

Oh Ha-ni. She is a humble character who believes in love and wishes to be the best that she can be for herself and the one she loves.

  1. Favorite moment

Difficult to choose. Every time they spent together was memorable. Whether Baek was shouting at Oh or giving her a piggy back ride, they were cute.

  1. Do you follow the cast on Twitter?

No.

  1. Which of the characters would you like to meet?

Both Baek and Oh Ha-ni.

  1. If you could meet any of the actors, who would it be?

Oh Ha-ni (Jung So-min).

  1. What lesson(s) have you learnt from the show?

Love is a beautiful thing. When you love, love wholeheartedly and you will receive it back in same measure. You don’t have to be physical with each other to express your love. Companionship, support and presence is enough to convey one’s feelings.

I’m feeling so nostalgic right now! I need me some Baek and Oh Ha-ni moment to laugh my head off! If you’ve watched it, what was your favorite moment? If you haven’t and you love watching romantic dramas, Playful Kiss is definitely a must-watch.

  1. I’ve never even heard of it. I guess I don’t watch a lot of romantic shows, now that I think about it. What others do you like to watch?

    Ha! Finally, something I can relate with. I love Korean drama so much and I laughed at the part where you talked about how Korean guys pull their ladies for a kiss. I’ve always had a problem with that. 😂 But for real though, Korean dramas are so decent. I’m watching Boys Over Flowers again. This is my fourth time. 😂😂
