Been watching this again like third times already. I smiled, cried and of course laughed. I was so obsessed with this korean drama and I wanted to visit Korea (I wish!). I was so attracted to Ji Hoo (Kim Hyun Joong) who was my first korean crush. I watched this years ago and still not bored with this drama. I watched this through Youtube and also Epdrama.

I remember how I like Jumong before. Korean movies do have their styles as well. You might want to discuss as well with Indian movies. "3 Ediots", "My Name is Khan" and the likes which we can get good learning.

Motivational movies as well are good to discuss like "Pursuit of Happiness", "Remember the Titans", "Blind Side", "Ultimate Gift" and more.

Wish you all the best Jenn!
