Korean Series: An Escape to Fantasy

On our first date…

I believe our first date was the day he invited me to have Korean soup after seeing the movie, but he said our first date was the first time we went out for dinner after we opened our hearts. So the day I thought it was our first date, I was very nervous. I don’t know if my secret love is mutual. I want to see if he responds to my “hint”. I’m trying to impress him. impression . My soup is seafood sundubu which means it has a whole shrimp in it. I usually peel the shrimp to eat with my hands, but I’m not sure if this is the “correct” way to eat Korean soup. So, since I don’t want to be “weird”, I decided to leave the shrimp alone and put it in the doggy bag with the leftovers…

In the first few months that I was dating, my deal breaker was…

There really are no deal breakers, we waited a long time to be together, and when we started dating we knew it very well. My crush is so strong I think the only thing that could break the deal is to find out he’s either a drug addict (haha) or there’s another girl next to me

When I knew he was good for me…

In 2015, we went to his parents’ house for Thanksgiving, he was driving and his cell phone was connected to the car’s music system, so he asked me to pick some music. As I scrolled through the music on his phone, I realized that he is a fan of musicals. At that point, I felt I absolutely had to tell him how I felt (although I was still waiting for him to take the first step). We’ll be singing the Broadway musical for the rest of the trip. Later, over time, I discovered that we just have the same idea and purpose in life. We’re all clumsy and we all like the same food (I know it sounds crazy, but we’re all foodies haha). Aaron is One of the three people on Earth I think I can completely be myself (the other two being my mom and my best friend).

when he…

Mentioned that he is considering double eyelid surgery. Before I met him I didn’t even know this was what a man wanted. To me, he’s as handsome as he is. Usually, when I see pictures of men undergoing surgery, I prefer the “before” pictures. Even after many discussions I tried to convince him not to have surgery, he liked to laugh at me and convinced me that it would happen soon.

The three things I like about him are…

First of all, how much he cares about me…not just me, but everyone around him. Sure, this may sound mainstream, but Aaron is indeed the nicest person I know. Before I came to Los Angeles he hardly knew me, he was always able to answer all my questions about the school (trust me, there are many), he helped me find housing and let me connect with possible groups to join from UCLA. The amount of time he was willing to sacrifice for someone he barely knew made a deep impression on me. Later I realized it wasn’t just “me”. Aaron was always willing to help everyone and dedicate his time to everyone. people.

Second, I like that he is a good listener. Communication is very important in a long distance relationship. Aaron knows this. When I say there’s something I like or don’t like, I know he’ll remember it and take action… even the smallest thing. When we first started dating, I remembered how cute it was to be surprised to see him when we got to the airport. When I came to see him six months later, he was waiting for me with flowers and tea. too sweet.

Finally, I like his relaxed personality. I am a control freak and have to plan every little thing in my life. He is the exact opposite; he is a patient man who knows how to enjoy the present. Since I’ve been with him, I’ve realized that sometimes the most interesting events will eventually happen without you planning.

 

South Korean breakthrough:

Korean Drama, also known as Korean Drama or Korean Drama, is a Korean TV drama set in South Korea. Korean pop culture (also known as Hallyu/Halyu) and far-fetched plot twists made Korean dramas popular worldwide in the early 2000s.
