Ready a plate of kimchi fries for your k-drama marathon
We’re spoilt, to the point of rotten when it comes to our demands of television programmes. Gone were the days of sitting in front of a bulky telly, flipping through channels for hours while grumbling at the offerings of boring news segments and unrealistic infomercials.
