Drama Korea (Korean Drama)

Drama Korea (Korean Drama) mungkin identik dengan sinetron dalam bahasa Indonesia atau opera sabun (soap opera) dalam bahasa Inggris ataupun telenovela dalam bahasa Spanyol. Peminat drama Korea cukup banyak khususnya di negara-negara Asia seperti Indonesia. Hal ini mungkin dikarenakan para pemainnya yang memiliki muka rupawan, hehehe..  Tidak dipungkiri bahwa penonton masih cenderung menikmati keindahan fisik dari pada unsur-unsur seni sesungguhnya seperti alur cerita, akting hingga nilai moral. Selain itu, menurut saya durasinya yang tidak terlalu lama jika dibandingkan dengan soap opera atau telenovela karena biasanya drama Korea hanya memiliki puluhan episode juga menjadi salah satu faktor yang menjadikannya disukai penonton. I think it is a compact drama. 

Berikut beberapa drama Korea yang sempat populer di negaranya sendiri hingga di Indonesia.

Synopsis
Left alone on a trip to Hong Kong, Tomoko (Fukada Kyoko) finds herself the victim of a purse-snatching. The police arrest the man she points out, but it turns out to be the wrong person: a young Korean man named Ji Hoon (Won Bin). Despite his anger and humiliation, he takes her out to dinner since she has lost all her money, and in return, she agrees to model for his amateur film. What follows is a magical and romantic two days. Upon returning to their respective countries, Tomoko must return to her nine-to-five job and Ji Hoon must resume studying to join the family business rather than pursuing his dream of becoming a film director. But soon the two begin to email each other and rekindle their relationship despite the distance and obstacles between them.
