Have you heard of a sickness called K-Fever? No? If not, it's because I'm the one who named it K-fever...harharhar...
It is a common fever among youngsters nowadays especially among secondary school students, also those who just leave secondary school and also among working youths. I know because my cousins have these fever :p.
Other name for this fever that is commonly use by people is K-Wave...haa...that may sounds familiar right? I called it K-Fever because it gives some kind of addiction for these K-Wave thing...you know...also some more familiar expression is KPop or KDrama or whatever things that korean entertainment gives us...Well, it's a feeling of keep wanting to know the more songs, more dramas and personal details of some korean celebrities. Was it because of their look?? Maybe..but I myself don't really know why..haha. (actually, it is because of their look...sajer tak nak mengaku LOL!)
I started to have the symptom when I started following Boys Over Flower(BOF) drama on KBSW TV... It is a Korean version of Meteor Garden(Taiwan version) or Hana Yori Dango(Japanese version). I like the characters played by Lee Min Ho and Kim Hyun Joong (see! I memorized their name already! :p) in BOF.

Then, I got to know the Korean comedy TV show, Gag Concert in the same TV channel. In Malaysia, we have Konsert Lawak. They're not the same but the idea is quite the similar that is by having these comedy concert thingy. They are quite hilarious though. Some more, I began listening to Korean songs. There are a few songs that suit my ear...namely; G.Na - I'll back off so you can live better and recently 2NE1's Lonely really caught my attention.
Since my return to Bintulu, I have been exposed to unlimited fast speed internet (heheh..sblm ni guna limited slow speed broadband) which enables me to stream movies online and to add more, my very much 'free' time... Initially, I just want to have a quick look at one drama, Playful Kiss, played by Kim Hyun Joong since I had recognize him from BOF...but then, I got caught by his charm in the drama and find myself could not stop watching until the end of the 16 episodes. I finished watching all 16 episodes (an hour each episodes) in 4 days.

Then, I shared this new interest of mine with my cousins who already have the craze to K-Fever...although they're more crazy towards korean music and they're like~'yeah..hyun joong is handsome and sexy...especially in his Break Down MV'~ adding more crazeness towards my k-fever...but thankfully(huh? i guess...) I'm not really crazy like-totaly crazy towards k-pop thing... Maybe due to age factor..haha! (I'm not saying that I'm old okay...) - Most Korean celebrities who are recently creating this K-Wave thing are younger than my age...including the one that I adore (LOL!;p), Hyun Joong and Min Ho and some others like B2ST, Super Junior, SS401, Wonder Girls and Girls' Generation.
Anyhow, the K-Fever is simply due to their cute-and-macho-lookingness. Kudos to their catchy songs and beautiful dance moves. Do we (Malaysians or any country other than Korea) really know the lyrics and what they are singing about? Some people may took the inisiatives to learn korean language while others just mumble to whatever the song is...that is up to the individuals themselves. Credits should also be given to anime artiste that gives some ideas to the development of some korean dramas (same goes to japanese and taiwan drama)... All is well done. As for me, I will definitely continue watching and looking forward to the latest K-Dramas. Ah! of course... Don't forget to support local movies too ok? hehe..
Akhir kata(cewah).... enjoy this sexy MV by Kim Hyun Joong ♥ ♥ ♥...hehe :p
