Our Korean obsession wont be complete without watching Korean-based TV shows. But.. Aigoo! Some of us don’t speak Korean and it can be a problem. My comprehension is limited only to the phrases and words I picked from watching subtitled K Dramas.

Thank goodness I found Asia’s Heartbeat Arirang. Arirang TV/Radio is a public service with focus on audience members like me who likes Korean culture but does not speak the language! Now, I can understand them because they are in English!’

I used to be a Directv customer and that’s where I discovered Arirang.

Another option is of course, YouTube.  Here’s an example of my favorite TV shows on Arirang.

My Little Kitchen – One of my favorite cooking shows. I love this show! Simple, short and sweet! Does the chef look familiar? Sure he does! His name is Fabien Corbineau. Also known as Fabien. He speaks French, English and Korean fluently. He has a cameo role in “High School Love On” episode 3 and many other K dramas. He makes Korean cooking look easy and enjoyable!
