For Like-minded Individuals with a Common Passion

The idea for K-Drama Banter came about after a group of like individuals motivated me to turn my passionate reviews of k-dramas into my own drama review blog. So, to that end, this k-drama review blog is where like-minded people can come together to share their love for S. Korean dramas in a kind and respectful manner.  All opinions, thoughts, theories, banter, and venting is welcome!

 Favorite South Korean Actor

You may be asking yourself who is and what's Jang Hyuk doing on a drama review blog, and the answer is simple he's my favorite S.K. actor, and there was no way I was going to do a blog and not feature him. He was born Jung Yong Joon, and is best known for his leading roles in Windstruck, The Slave Hunters, Tree with Deep Roots, Fated to Love You, Voice, and Money Flower. As a child, Jang Hyuk spent most of his life in his birthplace Busan before making his drama debut in the SBS drama Model in 1997. Jang has practiced Jeet Kune Do for more than ten years and is a former professional Taekwondo athlete.
