An engaging virtual Korean escapade by KTO called ‘KXperience‘ is underway which comprises of ‘all things Korean’ – K-Food, K-Pop, K-Beauty, K-Drama, and K-Travel. For the K-Drama aspect of the event, KTO has collaborated with the reputable Indian media organization, The Hindu on a K-Drama Talk Studio.
For this part of the series, KTO x The Hindu called upon various specialized Indian experts from different fields who talked about their favorite K-Dramas and elaborated on several elements that make K-Dramas so appealing. It started with Chef Dhruv Oberoi who talked of the mouth-watering K-Food appearances we see in the Korean dramas and even shared a Korean Fried Chicken recipe that he liked. The talk studio session then moved on to other features like Ms. Nishant Fatima (Hyderabad-based photographer-writer) who talked of trend-setting fashion in K-Dramas, Ms. Annalia Zhimoni (makeup artist) who demonstrated how to apply Korean eye makeup, Ms. Puja Talwar of Good Times who acted as the moderator, and Ms. Anu Menon (Comedian-Actor) who enthusiastically spoke about everything, all K-Drama watchers feel in their hearts!
“If you are not Korean, I don’t need your drama.” – quoted Chef Dhruv Oberoi humorously.
Attendees of this relatable and colorful talk session would definitely be getting a glimpse into the mutual love for K-Dramas that all of them have; thus achieving the aim of KTO – spread the love and support for the Hallyu wave in India.
