Behind my drama blog name!

Blog Name:
I have thought about the reason why I named my blog HK-KDrama Island. I remember those times when I was good friends with some tvb fans and bloggers and some DramaFever fans and thought of an idea of merging tvb fans with kdrama fans. Also, I thought of the word Island when DramaFever asked fans a question “If you were to bring a kdrama to an island, which drama would it be?”. So there you go the name HK-KDRAMA Island and also because I am a Vietnamese American and neither Chinese or Korean and I wanted to blog asian dramas overall! I like to focus on a variety of things instead of one subject. It’s just my personality liking a lot of things. My parents tell me that I’m half influenced by asians and american media. I like them both. I used to rant with you tvb fans how some Chinese didn’t like me because I was Vietnamese. A wuxia fan who is chinese did bash me for watching wuxia series without reading the novels. A white girl who likes wuxia series did tell me “Since they bash you, they would probably bash me even harder for not being asian”. Yeah there were some non asians who watches wuxia but told me they are still learning from me. There was a British Producer who used to favorite my tweets about wuxia. Some chinese wuxia fans also bashes other wuxia fans who are chinese thinking they are too Americanized for them. But there were many tvb fans and bloggers who accepted me. I appreciated well loved tvb and wuxia bloggers who are HK Chinese: SPCNET, A Virtual Voyage, KTVB, and TVB News World for being my blogger friends though I’ve never thought I would be! And also some tvb bloggers told me that though they are chinese, they also watch tvb series in eng sub but that doesn’t make them less chinese or inferior. And a chinese fan told me he was surprised and it seems I watch more tvb series than he does. He said he didn’t get offended by me knowing more about tvb series. Some tvb fans did called me a “TVB Guru, probably the best, and the right person to talk about tvb series”. So I am one of the few Vietnamese Americans who blogs about tvb series besides TVB Musing (MetalAznWarrior), Lynne from TVB Horizon, and also Ted from TVB A Way of Thinking who I also chat with. I created this drama blog to keep memories of tvb series and wuxia which I’m worried they will be extinct in the future and also because there are lack of drama blogs that cover hk dramas. Yeah after I blog about wuxia series, other kdrama fans and bloggers started to know some tvb bloggers from me and started to watch some wuxia series.

My background:

My father is Vietnamese and my bother is half Chinese and half Vietnamese. I am a quarter chinese and 3/4 Vietnamese. I grew up watching a lot of wuxia series and tvb series thanks to my parents in viet dubbed because they wanted me to know more Vietnamese. I can speak Vietnamese fluently but can’t read nor write. My grandma used to buy me Haw Flake, Chan Pei Mui, and Salted Dried Plum. My father used to buy Beef Jerky. My father likes martial arts series while my mom likes modern dramas. It was funny when my aunt talk about me “That’s why she likes King of Snooker so much because it’s a comedy”. I rarely watch Fantasy Series with lots of CGI because my parents don’t like that genre. My aunt likes the genre and introduced me to Journey to the West and God of Honour. Yeah I like wuxia series but I also like other genre such as cops, comedies, and romance.

There was a time where I brought some tvb series in one of my classes in school for a school project cause I wanted my classmate and teacher knows there are good looking asians out there. I didn’t feel American Media portrayed many good looking asians. I was a wuxia and tvb addict since I was a child, it’s just stuff that I was born to like. And even eventually I created my drama blog because I love asian media so much!

Escape from Reality:

Fangirling Moments:

If there was a wuxia series I would recommend: I would recommend TVB The Four, it has handsome asian guys.

Chilam Cheung and Gigi Lai in Shades of Truth!

Chen Kun and Li Bing Bing in Sword of Outlaw

Another reason I recap asian dramas because it relieved me from stress. It’s just my own personal space where I feel I belong to.

Bewared of Divide and Conquer in Asian Community

As asians are familiar with these statement by white trolls to divide asian men and women and happy seeing them fight each other. White trolls are white men with yellow fever who see asian women as sex objects. They get really triggered seeing asian men and asian women unite in asian community. Whenever they see asian men bashing asian women, they are happy and will take the chance to defend asian women and say they love them. But unfortunately, there are some bitchy asian women or hapas who self hate and will be submissive to those white trolls and have no asian pride. When there are white trolls pretending to be asian women on asian reddit. White trolls enjoy pretending to be an asian women or hapa to make asian men look bad. Here are some divide and conquer tactic white trolls will use on asians. (But some asian women will be gullible or self hate and side with white trolls).
Here are some quotes white trolls will use:

“That’s why asian women turn to whites” because asian men bash asian women.

“Toxic Masculinity Boys”. As you know trolls enjoy using this word to label asian men. Actually anyone who uses this word would be a suspect of a white troll and should be banned.

“I love asian women” Well that quote make white trolls look misogynistic when they see asian men and women fight each other. It’s not cool though submissive asian women will believe in it!

If you have other quotes that white trolls can use to divide asian men and women, you can state it!

I’ll list my opinion here how I view asian men on reddit. Yeah I do not agree with harassment or bashing of asian women and some can be extreme but there are some asian guys I enjoy supporting on there. Plus we are asians after all.
