Topic: Dramas and Movies
Summary: Upon this meeting, the five of us (Ester, Sarah, Lígia, Raphael and Isabela) decided what topic we would talk about: Dramas and Movies. We talked about the ones shown in the PDF file as well as some others that weren’t mentioned.
We soon started thinking of questions related to the topic and some that aren’t 100% related to it, but got us curious. It was a short meeting, since most of our schedules clash, but we were able to discuss the topic we chose and ask questions about it.
Ester: "I was really excited to talk about dramas, in recent years Korea has been recognized for its dramas where in each one we find at least a little of the culture and customs."
Isabela: "During this meeting we have discussed popular Korean dramas. Despite immersing myself in Korean culture for the past months, I had never had much interest in dramas. However, the discussion was very interesting, and it was fascinating to see what my peers and what the report sent to us by Sayul had to say!"
Lígia: "The first contact I had with Korean culture was through Dramas, so I was excited to discuss this topic. Korean Dramas and Movies are worldwide famous, and it's nice that we can see at least a little bit of Korean places, culture and history on these."
Raphael: "It was really fun to talk about dramas and movies. I could get to know about some interesting movies that I had not watched."
Sarah: "Even though I thought we weren’t going to be able to meet due to different schedules, we did and it was really fun! It’s nice to (finally) meet each other and talk about the topics we were given."
