Hi, I’m heisui.
I first made My Drama Tea on a whim in 2011. The name of my blog is just something I randomly thought of off the top of my head, but later on I made the connection between tea and dramas because, guess what, both of them are addicting. 😛 *lame attempt to relate the two together* My username, ‘heisui’ was also created on a whim, and is based off of a Japanese word I randomly found in the dictionary. It means “calm water” (平水) and I meant for it to evoke a feeling of peacefulness. O_O”
I first started out drama blogging without much of a direction. I had vague aspirations to be like one of those ‘big 3′ drama blogs but eventually, I realized that that wasn’t really for me. I realized I wanted to write more about lesser known dramas rather than writing about all the super popular dramas. I didn’t want to contribute to the chatter about dramas that already had enough people talking about them, but rather, I wanted to talk about the ones that were rarely being discussed. I feel that there are already plenty of kdrama bloggers out there, so I tend to focus on a variety Japanese, Chinese, and Taiwanese dramas instead.
I also have very personal motivations in drama blogging. It is a great form of stress-relief for me; just blogging will let me relax and take my mind off of other things. It is also a personal endeavor, to be able to think more critically about the stories and characters that I watch. Writing about dramas forces me to analyze them more closely and to try to understand the meaning behind the stories & the reasons for characters’ actions.
Where can you read more about me?
I tend to keep most of my blog posts drama-related. But you can find random posts more about my personal thoughts in my “Heisui’s Thoughts” section.
