Korean Dramas - Expectations vs Reality

I guess you can say that I've watched a few Korean dramas during my lifetime. Okay, make that more than 100 or so. The thing about these dramas is that you get sucked into the story line and fall in love with the characters. They also mess with your head a bit and give you a false realization on life. For me, it was my love life.

Hey Unni - Monolid Talk

My older brother use to tease me a lot when I was younger. We always fought and I just never understood how we were related. That is one day when he told me I was adopted. He went on and on about how I was left in a dumpster and that my parents felt sorry for me and took me in. Obviously, this was completely false, but I was naive and believed him. 

Even though I knew he was lying, I started thinking about how I felt like I didn't look anything like my parents. Mainly because my eyes were monolids (no defined crease on the eyelids) and my mother had double eyelids. I started thinking about it more and more and started to believe what my brother was telling me. I remember running up to my mother, crying my eyes out, and telling her that I knew the truth. I brought up the fact that we didn't look alike and how we had different eyes.
