Can you count in Korean the number of Dramas you’ve seen?

I sort of learned the first ten numbers in Korean, but I still count on my fingers.  My goal before June 11th class of KDA (Korean Digital Academy, Rob Julien’s online class I am taking) is to actually be able to rattle off a long number.

You would think that years of Taekwondo 태권도 would have drilled the native Korean system into my head.  It is like I know a word “하나 둘 셋 넷 다섯 여섯 일곱 여덟 아홉 열” but if you said “Quick, tell me the word for 7”, out come the fingers.

I so have to break myself of this habit and commit the numbers to memory before I embarrass myself in conversation.

I am going to use dramas to help me.  You can make a game out of this by seeing if you can identify all of the dramas before looking at the answers at the end of the post.
