Crazy For Kdrama Podcast Episode 21: Holy Holograms, Kdrama!

18 Mar

Woot! We thought for sure this episode was going to be a day late because we were really late in recording it. But thanks to the speedup button (yes, I listen to us in chipmunk voices while editing) I was able to get it edited in record time. [Cherry: Go, Stephanie, with your awesome editing skillz!]

In today’s episode, we talk about changing the way we watch Kdrama and vow to start simulcasting more by looking through a lot of the upcoming dramas, we squeee about random kpop news, and wonder who would pay to watch a hologram GDragon. Meandering, we brush on body size in Korean entertainment and the possible end of our love of Roommate.

Operation Kdrama Chat Show Poll

8 Mar

OKC Group Header FINAL

YAY! Kimura Takuya won the theme poll! I hate to say it but I was surprised to see how many Kimura fans there were out there. Not sure why, but I thought he was my own personal Japanese bias. But alas, I am just one of many. And for those of you who don’t know who he is, you can take this opportunity to also become one of the fangirls….

Come on in…follow us…you know you want to!

But after his clear win came the hard part–which of his arm-length long backlist should we choose from? As I was the most knowledgeable among the group of admins, I feel like I had a great responsibility. A great weight upon my shoulders if you would. To choose ones that are not only good, but show off our Kimura to his best light, but which also had some interesting things to talk about. (Like Engine, Good Luck, or that one where he makes furniture, lovely to watch, but not much to talk about.) But on the other hand there are a bunch of his that are very good but can be a little controversial or–triggery? Good on you for taking challenging roles, but I worry about turning people away. So it’s a delicate balance.

So, after much discussion or, “Whatever, that’s fine” we settled on something from every incarnation of Kimura Takuya. Here’s our list:  Continue reading

4 Mar

It’s the twentieth episode! Let’s party like it’s Episode One — you know, except for the fact that we were horribly nervous Episode One and now we are a slick podcast-making machine! Well, maybe not, but we still have fun.

For this episode, we talk about Junsu (Yes again! What can we say, his MV was released, and it is epic — how could we resist?), we squee about Stephanie’s newfound love of Roommate (well, we both squee, and Cherry rocks the ‘I told you so’), we answer a listener question regarding the sister to the sequel and spin off, the remake, then finally, we discuss the troubling news from the big three kdrama broadcasters and what that means for the future of Kdrama.

Kimura Takuya: Revisited

1 May

A while back, my attention was temporarily diverted from Kdrama and I was swept into the land of the Jdrama. Or I should say, pulled in by a certain actor named Kimura Takuya. After watching him in the drama Pride, I was hooked, and I vowed here to watch everything of his that I could get my hands on. Of course, with my squirrel like attention span, I didn’t quite make it. Partly because I ran out of interest (not because the shows were bad, I just don’t have staying power–it’s why I can’t watch American TV either) and partly because there are just so many of them! Here’s a list of the dramas I made it through and, briefly, my thoughts on each.

Long Vacation
Honestly, I didn’t get much past the first episode on this one. I hated the heroine so much, and when she forced her way to live with the hero, I just couldn’t take it anymore and moved along. Sorry, not even the young Kimura Takyua and his lovely long hair could make me continue with this.
