Crazy For Kdrama Podcast Episode 23: Kdrama, Not Korean Soap Operas

15 Apr

We had a couple of issues this episode 1) our terrible moods and 2) some technical issues which made Cherry sound like a robot for a while. (If you’re wondering, no, this did not help the moods.) On the upside? We got a wee bit ranty — which is always fun.

Show Notes
In this episode we put our ranty hats on and talk about how delightful we think it is when people call Kdramas “Korean soap operas,” and if they can say it while rolling their eyes? Even better! (This is a lie, neither of these things are good.) We talk about what we’re watching and Stephanie lays a big surprise on Cherry Cordial, add on some newsy type stuff and a listener-question-inspired topic about the changes of Kdrama through history which we “Uhhh…” our way through, and you have the perfect recipe for an interesting podcast.

Hellz Yeah, Epik High Is Coming! epik high

Was my first thought. It’s no surprise here that I’m a giant Epik High fan and most especially a Tablo fan and the idea of being in the same room as them while they sing in my general direction? Total Kfan swoon. Even now, thinking of them give me a bit of goosebumps. (But that could be the optimistically opened window.)

So what puts a frownyface on this awesome news?  Continue reading

Musical Monday: Stephanie’s Kpoptastic Playlist Edition

2 Feb

Stephanies Kpoptastic playlistIf you don’t listen to the podcast (first off, why are you not? We’re delightful!) you missed my (again, delightful) story about how I’ve become friends with the Korean guy who works at the Korean market around the corner from my house (dude! I live in a place now that has a Korean vegetable market around the corner–sometimes it still blows my mind). Anyway this guy–who is probably one of the friendliest people I’ve met in all of my time here–only works there a couple of times a week and I’ve been trying to figure out a way to weasel my love of Korean whatnots into the conversation without me bursting out:


Ahem. I don’t think that’s something I can come back from. About a month ago, it finally happened. It started with an innocent comment about kimchi, and the flood gates were open. You watch Korean movies and TV? YES!!! I do! I love it! Since then whenever I pop in we have snippets of Korean centered conversation (it’s actually a super busy shop so it we can’t say much).

Musical Monday: The MAMA Edition

8 Dec


MAMA’s happened last week, and unlike last year, I did not wake up pre-dawn to live watch it. You shall not trick me again awards show! And looking at some of the videos, while they were interesting, not watching it live was not a super big deal.

I continue to love, love, love SeoTaiji, they did a mash up of some of his hits through the years and I’m kicking myself for still not picking up any of his albums. Maybe Santa will get them for me for Christmas 😉 Continue reading

Crazy For Kdrama Podcast Episode 11: Kdrama’s Second Season

22 Oct

Episode 11! I’m trying so hard to make these shorter — it’s possible I’m fighting a losing battle. I literally cut 45 minutes from this episode. What can I say, Cherry and I are chatty, chatty, chatty. I’m so excited to actually be able to contribute something to the ‘what we’re watching’ section — it’s possible the anticipated shame of announcing I hadn’t seen anything made me sit down and watch something. So, yay!

Did you know that I have this special power? Well, I do. I thought I’d share some of the tidbits I learned during my B1A4 concert.

B1A4 Road Trip Concert

6 Oct


I hate to say it guys–after all that hype, after all that anticipation, the B1A4 concert was pretty much a dud. I’m not sure what happened! Maybe they were just too tired or maybe they just can’t support a full concert. Oh well. Continue reading

Fun Friday: Anti Anxiety Medication

22 Aug

I’m feeling really stressed guys and I’m wondering just how long I can blame jett-lag for my irritation/random crankiness. So here is post of things which make me happy and will hopefully bring that real world stress level down.

It was just announced that Epik High is coming out with a new album ‘soon’.

Musical Monday: The B1A4 Edition

2 Aug

B1A4 2The last time Cherry Cordial and I were filming the podcast, she pushed pretty hard for our warm up song to be something, anything from B1A4, but I didn’t think I really liked anything by them, so she was overruled. (Not that I’m the boss of Cherry Cordial, she’s just very ‘cordial’ about compromising.) However, looking at it, I’m not entirely certain I gave them an honest chance. Continue reading
