Crazy For Kdrama Podcast Episode 22: Cozy, Cozy Kdrama

1 Apr

We had some fun this episode — or at least we laughed a lot. Although, how that’s different from any other episode? I’m not really sure.

Show Notes
In this episode we do lots of stuff, so just listen. Just kidding! After chatting about news, what we’re watching, and how Roommate has been letting us down of late, we answer Kdrama-related questions, which have us coming almost to blows over the epic question “Super Junior or Big Bang?” and wondering which Kdrama heroine we would most want to be. Then we move over to talking about comfort watches, dramas that are our go to’s if we are sick or just want to be cheered up.

Bigbang Is At It Again

31 Mar

bigbang2

If you are a BigBang fan like myself or more to the point you used to be a fan before they kept teasing again and again and again  (and again and again and again) about their ‘imminent’ comeback, you were all over the countdown clock YG had posted on their website counting down to the reveal of who was going to be their next release.

Rumors buzzed the boards. Was this finally the BigBang  announcement we have been waiting for? Or was YG just going to trick us again? We were like conspiracy theorists.

  • It’s coming out on April fools day, could this be a joke?
  • It’s probably just Ikon.
  • See? The countdown clock is a detonate on dynamite, so, when it gets to 0 what happens? A BigBang! It’s BigBang, we know it is!

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:

I LOVE KOREAN EVERYTHING!!!

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

mama2014

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

Musical Monday: The GD X Taeyang Edition

24 Nov

good boy

You guys go right ahead–check out the song–enjoy it even. Me? I am boycotting the song. I refuse to listen on principal. Why? I am very upset with the members of BigBang, any of their sub-groups, and in particular, their leader GD.

Why? Continue reading

My Hero, Molly Who Saved CNBlue

15 Aug
mollyIf you listen to the podcast, you’ve probably already listened to this story, but since podcasts are not everyone’s cup of tea, and this story is just so awesome, it’s coming in again. I’d like you to meet my friend Molly. Molly, is a superhero. Not kidding, a real life super hero who saved my whole concert experience.
Molly is a brand new addition to the kdrama/kpop world, and she has fallen hard. Super hard. From zero to addict in approximately 3 minutes. Molly is actually a friend of Cherry’s and when she learned we were going to KCON, it didn’t take much (or any) arm twisting to get her to agree to join us. In the days leading up to it, we were mostly excited for CNBLue, BTS, and then of course GDragon. But the main one we all agreed on was CNBlue as, I don’t know if you’re a fan of CNBlue, but here’s the thing, they are good on albums, but when you go to see them live, they take their songs and ROCK OUT. It’s almost like a completely different experience and is amazing.

Musical Monday: The Taeyang Edition

9 Jun

Screenshot 2014-06-08 at 3.32.43 PM

So Taeyang came out with his newest release last week and, while not a BigBang production, I guess it will just have to do. You know, until they *finally* come out with a new CD in the next couple of months.

Taeyang’s music always surprises me. I don’t expect him to be the ballad-er, the R&B guy that he is–you know–from the looks of him. As I’m not usually a big R&B fan, Taeyang’s music is not really my cup of tea–but with his last release and this one–I think his music is growing into something that I can enjoy. This song, while slower, is still powerful and I actually found myself watching through the whole thing (I usually don’t pass the 60 second mark on ballads). And before you ask, no, I didn’t continue watching this one because Taeyang is shirtless thorugh the whole thing. Come on–It’s Taeyang–it’s more weird when he does wear a shirt. Continue reading

Fun Friday: BigBang and Haha, Haha and BigBang

28 Mar

Haha BigBang 2Who needs a little Friday fun? I Do! I Do! Especially after the crap-ass week I’ve had. It’s Friday everyone–time to celebrate!

While looking for Monday’s Musical Monday, I came across a note in my excel sheet that was just a Youtube link. No name, no note, nothing. So I tried out the link and found this. Then proceeded to die with laughter. Continue reading

Friday Fun! BigBang & Kim Yuna

21 Feb
RedIn honor of Kim Yuna, or as she’s known in Korea, Queen Yuna’s silver medal win yesterday (or her being robbed of the gold depending on how you look at it) in figure skating, Thea found us a fun video.
Did you know Queen Yuna sings? Did you know she sang with BigBang? Can you believe how young BigBang looks in this? Oh how our boys have grown. I hope you have fun with the video and, if you are in the she was robbed of the gold medal, I hope it makes you feel just a little bit better.
