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.

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.

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!

Kdrama Weekend?

28 Mar

rainy weekendRainy Weekend! Time to make some plans, but what to do, what to do? Nowadays I always feel so lame-o spending my weekends at home, but I think I can get away with it this time for a few reasons. 1) I did actually leave the house this week a couple of times once to go see Heathers the Musical with our good friend Thea and then again when I had a meeting in the city and coerced my boss to buy me Korean food. Luckily it  really wasn’t hard to do as he loves Korean food too.

And 2? It’s supposed to be cold and rainy all weekend.  Continue reading

Kdrama Gods Give-ith Again!

14 May

dangerous liasons

The God’s of Kdrama have been giving again! Surfing Nexflix scouring their pages for more new releases of the Korean persuasion and I scored–big time! Currently in their new releases they have last year’s HUGE hit The Thieves and Jang Dong Gun’s Chinese drama Dangerous Liaison.

I’m pretty sure that deserves a woot!
And, while this is extremely rumor based information, I read on a board that Viki is working on a channel for Roku, with a hopeful December release date. Um. Yeah–if turns out to be true–this will be the biggest get in all our requests. To have both DramaFever AND Viki on my Roku? A Kdrama fan’s wet dream. If I am able to get more information, of course I’ll share it here!

Then, surfing around DramaFever’s coming soon page, I saw that they are coming out with the TWDramas It Started With A Kiss and They Kissed Again. Yes, I was actually able to watch these last month with the help of Outside Seoul, but it will be nice to see it all in one pieces. I really enjoyed It Started With A Kiss and am super happy that DramaFever has chosen to pick up this really popular series.
Here’s our score card:
