This month, we have the return of the wooly mammoth! We’ve had more reasonably sized yaks lately, but we had a lot of dramas to talk about when we sat down to record this, so settle in for a long one. This yak is premiere-heavy—we discuss our first impressions of a LOT of shows, as… Continue reading 102. The Long Yak – Hospital Playlist 2 | Mad for Each Other | Imitation | So Not Worth It

In this belated preview of June K-drama premieres, we discuss what we're looking forward to this batch (spoiler alert - Paroma is SLIGHTLY anxious to see our merry band of doctor friends again). We also have some fun digressions on how the colors blue and green aren't always differentiated in Korean, and the Friends Reunion.… Continue reading 97.

In this Long Yak, Anisa & Paroma discuss why Anisa dropped Sisyphus, our love for Vincenzo despite the show's problematic morality, the poignancy of Hello, Me, and the 2017 gem Go Back Couple.

Hello dear listeners! We recorded this episode very soon after the recent shooting of eight people, six of whom were Asian, in the US state of Georgia.

Anisa and friends of the podcast refresh and Yunah talk about writer-director Lee Isaac Chung’s film Minari, starring Steven Yeun, Yoon Yeo-jung, and Han Yeri, as well as the precocious, adorable Alan S.

This Long Yak is the second we recorded in February, and we discuss The Uncanny Counter, Run On, and Live On.

And now for some real answers! This episode, Seo-hae and Tae-sul get to know each other beyond the superficial running-for-their-lives + adversarial banmal stage (yep, this is the one that stuck in my head, kind of like the first answer you write on the test paper). Unfortunately, I’m still not quite where I’d anticipated with this… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 5 Review
