18 Again: Episodes 13-14 Review

Saner and I are without our Saya today, because she’s off doing important and busy things, but we have plenty to say about the penultimate week of 18 Again between the two of us. We’ve got revelations, long-awaited conversations, and confessions galore. Much of it was lovely, but there were aspects that drove us to… Continue reading 18 Again: Episodes 13-14 Review

74. The Long Yak – 18 Again | Record of Youth | Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol

We're back with a Long Yak! We've decided to split our monthly yaks about what we've been watching (which were more like woolly mammoths, let's be real) so that we can get the episodes out to you more quickly and hopefully in a more manageable chunk for your ears! This episode we discuss ongoing shows… Continue reading 74. The Long Yak – 18 Again | Record of Youth | Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol

Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol: Episodes 5-6 Review

We're back with a bit more to say on Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol, surprisingly! After its opening weeks, I was convinced the drama would have a satisfying but predictable trajectory that I could sit back and enjoy, but then it hit us with that Episode 5 reveal. Yes, that one, which you've… Continue reading Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol: Episodes 5-6 Review

73. The Little Yak – Tale of the Nine Tailed

We enjoyed the first weeks of Tale of the Nine Tailed so much that we did a quick first impressions on instagram live (@dramasoverflowers_) last Sunday. Paroma (@festerfaster) was the host, and our guest was Rimi (@_payodhi on Twitter). The audio isn't the greatest, but we thought you may enjoy our glee at this fluffy and… Continue reading 73.

Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol: Episodes 1-4 Review

We’ll be doing these First Impressions reviews occasionally on the blog—not full weekly coverage, but just a review of Episodes 1-4 to get a sense of a drama’s story, tone, and direction. If you’ve been following us for a while, you’ll know that I will watch anything Lee Jae-wook does, so it’s probably no surprise… Continue reading Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol: Episodes 1-4 Review

72. What’s Up in Dramaland – Female-led Variety | October K-drama Premieres

In this What's Up in Dramaland, we cover a hopefully ongoing trend toward female-led variety shows, and some quick news hits. Then we dive into October K-drama premieres, including The Spies Who Loved Me, which we are both very confused by and DYING to see. https://soundcloud.com/akdramapodcast/72-female-led-variety-shows-october-premieres NEWS LINKS: On variety shows led by woman, the… Continue reading 72.

71. The Long Yak – Stranger 2 | It’s Okay to Not Be Okay | Flower of Evil | Oh My Venus

Hearty apologies for the long wait for this yak! Things have been very hectic for all of us as we've built up the blog, which has meant that although we were recording on schedule, editing these massive episodes hit a bit of a backlog.

Stranger 2: Episodes 15-16 Review

It's a tense and emotional finale week, as everything finally comes together, and Shi-mok and Yeo-jin are forced to directly face the ugliness they've uncovered--and which has been hidden close by all this time. They have to decide once again what they're willing to lose in their endless fight against the slow, hungry rot of… Continue reading Stranger 2: Episodes 15-16 Review
