80. TLY – Start-Up | Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol | 18 Again

Anisa and Paroma chat about Start-Up, the first twelve episodes of Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol (i.e. before that disastrous, bafflingly bad ending), and 18 Again. We also gush over Avatar: The Last Airbender, which Anisa finally watched—and loved, obviously—only fifteen years late. https://soundcloud.com/akdramapodcast/80-tly-start-up-do-do-sol-sol-la-la-sol-18-again Time Stamps: 03:33 Start-Up10:02 Do Do Sol Sol La… Continue reading 80.

Yes, that one, which you've… Continue reading Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol: Episodes 5-6 Review

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
