Podcast Episode 19: Kdrama Take Down

Posted by Cherry Cordial on February 18, 2015



It’s no surprise what we’re talking about during this episode — the takedown of Crazy. We laugh (and I… possibly cry) our way through the pretty crappy events of the last week, trying to shed light on what happened. But more than what happened, we talk about what it means for the future, and, most importantly, what you can do to protect yourselves (for the love of Mike, back up your works!). If you don’t have time to check out the podcast, or if podcasts are not your thing, Cherry has done a ton of research, and there are all sorts of informative links in the notes below. And as a reward, after blogging class we do talk about dramas and then end on a “Who Would You!”

Show Notes

Stephanie pauses her current Junsu obsession to discuss the sad demise of the Crazy for Kdrama site. We talk what we know happened, what we think happened, and all the murky details in between. We cover what that means for the future of the podcast, and, most importantly, what bloggers out there can (and should) do to protect themselves. Finally, we move on to what we’re watching (listen for Stephanie butchering the name of a Japanese manga/movie), and then we finish up with a Valentine’s themed “Who Would You.”

Stephanie would like to apologize to the following
  • The movie, Doushitemo Furetakunai (and probably all Japanese speaking people), for hooorrrribly butchering the title.
  • Listeners — she promised herself she wasn’t going to cry! But there it was.
  • Junsu, for all those lascivious thoughts.
  • Listeners, again, for having to listen to all her lascivious Junsu thoughts.
  • GDragon, she’s sure you’re lovely. (But she still doesn’t want to hang out with you.)

    Welcome back! Very entertaining and informative! And I’m most happy to hear you both and especially Stephanie… Thanks for all the “back up your work” whispers from you coz I have been doing it but was a bit lost. I will certainly DM Cherry on FB just to get assurance that what I did is right. Thank you, chingu!

      Thanks for listening Chickadee! And absolutely ask for help if you need it. We’re happy to help. And when I say we I mean Cherry as she’s waaaay better at it than I am–but heck–I’ll be willing to give it a try for you anyway!

    Yes, we could tell it was an emotional episode but it was still so fun and entertaining. Thanks for all your hard work in the past and onward into the future. As a result of listening, I went and watched Doushitemo Furetakunai and while it may have some cute guys and some real relationship discussion – IMHO it was the dullest BL movie I’d ever seen. So, I popped over to Love Sick for some more cheery guy relationships. I love Noh’s relationship with his mom. When he tells Phun that he’s high maintenance, he knows what he’s talking about!

      LAUGH! Turns out it could have been called The Episode Where Stephanie Tries Really Hard Not To Cry. Luckily I’m naturally more of a laugh-er. Thank you so much for listening!

      Yeah, Doushitemo Furetakunai (let along try and say it outloud I can barely type it) is fairly boring–but they end up together! And after watching so many others where they either end up dead, maimed, or otherwise not together, I’m okay with that (seriously, why so sad??). I’m glad you’re liking Love Sick! See? Those two had better end up together in the end–or Ima gonna be MAD! Have you tried the other movie I mentioned? I promise that one is cute and not boring. If you do let me know what you think. I’m probably going to do a full on review of it soon.

      And if you have any others I should see? Let me know!!

    Aww, at first I was really happy to hear you two laughing again. Then I couldn’t believe that this all probably happened because of some crazy coincidence with your blog name. And then I was disheartened to hear people got angry over the khottie battle because I thought of it as a fun gift you were giving us. Then I was sad to hear of the death of khotties. To be honest, (I can’t believe I’m typing this but) the khottie posts helped me get through morning sickness last year… and third trimester pregnancy insomnia… I’m kind of embarrassed but kind of not.. I know other websites have their own versions of khottie, but I found your comments and descriptions the funniest (so it wasn’t just about the choco abs, I swear!!) Anyway, RIP khotties! I’ll remember you fondly. Here’s to a new and more awesome website~~! Look forward to it! : )
