Podcast Episode 33: Korean Pie and Kdrama Cheats

Posted by Cherry Cordial on September 4, 2015



No sickness, no schedules, no technical difficulties will keep us from our podcasting path! And trust me—they all took their turns trying to thwart us this week. In this episode, Cherry manages to drag Stephanie’s secret watching out of her, they talk about how hard it can be watching friends watch Kdrama for the first time, we squee over Jackson and Junsu, chat some news, and then round it off talking about using spoilers or even skipping ahead to cheat-watch dramas.

Stephanie would like to apologize to the following
  • Jacqueline, for totally spilling the beans on our big drama watching adventure.
  • Late Night Diner, for saying you are boring, you’re not, you’re just… slow moving.
  • The Japanese language, for butchering you yet again.
  • To Jodi Picoult, yes, she cheats and reads the last few pages of your books in the bookshop. Not sure if this requires a full on apology, but it does seem like an ass-hatty thing to do.
Thanks for listening! See you next time.

    I had to drop everything (which in my case was wrapping presents for a child’s birthday party) to resend this comment that “Boring Gay Japanese Drama” was indeed so dull that I didn’t list it as watched on MDL and so I no longer remember its name. So dull, that I couldn’t even find it mentioned in the past comment. So slow that I couldn’t even find it mentioned in the show notes for your podcast. It must be out there somewhere but – who knows. Good luck ladies in finding funnier, racier or more memorable fare.

    The Boring Gay Japanese Drama was made for fujoshi that have read the yaoi manga I think. LOL It’s by one of my favorite mangaka. The drama leaves out ALL of the smexy bits but still managed to capture some of the relationship that made the manga interesting. Not my favorite BL drama. But I did watch it twice so…. I wish there were more BL dramas out there.

    Oops I forgot – the English title is – ‘No Touching At All’

    Really? That was really it’s name? I thought it was “I’m stretching out the sleeve of this sweater adorably while I’m trying to decide if I should date or live miserably on my own.”

    I went down the Love Sick rabbit hole this past weekend. I read the book and then watched the series. I’m even watching Season 2 without subs. I was waiting like crazy this weekend for eps 28 & 29. I do prefer the book but think they cast so well I can forgive the PPL they saddle them with and the endless flashbacks! Based on your conversations I’ve FF through all the girl scenes and most of the scenes without Phun and Noh. Maybe 3rd time through I’ll watch them, but this time I just want to focus on our cuties. It also made some episodes only 10 minutes long. Which makes the 20 episodes I watched on Saturday more understandable!
