Podcast Episode 56: Kdrama Choices

Posted by Cherry Cordial on April 27, 2016



This episode, we have a last minute special guest, Amber Kmuse from Dramas With A Side of Kimchi, and we’re talking kdrama recommendations! (Actually, we’re also talking about what we’re watching, but since that’s a sad collection of odds and ends, it’s more talking about what we’re doing instead.) What dramas would you watch if you’re looking for a beta hero? And can we find a drama to recommend to Mrs. McFeeley if she gives us a list of American shows she likes?

Stephanie should apologize to the following
  • Answer Me 1988, it’s not you, it’s her.
  • Hogu’s Love, same.
  • Fans of either of those dramas.
  • Jami McFeeley, on the off chance you don’t like the drama we picked out for you.
  • Jami McFeely, for cheating and reading ahead.
Thanks for listening! See you next time.

    I also like the suggestion of Flower Boy Next door for Jami based on Gilmore Girls and Parks and Rec. I know that it’s an option for OKC (and I’m sooooo happy it’s winning in the polls right now) but would she like Healer? Yes, I suggest this one to everyone, but it’s my favorite and I fee like it really does have something for everybody.

    Amber KMuse, how did you get sorted into a drama? Was it your tumblr site or someone else’s? That sounds kind of fun!

      A person I follow on tumblr set it up. I know they are planning more drama exchanges in the future. Their tumblr handle is Jangeums
