While we do get around to talking Bon Voyage 2, May Queen, Father is Strange, I Married an Anti-Fan, and the merits of watching idols sleeping, we talk our recent LA Ladies Weekend, upcoming holiday watching, and more!

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Sing Like Nobody’s Listening

Posted by SaraG on December 14, 2017

Music

I am really, really good at understanding accents. I always have been. I think it comes from watching Bollywood movies as a kid and taking a lot of math courses in college taught by international teaching assistants. Oh, and the twenty years of traveling the globe haven’t hurt either. But I am absolutely terrible at learning actual languages. I took Spanish from the 9th grade through graduate school and even passed my requisite language comprehension exam in order to graduate. Even then, I could barely put together a sentence. None of this stops me from singing along with Kpop loud and proud.

Musical Monday – Somehow It’s Already Happening

Posted by SaraG on December 11, 2017

Music

Question. When did mid-December 2017 happen? Who let this be a thing already? Because we traveled for Thanksgiving and I didn’t host my usual big meal with friends and family, it hardly feels like we’ve gotten through the fall and I am in no way ready for it to be almost Christmas. I’m a smidge behind on gift shopping for family, and I haven’t settled on what to do for my countless and ever-growing list of people I ‘HAVE to shop for because I feel compelled to.’ And now, the Kpop Christmas songs have started coming out and I’ve realized it truly is the season and I had better suck it up and decorate already.

Khottie of the Week: Kickass Girls Edition

Posted by Alix on December 10, 2017

Khottie of the Week

Last weekend LizC and I were at loose ends with SaraG and Stephanie living it up in LA so we gave it our best attempt at making them jealous by watching lots of MAMA performance videos followed by three episodes of Because this is My First Life over a large quantity of Korean takeout. We knew the drama would be good based on feedback we both had read, but I think we were both surprised by how it captivated us. I fell hard for the drama, not just because Lee Min Ki was the lead but more so because it featured three female actresses that were as beautiful as they were kickass. Read more

Show Notes

In this special episode, Molly in Kdramaland interviews the writers of her favorite fanfic, Infectious — Guster02 and TServo! Or, while Molly, SaraG, and Stephanie were all together in LA, we spent good portion of our time chatting Infectious, and we had so much fun we thought we’d record it. Molly asks us questions about our process, how we come up with our ideas and character insights — all while trying to wheedle out spoilers. We hope you enjoy!

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – 여기

Image result for HALO here I am

One of the most frequent words we used while in Korea was 여기. It was constant…mostly to cab drivers as they tried to get us as close as possible to one of our ‘off the main road’ Airbnbs. It was one of the first words I learned in Korean and it recently popped up in the app I’m using to expand my vocabulary. As soon as I heard it, memories of our trip crept into my mind and I felt all happy and sad at the same time. I love to travel, but it’ll be almost a year and a half before I can go on a big international trip again. That future trip is going to be back to South Korea to see some of the things we missed the first time around.

The word, 여기, also popped up…over and over and over again as part of today’s song…as I sat on the plane heading toward Denver after the weekend of blissful girl time and fabulous hip hop. In a song. In this song.

I did it! By the skin of my pearly whites I managed to win this round of NaNoWriMo. Not bad for starting 5 days behind everyone! Thank goodness for the Thanksgiving holiday which finally allowed me to creep ahead.  Read more

One of These Things Are Exactly Like the Other

Posted by Stephanie on December 6, 2017

General

Scrolling my way through news of upcoming dramas, I came across the obvious weep-porn The Most Beautiful Goodbye in the World, which is a remake of a previously popular drama of the same name. Looking at the synopsis, I’m left saying…this seems awfully familiar.

And I never even heard of the original.  Read more

Musical Monday – Expectations

Posted by SaraG on December 4, 2017

Music

I have been to a lot of concerts in my day. I mean a ridiculous amount. One important lesson I’ve learned is that you can’t really go into the important ones with lots of expectations. If you think you’re going to have the night of your life, you will be disappointed. No one, not even your bias group can live up to that kind of pressure. But to be entirely honest, having no expectations when you’re going to see one of your strongest contenders for UB with two of the coolest kids in your Kpop circle, is nearly impossible. Read more
