Korean Delay

Posted by Stephanie on July 28, 2019

General

Hey Anyone looking for this week’s Korea post! This is Leadville. This is the place where Molly Brown’s husband made his fortune, enabling her to move onto her unsinkable self. This is also Leadville, a small town in Colorado about 10,000 feet above sea level and about 7000  feet above breathable air. This is Leadville, who laughs at T-Mobile’s attempts at cell phone reception and the place where LizC, Alix and Lucy and I spent the weekend. Unfortunately, as the air is thin and the hiking is a must, I didn’t get to the photo editing I needed to in order to post this week’s post. As this week’s post is about our first full day in Seoul, with visits to SMTown, Codex Mall, and an EPIC food tour through the back-alleys of Insadong, I want to take the time to do it right. We’ll be back next week. While you’re waiting you can look at some of these pics from Leadville!

 

Chottie of the Week: Yang Yang

Posted by Alix on July 27, 2019

Khottie of the Week

After hearing both Cherry and Stephanie talk about how much they love Love O2O on the podcast and knowing that Stephanie has rewatched it at least once, I decided to give it a go. I watched about two-thirds of the drama pretty quickly and then stalled out. It is very cute and the main couple is very cute, and I do intend to go back to it at some point but I did learn that the lead actor, Yang Yang, falls pretty high on Stephanie’s bias list. And because she has a lot going on right now, thought I would do her a favor and throw a lot of pictures of him her way. Read more

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – It’s Only Natural

Posted by SaraG on July 25, 2019

Music

I don’t know why I just love it. So there. 

I’m writing this on Monday…the Monday where I had to leave work in the middle of the day to get the kids from camp even though my husband promised that he would take care of it all week. The Monday where my one and only meeting was canceled because the star attendee got an ear infection on vacation. The Monday where after eating a single piece of popcorn, my crown broke and I spent the rest of the workday in the dentist’s chair getting a new one (thank God for my clever, same-day crown dentist). The same day where I wasn’t supposed to be in charge of making dinner but somehow it’s the next thing on my to-do list.

Every B-Lead Has His Day

Casting News

While I’m not going to say it’s one of my top 5 dramas, or even in my top 10 dramas, I have to say the Kdrama from years ago, When It’s At Night, is one I used to love. Now if I were counting my top 5 most rewatched dramas? Yep, it would definitely rank high in there. Hmmm…now that’s a post I should contemplate! Since then I have kept Mr. Lee Dong Gun on my radar, waiting for his next lead. Which…unfortunately, hasn’t really happened.

I refuse to consider Marry Him If You Dare.

He’s lingered in B-lead City, hung around in Important Sidecharacter Land, and took a quick jaunt to Villianville. Now? Chhooo-choooo! Next Stop Hero Junction! Read more

Musical Monday – Making the Mood

Posted by SaraG on July 22, 2019

Music

I am very protective of my music listening time. I don’t live alone, I spend an alarmingly large number of hours in meetings, and my commute is short so I don’t always get to throw on what I want when I want it, and as loud as I want. So when I have the chance to pop on some tunes I have to really think through what mood I’m in, what would make me happy or the right kind of sad, and who I’ve been neglecting recently that might float my boat. I am definitely one of those people that knows that the artists can feel when I haven’t been paying them enough attention.  Read more

Khottie of the Week: Hyun Bin

Posted by Alix on July 21, 2019

Khottie of the Week

I mentioned last week that MyDramaList maintains a list of the most popular shows and I was pleased (maybe pleased is not the right word) to discover that I’ve seen all but two of the shows on the list. One is The Heirs which I have no intention to watch anytime soon and the other was Secret Garden. Up until this point I haven’t seen any shows with body-swapping and wasn’t thrilled about it but I figured I might as well try and see almost all the most popular shows. Not only was the body-swapping not as cringy as expected (more confusing than anything) but it was my first show with Hyun Bin. Read more

Show Notes

Now that we have our 200 episodes out of the way, it’s time to really get down to business. Changing things up, shacking them around, trying new stuff…or we can talk about dramas and kpop? Creatures of habit says option b, so we’re talking about the dramas we’re watching, Stephanie displays her NCT 127 prowess (sorry Johnny), we discuss how idols with puppies might be the cure for all the worlds ills, before stopping off in the new blech in the Kdrama world and what that means for his currently airing drama.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – At a Price

Posted by SaraG on July 18, 2019

Music

Produce X 101 is 100% doing its job. I’ve learned a bunch of up and coming trainees who will make fabulous idols and I’ve grown increasingly attached to several already debuted idols that are on the show simply because their groups don’t get the attention they deserve or they didn’t make it for the long haul. Up10tion, MYTEEN, IN2IT, UNIQ, IM66, and, of course, Victon make up the heartbreaking list of those with reps on the show. These are all groups that I’m familiar with and follow – if not closely then with some modicum of interest – and it’s more than a little painful to see them struggling through this process after the huge amount of work they’ve already poured into their careers. They have so much on their shoulders as they forge ahead for their own careers and on behalf of their existing members and fandoms.
