So sorry for this very belated transcript! Kdramadaydreamer was her usual speedy self in typing it up, but I’ve been caught up in end-of-semester stuff at school, and it took me a really long time to edit and post, so it’s all on me. – Anisa
Paroma: Hey hey, drama heads! Welcome back to another episode of the Long Yak. The first month of 2019 is already gone, and so are several of the dramas that we’ve been watching in the last few months. We give you our closing thoughts on some of these dramas…and major spoiler warning for the ending of Alhambra – we couldn’t help ourselves. If you want to skip that, the time stamps are below. We also discuss ongoing dramas that have defied expectations and stayed interesting in the second half – hello Last Empress. Now, normally after currently airing and completed dramas we move onto to discussing upcoming shows, but we decided that this segment needs a new home. We have been planning a monthly series called What’s Up in Dramaland for a while now, and because of the support of a few awesome patrons, we are finally starting to feel confident enough in this venture to produce this second monthly series.

We’re unpardonably late this month (thanks to my ear infection), but here’s the Yak that should have come out in early March. We talk about the two romantic comedies that caught all the eyeballs in Feb, and give our final (somewhat scathing) thoughts on the ending of The Last Empress. We could have gone on (Min Yoo-ra could have taken up another hour), but we took pity on you. XP

Hello listeners! Apologies of the lateness with this one, it’s been a busy and stressful month for us all. Yak is coming soon!
We cover the Burning Sun scandal plus charges against Jung Joon-young & Seungri. We discuss the post-Dramafever landscape and At&T’s future plans for streaming in the US. Also stay tuned for news about drama announcements and what’s releasing in March.
Hello beautiful listeners! We’re launching a NEW format, a monthly episode that covers news and upcoming dramas. We used to include this stuff in our Long Yaks, but those were getting so long as to become ridiculous, and we thought it’s be nice to have two episodes a month instead. Enjoy, and please let us know what you think of the new format!

Patrons who support us:
Once a year, our friends on Twitter come together under the #DecemberDramas hashtag to give their take on the dramas they watched that year. In 2018, we were blown away by how many of you participated, and it was great to laugh, cry and rage a little over the year’s dramas together. (Note: we weren’t able to include every single one because there were so many, so apologies to those left out—and thank you all so much for joining us!)
As usual it starts with a call to arms by Saya:
Are you guys ready to kick off #DecemberDramas tomorrow? We’re going to look back on 2018 & review what we’ve watched in 1-tweet drama reviews (+gif)! We’re also going to cheat when necessary. I hope we’ll see EVERYONE take part, old friends & new! (PS check out last year’s fun!) pic.twitter.com/KckxlnmsvK
Thanks as always to Kdramadaydreamer for her transcription! Find her on Twitter and show her some love.
Intro: Hi everyone! Anisa here. It’s our first Yak of 2019 — dear God. But also, Happy New Year! News was a little dry this month, so instead Saya asks me a bit about my studies – yes, I did write a paper about K-dramas last semester. Then we jump right into discussing currently airing shows My Strange Hero, Boyfriend, The Last Empress, Memories of the Alhambra, Red Moon, Blue Sun, and Top Star Yoo Baek. We also discuss some other stuff that’s already aired, K-drama and otherwise. And then we jump into January premieres. Be sure to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit us up on twitter @dramasoverflow to let us know what you’ve been watching, and what upcoming show you’re most excited for. Enjoy the Yak!
