Welcome to Part 2 of this month’s Long Yak. Here we move away from our usual Korean fare and check out some new and old Chinese dramas that have caught Paroma’s attention and imagination. We also cover some Japanese anime and dramas, and then introduce a new segment: questions we want to ask each other! And we end, of course, on Saya’s terrible (but inevitable) monthly dad joke AKA “ajusshi gag”.
00:01:00. Nirvana in Fire (and Chinese Wuxia dramas)
00:07:52. Love Weaves Through a Millennium (Chinese version of Queen In-hyun’s Man)
00:10:03. A Love So Beautiful (Currently airing, Paroma likes it so far)
00:13:55. Love 020 (Paroma highly recommends)
00:17:35. The You’ve Got Mail trope, and related drama and book recs
00:20:50. Gakuen Babysitters (an anime Saya is loving)
00:23:30. New Segment! Questions we have for each other. (This month: How do we choose what to watch?)
