  1. I’m new to K-dramas this year and am totally in LOVE and don’t want to watch anything else!
    I’m listening to your end of year wrap up and having some trouble understanding the titles of your top picks. Is there a list somewhere that I could reference.

  2. So great. I finally had time to listen to your picks, I had choices from each so it’s no surprise I enjoyed allll your thoughts and commentary, too much perhaps, I just got back from Tumblr after losing an hour looking up Beyond Evil posts after Sayas heartfelt commendation and am just barely restraing myself from a rewatch.
    Looking forward to your next yak!
