Podcast 32. What’s Up in Dramaland? News and Upcoming Dramas in February

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!

Podcast 31. The Long Yak – The Crowned Clown | SKY Castle | Boyfriend | Red Moon Blue Sun

Our Long Yaks are getting the tiniest bit shorter. You get the drama reviews and discussions here, while news and upcoming gets its own episode under “What’s Up in Dramaland?”

Thanks to all our patrons for helping us realise some of our ideas!

[Transcript] Podcast 30. The Long Yak – Memories of the Alhambra | My Strange Hero | Boyfriend | The Last Empress

transcript ep 30

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 dramasoverflowers@gmail.com 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!

tly 28 transcript

Once again, thanks so much to Kdramadaydreamer for typing up this transcript in her own time. Also because the theme of this episode ended up becoming ableism in K-dramas, it makes me especially happy to post this transcript, in the hopes that it might be enjoyed by someone who is unable to listen to the pod in its usual form. – Anisa
