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!
