Certified Back to School
公開日時: 2021-09-22 01:53:20

It's back to school time for some of us (or their offspring) and this week we have you screaming at whatever you are listening to us on as we tell you all about our favorite school dramas and forget every single actors name in the process.



*We try to be spoiler free here, but do talk about a wide variety of dramas in this episode, most of which are fairly old. We try to keep spoilers down for recent shows, but did limit ourselves in this one as to not talk about anything major.

Noonas 101: Where to Watch
公開日時: 2021-09-22 01:53:20

Grab a drink, some snacks, and a pen and notebook because we are talking about all of the different places you can legally watch dramas. We go over our favorites, talk extensively about the pros and cons of some of the most used services, and hit you with a wall of knowledge. This is a long one, and might not be for our listeners who have been in the drama watching game for a while, but we wanted to help anyone who may have just started watching figure out what other services are right for them, and maybe you’ll find a new service to add to your list.



If you have any questions, let us know in the comments. Along with the time codes, we’ll have detailed links and graphics to go along with this podcast, so make sure you check out our blog post here: https://bit.ly/3r5oNER 



*We pre-recorded this episode about a month ago, and since then there were some updates on some of the services we talked about (specifically TVING), but almost all of the main information is the same. We've also since then decided to do a livestream this Wednesday, the 14th at 8pm EST. Link to the stream will be given on Twitter, or you can subscribe to our channel. Don't worry if you miss this one, we'll be starting regular streams soon.
