Certified Sisyphus the Myth
公開日時: 2021-09-22 01:53:20

This week we are confused and talking about the first four episodes of the kdrama, Sisyphus the Myth on Netflix. Although we do talk about the first four episodes, it's debatable if we actually spoil anything. Or that the drama can even be spoiled at this point. But avoid the episode if you aren't caught up yet.

Note: while it's not particularly a spoiler, we did spend some time talking about 100 Days My Prince during our "What We're Watching" section, and so I added it the time code if you want to skip. But you probably shouldn't. Cause we're funny.

This week we talk about what we are watching and discuss the first episode of the new sageuk drama, The Crowned Clown and discuss clowns and court jesters in general, as well as play a fun game.



We only discuss the first episode of the series in this one, so don't worry about any spoilers except for things in that episode!

Editing note: Hi, it's Jessie. My audio did that weird thing again, so for headphone users I apologize. Pretend we were talking on the phone and I just went into a weird tunnel for a bit. We're not perfect around these parts, but I still feel bad that it happened.

Certified Social Distance
公開日時: 2021-09-22 01:53:20

It's been a week and it just keeps getting crazier. We're a little off-topic this episode, but we figured that talking about what's going on with the world (and our own lives) and how it's affecting us was essential.

Be sure to follow us on all our social media and on our blog, we'll probably be posting a lot more now that we all have the time, and if any special event happens we'll be announce it there.



Stay safe and healthy!

Certified Spooky: Surprise Serial Killers
公開日時: 2021-09-22 01:53:20

This week we're back with the genre jar, and on theme for the month. We put out a poll and you voted that we should be talking about surprise serial killers. Sometimes, dramas like to take you on an unexpected death route that you were not expecting. We also catch you up on our watches, and share about some of the spooky shows we are going to be watching in honor of the month.



Because these tend to be a bit more on the spoilery side, check below in the time codes to avoid a show you don't want to hear about.



Want to know our second picks for suprise serial killers? Support us on ko-fi where we'll have it uploaded later this week. https://ko-fi.com/certifiednoonas

Certified Spoilers: My First First Love
公開日時: 2021-09-22 01:53:20

*This whole episode is under a full spoiler alert for (mainly) the second season of My First First Love.



Sky and Jessie finished the second season of My First First Love and realized they had a lot of opinions and needed to share them, but couldn't wait for the other Noonas so here we are with a special spoilers episode! Think of this as the first mini album of the American line sub-unit. We are still working out a good name. Any and all suggestions welcome.



The episode where we talk about the first season as a whole can be found here: https://certifiednoonas.podbean.com/e/certified-first-loves/

Certified Questions & Answers
公開日時: 2021-09-22 01:53:20

As a thank you for listening to us (you like us, you really like us!) we answered some of your burning questions. Grab your drink of choice and sit back and listen to us talk a lot, because that is what we are superb at.



We also watched the first couple episodes of the kdrama A Thousand Kisses, a family drama that we chose because it was the only drama with "thousand" in the title we could find legally. We like themes, ok?



Note: we talk about a number of dramas in this episode, but we make a point of only noting spoilers if they refer to a recent show.

Certified Monsta X
公開日時: 2021-09-22 01:53:20

Because 75% of the Noonas are going to the Monsta X concert (the day after this podcast is released!), we decided it was only fitting to highlight them for this month's music episode. Listen as we talk about the group and our collective love for them, and spend most of the time recreating the truth or dare tower game. We also talk about what we've been listening to, and what we are looking forward to in the next month.
