Certified C-POP
公開日時: 2021-09-22 01:53:20

This week we spent some time listening to a relatively new genre for us, C-POP and discuss some of the groups we enjoyed, some of the obstacles that arrived trying to find new music, and just generally discuss how important it is to go outside of your comfort zone to experience new music. Just like all the other music episodes, we also talk about what we've been listening to and what's coming up in the month of May (aka October 2.0).



This is an info-packed episode, so for all links, playlists, and time codes that go along with this episode, check out this blog post.

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

In honor of Im Siwan's return to civilian life, we watched the first episode of the kdrama Misaeng (also know as Incomplete Life). We also play a fun Madlibs game and talk about what we're watching and what shows we're looking forward to.



We only spoil the first episode of the show, and discuss a few slight things that happen in some of the later episodes, but it really isn't much and doesn't ruin anything. There is a small Touch Your Heart spoiler, and we did discuss the meaning behind the name Misaeng which is found out later in the series. Times for these spoilers are down in the time codes section.



Kdrama Madlibs came from here: http://www.livinginloganland.com/2017/05/kdrama-mad-lib-game.html

Just as an aside, I tried to get rid of as much of the background typing noise as possible but alas it is still there. Just think of it as ambient background sound that was intentional and on theme for the episode? ;)

Noonas 101: Certified Animals
公開日時: 2021-09-22 01:53:20

We're starting a new series where every once and a while we focus our topic on something that's a bit more "educational". It may be things you don't know because you are new to the fandom, or just haven't picked up on something. We're here to help tell you a bit about it, and help you know what everyone else is talking about.



For this episode of Noonas 101, we are talking about animals. Maybe you've heard a kpop idol referenced as an animal, or have seen tweets and it only had animals on it, and have wondered what it's all about. We're here to help.
