We discuss: The song we featured during the recap: Time by Baek-a. Our upcoming, fun-filled weekend with Ernabel in New York; follow along with our adventures on Instagram @kdramachat. What we think of Jang Tae-sang thinking that he was busy staying alive and only caring about himself and his business until he met Yoon Chae-ok. Jang Tae-sang’s origin story, including how his mother saved him and told him to stay alive, and how he came to meet Mrs. Nawol when she was thrown out of the local jail. Jang Tae-sang is clearly influenced by his mother: his mother made him promise he would do everything he could to stay alive, and perhaps his reluctance to join the Patriotic Society was because his mom

List of Elements We See In Nearly Every K Drama

In episode 6.5 of our podcast, we mentioned that we've compiled a list of the elements that we find to be in every K Drama. Not every element is in every episode, but most of these elements find their way into every show. We find that once you identify these elements, you start seeing them in all of your favorite show. But somehow, the filmmakers manage to make each show fresh and interesting, even though, for example, every show has an umbrella scene, a back hug, scenes of people eating, a fireworks scene. How about you? What do you think of our list? Do you agree with the list? What did we miss? What elements do you think don't belong on this list? Leave us a comment!

Kato realized that Yoon Chae-ok is the creature’s daughter and is now wondering how he can use her.  How Yoon Chae-ok wants to fight to the end, while Jang Tae-sang is going to do whatever he needs to do to stay alive.  The heartbreaking realization by Yoon Chae-ok tha

6.4 - Review of Episode 4 of Gyeongseong Creature

Today, we’ll be discussing Episode 4 of Gyeongseong Creature, the hit K Drama on Netflix starring Park Seo-joon as Jang Tae-sang, Han So-hee as Yoon Chae-ok, Wi Ha-jun as Kwon Jun-taek, Kim Soo-hyun as Lady Maeda, Ji Woo as Myeong-ja, Jo Han-chul as Yoon Joon-won, and Kim Hae-sook as Nawol daek. We discuss: The song that we feature during the recap: Time, electric version, by LEAFY. We thank listeners who recently commented on the website. We now know what Jang Tae-sang was really doing when he was goofing around Gyeongseong: playing mahjong, riding a rickshaw aimlessly, ordering a new suit at the tailor shop. Why Sachimoto risked his neck and help Jang Tae-sang; we think it’s related to Yoon Chae-ok’s mom. What we think of Kwon Jun-taek: where he came from, his relationship with Jang Tae-sang, and why he entered the hospital (to look for two comrades who were recently picked up by the Japanese Army). Why Jang Tae-sang didn’t reveal who Sachimoto was when Yoon Chae-ok first met Sachimo
