A Man And A Woman
Join Lia and Special Guest Lexi as we do a dive deep into the 2016 South Korean film, "A Man and a Woman". Directed by Lee Yoon-ki (Love Talk, One Day), this spare and affecting story follows two individuals, both struggling with their personal lives, who find solace and unexpected love in each other. Starring Jeon Do-yeon and Gong Yoo, the film explores the complexities of human emotions, Gong Yoo's butt (sorry but let's be real... many people have checked out the movie for this reason), and Lia can't resist doing  "Am I The A**hole" pondering on at least one character. Also this is a love story NOT a romance, I repeat...love story > romance. Sign Up for Our Newsletter!Want our thoughts on why everyone should watch I'm Not a Robot in a 500-word essay?

Afternoona Uncensored: Why Cliffhangers Keep Us Coming Back For More

Afternoona Uncensored: Why Cliffhangers Keep Us Coming Back For More
On this month's Uncensored episode, Megan and Lia touch on cliffhangers--a tried-and-true narrative technique that writers use to keep their audience on the hook. It's all about creating suspense and leaving the story unresolved at a pivotal moment, making readers itching to know what happens next. Writers employ cliffhangers strategically, often at the end of chapters, episodes, or installments, to maintain audience interest in continuing on.Cliffhangers come in many forms, from surprising plot twists to life-changing decisions, and they can be found across various storytelling mediums, including books, TV shows, and even serialized podcasts. They've been a staple of storytelling for centuries, dating back to the serialized novels of the Victorian era, and continue to be a popular technique in contemporary literature and entertainment. So, the next time you find yourself cursing a Drama writer for leaving you hanging, just remember: it's all part of the grand tradition of storytelling. And let's be real, we wouldn't have it any other way.Show Notes:Silver Army YouTube channelSign Up for Our Newsletter!Want our thoughts on why everyone should watch I'm Not a Robot in a 500-word essay?

Character Likability
Today we're talking about what makes a fictional character likable, unlikable, and everything in between. Is there such thing as a universally likable character? How do our own internal biases affect our judgment of whether or not a character is likable? And can an unlikable hero or heroine redeem themselves to become likable in the end?

Something In The Rain

Something In The Rain
Join Lia, Sarah (Afternoona Asks/Kdrama This) and Megan (Afternoona Army) for a deep dive in the 2018 drama Something In The Rain (aka Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food) starring Jung Hae-in and Son Ye-jin. This drama is about a thirty-something woman (whose routine has gotten stale) and the romance she strikes up with her little brother's best friend. This is a heart-felt slice of life where characters grapple with taboos, misogyny, desire (in lovers, life, the universe, and everything) and a mom who is notorious within K-drama Land--but Sarah unpacks very thoughtfully using a Confucian lens. While we can't say we love where the drama ended, and we're split on the OST, are we glad we went along for the ride?

Listener Line Up: Patreon Edition
Once upon a time Lia, Megan and Amy watched our first few Korean dramas and began an obsessive text chat. Then we started a podcast and the rest was history. Fast forward three (for real THREE) years later and look...we get really curious about ya'll. Who is listening? How did you get involved in this fandom? So we decided to flip the script and put a couple listeners up front. Join us as we meet Emma (who coined the term 'Kim Fin' and destroyed Megan and Amy's underwear) and Katherine (who as a working actor has fascinating insights to share about acting choices in dramas). This was a real treat and we'd like to do it again sometimes. Also, we need to start lifting our game because our listeners are funny, smart, and far cooler than us!Sign Up for Our Newsletter!Want our thoughts on why everyone should watch I'm Not a Robot in a 500-word essay?
