Certified Genres: Variety

We were a little bit loose this week and didn’t have anything planned to watch, so we ended up with a new monthly feature. We listed a bunch of genres, picked one out of a jar, and discussed our favorite show from the genre. We drew variety shows this week:

We also spent some time discussing what we have been watching. Happy listening!

Certified Wandering Earth

This week on the podcast we talked about the Chinese movie, The Wandering Earth, a sci-fi/end of the world/destruction film that was a mega hit when released in China, and did well in the screenings internationally. It currently sits at #3 on the top grossing movies of 2019.

Netflix acquired the rights to the movie, yet released it quietly. In the episode we talk about why we liked the film, why Netflix is promoting it the way they are, and talk about the author of the book it was based on:

This episode is under an entire “spoiler alert” so go watch the movie and come back to listen!

Podcast: Certified Trot

The first week of the month we dedicate our episode to music, and this week we chose to talk about trot.

If you aren’t aware of what trot is or just haven’t dived into it, hopefully this episode will spark your interest in this music genre. Kpop isn’t the only music coming out of Korea that you should be listening to.

For all the music episodes I make a massive Youtube playlist to accompany it. Any video that we talk about (that is available to find) is in the list, in order. It really helps if you want to see the clips we are referencing, or the music we individually like. I also threw in some extras at the end:

We also have a Spotify playlist:

Podcast: Certified First Loves

I promised myself that I would start updating this blog once I got off contract and can dedicate more time that is usually spent doing my actual job, and here I am. Success!

As you probably know, I’m part of the podcast The Certified Noonas. We post an episode once a week (on Mondays), and we’ve been working hard on it for the past 6 months. It’s a lot of fun, but a good bit of work (even with four of us total), so naturally I want to share that work. I’m going to try to remember to post about it every week.

This week we watched and discussed the first 8 episodes of My First First Love on Netflix, starring Jisoo, Jung Chae Yeon, and Jung Jin Young. The rest of the cast can be found here.

Along with talking about those episodes, we also played a game of MASH but with a twist. I was cracking up while editing that part, it’s probably our best game yet (even though I’m obviously biased).

Listen to the podcast here (spoilers are listed in the time codes below, but we do talk about all 8 episodes):
