This week we watched IU's indie/art house anthology series: Persona and dive into our feelings about each of the shorts. We also play a BTS-themed game because of course we would.

The times we talk about each of the parts are in the time codes below, but we do discuss some of the others within each of those. If you are really trying to avoid spoilers beware.

Certified Incomplete

Certified Incomplete

April 8, 2019

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:

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? ;)

This week we talk about the kpop girl group 2NE1, which spurs a discussion about the lack of girl groups in kpop that aren't close to 2NE1 and why that might be.

You can find a YouTube playlist with the videos that we talk about in this episode (that I could find) plus some other videos that you should check out here.

This week we watched Psychokinesis, a movie that led to us also talking about Train to I guess that makes this an unintended double feature week?

We also play a fun superpower game and talk about a little March Madness goodie that we have in the works. Keep up to date by following our Twitter @CertifiedNoonas to know all the details!

We talk extensively about Psychokinesis with no regard to spoilers, and although we start our talk about Train to Busan early on the real spoilers are listed below.

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.

It’s our semi-unhelpful-but-hopefully-fun guide to one of Jessie’s favorite groups: 2PM!

We play some games, talk about the guys and some of their variety/drama appearances, and discuss our thoughts on their music. We also dive a little deep into some kpop news that came out recently that we felt we needed to discuss.

Certified Zen Feelings

February 25, 2019

You know those shows that just make all the cares in the world go away because nothing is at stake? This week we talk about some of our favorite variety shows that evoke that feeling: Hyori's Homestay, Coffee Friends, It's Dangerous Beyond the Sheets, and Little House in the Woods.

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.

Also, Natalia has been on fire with her merch game. Check out her store and pick up some really great kdrama/kpop related goods.
