    I want to watch this an Confession, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to find subs.

      @ndlessjoie I have discovered DramaC**L and they typically have subs for most- as well as a lot of older dramas. I pay for all the others (including DF, may it rest in peace) so I am completely guiltfree if I have to go off the grid. I use an ad blocker app which helps

        Sometimes the subs are terrible though. It’s making me think more seriously about learning more Korean (I only understand enough to know when subs are really missing the mark). It’s also making me hope for a new start up to take over where DF left off.

          @ndlessjoie Yes, the caliber of subs is a real issue. For example, I tried to watch Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food early on, but the subs were such google gibberish that I gave up.
          I wonder how Netflix is doing it, so far I find their subs to be accurate, adequate and timely.

Also buried in the article is the reason for all the soundtrack substitutions.
Or, as I like to call it, ” Why they pulled the plug in Dramafever!”

Homemade Tangerine Syrup and the Korean version of honey citron that we’re addicted to! @ryunami

    how do you make the syrup? i have lots of limes that i’m thinking to preserve

      @siesta Very easy! They did 1 part citrus, 1 part juice, 1 part honey with a layer of sugar on top.

      So,…Wash your citrus thoroughly, slice dried fruit thinly. I used cara cara oranges, cut in half, then sliced thinly. Layer in a sterilized jar with honey and juice. Top with sugar, seal and keep in refrigerator. Give 24-48 hours before using.

      You can use a simple syrup rather than honey and juice. Boil 1 cup water with 1/2 cup sugar and use in place of.

      You can also use spices. Cinnamon, star anise, allspice, cloves and ginger are all possibilities.

        I have boxes of mandarin oranges for Chinese New Year and i think i can try making mandarin syrup with your recipe.. it will be nice to drink ice tea citrus in hot days like this.. and since its saturday and i have all day to myself im planning to make the kaya too – a neighbour gave me several old coconuts and one is enough to produce pure coconut milk for a jar of kaya.

        Can I consider this my first real sageuk (outside of QIHM?)

        I’m intrigued with the historical setup for a zombie story. Zombies usually bore me. Sageuks usually bore me. But will the combo work work this time? To date, the only zombie tales I’ve enjoyed have been Train to Busan the novel The Girl With All the Gifts.

          Same! It works here with Kingdom; the sageuk thread gives heft to the storyline, and the zombies add (meaningful) mayhem to the dull political intrigue.

          Actually, the zombie background is well thought out and impressively real….I cant believe I’m saying this!?

          3
          1

          Yeah, I can’t watch Saguek’s either. But in this context I like it. It’s more mysterious since it’s set it those times. Who would have thought we needed a Sageuk/Zombie combo :))
          And I loved train t Busan!

      I’ve gotten to four; it keeps getting better! I’m so tempted to power through but I work early tomorrow.

      Btw, I am loving the dainty episodes of 55 minutes or less!

Kingdom is up on Netflix…

So, enquiring minds…..

I wonder why Kingdom isn’t listed in Dramabeans weekly schedule. Is it because it’s Netflix? Or all released at once? Also, is it still a kdrama if bought/paid by others?

    I think so. Even if the money has come from Netflix, it’s been written, directed, produced, acted – basically everything, by Korean people. Also, the language of the drama is Korean.

    Possibly because all the episodes are dropping at once on Netflix instead of airing on a Korean network.

      Which is how Netflix tends to operate and….

      Is it not on Netflix in your region? I have no problem using other sites if it’s not uploaded to my usual suspects.

        I believe that it is. I just wish that some of the other drama streaming sites pick it up because I’m not sure if I want to create a Netflix account.

Worst PPL ever goes to Swarowski crystal and PSH in Memories of the Alhambra……Really? Five minutes about earrings? Ugh

    The un-PPL. She wears the brand she is spokes-cutie for and he doesn’t like them πŸ™‚

      Un-PPL?

      Instead I would call it PPL-ed to Death; his faux-dislike is only so they can stretch it out even looooooonger. It’s not the earrings or her role as spokesman….its that it’s done so crassly.

      I actually think PPL is a genius solution to commercials, and I love it when it’s done well, as attested by my attachment to maxim french cafe.

      This was just bad, and no amount of dimple can save it
