Beanie level: Water maid

Netflix US didn’t license ‘My Country: New Age’ for the full 16 episodes. What a joke.

    Really? How many episodes will be available on Netflix?

      Currently it says 12. Usually they supply a list of when the episodes will be airing, and there is no list.

        Ooo…I just think that’s a new thing on Netflix.

        Vagabond initially had a list for future eps and upcoming release dates too, but now the list is gone. I vaguely recall seeing viewers complain that on Netflix list the new Vagabond episode was supposed to be released on a certain date. But in actuality the episode was suddenly postponed in Korea, however the list on Netflix remained the original schedule. Unlike Netflix originals like Kingdom, most (if not all) dramas can only be aired on Netflix after it is aired in Korea.

        Same goes to dramas that suddenly have additional episodes or reduced episodes. Imo rather than having a list that will need constant updating, it’s easier to remove the list altogether.

    WTF. I’m trying to look into it too, but I’ve never heard of Netflix only uploading part of the season when they’re suppose to have the full 16 episodes… UGHHH I forgot this show was on Netflix tbh.

    I wonder if they’re gonna upload later than JTBC/South Korea’s air date because EP 13 did air during the normal tv schedule.

      According to What’s On Netflix, they’re airing the episodes a day behind this week. We’ll see if that’s true.

    Maybe if they catch on a little more in the US we’ll have access to more of them? It was kind of like a Viki/Netflix advertisement.

      Yeah, that’s troubling when there’s only two places to legally stream subtitled dramas. If ODK offered more subtitled current dramas, it would outpace Viki for sure.

    Wow this sounds like written by a super-fan! Great article! I was very surprised and happy to see Best Love and City Hall recommended, as both of them are usually the least recommended show of their respective writers. The explanations about finding happiness through family and friends were spot on.

Realizing my age while watching \”The Third Charm\” and reading the comments here and other forums. Have we really gotten to the point where we only watch drama to escape and not to analyze?

    It’s always been 50/50 for me. I don’t want to analyze everything. Some things you just want to enjoy the ride.

    Saaaaaaaame. I’m so sick of the comments against YoungJae. I don’t whether to sigh that they’re naive or be happy that they’re blessed to not know what it feels to have lost people after people and take hit after hit.

    Am I really that old???

      Yes, we’re that old. Naivete is a luxury we can’t afford. I just wish people would just do what I do when I can’t stand something — change the channel. Like, there’s so much less demanding things out there. Go watch it.

The worst is almost upon me: DF has put all streaming of new shows on hiatus. The slouching beast of capitalism has set its sights on Kdrama. Ottoke.

      No!!!! Just “postponed until a later date.” Which makes me really nervous.

        And “please be patient”. Apparently they aren’t familiar with their K-drama watchers. We know what time it aired in South Korea. We have no patience.

            I decided to watch Bad Papa on Viki first, but if they haven’t got 100 Days Prince up by tonight, reprieve is over. I’m perfectly happy to pay to watch my shows legally, but if you won’t give me my shows? I do know where else to go.

      I read that and it seems they don’t understand how Kdramas actually work. I think it’s time to drop DF so the powers that be understand they can’t mess with kdrama addicts.

        Netflix hasn’t clued in all the way yet either.

          They had the right idea with Mr. Sunshine, but that’s because they co-produced it and snapped up the distribution rights out of the gate.

          Netflix is sitting on a streaming gold mine if they can ink a deal with tvN, OCN, and/or JTBC for same-day or next day streaming.

        I really really hope this is just a temp thing, and they aren’t really trying to make me binge watch. Cause I can’t just take my money and go home — I have an annual subscription that just renewed last week! I mean . . . I could not renew next year, but that doesn’t send any type of message.

        Maybe I could ask for a refund . . .

      I read that too but I’d be surprised if that has any bearing on the current absence of new dramas airing.

    I was happy because after a dry spell, DF was actually getting the license to quite a few dramas and then this happens. Sigh.

    I read that Warner is doing some direct streaming reorganization nightmare to begin next year. I think the issue is effecting DF with regards to licensing.

My mother is a SIG stan so I had to watch The Smile Has Left Your Eyes. Fast forward to 1:18 a.m. and had to be at work for 8 a.m.

Finished Something in the Rain, and *drumroll* 4/5 stars. I realize this places me in the Phantom Zone of opinions, but I don’t care! It was angsty, romantic, frustrating, in short, good.

    I thought it was one of the best written, acted and shot dramas I’ve ever seen. I just thought it was depressing and frustrating as hell and the OST made me want to shoot myself.
