Ep 32: Crazy Rich Asians

September 5, 2018

Welcome to Noona Ya Business Podcast Episode 32, “Crazy Rich Asians” with your hosts Becca and Megan.
 
Well, it may not be a Kdrama, but it is a distant cousin… We went to see “Crazy Rich Asians” in the theaters this weekend and have so many wonderful things to say about it!
 
We discuss the plot (warning, there are potential spoilers), our favorite scenes, the characters, the cast, and go in depth on why this is such an important movie for America right now.
 
We also talk about the one and only idol, Eric Nam and his family’s contribution to make sure this film was a box office success.
 
Plus, NEW SEGMENT ALERT! We go back in our friendship history and read old text messages in a segment called, “That’s What She Said”.
 
And we end with a listener request game - “If BTS were chain restaurants.” Find out why Jungkook has sticky floors and Jin loves breadsticks...
 
That’s what you’re in for today on Noona Ya Business.

Ep 31: BTS Love Yourself: Answer Album Review

August 31, 2018

Welcome to Noona Ya Business Podcast 31, “BTS: Love Yourself: Answer Album Review ” with your hosts Becca and Megan.
 
Well, the title says it all. Today we give an raw and in-depth album review of Love Yourself: Answer, from BTS. We go through the album song-by-song and talk about what we like - and honestly, some of the things we don’t… Also, Becca watches the “Idol” music video for the first time ever - live on the podcast. And let me tell you - that was an experience.
 
We also do a game request: If BTS were dog breeds and dog owners. You’d think that would be a very specific request, but you know what? We had two requests this week for the same thing! Crazy!
 
And get ready - we are doing another giveaway! To celebrate 5,000 downloads we are gearing up for another listener giveaway. Last time it went to a listener in Germany - this time it may be going to you!! That’s what you’re in for today on Noona Ya Business.

Ep 26: KDrama Therapy + Kpop Therapy

July 19, 2018
 
We all hear the same questions over and over again... "You like what?!" "They all look like girls!" "You're too old for fangirling..."
 
We collected your common KDrama and KPop issues and today we do a therapy session. We also talk about the struggles of being a Kpop and Kdrama fan in a world that doesn’t always understand us. And make a plea for the world to be little more accepting. We also let you know why you shouldn’t hate on your Unnie’s - because hopefully some day you will be one. 
 
We also invent a new dairy product - and - end with a Kdrama Rom Com Mad Lib.

Ep 24: SMLS (Second Male Lead Syndrome)

July 6, 2018

By popular request, we are covering the debilitating condition of SMLS, Second Male Lead Syndrome. It’s a common condition, and 9 out of 10 KDrama fans catch it at some point in their lives.
 
It can lead to heartbreak, mood swings, and fits of rage. There are no known cures. Today we go over good and bad examples of SMLS and ponder why Kdrama female leads have such poor choices in men. (Come on ladies - have higher standards for yourselves!)
 
Our game today is another listener request: “If BTS were Rom Coms + Meet Cutes”. We’re digging into our guilty pleasure archives for this one - and it was a blast from the past!

Because of tornadoes and flash flooding, we had to skip a week - and we missed all of you so much!

We did our research, put together a survey, and polled fans on Twitter - today we're hashing out the results.

Also, Becca weighs in on the obsession with male idols eating suckers. Megan claims Jimin as her favorite comfort animal. And we finish our "two truths and a lie" game. Let's chat!
