Ep 39: Five Things on Our Mind

November 10, 2018

Welcome to Noona Ya Business podcast, episode 39 “Five Things on Our Mind” with your hosts Becca and Megan.
 
We each have five things on our mind today and we get together to suss them out. Megan wants to talk about Mono (the music, not the illness). Becca has conflicted feelings on While You Were Sleeping (the Kdrama not the American movie). And we both want to know why the Korean Entertainment industry makes it hard for us to Google things… BTS? BIGBANG? Help some fangirls out already!!
 
We also play a listener requested game, “What does BTS smell like?”
 
That’s what you’re in for today on Noona Ya Business.

Ep 38: Scary Things for Kpop + Kdrama Fans (Halloween Edition)

October 31, 2018

Welcome to Noona Ya Business podcast, episode 38 “Scary Things for Kpop and Kdrama Fans (the Halloween Edition)” with your hosts Becca and Megan.
 
Happy Halloween friends! Today we dig into a haunting topic - the scariest things that can happen to a Kpop and/or Kdrama fan. We’ve all been there, and we need to unpack the frightening feelings.
 
We also discuss the creepiness of Kpop / Kdrama trolls. End the show with a Halloween-themed game: GOT7 as Trick-or-Treaters. And read a transcription of Becca’s reaction to watching the popular zombie movie: “Train to Booze-an”.
 
Becca also wears a costume - but you’ll have to log into YouTube to see what it is. 
 
That’s what you’re in for today on Noona Ya Business.

Ep 37: Woman Crush Wednesday

October 25, 2018

Welcome to Noona Ya Business podcast, episode 37 “Woman Crush Wednesday” with your hosts Becca and Megan.
 
Happy Woman Crush Wednesday - or Thursday - depending on what country you live in! Today we cover a listener requested topic, “Second Female Leads - the good, the bad, and the beautiful”. We deep dive into our love and admiration for some of the most talented women out there. We also vent our frustrations about the nasty way women are portrayed in some dramas… I swear, we’re not all evil, knifing, back-stabbing goddesses...
 
And it’s been one long week since DramaFever has departed and we want to know how you’re doing!! To help you get through this difficult time, we start the show by pairing wines with each stage of grief.
 
And we end the show with a listener requested game, just in time for Halloween: BTS as candy.

Ep 36: In Loving Memory of DramaFever

October 17, 2018

Welcome to Noona Ya Business Podcast 36, “In Loving Memory of DramaFever” with your hosts Becca and Megan.
 
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to remember a close friend who brought us all together. Today, we fondly look back at our short time together with DramaFever. We read the obituary, we share our memories, we grieve as one. DramaFever, age 9, gone but not forgotten.
 
We also liven things up with the game “How BIGBANG would cope with losing DramaFever.” We also pick a winner for our 5K giveaway, give a book club update, and do our first video podcast!! You can listen via your favorite podcast subscription sites - OR - actually watch our sickly faces on YouTube. The choice is yours - and yours alone.
 
That’s what you’re in for today on Noona Ya Business.
 
*Please Note* While Megan is traveling our audio setup is slightly different, meaning you may notice a decrease in the quality of the audio. Also, on this particular day, Megan was fighting a nasty cold - further diminishing the sound quality - although we prefer to believe she sounds like a seductive Kdrama temptress. Thank you for supporting us while we figure out this new setup.

Ep 35: Front Row at BTS

October 10, 2018

Well. It happened. And we are still processing it. One week ago today we sat front row at the BTS: Love Yourself Tour. And today we unpack all of our feelings and emotions.
 
From Yoongi’s pajama suit, to Jimin’s giggle, and RM’s glasses. We replay the entire night.
 
Thank you to all our listeners who sent us well wishes and advice. Thank you to all of our new friends we made at the show. And thank you, personally, for being here again today. We can’t wait to talk to you all again!

Ep 34: When Nice Guy Isn’t Nice

September 28, 2018
 
Today we need to talk about nice guy. The nice guy we defended in episode 24 (when we talked about the debilitating condition known as Second Male Lead Syndrome) because it turns out nice guy isn’t always so nice. In fact, sometimes he’s a psychotic nightmare-fueled relationship from the firey pits of the Earth. (We’re talking to you Temperature of Love and Your Honor!!) That’s right - we talk about when Second Male Lead Syndrome goes wrong…or right? However you want to look at it.
 
We also talk about a new game Becca’s husband likes to play. Almost cry over the fact that this is our last podcast together in person. Try to settle our nauseous stomachs because we’re seeing three Kpop concerts in the next five days. AND we do two listener game requests: If GOT7 were Disney characters and if BTS were Disney Princesses.
 
00:00 Intro

Ep 33: How to Fall in Love (According to KDramas)

September 19, 2018

Today’s episode is 100% listener requests. We break down a detailed, 12-step plan on how to fall in love - at least, how to fall in love according to Kdramas. You may want to take notes, because there is a rich jerk (with a hidden heart of gold) waiting to fall in love with you so he can serve you an insult sandwich.
 
Find out why the Han River is going to play a pivotal part in your relationship, why it’s super important to check the weather reports before you cue overdramatic crying spells, and why it’s all about location, location, location.
 
We also play two games for a dear friend of the podcast… Keeping on theme, we do “If GOT7 were KDrama characters” and “If BTS were KDrama tropes”. We’re routing for Mark and JB all day long (even if Yugyeom is the better choice) and we want all the extra JHopes - as long as we can get him, as often as we can get him, in every show we can get him.
 
And BONUS - IT’S TIME FOR ANOTHER GIVEAWAY! Stay tuned for details on our latest giveaway and find out how you can enter!

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.

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.

Welcome to Noona Ya Business Podcast, Episode 30 “Rooftop Prince (Part 2)”, with your hosts Becca and Megan.
 
Today we dissect the second half of Rooftop Prince. From the refrigerated truck of friendship to the burning warehouse of love - find out if the Crown Prince and Park Ha can find romance amidst all of the elements. We pick up right where we left off in episode 25 - feel free to go back and listen if you need a refresher...
 
Spoiler: It’s all murder and business in part two of this epic Kdrama. Blazers, perfectly annoying haircuts, and someone kills grandma? It’s all drama - all the time.
 
Pop quiz: Who wins when the Crown Prince wears glasses? We all do. We are all winners here today.
 
But first, we do a listener game request: If BTS were parties. Check your mailbox, because we’re sending out invitations for these!
 
And lastly, we deep dive into a very sensitive topic: the Adams apple. That’s right, the elbow of the throat. Why is it so prominent in Kdramas? Why are we attracted to it? And who has the best one? SOS - we need help figuring this all out!!
 
That’s what you’re in for today on Noona Ya Business.
