This month, we're back and labouring under the realisation that when you have a K-drama podcast, you have to watch the biggest global TV sensation in the history of K-dramas! I admit, we are not hating it, but we reserve the right to grumble! We also take a sidestep to talk about whether age affects how we enjoy actors, before jumping into October premieres.

00:20:09 Does an actor's age affect how you feel about them?

00:43:46 Reflection of you
