Saya, Anisa and Paroma are a transnational triumvirate of Korean drama addicts. We deep dive into K-dramas with equal measures of fangirling, critical analysis, and cultural context. As brown Asian women who live, write, and make things in both the diaspora and the homeland, we often get into meaty stuff like metaphors, real life parallels, diversity of representation, or just why a particular drama made us swoon/cry/rage and/or ruined us for real life.

We’re Saya, Anisa, and Paroma. Three women of South Asian descent, brought up in three different continents, as diverse in our cultural outlooks as we are in our accents. With our powers of drama analysis combined, we formed Dramas Over Flowers: a podcast that lets us work through our joys and frustrations of drama watching.
Saya rewatched Goblin for the dozenth time and pulled Paroma into a discussion of our deep love for a story that also has so many elements we feel conflicted on. Dive in with your SPOILER hats on.
