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 review the first week of The King’s Affection, our strong reactions to the childhood story of our protagonists, our resentment over deaths that we knew were coming but wish didn’t happen, and our anticipation of the grown by characters carrying the story forward!
