PODCAST: Pop A La Carte #125 – Pearl’s Next Girl

pop a la carte 125 pearl next door

Angela and Tatiana engage in another very special Asian Drama Corner, starting with Lee Min Ho’s upcoming star turn in Pachinko just as one of us finishes up The King: Eternal Monarch (1:00).

After that, it’s GL drama central – or more accurately, an exploration of dramas that incorporate WLW storylines (8:00). The new Filipino series Pearl Next Door actually has a bisexual female lead, the Thai drama Friendzone 2 has a lesbian couple in the mix, the Indian webseries Firsts tells the story of two women in its latest season, and the upcoming Chinese drama The Unknown: Legend of Exorcist Zhong Kui will have a “censored” romance between two ladies as well.

Finally, it’s the round-up of kdramas we have watched recently (26:30): King 2 Hearts, Lie After Lie, Alice, Stranger 2, When I Was The Prettiest, Zombie Detective, 18 Again, Start Up, and Mr. Heart.

Let us know what’s new on your roster in the comments below, and check out other episodes on the podcast on Podomatic.
