Too many Korean dramas to keep track of? Wondering what to watch this week? AussieInKorea has got you covered with reviews on popular and underrated Korean dramas, movies, and web series! Every weekend there will be a new episode on what I’ve been watching and my thoughts to get you ready to watch!
In summary, the podcast is going on hiatus. Thank you to those who have listened and supported until now. I just need to take a step back for the time being. Stay safe xx
Episode 37 — Birthdays & Coffee Princes
Coffee plus an all-star cast, plus a very dated storyline involving an androgynous female lead and the male lead questioning his sexuality equals one of the most memorable Korean dramas of all time. Coffee Prince represents an era of Korean dramas that will forever be problematic but nostalgic at the same time. All that and talking about completing my 28th cycle around the sun on this episode!
Episode 36 — The Transformative Years & Twenty
Ah, your twenties. A time when you start to form who you are as a person and stamp your place in the world. But when you have just twenty, how do you figure out your next step? Twenty shows through the eyes of three different young men and how they navigate this time in South Korea. A short and sweet episode with light-heartedness to boot.
Episode 35 — Kim Ji-Young: Born 1982, Building Towards Equality in 2021
The feminist movement has arrived in South Korea, but is the movie Kim Ji-young: Born 1982 enough to propel it further? Discussing one of the most influential and notable pieces of feminism in Korea to date, as well as a small ramble about life here in South Korea~
Episode 34 — Extracurriculars & Relationships

Extracurricular dives into the usually taboo topic of sex crimes and minors and the risks involved in getting tangled up in dangerous situations. That and a little bit of personal insight and good news on this episode!
