DYC, there is an active discussion thread for Queen Sundeok in "Other Shows." We're not putting up a forum because we're hoping that we'll eventually get back to having Korean series that run out of Chicago locally, so we're hanging tight on revamping the board. So for now, those series are in Other Shows.
From Dae Jang-geum: Sun-dol: "Are you trying to dry me up and kill me? Why do you say the same things over and over every day? Rather, come and hit me once! Aigu!" But then: Dr. Lazarus: "By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Warvan... You shall be avenged."
Saw the first Three Bros epi last nite. Seems like standard, contemp K-drama but the characters are interesting so far, and the story line may be a bit more modern. One young woman loses her falsie. (That's what we used to call those foam inserts inside a brassiere). A man finds it, hands it to her, and she stuffs it back in right in front of him!
Thanks Mara and Domyoung. I certainly CAN stick out 50+ epis since Brothers and ChaChaCha are all I get in NYC unless I pay extra for KBS America which according to the promos, is a lot of news, game shows, religion, and not enough dramas to make it worth while..
It has the most evil mother (in law )i have ever seen ,my god this lady is a piece of work . KBS AMERICA Yes game shows by the truck load ,they did have a documentary on Gam Gamchan and the third Goryeo /Khitan war the other day and im ........why did i not tape that ? The only Historical Dramas are re runs of Hwang Jini and Emp /Sea Still IRIS was great and SLAVE HUNTERS starts soon.

My cable company - Verizon FIOS - doesn't have KBS America - they do have MBC America. I have that now as a freebie for 90 days - I'm now watching Great Queen Seondeok - I think the last episode is tonite - but I don't think it's worth subscribing for $30 a month as there aren't that many dramas with esubs. Plus it seems that dramafever shows a lot of the MBC dramas. So I am stuck with WMBC Channel 63 as well.
We are lucky here (in some ways )because KBS America Sublets from the Station that used to carry all the Japanese Dramas and this is a local station as well ,so the upshot we lost our Japanese Programming but got our Korean Programming Back ,because of the leasing agreement it does not cost us anything extra . Now if (or probably a matter of when )KBS Move's to a premium channel would i fork out 22 bucks a month . well right now im watching IRIS (Finishes tonight ) THREE BROTHERS JOLLY WIDOWS TEMPTATION OF THE HEIR But when we first got this in December the line up was pretty bleak so id say right now we are ok but overall most of the programming is game shows and concerts and not worth 22 bucks at all .
Mara, here in NYC, I have Cablevision (IO). We get WMBC on channel 20. They show Japanese, Chinese, and Korean stuff (not dramas) between 8 PM and midnight (give or take). The rest is some Italian news and a dama where a priest rides around in a bicycle solving crimes, and infomercials. I guess I should be happy with what I have.
