Yep, my friends, you read that right: I’m on a podcast! Whee~!
Y’know, I’d actually wanted to work in the phrase “You can hear my voice” somewhere in this post’s title, coz I thought it was such a funny pun, being a mash-up of drama titles “Can You Hear My Heart?” and “I Hear Your Voice” – but, I decided against it coz it is kinda obtuse, and if someone’s not in on the joke, I’d just sound like a pompous fool, wouldn’t I? 😆
ANYWAY. I got to be a guest on the Dramas Over Flowers podcast (you might remember the ladies from the excellent episode on bullying, that I shared previously), and you can listen to it right here!

Welcome to my first ever repost, in over 8 years of blogging, everyone! 🤩 Just by that fact alone, you can imagine that the original post must be very special indeed, to galvanize me into reposting it, yes? 😉
My friends Saya, Anisa and Paroma, whom you may recognize from their work on Dramabeans, and who are the ladies behind Dramas Over Flowers, recently did a fantastic deep-dive podcast episode on the issue of bullying in Korea. They interview Professor CedarBough Saeji, who is a professor of Korean Studies, and who has lived and taught in Korea for many years, and the resulting conversation is both thoughtful and thought-provoking, as they explore the multiple factors at play in this issue which has been grabbing a great deal of media attention of late.
I noticed that quite a few of you had questions and thoughts about the bullying issue when I posted my thoughts on Ji Soo’s fall from grace, so I thought this would be a great follow-up.
