We analyze the extreme reactions Korean people are having to the threat of Coronavirus, try to bullshit each other in our new game, "What's Not Real," and, with "Parasite" receiving global attention during this year's award season, we discuss movie-going and Korean cinema.
UPDATE: Some of our conversation about Coronavirus hasn't aged well, but this was recorded Feb. 2 and at the time there were only a handful of cases in Korea. It wasn't until weeks later that the outbreak happened in Daegu that threatened the country. Our conversation accurately represents the moment we were in, but things changed quickly in the following weeks. Please don't misinterpret us as being dismissive of the severity of the virus. Stay safe and we hope you enjoy the episode!
