episode 2 of K-Drama School now available

I discuss the hit 2016-2017 show Goblin or Guardian the Lonely and Great God. Then my very funny guest Lizzy Cooperman and I have a chat. It’s a good time.

K-Drama School Podcast with Grace Jung

In 2009, I graduated into an economic recession with a BA in English literature. It took me almost 3 years until I was able to find a full-time job.

In 2021, I am graduating into another economic recession with a PhD in Cinema and Media Studies. In case I need to wait another 3 years to find a tenure-track job or a comedy writing gig, I am going to host my own podcast putting my media studies knowledge and comedic timing into productive use.
