This looks fun! Gender-bender drama 'Tale of Nok-Du' releases its first teaser



Based on a webtoon, the historical rom-com is about a man named Jeon Nok Du (played by Jang Dong Yoon) who disguises himself as a woman to enter a mysterious all-female community. There, he will meet Dong Dong Joo (played by Kim So Hyun), a gisaeng-in-training who wants to be anything but a gisaeng (female courtesan).

i looove gender bender dramas so i definitely want to check this out but i'm so behind on my dramas i'm not sure where i'd find the time! also i've been a bit too reliant on netflix for kdramas lately, what sites do you use to watch subtitled dramas online?

I still have Viki. I have checked out Netlfix, but I find their translations lacking. They really miss a lot of the culture in my opinion. For example, they translate Oppa (오빠) as the name of the person. Bugs me.

that's what i find a lot of official translation do actually.

yeah netflix's translator's definitely aren't always the best unfortunately, especially for a huge company like netflix. fan made translations are usually much more accurate interestingly enough. fortunately i understand korean well enough to not miss (most of) these cultural aspects in language, so it doesn't bother me too much for me to sacrifice netflix's convenience for better translations, but secretly it bothers me too.

i used viki back in the day! but at some point they started using a paywall for some dramas i think? i should check it out again

I tend to really like gender bender dramas, so I look forward to seeing if this is a good one :)
I feel like it's usually a girl dressing as a boy though, so it'll be interesting to see how this turns out.

My cute little chipmunk boy! I'm happy for him getting lead roles and this looks fun.

lol i was surprised to see the guy really looks like a girl in the promo pic. but in this teaser he just looks like a pretty boy.

he looks super boyish ... I mean, genderbending is usually suspension of belief, but like super boy.
