Episode 144. For Valentine’s Day, we watched season one of the Korean drama series Love Alarm. Jojo’s high school is obsessed with a new app called Love Alarm that can read your feelings and “ring the alarm” of your crush whenever you come near them. Jojo doesn’t need an app to tell her how she’s feeling: she has a crush on the hottest boy in school, literal fashion model Sun-Oh, but may also be interested in Sun-Oh’s best friend Hye-Jeong. As we follow these characters over four years, the world around them is still wondering who even developed Love Alarm and how it’ll change how people love each other.
