Jackson the Ah-dorable

15 Mar

roommate season 2

If you listen to the podcast, you’ll know that there is a new Stephanie obsession in town–and his name is Jackson. Finally, after lots and lots of pressure, I finally gave in. It was more “Fine, whatever–GOSH!”

Why did I resist for so long? It’s kind of the same reason I can’t watch We Got Married. I’m cool with regular life variety like Return of Superman and challenge variety like Running Man and Barefoot Friends (you know, before it got boring) but the set up sort of variety where you have to suspend your belief that the whole thing isn’t super duper fake. I was able to push past my ugh for the first couple of episodes of the Song Jae Rim and Kim So Eun couple on We Got Married, but once I got attached, and then remember it was not real? I just couldn’t make myself watch anymore.

Does that make sense?

How does this pertain to Roommate? Well, it was the feeling I got off it and the fact that I heard that they were pushing lovelines. Ooh, awkward fake non-romances that I have to pretend to believe extend off the stage? Ummm nope. Then in season two where they actually billed it as people dealing with painful pasts? Well, I dislike that even more than the fake romances. Continue reading

3 Dec

This is the first podcast done on my new laptop! Let me tell you the ways I hate Windows 8. Lots of them. Yep, that about covers it. However, that didn’t stop us from putting out an almost, close to stellar podcast episode.

Thirteen? Is it unlucky thirteen? We certainly hope not! In response to a voicemail, Cherry and I try to disagree more — or maybe that was just me — and just wait until you hear how many dramas I made my way through the last two weeks.

NO JUDGEMENTS!

Liars Game Via We Got Married

28 Oct

Liars gameWhat an addiction to a variety show makes.

If you guys missed my admission on the podcast, I’ll admit here to you now the, frankly, embarrassing news. I watched We Got Married Actually it’s worst than having randomly watched a single episode. Are you ready for this?

I’m now hooked.

That’s right, the show I swore to never watch–like never-ever–like never in a cold day in hell ever. Yeah. I caved. Worse than that, not only did I cave, I now eagerly await, possibly even crave each episode. I blame Cherry Cordial.

However. I give this admission with the caveat that I still stand with–I’m only watching the 19+ couple and that’s it. For real.

But for now? I’m good and stuck on this adorable pair. I want them to get married for real and have lots of dorky, cat loving, adorable babies–yep–I’ve become one of those people too.

When Song Jae Rim admitted he had no idea who his wife Kim So Eun was (is?), I completely understood. Back when Cherry Cordial was trying to get me to watch, she described her as “the friend from Boys Over Flowers“. And how many years ago was that exactly?

It turns out she’s been working steadily ever since, in drams like Horse Doctor, After School Bokbulbok , A Thousand Kisses, and The Man Who Can’t Get Married. Even now, she is starring in the current tvN drama, Liars Game.

Crazy For Kdrama Podcast Episode 11: Kdrama’s Second Season

22 Oct

Episode 11! I’m trying so hard to make these shorter — it’s possible I’m fighting a losing battle. I literally cut 45 minutes from this episode. What can I say, Cherry and I are chatty, chatty, chatty. I’m so excited to actually be able to contribute something to the ‘what we’re watching’ section — it’s possible the anticipated shame of announcing I hadn’t seen anything made me sit down and watch something. So, yay!
