    KDMEO Episode 161 - Tale of the Nine Tailed (구미호뎐) 9-12

    KDMEO Episode 161 - Tale of the Nine Tailed (구미호뎐) 9-12

    EVIL JIAH > REGULAR DUMMY JIAH. Judy and Linda desperately need better rules in episodes 9-12 of “Tale of the Nine Tailed” (구미호뎐), a TVN supernatural romance starring Lee DongWook, Jo BoAh and Kim Bum.
    HOT TAKE: JiAh's parents should never have been allowed to come back. We suspect even the drama writer doesn't like the character of JiAh (Jo BoAh). Kim Bum did not have enough screentime in these episodes, which is a huge bummer.
    TVN is taking some extra time to fix up the final four episodes, so we'll be back in three weeks to cover the finale!

    KDMEO Episode 159 - Tale of the Nine Tailed (구미호뎐) 2-4

    KDMEO Episode 159 - Tale of the Nine Tailed (구미호뎐) 2-4

    HOW IS KIM BUM OUR FAVOURITE RIGHT NOW? Judy and Linda felt gleeful during episodes 2-4 of “Tale of the Nine Tailed” (구미호뎐), a TVN supernatural romance starring Lee DongWook, Jo BoAh and Kim Bum.
    We were so disappointed by the kiss between Yeon (Lee DongWook) and AhEum (Jo BoAh) in the flashback. This HAS to get better, right? Kim Bum's ability to switch between douchiness and vulnerability is really impressing us. Linda watched a significant portion of the episodes through her fingers because of the horror. Happy Halloween, everyone!

    KDMEO Episode 158 – Fall 2020 First Impressions

    KDMEO Episode 158 – Fall 2020 First Impressions

    WELCOME TO SEASON 4 OF K-DRAMA MY EYES OUT!
    Judy, Linda and Teresa are excited to talk about the hottest Korean dramas of Fall 2020!
     
    Digressions:
    1:40 - New Patreon donors and Listener E-mails!
    7:37 - ***SPOILERS*** Follow-up on "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" (사이코지만 괜찮아)
    20:45 - Judy did NOT finish "Was It Love" (우리, 사랑했을까)
    23:51 - Teresa tried out some slice of life animes: "A Place Further than the Universe" (宇宙よりも遠い場所), "Laid-Back Camp" (ゆるキャン△)
    25:14 - Linda watched the controversial "Emily in Paris"
    28:33 - Judy is hooked on the unapologetically Canadian "Murdoch Mysteries"
    33:01 - Linda discovered that Park SoDam does not make "Cinderella and the Four Knights" (신데렐라와 네 명의 기사) worth watching
    39:03 - Seriously, what is up with Subway?
     
    35:58 - "Record of Youth" (청춘기록) is a TVN drama about chasing your dreams and stars Park BoGum, Park SoDam and Byeon WooSeok. Linda wishes that it had more interesting material for Park BoGum and Park SoDam to sink their teeth into.
    56:07 - "The School Nurse Files" (보건교사 안은영) is a super quirky Netflix original series based on a Korean web novel. It stars Jung YuMi and Nam JooHyuk as refreshingly normal-looking staff at a high school. BUFFY VIBES, said everyone at the Netflix party we hosted.
    1:03:40 - "Tale of the Nine Tailed" (구미호뎐) is a glossy supernatural series starring Lee DongWook and Jo BoAh. Lee DongWook is excellent as a world-weary nine-tailed fox who gave up his powers for love. Can it be as good as Goblin?
    1:25:40 - "Private Lives" (사생활) is a JTBC drama that lured us in with SeoHyun from Girls' Generation and Go GyungPyo. What we wanted and expected was a sexy show about con artists doing heists. What JTBC says it's giving us is something about corporate corruption? We'll probably keep watching for SeoHyun's wigs and outfits and Go GyungPyo's boyish good looks.
     
    Some Korean terms:
    여우고개: [yeo-oo-go-gae] fox mountain pass.
     
    Audio credits:
    Masato Nakamura - "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" - "Emerald Hill"

    Listener e-mails sometimes work, you guys! Linda and I happened to be watching this drama and decided to record about it. Teresa is enjoying the well-deserved summer break. We tried our best to keep our jibber jabber to ***VERY MILD SPOILERS***.

    KDMEO Episode 156 - 100 Days My Prince (100일의 낭군님) 9-16

    KDMEO Episode 156 - 100 Days My Prince (100일의 낭군님) 9-16

    FINALLY, SOME CLOSURE! Judy, Linda and Teresa binged on episodes 9-16 of “100 Days My Prince” (100일의 낭군님), a TVN drama starring Do KyungSoo (D.O. from EXO) and Nam JiHyun.
    Back in 2018, Judy and Teresa covered the first 8 episodes of "100 Days My Prince" before DramaFever imploded. The drama finally came to Viki this year and Judy basically forced Linda and Teresa to watch it, because we hate leaving things unfinished. If you want to listen to us talk about the first half of this drama, that's in KDMEO episodes 103-107.
    We're taking a break for the rest of the summer, but let us know what you would like to watch for the Netflix Party!
    Digressions:
    1:25 - New Patreon donor and Listener E-mails!
    17:36 - Judy binged all of "Indian Matchmaking"
    19:14 - Teresa continues her anime binge with "Steins;Gate" (シュタインズ・ゲート)
    21:17 - Studio Ghibli is on Netflix!!!
    22:53 - Linda is enjoying "Anne with an E"
     
    Some Korean terms:
    못할것도 없지: [mot-hal-geot-do-eop-ji] "There's nothing to stop me".
     
    Audio credits:
    Siyeon (Dreamcatcher) - "Into The Ring" - "Good Sera"
    Kanako Ito - "Steins;Gate" - "Fatima"
    Azumi Inoue - "My Neighbour Totoro" - "Tonari no Totoro"
    Tragically Hip - "Anne with an E" - "Ahead By A Century"
