    KDMEO Episode 188 - Little Forest (리틀 포레스트)

    KDMEO Episode 188 - Little Forest (리틀 포레스트)

    TAKE SOME TIME TO DO SOMETHING WHOLLY FOR YOURSELF. Judy and Linda mellow out to 2018's "Little Forest" (리틀 포레스트), starring Kim TaeRi, Ryu JunYeol, Moon SoRi and Jin KiJoo.
    Our next episode will be about "My Liberation Notes" (나의 해방일지), starring Kim JiWon, Lee El, Lee MinKi and Son SeokKoo. 
     
    Digressions:  

    1:32 - New Patreon donor and Listener E-mails!
    14:08 - ***NO SPOILERS*** Judy is starry-eyed over brooding Ewan McGregor in "Obi-Wan Kenobi".
    18:19 - ***SPOILER ALERT*** Linda and Judy watched all of "Moon Knight" and liked Oscar Isaac in it despite finding the rest of it confusing and somewhat forgettable. 
    23:34 - Judy watched the miniseries "Why Didn't They Ask Evans?", based on the Agatha Christie novel, and adapted by Hugh Laurie. Check it out if you enjoy an old-fashioned mystery. 
    43:38 - Click here to watch Kim TaeRi's travel vlog. Sadly no English captions yet!

    KDMEO Episode 187 - Spring 2022 First Impressions

    KDMEO Episode 187 - Spring 2022 First Impressions

    YOWZA. ANYONE ELSE NEED CHEERING UP? Judy and Linda watched a bunch of kdramas for spring First Impressions!
    For our next episode, we're going to watch 2018's "Little Forest" (리틀 포레스트), starring Kim TaeRi, Ryu JunYeol and Moon SoRi. 
     
    Digressions:  

    1:38 - Listener E-mails!
    12:13 - Judy and Linda were properly destroyed by "Encanto" from Pixar. 
    15:11 - "Malcolm in the Middle" is on Disney+ and Judy loves it so much. 
    16:26 - Judy tried out "Search: WWW" (검색어를 입력하세요 WWW) and is intrigued. 
     
    17:52 - "Business Proposal" (사내 맞선) is an SBS romantic comedy based on a webtoon, which started off promising but then devolved into typical trope-y nonsense. Kim SeJeong, Seol InAh and Kim MinGyu are fantastic and we will continue to follow their work, but the latter half of this was decidedly disappointing.
    25:07 - "Our Blues" (우리들의 블루스) is a TVN series in omnibus format, about a small community in Jeju Island. The massive cast is crammed with so many talented actors and we're looking forward to learning more about their characters' individual stories.
    37:25 - You can't get any fluffier than "Shooting Stars" (별똥별), a TVN series starring Lee SungKyung and Kim YoungDae. It's an easy watch, if you just want to watch Lee SungKyung being charming as heck.
    44:38 - "My Liberation Notes" (나의 해방일지) is a super relatable  and depressing drama from JTBC, starring Kim JiWon, Lee El, Lee MinKi and Son SeokKoo. Don't get us wrong. The cast is wonderful and we are loving it, but wow does it get us down.
     

    Some Korean terms:  

    사극: [sa-geuk] historical drama.
    기러기 아빠: [gi-reo-gi-ah-ppa] literally "goose father"; term for fathers left behind in Korea while the mothers and children move overseas for education purposes.
    형님: [hyung-nim] respectful way of addressing older male friends from men. 
    뭐라고 하지: [mweo-ra-go-ha-ji] "Whaddya call it".
     
    Audio credits:
    Lin-Manuel Miranda - "Encanto" - "Waiting On A Miracle"
    They Might Be Giants - "Boss Of Me"

    KDMEO Episode 186 - Twenty-Five, Twenty-One (스물다섯, 스물하나) 13-16

    KDMEO Episode 186 - Twenty-Five, Twenty-One (스물다섯, 스물하나) 13-16

    WE HAVE THOUGHTS. Judy and Linda mourn episodes 13-16 of "Twenty-Five, Twenty-One" (스물다섯, 스물하나), starring Kim TaeRi and Nam JooHyuk. It was great while it lasted. 
    Our next episode will be about the popular series, "Business Proposal" (사내 맞선) starring Kim SeJeong, Ahn HyoSeop, Kim MinKyu and Seol InAh. If you have suggestions for the Spring First Impressions episode, you know where you contact us!
     
    Digressions:  

    1:26 - Listener E-mails!
    16:22 - Both Judy *and* Linda watched the second season of "Bridgerton". It was definitely better than the first season, but it does become slightly tedious near the end. But the dresses!!!
    22:07 - Judy watched "Turning Red", and it was fine. Perhaps Pixar has set our expectations too high, but somehow the ending felt trite to us. Is it too much for an animated movie to fix our real-life issues? 
    25:19 - Linda is almost done with "Business Proposal" (사내 맞선), and we'll be doing a special episode on it in two weeks.
    26:38 - Judy is enjoying the newest looter shooter from 2K, "Tiny Tina's Wonderlands". It's lighthearted goofy fun! Obviously, Judy's main is a Stabbomancer. 
    28:42 - "Moon Knight" is the newest Marvel series on Disney+. It's disorienting at times (on purpose), but so interesting!
    55:25 - What are we gonna watch now?
     

    Some Korean terms:  

    매국노: [meh-g**k-no] traitor that has sold out one's country.
    짜장면 [jja-jang-myeon]: black bean noodles; a favourite delivery food for Koreans. 
    이쁜이: [ee-ppeun-ee] cutie.
    함부로 말하지마: [ham-boo-roh-mal-ha-jee-ma] "Don't say things you're going to regret"; literally "don't talk recklessly".
    싸가지 없어: [ssa-ga-ji-up-suh] impolite; lacking in manners.
     
    Audio Credits:
    Ludwig Goransson - "Turning Red" - "Turning Red"
    BABYMETAL - "Gimme chocolate!!" (ギミチョコ!!)
    Hashem Nazih - "Moon Knight" - "Moon Knight"

    KDMEO Episode 185 - Twenty-Five, Twenty-One (스물다섯, 스물하나) 9-12

    KDMEO Episode 185 - Twenty-Five, Twenty-One (스물다섯, 스물하나) 9-12

    THEIR FORM WASN'T PERFECT BUT THEIR FOLLOW-THROUGH WAS ALRIGHT. Judy and Linda commentate on episodes 9-12 of "Twenty-Five, Twenty-One" (스물다섯 스물하나), starring Kim TaeRi and Nam JooHyuk.
     
    Digressions:  

    1:49 - Listener E-mails! There may be some "Boys Over Flowers" ranting.
    14:15 - Linda is all caught up on "Business Proposal" (사내 맞선), which is tongue-in-cheek rom-com fun!
    16:45 - Judy watched episode 7 of "Thirty, Nine" (서른, 아홉) and HOLY JEEBUS it was tedious and infuriating. We have officially given up on it.
    23:32 - Linda has finished watching all of "True Beauty" (여신강림), and it was dumb fun.
    25:23 - Judy is playing "Chicken Police - Paint it RED!", a Polish indie video game with surprising depth and production values. If you enjoy film noirs, it might be worth checking out!
    28:19 - Linda watched Pixar's latest film, "Turning Red", which is great, but it's missing a little something that she can't quite put her finger on.
    30:50 - ***SPOILER WARNING*** Linda watched "Spider-Man: No Way Home", which is fun but not as great as the first two movies starring Tom Holland.
    33:03 - On Apple TV+, there's a Broadway production of "Come From Away". Linda LOVED it.
    34:15 - "The Adam Project" is a typical fun Ryan Reynolds action movie.
    34:32 - Linda usually detests anything to do with "Romeo and Juliet" but she found Steven Spielberg's remake of "West Side Story" watchable for the dancing and singing.
    36:17 - Linda tried "How I Met Your Father", and does not recommend it.

    1:42 - Listener E-mails! We get some insider information about subtitle translations from our listeners.
    14:28~28:43 - ***MAJOR SPOILERS*** Our thoughts on "Thirty, Nine" (서른, 아홉) episode 2-6!
    37:51 - Judy could not find the pine bud drink, so she drinks what she assumes is the closest thing.

Entertaining

If you’re into K-dramas, this podcast is very entertaining. I just wish they make more of them. It’s good to have a recap of a drama you just watched. The hosts hit all of the highlights with their commentary. It’s a fun listen.

Kdrama My Eyes Out makes it worth it

The hosts have a mixture of knowledge and curiosity about Kdramas that is very entertaining. Sometimes, I’m so glad they slogged through a drama series just so I can get the cute/funny scene info without wasting the time on the rest.

karinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn ,

why is this podcast so annoying

I listened to it because I couldn't find another podcast where they watched the K-Drama I had been watching. They pick apart the absolute dumbest things and it's almost like they're willfully ignorant about parts of the story because they just want something to complain about? Like the intentions of certain scenes were incredibly obvious in the drama, but the hosts were asking "WhY iS tHiS iMpOrTaNt?!". It was hard to even get through the first few episodes. I honestly just have to stop listening because they go on and on with their annoying voices about things that actually do not matter at all or just are completely incorrect interpretations. You can have an opinion, but when you're blatantly ignoring parts of a storyline so that you can have something to whine about..it gets a little old. Sad, since I was looking forward to hearing people talk about dramas I was watching.
