    yay! part two!! city hunter discussion time!

    • 1.1 Stacey Lim

      Does anyone think that Lee Min Ho is like a Korean Ashton Kutcher?

      • 1.1.1 polycolor

        You mean Ashton Kutcher is like an American Lee Min Ho?

        • Nano


          • entertained

            please let’s not put them in the same breathe together. ashton kutcher is smarmy, greasy, and tries waaaaay tooooooooo hard.

      • 1.1.2 Celexa

        NO … not even a comparison!

        • Cynthia

          Okay – maybe there would be the TINIEST comparison between these two if I found out that Lee Min-ho had the same penchant for older noonas like Ashton does.

          ‘Cause then I could justify my lust for a younger than moi His Hotness…


        • delicatecloud

          I agree!! Not comparable people please!

      • 1.1.3 Maymay

        Korean Ashton Kutcher???

        No Way!!!!!

        I can never take Ashton seriously. Maybe Heath Ledger.

  2. stratosphere

    Yay! your podcasts are awesome

  3. sequestial

    Your drunkeness is delightful as always.

    • 3.1 Molly

      Your (drunken) laughter made me giggle nonstop with you! Love the podcasts, adored this one.

      Javabeans and Girlfriday, if you were to write the screenplay for City Hunter Season 2, you should have the PD pay you in Lee Min-ho hugs. Or kisses. Or…let’s keep this PG. 😉

      • 3.1.1 riin

        oh, I second that!!

        Lee Minho~!

  4. dany

    Lee Min-ho!

  5. Raine

  12. 12 martha

  13. 13 Maje

    Javabeans, Is City Hunter the most commented drama here on dramabeans? i can see over 500 comments in every recap.

    • 13.1 Venus

      Maje TOTALLY RECOMMEND….and not just 500 commets, every even episode we go atleast 700 commets… 😀

  14. 14 Linh

    I totally enjoy your ‘tipsiness’. Thanks for the laugh. I agree with the trifecta factor in City Hunter, although I think it has the ‘tetrafecta’ because I think the OST is awsome.

    • 14.1 Linh

      …meant trifactor

  15. 15 ...

    yay! the 2nd one! thank u guys!

  16. 16 sammy

    you guys totally crack me up with your impression of Lee Min Ho. If I was 15, i would totally be crushing on him…so glad in a way that i’m a noona! Like you, i can’t wait for Lee Min Ho to grow into his frame…but it could be that his awkwardness and dorkiness is so lovable!…..you guys are just so cute fan girls….

  17. 17 Ace

    Write Season 2, please!!! Get in touch with the PD! I support you JB & GF if when you make it happen!!!

  18. 18 olsen

      • 18.2.1 Celexa

        Yes… its JB and GF… tipsy squeeing on LMH!!

        I wish I had a friend I could get drunk with and squee away on LMH!

        • smashingalou

          oh girls, me too! first time DB’s podcast’s caught my attention as soon as LMH is pictured in it..then I saw City hunter then LMH hotness and I’m just hooked…

          Oh my eyes are just full of tears because of laughter listening to Gf and JB, hahaha! they just cracked me up…

          And what’s more adorable, they’re talking about oh-so-cause-of-our-craziness, LEE MIN HO, CITY HUNTER!!! Yey!!

          • mykdramaself

            and we didn’t even notice the 40 something minutes passing us by….more city hunter podcasts!

    • 18.3 astoldbyannabanana

      my exact thoughts!

    • 18.4 sean

      ahahaha, same. but for me it was because i never really understood what a podcast was…. but I love their humor :$

  19. 19 Bluefyre

    I LOVE this! And yay it’s longer! Can’t wait for the next one! You make my day 😀

    “You almost killed my father, prepare to die!”


    • 19.1 Maymay

      The Princess Bride…I love that movie so much.

      That would be a good line for YJ to say to CH at the end of episode 18.

  20. 20 samgetang

    All 30 minutes just for City Hunter and Lee Min Ho? Awesome!

    More! More! More! 🙂

    • 20.1 samgetang

      Oh! It IS more than 30 minutes of His Hotness, hahaha!

      • 20.1.1 Qd

        *virtually fans samgetang* Hope this cools you done from all the hotness! lol Looks like I should watch City Hunter!

        Hugs samgetang! sorry! I forgot ‘you are too hot’! LOL

        • samgetang

          Oh, JB and GF! You are the funniest and wackiest there is! Ive had this wide grin on my face that refused to be wiped out from the start to 47:55.

          Honestly, your fangirling of Lee Min Ho had me in stitches! JB : “I cant marry a concept…” hahaha! GF: “I will sell my soul for LMH!”

          OMG! You both crack me up…

          LMH growing into the confidence of a CSW, yeah!

          Then JB’s drink got spilled and all. LOL!

          I think Im drunk from all your laughter….thanks, guys!!!!

          Qd!!!!! Yes, do watch City Hunter…fast!

          • samgetang

            Funny but yes, after episode 12 I wanted so badly for any of the characters to DIE, too!!!!! They just made them go into coma…it took off the edge of the show for me, too. Maybe in the next episodes we will see some really dark serious angst 🙂

          • samgetang

            Is it the wine that made you oh so blood-thirsty? 🙂

          • Maymay

            Bloodthirsty indeed! We are all turning into vampires.

  21. 21 corn tea

    The sight of of these letter L E E M I N H O sends a thunder bolt lightening through my head!

    • 21.1 Venus

      TOTALLY AGREE!!! ….I just see that face and I totally melt speciallly that dorky smile of his… 😀

      • 21.1.1 smashingalou

        yey! me too, me too.. we girls are so totally crazy…hehe!

        • Maymay

          Yeah, just seeing his face on the home page turn me into a puddle of goo.

          By the way, how come DB has no City Hunter or Lee Min Ho headers?

  22. 22 Lemon

    I LOVE THIS! It’s always a delight to listen to your podcasts when I’m lazing around in my room. I’m downloading it now and I can’t wait to hear it later!

  23. 23 Maymay

  25. 25 lebcora

    Like everyone else, I just want to say THANKS for these awesome podcasts! I also want to thank you for putting the times for each topic discussion. We have not been watching CH yet (I know, crazy?) and have been trying really hard not to hear specifics. But any chance to talk JJ Abrams and Joss Whedon – you’re on!

  26. 26 mykdramaself

    I had so much fun listening to you guys and i could just imagine how much fun it would be to drink with you…and of course i love the city hunter gushing!!! You’re doing it all for us and for our love of city hunter. and like you up there, i’m wishing wishing wishing for season 2. i think am gonna love city hunter for a long time: the OST too!!!(so this is really how it feels to be so in love with a show!)

    lets drink to that some more!

  27. 27 Arhazivory

    lol. So this is the City Hunter podcast then.

  28. 28 coconutjuice

    Haha I’m spending the morning of my birthday listening to you two 🙂

    • 28.1 omo_omo

      Hope you had a blast birthday coconutjuice 🙂

      • 28.1.1 coconutjuice

        Thank you! Hehe I did!

  29. 29 Celexa

    I love your Podcasts! Thanks for making my morning workload a breeze!

  30. 30 bluelime

    thanks for podcast part 2!! =)

    this really made my day!! <3

  31. 31 Cynthia

    Okay – just listening to the two of you fangirling over Lee Min-ho while drunky-poo is priceless!

    Now I can’t wait for the final podcast #3 – I just envision the last few minutes of hearing nothing but you two giggling incoherently and then silence – cause you would have honored that Korean time-honored mantra of “Let’s drink till we pass out!”.

    Ladies, we are proud of you – and thanks for including my JJBrahams in your discussion, it was much appreciated!

    Oh, and before I forget – I sympathize with your bloodthirsty tendencies where City Hunter is concerned, but ep. 1 had lots of murder and mayhem, plus the fact that FauxDaddy, JP, offed three people in the hospital with his handy-dandy cane/sword. I know – it’s just not enough….*sigh*. As long as YS, NaNa or Ajusshi don’t bite the Big One, I’m okay with more going to Kdrama heaven.

    Thanks again for the giggles!

    • 31.1 omo_omo

      I agree Cynthia. I think the death that JB and Girlfriday were looking for, happened in Episode 1, 20 deaths of them and a lot more… So its ok, no more deaths for me 😉

  32. 32 scarlet

    yes finally this podcast is up! and its all about city hunter, or LEE MIN HO from the response? Can’t wait, dlownloading NOW!!!

  33. 33 Silver

    “If I’m selling my soul, might as well get my money’s worth” LOL That had me literally laughing out loud. Someone came to ask what was so funny.That is SUCH a Lee Min Ho-induced thing to say :D.

  34. 34 miki

    Hi I was just wondering since you like shows like Buffy, Alias, Veronica Mars, and hot guys, Have you guys tried out Super Natural? I guess the writing is not as strong as Buffy but it still a very good show especially starting at season 2. Also, have you guys heard of Friday Night Lights? I guess its nothing like above shows but its a really well written / acted drama. The series just ended last week but I think its worth checking out on DVDs.

    • 34.1 girlfriday

      Deangirl, present!

      I stopped watching Supernatural and Friday Night Lights when they both went south (SN after Sam “died,” and FNL after the original cast/team graduated, I was out.)

      • 34.1.1 mastille

        Sorry, breaking my silence to comment after seeing the words SUPERNATURAL…

        So you stopped after season 2? I totally hear you – the first two seasons were the best for me – ESPECIALLY season 1. Despite the fact that it was a season 1. It was scary, but still fun. Each episode was much scarier than episodes in later seasons.

        Then they tried to make a plot that was complex and “godly” on paper, but I don’t really think the show was as good at being ‘epic’ in scope as just being a ‘monster of the week + family/brother-centered’ drama. It basically became a different show – with its own merits, but different.

        And I am a SAMGIRL… (well from the first two seasons too…) and that’s the only American TV show I watched because my friend brought over the DVD set… sad…

        After six seasons of that show I don’t know if I’d sell my soul… but LEE MIN HO is HAWTTT. And awesome as his possibly dorky self and as City Hunter. I feel like a 15 year old girl watching him. I’m just soooo happy for him that he got this role finally, after the er not quite critically-acclaimable BOF and the mess that was PT. I either want a season 2 or for Yoon Sung to… DIEEEEEEEEEE
        *runs for cover*

        And suuuuuuure you’re both watching for plot more than the actors… =P I agree though, Story of a Man is in my mind possibly the best out there (or one of the top) because the plot and directing are just superb. And it is as balllllsy as City Hunter is not (yet). Case and point, THAT ending…

  35. 35 omo_omo

    I totally love that you are having fun while you are discussing these dramas.
    Cheers! Gan bei ladies ^__^
    Would love to drink with you gals and all the kdrama lovers around here.

  36. 36 mems

    I’m listening to this while ironing…and you guys are cracking me up! 😀

    I really hope the powers-that-be can somehow listen to your pleas for a Season 2 with your ideas implemented. How awesome would that be?

  37. 37 Tash

    I love your podcasts so much that I had to listen to this one at lunch (instead of going out)…thanks!!

  38. 38 thameryst

    I know about the being glad to be a noona. I’m not actually a noona to LMH (if being a noona means being older than him) but I’m glad I’m at this age b/c I know if I was just a couple of years younger my obsession and absorption with incomparable beauty would actually cause me physical pain. Well, at least it would be an even more consuming obsession, if that’s even possible.

  39. 39 corn tea

    “he is like this old dork trapped in a gorgeous body”–love it!

  40. 40 Venus

    YESSSSSSSSSSSS Pod Cast toatally dedicated for City Hunter and his HOTNEZZZ LMH…..I’m sooo dowloading this now…this should keep me entertain till tomorrow….thanks JB/GF for this awesome pod cast….. 😀 😀

    I swear only LMH can make me feel like a 15 yr old again and mind you I’m a noona..but that the power of mr. Hotnes.

  41. 41 ally bell

    hey JB and GF, I love ur ideas for season two so if they don’t make a season 2 can u please write a fan-fiction because ur beginning sounds awesome and now i want to know “what next?”…so if they don’t make a season two then i would love for u guys to do fan-fiction and u could maybe put one chapter/part every week. That would be really cool.

  42. 42 stardust

    I just want to say: I like your ideas for season 2!!
    in fact, ever since episode 5, i started to feel that city hunter could go beyond 1 season and my mind wandered to how i think it should be done too! The current season is almost just like a prelude / beginnings. I can SO totally imagining them leaving an open ending and starting off season 2 with YS and ahjussi (thats why they can’t kill him, he has to be the sidekick in season 2) in their dingy office, taking up cases and bickering along the way. I am so for NANA not being there because people would expect that. and YS to evolve to be the city hunter the anime/manga is like, the flirty badass playboy who uses his looks (and brain/skills) to get what he wants and solve cases. The shallow exterior covering up for the sensitive good boy he is (we all know lee min ho can do this so well) Somehow along the way, Nana is with someone else (well, he did ask her to find some one didnt he, so reap what you sow dude!) and they could weave in the plotline about how he still cares for her. whatever..actually it would be great if they kill her off (i agree that if they did in that episode that she got shot, it would have propelled this drama to my all time “great” list. but then again, i was half wishing (that they had the balls to do it) but biting my nails hoping that it wont happen. I like park min young enough, shes not as great an actor as lee min ho or the rest but what she does works for me. she’s likeable and they are cute together so it was hard i suppose for the script to kill her off. but honestly her death (esp at the end of season1) would create more intensitiy and story for YS character to develop. she would always remain his first love, which hero doesnt have someone dear buried deep in his heart? Awwwww…it makes so much sense on paper but here again, i think maybe ..dont kill her just make her leave him and leave the story open yeah..hahaha show is making me schizo…

    • 42.1 corn tea

      Hero’s first love always die, look at 007, his first love Vasper died, then look at Batman, Rachel Dawes died…

      I am in favor of YS all by himself in the second season with his heart scarred, oh imagine how LMH would act out those torturous moments whenever he remembers NN.

      Now is the time I wish I am as rich as Gu Jun Pyo then I can just pay to get season 2 made.

    • 42.2 r

      If she dies then we will see the beginning of Angel Heart (the spin off of city hunter).

  43. 43 stardust

    and please i have to add this: Lee Min Ho is soooooo HOT! Gosh, i cant understand how he is like only 23 or 24? This guy OWNS the screen whenever he appears. This is a face meant for stardom, and boy can he act. Give a man a mask that covers 3/4 of his face (minus the great hair of course) and still he is able to make his eyes talk. And yes He’s making me feel like a PERVERT while i gush of his hotness. Kid has a shining future, just need to make the right choices in his next few projects. He definately has the versitlity to expand his acting chops in different roles.

    • 43.1 lw

      totally agree! i thought he was just a pretty face before this and wasnt keen on city hunter. but boy he can ACT… even better than hyun bin at 24 in KSS

  44. 44 Maymay

    OMG!!!!!!! I’m really itching to know what you guys come up with for a season 2. If we never get our season 2, will you (JB and GF) post your story online for us fans to enjoy. After listening to your podcast, I’m really dying to know why Nana is no longer with YS?

  45. 45 smashingalou

    I love you GF and JB…

    “It’s not a perfect show.. but it’s magical!’

    Oh so true…., so true 🙂

  46. 46 sb

    Thanks, girls! Always enjoy listening to your podcasts. 🙂

    I doubt we’ll ever see What’s Up, unfortunately, since Daesung of Big Bang committed involuntary vehicular manslaughter.

  47. 47 Thatgirl

    Yes!!!! Finally!!!! I’ve been waiting for you guys to talk about City Hunter!!!! Its funny, since City Hunter aired every Wednesday and Thursday, I am stalking this site for City Hunter recaps, then Podcast #7 comes out and I am stalking your site again for you guys to talk about City Hunter in your podcast. I always feel the need to clap every time I watch, read or just hear about City Hunter too.

    I honestly don’t want City Hunter to end either, but… I almost feel like another season could just soiled the Awesomeness of this season.

    Lol!!!! Now you guys can see how us die-hard fangirls feel! Lee Minho Love Forever!!!!! x)

    I have a question, it was brought up by a reader of recap #10 that Minho can’t go into the Army because of his leg injury…. So, can someone please shine some light on that and explain to me if he can or can’t? Originally I didn’t want him to go, due to selfish reasons, but then after watching I think it was episode 10 and hearing (well more like reading) that speech about protecting the youth of Korea, I kinda want him to go. I think it would totally be an honor for him to go…

    Yes, City Hunter is always one step ahead of us… I like it, but then I don’t like it… Cause, see, I’m kinda slow, and I want a chance to marvel at the Awesomeness that just happened before I want anything else to happen. I feel like a bunch of Awesomeness is being thrown at me all at once and it is hard for me to rap my head around what just happened, nonetheless have anytime to appreciate it…

    Yeah… You’re right… there should be death… But then… with what has been happening so far in the show, I think they are saving the deaths for Yoon Sung or Nana… Thus crushing any hope of another season… I’m preparing myself for that… 🙁 Although… no matter how I look at it, it seems like Mother dearest is going to die. Nana’s dad dearest needs to die… Either way the 4 baddies… are dying, its just a shame we don’t get to see them die. Because aren’t the first 2 baddies dead already? And its only a matter of time before Kim Shik Jong dies, I think he’s only in a coma for Nana’s benefit, with her dad still in a coma and all. And then, the 4th baddy, who I still can’t seem to take seriously as a baddy because just before City Hunter he played Shin Ji Hyun’s awesome loving dad; now… he for sure is going to die, and I am hoping for the worst death possible because he is definitely the worst.

    Ok, well, I think I am done now…

    • 47.1 HeadsNo2

      I remember hearing about him having leg problems in BoF but he’s doing a lot of running, jumping, running, jumping, fighting in City Hunter. Wouldn’t that not show up well if later he claims he’s not well enough for army duty? :/ I don’t know a lot about it but I am a huge Lee Min Ho fan so I don’t want Korea to have any reason to be mad at him if he doesn’t go later. 🙁

    • 47.2 will work for soju

      I think he’ll still have to go but may do civil service instead of active duty. Kim Nam-gil was in a similar situation – a bad car accident in his early youth – and is now pushing papers for the military. Doesn’t exactly build up those abs!

  48. 48 niza

    aaaahhhhh…I have Lee Min Ho Widhrawal syndrome..:-)

    • 48.1 niza

      aaaahhhhh…I have Lee Min Ho Withdrawal syndrome..:-)

    • 48.2 Thatgirl

      Why don’t you watch his other dramas?

      • 48.2.1 niza

        i did..:-)

  49. 49 Lidia

    At the time, I didn’t want Nana to die. But watching the last few episodes, I wish she had died. I feel that the tone of the drama has changed from “will-City-Hunter-bring-justice-to-the-group-of-five” to “will-Yoonsung-live-to-get-the-girl.” I feel like the drama focuses too much on the romantic angst instead of the revenge aspect. While I enjoy City Hunter, I just can’t say that I love it–that shift in trajectory disappointed me too much. Don’t get me wrong, Yoon-Sung and Nana are cute together and I like what Nana means to Yoon-Sung, but I’m less interested in romance than in revenge. So if Nana had died, it would have been awesome for the revenge story.

  50. 50 Noelle

    Yes. I love your guys podcasts. Can’t wait to listen.
