Woohoo Waikiki: Episode 2

It is a great source of sorrow to me that screenshots just don’t do this show justice. You really just have to watch to get the full impact of the hilarious expressions, silly physical humor, and downright dangerous levels of cute we’re subjected to in the space of an hour. As the Waikiki boys start to accept Yoon-ah and little Sol as a part of their lives, things start to get a little crazy, and you really just have to see it to believe it.

 
EPISODE 2: “Anyone can become a wolverine/You know what? It’s a secret”

In the morning, Yoon-ah is startled to see Joon-ki with his face slathered in stage makeup. Seo-jin sighs and says he does that every morning, and he tells Yoon-ah that it’s because he’s an actor.

She’s impressed, but Doo-shik scoffs that he just stands in the background of scenes. He proudly informs Yoon-ah that he writes an online novel but his goal is to write scripts, only for Joon-ki to reveal that all he ever writes is other people’s resumes, ha.

Dong-gu wanders in and shushes their bickering, but Joon-ki snaps that at least they’ve never lit a movie set on fire trying to roast sweet potatoes. LOL. Dong-gu counters that it was potatoes, not sweet potatoes, and they get into a load fight over whether there’s a difference.

Eventually Seo-jin screams at them all to shut up, and she apologizes to Yoon-ah for the weird men who live in this house. Joon-ki says that she’s weirder than all of them, calling her “Chewbacca.” He starts to explain the nickname to Yoon-ah, but Seo-jin tackles him, sparking a four-way wrestle fight.

Watching the housemates yell at each other and smack each other with pillows, Yoon-ah wonders if it’s a good idea to stay here.

Baby Sol starts to fuss so Yoon-ah sits down to nurse. That ends the fighting in seconds, as they turn away and whisper to each other that Yoon-ah is weirder than any of them.

Later Seo-jin sets the guys to cleaning the house, and they lay around like slugs instead. Keen to get out of the chores, Joon-ki bets Dong-gu and Doo-shik that he can’t put his pants on without using his hands. They think it’s impossible, so they’re shocked when he wiggles them up his legs in seconds without touching them. That’s worth at least two more replays.

Seo-jin breaks up the fun and they all run off to clean, even Joon-ki. Doo-shik mops the laundry room while Seo-jin puts in a load, and he asks how her job hunt is going. She says it’s not easy, but the thought of ending up like Doo-shik keeps her motivated, HA.

She runs off and finds Dong-gu vacuuming the same spot over and over again, lost in thought. He sighs that he and his girlfriend Soo-ah broke up, but she already knows all about it from Joon-ki. She advises her big brother to either give up, or try harder. He asks if she thinks he’s unreliable and has no future, and Seo-jin is all, Oh gee, look at the time.

She heads to the library as the guys wander to the kitchen where Yoon-ah’s doing the dishes. Joon-ki tells them that he’s shooting a movie today, a story similar to X-men, starring Jo In-sung.

He leaves, and as she’s saying goodbye, Yoon-ah drops a plate. Dong-gu gripes at her for being careless and reminds her that he hasn’t given her his permission to stay at the house yet. Yoon-ah promises to try harder, but when Sol wakes from her nap and cries, Dong-gu says he’ll clean the mess and sends her to tend to her baby.

Her gloves get stuck as she’s trying to take them off, then one comes free suddenly and smacks Dong-gu across the face, lol. Horrified, Yoon-ah tries to wipe off the soap but only succeeds in smearing more on him, and he sends her away. When Doo-shik says he’s just grouchy because of Soo-ah, Dong-gu blows up at him.

Joon-ki is made up in his character makeup, and PWAHAHA, he looks like a low-rent Wolverine. Unfortunately, Jo In-sung was in an accident, so they have to push back filming until tomorrow. The director tells Joon-ki to keep his makeup on overnight because it’s too expensive to redo it, warning that his role will be scrapped from the movie if he messes it up.

Poor Joon-ki is forced to ride the bus home looking like a wild animal. Because he’s also wearing long fake claws, he can’t even hold onto the strap, so he ends up striking a series of dramatic Wolverine poses as the bus makes sharp turns. At one stop, a man bumps into him, but he manages not to mess up his face.

At the guesthouse, Dong-gu comes on Joon-ki unexpectedly, and when he sees the monstrous makeup he reflexively snaps his towel in Joon-ki’s face. Doo-shik explains what happened and that Joon-ki has to save his makeup until tomorrow. Joon-ki’s phone rings, but he can’t answer it with his claws, so Doo-shik has to answer and hold the phone for him.

It’s the police, who inform him that the guy who bumped into his on the bus was a pickpocket, but they caught him and they have Joon-ki’s wallet. He heads off to the police station, still in his monster makeup.

Dong-gu finds the kitchen in a shambles, with all of their food out on the table. Yoon-ah explains that she was cleaning out the fridge when Sol started crying. He tells her to take care of Sol then clean up, asking her to be sure to dispose of one particularly nasty container of moldy mushrooms.

He stalks off growling at Doo-shik that this is all his and Joon-ki’s fault. Doo-shik offers to watch the baby while Yoon-ah finishes cleaning, and he lifts Sol over his head to coo at her. She projectile-vomits right into his mouth, but he handles it gracefully.

At the police station, Joon-ki’s makeup startles the cops so badly that they all jump, and one actually pulls a gun on him, LOL. Joon-ki explains about the monster makeup, but the detective is reluctant to hand over his wallet because he can’t recognize him from his ID photo.

They can’t do a fingerprint either, because of all the fake hair on his hands, and the detective tells Joon-ki that a DNA test isn’t exactly practical. Joon-ki has to go home without his wallet, and when Seo-jin comes into the kitchen and sees him, she shrieks and whacks him on the head with her book. Annoyed, he thanks for her at least not hitting him with the book’s spine.

Yoon-ah serves a delicious-looking mushroom stew for lunch, but poor Joon-ki can’t even hold a spoon with his clawed hands. He pleads to Yoon-ah for help, and a few minutes later he’s happily sipping his soup through a straw while wearing one of Sol’s bibs. PFFT, even baby Sol is shooting him some wicked side-eye.

Nobody notices the old, moldy mushrooms on the counter, now missing a few from the container.

Later, in the middle of another phone call begging Soo-ah to talk to him, Dong-gu feels an ominous rumble in his tummy. He rushes to the bathroom, only to find Doo-shik and Joon-ki there already, clutching their bellies and yelling at Seo-jin to hurry up. Dong-gu suddenly remembers the moldy mushrooms and Yoon-ah’s mushroom stew and connects the dots.

Yoon-ah didn’t eat the stew, so she’s horrified when Dong-gu yells at her that everyone is sick from the bad mushrooms. His stomach rolls again, and he tells Yoon-ah to pack her things and leave immediately. He runs from the house in search of a bathroom.

He goosesteps down the street to a public bathroom, but it’s out of order. Running off in a different direction, he nearly bowls over Soo-ah before he realizes who she is. Forgetting his emergency, he begs Soo-ah to stay and listen, so she gives him one minute.

Dong-gu fights to control his increasingly insistent bowels as he apologizes to Soo-ah. She wants to know what he’s sorry for, in detail, and she’s offended when he lets loose a loud fart right in the middle of his list of offenses. He falls while trying to keep her from walking away, and he’s helpless as she leaves him for good.

Fortunately, he soon sees some portable toilets and uses the first one to relieve his painful stomach. Unfortunately, they’re for sale and not hooked up, and the salesman pitches a fit when he realizes the mess Dong-gu made.

Once he can come out, Dong-gu humbly apologizes to the salesman. Yoon-ah wanders by, having gone out for medicine for everyone who ate her stew, and she’s adorably amused when she hears what happened. Dong-gu is obliged to buy the toilet and take it home, where he lies that he bought it so they’d have another bathroom.

While cleaning, Yoon-ah accidentally knocks over and breaks Dong-gu’s only writing award. Everyone braces themselves for the inevitable explosion, but Dong-gu shocks them all by sweetly telling Yoon-ah that it was just an accident, and to forget that he told her to leave the house. Only she knows that he’s allowing her to stay in exchange for her silence.

Joon-ki shocks passengers on the bus again on his way back to the movie set. Then he spots someone else from his movie, a guy in blue makeup and a mutant headpiece, and they salute each other in dignified solidarity.

In the middle of the night, Yoon-ah gets up to use the restroom. She catches Seo-jin at the mirror, shaving… her face. Later Seo-jin explains tearfully that when she was little, she copied her dad and brother’s shaving. It caused the hair on her face to grow in thick and dark, and now she has to shave twice a day (that explains the “Chewbacca” nickname).

Seo-jin cheers up when a friend calls to tell her that her longtime crush is on his way to the school library, and she bounces off to see him. Dong-gu fusses at Yoon-ah for running out of bread and eggs for the guests, and he reluctantly goes along when she admits that she doesn’t know how to get to the store.

Yoon-ah is distracted by a sale on toys, telling Dong-gu that she’s never bought Sol a toy. He takes pity on her and says that he’ll buy one for her, and he wanders off wondering if she’s just that shameless, or just that innocent.

He runs right into Soo-ah, who’s shopping with her new boyfriend, and Soo-ah says nervously that Dong-gu is just a friend. The boyfriend hands over his business card, introducing himself as YOON-SEOK and telling Dong-gu that he runs a Thai restaurant nearby.

Yoon-ah runs over, excited to show Dong-gu the toy she chose. Dong-gu grabs Yoon-ah, yanks her close, and informs Soo-ah that she’s his girlfriend (and HAHA, the look on Yoon-ah’s face). Soo-ah has the nerve to look offended that he’s dating already, so Dong-gu runs with it, saying that Yoon-ah is a doctor.

Yoon-seok seems like a nice fellow, and he invites Dong-gu and Yoon-ah to dinner at his restaurant tonight. Dong-gu says that his doctor girlfriend is much too busy and hustles Yoon-ah out of there. She’s figured out what’s going on, and she grins when Dong-gu says he’ll buy the toy for Sol if she keeps quiet.

They head back to the guesthouse and tell the guys what happened, and how Dong-gu lied that Yoon-ah is his girlfriend. Doo-shik sighs that it’s really over with Soo-ah, but Joon-ki thinks this is a fabulous chance for Dong-gu. Soo-ah sends Dong-gu a text just then, which Joon-ki sees as proof that she’s angry and jealous.

He’s positive that seeing Dong-gu with a pretty young doctor is making Soo-ah rethink her decision to break up with him. Dong-gu gets excited at the idea of a reconciliation, and he practically begs Yoon-ah to go along with Joon-ki’s plan — to take his so-called doctor girlfriend to dinner at Yoon-seok’s restaurant. She’s reluctant, but she caves when Dong-gu promises to forget every one of her mistakes.

Dong-gu cleans up pretty well, but he’s stunned speechless at the sight of Yoon-ah with her hair and makeup done. Doo-shik and Joon-ki dreamily tell her that she looks pretty, and when they prod Dong-gu to say something, he just stammers that she’s not too bad. She leaves Sol in their care, and Sol gives a loud celebratory toot when they cheer for her mommy (Joon-ki: “She’s a good daughter…”)

At the library, Seo-jin feverishly applies makeup on her chin and upper lip when she hears that her crush, Tae-hyun, is on the way. But he’s running late, so when he arrives, he finds her snoring in a puddle of drool, hee. He pretends he didn’t notice and says he’s glad to see her, and she offers to show him the new archive room.

He manages to find the first article Seo-jin ever wrote, and he says she should come work for his paper, but she tells him that she already applied and was rejected. He comforts her, saying that he didn’t get the job until his third try, and pats her encouragingly on the head. They start to leave, but naturally they’ve been locked in.

Dong-gu and Yoon-ah coordinate their stories and head into the Thai restaurant with determination. Soo-ah frowns at them as they cuddle at the table, and they’re startled when Yoon-seok orders in perfectly accented Thai. He offers them a drink, and Yoon-ah nearly ruins everything when she starts to say she can’t drink because she’s breastfeeding.

Thinking fast, Dong-gu says that she meant to say she has a surgery in the morning (the words sound similar). He brags proudly that she’s proficient in many specialties, and Soo-ah asks why she would fall for someone like him. Dong-gu can’t think of anything to say, but Yoon-ah comes to his rescue.

She tells them that she can see Dong-gu’s bright future as the best film director in the world. She gets a bit carried away and adds sadly that he hasn’t been able to open up to her yet, but he goes along with it and they pout at each other and hug.

Seo-jin and Tae-hyun are stuck in the archive room with everyone gone home for the night, but Tae-hyun says that he doesn’t mind it so much. He starts to say something that sounds like a confession, But he stops when she looks at him. Oh no, she has a five o’clock shadow.

Tae-hyun thinks there’s just something on her face, but a check in the mirror alerts Seo-jin that she needs to shave. Tae-hyun tries to confess again, but Seo-jin keeps one hand over her mouth and warns him to stay back, then tries desperately to escape the room.

After dinner, Dong-gu says loftily that the food wasn’t bad, though not as good as the authentic Thai food that they had in Bangkok, lol. He and Yoon-ah leave, congratulating each other on a successful operation.

Doo-shik, Joon-ki, and baby Sol are at home, riveted by a makjang drama on TV (and ha, Joon-ki parrots all the dramatic lines). Dong-gu and Yoon-ah arrive home and Dong-gu praises Yoon-ah’s acting skills, and Joon-ki assures him that Soo-ah is probably thinking about getting back together with him.

The guys hand off Sol to her mother and leave, and Dong-gu actually smiles as he watches Yoon-ah baby-talk to her daughter. But a voice calls out, “Did you just say ‘mommy?’” They turn to see Soo-ah standing in the room, having brought Yoon-ah’s purse that she left at the restaurant.

Soo-ah assumes that Dong-gu had a baby with Yoon-ah while he was dating her, but Dong-gu says that’s not the case. Soo-ah recognizes Sol and, backed into a corner, Dong-gu points at Joon-ki as he innocently walks back into the room and says she’s Joon-ki’s baby.

Joon-ki looks like he could rip Dong-gu’s head off, but he goes along with the story. Oblivious, Yoon-seok asks for a tour of the house, so Yoon-ah gives Sol to Daddy Joon-ki and takes Yoon-seok and Soo-ah upstairs. Dong-gu apologizes to Joon-ki, and Joon-ki relaxes and says it’s fine.

Over at the library, Tae-hyun falls asleep on a table as Seo-jin wonders what to do about her growing mustache. She fights sleep, but when Tae-hyun wakes, he finds that she’s nodded off with her hair in her face. He goes over to sweetly cover her with his coat, but she jerks awake and shoves him away hard enough to bash his head on a table and knock him out cold.

Forgetting her facial hair, she leans over him and tries to wake him up. He rouses and sits up, but he finally gets a good look at her mustache, so she hits him with a heavy book and knocks him out again. Well, that’s romantic.

Over beers, Dong-gu continues praising Yoon-ah to Soo-ah and Yoon-seok, while Soo-ah barely tries to hide her eye-rolling. Yoon-ah goes downstairs at an urgent text from Joon-ki, and Soo-ah gets up to get more beers. She hears a strange noise, and she opens Yoon-ah’s bedroom door to find her breastfeeding Sol.

Joon-ki joins them, and when Soo-ah asks why Yoon-ah is breastfeeding his baby, he claims that she’s just “donating” her milk, ha. But Soo-ah wonders how an unmarried woman can produce milk, and she demands an explanation from Yoon-ah, so Yoon-ah confesses that Sol is her daughter.

Desperate, Joon-ki channels the psychotic villain from the drama he was watching, and he says dramatically that he and Yoon-ah had Sol together and that Dong-gu doesn’t know. He goes back into makjang mode when Yoon-ah hesitates, telling Soo-ah that Yoon-ah is an evil liar and that only Soo-ah can save Dong-gu by taking him back.

But Soo-ah isn’t stupid, and she immediately knows this is a big fat lie. She attacks Joon-ki, then goes upstairs and slaps Dong-gu upside the head. She and Yoon-seok leave, and when Dong-gu follows her, saying that he only did this because he loves her so much, she snaps that she has no feelings for him at all now.

A little while later, the others find Dong-gu trying to kill himself by drinking all the alcohol in the house. He sobs loudly, and when another crying voice joins him, they all look up to see Seo-jin sitting on the balcony, wailing for Tae-hyun. The siblings scream the names of their lost loves, completely inconsolable.

 
COMMENTS

I’m so happy that I liked this second episode every bit as much as the first, if not more. The humor is pretty solid, if a bit lowbrow, but it’s exactly the kind of mindless, stupid, yet still hilarious kind of show I need right now. The baby somehow manages to keep Woohoo Waikiki from being just a silly show about not-too-bright people, because she gives them something to rally around and I can see how her presence will give the story a chance to go places that a straight rom-com wouldn’t be able to go. As funny as I think the housemates are, I can already tell that they’re going to pull my heartstrings pretty hard if their little girl’s well-being is threatened.

After the first episode, I was a little worried that it was going to be difficult to like Dong-gu, because he’s just so grouchy and mean to his friends. I get that he’s disappointed with life, and that he’s having a hard time realizing his dreams, but he takes it out on everyone to a bit of an extreme. So I was glad to see him softening towards Yoon-ah in this episode, because while I can understand that Dong-gu is frustrated and annoyed by her presence and her uncanny ability to screw things up, I also needed to see him being nice to someone for once, even if reluctantly. Happily, there’s something about Yoon-ah that gets to Dong-gu’s squishy marshmallow center, and I liked what I saw once they started working towards a common goal. Even though Dong-gu is still annoyed and frustrated by Yoon-ah, he’s also starting to see her as a person and feel a bit of a connection to her. It’s not much, but it’s enough for now.

We got to see more of Yoon-ah’s personality in this episode, and I’m tickled pink at her cheeky sense of humor and that mischievous glint she gets in her eye at times. She’s a disaster at housework, but she seems smart and compassionate. I think that, the more she gets to know the Waikiki crew and starts to feel comfortable around them, she’ll turn out to be quite the spitfire. Which is good, because if she and Dong-gu are going to have a love line, she’s going to have to be tough yet soft, if that makes sense… his prickly personality will require someone who won’t take the things he says when he’s upset personally, but who can also stand up to him when he goes too far. Basically, she’ll have to land somewhere in between Joon-ki, who constantly pushes back until Dong-gu blows up, and Doo-shik, who just wilts and retreats. I think Yoon-ah will be just perfect for him.

For now, it’s really sweet how Joon-ki and Doo-shik stick up for Yoon-ah whenever Dong-gu starts ranting about her. They’ve wanted her to stay from the very beginning, and Doo-shik is even starting to bond with little Sol, although Joon-ki still seems a bit afraid of the baby. Dong-gu is pretty harsh with Yoon-ah, which feels like it has more to do with his cranky personality than Yoon-ah herself, since most of her accidents seem to happen because Dong-gu makes her nervous. So I’m glad that the other guys are in her corner, being kind to her and keeping Dong-gu from being too mean.

While I think that what Dong-gu did to Soo-ah was pretty awful — trying to make her jealous by claiming to have a new girlfriend — and I can see why she was angry, I don’t agree that Soo-ah had any moral high ground to stand on. It’s not really fair of her to be upset with him for having a new girlfriend, when she had a new boyfriend within a day or so of breaking up with him. The two aren’t the same thing, but there’s no way Soo-ah wasn’t cheating on Dong-gu with the new guy, so they were both being dishonest. That doesn’t make Dong-gu’s lie okay, but with the way Soo-ah was acting all huffy about his “relationship,” it made me dislike her for her double standard. But she’s actually pretty smart, so I think she’ll be an interesting rival once Dong-gu and Yoon-ah start to have some real feelings for each other.

Poor mutant....he had to deal with even longer claws to deal over night.

The whole situation is just so hilarious, but what makes this comedy feels so ingenious is that I can see this happening in real life....that the production gets unexpectedly delayed, the company wants to save money and labor by not reapplying makeup, and no one could care that these extras have to suffer.

I definitely can do without more poop jokes, but this one feels worth it because we got to see the absurd sight of a Porta Potty in their living room.

They started with small poop humor from the tiny baby in episode 1.

Did a full blown poop fiasco among the whole group in episode 2.

With toilet humor, the most I would typically give was a smirk. But with this, I was laughing so loud. I am looking forward to more of your toilet humor, show! Keep the fun going.

I am not very happy with Yoon ah. How can a person be so really useless in the house? How come she ever dated and even had a baby?
I don't like Soo ah either. She is a little bit of a bully and demanding and arrogant. But she will keep contributing to the humor in the show, so that is ok...
Really, I am still laughing about Dong gu running with the face covered in the square in order to not be found and embarrassed in front of Soo ah, ha ha I also want to watch that scene again... 😂😂😂

With so much fun going on with the other characters, Soon-ah surely dampens the mood with her snippy comments and sour bitter face.

For Yoon-ah, her cluelessness seems harmless for now, laughter-inducing. She gave us the crazy funny poop fiasco by cooking the mushroom stew. I am looking forward to more of her trouble-causing skills. 😝

The secondhand embarrassment with Dunggo was just too much. I was cringing so hard for him. Lol.

This show really does NOT hold back on all the cringe humor. It's hilarious, because it's just a bunch of young people thrust into grownup situations that they are just SOOO not prepared for. Ha!

Really? I know plenty of men who are useless around the house, so why can't a woman be as well? And you don't have to do well in that area to date--I'm a terrible cook and not good at housework, but it hasn't hurt my dating life. And anyway, I think the soup fiasco established that she can make food that tastes good. I think the mushroom mix-up happened because Dong gu made her nervous. I can see how the mix-ups would make someone not want to be her roommate, but that doesn't make me unhappy with her, anymore than someone who likes to have a lot parties would make me unhappy with them as a person even though I wouldn't want to room with them.

I haven’t ever watched anything during class, but in a Spanish class I had freshman year the kid in front of me spent every class watching Game of Thrones. There were only 6 of us in that class. The prof was suuuuper old and probably had no clue. I found it funny but also annoying because he would always turn around and be like “What are we talking about?” and I would think “If you paid attention...”

HOWEVER. Last semester I had a very boring and easy 3-hour-long class on Thursdays. The BTLIOF recap would ALWAYS go up during that class and I spent basically every class reading and replying to comments.

If anyone ever wondered how I was always one of the first people to comment on those recaps... that’s how.

Sadly, none of my classes this semester are easy enough for me to do nothing but go on Dramabeans the whole time. 😢

Yes! I loved that it was just there, like no one mentioned it because of course they would be both covered in baby vomit after babysitting. 😹

Are we going to get three couples by the end of this (like the drama header above this recap), or will it be a couple and a love triangle? It looks pretty certain that they're going to put Dong-gu and Yoon-ah together. But Seo-jin (who I actually like the most out of the three girls) could go with either Jun-ki or Doo-sik based on the chemistry in the first two episodes. And how is Soo-ah going to come into this? I really can't see her randomly liking Doo-sik, for example.

I actually like Seo-jin and Doo-shik together too! I feel so conflicted and yes, Seo-jin is my favorite girl. Didn't help that she's played by Go Won-hee!

With how soft and crybaby Dooshik is, he surely needs someone like Seojin. They would be cute!

On the other hand, Seojin could also tone down Junsik’s crazy or they both can go crazy at the same time, it’d be fun!

Let’s see how this plays out.

I have the same thought, I'm not sure how Seo Jin and Doo shik will end up as a couple. Will it be a bit complicated since SooAh is Donggu's ex?
However, it's still early to judge, we still have 14 episodes to go lol.

That was my question too ~ I feel like there are six main characters, but not necessarily three couples. Maybe two love triangles, at most?

Lee Yi-kyung, I have fallen in love with you.

In the past you were like a friend of a friend. I thought you were good at what you do, but didn’t think too much more about you. You peaked my interest in Go Back Spouses with your hilarious antics and impressed me with how you handled your mane of glory. The non-resolution of your story became my only complaint for the otherwise beautiful show.

In Waikiki I look forward to every minute with you -you sneezing out the word Chewbacca, you clarifying your T-zone, you elegantly surfing with the bus in motion, you sipping that soup with the straw, you educating Baby Sol about the world of melodrama.

I, love, it, all.

I first saw him in School 2013 and he made an impression as one of the rebels together with the equally talented Lee Ji-hoon. He has since played many supporting roles, but after Go Back Spouses and Waikiki, I'm positive his forte is in comedy. I mean, his comedic timing here slays everyone else's.

I didn't recognize him as one of the rebels in 2013, but remembered him as the best friend of Park Hyung-Sik in Nine and also in Descendants of the Sun. Now I will seek him out!

I wonder what this new web drama Hakuna Matata Pole Pole is about with him in the cast listed on Asianwiki?

YES! He is my very favorite part of this show so far, closely followed by Go Won-hee! Besides baby Sol, of course!

Watching this right after GBS is just a total treat. His comedic timing is crazy good. Also, his mane of glory was definitely the best of 2017.

I looked him up and was surprised at how many things he's been in. I haven't ever noticed him until GBS!

I wrote this before about not being interested at Waikiki first until I saw the trailers. "Lee Yi-kyung was funny in Go Back Spouses but I wasn’t about to watch a show solely for him."

But now, I will watch anything, especially if it's comedy, Lee Yi-kyung is in. I'm now such a big fan. Everyone is funny but he just blows everyone out of the water. His comedic timing is gold!

There were so many laugh out loud moments for me because of him in Go Back Spouses that I really wished his story got more time than the other best friend (as much as I liked it and found it hilarious.)

I really cannot think at the moment anyone in Dramaland who is better at physical comedy than Lee Yi-kyung......sooooo.....goooooo......daaaaaa

IKR? I could watch an one-episode extension of his story.....what made him choose to be in an open marriage or was he changed now back in the new present? I wanna know!

Maybe it is the Universe' way of correcting the injustice by bring LYK back to Dramaland just 3 months after Go Back Spouses has ended. So happy to see him back so soon!

Lee Yi Kyung caught my attention on School 2013, he was amazing with the other rebel student (which I could not recall his name). However, his dramas after School 2013 did not really interest me at all.. until I watched him again on go back couple and now waikiki. Lol. He is so great at comedy. Rise Lee Yi kyung! Hihi!

Junki’s balancing scene in the bus had me doubling over, my stomach hurts from so much laughter.

Then second bus scene with Yondu and Wolverine bonding, these types of scenes are really simple but I am enjoying them a lot.

This show takes poop hijinks to the next level. So funny. Delirius Donggu, bought the whole thing coz he pooped in it, complete change of character toward Yoon-ah. LOL.

With how clumsy, useless, and clueless Yoon-ah is especially with house work, I won’t be surprised if she’s a chaebol on-the-run. She might have just concocted her sob story so they let stay.

Watched Ep.1 yesterday and I love this show already. Haven't watched this episode yet but I'm sure it's good.

One thing I'm curious about...judging by the poster, does it mean that Dong Gu's ex will end up with Du Shik?

I really didn't like the first episode at all. I guess I was looking for something that the show wasn't and I didn't expect the show to be the kind of show that it is. I reserved judgement until episode two and I have to say that I'm glad I did. I've warmed up to show and now have a better understanding of the ride I'm in for. There are a few comedic elements that I don't like, but there are many more that have me laughing, surprisingly. This may be due in part to the many hours of K-dramas I've watched that I generally get the Korean sensibility. Once there aren't any race/ethnic or homophobic jokes, I'm in for the ride.

Having said all that, here are a few of my thoughts on this episode:
+ I hate those ticking time bomb moments when you know putting up an fake act like that would blow up in their faces royally.
+ I don't know why, but I like Soo-ah. Weird.
+ Dong-gu is me.
+ Joon-ki almost steals this episode. I totally understood his not holding onto anything on the bus and trying to keep his balance. How the heck did he do that pants thing.
+ It's hilarious that Dong-gu is supposed to be lazy, unambitious etc yet through his delegation he gets annoyed Yoon-ah.
+ Kim Jung-hyun has surprisingly good comedic timing. I was worried at first about him choosing this role after the first episode, but my fears were allayed in this episode.
+ That Chewbacca thing...
+ That pushing the shopping cart together scene was too cute. Loved it.

I was cringing during the whole lie because I was just waiting for when it would blow up in their faces... but them shopping together and getting all dressed up was so adorable!

Dong gu is grumpy but he did just get dumped after four years. He sort of has a reason to be in a funk for a bit. I was worried too about Kim Jung Hyun doing a comic role after only seeing him in School 2017, but he’s been good so far (not as hilarious as Junki, but pretty funny)

I was expecting it to blow up in their faces and was also cringing like mad, but when they made it through dinner and all the screw-ups were smoothed over, I was naively like "whew! those dummies actually pulled it off!" only to have the other shoe drop while they were at the guest house! This show is trying to kill me.

“he wanders off wondering if she’s just that shameless, or just that innocent.”

Thanks @lollypip for the recap! I only disagree with your final comments on Dong Gu. I think Dong Gu totally has a right to tell Yoon-ah to help with housework, be more careful, or go or stay. She is staying at a struggling guest-house for free. She isn’t helpful most of the time. She breaks stuff, and she keeps asking them to buy things. So I’m also wondering with Dong-Gu, is she shameless or just too innocent?

I agree ~ I feel like we know why Dong gu is in a bad mood. He just got dumped with no warning after a four year relationship (even if he is awful, it was pretty callous), and nearly gave up on his dreams after having water and electric shut off. I’m fine with him being grumpy for a bit after all that, Junki and Doo-shik work other jobs, but it seems Dong-gu just has the guest house.

Hate to rain on everybody's plot point, but googling something like "does beard grow faster if you shave" indicates that it doesn't.

Well, if we're being strictly realistic...you don't actually need someone else to massage you if you have a clogged milk duct, either.

I rolled my eyes and went with it for the comedy payoff.

That said, I've had to pause watching this episode from second-hand embarrassment, and read the recap & comments to see if I could bear going on to watch the rest. It's agony, I tell you.

Ok, took a half-day and dinner to fortify myself for the rest of the episode. (Mortification fortification?) It was totally worth it! I'm really enjoying the ridiculousness of the show. :)

The episodes a little over an hour long, but it takes me like 20-30 additional minutes to watch each other because I had to keep pausing because of the mortification. And so. many. close. calls. like Seo Jin's dilemma with her crush and her beard. So I had to pause during each one to "fortify" [as you so well worded it] myself by taking a deep breath and by slightly averting my eyes so the full force of the embarrassment doesn't hit me.

It's so hard for us sensitive souls! ;)

I can remember my sister would sometimes be so embarrassed by something we were watching she would have to go out into the hall to listen instead of watching a show. I can still remember her cries of "oh my god!" as sometimes even listening was too much, lol!

The beard: Such. Anguish. I almost expired.

I'm going to try your deep breath/averting eyes trick. Stay strong, ar!

it's just a fear that girls have, like not starting to shave your legs because it will make it come back in thicker, fuller...

and i laughed because all little girls probably thought it looked fun to put shaving cream on the face and shave -- i did it with a popsicle stick to scrape off, instead of an actual razor... because, yes... i was afraid it would make a beard grow....

But she’s actually pretty smart, so I think she’ll be an interesting rival once Dong-gu and Yoon-ah start to have some real feelings for each other.

She will!
For once I'm interested in a rival...... Maybe the actress' performance is convincing? I am very curious about her character. I hope she will have a bigger role in the future.

This episode was even more hilarious then the first. The ridiculous makjang scene that jun ki used to save face was so hilarious because that's what I'd do having watched so much kdramas. I totally loved the fake dating between Yoon ah and dong goo ♥️ Looking forward to next week

Joon-ki suddenly channeling the makjang was gold! I nearly peed myself laughing when he was cornered and went the makjang route. Oh God. But it was really sweet to see the two of them—Doo-shik and Jun-ki—bonding with the baby whilst watching the telly covered in baby barf and not minding the least bit.

Seo-jin is basically me. Haha! Her hairy girl problems hits too close, but now I can actually laugh at it. [No, I did not shave my upper lip when I was younger—it's the genes (thanks Dad).]

To give credit to Yoon-ah, she seems a wee bit of mess when she's flustered—which is like most of the time—but when she's composed she seems pretty capable. For one, she can cook a decent meal, and two, she thought of buying meds to relieve the indigestion she caused. It seems as if her work are all half-done because she always gets rattled whenever the baby needs something, which is understandable, but at least she showed a sense of responsibility by cleaning the fridge and doing the dishes.

I'm really looking forward to next episodes.

I'm so happy to find the sister is just as cracked as the guys. I was worried she was going to turn out to be the bland, moralizing voice of reason in the house. But when she clobbered her crush over the head with the book I laughed as loud as at any of the guys' antics.
