Three Meals a Day: Episode 2
by | October 25, 2014 | 25 Comments
girlfriday: I think we forgot to get something across in our last recap for this show — basically, that it’s hilariously boring. It’s a show in which nothing happens, but is strangely funny because of the meta relationship between Na PD and Seojinnie. javabeans: Oh lol, was that not apparent in way we described them...

girlfriday: Yay, Three Meals a Day is here! I don’t normally watch cooking shows, but I have a feeling this show is mostly just another chronicle of Na PD and Lee Seo-jin’s bickering bromance. javabeans: Right. I’m even keeping my expectations low, because of all the pre-show stuff where Seo-jin has been complaining about how... More »

Youths Over Flowers: Episode 11 (Final)
by | October 15, 2014 | 23 Comments
javabeans: This is a highlight episode since last week’s episode took us through the end of the Laos trip, but I’m hoping that there’ll be good tidbits in here. I don’t love highlight episodes since they feel like filler, but this production team is pretty good about finding narratives in any situation. girlfriday: Waaaah, I... More »

Three Meals a Day, with a heaping side of bickering
by | October 7, 2014 | 39 Comments
What is it about eating in slow motion that just makes it hilarious? Or is it slow motion in general that makes everything hilarious? Or really, maybe it’s just the obvious point: It’s Na PD that makes things hilarious. The first trailer has come out for Na PD’s new food-related variety program, Three Meals a... More »

by | October 1, 2014 | 46 Comments
girlfriday: This episode begins with an ominous tone, introducing each of the boys as “informants,” which must be a meta reference to Yeon-seok’s latest movie. javabeans: Oh right, we pick up after that night out at the club—and from their reactions (“He said that? I told him not to tell”), I hope we’re in for... More »
