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 »

javabeans: We start the first episode of the Laos trip with a clip of the Peru trip, labeled the last night of “the old youths.” Lol.
