      Yup – they are adorable! Didnt take me any time at all to jump to that ship! They better not play very angsty how-is-Bora’s-hubby . Good thing I dont see many strong contenders yet.. but considering how PBG starts to become a contender for our girl only around ep7-8 I shouldnt raise my expectations.

      Ahhh the angst of a good drama! Although maan.. those episodes are reeaaly long!

Question: Anyone fallen sick from unhealthy binge-watching?! Is that possible?

    probably, sleep-deprivation, irregular sleeping schedules especially if you have to work, not moving enough, eating not right=> it can lead to some negative side-effects in the long term,

    I’m pretty sure binge-watching heals the soul. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

    (But maybe run in place for half an episode and have some fruit when you’re doing it. And don’t forget to stay hydrated. It is a marathon after all.)

    I honestly got sick after two days of unhealthy binge-watching. I skipped meals and didn’t sleep much (about 2-3 hours). After I finished Age of Youth, I was very week and became over-fatigued. It was worth it tho. πŸ˜€

        She can’t really act lol, but I don’t think it ruined the show or anything. Seunggi being cute and the show’s overall humor and fluffiness made up for it πŸ˜›

      Yeah – that one was tricky but it was a matter of ruling out the other choices.. it’s a bit mean but I cant imagine Yoo In-ah playing a kick-ass heroine.. I mean she is so adorable geeky and awkward!
