      It’s good to have this feedback, cause I wasn’t sure if we should keep doing the moving image thing. It’s a lot of work but I love the end result. =) Thanks for listening @raonah!

          I knew I had my running notes on this lying around somewhere… Sorry for the late and long comment in advance (specially when you guys might have forgotten what you talked about in this podcast).. So here it goes:

          festerfaster’s voice sounds like my voice!!!!

          witch/bitch- and then you didn’t take any of that conversation out! šŸ˜›
          He just ate my cat’s poop???? HAHHAAHHAHA

          What you guys were talking about, you ask? Vominting and poop! šŸ˜›

          Wait, how did u guys go from WF to Oh Hae Young? Festerfaster goes on so many tangents- it’s hilarious!

          Gong Hyo Jin? Unlikeable? NEVER!

          Being an obsessive compulsive is something I would love too! *Hi5 festerfaster*

          Ooh hahhaha.. Saya digresses too! A lot. šŸ˜€

          Nam Joo Hyuk similar to Park Hae Jin? Never saw that! But I will be on the lookout now..

          You mentioned 38 Task Force! šŸ™‚ Wasn’t that a case of a handful of us beanies going to every random thread and starting talking about it that led to the recapping? I was so happy when you guys started recapping it!

          Solomon’s Perjury reminding you of IRY? I didn’t see that! But now that you said it.. it did have that feel… still had a more Shut Up Flower Boy Band meets White Christmas.. (I watched it only because you were recapping it and were being so effusive in praising it :P)

          Saya… it feels so nice to know more about your recapping process. You sound so dedicated! I am like festerfaster just being all impressed with your nerdiness! šŸ˜€

          The actress you guys are talking about towards the end? I just checked- Yoo Da-in.. Have you watched One More Happy Ending? She had a good story arc there..

          Wait, did you guys talk about Weightlifting Fairy that much? šŸ˜›

          Feedback-
          It is a lil long..
          Sometimes the voices go far away and sometimes right near the mike
          It just ended a lil abruptly for me.. like I thought you guys would be saying something more

          But I loved your rambly selves! I will check out the other 2 podcasts soon šŸ™‚

          1
          1

            Thank you so much for the feedback! Some of these issues we’ve fixed in the next podcast (though my crappy mic remains an unsolvable problem for now), but we hope practice will help us get better at podcasting in general. =) Also, I can totally believe we sound alike @obsessedmuch. I find I agree with most of your comments here anyway. =D

          I am looking forward to this weekend when I will be able to listen to the other 2 podcasts! I am sure you guys will do well! I wrote a comment to Saya elsewhere that you are already good for beginners šŸ™‚

          Hee.. I meant voice/tenor/accent (could partly be an Indian thing but really- it was literally like listening to my recorded voice) but yeah I could totally relate to all the things you said too! <3

    Is this an advert for his dentist? *feeling punchy*

      Why punchy? I hope you didn’t just have a bad dentist experience! Unless it’s the KYK effect, in which case, I don’t blame you XD

        Not punchy as in hitting. Punchy as in jokey, glib. It happens. šŸ˜›

      Yeah, I’ve had to grudgingly admit that he’s really good here! I’ve eschewed him since those unpleasant remarks he made about “ugly” people, but Lookout’s premise and production team hooked me, and then it just got better and better.

    My first bias. He’s always been good. Just never had a good role in a good drama!!! Can’t wait to watch this…starting tonight since #circle is over.

      Sometimes it takes a good villain/anti-hero to really bring out the layers in people, doesn’t it? Like Kim Kang-woo in Story of a Man, which is probably his best role.

      I’m a week behind in Circle but desperately don’t want it to finish!

    I’m sorry Tunnel for resenting you being 70 mins long for my episode. As you can tell, I am appeased. Do what you want to me, make it 90 minutes for 13, I’ll never complain again! (Or rather…I *will*, but lovingly.)

      I keep wishing for a director’s cut of SW featuring only Bong-bong x Min-min, because the rest of the show was total nonsense, and those two singlehandedly made it not just watchable, but squeeable, adorable, unmissable and all-round generally urmagurdish. Death by squee is real!

      1
      2

        True, so very true. It was a rare case where I forwarded everything other than these two cuties or if I did watch the other parts, I was only rolling my eyes at the stupidity on display!

        Honestly, I knew they would ruin me from the moment he called her damn sexy. We definitely need a director’s cut! Except…I’m starting to wonder…was the nonsense necessary to keep the squee from killing us? Would I be able to survive if all their scenes were cut together like that!?

how he becomes an actual puddle, though…! If this were the old days and we were still using tape, it would have become ribbons from the amount of rewinding I did on that single moment.

I don’t understand how we’re meant to keep up with all the dramas AND get sleep. I haven’t slept for FOREVER.

On the other hand, I finished Hwarang (loooove) and replayed this scene 953409583 times.

    I left hwarang at around episode 18 and now I am wondering if I should go ahead and finish it because you loved it and I have loved almost every show that you have loved!

    0
    1

      If you got to 18 and dropped it, that’s more than a fair shot! I watched it considering Park Hyung-shik the main character, which I think makes the difference in how I took the show as a whole. The hidden king character is one of my favourite tropes (see: ….er, titles I can’t name because it ruins the entire story, noooo…but two of my most-loved book series anyhow) and that hero’s journey, omg, I love it. Hwarang also delivered brotherhood feels that were like…a cross of Warrior Baek Dong Soo and Merlin, except with a really happy payoff.

      But it’s all a matter of taste in the end, I don’t think there are any reliable predictors other than watching stuff for yourself, unfortunately! And then you run into the aforementioned perpetual dilemma of whether to sleep or watch one more episode…

      1
      1

        The answer is always- watching one more episode! 😄
        Sleep is not for us kdrama lovers.

        And now I am curious about your those 2 books! Ah it’s ok, I can just wait for a post titled ‘If you still have time after kdramas and also want to read good stories’ 😜
