Thank you guys so much for the podcast! I absolutely love them.

I also wanted to say that I totally understand the whole recap issue, I never thought you were hating on SS, cause well, its wonderful:) However it was great hearing how much you actually like it.
It would be nice to have little moments like this at times just to hear your thoughts. And I have agree with you on Plan"Bi" and Dr. Champ, especially pertaining to Cha Hye Run and Kim So Yeon. I really thought it was just me.

Have a wonderful day ladies. And thank you again.

As for Cha ye ryun - I liked her in doremifasolatido- that movie she did with Jang Geun Suk (that took like 3 years to be released) and am disappointed that she has been playing these bland 2nd female lead roles. There is just something so quiet about her, I think what she needs to boost her career is to do one of those daily family dramas so that energy can shine through and so that people can recognize her.

AH! no wonder she looked familiar. She didn't leave much of an impression to me in doremifasol, but then again, i didn't like the movie much, even though it had JGS in it.

They have very similar laughs >_> I could only differentiate between them because GF's acoustics are a bit more echo-y (like when you speak in a bathroom LOL) whereas JB's sound is more filtered. But they both sound so cute XD.

I loved your talk about SKKS, I also love Jaeshin, probably my favorite second lead ever and definitely my favorite character in the drama. But at the same time I get how SJ and YH is THE couple, especially after reading translated parts of the novel.

I understand you don't have the time for recapping, but I hope you both can write a review of it after the drama has ended.

And yes J4 > F4.

i looooooooooooooooooooooove ur podcasts. so great hearing ur guys's insights on sungkyunkwan and champ.

i cant believe girlfriday doesn't think kim so yeon is not the prettiest. She's one of the most beautiful women i've ever seen seriously! When i first saw her in IRIS i was like..WOW, and didn't understand why everyone was going gaga over kim tae hee when so yeon was so much more stunning! She is FLAWLESS

haha nasty hate mail. HAHAHA.

I love your podcast and my day perk up on your discussion with SKKS. It feels so good to have something feeding my addiction this weekend...lol

I totally agree about Jaesin..he is the hero but just the second lead and I know my heart will break because he will not get the girl (hoping there will be a spin off of him..lol) I just love him....his character...his hiccups, which is bad because am not a teenager anymore. I am not obsessed with the actor but with his character. Like i was rooting for Daegil and Oh Ji Ho in Chuno. Probably my taste goes to those kind of eye candy...lol

I was also totally invested with Bad Guy and CS and the ending was just bleeehh. I was into Bad Guy so much that I have Kim Nam Gil in my dreams and had a marathon with Seondeok the whole weekend. With CS, cried bucket of tears, etc...and when the ending came, I was "wth.." I was so mad that at one point I swear never to watch another drama again..lol

thanks again for the podcast, I totally enjoy your discussions and you have such lovely voices...and so nice to hear a voice behind the recaps.

had a great time listening to your discussion especially about SKK. glad to hear the you guys love them!

aside from PK, SKK is one drama that i closely follow. they have good story to back up the great characters of the 4 leads. and the excecution of the story as of the moment were done in good taste.

agreed regarding I Am Legend, at first few episodes i really thought that this drama would be good but damn, in the last few episodes going to the end i felt like where the heck the story goes?

runaway and daemul got to see few scenes but i guess both of them are not my cup of tea...

dr champ, havent really focusing on it yet, the drama seem promising, will catch up on it once PK is done.

thanks again jb and gf! til next podcast!

It was great to listen to you guys. It's as if we are gathered in a meeting of true minds to quote Jane Austen.
You guys sound like how you write: very literary, intelligent, and eloquent women but fun and our gal pals.
Thanks.

I love you girls. :) It was interesting hearing your voices for the first time, and your Sungkyunkwan conversation was awesome. It really is one of my favorite dramas, and although I wish you guys covered it, it is still great that you like it. I can't wait to see the episode 13 recap! Thanks for all you do! You guys are amazing.

@Java Beans & Girl Friday

We are being throughly spoiled! First, the photos from the Comic Con., then a podcast :D (Has Christmas been moved to October?)

From now on, I will hear your voices as I read the recaps :D

I would love it if you gals could do a mini podcast at the END of each of the dramas the DB team recaps. (Hint, Hint, Nudge, Nudge) :D

best recaps of the series ever..nice to know the personal thoughts of ppl who actually watch the series. i'm like oo wow. it wasn't just me who enjoyed this series just much or hated as with bad guy and cinderella sister's crap ending. not just the series but the exact major moments u mention. esp skks which is so awesum right now. but i'm so scared where they might be going after the next episode which according to the recap is a student council meeting where daemul and gu-roh are being interrogated while garang walks in and says he is the one who is gay. OMG!! did anyone else think the same?

Thanks so much for the podcast! It was really entertaining to listen to, as usual =)

Just wanted to say that we all really do appreciate whatever that you guys both choose to recap because I know that recapping takes up a whole lot of time and effort. I mean, just watching dramas alone sucks out so much of my time (which I should be using to study heh) but the amount of dedication you both put into maintaining this site, and churning out recaps is AMAZING. Like seriously, you guys are both so awesomely insightful and witty that I can't help myself from stalking this site ;P So anyway, you guys recap what you can/like/choose and I appreciate all the effort!

The discussion on Sungkyunkwan was so spot on with whatever I was thinking. I love that you guys both have different views on the OTP, and I think I constantly flip from one view to the other when I watch it, which is what makes the triangle so fun to watch. And I agree that the quartet is so complementary with all the layered characters.. oh i don't know how to describe it.. it's just awesome. Haha. You guys already hit the nail on the head with your discussions anyway, I was yelling "Yeah!! exactly.... mm hm... " while listening and then like randomly laughing. Luckily no one's home or they'd think I'm completely off my rocker. Heh.

Wasn't planning to see Dr. Champ due to time constraints, but it's going on my watch list now, for later when I do find some time =)

My comment's gotten so long =o Thanks again for the awesome commentary!

Hi JB and girlfriday,

I got to enjoy listening to your podcast in its entirety, just before watching the Giants beat the Phillies...so what a great evening this has been!

I love how your two voices are different, yet they complement each other so well. It was easy to distinguish them, so it was never a problem figuring out who was speaking at any given moment.

I agreed with so many of your comments about I Am Legend and Dr. Champ. I only decided to watch Dr. Champ because of Kim So-yeon. I didn't have very high expectations for the drama; to be honest, the premise didn't exactly excite me...at all. But, I've found each episode to be interesting and fun, and Kim So-yeon continues to impress me with what she brings to her character. I think my enjoyment of this drama is due largely to the main characters, themselves, much more than to the storyline.

But, I hafta disagree with you, fri. *lol* Kim So-yeon may not be the hands down prettiest of all the Korean actresses that I've seen in dramas or movies, so far...but she is very near the top of that short list(for me). Her facial features may be just a tad sharper than what some people might prefer...and the hair style she's been sporting in her two most recent projects(Dr. Champ and Prosecutor Princess) is definitely not my favorite(with those bangs). But, free that pony tail and dress her up in something pretty and/or elegant, and the woman becomes absolutely stunning.

Thanks so much for the great podcast, JB and fri! I've listened to all three, and they're the perfect companion to reading your recaps! Great stuff!

Oh I wish you'd talk about SKKS for the entire 45mins, then Dr.Champ for another 45mins, and more for pure fangirling. :D

Thank you, thank you! I wish I have girl friends like two of you in the real life.

ah yes about Kim So Yeon, I like her from AAE days, she played the villain role so damn well. I watched most of her works even if it sucks ( Autumn Shower ), I purposely didn't watch Gourmet ( I don't like KRW ).
And I agree with GF's comment. KSY in real life apparently is bubbly but smart , saw her once in talkshow "Win Win", and it was new for me because I used to think she's calm, sophisticated, elegant kind of girl. But she's shy and adorable in that show,and somehow more like Ma Hyeri ( minus the ditzyness ). After that, I like her more..and I realized that I like her more than Chae Rim, and IMO she's better actress than CR too!

And I thought it's JB in that pic! Almost fell off, you got me there.

Thanks for your podcast #3, it 's lovely, well organized, good timing with great music. This one is even better than the last.

Love most gotta be your SKKS bantering, MJS vs LSJ. Sorry GF, I'm with JB here, love garang too much specially in ep13-14. I always fall for righteous/quiet/boring guy, he tends to save you from just about anything.

I thought what missing from your podcast is the Q&A part. It would be nice say like in 'Sleepless in Seattle' , where people tune in and just ask your help just about anything. Say '...*sob sob*.....JB...whyyyyyy SJ is so stupid, doesn't know she is a girl yeeeet? or 'Do you know how Yoon Hee takes a bath in SKK? or ' etc. LOL.

Hope for your nexxxxxt one , please keep coming.

Btw, I heard it myself in person from LMH that he is currently in the process of preparing himself to be the CITY HUNTER. So I guess it's coming thru.

Dang! never knew he is this handsome and hot. Gosh. *drooling*

Your podcasts are improving each time around! Totally awesome, podcast #3, not to mention all the SKKS love going around - I'm always glad to have the DB family around to fangirl with, because most of my other friends, family and colleagues just think I'm strange like that. Sigh.

And you're right! J4 would own F4, no matter how well BOF is executed, just because of the way the characters were written. SKKS really is one of my most favourite dramas of 2010, although admittedly it's hard to choose a favourite because 2010 has had quite a crop of dramas that have been quite even.

By the way, just wanted to ask - is there any way to even the tones/volume of the podcast a little? There were some parts where y'all were fading in and out quite a bit, and I had to turn the volume full up to hear what y'all were saying while your voices were...away(?) from the mic(?). I don't even know how y'all are recording this but...yeah.

Can't wait for podcast #4! You guys are lovely, and it was also great to finally see photos of y'all in RL at Comic Con - once again, thanks for all your dedication in running the site; know that for every hate mail you receive, there's probably 10 out there that want to tell you how much we love you guys for being the awesome drama recappers you are!

Ohh... I loved hearing you guys again! Shame I'm not watching any of the dramas you guys were so passionately delving into. But Daemul. Ha!

Dr Champ: Have MAD girlie-crushes on both Kim So-yeon and Cha Ye-ryun (so goth), and the latter? I feel bad for the poor girl with you guys saying she's being wasted in yet another drama. Comparatively, Chae Yung-ahn was very energetic in Coffee Prince and her scenes with Lee Sohn-kyun were also fun (or annoying) at times, never boring. Poor CYR, I know she can do better, there's untapped potential right there.
I agree with JB about KSY's varied roles, she's lovable in everything, she's a pro like that.

Daemul: Go Hyun-jung is amazeballs. She's SO swept me into this show - heart, spirit! Come what may!
Still scarred by the WEIRD first episode though, but may forgive if things remain as they have been from episode 2 onwards, which is low-key, understated with more of a focus on atmosphere and weighty characters. Or maybe *gasp* it'll get better.
I can understand if it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it is mine, so yay. ;)

thank you javabeans and girlfriday! you put into words the very same things that's going on in my mind about SKKS. i love that drama especially the four characters and the underlying stories and issues. i only knew about it a few days ago, but now it's like everything that's going on inside my head...

i will be patiently waiting for your next podcast! thank you again :)

I loved listening in on your thoughts. I have enjoyed the Sungkungkwan Scandal. LOL @ the "invention of homosexuality". I think it was only social stigma that kept it under the wraps.

I like the idea of Sun Joon's Idealistic, stick with principles, no nonsense existence. Life maybe staid for him and those associated with him but it gives an opportunity to be the observer and knower of truth, which he does with such flair. Jae shin, is adorable for his emotional-quick to anger softie disguised as a tough Guy, keeping the secret and respecting a woman inspite of knowing Yoon shik was one. That makes me want to hug him. Yong ha, now hes the one who knows how to have fun. His brain is on overdrive over pertinent information, which sits well with him. Yoon hee makes me want to go "You Go Girl". I like the way her character shows such a great inner strength. If half the girls in today's world had her kind of strength, compassion and genius, maybe our world would resemble utopia...

Thank you so much... This was wonderful listening in.

Hi,
Appreciate if u can split the podcast by drama so that it's easier to follow. Most of us don't watch all drama covered in a single podcast so it'squite tedious to FF to prefered part
Further than this, kudo to the idea and effort. You made my day

as always, you guys are awesome! like reading your recap.

agree with GF with Jae shin being the hero but being the second lead.

keep up the awesome work!!!
