Finally! A Drama segment!

Thanks to everyone who hung out with us today as we watched K-Dramas, chatted for a bit, and ate black bean noodles with us. We were super excited to do this! We’ve always wanted to do a K-Drama segment, and we’re lucky that Viki wanted to do something with us. Great success!.

I’m also happy that this drama didn’t suck. If you didn’t watch it with us, we were watching Let’s Eat, Episode 1
Martina made me watch a few and I wasn’t impressed, but I’m actually interested in watching the rest of this. The first episode wasn’t perfect. I HATE seeing vomit. Oh man. I get extremely nauseous, even seeing fake barf. Hongdae on a weekend, with drunk people barfing everywhere…oh it hurts me so much. I also understand that the student is supposed to be air headed, but the “Oppa Jjang Jjang Man” hurts me so much. Is it supposed to burn that much? Or can you just brush it off easily? It hurts…hurts so much.

But otherwise I liked the characters. I was really surprised to see Doojoon act so well. His character isn’t, like, Wolf of Wall Street level of acting, but he fills his role pretty well. I also like the stress-eater girl. Good for her for fighting back against the scumbag. Oh man. She did great with the legal threats, but I’d have gone the knee-to-the-nuts-gouge-out-eyes route. That’s just me. I’m less forgiving.

Viki was also nice enough to give you all three free months access to Viki. All you gotta do is click here and fill out the form. Booya! No ads, and all HD, for you! That’s pretty awesome, I’d say

Anyhow, we might be doing more K-Drama segments in the future, if you’d like us to, that is. We had fun! We’ll think about what we can do to change things up and improve them, and hopefully get to getting those out soon. Shablamo! Make sure you click on the button below here to ensure that you don’t miss out on any future segments:

  1. I just finished watching the whole season and loved it! Does anyone know if there is a second season planned?

  2. Can you guys do something like this more often. I really like this even thought it was for black day. Can you do a drama watching live chat once in awhile. It’s actually really fun. I was thinking like once a month or something. you can do it at different times so that everyone can enjoy. :) What do other people think? like this if you like this IDEA so that Simon and Martina can see it.

  3. you think that it’s tacky but it’s like actually super cute on SooZee. Love yah girl ! :)

  4. looks like it was great fun! good idea!

  5. West coast high five! and I totally spaced it too even though I was looking forward to it most of the day.

  6. By the way, if anyone liked this drama because of the nice food, you might like this josei manga “A Delicious Relationship” (Oishii Kankei) my Makimura Satoru: http://wingtipcafe.com/en/?page_id=145
    There was a t-drama and a j-drama of the same name made from it a bunch of years ago, they were kind of lame though in comparison to the manga because they followed the storyline only very loosely. I know that a lot of drama lovers like manga/manwha too (like me).

  7. Nope don’t worry you weren’t the only one. Viki told me it wasn’t available in my country.

  8. This reminds me of mystery science theater 3000 hahahaha I love this!

  9. This makes me wish you would do a TL:DR about your top 5 K-dramas for people who don’t watch k-dramas. You know, the dramas that either are super referenced or that are the most entertaining or have the biggest celebrities that people who only listen to k-pop might not know but should. Or just the shows with the best characters or coolest concepts. …I JUST WANT A K-DRAMA TOP 5. Oh, or with the best theme songs even. While I personally live for Hurt by Ali (Rooftop Prince) or She’s the One by Clazziquai (Kim Sam Soon), I think my favorite use of a song to accurately describe the feel of a drama is…


  10. Yeah I’m also curious. Would be fun to watch the whole series together!

  11. Thank you guys for doing this I enjoyed it so much! You guys managed to combine some of my favorite things Mystery Science Theater 3000 + Kdramas + EYK crew unedited humor = 1 happy camper! I’m glad I watched Let’s Eat before though so I wouldn’t get lost following the episode and your comments really helped me understand some of the cultural differences.

  12. It was too late last night for me to comment once the livechat ended but that was a lot of fun. I actually watched the k-drama right before the livechat started because I didn’t think that I would be able to follow the subtitles AND watch the livechat at the same time. But maybe I will try to watch both next time since I was still able to multi-task during the chat. I thought it was really useful and interesting how you discussed some of the korean jargon/slang and whether that was just for this show or a normal thing – really helped make the drama better for me.
    Do the take-out delivery guys in Korea just hang around waiting for the dirty dishes? How long do you have to finish your meal before they get irate? That seems horribly inconvenient for them…..

  13. You should watch White Christmas- not the Bing Crosby movie, the KBS drama with Sung Joon and Kim Woo Bin. Students snowed in at isolated school + murder mystery. And it’s short- only 8 episodes. I just really want to watch everyone’s reactions. Way more fun to freak out together than the first time I watched it and had to spazz all by myself.

  14. you should definately watch reply 1994 cause 1. it was like the most famous drama in korea and 2. IT WAS NOT CHEESY AT ALL OMG FINALLY A NON CHEESY K DRAMA and 3. oh god that swearing pretty well used and finally 4. SOOOOOO FUNNY AHHHHHHHH yeah sorry i just really liked it…..

  15. Have you seen Masters sun? That is my personal favorite.

  16. Ah this is so difficult. Being Australian with our super sucky internet speed I don’t think watching the two together is going to work for me. Now I have to decide whether I should watch the livechat first and then the drama or the drama then the livechat. GAH!!

    • They did mention in the future they hope to somehow get a picture-in-picture so that you can see the drama and the livechat in one window.

      • Yeah I heard that. I think I would probably still watch separately though cause I don’t think I’d be able to enjoy either one fully trying to watch both. Oh well I’ve finished the episode now so onto the livechat!!

  17. I watched for a while, but I had to go to finish school work. You guys are amazing.. I wish I could have stayed longer.. Even though I’m so new to watching you

  18. Oh man totally agree with the con! its soooo bad to watch at like 3am and of course thats the only time I watched it haha :D

  19. The drama’s not available in my country but seeing your reactions to the barfing scenes was hilarious! XD

  20. Couldn’t watch in live time cause viki was freezing like CRAZY with all the traffic & my slow computer..
    but me & my sister are watching them here now at 2am, you on the laptop & the movie on her tablet ^-^

  21. I’ve already watched the whole Let’s Eat series so it kind of sucks that I couldn’t view it with you guys from the beginning but I did enjoy your commentary and all that jazz :D ///fingers crossed for another livechat drama style//// it just felt like a huge slumber party and yeah smiles all around from my end :)))))))
