WUTHERING HEIGHTS IS FULL OF GARBAGE PEOPLE. Judy and Linda ponder JTBC's "My Liberation Notes" (나의 해방일지), starring Kim JiWon, Lee El, Lee MinKi and Son SeokKoo.  We really enjoyed watching this quiet contemplative drama, for its realistic portrayal of depression and ennui. Even though the final episode may have been more vague than we would have liked, we definitely recommend checking this out. We're going on a summer break, but may be back if there's anything that catches our eye. Let us know if you want us to check something out!   Digressions:   0:50 -...

WE HAVE THOUGHTS. Judy and Linda mourn episodes 13-16 of "Twenty-Five, Twenty-One" (스물다섯, 스물하나), starring Kim TaeRi and Nam JooHyuk. It was great while it lasted.  Our next episode will be about the popular series, "Business Proposal" (사내 맞선) starring Kim SeJeong, Ahn HyoSeop, Kim MinKyu and Seol InAh. If you have suggestions for the Spring First Impressions episode, you know where you contact us!   Digressions:   1:26 - Listener E-mails! 16:22 - Both Judy *and* Linda watched the second season of "Bridgerton".

THEIR FORM WASN'T PERFECT BUT THEIR FOLLOW-THROUGH WAS ALRIGHT.

Kim TaeRi and Nam JooHyuk continue to be fantastic in this nostalgic TVN drama.   Digressions:   19:07 - Jaurim is a fantastic Korean alt rock band and you should check them out if you want to try something other than Kpop. 31:39 - We run through our mind palace, trying to figure out which song Kim TaeRi is dancing to. 51:57 - Has anyone ever tried that pine drink?

It's all e-mails and midambles, baby! Judy and Linda catch up on a lot of e-mails and random stuff they've been doing for the past 2 months. We'll be doing a First Impressions episode soon, featuring "Thirty, Nine" (서른, 아홉) starring Son YeJin, Jeon MiDo and Kim JiHyun, "Twenty-Five Twenty-One" (스물다섯 스물하나) starring Kim TaeRi and Nam JooHyuk and "Forecasting Love and Weather" (기상청 사람들: 사내연애 잔혹사 편) starring Park MinYoung and Song Kang.   18:36 - Judy watched all of "The Silent Sea" (고요의 바다), starring Gong Yoo, Bae DooNa and Kim...

HE'S A HACKER, QUESTION MARK?! Judy and Linda try out newer dramas for Fall 2021.

We decided to give "D.P." (Deserter Pursuit), starring Jung HaeIn, Koo KyoHwan and Kim SungKyun, its own KDMEO episode. Coming soon!
 

Digressions:  

0:47 - New Patreon donors and Listener E-mails!

11:39 - Judy insists that you watch "Seinfeld", now on Netflix, but only from season 2 onwards.

14:29 - Let season 2 of "The Baby-Sitters Club" give you a warm, comforting hug.

15:49 - "Far Cry 6" is out! Judy is new to the franchise and is eager to acquire the so-called Battle Chicken, but will it be enough to stave off the post-Mass Effect depression?

19:04 - Linda really enjoyed "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings", reminiscent of beautiful martial arts movies of old.

 

23:37 - "Yumi's Cells" (유미의 세포들) is a TVN drama, starring Kim GoEun and An BoHyun. It's based on a 2015 webtoon, which may have been amusing, but the animated bits slow down the pace way too much. Kim GoEun's bangs and An BoHyun's chin scruff are distractingly awful.

30:29 - "Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha" (갯마을 차차차) is a TVN romantic comedy, starring Shin MinA and Kim SeonHo. Judy remembers the 2004 movie with much fondness. This is an easy watch with two adorable lead actors, so try it out! 

39:24 - "Police University" (경찰수업) is an eyeroll-inducing piece from KBS. It stars JinYoung (B1A4), Krystal (f(x)) and Cha TaeHyun, and they can't do anything to help the godawful material. 

 

Some Korean terms:  

답답하다 [dap-dap-ha-da] to be frustrated.

뽑기 [ppop-gi] candy made with sugar and baking soda; currently super popular due to "Squid Game".
