Episode 3: No Cardboard, Please!

Posted by Stephanie on July 2, 2014


Episode Three! It’s Episode Three! Three times the charm, three for the road, uhhh Three Dog Night? I’d say we’re very excited about it, but we’ve been excited about all of them, and soon you’re not going to believe us anymore. (Although we are very excited.) This episode allowed me to pull out my research books and go to town. (Oh, how I love my research!)

Thanks for listening! Today we learn who watches more Kdrama, Stephanie squees about YG, we answer a listener question about casting trends, then for our main topic we’re going to dip our toes into the dark side and discuss what makes a good villain. (Bwahahaha!)

Oh, and Cherry Cordial bursts Stephanie’s bubble several times.

We also mention Tablo’s cover of Taeyang’s Eyes, Nose, Lips, which both Stephanie and Cherry Cordial wrote about on their blogs.


Clarifications and Omissions

At the start of our villain discussion, for a brief while Cherry and Stephanie temporarily lose their minds and say adversaries instead of antagonists. We feel silly for our oversight. The notes were RIGHT THERE in front of us…


Stephanie would like to apologize to the following:

  • Stupid Face
  • The actor who is not Doo Joon for thinking you were Doo Joon, although I would have liked it more if you were him.
  • Beverly Sams, for condensing your question, as for the life of me I could not get it to come properly out of my mouth.
  • People who think there was enough plot in Sweet Sweet Bodyguard to warrant all the episodes. (But come on, you know I’m right.)
  • People who like Taeyang’s version of Eyes, Nose, Lips best.
  • Cherry Cordial, for mocking her extremely long currently watching list (you know I’m just jealous).
  • Fans of Trot Lovers
Thanks for listening! See you next time.
