Stephanie should apologize to the following
  • The members of Seventeen who didn’t get a name spotlight in that video—no, she didn’t do anything, but it just seems like you should be apologized to.
  • If possibly she offended anyone with her description with Diary of Tootsies?
  • Fans of the long episodes. (Never mind, haha suckers!)
Thanks for listening! See you next time.

    I believe they are called Seventeen because they were on a reality show with seventeen idols in training…and only thirteen debuted in the group….in part because some of the trainees were WAYYY too young. The show may have been called seventeen….not sure on that point.

    I listen to too many podcasts.

    There was originally 17 members back before they debuted (and the average age was 17), but what it is officially is: 13 members + 3 subunits + 1 group =17.

    Diary of Tootsies isn’t a web drama, other than Line TV it airs on a main tv network and has high ratings and is very popular. It is a few episodes behind on youtube, since the last episode (12) aired yesterday.
    Sad to hear you don’t like it, I think it’s a hilarious drama personally. Top and Gus are adorable, very refreshing for an otp of any kind

      Thanks for the info! You’re right, I didn’t like it at first, but now I’m HOOKED! It just sucked me in. I’ve been waiting for the rest of the episodes to be subbed because I can’t wait to see Gus and his guy get together. I have a feeling they are going to be adorable. I hope his mom doesn’t cause them too much trouble…

        Haha it’s fun, isn’t it? I also grew to like it more and more with every episode.

        As for Gus and Top – you’ll probably be happy about episode 8 then (it’s released on Tuesday) 😀 And, well…I won’t spoil the ending, but they’re making another season next year, hopefully they’ll keep their story going there

          Oh noes! 2 seasons. Please tell me it doesn’t end on a cliffhanger. I will be VERY cranky.

            Heh, yes and no! More of an open ending, really. Just so you know, the real Gus and Top the story is based on broke up in real life – so we should be very glad the creators didn’t give a definitive ending to their story :p

    THIS IS NOT A COMPLAINT – JUST A RANT: I rarely go and watch the Song of the Day video (usually, I’m listening on my phone) but this time, I gave it a shot. I’m not a big CNBlue fan but I thought I could use a little Korean pop rock. But watching that video – oh, my eyes, my eyes! What the heck are those boys wearing???
