Posted by Cherry Cordial on April 13, 2016



Holy smokes is there a lot of casting news lately! Yoon Shi Yoon, Joo Won, Park Hae Jin, Ji Sung, Lee Jung Suk—that’s a lot of Khottie in one season. So let’s talk about it. For a bit of fun, we pull out the old Who Would You’s from the bag and learn Stephanie doesn’t actually want to meet anyone. She’d rather lurk them. From the bush. With binoculars. Fun times!

    I am SO excited for the kdrama W. Lee Jong Suk and comics? Be still my nerdy heart. I dont even care who else is cast because Lee Jong Suk could act opposite a spoon and make the chemistry believable.

    Fun show today!! I loved the ‘ what if’s’…

    Loved the Barefoot Friends diving episodes. YSY seems about 10 years younger than his actual age… Make me want to protect him. I wonder if his time Marines matured him???

    I enjoyed “Liars Game”. I would watch a second season.

    So Jackson is on a variety show called “A look at Myself” (KBS world TV YouTube) Recently they brought on Park Joon-Hyung. (G.O.D) to ‘act’ as Jackson’s manager. There are some very humorous interactions. The program currently seems to run in three sections with Jackson being in the 1st. I would also recommend watching a little of the third section. The older gentleman ‘Song Hae’ is beyond adorable. Some of the earlier episode interactions between him and Jackson are so cute (you know how Jackson can be with older men).

    Here are some of my ‘what if’s…’

    I think V from BTS would be down with visiting the Aliens.

    I would host with Lee Dong wook. He has experience hosting shows (Strong Heart and an Awards show) and he is very courteous.

    I would take Ken from Vixx to see Hamilton.

    I know you both are not ice skating but Kwang Soo can ice skate. It might be a little awkward as I am 5’2″.

    Now I know Cherry’s BTS bias!! I have to admit, I have a soft spot for grumpy grandpa rappers. I love them all…

    As for Ballroom dancing….?? Who would I like to hold me close??? Song Jae Rim.

    I would like to have Choi Woo-shik (Hogu’s Love) with me in surviving the desert. I vaguely remember him being pretty capable on Law of the Jungle.

    I would like to Karoake with Ken from Vixx again. He has a bright personality and a great voice. We could rock some duets.

    I had such a fun time visiting with everyone today!!!

      Thanks for your What If responses!. I love it when our listeners play along. 🙂

      About my BTS bias, I’ll admit he’s a fairly new bias. When I first became a fan, everybody was choosing theirs and I thought I should, too, so I tried out a few, but no one clicked in a bias way — I know, I know, you don’t choose your bias, your bias chooses you, and even though I know it, it doesn’t stop me from trying, if only to reserve my bias so they’re mine, all mine (although I will share with certain people, such as The Mystical Being of Unicorns). I can’t even tell you why Suga now, when he never clicked before, but he’s there, and there’s no changing my mind now.
