Can we get an A-side? Let’s chat what we’re watching! Or, how Stephanie tries to explain why she likes Tomorrow With You without giving away any spoilers to Cherry. It’s harder than she thought! We also realized we missed a couple of Hero! B-Lead! Villain! suggestions from Humble Daisy so we get a few of those in as well and, much to Stephanie’s chagrin, find their next cast to do a drama casting for. NOOOO!!!!

Stephanie would like to apologize to the following:
- Anyone looking for a good analysis of Tomorrow With You. You will not find it here.
- People who are tired of hearing her try to explain the dramas she’s watching. Yeah. They’re weird. Although you should be aware of that by now.
- To Cherry Cordial. She’s sorry you’ve never tried hot buttered rum. She’s a little sorry for you now.
- Anyone who wants to hear that drama casting from the Hero! B-lead! Villain! section. Yeah. Not gonna happen. Or at least not for a very, very long time.
- All the vaguebooking going on. Public announcement to be imminent.
Cherry: My heart almost broke when you started talking about Goblin and critically analyzed Ji Eun Tak, not because I liked her, but because it was starting to sound like you missed the whole point of Goblin. BUT, you redeemed yourself! It’s all about the bromance, B-lead couple, and Gong Yoo’s amazingness for me. I’m guessing you’ll start to realize it after a few more episodes. I appreciate your perspective though. When recommending Goblin to others, I never even though about what a poorly developed character Ji Eun Tak really is. And I just shook off the whole age gap thing because sometimes you just have to for the sake of seeing more Lee Dong Wook. You know? LOL
Stephanie: I’m all heart-eyes emoji over Tomorrow With You. I’ve finished it already because I treated myself to watching something as it aired (which is difficult as a K-Drama rookie when everyone wants you to watch all their favorites). I’m so glad you are enjoying it as much as I did. I won’t spoil it, but it was refreshing to feel such beautiful emotions throughout the show with just the right amount of cutesy angst.
I admire both of you for your plethora of K-drama actor name knowledge. Listening to these last two episodes’ Hero! B-Lead! Villian! has been tough since I barely know anyone. It got me thinking, how many years will it take for me to get to that kind of level of actor name recognition? I should study My Drama List more and see if I can get myself geared up for your next round. Although, that won’t help me with all those K-Pop stars…guess I’ll just have to go fangirl it up and figure out my biases.
Thanks, ladies, for another great episode!

If it makes you feel any better, I have to go look a bunch of them up too. But my specialty is Kpop idols so I just need to keep studying actors diligently! (So Korean)
Ladies – thanks for the episode. I’ve been taking a long slow ride down the river of Chinese dramas so your Hero/Villain/B-lead games always inspire me to start watching Korean dramas again.
In regards to the Got7 video – um, showing my ignorance of Kpop, but who is the husky-voiced rapper in the blue turtleneck at 1:20 minutes in? Give me a singer who sounds like he’s recovering from a bad cold and I am alllllllllllll innnnnnnnn!
The husky-voiced Got7 rapper that you’ve fallen for is Jackson! He’s their big variety idol so you can see him all over the place. He’s beagle-y, but very chivalrous and charming. If you’d like a good dose of him, and where most people fell in love with him, check out his season of Roommate.
