You guys crack me up!
Forgot how crazy the first few episodes were! P.s. I totally thought New Caledonia was made up too... until I googled it.
addicted to k-drama
I am enjoying this so very much! I am a way older person and I enjoyed this drama so much just because of the crazy, unimaginable in my lifetime, fairytale script. Listening to you 3 younger people week by week "analyze" keeps me sitting here laughing my head off to the astonishment of my co-workers. I didn't think for awhile there you would go on. (I almost didn't either) Thank you for doing so, you 3 are great!!!
I've always wanted to go back and watch this but never could find anyone else to do it with me lol. I like how the hosts find humor in it while still trying to analyze the plot/tropes. Btw if you guys want to do a good drama you should try Signal!
