On this episode: @tudzdotexe @estrella8_ @thebakahime @_shakira & Huda

Welcome back to another episode of fries academia. Today I'm joined by if at AKA, the BACCA. He May Shakira, and you're not steal and I'm tied to see. Hi Everyone. Today's episodes of a bit different than usual. As you can see, you all ladies here and we're going to be talking about our favorite romance strokes that we like and hate in k dramas and anime and beyond. So right, this is just going to be like a casual discussion, guys just talking about the marshy shit we like. But I do have one question just to kick off the discussion, to get the ball rolling, and I just want to know what everyone's First Romance Anime or K drama was. So what got you hooked? It wants to go first. My first one, I want to say. It's my little monster. I don't wantswer. Was that Amonga first? Um, I'm not sure if it was. I don't know because I just watched the anime. But what's the Japanese name? I think everybody knows that by the Japanese name. Think it's Turnari. No Guy, wot sock a bits, something like that. Yeah, yeah, I know which one was. Talking about. Yeah, loved that one. I think that's what got me hooked, because a lot of them, like I don't know if you guys do this, but I just get through romance and we like watch all sixteen episodes and I'm just like, we know, I'm happy, but hey, I made it through. But if I started with like those kinds of ones, I never would have been into it. But because I had that first one, I was like okay, I'm gonna push through the rest. Basically, yeah, I hear that because even like nowadays I always say, Oh, I don't have time for anymy I can't keep up with it. But I remember when you were to call it came out and how I couldn't have had to let it pile up so I could being several episodes at once, because I just could not stand laying every year I watch the whole thing out. was before. That was a drag may we don't get a lot often. God. My obsession with that anime Manga is untowthee like took s me have a breakdown the other day, like I had. I cried because as I didn't, I couldn't find the Manga and like Amazon Prime, like delayed my reorder and I was just there like what is the point in life? I need to read it because I've just watched an Wana. I need more. You need and like the Manga volumes, I like this thick as well. They cannot say Spadi. Know, I feeling huge twice. By accident. Is a volunteer of one and three, and I cried because I want to check for bunny and three and they're like, oh, yeah, check back in November on and I was like, and this is like August. I was like, well, that's it and make what do? Well, I'm I meant to do. HMM Boy. What about Your Kira? What was the beginning of the end? Well, ever, was Nanna really yeah, are you waiting on the deep end? Oh my God, Oh my God, yea, I said, I don't respect myself. Huh. Did you really literally knows, dive into that day, flew into it. Your mom. That's an intense one. But yeah, I mean that was my first one, so I wasn't really into romance as it was, because that was when I was quite young and stuff. When I got back into anime like at a later age, I think the one that really clinched it for me was honey and clover. Any guys watched you? I know that one. Yeah, on my list for years. Yes, yeah, that was. I mean it's not even all about romance, it's just sort of about life. I guess it's like Nanna's like life lessons and stuff like that growing up. But yeah, those...

...are the two that it's the drug. Now you know the yeah, what about U Stll? I think I think the first kind of yeah, I think I'd say it was frus baskets, Bruce basking, snap usk it. I remember watching reading that years and years, years ago. The secondary score something like in what when I was back in then school, there was a lot of my Mary people were into Mander and probably maybe about two people and one's I'll tell me. You should really fruit baskets. Then watch it and it was actually quite cool. It kind of was quite the first type of anime serious. That kind of opened up that whole lot of like romance of stuff for me. Not sure if you guys if frust baskets was the first. A few guys is definitely. I think it was for me, but watched it. It was my first one to I remember. I saw obviously all the anime we've got watching that we didn't really consider anime. They were just cartoons. Because so, off the back of that ice, I was in my school library, I saw the volume on display and obviously I just need it lit. Another like farteen. They need to get into and then obviously it was completely different and like, even though it's a Soho Jo Manga, there are certain things in it are quite like darker and stuff like that. So that really like set me on that path. It was my first Manga ever, actually said before, and you're like the popular battle show names or a romance man actually got me into the genre. HMM. So it's nice to hear about everyone's first. Man, I feel like this like explains a lot about everyone, but it wore expect my life. But things back to another discussion. Like obviously new things come out all the time, like dramas and anime, but I think everyone has their like comfort kind of show or anime. Like I think for me my first drama was he's in the trap, but I still enjoyed need to. I know I possessive shit. I think I think was cool, but I could kind of like up to a certain point, it kind of like segued into his own thing, kind of like there was enough of the cannon t like adapt so they just did their own thing. So I still preferred the web tune. But I think the first dram I enjoyed and like ware in head. First was weightlifting fairy came book guy. I could watch that, but my life I don't think. Yeah, he lose, Huh. So, yeah, that's my comfort one. One day I'll finish gobbling Goblin is inten I mean I also can't people that I will catch up to one piece one day. So who knows, but I will cool after recording. I could watch breakle noting berry again, like I don't know what to do. You guys. Yeah, I stood offs like so many times and I yeah, I still haven't finished Goblin and that was a fuck great drum. I literally binge that like I punish shift for that little that my first K drama full shift from I worked hard and I finished. It was a lot and it was the first one that completely broke my heart as well, because usually I'm just like, I'm involved in the story and and then when they catch our I'm like, Oh man, but with God, and I was like yeah, this is ruined me. This is completely rude. We as I I think it was just slow beginning because, like, I hear you guys talk about it and it's like, I know, I love this, like if I could just didn't sit down and watch it. But like, I think, because it's so and I know why they build up, is a bit slow because they have to do it as world building and explaining. But I will get to it one day. But I just think it's funny because that was my introduction to lead on work and now he's like my husband and because of him, I watched the other one where he's the lawyer. Cut Your heart. That is also...

...idea. This is a fresh hit. That's into it. This is that's it. There's a best a lie, like it's so good, oh my God, because I was going through the drought while I was just not feeling k dramas for a while, and then I found that one, like I got I got a Vicky, Vicky, like he had subscription and I was like, Oh my God, I put they're from Goblin right, let's get into it, and I was like I'm back in my bag. This is so good and it's like quite light heart as well. It's like serious professionally, because I'm lawyers, and I think there's a bit of drama, but not too much. The rest is like pretty much what is it? Fluffy? Like lighthearted? Yeah, yeah, you should, you should. You should watch it still carry you would love it. I know would love it. What? There's so many that I know I should watch and I don't have a reason why I haven't watched it. Just you'd watch Oh my Venus seven times over. The reason why we don't watch it is because we spend a lot of time all shit, because it's comfortable and it's evenly. Why? Oh yeah, I have like P I hasn't any comfort and same crack. But if he is, it's like crack, isn't it? You keep in certain the same crack. Looking for me, I know, boy the rain. Yeah, my Venus, is that for cures crack? I know that for sure. I have. I have three like Comfort K dramas. I'm currently rewatching another. One of them got taken off Netflix. I'm just so ups which one. It's one it. It's called discovery of loves. Is that the one with the guys flankicking and all of them say, I guess guys. They love a fun troops. That's thought. It's not okay, if you don't have a flake, it better game. Oh that's it. No, it's Oh my Venus. I mean I don't need to explain. I don't need to explain. No words need to be services. We know us. Look, you don't need to discovery of love is another one, but that's just got taken off Netflix. I need to find another way to watch it because I think it might be my favorite all time. And the third one is one spring night, which I told you years to watch. There re times and you haven't. I don't really did it. You didn't I watch this with you? Oh No, that was we watch. So. Oh No, that was the movie and it has the same actor in it and I said, yeah, you would like it, and okay, yeah, I love that movie. That was great. Yeah, I was such a good movie. Yeah, it was good. Did you guys get into k dramas because of web tune? For me, yeah, because she's in the yeah, my first one I had no clue about dramas, you know. I was just reading mangard. Then I heard about web tunes. So I started reading web tunes and I watched a red shoes in the trap and to was like, Oh, you know, there's a show for that. I said right, let's get it. Watch the show. But because I watched it on like this Asian k drama website, I noticed all of the other shows on beneath like you should check this out. I'm like, what's all this? Ever since then I'll be watching dramas. Literally, I got into it through Netflix. I was watching Japanese dramas like, you know, mischievous kiss and the one where they like good morning call and them like yeah, yeah. Then I watched those two and I was like there's pretty much nothing else here, and then I saw those tons of pay dramas. I was like, all right, let's get into it. HMM, there we are. You know who we are. Yeah, I could never get into the Japanese ones. I just feel like the Korean ones have the budget and the Japanese ones are always had DC day weeks this and they're goofy, right. Yeah, yeah, to try too hard, to make the guys look like anime characters. Yeah, it's like the stiff wig, you...

...know, the one of the highest spinning. It's like synthetic and fun. Yeah, it's Pepe Putting K dramas. Everyone looks regular, like a million bucks. Regular. Yeah, you regular, you roll with. Subway is paying for everything. They have this budget. And I didn't say straight cly would. Oh my God, the advertising is so blazed. Its ridiculous. I love it's why it was. It got to a point where I was finding it really hard to continue with Goblin because, you know, topway, every minute, like the recap at the beginning, which I like, they feel like ten minutes long and man, I thought one piece of like recaps or bad? Please, drama. You can skip the recaps. I I am a you skip scenes of yeah, that's that's what if you find is there for you, you have all I skip seen the kissing. Let me go back. You know how these things going. You skipped ten seconds. I guarantee you know exactly what happened all ready, because we've seen a thousand of these and they all followed. Well, not all, but if you're going for the really Corny, you know, kind of fluffy ones, you know exactly what's happening. Know, when he just said that, when she was really we were like how did how is she getting through all of these Chinese dramas? Really Chinese dramas many episodes and she was like, yeah, I'm just skip watched them all. Guys, I'm the same things right, because they'll literally do something. Wise, I don't know, Aniki, it's the guy in the girl in the office and they're trying to make them get closer and it will be like the girl did it that if for so long, like China, do little things like know exactly what's happening, then she falls over and the full takes about twenty minutes. So you must then you know for see here, see it there. It's like, I'm sleeping those motherfuckers. Then cool. She finally called and they're both like and I was like, you know, I mean, I've been here before me. It's what I was watching K drama and there was there was a really sad scene or whatever, like this woman was going through it and she had a breakdown, and I literally timed it. It was to three and a half minutes of j her just crying, just multiple angles, just crying, no dialog, Colombian telennivellas like this. The whole episode isn't exactly banish, exactly snollywood. All the things are either a but yeah, I don't skip the serious ones, I know, super draatic, super you know. I mean like I won't skip those. But the Chinese, the the Corny ones especially, I'm going, Hmmmm, I know exactly what happened, especially just like irrelevant characters, you know, and like they kind of like skipped to a scene where it's about like the mom and like some sister talking. I'm just I don't care about them, but they're not my business. I'm here for the Romance, if relevant, for plots. That's some other thing that you do. That happened in who watched the strong woman do bom soon? Yeah, I loved that. Due that I was banging, but they had a subplot about like this criminal enterprise. are like, I don't give a shit about these people. That's all. Literally did not care. That's how I thought about what's her face in a my Venus, the one that was fight. They lost those a weight and then became a miserable uh scenes. Every time I saw her face, I'm like next, like, okay, okay,...

...you've got her man. She doesn't want him anymore. What's your problem movie? Yeah, for the Look of you're salad without the dressing. Get Out of you know why we dressing though she was dressing. She was dressing. Thanks Saving Mydd ever, I will give that. Know your story. What's happening? Oh my God, I was interested in her much. I was interested by the end of the whole like, Oh, here's why she's a miserable bitch down like Ye, okay, if I watch this again, it'll be different. With that Sim I watched a my wnus. I could give a shit. If I'M NOT gonna lie. Yeah, I know what. I'm like that, but I don't like her. But you people, okay, yeah, you go back to comfort food, then get to hear if facts in astos. What do you what could you keep going back to? You emergency couple? That's my go too. It's on Vicki. It's like, basically, these two people who were divorced any kind of like reconnect and it's so crazy's corn and the guy's possessive and like a possessive guy is my drug in drama, not in real life. If anyone getting I did in drama. Yeah, not in real life. No one's about that possess if it's going to bed by a feminist podcast supporting women's rights. Guy. Right, yeah, you're still I don't think just hearing out. Ladies, I don't think I'll be a serious I can go back to you because these cave jobs so long, but I just keep them like. I just can't. There's a lot to get through. Okay, they are a lot old. That was so good, but to like I couldn't watch you start to finish again. I have to me on the next one. That's just me, like certain scenes or something. It's just too long. I just can't do it. I think it's like twenty episode and I watch them all. This is sick about it, but it's it's not the same kind of beings watching. You can do that. Maybe an animal who just get through, because I don't know if it's I can't Wa compare it. I wouldn't be able to do it. But you can't sit. I'm being your drama. No, because it required a certain of attention that I don't need to give an anime. He just starts skipping like her doing. If I know that too, watch the work. I'm just I couldn't skip them because I always found like when I skip too far, I gets quite a right weight. What happened here and then you have to about you back a minute to skip seconds. Yeah, you have to be tactical about it. Yeah, what's thinking? I'M NOT WHOLE SET TO HUH? That's why he's doing that. You don't say it, okay, yeah, you guys. You know. Speaking on feminism, though, my favorite for a K drama character is a Badass Bitch, like as in I hate the ones that just move around too much, I can't stand up. This YS gotta be and I think K dramas like to do that anyway. They're like the girl who's like on job, has like seven fucking jobs. Yeah, that's this is that carries the family on her back, like a stressful as it is to watch the time, especially when she's trying to reach her goals and they're like GRANDPA's in hospital, she has to spend all the money on him and stuff. I'm like, Oh, it was so close, but I love those. I love those. Yeah, I'm fine, you know, it always guys. Yeah, there's always a hospital fee, and because she's a family girl, she pays it. You know, I mean this. And the siblings are always useless.

So she's the one that has to marry the whole family on her head. The brother who like knocks, Oh, my God, in Oh my funus might be this brother done knocked up somebody and how the brother's unemployed and had the nerve to get his God reignant, the money. But Oh my God, yeah, your own money. That is drawing. But I like to see when they're like that because to me it just shows up. You don't need anyone like. Yeah, you're not in this romantic relationship because you need this guy. It's purely like it's a choice one yam. Yeah, that's how you are as a person. that it makes sense. Why it's president, why would in fact talking about like possessive men being her drug, but only like in fiction? Made me think of like all the tropes that we see again again. So I think majority of dramas that you sometimes you get the gems that we all love. The majority of the time, if you've seen one, you've seen like, you've seen them all, basically. So, yeah, I've created a list. I say curate, but like some of my memories. One some peopling of the most common troops and this force for next Jo Joe, Romance, Jose and Dramas. So I've got plenty. Three for place, seven common tropes, and we can just say Yay or nay or why? So? The first one I've got is friends to lovers. Yay, big, Yay, yeah, big, get, yeah, okay, enemies to lovers. And for one example I've got is cheessing the trap. Yay, Yay, nay, most of the time, but sometimes, no, why? No? Sometimes, like she's in the trap. I didn't. I didn't like it. Okay, I didn't. You know what I was like? No, this guy took me a while to get around to it. I think the process. I hate it, but once it was like kind of cute, I was like, okay, I'm here for this. I can't like I was here for their like relationship at the same time. The second need syndrome hasn't been so strong. Oh, I was this lead syndrome and like so high and the actor, they got to play him as well. I was just like how do you expect me to root for the main guy, like you don't. Will get into second leave syndrome later, because a lot to say. One Hand of a job, that is one hand of a drug. Yeah, we also have this one is I think this might be one number one of all time. I can watch it, even if it's made. I'll watch it rich CEO, forceful, manifest as tired, tired, and I don't mind if it's a five out of ten. I was still watch, like they can watch. So I got, example, is Secretary Kim Love. That again. She was a woman who was working herself to the bone and the guy was begging her for marriage and she were saying no, my love. Next one is forced to live together. Yes, as my rag, I only watch the Chinese one of those and not the Korean ones for some reason. I think with the Korean ones it's because they always have a housemates and shit, and I'm like the Chinese ones are always yeah, ten out of ten, but so many Tianese ones as well. Taiwanee, I can't into time. When he's dramas, the dramas are the one my husband, Aron Yourn, check his stuff out. What okay, I just yeah, he's a ting and a half. Don't want me that day. Yeah, for stave together...

...hit. Next one is disapproving parents. So when example of this is boys of a flowers. Oh, that was my gateway flowers. I don't know, guys, did you watch me to your garden? Is it a Chinese version? And that is a Chinese version, and when I tell you, it was the most exaggerated thing in the whole world, as in the mom of the main lead refused for the guy to see the girl. So they both did a hunger strike. I don't know if that's in the other one. I don't but I'm not so bad. Literally, there was ash coming out of their mouth and starting and there on the brink of death all days. It was a lot. That was a forty episode. They're like, was that with the never finished that one, you know, I couldn't finish. It was just too long to me. Was It fucking? Oh God, Al Way, they were legit Diet. Oh No, it was for serious and it was really intense. I'M NOT gonna I'M NOT gonna lie, but I loved, loved that show, like the Chinese version. I still haven't watched those of the fires the original. I can watching the original, but again then wigs and the days. Yeah, but no motion. There's no and also in that one is the guy like he's like a real bully right to the girl, but is there a point where he literally smacked her? In that one, in the Japanese one, in the Chinese one, I like as in this girl came in with some food, like Oh, I've got some foofy as in. It went all over cut. How like what I'm like early alms? Well, I don't. She makes for the same guy. Yes, Oh my day, it was great. The it was so good. I'M NOT gonna lie. It was great. Watch it now. I'm not gonna like this. This is got me interest. It's interesting and it's really sweet, like it's super cute, but it just it tries to be hard hitting and it's it's too much. Was a bit in fact, confirmed with deny whether the original is that deep. Can't everyone was kind of deep, but I don't think it was as deep as like ash mouth hunger strikes, like I don't think that was going on. But yeah, it was mad, I think you say so. Serious another in. Yeah, yeah, I thought imagine it feeling like that. He made get into the Chinese one lad enough for me to add some demest of violence. But what I mean was that before they were a couple. Who was doing all that? Yeah, I was able together speaking. I mean it's still speaking, but would have been speaking next one was super possessive. I mean, if that's drug, listen, it's different. It's not like smacking Gouda. Many ones possessive like cheese in the track of the guy was waiting. That was like stalk and I will like. I'm not advocating that kind of possessive, but when that excreme button, wow's be aug just be over, just for like just put a water recordings domestic links to your carry, Harry for anythign. Okay, next. The next one is destined connection, and...

I that Goblin as an example here because the hole shows but dressing unit, yes, universal level love, yes, with the red string of faith's drink. Faith rest in the star drugs. What other examples you have? I could only think of Goblin. Granted, my drama CV isn't that long, but I could. Um, I can't even remember the top of my head. You know. Wasn't my nus, did it? They have a connection as kids. No, it wasn't. And that was a that was you watch. That could trick Kim. They did. Yes, it was. That could shrink. They were by kidnapped. Yea, I SME crazy woman. Yes, all my days. When they both have like the same flashbacks, D he sit together? Yeah, yeah, almos suppress the memory. So she didn't remember him from her childhood, but he remember Kariously. Yeah, remember, wait, knew each other as kids. Yeah, yeah, ride one is on. I Water Dragon Brian. I can't remember the name of drama. Bride of her back he books offing like that. Yeah, yeah, that's it's the same guy who's in it. But I didn't like it. I tried one episode, although, yeah, it wasn't that Britting. But they more kind of like universal lovers, like you know, loves between the UNIVERSES, and Kinda I think Chinese dramas tend to facause on that a lot more than like a dramas. It's true. What's a KOI has that tripe to but here attack has been one that remembers her. She doesn't remember. I'll see. I haven't even seen that. That's not yeah, guys, the La. I'M gonna buy the mine. Look at him, friend for Oh, guys, I need this y the king volumes for officially in English. Yeah, give me a fucking one day, Amazon, next day I'm getting and the side couple equal amount of duds. Oh Yeah, I love. He's to hang into right here, hang and cleave us. Spot does look at us. All right, come on, needs read with the quay, he's the one. Let us tell to door quicker, because literally, I hadn't heard of the like I heard it because I think probably you guys have probably read it. So then when I'm making out, you could just put it in the group chats. I was like, all right, I'm going to watch this one, and then that was it, like I didn't even look further into it, but I'm ready. I want it before the Manga came out. It's the Manaka is an independent artist. That's what she's not like with a like serialize anywhere. She's just like she published it online first and then it got published in bank here. Yeah, yeah, yeah, so I have one more on the list of troops and it's continuous in all caps, continuous misunderstandings, and the truck Kiman Kimi, Notiki as a, as an example of that. I was key. Was How that key? But I after like chapter thirty something, I just stopped. I was like, let me skip ahead and get together because I was getting...

...annoying and show Joe Maner does this all the time. I feel like that's why I kind of gravitate more towards more like mature and my stories now, like the boy adults maybe don't way like stuff like paradise, kiss and Manna. And why else? Is Along looad lines, because I need more of them. There's not enough anyway, because this jellyfish, it's so hey. Yeah, that's not many like that. There's a drought. Man. I feel like there's in many, but because they just didn't get popular, because they feature adults. As the high school is. Everything featuring high schools is always in the band. More like even if you look at saying the probing, the battle shoneens will be hype every season. But yeah, people are joining. What the obsession is with like youth? I think it's like even I'm watching a drama right now. It's like obvious kid who runs away from home and he's like my teens. It's got kid kid, but he's in like high school and he tells this girl that he's twenty four and she's twenty four. So now they've kind of got a romance story going on, and then it gets it closed that he's like a high school and I'm like this ruin everything. What's IT cooled? It's it's called old Olla la soul's kind of like areading where you're fa so latti though, kind of thing, right. Name. Yeah, I Korean. Web Thine is like the God of something, like you're in dramas, becaving the red. Yeah, got a high school to have God. There's a little God going on. Yeah, truly, but it's like ongoing. I have to watch every week. But it's just pissed me off that he's a high school and now I'm like a you like mine, Teen Bucks. Still so annoying. Yeah, speaking of more mature love stories, there was one, I don't know if you remember it, in Forbidden Planet at fact, there's these tea. They were high school friends and they reconnected like after college in the both adults now and he's got an accident in between the time they were speaking. I want to buy that one. Yeah, he's in a wheelchair now and it's all about her. Like day we connect and the start like a romantic relationship and she has to let confront her and budge prejudices against like the disable. People like all this stuff and they have to like a date theylership. I was just like I need more man, but there is nothing out there like, but I don't name, I don't want to cover like they were holding hands and he was in the world. Shaw was like, okay, tonight, write the synopsis and I looks for Ourd are always really nice as well. Why didn't we get it? I was panicking. We had ten minutes left, because that's because like this, five minutes, house husband and I've got the name. I will in like our thread, after which women, if I remember, I will lock it up. But yeah, for sure, back four years. But Yeah, how many? Take the last one? That was the last one. So what is you guys favorite? Troy might have to be the rich CEO Horse for full sessions. It's going to hit harder now than ever before. But back into my I S. Yeah, we might be this again. That is my favorite as well. It's because it's like the girls never a beggar, you know. Yeah, that would a guy begging, like good one exactly. It's just that Jin lie girl and she's fall into a bit of money to see it. He deserves the Queen. Literally. That drug hits the hardest as well when the guy realizes how rich he is and she gets overwhelmed and the like kind of pass her off and...

...she's like, Oh, I'm compete that overwhelter middle of the night, like no pias me, I'm sorry, I'm rich or so true? Is it the same for you guys as well? Yeah, like, yeah, that's that's my drug because, like the adults as well, like I'm I think I'm kind of tired of high schoolers now. Yeah, me too, I'm yeah, you've ever rich C and then the evil he's evil mom that you got at the extra spice as well, like and it's when letting no one's refreshing, though, and nice mom. I really like a nice mom or a nice grandma, you know, like the Mom Bey will what the grandma who's need the nice grandma to email. You need someone on your side kind of thing. And so I second you came and was so good because, like literally the whole family was nice. They had their secrets and stuff, but he like, even when the sun was misbehaving, they would go like behind the sons back to beg the woman, like please forgive us, because she was so on job. He's like, he's he's us this, but please, like accepting. Yeah, but we love. I love an evil mom and an evil sister as well. That's as exercise on my high yeah, binkle in me. It's definitely like being forced to live with each other and the universal love, like the fake next you kind of love that stuff. Man, what can I say? I'm sophy romantic. Feet down, so kind of feels sweet. Eat down and we're sleeve. May this hope. There's no pretense to be happy in this episode. That's a serious yeah, I love that. Cool. Trying to think of other tropes. I feel like there's another one. You know, when they contract marriage, is forced marriages. Yeah, now, just convenience my bag. This one happens. I need Druma recommendations for this. I don't think I've seen one with this is like my Mr Oh or something. Oh my God. She found this guy from the mountains. Its like a guy from a rule village, and I I'm not sure what brought him down. I think he was like looking for something and she met him up there and she's constantly being told that she's single chess, so go find somebody. So I think she just married him to get on everything off her back. I love it, but yeah, it's very good. What was my Miss Oh, yeah, I think that's what it's calling. Is it on Netflix? This is our work it tonight, ha ha ha. Let me get it out. I can't even lie like the best contact marriage because this is my first life. Oh, I loved that. It was so that one real as fuck. Yeah, because it was always not goople. He's on like a scale of like the ASPURGE has since like scale with it seems that way. Yeah, for sure, but I'm not sure if I did that was confirmed or not. But banging like that was so if I felt like a book. Really it was written like how you read, kind of like dramatic, not dramatic, but like soul searching kind of books. That can't explain it, but yeah, I had that vibe. It was really yeah, there's a Taiwanese drama called convenient love, and that's a contract marriage, but dealer to bits and well, she's out, poor girl, but she's an upandcoming actress. So I recommend that check that one out. Really good. Yeah, it's got two...

...drugs, so I'll go wrong with it. And the guys low. Keeping US there. Let's talk about the screamers. is going to go across the school the Times that displays possessing man. Yeah, it's a new segments. Counseling Girls, counseling girls kill. Dad. You have anything unpacked? It's like in real life. I'll shy it down, but the Carlo to her voice with this. Oh yeah, it's called my contractive husband. Mr Oh, I'm so done self explantory. Yeah, as seen some Dere along the four lights. Yeah, Oh, where is it? The one where she's supposed to live in the House with the four guys? Yeah, so it's like fo handsome men one how Oh, yeah, at some point I think everybody in the house lights her, so she has to like take a pick. Basically, know what it's like if I'm a sweet because even though they're all like all and horror and stuff, it's still seems like they're like friends as well. So it's kind of Nice. You're just standing like Harem, like trope. I guess you didn't really see that much in show, Joe. It's more Shan and thing. Where's that one guy and all the girls love him? I can't stand it. But where's the reverse? I might be hey, I'm looking eminism looking. Yeah, let's go with that. Feminism, met lize. Do you guys like the old ones, like the ones that have been filmed in like two thousand and eight and stuff, as are the ones I used to watch? When I was in school. So thincause I got started out with like the glossy high budget dramas. I don't want me too. It's a struggle. Yeah, but he's in a trap with you. But I like them, though, because I'm the same. I've started with the two thousand and sixteen glossy big budget ones, but because of Goblin, you know, our King Gone You. He's like a Kay dam, a veteran, so you can go back and look at some stuff. And he had the driver called coffee prints. That's the oldest one I've watched. Seth that we like death the blueprint. That is the group. It's so, so good and it's like the older ones. I think have better write in for sure. Completely unskippable. Just saying me, stiff up. Yeah, unspippable. Literally so good. And then I watched pastor, you know, the dad from parasite. Oh, yeah, he was in coffee prince. I was like, Oh, I need to follow your career. I'm going to watch it now. Yeah, he's a really famous actor. He's just done. He's fun, like so many. He's Sonya books, like. Yeah, parasites, like, I've seen you in something. Yeah, so I was like I'm I'm following his career from coffee prints and he did a show called pastor, another Banger, and I think it is like two thousand and nine. I love the writing of the old ones. I just can't find like proper good ones. So I just need any recommendations. Girls, have you seen Golong? No, what's that? It's basically the girls forced to marry like the Prince of Korea. Obviously they don't have a one key at the moment, but like in this fake also a version of care. She's kind of like me to marry into like the royal family,...

...and like we just follows her life there like you know, contract marriage truth. HMM. Yeah, that's really old. I think that's like from two thousand and four or something. So, okay, I remember. Don't quite me on that. Let me quickly Google. Yes, the class of old ones year. Do they hate mine before they get married? Or she hates him? Yeah, it hasn't insects. Yeah, their hands are definitely geled in these ones, by the way, sticks. It's just like you're trying to convice me. This guy's a hot dog, but his hair is so dumb, like guys. You know what else I'm really toxic for doing when I read a drama and I'm like, Oh, they mus look good and they're like, you open it and then maindeed is like a debty. What I mean, why would not watch? Because you have to like root for them in it. And if yeah, and you have to do you have to be like, as if I was you, I do. I means like yeah, on our episodes costs there. Yes, a long time to watch someone WHO's so I'm not gonna lie. I'm so glad that they're like stupidly picking with casting, because what? But I thought that way about something that you watch, Kira, because you told us to watch it. I was like cool, and then I opened it and I was like, oh, but I'll find it. I think the one in the clip you sent and he's flaking and needs to it all flaking. They're finding one of them. While those one specific clip, I feel like he's playing like a bar something and he fla. It's the other guy and the spiky hair. I don't know, but is it like is it about writing here? I think all like the one with like a library or librarian, or I think I know which one you're talking about, and it was quite a new one as well. I think of a book something like betther than, really narrowed. Yeah, I've definitely recommended. Romance is a bonus book. Yet Oh really, yeah, he's not hot. I don't find it like you think he's. No, I don't. I don't thought it was. I was like okay, I was like he's not, like you don't work or anything back that I could see why he's attractive. I would that conventionally attractive, even though I don't find him at trapperation said it will. You're just like sounds just like. Oh yeah, it was all right, like that's not the reason why I stopped watching it. I was just like interesting at the point, at the point that I recommended to I thought it was very good k drama, but since then I've seen more k dramas and I'm just like, okay, it's kind of mid the yeah, really, I didn't need to feel bad about not finishing it then. I mean feel bad because I mean I'm not gonna feel bad because you stuff. We finished cobbling. So it's like, excuse me, not, you finished the stars without me. You want to go there. How does that relate to what we're discussing right now. I'm dead. Have you finished gobbling? Don't, else I'm not doing you for I'm so judging you, guys, and high follow you, guys, but only two people are you just like me. She got B it's put it. And if you not like me, yeah, guys, I judge you hard for that, meaty, and you like I don't know since, and I haven't missed shit. You're ugly shaving. Yeah, thank got fs accessible. So finishing goblin means I'd have to like go to kiss...

Asian or something like that. And it's also true. You get yeah, if Goblin was on Netflix, I would have been finished it. Oh, yeah, like, I hate. I'm not paying for Vicky, and there's adds are annoying. The odds are really bad. It's like three pounds, though, if you're seriously your KA drama bag. I got the point hours down bad back to back. I don't care for it. I need to be really bad if se can binge. Yeah, only two I really want to watch. That would be on Paky. Is Goblin and the one he said that I would like because it's my first life, like right the beginning. That was on the he said that I would like, oh, yes, I really forgot. Fuck, but that one, but you har under the name. One, I remember the name. Those are the only two that I would what. Yeah, it's just on Netflix, you know. So I can't really justify any money to q k dramas. Yeah, I hear it. It's not worth it if you're not like deep in your bag, which is what I stopped paying puts because I just stopped watching it back to back. Yeah, she hadn't seen a K drama property since I came back from Korea. I can't do it anymore. What did it does? Yeah, the mail was left it, but it's more like I'll see things and I recognize ether, like I know, but yeah, I don't go there. You need to know. One day, probably parents came all the way. I neither of US decided to go to the subway together. I got yeah, there's some way at home, like, I mean we but you have to live out the K drama fantis. Oh, yeah, guys like going to all those cool cafes that they go to. We went to basking and Robins, remember, yes, we did. Sway, there was one in my building. I'm what, guys, I'm just going on a K drama to all, basically because there are some spots where they have a lunch and I'm like a, yeah, I could eat up to here and let you I'm big career in energy. So, like, sorry, honest when, like, when I went to go and to think if we out in Korea, like I only went there because, like she was there and my friends with her brother. So, like career was not on my like list like that. I like I watch my but I was like no, and then since I've been I'm like, Damn, now I kind of want to do the whole experience. A drama stuff pay. Okay, drama tours, you man. Yeah, actually do. They need his money to be made. But yeah, I think that's a good place to leave it. Guys, this is a great discussion. I thought empowered to go back and finish scrubbling. Wait, can you see in coffee prints? Just watch that like dust. I'm just telling you to watch that literally. Okay, yeah, but the girls strong in that as well. She carries the family on her back because, okay, cool. I would actually need to go back and listen to this and like down all the recommendations because even, yeah, I've heard some of you like ones that I'm not for says just hearing you guys talk about kind of encouraging me to never mar that contract, my one. But she collected the husband from the mountain. That might get me back into game. She could have a feet. I have a feeling mountain hosband. Yeah, but is a good one. Are you know coffee prints? It's like to you's like, would you call it what you call Androgynous? Yeah, okay, like. And so she gets a job because this new cafe is hiring and the only one boys and then, like, the boss...

...was in love with her, whilst she's our mom and it's it's a lot and it's really good, Mulin type beat. It's so good. But he didn't fall along with Ah, we did. I don't. Yeah, any fell in love with me alarm when she was a man, and then he felt betrayed. We found that's yours is literally Mulan like for Real. It's it's got all in high school, first come club vibes. I've never watched that. You know, I haven't either. Oh, okay, wait, one of US watched it, apart for a bit fat we're fake, wow, wow, right now, go on the mood. He's about that just saying putting out there. Or okay, I think when that's first got into anime, as in like watching it in three parts on Youtube, I tested it out, but I was around the same time I was watching Peach Gard and I was like to deep into that for anything else. That's a toxic one, toxic, toxic, animely. It was so good. Guys, wait, what is the most toxic thing you've watched? HMM, now, yes, it's. No, I didn't watch it, but I read the Manga. It was a hot mess. I didn't finish it. Hot Gimmick, hot gimmick. Now my me, Guy, horr if you, if you, I will resurface a tweet thread I made because I was thinking there's something else. I went by her. I didn't put twenty together. That was the same author that wrote Hot Gimmick and I was just like, I went back to look at everything she around my animal list to see everything she's ever written, and like the song wrong with her, like she's never written anything no more. I'm glad hot gimmick. The guy is literally he treats her like he hates her. Basically, there's no kind of justification explanation for why they should be together and she's trying to spin it in a way that that it should be romantic. But he like he's verbally, emotionally, physically, like abusive. He's like I got to like the third volume because it's like weight was getting on here. They're trying to like she's trying to like justify everything. She must have a humidiation fetish or so. I'M gonna stop reading right here. The same thing is this woman. He's in the late twenty. She doesn't know where her life is going's like I need Tokund, the husband Aum died, and she needs to say, like Lidy, I forgot the Japanese time for it. Basically not arranged marriage, but they kind of like they say each I can imagine to the thing. Yeah, yeah, I'd imagine if, Oh, yeah, he's like a monk and everything, and you like serious, like he's like a proper man and everything. So you think this is going to be a good man for her and he ends up being like he's possessive, but not in the way that you can if I drop your basically like dropped it. If you can't have any friends, forget your family's sit in my house. Baha blond. Give up on your live, up on your career. You need to travel as you not in and like she's like, oh no, but I love black. Oh. I get from ad to sad, like a don't jail. She live in jail because of him, like she couldn't leave the house past five pm or something like that, and I was just Oh, dad, closed a close. Oh wait a second, I thought you meant that she went to jail because of him. As I'm got lots of was. This guy's done it all. I said, let I close the RUTHING TAB as at. Let me look at the tags for this, and like there's new psychological is. I Says Romance Drama. She's like a prisoner in their own home, basically, because this is, this does not spark joy and all her shits like that. There's another one and there's like a really inappropriate relationship with a teacher and a student, and they be like, Oh yeah, it's like a senior high school of our blinds, just a power do im like that's weird. It's not. You neednt the guys that she fourteen years old and the teachers like in her late s. You don't find out one like a few chapters in it is like, God damn it, like yeah, you just go good bye, that's over there. Yeah, so Google Meeky I horror is her name, and she's got quite even want to see this shit.

I don't think I'd be. Never written. She's never written one good thing in her life. But dumb. I don't know that name. Just when Jay said, yeah, so hot gimmick is the most toxic been I've read. Okay, yeah, I think for me it's Nana. For sure. You guys are talking about this the other day. What you up that? No boos a bomb. I'm just saying, but it was like someone who was defending like toxic anime guys right to different topsic ice, you guys, and I thank you. Guys are there. Yeah, why, thanks, you ruined my life. It's time this right to go make a cup, a cup of teams. You came back. It's like we're and open up my ass and I'm like, what is going on?

I'm sorry, sad, use arms lest like. You can be as kind hearted as you want, but who would hate a guy like that? For Yourself, trash shoot me because just because none's dumb in it. Yeah, I think she should have ended up whenever. I'M NOT gonna lie. She should. Would have both ended up in my grog because they believe would have ruined him. We need someone like. They've been on this street. Love is not they love the love guy. I'm sorry, you guys know that NA is toxic. She would have ruined him and he would have come homeless from distress. You know it. He would literally you know, Fil Mitchell is a dust. That's what he would have turned into. But to see me, you say, maybe alcoholic. Let's kiss him. I'm disgusting, Emotional Abes Central. That's him. Not really know, cuse the lines were clear to begin with. Nana, it's just like her. She knew what I was. She's a puppy. That's literally it. This has been a great discussion, guys.
