JoAnne: I have been looking forward to this, I saw a glimpse of the Prettiest Puppy.
Mary: MY BIDET HOPES!!! Demolished. Destroyed. Crushed like a newlywed's gourd... T_______T koko, think of another fun gift for Rim. Quick!
becca: Gift of koko.... O_o Am I gonna have to lock myself in the supply cabinet again?
잼/재미), prompting the hosts to comment that they're becoming similar.
I loathe mussels, but will eat raw oysters. Other shellfish (steamers, cherry stones, little necks, etc) I prefer steamed. But then quoahogs must be diced and breaded. You know, they don't spend THAT much time together, so I do find it interesting how they are really feeding off each other's little personality quirks. Whether it's actually interest that is developing, we might not know... but they definitely click.
Mary: I have not tried eating raw seafood. Maybe I will when I get to Seoul? Someday.
So confused. They don't have fun, or they don't have jam?
No fun without jam, of course!
That's right, Rim. Egg her on. Ruin the girl completely. She will turn the tables on you in the end! He may be pushing the envelope but I honestly think that she is the boss in that relationship.
Mary: Of course So-eun is the boss. Rim might sneak in some skinship, but he is PUTTY when So-eun wants something. Except compliments about her kimchi jigae. That's the only thing Rim doesn't compromise on. Heehee
becca: So-eun unni, fighting!!
He also tells her he is good at taking things off. He is currently peeling shrimps one should add. He feeds her and she bites him a little. All they do is joke around when they meet, he says. Everybody (including Nam) agrees. At the end of the dinner he holds up his thumb - and the thumb bump. Thumb kiss?
Mary: But that mischievous look after "good at taking things off"... you know he totally means other things. Though So-eun and the hosts Nam and Misun refuse to take the bait. Haha poor Rim.
Is it just me, or do you all FEEL the happiness from them? They have such a good time together. I wonder if they think of this as the best jobs they've ever had.
becca: Getting paid to hang out and play house with a fun, incredibly attractive person? Yeah, they seem pretty pleased with it. :)
I love that he's a shopper.
Mary: Oh. I thought he came from a fanmeet in China.... but Rim is looking great. :))))
becca: They. Are. So. Cute. 앙~!
Mary: Rim comments that So-eun is confusing, sometimes he thinks she likes him back, only to get his hopes crushed. He called it a "green light". It's a term from this cool show on jtbc where the hosts take calls/letters from viewers describing a situation. (ie) "A cute coworker always brings me lunch and kakaotalks me, do you think he's interested in me?" Then the hosts press a red/green light to vote. Haha. I think we're all hitting green light here for So-eun and Rim. It's hard to tell which is true and which is acting with this couple...
becca: *furiously hitting green light*
Once there, they need to break a gourd. They do a round of rock, paper, scissors (she wins) and then, she attempts to break the thing on his head. Only, it doesn't break. That must have hurt! But it's a good sign, yes?
That his head is made of stone? Or that the gourd is not rotten?
Mary: Of course it's good news that his head is hard. Because you can't help but wonder, is Rim also hard anywhere else? *runs away*
becca: *ignoring the dirty unni* Did anyone else notice that the first time it didn't break, she was the first one to go in for a hug? I'm so ridiculously happy about that! *happy dance*
(HAHAHA he strips in front of the bathroom cams and the show censors it using that kakaotalk butt sticker! Man, they should've used apples.) While he's at it, she quickly puts something else in another room. Another present? Oh! it's a huge Pepero Day gift basket. He is speechless after that. Why did she do that, he muses after he can speak again. Does she want to ... kiss? Play the ppe-ppe/ppo-ppo game?
How could he have missed the opportunity to give one to HER?
Mary: His pervert-mode is not on 100%, I see....
But honestly how does she NOT fall for him?
Mary: Does she not?
becca: Not falling is an impossibility at this point, I think. I'm actually kinda worried about her. *bites nails*
I think he'd be hurt worse by her than her by him. What say ye?
Mary: I think it'd be opposite. T_____T Rim seems to have fallen quickly. Whereas So-eun is fighting it. So if/when she falls, it's going to be harder on her. Don't you think?
becca: Stop making me worry!! They'd both be hurt!! ㅠㅠ
They are so good together, honestly. This was a genius pairing.
becca: Sometimes I think it's TOO good.
Mary: I saw something in that box that's very similar to my secret gift for So-eun. I'm so sad right now. Like, all my nice ideas, they already gave each other. I feel so lonely.... I'm left with nothing now. T__________T
becca: I can't believe I'm saying this, but... you'll always have koko.
More: Chinese dolls that look like them and an umbrella. A one person umbrella. To hide behind (it's her that says that!) - and make kissing noises. Ah, you babies. He also gives her a 50 year calendar with his face, for her to remember him.
Mary: OMG, Rim! I was obsessed with those 50-year-calendar keychains too!!! When I first found them in our university's souvenir shop, I kept giving them to friends. It's an awesome thing. And it's funny that Rim seems to be a bit of a shopaholic when it comes to these stuff. He also is obsessed with food supplements. Chitosan. Silymarin. Protein shakes...
What exactly is glowing, and how did he get it to glow, exactly?
HAHAHAHAHA he should've saved it for their honeymoon. On Christmas.
becca: *soaking in their cuteness*
Mary: The soompiers are going crazy about how he thoughtfully draped the blanket on her legs though. Because it's cold? Because... modesty? All of the above?
He also brought baby pictures. And his graduation picture. She admires his dork and his beauty - and isn't interested in his friends (smart girl). More word puns. She's catching on! "You've been infected", he says. She is corrupted, I'd say, but we like it.
*STRANGLING KOKO FROM THE CUUUUUUUUUUUTE*
BABY RIMS. BABY SO-EUNS. NOW. *tries to reach into screen and nudge them closer*
(PS I kept waiting for the "ham" food. But when I googled what a "ham" is, it's not food, but a wedding tradition.)
They're starting to invite people to their wedding:
First on his list: Kim Min-kyo (SNL, Surplus Princess). He feels sorry for Rim's wife.
Second: Park Gyuri! Oh, WTFParis! Don't invite Alex though!!!
Mary: I squealed so much to hear Gyuri's voice. I ship them. Basically, I ship everyone with Rim.
(PS Speaking of Alex, trotwood sent us a link to his new drama, Love Frequency, also on MBC Queen. LOL.) (Mary, are you going to watch?)
Is So-eun a bit jealous? YES! Now it's her turn.
Her (again): Kang Ha-neul from Girl Ghost Story Movie! *violent heartbeams*
Him: F(x)'s Victoria from Zhang Li Yin's MVs where they both star with EXO's Tao!
Her: Seo Kang-joon (Luscious from Cunning Single Lady) (they were the OTP in a web drama, After School Bokbulbok). "Bring 50 dollars", says Rim. If he goes in person, he'll get a 10 dollar discount. (Why is she not inviting Pervy Mermaid?!)
There must be more, maybe she'll be there anyway. And we need Big, and Second, and Kim Seul Gi and EVERYONE.
Mary: I feel bad for the 5urprise guys... they're still new and don't have a lot of money. I just feel embarrassed every time Rim makes a money joke in front of them. But he doesn't know their story like we saw in Roommate Season 1. So I guess this is Rim just being a socially awkward doofus again.
becca: I don't think they took it seriously, though, and I don't think he meant it seriously. *pat pat* Your Oppa isn't trying to be an ass.
Luscious and his group were in a show with Kim So Eun - After School Bokbulbok. It's strange. Kids in highschool, they have a club, they ask her to join for some reason, then they do mission cards that send them on adventures. I haven't seen all the episodes. It's kind of Japanese-y, that sort of oddness.
Luscious calls Rim Brother-in-Law and demands a meal from him. Now. And it'll better be beef. Ahahaha. Okay, says Rim, but bring 40 Dollars. As a wedding gift pre-payment.
It's "Meet the Friends" next! It's Seo Kang-joon, Yoo-il (from 5urprise as well), and Kang Tae-oh. Also from that band. Oh, they are pretty. They all want to call Rim Brother-in-Law. Rim demands his 50 Dollars, but the boys haven't brought it. They will at the wedding though. So ... Kang-joon's first kiss was with So-eun? Rim doesn't like to hear that. At all. Of course.
Well I bet they didn't really kiss, but I do wonder if he's a good kisser. Still wondering why he was SO DUMB on Roommates.
They're shocked that he touches her face? Oh, boys... you haven't been watching, have you?
Mary: The Rim Showcase??? MMMHMMM I'D WATCH THAT.
becca: It occurred to me that it would be kind of awkward to hang out with these two. The guy near the window seems to be enjoying it, though.
I did think about that, that he must have bought some of those gifts in China. He really throws himself into things.
Mary: Oppa, throw yourself into me. Throw-chuseyo.
I wonder if he really did feel a bit pissy about it, though. Jealousy can sneak up on you.
becca: He did look really jealous as it was happening. Heheh.
*melts* They're SO freaking cute.
Mary: If I were So-eun, I'd hit him. Kinda funny how Rim was obviously acting out during the lunch. Feeling threatened, Rimmie?
becca: I think he is!
Not very polite, Pretty Puppy! I wonder what he'd be like? He so was not good on Roommates. But that might not have been his fault. Now, his group-mate, Lee Tae Hwan - him I'd like to see. He's currently the Big Puppy on Choi and Prejudice. (Oh, he is a love! And he's actually younger than me! I'm a pervy noona!!)
Mary: I like the guy near the window! You can see him trying to keep up a neutral but fun, chatty atmosphere. ^___^ His name is Yoo-il. Yoo-il, may the drama gods bless you for being a suave entertainer!
becca: Yes, what Mary said! I like this guy, though I have never seen him before.
Oh, Rim. I can see a case for him being shy. He always puts on a show. That's very often a way to hide.
Mary: Yep. The dorkiness seems like a weapon. It's like, you're preemptively being corny so it doesn't hurt if they think you're corny. Because if you act normal and serious and they still find you corny, that'd hurt. *sadface*
becca: It's easier to choose to be the weirdo than to have other people label you as one and reject you. :(
She says she has bitter feelings now, which is the same word as muscle stiffness, so Rim demands to know where and wants to look.
Sigh. He never gives up, the horndog.
becca: She said it was in her finger, and he kissed it. *squee*
I wonder who she thinks is the best singer there is. Park Hyo Shin! Yes! Who knows.
Mary: I bet his name starts with Nich and ends with Khun.
CommentsHe can't fluster her anymore. Soon, she'll be the boss. Rim, I think you've lost all authority.
Oh, she is already the boss. She just needs to realize it.
Mary: LOL. What authority???
becca: She has him wrapped around her little finger, and he is loving every single minute of it. So am I.
