I'm still impressed by the amount of attention/success they are getting. I find it really surprising and interesting that some of them are taking part/interest in their make up and styling.

Beoumjune decides to get the kids something healthy for breakfast. He may have went a little overboard lol. Then his mother and grandmother comes for a visit. We meet with Rawon again, she made her first appearances years ago when Rohui came to see her. She is freaking awesome, and I would like a spin off show with her and Queen Lani please. William has a really yucky habit, and Ben wants his own personal space. Jooho buys something for the kids, and is an example that some things need to be seen in person instead of buying online. Then he takes the kids to look at flowers and on to dinner, where Naeun is concerned about the things he's eating.

This has been fun the first two weeks! There's parts of the fangirl stuff I don't love, but Kim Jae Wook is perfect in this show. It's already getting into some of my favorite romcom tropes. Anyone else watching?

After tweeting "should I do a podcast" on March 31, Eric Nam has launched his own kpop podcast. Kpop Daebak is a show about the latest kpop releases each week, plus tidbits about working in the industry from Eric. There are also corresponding Youtube and Spotify playlists so listeners can check out the songs discussed in each episode.

The show started on April 8 and so far only has 3 episodes, but Eric has mentioned wanting to bring on celebrity guests in the future.

You can listen to the podcast on iTunes or your preferred podcast app.

I think it's fairly entertaining so far; not sure how he'd handle bringing guests on in a podcast medium since not all of them would speak English (one of the guests he mentioned was JooE for example.) Maybe upload the audio on youtube and subtitle it? idk
