In the midst of enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), a lot of us are slowly and *carefully* drawing our friends and relatives to the world of K-dramas. It seems like the same goes for celebrities because LJ Reyes and Paolo Contis recently did a review vlog for Paolo's first three K-dramas: Descendants Of The Sun, Crash Landing On You, and Itaewon Class.
Paolo, a certified K-drama newbie, said he couldn't remember the characters' names and that he had to adjust a lot to reading subtitles while watching! But out of all the shows they watched, he absolutely loved Crash Landing On You and gave it a score of 9.5 out of 10.
"Alam mo, nafe-feel ko na yung bias mo, ha," LJ, who loved Descendants Of The Sun and Itaewon Class more, told him.
But Paolo really loved CLOY, saying, "Siyempre ako mahirap ako patawanin in terms of comedy. The fact na hindi ko sila maintindihan magsalita [pero] tawang-tawa ako sa mga sundalo ni Captain Ri, tapos yung mga babae sa labas—yung mga chismosang kapitbahay."
He added: "Charming yung dalawang bida, lalo si Captain Ri na laging mapula yung mata. Lahat, kahit yung 'kontrabida' [Seo Dan and Gu Seung-jun]."
Paolo also commended the "wholesomeness" of K-dramas and the fact that the villains always have their own backstories.
Other fun moments during their review: When the video was interrupted by their daughter Summer waking up, when they *bickered* and defended their own personal faves, and when Paolo made an ~inappropriate~ joke and LJ said he wouldn't get to eat dinner because of it.
Watch the full vlog here:
The couple will be watching Hi Bye, Mama! next (they even have a list on LJ's notepad). Happy binge-watching, LJ and Paolo!
