Leaking Friends

Posted by Stephanie on November 1, 2013


Barefoot FriendsIf you followed the series here, you’ll know I missed the last two Barefoot Friends episodes. It’s mostly not my fault. DramaFever has apparently changed the day that they release the episode on their site. Wednesday came around and there I was, ready to watch, and the site had crashed due to the usual Heirs furor. Then Thursday came around, I was able to watch half the episode, fell asleep, went to rewatch the rest and DF was locked up again. After that it no longer fit into the schedule.

This week it again it came out late and my schedule couldn’t accommodate.

Then? This news came out: Kim Hyun Joong is dropping Barefoot Friends! My response? NOoooooOOoo! Apparently, the show no longer fits into his schedule what with his upcoming drama (which last I checked got bumped for Jang Geun Suk’s new drama, and still doesn’t actually have a network yet) which is doing most of it’s filming in China. It’s interesting how he’s decided to officially leave the show, where Eun Hyuk just slipped away from us. So first Bum Soo, then Si Yoon, next Eun Hyuk, and now Kim Hyun Joong? I don’t know if my heart can take anymore. And on top of that the rumor that Yoon Shi Yoon might leave?

With the cooking, cooking, and cooking, I’ve been wondering if there would ever be a point where I would decide to drop Barefoot Friends. I know a lot of you read the post, but how many different ways can I say, “Again with the cooking?” or “Then Ho Dong crammed his mouth full of food…” or “I have no idea who these ‘stars’ are.”
Now with this news of Kim Hyun Joong’s departure? I think this is it for me guys. Which is too bad, because I did actually laugh at last weeks episode. There was always just enough to keep me hanging in there. Maybe if they get off that cooking kick. Maybe if Eun Hyuk comes back. Maybe….
For now I will miss all my friends but am glad to have had the opportunity to have gotten to know them.

Top 10 Barefoot Friends Moments

1) Yoon Shi Yoon and Kim Hyun Joong on their camping trip, performing Once. The other highlight of the trip is Yoon Shi Yoon trying to feed Kim Hyun Joong.

2) Yoon Shi Yoon trying to make conversation with the Australian tourist with Gangnam Style. “You know Gangnam Style?”.

3) Seeing all our friends achieve their success in the last diving episode. After watching them from the very beginning, at the end I cried right along with Uee and the Coach.

4) Every time the producers did a Kim Hyun Joong slo-mo Boys Over Flowers/Almost Paradise reference–which at the beginning of the show was pretty much whenever he appeared on screen.

5) Lee Hyori I started out actually disliking Lee Hyori but by the end of her guest episodes? Her antics not only turned me around, it actually made me into a bit of a fan.SAK EP8 18
6) While throughout the episode I grew to dislike the Harlem Shake, it doesn’t change the big WAHOO I got watching them perform it at the end.

7) Remember this?

8) Probably the highlight of all the cooking episodes? Visiting Kim Ji Hoon. Love him, his addiction to online shopping, and his guy apartment complete with drying underwear and pictures of himself.

9) Kiakaka! The final ‘Write your Story’ songs. Epik High and Tablo made me super happy and surprisingly, the performances were great! Now how can I get these songs for my very own?Screenshot 2013-08-21 at 8.44.44 AM
