18. Father is Strange (Drama Deep Dive)

Anisa and Paroma go deep into last year's best family drama with LollyPip (long-time recapper of korean dramas at Dramabeans). All three had much to say (and there were many, MANY characters to talk about) so this episode runs to just over 100 minutes. Pace yourselves. And use the Time Stamps below to find the segments where your favourite Byung/Lee family member (or their better half) was discussed! Follow us on Twitter: @dramasoverflow/ And find LollyPip @LollyPipKD TIME STAMP: 00:01:36 - Overall thoughts on the drama (Spoiler alert: WE LOVED IT) 00:04:59 - Maknae Ra-young, her robotic but sweet soccer player, and how she grew on Anisa 00:06:49 - Lee Joon as self-involved but adorable Ahn Joong-hee 00:12:58 - Our thoughts on the central identity theft plot.
