FIRST IMPRESSION: Let’s Eat Season 2 Episode 1

vlcsnap-2015-04-07-21h51m00s64

Let’s Eat is back with Season 2! First of all, this episode is not a recap, nor a discussion, unlike what I did for season 1. It’s just a review after I watched the first episode. I would probably write up another post sometime this week, if I have time.

I loved the first season, and despite being excited about a second season, it’s still upsetting that most of the cast from season 1 is not returning 😦

I still decided to give it a try, and after watching the first episode, I have mixed feelings. The episode wasn’t bad, but my love for season 1 casts is stopping me from loving the casts in season 2. Maybe I just need time, but it’s really hard to see Daeyoung with another girl and not Sookyung 😦

What makes it even harder is that, it seems like the drama is setting up Daeyoung and Sooji to be in a relationship early in the game, or rather romance might play a big part in the drama. In season 1, the romance wasn’t the main draw – but the relationship between the neighbors and their love for food.

Anyway, in this first episode, we find out that Daeyoung and Sooji are ex-classmates, before Daeyoung transferred school – and Sooji is holding a grudge against him for that. *yawns* are we seriously doing that kind of romance, drama? please don’t disappoint. 

Besides that – am I the only one who doesn’t fall for the food porn???

The best part about Let’s Eat is always THE FOOD. However, in this episode, the food porn is not satisfying at all. When Daeyoung eats, it looks really good – but I don’t feel anything watching the others eat. Maybe it’s because Doojoon has been doing it since season one – or maybe I just need to stop thinking about season 1 – but how not to 😦

Of course not all is bad – in fact, it’s a pretty alright episode and a good start and I think it might be fun. Maybe I had too high expectations and too much love for season 1.

Well, I need to give myself more time to warm up to the casts (they’re all did great though in this episode). Let’s hope that it will good and I need more food porn!

Oh and I think to enjoy this season, I probably have to forget about season one – or rather think of it as a wholly separate drama, because season one is still too dear to my heart.

  1. Thanks for your thoughts. I was hoping this would be some alternate reality version, or maybe even Sookyung was off studying somewhere and Daeyoung would be play “cupid” to another main couple.

    But seeing how this is, then I will pass.

    This is the reason I started to watch Asian TV series and stop with American ones.

    I used to love American TV series, but when I realized how many of my favorite characters were destroyed because the producers wanted to keep dragging out the story so they could have multiple seasons, I realized it was no longer for me.

    That’s what I love about Asian TV series. That the stories are self contained and the end on a good note.

    I really hope Season 2 bombs and gets horrible ratings. Because I don’t want this to be a trend. And have them destroy even more of my beloved characters.

    • wow. you must feel so entitled “I really hope Season 2 bombs and gets horrible ratings. Because I don’t want this to be a trend. And have them destroy even more of my beloved characters” that you want a tv show to fail and people to lose money because they did not retain your favorite character.
      and also this fallacy that all american shows are bad and all korean shows are good is just a lie. they are are bad and good shows on both sides

    • I’m upset about the cast change too, and they could have totally made it like an Answer Me series – where it’s a similar concept but different characters and not a continuation.

      Let’s just think of it in a good way, and pretend that it’s a whole new story and a whole new Daeyoung, not season 1 Daeyoung. I doubt they would mention Sookyung or anyone else in season 1 anymore. After all, it is a good drama, and we can only enjoy it if we change our mindset a little 🙂

      • Hahaha. Relaxx~ I think most of the fans of season 1 are kind of upset because the story is sort of a continuation but without the same casts and they made the couple break up.

        I don’t think she would really mean it, and she’s probably just venting her frustrations. I do agree that not all shows are bad/good. No matter what language or which country a show is from – they all have a fair share of good and bad dramas 🙂

  3. I’ve been trying to see find first impression of Let’s Eat 2 and thanks god I found you. I’m like you. I mean the biggest reason I love Let’s Eat was the cast was perfect in sense when they eat, I’m like dying. But it feels awkward with the new cast. Like when they eat, I’m like okay….I’m not craving anything. I like the new actress Seo Hyun Ji, but she doesn’t have that extra appeal that Lee Soo Kyung had. She was so loveable in her own way. :c
