Nationwide ratings for episode 373 that aired on November 27, 2020: 7.9%ㅣ8.2% (cr. I Live Alone Wiki)

1. [+81 / -0] He was really cute when he took out his wisdom tooth in the past~ It's really lovable right now too ♡♡♡♡

2. [+72 / -0] I watched with my mouth open when the footage of him performing on the music show suddenly came on ㅎㅎ But why'd you do that~ The ice cream lid is in the wrong;;  From now on, eat ice cream as a cone~ 

3. [+62 / -0] When he said, "Stay strong~", when getting out of the taxi, it was nice to see 🙂

4. [+51 / -0] Henry went through a lot, seriously the dentist office is so scary...

5. [+50 / -0] Oh gosh, I'm sad... You should've been careful~ I've been healed lately while listening to Henry's 'RADIO'~   

1. [+95 / -0] He said he's going to cry ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He's like a baby, seriously ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+72 / -0] Henry who said it's scarier when you can't see it, that's relatable ㅋㅋㅠㅠㅠ But how can they play his new song as the BGM when he's getting his tooth treated ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+67 / -0] I really like this album

4. [+62 / -0] From the songs played during dental treatments, I think I'm going to remember it as the most luxurious ㅋ I hope he elaborates the story behind the Music Core filming more next time ^^ Please show us~ 

5. [+57 / -0] I liked being able to see Henry today but don't be sick 💕

1. [+138 / -4] I feel like Henry cherishes his little sister a lot

2. [+104 / -3] Whitney is going to scolded by her oppa the next time she comes to Korea ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Since the oldest oppa is also in Korea, I'll be hella waiting for the episode where the three siblings get together and hang out 👨‍👨‍👧 

3. [+92 / -3] I feel like it's quite a different position from siblings in Korea ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Last time, with him going shopping with his little sister too - you can really tell that he cherishes his little sister

4. [+84 / -2] Even Henry's social skills is world class~ ^^ In the midst of all this, he remembered that the boss's son married and his attentiveness with asking about that. Seeing how the hyung-nim is so comfortable towards him, I think I can tell how sweet Henry was~ ^^

5. [+68 / -3] I wish I had an oppa like Henry ^^  

1. [+66 / -0] I can feel from here that she's really happy ♥ Today is the day for boongeobbang!

2. [+36 / -0] I can sense the legit relaxedness/at ease.

3. [+34 / -0] She's really cool.

4. [+28 / -0] It's not relaxedness that formed because she has wealth but I feel like she's a person whose personality is just at ease like that. On top of that, her effort and abilities she was born with came together well so I think that's why we have Park Se Ri right now

5. [+19 / -0] Really~~~ Everything is cool 

Original Source (MBC via Naver TV): The thing Park Se Ri wanted to say for the youth...!

1. [+131 / -0] A cold, heartless reality that doesn't allow failures is no different from zombies who can't die and live. Park Se Ri's words, "Be less stingy towards yourself" is really relatable.

2. [+96 / -0] I went through a big surgery and currently battling against it (the sickness). Unni's words were really relatable. While repeating the saying, "Be less stingy towards yourself", so much tears came down 

3. [+89 / -0] The fact that rich unni, who's sitting at the top in the golf industry, said that they're only showing successful cases ㅜㅠ It touched my heart even more

4. [+57 / -1] Cool unni

5. [+39 / -1] Se Ri unni, you're so cool!! Please continue to come out~~  

1. [+589 / -8] Coach Park Se Ri-nim's life is so cool and I'm envious but I'm surprised that she's still living life to the fullest as always,,,, Just like Jang Do Yeon-nim said, she accomplished so much so if she (Jang Do Yeon) was her (Park Se Ri), she would just live life recklessly but it's really cool that she's still living life to the fullest 

2. [+412 / -4] Her saying that you should go to Chinese restaurants with others is forreal relatable ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+324 / -10] I feel like Park Se Ri and Jang Do Yeon get along quite well ㅋㅋ

4. [+253 / -4] Order the things you're going to eat twice and eat one today and eat the other tomorrow ㅋㅋㅋ

It has been a hot minute since I've last posted about 'I Live Alone' or even watched it... 😓
No, the blog is not dead - it's just on an unexpected hiatus LOL
Most of my time has been consumed by my irl job/work-related projects that honestly, I haven't had time to watch shows or dramas lately 
and tbh, I think I'm going through that slump that a lot of Korean drama/variety show viewers go through 😕
When I'm not working, I just turn on a podcast and try to relax or watch some anime 🙈
I know some of y'all want roundups for dramas and other shows and I want to apologize for the delay...
I'm trying to catch up on dramas so that I can fully understand the references and the delay is mostly because this blog is run by one person (hi, it me lol)
I'm still working hard on trying to figure this whole blogging/content creating thing out and strive to become a better ddoboja for y'all 🙇🏻‍♀️
thank you for your patience and understanding 💜

Actor Lee Kyu Hyung to reportedly make an appearance on 'I Live Alone', his reps announce that his appearance is still up in the air

UPDATE: His reps told OSEN that his filming date and episode airing date is still up in the air. I hope he makes an appearance!

1. [+3044 / -111] Please at least let 'I Live Alone' remain as a trot-clean (t/n: free of trot, no trot) zone 🙏🏻

2. [+1594 / -64] Oh ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I'm looking forward to it, he somewhat resembles Lee Si Eon

3. [+1493 / -25] Hul ㅠㅠㅠㅠ Haerongie

4. [+95 / -9] Ah seriously but I look most foward to 'I Live Alone' ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+78 / -4] Haerongie was the strong exit in the final episode of 'Prison Playbook' who gave us shock. After the drama, I've been enjoying your projects. I'm supporting you.

[I Live Alone Episode 351 Roundup + Naver TV Comments] Yoo Ah In tries to comfort his cats while giving them a bath + reflects on his career and life

Episode 351

Nationwide ratings for episode 351 that aired on June 26, 2020: 12.0% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+1200 / -26] You can kinda tell that he's putting in the effort to not stress the cat out ㅠㅠ

2. [+947 / -36] Yoo Ah In was a cool person... I thought he was a person who's completely pretentious but he was just someone who had a lot of thoughts in his mind, please come out often on 'I Live Alone' 💓

3. [+872 / -31] He's hella warmhearted, I fell for him once more

4. [+841 / -24] This is something I felt after reading the comments but I think it's tough for the production team and the panelists... If they just show a calm daily life then people say it's boring, if it's a bit too much then people say it's scripted and that the show lost it's original purpose... Gosh ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ...

5. [+652 / -23] That good heart is so pretty

1. [+568 / -7] I seriously thought he would come out on 'I Live Alone' for more of a made-for-TV material but I almost teared up because he was too alone

2. [+525 / -5] The original purpose of 'I Live Alone' was really kept alive because it (his episode) wasn't material that was made-for-TV (t/n: like they didn't do things just for the sake of TV, scripted, etc). It was natural because you can see the way he normally is and it was good, as expected of Yoo Ah In! I'm supporting your good growth 

3. [+389 / -2] Personally, I liked Won Deuk (Punch) and Lee Bang Won (Six Flying Dragons) but I overwhelmingly liked Sado (The Throne). His acting was quite no joke. 
↪ [+40 / -1] His Sado acting was really insane

4. [+377 / -2] It's really cool seeing him having a sense of responsibility for his acting ☺ I hope we get to see you more often on TV 😍

5. [+287 / -5] Yoo Ah In is cool, I'm becoming more curious about him

Original Source (MBC via Naver TV): Yoo Ah In's new worries that came with his upcoming move

1. [+1320 / -30] Until he said those words, I wondered how hard it was for Yoo Ah In and it was really sad. Through Yoo Ah In, I began to think again about what's the standard of happiness. Yoo Ah In is a really cool person.

2. [+1189 / -19] Even if he didn't go into acting, I feel like he would've done art and I think he would've done it well but I'm a person who really likes Yoo Ah In's acting so I really like that he did acting and he became an actor 
↪ [+37 / -1] He studied art in high school 

3. [+1014 / -16] As a person who genuinely supports actor Yoo Ah In, I'm leaving this comment since he might be able to see it. I hope you're not to harsh on yourself, you're cool enough just the way you are and I think you're a good enough person to receive love from others. I hope through the many things you're currently worrying about, it can become an opportunity for you, Ah In-nim, to love yourself more. I'm sincerely supporting you

4. [+990 / -14] Finding enlightenment (realizing things) in your thirties, isn't an easy thing. You can let things go because you enjoyed a lot of things? Not at all... Because as a human, you want to chase for higher things and more things.... It's possible that he experienced more things than his peers and he wasn't caught up in vain things and through that experience, he might be looking for the proper things within himself.. Whatever that is, I'm supporting you.

5. [+754 / -10] Keu he's cool. His episode was the episode I liked the most amongst the 'I Live Alone' episodes I watched recently. Ah In, you came out well~

Original Source (Star Daily News via Nate): 'I Live Alone' Yoo Ah In, "Actors make a lot of money...You need to be responsible" 

1. [+5592 / -313] For a moment, when I heard this, I thought that he was quite unique. He lives that grand at a young age but said that you need to know how to be responsible. His mind (t/n: way of thinking, mindset) is definitely different

2. [+4998 / -281] People who think like that are rare. There's many people who think that they're all great but it seems like Yoo Ah In has a lot of deep thoughts

3. [+4759 / -277] The delicate type who self-reflects and soul searches a lot... 

4. [+387 / -17] A lot of celebrities need to listen to this a bit closely. It's a rule that if you gain something, there's also something to lose. If you're going to whine, find something else to do. Despite all that, aren't they doing it because there's more things to enjoy.

Original Source (Star Today via Nate): 'I Live Alone' Yoo Ah In, ripped umbrella + stretched out sweatpants...Familiar 'neighborhood hyung' force, who's taking a night stroll

1. [+2012 / -118] He lives a glamorous life and in a nice house but it feels like Yoo Ah In wanted to show that he's also a person. I feel like he showed his sincere self as much as he can

2. [+1888 / -92] I feel like he thought a lot about himself and his acting. It was a really cool mindset when he said that being a celebrity is a job where you make a lot of money but you need to have a sense of responsibility for that job. I became a fan of Yoo Ah In after 'I Live Alone'

3. [+1828 / -87] He seems like a person who's really honest, feels lonely often, and delicate... It felt like he had a charm that stimulates the protective instinct so I saw him in a different light

4. [+172 / -9] Even if you say that it's scripted and he's pulling off a show, he fits the purpose of the show more than actresses who bring out all their friends and act ridiculous and actor Song who poses in a home that's not even his

5. [+152 / -7] It was way more fun that Yoo Ah In came out by himself and didn't bring his friends out. It was really 'I Live Alone', this scene was really relatable

Nationwide ratings for episode 350 that aired on June 19, 2020: 12.7% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+290 / -14] Kim Hee Chul is the hyung? Hul
↪ [+27 / -9] He's a hyung by one year ㅎㅎ
↪ [+64 / -9] That's not Kian's fault... It's all Kim Hee Chul's fault... How is that someone who's 38 years old ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+190 / -6] He must really do a good job of taking care of the people around him - I don't know how many times I've heard of him taking good care of the people around him on variety shows

3. [+180 / -12] Kim Hee Chul's face is doing a good job - hella haaandsome 

4. [+155 / -7] Kim Hee Chul is so pretty, he looks good with his hair tied up

5. [+138 / -9] Kim Hee is hella handsome, the only one in the whole universe... 

1. [+427 / -6] Seriously, just like Kian said, the painting was the most cool when it was completed at the 60% mark,, when they were showing a bit of it in the middle, I was thinking, 'Seriously, wow - an artist is an artist' ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ that's a bit scary,,0

2. [+320 / -7] It really seems like Kim Hee Chul doesn't discriminate against people (t/n: being picky about who he wants to hang out with) and takes care of everyone...0

3. [+274 / -38] I think the painting is alright - to be honest, anyone from anywhere can draw a painting expressing Kim Hee Chul's face but even if it looks weird, I think that painting is unique

4. [+239 / -4] Kim Hee Chul speaks well with wit

5. [+187 / -9] Kim Hee Chul is hella handsome

Original Source (MBC via Naver TV): Jang Do Yeon who holds onto Yoo Ah In's cheek during their first meeting...? It's a huge compliment~

1. [+1382 / -22] No but he looks cool even when he's wearing hospital clothes? It's ridiculous (t/n: "어이가 없네" can be interpreted as "It's/How ridiculous"/"It's dumbfounding" and it's one of Yoo Ah In's legendary lines and it's from the movie 'Veteran')

2. [+1065 / -13] Yoo Ah In's cheek during their first meetingㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+791 / -16] The moment he said, "Teacher, I love you", I changed my name to Kim Teacher 

4. [+645 / -13] He really looks young.. Looking at it, he works hard at maintaining it 

5. [+554 / -13] What do you have to do to bring out a fashion sense like that...

Original Source (MBC via Naver TV): ※Not a sundial※ Yoo Ah In's taste is all over! Ah In House grand reveal~

1. [+2188 / -43] The fact that we get to see Yoo Ah In's home on 'I Live Alone'... The fact that a day like this came...

2. [+1928 / -135] He definitely has a pretentious aspect towards him but you don't dislike it at all and instead it's cool ㅜㅡㅜ

3. [+1675 / -42] The interior sense is, wow daebak.. the house is so pretty.. there really is a lot of stairs ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 

4. [+1579 / -39] When actress Kim So Yeon usually speaks her voice tone also trembles like Yoo Ah In... I can sense the difficulty of living in an anxious life... When I see that, I think he did well on deciding to relaxation exercise.

5. [+1452 / -45] I feel like he's honest without being fake, you can just tell by watching. Any human is weak, do you think that they're all strong because they're celebrities?

Original Source (MBC via Naver TV): Yoo Ah In's healing space! There's no awards displayed or his photos?!

t/n: During the house tour, Park Narae notice that he doesn't have a display of his awards and Yoo Ah In explained that he's uncomfortable with looking at his awards and then remembering those memories. Narae and Jang Do Yeon thought he was embarrassed about it but Yoo Ah In clarified that it's not about being embarrassed but that it more about it being awkward. In the past, during his rookie period, he used to have his photos around his home because it was a memento and it put him in a good mood but at some point, he wanted to be comfortable at least at his home. 

1. [+1254 / -12] I feel like he wasn't an actor, he would become an artist? Philosopher? Writer? 

2. [+1172 / -8] It seems like he was really anxious ㄷㄷ His voice was shaking when he was explaining ㅜㅜ
↪ [+124 / -3] When he's usually acting, his voice isn't shaking on purpose - I heard it naturally shakes because he's afraid of the camera

3. [+1082 / -13] Since he's going to look at comments, I'm going to leave one here. I've a fan of 10 years. Every time I see you, you're a reserved person who has an artistic talent and there's time where your honesty can come off as being pretentious so it became really controversial~ It feels like you receive a lot of hate comments like idols so I get sad and it looks like you're free-spirited but you're sensitive and I hope you don't get sensitive. I know that if I leave a comment like this, there will be bad responses to this comment~ But I hope you know that there is a woman who will answer "Yoo Ah In" if someone asked me who my ideal type is and one of the reasons for that is because your clear about your own color~ So I hope, unlike right now, you live happily and comfortably~ 
↪ [+119 / -1] I agree. I like that his beliefs are clear. After watching his interview in the past, I thought that he was an actor with really deep thoughts 

4. [+674 / -3] The fact that we get to watch Yoo Ah In's life like this... I really like it so much ㅠㅠㅠㅜ

5. [+594 / -4] The interior is neat and I'm hella struck by how things like the towels are organized..

6. [+582 / -6] I thought Yoo Ah In would be really picky but this was unexpected. It seems like he's just a bit unique(?) but it was funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋ He tried to make jokes here and there and it looked really cute

Original Source (MBC via Naver TV): My own healing space... ☆ Yoo Ah In's sweet dream time~!

1. [+1446 / -11] It feels like he has a lot on his mind.... I hope he thinks of more positive thoughts than depressing ones ㅜㅜ
↪ [+142 / -0] I think it's because he totally has a personality like an artist ㅋㅋ they're contemplative 

2. [+1092 / -20] The only thought I had today was that he's really, quite, such, more of a good person than I thought. It wasn't super excessive and it was exactly, appropriately enjoyable and I had a fun time watching it ^^
↪ [+83 / -2] To be honest, it feels like in the past, we had an excessive prejudice against this person without knowing him well... He looks so pure

3. [+1078 / -16] He's a bit unique but don't you think that's why he succeeded? Artists are different...

4. [+929 / -10] When I look at Yoo Ah In, I had a thought that there was a reason why he was good at playing the role of Crown Prince Sado in 'The Throne'. The public lashed out at Yoo Ah In like how King Yeong Jo lashed out at Crown Prince Sado, it feels like the burden Yoo Ah In felt was really big but it was nice to see him getting rid of his burden and recovering 

Original Source (MBC via Naver TV): "It feels like you're going to shave off your lips too" Yoo Ah In's tough(?) morning skin care!

1. [+733 / -78] Yoo Ah In became likable... It feels like he has a lot of thoughts and he's certain about his own style

2. [+1668 / -59] Yoo Ah In's charm is really awesome. He looks anxious and I keep worrying about the weary feeling and I think he makes you look for him. He also gives off the vibes of a boy who got lost.

3. [+1435 / -42] It's because, with this oppa, people kept looking at him within their bias... He's just really contemplative and not arrogant. When he does award speeches, he's someone whose nervousness/anxiousness is so severe that he needs to take medicine... 

4. [+1105 / -28] Seriously, who would've thought we'd get to see Yoo Ah In washing up 

5. [+936 / -38] "It feels like you're going to shave off your lips too" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Do Yeon unni is so funny ㅋㅋㅋ  

Original Source (MBC via Naver TV): Yoo Ah In who fell into a sweet dream while exercising?! Can you... hear me....?

t/n: He was doing mindfulness and meditation exercises. Friends, if you have a lot on your mind, I want to recommend mindfulness exercise/activities to you. One exercise I learned during my second year of college was color counting and it's when you look at a floor or any other object that has a lot of colors in its pattern and you just count all the different colors in it. That really helps take your mind off of what was stressing you out and helps you calm your heartbeat down. If you ever need anyone to talk to or just need to vent, you can always reach out to me via Twitter. 

1. [+1808 / -19] I think it was a really good decision to make an appearance on 'I Live Alone'. I think that maybe after many people watch Yoo Ah In in this episode and they're going realize things again

2. [+1528 / -26] Although this oppa lives fancy in a palace-like grand home, you can sense the something like loneliness within him and even though there's no relatability formed, strangely I can't ignore it so I kept paying attention while watching today's episode. He has quite a strange charm to him.

3. [+1519 / -22] Is this too sad? ㅠㅠ I wondered how psychologically anxious and tired he is that he has to do exercise like that so on one hand, my heart hurts ㅠ Even in the scenes where he's doing an interview by himself, it felt like he was nervous and shaking ㅠㅠㅠ I think it's because he's so serious, has a lot on his mind, and detailed ㅠㅠ However, I'm glad that he's finding stability through exercise like that! But don't look at comments or hate comments on articles ㅠ

4. [+892 / -10] Yoo Ah In's complexion looks really good after he started doing that exercise  ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Yeah, that's right - it's good to do something that's good for you. 

5. [+794 / -7] Unexpectedly, Yoo Ah In has a lot on his mind and gets nervous a lot, I'm worried ㅠㅠ Ah In-nim, it's good to live positively and happily 😭😭

I really enjoyed this episode! 🥺
Hee Chul really seems to like Kian as an artist and his art 
and when he said that Kian is his Picasso 🥺
also did anyone else notice how he called Kian by his real name (Hee Min) at the beginning when Kian picked him up? 💜
Not gonna lie, Kian's painting kinda gave me Babadook vibes LOL but it also reminded me of that botched restoration of the Jesus painting LOLOLOLOLOL 🤣

I agree with the comments!
I think it was a really good decision for Yoo Ah In to appear on the show
Before he came out, majority of comments on articles would bag on him saying that he's pretentious but I think through this episode, he was able to express himself more and explain that he struggles with public speaking - which explains the award speech "controversy" from a few years ago

His house is so beautiful and loved the area with the glass walls and wine fridge 🤩🍷
so bougie~
but i would probs be out of breath like him after going up and down all those stairs 

I wanted to include the Nate comments because they were overwhelmingly positive but this post was getting way too long 😓
Let me know if you guys still want a separate post with the Nate comments 🤟🏻
