1. [+732 / -11] I wish Kwang Kyu hyung came out more

2. [+600 / -8] When Kwang Kyu-nim comes out, I feel so warmed up and I like it. He's not fake, it's natural, and he matches the purpose of 'I Live Alone' ㅋ I like that you can watch comfortably. I hope he comes out from time to time ♡

3. [+515 / -5] Kyu who came from the stars who's seasoning the grapefruit stew while eating a salmon avocado sandwich ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ (t/n: The members joked around and compared Kim Kwang Kyu to Do Min Joon from 'You Who Came from the Stars' because he ordered a grapefruit ade but didn't mix the grapefruit puree so he only drank the carbonated water. He also ordered a bagel sandwich but didn't remember what he ordered so he took a look at the menu again and thought he ordered the salmon avocado sandwich)

4. [+349 / -9] This is 'I Live Alone'! Lately, they've lost touch with their original intention but it feels like the old days because Kwang Kyu hyung came out. It kinda feels like the the show's past that had affection and warmth is being reenacted ^~^

5. [+345 / -9] Please make him a fixed cast member, I watched because of actor Kwang Kyu-nim!!!

6. [+314 / -3] Kwang Kyu-on, were you seasoning the grapefruit stew? 🍲🥄ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I feel bad, the [grapefruit] puree sunk all the way to the bottom ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ (t/n: Kim Kwang Kyu new nickname is 'Kwang Kyu-on'. It's a combo of Kwang Kyu + Léon because when he was carrying his new art supplies and the plant, the members said he looked like Léon from the movie 'Léon: The Professional')

1. [+249 / -3] Ah ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ What's up with this ahjusshi ㅜㅜㅋㅋㅋ Ah, I seriously want to stir the grapefruit ade for him.. No but Kwang Kyu ahjusshi, aren't you too cute ㅜㅜ ............. I exploded at the barley part ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Ah hella funny (t/n: Kim Kwang Kyu ordered greek yogurt that came with fruits and granola. He called the granola "barley")

2. [+200 / -4] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ He said the yogurt was alright because it was sweet ㅋㅋㅋ He said the barley (granola) was very firm ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ Ah seriously, it was so funny and sad when he was taking sips of the grapefruit water ㅠㅠㅠ That's also sweet ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+140 / -1] When Kwang Kyu-nim comes out, time flies because I laugh ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ큐ㅠㅠㅠ I hope he comes out often...

4. [+117 / -1] Kwang Kyu-on-nim isn't pretentious and his pureness is comforting. He's so funny whenever I see him. ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+94 / -4] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+86 / -1] It's sad while 🐕 (hella) funny 𐨛 𐨛 𐌅 ヲ𐨛 𐌅 ࠅ ࠅ 𐨛 𐌅 ヲ𐨛 𐌅 ࠅ ࠅ 𐨛 𐌅 ヲ𐨛 𐌅 ࠅ ࠅ 𐨛 𐌅 ヲ 𐨛 𐨛 𐌅 ヲ𐨛 𐌅 ࠅ ࠅ 𐨛 𐌅 ヲ𐨛 𐌅 ࠅ ࠅ 𐨛 𐌅 ヲ𐨛 𐌅 ࠅ ࠅ 𐨛 𐌅 ヲ 𐨛 𐨛 𐌅 ヲ𐨛 𐌅 ࠅ ࠅ 𐨛 𐌅 ヲ𐨛 𐌅 ࠅ ࠅ 𐨛 𐌅 ヲ𐨛 𐌅 ࠅ ࠅ 𐨛 𐌅 ヲ

1. [+103 / -2] It's been a while but Kwang Kyu-nim and Hwasa's episode today was soft and really fun. I was rolling on the floor laughing whenever a drop of ink fell ㅋ I'm past the age of laughing at just fallen leaves ㅋ I blew up whenever he changed papers because a dot of the ink was on it ㅋ

2. [+62 / -2] @ 1:55 - During this part, I seriously laughed without being able to breathe ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+57 / -2] When he brushed the first stroke, I was really amazed~ I was like "wow, wow~" when he did two to three strokes~ I'm not sure if it's because I also do calligraphy but I was tempted by the good brushes ㅋ

4. [+41 / -1] @ 02:26 - Wow, actor Kwang Kyu is really the best!!

5. [+27 / -0] Let's go for becoming a fixed cast member~~    

1. [+727 / -12] Tiring out your body to hide that you're having hard time is relatable.. I'm proud that she didn't break down but it's sad.. 

2. [+612 / -6] Oh my ㅠㅠ so Hwasa's grandmother who came out three years ago passed away... 😭😢😥 

3. [+540 / -9] Her smelling the scent of her grandma from that blanket, I get it ㅠㅠ

4. [+475 / -9] I expected it after watching the preview but as expected, I had an explosion of tears and snot ㅠㅠㅠㅠ I cried because I really miss my grandma and thought of her. All the things Hwasa did were so understandable ㅠㅠㅠ

5. [+433 / -7] I understand the emotions Hwasa is feeling so it touches my heart even more

6. [+364 / -5] A scene that made me choke up a lot while watching ㅜㅜ

7. [+353 / -7] I teared up when the video Hwasa filmed of her grandmother came out ㅠㅠ

8. [+334 / -7] Hwasa felt more like an adult because she wasn't sobbing in today's episode. When will I become a grown up.. 

9. [+314 / -11] Hye Jin, I always wish that you are happy

10. [+291 / -7] When Hwasa visited Namwon in the past, she treated the elders so well that I thought I should call my grandparents more often but.. I'm tearing up ㅠㅠ

11. [+249 / -6] Even Hwasa is holding back [her tears] but I bursted out in tears ㅠㅠ even the background music.. *sigh* ㅠㅠ 

1. [+197 / -2] I really like how you can always watch Hwasa's episode comfortably and it's not pretentious. Today's episode also made me think of my grandma, I liked it

2. [+158 / -0] Watching today's episode really reminded me of the countryside

3. [+150 / -0] I was reminded of my grandma while watching so I cried 

4. [+135 / -2] I really liked Hwasa's episode today.. it was also calm..

5. [+106 / -1] When I listen to the songs I listened to when I was younger, I get moved because I get reminded of the past

6. [+100 / -2] Each and every one of Hwasa's actions in today's episode were relatable. When you listen to the songs you listened to when you were younger, you get reminded of those times..

1. [+305 / -4] Why do I tear up every time it overlaps with the moments she was with her grandmother ㅜㅜ Instead, Hwasa is calm but only I'm crying

2. [+267 / -5] It was sadder because she was calm..

3. [+233 / -6] It's harder to be composed when you're sad. It was sadder because she was composed.. I liked it because thanks to Hwasa, I was reminded of my grandma ㅠㅠ

4. [+221 / -5] What Hwasa said was relatable.. It's really nothing but when you start doing things on your own, you begin to think that you're an adult ㅋㅋㅋㅋ (t/n: examples Hwasa gave was driving to her grandma's home by herself, making food) 

5. [+166 / -7] I really like how she eats well. You don't need to not finish the food 

1. [+254 / -2] Hwasa's heart is so kind for preparing pretty flowers that won't wither away

2. [+218 / -2] Flowers that won't wither away like the memories of a grandmother and granddaughter

3. [+200 / -2] I hope her grandmother visits, sees the flowers that'll forever not wither and like them..

4. [+171 / -1] It was also kinda sad how she came to her grandmother's house without her long nails because her grandmother didn't like it

5. [+162 / -5] Her heart is so kind... 

I held off on watching this episode bc I've already been missing my grandparents so much 
not gonna lie, the past year has been mentally and emotionally hard for me and I'm sure many of y'all are going through the same...
This episode made me miss my grandparents even more :( 
I was supposed to go see them in 2020 🥺
Hope all of y'all are doing well, stay safe out there 💜
