I was watching all my shows like usual and really struggling to find something that stood out for my weekly countdown. I was just about to start picking some sub par moments and then I watched episode 11 of Lets Eat.....AND IT TOTALLY ROCKED!!! Half way through I was having such a hard time picking just one scene to use that I instead decided to just do my top 5 favorite moments all from this episode. YES! It really was that good. Now I am sure some of you are saying to yourselves....Kmuse, I am not watching Lets Eat. What about us? Don't worry, I do have a few scenes that I had squirreled away from other shows. They will be at the end of the post under the honorable mention header. If nothing else I hope this helps those of you that are on the fence about watching this drama take the proverbial plunge. It is such a wonderful guilty pleasure and is perfect for rounding out my week.
I tried to find as many clips as I could. However some scenes are not on youtube. So if you are interested in checking out the scenes described below I have added a time stamp for each segment. This is one of those dramas that has a lot of individual scenes so if you do check it out for the most part they don't really spoil plot points for the show as a whole.
You can find the episode at the below link.
#5 Food, Food, and More Food

#4 A Liar is My Ideal TypeOh Do-Yeon and Yoon Jin-Yi are two of the characters that have shown an interest in our main guy Koo Dae-Young. Hilarity ensues when they finally meet face to face and instantly decide that they are rivals. Both start snapping at each other in the food line and it comes out that our leading man told both of them elaborate stories about a lost love (in order to keep them in the friend zone and not chasing after him). The best part is that when Lee Soo-Kyung comes between them and says that it looks like he had been lying to both of them. They just huff and say they don't care. And then Oh Do-Yeon says my favorite line of the episode (and possibly the whole show). When she finds out she says "that's perfect since a liar is my ideal type". HAHAHAHA
Time stamp :14.45
#3 Dog PhobiaLawyer Kim Hak Moon has had a crush on Soo Kyung since his college days when he was a totally geek and beneath her notice. Hiring her in some weird revenge fantasy he constantly switched between love and hate all the while keeping her oblivious to his feelings. He has finally decided that he loves her so in an effort to find common ground he asks about her dog. Now there are two things that Soo Kyung loves, food being the first and her cute dog being the second. Gushing about her dog she assumes that Hak Moon also wants a dog and drags him to the pet store. Unfortunately Hak Moon has a crippling fear of dogs and even touching a fluffy small dog has his hands shaking in terror. Through a series of misunderstandings and assumptions Soo Kyung decides that her boss really wants to adopt a large shelter dog (which gets him off the hook for now but what about in the future?). Deciding he needs to overcome his fear in order to get the girl, Hak Moon hilariously has a shouting match with his phone about finding a cure for fear of dogs. In the end he finds a dog that he can practice on....... a small barking kid toy hehehe. I cant wait til next week because I am sure this misunderstanding is going to be even funnier in the future.
Time stamp: 47:15
#2 A Slippery SaveThis scene is awesome. I love how our leading lady is not going to fall in love come hell or high water......or freezing temps and ice strewn sidewalks. Gradually becoming aware that she has started to "like like" our hottie through this episode, Soo Kyung is fighting it tooth and nail. And when she slips on some ice and Dae Young saves her from falling, she gets extremely huffy tries to stalk off and promptly almost falls again. I love that he starts trying to convince her to get insurance for just these type of situations hehehe. This time Dae Young pulls her even closer and offers her his back (haha seriously why would you think a piggy back ride would be safer on ice). What could have turned into a romantic piggy back ride is rejected by our girl and tells him that he uses his back so much it might as well be a shuttle bus. She then takes off her shoes and walks across the icy sidewalks barefoot. HAHAHA I love that this is one girl who is not going to fall for the romantic ideals. She is cranky and anti love and she is not going to change, even if she ends up with frostbitten toes.
Time stamp: 50:51

#1 That Boy Is Mine Karaoke StyleWhat happens when you add two battling oppa chasers, a flirty insurance salesman, one love sick lawyer, a goofy aid, and a prim and proper food addict in a karaoke room? Pure comedic gold of course. Not to mention a really great scene of Yoon Doo Joon's Karaoke version of "Troublemaker" (can someone tell me when he went from kinda goofy cute to steaming hot because I am still wondering how that happened within just a few episodes). The best is when both girls try to stake their claim on our hottie (even though he has turned down both - see #4 moment). They instigate a drinking war to see who should have him in the event that he ever decides to date again. While this is going on the Lawyer keeps sending the creepiest love looks at our leading lady who is oblivious to all and just wishing she could go home. Truly a great scene and my #1 Karaoke moment to date.

This time it is truly the end, and this experience also makes me realize that I am glad I only do the top 5 best moments of kdrama each week and not the top ten. It takes some serious time to throw this all together when I start adding things. However, I hope you all enjoyed the little extra effort this week and can watch/start these great dramas that will have you laughing, crying, and probably sleep deprived in no time. Be sure to tune in next week to see if the new drama Full Sun is any good and if it can find a spot on our top 5. Til then, keep on watching.
