[webdrama] EXO NEXT DOOR Episode 2


Okay, I’m back with Episode 2. Not sure if I would continue recapping or doing discussions on this – it depends really.

In this episode, the story is set in place and they drop us some juicy information. Okay – I would be writing up the thoughts & discussion later on, the recap comes first.


vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h40m28s162vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h40m35s234We start off with a little rewind – back to when the boys moved in. They go ‘wooo’ and ‘ahhh’ when they entered, satisfied with the house.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h40m43s61The nicest room goes to Chanyeol andvlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h40m48s110the second nicest goes to D.O.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h41m17s137vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h41m10s73vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h41m12s86vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h41m13s100The members are satisfied with the place and asks Chanyeol if it’s really his grandfather’s place as it looks brand new. He mentions that his parents fixed the place up and he used to play here when he was younger. Sehun complains about not having a bed, and the others tell him to just bear with it for a day.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h41m54s0vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h41m47s184While the members are sound asleep, Chanyeol goes over to a wooden chair and ‘greets’ his grandfather.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h42m47s17vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h42m56s104vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h42m59s140vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h43m05s192Which brings us back to the ending of episode 1.

So Chanyeol walks in first, followed by the rest and asked who is she before getting spit at. vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h43m30s192vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h43m34s229The others laughed as they try to calm Chanyeol down, while Yeon Hee stood there, shocked that her neighbors are really exo. vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h43m44s78She tells them that her mom ask to bring over some rice cakes to the neighbors and hesitates if she should help but ended up leaving quickly. vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h44m10s74Baekhyun comments that she’s really something.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h44m30s18Yeon Hee runs home, embarrassed. She calls her friend and tells her that exo lives next door.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h45m04s107vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h45m44s250So she ended up stalking the boys and when her friend came,vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h45m46s10vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h45m48s35vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h45m52s76They continue stalking while commenting how perfect the members are. Yeon Hee remembers that she had embarrassed herself earlier but that’s that – and since she’s already doing this, she’s going to do it 24 hours.vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h46m08s231vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h46m15s45Look at those snacks!

Yeon Hee’s mother came in the room and asked the friend if she’s not going home and if her parents are not worried. Her friend leaves for the night. Yeon Hee asks her mom why she keep giving things to the neighbor and if she knows what they do as a profession as she wouldn’t let anyone in Chan’s grandfather’s house. Her mom says that no one write their jobs on lease agreement and she doesn’t know.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h46m42s59vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h47m03s11The members video call with Kai and asks if he has met his parents and if there are pretty girls there.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h47m17s155vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h47m23s218After chatting, Sehun notices that Yeon Hee is spying at them.vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h47m28s7vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h47m33s62Baekhyun says that he didn’t thought she would be this way and asks Sehun if they should play a trick on her.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h47m36s94vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h47m38s109Sehun agrees and they ask D.O, who ignores them.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h47m41s141vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h47m46s193They decide to go ahead with the trick and….vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h47m52s248vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h47m56s31Yeon Hee is shocked as she didn’t expected that to happen.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h48m08s159D.O kicks them and tell them to stop, while they ask D.O to quickly close the curtains.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h48m10s174vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h48m11s184Chanyeol, on the other hand, was looking from the second story.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h48m20s21vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h48m26s76D.O closes the curtain and waves at Yeon Hee. She quickly hides and asked herself if she just got caught.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h48m45s17vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h48m50s66vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h48m54s101Kyungsoo asks Chanyeol why he asked them to come to this house and isn’t there a special reason why.

vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h49m00s166vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h49m02s187Chanyeol says that he lost something here.vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h49m05s209vlcsnap-2015-04-10-23h49m06s223A really important thing.



Okay, first of all – I thought the webdrama would be cringe-worthy, but honestly, it was much better than what I had expected. I’m actually impressed that the first two episodes had a pretty good story line so far. It was smooth and it’s pretty interesting.

We know a little bit more about Chanyeol. He used to come over to play when he was younger – and most likely he and Yeon Hee knew each other when they were kids. Yeon Hee mentioned to her mom as Chan’s grandfather’s house – which means they probably knew each other.

One weird thing though – her mom seems weird when Yeon Hee asked that question. I can’t tell if she really don’t know who moved in, or is she trying to hide something? But why?

Chanyeol mentioned that he lost something important – what? Could it be Yeon Hee? Or could it be something belonging to Chanyeol which Yeon Hee lost when they were playmates?

We didn’t get much on the other members yet – but we know Baekhyun and Sehun are mischievous and D.O is kind enough to wave at Yeon Hee – so that she knows they know she is there.

I’m a little confused though, because initially I thought Baekhyun and Chanyeol are best friends – but seriously in this two episodes, I don’t see best friends anywhere. Hah. Even the second nicest room, Chanyeol say it’s D.O’s. But oh well – it doesn’t really matter to me, and there are many more episodes to go.

As for acting wise, I feel awkward watching Chanyeol act so serious (mostly because he is cheerful and playful in reality), and Kyungsoo so friendly (because he’s so quiet in reality) – but that’s because I’m a fan, so I feel awkward. Sehun and Baekhyun looks like they are acting their normal self. Hah.


I won’t be able to judge their acting since I might be bias – but honestly though, I think it’s pretty alright? Considering that it’s a web-drama, and they don’t have much experience in acting, so I think it’s watchable so far. Of course, there are many more episodes to go and judgement for acting can come in later after more episodes and when the characters are more developed.

Anyway – for non-fans, maybe you might want to try it out? Or perhaps you can wait a while for more episodes and see the reviews to decide if you should watch it. I think it’s not too bad, even for non-fans to watch. It seems like it would have a pretty good story, but then again, it seems like – so it’s not definite.

Okay – that’s all 🙂

  1. Thank you so much for the recap! I’m not a huge K-pop follower only because I don’t have time for it, but I did notice how Chanyeol was so much more serious while D.O. was more cheerful. Interesting switch haha
