[webdrama] EXO NEXT DOOR Episode 5

vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h02m50s247Back with another episode 🙂 It was better than the previous one, not just centered around one character. Didn’t really like the flashbacks and imagination scenes – it was okay, but too much of it in each episode makes it feels like the show is wasting unnecessary screen time, when it could be used to strengthen the story instead.

Okay, without further ado~


vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h55m09s251The drama starts off with an interview with an older Yeon Hee – who is homeless. The interviewer asks how long has she been staying here and she answers that it has been quite a while. She warns him of three things he should be careful of – binoculars, cockroaches and universal stars. She chases him away when he probes her to give an example.

vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h55m53s180vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h55m50s150Turns out Yeon Hee was having a cold and running a fever. Mom tells her to eat up, but seeing she doesn’t have any appetite, she tells her to rest and she will cook porridge.

D.O says it’s nothing. vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h56m33s63vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h57m05s128vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h56m40s138Sehun shakes his head and asks them if they want him and Baekhyun to believe that. Sehun asks why they keep staring at the house.

vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h56m55s34Chanyeol denies and Sehun says that Chanyeol probably felt guilty from what he said the day before. vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h57m03s113Baekhyun asks if they want him to call her, and all of them look at him. vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h57m02s99He finishes off his sentence with “is what I would say, but I don’t have her number.”

vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h56m52s254vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h57m11s194Sehun says he does and everyone turn to look at him. He explains that he doesn’t exactly have her number, but he is friends with her brother and he could call him and ask.

vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h57m24s61vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h57m39s215Yeon Hee’s brother dramatically tell Sehun that she got a cold. Sehun asks him if he always speaks in that manner and why he doesn’t face Sehun while speaking. vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h57m25s69vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h57m27s98vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h57m59s157vlcsnap-2015-04-22-00h58m03s195Her brother cuts him off and tells him to mind his manners. He also mentions that they should dispose of any thoughts towards Yeon Hee as Yeon Hee has called them ugly ass.

Yeon Hee wonders what is the correct answer.

vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h00m07s156vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h00m35s185D.O sits alone in the van, thinking about what happen with Yeon Hee. vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h00m38s208vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h00m40s233He had offered to call an ambulance, but Yeon Hee says that she is not sick – she is just embarrassed. vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h00m53s107vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h00m45s23She started crying and D.O apologizes again.

vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h01m13s55D.O smiles thinking about it and stops by to get Yeon Hee a drink for her cold and leaves a note. vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h01m28s201vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h01m32s241vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h01m41s73Yeon Hee smiles to herself.

vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h01m57s237Yeon Hee’s fever is gone, and she decides to resume work as she doesn’t want to quit with them thinking that she’s weird.

vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h02m11s113She cleans Chanyeol’s room and he walks in, closing the door. vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h02m28s33He asks why didn’t she tell him that she was there to clean and wasn’t a stalker. vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h02m36s110vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h02m42s176He continues to ask on why is she back and if she needed money.

He tells her to keep coming to work and he wouldn’t bother her.

vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h03m27s109vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h03m23s67He leaves the room and stands outside the door. Yeon Hee talks to herself inside the room – saying that she came back because she didn’t want to run away and she wasn’t a stalker. She says that even though they don’t have to know or care, but she has a name too and that her name is – before she finishes it off – vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h03m50s80vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h03m53s114Chanyeol who was hearing from outside says he knows her name.

vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h04m00s180vlcsnap-2015-04-22-01h03m56s146He opens the door and says that he knows her name. Ji Yeon Hee.



This episode was much better, because we had the other members too! However, the drama needs to seriously stop with the flashbacks and all the hand/wrist grabbing. Too much of anything is a bad thing.

I actually like Sehun and Yeon Hee’s brother scenes and I want moreeee.

Nothing really much to talk about – just one thing which bothers me though. Does Chanyeol have split personality or what – one moment he’s being an ass and the other moment he’s not.

The sudden switch at the last minute when he was asking her why is she back and if she needed money to apologizing for his actions the day before was really random. It’s not a bad thing – but when being done in such a sudden way, it feels weird.

Oh and one more thing – was it really necessary for Chanyeol to stand outside the door and eavesdrop on Yeon Hee talking to herself? He was already speaking to her inside the room – and I thought it would have been perfectly fine if she had answered it to his face.

Okay that’s about it. I need more Baekhyun!!!!
