Anecdotes about being drunk are the subject in some conversations. There are slight gratuitous body shots of a character.
Is It Any Good?
This show is driven by the food (full pun intended) -- cusine and conversation bring depth to this duo's adventures across Korea. They talk about marriage, relationships, celebrity culture, and so much more. Though sometimes bromidic, conversations in The Hungry and The Hairy are still engaging to watch.
Jung Ji-hoon's calculated planning and disciplined personality pairs well with Ro Hong-chul's boisterous and goofy one. The depiction of their friendship is very wholesome, authentic, and charming. Exaggerated animations of their personalities comedically heighten the differences between them.
