I guess I'm mostly an OT newbie? I started commenting with the Arang/Nice Guy recaps, but I'm not really into any of the shows being capped right now so the OT is a good excuse to come hang out on DB anyway.

Hey pogo! It's always fun, hanging out, unless your tshirt is too short - lol.

I actually rewatched the ending of Arang recently as I haven't gotten caught up in any of the current sageuks. I watched one episode of The Great Seer, and one of Jeon Woo-chi, but neither caught my eye like King of Dramas. Just as well, as the end of the year is hectic!

0

yeah, I know what you mean- none of the current sageuk crop is a patch on the stuff we had earlier in the year.

I tried The Moon That Embraces The Sun and LOVED its child cast, but I felt Han Ga-in fell a little flat as the adult version of her character. Really liked Kim Min-seo, though - that lady has charisma, can someone just make her a proper lead already!

0

I agree! It's time to give her a role she can really shine in!

0

the arang ending is too cute...i have watched it at least 10 times....haha

0

OMG -

It's like Big vs I Love It Tae-ri.

Each had a similar theme, and Big probably had more going for it, at least at the beginning. But ILITR hit the perfect note for the ending, though, and that made all the difference in my mind.

Hi Pogo, I'm a newbie and started commenting with Arang too. The only show being capped right now that I've gotten into is King of Dramas, so I'm watching older stuff. I miss Arang.

@Ivoire. It's sunny here but i'm freezing. Hot soup and tea at will! Is KOD the only show you're watching these days? You're sure invested in this drama.^^

Awww Mysti, I hope you will feel warmer soon. Maybe you should consider moving to CA :-). Yeah, TKoDs is the only drama I am currently watching, and as I think you could tell from my comments on the recaps (is that what tipped you off on my love for this drama so far?), and maybe in last OT, yes, I am definitely invested in this drama. Good observation there :-)

Bonjour Ivoire and Mysti! It's fun to see all the fellow Beanies on here on Friday mornings. Hope you both have great weekends.

Bonjour KL, and a wonderful weekend to you as well!

Hello again everyone,

**SPOILERS**
I have two questions about TKoDs I would like to get out of the way. They are not really deep questions, yet I would appreciate some answers. Thanks!
I am trying to understand how dramas are made as I go along and as I am watching this drama, so in episode 8:

1–the TV station gives a time slot (and days to be aired) to a drama and they also give money to the drama production team to cover the costs necessary to shoot (or make) the drama? (is that it)? Does that mean the money given by Wannatabe was just to lure and secure the actors and cover the preliminary costs (I know it wasn’t a lot). I just didn’t know that TV stations gave money as well to the production companies.
I remember that Anthony also talked about the investors' money (Wannatabe's) having to be paid back in full (to CP Lee). So is that also why the TV stations help the production companies with some of the costs?

2–And the set that was built, it is a set at the SBC station or site, right? (Or on one of their locations)?
**END OF SPOILERS**

I hope everyone is doing well today. It has been raining here all night, and it is still raining. It is not very cold however, so that is nice. I had a fairly quiet week, just the usual (ok, so maybe not so quiet). That and the fact that a third family has contacted me to care for their infant son since the mom will be going back to work soon. I love babies, so we will see...

Drama wise, I am still currently enjoying TKoDs, and I hope it will stay good till the end (I really hope so). I guess we will find out soon enough, four more weeks to go.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Don't know the answer to no. 1, but I figure you're right about no. 2. At least that's what I assumed. At least having the back door right behind them gave me that impression. :)

Hello Ladysarahii, thank you for responding.
So we are thinking along the same lines. I know that TV stations have sets, and so for the "in studio" filming, I guess that will be done on the SBC site. I just wanted to double check, since I saw the (younger) producers there putting the finishing touches on something that was being built. And yes, I do know that producers (especially the assistants) work on everything and that they wear many hats.

Have a safe trip to Myanmar and come back safely as well. Are you going for business or pleasure? I didn't respond to your last comment in the last OT (I meant to) but I liked our banter, it was fun. We should do it again, some time. I hope you will have a pleasant time (if not great time) during your trip.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone!!

It's half past 3 am and taxi is here at 4.15. Am all ready and having a cup of coffee. Just CANNOT Resist having a last look at OT. And now that I know there is a love fest below, I NEED to check that out and join it before I leave. Nobody else can 'chup' Eric coz I did it already.

Ivoire, am going on holidays til 9 th. and shukmeister, terima kasih but have to correct you a little bit. It's selamat berjalan.. Very close though :)

Am a little stressed coz Myanmar is the first place I've been that has no ATM machine and does not accept credit cards so one is forced to carry cash for the WHOLE trip. Eeks. Really hate that. Everything that can be booked has been booked online including internal flights. And I have to just pray that it's all in order when I get there. I travel alone quite a bit but this time am with a friend. We've travelled together before AND still remain friends despite temper tantrums (mine), annoyances (mine) and general moodiness(mine). :p. I'm so bad. But am so consistently so that friends are able to ignore it!! Shame on me.

Korazy and all My Wondrous Beans!

I was first! It was like wet cement. I saw it and I had to try. There were no commenters! How could I not? And yet, I knew someone would be there at that moment too and I would not be first...but I was wrong about that!

However, I was not prepared to talk at that time, so I'm a bit conflicted about the propriety of having jumped in there like that.

No, what am I saying? I was first, I WAS FIRST.

Someone give me a medal, right?

I Miss You - Haven't seen Ep 8 yet but Ep 7 thrilled me deeply for what I see as hints to come of a kuh-RAZY Zoey and the two men who love her and try to deal with that, except maybe they get sucked onto the crazy train too and anyway it's all going to spiral down into madness and misery and I'm HOLDING MY BREATH from excitement. I continue to think Yoochun is more than holding his own with these more experienced actors, and am LOVING many of the secondary roles - pony-tail partner; everyone's favorite ahjumma as the cleaning woman; MOM (otherwise known as Jung Woo's girlfriend - I LOVE their relationship.); even the gangsterish daughter. Please continue to be kinda weird and therefore wonderful, drama.

Full House 2 - I cannot find a thing not to like about this show. I'm not happy poor Bunny is going blind, but I don't hate how they're doing it. Yes, I know there's some stuff that doesn't quite make sense but its minor stuff. I don't really give a sh**. I love these people and I love this show. No Min Woooooooooooooooo you are so cuuuuuute when you try to be a man. And poor little Road Manager got suckered too - all this time he thought he would be a singer? Kinda love that the show fooled us - the house we thought would be full isn't the house that ends up being full at all, is it? Grandpa! I love you!

CWGM? - I am completely infatuated with Sung Joon and Young Jae don't get me wrong. But this show is PISSING ME OFF. I HATE HATE HATE these mothers. And now he's mad at HER mom? Today's ep better go a long way to convincing me yesterday's had me fooled because I may have to stop. Yes. Stop watching. Stop watching Sung Joon. Stop watching Motorcycle Lovers. Stop watching the inevitable reunion between Ki Joong and Dong Bi and that little BITCH of a fiancee getting her comeuppance. Because those mothers are giving me heartburn and I hate them with the burning passion of a thousand fiery suns. ...maybe I could just skip the mom scenes. (breathing into a bag)

Great Seer - how is it that people think this is boring? This is so not boring. You can all kiss my butt.

Summer's Desire - let's HEAR it for Big Nosed Ho and the Serial Killer Starer. Two more eps to go. I kinda like Barbie Hsu catatonic, but the movie within a movie is creeping me out a little bit.

Time Between Dog and Wolf - I got to see like...10 minutes of that this week. Once I finish my side journey into Summer's Desire. I promise. (pats list of in-progress dramas.)

I get Korean food tonight! Last night I took Tori to the train station in Providence so she could spend overnight in Boston. My reward for being that kind of self-less mother (HEY. It's an hour away, it's driving at NIGHT, and I have to do it again TODAY) was that I was going to Moon Sun and eat something yummy and maybe talk drama with the daughter there. And yet that did not happen, because my card got on the train with the fruit of my womb. Who I hated for a moment. But then I regrouped and realized the silver lining: now I won't have to eat ALONE because when I pick her up tonight, she has to come with me. Ha. Forced conversation with Mom, that's your punishment!

I made soon dubu with kimchi and beef the other day. Also asparagus pancakes. Not entirely pleased with the results. Have to try again.

oh and I'm up to - hmmm - ep 4 of King of Dramas. Maybe? No Siwon yet. I think he's the next episode. Anthony just figured out Watanabe is a gangster who does gangster stuff. I can tell already this show is going to be awesome, even without the raving from our drama sunbaes up there (gestures vaguely toward the header because yes, in my head JB and GF are kind of sitting above us, on clouds, a little like heaven, sending down missives. Maybe it's more like Mount Olympus. No, this is drama. They're up there at the top of Namsan Tower, sending down little thought jolts to us keening masses.

Speaking of keening masses - MAMA looks like it rocked. Have to try and search out more videos. Yay uri babies for winning artist of the year!

JoAnne, check in with me when you've finished episode 8 of IMY. I'm not sure if it's me or what, but this show seems to be going every which direction to Crazyville. And I'm interested to hear your opinion of Harry's "party" look!

I give up and accept the fashion in drama just as I have learned to accept the bad hair and the sleeping in street clothes and the constant diarrhea - that being said I suppose he wanted to appear continental and mature but it doesnt suit - as for crazytown well - I have a bunch of words about that but have to save for afternoon

I am totally with you on Full House Take Two. I have taken to stalking the internet for anyone talking about it. My only beef is that I have to wait two more weeks to find out how it is going to end!
I am really hoping that the conflict between Kang-Hwi and Tae-Ik ends quickly. I want so badly for them to team up (Kang-Hwi as best friend and Tae-Ik as boyfriend) and fight LJ to the death, maybe dropping that girl off a tall cliff in the process.
Tae-Ik is killing me with all the little ways he shows Man-Ok that he likes her. The poor guy, he's so transparent and doesn't much care :)

I really really like how once he realizes he likes her, he just - shows it. There's no back and forth and no hesitation. He likes her, she likes him - even if she hasn't admitted it sober - and so he's just going to move forward as her boyfriend.

0

From when they faked the engagement, there's only been her in Tae-Ik's eyes. Even at his blustery best, he still gave in to her every time, whether or not she knew it. It has to be love, to look past that hair mop!

I really love the more mellow Tae-Ik, out from under LJ's pressure. Now he can come into his own and kick some serious buttage!

I worry for the next episode, given how this week's ended.

** SPOILER **
Man Ok going back under LJ's clutches gives me the heeby-jeebys, and I hope she uses the time to collect the evidence needed to bury him for good as well as help out poor Kang-hwi. Tae-Ik, don't lose faith!

That might be wise. This has the potential to crash and burn - which in an odd way would be ok with me too as long as it did it in a really big way. Commit to the crazy, Drama Writer. That's all I ask.

What I couldn't take would be another deeply emotional show which then when to visit the WTF Fairy for the last couple episodes.

I think my twitter should be updated from Noona Waaaaaaaaaaants to Commit to the Crazy. What do you think? How's Trini?

0

@Joanne: That is also why I did not watch Nice Guy right away. Plan to marathon Nice Guy as soon as I have free time now that I know that the ending is totally not sucky (a sucky ending would be if one of the OTP dies or worse yet, they don't end up together).

LOL re twitter.

Trinidad is fine. I have settled into my rhythm now. Adoption is on track (waiting on Adoption Board to give go ahead but the social worker is going to recommend me for the adoption). Hate the traveling though as I have to go to Chicago once a month for a week (leaving on Sunday for my December home office visit). My youngest daughter (4-year old) has finally gotten accustomed to Mummy leaving for "Cago" so she doesn't cry as much. She also adapted well to full day school (she gets up at 5:30 a.m. to leave house by 7:00 and reach school for 8:00 ... and generally reaches home at 6:00 p.m. as all her cousins are involved in competitive swimming so they have swimming practice 5 days of the week). My two new "kids" have also gotten use to having a new "mother" who does not allow them to stay up all night playing games on playstation and computer. It was a struggle at first because they did not want to do their homework and wanted to stay up late, watch tv and play games all hours of the day (before school and after school). The discipline has proven to be good for them as their grades have gone up. My 72-year uncle is with us now and he is no longer talking about dying soon. My mom is not doing so well (she is a long-term diabetic and we recently discovered that she is probably going to need dialysis within the next 6 months), so I sent her back up to Florida by my aunt to get back into the US Healthcare system. Still hoping that I can make it back to the States with the kids by June of next year but that is a long shot.

I agree with you with THE GREAT SEER! I actually enjoy watching it. It's not boring as what other people says. Maybe they have just watched the first episode only. I was kinda confused when I watched the first episode, but as I continue to watch, the story gets better and better as it progresses. The first episode is essential for you to understand the whole drama as well as the connections and conflicts between the characters.

I don't know what length your hair is at, but I've seen pics of Rihanna wearing her hair in headscarves quite a bit when she had it short and it was REALLY cute. Her hair was a pixie cut, but I think the scarf look can work for longer hair too.

It's probably best to get something in a fabric that folds easily and won't cause static, and a scarf+a few pins to hold it in place could work.

Oh Sweetie!! Eat lots of jello, it helps hair and nails grow long and strong. you already fired the stylist, good! what an idiot he was.

You wanted "bangs or fringe" cut to frame your face.

You might go get a consultation from a REALLY expensive stylist as to your options. Look for a salon with great rep or will the rich ladies go.

You might consider a perm as the curls will distract from the cut itself.

I have been through a million bad haircuts in my life and luckily they always grow out! It looks a lot worse to you than others, I'm sure.

Speaking of YEH, I wish they would cut her hair on I Miss You. It looks soooooo long and almost straggly. I'm hoping they do the mid series haircut like they do so often in these dramas.

Agreed! I prefer her earlier haircuts too. One thing I love though, is her bright pink lipsticks in I Miss You, even though red is the color this season. Makes me want to get a pink shade too. It's amazing how YEH can carry off almost anything...

I love YEH but am not sure about this role. I fell asleep while trying to watch episode 8. It seems a little confusing to me (but could just be the sleep induced haze) and her character seemed a little flat last night. I hope it picks up. I almost prefer her in the disaster that was Lie to Me! (at least we had awesome kissing scenes!)

Yeah, the drama feels off. Maybe it's the really conventional lines and the music, but it feels like I'm watching something from 10 years ago but with a modern visual sheen to it. It feels strangely archaic.

0

I like the lipstick, but they need to be careful about the shade - pink lipstick can sometimes clash with red hair.

And yeah, I feel like YEH needs a trim too. Or less straggly ponytails, the way her hair looks when it's tied back as a grownup is not very appealing either - which is a shame when the child version of her had such gorgeous, glossy hair.

Ow Kika! That's one nasty thing to happen to your hair. It feels like it took ages to for my hair to finally reach the length it had before I had the insane idea to cut it shorter and the hairdresser messed up. Stupid hairdressers! Luckily it's now longer than it's ever been, and I'm not planning to ever cut it short again! I hope you hair grows fast and you find some nice way to deal with it in the meantime! Maybe you can curl it a bit, so the short parts won't be too noticeable?

The long parts are too long to make it look like it's one with the short parts even with curling I think. But I agree that long hair's always the best! It's nearly impossible to go wrong with it. And I actually think that short hair makes one look older even though conventional opinion is otherwise.

Put a colored streak in it, long earrings to focus on the neck, and proudly dare anyone to say anything bad about it!

Act like you deliberately wanted the dog to chew your hair. Confidence is everything!

"Act like you deliberately wanted the dog to chew your hair. Confidence is everything!"

I tried, and it doesn't work ;(((

Apparently dog-ate hair doesn't appeal to anyone's sense of beauty.

Maybe you should go back and demand a recut! Unless you are afraid to have her ever touch your hair again!

Yes I considered that! And he actually offered a recut, but no, he's coming nowhere within 1 feet of my hair. *shudders*

After watching FHT2, I'm not convince what people think is beautiful hair. I haven't had mine more than blunt cut in decades, and my mother has despaired of ever seeing her youngest in bangs again (the last time was...oh...maybe 1986?). Hee hee hee

Thanks! I usually just bull ahead with any and all crazy hair, because even if it causes small children to cry, no one is going to tell me it's awful to my face. [grin]

Happy OT beaners, kdrama addicts/enthusiasts!!!

How's your day? I'm only watching King of Dramas and it's sooo good! My only complaint is that the plot is kind of repetitive. I mean, when will the drama start to shoot? Will it ever get to shoot? Can we get the conflict on the drama's shooting and storyline not the same old villain machinations?

I'm still enjoying the show because of the characters. They're just so endearing.

Oh yes... I'm so tired of the repetitive back and forth between Director Oh/Empire & Anthony/World Productions. The machinations does reveal much of the characters we love, but we all know too that World Productions will prevail.

And... I'm almost ashamed to say this, but I want more the the cute between Go-eun and Anthony!

I'm enjoying King of Dramas as well, but it totally exhausts me. I'd like one episode where we just have fun & enjoy the characters & the art of producing dramas. Because frankly, if this is how it REALLY is, why would anyone want to be in the business. I'd rather go to the gynecologist ;-)

Hahaha! I actually used the term "manic" to describe it. I, too, would like more personal interaction between the leads and less of the constant back and forth with Anthony and Empire. Plus I'd like to see how they handle the actually filming of the drama.

I've just had a crap week at work but I'm so glad it's the weekend already (well, I have to work a half day tomorrow but that's better than a full day).

What's everyone up to? This bean is currently stuck on a You're Beautiful rewatch, and I don't want it to end because that show is SO. MUCH. SQUEEEEEEEEEE. Also debating catching up with this week's I Miss You (I'm in the mood for fluff/happy right now and downers are not welcome, good as that show is - even Nice Guy was more of a thrill ride than the devastation this threatens).

I've also started on Shut Up Flower Boy Band, which is AWESOME - probably coming in second place to Arang as my favourite drama of the year, and I love the music (Robert Smith/Crystal Castles cover? I like this already).

Oh yes, the Robert Smith/Crystal Castles cover surprised me when I heard it. Their music choices are spot on and even their originals (sung by Sung Joon in future episodes) are simply delightful. Ahh and the eye candies!!! My sister is absolutely head over heels for lee hyun jae!

You know a show has good eye candy when you aren't lamenting the loss of LEE MIN KI after two episodes, lol

I love all the boys, and your sister has great taste. And speaking of Sung Joon, idk if it's his hair in SUFBB, but he kind of reminds me of Oguri Shun here!

That's what I thought too! Sung Joon = Oguri Shun Lee Min-ki = Narimiya Hiroki. well, just by the vibe they gave off. Just so happens that Oguri and Narimiya are quite the close friends.

yeah, it's almost cinematic in feel somehow - not at all like a normal drama.

Arang is probably my fave kdrama of all time now, I was nervous hearing that LJK (reason #1 why I watched it)would be doing another sageuk but his chemistry with Shin Mina (reason #2) is so amazing, my fingers are crossed that they'll reunite in another kdrama some day. And it's a fantastic cast *sigh*

I hope they will, but in the land of Kdramas, it's rare. Maybe in movies they would.

Ahhh, they're my favorite couple of the year along with Lee Seung-gi and Ha Ji-won.

yeah, she's done a drama+ a movie with Joo Ji Hoon, so maybe she can do a movie with LJK now?

I don't care if it's just a movie or they pull a Jang Hyunk-Lee Da Hae, I just want to see them together onscreen again!

This is one of the few OSTs I have purchased. Every song on the CD is awesome, and it cycles over & over as I am never in a hurry to eject. SUFBB is one of the years best dramas, at least it is in my top 3 (along with QIHM and TK2H).

Hey vivi, if you want someone to discuss IMY with, dangermousie is doing recaps/reaction posts at her livejournal.

I'd love to have recaps here too, especially since the events of episode 3 haven't been handled in an exploitative or disrespectful manner as far as I've seen (upto episode 6), and they do a good job of showing us the impact it's had on Soo Yeon and Jung Woo's lives......BUT it's still a minefield to include in a drama, and I don't blame JB or GF for not wanting to take that risk, no matter how good the show is or how haunted Yoon Eun Hye looks as the older Soo Yeon.

Hey vivi! I started reading here during, I think, the Boys Before Flowers recaps? lol. But I only started hanging out here like a compulsive when the Arang/Nice Guy combination happened.

And I don't know why I didn't do it earlier - there are SO MANY SHOWS that I would have loved to comment on while they were being recapped, and going back to past comments just kills me.

Happy OT everyone. So much to say....

1 finally watched arang and the magistrate n it was such a cute little story. I loved how everything made sense even the reincarnation stuff. Not gonna say more don't wanna spoil it for those who have not watched it! All d characters, hell even the side characters were all lovely and I loved that the villain wasn't just a villain for villain's sake....if anyone understands that. There was a reason behind her madness. That being said, I think the storyline dragged out too much... There was no need in my point of view for it to be a 20 episode drama....16/18 would have been just fine. I also wished the romance showed a little more, I feel like they could have included it more....but the ending scene was just the CUTEST!! Those child actors were toooo cute, especially the girl! That being said....
2 I can see how Nice Guy took over in ratings. I finally watched nice guy and oh boy!! I had to marathon thru that shit!! I couldn't watch one episode at a time and I don't know people did that! That show was epic....except the last two episodes. I swear why is it that once a drama is nearing my epic list, they fuck up in some way or another...the last two episodes had me in WTF-land!!!! Nothing made sense its like all the progress made didn't mean anything anymore...especially the last episode. I don't even know till now, if he had amnesia or propasgnosia, of he remembers who she is.....ahh it's so frustrating. N what happened with the company?? n i can't believe how short the murder sentence is in Korea. With my cons out of the way, SJK and MCW are amazing actors. How she managed to pull off a total amnesiac after being a total bitch the previous episodes was amazing!!! SJK is an amazing actor n I HAVE LAIN CLAIM TO HIM! He was able to play Maru in such a way that I can't imagine any other actor in his role! The storyline was a little predictable but it didn't stop it from being amazing! The villain bitch....ahhhhhhhhh I wanted to jump into the drama n strangle her to her death...haha. She just pissed me off in soooooooo many ways! Choco and Kwang Soo's character...at first I thought they were useless but they served their purpose n were a little cuter I finally understand what Jb and GF meant when they said they wanted her to die....the story would have been more epic if she did!
Okies well m rambling....haha. Next on my list is answer me 1997... But exam finals are coming up in three weeks n there's a whole lot of shit to read so maybe over Christmas break...we shall see...haha.
How is everyone else doing???

Things are sunny in Virginia.
I had a cold last week, where I just took NyQuil and stayed under the comforter for two days, but I'm out of it and raring to go!
I also have a formal affair to go to this weekend, and, on an impulse, I pulled out last year's gown and it fits better this year! Woot! I have this year's couture (ha ha, not really a fashion horse) narrowed down to two: elegant or flirty. Decisions decisions!

Glad to see everything is well with you!

Anyone here watching I miss you/Missing you? I'm on the inevitably sinking ship that is Soo Yeon/Hyung Joon. I just can't get with Soo Yeon/Jung Woo ship. The writer did a very terrible job with jung woo character and making me sooo not root for him, ugh this is making me frustrated :P
