Name That Drama: Makjang galore and a chicken meet cute
As always, feel free to email us your questions and requests for future Name That Drama installments.
- This sounds like the makjang-iest makjang that ever makjang’d
I honestly don’t remember if I have sent an email asking about this drama already, but here goes. It’s a period drama, and I believe it was Chinese. I only remember a few scenes, but this rich girl finds some secret information (I believe in a compact) that has to do with her best friend’s parents and ends up getting captured by some Chinese spy type group. The group recruits the girl with the promise of protecting her friend if she helps them bring down the people who are (I think) trying to give China over to Japan.
There is one scene where this Japanese soldier was supposed to marry the main girl’s friend but ends up getting betrayed and killed, and his identity is taken over by another guy and he goes to meet the girl. The main girl tricks her best friend and sets it up so the friend trips in the bathroom and sprains her ankle and therefore is unable to go to meet the guy, and the main girl goes in her place. I also remember the mother of the friend jumping through a window and
dying to warn the girl’s father that people were coming to arrest him, and I think the father dies as well. Then the main girl and her friend become enemies because she blames her for her parent’s deaths.
- Name That Drama from a Variety Show
So I was watching the variety show Knowing Bros (on JTBC), and on the episode with Kim Hee-sun (Episode 66), at one point they’re playing a game where someone does a wall confession (where a guy leans really close to a girl against a wall and stares her in the eyes), and they showed clips of it from dramas.
There’s one drama or movie that looks like it’s in a school (the clip is around 21:22) and I really want to watch that drama from just those five seconds alone! (There is some serious chemistry on display — the guy knows how to smolder!) The problem is, I don’t recognize either of the actors so I just tried googling variations of “Knowing Bros 66 drama clip” and “Kim Hee-sun wall confession school drama” with zero results. If anyone could watch the clip and let me know if they recognize the drama I would be very grateful!
- This sounds like it probably ends badly
I watched this really beautiful Chinese/Taiwanese (probably?) movie a few years ago. I wanted to watch it again but forgot the title. The female lead is suffering from some kind of terminal disease and her mother is overprotective of her.
I remember a scene where the male lead is chasing a hen wearing a hen costume. The hen lands on the female lead’s lap, and she starts hiccuping. Another scene: The male lead is in a band and he performs with the band in front of the college for her. Aww.
Please help me remember this! Thank you!
- Name that Gif (This is a new one!)
So I saw this gif on Facebook and wanted to find out the movie or drama. It’s Chinese (perhaps).
The girl is dressed in traditional clothes and the guy is dressed in ancient elite guard clothes. He has her in a chokehold and she starts flailing. And suddenly, she picks her nose and flicks the snot on the guard.
I found the scene so interesting but could not find out which movie/ drama it was from. Please help me find out, fellow Beanies!
- Will fauxcest ever leave us all alone?
So, there was this thing I watched some time back (I don’t remember when), and I don’t remember whether it was a drama or a movie or whether it was Korean, Taiwanese or Japanese. It may have been Taiwanese.
Anyway, all I remember from the plot is that the main couple was about to get married, and they were standing in the church looking pretty and happy. And then during the “Does anyone have any objection” part, the girl’s father says he does, and everyone is just stunned as to why. The immediate family gathers in a side room and the father reveals that the main couple may be siblings!!!!! This puts a stop to their marriage, obviously, and they agree to not get married till further investigation.
I was watching Golden Pouch and the similar plot just made this scene pop into my mind and I just cannot remember where I have seen it!! Help me!!
Thanks for playing, everyone — till next time!
