Happy Friday, Beanies!

I am wondering if anyone who understands Korean can help me with my problem. I've been surfing the net to search for music sheets of KDrama OSTs, and while some famous ones are easily accessible, most are kind of hard to find. Then I found this site which has a few good ones (although not up-to-date). The thing is, I need to log in before I can download the sheets (I think). I can read hangul, but I can not understand the words (hehe), so can anyone guide me on how to create an account on this site? I feel like I can manage myself after that.

Here's the link: http://musicsky.co.kr/

Oh and if you have some good music sheet sources too, may I ask for them? Thank you so much!

I'm sure you've seen funguypiano on YT. I love his arrangements. He was having problems finding music too, but you might be able to communicate with him and see what he has used. He started his page because he couldn't find good arrangements. He also has a Facebook page.

I hope that Beanies will share their kdrama sheet music resources bountifully! It would be a gold star day for me to find easy access to ost songs, too. I used to doggedly track them down using links found on soompi but that got away from me years ago, now I would hardly know where to start again(that soompi thread is crazy unwieldy). Best of luck on the hunt, Mango Juice!

Same, I'd love to know where people find music. I learned a few piano pieces from Goblin thanks to DooPiano (on youtube), but he/she took the sheetmusic down due to copyright issues. :'(

I'm feeling like a real growed-up kdrama fan as I'm currently watching 3 live dramas rather than binging on finished ones. My Secret Romance, Suspicious Partners and Man2Man. Woah - having to live with so much delayed gratification is exhausting!

Kekeke, I'm loving how deliciously ribald it is at times - like when our hero takes our heroine into the room of underwear and talks about having to reveal everything. And the mystery of the jewellery box - who knew padding in the storyline could be so hilarious 😉. Oh and Secretary Jang's suits!

I am the same way. I try not to watch currently airing dramas because I am all about binge watching. But I am watching Chicago Typewriter, Mystery Queen and My Secret Romance. There really wasn't anything else out that was appealing to me which is why I started these. I don't know how people do it. I need to have my instant gratification! It also hurts more when dramas (like Chicago Typewriter) have pre-emptions.

Atleast I only started MSR a couple days ago and the drama ends soon.

Yes! The drama addict in me is so happy to be back to having a full line-up to watch (MSR, SP, CT - 1 ep live a day except Sunday) after a rather slow spring season! So in fact the gratification is not so delayed as there is always another drama to tie you over while waiting for the next new ep. Enjoy!

OT week 15 (I think). I hope everyone is having a great Friday! I’m going on vacay! Will be in Italy for 2 weeks, so may not be around here much. But before I go, just a short summary of this past week.

I finished Oh Hae Young. It had a very satisfying ending. Thank you for the recommendations! And we started Liar and His Lover. I really identify with this one; it’s the first music-related kdrama I’ve seen, and I’m not into the kpop scene at all, but I do LOVE music, in almost any form. I was a music minor in college. Looking forward to seeing how this plays out. It reminds me of my college days, which really don’t seem that long ago. So what kdramas do you identify with the most? Is there one that reminded you of your own life and love, requited or not?

Short dialogue today:

Me (while packing): Should I wear make-up tomorrow? If not, I’ll pack everything in the suitcase tonight. If I don’t wear make-up, I’ll look like I’m sixteen and sick (I have dark circles have no lip pigment) which will make you look like you robbed the cradle, or are having an affair with the nanny, or kidnapped 3 kids, and one of them has cancer. If I do, then none of this stuff can be put away until the morning—and it’ll be a pain to pack it up last minute. Such is the plight of your wife.

Hubby (while getting ready for bed): I don’t think you realize how little I care what you do. Such is the plight of your husband.

(Later that night while watching Liar…)

Me (catching my husband up to the plot): So the bass player of Crude Play I don’t think wants to be a bass player with the band anymore, and is trying to produce So Rim’s band.

Hubby (in total deadpan): No bass player ever wants to stay a bass player in any band. Such is the plight of bass players.

Me: 😆😆😆😆🤣🤣🤣🤣

Moral of the story: Bass players really do have the short end of the stick.

Second moral: I split the difference and I'm going all Korean and just wearing blush, mascara and lipstick today.

Third moral: VACAY, here we come!

Oh Italy that's cool :o Have a nice trip !

I identify with Reply 1997 because of the heroine who is a fangirl. She reminds me of my earlier years of being a Kpop fan but less wild. Weightlifting Kim Bok Ju and Age of Youth are about college and friends just coming-of-age dramas and it speaks so much to me being currently a student.

Always, Kim Sam Soon as a character. Not that beautiful , insecure in love, talented at work, outspoken and with an outsize sense of justice for others. The Korean Lizzy Bennet only enhanced for kdrama. I love her and she's my girl.

Have an awesome trip!

It's Kim Mi Young in Fated to Love You for me. Not the plot, thank goodness, but I really identified with the character. The way she is a people pleaser. The way her friend has to coach her on how to say No. And when she turned and looked into the camera and explained that she is a post-it note, someone everyone needs but no one values, who can be used and disposed of without leaving a mark -- well, let's just say I still use a screenshot of that moment as my avatar on another forum. And despite all of that, she had a quiet inner strength and resiliency that I aspire to.

I know a lot of women don't like doormat characters. Find them boring and anti-feminist. And I get that. But I'm glad there are still a few of them out there to be role models for women like me.

Amilia I hope that kdramas will continue to present a variety of female characters, and not listen to a loud (probable) minority who want all female characters to be the same. Sometimes I am in the mood to watch a sassy female lead, and sometimes I am in the mood to watch a very sweet female lead who has quiet strength. So I hope that kdramas will continue to offer variety.

As for "fated to love you" I like the TW-drama and wish they would remake it, but I couldn't get into the k-drama because of the male lead (I couldn't stand that they made him certifiable with a stupid/annoying laugh). But I like the female lead, and I agree her description about herself feels real, even if I haven't had her experiences (and that is the sign of good writing, when the character feels real in their struggles - even if the viewer hasn't had those same struggles. So the viewer cares and roots for the male or female lead).

Hi Beanies !

I never knew planning a trip was that hard ! Luckily dramas are here to put me in a good mood.

I watched KBS Drama Special Explicit Innocence a few months ago and forgot to talk about it. The story is about a gyu wanting to do it for the first time with his girlfriend. There's nothing shocking or R-rated (you know it's KBS) but some parts made me anxious lol. Beside that, it showed the main character's choice of carrier and growth. It was good and quite funny !

Futureless things : @kaybee recommended it last month in OT. It is a really good movie and I love how it depicted various ordinary people with concerns : the discrimination of North Korean workers, LGBT couples, young adults struggling with jobs and/or studies and more.

Ode to Joy Season 2 : The opening is cute even if this season will be heavier I think. I like Andy's current love interest because he can help her open herself and discover the joy to live without restriction. And it doesn't seem like he will make her uncomfortable unlike the previous one. It was nice to see the rest of the girls spending the New Year with their family and friends. I'm still waiting for episode 2 to be subbed !

Individualist Ji-young : It felt like watching a film. I love the leads relationship and how each other presence infected their life. I want more of this kind of drama.

Father is Strange : I normally watch it on KBSWorld but I'm so addicted that I watched this week's episode ! What a way to embarrass your sister-in-law ha ! Mi Young and Actor Ahn are too cute :3 When he and the sisters were together they looked like real siblings. The elder brother is growing more concerned about his status as the eldest. I share the same mind set as Hye Young when she said “Mom and I have different values. Nobody is right or wrong.” However I think it was bad that she played with words about living with a “boy” friend.

Happy Friday :D

I am glad you are addicted to FIS because it is same for me. After CT, FIS is the next drama that I cannot wait to see the next epi. Last week, just for a moment I shipped Jong Hee- Hye Yeong and thought, how awesome if we can get OTP which is so eccentric like this lol. 😂😂 If Lee Yu Ri and Seo Jun Young can be sunbae-hoobae in Super Daddy Yeol,and then be a couple in their next drama Heaven Promise, I think we can get Lee Joon - Lee Yuri couple in the next next drama! Lee Joon even posted selca with Lee Yuri in his IG 😂 I feel bad to momentarily shipping them😂 Sorry Mi Young ah!

LOL I laughed so hard when she said she want to call police to report domestic violence (because her mom keep hitting her) 😆 She is a lawyer and she is good in twisting her words.

I cannot feel bad so much for Yoo Joo because she is not showing her sign of remorse, maybe a little. She was messing with the sisters. I understood that she didnt want to be overshadowed by the sisters - but by only giving shoes to one sister and ignore the rest, lol she asked for it👋 Wait until Ra Young learns about the bully, it will be in no time their parents know about it too.

Hae Young's parents gave up to be mad with her - she cannot be defeated 😂 and when her parents seems to try to acccept her logics, haha i love them. But I feel her, she tried as much as possible not to let anyone else know about her meeting with Jong Hwan's mother eight years ago. I saw the preview and I cannot wait for next epi!

I cannot wait to see next epi for Chicago Typewriter! Hopefully there will be kisssss🙈🙈🙈

Still not really sure about Ruler and Suspicious Partner - i cannot say I m really loving them or not. But for now will continue to watch it. I love that Eun Bong Hee is quite shameless and sassy - in a good way and I want her to continue to be that way. But the legal element in this drama is quite disappointing for me, not that I dislike legal drama. How I wished this drama is about other job. In that sense, I am counting days for Ssam My Way to begin! Please be good drama. Ruler is so heart breaking , but I cannot fully ignore the weak acting by second leads. I will give few more weeks to see if I want to continue watching or not. With Ssam My Way, Circle and Lookout start next week, we will be given more options.

It is hard to say, but goodbye Rebel! 😭 I will be missing you a lot, Hong family! Although there will be several upcoming sageuk this year, I dont think they can beat Rebel in my heart. Not a flawless drama, but it left you with very good memories and feeling - from the storyline, amazing casts (not a single mediocre acting from these casts, from the good ones to baddies, even the minor casts did a very good job), its OSTs and everything. I am looking forward to see this writer and PDnim next sageuk and please continue to cast good actors - the underrated and talented ones.

This drama is just a little upgrade version of SWDBS with more mature couple lol. While I failed to stay until the end for SWDBS, but for this drama maybe I will stay until the end. I want more moments between these three Bong Hee -Ji Wook -Eun Hyuk, and for second female lead, if she is just to be a bothersome ex gf, they better reduce her screentime.

I'm watching for romcom too!! And the suspense too, because it makes the OTP getting closer.

1

@Sera
Oh no I'm afraid I've got to disagree with you there. Imho it's unfair to compare SP to SWDBS. Even if SP is not well-written it's still in another league. As far as writing is concerned, SWDBS is a mess that I want to forget about along with other messes I watched last year and earlier this year too. Acting is an entirely different matter, though, and I've got nothing to complain about the actors and actresses even though I personally feel like SWDBS is a waste to PBY's talent and a bad professional choice on her part. SP still has its blatant plot holes but so far it's not as juvenile and pointless as SWDBS appears to me.

7

@HyeMi It's OK 😀 The reason why I comparing these two because both give quite similar feeling for me - romcom with crime /legal elements. And I am so agree that PBY was wasted in SWDBS.

2

@Sera
I agree they're similar as far as the genre is concerned, but to me SP is more than a little upgrade from SWDBS :P.
I'm hoping the second female lead in SP would have a lot more to offer than the usual stereotypical petty and jealous girlfriend.

Happy 500 OT! Turns out that this is also my 500th post. Is this kismet or serious planning? 😛

So I've been watching asian dramas, web series, shorts, and animation for a while now and I've kind of forgotten what exactly it that keeps me loving and watching them. They definitely portrayed social issues in different ways, a result of differences in social norms etc I presume. Probably it was how male lead characters "love" their female counterparts.

My first kdrama was Coffee Prince. It felt like such a breath of fresh air at the time and addressed subject matter like sex and sexuality in interesting ways I hadn't seen before. My first kmovie was The Man From Nowhere. This one was more simple. I loved it because the action was pretty dang good and Won Bin is plain awesome. However I really couldn't say what keeps me watching especially when I compare asian dramas to their western counterparts.

So my question to you guys is this. What sucked you into the asian drama world, and what keeps you watching till this day?

Getting used to listening to the language really does help in watching shows, especially if I generally don't get what is being said. I light up when those one or two words pop up that I can identify--funny enough I get annoyed when subs mess around with little things like peoples names. I think the same goes for getting used to the culture in term of social norms etc. It makes it easier to understand why people do what they do.

Forgot to say, I'm beginning to appreciate the one season run a lot more now. I used to so desperately want to see what happens next in the characters lives because western TV shows typically give us that format, but I tend to look at dramas as more like very long movies now. If they are done right, they can be a fulfilling and enjoyable experience. Hmmm...guess that's one reason why I'm still watching them.

For me, it was a thread on amazon romance forum about kdramas, and the poster was asking about kdramas. I read the thread, and then got curious. So I checked out kdramas, and started with "You're Beautiful" and the rest is history. I have been watching kdramas for almost 5/6 years now, and barely watch any Western television anymore.

I think the reason why kdramas satisfy me (despite their flaws), is because they are in the genre I like which is romance. I find the characters a lot more realistic in their actions and reactions (especially female characters). I like that romance is always either the genre of the drama or one of the major genres of the drama (in general). I also like that kdramas don't drag on for years, and present a complete story in 16 to 24 episodes, so the viewer doesn't get bored, or stuck for years to get a full story. I also like that this format allows for many dramas to get done with different premises, and allows for creative ideas to be explored as plots.

Basically kdramas are great entertainment, and stress relievers, and that is something that is unfortunately lacking in Western shows for me.

That's why I have stuck with kdramas for years as well. They are primetime television with women unabashedly as their target audience. In the US, television targeted to women is decidedly second tier. Daytime soaps or Lifetime Originals. Primetime tv is targeted towards men. Which doesn't mean women can't enjoy it as well, of course, but even the shows I like don't speak to me like dramas do. And yes​, a lot of that is due to the way they focus on things I care about -- romance and interpersonal relationships of all kinds.

The TV was on, it was showing a Hong Kong drama, and I just sat down and started watching. I was probably like four. Been watching dramas ever since. HK dramas are like my comfort food, though I have also branched into Japanese and Korean dramas. These days, J-dramas are more my speed - shorter episode count and generally tighter storytelling.

My first k-drama that I finished was probably Dae Jang-geum. It was a solid drama, but a bit tedious at 54 episodes.

Your gateway experience sounds like my anime experience. I was a tad bit older and it's not so much my comfort food anymore. I guess that's because I'm less into superficial action stuff and more into slice of life stuff. Oddly enough though, this season has a pretty good action anime with some substance, so I have one foot back in I guess.

An acquaintance of mine also loves J-dramas for similar reasons to yours. I'm trying to get her back to the dark side (k-dramas). I like dramas because they are arguably less conservative than K-dramas. By that I mean they address topics of sex and sexuality in a way that less frustrating than K-dramas. Have you seen Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories by the way. It just popped in my head for some reason. Maybe I'm hungry. Or maybe it's one of the few J-dramas I've seen and liked. It's available on Netflix.

Heh, anime was never my thing. The only anime I finished and still remember fondly was Ranma ½ - I think I watched everything about it, even the OVAs. I loathed the live-action and never went near it though.

J-dramas do explore more themes and are not as conservative. They do slice of life really well. And when they're dark, they are really dark (and we haven't even gotten to J-cinema), so I do like the no-holes barred approach in some of the heavier dramas. WOWOW tends to have excellent stuff.

I haven't seen the Tokyo Stories one since I don't have Netflix. But I've seen every other season of Shinya Shokudo, and I highly recommend that series if you haven't seen it.

Yes, there's a k-remake, but it felt very staged, and very off.

I watched the original and liked it, so I had a bias going in. But the remake is quite different from the source material, so much so that I prefer to think of it as an adaptation. That aside, the show did have to much side stories or an real development between the second leads. It was just our OTP for most of the show. The main couple featured solid actors in their 30s who had an amazing chemistry. This was buttressed by a good script which didn't skimp on the kisses--which weren't just pecks on the lips. The character development was also pretty solid and it never really fell into the pitfalls many other kdramas tend to find themselves. In sum, good actors, amazing chemistry, and a believable romance that one small piece of makjang aside.

I think 1% of Something was cute but it wasn't anything special. It's an enjoyable light and fluffy rom-com so if that's what you want it's a perfect drama. There wasn't too much plot but that actually worked in its benefit. It focused primarily on the cute couple without too much filler cluttering things.

Reading your summary makes me think that maybe I wasn't into the couple and the comedy part (yet) so I felt the nothing-new-in-there was a major alert of me getting bored later on, hence I stopped watching. I am all with cute leads but maybe this didn't work well for me back then. Anyway, thanks for the reply TrinPie!

What is your preference? If you want to watch classic ones

Romcom: My Girl Full House, Sassy Girl Chun Hyang. There are some others too but My Lovely SamSoon and My Girls are always my fav.

Classic melodrama - Winter Sonata, Autumn in My Heart, Stairway to Heaven, Thank You, I'm Sorry I love You.

There are so many to watch from the recent ones. But my recommendation will be It's OK It's Love, Chief Kim, Age of Youth, etc etc etc. (too many) 😂

Dalja's Spring is fun, smartly written and has endearing leads who have lovely chemistry. Great OST too. Love Marriage is pretty cute too.

For more serious stuff, try: Story of a Man, Beautiful Mind, Heartless City (first 8-10 episodes) and Chuno.

So, I've been catching up with a few dramas.

Tunnel
Well, I don't like crime/mystery dramas but even I can see the appeal! It's a great show, with the feels and humor...and creeps lol!

My Secret Romance
It's cliché and all but I think that for their first romance OCN isn't doing so bad. And they have the flashback concept down to a T. I mean, come on, flashbacks of what happened 3 minutes ago? And in almost every episode? Do I look like Dory?

I'm thinking of binge watching Rebel this weekend. It was so dark in the beginning that I thought, "it's gonna get worse, obviously, and if you look how it's starting, this won't have a happy ending". And so I stopped watching it after 3 episodes. Regretting it now and gonna change that!

Stalker Oppa strikes again and that deer eye girl from Strange Family (that brutal form of acting) is at the receiving end. In low budget daily drama she looked pretty plain but here in a PTD with the help of some good makeup and good clothes she changed not her persona but acting style too.
Suspicious Partner plus is its dialogues and characters rest of it is big mess.

Want to start Thief-nom, Thief-nim.
Who is watching Time, Loveless?

Note - Various dramas subbed trailers are available on their respective Youtube Channels e.g: Viki, Dramafever, Kbs world Tv.

Rich Hero Poor Heroine - Contract marriage and lot of melodrama. Help me find this one. Curiosity is the driving force here and once its gone it won't have any meaning at all.

CatoCat -

Regarding your 2nd note request, I'm assuming you're asking for the name of the drama. The first one that comes to mind is Marriage Contract with Lee Seo-jin and UEE. This was a drama from last year so it's fairly recent. ....... The second one that comes to mind is an older drama called White Lies. Although it's not strictly a "contract" situation, it was an agreement/arrangement sort of thing where the lead actress agreed to marry the younger brother (who had some sort of disability or ailment, I don't recall) of her ex-boyfriend, whom she had had a child with. It's makjang central, this one and long. But I don't know if this is the one you may be trying to remember.

That show is different from the shows your provided.

The scenes i saw were in an FMV - problem is i wasn't logged in youtube and browsing content in private mode so i have no way to find that video.

It has your typical rich, cold and aloof male hero and mature female lead. Contract marriage was brought on by Mother. There is a car accident too.

Happy 500 open threads DB❣

I'm currently watching I remember you and I'm almost finished- it was on my list for a while, after hearing good things about it but only just got round to it and it's SO GOOD😌

I was looking through my music playlist earlier and almost everything is korean. I listen to a mixture of Korean music but it's mainly ballads and OSTs. I just find that they're so easy to listen to and there's always that one song that clicks and you want to listen to it on repeat. At the moment my song on repeat is Sandeul's one more step in introverted boss. I don't want to overplay it though bc I know I end up not liking it as much 😪

What are your fave songs (korean & non Korean)?

K-pop: I'm into CNBLUE and DBSK (5 members). I cant choose what song, because all of them is great.

Non K-pop, legendary songs like Bogoshipda (Kim Bum Soo), Goose's Dream (Insooni), Emergency Room (Izi). Oh, and all of Yiruma's piano.

J-music: One Ok Rock, Naruto OST, old anime OST.

I'm Indonesian so I mostly listen to Indo song and I subjectively think that it's just as good as Korean song (non K-pop).

Old western is great, since they didn't use synthesizer or autotune. I hate synthesizer and autotune.

On YT, I subscribe Sungha Jung (guitarist) and JunCurryAhn (violist).

For classic, I really love Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata, Tchaikovsky's Overture 1812, and Vivaldi's Four Season.

In short, I listen to many things even though I'm tone deaf lol.

Hi mahoilam - since my bias is a Korean singer called Hwang Chi Yeul, I pretty much just listen to only his songs - mainly covers of songs he sang on shows like "Immortal Songs 2" and "I Am A Singer China", but he does have some OSTs and songs, eg his OST "Because I Miss You - Yeong version" for "Moonlight Drawn By Clouds". His voice is the male voice in this duet on "King of Masked Singer" - the beautiful female voice belongs to Jung Hye Sung (she played the adorable sister of Park Bo Gum's character in MDBC) . The song is called "Miracle" - original by Kim Dong Ryul. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ee6PNdvGcJU

Final exams next week and I honestly feel like I would be taking up summer classes, lol.

As I've been busy for the whole month, I'm only watching two: My Secret Romance and Tunnel. I'm also planning to watch Suspicious Partner when it passes on the 10th episode mark.

My Secret Romance: Oh, definitely old school vibe. I'm enjoying it though I feel like we're going totally 2000's K-drama border next week. Bring it on, Chairman Daddy.

Tunnel: Can't believe it'll end this weekend! It has been a fun ride, especially since I'm loving all the leads. Not really feeling the vibe of the antagonist but then again, my standards have gotten higher thanks to Kim Jaewook in Voice (oops).

Not sure if I'll pick Ruler up but I'm pretty sure with Seven Day Queen since I'm a trash for YWJ, lol. I'm so ready for the heartache a la Bubu Jing Xin.

I also watched REBEL and loved it to bits. I held off on starting RULER, MASTER OF THE MASK until this past week so I wouldn't be too distracted during the finale. I'm up to date with it now, and enjoying it a lot.

For the same reason as you, I'm gearing up for SEVEN DAY QUEEN. Having watched SAIMDANG, LIGHT'S DIARY, I'm expecting an angstfest with King Jungjong.

I'm also looking forward to MY SASSY GIRL in Joseon (Joo Won in a sageuk at last), and LIVE UP TO YOUR NAME (yay, Kim Nam-gil!). It'll be interesting to see how comedy and acupuncture mix.

As for upcoming shows with modern settings, LOOKOUT (for Shin Dong-wook) and CRIMINAL MINDS (for Lee Joon-gi) have my undivided attention. Ditto for DUAL (and Yang Se-jong, now that he's out of the OR at Doldam Hospital).

So many Kdramas, so little time. ;-)

Continued fun this week reading all the Fan Walls. The Beanies continue to be so creative and so funny!

Watched this week:

Whisper - Up to episode 8 and rebellious Soo-yeon continues to miscalculate. ..... And this Chairman Kang character --- what an awful person.

Mystery Queen - Seol-ok's husband. Why am I not surprised? ..... I still have to watch episode 14 though.

Strong Woman Do Bong-soon - Finally saw the last episode! ..... Will certainly miss Bong-bong and Min-min. ..... As a final note, I was constantly asking myself what they used on Park Hyung-sik's hair. It had texture and hold that just looked great. Whatever it was, I want that product!

That's all for now. ....... Everyone take care and have a great Friday!

Re: Seol Ok's husband

I have a feeling that he isn't really cheating, because he looks mostly annoyed at that scene in the boutique with the mystery-gf. Or maybe he's just the type of guy that doesn't really care about love, because it seems that he's not in love with his wife either. When he asked SO if she spent the day with Det Ha, he doesn't seem too jealous for me but more angry about their involvement in the taxi driver case.

I shed a tear with SO at that elevator scene and I am so glad that Wan Seung is there to save the day! I do wish he would learn a thing or two from his captain about wooing a lady though, LOL.

Whether SO's husband is cheating or not, he shouldn't have brought another woman to the function. It makes it seem like that woman is his other half. I don't like it. Why can't he bring his wife to the function? Is he ashamed of her? He feels embarrassed to be bringing her to such events?

Wouldn't be surprised if it's for a promotion or sucking up to higher up. But regardless, it's weird that he “hides“ the fact that he was a wife especially since they have been married for long. This marriage is already rocky as it is and I have a feeling the drama will end with divorce so WS and SO can start anew. With WS arrested as well, we probably won't see any lovey dovey moment and their bonding moment in the bar in this episode is the only thing that we will get in this series. What a waste of sizzling chemistry - but then I know this isn't a romcom so can't complain.

This week I started 3 new dramas, while still live watching Mystery Queen (my crack! but it's ending! sadface!):

-Whisper : Couldn't continue to episode 2, this is a bit too makjang for my taste, especially the last scene in episode 1 where the PD inserted thunder to make the scene more dramatic. So cheesy! It's good to have Lee Bo Young back though, she's so pretty and such a natural on screen.

- My Secret Romance : I have to admit I have prejudice against idol-actors and I refused to watch it for that reason (same goes for Liar & Lover), but then one day, I had a dream about this drama and I just feel the need to watch Sung Hoon badly the next day. Weird huh? Long story short, this drama isn't bad to pass time, the chemistry of the leads is no 1% of Anything, or maybe because the female lead's character is OTT ditzy that I just can't get into liking her that much. Performance-wise though, the actress is not bad, in fact Sung Hoon made me cringe more sometimes with his over-acting. This drama offers nothing new with the plot and lazily-written characters (and I don't get how the lazy chaebol suddenly becomes a workaholic) but I guess this drama is like chicklit / harlequin novels, it's not deep and you may eye-rolled a lot, but it's a nice guilty pleasure.

- Suspicious Partner : I had no idea what the story is (other than there's supposed to be an amnesiac killer on the loose? LOL) and I am starting this for the leads alone. And they don't disappoint! I'm glad I don't find traces of Ji Chang Wook's characters from Healer here (maybe just a bit of Bongsookie) as this always makes me appreciate the actor more. (Plus he's in suit, all the time! Without Yoona!)
Nam Ji Hyun is also a delight to watch, she makes the sassy character lovable instead of irritating and I am so glad she's the one who got the job at the end. You can def feel the chemistry between them two and I can't wait for next episodes to see what's the storyline gonna be. The first 2 episodes (hours) have weird pacing, like the story for their first meet takes up 1 episode, but then the next episode fast-forward the whole trial. In saying that though, I won't complain because I realised this is only a set up for the rest of the series, and tbh, I don't enjoy seeing her being prosecuted and in jail too. I just remembered that this is the writer from IRY (favorite drama!) and that too takes few episodes to set in, so again, I am excited for the next weeks and I hope this drama will be my new crack.

Oh also, I watched 1/3 of Fabricated City before SP and I thought it's going to be a comedy action, boy how wrong was I. I quit after seeing Ji Chang Wook's character getting beaten for the nth time in prison. It's a bit confusing at first to see him right after in the drama, but he's not the one who's falsely accused and had to stay behind bars. Like I got scared for Nam Ji Hyun's character that she will get beaten in prison too, before I remembered...

And I'm doubly celebrating because in less than 24 hours I get to meet Kim Yoo Jung!!! ❤️❤️❤️ (Lantern wishes are real and they come true!)

I have a work course in the morning, korean lesson in the afternoon and then the fan meet at night! It's gonna be one heck of a Saturday... in the best way possible! 😝

I'm only watching Chicago Typewriter right now but it has been all kinds of awesome so I'm really a very happy camper.

Deciding if I should start Let's Eat or Tree with Deep Roots till 7 Day Queen is out.

A lot has been said about TVN's slump plus washed out colour palette but honestly I love the visuals in all the TVN dramas I've seen- Goblin, Reply 1988, Liar, and Chicago Typewriter (off the top of my head). I guess I prefer my dramas a little bit more introspective and mellow? Because I'm selfish and I hope they will never change. The bright loud colours in the My Sassy Girl promos are really not my thing. But different strokes for different folks.

Have an awesome weekend everyone!!! *blows kisses* (sorry I'm a bit high at the moment. Can you tell from all my exclamation !!! marks?? Hehe.😆)

Right, it's Six Flying Dragon. SFD and Tree are connected by the same writers.
Tree is actually based on a novel so take it as fiction. It's true that King Sejong created Hangul but that's not how it actually happen in history.
The more historical version is "The Great king Sejong."

I'd visit King Sejong's statue at Gwanghawmun Square. He is one of the most beloved and decorated king in the history of Korea.

Has anyone else had issues not getting notification of replies on posts here? People reply to me, but I never know. Is this a known bug?

My avatar wasn't showing either. So I uploaded a different one and it worked that time. Not sure what the issue was.
