15 things to do during Chuseok week while there are zero new dramas and zero drama news


 

  1. Memes. Meme everything that can be memed, and some that shouldn’t. Mock dramaland kisses. Meme Gong Yoo’s hair. Gif every puppy expression Seo In-gook has ever made. Tag them #lolbeans, even though hashtags don’t work on our site, because technical difficulties #wails. Send them to javabeans and ease her despair.
     
  2. Make lists. Watch lists, wish lists, backlog lists, grocery shopping lists. Listicles, which once seemed like harbinger of the imminent collapse of literacy and good taste, are now the premier information delivery vehicle.
     
  3. Create random fanwall games and follow along just to see how many other Beanies are as bored as you. Scavenger hunt. Word chains. Telephone.
  4.  

     

  5. Drama mashups. Create elaborate fan trailers of a hero from one drama falling in love with a heroine (…or hero) from another drama, a la Rooftop Fashion King, Baker King Cinderella, or Hunter over Flowers. Make the Goblin fall in love with Hong Seol. Coffee Prince versus Prosecutor Princess. Have Chun Song-yi fight the Mermaid for any and all the Lee Min-hos.
     
  6. Learn to wait. Patience is apparently a virtue.
     
  7. Although, apparently so is Beauty, and f*ck that shit.
     

  8.  

  9. Drink responsibly.
     
  10. Take your time watching the existing shows to fill the empty hours. I mean really take your time. Who says an hourlong show has to be over in 60 minutes? Not if you hit pause every time it gets slow, forget what you were watching, rewind to cover the same ground twice, maybe thrice if you’re really ambitious/motivated/mind-numbingly bored. Luckily, there are tons of boring shows on right now that are ideal for this exercise. #glasshalffull
     

  11.  

  12. Cosplay, obviously.
     
  13. Cosplay as a lesser-known drama character and see if anyone can tell who you are.
     

  14.  

  15. Bonus points if you manage not to get arrested.
     

  16.  

  17. Mentally recast every single show that has disappointed you, ever, with improved fantasy casts.
     
  18. Take a random drama scene and re-create it in real life. Don’t explain yourself, just throw yourself into the scene and see who gets it. In the real world, this is called performance art.
     

  19.  

  20. Now that you are an artist, rewrite that awful ending to that drama—that one that really sucked. You know which one. Send it in. We’ll call it There, I Fixed It.
     
  21. Take the best-made, most highly regarded drama you have seen and overanalyze its plot to nitpick its every minuscule flaw and shred its self-esteem. More than usual, I mean.

Haha, was wondering the same thing! There’s been a lot more of these kinds of meta-like posts here lately, and while I’m not complaining because they’re quite entertaining, I was taken aback because it was just not the usual DB posts I’m used to seeing. It’s a fun and welcomed change, though!

I always have such mixed feelings about OTPs dating in real life. On one hand - yay! - my ship has sailed, and it's practically a fanfic that wrote itself. Then the more pessimistic side of me remembers that dating news means potential break-up news, and I'd rather not recall what happened to the Weightlifting Fairy couple. My stand is that no news is good news... If you're going to take it away from me eventually, don't give it to me in the first place. TT

Wag-a-muffin, so good to see you again! It's been a Hund's age. I didn't realize you studied Deutsch, too! ;-)

Loved your alternate ending for CHEESE IN THE TRAP, even though I didn't watch it or the REPLY series.

But I did enjoy LINGERIE GIRLS' GENERATION. Very sweet. BTW, I posted as much of the non-Korean music as I could track down on my fan wall. I'm sure I missed at least one disco number and possibly some instrumentals. But most of them are there, tagged by episode. Old disk jockeys never die, we just miss our final segue...

Off to check out your comic strips.

Auf Wiedersehen!

German came in handy when I watched DER YALU FLIEßT / AMNOK RIVER FLOWS. ;-)

A touching and evocative account of the winds of change observed by the young Confucian scholar Li Mi-reuk (Maitreya). Born around the turn of the 20th Century, he came of age after the last Joseon king abdicated to the Emperor of Japan. His childhood in his hometown was spent with his beloved cousin.

Eventually he went to Seoul to study medicine, got caught up in the Korean independence movement, and managed to escape back home. His mother arranged to get him across the Yalu River into Manchuria, and from there he worked his way to Shanghai, and on to Europe. He landed at a Benedictine abbey in Bavaria, where he studied German, and at the behest of the abbott, studied medicine locally before moving on to Munich. There he continued his medical studies until he was informed that he was temperamentally unsuited to be a physician.

He became a professor of Oriental philosophy. At a book burning, he made the acquaintance of Prof. Kurt Huber, one of the leaders of the White Rose resistance movement. He related a story about a Chinese emperor who also held a book burning and killed the Confucian scholars. The empire lasted only 20 years versus the 1,000 years that Hitler was claiming for his administration.

One of Li Mi-reuk's students learned fluent Korean, and encouraged him to write his memoirs of his idyllic childhood near the banks of the Yalu River. It became so popular in Germany that excerpts were included in textbooks. Wow! I really wonder about this karmic connection between Germany and Korea. In a very touching scene, Dr. Li tells his student/muse Eva that, even if he were to return to his homeland, that place that he has written about no longer exists outside of his memory. Also touching were his translations of passages from Confucius and Korean poetry.

Sadly, Li Mi-reuk died of stomach cancer in 1950 before he could return to Korea. He lived to see his homeland freed of Japanese rule, but died before the Korean War broke out. I suspect it would have broken his heart.

The OST is beautiful, and even includes an Irish song that is apropos for the Korean expatriate who was exiled for much the same reasons as his Celtic counterparts -- if I understood the lyrics correctly. A recurring guitar instrumental is lovely.

I was left with a peculiar, peaceful feeling after watching this drama. I'd never heard of Li Mi-reuk before, and was intrigued to learn of his connection with Weimar Germany and the White
Rose. His translation of Lao Tse provide spiritual support for the resistance movement.

When I studied German in high school, our text books included the story of siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl, college students who were members of the White Rose. They paid with their lives for opposing the National Socialists.

Honestly--number 12 is the fanwall game that we've all been waiting for. I, for one, have some serious issues with the chick who played Jan Di.
And I'm just going to also suggest for the fanwall game that we've all been waiting for: the Beanie Drama that we obviously need to be writing and creating. There is a crap load of talented people who hang out on this site (and if this already happening and I'm just not cool enough to be in the know: I'll be over here, doing number 15 to TKA--again. And some more. Forever).

I love this idea! Maybe have it in the form of that childhood game whee were each wrote one line and passed it on?
Use a # to start a fresh story and each beanie comments with a new line or two to add to the drama ?! Or perhaps one para each since its a drama and not short story? What say?!

(I should really be working instead of getting so excited about more reasons to spend time on DB..! 😅)

I had the same idea, but you had it first, obviously! I put one out there on the open thread a few weeks back. We could write a script for that one; or come up with a new one. I’m too busy now but would offer up the idea for everyone to chime in on—-http://www.dramabeans.com/2017/09/open-thread-515/#comment-3035440.

I can give you a few more ideas. Strut down the street to the 38 police unit theme and give every one you meet finger hearts. Reenact a scene of an evil mother-in-law giving the envelope to unwanted girlfriend - play both both roles, feel richer irrationally.

First off my Addams family is coming out Brady Bunch Sunshine Day and my stealth is coming off with "boom!" and "pow!" and the occasional "oh yeah!" with a sassy wink. So this whole enterprise is basically shot. But this adorable old man gave me finger guns.

5

@isa,

LMAO! Finger guns FTW!

As proof of concept, prior to posting I practiced the double finger-snaps to ascertain that finger hearts could indeed naturally occur, and they did. But that was while sitting down in a chair in front of my laptop. Whether I am actually coordinated enough to walk, snap my fingers, and stealthily flash finger hearts without falling on my face has yet to be determined. ;-)

Just now I vocalized the ADDAMS FAMILY theme song and snapped my fingers, and Mr. PakalanaPikake looked up from his programming and identified it by the double finger-snaps. He added that the theme song from 77 SUNSET STRIP would sound similar.

Aha! Here's a clip of the original ADDAMS FAMILY intro.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFD7KGBUtKI

Alas, I could not see finger hearts forming, so I think it takes a tiny bit of intention -- but it's not a far stretch, literally or figuratively. ;-)

For science!

1

also, giving random kdrama quotes to complete strangers. Tell your professor to take care of her health or tell the bus driver ahjussi to "not go around looking so pretty!" Copy prof. Yoon in a public lavatory knock on the door of an occupied cabin and say How you finish is as important as how you start. if they get startled from it enough to leave their fingers between the door, tell them when your heart is not telling the truth, the pain will tell you the answer. Avoid the temptation to quote Shin Se Gi, though.

I cosplay everyday as a human being who seems to care about things other than drama. Should I let me inner Dramabeans freak flag fly irl?

#13 might explain much of the crazies around me. It turns out that I really do live among the creative type. In the end we are all collaborating to work on this live-action masterpiece which currently resembles a giant pile of stinky s*#t. Thanks Obama.

Thus, I would quote the last 3 words of #6 as my reaction to the last word of #7.
My advice? During Chuseok, do the first word with passion, rinse, lather, and repeat.

Nah, never mind. I already have succumbed to one hopeless addiction. Attending my daily meeting on this site is as much healing as I can muster the courage for. Thanks javabeans!

Korean Thanksgiving, and it's also during the week after the official holiday that broadcasters will choose to air tv specials, pilots of shows they hope will get picked up for full seasons at later dates, drama specials, etc., which also means that the regular programming of dramas and the already-existing shows may be pre-empted (postponed)... Which isn't going to help with @javabeans drama slump T.....T

1.) I was trying to find that one meme I made when I was watching Ruler, but I guess I deleted it. Idek what ep it was on, so I don’t think I’m gonna recreate it. It was a scene of Lee Sun gripping tightly to the queen’s hand, they were having a staring contest, and the meme read: “ARM WRESTLING FOR DEM POPPY PILLS.” #lolbeans
Lol @ the “hashtags don’t work” mention because I was gonna say the same. They’ll work one day, right?
Omg, is Gong Yoo’s hair memes AN ACTUAL THING? If so... *googles* Should’ve known. It’s just a JB thing. Ha.

3.) Omg, came across a K-drama bingo game made by @mary once. Haven’t gotten the chance to print out the bingo sheets, but I definitely wanna do it one day.

8.) I wanna do this with Age of Youth 2. I wanna drag it out forever so that it doesn’t end and the Belle Epoque girls never leave me, but I’m sure that’ll just make me feel worse because I wanna see what happens next! Moar moar moar! *chants* Season 3! Season 3! Season 3!

But honestly, I still have to finish my Moonlight Project (heyo, @sicarius), so I’ll be doing that.

13.) Lawl, tempted to do this...

Hahahahah.... I made one list soon after I told you I will! It was a list about variety shows and I think I had like 12 points but my mind shut down after that cuz too many shows were trying to get out and get on that list!
And now I don't know where I lost that page!
But I shall try again and give you proof! :P

And I'd recast Bae Suzy. Basically I'd recast Bae Suzy in every drama she's in. LOL

Which characters would you cut from a drama, as in both fathers and his insane mother in Something About Mary (and rewrite the script to make sense), the in-laws in Goong (selling insurance to the royal family??wtf).

Awww @javabeans i hope you're ok. I really wish you'd just take a leap of faith and start WYWS. Even of you're disappointed, you'll have something to rant about. I love reading whatever you have to say ❤

Personally, I'm going to dress my cat Gidget up in various outfits. The goal is to get to 20 different ones before she tries to kill me.

#4 I had an idea to gather Lee Jongsuk's characters in one premise (no romance though). I mentioned it in my comment on a db article. But I have no talent to make trailer of it so I just write up the story in my head.

I was in a drama slump and the two dramas I got hyped for the first time in 2 years were a total disappointment.

Seriously, the last dramas I finished were Mrs. Cop (the first one) and Hidden Identity.

For a while before resignation settled in and I finally accepted they were a dud, I'd felt like the slump was finally over but now I'm back to feeling I'll never get into another kdrama again.

Stopping by to say that this list made me laugh. XD

RE: Drama slump
I feel like after watching K-dramas during the entire 2016 and early 2017, I hit a drama slump too. Reading people's comments and how many people are in a similar state, I'm wondering if this is caused by the lack of original dramas or higher standards caused by some really high quality dramas last year?

In any case, Dramabeans has always been a source of entertainment for me. Thanks for all the hard work!

These lists on dramabeans are fun because at one point or another I have felt all these symptoms... But I hope JB is okay, and pulls through the tough moments!

When I feel that I am soo bored with dramaland, there's nothing new and interesting, and not even going back to J-dramas or T-dramas work, I end up hitting up my sure fire happy pill : Super Junior.

I have watched and rewatched oooold variety/reality shows like Explorers/Exploration of the Human Body with Suju or Full House with SuJu, Mystery 6 with SuJu , Super Junior Adonis Camp, Super Junior Idol World, Their iconic Intimate Note episode where the Kyu-Gura line was born, Strong Heart (because of the silly teuk/shindong/eunhyuk trio and of course the added bonus of puppy Seunggi!) and basically any and all shows with them on them, because their cute dumbness (in the shows) pulls me out of the slumps.

If I am honest I think I've memorized all their shows, and even when I've watched them over and over again, I still laugh and giggle with them even snort into my food because of their silliness even when I'm expecting it. They're are definitely my cure.

The only bad thing is that I end up missing the members that left even more... T_T

I would love to see Goblin falls for Hong Seol, I wonder how Jung will react? Although, the almighty Shin has the biggest chance, with his charm and basically everything he has. But Jung is weirdly strong in his determination.

When I watched fanvideo of this mashup, for some reason I cheered for Jung instead, despite how much I loved Shin. Despite how the drama ran at the latest episodes and turned it weird, for me Jung and Hong Seol are a perfect couple. I like their balance.
