I was following nothing to lose and this week turned out unintentionally funny:

Prof. Yoo: 'I sentence myself to death!!'

*BLINK* *PAUSE* *BLINK* *PAUSE*

Judge Sah: 'About that... I sorta switched out the bottle containing the poison... Soooo, you'll have to serve 15 years.. Toodles!'

Happy Friday beanies!

Nothing to Lose ended this week, putting me out of my misery. I am still rather annoyed! I wish I could take these actors and put them all in another legal drama: a better one! The producers should apologize to the cast, lol! The cast really were the saving grace.

I wonder if they signed on knowing it would turn out this badly-written, or if the interesting synopsis was what hooked them and then they had no choice as the writing went downhill.

I only watched the video clips to see Dongha, but after seeing the confession clip I decided to take a peek at the last two episodes. Could not believe that two years after confessing to each other, they worked their way all the up to holding hands! Good grief.

I just finished watching Rikuo( no sub, though). The drama is a
business/human drama, not a romance drama. The owner of tabiya( traditional socks manufacturer; a dying business, indeed) tries to reinvent the business by driving into sport shoes and encounters much problems while reinventing their business. The drama features Yakusho Koji, Yamazaki Kento and Takeuchi Ryuma(from Kahogo no Kahoko). I believe that Yamazaki and Takeuchi are considered new faces in J drama world. There are some very good actors who play side characters in the drama, You cannot help cheering them up and the backbone of the drama is deeply rooted in the Japanese business ethos. I highly recommend the drama. But I am not sure if the drama is subbed,,,
In my neighborhood, there is a very old tabiya and I often wonder how they can survive in future,, the only hope is that here in Kyoto where Tea ceremonies and Ikebana still thrive, the locals still like to wear kimono( thus they need to wear tabi) and the tradition would continue.

reply

Required fields are marked *

I haven't watched too many jdoramas, but here's a few I liked:

Dame na Watashi ni Koishite Kudasai: I thought this one was really cute! The heroine is very endearing and all the other characters are great as well. There aren't really any villains either so if you need a light feel good drama this one is great!

Suki na Hito ga Iru Koto: Another cute romance. The heroine might annoy you a little at the beginning (I didn't love her at first) but I promise she grows on you and you'll love her by the end.

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge: It's based on a manga so it's not super serious, but this is one of my favorites. It's a silly premise (four guys have to turn a girl who's super into horror into a 'lady' for free rent), but the romance has a lot of heart.

1
reply

Required fields are marked *

I confirm that Erased is excellent if you don't mind a mystery with a sci-fi twist and a large and big heart.
I loved the suspense surrounding the arrest of the serial killer but it's the the friendships, the main hero and his mother's relationship and also the acting, especially the children who won my heart. I can't say more i don't want to spoil anything.

Quartet: the last Yuji Sakamoto drama. The cast is a dream team, the characters endearing and quirky just enough, the writing perfect and the music brings a lot of soul to the ensemble.

Seriously, he looked GORGEOUS from head to toe this week. Not that he's not always good-looking but he was next level.

Also he was ridiculously cute while he was pouting and waiting for Ji-A to finish her shift. I think I paused and squealed about 4-5 times and I'm a 30 year old woman (he's the ultimate noona killer) He just looked like such an adorable puppy who wanted to be acknowledged by someone he loved. I would have broken down and told him the truth if I was Ji A, she's a strong gal.

Seriously this drama has made me really fall for YSH.
Can anyone recommend me some good YSH dramas and movies? Has he done many rom-coms before this one?

I believe this was his first rom-com role? But could be wrong.

I personally really enjoyed his role in Remember: War of the son, he's a lawyer in that one.

He was also good in the movie Seondal: The Man who sells river. He looks really cute in the Joeson period drama outfits. YSH was good looking in Ruler of the Mask and he carried the weight of the drama, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Hello Beanies!

I couldn't wait and HAD to come here to talk about it... Spoilers are ok here right?

Has anybody seen the kiss scene in E12 of Jugglers? BECAUSE BOY DID THINGS GET HOT.

I was so shocked because I feel like my mindset is still set in the times when kisses in K-dramas were just two rocks mashing their lips against each other and not moving. And whoa boy, the kiss scene happened so suddenly and it felt so intense that I almost couldn't bear to watch. They have some insane chemistry going on!

In other news, I feel like I might be going into a drama slump again, nooooo! I haven't been keeping up with INAR and BK, like I was for the past few weeks.

My glasses definitely fogged up, heh. I am SO GLAD because I was pretty hyped for a kiss scene (given that the people in this show are adult-age and have been in a few relationships) and the awkward kiss in episode 8 was.. well... no other way to describe it than awkward, I guess. 😂 But man, this one... It must have been really weird to film it in front of all the cameras though.

Hello Beanies!

I'm on episode 4 of Just Between Lovers now, but although I like Kangdoo and Moonsoo I can't really connect with anyone. I also tried the first episode of I'm Not A Robot, which seemed more light and cute, but...apparently I haven't thought much of it. I'll try again this weekend probably. I'm very picky with shows, and I really miss that feeling I got when I first finished BTLIOF's first episode. <3

Two days ago I joined two friends in a crossfit training gym thing, mainly because I need to force my body to do something besides sitting all day. I have zero stamina. It was my first time so they had me do squats and squats with jumps and more squats with jumps AND a platform, jfc. I managed to walk down the stairs without help afterward. Then later I put ice, oil, salonpas all over. And today I walk like a penguin, lol. Maybe I should have just convinced my friends to go jogging instead. HAHA. Anyway, the pain is, well, painful but I'm actually happy I did it. Hopefully I can get back on track by Monday for round two!

when you make your muscles to work so hard try to really stretch them after the exercise for about half an hour and take a hot shower with a light massage and drink magnesium and calcium supplements with vitamin C and B6, B12. The second day should be really hard, but don't give up and do it every 2 days, your muscles will get adapted to it. Fighting ;-)

Banila co's Clean It Zero cleanser is a gift from the gods. It melts all your makeup off your face and leaves your skin soft. If you have acne problems (or just even the occasional bump) cosrx pimple patches are amazing. Mask-wise I'm in love with The Saem's o2 black pearl bubble mask.

Here to send my accolades on Cosrx as well. The pimple patches work like a charm. And not just on pimples. I get horrible mosquito bites and have scars from having on self control and scratching them and these heal those as well. Another friend of mine just recommended it. I also use their hyaluronic essence and just ordered their snail essence as well. I’m on the Cosrx bandwagon. Although Dramabeans’ site is down, their partner website to order things is still up. https://beautytap.com/

The phone is too uncomfortable to write on.
Dramas: Prison Playbook - on ep 12, INAR - ep 21, a bit behind on Two Cops cause I can't fit it in, watched some Just Between Lovers, but it's not very intetesting and way too mopey. Jugglers - can't predict what's next, curious to see how everyone deals with such complicated matter. Especially what kind of attitude will Yul adopt after finding out Wangbi is older than him. So this is what the juggling metaphore meant? How are they going to keep all their balls in the air now without dropping any?

Oh yeah - Hwayugi. It's a conflicting watch. I am in for the zombie. The whole cow, pig, peacock act, well, somehow embarrassing? A little campy? But the hidden clues have piqued my interest. That mushroom cloud? If the childish mythology hides clever clues to our real world then I am in. Just hope they skip unecessary scenes or gags chopping the flow right now.
Prison Playbook is my current favorite, so funny, weird, real, really like the "kindergarteners" Captain Yoo & Looney. They are all so crazy and cute. What am I even saying though? This PD can create a believable world so easily.

Hi Everyone!

As always, I hope all the Beanies are doing well today! ..... It's one of those busy days so I have to post and run off. I'll be back later to read all of your great posts.

This week:

Jugglers - I can continue to count on this to make me laugh! Fun to watch. I'm an episode behind though.

Black Knight - Another one I'm an episode behind on. That's ok though. I still like all the unexpected (and sometimes funny) moments in this drama that presents itself as super serious.

Just Between Lovers - Oh so good. I have to respectfully say, I haven't always been a fan of veteran actress Na Moon-hee. However, she is absolutely perfect as Granny in this drama. We're headed towards inevitable heartbreak with her, I think, but it's been an absolute treat to watch her in this role.

Two Cops - So I decided to give this a chance and I watched episode 1. For whatever reason, it didn't click with me so I'm afraid I won't be continuing this one. Perhaps another time.

That's all for now. Take care everyone and have a great Friday!

I love veteran actors to pieces too. There is just something about their acting that is so believable after years of refining their skills.
Na Moon-hee can command box-office hits even at her current age.
"Miss Granny" with Shim Eun-kyung was fantastic hit for a comedy drama genre with 2 female leads, a veteran and a former child actor.

I hope to see more young and old actresses with that much influence in films.

I'm watching Money Flower and Hwaguyi also but I'm still enjoying this a lot. I didn't watch the first one but seeing it was actually such a hit motivated me to start this one. And I don't regret it. I am loving it so far. It has everything that I like: political intrigues done well with a little touch of romance. I think it has the right dose of everything. I may want to see more romance sometimes especially between the youngest but it's not a problem so far.

Still lying face down thinking about INAR but not in a 'can't contain my excitement for the next week' way as usual but rather like 'waiting for someone to kill me'. So there's that. For the past three weeks we've had only one episode that didn't make me sad (but content! I love angst in dramas!) so it's getting a little bit draining emotionally. I still think the overall mood and tempo is well-balanced, I just hoped the reveal wouldn't have left me feeling so desolate, lol
Other than that I've been watching W and it's worse than I remembered it being, but there are still a lot of wonderful moments. Han Hyo‑joo owns me.

Hello Beanies!

INAR - It had cute eps this week, I'm more than ready for MK to deal with the real Jia, took him long enough, don't care about the company power struggle which is boring as always.

Prison Playbook - I'm still on ep 8 but I loved the early eps more. I think the last have been a little too long, I'm not interested in Je Huyk story anymore, don't care about his past romance, and wish he would have retired, seems unreal that he will keep playing. I still like the other characters and mood, one thing I still thin strange is JunHo, it's like he was always a good friend to Je Huyk instead of someone that got distant. There is some awkwardness missing in their relationship.

HWAYUGI - So much happens in this show each ep, it would be better if they had more time to deal with things one step at a time. There is so much I feel people don't have so much time to feel close to characters. The casting is perfect though, the jokes are good, I don't even care if it's cheesy, I just wanted something more simple like Master's Sun.

OT week 49! I just saw the cutest three patients, all in their 60’s, and the last one was Korean! I had to talk about kdramas of course, which she watches! She tried to guess my nationality, which no one (not even people of my own nationality) gets right. She thought I was Chinese and because I didn’t put any make-up on today except Etude House’s BB cream (which is amazing, BTW), also thought I was younger than her 35 year old daughter! So, she’s my favorite patient today! Otherwise, we’re going on an overnight trip with a couple other couples to celebrate some milestones tonight. Kids will be staying at home with my cousin. It’s going to be EPIC! No, really, I work with some amazing people who I am lucky enough to call my friends and we not only work hard, but we play hard as well! So, here’s to playing hard tonight! I also had a fun singing with a “garage band” (which I haven’t done in 20 years) last weekend. I might be a regular. A friend just got a stand-up bass and had to show it off. Music is probably what keeps me young.

We watched “The Thieves” (2012) which was a kmovie with everyone and their dog, and apparently the 5th highest grossing movie ever in Korea. Him Hye Soo, Jun Ji Hyun, Kim Yoon-seok, Kim Hae Sook, Lee Jung Jea, Kim Kang Woo and Kim Soo Huyn to name a few. My neighbor’s son just returned from Macau and China, and had been sending us pictures of Macau, which is where this movie is originally set, and it was pretty cool seeing the sights in this. It was good, but there was a part where we were worried we would be seeing more than we bargained for, and my husband said to me if we were going to see two over-the-hill people doing it, we’d have to turn it off! It was pretty funny.

Otherwise, we are still watching “20th Century Boy and Girl” and I’m really enjoying this. It’s adorable. I’m in love with Lee Sang Woo’s voice. He’s a nice baritone when he speaks that resonates and I’m a sucker for that. Otherwise, I’m sure all Korean writers went to Disney movie school because someone’s parent must die when they are young. (I saw Bambi when I was four and have never recovered.)
You know, we tried to watch “Just Between Lovers,” but my daughter was watching it with us and we couldn’t get past the first episode where the building starts falling and you know, that’s kind of traumatic for a 9-year-old who is about to go to bed, who still comes into my room at night because of “bad dreams.” So, this will go on the “to watch when the kids go to bed” list. I think I will like it though. Again, what is it with tragedy setting up every kdrama premise?
And while watching “20th Century…” which is about an actress who meets her idol crush after 20 years and also her real crush/boyfriend after 20 years, setting up their love triangle.

Hubby: *laughing* I sure did! (Note: Hubby never thinks I’m funny!)

Viewership ratings for this drama has exceeded 10%. It was 10.142% and 10.615% for episode 13 & 14 respectively. It has been gradually increasing since episode 3.

On a side note, it even beats other three dramas airing around the same time.

It is now the 4th highest rated tvN drama (behind Goblin, Reply 1988 and Signal). Can it surpass Signal (12.544%) during final two episodes? Let's wait and see.

Morning all! I'm so excited to see Lee Sang-yoon is in a new drama. He was my first ever drama crush from my first ever drama Angel Eyes. Gosh I cried so much watching that drama. He is sooo swoony. I love that he's paired with Lee Sung-kyung whom I loved in Weightlifting Fairy. Fun to come! I'm watching Bad Guys and I really love the chemistry between the bad guys. Ma Dong Seok is my fave, but I really love Park Hae Jin (I'm very shallow). I keep telling myself he's a serial killer, but maybe he's not? Oh dramas.

Does anybody know what the relationship between the club owner and kang Doo and granny is??

Kang-doo borrowed money from Halmeoni when he was a teenager. She liked his spunk and took him in basically. Mary (the club owner) sends her girls to Halmeoni but I don't know how they initially met. I'm thinking Halmeoni probably introduced KD and Mary to each other.

Mary mentioned how she had been picking KD up off the streets for 10 years. She called him her life saver this week, so I wonder if he fought with someone hassling her 10 years ago and that’s why she has such a soft spot for him and gives him odd jobs and such.

When Director Jeong asked Mary why she’s protecting Kang-doo, her answer was “because he saved me.” She did not specifically said how he saved her but she’s a club owner so maybe Kang-doo saved her from a pervert customer?

Greetings!

Master in the House (aka All the Butlers) is hysterical. Like many k-reality shows the format is loose, but the guys with Master #1 Jeon In Kwon is a blast. Gosh, the poor guys are starving to death on rice crust. (Why didn’t they grab something substantial to eat at the café?) Se-hyung is kind of out of control as usual and Seung-gi is tripping all over himself to rein him in to no avail. Sung-jae’s crush bromance with Seung-gi is all over the screen adorable. Sung-jae delivers a serious forehead flick punishment, ouch! And entertainment dark horse Lee Sang-yoon is killing it. Love this show!

Jugglers: When Yoon-Yi’s mother sighed after finding out about the fire and his uncle and wished Chi-Won didn’t have so much history, I guess that could mean she wishes he didn’t have so much baggage. But it feels like more than that, as if bad/difficult experiences in Korea are ominous black clouds that can’t be shaken and mothers especially don’t want their daughters or sons to be affected by taking up with a “black cloud person.” But – and I hope I’m right about this – it doesn’t seem like Chi-Won is going to do the usual thing and become a bad person to Yoon-Yi to make her hate him. I hope that he listens to his heart and Yoon-Yi’s feelings for him and ignores her mother’s talk with him (fingers crossed).

Just Between Lovers: I cried so hard when Gang Doo and grandma talked and then again at the hospital when grandma was surrounded by people and laughing and Gang Doo recalled his sarcastic question asking what’s the point of life? Gah, then the nosebleed – so whose sick, everyone?? Joo Won is just like Pillar in FBRS, I mean, it’s totally the same personality!

Hoping to find and watch the movie 1987.

I’m Not a Robot: Min-Kyu, cute, cuter, cutest! ♥

Society Game 2 episodes are finally subbed (1-4 so far). Love MJ and Julian, not loving Lee Chun-soo.

Anyone watching (American) This Is Us? I love this show!

Have a great weekend!

Hi, owl! About the "dark cloud" thing, I don't think the mom is completely wrong. Peoples ' baggage shows in their self-conduct. You are watching JBL töö, so there, an ecample. But I don't think the past is the main concern in Jugglers now. The present is.

Hi y'all! I just finished watching Hwayugi eps 3 and 4 and while I enjoyed it, I feel like I enjoy JB and GF's recaps more?

Oh Yeon-seo is not bad but I feel like she's stiff and all. I don't know if it's with the character of what. I enjoy the jokes and all, especially Oh-gong contradicts himself, what with both hating and loving Seon-mi. Hahaha! However, while I think Hwayugi is pretty entertaining, I'm not attached to the show.

My attachment belongs to Prison Playbook because HOLY WOW this show has such a tight hold on me. I'm already getting sad that it's gonna end soon because nooooooooo, I need more time with them!

So far, I'm not going to urge you to see the show because the recaps are so good! The essence and emotions (of swoon and amusement) are so distilled in the recaps that you're really not missing anything out.

It's a shame, cause Oh Yeon-seo can be a riot, and her character hasn't been able to add much to the comedy. She can be as quirky and weird as the other characters are being. I wish they'd give her more to work with.

This is the first role I'm seeing her in and I've heard about how committed she is when it comes to comedy so it's particularly disappointing that I can't see her comedic chops because this project ain't giving her a chance to bring on the comedy. Also, I don't know if the monk character in the original work is pretty boring but that's how Samjang comes across. I get that there should be someone who is NOT a riot to center the show and control all of these monsters/deity but yeah.

I'm not putting this against OYS though so maybe I should check out her other projects.

I couldn't bring myself to watch My Sassy Girl, but I heard the same critique. I want to blame that on the directing or writing...can I? >D

I loved her in Shine or Go Crazy. People didn't seem to like that drama much, but I really liked it. She kept right up with Jang Hyuk, who is as kooky as they get. She really stood out to me--she was feisty and funny and I wish she was more like that character in this drama.

The thing is, I can IMAGINE her being feisty and funny as Samjang/Seon-mi because the kid version of the role had that sass/smarts and spark to her. I guess life has worn her down, with her grandma dying too. I hope that side comes out though!

Is something going on with the shop? The "shop" button disappeared from the top row a while ago, at least on my system.
Or is it just something about my browser or account or something?
Anyway, I can try to sneak in by clicking the shopping cart icon and then on the "Return to Shop" button, but then it doesn't show anything for sale.

For that matter, I'd rather support Dramabeans by just sending them money. The shop doesn't actually have much I need, most of what I could spend there probably goes to manufacturers & shipping costs, not DB (I guess?)
For the amount of time I spend here, a voluntary gift/contribution of about the amount other sites charge for subscriptions would be an amazingly good deal.

happy friday everyone!

God bless to Mary for fixing the site within 3 hours. i was in the middle of posting prison playbook recap on my fanwall and prepping dinner for my dad(mom has to go to police station for small car accident this morning) and come back after dinner to see DB is out cold.

another week of preparing healthy food with mom for my dad, who is down with heart attack last two weeks. the doctor, the family doctor and the traditional Tabib said, no chicken, no nuts related food, no coffee or tea, not even his favorite teh tarik or roti canai anymore. only fish and milk for him. Poor Dad. but its 50% our fault for slacking with his diet for the last 15 years after his bypass. another 50% is we unable to control what he or what he DID not eat when he went to office. sometimes he eat lunch, sometimes he did not. much to our irritation.

we are out of idea to cook for him right now. soup, curry, baked,steam all we have done for the past 2 weeks. any idea from Beanies?

Sashimi.

Hahaha, I'm just kidding. Have you tried Aluminium-foil bake? Put a fish on an aluminium foil, pour olive oil over it along with whatever herbs and spices you like. Seal the foil with the fish in it and leave to bake.

You can try a bouillabaisse, always my favourite fish stew. And you know, after Indian you can go Japanese, Korean, Middle East, German, French, Italian, Russian, Mexican, American... etc etc. There are many ways to stew fish. Many ways to prepare milk. (Look at the Mongols!)

fish stew, huh? thanks!
its a problem he cant eat a lot of things. no potatoes, no bean sprout, no soy milk too. all of those pro people said fish, milk(specialized milk like Anlene and Omega Plus) and a lot of veggie. but dad is anti veggie, so it hard to make it more variety to him.

My god. Chop them veggies up real small and stuff them in dumplings. You may make fish dumplings! Get him to make it himself too to stave the boredom away. And then you can buy those fish balls with veggie bits in them.

Ah, and when you're done, you can stuff him with this spicy Korean fish dish called Kalchi Jorim: http://seonkyounglongest.com/kalchi-jorim-korean-style-braised-silver-hairtail/

Hey, they said chilli's good for lowering cholesterol! There are lots of spicy korean fish dishes to try! And since we're on a korean drama website, you can go all korean on him because Korea is synonymous with chilli. Ah, Haemul Jeon...

Hope your dad is recovering well. God bless you and your mom for taking care of him! Look at Mediterranean cooking for fish, and Asian fish and chicken dishes as well. We have this sweet, carmelized fish dish which is like crack, I swear. It’s made on a clay pot. I bet if you look up carmelized clay pot fish you’ll find it. Eat it with rice and steamed Chinese broccoli and that’s one of my favorite meals.

i cant say he's recovering well as his heart got 3 part which is blocked. one is 100% blocked, while the rest is still manageable. Docs said another bypass is too risky for his age. he already at the end of his 2 weeks sick leave and he's already bored to death and planning to go to work this monday, even though mom asked him to stay home for another month or two.

no chicken for him sadly. not even a healthy chicken soup. :(

I forgot about the no chicken. Can he eat soy? Like Tofu? There's a great Tofu/kimchi soup (probably like hangover soup) my husband makes, but spices probably are out for your dad too. It's so flavorful--you have to have or make kimchi which is another step. He uses a vegetable broth as the base and a Korean spice packet that we pick up from the Korean grocer. The tofu and spice packet sometimes comes together as well. Good luck!

I can only suggest what I remember of my grandfather's diet after his heart attack. He used to have some oats for breakfast - by oats I mean an Indian preparation called 'dalia' (this recipe seems okay - and there are many variations with water, without sugar & with vegetables: http://www.northindiancooking.com/sweet-dalia.html)

Is your father allowed to have fruits?

:-) I'm not a vegetarian because I eat fish, but you can make so many beautiful kinds of food, my suggestions:
* spinach salad with roasted carrots and broccoli and feta
* spinach japanese style omelet
* braised cabbage gnocchi
* spinach lasagne or cannelloni
* roasted carrot and parsnip soup with herbes de provence
* cabbage, carrot and broccoli minestrone soup
* spinach with onions, garlic, white wine and cream and mashed potatoes
etc... if you need whole recipes I can write you them, they're very simple, but delicious

@prisonplaybook you're welcome

this one is very savoury and "made me" ;-) , when I was 16 to stop eating meat (20 years now):
*oat flakes pancakes served with beetroot and rice (you can use black rice and roasted beetroot - roasted beetroot is like sweet potato)

-put oat flakes in a bowl, add salt and pour the boiling water over them, that they are soaked but don't swim in it, mix it
- after like 10 min add beaten eggs (1 or 2 eggs for little quantities), little bit of soya milk ( not necessary), 1 or two tea spoons of marjoram (it's oregano familly, but much more aromatic), black pepper (optional), pressed garlic (how much you like) and 1 big chopped onion (finely)
- mix well and do little pen cakes in a sauce pan using canola or colza oil (other oils are not suited for high temperatures)
- serve them hot or cold, they are very good snack for a lunch box

fish cakes with grated vegetables (carrot, turnip) inside? also, can he eat legume? I think it should be ok to make broad bean + cauliflower pureé. Just two components but very tasty. even non-vegetable lovers like it. My granny is 94 and it is a mess what to cook for her, one day she likes something, the other day she flushes it from the toilet.
are tomatoes ok? then, grilled sardines with tomato sauce.
or some other small fish.
one thing my granny will always eat is sweet potato + butternut squash cream soup.
