Happy Friday, beanies!! Hope you'll are having a awesome weekend.
I'm enjoying Thirty but seventeen when the world seems so serious and full Of upside down this drama is so funny, innocent, naive, Refreshing drama to lighten up my head. This makes me smile and exercise some muscles in my face because of those teen ages wholesomeness.
I'm enjoying My ID is Gangnam beauty too. I am proud of Mi Rae, I love how she stood her ground with the bully. I also love how her best friend rolled up on the bully like she was ready to handle business. There's no end to Soo-ah's nastiness. Eveytime she starts lying I want to make her stop. My eye muscles are tired from frequent eye rolling.

Hi Everyone! ...... I hope you are all doing well today!

This week:

Thirty But Seventeen - I'm still in the beginning episodes and everyone is getting used to each other. If Seo-ri's situation happened to anyone in real life, I can only imagine how disorienting and surreal the whole situation would be.

Mr. Sunshine - Wan-ik .... someone, anyone, please rid the world of this person ..... hurry! And that preview ---- oh no!

Your Honor - So I'm suddenly unsure about this one. I've never said this before about Yoon Si-yoon, but I'm not really liking the overacting on his part.

Let Me Introduce Her - So I decided to check this out with the intention of only watching the first episode. I was really curious how they would explain why a person who underwent facial reconstruction surgery ended up with amnesia. Three episodes later, I still don't know why because it was never explained. In the meantime, gangsters are looking high and low for the person who now has a new face and amnesia, the patient now lives with her plastic surgeon, he's getting interested and oh yeah, she may be married. Yeah, it's a weekend drama. *laughing*

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

haha I haven't seen Let Me Introduce Her, but your description reminded me of the amnesia trope (not to mention a new face :)) that has been prevalent in kdramas past. It's been a while, right?

I have to reluctantly agree about Your Honor. I have been supporting YSY's overacting as I think he does it well, but he seems to be over-overacting at times. Funny the PD wouldn't rein it in a bit, just a bit. Still, I'm going to hang on and give the bigger story a chance.

Have a great weekend!

I'm ready for anything to happen on Let Me Introduce Her. Heh! I think it may be one of those dramas where nothing can be considered out of the question.

Regarding Your Honor, your description is spot on! It is over-overacting! .... and it's unfortunate because the story seems to be pretty good. The over-overacting just seems so distracting because no one else is doing it, just him.

Have a great weekend also!

Agreed on Your Honor. Lately it seems like over acting has become more of a thing in k-dramas. I guess it is supposed to be funny, but I find it kind of dumb because nobody real would actually act that way.

Hellooo!! How is everyone? School's finally slowing down with assessments so I have room for some more dramas 😁. I've been really enjoying My ID is Gangnam Beauty. Even though all the cringe scenes from every romantic are in this drama, I can't help but really ship our main characters! I am also watching My House Helper and Mr. Sunshine. Does anyone have any dramas that they are really loving at the moment that they mind sharing. There are just too many to choose from!

30 but 17 has finally found its groove in my opinion. I didn't like the premise initially, but I didn't want to drop another YSJ drama. I really liked him in duel but unfortunately had to drop temperature of love. So I'm glad that I stuck with it.

great... you decided to stick with it...
i dint even like the setup initially when DB article came about a girl in coma for 13 years then acting as 17 years old.... but still gave it a try just for YSJ and i am so glad i did.

As we discussed on whatsapp... it has all cliche tropes, usual kdrama plots but everything is done so well and beautifully that you rarely find those things annoying while watching the episodes...

I found Oh Jak Doo a bit draggy; one of those dramas that hook you with a good beginning and then lose steam. Not one I would recommend after having watched it. Perhaps it wasn't great for marathoning...

Really enjoying Life at the moment. I hate it when there are more than one good shows in a timeslot. I had to sacrifice Let's eat 3 this week for Life.

Well these two are the only shows that genuinely have my interest. I'll keep checking Mr. Sunshine for the cinematography maybe. The show isn't bad but I'm not impatient neither curious.
Won jin ah is slowly becoming my favorite 20sth actress. I want this writer to write a romance next because she writes subtle romances amazingly and probably cast Jang ki yong and Won jin ah.

Re Familiar Wife, I wrote this in a comment already but here's what I think:

I’m not very keen on a love triangle (if that's where it's going) between Original Wife, Present Wife & Man. What really irks me is that so far all the decision making power lies with Ji Sung’s character. The story seems to only be asking for his character growth. It makes the Show quite boring to me. It may change later of course, and when it does – I might pick it up again if I like the sound of it.

I dropped Familiar Wife without even finishing the first episode... I dunno, I actively disliked the male lead and found I couldn't care less about him. I know he's supposed to go through a transformation, but... I had a feeling I wouldn't have the patience for that.

So... I'm finally out of the silent readers and back commenting here again. Ever since Because This is My First Life ended, I was in a kdrama slump. I guess I was too disappointed in the ending (after what was a wonderful drama) and just dropped kdramas altogether :D
Which gave me time to really work on myself, on my physical and mental health. And, surprisingly, once I started feeling better I picked up kdramas again! After a couple of duds (e.g. About Time & The Undateables and, to an extent, Secretary Kim) I'm now really happy I started watching 30 but 17. Man, this little bundle of giddiness is just what I need! Also, in a turn of events I did not expect, I'm also kinda watching Man to Man, per my husband's request. I have no idea what to expect from it, but so far I like the romantic scenes between both male leads.

My annoyance with VIKI continues unabated and I have extended my (pointless and ineffectual) one-woman protest boycotting them by not watching them.

It started with a one-day boycott when they removed my happy drama Thirty But Seventeen overnight. After showing 12 episodes, they lost the license in the middle of the season. It must have happened quickly because they left the banner up ...

I was so annoyed by that banner, telling you that, viewer, you want to watch Thirty but Seventeen - yes, I know that viki: I want to but you WON'T LET ME. I really wanted them to take that banner down.

Well, I got what I wanted, they replaced that banner. Only they replaced it with Lovely Horribly. Now I'm no longer slightly peeved with VIKI, no, I'm full-scale pissed off. (If you're interested in why I hate having this shoved in my face every time I open VIKI, have a look at the comment section here http://www.dramabeans.com/2018/08/premiere-watch-lovely-horribly/)

That meant that I decided to extend my one-day boycott to a full week. The result is that I have been mainly watching stuff on Netflix.

The upside of this was that I watched an interesting jdrama called Switched which was a lot better than I expected. It's short and it's got both an interesting premise and an interesting message. Basically, the popular pretty girl gets her body stolen when the class outcasts figures out how to switch lives. Only changing the way you look doesn't necessarily change the way you are...

Oh, the problems with Viki... I was also disappointed when they lost 30 but 17.

And re Switched – I saw the trailer but it didn't lure me in. I'm really cautious with Japanese shows although I used to watch quite a lot of them a few years ago.

I was actually going to register on Viki that very day! ^^; I'd just learnt that we actually do have legal access in my country. And right then, you & @kdramaswimmer and others complained about them taking down 30B17 & subsequently putting up Lovely Horribly.

Well, I still plan to register/subscribe since I'd like to watch dramas legally, but let's just say I'm supporting you in your one-woman protest until I do.

I actually did try, and as much as I don't want to pass judgment on the actor, I can't help but question the character - as a direct result of this casting. The script does seem to be so good -I loved W: Two Worlds & the few similar shows - but I was incapable of enjoying the Show. Park Shi Hoo is a Schroedinger's rapist in my mind now - and like most women, I respond with a 'better safe than sorry' approach even when it comes to watching the drama.

Life On Mars - Second OT Review - Comparison of the BV (BBC Version (2006-2007)) with the KV (Kdrama Version (2018))

Hi again @bugsbunny @linda-palapala @thequiet1 @newstory and everyone,
I only managed to watch a few more episodes this week, and have more to go before the finale. I still find that what I felt before holds true. Both the BV and the KV are worth the watch. I will say however that the BV is harder to watch. It could be because it was produced in 2006-2007 and was depicting the true state of 1973, but the lack of respect for people generally and for their rights was glaring and lasted longer in the series. Also troubling was the lack of knowledge or care for victims in terms of help for post traumatic stress.

SPOILERS
SPOILERS

On the whole I found the KV much 'sweeter' in tone and mood, warmer and more uplifting and more hopeful from earlier on in the series. In the BV, I felt that Sam gained a yard, but then lost a mile in the gaining of the understanding and respect of his workmates. It was frustrating. The tone, I felt, up to the point I watched, was more cynical.

I liked that in the KV, Tae Joo had (more) opportunities to demonstrate his abilities, that he had conversations with his younger self and had more occasions to meet with his parents. Of course I've yet to watch until the end to see whether Sam has other chances to change his own 'fate'.

8

Required fields are marked *

Sadly I felt that in the BV, Sam was doing more sleuthing on his own, whereas in the KV, there was more getting back together with at least one other or the team, before long. I missed the camaraderie that the KV had. That he managed to have Annie on his side seemed like much more of a triumph, because the rest of the team was just not with him, and he was practically pulling out his hair in despair. Tae Joo appeared more stoic by comparison.

In the KV, there was more evidence of team work and bonding. Maybe it is also a cultural thing? In Britain with a flatter hierarchical structure that did not require the lower ranks to give much show of respect towards Sam, they appeared more downright rude, and even the character of Chris Skelton (Nam Shik's counterpart) was not on Sam's side.

The scary 'TV girl' was at times an embodiment of his self-doubt, and taunting him, which did not help his self confidence at all. I did not really understand why there had to be this 'scare' element in the show since the stress of trying to fit in, to make himself understood, to get back to his 'time' were already so ... welll ... STRESSFUL.

I agree with reviews that with the overall arc of hunting down the manicure murderer, the KV flowed better, projected a clearer sense of purpose for the series, and gave viewers a great degree of satisfaction in the resolution of that serial murder crime. Until I come to the end, I can't say if overall the degree of satisfaction will be more or less. However the inclusion of manicure murders even in 1988, gave the KV the added element of mystery or raised the tantalising question: did the murderer time travel and therefore did that mean that Tae Joo also time travelled? This sparked off more discussion and fun confusion (for us!) on top of the question of whether Tae Joo was alive or in a coma. This was not so evident with the BV.

reply

Required fields are marked *

In the KV, together with the added interest of manicure murders taking place in 1988, the incorporation of Na Young into the murder arc as almost victim or as possible victim in the white dress, amped up the suspense and brought the worry and fear for Na Young close to viewers, in a way that the BV run-through-the-woods scene failed to do. However, looking again at BV Ep 1, the scene of the walk in the woods was already introduced. I have to watch to find out if more comes of it, as at this stage, it has not amounted to much!! Or maybe someone who's watched the BV can tell me?

I guess even now, I already know that I have a warmer feeling towards the KV, but I'll try to watch the BV to the end to see if any of my 'feelings' change. I do however like the pop music of the past which brings more nostalgia into my cut and dried life. 😋 😆

i must admit i watched LoM for JKH more than anything:) that's how much i like him as an actor, i would try to watch atleast 1-2 episodes, if he's in it.

but it's good to know that they made KV different enough (softer lead & gang, as you've mentioned) while following the narrative of the BV. again, appreciate the review!

Hello beanies! Happy Friday!
Not for me though. I just lost my job yesterday. So I am in a state of I don't know what.
Sometimes I think it was for the best because I was not getting the tasks I was hoping I would. Then again, it really hurts. I have lost my professional identity within a matter of hours.
The job was fun for the first six months then it went downhill. Now, it has been a year.
Apparently I was just listless in the house, so my mom told me to talk to other people and snap out of it.
Soooo, HERE I AM!
Thanks to dramabeans for letting me vent it out. (I am trying my best to not to get into a state of depression)

Good gosh. I'm so sorry to read this. Even if one doesn't like the job, losing it isn't much consolation. I wish things had worked out in a way that allowed you time to find a new one before you no longer have to go, but even if they didn't, it's quite okay! In the end it's "Good riddance!" anyway! Something better will come along. Hope it doesn't take too long.

Losing your professional identity sucks! But so glad you have a mom that keeps your personal identity in check! That’s more important anyway. Try not to be defined by your job.

Watching drama is great to relieve stress but in your situation it's better to limit yourself.
Listening to podcasts or reading books can be a better choice for entertainment. Also don't forget to work out, even if you don't like it. Exercise will keep you off from the risk of depression.
I second Greenfields, I believe you'll get something better in the future. Good luck!

I don't know how to give comforting words, but in the meantime, rest properly, do whatever you want to do that you couldn't before because of that job, or perhaps learn/ develop new hobby/ skills.

I hope you'll be okay soon. It takes time but everything's gonna be fine. 💐

Hang in there @ilovecoffee&rain
You're not alone, there's us with all our ups and downs in work. Sometimes I wonder if I should just stop working.

While it helps to keep talking and letting out the stress, do so without letting the emotion get the better of you. There's this human thing where re-living an unhappy event by talking about it, can actually worsen the pain or heighten the anger/resentment. 😐 All the best and may this be (in the words of Seo Ri of 30 But 17 / Still 17) merely an intermission before you encounter your next and even better job!

I am sorry to read about this, and I really hope you find a better job soon! I agree with what most beanies said, now is the time to do whatever you can’t do while working. I also strongly agree with what Ally said about personal identity being more important.

I personally struggled with my value in this world as an unemployed person for a while, and it was after I took a break from job hunting to spend more time on the people and things I loved and really mattered that I rediscovered and learnt to value my personal identity. My professional identity was quick to follow, but I had to feel all right as a person first.

At last I also agree with your mom. You have every right to feel hurt about this, but do not become listless or let it bring you down. There is much more to life than a job. It is a mantra that you will have to repeat to yourself many times, but it really is true.

It is an awful feeling - but in the end, you will rise and grow from this experience. And there will be a better job for you!

OT week 79! After finally figuring out what has been wrong with me (ragweed allergies), I’m finally feeling like myself again in the latter week. I had initially thought it was because I had so much fun last weekend and was recovering from that. So we were going to watch Baumdog Revenge Club during my minivacay last weekend, but couldn’t get it to cast onto the TV in the house we were staying, and apparently no one wanted to watch it on my laptop. I may have been slightly inebriated to be of any use figuring it all out. I did help cook dinner though. I should cook drunk more often. It was delicious! But electronic devices while intoxicated are not my thing. Actually, electronic devices while totally alert are not by thing either.

Which is why I’m always so happy when I can watch kdramas on my TV without having to do anything to get it there. Turn on TV, click on Netflix, done. Turn on TV, click on VIKI, done. Turn on TV, click on DF, done. Which is why I’m commiserating with @cloggie about VIKI losing the rights to 30 but 17. Because now, I have to find it elsewhere and cast it onto my television. Which is an extra 5 steps for me, and it doesn’t work nearly as seamlessly. I’m still loving this show though. Too much cute, great acting, lovely characters. I kind of think we don’t need a villain in this one. The show is too good to have one.

Then there’s Let’s Eat 3. I still really like this too! I’m seeing that the story is not really revolving around Dae Young anymore, but his “love interest” which it’s always been that way, but for some reason, I like it better this time around. Jin-woo’s relationship with her mother is so sweet. I loved this week when they were watching Secretary Kim (I’m pretty sure the proposal episode) but mom was trying to find a show that she remembered from like 20 years ago, and the actors had actually gotten married in real life and she was teasing Jin-woo to not mix up fantasy with reality. She never met a kdrama shipper, did she?

I’ve finally completed Prison Playbook! Yay! I really like this soundtrack right now. It’s the other thing playing besides for the Beanie Island Party playlist on Spotify! I will have super fond memories of this show. I don’t think it’s the best show I’ve seen this year, LIVE is still holds that place. The LIVE soundtrack is daebek too! Oh! I should merge these two!

Mr. Sunshine also has a great soundtrack, very sad though. I can’t get any work done when I listen to it. It’s one you just need to wallow in. I like all the artists on it. Like, they all have music in my phone right now. The show is still beautiful, but I confess, I fell asleep while watching both episodes this past week. I could have also been because I was struggling with being sick earlier this week.

That’s it for now.

While watching “Let’s Eat 3:”

Daughter: I know, mom, I can see that.

...Well, you just walked in.

Daughter: Do they use like half their money to pay the chefs on this show?

Me: I don’t know, I think that these are actual restaurants that they are eating in and the owners and cooks there are making the dishes.

Daughter: I bet they’re paid “handsomely.”

Me: *Doing the side eye to her. Was that a joke? Was she making a comment about the actors in the scene—because they’re all handsome and having them in the restaurant is payment enough? Is she only 10? Who is this child that came from my womb?*

Moral of the Story: Some comments you just leave and never know the answer to.

Second Moral: I love my kdrama buddy. She was having heartburn and couldn’t sleep so I gave her medicine and joined me on the couch last night. Making up for the year she kept me up all night with colic.

Third Moral: Have a great weekend all, and I hope you all are well!

I cannot think it was the best drama of the year either, because of Mother and My Ajusshi.
But it is the best long-episodes dramas I have ever watched and one of my favorites of 2017 and 2018.
This is a drama I would rewatch with all its very long episodes. 😉

Happy Weekend Beanies!

I thought I had my priorities sorted every day, and I did…after I started the day with coffee and a Thirty but seventeen episode first. :P It is the first K-drama that feels like the episode lasts only 5 minutes. No matter how interesting, I always end up pausing multiple times in an episode because I can no longer focus. If you can keep me invested for an hour before I have finished my morning coffee, then you are doing a great job.

Just one more episode and I will be able to live watch and comment on recaps with the other beanies until the end. Real life usually forces me to marathon finished K-dramas, so I am glad that I might be able to experience this too. I hear many interesting opinions about watching live versus binge watching, and I would love to experience both at least once. Unfortunately that means a few days without Seo Ri and her housemates, because we only get one episode next week. 
There are of course other K-dramas I could start and catch up on. I am very cross with certain beanies for hyping up My ID is Gangnam Beauty and a Witch’s Love last week, because now I have this crazy ambition to catch up on those as well! :O I finally understand the struggle many beanies go through every week ;)

Good morning my fellow Beanies! Hope everyone had a wonderful week!

I am Human Too Finished this up over the weekend and loved it. I am so happy it ended the way it did. I was worried they would deny us because he is an android while she is human. Seo Kang-Joon did an excellent job playing the 2 different characters. You could tell who was the android and who was the human just by how he acted (unless they were trying to be the other person). Nam Shin III was so sweet and adorable and I'm so happy he got his happy ending. I am pretty sure I am now a robosexual because of him.

My ID is Gangnam Beauty I've only watched 1 episode so far but it seems like it will be good. I was worried about the whole premise around the plastic surgery but so far it seems like they are handling it deftly. She has lived her whole life being bullied and abused because she was so ugly that she couldn't take it anymore. But now that she is beautiful she has a whole new set of issues to deal with all while still being the same person she was. When she did her dance and everyone was cheering for her, she was so happy she was crying that people actually liked her that it broke my heart.

The Flame's Daughter Finished this last week and really enjoyed it. I thought all the actors did a wonderful job and like most Chinese dramas, it was beautiful. I just wish there was a bit more romance and actual physical contact between our main lovers. The small moments they had with each other were sweet but I wanted more! And even though I am happy with the endings resolution it seemed a bit too neat and convenient. I guess when your show involves magic you can do whatever you want to get the results you desire.

Legend of Fuyao I love Yang Mi, she is such a talented actress. She does such an excellent job bringing the badass Fuyao to life. And her chemistry with Ethan Juan is awesome. I could watch hours of these 2 just playing, teasing and cuddling each other. The physical contact I was missing in Flame is made up for in this drama. They are so adorable together. I also love the friendship between Wuji, Beiye, Fuyao, Yue and Zhu. They all support and help each other which makes for an engaging drama. I also love how these heroes are always 1 step ahead of the baddies, unlike Kdramas where the role is usually reversed (which makes for some frustrating dramas). It makes for tons of fist pumping when the heroes plans click into place and the baddies are caught in their intricate net.

Princess Agents If you can't tell I'm in a huge Cdrama kick. Another one I've started and I am enjoying. Chu Qiao is a little boring as a character right now as she doesn't really emote much, even in situations that might call for it. I've never seen Zhao Liying in anything before so I'm not sure if it is her or the character. Right now Yuwen Yue is a bit of an asshole who has his own agenda involving Chu Qiao, but that makes their interactions interesting to watch, and Yan Xun is a playful rascal who just wants to play with his 'wildcat'. I know things will change but it's interesting to see the different characters and how they will change as events start happening.

In the 1st episode they haven't really shown anyone. Just some eyes and the rest of her has all been pretty shadowy. But I feel bad for those actresses who they put in kdramas just to be the 'ugly' person or the comic relief. Like Lee Do-Yeon is usually the 'ugly' comic relief which makes me feel sad for her.

I like the fact that they aren't showing her face as someone who is so ugly - then other girls who might kind of look like her or have similar features could think they were super ugly.

Is shin kicking a uniquely Korean thing? I find it both amusing and horrifying that in kdramas, superiors do it all the time, no matter what dignified position they hold.

I also find the physical abuse and violence towards fellow colleagues seem common place. At least it does in dramas. I am sure there's plenty of backstabbing in the offices anywhere but physical violence, really?

I don't know about in an office setting, but one of my friends while growing up was Korean and she would be physically violent with us. You would be walking and she would just come up and smack you on the back or punch your arm. Of course this is just a single person I knew and this could be just her own quirk and have nothing to do with being Korean, but since I see it in kdramas all the time I just assume that's how it might be.

I feel like physical violence is definitely a Korean thing, but it happens in all Asian countries to some degree. But when I saw a senior resident (Seo Hyun-jin’s character) being slapped/punched by an attending in Romantic Doctor Kim that first time, it totally surprised/floored me. I even asked if that happened in professional medical training there in the first recap I ever wrote in. Because if that happened in the US, there would be at the very least disciplinary action, withheld pay, and likely legal prosecution as well. I also have a friend who is Korean who was physically violent to her husband, who is not Korean, when they were first married, then she learned that it wasn’t appropriate and stopped when they came to the US. I just think that it’s more accepted, as long as you don’t mame the other person.

I'd really like to know to what extent it happens in Asia. Maybe other beanies can comment.

I live in Singapore, South East Asia. I've never heard, much less seen physical violence in a workplace. When it does, it makes to the papers. Two years ago, a boss got 10 days jail for slapping and punching a intern. One might think a kick in the shin is less than a slap or punch but still, no colleague or superior should hit any part of your body.

I'm from India. I can't really comment on the professional scenario because im still a student. However when i was in primary school in India, corporal punishment was banned. Teachers are not even allowed to touch students now. Before that children were regularly caned/flogged. I remember my dad saying that parents in his time used to particularly ask teachers to cane children if they weren't performing academically. Hope this helps :)

I'm also Indian, only in my 20s, but during my early childhood, I've been caned several times for not listening to teachers - even though I was a straight A+s student. So that's a fairly recent development

At work, while outright physical abuse is not tolerated, superiors can get away with a lot of other stuff.
Eg. 1. A friend of mine was forced to climb eight floors once right after she injured her knee in an accident because her boss didn't like her,
2. I've been made to move insanely heavy bags, or travel alone late at night in isolated places, because my boss was an a**hole,
3. I've heard of people having paper weights thrown at them by a famour partner in one of the biggest law firms here.

None of this is direct physical violence, but is, I think, no less shocking.

2

@greenfields

I totally agree! Abuse definitely takes place in offices everywhere, they just don't come in direct physical form.

2

@greenfields
Ouch! All those examples sound incredibly abusive. In the medical field I've only heard of the patient's relatives attacking doctors lol. But we are always advised by our seniors to stay on the nice side of our profs if we don't want our viva marks going down the drain😂

1

Also @greenfields,
It s a fairly recent development based on how old you are. It was introduced around 8-10 yrs back if I'm not wrong. I used to study in a convent school in kindergarten and punishment for messy handwriting used to be a rap on the knuckles with a cane. Imagine punishing 5 year olds! My handwriting has drastically improved but I can't really say I'm thankful tho🙄

I'm from Malaysia, and like @outofthisworld said, never seen physical violence in workplaces, but when it does happen, it's a big thing, and frowned upon.

Hi Everyone and Happy OT!
Following up on what I was saying last week ... I'm definitely continuing with Firefly and loving it. I've watched the episode with the funniest torture scene ever. I think I giggled throughout, as the torture-ee's repartee continued unabated, while punctuated by their yells of pain. The only thing I found a bit out of whack was the lack of Asians, since that story world had a US-China Alliance. The so-called spoken Chinese had me in stitches ... that is, if I could even understand any of it!!! 😆

The irreverent humour, the weirdest sense of honour of Capt Mal (who could just as well kill as save a person), and the well-paced, coherent action with a roundedness to each character is a winner through and through. Can't they just continue where they left off but treat it as a new series, set a decade later, but with the same cast? 😂

Firefly was great!

The Chinese was apparently a mix of dialects, filtered thru the accents of the actors. I know some Mandarin, but no Cantonese....

The line "Give me another cup of Wu Jia Pyi" was gibberish to me until I read what it was supposed to be. BTW, Wu Jia Pyi is something you probably don't want another cup of.

@outofthisworld I'm glad I'm not the only one finding the spoken Chinese incomprehensible. I freely admit that I never learned Chinese and only picked up bits in the course of living... so I was wondering if my hearing was so bad or my comprehension next to nil!! 😅 😂

Ooooh!!! Thanks so much @tsutsuloo Precisely what I was hoping for... just didn't have the time to get around to searching for these yet. You've saved me all that time 😆 .

@growingbeautifully I think we couldn't recognize that Chinese was spoken in the video because there was zero intonation. If I didn't see the subtitles and watch the video, I'd wondered "what gibberish!"

Mandarin Chinese is a tonal language and it's what trips up those learning the language or try speaking it.

@outofthisworld Yup, you got that right. No intonation and spoken so fast. Now I must go read the posts that @tsutsuloo gave us! 😇

Happy Friday Beanies. I am having to stay back in school for 1 hour each day for practices so Reply 1997 is on pause (its too addictive, it will mess up my schedule very badly. I still haven't read the recap of the last 2 episodes). Started from episode 7 of 30 but 17 and enjoying it immensely. Chan, along with his chicks is just too adorable. Yang Se Jong is a delight to watch.
Still struggling with 11th grade maths.
Yesterday our former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee passed away so there was no school today. His cremation was today and my family saw the entire coverage even though it was around 3 hours long. That is how respected the man was, not just within his own party but even among the opposition. There was a certain silence in the air today which could only be associated with his death. India has truly lost one of her greatest sons

If I'm not wrong then our 11th and 12th grade maths corresponds to the advanced (? Is that right?) Course that 10th graders take in the States. One of my friends had moved to the US and found that students there are a year or two behind us. So she had to take advanced courses (again I don't know if this is the right term, merely repeating what she told me) to keep up with us.

TGIF! Congratulations on surviving another hot summer week! Sad that my favorite LoM ended and I am still debating whether to watch Voice2 (I couldn't finish Voice because I got scared). Good that I still have Mr. Sunshine and other shows(Life yes!).

I saw people mentioning the cute music show "To. Jenny" in OT. Kim Sung-chul (27) who played the lead Park Sung-min, and also appeared in "Wise Prison living" had a short interview.[Star News] "I am not a shy person. So I had hard time acting the character because my real self kept popping up. I had one-sided crush before, but I am not the type lingering on it. I think I had one for about 2 years when I was in high school." In "To Jenny" the only thing his character knew was singing. Even though the show only had 2 episodes, it gained viewers' interests as a new Music genre drama. "In a drama the emotion gets stronger when there is music. In this drama, because actor did music himself I think emotion was relayed better. As an actor who loves music, I was attracted to this project because I could do acting and music. I have never dreamed to become a singer, but I enjoyed to sing ever since I was young. I've never had a lesson for instruments, but I got to learn the guitar for the show."

About co-star Jung Jae-yeon(21), he expressed satisfaction. "Jae-yeon is still young so she can do many and variety of roles. She portrayed an image of first love, and I think she can digest other characters with her acting as well as with her looks." About doing shoots with her, Kim said, "Because we were in the situation that we had to talk comfortably rather quickly, I pretended being close. In filming the scene going on a picnic in episode 2, we had to act having fun. It could've been burden because it was first scene filming and we were still awkward. Even though there was no line, I made her open up by doing ad-lib."

Kim studied theater, and made his debut in musical "Adolescence" in 2014. However he was only seriously recognized by TVN's Wise Prison Living. "Wise prison living was the project which brought me up to the surface, and now I started to swim through "To Jenny". From here and on, all I have to do is to swim deeper and pick marine products, working hard." Kim's dream is to become an "Action star". He wants to challenge an action genre like Avengers which also has fancy CG. "Action itself is very manly and it has lot to watch. Maybe that is why I am attracted to. I really love a superhero character like 'Dark knight'. Don't you think Koreans can make those too?"

Kim plans to meet the audience in the movie "Rose of Betrayal" in fall. "Until my next project is decided, I think I will spend time on preparation, doing workout and stuff. I think it will be time to accept new things."

Happy weekend, Beanies 🌷

Your House Helper- Things happen but feels like the plot slows down a bit. I'm surprised with the latest episode's ending, totally didn't see that coming because there's no hint at all from previous episodes. But it's nice tho, more plot development.😊

30 but 17- Not much to say, still cute, full of heart. 😍

Witch's Love- Getting pretty interesting, but I wonder what's the meaning of that blue jar dropped and broke? Maybe I ff too much that I missed the point? Or not? Witch ahjumma and halmoni with their cute sleep caps, adorable!😂 There's a debate that SML is the destined one but because I got this deep trauma watching Hongbin in Moorim School and Wenesday, so nope. 🙈

Heavy Sweetness, Ash-like Frost- Ugh, that Empress is so annoying and evil😒

Picking up Caught in The Heartbeat, so far 1st episode got pretty weird unnecessary fluff (I mean really show? FL will get memory flashback/ clue about the crime every time she kisses the ML?). I was expecting it to be more serious ala CSI since it's a crime drama. But I'll keep watching since the case makes me curious.

Re: House Helper, I was wondering why he seemed kinda, idk, almost jealous whenever he saw Woo Jin and Da Young interact. Another question I have is what does he get out of Woo Jin pining after his mom? Neither one of them knows where she is. He's old enough to understand that Woo Jin needs to move on. Idk, just seems immature and out of place in this drama.

Hi beanies!
Happy Friday. Just wanted to write you a quick note before flying out to a castle in France (one of my many, many, many cousins is getting married and oh boy, is she sparing no expenses for the traditionnal-religious-extravaganza awaiting us all), so I'll be off the site for the next 10 days. I just wanted to tell you all how happy I am that you exist, each and every one of you, because your comments make me smile, because your passion makes me happy, and your general loveliness makes this crazy world a better place. Yes, dramas are not necessarily "serious" work, and they may seem silly and superficial to the outside eye, but we all know better and I'm in awe of the generosity, respect, and wild diversity of opinions on this site. Makes it a magical place for me and my beluga ways :)
