Beans of Wisdom, with a side of carbs
by | April 23, 2016 | 35 Comments
The Beans of Wisdom are awfully starchy this week, but only in the best way—the drama news has been carb-loaded, and it’s only fitting that the comments follow suit. Of course, there are a good mix of other comments too, but why describe when you can read? Without further ado… “EXO’s Suho stars in fantasy... More »

Beans of Wisdom: Comments of the week
by | April 2, 2016 | 61 Comments
