Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

Gu Yanzhen, my boy, is going through a major heartbreak. I`m dying. 😂 #ArsenalMilitaryAcademy

At the pub, he’s demanded the server to play the songs he wants to listen to right now…. Here are the song titles…

😂😂😂

🤣🤣🤣

Somebody, please play him these songs!

          He is everything, chasingbears! Male lead is such a scene stealer. He’s just so smitten, I don’t know what to do with his broken heart 😂 I want to send him some love and sympathize with him, but he leaves me in stitches. 🤣🤣

This entire exchange is so funny. I wish gifs and screencap could capture how hilarious this is. #ArsenalMilitaryAcademy

This girl is suspecting that the girlfriends are lovers and she asked male lead what he thinks about it. Since he’s in the joke, he says “I don’t know. I don’t see it” 😂 He’s in the background and all I see are his reactions and how much he’s getting a kick out of this. Here’s one of them.

          Beanies, I’m in love with him. He can do nothing and I’d still be 😍😍.

          Anyways he is a natural in this drama. I love that he fell for her first too. And hard. I was laughing so hard at the pub scene when she was trying to lie her way out with her real identity and all he did was smirk 😏 and scoff 🥴

      Bev, I’m in love with this series when these two are on my screen. The rest of the plot not so much, very patriotic-ish. But! That’s just me cuz I watch drama for romance. And bummer that that’s not the highlight of the show.

      Anyways here’s the fanmade mv that made me check this series out and I’m sharing with you for motivation! 😬😬 https://youtu.be/3SSneyKcsbk

        The characters are definitely what makes this drama for me. Even the side characters are great. Very well acted and written characters.

          I didn’t like Mating before, but episode 8, she’s so funny! I kinda like her camaraderie with Yanzhen! Hopefully she doesn’t fall for him, cuz I like what they are right now.

          2
          2

            Yanzhen and Manting are my favorite characters. But I also liked her pretty early into the drama.

            And sorry to say you’ll be disappointed. But I still like her and his relationship (she is basically a female version of him).

            1
            0

            @trinpie ack!!! I knew it! 😭 I honestly cannot blame her. I mean one look and I’ve already fallen for him, hard, so I understand her.

            Yes, I can see what you mean – that she’s the female version of him. Watch me fall for her too later in the series. Right now, female lead is my girl.

    This is what I’m watching right now! I just got to some of the best parts where he is in full on flirt mode and it’s hilarious and the best. Especially since everyone thinks they are gay with how over-the-top he flirts with her, not that he cares what others think.

    It’s not heavily romantic but it’s still really well done. I really like all the characters and it’s very entertaining to watch.

    Ah. Look at him. The veins!!

    Btw. Have a question. If a character is not self aware they participate in tails but they don’t remember what happened in tails? Is that what happens?
    And they consistently behave like how their character is written even when outside the heads.
    So what happens when a self aware character behaves differently from written script. Do they sense it?

    2
    1

      Yes correct. If a character is not self aware, they won’t remember what happened in the tails. In episode 2, fairy discussed more of the Secret’s world to Dan Oh – the rules, what heads and tails scenes are (in the drama this is stage and shadow respectively), etc.

      Only self aware characters knows what’s going on in both heads and tails. They do not forget that something had happened in the tails. But they’ll realize again that they’re back performing their roles in the heads because they do something “naturally” – if this makes sense. Naturally in a way, they don’t need to think about what’s gonna happen – their words and actions come out whether they like it or not.

    so is the guy in the jersey the “male lead” Nam Joo?
    And and who is the guy walking with the musical instrument wearing the tie?

    Since subs are not out, am planning to read the webtoon during lunch!

    1
    1

      Yes the jersey guy is Nam Joo, the webtoon’s “male lead”. The musical guy is Do Hwa who is the “second male lead”, also Dan Oh’s future camaraderie once he becomes aware of the situation as well. In the webtoon you’ll see more of Do Hwa than Nam Joon. But in here look like Nam Joon’s going to appear a lot.

      Have fun reading! 😬😬

      1

        This is so good!! “I am not only an extra but have terminal illness’!! I can’t wait to watch the episode.
        I already like Do Hwa – typical nice second male lead, who wont get the girl I guess.

        It will be interesting to see how heads and tails are shown on TV, especially since both can coexist.

        1
        2

          Blue!! I’m glad you are liking the webtoon! Her finding out that she’s not even a supporting character, but a mere extra in the webtoon is just so funny. But I guess what the webtoon is trying to come across is you are the main lead of your life. Now her fight for her freedom is on! It will be tough but she’s slowly finding loopholes here and there so hopefully she succeeds! Webtoon isn’t done translating so I don’t know the end…

          Yes in ep 1, heads and tails scenes aren’t that clear yet. Maybe her being uber hyper and eccentric were the tails scenes. But it’s hard to tell at the moment.

          0
          0

          And yes Do Hwa Has checked off the SLS! But Nam Joo’s “secret” was what won me, so I became team Nam Joo and Ju Da after that. The webtoon is titled “Secret” cuz all do them have one or two.

          0
          2

            Oh I was wondering why the book was called ‘Secret’!! Will find out as I read more.
            Also, I found this webtoon very well presented. It was easy to read yet had a lot going on.

            @mayhemf yes blue. I like the storytelling of this webtoon. And the art is gorgeous! I’m not sure if you’re at the part where Haru shows up, but my heart is with him. His is just so sad. 😢 I’m glad he found Dan Oh.

            Anyways enough spoiling! Hahaha enjoy the rest of it!

        I watched a drama called Love Better Than Immortality and pretty much everything about the drama wasn’t good and was very low budget. But the romance and main couple were great and had really good chemistry with each other, which got me to watch the whole drama and like it for that sake. So a good romance can carry a drama at times😀

Started another C-Drama, #Unexpected. This is a 2018 show. Not sure how long my interest will last, but I haven’t fast forwarded any scenes so far.

It’s a fantasy drama about a manhua author who gets sucked into the world of his creation. There he meets his female and male leads and the evil, rotten-to-the-core second female lead. In order to return to this world, he is given a task by an NPC to fix the life of the evil second female lead and give her a HEA. In his original work, she didn’t get any redemption.

So this and that happened, and he’s screwing up his manhua big time:
• The male lead isn’t into the female lead anymore because he sees her verbally and physically attacking the evil female second lead
• The female lead becomes this petty girl who wails at every single turn in her life
• The evil second female lead’s life turns into a makjang and is slowly falling for him because he comes at the perfect time to save her instead of the male lead

It’s hilarious. I’m only halfway through episode 6 and so much has happened already in his manhua world

There is no logic here – I just wait and see how much more he can royally damage the flow of his story and how he falls for the character that he wrote off as forever doomed. hope this will be good to the end. I’m liking it a lot.

      Uh-oh. 😕 Did you finish the show, Rumi? The author’s male lead is indeed interesting. He’s conflicted to like female lead because her actions aren’t really impressive so far and he seems really a nice dude. I like the growing bromance between him and his author though!

      0
      1

        I didn’t finish…. Because subs. I know viki completed them a month or so ago… But I’d moved on by then.
        Unexpected presented some questions similar to W that question why things happen the way they do in webtoon, dramas etc. A writer having to fight his own plot holes.

        Maybe now I need to watch it again from the beginning, I’ve forgotten most of it. 🤔

        1
        1

          I’m on ep 20 now, and the angst and lack of trust from the author slowed down my watch. I wish he were more trustful of the evil second lead whose I’m very proud of her character growth. When author doesn’t understand her actions, he tells her how she never changed at all and that hurts. A lot. Anyways other than the angst, they are cute together. I liked how they just started going out just like that.

          Male lead and female lead are cute even with their push pull relationship. Typical male and female lead, I guess. And Male lead is beautiful. I can 😍 at his face all day.

      Halfmoon, this is where I watch My Neighbour Can’t Sleep https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_qkgvYf93fGQIATqc7Nj9A/videos She has 15 episodes up so far. I haven’t seen Episode 15 yet because I got distracted by Unexpected. Hehehe!

      Unexpected is on Viki. I`m starting Episode 13, although it isn’t as crackfest as the first 8 series, I`m still enjoying it. Hope you don’t mind spoilers, but lol, just a gist of what’s happening now – male lead rejected female lead. I`m cracking up. And female lead is sulky about it. Male lead is jealous of the affection he’s seeing between the author and the evil second lead. He says that’s the kind of love he’s looking for, and he’s not feeling that with the female lead. Awwww. I feel really bad for him. He asks the author what love is and author fails to answer. He doesn’t know what love is either despite the romance-genre manhua he wrote that was loved by many.

I have to admit though Song Joong Ki and Moon Chae Won’s chemistry will always be one of my favourites. Despite its makjangfest, I can talk about Ma Roo and Eun Gi forever and talk about how Eun Gi is perfect for Ma Roo
