Beanie level: Errand boy

Finished yet another great coming of age C-Drama, #MyYouth

I loved how their journey to forever started because Tian Ye thought she had a crush on him and was “creating” coincidences with him. It pisses him to no end that he can’t get Can Can off his case, but he eventually falls her charm. She’s an amazing lyricist; he composes. That was the start when he slowly saw her as his better half. When he learned that truth, the truth that Can Can was no where near in love with him, he was bummed out, but he worked hard to win her heart.

I loved how their high school focused on spending time together, discovering their individuals’ strengths and shortcomings, planning for the uncertain future.

Can Can’s gradual realization that her feelings had changed was so relatable. She had fallen out of her first love and ended up falling for the guy who had always been with her. I liked how Tian Ye was a friend to her first before he became her boyfriend.

    What did you think about his part in the time capsule video?
    I loved that they became friends first and that he realized and accepted his change in feelings first also.

      His time capsule video didn’t surprise me. It was so Tian Ye to not say anything at all! He’s reserved, so his wishes were something he couldn’t openly talk about especially at that age. But he knew what he wanted, and as he said there was only one wish of his that hadn’t happened yet (which he fulfilled himself right there). Gah! He already had marriage in mind with her from way back!

      Yes, true! I guess it goes both ways – they were both friends to each other first before they fell in love.

        I loved how different he seemed between his current self and his HS self. I hadn’t realized he’d went through such a transformation. He was so gruff and guarded in the video.

        Yeah, I was curious if you thought he was thinking about Can Can in the video. And you’re right, thinking about it there is no way he’d have said it for the camera.

          He was so gruff and guarded in the video

          Gasp! Yes! His character development was so natural. I didn’t remember that he was more closed off in high school until I saw his video! In university, he was more outgoing, playing computer games with his buddies, participating in concert gigs, much more open with his feelings to Can Can!

          Speaking of natural, I just love how everything about their relationship is so organic yknow. When they fell in love, it just felt right. When Can Can started missing his presence, it was really at a time he was all she hang out with and then he just stopped being there for her!

          I would def suggest this drama especially when you’re in the mood for some innocent, youth romance.

          Hopefully this isn’t much of a spoiler but I really liked that these kids decided to visit their highschool a decade later on the final episode. They looked back on how innocent their dreams and aspirations were. They grew up and had learned to be responsible for their life decisions.

          Youth dramas always make me so senti 😢

I’ve become greedy, guys. I`m not satisfied anymore by bits and pieces of Scarlet and Ji Hwan in an hour and 10 minutes per episode. I`m not even bothered by the shining, shimmering world they are in. I`m willing to jump into this world for Scarlett and Ji Hwan. 🥺

    I actually think the Scarlet/Ji Hwan snippets are a stroke of brilliance!

    This drama-writer knows her audience. She knows we’re loving it – but also, she doesn’t make Scarlet’s story all about this romance. Scarlet has a proper job, real work to do and maybe more important things in her life than getting herself a new bf. That’s why it’s only snippets and not an entire episode. Even though I’m dying to find out what happened after they all met for drinks.

    I think it’s very clever writing.

    Not a fan of the directing though. That lighting is driving me nuts.

    (But yes, I have been rewatching these bits from the episodes)

      Oh absolutely! I love that for a secondary character, they are able to flesh out Scarlett and she doesn’t even take up that much of time. She’s very layered and we get to see her life both at and outside work.

      Really loved that part where she said she’d practically die working for Barro! Her work dedication is amazing.

      She is a great colleague to Ta Mi as well. I love how despite their differences at work, they are a team both at and outside work!

      It makes me wonder though how she ended up going out with that buffoon. But thinking about it, she probably repelled a lot of men cuz she’s unorthodox and tough as hell. So perhaps when that buffoon asked her out, it made her happy. She did say she went out with him cuz she found him cute. And she would always fix herself first before meeting up with him. Scarlett is a girl at heart deep down and I’m glad that Ji Hwan might finally be her Mr. Right and can see/appreciate her worth.

      RE: Lighting. Very blinding and disturbing 😅 but no joke, I didn’t notice it when I first watched that scene at the filming set.

    I’m glad I took a chance on this show and I have the spazzing on the Beanie Fan Wall to thank!
    Scarlet is definitely my fav character! She’s direct, honest, would physically bulldoze through anyone and yet her childlike admiration for her Sunbae is a 180 degree whiplash that genuinely tugs at my heart. Her work ethic is strong and when she falls in love, ouf! She’s goooone! An Alpha Woman with a pure heart of gold.

    And who better than our puppy Ji-Wan to be the Gentle Adoring Beta Male to hold her precious heart. If only there could have been a spin-off show focused on them!

      I miss them now. Their OTP came such a surprise for all of us. He didn’t entirely show up until halfway through the series, it was a lost cause from there on. 100% swooning for the little scenes they had.

      Ep 10 was a better episode. Not only for my shipper’s heart but plot wise. And omg I watched this and ep 9 on viki at 95-97% and it was frustrating to watch the nonsubs parts cuz some of them were Scarlett’s lines so I would suggest wait until they’re 100% complete.

      But huehehehehehe Marco tho, my love grows for him. Their scenes each episode need to increase! I’m starting to get greedy and not satisfied 😅😵

      Huehhehehehee! I love how he’s seeing the cute side of her and he’s finding it delightful. And gah how awesome is he though that he ended up not retelling her made up story, but actually their real meet-up story 😍😍 This guy is no pushover, yo. I hope he continues to floor Scarlett. I legit squeal with her when he called her on first name basis! “Let’s go, Hyeon-ah” 😱😱

Throwback to that time when this drama was everything 😔 #TheMoonEmbracesTheSun

It had one of the best OSTs ever.

I’m still waiting for the day Kim Yoo Jung and Yeo Jin Goo are reunited in another drama and they will be leads this time.

Makjang Plot twist! Scarlett finally meeting her makjang actor in flesh! #SearchWWW

But she had him rolling on the ground, like a badass she is, at the first meet…😂

Now he’s injured, ottoke? 😱 How can we see him back on screen???

Look at how happy she is seeing him up close.

Scarlett, I love you ♥️

Scarlett was me when I was watching the eye-rolling, uber makjang C-Drama #BecauseOfMeetingYou a couple of weeks ago! #SearchWWW

One moment, it would make me so furious.. 😡😡

Then a few scenes later, I’d be spazzing, quickly clicking on to the next episode! 🤣

Of course, shamelessly inserting Deng Lun and Sun Yi gifs in this post, as I cannot mention #BecauseOfMeetingYou without gushing over this couple! 😍

      Watching this uber makjang drama will really test your patience. The fast forward button is the best ally you’ll need. The redeeming factors of it are female lead is no wimp and can stand up for herself and no noble idiocy of OTP! They fight together whatever makjang plots they have up against and had never given up on each other. I definitely got rewarded with these beautiful family quality time and very sweet OTP scenes for seeing this drama to the end! Lol

Shin Hye Sun, the ultimate goddess in this messed up drama universe. Dancing and interpreting her own version of Giselle – I was with her throughout her whole performance, being moved once again. #Angel’sLastMission:Love

This week’s episodes’ highlight for me was Yeon Seo’s character growth. I was so proud to see so many great changes in her. She put herself in Giselle’s shoes, went so deep into her character, and realized that she was the same. She cannot hate the man she loves; she longs for him, she misses him, but hate and anger are far from what she feels even if this love puts her in so much misery.

”True love cannot be defined by any means; it’s a cluster of adjectives. It’s crazy, passionate, complicated, painful, but most importantly true love is real. It’s that feeling of being inexplicably drawn to another person. Love isn’t finding someone you can escape reality with, it’s finding someone who makes reality worthwhile…”

        Ack. It broke my heart, one of the few times that I can understand why the lead is going to leave his love.

      But this was another runaway disobedient angel. Not sure why he got many years with his wife while JKW was confronted immediately or why JKW has been allowed to live freely all this time. I guess whatever serves the plot is what we get. Not even going to talk about how messed up that execution was.

          I guess my feelings are more complicated. I still am really invested in this drama and the relationship between YS and Kim Dan. I care about NN, and I want to see her compete with and maybe even excel against YS. I want to see what happens with JKW. I’d like to know why our butler is so dedicated to YS. I thought YS made a lot of good moves in this episode in terms of putting her aunt and JKW in their places and showing empathy to the dancers and the elderly couple.

          At the same time, I’m really disappointed in the writer. I totally understand that right now she needed to throw an obstacle between YS and Kim Dan. Although it was definitely an attention-grabbing scene and allowed Dan a gut-wrenching vision of YS in place of the blind woman, the execution was totally inconsistent with what happened to JKW (what, no glittery gun? no feathery costumes?), and totally inconsistent with Christianity, which wouldn’t matter except that Hu is masquerading as a Christian priest in a Christian church, so I think we’re supposed to assume he serves the Christian God. It also was hard to understand why Hu knew exactly where to find this run-amok angel, but waited until this moment to deal with him. This makes me worry a little about where this drama is headed, because if you look at the banner, Dan holding the umbrella for her, a heart on his pocket, and if you look at the use of comedy in this drama, then it seems pretty clear that this is not going to have a melo ending. Also, unlike JKW and Angel Noel, Kim Dan is obedient. But if the writer is going to be inconsistent, then I’m worried that this plot train may be headed way off the tracks.

            Yep – I just unloaded on my wall about what you just wrote. It’s been bugging me since last night.

            The only redeeming factor in this episode was seeing Yeon Seo’s individual growth. I’m amazed to see how patient she was, her dedication to make things right. And Kim Dan, no denying here, has influenced her of these changes.

            Yeah unfortunately I’m not to invested with any other characters than Dan and Yeon Seo. Well yeah maybe Lady Butler too cuz her dedication to her is admirable.

            Also reflecting on this episode, I dunno it gives me the vibe that angel/God here is the antagonist and not Kang Woo. He said that God’s punishment was an act of devil, now I *think* like we’re dealing with a different kind of God here. Maybe Yeon Seo is right, Kim Dan is following some sort of cult…. sigh😪 look at what this drama has turned me too – imagining unimaginable ridiculous plots that don’t make sense.

        Sadly so much Doesn’t make sense. It’s so against everything I grew up with going to Catholic church. Which if they want to get creative, I get it. Its make-believe but it seems like the only thing they’re working toward is maximum pain for everyone involved and its distressing.

What he says hits home, it makes her tear up. #Angel’sLastMission:Love

I like the emphasis on making happiness a priority here. It is something Kang Woo scoffs at because it was taken away from him. On the other hand, it is the most important thing to Dan. I hope he doesn’t lose sight of this pursuit of happiness. And that he and Yeon Seo can find it together
