Beanie level: Noble idiot

Anyone watching Doctor John? Is it good?

Caught up on WWW. Loved the work resolutions for everyone. But the couple get-back-together was trite. A little sad at a show that was true to itself until then. You deserved better!

WWW–you are so, so incredible. Strong, nuanced women fighting for themselves and others, smart dialogue about the issues in pioneering technology, surprises in plot despite knowing the episode 8 rule

    But what’s this episode 8 rule though? πŸ˜€

      Same question!

      (spoiler) the OST almost always kisses/gets together around mid-point of the show, usually episode 8 (there’s also usually the blow-up-in-your-face that happens end of episode 14)

        Episode 8 is when they’re done establishing their plot and have used up all their original content. Episode 10/11 is OTP kiss, episode 14 is when they run out of story.
        Basically, everything after episode 8 (the back half) is when shows start to lose it.

Reach of Sincerity is cute and funny, but she’s so idiotic. I don’t know if I can do Yoo In Na pretending to be bad at acting and without intelligence. It’s like a caricature of Queen In Hyun’s Man.

    Same, I’m just like did they have to make her character this dense

    Amazing, isn’t it?. She attended college so she has some semblance of sense and intelligence.

    Ikr? I love Yoo Inna and I miss her so much. I thought this drama will be similar in vibe with Top Star Yoo Baek, fun and breezy. But it’s… boring. And I don’t like any of the characters, they are like caricature. Sigh… I think I’ll need to say goodbye much, much earlier to my fave unni.

I’m so MAD about the dramafever shutdown. Stupid TimeWarner. They couldn’t wait until the current great batch of shows that they had the rights to had finished? Lots of pirating in my future.

Sketch has gotten so good and Hungry Wok is languishing in parental disapproval banality. HW had such a creative beginning, and I didn’t see the point of Sketch at first. K-dramas always surprise.

    I find it weird that Greasy Melo was so complex and innovative and now it’s just an OTP AGAINST THE ODDS like every other kdrama. I mean, I’m still loving it because I love the OTP. But I’d describe some of the plot resolutions as “banal” as well. Comparatively speaking at least.

    Sketch? I haven’t heard good things about it but obviously you’re enjoying it.

      Yea, I did not like it for a long time because it seemed futile to work on sketches you couldn’t change. However one character eventually can change the seen future, and the plot twists get really good around episode 10. Mr. X (not so bad guy going after the very bad guys) is also very complex. I found myself wanting things to work out for him, and then being surprised the show made me feel that way because Mr. X is awful. I’m not sure I’d ever have gotten to episode 10 though if I wasn’t on summer break as a teacher.

        I’m still intrigued by Sketch. It’s a little slower paced maybe than most thrillers, but the plot twists have been so good.

Just caught up with WWWSK. The This Life is Our First Life cameo was so good! I was laughing and squeeing over it. The music, the quotes, Lee Min Ki (come back to us in something soon!)….

    I’m not watching the show but watched the cameo and GAH. Love.

    Lee Min-ki is going to be in The Beauty Inside drama remake! Can’t say I’m too excited about the drama from the description but I’m hoping to be pleasantly surprised. JTBC’s been so solid lately. And I’m excited to see him work with lots of different actors.

Why. Would. You. Go. Into. A. Raging. Fire. For A Cellphone? I was so annoyed at her until I realized it was the writers’ fault. Trying out AYH2 but the need to overlook the impossible is high.

    That’s actually pretty realistic. People do really stupid things at fires, and often go back in for things that don’t matter. I can’t fault the writer for that one. Though truthfully the girl’s a bit of a dim bulb to begin with.

    Hahaha, you sound like me right before I dropped it. But I’ve been forced convinced to pick it up again.

I’ve been putting off watching Lawless Lawyer even though I love it because I”m nervous of what’s going to happen. Is it ok (peeking through fingers) to watch?

I’m not sure any drama has ever made me laugh as much as What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim (wow-that rollercoaster ride). And they’re making me fall for the narcissist anyways…

I only bought one–I’m not an insane Army–but I’m glad I helped.

    Yay, congrats BTS! I didn’t buy it yet, I want to, but I have yet to. Nevertheless, I did stream a lot. πŸ™‚ Just because it was so good, and I could listen to it all the time. Maybe just a small contribution, but. We do what we can and see how the numbers pan out.

      I’ve really enjoyed learning the meanings behind the songs and BTS’ thoughts on them over the last week. They and Big Hit put such thoughtfulness into the music.

        They really do! I think that’s my favorite thing about them, how personal and reflective the songs can be.. From the choreo, to the MVs, to the lyrics themselves, they’re all intertwined and connected in a beautiful way. They touch our hearts and inspire us, and it’s amazing.

        This is true – I’ve loved gaining more insight into the songs over the last week. There were actually a couple of songs I didn’t like on the first listen, but I love all of them now as I learn more. ^^

    People were predicting that they would place #1 due to the number of albums sold. I am so excited for them!

I’m really liking Lawless Lawyer. Fingers crossed, but it looks like LJK is actually in a drama with a decent script and a decent female co-star.

Anyone else confused by Sketch? If she’s never stopped anything happening in her drawings, then it gives the show a bit of futility for the viewer. Also, why the prosecutor? She’d stop more crimes.

    Congrats and high-five from a fellow noble idiot! To be honest, I have no idea which one to pick cos’ dramaland has gazillions. But since I’ve caught the Waikiki fever, I pick the top idiot of the lot, Lee Jun-ki, who is not all that noble yet very much an adorkable idiot who sometimes does the right thing in the end πŸ˜€

      I tried that and it looked cute, but the second-hand embarrassment was too much for me.

    I think the Just Between Lovers pair is my most recent favorite. With all the trauma they suffered, their actions made the most sense even when I was going “no!!!”. Son Oh Gong’s moment of realizing he could take off his bracelet was my favorite noble idiot moment (what a well done moment!!), but we all know how bad that ended.

https://www.soompi.com/2018/02/24/quiz-can-guess-2017-k-drama-based-screenshot/ This was a fun little quiz. Although I didn’t get as many right as I would have liked–too picky a watcher now, I guess.

I just watched Erased on Netflix, and it was super good! The plot is so interesting! The best part is when they are all kids.

    Me too! I loved the kids more than the adults. The story was ok for me but the cinematography was gorgeous
