Beanie level: Entertainer-in-training

Aw! The Goblin feels just came to me with @egads going to Quebec and this interview with Kim Go Eun! https://www.soompi.com/article/1345811wpp/kim-go-eun-talks-about-what-goblin-cast-was-really-like-on-set-their-enduring-friendship

    I’m so excited to finally go to Quebec. Not just for the Goblin your, but also because every line of my ancestors went through that area before heading to the US. The French, the English, and the Irish. So it’s a bit of family history trip too.

Day6 tickets officially went on sale last Saturday for Dallas! So I won’t be paying a boatload for them, hopefully! Wish me luck calling the box office tomorrow! #presalescams #newtoconcerts #ididntmissit

If I were to write recaps for DB, β€œI Can Hear Your Song” would be my tryout drama. There are so many classical music pieces that are not subtitled that I could help decipher! The piano piece played in episode 3 is Chopin’s Nocturne in C# minor which is one of my favorites because it let me take second place in the state my senior year in high school. It’s one of the few pieces that I can still play 25 years later. And it also holds special meaning because it’s in β€œThe Pianist,” a movie about a Jewish man who survived the Holocaust. This is him playing it. https://youtu.be/n9oQEa-d5rU Now go watch the movie with a boatload of tissues everyone! You have to play this with emotion because it’s not that difficult technically, but very difficult to get the right feel out of it.

    So what do you think of her skill as a musician?
    Is she supposed to be good but not up to orchestra level?

      I think she’s supposed to be up to a professional level. I’m no tympanist, but the editing of the scenes where she plays is actually really good, making it look like she really is playing. I may be totally wrong, but real life percussionists play more than just the tympani, so a tryout would be on other instruments too, I would think.

    Legit have had this happen to me before. Like twice. It’s great.
    Also there have been several instances of K-pop related things going viral outside of the kpop loop, among the greater public and it amuses me greatly when that happens, because they don’t know what it is but they’re seeing it anyway. Ahh … The internet.

    I love Austen adaptations. I love faithful ones. I love modern ones. I love the screwy weird ones. There really should be more of them.

      I’m not loving the idea of this one because I can see a never-ending series coming up.

        I understand your fear. I want random one-offs made by diverse independent creatives. I might know a writer who could probably imagine a screenplay with a serial killer Wickham, a sarcastic investigative reporter Lizzie, and a cold, misunderstood detective Darcy.

          I know too much RL stuff about this Sanditon adaptation to actually be excited about it in any way, shape or form.

          Still think Persuasion would make an awesome modern kdrama though.

          0
          4

            Oh no. To be honest, because it was unfinished, I’m not sure how I feel about Sanditon being adapted.

            Persuasion would adapt very well to kdrama. All that family and class stuff, the military. Yep. Someone make it happen.

            Instead of making a fortune in the navy, Korean Captain Wentworth can have gone to the States and become a genius neurosurgeon, now coming back to Seoul to go on blind dates and get married.

            @ally-le, it will probably be fine.

            However, what they pitched was a series that tie in other things (such as stories from Jane Austen’s life or minor characters from other books) to make it an >3 season drama (with the option to make it even longer)

            I guess as it was unfinished, they can do whatever they like but I hate dramas that never end.

        I think it fits the summer sweltering heat vibe of this song perfectly, like those Rastafarians in Jamaica, with their gruff low notes. Love it.

Sky Castle ep 6. This is getting too tedious for me. I do like the satire. I also like how passive aggressive/aggressive MRS. Cha is becoming. I hate seeing the cut-throat competitiveness though.

    Isn’t it mindblowing that they require little kids to read and understand Plato and Nietzsche?😱

      Not just that, but how parents don’t really care about the mental health of their kids; they are killing each other and their kids.

    I share your sentiments. One of the reasons I decided to not give up on it is because people have mentioned that the drama eventually shifts from the housewives to the students and honestly I want to see what goes down between them. Unfortunately this type of cut-throat competitiveness exists in the current world, especially in SK…

      Maybe it’s also where I live and the fact my husband is a psychiatrist, but it’s ridiculous how they ignore these kids’ basic mental needs. No wonder they jump off buildings.

      1
      1

        Yeah, from what I read mental health is a taboo subject in Korea and if what is portrayed in this show is somewhat the truth then it explains the high suicide rate among teenagers in Korea. Too much social pressure from peers (bullying) and from the parents. That’s cool that your husband is a psychiatrist, having someone to discuss subjects often portrayed in k-dramas must be interesting ^-^.

        It’s really really not a medical show so I don’t want you to expect a lot of doctoring.

          I’m not. It’s just weird to me to see doctors just hanging out with residents and interns and dancing to music vids or on their office shooting the breeze. Like this never happens where I am.

I just started SKY CASTLE. It’s hitting a little too close to home. But that’s not a bad thing. However, I don’t think I’ve ever seen doctors do less doctoring than on this show. #ep1-2. @blueribbon

      You’d think they’d jump at that. Do they think there isn’t a fan base there? Just wondering why so many vacation there, but don’t perform there.

        Honestly every time I go to tourist area I am looking out for celebrities on vacation, especially because I see so many videos of them around, but no such luck.

      Maybe they don’t think they can sell out a venue there? But it does make sense to do a vacation with a concert!

        Yeah it’s probably that, but I know that there is no shortage of fan here. I remember few years ago Big Bang performed here, but back then I was in different island so couldn’t go. And Jay Park was here last year, but I am not a big fan. So Korean artist performing here is not unheard of. But my favorites never come here.
