Beanie level: Loan shark with a heart of gold

I’m loving the OST, the dialogue and the incorporation of lines from poems in this. Oh, and Park Bo-gum’s face, almost forgot that. #Episode6

      I see that too! And summer, and sun, and flowers and rainbows and fluffy cumulus clouds…

    I honestly don’t think I have seen such a pleasing face 😊 You can’t help but smile in return when he does!

@hobakky How does this look? @raonah can you read the Hangul? @wakimary I’m crazy.

    Looks good to me! Were you going to write the rest of the address in Hangul too?

    Omg ally are you sending this to doojoon?? Hahahaha this is #fanachievementunlocked! Go ally! 💪🏻 He would be happy to receive love from overseas.

      Yes! I sent him our Christmas card. I send a couple oversees to family and friends in the military already, so I thought it’d be cool to send one to him! I just wished him well, told him we were all fans of his acting and music, etc. It was pretty generic.

        You are so cool, i hope you know that. Hope he receives it soon!

          No, I’m not that cool! Just ask my kids. All I did was put an address on an envelope.

            Lol I would be secretly impressed if my mum sent a mail to her idol. Way to go!

    But what’s inside the envelope?

    2

    Try pasting these into a doc and printing it out to bring to the post office:
    Recruit #58 Yoon Doo Joon
    11th Company, 27th Division Recruit Training Center
    80 Sumilli-gil, Sanae-myeon, Hwacheon-gun
    Kangwon-do
    24160
    SOUTH KOREA
    and the Korean Version if you’d like to add it should be:
    강원도 화천군 사내면 수밀리길 80,
    27사단 신병교육대대 11중대 58번 훈련병 윤두준 앞
    24160
    Since I’m not entirely sure which English spellings/format the post office will use, I’d suggest you bring a blank envelope and once the postman approves of the address you can just copy it onto the envelope. They’ll probably even let you cut out and tape them on instead of handwriting it.

      Okay! This makes more sense. Why did they put it backwards in the first place? Now, we have this for the next two years for anyone who wants to send Doo-Joon mail!

        You can thank Japan for that. Japan’s always used a large to small approach for addresses and the system spread to Korea during the occupation era. However, at least in Japan they have a romanization system that’s pretty much agreed upon across the globe, so the only quirky thing you have to worry about is switching the order. Korean is not so simple (ex. Korea almost always likes to spell things with a G like Gangwon-do or Gimchi, but the U.S. almost always uses a K instead) so you’ve got both order AND spelling to worry about. Then to top it all off, Korea changed their zip-code system recently so there’s just a whole ton of confusion to be had when figuring out how to mail stuff there lol

Dear VIKI, thank you for changing your Ep 4 thumbnail. And I approve of the one you used for Ep 5. #Encounter #thatwasntsohard

*Nom, nom, nom* said the game whilst devouring (another?) victim. *Nom, nom, nom* says me whilst watching MoA. I’m in this one, guys.

So, I had this premonition (which I mentioned on the OT) that the game in MoA would start killing people—or at least making them so psychotic they would kill themselves. Without having seen episode three yet and just spoiling myself on the fanwall, I guess I’m close to being right? I’m going to try to watch both episodes 3 and 4 later today—and try not to go crazy myself!

Dear VIKI, any of these would have worked (as a thumbnail for episode 4).

    😆I thought the soup thumbnail is perfectly suited, as in “watching PGB’s smiling for an hour reminds me of the comfort hot soup and rice brings me on a cold wintery day”!

        Hate how it will end up being a hotposch of ugly MIL & uglier Mom politics?!? Sigh.. Really really crossing my fingers that they can navigate the angst without drowning us in it.. of all the channels I trust tvn most with angst.. so there is that.. I loved the Mr Sunshine angst – it was done perfectly! (but they didnt have mom makjang there..)

        but for now – yess Love it! ^^

    I have several dozen close ups of him and can’t decide which ardent expression to use…good thing I’m not acrecapper.

    I like the scene where he was on the truck on the way to see her that morning. He was brilliant there.

    How could I have forgotten that this young man has so much micro expressions on screen. It’s lovely to see them again. I guess I missed them.

      You’re right about the truck scene— no lines, everything was conveyed through his face. I’m glad you’re enjoying this. He’s not just a pretty face, although he is that, but I’ve said over and over that he knows how to use it, and this is what I mean.

    He needs to stop being SO FREAKING ADORABLE. My heart can’t take it.

    Is there a PBG support group?

      It’s a given, this role won’t be a stretch for him at all. He might as well be playing himself and getting paid to do it.

        i half think he is playing himself…. i mean it’s not much of a stretch from Hyori’s homestead

          He was a SWEETIE on Hyori’s Homestead. I think Hyori was in love with him after he cleaned the kitty litter! LOL.

    The dance was cute too!

    The way the girl look at Bogummy I was like, hmmm…is she with a group and she’s the distraction while the others steal his stuff. Speaking of which, that is the one thing I really didn’t appreciate about their representation of Cuba. One driver get’s them in an accident, the other driver’s car breaks down, and the Soo-hyun get’s robbed. What are you trying to say drama…?

          Nooooo. I think I could live with a rant a season? A rant a year? If not a rant then at least a few snarky comments?

            I’m sure I’ll eventually start something that’ll disappoint me. And snark is eternal. But I’m hoping I don’t get anything that drives me to a ranting fever pitch like that show that doesn’t exist.
