Beanie level: Entertainer-in-training

I need to watch Hogu’s Love, been meaning to for a couple years now.

    It’s quite good, so you really should.

    Highly recommend – it’s one of my personal favorites. It’s somehow both light and fluffy and also has it’s serious moments and handles several taboo topics pretty well (for a drama). I also just love the male lead – I already loved Choi Woo-shik but he really proved he has the ability to carry a story here.

      Mine, too! The squid scene is still one of my all-time favorite scenes, I don’t think anything can beat that!

        I just about died laughing at the squid scene – that and the later one when the second male lead gets drunk too. Everything about this drama was fun, even if they could have done slightly better in their treatment of one or two topics, I still think it did better than most at the time.

    I don’t know… I have really mixed feelings about Hogu’s Love.

    For 15 episodes I thought it was brave & awesome and then the resolution to the story of one of the side characters left a bitter taste in my mouth that destroyed some of the love I had for the drama.

    I agree 100 percent. From Heirs throwback watch and recaps to completion of azzo’s cute stuck on you to YY’s toothpicks, everything was great.

What a satisfying conclusion to @azzo1’s mini-drama!!! I had my popcorn cuddled next to my husband. Perfect!!!

    Thank you, I guess, for enjoying my mini-drama!
    Really, though, this made me laugh!

This is the first time I’ve seen a Hyun Bin interview and I just can’t believe how different he is and how he looks like 10+ years younger than what he is.

    Did it not chart when it was originally released? Reverse charting now? Can this even be considered reverse charting? Reminds me of N.Flying and “Rooftop.”

      This is the highest its been, ever. Even when it was released, it didn’t get this far on the charts.

        Which is weird because it’s a good song. Let’s hope is goes real high this time.

For my untamed Beanies. I didn’t write much on the fan wall here, but did tweet this out on how much I did enjoy this wuxia…

Guess what day it is! It’s RDTK2 day! The premier! I’m hoping it’s good. The original RDTK was the first DB recap I participated in, so it holds some sentimental value for me!

    I never watched season 1 but I watched the first ep of season 2 and I liked it! Dr Kim’s character is everything I need.

      But only 1/4 subbed on Viki! Where did you see it? I only watched the first 10 minutes, but it has the same feel as the original! I love it already!

So my brother just got married 2 days ago, and my sister almost spread a kdrama sized rumor! And his texting skills rival my DB commenting ones (I.e. typos vs autocorrect). We must be related!

    AhhhhHAHAHAHAHA thank you so much for the big laugh! I did not see “cold” coming 🤣🤣🤣

      Texting has never been his strong suit. I never text my brother. It takes him a year to respond and when he does it looks like this!

Just realized that I started the year with a Hyun Bin drama and I’ll end the year with a Hyun Bin drama.

    During Crash Landing on You, I said to myself, “Damn, I missed Hyun Bin on my Saturdays and Sundays.” 😍

Well, this is a first. I received a bottle of wine and a Christmas card from the stray cat we feed. Turns out he’s not really a stray! So, from Bombay “Bogummy” Spooky Kitty and us, Meowy Christmas!

I think Crash Landing on You is a winner. And the Switzerland post script scene. Pretttyyy. And I can watch the fake fiancée trope ALL DAY! Bring it on!

    I don’t want to get too excited yet but . . . yeah! I think our worst fears will come to naught. 🤞🏼 What a relief.

      It can crash and burn, but their chemistry is already better than Alhambra. Good chemistry goes a long way with me. And Binnie looks good in uniform, I can’t deny that.

        Agree with this 1000%. A good rapport between the leads can sometimes turn a completely average show into a winner for me (Strong Women Do Bong Soon and Suspicious Partner fall into this category for me).

    Rich chaebol meets hunky military man, who then pretends to be her fiance in order to protect her? What’s not to like? =D

I somehow ended up with 10 beans this year…and 2 cdrama beans as well. That’s the most I’ve ever had. It would seem I’m not working enough.

    Or you exercised more than you thought?

      That’s a great way to look at it! I should look back and see how many dramas I watched while running vs just watching. The Untamed: I watched the majority on the treadmill. I dropped IU’s drama, but I got through maybe 5 episodes on the treadmill exclusively. Reach of Sincerity was mostly running as well. Rookie Historian too and He’s Psychometric. That’s actually about right. I did run more this year! Thanks! I love beanies!

These are my favorite songs (according to Spotify) of 2019. There are more than just Highlight and Day6! Lol. I’m quite liking the playlist though. Share your favorite Spotify songs of the year! The surprises on mine: The Rose, Sunmi, and FTIsland).

Just read this interview with Jang Hyuk, just after he was done filming MY COUNTRY. What an introspective guy. @pakalanapikake, @wishfultoki, @kiara, @msrabbit

    Thank you @prettysup and @ally-le <3.

    When Yi Bang-won's name is mentioned, Jang Hyuk comes to mind.

    With his reputation and experience as an actor he is still so passionate and dedicated just like Kim Yeong-choel and Ahn Nae-sang. I am so glad that Se-jong and Do-whan were able to work hard alongside their idol. A lot of actors don't get that opportunity.

    The biggest draw for MY COUNTRY was this amazing talented and dedicated cast (young and old) and PD Kim. Incredible job from beginning to end.

    He really just seems like a…alright dude. Like, he can leave the characters he play at work and never brings it home.

    Thank you for sharing this! He indeed got what he wanted with his pathetic ending on the throne. Great acting.

    Thank you for tagging me. Bang Won is my favorite character of Jang Hyuk after Dae Gil. I always appreciate actors who are dedicated and who works hard to improve despite having long history in the industry. He is such an easy going guy in real life too from what I’ve seen of him in reality show. 🥰

    Thank you. I love a music rec. I like his voice, that bit of husky to that higher note. But you left that comment about his voice on my Dylan post. I love Dylan’s voice and his way of phrasing, but it is unique to him. So, when I read that I was preparing for a Kprean Bob Dylan….I didnt know what to expect. It took me a moment to realize that was not what I was hearing. 🤣
