Beanie level: Water maid

I just realized after tonight’s episode that I do not like Hwayugi the drama or care about other characters. I just like Son Oh Gong and his antics and his pettiness and his (not really) fake love.

Since I do not have enough emotions in me here is a picture of Junho looking squishable. I need subs before I can process what to feel about ep 9.

Honestly I didn’t really get *feels* for any OSTs this year until the entire soundtrack of Just Between Lovers made me melt and now I’m listening to this on repeat. My ears are finally blessed.

    I just realized that this is already next year but because I am not ready to accept that time is not an abstract concept I stand by my original post.

    I love BumKey’s voice, totally swoony <3 and the lyrics are so appropriate to drama.

    On another note I am hoping for Seunggi to sing a song for this ost because I love all his songs too, and I found it hilarious that he was taunted in universe with his out of universe song Because you're my woman XD
    On yet another side note , I liked his longish hair in the first glimpse we got of the monkey king when they met for the first time.

      I died when Mawang started singing that song. I’d love to see the BTS moment of that shot. They must’ve had a blast.

      I think Seunggi will sing an OST. My fangirl heart cannot accept anything else.

      He looked so young with long hair. I still prefer the short one tho.

      On a different note, doesn’t he look SO HOT here compared to his other dramas? I looked cute and adorable mostly but in Hwayugi he’s so downright sexy. I swear if we can only make it through the 21 months, military does good things to our oppas.

Oh Gong\’s confession to Sun Mi is both the best and the worst thing ever. Best because you could see his sincerity in claiming the insincerity of his love. Worst because he hit her where it hurt most.

I had a few misgivings when yesterday’s ep of Hwayugi felt a little lackluster. Esp with all the bts issues. But I absolutely loved ep 4 and now I’m fully onboard to wherever the drama will take me

Everyone deserves a Son Oh Gong of their own to love and not eat them. But I am willing to settle for Son Yook Gong as well. As long as Lee Seunggi is the one giving it to me.

ARMY life is getting so obsessed with BTS Outcast that you end up not watching your dramas at all. I’ll get back to all of you tomorrow. I promise.

Just started Boss and me. Post ep 1 takeaways:
1. I need to shut my inner feminist up to accept the premise that unmarried girls are indeed failures in life
2. STOP STARING AT THE GIRL’S EYEBROWS!!!!!

    😂 one of the main reason I couldn’t continue. Those brows are a show stopper.

      I missed whole subs staring at her brows. Even had to rewind a few scenes because I missed what they were saying lol

      But the story seems cute so far so I’m not dropping it for now.

    I actually couldn’t continue the drama after the first episode since I was too distracted by the eyebrows!

Can anyone recommend me a cute pick me up drama with minimal angst? Prolly a Jdrama or Cdrama because I\’m pretty sure I\’ve exhausted the list for Kdramas lol

      I’ve already watched it, one of three cdramas I’ve watched (other being Nirvana in fire and Love me if you dare). Really fluff, I’m looking for something similar. Thanks for the suggestion tho.

    up till now Jugglers has been a real treat, it is cute, but also very witty and sneaky and all around clever.

        then I am also watching the remake of You are my pet (japanese). It has so much cuteness, skinship and cuddling even if the heroine cries a lot but it is not angst, really. 99% of the characters are such good people or will become good people that it feels like no evil exists in that world except for one sleezy bastard, but he fades out into oblivion. I just wish they´d explored some side characters more, becuase they were so unique and strong.

        1
        1

    Have you seen 1% of Something (2016)? There is a slight bit of angst in there, but overall cute.

      By the way, I would be careful with modern C-Romance Dramas. They tend to go off the rails, badly so.

        I have, and absolutely loved their chemistry (by which I mean proper kisses). I wish I had more Ha Seok Jin in dramas. I probably have watched every kdrama ever, but don’t take my word for it.

        I really don’t know, I haven’t watched many CDramas really. Which ones would you suggest?

        0
        1

          Love O2O is the only one I ever end up suggesting. TBH, I haven’t watched more than a handful of straight (heterosexual) C-Dramas, so my word of caution may have been without merit. Then again, the BL side isn’t much better. Maybe there might be better C-Dramas out there and I just haven’t seen them yet. If ever you find one, do let me know though. I’m always on the lookout. BTW, if you don’t mind a Taiwanese drama, I just finished When I See You Again. It’s a guilty pleasure tbh, but it has just the right mix of cute and angst.

            Is that (When I see you again) drama the one where she operates a hotel and he’s a business guy?

            Oh, ok. I think I liked that one. I thought there was some angst though–that seemed more angst because it straight up made not one single iota of sense to me.

            @isthatacorner yeah, there are some scenes like that, hence the whole guilty pleasure part. I don’t know. I think I liked Jasper Liu’s character too much. Lord knows I didn’t like the female lead really. Or maybe it was just Jasper. Jezze, and here I was looking down on Kento Yamazaki fangirls.

      I don’t think I have. I’ll check it out (but I already know half of my head will be focused on her eyebrows no matter how they are).

    My Mr. Mermaid was cute. My Amazing Boyfriend (similar to You Who Came from the Stars, thought I didn’t see it). My Little Princess. When a Snail Falls in Love is cute, same author as Love Me If You Dare. C-drama.
    Bride of the Century wasn’t angsty in the romance, though they did have some pretty big obstacles. k-drama
    My Little Lover. J-dorama

      Bride of the Century wasn’t angsty but quite scary to me! A disclaimer just to be sure.
      Love the couple though! 😀

        Scary? I felt the ghost was pretty non threatening there.

        On a diff note, I was mindbloen to find out that the idol sibling of Hong Ki in the the drama was played by Jung Hae In. Our Batman police from While You were Sleeping and Captain Yoo from Wise Prison life. He looso different!! Did anyone else notice?

I have never been more disappointed in a next episode preview. Angst incoming, and I see hints of noble idiocy too. I just want my Kang Doo to be happy. Ugh.
PS Junho in a beanie is my new aesthetic.

    so i glanced over your comment, saw the word “beanie” and it took me a sec to process you were talking about the hat beanie cause i’m just so used to reading about the members of this community as “beanies” LOL

    so now I think the dramabeans shop should make a beanie with the word “beanie” on it for us to buy 😀

        Just between lovers. It’s beautiful. Highly recommended. Despite me ranting about the angst, it’s hurt so good.

        Also, beanie beanies would be awesome.

        Also also, I approve the idea of Junho with a beanie, especially if that beanie is me lol

    Thank you. He looks so good in that beanie…on a boat. JBL has been littered with angst and now it’s going to tip us over but I’m ready-ish. They’ve got to deal with their scars and survivor mentality to be able to find some peace and contentment.
    ….but I just want them happy too.

    4
    1

      Exactly. They have an uphill battle with themselves. But my poor little bruised heart cannot take the incoming angst. Can’t I just fast forward to when all episodes are released (and WITH A HAPPY ENDING) and binge my way to contentment?
      I can already feel my heart breaking next week.

      On a different note, where does that boat go and how can I get on it?

Every writer should take a lesson from Just Between Lovers and Lee Kang Doo to show how a hero can lash out without being an asshole. The last scene of ep 7 broke my heart and made me cry buckets.

    I KNOW!!!
    There was so much hurt in that last scene, so many suppressed emotions!!

      The entire sequence I was waiting for him to lash out at her, for forgetting and being okay but when he didn’t I realized I was too used to people acting like dicks in dramas. Instead he just broke my heart to million tiny pieces. I will never recover.

Despite their issues (and history) the main couple of Just Between Lovers has one of the healthiest relationships in Kdramas and it is so rare to see people who treat each other as equals fall in love

    So true! Hands down! Supporting each other, confronting each other for each others’ sake … I love, love this couple!

    They might be have obstacle along the way through their relationship. It might be something to do with his violence and ptsd issue which she doesn’t know about

      There probably will be conflicts, given it’s a drama. But I love the dynamic between them, the way they are in equal footing and one does not have any power over the other like in many other stories (side eyes Black Knight, INAR, Jugglers – and basically every other drama).

Rewatching ep5 made me realize how artfully Just Between Lovers uses silence. The sequence after Kang Doo woke on rooftop is the best I’ve seen in a long time. I felt his loneliness like it was my own

    It doesn’t mindlessly stick in an song/OST everywhere. I appreciate that.

So you’re telling me that Kim Min Kyu of the deepest dimple appears in Just Between Lovers? Good bye self control, I hated you while you lasted. His dimples are more important than subs. I’m shallow.

Not giving in to temptation to watch Just Between Lovers raw is the biggest struggle my selfcontrol has faced till date. I don\’t care if Junho is killing me in pics I\’ve seen so far. I DON\’T 😭😭😭😭

          Yeah usually Just between Lovers gets subbed later compared to the other mon shows. Also thanks for the heads up about the subs now I can go and rewatch Jugglers :).

            I’ll watch Jugglers tomorrow when I have both eps. Not as desperate for it, though Choi Daniel not realizing he’s head over heels for his secretary is one of the more adorable things in dramaland.
