Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

Love MARRY ME NOW and willing to suspend most of my disbelief, but I CAN’T believe DY didn’t know about JY’s sister. I don’t know ANYONE who didn’t know EVERYTHING about their HS crush. I mean c’mon

So this was A LOT harder than I thought it would be, but here’s my finished bracket. (I know some of my choices will meet with beanie disapproval, but I’m a sucker for some pretty cheesy stuff 😀 <3)

I’m working long hours right now, so I made a bracket for my kdramas! Help yourself, anyone who loves brackets as much as I do (tag me if you post it! I want to see!) Still filling my own out…

    I know it’s not as good as it should be — I missed some good titles–it was hard to keep it short…ultimately its based on titles I’ve seen, so it falls short in that respect too.

    thats so interesting way to compare dramas.
    but how do you actually categorized them ? like how you decided which 2 to put against each other..ill be doing it soo… and will tag you too.

So beanie wall posts and stills are making me really want to watch AYHT…but i have to know…is it really a love story between a human and a real robot? that might be a little too weird for me…

    I think so. That’s why I am not watching! Too icky for me!

      I think it’s fascinating. That it is between a human and a real robot raises the stakes. Whereas in INAR (which I loved btw) you always know it’s two real people, this set-up asks a whole bunch of interesting questions.

      Like: what does it mean to be human, can there be love between a robot and a human, should we really be shipping these two, and how the h is this going to end?

      And that they just make the absolute perfect couple makes it all so much better (or maybe worse?)

        Huh? It just flagged my last comment haha! Anyway what I wrote was that you all watch it first and then I will once I have convinced myself 😊

        i admit that it DOES sound fascinating…but i just don’t think i can do it. we’ll see, though. the posts and pics are really too cute…

          Yeah exactly! I mean a kiss will not be a real kiss 😖 Any sexual tension will not be ‘real’ sexual tension 🤭

I\’m not all caught up on epsiodes yet, but i am STRONGLY ROOTING for a \”Doo Chil-sung + the veterinarian\” loveline in Greasy Melo.

    I’m behind on GM as well, so there’s a new character?

      wellllllllllll…she’s not a new character exactly. hehehe

      so far i love her. (but again, im not caught up yet)

        An old fling then? 😀
        I just want Chil-sung to be happy. I couldn’t care less about the others.

          i do really love Junho and whatshername (lol)—but if jang hyuk ends up as only an unhappy second lead, this show will be dead to me. so i am pretty invested in this vet (not an old fling…she’s a minor character in an earlier episode, who reappears and we learn she’s a vet).

          2
          2

            Her name is Jung Ryeo-won 😀
            Same. I really want to be happy for Poong & Sae-woo but I just can’t. I feel really bad for CS. Hopefully this vet girl is the one for our gangster ahjussi. Now I need to catch up on GM. Lol

If you could be friends with one kdrama star, who would you pick? Let\’s say two: one girl, one guy.

My girl pick is 100% Park Min-young. If it were a guy: I\’m torn between Junho and Kim Nam-gil.

    Girl: Lee Sung-kyung!
    Boy: Park Seo-joon!

    reducing it to a single choice is too hard… I’ll do 2 each. Girls: PMY (hehe I accidentally typed KMS instead) and Chae Soo-bin – because they are both relaxed and fun to be around. Guys: Ji Chang Wook and So Ji-Sub – because I like how their mind works.

    Kim Mi-kyung because she is the Healer Ahjumma as well as some of the bestest kdrama mothers. I’m sure we would be besties and could start a knitting club.

    So Ji-sub because he’s bit weird, and seems very introverted. So we could sit quietly at a coffee shop, not talking, and read. But sometimes we would have a long conversation about a current mutual obsession–maybe the best notebook and pen combo. I’m sure Ji-sub is as picky about his pens as I am.

    Sorry this got long, and a bit strange.

      no, i love this! Kim Mi-kyung is totally squad goals. I follow her on instagram and she seems soo cool! Your reasons for SJS are similar to mine for KNG–not the introvert part, but the “bit weird” and the random awesome conversations. I feel like KNG would be great at that, too, but an extroverted version (which is more me). lol look, now *I* went long and got a bit strange 😛

    For guy, the first person that comes to my mind is Cha Taehyun (even though he’s more of a film actor rather than drama). I can see from how all his friends treat him that he is one precious friend. I don’t mind the age gap hahah.. As for girl, I’d pick Lee Ji Eun (IU). Through glimpses of her guesting on variety shows, she seems pretty cool~

      I don’t know much about CTH, but if he’s precious as a friend, that’s pretty hard to beat! And IU! I totally forgot about her, but yes, absolutely; she seems super cool. 😀

    Girl: Kim Mi Kyung (Healer Ahjumma) for similar reasons to @egads

    Boy: Yoon Shi Yoon. Because I’ve known for years we would be great platonic BFFs! 🤗🤗

      awesome!! You and egads, KMK, me and PMY can hang out and talk Healer alllll day 😀 I hadnt heard of YSY before, but I just looked him up and he seems solid. (also, you put into words exactly how I feel about Junho: “Ive known for years we would be great platonic BFFs!” thanks for expressing that so well)

One of my biggest problems with Faith is the ending. The long gaze is sweet, but no kiss? Not even a hug? I struggle to find closure every time I watch. BUT THEN I FOUND THIS CLIP [CONT. BELOW]

    I couldn’t find it with Eng Sub, so I don’t know what they’re saying–but I can tell they experimented with a hug, tried some options, etc. And it didn’t work. And for some reason, this is exactly the closure I needed for this drama (which I really love). If I could figure out a way to add this clip to the drama, I totally would 😛 Anyway, maybe this is old news, but I just found it and wanted to share. (If anyone has an Eng Sub version, I’d love to see!!)

    Sageuks are not overly sentimental. Getting a kiss out of one is even rare especially on a more conventional sageuk.

Well I\’ve decided to TRY and save Greasy Melo for bingewatching later. If anyone else decides to do that, too, and wants a beanie to talk about it with afterward, give me a shout!

well, it only took me 21 episodes, but I\’m finally into Switch. I stuck with it out of boredom, to be honest, but it has definitely picked up and I\’m looking forward to the remaining 10 eps.

was planning to binge watch Greasy Melo when it’s complete—it’s soo good. but i also don’t want to miss the chance to talk about it with other beanies in the recaps. anyone else facing this decision?

is there a discussion somewhere about where to watch Suits in the US? viki df kocowa don’t have it?

    I seriously doubt it will ever be made available legally in the US. Historically speaking all remakes of US shows have never once been picked up.

just finished Healer again (for the nth time), and I have to say—every time i finish that show i feel like i’m saying goodbye to old friends. all of the characters—main and supporting.❤️

honestly the biggest reason i’m struggling to get invested in switch (though i am watching it) is Ha-ra’s hairstyle. why isn’t she cuter?!?!

    I’m still hoping it’s not Tae-wook. 🙁
    But Director Jang is jjang! I think he used to work for the higher ups but got fed up and realized he’s had enough. Better late than never. Episode 13 is the best episode so far.

      if i think about it very clinically, i can’t believe it’s tae-wook. it just doesn’t seem like a direction this drama’s writer would take. but i’m still nervous! director jang is so great! and yes this ep was 🏆🏆🏆🏆!!!!
