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 🏆🏆🏆🏆!!!!

woop! ok i HAZ MISTY QUESTIONS! i’m trying to be as spoiler-free as i can, but PROCEED YE WITH CAUTION. see my reply to this for the actual questions 😁

    this is about the trial. (1) why doesn’t the prosecutor already know the answer to the question the policeman said to ask? (2) why is that answer surprising? i mean, with that answer, why is that witness even there?

      I’ve been wondering the same thing. My knowledge on law is strictly limited to tv shows and fictional books yet I know that whole scenario doesn’t make sense. I’d like to say we should put faith in the writer hoping there’ll be a reasonable/plausible reason but knowing it’s a kdrama, I’d chalk it up to shitty research and poor writing. Otherwise, the drama is great!

      3

        this seems to be the prevailing opinion in the Misty Open Forum too — that the writer is just out of their depth with the legal stuff. BUT STILL i mean, im like you— my knowledge on law is limited to TV etc–and even I know this is a preposterous way to proceed as a prosecutor. aiya. anyway, i agree that otherwise this drama is great!

what’s the policy regarding discussing shows on fan walls? like, can i post questions (which may include spoilers) i have about Misty on here, or do i need to wait till the Misty forum is up?

    I don’t know either but everytime I visit the Beanies wall, I tell myself that there is a high possibility of seeing spoilers.

    Spoilers are always all over the fan wall and I think everyone who frequents here knows that risk. You should be fine posting questions about Misty. If you really want to be careful, you can just say “I have a question about Misty” and put your actual question in the replies to the post.

    4

      Ah, the risk is real. Nice suggestion with posting the question/spoiler. You can also start off the post with a warning or disclaimer.

    There’s never been a policy regarding discussing shows on the Beanie Wall–other than the understood/site wide Mutual Respect policy. For better or worse the Beanie Wall is your personal Open Thread. The Fan Posts page just lets everyone see what you and other beanies have posted. To be considerate of others, I wouldn’t post any spoilers beyond what has already aired. There may be beanies like me who wouldn’t appreciate that.

    In short, yes, you can post your Misty related content on your wall.

Also: I\’m having a baby next month (= maternity leave and confined to home for a while). Been saving some promising dramas to watch…Radio Romance, Mystery Queen 2. Any other suggestions?

    Preferably light-hearted ones (or at least NOT SAD), since post-pregnancy hormones are no joke.

    Congrats!!

    I’m starting to sound like a broken record going around fan walls and suggesting Chief Kim to everybody!

    Or you could dig in deep and watch 3 Dads and 1 Mom!

    Congratulations!!!! Babies are great, and they require lots of cuddling time during which you can also watch lots of dramas. They also leave your brain a bit fuzzy so I suggest light and fluffy.

    Therefore, I second the Chief Kim recommendation. If you haven’t seen Jugglers, it wasn’t exactly deep, but it was fun.

So…Jewel in the Palace…I hear good things…but is it a tragedy? I can handle a decent amount of sadness in the middle of a show, but I don\’t do well with sad ultimate endings.

    You’ll be very well care for with this one, I’m happy to report 🙂

    its not tragedy in the middle but initial 2 episode will have some tragedy just to set up the plot line for future characters. and rest is just struggles – fight – win the female lead character through out the drama.
    youll be happy and proud the more n more episode youll finish cause its just one inspiring drama.
    hope you enjoy it. happy watching.
