Beanie level: Eunuch in drag

I’d like to believe that Yeo Jin Goo ad-libbed that earring line and IU can’t help breaking character and laugh at it. Seriously feels so genuine. XD

YEO JIN GOO SSI! IDK whether to swoon or to laugh at his goofy smile paired with the context. It’s times like this where I’m glad I’m not a Noona fan. I’m younger XD Heard it was his b’day yesterday

As a mean of procrastination, I\’m editing a bromance music vid that I doubt I\’d share including MCU bros and Kdrama bros. I\’m pretty proud of it cuz I\’ve never done it before. I am not proud that because of that, my procrastination (got as assignment due tmr and another in three days) game is even stronger. Oh well. ๐Ÿ˜›

Hey, y\’all! I got a question.
What does your profile name mean to you? Is it just your name? Your bias? Is there a story behind it?
Mine simple means \”weird kid\”, the x replacing ak in Budak (kid) XD

    That’s a really cute profile name! Mine is to do with nature. I love the idea of idling in a greenfield somewhere, a quiet space, away from the hectic city life. It also has to do with my career when I made the account – an environmental law – and the fact that despite all the green in my dreams, I have neither an open natural field to lie in nor any green (money) to roll in.

    @fatcat007 once asked this question too. ^^ Her thread may additionally have replies from some older beanies I think, who no longer participate actively.

    Your profile name is really creative! My username (sensationalfantasy) was actually because I was a hardcore SF9 stan back when I created this account. It took me a long time before I changed my profile name to liar song and I think it was the time when AOY2 was about to air. I just relate to Song Ji-won so much and she was actually the reason why I, a serial lurker on the DB community, started posting on the fan wall: to gush about her and AOY2.

    Your post made me think that a weekly Get To Know The Beanies would be so much fun! We can play games (like the ones people do on Twitter) and do some fun activities!

    Oh boy this again.
    Okay.

    Sicarius comes from the Latin for hitman or assassin (literally, “dagger man from sicae meaning dagger).
    Five years ago I had to come up with a title for a screenplay based on one of my main writing projects about, you guessed it an assassin. Then I became an admin on a facebook page and chose this as my online moniker.
    It has since become an actual irl nickname as well from the people who knew me first as Sicarius, or Sic (which also means thus in Latin, quite conveniently). If I change my handle it will pretty much always have Sic in the title.

    Queen of Melonia came about when… well… here: http://www.dramabeans.com/2019/05/dramas-and-food-from-rants-to-royalty/

      Sicarius is also a genus of sand spider native to South Africa, the name of some Jewish Zealots in the early first millennia, the name of Spacemarine Captain Cato Sicarius from the game Warhammer: Dawn of War, and the name of a character in the Emperor’s Edge book series by Lindsey Buroker. But it is for it’s Latin meaning that I, and my own writing project, is named.
      My profile picture is a chibi of the main character from said writing project drawn by a friend of an ex friend.

    HA! My name is pretty self explanatory! The only thing not clear would be that I have a really big (almost unending) list of oppas! hahahah!! And yes oppas can be moved out of the list as well! I always thought that I should make a twin identity with unniefangirl!

    I am a big fan of badass female characters! RenOIshi is basically the roundabout character name of the assassin, played by Lucy Liu, in Kill Bill (itโ€™s ORenIshi in the movie) plus it actually has my real name on it…sort of 😜

    And of course my โ€˜realโ€™ handle name is coffee prince because it is centred around the badass Eun Chan who I will love forever.

      A common thread Iโ€™ve seen around our beanie community is that we all love assassins and/or aspire to be one. (Unless youโ€™re Sic and youโ€™re actually one….in name. I canโ€™t vouch for if sheโ€™s actually one in real life.)

      Anyway, I just love how all of us love
      badass female characters!

    Itโ€™s from the word infamous, but changed โ€mousโ€ to myss (miss) to be female, so it is infamyss. 13 was a prefix I added a decade ago, back when SM wanted to add a 14th member in the group. Almost all ELF on Soompi who had qualification to change their username (I believe you had to have a couple of thousand posts) added a 13 prefix to their username. Now I donโ€™t support only13 anymore, I grew up and learned that it was just a number. I now support all Super Junior members who work hard in the group, 9 of them currently.

    Anyways Iโ€™ve been using this username for so long that it just feels weird to switch back to infamyss. So 13infamyss it is! ๐Ÿฅด

    When I created my account, my favorite female lead was Hong Ra On from Moonlight Drawn By Clouds. I just left out the family name and tacked on the Ah 🙂
    The other part is because I saw GOT7 on July 6th 💚 I’ve been thinking about changing it to RaOnAh misses GOT7 though 😭

    I can relate to yours. Mine is a nod to the phrase “shit happens”, but I wanted it to be positive and more shipper-like. Plus, love, crushes, relationships, etc. can happen even when you don’t expect it.

The Korean club at my school hosted this cute little event where they serve us Korean fried chicken and put on the movie Innocent Witness. I absolutely loved it. Both the movie and the “KFC”. I needed more, dammit. 3 wasn’t enough. I sat next to and talked to this cute Japanese boy in which the brief conversation went something like:
“Are you Korean?”
“No, I’m Japanese.”
“Oh, cool.”
“It’s because of the nice skin, isn’t it?”
“Well, actually cuz your name sounded a bit Korean.”
Ha. Disclaimer: I forgot his name. Of course, I wouldn’t have talked to him or anyone in that room (except for my best friend who came with me) if they hadn’t introduced themselves to me first. I was surprised that people WANTED to talk to me.
Anyway, Innocent Witness. Please, watch that. I have an autistic brother so I understood to an extent why the young girl acted the way she did. It brought me to tears on numerous occasions and even delivered a lot of shock factor in court scenes.
I feel like I’m just babbling at this point so yeah, thanks for reading till the end. Bye.

    1) You have a Korean club at school?? Wow!
    2) I also have an autistic brother. I donโ€™t like watching movies about the topic because they make me feel depressed, and usually they show cases of people that were โ€œcuredโ€œ or learned to communicate.

      surprisingly, watching movies like that DOESN’T make me feel depressed. If anything, I realized that the brother I have is one of a kind and they taught me to embrace him as he is and treat him better (cuz I know I’ve been a poor sister from time to time).

    I have mixed feelings. So much is wrong with it, but it finally held my attention around episode 7. )I’ve fast forwarded through much of the suffering and the dancing.) How much do you love the actors? I don’t know if it’s worth it yet.

    3
    1

      Yep, it’s been a mixed-feelings ride. My take on it was:
      -Ep 1: Not for me.
      – Ep 2: Oh, this I like!
      -Ep 3-6: Zzzzzz convoluted politics. Dropped. Picked up again. Fast forward.
      -Ep 7: Hello, what’s this?
      -Ep 8-10: OMG WHY IS THIS ENDING NEXT WEEK?!!

      I can’t say that it will end well because ep 1-6 dragged so much that there might not be time to develop the story well, and Part 3 airs in September… I’m not looking forward to the wait.

      Conclusion: watch ep. 1-2 and skip to the beginning of 7. There is a 3 min. recap of Part 1 (ep. 1-6) there and that’s all you need to jump in at ep. 7. That’s my opinion, spare yourself the pain.

ALML ep 10
Well, it’s out there. You’d expect something bad to happen when they took time to say “I’ll be back” and there’s only 5 minutes left of the ep. The falling scene felt poorly edited but hey, at least she knows now. That’s a point from me. But the preview sounds pretty unpleasant.
The scene where YS comforted Dan stole my heart. But I’m starting to see more and more now the difference between SHS’s acting and KMS’s acting (based on Beanies’ comments). He really doesn’t match her standard.

I want Dan\’s spunkiness and goofiness back. I miss it so much. But OOH that kiss.

8
2

    I was waiting for that kiss, but the more I think about it, the more awkward it seems to me. If you look at their feet, they’re standing at least a foot apart, and he’s leaning way over to kiss her. I don’t know if it was deliberate or not, but it really expresses the fact that there’s still some distance between them, namely Kim Dan’s secrets. Just comparing to the hug at the end of SLOMS, where DMI and JGH have completely reconciled and confessed, and there wasn’t an inch left between them.

      It felt very awkward, but the way you interpret it kinda made me laugh cuz I’ve always thought of Kdrama kisses as usually being that awkward until they’re not (e.g. Park Bo Gum and Song Hye Kyo in Boyfriend). I’m not laughing at YOU, tho, it’s an interesting way to think about it.

This week’s ep of ALML was a huge improvement from last week’s. Even though they spent a large portion of it apart, he got to pursue his strange dreams and she’s realizing how much she loves him.

    I quite frankly adored this episode because I dig this kind of angst. That dance scene was BEAUTIFUL

    My two issues are (1) I still don’t know how this God stuff works and what Sunbae Hu’s role actually is. It keeps getting murkier by the episode and I don’t think they’re going to fully explain it. (2) I very much hope we’ll get to see Dan and Yeon Seo love each other together just as much they do when they’re apart. Because then…what’s the point

    Yes and Yes again @Bdxpelik! The last episode was all about love – and simply being there was enough.
    I will admit that I cried a LOT during this episode.
    But I also cheered when Yeon Seo stood up for herself every time.
    Still I’m confused about the head angel and what his story is..

    but that dancing…. was wonderful!

      I loved that she was on board at first with Kang Wooโ€™s Giselle, but after realizing her own feelings, falling in love with Dan despite the many times he broke her heart…. she cannot loathe Dan. How can she ever? She loves him so much.

      Yeon Seoโ€™s feelings for him run deep, her feelings for him changed her to become The bigger person she is now, and this is breaking me more and more.

      Also this…. writer… lol she made Giselle about Yeon Seo and Dan! With Dan being the trailer that Giselle fell in love with. LOLOL

      But we paralleled Giselle with Yeon Seo and Kang Woo lol

    I didnโ€™t understand Halmoniโ€™s story??!! Who was pretending to be who? And why did Angel Noel disappeared for 30 years then came back?

    0
    3

      I think that the Halmoni was blind when she met the Angel- and though he wasn’t her real husband she accepted him and he LOVED her. I don’t know about the coming back after 30 years part – but the point was that the time they spent loving each other was what mattered.
      Also, she knew he was an angel somehow.

      3
      0

      I think her husband had died thirty years previous to when Angel Noel was assigned a mission with her. The Halmoni originally mistook Noel for her husband miraculously returning to her after 30 years because she was blind. I think Halmoni may have let people assume that Noel was her husband, even when she knew he was actually an angel, so that may have been why the people working at the home thought her husband disappeared without a trace 30 years ago and then returned out of nowhere 1 year ago.

      2
      1

        Yes, I think that’s exactly right. Oh gosh, it broke my heart when Dan mourned for her. It’s these little stories in dramas that steal my heart. @brownieoholic I don’t expect them to explain everything either. But I’m just going with the (turbulent) flow of the story. Even if it makes very little sense. Mm, whatever.

      Thanks @stpauligurl @hobakky I rewatched after reading your guys’ post and I think I understand it better now. So I`m guessing he came to celebrate the remaining days of her life, and then somehow he ended up prolonging her life, prevented her from dying the natural cause because he fell in love with Halmoni. Halmoni said her angel was no monster because he showered her with love, and that I guess made Dan reflect on his actions and what could/might happen to him and Yeon Seo……

        Thanks for these thoughts. Somehow this writer has managed to write about love in such a beautiful way.
        I hope at some point she explains the business of killing angels who fall in love.
        This episode and the resulting discussion here made it even better for me.

ALML ep 4:
OHOHO things are getting INTERESTING. The surprises they manage to squeeze in 5 minutes is great! A “Thank you” from Yeon Seo?? Wah. Based on the preview, I donโ€™t think Dan knows what a kiss like that means for humans. And Ji Kang Woo… wow… could he be an angel of darkness? Was that her doppleganger?

    Omg! Didn’t catch the doppelganger thing ‘coz my screen’s too dark. 😂 But yeaaa, based from your screenshot, it’s Yeon Seo’s face! Wow! That’s why he’s so obsessed with Yeon Seo. 🙊🙊🙊
