Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

One can see in the glimpse in his eyes that LJG really does cherish Ji Eun as a dear, dear friend and that’s so hard to come by nowadays, esp in the entertainment industry https://www.soompi.com/article/1248743wpp/watch-iu-lee-joon-gi-dance-together-bbibbi-new-ask-us-anything-preview

    Some of that article is misleading. The most expensive Viki subscription includes some of, but not all of, Kocowa’s content.

Anyone else wondering if there’s something else—bigger— that’s maybe being covered up by the Korean news and purposely not being reported?? There’s been waaaaaay too many scandals in the news lately: 2 reports/ cases of malicious comments (topic: extramarital affairs) this whole EastLight situation, WannaOne & BTS concert ticket scammers, Kim Ji Soo arriving to an interview hungover, Han Hyo Jin & Jun Hyun Moo marriage rumours, confirmation that Hyuna is now indeed removed from Cube Ent., ongoing Goo Hara & ex-bf domestic abuse case…..

All of that has only happened this week (with the exception of Goo Hara’s case being ongoing from last week), and this week isn’t even over— it’s only Thursday here in Canada and Friday in some other parts of the world…. Geez, what more can happen???
It’s beginning to seem like the old S.Korean presidential administration who used celebrity gossip and scandals to cover up more pressing and concerning societal issues 😣😣😣😣

    Some of the news are very perplexing and have no base whatsoever (I’m still shaking my head over the fake accusation about Na PD and Jo Jung-seok). Many other people seems to be asking the same questions too: Whether SK is trying to cover something big given how many weird news populating the search bar in such a short time.

Yeo Reum high-five-ing gangsters, who are laying down on her office floor in protest, is the cutest thing!!

    I want to hear her stories with them. It’s adorable how those gangsters praise and like her a lot. And that half smile on Team Leader Lee’s face! Seems like there’s a lots more we need to know about Yeo-reum’s past stories in Transportation Dept.

    1

      Definitely!
      It’s already a given that we want to know and hear more about Soo Yeon’s back story (we get more of it in Episode 12), but I also want to know more about our heroine, Yeo Reum. Besides her best (guy) friend, who obviously also has a one-sided crush on her (but who can blame the guy? Our Yeo Reum is a sweetheart), the background as to why she works so hard to try to gain the praises of her superiors, and that she was raised by her mom without a father figure in her life– there really isn’t much we know about Yeo Reum….

      I wanna know more…. I wanna HAVE MORE of our dear and sweet OTP every week, writer-nim ~!!!

This is the problem w/ society nowadays:
No girl–or person– should ever feel they’re not worthy of someone else’s feelings because they feel like they’re ‘too normal’ or ‘too plain’

    I’ve never heard of this site. Have you ever had any computer problems while using the site?

      No, I’ve never had problems…. But then again, I have a MacBook, which seems to have more background virus protection than PCs/Android devices 🤷🏻‍♀️

        Oh ok. I made a quick visit to the site a little bit ago and right away, I got a bunch of windows asking me to “update” two things, which I know don’t need updating. I’m on a PC though, so like you said, perhaps another type of device would offer more protection. Thanks for your response though! Certainly appreciated. 🙂

As per the usual “there’s nothing I want to watch in the current line-up of dramas’ mood, I went to rewatch (just from the latter half) “Marriage Contract” for the umpteenth time, and bawled my eyes out for the umpteenth time while doing it….

Dear Dreamland,

We need more dramas like this. We need more dramas that will tug at our heart strings and make us bawl our eyes out, all the same, even in our rewatches.

Pffft!!! We simply need dramas that we WANT to go back and rewatch and feel the same things we felt when we did our first watch.

Sincerely,

Drama fan who is genuinely concerned for the current state of Dramaland

    I love Marriage Contract! I cried more on my rewatch than I did originally.

    3
    1

      Yea, I think I cried more during my 3rd & 4th rewatch than I did originally, because by then, yes, I know how the plot and the story proceeds, but I’ve been given more understanding, more thought, and more insight to what’s happening and I’m also absorbing more– and therefore, FEELING MORE– of what’s happening in the drama

    Same… sometimes shows try to subvert all the cliches and be resfreshingly different/realistic/creative, but they end up feeling… soulless. I need a comfort food drama.

      I’ve been on Netflix all morning trying to find a feel-good comfort food docu-series to watch, but to no avail 🙁

      So accurate. Even if Kdramaland has been successful in producing good slice of life dramas, some of them are soulless. Same goes for the rom-coms which now don’t even classify as good comfort food.

        Yea, rom-coms aren’t funny anymore, melos are forced, crime & medical dramas are all the same…..

    Oh someone needs to see this. Marriage Contract was a gem and honestly I think the only drama that has made me feel the same (impatient for the next episode and emotional ) after MC would be Go Back Couple. 2018 had some really good shows but the addictive factor for sth genuinely good is no longer there.

    2
    2

      Yea, you’re totally right, the addictive factor– or even the factor to even start anything or continue watching anything– isn’t there anymore 🙁

        Yes, continuing watching is the biggest issue for me. I have hardly completed a show this year.

          Same, my drama-watching/completed list for this year has been all over the place because it feels like I haven’t been able to really commit to any dramas this year

      Agree. I haven’t had a show that I’ve truly *needed* to marathon in awhile. (Go Back Couple and INAR were probably my last ones that I’ve felt that way. Probably JBL if I hadn’t live-watched). Half the time I’ve been like “is this episode done yet?”

      3
      2

        Yea, I just realized– I haven’t been able to fully finish a drama ever since finishing “Tempted”, and that was way back in March… And even that drama was a pain to get through 🙁 Every drama I’ve started since then has not been completed past episode 5 or 6

        Exactly the ffd key is my buddy. They were a few posts regarding King2hearts and Misaeng these past few days and I was reminded how good those shows were. I wonder if its the cliffhangers, better stories or what but I have no urge to watch any of the current or even future shows. Probably the only one I am hoping to be better is Memories of Alhambra. I also wonder What drama would finally bring the Healer craze back to DB? While there have been shows that were popular on DB, there was still none like that.

        1
        2

          I’m not even interested in “Memories of Alhambra”, and I admit, it’s because of Park Shin Hye…. Something about her has always rubbed me the wrong way XD I DID manage to finish “Doctors” though XD

          Yea, nothing that has already finished airing, or will be airing in the upcoming months to wrap up 2018 interests me T….T

            The good ol’ days of healthy debates, discussions, ship wars, and fangirling here on Dramabeans 😀

            There were certainly a few:
            – Just Between Lovers
            – Healer
            – BTIOFL
            – APAD
            – Liar and His Lover
            – Come and Hug Me
            – Are You Human, Too?

            Those are the most ‘recent’ ones I can think of

            1

          I wonder too. I was talking to some beanies and they were kinda putting down the whole Healer craze, but I was part of that and it was awesome. It wasn’t that it was objectively the best kdrama ever, but it was a solid drama that stayed true to itself from start to finish. But, really it was all about the environment the beanies created that made everyone join in. It was a mix of anaylysis and fan-girling/boying that hasn’t happened to that extent in awhile. (Also it was before the like button and fan wall so that has a lot to do with it too). It just hit the right feels. Liar and His Lover and BTLIOF have come the closest, but there were still such divisions in those (ppl making a deal about like-baiting for LAHL and the ending for BTLIOF).

3. Jang Nara & Choi Jin Hyuk reuniting in a drama 😍😍😍

PLEASE LET HIM GET THE GIRL THIS TIME… *ahem* Sorry… The handling of their relationship in the Korean version of “Fated To Love You” just left a lot to be desired and I’m still salty about it, not gonna lie 😅😅😅😂😂😂

        Quote from Hwayugi ep1 recap by Javabeans:

        “Patriarch guesses that all of Mawang’s hit stars are monsters of some kind. Knowing that PK is one, he guesses Jang Nara is too. (“There’s no other explanation for her not aging!”) (Mawang admits to considering surgery to age her up, LOL.)”

    I never watch her work after Bright Girl’s Success (my first Korean drama ever before real life took a toll on me and forgot about korean drama till 7-8 years later) so i guess i look forward to watch her again. She still as cute as ever

Not only did she win her first accolade as ‘actress Lee Ji Eun’, but she won the BEST ACTRESS in a Miniseries award against big names and her much older sunbaenims such as Lee Bo Young (nominated for “Mother”…. which also was a drama that reached international exposure this year at a major international film festival), and Lee Sun Ah (nominated for “Shall We Kiss First.”)…..
Like… WHAT?????????????????????
And the girl is doing all of this with such humility, grace, beauty (inside and out), and is now heading into the end-of-the-year craziness as ‘singer IU’ with her song “BBIBBI” which I feel is her making a graceful nod to her haters (WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD/COULD HATE HER??? WHO???), but also telling her fellow artists, like, “Hey, I got your back”, especially with the death of Jonghyun shaking up the k-pop industry so much last year and FINALLY giving everyone a wake up call… I still don’t know how she was able to perform—and perform SO WELL—with so much love, and heart, and soul during one of the year-end music events (don’t remember which one, sorry), which was also the first live show performances she did after Jonghyun’s passing, considering that he was one of her closest friends #beauty #grace #professionalism

        Soompi is where most of the die hard KHJ fan girls are. You should see his thread on their forum. They have had some bad comments but usually more positive than negative. I think he’s a pretty disgusting human and a poor actor.

          I’m going to refrain from commenting about him as a person/humabeing because I don’t know him personally and what the media writes about/the articles being written may or may not be only a portion of what really happened (I know this for a fact, because I’m in the Communications/PR industry and I know that media play to garner sympathetic audience—or in this case, a lack there of—is a real tactic that media outlets use … All I’m saying is how surprised I am at how civil the comments seem to be on a KHJ article because it’s been months since it’s been so quiet in the comments section of a KHJ article 😅😅
