Beanie level: Noble idiot

I forgot the struggle of waiting for Viki subs. I’m not dealing with it well 😂

Is tvN really going to give us lesbians because WOW that scene in ep. 3 of Search: WWW between Hyun and Ga Kyung had some heavy romantic framing

Can anyone who\’s seen the new live-action Aladdin movie tell me if it\’s worth seeing? Been very hesitant about all the remakes so far.

    I really enjoyed it. If you loved the original, the vibe is different but the heart is sort of the same. They cleaned up Aladdin’s character and gave Jasmine a bit more depth. Jafar has a whole different vibe as well but it’s not bad at all.

    I enjoyed it. My friend who has never seen cartoon Aladdin before also enjoyed it. I had a smile plastered on my face while watching, it reminded me of my childhood days. Both of us went out of the movie singing Aladdin songs. Hahaha

    Loved it! Will Smith did a great job as Genie. He put his own spin on it without tarnishing Robin Williams.

    It was fun. I wasn’t expecting to like it because I think these live action remakes are unnecessary but I really enjoyed it.

    I’m in the same hesitant-boat when it comes to Aladdin. However, I’ll go watch the new Lion King in a heartbeat!

    They still have old episodes. They didn’t release when they were completely shutting the website down.

JTBC has probably had the strongest dramas this year. OCN is a close second.

(Drama that is filmed well, A-list cast, and getting good reviews)
Me: \”Hmm, looks good but idk if I have the time…

(Drama with no notable PD/writer/cast, most definitely a mess. Filmed with potato)
Me: \”What\’s the harm in checking it out?\”

Anyone know if Your House Helper is supposed to have a loveline? The premise sounds like it could be a cute slice-of-life drama, but I really don\’t wanna see Ha Suk Jin romancing Bona.

    Its going to from where i see its headed!

    I think there will be a loveline. I assume it will be HSJ and Bona pairing. I am seldom against any pairing, usually neutral or starting to spazz at this point. However, I am surprised I do not want to see HSJ with Bona either. Not the actors but their characters.

Dramas that are visually stunning but suck plot-wise are the worst. Like my eyes are happy but my brain wants to jump off a bridge.

    That was me with Bride of the Water God. Such good source material made into such a dull plot.

    I can handle not-supposed-to-be-a-plot kind of stuff, slice of life or just two people falling in love, but not the stuff that tries to be more than it can be and fails.

      Yeah that’s how I am. I will put up with very little plot if the acting and visuals are good. But I cannot abide plots that are all over the place or overdone–like way too dramatic or twisty.

      same. slice of life is the absolute best and there’s SO much source material lol
      I hate the way most dramas introduce conflict. I can count maybe three plot-driven dramas I liked.

Anyone that tells you that you\’re taking any online discussion too seriously is factually WRONG. The internet was made for taking things too seriously. Is it a Wild West of hyperbole and indistinguishable tone. Don\’t say that I\’m \”taking things too seriously\” to try to undermine the fact that your opinion on this fictional character is just wrong. 😏

Applying for jobs is the worst. Online applications are the worst. Why did I spend hours creating and formating a beautiful resume to upload and send to employers when they just make you enter all your information manually into godless text boxes anyway? Why have I had to type out my work experience 5 times now? Why does freakin\’ Arby\’s need to know my level of education? I just tried applying to a waitressing job that required 2 years of prior experience. Prior experience… for a waitress job… I just want a summer job so I\’m not so poor before I go back to Uni… How am I both over-qualified and under-qualified for entry level jobs? Why did God abandon us…

    I hear you.
    Here’s my drill:
    Apply for 2 jobs, then watch an episode. Watch another episode.
    Try to find more jobs to apply for. Have some tea.
    If possible apply for 3 jobs.
    Give up and sink into k-dramas…
    Realise that things need to get done. Start running around (thankfully the tea I had earlier!)…

    I hope that you get a job soon and that the process becomes less painful.
    *hugs*

      Currently airing dramas you mean? If so, they were hurt badly when Kocowa was formed and Viki teamed up with them. So the tables have turned on them as before it was Viki who found it difficult to get good exclusives and whatever was on Viki would have ended up on DramaFever after it finished its run. They also took a hit when Netflix got more invested in the Asian drama game, especially with the cable dramas. They are trying and I still prefer them to Viki. They have a schedule they usually keep to and I respect that.

      I’m all for them investing more into C-Dramas though. That will help bring more attention to the market.

        Yeah, I know Kocowa hurt everyone. I’m with you on my preference for DramaFever over Viki as far as the schedule. I don’t like how long it takes for subs for some dramas on Viki but I understand the reason. I was really hoping that Kocowa would combine the best of DF (airing same day as Korea) and Viki (more nuanced translation) but alas it’s the same generic subs as DF. Oh well, beggars can’t be choosers. lol.

Oof, I wanted to like About Time real bad because of the concept, but the first ep was just too slow. Too many cliches as well. Felt childish.

    I can relate. I complete 33 dramas last year in just less than 9 months. This year I only finish two, one of them already started in 2017.
