Beanie level: Noble idiot

After being turned off by nearly every drama since March 2017 I’ve finally been bitten by the bug again. Do I finish Circle, AOY2, or start Jugglers and Hwayugi?

Wow, this SongSong marriage is really turning out to be like the Royal Wedding of Korea. I want an early 2000s VH1 / MTV Cribs style documentary re: just how much money is going into this.

    the wedding gown itself is probably cost fortune if it by popular designer…which what SHK wear really look unflattering(from the angle of the photo taken) to me. ‘say yes to the dress’ has make me look like wedding gown critique LOL.

      I wouldn’t call it unflattering, it’s just kinda boring lol. It’s very traditional style and that has never been my taste though.

      Lee Kwang Soo definitely upstaged everyone with that green plaid suit though 😂

The leads in Temperature of Love are really hot and all, but the actual romance feels contrived as hell…

Actors that I like sending other actors-that-I-like coffee trucks will never not make me tear up like some over-emotional mother looking at her children getting along.

I think I probably spend more time lying in bed thinking about how I should catch up on dramas then I do actually watching them.

    I’m pretty sure I spend more time on dramabeans than I do watching dramas…

      Me too! These fan wall postings are taking too much of my actual drama-watching time, as I am too busy LoL-ing at beanies’ posts, fan-girling and generally making me a happier person but then again I won’t have it any other way 😄

    I’m exactly like that, I spend more time thinking what to watch and browsing dramabeans than actually watching dramas. I should watch more so I don’t read as many spoilers 😂

      I always think I’m gonna start a drama soon, but don’t avoid spoilers, so eventually I’m like “well it’s not worth starting now…”

        Yes that’s why I just skim read through what we’re currently watching posts and only read recaps after watching an episode. The exceptions being manhole – I’m just reading recaps, can’t be bothered to watch the actual show. Age of youth 2- I don’t mind the spoilers for this as I’ll watch the full episode and clips over many times anyway.

I can’t believe I just got roasted for using abbreviations. Maybe if I talk sh*t about ppl’s oppas instead they’ll be nice to me.

      The article about Park Hae Jin’s drama being canceled. The worst comment (i.e. “you’re selfish, lazy, and lack self-respect”) got deleted of course. So did my snarky ass reply… 😏

        People are ridiculous. You keep the snark up. It may go over the heads of the stupid. But, its always amusing. Jerks!

    omg omg I just read that thread.
    HOW WEIRD.
    I mean honestly I remember not knowing what KES meant (it was in an article) and guess what I googled it. Found out easy peasy. ohh this magical age we live in.
    Sigh…I’m really not sure why people get so bothered. It seems the choices are clear right? You ask “hey what’s that mean”, you google it, or you keep scrolling. Right??

      I’ve had discussions about politics and religion on this site that went better than that did. What a strange time we live in… 🤔

    when people start calling you name or lazy or selfish, then its better to leave them alone. they are only looking for a petty fight.
    a reminder to everyone, if want to use abbreviation(or a common abbreviation that kdrama addict know) , please attach name of drama related together, so we can avoid petty fight in comment section. easy peasy.😉😉😉

    Ignore them. I sometimes don’t get the abbreviations but it becomes a thrill to unravel it! What is so difficult in asking what it means?

Nothing annoys me more than ppl complaining about a show that they aren’t even watching. Like your critiques are automatically invalidated if you haven’t actually SEEN what you supposedly don’t like.

When a hurricane might obliterate your state but you can’t leave because your classes haven’t been canceled yet.

    You in Florida I assume? Be safe please. Irma hasn’t touched stateside yet and who knows what its path will be…but she’s a comin’

      90% of the predicted paths show it coming for Florida. I just wanna leave before the highways get clogged. Staying where I am isn’t the best option.

        Definitely leave if possible. It’s supposed to hit later this week. Be safe driving, I can only assume the weather will get worse. May the Force be with you my friend.

    There could be a literal apocalypse outside and I think they would still find excuses to not cancel the class…..

      They literally canceled classes because of a football game last week, but they’re sitting on their hands while an ungodly storm is hurling towards us…

I actually like New Eun Jae in AOY2. I don\’t exactly register her as the same character from season 1 but I still find her a relatable and sympathetic character. I think too many people decided they weren\’t gonna like her before giving her a chance.

    I gave her a chance for episode 1 and will still continue to try. I’m not sure if I’m the minority or majority but despite trying, I find it hard to like the new actress. I’m not even comparing. I love season 1 too much to drop this show just because of the new Eun Jae so I really want to like her more than anything else.

    I love the new Eun Jae 😍 I lobed her in Three Colors of Fantasy and I am thrilled to see more of her in AOY2! 😊

      It’s a different actress yes, but I still feel like she’s the Eun Jae from season 1. She’s doing a great job showcasing Eun Jae’s quirks and mannerisms 😊

    I’m all aboard Ji Woo being the new Eun-jae but I’m still getting used to her new personality. Season 2 Eun-jae is more relax, less reserved, and open than Season 1. And as much as I love what Ji-woo is doing with her portrayal, it sometimes feel like Eun-jae also got a new face with her new personality.

    However, I’m already sensing some chemistry between her and Shin Hyun-soo’s Jung-yeol so I’m still kinda happy.

    I like her sassy portrayal of Eun Jae because people change. I see her being like this because of dating Sunbae. She opened up more.

Age of Youth 2 had a beautiful episode about the dangers of prejudices and fearing those different from us, and instead of getting praised for it, they get called prejudiced themselves and have to issue an apology? Either knetz are too dense to understand context or they\’re mad for being called out for behaviors they recognize in themselves.

It\’s midnight, I\’m eating ice cream… and suddenly the idea of a korean version of Dancing with the Stars pops in my head…

Can\’t decide if it would be great or a disaster.

    There would be a lot of great dancing, most of the stars started out as trained dancing idols

    … if ice cream is also involved then I think it sounds like a great idea hahaha

Netflix got the exclusive license for AOY2 so there won’t be any subs until they get it…

Are there still no subs for AOY2? 😢

    Do you know where it can be found online? I’ve been checking Viki and DramaFever without knowing which to camp out on while waiting for subs. ::

      No one seems to have picked it up yet. 😢 Not even VIU.

      I didn’t think subs would be a problem since Dramafever did season 1, and season 2 has arguably been more hyped than the first. I hope maybe Dramafever has it on a delay.
