Beanie level: Errand boy

This is SO COOL and something I’d TOTALLY do if/when I’m in South Korea–visit as many of my favorite K-drama filming sites as I can!

THE Belle Epoque house is so cool to see irl, and while I had a feeling the interior was mostly a set, it was still very surprising to hear it, and also that it’s actually a li’l café/herbal medicine shop? Nice.

Lol @ the YouTuber ordering the same strawberry smoothie Ye-ji did. Something I’d totally do, too. Also funny how there’s no “classic sandwich” irl. And $100 steak? Eh… maybe, but most likely not. I’ll just take a pic from the outside, too, thanks.

Ha, jokes aside, this looks like an awesome cast! I’m excited to see Do-hwan and Hwa-young be total badasses.

      Mm. It’s definitely tough. It seems like everyone’s hiring, but it’s so hard to score an interview (which is really the best way to make/break your confidence, too). Thank you for the kind words. I truly hope so! Fighting! ✊🏼

      Aw, really? Do you currently have a job?

      I’m currently working for my dad, but would really love to get a part-time job in customer service to strengthen that skillset of mine and to get more hands-on experience. Idk what’s wrong with me on paper, but I rarely ever get callbacks from the places I apply to. It’s weird because I’m always positive I’m very much qualified for the position(s) I’m applying to. I also always make sure my resume and cover letters pertain to the job. It’s okay, though. I’ll just keep applying. Gotta hear good news one day!

      1
      1

        I don’t. I am thinking of starting giving coaching classes to school kids just as a part time thing.

        I dunno why but the market seems in a slump lately.. There are not many jobs, and I rarely get a call back from the places I apply to.. I keep wondering if there is something wrong with me on paper too cuz I literally match every criteria they usually ask for!

        But yup… keep applying! There is something out there just for us. For sure!
        (You wanted to become an air hostess, right? How is that coming along?)

          Oh, that’s cool. That’s right, isn’t that what you’re doing already? (I remember us talking about this, but 1.) you know how awful my memory is, and 2.) I lost that convo of ours! Huhuhu.)

          Aw, you too, huh? Yeah, idk what’s going on. The only thing I can think of is that I should probably go outta my way and follow up with the places I apply to, and just make myself known, y’know? Other than that, it sucks that we’re obviously qualified, but they’re not considering us? Boo!

          Yes, a flight attendant! It’s… comin’. Heh. Tbh, I’m still not mentally, physically, and financially ready for that lifestyle yet, so I’m currently working on all of that and will get to it soon. That’s why I’d love to get a nice part-time job so I can have extra money to save so I’d have something when I do start actively pursuing the FA career. I’ll definitely update you when I get closer to it, though.

            Lol you and your awful memory! I wasn’t.. I was preparing for some govt. service exams and now am awaiting results..

            Yeah, I never follow up! I dunno but I just never feel like doing it… Should probably try doing that!

            Ooh I really hope you get to do what you want.. Having a dream career is so nice! I don’t think I have one and that is why I am just flailing around thinking of so many different options.. *Hwaiting!*

          This is me. Me exactly, when I’m writing up my cover letter (or tweaking my cover letter more than like) I take what they are looking for and type it up and cross it off when I’ve included it and then add some awesomeness on top just so that they know about the awesomeness and then I get that email. What are you looking for, jerks?! Do you want someone who ISNT qualified? Is it because my real name isn’t easily pronounceable (to idiots)? Pah. Bitterness. I’ll be over here typing up a 300 word essay on the power of play in the library.

          2
          2

            Lol that is so me!!! I do EXACTLY the same! Taking in their criteria and making sure that I address every bloody single point cuz I have everything and still no call back! And my name is quite easy to pronounce and they still don’t hire me so I guess it’s not the name! It’s them, it’s not us!

            Hahha… essay or rant?

            It may have been a mixture of both actually. One of the apps that I filled out today required a 300 word essay on the importance of play in the library AND an additional 300 word essay youths in the library AND a 300 word essay on freedom. So….by the time I got to freedom it could have been part rant dressed up in fancy I am a smart person speak.

    My number may be a scootch over 7–but I certainly hear you. It really does super suck. I always check my email first thing in the morning–I sleep with my phone in my hand?–and as I’m waking up, climbing out of bed I open my email app and 6 days out of 7 I wake up to a handful (or 1 or 2) emails saying that “Dear [isa] after carefully examining your resume and qualifications we have decided to pursue other candidates who more fully meet our needs at the moment. Best of luck! Sincerely,”. And then I throw my phone and have properly set the mood for the rest of the day. I have no idea what anyone is looking for!

    1
    1

      Aw man, I’m so bummed to hear that, Isa! I feel you, too, though. While it isn’t the end of the world for me when I receive a “Thanks, but no thanks (TBNT),” it does make me wonder exactly what went wrong. Why didn’t I appeal to them? I feel like I should go outta my way more often and after applying for a job, I should follow up with them by introducing myself, because apparently employers appreciate that. I can think of a handful of things I could adjust to make myself a more appealing candidate, I just actually have to carry it out more often. But then again, I oftentimes stratch my head wondering why they wouldn’t at least offer me an interview opportunity… sigh.

      If I’m not mistaken, you work at library, right?

        Right now I don’t work anywhere–which is why I am so twitchy (I apparently sent one of my friends in a panic last week and I tried to smooth it all over and make her think I was fine (she’s a worrier this one) and ended the email with LETS BURN EVERYTHING!!–its all in good fun, right?!). I believe in the follow up and introducing yourself and stopping by so that when they are pulling up your resume they can attach a face with the name (thats that pleasant young lady who wouldn’t stop talking about Harry Potter and something called K-pop! Lets hire her immediately!) but its hard when the way the application process is set up everything goes to some generic hiring manager–like, who do you call and ask for? And then some places appreciate the follow up phone call and other places really, really do NOT.

      LOL! Seriously. She just doesn’t get it. So these two really should hurry up and become official.

        Haha. I feel like Sung-min is waiting for Ji-won to feel even a little something more than friendship towards him?? Like get her flustered to him as much as she does him? (I really loved the scenes we had with them the past few eps!) Cos I honestly think she likes him more than a friend already but she hasn’t realized her feelings for him yet?? Do i make sense? Haha

        5
        3

          Yes, totally! You make a lot of sense! I feel the same way. It’s obvious that she cares about and appreciates him, but I’ve never really gotten the sense that she actually like-likes him. She’s always just so darn playful with him and has never really been serious about her feelings about him.

          Sung-min’s totally waiting for a sign–any sign that tells him, “Okay, I think she might like me, too,” and then he’ll confidently make his move. That green light! Which, aww, Sung-min-ah!

            Kya~ i’m just so excited for these two but darn it, last 2 episodes. I hope they made the most out of it! Like, have more than 15mins of the two on the screen. LOL

Even though I’ve already watched ep 11 of Age of Youth 2 raw(!), I’m gonna post about my favorite moments of ep 9 first. (Because what am I gonna do with all the screenshots I’ve taken if not to share them here?)

Episode 9 was SUCH a treat because of so many Eun (and Jang-hoon!) moments. @mochime and I were constantly flailing, squealing, and screaming throughout. It felt like the Eun/Ara-filled episode that I half-jokingly wished we’d get, so it made my sister and I a pair of happy fangirls.

Dang, Jae-gul, that was fast. I know she just saved your mom’s life, but this was still kinda sudden because up until this point, you’ve never really expressed any interest in Eun-jae, which I actually kinda appreciated because I can’t with love triangles–or any shapes!

20
0

This was sweet. Eun-jae was able to swiftly save Jae-gul’s mom because she recognized that his mom had the same symptoms her mom did before she passed. Huhuhu. His mom’s so grateful for Eun-jae that she’s already telling her to consider her as a mom, which, aww, I feel like that’ll be a good thing for both of them. It’s so rare to see K-drama families that are both rich and nice, so I’d love for these two to become a real family, but then I remember precious Hyun and I’m like, “Dangit!”

Side note: can’t help noticing Ha Ji-won reuniting with her onscreen dad and monster-in-law from Secret Garden. Hee.

Aka one of my least favorite K-drama characters of all time. Mhm. Jae-gul knows what’s up.

Hyun’s so precious, but this chick lost her chance with him when she CHEATED ON HIM, my gosh. She reminds me of Hye-ran in Fight My Way. *shudders* But y’know what, like FMW, Eun-jae’s a strong, no-nonsense female character just like Ae-ra, so I’m not worried that she’ll be bullied or pushed around by this girl. Thank goodness. Also, Hyun’s been pretty adamant about his (lack of) feelings for her and very clear (to Eun-jae) about his feelings for her, so…

    I love this actress but I’m sad that she always gets stuck with these kinds of roles. She was in a short web drama with Seo In-guk called Another Parting, and they were so cute together. She and Wang Ji-hye are two of my faves who I hope will get much better roles.

    1
    1

      I’ve seen her here and there. If I’m not mistaken, she was on Happy Together and she talked about how she’s been doing ballet for years. She showcased a beautiful performance and I thought she was charming, but I can’t say the same for her role in HS. I hope her character won’t be too stubborn and clingy, though.

      I’ll have to make a note of that short drama, though! That sounds cute.
