Beanie level: Jang Geu-rae

It’s so sad that a lot of viewers dropped Perfume. This show just keeps getting better! SSR is a hoot! And Seo E Do is ♥️♥️.

Been binge-watching We Got Married S04 recently.. It’s my first foray to WGM and I skipped down to Sung Jae and Joy’s episodes. But then I watched the other 2 couples, and gosh! Why did I only watch this now??? 😍😍😍

Seriously though, I can’t help getting amazed at this. I can’t see the lines between acting and reality anymore! How can they possibly protect their hearts from falling for the other person for real? Or maybe they just let it be and enjoy the moment while it lasts?

*On another thought, is there a local version of this show? This might be my best chance to finding a love story for my own. 😆😆

    I remember Kang Ye Won and Oh Min Seok as a couple around the same time as Joy and Sungjae. If they’re one of the couples you mentionned, I agree about their interactions feeling real.

    There’s a Chinese version and I think Song Ji Hyo participated. There was also an international edition with Korean men and foreign women. Lee Hong Ki, Kim Hee Chul, Key, Taecyeon and Wooyoung (2pm) participated and the episodes were released on youtube.

      Oh yeah! Love them. Hahaha! They’re too cute for words. 30s couples and their practical dating. Haha

    Not all people were rational enough like the Song Jae Rim & Kim So Eun couple…. They knew that it was just a job, they knew that it was scripted to a certain point, they knew what the viewers wanted— they gave what everyone wanted, did the filming as quick as possible, then went on with their day (whether it be going to their next scheduled thing or just going home…), and that helped to keep their personal feelings in check

      Hmm.. I take it as a reflection of what actually happens irl Seoul. I take it as pretty empowering even (i.e the elevator scene). Hopefully, it will serve more as a wake-up call. 😊

            I thought of the Emperor whenever he was jealous LOL The writer must be doing it on purpose.

            Never did I expect a fake contract to complicate the relationships. At least, Ye Rin put Min Seok’s fans in their place and called out their bad behaviour (unlike Deok Mi in HPL).

          @mango I’m glad Ye Rin/Jae Hee was the one who ultimately decided to start the fake relationship. It was her choice and she was not forced. Minsuk actually did not want to start a fake relationship, he wanted to tell the truth. Hoho

          Ye Rin telling off the fans was awesome. It was similar to the time Jae Hee told off the fans on the rooftop 😆.

            Since she started it, I hope she will be the first to break it off. I don’t know what to think of MS and his “confession” to Ye Rin. He needs more a good sopporting friend than a lover.

            I loved the rooftop and wanted more of it. It’s interesting that they even have fans for their fake couple.

            She is tied to the contract but I do hope she is the one putting an end to it and hopefully soon. Min Suk doesn’t seem bad natured yet. He might be open about Ye rin’s choice. I still wonder why Minsuk-Yi Do hate each other. He did steal Ji Na from Yi Do, but it seems to be more than just that.

            Gimme more Yerin-Yido and Jaehee looking happy! Ahaha. I don’t know how this will end, I do suspect Yerin will eventually be a memory. Ngaaaa…I don’t want sad Yi Do 😔

            I had the same about Minsuk-Yi Do hating each other because they’re too… expressive haha. Is it a coincidence that MS got again involved with the woman Yi Do loves? I see him ending either alone or with Jin Kyung.

            Ye Rin will certainly disappear but I find it hard to turn her into a memory. The media put her in the spotlight and I sense a possible “death” to explain her disappearance.

            Oh that makes sense. Ye Rin is so popular now, she can’t just be a memory. Dang..I will be so sad when she ‘dies’.

            Maybe Minsuk and Yi Do has similar taste? Hahaha. I don’t want Jin Kyung to end with Min Suk. Min Suk can end up alone or with Ji Na. Jin Kyung does not need extra drama in her life 🤣

Kim Jae Wook is just killing me with his Ryan Gold portrayal! I usually watch dramas at 1.30x playback speed but with Her Private Life, I just wanna watch it in slow-mo. Either that or keep on rewinding just so I could savour the subtle expressions from Ryan Gold and Deok Mi. 😍😍
And I’m not even a crier, even in the most dramatic scenes, but that scene where RG traced DM’s shadow had me teary-eyed and saying “It’s beautiful!” Haha! This show is seriously setting impossible relationship standards. 😆😆

This show is giving me life. Seriously. I\’m not even a huge fan of romcoms but this show is fast becoming a top favorite. It\’s competing with my love for Another Oh Hae Young. 😆😆

This Burning Sun scandal is just heartbreaking.. and a stark reminder that these celebrities that people look up so much to could actually do such unimaginably wicked things in real life. And now I hear Roy Kim might really be involved. He\’s one of my fave OST singers and now… 😭💔

That ending. WTF was that ending?!!? Argh! It annoys me to no end how that one episode derailed the premise of the entire show – not that it wasn\’t already hanging by a thread. It could have been its saving grace but in the end it became its worst – and managed to even flip over whatever good thing it has developed over the past episodes. And then they finish with a scene like that – like they\’ve run out of time or ideas or something.. Pffft. Such wasted potential. Tsk tsk

Well at least it made me a fan of Hyun Bin? Poor Park Shin Hye. I hope you get a better project next time. One that would really make good use of your skills.

If there\’s anything good we can get from this show, it\’s that it showcased Hyun Bin\’s impeccable acting skills. I was completely sold – hook, line and sinker. Consider me a new member of the HB bandwagon. But I mourn for the amazing show this could have become. It had everything going for it – a fresh, interesting concept, great leads, beautiful locations, an amazing production crew… WHAT WENT WRONG??? Seriously, I\’m starting to agree with what people are saying. Don\’t give this writer another project please – well, not at least without a co-writer to keep her head off the clouds. Better yet, let her come up with a concept and have a better writer write the story. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

    ME!
    I wasn’t before, but Kyungsoo and Nam Jihyun had a cameo on it on the latest episode so I watched it and now I’m hooked! XD
    I really like the general vibe of it. ^^
    I’ll stick till the end for sure, but I don’t know yet if I want to watch the whole thing from the start 🙂

Re-downloading Goblin in 720p now that my HDD is fixed. It may have its flaws, esp in the middle eps, but this drama still remains to be the most beautiful I have ever watched. Hands down.

    I bought the Goblin DVD’s in HD! The only kdrama DVD’s I have, and it’s because it’s such a gorgeous drama. Mr. Sunshine had beautiful cinematography too, but it had too much dying for me to really love it.

The past few episodes sure got me conflicted. I can\’t say that I hate it, but I also can\’t say that I loved it.. I guess it just got dragged out. One thing\’s for sure – this drama would\’ve been better watched on a marathon and not live. What was I thinking? I already made that resolution after wha what happened with W. I guess my curiosity got the best (or worst) of me.

But seriously, who else noticed the sloppy editing these past 2 episodes? It seemed that the editors couldn\’t wait to finish the story themselves. Haha

There are several more issues on this show that viewers found annoying. And I admit, PSH crying almost every 5 mins does get tiring. But honestly, I get her. Her character\’s just written that way. I\’m not a crier myself but I have real-life friends who can cry as much as she does in this show, perhaps even more. And Jin Woo\’s on-an-off limp? I understood it. Based on the premise, it disappears when he\’s playing a high-level game. Seems ridiculous but if you think of how the game actually plays with your head, it makes sense. The brain is a powerful thing. There\’s been documented cases where it can create and erase physical symptoms just because it believed so. Which is why as much as I found the concept of the game fun and interesting, I won\’t have it IRL, thank you very much. We have too many mental and psychological illnesses existing already even without AR-induced paranoia.

Despite the show\’s glitches, I still look forward to the final episodes. Hope they get to deliver the ending this amazing concept, actors and production deserve.

Funny how #thelastempress can pack the whole of #memoriesofthealhambra\’s episode with just one scene. I mean, I found myself checking the video length after episode 11. Was that an hour already? Haha

I\’m still crossing my fingers for this show though. SJJ, please don\’t fail us again. Not a repeat of W, please. You still have 5 more episodes to burn. Sincerely hope you still have enough plot and not give us a haphazard WTF ending. Don\’t do this to HB and PSH. Especially PSH, seeing as she\’s basically almost like a cameo in this drama. Still hoping you were somehow just fueling up and giving PSH parts more suited to her skill in these later episodes. What can I say? I\’m just such a dreamy INFP. Haha

The laundry scene has got to be my favorite scene. Which is ironic since I initially shrugged this series off after watching the 1st ep..
But then I keep seeing good reviews about it and my sister can\’t stop raving about it that curiosity got the best of me. Haha! But the makjang\’s still a bit much for me. So I just read the live recaps on dramamilk then watched the show on reverse, and then I\’ll catch up with next week\’s ep.. Totally blaming Shin Sung-Rok for this reversal. Haha!
Seriously though, dramaland needs to give him a lead role in a romcom. Who would\’ve thought he\’d make such an adorable tsundere?

    +1000. Now I am desperately wishing for Shin Sung Rok in a romcom. Please Dramagods

This show has woken me up from my comments section lurker status. Hahaha. Kudos to you, MotA and production team!
Seriously, how amazing is this show?!? And how heartbreaking??? I grieve for our beloved Secretary Seo. His character arc is one of the ones I loved in this show. He\’s come so far from his drunk semi-reliable character from the pilot episode to this endearing, responsible assistant and friend to JinWoo. And I hate to say this but I kinda understood why he had to die. Only his NPC could somehow manage to defeat the impossible fights in that quest and had he survived to accompany JW, he\’d probably still have died what with the difficulty level. I can only hope that by the end of this all, if they manage to actually finish and win the game, that the show will pull a Jumanji and bring back time to when everyone was still alive and everything is normal. *crossing fingers*
