I have said this a million times but PBG is like a walking and talking warm ‘hug’. The cinematography, the ost and the overall feeling of Encounter truly matches the brilliant light he brings in! I have read somewhere that IRL he is as warm as he seems. I have never wanted to meet a celebrity as much as I want to meet him.

    OMG You have described Park Bo Gum in the perfect way: A WARM HUG 🤗 🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

    I have watched quite a few of his interviews and variety appearances, and it does seem like he is a genuinely warm person, as described by everyone who has encountered him(pun intended 😏😏) or has worked with him….
    My heart is so full it could burst whenever I see him onscreen, whether it be in a drama, an interview, or a variety show appearance 🥰🥰🥰🥰

    He is truly the most considerate, thoughtful, genuine, and warm celebrity I’ve seen. That’s why I think this writer wrote this character just for himD. He exudes sincerity in everything he does. He’s truly a special human being.

Okay my turn! This year was a pretty big year for me I guess – drama watching wise! Real life mostly gets in my way when it comes to tv watching so in my books collecting 15 beans is a record! I am a coffee girl so here are my ‘coffee beans’ ☕️

1. My Ahjussi ☕️☕️
Words cannot describe the beauty of this solid drama! One one my biggest regrets this year was not watching it live, missing out on the beanie discussions

2. The Great Seducer – no coffee beans
Who doesn’t enjoy witnessing a prolific womaniser getting his cummapence?? This was totally not it!

3. The Smile has left your eyes ☕️☕️
Fight with me all you want but this OTP is hands down the best OTP like EVER. Yes there were writing issues and plot holes but every time I come across a still of this OTP I ugly cry into my pillow 😭

4. Fox Bride Star (no beans)
Biggest disappointment of the year! Absolutely loved LSY as a character but totally wanted to slap some sense into him towards the end.

5. What’s Wrong with Sec Kim ☕️
A lot of pretty on screen. Funny and cute but it turned out President Wooshik was the reason I tuned in each week.

6 Come here and hug me ☕️
Oh boy! Heavy hitting stuff. All I wanted to do was to hug them!!!

7. A Poem a day ☕️☕️
One of my most memorable live drama watching experience! Loved our weekly shipping banters and how we all bonded together for a tiny little 🐊

8. Mr Sunshine ☕️
Did not expect to like it this much! The cinematography was one the best I have seen.

9. Are you human too ☕️
The end totally ruined a heart wrenching drama. Saw the birth of the robot beanies 😃 and learnt in good time not to mess with them 🤣

10. I am not a robot ☕️
A sweet drama with a lot of heart. Wouldn’t mind a re watch one lazy day.

11. About Time (minus coffee bean)
The only drama where I actually wanted a TOD to do actual damage.

12. Wok of Love (no coffee bean)
A whimsical start that totally caught my attention only to end in unreasonable people doing unreasonable things. Wouldnt have finished it if it wasn’t for CJH.

13. A Korean Odeyssey ☕️
Enjoyable zippy ride with fun side characters. But I truly didn’t care about the main OTP.

14. Just Between Lovers ☕️☕️
How can a drama be with beautiful? Compelling and moving. JBL landed a spot in my most favourite drama list.

15. Memories of Alhambra 1/2 ☕️
Wow just wow! I can’t wait!!!

16. Encounter 1/2 ☕️
The only nonna romance that is not making me cringe. Maybe this is what we call the power of PBG.

Special mentions:

17. Meteor Garden 🍍🍍🍍
‘Why am I watching this?’ gave a whole new meaning to this mess of a gem! The continuous ranting on rabb.it with my favourite beanies was one of the highlights of my year!🍍 forever!!!

Wait? How does this beanie beans work? Do you add in the number of beans for the dramas you have watched/completed or do you randomly rate beans to each you watched/completed.

    You get a bean for each drama you competed. You also get a bean if you’re up to date on a currently-airing drama. You add up all those beans and then allocate them to dramas you liked. So if you watch 10 shows and are up to date on two airing shows you get 12 beans. Then you choose how to allocate those beans across the shows based on how much you liked them.

Ep 1 of Memories of Alhambra and I am SOLD!!! What a fresh idea! I love it! Although I wasn’t expecting PSH to break down like that…I told my AI scientist husband about the premise and he is like ‘nope it doesn’t work that way’ Whomp whomp! Who cares on to the next episode!!!!

Never thought I would say this but I am totallyyyy on board with this noona/doengsan relationship on Encounter! Their age difference isn’t bothering me a bit and neither is the knowledge of their RL relationship! So this is what I like:

A. The scenario of a girl chaebol being a nice person is quite refreshing. Her relationship with her secretary and driver is very uncharacteristic from other chaebol driven drama’s. I love how her secretary even at times addresses her by her name. Maybe she is school friend? I don’t know. And you can also see how her driver is fond of her. Very refreshing.

B. Girl chaebol is not afraid! She easily asks Jin Hyuk out on a date. She didn’t pressure him and neither did corner him using her position as an advantage. Girl chaebol knows what she wants and she takes it in a matter of fact straightforward way.

C. I looooovveeeee how the roles are reversed. Had this scenario had a guy chaebol and a young woman, I wouldn’t have appreacited it.

D. PARK BO GUM.

I wasn’t planning on watching Encounter (not into noona romances) but I couldn’t resist looking at the stills of Park Bo Gum! And….he is like sunshine! Shinning bright like a hundred suns! What a beautiful boy.

For a world where dying is a better option than having your girlfriend seeing you in a wheelchair – I wish I had not wasted my precious time watching this show! I really really liked LSY as a person but I wished he had accepted himself as a disabled person for the world to accept him. This show could have been so much more…sigh

      You know what, you might as well watch the finale to really let the drama go. The ending is on par with the dumbing down lazy writing of the drama as a whole. The agonizing feeling of what-could-have-been will still be there but closure is important.

So why didn’t they show LSY’s face in the end? Was he not available to film his last scene? 🤔

TSHLYE ep 2
Why did MY tell JK they have met 3 times, when they only met twice? Once in the exhibition and then the pub? He even said something about a long lost sister!!! Glaring writing issue??? 🤔

    I’ve been ruminating on this issue for weeks now and the answer that makes most sense to me was what JK accused him of during their encounter at the cleaner. He was trying to get her attention… even more I guess. Because neither remembered their childhood at that point…

    It’s not an entirely satisfying answer though. *pout*

      That’s really annoying 🙁 And it seems like he sort of already knew about JG and the past when he kept on asking him about ‘what it feels like when you shoot someone’??? Did he?

    THANK YOU! I was trying to remember the other plot hole about this at the beginning and I forgot it.
    MY of the start new more than MY post episode 10 and it pisses me off because the show could’ve been so much different. (and better)

    2
    1

      I agree! Seemed like he already knew about their encounter in the past including the suspicion JG killed his father in the first few episodes when it turns out he didn’t! 😠

      2
      1

        For me that can be quite satisfactory explained with the fact that MY likes to mess with people. And asking a cop wether he has shot someone is one way of doing that. After seeing JG reaction MY just went with the flow. It makes sense. To me at least.

        I agree however that it would have been SO much better if he already knew. But it would have been a very different show then because he would have approached JK with an ulterior motive from the start then… I don’t know if I would have liked MY as much if he had actually maniulated JK.

        2
        2

          Hmm. He is manipulative alright. There is no doubt about it but yes it would have been a whole different story if he knew! He wasn’t manipulative to JK. He was truthful.

          You don’t have to like him as a person to like him as a well written and dark character.
          I think how the show started, portraying MY, and how it ended his portrayal are quite different and that is the writing’s fault no matter how you want to try and justify it.

          0
          1

            I think he was quite consistent throughout the show when it came to his dark personality. Yes he fell in love. He was a good boyfriend. Love can change people. He tried to be a good person but in the end darkness did take over. The show definitely has some glaring inconsistencies but MY’s character is not one of them.

    I also think he’s just messing with people here. I don’t think he remembered anything from this point on since when he opened up to JK about his dream (forgot which exact episode it was), he told her he started dreaming about his childhood during the accident with SA. From then on I guess the memory started getting clearer and he was now actually curious, especially since he was hearing JK’s voice

    1
    0

    No, I think that the purpose of that dialogue is to stir our curiosity, on one hand it was him toying with her and on the other MY remembers her on a subconscious level… I think maybe that was one of the reasons why he pursued her so relentlessly, because she was like a puzzle he was trying to figure out.

Kim Moo Yeong was not a nice person. He was a sociopath, did not have feelings for anyone, did not care if he lived or died. He thought people were strange and he was in search of feel anything. Coupled with his strange upbringing and the stigma of being an orphan, he didn’t stand a chance to live like a decent human being with fellow humans. Then after searching and stumbling he found Yoo Jin Kang, a girl who was his even before he knew anything about her. Jin Kang and Moo Yeong were soulmates, they were each others strengths, each others building block. I am yet to see an OTP who were so attuned to each other, they gravitated towards each other, every move they made were in tune to each other. Every touch, every hug, every kiss felt special. Some beanies questioned if we liked Moo Yeong because he was good looking. Yes, probably. Beauty rarely closes doors. But I think we all started liking Moo Yeong because of Jin Kang. She brought to us the humane side of him – the little boy who wished he wasn’t abandoned, the boy who was sad because fishes died and the boy who embraced his fathers killer to thank him for taking care of the only person he loved. It will be hard saying good bye to this beautiful OTP. May they rest in peace.

    You so beautifully described their special attachment. I really felt that JK was the goodness in MY (she was his heart, and without her he had no heart). So when he first bumped into JK, he couldn’t help but pursue her, even if he himself didn’t realize what she meant to him until later. As for JK, MY was her lifeline, as she fell for him despite her defenses and resistance.

    So like you said, even before they recognized each other, somehow they couldn’t be without the other, and on a subconscious level they knew they were soulmates.

    🙁

    I think their body forms jn the last picture and in their death scene were the same. I loved that as JG was telling MY that he and JK were so close and he took care of her, he didn’t believe it, until JG pointed out that their burn scars were the evidence of his kindness.

    I also loved the effect of JK’s touch on him. But more importantly, I love SIG’sand JSM’s acting. They really look like a couple in love!

      SIG and JSM were an onscreen couple made in heaven. It’s going to be hard to beat this level of chemistry.

        I know right! I thought the best chemistry I had seen was Gong Yoo and Eun Hye in Coffee Prince! SIG and JSM was on another level! If she wasn’t dating IRL I would have prayed for them to get together and live happily ever after!

    There are (so far) 2 pairs of couples in dramaland that I’m very attached to: my romantic soulmates MY-JK in 100MSFTS, and my non-romantic soulmates, Dong Hoon-Ji An in My Ajusshi

      My heart hurts just by listening to the OST. I know it wasn’t a happy drama from the start… but it still pains me to think about their death. I hope they’ve gone to a better place where they can love each other freely.
