    These pop-up ads had turned DB into a classic Kdrama ML who doesn’t understand the meaning of “no thank you” and cont. to throw offers at us unfortunate and annoyed Candies.

So on my usual night-time routine of going through my phone last night, I came across a snippet from Secret Romance – yes, I saw that drama in its entirety, and I am ashamed but Sung Hoon is easy on the eyes and I am vain, okay? – so basically in this scene Sung Hoon’s character was explaining why he kept her bra pad all this time. (For those of you who do not know the story revolves around a one-night stand where the guy ends up with the girl’s bra pad and keeps it in a box like a super perv).

So he says, and I quote, ‘I am thankful because if I didn’t keep it I wouldn’t have been able to remember all the memories that we have shared’ (super cringe! Dude wtf!). Anyway, so I go ‘wait a minute, why does he need a bra pad to remember the ‘memories’? Couldn’t he just remember?’

So that made me think of several things, (a) bad translation? (b) bad writing? (c) dialogue not delivered properly? WHAT IS IT?!?!?

What was the worst/useless dialogue you have ever come across? Please tell me so that I can brush this one aside and be at peace with the world. I have been up all night….

A huge apology to my Beanie chingus who invited me to (re) watch Heirs with them. I saw it ages ago. Back at a time when I didn’t know any better. I regret watching it. I really do.

All that I remember is Kim Tan (yes, I remember the character name!) slapping a mountain of foundation on his face and crying for his lady love (who as you all know cries a lot too and absolutely detests kissing him back)

        That is true though. He wasn’t as tan in any of his shows as he was in Heirs but his complexion has remained the same since then so I guess that he used too much foundation earlier.

      I blame the makeup artists, to be fair.
      then again, didn’t he have a mirror?

      and yet again, I remember wearing some TERRIBLE makeup when I was between 19 – 22 years old.

    I feel the same way. Such a terrible drama, I watched it because it was one of my first dramas and for some reason it is really high rated, when it shouldn’t. The ML bullies the FL who clearly doesn’t like to be kissed or be near him. It’s not love, call it whatever you want. And both of them are as beautiful as unexpressive.
    Had it been now I wouldn’t have finished the first episode.

      Exactly! I was a newbie drama watcher too back then so I watched it because of a ratings and like I said I didn’t know any better.

    I think this is the first drama that taught me how healthy it is to drop a bad drama. I remembered choosing the delightfully makjang Secret over this, and that was one decision I never regretted. 4 eps of Heirs is more than enough to scarred me for life.

      Oh is that secret with Ji sung? That drama was great, I could have strangled the second lead.
      Maybe that is why I didn’t watch heirs the first time around!

      For me it was Marriage not Dating. I loathed it. And people LOVED it! MND taught me that it was okay to hate what others loved 😬

    lol @ Kim Tan (yes, I remember the character name!) slapping a mountain of foundation on his face and crying for his lady love (who as you all know cries a lot too and absolutely detests kissing him back)

    that is a very accurate description of both Leads, yes. lol

      The kissing scenes were horrible. She would visibly shake. Ugh!

    I dropped this drama early on. Could not watch. And this is the me who watched pretty much everything at that time.

    Thanks for tagging me, but I am not doing the rewatch thingy. Once is too much already. I just read beanies great comments and occasionally chime in in recaps. Fighting, beanies!

    The make up artist probably misunderstood that we need to see Tan in Kim Tan just like Tan thinks he is thinking when he writes his poetry.

What up with Hyun Bin speaking in pout? Hahahha! As much as he is great, the only person who can pull off a pout is Kim Young Kwang.

    Kim Young Kwang can pull A LOT that nobody else can! Have you noticed the number of facial expressions he can make in under 3 seconds?!! Or the number of emotions he can clearly show in that time… Yeah I’m a huge fan! 😁

      He is capable of doing ayego while wearing a 3-piece designer suit and towering over his male costar. I cannot think of ANY actor coming close to that even by a mile!

This was a deeply underwhelming kiss scene. Come on guys! Do better!

Ps: Maybe HB forgot how to kiss after kissing PSY in MoA? Who knows?

The second half is Sky Castle was hard to watch. The death, the murder, the agony was almost too much to handle. But I realise why it created such a buzz when it initially aired. It deserves all the hype. A truly solid drama with a solid cast made a compelling watch.

Episode 15, 16 and 17 of Sky Castle packed a punch that I did not expect. WOW!

And this woman is my villain of the decade! Incredible!

    Pity she didn’t win Baeksang award for her role 💔 Coach Kim was def the role for Kim Seo Hyung. I couldn’t picture anyone else playing this.

Watching Sky Castle for the very first time and it is good no doubt BUT I want it to end.

I am on ep 10 and all I want is to find out what happens in the end. For some reason my least favourite character is the new writer lady on the block. She is the righteous one, according to the writers, but I find her overly nosy. Just mind your own business please ahjumma…

    I remember quite a few people felt that way about her at the time. I did not but you’re not alone.

    My advice: take a break from it. We had it doled out two eps a week for over two months. It’s dense and intense. I think you’ll appreciate it more if you stop and let it sit for a while.

      Thank you for the advise because you are correct. This is not a drama to binge

Never Twice musings:

I am trying really really hard to find any redeeming qualities in Hae Ri. She is rude, obnoxious and simply not a nice person. I hope the writing of her character improves because, because of her I can’t bring myself like her good-guy golfer boyfriend. Why is he with her?

6

    Because shes cute and because she loves him and because he thinks shes just sheltered and been raised badly but has a good person somewhere on the inside. She does frequently apologize for going overboard (but admittedly not enough). Her arc is probably gonna be a slow one…

    But from e1 onwards I vowed to love her unconditionally so that’s what I’m doing. The fact that, despite her terrible upbringing, she is able to love someone like Woojae because he is a pure puppy gives me hope that he can rub off on her.

    4
    1

      I don’t agree with that but each to their own. I want to like her. I hope I get the chance to do so.

      2
      1

        I don’t agree either. I don’t like her at all and she doesn’t deserve Woo Jae. I foresee a love triangle with the FL and ML with Hae Ri complicating things because she is jealous. She is elitist and cold-hearted and just plain horrible.

I quite liked Crash Landing….I never thought I would say it. I liked both of them. I liked that she was resourceful and kept on running and I liked that he was…well Hyun Bin…but anyway I am quite excited about ep 2 and that town scene really gave me the chills. I hope I haven’t jinxed it!!!

Crash Landing seems like it will crash and burn for me. Yet, I will go watch it and become hugely disappointed. See ya!

Working on my bean count and realising this year has been a year of the drops. I dropped dramas faster this year than ever. Either I have high expectations or I am a complete snob.

    *looks at own list of 20 dropped dramas and 5 completed dramas* yeah the snob part is probably more true.

I finally managed to finish Tale of Nokdu. Not because I wasn’t interested but more because RL took over. It was the only one drama that really held my attention and I would involuntarily smile while hitting play but alas! Nokdu did what every other countless kdrama’s have done before. Disappoint.

Staring off strong I loved the strong female representation. The warriors, the fighters the strong ones – alien at that time. Loved the ‘masculinity’ of our leading man looking drop dead gorgeous in that hanbok and not once flinching from the thought of dressing up as a woman.

Then came the middle of the drama where they decided to base the entire storyline on the most insane storyline that there was. A father, a king, wanting to kill his own flesh and blood for…a prophecy.

I realised I really liked the king at some parts and I wished they had worked on a redemption story arch for him. The 180 degree revolving of the ‘good guy’ bad guy also came out of nowhere.

I enjoyed the leads together though. I was thankful that there was no ‘separation trope’ or was it? I don’t remember.
