Beanie level: Errand boy

I thought long and hard about what to say about my first impression of Melt Me – I call it Thaw Me Drink Me for some insane unknown reason. Anyway, I have a lot to say and also nothing to say about it. Here goes..

    Enter our good looking hero with the uneven upper lip wearing 1999 pants (but not the haircut!) making serious facial expressions and showing us he means business. He does mean business. Turns out our main man is an award winning PD – don’t even ask me about that cringe inducing Award scene, I wanted to die inside- and is planning an epic reality TV show where he will freeze himself and another girl (because why not?) for 24 hours.

    And what is his credibility?!?! Our GENIUS studied the freezing process for 3 NIGHTS AND 4 DAYS!!! And he even WATCHED A VIDEO!!! This is the point where I had to pause and angrily sort out my laundry because I just couldn’t fathom it all. Yes he has a mad scientist with all the mandatory crazy hair but COMEON! As my 5 year old would say ‘STOP IT DON’T LIKE IT’

      We then get introduced to our Candy with a shot of her wiggling butt to some 90’s pop. I had given up already at this point.

      Basically, it’s bad. Like real bad. It’s not the kind of drama you can hate watch and make snarky comments on DB about. It is just that bad.

      I told my discord chingus that I will watch ep 2 but the more I write about it I believe I cannot keep that promise.

      Happy watching (don’t watch it!)

            I watched an hour episode in 20 minutes, it is that pointless. It spends a full half hour on character flashbacks that establish that he is rich and she is poor and THAT’S ALL. I don’t care about anybody, nothing matters, everything is terrible.

            Agree that episode 2 is very flashback-y, as is episode 1. But I liked the second bit of episode 2. I’m not entirely sure why. I think I just thought the cinematography was great; I actually felt sort of nauseous while Mi-ran stumbled around in the 34 degree heat in Seoul.

          Ah, okay, I think I know what you’re talking about. I’ve notice this before as well. I think it’s rather endearing? I don’t know, I haven’t thought much about it. I will say, though, that I often fixate on his nose, because I continue to find the plastic surgery very noticeable (I think he looks noticeably different from when he played Donghae in Smile Again).

            I have a bad tendency to use the same word twice in the same sentence in reference to the same thing (in this context, “noticeable”/”noticeably”). When will dramabeans include an edit feature? I would like to erase some of the mortification I fell from my a-few-too-many typos and solecisms.

        I don’t know what she was aspiring to be. They mentioned graduation & her not being able to find a job but never what she studied or was interested in pursuing. Maybe I missed it, or maybe they never bothered.

The first few minutes of ep 9 of Graceful Family is makjang comedy gold yet the background music is like someone is performing an exorcism.

Everyone watch Graceful Family. So worth it!

    Reply 1988 is one of my most favourite dramas. Not because of the ‘who does she really marry’ trope but more for the family dynamics and the close knit relationship between the neighbours. I grew up in such an environment. It is not easy living your life when everyone has their individual noses in your business but the perks were great! Unlimited food source, group tv watching, outdoor sports, shopping and as my girl squad grew up – Gossip. Gossip was there in every corner. ‘Did you hear that uncle is having an affair with the wife of the other uncle?’ ‘Is it true that that mother in law harmonie was mean to her daughter in law?’ gossip was immense and countless.

    Enter the neighbourhood Spinster. I remember when I was much younger my auntie would say ‘if you don’t eat your dinner you will grow up and become like her and one one will like you’ as she shoved a mouthful of food into me. Our Lady Spinster was universally feared. She was the epitome of haughty behaviour and her tale were intertwined into nighttime stories for little children of ‘how not to act’. Reader, she was not immoral or anything. It’s just that she didn’t want to get married. Ever.

    I am up to date on this show!! I can’t believe.
    Oh man, the fish cult is growing strong.
    Fish murder and fish funeral, With dramatic OST (I love the music by the way) – too much??

      I heard there is a fish funeral my god!!! Hahaha

      Okay so tell me what’s the deal with her dad and her brothers? Why is she the ‘sole’ heir and not her big brothers? Is her grandpa actually her mother’s father? I don’t understand it. Clearly when she was born she already had older step brothers and a stepmom then why is she considered the ‘sole’ heir??

      2
      2

        I didn’t get that part either. Her mother looked like the first wife or rightful heir. But how she had a daughter after second wives son beats me?!!!
        Guess father was still sleeping with first wife after sending her away??
        Grandfather did not think the sons were capable enough to run a business and saw potential in our heroine. So he gave his shares to her.
        Grandpa is all for woman leadership.

        Also confused by the sibling relationships. I get that she’s half-siblings with the brothers but the birth order is confusing.

        All the children, including the youngest one, have the same last name as their biological father: Mo.

        The grandfather is Mo Wang Pyo and the father is Mo Chul Hee.

        My theory at this point is this:

        1) Dad Mo Chul Hee had a relationship with Ha Young Seo. She gave birth to two sons, Mo Wan Soo (the flirty film director) and Mo Wan Joon (the second son being groomed for CEO). Perhaps Grandfather never approved of the relationship?

        2) Dad legally marries Ahn Jae Rim, who gives birth to our FL, Mo Seok Hee. This daughter is the only legitimate child and her paternal grandfather’s favorite.

        3) Dad dumps his legal wife and goes back to his mistress. Mom is murdered, pop-pop’s in a coma and the daughter is sent away.

        4) Dad legally marries his mistress and formally adopts his out-of-wedlock sons.

        5) While daughter is away in the States, Dad impregnates actress (name?), which produces Mo Seo Jin. Somehow the news didn’t get back to Seok Hee and she’s surprised to discover she has third half-brother from yet another mother.

        Or maybe Dad was legally married to the horrible Ha Young Seo, had the two boys and then divorced her to marry Seok Hee’s mother only to divorce her and go back to his first woman.

        It’s red-dress-at-a-fish-funeral makjang-y goodness any way you look at it!

        2
        1

          Your first theory makes the most sense. But aren’t sons more preferred in korea? So if the mistress had the sons Gramps still wants the daughter in law because her mother was what he chose for his son? I got really confused when she said in ep 1 ‘but don’t I have the most right to live in this house?’. This makjangness really needs to be explained hehe.

      I couldn’t bear The Last Empress. This is the same as TLE for example there was a fight scene in ep 1 where the female lead casually fights a top actress in a Hanbok store while people take photos from the outside. The fight scene is outrageous. You MUST watch!

Okay I know some of you – well most of you LOVED Hotel Del Luna – and I am here scratching my head thinking ‘did I not eat the right pill – as @sicarius mentioned’ or ‘am I not paying attention?’ or ‘Is there something wrong with me?’ or ‘have I become mad?’. Because I think HDL is in my LEAST fav drama list EVER.

What was the story here? Girl gets rightful revenge for her entire clan getting massacred by a smooth talker. Girl meet a deity and deity goes ‘ let it go, let it go’ and she says ‘Nah’ so they make her the owner of the Hotel where she is meant to live a life caring for other dead souls instead of being able to move on herself. Yet our girl takes every opportunity possible to rip off her clients to feed her lavish lifestyle. Enter young one, who teaches our spoiled girl not to rip of people and directs her to spend less. And we are meant to feel his ‘money lectures’ are comedy. Pure gold comedy. But does our princess learn her lesson till the end? No.

Why did she need CS to let go of her anger? How did he help her? Why were they in love? What made them go like ‘you know what I will do anything for love (but I won’t do that)’ WHY? Why didn’t she want to stay with him? Was she merely just using our Harvard boy?

Our 3 trios didn’t even get a ‘resolve’ up until the last episodes. They were just merely there as scene fillers. Standing there and doing stuff..

And oh the MaGo’s. Basically they are the dramatised version of the Hong sisters telling everyone what to do because they basically know how it all ends. UGH.

I haven’t seen the last episode and I think I never will – Beanie wall basically told me how it ends.

    I thought she always had plans to use him, the moment she ‘bought’ him from his father in ep 1. And I didn’t continue watching after ep 1 😂.

      So then the ultimate message of this show, along with “letting go and moving on is actually just called waiting because Reincarnation exists”, is >“using people is loving them”?… Nice.

        I don’t know why but I have been referencing a lot of songs with how I feel about HDL. Now I am thinking about “Love is Blindness” by the White Stripes and guess what? It was the theme for the Great Gatsby and we all know how that ends. ugh

        2
        1

          It’s a good thing you’re not watching the last episode because they have two teary eyed supposedly romantic scenes but because Jingoo is apparently contractually obliged to not have more than two kisses per show, they just hug and act like five year old kids, and then hug and cry instead and it’s weird and really off putting and if I was previously unconvinced by their True Wuv, I was even more so after that.

          3

            LMAO they don’t kiss in the end??? NO F’ing way!!!!

    It it clear that everyone has a different take on this show, and that the variance is particularly large… I found several things frustrating and not making sense, but I also found it really entertaining. Time flew by watching it and that’s all I expect from a watchable kdrama.

    I fell in love with MW right away, because she is prickly and traumatized and lonely and vulnerable and hiding it all behind a devil-might-care attitude, and shopping, and champagne… CS took a while longer, but his awkward kindness slowly endeared him to me. The two of them together had a dynamic that suited my kinks to a T — i just loved them together. As the show progressed, I grew fond of the hotel side characters too…

    some side-stories worked a lot better than others, and I was at times mad at the MGs as a manifestation of capriciousness of gods (and writers), but there was enough to keep me going ’til the end. It was not the best writing of the HS, but some of the most consistent. They seemed to actually have an end game in mind, which is rare for them — even if it did not always align to my perception of the story. The way they dealt with CM’s story arc was just as wishy-washy as the character himself (which was fine by me since I disliked him from the beginning, but what spoiled the story for the people who liked him). I most minded that the notion of right and wrong, and justice and personal responsibility were inconsistently handled as the story progressed.

    The show also made me think a lot about grief and sadness and letting go. My response to that aspect of the narrative is very personal; it says more about my experience than anything… it’s likely that proximity to death and loss and regret changes a lot how one approaches this story…

    Overall, again the HS gave me characters that I really love in an imperfectly written narrative. I am fine with that, it’s also ok that other people see it very differently. But I also got the feeling that some people were just thrashing everything indiscriminately, without any attempt at understanding other’s point of view. After all, that’s why we come to these forums, to exchange ideas… It’s sad when forums turn into echo chambers but it’s also sad to see people disparaged for their views. On several occasions I felt the need to share the ‘how to criticize with kindness’ rulebook again. So let’s just welcome the diversity of opinions and the diversity of the people behind them.

      I am sorry if my post offended you. I am a firm believer of ‘respectfully disagree’ and moving on. I wasn’t trying to belittle anyones views but just merely talking about my views which, as you said, is so different to a lot of Beanies here. I am glad HDL hit your sweet spot which is the complete opposite of how I feel. Maybe I do not have the same life experiences as you or maybe I think differently. At the end of the day it really doesn’t matter. We can still all be friends 🙂

        Oh sorry, no – this is not what I meant at all. I was just trying to say that this is a very divisive show, which makes it hard to have a real conversation about it. That comment was not aimed at you specifically. Take it as midnight musings of the general kind.

    Thanks now I know, that I shouldn’t bother with this show, I dropped it at episode 1 and it can stay like that. I was a bit surprised by the amount of praise it got, so I was wondering what was in it -_-!

    1

    I’ve always thought of this show as a Goblin wannabe, but the past time line wasn’t as compelling and even the little side vignettes weren’t as emotionally gripping. And there’s no grim reaper/Goblin bromance or comparable girl-mance. And when the Goblin died, it was so much more heart-rending. I also think Hwayugi had more interesting side characters. (And I swore that would be my last Hong sisters drama.) The hotel staff is very pedestrian here. I’m still languishing around episode 6 on this one. Don’t think it’ll get finished anytime soon.

      I absolutely loved Hwayugi’s side characters. This one did nothing for me. So disappointing

After 6 years of watching kdrama’s all by my lonesome, and massive eye rolling from my guy, he decided to click on Arthdal Chronicles on Netflix and just said ‘I am getting some snacks, let’s watch ep 2 before we go to bed’. Arthdal Chronicles. Who knew?

Another HDL question:

Why did PO need the graduation ceremony? Did he want it? I thought he was just waiting for his dongseang to pass away so he could go. Or was it just MW’s way to taking money? But didn’t she change? No?

1
3

    Man Wol didn’t change – she’s always going to find a way to get $$ out of her guests. But she also got to give Ji Hyun-joong a legacy by having the school named for him and letting him graduate. It was pretty strongly implied that waiting for his sister was just the excuse he used to hang around.

    I think it was also to give him a little more closure, as it was another right of passage he was denied because of the nature and timing of his death. Letting him graduate is one less thing he can regret. But also, because his identity was stolen from him so all the things that were done in his name weren’t actually his. By “graduating” he finally gets something with his name on it that is truly his own and not by proxy.

    1
    1

      Understood. It was never implied though. It was a bit random.

      1
      1

        I thought Man Wol implied it when she asked whether he was only waiting for his sister – when she was talking to Chan-sung and we see the flashback to him coming to her inn and all that implied that he was doing more than just wait for his sister. Remember, the other members of the staff are also waiting for some sort of revenge before they move on, so it logically makes sense to me that he too would be waiting for some sort of revenge. But that was just my reading. I don’t think it was done very well, but I think that was the intent.

Are we meant to believe that the full moon is ALWAYS visible in the HDL sky? Or did they explain a theory somewhere that I have missed?

    In all kdramas the moon is always full. Every day is full moon day. I roll my eyes every time.
    Worst is when the moon is enlarged to a point of disbelief and all details are visible. I recently saw a drama (Doctor John) when she took a clear shot of the moon (with the details) using her smart phone!!

    5
    1

      Hahaha! Given that the Moon is such a big deal in HDL I truly want to find out why the full moon is always on! I mean, imagine the havoc it will cause in the sea! All those constant tides and all. And also those poor dogs and wolves. So much howling….

      3
      2

        If you’re talking about the sky bar, yes. Not only is it always full moon, it’s also always night time. Like the beach in the hotel is always daylight.

        The moon viewed from Man Wol’s office is changes.

I don’t understand. Why did the Captain sword fight with her when he intended to kill himself anyway? Had he been alive and they were together he would have been the prime example of an emotionally abusive boyfriend. Goodness.

    My take is at first, he really want to be seen as a traitor/villain in MW’s eyes.. that’s why he bring his sword and fighting with her

    But then after MW successfully slashed his back — this is the part that I could never understand him —
    He goes a full melo mode
    Talking about YW
    About MW greets him as a beautiful bride 😒 and how he miss her

    And maybe.. maybe (me trying to rationalize his actions)
    after he said that..
    he felt MW began to falter and hesitant to kill him,
    so he decided to “help” her to kill himself (with her sword) so she can do her revenge

    Again.. acting like he knows what the best for this girl (without trying to understand her)

    Typical person who is full of himself.. an arrogant one.. thinking that the world revolved around him…
    Sigh
    I dislike this kind of man

        I think I need to wait until two final episodes are out to give my final verdict for Hong Sisters 😅

          I honestly wish they were just friends. To me they don’t go as a couple. Just my opinion though 😊

            Maybe.. because we couldn’t see (the show didn’t show us) how they fall in love to each other (step by step) like many other romance drama, i think?
            That’s why when they decide to become more than friends, we feel confused/disconnected “huh.. since when?”
            Hehe idk 😅

            But, in my opinion.. we need them to become lover so the conflict in episode 14 can happen

            We need Manwol who loves CS that much , for her to face that kind of dilemma

            If MW only loves CS so-so or just a friend, I do think she will kill him for sure.. because her resentment towards CM is too deep

          But didn’t MW also love the other guy as her brother? He was not related to her but she loved him as much as he loved her back. To me, MW and CS just look like an ordinary employer employee. I see no chemistry between them 🙁

@stpauligurl @mayhemf I am very satisfied with the end! Outstanding character development and that wedding twist was awesome haha! Now what are we going to do with our Fridays 😐

    I was also satisfied with the end. I’ve been saying all along that they both needed time to themselves, and I’m glad the writer agreed with me.

    Only thing I’m dissatisfied with was how easily 321 was let off. Wei Wei’s attraction to another man did NOT justify 321’s abusive and scary behavior. He kidnapped her!

    I just finished it and smiled through the end (except when 321 and clingy were in the screen).
    So Wei Wei got to version 1.8!
    We should look for another one like this. but the problem is does it exist?

      I hope Taiwan embraces this shorter drama format. Not only were the production values greatly enhanced, but I quite enjoyed a storyline that did not go completely off the rails. (See: Love Now, Fall in Love with Me, etc.)

      It would be hard to find another one like this. am so glad I did not drop it (after the handcuffing episode I was so mad I never imagined that i will end up liking CK!)

    Very very satisfying ending. Even though that 321 should be smacked and thrown to a gutter (and jail), am glad that WeiWei got a closure and be free.
    Absolutely loved their growth till the end. I have never seen such a satisfying character growth of both the leads.
    So glad WW took the time to heal and find self love before starting a relationship.
    So happy they both threw away everything and went back to doing things they love. They both needed this time.

    And finally he got rid of Clingy by throwing away his entire future in the company. That girl won’t want him anymore!

    How cute was their date. I loved their interactions, their honesty, flirty conversations etc.

    Ahhhh.. I might rewatch it after a few months.

      I just wished 321 didn’t get that much screen time. They could have ended his scene after he said he was leaving for Shanghai in the office and selling their apartment. I dunno why he got the satisfaction of saying ‘now you see me walk away’ FU man FU!

Got totally blown away watching Splish Splash Love (I know!). I am kicking myself for not watching this little gem of a drama sooner! I LOVED the soundtrack! Loved it! Now please tell me the soundtrack is not from the one I think it is! There can be two Kim Hyung Joong’s right? Right?

    There are two Kim Hyun Joongs! HAHAHA. I haven’t seen the face of the OST singer, but I am sure he’s not the other one you’re wary of (the voices are different).

    @coffeprince4eva, Splish Splash LOVE is a perfect K-drama morsel and ideal for introducing friends to the joys of K-drama. I’ve seen it about 4 times, including just last week!

    Two years ago, I’d just started watching Live Up To Your Name—my first K-drama— and was curious about what else was available. When I saw SSP on Viki, I believe I said something like, “This looks cute.”

    I had no idea what I was getting into. 😜

      The cutest! And so well done in just 2 short episodes! Why it took me this long to finally click on it i’ll never know! I must thank @sicarius for pushing me into its direction *finger hearts*

It is possible for a boy and girl just to be friends. Friends can care for each other, hold each other when times are tough and mourn each other’s losses. This should have been the relationship between Man Woel and Chang Sung. They should have been just friends.

    Honestly I was expecting them to go the route of just being friends bc they both understand each other so well but then the romance just kinda popped out of nowhere so late into the drama too. But since it is here.. I would say the romance they have is a quiet/mature one that developed over time and something they’d both acknowledged but I didnt really expect them to act on it since you know CS might have to see MW off to the afterlife. So with CS and MW acting on their feelings, I can say I’m definitely going to expect some sort of tragedy by the last episode. Since if MW doesnt get sent to the afterlife, I’d feel like it would be a cop out. This whole series has been prepping MW to move on to the afterlife and if she doesnt that’d be disappointing. Ofc I’d love for her to stay, but I dont want another Angel’s Last Mission scenario.

I watched 7 episodes of Level Up to decide I absolutely loathe the female lead. Using violence to prove a point is not a sign of a strong female character. Screaming your head out because things are not going your way does not prove you are righteous. She deserves to be fired. Fired.

It’s a no from me.
