Beanie level: Errand boy

K-con next week!! Yaaay! I’m crossing fingers and toes that Dramabeans will make another appearance there. Also, I’ll love to get together with L.A/L.A-adjacent beanies. We have a kakao group so I can add you there or we can find another way to PM each other if anyone is interested in meeting up next week!

        I haven’t payed much attention to stray kids but that one boy’s voice is so deep. I hadn’t thought about it before but all those famous deep voices at one time would of been coming out of the mouth’s of babes, lol.
        When I first fell down the kpop rabbit hole definitely came across some reaction videos by ReacttotheK, Dezzy March, and that producer guy.

          That would be Felix (@adieunoire @ultramafic see I pay attention)
          haha and that is true. My favorite deep voice in kpop is Bang Yongguk (formerly BAP). I never saw him as a kid though lol
          Yeah Dezzy and PD I’m excited for too. PD was there last year but I didn’t catch him on any panels. Hopefully this year I will

        I’ll spend my time being jealous of everyone who gets to see Mamamoo.

      I’m pretty sure it’s been mid-August or around there every year. The one in New York is like early July usually I think.

      Thank you!

        Thanks! I was hoping there might be a chance to go if it’s later in the year but probably not then..

Of course we have to have this part of a Shinee birthday party for @jaelegant We absolutely adore this performance. Their joy is contagious!

@jaelegant Happy Birthday!!!! I can’t believe I’m ruining my fan wall with boba, but it’s completely worth it to celebrate you! I hope you enjoy your day drinking some boba tea and dancing to Shinee!

Maybe Kwon Jung-rok was also the consultant for The Prime Minister and I. #foreverbitter

This dance is so underrated. It’s such a fun and crazy concept. I love the styling, too. It’s fairly normal (for them) but with some added quirk.

I can’t believe they have been around 11 years! Shinee always knows how to rock the stage no matter what. At around 9:45 or so, it starts doooownpouring and they become even more alive.

Seeing the Game of Thrones meltdowns reminds me why I watch kdramas. At least I only waste 24 hours to have a bad finale instead if 7 years.

@bammsie Happy Birthday! 💜💙 Here’s some Shinee to remind you to not be too serious on your special day! *throws boba and baguettes your way*

@greenfields So glad you found BAP! This is a favorite song/video. They are such goofballs. Another favorite is Wake Me Up so definitely check that one out!

There must be something about Junho that makes beanies commandeer a post. Too bad I’m not live watching this show.

    Junho is amazing. He has me at Chief Kim.

      I loved him in Chief Kim. He stole my heart there and ran away with it in JBL.

    You should join too! It’s a lot of fun! (Or wait until it finished because the subs take forever)

      I’m horrible at live watching lately but I definitely want to catch it later. Y’all will get all these notifs for old comments then lol

    Of course. He’s Junho. Did you see Just Between Lovers? I’ve been devoted since then.

      Yes! Absolutely adored him in that and I was one to join in on that post. It was so much fun.

I love that moment where you recognize this person just has to be your bias. You see that something special and just can’t look away. This was my #biasmakingmoment. I love the joy he finds in dancing.

Their fashion choices may often be…unique…but they always kill on stage. Bonus: poor Taemin rips his pants.

These Shinee men are such professional dorks. I will never tire of this video and Taemin’s hips, Minho’s questionable camerawork, and Onew’s cute dance.

“You Belong With Me” – Taylor Swift
It just hit me that this is the perfect song for second leads. I mean imagine Taylor Swift is wrong and the cheerleader is actually the one the ML/FL should be with. (Also, makes me think of the behavior we excuse if it’s a lead vs a SL)

    It certainly is! And my daughter’s favorite TS song. πŸ₯°

What a catch. I mean every girl’s dream is to be loved because of how foolish she is. Now granted this is an apt description of the FL and he deserves better, but still…

Girl, you need to try harder cause it ain’t workin’ for ya.

Well, that was painful. I’m just going to console myself with BTS videos.

I often run into English songs that remind me of a kdrama. This song perfectly represents noble idiots everywhere.

    What’s even funnier is that I heard this song from a variety show… I forget which one. It should be the theme song for noble idiocy.

      I’m always shocked when I hear English songs in variety or kdramaa. Usually it works out well and other times I wonder if they know/care what the song means…

    The song is EVERYWHERE on the radio for me!! LOL

    Thanks, Jig. Noble idiocy has now an official soundtrack.

    Hahahaha!!!! This totally changes this song for me. I don’t even like it but now I’ll be thinking of your comment whenever I hear it. XD

Well, I was going to try to catch up on MoA today, but then I see the fan wall…hrm, maybe I\’ll just start something else instead…

    I think I’ll just pretend MoA finished on Episode 15. The writer seems to have wrapped everything up pretty badly. My ending: The game is destroyed and never comes back. Hee-joo, Se-joo, little sister, Jin-woo, and Grandmother all live together happily ever after. Somehow.

      This is what I’ve been imagining for weeks.

    Don’t do it if you have work to do. I woke up this morning with severe headache. I Should catch it up last night or ever.

    Or do what I did. My husband watched it told told me the ending. He was invested enough to watch the ending, but not enough to care how it ended.

      Hrm, I need to find a husband first but not a bad plan. Have an extra one lying around? 😉

        That’s the stickler. Good ones are hard to find. I did have a brother who was unattached, but looks like he’s getting married soon. Sorry! I trust my husband and he said I wouldn’t have liked the ending at all. I also skipped out on Hwayugi’s ending too. He watched it and told me how it ended there as well.

Mourning a celebrity has definitely been a different and difficult experience. Jonghyun’s death truly affected me but so has seeing the strength and courage of Shinee and others he left behind. We will continue to do well.
