Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

It’s so cool to see this song done in Korean and other languages. I would love to see Anastasia on Broadway. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years since the movie though. 😮

    I love this!!! “Anastasia”–and it’s OST– was and still is one of my favorite animated movies outside of Disney and Studio Ghibli

    First of all I love Anastasia. Screw historical accuracy, it’s beautiful.
    Second of all- I have such a thing for animated movie OSTs in other languages. I Won’t Say I’m In Love, in Greek, from Hercules?? ❤ ♥❤ ♥❤ ♥❤ ♥❤ ♥
    And the medleys are all great too.

        I could never watch Frozen again but the international medley of LetIt Go is still one of my favourite covers. (Although my favourite cover is the Piano guys Vivaldi remix)

    Disappointed at the Filipino representation because 1) He’s a guy. 2) He’s actually Filipino-American. 3) He sang it in English. No offense to AJ Rafael but I wished otherwise.

      I thought that was odd. I had no idea who he was so I assumed there was some special reason he was in it, but that is disappointing if he was supposed to be the Filipino rep.

Omo omo omo I don’t know what to do with myself. Love: Se-hee’s killer stare, Jung-min’s advice to an ex, Su-ji’s punch (and CEO Ma’s support after), and Ji-ho’s forthrightness. Love-Hate: The wait until next Monday. I want it to be longer so I don’t have to say goodbye so soon, but I want it to come faster to see what happens next.

    You should.
    Cos after that, 16 second preview will never be long enough.
    At least you have 10 minutes + 16 seconds on saving till next Monday.

I love the translators that stalk TVN’s YouTube page! Thank you! I feel bad for TVN getting complaints since they upload them pretty quicky, but it’s never fast enough when you’re as thirsty as Ji-ho.

For K-pop Day on DB
I’m kind of mad at myself that I’ve slept on MFBTY (Yoon Mirae, Tiger JK, and Bizzy). I was going to post something else from them (“Clap” with 1Million), but ran into this and just wow. I love the lyrics of their songs and the messages they share. Tiger JK and Yoon Mirae are couple goals for sure, and I can’t believe their son is already so big. I remember the little kid’s laugh in “The Cure.”

      I haven’t though I really want to. I’ve just been watching the random clips that are English subbed on YouTube. I love the line up though.

        It’s really funny in a super random way. And Hongki + Seungkwang is the funniest bickering duo ever 😛 The line up really is great! I started watching just for HK and LSG, but ended up loving all of them together. I just hope that JR will start showing more of his variety potential soon, I KNOW he’s got it, he’s so funny in Nu’est vids. He seems to be super shy, so it’ll hopefully happen when he gets more familiar with his hyungs.

        The only member I’m not too fond of is the recent addition of Chun Jung Myung. Love him as an actor, but guy is so awkward it hurts lol, it’s even worse than YSY in the beginning. Really have no idea what they were thinking there, but at least the rest of the cast is so good it doesn’t matter much.

        (Btw if you do decide to watch – there are two different subs, one early and one late. The later ones are much more detailed and accurate)

          It seems like a fun show. One of the clippers I saw was Hong-ki trying to steal some food without anyone noticing. He succeeded in giving some to the guy next to him (I knew him but now can’t think of who it was), but got caught when he took some. Everyone is yelling at him while the guy he gave some to first just sits there all innocently. lol

          1

            That’s from ep 2, the first ep those two are in. Hongki’s temper setting him off is always fun to watch haha, he got so mad at being only the one blamed kkk. The guy he fed who just kept quiet is Jonghyun (/JR), the little sneak 😛 He’s usually quite the precious maknae on the show and him and Hongki are both contenders for the pabo-character haha *waits impatiently for savage JR to show up* *and for his silly dancing to commence*

          I have a Nu’est CD but I have no idea who is who. I really should research them even though they aren’t the full group anymore I don’t think…

          That sounds about right for Hongki. He’s such an energetic puppy that his brain just goes all over the place and he really rides on his emotions.

          1
          1

            They’re still a full group, Minhyun is just currently promoting as part of Wanna One, so the other four are promoting as the unit Nu’est W until then. I started getting really into their stuff this week, they’ve got some good self-composed songs and are really funny.
            If you’re interested, this might help know their names a bit (their “an unhelpful guide” was also a lot of fun): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZdo4h5HUj4&t=8s (it starts 8 seconds in for some weird reason lol, but can just be rewinded)

            Lol energetic puppy seems very fitting. Did you see that interview with FTI where Jaejin said his love was like fireworks? Quickly blows up like crazy and then fizzles out hahahah 😂

          Ooh cool. Glad to hear that. I looove “Face” and “Action”. Check out those if you haven’t yet.

          Hahaha I haven’t seen that interview but that doesn’t surprise me. I love when they rag on each other. There’s this ongoing battle about Hong-ki not practicing that’s great. Even the crowd is on Jaejin’s side: https://youtu.be/4X9Pyu-2i84

            Have checked out almost all their songs already haha, did listen to those two. I like their later stuff more. The Canvas album, Overcome and Where You At have been on repeat for several days now.

            They’re the masters of teamkills lol 😛 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keImWJfcKyw in case you wanna watch. It’s short and hilarious 😉
            I saw that already, but thank you ^^ They even argued about it on Coming Out haha.

          With FTI you are probably like how I am with Shinee. It’s hard for people to suggest a video I haven’t already seen since I’ve practically seen them all (or so it seems at least).

Since it seems like it’s K-pop Day on DB, I thought I’ll post someone I don’t know as well. This song is really relatable. It’s interesting how it correlates growing up to the loss of sincerity. (CC for English Subs)

What are the signs for you that you\’ve lost interest in a kdrama? When I\’m live watching, I know I\’ve started losing interest when I read the recap when I could be watching the episode.

    If I drop the recaps on a live watch, I’ll read the last episode recap at least just to know how it ends and the final thoughts of the recapper and people who stuck it out.

    Combining my DB comments and my tumblr posts, I’ve definitely written more about this show than I have for my actual classes this past week.

In the BTLIOF Ep. 6 recap, I\’m surprised how controversial Ji-ho\’s actions at the end are. I\’m truly enjoying everyone\’s insights though, whether I agree with them or not.

    I find it interesting that we usually criticise classic female characters for NOT speaking up. But in this drama we are divided over the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of Ji Ho’s actions and words. Much more interesting to discuss.

    5

      Exactly. Being a doormat is a whole other set of problems than reacting in a negative way. The latter makes for a more interesting discussion of whether it is a negative reaction, the why behind the reaction, and what’s going to happen next.

    um yeah I find it kind of hypocritical to be honest,didn’t she sign up for this knowing how it’s gonna be like? Should she expect the closeness or proximity of normal couples, like how she started to see something more in the ‘our’ related words? I thought the way she lashed out or the way she thought that lee min ki’s nerd guy fell for her, it didn’t sound rational coming from her, since she’s a writer in the first place. I have mixed feelings about this show, so yeah just saying lol.

    2

      I think she signed up not knowing how it was going to be like. Both of them ignorantly thought that they could just tell people they are getting married, get “married” on their own, and all will be well. That obviously didn’t happen, and it’s obvious that they didn’t take many things into account with their “contract.” They never considered how to handle family events or workplace situations like how she accidentally ran into his boss. Se-hee also just assumed that absolutely nothing would change, but it’s impossible for that to happen because there are so many people around them that are expecting change from them that naturally occurs with marriage.
      Plus, I think she fell for him a little at least before her proposal. She said on the bus how this wasn’t a time to fall in love, but…and when Se-hee asked if she liked him after her proposal, she hesitated, so I think she already had false hopes even at that stage. And, we are talking about a girl who thought her fellow writer was all into her for three years before realizing he was into someone else and that he was a jerk…She’s already known for misreading situations.
      I don’t think she was being rational in lashing out, but I think her irrationality is in line with the character we’ve come to know. The way she impulsively kissed Se-hee and her rudeness to her mother when her mother was against the marriage point to her reacting to her emotions before she’s really thought things through.

      But, I do see where you are coming from. That’s just my take from it.

        Pft. She didn’t really say anything but I got 87%. I thought I should have gotten more. Lol.

        There are actually a lot of books stating that they weren’t really in love. I mean, Romeo was “in love” with Rosaline that he wanted to die but 2 seconds after he met Juliet, he already jumped ships. I still don’t get why people find it romantic.

        5
        2

          Yeah, I’ve known a few people who agree that it’s not really all that romantic of a love story, so it’s made for interesting conversations.
          I just never got why pop culture has made it into some ultimate love story. I always roll my eyes when someone in a show/movie/song wishes to meet their “Romeo” or they want a love like “Romeo and Juliet.”

          I did a paper on this play and how the Leonardo Decaprio/Clare Danes movie ruined it for a term paper in creative writing in college and got a B+ as well! It was like 90% of my grade, so I ended up with a B+ in the class. I was Pre-med and made straight A’s in all my other science and math classes and this was the only B on my transcript! At the time, I was furious—all because of Romeo and Juliet. To this day, I still think the professor was biased because I didn’t think very highly of the film.

          3
          1

            That’s the worst. My only B was Spanish and while admittedly I did suck at it, I still think my grade was because I argued with him over his ever changing parameters on the final project…

      My Shakespeare professor in uni basically started teaching this play by telling us that the entire tragedy would have been avoided if only Romeo had some game and could get laid before he met Juliet. But, no, he had to be a whiny little goober.

      Still one of my favorite tragedies, because its comic elements are so strong and pretty much everyone besides R+J is fascinating (Mercutio is the best, and totally in love with Romeo) and the commentary on gender norms is insanely cool and dense and fun to parse. I mean, I could extol the virtues of the play for ages…

      3
      2

        Lol sounds about right.
        Romeo was a failed player and Juliet read one too many YA romance novels.

        5
        1

          But, like, also Juliet was really smart, she was just a child still (like, literally, she was 14) so she had no idea what love was. But like, she was also the one who used the “language of love” while speaking, which was usually only given to male characters, which was a really cool and subtle way of giving her power through speech despite her age and gender. And she fought her marriage to Paris, which like, yeah, her reason was R, but really, she probably would’ve fought it anyway because she was a boss like that. Basically she was way too good for Romeo, but she was too young to know that yet. Also, hormones.

          3
          1

            True enough. Shakespeare was good at subverting gender expectations by empowering women and challenging stereotypes. What I find clever with Juliet is her ramblings really are these overdramatic, teenage angsty speeches, but they have this “accidental” depth to them which of course is not accidental to Shakespeare. So, I’ll give it that much lol

            2

        I appreciate the comic elements in it and it’s something that Shakespeare does really well. And I agree. Mercutio is indeed the best.

          I never was able to fully appreciate this play until I studied it in uni, though I did like in in high school. It’s just so full of interesting elements that I can’t not love it. I actually don’t love the tragedies that much, but this is a favorite. (OK, not true, I love Hamlet, King Lear and Othello too. But I prefer the comedies!)
