Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

Mystic Popup Bar is so good! The world building is great and it gives you enough info to be curious but not overwhelmed. My hunch that CWY is the Crown Prince is getting stronger but I’m scared too ㅠㅠ

I feel bad saying this as a hardcore Winter Garden shipper but I honestly didn’t like how the show dealt with Jungwon and Gyeoul’s relationship in the last episode (and ep 11). Hmmmmm…

    I stopped watching at ep 10. But I read the naver articles…did the drama really end with a mysterious phonecall to obgyn doctor? Wooooo

    Really? I thought it was nice. I called a lot of what happened beforehand (e.g., that Jeong-won visited Gyeo-ul secretly when she had anaphylactic shock).

      It just feel forced at the last moment. I knew he likes Gyeoul but it wasn’t properly established, I think. Plus the fact that they got together now means rocky future for them because there are two seasons left.

    I’m just glad he decided to stay for what we can assume is the patients. If it weren’t for the conversation between Songhwa and Jungwon I would’ve been opposed to the winter garden end scene.

      I do agree that relationship seemed to escalate so quickly. There were other ways they couldve panned it out without a kiss but I guess people need a kiss scene

        Oh yes we DID need a kiss but hmmm… they could have done so much better:( The scene was meh for me

          Same. For a lack of a better word, it was meh. I wasn’t even so giddy. 🙁

        I second your opinion of teh relationship escalating quickly. They seemed to have had a lot less interaction to justify that kiss

      Yes! I’m glad he seems like he stayed for the patients. He’s too good of a doctor to lose.

Thank you, Hospital Playlist! For the heartache, for the giddiness, for tears, for laughter, for making me look forward to Thursdays, for taking me out of the dark… Until 2021~

Me watching characters pretend like they don’t like each other:

Lee Ik-jun is just too perfect but Jo Jung-seok makes him look like he exists.

    Oh yes because he’s also humble even if perfect.

      Right? Like he doesn’t have to but he goes out of his way for patients and friends. I dont know where he gets the energy. It would be so exhausting.

      And omg did they have to do that last scene?!

        I practically yelled at the screen! Why??? The only thing I’m thankful for is that at least we got crumbs that Sukhyung actually does like Minah. Giving up watching Journey to the West and writing then erasing “Merry Christmas”? And props to Minah for still showing signs that she likes him despite him “rejecting” her. She’s ballsy and confident. I was so happy then then crushed my dreams.

          It’s so annoying! Coz now it makes me think the ex is after his money! It’s the trope that I hate the most. Ex-lover leaves character then comes back when everything is well to make the boat shake. Ughhh

          Minha is so strong. I would have given up and cry in a corner but she’s still as awesome as ever.

          2
          1

            Exactly! Where was Shinhye when the news of the chairman being in critical condition came out?? She either must be desperate for money and/or wanting to get back together.

            Minha better come back in the second season!! I’m certain all the main 5 will be back but having all the characters be available for filming must be difficult. Minha is definitely the number 1 character that I need to be back in the next season. They skimped out on her scenes after her confession!! I was so sad… but hopefully they have the whole crew back 😉

My Thursday Dilemma: Which should I watch first? Hospital Playlist, Mystic Popup Bar, or Oh My Baby? 🤦‍♀️

    Is Mystic Pop-up Bar good? I’m leery of YSJ and HJE.

    Haha same. Now Hosplay has ended but still I don’t like having too many dramas to watch in one timeslot. You don’t want to delay any of them.

Oh My Baby is shaping up as the rom-com of the year. My heart. Omg. Help!

    Just watched 5th episode and it’s getting better and better!!! Can’t wait for next… How am I going to wait every week?

    Yup – rom com of the year!

    And it doesn’t gloss over motherhood just as a plot device. The time the drama gives to the editor-new mom echoes so much of the dilemma faced by working women. And each episode is better than the one before. Just finished Ep 6 raw, so good.

    2
    2

      I like that! Also, with her trying to get pregnant. I was all for her when she said it but now I’m having more thoughts as she delve into it more. When she said she’s confident she can love her child but would that be enough? Ahhh my heart. I know a lot of people who grew up well in a single parent family but what if? This drama is so good!

Omg I just had this thought while watching Mystic Popup Bar! What if Choi Won-young is the Crown Prince? Either he got punished for something or chose to accompany Weol-ju in this? Wait I\’m crying ;A;

    Now I want this to happen and will be disappointed if it doesn’t.

      Same! I mean it would be too simple if he was just there to keep her in check. Also, he obviously cares for her and stays with her no matter what.

      I really want to see more of what happened in the past coz there is no way the Crown Prince just stayed still after she died.

This hurts so much. The world is so unfair. If you didn’t have money or connections, did you have to die and be born again rich? Ugh.

We’ve talked about doing Good Night Bookclub Gatherings before. I wonder if there are beanies who are still interested. Taking suggestions on how to make it work, if ever we decide to do it! Leaving this here for now. Something I wrote earlier. Good night!

Second ep of Pocha is even better! Looks like there is more to the past than what we already know. So excited for the next episodes!

    Are you talking about the one person she killed for who she agreed to serve her punishment? I thought it was her mom that one precious one who convinced her…

    0
    1

      Not sure if it’s someone she killed but she had other sins beside the 100,000 who died due to her tarnishing the tree. She was so adamant about going to Hell instead of helping people. What could it be to make ber change her mind and cry that much?

      0
      1

        That she made the king fall in love with her and when he’d learned she hang herself to revenge her he killed many innocent people and made suffer all of the country? I really thought it was about her mom, because she made the shaman’s ritual and learned from spirits what will be done with her daughter and she sacrificed herself for her daughter’s future and safety but it didn’t work because she saw the house in flames and returned. We’ll see.

Doctor Son is such a drama fan! I had the same sentiments for Chi-hong as she did. Her sighs and squeals lol. It’s funny how Doctor Ha doesn’t get it

    Lol I watch their clips too, I haven’t watched ep 11 and their ep 11 review is not subbed yet.

    But based on the other review clips, I’m on Doctor Ha’s side when it comes to the couples in the drama 🤭.

      HAHAHAHAHAHHA Stay neutral and don’t know what’s going on? I’m more like Doctor Son. We both like Chi-hong too lol

      They are so fun to watch and informative too!

        I like Chihong. But after I read that show made him unlikeable to make IJ look better, I can’t watch ep 11. I feel bad for Chihong. I don’t want to not like him.

          Was that me on twitter? I talked to you about that. I’ve thought it through and his actions made sense. It’s not right but they made sense.

          0
          0

          I don’t know if they did it to make Ik-jun look better. For me, Chihong’s actions just made him a creep, but they didn’t make Ik-jun look any better. Ik-jun dropped the ball in this episode too so in the end I wanted Songhwa to get away from both guys for a while.

Hwang Jung-eum is so pretty! I never thought about it before coz she\’s usually clumsy and screamy in her past dramas. Pocha seems fun! Please keep the energy until the end!

      I watch most of dramas muted for personal reasons, I didn’t know what everybody was complaining about and when I switched on the sound I understood 😂 But yep, she’s still talking like she would have hot potato in mouth but not screaming without reason.
