Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

To some he is the “car door guy”, to others he is “third one from the left” while to many he is “the flying kiss guy”.
However, to me Jin is “the guy cosplaying as doctor in DOPE”. And that’s how I discovered BTS lol 😝 😛

    “that time he stepped out of a car and became a nationally trending hashtag” will forever find that fact hilarious haha.

      I remember the group’s interview after BBMA when they were told about Jin going viral as “third guy from left” & his response was “I’m worldwide handsome” along with his trademark flying kiss. haha. that was the funniest to me XD

        Do you have a BTS “bias” btw?

        1
        1

          Yes & its Jin (I’m too obvious about it he he) πŸ˜›
          Its always been Jin for me from the beginning, I kept watching their initial songs because I always wanted to see him (I’m a sucker for looks lol)
          I know he’s least popular among Asian armies so I was extremely happy when he recently received so much international popularity.
          After Jin its JK,V & Suga & after that JM,RM. They are all bias wreckers though, its so tough to stand by my choice. πŸ˜›

          And do you have any bias?? πŸ™‚

          1
          2

            Ahhh! You’re the second Jin bias I’ve met! haha
            Oh, mine is Suga. All the way. Even like, out of other groups, he’s my bias.
            He was the first I took notice of too, and he’s so far ahead, there’s like no hope for anyone else. But V was second, and then Jhope surpassed him lmao. But they’re all lovely indeed.

            Yeah, there are very few Jin biased πŸ™ I wish he’d get as much attention as the other members do T.T

            About Suga, he caught my attention in Dope, he was so cool, plus his looks always gave me this sweet candy feeling, I later found out that’s exactly why he was given the name, Suga(r). πŸ™‚

me : There are barely any beanies here who are BTS fans so I’ll take it upon myself to post some stuff to express my appreciation for the band.

sarcastic voice inside my head : yeah, good luck with that 😏

me : what do you mean?? 😑

sarcastic voice inside my head : you can’t even keep up with the kdrama fandom which is like the basic purpose of DB fan wall, don’t even mention kpop. Have you seen how many beanies have been shot through the heart with cupid’s arrow because of the swoony second lead in GBS ?

me : well, that scene was awesome and its already been appreciated a lot, so can I do my kpop thing now?

sarcastic voice inside my head : for that you need to get up & MOVE. **looks at self lying flat on bed with double chins & with laptop on stomach, basically not moved an inch since morning**

me : don’t judge me ok! I’m not lazy, this is just my energy saving mode!! 😤 😤

          Haha do that! And post all BTS videos that you want! Sico is a BBC, an ARMY and also a Carat! Though she just likes to be called a BBC cuz the Block B fandom could do with more fans.. that doesn’t deter her from making fans out of others! Till now she has made me a fan of Block B and introduced me to BTS (though I obviously knew them… after all, who doesn’t).. and she has succeeded in teaching me names of all 13 members of Seventeen through a series of posts called @obsessedmuch‘s Memeteen education 😛

          Meanwhile, I fight a lone battle trying to convert her into an Inner Circle- fan of the only group I seriously stan WINNER 😁

            Remembering 13 members??? O.O
            I salute you guys.
            I almost felt like goldfish when I couldn’t even tell the Bts members apart (except for the pretty Jin).
            That’s why I’m so wary of checking out other groups bcoz of their size XD

          But I have to do my obvious duty as an IC here- do check out WINNER if you ever decide to explore more kpop groups.. added advantage? Just 4 members! πŸ˜€
          And not to be pushy or anything, but I have to link one of their songs at least! πŸ˜›

          But they were my first ever group, so they’ll always have a soft spot in my heart, but I ACTUALLY just don’t really call myself by the fandom name for any group except Block B, because I like bees … and I find the others awkward hahaha

    Do tell your sarcastic voice to kick rocks and upload videos. If someone isn’t a member of your kpop fandom isn’t it part of your duty to force it on the wall and make sure everyone is aware? Even when people are already aware? This is what I tell myself when I upload the same video 22 times. I’m doing my duty as a fan. Vromance and Saltnpaper need more love, dangit.

    I WANTED TO WRITE THIS WITH THE POST BUT ACCIDENTALLY PRESSED SEND, NOW I CAN’T EDIT DUE TO SOME GLITCH…
    There are not many pop singers in India, playback singers are much more famous & we’ve had our own legendary singers with voice of gold throughout Bollywood history.
    So, the singers don’t need to be an all rounder in voice, looks & dancing skills, the popular ones nowadays are with captivating voice (although recently the annoying party songs with the catchy tune & not much content are getting fame, I still prefer the ones with quality singers)
    My personal favorite being Mohit Chauhan. While Arjit Singh has also honey like voice.

    I wonder whom @ObsessedMuch , @greenfields & other Indian beanies like…. 😯

    3
    1

      Oh this is so nice! Thanks for putting it up. And it’s so much fun to learn this about a fellow Indian beanie – what do like in addition to Kdramas?

      I’m a Rehman fan through and through. As mainstream and as old fashioned as you could get. πŸ˜€ Kailash Kher is a close second favorite (“Allah ke bande”/”Toota toota ek parinda” – possibly my ONE all time favorite song). But I’m more of a western rock person – RHCP, Pearl Jam, Green Day, et al. No K-pop in my life. ^^;

      Agreed with you about quality singers over the present trend of annoying party songs. Eeks – when an uber driver or autowallah plays Yo Yo Honey Singh, my internal curse meter jumps about 10 levels.

      2
      4

        Rehman is epic, I have so much respect for him, he’s such a talented musician & makes us all proud if him.
        I remember kailash kher’s album coming out with hit songs such a ‘Allah kr bande’ (very inspirational song) & ‘deewani’ which I liked a tad bit more because it was romantic πŸ˜‰

        I feel like I could answer an essay to your question of what I like other than kdramas πŸ˜€
        But to keep it short, for western music I like Coldplay very very much. And for visual enjoyment I like, wait for it…..Taylor swift lol XD while my opinion about her music varies but most of her vids are good to look at so I check them out once in a while. πŸ˜›
        I remember I once had 21 guns of green day in my phone then one friend listened to it & next thing I know, it went viral in my class hehe.
        Apart from that I like western classical music a lot, but I have very limited knowledge.

        Idk whether to encourage you to give kpop a try or not cuz its a maze! I can never tell the idols apart because they keep changing their style & hair color so many times!

        And, in addition to all these I like manga & anime too, which, I’m damn sure, is very rare for any beanie here. πŸ˜›

        2
        2

          About ‘Deewani’ – yes! It’s so romantic! I love it.😍 And somehow Hindi is a more potent language to me – I can’t curse in Hindi at all because the words seem so string, but the same curse words in English mean little to me. Same with romantic music ^^

          LOL about the Green Day story. Is it okay to ask – how old are you?

          Oo I love anime and manga as well. That’s how I got into all this some five years ago – moved from there to Jdorama and finally Kdrama. Err… Is it okay to say this? I was a massive BL fan at one point. 😂 But my all time favourite manga is probably the very violent seinen ‘Threads of Time’. What do you like??

          1
          2

            Its totally ok to ask, I turned 25 this August. (It’s difficult to forget this age when according to my mom I’m on a dangerous threshold of becoming older without getting married lol , she’s very worried XD )

            And saying jdorama just makes you sound like an experienced fan, only the selected few know how to pronounce this Japanese style πŸ˜‰ I’m glad you love manga & anime too.
            I’m not a BL fan but I do come across them sometimes & whether I read them or not depends on my *ahem* mood πŸ˜› Btw, manhwa’s featuring BL are very stunning right…I mean that’s what I feel. πŸ˜‰

            My favorite genres are romance & slice of life so my favorite manga/anime so far is Nodame Cantabile.
            Plus I’m currently following like a gazillion mangas lol.

            For both you & @obsessedmuch
            its true that Hindi curse words hit much worse than English ones.
            I find the English curse words to be simply in trend, people seem to use them to do the “swag” & look cool , like saying f*** in every sentence or so seems to be in vogue; So much, that it sounds like a regular word now…

          This thread is amazing! I missed so much conversation!! @obsessedmuch & @irishrah & @meera17817 (nice to meet you! :))

          I was on a date ladies – a journalist seven years older than me. But there’s a reason he’s 34 and single – he chooses to be. Whereas I am also facing immense pressure on the marriage front. So it might not be the right time to casually “date” men.

          @fatcat007 -thanks about the jdorama! I speak Japanese (basic – JLPT N5, for fun) so I should be able to get this much right!! πŸ˜€

          I have completely stopped reading manga though. My life is all Kdramas these days. I haven’t seen anything after Baahubali 2, so it’s been a while. What are you reading now? Anything good?

          2
          1

            Good luck for the future of you date πŸ™‚ hope everything turns out well
            This is the best way I can say it because I’m a unicorn (never been in love, never dated anyone lol. Don’t tell nobody though, its an embarrassing secret πŸ˜› )

            My Japanese vocab consists of a handful of words courtesy of subbed animes lol. Basic stuff like arigato, Ohio etc…

            I can’t even keep track of Indian movies anymore…was English medium before or after bahuballi 2 I wonder? Whatever the case, its the last movie I’ve seen. All of us Indian beanies are so saturated with kdramas we don’t have the time(or heart) for anything else πŸ˜›

            Lastly, I’m following just SO many mangas rn but can’t think of any good one to recommend to you. Probably cuz they are not relatable anymore….
            Still, maybe ReLife might interest you. Give it a try…

            2

        Oh I was thinking of posting this one sometime back but I think I chose a movie song instead!

        Is it weird to say that I don’t really have any favourites in Hindi music industry.. or maybe put it another way- I fall in love with every soulful song! Arijit is brilliant but I sing along more happily with all the 90s and 2000s songs! I just know their lyrics without having to memorize them! I guess growing up in that era would do that to you! I also like classical songs! Obviously Shaan and Sonu Nigam become automatic must- listens cuz they have been singing since I was born! I can sing along to 60s and 70s classics too! *do I sound like an old person* *hamare zamaane ke gaane gaane hote the, ab to bas shor hota hai* *yup, I think 27 is the new 67! πŸ˜›

        But then kdramas happened, and all my time was spent in the k-world and I don’t keep up with Indian music any more. I might hear the songs by chance, love them but won’t listen to them again! And well, now I am into kpop on top of it all! Time hi nahi hai πŸ˜›

        I can’t curse in Hindi at all because the words seem so string, but the same curse words in English mean little to me.

        Same man! I might not mind saying F**k a lot but I can’t even think of it’s Hindi substitutes! It just sounds very crude!

        2
        5

          I think all of us are 90s kids here & totally memorized all of those 90s songs by heart! πŸ˜€
          You don’t sound like an old person at all, 60s & 70s era songs were classy which can never be reproduced or made again, the songs & the singers were legit gold. My personal favorite being Kishore Kumar, his voice is therapy, never heard a more melodious voice than his πŸ™‚

            Hehehe yup! Kishore Kumar’s voice was/is brilliant!

            This thread is looking like a Indian beanie meet and I wish @irishrah was here too to give her 2 cents on it! πŸ˜€

            Also,

            It’s difficult to forget this age when according to my mom I’m on a dangerous threshold of becoming older without getting married lol , she’s very worried

I have dropped most manga post all the classic ones naruto/bleach/godly bells coming to an end & the wait every week is soo painful.. plan to catch up soon though. The only one I still religiously read as published is SkipBeat !! I louuvee that manga!

          Koi mil gaya from kuch kuch hota was perfectly memorized, the steps remember & played in every school function haha. Basically every kajol-srk movie was watched, the romantic songs played on doordarshan (the stone age guys) etc.
          I even remember the Dhara jalebi ad omg you guys I’m so done XD nostalgia hitting me so hard

          Omg another manga fan I can’t believe it. And to top it of, you are keeping up with Skip beat (bows in respect). I like that manga, but the updates literally kill me, so I’m sure one day (in 50 years or so) it will conclude & I’ll binge read it πŸ˜›

          And BL is totally fine by me too, but to read it(or any umm sexy themed manga) I need to be in the *ahem* mood πŸ˜›

          Hyd….the king city for biryanis, I’ve never been there but all of my friends who live there praise it so much it just makes me long for it πŸ˜€

            Hahahha.. I just had to go invite her because this was such and interesting thread (funny you say that cuz I have actually limited my DB presence! πŸ˜› I used to be on here ALL the time! Yes, this is me being less active! And Rainbow Unicorn has cut down on the DB craze too! It’s all part of our DB de-addiction plans!)

            SRK and Kajol are love. I still watch DDLJ whenever it comes on TV. It will probably never get old for us! Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was another favourite but it was just last week that I didn’t watch it when it was coming on TV… It looked stupid to me and I suddenly questioned whether I was forgetting “my roots” aka 90s Bollywood because of Kdramas! But nops, caught a bit of Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and it was still awesome! KKHH is the only SRK-Kajol 90s movie that I grew out of! πŸ˜›

            But you know, I hated Kajol’s lehenga even then. Preferred her tomboy look quite a lot and I was never a fan of that colour!

            Aww… dhara jalebi ad was super cute and I think I am gonna go on Youtube and watch some old ads!

            And all your talk about manga and anime (and BL- which I didn’t even know was a thing!) is making me curious! We did have Animax back as kids and I used to watch Cardcaptor Sakura on it.. and there was this show called ‘Emma’ on it which I really liked though I don’t think if it would be considered an anime too….

            Anyway, off to sleep now! This thread is so nice! Thanks for posting this vid and basically having a mini-Indian beanie meet! Now I am thinking of other Indian beanies who could have been here like @darcylove @dramaninja! But I haven’t seen them on here lately!

            I’ll tell you a secret, srk-kajol being my all time favorite Bollywood couple, I haven’t watched ddlj XD okay, now that I’ve dropped the bomb lemme clarify, I’ve seen it, just not properly, but in installments. Haha. I always shock people by telling them I haven’t seen ddlj & sholay (I get the stink eye from most people lol)

            And animax was the reason I got hooked to anime’s & then mangas & my fandom hasn’t died since them. You liked Emma?? πŸ™‚ it was a beautiful anime, one of my all time favorite πŸ™‚
            (BL is just one of those things in the otaku world which is a black hole for manga lovers beware while approaching it, it might permanently suck you in. jk;-) )

            And I’m so glad I posted this vid today, didn’t expect it to turn into such a wonderful beanie meet πŸ™‚
            Gn. πŸ™‚

            P.s. there’s an Indian beanie called @darcylove ?? O.O ya’ll my soulmates I swear! I need to have a heart to heart conversation with her about our undying love for Mr.Darcy XD

            Oh god! DDLJ is my favourite but I know many who haven’t watched it! So no stinky eyes from me πŸ™‚

            I love Pride and Prejudice! I have a rusty old copy (my dad’s- almost 40+ yr old) which I have read way too many times and refuse to buy a new one! I might like Elizabeth more than Darcy but he was an interesting character too! And well, he is so iconic! Like half the kdrama leads-heck any romantic story’s lead- could be based on him!

            Lizzy and Darcy are the foundation of any modern day romantic story which involves love-hate relationship, its why people still love them πŸ™‚

            Agreed! I have always maintained that Pride&Prejudice is the first line of ChickLits or amazing romances.. ! Gosh I have re-read that book so many times.. even more times than HP.. Even was mandatory reading for all my boyfriends.. only the hubby managed to avoid reading it.. and his proposal was decidedly unromantic.. heck now that I think about it he never ever asked me out on a date or to even marry me.. we sort of just fell into both!

          @irishrah this is an amazing Indian beanie meet!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Yay! Another BL reader. I seriously was obsessed at one point. It’s my black hole of shame. The kala dhabba on my past.

          Oh Indian Ocean is so good. I haven’t heard anything of their’s for a while now, come to think of it. It’s been nothing but Kdramas for me this past year :p Now I feel like giving them a listen.

          Hyderabad is so nice. I have a couple of close/old friends there, whom I’ve visited occasionally. πŸ˜€ Have done the Hyderabad tourist thing.

            BL is a manga reader’s pride , don’t be ashamed of it, you just need the proper people(like us) to appreciate you taste hee hee.

            Hahaha! BL is well BL.. full confession though.. I wasnt much of a fan of BL till I found some actually tastefully done stuff like Yuri on Ice or some of the Thai Lakorns.. cuz BL can sometimes just be an excuse for terrible plots with soft p*rn.. so haha! i get ur kala dhabba bit.. wouldnt ever come clean on having followed any BL on any other forum but here!

            @irishrah & @fatcat007you’re right about BL often descending into soft porn 🙈 For good or for bad, I began with some amazingly good BL and was hooked! Hahaha

            @irishrah haha, I still don’t think BL is a kala dhabba , I don’t prefer it but its just so popular among manga readers! Like I said, you need the correct people to appreciate your tastes & a fellow manga reader definitely appreciates it πŸ˜‰

        Duuude this thread is proper 90s hardhitting nostalgia!! Those jalebi ads.. and Koi mil gaya… Kyaaaa!! Thanks to you my hubby (yes – I recently got married & don’t have to put up with the aunties snidely commenting on my unmarried status anymore.. but now new annoyances have begun.. u can guess what – for Indians the natural nagging post marriage is about ______ *sigh* you can never escape the nagging ladies – the scale just gets larger & larger!)

        to get back to Koi mil gaya.. thanks to this post my hubby had to put up with a very annoying high excitement screetchy performance of koi mil gaya complete with the air guitar moves & imaginary balloon popping and stuff.. and duh he was the stand in for srk!

        Nothing like singing in exuberance to all those 90s songs.. gosh now I’m yearning for Falguni Pathak.. and those other songs.. *chaandni raat hogi taaron ki barsaat hogi..* hahahaha!

        I’m a fan of coldplay/metallica etc but you just cant emo scream along with them the way u can with these ‘golden’ growing up songs or BackstreetBoys !! Lol

          Oh congratulations!!! Loool – you’d think the aunties would leave you alone for a few months at least *rolls eyes*

          dancing to koi mil gaya again must be so much fun πŸ˜€
          I always remember the last scene of the song when kajol just walks away cuz she’s so badly friendzoned by srk XD

          And how did I forget our beloved Phalguni pathak & Backstreet boys!!
          That doll with umbrella that I wanted so badly from “maine payal hai chankayi” πŸ˜›
          And my class used to play “everybody rock your body” so many times during any school functions that we finally got told off by our principal for being so noisy all the time lol. (girls convent school, just imagine the screams lol)

            Hahaha! I can totally imagine the screaming..and all the dancing in bus corridors?!

            how did i forget my obsession with the blue dress in falguni pathak’s “chudi jo kanki” ?! Lol

            and not to mention crying with Kajol during the whole ‘tujhe yaad na meri aayi’ song..!

          Actually I can’t decide on any one, that was the reason I posted this YT link because its a perfect mash up of his best performances.
          But if I had to choose it’d be Fitoor, his voice can be hypnotic at times when he wants it πŸ™‚
          I’m obsessed with that song, can listen to it on loop all day long!

If one has this drama list to finish, what should be the order of watching them? I’m asking for a friend.
So even if the genres are completely different in each case, how would you list them??

    Goblin
    Chicago typewriter
    Liar and his lover

    I haven’t seen Chicago typewriter, and will likely never see it, because I’m just not in the mood to to cry my eyes out. Maybe if I had seen it before Liar, it might have happened. But always, Goblin first.

      I second this order of viewing. I haven’t seen Chicago Typewriter either, but just based on the grand scale of things and how awesome – if lengthy – Goblin is.

Okay, last one before I go to sleep.
My first fandom attack is finally subsiding….there’s no telling when I’ll get the next attack though (they tend to come without warning) hehe
& if it does return, I’ll probably flood the DB fan wall again, be prepared beanies
Swag!!! ✌️🀘

So basically the whole show was cute but then some scenes were ultra-cute to a whole new level

    I miss the cuteness, for awhile I kept rewatching the ultra cute scenes over and over and over for weeks on end πŸ™‚
    The plot was nothing great, but it just had soooo much heart.

      The plot was nothing great, but it just had soooo much heart.

      I agree too. The plot was not much, but the cuteness & love really got me. It was just overflowing with so much sweetness πŸ™‚

        The one plot device I will always remember from that show is Joon-hyung’s terrible mother and his breakdown when he found out the truth. Then there were the really cute moments like this.
