Beanie level: Errand boy

It seems like I’m the only one watching Netflix’s Holo Love but the premier was 💕 and now I’ve godly zoomed through 7 (out of 12) eps.

I downloaded episodes of My Fellow Citizens to watch when I’m miles from Wifi and so far it’s keeping me crackling. Siwon’s face is pure elastic. His wife is <3 and Kudo Hina (^_^) is extra.

Why you should watch WWW: Search

I’m sorry, I need this epic-ness on my wall.

I just finished WWW: Search and I’m at a loss for words. This drama was utterly spectacular with incredible empowerment, characters, development, aesthetics and a stellar OST that I’ve had on repeat. Usually when I’m done with a kdrama all I can think about are the loose ends and lost potential. But WWW shocked me by being utterly amazing in every aspect. I relished the realistic dialogues, the engrossing work place dynamics, the changing alliances and brilliant details. I know this drama isn’t one for everyone. I’d personally classify it as Josei (a Japanese manga classification) instead of straight-up romance. All I know is that this drama was bliss for me, down to sleekness of it all, the epic trope reversals and the mindblowing OSTs that suited every mood under the rainbow. I’m happy with the way it ended but sad to let it go at the same time.

    Same. It entered my top 5. I have no words to say how much I loved it.

    Josei is a brilliant classification for this show, indeed!
    my only qualms with the show was actually the very same beautiful cinematographic shots you have there: did every single one of their outdoor encounters have to be of such unrealistic epic nature?? LOL
    but yeah. Great Josei.

The moment I take a break to catch up with real life, Dramaland decides to throw 1058839 premiers at me on top of my billion drama long To-Watch pile.
How do I keep up 😭😰

So I have a week to cram up for 3 very important finals, one of which contains almost Einstein level mathematics, attend 2 interviews for next year, submit all my formal documents and complete 1 shift. University stresses the heck out of me. Mood = fatigue.

I had originally sent a submission for the theme of the month but since I wasn’t published I thought I’d share my favs here, with some of my graphics to spice things up.
PART I
The best mini dramas make us care about the poignant characters that grace our screens for a few hours. They manage to make us feel for the tiny worlds that flash by in a couple of episodes. Binggoo is one such drama. Instantly within the first few seconds we’re catapulted to a boisterous 1979 with The Ronettes’ ‘Be My Baby’ playing in the background whilst a love-struck man runs to surprise his girlfriend.
Binggoo was a sweet, fantastical ride that handled time travel with a deft hand by creating characters we cheered on and teared up for because we were so utterly invested in their stories. It’s one of those few mini dramas that detailed their mains with snippets of back stories, realistic motivations and troubles, and growth arcs that left us stunned. Love was painted in its finest with the eager-eyed invincible young love between our star-crossed lovers to the devastating familial love that pains when family fades away or to friendship that leaves a mark even decades later. It’s a fun zippy mini drama that I’d recommend to anyone who’d like to sit back and chill with a show that’s as softly sweet as a lullaby.

PART II
Buzzcut Love
was a mini drama that I’d class as sunny, optimistic and ride you could breeze through despite the fact that it dealt with cancer. Polar opposites, I know. Yet, Ji Yool wedged her bubbly self into our hearts from the very moment she exclaimed ‘I love it’ as she stared back into the mirror at her electric, almost eccentric bright orange buzzcut. A whirlwind of a journey that covered loving oneself, feeling vulnerable and experiencing the bliss the freedom of life gives, it’s an unforgettable adventure that leaves you mushy and grateful.

PART III

I’m probably bending the rules a little, but I couldn’t not include Girls Generation 1979. Maybe I have a thing for 1979, but at 8 episodes (probably a midi-drama?) this was a cracktastic swirlie of laughter, friendship and the pangs of growing up whilst dealing with being a hot-blooded teenager during an uncertain time. The drama was whimsical, heartwarming and slice-of-lifeish which featured some of the best decade music hits. Sure, Jung Hee wasn’t the most selfless or loveable heroine, but she was realistic as a teen whose world revolved around a crush who didn’t like her back. The romance in the drama was a relay race of tag, (you’ll understand if you’ve watched it) but it was also sweet and endearing.
The social attitudes were so different back then and the drama makes it a point to create this old ambient atmosphere by driving in the different perceptions using true-to-life posters, attitudes, a curfew, war prep classes etc. So again, a recommendation I’d whole heartedly give.

Happy Easter Beanies!

Celebrated today by gorging at an all you can eat Chinese buffet. After 3 plates, 2 hours and 2 ice creams I’m stuffed. I didn’t even bother with chopsticks after plate no.1 😋

So I just finished IU’s first short: Love Set and I’m 99% sure she and Bae Doona have some romantic history between them and IU is still in love with her that’s why she opposes the marriage. That’s why there was so much symbolism: the peach, the sounds, the sweat, the blood down her leg, the linger of the thumb touch at the end.

Been of DB for a while so I jumped into Light In Your Eyes expecting a time-travel romance but got a slice-of-life, bittersweet realness mixed with incredible writing and a thousand feels. I’m a mess but I love it.

Secret Terrius is so adorkable! 💕 Just the fluff I need when I’m about to go cray cray from stress.
