Beanie level: Errand boy

Ho ho… I like this new partnership. And I luuff Yoo Seo-young. I think Det Ko got himself a sharp and capable, if exasperating partner here.

    I don’t know about Yoon yet. She is trying to damn hard to be quirky instead of just really good at her job.

    Cut that out.

Ooohh… this is so much better and far crazier than what I expected. And I really dig it.
Also, Lee Seo-jin ahjussi… 😍😍😍

    This drama is beautiful to look at and intense to watch. I’m almost glad it’s only 7 episodes long xD

      Heh. Exactly. I don’t think I can handle that kind of suspense for 16 eps long.

I don\’t understand why you\’re always the first one to go away in a makeover scene.
People kept saying that we are prettier and more handsome without you, as if turning people ugly is one of your unwritten purpose.
But the thing is, I\’ve known you for more than half of my life, and I couldn\’t even imagine how I would look like without you.

You are the first one I reached for after I woke up.
You are the one that made my world brighter and you are also the one that allowed me to wave back to my smiling friends from across the building.
We\’ve done so much things together: reading novels, writing those story-like diary entries, studying, chatting online, watching dramas, gawking at oppa\’s pictures, eating, cooking, cleaning the house, …
At this point, it\’s probably easier to list the things I did without you.

I haven\’t always been fond of you.
Especially in the beginning, when people easily put me under \’the studious girl\’ label merely because of your presence.
You felt restraining then, projecting a certain image than I didn\’t want, and I never stopped praying for the day where I can finally be free of you.

But that was years ago.
I don\’t know since when you finally felt like an extension of myself, since when I started liking you little by little.
But I remembered forgoing a more elaborate eye makeup to numerous important occasions, just so I could wear you comfortably.
I joked about finding an excuse to keep you around when my mom told me about lasik surgery.
I looked at you in the mirror, and you always fascinated me in the way you made me look younger and more animated.

I touched your blue frame.
You know what? Nowadays I kinda like to be \’that girl who looks pretty in glasses\’.

Love, February 💕

    ^_^ I love this so much ~

    I have a distinct memory of tackling a boy in kindergarten for laughing at my glasses. These frames have been through so much with me, they’re a friend and comfort.

    Thank you for sharing ~

Dramas taught me that oftentimes, first love is a perfect recipe for fated couple.

But in real life, I\’ve seen too many supposedly innocent first love left a long-lasting streak of fear and suspicion, too many young hearts getting broken, too many first love stories taking a sharp and bitter turn.

Then I looked back to my own past, and found myself smiling in relief and gratitude, because my unrequited first love has been with such a nice guy like you.

Love, February 💕

      Exactly. I couldn’t stop laughing at his super serious acting, while Yoo In-na’s character butchering her lines.

      I’m sorry Lee Dong-wook, but this guy somehow left deeper impression in that 5 minutes cameo of his.

        I think the hairstyle they gave LDW is not doing him any favors, because he doesn’t give off professional vibes as he’s supposed to (because of the bad hairstyle). Whereas JKY’s aura and styling (though for just a cameo) were very good, and I think that helped. In conclusion, I agree I felt JKY’s character more this episode.

    His appearance was the only tolerable thing about it. I could not even finish this episode.

      The drama looks like the usual paper-thin plotline romcom with caricature characters, but I really miss Yoo In-na. I’ll probably stick to it till the end for her. (Hopefully it gets better though)

A Reminder to Self

To all of you who grew up hating your unusual name,
Who found yourself as the anomaly in most of your life.

To all of you who got accepted into a major that people kept saying didn\’t suit a dreamer like you,
Who scribbled poems or musings at the margin of your exam sheet,
Who love number as much as you love words.

To all of you who put aside your younger self\’s dream to pursue a more \’realistic\’ one,
Who followed a winding road to an unknowable future,
Who is still trying to find your life partner.

And to all of you who chose to share a piece of yourself in this online community,
Know that you are loved and precious the way you are.

Love, February 💕

It\’s raining outside
and I sighed at another wet day, at the inconvenience of raincoat and soaked clothes.

Then I paused.
When did rain turn into a source of annoyance?

It used to be a time of magic. My little face pressed close to the window, watching rain poured down on my yard, enraptured.
It used to be a special time spent huddling under the blanket with my mom and sister. Sharing funny stories, warmth, and giggles.
It was a time when all arguments left forgotten. My classmates and I crowded under too small umbrellas, drenched and barefoot. Our shriek of laughter could be heard from miles away.
It was a time when I sat down, staring as the world turned hazy and blurry. Hunting for words and waiting for rainbow.
It was a time of unexpected secret sharing, of heart fluttering stolen glances, of the beginning of a strange tale.

When did I become too preoccupied with my hectic life that rain ceased to be enjoyable?

It\’s raining outside
I opened my umbrella and took a step onto the wet pavement, reminding myself that joy and happiness still existed in small, mundane things.
Like the fact that it was raining on a sunny day.

Love, February 💕

      Actually the story didn’t really excite me, but since Lee Kyu-hyung tend to pick an interesting drama, I’ll believe in his choice. Hopefully this drama will surprise me in a good way.

My variety and kdrama world collided!!

Sec Seo a.k.a. Min Jin-woong is going to appear in Problematic Man. I’ll probably broke my vow to marathon this variety show in chronological order and watch this newest eps instead.

Just going to leave this picture here. I probably have several things to say… after I figure out why this ending mostly left me numb.

KBS Drama Special Slow

Silent, tense, and dreary. A raw depiction of someone battling their extreme anxiety and mind block. And as usual, Kwak Dong-yeon’s acting blew me away.

I’m glad that this final hour took us through many characters’ emotional journey. The logic behind the mystery might be a simple one, but the steps these wounded people bravely take to face a life full of possibilities is an uplifting experience. That we can learn, we can forgive, and choose not to repeat the same old mistake.

If there is one thing to complain about, it’s the lack of Ji-heon’s full story. I’m pretty sure he also has a heck of a story judging from his comments and the way the camera lingered on him at certain emotional moment. But then again, even without knowing about his past, I know that he has learned a good deal from this case and especially from Ha-na’s open love. And I found myself satisfied with it.

Despite being a more devastating and gritty story than what I imagined it to be, at the core of its heart Friend, Our Legend is always about long-lasting friendship (and its eventual death) and the pain of growing up.

It’s a story about regret and missed chance. About unspoken love and forgiveness. It’s all about making a hard decision, about giving up on simple dreams, about people paving their own way in the world. It’s a tale of sweet childhood, exuberant youth, and jaded adult. A drama where despair and inevitability hung on every episode, where every happy scenes made you anxious because it always felt too good to be true. I knew from the very first eps that these characters are set out to break my heart, and yet I couldn’t look away until the very bitter end.

Definitely a satisfying, if painful watching experience.

    You are so cool. I couldn’t bring myself to watch it 🙀😞.

    thank you Gadis for all those posts and esp. this final review ^^ . This drama never was under my radar but your posts, the story itself and let’s be honest HyunBin + Lee Si Eon are tempting me a lot : so adding it to my to-watch list.
    I’ll give you some feedbacks when I watch it, maybe before spring…as always if drama schedule allows it haha x)

      Go for it when you are in the mood for something dark and tragic. It’s definitely refreshing to see Hyun Bin in this kind of role. (He should do it more often, imo)
      I’ll wait for your feedbacks. ☺

Can a flashback be anymore painful than this?? I miss their laughter and easy friendship as much as them.

How did one go from being a gentle and hurt soul into this kind of person who coldly ignored the senseless violence around him? It feels like Dong-soo has crossed the point of no return the moment he realized that there’s no use in compassion when everyone else is ready to abandon and give up on him.

I want to close my eyes, pretend I know nothing about their bitter future, and simply hope that my little ship will sail someday. I mean, just look at their smile. I miss that badly.

Does growing up and paving your own way in the world supposed to be this painful??

I’m both laughing and sobbing right now watching Dong-soo re-acclimated himself with his newly acquired freedom. 3 years sure is a long time to spend in prison. I’m just glad that at least Joong-ho is there to lighten up the situation.

Thank God for these two and their uncomplicated view of the world and cute, quirky romantic loveline. I never knew that watching a group of friends undergoing some changes while growing up could be this painful and suffocating.
