Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

Ahjumma April

Actually, I’ve shared this quotes around 2 years ago when My Ajusshi was airing. But re-reading the novel, I found this scarily relevant to what we have to do in this challenging situation. So, here it is. A wise statement from Amber, one of my favorite female character in Mad Ship by Robin Hobb. I always remember Amber for her astute observation, sharp questions, and her courage to always point out the uncomfortable truth everyone tried to pretend away.

Everyone thinks that courage is about facing death without flinching.But almost anyone can do that. Almost anyone can hold their breath and not scream for as long as it takes to die. True courage is facing life without flinching. I don’t mean the times when the right path is hard, but glorious at the end. I’m talking about enduring the boredom, and the messiness, and the inconvenience of doing what is right.

And also, a worthy reminder for us all.

Stop using every mistake you make as an excuse to fail completely.

Fighting, everyone! We can do this.

Remember when Jeong-won protested about how fast Jun-wan eat whenever they ate together? Maybe this is the reason. You should blame young Ik-jun and Seok-hyeong, Jeong-won-ah. 🤭🤭🤭

Another BTS goodies from #HiByeMama. This particular scene is quite bittersweet in the drama, but the rehearsal and preparation are such a riot.


[Lee Kyu-hyung is, once again, trying to find a better position for his scene with Go Bo-gyeol. He lifted her in fireman carry and argued that it was the most comfortable for both of them, while she played along and ‘drunkenly’ waved her hand towards her new unnies]


[Lee Kyu-hyung (while looking at Go Bo-gyeol): “Yuri, walk. You can walk by yourself.”
Go Bo-gyeol: “I’m not Yuri… γ… γ… ”
She then asked the cameramen responsible for shooting the BTS videos if they captured that moment. Lee Kyu-hyung is all flustered, trying to explain that he said that because he saw Yu-ri still sitting on the stair.
The PD then took pity and saved him by saying that he just trying to be funny. γ…‹γ…‹γ…‹]


[The cast are discussing about what can someone in Kang-hwa’s position do if situation like this happened for real. Shin Dong-mi (Hyun-jung) quipped that if Lee Kyu-hyung really said things like in the 2nd GIF, he would die for sure. Go Bo-gyeol agreed and told him that she would feel hurt.
Lee Kyu-hyung: I’m also sorry… hiing…
He slunk away, making the ladies burst out laughing.]

The production team knows precisely what I want. Lee Kyu-hyung always looks great with kids. And this special BTS collection is no different.

[Aww… I love the way he softly said “You’ve worked hard,” to the baby]


[daddy Kang-hwa is pissy at too-cute-and-playful Seo-woo γ…‹γ…‹γ…‹]


[Daddy Kang-hwa who turn into a jukebox for Seo-woo’s sake. “Baby Shark ddu~ ru~ ru~ ddu~ ru~”]

The production team must know that we, the viewers, are quite desperate for more sweetness between Kang-hwa and Min-jung because we got a rare peek at the BTS of their scenes. Enjoy!!


[Lee Kyu-hyung is trying to find a different pose so that their walk together doesn’t feel too awkward. When Go Bo-gyeol questioned his suggestion, he laughingly said “I don’t know how a couple normally use an umbrella together.”]


[He suggested for them to walk while linking arm, and Go Bo-gyeol teasingly protested that she wouldn’t want to do that since she is preparing for a divorce. Lee Kyu-hyung: “Shouldn’t you pretend that there’s nothing wrong while preparing for that, instead?”]

    I guess it wouldn’t make much sense for them to link arms cuz we’ve never seen much physical affection between them but even just sharing the umbrella makes my heart flutter.

I’m celebrating the budding friendship between Yu-ri and Min-jung. The ship sail, everyone! And judging from Seo-woo’s bright grin, the little girl definitely approves of this new development.

    Love it! Minjeong doesn’t seem like the friendly type although she is a kind person so it’s nice to see her interactions with Yuri. I’m tired of people talking crap behind her. It’s also nice to see her smiling.

To answer @bdxpelik‘s question in their post, yes I’m also freaking out about this scene. It’s too sweet and heart-fluttering not to be made into a GIF post. So, here it is. And I’m positive that’s a sparkle of genuine love I witnessed between them.

Aww… Min-jung and Seo-woo make for a very sweet mother-daughter pairing. This scene warmed my heart.

    I have rewatched this scene so many times. That’s probably the first time Seo woo has shown affection to MJ as her child.

    And she said “I like Mom more.” ;A;

    Dang. It would have hurt for Yu-ri to hear that.

This whole scene is comedy gold. I couldn’t stop laughing watching everyone throwing Song-hwa a weird combination of fondness and dirty looks. And it’s even funnier since Jeon Mi-do, the actress who played her, is mainly a musical actress until her first drama role in Mother.

I love this soju rendezvous at night. It’s not too impossible to hope that this “one-sided” friendship Yu-ri has cheerfully built with Min-jung will actually turn into a real one, right?

Because I always need freaking out and silly Kang-hwa on my wall to help me wait for the new eps to come and break-heal my heart again.

(And also him doing his absolute worst at pretending that there\’s nothing wrong with this whole situation. At all. *blinking nervously*)

Everybody needs a caring and no-nonsense best friend like Hyun-jung. Her smacking down those nosy moms in verbal showdown was so satisfying to watch. She is such a girl crush. 💕💕

It\’s little moments like these that feed my hope of seeing Min-jung stays with her beloved family by the end of the drama.
I squealed at this unexpected display of sweet and tenderness between Kang-hwa and Min-jung. For a few precious seconds, they seemed to forget the long and sad history that stretched between them. And I want more.

Am I the only one who got teary-eyed at Seo-woo\’s equally quiet gesture of love towards Min-jung? I love these two so much I don\’t want to see this little girl saying goodbye to her mom.

    I want more, too. I want LOTSSSSS MORE. And it’s funny to me how Min Jung just straight up asked, “did you beat me?” 😂😂

    I feel really bad for Yu-ri but straight up, she’s dead. The living has to continue living and sadly, the dead does not. Maybe before she goes, she can help these people who are all hurting learn how to heal. Min-jeong genuinely cares for both Gang-hwa and Seo-woo so I wish she won’t proceed with the divorce.

After savoring it as long as I can, I finally finished the audio drama of Mo Dao Zu Shi today. It’s amazing that even after consuming this story in 3 different medium, the feelings it evoked in me never lessened. If possible, I love it even more now. It was a wild journey and I will certainly miss the subbing team’s unexpected comments and witty notes throughout the eps (suibian subs jjang!!).

Here’s a highlight to some of my favorites:
They used a real 2 years-old to voice A-Yuan. He baby giggles and fangirls die.
this and that happened ( Ν‘Β° ΝœΚ– Ν‘Β°) Pretend that you’re the grass beneath them
Lan Wangji LAUGHS!! MY CROPS ARE WATERED MY SKIN IS CLEARED MY GRADES ARE ON TOP
*Wei Wuxian kissed Lan Wangji’s cheek* lwj.exe has stopped functioning
Behold the flutes and guqin of censorship

Somehow, this felt like a real goodbye to this wonderful tale. For the third time, I have to send Wangji and Wuxian to their future path and I’ve never been this content. Goodbye and good luck to your future endeavor, WangXian. Thank you for letting me have a blast alongside you two for the last few months. 👋👋

P.S. The extra episodes “Accompanying You to Sleep” was a perfect ASMR-like experience. Try it if you haven’t.

    This sounds cool. I want to check it out when I have more time [and also finish the novel- hope I can remember everything that has happened in the plot since it’s been a few months)]

It\’s playing time with Dad!!


[The reason we don\’t entrust our daughter to Dad.mp4]


[I\’m the happiest when I play with Dad]


[I\’m the mischievous Seo-woo who likes to play around in the shooting location~]

P.S. Our resident cutie wish you all a happy weekend, beanies 😊😊

I just need to save this on my wall so I can watch this 15 seconds perfection on loop. And because freaking out Kang-hwa is too hilarious and cute not to share with you all. You are welcome. 😉

Pfft… Poor Dr. Jang has to deal with these two crazies.
(It’s nice to have Ahn Nae-sang played a funny and good character for a change.)

Sometimes, when I was too tired to do people-ing, I wish I can reject it as coolly as Min-jung.
