Beanie level: Water maid

APPRECIATION POST. 💕💕💕💕

All these comments about Jang Hyuk had me like *WHAAAAAAAT???*. Jang Hyuk, for me, is the korean counterpart of Hollywood’s Johnny Depp. They never seem to have a problem with getting into their roles, they do it effortlessly and flawlessly. And it never bothered me one bit that not all of their respective works were greatly credited, some of it were awesome, some of it were just meh. But it never stopped them. The way they give life to their characters is an art in and of itself. Not everybody can do that. To be an entirely different persona from the last one people remember you of.

I haven’t watched all of JH’s works but after seeing him in Money Flower had me thinking he’s my korean Johnny Depp. The way he can portray all those emotions had me in awe. Now, I’ve been a Johnny Depp fan eversince I first laid my eyes on his Willy Wonka in Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and I’ve seen most of his works.. And I can say that both actors just love to act. They don’t usually take roles that ‘normal’ actors would, they almost always go off the beaten track. And that for me is reason enough to appreciate them.

Now I’m not saying that we all should like them. We never could and we never will — that’s what we call preference and with that respect should also be there somewhere in the mix.

    *nodding in agreement*

    The thing I love about Janghyuk is he can overact as some people put it, but he also has the perfect balance with his nuance which made him a good actor.

    Anyway, I actually don’t mind if people don’t like him, because I’m also not a fan of many beloved actors here. People should be free to say what they love or don’t. It’s all about preference. We agree to disagree, and not all kind of disagreements should be expressed in words in my opinion.

      He does overreact when needed, emphasis on *when needed*. Hahaha! I haven’t seen the Taiwanese FTLY but I definitely liked how he portrayed Lee Gun, he was over -the-top, yes, but that’s how the writer wanted him to be and so he delivered. Maybe us, viewers, should learn to separate the actor from the character (if that’s even possible, haha!).. so as to avoid judging the actor’s next project with respect to the previous one.

    Jang Hyuk is on another level if come to acting. Watch beautiful mind or voice, you will like him more.
    Your comment about Jang Hyuk is the korean counterpart of Hollywood’s Johnny Depp, similar to my boyfriend comment when he watch Jang Hyuk in Beautiful Mind. Jang Hyuk always portray some complex character thats why may be for some people they doubt him.

      He does complex characters so well, right? I started watching Beautiful Mind back when it was airing but dropped it down bec of the lead girl, haha. prejudices, you see. But I might pick it back up one of these days. Will check out Voice as Kim Jae Wook is also there, right? Thanks for recommending! 😊

Have you ever had that episode in your life where you feel the very \’life of life\’ getting pulled out from inside you? I\’m drowning..

I don\’t think I\’d be watching any new dramas after I finished RR, Mother and Waikiki. Or at the very least I will be trying not to. I have to focus on my review and actually get my life together before it starts pulling apart (I\’m not blaming kdramas tho. Haha! It\’s just me and my lack of managing my time efficiently.) I plan to take my licensure exam by May and I\’m not even prepared yet! Whooo! I plan to resign and all that what-nots so I really have to gather my wits by now, or until after those 3 shows mentioned above are done airing. Heh.

I\’ll just check DB every now and then for updates. Just so I know what I need to watch when I\’m done organizing my life.

Also, I want Friday to come sooner than soon, and Monday to come later than late.

I don\’t think I\’d be finishing Hwayugi at all. Got stuck around ep 16 and now having read ep 20\’s recap I think I\’m putting it on hold or dropping it altogether. Waaaah, atleast Eun Tak got reincarnated in Goblin. Tsk.

Is this the year of unfinished dramas for me? Eotteokke?? I meant to finish Two Cops and Jugglers months ago but I never did until now. Is Kdrama losing its grip on me? I definitely hope not!

On the bright side, I was able to finish Money Flower which was very heavy on the heart… so I\’m keeping my hopes up.

I think I\’d be seeing Mother until the end tho.

    Yeah I am the same. I did watch episode 19 and I think I just will leave that as the ending.

DISCLAIMER: JOB-RELATED RANT AHEAD. YOU\’VE BEEN WARNED!

Boss asked me today whether I\’m still happy with my job.. Told her I\’m getting bored and that I miss the lab. And I really do miss the lab, I miss the different colors that comes out whenever I\’m mixing different chemicals, I miss the test tubes, aspirators and many more. I even miss the autoclave with its not-so-friendly smell… I miss the littlest of things that I get to do when I\’m around laboratory equipment. I miss doing research.

I\’ve been wanting to resign since it dawned on me that I\’m not made for this job. But I\’ve been trying to hold everything until after at least a year or so, so it doesn\’t reflect poorly on my job record. 7 months in, I still have to endure 5 months or so I think. I\’m not really sure if I can actually make it but I\’m hoping. Some may find me a little \’choosy\’ (I can\’t find the right term, haha), some might even think that I\’m immature. But honestly, how can you do things in a better way when you\’re not happy doing it in the first place? Some might think that I\’m lucky to actually have a job that can feed me, while others, for the most part, are still jobless… I guess I am, but is it actually worth sacrificing my happiness for?

I\’m still hopeful for that one job that won\’t wear me down the way this one does…
I know it\’s out there, I can feel it..

But for now I know I have to live in the present. How I wish its already Friday. Hooooo..😩 😩 😩 😩 😩

And this is my first life, I am entitled to feel this way for the first time.

    Can I ask what kind of job you have now? I got a job working in a medical lab and it really makes me miss the traditional chemistry/research labs I used to work in, I found working in research made me feel like I was moving forward or making progress and now I’m just sort of on autopilot.
    I hope you’re able to find that fulfilling job you’re looking for!

      My current job deals with patents and scientific journals. Sure, there are chemical reactions, but I only get to read them on paper and never saw them come to life as it does in the labs.

      And just like you, I’m mostly on autopilot. I do it because I have to and not because I enjoy doing it. I just really want to cry right now. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

    Err.. I’m currently on my fourth job and I’ve only done 7-8 months in each of my previous ones. The fact of the matter is that they were the wrong jobs and I wasn’t happy. It’s true that I’ve lost a couple of years on my resume, but they’ve lead me to where I am now – and that’s good because where I am now is good.

    I do have to say though, that while I have no regrets about leaving my previous jobs, I do regret joining them in the first place. But there is no getting those years back – and while I’m not quite where I’d have hoped to be by now, it’s a late start and that’s better than no start.

    So with some caution, I encourage you to find a lab asap and quit. ^^

      Ooooooooh hi, I feel the same way as you do. I did not have any regrets leaving my jobs, but i keep blaming myself for staying too long and think “ah this is my comfort zone”. Sigh. I know it’s all in the past and I should move on and stop complaining, but still it’s hard to forget those regrets.

      2

        Hahah yeah – It really is hard to let go of regrets, isn’t it? The more mistakes I make, the more fearful I become of taking another step. But can I just quote some of my favorite lyrics in response? ^^

        “A rolling stone surely gathers no moss
        If you can’t return, go straight through your mistakes and forget them all
        Never mind, it’s not easy but engrave it on your chest”

        In other words, to @sarassi and to me, “fighting!” hahaha ^^

    i can say that you have all the rights to feel what you are feeling and not to pretend to be ok even if you are not ok within.
    but at same time-
    1. dont get sucked into the negativities of not having your job cause if you do that you will not be able to concentrate on other positive things which are there (and i am sure there must be few if not many) in your life.

    2. You have been there for 7 months and you only have to wait another 5 months… which will pass in blink of an eye (believe me it will.

    3. you told to not to tell you to do things better way when you are not happy.. i certainly agree. i had exact same situation 3 years back. and it lasted for whole 18 months. i was badly demotivated, hurt (how subordinates treated me), dissatisfied (as work was not as per my calibre) and lonely (my family was away from my place). i used to silently cry while working and sitting along with other useless reportees. so it was not just work but many factors that broke my confidence badly. i thought ill not be able to handle a team or work ever again in future. also a tussle with one of high manager costed me my promotion opportunity and which i got 3 years late (totally 5 yrs delayed).
    but i survived those 18 months… by just one rule to let everything go wrong at office but not letting it make me miserable at my home. i used to put all my office tensions and worries in office as soon as i came out of office door.
    i started enjoying my life, weekends even more than before. i started watching many more kdramas than what i did before, every weekend shopping or movie (yes it costed lot of money but i managed).
    and at same i fought management with all my might to not to bear anything wrong or unjust.
    finally after 18 months i got away from that torturous environment. but it effected my confidence badly and i took another 12 months to get it on same lever as it was 18 months back…. and will you believe now the place i am is the best thing i could ever get. the work, manager, team everything as if its came out of one perfect dream of mine.

    sorry for long essay but i couldn’t resist sharing my painful history just to make you feel it will all gt better… just be positive and never let yourself drown in bad situation or negativity. you are stronger than any of your problems or bad work….

    hope it will help you even just a lil ill be happy.

      *hugs* I feel you. I went through almost the same things that you did for close to 2 years. I am still in the same job but things got a lot better for me in the middle of last year, to think that I was close to resigning at the begining of that year. I was getting bored with work, had problems with subordinates who had different values than I did, almost got bypassed for a promotion and had family issues as well. I’m happy that I endured it all. It took a heart-to-heart talk with my boss to get me to stay. (Really great to have a female boss who really understands you.) I’m still in the same job, which luckily got way more exciting and challenging, got a new batch of more competent officemates who don’t think bad of me, my boss still believes in me and issues at home got straightened out. So I definitely agree with you. Positivity and belief in yourself can go a long way. We are definitely stronger than what we think.

    Fighting! I’m scared right now too because I only get call backs from the jobs I applied to as fallbacks, and I’m afraid of getting into a place that I hate but I can’t help it. It’s just my first life as well, and I’ve never held a job over a year since I’ve been in school this whole time, but I can’t even use my masters degree until I have experience, so I’m applying to jobs where they ask why I’m applying when I’m overqualified…
    It’s just my first life, but I’m scared.
    Sorry, I used your rant as an excuse to rant myself…

      @hotcocoagirl you can rant all you want here, no big deal! Hahaha. What can I say is, take time to decide which company you’re going to say yes to because the regrets that would come with your decision will be something that you can’t take back but I believe you’ll always have a chance of redemption.

DISCLAIMER: Unorganized thoughts and ramblings ahead. Feel free to share a penny of your thoughts. 😉

5 more months, make that 6, and hopefully I\’ll be working a different job. I do believe that there\’s a job out there where I can complain about it stressing me out every now and then and yet I\’d still be happy to wake up and do it. A job where I can be overworked every now and then but properly compensated. A job where I can grow professionally and personally.

Millennials, as what these working generation is called by society these days tend to jump from one job to another like changing undies, but for me, I honestly think that one doesn\’t have to be a *millennial* to do so. It\’s just that for my case, I\’m looking more for that fulfillment that a job entails wherein you won\’t consider it as a job anymore but as a passion that has come to life. And the pay has to be good. Good enough to pay your bills, to be able to stash an emergency fund, to be able to set aside for investment and good enough to fund some leisure activities.

I know this sounds like I\’m never gonna find one but I\’m still optimistic. Just like those expected happy endings you never get in a kdrama (cue Cheese In The Trap), the search for that one job is part of this ordeal we call life. We may not have that happy ending ending we hoped for but we\’ll definitely get that ending we deserve. When the timing is right and when we are ready.

    As someone who’s just resigned (been working for almost 4 years in my previous shitty office haha) and currently looking for a job, I can relate to this so much :’)
    last week, i attended an interview and they need me to work immediately, but I decided to turn it down since the pay was waaaay below my expectation and I did not like my soon to be supervisor’s attitude.

    1
    1

      This happened to me too! Before I ended up in my current job, I was interviewed by a considerably big enough company. I was already considering the job as it was in my line of study even though the pay was so-so and I’m pretty sure I’d be overworked. But the plant manger’s treatment of me back in the interview had put me so down that I didn’t look back after I decided I won’t be taking the job. I have my regrets tho, but it’s the kind of regret that I can live with.

      I hope you find a job soon! 😘😘 Fighting!

    Sorry I gotta to tell you, you’ll never found it. You won’t find fulfillment and your passion until you master your job. Every job has its own downside. You will just start enjoy your job once you have more authority, but it takes time for your employer and people in the industry to trust you. So, build your endurance and work ethic instead of searching a job that fit your passion. Learn skills that will help you to thrive in the industry. Build network. Just be good, if possible make yourself stand out. If you can’t, that’s okay.
    My sister was laid off because she took maternity leave twice in a timespan of a year. She’s not standout but she had a good relationship with her clients which one of them was a pretty big company. Fast forward three years later, she got call from her client asking her to replace him because he got promotion and no one in the company fit the requirement. Who would expect a mother in her mid 30s with two kids could get a job in a big company, but it happened for my sister. My sister is not the only one. I can give you more stories like this.

      To actually hear (read, in this case) someone say that I will never find it is kind of depressing. But I respect your opinion. We all deal with life in different ways. Some things work, some things don’t. Just as long as we don’t give up fighting, I think there’s a very good chance, albeit how small it is, that we’ll all find what we’re looking for, be it a fulfilling career or otherwise. I’m happy things worked out for your sister tho! 🙂

        I’m sorry if I sound too harsh. I had no intention to make you depressed. But it’s a public room. There’s always a chance you’ll find different opinion.

        I did actually left my corporate job to become a full time college instructor in 2009. Do you know how much money I got as adjunct lecturer in 2009? Around 20 usd per month. That money was not even transfered to my bank account, I had to take it in a locket like a plant worker in old movies 😂
        I pursued my dream, of course I couldn’t expect everything will work out instantly. Money is not the only downside of working in academia, there are many other things. But I was grateful that I had enough money to support myself during the first few years, thanks to the money I’ve made from the corporate job. I bought my first car in 2013, traveled to the holy land in 2016 (it’s very important in my culture) and put down payment for my house just last year. Financially everything worked out for me, but it took longer than my friends who work their ass off in corporate world. I’m also very happy with my job, so I think I made the right decision back in 2009.

        I did roll my eyes when I read your post. Maybe because I come from different era (born in 1983, am I a millenial or xgen?). I understand wholeheartedly about the part of finding your passion. I even pursued it. The thing is once you decide it, the world usually wouldn’t allow you to be greed about other things.

        But I’m a stranger on the internet who have too much time on my fingers that i spend by spewing my opinion. So don’t be depressed by anything I typed.

          You did not make me depressed. Haha! It was more of the way you said that I will NEVER find that one job that’s depressing. But it’s okay, it’s how you see things and I respect that. 😉

          And you can roll your eyes all you want. I’ll do the same! HAHAHAHAHA. Rest assured that I am, by any means, not offended by what you’ve said. I appreciate the fact that actually read my post and shared a penny (well, in your case, maybe a dollar 😂😂😂) of your thoughts.

          By traveling to the holy land, do you mean hajj?

    I empathize with this a lot, I have that same dream, of working hard at a job that doesn’t make break down everyday when I come home (just some days is fine). I’m currently torn between just taking a job, or holding out for the area I want even though I have no guarantee to get it…

    1

      There’s this saying I’ve read somewhere that goes “Don’t hold on for too long, don’t let go too soon”. I think that embodies what you’re currently going through right now and I hope it somehow helps. As for my case, I took this job because it offers a quiet easy-to-navigate schedule as I’m still preparing for my licensure exam, at the same time I was hoping it would actually help me grow in some ways. Alas! As always, our expectations always lead to disappointments. But I’m not saying that my current situation is really all that bad, it’s not. I think today’s just one of those days where you feel you’re lost..

      1
      2

        Thanks for the advice, I’ll have to think about it more before I know if it’s helpful. 🙂 I’m also preparing for my licensure exam, and am moving states to be closer to my family, so I currently have no job, which is very frustrating… Since I cannot start working at a new job until I have my license, I feel better about holding out right now. I do relate highly to characters like Seol in Cheese in the Trap right now… Searching for a job, unsure about what my path should be, rethinking everything…

        One thing that has been getting me through these days has been the Se-hee’s words in the first episode of Because This Life is Our First, when he says that it’s okay not to be sure because this is everyone’s first life.

          That’s a nugget of wisdom right there that I have completely forgotten! Thanks for the reminder! Indeed, it’s okay. It’s more than okay, really! 😊😊

          BTLIOF was really good while it lasted with all it’s slice-of-life advices every now and then. I guess its time for us to channel JH’s resilience, SH’s giving everyone and everything a chance attitude, SJ’s badass lady boss demeanor, HR’s love for love, SG’s loyalty and never-ending support, and WS’s courage to let HR go and get her back..

    Last Friday was my last day (have taken days off to finish earlier) of a 4 month fixed term contract : shady company, no real management, as junior I had to do a lot and didn’t feel any support from the superiors , they proposed a prolongation that I refused right away, I’m going back to unemployment period not knowing what’ll I do next, if I move out to another city and many other questions, add my anxiety to that.
    I feel you I don’t have a passion for work but I like simple things , want a job that pay not too much but not too bad (cause I have studied for it), a job where I can grow professionally and personally, hwaiting chingu 🙂 aja aja

      OH MY GOD! That was how I felt towards my company. Glad you made the decision quickly. It was okay for me the first two years, then I felt like my third and fourth year was like hell. Everyone and everything slowly began to reveal its true colours and I felt like could not properly grow if I stayed. I’m trying to burry my resentment and forget what was happened in 2017 (the worst year).
      Apologize for the long rant, but I always said to everyone who experienced the same things as me “just move on and quit”.

        thank you 🙂 , but it’s not really that I quit because from the beginning it was a replacement contract, so it was normal that it ends this month, but then they proposed a prolongation of a few months (also nothing like permanent contract) and that is what I’ve turned down…so yes in some way I quit. Don’t know if I’ll be able to post for the OT today I’ll talk about this shady company, check it later on if you want some real drama office *sigh at least I can talk about it in the past now*. Anyway hwaiting chingu 🙂 , it’ll take time but one day we’ll be able to genuinely say “I’m okay”….well I sincerely hope so 🙂

    that’s so my thoughts. i am in my current job for more than 10 years now, i loved it enjoyed to the fullest. it taught me so many things and turned me into whatever i am today. and now i feel i need a better place to challenge me, to compensate me what i really deserve and at same time i should not feel like i am stuck in my comfort zone.
    in short i am also looking for a job just as you described above.
    *hope that you get it sooner* *fighting*

      @kdramaswimmer Wow! To actually stay in one job for that long that’s just amazing, chingu! Some of my coworkers have been with my current company since the beginning and it’s been 18 years or so that this company was founded. I actually admire them for staying that long. I just can’t see myself staying far longer than a year or so because I can’t see any growth for me here. I hope my next job would be better tho.

      I hope we all end up with something better in the future! Fighting! 😊😊

Recap for Radio Romance eps 7 & 8 please. Puhlease! I\’m still stuck in the office until the next 7 hours or so. And watching any videos is definitely not allowed. 😞😞😞 And I can\’t wait to go home. I have to read the recap like my salary\’s depending on it! Hahaha. Really, I just need a breather. Help. I actually can watch the ep but I have to check my back every few seconds if I do so or I might get caught. It\’s not a capital offense but it\’s enough for a special mention on next month\’s meeting. 😒😒😒

On the brighter side of things, I\’VE LEVELLED UP!!! WOOOOOHOOOO!

Tried very hard not to laugh so loud last night while watching ep 2 of Waikiki. *Tried*, being the operative word. *Tried* with minimal effort, really, and ended up laughing like I live alone and there\’s no tomorrow! Okaaaaay! HAHAHAHAHA. That\’s a bit too much. Good thing our little bundle of joy was sucking his way to dreamland that he didn\’t mind his Tita laughing so loud. 😂 😂 😂

To say that the show is hilarious, for me, is an understatement. It just gives these big rofl moments without even trying that much. The characters are so alive that you forget they\’re just acting. And by far, the cutest baby I\’ve seen in kdramaland —- Sol! Awwwe. It just amazes me how the show manages to get the kind of reaction a scene needs from her. I hope this continues until the last ep. I\’m still not shipping anyone as of the moment.

On another note, I watched Mother ep 5 after watching Waikiki which just drained all the good vibes I got from laughing in a blink of an eye, in a good way. Heh. That is if there\’s actually a good way for that to happen. 🤔🤔🤔🤔

But I love just how the whole thing plays out on Mother, how it builds up all the tension after every episode. I know it\’s depressing, but beautifully so. The cinematography and the OSTs matched the top notch acting that everyone is giving. I haven\’t seen Lee Bo Young since *Save The Last Dance For Me* (waaaaaaay too long, really) and I never really liked her character back then, because *Helloo? Who would want the main male lead to not end up with female main lead? Duh!* (take note that this was before *second lead syndrome* came to existence, early 2000s). But here, she\’s just Kang Soo Jin in the flesh. Maybe it helps that she\’s a mom and all,but one can\’t really disregard the fact that she can act. And boy, does she does it so well.

It broke my heart to have known that that lousy excuse of a human being didn\’t happen to have murdered one child but TWO! TWO!!! Makes you question why such kind of something can even exist, live and breathe (something, because he\’s not worthy to be referred to as our equals). Why can\’t he just die the most horrible death there is in kdramaland!! Ugh! I so badly hope that he never finds Hye Na EVER but what\’s a story without a conflict, right?

I still have a lot to say regarding how much I love the show, yes, love, that\’s how invested I am. Haha! But I\’m afraid this post would get longer that no one would actually bother to read it. So yeah, that\’s it for now! TGIF,Beanies! 😘😘😘😘

Can somebody make a gif out of that breast-feeding scene from Waikiki? I\’d send it to my bestfriend who\’s a mom to 5 mos old bundle of cuteness. Thanks! 😉

If only we get paid in watching KDramas, I would\’ve been rich by now! Hahaha! As if watching kdrama needs a motivation like that. If only they pay the bills, I wouldn\’t have to slave away myself doing something I\’m not happy with (yes, I\’m not happy with my current job right now). 😭😭😭😭

But I thank you, kdramas, for simply existing. For being that good old fluff of rollercoaster emotions that I look forward to every single day! For being the bearer of good vibes that gets me through slooooooow days at work.

On another note, I told myself yesterday that I won\’t be watching any more currently airing dramas as my hands are already full with Hwayugi, Mother and Radio Romance. But all these talks in the fanwall about Waikiki somehow changed my mind. I was supposed to sleep early last night after finishing Hwayugi ep 12 & Radio Romance ep 3 but my curiosity got the better of me. Ended up sleeping at 12:30 am after trying *very hard* not to wake up the whole house with the laughs that Waikiki\’s gotten out of me. Heh. I guess I\’m adding it to my currently watching list. The baby\’s just too adorbs to not watch. And yes, that\’s an excuse. But whatever! Hahaha. 😂😂😂😂

YOLO, Beanies. 😘😘😘😘😘

          You should just watch it. It’s effortlessly hilarious. Haha! I think I deserve this kind of breather after finishing Money Flower and now currently watching Mother.

    borrowing a bit if your words this is EXACTLY how i am right now..
    “If only we get paid in watching KDramas, I would’ve been rich by now! Hahaha! As if watching kdrama needs a motivation like that. If only they pay the bills, I wouldn’t have to slave away myself doing something I’m not happy with (yes, I’m not happy with my current job right now). 😭😭😭😭”
    i am also not happy with my job but still cant leave as it pays my High speed internet bil and that makes me watch my lovely kdramas. so you see i am heavily dependant on my job cause of my addiction to kdramas.

    “But I thank you, kdramas, for simply existing. For being that good old fluff of rollercoaster emotions that I look forward to every single day! For being the bearer of good vibes that gets me through slooooooow days at work.”
    indeed.. thank youso so much kdramas. you are the reason i am able to survive some worst days of my life, and able to get recharge to fight many more days to come.

    thanks for this post dear friend.

All these gifs of Yoo Ah In and Chicago Typewriter in the fanwall makes me want to re-watch the whole thing all over again. Eotteokke? I guess I\’d just have to make do with the OSTs for now.

Down to watching three currently airing dramas for now. Radio Romance, Mother and Hwayugi.

Beanies, what are you currently watching? 😉

    Nothing actually. *shock/horror* 😦
    I’m supposed to be finishing Smart Prison Living, Two Cops and Mysterious Il-seung. But have been busy with work so haven’t had time to watch them.

    Looking forward to watching Hwayugi and Radio Romance though.

    But will definitely live-watch Waikiki tomorrow for sure! 😊😊

    I’m watching Mother and Radio Romance but I feel like this week’s Radio Romance will have to really impress me to get me to stick with it.

    Nothing on my side after finishing WPL and JBL.

    I might check out completed dramas…but I got a looong list so it may take a while to choose one… or two. xD

      Hmmmm. Eotteokke? Maybe you should take this time to focus your energy on something else. Dramaland would be waiting for you. 😊😊

        Yup, I tried watching Knowing Bros/Ask Us Anything and I’m enjoying it so far. It’s entertaining enough and Kim HeeChul is a hoot. 😀

    nothing currently airing…have decided to wait until Hwayugi finishes airing to start it…

    I am watching Bridal Mask at the moment but am 6 eps in and still unsure if I should continue…i love Joo Won but he’s just always yelling but I mean I can foresee big character changes

      Wait for it to finish and then binge-watch it for a day or two? Sounds like a plan! Haha. Saves you the agony of waiting every week. 😊

    I’m currently watching Moon Embracing the Sun. It’s weird because I’m more familiar with the child cast than the adult cast 😂

      Oooooh. The kids there are already grown up! Kim Yoo Jung, Kin So Hyun, Yeo Jin Goo. I’ve watched that when it was currently airing back in the day. Hope you’re enjoying! 😊

        I am enjoying it 🙂 Kim Yoo Jung and Yeo Jingu were so cute together and set up the story really well. I didn’t recognize Kim So Hyun at first but then I looked at the cast list and realized it was her. I’m to the adult part now so now I get to see Kim Soo Hyun as the king 😍 (I’m always worried I’ll mix up Kim So Hyun and Kim Soo Hyun’s names 😆)

No more episode recaps for Mother? 😱😱😱

Four episodes in, and I\’m already hating the lousy mother for existing and I think I\’ve already killed multiple times (in my head, that is) that monster of a boyfriend that she has. I mean, I already know life\’s never been fair, but how can these type of accumulated cells be allowed to sire such an innocent offspring (I know he\’s not the father and he shouldn\’t sure as hell become one. EVER!!!!)? And no, I don\’t think I\’ll ever get around to referring to them as humans because from the way they treat KHN, they don\’t deserve to be even labeled as one. Ugh! See, I\’m so invested! This being a work of fiction but being so close, if not an exact replica of someone\’s life as of this moment is just too heart-wrenching. One could only hope for the best.

      I couldn’t agree more although we’re not supposed to wish someone harm but some people just sometimes deserve it. Heh.
