Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

Just finished Hotel Del Luna……I have so much to say but yet can’t really find words….for a show that placed great emphasis with making peace with past and moving on, the ending as sad it was, felt authentic…Reminded me of the poem….’Graveyard By the Sea’ by Paul Valarie…I think Hong Sisters did well with a few hiccups along the way and told a coherent story…Good job to IU, Yeo Jin Gu as well…couldn’t imagine a better Man Wol or Chan Sung

Also my money is on Captain Cheon Myung betraying Man Wol and she goes crazy at that…pretty sure she killed the princess too

Hotel Del Luna….Jealous Man Wol is everything….I hope this first love is not an annoying second lead who does all the usual stuff….I want another Little Sun…no crazy ex

Okay, Ji Sung can stare at me as long as he wishes and I will gladly melt into a puddle but boy oh boy Dr. John is a hot medical mess….watching for the romance…yes, I am corny

I like One Spring Night, but I don\’t watch it because It makes me want to throw things at Ki Seok, Jung In\’s father, that waste of space and utter garbage Shi Hoon……I mean come on! I don\’t want to damage my TV. It cost me money to buy that. I hope mom divorces Dad, Shi Hoon is sent to jail and Ki Seok, he can go to hell with his father for all I care….these are all trash human beings.

Arthdal Chronicles…great world building but we dont spend enough time with any character to feel for their situation…that is the problem

Kudos to Shin Hye Sun, not only is she serving emotions right, left and center but she is doing wonderfully as both Yeon Seo and Matilda. They seem like entirely different person to me. Also, hats off….pointe is hard and even season ballet dancers don’t do it right away……to do it so much even for short period of filming means she trained very very hard to get it right and Myung Soo has grown so much as an actor……..loved the new episodes

    This drama has such great cinematography!!! I was moved again by Yeon Seo and this time Matil too! Man she was so graceful, so beautiful with the sunset behind her. She was radiant.

    You are right they looked like complete different people who happened to have the same ballet passion.

    Oh, do you know ballet? I don’t know much about it, but I remember my friend in 6th grade who was a ballerina, and even at that age, the training was intense. I assumed Shin Hyesun would use a body double for the pointe, was she really doing it? That’s impressive!

      In the final scene you can totally tell its a double. Those were to legs of someone who was a professional.

      No subtlety in the editing.

      They use double at times she also does a fair share of it….you can check the bts posted

Kind Beanies,
I am back after 5 month long hiatus from dramaland. In these five months, I’ve started my graduate studies aka Ph.D. And I am frustrated with my lack of progress already. So, I started watching Korean drama to blow off some steam and I started it with My Name is Kim Samsoon. I can’t believe I hadn’t watched this little gem before. I am hoping for some more suggestions like this because I am pretty sure I will need a whole list of drama to drive my general frustration away for a while now. So any suggestions, also I wouldn’t mind if I have any fellow beanies who are pursuing graduate studies here sharing some experience with me as I am currently deeply facing imposter syndrome all the time and doing absolutely crappy things to handle them. I am in desperate need of some encouragement.

    Welcome back!
    Boyfriend is a nice, slow, relaxing watch.
    If you want something totally insane, I recommend The Last Empress (I’m not actually watching it but the beanies who are watching it are having a lot of fun).
    Just Dance was a recent sweet, slice of life drama.
    Good luck with your PhD!

    Hello there! So happy for not being the only one pursuing graduate studies and running to kdramas for some comfort!
    Here’s what I love to hear from people around me “It’s all fine! Hang in there and it shall all come to pass. Every single sacrifice will be worth it. And yes, you deserve those kdrama episodes!”
    Fighting Chinguya!!

    Ra On Ah gave some good recommendations – I’ve heard Girl’s Generation 1979 is a nice, meaningful, and relatable watch, as well. 🙂

    Currently in the midst of college, though not quite at the PhD point 😂, but I love this Winnie the Pooh quote :

    “You are braver than you believe,
    Stronger than you seem,
    and smarter than you think.”

    You got this!! You have, after all, survived 100% of your worst and hardest days. I commend you on all of your hard work! Take your breaks and be gentle with yourself. 😀 You’re doing great.

    Yep, I went through the same exact thing. I found that honesty helps. I went to my supervisor and just said “I don’t feel like I’m making progress. Can you help me?” I did have supportive supervisors who gave me tips… if not try to talk to other PhDs. You’ll find that many people suffer from Impostor Syndrome too. Fighting!

Not watching AYHT…but quick question coz I kinda know the story..Say you are suddenly introduced to a robot identical to you as if your twin and superior to you in every way…would you like it?

    superior me would probably be a much nicer person and I like friends! so… yeah I’d give it a go

    Superior me would still be souless so it would just be superficially superior. 🙂 I would like her! We could pretend to be sisters.

    Do you have the question same reason I have the question? Lol. I think I would totally take it out on her for my own failures. Lol also it would be uncanny and to see a perfect version of myself and not being able to be the one myself could break me. I don’t know. Also what about invasion of privacy? The fact that it will know everything about me is kind of like trespassing, I wouldn’t want that I think. Okay don’t mind me haha I’m kind of oversensitive right now. 🙈
    But the latest AYNH raises a lot of important concerns so I’ll rant about it bit more in my wall haha.

    “superior”
    Not necessarily hard in my case.

    “identical”
    I would want to have a talk with the designer. Then maybe see a lawyer about unauthorized use of my appearance.

    Hell no. I’d have an existential freak out and then take control of that thing and live vicariously through it.

      This reminds me of when I was at Uni. A friend of mine said to me, “I saw your doppelgänger yesterday. She was exactly like you. But thin.”
      I don’t know who she was, but I hate her.

One more thing about Time, although Seohyun has improved but her emotional acting still needs polishing..it doesn’t hit you in the heart like it should but she is doing way way better here…I don’t know why Jeon So Min turned this role down because I can picture her nailing it in every possible way…people trashed her when it was announced for no reason but she is a solid actress

    i agree with you on her emotional acting. the first scene was pretty well done but unfortunately for me the scene where she cries her heart out at the police station didn’t really faze me (maybe i’m just heartless).

      Neither did the one where she calls her mother asking her to be back or blames herself for the sisters death during the funeral…also the second female lead aka the fiance can’t act

      2
      2

        agreed. on the second female lead i’m willing to give her a chance because i’ve liked her previous roles and acting just fine and she doesn’t bother me since she doesn’t have to do much emotional lifting yet. maybe when the guilt settles in i’ll take a better look.

          The dead sister was so good but I just didn’t buy her hurt and angry act by the pool…it looked a bit forced

    The comparison which I’m making the most is between the lawyers, BSB from Secret was so much better than this guy. Therest of the cast may be greener but it’s doing ok for me.

But if we very honestly compare acting in Time with acting we got from Mask or Secret then Time is a second hand version of Secret or Mask…I can totally see the previous leads killing it

    still worth a watch?

      well….its still interesting to me after the first two episodes…like I said these writer has had better people act out her character but the acting that we get is worth the watch till now and interesting…give it a try…hard to say if they will be able to keep up the momentum…Mask had Soo Ae, Joo Ji Hun, Yeon Jeong Hun and Yoo In Young…Secret had Ji Sung, Hwang Jung Eum, Bae Soo Bin and Lee Da Hee…so I have set my expectations on the low end

        mask is legendary so maybe i’ll lower my expectations and give time a go!! thank u!!

Why are all the second male/female leads conflicted good guys who go twisted beyond repair by the end in the writers work…Secret then Mask and now Time

    It’s a theme the writer enjoys? I like it too, we have far too much of perfect male second leads and stalker female second leads.
