    Yes, it didnt work for me though. It was, to me, oddly boring for that set up.

      did you end up dropping the show then?
      I found the story a little “immature/undeveloped” but the actor/actress were able to give life to the characters.

        The leads were great and have really strong chemistry together. The storyline just felt like it just stalled at a certain point.
        I had to try and remember but yes finished it, though used the ff some at the end. There are a few Beanies who watched this at the time.

          I must’ve missed the beanies’ discussion.
          Totally agree with the song chemistry part!! I think that’s what carried the story on and also the great BFF relationship!

          I didn’t finish it. I got fed up. Interesting plot. I adore Jasper. They dragged everything on for too long for me.

            I ended up watching on 5x when nothing’s going on, 2x when things on happening and finally finished it hahaha
            Just in case you are curious, there was a happy ending, or at least the happiest they could make it considering their situation.
            The whole story followed the main leads and all the side character stories seem to pause when they stop being around the main couple…. and if they are mentioned, its to let the audience know that they are doing well…

            I’m happy it’s a happy ending for them. I really got so frustrated and uninterested that I didn’t even bother to fast forward. I no longer do that with C/T dramas. I usually just give up if it’s bad. I’ve suffered enough.

            I really wanted to drop it but the chemistry between the leads really kept me so i decided to just ff hahaha

      Very true… they could have finished the story in half the amount of epodes….

      What I learned from this show: 1) don’t be a control freak, 2) don’t force your plans on others aka communication is key, 3) love is blind….

        True, but in what way here?

          Love is blind:
          for the sake of FL, ML did not care about losing his CEO position….

This recipe seems very doable, if you have flour, oil, anything that is vegetable-like in the fridge and a non-stick pan.
And if you’re not a cook, you can still watch the video as this chef-ahjumma is just soooo adorably cute!!!!!

    I love pajeon. It’s so good. I have made it before and it is pretty easy but I’m still too lazy to do it regularly. Lol

      wow!! So good to hear!! I haven’t made one yet but would really love to try out the recipe. I’m not a cook but this video seems like it is attainable by a non-cooker like me hahah.
      Not making this regularly is okay. Making it once in a while may increase your crave for it too 🙂

    Yessss! They’re so good! I’e made them with cabbages, onions, string beans even. And some salt. Sometimes I even add some turmeric. So simple and so easy

A friend asked me for some K-drama recs and I made this list for her. Of course, it\’s non-exhaustive but I only had a short time. From my list you may think that I haven’t been getting into too much kdrama recently but that’s because I’ve started watching things halfway which I’ve never done before so that’s why I don’t have recent materials listed as I have yet finished them to give my option. Here’s the list:

Romantic Comedy:
-My ID is Gangnam Beauty
-I’m Not a Robot

Revenge of housewives:
-Avenger social club

Touching about family:
-Go Back Spouses

Melo yet moving (makes you think about life and what you are living for):
-My Ajusshi
-Prison playbook
-SKY Castle
-A Beautiful World

It’s just good haha:
-Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim
-Live

Suspense/Crime:
-Forest of Secrets
-Signal

Comedy, suspense, very overacting in a good way:
-An Empress’s Dignity
-Graceful Family

    That’s a good list.

        I’d add 30B17 to romcom, My Fellow Citizens to comedy and Just Dance to “It’s just good”.

        I have to say, I have a strange and beautiful love for Avenger’s Social Club. it may be a bit cheap and bit naff but I could honestly rewatch it a million times and never get tired of it.

          I haven’t seen 30B17 yet, am half way through My Fellow Citizens and haven’t heard of Just Dance.
          Avenger’s Social Club holds a special place in my heart, especially for the sismance.

          Maybe I’ll pick up my fellow citizens again!

    Love your list! For what it’s worth, if I were to make a list, here are some dramas I would add to the dramas in your list:

    For crime, I like Life on Mars and Watcher. In the general suspense genre, I like Heartless City. For romantic comedy, I like Jealousy Incarnate. For legal drama/slice-of-life, I liked Diary of a Prosecutor, Confession, and Hyena (still watching this, but it’s good!). For all da feelz, I like Misaeng. For most polarizing, I nominate W – Two Worlds (I will go to my grave arguing this is actually a great show overall).

    2

      Most polarizing?! 😂 second that!

      I couldn’t bring myself to watch past the first few minutes of misaeng as it just felt very depressing? Hearing all the good reviews for it, I even questioned whether I was watching the right show or not.

        It’s good! But it is a difficult watch in many ways. Maybe ‘cathartic’ is the right word? I don’t know.

    Keeping some of those recs for myself, thanks!
    The tale of Nokdu or Moonlight drawn by clouds can also be good gateways into Dramaland,l. At least for me, sageuk costumes, hairdos and sets are totally fascinating, they are what drew me in.

      Glad to be at your service 🙂

      I’m about halfway through Nodku and haven’t touched moonlight.
      I enjoyed Nodku in the beginning but when it started getting serious, I put it on hold for when I’m in the mood for some tears and pain.

        Yes, it gets a bit angsty… I really enjoyed the widow village part, and was a bit disappointed by the direction the show took. Fortunately the last episode is lovely and wraps everything up nicely

          Sounds like the whole second half is going to be like that (angsty) then? with only the ending to redeem itself?

            I don’t remember exactly the extent of the angst… but the chemistry of the OTP, the FL doing her own thing instead of typically just hanging out with the ML, and some comic relief scenes, all of that carried the show through the angsty bits for me. My overall recall of this drama is that it was nice. I don’t know how far you are, but I would definitely soldier on

    I would add my two favorites of last year: WWW Search Query and Be Melodramatic. Comedy, I guess…

      Those two dramas are 💚💚💚 It took me some episodes to get into Be Melo, but beared with it because of all the love it was getting here on DB, and didn’t regret it! It became one of my 2019 favourites too

        Its always the beanie love and recs that gets us through to finding gems. I’ll keep these two on my list 😀

Some day or one day ep 11 rant

    I’ve just finished the episode so I know what is going on and suspected it being this way. I’ve seen this actress in other shows but it is here in this episode that I truly see how much she’s grown as an actress. She’s perfectly able to act as three different personalities or should i say 2.5 personalities.

    But aside from this, man, I can feel the angst coming up in ep 12……. heart shatter even before it happens. *cry*

      Alice Ke is amazing!!! I’m hoping she wins best actress award for her excellent performance in this drama. I was never confused who is who in this drama. I knew right away when she became Chen Yun Run👏👏👏👏

      Hwaiting Mel! You’ll get your heart ripped apart some more, Stab it a little more, but it’s all good, 😅
