Beanie level: Loan shark with a heart of gold

Shaun’s ‘Way Back Home’ – which is presently facing suspicions of manipulating the digital charts, ’cause its a not so popular artist at No. 1.
https://www.soompi.com/2018/07/20/ceo-shauns-agency-directly-addresses-digital-chart-manipulation-controversy/

But what a beautiful song! Music, lyrics. The translator says the song is about:

“one man on the way looking his girl. Unfortunately she went to heaven. The man come back to their house and always thinks about her. He wants to follow her.”

Colour me swayed by the beauty of the song. I don’t want to think about controversies and charts and manipulation. I’m just glad it came tomy ears.

    Agreed. I like the song too. I’m guessing Shaun had little involvement in this whole drama.

    I feel like people are attacking this song more and more because JYP asked publicly for an investigation to be held. First there was Nilo’s song and now this song.
    I understand where JYP is coming from but I wish he’d been more ‘delicate’ with the matter. Some idiotic people and onces are spamming with the hashtags #blackpink #cheat because BP is and has been doing so well on the charts. So dumb. T_T
    The first comeback after a year… and EVERYONE had to shit on it someway or the other >.< Meh.

      You’re right about that, I think. JYP brought attention to it, and some people stan companies. *shrugs*

      Also – I’m not clear on that, but is it really that impossible for a lesser known artist to chart so well out of the blue? Isn’t that what going viral means? And/or it really is a very nice song, could it not be genuine?

      1
      1

        Yet another thing I don’t get. Apparently this song was viral in Korea when it rose to the charts, so is getting #1 such an impossible thing to do? Both Tablo and Seungri recommended this song too, and it’s such a beautiful song, I feel like it can get #1 easily even with big name idol groups’ comebacks.
        Actually I think it’s the timing. Twice’s comeback was expected to top the charts for days like Blackpink did but this song is blocking that, so fans and netizens are upset. Another reason why I’m annoyed with JYP atm. It’s one thing for people to raise issues online but for the Big3 company’s owner? On his SNS that too? That’s just inviting trouble. They should have just released a statement and do follow ups. *smh* If it’s not chart manipulation (and I get the feeling it isn’t, especially after Nilo) then JYP posting that is basically slander, even if he didn’t mention any names, people know who he’s accusing.

    I like this song, thank you for sharing! I don’t care about no.1 or not, its a good song.

I think that’s all. ^^; Six songs in To. Jenny? Found, bookmarked and posted all. ^^;
My personal faves are Grab Me and Your Song.

What should have been a short, simple, sweet and charming drama is elevated to a 10/10 by the use of this lovely OST. I really am too easily swayed by nice music. ^^

    HA, I just called in sick too. (Though actually kind of sick?) But yesterday was stressful and stupid at work and I woke up feeling terrible, so I decided f*** it, I’m not going in. Then I slept through my final alarm and emailed/texted supervisors that I couldn’t make it.

    Now for some tea and dramas and maybe diving into the books i ordered that just arrived.

      Well, now that you’ve handed in your notice, it’s officially time for you to relax!

        That was what I figured too! But also, as of yesterday I’m officially out of f***s to give. I’m rooting for both my coworkers who have interviews over the next few weeks to get good news too so we can basically have a mass exodus from our department, which would be the ultimate f*** you.

        (I thought I would call in “sick” to try to go to a conference today but I actually feel like crap, so that’s a no-go too.)

          LOL the poor new person joining. XD

          Oh no! Take care! Have chai, with ginger. And drink tons of water. ^^

          1
          1

            That’s the plan! Hydration is key. I drank a ton of water before bed too because I was feeling off last night, but alas, it didn’t help.

            Also: I know for a fact that they haven’t put out anything looking for new clerks for our dept., so if there is a mass exodus, they’re screwed. They know the others are interviewing too, so it’s not like they can be surprised by anyone leaving…my resignation was a little out of the blue (for me as much as them).

    Sorry to hear you’re sick, but I’m glad you at least enjoyed your day!

Errand Boys Incorporated De-classified Documents
Case No.B/2388/2018: The Tae Swoon Rescue
Client Codename: @kudoran

Shadow (who looks a lot like BTS’s Jin) has received a relatively simple request, but the client is a GIF expert and willing to pay. Thus, he assigns some of his best to the task.

10
32

    It sounds relatively simple, but isn’t. The client wants to meet in person, a certain Tae Swoon. This is what he looks like:

    @egads ahjumma does her research. He’s a dramaland inhabitant, from the area of “School 2017”.
    She contacts @leetennant, a hidden member of EBI, to infiltrate the locality & scope out possible locations and scenarios.


    Chingumode flies across the rooftops as she scours the area, and sends back detailed images.

    The images are scrutinised by Shadow and @fatcat007 and possibly Secretary Ma.
    Kitty’s brilliant brain kicks into action. She has a plan.
    Shadow loves it when he hears what it is, and it is approved in his unique, trademark, worldwide handsome way!

    Let’s get it, Errand Girls!

    6
    0

    The plan depends heavily on an unexpected piece of information that was discovered by Chingumode as she followed the target, Tae Swoon, around while he rode his bike. Chingumode’s rooftop skills came into much use:

    In the meantime, @hotcocoagirl‘s journalistic skills are also called into use. Does she know of any Shady Rental Stores where a certain type of discarded item can be obtained? Or perhaps an stolen one? It must not, in any way, be traced to EBI.

    Coco scoffs, “Are you questioning my skills? Check out the Unnamed Alley in Heartless City – it’s a noir district leagues away from the clean, child friendly locality of School 2017.”

    Since CM is tailing Tae Swoon, @wishfultoki & @cloggie are assigned the task of procuring the desired item.

    Pretending to be a musical geeeenious – oh wait, she actually is – Toki looks fabulous as she sweeps into the Unnamed Alley the day before D-Day and distracts everyone outside with a beautiful, impromptu piano performance –
    *cue song of Toki’s choice*
    A picture of Toki that say:

    – while @cloggie uses her martial arts skills to decimate everyone inside:

    and escapes with the desired item.

    7
    0

    The plan has been set into motion. The amnesiac @neener has escorted the client, Kudo, to the “meeting spot.”

    10 minutes before T-0, a call is made to Attractive KMan Inc (AKI).
    *insert mandatory PPL*

    “There is going to be an accident on The Perfectly Safe Crossing in 10 mins. Better send an attractive Korean man nearby!”
    @egads ahjumma has hacked into AKI’s servers, and ensured that the emergency assignment goes to Tae Swoon. CM’s crucial piece of information: Tae Swoon is an employee of AKI!


    Who’d have thought? Well, EBI discovered his secret, and is willing to use it.

    Tae Swoon hops onto the motorcycle and flies to the scene!
    <img src="https://media1.tenor.com/images/61d879836bf69d0a126cbdf8355d7eed/tenor.gif&quot;
    He's just in time!

    Another motorcycle is bearing down at top speed upon a young lady, about to cross the road at The Perfectly Safe Crossing. Quick! He must rescue her from the impending danger!

    He abandons his motorcycle, and runs towards Kudo, and grabs her just in time!

    Kudo is only splashed with dirty drain water as the Motorcycle of Doom rushes past. *phew*

    6
    2

    The Motorcycle of Doom flies past Kudo and Tae Swoon, and comes to a halt, some 10 mins later, at a pre-designated point. The rider takes off her helmet – it’s cloggie!

    Looking mighty pleased with herself – the timing was just right! She did well.

    Shadow, the Errand Girls & @egads ahjumma cheer, as CM slips away quietly, unnoticed, her deep cover safe.

    The End

/Secret Message to EBI & to Beanieland/
.

*static: do you receive?*
.
.
*are you asleep?*
.
.
In light of recent events, namely Coco\’s arrest by a known member of the Villianous Brotherhood of the Chequered Lees, G has decided it is time to reveal a few secrets:

1. @leetennant was a hidden member of the EBI, known only to Shadow & G, who was once an Errand Girl herself, a long, long time ago.
See for proof: http://www.dramabeans.com/members/greenfields/activity/546747/#acomment-546850

Across the rooftops I fly
Running errands until I tire
If only I had a rooftop room
To dwell
To rest
To wait
Until the loan shark comes
And cooks me jjajangmyeon
Oh damn, that really doesn’t rhyme.

2. G has been preparing for this for a long time, her alternate profession as a loan shark. G is happy to declare that she has finally saved up enough money to not only have her own rooftop room, but also open her own loan shark agency. Lawyer by day, loan shark by night, G is practically a time management geeeenious. MUAHAHAHAHA

G is now a Loan Shark With a Heart of Gold!
Many thanks to @kudoran for the tremendous support offered in setting up the agency.

Let me know that you have received the message! Must be kept from the Chequered Lees at all costs!

    I’ve been eyeing some new equipment for the Errand Girls. Scooters, ear pieces, and some funky new camera glasses because keeping tabs on the Chequered Lees has really squeezed our resources.

    Can you loan us a few bucks? You know I’m good for the payments.

      LOL I should have expected this. *shakes head*

      As a loan shark with a heart of gold, and a friend of the EBI, it would be inconsistent with my character to refuse. Thank you for bringing me my first client, on the opening day itself. (MUAHAHAHA)

      Consider a few bucks loaned. Kindly let Shadow & EBI know that as a friend, I am willing to accept repayment in Yoongi gifs. If none are available, Namjoon gifs will do too.

        Thanks for the loan G. I will definitely put it to good use, and will diligently scour the web for Yoongi and Namjoon gifs.

          … if you want to use part of that loan to send me some yarn in prison? I promise I’ll use it to make black Beanies for EBI with it!

          On another note, we need to warn Errand Girls to be careful with the cameras. The senior members of the Chequered Lees are so horribly handsome that they can break cameras with one look. Also, there is tremendous potential to be seduced by the enemy… 😥

          5
          4

          I suspected this would happen the moment you said you’re good with payments. =.=

          Nvm. The money is yours to use – clearly you haven’t passed it on to EBI for equipment. =.=

          Nvm. I take repayment in Yoongi gifs anyway.

          2
          2

            This Ahjumma is hopelessly weak when it comes to online sales, especially books and yarn. Late night, insomniac shenanigans have led me astray. Deepest apologies Errand Girls.

            That’s a gorgeous gif! Truly one of G’s favorite moments with her UB. ^^

      Do you receive?

      All three options are on the table. I’d advise you to pick one depending on the result you wish to achieve:
      A. If I am your lawless lawyer, I can get you out (il)legally, but your freedom would be legal. You’re safe, clean record, no longer on the run. Cons: You’re obviously a threat to the Chequered Lees so you’re a target. BUT you can legally seek protection.
      B. If I loan you bail money, you’re out, but with strict conditions. Any breach would land you back in jail. Limited freedom – but that also means you’re less of a threat to the Chequered Lees.
      C. if I help you pay for a prison break, you’re out illegally, on the run. A definite threat to the Chequered Lees since you’ve got nothing to loose, and unsafe – since you can’t seek legal protection either.

      This attorney is ready to help you Coco! Just let me know your choice.

Sico & Sera are at Entertainer in training; and Muchie and Pakalana are Loan Sharks. That means I’m the fifth most active non staff beanie of all time since the new site!

            WOW! That certainly is a small group.
            re: time spent on DB, I’ve cut down on my big GIF posts and that has given me time to do other things. So yeah, it depends on the posts. For you, you can look at it as the equivalent of 70% WhatsApp messaging. So, you’re pretty much communicating with people. That’s not so bad I think.

    “I had a feeling that GF had some secrets up her sleeve… lawyer by day, loan shark by night! No wonder she had so much information on the Shady Allies of Seoul. She is a worthy foe for Prosecutor Lee though! I’m glad she’s a friend with a heart of gold.”
    Secretary does a Lee Jun Ki impersonation. He’s hopeless.

      Muahahahaha – so long as the Chequered Lees don’t know. And yes, it looks like you’re on your own with RRSS for a while. ^^; Don’t worry – it’s fairly doable. You do need to support the Errand Beanies with a place to stay though, occassionally.
