    Who’s your fav kdrama Dad?

      Turns out that answering this question wasn’t was easy as I thought at first because there aren’t that many good dad’s that I can think of–and I went through my entire watchlist over at MyDramaList.

      Dad:

      Park Dong Hoon, My Ajusshi. Not without his flaws, but he thinks of this family and tries his utmost.

      Shin Myeong Ho, Oh My Ghostees. I gelt badly for him when he found out the truth and he had a ton of patience with this son.

      Grandpa:

      Park Geun Hyung, Panda and Hedgehog. He was pure unconditional love.

        Yes I agree on Park Dong Hoon – he does try his best. Although I watched Oh My Ghostess, I don’t seem to recall who Shin Myeong Ho is……oh well google time….

      I will be shameless and jump in and say Park Mi Young’s dad in Healer (sorry can’t remember his or her name in the show) and the dad in the weekender What Happens to My Family. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo’s dad also deserves a mention. And also the dads in Reply 1988 – I guess I don’t have an absolute favorite hee…hee…

      How’s about you?

        Taek’s Dad in R1988 played by the awesome Choi Moo Sung. Ahn Gil Kang was also superb father in WFKBJ and Tomorrow Cantabile.

          Oh yes, I adore Taek’s dad – he is the stoic and quiet sort but such a marshmallow inside.

        My absolute favorite drama Dad is from a Japanese dorama – Tonbi. Highly recommended to anyone that wants to watch a family show. ^^

      I liked the father in Cinderella’s Step Sister a lot.
      He was not demonstrative, but he saw everything and loved his whole family without reservation…

        I didn’t watch Cinderella’s Step Sister but I’m sure your choice is excellent! 👍🏼

Now that I understand this group and K-pop a bit more, I can actually appreciate this Choreo Vid. for more than just the dancing. #kpopeducation #thatdamngood

@greenfields I heard this song today and liked it. It reminded me of B1A4 whom I love for their playful nature.

Pandora always recommends the songs I don’t like. Thx @greenfields! The choreo is quite good in this one too!

    This song IS Dope! I got scared off by the title at first, thinking that it was either gonna be dumb or about drugs (or maybe both)

    but instead it was awesome. I’m not adding anything more, green said it perfectly. 😂

    Yay! Do you like Dope? It’s the second Bangtan song I heard and it pretty much sealed the deal for me.

    On YT, you can click on CC for the subs – BigHit kindly adds them for international fans. XD

      Yup, yup. Liked it and had subs up. Understood it a bit more now that I have context and info. 🙂

        Yay! 😄
        One last song I’d recommend is”ddaeng” for its Hwatu (Korean card game/gambling) references. “Ddaeng” has at least five meanings not including it being the sound of the buzzer when someone gives the wrong answer. ^^

        More “Korean-reference” songs another day.

          A song I know!!! I’m getting somewhere. lol. Had no clue about the lyrics though. Just listened to it a few times. I like that one too.

          2
          6

            Hahhaa great! The lyrics of ddaeng are far more punny than the song suggests. And ddaeng itself has multiple meanings. Side note: I love RM’s part at the end where he stutters in ‘fear’ of the criticism re his pronounciation. ^^

            @fatcat007 – Ikr? Since we’re on @hades‘ wall, I’ll answer more specifically or it’ll be useless gushing.

            I LOVE singing along to Cypher Pt. 4. The refrain, “I love, I love, I love myself. I know, I know, I know myself. Yo players haters you should love yourself” – is SO GOOD. I really do feel like it’s positive reinforcement & makes me love myself. And I thought they couldn’t up it, but ddaeng is possibly even better. “You wrong, me right, jal bwa, ddaeng!” End of story. Won’t let anyone’s judgment hold me back. Haha. ^^;

            2
            0

            yes I totally agree with you gf ^^ that’s why I love cypher 4 so much

            And how I personally feel about ddaeng: it feels like after the last cypher, the boys are in a very chill/celebratory mood, they’ve left the haters far behind. So their anger has kind of gone down. (hobi never sounded angry in any cypher to start with haha)
            Considering how fired up Joon was in cypher 4 but now he just smoothly raps in ddaeng feels like he’s just sitting back in his chair & telling the haters that they can never catch up lol.
            I feel like I just expanded on what I said earlier haha. I’ll stop.

            sorry for spamming hades

            @fatcat007 – ABSOLUTELY right about the diss tracks after the fourth Cypher! <3 I love the Cyper 4 performances, not the studio version, because the rap line are so clearly feelin' it. XD

            Mic Drop's "majimak insayah" was clearly not the case and I'm so glad. I need the occasional diss track in my life! 😀

      BTW, re: Pandora, I meant that it never plays the songs you guys know which I like, like this one. They play the less popular ones oftentimes.

Ok. I chalk up my harsh criticism of Pentagon’s live performances to a brief moment of insanity. That and this performance wasn’t exactly the best. Everything was weak sauce there. Probably my expectation were way to high when I watched that. Probably it was the crappy source quality. Anyways, the choreography below restored my faith in them. I LOVE THESE GUYS!!! #kpopeducation

    Jinho is such underrated talent. I read somewhere that he was supposed to actually debut with EXO but then some stuff happened last minute and he obviously didn’t and then switched over to Cube. He’s our short lil bean with PIPES. <3

This is the first time I think I laughed watching one of these things–granted, I haven’t watched that many. Their song “Shine” is probably my favorite of the moment. It’s stuck in my head I tell you. It has so many cool moments.

So I went looking for live versions of it, and quite frankly, I think they suck live. However, after watching this guide, some of these guys are seriously talented!

I’m slogging through my wall looking for a particular post. Haven’t found it yet. What I am finding is how quickly things change in a short period of time. For example, I was never really a boy/girl-band K-pop fan. That changed recently. I found this post that taked about The Great Seducer‘s reference to Baepsae and how the BTS song “Silver Spoon (Baepsae)” explained it. I completely forgot about this song. I’m glad I found it again.

I\’ve redone the HTML formatting mini guide. You can find Part 1 here and Part 2 here. As mentioned in the guide, you can use this web app to test your posts. While the app has a significant number of HTML tags, most of them do not work on DB. If you have any questions or if I\’ve made any errors/mistakes, please let me know.

    Thank you!

    Does this mean we won’t be limited to 5 pics if we use this on our fanwall?

      I haven’t tested that, but I’m guessing you’d still be limited buy the larger character world limit. I think it’s 1,000 or something. Either way, I think our fellow beanies might appreciate it if we didn’t go too overboard taking up half a page. 🙃

        I know how to get round that character limit but like you said, I’m not about to post my thesis or something.

        For the pics, I guess I’ll have to try. I’ve been wanting to post as many pictures as the kdrama psychopaths on their walls but 5 isn’t really doing the job.

    About the hyperlinking, can we use it to post more than one video (say, from YT) on the fan wall?

      Indeed. That’s the best workaround that I know of for that. Seriously wish the would allow you to embed multiple vids like GIFs and pics. One day.

      What trouble are you having?

      I’m actually redoing the guide, so I’m testing out what might happen to beanies when they try to do certain things.

        It’s the same as what happened with you. When I open the link, I get a 404 message and a quoatation mark after the url in the url bar.

        So when I open the above hyperlink, this shows up in the url bar

          I used your previous guide to hyperlink the video when I got that message

            The problem is most likely due to the quotation marks. Do you copy paste from MS Word etc.?

            0

            No, I used notes, and the quotes were matching, not opening closing ones.

            What did you do differently on the next post? Because that worked fine, but this one did not.

            0
            0

            Try typing the HTML text for the hyperlink directly on your wall. Make it short because you’re not copy pasting and you have to work with the character limit. Post it, and if you do it correctly, it should post as it should.

            Now, try typing the same thing into notes. Copy paste from there onto your wall. Chances are it wouldn’t work. Let me know if it does or does not.

            Ah, that’s probably why. It was a long post, I had a video attached and I was trying to hyperlink 😅

My equivalent would be a K-Drama. 😅 Don\’t ask me which one though.

That\’s not too much to ask for/unrealistic.

Sure…

…and where are you right now? Why are you here?

In all fairness, I would have jumped too.

You gotta love the gradual change in their relationship that\’s making it difficult for the two to remain professional.

    Before they showed her face I thought ‘I bet it’s not even that scary’ I freaked out just as much as he did like damn she looked like the grudge or something

    This makes me so happy. Both of them are just killing it!! PSJ’s startled face, PMY’s horror flick expression (and that zoom 😂)

    The sub elsewhere makes more sense than the one on Viki: “I’m not cute, I am fatally attractive.”

      re: subs. Sigh. And here Viki’s claim to fame has always been the quality of their subs. It had some odd sub moments in the first couple episodes as well.

So, I picked up on the suggestive nature of the request, but I really didn\’t pay it much mind for what it was.

I got the whole ramyeon innuendo, but much like Young-joon\’s earlier sleepover request, I didn\’t pay too much mind.

It was only after I read @charlieblue17\’s post about it did I notice the awesome let\’s sleep together but not really parallel.

14

    actually the parallel works on multiple levels: at the superficial level both statements say ‘I am interested in you romantically’. On a deeper level it also works: he actually asked her to stay because he was miserable and needed her around to keep the demons at bay; she offered ramyeon because she knew he was sad about what had happened at dinner and she wanted to cheer him up. This was really cleverly done.

Here we go again…Wait, what!?

I\’m sure this is going nowhere. It\’s too early for this to go anywhere.

They went there! They went THERE!!!.

I’m sure this will be plastered on everybody’s walls by now, but that ending! Drama history has shown that a too good to be true situation like this often results in:
[1] A retraction of the confession.
[2] The other person saying no, when they mean yes; or saying no like a A Poem A Day swat resulting in viewer heartbreak and frustration for more than a few episodes.
[3] Full blow denial/noble idiocy.
[4] A love rival who should even exist making everything frustrating like Temperature of Love

Why isn\’t there a, we will be normal dramaless people for once and stay the course of the drama free goodness!?

I haven’t watched the previews and I refuse to watch them. I’ll just keep my blissful ignorance that I’ll happily be surprised and things will be ok next week.
