Beanie level: Eunuch in drag

Pegasus Market final episode, random thoughts (while trying to remain vague to avoid spoilers):

— Aww, I can now imagine In-bae being the young girl’s overprotective father figure / uncle…
— Louis Vuittuuu ? lol
— I didnt expect that person to catch the discount man!
— I loved the ending credits when they showed the webtoon character (if any) each actor played.
— did he really do that to his hair?!
— I miss the Bbaya choir and dance shows.

I loved Pegasus Market.
Eventhough it was just 12 episodes, I feel that it was the proper length. The last episode was uneventful and we got to wrap the story up.
I’m not sure if the spin-off would be as good (will Kim Byung Chul join?), but I’ll definitely give it a try, if it’s available and subbed.

Sattuuu !

I couldn’t take a screenshot of the scene, but I’m going to print this out and post it on my cubicle wall at work… to remind myself to just do my best, not the impossible.

At times like this, just do what you’re best at.
They don’t expect you to do the impossible.
You should think of what you’re best at.

I finished episode 8 of Pegasus Market.
I previously saw a spoiler about Manager Moon’s mother.
I also remembered how one of the female characters in Melo Suits Me cherishes her loved one (in episode 1).
I prepared myself throughout the first 7 episodes.
But I still ended up bawling my eyes out.

    Xu Kai’s new drama, titled, “Once Upon A Time In Lingjian Mountain” began airing this week, on iQiyi (but I’m sure there’s subbed episode floating somewhere on the internet if you don’t understand Chinese 🙂

    Huehhehe He’s such a bully!!!!!!!! But at the same time, he was always there ready to help when she needed one…

    That same night when they were the only ones had to train as punishment….

    Their first karate class when Li Wenzhong attacked her from behind; he flying kicked him as retaliation…!

    And this all happened before he even figured out her real identity! Sigh, Gu Yanzhen………. 😪 To love you in this lifetime is not enough.

Question about Extraordinary You , ep 23-24.
About the sentences that Dan-oh, Haru, Baek-kyung are currently repeating.

0

    Are those the same sentences spoken on stage or in the shadows during their previous time/life ?
    I couldn’t quite follow.

    2
    2

      my understanding is that they are repeating the same sentences and re-enacting the scenes in the other manwha, the sageuk.

      2
      1

      They are repeating the staged version of their previous life in the shadow stage of the present manhwa (Secret). That’s part of their memory of their “past” life. But somehow some of the lines switched from Baek Kyung to Haru. And in Dan Oh’s case, she was repeating lines without even remembering.

Extraordinary You —
How about Baek-kyung’s brother? Anyone else also thinks he’s self-aware as well? He had this sad or worried look in episode 8 , and in an earlier episode (right after Baek-kyung announced Dan-oh as his woman at the birthday party).

12

    Self-aware, and probably also a character from a past manwha who has a reason to care about Dan-oh. Maybe her own brother? For sure, in this manwha, Step Brother has a front row seat to how horrible BK has been to Dan-oh, and how deviously their father is using her for his own ends.

      There was something odd about him when we saw him at Nam Joo’s birthday party. He did say he likes Dan Oh and he wants her to be family… perhaps your theory is right; he doesn’t like her romantically but maybe he was Dan Oh’s family in another lifetime.

    I noticed it in a previous episode when he told Baek-kyung to “be nice to Dan-oh noona”. There was something about his demeanor that seemed to suggest he is self-aware.

    So I am not sure if he’s self aware but he’s definately someone significant because camera’s have been lingering on him in quiet a few scenes. I first noticed at Nam Joo’ s bday.

    😢 I heard a lot of scenes were cut off once again due to censorship…….😭

    I think it’s a mix of both. Like @13infamyss has said, they cut out a good amount of the actual romance. I had heard (but don’t know how accurate this is) that they actually filmed a kiss scene but edited it out. I think they were worried about 2 soldiers kissing (even though 1 was a woman).

    Bai Lu and Xu Kai are so cute together in the BTS. They clearly are good friends which gives them great on screen chemistry 😍 Which makes sense as they were in 2 dramas back-to-back together.

    2

      Yeah that’s what I heard as well, that it doesn’t paint a good picture having 2 soldiers kissing especially at the military camp… like. 💁‍♀️ Anyways this drama came out at the perfect time China is airing propaganda dramas till the end of this year. I can see why it’s heavily censored by the government, but my poor heart 💔 I wish they had released uncut episodes somewhere or like have them release DVD/bluray.

      Love them bts. Wish they’d star again in a drama together.

I just finished Arsenal Military Academy.
However, mid-way through the show, I did fast forward a lot of scenes.

    I don’t know if it’s the Sunday blues or what. But I did feel unsettled.

    Why did we end up loosing our dear comrades? 😖 I wasn’t prepared, after sooo many episodes, to end up losing one after the other. My heart was still hurt when the ending came.

    I need to rewatch the funny scenes.

    I am ep 11! I cannot wait till i get to what you’re talking about. Ep 10’s flashback of someone’s sort of romance at the end kind of like drained me lol. I didn’t even know I fell asleep 😭 I’m continuing now!

      Ops, sorry !!! I was wrong with the episode # , should be ep 13 with the medical exam scene. Then ep 14 with the public shower scene. In any case, he can be really petty/ridiculous but would do anything to help her.

      I’m not into the Chinese vs Japanese and side characters stories much. I wish they had more scenes about Gu Yanzheng’s antics.

@bcampbell1662 Beverly: a while back, you recommended the book “The Flatshare”. I just got it and am half way through it. Thanks for the recommendation! I’m liking it so far!

You know you’ve been working too hard, when you fall asleep in your commuter train home from work, and dream about Rookie Historian Goo Hae-ryung writing codes/terminology used for your real project at work.
(And yes, I once dreamed about those codes/terminology scrolling down à la Matrix too. But too bad, Keanu wasnt there)

I had a nose bleed, as soon as I arrived to my office this morning. I’m ok, it wasn’t anything serious.
But my first thoughts were:
1. gosh, it’s going to be embarrassing with a Kleenex up the nose,
2. wae? I didn’t even overwork like in kdrama.
3. so that’s how they feel [in kdrama]. Hopefully next won’t be IV drips.
4. oh right, maybe I just need to take off my sweater. Weather’s too hot.

Go Go Squid ep 40 , literally right when they won the championship, Nian Nian cried of joy. What did Gun ask her? I didn’t see any translation there. Did he ask her why she cried?

    Yeah something about how can she watch the world finals if she’s crying over Asian championship already? lol. Gun, I cannot with you. And then she jumps for joy that he’s taking her to the world championship

    He asked her why she was crying because it was such a joyous day. She then said that she was scared half to death just now (because of nerves over the competition). He then asked her if that’s all her heart could take only just watching the Nationals
    Competition because they still needed to go to Worlds Competition together

Go Go Squid episode 37 —
Questions in comments (to avoid spoilers for other beanies)

    Maybe it’s because I had a long exhausting day at work, but I didn’t quite understand episodes 36-37:
    — what was the celebrity match about ? Did Gun and Solo had to play (if so, is it done or will it happen later)
    — did Gun actually want and was ready to get married (in previous episodes)? Or did he think Nian Nian wanted to get married (when she wished for them to never break up)?
    — why didnt Nian Nian agree to his marriage proposal? Do you think she realize she wasn’t ready? Is it at that moment that Gun realize she has lost a bit of her own personality ?

      [1] There was a poll of who people want to see have a CTF match. Team Solo ranked on the Top 5 and were to battle the rest of the Top 10 which was Dt, Grunt, 97, Buff and someone I forgot. Hehe They played and Team Solo won. The game was edited out.
      [2] He wants to get married because apart from winning a championship, what he wants most is Tong Nian.
      [3] She lacked self-esteem, felt Gun was so great and that she was unworthy of him. When he retracted the proposal, she looked upset and asked him when he will do it next. She wants to marry him but is doubting herself. She feels so in love with that she just goes with what he wants and this is what Gun realized, too, so he decided to let her come to him when she’s ready.

          They jumped directly to the winners making speeches. It didn’t make sense. I was like, “Hold up, did you even play?!” *sigh* Oh, well.

            There were comments on Viki that several scenes were edited out as they didn’t meet the Chinese rules or something like that.

            Yup, that’s why the episode count went from 44 to 41. Chinese censorship sucks.

        Ah ‘ha ! It’s much clearer now, thanks.

        Too bad about the editing the game scene out. I’d have liked to watch it.

        As for Nian Nian, I’m glad the show went in that direction.

Go Go Squid, episode 30 —
OMG, could it have been cheesier than milk and bread (or bread and milk)? l’m laughing at Gun’s response.

        Kimbap I don’t have any brain cells left tonight from spazzing. Not even done watching ep 31. So I’m not gonna try to understand you and your cheese bread. Just dropping by to like your post,

    So the lyrics go like this:

    “Loving you is like milk loving bread
    A couple made for each other, once met you’ll never be flung away”

    And Gun’s struggle is….

    “So are you milk and I’m bread or am I milk and you are bread?”

    😂 Struggle is real.
