Beanie level: Errand boy
13
42

    If Joseon was still a monarchy, the royal family would be cray cray

    And the king would be dubbed His Royal Hotness, as his eagerness to connect with his citizens has led him to sleep with half of the country (he takes things too literally)

    9
    1

    One day his snake of a secretary seduced him with murder and secret, recorded sexy times (his mom was on the phone)

    The son of the murdered family was a master fighter, named Rocky for his boxing skills, and disguised himself through extreme plastic surgery to come to the palace, as only revenge could put a smile on his stony face

    8
    1

    What Rocky didnโ€™t expect, was the loneliness and trauma that the emperor held.

    Despite his need for revenge, he felt sadness for this soft broken man in wire rimmed glasses.

    The emperor relied on Rocky to do his job, but as time went on he looked to him more and more.

    Trying to stem the rising feelings in his heart, unlike anything he had ever felt before, he told Rocky to treat him as a brother.

    *not how I treat my brothers tbh*

    12
    3

    Yet with the body count in the palace rising, so did HRHโ€™s paranoia. (it didn’t help that both men were using the same beard)

    The only one who could calm him was Rocky.

    Would they survive the plot wielding women in the royal family? Neither of them had any wit, only each other.

    And their looks, of course.

    (if anyone has a screenshot of them working out together, please share here)

    Is that fake sub in the screencap above cos since when did these people talk logic? Also LOL I felt the same way in the first few eps but then gave up. ACTUALLY, if we *really* think about it, all these characters are very consistent in their melodramatic evilness, it’s just…so crazy that we Muggles don’t understand (exhibit A: burning the bird and letting it fly. Shock value A++++).

    7
    2

      Hahaha it did take a few episodes to learn the ways of this world, which somehow made Muggles like me not so shocked seeing Dementorsโ€™ appaearance but much more shocked by the burning bird ๐Ÿฆœ🔥😱😱😱

        Are evil deeds nillified for me in this world? I was horrified for half a second and i laughed for 5 seconds…. hahaha

          The royal family lives in the world of the purge, except the purge is everyday, and the rules only apply to them.

          Our moral compasses are the same as other people watching horror movies. Just like our fanaticism is only crazy in the normal way like that of sports fans (we eagerly watch fit people confront each other on our screens).

          Anyways, Jus, this is all normal. *sips coffee while finding more pics of HRH* yep, totally normal…

          To be honest, the twisty turny lack of basic morals of 99% of the population within this world makes Game of Thrones seem like child’s play.

          That said, everyone sure is pretty, and apparently if you put glasses and a vest on I will look past your tendency to, well, kill people.

          How can you not love a man who would distress appliances and clothing for you so you can have nice things without feeling guilty about taking them from the man you think is a murderer? I was touched by his thoughtfulness. (see, glasses and a vest . . . they are magic)

    Haha Coco this is amazing! Instead of a boring re-telling like The Last Miss Spencer, this drama needs to expose the royal family’s misdeeds through gif stories and Beanie commentary. Of course that might up the body count with death from laughter, but that’s better than cement or hairpins

        I used to think so. But the data suggests that the leveling up numbers are not consistent across the the entire board. Statistically speaking there seems to be no constant. Although I can hypothesize that commenting on recaps and news threads is better than the wall…

        3

          Ahhhh, I think the recap commenting theory might have some basis. I read a lot of recaps/news threads, but dont comment so much as โ€œlike,โ€ Iโ€™m more likely to comment on wall posts…

          Maybe I should switch up my strategy… hmmm… Iโ€™m just tired of being an Errand Boy, it was fun for a while, but now I need somewhere to sleep and eat ddeokbokki for a while

          Sic, what would be most fun would be to start a drama together and snark our way through it. But that doesnโ€™t give us recaps…

So, Park Seo Joon had a birthday party with famous friends. But the best part is that apparently he is best friends with Choi Woo Shik??

    Haha I remember someone (maybe even in JB and GF’s podcast) mentioned that CWS must be a reeeeeaaaally good friend to be willing to cameo as such an douchy character in Fight My Way.

      Hehe I was just thinking that ~ he mustโ€™ve had fun playing PSJโ€™s self proclaimed worst enemy. Itโ€™s funny because his cameo was such an extended one, it really made FMY for me honestly 😊

      3
      1

        For me too @hotcocoagirl! Just read the recap of episode 3 I found that I commented in several different threads how excited I was about his cameo being extended and I wonderful I thought of him as an actor, and how much I wished that his cameo turned into a real character (this was when he was still a total sweetheart in the show.) 😆 Hope my puppy will be back in Dramaland soon!

          Oh when he was acting the sweet heart I had such horrible SLS, I was so upset about it I thought it was so clever to make him evil. It was the only way I was able to let him go. (And not evil in a fun way, evil in a slimy way)

      Well, things have been rather hectic what with running around to be both bridesmaid and chef. Terribly sorry about that, Iโ€™m supposed to abide by my โ€œwash as I goโ€ rule!

@mindy Iโ€™m so sorry I canโ€™t make your wedding, so Iโ€™m sending some oppas to make things awkward in my place. For what are wedding guests for but awkward conversation and even more awkward dancing?!

I feel both jealous and awkward for whoever else have to sit at this table.

Found my soulmate. Fictional detective solves crime, and Bunter the butler (whose most helpful hobbies include photography, chemistry, fingerprinting…) replies with a radiant smile โ€œDo you want a cup of cocoa my lord?โ€

Iโ€™m in love. Where can I find an intrepid butler of my own to enjoy hot cocoa with?

Really rather upset by the shut down of Dramafever. I rarely use the service these days, but it was my entrance portal into the world of asian dramas. I easily recall the days I would check back in, again and again, throughout a day to see if a new episode was out, or just read the articles. Itโ€™s like the shutting down of the cafe where you used to meet your love when you first metโ€ฆ

Yet on a more positive note, I finally have the setting for the Korean drama version of Shop Around the Corner aka Youโ€™ve Got Mail aka She Loves Me that Iโ€™ve been working on.

The female lead is a pure lover of dramas who works as a writer and IT for Dramafever, the male lead for Warner Broโ€™s or Viki or Kocowa or some big business that wants a piece of the drama action. Boardroom and office shenanigans happen. They bond on Dramabeans (using anonymous usernames) over their shared of Healer and sageuks, bicker over whether Six Flying Dragons or Tree With Deep Roots is better, and try to arrange a Beanie meet up, only for the guy to show up and see that it is the woman from Dramafever (the company he is helping to shut down), who hates him, that he is meeting.

Ultimately, of course, he also rejects big business, and they become a tag team of full-time staff the caliber of @mary here at Dramabeans, where they can put both their professional talents and love of dramas to good use. *they might also start a rather legendary bootleg site only accessible to Beanies* *a girl can dream*

Ep. 41 of Father is Strange, a familiar face appears. Makes me wonder if the Winter General went through a cool lawyer phase before the ice cream shop? #hwayugiflashbacks he’s becoming one of my favorite side actors.

    I may have a slight side-character-crush on this actor, and the coach from Fight My Way, who was also the office assistant in Hwayugi.

      I agree ~ facial hair really does suit him. Though, he does look sharp in his one episode cameo in Father Is Strange (which I couldn’t find a picture of! The last picture is from Bride of the Century where he was pasty and forgettable and in love with his sister’s doppelganger)

      Hwayugi, the same as the first image ~ he played the Winter General and the Summer Fairy, two supernatural siblings inhabiting the same body. During the day, the brother has the body, at night the sister. Some fun world building in that drama ~

Just want to give a shoutout to the classical music Beanies of Thirty but Seventeen ~

Thanks to you I spent my days off this week under the trees sewing and listening to the Four Seasons by Vivaldi, trying out new violinists, and pleasantly surprising myself by how much music I remembered from my piano days a decade ago.

Thanks to uri Crescendo Couple, Je Te Veux along with a cup of tea is my current favorite way to start the day. โ˜บ๏ธ

    Youโ€™re very welcome! Iโ€™ve been listening to Anne Akiko Meyers and her Four Seasons rendition as of late. Her playing always seems so rushed to me, but I think itโ€™s because she always looks like sheโ€™s mad at the violin! A lot of people donโ€™t enjoy her playing as much as some other violinists, but sheโ€™s still really good.
