Beanie level: Jang Geu-rae

I don’t think I can watch Just Between Lovers’s episodes from this week before I know the ending for sure. I’m too invested… JUST LET HIM BE HAPPY. LET ME BE HAPPY

Instagram users, I need some help! So I just made an Instagram (finally caved in), what kdrama/korea related instagrams do you all follow?

1
7

    i follow idols account,official idol group accounts,actors..any one you like in particular,i could help you with usernames.

    when you search for official accounts,check if there’s a blue check mark beside the username.that blu check mark means that is that person’s or group’s verified account.there are lots of fake accounts over at ig

    another way is to use the hashtag, in the search option, type the name of the actor or drama title and you would get a lot of photos to look at

    travelgram_korea account,you’d see photos of korea – landscapes,cityscapes

    I hope this one would help you.enjoy instagram!

      Thank you!! I thought I’d have trouble finding the accounts but I only had to follow Yeo Jin Gu and the rest were in the suggestions hehe. Also followed travelgram, so pretty. But the hashtag search is definitely my favourite

    Javabeans also has an IG account πŸ™‚

    I dont know if you might like it, but in addition to may fave actors/actresses, I follow kdrama_fashion. The person behind it meticulously posts information about the fashion/accessories that characters sport in dramas and I always find it fun to see who wore what. πŸ™‚

    P.S – I love your profile picture. Penguin chicks are the CUTEST. <3

      Ooh now I can finally know where they get all their pretty coats from. I have to say it must not be easy to run an Instagram like this, respect to the owner. Thank you!! They really are the cutest things <3

    Korea in Spring..and 🎉🎊Congrats!🎊🎉 on the exchange program. It is kinda scary but very exciting too. I totally enjoyed my semester in Jakarta when I did my exchange program in college.

      Honestly I am a bit scared! It is definitely outside my comfort zone but that’s where the fun and personal development is right. Ooh Jakarta! Living on an island must have been awesome. I love the sea but we barely have any πŸ™

          Ooh, Manila! Then you must already be used to it. I’m from Romania so South Korea is a whole new experience. Luckily a friend of mine is also going, but we’re at different universities TT
          I would have replied faster but I spent 20 minutes looking at pictures of The Philippines heh, definitely a must visit!

            Wow and that is definitely a welcome change in environment. and having a friend in the same area/country brings a sense of comfort.

            Romania, 1/6 places in Europe I’d really like to visit along with Czech Republic,Spain,Germany, Portugal & Iceland. I hope one day you’d get to visit the Philippines

2017 was the year I started listening to OSTs. Beanies, what was your favourite OST of this year? I really liked CT’s Satellite

7

    This OST is definitely one of the best for me, absolutely love it, I still have Satellite as my ringtone!

    I also loved Ruler’s OST, the drama wasn’t good but it had really good music!

      I might steal that idea and set it as my ringtone. I’m surprised I haven’t thought about that

    I’m really liking Just Between Lover’s OST – particularly the “I sing a song, you sing along” one. No idea where I can get hold of it.

    My other favorites The Liar and His Lover, Crude Play’s ‘I’m Okay’ & Strong Woman Do Bong Soon’s “Super Power Girl”, both at a time when the lyrics and music meant something in my own life.

    I haven’t seen Chicago Typewriter so can’t comment on that. ^^

    1

      These are some good choices! Super Power Girl is also one of my favourites, it’s one of those instant mood lifters that I listen to when I need some power. Actually, I think I’ll go listen to it right now, since I’m planning to study all night TT. And I’m currently liking everything about Just Between Lovers, including the ost of course
      Chicago Typewriter was really good! If you don’t have what to watch one day, do give it a try. (unless it’s really not your style)

I am a professional fast forwarder but Just Between Lovers is one of those rare dramas that I want to watch from start to finish

    And savour every moment!

      Indeed! I love the tone so much, it’s quiet and sorrowful but not boring or dragging at all. I hope they manage to make it engaging until the end. I think I also enjoy it a lot because all of the actors are doing a great job portraying their characters so far (I missed Pillar, so happy to see him!!)

      3
      1

        Yes and I’m absolutely loving the pace, it’s slow in a way that it allows you to pay attention to every subtle motion, every expression, every dialogue and the music is beautiful! (Pillar, LOL)

I finally finished Goblin, it was one of the most depressing endings ever to me. Need to watch something cheery asap

A few weeks ago I signed up for making a presentation about Korean slang IN KOREAN and I can’t comprehend how past me thought that is a good, realistic idea. I’ve been staying up until 4am for the past 4 days

      Well the presentation is tomorrow (and it’s past midnight here already) so there’s no time left to practice TT but here’s a link of the ppt if you want to take a look https://1drv.ms/p/s!AmTjp6MCJEHHhi6Vo8do4FDicMf6 . The much bigger problems are that I have lot of words that are really hard to pronounce AND I’m afraid of public speaking so I foresee a lot of stuttering

I really hope they develop Lee Won Geun\’s character in Jugglers. Give me some backstory, some feelings, anything! I hope they don\’t just make him a cute chaebol puppy second lead whose only purpose in this story is to fall for the girl. I know it fits him but I want more. He can do more.

    Also, he barely appeared in the first two episodes! Huhu

    The teasers implied he had a separate arc… πŸ˜€

      Thank god! I hope they make it at least somewhat satisfying (that’s all I want show, I don’t even expect more). His character was just so painfully… forgettable in the first 2 episodes. Time to rewatch videos from Sassy Go Go.

    Since it barely started, we’re just getting to meet everyone. But yes, let’s hope we get a little more story with his character!

    1
    0

    I was hoping for the same thing! We barely got to see any of him and Kang Hye Jung. I hope their story picks up in the next few episodes.

    For what it’s worth though, he’s was very very cute in the few moments he was there. Like adorably bratty! But yes, we need more!

I was watching the new vlog with captions because I was eating something crunchy and kept missing words, and then they showed the epic “Let’s go….to our house” BTLIOF moment which got captioned as “Arriba….cocky” and seeing See Hee talk while reading those words killed me

    OMG. YouTube’s auto-generated captions are a blessing 😂

    1

      True right? Yesterday as I was watching a KCON lightning round vid, Javabeans mentioned Lee Jun-ki and they subbed it as “junkie”!😅😂 Now I see that they were autogenerated, that’s why.
      However,hope you wouldn’t mind a random question!
      Unni, can you download youtube videos WITH soft subs by using FYTD? Because whenever I did, only the video was there, without subs.
      You don’t have to answer,it’s ok! It’s just that an old problem resurfaced when I saw the words youtube and captions!
      (Hope you are not angry ✴ puppy eyes✴)

        Poor Lee Minki! But it’s funny nonetheless. Ah I actually only downloaded youtube videos in mp3 format until now (didn’t even know what fytd meant, and most results showed it stands for fiscal year-to-date so I was really confused a moment there xd) but I figure downloading one with subtitles would be a bit more complicated. I’m not angry at all! I’m just sorry I couldn’t help in any way TT. And wow, this is the first time someone calls me unni, I’m usually the dongsaeng hee.

          FYTD is Free Youtube downloader. Surprised you didn’t get that result,since that software is the most famous,safest and the official tailor-made downloader for youtube,methinks😕
          And I’m saying this since it could be helpful to you, FYTD doesn’t take much GB to install, is very fast,easy and helpful from mp3 to mp4 with the only cons being the mentioned soft-sub problem and the software not being phone-friendly. I use it in the PC.
          Uhh..I feel awkward,but I think I should clarify that I said Jun-ki, not Min-ki. It’s my fault for posting an unrelated thing. Sorry😳
          It’s totally okay with not being able to reply.
          And If you like the Unni-ing, I’ll keep doing that,hehe😜.

            I found it weird too but it only came up when I looked for “fytd download”. Thanks, I will keep in mind when I need to download one! (mostly when I know I will go in an area with no internet and I need videos to watch).
            Ahahaha I read your comment more than 3 times and every single time my mind just read it as Lee Minki. The after-effects of BTLIOF are really strong. It even took me a bit to replace Lee Minki’s image with Lee Junki’s in my mind.
            As long as we make sure I’m the older one and it’s used properly. Ah, when I was 14 I was so sure I was one of the youngest here, now that I’m 19 it’s not like that anymore TT.

I finally got around to watching Goblin and I think it\’s the first drama where instead of wanting to skip everything but the romance I actually want to watch everything minus the romance

10

    Exactly my sentiments but I would minus all the repetitive brooding, flashbacks and lonely walks as well. Basically make each episodes slightly less than 45 minutes after extensive edits.

      I was just about to say that I’m at episode 8 and I didn’t see much of those just as a scene of Kim Shin brooding and Eun Tak walking alone appearead xd. Guess you are right. Why waste so much time on those when you could show us more Sunny x Reaper or more bromance

      3

      Err same and same. Except that my episodes were down to 15 mins by the end. I was watching only for Yook Sung Jae and the Goblin-Reaper OTP.

      I’m watching it at such a slow place I can hardly say I’m watching it. It’s been almost a month and I’m still just at episode 11. It’s the thing I watch when I have nothing, absolutely nothing else to do. And yet I keep on with it for the same reasons

        I guess there was a bit more motivation to watch each week when it was airing but I think I’d struggle now.

Now that BTLIOF ended I think I\’m experiencing my first kdrama slump ever and I\’m not sure how to deal with it. Been watching Japanese movies and dramas nonstop.

The scene with Jinjoo and Namgil in the last episode was hands down the most satisfying and endearing closure to a second lead\’s arc

Hospital ship making me cry from the first episode..

    The minute I saw her mother I knew she was going to pass away πŸ™

    2
    1

      I actually thought she would survive, so stupid of me! All the signs were there, nice mom, long touchy speech from the first episode, setting her up with Hyun and of course the fact that kdrama doctors always manage to save everyone besides their family in the last minute. Yet I didn’t see it coming. I blame the fact that 70% of my focus was on how cute KMH is

      1
      1

        This drama is so deliciously melodramatic with a sprinkling of cheese on top. I’m loving it thus far.

        And yeah, the whole mom dying thing was similar to the very first scene of the show on the boat. Given what they showed us could happen, you knew it would happen again. That and they needed a catalyst for her to go from the hospital to the ship, ergo, bye bye mom.

        1
        1

          Deliciously melodramatic is a spot on description! As soon as she got that axe at the end of episode 4 I started screaming and closed my eyes, that was really good. But poor guy :c At least we got our cute trio as a relief.
          Yes, the mom obviously had to go for her to end up on the hospital ship *sigh* nice moms in dramas really have it bad
