Beanie level: Errand boy

Aaaahhh !! Encounter is soo beautifully wistful… like even while I want them to spend time together.. there is so much dread about the upcoming angst..

This is why I hate watching melodramas.. Sigh. There is no escaping the drama in this show is there? I don’t want to drop it.. both of them are doing such a lovely job.. Here’s hoping they can carry off the angst without it getting overdramatic.

Considering I spent the last 5 mins squealing over AM’88 Bogummie… and barely being able to process Crown Prince from my squiggly feels… I’m not sure it’l be good for my heart to start on Boyfriend…
Ottoeke?!?

Am I ready to be struck down by Bogum fever as he lights my screen, the World and the Universe with his 100 Million Watt Smile ?!

Here’s to preparing my heart for slaughter from Boyfriend! <3

Beanies HELP ! I can only watch one drama… so is it

Bogummie or Hyun Bin ?! (put it this way its obviously Bogum…)

So Boyfriend or Alhambra? Or another?

    Ah.. watch Boyfriend, see Drunk Bogummy, watch Alhambra, see Hyun Bin battle Lawrence of Arabia.

        I confess I am heavily biased towards the former. 😂 But I am really enjoying Boyfriend! The languid feel, the atmosphere, and PBGโ€™s precious character.. SHKโ€™s character has me intrigued, as well. It is slow, but I like it. *cough* I had to be supported by Rabbit Beans to get through the episodes, because.. my heart.

          Haahah! You isnt biased towards bogum ?!? He is utterly precious.. and his smile is divine.. i have writtten essays in the past ! Hahaha

          He single-handedly got me back to kdrama addiction via Moonlight drawn by Clouds … and looks like this drama slump is probably going to end thanks to him too!

          2
          1

            Oh, hahaha! PBG is my favorite. Has been for years. Heโ€™s just a stupidly awesome ray of sunshine, and talented and hardworking to boot. I try to restrain myself from getting too crazy, but I truly admire and respect him. 😂

            Same! He kicked me right out of slump-territory and back into the land of the livin!

      I’m soo tempted to start on Alhambra too now that we know a little more of the story and there are augmented reality games… !!!! Frankly that’s got me more excited than even Hyun bin or Shin hye starring! Haha

I finally caught with Terius Behind Me and OMG I lurrveee it!! It’s everything I hoped for… So Ji Sub as the elite spy absolutely defenseless in the face of adorable cheeky kids.. Son Ho Joon the obnoxiously cute villain (!) and most of all the AHJUMMA SPY NETWORK !! Hahahaha!

Gosh I do love shows with bright ahjumma spies.. ala Mystery Queen ! ๐Ÿ™‚ Louved the addition of Kang Ki Young as the male ahjumma ver. :))

It had all the elements I love in a drama – fun, family, and spy hijinks!

Only wish the real spy side of the story had some meat. Think I’m gonna skip the last few episodes w/o the babies or KIS.

Till then let me admire you some more Son Ho Joon– I would do reaaally good at the Secretary’s job ๐Ÿ˜€

      Haiii! Omg i heard about what happened to East light and my heart really went out for them. Thought of you first.. hope they will get some justice.. also crossing my fingers that the other members will also speak up now that they ate not under contract anymore (which is also so sad but unavoidable & perhaps for good I guess)

      1
      1

        Thanks for thinking of me. The entire week after the news broke was really rough. I’m so glad that they are free of that company now. I though the other members would speak out too after their contracts were terminated but at this point, I don’t think they will. I think they don’t want it to hurt their future prospects which I can definitely understand. I hope that they are all able to join a better company and redebut (if they want to). I miss them alot already.
        Did you hear about the petition? We got a petition to 200,000 signatures and now the president has to respond to the situation.
        The police are currently investigating. Seokcheol and Seunghyun testified to the police for 5 hours and the PD has been summoned to be investigated. I’m hopeful that justice will be done 💛

Since Mr Sunshine is on my mind & it will be a day or two before the recap discussions come in… Care to have a short discussion w/ me here?

I dont fully get Hui-Seong\’s claim/stakes to Ae-Shin\’s heart.. There is no past attachment (uri Samurai X) or currently simmering tension filled encounters discussing love ala uri Joseon-Born Confused-American.. would finding her pretty on the first meet be enough for him to fall in love with her? As of ep 6, I sense no \’love\’ from him, since he is still canoodling with other pretty ladies at the Hotel.. nor is he an epitome of filial piety, that an engagement fixed by his parents & ignored by him for 10 years should matter to him.. He seems like a man who is sensitive to ppl & the wrongdoings around him..

Why would such a man would hold onto Ae-Shin & not break the engagement when Ae-shin wishes so? Is it simply a matter of his Dandy-cum-Noble pride ? \”How could a woman refuse me or call me a weakling/disappointment?\” Or simply curiosity for now which will turn into love later?

    I don’t think he’s so proud of his nobelty… but I can see how he might like her… she has such an attractive personality

    1
    0

    I think it was because she was the opposite of what he imagined her to be and it piqued his interest tremendously. I don’t think he is in love like /love/ with her yet, for now he probably thinks if she is the one he has to marry, it is totally not bad at all and it will be a win-win for everybody. But I think later he will fall deeper with her the more he knows her.

    3
    1

      I would have thought he would be the most ready to break off the engagement considering how he really wants not much to do with his family or their fix-ups. But yes.. I guess for the time-being it seems like a win-win for him.. since he has to settle down eventually so why not with a fiery flower?

      0
      0

    That does make sense and further feeds the theory that he isn’t simply a sweet dandy avoiding his family’s brutal legacy.. but has his own secret agenda and is part of a power play.. only we are not aware of it yet.

    I think if he didn’t have his own agenda, breaking off the engagement which his parents set up would be his priority.. My other theory is that he is stuck between wanting to ignore his parents & duties but being too polite and loving to actually do it.. or maybe even slightly spineless/ dislikes confrontations.. why else would he not speak up even a tiny bit when he was clearly uncomfortable by his grandpa ‘S watch antics and has been pampered enough to get away with saying things?

    Whatever it is, all the 5 leads have me engaged!

      In case he spies this post & does wanna have a look at their variety.. here’s a master list with eng sub links! (Psst – Start with Youth Over Flowers-Winner edition or if the singing is what your in for, Yoon’s King of the Masked Singers ep or perhaps even the latest Sugarman episode with the ‘Butterfly – First love’ cover or any of the many survival shows they have been in! )

WE WERE — Another favourite! What a beautiful ode to past relationships.. (and I will stop now!)

“Back then, we were smiling
We looked really happy
Up until now, we were just tears and shadows in my memories

We were pretty
When we met each other for the first time
Even when we fought
Oh, back then we were pretty
Back then when only looking at each other made us happy
Back then when we cried because we didnโ€™t want to say bye
Oh, us back then
We were pretty”

      I’m having a hard time figuring a fav yet! Everytime I listen to a new one, my brain changes to that! I lurrved Air too ! Could definitely have been a double title track !

      But ever since I heard that Air was inspired by Yoon’s fan-gifted air diffuser, I now imagine that song being sung not a lover but an air diffuser… … … X-/ X-/

        Air is a driving song for me. Or a plane-take-off and landing song. I think I’m gonna have to make a playlist for take off and landing songs because Big Bang is really good for travelling. Sober especially @wakimary, is my go to plane song.

            Well it hasn’t been made yet but I think it’ll have to be!!
            Oh but see my travel songs and driving songs are quite different really. Like travel songs have to sort of get you in the mood for staring out windows and into space for long lengths of time, where as driving songs have to pump you up and keep you awake and have to be good for rolling down the window and singing along to.
            But there is ofc some overlap heh

When lyrics capture your biggest everyday disappointments & struggles.. ughh.. my heart!
MOVIE STAR is fast becoming my fav from EVEVRYD4Y

“When elders asked me about my dream before
I wanted to become the president, a judge, and a celebrity
But in reality I became an extra
One late night, I got put in a van

All of my childhood dreams have gone somewhere
When I wanted to shine, everyone was shining
A streetlight in the alley twinkled once
I satisfied myself with that
Forcefully, I adjust myself to the rules like tetris”

(although I cant find a video version w/ correct translations yet.. but gives u a feel)

Also before I disappear again can I rant a little about a minor point from INAR??

I totally get the emotional pay off and significance of Min-Kyu giving the locket to Aji3 befor parting.. but really practically speaking.. how does that make any sense??? She is a robot.. and one he is going to reformat in the next second.. so he meant a robot with no memories to wear his locket?? Or he was ok with the locket ownership being randomly transferred to the Santa Maria team?? Like what did he expect to have happened with it?? Esp since it was soo precious to him

8

    Maybe it was a symbolic moment like, “Since I’ll never love another person like I love you…” kind of a moment, since he did it before he ordered the reset, and I think for the most part, he needed to do it more for his mental state of mind than for hers

    7

    I actually made this exact point in one of the recaps and my best guess it that it was his way of coping with loss and a way to put this chapter of his life behind him. He was ready to throw it away when he met with Riel on their first date and since Aji was the one to stop him from doing that, maybe it was like settling a debt.
    Maybe he assumed Baek Gyun would return it if he asked? It’s not like Aji’s supposed to leave the estate anyway.

Can a kind soul update me on My Golden Life makjang pls?! I\’m stuck w/ RealLife duties & can\’t catch up on it but am so curious esp with its still rising ratings!

I know the story till Do-kyung finally leaves home & shares house with Ji-An.. have they made up??! Have the twins made up?! Is ji-soo still being a brat? Have the adorable maknae siblings gotten together yet??! What happened both the terrible moms? Have the comeuppances been dished out?

    Also hi there all of you! Long time no see.. I’ll probably still be MIA for a few more weeks.. only my story endings curiosity monster couldn’t abide the suspense.. so here for a bit!

    Check out the My Golden Life video clips in the video section! mary and I are hanging out over there.

    Papa Seo thinks he is dying of stomach cancer. He has been pretending that he is going off deep sea fishing to make money but he is really fixing up his parents’ old place as a place to end his days. Meanwhile, his family got his test results and they show no cancer. Papa told his family to kiss off, more or less, because they all hurt his feelings a lot in the past.

    Mama Seo has been running the hamburger restaurant, but just got reprieved by Ms. No. Since no one in her family trusts her, she has kind of lost her purpose in life.

    Ji Tae and his wife are on the verge of divorce because she got pregnant by mistake and he wants to keep the baby, but she wants to stick by their contract which says no children. She moved out.

    Ji An confessed her feelings to Do Kyung, but said she will never act on them because she will never ever willingly become part of the Haesung family. She arranged for Ji Soo and Hyuk to have a date without them realizing that she did it. She is studying design.

    Ji Soo tried to dump Hyuk, not in a very nice way, when she realized that his first love was Ji An. She also told Ji An that they should be strangers and never to call her again. Somehow the birthday cake she made found its way to Ji An anyway, and Ji An realized that Ji Soo had made it. Later, Hyuk cleared up the misunderstanding and now they’ve just started officially dating. Obviously, Ms. No knows nothing about this, and Hyuk has no idea that Ji Soo is connected with Do Kyung’s family. Also Do Kyung has no idea about Ji Soo and Hyuk.

    Ji Ho lost his shoe sales job due to some jerky rich lady, so he dumped all his anger on rich Cinderella. Now he is about to buy his own franchise. He got drunk over his father’s illness and rejection of his family, and Cinderella picked him up off the floor and took him back to his room.

    Grandpa No is staying busy pulling strings to foil all Do Kyung’s attempts to start his own business, rat that he is.

    Papa Choi is getting therapy because he realizes he has absolutely no meaning in his life – he can’t even protect his children from Grandpa.

    Ms. No aka Evil Mom realized that Do Kyung’s love had to be Ji An so she met her and threatened her, but Ji An stood up for herself. Ji An said she had no interest to be part of Haesung Group and Evil Mom should settle the issue with her son.

    Do Kyung has been working mimumum wage jobs to pay the rent at the share house, and bought Ji An a pretty necklace for her birthday – that’s when she confessed to him, but although she has been more friendly to him, she still is telling him that they have no future. Do Kyung asked at the end of the last episode if she would reconsider, and she said no again, so he said they’re over. But he still isn’t going home, because he doesn’t want to be a pawn on Grandpa’s chessboard for the rest of his life.

    Sorry, I dropped this show in the way early stages so don’t know what’s going on. I have seen some beanies post about it but most of them were in the What We’re Watching post. You might want to try there…but not sure if you have time to search through those comments.

    Ji Soo still isn’t getting along well with Haesung family, but she and Cinderella have started to share secrets and she helped Do Kyung by bringing him a suitcase. The Haesung adults are too busy to try to control her at the moment, but they’re intending to send her away to Paris to keep from being an embarassment.

    Cinderella had a DNA test done because she felt so rejected by her family. Her mom told her they ignore her because she is the least of their problems, since she was brought up to be perfect. She has been sneaking out to have a real life hanging out with Ji Ho.

    Mr. Baker and Hee got married and are being cute together as newlyweds.

    That’s more or less where we are as of this week. Do Kyung has been trying to open a bio plastic company, whatever that might be, but without telling people that he worked for Haesung or using his own money, which means he has no background and nothing to impress investors except talk.

    Oh, and the ahjussi that Ji An works for at the woodworking place turned out to be Hyuk’s father.

      Oooh thanks a lot!! You are a saviour!! you even posted such a detailed summary.. <3 <3

      I guess there is plenty of angst and makjang left.. I thought there were only like 8 episodes left so more stories would be wrapped up.. but well considering the speed with this show moves from one Ji-an crisis to another, 8 episodes has a lot to pack in I'm sure!

      Atleast Baker got his happy storyline already !! ๐Ÿ™‚
      I'm soo keen on the maknae storyline.. its a shame the way they treat Cinders but now that she is a little bit saner her naivety is adorable.

      Papa Seo is weird.. no doubt life screwed him over.. but victim mentality much?! and JT & his wife storyline .. sigh

      and how did Ji-Soo's character come about? like what was the writer thinking making such an unlikable character? I sure got her initial betrayal & angst but she is sooo extreme in her immaturity.. ugh

      Aaahh1 I totally wanna join u guys in the comments on video… but i'l be sucked in & end up watching the episodes! Look at this long comment itself.. Lol *zero resistance I have*

      Thaaanks again! <3

        I know. I’m really kind of mystified by Papa Seo’s extreme behavior. Since when are elderly fathers so petty? Dying their hair and dumping their families to sit alone playing classical guitar…. I did get sucked into this show and I’m sticking with it, but sometimes I wonder why I’m wasting time on it. I do like Ji Ho and Cinderella more than any other couple except Mr. Baker and Hee. But I can’t see that they have any future while Ms. No and Grandpa are still running the show.
