Yellow Beanies !! Just in to say hello !
Not watching much drama these days except
Her Private Life (Obviouslyy… “Kim Jae Wook’s cheekbones are my salvation” ! )
& Secret Life of my Secretary.. cuz how can I not watch Kim Young Kwang even if the story isnt working for me yet?!?

also miss the fangirling over him & the guardians in Lookout with @sicarius – ending my lurking days on DB ! Hehe

Beaaniees !! I’m finally done with my PhD- defence and all.. Officially Dr, Rainbow Unicorn ! πŸ˜‰

Let’s start this by explaining how Rainbow Unicorns work scientifically ! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

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.

      Hahaha! You aren’t leaving much of a choice then.. guess it is Bogummie as expected then!

        I confess I am heavily biased towards the former. 😂 But I am really enjoying Boyfriend! The languid feel, the atmosphere, and PBG’s precious character.. SHK’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.

        2
        1

          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. He’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!

    Don’t look at me, I gave up my kdrama hiatus for the both of them. Sorry, not sorry.

      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 was a complete sucker for LoveO2O despite its many shortcomings!

        I’m not really watching for either of themβ€”it’s the game I’m watching. The last 3 minutes of the second episode! Daebak!

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 ! πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ˜€

The things you do for a crazy dongsaeng.. logging in just to be a bot ! Which btw I hit @sicarius ur previous comments within 5 pages.. talking less these days are we?!

Hi there lovely beanies! Sending you my louve ! I provably will be back properly on DB for more than bot behaviour soon.. I’m just enjoying psst thesis submission break which doesn’t require active procrastination πŸ˜€ and enjoying real life things like the AMAZING time I had with @obsessesmuch at the WINNER concert & going around SG (never ever did I think that would actually happen!) !

See ya’ll soon.. Muah

      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!

      I see you have been keeping up the good work started by Muchie ?! Hades w/ a new username?!! I’m soo tempted to go spam with with W’s awesome variety too but don’t wanna scare him + not sure how long i’m gonne be lurking on DB for !

      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! )

        Lol. RR dance by my little ones? Don’t think it’s going to happen. Mommy is too busy watching her dramas or on Twitter fangirling.

        I didn’t really need to drop that much Winner candy for Hades. The boys won his 💙 with their music. Though, I only suggest Winner music during our rabbit music session.

        I have your spreadsheet bookmarked on my twitter. It’s been helpful! I need to do a WoF re-watch!

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 didn’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-/

        IT WAS INSPIRED BY AN AIR DIFFUSER?!?!?!? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
        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.

          plane take off/landing playlist? now that’s an idea. i usually listen to my usual commute/driving playlist during take offs or landing.

          1

            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)

    Not really feeling Jinwoo’s mop hair, but he’s always reminded me of Jung Kyungho.
    Mino’s looking both soft and badass at the same time.
    Too bad we can’t see Seungyoon’s hair colour.
    Seunghoon serving them looks!

      Yesss!! I have always found similarities between JKH and Jinwoo.. and I kinda like the hairdo- more in the colour photos that were released yesterday than here but I still do like it.

      That’s Mino for you. 😛

      Yoon’s hair color might be one of the highlights of this album! So beautifully blue!!

      Hoony always does! And that cut in his eyebrow is really suiting him!

        Lol I thought HAGD and Raining are a given.. If they aren’t on there, then YG would be at the receiving end of some really choicest words! πŸ˜›

        But you never know what he thinks is a “surprise” or “gift” to ICs.. We might consider it an obvious thing and he ll behave like he is pulling a rabbit out of a magician’s hat!! πŸ˜›
        Though to be fair, I know ICs are gonna flood his insta account with thankful messages even if he considers HAGD and Raining as the surprise/gifts! ICs know how to flatter him! πŸ˜€

        Also, runi, I know what you mean! I want to hear the original Korean versions even though it might just be the same for me! It’s just that both these songs have climbed up my list and I want more people aka Korea to know how good they are!

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

    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

    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.
