Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

Guys, seriously, what on Earth do people do all day? I had two job interviews this week. Both 2.5 hours away from where I live. On the way to both interviews (held at two different times of day) I got STUCK in bumper to bumper traffic. It wasn’t morning or evening rush hour. Its not a super busy city (I guess) or what I would think of as a busy time of day. Where in the world are people going at 1 o’clock in the afternoon? And would you kindly get out of my way? Zetus Lapetus.

Last night I was listening to my spotify kpop daily mix before bed as I was reading. Please explain to me why every 3rd song was Seungri? Normally I can remove a song or artist and they absolutely would not let me with him. I was so mad I went to a smooth mix of r and b instead.

I just read that Jackson Wang is cancelling the release of Faded. Admittedly I didnt like it the first dozen times I listened to it and called it terrible and asked where his team was and how come no one was stopping him. But. Now I feel all bad for him πŸ™ the two school of thoughts about it seem to be that it was cancelled because 1) it was terrible or 2) because the teaser video was too sexual considering the current scandal ridden state of kpop.
Either way, I feel badly for him. He seemed to be pumped about the song and was promoting it super hard.
And I did come around. I liked it eventually. Not my favorite of his solo stuff. But, I DID come around. And I feel really badly for him it got to him that his fans hated the song so much that he cancelled it.

Beanies! Quick, some advice!
So, last week I applied for this job. The manager called me on Thursday to interview, but I live in a cell phone dead zone and didnt get the message until Friday. I called Friday and left a voicemail and (after much internet stalking) found his email online and sent an email on Sunday reiterating my interest in the position, so sorry to have missed your call etc professionalism! This morning I had an email from him asking me to interview tomorrow. Which, is short notice considering I have a full time job already. But, whatever. I emailed back saying that while I would love to interview for the position (and emphasized again that Im interested in the position) tomorrow is my programming day and that the exact time that he wants me to interview Im hosting a Dr. Seuss book club. And I completely forgot to mention that I work and have programs every day this week except my day off. So, he asked me to come in on Wednesday. I have two programs on Wednesday. I think that the one I could leave early for and drive to the interview (2.5 hours away) and skip the other. But, thats not super professional and I would be leaving the one program in the lurch. How do I say this in my email to the potential employer? I would love to come in and interview but I do have to prior obligations. I think it would make me look SO BAD to ask to reschedule TWICE. But I also think it would make me look SO BAD to skip out on these programs. WHAT DO I DO? The second I hit send I realized that I had forgotten to mention my programming schedule so that I could avoid this very scenario.

    Can you take a personal day at your current job? Or take a personal half day? (Is it worth it to take it unpaid? I have had to do that in the past; take a half-unpaid-day to take care of personal stuff.) Is there a way to tell your current job that something urgent and unpredictable came up and you can only do one program, or something like that? It’s not ideal, for sure, but it seems like it might be better to put that on your current employer than on the potential one. Your current job knows you, can give you the benefit of the doubt, etc. (Just my thoughts. I am no expert and not in HR or anything)

I woke up in *such* a good mood with actual good news to go with the good mood. So, this song (which I didn’t even like when it first came out) has been in my head since I woke up and I thought I would share.
Beanies–we have every right to a beautiful life. I mean, if Selena Gomez said it it must be true.
Also, I look massively adorable today. Which helps. I’m ready for my hot driver.

    Amen. In Selena Gomez We Trust. Thanks for the video as it reminded me how much I loved this song when it came out. (And how much I loved her film, Monte Carlo. 😅) Hope the rest of your week is as swell as your Monday.

Beanies, how do y\’all find new dramas to watch? Im scrolling aimlessly through one of the shifty sites looking for something that sounds fun and finding bubkiss. Bupkiss? I dont know. Nothing good.

    It depends on what you’re in the mood for, I think. You can ask for recs based on that – what are you after?

    …a decent, well-written noona romance to take away the bad taste of RIABB probably…

    Sometimes I tend to focus on one actor/actress I love and go down the rabbit hole that is their filmographies. πŸ˜€

    I just started Radiant/The Light in Your Eyes yesterday and am really enjoying it. It’s silly, sweet, and sad all at once. The lead actress (not the young one) is excellent.

    1. What We’re Watching is a great source, I write down all beanies’s recommendations, check them on mydramalist, IMDB and rotten tomatoes. If they have good enough rating I put them on my watch list.
    2. Once upon a time, there was a website called Dramatic Eye, the blogger list Top 500 Korean drama off all time. I don’t always agree with her/his recommendation, but I still get good rec from that site. one of them is my favorite Gloria, I don’t remember JB and GF ever mentioned this drama.
    3. Quora, I used it mostly to get rec for Chinese drama.

        Last time I checked this year it’s already closed down. I was reluctant to follow his recommendations because his taste in drama is totally different from DB which mostly I follow. None of popular drama like Tree with Deep Roots or Queen Seondeok made the list. Padam Padam and Que Sera Sera made it, but Hong sister’s and Kim Eun Seok’s drama didn’t. I never heard half of the drama on his list, his taste was peculiar.But I rememberDalja Spring made it into the list Isa

    I try random dramas. If I like it, I’ll stay. If not, I drop it.

    And I also watch dramas which have my faves. Last year, due to LoM I tried watching all JKH dramas. This year I’m on a SSR drama watch hahaha 🀣

Finished RiaBB.
In the end–I loved the love affair with books and publishing. I loved how much everyone loved their job and how much everyone supported each other (even Song-i). Thats the sort of atmosphere that I would personally love to work in one day.
I thought the best part of the finale was Author Kang\’s message about being a book and looking for other books. I didn\’t think the \”mystery\” surrounding him and his manuscript and his relationship with Seo-Joon was strong enough to end the drama on (did they ever say how Seo-Joon got a hold of Author Kangs The Heros partial manuscript in order to finish it, or did he make the whole book up but mimicked his father\’s style so closely?).
In the end there were somethings about the drama that bothered me (Dan-i ultimately being nothing more than a Mary Sue character, the complete lack of the daughter (there was a throw away line about where she was going to live after she graduates. I guess Dan-i isnt planning on seeing that kid until then? Isn\’t she like 12? Stand up parenting right there, I guess) is Hoon still homeless? Does Ji-Yul ever reconcile with her mother? Am I supposed to buy that Dir Ko and Jae-Min are in an actual relationship? Is Seo Young-A really dating that author that she slept with? And when did that start?) The world itself was so warm and welcoming that I have no problem believing that long after the drama is over these crazy kids are going to move on and keep making books and living their lives and I guess all of my questions will be answered on the other side—the part that we dont get to see.
In the end, I guess I liked it?
I\’ve got to say, though, we\’ve had two noona romances this year and while I technically liked them both I was still kind of \”meh\” on them both (WHICH IS RIDICULOUS! PBG and LJS COME ON DRAMALAND). Am I outgrowing noona romances or are they getting worse?

6

    They’re getting worse. Much worse.
    I have one explanation that may or may not be true – somebody realised they were bankable and so they’re not being done organically. That is, networks are making big-budget noona romances just to make noona romances. And so instead of being interesting examinations of social norms they’ve become banal, as all big network stuff does.

    3
    1

      Tell them to go away! Shoo! Shoo!
      I was so looking forward to PBG’s Encounter. He was made for noona romances. And I liked it. Well enough. Do you know—its a shoulder shrug drama.
      Like, “Hey did you like…xyz”
      response, (shoulder shrug). “I guess”.
      Both of these actors are capable of so much more than shoulder shrug dramas.

        Half of Encounter was good. And then it went to sheer banality.
        You know how I feel about RIABB since I dropped it halfway through.

            I can’t see the scene was worth the entire watch (I wish I’d dropped it around episode 11 or so) but it was certainly worth watching the first half. God that scene is adorable.

    With the daughter that is something that bothered me with My Ahjussi too. Yes, he was mentioned more but we only saw him once and I dont remember if they ever mentioned how often he gets to come home. It just seemed like a very distant relationship for a character like Dong hoon. Though it is still one of my favorites it just seemed a bit off.

    0
    1

      It never bothered me in My Ahjussi because I felt like Dong hoon’s unfulfilled paternal feelings – a father without a son – was one of the drivers behind his paternal care of Jian. That she was a person that helped filled the hole of his son’s absence. Unlike Danyi who didn’t seem to notice or care that she never saw her daughter, Dong-hoon’s deep loneliness and the paternal feelings he had no outlet for were part of what defined his character and a big factor in why he felt the urge to nurture and care for Jian like a father.

Guys do you remember how I posted that time I was going to a new friends house I hope she doesn\’t try to kidnap me. And then 5 months later she tried to kidnap me? Well here we go again! Going to a new friends house I hope she doesn\’t try to kidnap me. This time she\’s married with kids. The last one is a tiny chunk. I\’m betting I can escape if necessary.

I have been one of the ones saying that Dan-yi isnt a Mary Sue and that I relate to her and blah blah blah. And to that I say: screw that noise.
a 200% raise and her dream job? After walking out on her crappy job because of \”principles\”? Its easy to walk out on principles when you live with your rich af boyfriend who will happily support you while you look for something new.
I\’ve been living that candy life. Where, exactly (like I need coordinates and such) is my rich af boyfriend who will support me so that I can quit my crappy job based on principles. Only to walk into a dream job with a 200% raise.
And, where tf is her daughter? Is she going to make an appearance at the wedding? When Dan-yi and Eun-ho discover that they are pregnant?
Like. Boo to you drama.
I know, I know. logic
but its not that. its straight jealousy and bitterness. table of me.

    That scene bothered me to. I knew (we all did) that she would win the competition. But her walking out when her co-worker needs the job. Also, I kind of didnt like the literary snobbery when they were talking of the light short novels.

    But I did like that she negotiated for a bigger salary even knowing she was unemployed.

    Ji-Yul literally decided to actively start doing her job 3 days ago. After making a huge mistake. What on earth would make her think she deserves the opportunity to work on Mr. Kang’s book? I’m still irrirtated with her from last week. Girl needs to sit down somewhere.

      Lol. I’m going to miss this show and these characters. I do wish some of the development had been more consistent with some of the characters. Not sure we needed the mystery, but did want more of the daughter.

      But still I looked forward to it every weekend. And the two leads had such a good rapport.

        This is one of the few dramas that I have actively wanted to live inside. Like, if I could, I would hightail it over to SK and be the librarian at the publishing company. I mean, they have a library–they must need a librarian. I would do that job. And befriend them all. But as much as I have loved and been Team Ji-Yul all series long—last week she got on my nerves with the apartment thing. And her pouting about wanting the hero’s novel this week makes me want to kick her in the shin. Grow up, child.

I have had to say MULTIPLE times today at the library: No. Not all kpop acts are the same. No. They are not all run by the same company. In regards to the current scandal and TEL. It used to annoy me that the only thing anyone seemed to know about kpop was BTS. Its been a few days and now the only thing anyone seems to know about kpop is the scandal. SAD.

    To be fair, I didn’t know about K-Pop until I started watching dramas. Actually, I didn’t really know about K-Pop until I started reading beanie posts about it and getting into it myself, so I kind of understand the ignorance. It’s like knowing who PSY was back in the day and nobody else. It’s not part of the Western mainstream. Only a couple of my friends knew about K-Pop before I started chewing their ears off about it, but they knew PSY and very few knew BTS because they were viral hits.

    BUT, I get your frustration. K-Pop is not BTS. There is more to K-Pop than this scandal. Unfortunately K-Pop is a business. Bad things happen in business.

I started watching Kdramas about 4 years ago. One looooong night as I was working the third shift at the library, had finished my homework and didn\’t bring a book to read I looked up and Delightful Gal A was watching a drama. She offered to pull one up for me and our supervisor. It was Coffee Prince. I watched half of it that night, binged the rest over the weekend. That Sunday DGA gave me Boys Over Flowers For the next few weeks I just consumed whatever I could get my hands on with a very limited key word search. I didn\’t know any of the actors names, we watched the dramas on Youtube and they weren\’t recommending new things to me. I think at the the time the only keywords that I actually knew were flower boy and kdrama.
Somehow or another that lead me to A Gentleman\’s Dignity. That drama was a game changer for me. That drama showed me that Kdramas weren\’t just for kids and they weren\’t made up of only youth and school romances. I\’ve watched it at a time or two since (I\’m a serial rewatcher if you havent noticed). I still love it. I love the ultimate man-child playboy being challenged into growing up for the woman he falls in love with. I love the friendship of the four men. I love (almost) all of the women (well—-I can say all of them since one love interest is a CHILD and acts that way throughout the entire drama and is the one fast forward plot line for me. Goodness she\’s irksome). I love the friendships between the women. I love that the drama ends with the four men and their four significant others going to get a professional picture taken together—something that the men have done on their own every decade. I love that they are adults that I recognize. They are trying more or less their hardest but adulting is hard–do people get that? Adulting is hard–and they don\’t have all the answers no matter how smooth they try to be.
And Lee Jong-hyun is in it. And he plays a pretty significant role as the unknown son of one of the leads who ultimately helps his father get the girl while finding his own group of solid best friends. Its not a huge role. But like I said, pretty significant.
It was more or less easy to cancel CNBlue in spite of them being one my favorite groups because I still have JYH and Min Hyuk in other things. Which is sad but true. But, to cancel one of my favorite dramas. One of the dramas that showed me that my love of kdramas wasn\’t going to be a few months trend but has turned into one of my defining characteristics these last few years…thats a bit harder.
Which leads me back to the questions I\’ve been asking with MJ and that I\’ve been asking with R. Kelly and didn\’t really have to challenge myself to ask with Kpop: do you separate the artist from the man? Do you cancel them completely? Do you say well this is my favorite drama and he\’s not even a lead character so its ok? Do you wait and see if he\’s forced out of his band and if he isn\’t or if he isn\’t charged with anything

    Does that mean I can quietly add CNblue back to the rotation and I can rewatch A Gentleman’s Dignity in peace without feeling the weight of the guilt of all of those victims?.
    Thanks, so much, idols for ruining so very much. Criminals.

      I wasn’t a big fan of Big Bang but I really liked Seungri in the variety shows that he was in. He just had so much personality and made me laugh so much. Up until the time the Burning Sun issue blew up, I was still watching snippets of his variety show appearances. His involvement in the scandal ruined those for me. Now seeing his face makes me so mad. I used to describe him as charming and hilarious but he’s now just a liar and criminal to me, together with his “friends”. I’m mad as well to those that condoned (and continue to tolerate and excuse) his behavior.

      I had the same feeling when The Princess’ Man was ruined by trash. I still consider it one of my favorites, but will likely not watch it again (nor will I recommend it now.)

    Same with me. Gentleman’s Dignity is one that I rewatch once or twice a year, but probably not anymore. I try to separate artist from art — after all, I’ve done my share of crappy things, but I can’t seem to. I can’t listen to Wagner or watch Edward Scissorhands and I’m hoping I can still listen to Highlight but that hasn’t happened yet. I know ignorance isn’t better, but it certainly would feel better.

    I totally cancel a person if they are linked with murder, domestic violence or sexual crimes. Because these are crimes and there is a punishment by law for them. But more importantly, I think it is related to their profession. When you are a celebrity, you have an onscreen persona, which people idealize or believe to be true. So in one way or the other they influence people. In that case, they are not an ideal example/influencers for people. Also actors have the leeway to romance on screen with the same gender they talk crap about behind the scenes. Most of all, I just think it would be awful for the victims to see them and we appreciating them/their work when technically they are not being punished.

      I have found it hard to get an answer to differentiating man from actor too but in cases I did end up watching a show, I found myself ffd the said person’s scenes. Somewhere I did keep thinking that it would be hurtful to the victims.

    For me it take time, I can listen to likes of David Bowie or Led Zeppelin now, but new crop of creeps unearthed still make me uncomfortable and their art lead my brain to their crimes and I can’t enjoyed it as I used too, I don’t think I’ll be able to listen to MJ for a long, long time.

    I can’t answer that for sure, but I can say that this really shows how the actions of the one person affect so many negatively. None of the actors in that show had anything to do with his actions, and yet people would consider discarding the entire show (where he plays a small part) because of his involvement in the scandal. Like I said, I don’t know the answer to that, I can only raise another question: Do the innocent people around the guilty deserve to suffer for the guilty’s offences? I guess each person has to do what they are comfortable with. I also re-watch A Gentleman’s Dignity from time to time and will continue to do so.

      Thank you for this response, honestly. I hadn’t even considered that aspect of the problem. I was only thinking: ugh. Gross. I don’t want to see his face. And that I was irritated that I may not be able to watch a favorite drama because of my distaste that I hadnt thought to consider the innocent parties effected.
      Thank you for pointing it out. More thoughts to think.

\”Don\’t touch my woman\” was a great moment and all but I kind of wish that she werent defined as \”property\” in that particular moment, you know? Here this creeper has broken into her house because he\’s A) insane and B) a creeper and C) a criminal and D) entitled and I\’ll stop there because I will double my way on through the alphabet but here he is screaming that YS is his and Mr. Lawyer is fighting him off but he\’s also saying that YS belongs to him. And I\’m like….actually, she may be your girlfriend/soulmate/love of your life but she still belongs to herself.
Also, its kind of….squirmy?….watching this with the powerful man drugging the woman in light of recent events.
Oh, and also number 2. Its kind of late in the game for this drama to be introducing a plot. Like…we\’re almost through the cake and suddenly your like…DINNER TIME. I\’m full on fluff. I don\’t need steak. Thats just an example. I always need steak.

    On point, as always, @isthatacorner. I raised my eyebrow at that line too and wonder if there’s an issue of cultural translation. Both The Crowned Clown and Fluttering Alert used the phrases “she’s your person” and “she’s my person” to great effect. It wasn’t stated as ownership but acknowledgement of a relationship.

    And in general, I have an issue with the way leadership is handled in Gyeroo. Is humiliating people a motivational tool? Its like every time an employee makes a mistake the management/director/department head thinks its a great idea to stand up in the middle of their open-concept office and berate them in front of all and sundry. Thats crap. That…thats a hostile working environment and would seemingly encourage people to be terrified of making mistakes (which ultimately leads to more mistakes–I don’t know if thats true but I feel like I’ve read it somewhere). Its much more humane–its much more human–to pull a person aside when they make a mistake instead of setting them up on the coffee table and pointing to them so everyone can feel uncomfortable.

      Yes exactly , it doesn’t solve the problem at all and it wastes time.
      I especially don’t like how hae-rin and the managers start throwing things around when there is an issue. Or the flicking of the forehead, it’s supposed to be cute. I think it’s awful!
      It’s a company not a playground.
      Surely they can resolve the issue in a calmer, private manner. It shouldn’t have come to Dani or the colleage being interrogated in the middle of the office.

          Oh I couldn’t work in an environment like that. The very first time it happened to me I would put in my two weeks notice and ask to take my vacation time for the next two weeks.

    Exactly, even if dani had stuck it out for the rest of the day, if any other issue was to crop up, they would have blamed it on her.
    All the editors knew Dani wasnt to blame and I’m angry they didn’t set the other girl straight. Her eyes were bulging out trying to get Dani to go along with her lies.

      I didn’t like how Hae-Rin was all “…I guess she couldn’t take it.” Why SHOULD she take it? And I still dont understand why the boss’s decided to tell the ENTIRE company that Dani-i’s contract wasn’t going to be renewed or that they were planning on firing her if Eun-ho would go along with it. Thats what Dan-i couldn’t take. The fact that EVERYONE obviously knew something and was pussyfooting around her.

        I just didn’t get why everyone was looking at Dani as an alien? I’d understand that reaction if it came out Dani and eunho were dating and she was still employed.
        The only people who should know were the founding members, that’s it.
        The rest of them didn’t need to know, it’s none of their business.

        Hae-rin knew eunho would have gone nuts if she told the truth, how they practically bullied/isolated her into leaving.

          The underlying problem is that they treat people based on their experience/age/position. If you respected everyone as people and treated them all with the same respect, then none of this would have bothered you. None of this new information would have made you uncomfortable. It shows how the society views and treats people based on their qualifications etc. [This is how we end up giving ‘power’ to certain section of people. – thats a different topic altogether]
          The fact that SonYi thought it was ok to blame someone else due to their status of a contractor shows how ingrained that thought is.

It feels like I need to have one last night of enjoying my kpop groups. By tomorrow they\’ll all be in jail for being creepy, pervy, criminal assholes. I enjoyed you last night CNBlue. No more.

      I just deleted CNblue out of my spotify library and am currently debating whether or not Jung Yong Hwa needs to go as well. I’m going to spend sometime enjoying JYH today just in case it turns out he’s a criminal as well and needs to be deleted. I have to clear out youtube next!
      No criminals left behind!

          The college controversy? I read about that when it was happening. I thought it was dumb then. I think its dumb now. It could be that I’m not understanding it correctly but, yeah. Dumb. And I think there was something older that he blamed on his mom? I dont really remember, it was before I became a fan.

            Yes, it was when Yoo Jae Suk sign to his company, he and Jonghyun were given heads up and tried capitalize on that by buying and selling their stocks, Jonghyun was caught and fined but Jonghwa weaselled out, because everything was in his mother’s name.

I\’m glad that I was spoiled about this ep. Dan-i asking them to reconsider just about broke me. Honestly, yes. She lied about her background. But what good was her having a degree and awards doing? You can\’t even pawn those for food. I guess she could set them on fire to keep her fingers warm. At times all a degree feels like is another bill to pay. Without any of the rewards that you\’re told a degree is supposed to afford you (a decent paying job, better life, BS).
I\’ve said it once and I\’ll say it again. Who. CARES. If you\’re uncomfortable having an overqualified person doing menial tasks. She knew that she was overqualified. Something in her life brought her to the point that made her realize/think that applying for something that was so far \”beneath\” her was the best option. If accepting your job was literally her BEST and ONLY option—can you think, for just one minute–what taking that job away from her is going to reduce her to? No, this isn\’t a school club. Its a company. But YOU are the founders. YOU can make an exception. She works hard af and she is an excellent employee. Not once has she given you a cause for complaint. Y\’all even looked a bit choked up at firing her. If its THAT HARD to let her go? OBVIOUSLY you are making a poor decision!
