Beanie level: Loan shark with a heart of gold

I feel like I will watch The King, mainly because of hype and it will be on Netflix. It seems like a trippy drama. Is he the emperor in both worlds? Only one world? Is KGE gonna be in both worlds? How many of the casts play 2 (or more) roles? I already have too many questions, the promos are not helping at all.

ps: I had to include The Last Empress in my snapshot, that’s where the real Emperor is. Hehehe 🤭

This reminds me of Hospital Playlist band! Uni friends forming a group 🎤🎶.

Beautiful voices. They are singing on the stage after 25 years. They were a group of 4, now only 3. One friend died due to chronic illness 😢.

I have comments for K-Grey\’s Anatomy Hospital Playlist (as of ep 4)…I am aware my opinion about this drama is vastly different than many. I still want to share how I feel about it. I do wonder is it just me who feels this way when watching?

1) please don\’t go around dating each other or I will forever label this drama K-Grey\’s Anatomy

2) they are 40yo\’s with successful careers and a great friendship going on, why the need to \’force\’ them into a relationship? Seriously none, none of the 5 main characters have sizzling chemistry or sparks going on. They are all in a platonic relationship. Not saying that one has to have sparks or sizzling chemistry for a relationship to work, but what on earth is wrong with being friends?

3) the editing is making me confused. I keep mixing up past and present. Initially I thought the ending of ep 4 was a flashback, until JKH said jajangmyun… then I connected the dots.

4) the 5 doctors are all priveleged. Aka these people are rich (all born with a silver or gold or platinum spoon in their mouth) and use connections. Which is frankly annoying. Sure they are smart. But nepotism is rampant, eg: hospital owner YYS use his money/power to rope in his friends.

5) at least 2 of the main 5 doctors have tragic backgrounds. Obgyn doctor with his cheat father. JJS with his cheater wife. I await the tragic background of the others. I foresee YYS will be bankrupt at one point.

6) the band? It\’s fun at first. But in ep 4, the full length intrumental play added nothing to the plot.

7) conclusion: I will continue to watch and I really hope there will be no shipping wars. Imo, this drama doesn\’t really have an aim, much like Grey\’s Anatomy…it just goes on and on and on (yet I still watch 🤭).

    I agree with your points. Actually if you look back, the shows from this team are all over the place. They are not very cohesive. I watch it for the bits of cute Jo Jungseok but a lot of it feels forced plus after 4 shows from them which were basically the same formula (and omg the shipping wars) it gets tiring.

    This one seems to be going on for seasons so we can throw plot out of the window now.

      I was sad that he got divorced. I thought he would be the one happily married with a cute son. Then his wife had to cheat on him. Sobs. Actually….I didn’t realize his wife was cheating on him at all, until I read the recap for ep 3 😅.

        Ugh same. I was quite happy he has a son coz that means he’s married and won’t have to be part of the husband hunt but of course, they got to add more drama to it. Someone was theorizing that U-joo isn’t his son and the man with his wife is the actual father. Lol

    Oh…i have to add…it annoyed me to watch the intern serving the doctors food and then he had to stand at the side and watch them eat. What on earth is that. Is that how hospitals function in Korea? Gahhh

    Another thing…my opinions are flexible. So it may change in the future with more episodes.

    4. All of them are rich? I know Jeong Won and Seok Hyeong are because they were classmates since young and they probably met in a “rich-only” school. Idk about the others. Although I do agree about the nepotism portion. It’s sad but it really is rampant in reality. Connections sometimes more important than skills. Frustrating.

    6. True. But it still looked cute. And YYS playing the drums there looked appetizing. Ooops.

    While I do agree with most of your points, I still find the show entertaining. I think the reason that some of us, if not all, feel that the show is scattered is because the production team has already planned to do more the one season. I think I have the feeling about this one with Kingdom: you don’t really feel it’s finished at the end of the season 1.

    I made many predictions in ep.3 based on my experiences watching Kdramas. Ep.4 proved that I shouldn’t expect/ try to guess too many things because the production team seems to like playing with viewers’ expectations.

    In a way, I still find the show fascinating. I love mundane things in life and this one seems to excel at it. I’m not sure if I’m gonna like it at the end, but for me it’s still so far so good.

    P.S. I also think that some scenes feel forced. Personally, I found YYS a little bit unnatural in certain scenes. I’m not sure if any Beanie shares this feeling with me though.

I say the doctors in Hospital Playlist will be single until the end except for JKH who will have a relationship with JJS’s younger sister….just like his character in Prison Playbook. Pfft

It took me several hours on 4th Jan 2019 to realize that I was in a SSR pit.

Approx. 1 year and 4 months later….I haven’t found my way out 😅.

Throwback to 1st April 2019: Shin Sung Rok was cast in Perfume aka his first drama lead role!!! 🥳💜

I’m so excited for this drama. Very excited for reasons. Hehehehe 🤭

My last LMH drama was Heirs. Heirs was atrocious. Both plot and acting. This drama has the Heirs writer and the same actor. I am curious how the storyline is. The initial description are confusing and the continuous casting make it look like the writer is not fully prepared.

In between my 1000th to 8000th posts, DB has a whooping 350,000 posts!!! So many posts by beans and I contribute about 7000 out of that. Gosh 🙃

Each time I reach a thousand posts on DB I will make a post to celebrate the new milestone. It took me approx. 1 year to jump from 1000 posts to 7000 posts 😱.

Early 2019 I had more posts because of MoA recaps. Then I got hooked with Lee Hyuk, started gif-ing and went spiraling into a rabbit hole of old SSR dramas. From 1st April to end of July, Perfume happened which was all sorts of awesome (watch it everyone). In Sept 2019, Vagabond came around (after a year of waiting, multiple changes) and we partied in the recap section, I made spin offs and it was fun. I forgot when I watched Heirs, but there’s a gif-recap on my wall. All in all….I commented/posted a lot of stuff 😅.

The full list of my 1000th milestone posts is in the comment section. It’s easy to track because I start the posts with nearly the same sentence and I include the post number lol. From observation….I guess it is safe to assume I won’t be moving on from Royal Hotness anytime soon. Maybe I am a SSR bot 🤖.
