Beanie level: Errand boy

I am here to share my embarrassing gym experience.

Today, I walked into a 55min cardio-strength class at the gym. Within 2mins of the workout, I was reminded exactly WHY I don’t do group gym classes (except yoga): it was a STEP ROUTINE class and I have ZERO coordination. I mean zilch, nada, niet. I suck at fast foot work routines so much, I don’t even do zumba. LoL.

I spent the 1st 5mins trying to keep up with the fast instructions and the foot rhythm on – off – around – next to this godforsaken step. By minute # 6, I pasted a fake smile on my face, trying my best to fight the urge to run out of class in frustration. By minute # 7, I was literally doing my own thing. This lasted an excruciating 40mins, when we thankfully moved on to upper body work with weights.

I have never felt so ridiculous in my liiiiiife and unfortunately, the whole class saw me… *sigh*

I washed this embarrassing moment down with a light 15min jog and a 40-min slow yoga session (with a client).

All this to say: I should have stuck to today’s recommended 6-wk HIIT home video workout 😅😅😅😅

Namaste 🙏🏾

    At least you powered through! 👊Once I fell down during a step class (couldn’t coordinate head, torso and feet). Such shame, such cringe! 😬

TGIF, dear Beanies!

What’s in store for this weekend?
Now that I have given my final thoughts on the brilliant horror flick that was The Guest and also had my heart wrenched at the impending doom in the beautiful melo 100 Millions Stars from the Sky, I feel a little drained.

I do have a few hours of dramas to catch up on Fox Bride Star and The Beauty Inside . Any recommendations on other shows?

[The following have been dropped, because there are too many good KDramas out there to be wasting time on mediocre ones that don’t engage me after either 3+ eps or even hitting the ½-way mark:
Ghost Detective
Terrius Behind Me
100 Days My Prince]

    Feel Good to Die!! The premiere this week was real good!

    100MSFTS has all my attention now. I watched episode 13&14 of Terius while thinking about 100MSFTS. I guess I won’t be able to watch anything else until it ends.

    Besides 100MSFTS My Ahjussi and Life on Mars were the only dramas that I liked from the start to the end. I don’t know how many shows I dropped and there were around 5 shows I finished but with like 40% of the initial interest.

daebak!
Jin Gook, really?!?!?!

(Ep11 of 100MSFTS)

    He is crazy! The real sociopath here

      I really didn’t see it coming. As a matter of fact, when Moo Young 1st slumped and clutched his side, I felt confused. and then it hit me. OMG, Jin Kook (or is it Jin Gook??? the spelling evades me…), WHY would you do this???

      then again, as some other Beanies are saying, he’s been slowly but surely unraveling in his madness as Jin Kang and Moo Young grew closer every day. The fight with his sister, and the possibility of her knowing she’s not his real sister + seeing them happily together on their housewarming date… yup, he blew a MAJOR fuse!

        Just repeating what a fellow beanie commented on my fanwall ‘FOOK YOU JIN GOOK FOOK YOU’!

        PS: I think it’s Jin Gook (JG). Easier to shorten and differentiate with Jin Kang (JK)

Does anyone watch the video clips on DB? It’s a section I hardly ever venture into, and I was curious as to what others read here, besides the recaps and the fanwall.

I scrolled through the Beanie FanWall all the way to October 31st, when I last checked in.

I finally caught up to ep10 of 100MSFTS and oh, the heartbreak is a-coming 😭💔💔💔.
Ah, and what a beautiful bed scene. The awkwardness had me all giddy.
How will I survive the heartbreak?!? 💔💔

    The look and the silence 😂. I got that when I’m crying over Doojoon enlistmen and suddenly feeling slumps to open DB. He just look at me with those eyes. But, atleast he listen to my problem 😢

    Welcome to the world of the Errand Boys. I hear some get promoted and move to glitzy Rooftop apartments, but I’m not sure how they do it. Maybe I ‘m just a slacker errand boy.

      aaaawww, thanks, @justme !
      I am watching other live shows and reading their recaps but I find that it’s the shows with complicated characters like Hundred Million Stars from the Sky that usually get me stuck on a keyboard, debating all day! ha ha ha
      and yes, being Being on the same level of Ji Chang Wook is a true honour indeed 😉!
      O, that I could meet him in person!!

Beanies!
I caved and watched LIFE on Netflix and it was good!!! Not as good as Forest of Secrets (as several Beanies had said) but it was good !!

My overall feelings:

I loooved Gu Seung-Hyo ! What a complicated man! I really liked him as the not-Bad-All-The-Time Bad Guy, and actor Cho Seung-Woo was brilliant in bringing out the nuance of such an easy-to-hate character. I’m glad he didn’t get a special redemption arc, because, let’s face it, he is the way he is and has no shame in being ruthless, but the way he mellows a little with Dr. Lee No-Eul was just adorable. And can we talk about the wonderful boss-subordinate relationship he had with Team Leader Kang? So respectful and trusting! I loved that (ruthless) duo!

Dr. Oh Se-Hwa was suuuch a badass woman! I was clapping for her all the way! You go, lady! Dr. Lee No-Eul was good too. A little naïve in thinking that she can “fix” or “change” a man, but she wasn’t stupid and she had a good head on her shoulders.

The brotherhood was a complicated one. While I loved the bromance, I also didn’t understand Jin Woo’s tendency to over-protect. It felt like Sun-Woo would suffocate under all that attention.

Jin-Woo was ok. The show spent a lot of time saying, “yes, he’s a whisteblower for his own sake, but it worked out for others too”, but I didn’t really align with all his constant nosiness and the manipulation, even if it was for the greater good. As Dr. Oh asked him in the later episodes, “Isn’t the emergency department busy??!?” coz he sure spent a LOT of time in the hallways.

Any way, over all, a good way to spend 16+ hours. Glad I watched it.

Thanks for the recommendation, Beanies !

I got fed up with social media and how much importance I was subconsciously giving it to my \”virtual\” self-worth, and I just deleted Instagram and Facebook from my phone.
Positive vibes only.

    Well, I don’t feel the same way! I was reading about Coffee Prince and it led me to some old threads such as Top Ten favorite dramas, Top ten gateaway dramas to hook your friends on, If you like contract marriages, ets.
    They were amazing. Now we just have to wait for december to take part in end-of-the-year polls.
    I wish we could have more like those as much as recaps.

      dear @marina , I understand, but did you go through the desert wasteland that this website was a few months ago? even recaps were rare!!
      I’ll take (and praise!) the “more” that’s being offered right now!

        You are right. Compared to some months ago, the current situation is heaven. During those months I signed out and quit coming here. The day I logged in I was so happy to be welcomed by many recaps and news.
        But I’m still waiting for the old Javabeans n Girlfriday to bring those golden days back.

Best Sunday ever!
I watched 2 Korean movies, both of which coincidentally had Park Seo Joon:
> the Beauty Inside
> Midnight Runner

I\’m really enjoyed both! ♥️

    That was a good Sunday! I was so happy PSJ got a lot of screen time in The Beauty Inside and Midnight Runners was such a great movie and totally my style. Action/adventure, comedy, mystery, PSJ!, and Kang Ha-neul! Now, I want to see it again!😂

      Me too! I was quite happy with his significant screen time on The Beauty Inside.
      And Kang Ha Neul and him make suuuuuch a hilarious duo!
