Beanie level: Errand boy

Beanies help! I don’t know why I keep thinking that I absolutely have to do some doorbuster Black Friday shopping for sandwiches this Thanksgiving.

    Y’know, that DB 25% banner keeps fooling me into thinking it’s a Subway banner. I get so hungry…

    Me too!! But with $30 flat rate shipping to where I’m held captive by my family, I can’t afford to buy anything. Especially not a BLT on Italian Herb.

      BLT on Italian herb, no, not even it’s a foot-long.

      Now I am dreaming of a Korean BBQ sandwich with kimchi relish, with a side of dukbokki and soju for the drink. Oversized this, please!

How can every passing minute be so delightful even at the antsiest moment? I don’t need to wait for ep16 to spontaneously combust. I am already ashes that has blown into heaven.

My favorite tiny little gesture during their embrace? Se-hee gently thumb-stroking Ji-ho’s hair while delivering his non-joke….striking the core of what true intimacy feels for me

    LOL, I thought I’d be weird for mentioning this, so thanks for doing it.
    And while we’re at it… after their kiss when he went to get a beer, I noticed that he caressed her face before leaving.
    And it was just- UGH!

      Hehe it is not weird to notice these things after 1000+ viewings😆 I actually saw the thumb the first time and it just really spoke to me….everything is just so good, yuyuu!! The conversation, the hug, EVERYTHING!!!!!! I am just gonna die in a corner here; don’t mind me.

        I’ve watched it a zillion times too and it gets me every time >.<

Se-hee kimjanging is just all kinds of weird awesome and LMK is all commitment. Echoing lovepark in the recap, give the sound guy a raise already!
Cannot blame the ahjummas for appreciating the view!

Now knowing that there is always a strong emotional undercurrent beneath that facade, you are just being coy and feigning ignorance, right?

Ahjumma abuse is no joke, yo. Oh how our hero suffers for his love!
The song provides the perfect subtext.

    This scene was somehow even funnier the second time I watched it. His expressions are pure gold.

      IKR? The rewatch feels like a higher (maybe even heightened) level of experience just because there is so much comedy to mine every passing second!

    I’m torn rewatch this week’s episodes? Or the whole damn thing? I’m leaning toward the latter some this show has temporarily (I hope temp) ruined me for other dramas.~Sigh~

      Totally get it! I cannot bring myself to watch anything else during the week.

      I also have never been so excited to rewatch an episode before! Damn you show!😆

        Agreed. I’m actually branching out for a minute. I put Anne with an E on Netflix last night. I will probably love Megan Follows as Anne (of green gables) best but it’s the first time I watched anything that wasn’t a Korean or Taiwanese drama in a long time.

Lee Min-ki in motion is one of my favorite states of Lee Min-ki -kimjang walking, (❤️ that little kick), angry strutting, mad dashing, and running toward the girl who loves you the way you deserved to be loved.

    The little kick when walking up the hill was so the most adorable thing

    And that bounce he did when he saw Ji ho had come because she was worried about him. I don’t know how Ji ho didn’t see he likes her too! 😀

The Graduate poster states “He’s a little worried about his future” which brings back the concept of time, i.e neocortex, yesterday vs today. The line may reflect se-hee’s perspective toward the state of their relationship. The placement of the poster is now inside her room instead of on the outside of her door might signify how Ji-ho views Se-hee is in her life. “30th Anniversary Presentation” also corresponds to Ji-ho’s age nicely. Well done Show!

    I remember back in episode 9 when she told Se-Hee that she came across a script that was incredibly fun, I’m wondering if it was The Graduate she was talking about. It would make sense why in episode 3, she was touched when Se-Hee brought back her script and poster.

If every time I get a nickel for correcting the autocorrected “Se-her” to “Se-hee”, I probably can buy myself a pair of Swarovski earrings now.

    My keyboard on my phone has automatically added his name onto my frequently used words. So when I type S E and add the dash, it pulls up. Hmm…I wonder how many times I’ve typed his name. 😂

Dear Overlord JB and GF, would you please consider carrying the snail plushie in the DB store? We Beanies have been real nice this year and I would love to put it on my Xmas list! (Just might splurge on the beautiful Swarovski star earrings….this show possibly is the best ever at its tasteful PPL integration)

    This show has the best PPL. Shopping King Louis level good. When Su-ji was working on her bra design and flipped her computer, I was just like “well played, PPL, well played”.

    14

      I wonder if Writer Yoon like Ji-ho actually worked as an assistant writer who is solely responsible for inserting PPLs onto scenes. They are just too good. She either makes the PPL meta-funny, seamless, or integral to the plot.

      10

        I wouldn’t be surprised if she did. It’s ridiculously good. I want to sit anyone who has ever wrote a Subway into a drama and make them watch this show to demonstrate how PPL should be done.

          Hehe, now for the first time ever I want to see a Subway PPL in BTLIOF just to see how the master will make it work (OMG, did I just say I want to see more Subway PPL?)

          1

            Hahaha
            Se-hee should meet his ex at a Subway and when she makes a fuss, be like “Were you expecting anything better? Because you don’t deserve it. Here’s your half of the $5 footlong and honestly even $2.50 is too much to spend on you. Now, it’s called fast food for a reason, so hurry it up. What do you want?”

          Oh man, I would totally want Ji-ho to footlong slap that Jung-min for the pain she had caused Se-hee.

          Bubye, gurl! Never wanna see ya!

      Well, they did the PPL meta on the first episode so I think that would have been embarrassing if they did in-yo-face PPL here. Hahaha

    Omgg, it’d be amazing if it was in the store.
    The first thing I thought when I saw it was “I want that!”
    I’d name it after Se-hee, hehe.

Se-hee now is able to do some stargazing out of his own volition. How do you like the Big Dipper now?
I give his humanoid evolution, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Seriously Writer-nim, you need to stop giving us more reasons to love Se-hee, otherwise this will no longer be a slice-of-life drama. It will just become my lucid fantasy.

The most important question that needs to be answered tonight is how they can find such long ahjumma pants to fit Se-hee in Namhae.

Happy (but not surprised) to see BTLIOF’s rating is 4.9, but am surprised (and very happy) to see GBS’s rating is 5.0!
These 2 shows are absolute ❤️

Still trying to decipher Bo-mi’s evil grin. Are Bo-mi and Won-seok’s matching wardrobes signaling the potentiality of their “uri”?

    I blame the stupid music… they’re probably trying to mislead us *again*…
    Or they’re end goals… *shrugs*

      Hehe, I think I will feel more excited about the possible Bo-mi/Bok-Nam pairing because she would be a kickass noona who would put that punk in his place. Most of all, I cannot wait for her secret life to be revealed!

        Hahaha she’d have to do some seriously putting in place for me to approve of that… I’m still not sold on the guy!
        But I love her!

        The parallels are there: both use the same smooth line ‘do you have this, do you have that, do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend?’

    I’m casually shipping them, just in case Won-seok and Ho-rang don’t resolve their issues.
    It’d be freaking hilarious if she was asking all those questions for legit work purposes.

      Not sure if she already was interested in Won-seok when she had that little verbal joust with Ho-rang in the car about her lack of manners? Writer-Nim does like to leave us little clues.

    I took that look to mean: You have a girlfriend who isn’t me for now. I typically don’t support relationships where a person goes after someone that they know is in a relationship HOWEVER a) I don’t like Ho Rang so, bleh and 2) I’ve shipped these two from the first time they shared a scene together. To which I say: GET IT BO MI.

Such a cathartic moment after watching so many Kdramas that Se-hee immediately changed the security code after another surprise visit from Eomeoni (do we need more reasons to love him?)
Kind of wish that the code is binary, something like 01001010 01001000

It just dawned on me today that the Dept. of Public Transportation is the biggest secret sponsor of BTLIOF. It makes us believe that fate finds you on the bus or waits for you in the stop.

    They are advertising public transportation!! To cut down traffic maybe??

      Yes! Also with all the reinforcement about the importance of recycling and using public transportation to cut down on carbon emission, this turns out to be a quite a environmentally conscious show!

        love it! pet foods also have quite a large ecological footprint, but cats eat less than most dogs.

    Fate(and love) does find you sometimes in public transport. I did find it once, even though it was not my one true love.

There is so much buzz about the preview for episode 11 that I start to think there needs to be a special recap just for the preview. 😆

You might be thinking about this Jung-min when you talked about love (for now), but you were thinking about Ji-ho as your one true BFF, right? Right? Because besides cohabitation and contract marriage, this show is going to kill me softly with another favorite friends-to-lover catnip. I surrender 🙇🏻‍♀️🙇🏻‍♀️🙇🏻‍♀️

    Thats good, actually my first thought was of Ma but I like this better.
