Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

INTERESTING” you say @javabeans?
Would mere “interesting” do the following?

Causes involuntary motor spasm to anyone in proximity

Makes an adult-size man look THIS sexy in purple

Causes temporary blindness of fellow men while walking

Makes me wish that all cakes is garnished with pineapple

Now to eternity, I am ready to defend @egads’ battle cry: Pineapple Over Perm!!!!

Here are a few of the ways our heroine Qing Qing of Accidentally in Love is such a boss:

She dances when she is happy

She teases when he is jealous

She kung-fu high-kicks when he is in need of traning

She is not afraid to have her emotions on full display

She knows what she wants and demands it when she wants it

    @zetteceniza has posted instruction to watch all subbed episodes:
    http://www.dramabeans.com/members/zetteceniza/activity/596880/

    More and more episodes are also slowly becoming available on your garden variety back alley sites.

    Synopsis:
    If you are like me whose brain is mush at the end of the day and all you want to gnaw on is fluffy sweetness, Accidentally in Love might be your pancakes for dinner. This C-drama may logic fail you countless time (countless because arithmetic is challenging for my tired brain), but whatya gonna do? I am so in love with this drama puppy that a second is all it takes for me to forgive all the boo boo it makes accidentally.

    The heroine Qing Qing is an absolute boss who not only has 1 but 2 (or is it 3? Again, counting is fruitless in my state) hidden identities. A beautiful chaebol heiress raised by an overprotective grandfather, she sets off on her quest to find out more about her parents’ deaths by camouflaging herself adorably with thick rim glasses and painted freckles in their college alma mater (or is it high school, again, puppy I forgive you for peeing on my logic carpet.) Qing Qing is assigned as the desk partner of the most popular guy at school who is also an idol with popularity as adorably outsized as his ears (adorable threat alert! just like everything else in this drama.) Through her quest she rules the black market snack ring, take the snap out of the mean girls, and successfully tutors our hero, yes, math (win for learning!)

    Adorableness lasts 30 episodes with each episode is a breezy 30 minutes. Recommendation of skipping Ep. 26 & 27 for some uncharacteristic anti-adorable angst.

Yoon-Byul might be one of the coolest tertiary drama characters. Not only for how she handles so honestly her feeling for Sunbae but even more so that despite having to face his rejection she still insists on finishing her iced café mocha with a little cream.


Please upvote if you are like me who gets a little peeved when a glassful of perfectly good beverage goes wasted in dramas.

    She is one of my favorite characters on this show, and I would like a spin off of her and rapper girl just taking on the world. No romance needed, they will just live out their dreams with coolness and aplomb and not let people’s crap make them doubt themselves.

        Hear hear! Hyun-yung’s dream of becoming a rapper is curiously dropped from the story ever since the first couple episodes. I do hope that the Writer will at least bring more to her story besides her friendship with MR and her crush on Sunbae.

          K-netz didn’t like this addition in the drama, so perhaps they scrapped this off in response to their strong criticism.

            really? Since they added a friend (which was not there in the webtoon) they might as well make her a cool rapper, right?

            So what does MR mean by watching a movie would take too long? 🤣 Or she purposely hooked KS into making candles knowing that would probably take even longer than 90-120 minutes?

            It is so cute that she ropes KS into slave labor into her part-time business, and he has absolutely no objection.

            She thought a movie would take too long and he will end up staying long. I guess candles take a long time too (I have no idea).

            @kimbapnoona @mayhemf You guys, LOL.

            This definitely called for a bit of research on YT and google as I have never done any scented candles before. HAHHA. The things this drama make us do.

            Anyways based from here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VgY2gbneVo and here https://www.proflowers.com/blog/how-to-make-candles unfortunately for us </3 it doesn't take that long to make them :(( The longest duration was the stirring the wax (10-15 mins) or heating it up in the microwave (5 mins) until it melts. It's the wait for the wax to set that will take 2-4 hours. So unless Mirae meant that they needed to wait until wax is set too, I think she really meant it when she said making candles is shorter than watching movies. </3333

            Regardless, one looks "seriously" injured and needs to be nursed. Perhaps this requires an overnight nursing? 🤣🤣🤣

            0

            We thank you for your dedicated research, @13infamyss! What good is a candle if it isn’t set properly, right? MR totally wanted him to stay until the full completion of the project.

            I think KS does require overnight healing. I mean he already tested how comfortable he would be on her bed by sitting on it earlier in the evening. The boy leaves nothing to chances.

            Thanks for providing a hearty laugh on a Monday morning!

            He went straight to the bed – he doesn’t think about ‘what others will think’ ever! For him, that’s where he put Mirae when he brought her home. That was a special moment and he wanted to sit there and feel her bed.
            And MiRae is the exact opposite – her mind goes into overdrive and she thinks a million things.

            I love the simplicity of Kyung-Seok’s love for Mirae. He is just so focussed on his liking for her. No external factor is ever going to change that.

            This week is a relatively light week for me at work, so am hoping to go back and watch Ep 2 onwards and capture KS’s observations/interactions – now that we know he already likes her.

            I love Kyungsuk’s too! Like you said, it’s simple, but speaks volume. I loved that he never made us feel wary of his feelings for her.

            Siiigh, guys, it feels surreal that this week will be the last! I do want my weekends, and literally my life back, but I am going to miss these two TT____TT The withdrawal will be so bad, I just know it. It sucks too that I can’t find a preorder or survey for this drama’s director’s cut bluray. I need a physical copy of this drama to stack up on my shelf. -___-

            “I do want my weekends, and literally my life back”
            can’t agree more. And this drama took some of the precious summer weekends/evenings. It would have been great if this were a winter drama – because I usually have nothing to do those weekends.
            Anyway, there will be some withdrawal symptoms for sure!

            I started ‘Ghost detective’ and liking it so far. I paused everything else Sunshine, 30n17. somehow, I would rather rewatch Gangnam episodes than watch new episodes of other dramas!

I don’t know if you guys have checked out Rabb.it, but it has been really fun to use that platform to group watch with Beanies. I think it would be loads of fun to check out couple episodes (like episode 13) with you guys and we can type our comments and reactions in real time!

            Ooh I’ve been hearing much about the platform Rabb.it – never tried it though! Sounds like it would be a fun experience, especially for a marathon sesh!!

            I think it was lovely the way he revealed when he first fell for her, especially since it was pretty much the same night that he had clocked on that it was high school Mi-Rae – in essence, ep 1 was merely a continuation of the feelings he clearly already had for her since high school years, otherwise he wouldn’t have actively stepped it to protect her at every point.

            It was nice to have him say it out loud though, even though to audiences it was pretty obvious from the get go how affected he was by Mi-Rae. Come to think of it, he has always been aware of her presence, and would noticeably soften his gaze where she was concerned, right from the very first ep. If you go back to the scene in ep2 where they walk back to campus after he protects her from that evil sunbae, he throws a side glance as though to track her position when she’s walks behind him and slows his pace as a result. It’s all very subtle, but you gotta thank the directors for adding these details in.

            @namedx And I love it too how he fell for her first. I always have a thing for K-dramas with male leads realizing their feelings on the girl first.

            RE: I totally give my hats off to the director! If it weren’t for him and his skills in directing mirco-expressions, we wouldn’t be here spazzing over little things in the drama. He seems like a fun director to work with too based from their BTS.

            I’ve got to comment on his accurate directing based from the BTS I’ve seen. In the scene where they were locked up in the dept lounge, Soo Hyang banged the door while asking for help from the outside. The director called her attention not to bang the door. It put a smile on my face, because director-nim was right. It’s very out of character of Mirae to aggressively bang the door. I love them directors who understand their characters well 🙂

    OMG YES! A thousand times YES! I was SO SATISFIED and happy when she FINISHED HER DRINK! It was the perfect opportunity to just get up and leave (her drink), but girl stayed cool, calm, and collected, and just, YES. The way she handled herself after Woo-young turned her down was so admirable. I can only hope to be as cool as her if I ever get into the same situation. Her finishing her drink was the cherry on top for me. Ha.

Perhaps I was going through Meteor Garden translation withdrawal last night, I decided to translate its beautiful OST Love, Exists since the only translation I can find online does not do the lyrics justice. The process certainly reminds me how difficult it is to achieve the perfect balance between the literal and the poetic, especially when the original text itself perhaps at times is compromised within the framework of a pre-composed melody.

Huge thanks to @natzillagorilla, @dokutokunaneko, @zetteceniza, and @sicarius for your help during such a fun brainstorming session!

    如果愛是場最轟烈的冒險

    It is you who have salvaged us and

        Thanks for pointing this line out. I have to agree. The person who wrote this line really hit the mark.

          It shouldn’t make sense, but yet it does. Especially if you consider the personalities of both DMS and SC.

            Hehehe well…I’m not talking about the drama. I only watched the one episode that I watched with you folks yesterday. ^^; I meant IRL.

            You guys picked out the line that we agonized over the most!! It was difficult to choose the right word that would be as close to the literal meaning but still sounds sensical in English. But @egads you are absolutely right! The line reads beautifully given the context of the story.

            The song at times feels like it is Ah-si’ love letter to SC, and some lines from SC to DMS.

            @kimbapnoona I really like how this one line sums up DMS’s embracing the vulnerability of being in love. A vulnerability that he was unable to reveal in the rest of his life. On the flip side, SC finds a new strength and power from their relationship and is moved to action when even when most scared (even if we want to shake some sense into her for being uber-hesistant sometimes).

            And maybe I’m over analyzing, but you all nailed it.

            (If I may just add – I interpreted them to mean that “I’m able to rely on you, and sit back. I don’t need to do the fighting always, sometimes I can be timid/mild and you’ll do it for me.” OR “It’s okay if I’m timid/not alert and defensive/offensive for once, because you’ve got my back.” Hehe – it’s a different interpretation that REALLY appeals to me, but I haven’t seen the drama, so that’s all I’ll say. End of para.)

            @egads I don’t think you’re over analysing at all. I really love what you got from that line. 🖤

      Well done! It reads so poetically as well. Now I wish someone would go back and retranslate the entire show. Netflix has the worst translators my goodness.

    Awesome!

    Translation is not simply knowing both languages, it takes much more. Plus this is a song so it’s doubly, triply hard. So kudos to all of you!

    Thank you for giving the lyrics the justice it deserves! And the lyrics that you all analyzed is one of my favorite lines in the song along with this one: 我要的愛 只在你身上存在 (and not because the characters are easy enough for me to read, LOL). You are right, the song at times feels like it’s from DMS to SC and vice versa.

    Thank you, noona! <3
    These lyrics are so gorgeous! I'm currently trying to write the characters down (not all of them, I'm not crazy) ^^

What would Shancai do to tame the “angry hedgehog” as Overlord @javabeans describes it?

Will she

Why should you watch Meteor Garden 2018 ep 36 and 37 raw with fellow Beanies despite the sloppy live subbing? Because upcoming cohabitation hijinks may include our OTP:

making sure each other is dressed warmly

and practicing body art together

falling asleep gazing at each other with stars in their eyes

and still get to wake up to this bright smile

exploring each other’s body reluctantly at first

and then taking initiative to find out more

Don’t you want to take a peak with us?
