Beanie level: Errand boy

I have not been hooked so quickly by a drama recently than by Todome no Kiss. Within the first 20 minutes I knew this time traveling drama was something special. It feels like the an interesting fusion of Groundhog Day and Nine. Onto episode 3 and hopefully the ride will be thrilling all the way to the end!

    Keep me apprised. There’s something about Japanese shows with ‘kiss’ in the title that put me off for some reason. But I’ll happily watch if they can assure me the female lead isn’t infantilised.

      The main female lead, or the other female lead? If you’re ok with the main female lead not being ‘infantilized’, then I’d really recommend checking this out.

        In a perfect world, none of them would be infantalised but I’ll settle for main female lead. sounds like everyone is enjoying it so I’ll check it out. I’m looking for a new show now most of mine have ended.

      Will do, @leetennant! I just finished episode 3 and it actually feels like the opposite 😂.
      mild spoiler the lead is being force-kissed by the female lead which causes him to somewhat unwillingly travel back in time. He is also a hard working working male gigolo who mostly caters to rich demanding women.

Watching an otherwise dignified alien trying to dress to impress the reincarnation of his human crush with terrible suggestions from his fox clansmen is a great example of the lighthearted charm of Moonlight and Valentine.

Viki’s Dept. of Censorship is diligently at work. Is the image of horse poop illustrate excess of intense violence, sexual content, risky behavior, or substance abusive? I want to read the transcript of this meeting.

    I wonder if it was Viki or the original broadcast though. Doesn’t Korean television censor knives? Because I don’t think I’ve seen them censored in the films I’ve seen on Viki, which leads me to believe they are just playing the drama as they have received it. But still, blurred poo is pretty damn funny.

    I saw that. Not sure why I squinted to get a better look. 💩💩

    I’m pretty sure kdramas blur out knives, poop, and vomit. I’m not sure what else. As for me, I’m grateful for the vomit censorship.

    My favourite part is that when itā€™s in a pile itā€™s blurred but in a different scene when a character is throwing it itā€™s not blurred

I want this to be “What We’re Watching” header, which captures my face watching the adorkable Dr.Ye whose mind is out of control experiencing the inner yeunami of love for SmileyBaby Woo.

Curse myself for checking the fan wall at work because it takes such self control to stop myself from squeeling like a little girl looking all the Ye posts! Also this makes my day at work feels so much longer since I am counting down every minute to watch ep12 when I get home. Ottoke?

I butchered @outofthisworldā€™s limericks and adapted it to the old English ditty The Girl I Left Behind Meā€. A scribbled draft for a possible rallying cry for all shipping and Islander Poemiesā€¦

This Ye Linerā€™s response to @outofthisworld‘s request for @growingbeautifully‘s BoHo comparison to beautiful okra flower and fruit: Dr. Ye is more like a bumble bee who now can no longer deny the loveliness of the Borchid in full bloom and is drawn to her despite his best Yeffortā€¦.

        OMG are you now fantasizing Dr. Ye with facial hair? Because I totally am. *faint and dead*

        Also, yay @cloggie you are back!! Hope you had a good disconnection!

          It’s good to be back! Disconnect was great. I now have an enormous kdrama backlog but I wrote a poem šŸ™‚

          Really not sure about Dr Ye with facial hair but I just watched the episode where he’s giving himself advice in the mirror and that was very funny. Almost made him seem human rather than a Ye-bot? Wished he’d done that from ep 3 or something.

      I love bumble bee (Transformers) and maybe Dr. Ye might want to listen to the movieā€™s ost What Iā€™ve Done.

    LOL @PettyNoonaWhoBuysDr.YeKimbap

    That’s quite apt indeed! One of my first photos had not a bumble but a little bee in the flower! So now in my garden collection I have Bo Young (flower), Min Ho (okra) and Dr BuzzYe Bee!! 😂

    So after exhausting all the nautical analogies for the shipping war we are going into horticulture and … biology? Ok, I’m in.

    By the by, I’d like to point out that the Island has many beautiful flowers and insects for ye’nspiration.

I thought a half-smiley Dr. Ye was my favorite thing, now it is the angsty Dr. Ye.
I thought a jealous Min-ho was my favorite thing, now it is the half-smiley Min-ho.
My favoritest thing though is still a hero who owns lots of books.

I am falling in love deeper and deeper with Bo-young who surprises me each week with her inner strength and boundless capacity for empathy. We are all looking out for you, uri Crybaby!

The Korean Physical Therapy Association (especially the sling therapists) must be thrilled with the show. It makes total sense that Crocs is a sponsor, but it didn’t even register me as PPL until I see the end credit. Good job marketing team on seamless PPL integration!

    I knowww. I noticed that Crocs was their sponsor in the beginning, so I was already waiting for the placement to come up – and I was so pleased to find that that’s how they did it! Because of course, PTs would wear sensible and comfortable crocs for everyday! I won’t be surprised if Lacoste was a sponsor too, because it makes sense that a rich kid like Nam Woo would wear Lacoste.

      In short, my marketer heart has been very happy with the placements recently hahahaha

    I laughed when I saw that Crocs sponsors the show. Genius PPL is genius!

Judging by the opening credit photo, could one of the gossip girls be the endgame for Nam-woo? Is 🐊 still semi-attached underneath that doctorā€™s coat? Why is the ocean fog so impenetrable in this show? Waeeeee?

If the show’s biggest sponsor is Korean Literature, we Poemies are wearing this PPL on our sleeves -transcribing poems, reciting poem, writing poems, loving and allowing ourselves to be moved by them.

Long live the Forgotten Poet Society!

Today I choose joy, and joy, thy name is Bo-young.
Talking about drama induced shopping, I want that tote!
I also kind of want her tote to say “Today Choose (James) Joyce”

Exactly my sentiment at the end of episode 7.
Thank you for the good poetry, and see you tomorrow Dr. Ye.

Also, can this please be the photo for “What We’re Watching” this week?

      I thought these “Yebservation” posts might serve as persuasive propaganda to entice some Beanies to defect to the Ye-Liner. 😆

          Yes, yes, Yeda wants @wishfultoki to the doc side come……(sorry I am getting carried away with Star Wars puns today)

          I think we might get a glimpse of his growing feelings for Bo-young in episode 8. Dr. Ye is a wounded by his past relationship, so I don’t expect him to show his feelings easily, but end of episode 7 his knowing look during dinner and looking in the rear view mirror while driving away all point to the awakening of his feelings.

            Er, ye Star War puns to the dark side might bring me… they happen to be my weakness. I’d love to join you, I just need to be convinced to take the plunge.

            Don’t know: was that knowing look during dinner more of a ‘is there something going on between these two?’ Anyhoo, Episode 8 is a deal-breaker for me. Expect some kind of statement from me later. XD
