Beanie level: Errand boy

Maybe facial hair will have a strong presence in Dramaland in 2018, and so will Ji Soo! He does look so incredibly manly here with his sideburn extension/chin curtain.

      Am I the only one who liked his sideburns in Moon Lovers 😀 But I gotta agree that the sideburns compliment his face more now with the haircut.

In addition to wanting to instinctively cheering people around me with “hwaiting”, I sent a text to a friend colleague late last night to congratulate him of no longer being the maknae at work. His confused reply: The what?

Beanies, I think my life now is just a running Dramabeans comments.

Lee Yi-kyung, you have my vote for best mane of glory 2017. It takes onscreen charisma and comedic ingenuity to pull off all this level of hilarious pretty. Best prop ever.

    The scene with him getting all that hair chopped off was hilarious and heartbreaking. 😂

    It takes serious skill to pull off locks like those in something that’s not a sageuk.

      How do you like it? I am only on episode 2 and not yet completely invested in the story yet. Do you recommend it?

        Imo it’s pretty good for a tw drama. They didn’t abandon the mystery plot as they are still on it at ep10. No noble idiocy so far, and I actually enjoy the humour scenes. There were some plot twists too that is keeping me interested.

        But, I suggest watching this with an open mind and not to compare with kdramas (which was what I did in the earlier episodes).

          Thank you! I was born in Taiwan but ironically never was able to watch beyond the first couple episodes of any Taiwanese drama for reasons I don’t quite understand myself, but this might be the drama that will break some personal record for me!

            Wow that’s pretty interesting! I love watching tw dramas long before I started on kdramas! I would binge watch a 20-episode drama in 2 days, and sometimes my addiction goes as far as watching those dramas that airs daily and have around 50-ish episodes.

Why so cute A Love So Beautiful!! Our sweet female lead Xiao-xi had the biggest crush on the male lead Jiang-chen all through high school. The romance is progressing now they are in college. Even though our female lead Xiao-xi is achingly innocent, our male lead is also a guy who feels embarrassed when she asks him why he kissed her by making up an excuse that as a med student he was merely doing research to get a sense of how the epidermis structure of the lip feels differently from other forms of skin contact.

In this scene, Jiang-chen acknowledges that they are indeed on a date and proposes that they spend the night together which stuns Xiao-xi. The surprise is so great that she chokes on the spaghetti and part came out of her nose and made it onto the wine glass. Feeling deeply embarrassed she immediately proposes to break up. Jiang-chen hides his smile and sits next to her. He consoles her by saying that he didn’t see a thing but then proceeds to tease her by asking what she had in mind when he was merely asking her to keep him company while he studies for a difficult exam.

He wins this round.

    Is this a Mischievous Kiss remake?

      It is not a MK remake but the female leads is completely enamored with her crush. Thankfully although he is blunt but he is never an ass and does watches out and cares for her in the beginning. Later he does have to work to regain her affection. Definitely a super sweet low angst easy watch!

Slowly making my way through A Love So Beautiful and there are just so many adorable moments!

Jiang-chen (our curt and unexpressive male lead) and Xiao-xi (the sweet and innocent female lead) grabbing some cold drinks after the college qualification exams:
He takes a sip, sees that she is eyeing his drink and says “This drink is too sweet.” He passes his drink to her. She gives her drink to him, takes a sip of his and says “Watermelon juice is still the best.” He looks at her says as-matter-of-factly “They are all just made with powder of different flavors.” She looks away briefly, and says to him in a hushed voice “I always feel that someday, someone is gonna punch you.” He looks at her and gives her both drinks. She smiles and put both straws into her mouth.

She wins this round.

Both running errands and being a boy for months are exhausting..Snow is falling so beautifully this morning.. Hwaiting for the day when I am able to take a much needed repose on the rooftop. Aja! Aja!

I finally have figured it out. To quote Cher in Clueles, Black Knight is a “full-on Monet” which “from far away, it’s OK, but up close, it’s a big old mess.” Recommended viewing at one’s private home for all the cheese cut.

Checking out C-drama A Love So Beautiful on Beanies’ recommendations. What an angst-free fluff fest that oozes so much sweetness and charm! For those who is drawn to height difference, they cannot even fit in the same frame 😆

          It is hilarious when the kids try to talk like they are in a period drama or make up funny slangs, or try to fake poetics where I can see a non-Mandarin speaker would not be able to fully immerse in all the funny. This makes me think about how much I lose by not understanding Korean when I watch all these Kdramas! Definitely need to put learning Korean on my list!

        Love 020 was totally cracktastic! I did have to get over the look of the CGI, but at least it is suppose to look unrealistic because they are literally in a game.

        LOVE 020 is cracktacularly flufftastic. It also has one of the best implied same sex romances I’ve seen in a drama. The wordplay had me laughing out loud.

        My only complaint with the show is the lead female got so thin I was concerned for her.

          “cracktacularly flufftastic”, 😂😂😂 this is definitely my favorite descriptor this week!!

          I always get so nervous seeing same-sex romances in Asian dramas because they are almost never portrayed with enough sensitivity. But when it is done well, I am just so tickled!

            I loved how the gang just reacted to and supported the relationship without making a big deal of it. And, they were adorable.

        And for the most part their character development makes sense and seems natural.

    I waited till it was completely subbed and binge watched it over 1 long weekend…great choice for fluff fest

    but I kinda cringe sometimes on the dialogues,I’m just not sure if it’s actually the dialogue or how they were translated..

Although Beanies are not commenting much on the video section, some of the titles are such clickbaits and the descriptions are hilarious! Some examples:
“Hello, my favorite not-a-Daughter”
“My feet are not fat!”
“Mood-maker vs mood-killer”
“I meet violence with violence”

Are these your genius creations, @mary?

    I have occasionally gone to the video section and commented…but only on the ones I’ve watched. But I do get a bit impatient coz of the short little ad. I just want to watch the video and have that one scene (I’m talking about you INAR) break my heart all over again.

    Since there’s no like buttons, maybe I’ll go and comment with a heart or some kind of emoji….hmm…the problem is when will I find time???

      There’s a great idea to have a “like” button for the videos! Sometimes I wish that there is “like” button for Beanies’ Theme-of-the-Month submissions.

        I wish for the same thing for the themes as well. Sometimes I don’t have much to say but enjoyed reading them. So I’ll just say something silly (or silly to me) just so they are acknowledged.
