Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha *inhales* hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

(Now that I know what kind of drama this is, I’m enjoying it so so much. Just turn off your brain, throw away all expectations, and roll with it!)

Eh, this drama is a cliché on a cliché, has a subtlety of an elephant and I facepalm a lot, but… This man is just too good! Yoon Kyun-sang is doing amazing things with this stereotype of a role. I’m laughing time after time at his ridiculous expressions and overreactions. It’s cheesy, cringy and weird, but he’s selling it so well, I can’t help myself but continue watching. The power of thicc boi! 😍😍😍

    Then thou hast done what I could not, for I forsook this drama soon after its premiere. Verily, it was not my cup of tea, thic boy notwithstanding.

      I still have a hard time abandoning the sinking ships. I watched Revolutionary Love, Goodbye Mr. Black, Great Seducer and other disasters, hoping they will get better after few episodes, and hate-watching when it wasn’t happening.

      I don’t find this one the worst thing ever, and I really love both YKS and Kim Yoo-jung, so I’m feeling more forgiving and willing to give it a try. But I would be lying if I said that it’s an easy and breezy watch. The presence of the marshmallow you see above helps a lot though 😉

        Yes, I imagine that the marshmallow does indeed help.

    I too am enjoying this show if for nothing else, to watch him spazz out over the things that he’s afraid of. But also looking forward to his calming down and letting the kind and good man come out more and more. He is a marvelous actor!

      Yes, he really is! His freak-outs are the cutest and so is his budding affection towards Oh-sol.

      You’re saying you want to see his softer side, and while I do agree with that (to a certain point), more than that, I really wish that they tone down Kim Yoo-jung’s character a bit. I get it, she’s over the top to emphasise how different they are, but sometimes her antics are just plain obnoxious. I love the actress, and because of how insanely cute she is I let her get away with a lot, but she tests my patience at least few times every episode.

        I think we are going to see both of them soften and grow up a bit as they get used to each other. She will become more responsible and cleaner and he will ease up – but it’s going to take a lot more due to the reasons why he is so broken. 🙁

Just watched A Star Is Born (I know it’s late. It just premiered in my country, so yeah…), and I really liked it. But more than that, the music… It was simply breathtaking. I’m always drawn to kinds of songs which are kind of rough and show the vulnerability of the artist, and here the entire soundtrack feels like this, I loved it. And this one… Damn. The harmony between them, the lyrics, the raw feeling it has. Perfection.

What? Cement? What? What? A duet with an emperor? What? Rocky theme? What?
This drama is going to be one hell of a ride!

      This is not another level, this is another universe. Comletely different entity, more exaggerated than makjang could ever be.

I checked out first two episodes of The Last Empress, since I was all excited about Jang Na-ra&Choi Jin-hyuk pairing. But my only reaction is: what the actual FUCK did I just watch?! It’s not even makjang, it’s far far worse. I was laughing half of the time and cringing the other half, it’s so over the top and dumb. And there was no Choi Jin-hyuk, dammit!

Should I continue for the funsies though? It is hella funny…

    Honestly, this kind of reviews make me really want to watch it! Besides, SSR <3 <3 I've missed his handsomeness!

      I keep saying I want to see him acting as a good guy for once. I think that’d be pretty amusing to watch because everybody would still be suspecting him if he’s going to off somebody 😆

    It’s actually a new genre that I didn’t think possible until I watch this show. Makromcom. A fusion of makjang and romcom with a sprinkle of ‘what did I watch this again?’ reaction.

    I watch a bit of ep1 and that royal/royalty angle is just a cover for daily drama level of makjangness~

The shallow part of me took over, so forgive me for what’s to come. I have to say it, otherwise I’ll burst. Yoon Kyun-sang is such a thicc boi!!! I was distracted by it half the time. He’s so tall and squishy, I can’t. Most of the kdrama leading actors, even if they are tall, are very slender (Lee Min-ki, Lee Jong-seok for example). But this guy’s like: “Nope, Imma be thicc all I want!”, and honestly I’m all here for it. I mean, dayum! Look at them cheeks (ambiguity is a beautiful thing), them thighs, them arms! 😏😏😏

And when you think it can’t get any better, mix it with his dashing looks and you’re gone 😍 Damn it, I forgot how handsome he is, probably because he keeps posting the pictures of his cats on IG (btw, I love that he’s such a cat dad). Hit me like a truck.

I’m so so sorry for this (not really).

P.S. The drama’s pretty nice too, I guess.

      That’s true. But even Yoon Kyun Sung hasn’t escaped criticism. I’m not sure if it’s only from international viewers, but I’ve seen many comments referring to him as fat and/or bloated.

    I’m on the fence about the drama, but I do agree with your thoughts about Yoon Kyun-sang. He is a very tall man, and it’s good to see a leading actor with some meat on his bones. 🙂

    Just like Lee Jang Woo. I think this is why I like them both. Handsome, tall and meat on their bones.

Eh, this one… The pairing and the supporting characters were cute beyond words, but as a whole it simply felt flat. I never really felt invested. Sigh, I guess.

Just watched Burn the Stage: The Movie, and I loved it. But believe it or not, I’m not writing this post to fangirl over how good the movie was (though it was so so perfect!).

I feel amazing. This is the first time during my 3 years with kpop that I’ve been to an event where other fans would be. I never had any kpop liking friends, so I kind of kept it to myself, watching everything at home and fangirling by myself. But today was so beautiful. I felt free and at ease. I was among people who perfectly understood the fact that I love those seven dorks even though I’ve never met them, because they love them just as much. I was talking to the people I didn’t know and it all felt so natural and so nice. I even made few friends!

Supporting boys on your own feels great, and I’ve been doing that ever since 2015, but the not being able to share this experience takes some fun out of it. But today… We all laughed together, cried together and I felt closer to the boys than ever before. The entire experience was out of this world. For the first time I felt like a part of something bigger, something wonderful, like I belonged with this fandom. I felt like a true ARMY. And I loved every second of it.

    💜💜💜💜 I’m so happy to read this! I’ve read again and again that attending a concert is like being surrounded by a sea of love and it sounds like the movie is similar (in that way).

    It’s screening on November 25th in my country. So I’m still waiting. and hoping I get tickets.

      The movie is probably less intense than the concert, but the feeling is there. It’s warm, sweet and you can feel united with other fans. It’s just great 😊

    Oooh another (no more lonely) fan since 2015. ^^
    I was all on my own until some Army beanies burst into my life & things have been so much different since then. Somehow I ended up loving the boys even more & made a bunch of new lovable friends.
    The magic that BTS brought to me~~~💕

    Loved to read about your experience. Please fangirl over how good it was hehe. I’d love to know more.

      Aw, I’m so happy you’ve found somebody! It’s so much better when you have people to fangirl/fanboy with. Best feeling ever.

      And the movie… Where do I start? It was shot beautifully. Some shots, especially those showing guys in their quiet moments, or on the stage, are art. I was blown away by how good it looked. Secondly, there is narration in the movie, and I swear, each sentence sounds like something that the members would say, especially Nam-joon (did he co-write that?).
      Overall, it was an amazing reminder of how big of a breakthrough 2017 was for them, and how much they’ve evolved as people and artists. But some aspect did not change. They still stick close to each other, care for each other and fool around at every occasion (while Yoon-gi watches them judgementally with a wine glass in his hand, lol).
      The movie was spectacular. It had laughs, it had sadness, but most importantly it had heart. I loved it.

The fluffiest song I’ve heard in the while. So much positive energy, so much cuteness! Didn’t know Stray Kids are so versatile, I love it!

I found this article on allkpop, and almost died laughing. Poor Yeollie 😂

Allegedly, one scene in the drama had to go through a minor change due to Chanyeol’s tall height. Spotted in the drama’s latest teaser below, the telephone scene had originally required Chanyeol to be inside an enclosed telephone booth, a box which was apparently too small for Chanyeol. The scene had then been changed to him standing outside in front of a smaller public phone station.

(The article: https://www.allkpop.com/article/2018/11/exos-chanyeol-couldnt-shoot-this-one-scene-in-memories-of-the-alhambra-because-of-his-height)

All the secrets and lies just pile up and slowly become overwhelming, and in the middle of it them, trying their damn hardest to make it work. I feel so anxious for them.

This scene was so so powerful, I loved it. The words, gestures, expressions – everything was just perfect, conveying all the longing, all the fear, all the love. Their chemistry is out of this world. I mean c’mon, did you see the way he was looking at her? Daaaaamn.

P.S. Please, no spoilers. I’ve managed to avoid them until now (more or less. Not knowing why people looove to spoil shit in the comments on yt or drama sites…And I ask: why would u do dis?) and I’d like to keep it that way. Thank you ☺

    Well, I think it’s not a spoiler to say there’s a possibility they’re siblings after 12 episodes? They’ve been dropping hints from the start… The question is if they dare to go that far, if they’re really going to drop the most devastating ending in the history of k-drama. It could as well be just a red herring giving all those heart tugging moments.

    Just like our couple, I’ve gone to the point of no return, so I might need the therapy sessions after this 😭😭😭😭

      Yeah, they’ve been kind of hinting at this. But what I want to avoid is people summarizing the Japanese original’s plot, and believe me, I’ve seen comments like this few times.

      I’m the same. My heart will break all over the place if they’ll give those two the most painful of endings. I really, REALLY hope it’s just mind games with the viewers, though I have to admit that it would be a very bold, fascinating move story-wise.

Totally forgot about this, and it hit me like a truck… Here are some fangirl observations:

Loved the shot with Namjoon rapping and his minions dancing in the background (the MV in general was shot so so well).

Wet Jin.

Hobi’s dancing gives me life, and so does Yoongi wearing that damn hat and poncho.

95’ line is out there to kill me, as always.

Maknae got (even more) cocky lately.
