Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

Went out shopping with my mom and dad. I’m waiting for mom in front of the changing room and then I hear THIS. I got so damn excited I probably freaked out the shop staff. This is the first time I’ve heard k-pop out in the world, it’s such an exhiliriating feeling!

    Love it!!
    I got super excited this week because I was listening to Blackpink and my cousin told me he’d listened to them before on the radio <3

What a cute, cute show it was. Greasy Melo was an incredibly fun ride, with great characters, wacky premise, nice story and lots of FOOOOOD (jjajangmyun will be haunting me in my dreams…).

My love for Jang Hyuk and Junho only solidified, but I also came to adore Jung Ryeo-won, whom I heard about, but never really watched anything of hers. She was so damn adorable as Se-woo 😍

I had few issues with the show, of course (*cough*mom*cough*), but the relationships between the characters were done so do well that I didn’t mind a little of sighing. The kitten cuddles, the food and winks made it all worth it ❤

    I liked this show a lot even though a few last weeks were a little bit snooze fest but this week’s episodes were so good and had everything I loved about this drama! 🙂

      This week’s eps finally brought back all the best thing about this drama, and I’m quite satisfied with that.

      Agreed – the mom made the show really hard to watch at times. But in the end, everyone got to work at what they loved. We got to see Poong and Sae Woo get to really love each other…
      And that winking – that was just so cute!

    I’m going to miss it. I loved the main trio.

    I’ll miss this drama. I’m always happy when I can watch a drama that avoids noble idiocy and gives minimal screen time to the characters I dislike (looking at you ex-wife and her boyfriend and the ex-husband). Although, I could have also done with a lot less “mom”.

Those two are so beautiful together, I can’t. They care for each other, protect each other and respect each other. Why does this odd pairing make me feel so happy?

Came back from my little Vienna getaway and there’s a lot to catch up!

1. Greasy Melo. I still love this drama so much, despite its flaws. It has so much heart and is just damn fun to watch. I adore all the characters (though I’m watching you, Se-woo’s parents…), they are all so meaty and different. The story is still engaging, and I think it’s exactly because our cast is so varied and interesting. Not to mention my love for Junho went straight through the roof and it keeps growing…

    Junho is oscillates between adorable and HAWT in this drama. Especially that last scene from the end of episode 34…

    I still kinda marvel at the fact that people used to (may be even still do) think Junho isn’t handsome. If Junho’s not handsome, who the eff is?

      Yeah, usually he’s all rainbows, playing with kittens and bromancing with Jang Hyuk, but then BAM! and we get a make-out scene on the counter.

      I also think it’s outrageous some people might say he’s not handsome, but on the other hand he does have unique facial features, especially his eyes are attention-drawing. I’m all for non-standard types of beauty, but some people have more of a basic approach to those matters. We all have our preferences 😁

    According to Amber, he (and Peniel) have trained themselves up so if anything were to happen, they would be able to help or save themselves… It’s Eric that is the useless one (other than knowing how to be pretty) 😂😂😂😂😂

Just finished My Dear Boy and I have to say this is one of the best Taiwanese dramas I’ve ever watched. Admittedly I haven’t watched that many (especially compared to Korean dramas), but still 😁

I always have a moment, be it only an episode or three or half of the drama, when TW drama makes something wrong, or simply becomes stupid, and I end up getting annoyed. But this one surprisingly had no such moment, and I was seriously surprised. I did have a moment of frustration, but it was completely in tune with the story and I fully understood the motivations behind the choices.

Though it is a really slow drama, the relationships between characters and their interactions are all enjoyable, so you don’t feel like it’s dragging. The leads are winning, both together and as individuals. I especially adored the guy, and Derek Chang’s performance definitely had a lot to do with that. Ruby Lin was just as good, and so was the supporting cast.

Overall, it’s a really really great drama, and I totally recommend it. If you’re a fan of a good noona romance with a lot of heart, you will not be disappointed.

    Oh good to hear. I put it on hold when we strated working overtime, I m going to enjoy finishing it. And Derek C. sweetness Is why I’ll do it.

      And yes, Derek Chang is such a good reason for watching this. He’s the best 😍

    There’s some really good Taiwan dramas out there:
    Autumn’s Concerto (I always fall back on this one whenever I want to watch a drama that I can watch but don’t need too much concentration to focus, just because the dialogue is so easy 🙂 )
    16 Summers a.k.a. The Way We Were (also starring Ruby Lin–the 2014 drama, not the 2018 Mainland drama that has the same English title)
    Prince Of Lan Ling (co-production between Taiwan & Mainland China)
    Fated To Love You (the original Taiwan version that the Korean remake is based off of)
    Murphy’s Law of Love (noona romance, but it’s hardly noticeable)

      I did watch Autumn’s Concerto and Murphy’s Law of Love. First one is so iconic, I think everybody should watch it, and the second one is one of the better TW dramas out there. Thank you for those other recommendations 😊

I wanted to pick up a Taiwanese drama again, and this time it’s My Dear Boy. I’m at the episode 16, and I have to say I love it. I feel for the characters, I like the story, and Derek Chang is on his way to become my new favorite 😍

I’m anxious, because TW dramas tend to screw up on the last stretch quite often, but for now it was an even and steady ride. It was a consistently good and satisfying watch and I really hope the last few episodes will remain the same way.

    What’s it about?

      Well basically it’s a noona romance. We have a woman who’s heartbroken, and a young man who’s unsure about his future and also in unrequited love. Those two meet and become friends. We see how it progresses and how they become an influence in each other’s life. It’s a really slow burner, and the plot is not very high stakes, but the story is character driven and the characters are great.

Even a person like me, who\’s completely indifferent when it comes to sports and such, has to admit that France vs Argentina match was pure joy to watch. It was dynamic, intense and exhiliriating all the way through. I\’m damn impressed.

Also this 😂 Somehow I can totally believe that Young-joon would name a dog like this. He’s the definition of extra, so his dog had to be just as extra as the owner.

    I couldn’t help but think maybe he was ad-libbing right then and they decided to go with it. Notice he called the dog Big Bang a little later.

      Wasn’t it because Mi-so said to shorten the name to Big Bang? I thought that it was cute, since he didn’t really agree, but then went along with it anyway.

        Well yes, but maybe they were still ad-libbing. whether or not It was still so cute.

He’s such a hopless, self-centered fool, but when he shuts up for once and instead speaks through his actions… Damn. Just damn 😍

This has gotta be the most dramatic entrance I’ve seen in a long while. And that watermelon at the end (Chansung’s expression is gold)… I’m dying 😂😂😂

Omg, I love the mature and playful chemistry those two have. They adjusted to the new situation so quickly and became couple goals right away. I’m jealous.

After the loooooooooong wait (the perks of living in Europe, everybody! 😑) they finally arrived today. And I’m so so in love. They look crazy beautiful, speak to my sense of aesthetics on so many levels (you can’t go wrong with the black&white combo) and the boys are everywhere!

I mentioned before that I’m not really a type to buy physical albums, but since I’m not going to see them this year *excuses herself for a moment to cry in the corner*, I decided to support them in a different way and buy all the albums. And I will! And my shelf will become the most aesthetically pleasing corner in my house! Can you imagine a more perfect thing? 😍

      You’re kind of right, but Junho is not the kitty’s mom, so it doesn’t count! He’s an uncle at best.
