Beanie level: Errand boy

Sharing this drawing I did for Arthdal (my next one shall be for Flower Crew) and hoping there will be a second season so I can see Eun-seom make his way back to Tan-ya properly. Or more of Xabara.

Arthdal Chronicles 아스달 연대기 – this drawing took months to complete. And may be my magnum opus for 2019. I’ve to admit that I’m terrible at backgrounds and this is my first time attempting flower crowns… the complexity of this piece made for countless long nights and frustration. Regarding Arthdal Chronicles: being a big fan of Song Joong-ki, I was extremely excited for this comeback. And maybe I’m a bit biased but he definitely shone in this drama by playing 2 different characters – so well such that at times, I completely forgot they were being played by the same person. Perhaps the very different outfits and looks helped. And Tan-ya, of course, was a goddess throughout. When I think about this scene on a conceptual basis, it felt a lot to me like a scene out of the Garden of Eden. At this point, Eun-seom and Tan-ya were safely ensconced in the village of Wahan, safe from the evils of the outside world. It was only after the tribe was brought to Arth that they realized feelings of jealousy, fear, cruelty… and these feelings manifested themselves in their own actions too. I find it a pity that this show was not wrapped up in these 3 seasons. I was curious as to why the plot was moving so slowly and it all made sense at the end. We didn’t get to see Eun-seom conquer Arth and make it back to Tan-ya, and perhaps this is the greatest disappointment of the show.

No SLS for me for this drama though… I love Soo but I love her more with Hoon. I kind of really need another scene of him removing her marriage binyeo for REAL this time.

    Although one of them tries to let her make her own decisions, while the other decides for her. It’s clear to me which one she loves and belongs with.

I loved Goblin so much; I’m beyond thrilled to see them again. I just LOVE Jung-rok, he’s such a teddy bear inside. I bet that smile means he’s already half-enamoured with her. That iconic handshake!

I… have major Second Lead Syndrome. But not really in the “he should get the girl”, more of the “I want him for myself” way. Is it just me? I haven’t seen flattering comments on this show here.

    I’ve been loving the show but definitely never got SLS.

      I think it’s that turtleneck, I already thought he was so cute and derpy in the 백수 (unemployed) tracksuit but when he showed up in that turtleneck + button up + coat combo.. I was like.. ok where do I sign up for O-sol’s Rejections? 😂

      Ooh I’ll go watch! Ive seen the press conference, they all look so goofy.

    I feel the same way about our rooftop/psychiatrist SL. I love his friendship with O-Sol but that’s it. I much prefer him to be with another person… (or with me) Heeh.

      He’s a great friend and they’re so cute together as friends but I think there’s no romantic tension and sometimes she’s too awkward around him. I much, much prefer him with someone else (aka me). HAH. 😂

      Busy busy busy and stressed to the point that I can’t enjoy dramas! I can’t think of any other word to describe myself right now haha.

      Suggest me a scene (or some to choose from pls!) – I must admit my memory is a complete sieve with huge holes and I can’t think of any particular scene except the one in the hotel where they were adorbs. ☺️ but to be fair I am actually working on another drawing now so I feel like by the time I’m done with MY we would be mid way into 2019 and everyone would have forgotten him. 😂

    And I second muchie’s request! Please draw something from TSHLYE 🙏🙏

How’ve you guys been? I’ve been taking a break from dramas for a long while and turned to variety. I haven’t followed K-pop for years but just thought I’d share this here. ☺️

View this post on Instagram

It’s been a significantly more stressful period of time, and I’ve been feeling a lot more lethargic and less motivated about the things I have to do. In the midst of this period, I dropped most of my dramas and turned to watching variety – because laughter is always good for the soul. Then YouTube recommended me a video, and when I hovered my mouse above it, it showed a short preview of Min-hyun dancing his silly dance on Happy Together. It caught my attention, I clicked, and the rest was history. Drawing has always been a huge source of stress relief for me. On days when I felt insanely tired, and just so burnt out, I rewatched some of my favourite clips of him singing, opened my drawing programme, and drew a few more lines or added a few more shades of colour in. Even if it was just for a few minutes, it made me feel better and less stifled. In a way, it gave me energy to return back to my dreary books and projects. .(PS. I know there are 11 members in this huge group, and it’s amazing that I even started listening to their music because it’s been years since I’ve actively followed any K-pop band at all. But my favourite member is Min-hyun. And even though he’ll never see this, I just wanted to draw something to show my support for their comeback.). #ReviveinFive #FreshLoveSG

I know it’s over but there’s a huge Hwayugi-shaped hole in my heart now and the withdrawal symptoms are made worse by the fact that I didn’t have closure and can’t even rewatch the last episode over and over again… because I can’t even bring myself to watch it once fully with subs. I don’t even feel like watching any other drama at the moment. Ugh. 😭

I have a lot of things to say about the last episode. I’ve organized them into 10 points. I wish I could burn down the Hwayugi world, but I’ll refrain from spoilers here. See you guys on the recap!

    I am sorry this did not work out better. But hey, we can cut it at episode 18 or rethink the ending. Not that this would be first in drama world.

      That’s exactly the first line in the long comment I’ve prepared.

      “Maybe like how OG erased his memories of SM’s death, I should erase my memories of having watched this last episode. Yup, E18 is the last episode for me.”

      You’re a mind reader!

      I think I’ll take your advice. Haven’t seen the last two eps, and think I’ll stop now. Thanks!

    Just an irony because this is the episode that I really thought the Hong Sisters leveled it up – which they did at some point, but then *loooooooooooooooooong sigh*

      I think I got to a point where I was just desperately hoping for anything at all, even the lousiest, laziest excuse for it to all make sense…

I know I’ve hit a new low when I don’t feel like watching any other show and am just spending time rewatching (AND rewatching) episodes of Hwayugi…
My heart is pulling a Sam-jang on me. Don’t fall for the show when you know it’s only gonna hurt when it’s over!

    I got deeper and read and reread posts under Hwayugi recaps.
    This is going to be one hard withdrawal. But I still cannot wait for the ending.

      I did that too 🙈 oh man I’m really gonna need something to fill in for it when it’s over.

      I saw the preview and I’m kinda like ARGH but I’ve learnt not to trust previews so I’m just waiting and waiting for Saturday to come. The hours pass so slowly when I’m waiting for new episodes!

Reading all the threads in E18 of Hwayugi and @mollyp @allphryne you ladies crack me up with all the thirsty comments about LSG. I had a good laugh! Can I get in the line to be a tribute too?

Rewatched old episodes because waiting for new ones is too painful and… shopkeeper granny DEFINITELY looked very uneasy when Mawang spotted the boy in her shop. (Also here’s a cute gif of 50)

Awww this is like a family photo 😍😍 (He looks like he’s great with kids, especially in All The Butlers!)

Also TVN… something is up why are barely any cuts of OYS and LSG together? 🌚

I don’t do justice to their gorgeous faces but… I hope this conveys how much I loved that scene in E14. Every word was brimming with sincerity and I felt it, too.

View this post on Instagram

#Hwayugi E14: 제천대성 손오공은 인간 진선미를 진심으로 사랑해 There were a lot of scenes I wanted to draw from the current episodes. The scene in the book-demon's library, the scene after he gives her her own Geumganggo in Summer Fairy's bar, and this one. But this one won out by far because I think it was the most sincere I had ever heard him been. Plus, the geumganggo plays such a pivotal role in the show that I felt I had to do a scene where it was shown clearly. I think a huge question we all have is – what was the purpose of the GGG? Was it meant to make anything between Oh-gong and Sun-mi a farce such that they would never realize the extent of what they felt, as per the conversation between Frosty and Patriarch? Or was it just a means to attach a powerful demon to Sam-jang so that she would be safe from all the evils waiting to prey on her? Whatever the purpose, I'm sure we all know it worked – perhaps a little too well. For Sun-mi, the only way she can think of to stop him from dying is to remove the GGG so that the stone monkey's heart hardens again. Oh-gong doesn't want the GGG removed because he knows that while it is on, he will never be able to kill her, and if it comes off there is a very big possibility that he might be the one to kill her in the end. Not just that – as per some comments I've read, Oh-gong, like Sun-mi, is afraid of what might change if the GGG is taken off. The gravitas of the matter weighs heavily. By keeping it on, Oh-gong knows that he's going one step closer to his possible death. And yet he will keep it on for as long as he can, out of his own free will and sincerity. What a long way Oh-gong the character has come from those episodes when he was snappy, brash, and blamed the GGG for all his actions, never failing to remind us all that he was waiting impatiently for the day that the GGG would come off. And for a centuries-old powerful demon to put down his life for a human? I think that's the thing that makes us all fervently hope that we get a proper happy ending. On another lighter note, Seoyugi/西游记 (Journey to the West) is one of my favourite childhood stories and I personally have a very soft spot for the character of Sun Wu Kong/Oh-gong.

If ASN really has to switch souls, then can she die in SJ’s place while SM gets her powers so that SM and OG get to live an immortal life happily ever after? (Side note: Angry monkey = Hot monkey)

    Okay, so this is what I don’t understand. Are they trading souls or just switching bodies? If Asanyeo’s soul is inside Sun-mi’s body, will Sam Jang’s responsibilities and fate fall on her? Is “Sam Jang” Sun-mi’s soul or a Sun-mi’s body?

    1
    1

      This is something I’m trying to understand as well! I thought MAYBE they switch souls like SM obtains ASN’s past memories and the life she led, while ASN takes on the role of Samjang, aka her blood is lotus scented etc. This is because of the conversation between the 2 where ASN asked SM if they would like to switch blood since the rose scent has always been stronger than the lotus scene (but SM sassily snapped that her blood had its own powers too).

      In that case, I believe if the souls are switched, then the bodies don’t change… ASN just gains SJ’s role. HOWEVER the issue with this theory is ASN keeps saying she wants SJ’s body so she can get rid of Buja’s body, so now I’m confused as to how this will work.

I really couldn’t resist this scene because I loved it so much. Spent more than an hour and I still can’t get his face right! 🙁
