Beanie level: Wrongly accused fugitive

On of the most iconic OST from one of the most trope-filled drama of all time (I think I counted 11 tropes?) sung by the one and only JDH. Best version ever (to me!)

To all Beanies – take care and take precaution. I pray that God will watch over all of us.

I have a fondness for the piano. I came across Bella & Lucas and wanted to share them with you. Just lovely.

I had this cassette tape when I was younger and my siblings and I loved them to bits!

Hmmmm Music March… I love music. All genres. And I have moods – sometimes its classical, sometime its Dean Martin. sometimes Andre Bocelli, sometimes oldies but goodies and them there are the musicals. Which then puts me in the mood to watch movie musicals and there we go down the rabbit hole again!
Anyway – one song that used to put me in a happy mood is this :

I want to start Hi Bye Mom – but – the tears! Sigh – same reason I have not watched Chocolate – cos don\’t want to be teary! Hubby and I had just finished RDTK 1 while waiting for CLOY to binge watch. And he\’d heard of Chocolate and wanted to watch. So, hubby watched it and said “you should watch!” – hence I sneak watched while he watched. He is very forgiving of medical inconsistencies – he just blankets it in one word “drama” LOL!!!
Meanwhile, I\’m dealing with CLOY ending by watching The Game – Towards Zero and Tell Me What You Saw – while shouting at my screen – gloves!!! Nothing like blood, death and gore to uplift your spirit after CLOY doldrums, right? HAHAHAHA!

    P/s sneak watch – I still have not watched the whole thing – random snatches. Maybe I should just watch Chocolate and HBM at the same time.

    Unfortunately you won’t be able to avoid getting teary/ugly crying when you watch Hi, Bye Mama. I’m embracing the feels though so come join me 🙂

    Chocolate was a cry fest until I became immune.

    Fjdjdjdjdj who let Min-ki put on that hat!!!

    Poor guy, he was teased incessantly about this for YEARS despite saying in interviews that he was fine if Yoon Eun-hye did like Kim Jong-kook, that he was fine with being her friend, LOL.

    I remember seeing a comment on DB a few years back saying “Who knew that awkward, gangly, shy goof from X-Man would grow into this, I wonder if Yoon Eun-hye regrets not giving him a chance” LOL

    Although, to be fair, he is still all of those things… And yet also charming and hot as hell.

      BUT – I’m a KJK YEH shipper – if only!! LOL!!

    Do I still hope KJK and YEH to be together? YES.
    Do I think it’s possible? Probably No, it seems like they might have dated in the past briefly and hold nothing now.

It\’s the child who travels home to suprise you on your birthday;
It\’s the hubby who says \’I made you coffee” when you come home from work late;
It\’s the son who randomly calls just to hear your voice;
It\’s the daughter who video calls because she misses seeing your face;
It\’s the daughter, when reflecting on all that she receives and calls her Mom to hear her voice.

Love, February

I\’m not watching Nokdu till it ends. The only way to swallow all the tears is to know for sure that the ending is well and secured and HAPPY!!! Because otherwise the sad pill would be difficult to swallow while waiting week to week!

There was a time when it felt like all the Oppas (they are all Oppas ok!) went to Army and I was lamenting the lack of new leading men. And I thought – I won\’t have anything to watch anymore!! Well I shoulda known better. Also, it seems like as I grow older, my criteria for watching a drama has evolved and there is no longer one defining factor.
Then : I used to think – the story has to be good and makes sense
Now : I watch if it is entertaining no matter how loony it gets!! (The Last Empress LOL!)
Then : Story is good – will watch even if I do not know or really like Oppa
Now : Story is good – don\’t like him – will never watch!!
Then : Story is ridiculous BUT Oppa is cute – I have no time for this!
Now : Oh my gosh – who cares – I just need to watch whatever Oppa is in – even if it is watching him watching paint dry, story be damned! Even if Oppa gets shortchanged by the ending and/or story goes way south! (I blame – Gong Yoo, Park Seo Joon, SIG, Seung Gi, Lee Min Ki, Hyun Bin, Jung Kyung Ho, Kim Soo Hyun, Jo Seung Woo, Jo Jung Suk, Park Bo Gum, Park Sung Woong, Sung Dong Il, Jin Goo, Lee Jong Suk, Kim Jae Wook, Kim Haneul, Ji Chang Wook, Yeo Jin Goo, DO, Hyungsik, Siwan, Jang Ki Yong, Seo Ji Hoon, Jang Dong Yoon – OK – I\’ll stop now – cos the list is getting long! That\’s just off the top of my head.)
Notice I\’m skewering younger and younger! LOL!! That\’s cos they are getting younger and younger!!
OK! wait! I digress! This post is to say – thank God there is a crop of up and coming new \’Oppas\’ who will likely dominate the screen in years to come and I can continue my journey into the world of fantasy that is the Kdrama. Happy watching fellow Beanies!!

    Oh My, My, My!!! The anxiety of thinking I missed a few names!! Why didn’t I put Ma Dong Seok, Woo Do Hwan, Yang Se Jong …………………….. this will never end – so – never mind! They are all there somewhere, swirling in the recesses of my mind! 😂

    Thanks for the laugh. I kind of experienced what you’ve gone through except that I have no oppas in that long list of yours. Up to now, I thought it’s just me. I don’t stan anyone easily otherwise how to explain that in my almost ten years of kdrama watching, I have a few I like and only a couple which I followed for a while with more interest? So I was blissfully unaffected when the oppas went army and back.
    But I’ve been noticing more and more new faces and younger too. I love it when I discover and enjoy a good performance from a relative unknown who isn’t that popular yet and don’t have millions of deluded fangirls defending them.

      Me too – the ‘discover and enjoy a good performance form a relative unknown……’ part.

    Ooohh looks like we’re opposite. Then: i will watch whatever oppa is in, Now: sorry oppa, i don’t have time/energy to watch something i dont like. But sometimes the love for Oppa wins and i hurdle through whatever story that’s muddling it’s way to the end – case in point, Bogum’s Boyfriend.

      OK that’s a new category – Story I don’t like – hmmmm let me see – so far I am tolerant of story that is ridiculous. But Story I don’t like – I may probably be like you – stop watching – and worst case scenario – fast forward to all Oppa’s scenes and skip the rest!! 😜
