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!! 😜

    Do you know what his story is? I mean, biography? I can’t find anything on him.

      Not really, no. First for to know him on Running Man. Then lately on Master in the House. Only know that he is a hip hop dancer and choreographer and runs dance studio with his wife MMary, also a choreographer/dancer (she choreographs Hyuna). He’s also a regular Judge on Competitions and dance programmes like Hit The Stage. He has an Official Youtube channel – J-Black & Mary Official. I am currently watching them on “Daughter-in-law in Wonderland” but there are no subs. His family is lovely. Me wanting to know more too. He’s just so cute. They both are!

HPL – thank you for overturning the tropes, for depicting mature relationship, for conversations, for not having noble idiocy, for Deok Mi and above all for Ryan Gold.

Could our overlords and their minions consider recapping The Secret Life of my Secretary and maybe drop one of the dramas that is not \’doing it\’? I only ask because the Supreme Overlords have in the past declared a drama utterly stupid and declared an all stop and gone on to others. I am sad we did not get to gush over Ryan and Deok Mi in real time – but thank profusely Laica who did a first half review (and looking forward to part 2) and also Beanies wall. TSLOMS is really really fun and captivating, despite huge plot holes (which miraculously gets ignored) and it will be fun to have the overlords POV and insights. I miss the insights on the subtleties that we non Korean speakers miss. What say?

    I can think of a drama being recapped rn that isn’t exactly ‘doing it’ 😛

      Heh heh – me too – but didn’t want to name it cos there might be some who like it and I do not want to upset them.😜

      “Abyss” and “One Spring Night” ? lol

        I think One Spring Night is doing well? I’m not watching either one but I read the last recap for Abyss and you can sense the outrage radiating off the screen

          I like One Spring Night, but it seems that a majority of Beanies are scared to get into it because of the feeling of being scorned by “Pretty Noona…” XD

          Yea, it’s sad that a Park Bo Young– PARK. BO. YOUNG– drama is getting such poor reviews T…T

            Also, Netflix has One Spring Night so U.S Beanies can’t watch it (legally) until July.

    Even without actual episode recaps, it would have been great if there was a post dedicated to discuss the series or the week/set of episodes. Kinda like Open Thread or What are you watching type of posts. Beanies walls are great but posts get buried so easily specially when a topic/beanie/theme takes over.

    And is it due to the lack of good or fun kdrama recently? There aren’t as many comments as before …

So, lest I forget the story so far, I decided to rewatch HPL, plus I got hubby interested and he wanted to watch even though it is not completed (but with one week to finale, I figured – no problem). So, we got to episode 12 and their penthouse date and that\’s when I noticed it – that Deok Mi had her legs hooked over Ryan\’s leg while snuggling (I\’m pretty sure – cos I made hubby check it out!) and it made me irrationally happy. LOL!!! Anyway – happy finale to all beanies watching!!

    Hubby commented that both Ryan and Deok Mi are a tour de force in HPL. Both can keep up toe to toe with each other (acting wise).

    To my surprise, my hubby has also become a voluntary watcher (up until last week he was subjected to it since we both hang out in the living room, and he enjoys making fun of his 30 year old wife blushing over a kiss). Romcoms are for everyone!!!

      😂 mine laughs at me for squealing over a hand hold!! And that line when Ryan shook his head and said “I’ll drive” was soon romantic – I don’t know why!!

Hmmm – maybe the full scene will be in ep 15 but then again PD-nim might be purposely avoiding comparisons with WWWSK.
