Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

So there’s a pizzeria I usually go to and pick up my pizza I previously ordered online. Sometimes I see the cashier speaks to deliverymen and there’s a really cute one among them with a really cute smile. I went there to get my pizza and surprise ! The cute deliveryman was behind the cash desk, so I think employees must alternate. Anyway, I was happy to see him. He gave me my pizza and smiled saying “Don’t forget your sauce if you want it to be spicy”. It’s the first time anyone told me that since I go to that place and my heart skipped a beat. Yeah, because of that line and his incredibly cute smile. I never take the spicy sauce because it’s too spicy for my taste. But I still took it. It’s the only spiciness that will ever exist between both of us *cries in a corner*

    I have a feeling more pizza orders are in need and that you should find out his schedule and name! 😉

      I don’t know I am too broke to order more pizzas 😂😂 Today was the first time I’ve seen him behind the cash desk. So he must work on Saturday nights. One of his colleagues called him once but I didn’t hear his name properly. I am bad at finding infos on someone 😅

        Aww… Maybe you can walk by, slowly, on Saturday nights. He might recognize you and strike a conversation with you the next time you order a pizza…

          Or order a pizza and ask it to be delivered to you, maybe he’ll be the one showing up at your door!

          Or you know he could always write his number on a sticky-note and stick it on your pizza box!

            They are really busy on Saturdays so I don’t want to

            I discovered this place because of a friend. Whenever we’re at her house and a pizza is delivered to her, I wait at the door hoping it will be him. I tell my friend I am just making sure the deliverylan isn’t some weird dude, while I desperately hope he will show up 😂😂

      I thought about it. I already went there several times on Fridays and Wednesdays. I believe he doesn’t work on these days or makes deliveries. I feel like I am an investigator looking for a suspect and retaining hints 😅😅

      It has a high chance to turn out to be one-sided or that he already has a girlfriend.

    Everyone is focused on the possible romance and I’m focused on the pizza. It’s a side of spicy sauce ? To dip the pizza in or pour on top? This is confusing me.

      Yeah a kind of side sauce. They provide it for nuggets and such but there are people who eat it with their pizza. I don’t do it tho 😅

    Parasite was the best movie this year.

      What did you like about it? I liked the theme and the cast but didn’t expect this movie to win at the Festival de Cannes.

      1
      1

        I liked everything about it. Maybe the last minutes could have been a bit better but apart from that it was just very interesting and well made. It could have been predictable and made villains out of either of the three families but instead it made me wonder at every turn and to able to be unpredictable and still completely believable was the best thing for me. The cinematography was excellent, the directing and the cast too.

        1
        1

          I agree on everything you wrote. On the unpredictable part, I think towards the end we could have anticipated the events because the movie couldn’t have a really good or bad ending. Since there was no downright villain.

      Second this. As social commentary, Parasite is first class and left me very disturbed. The acting is also great and the comedic relief is a great release from what was otherwise a very difficult watch for me.

      It’s fine, I watched it two weeks ago haha I expected more since I have read lots of praise for the movie. Timothée Chalamet is a great discovery and I can’t wait to see him in Little Women.

      I’ve watched a few of his interviews and like his vibe. I am French so I love to hear him speak French, no sub needed for once lol

    I watched:

    The Dude in Me (really liked this one and suggest)
    The Witness (a Chinese movie that’s from 2015 which I really liked and suggest)
    Juror 8 (Not too bad)
    Jade Dynasty (Chinese movie, not very good)

      The Dude In Me to this day shocks me at how good Jinyoung was in it. I really thought he would be the weakest link but was surprisingly the strongest.

      What the hell 2019. 🙂

        I agree! I was sad at first that Park Sung Woong wasn’t really the main actor in the movie, but I ended up not being bothered because Jinyoung did a great job.

        0

      I’m putting The Witness on my list 🙂
      I wanted more of Park Sung Woong scenes in The Dude in Me. Otherwise it was an enjoyable family movie.

      Juror 8 was ok. It’s more a movie with to watch when you don’t know what to watch imo.

      Jade Dynasty exists as a drama with different actors, doesn’t it? I’ve read the story doesn’t flow naturally in the movie version.

      1

        I agree with wanting more PSW in Dude in Me, but I ended up not being bothered because Jin Young did a surprisingly good job in it.

        That’s the perfect description of Juror 8 😆

        Jade Dynasty is based off a really popular book series which both the drama and movie are based from. But they tried to crush a whole book into an hour and a half movie. So the plot made almost no sense and then the last 15 minutes was this sudden acceleration that gave you whiplash and made you confused. I don’t suggest.

          Jinyoung did well 🙂 Wow I better pass Jade of Dynasty then 😮

    I watched Parasite and it made me feel some type of way. I’m still not sure what emotion it was but I was definitely on the edge of my seat the whole way through.

      It provoked mixed feelings (in a good way) to a lot of people. I think the mix of different tons like light humour, drama, family story and social commentary in one movie surprised people.

Birthday Letter (2019)

It’s a 4-episodes drama special available on KBS World youtube channel. Mu Gil is very sick and asks his granddaughter to look for his first love after he received a birthday letter from her. The problem is it’s her granddaughter who actually sent the letter, so she starts to actually look for her and learns about their love story. They were childhood friends, each other’s first love and found themselves in Hiroshima when the atomic bomb was dropped. I loved this drama special as it tells an event I’ve never watched in a drama before. The story is heartbreaking in the second half as we see what the ex-lovers went trough in the past and that the granddaughter’s quest for her grandpa’s first love isn’t going smoothly. Song Gun Hee (I’m happy to keep seeing more of him!) and Jo Soo Min gave a really good performance as the lovers young version. They broke my heart and the older version played by Jeon Moo Sung and Jung Young Sook were as good.

If Talking Paid/My Story is Long/Ore no Hanashi wa Nagai

Mitsuru is a complete fan of coffee. He even opened a business, but it failed, so he’s still unemployed at the age of 31 and lives with his mother. One day, his sister, her new husband and her daughter have to stay with at his mother’s house because their house is under renovation. Seeing her brother every day makes the sister want to meddle with his unemployed life. Of course, Mitsuru doesn’t like it and they butt heads. I really enjoyed this slice-of-life drama where talking is – like referred in the title – the thing characters do the most. So, there are a lot of dynamic discussions about everyday things, not important at first glance, but leads to strengthening bonds between characters. My favorite relationship’s development is the sister’s husband and the daughter. They were awkward at the beginning of the drama and they grew naturally closer and bonded by the end. Mitsuru can be annoying at times and genuinely nice at other times. Even in his unemployed status, he doesn’t shy away from people and give good advices. Seeing Ikuta Toma back on small screen after a long time was so good! (Idatten is not subbed completely so I’m not counting it)

    I’ve been eyeing this one because I like Ikuta Toma lots, but have been waiting for it to be done and completely subbed. Thanks for the reminder.

    Mitsuru and his crazy hair are adorable. I’m still on ep 8 and I wish it had 16 eps so I could have more of this family and their lovely banter. This is exactly what I expect when I drop so many kdramas for being unrealistic, even when they want to do this kind of genre, it seems too contrived. These people just talk like real people, even the minor characters like the coffee shop regular customers are quirky but real. The thing I disliked a bit was the romance because it was too rushed and superficial, not worthy of the rest of the series so far. My favorite thing besides Mitsuru himself is how Kouji is this super nice guy and even a pushover sometimes, but drama shows this respectfully and we never laugh at him because of that. It’s refreshing because I think this kind of character is not possible for kdramas, they simply become idiots.

      16 episodes would be too much I think. Maybe it’s because I’m used to the 10-11 episodes of 45 min format, but more would be too much for the content.

      I absurdity loved Kouji! He’s just such a nice guy, I wanted him to grow closer to his now daughter. It was also nice to see Mitsuru being his confident.

    This show was great. I didn’t expect to like it this much. It spoke to me on many levels while remaining fun. Also I thought that it could never make me cry because it was always light hearted but in the last episode when Mitsuru’s family cheered for him, I cried with him. I would’ve loved a little more exploration in the emotions of the characters but what I saw was good enough and maybe I’m just used to kdramas digging deep and making the “moments”.

      When his family cheered for him, it looked like his future would be bright and that he will eventually find a job he likes. It was really hopeful.

      I liked this format, so the characters emotional moments didn’t look deep enough. It’s understandable that you are left with this impression when you’re used to Korean storytelling (a bit too emotional sometimes for my taste).

    “Your Japanese Isn’t Right” HAHA !!! I love it.

    I really liked this depiction of someone going through a quarter life crisis. There are plenty of young people who expect to have their shit figured out by 25 and when you it crashes, yeah, it sucks.

    But there is not extreme with this one like other shows. He has a loving parent, a place to stay, is social and liked and, here is important, is not the biggest entitled douchebag in the world. He is a little lazy sure, and acknowledges that he knows that he needs to be better and trying to figure it out.

      I love that his situation wasn’t dramatic. He just happened to be an average unemployed guy.

I went into fangirl mode when I saw that Byun Yo Han AND Kim Moo Yeol will be in the same movie!

Here’s the really short synopsis on asianwiki:

Seo-Joon (Byun Yo-Han) falls victim to a voice phishing crime group. He loses everything. Seo-Joon then works to find the head office of the voice phishing group in China. There, he meets Pro Kwak (Kim Moo-Yul), who is a planner for voice phishing.

Chun Woo Hee and Yoo Teo starred in the movie Vertigo two months ago. It doesn’t look like we will see him in a happy relationship according to asianwiki’s synopsis :

Seo-Young (Chun Woo-Hee) is a single woman in her 30’s and she is a contract worker at a company. She dreams of having a stable life, but her reality is far from that. She’s insecure in her relationship with her boyfriend Jin-Soo (Yoo Teo), who works at the same company. She is not sure whether the company will extend her contract. Her mother gets hysterical to her on the phone. Seo-Young gets tired of her daily life. For some time, when she enters her company’s office in a tall building, she experiences dizziness and ringing in her ears. During this time, her boyfriend Jin-Soo suddenly resigns from the company. Seo-Young’s stress gets even worse. She looks out of an office window and sees Kwon-Woo (Jeong Jae-Kwang). He is a window cleaner.
