Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

There’s a beautiful yet heartbreaking poem in my language that I couldn’t stop whispering to myself while watching the last 15 minutes of CLOY.
It says
“من به چشم خویشتن دیدم که جانم می رود”
It means “I, with my own eyes, saw my life is leaving”

    YOU’RE PERSIAN!!!
    I’m not watching CLOY but I screamed a little when I read that line because I know this whole poem!! WOW!

    Not Persian, btw, just know the language and understand bits of it, my parents can speak it though!

      Haha, yes! I’m Persian.^__^
      Our countries are somehow neighbors and I’m so happy you could read and recognize the poem.
      Sa’di Shirazi was one of the greatest poets in the world and now after eight hundred years his poems are still the best. So romantic.

      Thank you for your comment! It made me smile🥰

        LOL! Yes, we are neighbors!
        Also, our alphabets are basically the same, so this post just stands out!
        He’s one of my dad’s favorites!

        You’re welcome, it was actually really nice to be reminded of this, such a beautiful poem!

    I didn’t know which language it was but it sounded familiar until Azzo said that it’s Persian. I love the sound of Persian, it’s on my top priority to learn if I ever get the time.

I rewatched CLOY because I had FFed some scenes to protect my poor heart from breaking to pieces and also I didn’t want to lose the sweet taste of Chocolate and THE epic kiss on Saturday night.
Today I FFed again! I am not strong enough to see Hyun Bin n Son Ye Jin cry in the middle of a snowstorm..

+this scene.. I cried n cried..
++my dearest Chocolate, come sooner n save me from sadness

I need help! I need to know these people’s names.. I know nothing about singers. Are they famous? Do I need to feel stupid for not knowing them?:))
It has been more than two weeks and yet I can’t stop watching their performance. I love them.

And this guy..🙊 I need to see him in a drama

+I loved seeing Si-won’s watching them sing. He looked calm but I don’t know why I felt like there was something wrong.. he looked like he was faking. I mean, we do know some don’t enjoy these kinda ceremonies.. I’m sure I’m wrong but it just came to my mind.. btw he looked gorgeous

+my face was like Kim So-hyun’s! I was surprised to see such a show. Strange but very pleasant

    This reminds me of the first kiss between Lee Seo Jin & Uee from “Marriage Contract” …. It also looked like Lee Seo Jin was going to break Uee

I sincerely apologize! I regret being mad at the writer for taking so long to let Kang know who Cha Young actually is because the way he realized was amazing!
The fact that they were in the exact same place and situation healed my wounds! My heart was about to stop when CY nodded and confirmed! The look on Kang’s face was like the look of a child that had lost his mother in the crowd and felt scared and lonely like the world was ending but then suddenly found her and there were no monsters and shadows anymore! Shocked, relieved, happy, about to cry,.. Kudos to YKS’s acting skills! 
And the preview of ep. 13! How on earth am I going to wait?

I feel ashamed to say that whenever I’m watching this drama I can’t stop thinking about how heavy YKS’s body looks. Sorry 🙈🙊

    IKR. It takes like forever to get to see what we want but it totally delivers and makes the most sense as to how it happens – triggered by Uncle Fisherman’s passing preceded by the cooking/drinking session. Kang’s emotional build up over the past episodes has finally reached the eruption point that he just wants to be around CY, to be able to talk to her and to have his own private time with this woman who wreaks havoc to his emotionless state. And Ep 12 delivers that avalanche!

      And I think KYS’s heavy look is part of the acting to show a lifeless man. I still rememeber one particular scene in Beautiful Day with a zooming out of LBH’s back – which looks sad and heavy that is tear-induced.

      Let’s see if KYS’s body will light up. I recall him being bouncy and ‘light’ in the Greece running sequence at the beginning of Ep 1.

    I saw that reenactment too!! And when i was watching the preview for ep 12, I had to watch ep 1 (for the first time ’cause I was only reading recaps til ep 10). And I squealed!!! I loved that both of them were smart enough to figure it out!

Dear writer, do you know how long we have been waiting for you to let Kang hug her?!! Damn! We deserve more! More n more!

    More than halfway done at that! And I love her face when she suggested that she will drive him to Wando! There’s that determined look and thankfully Kang didn’t argue with her XD

I came to write I surprisingly (for myself) enjoy Chocolate more than Crash Landing on You but realized I’m not Eunuch in drag anymore and shouted YESSSS! 🎊
Anyway, today I found myself rewatching some Chocolate scenes again and again but nothing from CLOY more than once.
I love Saturdays because I get to watch both of these dramas but I choose to watch Chocolate first. Lee Kang finding himself in love is what gives me life.

What was inappropriate in it?!

    Nobody knows…

    The only one I’ve worked out is that you can say “spoiler” but if you put the “alert” after it that’s an inappropriate word.

      s o c i a l i s t is apparently on the list too, I was flagged once for it and now I got inappropriate word notice, when I tried to post this comment.

    I’ve had it happen to me a few times. And it’s frustrating as I didn’t use anything that could be considered inappropriate and it erased everything I had written 😑

Chocolate!
The name itself was enough for me but then I realized it wasn’t actually the chocolate! It was Yoon Kye Sang that I wanted.
I never knew how much I missed him until today. My boy is not my boy anymore. Now he is my man. All grown up!
And Ha Ji Won! I’ve never been her fan! I don’t know why but here.. But now I like her. She managed to bring tears to my eyes staring at him playing in the snow..

And I guess it’s the first time I was ready to give the girl to somebody except the lead.. He broke my heart to pieces staying there, trying his best to win her heart..

I love everything about this drama except that annoying brother! His dialogues are too many!
P.s it must be a very difficult scene to shoot for everybody! Looks damn cold☃️🌬

    ‘I realized it wasn’t actually the chocolate! It was Yoon Kye Sang that I wanted.’ THIS!!!!!
    I am also immensely excited to have YKS back on my screen. I just hope we’ll get to see his smiling eyes and dimples in this melo…sooner than later.

    The premiere expected my expectations and I hope the drama will good morning until the end. I’m happy to see Ha Ji Won back in what looks like a nice drama. I didn’t expect to become so attached to the second lead but how can we not melt in front of him as a puppy in love and as a caring best friend.

    They were, and actually EJ was the most interesting story of the entire drama. But did i miss sth about Yah Pd’s story? I remember there being a line of his sad story but it wasn’t discussed?

      he doesn’t have a sad story. Rather, he explained that he really feels for the kids at the orphanage and their stories. And that was that.
      That conversation actually happens around the same time as in the pic above.

The kiss was followed by:

“I love you too”

“사랑해”
“저도 사랑해”

I Wanna Hear Your Song

Well, I wasn’t supposed to like it so much but I ended up counting seconds to watch ep 5,6,7,8 but again I wasn’t supposed to be this disappointed…. Sigh!

The whole time I was watching, I was asking myself:
What the hell is going on? Why are you here watching another miserable female character who was supposed to make you happy as she is a timpanist but then she is just happy to be an assistant cleaning rooms and chairs! Too dumb to be manipulated by a stranger “I know he is hot and I know I couldn’t resist him either but still🤦🏻‍♀️”, there are so many flashbacks but she is still clueless, driving with a guy at midnight to a mysterious house n drinking coffee while he is talking about his dead brother.. Ah! Wish I could stop pointing out the flaws!

The story is going too fast and there were scenes I felt offended! The way the music was played when they started kissing was ridiculous! It was like somebody suddenly clicked on ▶️!
All in all, these recent episodes let me down but I am going to watch it till the end for Chopin’s Nocturne in C-sharp Minor’s sake♥️

    I know the female lead is pitiful, but I am liking this drama a lot! hehe. However I too felt like the writer should’ve made the heroine a good timpanist. I mean isn’t she suffering enough? They should’ve made her a good timpanist at least. But I still like this show and the hour passes by quickly when I am watching (which is what makes a good drama in my book). I
    also didn’t expect the H/h to kiss so early on in the drama.

    However, now I’m thinking that the reason for her not being a good timpanist is in order to get her to interact with the male timpanist (he’s finally agreed to give her private lessons). I feel that in this drama all the male characters, and that one female character, are hiding something – which makes the mystery/suspense plot more interesting.

      I will keep watching to see her become a great timpanist because I was hurt to see she is content being an assistant and not trying harder to improve her skills and make everyone amazed ( just begging that guy to teach her wasn’t enough after being humiliated in front of all those people). They owe us a successful heroine!
      That violinist girl and our two guys’ secret seems to be too easy to guess but I hope it is something more complicated..

      Haha, about the hour passing quickly! I know the feeling. That’s how I find I am enjoying a drama or not too^_^ It didn’t work for me in this drama but I don’t dislike it either. I will wait for ep 9,10^^ I love hearing Song Jae rim’s special voice and Yeon Woo jin is damn fine!

        Hahahaha i don’t know. Just reading the plot made me think “ok this is going to be an awful drama”. I mean… so many different genres, lots of cliché…
        I’m obsess with it though ? But like i said, i know it’s bad, i just find it extremely entertaining. But i’m ready to drop it when it stop entertaining me.

        Hahaha but what you said about the kiss scene, i’m surprised ? I mean, a kdrama without an obvious dramatic music during the kiss… DOES IT EXIST ??
        (yes it does, but let’s be honest it’s pretty rare)

          Oh noooo! I wasn’t complaining about the existence of the music! There MUST be music but what I was saying is the way the music was played! It is like sb ▶️ and then suddenly turned the volume up.
          I was complaining about it to my sister and she said oh c’mon marina, the kiss itself is important, don’t make a fuss😂 and I guess she’s right!

          And I must say the last part of your comment made me remember Reply 1994 when Trash oppa and Na Jeong were kissing and there was no music except the sound of their lips which was so loud🙊

            LMAO i was thinking of Reply too. Except i was thinking of Reply 1997 and the stair-kiss ? except i think they said they had to use music to cover the kiss sound because it was so loud. I’m not sure i don’t remember that well actually. We’re so used to not hear the kiss in kdrama lmao.

            I didn’t notice but i get it, i’m sometimes sensible to this kind of thing. But yeah, i guess the kiss itself is what’s important hahaha. But i understand, sometimes the way they edit it can be sooo frustrating.

You four,
I know you’ll end up being broken to pieces n I know I’m going to be there with you. Shattered.. hurt.. hopeless..

I can’t stop listening to Le Secret, Op23, No.3 (Barbara Bonney, Warren Jones). The song that is played when they get together. It oozes melancholy..

Enjoying this drama hell lot!
Liked the idea of using birds called Love and Faith as a metaphor. It gave them the chance to play with the term “love”..
Love, where did you go?
Love, please come back?

+ I’d love to know if they did that with the light on purpose or not! It is strange!
