Beanie level: Noble idiot

I feel blue in a new way!!
Jang Hyuk is gonna be in a drama as a supporting actor! Why the hell? What the f is going on in kdrama land? Such a strong actor being dragged down to play a supporting role is pissing me off. It’s not like I’m crazzzzy about him ( well, I somehow am), but I can’t see him go down the Wok of Love road again.
I know when it comes to historical dramas many experienced actors get involved but I’m just worried about his future projects.
He is still young and hot and amazingly talented. They can’t let him go down>.<

    But I absolutely loved him in WoL! It was one of the best roles of have seen of him!

    Second lead roles aren’t always a “downgrade.” Sometimes a supporting role does wonders for a person’s career and helps them hone their craft. There are also a number of second-lead roles that end up becoming as meaningful or even more meaningful than the leads (King 2 Hearts, Sassy Go Go, Healer, MDBC, Chief Kim, etc)

    Namgooong Min almost killed his career because he said he would only take leading roles. Did not work for a few years as a result.

    This is a fickle business where someone younger and cheaper is waiting in the wings to replace you.

      That interview by Namgoong Min was incredibly well stated and eye-opening. I always remember it.

        And Jang Hyuk does not strike me as the type that will be that stupid when it comes to role selection. Who wouldn’t want to take a break and not carry an entire series on their shoulders. Dude just finished a series where he was the lead and did a ton of stunt work. Why not change it up.

          He’s mentioned how you get fewer offers as you age. I don’t think he’s in a position where there aren’t lead offers, but he’s a workaholic, and from interviews I get the sense he just wants to act, and at this point in his career, if the role sounds interesting he will take it.

    I’m hoping it will be more an ensemble drama. Still waiting for details. If he plays the guys’ father or king of Joseon I will not complain.

It’s Friday n I have nth to do. I couldn’t convince myself to watch any of recent dramas so I decided to finally watch Fated To Love You.
Now I wonder who wouldn’t want to have a baby with this guy?🔥
Even his haircut made my ovaries skip a beat let alone his unique shape of lips! #blushed
+ Sorry Mrs. Jang.

Voting for “which drama made you laugh the most” took me like five good minutes to decide and that wasn’t because I was trying to find the MOST hilarious one! I just couldn’t recall laughing this year because of a drama! And it was kinda sad cuz I’m a rom-com person. From now on I’m gonna appreciate funny moments more. They seem to be rare.
Today these scenes made me laugh so I took screenshots to appreciate our 유니콘 씨는 . 🦄
(I love everyone except the lead actress n I hate myself for ruining the drama for myself. )

    Same. I’ve hardly laughed, but I watched few dramas anyway. I had to stop and remember that APAD had me chuckling a lot. Top Star made me laugh more than recent dramas.

      I haven’t watched APAD but I’d love to give it a shot. It may make me chuckle too 🤞🏻 I kinda need it.
      Top Star has many precious funny scenes. Actually I don’t care about the main story but the people on that island are so sweet. I love every single of them + Top Star’s body^_^🙊

        It’s quite funny. Just don’t get too invested in a romance and you will enjoy it. I like to laugh so ask if you want more recommendations!
        Hebe, Top Star’s body 👌🤣

          Oh, I’ll try to convince my heart not to ask for romance and enjoy☺️

I just finished rewatching My Ahjussi and now I regret the way I used my beans!
I’d love to go back and give all my 21 beans to this drama.

Me to My Ahjussi:
There will never be another you..

There are many good(?) dramas on air and yet I\’m not attracted at all. I see Boyfriends\’ posts everywhere and I know everything about Bo gum\’s, the cutest puppy in the world, smile and the breathtaking cinematography but hmmm.. I see Jang Nara\’s innocent face in videos, Hyun Bin\’s hair, Kim Ji suk\’s damn body, .. but no!

So I decided to rewatch My Ahjussi and godddd! What a drama! All the great feelings I had while watching it for the first time are back. \”Adore\” is the verb I prefer to use when I want to talk about the acting, directing, writing, make up, lighting, camera moves, shot sizes, sound editing, OSTs, costume design, … every damn thing!

All the dictionaries in the world need to be edited! They should change the definition of \”gem\” to \”나의 아저씨\”. I know I\’m overreacting but I genuinely feel happy the hours I spend on watching each episode. It\’s a blessing to my eyes and heart. And I do love the dramas that are filmed in winter. Those jackets, coats and scarves are able to make the characters look super confident or super miserable depend on the color and the size! Bare trees, gloomy sky, people being surrounded by an air of melancholy. These are winter\’s magic!

And at the end I need to say Lee Sun kyun and IU owned my soul with those gazes. They showed the purest kind of love without shinship or words and they will be my fav for the rest of my life.

    This is one of the best shows ever! I totally relate to your feelings. No you are not overreacting!

    I’m the same with you on your first para tbh. I watch BF but not feeling it despite all the pretty. I’m watching MOA and not feeling it despite the pretty and AR angle. So, I abandon everything and jumps into jdrama XD

    and My Ahjussi is good. Show that good, I wont mind rewatching it too.

    Agree on your whole post! My Ajusshi is just that life-changing gem that really touched me. It made me question whether I’m living the life that I wanted or am i just going along the waves. It made me realize that at the end of the day, we all want to be loved and accepted, and that it never hurts to be kind to others. There’s no use in staying in a group (or company) whom you know doesn’t have your back.

    Some of my quotable quotes from the show were the following: (I even have it posted on my closet as an everyday reminder)
    1. “If you don’t consider it to be important, then other people won’t either. And if you consider it to be serious, then others will think of it that way too. That’s how everything works. You’re the one who decides that.”- Dong Hoon
    2. “What happened in the past is no big deal. If you consider it to be a not big deal, then it’s not a big deal.”- Dong hoon
    3. “Live a happy life. That’s how you repay the people in your life.” – Grandma. (♥️♥️♥️)
    4. “Live happily and comfortably.”- Gyeom-duk
    4. “May you hang in there until you find comfort for yourselves.”- cast and crew

      It’s pure gem.
      I just loved every single of the quotes you wrote. That’s the beauty of this drama, so many touching dialogues that can teach a life lesson. I do feel better about myself after watching it because now I look at things differently. I behave differently. I feel differently. It wasn’t just something to entertain. It has so many messages.

          I guess so. I have been waiting for Bo gum and his smiles for like ages and I’m ok with his haircut but I even skipped watching the vids of Boyfriend on Instagram let alone the whole episodes. Noona Romance is not my thing.

I wanna go back and be reborn as Kong Hyo Jin. Not just because I DO love that girl but the fact that all the male actors of her dramas are my top fav men. Each of \’em own a piece of my soul!
Gong Yoo. Breathtaking is his middle name! ^___^
Rain, as beautiful as spring rain.
Jang Hyuk. Do I even need to say sth about this guy???
Lee Sun kyun . If voices had taste, his voice would have tasted like heaven.
Cha Seung won. That damn tall man won my heart over in City Hall. Such a great kisser. He almost swallowed Kim Sun a. >.<
So Ji sub. His name brings tears to my eyes.
Seo In guk. \'covers her mouth and shouts his name in pain\' ~.~
Ju In sung. He can play as a villain n still in my eyes he is the most innocent man on earth! And hOt.
Yoon Kye sang. Only sb as gorgeous as Honey deserves this baby boy!
Jo Jung suk. Hope Gummy sings for him while taking a shower^_^

She is just nine years older than me and nine hundred times luckier.

    maybe the hair. it’s just such a turn off. the hair concern is real. Felicity season 2 has low rating due to allegedly bad-hair-season for Russel. Do not underestimate the power of hair and the hair stylist….

      True.🤦🏻‍♀️
      I’m just simply sorry for the ones who say “oh, that haircut. I’m not gonna watch it” when it comes to decide watching sth new. It’s just too shallow.
      And here about PBG, as one of Beanies wrote, he is a “a free-spirited wanderer“! And in the teasers he is shown as a street photographer who is full of life. I can never picture sb who is labeled wanderer wearing fashionable clothes and caring so much about hair and even shaving! They feel free n take life easy and PBG’s haircut is on-point. He reminds me of Jack in Titanic the way he was before meeting Rose.
      But well, people have prefrences and they have the right to act on it. #peace

        lol, sorry, it was really a joke, a poor one apparently. personally, I am not really into the main characters premise. free-spirited guy and poor-sheltered rich women, just not resonate any interest in me. I might be wrong, but the first impression of plot is usually keep me away from watching even the 1st episode. Second, I am not feeling the couple. why ? because of their off screen persona. it is unfortunate, that song-song couple and PBG have such a strong impression off the screen either being a very close friend or powerful couple that very well known to the public. it may sound like lame excuse not to watch something. but if you promise the romantic story, you need to make their chemistry is believable. and for most people that adore both song-song and PBG outside the screen, it will make their on-screen relationship felt really wrong.

This advertisement reminded me of BTIMFL n Ji Ho when she was an assistant writer in charge of PPL scenes!
Ridiculously written scene. It was like a puzzle piece that was forced to fit! But it didn’t!

    I swear I didnt even know PPL was a thing until BTIOFL! I just thought it was odd transitions to a random product. Now, whenever there’s a PPL or commercial that seems off, I’m reminded of BTIOFL.

      Hahaa. Yeah, that drama taught us lots of things😍
      I can recall the scene where Yoon Doo Joon grabbed that red ginseng product>.< 😀

      but yesterday that scene made me disappointed. It was too much for such a gloomy episode. The timing was wrong.

        or when Yoon Doo Joo took the scooter thing and rode it on the road LOLLL. Every time there’s bad PPL, i think there’s a struggling Jiho behind it!

      So many shows are so uncreative when it comes to their PPL smh.

      I still think that Soo-ji starting a bra company is a stroke of PPL genius.

      2

        I totally agree but still this can not make me feel less disappointed. I mean I expected more from the PD and the writer of this drama. They can advertise as many products as they want but when everything (the story, acting, cinematography, ..) is great, it’s not too much to ask for a better PPL scene. They are capable of it but still they ruin it for us:/
