Beanie level: Eunuch in drag

His cuteness is beyond this world!
I started for Kong Hyo-jin but damn! Kang Ha-neul is all I want to see.
And god, his forehead gave me life!

Kinda late but I need a drama with these two in it! I wanna see how their reunion in Casablanca went!

    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.

And here I am, screaminggggg

I thought they weren’t going to give us a kiss but damn! My heart!
The kiss was followed by:
“I love you”
“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.

    3
    1

      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!

    i’m liking it but only because i watched it thinking it would be REALLY bad. It is bad, but the kind of bad i still find enjoyable.

      Hah, was I the only one thinking about it being so damn good only by looking at its poster?!

        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🙊

          0
          1

            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.

Dear crazy July, what a month you are!

Hearing about Namgoong Min, Jang Hyuk,
Yoo Yeon-seok, Jo In Sung, and now Lee Sun Kyun’s comeback made me fall in love with you!
Now give some Gong Yoo please!

Married people falling in love with married people…
Showing the ring on their fingers repeatedly to magnify the sin..

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!

I just simply adore you two. The acting is fire!
Rewatching MA for the fourth time and GOD, I can’t get enough of it! It just heals my wounds! I live for every single scene of it. It has what I have always been looking for in dramas n movies. Ordinary people, wearing ordinary clothes trying to survive.

I’m gonna have a 나의 아저씨 tattoo on my chest.

      For years I have been waiting for a drama to name when people asked me “ you have been watching kdramas for a decade, what’s your fav?”.. I was always so unsure naming the ones I enjoyed but then MA came along and now I say its name proudly and say this drama defines me!

My sister once asked why I like Gong Yoo so much?
I said:
Once I was watching one of his fan meetings, he was holding a microphone talking to the crowd and then suddenly he started crying! They weren’t tears of joy..

It broke my heart in a strange way! I was sitting there looking at a grown-up man crying and saying “I’m under a lot of pressure”. It just happened to me to look at him in a different way! A man, loved by so many, successful, rich, yet broken inside. Like many other.
I fell in love with him and promised myself if, if, if in a crazy world, I ever happen to be at the same public place with him passing (like an airport), I would never touch my phone, I would never try to take pic, I would never shout his name, I would never stop and stare, I would never be one of those who made him cry..

Happy birthday man, wish you peace💙

    I agree – especially about Ga-kyeong and her husband. They have so much unspoken feelings for each other – he may be the son of a tyrant, but I think he IS a decent man and loves his wife.

      Those two are my fav. The hidden love under those glances, faded smiles and short conversations makes my hear melt. They show their feelings through their actions. And yes, he IS a good man in love with his wife.

Dear Beanies,
I’m free for almost two weeks and I don’t know what I should watch! I just rewatched BTIMFL for the third time and enjoyed like the first day. But Se-hee sshi and Ji-ho sshi couldn’t stay with me longer.
Do you have any recommendations? I’m open to all genres except crime and adolescence(nothing in school please:)) ). Old dramas are fine too.

Or
Maybe it was better to say” I’d love to know your top five dramas” because I think I’m ready to explore and open doors to Beanies’ loved dramas.💜

38

    I usually browse other beanies’ My Shows” pages for ideas hehe. I’ve included favourites in mine.

    The “Ratings” pages may also help (under Recaps). I sometimes disagree but they’re a good guide. I miss Javabeans and girlfriday’s mini reviews.

    5
    1

      Oh thanks but believe me, I have done more! I have like ten open tabs and tried reading Editors’ Picks( year in review) of every single year including the comments on those posts to see what Beanies really enjoyed each year but it is very difficult to choose so I came up with “what are your top five?” question for my impatient heart😂
      I miss them too. I still even listen to their podcasts every now and then. Reading those old Year in Reviews makes me want to go back to those golden years on DB.

      1
      1

        In that case:
        – Misaeng
        – School 2013 (it’s about the teachers as well)
        – Flower Boy Next Door
        – Gaksital
        – Chief Kim

        For your fashion research: you might enjoy Doctors. I got bored but Park Shin Hye had some great outfits.

    My top five:
    Scent of a Woman
    Wild romance
    Accidental couple
    Chief Kim
    Jealousy Incarnate

    The first 3 haven’t changed in 7 years. The last two change every few years.

      Thank you, very helpful

      SOAW.. as a huge fan of Kim Sun ah I cried a river seeing her in that drama but the thing I learned from that story was “hope” and I loved it..
      Wild Romance? I have never heard its name and omg now I’m excited! 😱🙊When I hear new names on “top fav dramas list” I feel like I have found a box that opening it might change my life:))
      AC.. my fav. Hwang Jung-min is a legend.

      I love when people stick to the same dramas for years. It shows how good those were
      CK and JI are hilarious 😍

      1

        I think I need to warn you that most beanies disliked Wild Romance. And that the proper title should have been Wild Love. And that I never ever get tired of it in spite of having rewatched it over a hundred times. And that I should probably stop now 😂

    I love Story or A Man aka The Slingshot (2009).
    Lately I’ve been wanting to rewatch Poldark (BBC series). But I will avoid dramabeans later this year, so I’m gonna save Poldark for that time.

      I just checked The Slingshot out and I loved what I saw. 2000s is my fave decade and most of my favorites were made back then.

      I’ve always wanted to watch HOAS because I love Lee Beom-soo

      Five new dramas on my watch list🎉

      1
      1

    Healer, Just Between Lovers, My Ajusshi, Matrimonial Chaos, Mother (even darker than My Ajusshi so be prepared).

    The one I rewatch the most often though is Mary Stayed Out All Night (Marry Me Mary) because I have a soft spot for the zaniness and the ending (and Kim Jae Wook) even though the drama as a whole is uneven and includes the worst noble idiocy. Did I mention Kim Jae Wook? He’s badly used as the second lead.

    If you don’t ship any couple too hard in A Poem A Day you’ll survive just fine. Yes, I’m still bitter.

      Aww interesting. Based on your cover I’d always thought JBL is your number one and now I see it’s Healer🤔☺️

      I have Mary Stayed Out All Night on DVDs and last week I gave it to my sister to watch. I barely remember the story. All I can recall is a scene in the park and well, the OST. Guess I need a rewatch for Ryan Gold’s sake.
