Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

The World of the Married!
Wow! Just wow!
My jaw dropped! I started watching it last night. Finished the third ep at 3 a.m and after that I wasn’t able to sleep!
I started it knowing I’m gonna see a husband cheat on his wife but what her friends did got me hooked! The worst nightmare..

How on earth is their acting this good?! Outstanding!

Dear Park Hae Joon, you broke my heart in My Ahjussi for not accepting Jung Hee’s love and here.. oh here…

And dear Kim Young Min, how many times are you gonna go to a hotel n wait for somebody else’s wife to come?! Oh boy go back to North Korea and secretly take care of Captain Ri when he comes back from Switzerland!

      Are you sure you want to know? Because that was such a jaw-dropping moment! And it is at the end if episode one so you don’t need to wait long..
      But if you still want, I’ll tell you..

      Ok I think I should tell you..
      The FL finds another cell phone in a backpack hidden in her husband’s car and when she goes to the gallery there are pictures of her best friend and her husband which are her neighbors as well, hanging out with the ML and his mistress! Drinking and laughing and having fun..
      And when she goes to the messages, she sees there are msgs from her another best friend telling the ML to be careful because your wife is suspicious..
      Those friends were the ones when she was suspicious told her she is overthinking!
      The woman was living a lie and betrayed by everyone around her..

          Haha I know the feeling! I was frustrated as hell n my blood was boiling! Those bitches are failures in their marriages and jealous of her life..
          That’s a good idea to postpone watching it! You can start when you are ready to see how disgusting people can be and you won’t have to wait for weeks to see how the FL takes revenge!

    But how exactly did they plan to hide his mother’s death from him?

    To repeat something I said in another context and in relation to a different drama: Same, girl, same.

    Honestly, I have my complaints about Jung Hae-in – I’ve been complaining for weeks about his choice of dramas – but I don’t think anybody thinks this guy isn’t (to quote my mom in a totally embarrassing and unrelated context) a hot pancake. If there is such a person, let that person come forth and be judged. (Joking, obviously.)

I wasn’t going to watch Welcome not because of all the things I read about it, calling it creepy but because of L! I don’t dislike his acting but it never made me wait for his next project!

But as a cat lover I couldn’t resist! And I really enjoyed! I don’t care about Lee Jae Sun n why he is behaving like this, the cat is all I want to see( both!:)) )and tbh L was a great choice! He makes me smile..
Speaking about being a cat lover, I’d like to share pictures of my cat who isn’t actually my cat but I wish she was:))
This is Queena! She has been coming to our yard since three years ago n I’ve been feeding, loving, n talking to her since then. I am dying to have her as my own pet but she was born free and I can’t do that to her.
I cook for her n feed her several times a day n she spends the whole day(except the time she goes wandering in the neighborhood) basking in our yard while I sit next to her and tell her all the good things I know, talking to her as she is my child.

I finished Live! Fantastic but I know I’ll never rewatch it!
I didn’t cry as much as I expected! Instead, I found myself helpless! Tired of seeing a****les saying” Do you know who I am?? Kneel and apologize!”
The combination of anger and sadness made me feel uneasy the whole time! Crime is not for me! I can’t get used to seeing people suffer from violence, poverty, rape, injustice,.. The real world is scary but I watch dramas to feel good not shattered..
On the other hand, I’ve watched almost all rom-coms and now if I want something good I just have crime n mysteries! Poor my heart!
Time to stop watching dramas for a while!

    Well, you might be crying quite a lot during this one! It pulled at my heartstrings every episode, but it was a really good and mostly satisfying watch.
    2018 was one of the greatest drama year (imo), but LIVE is so PAINFULLY underrated. It got eclipsed by other dramas that year, but it is so very worth it.
    Enjoyyyyyyy!

      Yes, that was the year with My Adjusshi, Life and many others that Live didn’t get the wide accolades it deserved from the international audience. But it did garner many awards within Korea.

      A well-written, directed and acted piece all around and great ensemble piece with strong main and side characters.

This scene and the way he was crying was very difficult to watch!
That’s how I cry when something really really sad happens! I’m too weak to stand/sit and cry..
It brought back the saddest memory of my life when my ex told me he had leukemia! I was crying like this the whole night till I almost passed out..

What in God’s name was I doing all this time that made me find this gem this late?! I started watching Prison Playbook and finished it in three days!
I’m super sensitive and I knew there would be many emotional scenes in the prison that would make me feel uneasy so I just kept pushing it away but I finally decided to try! I watched n cried n continued watching!

I have lots of things in my mind but I just wanna say seeing there are only 2 recaps broke my heart to pieces!

I wanted to read about ep.15 when Looney stepped out of the gate! I wanted to see how others managed to take that scene because I am going CRAZY! I just want to go to a remote place and scream from the bottom of my lungs! I wanna scream WHY!
I’ve watched more than 150 kdramas and that scene, the thing my eyes refused to believe, was the saddest, the most disappointing, the most heartbreaking one that I have ever watched! In the future nothing can surprise me, nothing can let me down.. I’ve seen the border!

In my country wherever you go you can see billboards saying ” addiction is a sickness and addicts should be considered patients not criminals! Don’t treat them like they can’t go back”. And I was looking at him like a patient the whole time! He could go back! He had what he needed..
That ring…
I can’t stop feeling awful!

    I rewatched this drama this week… and it brought back pain. I remember Beanies were furious with Loony’s ending, I was too. Realistic as it was, it’s still a drama so why can’t we —-!

    Check out Lee Kyu-hyung singing to ease the pain, he starts singing @1:04

    I’m still wrecked about that. I don’t think I can ever get over it. There’s a certain pang of pain I feel whenever I look at Lee Kyu-hyung, doesn’t matter what drama he’s in, it just hurts.

      True but motivation and emotional support are the keys! The fact that the people you love still care about you.. the love of his life visiting him till the end wan’t enough but he was all he had:( I still blame his mother and I hated her even after she showed up in the restaurant, nothing can erase the past!
      The thing that bothers me the most is the whole waiting guy outside the prison in car while the police is hidden somewhere! What the h was that and why? Was it a kind of revenge?! Who was he? Maybe I missed something important in the flashbacks
      Sigh

    I like to believe that this time his mom bailed him out because he needs a rehabilitation center not imprisonment!!

      Omg no! That would make everything worse:(( he was going to get help after getting out of the jail as he promised his squad but being taken like that is….
      At first I thought it was his boyfriend because he said he had a present for him and he wanted to make sure he is clean but then he opened his fist and there was a ring… That was the moment I lost!

      When I watched it a couple of months ago, I checked the DB pages, and discovered it had a shockingly low number of comments. Considering how well-received it was, I fail to understand why. I would do a group rewatch any day, if Beanies are up for it!

        Actually it was chosen as the best drama of 2018 by Dramabeans team and Beanies in two different polls and also it was number one in these categories:
        Best directing, favorite character (Ji An), favorite porcupine( Ji An), the (suffering) that glued you to the screen “:(“
        And second/third in:
        Best squad, best PPL, most dysfunctional relationship

        I know you said about the number of comments and you are right! It deserved more!
        But I guess everybody did well! Even now that I’m rewatching it for the fifth time I still read the recaps and enjoy what each Beanie had commented under each of them! They always open new doors to each scene and make the joy double!

It is the first day of spring and the new year day in my country! It’s called Norouz.
In Norouz, we set the table and use seven specific kind of food and objects that start with “s” and we call it هفت سین which means seven S! Seven is a holy number from our ancients.
Each of these (seven s) represents something such as health, wealth, love, eternity, freshness, wisdom and happiness.
There are also water, mirror, colored eggs, sprouts and gold fish!
We visit our elders and get money. The celebration lasts 13 days!
I know I’m the only Persian here but I felt like sharing this day🌸
Happy Norouz🌿

    These look lovely. I hope you are having a happy and safe one!

    Full Disclosure: I’m not Persian (though I have lot of Persian ancestry many generations back) but I know a lot of Persians and my mother and her sisters all have Persian names.

    1

      Thank you very much💜
      This year we couldn’t visit our relatives and friends so we were at home busy calling each other since morning and it was kinda sad but safety is above all!
      Aww, that’s very interesting😍 and here I am, a Persian girl with a non Persian name:)))

      1

        That’s hard. I hope everything gets better soon – I visited once, a very long time ago, and it is a beautiful country and one of the most memorable trips I’ve taken. I can’t imagine how hard it is to be stuck inside on a holiday that encourages community and family. But at least you are all being safe, and that’s most important. There will always be the next one.

        My mother says that when she and her sisters were born Persian names were popular, so there are a lot of Persian names in that generation. But my mother also got the Persian genes (she has very light skin and green eyes), so it works for her.

        1
        1

          It’s very hard but as you said there will always be the next one and nothing is as important as health💚

          Haha, actually I never knew Persian names were used in other countries before you said^^

          Unfortunately these days people here tend to call their children strange names which have no meanings just because they rhyme! I know people are free to do whatever they want but our names used to have beautiful meanings in the past! We mostly used names that were related to nature and shared a story! for example my mom’s name is Mahrokh which means a person who has a face as beautiful as the moon.. But it’s all about preferences and I’m no one to talk☺️
          Anyway, thank you for sharing, it was very interesting for me🥰

            I love your mother’s name! And I actually know one or two people with that name. My mother’s name is Niloufer, which I love but she doesn’t use it much. It’s a bit of a mouthful for most people and she grew up with a much simpler nickname, which, interestingly is also Persian in origin.

            I think Persian names were and are used in Northern India where my parents are from because as Muslims there aren’t many local names they can draw from that aren’t related to Hinduism. As a result many Indian Muslims use Persian or Arabic names (my brother and I have Arabic names, as do my dad and his siblings). Persian names are used because Persian were the ones who brought Islam to the region.

            I’m always interested in names and how they travel and evolve. I think names are fascinating and it’s really interesting that you said people are coming up with new names where you are. I wonder if they’ll take on new meanings of their own.

    I really enjoyed this. That scene in the second pic when he twirls her and stumbles a bit? And he laughs and hugs her? I think it was something they just kept in, but I want to see more of that with this actor, not that I didnt like his devil doctor self, lol.

I was about to believe all jdramas are like that after trying to watch Coffee n Vanilla, Rich Man Poor Man, and some other that I don’t remember..
I guess I needed somebody to tell me what to watch!

            Seconding Nigeru wa Haji, also adding Suki na Hito ga Iru Koto which is super cute and fluffy. Boku Unmei no Hito Desu is also very cute and quirky and definitely not your typical rom-com.

            Also, Todome no Kiss is definitely a bit different if you want something a bit more black comedy.

My sister called me in the morning and said “ there will be no CLOY tonight! What am I going to do? I feel empty” and it made me laugh!
I remember the time I was trying to make her interested in Kdramas and she was like “ No! Thank you! I don’t have time for this kinda thing”:))

I told her If somebody ever ask me what the most romantic line I have ever heard in a movie is, I would say “ DON’T RUN”!
And she said omg, I’d say the same! I hardly ever cry but that scene made me sob like crazy!
