Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

Before I could enjoy my Eunuch-In-Drag status with Dr Cutie….. I got promoted to Chaebol’s poor doppelganger…. I feel like protesting this with Ariana Grande’s I want it, I got it, I want it I bought it….. Thank god db doesn’t have a shopaholic tag 😆😆😆

I guess I’m a little sad….? But yay? 😕 *scratches head

      Congratulations chingu!

      I think there are many cases of mistaken identities or I pretend to be somebody else ones… Funnily enough the one that popped in my head was Vanessa Hudgens from her 2018 Netflix Christmas flick.

        Ah ah ah I have a contender! She ain’t chaebol put a princess, the FL & her sister from Princess Silver (a cdrama)… I know there’s a kdrama/cdrama with a sister switch in poor & rich family so that could work too 🤔

Oh my god I can\’t believe this! When I was watching Cunning Single Lady on Netflix I commented recently on a what we\’re watching that a better title would be Single Again, & thought to myself a word like sly is better suited, but it\’s actual original title really was \’Sly & Single again\’ !!

      Lmao that was the first thought that popped in my head too! But eh she’s a successful 27 Yr old…. Do we have to be realistic here? 😆

I think if somebody wants to find pictures of eunuch in drag… A cross dressed person, these days cdramaland is giving more options in that department. They look cute or funny or quite convincing.
I’m waiting for Dr Cutie these days, which seems to have a similar set up as Moonlight drawn by clouds, but better story.
Β Β Β Β Β  The FL actually has a legit reason to stay as a eunuch & continue her sham. I think this will be a good one.

    In C-Drama land, love is rarely ever easy. Sigh. It looks interesting enough though. And I liked Moonlight Drawn By Clouds.

      Yeah, but in Palace politics & sageuk romances, love rarely was. Moonlight had a totally unbelievable ending. The only realistic happy enough ending I’d have been able to swallow was if they feigned her death & she lived far away from the capital with king & her separated forever.

      Because her staying alive after being implicated with rebels/traitors? Too much.

EP 10- we now have crossover of celtic mythology (i first thought pagan but then I googled it because I refuse to use terms brainwashed by Christianity) that states that the curtain b/w two worlds thins on some days like eclipses & halloween, so humans can see ghosts & supernatural beings. But even then there’s a glitch because the human guests can only see ghost hotel staff & not the other guests.
When past manager came to see HDL I understand how she could see MW since she’s an undead human, but ghost staff HOW?! Stupid show keeps contradicting itself & making mistakes 🙄

EP 11 HDL are you fucking kidding me? What msg is this stupid show trying to convey? What absolute fucking nonsense is mago 4 spewing? Mago 1 got GCS involved with HDL & MW, how dare that hypocritic sadistic bitch say that?
Mago 1 dragged the innocent man candy, not the FL.

Their gods sure like playing with humans. A human female that was captain of rebel forces obviously killed a lot of people, but so do other human beings like generals, soldiers, kings, assassins etc. But this woman somehow heard rumours of a place Moon Inn that consoles the souls of the dead & seeked it out, carrying around objects of those she killed so that she could atone.
Now this chick that showed more character than people who lived in such times did, was punished to serve the dead for years. Why? Because she had locked up her heart after losing her loved one & thinking she’d been betrayed by another loved one.
Inserting an innocent man into her life & taunting her about his demise, how is that anything else but sadistic?

What purpose does it serve? So what if she’s holding onto resentment & grudge & doesn’t want to let go? So what if she wants to be obliterated rather than reborn? How is this any different from being depressed? She doesn’t want reincarnation because she’s seen the unfairness of life, & the unfair games after death (RE : Cam girl ghost of room 13).
Instead of consoling her soul, (first of all why isn’t she allowed to die in the 1st place? So many people in the world have done what she did & far worse. Why is she a special peach? The show insinuated that MW tried to run away & cross over to the afterlife but wasn’t able to do anything except be tied down to the tree & hotel… ), the gods are going to manipulate events so that she experiences similar agony again?

MW did bad deeds years ago so all her relations have to suffer for it? This is like Confuciansm on steroids
What a fucked up drama. This reminds me very much of Goblin in its hypocritic standards of morality, twisted godhood & ideology about free will & destiny

Trash. Hot trash.

The fashion & the osts are the only good thing about this show. Everything else from writing, directing, costume (wigs! +Sageuk segment get ups), lighting, is bad. They don’t make proper sense.

ᴅʀᴀᴍᴀ α΄…Ιͺᴀʀʏ ᴇɴᴛʀʏ #𝟸
I started watching Beautiful World, Wonderful Life , & even though I started it off with zero expectations after coming across a clip on Kocowa YT, I\’m flabbergasted by the change from Ep 8 to 9. Suddenly everything has changed.

From the drama genre to the direction, lighting, camera, sets, cinematography…. Acting, characters everything.
SOME SPOILERS :-
In ep 8 Junhwi receives his brothers letter 1 yr later & in ep 9 the FL is saying its been 7 years that she\’s failed at the police exam. In ep 9 the ML says he\’ll find her, the girl mentioned in the letter. Am I supposed to believe he waited for 10-11 years to start finding the girl? He received a letter dated August 2009, & it\’s 2020 by the end of ep 9. The time line just does not make sense.
It\’s so so unnatural & illogical.

How am I supposed to watch it with so many changes in which half of the major ones don\’t make sense? They\’ve introduced new characters & have had major developments happen offscreen.
God I feel like bemoaning fiercely about the drop in quality from ep 9 onwards.

Now I\’m off to watch Never Twice/No 2nd Chances : a 30 episoder from mbn with Kwak Dong Yeon. I\’m disappointed that the drama with Kim Jae Young that started off so well (on an unexpected note albeit) turned out this way. Fingers crossed that Never twice fares better🤞✊

    Ugh ugh ugh I’m at ep 19 & now they tell me it’s supposed to be October 2018. So it’s only been 9 years since the death & not 2020 as the banner made it out to be. Maybe I’m dumb & not as observant, but this time I’m going to blame the erratic storytelling rather than my observational skills.
    Ugh the first eight episodes were so good. Mellow, sad with slice of makjang & hints of a tumultuous rom com & melodrama. But now it’s like any other kbs family drama.

So For HDL – I’m going to copy paste mostly & elaborate where needed. A drama diary of sorts.

First things first – 5 minutes into episode 1 & already its failing at logic…She’s dressed in joseon garb… Only her stole flies.
The reeds aint swaying, the dust ain’t flying… Only her stole. How freaking poetic 👏 👏 👏
She keeps saying she’ll slice off the chatty halmoni. But not even a scratch. Dammit why is a barbaric gal so anti actual violence?
ll By the middle of ep 3 but it’s already discarded a bulk of logic. Ep 2 had dialogue – “Nothing in HDL can be explained by human logic” & l had my HA😂😆🤣 moment. In the First episode they showed a shot of ML’s father standing in the balcony as if it was part of the real world. In ep 3 they go that the hotel doesn’t exist in the real world.
Plot Holes Galore :-
1) Aforementioned
2)The FL’s an undead human with powers. How? No explanation.
3) The ghosts can enter a painting & it can be turned into a quasi real place for them to get solace in? What even 🙄
4)The ML leaves his hotel day job during the day to run an errand for the FL w/o any repercussions ,How convenient.
5)The ghost can go from being in the state they died to completely normal looking just by wishing alone? How freaking convenient Gu Chan Sung gets dreams of her (that are shot wrong btw, if he is one of the men why would they show things from a neutral perspective? Poor direction for a dream sequence)
6)They wanted to show that the ML can help in the healing process so the female eyeless ghost gets back normal appearance, but then conveniently that part is forgotten for later ghost guests.
The hotel workers are ghosts, & there’s no explanation for the rules of their change of appearance either. From hair to clothes. They’re still spirits since they can possess, so how can they change their clothes, hair etc? (even with the services the hotel offers, HOW?!)
EP 3-4 : Where’s the linear progression in the story? You have a standard format used in mystery shows, of dealing case by case & then the story in the background moves concurrently with that. But here how does our guy go from being a reluctant worker that fears ghosts to being interested in Man Wol? If curiousity about ghosts, how their world works & Man Wol comes first I’d buy it. They leaped too many steps at once.

By ep 4 their mythology is all over the place.
From Korean fantasy to Greek 3 crones of fate. Like what the actual Fuck. This isn’t fusion, it’s just doing making up anything willy nilly. This is beyond poor writing.

The only thing this bad writing explains is why their moon looks so white, big & bright – because it’s all an illusion of a pretty world. But even that is such a cop out.
I have a feeling I’ll be *tut*ting over this gif a lot 😅

        All I can see is that the readers of Secret might be enjoying the Kyung x Danoh ship that the writer decided to change her storyboard. Sad that the show isn’t showing some comments on the Secret comic unlike in July where we can see that readers actually care for Danoh and Kyung and that’s why they have decent amount of heads/stage lmao.

        Haru might be given a role now but that’s just too early, right!? I haven’t even read the latest chapters of the webtoon (where I believe that will take place) because they are not translated yet. All I have is fear because I am enjoying this show so much.

        1

          Yeah the secret reader comments quelled some of the Qs about why EDHxBK were getting more screen time, but there’s no such thing to fall back on in the drama. It just leads to more Qs.
          I don’t think the drama will answer even half of the questions it raised.

Haru Found by Chance aka Extraordinary You

BK continues to be a jerk, self aware or not, even in the shadows.
From ep 5 – aka 9-10 :-Β 
1)shoves a fellow schoolmate & behaves violently. The 뭘 봐=mwol ba “what are you looking at” was cute when it’s came from KWK in Gogh starry night, here BK’s absolute entitlement is argh.
2) He manhandles EDH even in shadow,even after hearing her cry out it hurts. These are not actions where he’s being puppeteered by the writer, these are his own actions. He’s nothing more than his archetype & that’s the truth.
___ He has flashes of semi decent behaviour (like wrapping tape around Haru’s racket) , but those seem to be for his own benefit than true kindness.

In this episode we have Do Hwa asking the Qs we’ve been asking – Why is EDH the only one different from her personality on stage? Why does DH’s set up not go away? He’s pretty chill off stage, but his like for YJD doesn’t go away.

We also get confirmation that Haru is indeed from a different Manhwa world – ‘Flower’. The recurring theme we all noticed was indeed true. Fairy also showed his villainous colours, I wanted to poke him with a hot object for how he Hurt Haru.

We see the stage scene in Manhwa that was set up to prove that no one was of similar caliber to BK, that he has no one of the same level ; change from having a randomly drawn character & the planned sequence of events to Haru being drawn as Haru & returning the serve. I’m not sure what exactly the changed manhwa scene says, papago wasn’t able to pick up anything. & the manhwa page wasn’t subbed in the drama

    I forgot to mention, how the writer again is very on the nose & obvious with their titles! FLOWER 🌸 – like seriously? At least the drama & original manhwa writing are in sync 😂🙄😂.
    The pages do look mighty fine, since they created them they (channel/drama team) should do a special release as manhwa poster or something like Cdramas do sometimes! When you put in the effort might as well show off to the world! & then we’d have Haru in yet another form…. Not that Rowoon isn’t drool worthy 🤤😍🤩
    Boy even learnt to tease EDH by pretending to take off his shirt in their meet-cute (is that the right term? I don’t think so but it kind of works & applies in this scenario)

    I also loved how they showed us that Haru did indeed start gaining awareness before EDH, but that he came into full consciousness because of her. I’d also like the answer to his question – Why her? Why does he only remember her.

    Dear Drama,
    I was ready to give up on getting answers about awareness & existence & just drink you up as a fantasy high school rom com, but if you continue asking questions through your characters I will have higher meta expectations from you. You better deliver or you’ll lose marks in my final assessment.
    Sincerely,
    An Adoring fangirl.
    -β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-
    Also lets talk about the flashback – Is this like their 3rd time of using flashback? I don’t mind in this instance since they used the scenes to confirm our theories & build a little on it, but still this better not become a recurring device. We already have amnesia coming up, I don’t want to use fast forward for flashbacks galore on top of that.

        YES YES YES. Also, no matter how many times Dohwa says he didn’t change after being aware, he did. He seems like a cheesy and pretty chill character on the stage but he’s paranoid, hilarious, and cute on the shadows. Really glad that my favorite character is asking the real questions!

          Agreed. Manhwa DoHwa is quite flat & cheesy, but shadow DH has freak outs… He’s cute with his emotional outbursts.

            I like the shadow Dohwa more! He fits so well with Danoh and Haru that I’m thinking he’s been hanging out with the wrong people (aka A2) HAHAHAHA

New ost from Extraordinary You. Haru found by chance. Another reinterpreted ost – is this becoming a trend? I don’t really mind it. We’ve always had versions of same osts, but using a 2018 ost for a 2019 drama, that recent is a first.
The only other one I know of is BTOB’s ost for Cinderella & 4 knights that reused & adapted an older drama ost by SuJu,& that one had a difference of good 6 yrs.

The descriptions by vlending screams loud & clear that romance is the endgame for EY
I enjoyed the meta while it lasted. I’m one of the crazy beanies I guess, I since watched raw live stream even with bad buffering & skipped scenes/frames.
So everyone let’s buckle up & get ready for a melodramatic ride… I have a feeling that romantic moments will be sparse… 🤔

Ep 6….#Thaw Me. I will never use that cringey original title. Ew. My pores shudder in cringe if I even think about it.

After 5 episodes, the cringe hasn’t lessened…. But I finally cracked a chuckle at it for the first time.
I’m sure this wasn’t something I was supposed to cackle madly at…. But I always laugh at things I’m not supposed to 🤣😂

The hoobae at GMR’s college…. That super cute guy is her best friend’s (married to her cheat ex) son LMAO.

Oh this is gonna be hilarious 😂😂😂 the combined freak out of the Cutie’s parents will be ⏩ worthy ofc, but maybe just maybe the rant will be funny….. A girl can hope right? 🤔
