Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

Day 6
#MusicMarch

We all develop different tastes as we grow old…. I’m going to share one such change.
When this album The 20/20 Experience part 1 by Justin Timberlake came out, I was more into pop & didn’t care for other songs on the album except Mirror. Now it’s one of my favourite English albums, & Blue Ocean Floor my favourite song by JT.

💙🌊💙

Day 5
#MusicMarch

Music March is shaping up to be a great excuse for me to gush about songs I love.
Today’s pick is Korean artist Xydo… He has a very compelling voice. The best discovery of 2019 for me.

I love his songs Drawing , Spotlight , Raindrop and Abyss ❤️❤️❤️

His voice even made me like Justin Bieber’s Yummy.

Day 4
#MusicMarch

This one is new to me…. But I found parts of it quite relatable.

“Sometimes the wrong things feel so right….
Sometimes the truth’s a lie
So when you ask me how I am I say fine…
So when you ask me how I am I say fine.”

Reminds me of another song I love (just the vibes) – Drake’s Doing It Wrong.

“We live in a generation of, not being in love, and not being together
But we sure make it feel like we’re together
‘Cause we’re scared to see each other with somebody else”

I don’t know exactly where I’m going with this post,but these are a couple of songs I like, that I wanted to share I guess 🤷🏻‍♀️😅

Day 3
#MusicMarch

I love songs with the word ‘dance’, that are about dancing. I just love dancing. It’s one of those things that come instinctively to me… I can’t stay still if there’s a catchy beat out there.

Here are 4 of them :-
1. Shall We Dance by Block B
If this song doesn’t make you wanna dance…. Well are you even listening properly?

2. Dance Dance by Day6
Just the newest addition to my dancing songs. I love the English cover version by Shibuya Sunrise too.

3. Dance Pe Chance from Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
(tl – take a chance on dancing)
This song literally spells out how to move your body, but with a much more relaxed beat. It urges & coaxes the reluctant person to follow simple steps & they’ll find themselves dancing decently. I frankly think this song is genius & can teach dance to total noobs who understand the lyrics.👍👍👍
___ A similar teach you how to dance with its lyrics song is Hoedown Throwdown by Hannah Montana – it mentions the steps to the dance in such a fast paced manner… Now I couldn’t exactly execute them but it’s still fun to try. 😅😆

4. Dance by Eden ft Woodz
I Love😍Love😍Love😍 this song❤️…. It tickles my fancy side, that has whimsies of twirling on the dance floor with a happy partner.

5. And Dance by Louisa Wendorff
Lol this wants you to dance any & all western dance forms you could think of…. Just dance 💃🕺

6. Dancing on Glass By Bumkey
This makes me want to arch my heels & leap & fly across the floor… Such an upbeat & groovy song.

7. Dancing in the Rain by Rad Museum
This is one of my favourite songs… It will make you want to dance in the rain guaranteed.

8. Dancing Jodi from Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
(tl – dancing couple)
I never understood how people could dance to just instrumentals before I heard this piece…. But I can dance to this with eyes closed.

9. Aaja Nachle From Aaja Nachle
(tl – come dance)
I can’t exactly describe how much I enjoy dancing to this song, how the absurd comparisons can make me goof off, but it’s all in good humour with thirakti beats.

10. Dancing Queen by Abba
This needs no introduction…. It makes me feel like a queen, like I own the dance floor.

Honourable mentions to Shut up & dance by Walk the Moon, Slow Dancing in the dark by Joji, Can I have this dance from HSM3, Nach Baliye & Last Dance by Big Bang.

For Day 2 of #MusicMarch
I’m going to share a song Naina Chaar. (literally four eyes – it’s an idiom that means falling in love or facing each other face to face)

At first listen you might think it’s a romantics song due to its hook & pre chorus, about people struggling in love… But I think it’s open to interpretation.

“Woh jo bin bole baatein mann ki kar lete hain”
Those that talk without speaking about what’s in their heart
“Jhoote kisse bhole ban ke ghardh lete hain”
That spread falsehood while pretending to be innocent

“Haanji maan gaye hum hain khoob bure, ye sughad bhale
Fine I’ll accept I’m very bad & they are the good people
“Ye to ardhiyal hain ji patthar pighlavein, ye na pighlein
These are obstinate people, you can melt a stone but not them
———————————————–
These are just a few sentences talking about people, rumours, etc, but this songs lyrics speak to me.
I couldn’t think of a grand presentation to make, so here is a song that I hold close to my heart because I find it relatable.

The beautiful instruments, the raw voice of Kailash Kher & the melodious tang of Shreya ghoshal is all like cherry on top.

I hope beanies like listening to it even if you can’t understand it 😅[ http://www.bollymeaning.com/2014/01/naina-chaar-lyrics-translation-kailash.html?m=1 ]
__Here’s a link with the more conventional meaning, for those interested.

Ah I almost missed the Day 1 of Music March 🎶. It’s still 1st march somewhere in the world, thank God.

To Claire De Lune – you’ll always have a piece of my heart. My faithful companion in sorrow & pain, thank you for easing years of migraines.

People who watched BE MELO , Are directors signed to channels & not production companies?

I’m a bit confused by their whole getting DOP, art director, music director etc bit. who works & signs with whom?

I remember seeing posts from someone who worked in the TV industry – if you see this or remember who it was can you please tag or answer this?
__ Or please give me a frame of reference if you have any idea about how the SK drama industry works 🙇🏻‍♀️🙏

    It differs for every country. There is no set rule. But I do think there is one in SK and from what I gather, Directors definitely belong to the channels (from real life news and also if you want to know more King of Dramas shows the entertainment biz). While I guess the rest are somewhat contract workers, the ones you can hire for that particular show, i don’t think they are stably associated with channel as the directors (PD’s).

      I even articulated how she was a kick ass candy & how she was the character that stole the thunder from the mcs – not just scene stealer but show stealer & how it was the actress’s best performance. I haven’t seen a better Buja 😭

      I went & found gifs for it. 😢😭😢 To support my claims. All gone.

    Buja was the heart of Hwayugi. Her rotting heart was pure, and deserved so much more.

TO NETFLIX,
I thought you were a waste of money for my solo mobile viewing, but thanks to technology & tv & the fascination of exploring something new, my family 👪 watches stuff together now.

We\’re overcoming years of distance & cold wars – feels like forever since TV 🖥️ has been a collective activity.

FIND YOURSELF for being relatable & interesting & funny. You\’re addicting that we leave our dinners & rewind & watch your moments again. Not that useless after all.

From discussions on social etiquette, commonalities among Asian culture, weird clothing to relationships, perceptible women, insecurities to teenage hunger ; all things relatable….

LOVE, February ♥️💕

Lol a character in Be Melo said Xibal but the subs translated as seriously. Where is Netflix cuss-love when you need it.?
It took me 4 episodes to start thoroughly enjoying Be Melo & see what the hype was about. The first two episodes felt quite slow to me.

Be Melo has to have the best promoted ost ever
Shampoo scent in flowers?
Genius

It\’s a tease, a memory, sung so often & inserted so much that it\’s stuck in my head now. No wonder it was in the top charts for so long. (& still is among melon top 100)

The PPLs in this too are integrated so well.

But ahhh their whole writer drama proposal channel thingy…. I\’m pretty sure a kdrama goes to the production company first & gets made & then later its picked up by a channel. Unless the channel is co-producing I don\’t see how they could stick a leg in the production of the drama.

It\’s Feb 4 in my part of the world, but still day 3 for many. I thought for a long time what I could contribute to this, & felt so lost…. But all the posts over the last couple of days gave me an easy answer.

So,
Dear Beanies,
TO ALL OF YOU who share their thoughts and personal stories that light up my days,
To all of you brave enough to share yourselves with the world,
To those who who celebrate various forms of love,
To those who keep up even when you feel no love ,
To all those months you spread love even if there isn\’t a specific day of acknowledgement for it,
For being you,

Love, February ♥💕

        I think it’s based on Mask (2015), a Su Ae drama. You could be Hae Sun of The Crowned Clown. He is a King Doppleganger. Hehehe

      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\’ !!

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.
      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.

        The ending was a not the best, but I liked it overall, mostly. lol
