Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

Just Dance Ep 5/6

Ouch, that stung. After finally coming out (a little) of the cynical world and choosing to give love a shot, this happens.
The contrast to her world and Kwong Seung-Cha’s could not have been more glaring.

This show hurts so bad, but its so good!

Am routing for you Kim Si Eun!! Fighting!

    This drama IS SO DARN GOOD. I LOVE our female lead and Seung Cha is a ball of sunshine. I loved the little inside they gave us on the other girls too and I hope to see more of their lives. I also appreciate the different songs they put in the drama… waiting for an OST to be released….

MoA, Ep 4:
Oh crap! Oh my.. speechless.. Did not see that coming..
It’s gotten Dark, so dark in just 4 episodes.

Am absolutely loving Hyun Bin in this role. He treads that ‘grey’ space so effortlessly and comes out likable. And with looks like that he can get away with anything.
Come take my phone, my PC, my server Hyun Bin – its all yours.

    I’ve fallen in love with Ep 3 TT_______TT So mind blowing. I want to talk about it so bad, but I don’t know where to start.

    And darn Ep 4. fml, my mind got so messed up too (mess is the light way of putting it) – I can totally related to Jin Woo in the Ep 5 preview when he freaked and yelled ‘don’t open the door’. like that was so me when he opened the door tonight after thunder rumbled. I didn’t know what was on the other side of the door, but I freaked anyways!

      I have to watch again. I have been tracking the blood stains (game or not in game) and now its not there anymore.

      I don’t watch previews so not sure what’s coming my way.

      I think the show is leaving clues all over the place. e.g. Jin Woo asking her not to give her phone to anyone. Am positive the phone holds something important!

Matrimonial Chaos -The Finale!

Such a gem of a show. Once in a while a drama comes in and brings you delight, joy, wisdom and profound insights – and matrimonial chaos was exactly that.
I laughed, teared up and contemplated.

This is the most beautiful marriage I have seen in dramaland. It was fun, personal, genuine and meaningful.

I am going to miss this show. I am going to miss these 4 (and plus little one!). Definitely see myself doing a rewatch in a few months.

I really wish this show had gotten more love, it truly deserved it. Am glad I picked it up, for I trust in Bae Do Na.

p.s.I realized that I may be the triangle in my marriage & there is definitely a Seok-Moo in me, but I cannot pull off any cool hairdo’s like him! (how adorable was he post his Italy trip)

    That post Italy hair (and hand moves to slick it back)! I think I’d rather be the circle, but maybe I’m a combo of both. I know I’ll rewatch it to see what I missed the first time. It’s a gem.

    I think I am definitely the triangle in my marriage. The last episode with the cloths, I can seriously relate to him so much on that! LOL

    I will definitely miss this show. Great conversations and all the feels!

And, I finally finished ’Chicago Typewriter’. For some strange reason I had watched till Ep 13 and did not finish it. Finally completed it.
Really liked this show. Am already a big fan of ‘Yoo Ah-In’ and absolutely loved him in this show. (I still think Secret Affair is one of his finest performances).

Like all beanies, am totally in love with his looks from the pre-independence era. Loved the artwork, the set, the production etc of the pre-independence era.
And how gorgeous was the present-day-writers room!

Also, I liked the reference to time/memory which was done with a shot of the Dali’s clock from ‘Persistence of Memory’ (in the first episode).

      The present day was a bit stretched and looked like they weren’t sure how to wrap it up. But I did enjoy her revenge in the past. I did not expect her to execute all traitors and go on a rampage in the carpet diem bar.

And I did it!!
I spent an entire 4 days without watching dramas! I took a mini vacation for the Thanksgiving holidays to a beach town (yes yes, its Winter and its cold).
Spent time birdwatching & photographing them (lot of migrating ducks and seabirds!), walking by the beach, reading books and relaxing. It definitely felt good.

Now that am back, am not sure where to start.
I have 4 episodes of HMS, but I know the ending now (I couldn’t resist so came to dramabeans to check). Am not sure if I want to complete it now.
I have 2 episodes of 12 nights to catch up.
I have 2 episodes of Room No 9 left.
I want to start Children of Nobody.

Birds, Trees and animals don’t freak out when they don’t receive love. Do they?

Matrimonial Chaos 25/26

This show! This show just gets to me. The emotions are so real, It makes me revisit my own life plenty of times.

Firstly, I absolutely love SeokMoo – It’s so amusing that he, of all the people, ended up being the mediator, therapist, counsellor for the people around him.
For all his cynical existence, he truly is such a warm soul. How can an animal lover not be a warm soul? He is so lost in his thoughts and clueless in expressing his emotions, but yet he is so perfect in caring for others (in his own convoluted ways).
I love his growth post his divorce. He is seeing things much more clearly now since they are far apart.

HweRoo: Am happy she finally found the confidence to be herself. I love how she is so honest to people yet makes them feel so comfortable in no time.

Yoo Young
I especially loved how SeokMoo called out YooYoung for being the one who did not face reality. As much as she blames Jang Hyun, she was also a party in leading to the current situation. She is really broken right now. With the pregnancy, am sure the hormones are all over the place. I really don’t want her to be alone at this time. Am happy she is reaching out to SeokMoo and finding some friendship with him.

JangHyun: The session with the therapist was so heartbreaking. He needed help. He needed help when he was a child.
Betrayal along with guilt is such a heavy cross to bear at that age. Even if Yoo Young doesn’t accept him, I want him to make peace with himself. I want him to move on and be more honest with himself. I think his first ‘real’ relationship seems to be with SEokMoo. SeokMoo doesn’t judge. He asks him, calls out his mistakes and is sincere.

This episode had some powerful conversations.
> The lunch between SeokMoo and HweRoo. Am glad he snapped at her. She has always been drawing her own conclusions and not letting him process his thoughts nor explain it himself. This is something i noticed from earlier episodes. She is so quick, that she jumps through his thoughts and his half-processed words and draws conclusion. His outburst was totally needed.
> The awkward dinner table – he he. This show puts people together and makes it an amusing yet deep conversation.

I don’t know where this show is going. I really don’t care if people really get back together or get married or remain single. I can completely see all of them being ‘strangers’, yet being a ‘family’. All single yet one big family. A tiny baby being part of a large dysfunctional yet warm family (that can be a part 2 and I will totally watch it!!). I will be perfectly content with that.

    I’d watch that part 2! I’m a little in love with the publisher though so maybe he could have a few cameos as Hwi Roo continues to write and illustrate her books?

    You’re right about Hwi Roo and Seok Moo. I think she processes things at lightning speed while he takes them in and ponders. When he’s hit with something and has to react quickly he tends to whine and react like a child.

    As much as I love the awkward gatherings and especially the awkward dinner, I’d love to see them all find a way to stay together as friends and family. I wonder if Seok Moo is right though, that the two couples will never have that future together with their children? Maybe there’s been too much damage for that to happen if both the couples reunite.

    4
    1

      ha ha.. The publisher was another matur/ no nonsense character. Loved his take on accepting thanks and rejection quickly so as to make it less embarrassing for the involved parties.

      I think the problem is neither couple has communicated with each other, been open and honest to each other.
      Right now they are in the ‘realising the problem’ and ‘understanding ones’ own inner struggles ‘ phase. At this point, no one has the maturity to think about the future or how to go about fixing the problem. Only time can get them there. Or sometimes life’s events. They are not ready.
      The way he spoke about the camping trip that will never happen broke my heart.

      SeokMoo still hasn’t internalised WHY he doesn’t want children. This, in my opinion, is what will stop HweRoo from going back to him. She is a kid’s person. She needs children to make her life complete. She finds joy in interacting with them. How much ever she loves him, she should not give up on her dreams to have kids.
      SeokMoo grew up in a family where he did not receive love (not in the way he needed it as a child). You can clearly see how detached he is from his parents and even his sister.
      He views everything through that prism.
      He doesn’t realise his potential that he can be a wonderful father. He will be a much better father (come on, he is taking are of jang Hyun!!) than his father ever was.
      But again, if he still doesn’t want to have children, he should not have one. I perfectly understand why some people don’t want children (like me!!). He will be an excellent ‘godfather’ to any kid out there!

      4
      1

        The one thing I do appreciate about Suk moo is that he knew of his childhood that he did not want to bring a child into this world knowing what is to come.

        Not everyone who had not great to down right horrible childhoods want to repeat to another human of their creation. Not all of them think that they will be the totally opposite of how they were raised with their own children.

    There aren’t many dramas that make me want to inhabit them, but this is one that does. I’d love to live in their neighborhood and be part of the group that gathers at the grandmother’s cafe.

    I haven’t watched this episode yet but I recall a couple of open thread’s ago I mentioned that Jang-hyun in particular was in need of professional help. Honestly, on some level they all do. I’m glad to know Jang-hyun had an opportunity to speak with a therapist.

    This is such a good show ….. and I really need to find the time to get to it!!

    And seeing the wall between Yoo Young and HweRi was quite painful. It felt so powerful when YY struck down on HweRI when she was having a meltdown.
    SeokMoo is right – YY is very volatile and unstable. I wish he saw more of his ‘wife”s struggles too. It’s really sweet that he still addresses as ‘wife’.

100 Million Stars Ep 7/8
**No Japanese version spoilers please**

Holy cow! I did not see this coming. I did not expect the writers to chop off 2 characters in the drama at midpoint. I feel terrible for Seung Ah. She was naive, stupid and self-centered but death is certainly not what she deserved. What’s worse is she was manipulated into believing that she had a chance with MY and thats’ what put her in that car.
In a way am glad the show did not choose to overdo the sympathy part and took Woo-Sang’s life too. It was a terrible thing to do. To drink and drive and probably chose to kill both of them.
Am not sure how MY escaped this without a scratch.

At this point I don’t feel there is any redemption for Kim Moo Young. Why did SIG have to play this role. And why does my heart still feel hope for him. I want to deplore him. Detest him. And am not able to do so wholeheartedly.

Yoo Jin-Kang – Jung So-Min brought life to her character in this episode 8. Phenomenal performance by her.

We are at midpoint and am not sure how the story will move forward. Jin Kook seems to have made up his mind to go for it and not get weighed down by guilt. Am so glad he spoke to his sister and gave her details of his interaction with MY (usually he keeps things to himself). But Jin Kang is going to do something stupid right? She is so vulnerable now. I am scared for her.

      It’s weird that I’m not disgusted by MY? Despite everything I know about him I still find him fascinating and I felt like crying when he got beaten up. My heart is still going to him and I’m just a viewer. What chance does JK have when he decided to make her his?

      But I have to say I found it disturbing when he didn’t show any emotions at all after SA death. I know he didn’t love her but… he dated her for two months and it freaked me out that he was so calm and nonchalant about the whole accident. He didn’t even care if he died… and that’s scary!

      4
      2

        No you are not alone. I think we all feel that he was wronged so badly that he deserves a chance. But after SeungA, am not sure. He showed no remorse.

        He didn’t care if she died, if he died.. He exactly knew what he was doing when he said ‘Don’t get caught’ when she was already speeding in heavy rains. He had to win. He had to see how far Woo-Sang would go. Will he give up or go all the way risking his own life too?.
        This recklessness is dangerous at so many levels.

        3

        The sister’s reaction to Woo Sang’s death was interesting too. Though they have probably been tormenting each other for decades and lost any feelings towards each other years ago.

        2
        2

          yeah. That was not surprising.
          It was surprising to see SeungA’s mom totally devastated. I really hated her all along. But seeing her during her daughters accident and death, made me feel a tad sorry for her. Losing a child is truly a horrible thing.

      He scares me and after SA’s death and his general indifference to it, he needs a therapist! Having no signs of empathy is the marking of dangerous sociopaths- like serial killers! I want Jin Kang to stay away but I also again feel she would be the only one to save him. Knowing it all she is still attracted to him. Why? I don’t know. I would have run away had I been in her shoes.

        SAME.When the drama cut from JK on the ground at SA’s funeral as she’s sobbing her heart out to MY chilling with his friends/coworkers casually eating. I was like–that is one cold, cold man. And I like that they had JK address that later in the ep: why are you so cold? How can you not feel ANYTHING when SA is dead?

        I really didn’t think they were going to kill SA. I thought we were headed down a road with JK being more and more drawn to MY and SA going insane Single White Female on them. She’s the one I feel the most badly for. She was caught up in a power struggle between two guys who didn’t love her and neither thought twice about risking and ultimately ending her life. I wish we had known more about Woo-Sang because it seemed obvious that he didn’t love SA and just didn’t want to lose/lose to MY. But was he always like that? Did he ever love SA? I hope he did at one point. It is just too sad to contemplate otherwise.

        BUT MY ADMITTING that he would have done the same things knowing that two people would die? Was freaking chilling. Someone said earlier on the fanwall that they watch this drama like a horror film–peaking out from behind their fingers. SAME. SAME! I was ready to poke a toe out of RomCom land but I was NOT ready for this.

        3
        2

          SeungA is going to haunt us for the rest of the drama. How is JK going to ever make peace with MY if she knows what exactly he did (sending back the check, writing a note for elopement etc).
          If someone did this to my only friend I would no way be this calm. I would do everything to put that guy behind the bars. period. The writers are going to being a backstory to justify his behaviour – i doubt I will ever forgive him – a young woman is dead.

          0

          I think WS did love SA. He met MY way later so I don’t think it was because he wanted to win against him. I mean of course he did but his target has always been SA. He still wanted her even after she told him she had slept with MY. Him obsessively drinking and following her in that fateful car chase was proof enough. He loved her but she felt trapped.

          How the writers are going to redeem MY I don’t know. He was arrested for the first girls murder but had I been in law enforcement I would have arrested him for WS and SA’s death too. He led them on to their deaths, there is no mistake there.

I keep putting you on a higher pedestal after each episode, I can’t! So don’t.

Woo Young: No.. don’t. why? Please.
Don’t be so enigmatic and charismatic.. please don’t. Its hard ok?

Hundred Million stars Ep 5
**No spoilers please – of Ep 6 or original version**

Jin Kook – His rage when he realized that his sister was hurt with intent and inspite of that letting go of the girl due to compassion (For her mental situation), was a great character trait – its going to be hard to see this man break (why do I feel its coming soon!!). JK, don’t break Oppa’s heart!!

Jin Kang – ok, what’s your deal?. Do you feel more compassion for Woo Young because he is an orphan that you are willing to not expose him to your friend Seung-Ah?
Towards the end it was obvious Moo Young lied – because Seung Ah’s version and his did not add up.
MY never told SA that he didn’t love her. He just left. Seeing Ah assumes she hurt his pride.
That right there was a major red flag.
Also, JK seemed to know what SeungAh misunderstood the orphanage nun clothing. But she did not reveal that either (this am OK since its his personal detail and may be she thinks revealing someone as an orphan is not good etiquette. She even refrains from saying so to her brother).
Woo Young told JK that he liked her and asked for a date. Even that did not make JK talk to Seung Ah.
So far, Jin Kang’s attempt to put sense into SEung-Ah seems very feeble.
Seung-Ah has no clue that WooYoung and JK are close enough to be having dinner together or going to work together.

Is it just compassion for a fellow orphan or is there more?

Also, what was the significance of showing her feet (toe raising) when she confronted with her brother about Woo Young. (Minute 27). May be its a little detail that we will get answers to later?

    Or may be he did tell Seung-Ah that he didn’t love her. But she was too in love with him that she misinterpreted that to his hurt pride.
    The more I think, I doubt MY will lie to JK.

      We don’t even know which one of them is saying the truth, for now.
      JK can’t tell Seung Ah about MY because (1) from what we’ve seen so far, SA will just probably make up an excuse for MY (2) This is a relationship about 2 adults, they should be more honest to their selves. Knowing everything about each of them does not give her the right to tell one about the other person.

        Agreed with this. I think Jin-kang knows that Seung-ah stubbornly live in her own nice little bubble. Nothing she said will penetrate because that girl is determined to see things her own way (I can sort of understand it though given that Moo-young is the first choice she made for herself. I guess there’s some degree of willingness from her part to take everything he said at face value because she wanted this to be as perfect as what she dreamed about).

        And also, I don’t think she wanted to meddle in their relationship more than giving Moo-young stern warning or cautioning Seung-ah to take things slowly. As for telling Seung-ah about his real background or about him liking her, Jin-kang must felt that it’s not her place to reveal such information (besides, I don’t think she takes Moo-young’s confession seriously).

        + @gadis @coffeprince4eva

        Some reasons I can think of why Jin Kang feels compassionate towards Woo Young
        1) Jin Kang relates to WY because he is an orphan, is from Haesan and has a scar. She probably is more understanding of his situation because it closely mirrors her life. Albeit one detail. She was extremely fortunate to have Jin Kook as her brother who dotes on her. She sees that WY lacks family/has no one and thereby is unable to dismiss him.
        2) Jin Kang was probably similar to Woo Young when young, during middle school. It was the time she was bullied and went through a lot. May be she was like MY at that point in life. And somehow she pulled herself out of it and learned to look at life positively. She might want to be that person who pulls WY from his darkness and show him that life is wonderful and there are positive things in people/life.

        6
        2

          In all this, I worry Jin Kook is going to find all the ‘circumstantial’ evidence against Woo Young and Jin Kang is going to fight for Woo Young’s innocence.
          We already saw how she was talking to her Oppa defending WY. She might over compensate for her brother’s bias. That wont be nice for the siblings!

        Where I disagree is this: Jin Kang had a chance in the beginning. I know she’s in between a rock and a hard place and while she might not want to meddle with her friend’s relationship, I feel it’s a friend’s duty to tell you these things. If it’s someone you consider a good friend – not an acquaintance or a casual friend but a real, good friend – you shouldn’t be able to watch someone toy with their feelings without saying something to them. When JK saw MY in the cinema with a girl and confronted him, that’s was her chance. From there on, she knew he was iffy about their relationship. Knowing Seung Ah, she’s the type that could end up hating on JK for it but still, I felt that was the time JK had to say something. ‘I saw your boyfriend somewhere with someone else – they looked too cozy to be platonic. Be careful – and I’m sorry if I misunderstood. I just had to tell you’
        Of course, things like these don’t usually go about this easily. It could end up causing a rift between friends but…I’d still tell you.

        I feel the friendship between SEung-Ah and Jin Kang is imbalanced. It’s always Seung-Ah who ‘needs’ JK and JK is there for her.
        Even when JK could have used Seung-Ah’s help to boost her career, she was very reluctant.
        I really want to see how they became friends. And why doesnt JK have other friends of her age?

        5
        1

          Same question re: other friends of jin Kang!! Seriously though. She was slapped by Seung-Ah’s mother, SA did not even apologize and kept asking for help, and yet Jin Kang kept helping her out (why though? I thought that when she and MY were talking at the restaurant, she told MY that that was the last one. Or perhaps Jin Kang is just too nice)

          0
          0

    I think JK is just protective of MY, maybe because of their shared scars, being both orphans? Maybe she didnt tell her friend about MY liking her just to shield her from hurt? Maybe she sees the good in MY even though none of us do? I dont know so many questions my brain hurts…

    I noticed the feet shot too? It seemed odd, so maybe one of her tells? Or just bad editing, lol.

    Its interesting to see how MY is going about discovering if he likes JK. Like he doesn’t recognize the emotion but isn’t turned off by the idea, maybe is even intrigued by it. But almost intrigued in a ” This is something new and not boring to play with”.

    I can’t tell if he was surprised to find what was in his outside can or not.

    Biggest mystery might be why everyone thinks our heroine is not pretty. Maybe this is all misunderstandings based on bad eyesight.

      “Biggest mystery might be why everyone thinks our heroine is not pretty. Maybe this is all misunderstandings based on bad eyesight”
      LOL– yes… no idea.. may be because she does dress-up in the dainty manner? (like Seung-Ah).

      MY – Even when she called him late at night (from hospital) is expression was blank. He wasnt happy or thrilled or even curious. He was just blank/expressionless.

      That’s exactly why I found that sequence jaw dropping. The too casual way he confessed to Jin-kang despite his (what I perceive as) surprise at Yoo-ri’s accussation is something I couldn’t wrap my head around.

    Jin Kook is honestly a really great character till now! And it would really hurt to see him hurt.

    Yeah I feel like Jin Kang questions her own self for why she is doing certain things. She has this inexplicable trust in Moo Young. She keeps expecting him to do “better” while unknowingly she keeps doing what is “bad” according to her own or society’s moral norms.

    It could be her tell? Like she does that when she lies or doesnt disclose the whole truth.

Matrimonial Chaos Ep 3 (5/6)
Wow! Its like suddenly they switched gears! totally loved the episodes. esp Ep 6.
Fav scenes
1. Grandma putting her foot down and differentiating ‘sexual molestation’ vs ‘consensual’ to a cop! Bravo.
2. The 4 characters in the room and the ensuing conversation. It was a RIOT!

I kinda get all the characters except the cheating husband. Whats his deal? Why marry then?

I like how we get to know each character slowly yet surely. I really don’t blame anyone in particular.
Its like we always say – you can’t read people’s mind. So use words!
They all have a different idea of love/romance and may be just ended up with the wrong people or didn’t bother to speak their minds. All of them have plenty of growing up to do as individuals.

2 of them think ‘other people’s happiness can make you happy’, while the other two can’t be happy just because others around them are happy. You have to find happiness from within and from loved ones. Its going to be a fine balance.

    Yoo Young said in passing to Stone (HA !!!!) that her husband doesn’t say no. She mentioned it when she was asked about how they married. She said ‘let’s get married’ and he said yes and they registered their license.

      The way he explained it sounded like it was a sequence of events. He seems to have lost the ability to feel and goes from
      one fact/event to another. She seems to feel a lot but doesn’t say anything.
      I do find some terribly annoying qualities in both of them but I wonder if they ever told each other how much it bothered or affected them?
      Not that I want them to get back to together per say or rooting for them. Am ok with any direction they want to go.

For those of you interested comments from LIZJ is a very interesting read. VRV still has DF content.

    Read the article. The reference to Life was brilliant.

    I believe these niche content companies lose their individuality when acquired by bigger media companies. Not sure if I am losing the correct word but like DF was never the same after being acquired by Warner Bros. Viki seemed to also go a little downhill when Rakuten took over. Some people have also highlighted in koala’s post that Beautytap perhaps bought DB too.

      using the correct word*
      I think niche content should better be the with the people who are more familiar with it.

      agreed. When you work with the local companies/market they bring the right flavors. These big companies look at just the numbers. Dramas like ‘To Jenny’ will never see the light because on paper they don’t sound market-able, while the audience are exactly looking for that.

    This articulates my feelings. Reading through the comments I see it said Netflix picked up a bunch of old dramas. The list is everything that DF had. However, they’re not available in the U.S. I guess Netflix can only show those dramas in places DF didn’t have license for.

I woke up this morning and felt deflated. i don’t have to debate on which show to download on DramaFever to watch it on the train.
May be I can start reading books again?

Now that DramaFever is gone (this breakup is gonna hurt 😢 ), I have no legal ways to watch Terius and 100day prince. That frees up some of my time. Wonder what I should pick up? Am thinking ‘The player’ will be a good easy watch. I started ‘12 nights’ so will continue that. And will also pick up ‘Matrimonial chaos’ which I paused after 2 episodes.
