Beanie level: Water maid

Finished Stranger/Forest of Secrets last night. An excellent show all the way to the end. Now giving some thought to watching Life, as I’d like to see more Jo Seung Woo. What an excellent actor.

    Jo Seung Woo brought LIFE to the show (pun intended – referring to the actual show LIFE). Watch it!!!

      Interesting, I remember when the show came out all the attention went to Lee Dong Wook. It seemed that it starred Lee Dong Wook and this over guy. 😉

      It’s now on the watch list.

        I have come to the unfortunate realization that I do not think Lee Dong Wook is a good actor. He’s dazzling to look at but in the last 3 shows I’ve seen him in, his beauty (those lips! that build! *swoon*) just wasn’t enough, especially when he’s surrounded be genuine talent. Case in point, LIFE. I re-watched only Jo Seung Woo’s scenes. and would re-watch them again and again.

          It’s always interesting when that sort of realisation hits.

Have just discovered Stranger/Forest of Secrets on Netflix. Wow! I can feel my brain having a workout. I’m really enjoying how narratively dense it is.

Been watching this with my Hubby. He’s enjoying Mi-rae’s struggles, as he’s had his own with body image and weight loss.

Didn’t think it was possible but they’ve gone up a level!

Wondering how do other Beanies post such long posts on their fan wall? Is it possible to get around the word limit?

    Write elsewhere and paste here. Right click and paste. Control V doesn’t work.

Watching Romance is a bonus book, I can’t help but wonder if Eun-ho’s dad is still writing and using his son as cover. 🤔 🤔🤔

Caught up with the last 2 episodes of MotA. Relieved that that didn’t try and give us a happy ending. Great performance from HB.

Was worried that I’d be stuck with the English dialogue in Kingdom. Read here that you could choose subtitles in Netflix. After some investigation, have found you can with the Netflix app.

Finished Iljimae last night and enjoyed the comic book romp that it was. It made me think of The Scarlet Pimpernel, King Lear and pantomime. The sound editor has way too much fun with the fight scenes

On holiday and watching Iljimae. Its a good show to watch while working on my crochet project.

Looking forward to seeing the last two episodes of Mama fairy. After the preview at the end of episode 14, I’m not really expecting a happy ending, unless it’s some sort of vision/dream. Hmm 🤔

Still enjoying Prison Playbook. But wondering about this hair cut. 🤔 is it meant to show how focused his life has been on baseball or is it just and bad hair cut?

Shocked to read about the demise of DramaFever. 😱

Had a cold over the weekend and spent time on the sofa watching Prison Handbook. It’s curious how nothing much seems to happen and yet it feels like everything happened. Puts me in mind of Broadchurch

Very surprised to find Iljimae finally available to watch on Viki. Up to episode 10 and things are getting nicely complicated.

      A cinema here has just started showing Korean movies. Before that they were only shown in the eastern states.
