Beanie level: Noble idiot

In the absence of the Name That Drama posts I wrote a lenghty post describing a scene from a drama that I didn’t remember, and while I was writing suddenly Lee Bo-young’s face came into my mind and I remembered the drama I was asking about is I Hear Your Voice! So… problem solved! 😄

Bing-watched Go Back Couple. LOVED it but won’t talk about it because I have read the comments and know that I’m in the minority in WHY I loved the show😁

Question and spoiler in comment.

    At the end of the last episode we see dr Hyun-suk in a restaurant cheating on his wife again. Then he sees Ye-rim.

    Now here is my interpretation on that scene. He looked so absolutely dumb-founded and kept staring at her in such a confused way that I thought he somehow kinda remembered the alternate timeline where she was his wife. He was definitely much more surprised than having only met his ex after nearly 20 years.

    And Ye-rim too, looked much too smug for someone who has just made a brief eye-contact with his boyfriend of two decades ago.

    I LOVED that last slap of karma for the doc soooo much 😁. But then I read the recap and comments and it looks like nobody had that impression except me?

    I loved that show! One of the best and underrated of 2017 (IMO) I didn’t comment much on the recaps since I was busy gushing over Nam-gil on the beanie wall. 😂

Midnight Runners spoilers in the comments.

    WHO said Midnight Runners is funny? Yes, it was funny for maybe a third of its run, but after that it was GUT-WRENCHINGLY heartbreaking!

    Oh my god, it was one of the best movies I have seen in many years but I applaud anyone who has been able to sit through it in a theater. I couldn’t. I had to pause it twice and go outside to breathe.

    It was beautiful, I thank all the beanies who recommended it, but it was heart-breaking. Perhaps I got too much affected because I didn’t expect it at all.

    From the moment that the gang of tugs started hitting and kicking the boys it felt like an awakening call. It suddenly ceased to be funny. I was SCARED! And I think that is exactly what the boys felt and what the movie wanted me to feel. I could feel the two boys’ every heartbeat after that. The scene where the boys practiced and challenged themselves to get stronger was BRILLIANT.

    Ok, I think I will take another stroll outside. I need it.

      I totally agree with you!! I did say it was funny but I stopped there because I didn’t wanna ruin anything for anyone. The movie did deal with darker themes that were hard to watch. It did venture into the creepy alleys to expose the lives of organ traffickers and all the nasty things they do after kidnapping young girls. It was heart-wrenching to watch those girls in pain, along with our heroes trying their damnedest to rescue them.

      But like you said, it was a beautiful movie that was critical of the police force. It allowed our heroes to question their lives (the choices they made) and whether they still wanted to be part of the police. I think what led them to stick with this path was the fact that they cared about those girls in pain. They wanted them rescued.

      Yes it was a story about friendship and bromance. Yes, it was hilarious (for the most part). Yet, it was also a story about strength, endurance, passion and determination. It was a story about two young men wanting to get rid of the criminals. It was about them wanting to save people. Not follow the protocols or the higher officers who turned a blind eye to the situation.

I read a comment somwhere, probably in a Lookout recap, a beanie had asked if anyone knows of a non-romance drama where the two leads have great chemistry without having a loveline.

I suggest Partner. It’s an older legal drama starring Kim Hyun Joo, Lee Dong Wook, and Honey Lee. It has no romance except a small hint at a possible one in the future at the very last minute. But the leads have fantastic chemistry with each other, and most of other casts too.

The cases and stories are simple and to the point, and the plot is kept light and fast. It is one of my favorite dramas. Give it a try one day if you haven’t seen it already. 😊

Watching Weightlifting Fairy for the first time. The amount of second-hand embarrassment in this drama will soon be the death of me! 😥

I haven’t felt the magic people seem to have fallen for yet. At ep 5 I just want to crawl and hide into a hole every 5 minutes.

Seeing lots of Lee Seung Gi in army uniform these past few days had me itching for a King2Hearts rewatch.

Ten minutes into the first episode the main OST starts to play and tears spring to my eyes. This music is burned into my subconscious, analogous to tears and heartbreak.

    And seeing Hyung’s face is the last straw 💔. It wasn’t supposed to be this way, Heart! I first have to watch the funny goofy first episodes. Why are you playing your tricks on me 💔

Seriously, this is the only reasonI regret not live-watching any dramas: not being able to ask questions about trivial off-topic things that people probably won’t remember after the show has ended! Like this one:

Does anybody rememeber Jealousy Incarnate (or care to look up, I’m embarrassed, I promise!) near the end of episode 12 were Jungwon and Hwashin came to Nari’s rooftop for Jungwon’s birthday dinner. The two were singing a song which sounds SO SO familiar to me but for the life of me I can’t remember where I have heard it before. Can anybody help?

    Haha! I’ll always remember Jealousy Incarnate! I actually got the urge to watch it today, since it was airing this time last year. Also, I’m pretty sure this is the great thing about the fanwall.

    As for the song, maybe you heard it on Go Kyung-pyo’s other drama, Reply 1988? Here it is:

I’m not much of a music person, but this month’s theme led me to listen to Fate from Damo. WHAT WAS THAT!! 30 seconds in and I’m strongly tempted to watch the drama immediately!

    Aaaaand I was immediately spoiled with the ending! No, I don’t think I can go through that. But that song… was gorgeous!

I’m loving the More Comments button on the beanies page as much as the more Fan Posts button. It is very satisfying to read intelligent and interesting comments from random posts.

    I love major height differences, it’s very cute. But, as a taller woman, I feel validated when I see couples like this. Hehe

    Ooohhh yay! 😀 Thank you! What drama is this??

    The only one I can think of is the web-drama Hot & Sweet, don’t think I’ve ever seen an ordinary drama with such a small height difference before?

    The fan was dancing? and he found it hilarious. Jung Sang Hoon stopped the fan and said something else (he slurred a bit, and I’m not entirely sure it was in Korean)

      Thanks. 😊

      He is so cool and collected when he is by himself on that stage lol, but in all the videos with Jung Sang Hoon he is laughing. It’s so cute!

    The only thing I completely get is that the first hashtag says Jo Jeong Seok and that the other guy says “Music, please!” at one point lol. Sorry!

      Yes and if you watch a previous video on the same account he even signs them! LOL

      Though I kinda thought maybe it’s something about men’s breast cancer…??

Hi, I need drama suggestions for a friend please! She loves Sweet Spy, City Hunter, and Healer. Can Beanies here suggest similar dramas please? Preferably those that have finished airing. Thank you 😊

    Some action dramas like “Two Weeks” or “Heartless City” and if she wants some romance with it, there is “The K2″…

    Otherwise, in general, I recommend “Pinocchio” and “I Hear Your Voice”

    Holyland (miniseries, only 4 episodes)
    Arang and the Magistrate (more rom-com but with a really great mystical and mystery element)
    I Remember You (Seo In-guk=love)
    Runaway: Plan B (Rain and Daniel Henney, kind of an odd-ball spy/thriller story)

    Me! Me! I talked about it 🙂 Way back when he got a bad rap from Heirs, I kept saying how much I loved him in Nine. He was so cute and boyish here! I remember thinking he had natural talent. I’m so proud that he’s emerging as a fan favorite now!

      Yes! Yes to everything! And he was the only thing I liked in Heirs.

        See, I didn’t really watch Heirs, but I still liked what I saw of him in it, so I was always bummed that most ppl didn’t think much of him.

      I’ve heard a lot about Sirius. Haven’t seen it yet. Looks like I should.

    I thought he was very good in Nine. He was also good in Heirs (though I didn’t realise it was him until recently).
