I seem to be the only beanie who disliked Touch Your Heart, but LOVED Romance is a Bonus Book.

It feels like my definition of sweet and cute is very different from most beanies’. To me RIABB was very sweet and cute even though it dragged a little bit in a few parts.
TYH was very boring and gave me cringey secondhand embarrassment the whole way through.

RIABB had the loveliest ensemble cast I remember after Chief Kim, TYH… well, suffice it to say that the only thing I liked about it was the way LDW portrayed a shy boy, and the manager oppa.

    I honestly don’t mean to slight anyone who loves TYH. I just felt bad that RIABB didn’t recieve the love I felt for it, and as I watched them back to back it kinda came out like this. I apologize if I have iffended anyone.

    LDW and YIN are two of my most favorite actors and I was very surprised and disappointed that I didn’t like their show. On the other hand LJS and LNY were both in my ok-list, and I couldn’t believe how fast I fell for their and all the other characters.

      I haven’t watched RIABB yet, but I think most would agree that there was very little plot in TYH. The biggest cheering section here was for the secondary couple.

    We’re all different and like different things. I’m sure there are others that share your opinion as well (just not me 😉). I’m always heartened when someone else speaks out saying they liked or disliked a show that the majority held the opposite opinion. For me, I liked 20th Century Boy and Girl better than Because This Life is Our First, and both aired about the same time. But most Beanies would disagree.

    Oh, I loved RiaBB—I thought the female lead turned into a mary sue/candy girl towards the end and that irritated me. But, right up until that part I was looking forward to it every week! I didn’t dislike TYH, though. I liked both.

    I have almost dropped TYH… I have been stuck at ep10 since forever but I watched RiaBB live as and when the subs were made available…. I won’t say I loved the show but I did enjoy it more than TYH!

      I don’t think I would have loved it if I had live-watched it either. It is too mild to hold my attention and interest week by week. But it was perfect for watching at my own pace.

    I definitely preferred RIABB over TYH, but that could be because TYH became so incredibly stupid in the legal stuff that I had to stop watching three episodes from the end to keep my sanity. They should’ve stuck to the cute. I’ve ranted enough about this on my wall so I won’t get into it again here.

      I’m glad that I did post about it and discovered the love for RIABB.
