Beanie level: Loan shark with a heart of gold

Lee Min-ki visited Lee Chung-ah on the set of Beautiful World and Jung So-min liked the photo and I’m just overwhelmed by BTLIOF feelings right now I might be crying it’s fine

Also my dude please choose a new project already I’m dying here

    He looks well-rested and healthy, so it’s time for him to get back to work.

      Exactly!!

      I wonder what he does when he’s not working. He said in an interview recently that his only real hobby is reading.

        Damn. Of course his hobby is reading.

          He’s also said that he’d like to write a book (I have no idea what kind).

          I don’t know about his writing, but I think he’s quite well-spoken. Trying to use a translator, even a good one like Naver’s Papago, to translate his interviews is so frustrating because the sentences are too complex to make any sense and he uses so many metaphors and sayings/proverbs that just don’t seem to translate.

          Or maybe he just doesn’t make any sense in Korean, either… LOL.

          3
          1

            Anyway, this is my way of saying, I wish more fans would properly translate his interviews…

        Lee Min Ki & Yoon Shi Yoon need to become BFFs… I’ve read somewhere that during the duration of the filming of a drama, if it’s not the script that’s in his hands, Yoon Shi Yoon always has some sort of book in his hands and by the time he’s done filming his drama, he would’ve also finished reading 100 books….. The filming of a drama— live-shoot style— is usually 4+ months…

He saves dogs and then he does THIS WHO TOLD THESE WRITERS HOW TO BAIT ME

Anyway, they’re right, kittens are definitely cuter and better than humans.

I started watching Angel’s Last Mission: Love and after the first episode… I think I kind of love it?

Shin Hye-sun is amazing and, while this is obviously a story of the melting heart of a cold chaebol, I really hope she stays this tough yet vulnerable throughout. My eyes were threatening to tear up within the first 10 minutes.

I feel as if this icon makes everything I say sound ten times more elegant and sophisticated than I actually am (I am neither of those things) and instead of seeming like the stressed, obsessive, mentally-12-years-old mess that I truly am, I come across as composed and reasonable.

…please keep any contrary thoughts to yourself don’t dash my dreams this fantasy is the only thing keeping me from running away from this site forever out of pure embarrassment.

Also, everything just seems Right when I have So-min as my avatar and Min-ki as my header.

…I’M NOT OBSESSIVE.

Cough.

I’m a Mature Kind-of Adult who doesn’t spend all of her free time watching video clips of a dumb actor. I have a Job. I do Important Things. I am Sophisticated. My icon proves it to you.

The awesomeness of this song and dance is only topped by the incredible inclusiveness of the music video.

I’m missing SoMinki this Minday, and I realized there was a Because This Life is Our First BTS clip I hadn’t seen yet!

Do yourself a favor and make yourself smile by clicking the sound icon and listening to THE GREATEST LAUGH IN THE HISTORY OF EVER. So-min’s laugh is the actual BEST. I guess Min-ki’s funny or something. Brings joy. Idk.

Soo-bin is so freaking cute. I’m glad she’s active on IG because I miss her on my screen. When will she choose another projects? Why are all of my faves hiding? Are there no good dramas on the horizon?

I have fallen very deeply and suddenly for OH MY GIRL’s Hyojung and I don’t think there is any turning back.

I LOVE this song and the music video is so! Cute! She wrote and composed this song and made the music video all by herself! She’s just so cute and talented, I can’t deal.

#IslandParty2019 is a thing?

A perfect opportunity for me to spam OH MY GIRL.

I’ve honestly loved OMG since the minute they debuted. “Cupid” is still one of my all-time favorite debut songs, but then they grew into an even more impressive group than I imagined. They’re one of the only groups where their songs actually give me chills. They are, to put it simply, magical–even their more upbeat and danceable songs like “Remember Me”. Mimi’s lyrics are so vivid and pure and everything–music video, vocals, instrumentation, lyrics–always blend so perfectly to create something beautiful.

I’m still kicking myself for not seeing them when they came to Chicago a few months ago. I found out the day before and tickets were still available but my friend couldn’t make it and I was nervous to go alone. I was a fool.

I’m going through a slight obsessive phase with them right now.

    What do you think of ‘The Fifth Season? ‘

      I think it’s a wonderful, surprisingly musically complex song that surprised me the whole way through, as most OMG title tracks do. And, as usual, the MV is beautiful.

        They’re just magical, aren’t they? I don’t follow them but every time I see their mvs from beanie posts, they’ve never disappointed me. I think my favorite would have to be ‘Closer’ or some of their bsides.

      Last year during A Poem a Day, people who weren’t involved in the shipping war declared themselves to be on the “Island of Neutrality”, and there was an “island party” where everyone on DB just shared songs! Looks like @waadmay brought it back for 2019!

    I love their magical vibes, beautiful dresses (their live performances are so pretty) and complex songs. I hope they will always keep the same atmosphere and add even more twist to their future releases. A-ing was a surprising track but really great mix of reggae and OMG style.

I’m FINALLY watching kdramas (well, one kdrama) again and I just want to say that my favorite things about Absolute Boyfriend so far are Minah’s expressions and her fluffy hair.

Actual *facepalm* gifs are always a welcome addition to my collection.

I’ve loved Minah since Girl’s Day’s debut and she’s one of my top k-pop biases, but this is my first time seeing her act and I’m really liking her. Maybe I’m biased.

    Yay, Mindy is watching a drama! 😊 I would watch this just for Minah. She’s expressive and natural. I love her husky voice. She was good in Beautiful Gong Shim, until the show decided to ignore her character in the second half 🙄

Mindays are the best days of the week. I don’t work and can spend the whole day doing absolutely nothing! Currently, @bammsie and I are watching I Really Really Like You on Rabbit most Mindays, and will soon follow it with Dal-ja’s Spring.

I’m still stunned that no one thought to call Mondays Mindays during Because This Life is Our First’s run for MIN-ki and So-MIN. What on earth were we thinking?

Anyway, I think it’s high time for it to be tradition (for me, at least) to post Min-ki on Mindays, so… here we go.

I like that this photoshoot promoting a movie titles Very Ordinary Couple is just slightly offbeat and quirky—although, those two words are not at all uncommonly used to describe his photoshoots.

His latest photoshoots have been on the normal side of things, which I also enjoy (of course), but I’d love to see him return to something a bit more unconventional soon. Only he can wear a shiny blue shirt and hold a paper cup in his mouth and make me think it’s… kinda hot? I blame those eyes.

    Offbeat suits him best.

      I agree!

      I’m excited to see what project he chooses next. From what very little we know, his role in the OCN drama he is considering sounds more fiery and intense than his recent roles and that would be a welcome change of pace, I think.

        No boring/predictable rom-coms allowed.

        2
        1

          Please! He basically said he wasn’t going to do another rom-com next so it will be something different. It has been only half a year since TBI so I really shouldn’t be so antsy for something new but I am.

        I might actually watch my first OCN drama if he was in it.

          Right! OCN dramas aren’t usually my jam and I think the only one I even finished was Police Unit 38, but I can’t help but be excited about the idea of this drama anyway lol.

I watched all 5 seasons of Brooklyn 99 in time to join in on season 6. I am almost done with all 9 SEASONS of The Office and the idea of it ending and me having no episodes left waiting for me when I get home makes life a little bit less bearable.

And yet there still isn’t a single drama worth watching. Dramaland needs to get it together!!! I can’t keep living like this!!! I need to be saved!!!

    Completely unrelated, but have you watched Lee Minki’s “Very Ordinary Couple”?

    1
    1

      I have! I watched it soon after BTLIOF aired. Shindy has suggested doing a Rabbit watch of it so that might be happening at some point, I’m not sure. Why do you ask?

      1

        I was curious about it because Seungyoon mentioned how it was while watching that movie that he started thinking of the theme for the title song coming out in the next album.. something about how people deal with breakups and how all the songs are usually sad, melancholy ones…. And how he wanted to change that…

        Anyway that made me wonder what the movie is about…

        2
        1

          Ooooh! That’s interesting. The movie is about a couple in an on-again/off-again relationship. I quite liked the movie overall, but felt that the message the movie was trying to convey was muddled in the last couple of scenes. I wonder how he interpreted it.

          2
          1

            Hmm I guess he just focused on the music playing during the break-up scene rather than the movie as a whole… Because he was talking about the songs of breakup being all sad and stuff… But yep! I am so curious what the final thing will be!

    Have you watched The Good Place? How much gore/violence is in Brooklyn 99? I have low tolerance but I want to watch it.

      Of course I’ve watched TGP! I love everything Mike Schur.

      As for violence in B99, not much? Although a character did literally get stabbed in the back with a knife last week…

I can’t believe there was an entire article on oceans and this scene and the buildup to this kiss wasn’t mentioned a single time.

Anyone who says they were able to draw a single breathe or general function as a normal human being should at all after hearing “What you did at the bus stop wasn’t a kiss” is lying to others and themselves.

    This was the second beach scene that came to mind when I read that article. The first was the Coffee Prince scene…man, that is and was the perfect scene.

I’ve spent most of my life on the internet. Ever since I was a kid I’ve spent too many hours online, chatting to strangers. It’s second nature to me at this point. I’ve made friends from every corner of the web that I’ve frequented. Even though I haven’t kept in contact with most of them, I truly appreciate each and every friendship that people from all over the world gave me. No matter how many friends I made in the past, however, it wasn’t until recently that I found people who made me reevaluate what defines a “friend” without having ever met them in person.

And it just so happens to be one of those people’s birthdays today.

@bammsie, I know we’ve only been friends for about a year now, but I have so much to thank you for.

Thank you for always being so kind and open to everyone who you meet. I’m fairly certain it was you who initiated our conversations when we first began talking, and I’m eternally grateful to it.

Thank you for making me smile at the everyday things in life on a daily basis. Each time you share with me a picture of the latest pastry you baked, or send me a funny picture from a homework assignment you have, or tell me something hilarious your little sister said to you, my day becomes a hundred times brighter.

Thank you for keeping my love for food and cooking alive now that I’m home and get spoiled by my parents making dinner all the time. I still don’t cook as often as I should or would like to, but I’ll get there!

Thank you for always being so willing to join my Rabbit watches and music rooms, even when they are absurdly last-minute. You’ve watched way more than your fair share of LMK dramas and movies for my sake.

On that note, thank you for introducing all of us to Rabbit. I’ve grown so close to so many Beanies thanks to that app, as frustrating as it can be. Especially lately.

Thank you for taking the time to text me every single day, even when I know you’re busy and have better things to do.

Thank you for putting up with me, especially when I’m feeling down. I know that I can be an absolutely exhausting person to deal with and I feel so guilty for dumping so much on you all the time. You’re an angel for not just deleting me from your contacts and blocking me. Whether I’m wallowing in self-loathing or spamming you with nonsense messages about a dumb actor I kind of like, you never run away. That’s amazing.

I honestly don’t think I’ve ever met someone so genuinely kind and warm in my entire life. Thank you so much for existing.

Happy birthday, Bambam 💖💖💖

    Rewind

    I remember that night I just might

    be utterly, utterly grateful for having stumbled upon DB, and then to the fanwall, and found such truly amazing, brilliant, kind, thoughtful people.

    You know me, I dance awkwardly and quote to get my point across – especially when I’m just so completely floored. A part of me wants to be silly and wrap this up with a snarky comment, but I know I can’t.

    Girl, I am so incredibly thankful for you and your heart. I think sometimes that you don’t know quite how big and perceptive it is, but gosh darn it, I do, and it makes me cry. My wish for you is that you can fully believe it some day, and not hate yourself, because you’re rad. And it’s dumb to hate things that are rad. And you’re not dumb.

    I keep saying it, and it’ll keep being true – but I’m just so blessed to have you as a friend, and I’m so thankful that I can say it and believe it.

    Thank you for being so supportive and sweet even when you’re exhausted and emotionally spent.

    Thank you for humoring me when I ramble about my misadventures.

    Thanks for being you. Thanks for being Mindy, the one who I thought was intimidating but really is just an old softie who feels feelings. I have no idea how I’ll ever write anything for your birthday now because it’ll just feel inadequate and I can no longer do the words thing.

    May we all be so lucky. (Waitress)

    P.S. Thanks for making me cry. I just got home and I had to stare at the ceiling for a while because I thought it’d be hard to explain why I had tears rolling down my cheeks.

    P.P.S. My son loves you. He’s a big fan.

    Second – Mindy,you’ve explicitly expressed what Bams has done or does to us, in this very loving birthday post. from the photos shared, and to what nots, Bams just never fails to bring a smile,or a laugh to me.

There should be an app that I can use where if I talk to anyone anywhere about Lee Min-ki more than 5 times in one day then I get locked out of my phone for 24 hours.

However, no one has invented that app yet, so…

One of my favorite things that he does is when he looks down and grins. He’s a chameleon but that little grin is the one thing present in every role of his.

I miss him so much please hurry up and confirm a new project!!!
