Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

IU and Park Seo-joon CF! Omg! 💖 I don’t even drink but I’d buy it if they told me to.

    😂 Same.. I was so convinced with the PBG coca-cola ads, and then the ones with Song Joong Ki + Park Bo Gum eating pizza, and then when BTS sang a song about coconut fried chicken.

    I’m not in too deep, am I? No, not at all..

Get you a man–or woman–who looks lovingly at you even when you’re stuffing your face.

Or in Moon-soo’s case, because you’re stuffing your face… with carrots, specifically.

Excuse my gif dump.

    Where can I find.. any of these boys. any of them. Not even to marry (although that would be wonderful) but to adopt, so I can nag them and make sure they’re hydrated and eating well.

      Ohhhh, you won’t find me disagreeing.

      These 3 are my top male leads along with Nam Se-hee of BTLIOF and Yoon Yoon-jae of AM1997. And maybe Louis, but I wouldn’t want him for myself. He would drive me crazy. Bok-shil is perfect for him, though. I am glad they found each other because no one else could handle them. 😂

        I still have to watch those two! Ah, I’m so glad the semester’s done in 6 weeks, I can have a bit of time to binge stuff before taking summer classes. 😂

        To be honest, I don’t know how I would handle all these sons (or. potential husbands) in real life. 😂 There are certain ones that might drive me insane… Maybe for realism I should become their grandma so I can still dote on them without having to constantly deal.

        One of the reasons I have so many sons is, I’m pretty sure I would actually marry more boys, but they are just so darn cute with their ladies that I feel guilty wanting them for my own. 😂

This show is basically my ideal fantasy. Meeting and falling in love because of a mutual love for cats.

I NEED this to happen to me someone please make this my reality.

    What a great story! I hope that (wait, aren’t you already getting married?) happens to you. 🙂

    I definitely have to convince my friend to watch Imaginary Cat, she would absolutely die at the premise. 😂 I love cats too, but her? I’m surprised that I rank #4th in her heart (she’s given me a list) considering she has several cats and a very wonderful mom.

      Right! Yes! I’m getting married and that’s exactly how we met! Se-hee loves cats and I’m sure LMK at least likes them since he had to work with them. Also, he looks like a cat.

      Bok-gil is my 2nd fave drama kitty after Kitty from BTLIOF.

      Omg I can’t believe your friend actually gave you a list 😂 Definitely watch it with her, she’d love it!

This is what I’m gonna tell my mom from now on when she asks about my dating life.

Just replace “woman” with “man” and “Bok Gil” with the name of my cat.

    I’m still too scared to watch it. I can barely handle him with objects shaped like cats. this drama is potentially lethal. sweet cyanide.

      Honestly, I love Yoo Seung-ho but not nearly as much as you (does anyone? Maybe Chae Soo-bin?) and I’m afraid I’m gonna have a heart attack whenever he has scenes with the cat so I really do think you will die.

        to be fair, I’m much better now than 2 moths ago, but I would die for him. and kill.

      Thank you kindly. I’m just grateful that this show isn’t making me rewatch multiple times a week and intruding my thoughts while I’m trying to live my life. I could afford that while BTLIOF was airing. I cannot afford that now.

    Be careful there, Alligator is about to fall off!

    Not to worry mindy. I don’t think APAD will take us to the brain-freezing levels of analysis we got to in BTIOFL, which for me had too much social commentary in the end. APAD has a more simple agenda and is mainly interested in how human nature works, which makes for an easier watch.

    2

      See, it’s not the level of analysis that has me worried. My Ajusshi‘s recaps have a good deal of very insightful comments but I’m fine just casually scrolling through the recaps once.

      There are just some recap “atmospheres” that make me want to constantly refresh the the page to read new comments, even if it’s a simple show. I can’t help it! It turns into a compulsion! This show’s recaps have the same party atmosphere as BTLIOF and it’s making me come back for more and more and more already!

This is one of my favorite IU songs, even though it’s a cover.

Sometimes I sit and stare out at the lake while listening to this song and have a bit of a movie moment—or should I say drama moment?

On Wednesdays and Thursdays, my heart fills with so much love for IU that I think it might burst. I’m so proud of how she has transformed herself for this role.

Thank you for a beautiful person, in more ways than one. 💖

    Dude, the struggle is real. I am 90% sure I’m either gonna pass out or start singing Hamilton out loud in court today I’m so tired. I’m pretty much mainlining coffee right now. Chicago, I love you, but please please please stop with this weather.

        I’ma quote my mother on this one:

        “It’s the best play I’ve ever seen.”

        For context she’s saw the revival of The King and I with Yul Brenner in 1980 and she took me and my brother to see Waiting for Godot with Ian Mckellen and Patrick Stewart during it’s original run on the West End in 2009. So…high standards.

        I’m 100% going to try to see it again. And again.

This scene was very difficult for me to watch, but also strangely therapeutic. I’ve had a lot of pent-up frustration lately, but living with people and sharing a room makes it hard to let it all out privately. It’s been weighing on me heavily and it can be suffocating, and I’m glad that at least Ji-an had a chance to just have a good cry. It’s been a while since I had one, but I’m sure it’s been much, much longer for her.

Hwaiting, Ji-an.

    Just the gifs are giving me feels. I made a good choice to hold off on this episode until a better (for me) day.

    A good cry is necessary once in awhile, I hope you get some time alone for yourself soon.

      Yes, watching BTLIOF instead was definitely a good choice on your part. This episode is really, really good, but really, really gut-wrenching.

Soon I will need a separate gif folder for Lee Min-ki Staring Incredulously at Food.

Seriously, he looks like he doesn’t know what food is or what to do with it. Is he a robot or something?! Is that why Kang Tae-bong is so perfect?! Yes, humans like him definitely don’t exist.

I’m a bit confused by the changes they’ll be making to The Beauty Inside‘s drama remake, and I’m confused as to how long Seo Hyun-jin (or whoever takes the role offered to her) would be on it considering the fact that the female character is the one who is supposed to change in appearance (although apparently not every day in this version). But I do like the idea of switching which one changes, because while beauty standards hurt everyone, it’s no secret that women are judged more harshly and more often for their appearances. Seeing a female character wrestle with having this “problem” could potentially be very interesting. I think the drama could flesh out a lot of the ideas the movie suggested at if done right.

The movie was sweet and hopefully the drama will be too, with some added depth. I’ll be checking it out even if LMK doesn’t accept.

Will Han Hyo-joo cameo? She has to, right?!

    Ditto. I’m trying to wrap my head around it, but doesn’t make sense. I’m intrigued and going in with a sense of hope.

      It was a good concept for a movie… but for a drama? It’s different to imagine how it will play out. I read that she’s not going to change her appearance every day but some events trigger those changes. Well, let’s cross fingers it’s going to be good! I like both potential leads.

      3

        I remember reading a YA book once called “Cycler” (it’s pretty bad, I don’t recommend it), but the premise was that a girl turned into a boy every time she got her period, or what would have been her period if she weren’t a boy. It was my first thought when I read that premise! 🤣

        3
        2

          LOL. Well, that would be interesting.

          I do hope that this remake keeps the idea that the character can also change into the opposite gender.

          I’m not seeing any downsides to that. Be a boy rather than hating all boys during my period…

        Yeah, I’m skeptical as to how such a gimmick-y sort of concept could be stretched out for a full drama, but I’m keeping an open mind. It’s gonna be on JTBC, too, and their shows have been really solid lately.

        The writer doesn’t seem to have a page on AsianWiki. I wonder what else she has worked on.

        4

    All of the changes are sort of losing what made it such an interesting film. It wasn’t about the gimmick, it was more about the heart. It just seems gimmicky. I remain hopeful though

    1
    1

      Isn’t the only change (besides the gender) the fact that she won’t change appearance every day, but in some other way?

      Honestly, if they’re gonna make a drama version of it, I think it makes sense to not have her change every day. Otherwise that would be waaay too many cameos across 16 episodes. I do hope, however, that she changes often enough to make it significant as it was in the movie. There is a lot of potential to explore in a concept like this, things that the movie just touched on. 16 hours could provide plenty of time to explore the themes in a deeper, more interesting way. But I’m not expecting this drama to do that. Just hoping. 😅 Maybe I should write this drama LOL.
