Beanie level: Noble idiot

This movie…This movie was not great. Has anyone seen it? I really wasn’t expecting that sex/death scene at all. It was the cherry on a pretty terrible sundae

This film made me feel very intense feelings. A true classic

    I loved that film and watched as many of that director’s films I could. Did you see Red Sorghum? Incredibly powerful and sad film.
    These are the shows that got me started with Chinese films back in the 90’s and I never stopped.

      I just finished Red Sorghum but I have to confess i didn’t understand half of it and didn’t enjoy it half as much. I’m making my rounds of Zhang Yimu’s work though and I just love his use of colour and space

        Yes it was an intense film and not the happiest – but like you I was amazed and rapt at his use of color as well.
        Other films of his that I’ve loved are:
        Not One Less
        The Road Home
        The House of Flying Daggers.
        His films are epic and vast. But I LOVED the Road Home and Not One Less.
        Both are sweet and loving and simple and take place in small villages out in the middle of nowhere.
        Those two are my favorite ones of that director.

          I think I watched that one. There was a time when I would go to the video store and look through the section of Chinese video tapes.
          Hah – remember VHS tapes?

            I bought them for far longer than I should have. I got Shanghai Traid in the reduced bin in my old grocery store😁

This has smashed the limit of work wear. I’m officially done.

    I once worked in a retail establishment with a coworker who dressed similar to this. This establishment now has employees where polo shirt with the company logo and black pants.

    What on earth are you watching btw?

      How did they get away with it??? It’s the Brightest Star in the Sky. The romance is slow, the characters get on my last nerve but I’m somehow very engaged.

        This was long long ago, it was a male dominated company, and honestly, and oh wow do I hate remembering this, but she didn’t alway wear anything underneath.

    The writers and the directing might be justifying it because the workplace is an entertainment agency where fashion and image is everything, but yea, I get what you mean and where you’re coming from

      There’s casual and there’s whatever this is. I know c and k dramas flout the rules a lot but this goes beyond the pale.

    I had lots of fun FF-ing this drama (sorry not sorry, Tao Tao), and a lot of it was the office stuff

      I’m just in it for the romance…if it ever happens.

        There’s lots of cute moments from Tao because he’s the one who falls first (Spoiler?? Sorry!!), but the girl is sort of dense XD

    Argh! Don’t cancel Joseon Survival….

    … Just replace him with another actor, or a sock puppets. Yes, I want to see a sock puppet, and I’ve said so before
    http://www.dramabeans.com/members/lordcobol/activity/751865/

    Or, kdrama leads could have understudies like ballet stars.

    Or something. Dammit, this is too much.

      They just need a training session to change actors like in The Last Empress.

      Sock puppets will be the best choice. They are clean, literally, and for sure won’t cause any scandals.

      … unless they face untimely death in the paws of some playful cats

    I’m mad on behalf of the rest of the cast and staff. Especially my girl Park Sewan deserves better than to have her drama stop because of some jerkface.

    I wish they’d just let his character die a horrible death off screen and rewrite sigh.

A Good Question

Is anyone watching Blowing in the Wind? I need someone to rant with. I\’ve never seen a couple argue so much, the second female lead barely needs to do anything

2

    I’m watching it (currently at ep 21) and I think it’s mostly because of the female lead’s attitude problem. She gets mad for I don’t know what reason. I don’t like the second lead girl. She’s selfish, creepy and emotional blackmailer.

    1

      Ikr! She gets mad for almost no reason at all and behaves really weirdly. What’s worse is that her friend keeps telling her she’s acting weirdly as well. There’s no in-universe explanation for it. Xia Di isn’t great himself, he reacts yo her quite stupidly for a man that’s meant to be older. The second lead is the worse, especially how she has a relationship with him on social media that he can’t see. Or bribes his secretary. What’s worse is that she might have a happy ending. Xu Annie is my favourite in all this mess

        I don’t want her to end up with the other guy. He is too good for her and he deserves better. I don’t really care about the main couple at this point lol I’m still watching because I have a soft spot for the lead actor, and yeah Xu Annie too. She and her boyfriend are just adorable together.

          I actually don’t like the other guy as well. Sun LiMing manipulates him way too much. And he is so blind to the crazy that is Fan Ling. Even when she confesses all the crazy things she has been doing

          1
          1

            He’s not a really bad guy. He’s just influenced by Liming and his jealousy over Fan Ling’s one sided love for Xia Di. I was just watching ep 24 and it looks like they will end up together. :/

            I loved THe Eternal Love (both seasons) and I love Zhao Lin & Liang Jie so I’ll definitely watch Fated To Love You just for them. I didn’t watch the original Taiwanese and the Korean remake versions because it’s too angsty for my liking but I really cannot not watch this new version. I just love the leads. ^^

          Are you going to be watching the remake of Fated to love you? The lead actor will be in it. I was going to watch it because Eternal Love couple but the mydramalist synopsis is a bit …
