Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

How can I level up from Chaebol’s poor doppelganger? I’ve been in this level for so many months. This desperation is too much I can barely bear.. (*acting sobbing)

    no secrets, gotta be active, posting on recaps/articles gives more points than posting on the fanwall
    maybe @sicarius broke the level up code or has more advice 🙂 , she’s at one of the highest level

        Errand Boy was the only level where I really felt that I was stuck. And not the only one. To the point where there were so many of us that we started an ongoing gif story about all the Errand Boys out tackling an organised crime group called the ?Lees?

        The algorithm’s a mystery, frankly. But I think being active on the fan wall gives you more “points”.

          Actually recaps and news threads give you more points than the fanwall, although it obviously prefers both. Also the levels get harder to pass as they go up. I was a Loan Shark for like 8 months.

          Lol, the EBI Gif Story! The story should have been about the Errand Boys finding the algorithm, which was hid by the villainous Lees. The Lees are the real villains.

          Yes, Errand Boys was the hardest level to pass for me. I had 15,000 upvotes and I was still an Errand Boy for a long time, so I think it’s more about commenting on recaps and fanwall than getting upvotes.

I am liking the twists and turns of the last ep. of the MoA. But I’m not sure that with this game thing is about to be cleared, how will they drag the show to 16 ep. when now it’s just ep.8?

Oiiii I just can’t wait for the next episode of the Memories of the Alhambra… I love the feeling that the story is being unfolded and that things are not as crazy as they’ve been. Sigh*

Memories of the Alhambra.. Sometimes it’s too scary. Sometimes it’s sad. I don’t know how to describe my feeling but one thing I’m certain is that I feel Jin Woo. He must be in an indescribable pain.

    Did you already watch the episode? I just want to discuss it so badly

      Hi @nerdy i watched it. Want to discuss it too.

        Did this ending felt weird to you too? I mean, it was too romantic for their current relationship.
        At the moment, I think we can all agree that Hee Joo is more invested in this relationship than Jin Woo (before the big run he didn’t even remember about her, and I believed him when he said that it was drugs speaking in him when he called Hee Joo).
        I think I am the only one who likes our female lead. I mean, she is mostly a doormat and a candy female lead, but she is literally what Jin Woo needs. I doubt he would have trusted someone who is more….loud than her.
        Also, storywise I like that Jin Woo got psychological issues, after his experience it would have been unrealistic if he were perfectly sane.
        We have zero progress about the game, I hope this changes and Emma would appear again.
        What about you? What did you think about the episode?

        3
        2

          Me too. I want to discuss too~

          I’m not feeling it. I had doubts with ep 5. But ep 6 was all over the place with minimal plot progress and lingering shots. JW is now a drug addict addicted to sleeping pills. Not feeling the romance either. It feels shoved in. HJ is invested with JW. I dont know how JW feels. But i do see that JW is nearly always over the edge since Cha’s death.

          1

            I suspect Jin Woo was also drinking a lot, the wine bottle was empty. On a more optimistic side, I don’t think it would be a plot device for long, Jin Woo’s addiction would probably get cured when he gets back to Korea. The game is set in Granada. I was actually wondering why he didn’t left sooner but it seems like he was too physically weak for that.
            Actually, before the ending I didn’t take Hee Joo’s crush all that seriously, I think it has to do with the fact that the story is from Jin Woo’s perspective. From what she knows- he is charming, handsome, and helped her at the moment of need, he was the victim in his last two relationships, is fragile and feeds her hero complex (or whatever woman feel when they see the damaged guy…or what we felt while watching Just Between Lovers). I don’t think her feelings are all that right, but she has little experience or social life outside her jobs so it is understandable that she likes him.
            Jin Woo probably likes her at some degree? But not enough to give it much thought

            @nerdy
            Hi both of you. My apologies for coming so late and you guys have already left the discussions here XD. I think JW drank a lot and took a lot of pills because sometimes, during this kind of time, people just don’t wanna be awake. I kinda understand that feeling. When you mind tricks you, you know that you’re being tricked but you just can’t do anything. And waking up, sometimes, are a more dreadful nightmare. So points to these particular things they put in the show. They make sense. And yes, I do agree that if the game is limited to Granada, JW should be fine, better in S Korea, thus does not have to take sleeping pills/consume alcohol like he did in Granada.

            For HJ, yes, I do agree that she cares very much for JW. He was a prince charming to her, who threw a ten billion won to her so easily. He helped her get out of her and her family poverty, and now somehow he’s almost deranged. She surely thinks that something has gone so wrong, and perhaps she thinks that it’s related to him buying that house from her. Seeing a person mentally collapsing in front of her eyes is surely something devastating. I feel her.

            But for JW, I think the portrayal of JW by HB is quite confusing here. I would’t expect him to develop any kind/degree of love interest in HJ in this period that the normality of his mental health is being questioned, and him being run after by an enemy- used to be closest friend dead person NPC. So I feel like the scene that he told his secretary to send HJ a very big banquet of red roses is quite out of his character.

            @mmmmm
            I actually thought that roses were only a gratitude gift for a nice girl. Considering how much she cared about him it would have been weird if he didn’t give her anything, flowers or accecories seem like an obvious gift choices. Poor Hee Joo obviously misunderstood him or thought that their relationship was going somewhere.
            I am with you on saying that Jin Woo is not at the place where he can think about romantic relationships. He was touched by her kindness, but I think that’s it (at least now)

            I don’t know if it’s only me, a banquet of flowers/even roses is one thing, but a banquet of only red roses is quite another. I feel like a banquet of only red roses can only indicate romantic feeling. Perhaps other may think differently. 🙂

          I think it would’ve been better if we started this discussion elsewhere because we don’t know if mmmmm has watched the episode and this is her post but now that we are already on it I’ll add my thoughts. I should’ve mentioned that in the previous comment, my fault. But yeah I think we will see progress in the next episode. What I guess is that the game progresses in Korea too now. Regarding the whole romantic connection, it’s off. They specially HJ have nothing really to force that romantic relationship. I don’t why she is in any way so attached to him when all he did was buy her house. But yes maybe her looking after him might incite some feelings in him. What surprised me more that time has certainly passed away and the family still didn’t care where Se Ju is. Also as we are in Korea next week, I hope they do show that they searched for him at least. Shifting a country without caring about him would be so absurd. Even if these 2 episodes were slower for me I think they were important to show the effects of the game but all that could still be shown in half an episode. Hoping for more progress next episode. Plus we are not a year apart yet right? Them coming back to Korea perhaps happens within the year right? The timeline has confused me for the first time.

          1
          3

            Probably them going to Korea would be after a year.
            And Se-Joo. I absolutely forgot about him. I hope we get to find him sooner. He is probably the only one who can solve this mess with Jin Woo. And yes, it very weird that family cares that little about underage guy dissapearing for at least two week.

            I’m not sure if this is correct, but it seems like some beanies suggest that the ep.1-ep.6 is within the two-three day period? Can that be possible?

            0
            0

            I think they are saying that regarding the dialogue by JW, that I’ve met her only 2 days before–it was sth like this. I think it was used metaphorically. That a person that I’ve met merely a short period of time ago how can she fall for me. So that’s not just two days. Plus I think the now timeline in Korea is not the next year we were shown in last scenes of ep 2, it is perhaps a few months after ep 6.

Break up with Jin ah, Joon hee. She’s just not worth it.

*sigh* what a woman.

    I don’t get why people Lee saying Joon hee is perfect either. Is a person who is incapable of carrying on a mature relationship the norm now? So if Joon hee does a lot right he’s unrealistic? Maybe he doesn’t clean up after himself, or wash the dishes, lol. Jin Ah’s mistakes are just so unnecessary for an adult in a relationship. *SPOILER*

    Why would you go on a blind date? Why?

    1
    1

      Yes, why in the world made she think going to a blind date was a good decision? Even being a friend with her would make my head spin with anger. The woman just has no logic whatsoever. It’s a mess, it’s really a mess in her head.

      For Joon Hee, I don’t think he or anyone in this world is perfect, but I can see the reasons why he did things. That just isn’t the case with Jin Ah. I expect her to be much more mature since she’s many years older than him too.

Reading @rinny’s post about Korean food and about ramyeon made me remember one of the most romantic ramyeon scene in Kdramas – Ojakgyo Brother Taehee & Ja Eun’s ramyeon scene.

    This video clip doesn’t have that ramyeon scene in it but their love is so sweet and the chemistry between them is one of the most heart-fluttering ones I’ve ever seen Kdrama world. ☺️💖

    I miss UEE’s chubby face and her glittering eyes. She’s beautiful now but was soooo adorable then.

    I was crazy about them back then! Ja Eun is still my favourite UEE role…

      I think so too. As much as I love UEE and KKW in Our Husband, watching this reminds me of the time I was so crazy about Joo Won and UEE. They really portrayed their roles perfectly. It’s almost like they ARE Tae her and Ja Eun. Is this the result of having to watch a series lasting like 50 episodes? So that it would eventually find a way to grow on you?

      Awww I so miss them 💖…

        UEE has great chemistry with almost all her male co-stars but “Ojakgyo Brothers” has a special place in my heart – it was my first 50-episode long weekend drama and it was really well written. I was so rooting for them and cried buckets when they broke up. Joo Won looked like he was genuinely in love with her at that time…

        1
        1

          I remember Joo Won once gave an interview that he was basically fell for everyone of the female leads he worked with. That was why the feeling was real.. so I genuinely think he fell for UEE too during the time. ☺️💖

    I totally agree! Eric has surprised me by becoming such a silly sad puppy of a second lead. I want Seung Joo and Jak Do to adopt him into their family later, goodness knows she needs a better brother. And he would try so hard to be the cool uncle for their kids!!

      I’m so appreciative of how he backed off when he saw she didn’t like him that way.
      He needs them too – Seung Joo was the first person to ever respect him for who he is in his life, and Jak Doo is reluctantly following close behind.
      Darn it. Now I want to see him being the ‘uncle’.

      At this rate, I’m still considering it myself. But I think my go-to choice is to persuade him to break up with that girl Seung Joo and will home-school him about real life people and try to reduce his level of naiveness.

    I’ve kinda been on the opposite end after thinking about it. I think their separation (though I agree it is idiotic) will allow them to start fresh with more complete honesty with each other. They’ll have to face the issues they just wanted to bury for so long, and they’re the only ones who can help each other do it. Jak-Doo will come to terms with the Oh Hyuk side of him, and Seung-Joo will be able to reconcile her fears of abandonment and her horrid family ruining everything.
