Beanie level: Entertainer-in-training

Na PD had promised to send Jiwon and Soo-geun to moon if his YT channel got 100M subscribers and *drumrolls* he actually gained them lol!

Poor guy did a sad live showing the “golden play” button.

    LOL this may be the first ever voluntary unsubscribe campaign

    lol..but he is smart that way.. in korea they have opened a center. essentially gives you experience of being on moon.. so he very well planned it out.. ๐Ÿ™‚

    i bet that is where these guys are going

    LOL! But that was fast, he got himself in trouble now, this is going to be fun!

      He always gets himself in trouble like this!

      Winner Over Flowers and Kang’s Kitchen were a by-product of his last cockiness 😂

        do you guys really think so?

        i always thought that was preplanned..
        like giraffe trip is preplanned this year

        because ultimately, Na PD has to think of content for year round right..

        his lovers thing bombed (AHJ and KHS thing.. don’t think garnered as much trp to pursue seasons)..
        the asmr thing also didn’t do wonders to be called for another season
        fishing village last season got lower numbers,and then LSJ also pulled out.. so out he came with the spain thingy with the other fish village cast

        ******************
        ultimately he is back to his old formular..
        1n2dish NJTWW
        food shows
        and other trip shows

          Actually what he offered initially were Porsche and Lamborghini during NJTTW4… it was only later that he himself mentioned shows like YoF, Youn’s Kitchen… because ofcourse those are things he can actually do…

          So I don’t think that he is a huge strategist who believed that one of the members will be able to touch that tiny dot after 15 elephant spins not only once but twice ๐Ÿ˜€ What he however is good at is being quick on his feet.

          The moon thing which you mentioned might be right and he could have that as an option for sure but right now they really are begging people to unsuscribe- not just him alone, but his whole team.. Is that hilarious? Definitely! Could it all be staged? Probably. Who knows. Only the moon trip will tell ๐Ÿ˜›

          3
          1

            ya to me that porsche thingy seemed like all preplanned
            .. like he was already planning for kang’s kitchen or have mroe things with this group, because this group was getting the trps

            that begging to unsubscribe.. but that is his style.. i do think he does plan quite a few things in advance and it isn’t as spontaneous as it looks
            his staff has built that image for him right.. bets, and then loses and then has to payup.. and this same formula worked brilliantly in 1n2d s1 .. those episodes where Na failed his bets are some of the best

I left another job. This one in 3 months cuz I wasn’t satisfied with my teaching, the students, the workload and the school itself.

But I got the sweetest msgs on my last day! Turns out that even though I wasn’t happy, the students were! 😭 I am gonna miss them!

Now that I am on break, I have to catch up on all my dramas!! Camelia, Extraordinary, Nokdu!!! And NJTTW!!!

P.S. I have so many stories to tell about that Korean student who caught my fangirling secret! But some other day! 💙

    There are lovely message , they have enjoyed your teaching, you can be proud ๐Ÿ˜€

    (now excuse me for ruining the moment but… at first I thought “hey that’s a very nice handwriting”, then read the other messages “err wait they all look the same 🤔”, so has someone written for everyone with a nice handwriting or do all your students write in such a nice way ? (nope I’m not jealous 🙄))

    to finish on a good note : nice to see you back ๐Ÿ™‚ , happy catch up time with different shows 😘

    I was actually thinking of you the other day, it seems like when you’re on DB, I’m not, and I keep seeing your posts late!

    How are you now? Feeling better I hope! Don’t worry about work, take this chance and de-stress now that you have the time.

      IKR!
      Hahhah I think I am just not in a very DB mood because I have no desire to spazz abt dramas right now and no one is spazzing abt WINNER here lol…
      I have caught up with Camelia and NJJTW though! And somehow feel like I should just wait for Extraordinary to end before picking it back up again! Same with Nokdu.

      I am much better, thanks. I am already in talks with a new institute but I am really enjoying the breakkk!!! I can finally focus on my health now! I need to lose like 15 kgs lol!
      How have you been? What have you been watching and liking?

      1
      2

        And I’m the opposite exactly! I’m spazzing about everything, and I’m on DB a lot!

        Extraordinary You has only 2 episodes left so you can pick it up at the end of next week, I’ve been enjoying it a lot but ep 13&14 were a bit rushed and maybe confusing, I just hope it ends well because I really love it!

        I’ve been watching Camellia as well, and Yong-shik is LOVE! And I started my 1st ever chinese drama for Xu Kai, he is only like the most adorable person that ever existed! LOL!

        Oh, good luck, it’s going to be tough but you can do it, I’m still trying to reach my target weight.. but I’m so de-motivated these days 😅

        1
        1

          Oooh nicee!

          Just 2??? I thought 4!! Okay then I will have to catch up hahha!
          Yong-shik is adorbsss! Chinese shows are all the rage nowadays!

          De-motivation is my constant companion but thankfully other factors, like actually having some time, are working for me ๐Ÿ˜›

          1
          1

            Yes, it is 16 episodes, right? Or is it? 😅 He is, and yes, there is a lot of talk of The Untamed yet I never felt like watching it but one look at Xu Kai and I was in love 😂

            Yes, I think I’m just making excuses and putting off working out, it gets tiring! Not trying to demotivate you, though!

            1
            0

        Nah nah… must be 16… I just didn’t realize that 14 episodes had aired already hehhe! I am almost 4-5 eps behind!

        Who is Xu Kai? Has he worked in anything else?

        Hahah I didn’t take it as you demotivating me at all! I am also dieting and exercising to get a kick start to this weight loss!

        1
        2

          Yeah, checked, it’s 16 episodes, 2 more to go, I’m really not expecting a happy ending but I want a satisfying one even if it breaks our hearts!

          That’s good, 1st few weeks will be a bit hard but once you get used to it, it will become easier, and make sure you drink lots of water and give your body enough time to recover between a workout and another!

          Also, this is Xu Kai:

          1
          1

            I have reached ep 13! I think I will be able to catch up by the time ep15 airs!! I am not too sure of what I feel about the show for the last 2-3 eps.. Hope it has a good ending!

            Yeah I am trying… The diet is boring hehhe but I have completed 5/7 days! 2 more to go and then just exercise and controlled eating!

            Oooh looks good!

            1
            0

          Yes, I think you can manage! I still love the show but I agree, these last few episodes felt lackluster! Yeah, me too!

          LOL! so are you following a dietician or you’ve made your own plan?

          1
          1

            Just one more ep to go! Wohoo!

            Nah I just followed a plan that a friend had found effective… But it’s just a week long thing to kickstart the weight loss and later it will all be dependent on exercise and stuff..

        I also hope their music hasn’t been/won’t be too affected by the whole mess YG is in. They don’t deserve to be brought down by that.

        2
        2

          They have managed to stay away from that mess…. I mean they literally released Ah Yeah (and the mini album WE) during that YG mess and fielded reporters pretty well. Despite it all, they even charted well enough. They have the general public support but this time, the public seems to be in a mood for ballads and this is definitely not that lol.

            SOSO has remained in the top 3 on Naver all day today! I have so much respect for WINNER (and AKMU too!) for holding out like that.

          AKMU has done so brilliantly this time! I think they have been no 1 on melon since their album was released! They are in another league! Nation’s siblings for sure!

            Yup, they’ve held out at no 1 this entire time! The nation definitely missed their voices and was waiting for Chanhyuk to be discharged from the military.

      (context : thought I’d checked the album on Wednesday evening, but was too tired , went to bed …only resulting in turning over in bed, then decide to do something useful : checked the album at 00:10am on Thrusday -_- , so here’s my thoughts after the 1st listening in this context )

      1. SOSO
      I liked it but before reaching the end of the song, I realized it kinda boring me and that I probably won’t listen to it on loop

      2. OMG
      Surprised by the calm beginning which I didn’t expect for a track called OMG. Yoon’s singing style seems so americanized, or has he always sung like that ? Thought oh what a good song for variety shows BGM x)

      3. Dress up
      Was laughing as soon as I heard the “baby” “baby” at the beginning, then what with that robotic sound ?! x) Nothing ‘s left after hearing the song, not a deep impression, was kinda bored mid-way and was looking at the album cover : why did they shoot 4 hands like that ?

      4. Flamenco
      Beginning compliant to its name x) . This put me in such a happy and good mood, was smiling brightly in bed ๐Ÿ˜€ . Don’t know why but I pictured Hoon ‘s dressed as a Mexican guy with the big hat and a moustache while singing it x)

      5. Wind
      O_o wow Wow WoW WOW, I loved it , was saying “wow” all along, loved the progression , the upbeat song but not too much at the same time, fav’ <3

      6. Don't be shy
      hearing the whisper : Aish x) haha no surprise compared to what I expected for that ^^'

      Sorry if it sounds brutal honest but that was my 1st impressions ^^' . I don't really like that album except Flamenco and Wind, guess I'll just keep listening to their 2nd album (and always skip everyday that I don't like ^^')

      1
      2

        Nooo I like that you are being honest ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. I actually personally love the song a lot, but it might be stemming from being so in awe of the MV. Did you watch it?

        2. Its a fun song haha… And Yoon, I dunno, he does have a different way of singing but dunno if it will be called westernized.

        3. Yeah I am not crazy abt the song either but I guess I am gonna like it in an actual concert atmosphere.
        The meaning of Cross is basically how the 4 of them have really different personalities and they kinda cross each other to form WINNER so the hands are reaching towards each other… They are way into the idea of “being together 4eva”.

        4. Hahhahha it’s funny that there was a concert in Seoul today and he was wearing that bull- fighter’s dress.. and I wanted to show it to you but I don’t think we can add our saved images in comments, so I just tweeted this: https://twitter.com/IC_muchie/status/1188153276123897856

        5. Hahhah as expected! It’s a really good song!

        6. Lolllll I haven’t dared check the lyrics yet but yeah, it sounds like was expected from the hoe line.

        1
        1

          1. I watched the MV thanks to your post, but some parts creeped me out ^^’ , cinematography is good (a bit lazy too so there are parts I didn’t understand the meaning but won’t take time to think more about it x) )

          3. oh that was the meaning of Cross, ok, thank you for enlightening me ๐Ÿ™‚

          4. haha that moustache pwahaha, thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ , also I loved how they used the song in njttw S7E1 so funny x)

          2

            4. No problem!

It’s funny that Winner is gonna be releasing their album on Ziggy’s birthday. Till they release new music, I am gonna enjoy all of SIG’s songs. Posting this one here- one of my favs outta all his songs. Check it out for not only for the amazing song but also for waaayyyy toooo many SIG kisses hehhe.

D-day for WINNER’s Cross (I am dying of excitement)

Happy Birthday to my favourite actor! Hope you take up a TV project soon Ziggy! I miss you on my screen! Or maybe release an album? Pretty please?

Yes that second image is totally related because it was Yoon Yoon-Jae’s bday in that scene..

Okay I don’t even have any excuse for the other gifs other than the fact that he looks good. Except that last one where he is actually icing a cake! But does it need to make sense? Nops. Why am I rambling? Because I can.

Anyway, wishing this man a verrrry happy birthday!

Guys! You NEED to listen to them sing in this video. They are amazing! And they are still killing the charts!

        I’ll try to check the album on Wednesday and write my first thoughts on the phone (realizing I won’t even have a laptop yikes 😬, I need to download some eps in advance 😰),will then share it when I’ll be back on DB ๐Ÿ™‚

    useless Kudo’s first reaction reading the songs’ names :

    1. Soso : oh this is going to be a fav’, I like the word “soso” it sounds nice 😅, its song can’t sound bad 😋

    2. OMG : if there’s a clip , it’ll be full of colors like Ah yeah & Millions , pls bring me a fun & upbeat song ๐Ÿ™‚

    3. dress up, really really is making a black suit comeback 😆

    4. Flamenco….pff really ?! Flamenco 🤨? feeling this is going to be a sexy song I won’t be able to take seriously, sorry in advance 🤐

    5. Baram (Wind) this this this is going to be a fav’ 🤩, hoping for a nice song, not too slow but not too upbeat too, like a cool & refreshing breeze 🤗

    6. Don’t be shy (look at the lyrics by section, see Mino) , I will listen to it without the translations then a second time with the translations to feel embarrassed , if this is a “turn off the light” take 2 🙈

    ps : I will check the album and then will have fun recognizing the songs in Njttw S7 ๐Ÿ˜€

      Hahhahha I loved reading your reaction!

      1. Soso: gosh I hope it’s good! The name was spoiled on vlive almost 2 years back! I want FOOL part 2 but it doesn’t sound real serious… I just don’t want another Ah Yeah n Millions as title again and anyway….

      2. OMG: …. this sounds like it will be exactly that! Yoon spoiled it sometime back by saying that it’s about looking at a girl and being astonished by her beauty and going “OMG” every time lol.. Colourful song here we come…

      3. Can’t they like… dress down instead? Just wondering. 🤭

      4. I am gonna love this song regardless hehhe… Anyway, it could be inspired by the actual dance form and hence be a dance number.. After all, Hoony went to LoTJ Mexico. I so hope it has an MV or a dance practice video at least.

      5. After Air, he is bringing Wind. Next up, storm lol. I already know I am gonna love this song!! Air is an all time fav!

      6. Kkekkekkeke yeah it will be full of innuendos! I wonder if it will be a MinHoon sub-unit or if it will have other members too.

      PS. NJTTW is gonna be a free promotion of the album and I am so glad that ep1 is gonna air just two days after the release!

We got a concept teaser too!

I am hoping that the concept actually reflects in the MV but Millions and Ah Yeah concept teasers vs the actual MV gave me trust issues 😂

This is the story about how my secret fangirl life was exposed at my workplace.

There I was just going about my regular task aka teaching students. Now, I was showing em some videos on Youtube and I am usually very careful about not letting them see my YT recommendations. I ALWAYS turn on the projector only after I have found the video I want to show. But I forgot about a very important thing.

After I was done showing the video in question, my students asked me to play another one. I started typing it on the YT search bar and out dropped my recent searches. I didn’t realize there was anything wrong with it, till the Korean student in my class went:

“Ma’am wait a minute… what is that? what… is that Kim Jinu Call Anytime”

    Hoping against hope that a Korean living in India would not know about Jinwoo, I just said “oh it’s nothing”. Thankfully other students were busy doing their own thing and hadn’t yet noticed this conversation.

    Then that girl went “So… WINNER? you like Jinu huh? I like Mino”.

    *Muchie screams internally*

    She was waiting for my reaction and I just blushed. So damn hard. And she JUMPED up and air punched and let out a “I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT”. She went on to say that she kept wondering how I knew so many Korean words, how I could understand some conversations between the Korean students in the school and how I knew so much about the culture. I clearly hadn’t kept it under wraps!

    She is not a kpop fan but used to love EXO. She did ask me suspiciously if I like BTS as well and on hearing that I mostly just like WINNER, SHINee, BtoB and some other acts but that I do like kpop in general, she was quite happy telling me that she is tired of people talking to her because of the recent popularity of BTS.

    And surprise surprise, she loves kdramas. And gosh once she started on that topic, she didn’t stop! All of a sudden, a Bhutanese boy in the class went “so miss, do you like Namjoo also” and I was like whut? Who are you talking about? We wondered if he was talking abt NamJoon but nopes, he had watched like ONE kdrama in his life and that was Weightlifting Fairy hahah. Back to that girl spazzing about the dramas which she called lesser known but which are DB legends like Age of Youth.

    It’s safe to say that I lost one whole period talking abt kdramas and kpop which other students enjoyed as well. Now whenever she sees me in the corridors of school, she passes me big (hand-over-head hearts) and giggles when I answer back with a finger heart.

      Luckily (or well unluckily) I have so much work that I do not get time for any of the other searches lol. Oh how I miss my “best kdrama kisses” video compilations ๐Ÿ˜›
      No wonder I have resigned because a job that doesn’t give me time for stupid searches is not a job that I wish to do ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hmmm.. soโ€ฆ I donโ€™t know whether this qualifies as makjang but I wanted to participate on the last day of the #MakjangMondayMonth.

Lemme know if I need to tag people.

    There was a girl. Letโ€™s call her Bee. She fell in love with a boy. Letโ€™s call him Ree. They were 12 and 13 respectively. She was popular, he was popular. It was a classic teen movie. The jock in love with the dancer. He was the perfect guy who used to walk her back to her home, always staying around 20 meters behind her. He would then wait below her hostelโ€™s balcony and they would then talk about how their day went. They loved each other like only young ones do. Inspired by the 90s movies they watched, they loved each other from a distance. Their eyes held countless conversations while they were supposed to be studying during the evening classes at their boarding school. He would run up to the terrace of the boys hostel every morning at 5:30 just because he knew she would be on the terrace of the girlsโ€™ hostel. They could barely see each other but they used to wave to each other. This was their preferred way of starting each day. Ahโ€ฆ one could go on and on about their love story. But letโ€™s move on.

    Ree had to leave school because of some financial problems back at home. Bee stayed behind only to move away from that school soon. They lost touch. They joined new schools. They made new friends but still remembered each other. Bee finished her school and decided that now she wants to look for him. She found him on one of those early social networking sites. (Anyone remembers Hi5?).
    They couldnโ€™t believe their luck. Maybe fairy tales are true after all. Who meets each other after 4 years when they have completely different friend circles? Specially in a country with 1.3 billion people. Anyway, they rekindled their old love. It was not a simple cute thing now. They were both adults. Or well. Almost adults. It was heady. It was amazing. They decided they will get married when they complete 10 years of their relationship. You see, they were counting the time they were away from each other as well. Everything was colourful, everything nice. They talked to each other all the time they could get away from college each day. After all, they had to find out who the grown-up Bee and Ree were. They fell in love all over again.

    But then something happened. Misunderstandings. Distance. Ree was studying in another city and Bee too was focused on her studies. These were dark times for Bee and she doesnโ€™t like remembering them. They were also pretty weird times because Ree seemed to have changed. Not that Bee didnโ€™t feel like she had changed. You see, talking on the phone every waking moment is fun only initiallyโ€ฆ Later, it becomes a little taxing. They fought. A lot. They broke up eventually. But Bee was sure that they will meet each other again later in life. After all, they had met up after a 4-year gap when they didnโ€™t even have each otherโ€™s numbers! She was also sure that Ree thought the same.

    She had โ€œunfriendedโ€ him but still kept checking his profile. Even though she was angry at him, she never forgot him or their love. Time passed and the profile checking became irregular. One fine day, she woke up and had this urge to find out how he is. She had never felt such an urge and she was scared. She reached for her phone to call him but she just couldnโ€™t make herself do that. She waited till the evening and checked his Orkut profile and it was a bitโ€ฆ weirdโ€ฆ His friends were commenting nonsense on his wall. It just did not make sense.

    โ€œHow could you leave us?โ€ โ€œJust 20 and so full of lifeโ€ โ€œWe will miss youโ€ โ€œYou will always be in our heartsโ€
    โ€œRIPโ€

    That was in 2009.

I am playing catch up with “When Devil…” n while I am not sure of where the story is going, Jung Kyung Ho is doing a brilliant job of making me like an unlikeable character yet again! I am in love! The way he understands this character and gives that layering to Ha Rip is amazing!

The way he emotes plus that unexpectedly hilarious comedic timing is just everything! so, it totally helps that I love the hairstyle and his look in the show! Plus the songs are all so nice!

Basically, I am enjoying this show a lot, despite not being crazy about the story!

    There are many shows that I enjoy and even rewatch a lot despite not liking the story, or the leads. Some shows can do that to you.

    I’ve always been curious how did the nickname Ziggy start?

      Ahhh it’s a name that originated here on DB… Basically he doesn’t like being called Gukkie apparently and sometimes SIG sounds too… I dunno… a lil formal maybe? And a fellow beanie @kaybee started calling him Ziggy (from SIG- siggy- Ziggy, but also as a nod to Ziggy Stardust) and it seemed perfect hahha… and me the die hard Seo In Guk fan on DB kept posting stuff talking about Ziggy along with @sicarius so it became part of DB lore 😊

        I still donโ€™t call him that because itโ€™s like changing his surname.

        Curious when he said he doesnโ€™t like Gukkie though? I see his friends write his name ๊ตฌ๊ธฐ once in a while.

          I mean it’s a nickname and that too a fan given one which he won’t ever be aware of… We aren’t changing his name ๐Ÿ™‚

          I read it in an interview long back and many of his fans have talked about it… If I find it again, I will link it here for you.
