Beanie level: Loan shark with a heart of gold

I miss this boy and his voice.
I also miss this show. Yep. I liked it a lot, including all its flaws.
SO here I am posting the live version of the lovely OST.

Frankly it wouldn’t be a proper Muchie return on DB without a mention of Ziggy πŸ˜‰

I wasn’t on here for a month. I did lurk but only occasionally.

Logged in today to just express my love for beanies and Dramabeans. I didn’t see all the lovely posts but the few I did see touched me deep, made me cry, made me smile, made me think, made me happy and in general, made my day.

Basically just logged in to say that you all are amazing.

Love, February. I guess.

Dear Dramabeans

I have been a loan shark for almost an year now! How long will I remain so! I became one on 19th Jan last year!

Tell me what I have to do to level up! I have the stats, what else?

Ending my Hoony spam with a guide πŸ™‚

Happy 28th to my favorite boy 💕

Give the boy more variety shows. He is made for them! Here he is imitating YG n JYP along with his Big Bang sunbaenims.

Also, him singing BangBangBang in 2x speed in the comments.

Dorky Hoony, aka another reason I love him so.

Another Hoony composition. I didn’t love the song initially but after seeing it performed, I do- so so much! I originally thought the song is about a special night out with that special someone- but turns out it was what happens after that night “out” πŸ˜›
WINNER rapline really can’t ever remain innocent 😂

This is from the Singapore concert. Lyrics video in comments.

Hoony’s dance doesn’t get enough credit and I have just so many dance performances I could post here but I wanted a video which had more than one, so here you go:

Hoony the dancer- an incomplete compilation.

Hoony is also known as Deputy Lee of YG because he actually is a YG worker and not an idol only. He works both behind the scenes and on screen for WINNER! This one is a small example of how he handles tricky situations in a split second-

They recently guested on a radio show hosted by Jung So Min and the station played just the instrumental of the song instead of the actual song with vocals, and Winner boys (Jinwoo was not there that day) reacted real quick and sang it live. So Min was so cute adding in her “Millions” and about died at Hoony’s “ehee”. Same girl same! πŸ˜€

(P.S. I always wanted some sorta WINNER x SIG interaction but at least I got a whole one hour – or actually two as she was present at another radio show too- of WINNER x So Min)

The song that made me a legit Hoony stan. Before this, I had no bias in WINNER but then he came along with that hairstyle and I was a goner! πŸ˜›

    Ooh come to think of it, I don’t know this story. Tell me more. 😄

      No story as such… just that long hair styled into ponytail and man-bun- the combination of it all and he climbed my bias list.

      The position became permanent when I randomly checked out one of his vlives and he was talking real seriously about stuff, laying it all bare about things that idols or ppl in general are expected to do but which he won’t do just because of those expectations. And just like that, it was done!

    It was the dance practice for this one that drew me in.

There are many reasons I love Lee Seunghoon (cue: “Got Millions Millions… the reason I like you “) but the biggest one is just how genuinely nice he is with everyone around him.

This video doesn’t cover it all- no video can probably- but it’s one of my fav fmv from back when I was getting into WINNER.

WINNER is not a group that dances too often. It’s not like they can’t dance, they definitely can (though I don’t have much trust in their stamina 🙈) but somehow their style and songs usually don’t require much of dancing…

FOOL is a song where you actually dont expect a choreo but I love such choreos the best… I don’t know if there is a word for it, but I call it “lyrical choreography” where the steps are kinda based on the lyrics? Anyway, this choreography was done by my boy Hoony.

    *Jaw drops* He does??? Man! That is one talented guy! Like did he do for all Winner songs?
    I did watch this one video with JYP where he showed this dance move for ‘Love Me Love Me’ that was rejected by YG. Didn’t put much thought into it at the time. Gosh I have a lot to learn about them

    1

      Nah not all of them! I wish he did but he hasn’t done much… He is a brilliant dancer though and I am gonna post some of his own choreos here over the day today 😊

      Oooh u have watched JYP’s Party People episode of Winner then? You wanna learn about them? I am the right person for that hehe

        That was THE ONLY Party People episode I watched. Haha. Was there any other YG artists featured on the show?

        I guess you’re fated to be my teacher. Your ‘Raining’ post was the very first one that came up when I click the Beanies page.

        1
        2

Seunghoon hasn’t released a lot of his own compositions till now but this one is my favorite out of the ones he has been able to release.

Raining- Japanese version
P.S. the choreo here seems very Hoony too though he hasn’t been officially credited.

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing. I’ve only recently discovered Winner thanks to Mino and Youth Over Flower. I was surprised by how much I’m enjoying their music. I’ve been listening to their tracks nonstop for 2 weeks now and am on a hunt for their live performances & variety show appearances. Do share with me your favourites!

      Awww I am so happy to hear that! I love their songs so much! And well, I love the boys too, specially after Winner Over Flowers. 💙

      I have way too many favorites honestly and I don’t want to overwhelm you with links, so I will just share two songs and you can let me know if you want more?

      This is “Air” live on a radio show-
      https://youtu.be/Q_rFxoEuB38

      And I have to share a cover too cuz Winner do covers so well!
      https://youtu.be/1X6_49V91dQ

        That ‘Air’ performance is both amazing and hilarious at the same time! Good thing they were on the radio. I think there was another video where the female DJ sang the chorus along with them. That was soo fun to watch! Found it by chance but I forgot to save the vid.

        p.s. Bring it on! I’m ready to be overwhelmed LOL! But no pressure, you can share the links whenever you’re free. I’ll surely check your wall from time to time.

          Hahaha yes! The boys always have fun on radio. That one was this-
          https://youtu.be/v3C3GJcAIIs

          Ooh okay!
          *rubs palms*
          What do I start with? Do you want their live performances mostly? Let me start with-
          “Hello” radio live-
          https://youtu.be/oFH9mO_4VSw

          And their cover of Big Bang’s Haru Haru which never fails to give me goosebumps-
          https://youtu.be/q4RAFve4_4Y

          I will keep posting stuff for you in this thread 😊
          I am currently doing a Hoony focused DB posting cuz it’s his birthday today..

          For their variety, do definitely check out their recent Idol Room episode and their 2 older Weekly Idol episodes.. do u want links for them?
          I can suggest so much variety because their variety sense was what made me fall for them 😍

          3
          1

            Wow!! That Haru Haru cover was sooo good! I must say they’re as engaging on live stage as Big Bang.

            Think I saw the Idol Room episode a few days back. So much fun! But now that you’ve mentioned it, I have a sudden urge to watch it again. As for Weekly Idol, I don’t think I’ve watched the first one with five of them. Would appreciate the link.

            I really can’t thank you enough for taking the time to help me out!

            Now continue with your Hoony posts. Looking forward to see more of his adorkable-ness!

      Oooh are you a Big Bang fan? And yeah they are really good! πŸ™‚

      I now want to rewatch some of their variety too! I ended up watching parts of their first Weekly Idol ep- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvicEF5UnO0

      It is divided in parts but I guess the remaining parts will come up in recommendations πŸ™‚
      This WI guesting btw was their first variety appearance after debut and they still did so well! Wish they had gotten more variety during their debut era. They just got this and Yu Huiyeol’s Sketchbook guesting.

      For their other variety shows, you can find many links in this spreadsheet that @irishrah made and which I help update from time to time πŸ™‚
      https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jKtb8p5SkhpDFd3j_hwwLiiBzti5tnfMjXRDDJ2CLok/edit#gid=0

      And because I mentioned Sketchbook- these two live performances from there shouldn’t be missed- (again, this was them during debut!)

      Oh and this- “Baby Baby” at a fashion show-

    Happy birthday charming guy! Can see why he’s your bias. I really love how he naturally interacted with the people around him when they did Winner over Flowers. He should do a lot more variety shows

I can now declare that I want to be a part of the Melona Queendom finally, not because I like Melonas, no not that at all! This is only because the Melonian Queen (@sicarius) is finally completing her promise to come back to that old land of The Liar and his Lover, the land that was glorious once but now in ruins. She comes one year (and some months) too late but still she is keeping her promise and I love that.

I doubt she can revive the Liar Ninjas now but at least I am going to go back and relive my life as a Ninja. The nostalgia for that time gone by is so strong! I remember upvoting every positive comment possible for the show, even if it was in other threads! We were crazy and I miss the craze so much!

    I might have interrupted her TLAHL watching with that c-drama. Now it’s going to take her longer to complete this mission. Better think twice about joining the queendom. LOL

    Denier of Melona. Humph. That’s your title.
    OF COURSE I CAME BACK. DID YOU THINK I WOULDN’T? I might be slow but I can be loyal. That is why I am Queen.
    And I told you I will pull this land up from its ruins and make it great again. Just you watch.
    I appreciate your Ninja support and (reluctant) allegiance. I’m going to need all the help I can get.

      Ninjas have retired! I remember at one of the peak highs, one of the recapper’s comments on Sico’s post got 90+ likes! Not anymore…
