          Oh it really is alive and kicking! There are new things happening almost everyday.. I heard that this is the longest publicity stint that any YG group has ever done! It sure is a good time to be a Winner fan… Hopefully they are already working on a new song and there are rumours that they will release it next summer..

          Apart from Winner, I am loving SHINee, Highlight, and FTisland- I am more into variety so I love anyone who is hilarious on variety shows…

            Ahh I doubt a WINNER comeback will happen so soon. But yes, this is the longest promotion a YG group has ever had! So I’ll just milk everything I could out of it until it last ^^

            And hey. I also love shinee! I’ve been a fan since 2010. Basically, I love all 2nd gen kpop groups, actually. So Highlight and FT too. You can never doubt 2nd Generation idols and their variety skills :3

          I think I will have a lot of things to look at after they stop with their promotions.. I haven’t seen any of the web-dramas they did.. I heard they weren’t great but I am definitely gonna check them out…

          Fan since 2010! That’s a long time! Posting a SHINee song (Ring Ding Dong) here got me a wonderful list of recommendations and since then I am slowly making my way through the world of kpop… [If you want to see them later, here is the link to the page- http://www.dramabeans.com/members/obsessedmuch/?acpage=6%5D

          SHINee is 9 years old now and FTisland is 10! But I am loving that I have such a collection of songs/ talent to discover and fall in love with..

          Yup, all of them are brilliant at variety- along with the SuJu members- I am not in love with their songs per se, but I am in love with Heechul!

            I saw the list and really long lmao.

            For real, Heechul is everywhere~ lmao. but really, what’s not to love about him? He changed a lot and I could say that I like him better these days, too. ^^ I still remember when SUJU was active. (I suddenly felt so old)

            9 to 10 years of memories is a lot to catch up with tho omg. And they were not a lot videos and clips online from back then, so good luck with that haha. The good old youtube is not yes famous during those times and if you are able to find some rn, you have to suffer through 360p videos at most. Because that’s the largest you were allowed to upload then.

            And WINNER webdramas~ Honestly, yeah they’re not that great. The acting fairs from so so to decent, but really it’s the plot that mostly turns the mood down. But Seungyoon is the best so far. I recommend his wdrama with Sandara Park, We Broke Up. And idk if you are aware of them? The parodies they make are awesome, too lmao

            I just started being active here in DB just recently, I mostly do my fangirling on tumblr, so I didn’t know that fans post kpop related stuffs in their fan wall. So when I stumble upon gifs, I was quite surprised.

            2nd Gen Idols is love! Sad that most of them are either disbanding (2ne1 NO) and inactive, but the memories I had of them were precious TTvTT BEG and After School will forever be in my old school kpop jam

          Kpop gifs are funnier than kdrama ones. I don’t know why (maybe because they’re often from variety shows?), but the facial expressions are always so on point haha. I hope you start posting more here, old kpop stuff is always appreciated!

          I mostly love watching 2nd gen idols on variety, my listening is often more sporadic and independent of groups and gens. Except for FTI and Winner. The amount of listening connected to them is ridiculous :b

          Also – agree with you on those webdramas! I loved We Broke Up and think it’s actually really good, but Love For a Thousand More is, errr, questionable?

          Btw if I don’t reply back to any possible replies/comments of yours for about a week, it’s because it’s midnight here now and I have a week-long exam starting tomorrow and don’t know if I might have to go on a DB ban until it’s finished lol.

    I saw this too today! It’s awesome πŸ˜€ I like how they just seem like friends having fun, it really makes it so different from other dance vids. Not that other kpop groups don’t look like they’re having fun. It’s just usually about showing off crazy choreo and dance skills, whereas Winner’s ends with Hoonie almost qualifying for the Ministry of Silly Walks lol πŸ˜›

      Hoonie could very well try to become the President of Ministry of Silly Walks by now πŸ˜›

      Other groups seem to have choreographed-fun as opposed to just something normal… I mean I am sure this was also choreographed but they just have a degree of natural swag and laid-backness which translates well on screen (all except Jinwoo that is, but he looks so cute trying to look all cool that I always end up liking his natural awkwardness)

      I do think it might be because they are small in number- 4 members make it easy to have a sense of comfort, but when the numbers increase to 7, something like a power- struggle becomes evident….

      I understand Shopping King Louis could be a hit or miss for many because the Louis character could easily get on the nerves initially. But I really loved Louis- Bok Shil together.. They were the best romance of 2016 for me, even more than the Weightlifting Couple. Also, it does get better after the 2nd episode.. πŸ˜€

    That’s so cool and funny, though!

        I felt the show went in wrong direction. They should not have gone to India gate, all they had to do is go to any big malls and did a song there. Am pretty sure 3 out of 10 would have identified them.
        The target is urban youth. They completely missed their target audience, I felt.

        Making Exo take a pic and insisting he did not do it right was really hilarious 😂😂
        I was wondering what curses would a exo famgirl be screaming at that uncle!

          The show definitely took many wrong decisions- specially at the conception/planning stage… For starters, just a heads-up to the fans would have been worth it! Like not personal messages or anything but maybe an update on KBS World Youtube page.. India is such a big country and fans are really scattered… You can’t just randomly reach a city and then generalize it by saying that there are NO fans at all…

          I however do not think the mall thing would have worked. I am from Delhi and I have personally never met a kpop fan… But then again it is not as if I know everyone in Delhi :P.. What about you? Is kpop famous in your state?

          Another problem might be that they wouldn’t have been working with a good budget.. Random singing in malls doesn’t work in India as it might become a law and order problem. I think, one has to make special arrangements first.. Mall singing however would have helped them make many new fans for sure though πŸ™‚

          I suffered from so much second-hand embarrassment on Suho’s behalf! πŸ˜› Exo fangirls would sure have been screaming! πŸ˜› I am sure SHINee fangirls would have been proud though! The only fan to identify them all was a Minho fan if I remember correctly..

            Actually I read couple of blogs on that.
            Fans actually knew about it and there were many who were waiting in airport overnight. But they were under strict orders to not get attention of the stars and also to not follow them or approach them. Its like the production team forced the situations to create a impression that no one knows them. I will try to find the blog and link you. The fans sounded really upset.

            And more than kpop, I feel kdramas are more common. A person may not know all members of exo but in a mall, chances of someone guessing they might be Korean is very high.

            Well they went to Yash Raj Films, am sure they could have figured out a way to sing in malls. We do have events happening every weekend or other.

            Am not a huge kpop fan. Whatever kpop I know is because of dramas, but there is a fb group of about 1000 members just for my state! And they are not casual fans, they are very serious where they type in Korean, discuss about kpop dance classes and meet ups. I was surprised myself. And there have been korean meet ups occurring every six months in Chennai at the official korean cultural centre!

            When its so much in Chennai, am pretty sure there would have been so much more in Mumbai and these people just didn’t even look into those possibilities. They wanted to give off the impression that India is a bad market. And if not for that SHINee fan, am sure all stars would have thought the same!

            They could have done something great with the show and promoted Hallyu. After coming across all these news articles, I feel the Korean popularity in India is way bigger than I thought to be. It can never be mainstream, India is way too diverse for that. But it already has a very strong cult factor which growing day by day.

          Woah! really? I wonder why? I mean it was the perfect opportunity to explore and enter such a big market! And if exploited fully, India would be a more lucrative destination than Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore etc combined! Sounds like a missed opportunity… I might have vested interest in saying this though.. because once kpop enters, I am hoping that Korean actors start conducting fan- meetings here πŸ˜›

          Kdramas are definitely more popular. As I mentioned, I haven’t met any kpop fans, but I have met many people who love kdramas and have been watching them for years….

          The Korean Cultural Centre here in Delhi also seems to be a popular spot for meetups but I have never tried… I once went to a function organized by them at a mall, and there was a group performing some b-boying moves and this group of girls standing right at the front were singing along in Korean and screaming ‘oppa’ at the top of their voices πŸ˜€ I thought they must be the students who were studying Korean as the Cultural Centre πŸ˜›

          Oh I just remembered that the Centre had a huge banner wishing Jackson of GOT7 on his birthday… So yeah, I am sure there is a big, as yet undiscovered by me, group of kpop fans in Delhi too…

          I am mostly a kdrama fan myself, but have just started discovering some kpop songs… Still not a fan though πŸ™‚

          The first link makes me FURIOUS! And frankly I don’t understand the reasoning behind such a move! It just screams STUPIDITY in all it’s moves! The fans had every right to be annoyed and hurt… To not be able to see their idols is one thing but to be denied existence even when you are a large group of people must suck! I wonder why the Consulate General agreed to it…

          Also, what did they gain by such a move? The show doesn’t look like a hit and they lost the perfect opportunity to further relationships between the two country! I don’t even understand it from the business POV! I mean you are basically losing out on TONS of money!!

          Also, I really didn’t kpop was so famous here… Kpop Festival finale is happening in Delhi this time with a kpop group ‘Lucente’ debuting in India and judging the finale of the contest.. I wish I could go check it out but I have exams coming..

      It was on the news article about Kim Yoo Jung being offered a lead role in School 2017. My comment-

      Ah my first thought was NOOOOO… I would rather they take some low- profile actors or entirely new faces.. We need new blood! Plus, I thought the School series was famous for taking rookies and turning them into household names anyway…

      I know School 2015 was a little different in that regard with KSH but look what they did to that show! Where was all the teenage angst expected from a School series?? I love romance like the next girl but they butchered it! Doesn’t mean I didn’t like it, but I didn’t love it like I loved School 2013..

      And yes on the comparison front… If KYJ takes this, then there would be just 1 more show where she would be compared with KSH.

      But, well, whoever is cast, would still watch the show with high expectations!

          Oh I am on a self-imposed kdrama ban because of some exams in June.. But I have a feeling that resolve might just break today!

          Nam Ji Hyun + Ji Chang Wook + Choi Tae Joon + I Remember You writer were temptation enough as it is but the screenshots and GIFs are just adding to it even more!

        yes march, i have a huge report to write ( at 80 pages right now, the end is near) and well kdrama’s distract me since i need to read subs to understand so i just stalk dramabeanies fan wall instead most of the time πŸ™‚ and watch some english series (mostly on the background when i’m doing lots of repetitive stuff) πŸ™‚ so just a bit longer, focus on the exams and then you are done! also watching MVs on youtube of your favorite series (all the cutesy scenes) is a good way to get you drama fix without it being too much of a distraction!

          I have only seen 3 Doctors in action-
          Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, and Matt Smith..

          Loved, really loved, the last 2… Loved them so much that I stopped watching after Capaldi took the role… I still want to catch up with the show but then kdramas happened and whatever free time I do have is usually dedicated to all things K now! πŸ˜›

          I don’t really know many British actors (having been fed on Indian and American movies/television) but surprisingly my favourites are all British- like Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Grant, and Eddie Redmayne…

          When I first reached that level, I really thought that JB and GF might have playing a drinking game while deciding on the names and must have gone increasingly drunk with names for each level- culminating in Goblin’s Underpants πŸ˜›

            That’s it? Haha, so I figured that much, but I’m scratching my head over it because it seems like leveling DOWN, rather than UP, no? Unless it’s ’cause it’s The Goblin’s underpants. Idk. jb and gf should totally put together a guide to all the Beanie levels and a description for each. Your theory of them coming up with these levels while drunk is very plausible! Haha.

          I second the need for a guide to explain all the levels! But I don’t think there is much thought behind the levels other than the requirement of the names to be funny!

            Oh man haha I’m just trying to imagine us watching something together. Me, who often watches things without reacting at all (I promise I’m not all rock though, honest), and you being all Seungyoonie haha
            I think it’d be a great combination πŸ˜€

            Also I don’t think I am ever going to ship kpop members! It just doesn’t make sense! I do however laugh at all the fangirls going crazy imagining what members do behind cameras.. Specially in case of SHINee where it seems almost every member is paired up! And then the fanservice they provide does hint that they know what fangirls want- Exhibit A- Jonghyun and Taemin being a little too up close and personal πŸ˜›

          @sicarius, awww and here I was so happy that I managed to do that, why did you have to go and ruin it by saying you were kidding? *sobs in corner*

          Or that’s what I would do, if I was a bubbly Kdrama heroine, but since I’m just a bubbly real-life person, Imma just be over here grumping about how my aegyo was looked down on πŸ˜‰

            @obsessedmuch I would never ship real people romantically unless they were like… actually dating. Otherwise it’s a pretty big no-go area for me, because I think it’s inappropriate. I’ll ship friendships to the cows come home though. I love strong friendships haha

            @kaybee (it’s a secret but you did actually melt me a little, and even if it’s just typed your aegyo did make me smile a lot πŸ˜‰ haha- but we just pretend it didn’t work, that’s how tsundere goes, right? πŸ˜€ )

          @sicarius yeah, I agree, shipping people irl just feels so wrong to me. Finding an actual couple adorable together is quite different from wishing that two random people you don’t even know end up together lol.

          D’aaaww, now I’m happy again πŸ˜‰ You tsundere are quite a fickle and cunning people πŸ˜›

            And then fans are convinced their ship and only their ship is real (never mind that there are you know, 20 other ships with fans who all the believe that) and I’m like ‘mmmm no nope please get out of your delusional fantasy, this is not the correct behaviour’

            If I were a drama hero I’d be getting a lot of hate right now for being so fickle hahaha

      Replying here cuz the other threads are a lil long!

      Haven’t you heard of the Minwoo (Mino and Jin woo) ship- it has been there since they made that cake together in Win Tv! (Or was that someone else making the cake with Jinwoo?- I forgot already!)… I like that Winner members are just naturally very affectionate (as friends/ bros) and it doesn’t seem put-upon to me!

        In my experience… there is a ship for every possible pairing in every group… There are always the one’s that are more prominent in fanbases than others ofc though.
        This still gives SEVENTEEN a possible 78 ships… which is madness.

          Woah! That! Poor kids! It would be so hard to keep a tab of who is shipped with whom! πŸ˜›
          I would love to understand how a rabid fangirl’s mind works.

          And yes, I have never shipped any couple in real life! It just does not make sense. And like you, i too have shipped friendships- I was a major KWB- LJS off-
          screen bromance fan! I also love Jang Hyuk- Kim Jong Kook- Cha Tae Hyun stories, or basically any friendship story with Cha Tae Hyun in it! And now I friendship-ship the Crude Play boys!

            I don’t think I do… seems like a terrifying place tbh O.o

            Friendships are just so refreshing and healthier, and longer lasting even (eyyy spot the cynic) and… in that kind of world, real? Like romance shipping with people you don’t know is just… wtf worthy, but the friendships are seen and real and genuine so… (and in writing too, a well written friendship can often be stronger than a love plot line)

          Yup well- written friendships often get to me more than romances!
          Mainly because they are more realistic in today’s society. Kdrama love is hard to come by in real life (I too am a cynic), but heart-warming friendships still exist! πŸ™‚

            Exactly!
            (I mean, I am both a cynic and a romantic- which I believe we have previously discussed and have in common. But my cynic is more apparent today)

            Yeah I don’t really want to know the inner workings of a rabid fan either O.O

            I’m probably mostly a cynic too. Or maybe just a realist? πŸ˜›

            Friendships being so compelling is probably one of the main reasons every drama fan loves a good bromance. Well, that and the fact that it usually happens between two good-looking guys which they can then ship, but let’s just pretend it’s mainly because of the friendship πŸ˜‰

          Different days, different facets of our personalities. That’s totally human! πŸ˜€
          Did we discuss being romantic? I totally am one… We have had so many interesting conversations over the course of last month! I will forever be thankful to SHINee’s ‘Ring Ding Dong’ which got us started in the first place!

            Ah SHINee… it’s all your fault SHINee hahaha

            I saw something ridiculous comment yesterday wondering i a Korean rapper had a personality disorder because of all the different facets to him… and I was just like… ‘no, you idiot, humans are complex, often seemingly contradictory beings. That’s what makes us interesting. It doesn’t mean we all have personality disorders!!!’
            I think one of the best things about humans that man can have is when they have so many different aspects of themselves that should’ve fit together, but do and break stereotypes left, right and centre.

        Oh gosh, I completely forgot about that. They really do seem very relaxed around each other. A lot of groups seem to be more of a business relationship (and why wouldn’t they tbh?), but some groups really seem like siblings or friends.

          The sibling/friend like groups are my favourites because SUPPORT SYSTEMS and BROMANCES and FAMILY… even if they’re celebrities who will never know me if it seems like they have a support system, that’s encouraging to see in such a crazay world.

            YES! Agreed. I want the people who make me happy with their good music, movies etc to be happy in return for the joy they bring me πŸ˜› And obviously also just because every person deserves to be loved and it warms my heart whenever I see two people care for each other, no matter in what kind of relationship ^^

            Btw, this comment-thread is confusing me so much right now lol and I’m about to eat soon and not feeling too well atm, so if I disappear from all the long convos the three of us are engaged in atm, then that’s why and I may not return to those convos, because… sleep— family obligations— life..
