Beanie level: Entertainer-in-training

I am clearly in a go-wherever-your-heart-leads-you phase. I mentioned Lee Hyun Woo and now I am re-watching Liar and his Lover. Liar Ninjas are you still here?

          They were adorable! And I missed them so much! I also obvously loved the Crude Play gang minus the second lead whose scenes now I am skipping cuz he ruined the show with his rl behaviour.

            Like, I’ve never seen an OTP so solid after they get together. Plus every character is so nuanced! The second lead was such a killjoy, urgh! I especially really liked Leader Shi Hoon(?) !!

    He was just discharged from the military, literally, yesterday, but heโ€™s signed onto a musical, so I think dramaland & chungmuro will have to wait a bit =(

Guys! You NEED to listen to them sing in this video. They are amazing! And they are still killing the charts!
(It’s unfair how they haven’t won any award despite being no1 since the album release on so many Korean charts! I guess music show wins are more dependent on fandoms)

Backstreet Boys are back ya all! They are coming in the form of Winner kekkeke

    only realizing now that the album will come out when I’m away from home, will only be back on DB on Saturday or even later if I avoid spoilers of Njttw waiting for the subs ๐Ÿ™

      Ohhhh I will wait for your thoughts on the mini once you get back! Will also take care not to post any NJTTW spoilers till you have watched it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

        aw~ Muchie I didn’t intend to prevent you from posting ๐Ÿ™ . You can post when you want about njttw , other Beanies might also post about it too . I don’t know if subs will be out quickly or not and if I’ll be in a “no spoiler” mood and will come on DB only after watching the ep , or might be on DB despite the spoilers risk ^^’

        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™‚

        3
        2

          Nahhhh! you aren’t preventing me from anything, don’t worry! ❣️
          I will most probably be in a new album phase and will be spamming album related stuff hehhe… Plus NJTTW will be around Diwali festival season and my last day at work! So I won’t be rushing to watch it raw hehhe…

          Oooh yay! Hope wherever you are during that time, you have fun! <3

          1
          1

            (err I forgot to mention it’s work-related so the fun part will only be when I’ll watch an ep or two in the evening if I’m not too tired ^^)

            sending lots of love 😘😘😘 , I’ll check the album spam with pleasure 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!

        OMG “looking at a girl and being astonished by her beauty and going โ€œOMGโ€”

        3. nah I prefer suits better =P , to each their own ^^

        5. I listened to air right after your post ๐Ÿ™‚ , maybe winner windy songs is my preference 😆

        6. had to google “innuendos”😅, I’m improving & training my English with dramas, variety shows and DB everyday (pff such a lame excuse to watch something on a daily basis 😆)

          Hahhahhah now I miss Xiumin!

          3. I luuurv WINNER in suits but they do that so often that I want sth else

          5. Lol… well there is Raining and It rains too. Winner and weather themes go well together

          6. Kekkekeke well I am glad to add a word to your vocab! (its the perfect excusee! :D)

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”

22
22

    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.

        1
        2

          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.
