Beanie level: Entertainer-in-training

I finished 365: Repeat The Year!!!! 🎉🎉

In short: I loved it a lot and this was perhaps one of the most satisfying kdrama endings!

If I were to elaborate just a little: This show wasn’t without it’s plot-holes and stupid moments, but overall this ended so well that I am willing to overlook the small inconsistencies. Funny enough, I was going to have sth completely diff to say if the last 10 mins of ep 12 hadn’t happened cuz till then ep 12 seemed like the weakest ep of the entire show, but it just did a total U turn and I ended up being REALLY satisfied with it all!

I loved that the drama had twists left till the last moment! The actors were gooooood, not just the main leads, but everyone! I also loved that it was just 12 eps long and didn’t stretch the plotline. It was a compact and smart plot!

I have loved Nam Ji Hyun since SKL and she came through on my expectations from her. Lee Joon-Hyuk, on the other hand, was a revelation. I haven’t seen him as the main lead before and don’t honestly remember him from shows I have watched (City Hunter, Are You Human?, Secret Garden) but I finally SEE him and I am gonna check out whatever project he takes up next!

Anyway, all in all, a show to remember!

    I’m happy that you enjoyed it!!! Lee Joon Hyuk was funny and amazing in A Poem A Day. Inthink he was a prosecutor in City Hunter but I don’t remember him in Secret Garden. 😅

      I’m such a big fan of LJH.
      Loved him whether he plays the good guy, the not so good guy, the bad guy. He chooses so different roles, I admire him for that. He’s amazing in Stranger, Designated Survivor, A Poem A Day, Naked Fireman, City Hunter (I was so angry with his ending), or Are you Human too?
      Yes… I’m not objective with him… not a little bit 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Yaayyy!! Happy to have found another beanie who loved 365 as much as I did. And you are so right about the ending! Its one of the most satisfying ones out of all the dramas i have watched, I loved it so much I have rewatched that scene quite a few times hehe XD

    I’ve just finished this too. Such a satisfying thriller. It’s been so long since the the last time I watched one. I’m glad the production team know enough to choose shorter eps count instead of dragging all the plots to fill in the rest of the eps.

For all that I bitch abt The King: The Eternal Monarch, ep11 was actually good!

Kim Go-eun finaly got to show off her acting chops, so did Min Ho! Do I still see plot holes? Yes! But, this was the 1st time I didnt sleep in the middle of the ep! In fact the ep was over n I still wanted more!

P.S. I am not used to DB slow posting anymore huhuhu! Hence the spam! Mianhae. I will re- learn.

This is so true! We grown ups do need compliments from time to time!

I loved that little smile he had at the end when he realized that he is falling for her hehhe..

This particular scene made me soooooo emo! It’s such a sad reality of life and I am experiencing this right now in my real life πŸ™

P.S Also, again… I wish we could upload videos directly here!

        likewise, they’re starting to talk about upcoming retirement and other affliction linked to their age, being away from them is hard sometimes, I can’t even help them πŸ™

          Mine are retired and have one or two ailments… I live with them so I see the increasing pains… But they are quite okay with it and say that it’s part and parcel of life

    This scene took me back to the time when my mom got sick and eventually passed away. The reverse concept of guardian is so on point.

      It must have been so tough for you!
      I guess all of us would relate with this scene, be it thinking abt past, living in the present, or looking into the future πŸ™

        My mum’s passing was what got me into kdrama – escapism during a very long griefing period.

    i think he knows too! he’s a smart guy, and he was suspicious of Jun Wan showing up with snow crabs – the thing Ik Sun wanted to eat. He could’ve connected the dots..

    Yes. In this episode I was sure he’d figured it out. He came back in several times just to torture them for his own entertainment.

    I think he knows. He was clearly trolling them when he came back to put Woo-joo in bed. He could have just texted them to do it. Also, Ik-jun knows all.

I can’t upload videos directly here πŸ™
So doing so from my twitter account!
I just started ep 3 of Oh My Baby and I had to pause to capture this scene!
Please show, continue being this great!

        you’re welcome 🙂
        I’m fine, enjoying commute time that became free time on DB (and more drama eps x) ) since I’m working from home (but don’t know when I’ll have to go to the office again… let’s enjoy in the meantime ^^’)

        hope you’re still well too 😀

          Hahaha I don’t have work right now because of the lockdown so I am free-er.. Hence the increase in drama watching and I even ended up coming here on DB and posting!

            “I even ended up coming here on DB and posting” lol so seeing you here means you have plenty of free time ^^’
            (that’s kind of the same : me being on DB during the week hehe)

            enjoy the free time, hoping things will get back to normal little by little πŸ™‚

Ending of ep 8 of 365:Repeat the Year!!!!!!!!!
I still trust Hyung Joo though but now I suspect that cutie Bogummy lookalike inspector in the squad.

The show is amazing! Like even after 8 episodes, there is no lag in pace and the mystery is as strong as it was in ep 1, if not actually stronger!

Gotta admit though, SeRi\’s character and her story scared me a bit! The acting had me shook and a bit creeped out!

Cant wait to get to the end of the mystery. And hehhehe a little gloating here- I dont have to wait a whole week for the next episodes 😎

Will they even have scenes together though lol????

OMFG never did I ever imagine that I will see Korean actors speaking Hindi!! And this is a good attempt at speaking it! Also, so hilarious!

I wasn’t gonna watch this show but now I am tempted by the “pure vegetarian chicken noodles” 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Now that I have logged in to DB, I might as well post a lil drama update:

Live Watching:

Hospital Playlist. I lurrrrrrv it! I love all the characters and actors. I don\’t think this is as great as this director\’s previous works but I feel satisfied at the end of each ep and that says a lot!

The King Eternal Monarch. It\’s not great, but it\’s not as bad as it could be. I am enjoying it enough despite the plot holes and the excessive PPL!

Oh My Baby. It\’s a Jang Nara show. Enough said.

Also started:
365: Repeat the Year. I love it till now!

Are you guys watching these? Or anything other than these which is interesting? Recommend me some good ones please!

    Oh I also finished watching Extra-curricular! I really liked it even if it was crazzzyyyy but the last 2 eps weren’t as good as the rest of the show.

    I’m onboard with Hospital Playlist and love it! I’m not enjoying Eternal PPL as much as I’d hoped but WDH is shining in his dual roles. I just started When My Love Blooms and hope it’s not too melo for me.

      Bhahhaha Eternal PPL! WDH is doing great indeed.

        A couple who fall in love in college, then meet again in their 40’s. It has wonderful actors and the beanies watching seem to really like it so far.

        2
        1

          That sounds a bit like this old-ish drama I watched where the couple meets at 3 different point in their lives! I think it was called My Love Eun Dong.

    Muchie!! How are you??

    I’m live-watching Hospital Playlist too and it’s like a hot chicken noodle soup on a cold rainy day. With the restrictions in place now, their friendship gives me so much comfort but it makes me lonely too as I miss my friends terribly.

    I’ve started Hyena and it’s looking good so far.

      Heya! I am good, thanks! How have you been?

      Aww that is a perfect description and yesss, same! I miss meeting my friends too!

      I did start Hyena but somehow never finished it. It seemed fun but not what I was in a mood for at that time..

My fangirling for Seo In Guk found a theme song!!! I didn’t even know there was a whole song dedicated to him!!😱

Did you guys know about this song??

Also hello! Long time!

    So cute! I wonder if she really likes him? this could be every fangirl’s theme song.

        Thankfully the song is slow enough to not need a choreography. I’ll just take a leaf out of WINNER’s dance style and simply throw around attitude rather than actually dance 🤣🤣

I bid goodbye to one just 2 weeks back and now I have to do that all over again tomorrow. This one is gonna hurt even more cuz he is my bias.

Happy 3 years to this new DB platform!

A lot has changed since 2017 when we were all so excited and nervous for the changes to come hahha. I don’t come here as often anymore but I will always be really fond of this little corner on the internet which was almost like a home for me!

I just went back to my early posts from this day in 2017 and I miss my old self lol. There was a lot of Seo In Guk, memes and my first brush with kpop.

Anyway it’s funny I did this walk down memory lane when WINNER is doing the same in their latest MV.

Have a great day ahead beanies!

    It will always be our home!
    And I try not to leave this home for ling because it can’t afford losing more Beanies!
    When I read recaps of old dramas I feel sad because there are a lot of our friends who forgot about this place.. stopped coming..
    And sometimes when there is a post saying” hello Beanies! It has been like ages since the last time I signed in” I can’t control my tears.. for me these kinda posts are the definition of happiness

    5
    1

      Awww… True that!
      I just haven’t been posting as much as I used to before. I used to practically live on the site and old beanies would probably remember that.. I dunno what changed, probably many factors… I don’t watch as many kdramas anymore and if I do, I don’t feel like spazzing abt them but quietly enjoying them… Plus I am too into one kpop group and I don’t want to bore others with constant posts abt them hehe… Plus real life.

      Ahhh but I will always come back here. No plans on leaving, specially now that my WINNER boys are enlisting πŸ™ and so I will have more free time lol

      And what have you been upto lately? Back to kdramas or still watching Cdramas?

      Hope u have a great day as well!

          Social distancing is actually fun! I have a legit excuse now to stay at home! πŸ˜›

          But also I am at home WITH family so my drama watching has dramatically reduced. I would anyway have been unable to focus on dramaland right now what with album release, Jinwoo’s enlistment and now Hoony’s tomorrow πŸ™

          We’ve been under lockdown for a month as well and it got extended till 3rd May!
          And yeah we really are lucky to have the amenities and not be suffering like others are doing.

          I’ve finished Someday or One day as well! πŸ™‚ I haven’t watched it’s alternate ending released on YT yet though. Watching Hospital Playlist (I love it) and When the weather is fine (but at a very slow pace as and when I have time)
