Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

Romance is a Bonus Book was overall an ok drama…a little draggy towards the end but I really liked this OST. I’m gonna miss Lee JongSuk oppa these next 18 months…

Just last friday was international women\’s day and we are halfway through women\’s history month and the fact that all this kpop news blew up in the past couple of weeks is so ironic. I want nothing but justice for all the victimized women who were degraded and pimped out. I am disappointed in how evil and heartless some of these kpop men have turned out to be. I always disliked some of these guys anyway upon first impression. I also officially dropped Evergreen kdrama today on mydramalist as I had placed it on hold many months ago. However, there was something about that guy that I never liked. I follow the other 3 members of CNBlue on IG except for him as I never did warm up to him. Anyway I never followed Seungri or Big Bang closely either but I do enjoy some of their songs. I have been heavily disappointed by the immorality of artists I enjoyed in the past though and that makes it hard to listen to their music ever again. It depends on the situation of course though…not all scandals are the same. As everyone has said this is beyond scandal territory and has gone into serious crime territory. To my friends who are VIP, I sympathize with you. To all fans who are let down, y’all will be ok I promise! Just take a break from their music and then decide what to do about your fan status.

I have to say I felt sick to my stomach reading some of those translated texts. I hope that all this can help lead to revolutionize better treatment of women. Dealing with men who are disrespectful of women is honestly an exhausting and scary experience. I happened to run today into a coworker who legitimately scares me to be around with because of the comments I have heard him make about women. I did not sit quietly when he tried to make inappropriate comments towards me though a couple of years ago and stood up for myself and explained to him that I do not tolerate such behavior. We are not to tolerate such behaviors from anyone and men like these should definitely be reported and be made to face the consequences of their actions or in some cases inactions. I lose respect for men who sit on the sidelines and prove to be weak by not speaking up when they hear or see such awful behaviors too. We should all try to honor and respect each other as best we can…as Jesus taught treat others how you want to be treated.

    The whole thing is disgusting, and frankly I don’t know how to feel. I was a fan of Jung Joon-young (although in hindsight, there were always cracks in his persona) and I love 2 Days 1 Night – it’s really difficult to change my perception of him so easily, to accept what a horrifying subhuman thing he was this whole time. I suppose it’s a good thing that this issue is forcing everyone to remember that the people we watch on TV shouldn’t be taken completely at face-value.

It’s my bias Kai’s birthday! I fell in love with kpop because of EXO-CBX and that led me to stan EXO. Kai had caught my attention since way before though with his dancing. I’m still mesmerized by his dancing and offstage sweetness. I haven’t really watched any of his acting projects other than I finally watched his web drama Choco Bank during the holidays and well let’s say I am not really a fan of web dramas because it feels like we get no real plot or character development. I like my 16+ hours shows best ok? But he was absolutely gorgeous in Choco Bank anyway haha

Happy New Year 2019 y’all! I’m back at work today and not very happy about it but at the same time I was doing nothing productive at home haha. I got into kpop in 2018 and didn’t watch as many dramas but these are my favorites from the ones I did watch.

I’m Not a Robot – Yoo Seungho is a very gifted actor, Chae Soobin is so likable here, their moments of angst and cute were so touching to me <3
Mother – I had never seen a show tackle the topic of motherhood so intensely, it went deep into the topic. Very layered and well rounded characters and a memorable villain.
What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim – A mostly fun romcom but it did drag a bit towards the end. Park-Park couple are beautiful the whole show and very cute together.
100 Days Prince – DO is funny and cute in this and has good chemistry with the female lead. Was a fun romcom that I really enjoyed this past fall.

From currently airing I am watching Boyfriend and Memories of Alhambra. I’m enjoying Boyfriend more but I do need to catch up on Memories of Alhambra as I’m only on episode 5.

I finally finished Mr. Sunshine (had been putting it off cause figured the ending was gonna be painful) and my favorite character DongMae reminded me of this Big Bang song, especially his final speech

    Aaahh… I really want to watch the vlive, but my internet is so damn frustrating!!

    Anw, what is(are) your fave songs in the album?

      So now that I’ve had the weekend to listen to it, Tempo is my absolute favorite! It is an amazing title track and I loved it at first listen. I really like the MV as well which is great cause I didn’t like the last few EXO MVs except for “Electric Kiss”.

      My other favorites so far are “Ooh La La La”, “24/7”, and “Bad Dream”
      What do you think of the album so far? πŸ™‚

        I think the album overall is great… My only complain is the lack of upbeat songs, that’s all.
        My fave songs by ranks:
        1. Oasis – the best song by EXO ever!
        2. Tempo – both version
        3. Smile on my face

        Honorable mention: 24/7 and Bad Dream… LOL 😆

          Ah yeah I was actually initially disappointed with the songs except for the title track which was love at first listen and I too enjoy the chinese version, Tempo is such a good song seriously…but the more I listen to the album the more I am appreciating it.

          Oasis is pretty darn good, I just haven’t listened to it too much and Smile on My Face is quite nice too, and hehe you have good taste in songs πŸ˜‰

I\’m officially subscribed to Kocowa now that DF (I can\’t spell it out cause it\’s too sad) cruelly abandoned us kdrama fans. Nothing currently airing really has my attention though…

    I popped back on DramaBeans to whine about how agonizingly slow the subs are on Viki. I subscribed to Viki as I already had Kocowa. If I hadn’t paid the year sub already I would drop Viki. I miss DramaFever as much as I hate AT&T, with the fire of a thousand burning suns.

    AT&T is shutting down all of their niche streaming services. Film Structure was given notice of being shut down toward the end of November.

      How long are Viki subs taking currently? I haven’t been watching anything on there recently.

        Volunteers do most of the subs so it depends on how popular the drama is. If it’s not popular it takes a long time. DramaFever had fast subs but lacked the nuance Viki subs have. However, when it takes a week to get subs for a drama, it makes me lose interest.

    Did they do that on purpose? To hype us beyond reason for the newest episode? They didn’t need to – I’m already obsessed enough…

People on Reddit are sharing this link about someone who reached out to the Dramafever higher ups and maybe AT&T is to blame? https://dramacurrent.com/2018/10/16/what-happened-to-dramafever/
