Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

Know what? I didn’t do a single thing today on a lovely day off. This is my light lunch of fresh mozzarella, garden basil, and an ambrosia salad with blueberries. Life is simple for a day at least~

Law of the Jungle is one of those shows whose concept is hard to explain. Idols/celebs go to remote and often dangerous places in the world and try to survive. Leader Byungman is the heart, soul, and brains of every team. This series is in the lost jungle of Thailand and, in a nutshell, the team of 5 or 6 people has to spend the first 24 hours without their fearless leader, Byungman. So, in pictures, here’s the bumbling effort they made to build a shelter. (Pic 1) – the team floats in on a thatched roof raft. (Pic 2, 3) – the team rips off the thatched roof and sets it up as a shelter. The raft remains on sand, untouched. So I’m thinking, “Surely someone will drag the solid raft over to create a safe sleeping surface. After all, it’s in one piece and ready made for the situation.” But no. Not one of them thinks to do that. (Pic 4) Next day, Byungman shows up and starts splitting bamboo to create a sleeping surface. (Pic 5) Then, someone sitting on the raft says, “Oh, we can use this. I didn’t see it [to use] before.” (Pic 6, 7) Raft used for survival shelter thanks to Byungman. Five people stranded in the jungle and not a single solitary one of them thinks to use the already made raft as a safe surface? It’s like they never watched Law of the Jungle before. Remind me not to sign up for this reality show. It’s a disaster waiting to happen every single week!

    you know what i am curious about.. how much of this show is farce..
    i wish people who live or know about any of these places could throw some light

    As per knetz some solid proof have been given over the years that this show is an ultimate super high level of farce (beyond what you can imagine)

      I’m fascinated by the disconnect between a lot of the celebs on the show for stuff like traipsing through the wild and/or swimming at night in the ocean to find food. Who knows how much is staged. Still , it’s a weird concept all around no matter how you look at it.

        he he..
        but i guess you are right to the extent that difficult or not, it is just fun to experience weirdness and “wilderness”

    There was an episode with Yugeom from GOT7 where they were building a “shelter” son the beach and because of storm they couldn’t sleep. The next day everybody was exhausted and when they were looking for food, few hundred meters there was a half cave with ancient paintings which was a perfect place to build a sleeping place. Why they don’t consider fruit as a nutritious food. Just a coconut has so much proteins as any meet. You can have enough energy with just fruit and some roots.

    Who will go to Patagonia to Law in the Jungle in fall? What you can find to eat while trekking on Glacier Grey in the national park of Torres del Paine? In pampas you could catch some guanacos but you have to be a great hunter to do so. I’m sure if they had caught one they would eat it in one go and don’t think about the days to follow.

Finished Her Private Life. Kim Jae Wook is a hottie good kisser and romantic and even cries at all the right times. I also really like Park Min Yong and want to be a fangirl and a curator just like her! Really, the siblings-not-siblings, long lost brothers through no one’s fault, brother who died and the shock amnesia until poof*! and memories flood back, moms who know too much sadness and fathers who paddle in the background over regrets, ambition, friendships, bromnces and love triangles – this drama did all that and more and I loved the feels. But can I just say this? The paintings, and I mean all of the paintings, I hated them! So much for art and gosh, imma head for NYC at this rate and make my splashdown in the art world cuz if that’s where Ryan Gold (love, love, love him) hailed from as a bona fide artist then I’m on the next plane for the Big Apple. Rant over, I’m okay – really, just couldn’t let that go, y’all.

    I liked the mom’s paintings but not Ryan’s. They were kind of creepy.

Look at the fans lined up to welcome Kyuhyun home – military discharge! Now that he is done, all of Super Junior have completed their service. {{{{{{waving}}}}}}

    Sigh…. A guy just won’t ever get a quiet discharge, no matter how much it’s requested, when you’re a part of the Korean entertainment industry, Will he?? ☹️☹️☹️☹️🙄🙄🙄🙄

      Really, the crowd (mob) was huge. Kyuhuun looked typically thin in his face as do most at their discharge.

Wall-to-wall.

So the mis-ter-understanding. At first I was annoyed that the guys were talking for Deok Mi as she hid behind Eun Ki. But then I can accept the K-drama plot that Eun Ki was protecting Deok Mi as fangirl She An is My Life and the fact that she didn’t want to be found out. And Eun Ki could use that as an excuse to keep Ryan at bay. Poor Eun Ki’s bro/lover struggle, I feel for him and love that he mustered up the courage to make the distinction even if he didn’t get the proper chance. It’s hard to watch, because I love Deok Mi and Ryan together. Really, it’s an understandable mess up. So the age-old question: can men and women just be friends?

    And Ryan figured out quick why she was hiding. I love this man so much.

    Yeah, men and women can be platonic and friends. Eun gi is not even close to me questioning them being together. He had chance after chance after Ryan arrived. He just pissed that Doek-mi has real desires and they are not for that idol dude.

      PREACH!
      As a real “friend,” he should respect Deok-mi’s feelings and be happy her, even though they might not be directed towards him.

      He had his chance and never took it. But even if he had, we know DK would’ve rejected him anyways. What really holds him back is his own fear, and I think that’s what he’s truly unconsciously mad about.

      I’m dreading that even after she explicitly rejects him, he’ll go on about “not giving up on her.” 😒
      Like, a rejection is not an invitation to prove yourself otherwise. No means NO, but so many k-drama characters, especially men, don’t get it!

        Did you see his face when Ryan called her by her fan girl name. That smugness of bragging about knowing everything about her went out the window. Yep, her man knows and does not care and is crazy about her anyway. He is gonna get desperate and he is gonna guilt her and it’s gonna be BS.

          I have no expectations for him. I bet he’ll be written off by pairing him with Choi Da-in or something cliche like that.

            Doek mi needs to cut him off and only see him at family functions. He does not have any sense of boundaries and that will not change because he has not been told to or allowed.

    Yes. Definitely yes. It’s so sad that many people in the world still think this cannot happen.

        I saw your first one, wandered away from DB wondering how anyone would have such an opinion and the wandered back to DB to see that you were, after all, not an anomaly.

K-drama brain fog: I just realized that I’m confusing in my head two K-dramas that I’m watching simultaneously. When Hyun Jin and Soo-Hyun go to the orphanage, in my confused mind I’m thinking that she will discover the lost boy and I exclaim, “Yay, noona will find out about her brother.” But that scenario is actually from Doctor Prisoner. It’s Na Ra who wants to find out what happened to her brother who went missing in prison. This is what I get for watching episodes two melo/thrillers back to back in one night!

    For this very reason, I cannot and will not ever simultaneously watch 2 dramas that have the same actors in them lol

      The worst part is that the actors aren’t the same! I just think the mood and story lines overlap a bit. I’m an airhead, I guess.
