Beanie level: Jang Geu-rae

After reading the write-up on short dramas, I realize that I haven’t watched any of those (except individualistic one). I am not even sure where to find them.

    The KBS Drama Specials are on YouTube (KBS World channel) – which is how I got into them.

    I don’t subscribe to Netflix, but I believe Memories of Alhambra would be available. (Not my personal favorite but a rec anyway) ^^

      Solomon’s Prejury done. I haven’t found signal on Indian Netflix. Maybe it is restricted in circulation. But rest 2 I will watch.

    My Little Bride – my first Korean movie and I’ve seen it a billion times since. It’s really cute.
    Spellbound – horror rom-com but it’s not all that scary. There’s a few jumps but it’s mostly sweet and funny.
    Finding Mr. Destiny – Gong Yoo. Plays a little with the idea of destiny. Interesting characters.

      I will start from here, I guess, if only for Lee Min Ki and Gong Yoo.

Is Room no. 19 a real book?

Can I hate Se Hee’s mom? That feels so like my ex MIL. Or may be it is my ever talking #BTIOLF

    Ji-ho’s mom was so right when she told her what her in-laws really meant when they kept calling her “nice”.

      Exactly. And she is so sweetly manipulative. I mean she is not asking her to work directly even once. But just dropping the visible hints.

    That was my take. The mom endured the same thing so now she gets to pass the baton to her daughter-in-law. What I didn’t like were all the comments regarding females and homemaking. Like a man is unable to do chores or cook. They are just as capable!!!!

      When Se-hee said he would clean up the dishes and his mom told him to leave I rolled my eyes so hard.

      But it’s okay because he’ll get a chance to do his labor next episode lol.

        Didn’t the aunt say something like “she’ll look down on you” or something to that effect for doing the dishes. I don’t know what she is talking about. If my hypothetical man offered I would think he was a savior! I hate dishes the most! Hahahaha

          I think she did. And yes, why would anyone look down on someone for doing dishes?!

          Every time his mom said something like “That should be left for people like us who know what we’re doing!” I don’t blame her exactly because she’s a product of the society she was raised in, but times are a-changing, lady! At least Se-hee hasn’t internalized that kind of thinking. He actually tries to help and she doesn’t let him, which I think I would actually find insulting if I were him. Like what, you think I’m not capable of cleaning dishes because of my gender? So dumb!

          I have heard this so many times in the family that I just wanted to shake the character

Is nosebleed a common issue in anybody’s life except in dramas where everyone has them?!

    I think dramas just like to use nosebleeds as metaphors for stress/emotions. And they can also be excuses for skinship. I know it isn’t a super common issue for some people to get nosebleeds, but from experience, if you are prone to get a nosebleed in the first place, you are likely to get more. When I was a kid, I got 2-3 nosebleeds every day for 3 years because of bad allergies. Luckily I eventually matured out of the allergies, but I still get nosebleeds every now and then just because I am susceptible to them.

    I used to get them a ton as a kid and my brother gets them a lot. But not for the same reasons as dramas LOL.

      Same. I used to get it really often as a kid. But somehow I outgrew it? Not really sure why. 😂

    Now, I feel unstressed because I never had them. Lol. But it is interesting how many times it is shown.

    I never got nosebleeds, even when pulling all nighters in Uni. On that same note, though, if I were pregnant every time I was queasy or physically sick (ah, that quaint drama trope), I’d have like 500 kids instead of the 4 who currently annoy me.

I find Jae Chan’s way of speaking so gentle (even when he is fighting) that I am ashamed of opening my mouth and speaking anything today. #swooningoverstupidthings

Finally out of the drama slump and that too with two shows at the same. While You Were Sleeping and Temperature of Love– both giving me fuzzies! 🙂
