Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

Lee Seo Jin is such a bad tempered, immature ahjussi in Marriage Contract that I’m really looking forward to his come-uppance. Also to him getting schooled by a seven year old firecracker 🧨

    Another under appreciated gem of a show. Uee’s best performance to date, I think.

      Yessssss!!!! Though she still has quite a long career ahead of her, I still believe that “Marriage Contract” is, and always will be, a defining moment and role in her career ♥️♥️♥️

        I feel like all the Love was isolated to the comments section of the recaps…. I know, because I was one of the people who posted in the comments every week for almost all the episodes 🥰🥰🥰 I just love this drama so much and adore Hye Soo so much

    His come-uppance doesn’t really happen as such, but more of a self-revelation of sorts, but it reeeeeaaaaaally hits you in the gut when it happens… Don’t forget to prep some tissues handy as you continue on, and know that there is a whole Beanie Community of support when you need it 😉😉😉😉

More thoughts on VIP ⬇️

    VIP has a well developed story for its supporting characters but I really don’t buy the affair between LSY and Yuri. They just don’t have the chemistry to make it believable. I’ve never seen other works of LSY but he looks like a fine actor, at least he makes a very serious and deep-thinking face well. maybe his character needs a bit more love fr the writer? Cos by the time they let us have his back-story i already thought he was a jerk and the sob excuse for the affair totally unacceptable. And Yuri is definitely not as innocent as she’d like people to believe. To me, she gives off a sly/sneaky vibe.

    As for Mina, the poor woman is practically having a breakdown. If only she could trust & talk more to her husband – like he said, he may be an idiot but he’s still her husband.

    I want more of Hyun Ah writer-nim! More Hyun Ah, less boring VPs politicking. Please!

      I think Sung jun and Yu ri’s lack of is by design. Sung jun likes a project in women and his wife was no longer a project for him. And since we know there was a child at one point coming and they lost, Jung sun was probably hurting and then found strength and confidence again
      ( and we know she is really good at her job) and Sung jun more than likely got bored and then saw this doe eyed, ‘innocent’ and needy Yu ri who saw Sung jun for what he was and pounced.

      It is telling that he had not one bit of romantic interest in Hyun ah because Hyun ah had confidence and then some to spare and Sung jun just couldn’t have that in a woman. He would never be Hyun ah’s hero and she will never utter those words to him.

      Like @larelle79 mentioned, the only reason Sung-joon was attracted to Yu-ri is because they were able to pity each other. Although he won’t admit it, he loved that she was needy and seemingly innocent. I wonder how he views her now that she’s being treated differently as the VP’s daughter. Does he still feel bad for her? Anyways, neither the characters of Yu-ri or Sung-joon needed to be well-written. Their purpose is arguably for us to hate them.

      On the other hand, Jung-sun, Mi-na, and Hyun-ah are written beautifully, so I’m loving VIP so far.

      @larelle79 @sukstan yeah i did suspect LSY only liking Yuri cos she seemed pitiable. That would explain how he could still be so formal w her, he’s basically an emotionless rock. Remember that scene where he cried in the car? I was thinking why can’t you have shown this emotion in front of your wife!?!

        The scene where he cried in his car was sooo out of character for him I was shell-shocked. LSY did do a really great job acting it. I wish he could emote in places other than his car.

Current watch: VIP, Marriage Contract.
Maybe I’ll try to continue WWW and The Light In Your Eyes.

Catch the Ghost – any thoughts on this one Beanies?

People With Flaws – I really like Kim Seul Gi but the show didn’t really capture my interest, so I’ll pass for now.

Beautiful Love, Wonderful Life – been watching the clips on YT, looks like a great drama but 100 eps?? I’ll stick to the clips.

Beanies, between Marriage Contract and My Husband Oh Jak Doo, which would you recommend to watch?

1

    Marriage Contract if you want to weep and at the same time, be charmed by Lee Seo Jin’s dimples. This drama introduced good actress UEE to me, not just the idol. I’ve loved her since then.
    My Husband Oh Jak Doo – if you’d rather spend your time ogling Kim Kang Woo. He’s truly a treat. Really, he’s a strong contender to LSJ’s dimples and I don’t know if you’re aware but they are gorgeous dimples!!

      @esther @bebeswtz @stpauligurl @trinpie @persianrose @ndlessjoie thanks for your input! I watched 2 eps of Marriage Contract yesterday and i liked it. Gosh that little girl is so spunky n adorable..and i’ve lost count of how many times UEE cried in just two episodes. This is a #cryfest done well. So far. I hope i’ll enjoy it to the end.

        Glad you like it so far! I was watching this at work and got to a very emotional part and I was literally bawling my eyes out at work hoping no one would walk by my desk and see me in full sniveling cry mode 😅 (thankfully no one did)

        Awww I’m glad that you’re enjoying it!!

        Yea, this drama is definitely cryfest/makjang/melo done RIGHT <3 FINALLY someone who doesn't judge and think that little Eun Sang is 'being bad/disrespectful/whatever else' but just how a little girl should be (if I remember correctly, she's supposed to be 8 years old?) ~!!! OMG You would not believe the Viki live comments just bashing the little girl and the character T……T

        If you are able to look beyond the stereotypes that a Kdrama would typically give to a viewer and look towards the deeper things–like people-to-people relationships, implications of relationships, the actions of a person and just exactly how much it has an impact on others– then I think you'll be able to enjoy the drama to the end 🙂 It's one of my very top Korean dramas EVER <3

          Perhaps fr an Asian perspective the girl could be seen as rude. But i think she was more bold than anything, and also perceptive.

        Oh, I’m glad you are liking it so far.
        This show was really different for me despite all the usual tropes.
        Yes, it will make you cry (and at times actually ugly cry) but in the long run totally worth it. UEE turned in an incredible performance.
        And the daughter was amazing.

    Marriage Contract. The acting and characters are amazing – you will be weeping, but only because you empathize and love the characters. It is really that good.

    I haven’t seen Oh Jak Doo, but I saw Marriage Contract and loved it. Was phenomenal, but only watch it if you are ready for some heavy emotions and to bawl your eyes out. Was heart-wrenching but beautiful.

    Marriage Contract is an excellent drama, while the other one is just an addictive makjang… Marriage Contract is tearjerker, while Oh Jak Doo is just a bit angsty but mainly a weekend rom-com

    I just thought of something..maybe DB staff is trying to trick us into thinking it’s mid-Nov so they have more time to prep for YEAR END REVIEWS, my favorite season of Dramabeans.

I checked out the first two eps of Melt Me – the tone was all over the place, the time-line can be a bit confusing and the choice of music is… let’s say not typical. Despite this I found it quite interesting and would’ve probably continued if I had nothing better to watch. Since I do, this’ll be a pass. Also, having read the final recap and fan wall, this show sounds makjang of the not-good-wacko variety.

On the other hand, the first two eps of VIP were very enjoyable and I’m intrigued by the majority female cast. I like Lee Chung Ah but have hardly seen her work, and Jang Nara is Jang Nara so I look forward to continuing this once the current shows (EY, Vagabond and Camellia) wraps up.

Any VIP-watching beanies care to share whether you’re enjoying the show?

    I like it a lot so far, but I hope they won’t drag the whole aaffair mystery for too long and concentrate on characters, they all seem pretty interesting. Lee Chung Ah is most interesting one as of now, but the meek newbie and housewives sure have a lot to hide too.
