Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

Watching Memories of the Alhambra and Boyfriend reminds me strangely, strongly (and pleasantly!) of the time we were watching  Moon Lovers and Moonlight brought by Clouds!
Two simultaneously airing dramas, so different from each other yet having enough similar vibes to be occasionally compared. Also capturing the most number of comments here at DB! And YY’s poetry. Yeah, Good times.😄
Hope the effect continues!

Medical drama beanies, watch this! It’s not perfect, but fairly impressive. Starring Ha Ji-won, Seo Hyun-jin, Park Shin-hye, Song Hye-kyo and Moon So-ri, it’s like the epicest women-power cast EVER!
.
P.S.- I’ve always had a feeling Seo Hyun-jin and Ha Ji-won share a similar vibe, and the video proves it. Put together (with matching hair, no less) I had a hard time trying to distinguish who’s who, lol!

Guys, anybody can decipher the meaning behind this MV? The song is sweet, the drawings are beautiful and dreamy, but I wanna know what does it mean!
BTW, that’s one creative labyrinth! Bended trees with still growing canopy providing the doorways? Wow.🌲🌳 Plus it’s a see-through labyrinth!

    Let your imagination run wild and don’t hold yourself back or limit yourself to just the things you’ve heard or read in the stories and fairytales you grew up with…. Create your own story, create your own fairytale

      K. But what does the two kids being swallowed in an avalanche, a woman(probably mom?) dreaming about it, going to meet up one kid(what has happened to the other kid?), a plane crash and the woman and kid being transformed into unicorns mean? Are they in heaven now?
      I thought other than being a simple, sweets motivational song it has some hidden dark undertone?

        Fairytales are not, and don’t always have to be, all good things and only consist of rainbows and unicorns

          I didn’t say I think that all fairy tales should have happy endings now did I?😉
          I just wanna know the story that MV is trying to tell, ’tis all!

          1

            Well, that’s my interpretation of the MV & lyrics… Including the part about fairytales not always having happy endings

          Ahhh. I see. Sorry for misunderstanding!😀
          Mmm, I guess what you’re saying makes sense more than trying to read too much into the MV.
          Thanks for the help!

Crimes of Grindelwald reminds me of a makjang and a conspiracy Sageuk put together.
1. Girl leaves with another man because she mistakenly believes the male lead has left her.
2. Girl leaves the male lead and joins the villain for “Greater Good”.
3. The villain is silver-tounged and convinces the citizens that there’s something wrong with the system and everything needs to be purified.
4. The innocent, carefree male lead gets roped into the politics and ugly stuff mainly because of the girl and also because he has no choice but to average/work for the more experienced but incapacitated forced-to-background mentor, who’ll provide the lead with kindly encouragement and clues and stuff.
.
Oh wow. Did I just describe half the plot of Rebel: thief who stole the people ? 😝😂 Lol I totally didn’t realize it until after I finished the list!
Well at least Rebel didn’t give of an unpleasant makjang-y feel.

      AND Tina…
      I mean seriously, they’re like bratty high-school girls who turn the other way if they don’t get what they want the exact instant!
      As of now, Leta seems ten times better.
      Speaking of, what happened to Leta? Did she die?

      1
      1

        Totally agree, Leta was 100 times better but yes, she died. Have those sisters never heard of communication or compromise? Grindelwald practically said no-mags be damned and Queenie still went with him. Not only that but the man she is trying to marry is telling not to trust him and yet she does. Dummy.

        Tina was just silly. If she had sent a letter or called him and said, “Dude WTF?!! I thought we had something going on?!!” she would have found out the truth.

        At the end do you think Leta was telling Newt, his brother or both “I love you”?

          These magic schools should include something like “social studies” to their curriculum. I dunno. It feels like after writing so many fat books and having time to lengthily explain her characters, J.K. Rowling isn’t great with developing her characters into sensible people within a two-hour timespan.
          .
          Ah, that’s a difficult question. I think she said that to both? Yunno, as a friend-and-a-little-bit-more to Newt, as a lover to Theseus, and in gratitude to all the pleasant moments she shared so far with both of them…

NO longer a Eunuch! Wheeeeee
Can’t think of a normal Chaebol’s poor doppelganger , so I’m going for a Joseon Royal Sis-in-law’s Modern-day poor doppleganger lol!
And that’s the most apt role for me to transcend from my Joseon role-playing to modern day Seoul, I guess. I still get the Prince, the guard, the inspecter and an (ex)fellow eunuch to watch my back until I properly adapt to this era, muahaha. Talk about priorities!

Guys, if your Corned Beef can has a \”Ready to Eat\” label, would you still not cook it or what?
I\’ve a can opened, but it looks/smells raw to me.

    Yep. Canned Corned beef smells like that – the type u open with the key screw thingy right? Usually my family adds onions & put in on the frying pan fr a few minutes – great as a sandwich.

      What about the smell that? It’s a bit nauseating to me. Can you get rid of it if done in your way?
      Also, why does it have a “ready to eat label” if we’re supposed to cook it?

        It is ready to eat & you can eat it straight- however my family likes to eat it hot/warm.. The onions once cooked will help reduce the smell a little.

My 1st ever Potato bread is a success! I used the dough to make my 1st ever braided bread too.
@captblackdog No crust problem this time around. And no yeast-y taste either! 
Now, can somebody enlighten me whether there’s any special way to eat braided bread? lol

    That looks delicious. We always just pull braided bread pieces off to eat them.

It’s my humble version of the best soup in the whole world; BORSCH! 🙂
Ingredients: Beetroot, Potato, garlic, onion, sausages
Because I steam-boiled beetroot (I was impatient,lol) the soup lost its iconic red color. It’s still yummy anyway. 😉
Off to slurp now!

    Is it a winter or summer soup? Or can be eaten during both seasons? Looks delicious like tomatoes soup 🤤

    O.O I forgot to mention Atzuki/Red/Kidney beans! That’s the most important ingredient following beetroot! It contributes in the red color and starch-y taste!

    @ryunami
    Ummm, we don’t have much of a seasonal difference here, but right now it’s very cold, rainy and windy, and having this soup made me feel..yunno full. And comforting. The last time I had this it was some other season I guess, but I remember it ALWAYS tasted super great and filling my senses. 🙂
    So yes, I think it’s an year-rounder. Plus any kind of warm soup makes you feel nice in winter right? Same’s the case here.
    Look up Borsch in the “Spruce eats Global” site. They have several variations. Russian ones have meat, Ukrainian one is vegetarion.

At least I know now that Mydramalist didn’t get my b’day from my email address. (I’d been thinking that I’ve purposefully entered false data to my email account) And I’m pretty sure Mydramalist didn’t ask me to enter a b’day when I registered into it.
So how did they come up with this? Even the month is correct!!

    Mine is listed as the same day, and it is not my birthday. It might be their default, though why they need a default I cannot fathom.

    Wow – I like those flowers in the first and second photo. Would love to use my camera on them. I was out yesterday taking photos of my dahlias at the end of the season. That helped me feel a little better until I watched “the beauty inside” then had a good cry.
    thank you for sharing these wonderful flowers!

    In my country, Turkey Berry is related to eggplant and we cook it the way we cook the eggplant. While kids during my days we used the berries as the bullets for our homemade toy guns.

    The 3rd and 4th pics is a type of weeds we called Chinese Violet (some parts of the world call it Creeping Foxglove or Asystasia).

      We cook both of them too! But I sorta hate Turkey Berry curry ’cause it’s bitter.
      Thanks for telling me what the other plants are!

        OH i never try with curry, i always blanch the berries and stir fry with chillies and anchovies. The oldwives dip the raw berries into sauces and eat with rice but i think thats too extreme for me (coz im not too fond of eggplants and brinjals)

    Lavendar sorrel (pic 3 & 4) is from the same family as starfruit; in my country this weed is call the hill’s starfruit or sand starfruit. Its small berries look like a miniature of starfruit and the taste is sour. The oldwives used the dark ripe berries to reduce high blood level and the whole plant is boiled with water to cure hemorrhoids and reduce diabetes.

    Chinese violet (pic 5) is a nuisance weed to the farmers but in some plantations it is used as the the crop cover to prevent soil erosion. It’s high in antioxidant and breeders feed it to the cattles, sheeps and rabbits. The old wives use the leafs to cure open wounds, and some says it can treat athma. In some countries it is similar to water spinach and can be eat after cook. The bees and ants like the small flowers because they produce sweet nectar.

Went to babysit at my aunt\’s house today, and took a PDF novel in my phone with me so I can read it to pass my time until aunt returns. (She\’s a teacher.)
The thing is, aunt has an identical phone as me, and you can guess what happened!
A minute ago aunt called me from school exclaiming she found out that in an extremely scary and rude way. Once she opened the phone, she\’d been greeted with a You are dying!! (a line from the currently open page of my PDF) an she was scared out of her wits! 😂😈
And now I\’m DB-ing with her phone because I don\’t have anything else to do. 😬😜😋

Little cousin sis sent me this handmade wall-decor as an early B’day present (She likes to do handiwork!). After making it overnight following some internet tutorial, she has felt like she couldn’t keep it as a secret until the actual day, so she presented it to me right away the next day, heh.
Now it’s hanging on my wall. 
