Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

Are they ever planning to let us escape this rabbit hole? How can we move on if they keep feeding us more Wangxian BTS?? Not that I’m complaining…

    Just accept it. We will never escape this wonderful rabbit hole that includes these two young men…

      I can’t help you with any recommendations because I need help myself! 😛 But yes, the visuals are so beautiful! My favorite visual has to be Young Wei Ying in white robes – so innocent, so cute~

      (but maybe give Diary of a Prosecutor a try? it’s the opposite of what I associated with the Untamed, but I’m enjoying watching the characters immensely!)

      Kdrama “My Holo Love” was able to keep my interest and attention (a large part, because of the low episode count, just 12 episodes), and Cdrama “Fairyland Lovers” was good—but not amazing or brilliant lol—(but this one, you really need to give it a chance to get to the end of Episode 1 before it gets interesting) ☺️☺️
      I know a few Cdrama/TWdrama watching Beanies have recently started or finished watching TW dramas “Yong Jiu’s Grocery Store” & “Some Day or One Day” and really loved it 😊 Some highly recommended them

      Right now Itaewon Class has my attention.
      Visually I find it appealing, it looks like a comic book. Complex characters especially with the 2 FLs. Also, a transgender character that so far is being treated with respect.

      For me, it was Joy of Life that finally brought me to enjoy another drama. I always love a good and complicated court intrigues, and having Xiao Zhan playing a minor role in that helped a lot too. Besides, Zhang Ruoyun’s awesome acting won me over within the first 4 or so eps.

      Upload the Crunchyroll app and watch this anime named Given.

      The read the magna it is based on because as good as the anime series is, it still does not due justice to how damn good the magna is.

      It will start its sale stateside this spring and it will get my money.

      It took me a long 6-7 months before I could properly watch a c or k drama. I ended reading all 3 of MXTX’s novelS during this time and a couple of other BL novels. Then I slowly watched one drama at a time.

      Of the dramas I watched, I do recommend Joy of Life. At least check out the first episode. It is a lot of fun.

        I’m definitely planning to watch JoL, my only concern is waiting for the next season…

          This kinda explains why I have not watched the last three episodes. 😂 I don’t want it to end but it’s been weeks now and I know I should finish it.

    I absolutely love the blue color scheme.
    Nothing compares. But I thoroughly enjoyed Taiwan’s SOME DAY OR ONE DAY. It just finished and was good all the way thru the end. Loved the musical score too. My 2nd favorite drama after Untamed.

      @linda-palapala Have you watched Joy of Life? What’s your thought on that?

        I watched thru ep 28 or so but now I’m going to have to start over b ecause Viki took so long to sub it I forgot a lot. I did watch the ending, since I already knew how it was going to end. But the episodes I watched were humorous, which Zhang Ruoyun can pull off very well, and they were excellently done. The only drawback is the weird cliffhanger at the end, which we’re told don’t worry, but it was just a weird ending since they hadn’t even started a 2nd season.

    I will say that I think there is ONE drama that I feel can go against all the pretty-ness of the “Untamed”, and that is “Ashes Of Love” 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻
    Not to say that one drama beats out the other, but it is to say that, imo, BOTH dramas are up there in the visuals department 😍😍😍😍😘😘😘😘

    @persianrose! I feel you…I managed to watch a couple of shows since.

    My recommendations:
    C dramas – Joy of Life, Finding Yourself. The former is one of the better period dramas out there and the latter is a modern noona romance which is miles better than any noona rom kdrama I’ve seen. It tackles many modern issues that women face. Fun and meaningful
    TW dramas – Some Day, One Day and Sandstorm. The former is a time travel, doppelganger romance. You know this genre often ends up in a mess but not this one. The latter is more like a family sitcom, totally wacky but does have meaningful takes on relationships and life.

    No kdrama – the slump is real.

    Currently rewatching Nirvana In Fire(C drama) with peeps on discord.

      Wow, we have similar taste!! I haven’t seen all that’s on your list but Sandstorm and NIF are both super high on my list of favorites!
      I’ve rewatched NIF 4 times along with Season 2 lol.

      I need to start over with Joy of Life. Subs took too long and I forgot stuff. So you rec’d Finding Yourself? Okay, I’ll try again… SomeDay/One Day, omg 2nd best drama after Untamed. I’m watching it again… Sandstorm? It’s taking Viki forever to sub it so I gave up. Now I’ll try again! I do respect your opinion on dramas. Except for NIF, I just couldn’t get into it, but I loved NIF2 (go figure, as I’m the only one who liked it better).

      Come to think of it, there’s j-drama I’ve now watched 4 times “The Novelist” which really should be titled “The Pornographer”. Don’t know why, but I find it tenderhearted, subtly humorous and I love the OST. It’s only 6 episodes/20 minutes each. I’m going to watch it again.

    The quality edit on that IG post though! I would love to watch The Untamed again with this filter *___*
    I’m currently watching Put Your Head On My Shoulder. It’s a light watch. Lots of cute moments. Just what I need during our community lockdown.

I just want to protect what you’ve given me with all my heart
The little things about us are everything to me
Even if our memories become blurred
I won’t forget our beginnings
Once you learn to face loneliness, there’s no turning back
Because of your smile, I won’t be let down
Regardless of how hard it gets in the future
As long as you’re by my side, I’ll be satisfied

    I love this song that he’s made and dedicated to his fans, and what I love more is just how much weight and emphasis he chooses to put onto this song and how he always remembers to go back to it from time to time when he knows and feels like he needs a reality check and to bring himself back down to earth on the midst of all the craziness and all the glitz and glamor

Lee Joon Gi always wanted to do psychopath role, and I’m glad that he got his wish… also the plot sounds very intriguing… LJG & MCW really deserve a good drama after that Criminal of a Mess

    Wang Yi Bo irl is truly like the kid brother of Xiao Zhan in real life, it’s so precious and CUTE!!!! He really does admire and look up to Xiao Zhan as a person irl

      Not quite sure about “the kid brother” part … I do not understand the language and culture of big brother/little brother but watching the BTSs I felt they are like equal friends of same age (not the elder or Sunbae)… Wang Yi Bo is quite bold teasing Xiao Zhan all the time (maybe it’s just my personal interpretation)… first time I watched the BTS I thought they’re same age and seniority, I was shocked to find out WYB is quite younger and consider to be his junior

      3
      1

        Oh, when I mean “kid brother”, I really mean just that— Wang Yi Bo looks up to Xiao Zhan the same way that a younger brother would look up to his biological brother 🙂 Always following what he does, always turns to him for advice/for fun things to do/for conversation… I’m not trying to make any references to culture XD
        But it’s very true what you say, too!! Xiao Zhan is just so easy going and easy to talk to and doesn’t make it seem like there is that age difference between the 2 of them.
        In terms of experience being in the spotlight and working in the entertainment industry, Wang Yi Bo would actually be considered the ‘senior’, as he started out a year before Xiao Zhan did (2014 Wang Yi Bo vs 2015 Xiao Zhan)

          I’m totally unaware of XZ and WYB level of work seniority etc. Based on my own observation I feel that there is this mutual understanding, comfort and confidence between them that they look like same age friends rather than sunbae/hoobae or hyung/dongsaeng (not sure about the Chinese equivalent of theses terms)…

          4

            It’s like they don’t care about those social restrains when it comes to their friendship!

            That’s true!! They don’t seem to care about those formalities, which is great 🙂
            In Chinese culture, the senior/junior a.k.a. sunbae/hoobae formality is not something that’s really regarded when you’re all part of the same generation doing the same things, unless it’s in a situation when it’s really explicit, i.e. In this “Day Day Up” episode (www.youtube.com/watch?v=vl5NYFnseIE&t=1589s), the girl group that’s guest was mentored and taught by Wang Yi Bo at some point, so even though they’re all in the same generation in terms of age, the girls still call Wang Yi Bo “Senior” or “Teacher” and show a certain level of respect to him.

            Within Chinese culture, when you’re of the same generation in terms of age, the sunbae/hoobae thing is hardly an issue. It’s when the generations start to cross and you have older or elder actors/actresses/singers that you’re working with that you have to be a lot more conscious about these things and should address the sunbae as such in public settings–unless the sunbae is super chill and tells you otherwise– as a sign of respect. I imagine that drama/movie sets are when the formalities of these things matter most in the Chinese entertainment industry, since the cast of a drama/movie is always so diverse and made up of actors/actresses of all walks of life

            It seems like Chinese culture isn’t as stringent as Korean in regards to the age thing (or the sunbae/hoobae thing).

            And I agree @bebeswtz that WYB seems like a little brother compared to XZ. Maybe because they have the same dynamic me and my little brother or me and my little sister have with each other. The teasing, playfulness, the mock fighting, etc.

            Thanks @bebeswtz for explaining Chinese culture regarding the sunbae/hoobae… so it seems that the social restrains around seniority/juniority is not as tough as Korean system… Watching Korean entertainment industry for many years I was so both shocked and rejoiced to see that WYB teasing XZ so freely and comfortably!! Sorry I was not trying to generalize but I though Korean and Chinese work culture might have similar standards…

            @trinpie
            Yea! They seem to have a really good and chill dynamic as the base foundation of their friendship 🙂 They share Xiao Zhan’s tea and neither of them feel awkward about it lol I don’t find it awkward either (I live in North America where everything and anything doesn’t take itself seriously) because I share food & drinks with my friends, too, but I wasn’t expecting it from THEM haha

            @persianrose
            The Chinese cultural way of the sunbae/hoobae dynamic is definitely not as restrained and rigid as the Koreans, and I think that has a lot to do with the fact that Korean society is still very tiered, patriarchal, and backwards.
            That’s okay!! I can see where you’re coming from. Admittedly, many cultural things of Korea were indeed inherited and influenced from China in the ancient times–and have since then crossed over into modern times– since both countries are side-by-side 🙂

      I’d always wondered what his drink was as you see him (and WYB stealing it) in a few BTS videos. It looked gross to me lol but I also don’t like tea. But they are adorable like always 😆
