Beanie level: Noble idiot

2 things I realized from voting in the Beanie Polls. 1. The no. of 2017 dramas I watched is dismal. 2. The ones I did end up watching were so under the radar, they might as well be underground.

Arang and The Magistrate – First kdrama I watched (and loved!). The first kdrama OST I lost my head over. Lee Joon Gi & Shin Min Ah, the first kdrama OTP I shipped like a crazy person. Good times. <3

I don’t understand a word, but still I cannot help but enjoy the vibe.

I love the interactions between Jung Hye and Do Hee’s son. They are both different kinds of adorkable and cute!!!

One of the sweetest ways to say goodbye to a dear friend. I teared up too! 🙁 [Girls Generation 1979]

Does anybody else get an error when they add a video URL and try to preview the video? I keep getting a message saying there\’s been an error processing my request. I can add images just fine however.

    Some videos couldn’t be added here. Dunno why. Maybe copywrite? You can post the link on the body of your text instead. Hope that helps! 😊

      That seems to be the case. I was trying to add youtube videos but have been miserably failing. I’ll just post them in the text body now on. Thank you for helping! 🙂

My final reaction to the Live Up To Your Name finale. 9/10, would recommend to every passing stranger on the street.

If Young Choon & Hye Joo don\’t get a happy ending, I most certainly am going to flip a table. It is by far the healthiest and most supportive relationship on Girls Generation 1979. They deserve it!

    I’ll go fight the writer if they don’t get their happy ending.

I\’m going to feel so bereft when Live Up To Your Name ends this week. I dont want Heo Im and Yeon Kyung to leave me just as yet. I need more dates, more kisses, more heart eyes! ;____;

I think GG1979 would have done well as 10/12 episode drama. 8 episodes feels too short, since only in the 4th episode are we getting to see the hints of something sinister burbling under the surface.

    Same. There’s been a lot of little moments planted and I’m wondering if 8 episodes will be enough to elaborate on them. There was supposed to be a killer of some sort running around and we haven’t even gotten to that.

      Exactly. I worried about how they are going to wrap things up and don’t want them to cram everything into the last 4 episodes (thereby ruining pacing) or let plot points slip through the cracks in their haste to cover everything.

        I do expect a bit of an open ending since most high school dramas have that but I at least really want to see the mom-dad-aunt mystery revealed, what’s going to happen with Hye-joo and her father, and I want to know about Joo Young-choon’s past. Of course I want to see how the love lines play out but I feel like the love lines are a means for growth and so none of the pairings may come about.

          Oh yes. Those three plot points I would love to see resolved as well. And if these are resolved at the expense of the love lines, I have no problem either. The only couple I’m actively enjoying is Young Choon and Hye Joo and their current interactions are enough to keep me more than invested.

            Same. I’m shipping those the hardest. That last scene in episode 4 melted my heart.

I\’m digging the OST of Girls Generation 1979. And I got especially excited when they played Bee Gees\’ How Deep Is Your Love and The Bangles\’ Eternal Flame. Two of my faves and really well used!

    Isn’t it? I got chills when they used How Deep Is Your Love. Well done show.

    I’m always checking to see when/if there’s going to be a list of the all the music used on the show. Even the instrumentals parts are amazing.

      SAME. I was so surprised and thrilled when I heard How Deep Is Your Love. The OST for this drama is all around amazing!

I\’m usually not a fan of saint-like characters but I cannot dislike Hae Joo. Not only is she really kind & sweet, I love that she\’s not afraid to speak up as well, be it to Ae Sook or the the teacher.

    Yeah she is sweet and spunky. 💞💞

    Same. She has a way of standing up for justice without being holier-than-thou. I think it’s the way that she’s so honest and earnest that makes her actions come off as heroic rather than saintly. Also, I feel like she’s honestly lonely. She has this ridiculous burden of being some kind of Seoul queen and everyone wants to be her or have her but no one truly wants to get to know her and be a genuine friend. I think that’s by she’s drawn to Jung-hee (ek, I think that’s her name). She’s the only person who hasn’t worshipped her and while Jung-hee is brash she can see the warmth underneath it all.

      Well said! Her honesty is definitely a big part of her appeal. 🙂

After Ep 8 of Live Up To Your Name, this is exactly my face.

The biggest tragedy of Reunited Worlds is putting Yeo Jin Goo in unflattering short pants. Give the dude some well-tailored slacks or nicely-fitting jeans. His current pants make me want to weep. 🙁

Um, more dramas like Splash Splash Love pls. It\’s one of the cutest mini-dramas I\’ve seen. For once, I totally enjoyed the cross-dressing hijinks!

I expected some angst from Reunited Worlds, I did not however expect a waterfall running down my face. It\’s just the second episode and I\’ve already bawled my eyes out. ;___;

      Same!! What didn’t help was the fact that it was all so gloomy, the rain, the crying, it just increased the sadness! 🙁

I’m obsessed with this song and playing it on repeat. Signal’s OST was one of the best, hands down!
