Beanie level: Jang Geu-rae

Hello beanies, Happy Thanksgiving! My school cancelled classes tomorrow and the rest of the week due to snow storm and Thanksgiving so I will have a long break this week. I’m looking for recommendation for a feel-good rom com drama (movie is fine too) to watch with my roommate. We’re trying to get some good laugh and positive mindset before the crazy final weeks come. 

Examples of our feel-good rom com were Go Go Squid, Be My Melo, Because This Is My First Life, WWW, Le Coup de Foudre, Put Your Head on My Shoulder, Love 020, Twenty Again, Age of Youth, Avengers Social Club, Age of Youth. Anything with similar vibe and less than 30 episodes is welcome 🙂

Thanks in advance!

        LOL came here to recommend WFKBJ but you’ve already watched it, why not try “Pinocchio” and/or “At Eighteen”?

    The Secret Life of My Secretary was great! 30 but 17, What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim, Her Private Life, The Liar and His Lover, Reach of Sincerity, Rookie Historian, You who forgot Poetry, but if you really want a laid back show where everyone is super nice and the parents are nice, and there’s great girl friendships, then you must watch 20th Century Boy and Girl. It was on the same time as BTIOFL.

      You Who Forgot Poetry.

      That is due for a rewatch.

      *sigh* RIP Dramafever.

Thanks a bunch to all the beanies that introduced me to “Put your head on my shoulder”! Such a cute and delightful romcom. I’ve been squealing and laughing to my heart’s content in the last two days

Did someone know what happened to the YT channel of MBC Classics??? A bunch of clips were made private and titles are now all in Korean which makes it so hard to find them :((

Well hard decision. I want to keep watching Graceful Family to see how Seok Hee fights her disgusting family, but because they are so disgusting, it’s so difficult for me to enjoy the drama. Should I drop it????

    What episode are you on?

      I’m on ep 9 now. I hate people having affair and not repenting a tiny bit about it. Watching the father and his disgusting behaviors just makes me feel nauseous.

    I wanted to drop after seeing the preview at the end of ep 5 so I put it on hold for awhile and decided to pick it up again. When I did, I watched another 2 ep in a row and have now finished ep 7.
    My advice is to pause when you feel you can’t take it anymore and then watch it when the mood comes again (which for me was seeing Beanies talk about GF on the fan wall)

[Something about 1%] I was recently stressed out by life and school so naturally I rewatched my no.1 go to feel good drama!

I\’m on Ep 6 of Graceful Family and I\’m pissed that Seok Hee lose her inheritance too easily. How in the earth can they snatch it from her when everything was already in her name??? I get it that she missed her CEO appointment but she\’s still the largest shareholder!

    I just finished ep 5 and the preview made me unable to press the play button for ep 6…. I’m not prepared for what’s about to happen!

      Yeah, I’m putting the show on hold now until I feel like I can shut my brain off to watch it. I also have bad impression about the grandpa. He could have been getting up earlier and cleaned up the mess (his mess!) for his granddaughter. After all, he is THE one with the right power to do it. If he truly loves Seok Hee, how could he let her suffer all these years and leave her toothless now that she has to fight against her vicious family members? Not a good grandpa at all. If people in the family need to blame someone for their miserable life, they can definitely blame him!

My Country looks gorgeous and has compelling story telling. My only concern is it\’s a bit too heavy for my taste, it starts out with so much disillusionment and it seems to anticipate tragic ending too. Not sure if my heart can take all that ~~~

GHR ended today! The show started with a bunch of people harboring so much agony and self-hatred because of what happened in the past. It\’s a joy to see these people leaned on each other and TOGETHER found a new beginning! I haven\’t felt this good about a drama\’s ending for a long time. Well done show!

I also didn’t know that a few farts could make me cry this much #Melo

Melodramatic is such a witty show! I can\’t say enough about how I love it. The writing has consistently surprised me with countless \”ah ha\” moments weekly. One moment I was crying and the next second I could laugh hysterically. They capture the mundanity and hardships of adult life with the appropriate care while injecting enough humor and perspectives to keep the story entertaining. It is easily one of the best K-dramas produced this year <3 <3 <3

    I love how it’s full of surprises, odd humor, dark humor and heart in every episode.

Sooo Youtube has been recommending this wacky C-drama called “My girlfriend is an alien” on my newsfeed. It has some really weird synopsis so I wasn’t planning to get into it but guess what? I finally watched it because there was no GHR this week. And man I think I found my fix, it’s so hilarious and cute and fluffy!!! The chemistry is off the chart and although I was not into the male lead at first, he definitely grows on me, he looks so hot to me now lol. Highly recommend this drama if you need something easy and fun to watch (1) while waiting for Vagabond’s premiere or (2) treat your C-drama withdrawal from Go Go Squid!

    I had read the synopsis and was like ‘wtf is this drug induced drama? No way will I watch it’ but now I’ve seen a lot of beanies saying it is crazy but very addictive which means I’m gunna need to check it out 😂

      They will air the remaining episodes next week so it’s a good time to start binge watching them hehe. I kind of regretted that I didn’t wait until all the episodes are released. Now all I can do is waiting in anxiety *sigh*

    i havent heard of it (but am now intrigued) but i think we need a term for the I was not into the male lead at first, he definitely grew on me, and he looks so hot to me now lol phenomenon. i cant even count the number of times that has happened to me!

      Agree! Someone good with language needs to come up with a fun term for it. I’ve learned so many creative terms from our beanies like “bromance” or “truck of doom” hahaha

    Oh my gosh, yes it is so addicting! I’ve watched all the mini trailers up until ep 20.
    Fang leng is so handsome and charismatic, I can’t wait until they finally get together.
    The most recent episodes were so funny with xiao xi trying to get his heart racing lol

#Melo What a way to end an episode! It hurts so much to see Eun Jung stabbed with reality. I just want to hug her tight T.T By the way, is Son Seok Koo cameoing in the next episode?? Like woa…

Picking up Be Melodramatic because The Great Show has not been subbed yet. Love love it! It\’s like a quirky cross child of two other excellent slice of life dramas WWW and Age of Youth <3

#Rookie Does anyone find the king annoying and hilarious instead of scary lol??? Every time he yells, his voice and face always feel like he\’s holding back his laughs ^o^

    I have always seen him in semi comedic roles so yeah I understand what you mean 😄

    He is not the brains of that operation and we and they know it. I really think he is written well in that regard.

    He might have the throne, but we know Chancellor Min is the power behind it.

    Unfortunately, he reminds me of an idiot currently residing in the WH so I have a hard taking him seriously with all his bluster and anger. But I’ll look again to see if he is really trying not to laugh.
    yes he is an interesting actor…

    That’s because his character is a joke. Easily swayed but pretends he’s above everyone when really, he’s just a puppet for Chancellor Min.

DS:60 I was shivering a bit when PMJ shredded the document and burst with joy that he remained a man of integrity and honor till the end. The last ep was anti-climatic but overall still a great show!

It\’s so frustrating but I must admit the mastermind behind the whole presidential gambling is absolutely brilliant, and ofc their resources are impressive too #DS60D

After the episode today, although I haven\’t watched the original show, I strongly suspect that the real culprit will teach us an important lesson about the meaning of \”good man in politics\”.#DS60
