Beanie level: Noble idiot

The lyric ‘Wherever you want’ in this song made me think: shouldn’t it be ‘Wherever you are’ or ‘Whatever you want’ or even ‘However you want’? Maybe it was for rhyming ‘Whenever you want’ after that?

I still can’t tell as of now if Park Hoon is playing a bad guy. I prefer grey though.

Itaewon Class is a big reminder that I really need to lower my expectations for webtoon-adapted shows. Regardless of how I view the writing, this instrumental was effective in setting the tone.

    Actually the webtoon is adapted well – there’re slight changes but is almost the same.

When you realise that Hospital Playlist is not only just airing once a week but is also subject to #NetflixSeasons even though all your favourite actors are starring in it and you were hyped up

Left and right and to the town
All the way over and turn around
Side to side and touch the ground
And up and down and round and round
We go

Black Dog fans, the song that we first heard when Seo Hyun Jin immersed herself in her youthful memories is up! Beautiful vocals, beautiful violin interlude, beautiful piano background.

Amidst all the obstacles facing our Black Dog, it is great to see how Ha Neul is hanging it there. I have some theories about the whistleblower, but I will wait for Episode 4 before commenting!

While I’m not a fan of the writing in Chocolate, the music has been great at evoking the melodramatic feels. I’ll keep watching this for Jang Seung Jo and his complex 2nd lead character!

This OST summarises the festive mood I have watching Pegasus Market! However, I’m looking for another track: Beanies, does anyone know the music when Bok Dong hands out the shiny company cards?

While waiting for the instrumentals to drop, I shall enjoy this track from the Be Melodramatic OST! So apparently the actress playing Sol Bi is a singer while Hyo Bong is a musical actor. Nice.
