Beanie level: Noble idiot

I don’t know if I’ll stick with this drama because the length is a bit intimidating but for now I’m loving our resident idiot.

    He is just so **no coherent words**.. I am so enjoying this drama..
    I hope its not too long.. even if it is, I hope its full of these two characters.

      My Dramalist says 60 episodes but I saw 100 episodes floating around somewhere, but if he remains this dumb I might keep watching

When you bump into your crush and he’s looking all I-just-came-out-of-the-shower-y & you look like you were bar hopping all night. But it’s cool because looking put together all the time is exhausting

        Well to be honest in the back of my mind I was thinking “why didn’t he turn on the fan to get rid of that steam?”

          😂 I was wondering why he bothered to blow dry his hair if he was going to towel dry it too, but then I realised the steamy entrance had to be made and he might have missed Ms Jo had he lingered in the bathroom and I thought ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ณ๐˜บ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ

          Oooh lol. As Wookie’s fan I was committed to suffering through this but I gave up a few weeks back but the girl who rewatches Healer every year gave me the stink eye so I was thinking of going back to finish it. But then I don’t want fairies to die 😭😭. Is this a Sophie’s Choice moment? Lol I even blame the drama for making me this dramatic

        I’m just afraid that by mentioning it, people will tune in out of curiosity. Maybe we need to campaign Netflix to take it down.

        2

          I’m sure a number of people tuned in just to see what it was we were ranting about. Still Netflix continues to advertise it hard – probably because they’ve invested in the upcoming season 2.

          3

            The lead in WIL might just be the worst half of a couple I’ve seen in dramaland. I wanted to shake the girl and possibly kidnap her just to get away from what was clearly a crazy person

          Aaaaaand I just realised we were having two different conversations. 🤦‍♀️. I thought you meant Melting me and only saw after clicking the link you meant WIL. Oh yeah, that should definitely go. I still don’t even understand why….just why???

          1
          2

            LOL I thought that might be the case. I mean Melty is also awful and JCW’s character is a sexist jerk. But at least he’s probably not abusive (disclaimer for having dropped the show at episode 6).

            1
            0

            While the ML in Melty did coerce her to participate in a questionable and very unsafe experiment, to give him his due, he did not somehow get an entire medical system to fake a cancer diagnosis and months of treatments so a girl who gave him a cake, once, (am I remembering that correctly?) would like him. WIL’s male lead is an abusive stalker that would even make Hannibal Lector say “wtf dude.”

          I watched the whole thing too. What is wrong with us. The only thing that lessens the sting is I fast forwarded some parts. So I’m telling myself that I am not completely hopeless. Like “oh, yeah you messed up, buuuuut it could have been worse”. Lying to oneself is important sometimes.

            @rueffie I liken it to watching a bad train wreck and that it’s so bad I can’t turn away…
            Sometimes I continue to watch because I can’t believe it’s so bad and somehow it will get better…
            right?

            Well to be honest, I got sucked into Guardian on Viki last weekend. It is a kind of similar to The Untamed – but nowhere near as epic. I like the two main leads- but mostly I love watching on Viki and reading the comments.

            It’s another fun(?) group of characters fighting evil with all their special powers, though some characters are just absurd.

            There aren’t so many on this show like The Untamed where I had to turn them off due to so many. But anyway, I got sucked in and want to see to the end.
            sigh, I must be addicted to self abuse
            But note, this is NO WHERE near as bad as WIL.

    Is this the one where she has leukemia but doesnโ€™t because the CEO bribed the doctor to tell her and then basically ruins her life? I saw the first episode. My secretary saw it all and spoiled it for me. Lol. I said, pass, when she told me the plot.

      That’s it. He stalks her for two years and then fakes a cancer diagnosis and then says he’ll donate his bone marrow to her if she marries him and it’s all a scam because she once bought him a cake or something and apparently her spending months in hospital recovering from fake surgery and fake chaemo for a fake cancer diagnosis before returning home to be married to her stalker is far more romantic than just asking a girl you like out for a coffee.

        And why isnโ€™t that doctor sued for malpractice? Or sent before the healing arts board, or stripped of his license, or a million other things????

        I guess this would be a bad time to tell you all that it would this show that got my secretary hooked on Asian dramas? This is the show in which afterwards she asked me for a list of kdramas to watch! The one where she watched….twice??? Was it really THAT bad??? Now, Iโ€™m doubting all the recommendations I gave her. I should have found more overbearing, abusive chaebol characters for her to watch. Lol.

            I was taken in because there was the scene of her meeting Seok Goo outside on the way home. But that could have been before her accident.

            The other clue that I wasn’t too sure about, was that she looked far too young or at least had not aged at all since his high school days.

    what is this drama about?
    like birdman, imagining things.. theatre? or is he just genuinely the flying horse reincarnated as human?

      @alasecond – you asked last week what this drama is about. hmmmm
      A director is demoted from his job in a huge conglomerate and sent to a small store as a punishment.
      In response, he does everything he can to make the store fail and the parent company go bankrupt. But everything he does turns out to be hugely successful and the store is going well.
      Despite himself (the president of Pegasus Market), he keeps doing things that are against all regular rules in the field of marketing, but actually fit with his big heart helping people.
      And the market is going gangbusters.
      But what is so fun about this show is that it doesn’t take itself serious, and they have fun with characters, costumes, music, ppls of other music and dancing and just overall fun.
      I cannot recommend it enough as a lighthearted but deeply feeling story about what is important.
      And oh, the music and costumes are epic as well.
      Try it – you’ll like it. The show only airs one episode a week, but it is a slow burn and every week is just better than the last.
      Trust us beanies when we say this is our happy pill -you will smile and laugh at the absurdity and silliness the whole hour.
      LOVE this show. can you tell?

          When you asked over the weekend I wanted to respond – but was trying to find some way to adequately describe this show. Last night the words finally came to me. It is a truly unique show that I look forward to every week.

          I was trying to find the right words to describe it in a way that sells it well because all I had was “It’s a show about a ‘loser’ market where no one wants to go and everyone who goes there ends up weird and slightly unhinged”. Not a good selling point even if it’s why I love it. @stpauligurl I like your explanation better 🙂

        As someone who used to advertise for Dyson (yes, Iโ€™m in /that/ industry hahahahahuhu), I could def say their products are really top notch but price-wise… MEH.

        Same goes for me and Subway though, I guess you really get an association for a product when youโ€™ve seen them many times in dramas. My friend and I go to Subway to hang out and talk about dramas just because. Then again, that is how they want us to think – so thatโ€™s advertising and brand awareness well done. Hahahahaha

    I think that because its a manhwa world, Danoh knew nothing would happen to her. Eventually, by the time Haru appeared, the cars and people just vanished. It was empty, as you’d expect such a small world to be.
