Beanie level: Errand boy

Oh Oh, Lee Soo-hyuk is back hee!!! But, he’s jumping straight to a movie instead of a drama. This means I won’t be able to see him for a while.

*mic test 1,2 1,2* Is this thing on? Hi everyone!!!! It feels like it’s been a million years since I’ve been here. I haven’t been able to watch many dramas this year. Anxiety and depression have been kicking my ass these past few months so my concentration has been wrecked, and work has been hectic. I hope you’re all doing well.✌🏿✌🏿✌🏿✌🏿✌🏿

Was there really only one episode of The Crowned Clown this week?

Hello citizens of the beanieverse! I’m currently hooked on The Crowned Clown. I adore Yeo Jin-gu in this show, but it’s hard not to adore him honestly. I do believe the person in charge of the music needs to calm down though, not every scene is an epic moment. I wanted to wager that perhaps the King would get a redemption arc and live the rest of his life atoning for killing his brother by acting as Dal-rae’s brother, while Ha-seon can go ahead and have babies with the Queen but with the way the preview for episode 7 is, everything is up in the air. It’s so nice to have a show I’m hooked on again, especially with My Strange Hero ending soon.

I can’t believe it’s time for another year end poll on Dramabeans. Looking at all the options just made me realize how little I watched this year. Hopefully, next year brings more excitement for me.

So, I tried having ramen in my ddukboki today, and this is what they call a new world.

I’m so afraid to watch the final episode of Fox Bride Star. I thought we would have 2 more episodes because of the whole preemption thing, but there’s actually just one episode. Here we go.

    I’m still trying to get up the courage. Maybe this weekend.

      I’ve seen it and maybe because I was prepared to be greatly disappointed, I didn’t think it was that bad.

I did a cover of IU\’s Ending Scene. This is my favourite song from last year\’s album.

    I like Myeon’s new haircolor!!! He looks so pretty with blonde hair.. Now, if only he styles it with side-part (like in Overdose era or Student A) and not middle part… 😍😍

      I loved his hair style in Student A even though I hated the colour. The hair I’m waiting for to make a comeback is Lotto. He looked so good, it physically hurt to look at him.

        Oooohhhh… The burgundy (or was it pink-purple-ish??) color??? I like it too!!! One of my fave Myeon’s hairstyle.. 😍

          Yes, the red one he had in the Lotto music video and during EXO’rdium. That and his Ko Ko Bop era hair are my two favourite looks on him.

Eun-bi stop being beautiful and making my heart flutter challenge: failed again. I’m going to fight her at this rate.

      Same here! She was my first pick all through produce and I was so glad she made it. I was worried their debut song would skew a bit younger since the average age of the group is like 17-18, but I really like this song. Eun-bi suits this concept a lot.

    I still can’t get over how chic this group is styled. They look so pretty all the time!

First 2 episodes of Feel Good To Die were pretty enjoyable for me. I\’m adding this to my list for right now. Along with The Tale of the Fairy and the Woodcutter. I\’m watching more shows now than I\’ve done in months.

My favourite song off the album.

After 24 hours of listening to Don\’t Mess Up My Tempo in its entirety, I have begun to appreciate a few more songs. Ooh La La La, Sign, and Oasis are my favourites, Gravity, Damage, and Bad Dream are growing on me. I\’m still on the fence about 24/7. I hate Smile On My Face and With You. I like Tempo but I hate the chorus and consider it super tacky.

    I like Exo as well and I would consider them as my top boy group but I am also underwhelmed by this album. I’ve liked them since “Growl” and enjoyed their songs ever since, with Exodus as my favorite album of theirs , but the latest has yet to grab me despite a couple of listens.

I am somewhat disappointed in the new album. I don\’t know if it was because I had a big expectation of my first real comeback, but I didn\’t like it. The sound that makes EXO\’s music was missing for me. The songs didn\’t sound like what EXO would normally produce. I don\’t know, something felt severely lacking.

    Awww that’s too bad. For me, this is a solid af comeback, and I’m so glad I pre ordered the album <3 Each track is A+++
    The only thing messed up are Yixing's lines in the Chinese version of Tempo 🙁

    That’s too bad!! 🙁

    I personally loved it a lot, more than other albums, possibly!
    EXO always tends to change things up, they never stay with the same style.
    This time they tried something different again; I liked it because it can still showcase how beautiful the members’ voices are, that’s their strength, imo! 🙂

    I hope that maybe a few more listen can make you change your opinion of it, I experienced something like this before! ^^

      I hope I like it the more I listen to it because I’ve been listening to it a lot all day. I like when EXO does things that are different while still keeping their sound, I did start stanning because of Ko Ko Bop after all, and even though I became a solo stan a few months ago, I still really loved EXO’s music. I already bought the album, but I just wished I liked it enough. It sounds too much like other SM boy groups’ songs, I think that’s what I didn’t like.

        I can see what you mean. I definitely heard a bit of NCT in some songs 🙂
        They share a lot of their producers/writers, so it’s not that strange..
        I liked The War less than this new album, but it definitely had a more distinctive sound, different than other groups, SM ones included.

    Interesting… as someone who doesn’t really listen to or follow EXO that much, I actually liked this comeback a lot, and enjoyed the album more than most other comebacks from anyone this year.
    But I’m not an avid EXO-L so I’m not really sure what that says. \^-^/
    What is your favourite EXO album? I am curious 🙂

      My favourite EXO album was the Lotto repackaged album. There were a lot of really good songs on it and my irreplaceable favourite, One and Only, is on that album. I just feel like they went too left with this album. A lot of the songs sound like something either NCT or SHINee would make. I have nothing against these groups though, but their music more often than not, doesn’t appeal to me. I really liked Ooh La La La though because I felt like I was listening to EXO then.

        One and Only is my most listened to EXO song! I love it so much. It’s a never-ever-skip song for me. Hands down one of my favourite EXO songs ever. Also on that album: She’s dreaming, They Never Know and Lucky One. SUCH BOPS

          I love She’s Dreaming so much as well. Tracks 8, 9, 10, are my most played songs on that album other than Lotto.

            They Never Know was really out there pushing EXO’s limits tho, lyrics-wise. I’m always sad they’ve never performed it live, but I think it’s too risky. The fact that they even released is a miracle tbh

            @vipsky4796 you’re the 2nd person I’ve seen say this about They Never Know. I never thought of it as a risky song, I really liked the message of the song though.

            Korea isn’t pro-LGBT at all and the song practically screams pro-LGBT vibes – a perceived ‘forbidden’ love, about which other people curse you and your lover for but the two of you are standing strong through it all- the lyrics are something along those lines. Personally, I loved the lyrics (and the music) but it could have become an issue and I’m so glad it didn’t.

        Ooh cool! I shall go check it out then. ^-^
        I don’t listen to NCT but I did get SHINee vibes from several songs also. And I like SHINee so maybe that’s why I like them haha I don’t know.
        I like Ooh La La also. 24/7, Smile on My Face Oasis and it are my favourites.

          I heard Smile On My Face only once and that was while I was watching the showcase, I’ve skipped it every other time I’ve listened to the album today. There is no oomph to it, in my opinion. It was touted as a sort of Promise 2.0 but it didn’t deliver for me.
