Beanie level: Noble idiot

MY QUEENS. This is their best music video. The budget, the class, the fierceness. I am SHOOK.

Dramaland really threw back-to-back incredible dramas at me with Be Melodramatic and Extraordinary You. They wanted me to stop complaining about my drama slump and they succeeded.

First episode of Extraordinary You was delightful and fresh. Looking forward to the next episode.

Sad to finish Be Melodramatic, but it was a perfect ending to a perfect show. Thank you drama gods for bestowing this upon us.

    Viki still doesn’t have it subbed and my patience is running out. But I’m thankful to all Melo beanies for not putting up spoilers for the last two episodes 😊

      I’m trying not to put up spoilers! Haha! I’ll be sticking with the funny GIFs without context! Hopefully Viki subs it right away!

      For me, the entire episodes are just too good that I can’t bring myself to cut them into 15-second gifs. 😊

    The most creative show this year with a heart. Glad that you guys stayed with the show and loved it! Hehe

I just saw that Netflix US is getting a ton of new kdramas next week (Cheese in the Trap, Tomorrow with You, Signal, Bring It On Ghost). Except, they are coining them as \”Season 1\”. So help me if they only release 8 episodes…

    They usually put all episodes of older dramas even if they write “season 1”.

      OK good to know! They were releasing some dramas I haven’t watched yet, but I didn’t want to wait for them if they were only releasing the first half.

    Maybe I’ll finally watch Cheese in the trap and signal!

Received my BeanieBox a few days ago, but finally got around to opening it and checking out the goodies. I am so impressed! A great variety of snacks is included and they are not the “typical” ones you see in other Korean snack boxes. Thanks so much, Dramabeans!!!

Me @ the thriller elements of When the Camellia Blooms vs. me @ the rest of Episode 1

    I love it. Granted, I’m a sucker for “serial-killer-operates-in-little-town-while-two-people-fall-in-love-and-just-try-to-get-by” stories (I blame early 00s French television for it) but boy, oh boy, do I want more. I understand you’re stance though; it’s more than a little jarring at times.

AOA’s cover of Mamamoo’s “Egotistic” is incredible. Queendom is such a good show if you enjoy girl groups. Definitely recommend checking it out!

    That was really good. AOA is one of my fav girl groups but I haven’t been keeping up with kpop lately. Are there only 5 of them now?

      Yup, two members decided not to renew their contract and another left for mental health reasons.

        The only one I was aware of was Choa. Wow, down to 5 and still going. Good for them.

    This was honestly so good. I hope they win a round or two because their performance are BOMB. I hope no group gets eliminated this week because I live for the girl group interactions from this show.

    I wasn’t that excited for Queendom as it’s produced by Mnet but the girls interactions are cool! The show’s goal itself doesn’t matter to me as it’s great to see all girl groups I like (more or less) try different stages.

*sees previews for new fall dramas*
*gets excited*
Little voice in my head: You\’ve only completed 7 dramas this year. You won\’t be watching these anytime soon.

    I’m like you! I get all excited about the previews and then… don’t bother watching the dramas? Is this an illness?

    9

      Same. I know for sure that I will watch one of them (My Country), but all the others look exciting and then… I won’t bother. In my case I have Kdrama Overload Syndrome: too many choices so I end up choosing none.

        That’s a real syndrome all right, as is Netflix Overload Syndrome. Two hours scrolling for a show and u end up falling asleep with nothing watched except trailers 😅

          Oh, I do that too! I spend hours looking trying to decide which show to watch, scrolling through lists and lists of them, and then realise I could actually have watched two episodes of something.

          1

            I even save them on the watch later list, then i don’t watch any of it cos i’m saving it for LATER. It’s like what is the problem, just watch what’s saved as u will Never run out of things to watch!!

      Definitely an issue of kdrama overload mixed with a slump for me. My to-watch list is at like 100 dramas but I’ve been struggling to finish anything I start watching this year.

      Not gonna lie, the new shows DO look really good, though…I just have so much dramaland catch-up to do that I won’t end up doing.

    This is a slump but partial in my case because of the 8 dramas I’m excited to watch, i end up atleast watching one.

Calling it now: Be Melodramatic will be my favorite drama of 2019. The characters and dialogue are in perfect sync with my own life at the moment, making it even more enjoyable to watch.

Good thing Love Alarm shows what a 10 meter radius is because my dumb American ass had no idea.

Chungha’s “Snapping” was definitely my hot girl summer anthem, but this is my cute girl summer anthem.

    I understand why they Zimzalabim recently. That’s the real summer bop they are going for 😮

Watched the first episode of A Moment at Eighteen and yeah….that\’s some quality stuff. JTBC has been pumping out great dramas this year.

This is the first OST that has given me major feels since I Will Go to You Like the First Snow.

What happened to that drama that was going to have Ra Mi-Ran & Seo Hyun-Jin as leads? I need that in my life right now.

Real life has really gotten in the way of drama watching. All for good reasons, but drama watching has always been my \”solitude time\” and there is a lot less of that lately.

Hotel Del Luna ep. 1 thoughts: The budget looks to be triple of Hwayugi and the direction is much better. IU is fabulous. Remaining cautiously optimistic.

    I think Hwayugi blew their budget on a killer OST and they only had like 5 dollars left for the effects. 😂 They are ridiculously bad. *shudder*
    This does look promising though. And yes, IU is fantastic in this.

      Hwayuyi blew its budget on the cast mostly.

      I frankly can’t remember a single song associated to it.

        I absolutely loved the songs — and the cast. Hwayugi had so much potential.
