Beanie level: Wrongly accused fugitive

One scene from WWW reminded me that in Korea wooden sticks lie everywhere are in abundance and every professional gangster or even aspiring one have one handy. But they look like raw wood and I always wonder how they deal with splinters? Are baseball bats really so pricey that even organized crime can’t afford them?

I feel like this week WWW was a bit of let down. Maybe because premiere sets my expectation really high I didn’t like characterization of Hyun as crazed woman with anger issues and Tami approach to romance in typical “deer in the headlight” manner plus this week moral dilemma left me bit baffled, is information about public figure/ celebrity past (embarassing) job really a private matter that need to be protected? I would understand if it was really private material but in most countries law regarding public figures and expectation of privacy is more lax than for private citizens.

Reading book on history of Korea and political structure of Arthdal make some sense, even Wahan tribe has it’s historical counterpart, but that’s about it, regarding making sense in Arthdal Chronicle

I can’t believe that “A” aka BI dealer is Han Seo Hee, also known as girl who rattled T.O.P for smoking weed. Seriously Kpop in 2019 is gift that keep on giving.

    No wonder YG got her a lawyer.

      And T.O.P was caught in 2017, and it was reported that she was previously for drug offence, so it must be this arrest.

Save Me 2, so good this week, actor playing Min Cheol is really perfect for this role, he adds great layers to the character. Elder Choi obsession with MC’s sister will be his undoing, that’s the one thing pastor won’t turn the blind eye on.

Arthdal Chronicles premiere was sooo bad in this ridiculous, silly way that will make it fun watch. Live watching and commenting with other Beanies will be wild ride, I can’t wait.

    I’m with you. Not sure if I can watch the second episode – but maybe just to chime in with other Beanies.
    It’s like a Korean GOT – which I didn’t even finish the first episode of that – the violence was too much for me – and I’ve watched many many gory movies….

Welp, I just started checking Jannabi after all the praise from Beanies, but it seems their career will end before it even started.

    I was so pissed at VP Lee. What a basic bitch. I just cannot believe his confidence was shaken like that. It was totally out of character with the entire series. UGH !!!!

      It felt like a some characters get personality transplant in the end because writer wrote him/herself in the corner. And with all that happened in the end how VP Lee was better option.

Dr Prisoner finale; no fireworks but solid finish for a drama, no last minute redemption arc, everyone stayed their twisted self to the very end.

Voice 3 premiere, the creators doesn’t want you to suspend your disbelief, they ask to leave your brain in another room plus a lot gratuitous violence against women, hard pass.

Misty: I simply adore Go Hye Ran, she is this amazing kind of character that leave you in awe watched on screen, but would make you run away screaming in fear in real life.

Banker this week was amazing!! This shows keep getting better and better. I loved how Han Suji arc developed during this episodes. I stopped guessing how will it ends, too much twists and turns.

    She should be smarter than this, right? At first I thought Yook said that to be a dick but….yeah, she is very easy to read.

      She should, but it hard for anyone to overcome personal baggage and her was that she never was value as s person even by her own family. That’s where her blind loyalty toward Kang came from, him and Yook were the only one who gave her chance based on her ability. I think what Yook told her was him giving her one last opportunity not to end like him, because as I see it ,that is his (Kang) modus operandi, he gives opportunities to people who wouldn’t have them otherwise, and earn their loyalty, but have no qualms to discard them if that will serve bank’s interest, he has the severe case of “the bank is I”.

Oooh, I didn’t expect that twist at the end of Different Dreams episode, I’m officially hooked. Photocards of real activist mentioned in this week episodes at the end were nice touch.
