Beanie level: Eunuch in drag

Just watched EP 23 and my God, the male angst is strong with this one. #GoGoSquid #CanGunstopbeingdumbforlikefiveminutes ?

I’m sorry, angst, I didn’t expect you for another five episodes at least. Dude, it wasn’t that long ago you were kissing belugas together, she even got you a cat and NOW you’re playing Noble Idiot?

    AUUUUUUUGHH! I haven’t seen ep 21 yet, but I don’t understand this angst. LIKE HOW??? They were just exchanging 😍😍 in ep 20?? When did this all happen?

    We don’t get a kiss yet. I refuse to count that peck as a kiss, even if it was super cute.

      I knooooow! I understand there are concerns in their relationship but, but… they looked at fish and she got him a cat, it’s waaaaaaaaay too early to start freaking out. Mom, what are you doing pushing your daughter away from the guy she likes and unto that bespectacled noodle of a student? **shakes head disapprovingly**

We were talking about \”Stewed Squid with Honey\” (the novel) aka \”Go Go Squid\” (the drama) with some beanies the other day and I found this blog if anyone is, like me, super interested in reading the book and absolutely incapable of reading Chinese.

    Thank you. I’m curious about it.

      You should try this! ❀️ Hoju’s really good translator. Also, her translation was approved by MBFB. 😉

      Also if you are curious about the flashbacks, they’re on the two prequels also translated and available at Novel Updates. 😊

        I’m so glad to hear it. I can’t really appreciate the quality of the translation (since I don’t speak or read Chinese) so it’s good to know the author approves <3. The writer of the blog is so nice too. I really love all the footnotes she took the time to incorporate. Such a wonderful detail.

    I may have spent a few (too many) hours reading more than one novel on this site. Maybe. I’m not telling.

Ni Na, my love, I wish you would just resign for real and go out to find your place somehwere that is NOT Fantasia. There are plenty of other ballet companies in the world that would be lucky to have you. Don\’t settle for being the understudy. Do what my girl Mathilde Froustey did and get yourself a soloist job in the San Francisco Ballet or something. #AngelsLastMissionLove

I’m going to just take a moment to appreciate Ha Jae Sook who plays Yeo-Woong in My Absolute Boyfriend. Not only is this woman absolutely stunning (that bone structure and those cheekbones are TO DIE FOR) but she almost make me cry this last episode with her whole speech about being a real woman and letting the man she loves go. Dramagod,s please give her a lead role, and Oscar and a modelling career.

    I’d love to see her in a bigger role if not lead.

    I was so mad at Bo Won in this episode when he talked about her swollen face.

WHHHAAAT? Now you\’re killing Yoon-Sung? No, Show, again, NOT the nice people. Also, sorry, but where did that fight come from ? What an epic, romantic, lovely death to give a character out of a fight that… didn’t need to happen ? Since when is it ok for a guard serving a noble house to try and kill the heir of said noble house ?

    HIS DEATH WILL ALWAYS MAKE ME UNREASONABLY MAD. IT WAS SO BADLY DONE COMPARED TO THE BODYGUARDS FAKE DEATH ARGSAJFDHG

      I’m with you. 100%. It makes a lot of sense that his character would nobly die to protect the woman he loves but… really? In the dark, with no witnesses, no grand gestures, literally minutes before his grandfather is exposed for his crimes? I… thought he deserved better.

    This was why I told you what I told you ☹️☹️☹️

    Yea, I will never not be mad and salty and every kind of pissed off about his death…. AND SHOW WAS DOING SOOOOOOO WELL WITH EVERYTHINGβ€” plot, romance, good second leads…

    I don’t remember the details but I do remember being pretty upset about the ending. The leads got together but what about the Prince’s friends? The one is dead and the other is supposed to be dead so they can’t hang out either. He’d even said in one of the childhood flashbacks that he thought he could be a good king if he had his friends by his side but now what? His friends are gone 😭

Little Princess for the win. Can SHE become King? Because no offence to the men in government, but I don\’t see any of you overcoming childhood traumas to help Park Bo Gum.

All right, Show, I feel like you fundamentally do not understand what I want. Stop killing the good, nice people who are trying to help and start killing the bad, mean people who are hurting others.

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds : we’re at the end of Episode 17 and now somebody else is hurt. **cries**

Oh my God, he twitched. HE TWITCHED. OH THANK GOD!!!!!

This series was really fun. I might do another one of those (or expand on this one) at some point.

    If I had to describe this look, I’d say it’s Betty Grable in the Jazz age had a baby on Mars with a retired golf caddy. I like all of this thing separately. Together, they confuse me.

    I opened this while at my desk over lunch and giggled immediately after gasping at whatever this – this outfit is supposed to be. My neighbors around me look up when I start laughing. I showed them a couple from earlier this week and they just didn’t get it.
    poor them right?

    It’s less weird suit and more weird headdress.

      It’s weird everything. Why is his shirt so long? Why is he wearing two shirts underneath that jacket while in the South of France in summer? And why are the legs of his pants so wide?

      And yup, also the headdress.

        I like the plaid suit itself it’s the weirdly long shirt and other things combined that make this a hard no.

I know, I know, they always tell us to β€œplay with superposition”, β€œadd some layers”, β€œgive it some va va voom” but then, one day, you overdo it and it looks like a British high school uniform ate a member of the British cabinet who had previously swallowed a Mormon missionary.

    I find these 2 so FREAKING ADORABLE and how they were soooo awkward at the beginning– you can clearly see her shifting her hand to the side in this pic as to not hold his hand/link arms with him– and then become close playful friends in the behind-the-scenes of INAR as the filming days went by πŸ™‚

    oh *gasp* – did they have to make him wear that? At least let his pants be long enough to cover the beige socks.
