Beanie level: Eunuch in drag

18. Hot Men Weird Suits
Woo Do-Hwan at the Louis Vuitton Gala.
A beluga’s job is never done apparently. I thought for a while : « oh, fashion is changing, maybe the stylist are over trying to make things that should never be on a human’s body work one way or another ». Lee Min Ho looked GREAT in Paris, Gong Yoo’s been killing the game and even weird-suit-afficionado Lee Dong Wook has been verrry stylish lately. And then, well, then Woo Do-Hwan showed up wearing his dad’s suit that he doesn’t quite fill yet.

    More like his dad’s pajama. All he’s missing is his dad cigar.

      He’s missing the clown-chic footwear that go with that getup.

    It saddens me that is the design for the show.

    Does someone hate him? Because literally no part of this look is good. Not the hair, not the suit, not the shirt, not his makeup. He looks not happy.

    It was the same with Choi Woo Sik— an over-sized suit

    He looks so short! How tall is he? Maybe the concept was that his head looks small, you know korean beauty standards, but it looks nothing like that.😂

    HOW!? How is it possible to make Woo Do-Hwan look bad!? That takes some of the most skilled stylists purposefully trying to sabotage him because its impossible otherwise. Is there a past rival who paid off some stylists? Or maybe a secret half-brother out for revenge? 😫

      I definitely agree it’s someone with a very big grudge.

      It is the great mystery at the heart of this series. I have a running theory the stylist are trying to get us to beg the men to take their suits off, but I don’t think it’s in the sexy way they (the stylists) were going for.

Ok, Crazy Extraordinary You Theory Time. Just so you are aware: I know nothing. Absolutely nothing. But if IS fun to theorize, so here we go:

Maybe the writer isn’t just bad. Maybe she’s so overworked (in the vein of the webtoon editor in Flower Boy Next Door) that her subconscious mind is playing tricks on her. Yes, I know the writer could also be a man, but in my head, she’s in her mid-thirties, suffers from asthma, and bundles herself in a hypoallergenic blanket when she writes because her office is always cold. Writer has not noticed, but she is so tired that her mind is doing things without her consent. I think the black hole that appeared in the first episodes are openings in her subconscious, and that’s how Haru ended up leaving his manhwa to inexplicably arrive into Dan-Oh’s. Things are getting blurred because, though Writer had a very definite plan as to what was going to happen in this manwha, the fact that Dan-Oh and Haru are pushing back is causing her to subconsciously make changes. I think the reason why certain stages do change and others don’t is directly linked to the writer’s state of exhaustion: if the writer is super focused, well-caffeinated and present, the scene happens as it was supposed to. If the writer is sleep-deprived, at the end of a very long day and reeling from a fight with her mother, then things change in the stage, which then in turn, cause the writer to try to correct course. The most dramatic example of this being Baek Kyung dramatically announcing is love for Dan-Oh to the world. We know pre-Haru Baek-Kyun would never have done that. But Writer thought that, well, now that Haru was there and the readers had seen him, the best way to get the story back on track was with a grand gesture on Baek-Kyung’s part, delaying the Nam-Joo/Ju-Da development for a few chapters.

Except Writer is going to get tired again, and now that Dan-Oh has real feelings for Haru, she will try even harder to change the story. Writer is bound to fall asleep at her desk again at some point, and Dan-Oh will change the stage, maybe irreparably this time.

    You know when you’re exhausted but still have work to do, you fall asleep then suddenly, your muscles contract, you jump and awaken. Maybe that’s what the Writer is going through when we hear the ~BLIP~ sound. She’s back to being focused.

    I love this! You even inserted coffee PPL.

    Though I hope your theory is not applicable to the drama writer too 🙈

    She is also being pressured by the readers to have more of the secondary couple Dan-oh and Kyung coz they seemed more interesting than the leads. They want a character like Haru to get Kyung jealous haha

    I love your theories! But I also have thoughts that maybe Secret Author is possibly writing Secret & Flower at the same time, both got deadlines and many revision from editors (she might possibly overworking to pay her bills), thus her minds got disarray and several characters got overlapped and jumbled. (Or maybe the author intentionally inserted Flower Characters to secret as Extras to add readers or making meta references).

Ok, just finished episode 16 of SKY Castle and 1) I can\’t believe how many adults are ready to throw Ye-Seo under the bus for the crime of being an annoying know-it-all and 2) Kim Hye-Na is possibly the worst person I have ever seen in a drama. I know the girl has a hard life, but my God, she’s rotten at her core.

    Hye-Na darling, I’m sorry to break it to you but your mom is the one who hid you. Ye-Seo has nothing to do with it and your desire to destroy her is absolutely pathetic..

I’ve loved Kai since forever, but now that SuperM exists, Taemin is making me waver. What is a girl to do? Can’t I just have them both?

    Come to the dork side! Taemin is my UB and while I don’t like the SuperM songs (yet), it’s been fun following them and seeing Taemin still be a dork as a sunbae. Lol

    But, actually you can be a TaeKai fan lol They’ve been friends for awhile!

      I see their faces every day when I drive in to work (they’re on the side of the Capitol Records building). I just don’t want to have to choose ever. They’re so precious

FINALLY watching Sky Castle and 14 episodes in, I\’d never thought I would ever hate a character as much as I hate Kim Hye-Na. She trumps all the worst possible Second Female Leads in dramaland.

Is anybody else watching When The Camellia Blooms on Netflix? I came for Kang Haneul but I\’m staying for the quietly badass female lead and the wonderful cinematography. I\’m in love!

    I’m sure many are watching this.

    I am too. I enjoyed the two episodes. I love the simplicity of it. From the clothes to their jobs to the local feel of the neighborhood to their daily routines. Even the natural lighting and camera work. So simple, and so so effective in this drama.

I went to KCon yesterday. These guys were here and let me tell you, I still haven’t recovered. I can’t believe they’re rookies. Wow.

Beanies, I need a good K drama binge recommendation. I\’ve been thinking about SungKyungKwan Scandal, The Moon Embracing the Sun or The Producers, but I\’m open to anything well-written and well-acted.

Lee Dong Wook gets TWO because I’m weak and can’t decide which one’s worst.

    The second one is worse. The Donald Ducks put the it over the top.

      Brightly colored Donald Duck vest over weird mauve tie t-shirt is much worse than the suit made from my fabric that looks like my grandma’s favorite chair.

      Oh, to be a fly on the wall when the stylist showed him his wardrobe that day.

      Funny – I didn’t even see the Donald Ducks as I was so distracted by the pose with his legs as far apart as possible. what is that about?
      But still I was trying to make sense of that sweater and scarf-thing – and totally missed the ducks. What in the world do these stylists think?

By the way, is anybody else unable to find EP 39 of Go Go Squid on Viki or is it just me?

    Yes it’s listed on a non-standard site called d-rama-cool-9 (remove the hyphens)

      Lots of episodes are missing too! 23, 30 to name a few.

      I do wonder, do you guys think it might not be because of video error as what viki was saying? Ep 39 was the episofe that Go Go Squid production team was under fire and being reviewed by the Chinese govt due to the map they showed that didn’t include all of China and its territories. They had to take the original video down but came back up with an edited version

        K, I checked here are the missing episodes on viki at the moment: 23, 30, 34, and 39

        This is really concerning. I’m not sure if this has happened with other series before.

    It went missing before but I messaged the Channel Manager for Go Go Squid. Try and send piranna a message if you want to watch on Viki. But like @stpauligurl said it’s also on the illegal sites.

    I think there is something going on… I can see that even on YouTube, the official (legal) channel that uploaded the series (albeit, without English subs, that’s why non-Chinese Beanies are turning to Viki for this series), CROTON MEDIA, has taken down, then re-uploaded a whole bunch of episodes 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

Tong Nian\’s fashion has been making my eyes bleed (seriously girl, what\’s up with all the \”destructurée\” shirts?) but her mom\’s outfits have been on point. #GoGoSquid #MomFashion

    omg, same! I love her but her clothes are awful especially those shoulder-less jackets! It’s probably for her character though but still…

      Yeah, I don’t know what those shoulderless jackets are either. They’re not keeping her warm, they look awful and they just flap uselessly around her middle. And the weird skirt layering has been bothering me as well. You can be dress modestly and not look like somebody emptied a bin of rags on you. Poor Yang Zi 🙁

Currently watching the last two episodes of WWW: Search. Baek Ta Mi should always take the stairs. Elevators are dangerous places in this show.
