Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

Many fun things about this, including (i) Yeol and Hyun jumping when the confetti cannon goes off, (ii) Hyun and Chen’s amazing live vocals, and (iii) Suho and especially Kai’s great dancing.

Had a bad day. Didn\’t do too well on my tax exam. On the upside, I got to watch \”Parasite\” with a close friend. It was great and disturbing. I just hope my mood didn\’t drag on my friend\’s experience.

Honestly, the more I listen to this song, the more I love it. This dance is also amazing; it’s one EXO’s best. I can’t wait to watch them on Radio Star and Knowing Bros.

    I actually listened to this song last night for the first time. I personally didn’t like it but I am also not a fan of kpop. But I did love their MV. Was really well done and cool. My major thought through the whole thing was ‘wow that guy with blue hair is hot in that crop top’ lol

Time to eat my words. The thing that happened with the last three EXO comebacks (and Baekhyun\’s, SC\’s, and SuperM\’s comebacks) happened again. \”Obsession\” is growing on me very quickly.

I thought I would be posting a lot of EXO stuff. But, to be honest, I\’m not feeling this comeback. None of the songs are particularly good. The MV is visually great, but that\’s not enough.

My fanwall for the next two week is probably going to be 90% EXO.

Now that Nokdu and Extraordinary You are over, I\’m very worried I might get trapped in a drama slump. I don\’t want to complain too much though. 2019 has been a great drama year so far.

    There’s still Crash Landing on You and Chocolate coming so crossing my fingers they will be good too!

The end of Nokdu is very Oedipean. Gwanghae is like Laius.

I just discovered Taste of Love (while I was supposed to be studying administrative law…) and now I\’m in love with Jaejoong. Are the episodes fully subbed anywhere? Is he in any other shows?

Whenever I watch an interview with a Korean actor or musician, the interviewee always says he or she is \”shy\” or \”introverted\”. Why? Not all of these people are actually shy or introverted.

    So, from a Vietnamese/Asian perspective, there us a turn of phrase that translates into being modest rather than “shy” or “introverted.” However the words literally mean shy. Maybe that’s what they mean, that the actor is acting introverted or shy because they are being modest about themselves.

      I think this is probably right! I might just be viewing a high-context culture through a low-context cultural perspective. My parents come from South Asia and often they or other immigrant family friends that are originally from the same place say or do things that only make sense if one picks up on the implicit message, which usually requires some background understanding of and shared assumptions from Pakistani or Indian culture. I guess a similar thing might be happening here. It may be that describing oneself as introverted or shy, even one isn’t, sends some sort of positive social signal – that one isn’t overbearing or assertive, that one is polite and rule-following, etc.

Beanies, who do you think the main characters are in the new manhwa at the end of EY?

    Su chul and Saemi may be? It was really weird to see a shy and quiet Saemi tho! And NamJoo cracked me up. The way he drank that strawberry drink with that much intensity lmao!

    NamJoo and Saemi,with SuChul as second lead. It was early in the comic and Saemi and the others saw SuChul as perfect, while they dismissed NamJoo. So by K-drama logic it is possible. 😉
    Also, everyone was on the opposite side of their Secret social ladder, so since Saemi did not get Namjoo in Secret, maybe the Writer wanted a change? 😛

      On a second thought…the Kyung fangirl with the ponytail seems to be intrigued by NamJoo and stares more often and longer at him than the others do, and she is always in the scene….Hmm 😛

Extra-ordinary You ended the way I predicted. Having said that, this entire drama was lovely. I\’m so proud of this cast and so grateful to the drama writer. Watching this show has been a treat.

Gwanghae is a comically stupid character.

One of my favourites from SuperM. This look really works for Baekhyun.

I’ve been waiting months for a live performance of “Betcha” that I could watch online! Did not disappoint.

The ending of Melting Me Softly was about as stupid as I expected.
