    Is it only the episodes or are the making off scenes at the end of each episode included too?

      i watched a few, i didn’t notice any making of scenes…

      but it’s still so corny and cute! terrible lighting at times that i didn’t notice back in the day…

        I watched it on dramafever because it wasn’t accessible in my region on dramafire. I’m not sure if it was since the first episodes or half way but depending on sites, you could have these making off from the same episodes.

        Anyway, I have good memories even when Roy Qiu’s character drove me crazy not realising that he was in love with the FL and not the 2FL. I watched it around 2015 and just rolled with the low quality production. I watched Marry Me or Not, with the same lead couple, so it felt like they both upgraded since Office Girls haha.

        Devil Besides You is actually the one that aged really bad because of not only the production but the cheesy lines made me feel so sorry for the cast 😂😂

          but he’s so cheesy and goofy and CUTE… i just have it rolling so i can look up and see his cute smile every now and then.

          the movie he did was recently – he was very very good in it. a serious role, one his dramas don’t let him portray.

          but yeah, i remember reading that he is that “worst boyfriend in the world” with a lot of his leading ladies… tho i read he HATED the FL in Miss Rose?

            or rather, they hated each other…

            Really? I’ve never read anything negative about him and Megan Lei. There was something going on between him and Tai Le, the 2FL in both Miss Rose and Office Girls, while he was dating Tang Yan FL in (Waking Up Love). He also dated Rainie Yang btw lol

            I can only think of Qiao En, the FL in Easy Fortune Happy Life and an other drama they worked on together, that hated him after they broke up.

    Makjang that you didn’t know you wanted. I detest it rationally but I enjoy the craziness.

hearing about the suicides – most recently Goo Hara – is really horrifying… there is something terribly wrong with the SK entertainment industry to have so many people killing themselves…

    I´m wondering just how isolated these young people were that they couldn´t tell anyone? Is there some hushing policy? It needs to be brought out to the open, this cannot continue!!!

      it has to be a cultural — netizens posting harsh comments daily/hourly? hmm, sounds like our US president trump to the same detrimental effect…

      does this happen in other countries as rampantly as it does in SK?

        does anybody speak finnish? there were good articles in Helsingin Sanomat newspaper. I could find them or copy them (think it was for subsrcibers in full)

    I think it is beyond just the entertainment industry in SK, they just get the press. They have a very high suicide rate rate. I think it is one of the highest.

      Yes, it’s a reflection of a problem in the wider SK society. The entertainment industry is just part of it, but this is truly horrifying.
      I think for it to change, a huge cultural shift needs to happen so that people think of mental health as JUST health 🙁

      5
      1

        Yes. Overall mental health and quality of life.
        Because of dramas I always wonder how important sleep is in Korea. It sounds silly, but it seems like everyone is always working or studying way into the night. It is seen as praiseworthy, but it is not healthy for the body or the mind.

      🙈 only @melovestage knew how desperate i was.

      pretty sure it was me who mentioned Roy Qiu few months back. 😁

      i still needa rewatch this movie coz i was so distracted by my bunch of friends the other time, when i used one of their netflix acc to watch it.

        he still looks adorably cute… normally when he does rom coms he can get over-the-top, but in this story he was amazing in that his character makes you want to dislike him, but you can’t or you don’t……

My Country – the men are so handsome, Jang Hyuk has never looked better, Woo Do Hwan is getting more handsome as he looks ever so slightly more mature, and Yang Se Jong is perfect in this role!

is it just me or… the BEANIE BOX thang… $40/mo., seriously?? would we pay that for streaming videos? what is this…….

    It is on the higher end for a snack type box, but I guess it may contain other things. The last one I tried had different levels and went from around $15 -35. Plus, it is international shipping and I dont see that as an extra fee.

    They say the value of it is $60 though. Getting $60 worth of stuff for $40 doesn’t seem too bad. Although I’m not ordering one either.

    Dramabeans does cost money to run, so this is a good way to help combat those costs while also giving Beanies some treats (literally😂)

    I’ve never used it, but that doesn’t come up for me. Inserting cool in the middle works, but not sure it’s what you’re looking for since I’m not familiar with the site.

    Yes I guess they stopped updating dramas quite a while ago. Dra**cool or kdra**hood or fastdra** still works.

      i was watching on that site just the other night… weird… maybe it’s my xfinity… some new security things that block some websites that are not secure… i pay money for that???

        Probably some security thing that’s blocking it. Honestly these sites are all full of ad spam, that too not the nice one. I have had my laptops destroyed because of these and I switched to netflix and viki but then again not all shows are available in my region so I have to go back to get my big three (kbs, sbs, mbc) drama dose.

    The flip side of “No body not dead” is “IDENTIFY the body!!”. Fingerprints and DNA.

    My guess is the kleptomaniac waitress swiped the bracelet and a USB full of importance evidence (is there any other kind of USB in kdramaland?)

      i, too, had this thought, but if we’re right than that takes all the air outta the mystery, right… and in these cases when it turns out i’m right, it pisses me off…. so i hope we’re wrong!

    That is where I took off my headphones and looked out the back porch to see what the birds were doing. I could see when it was over by the color of the screen.
    Somehow I kept watching.
    Episode 4 is not like that – but it’s creepy and now I’m wondering if our protagonist is going to slip over to the dark side. He has some pretty crazy and scary feelings showing up in his imagination. Glad this is only 10 episodes, and glad I can look away and turn off the sound when needed.
