Pegasus Market. What a gem of a show that surprises, delights and makes me laugh out loud so much every week.
We’ve seen dancing Arab sheiks, dancing in between security lines, a fantastic rendition of Flashdance, and now a song about ramen.

The bad guy is so over the top bad that all I can say is he must be enjoying this so much from his horrid father role in Joseon Flower boys.

This week’s show was the best – how can I keep saying this? However we finally got some backstory to our characters that helps set us up for more stories ahead.

But then how can I forget those two walking in like the scene from Goblin. And when he says “I’m the Grim Reaper” and the other guy responds with “Hotel de luna?” I about fell off my chair…..

Beanies – this is my happy pill for the week. No matter what it makes me smile and laugh so much. I just wish I had more screen shots to show how incredibly well done everything is for all of it.

    And it also gave a very good insight into Bok Dong. The man is just tired of righting all of the wrongs the CEO is approving. The 1st episode when he spoke up about that product was probably what broke the camels back for him. It was BS that it became successful but at the end of the day, if it was not, he would have been in charge of cleaning up that mess again.

    I really don’t think there is a villain in this show. Kwon was not always like the mustache turning OTP person he is now. I think he is just tired of the way the CEO is running things and is ready to start looking out for himself in some capacity.

    The CEO honestly is the ‘villain’ of this series. His actions are the results that we are seeing. At least he has a bit of awareness at this point, but he is a douche for how he treated Bok dong when he finally was told no. You totally see where Gab gets his attitude from.

      Actually Kwon is not a “villain” in the typical sense, but more like the pretend incompetent, goofy trying-to-be-a-bad-guy villain. He is very over the top in his facial mannerisms that I just can’t take him seriously…
      But yes – the CEO is turning out to be the real b*stard in the show.

Tonight I was hungry for curd rice (you beanies from South India understand) and missing the times I got to celebrate Diwali with my Indian friends in Minnesota, so I looked up how to cook it.

Well, one thing led to another and after several YouTube videos on how to cook, I wanted to see some of my favorite Indian dance videos from Ed Sheeran’s “The Shape of You”.

You know that rabbit hole that is YT?

This dance video came up “Love is Love” and I was reminded of all our beanies who may suffer from who they love, but also those of us who have been smitten with “The Untamed” bug and thought you all might appreciate this.

It is so beautiful between the music and the dance.
Sigh – Love is Love everyone!

And Happy Diwali to all our Beanies who celebrate it! maybe I’ll have my own puja tonight

    Not from South India (I’m from a northern state), but I understand the craving for curd rice. Hope you were able to eat it. ^^

      I made some this weekend but didn’t have all the ingredients and though it was passable, it wasn’t the same. I’ll go to the local Indian grocery to get curry leaves and other things.
      Funny story: years ago I went to a party with my “Indian family” and tried some of the usual curd rice in the buffet. However the one person added chilis that burned my mouth so I couldn’t taste anything the rest of the night. If I remember right, she was originally from Bombay – but I always asked what dishes Simi brought to the parties.

      But curd rice well done is heaven.
      Yes, I miss those Diwali celebrations……

            Yes please 🙂 Do let me know.
            So no hangover! 🙂 Maybe because I did as you suggested and drank a TON of water. Also I was mostly REALLY sleepy & hoping my speech didn’t slur but it wasn’t a very noticable thing, is what I was told later by a friend so that’s great.

    I had to google curd rice, and it looks delicious. Unfortunately I can’t eat dairy, but a curd rice recipe led me to a recipe for lemon rice and now I know what I’ll be making for lunch tomorrow. So, thanks!

            I’m a terrible cook, so let me see if i can get my mum’s recipe this evening. Yes, its quite a bit tangy – lemon rice tastes distinctly lemon-y. Not so much that you struggle to eat it of course, but its a heavy, obvious lemon taste, not a mild, indiscernible, back of the tongue flavor.

            My mum was once a terrible cook like me. She retired about 3 & a half years ago & her cooking has improved massively, but you know, she’s no chef. So this recipe itself is objectively good 😀 Because the lemon rice she makes is fantastic!

            I’ve bookmarked this and will try soon. My family is loving basmati rice at the moment so I’m super keen to try something new.

            Thank god for the internet. Our parents didn’t have access to online recipes or sharing of recipes in communities like this. Everything is handed down the family, from mother to daughter or MIL to DIL and so forth.

            I have no flair for cooking, some people just have the knack of knowing the little things that adds the extra oomph. But I think anyone can cook to survive, LOL. I’m blessed to have a helper who cooks really well and can whip up a dish just by me sharing the recipe with her. My late mother was a great cook, I wish I have inherited half her ability. This said, there’s always something comforting about mom’s cooking regardless of the skill!

            I bookmarked a lemon rice earlier but then saw @greenfields was sharing her mom’s recipe, clicked the link, and there was the recipe I bookmarked. I’m glad it has your seal of approval G.

            @outofthisworld, I’m not a good cook. I’m a disinterested, don’t make me do this kind of cook. Unless I’m craving something. The best thing about adult children is I’m no longer legally obligated to make sure they’re fed every day.

            Do you have a recipe for naan? I am confused by what I read on the internet. Some use yeast, some don’t . Some use baking powder/baking soda which are two completely different things.

            One of my gastronomic delights is a good fluffy naan but not many restaurants can achieve it. Well, at least they do taste better than any of my feeble attempts.

            @fatcat007 is right – tomato rice is nice too, but I’m a lemon rice fan. 😀

            Outtie – for naan, we use “maida”. I had to look it up in English, & it seems its called white flour/refined wheat flour. It’s not naan without maida.

            Same with lemon, it’s a must with my rice lunch everyday, i just sprinkle lemon juice & salt on my normal rice.

            I only take the effort to make tomato rice cuz there’s no other way.

        I agree, partially because I agree and partially because I am so annoyed when I cook something amazing and my husband eats some and is like, that was fine and finishes the dinner with curd rice. So based on that, I pick lemon rice because I have a complex 🙂

    Happy Diwali @stpauligurl!

    I just woke up(overslept) and my eyes ain’t good. So I was like “Nice music…not the usual super high energy Indian dance….wow! she carried him! I wouldn’t be able to…..wait………………………………………………….eh…..is that a beard?………………..oh……..the untamed reference…..” Now, I want to see Wang Yibo and Xiao Zhan do this, LOL! Actually, in all seriousness, they can totally pull it off.

      I know!! wow he must have been strong!
      But still, it was beautiful.
      My son and brother are gay as are many friends of mine – but the untamed, I think really spoke to the love and commitment to each other that comes from true love.

    This was beautiful to watch. The editing was wonderful too. My initial impression was that it was a traditional dance ‘couple’, just because of the long hair. But the Love is Love title makes sense in hindsight. I wonder if they blended an ethnic dance with contemporary movements to help the flow (not an expert in dance(s), just curious. I don’t mean to offend!) The sand clouds reminds me of smoke grenades in k-pop music videos or colored dust.

      Wasn’t it beautiful? It reminded me of the days in the US when there were so many commercials that stated simply “Love it Love” – no matter who.
      I have many more friends who have been in long term (20-35 years) committed relationships and happen to be same-sex couples.
      Also I liked the clouds of dust simply as a visual…

      Can you image WWX and LZ doing a dance like this? (maybe they would use swords…)

    Happy Diwali!
    I couldn’t get into the spirit of the festival this year, unfortunately, for some reason. Maybe because I was really busy right up until the day and there was no time for the enthusiasm to build up.
    But we had family over for Bhai Dooj as usual and it was a riot just as it always is. My sister was there for the first time in years and she’d forgotten how to do the…what’s the thing for the brothers? I know what its called in Marathi (ovalna), not in Hindi. Indian Beanies may understand this vague description.
    Anyway, she’d forgotten how to do it, so she did it thrice for one brother, because she kept going back to the beginning when she messed up, twice for the next and once for the third. And everyone kept yelling suggestions and teasing her all the while. It was hilarious.
    I hope everyone else had a good Diwali!

    I am from South India and I am *here* for the curd rice appreciation! There are a few variants of it as well. Folks from one part of South India use pomegranate seeds (along with green chillis) to make it. In my state we just have it with tempering and sun-dried curd chillis (it sounds strange but they’re the BEST)

    I see lemon rice got some love as well, have any of you tried tamarind rice? It is tangy and lovely (although we have to eat a lot of it at festivals and it can get a bit much.)

    3

      yummm tamarind rice – I’ll look that up later today.
      It is morning and I just got up to see all these comments. This time of year is hard for me due to all the holidays – but it was always a special time with my Indian friends and we’d get together for a big Diwali party, thanksgiving and then New Years. They became my “intentional family” after many years.
      But I do NOT miss those hidden chili’s in Simi’s bean curd. My mouth hurt for hours!

Okay the weekend is here, and we are facing two new episodes Vagabond (or Vagabad?).
So far, we seen car crashes, bus crashes, drones, druggies who go into shock over and over, assassins who can’t seem to get their target, NIS agents who can’t seem to find or protect their targets.
Now we had a surgery on a femoral artery only using a cell phone for guidance, a blood transfusion – all in an office where somehow there were no surgical supplies.
Then the NIS assassins were all killed by a C4 bomb, except for 3 people who were standing 10 feet away.
A chicken-selling spy and high-fives on a cargo ship like it was the Titanic.
So, what haven’t we seen/or endured at this point? Every week writer Nim has pushed and stretched the boundaries of logic and sense – so what is there? What else can happen to make us laugh or roll our eyes into the back our heads?
Someone (aka Dal-Geon?) will suddenly pilot a plane or helicopter them to safety? Falling off a high-rise and surviving? Cooking a 10-course gourmet dinner for the team?
Any ideas or suggestions about how much worse it can get?

    We need bigger explosions, new vehicles, more interesting characters..so:

    The ship is torpedoed by a secret NIS submarine.

    Our foursome take to a lifeboat; they are saved by a mermaid princess (Jun Ji Hyun cameo) who recognizes the Monkey King and gets them safely through the cordon sanitare that the NIS tries to erect. (Opportunity here for lots of super secret looking surveillance vehicles to fly swim crawl whatever across the screen).

    While on the beach, a rag tag group of K-pop wanna-be mercenaries driving really cool ATV’s and accompanied by Ma Wang runs across them and they make a deal…

    3
    2

      They make a deal for an all-day spa experience where the female agent does hair so she can blow out the hair of all those k-pop wannabes.
      But then the North Korean assassins – the unkillables(?) crash the party and demand new styling so no one will recognize them as they try to find the mermaid.

        Aha. Hyun bin makes a sizzling appearance as a North Korean agent with an accent and a hair, styled for jungle angst. Suzy gets drunk on soju again, and kisses him, for the third time. The next day, she is fired.

          I would like a PG version of Vagaback. It shows clothes torn, exposed backs, and lots of raw, angsty skin. On DG and the Rock, of course. The Rock’s face would be broody, like his face, and hot. DG cracks two raw eggs on it, and good lord, the eggs steam, and cook in seconds. DG gets rid of the stove. From then on, he cooks all his meals – bbqed trout for dinner, too – on Mr. G’s smoking hot back.

        IF we’re going to see any Flying Tank, it won’t be coming from NIS. Their intelligence is not even close to that level yet. It will come from the alien monkey from outer space who came to fetch their Monkey King.

    Stay tuned for…
    A genius dog to make its bone-crunching appearance soon. This is a specially trained agent, capable of sniffing out targets within a 100 feet radius. It was trained by a genius monkey, so expect lots of obscure agent-laden gibberish, suitably decoded by Haeri and Our Hero. Vagabone stuff, indeed.

      Does the genius dog have to sniff everyone’s butts to make sure they are the right targets? what we don’t realize is that she/he is a little blind in the middle eye.

After feeling sorry for myself all Saturday night I got up and watched 2 more episodes of Pegasus Market. How can this show only air one episode a week????????????????????????
Did my usual de-stress project and dug up a huge old rhododendron bush and cleaned up around the yard. Watched (or re-watched) more of The Untamed and worked on some photos of some happy dahlias and zinnias in my yard.
So, while I can hardly move today from soreness, I am feeling so grateful that I can count on all you wonderful beanies around the world to envelope me with virtual love and hugs.

      I had no idea that I wasn’t watering them enough all summer until it started to rain and cool off for several days. Then they all just went wild with blooms. I call them my happy dahlias.
      Oh, and zinnias are such crazy flowers – I love them!

        I understand that they are difficult to grow, you are to be commended! I’m too chicken to even try them 😕

        1
        2

          Actually they aren’t difficult at all. I plant the tubers in the ground and then try to stake them when they are bigger.
          And I think what makes them hard is digging up the tubers and storing them during the winter.
          Here in the Pacific Northwest our winters aren’t so harsh that I have to dig them up.
          And they come back every year. There is a dahlia farm about 1.5 hours north of me that has a festival over Labor Day weekend. You should see all the crazy photographers in the 40 acre field when the sun is just coming up.
          Try them – they even grow in pots!

          1
          0

          @stpauligurl thanks for the info and advice! I live someplace where the tubers have to be lifted and I think hardly anyone sells dahlias locally. I know I can find them online for my pots, that’s a good idea.

          2
          1

            And when you get them – look online for all sorts of information about growing them. I use GOOGLE for EVERYTHING. Even what bugs are eating my flowers?
            good luck!

Had a good if uneventful day today (my favorite kind of day) but this evening I made the mistake of looking for information I probably shouldn’t have. As a result I think my heart has been broken into a thousand pieces.

There wasn’t enough alcohol in the house to dull the pain so I did the next best thing – looked for a drama or movie to distract me. Unfortunately I couldn’t keep going with The Untamed, I was up to date with everything I wanted to watch…..

Enter Pegasus Market.

OH. MY.GOD. this is gold!!!! So many beanies have been talking about how much they enjoyed it and now I know why.

I will admit they had me with the “car wax that grows hair” and left me with the sunflower mask I’d love to find for halloween.
So thanks to all the Beanies who commented on this show. They must be having so much fun making this show!!!
It was certainly just what I needed to watch tonight.

      Thanks Bam – a month or so ago I wrote that my sons had both cut me out of their lives and how hard that was. Everyone was so wonderful and supportive. Yesterday was my granddaughter’s birthday and so I went to FB to see if anyone posted anything about her.
      By chance I remembered that my in-law (daughter-in-law’s father) was on FB. So I looked him up and didn’t see a photo of my granddaughter, but instead a new baby from dec 2018. So it looks like she has a sibling.

      in retrospect it was probably a stupid thing to do – but I so wanted to know something about my granddaughter who is now 3

      Yes it hurts my heart big time and I still don’t know. But I do know that I’ll get used to it eventually and the pain will lessen over time..

      Thanks for the love and hugs everyone. It’s now morning and I’m going to watch the next episode of Pegasus Market.

        Oh Jo – it’s not stupid at all. You wanted to know because you care. I’m so sorry to hear that. *hugs upon hugs upon hugs* Gosh, I hope you don’t mind but I’ll be praying that you’ll be able to see and hold them one day, in person.

    I’m so glad you discovered AKMU! I can appreciate a great blend of male-female voices and in that they are masters. Also, the sister Suhyun’s vocals great in how clear and pure it is. They have tried a few genres, but their forte is in their lyrics and the indie vibes, so do check them out more if you’re in the mood for that type of stuff. I especially love their pre-debut + first album. 🙂

      I think that song is in my playlist but I had to look them up again because their voices were so familiar. Apparently they went by the name Akdong Musician. So I’ve been listening to them for awhile – but this song – heck the whole album has been playing on my phone all morning.

    ooh! Loved it! Thanks for the rec! I had tried their title off of this album but wasn’t into it. This is beautiful though! I would also like to recommend another song of theirs that I really like – Melted.

      I started this song not even knowing who the group was and this song stopped me in my tracks it was/is so beautiful!!!!
      After that I had it on repeat most of the morning.

      Now I have all their albums in my playlist – but this song is my all favorite. It turns out I’ve been listening to them for years but didn’t really pay attention other than “oh I like this song!” until I heard ‘Chantey’ this morning.

      These two have such beautiful blend with their voices and harmonies. I don’t even need to know the words as the melodies and beats are enough.

Hell is other People Episode #3. This show is completely addictive but not sure I\’ll continue.
Note to beanies –
Do NOT watch this show while eating!
Make sure you are able to turn off the sound and look away from the screen at times
The Grim Reaper from Goblin has taken a turn to the dark side….

    I was just watching his Iceland episode and wondering if they purposely pair him with women that won’t be able to stand him. I bet they do. They at least tell them to not put up with him.

Moment at 18 episode 13. This show is giving me so many different feels on every level. Mostly pain for these kids and their awful parents. But Mr Oh – he is the BEST!!
Please let them be happy ok?

    Hwi Young cracked! But I think I like it this way – he’s given up trying so hard for them and tested how far can his parents go with this.

    In SKY Castle, Yeh Suh scared me the most when she became mentally unstable over school and her life events. I thought Hwi Young would go down this route, but looks like he is fighting harder.

Rookie Historian Episode #11

@snarkyjellyfish – today you asked if this show was fluffy and cute enough to watch. YES it is! And this latest one is so cute. Between a prince and a historian falling head over heels in love with a simple kiss on the cheek – historians fighting like thugs, and a eunuch who is so world-weary he is simply scene stealing, I really do recommend it.

Yes there are the usual politics, but there is also funny sound effects and a prince who is really as innocent as a 5 year old, a female lead who is intelligent and determined to create her own destiny.

But tonight was all about standing up and fighting for what you believe is right.
It seems that once again it is the students who push things to the limit (see Hong Kong 2019, Tiananmen Square – 1989, Gwanju South Korea -1979, students in Iran-1999, the flower power movement in the US in the 1960s – and the list goes on…)

But our protagonists decide that their leader can’t do whatever he wants just because he is the king! (how does this King remind me of some idiot in the WH who thinks he is “the chosen one”?)
Truly a fun show and I’m enjoying every episode.

An aside – do we have another ship to launch between Min and Sa-hee? I sure hope so – he is a much better match for her than the crown prince.

        I’ll definitely be giving it a shot this weekend if I can. I really just want some cute fluff to watch because work and life have been too busy lately and I need brain candy to relax with.

          Understand completely. Is your boxing classes helping at all? If you were closer I’d invite you to come dig things up in my garden this weekend!

          1
          1

            Ha, thanks! That does sound relaxing. Boxing helps, but I haven’t been to yoga in three weeks and I think that’s a big part of it – it’s how I reset for the week and my brain hasn’t had that in nearly a month now. I don’t garden (big city) but I do have a lot of houseplants (I may have a problem) and tending to them is my other routine that’s been disrupted and throwing me off. I’ve been busy with family the last three weekends and I need a break for myself to recharge. Work is busy, but not horrifically stressful, which is good just tiring. Hopefully this weekend is free for me to relax/binge something.

    Officer Yang for the win! I loved his speech. He’s so right about what if they let the king see the records, it would take hundreds of years to correct it and would waste hundreds of years of suffering the past historians had to endure.

      Officer Yang is really quite fun. He has been overthetop with his reactions about everything so far and frankly a bit annoying – but now that he is showing his true value as a leader I love him!
      (Especially how he hides in the back and encourages everyone else from the sidelines.)
