Beanie level: Noble idiot

I’m five episodes into “Go Back Spouses” and I hate life. How am I supposed to be satisfied with them getting back together when the second leads are so perfect? Especially when you have this…

OH. MY. GOD. The Black Friday ad is basically a parody of Subway. I\’m dying.

Every time I think I can\’t love \”Because This Life is Our First\” more, the show tops itself. I relate to Su Ji so much right now. I have a disabled mom and no one to help. This hits home.

    I’m so happy that you found a relatable drama. Bless you!

It took me forever but I finally placed the music from Reunited Worlds where Ho Bang drags Jin Joo off. It\’s from the fan fiction scene in You\’re Beautiful!

Few shows really grab me in the first five minutes, but Reunited Worlds sucked me in immediately. It\’s beautiful and I think I love it.

    Me too. I loved it from the start. The leads are cute and I can’t wait to see Yeo Jin-gu and Lee Yeon-hee together. I really didn’t find her as bad as everyone says she is. I quite enjoyed her.

Your favorite drama has an unholy alliance with your most hated drama and produces a mutant baby drama. Describe the plot.

    A midnight errand boy has to go undercover at an elite nail salon where only flower boys work. He notices immediately that one of the flower boys is really a girl. He’s trying to find out about his father’s death but ends up stuck helping the nail techs solve customers’ problems way beyond their paygrade including ghosts that rape and abusive partners. He’s really close to finding out the truth about his father when he learns that the owner is a gumiho and the girl in disguise is her daughter. At this point, shit is too weird for our errand boy and he gets out of there, giving up on finding the truth.

      Is that the ever weird Nail Shop Paris? Which I watched in bemusement wondering if all the years I spent paying a therapist I should have spent getting my nails done instead?

    I don’t think I’m witty enough for this, but if someone can come up with a plot using Six Flying Dragons and the Flower Boy series, that would probably be it.

    Favorite TV show is reserved for the ones I grew up with: Gilmore Girls and Supernatural
    Movie: I just one day clicked on n#1 on imdb and watched that one. I agree with it’s placing. I also really loved The Bucket List partly also because of when, where and with whom I watched it.

    I have tons. I tend to try lots of new things to find new hobbies but few stick. I know some simple yo-yo tricks. I can hula hoop and do tricks with that.

    Maybe recognizing voices? I don’t know, I don’t have any particular skills/talents. Oh, I can make people laugh even if they are very sad. I don’t know if I am funny though or just ridiculous.

    Hye Sung from I Hear Your Voice. She was confident and bold. Plus she had a telepathic puppy who always had her back.

    Although I didn’t like her that much at the beginning and she wasn’t my favorite character in that drama later on either and her life was really difficult and short, I do have to say that I admired Eun Tak from Goblin a lot by the end. But I think I am okay with who I am. ^^ Hit me up though if there is ever a character that has my family and friends, is a successful doctor + writer, travels a lot and has good health, looks and a long life (and maybe has the ability to manipulate time? >.>) Otherwise – Nah 😋

Is there a drama character you’ve ever strongly identified with, and why?

    Ahjumma from Healer. I knit, I’m good at finding people and information on the internet, I like to eat kimbap. Just give me a dark room with food, knitting, and a computer and I’m happy. I’m also a bit cranky like her. And yes, if bad guys came after me, I’d grab my finished objects too.

    I don’t hate sageuk, but they aren’t my cup of tea. Which is a shame because they are so pretty. Also medical dramas. So boring.

    I’m not too fond of noona romances. At least I haven’t liked any I’ve seen, I just didn’t like the men. Actually, I did like High School King of Savvy but I was more in love with Lee Soo-hyuk than Seo In-guk. The main romance was cute though. Am I contradicting myself? Lol.

    High schoolers and Sageuks. I’m old and can’t get excited about the high school dramas anymore.

      Despite being in my late 30’s, I oddly do enjoy them. Maybe because they seem like an alternative to all the chaebol/candy dramas out there.

    Thrillers, capers, slice of life, the occasional clever rom coms. I like my shows smart with a bit of action.

    Anything time travel! Wait, is that a genre? ^^’ mystery then, yes I like a good mystery. However, I watch anything as long as it’s good and will probably give also the bad ones at least a try. ^^

    Answer Me 1997 is practically my life story. I was in high school around that same time and had a similar group of friends. I had the best friend that liked me and the gay best friend. In my case, I liked the gay friend. I had an incident with the friend that liked me on my 22nd birthday that led us to stop speaking to each other. It was only 15 years later that I realized I had liked him too. Sadly, while he pops up in my life every few years, we hang out once, then he won’t see me again for a few more years.

      Oh no :/ is there no way for you to become closer again? Missed opportunities and estranged friendships, how sad.

        I keep trying but it’s tough. He’s in a bad spot in life right now. He’s divorced with three kids. He’s working two jobs and living with his parents right now. My life isn’t all wine and roses as I have a chronically ill mother that dominates a lot of my time, but things look pretty good on the surface since I have a great job and just bought a house this year. I feel like he’s not going to attempt real friendship until he’s in a better spot.

          Ah….I emphasise with him a little, I know the feeling of wanting to be standing in a better place before you contact friends. The most helpful think then is always if they don’t ask about the situation in question and just focus on something completely unrelated when we meet. Sometimes being there for a person means keeping a certain distance be abuse closing that distance might feel more like nosiness to the other person. But I think you shouldn’t try to stay in contact 🙂 just being careful of his boundaries for now like you have been might be good

    Missed a train in China once. Didn’t speak hardly any Chinese. Managed to get myself on the next train and onto my next destination with only a little fuss and then managed to somehow crash the train’s staff meeting in the dining car. Why they didn’t throw me (and my travel buddy) out, I have no idea. They probly didn’t know what to do with these gringos who they couldn’t communicate with.
