Beanie level: Errand boy

I used to annoy my elder sister all the time. Always interrupting her studies, mimicking her and basically never let her have a moment of peace 😁.

Then it was time for her to prepare for her college entrance exam. She went away briefly for coaching. When she came back, she had got a very cute doll for me. My mother named him delta. And I loved it so much. I nuzzled it so hard that it’s nose fell off and my mom had to stitch it back. (No I’m not embarrassed). It’s nose is still black from it.

Then it was time for my sister to leave for college. I understood objectively that she was going to leave for a long period of time. But I guess I didn’t grasp the magnitude of it then.

Then we had to shift because of my dad’s job. All our stuff were packed in boxes, delta included. Our first few days in the new place, we were staying in a guest house because we were slowly unpacking and our home was not ready yet. I fell sick and couldn’t eat or sleep. It was a small town. It was night. It was raining heavily. My mom was worried. But she took me to our house and unpacked delta. I took it and slept peacefully that night.

Next day, my fever reduced.

Love

Children of nobody episode 29-30

1

    I think the psychiatrist was the one who operated black chat while eunho did the groundwork (now it seems obvious , I know). Because the person who was chatting was able to read people’s minds and explore their deepest secrets and wishes. Also he’s composed and calm, and the murders were anything but, especially hana’s dad. And maybe hana told him about her sibling. I think he hypnotized them using the ballerina music box. I mean, they kept focusing on it too much.

    2
    1

      Also I think the real se Kyung is probably buried in the fireplace. Because again they’ve focused on it too much. Even the father became angry when the other SK tried to hide there. Though I don’t understand why the stepmom would choose to stay with a corpse for so many years. Her twisted sense of guilt and her choosing to wallow in her misery is difficult for me to comprehend.

      I feel really bad for WK. Even her father was complicit in the abuse. He hid her own daughter’s death and brainwashed his other daughter. was he blinded by his love for his wife? Or brainwashed himself?

      3
      1

        I’m still not convinced it was the stepmother who killed the sister. I think it was the father. Stepmother has said too many things about a woman being responsible for making a marriage work and putting up with whatever their husband insists upon and even that if a marriage fails it’s the woman’s fault because she didn’t try hard enough. There’s no doubt she was abusive but I still think it’s more likely dear old Dad who did the killing.

        5
        4

          That’s also possible. Which would explain her feeling guilty sometimes. And why she would go through the torture of treating her own daughter as her stepchild. If she couldn’t take care of SK, she has no right to embrace her own child or something like that. I don’t know if I’m making sense.

          2
          0

          Agreed. And that would also explain her apparent sympathy for Ji-hye, the woman who was burned inside his car for hiding the abuse her husband did.

          5
          0

          That is what I have thought all along too! How else could he continue living happily with his wife and even going to such lengths to establish her daughter as his own?? It seems impossible! He wasn’t afraid of her to stay quiet out of fear! On the other hand… WK was under hypnosis… Would she remember wrong?

          1
          2

            One more thing… WK has forgotten her memories because of trauma, her father tells her stories about her school and her friends. Why does he need to lie? If there was nothing else wrong with her childhood he could have told her true stories…

            1
            0

            Definitely makes sense. If he abused WK, he would want her to forget everything including her own sister and her childhood friends.

          “I’m still not convinced it was the stepmother who killed the sister.”

          I agree with you.

          1
          1

            The other possibility is that it’s her that killed the sister. That she was the child that accidentally killed their sibling and that they covered it up for her. If that were the case – wow, the whole thing would explode next episode.

            It seems to me the show might be seeing that abuse is all around us in some form. That’s why we have such a complicated relationship with it. It’s why it perpetuates and it’s why it triggers us.

Bad Detective ep 5-
So yes he made a huge mistake in the past. Now that they showed the entire flashback, he has a very
valid reason to feel guilty.
Also I know TS was shocked and grieving. But he still seemed composed enough. He should\’ve grabbed the nanny cam before JCM got his hands on it. Speaking of, he seems to be more intelligent than the entire department combined. Pity that he\’s the bad guy. But it makes hating him that much more fun (though equally frustrating).

Anyone watching Bad detective? I just watched ep 4 and- why did Hae Jun open the door? She was at Tae seok\’s place. Surely she should\’ve realised that he wouldn\’t ring the bell to his own home? I get she was stressed because of the attack earlier in the office. But still…

      Also do you remember that there were 2 girls in the interrogation room that day all those years ago? They keep showing that memory again and again. Maybe the reporter is not YW? There’s definitely more to the story.

        @superwhopotterlock – glad you found out what might be the problem. What did the article say to do until you get it fixed? But more importantly – did you back up your HD???
        To me, that’s the most important question other than “did you use protection???”

          Hehe, protection is important.

          No I didn’t back up 😭. That’s why I’m scared. It mostly has series and films. So worst case scenario, I’ll lose them. It’s ok. Nothing can be done. It’s written that I need to open the laptop and clean it. Which I don’t think should be done by anyone except a professional. So I’ll call for help and hope for the best.

          Thank you so much for your concern and comfort. 😘

    For the first time I felt bad when Jin sang died(or will die). He gave such a grand speech, showing that even though he’s insufferable most of the time, he knows when to stand up for what he thinks is right.
    Is there no way to fix it without killing him? But if he gives another grand speech, I guess it’ll be okay.

      She’ll keep killing him until he gets it right ;). I definitely loved that there was improvement in his character

Terius Behind Me- Ep 15

0

    I had a hunch from the beginning that the director was the mole. They tried so hard(or maybe they didn’t) to paint the deputy chief as evil, with her exaggerated theatrics and all. I was confused when she met with the Voice for lunch,but anyway.

    Why do these people not look at the road before crossing? And how could they send such a high security prisoner with just one guy?

    Also whatever happens, I want yong Tae and Do woo alive. I want DW to go to iceland with JY and YT to meet up with his driver/secretary , enjoying whatever he produced on his farm. I was happy that he understood his situation and forgave him (of course he had to ruin the moment by borrowing money from him, but that’s why I like him!)

    I was right! HP was never possessed! He was able to resist Park il do! But he turned out to be such a jerk. Killing everybody just so he could torture him. I don’t know how I feel about
    the reveal though. They went to such painstaking lengths to convince us his grandfather was possessed, then refuted it and again tricked us. Although it would be pointless to introduce a new character, I suppose. And priest yang never was convincing enough. But I do feel extremely sad for him. He had a painful childhood just like our trio, but his adulthood also was stolen from him, forced to serve the guy who destroyed his family.

    1
    2

      I thought park Hong joo’s father was already dead when she went to meet him last. But what was the point of her character? She wasn’t caught or punished. I know we can’t have everything, but her ending scene felt abrupt and pointless.

      1
      2

        I think the point is that the evil is never completely eradicated. That she is a political figure, makes a particular and pointed statement to the corruption we’ve seen in South Korea and elsewhere.

        3
        1

          You’re right. My complaint is that she disappeared completely in the 15th episode and just made a guest appearance in the last. Maybe it was just me, but the episode could’ve done without that scene. Just a mention would be enough.

          1

        Finally our trio! I knew it wasn’t so easy when it seemingly got solved in the first 20 minutes. Plus this episode was rated 19+.As the minutes ticked by, I literally had my hand to my mouth. They were preparing us to the possibility that not everyone would survive and it was acceptable in the context. I thought I was mentally prepared, but turns out I wasn’t. When yoon failed to complete his exorcism underwater, I really thought that what priest yang said would come true- it was hard enough seeing HP sacrifice himself, but seeing yoon drowning made me almost scream out loud. Maybe I was expecting yoon to die because of the prophecy (don’t curse me, I love all 3 of them!). I was so confused in those last few minutes- whole death was slightly more acceptable ( because all 3 surviving would be a miracle).

        Which is why I’m glad when HP survived. Even if it means park il do is still out there. Also a possibility of a second season maybe?

      I like the reveal that Hwa-pyung was never possessed. That was a great reveal and it made sense. Interestingly, I never truly believed that Priest Yang was Park Il-do. I was waiting for another you-thought-wrong-scenario (as in the cases with Mateo’s older brother and Hong-joo). It was so disappointing for it to be grandpa, mainly because he was such a sweet character and the only real family left for Hwa-pyung. I still wonder how the possession worked in this show. Was there anything left of the real grandpa during those twenty years? How could a being so evil and devoid of compassion have been able to fool those around him? How could Hwa-pyung not have had any inklings?

        Was grandpa sweet or was park il do that good of an actor? Also like @waadmay said, he was hardly there at home to notice the change. And he had a suppressing ritual performed on him, so he couldn’t recognise any spirits.

    All this time, I was so angry and frustrated at his character. I don’t blame him for choosing to save himself, but when he tried to ‘protect YW’, I was wishing for him to just disappear. Now after the reveal, I feel so bad. Was I so blind that I couldn’t see that he was playing a very dangerous game or he did such a convincing job of having gone to the dark side? Please don’t die! Shin jae ha- you are truly an amazing actor.

Apparently, this show wanted to deliver the message of women empowerment, that women have every right to pursue their dreams, even after their marriage. What went wrong?

    In my attempt desperately to make sense of this, this is now a drama set in a restaurant. The dropping of the spoon in the muck was an issue because it means their health and safety license might get revoked. If Simar isn’t a good chef, clearly they’ll have to quit.

    Is that not what this show is about?

      Probably got drowned in the muck. Became an evil spirit spoon to take revenge on those who failed to save it. Came back and possessed the guy to fire her if ladoos were not tasty.

    hahahai love this SSK talk..
    when this show started it was a light family drama of 2 loving sisters. and now after so many years it turned out to be a bad tasted bhelpuri of all kind of plots, subplots, ideas and sadly still running…. why can’t they just take it off air if nothing new to show?
    why waste so many resources while shooting a nonsense drama which no one watchs …indian television is its all time low I guess….

      Thankfully, it got over this year. 2063 episodes in 3 seasons.
      I’m pretty sure people watched it, even if only for the purpose of making fun of it. That’s why it continued airing. People should completely boycott watching. That’s the only way to stop these ridiculous shows.

        exactly.. when people boycott such shows only then teams behind the scene stop making it.

          3

            Naagin is another Hit by Ekta… its a reprise version of Bollywood movie of same name starting Sridevi and Jitendra (ekta’s dad). and was one of the biggest hits.
            So basically ekta took the plot, put in some (below average) spcial effects, lots of over the top make up, and some eye locks of lead pair in one box. and every episode she stirs the box picks one thing and based the whole episode onto that…
            why people are obsessed i cant even understand either… everyone knows its senseless but still watches…
            may be to know new design of sarees or new jwelery or new makeup trend. cause if not i dont know why such shows even come on a channel at prime time.

      It’s good. Like I said in my previous post, their conversations are deep and philosophical (also because JI soo’s character is a philosophy major), so it was hard to understand at times, but since it’s only two episodes, it’s good for a binge watch.

      If you don’t mind spoilers….
      Also I apologize if I can’t explain it properly.

      It’s basically about the friendship between the two characters. JS is a student who has been rejected by the girl he likes and also probably lost his mother. So he keeps running at night to distract himself from his problems. He collapses and YJM takes care of him. He’s a homeless guy with his own set of problems. There’s also another mystery. The editing seemed a bit off to me, because there was a rapid change in between scenes. But you can give it a try, since it’s only two episodes.

I watched Ping Pong ball. It’s a 2 episode drama special starring Yoo jae Myung and Ji Soo. I usually don’t like drama specials, they tend to be very deep which requires a superior level of understanding (which I don’t possess). I like simple things that are easy to understand and don’t require much thinking. But it’s only two episodes. So here are some nice and profound lines from the drama (also posting because I want to sound a little bit intelligent LOL)

I just started watching Gangnam beauty. In episode 2 why did soo ah try to hit on that jerk senior?All the other guys were anyway hitting on her.
Why didn\’t he just try hitting on her from the start?She\’s considered \’superior\’ to mirae because she\’s a natural beauty isn\’t it? That\’s the vibe I got anyway.

8

    Soo Ah just want everyone’s attention on her so seeing jerk senior being interested in Mi Rae explained her behaviour. Also, jerk senior said he liked girls like Mi Rae the first time he saw her if I remember well.

    4
    1

      Then why did he suddenly change his mind after soo ah tempted him? If he actually liked mirae, he wouldn’t have been so fickle. He probably thought soo ah is a better catch isn’t it?

      3
      1

        Well he thinks of dating girls no more than prizes. He hates Mirae, but of course he hit on her since she is an easy target. However, once Sooah hits him, he thinks that dating Sooah is a better reward so he drops Mirae fast.

        4
        1

          Exactly what made him think she’s an easy target? She clearly looked uncomfortable when he asked her to do a love shot and also when he asked her out? Is it because she was being polite?

          2
          1

            For me he thinks that she is an easy target because she is 1) looking too (sorry) plastic, 2) a freshman (in which she has lesser power than him), 3) inexperienced with guys, and 4) no guys chasing her except him.

            Yes she looked uncomfortable everytime he approached her, but did he stopped? No, he didn’t until Kyungsuk playing as her knight and she stood up for herself

    What’s up with the lawyer? I don’t understand his character. How can he be so apathetic to his ex gf? When did he stop liking her? Even in the first episode he celebrated her birthday. They should’ve atleast shown how he gradually got tired of the relationship. But it was a sudden 180 degree turn after her sister’s death. I understand he’s working for the company, but how can he not show some sympathy for his gf’s sister? How can he not show the slightest remorse or feel conflicted for covering it up?
    What is the reason for his breakup?
    How did he suddenly become a murderer and again not show the slightest sign of guilt? I can’t hate him because I don’t understand his character. What is his thought process?

    0
    1

      My reading of his character is that he grew world-weary and cynical descending into nihilism when working as a prosecutor and experiencing the power of the riches over the justice system. The writer has dropped several hints about it here and there. There was a scene in the bathroom where the little voice inside let him know that what he was doing was wrong but that wouldn’t stop his behaviour. He has a conscience, but it’s weak. He’s an oppurtinist now who needs money no matter how.

      1
      1

        Yes that’s true. The way he treated his girlfriend after her sister’s suicide proved that he didn’t care about truth or justice or even being sympathetic to her. What’s more scary is that he ordered the murder of that loan shark so easily and his guilt over killing the girl’s mother also didn’t last long.

        1
        1

          Yeah, he is not what a woman’s heart desire as a boyfriend. After a slight hesitation he chose to turn his back on her girlfriend for the sake of money. I find his bored indifference chilling (and yet really intriguing), too.

          1
          0

    I like it so far. Especially after our female lead stopped crying and started taking more action.
    Lawyer, I don’t think he stopped liking her. He somehow got into his head that power and money trumps justice and He consciously made a choice to go the dark route. So he had to cut her loose.
    In her sister death case he knew that hey won’t win no matter what. The rich will twist the case and justice will never prevail. To save his gf from going through the legal process he lied to her. But he failed to realize what he did was the worst kind of betrayal. He has gotten completely worse in the last 2 episodes.

      I understand that it would have been futile to fight against the rich. My problem is he didn’t show an ounce of regret for what he did. And he doesn’t really seem like he’s still in love with her. If that was the case, he wouldn’t have been able to cut loose so easily. His change of feelings seem very abrupt.

@raonah I changed my answers from 1st choice to 2nd. It doesn’t really sound good, but I feel this is better than what I got previously.

      Hehe I couldn’t figure out how to post my result. I think the others posted from their phone. I did it on my laptop.

    Being in Fight My Way sounds like a great result!

      It was good till it lost steam in the last 2 weeks in my opinion. Same thing happened with WWWSK.
      And I did like personal taste. I don’t remember why exactly. Maybe because they handled the gay storyline really gracefully.

        I haven’t seen Personal Taste but it’s on my to-watch list 🙂

          It was the only LMH role that I liked. But please don’t blame me if you don’t like it. I watched it a long time ago. I think it was my 3rd kdrama. So maybe it won’t live up to my standards now.

        Personal Taste was a very tasteful show in every aspect except the clothes department! I remember having to rewind many scenes because I had been so dumbstruck by the clothes that I completely missed what was happening!
