Beanie level: Errand boy

I just read, for the first time, “Support Dramabeans”. The entire spiel and all the comments. 5000 beanie boxes to stay afloat? What became of that? I feel like one day I’ll click my bookmark and DB will be gone. So I say to y’all, once again, if that happens know that I’ve enjoyed my time with you.

Hey Never Twicers, does anyone think Eun Ji and Poong Ki will end up together? I think after they find out what terrible people the chairman and his DIL are they will find comfort in each other.

    They’re both just as horrible. I guess that they’re the same kind of terrible as each other and that’d be better than them settling for a slightly different kind of terrible.

      Imo, marrying for money is nowhere near as bad as the things the chairman and DIL have done. People marry for financial security every day and the marriages are just fine. It’s not like they are treating their respective partners bad. The chairman and DIL are a completely different story. Ruining other’s lives for personal gain is unforgivable.

        But both these people already know how terrible their prospective partners are and they don’t care. See Eazal’s comment below – these are awful people.

          Eun Ji knows but Poong Ki doesn’t. Eun Ji abandoned the very person that helped her the most. I guess Poong Ki is just waiting on his turn to do the same,

    I agree with everyone. Both of them are terrible persons, with only one goal: to make money it doesn’t matter how. They are dating also terrible persons, who are involved in abuse and the death at least of BakHa’s husband. They are selling themselves, and even if they end up together and they still are poor, that doesn’t make them good people.
    When PoongKi visited his father in the asylum there was zero empathy on him to the man who raised him and who nows suffers from Alzheimer.
    And EunJi doesn’t have any kind of dignity when she lets the daughters in law treat her that way and insult them just to have a unlimited credit card. Quite disgusting, I must say.

      Oh that scene where he visited his father was terrible. I’m sure we were supposed to feel his PAIN through his Shouting – but really he was just screaming at his ill father.

      Yeah, I didn’t get why he was so mad at his father for looking/waiting for his mom. Obviously, he is living in the past. Like dude, have some sympathy. Show some empathy.

      I think that scene supposed to show his pent up frustration that dad is still pining after mom when she left them (and presumably because they are poor). I think Oh Ji Ho is just not a good enough actor to convey that message. Hence, the shouting.

      2
      1

        You cannot act just by only opening wide eyes and shouting.
        I know he is supposed to be frustrated, but he was so disrespectful with his ancient and ill father. He didn’t want to be there, you could tell just by looking at him. It just made me think he had never respected nor loved his father. If I think about The light in your eyes and the way the relation ancient ill mother and frustrated son was dealt, it was just even harder to watch.

          Ah.. Ahn Nae Sang is just a superb actor! I am not sure what’s the deal with Poong Ki is. I don’t really care that much. lol. In the hand of a better actor, I think I will care more. I am only watching for Bak Ha, Hae Joon and Yeol Moo 💗.

    Yeah they will end up together, they already seem like a married couple. I would like them to actually wake up and see that money isn’t all that and reflect on their life. I don’t want them to start dating just because there is no one else or their plan become chaebols failed.

    3

    I think they do care about each other a lot and they definitely get jealous when the other is dating someone else. I’m hoping that soon they will realize that money isn’t everything and it is better to be in a relationship with someone they actually care about.

The big Harvard secret will be exposed this weekend. I want it to be out in the open but I don\’t want HaeRi to get ANYTHING. She\’s not a good person. It\’s not Saturday yet?!

    How did Hae Joon turn out so well (possible lie about Harvard aside)? He’s surrounded by despicable relatives.

    I really really want Hae Ri to win that chairman seat just because her grandfather refuses to recognize her potential and wants to give the seat to the “son”. Ughh but Hae Ri is so condescending that at the same time I don’t want that for her! Honestly she doesn’t work that hard and is just mean!I know Hae Joon reaally does deserve it. Do you get that? In the end I want a situation where either Hae Ri is in the power position with Hae Joon having to listen to her orders or where both have equal power and contribute equally to the company but Hae Ri’s personality reaally is the worst! I don’t want HJ to get the seat because of his grand father’s blatant favoritsm towards him but he also reaally works hard and is talented and so he should get it! Ughh I’m confused but this is what I want🤷‍♀️

      I really don’t get why these chaebol kids can’t just work together to build an even bigger powerful company instead of fighting each other and divvy up the wealth. The company is big enough for the two of them. But then again, what do I know about the world of chaebol.

          True. It comes from the root. Sadly…

          But I guess in this show they are trying to show karma since gramp built his empire on stolen money, it seems.

        I might just be weird (or indulgent), but I find Hae-ri tolerable. I don’t know why Woo-jae likes her and he could do way better, but, as far as chaebols go, she’s not that bad. She doesn’t hold a candle to Hae-jun though (honestly, I only watch this show for Bak-ha and Hae-jun).

        1
        1

          Well, she is not malicious. I give her that. And she does sincerely love Woo Jae. But she is a spolied brat and condescending. And when I don’t care for her, I just want her scenes cut out to make time for more Bak Ha, Hae Joon and Yeol Moo.

          1

            She has been malicious to Bak Ha though. Trying to get her fired is malicious to me. Otherwise she is just really annoying.

Chen dating secretly and getting her pregnant is the stuff of fan-fiction. Tumblr is full of jokes! 😂 More idols need to date openly then maybe k-fans would get over themselves.

13

    It seems surprisingly common though? At least the dating in secret stuff. A lot of Korean celebrities date in complete secrecy, then announce their relationship right before or after the wedding. The pregnancy stuff is a bit of a shock though (in a good way).

    Tbh, my guess is that quite a few of the EXO members are dating secretly. They have dated celebrities in the past (Kai as well as Baekhyun, although it didn’t turn out well for Baekhyun…), and they have pretty routinely said things that seemingly suggest a willingness to date and have long-term relationships. If I had to guess, I would say Kyungsoo and Baekhyun are probably dating secretly as well, as well as maybe Kai or Suho.

      Oh plenty of idols are dating in secret. I said openly. In light of the recent feminist movement and #metoo going on in Korea you would think that k-fans would stop treating idols like property. All idols need to date openly then k-fans would have no choice but to accept it.

    Son Tae Young & Kwon Sang Woo meeting, dating, and getting pregnant within half a year and putting out a wedding announcement is a thing of fan fictionโ€ฆ

    Me thinks Jong Dae had been dating for a while and only recently decided on marriage plans and was going to make a wedding announcement and just spring it on everyoneโ€” a la Song-Song Couple styleโ€” but then found out in the process of planning everything that his now-fiancรฉe is pregnant 🤔🤔

    2

      I wouldn’t be surprised if Jong-dae had been dating for a long time. If his public persona is at all probative of his personality, he seems like the type of person who would eschew serial dating, hookups, or anything of that sort (I don’t mean to judge; people can make there own decisions about how to live, and, as long as they don’t hurt others, I don’t think one way of living is objectively superior to another).

        Apparently, there was an unwritten understanding between the members and from the hardcore EXO-Ls (not the sasaengs nor necessarily just the SK fans, Iโ€™m just speaking of the fans who really understood the members) that he had been in a long term relationship and everyone in the know was okay with it ☺️☺️☺️ If that is true, then Iโ€™m happy that Chen has that to fall on

    Yeah I think it will be after the husband plot is revealed or after Haejun starts dating Bakha – his mother will oppose because he went to Harvaaard and all that. I can’t wait for the reveal ๐Ÿ™‚

I had to get a new phone because I left my carrier I’ve been with since ’98 ( I still feel weird even though this is a better network). I upgraded from the Galaxy S 10+ to the Note 10+ (this thing feels like I’m holding a 65″ 4K tv in my hand) so I had to download new wallpapers from the Galaxy Theme Store. Someone made little “anime” versions of a few scenes from Goblin and a few from One Spring Night. There are two scenes I couldn’t quite place. Can anyone *audience yells* NAME THAT DRAMA?!!

Dongbaek won\’t let JongRyeol tell anyone he is Pil Gu\’s dad and wants him to stay away from him but doesn\’t bat an eyelash when Yong Shik claims him as his son? This is what all the Beanies have been proclaiming is a great female lead and why YS is so awesome? I call bullshit.

First and completely off-topic, it took DB WAY too long to defend her son. You can talk about me all you want but mess with my kid and I will reign down FIRE on yo ass!!!

Second, JR needs to step up and claim his son. Pil Gu knows now so either step up and be a father or go away and leave them alone.

Third, DB was orphaned so shouldn\’t she want her son to have both parents? Regardless of her reasons for keeping them apart in the beginning, they both know now so there is more harm in keeping them apart.

It\’s unfair to think that because JR isn\’t the man for DB he wouldn\’t be a good dad to PG. Most of this is DB fault but JR is not blameless. Stop trying to get back with DB and just worry about your son.

    I agree so much, she is such a mess but nobody gets her. In a way she is very well written, it’s just weird that people only think what the show tells them to think about her. The fact JR acts like a puppet because the writer wants people to ship the OTP is so silly. I find his behavior so strange that I haven’t even caught up, don’t know if I should.

      I wrote that after episode 11 but 12 really made me mad. YS doesn’t want DB to be around JR ever which is impossible because they have a kid together. DB doesn’t want JR to buy PG toys or give him money but it wouldn’t be so excessive if she hadn’t kept PG away from him. YS’s mom wants DB to stay away from YS but wants PG to still come by. You just yelled at his mom that you don’t like her anymore (because your son likes a single mom and that comes with baggage) , why would her son still come by to see you? JR is somehow supposed to be an asshole for not wanting another man to raise the son he just found. PG hates his dad because he’s jealous of how JR treated his daughter (because DB hasn’t told anyone the truth).

      The only two characters that make sense are JR and PG. I think I’ll wait until Joker is revealed and watch that episode because the rest is just too stupid for me.
