Beanie level: Noble idiot

Given the newly exposed David-grandpa collaboration, I am starting to think that David has switched out the kill switch and replaced it with a dummy. After all, he’s supposed to β€˜protect’ the product

I’d never have thought that there will be a day when I’d be begging for Truck of Doom to make his appearance.

Apparently it’s safe to have loooong staring contest while Disaster Mode, regardless when you are in the building that caught fire where every seconds counts.

Mom needs to get her priorities straight when coding the logic for Nam Shin III

    yoi spoke for me.
    i had same thought while looking at that “who blinks eyes first” kind of thing… and i was like wait you hav to rescue her first then stare at her face as much as you want but leave now… plzzzz….

      I think that staring scene ruined the emotional effect of the whole fire scenes. I was laughing when the camera starts to slow-mo and circle the actors. Definitely killed the mood.

      You’d think she would’ve died of smoke inhalation for the time spent staring at him. But I guess, what’s a better way to die than die staring at SKJ.

        absolutely agree. i hate when any such tragic scenes get this kind of treatment which is far from reality.
        even though he is a robot and not prone to smoke but surely he can’t be saved from being burnt by that huge fire. He could have burnt by the time he reached out of the premises with her after so much time wasted. that was my biggest concern.
        and same for her.. she could hv died of smoke and fire but nah these over the top slo mo scenes spoiled the impact there.

I also almost hate Mom for sending Nam Shin III away. That scene was so sad, when it implicitly shows us that in the end, no matter how hard Nam Shin III tries to be a good son, he will never be the real son. Mom will always choose the real son.

SKJ’s facial expression when mom told Nam Shin III to go to Seoul told the whole story in just one look. I have faith in this drama based on that one look alone. Drama, don’t you dare mess up!

Can’t they make a drama about the Czech Republic house in Are You Human Too ? I am willing to just stare at that house for 50 episodes.

    that’s one beautiful house inside and serene at outside. and when secretary (LJH) pulled Robot by wrist it was damn gorgeous behind those.

After a looong while, I finally have free day at work. I am now lost, not knowing what to do. I’ve been enslaved by work for too long.

    Oh, I have thoughts.
    1. Nap
    2. Eat good food.
    3. Watch dramas
    4. Play on drama beans with us
    5. Repeat.
    I guess somewhere in there you could see real life people. its not my first choice as my real life people are SO QUESTIONABLE but, its an option.

      Agree whole hardheartedly on the real life people.

      I’m choosing option #4 right now since it’s been months since I last logged in into Dramabeans. Agile Scrum is evil.

        I believe you about agile scrum. I don’t know what it is but it sounds not pleasant. I could google it….but I find I don’t wanna. So I will say instead, WELCOME BACK, and add in a woohoo! and top it all off with a πŸ™‚

          Thank you, thank you.

          To sum up, Agile Scrum is a way for the company to supply you with one tasks after another. You complete one task, you’ll take another. Rinse, repeat. So you will always have a task to do.

I marathoned the remaining Return episodes yesterday. Never felt this excited since The Nice Guy.

Maybe this means that I should graduate from rom-coms and go back to thrillers? All rom-coms this year are rather dry after all.

I watched Return last night. It felt like villian galore.

Shin Sung Rok should be enough to scare me, my mind would imediately conjure up the image of him playing with his ring whenever he’s on screen. However all that pales in comparison when it comes to the mercurial and violent professor friend of theirs. That guy is a whole new level of villian. It makes Park Ki Woong, Shin Sung Rok and that annoying villain from Hwarang felt …tame.

I finished Revolutionary Love.

I feel cheated.

The fist few episodes was fun, all thanks to Siwon’s facial expressions. Then booooring. Last episode is fun again, and Gong Myung’s character finally is not as dull as the door knob. Love the actor, but god, his character is so boring here.

    I finished Revolutionary Love on sat night…and was so disappointed at how bland it all was too. It was a struggle to finish as it was constantly putting me to sleep lol

    There is nothing revolutionary nor romantic about this drama :/ and the female lead was horrible…

      Same sentiment here.

      I was led to this drama thinking that with 3 strong actors and actress, what could go wrong?

      What a waste of my time.

        And the way they resolved the final conflict was so lazy. The policemen was so conveniently there and everything looks silly and unrealistic.

          yeah it was so vague too…nothing happened to the horrible brother and the father brought 12 lawyers with him so it’s not clear whether he faced any consequences but it seems like he didn’t lose his wealth if he can afford 10+laywers

          it’s like this writer had no clue what kind of story she wanted to tell…the romance was like non-existent and it’s like she remembered at the very last moment that “oh yeah there should be some grand romantic gesture” but it’s not realistic for Byun Hyuk to leave his company and go on a 1 year vacation with his selfish non-girlfriend…ugh i’m so irritated

I read the news about H&M pulling back the ads of their t-shirt with the caption “The coolest monkey in the jungle”.

If only they had used Lee Seung Gi as the model, then everyone will be very happy.

…and maybe a spike in sales too.

    but why are they pulling them back? I can’t see what’s wrong with the line?

      The model was an African American boy so a lot of people got offended by it. πŸ™

        Aaah I see. I feel like we take political correctness too far sometimes, but there’s no real right answer. I’ve also heard ‘yellow monkey’ as a racial slur so perhaps even Lee Seung Gi would not be able to pull it off. Unless Son Oh Gong of course.

        1

          As this is a slur that was and is still used to disparage African Americans (oh the things said about Michelle Obama and Serena Williams for example) I’m not sure I would say this is taking political correctness too far.

            *eeks deleted by accident, types again*

            Makes sense to recall the ad then. Also, I feel compelled to clarify because I’d hate to be misunderstood on something like this, so I’ll just say:

            I don’t often hear such racial slurs because there aren’t ANY African people around me. So it’s possible I regard it too lightly. [Which makes me like a K-drama such as Man Who Dies To Live?]

            Yes, the few African people in my part of the world face massive discrimination; but the overwhelming race/discrimination narrative is couched in a different language – lower caste, tribals, religious, linguistic and/or regional groups, reservation.

            Okay done.

            I appreciate your clarification. Sometimes I forget that not all experiences/knowledge/cultural contexts are universal, and what can be discriminatory and offensive in my country may seem innocuous elsewhere. This was a good reminder. Thanks.

            The whole time I wrote the clarification, I was thinking that I wrote the earlier comment far too lightly. What can seem relatively innocucous in my country, may be for good and valid reasons, offensive elsewhere. So thanks as well. πŸ™‚

Reading webtoon during lunch hour at work is like infilicting self harm.

You had to gather all your wills not to squee outloud at that one scene between your OTP

And your cheeks are strained from trying to hide that ridiculous grin.

It hurts.

I was browsing the internet for a solution for a programming bug when I came accross one post with the solution. It said, “it needs a prosecutor”.

Puzzled, I read the sentence again. It actually said, “it needs a constructor”.

This proves that I have been too immersed in my Suspicious Partner marathon these days.

Between Viki, DramaFever, Viu (and Kocowa?), can anyone tell me which provides the most accurate translation/subtitle?

I used to go for Viki, but nowdays it seems like Viki subtitles are getting rare on Subscene.
