Beanie level: Errand boy

I made a post about this earlier showing the BTS of this photoshoot of Xiao Zhan and how I loved his styling. Well, here is the end results (and yes, it’s for a game and yes I wish it were for a drama) 😍

The last poster looks like the silhouette of Wei Wuxian 😆

Only watched the first episode of Melo is My Nature and I am already bawling. I’ve never had a drama emotionally affect me this much after a single episode. Their friendship is so beautiful.

    Aww. Be Melo is great. This show has several names btw. But the rest episodes will be funny too while being emotionally gripping. If you ever need recommendations on dramas that emotionally affect since the first episode, I have many to give, i usually watch such stuff 😅

I had a wonderful lazy Thanksgiving holiday filled with family, food and dramas. I finished watching Extraordinary You and Tale of Nokdu over the long weekend. Both were quite enjoyable.

I think I liked Extraordinary You more than Nokdu. The set-up was very unique and love how Secret was basically a spoof on Boys over Flowers. There were some plot pacing issues, some weird writing and silly tropes (amnesia? TWICE!?) but the romance was enjoyable with Haru being an adorable puppy. Eun Dan Oh wasn\’t someone to sit back and let her life be decided for her and knew exactly what she wanted. Baek Kyung was all kinds of awful and needlessly horrible. But me and my brother loved him because he had become a meme to us. But the one who stole the show was Lee Do Hwa. He deserves to get the girl in the next comic! The most memorable lines were spoken by him and I could watch a whole drama about him. Overall it was an enjoyable watch.

I loved how Tale of Nokdu started. But what the drama started as and what it ended up as felt like 2 totally different dramas. I did like the drama overall but I wished the cross-dressing and the fun widow village antics went on longer. But kdramas sageuks are obsessed with drama and tension and can\’t seem to just do cute and fun. So by the end it had turned into a dramatic political drama with almost none of the fluff from the beginning. All the actors did a great job, especially Jang Dong Yoon who I haven\’t seen in anything before. I also really enjoyed how he portrayed Widow Kim. Loved the romance as the chemistry between Jang Dong Yoon and Kim So Hyun were off the charts. I overall enjoyed it but I went in wanting and expecting light and fluffy so was disappointed when it barely gave us a taste of that before going into full political intrigue.

I hope everyone else had a wonderful Holiday (if you are American) and a wonderful weekend ❤️ I love the community we have built here.

    The obvious ones I guess I can remember (or think I do!!!)
    Top row middle – when Lan Zhan cut the holes in the bamboo flute and gave it to WY.
    3rd row – first pic on the left – when WY plastered Xue Yang with his string talisman and was so pleased with himself … he practically asked LZ to praise him!
    3rd row – middle pic – when LZ caught him on the roof trying to sneak in with Emperor’s Smile.
    4th row – first pic from left – when 16 years later he first caught sight of LZ at Mo Xuan Yu’s home.
    4th row – third pic from left – I’m guessing at Burial Mounds as he was planting his lotus and looked up.
    6th row – third pic from left – at Wen Clan’s ‘lecture’
    7th row – first pic from left – Yes to @linda-palapala that was when LZ and WY had been on the roof together and after WY flew off roof, LZ said he would help him as he continued with his ‘demonic’ cultivation methods.
    7th row – middle pic – at Cloud Recesses library where LZ calls his name out of exasperation and WY responds by raising his hand and says: I’m present! (3x)
    7th row – third pic – Lotus pond with Shi Jie in one boat throwing lotus seeds at the other boat.

    I need to check on the 5th row middle pic – thought it was at the lecture hall in Cloud Recesses when his paper man is bothering LZ but the background looks too bare.

      It’s definitely lecture hall because that’s the right outfit. Isn’t he looking at LZ there?

            5th row middle pic – was in the Cloud Recesses study hall just after LZ removed the turtle picture that WY had stuck on to the back of the Teacher’s robes. LZ was giving him a death glare and WY was smiling impishly in return, until he noticed LZ’s expression, after which he pouted.

Cats are great. Sometimes… 🐱 A little story for a snowy day.

My work has given me the perk of working from home every Monday. Which is lovely as I can just crawl out of bed and start working in my PJs in front of the TV with a drama playing. The only problem with working from home is my cats. My cats insist on walking all over my work papers, or laying on them. Or they insist on snuggling into my arms while I am trying to work. One of my cats walked across my keyboard and deleted every email in my inbox at one time.

But the worst instance happened last week which sent me into a panic attack. I work on the website of a catalog company. At the time I was working in our companies ftp uploading images for the site. One of my sweet kitties walked across my keyboard at that moment and to my horror I noticed one of our critical folders was missing from the ftp. The folder is our swatch folder which houses every swatch image for our entire website. Being a fashion catalog we have swatches to show all the different colors available for purchase. Without the folder customers will just get a whole bunch of broken images instead. I was freaking out, worried my cat had someone managed to deleted this very critical folder. I chatted up my co-worker and boss to see if they could see the folder and if we could hit up IT to recover it. But after a few panic-filled moments my boss discovered that the folder had not been deleted but had somehow been moved to another folder. I sighed the biggest sigh of relief ever. Needless to say, my cats are now banned from being around me when I am working. I love my cats, but not while I am working.. 😆


(One of my cats snuggled into my arms while I am trying to work)

Anyone else have some fun pet stories they can share?

    Awww…

    I don’t have any funny pet stories. But sometimes, we hear our co-workers’ dogs or pets barking or meowing nearby. Or you’d hear one coworker suddenly saying “I’ll be right back. Need to bring the trash out before the bear comes”.

    I’m always paranoid that my work laptop’s camera turns on by mistake — even if I put a sticker on it to hide it.

    0

    I had the opposite problem. I’m a musician — whenever I started practicing at home, the cats would immediately get up and run to the opposite end of the house. Not great for my confidence level, but at least they left me alone. 😐

I love Xiao Zhan’s character styling here. But I have looked everywhere and can’t find what this is for. The tag says it’s for a game commercial but not sure. I wish it were for a drama 😆❤️

    The super long tag in the second row says it’s the character design of ‘Ling Wu Chung’, which is a character of a Chinese novel (then turned drama), “The Smiling, Proud Wanderer” a.k.a “笑傲江湖” (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Smiling,_Proud_Wanderer)– the most notable version of the drama (v.qq.com/detail/q/q0t4yvm2i52eoub.html) starred Wallace Huo & Joe Chen Qiao En (both from Taiwan even though it’s a mainland drama), but there is a 2019 version of the drama (v.qq.com/detail/8/8jkko7n7si6k04m.html) with a cast list I’ve never heard of before, and which XZ is not a part of 😅😅.
    So I think it’s safe to say that this IS just the bts for a commercial (based on the 笑傲江湖 novel & character) and not an actual drama shooting 🙂

    1

      Ya I had done a search and found that wiki link and the other dramas but couldn’t find any info where XZ was related to it which is why I was confused. And MDL had no info about him playing this character. Sadness that this isn’t for a drama because I love his look ❤️

      which is this scene?

      2

      Tell me, because I don’t remember where I saw it, but when he did the first (?) variety show he wasn’t the best dancer. One of the judges immediately chose him without any hesitation and the other judges asked why no hesitation at all, since he could only sing, not dance as well. She replied because his facial expressions showed his emotions so well that she knew he had great possibilities.
      This is only the gist of it – anyone remember this youtube video?? It’s probably on that guy who does the short clips of “Chinese News” whatever. Wish I had a better mind for details!

    He definitely has the most attractive features in Asia… The most beautiful thing about him is the way he carries himself, he has so much charisma indeed!! 💖

    6
    1

      i don’t find him as attractive in modern attire, barring the blue outfit and super cute look on day 2 of nanyan concert..

      his usual hairstyle does not do him justice..

      AND he totally lacks the oomph to carry out bold looks.. he is best being cute, boy next door who is beyond adorable

      and i find his character so different on stage Vs BTS..
      unlike say yibo.. who is fairly consistent.. or other cast too.. like shijiye cries and is sensitive, soft spoken types, LXC is similar..
      XZ is a drastic change (whether he is forcing himself now.. or was he overworking trying to make yibo comfortable, i wonder)

      3
      2

        I 100% agree. I find him super attractive in his various period outfits but not as much in his modern look. But when he is styled a certain way or with the ‘boy next door’ look is when I find him the most attractive. I think rather then ‘hot’ he is more handsome and cute to me. But sadly most of the photoshoots or ways he is styled is not what I think plays up his strengths.

        And I think he is just trying to be more professional when he is doing things like interviews compared to who he is with friends. Take me for example. People who I’m not comfortable with or I don’t really know I tend to be quieter, calm and reserved with. Some people say they think I am stuck-up until they get to know me (and figure out I am as far from being stuck-up as you can get). But with my family and friends I am pretty outgoing and a weirdo. I am also different at work vs with friends and family and it could just be that. He is also newer to the scene and is someone who went from being relatively unknown to being one of the top stars so I’m sure he is still getting his ‘idol’ feet under him.

        4
        2

          hmm maybe.. but i have never seen him interacting that way to other cast either (say JC .. he is a kid too).. so maybe you are right.. it is about compatibility

          Because, otherwise he is SOOO mature on stage/in interviews etc
          and in BTS, he is nothing but an elementary school kid

          2
          1

            I see XZ drastic changes as part of his charisma: mature and confidence in serious situation, and cheerful and passionate with friends… and I think his real life personality perfectly matches WWX character…

            5
            0

I made a mistake. My sister decided to finally start watching The Untamed with me. I was contemplating starting her from the very beginning or skipping her ahead to the end of episode 2 and go straight into the past. In the end I decided to start her from the beginning. But even with my explanations she ended episode 2 with a \”Well, I\’m going to bed.\” She has sadly lost almost all desire to keep watching and ended up just confused and lost. Hopefully I can convince her to keep watching and hold on. Even if I absolutely love the drama I do admit the beginning episodes (especially the first 2) are pretty rough. I know she will love the drama once it gets going, I just need convince her to keep going! I really should have just started her at the end of episode 2 😭

          Last year I remember Thai, Turkish, UAE, Indian, Pakistani guys included in it too ; but its mostly East Asian still.
          Considering that most people in other countries don’t know this list exists, & that it’s first & foremost declared on weibo/bilibili is a pretty good indicator that its mostly Chinese.
