Beanie level: Errand boy

Wishing everyone a wonderful and happy Chinese New Years.🧧

You are all wonderful and such beautiful people and I’m so glad I’ve found DB. A safe place where we can spazz, squeal, discuss and come together over dramas and life. I also want to especially mention all the great girls on the DB discord chat. You girls are all a blast! ❤ Here is to a great 2020!

    Despite his claim that he only knows how to kill, Uncle Wuzhu is a pure soul. I love Fan Xian’s soft gaze towards him whenever he asked for advice and Uncle Wuzhu expectedly made his complicated problems sounded so simple.

    Are you recommending Joy of Life? Is it a good watch?!

      I highly recommend it! I finished it yesterday after binge watching ep 20-46 in 3 days lol. Just beware that it’s set-up to be 3 seasons long so you are only getting 1/3 of the drama with this first season. But it’s still excellent.

      I just found out today it’s the 2nd top rated drama on MyDramaList (with The Untamed as #1) 😆

Wang Yibo also did a game ad where he, like always, looks so beautiful 😍 I love his look. It’s a mix of etherial period garb with modern esthetics.

    I’m having a hard time deciphering what he’s holding in the first pic. Is it a) a calligraphy pen, b) a flying dagger c) a smoking pipe or d) a small handheld telescope?

Last night I watched the movie The Dude In Me and was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this movie. I\’ve been in a bit of a slump with dramas, jumping from one drama to the next, not finding anything that really excites me and makes me want to stick around to the end. So I settled for a movie hoping for some fleeting entertainment, and The Dude in Me fit that perfectly. Definitely not a perfect movie but it was funny, heartfelt and had some very well-done action scenes. My only complaint is that Park Sung-Woong wasn\’t in it more, but it\’s a small complaint as Jin Young did a surprisingly good job carrying most of the movie.

    I did enjoy seeing PSW playing the meek teenager. That was funny!

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 😆

    These are really great posters/shots. With a character looking like him in the game, I’d be too distracted to play properly and will lose all the time!!!

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 😅

      Ya I’ve seen 3 different names. Melo is My Nature, Be Melodramatic and Melo Me haha.

      It is cute and I am liking it despite its flaws. But I am ready for them to finally get together. Their misunderstandings and not being aware of the others feelings has been going on a bit too long.

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?

          Although 5th row middle pic, I think it’s in the lecture hall, there should have been some other students behind him at that time when he sent that paper man to LZ. So I hesitate to say it’s that scene for sure. Hah! Excuses to re-watch to assuage my curiosity!!!

            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.

          @alasecond I don’t know about the 6th row middle pic. If I happen to notice it, I’ll let you know!!!

          I was talking about the 5th pic because I was the one curious about how come I didn’t see the other students behind WY at the Study Hall, and that made me think I was wrong about where it was. Camera changed angle.

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.

    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. 😐

      When I play the piano and sing my cats jump up on the piano bench and yell at me to stop. Or else they’re singing along 😼

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 ❤️
