    I just watched it this morning, I was going to just try it on for size, but couldn’t stop till I finished. I decided to check it out
    when I heard it is the same pairing as the young version of the 17 but 30 couple.
    It wasn’t what I was expecting but I liked it

      Right! I went in thinking, oh nice, another sweet coming of age teen story.
      It is so different than what I expected and a lot darker too!

        But a bit more realistic, being a teenager can be a dark emotional mess

    I liked it a lot since it showed themes (well, sex) unusual in youth dramas.

Does anyone know if Hotel Del Luna has been picked up by any of the standard Kdrama watching websites like Viki, Kocowa or even Netflix?

Is anyone watching Perfume? I just finished Ep 1(or 1+2 half episodes). It’s interesting. I’m just hoping it doesn’t fall into the fat-shaming category but goes the empowerment route

Ok guys, random question. Is the little dog that is in Let’s Eat 1 the same in Let’s Eat 2?
Sorry if they are different! I am not very good at recognizing dogs!

    I think they’re the same. Just got a hair cut in between!

Alright Abyss ! You have my attention! Solid first episode. Good Set up. Loved loved loved the 1mil stars cameo by Seo In Guk and So Min. It raised the right #of questions. Can’t wait to see more!

Really impressed with Psychometry.The rooftop scene has an almost accurate distribution of stars in the sky including the Orion constellation. Love that as an astrophysicist!Love it dramas get tiny-

Did anyone watch Doggo Rewind with Sehun? Was that really the end? Have they planned a follow up / season 2? and oh my goodness so brutal!

    I started it but once I saw where it was headed with Sehun’s twin I stopped. I told myself that I would only finish it if they had a season 2.

Just finished watching the last episode of the The Light In Your Eyes (aka river of tears in my eyes).Such a good drama!I’ll quote Kim Hye Ja: Live your today, Love your today
enough said, go watch it

Can’t believe it has taken me this long to start : Come here and Hug me.
I’ve been in this mood since Radiant/The light in your eyes. So this drama is a perfect follow as I wait for the last 2 eps.

I also finished Top Star Yoo Baek today. Cute drama, nice comedy fun all around and an interesting look at life on a small island in the countryside! (much needed break from crying over Radiant)

Can we take a moment to appreciate Radiant? Ahhh work and other things made me take forever to finish ep10 in which I went from laughing to ugly crying in 1 ep. Can’t believe it ends this week!

    That ending in ep10 hit me hard! I was not expecting that! I literally have no clue what direction ep 9 and 10 will take and this is a first in my almost decade of drama watching. This is such an underappreciated drama! Its a melo, so you need to like that category to watch it but oh my will it take you for a ride! and so worth it!
    I almost want to compare it to 1mil stars from last year meets slice of senior life.
    Keep your tissues ready!

    *takes the whole week to appreciate Radiant*

    *seriously, I’ve had a really hard time focusing on anything else*

    It’s just. I just.

    Sigh. It leaves me without words. I’m just thankful it exists, even though it truly tears me up inside.

If Reach of Sincerity/ Touch your Heart is my awww/squeal gushing over romance drama of the week, Radiant is my hit-you-in-the-feels drama. I just bawled my eyes out on Ep 9! such a strong episode!

    This is one of those dramas that really makes you think about life objectively. Where am I in life and where is my life going. It shows the sad part of turning older and all the complications that come with it. Including the burden left on the ones left behind.
    The actress Kim Hye Ja is a gem and she deserves all the love she gets for her amazing acting chops.
    Joon Ha has been portrayed really well too! The guy with the broken dream trying to make ends meet but is still good deep inside even though he is kind of a shell of a person now. Heartbreaking to watch!

Fellow beanies, what drama items have you bought? Here are some of mine:
The pig-rabbit doll from You are beautiful
The star backpack from Heirs (I study astrophysics, so I bought it ‘for science’)

Radiant Thread: Is anyone else watching it? I’ve been dying to talk about it!
It is a very melo but nuanced show. A lot of talk about balance and consequences of life decisions etc. Kim Hye Ja is <3
