Beanie level: Noble idiot

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.

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

I know this has been mentioned several times by several of you before but the necklace gift by the male lead to the female lead is as common as the truck of doom these days!I wonder why?pretty though!

I finally finished watching SKY castle!
& I’m moving to SNU in 5months for a research position!
So many comments in the comments. This show kinda reminded me of my childhood, just not that intense!

6

    The story is just so well paced!
    I was not expecting tragedy to hit SKY castle so early in the show! within the first 2 episodes!
    The introspective look into the educational system and the unrealistic expectations that some people have was fascinating to look at.
    I was happy that they showed a variety of student perspectives too.
    There was the smart girl who truly believes that as long as she studies she will get #1 and thus everything that follows.
    The sister who is smart but rebels due to lack of attention and care
    The twins, who are pressured by dictator dad and feel trapped
    The kid who is just getting by because he isn’t at a critical level (end of high school) yet and the parents are also kinda less pressury
    And the smart kid who just moved in who is what a student should look like. Supportive parents and he genuinely likes what he is doing.

    It is so easy for most shows to go with 1/2 kinds of kids, but it was refreshing to see the spectrum including the genius kid who completely burnt out (Kay) and the kid who became a pawn and lead to the downfall of the family.

    Being Asian, I totally understand the stress, the importance on getting into a good univ and the emphasis on grades.
    I have had times in the past when coming 2nd in class was not an option.
    These kids are basically robbed of their childhoods by being forced into a square called studying (unless it is doing volunteer work that would help Ye Suh to get specs for college)

    The way most of the issues were tackled were wonderful!

    As I said before, the pace of the show was remarkable.
    I am so used to 16 ep shows these days that I was getting worried when I reached ep15 and the other tragedy happened and it did not look like things would be resolved. But then i discovered this is a 20 ep show and breathed a sigh of relief!
    It was great to see Woo Joo’s parents being so supportive and to see the twins’ mother finally put her foot down towards the end.

    I was scared that Ye Suh’s mom would aid the test cheating but thankfully that was averted.

    Side note: a) The OST was absolutely perfect!
    b) Nice to see a song that was featured in It’s Okay It’s Love ‘s pop playlist here too!

    RIP HyeNa. I was really growing to like her and her guts.
    I kept thinking that she must have survived some how . Maybe the coordi locked her up in a hospital wing somewhere, or there would be amnesia etc. but no!
    The show went straight for the death blow (death throw? I don’t know)
    But my heart ached for her at that moment.

Did anyone watch ‘Coffee do me a favor’? Kinda fun to watch but got rather frustrating towards the end waiting for the female lead to make up her mind.

    The amount of fat-shaming that they portrayed was painful to watch. The female lead took until almost the last episode to finally tell the male lead about the magical coffee that makes her into a thin ‘beautiful’ girl who he dates for a while

    Me! This is a show which I’ve enjoyed but would not recommend to anyone because of its issues like what you’ve said.

    So nice to see everyone mention all the staff and crew and the CG team as well! Dramas like this require a very strong CG team to make everything believable.
    Also the main game OST was great! Made you feel the suspense of the game!

Ok what is wrong with Se Ho\’s mom in My Strange Hero! She is literally the main reason he turned out like that! I mean yes what he did/does is wrong, but she is the worst!

Shows I started this weekend:
1) The Good Place! Such a funny show! I\’m already through season 1 haha a very easy watch!
2) My Strange Hero/ Revenge returns: so far so good. I just finished ep 4!

    There is a Good Place podcast from NBC that is a really great companion to the show. They go over each episode bringing in the creators from all the departments and is a fascinating look at how television production works as well as into the creative minds behind the the show.

      Egads saying exactly what I was gonna say, haha.

      Glad you’re enjoying The Good Place! It’s a great show! But don’t start the podcast until you’re done with season 2!

Oh hey! I became a Noble Idiot! Just saw that! hahaha that is a nice promotion right as I finish a new Kdrama (MoA)!

Final thoughts on MoA:
Overall it is a good show! The first half is really fast paced. The middle is a little show when the ‘drama’ kicks in but the end picks up the pace again.
The cinematography and the special effects are wonderfully done! I have no problem believing the in game effects! so seamlessly done!
Props to the actors as well to have worked with the CGI team for this!

The break out star of this show has to be our lovely Seo Jeong Hoon! Wonderful acting, made us really feel for the character!
(honorable mention to Hyeong Suk, who had to have the stoic NPC character for most of the show but the little of him we see in flashbacks was quite nuanced)

Could Hee Joo have been done a bit better? yes. Did I still enjoy it? Yes !
Emma’s NPC voice was quite well done. Half expected her to be a villian but did not expect the stabbing!

Min Joo was adorable. I wish we had more scenes with Jin Woo and her. They had such a good rapport and she was basically a little sister to him.

Oh and for once PPL made sense since they incorporated it into the game haha

Overall, I really enjoyed Memories of Alhambra. Everything that happened in-game had me hooked to the screen, wanting more. The Granada scenes were picture perfect!
Seo Jeong Hoon, you will be dearly missed! ^.^

    The cons: open ending, release of the game in spite of the glitch (even though it was reset), Marco was not fully addressed i.e. his NPC/bug was not shown to have been erased, basically several loose ends that were not tidied up. What happens to the Granada set of the game? Do the deaths ever get a proper closure/ what were the autopsy results?
    Maybe if they have an epilogue in the works, that could answer some of these questions !

      They didn’t explain anything. Besides the questions you posted above they at least could explain why JW needed to finish the quest in the first place? And where did Marco disappear? It’s driving me crazy!
