Right, so I don’t always watch high-quality dramas… but the fangirling is strong in this one.

    The only thing that would have made this scene funnier is if they had played a more ganster rap song like Lose Yourself from 8 Mile in the background

Current status: skydiving into slump land without a parachute.
– JBL: on hold (ep. 13). Not compelled to finish the angst.
– NIF2: on hold (ep. 12). Not loving the high priest shenanigans.

Plan A: I’m going to give Bottom of 9ths a try… I don’t know if I will last 16 episodes but I do get 2000s nostalgia watching this. Thanks @mihoo

Plan B: Wait for Waikiki to save me.

    I know the feeling totally in Slumpland. I am debating on staying on a Hong sisters roll and watch The Greatest Love after watching My Girlfriend is Gumiho, or start Healer. Decisions, decisions.

      It’s really bad here in slumpland. Have you finished Chief Kim?

        Yep, i have finished it 😁 I think CK was the last the drama that I got really excited. Currently on Healer bingewatching, but got stucked on ep 15-16. I still want to finish JBL tho since it has happy ending (based on the YT clips and comments) haha

    I was going there as well and then I very VERY skeptically decided to give Father is Strange a try (it’s on their KBS World TV Youtube Channel) and I. Was. Hooked. I’m on the 7the episode now and I have 40+ more to go and I’m actually NOT dreading it. I’d say give the first episode a try and see what you think. Bottom of the 9th is good as well – it’s more comfortable than edge-of-your-seat drama, but definitely good.

      I’ve read really good things about FIS. I haven’t had good luck with weekend drama, but I have this one on my list if I ever feel like it.
      I’m also enjoying Bottom of 9th – currently on episode 4.

Beanies, what’s the verdict on Return so far?
Of course, I’m getting sucked into Nirvana in Fire 2 so I might not have time for anything else… 😳

    Update: I only made it to 30 minutes. I give up. The internet wants to prolong my suffering. Time for emergency measures: Switch to youtube. I found major spoilers and some beautiful video clips. I can now sleep in peace. 😉

    Ugh!! You and me both!

    I’ve been having major internet problems for a couple of hours. I just had to reinstall Windows on the computer. As I’m writing this post, I’m kind of testing things out. Things look ok, but I’m not sure. *crossing fingers*

Following @tinak’s ‘Ode to Faith’ I’ve been listening to the OST again. It made me cry for joy the first time I heard it. It’s hard to choose because they are all epic, but this one reminds me of Ep 1

    Congratulations! WishfulToki!

    Haha I would way that we are in way too deep with the backstory of ToD. We are now convinced that he is wrongfully accused despite witnessing the crimes committed in front of our eyes time again and again 😂

    4

      His backstory is so sad. I am not saying he is innocent of any wrongdoing: he is an accomplice of crimes and must receive some punishment, but the greater punishment should go to whoever was at the wheel, whether a drunk driver, a drunk writer, or a butterfly god.

      2

        I was fairly certain Truck drives himself at times. But perhaps that’s the Butterfly God – invisible to mere mortals like me. I have seen the error of my ways, all last remaining doubts in Truck long gone.

        I’d say Truck can legitimately plead the defense of insanity. Help, is what he needs.

    no, ToD just has amnesia. he might have done it… might have not… the victim was actually alive in a suitcase the other truck drove away with. Till then, ToD is a new cellmate in our resident prison. well, occupying an entire block.

Me watching ep 7 of Just Between Lovers and thinking ‘Kang Doo stops a whole fleet of potential ToDs.’ How can I focus more on trucks than Junho? I blame @greenfields @cloggie @kimbapnoona and @redfox

    🤣😝😂 Just think that each one of them has a backstory and a growth arc to fulfill……would every ToD get his own Moon-soo to love?

    Dear writer nims,
    When does the recaps for ToD come out?

      Just Between Trucks is still in the pre-production stage. We are checking with Truck to confirm his schedule and fees. Sadly, Truck has developed this terrible habit of hitting people and running away; and we haven’t been able to open communications just yet.

      5

        Regarding the negotiation of fees, will they work for fuel? We can possibly throw on some truck wash.

        4
        1

          I think Truck would be happy with these terms. I hear he also needs a place to stay. Parking lots can get quite cold at night – and Truck has been known to have said that sometimes he’s simply driving around in an effort to keep warm when he hits people by accident. Perhaps we can reduce the fatalities if the fees includes a garage.

            😢😢😢 sobs….thinking that all ToD probably wanted is fulfilling basic needs like shelter….the Dramaverse’ misunderstanding and prejudice runs too deep….(self-reflecting)

            Such sob-inducing second-lead material. We’d totally have SLS the moment Truck turned on those sad puppy lights.

        If Truck is concerned about carrying a whole drama, maybe for his first big role he could be the SL. The main character could be a plucky truck driver who inherits her father’s Truck after his death and loves driving him. You can imagine the angst when she realises that maybe Truck was involved in the death of her boyfriend’s mother on a pedestrian crossing.

        We’re currently casting for the female lead. Any suggestions, let us know.

          HA, did you guys see episode 8? Moon Soo drove ToD to the rescue . And posed for photos together afterwards. The love triangle in Just Between Lovers might just be Moon Soo/Gang Doo/Truck.

          3
          1

            ToD is great second lead material. He didn’t even complain like Gang-doo when Moon-soo touched him allover. He is a great alternative to the knight in the shiny white armor.

    I noticed from your earlier post that you are also watching Radiant Office? Did you like ToD’s action in the opening minute? Excellent non-lethal example of ToD’s finer work.

      It was wonderful. I thought for a moment I had chanced upon The Revenge of ToD.

Eek, episode 1 and this sounds too familiar. Fellow beanies, please tell me this show has a happy ending. Otherwise I don’t know if I can watch this. 😰

    I won’t give you spoiler but if you like down to earth story with down to earth characters you will eventually like the journey. It’s the process that matters, right?

      Sure, it’s just that in my situation I prefer dramas that give me hope in this life – I can handle tears and pain, anything, as long as the drama doesn’t turn cold and heartless at the end (like BTIOFL).
      But I got through episode 1 and like the down to earth vibe. I am going to continue. 🙂

    It’s a wonderful underdog story and I just loved all the characters, especially the main trio. Totally hopeful and sweet.

    I don’t want to give a spoiler if it is happy or sad ending, because it might influencing your watching experience, so some hint -it is a satisfying and good drama. It has all what you want I think, very down to earth, with an understated romance. Some found this drama boring because they thought this is like a normal romcom, but this one is more on lowkey office drama romcom with slice ot life elements.

      “very down to earth, with an understated romance”. SOLD. 😀
      I just watched episode 2 hehe and will be a wreck trying to work tomorrow…Panda eyes are back. There goes my 2018 intention of a balanced kdrama schedule!

I’m sorry I skipped this show before because I was prejudiced against Bona’s acting (I found it boring and stiff in The Best Hit). She was actually good in Girls Generation 1979.
