Beanie level: Noble idiot

Time portals are so irreverent this year. Hyun Jae (The Best Hit) took a sled down the stairs during a typhoon, and now Bong Pil (Manhole) runs/flails/falls into the sewer. *chuckles*

    Oh I forgot. And Boong Boong the cantankerous costume van decides to take a spoiled actress to Goryeo (My Only Love Song). Have I missed any unconventional ways of time-travelling? Hae Soo falling into a pond during an eclipse is positively poetic compared to these.

Waiting waiting patiently for School 2017 episode 8 subs.
Scratch the patiently. I don’t even care if they eat at Subway.

I’m devastated that I won’t see Dabong again after this week. Fortunately I have Mori riding a motorcycle, looking all cool.

I’ve changed my mind. I’d be a damsel in distress any time if Hyun Jae would wait with an umbrella for me. *throws kdrama principles out the window*

    Haven’t watched it and not planning to, but man they are really taking every romcom cliche and playing them 100% straight aren’t they? *sigh* I would be less bothered by HJ/WS if all of their romantic scenes together weren’t hopelessly cliche and humorless.

      Hehe, maybe skip todays episode then, which were rom-com heaven for HJ/WS shippers. I guess I am happily relishing at all the familiar cliches, especially when they get subverted by the fact that we are supposed to think HJ is JH’s dad. I am hoping for a twist on the Vader reveal soon, like I AM YOUR FATHER BUT I HAVE NO IDEA HOW! 🙈

        Unless the show stops focusing on the romance and starts being as funny as the first half was again I probably won’t be watching anymore. I’m just going to follow the recaps for now. It’s not like I really have a problem with romcoms, it’s just this drama was promoted more as a sitcom and the first half of the show was like that and I LOVED it, so I’m just really disappointed to see it change course to something more conventional, especially when I feel that the lovelines are not particularly well-developed here to begin with. There are many dramas out there that do cliche romcom better than this drama that I’d rather watch if I was in the mood for that kind of thing.

          I think you better give up on this show. I was also expected a sitcom,but the moment they ruined this drama with some crush by Ji Hoon, and that boy is getting emotionally with his crush, I knew this is going to follow the standard route of love triangle. They should have never created a plot of Ji Hoon has a crush on his best friend from the beginning, they should have make everyone are enjoying their friendship more. Or they should have make Ji Hoon moved on after his confession. As a result, this drama made Hyun Jae to like her as well, to make things more complicated.

Great, I’m a Noble Idiot. I’m ok as long as Hyun-Jae doesn’t become one next week. That sad smile nearly killed me.

    I’m still not sure what this expression was??? Was it a sad smile??? I’m not for HJ and WS but I don’t want him sad about not getting WS either??? Wasn’t the jjajangmyun just to be nice???

    Sorry this came off as a rant, I don’t want HJ to be a noble idiot either, I hope the show doesn’t go there haha

      I think it was sad smile…but his only display of romantic attraction to Woo-Sung was driving fast so jjajangmyun wouldn’t get spoiled. It isn’t like he searched for that particular restaurant or told her something nice without ulterior motives….
      At the moment, the only believable love line in Hyun Jae’s life is Hyun Jae/call phone

    Why do I feel that, that smile is from a proud dad to his son that finally confesses his love to the girl he’s been in love with for a very long time.

      I felt the same way too.

      Actually I saw both, which made it so poignant: proud of his son, yet sad because he can’t get closer to WS now (and I’m not sure he has romantic feelings – yet).

    He’s gorgeous in this scene <3
    I do get a sad vibe from his look though. I had never detected any romantic tendency toward WS on his part up until last week's episode, but his buying that specific dish for her and this scene change what I thought. I think this week will provide a clearer answer as to HJ's feelings.

RIP Hyun-Jae’s 93 hair, and the snake belt. *sob*

    I loved the braids so much! Guess I’ll do that one to reminisce about it.

    That braid is a separate character in itself and I’m sad to see it disappeared. Though I have to say that Yoon Shi-yoon also looks really good with his hair down.

When I think back the 90s had some uplifting messages for us, which I miss in today\’s pop music. Maybe that\’s why I like this song so much: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHnX3uXKQI8

I’ve been enjoying the catnip posts. This is the place for me to confess mine: when the OTP works as a team. It’s rare. It defeats maidens in distress and noble idiocy tropes. It made me love Healer.

    Yes! I’d take OTP teaming up over noble idiocy and/or distressed damsels any day! Then again, who wouldn’t?

    Oh yes! I think I’ve never realised it before. But yes, anytime. Even better when they have a cool plan and some spy gear. 🙂

      Yeah! One of the reasons why I loved King 2 Hearts! Plus a strong female lead!

        Huh! Then I should maybe pick it up again! I watched it ages ago when I was at the beginning of my drama journey but dropped it.

          Yeah, for sure! I mean, it’s not a perfect drama, but kind of refreshing in that the couple gets together before the end of the drama, and then get to spend the rest of the drama working together to fight the baddies. 🙂

    YESSSS. This is mine too! My ultimate one and I love when it’s accompanied by the couple, more or less, falling in love at the same pace.

Today I created my account because I was tired of seeing my comments in pale gray. Turns out the drama that got me out of lurking was DOTS lol. I so deserve Candy status. *moves into a rooftop house*
