Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

I just watched the film MASQUERADE. It’s so good! And exactly the story I had hoped for in THE CROWNED CLOWN.
(On the flip side now I think the drama wasted a great opportunity to flesh it out ☹️)

    Right! But the thing I appreciated about the drama is that they introduced characters Ha Seon cared for (family) before he entered the palace and had more cute and hilarious interactions with Eunuch Jo. Upon watching the movie, I realized just how exaggerated the king’s (Jin Goo’s) Cray Cray-ness was portrayed. I’m glad the movie version of the king still had his sanity left.

      It was nice to see Eunuch Jo played by the same actor too 😄
      Agreed. The movie didn’t show the king losing his marbles, while the drama emphasised the portrayal of a drug addict… the movie had the more reasonable ending, but the drama certainly had the shock plot twist factor. 🤷🏻‍♀️

“why can’t people clap in time in dramas?” Truth. 😖
Watch from minute 9:45 to know what this scene REALLY sounded like. 🤣🤣🤣

A very common story.

Toki hated weekend dramas. Her few attempts had been painful.

But beanies kept mentioning Ojakgyo Brothers, favourably too. She decided to give it a try for Joo Won.

.
.
5 days and 32 episodes later:
“I promise. This is the last episode for tonight”.

But show kept calling her back to this story of ducklings and families, and love and home.

(Random note: doesn’t Joo Won remind you of Mr. Darcy here?)

After several nights of binge-watching the effects are now quite visible. But maybe… just one more episode?

Joo Won is the cutest chipmunk ever. 😍😍 I’m at episode 15 and can’t seem to stop. Help!!!!

    They are the first OTP that start my ship adventure in dramaland. Before, I never want to ship everyone in K-drama, but their chemistry so real. I watched it after falling for SLS in Kim Tak Gu. 🙂

    Ahhhh! I re-watched this few weeks ago, I did watch it few years back but dropped it for unknown reason. I also didn’t understand the hype about him but my god, during the re-watch my heart felt something for him and now I know why people like him😂 And I really love UEE!😍

Here’s one of my favourite drama specials. It saved me from the Slump several times.
Son Ho Jun is hilarious here (when isn’t he?) and Jo Boa is equally likable.

I finished REACH OF SINCERITY Ep. 6 and my cheeks hurt from being stretched into a smile so long.
Trope “Stuck in an Elevator”: Check. ✔️
The second time was even funnier.😂

After Love, February’s profound posts and contemplative writings, it’s back to fangirling over dramas and kpop. I quite like this new song by SF9. YouTube comments tell me one of the guys was in Sky Castle?

    Yes! He’s the guy on the thumbnail pic. Uri WooJoo 😭😭 it’s so cool how all SKY Castle kids went and promoted his group’s new song on their social media.

Well, that was an unexpected plot twist at the end of ep. 12… but I’m starting to think some characters are too stupid to survive this story.

From Grim Reaper and me, to The Crowned Clown

P.S.:Here’s Dory’s wisdom for you. Add song and dance for full effect.

I’ve finally read through 3 days worth of Love, February posts! I used to dabble at writing poetry, so here are some haikus to say thank you.

Haiku 1
I can’t find the words
to talk about love, or how
much I love these posts.

Haiku 2
It’s the walk that counts.
Lives and loves come and go like
footprints in the sand.

Haiku 3
Loves present and past.
Shared pains and joys of life turn
strangers into friends.

Haiku 4
I dreamt in sepia
of hands outstretched towards the sun.
We were all the same.

A chance encounter.
A second glance.
Wait. It’s a palindrome!
Love, Fate February 😀

Here’s the reason I can’t talk about love.

I’ve seen it up close in the way she listened patiently to my ramblings. I’ve felt it in her soft hands, in her unique and warm embrace. I’ve heard it in her musical voice, singing to me and laughing over the dramas we both watched. I’ve tasted it in the melting sweetness of her apple pie.
I’ve read it in the simple words she left me, in a few handwritten letters, and in a notebook of recipes.
This world and these loves will fade away, but don’t be sad, because our real home is heaven. She used to say. So, that’s where I’m at, trying to get used to being without her. Next time we bump into each other, beanies, let’s talk about the colour of fruit and silly drama clichés. It’s too hard for me to talk about love.

See you around. Love, February.

I just finished MY STRANGE HERO (1st bean of the year hurrah!)
If you’d like to stuff yourself with Yoo Seung Ho smiles and see him shed only a few tears, this is the drama for you.

I am overwhelmed by all the “Love, February” posts. All I can do is turn to music. Here you go:
Day6 singing about love lost and refusing to be forgotten. One of my faves (why are my faves so sad?)

      Honestly, my brain is completely frozen in what to think. That took some guts from the writer to choose that ending. I’m only anxiously excited to see how all this will end. O.O

        Same. I can’t even think. But now I’m not expecting a happy ending. If Yi Heon is really dead, the deed will come back to haunt the Clown and especially the Secretary (who honestly now terrifies me).

          Same! A happy ending for the nation, I believe so. But for our main characters… I don’t see it anymore. 😭😭😭
