Beanie level: Errand boy

I guess Hospital Playlist is gonna leave us on a cliffhanger every week now? 😭
This week, I loved that the focus was on Seok-hyung!
As usual, I bawled my eyes out… but as always, it was a great episode and it continues to be the highlight of my Thursdays.💖💖💖

After packing up basically my whole uni life last week… I FINALLY got home today, after TWO flights were cancelled on me. I was so worried I wasn’t gonna be able to reach home 😭

There are many things I’m worried about, but during this period I want to focus on Gratefulness (for all privileges I have), Efficiency (focusing on the things I can control) and Openness (letting go of those I can’t control, accepting this situation for what it is).

I hope you are all well and safe beanies!!!

    So happy you’re home, safe and sound.
    Now you can rest and enjoy being home.
    I know tough times are coming and as long as you don’t have a solution for uni, but it will get better.

Finally just had the time to watch Hospital Playlist ep.3!!!
My reaction: 😂😂..😢😢😭😭…🤣🤣..💔💔😭😭…😍😍…😮😮

This PD-writer team just knows how to put me through a rollercoaster of emotions, always.
I’m unsurprisingly already ugly-crying in ep.3 and already sad this will only be 12 ep.

Wasn’t very productive in terms of drama-watching this week, as I was packing up to fly back home this weekend.
Actually, besides packing, I wasn’t productive in anything at all, which makes me anxious because I feel like I SHOULD have done more stuff.
I did manage to squeeze in a (hopefully temporary) goodbye dinner with roommates though.
I hope I’ll be more calm and able to settle into a routine once I get back home. 😔

So… what’s with Koreans and Erik Satie’s compositions???
Is he like the latest k-drama trend?

I just watched the premier of A Piece of Your Mind and one of his piece, “Je te veux” seems to be a central factor.
His “Gymnopedie nr.1” also has significance in When the Weather is Nice

So university has been cancelled FOR THE REST OF THE ACADEMIC YEAR. Well, physical classes at least, there are online classes and my uni is working hard to find a proper solution for online exams “wherever it’s possible.” So I basically don’t know IF i’ll take my exams, or HOW my thesis work will go on… everything is uncertain. I was literally only left with 3 exams and completing my thesis to graduate!!! Damn this covid-19.

I’m now going back home, because there’s nothing for me to do here anymore. Probably will need to come back to actually finish my thesis, but idk when that will be, hopefully in September and hopefully we’ll be able to graduate within this year??? Now i will go home, where i’ll be lockeddown with my ENTIRE family. I love them, but I know they will drive me a little crazy.

Pray for me Beanies! 😭

    I’m so sorry you have to go through this.
    I’m so worried about all the students that don’t know what will happen to their year.
    I can only imagine that Universities and schools will have to find a way so that not all of you loose the year.
    I just hope the solution arrives sooner than later.
    Sure you’ll have that solution, and you will be able to finish your thesis and graduate.
    Have confidence.
    And above all, stay home and safe.

      Thank youuuu 🥰
      I guess the only thing I can do is wait, everything is out of my control at this point.
      I’ve decided I will just keep staying busy and make sure I’m prepared for whenever they decided the exams are to take place.

    offtopic,

    did anyone in school days wished that public holiday be declared on the day of the results..
    or when you have competitive examples and you are stressed out and wish that something happens to postpone the exams..

    i never thought i would live the day to actually see the fantasies play out in real life 🙁

    Friend!

    I’m done for the year too. I left for home about a week ago, thinking I would have the time to run back at some point and pick my things up from my accommodation, but nope, we’re in lockdown now. I feel your pain! Hwaiting!

    I hope you find a solution in this confusion. It’s worse for 12th grade students here in India. We were having our board exams ( our equivalent of SAT) when they announced that exams would be suspended. Now our cities are on lockdown and the worst part is that this is going to delay college entrances. So many kids who had only one or two papers left are now stuck in a limbo

      There are so many students left hanging without clear answers.😔
      Wishing you strength as well beanfriend, we will get there at some point.
      I at least hope something good will come out of this

    Going through the same situation Yuyuu!
    We have our thesis submission this week but nobody could get any work done as we all had to travel and some needed to get quarantined. Also its just so hard to work in this situation. We are trying to get an extension.
    It’ll all be fine though! Lets all hang in there!

Nobody Knows is so well conceptualized and so beautiful and just keeps getting better every week, and I keep screaming at everyone I know to GO WATCH IT!

Huge bonus that this is ACTUALLY a story that revolves around a female character, and Kim Seo-hyung is kicking ass as Young-jin. And everyone else is hitting it out of the ball park with their characters too. The child actors are so good!!!

It’s been a while since I tuned into such a subtle but engaging thriller that is well-written (so far), steeped in pathos, but also grounded in the healing quality of human connectedness. 💖💖💖

        I started last night but could ‘t finish episode 1 since I was baking but I’m enjoying what I’ve seen so far. It wasn’t on my list because it sounded so much like Beautiful World when I read the synopsis. Watching it now, it’s different and I’m quite invested.

Will 2020 be the year of Strong Female Leads?

This year’s list is growing, and lately I’ve really been liking PMY as Mok Hae-won in When the Weather is Nice.
She’s a quiet sort of person, but never afraid to speak her mind, and stands up for herself when she is wronged.

I didn’t like people who showed up at my door after being turned down by me. Some people think it’s romantic, but I disagree. I felt they ignored my feelings and wanted to have their way. They should respect my feelings if I turn them down. They should accept it if I don’t want to accept their apology.

    Hae-won is great. I’ve been feeling recently that either I’ve seen too much of Park Min-young, or she just hasn’t been connecting to her roles lately, because I don’t feel like she’s really slipped into a role since Healer? While I still say that’s her best performance, she is killing it a Hae-won. I can tell that she thinks deeply and that she’s always a little bit angry. When she said, “I didn’t even know I was cold,” I felt that Park Min-young was really doing her justice.

      Mok Haewon is a breath of fresh air. I haven’t been connecting to any of PMY’s characters since Healer too. I liked her in Seven Day Queen but the rest were basically the same characters and same rom-coms. I’m so glad she chose this drama this time.

    I love HaeWon, she’s not the kind of strong we usually see. She’s the kind of quiet strong, but strong after all.
    These two can be a perfect couple.
    They need time.

    Jung Guem Ja in Hyena is amazing representation in the sense that she’s a grey character. Also in an episode of Hyena, the victim, abuser and lawyers were all women. That was a great episode

      I still need to start on that show! But I’m swamped with dramas, so I’ll watch it after it ends and when I have more space on my drama plate

I have so many Mon-Tue dramas! 😭
Nobody Knows, WTWIN, and the upcoming A Piece of Your Mind all air on the same days !!!
Not to mention that there’s OTHER dramas I want to get to eventually. Like binge-watching Kingdom s2 (damn you netflix) or catching up (will i ever) on other recently-finished shows.

HOW to spread it all out in a weekly schedule??? I feel like i should pull up an excel sheet 😂

Actors I would love to see in dramas I actually enjoy (to the end):

– Woo Do-hwan
– Jang Ki-yong
– Yang Se-jeong

After reading the introduction (which didn\’t make sense) of the characters in KES\’s upcoming The King: Eternal Monarch, I do have to throw my two cents in on this one.

You mean to tell me Lee Min-ho, Woo Do-hwan AND Kim Kyung-nam are all in this, but LMH is the one playing the LEAD?
In my very humble opinion, I think these other two guys have way better acting skills. I have nothing against LMH, he\’s watchable… but he doesn\’t do much for me as a performer, I think he\’s enjoyable depending on the kind of actors he\’s surrounded with, how he\’s directed and what type of script it is.

That being said, I also have many bones to pick with KES as a writer, and I swore to never watch her dramas again after Goblin… but I always give them the 4 episode test just to make sure I can judge the dramas after having tried them, so I\’m quite intrigued about this one (but probably won\’t finish it).

FUN FACT: Of all her dramas, I enjoyed DOTS most, flaws notwithstanding; but Heirs is my most hated drama of all time.

    I still don’t know how I finished Heirs… I guess I was hoping it would get better, although it never did.
    And yes, LMH is as beautiful (he really is!!!) as not the best actor ever. Maybe this one is good for him. I liked him in Faith…

    Lol. I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought it didn’t make sense. The world building is so confusing, with many characters. KGE is a cop in modern world and criminal in sageuk world. Criminal-KGE got caught and in prison she learned she had cancer and only 3 months to live.
    Me: ………why? Why does she need to die again after Goblin.

I know k-dramas have a reputation of having the wackiest of premises… but I couldn’t help but LAUGH out loud at this one. Upcoming KBS drama Born Again starring Jang Ki-yong, Lee Soo-hyuk, Jin Se-yeon:

“a reincarnation drama about a detective, the detective’s lover, and a serial killer who loved the detective’s lover (WHAT???).Their lives ended 32 years ago but their fates become entangled again when they are reincarnated into new lives”

Well, I’m obviously gonna have to check it out, it worked 😂

There’s a certain kind of pain I stay away from… and I feel like Hi Bye, Mama has loads of that in store (reason why I also didn’t watch Go Back Couple).
There’s just something extra heartbreaking about the premise.

Hopefully I’ll meet the cast in other dramas I can stick to 👋

I’m sorry, but I’m laughing like a LOON reading some of the comments about the new KES drama starring LMH. 🤣

    Absolutely ridiculous.
    I’m not used to this kind of “you’re with me or against me” specially when we are talking about an actor that you’ll never meet and all of that.
    And some talk about being mature.
    My only guess is that they’re really young and passionate about things in a very young way. If not…

I\’ve been enjoying the Music March on the fanwall lately, but I won\’t be participating as I\’m busy; so I would like not to be tagged.
But I will silently be there in the background! 😊❤

Do you think Hyun Bin continuously played jerk characters because he KNEW that it would break us if he put his sweet side on full display? 😂
Because this withdrawal is intense you guys. 😭
Still in #CLOYwithdrawal #HyunBinwithdrawal.

So I’m planning to check out Hi bye, mama once my day ends tonight.
From what I’ve heard so far, I better prepare a box of tissues!

I’m kind of drowning in dramas (which means 2020 is shaping up to be a good drama year). I still haven’t caught up on Itaewon Class (or made up my mind that I’ll stick with it) and I also want to finally start Black Dog, but there are also a lot of March dramas that I’m looking forward too! And I’m not even over CLOY yet. 😭

    Black Dog! Black Dog! Black Dog!

    And I really hope you enjoy Hi Bye, Mama! It’s the first time in forever where I’ve loved the premiere of a drama so much!

I finally checked out the premiere of Itaewon Class… and
That has got to be the 2nd most traumatic Truck of Doom ever, after the one in Circle 😭
That was a strong premiere, and stellar acting!
Curious to see if the show can keep this same energy going forward; I\’ve managed to avoid the spoilers so far.

A drama doesn’t end, unless you stop watching it. 😏

I’m still not over this scene, it hits me with the same gut-wrenching emotions every time; and I’ve rewatched it a LOT of times. 😭😭💖💖

Okay, a final round of applause for this OTP and their chemistry! 👏👏👏
Also I need these images on my wall. It should honestly be illegal to not only look that good individually BUT also so blindingly perfect together!
(Bless whoever cast them, they’re a hero)
