Beanie level: Wrongly accused fugitive

It’s been a busy few days, and today I was sick all day… but Encounter brought my spirits up!
On days like this, I’m so grateful for the magic of k-dramas 💖
PS: The aesthetics and directing of this show give me LIFE!

Truly enamoured with this show.💖
It fills me with so much serenity.
PS: I was so surprised by that ending in ep.4, the level of transparency in this show is unprecedented in k-dramas.

It’s PBG Wednesday and I’ve finally had my weekly PBG-infused energy boost Part.1!
This boy’s energy could cure depression. What a time to be alive.
On the other hand, I’m really liking the slow-burn romance and their open and honest dynamic. Hope it stays so.

Jeez…I’m now listening to Cuban music, bc of PBG.
(I actually really liked it).
I think I’d buy a rock if PBG said to do it 😂

Memories of Alhambra was confusing plot-wise, but visually gorgeous.
Hyun Bin\’s character couldn\’t have been more of a jerk at the end, even if he tried… so I\’m really put off by that side of him, and can\’t really see a satisfying explanation for his behaviour.
My thoughts about PSH haven\’t changed: mediocre at the best; and I mean this in the nicest way.

    I want to like this post so much just because of the comment about PSH. I can’t, I shouldn’t, I must be fair, I’ll pretend she is a stranger for that first episode!

    But she had hardly any screen time? And like a dozen lines? I’ve never seen anything with her, so I can’t rightly judge based on the first episode. But Hyun Bin has shown a lot of range just in this first episode. And I can explain his tirade at the end—he’s got a temper, he hasn’t slept all night, his food just burned, and now he can’t find his trillion-dollar money-maker, and an awful annoyance of a fire alarm beeping on top of it all. I’ve yelled at a lot less.

    Sounds like a typical Hyun Bin character.

    I wanted to see Hyun Bin but Idk if I can sit through PSH for him. She’s a hard pass for me.

    I am surprised.. whatever i have seen her in .. she is not bad.. and given we have really really really bad actresses likes of go ara and suzy.. psh is doing fairly well.. the role didn’t need any overt emotions for now

The end of the year is really upon us (how?)…
Which means it\’s almost time for the Beanie Awards!
I\’ve managed to avoid some supposedly really disastrous dramas, but there are two I\’d like to forget:
Hwayugi and Pretty Noona
Such DISAPPOINTMENTS.

    Woah. Hwayugi happened this year? I feel like it was long,long ago..(proves how forgettable the overall effect of the drama was, despite all the initial hullabaloo it caused)

    I dropped both on ep 6, now that I think about it!

I just watched the premier of Boyfriend, and I actually really liked the episode.

I liked the quiet and reflective tone; the innocence and gentlemanly manners that give PBG’s character a distinctly boyish charm (but solid ground for heartbreak); and SHG’s subtle strength and way of carrying herself with dignity and elegance.
I just hope that the show doesn’t veer too much into chaebol machination territory and that the writing is good (I really don’t trust the writer).

    I just hope PBG smiles more than he cries. But I do love it when that boy cries. There are very few actors that can do no wrong in my book, and PBG is one of them. #easytoplease #writer,whatwriter?

      PBG can do absolutely no wrong in my book as well!
      And it’s the Entertainer writer-nim who’s on this.

        I was being a bit sarcastic with the writer comment, meaning I couldn’t care less with who the writer is, like, “What? There’s a writer for this drama? I’ve been too busy drowning in Bogums smiles to notice.”

So what\’s the verdict on Sky Castle?

WOW!
Hundred Million Stars from the Sky: You were the kind of k-drama I needed all my life.
Thank you for delivering until your last breath.

PS: I forgive you for your missteps, because you made up for it.

#100MS…
My reaction about ep.15 is in the comments, but here\’s a few main things I want the finale to address:
– Jin-kang knowing the true depth of MY\’s past horrific deeds. Girl, he\’s not JUST apathetic and stubborn, but he\’s been (is) a sociopathic mastermind too
– The fact that MY never really felt any remorse towards his actions or was ever held accountable (yet). IMO, his attempt at redemption was never the result of his own moral shift, but his desire to please Jin-kang.

    On ep.15:
    I think MY hadn’t planned to kill JSR and just winged it because he was angry, and he figured things couldn’t possibly get worse. Also if Jin-kang sees that he killed a person, she’ll finally believe he’s a bad person and move on. From then on, I think he probably thought of killing himself.
    This leads me to think that the finale can go either of two ways:
    (1) MY does turn himself in (and ACTUALLY pays for part or all of his crimes)
    (2) He kills himself.

      I think the show will play it safe on all parts.
      – It’s a fauxcest and they’re not related.
      – MY turns himself in and goes to jail
      – JK either waits for him and they get back together or he just becomes a “good” person.

      I’d rather they not be siblings but it still ends tragically, or the Koreans really blow me away and go through with the incest.

        But but but… that’s so boring 😂. I’m gonna have to downgrade this drama if he turns himself in.

        If they’re going to die, it’s better for f****d up reason like incest. I’ll be very disappointed if they playing it safe.

        Boorrrringggggg. I hope it ends tragically. If he turns himself in & we get a time skip I will be very disappointed. Why even bother tackling this remake if they were going to turn it into a fluffy cotton candy

    One part of me wants a happy ending and another wants a sad ending given the feel of the overall drama! Ugh I can’t decide!!

Hello Beanies, and special greetings to 100MS Beanies.
Are we ready to have our hearts shredded by 100MS today?
No? Thought so.
In the meantime, I\’ll be avoiding the fanwall and stocking up on tissues

I felt like deleting this screenshot without posting it would be a crime, so here you go.
TBI finale is today and tbh, I would have never watched it, were it not for LMK.
So, may we get many more excellent LMK dramas in the future.

    Congratulations for staying with this mess for 16 episodes. You’re more loyal than me. Serious props to you.

    I’ll be waiting impatiently for the next project.

      I was thinking the same thing @Mindy – watched one episode last week due to RL – but the comments and recap made me think I didn’t need to go back to it.
      **Apparently, I’m quite the fairweather fan**

      Instead of loyalty, it’s more like it came at the right time… when I needed a sort of pick me up drama that won’t make me think and LMK just happened to be in it. Both him and SHJ are a little wasted in this, it’s kinda sad. They literally hard-carried this show.

    I tried to really like BI but I gave up after episode 6. Even though LMK looks insanely good in it.

HMS ep.14 has left me SHELL-SHOCKED (and in denial), to say the least…

But on the bright side, I can never get over how great the hugs are and I’m not even the hugging type.💕
(Also, lets give it up for Ziggy in that turtleneck!👏 I swear I now have a thing for men in black turtlenecks since BTLIOF).
PS: Now I really need a hug too 😸

    I haven’t watched, but they went there, huh?

      Yeah, seems like it…
      I really don’t mind this ending tragically, but not as siblings.
      That’s just too heartbreaking. They’re sooo good at being in love

    I literally like every post that mentions BTLIOF you’re welcome

    Actually I bet you already knew that and just said it to fish for likes. Because obviously everything is about me.

Yasss, 100MS Beanies…this is FINALLY out!!! I was dying.
Now I gotta wait forever for it to be on spotify too.

So, admittedly I want 100MS to have a \”happy ending\” (what even is that in the context of this show?)…
But on the other hand, some masochistic and evil part of me wants it to end tragically.
I\’ve seen some Beanie scenarios of said tragic end in the recaps, and I was wickedly amused.

I\’d really love for a K-drama to make such a bold move and leave us all hanging. Not in bad taste like we\’ve seen countless times, but by really staying true to the tone the show set for itself.

    If they’re daring to go all the way I think I might need few therapy sessions after the last episode 😱

One minute he’s a fluffy lil ball, then he turns into this dark and sizzling hot avenger (rawr!).
LMK’s alter-ego ahem, dark side should always make an appearance in rom-coms!
