Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching
by DB Staff
So, what are we all watching this week?
What kept you reaching for more (or agonizing when there was no more), and what made you want to throw your remote through the screen? Time to weigh in…

Twenty Five Twenty One: Well, I decided to catch up in this drama after all, because I realized hearing spoilers about its conclusion without watching would be worse than going through whatever we’re about to go through as the drama concludes this weekend. Yep, I’m not ready. And I’m saving all my feelings until I know where it lands (but there will be feelings).
Business Proposal: I loved this week in the drama, and was so happy to see the hijinks take over again as the plot takes yet another turn and gives us new things to giggle over. Like hiding from Hari’s parents under their very noses. The highlight of the story for me at this point is how our couples are settling into their relationships, and are clearly going to be fixtures in each other’s lives — you know, after all the disapproving family members get over themselves and they can all get married like the drama gods intended!

Twenty Five Twenty One: For once I’m not fully caught up on this drama. I may have accidentally-on-purpose read some spoilers for Episode 14, and now I can’t bring myself to watch it until I can binge it along with the finale. Ahhh! I’m still hopeful that somehow our leading couple will be married and happy in the future, but the show is definitely making me lose confidence. Funnily enough, I can’t help but remember how bummed I was that Our Beloved Summer didn’t give us a more true-to-life story about a couple moving on from their first love, and now that Twenty Five Twenty One appears to be giving us exactly what I said I wanted, I’m unhappy again. Why am I so fickle?!
Mr. Queen: Yet another rewatch for me and a first-time viewing for my friend. Only two episodes in and she’s already extremely impressed with Shin Hye-sun’s ability to embody the masculine mannerisms of a modern man in a Joseon woman’s body. So far, this drama has a fairly high rewatch value for me, and certain scenes still make me laugh. That may change with the later episodes, though, when the plot gets a bit heavier on the palace politics.

Business Proposal: Yay, more screen time for Ha-min! He’s so adorableeee. I can’t believe he went from squinty and suspicious to calling Tae-moo “brother-in-law” all in the span of five minutes, haha. (The power of Tae-moo’s credit card strikes again!) This week was full of hilarity and cuteness — Sung-hoon hiding behind Tae-moo (and vice versa)! The four friends suddenly having to cook for a whole group of hungry hikers! The video of a drunk and whiny Sung-hoon! I really like the development in the love lines, with Sung-hoon and Young-seo opening up to each other more, and Tae-moo and Hari all fond and smitten. Hari was so thoughtful in her efforts to distract Tae-moo from the rain on their date, and it made Tae-moo’s impulsive kiss even more tender. Also, the meta lines about being an idol were really sweet, since both siblings are played by idols. (With all the struggles he’s been through, I’m glad Byung-chan got to hear that affirmation, along with a side of head pats.) This show is really hitting all the right spots, and I’m not ready for it to end!
