Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

There should be a BTS of the ep9 kiss, but this will suffice. No subs but apparently the kisses at Sunset Land were adlibbed!!

      During that scene the director and actors decide to the edge of the bench and kiss. They agree to give pecks back and forth once and theyre given free range, and it looks like they adlib the rest and Nana adlibs all her lines!! Cuteeeee ❤️

    I actually liked this kiss scene much better than the ep 9 one bc this felt more realistic and it was also just adorable!

    I cried so much at the end of Ep 14 with Jang Nara that I hope Ep 15 will have some turnaround development – as opposed to what the preview seems to suggest.

      That ending scene crushed me so much. Jang Nara’s beautiful tears are so powerful. I’m really hoping it’s a fake out like the preview for ep 14 was 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

I’m glad they touched on the topic of adoption even if it were for a short time. If they choose to go through with adoption later on, at least we will know it will be a choice and not an alternative.

    This show caught me in all kinds of moods and feelings. As a woman who once struggled with the difficulty of having children because my then-husband was unable to conceive. At that time adoption was really the only option for us.
    And for me when my son was placed in my arms it was a TOTAL GIFT!!! So I have to take issue with that statement.
    But everything else was spot on. period.

    Also glad that adoption was mentioned – as it has been the common question among the viewers. And I’m glad that Ha Ri actually considered it too, even when she did so off-screen. 😅

Hari speaking truth we often forget. Loved that they show different people and showcase all the variety of hardships people face.

    I love how these last two episodes (Ep 11 and 12) are littered with contemplative lines like this as HaRi sorts through options and changes -what means to an end or is that the only end?

    Great drama watching!

    And I seriously think a miracle is on the way with all the loops, switch and turn to make that get-together happen.

Jang Nara is killing it! Hari is so bold and so strong!! She’s not afraid to show her feelings and tell it like it is. Now you better do the same YiSang!!

Nobody Knows – A review without spoilers

It’s rare to find a drama that knows how to pace itself and have a satisfactory ending. This was a crime drama where good and evil was clear yet there was a twist in almost every episode. The general theme of nature versus nurture is prevalent in many dramas but this was one that didn’t explicitly state it and instead showed it in the best way possible. Also, I love how there was a strong focus on the relationships of Cha YoungJin: with the younger Go EunHo as pictured below, her past friend SooJung, her mentor HwangInBum, and her faithful coworkers.
Lastly, Go EunHo… you have my whole heart. I realize you are an unrealistically precious character but you truly are the puppy of 2020 for me.
Thank you Writer Kim EunHyang and Director Lee JungHeum!!! I will look forward to your future works!!

I thought I knew you
I mean I knew you since I can remember
But time passed
We grew up
I saw you always there but I chose to ignore you
I chased after loves that were never returned
So I chased after a career but something still felt empty
When I finally noticed you, I realized
You were there waiting all the time
Did I know you? Did I like you?
The answer to both questions was no
Why?
Because I thought you didn’t deserve it
You had a smile on your face but you always hid your emotions
You were nice to everyone but yourself
You burdened yourself and was okay not being noticed
Why were you the way you were?
I wanted to know
It’ll take some time
But I want to get to know you, like you, maybe love you
Please stay patient with me like you always have

A letter to myself

Love,
February

I didn’t realize how much I liked Coffee Friends until I straight up put citron tea honey in milk to pretend like I was drinking the tangerine milk in Coffee Friends.

Verdict: not half bad but I still want to try/make the tangerine milk.

Fun fact: the name for tangerine milk (우유에 빠진 귤) in Coffee Friends can be literally translated into tangerine dunked in milk OR the tangerine that fell in love with milk.

A comparison of reality vs Coffee Friends for you below

      🙂 clearly i am the only one getting irritated with him and worse i hate myself for feeling that way because he is a nice kid

        He was irritating at first but the self talk really seems to help him so he got cuter as the episodes passed. One thing that bugs me is his “are you done now” after hearing customer’s orders. It’s weirdly not rude but can be taken as rude

          oh.. its not his self talking that irks me.. just his overall demeanour.. it is very underconfident and confused…

          like i fear if i ask him to get a pen from the drawer, he will just get lost in 20X20 room

    We drink it hot and without milk. We have been known to add whiskey and call it ‘medicine’

      I usually drink it with hot water too! It was my first time trying it with milk 😊 I’ve never heard of taking it with whiskey before though. Does it work? Lol

    Someone should actually make this tangerine syrup and market it in Korea. I bet it would sell like hotcakes! They can donate the proceeds.

It’s not often that writers and directors leave a long message after a drama ends so I decided to translate it for anyone who hasn’t watched this drama. Despite being a scary drama these comments spoke to me (except the last sentence about the peace part) and made me think. A lot of the times we are so quick to put blame on others for the problems in this world but taking initiative and putting some of the weight on ourselves is not a bad thing either.

We sincerely thank all of you who have viewed this drama despite watching such a dark story and spending sleepless nights. -Writers Kwon Sora and Suh Jaewon

Thank you to all who have watched and loved Sohn: The Guest. Sohn: The Guest tried to look at society’s problems in a different perspective. The thought that perhaps all bad things start within people’s hearts is the perspective we tried to portray.

Like the old saying “People are the scariest” we thought, maybe we ourselves are the problem. Like you viewers called YoonHwaPyung Yoon Peace (t/n HwaPyung in Korean is another word for Peace), we made this drama hoping to bring peace into your hearts (t/n wait what??? After scaring us every episode??) Again we thank you for watching our drama. -Director Kim HongSun

        Not at all. And it’s so kind of you.
        There is a scene in My Ahjussi where IU’s character is in hospital and they are talking about her listening to Park Dong Hoon the whole time.

        She says “I liked all the sounds you made, mister.”

        And I’d love to know her dialogue in Korean.

I’ve decided to only post on dramas that have completed after being completely burned by Ghost Detective… sigh. I rarely post on dramas but tho ones I have posted on (Misty, Ghost Detective) have such terrible endings despite wonderful cast with Ghost Detective definitely being the worst. On that note: The Guest was so awesome. Director and Writer notes will be translated very shortly.

    I know how frustrating it can be to be disappointed by drama endings when there was so much promises at the beginnings. But don’t lose hope! There will be another drama which will carry you away, hopefully until the last second! 😉

    I feel your pain, I got traumatized with Radio Romance, it’s not that bad, I really liked the OTP but I was so disappointed with the plot and at one point it became a chore to watch it every week. And to think I was so hype and happy watching the 1st few episodes, sigh.

      Same… It started off well and I was so excited to see the potential. Choi Daniel and Park EunBin were a plus too. There were hints that the writer didn’t know where she was going with all the plots she was trying to weave in and now I cant get myself to finish the last 5 eps. 😭

Ghost Detective Ep 10-11(Ep19-22) – favorite screencap of this episode. Thoughts in the comments!

    Yet to catch up on recent episodes. Hope he doesn’t go to the dark side.

      Same here! I think it’s a bit ridiculous that he is so sure he’s gone to the dark side. He’s technically a “new” ghost. He can touch things becuase of those “strong emotions” and had two outbursts of “evilness.” He doesn’t even ask if there is a possibility to stay good and just runs off on his own! YeoWool was frustrating in her own but he’s starting to get me frustrated… sighs

        I kinda lost interest on yeoWool few weeks back. Don’t know if it’s her character or acting or both.
        I am curious about the reporter joining the team.
        And I completely don’t get the sister boyfriend. Just like that he went evil? He seems comfortable doing bad things. Even a tad happy.
        Hoping I catch up on all episodes this weekend.

        1
        1

          Yeah.. It’s hard to redeem YeoWool’s character now. I wish she continued her persistence and quickwittedness of ep 1.

          The reporter was really unexpected. I didnt expect him to have a connection with Hye. But yeah.. Gyeol is so weird. It’s hard to understand his perspective. I wont be able to catch up until next week but it looks like there are still twists to come which I’m excited for. The unexpectedness of some parts of the drama is still keeping me with this drama.
