Different countries need to exist with the sole responsibility of providing us with dramas. When one country disappoints, someone else must step up! Go go Next Life Begins!! 😛

    Are you talking about new life begins? I’m enjoying that a lot too. In fact, as you said, I find myself liking more c dramas than kdramas. Alas, not many last well till the end so I only usually watch them when there are already rave reviews. This one however, I started because of BJT and wasn’t disappointed.

      I am watching this and lighter and princess (good looking people who can act is wholesome)

Dear Universe,

I demand more quality all encompassing romantic dramas.

Thank you very much in advance!

    That’s really funny. I started to google ‘The secret’ as I thought it was a new K drama rom com I had missed the posts for and of course it brings up… what it really is and I feel a fool😳

      It was a big hit here like 16 years ago. I read it, but I felt sorry I did believe it for a while.

        It was and still is pretty popular across the globe that’s why I felt stupid when I reread the post🤣

          You shouldn’t. I truly don’t think anyone should believe it. But that’s my own opinion.

        oh yeah… its a joke.. i am surprised it was a big hit specially in the US .. so funny

        the book is super old.. anyway variations of this are still being popularized… and i was watching a podcast from this stanford neuroscience dept head.. he rejects and basically calls this book crap in such a funny polite way .. for people who still buy into wish fulfillment

          i don’t think i even finished it because i was generally so bored of it.. the only reason i stuck around was because of how good looking both male actors are

        I know, it’s been a bad year for straight forward romance like 25,21 Business Proposal, Once upon a small town, Seasons of Blossom and Shooting Stars. Let’s hope that we get some basic rom coms before the year end.

          Yeah.. we had so many legal dramas that dramas that are so complicated I didn’t even want to press start.

How is curtain call? worth watching or is the jury still out on the drama

1
2

    The jury is out for me. I don’t like to be tense when watching a drama unless its a comedy then I know the laugh will ease the tension. I have not been able to watch more than 5 mins of this week’s episodes because the tension is palpable and reading the comments it sounds like they are emphasising the fear of being found out from the start. So I am not sure if I will have to hold out for a couple more weeks and then binge through until we get to calmer waters.

    Not for me. Yes KNH is amazing (in the first episode he plays like 4 different characters and I buy them all), but the story is not for me. I tried and watched up to episode 3 but no. I know it’s a great drama but no. Maybe it’s that I am not in the mood…

    I saw the last time you put out the call your buddies came up with some ideas so hopefully they will do you proud again. There are a few new ones starting later this week too so maybe you will find one you like in amongst them. Are you starting and dropping or are you struggling to find ones to start?

        Isn’t it annoying when starting something and it’s just not keeping us interested. Hope the others come through with something of interest for you.

        Golden spoon is excellent, but I’m too stressed to watch it week by week. It’ll be a binge watch eventually for me. Gus’s electronics is hilarious.

Whatever may be, you got to give kudos to BTS for remaining absolutely scandal free for entirety of their career.. no drugs, no drunk driving, no burning sun, no rude behaviors.. literally nothing..

And, just to be super clear, this is to BTS credit, NOT TO ARMY. Fandom has no role in this.

    Agreed it shows that they were professionals who worked hard at that craft and all the elements that go with it. I did wonder if they all got to go home and be free before the sign up as living in a shared house under the spotlight for 10 years must have been so hard.

    Of course it has nothing to do with the fandom 😅 this is about their characters and disciplines, which they work on on their own. Why did you think the fandom would take the credit for that? 😆

    Congrats for being decent people, I guess? ..seems a pretty low standard though, put like that 😅

    Also their career is not over yet!

Little women is good!Nice new take with characters somewhat similar to d book, Standard korean murder mystery with bad rich politican, but freshness comes from women fighting this time instead of MLs

Can someone help URGENT , DIRE, NEED
I took a back up of all my videos and phots on google photos app.
Samsung 8+ – went to device maintenance, clicked on videos and deleted the ones I saw were already uploded on google photos.
However, as soon as I deleted the video, videos dissapeared from google photos as well.
Then there was an option to clean space on device for files already backedup. I ran that. But, only to realize, essentially all my videos got deleted

I checked “Trash/Bin” on google photos. I don’t see the files. I cheked gdrive, I don’t see the files. Only files I see on gdrive trash/bin folder are the ones I directly uploaded or deleted to gdrive (nothing that was done via google photos)

I tried downloading file manager and another app – it apparently restored some smallest size video files.

Can someone guide. What the hell happened when I selected videos in device maintenance and deleted a few files.. And why did it dissapear from google photos

Big Mouse – i don’t get it why thrillers oust their “masterminds” from ep 1 itself, clearly Mayor is our big villain, but he did save ML (ep2) from being killed in prison by breaking news of big mouse

    but in ep 2 he did save ML from being killed in the prison by breaking / faking news of him being the big mouse..

    anyways, clear at this point that he is the accomplice in killing that man.. but big mouse might just be a robinhood mouse

Watching marvel’s dr strange..

This is bad..

Like a magical horror slasher..

Have they run out of villains

This is westview all over, why did she even fight agatha

    Hmm.. The way I understand it, it was the Darkhold taking the reins. During that scene with Charles taking over her head for a while, he found Wanda buried underneath the rubble of her trauma. Wanda wasn’t emotionally stable when she took the Darkhold from Agatha. Plus the epilogue from WandaVision showed her poring over the text almost nonstop. So it’s no wonder the darkness consumed her. After all, Sinister Strange was no different. At least with Wanda, she woke up and realized it herself when she saw the fear on her children’s faces. Which was why she destroyed the throne so the Darkhold can never tempt her again.

killer shopping list, is it not the child’s father.. shady.. was there when first murder happened with the police (it was a weird scene with this one man popping up and asking police about it), then second murder

The only problem is, drama makes it obvious since ep 1 that this child’s story and his dad’s story and his missing mom.. All so shady.. But in a suspense show you would not give away the killer so early on

But then only 8 episodes, and until 3.. He is not even in consideration as a suspect…

so i am watcing EYEWITNESS, it is stangely addictive – 10 episodes.. and the whole blue/cold filter is so good!

    In the past week or so, I rewatched Jealousy Incarnate (Dare to Dream on Netflix). The second watch is even better than the first time, reaffirming it as my number one romcom though not a conventional one. And with a great story structure and interesting characters, even 24 eps are not quite enough – the ending is just so very satisfying. More suitable for mature audience though. Best work of Jo Jung-suk – HP is a light piece for his substantial talent.

    Then I tick off my to-watch list by starting Through the Darkness last night – so far so good.

    The drought should be over now with Our Blues and My Liberation Notes starting. Crazy Love is not top notch but a good past time to me as KJW and Crystal are doing a fine job.

      HA! I also watched Through the Darkness last week and then rewatched Jealousy Incarnate for the nth time!

      Now I’m debating whether to watch Lee Dong Wook’s 9Tailed Fox or to rewatch Nobody Knows…

      Thanks..helpful.. I remember watching JI when it was on air

      HP, contrary to popular opinion, i didn’t enjoy it as much as say reply 88 or prison playbook (which i am yet to complete).. more so season 2 of HP was super meh for me.. and i do agree JJS is way too talented for normal roles

I guess, the brand is tainted.. even if not in eyes of public, in their own eyes.. and GD did post 5 puppet boys upon his return. Definitely end of an era.. but good also in a way.. now we will see their true talents.. No more singing to GD’s compositions

Time to try new stuff

But then they might already have so much money and side businesses, they may not need music.. Except maybe TY

You know what i am reminded of each time.. just before all of them entered army, the last words GD spoke to Seungri publically .. “Don’t mess up while we are away!” (knowing brothers.. )
