Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

want some slick thriller recommendation or any series worth a binge watch

    Inspector Koo (super underrated imo)
    Mask Girl (kinda unhinged)
    Celebrity
    Vincenzo is more slick than thriller, but still.

    (Netflix does the slick, bingeable show quite well..)

    NOT KDrama: Cdrama Ripe City.

If you have not watched University War, watch it. Its fun and for once no politics and betrayal in a brain game. Although once again, we witness women who bring zero game to the table (what is wrong with all these brainy shows; not one show where a woman proves that she is good because of meritocracy and her talent…instead become a burden to carry/ becoming team’s handicap)

i like sumin, atleast the actress.. she is doing a fav job of playing this innocent looking vile obsessed psychotic person.. whatever.. her interpretation of the character and portrayal is fantastic.. And main reason for TRPs.. Because she is so good that FL;’s revenge becomes relevant and interesting

FL character in Captivating king is just another level of annoying.
Repeatedly comes up with stupid plans and still thinks she is the smartest, sharpest person out there…

She lacks common sense. She is lucky that she is pretty and men prioritize prettiness over brains and personality

And then the acting doesn’t help as well..

Annoying, annoying character.

    I don’t think this writer is good at writing a compelling female character to rival his high-octane male lead character. Of course, JJS will chew up every scene like Yeo Jin Goo’s dual role in “Clowned Crown.” I don’t even remember what Lee Se Young’s character was supposed to do.

    I still don’t get the casting. He goes from Han Yeri, who could match his caliber, to one of the weakest actresses. It doesn’t matter how many times she is in a sageuk. She hasn’t changed much at all. Her good luck was having Kim Young-hyun, who knows how to write a character that fits her.

      agree agree.. her acting has not improved..
      i can take screenshot of her from every drama of hers – modern or saguek.. and her expressions will be the same

      she is lucky she is pretty and it is only based on that that she got so many chances when young… and nothing much has changed since then in terms of acting talent

People who are claiming poker face merits in defense of FL should watch Untamed (i am sure there are other dramas too).. poker face = good acting are gems like these Untamed. Actors should take their jobs seriously

    Doesn’t seem like poker face to me. Just that Jo Jung-suk is so captivating that anybody in front of him, even with the backing of the script seems to fall short.

      if you mean any actor would have fallen short in front of him then won’t agree…

      but i guess at the end of the day, as long as drama is watchable, all is well

        I agree with you. 😂 I think he’s an actor who brings his A-game and also inspires his co-actors to shine as we have seen in many many dramas.

    Yeah word on the internet street is that it’s bc of the recent passing – they also didn’t do reveals during the peak covid year or during an impeachment trial either apparently.

Enough of these introvert characters. Cha Eun Woo needs a crazy, passionate, intense romance where he has to KISSS.. Like really KISS.. And go all intensely passionate over his girl :p ..

is there anyone else who is not feeling the chemistry between the leads in My Demon? Song Kang never fails but it is just not working with this pair. I have seen FL in 4 dramas – Bogum (moonligh cloud), tall guy from six dragons (some cleanliness drama), JCW (african controversy drama), and this…. And I have not felt her chemistry in any of these dramas (moonlight has the benefit of drama genre because there I didn’t feel electric chemistry but I didn’t feel lack either.. Though I dropped that drama by ep 12).. But genuinely.. This drama is dull in romance feels..

        No, no, on the fanwall page, your post and @seeker ‘s post praising the leads’ chemistry appear back to back, which made me laugh.
        This happens a lot on DB, two Beanies posting opposing fanwall posts close to each other, makes reading about dramas very very interesting.
        It happens a lot less on the recap comments because people are rather more cautious in posting opposing opinions.

        1
        1

          Hahaha… fanwall posts are more self-indulgent and un-serious, but amazingly creative. Recap threads have contrasting views all the time but yeah usually not back to back. The best part about DB is that ALL views are respected as valid. All art by its very nature is subjective and it “supposed” to evoke emotions in people. Everyone’s reactions to the same drama may be different, in fact one person’s reaction to same drama may change over a period of time depending on their experiences / emotions / timing, etc.

Squid game challenge is ridiculous
1. Good – they replicated the movie
2. Bad – they literally replicated the movie. No surprise element. Except for the ship attack game, there is no surprise element at all. Where is the fun in that
3. These random eliminations by people is just pointless. Kill more people in the game if need be, but this is such a lame aspect of the game
4. And people are told to fall down when shot- that’s like funny as hell
Can’t take the show even half seriously

Sigh! And just a few weeks back i was wondering how Mok ha forgot about the seagull that took care of her as soon as she met human friends… but then little did i know…

Kudos to those who ever walked this earth and were able to prioritize morality over survival skills…

Looking for melons 😀

Weren’t Song Joonki, Kwang Soo, In Sung a close group. SJ and kS were like really really close. While this friend group is quite prominent on variety shows now a days, isn’t SJ completely missing?

Has the friendship also ended…

It is weird.. There is nothing.. When earlier there used to be so much of togetherness

      apparently original Ms. Marvel (Carol Denvers) can’t forgive people who destroyed Korean empire (lol.. like Korean empire comes twice in dialogue in entire movie and there is simply no context.. it is so random.. it literally feels they wanted to utter the word to put a tick mark against “included Korean to cater to current trends”

      and the “song” language.. god.. this was not funny but quite insulting

What about the Seagull who used to come and have lunch with her daily, maybe dinner too? Just because it is a bird, are we supposed to ignore its feelings?

I don’t understand the FL. No matter what, she is doing illegal stuff with this live singing and then acting so righteous…
I can’t believe a day would come where I would say the PEB is annoying in her acting. Her body language still screams of her character from whale drama – the hand faliling, the pouts… that’s not this character who is 16 or 31 ..

PLUS dude you were a fan.. Could you condone any idol trying to have a ghost singer and claiming fame… and still have the audacity to question morals of others

I REALLY HOPE this backfires and they need to learn their lesson

    Past Mokha behaved like a normal 16 year old, but present day Mokha isn’t a normal 31 year old. She is someone who was isolated for half her life and had only herself to talk to. Her eccentric behavior was learned from years of being alone in that island.

    Mokha is still being fine-tuned by society , so her sense of self-morality might be twisted. Most times, I give her the benefit of the doubt, bc she has been through a lot. Shejust wants to be a true fan and achieve her dreams. All she needs is a bit of guidance.

    Also, PEB acts similarly to the way she did in EAW bc Mokha IS Young-woo 2.0, minus the autism. Though it’s more about the characterisation of both characters (basically the way they were written) and less about PEB’s acting. Both are quirky, socially inept, talk differently and trying to adapt to a world that views them as weird. Aside from some personality traits, the major difference between them is that YW is autistic and MH is not, and if you watch clips of both characters, the difference is clear imo

      She is not eccentric.. at best she should be behaving like a teenager but not like whatever she is doing.. there are such obvious vestiges of her autistic character.. it is annoying! .. she was 16 when she got deserted not 5

      This is not PEB’s strongest acting credential…worst infact..she has no hold on her character
      ****************
      Also, in what world is this Young woo 2.0.. you are off.. and what do you mean minus autism.. what is Young woo to you.. you can’t just change characterization on a whim

    I agree with you about PEB’s performance (and I think @elinor also brought this up in another post). I feel conflicted saying this because I know she’s an excellent actress overall, but in the last couple of episodes I’ve found her to be over-the-top, flailing about, and excessively juvenile for no clear reason. It’s like she merged her hyper-social character from “Age of Youth” with Attorney Woo and this is what we got. Her singing is amazing, though, and I still like the show.

      Thank you!
      Excessive juvenile is bang on description… that literally summarizes everything about her..

      When a normally great actor has one unconvincing performance maybe it’s not their fault, but it’s either the writing or the directing…I feel like that’s the case here.

      I have not watched Attorney Woo, just saw clips here and there and I can see some similarities too, but not to the point of totally dismissing PEB acting and character shaping here.

      Just my two cents though ~

        A great actor is not not at fault…after all it is their character interpretation..

        Great actors are great because they are versatile… she will eventually become one..but i hope she learnt something by watching herself in this drama

    I am with you! I was angry at Mok Ha for calling out on lip syncing when she herself has been doing the same. I think the writer was going for naivety with blind hero worship, but she comes across as a hypocrite. Worse is the fact that she shows signs of smartness only to lapse into a nitwit. The acting is simply not able to cover up the flaws in writing.

    4

      Yes.. huge writing flaws.. and (not sure if director asked for it, but i doubt) FL’s acting.. double whammy

      I was really amused on her calling out everyone else and then when the other guy showed her the video, she reacted as if what she is doing is so moral and anyone trying to hold that against her is an evil, lowest of the low humans… and i am quite sure that audience will forgive RJ in next episode once she spills the truth

      Of course she’s an hypocrite in that scenario.
      I’d think that’s the point the show is trying to make 👀
      I’m curious to see where they’ll go with this next.

        I posted that comment before i completed the show.. so i like the ending

        I think that was the plot device for Ki ho to finally get her on the stage… her journey to becoming Diva kickstarted… and ki ho as always supporting her to achieve her dreams..

        I am quite sure he would have found a way (since he knew about fake singing) after he heard his mother ask FL to focus on hair dressing

They were really not thinking it through when they designed FL’s character.
Her mom is already in the US. She never came back, got married.
We even saw her dad leave for US…so exactly what was FL thinking by trying to find this boyfriend?

Romance him? The guy her mom liked? And then what? Mom isn’t even freaking here so how are they going to get married or whatever

    I have been wondering the same since we knew about her “mission”. How can she make her mum and her first love end up together? I guess she never thought about the future, she was just trying to do something.

    Wasn’t she just trying to kill herself originally? She has survivors’ guilt. She’s not very stable mentally either.

      killing herself makes sense, and she is welcome to…but don’t think she ever intended to… moreover finding the boyfriend to somehow miraculously not have mom and dad end up together just doesn’t make sense
      *******
      Why do you say survivor’s guilt? Isn’t there problem that parents got divorced and SHE THINKS they don’t love her

          oh yeah.. that whole death plot came abruptly in one of the recent episode flashback.. the show is super random for me at the moment
