Beanie level: Fan club president

I totally forgot that Yoo In-na’s and Eric’s show is on. I’m loving the spies. But why didn’t Viki pick it up??? Do I need another subscription?

    The spies who loved me is great and the leads story is pretty tightly written. I’m loving all of it. Also I don’t think one needs to sign up for iqiyi, I have the app on my phone and I haven’t even logged in lest bought any subscription since its free.

      I’ve had it stop me from watching about halfway through a series unless I get a paid subscription.

Beanies, I’m looking for something to watch. Started Mr. heart, but got bored after 5 minutes. I’m caught up with 9 tailed. Started DDSSLLS and Start up, but not feeling them. Suggestions?

On DYLB?, Song Ah needs some tough violin life lessons—kind of like Twoset Violin here. Nothing knocks you back to reality better than a 6-yr-old playing Paganini.

Omg, the Coffee Prince reunion’s second episode was too good. These guys are so good. I’m a new fan of Kim Dong Wook. (I was already a fan of the rest!😆)

So, I thought better to spend my time watching the rest of the Coffee Prince reunion episode instead of the debate (which my hubby is watching) and pretty sure I’m the wiser one in this relationship.

    Made it about twelve minutes in (five of which I was texting or playing a game on my phone) before switching to Zombie Detective.

    There’s honestly no purpose in watching it—
    Trump is basically evading the questions, continuing to call Covid the “Wuhan disease”, is downplaying COVID because he “doesn’t want ppl to panic”, and Biden says he has all of these plans for all these things but isn’t divulging details (unless it’s because there’s a policy that says he’s not supposed to/not allowed to disclose details until he officially becomes the POTUS??? 🤷🏻‍♀️)….. But what do I know about American politics as a Canadian APOC (Asian person of colour) ??? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

    Already watched Zombie Detective. yeah!!!

Have I told you how much I love Record of Youth, lately? No? And then they had to have Seo Hyun Jin do a cameo. I’m dead. TOL/RDYK feels I’m getting. Show is hitting all my emotional beats.

    I agree, and like you am totally enjoying this show. The family relationships are very interesting and I’m curious what they are doing with the stories.
    But mostly I loved how his character in the show really shined. HAH!!!

      I’m glad someone else is enjoying this! I love Brahms too, but the characters here are so much richer. Everyone has an angle they’re playing. Love the complexity of it all.

    I’m also loving Record of Youth, although I can’t quite put my finger on why because I feel a certain amount of discontent as well. I like the writing, the witty banter between the leads, the characters and complex family backstories, I even like the second male lead.

    I LOVED Seo Hyun Jin in her cameo. Yes, please!

    This may sound strange, but I still don’t feel much chemistry between the two leads. I know both are good actors. I feel the writing is good. Maybe the editing is off? It just feels like we get snippets of them being cute together, but I don’t feel it strung together well. I don’t know, maybe I’m just being picky.

    I think the reason I stay with it is Park Bo Gum. Man, that man has magnetism.

So bring the total freak I am, I sometimes listen to or watch Kdramas without subtitles to see how much I can pick up. All I made out here is that he wants her to confess to him. So now I’m watching ROY but really should be sleeping.

    Well, shoot, I was only half right! But she did confess, so there!

Pretty sure we’re going to hear Franck’s sonata performed by Joon Young and Song-ha at some point. But, apparently, it’s a popular double bass solo piece as well.

    I hope so! I need more music playing, and for our characters to grow as musicians or whatever their dream is.

Do you like Bach or Pieczonka? Just imagining my kids finding their true loves through their music someday… https://youtu.be/pFDAEFYkf3Q

If their friendship fails because they fall for the same girl, an end table might be thrown over here. This could be done well or done tropey. I did like the gender reversal with getting into ones personal bubble here. And how both boys are petty and jealous of the other’s interest in Jung-ha is hilarious. And so freakin’ adorable. But it’s all fun and games until someone looses an eye or gets the girl. And @leetennant, not a potted plant here. #recordofyouth

    Their friendship is so cute and even though it seems like it’ll fail at a point, I agree that it shouldn’t be because of a girl. They have other things to sort out and their third friend dating the sister will probably be part of it.

I lost all self respect and fell hard in episode 4 of Record of Youth. The best episode so far of this series. Park Bo Gum finally shows us why he’s who is is. And it was intentionally from the beginning. We were confused about his character and the insincerity of it because his character was confused—not the actor, and that’s exactly what was conveyed. With episode 4, we see it click in his head, who he really is, and Hye Jun is clearer on this. Bo Gum knows exactly what he’s doing. I thought this would be a walk in the park for him—an easy character to play before enlisting. But now I see why he chose it, there are flashes of Sun-ho and Seok-hun (characters which he hasn’t been able to show in a long time). I learned something in episode 4 about movies vs kdramas. I’ll wait until episode 4‘S recap to share it and how this resonates with Bo-gum

    Bam! RoY isn’t on my region’s Netflix and been wondering if it’s worth looking for it on dodgy sites. I had such great expectations about PBG and PSD that I’ve been kind of holding back because I was afraid to be disappointed… Glad that you’ve said that it’s one of those dramas that shape up on the second week!

      Yes, it just gets better. I have faith it will be better than Temperature of Love, at the very least! Lol.

      It’s pretty good so far. It has that introspective feel to it. I’m already rooting for Gramps along with the two leads.

    Yes, we totally see it click in his head in this episode!

    And those last 6 minutes or so? Simply fantastic.

    Thanks so much both of you. I know nothing about music, but the little classical I listen to is from movies or dramas. I love adding new music to my playlist. So thank you!

    Thank you guys, this is lovely. I keep telling myself I’m going to stop reading about politics and the world and take the time to listen to ally’s choices. But I never do 😢 (always been bad at doing things that are good for me). This makes it so easy ❤️❤️

      Why are you reading that stuff? It never changes. Just stresses people out. Listen to music that never changes. It takes stress away!

Couple’s music, last but the furthest from least, Song -ha and Joon-young. I’ll just let the music speak for itself. And yes. Joon-joint will finally perform Brahms and love it because Song-ha will be performing it with him. 🥰

One of my favorite violin pieces. If one wanted to flex their violin skills, *cough* Jung Kyung *cough*, it would be with this piece, Sarasate’s Zigeunerweisen. And how about a prodigy this time? That’s what her character is supposed to be. So maybe she was really this good.

Another Clara Schumann piece I can see Joon-young playing. Such a beautiful nocturne played by Yekwon Sunwoo.

And the next couple is Dong-yoon (I used to go to school with a Dong-hoon, but I’m thinking his name was really Dong-yoon now that I think about it 🤔) and Min-seong. It was a toss up here. Both songs by Saint-Saens. I thought Danse Macabre would be fitting, not just in the way it sounds, but also because their love seems superficial and potentially dead on arrival. And Min-seong probably thinks Dong-yoon is worse than death 💀 himself. The second is a beautiful but a little chaotic piece for violin and piano, his Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso. I love Zia Hyunsu Shin’s interpretation with Dong Hyek Lim on piano. And I chose is because this relationship sounds a bit chaotic with all their drinking and fornication (sorry, Saint-Saens) . But I can’t decide. I don’t know enough about the characters to make a decision. So here is both: Danse Macabre— https://youtu.be/lpms9Ob56U8, Intro & Rondo capriccioso—

An introduction to Clara Schumann. Yang In Mo, 25-year old, winner of the 54th Paganini competition, playing a Romance for violin and piano she composed.

Couple’s music, continued. Now we come to Song-ha and Dong-yoon. The friends to never-lovers, with a student-teacher bond as well. These two could have been well-suited for each other. He definitely respects her bravery going out on a limb to be a violinist, and even gives up his time and resources for her to be successful doing it. But love triangles are complex with another girl madly in love with him. For them, I love Ysaÿe. I love that name. Not a well known composer outside violin circles, but also a contemporary of the Schumanns as Clara Schumann would listen to his orchestra perform where he was the principal violinist. He wrote extremely difficult violin compositions. Here is Clara Jumi Kang performing his Sonata for two violins in A minor. I love these minor keys for love lost.
