I always say I’m the slowest Beanie, and today’s realization is no exception…when I just realized that 3 idols will play the ML in 3 sageuks in the next month, and 2 of them are in the same group!Did they get a 3 for 1 special? Also, how are we NOT going to compare them? #rowoon #junho #taec #SF9 #2PM

    I know Junho acts brilliant and I loved him JBL but I am apprehensive abt others 2.. are they good actors ?

    Im not watching The king’s affection, but I will obviously watch Junho’s and Taec’s dramas. I firmly believe they would perfectly suit each one, being totally different kind of dramas, and I also hope there would be no comparisons. Why? No need.
    We all know which of these three is the best actor…

      I was thinking more like: Who is hottest in a hanbok? Who do we go gaga for in a gat? I’ll be there for all the pretty!

        That is a very tough question, Ally.
        Very tough.
        Rowon is under 30, so I can only have motherly feelings towards him (ehem).
        As for babes, it will be so difficult to choose, while Junho is always hot, Taec is always hot. Put them in hanbok and I will not be able to handle.

      I thought it was so well done, the juxtaposition of the 2-D character that he was personified as with the stick character on his shirt! Also, the symbolism of the 2-D in her mind—he’s just something that takes up space without feelings, emotions, or what you would find in a 3-dimensional character. Then (literally) when she puts her guard (cell) down, he becomes more.

You know Korean pop culture has infiltrated mainstream culture when your very Caucasian ex-boyfriend texts you out of the blue saying he’s watching Squid Game…and you spam the text feed with Gong Yoo.

    And then you recommend him watch Train to Busan. And he says he will!

Just to remind you all that both Dali and her cocky prince were once nurses in a past life…so they’re made for each other and will care for each other well.

        Disneyland is still on Covid mode. It’s still fun, but the quality is not there.
        I think next year will be better.
        I took some friends yesterday, and we all got soaked before the firework projection was about to happen, LOL. With no warning, we had lightning, thunder, strong wind, hail, and heavy rain. It was one heck of an experience and so rare in Socal.

Yumi’s cells…So a gay guy sets his straight friend up on a date with his sunbae whom he respects and doesn’t help said friend out with an outfit to meet her??? Why does this bother me the most??? 🤣 Yes, he wore that Space Rabbit t-shirt on the date with shorts and flip flops.. 🙅🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

    Hahaha… Ugi trusted his sunbae too much to be a sensible human being. But then again, given Woong’s personality (at least from what little we’ve seen so far), I’m not sure he would follow his advice.

      Yeah, he should know his friend much better. And any of my gay friends would have known better. They would have been —oh, she’s pretty (for a girl 😆) and don’t wear what you usually do, put on a dress shirt and iron it at least! I guess Queer Eye for the Straight Guy is not a thing in Korea.

    Oh Ally that’s a spoiler right there lol. I was totally rooting for Yumi and Ugi knowing full well that Ahn Bo Hyun is the lead and Min Ho is probably a cameo. Didn’t expect him to be gay.

      Yeah, don’t hang out on the beanie wall if you don’t want to be spoiled. I knew something was afoot with Min ho from the beginning. I didn’t think he was interested in either girl. I wonder if he’ll be back at the end with his office crush though! I’m totally rooting for him now! 😂

        Why not? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I like your post and already knew he was gay, but it would not be any trouble to put maybe a spoiler warning, it would take 5 seconds. I know most of the others don’t do it either, I don’t know why people don’t question this.

          I think it does have to do with time and also how we’re word throttled on the initial wall post. I do most of my posted from phone—so it does take more effort that I’m just not willing to put forth. Sorry, I hope you still like me.

Loving Lovers of the Red Sky, and all the paintings are reminding me of my talented painter/artist dad who recently painted this piece for my son’s room which hangs over his bed! He’s also (color) blind! He can’t see reds or greens, pinks and purples. Amazing, right???

Sharing some flowers today. The large purple dahlias are from my own garden. The others my daughter and I hand picked from a local farm with our friends, the Han’s. I love arranging flowers too! Yes. My house is in shambles right now as well. Ignore the mess behind the beauty! (I need to make a tshirt with that saying!)

Hometown cha cha cha is basically a hallmark Christmas movie. Big city materialistic girl moves to small seaside town where they need the very occupation she knows how to do, with a country extrovert who is the town do it all without a wife that the whole town will try to set up with her. lol.

    Only thing missing is the village being called Snowflake Sparkle or Peppermint Valley (nestled, of course, within the Candy Cane Mountains). I love a good and frivolously enjoyable Hallmark movie – hope this drama happily skips down that lane.

    I think the story is well suited to a movie format. That’s where it originally comes from too. But I wonder if they have enough material to squeeze 16 epsiodes out of it.

    I guess that’s what they were trying to do but I don’t remember the Hallmark MLs being jerks? This woman isn’t materialistic either, she looked down on the fish job but she did quit a nice job because she refused to overcharge.

    5
    2

      Oh? The male lead isn’t a jerk though. He gives piggy backs to halmonis who hurt their ankles and shows the FL the value of a minimum wage. 🥰 And she drives an Audi and has $2000.00 shoes. She definitely finds her worth and joy in things. But she has a good heart, which Hallmark heroines do.

      1

        That’s bad writing or an insane amount of prejudice from him. He is very sweet to the old people and very rude to her since the first moment they meet. Either he hates all tourists or he felt threatened by her, whether it is because she is a young woman/beautiful/city person, doesn’t really matter because doesn’t make him any better.

        I’m not sure if that thing about minimum wage was a joke? The character works and quits a nice job for not wanting to take advantage of others. He is a perfect stranger who knows nothing about her, it is extremely arrogant of him to think he should teach her anything unless she had done something wrong, which she didn’t. I’ve been in her position by the way, I’ve politely and humbly asked a stranger for some pocket money and the last thing I’ve ever expected was a moral lesson on the value of hard work. It is also no problem having nice expensive things, this is not how you decide who is materialistic and who isn’t. One can be extremely frugal, own only cheap things and still not value them correctly, it’s not about quantity or price tags, it’s about the reason you buy something and the use you give them. The expensive shoes you talk about were in her shopcart for a long time before being bought and when she finally did buy them, it was because she was under heavy emotion, probably as a prize for having the courage to quit that job and stand her ground. Do we know how much she worked to have that car or what it meant for her? He didn’t know either.

          Yes, it is prejudice. Small town peeps have certain opinions about those from the big city. But I was trying to be ironic and funny, sorry if you took what I said so seriously.

          We already saw that ML and FL have meet each other in the same town as kids. The popular theory is that one (or both) recognized each/the other. FL did mention that she has been to town twice (almost forgetting she’s been there a second time) so maybe, just maybe the “rudeness” could be something that occurred in those earlier encounters. I just find ML’s general character as generally warm to everyone else, there must be an explanation to his attitude towards FL.
