Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

I honestly didn’t expect to love this show as much as I do. I miss it already!

I initially found the adopted boy narrative unnecessary in this show, which already enough emotional ingredients to create a good story, but damn. Choi Wooshik, Choi Woong. How can I not love thee

    The story unfolds like his drawings – all those little details are part of the postcard like image ( the Webster definition of this word is just on point) – to an ordinary person it looks like a postcard to others it brings memories or some see the little things unnoticed.

    He really sold that. I still dont like it but Choi Wooshik sold it hard.

I find myself still enjoying OBS despite *points at everything* but it makes me feel like everything post-Ep6 should have happened one episode earlier~

    I’ve discovered the joys of using the fast forward button and watching in 1.5x speed. You learn new things everyday.

      I mostly skip Manager Boy’s scenes. Which is too bad because he’s usually with Park Jinjoo and I like her.

    I still like OBS too and like the progress of their relationship. I dont mind the sequence of events. Ep10 just felt off for me somehow.

      Ya I have no problem with their hesitation and the “new chapter” (lol) – it all makes sense. I didn’t find Ep 10 to be as angsty as some viewers did, but this pacing could have been a lot better…

        Yes the hesitation makes a lot of sense given on how much both were hurt by the breakup.

    “despite *points at everything*” lol, that’s so relatable.

Anyway I spent new year’s day on a Woong-Yeonsoo fan art. I think I’m a goner…

#2021Roundup D-Day. I made it!

👨🏻‍🎨 The ML I will never forget β€” My initial answers were either On The Verge of Insanity’s walking migraine Han Se-gwon, or Vincenzo’s Jang Hanseo, but now I’d give this to Our Beloved Summer’s Choi Woong. It’s been a while since I watched a drama character and thought, Oh no, it’s me.

🧥 Drama with the best wardrobe β€” Uh, Reflection of You? Long live, le green coat!

🍎 The drama that will always live in my memory (besides Hosplay, lol) β€” There is one area in my life where I struggle with forgiveness, so I appreciate that the themes in Reflection of You gave me a lot to think about even after the show has ended.

🎧 The OST I am obsessed with β€” Running in the Sky (Hosplay 2), the Law School intro X, and recently, Why from Our Beloved Summer!

👬 The OTP I didn’t think I would adore β€” Siwan and Lee Dong-wook from Strangers from Hell hahaha.

☺️ The drama Beanies convinced me to watch and I can’t be grateful enough β€” On the Verge of Insanity! Shoutout to Kat and Pickle *fingerhearts*

⚾️ The oldie I loved the most β€” Answer Me 1994. Funny how I had such a lukewarm reaction to this show last year…

🥈Secondary charactersss that stole my hearteu β€” Vincenzo’s Jang Hanseo, and Santa AND Oh Gyeong-su from Inspector Koo!

🏸 Drama that Beanies loved but I didn’t β€” Racket Boys. Nothing’s wrong with the show, but it just did not click with me I guess and I forgot about it.

👀 Most memorable scene β€” There are several, but the first thing that keeps coming up in my head is the look in Junwan’s eyes in the last few minutes of HP 2 Episode 4, when Ikjun learns of his friend’s relationship. It was a teeny tiny moment but that look tugged my heart so much and elevated my appreciation for Jung Kyungho.

🍯 Best non human character β€” The jar of honey in Run On

🐻 Best cameo β€” Jang Hye-jin as Chu Minha’s mom! Everyone in Hosplay is so well-cast, especially the moms.

🤝 Best bromance / womance / friendship β€” Law School’s SolHwi 🤧 *clears throat* Uh I also wish we had more Mijoo x Danah moments in Run On.

😘 My 2021 crush(es) β€” Siwan? Mystic Ahjussi? Park Eun-binnie? The Go Hyun-jung??

🔋(Freestyle) My Christmas gift for Our Beloved Summer: A battery grip. Or me as a second intern so I can carry another set of batteries.

#2021RoundUp
The FL I’ll never forget β€” Oh Mijoo. I love her candidness and that she knows her worth. She knows when to apologize and when to fight back. Her passion for her work is inspiring and easily one of my favourite things about Run On <3

    I miss Run On. I need to rewatch!

I guess in the minority (of the WG minority ha) who didn\’t expect a wedding (in this season at least) 😅 But I waited for a Lee Il-hwa cameo and only got *goat sounds* Would it have been too meta? It\’s not like they didn\’t have TIME to squeeze the scene in……
