Beanie level: Errand boy

I really wish Netflix could do better on subtitling their kdramas.
For example, My Liberation Notes..

“Worship” gives me the heebie-jeebies, I think cherish would be (much) better choice

    But he literally looked up the definition, and “추앙” indeed means worship or revere.

    I think, it was the point, she wanted more than love like veneration.

The last ten minutes of Dali and the Gamjatang was a brilliant piece of writing, made even better by the inspired direction

Brava👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

    Oh! I haven’t seen this week’s episode yet but @beantown you got me thinking.
    O/T. The last ten minutes of episode 8 of NAVILLERA is some of the best kdrama television I have seen this year. NAVILLERA is my favorites of the year.
    Big D&G fan here. Looking forward to episode 11 tonight.

      The ending scene of ep8 of Navillera will go down the memory lane as one of the best Kdrama moments for me.

      I agree with you about the ending scene of episode #8, but I always see it as a companion piece or bookend with the gorgeous ending in episode #12. The night, the snow, the distant recollection- so very moving.

        Definitely. Also bookends with the last five minutes of episode 10 when Deok-chul gets out of the car and dances for Chae-rok across the tracks.
        (All those scenes were wonderful. Along with the direction, acting and music, the editing was superb. Fond memories already and it is only 6-7 months since NAVILLERA aired.)

        Ditto for me – I love how the three dancing scenes mirror each other and soar emotionally.

    Back to D&G, the ending scene in Ep 11 and the son-and-father scene in Ep 12 are both so very good. Both said a lot about the notion of a family.

I am not sure why it took 6 years to figure out that Beauty Inside is a re-tooling of David Levithans novel Every Day, I book I see every day!🤪

Full props to a fantastic opening for Nevertheless, Episode 5. All I see is two souls who can\’t tell up from down, buffeted by gale winds of public gossip

Well, the writer of Bubblegum has definitely improved with You Are My Spring.

I lasted another whole episode before pulling the plug!🤪

    ooh this looks good. any idea who’s fansubbing it?

      Yes, ECOTVsubs is subbing the 2 episode special. I think they’re doing a fabulous job, as it’s a challenge to convey the grace and feeling across linguistic borders..

      And I don’t think she will share another tear any time soon…

    Perhaps because she saw the script for the goofy plane incident and suddenly realized what she had signed up for?

    I thought it was under 39 seconds. Anyway, I think we got that out of our way. So hoping we don’t need to see that anymore.

    I enjoyed the first episode. CSW is 🤩.

Sadly, not even finished with the first episode of IOTNBO and the overused trope (….why, yes, it is oxymoronic) of a fated OTP sharing a hideous childhood trauma surfaces, flapping butterfly wings

    Actually Moon Tae being attracted to the writer despite all the siren blaring and red flags can easily be explained by that. Otherwise, a nurse specializing in mental health care should steer clear.

      He (Kang tae) can’t help playing ‘the rescuer’, it looks like he’s done it his whole life with his brother Sang tae

        He said that he came to find her because she reminds her of the girl he liked long time ago….he is kind undoubtedly….I don’t think he has savior complex though and Sang Tae is his legal responsibilty…it was a nice parallel…because Moon Young cut ties to her responsibility, it looks to me her father suffered from mental illness and he is desperately is clinging on to his

I am finding it difficult to deal with all the beanie box pop-ups, sometimes even 2-3 at a time, screwing up with posting and reading.
Anyone else having similar issues?

      I use adblocker for my ‘out of the box’ viewing. It’s sad that I’ll have to switch over Dramabeans…

    This has got to be one of the least productive ad campaigns ever.
    Once we have declined something 20 times do they think we will welcome it the 21st time?

      Some how i feel the company that is running DB now, has hired/made a team to do ad campaigns but they are all newbies or novice at this thing, so they are trying this age old textbook examples on us to raise money, they are not as smart as some NGM shows like professionals who can solve the problems in very innovative ways! Lol!

      2

        Sorry what’s NGM? Anyway the campaign is pretty useless considering they only ship to like 4 countries. Unless the data shows their highest traffic comes from the 4 places, but still 🤷🏻‍♀️

      It is a not so subtle form of torture! I would even break down and buy one month if they would just stop the popups

      That’s terrible. Did you write to DB about it? I mean at least on other sites they stop bugging you after the initial decline or signup.
