Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

When the Camellia Blooms is such a wholesome show. Love Yong Sik and Dong Baek, I can’t believe I passed up on this while it was airing.

DINNER MATE: We\’re entering the angst-fest now. Le sigh, I was kind of hoping we weren\’t going to have the usual kdrama format with this. And right on episode 12 too!

    Seriously considering to FF all No-eul/Jae-hyuk scenes starting on next ep…

      Hahaha same here, my parents have taken an interest in it so I have to rewatch – I think I’ve been tolerating them for the sake of the story but I’m getting really creeped out and annoyed now that I’ve watched the older episodes.

DINNER MATE: It\’s it so refreshing to see guys not being possessive for once? I was expecting a really bad amount of wrist-grabbing at this point. *phew*

    Who needs jealousy between lovers when you have exes like Jae-hyuk and No-eul? *sigh*

      HAHAHAHA. Still really good to know that both Hae Kyung and Do Hee seem to be really confident in their relationship that they don’t feel the need to be so possessive. Though hahaha, it’s so annoying how they’re both so thick-skinned and cannot accept that they’re not wanted anymore. I kind of understand Jae Hyuk because he has problems, but No Eul? I think her pride is hurt and she doesn’t want others to get what’s “hers”

IOTNBO: I don\’t know why I\’m always shocked to find that I love this show every episode. Never fails to bring in the emotional beats in perfect timing.

    That part where Gang Tae read the Zombie Boy brought me to tears – and when I rewinded it a few secs later to show it to my brother, I cried again! HAHAHA. It’s really true what they say, truth is what makes things so beautiful. That was a pretty simple scene, no pomp and circumstance in terms of transitions and cinematography, and yet still delivered emotionally (just like Kwak Dong Yeon’s speech from yesterday’s episode). Le sigh, what a joy to watch this drama.

      I found the first week fun, but it wasn’t until this week that it gave me the heartache and chills that are a telltale sign of me loving a drama. I really hope it can stay solid throughout its run.

IOTNBO: Kwak Dong Yeon totally owned this episode from the the crazy to the emotional beats. He\’s definitely come a long way since Moonlight. 👏👏👏

At this point, I feel like 2020\’s compensating by giving us all the good dramas. Keep them coming please!!

    I thought the same thing! There have been so many gems so far this year and we’re only halfway through!

      So true! Half the beans I’ve collected is so much more than last year’s overall bean count hahaha. And most of them are really good too!

    I’ve seen lots of people complain about this year in dramas and I don’t quite understand. 2019, IMO, was pretty bad, but I think I already have more beans than I did last year! Extracurricular, Hospital Playlist, When the Weather is Nice, and Black Dog all have landed on my favorite dramas list!

    Now, if only a certain actor would please not run away to Chungmuro forever again and choose a drama, my year in dramas will be complete.

    I know, right! I already have a half a dozen or so dramas that have made there way onto my top 20 favorite dramas list and at least a couple of those in the top 10.

IT\’S OKAY TO NOT BE OKAY: It looks like a scary weird children\’s book come to life, from the opening sequence to the end. But there\’s so much depth. Love it already. New crack drama for sure.

OH MY BABY (Ep 11-12): I’m not married, heck, I haven’t even had a boyfriend in my life so I feel like I shouldn’t have a say in the matter. But I’ve been watching (HAHAHAHA) 90-Day Fiance with Rose and No-neck Ed and the main reason Rose broke it off with him was the fact that he wasn’t being honest about not wanting kids. Rose broke up with him, not because he was rude to her (which he was) or because he was not good looking (which he also was) – it was the fact that he had been dishonest, when she had been sooo vocal about wanting kids since the beginning. For her it was a dealbreaker, and he could have told her before things got serious, but he omitted it, leading to a breakup.

Fast forward to Oh My Baby – I have to believe that the main conflict this last two episodes wasn’t the fact that Yi Sang was struggling to have a baby, it’s the same with 90-Day Fiance – dishonesty. I get that Yi Sang was uncomfortable to say it, for sure it was a really touchy subject and I won’t take that away from him. Being truthful, especially for hard topics like this will never be comfortable, even with the people we love. But coming into the relationship, I think he should have told her that as a caveat – like hey, “I want to start this, I like you, but the reason why I’ve been adamant all this time is because I have this condition.” That’s why I love that Ha Ri more or less, called him out on it, acknowledging that there will be a lot of conversations like that that they have to stomach. And that they will have to talk about it if they intend to have a healthy relationship.

I think the point here is the importance of communication – no matter what the couple is going through, but especially when it gets hard, having a serious conversation is important. It doesn’t matter if it ends up with an argument, because arguments can be mended and people can agree to disagree. But the hurt dishonesty could cause can leave deep and irreparable scars – that’s what we want to avoid.

    Girlll ditto on giving examples of dramas/movies because there is no real life personal experience 😂
    Plus I really need to catch up on OMB, it’s a topic hardly discussed but so important these days.

THE KING: Kind of wish we had a semi-sad ending ala Seven Day Queen.

    Exactly! I guess kdrama writers will be confused lol. It’s the viewers who need happy endings but it’s the viewers who don’t like them too because they came out of nowhere. When the whole world was on fire, either there should have been slow progression towards the happiness or equal amounts of happiness and sadness.

      It was pretty anti-climatic so the happy ending felt mehhh.

        yup, that’s the word I’d describe it just mehh. Like it wasn’t spectacular or memorable.

      Yeah, I like the in-between idea – in the places they go to, they were not a king and a detective, they were just Tae Eul and Lee Gon. That’s a nice idea. I feel like KES was going for an ending like CLOY where they meet once in a while, like they’re not together but they have small doses of happiness. I dunno, I think it just wasn’t executed well. Or maybe I just don’t know what to feel.

      Or maybe I wanted a sad ending for a change – like I said, Seven Day Queen. Where they’re far away, they’re longing for each other but they can’t be together. I feel like that would have made a better impact.

    I don’t even feel like watching the last episode because KES has disappointed me so badly
