Watched 26 minutes of Check Out the Event and just can\’t continue. I guess I\’ve seen other shows that glamorize stalking and harassing an ex or crush, but I can\’t watch any more of it. Also, why was Minah using a hedge clipper to trim a palm tree?

I’m thinking SSR and CEW were nudged out of Master in the House more than deciding to leave on their own. SSR was super gung ho about being on the show, and CEW never gives up on anything. I know ratings have been down. The show is at its best when the bromance is happening and they’re having fun (just like any variety show), but the format of the show allows for that less now than before. Sigh. I guess I just don’t like change. Anyway, bye, you guys did well. 😢

    I think that having three of them new at once and then covid happening meant the bromance never got a chance to develop in the same way as the previous cast. And much as CEW seems like a nice boy (I sound like my grandma), he very rarely seemed to relax enough to have a good time.

Wow, I just now realized I missed a whole bunch of recaps and articles because I usually see the notifications on Twitter, and dramabeans hasn\’t tweeted since 5/29. Is this by design or is something wrong with my twitter feed? @db-staff

After watching Kingdom, Ateez’ Weekly Idol, and Imitation, I am now thoroughly confused as to who is who.

    I’d be very happy to help you out if you want me to point them all out somehow lol (I started writing a paragraph then realized maybe you weren’t wanting that much clarification) It took me a bit since I’m horrible with faces/names. The only other group I’m 100% accurate in is Shinee which is an easy 5 lol

      Haha, it’s OK, I’ll just watch Imitation now so I have AsianWiki to keep me straight. I’m just terrible with names/faces in general, but when actors are in two different things I’m watching it makes it 10x worse. I am just supremely confused without my AW chart on which guys are Ateez/SF9/Shax/Sparkling. 🤯

        When I first got into kpop, I kept trying to go by hair and learned that was never a good idea XD But, Imitation is pretty easy for Ateez with their hair colors being so different lol
        Black: Yunho
        Pink: San
        Blonde-brown: Seonghwa
        Red: Jongho
        You also have U-Kiss with Jun as the ML lol I should know SF9 better with Kingdom but still don’t have names really

This scene gave me so much stress! I hate being late. I like to get where I need to be 30 minutes early and just sit in the car and wait.

    This is me too. I prefer being early and settling down rather than having to deal with the stress of not reaching in time. My dad, on the other hand, is the opposite. There are so many times I have to wait for him to get ready when he has had to drop me off somewhere.

    lol.. i am famous at airports for this

    my job includes a lot of traveling.. and as a result there are bouts when i am travelling to a particular location on a weekly basis.. or every 2 months if it is international..

    even my international travel routine has become a “last minute showing up” thing .. but i get a kick out of it.. fingers crossed, haven’t missed any yet 😀

    (PS: I know the internal operational timings.. lol.. i.e exactly how many hours before you should be at the airport for the airline to DEFINITELY check you in .. 😉 )

      now i know the operational benchmarks… after cutting it close with all the airlines across geographies

Watching Gumiho because of y\’all. Does anyone know, does that clogged toilet trick actually work? I\’ve never heard of it.

    It wouldn’t do on a toilet which is clogged with something other than a poo. I remember days when I worked in a nightclub and we had often girls telling us the toilets were clogged so we had to take a rubbish bag, put our hand deep inside and pull out a pint glass out of the toilet to make it unclogged. First time I wanted to vomit and after it became automatic.

      There’s something wrong with their pipes! It’s the same in Spain, the pipes are smaller and get clogged when you use more toilet paper.

      Wow good to know that it works. I was wondering if that was a joke. I was expecting a poo explosion for that scene lol.

      1

        Yes, now I’m excited to try it next time for a clogged toilet. I’m always the go-to person for that because I’m not easily grossed out. I probably won’t do it for poop, though, because I agree with you — looks like a good way to explode poop all over the bathroom!

Looks like Junho needed to be on Narae’s other show, House Detox. I was itching to get on the next flight to Korea and get in there and start throwing stuff out. My whole family’s like this (except me) where they can’t get rid of anything — things have ‘too many memories’ attached, or they ‘might need it someday’. Sigh.

    I guess it’s his lifestyle that needs to be changed. Even if someone manage to empty his closet, he will buy more stuffs to fill the space lol. As he said he bought the same clothes in different color (and not just 1, but 3)😆

So I’ve seen the Butter vid a couple times now, and I can’t stop thinking about the dude (is it J-Hope?) eating a pat of butter at the end. Gross!

But… I used to eat straight butter when I was a child. The memory is fuzzy, but I think I just licked a stick of it like a lollipop. Did I eat the whole thing? I can’t remember.

I also used to drink a 2-liter bottle of soda in one sitting, and in my college years I would eat a couple king-sized Snickers for lunch. When I worked at Starbucks, I would be too tired to go out for my dinner break, so I just ate a (free) venti cup of whipped cream with toffee nut syrup.

Once, I bought a dozen donuts for me and my 2 roommates. They didn’t come home within an hour, so I ate the whole dozen myself.

It’s amazing what my body would let me get away with when I was younger. If I tried any of those things now, I’d be bedridden for a week.

Enjoy your youth while it lasts, y’all.

    oh, i bought a container of ladybugs for my rose — you wait until dark (they won’t fly at night, but will climb), mist the bush and set the open container in the lower branches…

      Good tip! I’ve heard of using ladybugs, but people were saying you can only use them in a closed space like a greenhouse or they’ll all fly away. I’ll try the ladybugs at night next season!

I know some people don’t like Taecyeon and tbh I’ve never watched him in a drama before, but he’s making me LOL so much in Vincenzo. His Heartbeat and Wanna One moments had me rolling. He doesn’t have the most expressive face in the world, but it seems to me like his serious acting is not bad either. I haven’t yet had any of those cringe moments I get with other actors, like L (whom I actually like).🤷🏻‍♀️

12
11

    He’s making me laugh, too. He’s not doing an amazing job, but I don’t think he’s horrible either. I think he’s meh. However, for my purposes, the humour he’s injecting into this role is enough.

    4
    2

      Also, I agree that he’s better than, e.g., L, Cha Eunwoo, Suzy, Son Na-eun, etc. That’s a low bar though, imo.

        Yeah, I have to admit that my standards are pretty low. 😁

        And you forgot to mention Suho (from EXO).

        1
        1

          Yes, Suho (whom I love as a hardcore EXO fan) is just horrible as an actor. I don’t want to go so far as to say he’s irredeemable (I’m sure dramatic things have happened in the past), but he’s pretty close to that.

          1
          0

      I love him to bits, but bless his soul, he can’t act.
      Also, I have to admit that he’s much better here than in The game, but even so, he can’t act.
      But it’s alright.
      Keanu can’t act either, and I can’t love him more.

      2
      1

        I don’t think he can’t act, per se. It’s more like he’s nothing more than unremarkable, at least in Vincenzo. Or that’s my take, anyway. I think he does snafu villain/dorky and dumb intern roles pretty passably.

        2

    Taec is doing an adequate job here. I really like him but not so much L. I *tried* watching Ruler of the Mask and Angel’s Mission but always end ffwd L’s scenes and ultimately dropped both.

    I think he’s doing an okay job. It would have been a good role for a really talented actor, but the drama doesn’t take itself seriously and Taec kind of fits its goofy charm.

      I still wait for HanSeo twist, because KDY is such a talented actor, I feel he’s being underused. I wonder how things would be if he had been casted as the main baddie.

Just discovered I can watch Netflix videos at 1.25x speed. This is a game changer for tvN episodes for me. I\’m loving Vincenzo, but the 80 min episode lengths are ridiculous. I was able to keep up with both episodes this weekend, woohoo!

    Oh I will definitely make use of that tip, thanks. I seriously can’t do with these extra long episodes.

    Yay! How can you set it, though? Been looking for that option last week and couldn’t find it

      Tap or click on the screen on phone/desktop and the speed icon should show up. Maybe it’s a new feature (I don’t think I’ve noticed it before) so it might need an update for apps. I haven’t tried it on Roku/Chromecast.

    I discovered this feature a few weeks ago and it’s been a life-saver, especially for re-watches.

    When T was first elected, I laughed. I said he’s such a bumbling idiot, he can’t do much harm. That’s the wrongest I’ve ever been.

    Besides the incredible damage to the US as a country, there have been so many families torn apart because of the T/Q cult. One of those families is mine. My sister, who was an intelligent, reasonable woman, is deep into this. Hopefully today will break the fantasy for her, and all the others who have been drawn in, and they can start to heal.

    PSA – watch the Social Dilemma on Netflix, everyone, and keep your loved ones away from Facebook and YouTube rabbit holes.

        If you’re already aware that the social media posts you’re seeing could be propaganda pushed by an algorithm, you don’t really have to watch. Most everything I look at online is cat pictures and kdrama stuff, so it’s fine for me. If you’re seeing political and medical posts, it’s better to be careful to check a lot of different sources.

          Silly me, i did watch the social dilemma! It’s the Great Hack that i’ve been putting off. They’re also pushing a lot of targeted ads to us, but since i’m not much of a shopper it’s useless to target me 😆

I think what was missing for me in 2020 was a big, bad, makjangtastic drama like Last Empress, or Vagabond, or Memories of the Alhambra. There were a lot of dramas that were good that I enjoyed, but that\’s not the same…

    Did you watch The Spies who Loved me? I won’t call it makjang but it hasd the crack factor, most shows these days lack.

The end of Start-Up wasn\’t bad. Overall, I enjoyed the drama. I was kinda sad not to share the journey on the recaps, but such is life.

Now I want a spinoff with Han Jipyeong and Yeo Jingoo and Halmoni running the orphan program with some sassy teens in the mix. The 3 Sans can come back as well, they were a hoot.
