Beanie level: Errand boy

Say no to the dress 🙅🏻‍♀️

    I saw the wedding pictorial that the production had released, and I don’t like her dresses from there, either 😢

      I agree! Too much happening in the bodice area in all 3 dresses!

        How the fabric fold under her arm for the strapless dress bugs me immensely. One could tell that it’s badly tailored and badly fitted to her, and makes the whole thing feel like they just pulled a random dress off the rack for her to wear just for this pictorial, and not that it was thoughtfully planned out ahhhhh

      So just to ensure your “full” enjoyment,  tvN has kindly “gifted viewers with a heart-fluttering wedding pictorial.

      Er, … are they seriously expecting us to say “Good Job” and pat their heads. 😭

          I said ‘no’ to the dress repeatedly during the wedding scene and the shots of their wedding photos. I need someone to gif the way her bodice and her boobs moved independently of each other during the processional. 🤭

          The only dress I don’t mind is the strapless satin with the asymmetrical neckline, and that barely rises to the level of ‘just OK.’ Also, her tiaras seem to be crooked in some of the photos on Soompi.

          At least we didn’t have cringey speeches and songs. I’d rather see dresses that miss the mark instead of that any day!

            It felt like one boob was held up and the other was left to free float in the other badly fitted cup 🤣 Even in the skirt you could see the outline of the underskirt!

            And yes that tiara in the pictorial photo was just perched up on her head like an afterthought by the costume department!

    I almost made a comment about not having seen shows that show a wedding as a final ending in a kdrama for some time now in the new shows that have aired thus far. And then I saw the pictures online and I was happy I didn’t, although it was a true observation as I watched an older show, JI. So any dress it’s ok with me. 🤣 I don’t know about watching the actual show after reading some beanies here.

    Looking at this still, I don’t care for the dress–it’s too busy. But I will say that in the context of those scenes I was struck more by the lovely embroidery on the skirt than the mess that is the bodice.

JJS eats up any scene that he is on so pairing him with someone with SSK’s acting caliber is quite disenchanting.

I truly wish the FL was played by someone else.

        I was replying to you while thinking of Queen of Divorce and wondering why you were mentioning the age gap 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ (so if you are wondering what the deleted message was, that was it)

        So the very few scenes that I have seen on social media, the first thing that bothered me was not the age gap. I didn’t think about it. It was more how expressive JJS’s eyes were and how he used his voice to change the mood… and how she was doing fuck all to match the energy… like girl, do something! There are pebbles out there with a greater acting range!

Marry my Husband ep 13 & 14 thoughts:

1. Why get in the way of a couple who is in love? ‘I stole my fiancée’ He was never yours woman!
2. I wonder what those poor secretaries of evil characters do in their spare times. Light people on fire but solo?
3. That blurry upper lip is so distracting! Not criticising her looks but her makeup choice.
4. Are we supposed to think that JiWon and JiHyuk haven’t done the deed as yet and acting all coy and shy spending the night together? Ugh!
5. I like the JiWon SoMin showdown scene.
6. I want more SoMin scenes.
7. Why does it always have to be red heels?
8. I can’t keep up with the ‘transfer of fate’ anymore.
9. Was waiting for that kick in the groin thing to happen during that choking scene. Missed Judo training utilisation me thinks.
10. What will happen in the next 2 episodes?

Am I crazy to think that ep 14 was also available on Prime and then it suddenly disappeared? I swear I watched half of it already before it went poof 🤔🤔🤔 what’s going on?!?!?

    Prime showed both 13 and 14 were available tonight, to my surprise. Ep. 14 still looked like a real, ready-to-play episode later (not a grayed-out box), and only when I clicked on it did it pop up a message saying it’s “unavailable.” It’s confusing. I bet it got uploaded by mistake and then taken down again.

    I have no watched it… I don’t really feel like it either. This was the weakness of the webtoon for me: Ji-won’s story was resolved too early.
    In the webtoon, they try to pad up differently, but it is quite unengaging (I gave up on the webtoon after 40+ episodes… or 50-ish? can’t remember) Now in the drama, they just invented an unnecessary ex to unlock a new sense of irritating boredom that nobody knew existed.

    The few scenes that popped up on social media convinced me to stay away from it. So, perhaps this is a sign to go and rewatch BTS Run to keep it with Ji-won and Ji-hyuk’s initial connection. We’ll be drawing blue hearts and kitten faces all over the screen, it’ll be fantastic and so much more entertaining than what the non-revenge-revenge-plot-with-gaping-holes of MMH is turning out to be. I’m almost certain we can get some ham acting in BTS Run too and weird pink outfits, pretty sure they can do just as well as BoA without even trying. Anyway, I’ll get us matching onesies. Who’s in? Bring the popcorn!

We have seen plenty of villains in our time and none has made me as mad as this girl! The audacity for her to feel that Ji Won will forgive her after everything is beyond me.

‘I thought she will come to me…’
‘She always did even when she was mad…’

I feel so bad for past Ji Won. But as the harabuji Chairman said ‘don’t blame your feet for stepping on crap’ also says a lot.

          Apart from the tightly permed hair I proudly check ALL boxes.

          The lack of permed hair is not due to lack of efforts. Two separate botched efforts by “professional” hairdressers made me wary.

          2
          1

            I love the thought of you going to a hairdresser and asking for an ajumma perm. Sorry to hear about the botched efforts though. I hope they didn’t damage your hair.

            Loose perm would be the only box I could tick so far. Unfortunately, the ajumma is tightly perm. It’s not even permed on my end. My hair has a mind of its own. I haven’t yet figured out what to do with it or how to tame it (currently floating somewhere around my skull with weird curly bits that are almost parallel to the ground and look like I’ve glued a nest of snakes to my head — I’ve met hedgehogs that were more elegant)

            Ok, if I’m honest with myself, I might have the comfortable shoes (I work from home, you can’t get more comfortable than socks), stretchy outfit and matching optional (skinny jeans are definitely comfy and stretchy, and given that mos too my clothes are patterned nothing goes together), vest (yes, and then 12 jumpers on top because always cold), a visor (not quite, but does any type of hat count too? I’ve got a random collection, including a crocheted viking helmet that I wear with great pride and absolutely no sense of fashion whatsoever — my elderly neighbour is not a fan)

            After careful considerations, it sounds like we could go as a pair of mismatched weird wanna be ajummas for Halloween. Ah no wait! I did propose last time. I brought the Nutella sandwich, I popped the question, you gave me the ring, I ate the sandwich; best proposal ever. So we could be the Valentine’s ajummas.

          My hair is naturally wavy and I thought it would look more posh and sophisticated in a perm. The first hair disaster left me with only a quarter of the length of my original hair which took 2 1/2 years to grow back. Obviously, I didn’t learn anything from Einstein’s fake definition of “Insanity” and a few more years down the line tried the same thing with another even more expensive hairdresser, expecting different results. The difference this time was that the hair thickness was reduced one-sixth.

          I love, love, love your “crocheted viking helmet“. I too would wear it with pride, if I had one. My “visor” is my umbrella (I can’t stand in the sun), a scarf wrapped around my head, followed by a cotton cap and then a woolen cap with as many colorful and mismatched pom-poms as possible which I attach myself.

          YES, I will love to be the Valentine ajhumma and hang out with you. ❤

      I said it sometime earlier in the episodes that Marry My Husband is the drama that made me take particular interests in Song Ha-yoon and actually come to know that she has massive acting experience under her belt. She’s good. Too good.

      I’m supposed to dislike her character. I do dislike and hate the character. But I have to give her the respect she deserves. She’s(Song Ha-yoon) perfect.

        She makes PMY’d acting look a bit weak. There are scenes where I am thinking why is PMY just randomly smiling now to look pretty. Doesn’t help she is dressed like
        A celebrity all the time.
        While this woman is just being so openly vulnerable and honest about how low she went.

            Lol. yes. She is a romcom actor and a good one at that.
            And you can tell that she is acting like she is in a romcom and the rest are in some melo makjang.

            You can still feel she is PMY in almost all her projects. The only time I think she did a great job was in When the Weather is Fine, but I’m not sure if that has to do more with the ensemble.

            4
            0

            But just to be clear, I think she is a “reliable” actress in terms of ratings: Who won’t want her in their projects if a certain number of viewership is guaranteed? I think she is also beautiful.

            5
            0

            No need to hide. We all know that. She does only one type of acting. But that doesn’t mean she’s not believable in the role. She just always plays the same kind things, so I guess the only challenge (when she doesn’t decide to replace acting range with extreme dieting) is remembering her character’s name in each drama.

          I was put off by PMY’s character’s random smiles. I was like “Why? Does it serve a purpose?”. Sigh. Watching her, I missed those actresses who can do microexpresssions well and don’t mind being less pretty to play the character. In real life, being able to smile when speaking is a lovely trait but only at the right moments. The way PMY speaks (how her lips move) is also a little too mannered. Maybe it’s just her natural feature but it doesn’t help her in acting.

          1

            The random smiles are a LOT! I always think ‘what’s so funny did I miss something?’

Wow SooMin is just pure evil. I wonder how she sleeps at night! Probably soundly since she thinks she can do nothing wrong.

    Well… Yes. She’s one evil mean manipulative cow bitch face.

    But it is her point in the story. She has to be evil, and somehow, she does point out that Ji-won let her become and stay that way (which is incredibly self-aware of her and, while it is shameless af, it is also true).

    I find she is gorgeously portrayed. All the little tantrum-esque evil touches and the fake charming!

    I’m still not convinced by Min-hwan. He just seems like such a feeble and insignificant obstacle to me… which is why I need even more of Soo-min because she has to be openly evil for 2 right now. The girl is working overtime!

      I don’t know what two women saw in Him! I wish they wrote him to be competent at work and manipulative and abusive on the sly. Right now there is nothing about it that makes him a man who two women fell for.
      Also the actor – I am so used to his comedic chops I can’t take him seriously.

        I need to check the webtoon for more info on his character. He doesn’t have that predatoriness about him that I expected from the synopsis. But he does have plenty of charm and we clearly see that he’s done his research on how to seduce women (assuming he was 8 when he did said research and never re-evaluated his findings)
        I’m surprised that his technic works, but perhaps only on Ji-won who didn’t know any better then and on Su-min who wants everything that Ji-won has…

        1
        1

          If you notice him, every time Ji Won says anything he doesn’t like. he berates her or puts her down subtly. He intentionally took advantage of her naive nature

        I don’t think Soo Min would have given him the time of the day if it wasn’t for Ji Won. She is interested only because she wants to feel good about the fact that someone in a committed relationship would still want her.

    Except Flowers in Sand, I haven’t watched any kdrama since. I can’t bring myself to watch any shows without thinking about LSK. Sad part is that I don’t expect anything to change. It will just be another life lost.
    I think how I view dramas/actors definitely has changed. I don’t know if it will spark the joy it used to. Atleast not in the next coming weeks.
    I have always been someone who never watched BTS, interviews, reality shows of actors, followed them on social media etc. I never cared about their personal life. For me a drama was just a drama (unless someone committed a huge crime esp sexual assault and beanies talk about it on the wall, I would never know otherwise. Then I will choose my dramas wisely).
    But this hits different. Every time i see an actor, I feel like ‘What are these people going through to find this fame?’

    Celebrities worldwide are hounded and surely suffer a lot of non-job related stress but the Korean celebrities seem to be stressed ×1000 times more. Why aren’t more people emphasizing on mental health support for them. The punishment he had to undergo and probably what his family will have to undergo their entire lives is heartbreaking. Surely that is not commensurate to the alleged “crimes”.

Unpopular opinion…(and it looks like I have had too many unpopular opinions these days) I really liked the core story of Moon in the Day. Was it perfect? No. Could some parts have been done better? Absolutely. But I liked that the writers didn’t force them to be together in the end. I think it was done very well! 👏🏽

    I’m glad you liked it. ^^
    I enjoyed this show too.
    It was cute, it made me laugh, and maybe it’s because it didn’t try too hard to be cool or something, but I also didn’t try too hard to think about it and it’s problems. It was consistent in its craziness.

    And it made me earn a bean! That’s a lot more of other 30 shows I tried to watch this year. Or even better I watched it finished it, and didn’t hate myself for it. That’s just perfection in vocabulary.

    —I just finished Soundtrack #2 so I’m a little salty about annoying endings. LOL sorry.

    I have not watched it yet – but I’ll keep your words in mind when I do & see whether I agree.

    I agree, however, that not forcing people to be together should also be an option as long as it makes sense and is well executed.

    It’s a completely different drama and plot, but this reminds me of Possessed where there is no happy ending for nobody, but in the midst of it all, the lonely paths they end up choosing (being pushed into) are all the more meaningful. And this also did not need a happy ending because the story never called for it (we, viewers, did, but that’s not the narrative’s problem)

    1

      But we do have a happy ending here. More like a satisfying closure. You need to see it to understand it I guess. I don’t want to spoil it more for you! Watch it!

    I just completely believe that they both see each other as very attractive. It started with our FL and the way she would look at him even when he was being jerk. I just believed she thought he’s an ass, but also damn he is hot. She looked at him like he could get it. 🤷‍♀️

    He of course just saw her as a pesky human and was above all that. Then it turned sweet. He is definitely playing it like he thinks she is lovely. But also he just glows when she shows up, like a plant turning towards the sun. And now all the skinship he does.

    I just realized they took two different paths. She liked him physically first and now emotionally and he liked her emotionally first and now physically.

I know I should probably give SamDal a try but I also don’t want to be associated with ‘healing/jeju island/village is best’ dramas…what a dilemma…

    I’m having trouble mustering any enthusiasm to start it. The recap and early comments didn’t make it sound appealing. I might try waiting a couple weeks, skipping the episodes and just reading recaps, and then dive in.

    It sounds like I’m not the only one who didn’t like Our Blues?! I’m having trouble starting Samdalri t too and keep putting it off. But I think it’s more about new drama fatigue than anything else.

      Yeah Our Blues was a quick drop for me.

      I don’t particularly mind the theme of the healing village in dramas. In real life not so much. While I would love to live in such a picturesque place, the constant nosiness of the neighbors would drive me up the wall. I’d probably escape to the city to get some peace and quite.
      I am looking forward to Samdalri though because of the leads. Haven’t started it yet since I was waiting for CD to finish.
      I dropped Our Blues because it was too heavy for me at the time. Hope Samdalri is lighter.

      New drama fatigue definitely is my case.
