Beanie level: Errand boy

Can I safely say I am interested in everything else other than the ‘romance’ of the OTP in MRIAG? They do nothing for me.

But these two are the best! 😃

    Me too! The comedy from the first two episodes is waning and I keep getting distracted by Dam’s hair in close-up shots. The edges of her hair looks like a neatly trimmed bush.

2021 Mid-Year Drama Challenge


Best 2021 Drama (so far) 

I would have to say Bossam even though it is still running. I also enjoyed Mr Queen just because of all the laughs it gave me and boy did I need the laughs


Best Scene from your favourite drama

‘Hyeri wanting meat’ scene from My Roommate is a Gumiho! That girl is a hoot I tell you! That scene will live rent free in my head for a very long long time!

Favourite OTP

The Mr Queen duo. Sizzling chemistry. Both the leads are such amazing actors. I was very excited to see two actors that I really admired getting paired together. They did not disappoint!


Favourite OST

Bossam is giving me such Pink Floyd vibes. Love it


Drama(s) you dropped 

Oh boy! Let’s see – Run On, Oh My Master, Lipstick Sunbae, Flower of Evil (was that even this year?), Lovestruck in the city…

Drama you hate-watched (and finished)

Look I promised for my own peace of mind I will drop Doom but I am also a serial hate watcher…what should I do?

Drama many loved but you didn’t

Umm…Doom..? khik…khik


Drama you loved but most didn’t

I know not too many people where on board with Mr Queen and didn’t like how it ended. It probably deserved a better ending I must admit but for that particular genre the writing was solid and the acting was top notch. Not to mention the comedy. THIS is the kind of comedy I can get on board with.


Drama you’ve rewatched this year

My goodness! None! Ack!

Last Drama you finished 

Mr Queen…wow that was so long ago! I think I need to update my Dropped list again…

    I understand so much your feelings about Doom. I’m there with you. You’re not alone. We can do therapy together when this ends and nothing makes sense and you and I would ask ourselves why, why, why…

    Mr Queen gave lots of laugh when people needed it. I have lots of love for the drama too. SHS and KJH were really amazing in it. 💕

    I have been using fast forward button and skipping scenes on Doom lately. If it were not for LSH I may have dropped this show already.

        I agree with you the writing is not doing PBY and SIG any favors. LSH is the one keeping me glued. I just love seeing LSH and hearing him speak so I am interested in what will happen with his character. But if his story tanks, I will drop the show definitely.

          Yeah but did they have to make him such a creep? Young girl cries in the rain lamenting she didn’t even get to kiss her boyfriend. Stranger/boyfriends sunbae kisses said girl. Wtf? Why?

            I know what you mean. So I am waiting for the show to explain his behavior. Hopefully it makes sense. But if the writing on the main otp is any basis, not sure if it will make sense at all.

I don’t understand the hate Hyeri gets for her acting chops. I think she is a fantastic comedic actress. Yeah she is pretty much Doksun in college in MRIAG but her meat dance scene will forever live in my brain rent free!

It stumps me that no one questions a mythical character about the existence of other mythical characters. Like that would be my go to question.

‘I am a Gumiho’

‘Really? Does a Goblin exist?’

    Gumiho: Yes he does. And all of us tramping the world because God is busy disciplining one of her destruction weapon! She doesn’t have bandwidth to deal with our odditties

I felt his strong arms engulf me as the pain came. I have done this before! Why did I not remember this pain? The meds kicked in as I felt my head spin. I clutched at him! ‘Make it stop’ I whispered.

‘Shush! It will be over soon’ he said.

With all the chaos in the room I was surprised I could only hear him whispering in my ears. The rest was a faint dim. Suddenly a song blasted through the speakers, jolting me. Meatloaf’s ‘I would do anything for Love’. I raised my voice the ask the lady in the scrubs why we were listening to this crappy song. She asked me to soldier on, as if I wasn’t fighting already.

A sudden shrill voice pierced the air! He let me go for the first time. ‘She is here’ he said!

I looked up to see better. The shrill continued on! Someone near my ear said ‘damn that’s a strong pair of lungs!’ I tried to see better but there was a flurry of activity in front of me! I was getting frustrated! And why wasn’t anyone changing that damn song!

A tiny bundle was placed on my chest as I made eye contact for the first with the little thing. Big wide eyes, chubby cheeks and tiny rosy lips. A felt a tear slide. ‘Hi!’ I said. ‘Welcome to the world pretty girl’

The song ended in the background and I laughed inside thinking how fitting the song actually was. So cheesy. My tiny girl. My pandemic baby. From whom I would do anything, because she is LOVE.

Love

More than Friends….

I don’t understand why WY broke up with LS! She was the one who didn’t join him in the trip. And looking at previews it looks like she doesn’t want to go back to him.

Weird.

    The Hamoni-JP pairing creates a big problem for my Startup watch. They are so endearing that all other characters pale in the background. I honestly couldn’t care less about Dal-mi (whose character is rather flat apart from picking Dad’s side) or Do-San (who is virtually smooching off a lie) or the other two sans (who are obnoxious most of the time). My list can go on although I think Kang Ha-na deserves to have more screen time.

    Should I keep watching just because of JP and grandma??? I know the startup world and it could be 10 times more disheartening or exciting.

    And this is my first time seeing Kim Seun-Ho who deserves all the love expressed here in the DB community.

    His acting has improved so much. And its not just his face and dialogue delivery, his physical acting is also really good. He has imbibed Do San’s body language

    I am! But I might not be the person you need because I’m one of the few people who doesn’t have SLS and can’t buy the CEO’s love! His love story began too soon and the fact that he was the person she was calling and crying saying she can’t get over her first love, makes me unhappy with his feelings:(

      ha ha.. i also don’t have SLS.. neither do i think ML is a jerk.. he has never been a jerk towards her..

        @alasecond I agree with you in both the things. No SLS for me… CEO is just too sweet to be true. This kind of love story cant last long when things are soooo smooth.
        Then ML is not a jerk… or wasnt actually a jerk either. He is just too heartbroken seeing his parents fighting all his childhood and now as friends.. h
        Then he is just not able to express his emotions also (i think) he feels he wont be able to handle the avalanche of emotions if he falls in love.

        1

          I didn’t like when CEO didn’t tell her about the NamSan accident. Irrespective of anything and everything, that action shows how he took away her right to make her own decisions. Same with his other older girlfriend who chose to not inform her that LS went to Namsan and accident happened (in ep 7.. i know she informed her in ep 8)

          I have mixed feelings about FL and how much she bends for others. half of her miseries are of her own creation.

          Agree on ML. The guys was such a wonderful friend to her .. even better than her girlfriends. Was always there for her. And, he did make it clear that he didn’t love her back (in his mind.. because we know he totally did). However, point is.. guy has told you he likes you only as friend and doesn’t even make it embarassing for you to stay friends.. so if you keep bringing up that he doesn’t like you back .. then it reflects on FL’s actions.

          She has kissed the guy twice without permission, and scolds him if he as much as moves his finger

          *****************
          ep 8 rain scene and him trying to find the pic is super emotional.. Ong is such a fine actor (since produce days)

          2
          1

            completely agree with everything you said. everyone hid the fact he went to NamSan and got into accident. Thats so wrong as if everyone knows that she will go to LS if she finds the truth. And thats the whole point… everyone trying to save her from dilemma of choosing between the 2 when actually its her right and has to be her own choice..

            then he was always nice to her, never teased her (like typical male leads of Opd Kdramas) its just he thinks he is incapable of loving her or undeserving of getting love in return…. hope he gets to know how real gem of human being he is.

            ..
            abt the scene he was searching her pic all drenched in rain.. i was crying sadly. but then his words hit me hard like how genuinely z seriously he loves her then he is ready to get the punishment of being in one sided love just cause he still thinks he doesn’t deserve it.

            1
            0

        Exactly! He has always been caring in his own special way but unaware of the nature of his feelings. I can’t say I’m not enjoying seeing him suffer and burn in jealousy😂 but for me he has never been a bad guy!

        1
        1

          i dont enjoy seeing him suffering and pinning for her… actually i feel bad esp when he was searching for her pic so frantically…. and all the dialogues afterwards made me cry for his love….
          i hope he gets his happy ending soon and in some grand manner.

      Hey~ I thought the same thing. Before ep 7-8, I think CEO’s attraction/affection to Wooyeon is warranted (with their unrequited love and what not) but I did not expect it to run that deep so fast. You’d prefer to remain anxious than confirm her feelings for you? Yeah, but even with that it will not absolve Lee Soo and make me root for him to end up with Wooyeon. 10 years of pain is not that worth it.
      I felt Wooyeon and the CEO should take a break. She’s still confused and will hurt our poor CEO. 😯

        I thought one thing should be said about LS is that he always been honest to WY. Like he never let her hang on her confession but rejected her. I mean he probably did not want her to wait for him as never knew when he would be back. Second time he genuinely wanted to stay friends with her as he had missed her. As they spend time with each other now he finally realized his feelings for her and wanted to act on them. We also can see he is dropping hint to her about his inner world as they doing photo project. To me he really always been straightforward with her. I think she also herself when she is with him as she can do and say everything thats on her mind. They clearly soulmates to me.

          Yes LS has always been upfront and honest which I like the most about him but I also understand WY’s frustration. Now that she is going out with someone ‘in front’ of him it does look like he is liking her now because of it.

          0
          1

            Yeah but being upfront and honest doesn’t mean he’s not hurting her. After the Jeju kiss, he didn’t listen when Wooyeon said she didn’t want to be friends anymore. But I guess without that, we wouldn’t have a drama right? 😅

I don’t think I have ever disliked any project that PBG has been a part of. But I am really struggling to connect with Record of Youth. First of all, and forgive me for saying it, he is not selling himself as a model to me! Yes he is good looking and charming but clearly not ‘model material’. I actually had to google him to find out if he was ever a model in real life and no he wasn’t! Not surprised at all!!!

Also the first episode took me 4 days to go through ugh….

    Episode 3-4 I thought were stronger than 1-2. He is too pretty to be a model and not intense enough. But gosh, when he actually acts…wow.

    I totally get you. The 4th episode had me lose interest when I started watching. But in the end, those few mins did a turn and hooked me back in to go and watch next week. He doesn’t serve well as a model. But as an actor? He is ALL that and more.
