Beanie level: Errand boy

More than Friends musing..

As much as I like the CEO, I now think he is coming between GW and LS. I mean they both like each other. Leave them be!

    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.

      I agree with you with the only exception being I like NHJ. His acting is stellar as the nerdy Do San. I don’t care that much about the rest.

The national anthem scene in Startup cracked me up 😃 And I am so damn impressed with NJH’s acting! He is nailing the nerdy, soft spoken, awkward, brilliant dude! But I also have SLS 🙊

    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..

      2
      2

        @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.

            I am happy to know that FL scolds SLS for not letting her know about namsan..

      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.

    5
    1

    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.

Music has always been a big part of my life growing up. Coming from a ‘non professional’ music family was one. My grandpa was a great singer and I have lovely memories of us singing together during down time. My father inherited his dads musical abilities too and we would have many impromptu jam sessions.

My choice of music was very diverse from a young age. My dad (born in the 50’s ) and my grandpa (born in the 20’s) had almost different kinds of music that they liked. As a teenager, Britney Spears or the Spice Girls never tickled my fancy as I gravitated more towards alternative rock – Alanis Morisette, Nirvana, Blur, Radiohead. Being born is a completely different country from my parents also meant other languages were open to me too and of course there was MTV of the dish antenna era, which meant more music from different languages got exposed to me.

I work in music now. I work with musicians and I have never been happier.

I have chosen to share a classic Indonesian legendary band here with you. Padi came into my radar during my teens (that dish antenna thing, remember?) and I haven’t stopped listening to them since.

Someday or One Day is quite possibly the best drama I have seen in a long time. No no! Scratch that! Someday or One Day is the best drama I have ever seen.

Never have I ever expected a Taiwanese drama to produce such a solid story with a stellar cast and an amazing soundtrack. The grief, the heartbreak, the romance, the friendship, the twist and turns, the murder, the time travel. It’s pretty much perfect.

I know a lot has been said about it already on the fan wall. All I want to say is, it is flawless and the cynical me have been trying to find many faults in it. I can’t. It’s just perfect.

            Oh it’s been 5 episodes and I’m not that into SD1D either but my choices do end up matching more beanies so I sort of know that it will grow on me(hopefully) . But it’s completely fine to not like a show that everyone else did. Maybe you have good and valid criticism regarding it.

            @wapz I was really liking it after the second episode, it was only after ep 10 and one plot twist that it became less than great in my opinion but maybe you’ll still get into it. I agree, it’s fine not to like a popular show but it’s easier when I’m disliking Hotel del Luna, when it’s Just Between Lovers or BTLIOF you are kind of the weird person kkk.

            @leetennant It’s a great review and it made me appreciate the story more for all the main themes, also, as a kid from the 80’s, I can’t post anything against a love letter to walkmans and tapes. 😛 There are some issues I have with the story after ep 10, I can write a small rant on the fanwall later, it’s almost a tradition anyway kkk

    I know a lot has been said about it already on the fan wall.

    I think the opposite actually! I feel like this show is still underrated, and more beanies need to see what a gem this show truly is! 🤪🤪

    I hope you had seen the extended scene which is actually just an epilogue that assures us Huang Yu Xuan eventually gets her own HEA after her selfless act! So beautiful! 😭😭😭

Never Twice musing:

I said it from day 1, Hae Ri is the absolute worst. And Woo Jae is the biggest doormat in the universe.

Also I think this is the longest weekender I have ever seen. When will it end? I am getting tired but I have seen too much to just drop it now.

    Also my first so long weekender.
    I’m sticking because it’s only two weekends left, and the YeolMu is super cute.
    HaeRi is probably the most hateable character I’ve watched in ages (along with her mum and her grandad).
    At least Woo Jae has seen the light, it only took him years and being bitten so badly that he has no future, but, man, he’s understood what he and HaeRi Felt was not love. Atleast un a healthy way.

The one thing I really appreciated about CLOY was that the mothers were all focussed on the happiness of their children. Even Seri’s mum came around in the end. We don’t see rich chaebol mothers acting that way. It was nice.

To other people the profession I have chosen for myself is the most boring profession of all time. But I love my job. I love everything about it. The mundane stuff to other people is exciting to me. The stuff that gives other people heart attacks make me look forward to the challenge. The difficult parts of my job to others is a piece of cake for me. I am heartless, authoritative and lay down rules. I am also benevolent, trustworthy and strive to make people happy. I love my job and will love it for as long as I live.

Love
February
