Sooo…Yumi\’s Cells…this week made me wonder if they\’re changing stuff from the webtoon?? I haven\’t read it that far, so I\’m not sure 🤔

I wouldn\’t mind it, if they did, but I\’d still like a heads-up since I know some webtoon plot points and the latest episodes are confusing me!
Or maybe I simply don\’t know enough? XD

But all that aside, can they stop using Woong as a punching bag? It\’s too much at this point 🥺

Mood while watching Yumi\’s Cells ep 5, featuring Woong..it was sad :((

After waiting ages to finally start the show, now I\’m kinda stuck on this episode, I\’ll need another push to keep going with the next! ahaha
In the meantime I\’ve been reading the related original webtoon chapters and they\’re basically copy-paste, except for drama Yumi being much nicer than webtoon version; I really appreciated that! 🥺

On another note, shout-out to the pizza that took one whole episode to make!! XD
That was somewhat painful to watch too!! 💔🇮🇹

Also, it’s been like three months now, so it was ages ago, but I finally leveled up! Yay!!

I watched The School Nurse Files last week…and honestly, what the heck was that?!? I\’m not sure really!! Just me? 🤣

ezgif.com-gif-maker4a0a8c2b1c12298d.gif

It was weird, like, REALLY weird, and I was expecting it to be (based on reviews I saw), but I thought at least the story would make sense…I don\’t know, maybe it does, but I did not get it that\’s for sure! LOL

    Honestly me too😅. I watched it because it was short but didn’t really understand it. Many things were not explained and the transition between scenes felt abrupt to me. Maybe they are planning a second season and plan to explain it better.

      Same!!
      Honestly, even if they were planning a sequel, I highly doubt they’ll ever make it, so I guess we’ll stay not understanding anything *sigh* xD

    I enjoyed it, I was reminded of Ghostbusters.

So, I was watching Sisyphus (actually just skimming through Chae Jonghyeop’s scenes lol) and when his character first meets Park Shinhye the subs keep saying English instead of Korean! Why?
Like for example CJH lines (he’s calling the police): “she is not a foreigner, she can speak ENGLISH”, about PSH after they exchanged a couple words in KOREAN moments before..wth?! Netflix What is the reason? 🤦🏻‍♀️

Also this show can get so ridiculously absurd, I’m sorry xD
But comment sections under recaps are extremely funny at least!!

    I think you have English [CC] on, not just English. So you’re getting the transcript of the dub instead of actual subs. Still a weird thing to be in the dub though, lol.

      Yeah, that was my guess too, after thinking about it. It was still weird to see though xD

      I get it ahaha!
      As I said, mostly just checking CJH’s scenes, he looks good at least! Even then, I’m rolling my eyes multiple times! XD

    The illogic and paradoxes of the time-travel storyline in this show does qualify as “absurd”. Luckily for me there were enough other distractions going on that allowed me to enjoy it.

    Ok, note to self, always remember to switch to normal eng sub, instead of the default CC eng subs 😅

I was today years old when I realized why Love All Play is called that in English, while being totally different from the Korean title. Just me?? ahaha
I was rewatching one of the earlier episodes and realized that\’s what the umpire says before the match starts: \”love all\” and then \”play\”.
And to think I even watched Racket Boys last year but never noticed!
Ahhh…learning something new every day! xD

Also I double checked watching a video from an actual match (from the recent Olympics in Tokyo) because you never know!! lol

Guess what these dramas have in common…

…this girl!!

At this point I can’t see actress Park Jihyun as anything other than a petty, annoying, mean sort of second lead…she plays that type perfectly, though, so good job!! xD
(Her characters do have redeeming qualities too, maybe a sad backstory, but still, she is mostly annoying lol)

    PJH is a really good actress and have by now mastered being the mean second lead. She is so convincing but she has potential to be much more.

      I think I saw her first in “Do you like Brahms” and thought she was a great actress, wishing she’d take on some less mean role next..I guess it’s not in her plans yet 😅

        I blame her agency. Namoo is good for certain actors, for others they tend to typecast a lot.

    I really need her to get a lead role ASAP because I have a massive crush on her and it’s a trip doing that while she’s being awful onscreen.

      I think she’d do great in a lead role! Though I need her to do some comedy, or something, to recover her image in my eyes! Enough with melo! xD

    She reminds me of Yoo In-young who has also played a lot of despicable second leads, but I always love the performances. These actresses manage to bring nuance and humanity to really one-note characters, which is no easy feat. No matter how much these characters make me want to tear my hair out, when I see that they’re being portrayed by someone like Yoo In-young or Park Ji-hyun I know that at least the performance will elevate the material.

    I loved it. I also loved it when Ryong-koo (Yoon Ji-on) took care of business in Joseon.

First post and first completed drama of the year! After being on my watchlist for what feels like ages, I finally got around to watch Into The Ring/Memorials and I had a blast!! I’m glad people recommended it a lot!

I wish I had an unlimited supply of similar rom-coms, with a cute couple who is supportive and can communicate and respect each other! I need to find more!!
I think this might be my favourite rom-com since Fight My Way.

I wasn’t too fond of the political stuff at first, in fact the initial episodes didn’t quite convince me, but I was hooked soon after that! I actually watched the whole drama twice already, and had a lot of fun both times!
Lovely cast, amazing chemistry and great production in general, I couldn’t ask for more! ^^

Most supportive boyfriend award goes to: Ggong!!

    I really liked the direction too and the fact the PD kept it until the end and not just for the first episodes.

    Twice I’ve tried to watch this, twice failed. It’s been sitting in my “marathon – older shows” folder…so maybe third time will be a charm this year?

      It’s funny because that saying is kind of a recurring theme in the show!
      Se-ra seems to like it a lot! ^^

      So good luck on your 3rd try!!
      But if it’s not gonna work it’s alright too, we all enjoy different things, after all!! 😉

DAY 31 – THE END

Last round-up post and last post of 2021, only a few minutes before midnight strikes here!
Just a little visual recap of shows I’ve watched the second half of the year, similar to what I did with this post back in June. Lots of nice dramas, lots of fun! ^^
Here’s to a great 2022 (..drama wise, at least)!

Happy New Year to all!! 🎉🥰

DAY 22 – BEST SECRETARY/ASSISTANT

It’s Yeo biseo, from Dali and Gamjatang! The best and most stylish too! Also a great Cupid…if we don’t count that part where she inadvertently made her boss’s new “crush” pass for a swindler xD

DAY 21 – THAT CUTE LITTLE DRAMA

I’d say Hello, Me!. It was simple and (mostly) lighthearted and fun. A nice watch ^^

DAY 19/20 – MY 2021 CRUSH/SHIRTLESS SCENE

It turns out my 2021 crush sort of aligns with that shirtless scene out of the blue so I’m just writing one single post for both! xD
(Also I skipped day 18, I feel like the best cameos were in dramas I haven’t actually watched! lol)

I started the year crushing hard on Kim Jung-hyun while watching Mr Queen.
Junghyun-ep7.gif
Then had a lot of fun going through basically his entire filmography, and catching him on Ig live…but in the end I was the one getting kinda crushed by yet another controversy that involved him *big sigh*. No more crushes, I said to myself!

That didn’t last too long though! Because I watched Sell Your Haunted House and ended up falling for Jung Yong-hwa a little. It must have been the pretty necklace! xD
(Yonghwa-pool.gif

Lastly, to wrap up the year well, my most recent crush, Kim Min-jae. At this point I expressed my love for Dali and Gamjatang so many times, this is no surprise; he was a big reason why I enjoyed the show so much! Of course the classic shower scene had to be included in this drama! xD

DAY 17 – BEST IDOL TURNED ACTOR

Reading other Beanies’ posts made me realize there are a lot of idol-actors around!
As for the ones in show I’ve actually watched I can only think of Kim Se-jeong (The Uncanny Counter) and Jung Yong-hwa (Sell Your Haunted House), and I liked them both in their respective roles.
I did like Yong-hwa a bit more though, if I have to pick one! xD

Yonghwa.gif

Not only in this year’s drama, but in The Package too. It’s from a few years ago, I’m glad it was mentioned here back when SYHH aired, otherwise I probably wouldn’t have given it a go! And that would have been a pity because it’s such a nice show?! Especially in these dire times, I enjoyed virtually traveling to Paris/France a lot! To me it was a light and breezy rom-com, 12 episodes with lots of laughter (and I really mean a looooot, in certain scenes xD) and some tears too, quite refreshing vibe compared to other similar shows, I recommend it!

    The Package was so funny! JYH ‘s character was the best (the chastity belt 🤣)

    Before THE PACKAGE I had never had a desire to visit France. Now I do. In fact, in a time when a physical trip was impossible I and my wife even watched a Great Courses course which amounted to a tour of France and explored its history, food and wine (and beer in Normandy).

    I recommend THE PACKAGE to anyone who is in search of a light show.

Finally I’m up to date! I like taking my time to write posts and find/make gifs, but I like watching dramas more, so whenever I’m free I’d rather do that instead of making posts, so I end up being late! The struggle lol! xD

DAY 15 – SAGEUK SPECIAL EDITION: MOST UNNECESSARY DEATH

I’m not really a sageuk fan, I’ve only ever watched 3 in my kdrama watcher life!
Mr Queen was the one I watched this year, and the only death I can remember was the one of Kim Byung-In? There were a lot of fake-outs, that’s for sure!!
Anyways, poor Byung-In was done so dirty as a character imo; he wasn’t my favourite by any means, but his development (or the lack of it) was disappointing. I remember thinking he should die (sorry bud!!) at some point, but then when it happened and the way it did made me reconsider. Not cool!
