Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

For fun, since it’s the last day of June..visual representation of all the dramas I watched during these first 6 months of 2021 😊
Looks like a lot, when put like that ahaha!
..not that many beans, though ><

    What were your top 3 favorites? 😊

      I would say Mr Queen, Move to Heaven and Sell Your Haunted House!
      Special mention to Hikaru no Go, that would have made the cut if it wasn’t for SYYH, the most recent one I’ve finished! xD

        Move to Heaven and SYHH are in my top for the year, too! I liked Mr Queen, but I think I’m just not enough of a sageuk fan to have loved it. But Shin Hye-sun is beyond amazing!

Breaking my fan wall silence after a while to show some love to Sell Your Haunted House and this badass duo 🖤🖤

There were a lot of cool scenes and shots throughout the drama, but this was probably one of the first to make me go, wow!!! 🙀
I love it!! I wonder if anyone made a compilation of Ji-ah taking off her hairpin xD

    The hairpin in the hair to exorcist the ghost was such a good idea! It was visually pleasant and super effective.

Thank god Mr Queen wrapped up weeks ago… otherwise they would have cancelled that too, by now…
This is getting out of hand 😩

    Fans (yeah, Koreans too!!) were asking for a second season till not that long ago, for goodness sake!!!!!! What the heck went wrong?!

      Aside from Joseon exorcist nothing yet..but they’re targeting mr queen and managed to have it get removed from all VOD services in Korea..

        Why target Mr Queen? I’m so out of the loop

        0
        1

          Main reason is because it’s from the same writer, and it had a minor controversy in the first episode..it was resolved at the time though; but now people are bringing it back and calling it another “history distortion” :/

I’m not even watching the drama but this actually makes me furious!!! Ridiculous!
As if we don’t have more pressing issues these days!! 😩

    May I ask what happened?

    I am reading some news about the production right now.

    They are apparently going to take a week off and re-write/re-film stuff to change the characters from historical figures to fictional ones and try to edit out all of the Chinese props. I understand why China is such a sensitive subject to Koreans right now though ironically, the props are probably the more historically accurate part of the drama, but I don’t like the precedent this sets. Productions are going to have to be really careful (this one probably should have known better) and writers should just stay away from historical figures. What a mess.

    5
    2

      Exactly!! About the precedent, I was thinking the same thing..
      Besides, drama writers have been using real historical figures since forever, it’s not a new trend, why the fuss recently?

      And also how is this whole thing gonna help anyone in the end?!

      Ugh..I better stop before I say some not so nice stuff ><

      3
      1

        I think the fuss over the historical figures would have died down like it did for Mr. Queen. It’s just noise. The real furor is over the China stuff, and I’m not Korean so I won’t comment on that except to agree that I don’t see how this is going to help anything.

      I don’t like when “offended” people get their way just because they are offended. It’s art. It’s a fantasy drama. Stop. And you are so right about how bad is the precedent…

Mr Queen cast from the commentary episodes that were released today!! 🥺
Mr-Queen-cast1.gif
It was lots of fun, but it made me miss the drama more γ… γ… γ… γ… ..this is probably the last time we can see them all together, and last Mr Queen related content..it\’s bittersweet, time to say goodbye for real! 🤧

Hopefully it will be subbed officially soon!
(It seems like Viu will release it on their platform tomorrow, though that\’s not accessible to me)

    I asked viu(indonesia) via ig dm whether they got license for the casts’ commentary clip. And they answered that they noted my request (it wasnt a request) and tell me to enjoy other dramas in the meantime.

    So~ i guess viu didnt get the license (yet).

      VIU got the license and it will be available depending on the region you’re in. If you’re in SG, it will be available on March 6!

        Why did the socmed admin answer me like that thoo ~~ 😂😂😂.
        VIU indo usually broadcast reality shows 2/3 days after korean airing time. So, i let you guys know in 2 days ;D

Adorably awkward Kim Jung-hyun and Shin Hye-sun live on Ig together earlier today!! 😍

They knew I was starting to get over Mr Queen and said “not so fast!!!” 😂

Longer version here in case anyone is interested! ^^

Watching Song Joongki curse in Italian is something I never knew I’d experience!!

    the ending ruined the show

      Ahh..I’m sorry you feel like that πŸ™

      Despite having mixed feeling about the finale, I still consider the whole thing a pretty great show, overall..it’s a pity many people don’t think the same, I know how that feels and it sucks ><

Mmm..I was looking forward to reading reactions to the finale..
But I guess it\’s way too polarizing..maybe I should just keep to myself and stay in my little moderately satisfied bubble 😅

    It’s not my perfect happy end but I can live with that ending…

    1

      Agreed! I can accept it!

      Too bad that it caused such negative reactions around 😔 ..I think the reason why it was so upsetting for many people is because the drama never addressed properly the soul situation..they left it too vague, and people interpreted it differently, having very different expectations regarding the finale..

      I’d rather accept what we’ve got, though, for my own sanity 😅

Mr Queen SPOILERS
I was watching ep 20 and I had to stop to say this, the most unrealistic thing that happened so far is people not wearing masks in 2021 😂😂

    I was also surprised to see maskless people. But did you notice that huge screen ad of someone wearing a mask???

Just watched the special episodes of Mr Queen and imo they\’re meant to be pure fluff and fan service, almost fanfiction worthy, nothing more! xD

They fit into the main storyline, but they feel like AUs at the same time! Just short snippets (mostly within the timeline of the drama) with our favourite characters, who I\’ll miss dearly γ… γ… γ… γ… 

Anyways, I don\’t know if it was a good or bad idea to watch them before the last regular episode, but at least now I know what they\’re like and I think they\’ll be of comfort in case of a tragic finale!! 😅😭

Also I can pretend that the last special episode is an alternate ending..it might be an open one, but it\’s nice and fluffy at least! ❤️

    Yes about the alternate ending; kept wishing for a 2021 reincarnated Cheoljong until the last minute, but it didn’t happen… At least they are giving us crumbs on that possibility…

So, possible Mr Queen spoilers ahead

Ep 19, nothing too exceptional/unexpected happened, meaning that the story just progressed as I imagined it would after last week\’s cliffhanger..ok, tbh I did not expect that BI\’s development to happen this soon, but it\’s not too surprising.

I still have questions about how they\’ll resolve everything (especially the whole soul swap thing..will they?? 👀), and now we have only 1 episode left, so I\’m still anxious 😅

On a more positive note, finally our couple is back together, stronger than ever! I missed them! 😍

One more thing..if this was any other drama, that baby the Queen is carrying wouldn\’t have survived this long, after everything she went through in the past couple of episodes 🙈

#MrQueen ep 19

    Am so happy they are together again, yayy! And they have sexy times, even when in the secret compartment ><
    Yes about the baby, was also kinda thinking when Cheoljong mentioned "you are pregnant", oh, so you guys do remember…

    3
    1

      Yes!! Sober kisses and sexy times!! Finally!!! 😍

      That baby is super strong, thankfully!!
      At the beginning I was scared they would put So-Bong on complete rest after the news, but they went the total opposite way and now I’m worrying about the poor baby instead! 😅😭

    I was ao worried for her baby! 🤣

Since I\’m only watching Mr Queen live these days, I always pick some other show to binge during the week, to ease the wait.
This time I planned to watch the first episode of Dinner Mate/Will You Have Dinner With Me where Kim Jung-hyun has a cameo…but I did not realize beforehand that Seo Ji-hye was the female lead!! Nice surprise!! 😍

So, in the beginning I thought this could be a chance for Seo Dan and Gu Seung-joon to have an alternate universe happy ending, I mean, they looked cute at first ^^
Starta727b4a875888894.gif

…but I guess it\’s not meant to be…I can\’t believe they made him the cheating boyfriend!
End.gif
Maybe third time\’s the charm?? 😂

Also I loved the CLOY reference here!! XD
T-and-L.gif

And now I\’m actually watching the whole show, which I was not planning to..but the two leads have such a great chemistry, I couldn\’t miss out on that!! 😍

    Seo Ji Hye and Song Seung Hun does have great chemistry. Hope you enjoy the show!

    I was very pleased with the CLOY references too. I love Seo Dan and Gu Seung Joon.

Not sure about others, but here I\’m going crazy waiting for the last 2 episodes of Mr Queen…my brain can\’t shut up…I need it to end well, or I might lose it completely 😂😭

Confirming once again that watching dramas while they\’re still airing is not good for my heart! XD
I think the last time I was similarly invested in a show was back in 2018 for 100 Days My Prince, but even then it wasn\’t as much as now..I need a distraction, or something! Ahaha!

When Hyun Bin\’s character was gaming and this song started playing…it\’s been 2 years since MotA aired but my memories are still pretty vivid!! 🙈

Also I\’m one whole year late to this drama..yet it feels like it\’s just recently aired?! 😅

    CLOY really did have a lot of laughs, I appreciated that.

    Ep 18, I can’t *clutches heart* Court Lady Choi T_T
    And am kinda just realizing how awesome all the girls are and how lame all the boys are in this show…

    2

      I know right!! I saw a comment yesterday that made me realize this!! The boys kinda suck xD
      ..Cheol-jong not so much, though..he’s cool, especially after he stopped trying to harm his Queen 😅

      2
      1

        Cheoljong is definitely the least lame, but still, he should’ve at least talk to his queen before riding off on his own, uh. Guess no escaping noble idiocy if you are the noblest of all noble…

        1

          Yeah, that was not the smartest thing…but they had to add some angst and separation, right?! What’s a kdrama without its tropes?? xD

      CJ’s other friend and his friend and the chef are ok! Also i kinda like the looks BI’s assistant gave him last week – guy could tell his boss is having a psychotic breakdown.

        I was thinking about special director Hong, and Kim Hwan, but I had completely forgotten about the chef! So sorry! xD
        Yes, they’re cool too!! ^^

        That BI’s assistant/friend guy better do something to help, though ><

    I would be in serious withdrawal too next week when this series end.

    I plan to binge on KJH’s other dramas after Mr Queen ends. Probably that will ease the withdrawal.

    I usually avoid watching 2 dramas featuring the same actor/actress in the same time, but this time I have been watching School 2017 because 6 days of wait in between the episodes of Mr. Queen is too long. Not to mention Sejeong just became my new fav actress since Uncanny Counter

    2
    1

      I’ve been going through all his projects while waiting for new Mr Queen!! I get you!!
      Watched Time, CLOY and his drama specials over the past couple of weeks..I’m saving the happy ending ones for last, I’ll probably need it ahaha!
      And the withdrawal..ahhh..it will be hard 😭🥺

      Also Kim Sejeong is the best!! 😍
