Hi, Beanies!

Last week I was traveling in space and time (yes again). I spent some wonderful days in Malta (yes again) in a lovely Regency event (and… yes again).

Let me share some nice photos form the event. The Saturday dress was the only new one, I always have the best intentions to sew two dresses, but in the end I only managed to finish that one. I’m afraid I’m a lazy person, hahaha. And also I share a detail of a certain brooch I think you will recognize, hehe.

I’m already counting the days to go back to Malta. It always feels like being home!

    That looks like it was such a wonderful experience!!! That’s a really cool hobby. Thank you for sharing photos from your event. 🤗

    Thank you so much for sharing your happy memories with us. We feel like we are time travelling with you too.
    My first office was near the Embassy of Malta, therefore it always has a very special place in my heart.

    We kept an “eye” out for your special brooch. Hope you enjoy wearing it.

      why is it a time travel? its cosplay?

      1
      1

        Not cosplay, it was a reenactment event. A Regency weekend in Malta it’s organised by a Maltese group and we enjoy activities from that period (Regency / Napoleonic era would be from 1790 to 1820 more or less). This time we visited a Monastety on Saturday, then had lunch on an old church yard. On Saturday evening we had a ball, and we spent more than four hours dancing. Finally on Sunday we had a picnic day on a Baroque villa, and we also danced in the afternoon 😊

It will never cease to amaze me how, when a Korean and brain surgery is involved, the patient will never need to shave their skull.

    Exactly my first thought! 😭

    To be fiair, it depends on the spot of the scale of the surgery and where the is incision and how big the incision needs to be 😅 I speak from experience 🫣 I never had to have my entire head shaved, just a fist sized circle where my incision was

      Surely, and maybe in this case it was not needed, but there is not one case in which the hair is touched in dramaland 😂

Last weekend I was the happiest Beanie as I got to finally met irl the amazing @leetennant who planned a stop in my homeland in her trip around Portugal and Spain.

We spend one day and a half together and I am afraid I exhausted her showing her lots of stones and old stuff because I wanted to share my love for my land. If you’ve ever been to Galicia you will know how different it is from the rest of the Spain, at least the part of the country that is more known to the world. We had some wonderful sunny days which I made it very clear that was not how the weather is supposed to be, as in Galicia it rains all the time but maybe, a Tuesday in July. But she could experience my little Paradise in all its glory.

We visited the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, with a visit to if’s famous Porico of Glory and the rooftops which I hadn’t visited since it were restored a couple of years ago. Then I drag her around to show her some of our Celtic past by visiting some archeoligical sites (Castro de Baroña and Dolmen de Axeitos). And of course, we share wonderful food, better beer, and lots of laughters. I wish we could have had more time to chat a little more about dramas, but we just didn’t. Next time when I visit Australia, and that is a deal.

So here are some photos of last week. None of them with us, but a little Penguin.

Eazal, why? You are a bit weird! Hahah, The plushie is Emperor PenPen, that is the ZooPM that represents Junho. Yes…. all roads lead to Rome!!

    @Leetennant was brave to come to Europe. Australia seems so far for me!

    I never went in Galicia but I saw everyday the little inscriptions on the ground which indicate the path to Santiago de Compostela Cathedral.

    1

      We travelled from Lisbon up through Portugal to Porto and then over to Santiago seeing the little symbols all the way. It felt like we were doing the Portugal Camino (in a very comfortable way) and ending up at the Cathedral felt like the perfect end to the journey…

      … even though we’re technically still travelling.

        There are a lot of roads to get to the Cathedral in Europe. They added metal plates in Geneva to show the way years ago.

    Beanies I can happily report that Eazal was an amazing tour guide and my Dad and I had a wonderful time. It was so great to meet in person and we had so much fun (yes we were a teeny bit exhausted after it all, but it was a good tiredness).

    I don’t think I believe you about the weather in Galicia. It was gloriously hot with beautiful clear skies. Rain? Clouds? Pfft.

    PS Thank you so much, all the Beanies should visit Galicia.

Most of you know that besides dramas and babes, my other hobby and passion is reenactment. I love traveling in space and time and dress in beautiful dresses with my friends. I’ve been reenacting (mainly the Regency Period 1790-1820) for the last 12 years and I love it.

Next weekend I’m traveling to Malta and I’m getting ready with all the small details and this week I received something in the mail that will help me with my look.

During 19th century there was a kind of brooch / pendant that was very common, and it was called Lovers eye and it was precisely that, a brooch with the painting of you beloved one so you could carry a part of him/her around. Just as Taec would say: google it and you will see some examples.

I have a friend who makes them, she’s a wonderful craftswoman, so I asked her for one. I was inspired by a conversation in the Beanie wall, when suddenly I realized… girl… you should put the best of both worlds together.

And here it is the result.

Do you recognize the eye?

        The Lover’s Eye is gorgeous! I hope you’ll show us a photo or two from Malta as you did last time. Why is that the chosen location for your meet-ups? I’ve visited with my book club, as a memorable section of one of our favorite books was set there (16thC not Regency, though). It’s a wonderful place.

          There is this group that organises events every year: we do visits to cultural places dressed in costume, and then a ball in a special and beautiful site, usually a palace that is not often open to the public, so it’s also a different way to visit. Besides these Maltese group is formed with the most adorable people and to me gourmet to Malta is just being home.

Don’t ask me why, because I have no reason, but I enjoyed every single messy minute on The impossible heir, possibly because almost everything was impossible, not only the heir.

It will be complicated to have a better mess this year, at least that I enjoy this much, so I thought about a Roundup category: “Favorite mess”, whether it’s an episode, a character, a plot or a whole drama (I think TIH fits every possible option!!).

Thoughts?

    I hope Lee Jae-Wook has a better end of the year because between the dating news and break-up and this very bad drama, he wasn’t very lucky.

      What! They broke up? I just came to know about their dating a few weeks back 😅

        Yep, crazy fans were too much, I guess.

        2
        2

          Kpop fans are crazy, the fact that she had to write an apology letter was too much!

          3
          1

            It’s easy for me to give advice from outside that insane fan culture, but I wish she had simply ignored it, rather than apologize – and the apology letter itself was a dreadful mistake, groveling and humiliating herself and making it sound like the criticism was legitimate and deserved instead of the batsh*t craziness it really is. Sigh. I wish everyone would just leave everyone’s private life ALONE. And that agencies would support their artists instead of forcing them into little boxes marked ‘perfect.’ And that LJW would get a better drama next time, of course.

          Is the case of Ahn Bo Hyun and Jisoo the same? Just a few weeks after their confirmation of relationship, they broke up.

          1
          4

            A lot of couple breaks up after it was made public. I don’t think Jisoo’s fans were as much crazy. Karina’s fans sent a protesting truck because they were against.

            There was the fact that a lot of people thought Karina was gay and they were disapointed…

    I haven’t watched the last two episodes yet, but yep, I’m with you – I’ve enjoyed it all, but probably not the way the show wanted me to. 🤣

    Here’s a vote for the Best Mess categories to be included in the Round-up! It will be hard for anything to top this, although a couple of shows have certainly tried hard.

        I was wondering because it was a category in the year end round-up. I thought of it as something we enjoyed although we knew how bad it was, and it’s not too far from “Favourite mess”, hence my question ☺️

        2
        1

          It’s just a way of rephrasing it. As Elinor said, why would a pleasure be guilty. Let’s enjoy every single pleasure, even our favourite messes!!

          2
          1

    I did not start the drama because it seemed way too tropey and the love triangle really put me off, despite having two of my favourite oppas. I am just sad these that both boys were involved in this bad drama, especially since they have the acting chops and have chosen better dramas in the past. I just hope they pick better projects going forward

    2
    1

      It’s really sad to see these good actors trying to do something good about it and failing. Lee Jae Wook looked lost all the time, and Jun was all over the top during the second half of the drama (well, his character was, so). And don’t get me started with female lead. Mani, you may think I’m exaggerating but I think you know who has a successor. Go figure!

I decided to give it a chance to The impossible heir, which was not a very smart decision, and I was almost about to drop, but then I realized it’s only 12 episodes, and hey, I’ve already watched 8, so I will go on. Wondering lots of things, specially what are the motivations for TaeOh to be this loyal to the Kangs, what are his motives. Best part is every scene where Lee Ji Hoon is (as every time he is in a drama). Anyway, as everyone has a brilliant and amazing plan and is two steps ahead to the others, I just watch with an open mind and waiting to say: ahhhh, so it was all fro this…a-ha… I see.

Even so, this drama gave another variation of my favorite line in dramaland: Unrequited love is not love, it’s violence, in episode 4.

    Yielding seems such a word choice for something good. It’s good that you’re showing yourself grace and giving yourself time to heal. This is a lesson that I’m constantly learning. Right now I’ve not been to work in several days. I have a freaking broken bone in my back! Like…tf? But every part of me wants to run back.

      Oh gosh, I hope you are pain free and make a full recovery soon.

      Yield is the correct word not because I feel this compulsory need to work, but because I had to admit. I was not doing well, that I can’t manage on my own. It’s hard to admit that you need to stop because it’s something more than just “a little bit”.

      5

        I understand the feeling. Somehow, we are wired to think that we have to always be ready to work – like robots. We feel guilty and ashamed when we have to admit that we need some time off to care for our health.

        To think that is our default mode sounds funny when typed. We are humans, and our health should be our priority.

It is in an episode that they are traveling to an island where there are only 2 people who live there. They bring gifts for them also, and they spent one night there doing various things.

            KJM shows his signature dance during the boat trip to the island if I’m not mistaken.

Sometimes you have to stand for yourself.

I was recently posting on my IG some pictures of my latest reenactment even with the new costumes I got. After the first post an old friend sent me a message saying “You’re getting worse as you get older”. I just ignored it and let it pass. I’m sort of used to people not understanding my hobbies, whether it’s reenactment, kdramas or kpop.

Some days later on my second post I got another message and it said “Booooo, watch out your medication, you are crazy 😂😂😂😂”. And this time I just got tired of being judged, so I just told him in my best manners that he should think before talking and that the comment was not respectful.

What I got in response I didn’t expect. If a friend sent me a message saying they were offended by my comment first thing I’d do is apologise, because I had hurt that person. What did my friend do:
– Are you crazy?
– When did I laughed at you?
– I won’t apologise because I did nothing wrong.
– Are you in one of those days?
– You don’t know how to take a joke.
– I consider you my friend so I’m joking with you and you reply to me this way?

So I didn’t like his comment, said it, and I was the one to blame because I was too picky. So I just insisted: I’m not mad at you, it’s ok we don’t agree, but how do you think I feel when I tell you your comment offends me and you basically call me a hysterical woman and blame for not finding it funny? A joke is a joke only when two people laugh. I am not laughing.

Only then he said he apologised. I don’t believe he really understands what he did to offend me, but at least he won’t repeat it again.

So standing for yourself, telling others that you don’t like what they’ve told you or how they’ve behaved is one step into loving yourself. You are not being picky or selfish. You’re just putting yourself in the first place. That’s love.

Love,

February

    Thank you for sharing what is in no way, shape or form “friendly” interaction. I’m sorry you had to endure it but good on you to call out the BS.

    The JK is the worst non-apology. My response is exactly that – it is only a joke when the other person is also laughing.

    The lesson to stand up for ourselves is one which needs repeating.

      He called, I didn’t pick up because I knew before hand she would invalidate my feelings, as he did with his texts. I really didn’t want to talk to someone who would turn to silly jokes (probably very sexist) to try and “calm me down”, even if I wasn’t angry at all, just telling him that I was not happy with his comments.

    Well done for choosing your battles, there is always a time to let go and then there are the times we need to pursue the point to the bitter end. 💪🏾hwaiting

    You are braver than me. A friend did this to me once. To express my discontentment, I posted a link to an article saying “how not to undermine your friends” or something like that 😅. And she immediately felt guilty and asked me what was the occasion to post the article. I made up some story, but I knew she knew. We never talked about it explicitly because she’s an old friend and I’m a rotten person without the guts to tell it to her face. But the closer the person, the more it hurts. You can laugh on me, but you can’t be making unkind comments when you call yourself a “friend”. You did good by standing up for yourself 👍❤

      This lesson you only learn with time and after failing many times, at least in my case. So it will come the day when you will be able to do it if it happens again, which I hope it’s not the case for you. I always say that you can say anything to anyone with good words, even not nice things, but learning to say “I don’t like what you said” is one of the first things we should learn to love ourselves.

I’ve had a not-so-good week, so I just didn’t have my mind on the fact that it’s already February.

Fortunately even if the week didn’t star well as I had some minor health issues, but it’s Friday and I’m feeling much better.

Every February I want to make my posts about love revolve around a theme and I think this year they will be about loving yourself, because only when you learn that you are the most important person in your life and the one you must fight to make happy, you will be able to share your happiness with others.

Loving yourself is not being selfish. Putting yourself in the first place is not being selfish. Learning to say “No” and “Goodbye, let’s not meet again” doesn’t make you a mean person. Even if you said “Yes” and “Hello” every single time before.

Discovering the amazing person you can be by trying to explore and learn from others, listening, sharing and being listened to will make you brighter.

I’m not saying it will be an easy path.

As Oscar Wilde said before: “To love yourself is the beginning of a lifetime romance”.

Love,

February

    Sorry to hear things have been tough, hoping you are moving towards full recovery.

    Thanks for the reminder it’s love February. I don’t know if anyone else remembered or if they did I missed it.

    January seemed like it lasted forever, but it wasn’t until I read “Love, February” that I realized that February is in fact here and how crazy that’s its been a year since the last Love, February.
    I hope you feel better soon! I’m in a love yourself mood, so your first entry is hitting me in the feels. Wishing you a speedy recovery!

      Same for me!! January felt like such a drag, and even though I knew February had finally arrived— I KNOW, because my mum’s birthday is Feb. 1st— it didn’t register to me that it is also “Love, February” season 🫣🤯

    Hope you are feeling better and your health niggles have waved goodbye. 👋

I wonder if the leads of Between him and her will actually talk to each other. I wonder if I can endure another episode of “I’m so heartbroken and you don’t understand me”.

I have been busy during the first weeks of January. Many of you know that besides being a drama lover and 2PM Fanclub President I am also a time traveller. So after Christmas I travelled in time and space to Malta were I attended a lovely winter event, meaning the days before I left I spent lots of time sewing finishing my outfits.

Hope this Guadiana River can be more present now. And just to prove that I was not joking about time traveling, here you have some proof.

      I’m imagining a brooch on your lapel with a hidden photo of Junho inside.

        There is a specific type of brooch, called “lover’s brooch” that is a painting of the eye of your lover. I have already asked a friend to do it for me!!! 😂😂

            @attiton It could have a hidden compartment tho 😌

            Nah, I meant it’s gonna be Chansung’s eye 👁️.

            But you make a fine point, it’s really gonna need six separate hidden compartments, isn’t it?

            @attiton Yes! Six compartments is the wisest way to go!

            @attiton it’s not a hidden compartment!! You wear it at sight. I have to chose among my 6 babes. It was a tough decision. But also they agreed, as they know I have a favourite.

            Wooyoung complained a little, though 😆😆😆

      The hat and the reticule, which can’t be seen in this picture, was hand made by a friend who has a small business for this crafts. The look was really a good one, I was very satisfied with it!!!

Am I the only one who has River where the Moon rises vibes with Love Song for Illusion: a princes disguised as a killer, a benefactor that is not, an evil king, just thinking out loud…

    I haven’t seen River Where the Moon Rises, but it also sounds like the past-life part of Moon in the Day, right down to the cheesy costumes. So it’s a Frankenstein’s monster of reused fantasy-sageuk body parts?

      Oh, yes, we should add Moon in the day in the maxmix. It is always the damsel whose life is ruined that survives in the hiding and then falls in love with the enemy. Add also a bit of Bloody Heart
