Beanie level: Entertainer-in-training

I don’t know if you know about this @ally-le but every time I come across anything Highlight related I always think about you.

Oraenmaniya, beanies. Long time no see.

I think it’s been a month since I last posted here, and I’ve been missing it.

I have been watching dramas, and also wanting to talk about dramas, but sometimes real life makes it hard.

I’ve been having some health issues. Not big problems, just exhausting ones. I’ve been struggling with my migraines and the treatment I’ve been given to make them decrease, having ups and downs and just not feeling in the mood of anything.

But today is a good day, first Friday in months with no headache, so I wanted to check here how you all have been and share my thoughts about the dramas I’m currently watching.

It’s always nice to be home again.

    Hi eazal, I’m sorry to hear about your migraine issues. I have a lot of pain issues and so pay attention when anything even slightly related comes across in what I’m reading. I thought both these articles were interesting this week. Maybe you will like them.

    I thought the comments by author Ainsley were the good part here and it led me to considering her books:
    https://www.huffpost.com/entry/does-lymphatic-drainage-work_l_6287d9d9e4b0cda85db066e5

    This one was even more interesting for me, including much of the comments section.

      Thanks so much! I will read them.
      Everything is related, my migraines are mainly tensional so yes, I know everything is related and being aware of it helps… problem we forget so many times!

        Right? I’m learning that I have to go far afield of traditional western medicine lately 🤷🏻‍♀️ Of course it’s easy to get swept up in potential quackery but I think it’s at least worth a look.
        There are also two guys named Sarno and Van der Kolk who have written extensively on alternative pain causes and treatments (somewhat controversially). And there’s a graphic “novel” called Pain is Really Strange that you might enjoy.

Someone send help.

I have just finished ep. 13 of Forest of Secrets.

And it hurts the same as the first time. No matter how many times. It always hurts 🥺🥺🥺

Grid. What have I watched?

Funny thing is that I have really enjoyed this drama.

You know, I love an open ending but… maybe not this opened?

But I really liked it. Am I weird?

    I can’t exactly say that I wasted 10 hours of my life because I was totally engrossed in those hours. I surprisingly never found myself ffding anything. But for nothing and I figured that out quite soon. I can say, you’re not weird, the show certainly is.

    I also really liked it. And if that’s weird, then let’s be weird together.

    I mean, I feel like we still didn’t know anything solid, but it’s not like we didn’t get anything out of it either. Time travel and space bending is tricky, so maybe the drama just tried to reflect that trickiness by being the weirdest sci-fi drama out there.

    I’m honestly still trying to wrap my head around the fact that I have no complaint whatsoever for this drama despite everything.

Most comments in Tomorrow weecaps agree that we need more Lee Soo Hyuk.

PD-nim, writer-nim, dramagods… are you listening?

    The issue is his character is not in the Risk Management Team, that is the center of the drama… And he said he didn’t want to see Ryeon, except if she failed and he must accompagny a person who commited suicide. So, he’s working against our will to see him and letting us swoon in front of our screen!

      Hope he gets an unwilling transfer (on his side not ours!).

        Oh, it will be so fun! I guess technically they can’t kill each other, can they?

          He’s in the poster as main lead. We need him to be on screen all the time!!

          Why do I feel there is a past connection between him and Ryeon and not only the scene we saw in the rooftop?

          1
          2

            I don’t know, but he kinda killed the person she was trying to save… I hope to see him becoming more opened.

            He was looking at her a ceetain way….like let me take away your pain ….he also kept stealing glancess at her concerned when she decided to help Joon Woing. Me thinks, the guy has a connection to Ryeon. We shall see.

Dramabeans has eaten the latest posts on my wall. I realised that there were no longer a limit it 200 characters and actually wrote far more than those characters but that was yesterday and no sign of them 😭

So, beanies, don’t get fooled and write directly more than 200 characters because your post will disappear in the Beanievoid.

    Oh, now the 200 character limit has appeared again, so I guess this was something wrong yesterday.

I know I am late to the party, but yesterday I watched episode 1 of Rainless love in a goddless land and I am in love.

    I shouldn’t be the one to say anything because I didn’t complete the show but yeah here is my warning lol. It could’ve been much more than what it turned out to be. It definitely had the potential and the setup working right. The Ost is great nonetheless, so are the intro stories of every episode.

    I’m thinking of filling the holes which will be left by 25 21 and ABP by watching this drama and Someday or One Day. So maybe I’ll have some company.

@ally-le I’m pretty sure you’ve already seen this, but… how cute are they?

I love all the dance steps work. Fell in love first time I watched. Clumsy name would fall down at first try 😂

I was watching When the devil calls your name and was enjoying it (less dark than expected, actually funny), but after six episodes I am tired of FL being a saint baring all kind of abuse and despise from almost every single person she meets. I know drama wants to show us how good she is in comparison on how mean people are to them, but enough is enough.

I really liked everything else, but FL gets in my nerves, really. Want to know something? You can be a level 1 soul without all the suffering.

    That was the point of her character. I really think it would have played better in the hands of a better, young actress. Lee So el was not it. Woefully miscasted.

      Exactly. I get the whole point but so far I have endured the drama, and I promised myself I wouldn’t be the mess I was last year. So even if the rest of the plot is promising and I really wanted to see how Harib arc worked, I just dropped.

Even when you are exhausted or in pain, find a moment for yourself, to make you the center of the world because nobody else has the power to make you happy.

It’s February again. Time to write about love again.

I had totally forgotten, and then it hit me.

So, here you have a list of random things about me and the things I love.

I love grammar, languages, the logic on the structures. I can\’t see it in numbers (they are an absolute mystery to me), but words are magic and I can understand that magic.

I love being lazy. If I were a sin, I would be indolence. I firmly believe I was born to be idle, but I\’m trapped in this alternative reality in which I have to wake up every day al 06:50 and spend my precious time working in this office instead of enjoying my freedom (oh! money, dirty money)… and yes, there are plenty of alternative realities!

I love my friends. They are the best friends in the world. Some of them I have never met in person, others have been by side for 40 years. Every friendship is different. Just embrace them all. Friends are the family you choose.

And even if I don’t totally love February (I’ve already written about this), I just…

Love,

February
