Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

GeonWoo telling NoEul and JaeHyeok what we all want to say.
We need more characters like him, and less exes.
Can we get back to our cute and attractive OTP and forget about them?
Dinner Mate, ep. 13

I’m really late with this July Movie Challenge as I’ve been WiFi-less for a week, so I’m going to post now days 1 to 6. I also decided to only post classic movies.

The last movie I watched was Victor or Victoria, the lovely 1982 Blake Edwards movie. I love this director and I love Julie Andrews (his wife). The movie is such a delight to watch, it had been ages since I last watched it and I enjoyed every single scene.

A favorite fantasy movie is a hard one, as I love this gender (I’m including sci-fi here as I’ve not seen this category in the list), but I’m going with the one who perfectly fits this title: Fantasia the 1940 Disney classic: dancing mushrooms, hippos and ostrich, a fiery mountain, menacing broomsticks!!

A favorite action / adventure movie is another hard choice, but I’ll go with this one because I’ll never get tired of Burt Lancaster’s wide smile The Crimson Pirate. I can watch it a thousand times and will never get tired of it.

A favorite horror/suspense movie is definitely 1945 Alfred Hitchcock’s Spellbound. I still remember when I watched it for the first time.

A favorite drama movie has my heart divided between Gone with the wind and Citizen Kane. Two different movies, two different styles. Big places in my heart.

A favorite comedy is Arsenic and Old lace. Cary Grant overacting and two lovely old ladies as serial killers, such a weird, funny and lovely combination!!

Just a minute! So this happened sometime in the last two days? I’ve levelled up? It’s only been like three months since I had levelled up to errand boy!!
Wow…
Really… Wow…

I’m spending a week with my dad while I’m having my apartment painted. No WiFi around. I can’t go through the beanie wall because I keep swing posts about Dinner Mate and My unfamiliar family and I won’t be able to watch until Saturday or Sunday and my heart goes 😭😭😭
My username is Eazal and I’m a drama addict.

    Sorry but recognising it doesn’t really help. The tagline for DB was (still is?) feeding your k-drama obsession 🤣

    I feel you! These last few days found myself wandering around holding my mobile high in the air like a dummy. Been using scraps of internet connection to refresh the Beaniewall, only to scroll down super fast in a half-assed attempt to avoid IONTBO and MUF spoilers. Addiction, indeed…

        Wow that sounds great actually! Beach and dramas/DB + it’s summer so the weather might be nice too for hanging out?

          Weather could be nicer, to be honest.
          I know that when people think of Spain they think: sun, beach, heat… it is true in South and East Spain, but in the part of Spain where I live (just the opposite: NorthWest) we are more or less like the Spanish Scotland: rain, green hills, cows and pipes 🤗

    Kwan Dong-yeon’s cameo cracks me up and then breaks me down with his final scene. AH!

      He was amazing, showing so much vulnerability in that last scene. He’s a great actor, not only a pretty face.

Yoon Jae Young. You, selfish jerk.

Oh my baby episode 13.

    It’s a long time ago since I got so annoyed by a second lead, but Yoon Jae Young’s selfishness really makes my blood boil.

      While I watch, I keep repeating myself: no, he won’t do it. But then he does. He’s only thinking about him. He doesn’t know what love means. Right now I’m really sorry for Doha.

        I’m most annoyed how he’s overstepping all the boundaries. Sometimes he behaves like a brother to Hari, then he switches to best friend, but suddenly he wants to be seen as man, even though she’s in a relationship. So how is she supposed to react? This is certainly not love (in whatever form). And I’m also sorry for Doha. Both parents are clearly to caught up in their personal emotional mess.

    Sorry for being late but I just noticed this post. I loved Seo Kang-joon (and his physicality) in WATCHER. He looked great in that uniform and handled himself very well on a motorcycle when he was in CHIPS (1977-83) mode early in the drama.

The only reason I could cope with the last part of this drama.

I love the use of framing in Dinner Mate, specially with the leads, but I really liked this scene and I wish there were more GunWons in dramaland (and the world) talking this frankly.

    I really like him! I wish he were a bigger part of the show.

    Sweetie pie Gun-woo, feel bad for him for always trying to help and getting caught in the middle. He should connect with Byung-jin and hang out together to bitch about these people taking them for granted!

My unfamiliar family is such a well acted drama. All cast is magnificent. I would like to choose one among the whole, but it\’s really complicated.

Among the multiple things that caught my eye in It’s Okay not to be Okay is the fact that in all the scenes that Kang Tae and Moon Young share they both stare at each other in the eye, as equals.

It’s complicated as Kim Soo Hyun is 1,80 and Seo Ye Ji is 1,69. So that’s (among others) the reason for the amazing stilettos she’s wearing.

Today I learned something really important about the 49 days that usually appear in dramaland when one of the characters is given that exacta amount of time to perform a task or to redeem him/herself.
I never new, but today a good Malaysian friend told me about it, as today it is the 49th day of his mum’s passing.
He told me it was a big day in Chinese tradition because “After death the consciousness takes at least 49 days to travel from one life to the next. Prayers conducted by the living can assist the dead through this journey and can help to guide them toward a good rebirth\”.
I’m really grateful to know about this.

    Yea, my grandfather (from mum’s side) passed away on May 30th, and we’re in the midst of waiting for the 49th day to come, wherein the family will then need to go to the temple for a Buddhist mass to say our final prayers for his rebirth…. My mum and I are both Christians, whereas the rest of the extended family is either agnostic or Buddhist, so my mom and I will be present for the mass but just observing and not really participating like the rest of the fam…. I’d say that the traditions are more of a Buddhist thing than a Chinese thing

Adults talking adults on episode 1.

Nice change. No candies around. Even better.

I know it all can change in a minute, but so far… just as Koo Moon Young says “Wow!”

    I choked when he said “is it worth more than money”. Never expected this in a kdrama

      I was all… what has he said??? Am I really watching a kdrama??
      Episode one and they’ve mentioned sex openly.
      At this rate, episode 8 is not a fish kiss, I’m telling you.

I don’t care about the all the tropes that can appear in It’s Okay not to be Okay because I’m totally sold to the beauty of Kim Soo Hyun and Seo Ye Ji. They are not from this world.

    And they seem to have such great chemistry. When they are staring at each other, you can feel the intensity. I can’t fast forward because I don’t want to miss a single look
