Beanie level: Entertainer-in-training

When will writers learn this is not cute nor romantic?
And yes, you can talk to whoever you want, because we live in the 21st century and no permission from anyone is needed.

    I didn’t even get to this scene, but last episode he already seriously got on my nerves with his entitled Prince schtick, agh! Gong Myung comes across as a lovely dude, but this kind of forceful SL character is getting really old

    I definetely loved Awaken more!

    First, the FL didn’t change her camp everytime someone gave her an information. She always stuck to the law even she had to arrest her two heroes, the ML and her father.

    And in Awaken, at least, there was a reason why he was invicible!

    This scene of Vincenzo was hilarious!

Latest OST obsession.

The drama is over but as much as I love all the OST of this drama, I feel this song totally gets the suffocating part of the drama (which was minor to me, tbh).

This whole scene was so beautifully shot: the cinematography, the scenery, the music and both AHS and KYJ Looking gorgeous. But also I liked how the drama is not playing the usual tropes. This was the perfect ocasion for a noble idiocy moment and instead we got HaRam telling CheonGi the truth and offering her the only solution he can think of.

I’m not a sageuk person but I’m totally in love with this drama.

This moment of realisation in Be Melodramatic is so heartbreaking and Jeon Yeo Bin is so compelling on it. When Eun Jung breaks down, you break down with her.

    I have done so much dropping this year I can’t even remember everything I’ve started. I need to go back to 6FD, it was going great and then I stalled completely when it left Netflix even though I can watch it other places.

    I’m in alignment with so many of your loves, likes and do-not-watch-es. This year I’ve definitely been getting steadily better at leaving behind those that just don’t click, which has helped me enjoy the dramas I do watch that much more, I think.

      There are so many references to late 80’s and 90’s both in music and visual that I just have no words.

        One of my sisters was a massive fan too 😃
        Yes, the references are fun to guess! That tracksuit is no doubt Michael Jackson. The retro disco space theme, I’d say is Lady Gaga – so it’s retro-retro disco space 😂

    Right! The other day I was just wandering around the site and checked if any eps were available (or only for pass holders) and there was only an interview video, I believe..weird!

      Same here, Cloggie. I can watch episode 1 because it is in “continue watching”. Also, want to know what’s weirder? I watched with English subs because Spanish was not available yet but if I “continue watching” there are the Spanish subs.

    The same thing happened to Lending you My House on Wheels (reality show) on Viu Indonesia. Turns out theres a dissagreement after they air the first episode and they had to cancel the airing. You better ask Viki about it.

When Homcha began there were some beanies who said it reminded them of When the weather is fine. Even if it is set in a little town and the villagers are an important part of the show, to me they were two complete different dramas.

But then this scene happened and the magic atmosphere of both just merged and I was wide smiling and my heart skipped a beat. I don’t know if this is intentional or a new trope, but nothing could make me stop smiling.

    Oh! My favourite is Forgetting You by Davichi. Personnaly, I liked the beginning with IU and Kang Ha-Neul, after the story didn’t appeal me. I have never been a fan of the main couple, they didn’t build their story the way I could felt attached to them.

I am watching Confession and I am enjoying it. True, lots of tropes, it’s tricky, but after all, effective. I love the cast, besides my obvious love for Junho, Yoo Jae Myung and Nam Gi Ae are among my favorite veteran actors, and I’ve always had a soft spot for actors like Choi Dae Hoon and Jung Hae Tae, because you can always trust them: their goodies will be sweet and their baddies will be the worst.

In general one to the things I dislike the most in criminal /law related dramas is how unrealistic the procedure is depicted. As someone who works in the legal system I know it’s impossible to finish an investigation, set a trial and have someone convicted in one month. Not in a democratic system at least. I know this is all for the sake of drama, and I can accept it because… you know… drama rules. I didn’t make them, but I respect them.

But I am here to rant. Not about the tropes or the evident lack of a temporal consistency. Not even about how I am distracted by Junho just standing there (and believe me, I’m distracted all the time). Not even about the little over the top that the drama is with those sort of a bit ridiculous cliffhangers between scenes (they are not done the best way possible). I just need to say I can’t stand the BGM. I just can’t. Who on Earth told PD, or anyone that such a terrible music would be ok with the drama? How can BGM be so over the top? It totally gets on my nerves. I mean. Take any scene. Two characters stare to each other and then the music, that is the typical police/crime/misterious BGM that goes in crescendo until the reach the epic moment… only that there’s no epic moment, because all moments are epics according to music and at the end it is playing the whole episode through. It is annoying. A lot.

I mean, in Jaws when you hear the tututuutututut, you know something is wrong and something will happen, they are preparing you, you are waiting for it. But in Confession the tutututututututut is in every scene, loud, with no reason, not adding anything. It’s not necessary. If you try to highlight one scene with the ttuutututututututut it is ok, that’s what the music is for, but the you ttutututututtuututtu every scene, it’s just annoying and only makes the drama feel it over the top.

I hadn’t felt this way about BGM since the mess that River when the Moon rises aired. I ranted so, so much that I’m pretty sure PD heard me and smoothed the music in the last part of the drama.

Anyway, I will go on watching but trying to ignore as much as possible the annoying tutututuututututut.

…. and I’m leaving these pictures of Junho because he’s perfect even in backlight.

Another Miss Oh has one of the best OST in dramaland. And above all, this song.
