Beanie level: Noble idiot

I’m watching the Veil & I think Netflix shows are starting to affect other networks. This is way more graphic than I would expect.

    Maybe. I don’t know. All I can say is the car chase/action scene concluding episode two was one of the best of those that I have seen in a long time.

      And the music at that scene!!! Exactly at that moment I realized that I am recommending my friend this show.

        Yes! Totally agree. Great OST so far. After the car chase I planned to rewatch it. From beginning to end it was terrific. Like I said, one of the best car chase scenes I have seen.
        I plan to watch episodes one and two again before getting to episode three.

      Yes! That was great!. I often zone out during chase scenes because I’ve seen to many but Namgoong-min really sells the intensity

Something that I realized is that my taste in drama genres shrunk over the years. I used to watch all types, now I’m only interested in a few.

What surprised me about Yumi Cells is how many people dislike Woong because of his looks. I guess he doesn’t look like a typical male lead, but in the comics he grows on you & is pretty funny.

    I found his styling a bit weird (perhaps it just doesn’t translate well into live action), but I’m so excited to see more of him!

    I didn’t expect him to be so smitten w/ her off the bat, and that basically sold it for me lolol 😂.

I was worried for Yumi Cells because I wasn’t sure how the animation would turn out. But I think it turn out well. But I definitely can see why some ppl might not be a fan.

    I’m not a fan of the animations at all, so ff those parts.

      I’m not mad at you at all, somethings just don’t click. I didn’t watch the Pokémon live-action movie for years because of how much they freaked me out 😂😂

This is super random, and kinda funny, but this pic symbolizes the problem I have with Photography in drama’s. It’s obviously just a video overlay but the settings were so wild I had to go back. pt1.

    And I was just thinking while watching ep 2 how odd it is that the 2nd lead who’s a portrait photographer would work as a real estate photographer for a magazine. I guess its like how people think all lawyers are the same.

      Yes, that’s weird! They did the same thing with Go Joon’s character in Oh My Baby 😂

        😂 I had the same thought watching that too. Baby photography is hard & really takes a whole skillset.

I\’ve been in a big drama slump and been thinking about re-watching shows. But I really am not a BIG re-watcher. But I do want to try going back to shows I enjoyed. It\’s funny what can be hard for you

    I’ve always been a bit of a rewatcher of certain shows but just lately I’ve been rewatching some from really early on my drama watching that I don’t really remember. It’s really interesting to see how different some of them are now I understand a bit more Korean/recognise cast members/am more familiar with how kdramas work.

    Rewatching is the best pastime during slump. Lately, I’ve been craving to rewatch I Have A Lover in anticipation of the new drama by the same OTP (JJH and KHJ). It was a skipping watch but satisfying – makjang done right in the most delicious way.

    That’s what I do when I’m in a slump. I rewatched a lot when I was bored and had time. Watching short dramas or drama specials helped a lot too. Web dramas are nice too!

Anyone ever went through the recap master list (sorted by year) and look at past dramas? It\’s nice to remember shows you really liked, and some you didn\’t like so much.

Been watching alot of jdramas lately & I want to give a shout out to Uchi no Musume wa. A funny, heart warming show with a good friends to lovers line.

I woke up this morning randomly missing Run On. I\’m listening to the OST now, which actually isn\’t helping.

    Somehow I’m missing it too. This is a pretty strange case for me, but I’m missing Mi-Joo and her pieces of advice for the ML.

I\’m watching the Japanese version of Familiar Wife & I think it\’s better than the original. They spend more time on his wife & it has a more serious tone.

    2016 thru Netflix is when I started watching dramas.

      Me too actually. I have a Netflix rule that the first interesting thing I see I have to watch, so I don’t spend 45 minutes looking. Read the description for Age Of Youth and it started from there.

Didnt expect to like True Beauty as much as I do, just watched it randomly. The scene on the bus where he catches her face with his hand made me choke.

I\’m watching Tomorrow With You & I\’m way more interested in their married life & problems than the wonky time travel stuff. It should of just been about a couple learning to work through their issues.

    This is true lol. I don’t think I cared about the time travelling stuff as much as I did for their relationship. The OST is on point.

    The relationship was the best part about TwY. However I liked the entire show unlike many people. The time travel was a little slow and aimless still I think it was overall an interesting show and it would’ve been better had it only been around 12 episodes.

Kairos is such a tightly written show that when something stupid happens, it really takes you out. So many dumb things happened in ep13, it\’s like what are yall even doing, have you learned nothing.

The end of EP6 of Kairos had me screaming and clapping in my room. This show is seriously bad for my heart, but I\’m trying to power through it & remind myself how much I enjoy it.

I really like the actor that plays Sun-kyum in Run On. At 1st I didn\’t know how I felt about him, but then I realized that the stiffness is acting & he\’s able to flow in & out of it well.

    Im Si-wan is top quality in this show.

      He really is. When the characters in the show say speaking to him makes them feel bad, you can really see why. It’s not because he’s mean or say bad things to them. His rhythm is just off from there’s & you can see that with his acting.

Didn\’t expect Lovestruck to be like this. I\’m not sure I\’m a fan, but I commend Netflix for allowing different kinds of dramas to be made. I count Run On towards this to, because of the odd writing.

All the shout outs Memorials/Into The Ring has been getting in the round outs makes me want to re-watch it. Just getting reminded how funny the show was & how good the couple was.

Im enjoying Unfamiliar Family but I\’m starting to think no one would ever have this many misunderstandings for so many years. At some point someone had to say \”hey you remember that one time.\”

    That is the entire issue, noone communicated. Because of their terrible inter family communication skills they had all those misunderstandings in the first place.

    😂 I totally believe it, but, of course, this drama is based on my very own family 😂

      Not mine, really. I thought every family was like mine, talking about everything and learning stories from their grandparents and greatgrandparents and all that stuff (like I knew since I was 7 or 8 that my grandad had been a political prisioner during the Civil War, and that there were quite a few of illegitimate children around and people not getting married and so), only to discover when I was an adult that it seems we were the exception for openly addressing such things…

      My family isn’t the most talkative either, but once the truth about the wedding came out in ep 11 I was like C’MON!!! it wasn’t even a misunderstanding, he just made it up in his head.

    I kept repeating while watching: if only this family have ever talked to each other…
