Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

DDSSLLS – Just finished all the available episodes including Ep 8. I really like it and there’s something very pure and sweet about it. It’s a fine balance that’s difficult to achieve. More below.

    In the hands of a less skilled director or actors, it will be cringe-worthy but it’s just RIGHT here.

    Does the ‘age’ thing bothering? Not for me and this issue has been set up from Ep 1 as the main conflict – with Jun’s half a second hesitation when saying to Ra-ra he’s 24 too. He’s however such a mature person that the mere 4 or 5 years difference will become nothing over time.

    Go Ara may not be the best actress out there but she’s absolutely lovely here that you can’t help but root for her. What can I say about Lee Jae-wook? He injects credibility into every role he plays and he might grow to be the best actor of his generation.

    We are now at the half way point and as a viewer, I just wish it doesn’t falter in the second half because it has been sweetly winning so far in everything.

    Personally, I find the age thing disturbing, but knowing that the show receives much love from other Beanies makes me feel glad. The show is lovely, never cringe-worthy and very refreshing. It makes me feel like reliving the olden days again when there seemed to be no evil in the world and everyone loved one another.

    Poor dr.Cha, I was literally heartbroken for him being turned down that fast. 😢

    The show is also successful in the sense that it made me listen to instrumental pieces now. I am always amazed by how well the actors playing Ra-ra, dr.Cha and Jae-min play piano. They look like they are great at playing piano in real life!

#FoS S2 Finale
It’s a heavy watch as my heart hurts and sinks – but great to see some nice human touches. Most importantly, the gauntlet has been laid for a S3!

I just rewatched Ep 10-12 of FoS2 and got the reward of noting the seeds planted here and there about what’s to happen in Ep 14 (and 15 too, I think).

    The significance is not about the lighter but what is WTH doing in that scene. He is visiting the place where SDJ was kidnapped, checking out the blood stain – and the surround of that neighbourhood. And with a faint smile. This might just be the only scene in the whole drama when he is ‘in the field’. You’ve got to ask why.

    Then when the fake witness got round up by HYJ and her cop crew after they broke his lie – he made some vague remarks to HSM, not dissimilar to the final scene of Ep 14.

    This drama is made for rewatch.

      Sorry, I chopped out the first sentence of the above post which reads “Much has been said about WTH’s green lighter”.

      Yes, the fake witness obviously thought all of the prosecution was on the same page.

      Sad that it’ll be ending next week but it’ll be an interesting rewatch pointing out clues.

#FoS2 Ep14
I can’t breathe through out the whole episode. Not expecting the puzzle within puzzle. The wait for the final episodes will be excruciating.

#OhMyBaby Ep 14

Despite knowing the premise of this story from day one, nothing prepares me for the ending of Ep 14. I am totally gutted and I have no superlative for Jang Nara’s delivery there.

Two questions please for Hospital Playlist fans – is the June 4 Special available through Netflix? Just had a look at Netflix and no indication there.

And the YT address for the band performance?

    I think this is the YT channel where the special episode will be aired. I don’t remember where I read it but I had that YT page open.
