Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

Almost a day since 2521 finale & i still haven’t recovered from the shock. And the confusion.
And i thought i was prepared for it.

2521

Not on Bona hate bus!!!

That being said, YR staph it. Like we get you, but stop being so mean to HD(& not just because HD is the fl). You\’re lashing out on the only person you can (plus the pool which is not a person, also, pretty sad scene) while being bullied by all the adults.
I couldn\’t dislike her too much after ep8 but srsly, pls stop being mean. Esp since we get to see your not-mean side when you\’re with non-HD.

If YR is a child (professional national level gold medal athlete) who couldn\’t control her emotions/rage literally anywhere near HD every single time, let\’s not forget that every single person told HD to stop fencing (except dead dad; YJ & coach came later into the picture) & she had no one to lean on & had to fight to get where she wanted to. That\’s a different kind of burden to bear but it was a heavy burden all the same. Usually someone would crumble over if the world kept telling them they suck at something & should just give up.
Wish YR would stop seeing her as a threat & as a rival instead.

Drama is bent on pitching them badly against each other but let\’s have a better reason plz this is so stupid.
Also media sucks.

Side note:
HD-YJ interaction had been wholesome so far but 2nd half of ep8 was cringey for poor HD. But with that determined line at the end, I\’m pretty sure she\’ll bulldoze her way into YJ\’s heart haha.

Mom & HD are still not on the same page even when there\’s a teen granddaughter in the fam now. 🤦 Let\’s communicate people!

Again
Not on Bona hate bus!!!
That\’d be even more stupid than YR\’s actions in the drama so far.

Our Beloved Summer
What I liked about the drama that kept me watching till now: ✨
The vibe & aesthetic has been lovely so far, the color tones, the setting, the cinematography were pretty. The music is overall nice too. So it was a visual treat.
The friendship between Ung & Ji-ung. It’s nice πŸ™‚
What has irked me enough to vent out here on db after ages:
First of all, the absolute lack of communication between the leads till abt ep 9(?) had been super frustrating.
Didn’t care abt YS ever but wow she just shut up like a clam, & Ung was so vague abt everything! This is romanticized in dramas but tbh things never ever work out on their own without communication.
i just liked to see Ung work in his studio & was hoping those 2 would actually talk about stuff that matters & i didn’t care abt them getting back together, i mean either way it was fine BUT that was nothing compared to what happened in the latest eps like why did even Ung need to have a sob backstory?????? That ep just left me??????? 🤨🤨🤨
I mean isn’t this trope getting too old after getting reused so many times. Like every set of drama parents who are nice are adopted, & only the awful drama parents are the real ones.😒
I don’t….feel pity for those characters anymore. Seen it even more than Love triangles & TOD put together. 😐
Not trying to be insentive but Ung’s story didn’t have to be so pitiful, i was rooting for his choice of life even without the sob backstory thrown on my face so late into the show, it was absolutely unnecessary because yes a person can wish to have a laid back life, be reserved or feel lonely at times without a childhood trauma.
So now what, we root for the OTP to be together because their uhh…sad stories make them a couple????🤦

Is this a Melo? Did I miss it somewhere? I had cried through Bach drama, sniffed sometimes through Weather drama but man it makes no sense in this drama. This setting is really getting old. You know what would be fresh, the characters having *not* a sob backstory but still have enough depth to make audience invested in them.🙇

Also the pretty music & setting will make it seem like it but taking so long to resolve things between them despite the apparent never faded love in their hearts is romantic only on paper not in reality. (Plus they haven’t yet talked abt the last break up which was so bad, also ohmy, did YS dump him without explaining even tho she knew abt his son story by then???? Ohmy ohmy i agree with Sol-i unni, they’re a mess )🤷

Also why….did Ji Ung like YS? Love at first sight? Just like that?????????? They never even got that close until the current timeline. Was this setting necessary? What is this, Twelfth Night? Why are the drama universes so small where everyone has to has a crush on someone. Why are love triangles/squares/pentagons still not ditched out of writings.😑

And will i keep watching after venting out so much here? Yes ofc, since I’m already past the halfway mark, might as well finish it. Can’t believe my frustration led to me rambling here. I didn’t even make happy posts when I was enjoying Run On last yr…
😌

To all the writers of this drama

    👍🏼 Yep, right there with you! 🤦🏼‍♀️

    Sol-I has become my favorite character in this show, she’s the only one with a good head on her shoulders, including grandma.

    I feel you. I’m rewatching Cunning Single Lady and they have a similar synopsis (used to date/were married, had an awful break up, they meet again -the dude is now famous- and they start to work together), but man, there was more communication and stuff happening in 5 episodes of CSL than 10 of Our Beloved Summer.
    I really don’t know how am I supposed to buy their love story if there isn’t one.

    Haha so true – I wish drama writers would realise characters don’t need a tragic backstory and they don’t need a childhood/ fated connection either! Normal people falling in love can be entertaining – there are plenty of potential pitfalls between two normal, different people!!

14Feb will be over in my timezone in approx 1hr. Over the past few years I haven’t been able to come much on db due to rl situations & just being exhausted in general.
I just happened to come back heteta few days ago & lo & behold! The wall is filled with posts 🙂

I’ll be honest I have nothing nice or sweet to share. Rl is stressing me out or I’m beginning to suspect that I’m a person who just stresses out a lot in general haha.

Anyway I’m off to sleep with some dramatic lines & a thank you note:

“After secretly collecting words that wander around in the void, I fall asleep at dawn, good night”
(Referring to my occasional insomnia, btw I either knock out dead or just stay awake like an 🦉, there’s no in between)

To @hotcocoagirl , you’re awesome for bringing this idea to db.❤️

To every beanie continuing the tradition every year, your awesome too👍👍👍✨❤️❤️❤️

Thank you & lots of love to everyone.

LOVE,
FEBRUARY….
AND ALWAYS💕
XOXOXO
