Beanie level: Errand boy

So here for Park Sunghoon rocking his long(ish) hair and being rotten to the core #Joseon Exorcist https://www.soompi.com/article/1459728wpp/joseon-exorcist-cast-and-director-talk-about-what-sets-them-apart-from-other-zombie-dramas-like-kingdom

    I like it when villain is done right. Give me a villain who is 100% committed to his evil dongs

      He was a great villain in The Psychopath Diary! Dude got me having conflicted feelings, with him being a scary unhinged psychopath, but oh so handsome, and his chemistry with YSY was just amazing 😂
      Also saw some good comments about Justice, I think he was a baddie in that one too

    And I just realized that he’s in Mad Dog. Is he a Baddie in that one too?

Kim Dami and Choi Wooshik in a drama? I\’m in! They were so great together in The Witch https://www.soompi.com/article/1459622wpp/choi-woo-shik-and-kim-da-mi-to-reunite-in-new-romantic-comedy-drama

    Also, the synergy between webtoons and dramas is really clever and they are taking it to the next level in SK. This drama is getting a webtoon prequel AT THE SAME TIME the drama is being released. Talk about multi-platform content

      Yes. I find this part intriguing as well.

      Studio N had two successful dramas on their own. So looking forward to their future projects. Wishing them all the best

Is it just me, or Romance is a bonus book features Dramaland\’s most insane raincoat? Like, I really like most of the outfits in this, but LJS sporting that pink camouflage cracks me up

    Oh my gosh, that raincoat!! I still remember it!

      It is bonkers 🤣 Crazy Raincoat shows up earlier in the drama, when Eunhoo is getting dressed for their first date and says “is this too much?” and it’s really funny because it totally is. I thought they brought it in just for laughs, but then in the last episode they bring it back for real, and I was loling at the insanity of that item and didn’t have anyone around to share this with. So happy that you remember it, korfan!

      Ay, I love him to bits! Warm smile, hazel eyes, the features of a greek god (Eazal’s ™ 😉), on top of that, he’s a soft boy who loves his cats… And he can act his heart off.
      Wish him a happy and long career, he’ll definitely grown from being a beautiful face into a great mature actor

        Korean Greek God.
        Remember that Greek God is LDW.
        I love him so, so much. I’m so happy he’s in a drama before his enlistment.
        We three have commented so many times how much we miss him!!!
        Uri SKJ *sends finger hearts*

Just saw The Uncanny Counter webcomic popping up on Tapas and thought someone might be interested! First episodes are free, then it looks like there’s a paywall

    Space Sweepers and Itaewon Class are also on Tapas. True Beauty and Sweet Home on Webtoon

And while I was checking out JE on wikidrama I came across these old photos of Park Sunghoon and I was peeing myself. Look at this cute puppy! This is pure noughties’ gold 😂💚💚

Dang, almost forgot about this, but it’s going to be out there in march! Jang Dongyoon and Park Sunghoon slaying zombies in Joseon, yeah!

    As he was recently in OCN’s ten episode drama SEARCH (Viki US) Jang Dong-yoon will be terrific in SBS’s JOSEON EXORCIST. He looks great. Hopefully JE will soon be on Viki’s “Coming Soon” list.
    What concerns me and something I am not really looking forward to is having to deal with two M/T sageuks overlapping for 12 episodes/6 weeks. From March 15 to April 20 RIVER WHERE THE MOON RISES (Viki US) and JOSEON EXORCIST will be airing simultaneously.
    I recall that in 2019 two sageuks THE CROWNED CLOWN and HAECHI both M/T dramas overlapped for 7 episodes and for me it was a chore trying to follow both.

      I feel you! Anyway, if Viki airs both of them in my region I’ll be a happy bean – there’s so much stuff I’ve been watching after airing because Netflix in my region hates kdrama fans

    Two zombie dramas in a row for JDY >.> Well, at least this one has PSH.

    I will say I’m a bit tepid about this one overall. Can it outdo Kingdom? Probably not. Why try for another zombie sageuk so soon after Kingdom, then?

      You have a point. My simple mind just got as far as “two pretty dudes in pretty joseon garb fighting zombies with swords”. Let’s hope for a fresh twist to a used formula, if not, at least we can count on pretty dudes in pretty joseon garb, that might be enough to keep me watching 😋

      1

        Pretty dudes in Joseon garb will still make me watch. I might gripe and grouse, but I wont say no to eye candy!

Interview with Yoo Ahin, my Overthinking King. Happy that he’s looking after his health, and looking forward for Hellbound https://www.soompi.com/article/1452235wpp/yoo-ah-in-talks-about-what-led-him-to-quit-smoking-how-he-is-evolving-as-an-artist-and-more

      Me too! Been looking out for Voice of Silence, his last movie, but still haven’t been able to locate it online (and where I live there’s 0 chances it gets shown at cinemas)

    I’m watching right now Secret Affair, and while I don’t like loves stories with this age gap and even less when it’s a teacher-student relation… what can I say? I have not very decent feelings when I’m watching. Not a little bit.

      I know, I know (*fans self)… When I watched I had to go and check YAH’s real age at the time to make sure he wasn’t as young as the character. That pairing is problematic as heck, but I loved SA to bits (and all the music, so pretty!) 😚

        I admit I also did the checking and was actually relieved when I knew he was 28 😅

Turned to Viki after a busy week, and no new True Beauty or Mr Queen episodes… WTH, Viki?

    You just have to click on the 11-13 beside 1-10 number you find on the episodes banner on the drama page. I hope this is helpful. Have seen other also getting confused by this. 🙂

Only got to listen to the Year-End Yak now and it\’s so good! Goguma awards give recognition to what REALLY matters (\”Biggest Waste of Everything\”, \”Racist Drama most vigorously defended\”, \”Ahjussi of the year\”, pffff, I was loling with my headphones like a crazy lady), and listening to some Beanies\’ voices – besides the always funny and witty Saya, Paroma and Anisa – is cool and heart-warming. Yes, Drama-Community is precious 💚
Also, there\’s an acrostic poem for Woo Dohwan (see, Puppy, Yakers love you too!). Adorbs 🤗
So, Beanies, here\’s the rec – go and listen to it!

So, Start Up. Found the love triangle – was there really one? -a bit meh, but drama was fun and chirpy until ep 12, so there’s that!
Loved the Samsan gang and almoni and Jipyeong were 💗
Been sharing my life with a programer for almost 20 years now and got to see all sorts of cool projects, so I’m totally into the fascination this drama feels about programers – they ARE cool (coding is hot, he!) It’s like magic watching them work, and I think drama captured that well, although in glamourous (and superfast 🤣… like, ok, drama, Nam Dosan is a supergenius, whatever 🙄) k-drama style, of course.
About the Do-Pyeong-Gate,I totally get it why Beanieland went crazy about Kim JiPyeong and Nam Dosan, both are great guys. My heart goes for derpy cinnamon roll, but I get you too, tsundere-loving-Beanies, I do…
Also, props for the great OST! The whole album goes into a new playlist for me. 10CM, I missed you 💚

    See? It was worth it.
    It’s a very nice drama and I would have probably loved it much more if I didn’t live watch it.
    For me, it was ruined after episode 9 and I just watched because it’s really well done, but not because I really liked it. I feel quite indifferent, tbh.
    Both NJH and KSH nail their roles, but I have a very big complaint about all female characters.

    2
    2

      Yes, I’m glad I watched it because it’s pretty and fun!
      Expectations are key: when I get all fired up and then drama flops I get all bitter 😂 So I need to thank you, Eazal, for setting my expectations adequately for what this drama really is: a fairly run of the mill but well crafted romcom.

      Knowing that beforehand really helps… I just enjoyed the ride (and to be totally honest, NJH’s pretty prettiness and KSH’s rare but pretty smile very much enhanced the experience 😉)

      But yes, they made Dalmi a total Candy… She could have been so much more interesting, and also the sibling relationship fell a bit flat when drama had everything to explore it more

Kim Sungcheul is a Baddie in Sweet Home and I had no idea! Shrieked when he popped up, he’s deliciously evil (can’t screengrab on NT, so just borrowing this)

    He has been building up his portfolio with pretty solid supporting roles and I just want him as a lead now

    I enjoyed his character in Sweet Home. I didn’t remember that he was in Prison Playbook but I enjoyed his character in that drama as well.

    He played a very convincing despicable baddie in The Player that freaked me out bad because I was fresh from To.Jenny; he’s acting range is fantastic.

    At first I thought: hey, this is a good guy who needs to survive and is with the baddies because he’s intelligent, and he’ll realize he can join the goodies in Green House, only to realize he was the very worst baddie and the creepiest.

It’s limited to Netflix dramas, but categories are fun – “most complicated double life”, “prettiest crier”, “worts family”, pffff

      Yes, they are the very awesome Javabeans and girlfriday. There’s still loads of drama reviews by them here on DB, and they carried on their brand of humor and love for dramas to The Swoon too. I admire them both a lot 💚
