Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

Also, Woodz jumping on the Lost long hair minitrend wagon – I approve. Not loving the MV concept, but the song sounds great!

    SKJ’s slightly perfunctory birthday Instagram post got over 600.000 likes – over a year away from his last network drama. He’s so talented and popular, why hasn’t he been getting new roles. Why, why, why? Don’t mind my ranting, it’s just that I miss him a lot, sigh

    There’s no coming back.
    Just in case you thought you could get over him.

      He is very handsome, he can rock a TWICE routine, he can play a cutie pie but can be an edgy baddie… WHJ is going places! It took me a while to SEE him – like, really, he was support role in 3 or 4 things I watched without realising it was him. But then I noticed him in 18 Again, had a serious case of SLS, and now I’m all in 😂

    Now I’m wondering (besides how gorgeous can YIA be, and it seems… endlessly?), how did you manage to share the IG link like this?

      He’s gorgeous! About the IG posts, I guess DB-fairies fixed it – I just pasted the link on the video option and, voilà, it worked!

As someone who went through the grinder a couple of times, this scene on episode 3 gave me serious state exams flashbacks (*shivers) 😂 #squid game #too real

Yumi’s cells was a great webtoon. It had all kinds of cute, very funny beats, and moments of insight into relationships and becoming oneself. Now there’s a new webtoon by the same author, yay!

Is it December yet? Someone on Tumblr has been missing Woo Do Hwan as badly as I – they are literally publishing a WDH post in between every other newer drama post. Tumblr creator, fighting! 💚

Omo, omo, omo, just spotted Wi Ja Hoon on this promo! I take it there’s no romance where they can make him Second Lead in this, he! Hope he survives until the end of the Squid Game👏👏

As of now, the tropes pilling up are making me a bit nervous, but the cool world building and the Pretty in this drama are amazing #lovers of the red sky #prettiest drama 2021

    It’s gorgeous and so are they. I’m exercising a willing suspension of disbelief and surfing the enjoyment wave. 😉

      Same here! I’m hoping they’ll stick to the fantastic elements. Pretty Forest Guardian and Green-eyed Ahjussi are intriguing

        His eyes are beautiful. I’m starting to think that seeing things and not seeing them might be a thread running through everything.

          I still don’t understand exactly the mechanic of her eyes becoming his and why exactly would that hinder the devil, but it’s ok, Ha Ram looks stunning. Every time there’s a closeup of his eyes, I have one of those “badump” moments, just like Grand Prince Yangmyung staring at Hong Chunki😋

          2

            So the fantasy logic seems as follows:

            Devil gets its power from his eyes, which he uses to make connect with anyone (living being, painting) to possess, or to curse

            Green goblin seems to be the one who bestows that divine painting skills or selects the painter who can build paintings for the devil.

            Birth god is just trying to stop all the mess and save lives.

            ********************
            1. Ep 1 – They tried to lock the devil, but before they did it, devil cursed the FL’s dad that his child cannot paint.. child loses its eyes
            2. Birth god knows that this locking up is not sustainable, devil is going to break free soon.. and the girl has to be the one to stop him.. but to protect the girl she selects/finds a suitor for her who will be her protector

            3. Ofcourse when devil breaks free, which birth god knew about.. she orchestrated the current situation…

            Locked devil in body of the man who is supposed to be the loyal protector of the painter (FL)

            and this drama clearly is setup for the same old logic with fantasy romance..

            one must die to protect the other..

            at some point it will be clear that, either ML dies to save FL .. or FL dies to extract devil out of ML

            Thanks, @alasecond! So, Devil blinds girl so that she won’t be able to make a painting to trap him (on ep 4 they say that that kind of ability runs in the family), and then Birth God transfers the blindness to boy so that he can’t make eye contact while being a vessel to the demon. Good setup. The bit about one having to die to protect the other sounds likely (because kdrama loves high stakes), but I’d hate to see that. Please, Birth God, free us from Noble Idiocy! 🙇

    totally agreed. I like that it is more fantasy than saguek because I haven’t been able to complete a saguek till date. I just hope they are consistent with the supernatural.

    I am yet to check out D.P. but Koo Kyo Hwan is super eye catching in Ashin despite very limited time there. You can sense this actor has what it takes to be a main character.

      He’s got experience directing and writing. I think that’s part of why his acting is so natural.

        Right, he was in Ashin! He didn’t catch my eye then – but now that I checked, I totally remember him. Everyone in D.P. does a terrific job, but he totally steals every scene he’s in

        2

          I haven’t seen Ashin yet but his directing/writing is mentioned a lot in the DP promo videos. And yep, the DP cast is so good!

          He has no more than 10 lines (or much less) in Ashin and I was thinking they should give him more scenes and lines – without knowing who he is.

D.P. Oh, man, this is bleak, but oh so good! The whole cast is *chef’s kiss 💚 Jung Hae In is great in these dramatic roles, and Koo Kyo Hwan is such a scene stealer! Also, props to baby Jun for graduating from idol to bad boy roles
