Beanie level: Eunuch in drag

Start Up.E8

FINALLY!! 🥳

I actually thought this episode was a bit slow but happy for some breakthroughs!!!

1. The truth about Halmeoni’s vision impairment is out! I am happy DS chose to be honest because we are talking about our dear precious Halmeoni here! We can’t waste time for what-ifs and so I hope and pray the truth about the letters be out VERY SOOON! 😇 (And with that, I sense and pray it to be next week or else they’ll be dragging this out for too long already! 🙈 Comeon writernim! 💁‍♀️)

2. Ji Pyeong is the hero for this episode (again?!)! 😄 Well not only does he rescue our girl in distress (literally!) but thanks to his expertise in this field, who would’ve thought that recording would be needed?!💁‍♀️ It was a nice slap to those Morning group CEO/Chair! Damn, they can’t even practice what they preach!
And yes In Jae, I saw you! 🧐 I saw your smile thinking “Im proud of this little girl” while looking at Dal Mi! A big sister moment!! DM is finally taking baby steps chingus! Fi-na-lly!! 🙈

3. Dalmi! Please! 🙏 Kindly use the AI or the handwriting app our beanies have been suggesting for you to answer your questions!! The truth is actually WAVING at HER the entire episode. 🙋‍♀️ Hahaha. I hope the truth will be out soon so we can finally focus on the start ups, bromance (I am for the samtech/JP ship too!), learn more about sandbox and put our energy rooting for noongil (yes Yong shil! Thanks Yeo Jin Goo, what a vital role you have here!!) to be successful!! I personally think its a brilliant idea! 🥳
But seriously though, I think I have had enough of Emo Do San already. I want to know how DM would react on this now and will allow us AAAALLL to refocus on the other good things this show can offer. 🤧🤔

Ps. That last scene (I mean the very last one 😅) of JP just sums up that he IS a GOOD boy! Haha! I actually he’d do the cocky role for once, just like when he bluffs in 2DN1! 🤣🤣🤣
*goodness! I know this writernim secretly roots for JP 🙈

    If writer roots for JiPyeong, I’d be surprised. Happily surprised, but very surprised.
    I was very happy DoSan told DalMi about halmoni. She deserves to know, specially considering that they live together.
    I’m really sorry about the way DoSan feels. No one should feel like that. The problem is that I don’t care because ML DoSan is being mean to JiPyeong and even to DalMi.

      Haha! Do San is poorly written eh? I am so confused with him 🙈

Start Up.E7

SHE IS THE MIRACLE! (You sillyboy! Me to Do San 😂)

Halmeoni just proves to be the heart of this show!! I was mad at Do San for being cocky infront of Ji Pyeong but was glad that he’d realized how indebted is JP to this great person! 🥰 Aww, my heart!

Twas funny seeing DS and JP had it for Dal Mi’s attention. Funny and sad for JP to realize his feelings for DM. (My JiPyeong squad where you aaat!! 🙆🏻‍♀️)

The symbolism for that plant was great! And thanks to Moon Se Yoon for visiting us in this show! Them bickering just shouts 2D1N feels! (JP asking for the nth time for the exact instructions from Se Yoon just drives home! Hahaha 🥳)

In Jae. Well, she drove some point in there. Why do people keep bashing her for using her “family” when all she does is working hard. But WHY is she hard working is a good question. Is it for money or is she just insecure that she loves proving other people around her? Her character is actually well written compared to DM, I am waiting for her to grow up still.🤷🏻‍♀️

And thanks to Halmeoni, we get to hear DM answer to the most important question, who she likes better: the letterDo San or the present Do San? 🤔

The kiss scene was shot beautifully! But please don’t hate me when I say, it was a little out of nowhere? 🤐Haha. The buildup was a little, wait, there was no build up is it? Anyway, I am still rooting for DS/DM! 🙆🏻‍♀️

Ps. Ji Pyeong, hang in there! In the Philippines we say, stay as PLANTITO!! (Someone who really, really loves plants! 🙈😅) AAAAAND I love that Yongshil has tight shots even!! 🙈🙈🙈

    I agree with you on everything, specially about InJae. I really hate how DalMi always assumes the worst of her, lies to her and is so mean to her.
    According to that conversation between InJae and her stepdad and the anecdote with their dog, it’s pretty sure InJae was grew up being the perfect daughter, always pleasing her stepdad because he is a bad person who likes to use his power to despise others: he did it with the dog, with DalMi and DoSan in their office, to InJae when he appointed his son as CEO instead of his capable stepdaughter, or the way he uses his wife as a thing. So InJae grew up in that environment and that’s probably the reason she’s that cold and perfectionist. But she’s a good boss and a warm person too, because if not those employees wouldn’t have followed her and the twins wouldn’t have stayed (as the SamSan boys predicted). I just don’t understand why the show is making this awesome and with so much potential character just the evil sister. I just can’t understand she’s just used as a filler.

    And regarding the kiss, you are also right, beautifully shot, but… well… yes… I was like: oh, look, they are kissing… nice colours… do I care? No, I don’t care at all.

        Just watch it, I’m sure you’ll enjoy. I mean, I’ve been having this sensation from the very beginning of the show. I just couldn’t ship DoSan and DalMi from the very beginning (and I’m here because I simple ADORE Nam Joo Hyuk).

      Right?! Why are they hating In Jae when she is working so hard sans the Sandboxgirl. That girl went through as much as Dal Mi so why the hate 🤷🏻‍♀️
      And DM is being so childish everytime she meets her big sis, like wth 🤦🏻‍♀️

      And LMAO. There was no spark or whatever in that kiss. 🙈 Why is that? 🤭 Hahaha

      I found the kiss weird. The buildup wasn’t there. A hug would have been much more effective.

    I agree with everything they said except that the fluff or fan service in last episode should be 30 mins long. 😂 I think 5 to max 15 minutes of that is more than enough, it actually ruins the show if the final episode doesn’t have much of the story because as they said everyone’s anticipating it the most, so we do need lots of stuff. I especially like how it was done in My Ajusshi and Seven Day Queen.

      Agree! A good narrative as a whole is the best fanservice, for me! Hahaha. And yes, ending for those 2 shows are good!

OMG! Things are picking up so quickly and I love it! All are making sense now! So glad I didn\’t give up on this show! 🙈

Capt Song — not as smart as I thought he is. 🧐
Lt Lee — aww, I was rooting for your perceptions and views but you just have to do that. The things you do for family 🤧
Sgt Yong — yaaa! I am this close of thinking you might die any moment, be careful! Please!
Ms Kim — please join the squad, ASAP!

Cant wait for Saturday!

    I think Lt. Lee kept the tape. I mean, he destroyed the camcorder, that’s for sure, but those things in 1997 had tapes (I don’t think they used cards by then). So he has the proof, and there are two reasons I trust him: he’s always been genuinely worried about the safety and wellbeing of the other members of the team, and he’s not totally comfortable with his father.
    When we saw the flashback of him and his dad, you could see his face of resignation when his father told him one day he would be the general he never could be. I’m pretty sure Lt. Lee is happy to be in the Army, but he didn’t like the greed look in his father’s eyes. And then, when he found out what happened, he was really disgusted. I’m trusting him. I have to.
    Same goes to Cap. Song. He’s doing his task because he knows he’ll be expelled from the Army if not. He’s always been protective about his team in the past (Sg. Joo’s devotion says it all), and now he’s figuring out that whatever happened in the past may be related to what’s happening now.
    That’s why I want them to overpass their differences and team up to uncover the truth. I do hope Sg. Yong is the one who can make them do it.

    1

      I am secretly hoping Lt Lee kept SOMETHING from the camcorder or maybe Sg Yong did! I just want the truth to be revealed! Because maybe, just maybe, Sg Yong’s dad was that Captain who was killed by Lt Lee?? Omoo, I am so thrilled!
      And yes! Capt Song, I have faith in him since we know as viewers that not only does he follow orders but wanted to determine the bigger picture of this issue! Aww. But I am just rooting for this team!

      1
      1

        Oh, I’m pretty sure Sg. Young’s dad is the captain that was killed. The survivors said he defected to the North and that’s why he never learned anything about him.

Noooo! Don\’t take Halmoni away just yeeet, show! 🙏

I am glad that DM is pretty stepping up her game! Its about time to make things work! JP is the best mentor and hyung ever!🥳🤣 I am happy that he gives sincere and objective advice to these novices. The issue on the shares seemed over the top but hey, happens IRL right? It was funny on how they wrapped it up in their goofy way!! 🤣

I was actually disappointed with IJ using the father/sandbox thingy for her to get things she wanted. She really had this overbearing character, just like their mom. Urgh 🤦‍♀️

On the other hand, we have a much dangerous(?) Person on the loose eh? Im thinking its JP assistant? Haha. Anyway, I am much intrigued on how the truth will be revealed about the letters though? I want it out, Soon!! Because they maybe right that later, it\’ll be the cause of their downfall (aka bug)! Whew, how to wait for a week!!

Ps. I WANT A JONGSHIL IN MY LIFE RN!! 🤗☺🙏

Wow! I am on a high with Samsan tech!! They deserve it!!

A lot had happened. And a lot about Dal Mi. My question on her educational attainment was answered. It pains me to see Halmoni crying! 😭 This “Mother” deserve to know the truth on how Dal Mi had to go through, well thanks to her! 🤬

I Love how metaphors were used in explaining the technological stuff (sorry, no techy here!) and about life (eg. the need for the rain in life, not just the sunshine makes sense!) This episode showed how insightful Do San is and not to mention how territorial he is (well that is HIS candy, no?🤔) and the dynamic between our threeSANS, Amaaaazing!

Aww, And poor Jin Pyeong, falling deeper in SLS; I hear my heart and yours breaking every time you were reminded of the past and all “what ifs”, this man deserves a lot more love! 😘

For a moment, I thought Dal Mi had it all figured out at the last moment! More characters are being added to this already brewing feist(?, haha) and I can’t wait to know more about them 🧐

    another nice touch is, as of now, the drama is not making a character jerk just to make or show another character in better limelight..

    ML is not a jerk to make Second male lead look nice. Sis is not really a vamp trying to show how goody two shoe FL is. The other coders… they heard the idea, but we see they are good at what they do and with same source material they came up with 2 different good ideas..

    I hope drama stays that way.. we don’t need unnecessary evil people..

    in that capacity, i even acknowledge in jae’s stepfather’s behavior. That is very real. he would but ofcourse promote his own son.. nothing wrong there, rather nothing non real there

      Even if they had “taken” Dal-mi’s idea (can you really steal ideas? I’m dubious), in real life competition occurs where people develop the same kind of product and the product that does a better job wins. This isn’t unethical; to the contrary, this competition is what drives the development of better products and lowers prices.

      1

        corporate espionage is unethical and illegal
        stealing ideas is illegal and hence IP laws and plagiarism

        The case can be filed. Facebook was also sued right because the whole dating site idea was actually someone else’s idea. Samsung was sued for just rounding off the corners of the phone

    but clearly that one trope we are going to see..

    In Jae did quote dad in her email..because she heard the convo between dad and dal mi about sand..

    But ultimately, the one who really came up with that philosophical statement was dalmi and hence the originator of sandbox..

    AND, i would say.. second male lead got his break from sandbox too.. so all the more reason for him to fall for dalmi..

    ****************
    Just make hana and stephanie lee best friends without any love interests.. i’d be very happy seeing these 4 ladies rocking everything (IJ as the CEO, dalmi as CMO, Stephanie as the main designer.. and the female blonde MIT coder 😀 .. and let the boys he head of dept doing their own thing 🙂 .. with SH sipping coffee with grandmom and basically being a boradmember 😛 )

    1

      Me too! Secretly rooting for SH to be the goodyDaddyLongLegs of our two leads, I hope he not fall for Dalmi that hard, I was actually allowing myself to accept that SH would adore Dalmi as his sibling because he loves Halmoni that much!! I hope that Alex is the real antagonist and our boys and girls would hand in hand be against him (I smell evil plans, hahaha)

      0
      1

        yea..

        even i think alex would steal idea or something..

        And on SH, that would be awesome if he could think of dalmi as his sis in law or sis 🙂

        ***************
        On the letters,

        those letters were co-written by grandmom and him. Therefore, in that sense, i think there is a reason why those letters managed to strike a cord with Dalmi (at some level the content has her grandmom’s touch)

And admittedly. I.LOVE.IT!!! 🤩🤩🤩

A promising show as my junior promised me! 🤣 Haha. And seen some beanies raving on it weeks ago! 🥳

The family issue is a little messed up in the beginning but had to stay for Kim Seon Ho! Jin Pyeong is a little bit the same as Seon Ho in 2DN1 character and I am all about it! 😝

Its been a while seeing the rest of the gang in dramas and I can\’t wait to know what\’s coming!! 🤗

What a way to start Monday! Haha. Thought of catching up with Search. I find it funny that I found myself screaming most of Episode 3. I dunno if its the coffee that made me jumpy but hey! It finally picked it pace huh. 😅
Yoon Park exudes a negative aura in here. Why is he good in these kind of roles. Haha. I miss his sweet role in Age of Youth! 🙊
That scene where Krystal came out of nowhere helping Dong Yoon was cool! I love badass (in a good, cool way) female lead!! Now I am off to some house chores, let’s enjoy the week beanies!
Ps. The last scene where Dong Yoon singing was so cute!! 🥰

I LOVE YOU BRAHMS! 😘🤩🤗

Haha! I don’t know how many times I cried this episode. BUT FOR ONCE, no MEANIES! Finally, Thank you writer! 😅

Basically, it IS the LOVE STORY of JOONYOUNG and SONGAH. We’ve been through their ups and downs, especially the downs I must say (HELLO BRAHMSIES). 😉
We’ve questioned the hardships of this OTP, most especially the pain, was it worth it?

This episode walked us through how winning back love isn’t easy and isn’t applicable to all. I am actually happy that Hyun Ho and Jung Kyung didn’t end up together, as well as Dong Yoon and Min Jae staying as friends. Some pain is just too much. Well for JY and SA? It may sound like a fairy tale, or cliche, but I’d say that they are meant to be (and IRL? Ottoke 🙈)! 🤗

How they dealt with the separation — respecting each other’s decision, the willingness to wait and see (no pressure at all!) was well, an adult thing to watch and see. I appreciated that THERE ARE people around them rooting for this OTP too and played cupids (JUST FOR THIS EPISODE 😝) and I think this has lead to the beautiful reunion, OMO THAT KISS!! 🤩🤩🤩 I felt the LONGING, the LOVE, THE HARDSHIP WAS WORTH IT, FINALLY!! (I WAS THE PIANO THERE IN THE ROOM, REALLY! 🙈)

The scenes that follow showed us the much happier OTP. Us brahmsies predicted and rooted for Song Ah to be by Joon Young’s side, be it a managerial or anything, just be by his side! And thank goodness, she realized it too! Maybe it was unnecessary to be a long 16 episodes but I am still grateful I stayed and enjoyed the ride! Till then my sweet dimple OTP — I will miss you! Stay in LOVE and have babies! Hahaha!

    You must be on cloud 9 right now because it was episode 16! LOL I thought…wait I don’t remember @hazelnuts being behind. I totally get it though. I’ve been on such a Brahms high since I saw the clips this morning, I can’t imagine how I’ll be when I watch the episode. Curse you adult life responsibilities!

    I’ve loved your reactions for every episode though. ❤ Completely agree with your take on their separation. I love love love that it wasn’t noble idiocy. It actually flowed perfectly with our characters and their trajectory.

    But I’ll shut up now so I can finish prepping my lunch for tomorrow and I can actually sit and watch the episode.

      Awww! I am so happy to be on this journey with you @yongsital and the rest of the beanies! It was so fun, discussing even the little things about the show made me realize how I really, really love kdramas (AND I MEAN IT 🙈) Its really a blessing that I am on a break right now (though jobless atm lol, waiting for deployment! 🙈) and yes, the last episode was so overwhelming! I will be able to move on thinking that somewhere in the classy world, they are happy! Lets be happy! 🤗🤗🤗

        It really was such a joy being part of the Brahms community! And I just watched the episode and I can’t believe how a show can make me feel so happy!!! How can these fictional characters make me smile so much? Song Ah’s final narration was brilliant and I think the theme of the entire drama. 🥰 Every now and then I come across kdramas, like Brahms, that remind me why I like them. Now I can sleep content lol.

The subs are out and finally get to watch this episode! Its a really long one compared to the previous clips from the staff of Hospital Playlist. Again (and I will keep on repeating this), this clip just proves how thoughtful and thorough is the staff in casting people in their dramas. 🤗
Special shoutout to Aunt Wang!! I can’t believe she’s been in theater for 40 years and muster her courage to venture more for her dreams, at her age! I am gushing how modest she is (and all the other actors as well) during the audition. I am thankful to HP for showing us these kind of BTS scenes! I teared up at the credits in the end, well-deserved tribute to the supporting actors that made the whole show the best one! Now I can’t wait for season2! 🙈

OMG! WHAT ENDING WAS THAT?!

For an hour, I sighed, was teary-eyed, got mad and cheered. I felt tired. 🤭 Haha!

It is the 15th episode, a 2nd to the last one and the supporting characters thought of being “supportive” just now! I hate Hae Na and Jung Kyung!

Hae Na for being even brave to tell Song Ah not to quit violin because of her, what a lame excuse! What, hypocrite! Jung Kyung, again and again, keep examining her feelings for Joon Young and realizes, JUST NOW, that he consoled her everytime and now, she felt bad because he doesn’t anymore. What are you, a child?? 😟🤧
So. What will she do about it? Does breaking up our OTP made her happy? Come on, girl!! 🤯

Ps. Representative Park being pushed by Noona, he just deserves it! Shameless fool for even thinking he can just go back to Kyunghoo after betraying people 💁‍♀️

Last episode, I mentioned not seeing Director Nah ever doesn’t mean I wished her to pass away. Poor Dad! I felt bad for him! Although looking back, the Writer planned it though. Grandma kept having health issues from the start that it happened naturally. 🤔

Now, now. Our OTP. It was painful experiencing the aftermaths of the break up. And in this time. Both thought of quitting music. 😭
Joon Young crying broke my heart. 💔 I have to mention Mom, on why does she need to say that JY doesn’t express himself more (so she doesn’t expect anything he’d share, wasn’t said out loud but it goes out like that!). I am personally offended because you don’t do that to your child 🤦‍♀️
As someone who specializes on young people, one should be supportive and willing to listen to children esp to timid ones or else they’d grow up thinking their opinions doesn’t matter.

Anyway. Things got out of hand when Joon Young offered to play for Song Ah’s recital, a Brahms piece! I love how the writer portrayed the true-to-life story of musicians Brahms-Schumann-Clara at this point! And that piece, and scene was so beautiful! I felt the sincerity and happiness of them playing. The way they held hands at the end of the recital made me squeeee!!

And Joon Young! Finally expressed himself. There. With the piano (I secretly cheered for a kissing scene!! Cuz you know🤭) And of course we will (yet) get to know Song Ah’s answer tonight because the cuts to SA loving the first snow!!! Whaaaa! See you later show! Albeit the finale, I can feel it will be a happy one! 🙈

Ps. JoonYoungie! Don’t let go of SA! And that brown handkerchief!! 😉😁

    This happened to me too when I first saw Dong-yoon, but it was with the film Be With You starring So Ji-sub and Son Ye-jin, where he played the young version of So Ji-sub’s character.
