Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

I know everyone’s indulging in IOTNBO’s final eps but I just have to share my appreciation for FoS. Hwang Shimok and Han Yeojin is the duo I never knew I needed and I love their moments – definitely my favorite parts of each episode and plus, just look at that smile!! I’m melting 😍 Their friendship is just perfect and I’m 100% here for it.

I just reached the halfway mark and everything about the drama is done so well. The casting, plot, characters, everything about everyone is nuanced and I’m very invested. I absolutely love what the writers/directors/crew did for the characters. There are layers upon layers characterizing everyone. Even the supporting character with minimal screentime is given at least a little bit in regards to their motivations and I truly appreciate it. I think that’s what makes this drama so hyped up and I wholeheartedly agree.

    I’m sooo happy I have season 2 of FoS to look forward to after the ending of IOTNBO. Which reminds me, I seriously need to rewatch the first season. Seeing HSM and HYJ smiling together is all I need in this world. Can’t wait to see them working together again next week and hopefully going out to eat as well <3

      Yesss! Their going-out-to-eat scenes are iconic and I wouldn’t mind several more of those πŸ˜›

    I rewatched this show just last week with SO much excitement! It was like it was brand new and I just gobbled it up and loved it!
    Shimok and Han Yeojin are sooo so very precious as a duo!
    I can’t wait for next weekend!

        Oh I watched S1 when it aired, so the wait was looooong!
        I pray pray praaaaay they make it worthwhile. Drama gods, we have waited so long, please let this be good! Please!

          Honestly!! The hype is carrying from the first to the second so I can only imagine how many people are going to be hurt by S2 not living up to the expectations and the stress the S2 cast is experiencing from trying to create an exceptional S2 (it’s impossible to not have expectations though 😬)

This is sort of a random thought that I’m having just before sleeping haha and I’m not sure when the last time something like this was done (if it was recent, please let me know because I really don’t want to be redundant), but I’m curious in looking at the demographics of DB whether it be by age or location or gender or anything really. Does this seem like something you’d be interested in?

I just finished Psychopath Diary and I don’t know how they did it, but they really pulled off a thriller-comedy and I loved it. YSY was hilarious and the switches between his personalities were amazing LOL Though, I think I now need to watch Memorials to see PSH in a non-serial killer role…

    I’ve been reading good things about this. Tempted to pick it up!

      You should definitely give it a try!! The first couple episodes are very interesting because of the unnatural thriller-comedy combo and it took me several eps to get used to it, but once I did I thoroughly enjoyed it!

        Although a MLFAS level steamy shower scene might be a good contender to top THAT SCENE. But with Gang Tae’s situation, the boy can’t afford a Do Min level luxurious glassed shower space let alone the hot shower.

        2
        1

          That shower scene is on a whoollee other level, nothing can match it. However, if KSH really does another scene like that, I might reconsider that fact lol

        I always detested sagaeuks until Do Kyungsoo started in 100 days my prince. I watched it loved the whole historical thingy. Since then I have watched two others, rookie and Moon embracing sun. I LOVED THE LATTER! maybe I’ll watch QSD too.

      I keep on getting low numbers on my page but then high numbers on theirs, like in your case! But, those three are incredible dramas! I guess mine was just rom-com heavy LOL

        Since we’ve all watched more dramas than on our list it makes sense the overlap varies depending on what we consider a favourite vs what we enjoyed from someone else’s picks. To be fair though I am quite picky when it comes to romcoms. I usually end up losing interest somewhere in the second half.

        1
        1

          Makes sense! They do tend to drag after it’s already been established that they’ll end up together and then it just feels like a random mess of obstacles that the writer just wants to include. But, I guess, I enjoy all the cutesy moments lol

    I really liked her look when her character was introduced in the first episode, when she was eating steak. But my absolute favorite has been her bohemian look from eps 4 to 5. That white Zimmermann dress looked so divine her. The side braid was a nice touch.

      That first scene was gorgeousss~ Unfortunately, I haven’t seen those episodes yet (hopefully today!), but so far her outfits have fit her so nicely and are just exceptional.

I\’m thinking about watching Psychopath Diary since I\’m falling into a YSY shaped hole after watching (and really enjoying) Train and I\’m in the mood for another crime/thriller-eqsue show lol . What are your thoughts on it? Is it worth the watch?

    Yes. It starts out a little weird but gets better.

      I think Psychopath Diary is a TvN drama? But yes, it’s good choice for a mix of comedy and crime. Park Sung-hoon, who’s currently catching beanie attention in MEMORIALS/INTO THE RING, is in it too.

I just finished Memorist and the last two episodes are really good, imo. The middle had so many roundabouts and detours and everything all over the place that I’m happy with the way they tied everything up. YSH’s acting in several scenes in the last couple eps were so strong and added so much to his character when everything was sort of unraveling and I really appreciated it. The trio also stayed true to their beautiful (and hilarious) camaraderie – Chief Gu and Sehun are perfect together LOL

      Now that I’ve finished, I totally agree with your earlier comment. I liked the Jae-gyu background episodes but almost everything else in the middle was just sooooo draggy but the ending was (not really, but sort of) perfect and I really appreciated it!

So, I’ve been watching Memorist because I learned that I missed a YSH drama during my hiatus and I internally cried for a sec. I love true crime/police shows (despite how scary it was at times, Voice was spectacular in my mind) but the amount of plot twists and turns… my head is hurting haha I’m only on episode 9, so it’s not that windy yet but based on what I’ve heard it only gets worse (or better, based on what you’re into). Honestly, though, YSH might be the one of the only things keeping me watching right now LOL aandddd, Chief Gu and Sehun – their bickering is so much fun to watch. What did you guys think of the second half of the show?


5

    Well… better, worse… I couldn’t tell you.
    It took a lot of determination to finish this drama, because it was full of dark scenes in dark alleys, dark basements, dark places… and so many characters, I had to read the recaps everyweek to fully understand who was who.
    I stayed because I love Lee SeYoung and she does an outstanding job, imo.
    I didn’t like how the drama kept on going round and round and round things that were not really related to the plot (yes, believe me, they were not), but still I enjoyed it.
    I don’t think I’ll ever rewatch, but it was ok… sort of…

    1
    1

      That’s the same boat I’m in. I made it to episode 14 so I’m almost there but the recaps are definitely helping me a lottt. Yeah, I agree. LSY does a good job in her role. But, now I’m scared about how annoyed I’m going to be at the end when they reveal who the Eraser really is and how much was really unncessary lol

        I can assure you the ending was satisfying to me, it all made sense, but yes… we could have cut al least a couple of episodes (if not more) and yet we would have the same result.

Ahhhh, I just finished Tale of Nokdu and can I just say that I’m so glad there was a happy ending? I’m very content with how it ended and probably couldn’t have thought of a better ending. The characters were their own with intricate backstories, motives, and flaws that made them more human and made the show so much more enjoyable to watch❤️ I will say that the last episode made me realize how single I am LOL but I loved every second! Now onto the next show! I’m thinking about starting another sageuk? Or, one that’s currently airing? Any recs?

Just an update tho, I’m currently watching ToND (ep 18) and I love it wayyy too much ❤️ I fell in love w JDY in Solomon’s Perjury & seeing him again is abs-olutely amazing (pun definitely intended😉)

    Best Jang Dong-yoon (so far).

      I’d agree with that! SP holds a special place in my heart because I loved the genre, premise, and cast a lot (sooo many introductions to new actorsss). But, seeing JDY cross-dressing? I didn’t think that was something I needed to see in life.

    He’s wonderful in Just Dance/Dance Sports Girls too. It’s more gritty and realistic but it’s a great short drama (8 hours).
