Beanie level: Errand boy

I really wanted to like Start Up, but my God how stupid. Who divorces and never sees their child again. I was so distracted by that part of the story I could focus on literally nothing else. Dumb.🤔

    Like for why did neither child see the other parent. When her father died, did her mother not come get her. Was her sister not sad her father died. WTF. I’ve seen this so many times in kdramas where after a divorce the parent completely disavows the child. What even is that? Also why not tell her the letter was a lie after 15 years? Why? Why?

    It’s actually less surprising than you might think. I know people who’ve done this, in the country I live in and in the country my parents came from.

      Far less surprising and far less common***

      That is insane, in United States there custody for children is literally called custody battles. Parents just picking one child and never seeing the other is mind blowing to me, that is wild. I know of parents who simply abandon their children, but they do that regardless of divorce. The fact that everyone was so calm that one parent wouldn’t see their child and no follow up is baffling to me.

    Many years ago, a close friend of ours got divorced and his ex-wife left their 5-year son with him and went abroad to marry another man and stayed in that country and never to contact her son ever again since she had her own family to care. So ya, that shit actually happened. Heartbreaking for the 5-year old boy.

      It must have been, that is awful. I bet the little boy was sad. That is still mind-boggling to me. Unfortunately it will prevent from watching the show because that’ll be all I think about.

JY needs to communicate to SA. However I don’t blame him for KY showing up all over the place, he has made himself very clear. KY was a petty petty Betty here, I was really disappointed in her.

IGFDSHAIEWFGAKWENGFKLSNEFKWJNFEGI, NOOOOOOO, I am so frustrated. While I am cheering for Song Ah to look after her mental health, I am also upset her insecurities are stopping this relationship.

    There’s been so many incidents piling up though. I find it hard to just think of it as her being insecure. We have so much information that she doesn’t, so we can see more clearly. I don’t think their relationship is a good idea, even though they were such a sweet couple

      I get that, our omniscience let’s us know a lot. However, her explanation when breaking up with him points mostly to her insecurities.

    I’m surprised Joon Young hasn’t had a breakdown yet….I really hope he’s thrown those pills away…

Joon Young hurt my soul this episode. I felt so bad for him, Brava Kim Min Jae. As for Song Ah, it is looking like her insecurities are going to get in the way, NOOOOOO, don’t do this to us writer.

I am going to need both Min Seong and Hyeon Ho to take several seats. Neither of our leads acted on their crushes or ruined anything. They didn’t need to tell anyone who they liked. Making my OTP sad.

    This is why I never let them aboard our cruise. Not real friends.

    I hated them both, and I’m proud to say I’ve hated them both form the very beginning. First when they refused to accept that their relationships were over and that the other half was ready to let them go, acting almost violently, like if they had the right to have that person by their side. Second, when they accused both SA and JY of being bad friends for not telling them about their (secret) love.
    These two are so selfish, just thinking about themselves. No wonder they’ve been dropped by their former couples, and I really hope they disappear and never find the way back to SA and JY. Our leads deserve better friends, specially when they’ve been so loyal to their friendship.

      I don’t hate them, lol. They are just not being very good friends right now, they are hurting and lashing out at the wrong people. I do understand your sentiment though.

@eazal, I just binge watched the entirety of the school nurse files. I LURVED it. I thought it would be weirder than it was because of some of the beanie descriptions.

I am OBSESSED with Do you like Brahms? Kim Min Jae delivered his lines about missing her and her making him happy so flawlessly my heart literally beat faster. My God, the chemistry is Beyond.

      I see him in a completely different light. I was legitimately surprised at my reaction to that scene. I’m still a little shook. I haven’t the faintest idea what it is about this drama.

Also Record of Youth was boring, at least the first episode, I hope it picks up. This is not good. It wasn’t good or bad just meh.

As for the clear messiness about to start, I’m here for it, I don’t think it will get to Dinner Mates level, shudder, but it is coming and I am ready.

Just finished episode 2 of Do you like Brahms? I still like it. However, I don’t like montages that show people talking, rather than just them talking. What did y’all think?

    Now that I’ve seen Episode 2, I know what you mean. I was really looking forward to their first real conversation over dinner, and was disappointed to be an outsider.

    Overall I really liked it, but how many times are they going to flashback to that girl just kissing him out of the blue? 😂

      Yes and yes! The overuse of that flashback…. ugh.

      Agree and it wasn’t even a great kiss, which makes it even less interesting. Hopefully now that he has a friend, there will be far less of that.

      We’ve seen it like five times and it’s only episode two.
      And… is her boyfriend totally clueless of how miserable she is? Does he think her fish face is because of her migraines? He needs to focus a little more on his relation and less on his cello, which he carries all around but we’ve never seen him playing it.

    I wanted the conversation to play out too.

    And you again speak my mind.
    Also, I need less people staring to the void with concerned looks as if they knew the answer to life, universe and everything (don’t overthink, it’s 42), and more things happening.
    I’ll just watch next week, but I have a terrible “Dinner Mate exes” feeling about the two love triangles in this drama.

I also hope it is recapped.

So I just watched the first episode of Do you like Brahms? And I don’t really know very much about Brahms and frankly he sounds kind of depressing but I’m really loving this drama.

    I also loved episode 1. I think leads are awkwardly cute together, but I’m afraid it’s not going to be recapped. It’s not in the list 😕.

      Yeah
      I don’t know how db pick shows to recap (does anyone knows) but it can be sad sometimes when some shows ain’t recapped.

        I guess it’s the recappera decision, like when I decide whether to watch a show or not, but I really thought this would be recapped considering how many beanies had expressed their intention to watch.

          Maybe they’re just as afraid as I am that it could go off the rails, but that’s when the snark is useful.

            So many shows have been off the rails and still had still got recapped. I just think it’s a personal call from recappers.
            I remember even that The Game Towards Zero didn’t even got completely recapped.

    Trust me…you’ve heard Brahms…his Hungarian Dance No. 5 at the very least…its one of those classical pieces that everybody knows but doesn’t know the name, check if you want in youtube…I personally like his Intermezzi Op. 117

    3
    1

      Lol, yes you are correct. I just listened to Hungarian dance No. 5, I heard it in a cartoon. I think Tom and Jerry, but don’t quote me on that. Intermezzi Op. 117 is beautiful too. The more ypu know, thanks for the info.
