    These screenshots are gorgeous!! How were you able to take them? (I’ve been trying to go around the system on Netflix but it’s not letting me anymore so I’m trying to find another way LOL)

      Yeah…so I took these on one of the other sites where they ripped the episodes straight from Netflix…
      I have heard there are ways around the Netflix block, but I couldn’t tell you myself. I recommend posting the question to the wall. I know there are other beanies who have figured it out 🙂

        If you don’t mind me asking, what website was it? You could post it and then delete it immediately after if you’re worried? Otherwise, I completely understand and I’ll just post something on my wall 🙂

Day 14 – Favorite movie quote

Frodo : I can\’t do this, Sam.

Sam : I know.
It\’s all wrong.
By rights we shouldn\’t even be here.
But we are.
It\’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo.
The ones that really mattered.
Full of darkness and danger they were,
and sometimes you didn\’t want to know the end.
Because how could the end be happy.
How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad happened.
But in the end, it\’s only a passing thing, this shadow.
Even darkness must pass.
A new day will come.
And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer.
Those were the stories that stayed with you.
That meant something.
Even if you were too small to understand why.
But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand.
I know now.
Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn’t.
Because they were holding on to something.

Frodo : What are we holding on to, Sam?

Sam : That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.

Day 11 – Favorite movie from childhood

I’m just going to randomly jump in for this one. The first two that come to mind are Homeward Bound and Bambi. I almost wore those VHS tapes out. For some reason I would always watch Homeward Bound when I got sick, and I would almost always cry. The ending was worth it though.
Three others that come to mind are Finding Nemo, The Polar Express, and The Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I don’t come from much of a movie family (a favorite pastime of mine is shocking people with all the movies I haven’t seen). So we very, very rarely went to the theaters, but these three I did see in theaters, and they instantly became favorites.

    I LOVED Homeward Bound!

    My family and I are also not movie goers. Growing up, I could probably count the number of times I went to the theaters, and it was to watch a few Disney films. I didn’t watch my first live-action film until much later. I started watching films that many people talked about (such as certain ’80s cult classics) as an adult. As a child, there was a time when I watched a lot of classic films from the forties and fifties on tv.

      I’m glad to know there are others with a similar movie experience (or lack thereof). I feel like an alien sometimes 😅. I have a lengthly list of movies I would like to eventually watch, it’s just that this kdrama hole I’m in is pretty deep. I don’t venture out of it much these days.

        I used to re-watch films that I liked so many times, but not so much now (mostly because some family members like to watch new things; I have no problem returning to what I like, lol, but I rarely get the chance to). I watch very little of anything most of the time. And I try to limit the number of kdramas I watch at a given time. I’m not really the addict type. 🙂

    Have you seen the BBC versions of the Chronicles of Narnia films? They don’t have the fancy special effects of the more recent films but they remain faithful to the source material.

Today my mother received a B-day card which, unbeknownst to her, was very much inspired by a certain drama 😅.

It’s Okay to Not Be Okay has me watching bts, interviews, script readings, press conferences, photo shoots…

I never do this. Most of the time I avoid behind the scenes videos because it tends to pull me out of the story a bit. Instead of being immersed in the story and characters, I find myself thinking about the set, how it was shot, them rehearsing their parts, and imagine all the cameras and equipment that are surrounding them. And while there’s nothing wrong with that, and I find the art of filming very interesting, most of the time I just want to be immersed into the story as much as possible.

With IOTNBO, I do find myself thinking about the filming aspect a little bit after watching the bts, but so far I don’t think it’s pulling me out of the story too much. I’m just enjoying their “off camera” dynamics too much and can’t help clicking play when I see a new video.
My lack of bts viewing probably also has something to do with the fact that I rarely live watch, so I generally don’t have these extra 5 days to wander around while waiting for new eps.

So what are your thoughts on bts content? How often do you watch it? Does it add or detract from your viewing experience? What shows have produced your favorite bts clips?

I’ll leave you with this video of KSH being nervous and cute. I love how he did the butterfly hug when he got flustered 😄.

    I always seek out behind-the-scenes footage and interviews of all my favorite shows partly for the ~extra content~ and partly because I’m so curious as to how tv shows/movies are produced. It all seems wildly fun to me! It doesn’t take me out of the story at all, and if a bts clip is more interesting than the actual finished product, I’d rather just drop it. hehe

    I usually don’t watch bts, for the same reason as you and to avoid spoilers, but I do enjoy watching interviews like this, where you can see how different actors are from characters and a bit of their real selves. “I could be photoshopped”, he’s funny! And Director, “I don’t want to stand next to these two actors”, lol

    2

      Yeah, it’s a wonder I don’t watch more of the interviews because I’m always interested in how the actor’s real personality compares with the character they are playing. Especially the cases where there is such a drastic difference that it’s a bit shocking. It just further adds to my respect of their talent.

    I LOVE BLOOPERS! Be it Hollywood series or Kdrama, whenever I finish watching anything I go for the bloopers and deleted scene hunting in YouTube. One of the reasons I love it is because it let’s me peek at the dynamic exchanges between the cast and crew and how the iconic scenes of a drama comes to life. I actually fell in love with KSH and his acting after seeing his giggling fits shown in MLFAS bts reel. On the other hand bts of goblin made me realize how awfully good of an actor Gong Yoo is. Kdramas rarely release deleted scenes, but in some cases of US/UK dramas, I found the deleted scenes to be supporting material.

      Yes! I always enjoy the bloopers whenever I do watch bts! Some of my favorite kinds are when the set malfunctions. Like when a door won’t open or the set breaks. I still remember the one they included at the end of one of the Dream High eps when Taecyeon is trying to enter the set and the door falls off. Gave me a good laugh.
      I actually watched a couple of MLFAS bts videos last night. You’re tempting me to go hunt down some more of these giggling fits!
      The only deleted scene I remember watching from a kdrama was the MLFAS epilogue. I wonder what else I’ve missed?
