Beanie level: Errand boy

Monday morning announcement: I finally finished the last season of Schitt’s Creek on Netflix yesterday, and immediately proceeded to do a “fast-forward” re-watch of my favourite scenes across ALL 6 seasons! I am obsessed with David and Patrick!!
(I am particularly sleep deprived now…)

I just reached the end of ep14 and, yeah, I know Dae-Young eventually has to go back to looking like an adult in order for him to be happy as a couple with his wife Da-Jung, but hot damn ❤️🥵💋🙈💞!

The chemistry between actor Lee Do-Hyun and actress Kim Ha-Neul is 🔥🔥🔥.

This is the stuff that creative people make whole fanfictions about! The ultimate Noona Romance that isn’t really one!

* fans self *

(I already read the recap for ep 15-16, thanks to @lollypip. It’s too bad that the actor who got me so drawn into this show is so absent at the end. 😔)

Pausing “18 Again” to start “Mr. Queen.” Let’s see what the hype is all about. 😊

I just binge-watched all 10 episodes of “Run On” and gosh! On the romantic front, “Run On” has one of the slowest, most chaste and dry progress ever. I’m enjoying the stories, the dialogue, the character quirks and development, but argh, the romance is painfully slow. I’ve watched high school dramas that worked through miscommunications faster!

    And I just binged 10 episodes of The Rebel Princess so if you think that one’s slow, the FL and ML haven’t even said 1 word together. 🤣

    Well, that’s the main theme in Run On: communication (or the lack of it), and that’s precisely what I find so compelling about the drama!

Happy New 2021, Beanies!
May this be a good K-Drama year for all!
In the Fall 2020, I struggled to finish “Into The Ring”, although the OTP were really truly very cute, just like fans of the show had said.

I suffered of a dry spell for a few months and today, I caved in and started “18 Again”, and WHAT A STRONG FIRST EPISODE!

I’m hooked!

Thanks to all the fans of the show for all the love you gave it on the Beanie wall and in reviews.

          The 1st 2 Eps are cute and I appreciate that she’s genuinely nice but gosh, can’t she even start to think about working instead of shamelessly depending on a total stranger’s abounding kindness?

    Have you tried Kairos? I know it’s only two episodes, but the opening week was solid in acting, directing, writing and editing. I’m really impressed.
    On a lighter note and if you just want to have fun and don’t care a lot about tropes and some very VERY poor CGI, you can try Search, it’s only 10 episodes and it’s really fun (in the entertaining way, because it can also be scary).

I’m not sure what I’m watching but I’m strangely fascinated and willing to strain my brain to make sense of it all — the plot, the characters, the pacing… Everything !

    Yes!! I watched yesterday episodes 1-3 and I was like… wow… what I am watching… I love this super weird thing, whatever it is!!

      I binged all 6 episodes and… Suuuuper weird. I have so many questions and I am convinced I won’t get answers to any!
      But I’ll definitely watch the 2nd season when it comes out. 😁

“He SMILED!”
“He ATE!”
“They shared a can of soda!”
“They’re laughing together!”

The Beanie FanWall is a testament to how much we love our stoic Shi-Mok and hardworking Yeo-Jin. Everything that makes them happy makes us happy.

More, please, MORE!!

It’s ep7 that (finally!) got me hooked!
Yes! I love this feeling when all the seemingly unrelated plot lines slowly start to converge and the suspense is there!

I am sad to report that, 6 episodes into \”Forest of Secrets 2\”, I am neither intrigued nor excited. This makes me very sad, given how much I adored season 1.

    Eun Soo…there I said it…her character bought a loose canon energy and her scenes with Shi Mok had a raw chemistry.

      Sure, there is that. But mostly, it’s just that the plot itself doesn’t interest me. I love love love the character interactions (and I adore Beanies for posting those precious moments) but I am having a hard time caring for the actual plot. The Hanjo business issues. The police/prosecution corruption. Season 1 was genuinely interesting and exciting. There was a lot of tension, and yes, part of the tension was Eun-Soo’s meddling. I was 101% invested.

      And here, I find myself simply coasting, praying the drama gods will grace our screens with more Shi-mok/Yeo-Jin interactions, but alas, those moments have been rare. Our violent crime team discovers our favourite weasel Dong-Jae’s car and my 1st thought was “isn’t there a csi team supposed to take care of this? Why are they the ones processing the scene?”. The 2nd thought was that his disappearance has (unfortunately) no impact on me, because the plot so far has failed to bring the tension, the urgency that is needed for me to truly care. Yes, I like Dong-Jae and it would suck if he died, but compared to the utter shock and sadness I felt when Eun-Soo died…

      Maybe I should wait until it ends and binge-watch it?

        think actual plot pretty much is police Vs prosecution with judiciary thrown in.. only for everyone to learn at the end of the day that collusion rocks!..

        There’s no feeling of being on edge this time for me. I mean Yeo Jin and Shi Mok are great but that’s just one part. I miss that whole don’t know who to trust, who is volatile enough to kill part.

      Housemates and I were binge watching S1 (with me rewatching) and they didn’t like her for being too nosy the whole time. Had to slightly defend her without spoiling 😂 especially what happened to her then

        Drama viewers tend to not like any other female they perceive as a threat to main female protagonists screen time subconsciously, observation on my part. She got a lot of hate because people pitted her with Yeo Jin back then which was unnecessary. She kept things interesting, her dynamic with Shi Mok had more layers to it but hey Yeo Jin made him smile so why is this girl with selfish agenda there, was everyone’s sentiment back then. I mean it made me a little mad back then. A character is allowed to exist that doesn’t strike a friendship or allyship with everyone.

          that is a very good analysis of my feelings at the time.
          On the 2nd watch of season 1, I came to appreciate her more, and yet, her meddling was truly misguided and still annoying.

    Had the same impression on ep 1 and 2, but when episode 3 started to introduce Shi mok’s way of analysing the scene, My interest went back.Punches are subtle this season, and the writer seems to point out that what is supposedly a mundane and natural response (shimok reaching out to the chief prosecutor for help on the rental scam) can cause heavy implications. As CP Lee Chang joon pointed out, it only started with a dinner treat. I treat S1 as solving problems, while S2 is more about the theory 😂

    Honestly, S1 plot was pretty boring for me too. The only exciting thing was who would betray, or help, whom and when. I didn’t really care about any of the characters except YJM character. I don’t know why I wanted him to turn out to be the mole from the beginning. And when they started to drop hints, that was when I started to care at last. This time around the lack of who will end up where probably takes away most of the tension.
    P.s. (from a hiding place) I HATE the beginning of S1. It was just a constant replay and flashback of a murder case that I didn’t care about AT ALL. I only stuck with it because LJH made me laugh and YJM made me swoon. And I’m saying that as a person who nearly never roots for the bad guys.

    I can understand you, but I’m still hooked.
    S1 was about solving a crime, S2 is not about that.
    It’s more similar to Life (the previous show by the same writer). Nothing seems to be happening but I can’t stop watching.
    I guess the main point to me is how these exhausted characters can make a difference.

      you’re right. similar to “Life” indeed. and I ended up enjoying it a lot, mostly for the character growth and development as well. and yes, our S2 characters are indeed exhausted… I wanna hug them!

        I want to hug them and make them seat in a comfortable place and have a lovely meal together while we talk about little insignificant things that makes us happy. They need a break!!

          it’s hilarious that we’re all noticing that Shi-Mok NEVER has time to eat a proper meal. ha ha ha

I\’m really going to miss IONTBO but for real, I am beyond excited that Forest of Secret S2 is starting next weekend. Like, how am I going to manage waiting another whole 6 days?? Hoooooow? 😭😭

      it might be because you only recently discovered FoS? or maybe (clearly, based on your DB name), you really love IONTBO a lot more? * wink *
      I’ve had the same profile pic since finishing FoS while it aired. I LOVED that show. invested some major tears and the twists just – poof! – blew me away!

        Oh no, I live watched it from ep6. Had exams during the first two weeks but then I caught up and lived every moment of it. Wasn’t active in DB though due academic schedule.
