Beanie level: Errand boy

After 3yrs, I finally found time to re-watch Prison Playbook. What an absolute delight!
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
The characters, their stories, their lives! The struggles, the wins and everything in between! This show really captured my heart the 1st time I watched it in 2018, and 3yrs later, I find myself still in love with it.
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Don’t let the length of the episodes deter you! This show is a real gem!

    I’m still so angry about how they ended Loonie’s story.

      I was upset too. not because he relapsed (I feel like this was a sad eventuality) but rather because of how FAST he relapsed. I had whiplash turning my head, like, “WHAAAAAT?!?!”

When you hate-watch an episode at 1.25X speed…
(ep8, Doom at Your Service)

    I have to watch every scene twice just to understand the dialogue. How can you read it that fast???

    I’m so puzzled about why I’m still watching it, and yet here I am still watching it.

      The ending to ep8 has convinced me that the odds of me tuning in for ep9 are very slim.

    I always (somehow) have a pile of laundry to fold while I turn it on. Laundry sees my eyeballs more than the screen

Ep 7 and I\’m only still watching because of my love for the lead actor/actress, and nothing else.

The Writers of Doom At Your Service are trying soooo hard but failing miserably at making this Show a compelling \” complicated mystery-drama about an unlucky love between a dying human and a supernatural being.\”

The \”love me, love me not\” plot has so many holes in it, our poor Park Bo-Young and Seo In-Guk are drowning, just trying to keep their characters as believable as possible. Great actors/actresses are given a very flimsy plot to make miracles with. It\’s sad. Also, I find the deity very very annoying and unconvincing in her supernatural existence. Her aura is more that of a petulant pretentious teenager. The Writers try to make her sound wise beyond her looks, but it falls flat because what she says isn\’t particularly philosophically inspiring or challenging, and aside from making viewers like me wonder why in the hell she\’s at the hospital, she is a rather boring character.

As for the secondary characters!!!!! Lawd, what a waste of these 2 talented men! Urgh! This has got to be THE MOST MEANINGLESS CONFLICT I have witnessed in my over 15 years of watching Kdramas. Like, this is 2021. That is the BEST you could come up with???!? Shame on you, Writers.

*sigh*

At this point, I finally understand what it means to hate-watch a show. I look forward to giving up soon.

    I think we’ll finally breath a sigh of relief when we’re free but for now I keep pressing play for some reason.

      Same. It was like my brain said ‘click on it and then dont watch’. I clicked. It played on the background while I folded laundry

Cheon Song-Yi (played by the amazing Gianna Jun) is one of my favourite Kdrama Female Characters!

She is a hard-working, strong independent woman with almost unparalleled fashion sense; she\’s beautiful (in and out), with a hilarious tinge of air-headed-ness; she is a woman with pride, who also wears her heart on her sleeve. Her honest, unabashed pursuit for Do Min Joon\’s love is truly admirable in all the right ways. She is the dictionary definition of \”Get Your Man, Girl !\”

She is the original scene-stealing Veronica Park (The Secret Life of My Secretary), the predecessor to the powerhouse that is Ko Moon-Young (It\’s Okay Not To Be Okay), and it may have taken Yoon Song-A (Sunbae, Don\’t Put That Lipstick) a few episodes to come around, but she definitely took a page from Cheon Song-Yi\’s book when she opened her heart to the lovestruck Chae Hyun-Seung.

I really enjoyed my rewatch of this gem of a show. The Show had less skinship than I remembered, but the actors/actresses and the plot easily made me forget that — plus there was a clear explanation for the far-and-few kisses 😘😅😷🤒.

8 years after its original airing date, and My Love From The Star still shines very bright!

A woman trying to win her man back with genuine words of love and affirmation. No tricks. Just (finally) giving him all the love she\’s got inside.

Yup, actress Won Jin-A is truly one of my favs and this role, so down-to-earth and honest, was absolutely meant for her.

Get your man, girl!

The constant McDonald\’s coffee PPL. Is the coffee really good, folks?

I am thoroughly enjoying my binge-watching of \”Sunbae, don\’t put that lipstick\”. They have such refreshing takes on beloved tropes; the women are bold and clear about their inner thoughts and feelings; the ex-man (pun intended) has a very compelling story — I dig it!

      His behaviour was problematic and it is acknowledged. He realizes his wrongful forceful ways, and changes for the better. The MUCH better.

    DramaFever was my favorite K-drama streaming service. I could pretty much find everything I like on DF back in the day and the platform had the clean look that I prefer. Also, the subscription was very reasonably priced. Now everyone has their own streaming service and find all the K-dramas in one place is a real challenge.

\”My Love From The Star\”, ep2 (re watch):
I\’m not sure why they insisted on having our handsome stoic alien Do Min-Joo shower with a towel firmly wrapped around his waist. I mean, thanks for the hot abs shots, but WHO SHOWERS IN THEIR OWN HOME WITH A TOWEL AROUND THEIR WAIST???

😅😅😅😂

Good morning and Happy Monday, Beanies!
Last week, after the disappointment I felt in watching the first 10mins of Sisyphus
(just not my cup of tea, unfortunately. I absolutely adore Cho Seung-Woo but… * sigh * How is Park Shin-Hye’s character escaping a horde of assailants with super tech vision/detection equipment + a drone that clearly pointed right at her, while running in a train yard, barefoot, while dragging a suitcase?!?!? HOOOOW?!?!?),
I decided to comfort my soul by re-watching Moment at Eighteen.

What a delight this re-watch was! All the feels came right back up, and my love for the characters and their growth was renewed immediately. This Show was so well done, in terms of expressing realistic teenage innocence and angst, the struggle, the simple joys, toxic parenthood, elitism and Love Love Love… It has a different level of wholesome fluffiness, especially when compared to another of my favourite youth dramas, Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo (which I re-watched in 2019. I adore it!) After watching the last episode last night, my only wish was to be transported into Soo Bin and Joon Woo’s future together. Ah, Teach Oh and Oh Je’s too. I loved those four so much!!

Next on my re-watch list
(because the fear of committing to a New Show only to be disappointed by its lackluster delivery half-way through is all too real. I kind of enjoyed Run On but not quite enough that it didn’t leave a wonky “meh. Blah” aftertaste)

is My Love From the Star !! I hope this one stands the test of time (it’s 8yrs old!).

Have a great week ahead, yorobun !

    I have been thinking about My Love From The Star recently as well (clips from the show randomly pop up on YT for me) and I think I might give it a rewatch one day.

    I barely survived ep1. I watched a few scenes from ep3 after reading Saya’s review over at DoF (the stage scene) only for CSW. But nope, I’m with you, this isn’t working for me.

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 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. 😔)

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!

    His acting is extremely natural. It’s very on point in the sense that it never feels like he is over-acting or downplaying emotions
