Beanie level: Eunuch in drag

CAFE MINAMDANG, ep 5. What a stupid, cliche show. I dunno about the rest of the cast, but Seo In-gook and Oh Yeon-seo are much better than this. WHY agree to such a stupid show?!

    Honestly, I couldn’t make it past the first 10 minutes of E1.

      Unbelievably (because that first episode was bad), it gets infinitely worse.

      Same. It was plain boring despite all the vibrant colors used.

      I also gave this show a try (episode 1 only), but unfortunately things didn’t work out.

    I like stupid, cliche shows tbh. Maybe that’s why they make them, for people like me 🤣

      Loool fair enough. Something for everyone. I don’t like them, but I watch all the same, hehe. I still maintain the leads could have done much better than this show.

    Is Seo In gook better than this though? I have not made it through one of his series due to him just not being good.

      He’s good in Hello Monster. That’s the only thing I’ve seen of his that I was not tempted to fast forward.

Hi everyone.
Your resident killjoy, back in service for ALCHEMY OF SOULS ep 1. RThis is absolutely not fair, but really, my most prominent thought the whole time was: “Do these people do NOTHING but live their lives looking for revenge?”

    When there’s nothing to watch on tv, I guess. lol.

    Yeah, when a drama is about revenge I always focus on something else. So AoS, for me, is about the romance and comedy, I don’t care about the revenge or politics tbh.

      There are a few revenge dramas thst are wonderful, but I find that they tend to be exceptions, rather than the rule. My favorite is NIRVANA IN FIRE, which truly, was more about serving justice and righting a grievous wrong, than about revenge itself

        I feel like the revenge is just there to connect the other storylines tbh, so I never really pay attention to it.
        I like revenge I’m movies, tho. Sympathy for Lady Vengeance for example.

        I’m gonna add Nirvana yo my watchlist. Thanks! ^^

BULGASAL up to ep 10: these men spent 600 yrs walking the face of earth, and didn’t collect nary a speck of wisdom in that time span. And all the reincarnated people too, didn’t learn ANY sense in their new lifetimes. What a waste. Mtcheeeew

BULGASAL end of ep 4. But of course. Caveats have been introduced : a real big bad (eyeroll). And now , we set the stage for the love story.

Hmmm, come to think of it, are there any fantasy sageuks anyone can think of? I’d like to watch one.

    Mirror of the Witch it is

    Those are the only ones I have watched (I think).

    Arang and the magistrate
    Gu Family Book
    Mirror of the Witch
    The Scholar who walked the night

    Honestly, cdramas seem to have more historical fantasies. They have a name for the genre; I believe it’s Xianxia.
    I have only seen Ashes of Love but loved it. I personally liked it better than any of the above sageuk fantasy but that’s just my personal preference.

      I’ve seen and enjoyed both Mirror of the Witch and Arang and the Magistrate. I haven’t seen the other too.
      I too, really like Xianxia dramas 🤗🤗🤗

    How about the delightful SPLASH SPLASH LOVE (2015) (Kim Seul-gi, Yoon Doo-joon)? Only 2 episodes and it is available on Viki US.

Bulgasal…. This female shaman irks my soul so much. What a useless entity!!!! All this exposition would been nice when he was a kid, wouldn’t it? Instead of telling everyone he needs to die. Kmt

Still on BULGASAL ep 3. The problem is that I still don’t like ANY of these people. Not Hwal, not Sang-woo (or whatever her name is)… None of them. Except Officer Suh Young-gi, who looks like a cute curmudgeonly ahjusshi in the present, but who absolutely smolders as an ancient soldier/warrior (rawr). I still don’t care for the mythology. Not quite reached hate-watch status yet, but here we are.

I need a sageuks to watch. Preferably one of the OG ones. None of these new-fangled ones. 😩😩

#BULGASAL ep 2: 3 minutes in, and I’m annoyed. What sollof logic is this?

BULGASAL, end of ep 1: I can’t stress how poor the premise is, but story certainly appears epic in scope. Let’s hope it delivers! Also, it’s nice to see Officer Suh Young-gi again 😁. And adult Hwal (Lee Jin-wook) reminds me so much of a young Bae Soo-bin.

BULGASAL ep 1. 30 mins in, and….. Lemme just enjoy this show instead of being a killjoy, because, I’m sorry, what back story is this?! These writers need to start putting in effort. Come on!

THE RED SLEEVE CUFF ep 7 :halfway through the episode and I’m bored. How many jealous eyes and possessiveness from afar can the Crown Prince do? Can we get a move on already?!

I liked HAPPINESS ep 1 and 2 a lot ( Han Hyo-joo makes me happy and I like Park Hyung-sik), but I dunno if I can watch this. Horror/zombies/vampires (or zombified vampires) aren’t my thing at all.

JIRISAN ep 1:Giant eyeroll. I mean, I know being dramatic and sensational is what catches and holds viewers’ ateention, but can we try to at least inject a little realism sometimes? Just a teensy bit.

THE KING’S AFFECTION ep1 and 2: I don’t find any of this heartwarming at all. It is just so painful and sad (and abusive too, if we wanna keep it a 100 – forcing this girl to live like this).

LOVERS OF THE RED SKY: this show is unbelievably boring, my goodness.

ONE THE WOMAN ep 2: OK I lied. Slapstick comedy really just isn’t for me. However, I am very curious to see where this goes, so I will continue with the series for now. And what about the real Mi Na? What has happened to her? Where is she? Finally… Lee Sang-Yoon is sooo handsome, I just want to melt. I could look at his face all day!

ONE THE WOMAN ep 1: I liked it. I don’t do slapstick comedy well (as evidenced by the immediate turnoff of VINCENZO), but in this case, Honey Lee’s antics worked for me. I’m interested to see w

LOVERS OF THE RE SKY ep 1. I’m sorry, but this mythology is stupid. WHAT?! was the point of any of this? And that kid DIDN’T SACRIFICE his life. Kmt. He was to be murdered. Nonsense.
