Beanie level: Errand boy

So many, many pretty bows tying the ending of Marry My Husband, but I found myself waiting for Mr. Lee’s appearance all the time, and getting distracted when he was not there (his character is such a good change to the story!). I think in the end I still prefer that other marriage+revenge themed, webtoon based drama (that’s how genres are created, lol); it just knew what it wanted, knew what audience wanted, delivered plenty of that and didn’t overstay its welcome. I feel like this one did, just a little.

(Obviously I’ll be finishing up my posts on this drama with the one and only. Main couple? Who are they? ㅋㅋㅋ)

I guess I should’ve expected that showering me with this kind of cavity-inducing sweetness this early on would only leave me with ruined teeth. But alas… The fluffy rug has been ripped right from under my feet.

But fortunately there is Mr. Lee, who makes me swoon with a mere swoosh of his coat. Damn, he’s cool.

    Hehehe… why does this remind me of Junho in King the Land reprising his coat flip from The Red Sleeve.

      That scene, as awesome as it was, made everyone wish they were watching that Junho-at-his-best drama instead of a borefest that was King, lol.

        And to think how eagerly we waited for the drama. 🤦‍♀️ Guess the title should have been a giveaway.

          We all got fooled by the “I received around 100 scripts after Red Sleeve‘ talk, and thought he chose something awesome out of the bunch, when in reality he chose one that required nothing of him acting-wise. Or maybe we were just fooled by our blind love for him. Probably both, hee.

The cuteness of our main leads is almost making up for the fact that Yu-ra’s character exists. Almost.

    Hmm … ratings are still 10+ so quite a few agree with you. 👍😊

      Eh, at this point (since we just wrapped up the penultimate week) I’m sticking around to finish it. It lost its charm somewhere along the way, unfortunately.

Now that the feelings are out in the open, I love it all the more. Give me all the petty bickering, all the swoony bits, all the wonderful moments of having each other’s back. I want it ALL.

    And Park Hyung Sik effortlessly giving her loving moony eyes. It will always be a mystery to me how he does it. Then again, there ARE those people who are naturally born with such expressive eyes, him being one of them 😍

      Don’t tell me about it! I keep melting when I see how he looks at her. He’s truly amazing when it comes to eye-acting (lol).

      The only other pro I can think of off the top of my head is Yoo Seung-ho. That guy could tell you a whole novel with his eyes.

        Oh my goodness, yes!!!! And YSH can for both ways:
        Make you think he’s smitten and in love (a la “I’m not a Robot”) or makes you feel very, very afraid of him (a la his character, Harry, in that drama which I’ve now forgotten its name 😅)

    I know!! As I was watching ep 6 I was thinking to myself, “Should I just start again from the beginning as soon as this drama finishes?” I probably should, right? I just. Love. It all.

Goodness, Park Hyung-sik is seriously outdoing himself with this one. He’s got around 100 different expressions per minute, and each is better than the previous one. I love himmmmm!!! He’s the absolute riot when it comes to comedy.

    Agreed! I feel like we’ve gotten PHS back and even better after the slump of his last drama who’s name I can’t remember, and didn’t fit that depressing tale.

    I also think he is doing really well in the more nuanced parts like when he was just drinking by himself after overhearing her family say Haenul shouldn’t hang out with him since he may bring her down. No words but the pain was so evident. He really needs one real friend not that shower guy!

      But of course! I may have focused on the comedy side of things because he was so on the roll this week, but by no means does it take away from the other aspects of his peformance. He’s crazy good here in general; both when it comes to light fluff + comedy, and deeper, heavier emotions.

    So it’s getting funny? I haven’t made it past the drama of episode 1 and I’m sorry to be missing out on a comedic PHS.

    My Lady looks like PHS is a blessing from the heavens above for your hard work for “you know who” in “you know what” drama.

      I couldn’t help but think about him when I was writing about how expressive PHS is. This guy’s going to be stuck in my head for a long time, I worry. Maybe it is MY turn to hold a grudge for 1500 years? 😂

This made me laugh way more than it should have (or maybe it was just the right amount? His sulking is amazing after all.)

When our green flag of a male lead asks to hold hands just to promptly lace their fingers together I squeeeeee. When our badass of a female lead sends Min-hwan where he rightfully belongs (answer: in the dirt), I cheer. This drama is goddamn satisfying!

Doctor Slump looks fun! As many of you Beanies said, it has that old-school k-drama vibe to it, and can’t say I hate it. Looooving the bickery chemistry of the leads, they are the riot. And himbo Yoon Park too!

When his voice trembled when saying that he went to her funeral… I’m weak, I’m soft, I’m so in love with him.

Enjoyed it more than the Demon one despite its flaws, and despite the existence of Bang Eun-ju. Though kinda rickety on the characters front at times, can’t deny that it had heart and Jeju vibes made it all so much more enjoyable.

+Wookie gave us almost full Wookie power, maybe for the first time since My Suspicious Partner, and it was glorious.

    “+Wookie gave us almost full Wookie power, maybe for the first time since My Suspicious Partner, and it was glorious.”

    YES! 100% yes. It’s impossible to deny Wookie’s charm. His charisma is really off-the-charts and on full display here. 😊

Why the only word that comes to my mind when trying to describe My Demon is ‘soulless’? It had nice cast and decent story, but it fell so completely flat for me for some reason. Mr. F.F. Button made a visit around episode 9-ish and ended up crashing at my place all the way until finale.

    I am so here with you. I’m actually angry at episode 16. I actually guffawed at some of the narrative choices and would like to have those minutes of my life back. I know it’s on me for watching, but I might even make a deal with a demon to absolve myself of this mistake 😛

      Ep 16 was a disaster. Every scene felt forced and the editing was crap. Agggghhhhh!!

    Ah! Someone you finally understands me!!! I dropped it some episodes back. It felt all meh to me. I just didnt see any chemistry between any of the characters.

Ah, the authors of makjang, revenge, time-slip/regression stories really do know how to write their leads. First we had Do-guk, now we have Ji-hyeok. There’s no point in counting, the green flags are just endless.

(Loved the BTS shoutout too. If I were to give myself away in such a situation, it would definitely be with a song that shouldn’t exist yet, lol)

Ji-hyuk is such a hot mess around Ji-won, and I love every second of his fumbling, mumbling, and weirdness. But the lip bite was too much. I don’t appreciate how much I appreciated it.

Ohmaygad, they did the meme. I love this drama 🤣🤣🤣

(And I loooove Hee-yeon. She’s such a cutie.)

Gotta say, the finale did test my patience just a teeeny bit, because as much as I love gat wearing Tae-ha, I prefer Tae-ha that Yeon-woo likes best. Overall, however, I loved this drama. It was so zippy and fun, and knew what it wanted to be. The formula was nothing new nor spectacular, but damn did the leads make it work like a Swiss watch. Their chemistry was natural, effortless and overwhelmingly sweet. You can tell that the actors really clicked together.

I came into this adoring and trusting Lee Se-young – and as always she did not disappoint – but if you’ve seen my other posts (this one’s a dead giveaway too, lol), you know that I fell helplessly in love with Bae In-hyuk. I’m coming out as a die-hard fan of his, awaiting and anxious for his next project, and thanking myself from the past for deciding to watch this drama.

Let’s say goodbye to The Story Of Park’s Marriage Contract with 16x Tae-ha. Because 16x Tae-ha is better than 1x Tae-ha. Ah, I already miss the dimples…

I thought I was having a stroke when I saw Tae-min wearing this sweater, because I could’ve sworn I’ve seen it before. Turns out I did see it. I saw it two hours earlier.

    I have seen this sweater too many times today 😂😂
    And I am going to see it again when I watch the drama tonight!!

    I saw them in the reverse order but it really was funny. Are they sharing a wardrobe department? lol

      I thought wardrobes, or at least the more important characters’ wardrobes, were the dramas’ stylists’ jobs.

      Recently I saw an interview where the actors were saying that they kept turning up on the set in matching clothes without having arranged it before.

      I was really surprised to hear it. Don’t the directors want their actors to at least not clash with each other and their backgrounds?

    I had to search for it and it is an Etro sweater (normally a very esteemed “quiet luxury” brand) and can be had for $500-700 depending on where you’re shopping 😆

This man is rendering my favorites list (which is already unreliable, and everchanging like water currents) a complete mess. He’s unfair. He’s mean. Give me a fan, please.

Jeez, this is so so silly, but I gotta say, Park Min-young is selling it hard. Even though I finished the webtoon, so most of the plot is still fresh in my mind, I’m having a lot of fun. They had me at punching away the kettle 🤣

But please, PLEASE, burn Na In-woo’s character’s entire closet. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a suit this ill-suited. He looks like he raided his dad’s closet (or grandpa’s for the shirt+cardigan combo) and is playing dress-up. That + his weird acting is making me unable to look at him without laughing.

    Immediately after posting this my eyes fell on the picture in the cardigan, and wouldn’t you know – I started giggling.

    Since I now know Na In Woo as the bumbling cast member in 1N2D, I can’t take any of those expressions seriously. The suits and cardi has to go. He needs a makeover in the show.

    I think his Clark Kent/neutral-loving-nerd vibe is working for the character so far. We’ll see if his wardrobe changes as his character evolves and falls in love.

    The part that got me in the first episode was when PMY’s glasses fogged up when she was eating the noodles. I liked it in that moment as a relatable event most of us have experienced at one time or another, but also later, when it became the reason for NIW’s character to remove his glasses.

      Exactly, as a fellow glasswearer, this scene is on point but how brilliant! kdrama is using it to get my attention on NIW 😂

        That soup-fogging-glasses-removing Clark Kent moment was indeed well played.

        I also don’t mind the wardrobe so far as a Clark Kent character. I also wouldn’t mind it improving further down the line when he reveals his superhero self!

        The ML’s clothes also remind me about the complaints we had about the ML’s clothes in that other time-traveling betrayed wife revenge drama.

          I guess we won’t be surprised anymore if he reveals himself as a superhero, right? Every clue presented seems pointing that way 😂
