Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

1. Yoon Shi-yoon is so damn amazing as both Do-wons. Their scenes together are too good.
2. The ending of ep. 8 is 😮.

Omg, yes! Both Do-wons are in the same world, this is so exciting!!!

(But at the same time I’m wondering about possible consequences. This must be breaking some alternate-universes rules, right?)

Still haven’t started It’s Okay to Not Be Okay (Kim Soo-hyun, but I’m 10 eps behind… Lazy…), but after skimming through the recap of Train I became intrigued, so I started that one instead (also Yoon Shi-yoon). And it’s sooo good! I really enjoyed it, felt that the episodes seemed to be over way too soon, and wanted more after each one. The story’s interesting, execution is solid and the acting’s A+; I forgot how good YSY is when he gets serious and I’m looooving him in this one. Seems that I’m a sucker for tragic lovers scenario, because the angst between the leads in Train hurts me so good. Can’t say I’m a fan of k-drama thrillers, and this my first OCN watch, but I’m feeling it! Fingers crossed it stays that way.

    I’m feeling the same way!! I still need to catch up on this week’s episodes but YSY’s acting in Train is something you just can’t miss! (I’m also incredibly behind on IONTBO aka haven’t started either though I have a feeling either today or tomorrow is going to be the day…lol)

      I fear that if I don’t start it by the end of the week (before eps 11 and 12 come out) then I won’t start it at all. But so lazy…

        I watched the first ep yesterday and it was reallyyy good! But, I fear the same, that I’ll get so far behind that I just won’t end up finishing welp

Why is Backstreet Rookie so bad? Why was I meh-ing (there is no such word…) half the time? Why are they shooting it like Moon Lovers with actors looking straight at the goddamn camera? Who is the dreadlocks guy and what other purpose does he serve besides being creepy? Where is the plot? Why is Kim Yoo-jung so pretty? And why the fuck am I even considering giving it a shot for one more week? So many questions, so little answers.

Been so behind on everything k-music related, but I’m slowly catching up and that of course meant giving a listen to the newest album from my boys. Well now I’m crying. Thanks, DAY6.

(This fan-made MV hits right in the feels too…)

So you’re telling me he’s going to be the only one who remembers all the fist bumps? And you expect me to be fine with that? Sigh…

(Jokes aside though, I really enjoyed the drama. The performances were great, and the story, despite few flaws, was pretty solid too.)

    It was nice that they keep their relationship onscreen as pure friends but they really do look good together!

    I felt sad too that this means that Ga Hyun will not remember all their memories of working together and ofc their first bumps but heres to hoping they will have happier memories and happier fist bumps in the future!

    I believe they will be more than friends. In previous resets they have been acting cute with each other: HyungJoo’s puppy eyes when he looked at GaHyun, or GaHyun texting him ^^.
    They had a good chemistry together.
    And a smiling LJH is a plus to watching any drama!!!

Did I watch Secretly, Greatly just because I learned that Kim Soo-hyun is going to have a cameo in episode 10? Yes. Did I hold off watching episode 10 until I’ve watched Secretly, Greatly? Yes. Did I enjoy it? Yes. Do I now miss Kim Soo-hyun like crazy, and cried a little, and want him to be back in dramaland and sweep me off my feet with his acting and overall perfection? YES YES YES 😭😭😭

    I’m looking forward to his return to our screens too! He has a lot of range but I don’t think he has taken on a character where he can show his full potential yet. I’m hoping Psycho but It’s Okay leans more towards the slice-of-life/ light melo genre.

      When I think about his acting skills, the first thing that comes to my mind is one of the scenes in YWCFTS. There was this interview-like part of the plot, and in one of the epilogues Do Min-joon was asked about his upcoming return. In the matter of seconds Kim Soo-hyun completely broke down and started sobbing, and I remember that I was floored the first time I saw it (and many times after that). It was so heart-wrenching and genuine that for a moment I forgot it was a drama. I don’t know if he’s shown his full potential anywhere yet, but that scene was truly brilliant, and absolute heights of acting performance.

Also, can I just say how much I LOVE Hyun Bin in this role? He’s so damn good I’m unable to take my eyes off of him…

(I really want that picture on my wall, it’s perfect 😍)

    This role has rekindled my love for him as a k-drama lead!
    I had really tired of him playing absolute jerks, but Ri Jung-hyuk is SO sweet and I love that he he’s showing us more of this side of him. 😍😍💖💖

      Yeah, I mostly remember him from SG, where he was very over the top, and intense (to contrast Ha Ji-won’s stoic character I guess). I never doubted his acting skills, but that role is kinda outdated. In this drama he’s like the perfect male lead: respectful, swoony, caring, loving, funny, badass, adorable… You could go on for ages, really. He’s really made a good comeback with this one 😍

        Yessss, it’s an amazing comeback!
        It seems like every decade, he gets a smash-hit drama.
        2000s was My Name is Kim Sam-soon, 2010s was Secret Garden, and he’s starting off the 2020s the right way with Crash Landing on You.

I finally got through most of my exams, so obviously I had to pick up a new drama! I’ve been rewatching bits and pieces of some of the older dramas lately, and one of them was Secret Garden, and after that (and a hand-crafted sequin tracksuit) the choice for the next watch became obvious. And…

I really, really like it. It’s epic, it’s beautiful, the characters are meaty and interesting, and the plot is fast-paced and the action gripping. I joined kinda late in the game, but I’m still really enjoying it nonetheless.

Also, I just finished The Secret Life of My Secretary (also on YT…), and as much as the drama itself was nothing spectacular, the soundtrack was just perfect.

The moment I’ve heard this beautiful tune, I knew it was somewhat familiar. I did some research, and turns out the composer (Kim Dong-hyuk) made some of the tracks for Come Here and Hug Me. And let me tell you, that soundtrack was one of the best I’ve ever heard in a drama. This one is almost just as good.

Lately I’m super addicted to YouTube. I spend hours watching panda videos, gaming videos, commentary videos and of course k-drama related videos. So imagine my surprise when I noticed that SBS released a bunch of their dramas there, fully subbed and all. I fell out of drama watching yet again, but this brought me right back in.

I rewatched (of course skipping boring stuff I already know about) A Girl Who Sees Smells, Greasy Melo, Beautiful Gong Shim, a little bit of Scent of a Woman and my all time favourite drama to rewatch, Master’s Sun. Oh, how I love this one. I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of it. I’ll always come back, always swoon over So Ji-sub, always laugh at the wacky humour, and always get feels when I hear this music.

P.S. I’m in the middle of my exams. So yeah… I got my priorities straight 🙃

I just read the news, and as a fan of EXO I couldn’t be happier for Jongdae. Boys look so youthful that I sometimes forget that they are all grown-ass adult men (Xiumin will be 30(!) this year), and getting married or having kids is perfectly normal.

I’ve read some negative responses though, and once again I cringe at how disgusting some people that call themselves “fans” can get. I don’t understand how could you hate on the fact that somebody you support is happy. It’s sickening. But there is also a lot of positivity, so I’m glad Chennie is getting support from loyal EXO-Ls.

Turns out Wookie not only smokes but ALSO has tattoos? Not sure about the smoking bit, but those tattoos look niiiiiice…

    I get somewhat surprised when I hear a Korean (especially male) doesn’t smoke. We have a large international student population and Koreans make a large sum (they have a specific hostel) of it. I can’t possibly know even half of them but I can tell you this, I’m yet to meet one Korean guy that doesn’t smoke. The competition between them, the Europeans and the Arabs is fierce!

    He posted this IG story of him smoking and 100% trying to look cool and it was a turn-off tbh. If you smoke in your personal life whatever (it’s gross but you do you I guess) but going on social media trying to make it look cool is such a teenager thing to do, ew.

      I don’t really know what’s with his IG these days. Starting with this smoking post, which seemed so forced and weird, and now he’s spamming with his LA (I think) getaway. I’m not saying there’s something wrong with it, but he’s never posted so much before, and I find it a bit strange. I just hope he’s doing fine, that’s all.

    I saw a few of his posts on IG and I’ve kind of gone off him now.Maybe it is the lingering aftertaste of his character in Melt Me. Glad he is having fun, I hope the IG algorithm stops pushing his posts on my feed.

When Ji Chang-wook finally stops running away from the fact that he’s wasted around four months of his life (fresh-out-of-the-military life) on the absolute disaster of a drama.

    he wasted his time before the military as well with k2..suspicious was also just ok

      The K2 at least was demanding in some way, with all the action scenes and fast-paced action. And Suspicious Partner, while it was nothing spectacular, had a nice story that was actually executed well, had a ton of awesome supporting characters, and most importantly Wookie clearly had fun while shooting it. So I wouldn’t call either of them a waste of time, since they are still more enjoyable than this nightmare.

        So he’s just being pretty in this drama? Fortunately I dodged this one.

Dedicating this song to Nokdu and Dong-ju, because they really need to learn to tell the truth. Would make all this drama a lot less… dramatic.

(Btw, I love this song. Taemin can do no wrong 😍)

What a cute and enjoyable story it was! I think it’s the first drama I’ve watched that had so little conflict, and you can imagine how cool that was. It was just our leads figuring out their relationship, and I loved every minute of their (at times) awkward and (overwhelmingly) adorable journey.
