Beanie level: Noble idiot

Link episode 9

Then again i shouldn’t be here but
Moon Gayoung looks so lovable in this episode. I realized it a bit late
Gyehoon is so lucky to have a friend like Jinho. I can only hope he’s not associated with the bad guy
Melomance’s song at the end…

But i prefer a warm, tight hug thooooo

I think ep 8 of Link is the best episode so far. We are closer to the truth.
Still not feeling the romance (but i saw something interesting from the preview, my wish comes true?👀). I enjoy to see everyone’s interactions, Dahyun being more brave and getting the support she needs from her family

These dramas. They want us to believe we can come to realization that we have romantic feelings for someone by watching them sleeping

I really like Link so far. It\’s absurd but also delightful. I can watch our leads all day even though i\’m not convinced with their romance yet.
But now that the stalker is back… i don\’t know. I don\’t like it, still creeps me out. I don\’t enjoy scenes with his sister too. I prefer to find out more about our nosy neighborhood and their stories

    I’m creeped out by the stalker, but also intrigued as to what’s going to happen. He murdered that (decomposed) girl in his apartment, right? I want justice!!
    (I also want his sister to realise what a nasty piece of work he is)

      yes he did. and yes i also think his sister doesn’t know what kind of person he is. i hope the drama will resolve it well cos i don’t want to see more stalking scenes

Honestly, watching Yumi\’s Cells 2 makes me feel jealous of Yumi. It\’s been a long time i have romantic feelings for someone and i have never fallen in love. It can be very tiring but what does it feel like?

    To quote the old classic Deteriorata
    “Fall not in love therefore, it will stick to your face”.

    (It’s on Youtube)

      I’ve been searching the meaning of those words but i can’t find it😂
      I don’t understand the “it will stick to your face” part
      Can you explain to me? I’ll be very grateful

    giddy. just dont fall for a narcissist they are horrible and will drain you
    falling in love is nothing, keeping the love even when not everything is as perfect is you thought, that´s hard work. you really gotta be sure what you want and get through mental battles.
    but it is possible.
    it is harder to become life long ride or die friends. so often people just disappear 🙁 falling in love it is easy to forget the people who value you with no expectations. you gotta fall in love with all your friends as humans and individuals, too. appreciate every persons uniqueness.

      Ah, you’re right. Falling in love is relatively easy but keeping the love, having commitment to it is hard.
      I am still trying to find out what i want in life, what kind of person i am, and if one day i decided to fall in love, with whom i want it to be… and i’m still not so fond of myself too…
      I still have a lot of work to do (figuring things out) before going there
      Thank you for your advice. I was actually hesitant to post this thoughts but it feels really nice to talk about this and to be vulnarable sometimes

    Falling in love is not tiring when you fall for the right one. When you have to maintain facade and can’t be yourself, then that is not the right person for you. I knew my husband was ‘The One’ for me when I felt a sense of contentment and inner peace I never had before.

      I second this. I have heard this many times. I used to mistakenly believe that pretending to be fine at first (when “at first” can turn to months or years) in front of person you like for the sake of the relationship is okay.
      It’s so wrong and I learned it the hard way.
      I’m glad you have found the one. I hope one day i’ll fine the one too

    It feels like the first 7 episodes of Pretty Noona. Did you watch that? That show conveyed it perfectly. I don’t think Yumi is really in love with Babi though. At least not yet. He’s just swept her off her feet with his directness. I’m with her love cell—she was attacked and bowed down to peer pressure. But I still love Babi, or maybe it’s just this soft spot I have for Jinyoung. My husband makes light of the fact that I live my life with check boxes and he checked all the ones that were the most important to me. I’m very pragmatic and it wasn’t love at first sight between me and him. I had to get to know him for months before we even started dating. This is why I think that some people can be with more than one person in their life. You just have to find one, though, that you think you could spend the rest of your life with and that losing them from your life would be a detriment to you and them.

      I have seen videos from youtube but have not watch the drama.
      Yes and also maybe Yumi likes to be adored by someone? Does that make sense?
      If Babi didn’t come and confess to her, maybe she’s still trying to get back to Woong now.
      I want to like Babi too but seeing him trying to be perfect and understanding, and also we don’t know what kind of person he really is, really bothers me.

      I’m just like you. I don’t believe in love at first sight and it usually takes months for me to realize that i really like someone.
      Maybe i should have my own check boxes too?😂

      It’s nice to know your story with your husband. And thank you for your advice, Ally

But this news is….haaaaaa
After Sisyphus, i thought Cho Seungwoo will pick a decent project but he chose this… the synopsis sounds makjang and i don’t like the writer
Soooo i think his character had a terrible divorce thus he decided to become a divorce lawy… a pianist divorce lawyer. Yes yes.
So i guess he’ll play classical music everytime someone comes to him to get a divorce

    How does this writer keep getting big name actors in her dramas? I know her dramas have gotten good ratings because of the big names, but that doesn’t mean they were good.

    My response:

    For a brief moment, I was thinking you were going to say we were in safe hands working together with the writer.. 😅

    And we already emphasize with CSW for his choosing this role already.. oh wait .. wasn’t that what you were saying? 😂

    Anyway, I think there are 2 logical reasons for this choosing of his:

    1. The premise really intrigued him; if the reason is 1 for whatever reason, go to 2.
    2. He has become the second Ji Chang-wook.

I miss NJTTW so much so i\’m watching their spin offs now. Spring Camp for now and Kang\’s Kitchen next.

Spring Camp is such a delightful show. I forget how good and funny it is. The food is awesome and their bond is special. It makes me want to go camping too. Something i haven\’t done in decades.
I also forget that Kang Hodong eats a lot in Spring Camp. He ate 6 portions of food in one sitting, tried to keep adding rice/noodles/water to his food so he can resume his eating, treated kimchi fried rice as finishing touches(?) to feel refreshed(?) so he can sleep😂
Some people may not like Kang Hodong but you have to admit he made Spring Camp interesting with his mukbang show

I know i said that i want to avoid thriller elements in drama for now but… i decided to dive in and watch Link. Just finished ep 3 and i have to push back watching In Time With You (i\’m screwed. I hope i\’ll be fine)
Link was never on my radar. But YJG and MGY acting and chemistry are enough to make me interested. They are too good.

The reason why it wasn\’t on my radar is because it has a little bit of everything, and i usually don\’t like that (with Healer being the only exception). Trying too hard?

The drama is pretty light so far despite having the word \”Kill\” in its title. It still reminds me to Beyond Evil. I like how the drama tries to naturally bring the leads closer.
I think we pretty much know how these things happened in the drama. We only need to know who and why

Business Proposal also change my view about Ahn Hyoseob (i hope i spell his name right). I first saw him in Abyss and even though Abyss itself is not a good drama, AHS wasn\’t good in it. Especially with Park Boyoung as his partner…

But he looks so comfortable and in his zone(?) with Business Proposal. I can imagine him enjoying his role though i don\’t know if he did any adlibs (did he?)
I hope he will get more good projects

    Just saw your post. Speaking for myself (and probably a bunch of others) I first saw Ahn Hyo-seop and became a fan after his performance as nephew Chan in THIRTY BUT SEVENTEEN (2018) (Viki US). Highly recommended. I skipped ABYSS and RED SKY but enjoyed his performances in DR. ROMANTIC 2 and BUSINESS PROPOSAL.

Finally finishing Business Proposal!

I have unique experience with this drama. I watched this drama when it airs and joined group watch from episode 7 cos everyone was talking about it and i can\’t wait to join the conversation. I was pessimistic about it knowing my history with romcoms and i wasn\’t as excited as others. It was good but hmm…
And then i started to watch from ep 1 this week. I enjoyed it and i wish it was a 16 episode drama! Samantha and Rachel should no longer be sad now😊

Also back then, i was having a crush on Sunghoon. I thought he was swoony especially in the scene where he took off his glasses
He is still swoony, but after i rewatch this drama i find Taemoo to be so endearing. I envy his self-aware, his confidence, and honesty.
He is now competing with Yihyun (Happiness) for best partner in kdrama for me🤭

Even though there are still many scene that made me cringe, i\’m still enjoying it.
I wish there are more old school romcom that utilises cliches and tropes but also having fun with them.

I watched 2 episodes of Link today
It kind of reminds me of Beyond Evil? Or maybe kdramaworld wants to remind me to finish that drama asap?

But for me Link is… weird?
Personally i don\’t find it fair that only the male lead is able to feel what the other person feels and it doesn\’t happen other way
And the stalker plot freaks me out. It\’s so uncomfortable and that\’s why i\’ve been away from thriller dramas. I was not ready for that…

And Yeo Jingoo has a really handsome voice

Because of youtube recommendation, i just remembered i have watched a drama called “The Time We Were Not In Love”
I didn’t remember the story, but watching some clips made me recall what i felt back then. I don’t think i considered this drama good so i wonder how can i finished this drama

          I have no idea The time we were not in love is a remake from that drama heol!
          I’m curious. I’ll definitely watch the tw version!

A bit OOT cos i\’m on a drama slump (again), i decided to watch \”Wonder\” which has sensitive topics therefore i\’ve been avoiding it for years, until now.
I just want to have a good cry and left. I can\’t express myself well so for me to have days when i can cry easily is essential(?)
And in just 12 minutes, i already cried so much.
I\’m screwed.

I\’m not fine but I hope i don\’t drown in sadness for long.

    I have not heard of this drama and can’t find it does it have another name? What genre is it?

      Hello, nice to meet you!
      It’s not a drama, it’s a movie
      Here’s the link if you want to know more
      https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonder_(film)

      Thank you! I actually haven’t finished recent dramas like Through the Darkness and Snowdrop. I also have to watch 2521 and Business Proposal from the beginning to get my beans since i watched both dramas from the middle(?)😂
      I cheated cos everyone was talking about both dramas at that time, i got curious, but i was impatient so i watched from ep 7 and 10 respectively

      1
      1

        I heard of that film thanks for the info.
        Sounds like you have enough dramas to watch is it more about not being interested in the ones on your list rather than you can’t find anything to watch?

        3

          More like i’m too lazy to continue cos i missed the timing🥲
          It’s hard to pick up the drama when you suddenly drop in the middle
          That’s for Beyond Evil and Through the Darkness. There was time TTD didn’t air for 3 weeks and that’s how i missed the timing.
          For Beyond Evil, i binge watched the drama when i got sick for days. Then i couldn’t find time to continue.

          For Snowdrop, i’m at the point that i hate watch it. But i’ll try to watch last 3 episodes this weekend to earn my bean.

          For 2521 and ABP, it’s complicated… both dramas are nice but i don’t have any motivation to start watching again

          1
          1

            As we are 6 months into the year is it worth you cutting your losses and starting from scratch with the new dramas and earn your beans that way and accept that this year your bean count is lower than you would like. We have to focus on self care these days more than ever so if something is not working for you at the moment it sounds like you would benefit from being kind to yourself and having some space. Do you watch dramas for fun or is it part of your job?

          Actually there is no new dramas i interested in. I’m planning to watch first 2 episodes of Lee Jongsuk’s new drama to support him.
          Oh i’m also planning to try watching Jung Somin’s new drama. The hong sisters’ drama that i don’t remember what the title is… that will be my first hong sister drama

          As this is my first year joining db, i don’t mind if i don’t have many beans

            I only joined Dramabeans a month ago so I am learning the system too. You don’t seem able to respond with a message to a reply if it was a response to a reply so you have to go to the original message in the chain and reply there then it will get put into the chain. It took a while for me to work that out.

            My bean count will be low as there are a lot of thriller or ghost dramas that I don’t watch and a couple that have been a bit disappointing so I will watch when they finish airing so I can binge and go.

            Seriously, it threw me too especially when I had to reply to my own message but then it would end up in the right place. I don’t get why the reply is always typed out at the top of the message chain and then gets filed at the bottom. It would be much easier if it was in the place you needed it to be.

            To do this part two about the thrillers I had to reply to your message again and it typed it above the message about the message chain but hopefully when I press reply it will be under it.

            I can’t handle thrillers but there seem to be a few out at the moment Doctor Lawyer, Eat Love Kill, Why her some are mixed genres with fantasy so may not be thrilling enough for you. Are you watching Kiss Sixth sense as I think that has some thriller elements too?

            @reply1988 i don’t know if i’m doing this right or not… if not then i’m sorry for my poor comprehension skills…

            I used to handle thrillers really well but i think i’m not feeling really good since years ago that most of times i have to switch to another genre.

            I haven’t checked out Kiss Sixth Sense. It has thriller elements too?
            Then i’m probably going to skip even though i’m a Seo Jihye fan🥲

            I hope you find a drama with the right mix. I think our tastes change according to our circumstances so it may be good to stay away from the thriller element for the time being.

        I follow the cloud appreciation society on Instagram and I am constantly looking for beautiful skies in nature shots. My dream is to have the ability to blink to capture the gorgeous sky scenes that only appear when I am driving and have no way of taking a photo.
        It’s a shame but the cloud appreciation photos are usually taken by amateurs who don’t have the high quality equipment to capture the clouds in all their glory.

          It’s also one of my dream to be able to capture pretty sky with my own hands… but unfortunately i’m an amateur myself so i often disappointed with the results🥲
          Few months ago i put a sunset photo i took myself on my fanwall. Not sure if it can be considered good, but that’s the best i can do

            I hope that you can achieve your goal soon and get that amazing shot. I am often disappointed that the phone camera can not replicate the colours so pinks come out as a random orange colour.

      If you have seen his older interviews, you will see that this is much better. He was still shy but he talked a lot. He used to give short answers for his interviews (except when he critized himself), so this is an improvement
