Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

House on Wheels is back. Didn’t realize how much I missed the comedy styling of Dong Il and Hee Won.

See You After Quarantine? is adorable. It has me all up in my feelings watching a couple get to know each other over Zoom.

So I watched the 1 ep of Beyond Evil and….it made me wanna rewatch The Good Detective. Beyond Evil can be good, but will it be The Good Detective good.

The casting of Hospital Playlist is pitch perfect. From the main down to the supporting, all the way to the bit players. Not one wrong turn. Gonna be sad when this one ends.

A clip from Pegasus Market randomly showed up in my YouTube timeline.

I think that series is due for another rewatch.

Hometown. HE POLICED WHAT HYE JIN WAS WEARING. ARE YOU KIDDING ME???

3

    She’s trying to open a clinic in a town full of elderly people. He said himself that she’s right, it shouldn’t matter what she wears, but she already shot herself in the foot and even something as little as that can make a difference when she’s literally not getting any patients coming in her door. He wasn’t saying “You shouldn’t be wearing that outfit because it makes you look (insert whatever degrading term you want)”, he was saying “The grannies in town think the dentist goes running in her underwear so it might be a good idea to wear something else if you want to win them back” (which she does). I didn’t have much of a problem with it TBH. It was fine in context.

    If it wasn’t directly related to her main problem of finding potential patients it would be a different story.

      He the wrong messenger because he has been a douche to her since he met her.

      I actually read this lot of postings before I started watching Ep 1 and 2. Agreed wholeheartedly with Mindy’s take. I’d never see him as policing what she wears but giving her well-meaning and practical advice if she and her business were to survive.

    What he was trying to say was that when you are in Rome you should behave like Romans, and not expect Rome to be adapted to your lifestyle.

Hometown. Hye Jin wasn’t gonna stand a chance in town. No one reads the room on her and Du sik got a lot of nerve.

    Yep I’m in the unpopular opinion camp on this one. I like Shin Min-ah and the seaside setting, but the ML feels outdated with his rudeness.

      Yes. And for him liking her, he sure wants to change her. There is nothing wrong with her wanting to set up a dentistry there, she can supply something that is needed. Hye Jin is reserved and she was never out and out rude to people’s face when she was there ( I felt so bad for her phone call being made public. She was just venting to a friend. And how she handled it with Yoon, on her own by the way, showed she knows where she needs to improve). I will be in her camp because I just like her and while it will need to adapt to her new environment, she doesn’t need to be the town busy body like Du sik.

        Agreed, as an introvert I’d be quite upset if I was in her shoes (not that I can afford those heh). I’ll be dropping this one since romcoms are only really as strong as their leads’ relationship.

Hometown. I so don’t want Hye Jin and Du sik to be the end game. He was nothing but a prick to her for some reason and this ain’t preschool. And if he has her other shoe, imma be pissed.

Hometown Cha Cha Cha.

Hye Jin is not the problem townspeople. She is who she is, a educated professional dentist.

Kdrama gotta kdrama with the patriarchy.

    I just watched the first ep and will try the next, but yes was bothered that it seems to be leaning towards the ML teaching Hye Jin lessons. Also that he’d noticed her from the beginning and likes her, but then acts aloof to her when he is friendly with everyone. I really liked her and the bright feel and colors of the show. Could really use just a happy rom com set in a pretty setting with fun characters.

      Lesson???

      I get it Beverly but she is a grown ass woman who was trying to ask for help when she is not use to doing so.

      Her crime was visiting a beach in that town for her mother’s memorial and getting lost in her thoughts. And then just a little bad luck.

        100% agree.

        It bugged me that it seemed he wanted her to learn the value of hard work or the value of money earned by having her clean squid for the day, especially when as you say she was just hit with bad luck.

          And the woman is a dentist. She has a job, she works for it and is good at it.

          It’s not like she is a heiress just spending her family money and being a out and out douchebag.

I watched a full ep of Knowing Bros. for the 1st time in a long time. The National Fencing Team owned that episode. They were charming and funny and it all worked.

The Devil Judge, ep 1.

I gave it 17 minutes before shutting it off. At that point you will know why.

    I got curious about what you meant by this post, so I went an checked out the first little bit of this show (which I never intended on watching anyway). Let me just say: LMFAO!

        During the trailers, the minute I saw that Jisung’s judicial robes resembled a papal cassock and Jinyoung’s resembled a cardinal’s cassock, I knew this show wasn’t for me.

Hospital Playlist, ep 1.

    I felt so bad for her. I have nothing against Seok Hyung but she deserves a guy who reciprocates her feelings.

      And he did tell her. But this aspect is starting to have her question her job as a doctor and it shouldn’t be like that. The phone call thing was not that big of a deal and she was so deflated and I hated seeing her like that.

        From the patient’s perspective, it WAS a big deal. She was literally in the process of telling Min-Ah how uncomfortable being in this position (legs spread out wide, exposed and with a room full of people) , and bam! Min-Ah has a full fledged cellphone conversation “between this poor woman’s legs”!!!!
        I was SOOO puzzled, I could hardly believe this was happening for real. So yes, it’s not the end of the world, but I really felt so bad for the patient!

          I thought it was because the patient head that phone conversation and saw Min ha’s reaction.

So BTS has put together a learning Korean kit to sell.

It is really well done and damn it to hell, I am considering it.

Didn’t even clicked with me until now that the reason the older ones didn’t enlist last year is because Big Hit IPO hit the stock market and that deal with Universal Music was still being finalized. With this group, with one gone, that makes a huge difference. This story is a pipe dream, but it is not the worst idea. But when you have a music act that is a GDP for a country, how is this going to work?

    And here I am, a simple 2PM fan who’s been waiting five years for them to be together again… And yes, I know BTS is another league, but… gosh…

      I still stand by the government pulling the cord and waiving all of them. That extension was just a tester to reaction.

      There is just too much damn money on the table.

        IMO if athletes can be exempted for winning medals so can BTS. I don’t know that the government will actually do it though or that BTS members would want them to. Their global fans wouldn’t care but a lot of Koreans would.

          They need tobe atleast olympic bronze medalist or asian games winner. Did BTS win grammy? And with the same sentiment, an actor who win an oscar can get exempted too. 🤷‍♀️

    I initllay thought that enlisting together will decrease the time they are not complete to 2 years (vs. ~6years) but that will stop their momentum. Either should be fine but they should serve, not this waiver nonsense.

So I learned through a celebrity whose social media account I follow that BTS has a animated short. The celebrity got her 2 YO a stuffed animal of her favorite. They coming for toddlers, y’all.

Vincenzo ep 13. I was half right about Cho. I really looked at it from the money aspect.

So I watched that Let’s BTS talk special.

I get it now. I get why they are so damn popular and have any and all kinds of fans. This isn’t a act for them, they are genuinely…genuine.

      Depends on the interview in any country. I’ve seen some superficial interviews in both of those countries and seen in depth in America. Most big network interviews in the US are superficial.

      It saddens me to say this, but their Fallon interviews are their best because he had a long enough segment and it was out of the studio.

      As much as I hate Fallon, he faired better because it was not a three minute segment with a very clear language barrier.

      @Black Swan You might be interested in watching BTS’s interview on the Zack Sang Show. Zack has interviewed other Kpop groups/stars he always asks very thoughtful and thorough questions.

Vincenzo, ep 12. I…don’t blame Cho one bit. Vincenzo really dropped the ball. It was never always about him and he made it that way.

I cannot believe they jumped the shark with Cha young’s. I guess anything to justify her and Vincenzo becoming a criminal couple together.

    That wasn’t the only part I didn’t like about the episode.

    I think we should remember that she was never a rightful lawyer as she worked at Wusang being fateful to money, and when we meet her we saw her use manipulation as one of her tools. Therefor her and her father have many argument about their different beliefs. When she said in a kinda joke way that she is not righteous lawyer but angry after her father passed away sum up her character motivation.
    When Yu-chan mention monster fight monster for justice tells the tone for the drama. I belive the point making is that you need to get your hands dirty to play against the villain to bring Justice.
    They clearly play on a thin line with our two leads.

      Exactly. The only differences is now she’s fighting for the side of justice and not for money sucking, innocent people killing Wusang/Babel.

      He was clearly speak about Vincenzo and possibly himself.

      Cha young was a gray character and for all her immoral behavior, she would never go as far as to physically hurt or kill someone. That is why Joon woo was so fustrated that she would not return to Wusung or he could never get a read on her. Her doing that with the car is and was out of her character.
