Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

Went for a stroll down the Cheonggyecheon today and couldn’t help but think of our Brahms OTP. Sadly there were no Joon Youngs for me, but at least Monday is not far away now.

Can these two be anymore adorable?

I like how Min Jae speaks banmal to Eun Bin because it shows that they are comfortable with each other.

Also the extended dialogue was cute, so I translated it for you Beanies.

JY: Do you like talking walks, Song Ah?
SA: Yes, of course.
JY: It’s nice to be in Korea and to walk with someone for the first time.

Although I need to actually rewatch yesterday’s episode again with English subs to make sure I didn’t misunderstand half of the Korean that I heard…

…one thing that resonated with me was Song Ah’s emotions and the realisation she had when she discovered her feelings towards Joon Young, along with her brave confession. Props to Park Eun Bin for such a realistic portrayal of that emotional process because it really hit a spot in my heart and reminded me of something that I have personally experienced.

I don’t know about you guys, but I honestly feel that with age, it’s getting harder and harder to meet people, or at least genuine people. So when you do finally meet someone who somehow “gets” you, who shares the same ideals/thoughts…a person who makes you feel comfortable to be around…a person who allows you to be yourself…someone who also goes out their way to care for you and helps support your dreams…it’s hard not to catch feelings. But then when what was considered just a mere friendship turns into something more in your head, that’s when the inner turmoil begins.

All the “What if…” scenarios start running inside your mind. You get confused and keep reading into signs. You want to know more about them and feel like you are, but at the same time, you get frustrated because you don’t. You start getting insecure and unsure of yourself. You get jealous when you see them with other people. But deep down, you know you have no right to question any of it because you are “just a friend”. Song Ah telling Joon Young that she doesn’t want to be that kind of friend anymore made so much sense to me, because she also realised that she wanted more from their relationship. Also the scenes with Song Ah looking at the “read” message, worried about Joon Young and wanting to check up on him, typing a comment but only to delete it in the end, they were all so relatable and done countless times by me to the person I liked.

The line from Hae Na (the other intern) “If they really like you, you shouldn’t be confused.” I’ve heard this so many times from the people around me and I can only partially agree. To me, liking someone will always be a little daunting and confusing due to my own insecurities but maybe it is true and I’ve yet to meet the right person. For Song Ah, it is clear she lacks confidence in herself, because she’s always been belittled about her violin skills and her life choices. There is nothing wrong with going after your dreams, yet poor girl has to be put down by people around her, even her family. So her lack of confidence triggers the confusion on whether Joon Young and her are or can be a thing.

This brings us to the confession…and for anyone who has confessed to the person they like, you would know how nerve wracking that is which is why I always say, confessing is such a brave thing because it takes a lot of courage in doing so. From that scene, you can tell and feel all the struggles and conflicted emotions that Song Ah has. She might not know Joon Young as well as Jung Kyung (wish I didn’t have to mention her) or Hyun Ho, but there is a mutual understanding between them which is why they clicked, so I also think she understands the burden of her confession.

In real life, sadly my confessions have never worked out but I know at least I can be hopeful in knowing that our OTPs will eventually end up together. Bring on Monday.

    Yes to everything. Park Eun-bin nailed the emotions from the moment JY called her name to the confession, I was with Song-ah every step of the way.

      Some people said the confession was too soon, whilst others said they had wished for Joon Young to confess first. I actually thought it was quite fitting that Song Ah did it when she did. I mean after ending her secret crush after all those years, I think she realises to not wait. She also seems to be the type that’s willing to take the risk, as she did say “I rather be hurt than be made a fool.” I think Joon Young’s sweet gestures made her confused about her own feelings and thereby making her feel like an idiot so she just went with it, knowing full well she might get rejected and hurt.

        Maybe, it was too soon. But I’m with you though. With her previous crush, she knew how it was gonna end but decided not to face it because friendship (2 friends) was involved and her memories with them. I really consider Song Ah as a risk taker, especially if she knows that her actions will only affect her. Taking violin and facing the criticisms from family, friends, profs basically everyone else. Which makes sense that she confessed, despite me wanting Joon-young to do it first.

        I love her and will cheer for her every step of the way!

        3
        2

          Yes I agree. Song Ah really isn’t as weak as people see her. I mean, it’s easy to just follow the social norms and do what everyone else is doing. But to go against the norm and pursue something that you have passion for whilst the world goes against you? That takes strength and our girl sure has it.

          Maybe we can hope for a double confession? Hahaha…it’s not about who did what first but more about them having mutual feelings. Song Ah confesses first, but perhaps Joon Young will be the first to take action on other things *cough cough*

          Let’s have our fingers crossed for some lighter and less Jung Kyung oriented scenes on Monday/Tuesday.

          1

    “with age, itโ€™s getting harder and harder to meet people, or at least genuine people”

    Truer words were never spoken. I’m in my 30s but the people around me have been my friends since elementary, high school, and univ. The new people I met here were mere acquaintances. People I occasionally meet because society states so. That’s also why I’m happier spending a lot of time online (in DB and elsewhere) because they’re people who “get” me and my love for dramas.

    10
    1

      I’m also in my 30s and as great as it is to meet new people or “putting myself out there”, it can actually get quite tedious and tiring, especially when people are clearly making small talk just for the sake of it. I also dislike how society states how we must be or tells us to fit into the norms, because as lovely it’s to see my friends and people around me getting married or having kids or starting their business…etc, that is not the path that I am on and I’m okay with it. If you’re happy with how you’re living your life, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. And like you said, you always have us Beanies to spend your happy days with ^ ^

    Ditto! I was so amazed how IRL Song-Ah’s been portrayed by Park Eun Bin! You said it. I’ve been there (maybe we all were) – reading signs from the other, doubting if ever the other party’s interested. Then insecurities come in – gosh! She.Nailed.It. <3
    That build-up for SA's confession was greatly done. She went from "OK-NO ITS NOT OK-OK FINE" is basically how we girls (yes, ladies if you wish ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) always felt whenever we had a hard time keeping to ourselves how we LIKE/LOVE the one. Rooting for this girl so much! And praying that when we, beanies, reached our time to confess, we'll do it like SA ๐Ÿ™‚

    5

      hahahaha and hopefully we’ll get our own happy endings because at the end of the day, we are the main leads of our own life.

Well I don’t know about the rest of you Beanies, but I don’t know what to say except my heart hurts from all these emotions. How are we suppose to wait a week again?

Loving this drama so much that I think I’m over-analysing everything, but I swear there are scenes in this MV that look like cut/extended scenes from previous episodes, like at 1:03…

Who else nearly didn’t survive yesterday’s episode because of the cuteness overload from our Brahms OTP?

Whilst watching this scene, I couldn’t help but notice Joon Young and Song Ah’s text interaction. It’s clear that they have been messaging for a while and honestly, I had to translate and share with you beanies.

JY = White, SA = Yellow

JY: [first few words were cut off] I went to the rehearsal room.
SA: Wow. Even on the weekend, it seems you are working hard.
JY: It’s nothing. Lol. Well anyway, after practise ends in a bit, I will contact you when I’m heading home!
SA: Ah ok ok! Good luck with your practise.
JY: Song Ah, are you home?

      Even if not, it’s clear that they are comfortable with each other. Hehehe…I’m hoping after Song Ah tells him that she doesn’t want to be “just friends” today that they will move onto dating. LOL but shall wait and see how the episode unfolds and whether Jung Kyung does any sabotaging.

      Like I really don’t mind if we cut out all the side characters and have a whole hour of them. I’m sure there is even cut scenes to use, since I noticed in the Taeyeon ost MV that there was so extended parts from previous episodes.

        I agree! Itโ€™s been forever since I played the violin but Songahโ€™s and Hyunhoโ€™s playing seems real to me! The detail of Songah tightened her bow and put resin on in ep 3 (I think) was on point and seemed super natural.

          I also use to play the piano and know how much practise is needed to perform a song well, so it’s really impressive to see them so dedicated to showing us the real side of their acting.

I know a lot of Beanies are interested in getting the books that were in IOTNBO, so I did some research and it seems Gmarket Global is currently selling the โ€œThe Boy Who Fed On Nightmaresโ€, โ€œZombie Kidโ€, โ€œThe Cheerful Dogโ€ and “The Hand, The Monkfish” as a set. The last book “Finding The Real Face” that was in yesterdayโ€™s chapter is not released until the 31st August, but I’m assuming if you wait a while, you could get all 5 together.

Hereโ€™s the link for the set of 4 for those who need it: http://global.gmarket.co.kr/item?goodsCode=1837181889

HAPPY READING!!

    I loved this scene. In fact when she was walking away from him I shouted at the TV: “sanranghae” tell her!!! hahahaha.
    The half smile in MY’s face at the end of the scene made me believe she was about to change her mind ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I kind of expected him to tell her that he loved her but when she turned back around and walked away, I wasn’t fully expecting him to repeat her words. hahaha it was cute.

    Did you predict it? I am curious how many were able to predict the parallelism

    I could only after she turned around.. this was such a wonderful surprise scene

      Me too…because when she turned to face him, I was like “Yes, those words that she once said to him are now reversed and holds meaning and therefore it works.” But then she turned back around and walked away which I didn’t expect and of course the rest was just well played. *claps at the director and writer*

      I actually predicted it, just before he said Saranghae. I even recited MY’s words and tone from way before. Got a bit disappointed at first when his sounded too calm. Clapped when he followed suit. Hahaha

        ha ha.. in today’s ep 16 scene.. when ST asked GT if he is having fun on camping..i was half hoping for a comedy scene on them asking him to stop..but well!!..

So TVN pretty much confirmed that Nurse Park is the Do Hui Jae aka “Mummy dearest” in the BTS video and this video title.

Not going to lie, but I definitely preferred it when “mum” was this mysterious dark force that was haunting us from the dead. I’m kind of half hoping that this is just a decoy to trick us into believing she is mum, then BAM, there will be another plot twist. But we are also going into the final episodes…how will show resolve this?

    If she’s Mom, that will be the mother (hur hur) of loopholes.
