Beanie level: Loan shark with a heart of gold

Someone please let me know when Seo Ji hoon gets to be an actual lead in a drama where he actually “gets the girl” (or even the boy…). And Mama Fairy doesn’t count.

    1) Matching Boys’ Archery: Doesn’t get the boy
    2)Flower Crew: gave the girl the piggyback first, a sure trope for the OTP, but no. Ends up with nothing. She didn’t deserve him anyway.
    3)Meow: the Secret Boy: sticks with her thru thick and thin. She ends up with the cat. (Ew) She didn’t deserve him anyway.
    4)Mama Fairy: Ok, he ends up being her husband, but the tease all the way thru was the other guy, so fans were really mad so does that even count?
    5) Latest one, Men Are Men. Once again, he loves her and sticks by her, but she ends up with the other guy. She didn’t think she deserved him anyway. TBH, I haven’t watched the last episode yet, but I did see a photo of a wedding gown on said female, in a wedding. We’ll see.
    Please, you’re old enough now to be a lead who gets the girl, or boy, I don’t really care which.

      #5 oops, meant I didn’t think she deserved him anyway.

      I was fine with Flower Crew but I also knew who the endgame was from the beginning. Seo Ji Hoon has a ton of charisma and I agree he should be a first lead.

Apparently puffy shoulder sleeves are in this year, in kdrama land.

    It reminds me Anne of the Green Gables and her desire to have a dress with puffy sleeves.

I have this feeling that I should find out how to download my favorite C-dramas before Trump bans them.

This skit from their fanmeet in Bangkok is absolutely adorable, even if I’ve no clue what they’re singing:

    Aww this is cute 🥰🥰
    It’s also giving me heavy flower boys feel a la “Boys Over Flowers” for some reason 😂😂😂😂

    Sigh now you’re making me want to search up KissBoysTH material on YouTube 😅😅 KissBoysTH was a special project boy group comprised of some of the male cast from “WHY R U?” after they had finished filming the series

Re: the drama BORN AGAIN: Well, well…this drama is turning out to be quite interesting and intriguing. What use is reincarnation if you just live the same life over and over? Redemption?

    I still haven’t seen this Special Edition. I will probably eventually watch it but will be awhile down the road. Did you like it?

      Loved it. With the exception there were some favorite minor details left out, but there was also some nice addded details. And the ending of the Special Edition was so much better and made so much more sense. I only just found the Special Edition clips which are just around 5 minute clips from the Special Edition episodes. What’s nice about those is it’s only scenes with Wei Ying and Lan Zhan.

Nice article on one reason we like these particular actors (their voice):

    Yes, but I miss my two favorite voices of all: Han Suk Kyu and Lee Sun Kyun.
    I would also have appreciated to see Cho Seung Woo.

      Is it even a list about voices when it doesn’t mention these three actors lol? But I read and seems like the writer likes mid/medium tone voices which are neither that low nor high unlike the low, husky, beautiful voices of these three celebs. I clearly like the low voices.

        It’s the quality and richness of the voices I prefer. I don’t usually like the lowest voices. There’s one Chinese actor/singer whose tonal quality is so rich when he sings, I just melt. It’s Xiao Zhan of Untamed fame. I have a couple of his songs on my fan page somewhere.

        Yes, missing my favorite low voices.

    Really like Yoo Ah-in and Woo Do-hwan’s deep voices. Also find Yang Se-jong’s voice very sweet (not only his voice, he gives off a sweet vibe)

      Yes to YSJ!! And from that list I also liked LMH and Jang Ki Yong.
      Regarding Gong Yoo… well… not only his voice…

      Agree on Woo Do-hwan. It is interesting they mention LMH because he does have a distinct voice but to me it always sounds dry.
      I like Hyun Bin’s voice alot. With Gong Yoo I dont know if I like his voice or just like listening to him and watching him speak.

      Also, there was an actor in Go Go Squied who played Little Mi and I really liked his voice.

MEOW: My take on the ending (spoilers are in the reply)

1

    It wasn’t the “happy ending” people thought, i.e. he changes to a human forever. She had said in previous scenes she just wanted to see him one more time as a human. So he appeared one more time and that was the ending. So people thought he stayed as a human boy forever (No!)
    But throughout the series we were told, with even a physical example (the old cat/lady who aged but her true love didn’t) that the more he changed to a human, the longer he had to stay as a cat and the shorter his whole lifespan. In the end it was two years before he could be a boy again. I think the drama ended midpoint so fans could have their happy ending (before tragedy struck, which could be the 2nd volume).
    Poor Seo JH, he still waited for her after all that time. She told him she’d rather have the cat…but he gave her flowers, was always there when she needed him. She’s an idiot. But perhaps after a few more years she’ll come around. Or he’s an idiot, poor guy. The next web novel should be his story.
    This is all my opinion, my musings, my fanfic outline, what I saw.

MEOW: My fav scene: the 2 male leads more-than-bromance hugging (in my imagination). Cheesiest line: \”I won\’t leave you. I\’ll stay with you…as a cat\”. Tears follow. Now to see the last 20 min

MEOW ending: Totally predictable, made no sense whatsoever, no explanation, except we\’ve seen these nonsensical endings before. Total fanservice. When will Seo Ji hoon get a lead in a decent drama?

Another bizarre drama? Born Again: No actual spoilers but ep 6 – does she have a fetish for corpses? she\’s all touchy, feely with it. Going a bit supernatural, are we?

    So far, all three main leads are just – weird. Perhaps none of them should ever be reincarnated again. Or is this a “healing” drama??

    I understand being respectful towards the dead but her behavior is a little ridiculous. I keep watching because this show has become my crack drama.

    Bizarre is one way to put it. This drama is all sorts of bad. I wonder if it was done on purpose. It had to have been, LOL!

    I hate it when that happens. In one epsiode it goes from a show you loved to a show you hate.

    I totally understand you.
    Also, when you are following several shows a week you love and they end and… you try two, three, four… new ones, and it doesn’t work…

    I was binging something last year, maybe, and I think the binge lulled me into some fever-state where I thought it was better than it was? Because I went to bed that night and eagerly went to start my binge the next morning and I. HATED. EVERY. single character. I hated them. I tried again the next day and only managed to finish the drama with a heavy use of the ff button!

So: in about a month a Viki original is airing – a kdrama called \”Where Your Eyes Linger\” (don\’t know how the hangul reads). But, it\’s a BL drama – wow! As in, real BL, not just bromance.

    Soompi put out an article about it earlier this week!! It’s under “Trending” 😅 Usually I’d just link it, but Dramabeans hasn’t been letting me share links to articles lately 🤔🤔

      Oh, noes! Can’t share links? Boo! I’ll check out Soompi cuz right now all I’m really liking are BL things.

      Thanks for the mention – I found the article, but…8 episodes only 10 minutes each?? That’s disappointing, though I guess it’s a start.

        Online BL dramas are typically shorter and use a different format than mainstream tv broadcast dramas 😅😅
        But yes!! Definitely a start!!

        Another online BL drama that I finished recently—a Taiwan BL drama— also has the same format… 10 episodes, about 15-20 minutes per episode, check it out if you want 😉😉 It’s titled “Because Of You 2020”— also available on Viki or on k i s s a s i a n

          Ha, ha – yes I watched those episodes as they came out each week, but it would have been better to wait and binge. The Korean guy was quite cute.
          The latest is someone here suggested a Thai BL (I’d never watched anything Thai) that’s popular right now 2gether. Are you watching it?

          I haven’t finished any Thai ones yet, and I’m not watching BL just because it’s BL. It still has to have some kind of quality that makes it worth watching. Right now I really like their voices and the language (heh).

    Ooh thanks for the heads up, I’m officially interested in seeing the Kdrama take on BL.
