Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

WOAH. I just found out that my favorite Taiwanese director is the executive producer & screenwriter of an upcoming BL movie, Your Name Engraved Herein. My expectations sky-rocketed instantly at this piece of news, even before I watch the trailer.

Iโ€™m talking about Qu You Ning, Winnie. He directed my favorite The Rose, the well-known In Time with You & It Started with a Kiss. (I also just realized that heโ€™s one of the directors for the Chinese drama, Go Go Squid. *failed fan*)

Itโ€™s gonna be a heartbreaking one isnโ€™t it? The title is telling & the trailer is obvious. Oh, I found a longer trailer too 💔💔💔 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_txjyHY0kkw

I was way too arrogant.

How did this script got approved? I cannot with their lines. God.

I just hope Kiyong gets a nice dad in his next project. For once, please?

I did this for loyalty, coz I do miss the boys.

    BORN AGAIN was a reluctant pass but I am a fan of Jang Ki-yong. Definitely he needs a loving father like Park Seo-joon had in ITAEWON CLASS. In 3 of the dramas I have seen JKY in he has struck out in the dad department: KILL IT, COME AND HUG ME, and GO BACK COUPLE.

I can’t believe I only managed to catch Call Me by Your Name now.

Couldn’t say I have no complaints, but I forgive everything just for Professor Dad’s monologue. Furthermore, the actor delivered it OH SO DARN beautifully.

Beanies who had watched this movie before, how did you find it?

P.S. Just wanna say I’m fucking spoilt by my BL novels for all the happy endings I get.

    It was slow for me but I loved the cinematography and his parents were super cool!

      I agree that it’s slow, & I seriously think that his parents were the best thing in the movie!

Now that I finished it, I think I know why I almost dropped When the Weather is Fine.

I reached exactly at the halfway mark, but I just couldnโ€™t bring myself to continue, until like one month later coz I really donโ€™t like to drop shows, lol.

I donโ€™t like the OTP. Their relationship feels so unbalanced. Like IMBA unbalanced.

But I was REALLY into Shim Myungyeoโ€™s story. Jangwoo was so funny too. & thatโ€™s how I got to the end.

I’m ending my review with a picture proof of Lee Minho’s obsession with ponytails.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

    That’s hilarious! Can’t wait to see if this obsession persists in his next project ๐Ÿ˜€

    I actually had hoped itโ€™ll get better so maybe I can change my mind from dropping it to binging it but wow
    Iโ€™m glad I dropped it 😆
    I feel sorry for everyone who waste their time on this and for the casts and crews!

      There were still some fun bits and cos I had low expectations anyway I don’t mind so much. I think cast & crew are probably fine, they still get paid and it’s probably heaps of money for the actors with the PPL they got >.<

I feel like this is (one of) the most insincere piece of work from this writer & I conclude that Kim Eunsuk & Lee Minho should never work together again.

Twice is enough.

So maybe this should be his reply if he ever receives a casting offer from this writer again.

Thanks to the loud reviews, I scanned thru The King mainly just for the fun & cute moments.

– Lee Minhoโ€™s looking good as always but Lee Gon just felt like a younger Kim Shin at times. 😶
– Kim Kyungnam was wonderful, & I recommend his fans to check out Special Labor Inspector Jo if they havenโ€™t done so! 😁
– I want Woo Dohwan in a romcom male lead role soon! 💕
– When Gon was blow-drying Tae-eulโ€™s hair in the hospital, I was actually surprised that it wasnโ€™t a Dyson PPL. 😂
– I love the child actress who played the yoyo child-god. Sheโ€™s lovely in the movie, Birthday. 👍
– Most importantly, Baby Yeong was utterly adorable!!! 😍

Happier things first. The Alley! As a bubble tea lover, of coz Iโ€™m a fan of this brand. So Iโ€™m happy to see their PPL~ (I donโ€™t even have to mention the drama name right? HAHAHAHA)

Their Brown Sugar Deerioca Milk is SO GOOD. Yes, coming from someone whoโ€™s kinda lactose intolerant. Lol. I had the chance to try it (in Seoul furthermore, last year) when I was given a free voucher, HEH. I only managed to finish half the cup but itโ€™s really darn nice. I love their Peach Oolong, & Royal No.9 Black Tea too!

But I think the best part is actually their paper bags. I thought they were really pretty.

Go try their tea if you havenโ€™t done so! Especially the Brown Sugar Deerioca series! I need to try their Aurora series one day too, hehe.

(Itโ€™s Passion Fruit Green Tea & The Alley Deep Choco in the photo anyway)

    I never knew that had shops in the United States until I checked their website. I’m looking forward to trying their tea with one of my friends when she returns to New York ๐Ÿ™‚

    I feel like I’m trapped in a drama. Please send a Maserati so I can leave.

The more BL dramas I watch, the (HELLA LOT) more I appreciate my BL novels.

It’s like… having a two-course meal VS having a eight-course meal. 🙈

(Bless you girls, my writers & authors <3)

Finally got the chance to catch this yearโ€™s Baeksang Awards & congrats to Kwangsoo once again!

His thank you speech was hilarious & I love it. HAHAHAHA!

He really didnโ€™t expect to win since so many sunbaes were nominated along with him, that he asked if everyone was shocked like him too LOL. He was so sincerely apologetic towards the sunbae-nominees, it was so funny. He even helped to promote Soul Repairer when he thanked Shin Hakyun, lollllllllllllllll.

P.S. Go watch Inseparable Bros if you havenโ€™t done so!

Been doing a lot of rewatch recently, thanks to Netflix for adding so many dramas. From Discovery of Love to Moorim School to Reply 1988 to sooooooooo many more.

Untamed was on the list too, & now that I noticed, they did give Lan Zhan the burn scar on his chest too, but obviously didnโ€™t (& couldnโ€™t) explain why & how. HAHAHAHA.

*happy sigh* I just canโ€™t get enough of my BL novels. If only they are readily available in English so I can recommend to everyone. *sad sigh*

Happy Pride Month, beanies! 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈

I was thinking, maybe we can have a LGBT theme for June along with the drama challenge?

We can share dramas, movies, characters, novels, music or anything related to LGBT? Thought that might be a good idea to share the love, hehe~

Just finished Romantic Doctor 2.

– Ahn Hyoseop looked damn delicious.
– Yang Sejongโ€™s cameo was beyond awesome & it lasted for one whole episode!!!
– Reunion of Ahn Hyoseop & Yang Sejong. 💙

Hope to see Kim Sabu (or Han Seokkyu) soon; take care& be safe, Sejong!!!

So itโ€™s time for Favorite Male Lead for the challenge?

Hua Cheng is the first one who came to my mind. But only TGCF beanies will know why. *cries*
