Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

Kdramaland creativity and originality – instead of moving with one suitcase like everyone else, she moves with one suitcase and a backpack. But she still has to move because that’s traditional for the hard-working poor FL in shows like this. There are limits to how much they can bend the rules 🙂

Yes, because disclosing secrets before the end resolves all the conflicts and ruins the plot. Because often (but not in this show) the plot is too lame to limp along without leaning on lots of ridiculous secrets being held far too long.

    I love Yum Hye Ran as Queen Yeomra.
    She always takes the best of her roles, and her Queen is intimidating and funny and shameless and understanding. Everything a time.
    I just hope she can find a way. Because there MUST be a way.

      Give it a try sometime. At least catch ep 1 thru the Chun-hyang reference 🙂

      It’s really worthy.
      My initial reason to watch was because it’s only 12 eps.
      Now I’m crying because it’s only 12 eps 😢

    If he had done it, we wouldn’t be watching this beautiful drama.
    So for once, no matter how much I cried yesterday while watching, it was ok to hide the truth.

#notthekingeternalppl Time travel done right! Changing the past in the interest of science 🙂

And yes, low-background lead from ancient shipwrecks being used for science is a thing. Go ahead, google it.

Real-life Stove League in KBO (Korean baseball)?
Did the Dinos hire a new general manager in the off-season? I hear there\’s a good one available.

Good Casting, day 15: the real OTP. Chaebol style courtship and then the OTP doing something very OTP-ish.

In other news, archeologists have discovered the earliest ancestors of S. Korea\’s chaebols.

Headline: \”Cretaceous-Period Crocodiles from Korea Walked on Two Legs\”

http://www.sci-news.com/paleontology/batrachopus-grandis-08528.html

\”…the track-makers had legs about the same height as human adult legs.\”

\”And while footprints were everywhere on the site, there were no handprints.\”
Of course. Chaebols know not to leave their own fingerprints anywhere 🙂

Better clean it and oil it before it rusts. And you’ll never get the blood out of the inside of the scabbard.
