Beanie level: Eunuch in drag

Gun’s all-black everything 😉😉😉

Also, he doesn’t need to look good because he already is 🤷

Someone just threw a haphazard Valentine\’s day greeting along Sunbae 2\’s way, got a greeting in return, and now feels like she won February 14th!

Happy Valentine\’s Day, my beloved Beanies! ❤️

Beanies, since I loved my first Chinese drama (A Love So Beautiful) please recommend other Chinese/Japanese dramas with the same adorable, heartwarming vibes, preferably on Netflix. Thank you!

    Put Your Head on My Shoulder is one of my favourites

      I second this. Put Your Head on My Shoulder is a sister drama of A Love So Beautiful. Same writer but Put Your Head on My Shoulder is university setting. One of my favourites as well. Xiao Xi’s boss (Fu Pei) and colleague (Momo) are the second male lead and the female lead of Put Your Head on My Shoulder. Xiao Xi was briefly mentioned at the end ^_^

    I loooooooooooooooooooooooove A love So Beautiful. This is not on Netflix, but iQiyi and other illegal sites carry this series, Lovely Us. One of my favourite school dramas too. It gives Reply 1988 vibes. So much heartwarming moments and I love the friendship from childhood!!! Definitely a recommend – https://www.iq.com/play/19rrhlcgj9?frmrp=search&frmb=list&frmrs=image

          It’s always nice to find people you can talk to about dramas you love, Custard!!!! 😍😍😍😍😍 and welcome to the world of cdramas! Cdramas tend to do really well on campus dramas – usually revolves on normal teen issues – love, friendship, don’t know what to do after highschool. Rather than bullying and meanie teachers!

    Not as good as A Love So Beautiful, but fun, fizzy, and a nice friend group and sweet romance try Wait, My Youth.

Here’s to all the second lead heartbreaks we’ve been through.

Yesterday I decided that I have Sunbae 2 Overload – we worked together a lot last week and since he handles major issues, it was exhausting. I\’d rather take a break this week, thankyouverymuch.

I just had our chat open, smiling when he went online, finding comfort in the knowledge that there\’s someone I can reach out to in case of emergencies, but not attempting to strike a conversation (because finding an excuse is hard enough).

And so I let him be and went about my day, but just as I was about to call it a day, the Universe (aka my boss) told me to raise a concern to his team. I thought about reaching out to someone else, but since that person is offline, I had to default to him.

And that, Beanies, is how Sunbae 2 had me laughing at the end of an exhausting day by pouting that I gave him more work.

Love,
February

Uhm, I just started Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo because @wapz commented on my previous post about something something crushes lol. Wow, I really miss uni and Lee Joo-young is such a girl crush.

I have an exam coming up that I\’m excited to study for and so many books on my TBR that I can\’t binge this one though.

    Uh oh. By the time you reach episode 4, you will want to binge it all lol. It’s good for you for now that WLFKBJ’s slowest episodes were the first 2. It is a great show overall, have fun!

Universe: It requires you to work with Sunbae 2.

Me: BRING IT ON!

    Lol, you remind me of that one thread on DB probably around when Weight lifting Fairy aired (don’t know which one it was specifically if someone reading this remembers it please link it), where beanies discussed how far they have gone for their crushes. I had nothing to add back then but I do remember going to a funeral to see a crush and that’s pretty absurd. Have fun working with SC2!

      Oh dear I would very much love to read that thread! I crush on/admire a lot of people and usually tend to get them to notice me by trying to do well in a common interest, whether it’s sports, a particular subject, or now, work. Lol.

      I have to think hard if I did anything ridiculous though since I may have suppressed those memories 😂

Beanies, guess who bantered and exchanged work-related jokes with her crush (Sunbae 2) today? ☺️

Feels like Sunbae, Don\’t Put On That Lipstick but, uhm, in reverse and sans all the makjang elements that gave Hyun-seung even a remote chance with Song-ah lol.

Dear Self,

\”You are capable.\”
\”You have potential.\”
\”You are good at what you do, even if you have no idea what it exactly is.\”
\”Your achievements are the fruit of hard work and not just because of dumb luck, and no matter how small you think they are, they are achievements just the same.\”
\”You need to be confident.\”
\”You are enough.\”
\”I believe in you.\”

You\’ve heard these words so many times, different iterations from the people you\’ve let past that carefree facade and given a glimpse into your inner turmoil, your deepest fears…

But you never heard it, not even once, from the person that matters most.

And so I\’m writing it down for you.

Love,
February

Beanies, guess who managed to convince her parents into watching 18 Again last night?

I must say though, I\’m falling into Wi Ha-joon\’s charms all over again. Ye Ji-hoon was introduced early on as a playboy, but in that bar scene when the woman slapped him, wished he ended up with a divorced woman with kids, and we thought he was a cheater… It was clearly about Seo-yeon lol.

Sadly, my dad doesn\’t seem as invested as he was in CLOY and Start-Up so they\’re probably gonna drop this after a few more episodes. Oh, well, I guess I\’d just rewatch on my own.

    Good job! And good luck keeping Dad interested, or maybe you can rewatch just with your Mom?

      I could try, but Mom likes watching with Dad. It’s not even about what they’re watching, it’s that they’re watching it together 😅

Sunbae ep. 3: I know I’m biased, but can these two actually please talk so that Jae-shin knows that she knows about the “wedding” and gets to ‘fess what’s really up instead of turning this even more complicated?

The flashbacks and seeing how he gets treated by his family make it more painful because he actually cares for Song-ah and leans on her for support because (I think) she’s similarly enstranged from family.

Also, Hyun-seung please stop telling her to get revenge by dating you when she just wants to break it off quietly. If you really care for her you should be telling her to talk with him, get closure, and let her heal, right?

She could’ve just yelled “I’M BREAKING UP WITH YOU BECAUSE YOU’RE GETTING MARRIED TO THE CHAIRMAN’S DAUGHTER!” in this scene and slammed the door in his face.

Sigh.

          Up til ep 4 they’re not doing a good job of making Lee Jae-shin an unsympathetic character. I dislike that he’s getting aggressive but it feels like he’s the victim here and Song-ah is his “safe place” and is lost without her 😭

Beanies, last week was such a good week for my one-sided crushes and I\’m still on a giddy high that I just have to share.

Sunbae Crush 2, the one I talked about in my previous post, is so easygoing and fun, yet incredibly reliable with work. We just exchanged emails until a couple of weeks ago when he helped with a mistake I made. His enthusiasm and curiosity rub off and motivate me to learn more and improve. Huh, and to think I\’m even excited to work nowadays?

Sunbae Crush 1, on the other hand, was a crush at first sight. The way the corner of his eyes crinkle when he smiles… I was a goner. We smiled whenever we catch each other\’s eyes back at the office, but I didn\’t really have that many chances to work with him… Until last week and gosh, that call was adorably awkward and it started like this:

*SC calls*
Me: Hello? Uhm, hello?
*Several seconds of silence*
SC: Oh, sorry I\’ve been talking for a while and didn\’t realize I was on mute.
Me: Haha that\’s alright. You can repeat your intro if you want.
SC: Hahahaha! Uhm, hi, welcome to my channel?

That one call should last me for a long time though, because I only have reason to interact with Sunbae Crush 1 when there are big issues and I certainly don\’t want that 😂

    I’m hoping the one who is already committed is SC 2 so we can safely root for you and SC 1 right 😁

      Yes, that was SC 2! Though tbh I don’t know much about SC 1 so we can’t really root for anything. I’m just gonna have to keep admiring them both from a distance like I do with our drama oppas and ajusshis 😂
