Beanie level: Errand boy

I am just going to say this: Tae Jun’s family does not deserve him at all. They are all horrible people who do not really see him as a person with feelings.

    I HATE them. The absent father. The narcissistic sister. But worst of all, the mother who knowingly takes all his love but gives none.

      I feel you. I mean i can understand that parents usually get along with one child more than the other but to take advantage of your child’s kindness like this is horrible. When she slapped him, I absolutely lost it. I hope he is able to tell his mother how her behavior has affected him and how much it has hurt him.

        If there was any moment to tell his mother his feelings from a narrative POV, it was after that slap. Unless she does something to Taeyang, I don’t think he’s capable of confronting her tbh.

Love All Play just came and hit me with the feels this week. I love how are leads understand loneliness and can relate to each other. Tae Yang made me happy when she said yes

Love All Play is so damn cute. The leads have amazing chemistry and it is doing a good job of making me understand the. Also the pace does not lag

    I’m watching these two too! (Love all play and SS). I’m liking both! You’re right, the leads are perfect. 💕

Love All Play: I like that the romance starts right off the bat, both for myself and for the leads. They have an idea of what to expect while playing together

Sh**ting Stars: It has an interesting setting and like the leads but i really wish they would not have certain blatantly ignorant parts. Its regressive and ruins the viewing experience.

I knew i should have tempered my excitement for 25-21. After the clues from the future in ep 4 I have decided to drop it, for now at least. You can’t make me love a couple and then do this to me. I know osme people might like it cause it is more similar to real life but i watch dramas to escape my real life, which has been overwhelming me lately. So I will wait for the drama to wrap up

Nam Joo Hyuk and Kim Tae Ri have absolutely won me over with their new drama. Episode 2’s ending was wonderful

    yes yes yes.. 25 21 is the most beautiful drama among all the recent ones.. mostly for Tae Ri and Nam Joo Hyuk together such a heart warming drama.

Red Sleeve Cuff’s premiere was really nice. I like that the king seems a bit nuanced and not just a big baddie. I am not going to say anymore because i just don’t want to jinx it.

Episode 7 of Dali made me tear up a little. For all his bluster and pomp, Moo Hak is still a person who seems to be starved of love and even a family that cares about him.

    ditto.. that last few minutes were the crux of his over the top loud personality.. a real human being starved of love and affection.. I cried too with him.

You guys I think our second male lead in Dali may have a case of Mr Darcy a.k.a. being very awkward and inexpressive but feeling ardently.

    I like your Darcy analogy and it’s played well by Kwon Yul.

    Ooh now that you mention it, I could totally see Kwon Yul playing Mr. Darcy in a P&P adaptation.

Dali and Gamjatang somehow manages to balance realism and idealism in a good way. I almost cried at the scenes of Dali and her dad. Too many feels

Dali and Gamjatang is so freaking cute. The chemistry between the leads is adorable and I just want to thank God for Kim Min Jae’s voice.

Lovers of The Red Sky’s premiere was pretty good. I liked that it was more of supernatural than saguek. Ahn Hyo Seop is someone I have had my eye out for but he hasn’t been that consistent so far.

    I loved it too, Mani. It was entertaining and I loved the fantasy part although I got a bit confused with the reason the eyes were changed, but it is a very promisión beginning!

So I watched the Taiwanese drama Autumn Concerto because I was craving something slightly angsty. Do NOT expect emotional maturity or common sense from this drama. It has a really cute kid though

    😂😂😂 That’s an interesting way to put it. It is an old drama right? I guess it was very popular back then.

      It came out in 2009 with all the weird fashion and hair lol. And yes, it seems to have been very popular

    I could never bring myself to watch this, even at the height of it’s popularity and now being regarded as a classic. My sister loves it and I saw bits and pieces of it back then, and I couldn’t help thinking this was basically a mashup of all the most annoying cliches in Meter Garden S1+2 and Mars but with a kid. I don’t mind cliches honestly, but it being compiled in one drama just to up the angst was too much.

      Mars?

        You don’t know the classic Mars with Vic Zhou and Barbie Hsu ? It was with some actors of Meteor Garden but this time Vic Zhou was the lead.

        As Kurama said, Mars is a classic with Barbie and Vic. A lot of drama.

        Mydramalist summary:
        Han Qi Luo, an extremely shy art student went to the same college as Chen Ling, a popular play boy. By chance one day they met at a park when CL asked HQL for direction to a hospital to visit his friend who was injured in a bike racing incident. Hurriedly HQL drew him a map, unknowing that she was drawing on the back of one of her sketches. She ran off before he could thank her. He then noticed the sketch of a mother holding a baby and was touched. In school HQL was sexually harassed by a teacher and CL came to her rescue. They began to grow fond of each other but each of them had a secret past that needed to be addressed and overcome before they could accept and love one another freely.

        Just to add, it gets really crazy but if you’re looking for angst and a great OTP, I’d recommend Mars. It touches on a lot of sensitive and dark subjects too.

          Thank you so much. I’ll keep it in mind for when I need to watch angsty stuff

        MARS is an AWESOME drama! I watched it a few months ago, and LOVED it completely. It’s totally OTT, but with an OTP that works so beautifully, I couldn’t root for them enough. Plus the story actually still holds up ~20 years on. I’ve been saying this for a while now, Mars is the show that is ripe for a remake. If only the Asian drama industry would look beyond Meteor Garden!

          I think there are Japanese remakes (movie and drama).

            Isn’t it based off a Japanese manga? I’d love to see a tw-remake, honestly. They captured the raw emotion of the base story so well, and the OTP was great in itself, but I felt the acting was lacking. :/

            @pickleddragon the acting in the Japanese version?

            For the TW one, if I remember well Vic and Barbie dated after Meteor Garden. So they really had a great chemistry.

            Ah no @kurama I meant the acting in the tw-version. I loved the OTP to bits, and yes, I read about the real life connection, but I don’t think Vic Zhou did a great job with the acting there. :/

            What I meant was I’d love to see Taiwan itself do a remake of it, or other Asian drama industries pick this up.

            I haven’t watched the Japanese remakes, though. Do you recommend them?

            @pickleddragon I think that the Japanese versions were less dark that I remembered in the TW version.
