A Drama A Day
Day 7 – Medical/Hospital 😷 : Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim

I think most people will be picking Hospital Playlist for this, I almost did. But I chose to go with RDTK1 because I didn’t feel like I had any issues understanding medical jargon in that one. Cannot speak to medical accuracy, but it was very enjoyable.
With Hospital Playlist I was googling whatever medical terms they were using so much so that I kept my phone 📱 at the ready when I was watching it.

RDTK has one of the best kisses in dramaland, & I’m a sucker for obvious romance in dramas.

Love it – 9.5/10, totally worth rewatching for me.

    I prefer this one out of all the others! And it was as accurate as I’ve ever seen a medical drama.

A Drama A Day
Day 6 – Mystery/Thriller/Crime : The Bad Kids (cdrama)
@13infamyss has a post about it that\’s way more articulate than I could ever put it, but this is a fantastic drama. It\’s so good I wanted to rewatch a couple of episodes, & I hardly ever do that with such genres.
One thing is for sure – if you watch it, it will provoke some thinking, and discussion guaranteed 💯 9/10

Another one I really liked was Million Yen Women. It was a very unpredictable story for me. 8/10

I haven\’t seen kdramas I wholeheartedly love from these genres, nor seen ones I\’ve been overly impressed with. If I had to pick I\’d pick the intriguing but very flawed kdrama Signal 📶
7/10

      Did you finished pickled??? It’s amazing! I still think about this drama to this date! The most the resonated with me was the animation in ep 10! Great storytelling and I love that it made you chose which one to believe in – the fairytale or reality just like Chao Yang was asked to do so!!! Ahhhhh~ hope more people would see this amazing show!

        I know!! It was such a well made drama through and through. Easily the best thriller I have watched this year (the other thriller I loved this year was Nobody Knows, which also had children in key roles, but very differently portrayed). It definitely deserves a bigger audience. I think it will end up being some sort of cult hit.

      He was. He is very very good. I sympathized with him so much, & understood where he was coming from. But at the same time he showed enough evilness that I wanted him to be punished.

I wasn\’t on db so I didn\’t see the similar drama likes list thingy posts floating around. Hopefully it\’s not too late & I wanted to do this soooo….

My favourite dramas which are not necessarily those I\’ve rated highly or even rewatched. Yes I\’m weird like that, no I don\’t care 🙃

These are my favourite for now :-

10% Chicago Typewriter
10% While You Were Sleeping
10% Queen In-Hyun\’s Man
10% Bloody Romance
10% Come & Hug Me
10% Put Your Head On My Shoulder
10% Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim S1
10% Just Between Lovers
10% Mystic Pop Up Bar
10% Kuzu No Honkai

If non kdramas don\’t count, then alternatively
10% Temperature Of Love
10% Encounter
10% Hospital Playlist

Inspired by @sicarius – because why not. I have more dramas I hate than love anyways. Love is ephemeral, hate is forever.

(This obviously does not include trashy dramas like Thrashy, TKEM, Born Again & Abyss of dramaland – why? Because I knew they\’d be shit from the get go. Also doesn\’t include my least fav from other languages)
P.S – Last 3 could potentially be interchanged with 12 others

I\’m sure at least 4 of them will be highly controversial but here it goes :-

10% She Was Pretty
10% My Little Bride (yes I know its a movie but I hate it with a passion)
10% Hotel Del Luna
10% Because This Life Is Our First
10% Birth Of A Beauty
10% Radiant
10% Trashdal
10% My Absolute Boyfriend
10% About Time
10% Goblin

    40% but only because I astutely avoided the rest hehehehe

    10% (About time – the first kdrama I didn’t like!). I liked HDL and BTLIOF; Goblin was watchable because of the second couple and the bromance

      I didn’t feel much for the bromance in Goblin, the 2nd couple was cute enough but not enough to lessen my dislike for it

        One of my friends really liked it and basically forced me to watch it, but after I lost interest I have no clue what happens LOL though, thinking back, I’m not even sure if my friend finished it but she definitely got farther than me

        0

    I can understand About Time, because I was so willing for it to end, and Goblin, because I never liked the love story between the leads (although I loved the drama), but Radiant? Oh, my heart aches, it’s one of my top 10 dramas 🙁
    I haven’t seen the rest.

      Radiant completely butchered its story in the last 3 episodes, before that it was stagnant for the most part but still doing okay.

Apparently I haven’t seen any historical kdramas either. I don’t count costume dramas as historical, so even though I’ve seen kdramas set in period settings, I don’t call them historical.
Come through cdramas I guess. Sageuk beanies don’t kill me 😅

A Drama A Day
4 – Historical : Nothing Gold Can Stay
This is a wonderful wonderful wonderful atypical period drama. It’s largely based on history with some dramatic flair added to the FL’s life story.

I’ve seen A LOT of Time Travel & transmigration dramas – the good, the bad, the ugly, the questionable.
& here are some of my kdrama favs from them.

A Drama A Day
4 – Time Travel : Queen In-Hyun’s Man
This is one of my favourite dramas. I did a rewatch a few months back. Time travel is done so well in this. It’s not just there as a prologue, it’s a recurring theme & is used as a tool in the drama.
This is actually the best time travel drama I’ve seen so far, in any language.

Honourable Mentions :
i) Splash Splash Love 💦 💦 ❤️
This is not a historically accurate time travel drama, but it ia light hearted & something I’d love to rewatch any day. 🤗 💚
It is unique in one way – this is the only time travel drama in which the protagonist actively wants to return to their world.

ii) Live Upto Your Name
I did not expect to like this drama so much when I first started watching it, but this is certainly one of the better ones out there 🙃.

I wasn’t able to decide how I wanted to pick my fighter for this – a gender bender or gender roles reversal? If it’s gender roles reversal should it reflect those typically associated with irl or with drama tropes?

If its a cross dressing type of drama, Sorry But China has SK beat hands down. On an average they do better portrayals of girls dressed as guys.

A Drama A Day
3 – Gender Reversal
i) Arsenal Military Academy

Did not complete the drama but Bai Lu nailed looking walking & talking like a man. If I didn’t know, I wouldn’t doubt for a second it’s a man.
ii) Oh My General – Sandra Ma as a war general – she’s pretty damn convincing as a guy. Honestly had a hard time digesting she wasn’t a man
iii) Only Kiss Without Love – Trashy webdrama, but it’s the best portrayal of a guy I’ve seen among east asian dramas.

Now kdrama picks :-
Tale Of Nokdu – again I did not complete this drama, but It’s the only believable case of a guy cross dressing like a woman, & looking alluring while doing so.

Search WWW
This had typical gender trope reversal & irl ideology reversal
with Scarlet being the executive that paves the way for a semi candy actor & Tammy being the one that didn’t want to get married. The reverse objectification aside, this is the best example I can think of. (This actually is the only drama in this list I’ve completed & liked)

I had a lot of trouble thinking of dramas in this genre cz it\’s just not my preferred genre 🤷🏻‍♀️

A Drama A Day
2 – Action : Bloody Romance (cdrama)
If I had to pick a kdrama it\’d be Queen In-Hyun\’s Man. Honestly not happy with either of my choices but these are the closest I\’ve come to watching action shows.

        Yeah that happens with slow net on other site too, not just a db problem.
        Comments disappearing on 5g is a db problem. 4 of my comments disappearing in a row is a definite db problem.

      Wall posts or thread comments?
      Thread comments sometimes have to be “checked”, and db doesn’t like you posting too fast.
      The inappropriate word system is pretty broken, as it won’t allow sp0iler but it will allow any number of profanities.
      If it won’t post a wall post it just won’t post it- and you have to edit it- there is no delayed posting for the wall.

          Hmmmmm I’ve had dB eat my thread comments before. It said something like it had to be checked by a moderator and then once it just never posted. Other times its delayed posted.
          If you post comments in succession on a thread it goes REEE YOU’RE POSTING TOO FAST and then it says you’re repeating comments when you try recomment and… Yeah it’s annoying and I don’t know how to get round it sorry.
          It seems to have some parameters in place to minimise spam that we can’t see but backfire on the user in the meantime.

Minion Questionnaire: Beanie Edition

Q1. Explain your username (and/or avatar).
@maybemaknae – my username. At the time I joined db I thought maknae meant least experienced, not youngest, & I from my observations everyone else seemed to be a long long time kdrama watcher in comparison so I thought maknae would be appropriate.
__Alas now I know it\’s an age term & not a seniority (or lack thereof) in experience term 😅😆
avatar – the masked mysterious guy from Trashdal. He was leaps & bounds ahead with guarding against the coronavirus. Yes that\’s my story & I\’m sticking to it. Ofc it had nothing to do with my weakness for dark, taciturn & mysterious pretty bois *hides*

Q2. What is the first drama that you watched (or the first drama that made an impression)?
— DOTS.

    — Yes, strangely many.
    a) A boy Best friend with the crush,
    b) A girl best friend who was like a soul sister & saying the exact same things at the same time & finishing off each others sentences
    c) Hate to love moment with my first crush
    d) Confessing via a letter & being rejected in a secretive but public manner with a note
    e) leaning over a classmate/friend with our bodies & heads over each other & ensuing awkwardness when we realized our attraction & comfort with each other ; then looking away

    Q7. Is there a drama character you’ve ever strongly identified with, and why?
    — Hmmm 🤔 Recently Hae Won from LAND aka ‘When The Weather Is Fine’.
    The whole when you say it was a misunderstanding instead of saying sorry you’re trivialising what you did & putting them onus on the victim for getting hurt. It’s underhanded & a subtle kind of manipulation that makes it feel like you have no right to your feelings. I have the right to feel the way I want & decide who to forgive in what manner & when, if ever.

    — [My first response was nobody, because I don’t want to spoil my fantasies & the relief that escapism brings me by it intruding on reality.
    My second thoughts are artists I like & language communication probs 😪
    My 3rd thought is f*ck it, go delulu 😬😜]

    — Dean : I’d love to pick his brain about music he likes. I also just want to stare at his face in the height of summer so he’s not clad in his winter layered style clothes 😅
    — Crush. His music has been a great comfort to me. I’d love to thank him & share how his simple words have brought solace to me. 🙂
    — Jackson : He looks like he’d be great fun to hang out with, plus no language problems 🤭
    — Eric Nam. From life to music to chill as a person, I’m a huge fan & his life trajectory gives me a lil something to relate to.
    — Stella Jang. She’s awesome & multilingual & I just want to be in her presence. 😍
    — Actors wise Yoo Yeon Seok & Seo Hyun Jin
    — a date & dance with Jaehyun of NCT or Inseong of SF9

    Q12. Your favorite drama has an unholy alliance with your most hated drama and produces a mutant baby drama. Describe the plot.
    — A germophobe bestseller writer in a slump meets a new ditzy curly haired hire at his publishing company while waiting for an interview who . It turns out she was his childhood rescuer & friend against thunder which was due to a past life connection where they both were revolutionaries against Japanese occupation. In that lifetime she died under torture on thunderstorm ⛈ day. Now she’s plagued with memories of her past lifetime, & the phantom trauma & nightmares combined with reversal of her family’s fortune in current time means she’s a frazzled incompetent employee who keeps stalking & following & messing with the life of of the writer ML.
    Together they’re a disaster tempting fate – he’s a jerk & she’s a candy stalker. Eventually their misgivings towards each other are resolved when the FL finds him two ghostwriters – a chic sly fashionable female (who is her bff, & whose mom is a shaman) & a past recounting visible only to them ghost.

    5
    0

    8/9

    The shaman mom is against all the leads meeting each other & living another tragic lifetime together because she knows of another lifetime thousands of years ago where the FL was a fox goddess on a mortal trial & had her eyes taken away from her as punishment by the crown prince god ML, while the concubine who framed the FL when found out was sent away to East sea to guard a demon, but the King God had pity on her & put into a cryogenic sleep for her to wake thousands of years later as the daughter of the water snake that renegaded on her duties ; whose task now is to take care of both women as their guardian.
    The mom runs a moon hotel for all the ghosts & acts as their problem solver, to urge them towards reincarnation or Nirvana.

    So anyways with past life memories & ghosts wreaking havoc & the publishing company about to go under, the 4 unlikely people figure out ways of past to keep present afloat.

    1
    0

    9/9

    The FL solves the guys germophobia & complex family problems & together all 4 write a book & record the progress & life as a documentary, which wins the FL a best newcomer award, & the guy another record breaking bestseller & literary prize.

     Finally the 2nd lead can let go of the 2nd FL to afterlife after being her human problem solver & financial manager, so that she can move on from her first crush of 20th century, on whom she fell & had her first kiss in school , confessing as a bimbo & being rejected & humiliated publicly… Then nearly dying in a house fire & bonding in the aftermath but ultimately falling near death after a rejection & being put under cryogenic sleep again for hope for a better life in 21st century by the mom.

    The shaman mom having fulfilled her duties, now all former ghosts leave the hotel & die or whatever & the writer + not candy couple live mundanely happy ever after.

Day 9 : Favourite Secondary Couple

I had to scratch my head for this one. There are plenty of second leads & secondary/supporting characters I’ve liked more than the leads, & some couples too which I liked more than the OTP, but I couldn’t think of any that I’d say are my favourites right off the bat.
__So I thought for a while & immediately Lee Elijah & Ryu Deok Hwan came to mind. They were so cute & their progression felt normal. Quite rom com style I must say 😅

The other couples I thought of were Lee Jae Wook & Scarlett from WWW and Yoon Ah Reum + Eun Tak Sem (So Joo Yeon as 4th year resident & Kim Min Jae as nurse) from Romantic Dr 2

      It’s how I fell in love with Lee Elijah, can’t forget her now.

    The Lee Elijah & Ryu Deok Hwan couple was so so SO good!
    RDH had a lovely loveline in Labour Inspector Jo too, but it was so understated that it cannot be counted as a secondary couple.

    Ok now I remember he had a SUPER LOVELY secondary loveline in Faith too! He is just lovely, end of discussion!

BORN AGAIN – is anybody else watching this?
Lee Soo Hyuk makes my ovaries explode.😍😘🤩🥰 Gosh I know I shouldn\’t get attached to him considering the whole soul switch-a-roo & that he has his hair up ; but I can\’t help it. I rewind & rewatch his scenes, i can\’t get enough.

JKY playing a murderous psychopath feels too blasé now. He brings nothing new to his interpretation of Cheon Jong Bum.

I am so gone for this drama that I watched the last 3 episodes raw 😆

    The writer could be fooling us with the soul switching. I wonder if no switching actually took place. But it could go either way (I mean, Ji-Cheol did dramatically write on the walls of his holding cell about his desire to live as Hyung-Bin, even if only for a little while). We’ll just have to continue watching. 😉

      If the writer does try to make it a fake out, then it’d just be a huge plot hole because Soo Hyuk doesn’t grab his head, he grabs his eye area in phantom pain.
      ___ It makes semi sense from Jun Beom’s perspective because 80s cop also saw the gruesome murder scenes – the 21st century reincarnation could be interpreting things differently – If he is 80s cop. But the paintings are in a murderers pov so again the soul switch-a-roo fake out would just be colossal bad writing on top of the already bad writing.

      Tbh I also considered the possibility of a fake out but I’m holding faith due to the dramaland hair rule & mdl order of listing actors 😂

        I know some other Beanies had thoughts about Lee Soo-hyuk’s eye grabbing in the current timeline.

        Re: Jong-beom’s character:

        I believe that the people around him (I refer to them as both the Murderer’s Posse–for the man and woman who followed/admired Ji-cheol’s father when he was actively killing–and crazy family–mostly for his mother) are expecting him to be this psychopathic serial killer. A twisted version of the Next Best Thing. As such, they interpret his actions and even his art in that light.

        In a flashback, for example, a young Jong-beom talks to his mother about his wanting to have been able to see inside the body of his late grandfather. His mother has this look on her face and says that he must have a curiosity about studying bodies (or something like that). But Jong-beom replies that he wanted to see if he could find his grandfather’s soul. His mother then has the look of someone who was not expecting that response. As for the paintings: the woman (who was a student of Ji-cheol’s father and apparently the lawyer who defended Ji-cheol in the ’80s timeline) looks at the painting of the person hanging off the ledge. She guesses that the perspective is from the murderer’s point of view. Almost as if the murderer were looking down at the person: he is above everything and the person hanging off the ledge is insignificant (this is my very poor summary of what she says). Jong-beom then replies something to the effect of: “Is that what you see?” He never confirmed her interpretation. Sorry for rambling. I am summarizing and paraphrasing a lot here, lol.

        With Jong-beom’s character, they might be going with a sociopath or psychopath (I always have a problem with these terms as used in dramas, but will go with this), but he might not be a serial killer. I don’t think he is a killer. There is something off about him, but that could be because he does not behave or think “normally.”

        And it could also very well be because he is the reincarnation of the detective. I like what you wrote above: “the 21st century reincarnation could be interpreting things differently.” This is a possibility. But I can’ t help but feel that we could always be fooled.

        Side note: I never saw ’80’s Ji-choel as a psychopath. I can understand that the public might think that, as all of the murders were pinned on him. But the woman who belonged to Murderer’s Posse also seemed to think of him that way. He was troubled, no doubt, but I saw him as a deeply feeling but also troubled person.

          Yes agreed. The mom was definitely wanting a psychopath. I wouldn’t be surprised if she got the 80s dad sperm because she was a fangirl.

          Thanks for the reminder about the lawyer author. That one is most definitely a fangirl.

King has osts from ZION.T & HWASA. I\’m predicting a Hotel Del Luna 2.0 where anybody who is somebody will have osts.
Drama sucks but hey I love those 2; at least the osts are nice (the only nice things about it). Not including the love poem copy ost, we\’ve heard like 3 already.

Unless I go stir crazy from lockdown this is a drop. I\’d much rather binge nicer shows – Any recs?
