      Yes, thank you! 💙 wasn’t sure anyone would recognize them because they’re not as popular as the others are 😓

        I’m sure many people in DB knows them as Took Seungjae rose here as deokhwa. Anyways I am not a melody but I love them a lot. Especially eunkwang and changseob are 💜💜

          I agree, Eunkwang and Changseob are 💙 haha. I’m not sure if I can be called a true melody either…perhaps just slightly more than an average listener. I do tend to listen to their music more than the others.

    I recognized only Peniel 😂 with GOT7 they are my happy pill otherwise I’m not much into K-pop or pop in general

    1

      Aha, I see Peniel is the more popular one 😂 There’s something about BtoB’s music that’s calming for me. I like GOT7’s style as well. And I’m always glad when KPop groups or singers venture into drama OSTs.

Day 19: In a hat
My favorite blend of traditional and 19th century modern fashion by the ladies and gentlemen of Hanseong.

    I love the style during this period. Hina was a fashion queen.

      She was very fashionable. I love everyone’s clothes actually especially since it was a mixture of two cultures. The costume design was fantastic.

      6

        The costumes were great, and the flaws in the western costumes (Edwuardian) may be explaind by the fact that it is Joseon.
        I can’t speak about the Joseon fashion because I know very little about costume in Asia.

        Mission accomplished! Hehe, he’s not exactly a chaebol, but he is a really cool character. Enjoy!

        Please note I haven’t recommended Where Stars Land, but you might like it (I hated the later portion of the drama). He plays a minor side character.

          Oh I already took a peek a few weeks ago of some clips on YT for his scenes. I didn’t finish the series when it aired and don’t remember his part in it.

          I’m trying to work up my tolerance for melo and might try Come and Hug Me after Inspector Jo.

            I left Come and Hug Me quickly. The pain wasn’t going to be worth it for me.

            KKN was half of what Beanie’s labeled The Security Couple. They weren’t in the episodes much.

            Nope. I’ve become serial killer intolerant. If a drama is focussed on it, I usually quit watching.

            I had no idea about his character there. I’m not sure I can tolerate something so dark either. One of the reasons why I can’t watch WDH’s other dramas is because of the dark themes. Sigh.

      Agree! It is so under-rated! I would have missed this wonderful show if not for some beanies’ recommendation.

    Me thinking: “That looks familiar, but the colours are a lot crisper that what I usually get!”
    So, I went back to my giphy account, just to doublecheck. But, nope, that not mine, it’s from letsflytoasiarenata, I shared their post from Tumblr.

    Anyway,Mei, I really appreciate it that you gave credit for your repost! My gifs are just some screencaps I run through giphy, in average it takes me 2 minutes to make one. And I actually feel happy if anyone reposts them, don’t care about authorship, only about spreading the love for dramas and actors! But some of the beautiful gifs that get posted are a work of love – people run them through photoshop and whatever super-pro program and it takes them hours to get them just right. I love the work of some of these people, and they deserve credit for their artistry!

      Oh, thanks for clearing that up! I’m not as skillful when it comes to things like this and so I really do appreciate everyone’s work that comes into it. 😊

          Yes! Their friendship was one of the best parts of the show. I’d rewatch for JangHyuk’s performance too. I can still hear his voice and remember how he delivers his lines ☺️

The King Finale
I think this gif pretty much says it all ( sort of)…

View post on imgur.com

    I’m happy we got the fairy tale ending, after all. I was smiling the whole time we were shown what everyone was up to.
    That was the best part.

    I don’t understand why it was only TE who retained her memories. Was it because she was in the in-between place while the reset happened? But Yeong seem to remember too? I won’t really understand the entire process of the time travel and time loop elements. And Yo-yo kid is another confusion still, even at the end. As a non-geek, I’ll just sigh, shake my head and roll with it.

    As for the love story… *sigh* it was cute and all but practical me questions how they are going to deal with the weekend dates for the long term. *double sigh*
    I had expected for things to go the way it happened for Lady Noh.

    I’d say this drama is really unconventional from start to end. I think if we look at it this way, then it kinda makes sense? I still enjoyed it when I could just ignore the parts that didn’t make sense.

    Oh did you guys notice the dates and captions? I think someone has been checking on Beanies’ comments lol.

    Okay, I’m so ready for WDH’s new drama and if they can get KKN to star in it too, that would be fantastic.

    3
    1

      Yes! Thank you to whoever read our pleas for captions with dates. I felt pretty smug for predicting a time skip and happy ending lol. I still expected it to have a bit more umph.

      I did enjoy seeing what everyone was up to after the reset though it didn’t make sense. I actually discovered facial expressions I didn’t know I had watching this drama. For example, I can genuinely smile but have my eyebrows raised incredulously, like when PM was shown in jail and Luna visited her.

        “…discovered facial expressions I didn’t know I had..” I could relate to this lol.
        The jail guard (PM’s secretary) had me ROFL at that scene.

        I feel smug too. I said it from the beginning that there are many parallels but many disagreed and some just put my theory down. Turns out there really is multiple parallels and even extra with different versions of Taeul. Ahahahaha

        Anyways…I feel that the trouble they had to face from beginning to ep15 was unneeded. The feel of ep 16 was very different compared to the rest of the series.

        I got stuck on ep 30, it’s so long that my attention kind of fizzled out. But now that you posted this I feel like going back! I specially liked Danashri’s looks, the cool armours and everything Tawhan

        1

          Haha it was longest I had ever attempted and it was all TaHwan’s fault lol. But I stuck till the end for the Empress as I really wanted to see how she executed her plans. I did use the FF button for most of the battle scenes and political talk.

          1
          3

            I lived for the few battle scenes. And for Tal-tal’s look. 😉

            I’m glad I watched this drama early in my “career”, since it would be hard for me to gloss over the historical inaccuracies now. It still has some of the most amazing costumes and OST I’ve come across though.
