      It’s a currently airing Taiwanese show called The Arc of Life, which some of us are watching. I’m personally really enjoying it! Stellar cast, and a story that’s moving at bullet train speed!!

    Is that a good sign or bad? I believe good shows make it seem like there were never enough episodes. I wanted to continue it but haven’t still. Should I?

      I don’t know if it’s good or bad, but the pace for me is a little exhausting. It’s moving sooo quickly! And making my brain tired!!

        Yeah, I know. I wonder if we are breezing through the tropes right now so that we can get to the desired set-up mid-way and from there, it slows down. Right now, I am not feeling some plots. Like the one in ep 9.

          So true! They’re lumping all imaginable tropes all at once. It’s been like a trope encyclopaedia so far 😂 And you’re also right in that the speed affects how the audience connects with the characters. Right now, I’m watching it for the pretty, and Mei Ji.

            I am still holding out for Roy and Ivy. i can’t help but make parallels to More Than Blue in ep 9!

        Oh I guess that’s better than not going anywhere or being very slow. I guess you’re still liking it?

          Yes yes yes. Still liking it. I would recommend watching the 10 eps I’ve watched so far.

    Eps 9 and 10 were a little random, I thought. There was a Roy-in-white-shirt fan service montage, which had me laughing for a bit. The business still doesn’t make sense. But it’s all soooo pretty!!! So much light and green and joy even in the sadness!!

    Mei Ji is still my favouritest. I love Mei Ji. I hope she becomes the kickass rich businesswoman she wants to be.

      wait which part on the white shirt :scarycry:

      Business will get explained in ep 10, briefly. Xiao Niao explained that. So lmk if you are still confused once you are done!

        Oh I caught up with ep10!! There’s a brief montage with Roy in the white shirt in between when he’s drinking and later in the company office. It suddenly went slo-mo with music in the background. It was so obvious it was just fanservice 😂 There was no reason for the slo-mo otherwise.

        I heard the business explanation XN gives in ep10, but it still seems kind of random. “Brand promotion” for brands that are about the good life / the happy life, etc. Neither XZ nor MJ seem to have known about this plan until she gave that interview to the reporters. Also, there’s never been any real discussion of a business plan or business models, other than the storefront and the tableware, so I found it all a little strange.

          the white shirt should be wet. just saying.

          yeaah, i am not sure how it was translated, but XN said “people, events, things that are related to good life/happy living” i hope we get a clearer sense of their business model. seemed really vague at the moment. especially since they are launching a concept store, seems like it’s tablewares and artiste for now.

Uncanny Counter – I loved the friendship and the “built” family so much! What I really enjoyed was the acting for Jo Byung Gyu and Kim Sejong. I’ve never watched KSJ in anything before, but her emotions in the drama pulls my heart every time! What felt unsatisfactory was (other than the Son Ho Joon cameo – I was happy and that upset about it) how the plot dragged on in the second half. I thought the drama finished nicely and wouldn’t need a second season… but knowing myself, I would still watch anyway 🤷🏻‍♀️

    My exact thoughts. All the things I liked about the drama in the first half (specially Mun relation with his grandparents and friends) disappeared in the second half.

      I know! I really hoped that his friends could help in solving the crimes or catching the criminals, while remaining unaware that Mun is a Counter!

    I recently watched Kim Sejong in School 2017 and was surprised when I read that it was her first drama. She acted really well there even though it was just her first drama

      2017 is the only one I didn’t watch since it didn’t appeal to me. But she did really well in the crying scenes in Uncanny!

A little update on what I’ve been watching! Completed Run On, while I understand the ending, I don’t feel satisfied with DanAh and Yeonghwa’s 🙁 Magic Moment is sooooo good till the end! That slow burn was satisfying and enjoyable! The Arc of Life has my attention these days! Been wanting to start on Mr Queen and a couple of kdramas, but I don’t have the time just yetttt because of the Lunar New Year holidays 😪

          Thanks for sharing!
          I checked out the 1st two episodes but couldn’t get past the illogical and unlikely usefulness of a fridge that tells you what to eat… I mean, if it prepared the meal for you, I’d be totally sold on the idea! ha ha ha ha!

          I’m glad that you enjoy the show, though. to each their own!
          I have been enjoying your screencaps a lot, so keep them coming and maybe – maybe – it can encourage more Beanies to check out a show you love!

          cheers!
