    Of course it is! But here’s mine. Mine is a live photo of my hubby and my puppy, Yang-Yang, playing in a river near where we live. I had to convert it to a gif to share it.

        It was fitting that we both have our husband’s on our home screens. (You just need Uri, the cat, and it would be purrfect)! Also, animals make any picture cuter.

Me trying to escape 2020

I don’t know whether this is Min-ki acting as drunk Se-hee struggling to take off his sweater or just Min-ki struggling to take off his sweater

Me, before hitting shuffle on my generic Spotify playlist: I hope something sad plays to match my mood this morning

Lee Min-ki always seems quite composed and focused while filming, and in these bloopers it’s hard to break him from Se-hee’s straight face even when he’s doing the funniest scenes (it’s super impressive).

But when he DOES slip, it’s the cutest thing. His stupid laughs and smiles are so genuine, and I really, really hope we get plenty of them in Oh! Jooinnim.

    I love this drama and always wondered about the BTS because honestly, how does Lee Minki keep a straight face through it all? The answer is he didn’t hahahha

      The worst was ep 13 I swear I don’t know how they filmed that with Min-ki and So-min cracking up the whole time

This bed scene is legendary, but I think the two of them being unable to CHILL while filming it is even more legendary

I swear half of these blooper clips are just Jung So-min struggling to make it through a scene without laughing.

She has THE cutest, most infectious laugh ever. It makes me believe there are good things in the world again. If only you could hear these gifs.

As someone who thinks beer is absolutely disgusting I have a new favorite gif. And I just think their faces in the second one are funny, LOL.

BTLIOF blooper reel gifs coming your way. I made a ton but don’t worry, I won’t post ALL of them.

I don’t think I shared this here, but for Christmas I received the DVD boxset for Because This Life is Our First. It’s AMAZING, and along with the drama itself, it has over 13 hours of special features (cast commentary, bloopers, extra behind-the-scenes and interviews, etc.) and also comes with a gorgeous photobook of many unreleased stills, a special book with super cool things like the contracts, Se-hee and Ji-ho’s sticky notes to each other, Se-hee’s Excel spreadsheets and graphs, an interview with the writer, and more!

However, I don’t have a region-free DVD player, and my current laptop doesn’t have a DVD drive, so I’ve put off watching the DVDs for MONTHS.

Finally, tonight I broke out my old laptop, hoping to watch some footage, until I realized… My old laptop’s sound doesn’t work… Which is why I got a new one in the first place… 🤦🏼‍♀️

So NOW I am attempting to use VLC to rip the special features onto an external hard drive so I can watch them on my current laptop (and make gifs, of course!).

These DVDs include one hour of bloopers.

A WHOLE HOUR OF BLOOPERS.

I NEED TO WATCH THESE NOW!!!

So here’s hoping I can follow simple internet instructions to successfully rip these DVDs.

Or else I will cry.

    If VLC doesn’t do it, MakeMKV can read pretty much any DVD or Blue-ray and create files on your HD that can be played pretty much anywhere.
    The files are not compressed, and are LARGE, but that’s ok for just playing them once. To keep and play over & over, compress with something like Handbrake.

      VLC’s quality ended up being not so great and I’m a quality snob, so I ended up using MakeMKV after some more googling and it worked beautifully! I don’t mind the large files.

    My friend used Handbrake (the logo is a pineapple I think) to help me rip my 2PM’s DVDs. He said it works better than VLC.

    I love this kind of things (and gifts)!
    13 hours of special features are a dream!

Song of the Day 9/12: When I Fall by After School

Back in high school I LOVED After School. I loved most girl groups but they were definitely among my favorites, especially Nana (of course) and Kahi. Some reminiscing about 2nd gen girl groups on Discord (and some general squeeing about Nana) prompted me to listen to After School for the first time in way too long! This is one of my favorite b-sides.

Watching this, though, made me realize that Nana had NO lines except the “When I faaaaall~”, and she looks so sad just… standing there. 😂 Poor girl.

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already Minki-in-a-turtleneck season!

The new drama will probably start production in January or so, so that means we will get plenty of turtlenecks in the beginning, right? Right?

The last one………………………..cute

Hi, Beanies!

I decided I should offer all of you relief from my spamming about Min-ki and Nana’s rom-com (which will surely continue for a while until I chill… and then when promo material starts up there will be no end to my annoyingness) and start up my “song of the day” posts again!

Song of the Day 9/11: Coffee by Urban Zakapa

I love Urban Zakapa’s chill coffee house style of music, and this song is one of my favorites from them. It’s so warm and cozy, especially on a rainy day like it is here today. Enjoy!

I just very excitedly told my best friend about the Lee Min-ki/Nana rom-com news and she said

“Yeah, you already told me!”

I scrolled up and of course she was the very first person I screamed at when it was announced.

I legitimately forgot that I ever told her.

Is excitement-induced amnesia a thing?

I was so psyched that night I was actually shaking for a bit. And most of the day after I was completely wired. This has to be some sort of medical condition. Am I dying?

To the world where Min-ki and Nana are doing a romcom together: Good morning!

Please imagine that “good morning” in Goo Se-ra’s voice.

If this drama is 10% as cute as Into the Ring, I will be satisfied.

You guys have 6 more months of posts like this from me so buckle up.

    If it means I get lots of Se-ra in the interim, I’m here for it!

    Seriously, though, it could be 10% as cute as Into the Ring and still be cuter than most dramas…

Me: Yeah, I’m not really into rom-coms, especially lately. I prefer things that are moodier and darker these days.

Me when I hear the words “Lee Min-ki cast in a rom-com”:

    Love how excited you are over this, @mindy! (cause me too!!!)

      I am forcing myself to only get excited about the pairing and potential chemistry (Nana is a chemistry fairy, I swear) and not the actual drama because it could very well be absolutely terrible. NO EXPECTATIONS.

        I’ve only watched Nana on ITR so I have no point of comparison hahaha (what shows of hers do you recommend?). Totally agree with you, though I think we’d have more confidence about the show if we know what it’s about. I think I need to take your lead on not having expectations though! So the only way is up! hahaha

          The only other thing I’ve seen her in is The Good Wife, where she was a pretty new actress but she sparkled on-screen! But I also always loved her as an idol and her variety appearances (I fast-forwarded through Roommate just for her and Seo Kang-joon’s scenes, haha).

I would like to give dramaland a round of applause for casting my favorite actor with one of my favorite actresses from one of my favorite shows of 2020 in a romcom despite my misgivings about romcoms due to their high likelihood of being dumpster fires.

2021 is looking up.

    And I am here looking at the Gong Yoo/Bae Doona series wondering why it can’t be a romcom.

      I haven’t seen anything by the writer or PD so I will keep having no expectations…

        The director is from the short drama “You drive me crazy” and I highly recommend that!

I actually really liked the first episode of Record of Youth but I’m seeing that it seems to be an unpopular opinion. Apparently lots of people think it’s dated but I find it familiar yet also refreshing LOL but I’ve never been known to have, uh, good opinions.

Anyway, I really like Park So-dam’s character so far! I’m 24 and in the same stage of life as the main characters so I think I’ll relate to them a lot. The only thing I don’t particularly like is towards the end during the OTP scenes the directing got a bit OTT/cliche, but, well, it IS a youth kdrama.

    I like it too! I like how ML and FL know what they want in life and that they are working hard to achieve their goals/dreams.

      Me too! And I like how PBG’s character, while working hard to chase his dreams, also takes his boss’s well-intentioned words to heart. He’s wrestling between his dreams and his reality, and he’s simultaneously cynical and hopeful. I find that very relatable.

    I liked the energy in this episode overall. But I’m not a fan of any of the cast. :/ so I’m still on the fence.

I don’t watch variety, but sometimes if there’s one with a cast that catches my eye I’ll skim through it, like I did with Jung So-min’s Little Forest and Hani’s A Style For You.

Lovelyz Mijoo, who I’m really into lately, has a new variety show called The Sixth Sense. Oh Na-ra is in it too and Lee Sang-yeob was the guest on the first episode so I decided to check it out and…

I just can’t escape this is ridiculous.

    1. This has the potential to be so bad it’s good. It’s weird enough that I might have to watch.
    2. I want someone to translate this so I know whether Netflix added all the swear words.
