Beanie level: Entertainer-in-training

I know I’m a year late but… Rowoon… in the words of Moon-young: Wow.

A bit of a silly question incoming–what kind of flowers are these?

More Nana because I’m a little in love and tbh I’m bored when she’s not on my screen

Being so beautiful should be illegal

I’m watching the first ep of Memorials and Nana’s got that Hong Seol hair going on.

You know, I always find it curious that there are so many idols out there who, while captivating on-stage, can never seem to translate their charisma as a performer into their acting. This is my first time seeing Nana act (but I’ve always LOVED her as an After School member) and I definitely think she’s an exception. This role is full of her cracktastic Orange Caramel-like energy. I hope she’s having as much of a blast as it looks like she is! The directing is also complementing her SO well with such on-point editing.

I feel like there are lots of roles lately where the female leads have the chance to just go all-out and I love it.

Also, kdramas seriously just keep getting prettier and prettier as the years go by! Recently so many of them have been truly cinematic.

    I first saw her in Roommate (variety/reality show) back in 2014. I didn’t realize that she was good until I watch movie The Swindlers. It’s so good to see her improve and play different roles 😊

    She was also good in the Good Wife. Maybe I was already so biased when I watched the show because I was blinded by her beauty. She’s doing really good here too.

    This is my first time watching her, and I really like her.

    It’s getting harder for me to watch older k-dramas given how cinematic newer ones are.

    Kill It was a mess but she and JKY were just so pretty in it that I had to just tune in. (Another underrated idol actress that I think is able to generate a lot of charisma onscreen is Dasom of Sistar.)

The idea that anyone would willingly go from South Korea to America right now is laughable

Ugh get me out of this country

If the first people in your phone’s face-identifying folders aren’t Korean actors are you even a kdrama stan

…this is actually kind of sad

    Frankly I am just shocked that Jung So-min is not one of your top five! 😆

      I’m not sure this is a top 5 but actually a first 5–I got this phone when I was watching both The Lies Within and Mixed-up Investigative Agency!

      Now I really wanna know what the top 5 are ..

Not to be dramatic or anything but I still can’t believe it’s physically possible for a human being to look like this and sometimes I think he’s fake and those cheekbones don’t actually exist

Pick a new drama already you beautiful idiot

I got requests for more Lee Min-ki content from both @egads and @bogoshipda so I guess I have to do it

Today I almost cried when I saw that OCN made all of the BTS clips for The Lies Within unavailable in the US. These are some of my favorite LMK clips. He’s always lovely and charming in behind-the-scenes footage, but there was something about him on this set–he seemed so at ease, so comfortable. I don’t know if it’s because of his longstanding work relationship with the director (she also directed his first-ever lead drama role in 2005), but it was so wonderful to see. Guess I’ll have to get a VPN to watch them now.

Whether he was running in the late summer heat, being freaked out by Lee Yoo-young playing with a beetle, being taunted with food he couldn’t eat, being flattered on his acting skills by a veteran actor, or injuring himself while fake-punching someone else, he always had a smile on his face.

I love seeing him show off his versatility, but I really want him to do a drama where he just plays his quiet, quirky, easy-to-laugh self.

    Classic LMK hurting himself fake punching someone else.

    Thanks Mindy.

    “He’s always lovely and charming in behind-the-scenes footage, but there was something about him on this set–he seemed so at ease, so comfortable. ”
    Isn’t it becos he gets to act action scenes and the sets were outdoor most of the time? He seems more easy going and relaxed here…
    Btw I found this very old interview, and want to share w you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZeKf5xIl8U

The only time I accept a wrist grab is when it’s used for the character who’s grabbed to wrench out of it with no mercy

This guy is trash! Go Eun-hee! He doesn’t deserve to speak to you!

    I couldn’t believe he was like why didn’t you call me? I thought of all people you would understand. Gosh the gaslighting!!!

It’s been SO long since I’ve enjoyed reading Beanie comments on a recap so much! Just the right mix of squee and intellectual conversation–Beanies, I love you!

(I’m talking about It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, of course!)

Seo Ye-ji during that scene with her father, though. A+++

    YESSS OH MY GOODNESS. My first thought was, wow, she’s totally owning this episode. 🙌

I actually applauded at my screen at the very end of It\’s Okay to Not Be Okay. Actual chills. Bravo, director, writer, and Kwak Dong-yeon.

    Kwak Dong-yeon is a national treasure – as soon as I saw him onscreen, I knew we were in for a special performance!

      To be honest, he’s sometimes a bit over-the-top for my tastes, but it worked here.

        His cameo in Doctor Detective’s first episode was brilliant, not over the top at all. He played a very quiet, caring, beat-down man who was slowly being worked to death. I barely got into that show because it was so boring, but his episode was a good hook.

          I find it interesting that he hasn’t played a lead yet (unless you count Never Twice). Why can’t Kim Yoo-jung do projects with someone like him instead of men a decade older than her?!

    Netflix translations need to be taken with some salt.

I’m so sorry for spamming the fan wall with music videos but I just found this MV (it’s from 2018, I know, I’m late) where Naeun plays a sad gay and I’m screaming.

You know, I felt more emotion for Naeun in this MV than I ever have for her in any drama I’ve seen her in, and maybe it’s just because I relate to it but guys, maybe this is the issue. She can only deliver when she’s pining after a woman.

On a similar lesbicious point, has anyone seen Hello Dracula? I have it downloaded but am scared to press play!

    We need to have a pride month beanie playlist!!! I was just thinking that we need another summer playlist, but didn’t want to just do a random one because we might end up getting similar or the exact same songs as the previous ones. What do you think?

Was checking out Kim Na-young’s new song when I saw that her new music video stars Kim Hye-yoon! I really hope she takes the new drama from the SKY Castle team. My trash daughter Ye-seo still has a big place in my heart and I have faith this team will succeed once again.
