Beanie level: Entertainer-in-training

I binged Queen of Tears in 3 days and boy it was GOOD!
I can see why it was such a big hit while it was airing, and that wardrobe of HI!

    So glad you enjoyed it. It is perhaps better binged.

      I’ve been wondering about that since I haven’t watched it yet. Thanks for going first @mmmmm! I’ll keep QoT on my watch list 😀

        Yes. However, I think my drama taste has changed a bit. I might not like it had I watched it earlier, but right now seems like an ok time for me to watch it. Give it 2 eps trial. I was a bit meh about certain scenes, but by the end of ep2 I think I knew it’d be it.

      I really think it should be better binged simply because I binged and I liked it 😊

    Maybe since we have to read everything and they can just sit back and listen? 🤣 Also clearly from the mismatch between what I like and the SK ratings they must be bored while I am transfixed.

    Sure, we have to read everything. I watch English-language tv barely watching the same way and assume Koreans are glued to the subtitles when they watch foreign shows, right?

    If I do get distracted for a few seconds , I need to rewind and read the subs🤣🤣 Watching kdramas are hardwork, but they are rewarding for most of the time

    @owl22 @koalatown @minniegupta1 @isaGC @bbstl @emsel @Seeker At first I thought it was so funny because I watched Kdramas like that, too. But to think again, I think, and also agree with some of you, that we pay a lot of attention to Kdramas because they are different. We don’t understand words they say, and their culture is new to many of us. We watch to learn about different characters and a different culture while having fun with it. They would do pretty much the same if the shows they are watching is in another language.

      You have a very valid point M. The new culture and language is a very large part of our concentration. However I take my “entertainment” rather seriously. If I watch I do so carefully or not at all. 😅

BB Kim Seon-ho is back. Better still, he returns to a variety show hosted by his friend Moon Se-yoon.

You can search for Mukbo Brothers Eng subbed on YT. I think it has 4 eps.

            We should only watch / interact with what gives us happiness.

            What are you watching these days.

            Artists really touch your soul. There is no accounting for who you will fall for (love is blind after all) but some artists and their works really resonate with us, comfort us in times of happiness and sadness and just make life a little more bright and pleasant.
            Hope Kim Seon-ho does lots of good work and brings you lots and lots of happiness and joy. 🫰♥️

            Dear sweetest Cera, I’ve been absent for a while due to some personal issues, but thanks for missing me! I missed you, too, but life didn’t give much time for me to watch dramas. Anyway, BB always does magic on me. Whenever I see him, I smile.

            ☺️😊🥰

I’ve always had a soft spot for Lindsay Lohan, and I really liked Irish Wish. It’s whimsical, light, cute, and full of beautiful Irish sceneries. 🥰🥰🥰😘😘 It’s a movie on Netflix.

    Lately, I realized I’ve become too critical for my own good; so my resolution was to try things that I feel like trying without really checking out the reviews. As it turns out, Irish Wish has very low ratings on other review platforms, and I am so happy and relieved that I hadn’t seen the ratings before I started it. It turned out to be an enjoyable watch. :))

    I’ll just make a note in my mind that I shouldn’t this more often. My preferences are different from others anyway. 😂😊

      Agree way more drinking than medical for a medical drama 🤣. I think you have to willfully ignore the drinking for your own mental health but it’s totally worth it.

        Yes, I mean it’s excessive there! But because I could turn a blind eye on that, I could enjoy the story. I completely understand if some will be put off by it, though.

    My perspective kinda changed once I knew how much of a cultural thing drinking is in SK. Someone on reditt posted that a doctor (I don’t know how true, I haven’t seen it but it was on one of DS episode discussion boards) said that the doctors do not ask the patients to stop drinking, just ensure that there is enough gap between drinking and medication. Apparently it’s a well known ‘secret’.

    2
    1

      😮

      But genuine question, don’t most of them become alcoholic (sorry if this triggers anyone)? The amount of drinking depicted in dramas is outrageous? Or their alcohol is less strong compared to those in other countries? Do you have any idea?

      Or it’s just the drama thing not the real thing?

      1
      1

        Funny enough, the culture is not to drink everyday. But when you drink you can’t stop at one. There is sort of a peer pressure too about drinking and how much you can hold. So it’s once a month sort of a thing (at least that’s what the articles say).
        Liver problems are becoming the second most common disease in SK. However there is very little being done to change the culture. Apparently govt put up some kind of website warning the people how to be ‘careful’ while drinking (as opposed f that ever works). The only thing that they follow stringently is drinking and driving – which I realized the dramas never show. I’ve not seen a single scene where they are driving drunk (cue – cute piggy backing).
        I asked my Korean ahjhumas at our local K restaurant last night about this. One of them said ibinge-drinking is quite common but the new generation is not that into it so it’s changing. I found that interesting.

    Although a crystal one can probably still cost quite a penny. Loved how over the top he went because he was worried she wouldn’t like any of it.

    In a separate note the cockroach scene was priceless. If those things crawled out in my office I would be burning the place down. 🤣

      I must have developed some kind of cockroach tolerance. I’m afraid of them, but I’m not scared of them. You know that they can fly, too, right? 🤣 We have this joke here that it knows who is afraid of it the most in the room and it’ll fly in a bee line towards that person.

        Funny enough, I’ve only re-watched it once, and I liked it the first time around. At the same time, this is one of those dramas you gotta be in the right mood to be able to fully enjoy, and maybe when I did my re-watch, I wasn’t in the right mood to fully enjoy it

Finished My Best Friend’s Wedding (Julia Roberts) for the first time and thought it was so much fun!

Also finished the animated film The Book of Life and it is a treat to the eye. Spectacular.

    “My best friend’s wedding” is one of my favorite rom-com movies. I watched it when it was released in cinemas and at least once more at home.

    And I know I have watched “The book of Life” too, but I only remember it was visually beautiful.

      MBFW was a delightful watch! Someone trying to steal the groom! And that friend of hers! So funny. Julia portrayed the FL who is trying to destroy the wedding so endearingly I had lol moments a few times!

      And yes, TBOL is visually stunning. I kept wandering how far Spanish animated films had come.

      Loved him, too. Such a scene stealer. Tbh, I thought he was gonna say at the end that actually I’m straight and love you or something along the lines. His scenes are all iconic, and his energy matches well with Julia’s. I thought he outshone the ML a little bit also (in the sense that at some point, I began to question who was the ML?)

      He’s always great no matter what he plays. I pray and pray he’s a straight guy in MBFW – but a best friend in life is just as good.

            Yeah, I don’t know what their protocol is either. When I started watching Twilight saga, the fourth one (from 5) was missing and I had to wait for I don’t know how long until they somehow decided to add that one on NF. I had to finish the first 3, waited for the fourth, and watched the fourth when it was available long afterwards to finally begin the fifth which was the last.
