Beanie level: Water maid

THE CROWNED CLOWN: There’s always the character I dislike, in this series it’s Hasun’s sister, I should feel sorry for her but I don’t. She’s a stickybeak with a big mouth who causes trouble for him.

THE CROWNED CLOWN: I love this series, who doesn’t love Yeo Jin-joo? Great acting from Yang-Nam Jang. Our Queen Dowager has one hell of a temper tantrum! Magnificent!

GUNMAN IN JOSEON: Sageuk with guns. A loyal guard is framed for treason, his son is killed, daughter enslaved. Years later son returns to extract justice and clear his father’s name. Thrills & romance

HELLO, it’s been a month or more since I last posted. Shame on me! Hope you are all safe and well, we are in Lockdown – AGAIN! Watching my beloved Kdramas keeps me sane and happy. Here’s a few pics.

    We need to be on lockdown.

      It isn’t much fun – cannot travel more than 5km from your home, no visiting, no cinemas, retail stores closed except for supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, post office and doctors. And petrol stations. Except for government jobs, and those who are able to work from home, people have no income. Very hard for many. If you’re not in lockdown, you’re lucky.

AUTUMN’S CONCERTO
I was going to write about this series here, but realised the Autumn’s Concerto I saw is Taiwanese – different to the Korean one of the same name. I will add some images though.

    I don’t think there’s a Korean series named Autumn’s Concerto. Are you thinking of Winter Sonata?

    I watched this show aaaaaages ago! I hardly remember a thing, except my brother found the little kid annoying, lol!

WEIGHTLIFTING Fairy 🧚🏽‍♀️ KIM BOK-JOO: Delightful series, you feel part of their lives, believable, heartfelt coming of age, leaves you smiling. Shows true friends and friendships.

    This is a very funny, lovely and very well-done coming-of-age show. I particularly found everything so pretty in this one, especially the FL’s dorm and how she dressed herself.

      Hello mmmmm,

      Yes, it is all that, and more. And Joon-hyung climbing through the window and having to hide in the wardrobe of that pretty dorm all for the sake of a pizza 🍕!

        Hello Netsuke! One of the scenes I loved the most is the scene when their friends realized that they were a thing! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

          Hello mmmmm,
          Yes that was pretty funny. The little giggler was so cute and her other friend so serious. I did find myself wondering if South Korean 21 year olds really behaved in the manner, they seemed so much younger. Cute, but totally without guile. Lovely series. I felt bad for Joon hyung who couldn’t hit a target to win a price for his girlfriend, but Bok-joo takes the gun or the mallet and bam bam bam! She hits every mark and wins the prize!

          Kdrama have done this in the last few series I have watched. Soo embarrassing for the lads!

THE LIES WITHIN: Brilliant, on-the-edge-of-your-seat brilliant, I couldn’t breathe, shocked seeing the heart, the deepest bond between Young-min and Ho-goo stayed true friends to the end thought provoking

Having watched The Lies Within, I needed to just veg out on something light and fluffy, no thrills, no good guys and bad guys, so I started watching Touch Your Heart. It’s the most boring series ever!

HE IS PSYCHOMETRIC: Very good series and plot. Seung Moo was flawed but tried making up for the past by taking care of Lee An and Jae-in. Eun Ji-soo was the brightness who held everyone together.

I am excited! I have been elevated from Jang Geu-rae to Watermaid, which in Korean is Musuri. In Korean history, the most famous musuri was Royal Consort Suk-bin Choi, mother of Yi Geum, King Yeongjo.

BEAUTY INSIDE: I am liking this most improbable story so very much. Seo Do-Jae has the most kissable mouth, Han Se-gye is the soft lightness, & Ryu Eun-ho is like a startled doe. He needs a Kang Sa-ra

BEAUTY INSIDE: Slow moving, plods along, two lovers – he acts like he has a poker up his khyber pass, & she’s plain annoying! Episode 5 – his mother catches him in bed with – a school boy? Loved it!

        @drawde2000 I thought it was still available on Viki (it isn’t!). Netflix recently added Beyond Evil so I have hope that they will add more shows. If not, then I may consider moving 😉

FLOWER 🌹 OF EVIL: Excellent on-the-edge-of-your-seat drama, Lee Joon-gi’s acting skills immerse you in Hyunsoo’s world. After waking from his coma, I believe he became who he really was deep inside.

        When I have enjoyed a series so much, I look at other works the actor has played, and so far looking at what Lee Joon-gi has been in, I realise I have already watched three of his earlier offerings – Arang and the Magistrate, The Scholar Who Walks the Night and Hotel Del Luna. I didn’t watch all of The Scholar because vampires aren’t my thing, to me, vampires and zombies are boring.

        Moon Lovers and Lawless Lawyer both interest me, but afaik neither is on Netflix which leaves YouTube. I love Sageuk, would love to watch Iljimae.

          I want to watch his other dramas too but time and so many other dramas to watch.
          And internet connection of course
          I need to download so I can watch so I need a good internet connection and lots of hard drives 😅

            @netsuke I know that YouTube is free but I didn’t know that you can find everything you want to watch using it.

    I just want Lee Joon-gi to tell us he’s actually dating/married to MCW. That would make me super happy. (It’s not gonna happen though.)

      Yes, I believe your right. It’s something in the eyes, when he turns he’s head and looks out of the corner of his eye, he can be quite….good at being scary!

    He was so good in this. It made me search out and watch as many of his earlier dramas that I could find. There are still some to locate. Moon Lovers was amazing as long as you are prepared for the ending. But I want to find the Time Between Dog and Wolf and the King and the Clown.

      I have started watching Moon Lover on YouTube. Now you have me wondering about the ending. But I won’t cheat. The other two you mention aren’t on Netflix either. I checked. Maybe try YouTube?

FLOWER 🌸 OF EVIL: The suspense is killing me. I don’t think I can take it anymore, I’m still on episode 7 I keep having to stop do something else. So tempted to cheat and see the last episode! Help!

    dont watch last episode.. it won’t help either.
    this show will keep you on the edge every single episode and will not reveal the main plot even then..
    so keep your patience and continue watching slow n steadily episode by episode…

      Yes please do as adviced , LJK deserves this much.
      It was one of his best roles ,he could’ve won best actor if Shin Ha Kyung wasn’t more amazing in beyond evil

          I mean living with his family using his real name.
