Beanie level: Water maid

On watching TKEM:
im on early part of episode 6 right now. And weirded out with the love story. For now.

Lee Gon’s love for Taeul seems more of obsession rather than affection. Hes been searching for her for 25 years after all.

Koo PM’s love simply for the throne, not the person (at least up to ep 5, i dont know if they decided to reveal something else later on).

And Taeul’s. This one really irked me. At what point did she started to fall for him?
All he did during his ROK stint are wooing her. With words and wealth. Wealth that not used to treat her at that.
…and she fell for it? I thought she is a level headed police officer?
It must be Lee Minho effect then. Because if its less visually attractive man, he would quickly be prisoned for uttering those nonsense.
🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

So i started to watch the king eternal monarch. Any tips or tricks?

*note: i’ve always start a drama on second half of episode one, at the earliest (this is what i did for tkem). Some even on episode 3 or 4 (hospital playlist was on episode 4.😅). Because most of the time, the beginning are soo~ boring i might drop the drama altogether before i even reach the story.

    Nooooo. Doesn’t TKEM first scene set the whole thing in motion? Did you miss the palace attack? (I may be misremembering, but I’d swear it’s right at the beginning)

      The first thing i saw was a man with a ring in his little finger got stranded in sea shore (?). Should i go back? From that scene i can guess something did happened towards one of the royal, but he didnt died? And one of his lackey is now a salt farmer. 🤣🤣

      I agree with @flyingcolours that you at least need to watch the first portion with the palace attack.

        I decided to just keep going guys. And up to ep. 5, havent regreted it. So far, ive seen some of the snipped as flashbacks. If later on i find the plot is confusing (its already started to confused me with the characterization, btw.) I might go back and watch that missing scene.

      Ill surely do it. So far ive been mesemerized by the castles. The exterior scream royal loudly, look like those european classic old castle, but also look modern so much😆.

        I truly enjoyed this ride; however, some argue that the only things that are good in this one are the things I told you about.

So i just commented in a post about begin again that makes me think about its thai version and further about thai drama in general: dear thai beanie friends, is it that easy to get married (and divorced) in thailand? Why does like 4 out of 5 dramas i’ve watched (by percentages. I’ve watched more) are about contract or forced or forced contract marriage? 🤣🤣. Or i just picked the wrong title in general?

    As I haven’t seen Begin Again but know the situation about marriages and divorces in Thailand in general, can you tell me exactly in which aspect you’re seeking your answer?

      Is it that easy to get married and divorce in thailand? Just come to the official registration and done in a few hours?

      Because here in indonesia, as much as i know (im unmarried), we need to be married in our religion to be able to regist for civil marriage. And as a catholic, it takes weeks to get the “license” alone. So its got me a bit of culture shock, i guess.

      Or i just somehow trapped in a weird genre of thai drama?

      1
      1

        You are right, it’s that easy. Registering for marriage here is as easy as going to the registration place and get it done within a few hours perhaps. The divorce is also that easy if both parties agree to it. There is nothing religious involved in terms of legal matters.

          Ahahaha thankyou for ur explanation. I just so… culture shock (?) that i think to my self, Why so much contract marriage? Cant they have normal marriage between 2 lovers and not 2 strangers? 🤣🤣🤣.

          I’m not married neither, but that’s pretty some general knowledge.

          Glad I could be of some help. 😊

I missed this last night!

The most legendary idol of all time:

One (two) hit(s) wonder;

Share their name with a bunch groups of extremely goodlooking 4 boys around asia every few years (some young enough tobe their sons);

quetionable singing ability; yet

Able to hold worldwide tour consert within few years they active promoting as boyband, not something even on this youtube era idols could easily do; and

Hugely celebrated everytime they reunited on the stage as special performers.

😍😍😍

    During the 2000s, F4 became successful across Asia, but unfortunately it didn’t caught attention by crossing the two Atlantic sides (US/UK) from this Asian boyband before BTS.

Lee Jehoon just got the honor as the first male i think that is yummy.

… i’ve never thought of a human being being yummy until him. (Hot, sexy, gorgeous, even breathtaking are a lot. Yummy is for food. Until him. I might want to eat him now. 😼🙈)

Kim Young Kwang is a runningman material. 🤣🤣. He just sit there unattached and munchs and sometimes laugh throught out the episode, and baam~ stole the scene as The Cheapskate. #sixsense

Everyone (or at least people i saw on ig) are hyping on \”how to be ShiAh\” for having extremely goodlooking father (both old and young version), twin bro, and two suitors. And here i am thinking how to be BoBae that she got to enjoy all those pretty faces without being entangled with the drama. (And how she actually not related to any of the boys mentioned. Girlfriend got better chances tbh.)

    in another world she (Si-Ah)’d be the FML of a shoujo manga/kdrama lol and BoBae would be the FML of the newly trendy genre in korean comics “I was reborn as a side character but suddenly I am the main female lead” (Extraordinary You, for example – there are many more manhwas like that recently!)

Na PD’s team is scary. Once you out, you OUT. Seunggi, Taeccyeon, Nam Joohyuk, now Jaehyun.

    Kyuhyun went back. Back in 1n2d, Jongmin was able to get back.

    Might just be schedule and agency negotiations…

    I think it’s already predicted though? AJH case is a little bit recent, and slightly connected to NJTTW – KHS lamenting AJH drinking with Kyu instead of coming home for example. For Na PD, there’s probably a lot of factors – i.e. tvn, or even AJH himself. Lest we forget, NJTTW started with the men who had scandals with LSG as the monk 🙂 KHD with tax evasion scandal, EJW with his divorce scandal and LSGoon with his gambling scandal – these seems forgotten now but back in the day they were struggling to go back. AJH’s case is a little bit different as netizens are on a fence with KHS statements (which can come off a little bit petty but will never know). LSG is very busy with his schedule as usual 😂 and the other actors would’ve different plans probably.

    Seunggi is still part of Na PD’s group right? Just not in NJTTW?

      He’s not currently in Na PD’s show I believe, but he’s always on Kang Ho Dong’s line so he’s always welcome 🙂

    When did Seunggi, Taecyeon and Joo-hyuk was outed??

    That’s not true. Seungi is not out.. seungi is out by choice.. when he can lead shows, go global why would he continue being part of an ensemble cast with split screentime and obviously balanced pay?
    ****************
    Actually Na PD is fairly loyal.. he said, if Myong wanted to come back, he would help him whichever way..

    AJH also will comeback and that shows commitment of the team towards him

    ******************
    Other actors are also out because they wanted to focus on other stuff.. plus a person also has to make for a good editorials (e.g. NJH is very controlled and conscious.. so while you can have him in one show, you can’t have him as main character in another full length variety show.. same story to tell, nothing new)
    *******************
    Guest appearances show you well that he keeps going back to him team/network
    *********************
    I think there is additional PO factor. They don’t want to lose him.. mostly at behest of Hodong..

    Once mino goes to military, space opens up

    why her though? she seems to really like her sister and cares for her.

      Doesnt she care too much? Her life pretty much revolve around hajin.
      And, her whereabout always questionable whenever the photos are taken. Especially the very first one, the cafe photo.
      And, the terror started after hajin asked her about the exgirlfriend/bestfriend and she started thinking that jeonghoon is the boyfriend.
      And she is good in selfdefense.
      Granted, the motorcycle incident proofed her innocence, but she could pay someone tho, as the reporter also being paid.

Saw some clips on instagram about new c-drama I Will Never Let You Go / Legend of Hua Buqi, and its crazy to think how Ariel Lin doesn\’t look older (she even look younger at some angles) than Zhang Binbin.
And even crazier, how, after 15ish years, this HuaBuqi looks almost literally the same as ISWAK Yuan Xiangqin

    During are rewatches of ISWAK and TKA, me and @isthatacorner have surmised that she just gets more beautiful as she gets older, and this is due to sorcery and perhaps not being human. Seriously, it is not fair.

      Ikr? Like we know HaJiwon and JangNara aged reaaally slowly, but Ariel pretty much isn’t aging. She just getting more and more beautiful.

      Nope. Just saw the clips on instagram. With c-drama, i think its better to wait until they finished and wait for the reviews. Because they often ruin the ending.

          You apparently watch it live! Is it good? Is it a romcom or just romantic? I’ll keep watching your fanwall to see if you squee or rant about this drama 😆😆😆😆😆

            It’s a mix of both, romance but has quite a bit of comedic moments, too!! The plot is something I’ve seen before, so nothing new, but the anchor of this drama truly lies in the cast, the chemistry of the cast, and the acting— which, all 3 elements right now is doing quite a good job for my preferences 😁😁 Each episode gets deeper into the characters stories, reasoning (though, some reasoning is standard unlogical drama logic, but because I’ve seen so many dramas, I’m use to it, and this drama doesn’t rely too much on makjang) and motivations in all they do and I anticipate when all the secrets of all of our characters will finally come out so I can see what the aftermath will be… In terms of the pace of the drama, I like where it’s at— only 15 episodes (total is 50/51 episodes) so far, but a lot of relationships, friendships, human-to-human bonds are happening, and the romance is picking up, too!!
