    Haha, I did the same thing last night–rang in the new year by hopping back on here and celebrating Kim Go-eun’s upcoming drama comeback! Woot woot! Happy new year, hon! I’ll have to look into this drama news, but I’m loving this pairing!

Ahhhh I loved this song so much and the MV is a so visually attractive! How I wish the song was longer!
Still going through the whole album choosing my faves!

P.S. Seungyoon cameoed in Mino’s MV!

Also now that I am here already, lemme also scream abt how I am watching SIX live shows!?!?!?!?! Like, I haven\’t done this for more than an year now. Actually, scratch that. I feel like I haven\’t done this since 2016!!! No sign of drama slump at all! I guess the reason is a mix of good shows & Covid related joblessness!

I am watching (in order of how much I am enjoying):
1. 18 Again (LOVE LOVE LOVE)
2. Record Of Youth (started kinda awkward/artificial but is now fun)
3. Private Lives (That was an interesting start… yet to watch this week\’s eps)
4. Tale of The Nine Tailed (I like it? I dunno if I love it.)
5. Do You like Brahms (How I loved you show. But now… I am just waiting for you to get over)
6. Do Do Sol Sol… (Lee Jae Wook & Shopping King Louis feels. That\’s the only reason I am watching this for now)

How are you all?? What shows are you watching?

    I picked up several on air dramas this week but I’m not up to date: 18 Again (ep 1), RoY (ep 2), Gumiho (ep 3). I don’t rush to watch them as soon as subs are out, I’m taking my time to watch. Tonight I might watch Alice ep 13(?).

    And….I’m waiting for Kairos. I’m quite preoccupied with the many teasers, I want all eps now 🤣 hahahaha

    1
    1

      Oooh how is Alice? I heard some comments on Kairos teasers saying sth along the lines of how “nothing will be like Alice again/ I dunno if I have the brain power left for time travel after Alice/ Alice has ruined me” and so on lol…

      18 Again is my fave… it’s just so good!

      Yusss… I need Kairos now!

    Joblessness does get one in a drama hole, telling from experience 😂
    But everyone’s gushing about 18 again so much that I will have to tune in today. It’s such a bummer that no legal streaming service picked it up (I heard it’s on iqiyi though only limited to EA and SEA).

      Hhahah yeah that’s what is happening!
      I caught up with it just this week and honestly it’s my fave outta dramas I have watched in 2020 till now… I hope it continues being this precious…
      And yeah, it’s a pity its not on Netflix… I would have loved to watch it there!

      Omg yes please! There’s like 8 of us in the recap comment section now, so sad 🙁 this drama deserves so much love. You’ll be laughing, crying, but happy that you cried and feel warmth in your heart. Please watch and come back to gush with us!

    Its the line up. 2017-19 dramas are rarely good. Even if we had the time, even the teasers are not teasing enough. I personally branching to thai drama, and fall for the ones with 1950s setting. The dresses are uber cute.

    We have a tight schedule beanies! 😂
    I currently have 7 aside from my weekly variety shows and trying to watch them all from Monday-Sunday. I am still waiting for The Spies Who Loved Me and Kairos so it’s going to be more hectic in coming weeks.
    I have 18 Again and Zombie Detective for Mon-Tuesday. Private Lives, DDSSL and Gumiho for Wed-Thurs. For Sat-Sun, I have Lies of Lies (I need to get caught up) and More Than Friends.
    So many dramas, so little time 😆
    Fighting beanies!

    18 Again, Do Do, Brahms for me but I’ll start Start Up today. Running Man and Sixth Sense air once a week so it’s alright. How do we only have 24 hours in a day??? 😂

    back on DB after ~1 month away ^^’ , how are you Muchie ? hoping you’re doing well😘. I’m fine except some anxiety playing boomerang, it comes and goes ^^’.
    I watched forest of secrets s2 but haven’t started any other Kdrama since. I’m watching a Cvariety show right now : Great escape s2 only 2 eps left. Also have started Njttw s8 😀 !

    1
    1

      Oooh! So I posted right when you came back! Nice timing!
      Oh hope the anxiety goes away soon…

      Isn’t Great Escape the one with Lee Seung Gi?
      And yassss NJTTW8 is finally here! 2 eps down already! Mino’s is abt to release an album on the same day as ep 4 so I am waiting for Na PD to drop spoilers in ep3 already like he did with Fiance lol.

      I am waiting for Kairos to air cuz Seungyoon is making his return as an actor after Prison Playbook!

      1
      1

        thank you 🙂

        The great escape is a K-variety show about escape game with Kang HoDong, Kim JongMin and other celebrities. I tried a few eps but it didn’t work that well with me.
        I’ve started the S2 of the Chinese version (’cause S1 isn’t subbed ^^’) , I knew some of the cast from previous drama, I’m enjoying that version a lot more ^^.

        Oh good to know, thanks ^^, I’ll check out his songs 🙂 , will look out for spoilers x)

        Will most likely not watch Kairos, Kdrama slump still there, I don’t feel attracted to them, might have watched only 4-5 Kdramas maximum this year (not the same amount for the Chinese ones ^^’). Hoping it’ll be a nice drama and you’ll enjoy the ride 🙂

          Sounds fun! I am not watching a lotta variety yet but man I miss K-variety!

          Surprisingly, I am getting back to drama land. 2020 has been kind to me dramawise. And thank you, I loved the first 2 eps of Kairos and I too am hoping it remains this good!

    Unnniii~!!!!! Hellooo!!!!!!
    Oooh your order of enjoyment is interesting to me…
    I started Record of Youth but am only a couple of episodes in and not sure if I should continue or not. It seems a bit… hmmm. Artificial is probably a good word for it haha.
    Tale of the Nine Tailed I like in all it’s campy crazy glory.
    Do You Like Brahms- ahh yes I was just telling Toki about how I stalled watching 14 so I could just binge the end and get it over with. The angst is real and almost everyone who isn’t a lead makes me MAD!
    I just started DDSSLLS last night, so will hold fire on commenting on that one.
    What is 18 Again about? I’ve seen it around but know nothing, for I am Jon Snow.

      RoY gradually got better but I can’t really say that it is a perfect show… I just still wait for every week’s eps n enjoy them while watching? But later I forget em lol.

      18 Again is a remake of the Zac Effron movie 17 Again (which I enjoyed as a simple no-brainer kinda movie) but tbh, this one has more depth than that movie ever did. It’s abt this 38 or so yr old guy who is tired of his sucky life n wants to go back to his shiny teens, and he does. So now he is the same age as his twin kids. Sounds weird in theory perhaps, but the show has fleshed out each character & there seems to be some mystery around as well (unlike 17 Again)

    Now you need to watch Start Up. RoY and Brahms disappointed me, but Start Up has me hooked. I may, like @festerfaster, dislike the second half, but so far I’m all in.

      TBH I never got back to Brahms lol so the last 4 eps are still left unwatched. Didnt even go back to Private Lives, Nine Tail and Do do sol sol!
      Just watching 18AGain which is as lovely as ever and Kairos for now… Might start StartUp soon

Logged in just to profess my newfound yet undying love for 18 Again.

This show is so good and needs more appreciation! Just got done watching ep8 n I can\’t be bothered taking screenshots but trust me, this ep broke me with both sadness and happiness.

So MBC had released this character relationship chart sometime back where the red line meant love interest.

Now, Ahn Bo Hyun and Yoonie have been really pally on Insta so ICs had been joking about the real love story being that between ABH and Seungyoon, making edits to the original poster for fun. An IC even posted it on her IG story as a joke and Bo Hyun viewed it! 😅😅 ICs embarrassing Yoon in front of his colleagues LMAO!

Okay hear me out, WINNER boys are considered one of the tallest kpop boys (maybe like 4th or 5th overall?)

Kang Seungyoon is a giant when with other kpop idols. But here he looks like a tiniee baby🥺

I am so happy that our giant maknae leader will actually look like the baby he is in this show! Can’t wait to watch it!

@azzo1\’s love story is making me believe all over again that kdramas/ 90s Bollywood love stories/ all the seemingly impossible fairy tales can be real as well!

Congratulations girl! SO happy for you

    Ikr. Azzo’s story has made me regain faith in fate more than kdramas ever did.

      Same! Kdrama ideal love stories seemed unrealistic many times but this is an actual real life story. It HAS happened. They had a meet-cute, they dated, they fought a little, they made up and then they are gonna get married. Like, this has all the elements of a good love story but this is REAL!

        Yes it’s too good to be true but so glad that it is true and a real life/love story.

        We only ever had one fight which he doesn’t consider a fight! Apparently, I was the only one sulking the whole day that day!

So thankyou for posting this 😀

        Maybe I should.. like.. through a mini wedding party here on DB for the beanies?

        (Also, we’re planning a very, very small wedding, 25 people max.. my mom is going to kill me)

          Hehhehe yesss!! Sounds like a very necessary event on DB! You must!

          1

            We have a date now 🙈

            (Too little of a number!!! My mom wants us to wait till this whole Pandemic is over so she could throw a huge wedding, we have a lot of functions, we have Henna (Mehndi), we have Chandan (almost like your Haldi), there is one called Garu (they put gold coins on your feet- don’t ask me why) and then there is Mubaraki (I don’t even know how to explain this).. I never thought I’d say this but I’m taking advantage of this situation and holding myself the smallest wedding possible!)

      OMG!!!! 2 months from now! 2 months and we see the fairytale story coming to a classic beginning: “and they lived happily ever after”

      I wish you all the best things in the world azzo! You deserve it all! I am so frigging happy for you!

      (Ooooh I can imagine your mother’s disappointment but yay for you! Weddings honestly sound very boring longish social things which I would rather not deal with and a small 25 ppl gathering is perfect! Good for you to use this time wisely hehhe!

      Although the different functions sound cute but I am sure I would dislike actually having to go through them lol… Mubaraki sounds like a reception? where family and friends give the coupl “mubarakein”, right?)

        Stop it, seriously ☺
        Also, thank you so much 😭❤

        (Yes, she is, very, but she’s already planning how to fit everything in one day, LOL! She’s told me, like just notifying me, that Chandan will happen whether I want it or not, so I told her to make it just for us at home and she said she’ll see (but really, we are not allowed any sorts of big gathering, we’ll be fined 😂).

        Some of them are, I really love the gold coin one because later when you’re married and when you get pregnant they use the same coins and stich them to your dress for a baby shower.. it’s weird but really cute at the same time. And yes, Mubarki is something like that with a twist.. we have a lot of weird rasmein 😂)

      I took too long too come back and now I am late to this!

      Hope all the wedding preparations are going well and ooh isn’t your birthday also coming? (15th Aug right? that’s one of the reasons I called you an honorary Indian na?)

      I still can’t believe that your fairytale came true so I am guessing you would also still be in shock hehhe… I don’t come here often as much but I will be back for your birthday and obviously around your wedding…. Gotta see how the lovely bride is doing then and not let her have any cold feet hehhe

        Yes, so far so good, everything is slowly coming together.. one thing that has been giving me stress though is getting the apartment ready. I always thought getting your own place, furnishing it and decorating it will be fun.. well,..!

        Yes, the 15th, SNG’s was yesterday (yup, both August babies ☺). Haha.. I’ll be counting on you then!

        Yes, I took a break from DB before the wedding, I’ll probably take another break after checking all my notifications (478 notifs.. yeah).

I finished 365: Repeat The Year!!!! 🎉🎉

In short: I loved it a lot and this was perhaps one of the most satisfying kdrama endings!

If I were to elaborate just a little: This show wasn’t without it’s plot-holes and stupid moments, but overall this ended so well that I am willing to overlook the small inconsistencies. Funny enough, I was going to have sth completely diff to say if the last 10 mins of ep 12 hadn’t happened cuz till then ep 12 seemed like the weakest ep of the entire show, but it just did a total U turn and I ended up being REALLY satisfied with it all!

I loved that the drama had twists left till the last moment! The actors were gooooood, not just the main leads, but everyone! I also loved that it was just 12 eps long and didn’t stretch the plotline. It was a compact and smart plot!

I have loved Nam Ji Hyun since SKL and she came through on my expectations from her. Lee Joon-Hyuk, on the other hand, was a revelation. I haven’t seen him as the main lead before and don’t honestly remember him from shows I have watched (City Hunter, Are You Human?, Secret Garden) but I finally SEE him and I am gonna check out whatever project he takes up next!

Anyway, all in all, a show to remember!

    I’m happy that you enjoyed it!!! Lee Joon Hyuk was funny and amazing in A Poem A Day. Inthink he was a prosecutor in City Hunter but I don’t remember him in Secret Garden. 😅

      I’m such a big fan of LJH.
      Loved him whether he plays the good guy, the not so good guy, the bad guy. He chooses so different roles, I admire him for that. He’s amazing in Stranger, Designated Survivor, A Poem A Day, Naked Fireman, City Hunter (I was so angry with his ending), or Are you Human too?
      Yes… I’m not objective with him… not a little bit 🤷🏼‍♀️

    I’ve just finished this too. Such a satisfying thriller. It’s been so long since the the last time I watched one. I’m glad the production team know enough to choose shorter eps count instead of dragging all the plots to fill in the rest of the eps.

For all that I bitch abt The King: The Eternal Monarch, ep11 was actually good!

Kim Go-eun finaly got to show off her acting chops, so did Min Ho! Do I still see plot holes? Yes! But, this was the 1st time I didnt sleep in the middle of the ep! In fact the ep was over n I still wanted more!

P.S. I am not used to DB slow posting anymore huhuhu! Hence the spam! Mianhae. I will re- learn.
