    Yummy!
    Do you squeeze the water from the spinach like most Koreans do? I hardly taste the bitterness when mixed with gochujang.

      The fresh spinach cooks down in the soy sauce, water, and garlic I steam it in before adding it to the rice, so the liquid goes into the rice. I use fresh baby spinach that is usually not bitter.

    Whenever you make and take pics of your bibimbab, I really wish I was there with you and you would give me part of it to eat. There are so many things to prepare!

      I do post it when I’m eating it with dramas. It is a lot of steps but I’m usually in the mood for it so I don’t mind. and I wish I could share it with you and watch a drama together !

    Friday update: completed deadline 1! Last night I snuck in 2 eps of Crash Landing on You with my brother, and this morning (after hitting the send button on a job), I watched this week’s Radio Star. I can’t go cold turkey until Feb 22, I just can’t! Feeling better, now, with a little Kdrama relief. But now, back to the grindstone on deadline 2. I’ll be back!

    Happy OT Friday, beanies. It is especially happy for me as I made my deadlines yesterday, and then fell into a K-drama catch-up coma . Here’s what I watched in the last 24 hours: I Am Solo season 19, Radio Star ep 855, My Little Old Boy ep 382, Between Him and Her 8, 9, King of Mask ep 439, Dr. Slump ep 8, Queen of Divorce ep 8. Now I am making bibbimbap for dinner and plan on settling in for more catching up. Ahhh, nothing like a personal drama reward weekend after a stressful crunch couple of weeks!

I Am Ground, a new variety show where 4 male celebs travel to countries to play games. They\’re in Greece for ep 1, I wonder if it will be a hit or not …

    … depends on the games … perhaps!?

      Dwfinitely. So far the vacationers from Albania played Red Light Green Light with our Korean hosts because they knew it from Squid Game. It could be fun and good editing helps so we’ll see. This type of show is fun because, unlike K-dramas where I have to keep on top of subtitles, I can do other small things as I watch.

A lot happened in Queen of Divorce eps 1 & 2, and I am SO excited for our \”business partners\” (ahem …)!

February showed up again
The groundhog crawled out from its den
Good news! Springtime is on the way,
Cherry blossoms save the day!
And tho\’ 29 days are gray and gloomy,
RL is brightened by K-drama viewing.
We can do it Beanies, never fear-a
Nothing\’s as bad as the Joseon era.
Before 16 more episodes even begin
Winter goes out and spring will March in.

My brother and I finished the last episode of Samdal-ri last night. He said he didn\’t want it to end and it was like saying goodbye to friends. Is he hopelessly hooked like a beanie or what?!

    From what you described, the only thing that he hasn’t done is to make an account here. The sooner the level system begins, the faster you level up, he knows that, right?

    What did he think of Sangdo’s character? Did he get second lead syndrome or think he needed to move on?
    Does he have a top ten dramas list?
    How long have you been encouraging him to join the K drama party?

      Haha my brother did say Sangdo added another layer to the story which he liked.

      And, I may have mentioned this already, but we got TV trays for Christmas that we use to watch K-dramas while eating dinner! Tonight we started Like Flowers 🌸 n Sand. It’s 3 am as I write this because after our joint dramas, I ran upstairs to catch episodes of My Happy Ending, Between Him and Her, King of Masked Singer, and How Do You Play! I will pay dearly for this tomorrow with only 4 1/2 hrs of sleep, good night all ~

If you\’ve been following,, my brother and I finished 20 eps of The Legend of the Blue Sea. Some open ends remained, but we thought it ended satisfactorily. Just skip spoiler ep 0!

As you know, I am watching The Legend of the Blue Sea with my brother. He took the news that it’s 20 episodes better than expected. What’s funny is that he’s watched enough dramas to anticipate a trope, and when there was a city crosswalk cliffhanger with the mother and son on each end facing each other waiting for the light to change, he said, “Oh oh, we have to wait until tomorrow to see who gets hit!” The next evening, we tuned in, and low and behold, both mother and son cross safely and embrace after years of being separated. He said, “I can’t believe they set it up that way but there wasn’t a tragedy!” 😂 can I say he’s moving from rookie K-drama viewer to a true regular? 😂 There are only two episodes left which we will finish tomorrow night, and I have to say it’s been really fun watching all 20 eps together!

        Parts of that drama are funny and self-aware – the Jo Jeong-suk Jealousy Incarnate cameo is one of the best cameos ever – but so much else falls flat. So I was never sure if they were subverting the trope or just didn’t realise what they’d set up.

          Truly, the cameo was the best! And with 20 episodes, there is a lot of filler. Also, there are a lot of family side stories that could have been cleaned up (not so messy and confusing) or eliminated. I do like the parallel stories in two eras, and ALL the characters appearing in similar roles in both time times.

    Now I’m spoiled a bit but that’s good! I think I watched it to ep12 or 13 recently and stopped because the prospect of having like 7-8 more eps to go. Now that I know this I might just as well go back and watch the rest.

      I should have given a spoiler warning even for an older drama, sorry. I Hope you’ll still watch mmmmm! Believe me, there are plenty more tropes that deliver, haha!
