Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

Good news must be shared so here’s one: Chae Jong Hyeop is in a j-drama Eye Love You and as of ep 1, it (and him) is very kawaaii..

This year the only resolution I made was the useless yet entertaining one to compile all 2PM members Gym IG stories, when they’re together. Cause my 2PM boys are Always Meeting at the Gym! It’s a laugh for me at least.

So far I have just 4 shots in my collection, all of them featured Taec. From last year’s record, I don’t think Junho or Wooyoung ever appears but it’s always a combination of the other four.

Twenty Five Twenty One: the ending that makes rewatching hard.

    Skip it. That is how I do lots of my rewatches. Skip that one infuriating arc. Skip that one annoying character. Stop watching at the semi-final episode.

    Yeah, that one hurt sooo bad. Only the things that you love the most can hurt you that much. Twenty Five Twenty One was 14.5 episodes of utter perfection for me. I still love it to death despite the ending that utterly destroyed me. I remember watching it for the first time and having problems sleeping for 3 days straight.

    I’ve got to be one of the few who liked the ending 😅 I usually want a happy ever after with the leads, but appreciated how this one played out differently

      I don’t mind the happily-Not-Together ending, but the lead up to the break up didn’t feel quite right for the two leads. That’s what was so disappointing for me.

      I loved the ending too. It was narratively perfect, imo.

        It was a perfect ending imo, too, though I can’t say the same for the execution and directing in those couple of final eps. However, I agree that having this type of ending makes it hard for me to rewatch knowing what is waiting at the end.

    Thanks to this show I actually found peace with Secret of Forest’s ship. Now I’m happy they never got together, that means their beautiful relationship will never die.

    I’m also consciously not shipping the leads of The Bear. I don’t want a bad written romance to ruin the “rainbow” relationship they have right now.

    Thank you, 2521, you traumatized me. *deep breaths*

    I just finished When I Fly Towards you and it reminded me of 25 21 without that ending. WIFTY has a great rewatch value too. I mean quality wise K dramas are a class apart, but the innocence in the drama and the Nostalgia it evoked was very much like 25 21. Highly recommend

    Totally, no matter how good eps 1-14, the reminder of the ending hurts while rewatching TT__TT

    Love it, so many of our beloved moms and dads, Halmoni and haraboji 😘 This reminds me of my Korean teacher saying that the whole country is born with a microphone in their hands (excepting herself, who was not a great singer) 😁

There’s really no balance to my drama life. It’s either I’m having a drama draught or I’m drowning in dramas. Also, December is not the best time to take even a short break from DB cos now I’m just overwhelmed by the sheer amount of content i have to go through. So i’ve decided to focus on my dramas, finishing or catching up for now, and then making a list of 2023 watches for the bean-count. It may well be January by the time i get through the Year-End Festivities 😂

🍉 I’m so excited to watch the last two episodes of Twinkling Watermelon 🍉

Also, me to Beanies now ⬇️

Sweet Chae of mine. I don’t know if i like him better in angst or comedy..maybe i’ll just rewatch Love All Play which is a mix of both.

I think i can claim a bean for all his scenes that i watched in Castaway Diva. It’s so cute that they gave the adult brothers matching pyjamas 🤭

Guys, i just sent my phone for a repair and i spent the whole 30 mins in anxiety thinking of what they could do. I got my phone back and i’m still a lil freaked out at the thought of a real life #Unlocked

    I guess I’m very very illiterate in YT search. I have seen many videos from this episode and I have searched a lot for it too, but this particular segment I never saw before. It never showed up on my search results. This happens with a lot of other videos too. Why is that? Are YT results location based? Or anything else I don’t know about at all? Should I search for hashtags instead of keywords? I practically only use YT for 2PM videos 😂 but I keep seeing videos that I haven’t seen before. Send help please!

      I think location plays a role, but more importantly is the kind of channels you interact with. For example, netflix Phil has great k-content so i keep seeing their videos compared to my local one. Kbs spain also seems to be my jam (with eng subs thankfully) 😂

      Also, try filtering out vids you’ve played before cos search results tend to be repetitive when you use the same keywords.

        This is what I discovered right now by searching the video you posted! I have to search the country too! This was enlightening! And wayyy harder than I expected!

        Your second tip was a revelation! I always see that filter but never thought about its significance!

    I really liked them in Beat Coin.
    Let’s hope they do a variety show for their next comeback.
    I kinda wish they appeared in the Game catchers.

Woah woah..did PMR beanies know that Do Guk and evil MIL were a thing in the drama Love ft M.D? And both dads were in that drama too..even the cast connection is makjang-ish 🫢

    We know🤭.
    Lee Min-young as Jeon No-min’s wife, I didn’t see that coming.
    Love ft. Marriage and Divorce is also PMR’s PD, so i guess it was not a hard task to get them to join the PMR cast-list.

      It still odd to see them as MIL and SIL after watching them as a couple. The actor playing MIL isn’t that old, so they could have brought in a different actor, but I dont know if the replacement could match her evilness

Well, this applies to dramas too.. I waited months for Doona, but it was just boring guys! I skipped 2 eps to watch the end and am so glad I didn’t make myself sit through the complete eps. PMR, a drama that I dismissed before it even aired, turned out to be my current favourite watch! Swunghoon in all his swoony glory!

    You are so right we must all learn to do a hard stop to what doesn’t gel with us. PMR has been a revelation of sorts to all. So glad we are enjoying it together.

I was unaffected, beanies. When Perfect Marriage Revenge landed in DB world, it sure look like it had the making of a Terrible, Makjang Drama – revenge, contract marriage, Sung Hoon. I mean, bless his handsome face but Sung Hoon doesn’t instill the greatest confidence in a “good” drama does he? I did enjoy My Secret Romance & Level Up, but they weren’t the best really.

When the drama aired and beanies started raving, i was surprised. Words like “So Bad but So Good” started littering the Wall, but i skipped right over it, unaffected. “I knew he loved her from the start”… hmm ok maybe there’s something here, i do like romance.. but whatever..i will not be sucked into this makjang!

I will not be sucked but i also accidentally on purpose watched this clip, which made me look up the drama immediately. And now, I am A Fan. I love the leads, the witty lines, the chaotic support character, the evil leads.. I love it so that i won’t even call it a bad romance anymore. Cause it’s not, even though it looks like it came from early 2000.

I have faith in you Show, so please keep shining!

    I love the fact you are trying to drag in other stragglers by casually dropping this clip.

    I still don’t think it’s a good drama (if this is a good drama then I have been watching masterpieces for two years). But I know tomorrow I will be there, watching the next episode as soon as I can 😆

    (If I don’t like the next two episodes I would be very tempted to drop it, but I’m watching this with two friends and we said we would keep together until the end 😅).

      I love that you are all going to be noble idiot hanging in there regardless, hoping the others are invested. Hopefully there is something else that is an enjoyable watch keeping you happy too.

        Of course, I am watching good dramas I’m really enjoying: My Dearest, Twinkling Watermelon, Kidnapping Day, and I have just started New Life Begins 🙂

      A good drama, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder 🤭

      Anyway we’re only on ep 4, i may well have to take back my words. Hopefully not. But i really like that the ML is nice, the FL is finally growing a back bone and they have some really lol-wth dialogues happening. The evil is pretty standard stock, we can skip them and the OST…that is undeniably awful (the song in the 1st/2nd ep, if it is an ost).

        I’m not fond of with the main leads, but the show has been quite entertaining for now. It will be a shame if it becames boring or if it takes itself too seriously.

    Another new convert here! Just finished all 4 episodes. What good fun and it is actually witty (a word you’d never associate with makjang). Is it a makjang? I don’t care if the fun continues.

    How I adore Lee Mee-sok!
