Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

Completed: Sweet Home⭐️

The first drama I finished in 2021 is Sweet Home! My dad actually saw the trailer for this and since he wanted to watch something with me, we decided to watch it together. I am a huuuuge scaredy-cat!! I don’t like scary movies and, for the most part, I avoid dramas that have anything creepy or scary in them because I am not about that life. Still, since I wanted to watch something with my dad, I gave it a try. I’ll admit, at first I was a little scared, but after a while, it got easy to watch, especially since the plot and story got interesting. Overall, I really enjoyed this drama! They really became like a family that it was sad to see things keep happening to them because I just wanted them to be safe. With that ending hinting at a second season, I am totally down for it since I am curious as to where the story is going. My dad liked the drama too, and wanted us to watch the next season already…I think my dad has been watching too much Netflix and has gotten used to binge watching completed shows, lol.😂

    My sister and I watched it twice. I really hope that it gets renewed. I’m glad that you and your dad enjoyed this show 🙂

      That’s nice! I keep trying to get my sister to watch something with me, but she just won’t. I think she is just against anything I like, lol.

    I just wanted to point out, more to myself, that this is the first time that I have consistently posted in the Fan wall. Thirty one days to be exact!! I can’t believe it because usually I give up in posting my thoughts, but this was a personal challenge. I actually started the #2020Roundup while I was in isolation due to covid. I don’t know how, but I got it and stayed in my room for the 10 days of isolation as to not get my parents and siblings sick. It was incredibly lonely, I knew I was lonely, but I didn’t know I was that lonely. I love dramas because they are fun, entertaining, and distracting. But, do you ever get disillusioned by your life that even dramas you love seem to be outlandish. I don’t think I am there yet because I caught it early and started doing other things to entertain myself. For selfish reasons, I want covid to be over, so I can do more things outside my home and so I can really enjoy my dramas to the max. Realistically, I want covid to be over because I was very blessed to be a mild case. Worldwide suffering hurts. It would be nice if we could all heal together!

Favorite Movie
I watched a couple of Kmovies this year, not necessarily from 2020, but ones that caught my interest. With its Oscar win, Parasite is definitely the most memorable. I am a bad kdrama reviewer, and the worst movie critic, bit its accolades speak for itself. My brother and sister watched this with me and enjoyed it too which makes it even more memorable.
Other movies I watched:
-Kim Jiyoung-Born 1982
-I Can Speak
-#Alive
-My Bossy Girlfriend
-Swing Kids

8
2

    I loved Parasite, although I think it’s very literary and there are aspects of it that I don’t completely grasp. I also like Swing Kids!

    I think the only movies I’ve watched this year are movies involving Yoo Yeon-seok.

    1
    1

      I agree! I talked a lot with my brother and sister after Parasite, and even read articles on interviews and such to understand, but I forgot that all now😅.
      I liked Swing Kids too, but clearly I had no idea what the movie was about since I was so shooketh at the end!

Variety Shows
I love a good laugh, so this year a lot of my focus was on variety shows. They are like a daily routine at this point. For the most part, I watch only one episode a day, with Fridays being up in for variety shows that are seasonal.
*Saturday: I Live Alone
*Sunday: Running Man
*Monday: 1 Night 2 Days
*Tuesday: Master in the House
*Wednesday: Ask Us Anything
*Thursday: The Home Detox
*Friday: Whichever show sounds interesting, such as: Traveler:Argentina, The Great Escape 3, Twogether, New Journey to the West 8

Favorite Taiwanese Drama
I only saw two this year, but I definitely have to give a shout out to Someday, Or One Day. Beanies made me watch this because of their love of it in the fan wall. I am a fan of time travel and time slips, and though I am horrible in giving reviews, I can say that I loved this drama and it was just what I wanted. I also saw Lost Romance, which was also fun and entertaining.

    It’s the only Taiwanese drama I’ve watched and it goes directly to list of best tv shows ever!

Favorite JDrama
I watched like four jdramas this year and out of those four, I think that Love Lasts Forever was the most enjoyable one. It has the tsundere whom you learn to like and the candy that works hard in her job and to get the love of the tsundere. The main reason I liked it was because *spoiler* of our tsundere’s love confession. In dramas like this, the guy or girl just fall in love, but we never get to know why, so I like that this drama showed us*end of spoiler*. The drama also had this catchy song at the end of the episodes that always hyped things up, which I guess made me want to watch more of it, lol.

    Official HIGE DANdism’s I Love… is my happy pill song. The drama introduced me to it and Takeru Satoh introduced me to the drama. That boy can do no wrong😍

Favorite Cdrama
I haven’t watch many Cdramas compared to Kdramas, but I sometimes like to watch them in between my live dramas or when I watch thriller dramas, since I almost always pick the cute/sweet Cdramas. I am currently watching Forever Love, which I am currently enjoying, but since I haven’t finished it this year my award goes to: The Romance of Tiger and Rose. I usually watch the high school/ college dramas just because they are sometimes the most loved and recommended, but I saw this one pop up in the Beanie wall so I decided to give it a shot. I ended up really liking it since I hadn’t seen many dramas of this genre. The heroine was a hoot and I just like it when the guy falls first. I have yet to see a long Cdrama, so maybe that’s my next adventure.

Drama I am Currently Loving

Run On! It’s only on episode 3, so knock on wood, but I am really enjoying it. They are all weird, but in an way that makes them appealing and makes you want to tune in. I haven’t live watched anything since Forest of Secrets 2, so the fact that I put it on as soon as I came home today to watch while eating dinner, it says a lot

Drama I Wish I Watched Live
I am pretty happy with all the live dramas I watched this year, but there is one I regret not watching live: My Unfamiliar Family. And I still haven’t had the chance to watch it! 😅😭I hear so many praises for it that I know I should watch it, but I just haven’t gotten to it. Maybe because it’s not easily accessible or maybe because I’m just lazy, I don’t know why, but I guess I have to get in the mood for it. Hopefully it comes soon!

    Hope you enjoy My Unfamiliar Family when you do get to it! I think waiting until the mood strikes is a good approach to increasing your overall enjoyment of a show!😊

    I hear you. While I’m ultimately glad that I avoided the disaster ending of DoDo, there’s a part of me that wishes I’d live watched it and had been able to rave with fellow Beanies (at least up through episode 13, I think?). It seemed to have brought a lot of joy to people up until that point. I now benefit from their pioneering in that I will never watch that drama, but I regret just a tad that I didn’t get to experience the happy parts with everyone.

    1
    1

      Yes! I wished I watched DoDo too, and I’ll add Brahms to that as well. I like music and can very poorly play the violin, so I think those two dramas would be up my alley, but I missed the timing watching live and now I don’t want to go back to them because there are some good ones I missed! Ahh, the never ending drama list!!

New Drama Watching Experience:
My dad watched his first drama with me this year. He was never a big TV watcher, but I taught him how to work the remote and now he watches more TV than any one of us in our house. He has also been wanting to spend time with me, which means we watch a lot of TV and movies together. I told him that I wasn’t interested in watching any long season shows, which is why I switched to dramas, so he said he would give a drama a try. Since he can’t really read well, and only knows Spanish, I decided to watch a drama with him that I had already seen so I could explain it to him. We watched Signal and he really enjoyed it. Watching a drama with my dad was nice because I know he watched it to spend time with me and also he was so into the drama. He kept wanting to see it, but it would take a while because I was always so busy. Now, he picked a drama on his own that we are now watching together. Is this the start of a new drama fan?!😄

Day20:Cameo that blew your mind

Like I said before, I forget everything. I get all hyped up at the moment and then forget everything later. So, I guess that the most memorable cameo from this year has to be Kim Soo-hyun in Crash Landing On You when he reprised his movie role of the North Korean spy in South Korea. To be honest, I haven’t seen the movie😅 and that’s why I remember his cameo because I put the movie on my to watch list. All I need is time now!!

Day19:Most Memorable Scene

Moon Gang-tae’s breakdown in It’s Okay To Not Be Okay really stands out in my mind. That cry that comes from your heart, I know it. Family moments always get to me. I love my family, but we are so toxic to each other. Thus, why I love my other most memorable scene which is the the finale of IOTNBO! Those camping scenes made me tear up. I wish for the day my family can cry out one last time and we actually listen to each other, so we can finally learn to love each other without having to cause each other pain.

Day18:One you want to rant about

I don’t think there is a drama I saw this year that I want to rant about. Can I rant about today?! Apparently I only remember things as they are occurring!

Looked back at my drama list and I want to rant about how the female lead in Find Me In Your Memory never once wore a comfy, casual outfit!! I get it, she’s an actress, but shouldn’t she own a least one pair of sweatpants! Also, she called him anchornim until the end. Why? I may never get it. Rant over. (I might be a little loopy and sensitive today guys😂)

Day17: One that made you emotional

I am pretty selfish person, so I mostly cry for selfish reasons. If I get physically hurt, I cry. If someone hurts me emotionally, I cry. If I see something sad that can relate to me, I cry. If someone is sad, I empathize and feel hurt, but don’t cry. Lately, that has been changing!! I’ve realized that in this past year I have developed a new type of cry: I see someone crying and immediately my eyes well up with tears. It is so weird to me because I have never been this way. So, now, I cry at everything!
I think the drama I cried the most this year was It’s Okay To Not Be Okay. Family moments always get to me!😭
The drama I have cried the most at, which I rewatched this year, was Just Between Lovers. I have no idea why, but I bawled!!

Day16: Best quote/oneliner

This is tough because I forget everything!
But I do remember that It’s Okay To Not Be Okay had a lot of quotes that I could relate too: “Your body is honest. When you’re in physical pain, you cry. But the heart is a liar. It stays quiet even when it’s hurting.”
Sometimes I don’t realize how much I am carrying in my heart until the first tear starts rolling and then I don’t stop for a while. My goal is to face these things head on so I don’t have to get so worn out like this.

Day15:Secondary characters you will never forget

I forget things easily, especially names of secondary characters because sometimes it gets hard to even remember the main characters names. Looking back at the dramas I watched, the secondary characters I will always remember are Seo Dan and Goo Seung-joon from Crash Landing On You! They were both great characters on their own and so great together. I wanted more of their story and I think I was more emotional on their parting than the main couple. Also, I liked how classy Seo Dan looked that I wanted to buy pins for my hair like she had,lol😂.

Day14:The drama that could have been but wasn’t…(if only they listened to Beanies!)

I am not a writer. I like to believe that I have an imagination and that I am creative. But if I were to write something, I don’t think I would be able to finish it up to my satisfaction. It would probably be cheesy, lol. Endings are a just hard! Thus, why I try not to be too mad at patched up endings. But I am not writer, that is not my profession. Which is why, although I don’t get too mad at bad endings, I’m also confused. Like this is their job. While I try to not roast writers too much, I am always a little disappointed when they have such a good idea, plot, and characters in their hand. “This could have been so much better if this…or this… or even that happened.” All of this to say, although I did like The King: Eternal Monarch, I also think there was room in there for something more!!

Day13: Most Fashionable Character

I have no fashion sense at all! I just like things that are comfortable, basically I’ve been living in my pjs the whole year. I only “dress up” for work, which is totally casual and clothes I wouldn’t mind getting dirty because they probably are going to get dirty some way or another. Thus, why every drama lady is a fashion inspiration, since even the poorest of Candies has like three coats. There was one shirt I loved though! And, of course, Goo Se-ra wore it! It looks pretty and it reminds of this one shirt I had in blue that looked just like it and it was soft and my favorite, but I had to get rid of😭.

I don’t have time to screenshot it, but you can kind of see it in the photo below from DB recaps!

        Here in the rainy side of Spain, you need a decent – and water tight!- coat at least for 4 months a year. I usually own one of those at a time, and it feels like a uniform. Whatever you wear you look the same because it’s all hidden under the massive coat… Of course, it has advantages too, like being able to run errands on your pyjamas 🤣

          How fun to be in your pjs!!😆 Lately, it feels like we go through all 4 seasons in a day, like it starts of cold and then it gets really hot and then cools down again, that I couldn’t dare wear my ugly pjs lol😂
