So I’m watching Sweet Home for the second time, and it seems like the subs have changed from the first time in certain parts. And in certain cases, I know the subs are wrong. #whynetflix#netflixsubs

Hi, Beanies. I thought I would share this lovely video from a Hungarian YouTuber. I have been incorporating ribbons into some of my simple braids, and this video was another big inspiration. The long, decorative bow at the end of the braid reminds me of the traditional Korean hairstyle for maidens (side note: I love that hairstyle and the slight variations that you find in modern versions).

I might avoid the fan walls for a few days. We should vote according to the dictates of our own consciences–not according to the wishes of others. I am also avoiding the social media of celebrities. I am tired of propaganda, blanket labeling of groups of people, and name calling. I might just stick to recap threads, even if I don\’t actually comment on them. Take care, Beanies!

While I didn’t really care for episode five of Tale of the Nine Tailed, I did enjoy episode six. We got some interesting revelations/developments. And Looney as a fellow guardian spirit–can this be an extended cameo? I like that he is our folk village’s resident magistrate (he needs a job to pay those bills!). With his magical fan, I was reminded of Arang and the Magistrate, one of my favorite shows. And it was cute to see him eating macaroons.

Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol (how should I abbreviate this in the future? DOLSOL?)/ Episode One Thoughts:

    When I remembered that the writer also wrote Shopping King Louis, I realized that there were similarities between the two shows. One example is the rich, naive, but kind-hearted lead who finds himself/herself in strange circumstances. There is also paralleling in certain scenes. Do you remember when Louis first sees the face of Bok-Shil on his television screen? He is so taken with her beauty. Lee Jae-wook’s character is similarly stricken when his sees Goo Ara’s Ra-ra. Also, I am suspicious of Secretary Moon (kind of like the shady ahjussi in Shopping King Louis), lol. Then there is the slightly older second male lead in both shows.

    I do not think that the Instagram handle whose images enticed Ra-ra to go to that beautiful place belonged to Secretary Moon. I have a feeling it was the Doctor, Cha Eun-seok. He heard Ra-ra’s recital, which included that Mozart arrangement of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. He also left his practice in the city and went to that beautiful place.

    This could be a cute and heart-warming show. Hopefully, the “villains” will also be as ineffectual as those in Shopping King Louis. πŸ™‚

    does it stand the test of time?
    I watched this a while back, and liked it, but even then, I thought it was a little weird.

      For some reason, the opening episode was a bit much, but a lot of dramas have so-so set up episodes. Some aspects of the show are dated, and it is a melodrama, but I’m still enjoying the re-watch. I remember not being too fond of the ending, so I’m wondering how I’ll feel this time.

Whenver Hee-sung studies his wife\’s facial expressions to gauge her mood and guess what she is thinking, I have to admire the subtlety of Lee Joon-gi\’s acting. #flowerofevil

Day 30: A Least Favorite Movie

So something I liked but didn’t necessarily love….Again, this is tough.

I’ll put The Princess and the Matchmaker (2018) here. It was a pretty cute film, but something was missing. Plus, the really dark sub-plot involving one of the potential suitors and his penchant for torture could be seen as jarring for this type of story.

    Is that Lee Seunggi?

    Is that what least favorite means? Strange. Although I can’t think of any other meaning for it. That makes it incredibly difficult to choose!

      That’s how I interpret the word choice. If it was about a film I simply disliked, I think the category would be something like “A movie you disliked/hated/etc.” Instead, it said “Least Favorite.”

Day 29: A Favorite Remake
Hmmm….In the grand scheme of things, I haven’t watched a lot of movies and, of course, my mind goes blank at such moments. I can only think of the Judy Garland version of A Star is Born (1954). I saw the original 1937 film. Both are good. But the 1954 adaptation (for it is an adaptation more than a remake) had that extra something.

Day 26: A Movie that is Your Guilty Pleasure

Without a doubt, that would be Cyborg (1989). There is the bad ’80s dialogue and not-so-great line delivery, but there are many things that I also enjoy about it. And there are some good dramatic moments in it as well (believe it or not). I’ve posted a pic from this science-fiction-action/dystopian film on my fan wall in the past, so I knew I had to highlight it one more time for the July movie challenge. LOL
