Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

Some may know that the OTP in this webseries is the side couple in Shooting Stars, but did you also know that the 2ML also stars as the dead friend too? I liked this BGM, the story not so much.

Shooting Stars: I\’m sure the toilet scene can be considered as sexual harassment? He\’s literally stripping himself in front of her! And she\’s having nightmares over that six years later, yikes?

    I feel like this a problem with this drama. It has a nice overall vibe and setting but certain parts of it are so ignorant that they pull you out of the viewing experience which is a bummer.

Shooting Stars: Wow it hasn\’t even been 2 minutes and we\’ve got the offensive \”Africa is poor\” portrayal paired together with the \”exotic\” Lion King soundtrack. Seriously, we\’re in 2022, Korea?

    Ugh, what a disappointment. I can’t truly say I’m shocked because egregious sh*t like this is rampant in kdramas, but you’d think they’d learn something from the years of international fan backlash. I’ll definitely keep this in mind when checking out the first episode, but suffice to say, not a great impression.

    My sister sent me a message to to skip the drama because she knows I hate things like that.

Green Mothers’ Club: I really like the somber emotions that this song evokes with its haunting vocals and laid-back accompaniment. If only the actual story of the show was also equally serious?

Green Mothers’ Club: Don’t let the title of this OST fool you, no one in this show is actually happy. Also, the story is really makjang, though the cliffhanger of Episode 5 really had me shook.

My Liberation Notes: The OST that is representative of Mr Gu slowly coming out of his shell! His backstory’s still a question mark at this stage and honestly I fear it might be bad but oh well.

My Liberation Notes: I really love the piano parts that are accompanied by the humming! I don’t want to jinx the show, but this is the first show in 2022 that I feel confident will stay strong?

The Killer’s Shopping List:
– 8 episodes murder whodunit -> Chip In vibes
– neighbourhood mart setting -> Pegasus Market vibes
Lee Kwang Soo as lead

I think I’m hyped up

Kang Tae Oh‘s finally a lead! I like that the drama’s dealing with a neurodivergent character but K-dramas haven’t exactly got the best record when it comes to mental disorders. Please be good!

I ranked up to The Goblin’s underpants! Prayers:
Green Mothers\’ Club is more like Birthcare Center and less like 39
My Liberation Notes will be a show I can like

    I tried Green Mother’s Club, but was done when the violin broke. Love all actresses, but I just can’t watch.

2521: Wonstein‘s voice truly evokes lots of emotions and the chorus’s melody is really awesome!

    This song comes at the exact time when the show wants to convey “longing” esp for Beak Yi Jin.

    Couldn’t agree more about Moonshine. It was boring, outdated, at times plain absurd, and an absolute waste of Yoo Seung-ho’s talent.

Someone just asked me why I\’m watching a show if I gave it a negative review. I highly doubt they were genuinely curious but for those who might be: you need to have watched a show to give any review?

    I think the question is more curiosity about why you watch dramas when you give most of the ones you watch negative reviews, and why you keep watching so many that you don’t enjoy. Is it purely because you like reviewing things? I’m genuinely curious, honestly!

    You review shows that you haven’t watched?
    Based on what?

    And I was glad to see the question, I’ve wondered for some time (genuinely) why someone would continue watching shows that they grade below passing.

    1
    1

      No, of course not, if you’ve seen any of my comments, it should be clear I’ve watched the shows I comment on.

      The point was that if I’ve commented on any show, it implies that I’ve watched it, because why would I bother commenting on something I haven’t watched.

      As for your second paragraph, I responded in the WWW thread already. Honestly, based on the following response, it kind of makes me pissed that I even bothered to respond and talk out my reasons for watching a show that I supposedly hate.

      But to elaborate even more on that point, a show is passing for me (aka I’m going to watch it) as long as there’s something I like in it, regardless if it’s the actor, the music, the side arc, whatever. If I can’t find that after 4 or even 6 episodes the show’s a goner. I do think I’m quite shallow in that regard since I don’t drop very often, but I’ll still give the show two 1/5 after it ends if I think there was nothing non-shallow about the show itself that I liked or appreciated.

You would think someone in JTBC might\’ve thought that it isn\’t the best idea but both shows feature adulterers within the second leads as well as a one night stand between the first leads. Why?

    exactly.. i have very very same thought…

    Yup! Also both ONS and story progressing from becoing lovers without it is formulaic but I definitely prefer the latter even knowing what will happen in ep 8 or 12. The former just devoids shows of the budding romance feelings kdramas incite.

      Also story wise it seems like an easy route taken by the writer to develop the romance.

    It’s an interesting choice. I’m not opposed if done well but the jury is still out on that. Both dramas are doing better than anything jtbc has put out in quite some time, so maybe the audience likes it.
