    If you liked the Reply series you could watch Youth over Flowers. Seasons 2 and 4 have the cast of Reply 1994 and Reply 1988 respectively.
    Or 2 Days 1 Night is always great for local Korean travel. Might be more fit for learning words for travelling in Korea.

      I second the 2D1N recommendation. They feature local attractions and food so you can also take notes for your itinerary.

        haha 1N2D they are more action and reaction tho? pouring flour on each other and laughing. But, I do notice that they always show the road signs and names of local attractions

          They do feature local attractions by holding the games in these places and normally the PDs include a description of the place and there are drone footages and money shots of the attraction. And the food that they serve usually are the food that the place is famous for.

    I have no idea how many travel vocab words are in The Package but it’s about a group of South Koreans on vacation in France who have all signed up for the same vacation package.

    Oh, I didn’t notice the reality part. Well, watch The Package anyway even if it’s not a reality show. It’s great and underrated!

So the korean culture club started again on wednesday, we made kimbap at the library and it was really fun! 11 people joined. I actually managed to make a perfect kimbap roll, so proud. I was very nervous cause I thought I would mess up. But it is not that difficult at all. The group is also interested in making kimchi. I am on sick leave for now though, my knee needs to heal. and I didn´t mess up my hanbok, but it does need cleaning, I am not sure how to wash it though. Maybe dry cleaning? anyway, we are thinking of doing some facials, like, with natural ingredients, I want to do something I have seen in dramas but I dont know the recipes. Usually it is something green – perhaps avocado?

    Nice job, redfox, on the kimbap. I’d say you had a decent turnout, too! One green thing I’ve seen blended with honey for a facial is cucumber. There was an episode on Master in the House with Bae Jong-ok and she concocted all sorts of ingredients for healthy smoothies, facials, and meals without much cooking-just mixing and combining. Anyhoot, sounds like you’re having fun at the library. Take care of your knee, too 🦉

      I can’t remember if it was that episode but me and my sister tried out the honey and lemon face mask they made on MitH and it was really nice.

        There was another episode with Lee So Ra, I think and she also blended some smoothies and facials (they practically seem interchangeable sometimes ha ha).

          We tried those too 😂 they made a big fuss on the show about the last one being horrible (I think it was like cucumber, celery and lemon?) but it was actually pretty nice. Nicer than the one with beetroot 🤢

          1
          3

            That was fun to watch the reactions. It’s truly a matter of taste. For smoothies, I like blueberry, kiwi, maybe two small pieces of celery, and oj. Sometimes I add1/2 avocado. I like cucumber kimchi, but I don’t like it plain. Beetroot is ok, but not early on the morning.

      oh, interesting! I think I can find it by googling the name and title. Yeah, like, I know there are cucumber rings on the eyes and like, I see it so much in every drama but never really paid attention. I should do an event where we try like, 6 different facials from dramas.

    likes to bet on sports, cant keep the earnings. girls arent drawn to him because he is not a bad boy. officials push their paperwork on him. but accidentally joining a theatrical troup, he becomes alive.

      How do you accidentally join a theatrical troupe? Has he got a doppelgänger in the troupe who goes off drinking for days on end and they mistake the king who happens to pass by for their member and he gets roped in to perform. He loves it so much that he hires them to perform exclusively at the palace to entertain the guests at all the parties for the festivals?

      3
      1

        or he has to hide behind a mask for some reason, like a roll of thread accidentally got caught in his sleeve, and the shop owner accuses him of stealing but he cant lt her find out the king likes to embroider, so he grabs a mask, and they mistake him for a performer

      Once exposed there could there be an competition for the best embroidery that depicts historical events and the prize is the best work will be exhibited in the palace and go on tour of the country. This will show the value of the art as not just a pass time for the rich woman who has to demonstrate her feminine abilities while waiting for a husband.

    Seo In Guk of course is soaring. yet, it is a different kind of swindler from yeon do. but you know, trying to make a character “special”, extraordinary, over the top sometimes works, sometimes not. it can be a Jack Sparrow or it can be tiresome for the viewer. the writing, I mean. I have more respect for writers who can make an ordinary character shine. without the gimmicky-ness. it has to have substance, not glaze. we will see. Ingukkie seems to aim for a “pushing the line”, playing high stakes kind of guy, who only looks confident but is aware that being exposed is a matter of time. hopefully we see more than a decorative caricature, like a guy who is also swindling himself out of a real identity, but can just be himself with people he chooses as his kin.

    It’s okay. I think Suga has shown a ton of talent as a producer, but there is only so much you can do with the talent in front of you.

    Psy has and always was okay. He was never really good.

      he has enough hits.. seungi’s debut song is psy’s creation, gangnam is good, new face was also good.. some of jessi’s songs are his.. don’t think he is bad.. but this song in particular is just like rehash of low quality creative outcomes for them

          That’s fair.. but pinning talent issue on one person isn’t..

      also, if producer wants..he can do enough.. not 1 person fault over another.. it is a combined work and it is not good

if anyone interested, Estonian version of I See Your Voice performances. the judges are so annoying though. So fake and so awkward. & it is not as heartfelt w the tone deafs

    so, this is a playlist. it is just, whats with “social media influencers” being judges? They dont even have brains. There is this girl just flaunting her tits every possible moment. Like it is trendy now to be a poodle. and they are rising through the remnants of local celebrities who still havent embarrassed themselves on TV. I dont know why our TV channels dont manage the empathetic approach the original had. They barely open up the background of the tone-deafs at all. Just a caption under the song, and no talking.

Updates: so you all know…. Russia is still being a d***. Latest comment from Lavrov: we are attacking Ukraine to avoid war.
BTW My friend got back safe. He saved some musicians … and their cats.
Trying to take down trolls.
I think Zelenskiy is everyones´ Oppa now. Um… Im sorry to say this, but he is more popular than BTS…

everyone, if you can donate to Ukrainian first aid and firefighters, thats the most urgent need, medical supplies. and incubators
for the babies born in bomb shelters.
and if you can post something encouraging to Telegram channels, songs, poems, to give strength to the men fighting.
20000 foreigners have joined as volunteers.

and we in Estonia have received 60000 refugees in 2 days. there is 1million of us, so… we are all pretty busy.

I think russia realizes: they lost everything already. Ukraine conquered the entire world in 1 day. May kindness, love and compassion win over terror, oppression,lies and hate.
sorry, if this is inappropriate.

      they are most lacking protective gear but recently also basic equipment because more men are joining. Really biggest concern is helmets and fireproof thing because Russians keep setting stuff on fire. For refugees, their urgent need is baby food, harder is school books bc they left everything behind. Children have nothing to study from. any ideas? where to get Ukrainian school and toddlers books? also

Wonderful people on Dramabeans, my friends, who have been huge support to me at hard times! You are kind, just and honest people
so I know you will be of help.
Terrorist regime, Putinś Russia has invaded Ukraine, which is a souvereign, independent, peace-loving country. Children as young as 4yo have been killed by now.
Russians don´t want war, Ukrainians don´t want war, but war is going on also on the internet, false information
is being spread FAST. Please, help, whenever you see provocations, when ever you see false information – Putin says it was british troups.Putin says America ignited war.Putin says
ukrainians are nazis or outlaws. that is a piece of bull. Putin says no Russian soldiers were killed, he wanted to create a legend
that ukrainians greeted russian troups as liberators. THEY DID THE SAME HERE IN ESTONIA IN 1944!!!! All they know is recycling history.
this is Putins´ war, and he is a criminal, a thief, and he is hiding like a coward.
I ask 3 things.
1. please help stop the spread of false information! Share trustworthy channels. My mom says Indian TV is doing a great job,
BBCis on location and Finnish Yle1 is very fast and has a lot of reporters. Also, help detect Russian trolls.
2. Since my FB account is blocked due to trolls, please help share videos of attacks on living districts in Kyiv and protests in RUSSIA on any social media channels you got.
3. Please, if you can, go to your local Russian embassy and leave a sign of protest there, take part in a protest, or wear Ukrainian colors.
This war is a crime against humanity, but the worst is Russia is trying to suyffocate information right now.
Leave comments on Viki shows, anywhere, that they don´t think of. Drama fans, we have to stop the troll, we have to stop lies.

    first lie: Putin says ukrainians are nazis.
    8 million ukrainians died in the fight against Hitler
    second lie: only military objects are being attacked.
    nope, direct missile hits at apartment blocks, running over civilians directly with tanks
    third lie: Russian troups are helping ukrainians because they hate their country.
    nope. they are trying to occupy Ukraine to control former eastern block, and the resources.
    fourth and most dangerous lie, and I hope it is a lie: there is no leak in Chernobyl / or the leak was created by British spies.
    I dont knwo if there is one or not but Russian troups are controlling the nuclear station and they are dumbf***s so they can make fatal mistakes since they are mo*ons. I am not surprised if they pushed the wrong button, which means, friends in Europe, please get Jodine pills from the pharmacy just in case. Radiation levels are 20 times the average
    fifth lie: Ukraine is hiding terrorists.
    Reality: the only terrorist hiding and sh*tting his pants is Putin!
    oh, thats the fourth thing I want to ask: petition for Putin to come out and fight like a man.
    Estonia is sending humanitarian aid to Ukraine, there are lots of refugees coming, if anyone can spare a room, blankets, coats, baby stuff, diapers, soap, toothbrushes, hiking equipment like outdoor stove, warm boots, etc, or if anyone knows a bus driver that can help transport refugees, please contact your local Red Cross.

    @redfox, my dear Beanie friend of a very long time ❤️ First, let me give you long overdue thanks for teaching me many years ago to start paying attention to Estonia, and Latvia and Lithuania, because of your comments then about the exposure to the Russian threat. Ever since then, every time Putin does something I think, but what about the Baltics? And I worry and think about how worried you must be. Somehow I never noticed that there is a small piece of land on the Polish border named Kaliningrad that belongs to Russia, until this week when I looked at a map again. Now I am freaked out about the ability for Russia to assemble troops there for future attacks.

    I hope it will help to know that CNN is doing an outstanding job covering this war to the US (and I assume internationally) with correspondents in several Ukrainian cities and also on the Russian border and of course in Moscow. They are also confirming battle claims via geolocation. The Putin lies are well known and commonly discussed here. I wish my country would do more to help and hope we are doing a great deal behind the scenes to support Ukraine that is not publicly known.

    I hope DB doesn’t find this conversation inappropriate to the fan wall, please just know that I am thinking of you and will follow your suggestions as best I can 👍🏼

      thank you, and it is good to know you have valid information – internet is SO full of trolls right now it´s crazy, how many are on their payroll? 10000?

      But there are more people on the good side and even though it is not a war directly with the world almost the all world is fighting – with information, with hacking… I dont think it is inappropriate, It´s just that I remembered how much power Kpop fans have, was it Trump or the attack on White House, that they took over twitter? so I think, if we can get them behind this, we´ll at least win the information war. also, doesn´t Viki allow comments run or screen or not any more? so I thought families could leave messages to each other. in Europe, some platforms have been hijacked by trolls so maybe kdrama forums, kdrama sites are an alternative. they would never think of that.

      thank you, again.
      My beloved, my best friend and the love of my life, is on his way to Lviv. He is going to play music on the battlefield. Yeah, a bit grandiouse. but he wants to do his best even if he dies.

      me im making posters, and helping to find used computers for the refugees with my cousin. so they can make video calls and let their friends know they are safe.

        Oh my heavens, I wish him safety and success.
        That is brilliant to think of all the K-pop fans. ARMY totally mobilized in the US and caused a Trump rally to have hardly any attendees because ARMY had reserved the tickets. Of course, I adore trolls when we’re on the same side 😉 and the BTS fandom is at the front of the line when it comes to being ANTI BULLYING.
        I have a friend who is a bit active in that world, I will ask her if she’s heard anything.

    They did the same to us in 1968 and stayed until the early 90’s! I hope he doesn’t wait for east strong winds for using chemical weapons. Medvedev his own puppet is nothing better. I hope for russian revolution! It’s time to change all those KGB agents…

    Btw I was so disgusted by Poutin’s silent minute for war heroes standing in the rain and after when he was thinking that the camera is no longer on roll shaking hands with others and smirking with shaking his head how great show he has put on.

    I hope Kijv won’t be erased from the map the next days, it doesn’t look good. Stay strong all of Ukrainiens!
