    Not my favorite on the album, but it such a good album.
    Love Key’s feathers. Saw a couple people on twitter that were like its my dream for Key to be mean to me, lol.

      The album is great! So happy they gave us 9 tracks rather than a smaller mini album. My personal faves are Code and Heart Attack.

      Hahahaha Key’s sass is out of control this comeback. I love it.

I think this has become my favorite (G)I-DLE title track. It’s so hauntingly beautiful!

    Your yearly K-pop top 20 is turning into a personal Dramabeans tradition!😊 For me it is the ultimate test to decide whether I am up to date with K-pop or not. I am getting better with the years!🥳 I am more into boy groups, but I am pleasantly surprised to report that I know most songs from your list. Wannabe and Alien are on my Ipod!😉

      Hahaha I think I am the resident girl group stan on Dramabeans! When I see other Beanies’ lists with boy groups it is also a test to see if I am keeping up. Glad to hear you are up to date on your girl groups!

I\’ve done my top 20 Kpop songs list each year for the last two years. I want to keep up tradition but also feel super unmotivated. Would any Beanies be interested? Would you prefer a post per song with a link to the MV or just one post with all 20 songs listed?

    I’d love a post with the list of the songs. I would check them for sure!

    Infinitize got me and kaleidoscopic into making a top 20 list last year. We’ll be doing it again this year on new year’s eve. They’ve posted it all at once. I posted mine in increments of 10 with my #10 and #1 video attached. I would suggest posting in some kind of increments instead of 20 posts. That way it doesn’t flood out other people’s posts. I’m always interested in seeing people’s lists though.

Looking for drama recommendations now that 18 Again is over and TOTNT is on hiatus this week. What should I watch if I am looking for something heartwarming with a great cast? Want as little angst as possible…

        Because This is Our First
        School 2017
        Age of Youth

          I haven’t seen You Drive Me Crazy or Her Private Life. I’ll check them out! Would also love k-variety recommendations! I enjoying healing variety like Yoon’s Kitchen or Hyori’s Homestay.

            Her private life has the best male lead ever. Not the best story but you’ll love it, because it’s awwwww

            Here are the K-variety shows that I think are quite ‘healing’
            Summer Vacation
            House of Wheels
            1N2D
            Problematic Child in the House

    I miss 18 Again 😢
    But I watch variety shows instead, New Journey to the West since I like the whole cast and Na PD, and 1 Night 2 Days because of Kim Seon Ho. However, the whole cast is really funny. Both are not really heartwarming, but with a great cast and without angst.

      I’ve been wanting to check out 1 Night 2 Days. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Another beanie that watched 18 Again, mentioned that she’s watching now Matrimonial Chaos. Just in case you haven’t watched this drama, is really good and I found it heartwarming even if it is about divorce. You’ll love the four leads.

18 Again was wrapped up so nicely! Feeling warm and fuzzy and happy everyone is happy. Ugh I\’m going to miss this show!

The last 10 minutes of Ep 8 of 18 Again have wrecked me. I am a puddle of tears.

      I think we all cried so much during episode 8. The first few little bit (the flashback precipitated by what Il-kwon told Da-jung about) was hard enough, but the entire second half literally had tears falling down my cheeks. I love this show so much.

Last year I never knew what to watch because nothing caught my interest or was so bad I dropped it. This year I never know what to watch because everything is so good that I can\’t choose!

    I found last year was okay, especially the tail end of the year. There were stretches of time where significant stretches of time, though, where I didn’t live-watch anything. This year, though, I find that I’m always live-watching at least one show, and usually more than one show.

This is nowhere in the realm of Kpop I usually listen to but like I love this??? The “dook dook dook” sound and dance move is TOO catchy. And I love all the chef imagery.

I did not like Doctor Foster, so I\’m hesitant to watch WOM. Any beanies in the same boat who are watching and liking World of Married?

      Thanks for letting me know! It’s getting high praise and ratings so it has me intrigued, but I’m not a fan of the source material…

        ofcourse…but you should watch a couple of episodes for yourself .. who knows you may like it

        my guess for high rating would be because this isn’t usual sop story as in other kdramas.. so for korean audience this might be altogether a new take

    I don’t know the original but TWOTM was great. If you should give it a chance depends on the reason why you disliked Foster.

    I think it follows the same storyline as Doctor foster from reading the recaps. I do think the 16 episode format, addition of new characters, cast, soundtrack made it an intense watch. I wasn’t a huge fan of the
    original story anyway so I didn’t want to watch the remake. I’ve seen that a lot of people have enjoyed the show.

    I’ve never watched Doctor Foster, so I cannot comment on that particular show. However, World of the Married was fantastic. It’s quite the intense viewing experience.

Bow down to Queen Chungha! I can’t believe this is only a pre-release. It is comeback quality. SHOOK.
