      This show must know that YYS is in my top five favourite K celebs, so it’s just taunting me and trying to make it so that I re-watch this episode over and over again instead of doing work.

    Gyeo-ul is one lucky woman.

      True, although I love Gyeo-ul in this show too. I figure they’re both lucky to have each other.

This girl, she so sassy. 😂 I love how this show never goes the cliched route. Cute, touching moment? The very next scene is gonna ruin it with something hilarious.

Dam torturing Woo-yeo by not letting him smoke is so fun. This role suits Hyeri. She can basically just be herself.

Bae In-hyuk reminds me of Yoon Doo-joon, appearance wise. Also, does Seon-woo\’s surname mean \”dog\”? Or is \”dog\” spelled differently?

    I thought I’m the only who thought he could pass as Yoon Doo-joon’s brother, though Bae In-hyuk’s face is a bit softer.

    Ah, no, it’s two different words. His surname is ๊ณ„ which could be spelled in Latin as Gye (though some different rules of romanization sometimes written that down as “Gae” or “Kye” or “Kae”). While the word for dog is ๊ฐœ which was written as Gae

    I actually thought he looked similar to JKY especially on that one scene they shared with Hyeri on episode 3. But now that you mentioned it, BIH does look more similar to YDJ.

    So that is who he looks like. I kept thinking that he looks familiar but I wasn’t able to make the connection with YDJ.

    I can see the resemblance, but whenever I see him, I think of Seo Kangjoon (miss him!). Anyways, we can all agree that he’s a very cute guy 😊

Okay, starting to say why fellow Beanies recommend I watch My Roommate is a Gumiho despite my misgivings. It\’s fun! Also, this role suit Jang Ki-yong. I\’m not far into it, but he\’s doing a really good job here.

    I saw clips of him rapping on IG and I started swooning. He is my new oppa now.

They are so funny! I died when Baek reprised his old trick during the absolute pitch game.

Episode 2 of Racket Boys continues to be fun. It\’s like watching a Korean, live-action, badminton version of Haikyuu.

Okay, I am now a fan of Tang Joon-sang. Iโ€™ve seen him in three roles โ€” Crash Landing on You, Move to Heaven, and now Racket Boys โ€” and heโ€™s done a smashing good job in each role, despite how different the characters are. Side note: he was born in 2003! I was in the halfway through elementary school in 2003! Also, side note to the side note, but itโ€™s cool that heโ€™s half Malaysian.

    I always thought he looked a bit unconventional by Korean standards. Him being half Malaysian kind of explains it.

I love Racket Boys and Mad for You. Excited for where both of these shows go. Still haven\’t started My Roommate is a Gumiho, though. The Hyeri factor is making me super reluctant.

    I think you should give Gumiho Roommate a shot. I personally enjoyed it a lot. Its funny and doesn’t take itself too seriously.

    Hyeri is actually lovely in gumiho. I pretty much think sheโ€™s continuing Deok Sun here, if her take in R1988 doesnโ€™t irritate you.

    I started all three – Rackets, Mad and Gumiho – and likely to continue all of them.

    LOL. Is this a commercial?

      I’m not sure. I think it’s just a collab NCT Dream did with a big youtube account for children, but I’m not entirely sure what PinkFong is tbh.

        Wiki says PinkFong is the same company that got “Baby Shark” famous.

        Also, to be clear, “Hot Sauce” is just the name of Dream’s new song. So it’s not an advertisement for a hot sauce brand!

          The song is very catchy, and honestly the animation is so cute that if it’s a commercial, I’m willing to take a look at the product ๐Ÿ˜€

            I didn’t like the song at first, but it grew on me. I love the cute animation in this collab, too!

Watched the first three episodes of Mad for Each Other with my mom. I like it. Letโ€™s see where it goes.

Rewatching Twogether. I love LSJ and LYHโ€™s bromance. Can we get LYH as a sabu in Jib Sabu?

    Obviously not necessarily rn with corona etc., but later maybe? They could go to Taiwan and hang out with Jasper on his home turf.

While I liked SF9’s performance more, I thought this was a really terrific performance, too, — the second best in this round, IMO. As an EXO-L, I am super happy they chose a song by EXO and did a good job with it.

    I liked all the performances this round (except maybe Ateez? I can’t remember theirs like an hour after watching it). I kinda wish there were no points, just performances, but I know they can’t make as much money that way. Oh well.

      Yeah, I think the points are arbitrary and it’s hard to figure out which team is the best or worst in any particular round. There are definitely some performances I like more than others, but I think the competition aspect of this makes it seem more objective than it is. I try to take it all with a grain of salt, although some fans are really upset with the rankings (especially when their faves don’t come out on top).

Honestly, this is just an amazing performance. As a rendition of Taemin’s “Move”, it does something special IMO: rather than repackage the song (as some of the other performances of other performer’s songs did), it takes the same mood/feel of “Move” and accentuates it further. This was probably SF9’s best performance in Kingdom and, in my humble opinion, it’s also probably the best performance over all in Kingdom so far.

    I loved it! The stage was beautiful with all these colors at the end. Each member had a change to shine (even if Taeyang and Zuho were the stars for me :p)

    It’s my favourite too with the It’s One’s dance performance.

Watched this week\’s Amazing Saturday. Jang Ki-yong is cute and likeable. I want to root for him, but he\’s disappointed me so much with his past few projects. Do I dare to have expectations of him?

    I liked him in Go Back Couple and Search WWW, he wasn’t the main character in both dramas so I’m rooting for him. ☺️

      I liked him in Go Back Couple and I thought he was okay in Come and Hug Me. I had problems with him Search, Born Again, and Kill It, but I can’t tell if my problems with him in these shows can be independently attributable to him or if he just got caught up in bad aspects of the writing of these shows (re Search, I thought Park Morgan and Park Ta-mi’s was the one very badly written part of the show — everything else I liked, although some things, like Jae-wook’s adorableness, I liked more than others).

        I liked him in GBC and Come and Hug Me but it was My Ajusshi that makes me think that he certainly has the acting chops but he needs to be in the hands of a capable director to pull them out. This show’s leads both go through the same issue, Hyeri is serviceable if the director lets her do what she is able to and so is JK. Both are limited though. I would say JKY has still experimented with different genres but he only shone in a few types of roles. The trailers make him look much like Morgan so I’ll check the first episode but most likely pass.

        I liked him at the time in Come and Hug Me. He was stiff but it was his first leading role. I’m not sure I would be so forgiving now since his acting has not grown. He may be one who would have been better off staying in supporting roles longer.
