Beanie level: Errand boy

Why no new episode of Same Bed, Different Dreams 2 this week?

    Iinm because of Penthouse specials. The episodes for PH week one were around 90 mins each and each ep divided into 3 parts. As a result SBS variety shows on Mon and Tues were rescheduled/postponed.

    Seems like a marketing strategy by SBS to me and they actually got good ratings for both PH ep 1-2. So the strategy did work in their favor 😆

      =( I like SBDD2! I don’t watch it all the time, but these days Kyung-joon and Shin-young are back on, plus their adorable baby son. I was so looking forward to seeing them.

I know I speak for everybody who’s watching 18 Again when I see: MOAR LDH SHIRTLESS SCENES! LOL

WOW! What a dumb ending to Record of Youth. Also, what was Jeong-ha’s role in this story? I feel like she was just a prop for Hye-joon’s coming-of-age story. SMH.

LMFAO, Start-up managed to make a joke about negative numbers! This show, man, this show.

THE SCENE ON THE BUS!! OMG OMG OMG, Nam Joo-hyuk is killing this character

    He’s just perfect. Perfect. I loved the scene.

      I did too! It was so nice.

      This show is hitting the right notes for me so far. Contrivances and cliches aside, I think I’ll enjoy this ride. Well, except for the painful SLS — love Nam Do-sand though I might, I still ship Dal-mi with Ji-pyung.

Start-up episode 4: This show is super trope-y and yet it’s so cute!!

Okay, I am so totally on board with Start-up. Don’t disappoint me, show! You’ve built up my expectations so much with these past three episodes.

    It’s SO good! The ending of episode 3 was hilarious!

      I know, right?! I had zero expectations for this show — it wasn’t on my radar at all until last week, when it came out, and I was iffy about the premise — but it has really impressed me with its first three episodes. I’m just hoping the show continues to do what is clearly working for it.

    Ep 3 was so fantastic!, I almost don’t want to watch ep4 for fear of being disappointed!

    And like you, this took me totally by surprise too. It wasn’t even on my watchlist. The posters and teasers were so meh, it did not make me want to watch at all. The first 3 eps have been so predictable but also so delightful!

    If they keep this up (and I hope they do!), I see it heading in the direction of a good old-fashioned rom-com (with the startup/tech setting being the only indicator of it being set in the present). It’s got all the plotlines in order – mistaken identity, pen pals, and love letters. The angel (investor) in disguise. The benevolent grandmother. The evil stepdad. I’m loving it!

Okay, ep 3 has made me really like Do-san. I think it’s so lovely that he wants to “turn a misunderstanding into reality!”

    I’m halfway through the ep but he’s such a NERD i LOVE IT dramaland needs more NERD male leads

      Right? Nam Joo-hyuk has really done a good job with portraying this guy. His gestures, his expressions, even his choice of language and the way he speaks are so on point. He may be a good-looking guy (I mean he’s being played by NJH), but after a few moments of watching him it becomes totally clear that he’s just a lanky, socially awkward, lovable nerd.

        right..

        everyone is killing it in their roles. Everyone! .. just improvement.. NJH seems to have really grown over last couple of years.. his last few dramas have been decent acting wise (i think he did well in the in between movies too)

        My biggest and most satisfying surprise is Suzy ๐Ÿ™‚

        Is it just me or does NJH seem like he’s put on some weight for this role? Or maybe I’ve only ever seen him as the lanky swimmer with toned abs in Weightlifting Fairy… Either way, I agree! He’s got the nerd feel totally right!

        2

          I think he might have gained a wee bit of weight, although he’s still super skinny and tall from what I can tell. I wouldn’t be surprised if he still had the abs in this role.

      I love that scene where he is so happy to receive a text from a girl, props to NJH too, he really is doing a great job.

Awww, Ji-pyung is totally jealous. This show is giving me a real dilemma over whether I like NDS or HJP more.

The conversation between Ji-pyung and Do-san in Ji-pyungโ€™s car at the beginning of episode 3 reminds me of an old joke. A logician gets on to an elevator with another man. The man, wanting to make small talk, asks if the logician has children. The logician says, โ€œYes. I have one child.โ€ In response, the man asks, โ€œIs it a boy or a girl?โ€ The logician replies, โ€œYes.โ€

    I actually took a logic class in college (does that explain anything??).
    One exam question was to define so-and-so (sorry, it’s been 50 years so I forget some details), and I wrote that I didn’t recall that term but it sounded like blah-blah-blah. Prof wrote “good guess” on my paper and gave me full points on that question.
    !
    ๐Ÿ™‚
    About 30 years later it occurred to me that maybe that was the point. It was a LOGIC class after all — maybe we were supposed to be able to logic things out if we didn’t remember them — or even if it hadn’t been covered at all ๐Ÿ™‚

      I mean the surprising thing to me is that you remember something that happened 50 years ago. I don’t remember anything about exams I wrote six months ago, much less exams or assignments I had from longer than that.

      I took many mathematical logic classes in university (Including a graduate course). Basic logic is useful in everyday life (knowing basic logical fallacies like affirming the consequent, knowing the difference between necessary conditions and sufficient conditions, appreciating basic proof techniques, etc.), but advanced logic is pretty esoteric, even in mathematics (it’s a pretty niche subject, to say the least). The one nice thing, though, is that there are some concepts from logic that seem to be culturally in vogue — Godel’s incompleteness theorem, Cantor’s work on infinity, etc. — so when people talk about these things and pretend to know what they’re saying, I can safely roll my eyes and ignore them.

        FWIW, I don’t recall what the question was, only that I admitted I was guessing and that Prof wrote “Good guess”. That kinda stands out in my academic career. And I just took the one basic logic class and have zero recollection of Godel, Cantor, etc. You can roll your eyes now ๐Ÿ™‚

          Oh, I only roll my eyes at people who pretend they know things that they clearly don’t! LOL

          I still think it’s pretty cool that you remember this. My episodic memory is trash.

JI-HOON IS SO CUTE!

    I kinda want him to stop calling himself appa in front of his niece. She clearly doesn’t like it and j hope he picks up on that. He’s a solid guy

      Yeah, I think he needs to give his daughter time. She clearly misses her biological father a lot. Some day she might come around to calling him by that name, but that would be her choice. I think Ji-hoon should stick to calling himself her uncle for now.

Also, I love how “You Don’t Know Men” is Deok-jin’s theme song re the teacher. It’s an unexpectedly hilarious touch.

      IT’S SO GOOD! Light and fun, and then out of nowhere a bang of emotional release. Although the concept turns out to be less like Go Back Couple than I thought, it’s giving me the same feelings. Highly recommend it!

        I haven’t watched GBC. That’s on my list too! I’m just bugged it’s not available on a legal channel here. iQiyi has the rights, it seems, but it’s not available in my region. (instead I see a lot of crappy cdramas on iq)

          You’re a way better person than me! LOL. I usually don’t have scruples against watching things on non-legal platforms. I figure my patronage of multiple legal platforms (Kocowa, Netflix, and iQiyi) makes it okay. I do agree it’s a pain that it’s not available on legal platforms for convenience’s sake, though; like you, I can’t seem to find it on iQiyi anywhere.

            Oh haha no no. I don’t think it’s about being better. It’s just me being super-lazy. ๐Ÿ˜€ I find the legal sites generally easier to navigate, and less stressful about popups (even with blockers etc) and other unseemly things. So I like to avoid them if possible. Kocowa isn’t available here, argh. I use Netflix and Viki regularly. iQiyi has the stuff I want to watch in its VIP category, and I’m not inclined to pay yet. Their library isn’t interesting enough for me to want to. Let’s see.

            I’m going to watch this week! Drowning in a load of work, so just keeping up with Startup which is easy access for now. ๐Ÿ˜€ That ep 3. Still laughing about it. I hope there’s more in store!

OMG that last scene of episode 2! I was squealing! Nam Joo-hyuk cleans up gud. But now I have a total dilemma because I <3 Seon-ho as well and Ji-pyung is such a sweetheart in this show.

One thing I will say about Start-up is that, by predisposition alone, I should despise this show. I hate techn companies and the tech industry. Hate them with a burning passion. And yet…

The AI related humour is great in Start-up.
