    alright… ep 1 done and I’m confused cuz they have mixed up the storytelling (i read that they did)… I hope it makes sense to those not familiar with the book…

      I have watched episode one and the problem is. It the timeline at all, but the fact the drama is a bit… hollow? I mean, when it was supposed to be tragic and emotional I was totally indifferent. Anyway, I will watch episode 2 and let’s see.

        ohhh, wait for more story. i don’t know why they decided to change the chronology of the written story – which to me made better sense… but i think they are trying to appease a western audience, so maybe they have to interject the later (1989) generational segments to keep the new viewers engaged or something?

        by the third ep, it will come together. i just wish they kept to the pace of the book, but my husband and daughter didn’t seem to mind. they figured later things will make better sense…

        in the end, i know it will all come together, but i wish they didn’t fragment the chronology/pace of the original story of the book……

        now i can see that

this is haunting, but also beautifully hopeful… cellist playing Bach in Kharkiv.

    It might be more him than her given some of his interviews I’ve read.

    Why it would be Kim Tae-Hee’s fault? She’s not part of the production.

    She didn’t have issue to play a woman in love in Bye, Mama.

    Has he had kissing scenes in other dramas? I can’t remember. As they pointed out, Rain and Kim Bum were the ones in a rom-com.

wahhhh, what\’s with the delays on subbing for Tracer and The One and Only…..

    Tracer is made by wavve and those ones rarely get licensed. All this time I thought One and Only is a Wednesday-Thursday drama since it comes out on viki on a Wednesday.

      ohhh, so the subs aren’t out yet for OandO… but Tracer may take way longer then, huh…

        Yeah. It gets uploaded on viki Wednesday my time (PST). I’m part of the subbing team but now that winter break is over, I dont get to do much, so as other volunteers but we try to get it completed at least by the time the next episode comes out.

          Woahhh you’re on a subbing team! Like wow! You don’t have to wait for the subs and that’s sucha cool thing!
          It’s fascinating to know that the subs I’m reading might be from one of fellow Beanies! Ah idk why I’m so glad to know this!! 🤩

            The reason why I learned Korean in the first place lol. Back in the days, subs are not easy to come by. It’s like you have to do an underground deal to get them hahahaha I had to fend for myself

          Ahh so you learnt?! I thought it was not possible! Like *whispering* even I tried to learn it but then I don’t know anybody who speaks the language, and without speaking it never comes, I learnt all the Hangul, alphabets, tried to read also, but then left it all! How did u do it? How long it took? Is it really possible?!

            I started about 13 years ago with the basic stuff like Hangul. Didn’t really get far. Just learned the basic phrases then just watched dramas and variety shows. About three years later, I somehow woke up and understood more when I watched. Then I chat with Koreans online to practice. Also talk to myself in Korean since I dont have natives around me. It was 90% just watching dramas and absorbing it, I guess. I’m also in the Go Billy discord and I practice speaking with other learners there. I can send you an invite if you’re interested!

      Omo, so it wasn’t a wed-thurs drama? 😶
      Idk why but it’s hard for me to watch weekdays drama as I forget abt them (who remembers weekdays they’re all the same) still have to catch-up on last 2 eps of 1&only!

    I can only shake my head. With Snowdrop in the news, this reminds me of how Chun Doo-hwan and President Roh Tae-woo led a military coup and were responsible for the Gwangju Massacre but were pardoned after only two years in prison. Look at how that turned out. Chun Doo-hwan spent years spreading lies that the rightwing want to make the truth.

    This is bullshit. I am not Korean, but even I feel disgusted by this. I cannot even imagine how Koreans feel about this. Politicians never face consequences for their heinous actions. It’s really difficult not to feel completely cynical about current (and future) state of affairs – and that applies around the world.

        it’s best if you have AdBlock, stops the popups. but it did take a long time to load, but i was able to watch it after i let it buffer for about 20 minutes. maybe it’s fixed by now…

Lost was such a quiet, deep, seemingly dark story. but it was about our primal need for empathy & love… i started for RJY\’s long hair, but was rapt by the story till the end. loved it.

this should be the last of it for seattle… supposed to cool down to 69°F by 4 or 5 a.m. if we don’t melt first…

    My weather app has had more suspense and twists lately than a kdrama.
    30 degrees hotter in Seattle for most of the day than where I live in the suburbs of Los Angeles.
    About 10 degrees hotter than near Tucson Arizona where someone I know lives.
    That’s just WRONG!

      seriously!!! we’re like rain dwellers that complain it doesn’t get hot in summer until august… i think we’ll have to stop complaining… only about 30% of the households in seattle have A/C, cuz we usually get one week of over 85-90° each summer.

      kinda weird not seeing people out walking their dogs or kids on bikes/trikes… (i think there are still more dogs than kids in seattle).

    I feel so bad for you guys. I lived in Minneapolis where a/c is regarded as unnecessary and those 90+ days were truly hell. I hope you cool off soon and send the heat . . . anywhere but here.

      oh, i don’t envy you midwesterners — my sister lived in chicago and mequon areas, talk about severe summer heat/humidity and subzero snowfalls in winter… it was so cold one thanksgiving season that we couldn’t go into downtown chicago to go shopping… 0° plus -11° windchill factor.

        😁 I grew up in Chicago. One Christmas was so cold that when we put our groceries in the car trunk, by the time we got home the cells of the lettuce had literally exploded into green mush. Then again, another Christmas was so beautiful that people were sailing on the Lake. Weather!

      and today it felt “refreshing” to go outside in the afternoon to feel 84°F with a breeze! tonight, we got even more relief!!! a wonderful onshore wind that cooled everything west of the cascade mountain range down — it’s a lovely 63°F right now at 2 am… i had every window and door open to blow out the residual heat!
