Beanie level: Errand boy

I can’t believe Yumi’s Cells is gonna be multiple seasons. I didn’t sign up for that. WHY DIDN’T ANY OF YOU TELL ME?! I’m really invested in Woong. Ugh.

    Same! I don’t know how they will wrap up Woong’s story in a way that is not as hurtful because he’s the best boy. Also, will the seasons really happen, the rating isn’t as high. I hope they do.

    This makes me wonder if I’ve forgotten about any dramas I’ve watched that have a season 2 scheduled … and, like you, I didn’t realize that was the set up.

    OMO really? I guess I’ll have to put a pause in watching the recent eps then, since it’s entering angst territory.

    I couldn’t finish episode 1. Don’t look at me.

    I like it so far. It’s quirky and cute, especially the animation. I’m a bit worried about how they adapt the 5 relationships Yumi had in the manhwa into the drama though. I’m staying for the next 3-4 episodes to see how the adaptation goes.

    🙋I liked episode 1 (I have a soft spot for the little “cells”).

    It seems fun so far, although I had to pause out of second hand embarrassment about five times in the first 15 minutes. I don’t know anything about the manwha though so no idea about how well it’s been adapted.

    I loved the webtoon – btw, it took me a while to warm up to it… The esthetics may look like this is a bit naive or childish, but the views on relationships and growth in the source material are really deep and nuanced. So, about the drama: I enjoyed ep 1 and am optimistic that it will honour the source material – if that is the case, I’d tell all doubtful Beanies to stick with it a little longer, it may grow on you the same way the webtoon did for me!
    And Kim Goeun is the cutest Yumi, I just adore her and her little fringe

      I’m watching it for Kim Go Eun but those bangs are not cute to me. I’ve never liked those kinds of bangs. 😆

    I liked it.

    But the back and forth between the real scenes and the cells ones are a little bit tiring. It’s hard to immerse totally in the scene and the story. It makes a simple scene lasting pretty long.

      For me, the cells are half of the reason I’m watching it.

    I liked the 1st episode, but in the 2nd episode I started wondering if its going to be exploring only the romane aspect of Yumi’s life, given that “love” is a major strength of Yumi.

    The romance thus far seems kiddish though the scenes are funny, but then the drama’s wikipedia states it is planned for multiple seasons, so I don’t know if the intended target audience are grown adults.

    However, 😀 😀 do they have the “Naughty” cell and with all its dialogues and in all its glory? 🙂

Does anyone know an illustrator that does small commissions? I want an animated likeness done.

The resurgence of brutal censorship in China is gonna make it even harder for the entertainment industry. I feel bad for the citizens because life is hard enough already but now most of the things that contribute to their happiness is being stripped away daily.

I feel like if it were Ik Joon, Song Hwa would be more distraught.

Is Lee Soo Hyuk EVER going to get the girl?!

    Right?! I was thinking of that too when I watched Doom yesterday. I hope he gets a good leading role soon!

    He better get the second lead girl in Doom. I like Kang Tae-oh, but the show better not snub Lee Soo-hyuk in favour of him.

Someone asked if there was a female CEO led drama a little while ago. I came across a Chinese one, Begin Again. I’m only on ep 2 so Idk if it’s good or not. Leads are very good looking, contract marriage and most importantly CEO is a strong female lead.

    Leads are indeed good-looking, they have nice chemistry, the show is light-hearted and funny, and FL is well-acted (personally, I find Gong Jin sort of stiff). However, the show is ridiculous and unbelievable. If you go in with low expectations and with the mindset that it’s an easy time-pass, the show is quite fine; however, if you take it even slightly seriously, you’ll probably get super annoyed.

    I finished that and ffed through the scenes of second OTP which I didn’t like. I did enjoy the story though especially FL. ML is a pretty face but he’s wooden. Still, it’s a great mindless watch and I enjoyed it a lot.

Is there still no way to disable the video player?

Is my love for K-dramas waning or is there really just nothing to watch? Like Kocowa barely has new dramas airing.

    I’m loving Vincenzo. Did you watch Hello, Me? It was a throwback to older dramas and was better with each episode.

      I like Vincenzo, too. It’s great fun. Not an amazing drama, but it’s clever, funny, and SJK, JYB, and KDY are putting in solid performances. Also, TAEC! Our boy needs acting lessons for sure, but how can you not love him? He’s a giant teddy bear.

      I think you recommended HM to me last time. I did try it again but like the first time, I couldn’t get into it. I absolutely love Kim Young Kwang but I couldn’t even make it to his character’s intro.

      The most important question!!! Every time GD (my ultimate love) posts on IG I yell at my phone “RELEASE NEW MUSIC!!!!! Stop jet-setting around having fun.” I love that he is enjoying life but c’mon dude. Now I know how Rhianna’s fans feel. 😂😂😂

    It might just be Kocowa has nothing – there are a bunch of different streaming services I use and I find that sometimes I’ll have heaps of options on one and nothing that interests me at all on others.

    Or, you know, maybe time for a break from kdramas 🤷‍♀️ Sometimes a break brings you back refreshed

      It’s been months since Kocowa has had more than one thing I want to watch. Since the beginning of the year, I notice there aren’t many dramas being released even though it’s the big 3 public channels.

I need a good drama to watch. I went back to New Amsterdam only to have it piss me off.

Love ft Marriage is depressing as hell. I don’t like either of the female leads.

    Are you watching Hello, Me? You might like it.

      No, I didn’t care for the female lead. Should I give it another try?

        Maybe? I love the exuberant semi-bratty teen (I know some won’t), the main characters all grow on you, and it gets more heartwarming as it goes along. I don’t enjoy the bathroom humor, but the rest of it has me laughing most of the time. It’s also wacky in the right way for me.
