Beanie level: Errand boy

I just got around to starting Business Proposal. Am I tripping or does Ahn Hyo Seop look different? I said to my daughter that he “looks like the guy from Father is Strange”, then I saw comments in the BP open thread talking about AHS getting a bad rap for his acting. HUH?!!! That’s the same guy? Maybe his face has filled out more since he’s older but I swear he looks different. Like Bryce Dallas Howard and Jessica Chastain look alike…you know what I’m saying?

    Ahn Hyo-seop was in Father is Strange. Personally, I don’t think he really looks that different, minus his face just looking older and more mature with time. That said, he totally could’ve gotten procedures done too. I don’t really know or care much about stuff like that unless it inhibits an actor’s acting. Kind of accepted that stuff like that is normal for celebs to do.

    Call it what it is, plastic surgery gone wrong.

    How his face went completely different from his last show that was less than a year ago, this is obvious.

    I think the famous jawline for a lot of Korean males means to be underweight. At a normal weight, their face is more chubby. When they leave the army, their face are rounder and they loose weight and it becomes sharper.

    It’s the case for a lot of idols.

    I think he just got older and put on some weight. He used to look really boyish, and that’s gone. I think they should have done his hair differently to better suit his face.

    He just has more weight on him. He’s not the skinny kid from Still 17. He looks the same as when he was in Romantic Doctor 2 to me.

      I didn’t watch RD2, the last drama I saw him in was FIS so he looks really different to me.

    Yes, BDH and Jessica Chastain!! I knew they each reminded me of someone. It never clicked until now 😂

    I guess his face filled up a bit with age. And maybe he got some tweeks – who cares? It’s
    a bit disingenuous to criticise people for getting plastic surgery when they work in a field where good looks are such a big asset.
    I’m waiting for this drama to land in my region, but saw him in Lovers of the Red Sky and thought he looked stunning wearing those red contact lenses

      Well first off I didn’t criticize him for anything I just said he looks different. You come off sanctimonious and hypocritical saying who cares then calling me disingenuous. It was an observation, not a condemnation.

        I’m sorry for misunderstanding your comment, I did think that there was an underlying critique there. There wasn’t, my bad.
        Just for the record, I didn’t call you disingenuous. I stated that the action of criticizing performers for getting PS is disingenuous. Simply, there are beautifying practices that are well accepted by the public, say, hiting the gym, wearing make up, dieting, while other practices are frowned upon, such as plastic surgery or padding. There seems to be this weird idea that if people’s beauty is “fake”, then they are cheating and not worthy of the admiration and praise “true beauty” deserves, and I was commenting on that. I’m not saying that you said that, it’s just a mindset that I come across irl and online. Hope this clears the air, I’m not coming to DB to get mad or to get people mad at me

From Lee Soo Hyuk to my very first bias. Got7 brought me into kpop. This is the gif(t) that piqued my interest. It should be a sin to watch someone so much younger than me move his body like that but I learned appreciate the eye candy. JB\’s body rolls are a thing the world should appreciate.

Love February

To the man that caught my eye and started my journey into K-Entertainment seven and a half years ago. I still think you are an otherworldly beauty and have yet to get the lead or the girl in a drama like you deserve. Lee Soo Hyuk born Lee Hyuk Soo, you will forever have a special place in my heart.
Love,
February

    He got the girl in Doom. But the lead role is still elusive.

    Why doesn’t he get the lead? I like him very much. I’m not sure if he’s a good actor yet. He was great in High School, Valid Love and as Vampire Gwi. Not so good in the latest shows.

      I don’t know why he hasn’t gotten the lead, he’s just as good as quite of few of the other leads. One day soon hopefully.

        Yes, he is not only “just as good”, he is a lot better than some, because some are terrible kkk. I am curious about these “politics” and choices behind kdramas casting.

You Are My Spring was really good. SHJ did have some really good scenes. The first time I\’ve liked her in anything.

I love Kim Dong Wook but don\’t really care for Seo Hyun Jin (even tho\’ I think she\’s the best female kisser), is You Are My Spring good? Decent ending?

    YAMS is to me one of the best dramas in 2021 (but then again, I’ve made so may poor choices this year). The OTP is just adorable and the mystery part is well done (you know, for a romcom that has to have a serial killer involved, and we all wonder why). Both Kim Dong Wook and Seo Hyun Jin are top notch. I can’t recommend it enough.

    SHJ has some really good or even great scenes in this one. I think this show allows her to really show off her acting chops. KDW is also great here. Their relationship is really mature imo; but the most passionate ML for SHJ is still Erik (Another Miss Oh) for me.

    I love him and can’t stand her. I didn’t last many episodes.

      I wouldn’t say I can’t stand her but she’s definitely not a favorite. For me that’s Jo Bo Ah. We’ll see if I love him enough to see past her.

    I love You Are My Spring. Ending is decent as far as kdrama endings go, yes.

The Woong breakup feels just like my first kdrama heartbreak when I realized the 2nd lead doesn\’t get the girl. 💔😢😭

    Woong and Yumi’s breakup is one of the saddest and most realistic breakup I’ve ever seen in kdramaland 😭

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 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.

    i stopped at ep 1.. the voices of the cells annoy me and manga is just too cute..will pick it up again

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

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.
