Beanie level: Noble idiot

First impression: The Romance of Tiger and Rose

My sister is getting me to watch after she fell in love with it and Ding Yuxi, but I guess dramas labelled as fluffy romcoms just aren’t it for me anymore.

I started off loving this female heroine but only got to midway episode 6 and putting it on temporary hold because I’ve come to dislike her and the male lead. I’m supposed to support them but I don’t. Female lead doesn’t care about her female characters or female empowered city, and is readily okay with messing up the play world to survive. She sees herself as the only living person and everyone else as in-play characters? I can’t put myself in her shoes when the drama itself makes her personality foolish and only as deep as the rest of the in-play characters.

I can’t agree with the direction of this show. The male lead is planning to invade this city ruled by women for greed, the female lead commits blunders and destroys city rules for his sake, and yet for some reason the drama is framing these other women as bad? I’m supposed to support the leads so the tragedy plays out? Nope.

The city master is a powerful woman that loves her daughters, has objective oversight with prior readiness to appoint the capable 2nd princess (her stepdaugher) as the next city master, and charisma and backbone. Much more likable than the female lead who turns out to be just as spoiled and selfish as the original character she wrote. I hope the drama doesn’t villanize her and 2nd princess to prop up these leads. I hope the story develops the leads better, instead of resorting to this trick.

Basically, I take romcoms too seriously and I can’t turn my brain off to enjoy. I hope to change my mind later about this drama and that I can actually enjoy watching our two leads again like I did at the beginning because right now I don’t.

      It’s been too long since I’ve watched a pure romcom. It’ll take some effort to not look at it so critically but looking forward to enjoying it once I can just let it go.

Once Again (my rating: 3/5) Final thoughts

Finally finished a few days ago after dragging my feet during the last several episodes. It’s a pretty average drama, not in a bad way, but that it fits its shoe and that’s basically it. I’m going to forget this drama in a few weeks, not that I want to, but that it’s one of those shows that happened and then life moves on. Towards the end after resolutions and redemption arcs, I found the drama very comforting. It wrapped up major conflicts early and gave viewers fluff, which theoretically I don’t mind and even like to see but strangely I found it hard to finish exactly because it was just ongoing fluff – but much preferred than a rushed ending or a final resolution in the last few minutes, so even if it gets tedious, I’ll drag myself through fluff.

Not many memorable moments, my highlight scenes being 1) the brother-sister reunion and to a lesser degree 2) Kyujin finding his missing mother – emotional impact and great acting, the story progression and character development built both reunions up to those moments and delivered. The camaraderie between the four Song siblings was also great and a strong contrast to the interactions between the Yoon brothers; I preferred watching the latter duo just because they are so crazy and funny but comfort-wise the understanding between the Song siblings was very much needed and appreciated.

    I started this drama for LSY because of his variety show appearances. He is good at acting, perhaps better than I even expected, and that’s exciting. On the other hand, not sure how I feel about LMJ’s acting. From beginning to end, I get blown away by how gorgeous she is and I can’t believe she’s in her late 30’s (noona romances is a trend now, so why isn’t anyone casting her?). She plays a stoic and stony character, that part gets done right, but otherwise I can’t really grasp her layered character is probably my issue. LMJ has tons of charisma but no chemistry with her costars here, just my feelings and thinking during the drama and after. But I’m still open to watching her.

Once Again ep 49/100
The secondary couple has more screentime together than lead couple; it’s basically a romcom when they’re on screen. They met (again), became friends, fell in love, etc. And then the female lead has more nice interactions with the hospital director than male lead, and is even showing interest and changing for him. They met (again), are still friends, dating, etc. LSY in these past episodes has been downgraded to side character. I am given ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to wish for this main couple to get back together. This is such bad writing that even when I favor LSY it’s absolutely bonkers why Na-Hee and her new bf is not end game. My feelings for this show is a rollercoaster and I’m back to disliking it. Eugh. I’m pleading for the second half of this show to change my mind or I’ll have to force myself through this.

    I don’t know if its the acting between LSY-LMJ or directing, and piled on bad writing, Na-Hee throws side glances, watches with warm eyes, and has thoughtful considerate moments towards her new bf, she really looks like she’s in love with the director. Smiling when playing basketball, etc. It absolutely makes me no sense to disregard him later, from my present pov. These moments the lead couple doesn’t have since the drama started for viewers AT ALL and it hasn’t successfully shifted from the bickering and coldness towards each other, that part had been so dragged out. All we get are moments when other characters tells KJ he should be feeling something, and that’s just forcing it because writers don’t know what to do with KJ. So obvious. What even is this?

I had a dream that I was late to work but somehow I was able to squeeze in a whole kdrama during my morning prep. It was a sageuk with Moon in the title starring Kim Sohyun playing a noble lady rebellious tomboy warrior, second female lead Kim Yoojung playing a cute and loved by everyone sunshine noble lady, and tying up the love triangle is a refreshing princely courageous nobleman male lead (unrecognizable flower boy actor). My biggest takeaway from finishing this drama, as I was saying to my sister in the dream despite running late to work, was how great both female lead characters were and KSH and KYJ were the highlights. The writing was bad and they sidelined the female lead, the drama becoming too political and cutting down her screentime. So although I don’t remember anything else about the drama it’s definitely not one I would want to happen irl. A waste of both Kims.

Once Again: Only midway through episode 25 for now, don’t know if there will be developments later with supporting characters revealing ulterior motives or something similar, but interesting how viewers always support female lead to move on to the nice second guy while always hating any interaction between male lead and the nice second girl. Come on? Supporting female characters deserve better.

    ha ha.. i am also watching it 🙂 started yesterday.. on ep 11 (1 hour ep count). The older gen folks are so funny..

    However, i am surprised that this became bigger hit than the best of the weekend show hits in last few years (quite a standard weekend drama story flow… and the younger gen is not that impressive relatively speaking)

    birth secret with a twist.. thnkfully its not dad-son, daugther-dad-mom setup this time
    *******************
    the FL irritates me though. In all her drama she plays similar roles (my mind has started to find it difficult to dissociate her from these crass personalities, although i get it how smart and smooth she actually must be in real life specially given the man she married and how she lives in that setup)

      Oh! Nice! Someone watching it at the same time as me. I’m watching it on viki where they count the half episodes, total 100 instead of 50, so we’re probably around the same part generally. I saw the ratings but thought most weekend shows usually get a high amount of domestic attention, and didn’t think about it much. Am actually surprised it is considered a hit among other weekend shows. Not bad. It does seem pretty standard in terms of family drama and having irritable (but also relatable) characters. I guess its the cast or maybe an OTP that people were interested in. I saw that the secondary couple was pretty popular, although I’m in it for the main couple (no matter how toxic they might be). I’m annoyed by FL’s attitude most times, but it’s still tolerable for me and I’ve warmed up enough to her, and may even like her by the end *cross fingers*. (Plus, she’s so pretty!) I guess there’s a formula for smart but rude and low EQ lead characters that I give a pass. Particularly, I realized for me that formula works for both male leads and female leads. It really helps that I haven’t seen much of the actress Lee Minjung’s other works and Lee Sang Yeob has such warm puppy eyes that it balances her ice cold exterior.

      I share your view on LMJ. She has that vibe of too smart for anybody and her voice grating on my ear. My apologies to all the LMJ fans out there.

I started Once Again for Lee Sang Yeob but I hate his pairing with Lee Min Jung. Hard to watch when both are together. No chemistry. I can’t believe they were ever in love. There should be some lingering feelings, right? Or at least one or two moments in the present where I think, Ah- they still care for each other so I should support this couple because endgame is obvious (this is a kdrama after all). BUT I DON’T LIKE THEM TOGETHER AT ALL.

I just want to FF their scenes and in that case, I’d rather just not watch since my reason for watching is gone and the story is not doing it for me.

And yet…I struggle on. I hope this gets better. T_T

      I’m still watching! It helps that I’ve warmed up to their characters and I like them much better as a duo now that they aren’t bickering 24/7. Took some time to get there but I guess I have more patience if I like the actors.

These last few days, I allowed myself to fall for Lee Dohyun and it’s been spectacular.

I’d seen Sweet Home a while ago and initially I wouldn’t let myself warm to his character. In fact, I was so enamored with the other characters and gutted for them instead throughout (ie the sword guy, the gangster, the caretaker, the two gramps, and the male lead). But then the last episode happened and hit me like a truck and thus the 1st season concluded with LDH impacting me the most to my surprise. Of everyone, I carried his role as Eun Hyuk away. He lingered at the back of my mind but I wouldn’t let myself pursue it.

These past several days with Running Man/Knowing Brothers guest appearances, Hotel Del Luna cuts, and 18 Again later, I’m in love. I’m so glad he won a Baeksang Award for his role in 18 Again especially. This boy can act. His future is so bright. Just crossing my fingers that he chooses his projects wisely.

Also 18 Again is that drama that I put on for myself to watch and then while passing by my brother-in-law sat down, and then my sister, and then another sister, and they all ended up watching with me and requesting that I put it on pause whenever they left the room. It’s the perfect drama to recommend to family and friends of all ages.

Some thoughts on a bit of Start Up discussion I\’ve seen, from an outside perspective. I haven\’t started this drama yet but have been keeping an eye on comments/reviews from various sites as I prefer to marathon and don\’t mind spoilers, considering if a drama is worth to pick up after its run.

I\’m kind of surprised at how hung up a few people are on who is designated Male Lead or Second Lead, the kdrama formula that usually determines endgame OTP. Although the tropes and kdrama frame is still there, the refreshing character mold is most important to me. Like many people, I have preconceived notions of main lead status \”rights\” from my experience with kdramas, so it\’s nice to be surprised at which narratives this writer decided to develop, and which characters get an interesting story/quirks (as well be sad at which ones doesn\’t). If we take away the marketing and just blind dive into the drama, what\’s left? Strong writing, weak writing. And actors that fit (or do not fit) their role (whether its \”marketed\” as a main lead or not).

Flashbacks to discussions around Dream High and ICHYV.

Still keeping this drama on my must watch list and hopefully it ties up well enough.

ALIVE (2020) Rating: 4/10

Inconsistent zombie sense. Strong plot armor for the leads.

Things happen in this movie with no logic because it just needs to happen.

*spoiler rant in comments*

Maybe I just didn’t understand? Or my suspension of disbelief wasn’t strong enough.

    Q: So, these zombies can detect humans through sounds?
    A: YES. They have a 6th sense power.
    Q: But there’s hundreds of zombies moving throughout the city and trapped within rooms. Grunting, stomping around, and bumping into things. How do they distinguish sounds made by humans?
    A: Well, that’s why it’s a 6th sense. They just know. Except sometimes, like when a phone rings in the next room, they don’t know it’s not a human and it draws them away.

    Q: To survive, our main leads just have to be quiet, right?
    A: Well, except there’s this one zombie that sees a string tied around a ball and just knows a living human must be at the end of that string. Even when the male lead throws broken bottles and flies a toy at the zombie and draws its attention, the zombie wants the unconscious human at the end of the string that it can’t see or hear. It’s a new zombie power that detects through mere existence instead of sound.

    Q: What’s this thing with closed doors?
    A: Sometimes when zombies are chasing the main characters and they run behind a closed door, the zombies will go away eventually. Sometimes, it doesn’t matter and a zombie will come in. When a horde of zombies run to the female lead’s closed door, she’s frightened to tears, so the male lead has to lure the zombies away with another sound.

    Q: At the end, when the female lead was screaming, why didn’t that attract the other zombies?
    A: Just because. We need the gunshots that follow to attract the zombies instead. That’s louder.
    Q: But the helicopter noise afterward is even more loud. The main characters hear it and so should the zombies. The zombies are lured away by the helicopter, right?
    A: Not this time. The zombies stay inside the building because the plot needs them to attack the main characters as they run.

    Q: I don’t get it. Is sound important or not?
    A: Sometimes.
    Q: Just tell me, do the main characters learn to use sound to their advantage?
    A: Only once. After that, when they both run to the 8th floor, they don’t distract with sound. They fight through zombies and survive on main character power. When they both run to the rooftop, they also don’t distract with sound either. They bravely fight through zombies and is saved because of main character power.

    Isn’t that just fantastic character growth and storytelling?

    PS. Yoo Ah In was A++, even though I hated his character. Everything else was MEH.

      I totally agree!! And Park Shin Hye’s char! I thought she was somewhat smart until she decided to just jump down in the middle of the crowd of zombies with just a ice pick thing to get to YooAhIn. How could you be sure that you wont get bitten along the way??? Why not zipline across and at least fricken let YooAhIn know what you were going to do!

A song that fits my current mood: God Tree composed & sung by Hua Chenyu, a prominent Chinese artist of the post-90’s generation. He chose to sing this on “Singer 2020” E6, a competitive music variety show.

A colossal song that brings a sense of doom and gloom, but also hope.

I fear the gloomy sky
Devastating waves sweeping, the land became human purgatory
All are terrified
I fear the bitter cold
Where all beings are not spared
All lose control

Crash and cold…

I fear lightning and thunder
Adults are banished while children are trapped
All huddle together
I fear darkness and pain
Step on the ruins and fall deeper and deeper
All are lost

Crash and cold…

Supposedly there\’s no more toilet paper, but today my mom waltzed into Family Dollar and found a bunch. Priced the same as any other day. I guess some stores are just invisible to the mass.

Also, I told my sister that this toilet paper issue is only because majority of US Americans don\’t use a bidet. Maybe it\’ll finally become a thing people invest in after this coronavirus passes.

One of my favorite songs by one of my favorite Japanese bands. The message of this song is timeless.

SOS by Sekai No Owari

People needing to be saved
Scream out for help every day
But we grow numb to the sounds
And feelings slowly start to drown

The first time, we can hear a voice
But soon it all becomes noise
Fading to silence in the end
I know it doesn’t make sense…

When sound all ceases to exist
People think that means happiness
And all the sounds that used to be
Are all just noise to you and me

The cries of help disappear
The silence numbs all of our ears

And when we stop listening
Those screams stop meaning anything

Don’t you let your heart grow numb to everyone
Oh child, listen to the “sound of silence”
Saving someone else means saving yourself
It’s true, and I’m sure you know it too

      Yay! Happy to oblige! Thank you for your interest and for asking!

      Some quick background info: They started as an indie band without a drummer, just a group of friends, thus why the 4th member is a DJ (the clown). In a way it’s helped them try a variety of things in their music. They have started to pursue a more mature concept, but they’re most known for their earlier whimsical fantasy concepts + abstract themes and lyrics.

      Here’s a mix of songs that cover some of the various things they’ve done through the years:

      Angels and Demons CC English

      Death Disco CC English

      Dragon Night (English version)

      Moonlight Station

      Anti-Hero

      Hey Ho

      Lost (Acoustic version) ft Clean Bandit

      My most favorite songs from them are actually from their first 2 albums but its not comprehensive enough and you might not enjoy it.

I AM MAD. I finally met one of those rude, unreasonable people from legends and that person is my neighbor just two houses down.

Our neighborhood have A LOT of dogs and owners who do not pick up after their dogs relieve on the lawns and \”road verges\” (that strip of grass between the sidewalk and road). I notice and I always make sure to pick up after my dog because it\’s respectful and responsible.

So I just took my dog walking and that neighbor got out of her car to yell at me for a few days ago letting my dog relieve himself on her road verge (I never let me dog go onto someone\’s front lawn itself). She immediately was hostile and said she will call the police. I told her I always pick up after my dog and she kept going on about not doing it on her lawn and again ended with threatening to call the police.

If you hate it, okay I get it. I\’ll drag my dog pass your house so he won\’t do it on your precious strip of grass, but don\’t start by being an asshole already. I wasn\’t aware of your preferences but I don\’t think I was doing anything illegal. I will respect your wishes if you just ask. Why can\’t people communicate without being so rude? Also don\’t blame the feces of other irresponsible dog owners on me.

I walk my dog daily but being that self-conscious and insecure person, I don\’t even want to anymore because I will pass by their house. Now I wonder if the other neighbors feel as hostile especially when they see me with my dog and it\’s bugging me.

    Don’t feel like that.
    If you’re picking after your dog, you’re doing right and you should not really care for what others are thinking.
    I guess that neighbor just saw you once and decided it was your dog the one who annoys her.
    There are people like that in the world, who are offended by everything and that will accuse you of being the reason to be offended, just like a bad baddie in a bad Kdrama.

Hua Chenyu is a Chinese singer-songwriter who does not write love songs and rarely sings it. But for the competitive music variety show Singer 2020 (E5) he chose to sing Eason Chan\’s \”Us\” as it resonates with him. He stated he will not sing this song again.

He specificially requested that this stage be shot in one front view, with no cuts or other angles. This highlighted his emotional performance and the feelings he brought to the surface to share with the audience.

I don’t like to be dramatic. Trying not to get too worked up about the coronavirus but I also started fearing losing my job because of the impact. It’s going to be a hard year for my company. 2019 was already a hard year for our industry and getting worse. :'(

Anyway, a beautiful song from Hua Chenyu for patients of the coronavirus “You have to believe this is not the last day” with various Chinese dialects at the end.

Easy Fortune Happy Life is on Netflix!

Just found out. Ah, my youth. Debating if I should rewatch and try to change my mind about it. I hated it so much, lol. Used to love the male lead actor here and couldn’t wait for him to change from support to lead actor in a romance drama, but his lead role in this drama killed my good feelings.

This is why it’s important for actors who’ve played heart throbbing second leads to chose their “break out” lead roles wisely. It’s so easy to move on since so many lead roles are bad/uninteresting and the SLS that got them popular can also turn around and bite them when they finally lead.

        I’ve gone back to watch shows that I really loved, only to find that my POV had changed and my view of the ML changed as well.

          Oh? Any ones that changed that stands out?

          (I wanted to rewatch I Hear Your Voice and just barely skimmed it yesterday. I was surprised to be squicked by the noona-minor romance, which surprised me because it was THE SHOW that made LJS and LBY pop for me. Thank goodness for that time skip! Maybe if I actually immersed myself instead of skimming I’d get onboard again, lol.)

            Secret garden. I used to love HB’s role, but when I went back, he just felt like a pure stalker to me…..
            umm…. BOF, I used to love the 2nd lead(i forgot his name) but when I rewatched BoF, i found that he was just using FL….

            @gmelenco Ah yes, BOF. It took a while to realize SL was never as in love with FL as ML so his unrequited love wasn’t as heartbreaking.
