Beanie level: Eunuch in drag

I am watching 100 Days My Prince again, skipping the palace politic scenes.

The drama is as much fun as when I watched it the first time.

I ended up going to bed at 3:30am last night XD

I am watching Fluttering Alert, mainly because I like the main lead actor, Chun Jung Myung. He has the tendency to pick up roles where the character is a kindhearted and warm average joe (or slightly higher than average). Sometimes he’s a chaebol, but unlike typical arrogant chaebols that we see on dramaland, his chaebol version is humble, kind and warm.

The actor doesn’t entirely fit my definition for handsome, but the warm character he portrayed on screen more than made up for it. It made me fall in love with his character. He just grows on you. I felt the same thing for Rory in Doctor Who.

Except for his character in Heart to Heart. I can’t stomach that character.

    Wait, he’s 182cm tall!

    He looks tiny, like, shorter that average ML in dramaland.

    Brain is confused

Nobody told me Aquaman was such a painful watch. DC should learn from Marvel on how to make good and fun superheroes movies.

Aquaman makes Abyss seems like an gem.

    The first time I saw Aquaman I was like ‘huh, this is all right‘ possibly because it was the first time I’d been to the movies in ages.
    Then I had to watch it again at home because my husband hadn’t seen it, and no, it was actually terrible 😄

    If you had asked me, I would have warned you.
    it was tedious. like 2 “okay” movies squeezed into a long “meh” one.

I am watching Lovely Horribly. There is nothing lovely about it, just horrible.

It was so bad that I need to watch another drama by Ji Hoo, Was it Love, to douse the horribleness.

Lovely Horribly was so badly written the the plot points doesn’t make sense as if the characters are incapable of thinking rationally like a human being. The attempts at comedy were awkward and not funny. No chemistry at all between the lead characters, how the heck they fall in love, anyway?

I watched Abyss last week. Why do I feel like I’m in an abyss when I am watching it?

Can we have an episode with just Jo Yeong and Eun Sup?

I am willing to offer Lee Min Ho as a sacrifice.

I marathoned My Holo Love over the weekend. While I have learned to ignore all those fancy-looking software codes and ridiculously interactive IDE in dramas, I almost threw my pillow at my notebook during the scene where Nan Do discovered the hidden video recording from his mum by superimposing code files.

I MEAN, WHAT THE HECK?!

SUPERIMPOSING CODE FILES?! Who the heck does that?

SUPERIMPOSING CODE FILES THAT PRODUCES HIDDEN VIDEO FILE?! What the heck?

I seriously felt like flipping a table

    I’m a techno-illiterate, so that wasmok for me… But I was bugged that he could fool her for so long pretending to be Holo, like, Girl, don’t you realize when someone is standing right next to you? (breathing, smelling, releasing heat, etc)

Entity Framework Core provides no built-in support for it, and this tutorial doesn’t show you how to implement it.

This type of sentence is what caused my colleagues to think that I am slacking at work when they hear me suddenly laugh, when in reality I am reading a serious, technical and work-related article

    Gosh if laughing is considered as slacking in the office..then i’m quite the slacker 😅

      They assumed I am reading something non work related when I laugh, because the general impression is that there is nothing funny in technical article.

Yesterday my colleague from the same team wore her headscarf in a different style. That morning, when I first saw her, I thought I didn’t know that person. Then I looked again, and looked hard and finally recognized her.

A couple hours later, she came to me, quietly asking me whether she looked that ugly that day. Because according to her, I stared at her weirdly that morning.

I then need to explain to her that I have problem recognizing people’s faces. Life with face blindness is hard

    It must be terribly difficult. There was another Beanie that mentioned she has face blindness when The Beauty Inside was airing in 2018.

Forest’s first 2 episodes is the longest hour of my drama-watching life. Everything is bad (except Oppa. Oppa is pretty as ever)

There should be a law that says famous oppas are not allowed to star in bad dramas, because that will cause the fans to have to suffer watching the said drama for the sake of oppa. Stop torturing the fans!

I love you PHJ, but life is too short. I don’t think I can continue watching Forest.

    I would sign that petition. I would sign it and give it to people on the street and make them sign it. I would forge signatures and create new identities . Oppas of the land you’ve gotta stop. You’ve just…for the sake of your long suffering fans, you just gotta stop.

    You’re lucky, you can walk out on Oppa like that! I can’t, we can’t, we’re bound by law @yyishere!

      Sigh. If only it were that easy. The Good Lord knows I was ready to throw in the towel (no offence, Oppa) by the end of Episode 2. But the Oppa Law is ingrained in me and @azzo1. Come hell, come hell fire (not poking fun at you, Oppa, cross my heart), we will bear it all for Oppa. *SMILES BRAVELY* *MAKES OPPA HEARTS*

I find myself really enjoying Love With Flaw, a drama that I did not have much interest at prior to watching the first episode.

While I am at the topic of bad (potential) boss, I have to say that I’d totally want Chief Yang from Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung to be my boss.

He started the drama like the typical sexist and bullying boss, but surprise, surprise, he turned out to be a boss who really stand up for his team and more importantly, very firm about the integrity of his job (as evidenced when it angered him that a historian dared to change the historical record for their own gain)

I went to job interview for a job that I didn’t want last week. The interviewer, upon hearing that I am not married, said “Then family won’t be a problem”.

The interviewer thinks that because I am not married, they can ask me to work long hours and I won’t be able to say no.

Now I understand why Nam Se Hee said that he had to go home to feed his cat.

    Yep, I’ve been there. Apparently they don’t believe single people have lives.

      Yes, and we don’t mind working late everyday and weekends because laundry and other house chores will be taken care by the house elf

    I got the job i want and i still suffer “family matter has to wait” because im new in the company and single. Even a well needed 3 days break has to consider who left in the company first. Mind you, 3 days is the longest break i’ve taken so far. Seems like every company tradition to treat single person like us like this.

    I’m sorry that you went through this. It’s unfair and that interviewer sounds like a real piece of work.

    I wonder if you’re able to decline to disclose that information in future interviews?

      I live in a country where the interviewer can shamelessly ask me to show them my latest 3 months payslip. So question about marital status, and other private info is unavoidable at all.

        How annoying. I hope you find a job at a place where you’re respected just as much as everyone else, married or not. Hwaiting!

I have just learned that Macro in Memories of Alhambra and Baek Kyung in Extraordinary You are portrayed by the same actor.

I think my brain freezed

    How soon till he starts chasing Ha-roo ?

      He probably has already started. Remember the scene in episode 1 when she started to have realization after Joo Da crashed into Nam Jum? Those quickly changing scenes, they are the bugs. So she has been infected

    He’s also the makjang actor in WWW. Sooooo versatile. Hehe

      He looked so short in Memories of Alhambra but now he’s suddenly ridiculously tall in Extraordinary You.

      Yes. He’s versatile, I never expected he’s the same person

I was almost disappointed that Almost Paradise is not the background song in Extraordinary You episode 1 when the A3 strutted into the school hall.

We need Almost Paradise in the background to complete the cliche

I ship Dan Oh and Baek Kyung in Extraordinary You.

I hope this is the OTP so that I won’t be burned alive by this ship.

Dear @mary ,

Can I suggest Dramabeans to add reCAPTCHA on Signup page? That way we can prevent those bot spammers from creating accounts.

I’ve never hated Netflix as much as I do right now.

There had better be a season 2 of Love Alarm. Or there will be bloody murder. Very bloody murder

    srsly. we should all just start protesting these half-series they post (in disguise as “season 1” and “season 2”) by waiting until “season 2” is up as well.

      We should.

      And we thought having to wait a week for the next episode is bad enough…

    Glad I did not watch it yet. When I saw Season 1 on the title! Huh! Seems like My First First Love.XD

      I didn’t realize the ‘Season 1’ thing when I started watching the drama. I even marathon-ed (work? What work?) to the last episode, because I thought it was really the last episode.

      So imagine my reaction when I saw the scene freezo and credits started rolling. Suffice to say, my reaction was the same as my reaction for Moon Lover’s ending.

        Very disappointed then hahaha Omg That kind of last scene will really make watchers angry 😂😂😂
