Beanie level: Noble idiot

Peaking in Beanies! Still have to catch up on pretty much everything, so avoiding the Beanie wall for the moment. I hope everyone’s been doing well!

All right Beanies,

Life is taking over, as life does. I will be out of town for a couple of weeks (with next to zero access to internet) and once I get back to town, some major moving is happening (oh the joys of moving). This means my life will consists of no dramas for the next 3-4 weeks. I hope to finish up WWWSK, LoM; catch up with Mr.Sunshine and start Life – once life (hah) gets back on track. You’ll have to excuse my delayed posts about episode reactions and comments on your posts that I’ll go back and read. In the meanwhile let me know if I miss any good new dramas while I’m gone. I hope life treats everyone well!

Happy Drama Watching!

Dude, Life on Mars is mind scrambling but I don’t want to go back to Earth

Watching Let’s Eat 2 episode where they’re eating Indian food and all I can think about is – that’s not how you eat it! I mean sure you can technically eat it any way you want to. It’s really all about how you enjoy your food, and there is no right way to eat it. BUT – why would you put Kofta gravy (cream based gravy – usually eaten with some sort of bread, usually naan or plain rice) on biryani (spiced rice)? I worship biryani and consider this sacrilegious. Why would you put daal (lentil) on your spice roasted meat(chicken? I wouldn’t know) on skewer, when it comes with its own sauces for you to dip in to enhance the flavors? color me baffled. Also Naan to subzi/daal ratio also confused me but that could just be my personal preference.

    Haha there obviously needs to be an Indian Let’s eat series!

    To clarify – the briyani looking thing could’ve just been rice with saffron or just plain spiced rice as it didn’t display other biryani traits so I could be in the wrong here

    Even though I’m a vegetarian, I’m from Lucknow so I cannot bear the wrong way of eating biryani

WOAH. DB is recapping Let’s Eat 3! I need to finish watching 2, before I can pick up 3 but I’m so excited about all the food galore!

    Yayyy! That’s what I’m watching tonight. I’m assuming it’ll be full recaps. Or at least I hope so. They did not do full recaps of the previous seasons. o:

I’m on the 3rd episode of Mr. Sunshine and I’m…bored. The transitions seem so choppy. There is no flow to the plot and I cannot connect to the main couple. I’ll stick around for a few more episodes and hope it gets better but so far – it’s meh.

    agree with you, the plot didn’t flow very well. it’s like watching a video clip. I’m afraid the director focused more on taking beautiful pictures than creating a story.

I’ll admit most of EP 12 for WWWSK was fluff but damn – those last 15 minutes made up for the whole episode! PSJ is λŒ€λ°•

    Sometimes I forget how good of an actor he is. Then he does emotional stuff like this and I’m like, Dayum, he’s next-level caliber.

The kids in WWWSK are just too darn cute! Especially the little boy!

    The kid playing young Young-joon is amazing. His voice is also so low for a child’s that I can’t help but think, whenever he talks, that when he hits puberty his voice is going to drop to his shoes!

Dear Dramagods,

Please, for the love of all that is holy and sacred in dramaland, don’t let dad be as guilty as he seemed to us in that episode. My heart breaks for little Te-ju, grown up Te-ju and the viewers. There has to be a reason behind it. Also Dramagods, why oh why would you put a son through a cycle like that? That’s just cruel. Not cool.

Sincerely,

A Viewer on the Edge of Her Seat

Current Watch Status

WWWSK: Ep 10 (OMG the cuteness!)

Life on Mars: Ep 6 (I love this show! Yes, I know I need to catch up before the weekend.)

Mr. Sunshine: Ep 2 (Holy crap the cinematography!)

Guys, This is the first time I’m not only watching 3 shows at the same time but live watching them!

    I’m watching 4 currently airing shows. I don’t think this has ever happened to me before. I also know that once my college schedule picks back up in late August I won’t be live-watching anything for a long time!

    Haha, this was only because I had 3 days to myself including the weekend last week. This week seems to be a different story

ALSO – next time I hesitate to start a drama that is clearly unmissable – someone please shake me up. HOW did I not start watching LoM when it started? This show is something else…

FINALLY!!! *squeeee* sorry beanies, I had to let the excitement out somewhere. Cannot WAIT for the subs for WWWSK Ep 10 to come out.

Dang it! I was going to hold out until Life on Mars was finished before binging it, but seems like the live-watching bug has taken root and now I feel like I’m not getting the full effect if I’m not live watching and discussing it with beanies. (Honestly, just having some drama FOMO)

I miss the days when I didn’t live-watch and enjoyed a normal drama watching life (if such a thing exists)

Who am I kidding? No, I don’t. I love live watching. I hate the wait, anitcipation, and the frustration. But I love the live discussions and theories even more.

Here I go beanies – EP 1 of LoM

When I first saw Namgoong Min in Chief Kim he strongly reminded me of Jung Yong Hwa of CNBlue. YES I know Namgoong Min is a WAY better actor than JYH (sorry boo, you’re pretty and I like your music but your acting could use some help). I\’ve seen his stills from Falsify and there he looks completely different. But then the stills from Undatables/ Hnadsome Guy put me back in the same mindset as Chief Kim and I CAN’T SHAKE IT OFF. Rant over.

    MAN.

    I usually roll my eyes at nobal idiocy but I wanted to shake YJ for his denial to KMS. Just no. I wish the whole misunderstanding of the past cleared up and our OTP in WWWSK being all pretty and smoochy because they like the people they are today, not JUST because of the past. I want to FF the next two episodes and get to the ones where they clear their issues out. Also, I hope it’s the mom that straighten the hyung out. UGH he makes me want to smack him even though he’s so pretty.

To all the beanies more aware and educated than I,

I would like to request a sort of a compilation of nicknames frequently used for our drama heroes. The only ones I’ve seen recently are this:

Park Hyung Sik: Puppy
Seo Kang Joon: Cinnamon Roll

Who else?

But I think EP 10 might be our turning point? I\’m drawing parallels here between She Was Pretty and WWWSK – too much? ya know mistaken identities and all? only PSJ is on the receiving end of it this time around. Am I overthinking this? I think I’m too into the kdrama world in and need to go out and do something in RL, lol
