Beanie level: Errand boy

Petition to have Dramabeans upload their old podcasts on Spotify/Apple Podcasts/all other podcast platforms. Just to have it all in one place so I can binge again and again and again. 🥺

    I have been in that town once. It was a lovely town. I went there during my exchange year as I heard it had one of the best theme parks around.

    I just watched the first episode and thought it was… Really bad. It made me laugh when it definitely shouldn’t have, lol!

    Everyone knows that Jin Se-yeon is very pretty and has a nice voice but can’t act, but the men aren’t exactly inspiring in this, either. It doesn’t help that the script is super cheesy.

    But, well, your mileage may vary!

      Mindy T_T Then I guess Lee Soohyuk can never really choose dramas I’d be able to stand huh…

      I doubt I’ll have a different reaction as you. “So bad it makes me laugh” is a legitimate reaction from me too. HahaHUHU

      Thanks for the input!

    I haven’t finished first episode, but… well, as Mindy said, it was pretty bad: the acting, the story. I don’t think it’s getting any better.

      When people as enthusiastic as us about kdramas say it’s “pretty bad” then good lord there really isn’t gonna be a saving grace in this one, I guess. Thanks for the input!

so glad that the last two episodes of hi bye mama got back on track with making me cry and feel so much. overall, i love how this was my cathartic drama, letting me cry every week.

i don’t know if it was the break but eps 13 and 14 for hi bye mama felt draggy. this drama would have been better off with a 12-ep setup like go back couple, me thinks. final stretch incoming!!

    Apparently I’m not the only one who think it’s been very draggy this week. And it’s really not helping that everyone is busy crying.

      YES! everyone’s crying and I felt like these events should have happened the previous week or something? Like Yuri wanting to live? I mean, we only have two episodes left. Too bad that it felt draggy too because it was supposedly the peak of the emotional conflicts all around.

    It also happened to me. I’m usually crying on every episode, and I feel the character’s pain, but in these two episodes I was like: oh, look, they’re crying… AGAIN. I also blamed it on the break up, like if I got distanced from the show.

    2
    1

      Same!!! Eps 13-14 didn’t make me cry, which was surprising because I’ve been crying this entire drama. It’s my catharsis drama, lets me cry and all that. This time around I was like: oh no, poor Minjeong. And that was it. Even when they showed what really happened on Ganghwa’s side when Yuri had her accident, I was like: shit, that must have hurt so bad. But I wasn’t ~feeling their emotions or what.

another kdrama done in around 36 hours… another one lined up. gotta reap off the perks of being self-employed/in business now…

i’m almost done with BE MELODRAMATIC and can someone recommend me a kdrama to watch on netflix. preferably something contemporary and fluffy (but would love if it can make me cry sometimes too)

finally watching BE MELODRAMATIC and will gong myung ever graduate from puppy roles? only time will tell (and the next drama he’ll be in)

so basically i’ve gone from extremes in my weekend kdrama watching. from the super fluffy CLOY, i’m now at the heartwrenchingly bittersweet HI BYE MAMA. but it feels so good to be back on watching kdramas since i’ve been bad at it for so long. i also binged the secret life of my secretary last week within 24 hours and had so much fun

    SLOMS is an absolute gem! I can’t believe you saw it all in a 24 hour period! I’m watching Hi, Bye Mama as well! It’s making me a wreck, especially after last episode with the little boy ghost’s story! I was bawling!

      Ally, I cried so much at episode 4, starting with that scene of that cute little boy apparently just waiting for his mom every single day. I get teary-eyed everytime I remember it. I hope the drama is full of more amazing scenes and storytelling like it even if it breaks my heart.

      As for TSLOMS, ohmygod, I couldn’t stop doing a Veronica Park impersonation. That was a one of a kind role and Kim Jaekyung made the character so lovable when she could have easily made the character an irritating dimwit. Ugh, I love her so much and everyone in that drama. As for binging it in 24 hours… well… I couldn’t stop watching until my mom turned off the wifi at 5am and told me to sleep HAHAHA

    When she pulled her heart fingers out of her sweater and he looked so nonplussed…

    Then talking with his squad mates as to what it could me. Her heart – her ‘organ’? She wants to give you her ‘organ’? Ah, her heart? Oh that slyly pleased look on his face was so perfect.

    This is a show I’ll probably watch again between weekends just to see how they are reacting and NOT reacting to each other…

        I’ve missed seeing you around! The pink piggy always puts a smile on my face!

        The show is ridiculous and it knows it so far. I doubt it can keep it up for 16 episodes, to be honest, but I’m enjoying it while it lasts! LOVE Sohn Ye-jin!

    I am! Well, I still have 25 mins left to watch on ep 2, but plan to be caught up tonight.

    So far it’s firing on all cylinders – I’m low-key looking forward to seeing what kind of adventure we’re about to get ourselves into. Loving the leads thus far and definitely grinning at all the great supporting characters. w00t!

hypothetically speaking… if someone started a recap to submit back when the call for minions was up but only had time to finish it now… what should that someone do with it 😂
