Beanie level: Loan shark with a heart of gold

It took me a few episodes to get into it, but show lived up to its name…
I’m going to miss the smooth Man from Joseon who laughs like a chipmunk. 😂

@peony I think you might enjoy this. It’s my favourite OST from BALLAD OF SEODONG
(which I still haven’t finished – 4 episodes to go!)

    Ayyo Toki I’m so sorry once again DB email didn’t get send and I’m only seeing this now. Maybe I should readjust my settings.☹️
    My, what a lovely song!😍 It reminds me of Honey Lee’s “Which Way” from Rebel. Thank you! I haven’t heard this one before, only the “Ballad of Seodong” itself. The children’s choir one. It’s so fun. “Aigoo the moon witnessed the prince visiting the princess at night. What to do…” lol.
    Didn’t watch the drama tho. Heard it’s good. After all it’s from DJG PD😁

      Btw Toki do you watch Chinese Historicals? I just started. I know you don’t like misty-magicky Xianxia genre but do you mind Wuxia? It has bit of flying martial arts is all. If you don’t like that either there are non-wuxia/pure historical ones too. I really enjoyed Joy of Life🙃.

        @peony sorry for the delay in replying. I was time-travelling with Kim Nam-gil in Joseon (I wish…) and missed your messenger pigeon.

        I’ve watched a few Chinese dramas:
        – Scarlet Heart, the original
        – Prince of Lan Ling
        – Princess Weiyoung
        – Nirvana in Fire 1 & 2

        I tried a few others but couldn’t get into them. I will look up JOY OF LIFE. Thank you!

Lol that ending. How can I feel nothing about the epic romance? I’m just upset on Shin-jae’s behalf.

But whatever. It’s over. See you in a better drama Kim Kyung-nam and Woo Do-hwan!

Unbreakable Beanies @kiara @ndlessjoie @mei123db @katakwasabi @flyingcolours @noone @muggleping @bluecouchpotato @imperialtitus and any others I forgot to tag… how about one last hurrah?

How do you think the drama will end? Who will die and who will survive? Which PPL will be crowned king? Will we find out who Solitude is?

    Personally, I think Gon’s second trip to the past will go disastrously. Woo Do-Hwan will be shot (again). The leads will be separated forever. We will cry. TIME SKIP. Happy ending in 2022.

    Also tagging @yyishere and @lordcobol. This wouldn’t be fun without you two.

      @wishfultoki Employing the last of my brain cells, the final battle results in heartbreak – they manage the hard reset, but 2020Gon is seriously injured. Borrowing the ending of Mallory’s King Arthur, Gon commands Yeong to bring Tae-eul back to ROK, and is now tasked as custodian of both the Manpasikjeok and the Four Tiger Sword. Yeong makes a blood sacrifice to open the portal one last time to do just that, before destroying BOTH the flute and the portal.

      Fate intervenes in answer to Tae-eul’s prayer and as a gift to Gon’s selfless act of redemption. Gon somehow survived, and manages to return to present time, and we are treated to a Return of the King and a happy ending.😓😓😓

      No Woo Do Hwans are permitted to die!

      Luna and Gon must be together (because I just don’t care what happens anymore, it would make me laugh the hardest, and I want to add more Beanies to this ship).

      It will end with all of us wondering why we watched the whole thing and why Yoyo Boy/Girl was a character.

      Multi-purpose balm for the win!

      LT is solitude (because she’s refusing to watch @leetennant). @yyishere

    As for the PPL King, it *has* to be the kimchi, the portal-crossing kimchi, those trusty packets of tasty goodness that double as a raft for whatever ship you want to float 😉

    Toki can I phone a friend? I have no brain cell left. I’m 50/50 on survival rate for Yeong-ah.
    I spaced out when time travel starts because I don’t care what they do there unless this is star wars.
    Whatever happens to Yeong-ah, I just want it to make sense. That’s all.
    Re-watching this show depends on it. I can’t re-watch MY COUNTRY so this better be it for me.

      I think we’re owed a happy ending for WDHx2 after our Stabby OTP ending.

        This won’t happen of course, but if both WDHs die, they can be *checks tropes list* reincarnated as twin brothers.

    PPL- Name is Yeong, Jo Yeong!
    My favorite is still Yeong-ah transforming into James Bond in Nari’s Aston Martin.

    I volunteer as the driver’s seat belt lol.

    Second loop goes badly. TE, after visiting Division Chief a couple of times as Solitude, disappears and hides in KoC under the name Luna (still holding on to that idea). Gon, believing her dead, comes back in his fancy jacket to give early 2020TE flowers. Time skip to 2022. In 2022, grieving Gon remembers the laptop footage and finds Luna. Both manage to reopen the double gate and go into the past, where they meet Lady Noh. They stop Rim from being born, thus changing the future and their possibility of coming back to the present. They live a happy long life in the past Corea, where the war never happened and open a BBQ chicken shack. In the 2020 line, Nari finally starts dating Eunseob after he gives her some PPL jewelry, and Jangmi helps Shinjae get over TE with aromatherapy and PPL coffee drinks. In the Kingdom, Yeong protects the new king and hangs out with his new buddies, CuteBaldy and CoreaJangmi, the three enjoy wearing their Iron Man Masks while doing bromantic banter. The end

    I guess it will be a happy ending to the lead no matter what. I stand with my 1939 Haejong theory. The rest I will let it lay out.

    I am prepared to have my heart break the third time with My Ajusshi soon. It premiere in Netflix June 10.

If you’ve tagged me and I haven’t replied it’s because I’m in the middle of a FIERY PRIEST binge-watch. I’m posting a few highlights, but seriously all the episodes are highlights at this point.

This is a first. I listened to a whole playlist without having watching the drama. 😂

I’m already predisposed to like HP because of the band scenes I’ve seen on YouTube though.
