Beanie level: Eunuch in drag

LOL guys the TOD made its appearance in Dinner Mate but it got the wrong person. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’m so done with JH btw.

    Have just finished the ep and have to go to fan wall to find a venting friend, like, OMG, the dramagods who are in charge of TOD deserve a flogging!

      You had one job TOD! Well I guess this is what happens when you get the car of doom and not the MVP TOD.

Episode 13 of Dinner Mate was actually a lot better than I expected. I like the pace in which events are unfolding. JH breaking down in front of Keanu was my favorite scene just because of LJH’s acting. And this is definitely the best I’ve seen of SSH. HK’s struggle at staying calm and failing in the initial clinic scene was very well done.

    I agree! I was so worried last week (in a good way though – I love this show!), but I’m glad things turned out better than they could have.

    I agree, LJH is amazing in this show. I actually don’t know who I like more in this show – LJH or SJH. They’re both great and so talented. I love that about this show.

    Never watched SSH in anything else, but I think he’s done well overall. I feel like the only scene in the entire drama so far that I’ve thought his acting was weak in was this episode when he was crying, which was okay for the most part except the very end, when I thought it felt a bit contrived.

      Yeah, I think crying scenes aren’t his strength. I liked him in The Great Show too but his crying scene there really had me thinking, oh, he’s acting. His crying scenes were better in DM though than TGS. Baby steps I suppose.

      I’ve only seen LJH in Your Househelper as a dorky lawyer that’s head over heels one of the girls. He was funny there but I never imagined he had such acting range.

    It was better than expected, really? Does this mean no nobel idiocy or angst fest? I wasn’t really planning to watch this week’s epsiode until final week’s were out because otherwise I thought that this week’s epsiode would frustrate me. But if you are saying they were better than expected I might just watch’em..

      It didn’t feel like noble idiocy to me. I thought I’d be frustrated with this episode too but it didn’t play out how I thought it would. The angst is kept to a minimal.

Hey beanies, this is really random but I’m looking for suggestions for taming my hair. I’ve tried so many products and I can’t find THE product for my hair. You see my hair is thick and I have a lot of it and it tries to be wavy. Tries. Well to he fair when it’s wet it is wavy and I’d love to find a way to keep it that way. But once it air drys it doubles in size and loses its shape. Blow dryers are it’s worse enemy. Some days I wake up and the first thing I think of is Seol’s hair being called dog fur in CITT. Not that her hair was dog fur like tbh.

Any suggestions? The best I’ve found so far is some cocunut hair butter but it’s still not quite there yet. I’m convinced there has to be a product(s) out there for my hair type but I can’t find it. All these internet reviews have me going in circles. Really, I’m open to any suggestions. 😩 My poor hair can’t stand being straightened so much in the long run.

    I have a curly hair. The only way I get to tame it down is by applying mouse. I apply Alberto Mega Hold #5 on my damp hair after combing it. I would want to show you what my hair looks like, but I don’t want to post my picture on a public website. Maybe if you have discord or twitter or something, I can send you a dm of what mine looks like if you’re interested.

    Anyways here is the product I use. I know they say mousse is bad for daily use but I don’t care. This is my holy grail

    Good luck finding the product that your hair will like!

    Interesting question. I have thick coarse hair that I can’t keep long. Since I’ve been isolating from home I’ve been keeping my hair thinned out with a pair of thinning shears. Got them on Amazon for about 10$ i think.
    God knows I’d love to have thick curly hair, but I found for me the best control was to thin some of it out. Do you have someone to do that for you?

      I actually discovered thinning my hair out a few years ago and it was a huge help. I’m not going to hair salons right now either so I get anyone around the house to do it for me. 😏

        You can buy a pair of thinning shears on Amazon. But I warn you – it’s kind of addictive and fun to thin your hair. It might help you for the time being.

    How many times a week do you apply conditioner? I used to have voluminous hair as well, and not in a sexy glamorous kind of way. So I opted for a neat straight cut instead of layers and I apply conditioner every single time I wash my hair. Neat cut makes the hair more organized and conditioner softens it, for me at least. It took me around 1 year to get it under control. I still use hair curler or straightener when I want to style my hair, but I could go to work without having a dent in my confidence with my untouched hair. I keep it medium length. Hope it might help you 🙂

      You know I’ve been debating the layers in my hair. I always figured layers would help my waves but recently I’ve started to wonder if it’s counterproductive. What with smaller strands of hair it may create more volume? Idk but it’s going to take a while to grow my layers out. I shampoo and condition every other day…I hope that’s enough.

        For my hair layers are counterproductive. Because it makes the strands curl wildly. But it really depends on the hair. I washes my hair almost everyday, maybe the frequency helps. Hope you find solutions soon.

    I have wavy/curly hair. I never ever brush it when dry only in the shower with conditioner and only with fingers, wide tooth comb, or a denman brush.
    Lately I’ve been combing the canopy of the hair out separately then the underneath.
    I flip my hair over as I rinse the conditioner out. Scrunch excess water out with my hands and then lightly smooth style, usually gel sometimes over another leave in, then scrunch again.
    I plop it in an old tee or microfiber towel as I finish getting ready. Then let it air dry.
    It’s not perfect but I’m pretty happy with it.

      I should really try the tee technique, even if my family looks at me quizzically lol. I’ve seen it on YouTube so much but I’ve never actually given it a try.

        With plopping I’m never as precise as what they do on YouTube but I like the results.
        I havent watched this video, but because I’ve watched some of her content I was rec’d it the other day. Maybe something you can use.

    Hey so I don’t have thick or wavy hairs but other ppl close to me do. There’s this “curly girl” method aka cg that ppl with thick Friday, wavy hair are following and omg their hair are legit goals. They look so pretty and their hair have this perfect shape (rings) and aren’t frizzy. From what I know there is a lot of content regarding this online so you will easily find the details. Ser if this helps 🙂

    When I was in the states there was this product from FX called Curls Up and it worked perfectly. It worked magic I even made it ship to Europe afterwards. Now I use ricinus oil or nothing, because I chopped them off again;-) I have really thick hair and every time I cut them really short (6mm) they became curlier.

Dinner Mate is finished filming which I guess is a good thing as it means they knew what they wanted their story to be. And they weren’t filming scenes last minute. It’s sad seeing them at their wrap up party so soon though!

On the other hand, there are bts pictures of their last few filming sites on IG in case anyone wants to be mildly spoiled. Please have a good ending show. Can we finish with the exes this coming week and have cute for the finale week, please?

I’ve just about had it with No Eul. Jae Hyuk is off the rails and needs professional help asap. I don’t like him one bit nor sympathize with him. His mental illness is no excuse for how he’s treating and manipulating Do Hee.

But No Eul. GOSH Jin No Eul…she makes my blood boil. Girl, don’t you have something better to do. Find yourself a new hobby, adopt a pet, grow a garden idk but get a life. *eye roll* Thank goodness HK (and DH) are having none of it and sticking together.

    You know I have nothing against idols going into acting IF they have the talent for it. Take Junho, for example. He started off in secondary roles and worked his way up. You can see his passion for it too with how he expresses himself regarding the craft. And here we are in 2020 and I’m still not over his Kang Do in JBL. Some people either just have an innate talent or learn the craft through arduous work.

    But idols who have no acting chops whatsoever just rub me the wrong way. They not only take away opportunities for other actors but they also take away from the drama/movie.

    Lee Ji Hoon’s character is horrible but I enjoy watching how he brings Jae Hyuk to life. The nuances he portrays him with. But an annoying Na Eul + lacking skills in the acting department are not a good combination.

    I have nothing against Naeun. Really, I don’t. I’m not an APink fan but I’ve always thought of them as a respectable senior group. But acting is just not for her. Maybe smaller roles where she’s not sulking might fit her better? She seems a teeeeensy tad better in the flashbacks with HK where she’s smiling. I don’t know. Look, I wish her the best but sometimes you just gotta stick with what you’re good at.

      Totally agree with you, and you’ve made the perfect example with Junho.
      But this woman can’t act. I mean, I don’t even find her pretty (and she is!!) because she’s so bland, expressionless and bad actress…

      1

      We should also blame the people who cast them. I want to believe Na Eun works hard too, but maybe there’s just a ceiling she can’t break through, and directors shouldn’t cast her (or other idols like her) until she proves herself more.

      1
      1

        Very true. Or maybe her company is the one pushing her to do it? Smaller roles would definitely help though, less lines to memorize so it would allow newbie actors/actresses more time to perfect their craft.

Hae Kyung has such swoon worthy confessions, by the way. I’m unashamed to admit I watched the episode ending three times.

Also, was it just me or was that dinner scene at the beginning of the episode one of those scenes that loses meaning in translation? I understood most of it without subs and I felt like they really played around with the dialogue. Idk I just felt like the subs weren’t as fun as what they were saying.

Do Hee telling Jae Hyuk she was happy with him when he had nothing and now she was happy without him, yesss! And that slap! Not that it gets through to him though.

Very pretty people on the beanie wall but I can’t get over Dinner Mate. Especially this scene, literally made my day when I watched the episode. I do this too…but with my poor pets! 😂 Never had I felt so in touch with a kdrama scene.

Woo Do Hee has such spunk. I love love love her. Matter of fact, I\’m completely addicted to this show that I binged all 8 episodes in 3 days. Do I roll my eyes every time the exes are on screen? Yes! But the leads more than make up for it. These slow-burn OTPs are officially my new favorite thing.

I\’m back btw from my quarantine. Back at work. Still rather concerned as our county has had a huge increase in covid cases but well what can we do? Had a bad depression episode during quarantine but thankfully I feel better. Just have to focus on the good things in life. Glad to see beanies still as active as ever here. ❤

I\’m kind of joining the My Mister rewatch. Interesting how Dong Hoon didn\’t immediately turn Ji An in when he was being questioned by the auditing team regarding the bribe. He said he was almost 100% sure Ji An took the money but he didn\’t turn her in. Most, if not all, people would do so immediately in hope of proving one\’s innocence. Great insight into Dong Hoon\’s character so early on in the drama.

        This. I’m still waiting for Park Hae Young’s next show. In fact I also went back to rewatch OHYA to see if she has been equally introspective there too even if OHYA was covered in rom com sugar, it had its moments too. With a different director, it would’ve been quite different.

          Plus “Intricate” is THE word for it. Every small detail, every gesture, every dialogue is well observed and thought. This pd writer duo should definitely work together again.

            @wapzy I’m also waiting lol but I’m afraid My Mister may have been one of those one time gems. Of course, I’m up for being proved wrong.

          Park Hae Young was on the writing team of I Live In Cheongdam Dong which is among my all time favorites. It’s a sitcom but full of humility with each episode packed with laughters and tears in equal measure. It has a niche following but not all episodes have Eng sub that makes it less accessible for the international audience. But you should be able to search articles written by its fans.

        I wonder how many flow charts or other devices to build the intricacy. Although there’s are a few dramas touch on drama writer and their team’s works. It’d be fascinating to see one detail how they build a story up and cast the crew.

    I truly disliked the second male lead character. This Prosopagnosia trend has started to get infuriating for me, and in this particular case was really dumb. If only I could wipe him completely from the show I liked the rest of it a lot.

      @midnight I love Kim Seon Ho so I enjoy his scenes if only to see him on my screen. But objectively I don’t understand his role, they could have done so much with him. He’s a really random character where he doesn’t do much to be deemed a second lead but he has little scenes sprinkled everywhere. But I’m still on episode 10 so maybe he’ll confuse me more. 🤷‍♀️

        That’s it. His character is completely random with no purpose. They could have just made him a well-to-do country boy who liked the fl and had never seen the king.

          Or they could have gotten rid of his prospognasia and when he got to the village he could have been the key to finding the prince. Alas, prospognasia it is.

I did finish Cunning Single Lady by the way and let me just say the Gook siblings were crazy. For 3/4 of the drama the good stuff made up for its shortcomings but then the crazy was unleashed. I can\’t remember the last time second leads made me want to pull my hair out or want to slap them into reason. It was an interesting premise but it just crashed and burned. The only thing I somewhat enjoyed in the end was nerdy Jung Woo having a backbone, something Ae Ra seemed to lose along the way.

And I still don\’t understand the Tijuana wedding with black cars chasing them and then the impending truck of doom causing Yeo Jin to lose her husband and a leg. 🤷‍♀️

I had a kdrama reality check where I told myself I had to stop watching so many dramas at the same time. I started 3 shows last week and kept adding more to my To Watch list. So I\’ll finish what I started.

100 Days My Prince it is for now. I started only for Kim Seon Ho but the story is interesting. The balance between the cute and serious elements is really working for me so far.

I must admit though…how many times do we have to see the nurse being killed with the arrow!? Show, I get it, really.
