Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

I love the camaraderie of the Rowdy Hongs. They are a true family. But I fear what’s coming as I approach the last eleven episodes! :0

      LOL! I surprised myself. I figured I would only check out one or two episodes a day.

      Sometimes, I wish that I had been watching this show at the same time that the recaps were coming out. I think that I have a pretty decent understanding of what’s going on, but I know that the recaps can help to clear up some things. I plan on going back to a couple of recaps right now.

      And yes, I have been keeping an eye out on the wall for your thoughts and possible spoilers. I guess the fact that you haven’t watched any more episodes at this point explains things, lol! πŸ˜‰

      Happy watching!

      No, it’s five days. I work weekends and three weekdays. I’d have to be a superwoman to manage that. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the well-wishes!

Yesterday, I watched the first two episodes of Rebel: Thief who Stole the People. What a strong, loving family. Of course, in K-drama fashion, familial happiness does not last forever. Such strong, emotional acting, especially from Kim Sang-joong. And I must say that the young Gil-dong is so cute. I love the little actor’s expressions.

    I’ve watched until ep4 and then have to put it on hold (due to School 2017 and Tae Fever 😅), but I’m going to pick it up πŸ˜‰ , Kim Sang-joong did a great job πŸ™‚
    I might make some posts per episode in the next days /weeks, just avoid them if you don’t want to get spoilers 😅 .

      No problem! I already know some things that happen, so not everything will be a spoiler. πŸ˜‰

      I will try to watch at least an episode or two whenever I can. I am only watching one currently airing show at this point (Rescue Me), but I know that a new crop of dramas will be starting soon. I don’t want to be watching too much, lol!

    Ohh me too! I watched 2 episodes in the beginning and had to stop when things went down super fast. I needed to get some sleep before I got hooked. I need to pick this up sometime next week after I finish Falsify.

      I finally made the plunge and decided to start this drama. I heard so many good things about it. So far, I like what I see. I also love that the family unit that opens this drama does not belong to the upper class. We have a slave family at the heart of things, and from what I understand, there are no birth secrets. Adult Gil-dong even tells Yeonsangun at the beginning of the first episode that he is no nobleman’s son. That makes me happy, lol.

      As I am only watching one other drama right now (I dropped Reunited Worlds), I will try to make the most of the time available to me. πŸ˜‰

I checked out some bilingual Korean/English children\’s books! I haven\’t studied Korean in a while, but I thought it would be good practice. I might look over some YouTube videos. I won’t go back into studying it seriously at this point, but I do want to try to improve my pronunciation. I also picked up a Korean tale translated into Spanish.

The Servant (2010). I bought the DVD a couple of years ago. Of course, the disk had to be defective at the pivotal moment. LOL. I’ll have to watch that scene online, if I can.

    Hi @peridot I’ve been wanting to watch the Servant because of Kim Joo-hyuk. Was it good?

      I think that it is decent film (in terms of quality). It took a few viewings for me to appreciate it more. There are some nice emotional moments.

Yesterday, I re-watched the 1998 version of Wuthering Heights, starring Robert Cavanah and Orla Brady. πŸ™‚

    I love that book though I haven’t seen any of the movies. Everyone sees it as a tragic love story, but they honestly all had it coming. They were horrible people. I like the ending though with the do-over for the next generation though. πŸ™‚

      LOL! Yes, they were horrible people.

        The book was so difficult to get through because of how horrible they were. It was almost like psychological torture. I constantly wondered where the author would have gotten material for her story from… and I hoped it was not personal experience.

          Yes, I think that adaptations of this work have made the characters sympathetic in ways that the book definitely did not.

Hello, fellow Beanies. I have asked a similar question in the past, but I thought I would ask it again. Do any Beanies here actually buy DVDs of their favorite dramas? If so, may I ask where you buy them? I used to buy DVDs from YA Entertainment (now no longer around) via Amazon. I know that there are sites like YesAsia, but their items are a bit pricey and I’m not sure about product quality. I’m not a big techy person and have never downloaded dramas. Additionally, while I would like to re-watch and catch up to a few dramas, I do not like to spend too much time looking at a computer screen (I spend enough time already, especially at my job). My eyes are already bad, and the experience isn’t always the most enjoyable since I probably have the worst internet connection in the world. I also think some of these drama sites have made my computer slower, despite my current Ant-virus protection. LOL! I do make do with what I have, but I’m just wondering if there are any Beanies out there like me. Any suggestions? Thanks!

            Ok I’ll do and you can start the download and finish it later, so you don’t have to worry or keep an eye on the downloading process.
            And I’ll get down to the screen shot after I finish watching IIFA awards.
            You should download utorrent first, It’s not big in size. 😊😊
