      @sicarius was raving about them the other day after their appearance in Strongest Deliveryman and I’ve been on a (unsuccessful) mission to find them ever since 😕

    I’m going to try them tomorrow πŸ™‚ There’s supposed to be some at a grocery store 1.5 miles from me. Excited! I hope you find some Ra On Ah!

    In the USA there’s always one (or a few) Asian supermarkets/grocery stores in every state that take a bit of digging to find, but they guaranteed have them. And depending on the Asian diversity of where you live, you can find them in normal/regular grocery stores in the ice cream or “World” section. Their mango flavor is amazing too after the regular flavor of course 😋

      Thanks for the advice! I’ve been looking at normal grocery stores in the ice cream section. I’ll have to see if they have a world section or if there are any Asian supermarkets near me 🙂

        Also they sometimes sell them individually in the most understated packaging which is SO annoying to find! I hope you find them and love them as much as we all do πŸ™‚

          After all I’m going through to find them, I really hope I love them too 🙂

I took screenshots but then thought it would be better to just post the whole clip.
So here you go: the confession scene

Did I mention that this show is really pretty?

Hyung Kim: good at mysterious brooding, swordfighting, leaping tall buildings in a single bound, and… sewing?

    What?? Sewing??

    Did I actually miss something?! *alarmed tone* ……. I don’t remember any scene with him sewing!

    (perhaps I was too distracted by the pretty …… it’s perfectly understandable)

      It’s a very short scene in ep7. Ra On is making puppets and Hyung Kim ends up helping her.
      Obviously this means you need to rewatch the whole thing 😉

        A rewatch.

        This is what I’m beginning to think.

        *looks at schedule* ……. *sigh*

          If you just want to see this scene since you don’t have time for the whole thing, it is in ep 7 about 27 minutes in.

Finally got to see the movie A Taxi Driver and convinced my (non kdrama watching) family to go with me. Excellent movie. I highly recommend it.

    Yay!! It was an excellent film. So sad @earthna was unable to see it too! It’s not to be missed.

      I was kind of worried that my family wouldn’t like it but they all thought it was a great movie too. They were surprised to learn that Korea was under military dictatorship in the 80’s. Even though they are very well educated and like history, they don’t know much about Korean history.

        I am not sure how many people are aware of that part of their history. It was news to me until I started watching kdramas. And I love history! Most people know about the Korean war and all of that but not much more I think.

        I think it is a universal story. And is scarily relevant in this day and age. I think most people would like this film and for a foreign film has quite a bit of English.

          I didn’t know anything about Korea either (other than the Korean War) until I started watching kdramas. I know a lot more now but I’ve also realized how much more there is to learn. I would love to take a Korean history class but I don’t think there are any around where I live.

          Sometimes the English was harder to understand than reading subtitles! In the first scene with all the reporters, the subtitles were suddenly in Korean and I thought: “What’s wrong? Why am I not understanding this? Why are the subtitles in Korean? Ooooohh. They’re speaking English now.” But with their accents I was wishing I had subtitles instead.

          I agree that it is a universal story. Very inspiring.

            I wish my university had a Korean history class. It’s even hard to just find a decent Korean history book in my area. They’re all about the Korean war or they skip over the interesting parts and just talk about the archaeological finds and various historical sites.

            @crysta I’m actually thinking about petitioning my school to offer at least a Korean language class. Maybe if you can find people who are interested in taking a course in Korean history you could convince your school to offer it.
            Until then, we can get our historical information from dramas and dramabeans 🙂

    In my former office we have a korean restaurant that sells Melona everyday so its 😍 whenever I feel stressed at work I go down and eat 3 diff flavors 😂 and wasn’t (much of) a kdrama fan just really loved the taste 😋
    Now I’m craving 😅

      Haha 😀 Did you base your name on melona bars?

        Yes I got my username from the melona bars. Because people call me Mel in real life, so I just try to find the closest Korean thing that resembles my name. It also helps that they’re delicious and I love them.

My all time favorite mane of glory.
Stupid question: was this a wig or did Kwak Dong Yeon actually grow his hair out?
I’m assuming it’s a wig but I don’t really know.

How can he smile so prettily while threatening someone?

Kim Yoo Jung is adorable. I love how she scrunches up her nose when she smiles.
