      You’re on chatting terms with FB? Are you…gonna be running in new circles in the not-too-distant? Perhaps? 🙂

        Well that remains to be seen, of course. XD

    My thoughts on this episode:
    -To be fair to the president, Jesus Christ Superstar is an awesome movie. lol
    -Korea must love their 70’s David Bowie. Lot of androgyny in their pop.
    -He can’t close his eyes?! So he’s Patrick!(Ref. 1978 Australian Horror movie. It’s really good)

    Alright, it begins. *cracks knuckles* Let’s do this…THOUGHT TIME!

    Another live action City Hunter. It may not have the awesomeness of Jackie Chan dressed up as Chun Li, but I’m down.
    Ok, who would be down for an episode of Jem and the Holograms having to work at a nunnery…monastary…whatever for a charitable concert. Anyone?
    And suddenly, penis.
    Creepy guy following a virgin girl in the secluded countryside…I see enough hentai to know where this is going.
    Gemma don’t messed around. She don’t shiv, yo!
    There is a song called “Why so Serious” and it does not pertain to the Joker? Color me shocked and awed.
    Anyone getting Sailor Stars vibe from all this….anyone?
    Did God just hooked Gemma up with some talent he had laying around. Well then, Good Guy God.
    Chocobo Farm music, YES!
    Just comes to show you, no matter where in the world you are, kids are assholes.
    FTR, my money is that the whole thing about her brother having surgery and healing is a RUSSO LEVEL SWERVE! and the manager is secretly their father.
    You may laugh but bedels are very comforting….not that I know anything about that. MOVING ON
    Just like I never had a drunk Asian lady grab my junk out of nowhere…And I’m shutting up now.

    This episode have a lot of promise. So I guess I’m a Beautie now. Ready to strap in and see where this roller coaster leads.

      +1 for Jackie Chen as Chun Li reference.

      Jerrica Benton ran an orphanage, so that might be close enough.

      Good theory on the manager (or at least the guy who came to get her).

      • Jay_Bay

        No prob Tia. Tell Robie I said hello.

        • TiakerAvelonna

          Robie? Oo

          • Jay_Bay

            Nevermind. Oh look, cookies.

    I called Tae-Kyung for the love interest as soon as you said he was the lead singer. ‘Cuz chicks r predictable, m i rite? Please tell me I’m am wrong. Please tell me this series throws us just ONE curveball?

    Koreans play baseball. A baseball analogy works here.

    Wait….first the other four don’t not recognize that their fifth member – who totally looks and sounds like himself in every way – is acting strange, then who sings a very religious (Papist-wise) song….then they just all go to an airport….without the fifth member, so they can awkwardly run into him anyway….except he’s is inexplicably dressed like a sexy nun. I mean, a nun.

    Is FFVII a timeless reference or hipster-retro now?

    Ooooh, a RHODIUM silver crucifix charm, by appearances. Perfect for the gothic-or-just-rich nun in your life.

    Ohhhhh…she was grabbing her booooobs. I thought she was maybe referring to something else….that would actually kinda make sense. Perverted sense.

    OK, the dramatic group pose at 16:45 is win.

    Wait, young lady, just how did you bypass that Abbey Road reference so quickly?

    I’ll will be watching. This is starting off even more promising than the last, if that’s is not too heretical-sounding.

    EDIT: Awww….you fixed the typo. Now my low-key bitchiness will mean nothing to future generations. >:(

    • Magdalen

      Retro-hipster or not, I love me some chocobos.

  • Hitchmeister

    I went to high school with brother/sister twins who looked as much like each other as any identical twins I’ve ever seen. Presumably they were not identical, but strong family resemblance combined with 1970s hair styles (they both had long, perfectly straight, center-parted hair that hung down to the middle of their backs) made them look as close to the same as possible.

    I say presumably because it is possible for accidents in infancy and gender reassignment drugs to result in an individual growing up as a gender that doesn’t match their genetics. Although that’s very rare and seriously doubt it was the case here.

    • Cheshire Cat

      I also went to school with brother/sister twins that were scary identical.

  • Dani(elle)

    I dont care if shin woo is a hipster, I still like him more than emo hair. (Yes I know the character’s name but he has always been emo hair to me, even when he changes it)

    • Magdalen

      The factions have begun to form. *rubs hands together*

      • Muthsarah

        You are Eris personified!

        • Magdalen

          Yes, yeees chaos and discord MUAHAHAHA!

      • Jay_Bay

        The divisions can share the very foundations of the fandom. May the Gods have mercy on us all.

    I watched this through on Netflix some time ago. I quite adore it. I watched it around the time I watched Pasta, which I also adore (different merits, mind you). Where You Are Beautiful is concerned it’s a lovely combination of corny, adorable and legitimately fun tied in with proper amounts of drama. I don’t even care whether it’s possible for her to look that much like her brother, I dropped my expectations of realism at the door around the statue scene.

    Tae-Kyung is awesome when he barges in, and by the time the doves were flying when she sang I’d just completely submerged myself in the corny nature of the story. Not to say it can’t hit legitimate dramatic tones, it does later on at several points, it’s not all corny. A lot of it is corny. A lot. Even the supposedly dramatic stuff. I don’t even care. I love it. Thanks to you have have to rewatch this now.

    The chase scene is only improved with Chocobo music.

  • My knowledge of Korean culture is limited to some of their foods I had in Korean restaurants and a few different manhwa I have read over the years.

    • Magdalen

      I hope you keep tuning in! I bet you’ll learn more. :3

      • I sure will, I’m a sucker for gender-bender stories both M2F and in this case, F2M.

    In the recent episodes of “Um Himmels Willen” – – one of the nuns is trying to be a singer, too, so I was not that flabbergasted to hear about that plot point.
    Of course, the crossdressing-stuff…. erm…

    well, to me, that show is now officially a Korean Crossover from “Um Himmels Willen” with Mulan. ^^ Less swordfights, though, although that would be awesome. ^^A crossdressing nun wielding a catana against someone – could be a new idea for a magical girl show. ^^

    The part with the “barfing in her own mouth” was indeed very gross-out, but unless there is nothing else like that, I’ll chalk it up as the “gross-out-moment” and then it is okay. Like with the 11th Doctor, when he ate the food Amy was providing him with and spitting it out again.

    But this looks like an interesting review-show… so, yeah – I’m back as a regular viewer of your stuff. ^^

    Live long and prosper.



  • TiakerAvelonna

    …this makes PGSM look like srs drama. Oo

    Please don’t tell me she threw up on one of them. Please?

    I kinda like it. It’s cute, corny as hell, and I’m intrigued to learn about another culture.

    Did you draw and animate the little caricatures of the band? Great job, if so! (Great job on the rest of the show, if not.)

    Interesting that this program is sponsored by Baskin Robbins and Audi (among others). I wonder if Baskin Robbins offers a Go Mi Nyu booze vomit flavored milkshake.

    • Magdalen

      I did draw and animate them, thank you for noticing!! :DDD

      • $36060516

        I had to ask to make sure you did it, because the quality looked professional enough to be part of the actual show!

      • JD

        yes those were nice, i assumed they were part of the show.

        • Magdalen

          NOPE! I madez ’em. :3

          • danbreunig

            Mind if I ask how? You know, for future reference. 😉

          • Magdalen

            I drew them on paper, inked them then scanned it into my computer. Then I colored them digitally and imported them into Premiere. From there I just used the Premiere motion tools to animate the sequences.

    • Jay_Bay

      That sounds, delicious.

  • jjramsey

    A cross-dressing female protagonist surrounded by guys who make teenybopper hearts twitter? Hmm … seems familiar. There’s debauchery here, isn’t there? 🙂

    (Points for those who get the reference.)

  • Endorenna

    I truly enjoyed the Sailor Moon series without any previous background in the show, and it looks like I’m on the same track with this one! 🙂 Thanks for starting a new series review! Looking forward to the future episodes. As always, you’re hilarious when riffing on the show without actually insulting it. ^_^

    • Magdalen

      Thanks for sticking with me! Please share the show with others, I’ll need all the support I can get in the coming weeks. 🙂

      • Muthsarah

        *eyebrow raises*

        And whyyyyyy would that be? 😉

        • Magdalen

          Haha don’t get your hopes up. I’ve applied for the TGWTG talent pick up, but frankly, I don’t think I’m going to get chosen. I’m one in a few hundred candidates and there’s a lot of talent out there. ^ ^

  • Jay_Bay

    So, not trying to be a rabble rouser, but Nycea-where is the summary to the PGSM Special Act?

  • Maxine of Arc

    This is spectacular. I have No Prior Knowledge of this show, where I’d seen PGSM before, and I’ve always been a little leery of the jillion Kdramas on Hulu, because I have no idea where to start. I hope this helps!

  • DPPal

    Finally something you made after PGSM I can watch/read without the Social Justice Ideology being shoved down my throat… I’ll be sure to tune into every episode.
