Korean Dramas - Summer 2017

This is a list of miniseries; dramas over 50 episodes and webdramas have been excluded. I also chose to ignore the split in episodes recently done by some broadcasting stations. Episode counts will be left at the original hour long total for each day. Lastly, if there is a question mark (?) next to a start date, it is a date that I guessed based on previous dramas’ end dates and is subject to change. Happy watching~

170608 Thoughts:  BTS and THAT Japanese Article

On Colorism:

Colorism is an issue, especially for countries with mixed skin tones. No. It isn’t that it is not frowned upon in Asia (as I’ve read some people say) it is an accepted mindset that quite plainly, sucks. It is truly more about your color and what it means as opposed to what race you are form. It is sad how some people still equate lighter skin colors with people who are more learned and urbanized. Here in our country it roots from the idea that those with darker skin tones work in the fields or by the seas while those with lighter skin tones spend days working in doors. This is also the reason why in some countries like Korea, Japan, Philippines, whitening creams are all the fad.

That is the root and it is stupid and it should stop. It would be hard for this mindset to just abruptly die, but seeing all skin colors as beautiful and understanding that it does not define what you do and what you CAN do can be a start.

On Bangtan having preference:

This question of ideal lover (no, not just girl as Yoongi have stated clearly in the past) should never be asked. No matter how many times they get asked this, they always have to create a BS statement that would have to be vague enough for any fan to fit in anyway. So what is the point?

Everyone is allowed to have ideals and preferences, but when you are being followed by millions of people worldwide, saying something that will hit any type of sensitivities is possible. They have the right to have ideals and preferences especially if it is with respect to the type of lover they hope to have, but do we really need to know? No. It should not affect how we love them or their music. So please, for the love of world peace and fandom fam love. Just don’t.

On that Japanese article released:

I was surprised when I saw the questions and answers to be honest, because some of them did look familiar, and yet some where not. The last part about the member’s relationships with each other was clearly from their profile release in 2016 BTS Festa. Some descriptions like whether the girl should be taller or shorter seemed rehashed from a 2014 interview (Jimin didn’t say short, he said shorter than him, LOL). The jeans or skirt question has also been answered in a 2014 interview, but I remember Yoongi said skirt instead of jeans. Even the type of hair and heels/sneakers question has been old. Of course they answered sneakers, this was in 2014! They were younger then!

Anyway, on the topic of the fair skin/wheat skin issue. Based from what I have seen in the article, the responses were all rehashed and put together in a very shady manner. Taking bits and pieces from wherever and editing other bits too. But for this question, in my memory, only Kookie and Namjoon ever mentioned a preference (Kookie – fair skin, Namjoon – pale skin) and they both received heat for this.

When I read what they answered at first, I was surprised that the BTS we know today would answer something like this. And that’s the thing, based from the questions and answers in the articles, it does not seem like they did an actual interview with the members.

I think the article is shady and that BTS now knows better than to say anything like that. Unless it is an official update, meaning the interview was shared by either BTS or Bighit, or you have seen and heard them say it (warning sometimes even subs and trans are not accurate), take everything in with a grain of salt. 

please don’t quote any part out of context. Ty!

Michael Scofield X Reader

Summary: Anonymous said:can you do a Michael Scofield imagine where he scares you? Like you go to the prison to visit him and he yells at you and scares so you leave, but like couple weeks later you go to visit him because he’s called you non stop asking you to come?


A year has past since Lincoln had been in jail and is now sentence to death. At first Michael was certain that he had done what he had been framed for, but all of a sudden he came home and didn’t believe so anymore. I didn’t have a thought in this matter, it wasn’t my place. All I wanted was Michael to be safe and stay away from bad people, even if that meant he couldn’t see his brother. But I can’t stop him from going, he is his own person. Although now I wish I tried harder because now I’m sitting on the other side of a table from him, only this time it isn’t a classic date, he is in prison.

I flung into that prison like no tomorrow. I needed to see him, I needed to know why he would be so stupid all of the sudden. He was the smart one and most successfully of his family.

After getting past the guards and the scans which felt like years to get past I could finally see him sitting at the table, waiting for me. I don’t know what he expects me to say or how he wants me to react;  but I doubt how I confront him won’t be what he expected. 

“What the hell!?” I yelled, walking fast towards him and then sitting on the other side of the table waiting for his reply.

-”I know how bad this looks, bu-” Michael raised both of his arms to calm me down, but I interrupted him still. 

-”You think this only looks bad? No, Michael, this looks like you’re in deep fucking shit. You’re meant to be the smart one, not a flipping stupid kid” 

He shook his head, no. Obviously not taking in what I am saying to him-”It is not what it looks like, let me explain” He said, desperate for my approval, I don’t even know why he thinks I would ever approve of this.

“You don’t need to explain jack shit! I heard enough of it on the news. You didn’t need the fucking money, there was no need to do what you did” I paused, looking straight at him; trying my best to find the reason behind this- “Is this Lincoln getting in your head?” I asked.

-”No!” He said, annoyance in his tone.

-”Lincoln isn’t pathetic enough to ask you do this so I don’t know why I even asked you” I said, rolling my eyes- “I get it, you trying to be all big and brave so you can somewhat feel loved by your older brother but guess what, he loves you no matter what”

He stood up, his chair flying backwards creating a loud bang and getting everyone attention on us two. I looked up to him, anger in his eyes and rage within his fist. I slightly felt scared of this man I loved- “I didn’t do it for all of those pathetic reasons. I did it because Lincoln innocent and I’m going to prove it! I don’t need to here and frankly, I wouldn’t care if you never came back; I can do this without you” Just like that he walks off. Leaving me stunned and tears forming in my eyes. I wanted to believe he didn’t mean it and he is just overwhelm but I couldn’t help but believe those words that came out of his mouth.


I still haven’t spoke to Michael in over two weeks. I keep getting voice-mails from him apologising and begging me to see him. There was one voice-mail where he just said that he Loved me over and over again, poor guard that had to listen to that.

I was still spooked by it, but I needed to see him again. Maybe this time he will have answers. Or maybe he won’t. But I went anyway.

It was awkward. We both just sat and stared at each other. It wasn’t like before where we could speak for ours about random crap, now it feels… Uncomfortable.

“I did it because I’m going to break Lincoln out” He started. I looked at him confused- “I know what you’re going to say and I’m sorry, y/n. But I can’t let my brother die for something he didn’t even do” 

I held his hand, whipping a falling tear from his cheek- “I know, baby. I just needed you to admit it”

Copy That: Teflon Mixer in Stainless Steel, Part 4

  Last part of this job is the shaft. It began as a piece of 3/4″ stainless precision round stock. I threaded the end to receive the mixer paddle bolt, added some flats for a wrench, and bolted it together. 

  To make a good seal between the shaft and the body of the mixer, I reduced the mating surface to a thin ring outside the threads. On the bolt, I tapered the inside of the bolt head so that it would behave like a spring washer and seal the bottom when under compression.
