Segue Cafe - meet up with friends to chat about whatever strikes your fancy


F4 Thailand: Boys Over Flowers premiered today and I am loving it! I really like FL actress-she is so believable in the role. Ep. 1 was a great start and I am looking forward to the next episode. And can we talk about the visuals for this drama-wow! Everyone is soo pretty!
Petition to have F4 Thailand as our Baristas here in the Cafe in honor of this premiere week, pretty please?

Otherwise, saw that BTS has been nominated for Best International Group for 2022 BRIT Awards. Competition is tough so they have their work cut out for them, I think. Voting is done by industry professionals who are members of BRI so it’s not a fan award for this category. Sentimental favorite is ABBA, and I have to admit I’m kind of rooting for them to win as I’ve been a fan for years and they really are an amazing group.
Interestingly, Butter was not included in the 15(!) nominees for International Song of the Year. Nominees are determined by sales-top 15 best selling songs for the year are the nominees. Guess BTS don’t sell as many records in the UK as I thought they did.



We are happy to have the F4 Thailand boys as baristas. If you have a photo or GIF of them you want to add, feel free. You are already familiar with who they are, so I will leave the searching for images to you. :blush:


I love ABBA too. So happy to see them nominated for awards this year after their comeback. I know they are longshots to win but it’s still nice to see them get recognition at least. Hopefully these nominations will lead to more people checking out their music and get them some new fans.

Thanks for sharing the pics. I think I have seen one or two of those actors in other projects. Where is this Thai version of Boys Over Flowers streaming?


It’s available with English subtitles at GMMTV YouTube and VIU.


Hello Santa!!


And now for something completely different.
Found this Quiz that is different from the usual. It was pretty fun!

Which BTS Member Is The Most Attracted To You?


Haha did you mean to post this here or in Vivi’s thread? Just asking :blush:


I meant to share here in the Cafe. Is it not allowed for here in the Cafe? Didn’t know about the separate Soompi Quizzes Forum.


It’s totally fine that you posted it here in the cafe. We like to discuss our funny results here sometimes, but there is also another specific thread about the fun quizzes that Soompi puts out. They are entertaining.


Thanks for the info. I also posted the Quiz in the Soompi Quizzes Forum.


Of course you can :blush:
Like @my_happy_place said, there’s a separate forum for Soompi Quizzes specifically, so I asked just in case.


I believe I read somewhere that Disney+ drama “Snowdrop” is not available in the U.S., so is this also going to be true about its other new drama “Rookies” with Kang Daniel and Chae Soo Bin? I really wanted to see this one, and I’ll be upset if it’s not available here in the US.


Hopefully Disney+ will make Rookies available in the US/North America region and not just SEA. They had to have witnessed the huge impact of Squid Game and Hellbound for Netflix in North America indicating there is a market and demand for Korean content here. We will have to see. Personally, I think it will be a 50/50 chance since they did not offer Snowdrop to North America.


Disney+ did not much to take a stand against AAPI hatred in the United States in 2020. Their remake of Mulan was disturbing on so many levels.

Netflix has some issues, but that’s where I saw Jackie Chan in The Foreigner (gripping), Keanu Reeves in Man of Tai Chi (beautiful), and Andy Lau in Shaolin (transcendentally spiritual). And some very interesting K-dramas.

Sadly, I had to make a choice between Netflix and Viki in my budget, and Viki won.


Many holidays in many cultures require stretchy pants. Hope everyone has sufficient pairs ready!


My schedule over the past three years has evolved so that I do two things late at night after taking an evening nap: I watch Viki and clean house.

This I discovered recently, and it knocked me out because it was so cheap, simple, and useful.


This show is 100% subtitled, all episodes, but is looking for a Channel Manager. It also does not have the option to add to a watchlist, or a collection. :thinking:


maybe the CM isn’t active or has left Viki…
