didnt really thought i would cry but gosh...that was really kinda heart wrenching. i just felt the way wgm ended it was rushed. i'm thinking they were hoping that the contract will be renewed (?) and when it didnt they were scrambling for a way on how to end it. i wished they gave SY and JH more airtime because they deserve it--hey they even deserve more than 24 episodes! when SY started crying i got teary eyed too...then i realized the reason why JH was sort of unemotional and trying to hold back was because he didnt want to see SY cry. the moment he saw SY's tears he wanted to wipe it right away. i just thought it must have took so much effort on his part to hide his emotions and even smile after they receive that mission card. JH was so reluctant to let go even during the recording session, he gave a half-hearted goodbye hug. we all know thats not how JH hugs, he usually cups SY's head gently. i guess he was instructed to give a goodbye hug so he had to do it. in all honesty when they were singing and they were flashing back scenes from previous episodes it really seem like a pre-nuptial video the one which they show guests during a wedding reception! hahaha really. it didnt feel like a goodbye scene to me. and for the life of me i dont know why they had to cut the scene of the after party. to me the part where JH was still "charging" after the show was over was a way for him to show his "rebelliousness". its his way of saying look its really not scripted, virtual marriage or virtual divorce i will still hold and kiss this girl's hand! hehehe :-) for weeks i was kinda sad that their stint in wgm had to end, it just feels so abrupt. but then again i thought ok, wgm already did their part in affecting JH and SY's destiny when they matched them together last march 2, 2015. it was more than enough. from their actions i dont think they will let go of each other that easily. and for us brownies, i will give a qoute from the movie "Steel Magnolia's"...the part where Julia Roberts explained its ok to enjoy the moment even when you know the end is near because its these moments (however short it is) that gives happiness to our existence: "I WOULD RATHER HAVE THREE MINUTES OF WONDERFUL THAN A LIFETIME OF NOTHING SPECIAL." believe me...those 24 episodes are epic in wgm's history.
This is a "Gosa" (고사,告祀) ritual that have shamanistic origin - Nothing said lucky like a pig head The boiled pig heads is used in this ritual for those who are launching their own business, starting a business-related project, moving into a new house or buying a new car. The more smiley the pig is the better, the traditional saying goes. The cost ranges between W10,000 won - W30,000 won depending on the quality. Then the heads are placed on the table along with many different kinds of dishes from Sirutteok (layered sticky rice cake made of adzuki beans) to dried pollack, steamed rice, jjeon (Korean pancakes), pears, apples and chestnuts as well as alcoholic drinks including makgeolli (fermented rice beer) & soju.
Visitors stick cash - in multiples of W10,000 - they have prepared into the mouth and ears of the pig head. (The cash goes to the host of the event.) Then they kneel down and bow to the table. Some people choose not to bow due to religious reasons. When the ritual is over, the visitors eat and drink together. The pig head is also sliced and eaten with fermented baby shrimp.
The whole process is called Gosa (고사,告祀) in Korean, which refers to a shamanistic ritual intended to prevent misfortune and bring good luck. As the superstition goes out of fashion, with the modernisation of Korean society, fewer people in the past decades hold the gosa ritual when they move to a new house.
The rice cake with adzuki beans is used for the ritual because the color of the grains is traditionally known to expel evil spirits. For Koreans, pigs represent money and fertility. The reason the animal is associated with money is that the Chinese character meaning pig reads don, which also means “money” in Korean. Also, pigs are known to be able to breed up to 15 at a time. That is why when pigs appear in dreams, people take it as a sign of good luck and go buy a lottery ticket. Despite the long-held tradition, an increasing number of Koreans find it unpleasant to see an amputated head of an animal. Some have begun to replace it with a sugar-coated cake resembling a pig’s head.
some translations- for the scene at the wrap-up party: JH: Thanks for all's hard work the past 6 months. For filming us well/prettily, thank you a lot. You've worked hard. JH: During this time, for loving us both, thank you all SY: Thank you all SY: Let's not pretend to not know each other in the future. You will do that(pretend to not know me) right? JH: You were intending to do that(pretending not to know each other) originally? SY: No x3! We will get along well. JH: Although 02 couple has concluded, but the re-charging will continue on SY: Re-charging... hahaha SY: Oppa, hold (my hand) properly JH: Please don't hesitate! SY: You smell like the barbecued meat!
Me too. I have actually stopped visiting Dramabeans since two years ago, and other forums as well, even blogs too. Unless someone here mentioned that the blogger's comment is good, then I will give it a shot to read. There's no use talking to people who are hell-bent on hating Yongpal or the casts. They just wont listen. They're not being professional about their comments, they just spew hate or negative criticisms. Too much negativity makes us negative as well. I'm staying in this thread because we discuss/criticize professionally. We dont bash, but we criticize and provide opinions through a healthy discussion. It's very good for us, because we see things that others dont and vice versa. We may have been too used to certain KDrama ways that we didnt open our minds to other possibilities or scenarios. We even learn new things in life, like the Cyclotron etc.
the problem i saw there is the feeling of "i-know-all-about-dramas" attitude both of the posters and writers, and yes i still consider javabeans and girlfriday as the epitome when it comes to blogging and i love reading their opinions but sometimes it can get out of hand because of the comments that are sometimes so weird and uncontrolled. sorry for the off topic, but this is still in relation to the YP as a drama being critiqued harshly
So who brought up this topic of GW being uncomfortable? Was it JW? Did she plant it in JJ's head?
I like what you said about GW saying that she shouldn't run away like a daughter-in-law. For me, it's like he was implying that they were only having a marital squabble, and they could work it out together. lol.
had all these thoughts in the morning as I was surfing on the phone here on this thread but then forgot them during the day.. hahahha... @irilight ~ was thinking about your question regarding MS dad and whether he held a job. wonder if he was also unemployed like DS and a poor role model -- is that why DS also feels it is okay to like that since his dad was also like that? it almost seems like a cycle is being repeated and it makes me wonder if the grandpa worked either. was it a case where the men did no work and the women were forced to do all the work of bringing in money through selling kimchi and bean paste? -- hence the frustration ends up being let out on the daughter-in-law? CJ almost seems both disappointed and resigned with DS, like this kid is not going to change. wonder if she expected Se Mi to fix the problem, to get him motivated but since she was unable to light the fire, she wanted Se Mi to pull in the weight of providing for the house by helping in the kimchi business. after all, if DS is not contributing towards the house, then Se Mi has to right? wonder if CJ is afraid that if Se Mi continues to work, then DS will not find any motivation to work and continue to stay around the house -- is that why she is so opposed to her working? it almost seems like both CJ and Se Mi share similar frustrations -- they want responsible men but have men who won't take on responsibilities even though they have good hearts. P.S ~ you are right about CJ being at least a layered character. I really don't understand city hall m-i-l. that woman is just messed up and makes me really annoyed. want her to get humiliated by having a beggar husband..
When they meet in the house... JH: Oh you're here SY: Annyeong (I totally love their comfortable tone here. Even their simple greetings are sweet.) JH: What did you bring? SY: Some things (?) for you... JH: Hmm? What is it? SY: You said that you liked misugaru. I prepared some with my mum. And things to go along with it. Honey...And you like to cook right? I brought this (dunno what that black liquid is), and another pack of misugari, (and I don't understand the end of this part about the mum.) JH: Oh...then when I'm done eating all of this, I'll contact you ok? SY: Ok... Afternote: After reading @swarley242 's translation of their car scene, I'm even more positive that they'll stay in contact for a long time to come.
Found another contrast. The first picture was from ep6 after GW dropped off JW after their “date”. He was in a hurry to leave to buy diving gears for JJ and couldn’t wait to see her and to give his presents to her.
But in this ep. GW left JJ with heavy steps and heavy heart. He was still looking at JJ from his side mirror with “that look”. How can you interpret that look guys
Awww their last convo with each other was very sweet:) I also agree that they are being careful with their feelings before proceeding further into a real relationship. I really enjoy watching them on WGM.
Yeah, and I bet this isn't the first time Siwon has used an image without the owner's permission, but we didn't hear a peep then, did we? These freaks are up in arms over that particular image just because the girl in it looked like Liu Wen...pathetic! And now they're continuing to harass Sandra Al? Sick, just sick...it's unfair, but knowing there's such fans turns me off Siwon and his band and makes me not want to follow anything about either one. It's like, if I did, I'd be dipping my toes into a pool inhabited by those cretins, and I'm like...ugh...I don't want to be associated in any way with these frustrated frauen who make me feel embarrassed to be female! I'm sure Western bands like One Direction who are immensely popular with teenyboppers don't even cultivate such extreme fandoms, so this must be a peculiarly sad Asian thing. Of course, I'm sure not all ladies who love SJ are so demented, and those lovely, reasonable ones know who they are. And thanks for the yoga update, juzagurl; Liu's looking happy, chic, and impossibly thin!
wow!!thank you!!! hands down JH, you're the MAN!! saying that on national tv? okay, so this thread is sooo fast hahaha!! i had a busy days, having 2 boys sure is not easy. so i was watching the live stream and I actually cried, i cried even more when he showed her the "flower room" i was touched and i cried even more when they were in the car and then boom, that's when i realized why I was crying. It's bec i won't be able to see this interactions anymore....I know they are for REAL and i believe that, but I won't witness this beautiful relationship anymore..that's what made me sad...but i'm okay now..i'm actually happy bec FINALLY they will be away from those people who doesn't have better things to do but to scrutinize them.
THANK YOU.... When thinking about miracles last night after going through a memory lane of my own of our JongYeon Couple! You realize that a thread like ours filled with amazing talent like @gummypassenger & The BEST TEAM also to those who put pictures on so fast every week it made my head spin with gratatude!! Those who started this thread and other sights that I admire, could never attempt to even try to fill their shoes. A group of people who made this thread a miracle of it's own! Who worked so hard, sacrificed time in their real lives and even their time being able to post here & kick back. The reason this thread is the BEST is because of all of these!! Why are they so amazing? Because they thought of others before themselves!! To all the Brownies that through time moved to line groups you were missed more than you know! I hope to see you again! To those we lost along the way may you never forget the love you saw & felt in our miracle couple. This isn't good-bye because like we saw today by their example there is still so much ahead! Hoping most of you will stay and keep me company I don't think I can let them go and all of you too..... To our amazing couple..... JongYeon They captured our hearts right from the start. Allowed us to see how beautiful falling in love can be. Watching them stirred our memories and touched our souls. Reminded some of us how it once was and others how it should be. While watching them soar above the clouds like a couple of bees. They showed us that of all the things in life loving and being loved is what truly sets your heart free... #02 Always & Forever Thank you For those of you who leave for what ever reason it's been a pleasure! Hope you come back home at least when you can. Forever a Brownie! LOVE TO ALL OF YOU........
Thank you! I don't know about it since Joo Won never tag her But She doesn't post that much ya. Is it a new account? In any case I am happy seeing her BTS picture there <3 I really like Joo Won too. He is so different now, I didn't see King of Baking , but I see him on Good Doctor and now on Yong Pal. He is such a great actor, I swear. He is very detailed on his acting and I am absorbed into his each character very well, which means he is able to pull out his action in such length that viewers may see the character as himself. I am proud to say, I am now, officially becoming his fans for his acting skills. He is one of the greatest kdrama actor and can be compared against Kim Soo Hyun, Lee Jong Suk, Lee Min Ho, Song Joong Ki and even Jang Dong Gun!!!! <3 #lotsofheartsforJooWon
