So, I couldn't really write down my complete thoughts earlier since I was typing from my phone. But now that I've somewhat gathered my thoughts, I'll share them now. Despite how bad the last two episodes were, despite how depressed it made me feel... I don't regret watching the drama. Maybe it's because JJM is on my top of favorite k-actors, I don't know. But honestly, the sadness I feel in this drama is probably nothing compared to how angry I felt on how JJM's character in Empress Ki was written. I swear his character was wasted so much in Empress Ki... but that's a whole other story lol. I can't forget it though. It is true that how a drama ends does affect our entire view on the drama as a whole. And for me it has given me a sad view on it... but again, I don't regret it. I'm happy that I got to see JJM, KSR and everyone else in this drama. I have no regrets on that. I honestly don't. Or maybe my bias for JJM is just that strong, lol. Who knows.
Soompi Project Announcement: 2015 MLED Soompi Awards Hello, everyone. (: I'm announcing this pretty late, but I'm announcing a project that I'm going to start planning for. I've done two 'Soompi Awards' in the past. One for the drama YTBLSS (You're the Best Lee Soon Shin) and one for the drama FTLY (Fated to Love You). So basically, I have a lot of categories to decide, so far for the MLED Soompi Awards the categories I've thought of are: Favorite Kiss, Favorite Soundtrack Song, Funniest [character name] Scene, Favorite [character name] Outfit, Favorite Quote, Favorite Supporting Character, Favorite 10's Scene, Favorite 20's Scene, Most Emotional Scene, Most Romantic Scene. This is what I've thought off the top of my head right now, but I need help with more categories. I also need help with nominees for each category, basically I need to list every possible nominee for each category. I hope any of you can help. Just mention me @Ayame on this thread with your category and nominee suggestions. I plan to finish the planning and set up in two weeks maximum. Then after that the voting period will be 2 to 3 weeks (still deciding that). A few days after will be the 'award ceremony' in this thread. So basically after deciding all that, I make all the graphics of each category and nominee in Photoshop. After that, I list all the the categories and nominees in a poll in Google Forms (where the Photoshopped pics are linked in each category for people to see), and I usually leave it open for 2 weeks to vote. When I close the poll, I make Photoshop images of all the results per category and have an ‘award ceremony’ in the soompi thread. For those who are curious here are examples that I did from the FTLY awards: Favorite Quote category - http://i.imgbox.com/Kkbyo1WB.jpg Most Romantic Couple Moment category - http://i.imgbox.com/HXhv7fb0.jpg Most Romantic Couple Moment results (that were posted during the 'award ceremony') - http://i.imgbox.com/GowjC3jL.jpg Favorite Soundtrack Song results (that were posted during the 'award ceremony') - http://i.imgbox.com/kt33tNmF.jpg Screencap of FTLY Awards voting poll - http://i.imgur.com/nbmsmi6.jpg Despite the disappointment of Episode 15, I've really enjoyed this drama. I hope a lot of you can help with this project. I'll PM most of you in this thread tomorrow, just in case anyone misses this post. In the FTLY soompi awards I did last year about 361 people participated when it came time to voting, so I hope we can get big numbers this time, too. Honestly doing these awards helps me with my post-drama withdrawal symptoms lol. Looking forward to this. (:
I feel (sort of) calmer now. Thanks to everyone for the more positive posts. I'll try to be positive, too. I really hope the heartache doesn't last very long in the final episode. I've watched so many dramas where it was good for the most part, but at the end the ending would be so rushed. I really hope that is not the case for this drama as well. I'll put my hopes into the last episode *breathes out* I feel somewhat better at least.
Hello everyone. *waves* I posted the link to the preview earlier, but I haven't really introduced myself yet. After episode 1 aired, I went on a vacation out of country for like a month (with super slow internet), so I couldn't watch most of it until the last couple of days. I've finally caught up with this drama, and everything about it is really good: the acting, the writing, the OST, etc. I've seen a lot of JJM's works prior to this, so I've been really looking forward to it. I think I've only seen one of KSR's dramas in the past (which was Tokyo Showers--the ending of that drama depressed me lol), but I think she has done really well here. (: I'll try to post more going into the final week. I think the last kdrama thread I was really apart of was for FTLY last year, honestly. (*waves* to anyone from the FTLY thread lol) Thanks to everyone for the live recaps and translations, btw. I'll be here tomorrow for Ep 14 as well--since it is summer after all. ^^v
