Annyeongg~~! *siiiighhhhh* if Solim was still filming, there would have been a very high chance of seeing a cameo of jaerim or some on set footage for soeun's drama through wgm. It would of been awesome esp since they both role played saeguk/joseon so much on wgm. Jaerim as her royal guard would have been epiiicc~! But since that didn't happen, I will patiently wait for jaerim's food truck. Along with the drama lords granting Solim a drama or movie opportunity! Or maybe really a cameo... honestly seeing them with other ppl even if it's their job/careers still makes me feel weird. Haha. Something of a otp/shippers life I guess. Like I've had a pretty strong heart when it comes to solim but if u ask me what my heart is still weak on its that: seeing them with others (of the opposite gender) . I just cant bring myself to watch their dramas for that reason even if I know it's acting and professional work. It's something I prob will eventually get over. I just need to change my mindset of what this is:: this is their job, Solim supports each other, if they're okay, I'm okay...and like jaerim had said "think of this as something else/different"...etc..etc.. I saw this on tumblr and it pretty much sums up me and my weak heart on seeing them with others haha~~
However, i fully do support them for these great opportunities they have received. It allows them to grow and expand their craft as an actor/actress and that's really really great. --Soeun looks great in those photos too bringing back lots of "obedient Kim" memories
Solim's first daylight meeting still gives me flutters, every time. The moments before Jaerim's famous "nuguya?" as Soeun is approaching him, both covering their faces, Jaerim "like a cat" bent down in that corner. It was like you can feel the heart pounding nervousness, the excitement, anticipation, curiosity and so much more just running through. Ahhh~! So great, soo great, love it! The camera work was great as well. It put them in such a beautiful frame! (Honestly, Solim got some of the most prettiest camera angles/frames through their journey #likeadrama)
Solim wasn't going to be the average We Got Married couple when their very first words to each other was..... Jaerim: "Let's play a game" Soeun: "Ok"
I already watched their first episode the other day, but I will again! It's so nostalgic but so much funnier every time I re-watch them, and because we know what happens on their journey now, the perspective is all different, I'm here like, "these two have no idea whats ahead of them"...kekekeke~
Don't mean to sound greedy but I guess it's just one of those days- I wish MBC would release more or just longer unseen footage of Solim. There are just sooo much we never got to see. I so appreciate them fiiinnally releasing it as of late but it's almost like such a tease. And I'm still here wondering where the Q-tip came from. Haha. I just read that over at KBS and for the show Superman Returns aka, Return of Superman with the lovely song triplets, they are releasing X-files: never before scene footage for previous eps (~45mins) each month. I understands it's a pretty high rated show so it makes sense for KBS but still MBC, why? Why? WHY?! If only you did that toooo~~ Why so stingy?
Edit: This photo of Song Manse + Daehan in the back makes him/them look like the product of Solim...LOL.. the way they are dressed head to toe is what Jaerim would wear and probably what his future kid(s) would wear too.
@ummi @luvsushi wow wow wow~! I am so so so sooooo envious but so so so happy for the both of you being able to meet jaerim! What luck! And I love how generous he and his manager was/is. LOL at the "thank god for his happy time" but its so true! I wish I had ran into a celebrity when I was in Korea last year but unfortunately all I was met with were cardboard cutouts. Huhu~ I need to and really want to go back...*sigh* need to save more money though. Going to Korea from the U.S is too expensive for me. But when I do I'm soo doing the Solim trail! #bucketlist haha~
I had planned on posting earlier but l just had the hardest time trying to put together my many many thoughts and emotions. But I am here finally and with a long one! WOW that last episode was soooooooooooo bittersweet! When I watched it raw, it didn’t take long till I started tearing up! It was like when they cried, I cried, when they laughed or try to break the somber mood I would try to laugh with them. Those flashbacks, the background music, the sad looks on their faces, their emotional BRI didn’t help either….it was just endless tears! Like they said, just thinking about the memories and all the things they’ve done together and had gone through, the emotions just built up to a point where you really can’t control or hold back anymore, it just comes out. I think I watched the raw like 5 or 6 times straight when it came out (crazy, don’t know why I did that) with a few breaks between each to gather myself but when I thought it would lessen, I would cry or tear up just the same amount. My eyes were soo red and puffy. I mean I knew I would be really sad and there would be lots of tears but it was like waaaayy sadder and more heartbreaking than I had anticipated. I’ve never cried this much for a WGM couple or seen other couples (esp both) cry this much. Makes me realize just how much Solim means to me. Seeing Jaerim and Soeun both break down in front of each other and in their individual BRI just speaks to who Song Jae Rim and Kim So Eun are to each other. I don’t know how they can hold in their tears watching this ep and with their BRI. The most heartbreaking or saddest part for me was definitely their last BRI when they described what kind of husband/wife the other was. Soeun’s burst of tears and her saaad “Otteoke~” was like the final jab to my heart, and eruption of non-stop tears and running nose. I felt like it took on so many different meanings that only she knows and will have to figure out. Jaerim’s answer was just amazing, like that is seriously what love is. Again, I seriously don’t know how they can hold in their tears watching this. Some ask why they are crying when they can still contact each other and etc but I don’t think that’s the reason they are crying. It’s just so much more than that, especially for that moment. Plus both Jaerim and Soeun are not the type to cut off ties just like that. As Jaerim said, just because WGM ended doesn’t mean they it’s the end with Soeun. Their after party scene is basic proof of that. It was definitely sad but I think Solim had a fantastic goodbye episode. It was very simple and short but I think I like it that way better. I like the flashbacks, the photo album they looked through together, the quiet night, their home, just the two of them. This last ep brought back a lot of memories from their first ep that makes it come full circle for me. They were wearing white just like their first meeting, drinking bellflower root wine (The slowmo of the bellflower root wine’s last and final drop was also so so sad too), they first met in the dark and said their goodbye underneath the moon and stars. Went through their first mission card Q’s. Even at the after party, taking selcas, sitting in close proximity and Jaerim’s arm just casually over her back like the first time when they were at the apt.
I think they knew their time would be coming to an end soon but I don’t think they were ever prepared or knew how to prepare for it. So when that card said it would be the end, Jaerim took it hardest and didn’t want to break Soeun either. Though I’m not entirely sure, it does seem like they weren’t told it would be their last filming till the mission card. Usually couples would know and be more prepared, some even prepared goodbye gifts (But heck with goodbye gifts. It’s not goodbye for Solim.) Though I didn’t like the fact that it seemed abrupt, I also see it as one of their many blessings in disguise. If they were told ahead of time, they prob would have been more prepared, and we prob wouldn’t have seen this much raw tears and emotion on screen. Emotions are something we often don’t see or even show to people so in a way being “abrupt” just allowed their inner feelings to show. It was all laid out on their patio/table. We know how strong Soeun is and know she holds her tears and emotions very well; she doesn’t show it often. (Even in Music and Lyrics when she was having a hard time she told the cameraman to stop filming). I felt like this was the one rare time that we get to see completely through her tough wall. I love and appreciated her strength to show that side of her. I notice she teared up or cried when Jaerim cried or even at just the thought of him and his sadness esp in her BRI. While Jaerim would reminiscence their time together, she found things to say or joke to try and break the mood, to hold in her tears and stay like the strong Soeun that she is used to. She would say it was because of him that she’s crying but all the things she was trying to do to keep her and even Jaerim strong didn’t really work. She was really sad, and they both feel those emotions and the realization of the “end”. I sooo feel for her. I think as girls, we understand her emotions. Soeun’s tears was what really got to me the most, esp since we rarely see it. Gosh, as for Jaerim, my appreciation for him always grows. It means so much and touches my heart when a man cries. Many guys hold it in very very well, and as much as he wanted to he couldn’t, he has such a soft but big humbling heart. They both have very humbling, beautiful, sincere, and genuine hearts. Like many I really appreciate that WGM/MBC gave us that after party. I think we and Solim well deserved it. It was definitely a mood lifter and it was great to see them happy, still close as ever and pretty much having the same relationship as before. I love that they were communicating with fans through their SNS, which again comes full circle as we can all remember them taking a commemorating selca at their home and bickering over what retweet was. Like Jaerim I really really enjoy seeing the change in Soeun. Like who would of thought she would be replying to fans right?! And I totally love how she just LEEAANNS into Jaerim to do the heart with him. Just LOVE!
Everything just worked out well and this is the most content I’ve felt while shipping a couple I love so much. No regrets! I respect them so much am really hopeful and Solim makes me hopeful for them. They aren’t going to just end it and not ever speak to each other again like previous couples. They are definitely remaining in each other’s life. I just want to thank Solim for this amazing journey. You both have worked hard and have been such a beautiful couple to watch. It’s one that I could never forget and I wish them the absolute best in their endeavors, careers and _____ship. Thanks to the MC’s for making us laugh and being a part of their audience. Thanks PD for pairing this beloved couple together. And thank YOU Honeybees for always keeping the hive positive and filled with the first news of Solim!
That Solim photo just gets me going "AWWWWW~" ^^ i love it and it's meaningful. Those who love them know what they mean with those gestures. Or at least we can interpret it that way (<3, infinity, 5 for 50 yrs). I honestly with the years of watching wgm couples, I never knew wgm did farewell parties or if they did at all before, and I feel like solim was the first bc they have also never released a picture like that (that I've known of or seen of other couples). Even though we despise wgm/mbc sometimes, Solim was special to wgm and they were such a gift to the program and to us. Solim are only the second couple in wgm history to win best couple but first to win it that fast. They were and are so well loved and I can see that then and now. I remember during the end of Adam couple (who was the first couple to win best couple for wgm) they had them do their BRI together in one room and I thought that was a nice way to end their run. So when I look at solim's photo it almost makes me question if this was for their BRI too, but seeing how busy jaerim was that day, prob not (?). Whose ever idea it was to hold this party for them, thank you! Cuz they got to meet once more, and we got our shipper hearts filled with so much happiness while going through a time of sadness with posts from Solim themselves and now with that heart photo. They will be in each other's life for a long time... "Till the coffin lid closes" i was planning on staying up to live stream their last ep but I have such a busy day the next day that I can't wake up to puffy red eyes bc of watching it and not going to sleep. Plus I feel like they'll be the last couple to show. I'll be holding off till later, but I sure will be well prepared with a roll of tissues. I feel like we're all going to be in a rollercoaster of emotions- in tears but also laugh alongside them. I'll be avoiding spoilers so I can enjoy and cherish this one last time. So I'll be here with words, thoughts, and virtual hugs only after I finish watching them. "It may be the end of a journey, but a new one is just beginning" to 50 years and infinity~! <3
Ahhhh yeeahhh~~ once again, what an awesome interview. This is why I love jaerim and his interview answers. He is so thoughtful. The way he views life among other certain things are just incredible and I soo agree and love it! He keeps his life open and open to different possibilities. That's life! Sure his priorities may vary but he doesn't ever deny or reject the things that could happen. I mean seriously no one really for sure knows their own future. His greyscale life is awesome, his words are awesome and at times inspiring and I just love it! I feel like I learn so much from him each and every time. Jaerimmiee~~ stay exactly how you are...*cuz boy you're amaazing~ just the way you are~*. And like soeun said: "don't ever change and don't get bored"
wow, that hug at the end of this ep after jaerim jumped was one of the best full hug they've ever had. You can just feel the raw emotions running through them. I can't even explain it, it's just so so so so beautiful! Both jaerim and soeun are very brave and brave for each other. They always fight their fears in order to do or experience something memorable together. I actually was suuper disappointed they didn't get the chance to do a couple jump but what they did is actually very satisfying. It made me feel proud of them. It was a different feeling, but a good one. They are indeed not like any other couple. When couple jumps are usually to bring a couple closer or to get out a confession, solim does it differently and seperately with unending support for one another on each end. Its like a reflection of their relationship. It's full of support. They don't need to be closer or confess a feeling because they already surpassed all that, it's all about supporting each other. So their bungee experience makes me feel happy and proud, they didnt need a couple jump. (Though, my greed wishes the ep was longer! I'm sure they went to eat and did other things that day) the preview, *sigh* the preview. Tears didn't fall when I watched the preview, I think it's bc of the tone/bgm they used but it definitely fell when I just saw the screencaps/gifs by itself. Lots of memories and emotions come running through. It kinda sucks that their last ep is during the dark hours and in siamri, but I guess it's okay, they first met in the dark anyways and siamri was a place that has allowed them to rely on each other more. Like I had said previously, I'll be crying buckets of salt water. I'm sure the flashbacks will bring more emotions and what they'll say in the BRI will be even more deep, which will add more tears. Though I'll be crying along with them and prob most of you, I am ready to leave wgm too. Never solim but wgm yes... also this oppa/dongsaeng thing that's been going around. I'm not quite sure what was said but I'm pretty sure we've been through this once before. We have to consider the Korean custom of referring to someone who is older or younger. It has different connotations and can be lost in translation. So I wouldn't read into it too much. They are both very focused on their busy careers. If it's meant to be it will be. One thing is for sure, you simply cannot take away what they had/have and this journey they just went through these past months. Whatever ____ship they have now, let them have it. Only time will tell....with a lil help from fate. The only thing I'm looking forward to for now with solim outside of wgm is that food truck jaerim plans on sending to soeun on set. I've always trusted jaerim's words so I hope he doesn't disappoint! Oh! And also jaerim still had two coupons left (sky diving, hold in anger). He can def still use those outside of wgm whenever he so can... *wink*wink*
Respect to all the new couples, and good luck to them. *sigh* I'm soo ready to be done with wgm. I already know there are going to be so many scenes cut and so many things will be shoved into these last two episodes, but I'm going to enjoy it as I can bc simply, its solim. I want to finish this part of their journey on a high note and leave wgm right along with solim on their last ep. I'm ready, of course with a roll of tissues too but I'm ready.
"it's the time you spend with your rose that makes your rose so important" Love this quote^ interpretation from a buzzfeed writer: you don't find someone important, or love them, just because they exist. It's the time you have spent together, the things you have battled through, the memories you have built, that make them so important. As "The Little Prince says, "I have made him my friend and now he is unique in the whole world".
