Seriously?? I found SJ lacked chemistry with other female guests. He's always holds himself back. It's obvious that he likes PSH cos she was a good cook. Even with BOA, he treated her as a female colleague, the way he usually would with others. As for KHN, I don't think she gels well with the guys at all. It made me feel uncomfortable watching her interact with the guys because she was so sensitive and insistent on doing things her way. In fact, she had been receiving negative feedback from netizens. http://www.soompi.com/2015/07/04/three-meals-a-day-pd-na-young-suk-responds-to-criticism-of-kim-ha-neuls-guest-appearance/ With JW, it's a comfort level like that of a stable girlfriend cos he doesn't filter anything. Korean guys are rather chauvinistic, considering SJ is already in his 40s. He wouldn't like having a female he barely knows reprimanding him or ordering him around in front of the crew and on screen.
In Chinese culture, I think sweets was synonymous with being rich in the olden days. In the days long ago, people only cared about filling up their tummies and had no qualms eating any food that came their way. Only the rich could afford it as sweets are stuff like cakes, snacks, etc.
@viyra That's my worry. Are they just acting? Or are they hoping it turns real? I'm excited about the next episode because OMS is successfully in the skinship. He even piggybacked her and laid together on the bed. That's some mighty progress. I realised Yewon was in Bad Guys, that awesome drama where criminals are released to catch bad guys. She played the police inspector. She's also gonna be in a new movie with Lee Sang Yoon. http://www.dramabeans.com/2015/07/news-bites-july-19-2015/ This is the only couple that I'm keen on. The rest I watch to pass the time.
Hi Gals, Haven't posted in a while though I still lurk frequently. Revelations from this episode: 1) SJ kept telling JW "I kept asking you and grew suspicious" - after he mentioned that she didn't mention that she was appearing on the show although they met 2 days ago. 2) JW constantly ordering SJ - he smiled and did as ordered 3) JW reprimanded him about not doing anything and letting the guests and Tac do all the work - SJ never got angry at all and just bicker cutely 4) JW swapped his foot with the mosquito swapper - bodes familiarity 5) Besides lying down comfortably on the bed even with JW there, at one point, his legs were even pointed upwards like a kid - his comfort level with JW is just too comfortable. Compare his behaviour to other female guests. 6) SJ admitted openly that they see each other frequently, otherwise he would have said they meet each other sometimes, during events, etc. 7) SJ insisted that she's not a guest but a host - I doubt he's referring to a sibling relationship How can these 2 be just friends? Their body language and bickering are just too cute. Even Tac felt that they have gone beyond the dating stage. Dating stage is still at the beginning stages whereby both parties try to only show the good side. But the way they behaved shows that they have gone past that stage, where the relationship is already stable and both have already seen each other's good and bad sides as well.
After watching WGM on and off for years, I finally found all 3 couples who actually like each other. More often than not, it had been one sided attraction or zero attraction with some of the couples. But I think all 3 couples do like each other, which in turn bodes well for the progress of their relationship. It's awesome to watch them as there's no longer any domineering wife and slave husband roles. It's a breath of fresh air not to have any more flinching, emasculation, competitive behaviour or toilet humour, just to fill the air time.
Seriously, I don't know what is the big deal. We were referring to SE's PR skills compared to when she was in WGM. Just like fans who jump to her defence at every little thing, we can't help but always refer back to her behaviour in WGM. So we are likely to talk about SE again and again, as long as we are referring to their WGM stint. My thoughts on the latest episode, which may be rather cynical. BE couple - Aside from being lovey dovey, do they actually try to get to know each other more other than a superficial level? Perhaps it got edited out? Their skinship has already exceeded LTE couple by leaps and bounds. As JH is a typical Busan namja, I wonder if he will actually kiss her or tell her that he loves her? Confessing their love for each other is the norm but by not saying it proves that he's not doing it for the show? It's always the same thing even with dramas, fans always wonder if it's just for the show or for real? Baby couple - Both are so cute and innocent. Is this all an act? Firstly they are idols and are trained to behave in a certain way in the public eye. We've already established that WGM serves to help idols portray a certain image and interactions between them are mostly scripted? These innocent acts are questionable, who knows how they are like in real life? We've had many instances on celebs' real personality vs that we see on screen. Matured couple - IMO, this couple is the most real one. Or perhaps they are just good "actors"? I like that she doesn't put up a front and that MS is trying so hard. He's always wishing for more skinship. lol It's rather shocking for him to stitch. I don't know any guy who does. WGM needs to review their manufactured setups. It's getting old...They always visit fortune tellers, meet the parents, amusement park dates, extreme sports dates. Are these the only activities Korean couples do in real life? In my part of the world, we don't. You can never get me on any thrill rides or see any fortune tellers in any of my dates.
Jeezzz.....she avoided JR like a plaque but wanna kiss other guys in the drama. What excuses are her fans gonna say to that now? PR? Ya....right. She's a private person remember? So she will never mean what she say.
Finally I can contribute to this thread cos I finally watched the latest episode. BE couple - Still saccharine sweet that it has become predictable = getting bored Young couple - Reminds me of my teenage days when even holding hands was a big deal. It's like watching puppies playing around. Matured couple - I'm most interested in this couple because they are really unpredictable. I like that MS finds Yewon fascinating and able to accept her "ditziness" as being "cute". I'm curious what he means by "when they are put together, it will be chaotic? That it won't be suitable for broadcast". Was he referring to sexy times? That they have sexual chemistry?
@Lmangla Oops! I missed out on the next frame. It should be Marriage Expectations. Marriage Expectations (Hubby) 1) No matter what happens - no lying 2) They must communicate at least once a day even though they have a full day schedule 3) The wife must give encouragement to the husband who goes for work (Wife) 1) Hope to become the reason that Hubby can resist temptation 2) Visit each other's filming site 3) Communicate twice daily 4) Hubby needs to be home before midnight even if he has a drinking session 5) Go for "culture" dates twice a month (eg. plays, movies, musicals)
How are they gonna achieve that when they only film fortnightly? Maybe they don't know the rules of WGM and thought that they actually have to keep in contact outside of WGM filming?
I've finally caught up the last 5 episodes of WGM. 1) Solim - Glad that their stint finally ended. Up till the end, SE behaved the same way towards JR while he's still the big softie. 2) BE - It's still nice watching them but they are getting predictable. Their lovely dovey moments have not abated but I'm getting tired of JH praising SY's beauty only. Isn't there anything else to say about her aside from looks? BTW, are there names given to the 2 new couples yet? 3) Young Couple - Cute and innocent but not too keen on them because their actions will be restrained and restricted because both are idols. Plus due to their age, the skinship is gonna be slow. They are more likely to be "acting" so everything seems fake. 4) Older Couple - Interesting pairing since Yewon is really 4D while MinSuk is down to earth. I watched the chinese subs but not sure if I got the full correct meaning. He's so funny. He said he hoped that he could hug his wife to sleep... but the hope went down the drain cos he knew he had to sleep on the floor. When they started on the discussion, Yewon said what she wanted from a boyfriend was to get a handbag. lol. She wondered if she shouldn't have said it but went for it because she said she had never got a handbag before. He also mentioned that it's the responsibility of the husband if the wife strays. It seems that he will be a good husband. Marriage agreement 1) No matter what happens - no lying 2) They must communicate at least once a day even though they have a full day schedule 3) The wife must give encouragement to the husband who goes for work Looks like I will continue to watch cos I'm interested in the progress of this couple.
@honeygeeko Considering how JR was shooting his mouth off in his interviews but she didn't even mention him by name. To her, he's just a work colleague, whom isn't qualified enough to be her friend. I hope JR learns his lesson and not be a doormat of a boyfriend in real life. He deserves a friend who appreciates him and accepts him for who he is.
@pre. Actually I was referrIng to minyoung couple. That interview with NGM drove a stake to my heart. They seem so real but alas, they just had a good working relationship. I was hoping that they were still in contact or perhaps even dating secretly. That's the life of a shipper, we live in hope. Solim?? Nothing there because SE already shattered the illusion with her Sina interview, then later her dating scandal. After the way she mistreated JR, I'm fully aware that there are not even friends cos she doesn't respect him or feel he's her equal.
