@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.
I've been inactive lately but I still check in to this thread daily because I love the discussions and sharing of pov. I've not watched the new couples so I'm not able to comment. Or perhaps I've also become too cynical to watch it now. I know I should treat it like a rom com but can't help feeling cheated after being let down time and again. Even if they do not pursue a romantic relationship after their stint ends, they couldn't even remain friends? So whatever we see on screen for the past months were all an "act" or something insignificant that they can just treat it like a job. On one hand, I understand that it's just a show and partly scripted, but on the other hand, I want to believe that their interactions and progress on screen is real because they are "selling" the romance. So it's a huge letdown to find out otherwise..
Anyone found it strange that only SoLost had a wrap up party? Jjongah was unceremoniously departed with their bags even packed up. At least minyoung had a wedding photoshoot although it was way too short while Hewon was spent with Eric/Chloe when it should have been a "alone time" for them, so there wasn't even a proper farewell for them. Why do they get special treatment? Because they won the best couple award the first time in the history of WGM? Anyway, it didn't look spontaneous, it's still fan service. I bet you she switched off 360 degrees the moment the cameras stopped rolling. Are they trying to convince us that they will keep in touch even though their stint ended? I would have believed it if SE had shown some "real" concern for JR instead of treating him like a pathetic fool all the time.
@packmule3 Welcome back!! Though I don't know when you will disappear again. When you are back, you get back with a vengeance, no one can articulate as well as you do. If you happen to drop by Singapore, let me know. We can have a WGM conference and maybe FaceTime with the rest That will be fun. I'm still not sure if I'm watching the new couples, although I'm keener on the older couple. The young couple are just babies....handholding is still virginal to them. I've caught a bit of the other couples in the china version. Their interactions seems more real?? They even had psychologists on their panel to give feedback on how well they are doing in the relationships. Interesting... One of the youngest couple; a young actress who never had a bf before who's coupled with a singer/actor who had a few relationships before. In one of the latest episode, she visited him on set to surprise him but was met with coldness. She went around to give the crew beverages and thanked them for taking care of her "boyfriend" while he practically ignored her and continued talking to the director/crew. When they were finally alone, he gobbled the food she made and wasn't keen to drink the soup. She didn't lose her temper cos she knew he was in a hurry and left. He texted her to wait for him to finish. She was practically in tears walking away. Poor girl. In the BRI, he mentioned that he separates his work and personal life. The first thing he said when they were in the car was that he drank the soup. He realised how he had come across to her and explained that the crew only had a few hours to finish their shoot, and thus he was not able to take care of her. When he went for another filming at an amusement park, she acted as his assistant. When they got on the buggy, she was no where to be found. When she finally appeared, she explained that she went all over to look for some lozenges cos he was coughing badly. I like the way they showed the progress of their relationship naturally, rather than the manufactured set ups like in WGM. The psychologists perspectives were also great as they gave viewers a credible point of view on how to react to similar situations in real life. Solim - I felt sad watching their last episode. Sad because it started off great then got derailed because of SE. I'm also sad because JR couldn't hold back his "real" tears. On the other hand, I wanna laugh when I see SE with her "fake" tears and the way she wiped her tears with her well manicured nails (@viyra Thanks for spotting that, cos I didn't notice it at first). Up to the end, she still reprimanded him and wanted him to man up cos he's a man. What about her? Behave like a concerned wife for once!!! Jeez....
@viyra. So true. It's so unnatural. Or am I just being bitchy? Whatever... Perhaps she just painted her nails and couldn't afford to smudge it. She's like "damn, why BRI now when my nails aren't dry yet?"
Another ship sank. An older WGM couple - Lee So Yeon and the pianist Yoohan. Many shippers believed they were secretly dating. Reality bites. http://www.soompi.com/2015/06/13/actress-lee-so-yeon-to-get-married-in-october/
I'm with you on this. Is it that heartbreaking ? They are still in the same industry and will definitely see each other or heaven forbid, work on another project together. Is it that earth shattering? It's overboard. My only argument is that he put his all in the show? Or he was simply too relieved to be rid of her? Or combination of both?
