Bracelet alert at 12:48 of the second video. The hairstyle is the same and even the outfit is similar, so this is likely just after Liu Wen's appearance and the WGM shooting on the red carpet. Still I like to see it on his wrist.
Just looking at that Liu Wen pic. Supermodel, schmupermodel. Totally well-matched with ole derp face.
(pic from one of his SNS posts) Seriously, what I love about this couple is that they are both such perfect specimens of humankind, in looks and body form, and yet they are deeply, unstoppably dorky. They really have not been spoiled by all the attention showered on their looks and have taken the time to develop themselves, give of themselves, and just be really nice people. They are more than what their genes have gifted them.
Of course there is. Fruit salad, regular salad, hot chilli version, maybe even salad with rice (gasp). Just sayin'. I'm just waiting for Keenie to threaten Siwon back with the footage. SiWon keeps holding him hostage with the skydiving photos!
Besides the swoonworthy-kiss, something else struck me about Ep 8. Ever since SA's memories first started coming back, and we saw on Park Bo Young's face exactly how much Soon Ae has lost, we haven't returned into how unjust her death has been. Soon Ae - critical to the functioning of her family, hard working and caring of others, goes missing (murdered, most likely) and no one has a clue how to catch the killer. But in this ep, the way she urges everyone around her to live harder, do more, grab every opportunity - tells me that even in her less-sensitive ghostly state, she wants everyone around her to live hard because she herself never got the opportunity. I don't know, I just felt so, so sad for her.
Yup. Sometimes I think they pre-arrange with their SJ Oppas, so that it'd be easier and most convenient all around. No one gets offended, rumors get raised and dissipated and the variety monster gets fed. The pairing up between those two groups has been happening for ages. I'd be more surprised if someone from Girls Generation actually dated someone from Super Junior. TaeYeon (girl on left) has been shipped with three different members of SJ... that I know of! And yes, she ended up dating someone from EXO. Go figure.
Agree. Excellent post. Even though it's frustrating for us as shippers, I think we'd hurt for them too, if they became public with their relationship. The media scrutiny can be terrible. Imagine the situation for yourself! In the first few months of a relationship, when you're still trying to figure things out, and you have people asking you at every possible public event you have "How's your other half? Are things good with you two?" And then you have to answer without giving anything away, not in your face, not in your body language, even though things might be rocky. There is no escape. Lee Jin Wook and Gong Hyo Jin, Tiffany and Nickhun - broken up shortly after being 'exposed' by Dispatch. And then, let's say the celeb couple doesn't make it - now all the media are asking for your 'reflection' on what happened. Again, no escaping, when all you want to do is to work it out in private. Ji Sung once said that even though his relationship with his wife is now public (after years of secret dating), he doesn't find the scrutiny easy. They were outed shortly before getting married. So it's a mercy and a wise move, that their relationship is secret. SiWon clearly hates hiding his girlfriend, and I understand why a man of integrity would find lying about such things distasteful, and so I feel he's been as straightforward about the relationship as he possibly can be, without actually inviting full scrutiny. Also, that bit in the book of photo memories that he wrote, where he said, "My....". I found that pretty mischievous. Who cares what "..." is. Isn't the possessive claim of "My" enough? It is for me
Me too. "Are you ready?" Ready for what? Ready to wear a ring, ready to be engaged, ready to declare something? If it were a mundane kind of "ready", would his eyes have been so full of mischief and hidden thoughts? There's always this sense in their conversations that there is some secret off-screen talk that has happened. I love it. Refer to 'fruit salad' discussion earlier. Wise words.
@silvergrey those are some serious shipper skillz you are developing. You're welcome, although it was but a small insight. I don't have much evidence to offer other than gut feeling after observing Teukie for so long. I do agree with you about the eyes! Both Teuk and SiWon had the most guarded faces in the Radio Star. Their eyes kept shifting, as if scanning for the next threat. Teuk's almost always like that when it comes to personal life (more so lately, due to the family tragedy), but now SiWon is kinda doing it too. Gotta wonder.
Alright, as promised to @liddi, just some small thoughts about why I think Teuk and SiWon talk to each other about matters of love. Just after TeukSo ended, in the period before Teuk enlisted, he was out a lot with SiWon. Like this: http://www.soompi.com/2012/09/14/super-juniors-leeteuk-posts-drunk-photo-of-siwon/ and this: http://www.allkpop.com/upload/2012/09/20120904_leeteuk_siwon.jpg In this picture that Teuk posted on his twitter, the timing made the TeukSo shippers sit up and pay attention. Normally Teuk likes to say he's out playing basketball at the Han river, after he's done it late at night. Around this particular time, Teuk posted this pic at 3am (I think), and Sora was due back from the US on a 4am flight. We suspected that he was up and about waiting for her to be back, and that Siwon was a convenient excuse to be out - like his alibi. Teuk has stated many times before that he likes to date by parking at the Han River (apparently many celebs do that). It isn't much, so as I said earlier it's only a feeling. However, when Teuk protected Won by deflecting the question away from Supermodels to Gisele Bundchen, I felt as if he knew what Won was going through. Also, among the members, SiWon is the one with the least need to be brought up by MatHyung when they first joined. Perhaps that makes it easier for Teuk to connect with Siwon about women, marriage and future plans.
Wow I got actu chills as Sohbingu was trying to "release" Soon Ae. That was creepy and intense and terrifying for Soon Ae! Then DATE time. Only real Bong Sun, and by that I don't mean the shivering frightened version, makes Sun Woo squee to himself. Seriously, he was having such a good time being with her and it was patently obvious. So we learn that Bong Sun is quiet but scarily tenacious, and equally capable of tunnel vision as Soon Ae when setting her sights on SW! LOL SW doesn't have a chance against these two ruthless women. I am a little sad that poor So Hyung suddenly got shoved into clingy second lead territory (in ep 8 preview) and I hope that impression is wrong! She is cool too, but her timing with SW is a messed up. All in in all a great ep. Looking forward to comical seduction scenes, BS discovering SA's sad story and sis-nance to the Nth degree when they fight off the big bad. Am getting a little impatient to see SJ the monster appear.
I really really REALLY like the things Wonnie has been saying in his interview. He's making all the right noises.^.^ In particular, I like that he has an attitude of humility. A man with his degree of success, who is confident of his abilities and his attractiveness to women - let's just say I agree with Liu Wen's immediate mistrust of the rich, pretty boy. However he has some real substance on the inside. I like that he knows what his drawbacks are and that he treasures Liu Wen for her tender, caring heart.
@atky thank you for posting! Glad you figured out the insert image method. This couple doesn't even try to hide their off-screen connections. Seriously, I can see why Dispatch would be bored trying to run an expose on WonWen. There is nothing to discover at all, it's just laid out for the world to see!
Side issue, but thinking of SiHaeHyuk as police officers is just... mind boggling.
and http://twitpic.com/show/large/d4xzfg ( Distinct Magic Mike vibes here!) All I can say is that I am glad Liu Wen went to SS6, because if she can still love him after watching the concert, she certainly does accept all of him, and not just the cool namja side of him EDIT: @atky Maybe can you share some screengrabs of LW sharing bugsy/wonnie pics and tell us about the reason she was showing those pix? To answer your question: This is what I know about military service in SK. The first three months is more or less the same for everyone. It's Basic Military Training (BMT) time and it ends with a graduation ceremony and a posting. During this period, I don't think they have access to smartphones, but they have access to letters, two ways. So they can read and write letters. (luckily sweet Wen is a great letter writer. Wen better get someone to translate them before sending though, I doubt SiWon has access to a translator!) We won't see Siwon during this period. No photos are allowed, even if visits are allowed. The first photos come at the graduation ceremony, where family comes to witness. Then they are posted. From what I see from previous celeb policemen (eg. Lee Je Hoon) there are occasional pix of them, as they may have semi-public jobs to do. However, the military ranks do matter, and the higher they climb in the ranks, as someone mentioned earlier, the more freedoms they tend to have. If I remember correctly, Teukie climbed three ranks to the highest one possible for military service (don't ask me which, I am awful at those things). I have no doubt SiWon will aim for the same thing. And achieve it, knowing how ambitious he can be. Nevertheless there are regularly scheduled breaks, which seem to come more and more often toward the end of the MS. Teuk was very law-abiding, so even though he was already out and about visiting the SM building, no pix of him made it to the public sphere. SiWon posted one of Teuk's legs once, with a delighted 'hyung is here!'. Teuk was sneaky with his SNS though. He wasn't technically allowed to post anything, but he did regularly change his profile pic, thus assuring everyone that he was alive and very much in touch with what was happening with SJ. I don't doubt SiWon will find a way too.
I thought that SA can't leave on her own, once stuck in SA's body. So unless she gets kicked out (like with the shaman's staff) she doesn't have any choice other than to keep living in BS's body. BS hasn't given her a list of do-nots, so she hasn't broken any promise to BS other than actually possessing BS. Also, while many feel that SW has fallen for SA, I think that he hasn't quite reached the state of 'falling' yet. Certainly there is a developing friendship, and sympathy for the difficulties that SA/BS has, but to me, he doesn't seem to find her constant hankering after his body palatable. He finds SA amusing, for sure, but he reserves his fanboy ways for Sun, the blogger, aka Bong Sun.
