Hello Dear Sarang fellow shippers Yeah, our ship has finished its "journey". I'm not depressed or sad, I'm just relieved . I'm not depressed or sad because I enjoyed very much our journey and the friendships that I got here. It was funny, it was sad and anguish sometimes. But It was always awesome to share my delusion with you all. I'm relieved because, in spite of the fun, it was stresstfull the waiting. I'm glad we came to an end, even if it isn't what we hoped. And even if it wasn't what we hoped for, I still can keep my delusion and maintain that at some point througout last years LJG and SMH were a couple. I'm not sad because this is Shin Min Ah's life and if she is happy, this is really good and enough to me!!!! I wish the best for her and for Lee Joon Gi, in their separated ways. So, don't be sad dear friends. The end wasn't satisfying but the journey was oh so good !!!! I will keep this experiment as if I was enjoying a korean drama: 14 epsiodes of awesomeness and 2 episodes of weirdness lolol (that was my experience with My Love Eun Dong lol). As Scarlett Ohara said, tomorrow is another day. See you my friends! Many kisses !!!
Hello dears! I didn't watch the episode 15 because we had here a blackout for almost 20 hours lol. I was really pissed off, but now that I read some comments and translations I'm really glad. I was spared to feel myself frustrated and angry. Gosh, I really hope my "bad end panic" doesn't come true. Maybe in a few months I will be able to take a rational look about the 15 episode (or if the 16 will be even worst) and grasp how wonderfull all of it is, but know I only can react emotionally. And, from this emotional condition I want to curse many and many times the writer!!! I won't watch this episode before I know the end. Furthermore, I won't watch epsiodes 15 e 16 in a long time (till I become emotionaly stable in regards to this drama) if the end won't be satisfactory. And for satisfactory I mean happy end. Now, I cant help myself but react this way
Hi! You put it wonderfully! This is what is making me "angry" after reading the translations of the preview. I know it isn't really rational, and I know the writer most probably won't take that route, but my fear is perhaps I have too much faith in the writer (maybe this is only my "last episode that will destroy my beloved drama" panic sindrome lol). But I really hope that the preview is misleading and EH wil not lie about RI's paternity.
These times only in a lurking mode here, but couldn't resist to post something now. @modern_lisa , I think that this song, in a way and metaphoricaly, can well express CS feelings and dilema: U2 - With or Without you Bye ! Unrelated Video, please stay on topic...
@valsava, your words my words Thank you everybody for the delightful hours and comments here. I know it isn't time to say goodbye yet, but any time is a good time to say thank you . Unfortunatly, these days I'm not able to be here more actvily, my real life is really demanding . Furthermore, I will not be able to watch the last episode with you, I will be travelling at that time . About the preview, I will wait to see what it means without further considerations - as you know I'm really bad at premonitions/guesses lol and don't want to try it now. In a way, I'm dreading next episodes, cause I have a list of dramas that I liked/loved and the last(s) episode(s) was(were) simply crapy. However, I still will trust writer-nim this time , .
I agree with you: ED won't stay still for the sake of JH, her parents and even RI. Besides, for the latter I don't know what will be worts, his mother as a not worth woman, who was one of the causes of his "father" suicide, or the whole truth. Imo, the whole truth will be better, I think in RI eyes JH would be easily forgivable than ED-EH betrayl. However, what I think important is that ED has already "threatened" her father and SR, she said she will tell everything. Till know, she wasrefrained because the EH is still very positive about everything. But, I don't think she will stay still after seeing the scale of the scandal.
Hi, I love this song and the movie. I watched the oscar cerimony only to see if they would get any prize lol. I don't know if you know that, but behind the movie love story another love story was going on: G. Hansard and M. Irglova begun to date during the filming In fact, when GH was invited to play the main lead, the director was looking for an actress to play the female lead. It was GH who suggested MI, whon he had known in Praga (I think) as a piano player. As I know, he never said that, but I've alwyas thought that the movie was his strategy to come close with her I don't know if they are still together, but during the time the movie/song was having a huge success they played many concerts as a couple Well, for those who ship the JJM and KSR, is the song a "foreshadow" of the real or reel couple??? lol
Good afternoon. I'm in my work pause, and couldn't refrain myself to come to this forum lol and then to post something. Impov, this scandal with EH being classified as "national adulterer" confirms what we already know: ED isn't legally married. I think that since she discovered the truth ED wishs to put things back to normal in a very lowkey and smoothy way. In this sense, I think she is planning to tell EH about the fake marriage when everything is already "back to normal". Unfortunally to her, events preciptates or rushs up her plans. That happened when Mil put her away from home - she came back as the 90 tail fox lol; that happened with RI's paternity, when HA brought EH home and he "pick" the truth; and that will happen imo with the scandal of "adultery". She will not allow that EH will be bashed without reason. To me, this is a good omem. I don't know, but maybe ED would take months to reveals the truth to EH. lol As everybody has already point here, every action the "evil" takes, it backfires against it and always in favour of ED-EH
Hello, As always many insightful posts, and really I have not so many words to add - you all had already brought so many insightful analysis that I have few to add. I just finshed to watch the episode now, and again I really want to point to awesome acting in this drama. I can't see any weak performance the range is from good to outsatanding . Thanks to the writing and direction, thanks to the layereds characters that give to the good/awesome actors/actresses good material to work up. I also would like to point that, selfish/twisted or not, JH really loves RI and he raised him till now. The fact that he had a handicap doens't give us the right to say that he didn't feed, clothed and didn't put him to sleep. He did it within his physical capabilities. And the result is that RI adores his father. Wasn't JH being sincere and a good father, RI won't love him the way he loves. I think that it is necessary to separate things. First, it is true that JH commit a crime - at least to me it is a crime, attempt to suicide and, consequently, murder of his "girlfriend; sequester her from her environment and her life; take advantage of her memory loss to have intimacy with her (if he wasn't desable, they could have had sexual intercurse, what in a way could be interpretates as rape); lying to her and hence building a fake memory, and of course, stealing a child from his biological father. All that he did, and, impov, even if he will be forgiven by ED and EH, for SR's sake, I still think that the law has something to say there. Maybe I'm too radical, but the law has to be applied regardeless the victims's will or the perpetrator repent, the law normally has mitigation of sentences to deal with those situations, but have to be applied. So I think that "society" has to charge JH, in spite of ED's pardon. Of course, ED's pardon in itself would be a "mittigation" to JH. Second, despite all his wrong doings JH is a good father. The fact that he hasn't the moral right to do that, to be RI's father, doesn't mean he isn't. The way the writer wrote JH - a very complex character - is that of a man delusional, selfish, selfcentered, but a good father. Last, after watching the ep 14, I think that what HA said to JH was capital to his decision of letting go RI. HA asked JH to do that: let go RI and ED. I think her request weight on him. Sure, he felt himself powerless, but I still think her request was important in his decision.
I totally agree with you. His death through suicide will just make things worst. The way RI loves him, he will never forgive HS, he will always feel that JH's death was due to HS - it wouldn't be something conscious, but deep down it will remain there - despite he knowing the truth. What will "survive" in his memories and feelings would be that sweet superman father who wouldn't be there anymore because his biological father appeared. HA also will feel sorry and guilty, it isn't reasonable to feel this way, but in the event of death people is bound to feel some level of guilty - even when this is by accident or even when this by a disease. That will be true to ED and EH - a feeling of guilty in spite the fact that they know rationally that there is no guilty. And the public, the uses SR and Mil will make from it will be unbeareable to ED-EH, I think. In fact, although I think what motivates JH's suicide was his sense of despair and cowardice but not vengeance (and that his act is really in character), at the end, his death will just make impossible ED-EH happiness, and it will meaning that his act will turn to be a most accomplished act of vengeance. I don't think MLED deserves such end, but I'm not sure the writer won't go there Well, I need first to watch the episode, I'm commenting from the recap here
Yes too nice Maybe after he has spend some time in jail???? Although I considere JH's character awesome, I also think it won't be good writing if JH would be easily pardoned. From what I've see till now, I don't envisage how he will easily or fast enough come to realise his faults or ill doings. I think that it would be more interesting if this happens through a long and painful process of self realization. Maybe HA could be a tool in that process (but I doubt I will find it interesting that they get together). As it seems to me clear that he really loves RI, maybe in a crucial or cathartic circunstance RI's welfare will be a key factor to principiates that process.
For those who knows korean, could you explain to me what words ED used when she said, according to the translation, "let's break up"? I'm sorry if this was already said, but I hadn't time yet to go back through the pages. But after reading what @Misstwilightfan1416 and @valsava posted from hancinema, I'm really curious, because there the title was ED ask for divorce, however in the text they used also "let's break up". I still think there is something wrong about the marriage thing. I think if ED used "let's break up" instead of "let's divorce" it is very meaningful. Normally, a married person won't use "let's break up", but simply "let's divorce" or "I want divorce". I don't know, I think it weird use "break up" instead of "divorce" to end up a marriage. Hence my question about the korean word that ED's uttered, and if this could be used for "break up" as well for divorce. In portuguese, my native language, we use differents words to end up a "dates/engagement" and a "marriage". For dates and engagements we use (usually) two verbs "acabar" and/or "terminar" (meaning break up and/or end up), for marriages we uses "separar" and "divorciar" (to separate and to divorce). If there is also a difference in korean, I think it could be a clue to the "marriage mystery". I think that along with RI's issue, the legal or not legal marriage issue will play a very important role in the two last episodes.
Hi @lyaarisa Even if it is only "en passant" :* I guess we are all in an "en passant mode". lol Yeah it seems that is still sailing, through a very peacefull and calm lake, pushed by a very soft and lightly breeze
Just a bit of nostalgy and remembering why we are here, I will post here what I read in soompi.com http://www.soompi.com/2015/07/09/6-times-k-drama-actors-unabashedly-adored-their-co-stars/ I will put here the part that is interesting to us:
