  1. @jl08: Here's another response to your query...Boyfriend's record of 100 countries is truly impressive!
  2. The one who tweeted says the airing of the drama in Indonesia via TransTV led to a marked increase in the number of commercials
  3. To calm our nerves... https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs5I97zh_HB/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=1352s9lb9s096 … https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs5MJGEBKWf/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=bk8lpfkkybnl …
  4. Hahaha! I think it will happen as all events in episode 14 hinted it and was supported by the preview translation. this is the reason why Jin Hyuk will not leave Soo Hyun even if she asks for it. Our Jin Hyuk is one stubborn namja! Just you wait and see!

    @Cloud_Jello Twitter The 30-sec preview was just about Kim Jin Hyuk being inconsolable and heartbroken after Cha Soo hyun tells him she cannot be with him.
  6. When Congressman Cha visited the remains of his deceased friend, he said that he will be gone for a while and that he would be back. I want to tie this in with his conversation with his wife when news of him withdrawing from the Presidential Elections came out and he asked for her help... I thought that this was what he was going to do and it was finally confirmed in the preview... He will turn himself in as having received slush fund to campaign for the mayoralty race and for a seat in the Congress. Although his wife was the main culprit because he didn't know until after the it was not the house collateral that funded his campaign but Taegyeong. Hence, he was caught in a bind to agree to marrying off his daughter to Kim Woo Seok at the wife's prodding, part of the condition for the funds that were given. By pleading guilty and asking his wife to corroborate with his testimony, he will implicate Taegyeong for political bribery therefore causing its downfall (hopefully!). This is the reason why he entrusted Cha Soo Hyun to Kim Jin Hyuk. When Congressman Cha was sure he could entrust his daughter to Jin Hyuk, then he decided once and for all to carry out something he had wanted to do for a long time yet hesitated, first, out of cowardice, and second, because he didn't want to leave his daughter alone. ____________________________________ It will be a very intense and emotional episode.

    I love, love, love Bogummy's crying scenes!
  9. Not at all. WS is totally out of the picture now. In their world, there's only Cha Soo Hyun for Kim Jin Hyuk and Kim Jin Hyuk for Cha Soo Hyun. They're fated to belong to each other and to no else.

  11. Many namjas watching the drama might be inspired to follow the footsteps of Kim Jin Hyuk, @jl08! One may just lurking around the corner. I just hope no physical harm nor damage will befall Jin Hyuk and his family...so far, only Jin Myung's scene was the most action-packed. -------------------------------------------- Makes me wonder, which generates more income, pre-selling to many countries---this is record-breaking since we are talking of 100 countries---or airing it over Netflix.... Prepare boxes of tissue paper, everyone!
  12. Thanks so much @khxy, @utkim, @bubblechoco! Loving what i am reading in the preview! Certainly not for the faint-hearted! Kim Jin Hyuk is one amazing namja! Whoa, in the Arirang World video tweet, it says the drama was pre-sold to the US and several European countries! I wonder if we will be able to get a list of these 100 countries. I posted the list many pages back but these were mostly Asian countries.
  13. Thanks, @nikir! Whoa, go Jin Hyuk! Given the weight of his commitment toward Soo Hyun's Dad to protect her and to stay by her side, he WILL DEFINITELY NOT leave Soo Hyun even if she asks for a break-up! @CJnDrama Twitter
  14. Written Preview? Translation anyone? This video analysis of the drama has English subtitles...his review has depth, something I don't find in the drama's English recaps.
  15. Fanart Boyfriend has been a "healing drama" for me. More than the lovely romance, it has inspired me to take step back and assess if---in the words of Congressman Cha---"I have been living my life properly." Cha Soo Hyun's heart-breaking (only because it's so simple yet so arduous for her) dream to possess the joys of of ordinary life and Kim Jin Hyuk's life wisdom to find beauty and joy in the simple things of life were both wake-up calls for me to value what I have and to "steal the joys of each moment" (both the good and not-so good ones) seeing these as gifts life is giving me. I hope that the drama has moved you in ways similar to what I have experienced. This drama engages all of us to participate in a rich discussion of the narrative, the characters, the setting---symbols, cinematography---the soundtrack---oh and yes, the mindblowing romance!---which I have to say has been consistently beautiful. Since we each come from different cultures and backgrounds, it's a given that we will have differing views and perspectives about the drama. We can always agree to disagree in an "agreeable way", respecting each other's views and presenting our counterviews in a non-polemical way. In the drama, I was truly impressed with the calm way Cha Soo Hyun dealt with her so-called adversaries(I am not saying we have some in thread), Dir. Choi, Mr. Lee, Chairwoman Kim and Woo Seok ( to a certain extent), firmly pointing out her views yet without ever compromising respect for the other person. I love that about her. I also observe this trait in Jin Hyuk. Really, we have noble characters in the drama to learn a lesson or two from! Peace, everyone!
