  1. I hopped on the thread and wanted to see what everyone's take on ep 21 was as soon as I finished watching it. WOW! This episode is full of what? Why? and Where? I'll admit, this went into a completely different direction than what I was predicting. Thanks again to all who have helped shed various insights to all the characters and scenes in this episode...many of you addressed the points that popped up for me as I was watching tonight. I'm sorry not to name you all as I had over 4 pages to back read and everyone's posts were becoming as addictive as the drama itself. you are all so fast. The writer just keeps adding more layers onto these characters without us getting any answers. It's like a house of cards, I don't know if this is the real personality, or real birth, or real character's intent or is it all a set up? Has revenge already started and we just haven't been told? Is JS perhaps bringing out her spoiled nature from when she was living with the Choi's as a little girl but it was all suppressed? After all, she received nothing but love from the Seo's. She was protected like she was the baby, yet Hyun Soo is the baby of the family. I'm glad DK spoke up and pointed out that JS was obviously raised with lots of love. For DK to have to explain the obvious to his parents that JS will not want her parents (Seo's) hurt and for them not to believe him really puts them in need of a reality check. I mean DK seems more like the educating parent. Papa Choi being from a more humble upbringing should have accepted this reasoning. Perhaps this is also why the ratings keep going up...the excellent acting, story line, shameful stereotypes and shifts in direction of the characters. It's definitely fueling my curiosity of not just what will happen next or how will parts be revealed but now, it's how will the character behave? These character's behaviors has not been predictable. It's driving me crazy. I like how I saw JS accuse papa Choi of losing her and how it was their fault too not just the Seo's in this whole menagerie. Way to go JS! That's how you bring the high and mighty down a few notches! Why did JA not question it when she went to the Choi house? Makes you feel that JS has more than flour in her brain. When Eun Seok was first found as a toddler...being from a rich family, shouldn't her clothes have been a give away? After all the Seo family was well off too for a time...shouldn't they know she wasn't dressed in low brand...she was dirty, but did the abductors change her clothes? I mean mom had her in matching expensive hair jewels...clothes should have been too? How could you call her abandoned when dressed well like that? The writer sure is doing a job with adding more and more questions to these episodes without answering any of them. In addition, with pure Kdrama fashion, you have the typical, THEY DON'T SPEAK UP when they should explain. I found myself screaming at the screen, "Spit it out"! Kinda how JS was trying to get answers from JA. So I'm glad finally JS said in that moment during their talk after the slap for JA to speak up! UGH! I find there is a flaw that doesn't seem right...now, the cell phone is not foreign...the Seo family is pretty tight knit, how can Hyun Soo be left out with such important news re: JS/JA? He's not living in another country. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Mdm No said not to let Seo Hyun know yet. Hmmmm and of course, why is there so little excitement and anticipation of meeting JS the real Eun Seok...instead mdm No seems like she is not really eager in meeting her unlike the way she was for JA? Is the excitement old news and she's exhausted from already doing it once? I know we get the flashback scenes for mdm No with her affection for JA...still, she has a real daughter who is alive. Attached to JA or not, your real daughter should bring forth anxiousness and heavy emotion. Instead when manager SGH gave a uh oh look and the Choi's acted like an unwanted guest has descended upon them. Again, maybe it was a mislead into the next episode. How will the writer get JS introduced to all the people who met and know JA? That's going to be interesting. getting to episode 50 is going to move quickly. I agree with some that I found it refreshing that JS took a change in her character. I thought she would be the bubbly wholesome "Heidi" bringing the Choi family to a warmer state. Instead we get a feisty "Why did you lose me and it is all your fault" attack instead. I also loved the two young spoiled sisters going at it a bit in the preview for ep 22...I hope there will be more of that as I think each are going to teach the other some good lessons. They'll be begging for JA! Haha
  2. Sorry to cut your post @Sakari. This is what had me feeling awkward LOL...Glory of Family or Family's Honor was one of my fave kdramas...so seeing DK with parents CJS who played PSH's brother-in-law in that drama and father in this drama felt off. The actor PD chose to play DK's father, JNM just seems too young to be his dad, but more like an older brother...and CJS seems so distant from DK as a dad. I know actors are not always selected and the ages are off but it is also the way CJS behaves with DK. Just seems that CJS is so sentimental and warm regarding EunSeok which shows he can be a caring father and indifferent with DK. JMS looks more like the age of DK's father. There was a scene when they were getting the Anniv event going, the uncle disputed something and DK was shocked...I thought, ahhh, here we go, the fight for CEO begins, but then when DK presented the revised proposal, uncle OK'd it happily...more like he was being a strict dad, and then approving the revision. I'm wondering if there is a secret with DK's family tie.
  3. Wow! I've been reading silently from the beginning and you are all awesome with the predictions and analysis of what is happening with all these characters in every episode. Thank you for the terrific insights...it made me want to join in with my lil' bit of POV. I'm finding as each episode is shown, it gets shorter and shorter cause I want more and I don't want it to end. The acting by the leads are spot on. I'm not at all surprised by PSH as he has proven his skills time and time again in all his past dramas. Shin Hye Sun is really being given wings to show so many facets of her wonderful acting. SF was good, but here she is really displaying her depth as an actress. All the senior supporting actors/actresses are well known and accomplished so the performances are making this drama top notch for me. I know so many are in shock over JS slap to JA...here is my take...JS adores her sister and adopted family. JS is in shock and the one person she needed wasn't there to take her phone calls when she needed her. Recall how often she would call her sis when she had crush issues or when she baked something or wanted to share news? She is very dependent on her sis (JA) and she has always relied on her. I felt like the slap was more of a "Where have you been, when I NEEDED you?" I don't know if I can believe JS's character will change drastically or away from her adopted family. After all, she was raised with this family as her own and you just can't forget or give up that emotion or love too easily no matter the injustice done. She never had the desire for wealth or success or even schooling so going to a home that values this above all else is completely against her character and nature. When she finds out what kind of life she will have to lead in the Choi household, she may want to run away from them. JA may have to stop her LOL. I think DK's mom really adored JA and that empathy or adoration is going to rear its head somehow. Another angle may be that JS will be the bright light (warmth and happy go lucky ease) to the Choi family that will show them the way to being more humane vs. money hungry/company minded and vicious people. I think Father Choi definitely has the genes that JS inherited, its just been stifled by his wife and the Chairman. JS and her bio dad just may team up and become the changing force in this chaebol family. OK, I can dream can't I? We ultimately know that CDK and SJA will be together...just how it will unfold and how much suffering they will have to endure before the Choi family allows it is where the next 29 roller coaster episodes will go. Let's hope the 30th (ep 50) will leave us with complete satisfaction. Thanks again everyone!!!!

    Thank you @Irish_law for keeping up the current works for HSJ and posting them here. He mentioned in his interview that he went to Paris around May/June correct? It was partly for work so this was his photo shoot from spring. He looks so good I wonder if he has his next project? I've heard he doesn't like filming in the winter. Can't wait to see him on screen again.
  5. I'd like to express my gratitude and appreciation for everyone's wonderful analysis, input, reviews, explanations and most of all patience and enthusiasm. I'm not familiar at all with CMUS as I explained, so I'm one of those viewers watching a drama that is absolutely new. It is also a genre that I don't normally watch. I am a fan of LJG. I also enjoy MCW's work. I've seen all of JG's past roles and it's why I am watching CMKR. For someone like me who gets weak at the sight of blood and can't stomach gore I'm ashamed to say I have to FF through some scenes. I do this with any show that gets a bit graphic. Thanks to everyone here and there are so many I apologize for not listing you all, I give you my THANKS!!!!! Your breakdowns, explanations, analysis and critiques has helped a novice to this genre truly enjoy the experience of CMKR. We have so many here who deserve to be scriptwriters themselves with all the understanding of scenes, character emotions, actors depictions of their roles, editing of flow and managing of directions, etc. the list can go on. I could only hope that CM staff writers looking for honest input and reviews would look on this thread to get an objective and sincere feel of what they are doing well and if any changes could be made they consider looking here as a valuable resource for their yet filmed episodes. My computer is misbehaving so I'm going to stop, but please continue all your wonderful posts as there are many lurking here like me who are thoroughly enjoying all that you have to share. Yes, even the constructive criticisms and comparisons to the (US version) helps to have a better understanding and appreciation for this drama. I'll be here reading everyone's take on future episodes. Thank you for everyone's amazing videos, recaps, gifs and help with newly uploaded episodes.

    Thank you @Irish_law. I saw this EW clip but it didn't have English subtitles at the time. I'm glad you posted it here. I've been hungry to find current updates on Ha Seok Jin LOL. I love his acting... he caught my eye years ago...I liked him in Unstoppable Marriage and my fave drama with him was Legendary Witches until 1% of Anything. It was cute that he got caught when the MC asked when his last relationship was, and he said 2 years, but there was a script and it said 6 years. Hmmmmm, HSJ what is the real truth Oh what a tangle web we weave when first we practice to deceive. LOL! I know not too many frequent here nowadays which is sad...would like to ask if anyone else noticed the drift off look SJ gave when the MC was describing what he looks for in a girl. We all pretty much have read about the cell phone bit...but when she began describing the physical aspects...he had a look in his eyes like he has someone already. Very suspicious kkkkk. We all know he will never admit or tell if he was seeing someone which is OK. I guess my delulu is still with his 1% of Anything costar JSM kekekeke. I saw her on Running Man. I guess she bought her first place (apartment) recently. The RM cast teased about her being on her own away from parents. I know in a translated interview question (I'm sorry I don't know who posted it), SJ shared that his mom said to give marriage a try this year (2017). Why would a mom say that unless he is involved with someone? No parent would expect their child to marry when they don't even have a girlfriend yet. Seems awfully suspicious. I'm probably just here with a couple of you. I would like to express my thanks for your updates too @Go Seung Ji I was excited to see SJ was working on some CFs. I wish the best for him as he is such a sweetie and I would love for him to have all his dreams come true.
  7. Thank you @jeonghyang for your thoughtful notice and all your hard work helping us to get a good glimpse of Episode 1. Wow, we're on our way...It has been too long a wait and now we can finally see all the wonderful results from the bts and videos, screenshots, gifs and interviews shown on screen. Everyone has been wonderful filling us in on this thread. Thank you for all the continued excitement that everyone has shared here for the first episode... @LyraYoo @Jillia @Chellsee @zi4r @mulberry9 @antoniaclamens @pixelsticks Sorry, I know I'm must be missing some of you as there are so many contributors on this thread and the pages flew in just a day. I hope you all know how much we appreciate your efforts with updates, photos/videos and translations. It has been exciting waiting with all of you for this moment. I look forward to how CM will be studied by all with everyone's input and analysis. Thank you again EVERYONE! A very Happy Birthday to @LyraYoo and @Jillia
  8. New York gave me the hopes, The Prescon sealed it...look how far it all has come...waiting for all the originators to post...their awesome detective work from the beginning, uncovering all the evidence and their eagle eyes and their informant connections moved this ship across the world. Come back and celebrate. You promised you would when the marriage announcement was made. The sleepless nights looking for clues from all of SJK's clever FMS, the various award ceremonies w/SJK and SSC...the translations and dissecting movements, HK IG clues, Mag interviews and hidden meanings, their traveling and all the airport sightings...this has been one heck of a thread! Thanks to them it was addicting from page 1. Thank you all for making it so exciting and memorable.
  9. I finally get to post...I've always told myself I will hold off until the marriage news. It is finally happening...but no surprise...been lurking since page 1 and I'm thrilled!!!!! Everyone here has been supportive and positive. This ship hit some rocky waves, but seeing how far this thread has come proves the number of believers were never wrong. Exciting News!!!! Made my 4th of July!!!! Congrats to SSC and to us all!
  10. Thank you @chi13lou for loyally posting our JoonU's daily chant...Helps keep this ship alive and moving like raising the flags for sails every morning . Seeing your chant updated daily lets Stargazers and hopefully our OTP know our unwavering faith is still here. Keep believing everyone...we know it is a waiting game...we knew that from the start...CM is in filming and JE is busy too. We see glimpses of their work, so we know they are in a good place with their careers. It's a bit quiet here...A great time for back reading and reminiscing all the amazing insights, encounters and evidence that set our sails from SoSoo to JoonU . Thank you @Lampel, @deori, @krysyuy and @arya maaneet for all the IG photos shared. I miss our OTP, these pictures sure keeps our JoonU spirit alive Fighting Stargazers!!!!!!
  11. @Lampel yay, crumbs at last!!!! Nice to see signs surfacing with these two... I'm not getting the pictures of the ig photos you posted with Korean writing...is it just me? Our king looks like he's keeping an eye on his queen's schedule... Keep positive and hope for more...
  12. Lee Joon Gi 이준기

    LOL @cedarwood (see highlight) I was envisioning and walking through your description while my heart was putong, putong in anticipation of what I thought you were going to end it with...expecting for you to say...and you run into Lee Joon Gi. you got me good!
  13. I'm very late in finding this OTP...I've been on other shipping threads...but wanted to write in to say how much I've enjoyed 1% of Something. I've liked it so much that I've watched it around 4 times now. Yes, I have a life but OMG, these two are so cute together. The episodes (length of each ep) are shorter than other dramas and these two are so fun to watch that it flies. I enjoyed reading all the posts from page 1. I was happy that I was not the only one seeing something magical between these two. I'm sorry to see there hasn't been any new posts here for a while. Perhaps things are very under the radar with these two or maybe there has been signs to the contrary? Anyway, wanted to leave my post to say how much fun and how refreshing it is to see this OTP act so openly lovey dovey and hope to hear some news about them sometime in the future.
  14. Lee Joon Gi 이준기

    Ohhhhh, I love your gif too @cedarwood, I will treasure it. kekeke I agree @violina can't take my eyes off his cute smile and lip biting kekeke. The throwback gif...he's like a young boy yet doesn't seem like that was over a decade ago... Thank you for this CM bts photo @Lynn11 There is just something about JG in a uniform...How can a man look so beautiful and masculine at the same time???? He's timeless... Thanks all for the wonderful photos and gifs...can't get enough.
  15. This is so cute, sweet and beautiful...Ah, yes the memories of our journey on this ship. Thank you @deori for sharing...I don't have IG so I'm very grateful for these shared posts...hellostargazers57 did a beautiful job!!!
