    Thanks for your hard work. Much appreciated. I want to add my support to those who said it’s better that he doesn’t pick SJH. Does anyone truly believe that KJK will casually announce who his GF or future wife is? Given his personality, when he announces, I expect a press conference, not something mumbled over gimbap. Remember that he once said that people usually don’t marry their “ideals.” IIRC, he said this during an overseas interview before he sweetly comforted SJH when she gave the wrong answer (Hawaii instead of Singapore). HH didn’t like her answer, she looked embarrassed and nervous, and KJK casually reached for and held her hand. Whether we see it or not, whether she knows it or not, whether he loves her romantically or not, he’s always done his best to protect her. He’s a sweet guy, not deserving of the latest bashing from some “fans.”

    Hey, guys. Great comments. @cho2 and @sofiemarz, I’m struck by what you guys said re: the response from fans in SK. I’ve wondered the same thing, since I’ve also noticed that despite both SA (and especially SJH) denying a romantic relationship, that hasn’t stopped Papa Smurf from asking KJK about taking SJH to England. Remember that Papa Smurf is the PD for KB, and he was actually there when she “denied.” Also, remember that he asked KJK after KJK said he wanted to take his GF to Europe. When Papa Smurf asked KJK, all the BP staff (especially the women) perked up. Plus, every time something comes up about SA, lots of articles pop up, proof that there’s curiosity and anticipation about the two of them despite their denials. Stay tuned, as always, but if we’re all delusional, lots of people in SK appear to be, as well. Agreed. Hey, great visual. Thanks for the laugh. Have you looked to your right and left? There’s a whole bunch of us sitting next to you. You’re in good company. Have a good one.

    “Marry, me, Darling,” though that’s maybe just wishful thinking on my part. It looked to me like she tried to keep a straight face and not react, but couldn’t stop herself from clapping happily at the end. Maybe she clapped for the married couple, but the timing sure seemed to coincide exactly with the end of the song, like she was proud of KJK. HH clapped just as happily when KJK said “I thought you were my wife,” as if he was proud his hyung finally took the plunge. This time, it’s “Marry me.” The song was picked by the bride and groom, but still did SJH just answer KJK? Just being extra delusional, you guys. Agreed. And, has KJK’s singing ever been as tender before? Wow, no wonder none of the couples he serenaded divorced. Why would they after being “blessed” by KJK? Have fun, y’all.

    This is not SA related. I just want to share since it’s so funny. Enjoy! Credits as indicated. Thanks. Here’s another version with subs. KJK shows the guys how to get over a breakup, or deal with GF problems (LOL). I love that he’s having so much fun. I’m leaving the first vid since it has audience and cast reactions. This 2nd vid doesn’t. Credis as indicated. Thanks.

    SA in next week’s preview. Credits as indicated. Thanks.
  6. SPARTACE COUPLE KimJongkook-SongJiHyo

    I’ve been lurking at your IG, but didn’t realize you post here, as well. Duh on me, LOL. I’ll definitely check out the next part. Thanks! Btw, my skepticism had nothing to do with your work, but rather with the roller coaster ride SA have put our ship through. According to next week’s preview, there’s a scene of SJH hanging on to KJK’s arm. What’s going on? Looking forward to your posts next week.
  7. SPARTACE COUPLE KimJongkook-SongJiHyo

    Can someone please confirm what KJK said? “I thought you were my wife.” Call me skeptical after all we’ve gone through, but if he did say this, what are the circumstances? Thanks! Credits as indicated. Thanks.
  8. SPARTACE COUPLE KimJongkook-SongJiHyo

    I hope SA are not being used to divert attention. It’s not fair to them and their fans. I doubt we’ll see this scene in the actual ep, but these pics are more proof that SA are indeed close, no matter their equation. Remember when she took a bite of his steamed bun in the Gong Yoo ep? Looks like she’s doing it again, here. If he won’t share his food, she’ll just take it. LOL Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. Credits as indicated. Thanks.
  9. SPARTACE COUPLE KimJongkook-SongJiHyo

    Well, SBS didn’t cut the scene, though I wonder why they made such a big deal out of it by posting two pics of an unscripted interaction that lasted a few seconds. I know, I know, click-bait (LOL). I won’t speculate beyond that, except to repost the moment here. Notice KJK’s jerky reaction once he realized what SJH did. This reminds me of his X-man days when he was still painfully shy. He reacted in exactly the same way whenever girls picked or teased him. Surprised, shy, but really, really liking it. He used to also instinctively drop to his knees in embarrassment. If he wasn’t already sitting down, I would have expected him to do the same here . As for SJH, notice her staring at him (softly?), waiting for his reaction. I don’t know about you guys, but the impact is stronger for me seeing her staring at him while he can’t see her. Whatever their true equation, these two are beyond cute! Have a good one, y’all! Credits as indicated. Thanks. Here’s another interesting exchange between SA. Waiting for subs. Credits as indicated. Thanks.

    I think KJK’s paired with Seolhyun, so he’ll probably be okay. SJH, maybe not since I think she’s with JSJ. Regardless, let’s enjoy the little moments, like this picture. Very “brotherly” of KJK with that lip-biting action. Credits as indicated. Thanks.
  11. SPARTACE COUPLE KimJongkook-SongJiHyo

    Some of you are looking for The Call. Sorry, I also don’t know where to watch it with subs, but in case you haven’t seen it, here’s a link to KJK’s collab performance on the show. Is this One Man, part 2? LOL. Sure sounds like it. I’m not saying this is in any way connected to SA as a couple. I just think it’s nice that SA are both doing so well right now with their individual projects. Always wishing both of them well. I’m so totally biased, but there’s just something special about KJK’s voice when he digs in emotionally. I listened to his parts with my eyes closed, and got goosebumps. I also wanted to do two things: 1) hug him because he hurts, and 2) slap him silly because he’s so dumb! I’m talking about his character, ofc. Have a good one, y’all!

    @oepiin, welcome. No worries about your grammar. And, we all understand your frustrations. Fighting!

    The song choice was especially odd given the fact that KJK’s segment was bright, airy, and Spring-like. Then, boom, the song comes on. The melody’s beautiful, but the message is sad. It’s about a long-suffering woman telling other women to be patient because their men are “hard to understand.” If I stretch this to fit SA, it’s almost like the singer (or wise woman) was telling SJH to be patient with KJK. He’s not Sparta or the Commander. He’s “just a man.” I think this is also a lesson to us fans and shippers. SA are human beings. Let’s appreciate the happiness they bring to our lives. Let’s be patient. Above all, let’s respect them for their choices. Let’s not get so frustrated that we forget to enjoy the sweet, little, hidden moments. That’s the hallmark of our ship. Let’s not abandon it. In case anyone misunderstands, I’m not talking down to you guys. I’m also reminding myself to breathe. Fighting, everyone!

    Hi, guys. It’s been a while since my last post. There hasn’t been a lot of SA news lately, but I noticed that some of you have tried hard to keep our ship afloat. Thanks for doing that. I’ve also noticed that we have some new members. Welcome, everyone. You’re in for a wild ride, but I’m sure you already know that. I just want to add my thoughts to what @Jitaeri, @purplehope157 and others said earlier. I’m sorry if there’s overlap. Frankly, after SJH’s “denials,” I’ve wanted to get KJK’s take on all the rumors. Given the latest “news,” I watched the MUD ep. Here’s what I noticed: KJK did not deny, instead he recycled his usual answer: SJH’s family. He doesn’t date family. While I appreciate his boundaries, how can I believe him when he came after HH, demanding to know why HH said ILY to SJH since she wasn’t family? Which KJK do I believe? The BP version or the latest MUD version? KJK did pick HJY as his “ideal,” but he’s picked someone else as his “ideal” for years. That hasn’t led to anything as far as we know. Also, iirc during his Member’s Week blind date episode, he explained why he repeatedly picked the same person. Basically, he used his long-time “ideal” as protection. Why start a scandal with another celebrity when he gets asked about the same one all the time? I’m applying the same logic to HJY: she’s one of three ladies KJK is often associated with. His pick can’t be a surprise to anyone, least of all shippers. He’s not going to pick SJH, since he’s actively trying to distance himself from her for whatever reason. There’s no way he’s going to start anything by picking LDH, KHN, or JSM. He already explained about YEH. The only one left is HJY. Of the choices given to him, she’s the safest pick. Conveniently, she’s also the guest MC. It’s always good to be nice to guests. While I believe that KJK likes and respects HJY, I don’t believe he likes her romantically. Before anyone accuses me of being biased for SJH, yes I am. That’s why I’m a SA shipper. Before anyone accuses me of being anti-HJY, I’m actually a big HJY fan. She’s the only female K artist whose music I actually pay for. I love music in general, but her and KJK’s music are the only K ones in my collection. Now, why don’t I believe she and KJK are a couple? KJK’s entire segment was an over-the-top, in the viewers’ faces, love fest for HJY. Again, there’s nothing wrong with that. HJY deserves all the love she gets, but I can’t help contrast KJK’s treatment of her with how he treats SJH. He spent nearly a decade side-stepping questions about his equation with SJH. In one episode of MUD, he, his posse, the MCs, and the moms, including his own mother, couldn’t stop gushing over HJY. Why hide his true equation with SJH all these years, if they’re only family members, but be so openly “affectionate” toward HJY, a hoobae and occasional colleague? I won’t speculate about the possible reasons. I’ll leave that to individual shippers, but something feels off to me. Someone already mentioned the very casual way KJK threw out compliments to HJY. While off-hand remarks can be a sign of long-held beliefs, they can also suggest someone’s lack of interest. I’m not saying KJK doesn’t like or respect HJY. He clearly does. But the stuff he says (she’s great, smart, popular, studies a lot, a great catch, his ideal, etc...) are basic stuff that idols and entertainers throw out all the time. He doesn’t seem to care what comes out of his mouth. He’s too busy eating. With SJH, on the other hand, the automatic and guarded answer is always “She’s family.” That’s it. My point is, KJK doesn’t seem to believe he has anything to hide about HJY, but he sure has a lot to hide about SJH. I wonder what that is. She’s only his “sister,” right? The vibes when SJH guest-MC’ed were different from those when HJY showed up. While I understand that SA may have had little control over what she saw and what he showed her, the staff sure did. I won’t go into details, but SJH’s segment was intense and sexy, while HJY’s was innocent and filled with aegyo. So, KJK thinks of SJH as his “sister,” but the staff shows him taking a shower and lotioning up? And, he picks HJY as his “ideal,” but the staff shows him going to brunch, shopping, and watching a movie? Did anyone notice that KJK’s segment started and ended with the very odd choice of Tammy Wynette’s Stand by Your Man? For some of you who are not music buffs, this is a fairly old, iconic American song that may have crossed over to SK because of the military. The moms may be aware of the song, but contemporary viewers may not. Either way, non-English speakers may not understand the lyrics. Here’s a famous part: Sometimes it's hard to be a woman Giving all your love to just one man. You'll have bad times And he'll have good times, Doin' things that you don't understand But if you love him you'll forgive him, Even though he's hard to understand And if you love him oh be proud of him,' Cause after all he's just a man Stand by your man, Give him two arms to cling to, And something warm to come to When nights are cold and lonely As I said, I’m biased for SJH. Hearing this song, especially the highlighted parts made me think of her. If we’re right and SA are real, just imagine the stuff she’s had to put up with as KJK’s GF. I love the guy, but he is a bit “hard to understand.” While the moms “fought” for both SJH and HJY’s favor, the only two who stayed on task in this latest ep were KJK’s mom and one other. KGM’s mom was visibly less active. KJK’s mom seemed to sincerely like HJY. She even made sure to tell KJK that. But, she was really anxious that SJH may not have liked KJK, even if it was just something small like eating an apple. That’s a crucial difference to me. While I’m sure KJK will hesitate to marry someone if his mom doesn’t like her, I hope he agrees that it’s more important that his GF/wife likes him. His mom may have given birth to him, but his wife will give birth to his children. Again, big difference IMO. One last thing: I wouldn’t be too concerned about any articles written by Soompi or another site. They’re more concerned about clicks, and have little interest in facts. I could go on, but I won’t. Sorry for writing so much. Stay tuned, everyone. Stay strong. You know this already, but always be respectful to SA, each other, and other fandoms. Above all, please ship happily. Edit: I forgot one point. Shorry started the Q and A in the coffee shop. He said he wanted to ask something, and KJK very seriously and emphatically told him to be careful. IMO, he was referring to anything connected to SJH. He wasn’t thinking of HJY, because he (and everyone else) sure were not careful about her. While a lot of the stuff they said was superficial, they did say quite a bit. In contrast, everyone said very little about SJH.

    She’s been wearing the same style of Buddhist rosary like KJK for a while now. It’s often visible on RM. Also, remember that time on RM when she stepped up to hold his rosary, while he “fought” with one of the members? There’s no doubt that SA are close. How close? Well, we’ll have to see, right?
