  1. Thank you for your feedback~ I used “could” because I am not sure myself. For me, there is simply no way to know! I have decided that my opinion about 503’s oozing chemistry and LSG and OYS individually will not be affected by this tiny detail. People are not robots or computer programs, they are not designed to respond to someone or something in a timely and definitive, clear-cut fashion. People could have conflicting feelings. They could get confused. Their response could be ambiguous, non-consistent. Their feeling could be fluid and transient. After all, that is what meant to be human beings. Therefore, I decided not to dwell on the “unnatural ness” of how the news broke and how the wording of the statement sounds and how strange things were the passed few days... I ship 503 couple because of their love story has touched a spot in my heart. It is not perfect, but it is so touching, heart-wrenching and sad. LSG and OYS have done a great job potraying the OG and Sanjang. I want 503’s love story to continue. I want them to have an happy ending. i ship LSG and OSY because I believe there are genuinely feelings between these two. And their character and personality and experience in life leads me to believe they are very compatible and would enjoy a lot of happiness together. If things eventually works out for them, that’s great. I will open a bottle of good wine and may even shed a few happy tears (oh, my old shipper’s heart). If it did not, it’s ok, not the end of the world. I wish them all the best in their career and all the happiness in life with their respective partners.
  2. Chingu, you and i have the same experience! I was mildly interested in the show because it is an adaptation of "A journey to the west" which is part of every chinese kid's childhood fantasy. Plus i was really intrigues by the pairing up of OYS and LSG, that is sth i could not imagine. Then i watched the presscon. And I was instantly sold. What follows was weeks after weeks of watching the episodes live without subtitle and re-watching with subtitle the next day... The timing might not be right at the moment, but who knows, the right timing could be just around the corner.
  3. I felt that LSG has showed her his sincerity and dedication as far as he could, given the restrain of his tight schedule, relentless focus on re-booting (not that his popularity dropped much while in army) his career post-military and the possibility that he might at some point had learnt that she was seeing somebody already. With his current priority in life, he is probably not able to start a relationship let along pursue someone (which is the most time/energy-consuming part of a relationship). He did not try very hard to hide his feelings about kiss scenes and how he loved working with her (or maybe he is just really terrible at hiding it?). To me, this is a way of showing sincerity and dedication without being in-convenience to the other party. After all, if you can't make an offer at the moment, or the girl is not available at the moment to accept, all you can do is to bank on those feelings and shelf them until they fades away or wait for the time when you can really make an offer. I don't know whether right time will come or not, but i surly as hell hope it will. Hope is a powerful thing. Cheers!
  4. Now i think back, i realized that I have shipped OYS twice already. I casually shipped her and her partner when she was on WGM in 2012. There were moments of sincerity and they showed some potential. I went through the same grieving process but it was much easier... This time is harder. Because this time i genuinely believed these two were meant to be together... Wow, i only shipped about 4 times and 2 times were about OYS... What is wrong with me... OTL Guess she really touched a soft spot in my heart. YS, you go, girl! I can't promise i will not fell to ship you another time (if there is ever going to be another time...) Although i felt nothing for your current relationship, i still wish you all the best in your career and life. Btw, this is not goodbye, ladies. I will still be lurking in this thread every now and then. 503 had left a long-lasting impression on me. Until time brings us back together. Ciao~
  5. It's be more than 48 hours since the news broke. It feels like such a long time for me and yet it was only 2 days... I felt compelled to write down my thoughts here in order to help me make peace with reality and move on (sorry, this post could be more about me than about either OYS or LSG...). Hwayugi has been a joy to watch (i followed the drama since 1ep), esp for the 1st 10 eps or so. The quality of the second half of the story line goes down hill really fast but the quality of acting of 503 kept going up, which is why i ended up following the entire show. I was (and still am) really into the on-screen chemistry between the two and started following this thread after the show ended. It's been a fun ride and became a outlet for me when i am facing a lot stress at work. I guess that is when i changed from a fan of 503 to a obsessive shipper of them in real. Big mistake, complete my fault. Not saying it's wrong to ship them (given their endearing personality and oozing on-screen chemi, who wouldn't?), but it's wrong to be obsessive. My grieving process quickly progressed from shock to denial to anger within a few hours. Anger at myself, of being so blind, of being so absorbed into a fantasy, and of being hurt from the breaking of that fantasy. Now I am in the bargain stage. Being a engineer for over ten years, bargaining to me is trying to make sense of things happened and rationalize what I saw and what I thought. I do not be believe in conspiracy. I believe in common sense based on life experience. I think OYS is indeed dating KB. The timeline could be skewed a little bit by the agencies' statements, i felt, but not the major facts. Giving the short time span between confirmations, this is more like a planned announcement or at least the agencies were informed by the new outlet who broke the news in advance (i heard that this is a quiet common practice in Korea tabloid). Which lead me to believe that the confirmation statement reflects the will of the people involved (OYS and KB), because from the agencies' standpoint, such announcement is best made in-between actors' on-going projects and social media buzz. With CITT only in cinema for 2 weeks and social media buzz about Hwayugi/503 still on-going, the timing of the news does seemed less than ideal. . However, in the standpoint to OYS, constantly being associated with LSG while already in a relationship with KB is awkward and even stressful. The same thing applys to LSG and KB. Confirming/announcing they are dating now helps to clear the water and put an end to the rumors. I admire OYS' courage and dignity. She stands to receive the most back-lash from this news. By confirming the dating news, she showed her commitment to her current relationship, helped to rid LSG of similar unpleasantness of being romantically associated with a co-star, at the expenses of her actress image and career (i think the impact is not significant but there still could some detrimental effect). That being said, I still believe LSG is intrigues and attracted by OYS. There is no point discussing how much is that attraction or whether it is induced by immersing in characters in the drama (i don't believe so) or genuinely by their real-life personality (yes!). Life is about timing, the timing of LSG and OYS was wrong. It could become right in future, who knows, or it could never be right. Personally, i wish fate could bring them back together, for another project or better even, for real life, because these two looks so right together (momentarily indulging myself to fantasy again)... Well, i think i have written too much rambling here... But hey, i feel so much better after writing it down! Word heals, indeed! I hope whoever out there hurt by the news, could heal soon and recall the one thing that attracted you to this thread. These are two very nice and decent person. And they are great actors too. They deserve our love and they deserve happiness in life.
