  1. Personally I am okay with shipping, only when you know you are 'shipping' - aka likely not real until proven otherwise. Saying things like 'they look good together', 'I wish they are together' are fine, but making it sounds like fact (e.g. they must love each other, he must be crushing on her, I hope he confess etc.) puts me off. One of my pet peeves are when people post interviews and they bold/colour the parts they think are hinting something. It is demeaning towards the artists themselves. I'd rather they just post the whole article as it is, people can interpret them however they want. Also, why are k-drama fans so vulnerable to clickbait article headings? Just because it fits their imagination? The damages shippers can cause towards celebrities can be much more than people think. Just look at Kuntoria. It was ridiculous. Been a k-entertainment fan for over 10 years and I am too tired of this richard simmons.
  2. My first reaction towards NJH and LSK dating: No wonder Jisoo has to go to his Hyungsik hyung instead lol poor thing
  3. @lingx2 @fionnoula @lovephs Thanks for the suggestions guys. Will check them out.
  4. Thanks for the reply however I find the soompi threads not updating frequently enough (this thread is more up to date than those two) - I am looking for places where majority of their fans hangout thus more up to date? Do they have livejournal communities? Their OH threads are super slow too...
  5. Can someone recommend places where I can get the most updates of PBY and PHS? Like individual threads at other forums or blogs or twitter or fan community etc that updates frequently. I would like to drop this thread - please do not feel offended - Just that the direction of this thread is not to my personal taste, nothing to do with you guys. It was great seeing everyone having fun discussions here. Thanks!
  6. If anything I think it is more like he got used to keeping his image like that after 4 years (since 2013) it became part of what he is. Yes he has been friendly with people he knows before that but he wasn't good with strangers, he even said so himself. He spent lots of time searching his own name and reading netizen's comments about him and was very conscious about how people sees him. With the post high society interview he didn't snap, it wasn't like he said anything offensive. He was just tired and less enthusiastic when answering questions, giving shorter answers - if it was another celebrity the backlash wouldn't be as bad (or it wouldn't have been a controversy at all) however because of his image people were expecting him to be bubbly all the time (what I meant by unusual friendly image), and that was what caused the problem. What I am saying is what he is doing is not the norm and what PBY is doing isn't that unusual either. Just that when you have PHS in the same trip as PBY people just subconsciously compare the two. Imagine if PHS is not there, people wouldn't say anything about how PBY behaves. People would be satisfied after her Vlive.
  7. that selfie with Heeji...he looks drunk lol PBY probably is just not in a good condition...either physically or mentally, or both. It is normal and common for artists to stay away from public eye when they are not in good condition to avoid backlash. If she appears in public and cannot hold up a happy smiley face it would be even worse for her reputation. Do not compare her with PHS because he is used to being an idol where they have to be nice and friendly even towards saesangs (unless you are well established aka EXO level), and on top he has this unusual friendly image he has to uphold as it was what got him popular in the first place (hence the post-high society interview controversy). When you think about it Jisoo is kinda half hiding as well and didn't join the rest and I am fine with that. This is meant to be a private trip afterall.
  8. Same... I am staying in this thread for updates
  9. No I never expect him to date LJY I think you kinda misunderstood my comment. I was just saying that's just the way he talks about the female characters and nothing new. I do think that the shipping in the thread has been going a bit out of hand in the past few days. Shipping is one thing, but making it sounds like fact is disrespectful towards the actors and actresses. Man to Man is taking over the spot. p.s. I am glad that I am a regular k-pop and k-variety viewer....I just go back to watching variety shows and music shows whenever I am done with a drama lol
  10. I agree with this. In fact I remember when Happy Together aired where he kinda hinted that he liked NJH (or her character) I was surprised by his answer as he was an idol and a pretty young one so I was like is he even allowed to say this? Or is the agency/drama production team letting him do this because they are desperate (as the couple was very popular among audiences-hence the legendary Bike Repair Shop CF). However as I watched his interviews after HS (particularly the videos), I realised it is his habit to express his love towards the female characters. In multiple interviews he emphasized how much he loved Ji Yi, and how he really wanted a gf like her. Only later on in written interviews he started friendzoning her.
  11. @ferily IMFACT and ZE:A are both from Star Empire, and considering they are the only two boy groups in the company I bet the ZE:A members know the IMFACT kids since they were trainees. The two group plus NINE MUSES(also from Star Empire) had held a company concert together before so yes they not only know each other but must be close to some extent.
  12. Especially that top right pic!! I was just scrolling then I saw that pic and I was like am I in the wrong thread!?
  13. His side profile resembles Siwan so much it is hurting my brain.... I am looking forward to the day where Siwan and PHS can act together.....probably only in my dream*sigh*
  14. After watching that BTS it reminds me of this again. The first time PHS met Kim Won Hae in a drama!!! A lot of you only recognize him as Woo Reuk in Hwarang, but they have actually worked together before in Nine Times Travel.
