  1. Okay, clearly I'm behind the times. I only realized that Ji Hyo now has an official Instagram account. But . . . why is KJK not following it?! My shipper heart is trying not to read too much into this.... *quivers*
  2. Thanks for sharing your thoughts @stroppyse; it was a treat to read. I'm glad you were able to eventually find your way to this thread. And to everyone who else who hasn't yet voted -- here's your reminder, as we head into the final stretch: Vote! Vote! Vote! But vote only once.
  3. Ep. 361. Ji Hyo don't think we didn't notice you poking and feeling up KJK's arm before the arm wrestle! I'd recognize that white/red striped sleeve anywhere.
  4. Bumping up the thread to remind people to vote, vote, vote!
  5. Others have already mentioned the moments. Just the fact that KJK had knowledge of her bro and made sure to share them.
  6. Was it just the site I was watching ep 360 on or does it really end in an abrupt manner? With this many guests and such a long intro, I figured it would be a two parter, but even still there's usually an ending to help transition to the next week. The videos I keep finding online just end mid arm wrestle, it seems. Also, I really loves hearing that KS, JH, and KJK went drinking together. Eee! And so sweet how KJK had nice things to say about JH's brother.
  7. Late to the party but finally watched this drama after reading the novel it was based on. Loved both versions a lot! And now I've such a crush on He Yi Chen. It's hard to move on. Ah, the plight of a drama watcher....
  8. It was originally billed as 46 episodes, which is why you see that number on so many different sites containing information about this drama, but in the end, when Tecent Video released their episodes it was 21 for the first season and 23 for the second. You can visit their original site for confirmation.
  9. Omg @thunderman1!!! I can't believe you actually took a sick day. LOL! Something I've only ever dreamed of doing but never actually dared to do so. I'm impressed. Please post on the PWY thread or send me a PM. I watched it when it aired so it's been a while since I've seen it, but I loved it sooooo much. Always happy to chat about PWY. As for Fox, looks like subbing has picked up this week and now they're up to 11 (Season 1). I don't want to jinx things by getting too excited, but this is definitely a move in a positive direction. I too wish it would be subbed faster so that more people could enjoy. I'd do it if my Chinese was better, but I have just enough knowledge to understand and get by, but wouldn't feel confident about subbing an entire ep for others. Plus it's so much work for me... I got a taste of that when I was doing recaps for Master Devil, and those eps were shorter than FS. But FS is great... I really loved first season. I found second season a little lacking in that zippy chemistry that was so prevalent in the first season, but that had more to do with the narrative of the story than the characters (or actors) themselves. I guess there's some truth to what they always say about couples who get together too soon before the end... the story just loses its steam. And instead what we got was the external drama. Fortunately, I was still invested in all the characters and wanted to know how things would turn out -- that's what kept me watching and even still, I can't stop thinking about this drama. Heh.
  10. Happy anniversary, DotS!!! For those who were following my DotS fanfics last year, I just posted my third (and final) chapter to "Just in Time" on Asianfanfics. Originally envisioned as a short story about the days leading up to the birth of their first child with KMY waiting for YSJ to return home from a mission, the second chapter showed the two of them handling the actual birth. This new, third chapter, is about them settling down at home with the baby. I hope you like it! http://www.asianfanfics.com/story/view/1126723/just-in-time-songjoongki-songhyekyo-dots-descendants-descendantsotsun-kangmoyeon-yooshijin
  11. Yes, he appears to have an allergic reaction to lies. (According to drama descriptions for his character, he's a human lie detector.) It usually manifests in sneezes, but in the beginning at least, he seemed to have stronger reactions towards LYS's lies. Hence the slumping over her at their initial meeting during the blind date fiasco. It's also why later on, he sometimes avoids looking at her when he demands an explanation from her (even going so far as to cover her eyes on one occasion) because he's afraid she'll start spouting lies, causing him to have a physical reaction. As for his germaphobia, if I had to guess (in my completely non-medical background opinion ), I'd say he's on some OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) spectrum. According to his doctor, his issues likely stem from childhood trauma. Pertinently, he can't seem to recall any of the details surrounding his parents' death. Once he figures that out, I think a lot of problems will be resolved. It's interesting to read that you think LYS is disrespecting him and his house rules. I honestly never considered it from that perspective, although I can understand why you might feel that way now that you've pointed it out. I don't think she's mocking him or belittling him though. I think for the most part, she's just being herself, which is a disorganized, messy person. In the beginning, she also just doesn't understand him and his quirks, and thinks he needs to loosen up. As she gets to know him though, I think she is more sympathetic. One example of that would be when he catches her in her office one evening, when it's just the two of them, she's got disinfectant and napkins handy to give to him. But above all, I think what makes them work so beautifully is that they balance each other and make up for each others' weaknesses. A great example of that is with the lollipop. Once, when they were hanging out together, she dropped some on the floor before offering him one and he objected on the grounds that it'd touched the ground. She could hardly believe his reaction given that the lollipop was entirely wrapped. But then not long after, he saved the little girl from getting hit by a car, and in return she picked up the lollipop she'd dropped and gave it to him. The secretary was all shocked and amazed that he would eat it after it'd touched the ground, but he just pointed out that it was entirely wrapped and repeated LYS's words at him. Similarly, in that last episode, when he goes to the neighbor and asks him to help LYS out, the neighbor comments that main guy has changed. And then he suggests that main guy think about who it might have been who helped him bring about those changes. But I'd argue that they're both influencing each other, and that's what I love watching.
  12. Hi @cdcotr, loved reading your thoughts. Thank you for sharing them. I finished watching the first 21 episodes as well, and thought I'd take a stab at answering some of the questions you posed. And putting this under a cut because my reply turned ridiculously long!
  13. Bwahahahaha... I just knew they were going to have twin daughters. YESSSSSSSS! Well. That was one of the happiest endings ever to a drama. What a cute and sweet ride this has been. I think I watched that last hour with a perpetual smile stuck on my face. I will miss having this drama to look forwards to on Fri/Sat nights. Sigh.... (And seriously, Park Hyung Sik. Why must you be so good-looking, why?! ) And thank you Soompi thread for letting me spazz with you all.
  14. Awwwwww, you know how when you're watching a drama you often think to yourself, "After everything they've been through, I wish we could just get one episode where we get to see them just being HAPPY together before the drama ends." Well, I feel like that's what we got in Episode 15 of DBS: Happy, Happy, Happy, with more Happy piled on top. And it was GREAT. Especially since, for me, it's the chemistry between the leads that carries me through the show. Honestly, I kind of gave up on the plot a while back. With all the mysteries revealed so long ago, I trust the baddies will be caught in the end, so each week, I watch for DBS and AMH because PBY and PHS are rocking it in their roles. They're so fun and so great, and I just loved seeing them being in love, being cute, and truly enjoying each other's company. The dash of jealousy served on the side didn't hurt either. Having said all that, I think my favorite scene in all of episode 15 was the one where AMH went to visit her mother at the cafe. I just love how he rolls along with them. He's going to have the best time as that family's son-in-law! Finally, I want AMH's toys. That is all. Haha!
