  1. Hello to all my lovely Stargazers! I'm totally loving the scarlet I'm seeing scattered in the thread!! Apologies for my tardiness to the first anniversary celebration of our lovely JoonU ship, but I've been sick for the past couple of weeks. I even missed so many days of work, my manager thought I had quit! LOL. But backreading, it really warms my heart to see the consistent love and support for JoonU and for our ship. From the familiar faces (usernames) I've seen from day one to the newer Stargazers, each one of you are an important member of our crew and this ship wouldn't be able to sail if it weren't for your participation in showing your constant, unwavering support. I'm still strong in my belief that JoonU are perfect for one another and one day, perhaps soon, our ship will sail all the way home. Thank you for sharing your favorite memories of JoonU, what made you become a Stargazer, and for sticking by our ship through thick and thin. It's been a great honor to be your captain and thank you, also, for deeming me qualified to be one since I feel that being a captain is more than just about being the thread starter. Onward we sail, Stargazers! And may the fireflies light up the dark night to reveal the path towards home!
  2. Hey Stargazers! Please don't worry about the negativity surrounding us outside of our thread. I'm definitely paying it no mind at all, so just ignore it because THEY CAN'T TOUCH US! We know best the type of behavior we hold ourselves to when it comes to shipping JoonU, the respectful behavior, so the opinions of outsiders don't and shouldn't matter. The truth will be revealed in time for everything. Plus, there's no changing the opinion of butt hurt people no matter what we do, so why waste that time when it's better spent elsewhere? Like gearing up to celebrate MLSHR's first anniversary and shipping our JoonU?!

      It's real. All major K-ent news sites have posted it, including Soompi.

      Thanks.  I just jumped the gun and posted it to your account, even though it was meant for the group.  Anyway, thanks for responding.  Well, hope his smiles come back to him.  I loved that the best about Joongi and when he was with IU, it was so mutual that they would electrify the neighborhood.  Just my observation.

      Fully agree! Both of their smiles were the most electric when they were with each other. :D

  3. Hello Stargazers! What a ride we've had so far, huh? RL has been kicking my butt as usual, so I haven't checked in with y'all for a long time, but I've been keeping up with all the news. I just want to say how proud I am of our ship for handling the LJG-JHB break up news in such a respectful, calm manner and I'm glad that Soompi Stargazers can truthfully say that we are NOT part of the JoonU shippers that flood IU, JG, and/or JHB with disrespectful comments on their social media. I'm glad y'all are a part of this ship! When the time is right, may our ship sail in the direction it was meant for! Hwaiting!!
  4. KIM GO EUN X GONG JI CHUL ~ WELCOME GONGGO BRIDES ~ Gong Ji Chul (Gong Yoo) and Kim Go Eun first crossed paths on August 30, 2016 at the table reading of their mega-hit fantasy romance drama Guardian: The Lonely and Great God, also known as Goblin. Gong Ji Chul portrayed the 939 year old immortal Goblin Kim Shin, who wandered the Earth, searching for his bride to remove the sword in his chest while Kim Go Eun played his bubbly and charismatic bride Ji Eun Tak, who falls in love with him and gives him a reason to live. However, their story began long before Goblin was ever announced. In February 2016, Gong Ji Chul expressed his affections for Kim Go Eun as well as his desire to work with her. Kim Go Eun was also known as a self-professed Coffee Prince fan and looked up to him when she was younger. Of course, this was just the beginning of their destined fate. Over the course of a five month long filming period, Gong Ji Chul and Kim Go Eun developed a very close relationship, despite their age difference of 12 years. Stunning drama-watchers from all over the world, their chemistry not only amazed viewers but those around them. Their on screen love broke cable rating records and trended on Twitter for weeks on end. Despite Kim Go Eun being officially in a relationship during filming, it was later revealed that she was single at the start of Goblin's filming period, allowing her to pursue a close relationship with Gong Ji Chul. The two have kept in touch through group chats and have been rumoured multiple times to have been in a relationship. While Kim Go Eun's agency has denied this, Soop Management which represents Gong Ji Chul has never commented on the matter, leading to much speculation that there is indeed a relationship. Red Strings of Fate has ruled their relationship. From friends, family members, and even co-stars, destiny has brought them together and connected them in ways that seem impossible. When they describe their desired partners, it's very clear that they are perfect for one another. As GongGo Brides, we all wish for these two to openly pursue their amazing love. They have both shown affections for one another for months now, from before Goblin, to the presscon, all of the behind the scenes and even the wrap party. Their relationship has given many hope that it has progressed to something more and everyday is a new discovery on this ship. Please join us and help steer this mega-yacht to Love Island. DO NOT REPOST THIS PICTURE ANYWHERE WITHOUT DIRECT PERMISSION FROM ME (Credit to JaneyBae for the above photos, which will be replaced within 24 hours) ~ KISSES ~ ~ A FEW RULES ~ Guide for all of the new passengers onboard our ship: Ship GongGo however you like, but make sure to follow Soompi rules and the rules of all sites you choose to ship on. Just make sure not to harass, stalk, or harm Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun and play nice with other shippers! Don't do anything that Kim Shin would disapprove of. ~ OUR END GOAL ~ ~ SHIP ON GONGGO BRIDES! ~
  5. Happy holidays, Soompiers! December is always a super fun, super exciting, and all around amazing month because of the holidays, the beginning of a new year, the chance to see some beautiful snowfall, the various award shows for music and dramas, and, of course, Soompi’s Annual Holiday Hunt Event! If you’re a repeat participant, then welcome back! We’re happy to see familiar faces! Errr… I mean, names. If you’re a newcomer, then welcome to twelve days of fun! We’re happy to see you here! Now, here’s a breakdown of how this event works: Every day at 12:25pm PST from Thursday, December 15th through Monday, December 26th, a hint will be posted in this forum thread. Using that clue, put on your holiday hunting gear and search for the blue present box that will be hidden anywhere within the Soompi forums. The gift box will be big and noticeable, but… only if you’re in the right place! Each clue will only be up for that one day, so please make sure to save your answers in a safe place until it’s time to submit them at the end of each round. I repeat, each clue will only be available for ONE day, so save, save, save! (Our recommendation is to write down the thread name and page number of where you saw that sneaky gift box, copy the URL, and/or take a screenshot of the present.) In total, there will be four rounds with each round lasting three days. At the end of each round, a Google Form will be posted, also in this forum thread, for you to submit your answers. You will have only one day after each round to submit, then a random person with all the correct answers will be selected, via the draw-a-name-out-of-a-hat method as the winner, which means that, at the end of the Holiday Hunt event, we will have a total of four winners. This year, our prizes will be a SIGNED Lucky Romance OST, an Uncontrollably Fond drama poster, a Cheese in the Trap notebook, and a one month Viki pass voucher. To make things fair on which winner gets which prize, on Tuesday, December 27th, I, akinahana89, will send admin, benightedxflame, a PM with a number between 1 and 50. Then, on Wednesday, December 28th, each of the four winners will send me ONE guess on what that mystery number is. After all guesses have been submitted, the four winners will be invited into the PM between me and benightedxflame to see what that mystery number was. The order of the winners will be ranked by closest to the mystery number without going over and will be matched to the order of the prizes as listed above. Without further ado, THIS is what the blue present box looks like: And if you’re more of a visual, need-an-example kind of person, this is for you: For more examples or to familiarize yourself with the holiday hunt process, take a look at last year’s thread here. This event is open to all Soompiers, but please don’t be a grinch and ruin the fun by soliciting and/or providing the answers. Gentle hints are acceptable, but it’s no fun if the answer gets posted in the public thread! (If you’re curious about the answers, it will be all be revealed at the end of the event, so hang tight!) And now… let the games begin! Ready! Set! HUNT!! [Round 1] [Round 2] [Round 3] [Round 4]
  6. ~ W E L C O M E ★ S T A R G A Z E R S ~ Lee Joon Gi and Lee Ji Eun (IU) met for the first time on January 8, 2016 for the script reading of their historical romance drama, Moon Lovers - Scarlet Heart: Ryeo. Joon Gi portrayed Wang So, the 4th Prince of Goryeo, and Ji Eun portrayed a modern day woman, Go Ha Jin, that gets transported back in time to the body of Hae Soo, a noble lady. Filming for the drama took place between January 20, 2016 and July 1, 2016, giving Joon Gi and Ji Eun the opportunity to become close with one another. As Scarlet Heart: Ryeo was airing on SBS from August 29, 2016 to November 1, 2016, it was also revealed that Joon Gi and Ji Eun had kept in touch after filming on a daily basis through a cast group chat. From the contents of the drama itself, the various BTS photos and videos, and the multitude of interviews before, during, and after the airing of Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, Stargazers were blessed with the ability to watch JoonU's relationship progress and bloom. From mere co-stars to incredibly close friends and, now, to the possibility of something more... every day is filled with wonder and excitement as our ship slowly sails on a journey towards our destination. Our crew and passengers come from all aspects of the K-entertainment world: ★ Eclipses Fans of the original Bu Bu Jing Xin and/or fans of the adaptation Scarlet Heart: Ryeo that fell for JoonU's chemistry. ★ Uaenas IU fans curious and supportive of the comfort level IU has with Joon Gi, the unique sparkle in her eyes when she's in his presence, and the chemistry between JoonU. ★ HaJunSe Joon Gi fans investigating his odd and out of character behavior, for the first time ever, when he's with or mentioning a co-star. In this case, his Scarlet Heart: Ryeo leading lady, IU. ★ JoonU Fans of both Joon Gi and IU that were pleasantly surprised at the pair's unexpected but explosive chemistry. ★ Stargazers A combination of all of the above. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ L e e ★ J o o n ★ G i Actor ★ Singer ★ Model ★ April 17, 1982 ★ Blood Type B ★ Namoo Actors The Hotel Venus (2004) ★ Flying Boys (2004) ★ The King and the Clown (2005) ★ Fly, Daddy, Fly (2006) ★ May 18 (2007) ★ Virgin Snow (2007) ★ Never Said Goodbye (2016) ★ Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2016) Nonstop 4 [Guest] (2003) ★ Drama City: What Should I Do?
