    Fan Level: Hooked
  1. SPARTACE COUPLE KimJongkook-SongJiHyo

    I just saw the Soompi article and yes, I admit we are on a huge roller coaster. Just the beginning of this year, we all thought the ship was going to dock, and now I may not go so far to say there've been a pull back, but its been much less assertive and definitely quieter. Which I'm fine with the quietness because I dont expect all episodes to be SA specials. I would just like to share that I've been on this ship since late 2011 when I got hooked on RM. 6 years and counting. I think SA fans from those yesteryears would be able to say how much they've endured. I sat through the height of MC when practically every RM ep was some cheesy MC special. I sat through the period where JK himself actively encouraged MC moments to the point MC fans called him the 'MC ringleader'. I sat through MC being teamed up every freaking episode. I sat through periods where SA would not even be in the same big team for months at end. I sat through a live JK fan meet where he himself plugged YEH's name while singing the song which she starred in the MV. I sat through times where JK referred to JH as sister and family, and labelled her the RM member she is least close to because "she is Gary's". I sat through the whole Baek Chang Joo period where the SA ship held on even when JH was publicly attached. There were times literally, when every single positive SA news or action on screen would almost definitely be followed by a huge downer right after. I remember in the good old days, after every RM episode that had tons of SA moments, SA fans would speculate what the ensuing bad news will be. All I'm trying to say is, its a damn roller coaster right now; and even I have my moments where I just hope one of them just gets married (to whoever) so we can end all speculation. Those are my bad days. I know there's a lot of mixed signals so it's alright to get confused or even stay off awhile or permanently, its totally fine. But I just want to reassure everyone that mixed signals are, for better or for worse, part of being an SA fan's life.

    What Soya said is fine. Until the day JK reveals, she as the niece is not going to betray him and say something else. That'd blasphemous. She would have learnt well from 'even if I'm attached, I'll say I'm not' uncle. Uncle's best friend CTH was also the person who kept saying he was not attached, he's single and then went on to marry his high school sweetheart Soya likely admitted to having met JH before because it'd have been hard to avoid given that it was on social media. So that's the one tidbit she gave us

    It could also be the way SBS has handled this (as usual). For years, literally, casual viewers have been treated to a storyline of JK and JH being practically the two least familiar cast members with each other. While JH had the MC line, clearly noona-dongsaeng relationship with LKS, a bickering friends/siblings relationship with Haha, candy alliance/siblings with YJS and father/daughter with JSJ. JK was portrayed as real tight with Gary/Haha and their leader, Tiger-Giraffe with LKS, at odds with JSJ and the two leaders with YJS. But between JK and JH, there were literally no efforts to even give them some direction together. At best, they were the two cast members which casual viewers will bring up as being the best in missions. I'd therefore imagine that there's a sizable proportion of casual viewers out there who just watch what the show sells them, and do not know of SA as close. These are the people who do not peer at the background of scenes or follow SA and their friends/crew on Social media. I've had friends express utter surprise when I try to tell them SA are close, I've seen viewers see incidents from us very differently. For example, the one where JH and JK were sitting on top of a roller thing and hitting with pillows at each other? I know people who thought JK was absolutely violent in that scene towards JH and did not view the squished hug the same way we did. So for these fans to be suddenly thrown loads of information in literally just the last couple of weeks and forced to take in the information that SA are close, I can see why they will view it as a forced loveline. They did not get to see the gradual increase in interactions between SA that we saw. These have all been literally thrown in their faces. SBS may not be wrong in all these. They may be quickening the pace for reasons we do not know. But to the causal viewers, one can understand why they'd be rejecting it. Not to say that they're against the idea of SA being a couple if it's real, but more that they're tired of the way lovelines are forced down their throats and the sudden rush of it

    How long JK will be on UD remains a question mark and I profess to not knowing how long the MCs stay on that show. However, I think one thing can be certain now that we know UD is happening: the wedding (if any) was never planned for March/April. A wedding takes months, if not a year or two to plan, and I highly doubt that if there indeed was already a March wedding planned, JK would have taken up the UD offer. It makes absolutely no sense to postpone a wedding for a programme, and honestly if I'm the bride I'd be mightily pissed. So if UD is not going to be a long term thing, one possibility could be that the wedding is somewhere further down the road. But like everyone else, I'm concerned as to how much longer they want to wait, not just because I'm going absolutely waiting for years, but more for themselves. However, if UD is able to bring out a new angle of JK, like the moving out angle as mentioned, I'm prepared to see how that works out. JK has already been talking actively about this recently as his own step towards getting married so if SBS works it well (which I'm ever so doubtful about), I'm willing to give it a shot. In general, getting on UD, however long it will be for, is a good idea. It is a show which enjoys good ratings, and on the Big 3. I was just singing JK's Chinese song today at the karaoke and it hit me how much reduced JK's China activities have been. He used to fly there practically every week for something, to the point I was worried his body will break down. And now there's been a complete halt, presumably due to the Hallyu ban. So it is good to see that JK has been able to still continually find himself exposure back in Korea. I thoroughly enjoyed Dragon's Club but can understand how that show can be one with a niche audience as it could get draggy for people who are not invested in the guys. So getting another show as a sort of replacement and on a big channel as well will help.

    This is all based on my memory. But they went on the same flight to NYC, JK Purportedly went to the dramafever awards and JH was at a photo shoot. However, JK went on to Las Vegas and then LA, but JH was never accounted for since the photo shoot time. The next time JH was seen, was when she filmed a music video or something for kenji wu

    Trust me, me too. I was waiting for something else the whole day to come, whether it be a denial, an announcement or something. I have no idea who directed the PD to say what he did and whether it was SA-approved, but regardless, I'll take it at face value and take back the fact that indeed, it is now open secret that SA does hang out often enough IRL. It at least makes things more plausible if and when SA announce, in that, people cannot pretend to be surprised anymore. This interview was released about noon KST. By now, over 10 hours have passed and if SA had not known about this interview and need to deny it because there simply is nothing going on between them, they have had ample time to do it. I've seen agencies move much faster than this. If SA knew about this interview and approved it, there are two angles. One is that they are not together but are indeed sooooooooo close, so technically the PD is not saying anything wrong. But why would them, especially JK who is so concerned about his image, allow the PD to basically latch a potential scandal on them? If SA knew about this interview and approved it because indeed they are together, then this is part of the strategy to start paving the road. I wouldnt say that I've read a majority of the comments on social media; I definitely havent. But the negative sentiment is likely to be one of more pure sickness of lovelines or rather, blaming the PDs for using them as a tool to drive up RM's pathetic ratings, rather than an argument that SA should not be together. Which I think that's fine. In any case, even if there are haters (and there will be), I think SA is prepared to live with it. They will never reach a situation where everyone on earth is happy with them being together, so why wait and delay for the impossible?

    With the barrage of articles and sentiments, this is the perfect time and a 'must do" for SA to deny if they truly truly are not dating or together. Any other Korean celebrities would have come out to deny through their agencies by this point. So if we still do not hear anything from SA (or their agencies), the ship is sailing smoothly.
  8. SPARTACE COUPLE KimJongkook-SongJiHyo

    Ah yes, so specifically saying 'when I was studying in LA" seems very specific and gives credence to the statement. And we all know LA.................is totally a possible location for them. Any idea if there were replies to this person's post? The trips that JH made to the US thereafter were quite specifically for work and she didnt have periods of disappearance, unlike this 2015 trip. If I remember correctly, none of JK nor JH were also seen at the airport during their return. However, I've heard of this Santa Barbara hoodie thing, but UCSB is some 4 hours (or more) away from LA by car. It just seems a bit far away for them to go to.

    credit as above So JK has denied that he has a US girlfriend, and vehemently denies having a US girlfriend. But why is he not vehemently denying that e has a Korean girlfriend?

    Its not just that he turned red so fast. He started his "blink very hard" habit, which only happens when he gets all nervous. Like @athoughtcloud1 i was not expecting JH to be the one to name JK. What was she getting at! He'd better be very careful in March/April man, marry her or there'll be a price to pay behind that smile of hers! Unless we missed something huge, again, there has been no denial. I think the ship is sailing along very smoothly. There wasnt any of his usual "ani, ani" hand waving reaction, she pointed him out directly HERSELF, he just smiles and turns red. I still do not think SA will actually admit on RM itself, or turn themselves into a loveline (because seriously who wants that). But turning the tide and getting people receptive to the idea (instead of having fans behave like their admittance is a huge bombshell dropped on them) would be the best thing to do.
  11. SPARTACE COUPLE KimJongkook-SongJiHyo

    translated from Baidu: So the fortune teller says that JH has chances of a relationship in March-April. Then JH herself (!!) asks about her with JK this year. The fortune teller replies to say 85-95 points. Then JK said he should be careful in March-April then Dont know if this screenshot has any link, just found it adorable credit as below

    I take it more that other than having to be concerned about the livelihood of other people around him, JK has repeatedly said so many times (the one rare time he's actually very consistent about his answers when it comes to relationship questions) that he will not admit or announce anything until when he is getting married. By then, I take it to mean that he'll only ever announce when its a short few months to the wedding. So until that time comes, he's just going to flat out deny anything. So we may not get an answer until we're a few months left. This also seems to be the way most non-idol artistes handle their wedding announcements. While I also wish so hard for them to just admit so people can stop speculating, this is his way. I also chuckled when I read your other post about Jk continually digging his own hole when it comes to his very weak excuses. I'm watching in amusement as the hole gets deeper. For someone who is quite afraid of bad press, denying if if there really is nothing going on would have been the easiest way because JK of all people should know the repercussions of having a dating scandal plague himself for years. But really, three perfect opportunities presenting themselves to deny recently (twice by JK, once by JH) and none were used. A fourth's coming up this week, let's see what happens.

    Another translation just came in and it basically solidified what we think: He does not want to be another loveline ala MC and finds that embarrassing if he and JH are to be in one because they've known each other for so long and because JH was part of MC. So, he really has not denied anything. I think we've all heard the urban legend that JK was the first choice to do MC on RM but he denied one having just stepped out of X Man and FO with all his lovelines. We know what happened thereafter. So why would JK want to suddenly pick up a loveline now? And honestly, yes, it would be VERY awkward for him to JH to suddenly be in a variety loveline now because.............they wouldnt know how to react to a lot of situations. It'd be all sorts of awkwardness
  15. SPARTACE COUPLE KimJongkook-SongJiHyo

    So basically what I take from this is: - He didnt deny again. Even with another perfect chance - He used the boring old family excuse when he just told Haha recently that Haha's not really family with JH - I take the embarrassement thing as him not wanting it to be a "thing" on the show because he used MC as an example (which we all know is clearly fake by now). So as per what I'd always expected, I would not ever expect them to come clean and admit on RM, or at least during an episode of RM. I think a poster said above it could come through a prearranged deal with Dispatch, and I actually agree with that. I see that as a very high possibility
