  1. Past hour
  2. For the last part about talking to his adoptive parents, I saw some friends here discussed that when RG talked about his adoptive parents to SDM, he used something like past tense in Korean like they no longer exist or pass away...
  3. Whoot..he finally posted one with PBY . Why does it look like a date? You know, swing and all..ha ha. Looks like we'll be seeing CM and SY in a date soon
  4. Hello to all initially I didn't wanted to start the drama this soon cause waiting thing is difficult but to deal with my withdrawal symptoms as I am currently watching Hpl I needed some good drama and when I searched the team behind it without any doubt I clicked it.I had loved this director previous work even though his last project sitr went downhill in 2nd half but overall I liked the drama.I see people comparing it with sitr yeah may be the setting and ambiance kind of give the same vibes (I consider it as director signature work)but story here is different at least the female lead has stronger character and Jung hae in as a single dad makes it more alluring.I love how realistic this drama is,stories that you see around in your own societies not to forget the taboos attached to the issues like this.From what I can observe that giseok and Jung in are basically living in a loveless relationship for past years one can literally feel in their conversation ,there is no heart to heart talk between them and Jung in friend too pointed out in first epi. yeah it's not like couples have to always say love u and other sweet things but you can feel there is no warmth and fluttering moments in their relationship even when they are together.when giseok talked about marriage it was like a casual talk and marriage it not just about living,eating together what giseok said and I understand why Jung in said is he doing this just so that it can be 'convenient'.Jiho introduction in her life is kinda like catalyst she is now forced to think in what kind of relationship she is staying with giseok and them getting married only cause they had been in long rel(I can feel that's the only reason at least for giseok).Her not telling Giseok about the bank account thing (many pointed out why she lied and it's a sign of cheating)made me think that actually we don't know in past how their relationship was and Jung in sister saying he is kind of assertive in nature can imply that may be he didn't like this kind of thing (I mean jiho was basically a stranger )so I am not judging her right now.One good thing is that she told him that she needed some 'break'.She is curious about jiho and may be bit attracted but she isn't sure herself whether it's love kind of thing or she just felt more attentiveness and warmthness from jiho (The chopstick scene gave the vibe that giseok ignored that her chopstick fell but jiho noticed )and want to at least have this kind of person as her close friend with whom she can share anything without being judged and pitied. I liked that both Jiho and Jung in are being honest with each and don't mind pointing out each other when they are wrong.I hope in the coming episode things would be cleared between Jung in rel with giseok if she wants to pursue rel with Jiho more than being friends.Its too early to say what kind of character they will become in future. Beside that I liked sisters bonding and even if their father cause problems in coming episode I would like see Jung in standing strong on what she wants. Sorry for such a long post .
  5. Beautiful OTP! They are so cute! I hope we will be seeing a lot more of them in the drama
  6. Yes 1st letter of each line spells Lee Yeon-Seo going down and across it said. and one more at the end was Silly stuff Thanks for sharing this link in the ALM:L thread, @immorethant but it really belongs here, and even among all the beautiful pages we've collected here, this one belongs in kind of the 'hall of fame' of posts. What an incredible, remarkable and simply a beautiful achievement by everyone including Shin Hye-Sun the prima. This is a piece of television history, and even after 3+ years here, I just am dumbfounded that she's come this far. @Man-O-Man Welcome! That reminds me to shout out to couple of chingoos that should be here - @Daisy Str and @cadymcbronzie where are you girls??!! This past week and the start of ALM:L has been the culmination of everything we'd ever hoped and wished for for our Shin Hye-Sun-ssi, and you should all holler back if you're alive and well, even if you're not able to watch everything or read everything for RL reasons. We should be celebrating! This gif may not be a good one due to its jerkiness, but I love looking at her fingers and arms here - something so very painful and tragically beautiful about her.
  7. Yeo Jin Goo has definitely left an impression on viewers in SBS’s “Absolute Boyfriend.” “Absolute Boyfriend” is about special effects makeup artist Uhm Da Da (played by Girl’s Day’s Minah) and the romance that begins when she meets Zero Nine (played by Yeo Jin Goo), a humanoid robot built to be the perfect boyfriend.

  8. Whoa, Park Hoon is a good fit to the vampire-masked's features. Sigh...one is already out of hands last season, now we got two???? Three if we count BJS who hasn't been found dead yet BTW, the one who killed Yukiko used different mask, a plain white mask. Is he a different murderer too??? Ohhh...this rings a bell for me -----> City of Accomplices!!!! OMG! It doesn't just the name the Commissioner came out for the special investigation team, but it is literally a city of accomplices - the Auction Favre. Like really high-ranking kind of members, BJS's upper hand. And we shouldn't forget about the old man in the car. I think he is the Master of all. The three masked man - plain white, vampire and black mask are all his second-in-command. Doing all the cleaning work and the dark web's operation. It's gonna be a long looonnggg week again waiting for next episode I hope the preview was not just a tease to us, and we really do get to see the villain's face. That has always been the best part of Voice series
  9. I was trying to search for HPL related and the preview for Episode 15 appeared. Just hoping that it's not a long 'separation' between them. In Deok Mi's perspective, she must be feeling guilty towards Ryan after knowing and remembered he told her that the hands that left him outside the orphanage was coldly, she felt the pain for him. 2 more days to go till Wednesday~
  10. I am not worried about any breakup. It is more about DM and her mom and her feelings of shame and guilt about her mom's actions towards Ryan which Ryan will not allow. For Ryan, it is more about understanding and healing his relationship with his mother. I do think he will understand why he was left at the orphanage door. Remembering that incident and facing it bravely will perhaps make him confront his fears, his sadness and even anger which could be his road to healing and forgiveness but it will never be about his newfound relationship with DM. He has found the foundation of his heart and hearth. Ryan, as we know him does not easily give up. Remember how he protected DM and SJ thinking that they were in a relationship? Here and now, it is his own relationship that we are talking about. He will protect that. DM too, in the last episodes soothed, comforted and loved him through Ryan's emotional distress. Now it is Ryan's turn to reassure DM that his love is as deep and lasting as hers. How could anyone doubt and think of breakup??? I have faith in the two and I think EG, dimpled, handsome EG will be the brother to reassure and make DM understand about her mother's actions. He afterall had to deal with his emotions about what his mom had once thought of doing long ago but did not. So, I see no breakup but healing of old misunderstandings between parents and children which in turn strengthens DM and Ryan's love. I do hope Ryan has a scene where he communicates with his adoptive parents by text or email telling them about his new relationship and finding his mother. Not much just showing a communication with his adoptive parents.

  13. I recently discovered this forum after watching “This is my First Life” and “Father is Strange”. The TIMFL script was very good but what made this unique story believable was the gorgeous and talented actress Jung So Min. She is an amazing actress to watch with solid performance. She nailed her character and set the tone for the drama. I was so impressed with her acting so I looked for other shows and discovered FIS. Wow, what a fantastic show - this is the best family drama I ever watched. So many powerful stories meshed together with many different characters, dynamics and emotions. Not a dull moment Like many in this forum, it was easy for me to sense that the relationship developed between JSM and LJ goes behind good acting. It was explosive chemistry and at some point it felt real – beautiful couple. Reading through the posts in this form I gained respect for the couple. I hope the relationship will survive the hardship and the challenges they are facing and come out stronger together – if that’s what they desired. I really admire the courage that LJ demonstrated by enlisting even though he could have picked an easier path as well as being open about his problem and his willingness to overcome the disorder. Same goes for JSM for standing strong until now. Like many, I am curious – and concern - to find out what the current status is, however I do understand why they will want to keep it private for as long as they can. They both deserved our respect. I am a fan now and will continue to support and watch more of their shows.
  14. i'm going to re-watch the last 2ep of BTIOFL in order for me to understand what you mean but every Preview they show keeps on misleading us.. you will notice the VO shown is always mismatch with the scene they view,... check the preview from past episodes and you will see the similarities... they always deceive us in the worst way possible. but as for the story, i think it was blessing in disguise that RG got adopted in order to meet DM as a curator... coz if RG will stay with DM, he might became part of the family like EG and here we come the childhood friends become rivals (another cliche story) fighting for the girl they like.
  15. Source: Chungmuro Crumb "I almost caught her... Don't go. Let's walk further. Over there, side by side...".Too bad this scene never made on screen.. i wonder how many scenes that they never been aired..
  16. Ahh, I finally got the chance to finish this drama Thanks everyone, love reading all your thoughts. Everyone makes mistakes, it's how we recover from the missteps that gives hope for this world, for our future. I really like how many dark night scenes, where things and events were confusing and uncertain, often visually framed with a full clear lit moon. In fact, there seems to be repeated shots of sunlight (which often illuminates the goodness that is Sun Ho) and moonlight (which highlights the troubled soul and intense emotions of Joon Seok). The sun shows up the same way everyday, strong, courageous, dependable.. and in many ways, Sun Ho is the same, in the way he treats others around him. He's all rays of purity and happiness. In contrast is Joon Seok who struggles to control his emotions while learning to define himself, his character and thoughts swayed and shaped by adults around him. That is not to say that he is innocent but his aggressive and violent nature has the capacity to change under the guidance of the right adults. I like how the sun and moon became symbols of those two who once were best friends. As is to show they are connected not only in a good/bad way but in their respective emotion maturity. This drama was so good at reminding us to listen and be attentive to our youths. To help them navigate through this challenging time to learn adulthood, to live with pure heart , to treat others with kindness and hope. I will always remember how Dong Soo paid forward Moo Jin's kindness by mentoring a lost Joon Seok. How Dong Hee blossomed into a confident person for herself and protector of others, including Joon Seok. How Moo Jin learned to not compensate courage with kindness. How In Ha took to heart her husband's resolve and character to follow the laws even if it seemed unfair many times. How Soo Ho's love for her brother fueled her strong conviction. How mistakes are important for character building - what Eun Joo should have allowed Joon Seok to experience and correct. Was an important drama that I am glad I didn't miss. See you in another thread.
  17. Just give us the full version BTS of morning scene and lipstick scene as episode 15/16. Drop that almost break up part to the 4 mins bts clip place.
  18. @TheRoadtoPMY the OTP here is so mature. They truly talk. So I hope the writer won't pull something out of character at the finale week... =-= Actually I loved Touch Your Heart OTP interaction, too. They trust each other so much...so I never got WHY suddenly Lee Dongwook's character pulled a noble idiocy toward Yoo Inna. Wasted two good episodes.... =-= Anyway... The scenes on Deokmi's house were the ones I saw during filming....
  19. May 27, 2019 Bong Joon-ho wins Cannes Palme d’Or ‘Parasite’ director is first Korean to win the festival’s grand prize Source: INSIDE Korea JoongAng Daily Director Bong Joon-ho holds his fist in the air to celebrate winning the Palme d’Or at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival for his film “Parasite.” Bong is the first Korean filmmaker to receive the prestigious award. [YONHAP] Bong Joon-ho became the first Korean director to win the Palme d’Or at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival on Saturday for his latest film “Parasite.” “I was just a timid, awkward film maniac who wanted to become a director ever since I was 12,” said Bong during his acceptance speech for the film festival’s highest honor. “I never thought this day would come where I would be the one holding this trophy. Thank you.” At a press conference for the film held in Seoul in April, Bong shied away from the possibility of winning the prestigious award. He said he thought that “Parasite,” which explores social class issues, was too specific to Korea for overseas audiences to fully understand, and that there were other prominent contenders for this year’s competition. “Sorry We Missed You” director Ken Loach and “Young Ahmed” directors Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne are all two-time winners of the Palme d’Or. “A Hidden Life” director Terrence Malick, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” director Quentin Tarantino, and “Mektoub, My Love: Intermezzo” director Abdellatif Kechiche have all won the award before as well. Despite Bong’s concerns, the Korean sentiment that is portrayed throughout the film was one of the reasons why the director won the prize. “We all shared the mystery of the unexpected way this film took us through different genres and spoke in a funny, humorous, tender way - with no judgment - of something so relevant and urgent, so global in such a local film, with such a beautiful efficiency of media, and an understanding of what film really is,” said jury president Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu at the post-ceremony press conference. Inarritu confirmed that Bong’s work received a unanimous decision by the jury. Bong started to make a name for himself with his debut feature film “Barking Dogs Never Bite” (2000), where he caught the attention of local audiences for its representation of social hierarchy and conflicts related to the generation gap. “Memories of Murder” (2003) was both a financial success and praised by the critics for its gripping serial killer story. His third work, “The Host,” was a box-office monster. Over 10 million moviegoers went to the cinema to watch a creature portrayed using then-advanced CGI technology arise from the Han River to terrorize Seoul. After he became recognized by both local and international audiences, Bong recently worked with big-name Hollywood actors, such as Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Steven Yeun and Chris Evans for his films “Snowpiercer” (2013) and “Okja” (2017). “Parasite” had the local media’s attention for being Bong’s first Korean-language movie after a 10-year hiatus. “Every time I came to Cannes the film [I was in] received an award. For ‘Secret Sunshine’ (2007), it was Jeon Do-yeon who won the Best Actress award, for ‘Thirst’ (2009), director Park Chan-wook received the Jury Prize, and now it is Bong’s turn,” actor Song Kang-ho said while he gave an interview at the festival.
