  1. Past hour
  2. Yes, even those, I don't want to fast forward... Every scene is to be enjoyed to the max! LOL 596
  3. So I just finished episode 22 (43-44). I thought this drama couldn't get any better. Since the second half of the drama started, it has been a rollercoaster ride for me. The intensity just keeps building up. It's so hard to choose a favorite scene because everything in this episode (as with the last few ones) are just so good. Yet I especially love those scenes between King Yeongjo and his two highest officials, Minister Min and Chief Justice Jo. These two men who have always been his staunchest and most vocal adversaries, who used to insult him to his face even as crown prince, now looks at him with admiration, respect and awe. I felt like crying every time King Yeongjo overcame a challenge and they would look at him with a mixture of disbelief and respect. It's as if they now find that they are humbled when Yeongjo proves them wrong and shows himself as worthy to be king. Their king. I realize now that what makes Yeongjo different is that he is a leader who listens. He doesn't take offense easily, because he is humble and always tries to understand where the other party is coming from and why they think the way they do. He doesn't force his will on them, but he isn't beyond commanding or bypassing them altogether when necessary. And he speaks from his heart and isn't afraid to be among his people, as what he showed at the height of the plague scare, and when he spoke to his army. Every time he made a speech, I felt like crying with pride, and whenever the faces of Minister Min and Chief Justice Jo, and everyone who knows Yeongjo were shown, you could see that that was exactly how they felt. @oceluna I've always had that nagging feeling that the loss of Yeo Ji will be the one personal tragedy that Yeongjo will experience in the midst of his triumphs as king. He has won over his political opponents. He has earned the loyalty and respect of his subjects. His friends and allies somehow survived the battles. But we all know that somehow, somewhere, something's got to give. Between Yeongjo and Yeo Ji, there's always been that notion that what they have is fleeting. And the words that Yeo Ji's always said to him, of her promise to stay by his side to protect him always and that she would rather be the one hurt than to have him hurt...I have a feeling she will make good on that somehow. Yeo Ji's way of showing her love for Yeongjo is through her skill, her reliability and her effectiveness. Judging from the way it has been going since it started its second half, I'm sure this drama will give me an emotional high, then break my heart with Yeongjo and Yeo Ji in the end.
  4. work related? perhaps a photoshoot for a magazine I thought Shinhye purely visit Oppa Shinwon. ----------------------------------------------------------- Park Shinhye enroute to Hong Kong for Swarovski event She's super duper gorgeous!!! cr: liveen TV
  5. I've watched eps 13/14, but haven't watched eps 15/16 yet. Looking forward to it since I'm curious about the debate scene. I just need a quiet hour to do so. I love this drama! Will also have to find time to catch up on FP somewhere. +2
  6. @turtlegirl..thank you for the live recap...kamsahanida..and all the chinggus posting excerpts of the video..thank you again. All of u are life saviors..chinccaa...hehe Just a few things..based on my very little Korean and observation: 1. I think Ryan found out about DM is RTS from the last pic of them together (the very pic that made all of us go crazy over the OTP....hehehe). Before he submitted the pic to RTS, he deleted that one but somehow RTS via DM mistakenly uploaded that very pic, implying someone else had the whole stock of the pic SJ took during the date. I guess he put two and two together after realizing that no one else could have access to that pic since SJ and DM had promised secrecy among the 3 of them. He could have not guess SJ as RTS since SJ has a family and probably he believed that a homma is someone who is so obsessed of a idol that she could not have been married. I thought that CUPATCH was Ryan at first until DM seemed to deduce that Sindy had created another persona to "spy" on her in her site and since CUPATCH kept on uploading a day to day report of R (Ryan) and S (Seong Dok Mi) activities to her reader. 2. The man they met had collections of self-portrait which tell certain stories of his life. And that, according to DM, what makes his art work special because even in that one self-portrait of him, he seemed to tell a story of someone saying goodbye. The man overheard DM's description of his portrait and I think he was quite surprised that DM manage to capture that just from that picture of him. I think that is why he decided to show his collections to them and asked them to evaluate the value of his art work..I think 3. Someone mentioned about the bathroom scene to be very quiet. In fact I think the whole episode today seemed to be very quiet with very minimal background music or even OST. Not sure whether that was because of some technical error or was done on purpose though. 4. Ryan Gold @ KJW will never ceased to amazed me with his acting and gazed. Chincca.. He is definitely in my list of "man I need to find for myself"...hahahaha...
  7. @nohamahamoud2002 There were two reasons for the mass killings: First is the fierce competition in the presidential elections at the time, with the gap in support ratings between the two candidates being a mere 3%. If the pregnant mistress of leading candidate Cheon is revealed by the opposition party, the scandal would tip the balance in the opposition candidate's favour, giving them a free ticket to the Blue House. Prosecutor Guk's job is to ensure that this does not happen. The other reason is the fact that the residents of the Cheon Guk Welfare Center have exposed the wrongdoings of Pastor Wang and Baek Do Gyu in their letter to Prosecutor Guk, which also voiced their concerns about the "vitamins" given daily to the children. The so-called vitamins are actually children's antibiotics which are being manufactured and sold, and the children are being used as test subjects of clinical trials to test the side effects of the antibiotics. With the mistress being sent to hide out at Cheon Guk Welfare Center, the mass killings of which she is a victim, serve to silence her, and divert the public's attention from any rumours of a pregnant mistress to the terrible tragedy, thus ensuring no scandal rocks Candidate Cheon's election campaign. In addition, Pastor Wang and co. are able to get rid of the people who threaten to expose all their dirty secrets, including illegal clinical trials, abuse, murder, thus enabling them to escape punishment for their crimes.
  8. @triplem (hate myself for tainting this thread with FP lol. Imma do it anyways) but I was suprised as to how many pages we have go through on FP lol. So I joined the FP thread at about page 7. Then now we have 72 page worth of items . It’s very hard for a drama to get to this decent amount of pages. I’m shocked! 594 @ktcjdrama Hiiii! With you saying, even those scenes with dialogues...it really reminded me of the rose petals for some reason lolll
  9. @willenette, I agree! Our Minho completed his service quietly, without controversy. And despite his hiatus, he's still the top Hallyu star! K-entertainment world is so ready for his comeback!
  10. Her update today.. "2019 Profile B-cut" I wonder how the A-cut will look like because this B-cut already so beautiful.. Hope E&T will share them with us soon And her manager share her lovable video
  11. so it has been years since i posted in a forum but this drama really revived something in me and so here i am but anyway, i live-streamed ep 5 just now and as expected, the episode didn't disappoint me one bit. this drama just gets more and more exciting for me. and this is coming from me, someone who had low expectations for this drama (just because i'm not a really big fan of rom-com in general). only watched it first for kim jae wook but in the end i watched it for the whole cast and basically the drama itself! anyway, i wanted to talk about this particular scene which happened in ep 5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dj4pJYGACTE&t=9s can i just say how much i love this scene? the toilet scene in particular. i love the fact that there was zero bgm and all you could hear were water dropping, the rustling of clothes, their breathing, their stares oh my god i was really about to scream when that scene appeared and mind you, my face felt hot HAHAHA it was just too hot for me and the sexual tension was palpable. i can't even begin to imagine when they finally kiss. will i survive? lol one thing i really appreciate about this drama is the chemistry between the main leads. aaahh anyway, the preview for ep 6 looks exciting. i think there will be more misunderstandings because of the new character (ryan's friend)? lol one misunderstanding gets solved, another appears it seems.
  12. Only managed to catch up just now. Yes, plot twist galore indeed... just as one "repented", another one decided to cross over to the other side. I am so enjoying the character Park Hoo Ja. She is really one smart woman. I was so shocked actually with the false lead that was dropped for MY. I couldn't believe it. Btw, I envy the way PHJ ate the cake @stroppyse Do watch FP. It's a drama that I would rewatch without wanting to skip any scenes at all. Even those scenes without dialogues are so engaging. 592
  13. A bit late, and still haven't seen all of the last episode as yet, but here is a translation on the preview, though I'm pretty sure that subs are out. JG: Yesterday, Candidate Han said this to me. HSJ: I don’t remember that. JG: Why he’s suddenly changed his words… HSJ: I don’t remember that. JG: You did say that! Definitely. HSJ: I have never said that. JG: Hyung-nim! (basically calling HSJ "wife's brother", however, the term could also be one of respect for an older brother-like man) HSJ: Concede! HJ: I am someone who doesn’t do anything that doesn’t make money. Detective: Why is he here? MY: What are you saying? Why is Na Son Bom alive? PGN: In exactly 5 minutes, the results of the second poll will be revealed. If you fall more than 1%- HJ: You’ll have to give up your brainstem. I told you at the time, that if you’re going to play games with me, then you should stake your brain on it when you do so. Hmm, so JG seems to be tied up by HJ and her minions because JG went off script at the debate. So, the penalty for that is that if that results in JG losing further ground, then HJ is threatening to kill him. Whew, HJ does not play around. I know that JG won't die since this has been pitched as a comedy, but I can see how it probably looks like a terror-filled melodrama from his point of view.

  15. KNG has turned down doing Pirates 2. SYJ in the past said she would do a Pirates sequel but only with the original cast. I recall SYJ turned down Boston, 1947 around the time the producers announced the movie project.
  16. South Korean superstar Lee Min-ho set to return after military service, fans can't contain their excitement The 31-year-old actor is most famous for his roles in Korean drama series 'Boys Over Flowers' and 'The Heirs' South Korean superstar Lee Min-ho, who is currently serving as a public service officer as part of his mandatory military training in Gangnam District, will be discharged on April 25. MYM Entertainment, the agency that is home to the actor and singer, stated that "he'll be quietly ending his service with no special event." Min-ho, famous for his roles in 'City Hunter', 'The Heirs' and 'Legend of the Blue Sea', injured his thigh in a car accident in 2006, following which he had to serve as a public service worker. Min-ho started his military service as a public service worker (gong-ik) in May 2017. He then entered the Korea Army Training Center in Nonsan, South Chungcheong Province on March 15, 2018. The actor completed his four-week basic training on April 12, 2018. After those four weeks, he returned to his workplace again as a public service worker at Suseo Social Welfare Center in Gangnam, Seoul. Min-ho first became famous in South Korea and other parts of Asian after his lead role as Gu Jun-Pyo in Korean drama 'Boys Over Flowers' in 2009. Korean singer/actor Lee Min-Ho attends a press conference for a commercial event on September 11, 2014, in Taipei, Taiwan. (Source: Getty images) With the 31-year-old actor's discharge date coming closer, fans are super excited and preparing for his comeback. While some say that he would rest after the discharge on Thursday, others are confident that the K-drama star would be going back to work. There are also reports saying that the actor is likely to join Park Shin Hye for another installment of 'The Heirs'. The 2013 show's plot revolves around a group of rich teens who are about to take over their families' business empires. But Shin Hye has dismissed all rumors of the show getting another installation anytime soon. Although this has left fans disappointed, Min-ho is also rumored to reunite with Jun Ji Hyun for 'The Legend of the Blue Sea 2' -- a Korean drama series spun around the fantasy romance between rich kid Heo Joon Jae (Min-ho) and a mermaid called Shim Cheong (Jun Ji Hyun). The television series was a big hit in 2017 and has got high ratings. https://meaww.com/south-korean-star-lee-min-ho-return-from-military-training *************************************************************** 10 K-pop Idols Enlisting & Being Discharged in 2019 Actor Lee Min Ho Korea’s original heartthrob Lee Min Ho will too be making his return from enlistment!

  17. Ohh i thought it was about monotonic life, everything is in order, plain, black or white, and suddenly feel it is enough and finally break through and transcend.
  18. I'm totally with you. lol This kind of feeling is rare indeed. I want to ride it all for sure. So, I've made another round of gifs from BTS.
  19. Yes . Love how the drama champions the underdog and the main message is about redemption & forgiveness . So even when it seemed like the situation was hopeless, the characters had small victories along the way. Yes KNG deserves the praise but it would not be as good if not for the writing / directing and the other characters . All had opportunities for character development & were given their moments to shine . A feel good drama at the end of the day . I enjoyed it . 590
  20. New vid from JTBC for our couple! Still can’t get over it. Lol! Enjoy your copy specially the BTS! Just to add up, SHJ is in talks to star in a drama alongside with RMR! Now, out 1st and 2nd leads are working on their next drama!
  21. You are welcome, @dianah de guzman! Our Jiwon is such a versatile actress but I would admit her weakest suit may be Romcom. But that being said, she gives justice to her roles and I love her in "The Time We Were Not In Love," and "Life Risking Romance." Her partner in the drama @dianah de guzman, LJW of TTWWNIL is also single, and they shared great chemistry (IMO). No dating rumor between them however, he said that HJW is one of the actresses he wants to be paired with. Over the years, there were quite a few actors who mentioned HJW as their ideal. Go Soo, Oh Ji Hyo, Joo Sang Wook, to mention a few. Now, they are all happily married. Maybe naming Jiwon as your ideal gets you married, hahaha. I will find the link to share it here.
  22. Lol at the pic of Ryan! OMG I can’t wait to watch this Thank you all for sharing!
