    I actually sort of agree with the reviewer's comment about how KJW somehow "steadied" PMY's acting, although it's not exactly the term I would use. I remember thinking at one moment, although I can't remember which moment it was, in the latter half of the drama that PMY's acting somehow felt different, and I felt like it sort of had a KJW ~influence. Someone on another forum commented that KJW's acting had a similarity to Mads Mikkelsen in their "stillness", which I agree with (even the way they talk, a bit!) and I think that's what I felt at that moment in PMY's acting as the show progressed, and which I appreciated. It's hard to explain, haha. I think what KJW learned a lot from PMY was the comedy side of it. I disagree with the reviewer about PMY being uneven at the start; I somehow felt that it was KJW sort of finding his footing with the character and the comedy in the first couple or so episodes. I don't think the writing helped him either, but I think that's partly why I felt like RG had a personality transplant (a 90% transplant maybe) after that. In one of the pre-show interviews KJW praised PMY's comedic ability and how he thought that with rom com you needed to have a lot of expression, and that she could go through several expressions in the space of a second. So that seemed to be something he was trying to learn from watching her. (Btw I love the way he praises her acting in detail, like it's coming from someone who really wants to excel in their craft and appreciates the excellence in other actors.) So I think they both learned from each other, and isn't that the best kind of partnership, when you make each other better? Even when you're already good, there's always room to grow. And better yet, it looked like they had a lot of fun in the process.

    Please help to spread this video, it’s very convenient that a video which is trying to provide a second perspective to this scandal has barely any views while the videos that slander Kyo have millions of views. The title is “SHK and SJK related blind items...surprising even for reporters” The vlogger starts off by saying that since both parties have not released any concrete reasons for separation rumors are getting out of hand. He was especially surprised when he started to see major news networks reporting SJK’s hair-loss being because is distress caused by marital problems as if it were real facts and news. The vlogger points out that though it may be a strange thing to point out but it is common knowledge that SJK wasn’t an actor with a lots of hair even prior to his marriage <he posts pictures of SJK’s head and I’m sure many of you can google pictures and see the truth>. Therefore the vlogger says in his personal opinion he found it very surprising that such things were being reported. He therefore interviews 3 journalists who share their thoughts in an anonymous fashion. 1st journalist is a woman who says that she was very surprised when she started reading about SJK’s supposed hair loss caused by marital problems, mainly because he is an actor and such news is too sensitive for someone to share with the public < what I understood from this is that she didn’t think anybody who means well for SJK would share such a story about him because it can severely affect his career... after all there aren’t many bald Hallyu superstars>. She said hair-loss is a private issue and can have lots of reasons, therefore to say with such conviction that his hair-loss is because of one such reason seems to be irresponsible. She also added that both parties must be going through a very tough time as it is and people ought not to indulge in self made sensational theories. 2nd journalist spoke on the issue of a rumored Chinese sponsor, she said that when she first heard of the rumor she found it ridiculous. After all SHK is a Hallyu star so where is the question of someone like her having a sponsor but with all these videos popping up on YouTube and seeing how so many people actually believed such outlandish rumors was a shock for her. SHK is a top star since the day she debuted, such actresses don’t need sponsors < sponsors are actually needed when someone needs help with their career>. She is a star who has received love calls < love calls in Korean means when people want to hire you for work opportunities> from Hollywood and China, definitely doesn’t make any sense for someone like her to be attached with rumors of any sponsor. 3rd journalist says that the most popular theory seems to be that SJK is furious because SHK and PBG had an affair. In her opinion this rumor sounds like the creation of someone writing a drama or someone who has watched way too many dramas. She also added that PBG was first cast in BF and when it was announced that Kyo would be the female lead, SJK called the former to tell him to work without feeling uncomfortable < in my opinion the journalist is sharing this since a lot of Korean and International netizens are criticizing PBG for being thoughtless in accepting a drama with such an intimate romance with SHK. The journalist is pointing out that PBG himself was already attached to the project from the beginning and even SJK never had any problems regarding the project and it’s story>

    So in the preview, KJW warns Dan that if he continues he will end up like him, YS is making a list of all the things she wants to do with Dan in the remaining time, some of the things is a date and a picnic ("Meet me outside in 30 minutes. We're going on a picnic.") and she also says: "I want to do everything there is with Dan" - I admit that the moment I heard it my mind was totally in the gutter and the first thing which occured to me was that she wants to make love with him.

    If I should describe ALML with one word it would be SATISFYING. The drama knows what it is and knows what it wants to achieve. It has the right mix of romance, angst, hurt/comfort, suspense and mystery. It manages to be unpredictable and exciting while being able to satisfy the audience's expectations. It just spirits you away into this fantasy romance between two people who are both so beautifully human. And when I say that they are beautiful I don't mean it in a mere physical sense of the word, even though they totally are, it's that they are beautiful through and through and I think it's what Dan means whenever he calls YS beautiful - it doesn't mean that she is perfect or flawless, it means that be it her weaknesses or her strengths, he loves everything about her. So I just want to send to the cast and crew a round of applause for they wonderful work and for bringing this wonderful story into life:

    So let’s get this straight after going through all the rumors dumped on us in the past one week, we are supposed to believe that 1. Kyo’s “sponsor” is a super powerful Chinese politician and yet he can’t keep a few journalists in Korea quiet? 2. Kyo has a secret child somewhere and her boyfriend since 2015 who later became her husband didn’t know? 3.The same guy who was attached to her hip since 2015 till 2018 didn’t know about a secret child? 4. Her sponsor and she didn’t need to meet up for years? At least not from 2015-2018 when the husband “left her”. 5. Her powerful sponsor allowed her to get married? 6. Her super powerful sponsor doesn’t seem to be getting her any work in China or Hollywood. 7. Kyo can’t speak Chinese, How do they communicate about the terms of the relationship? Maybe they have a special translator for jobs like this. 8.Then the husband was so angry about a “secret child” with a “powerful Chinese politician” that the couple stopped living together in later part of 2018 but his anger finally exploded in the month of June 2019? 9. Many “journalists” know about her “secret child” ( which btw isn’t even a very good secret since so many people seem to know) which must mean that this is common knowledge in Korean media circles and not one of these good, honest journalists thought to warn the boyfriend/husband. 10. Despite having a husband, “a sponsor” and a secret child.. she also had time to have an affair with her co-star? WOW 11. She has a secret child that everyone knows about but apparently Korea is such a nice place that nobody has exposed her out of “respect”?

    Good night everyone ! The best kiss scene of this episode. Hopefully we will see this again as the ending scene of the drama. (credit @EteruART twitter)

    Personally, I love today's episode. I think there were enough OTP moments and this was a much needed build-up and development going into the next stage of their relationship - where YS knows Dan's true identity. I like the fact that Hoo made YS forget about the incident because it allowed her to find out on her own, it allowed Dan to actually say to YS who he is instead of it being revealed without him saying anything. Dan was so angry at Hoo for tinkering with YS memory and it showed us how much he wants to tells YS, how much he wants to tell her the truth. And the final scene was perfect because he could have chosen to deny it and he was tempted to deny it - while he was making the decision there were two flashbacks, basically the angel and devil on his shoulders, two different choices: Hoo telling him that the moment YS learns he is an angel their relationship will end because of it and, then, the flashback of YS telling him that she trusted him until the end. And in the end, he chooses her, chooses to tell her the truth no matter how much he is afraid of her reaction and the consequences, and gives her the power to decide for herself. Once again he chooses her. And that is why I think this episode is so wonderful because without it we would never get all these wonderful moments and I'm not even mentioning all of them. SO now, Dan has made his choice, now it's YS's turn. And I think that she will be totally awesome about it.

    I'm actually fine with TM and MG's relationship. It seems to be a relatively healthy one actually where there is some push-pull still, and they're still figuring out which compromises they are willing to make for the sake of being in their relationship. It is a bit of a reverse trope, I guess, in the sense that TM is the more career-focused one while MG seems to be more emotional. However, I don't think this is a reverse Candy trope since MG is the head of his own music production company rather than running numerous part time jobs or studying to into civil service or an entry into a corporate job. MG just knows that he wants to be with TM. He also wants to be married and he makes that clear, but it's not a deal breaker for him with respect to his relationship with TM. I think it's okay for him to want to be married and to hope that TM will want to marry him some day, however, it's clear that it's the relationship with TM that is important to him rather than being married in itself. He's not about to break up with TM just so that he can go find someone who will marry him. TM has reasons why she has ruled marriage out for herself, but then again, she also has other taboos that she's crossed already such as their age difference. It's clear that she loves Morgan. If she continues to refuse marriage but wants to be with Morgan for the rest of her life anyway, cool. However, if she decides that she wants to provide him with that legal security blanket of marriage, I'm fine with that as well. To paraphrase a marriage proposal from an old movie (Up Close & Personal) between two people who live together: Woman: I want you around in the morning. Man: You already have me in the morning. Woman: I want to know that you're legally required to be there. Anyway, for me at least, the love between TM and MG isn't in any doubt. So, I appreciate seeing a bit of their ups and downs, and their silliness and playfulness. I think couples in real life can be silly; their silliness is just not out on display to a tv audience. Even DI being added as not quite a third triangle doesn't really phase me. It's clear that MG does not have any attraction to DI, and it doesn't seem as if he ever did. Rather, it's the affection of seeing a classmate from a long time ago. I do think that DI may be used to drive the point home further to TM, though, that MG is a gorgeous, talented, desirable man, not just by the women in the office who she probably doesn't even register, but to a woman that TM likes. So, the drama may use TM's burgeoning jealousy as a way for her to think that she wants MG to "legally" be by her side as well. I mean, everyone knows that a legal relationship is no real barrier to breaking up for any reason they want, after all. Especially now after the media storm of the last few weeks. So, not trying to disrespect anyone's opinions of whether TM and MG's romance is dead or alive or interesting even. Just putting my viewpoint out there that I do enjoy their romance and see it is full of the small issues that couples go through. I'm just so happy that it's not a random piece of makjang or a serious re-use of any drama tropes. I'm also liking where GG and JW are going in their relationship. Scarlet and JH are the ones that I'm having trouble understanding why Scarlet is so resistant. It's not as if she hasn't been in any other relationships before after all, but she is really resisting JH. Btw, nice to see your comic strips here @Ahpheng.

    Hello, everyone! Long-time Hye-Kyo admirer here. Like most of you here, I was blindsided by the divorce news. I was surprised and hurt by how the divorce was announced and worded by the other side. I consumed their divorce news like a glutton, I guess that was my mistake because I ended up frustrated and hurt by the mudslinging and speculations all directed against Hye-Kyo. So, I decided to come out of the woodworks and show my support. I just want to put it out there that there are still a lot of people that stand by her. An Open Letter to Song Hye-Kyo: Dear Song Hye-Kyo, You don't know me. I barely know you. What I know about you is maybe a collage of the characters you've portrayed in 2 decades. Yet, I know how it feels to be blindsided especially by someone who promised to cherish you. I know it's hard and painful, but keep your beautiful head up and be the graceful and classy person that you've always been. I've admired you in several Korean dramas, but I've admired your quiet demeanor and sophistication all the more. You've got one of the most beautiful faces on earth yet so unassuming and humble. Despite being in the public eye, you don't owe people anything. If anything, show people that there's bravery and grace in silence. Actually, it takes more courage and restraint to keep silent when all you want to do is to "put a lid on it". Just remember that empty cans make the loudest noise. Being the patriarchal society that SK is, it is to be expected that KNetz would dump on you. People will celebrate your downfall because they envy you. Remember that people pull you down because they're beneath you. I don't know you and you will probably never read this, but I just want to send this to the universe that there are still people who are rooting for you and will help you get back up, brush the dust off your knees and face the world again. #songhyekyo #fighting #behindyou #aroundyou #withyou An Ode to Fearless Women (Nikita Gill) "Defined by no man, you are your own story, blazing through the world, turning history into herstory. And when they dare to tell you about alll the things you cannot be, you smile and tell them, 'I am both war and woman and you cannot stop me.'"

    Translation of Kim Myung Soo's interview (from Naver's video). (my apology for any mis-translation). Good night , sweet dream everyone !!! Q: How long you have been being Angel Kim Dan ? I started shooting since February. Now it's passing the middle of June. Actually preparation period is longer than that. If I count, I think it's almost half a year. Q: Do you think Kim Dan and Kim Myung Soo is synchronized (similar) ? Actually , now it's almost...because I'm doing the drama acting. Being Kim Myung Soo as a person, and have been acting as Kim Dan character already 6 months , now it becomes almost similar. In fact it's not like that, even if it's the same person but now I lived as Kim Dan every day per week , being as Kim Dan for 6 months and taking a little break as Myung Soo. Even doing this interview right now it feels like being Kim Dan doing the interview. Umm..it would be right to say 100 percent (similar), probably right to think like that. Q: Being Kim Dan, talking about attractiveness of the character First , Dan personality is honest and he can't lie, also being nice friend. Second, as time goes by, his character can also show various of new appearances Actually, being Kim Dan character, at early , middle and the latter episodes of the drama each provide very appealing charm. I think everyone who watched ALML from heart can fall in love with the Kim Dan's attractiveness, more or less. Q: How was it being angel who watched human's world ? If speaking as Dan, each individual humans are working hard for their living. Each person is trying to live a good life, aiming for the best of their lives, isn't it ? Q: Tell us how is Kim Myung Soo in real life Kim Mung Soo, to put it this way, is very funny. His personality is very shy (korean phrase said 'hiding face'). Also I think he's quiet, modest person. Actually I didn't know myself well. Now being Kim Dan for half a year, honestly I don't really know what kind of person is Kim Myung Soo ? The certain thing I know is that Kim Myung Soo half year ago was a very modest person. (Note : I just want to highlight this because after 6 months being with Shin Hye Sun, now it seems he has changed from a shy, introverted guy to be more open personality. It's a power of love ) Q: Black Dan vs White Dan which one is more attractive to you ? Ah.. both are equal, so difficult to distinguish. Both have attractive apperance of Dan. I think at the latter episodes , there will be more appearance of black Dan. Personally I'm also in the middle of shooting that. I think I'm a little more attracted to White Dan's appearance. Because Dan is cute like puppy, right ? Very lovely like a kid for all fans who love to watch a cute drama. He is such companion who sticked to Yeon Seo like a key ring. It's a cute apperance, but when I think of that, all of his aspects are charming. I have a feeling that white Dan is more of my style . (bonus)

    Well, there was the dream sequence, and after that when only YS could see him Dan basically reverted back to being an angel just like he was in the very beginning when YS could sometimes see him and sometimes not, wearing his handkerchief and all because according to the order from the deity he actually did complete his mission successfully. The last touch when he finally touches YS is basically the reversal of the "breath/kiss of life" from the first episode when he could not touch her but this time he can and I think there was another similar scene where he touched her but she couldn't feel it. Actually, I loved the parallel between the final scene and the first episode. I thought it was beautiful, poignant and fitting because it was ending the way it began, the story coming full circle with Dan following YS and touching her thinking she can't see him, only this time they are no longer from different worlds and can finally be together. What's more it's on the their bench and the very same OST is playing. That doesn't mean that the writer couldn't give us some 10 minutes of their HEA life. The final episode had some amazing moments it's such a pity the writer couldn't deliver a stellar and satisfying WHOLE final episode.

    Hi All, Thank you for your posts, comments, and thoughts. I am always delighted reading them all, so insightful as well. I just got carried away having watched the bright and soon-to-be happy family on episode 13-14 to be torn apart in the next week's episode. But as some of you mentioned, yes previews are often misleading. I believe that our OTP will get the happy ending they deserve. I hope we can get over the angst part soon next episode. As I read s.o's comment on social media, the angst is like spice, which can make the food more appetizing to eat. I believe happy ending will taste sweeter once our main leads overcome their struggle together. I just cannot help but noticing that the writer really did a wonderful job to challenge common gender roles in Asian countries. For instances: man is usually the one who proposes (some of us including me here predict that JH will be the one who proposes JI right?), boys cannot cry (JH cried quite a lot in this drama and it is necessary to do so), man is the one who actively takes lead in their relationship (but here JI is the boss: hugging him, crossing the street, etc etc). And not to mention wonderful sister's and mom's characters. The writer portray women as strong and tender loving characters here. I'm loving it! I believe in the next episode we can witness how strong SI is when she divorces her nasty husband. Cannot wait for this! Pluus, I love that this drama show very natural scenes here and there. For example: when JH failed to kiss JI across the table, JH could not stand carrying JI to put the book on the shelf, the pin wheel was broken in the middle of the way (they stop and mend it), etc etc. I will miss this drama for sure!

    So from what I understand, Dan has been refusing to marry YS so much because he knew that he's going to die soon. However, when YS "disappeared" on the stage and Hoo came - Dan heard the sound of wind and as Hoo explained to him it's the sound of death and death has been YS'S destiny from the moment Dan saved her on that bridge and ever since he's been protecting her from it and delaying the inevitable. According to Hoo, it is inevitable that YS dies and it's pointless to fight against destiny even if Dan argues that we make our own destiny. Have I already mentioned how much I love him?! So that is the moment, Dan decides to marry YS, to truly give her everything and use every second of the time they have. I love how they are both dressed as a bride and groom when he proposes

    Goodbye kiss ? But Dan’s still smiling. https://n.news.naver.com/entertain/article/112/0003181237 ALML crew said, "After knowing that Dahn is an angel, the romance of Yeon Seo and Dan comes to a new phase and another beginning. In this process, Dan tells important stories to Yeon Seo. This will play an important role in the progress of the relationship between Yeon Seo and Dan." ** So it's confirmed that Yeon Seo knows he's an angel, not a pervert cult angel . Such a relief.

    To me, JI started dating GS because he asked her and she had no reason to reject him. Since she said that they were never lovey-dovey from the start which was confirmed by her colleague and friend YJ, I suspect that JI had no strong feelings for GS, when she accepted GS as her boyfriend. She just went with the flow... her sister got married to SH and SH was an acquaintance of GS. She might have thought: "why not?", since he showed interest in her. As for GS, JI could help him not to feel lonely as he had to give up his dream and his friends. Notice that he returned to his friends, the moment he realized that JI was leaving him. This is no coincidence that he visited his friends from the band. Right now, I don't think, he chose JI because she was strong-willed because she never showed anything like that before. She let him rule her life. I also noticed that when she felt uneasy/unhappy with GS (episode 1), she never voiced it, she remained silence which GS noticed. However, JI gave up and said that this was nothing. I have been watching the episode 1 again after knowing the evolution of their relationship, we can clearly see that JI had never expressed her feelings in front of GS that's why GS could often threaten her with the break up... she never expressed her disappointment. She allowed him everything therefore he could say that she had always been lenient towards him. To sum up, GS and JI never loved each other from the start that's why their relationship was doomed from the start. IT has nothing to do with a long relationship. In the first episode, JI even prefers spending time with YJ than with her boyfriend (first scene and in the scene 19:00 in the car). GS even chose work over her.

    Shin Hae Sun Kim Myung Soo They Met At The Beginning Of This Year (2019) They made our hearts beat by uploading selfies with each other on their individual IG accounts. Note: They haven't done this with any other lead. Shin Hae Sun: About her chemistry with L, Hae Sun said, “Myung Soo has said this as well, but we were comfortable with each other from the start because we come from the same neighborhood. We quickly became friends and respect each other as friends on set. That’s why it’s not uncomfortable at all to film together. Dan and Yeon Seo [their character names]’s romance has just begun, and I hope that people can look forward to how their story will unfold. I think that we can show an even better chemistry than before.” Kim Myung Soo: About his chemistry with Hae Sun, L said, “When I first heard that Shin Hye Sun would be appearing in the drama, I thought that she would be a driving force for the show and I really wanted to work with her. When we started working together, I was happy that we were a good match. I think that the audience will be able to tell that our chemistry gets better as the drama goes on.” Kim Myung Soo thoughts on working with Shin Hae Sun for the first time? "Noona left a great first impression. She is bright and friendly. When I was young, I lived in So-Donggu and it turned out Noona was also from the same neighborhood. When I shared with her the name of the food stall that I always went to back in school 10 years ago, she would know it! It was really fun! That's how we became close." Do you call her 'Noona'? "I mix it up. I sometimes call her by her character's name Yeon Seo and sometimes, I call her 'Noona'. Our age difference is just 2 years, so we are comfortable as friends using informal language." The Curious Case of 'Touching' or 'Not Touching' : They also say you make good partners if you sync : But all of this is incomplete without Hae Sun blushing : Bye! Wink, Wink! Happy Shipping!

    It's a lovely ending, though I still have the final episode (32) to watch. At the meal with the mother and the sisters, was this exchange. SI had been saying that she wanted to meet JH since JH is the experienced one when it comes to being a single parent. And, then they have this exchange. SI: How did you endure it? JH: Even though I had said just awhile ago that my parents had raised him, Eun Woo my child. He’s trusting in only me in this world as he lives, so I couldn’t crumble. It’s the same for Jung In-shi. She’s come this far by just trusting in me, so whatever may happen, I have to protect her. This last bit caused all the women at the table to tear up because it's such a beautiful, heartfelt expression from JH as both a parent and a partner. JH's character is written as flawed, but so capable of deep emotion and sentiment. I've gleaned enough from the thread that this drama will hold to its slice of life way and not wrap everything up neatly, but that seems fitting with the overall mood of this drama. Plus, this director has a way of hinting at endings that the viewer can interpret themselves rather than giving a definitive wrap up in keeping with his ethos of life going on and things happening even after the story told by the drama is over. I wasn't active at all on this thread, but I appreciated reading people's thoughts when I did jump on. So, thank you. This drama is definitely going to get a proper binge watching the next time I have a free weekend.

    The fountain kiss was a letdown for me because it didn’t deepen the intimacy between Dan and Yeon Seo. On the other hand, I adored the first kiss as it was a beautiful and fitting first kiss for an angel who only started to learn about physical love and the second kiss combined with Dan’s confession of love was a natural and poignant follow-up. However, their kiss in the rain made me finally realize why the fountain kiss felt so stilted and why it wasn’t more passionate - DAN WAS HOLDING BACK HIS DESIRE AND HUNGER FOR FOR YEON SEO THE WHOLE TIME. And it was for the same reason why he didn’t want to marry her in the first place, fearing he would disappear soon and he didn’t want to take from YS something so important as a wedding or first lovemaking. He knew that if he couldn’t control himself he would end up making love to her which is exactly what happens after he literally devours her in the rain. You can pinpoint the exact moment when the sheer disbelief disappears from his eyes and Dan realizes that despite everything Yeon Seo is going to be finally his. When he completely loses control and the tight leash on his longing for YS, it’s as if a damn broke and he becomes utterly insatiable, consumed by his love and need for her. There is so much intimacy, urgency and intensity in that kiss and it shows how much Dan and YS are desperate and needy for each other. The bed scene is achingly beautiful and I love it to bits but, at the same time, I have never wished more that kdramas were rated PG-13 in which case we woud get Dan and Yeon Seo stumbling into the bedroom, all wet and needy, tearing the soaked clothes off each other,…

    Just fairly recently, I comforted a chingu who is a huge SHK fan. She told me that during Encounter's promotions, she noticed that SHK's gestures or over-all behaviour seemed odd. Lo and behold, little did we know it was a portent of things to come. Normally, I feel unaffected towards happenings such as this because my main line of work is providing legal counsel or psychological service in marital dissolution cases. But intense shock was what I intensely felt when I heard about the marital break-up in the local news. But what has shocked me even more than their estrangement is the cruel treatment SHK is presently receiving from malicious people. It is so grossly unfair on her part. What's even more painfully disgusting is the internalised misogyny of the women fans of SJK. As an aside, thanks for sharing---these are just pictures, but judging from these, SHK looks kind of sad but at the same time, she seems in calm or at peace which is therefore a good sign. She is so undeniably pretty. Anyway, I wish the best for SHK. Stay strong, SHK fans.

    Please do not misunderstand, the article actually says that Sulwhasoo has decided to be loyal to Kyo and their 2 decades worth of relationship. It gives details of the beginning of her relationship with Amore Pacific and her present endorsements under the label. An industry insider has said that Kyo knows the extent to which Sulwhasoo has supported her and that even though she is ongoing divorce proceedings she is actively looking into projects like Anna so that she can repay the faith in her by Sulwhasoo < I believe that the 10 days is in reference to this ... her side will choose a new work for her to appear in during this period> Sulwhasoo after all is a company and they need visibility, for that they need their artist to work in productions that make both her and their product more visible. Also given the nature of backlash she is receiving both she and the company need to show that her viability as both an actress and brand endorser have not been affected. Personally what I did not like about the article was how the journalist made assumptions that companies would be adversely affected by an issue such as divorce and they will wait for the remaining contract period to finish - do women stop wanting skin like SHK because she is a divorcee? — The article was the only one of it’s kind so it seems more like an op-ed with it representing the writers personal views and comments which strangely seem to only focus on the divorced woman, I guess divorced men make no difference to sales? I do not think even one company needs to be TOLD by anyone journalist or otherwise that they need to drop her, they will do so once their relationship is no longer profitable and if fans/purchasers stick by her then that will not happen.

That's why their misunderstanding can be resolved easily. And tomorrown I will look forward to this scene. Yeon Seo's at angel's den. You rock, girl !!!

    PharmacyNoona has said that she wants to see the old JH the way he used to be. And JISister has said that she misses the way JI used to be. I think that JH and JI are helping one another to become the people they were always meant to be. Cheesy? Maybe but that's just fine by me. I like cheddar.

    After watching the preview with the subtitles, GS's comments made my blood boil out of anger. GS is now trying to act as a victim as if he had done nothing wrong towards JI. Jae In was right: the relationship really ends, when you see the ugliest part of the ex-partner. Even in the episode 9, JI tried to protect GS's reputation. She broke up because GS was not the right man for her. As for the last part of the episode 9, I don't think that JI did anything wrong because she went to the cafe where his friends played. Fact is that GS hadn't visited them for a long time. He only went there, when he realized that JI had fallen in love with someone else hence JI didn't see them as close friends to GS. Moreover, she broke up with GS hence she doesn't need to hide anything. GS is really mean and sneaky because he will use JI's relatives in order to put JI under pressure: first her sister LSI, then her parents. He acts as if he knows JI very well, in reality he doesn't. He still views her from their long term relationship. She used to comply to his needs and never really complained hence if he keeps pressuring her, he thinks, she will comply at the end. He just needs to push her, just like he did in the past by making her feel guilty. JI was right: GS has always looked down on her and he keeps doing it. He shows no respect for her feelings and thoughts. I have also noticed that he often gives orders to her: - "Get in!" - "Let us talk inside!" - "Let us love each other more" - "We should get married" - "I will forget about it, so should you as well" - "I said nothing will change" - "Come to your senses" - "Get yourself a reality check" He thinks that his words are laws and JI has no saying. She just has to obey. Striking are the following words ("I mean, talking about making things work out over and over again could have tired me out, and I could have said, we should just call it quits") which reveal what I had written earlier. He can be the only one who breaks up, not the other way around. He won't let JI go because he can not accept that she broke up with him. His pride can not accept it. Furthermore in his mind, she chose another man who is far inferior compared to him. His words outlines that his refusal and denial have nothing to do with love. He doesn't love JI, he treats her like a possession hence he has no problem to bring trouble into JI's life. He will hurt her so that respect for him will vanish for good.

    Jung Hae In And Han Ji Min Enjoy A Sweet Date In “One Spring Night” Jung Hae In and Han Ji Min are enjoying a date in new stills for the upcoming episode of MBC’s “One Spring Night”! In the previous episode, Lee Jung In (Han Ji Min) and Yoo Ji Ho (Jung Hae In) reaffirmed their feelings for each other and strengthened their relationship. The preview for the next episode shows the two characters enjoying each other’s company at a cafe, unable to keep the smiles from their faces or take their eyes off one another, marking a sharp change from previous episodes when the two struggled to hide their feelings for each other. “One Spring Night” airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8:55 p.m. on MBC. https://www.soompi.com/article/1332895wpp/jung-hae-in-and-han-ji-min-enjoy-a-sweet-date-in-one-spring-night ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I guess we will also see some more cuteness from tomorrow's episode. The outfit in the gif are exactly the same. My hopes are high!

    I am not disappointed at all about the ending. Indeed it is very beautiful and brilliant way to end this fantasy genre. Although there are cases that we need a proper explanation from the writer about Nu Na, Soel Hee, and last but not least, it is still remain mysterious that Angel Kim Dan became a human. After all, this final eps is very scarifying. Angel Dan didn't dissipated and still make YS's dream happiness and he gave her his last breath which is an absolute way to make YS survived from the death. They met and end at the bench and that I think it is absolutely beautiful. Thank you the writer-nim. If you come to think of it, Angel Dan firstly got his mission (Tree's leaf) to meet YS and now it's ending, YS made her own mission to meet Dan. "Today,Right here". It is a fantasy drama so a proper explanation is not expected. Same goes to the way "Golbin ended". I did question why Eun Tak met Ahjusshi again. However, that's not the point of the whole drama, it is a matter of how the viewers see the ending in their own way. But, human is greedy and I am a human lol. I was hoping/praying/texting to the deity to give us special movie about their life together after Dan became human. I wanted to see 10 kids and tirelessly LYS and Kim Dan who shout their lung out to manage their 10 kids. Last but not least, this was my fist time joining this Soompi Forum. This drama is so beautiful and it was also the first K-drama of 2019 I have watched (Since Goblin ended). I don't want to dig out the actress and actor's privacy but I will happily root for them if they decide to date each other. Thank you everyone for sharing all the info/opinions/recap/gifts/pictures/shipping moments in here. I'm truly enjoyed every minutes I spent in here. "There's no proper goodbye" - Kim Dan so I will see you at the shipping thread. HAHA

    Hello fellow SHK'ers... I've been silent after the news, digesting what is happening..the backlash and all...Avoiding which party to blame...but with everything that happen..I will forever stan this beautiful lady inside and out.. For those who is wondering why she is silent...It was always her classy response to whatever situation was thrown at her...I feel hurt for her and for that I've translated my emotion into a poem (Please bear with me as I'm not a poet or writer or something Just a fan who truly wish her all the best.) Here goes..... To Kyo unni.. We thought he was your knight in shinning armor Came with a smile and words sweetly spoken Gestures for you that melt our hearts Made us wish he is the one for you But things happen And we may never know what went wrong Know that after all this things Your gonna bounce back Your gonna come out stronger Like you always did They might dim your light They might think you are weak But you know yourself And He knows you well Love and cherish you That you need not fear For better days he had plan For which you deserve A storm might what it needed For you are always and forever deserving Of that happily ever after Whether with someone else Or just the comfort of loving yourself and enjoying the love of those who hold you truly and dearly from their heart I wish I can send you a hug Although I dont know the whole truth And even supporting you since autumn days might not validate it A good heart recognizes one when she sees one So held your head up high This too shall pass They have criticize you, mock you and disgrace you But know that he is watching I believe you will come out stronger, wiser and a much better person Forever and always a fan to stand by you Shine like you always do Be the classy woman you always are Forever proud of you P.s..No shade intended on the other party..Lets just be like our unni..Classy and collected.. Have a good day sweeties....

    An Angel with a Human Heart: All for the Love of Lee Yeon Seo I titled two of the first posts I ever wrote about ALML ‘The Fallen Angel’ and ‘The Rebellious Angel’. I tried to predict in them where this show will take Dan as a character and, damn, it even exceeded my own expectations. The naive and carefree angel we met in the beginning and who called humans foolish and berated JKW for his messy emotions is long dead now - his innocence and naivité lost as he’s transformed into a complex, grown-up, tormented young man who is determined to protect the person he loves the most at all costs and who no longer sees the world only in black and white - it’s full of shades of grey, but also all the colors of a rainbow, just like he is. Ru Na once told Dan that good and evil wasn’t so black and white and the man Dan has become knows it better than anyone else because his life is now messed up and complicated. And so, Dan’s transformation is complete. He’s always had a rebellious streak and something darker and tormented brewing underneath his bright smile; however, as Dan himself admits he is well and truly fallen now. Somewhere along the way, he gradually went and broke every rule in the book and right now, he is in an open rebellion against the deity. He fell in love with a human to a point where he revers her like a goddess, calls her name like a prayer and all his confessions belong only to her. His love for Yeon Seo is such an unconditional neverending love that he himself admits to her and the deity that she is his everything, his beginning and his end, the source of his happiness, the reason he is living and the center of his universe. He kissed her, yearned for her, had premarital sex with her and even married her in spite of the deity and all his laws. Furthermore, he wants to become a human for her and while Dan might not be a real human, he possesses a human heart. He doesn’t hesitate to scheme, use underhanded tactics and threaten anyone if it means protecting his lover. He learned to drive for YS because he doesn’t trust anyone else to drive her; he learned to fight so he could protect her and because he didn’t want her to see him as useless and because he wanted to give her everything and couldn’t deny her anything. Oh, and fight he does - against the deity, the fate, the death itself, archangels, JKW, her family and everyone threatening to harm her - he fights for Lee Yeon Seo. Virtually the whole world and the Heaven above is against them, and each day there is a new seemingly insurmountable obstacle of their love, but that only makes Dan more determined to fight this hopeless battle harder and soldier on like a trooper. He is ready to sacrifice his very soul and kill RN, all for the love of Lee Yeon Seo. Even the cynical JKW, who despises the deity, is aghast and horrified at the lengths Dan is prepared to go in order to protect her. On a side note, Dan as a defiant, fallen angel throwing the reports at the altar, right into the deity’s face, without giving a damn, is the awesomest thing that has ever awesomed and probably the closest thing to a mic drop an angel can do. I love how gradual Dan’s transformation has been and also the many breaking points which pushed him further and further into the fiery pit -witnessing the old couple’s fate, learning that YS’s family are vipers, learning about his own past, YS’s doom,… - each time he snapped and something inside him twisted, died and was remade.

    Today's episode was for me basically perfect because it perfectly represented and contained everything I love about this drama - that awesome combination of addictive angst, heartbreak, OTP awesomeness, cuteness and heartwrenching intimacy and emotions. And you can really feel that we are nearing the end because there were many throwbacks to the first episodes. I love how Dan's bouquet for YS was the echo of the bouquet she never got from him, how he told her about the first time he watched her dance on that very same place. In this episode, Dan and Yeon Seo really gave each other their everything and it was simply perfect.

    Arinda, I'm amazed at you. I'm No Drama Stars Worshipper. You can do and feel what you like. But do Not expect others to follow you. Past Relationships?? If u are lucky, u can get married and stay happily forever with the first Suitor you meet. You think everybody is so Lucky? She only has 2 relationships in her 37 years of Life. Is that too much? Is that Scandalous? Has she been Permissive? Does she bare herself in her movies or dramas? Besides she was only 22 years' old when she met LBH. I would say she is very careful with relationships. Plus she is too soft-hearted. That is why she get persuaded. Attend same event as her Ex's ? Why must she attend the same events as her ex. If she has to, she has to. Otherwise there is no need for her to force herself to do it. If she prefer not to have anything to do with her ex's, what is so wrong with that? Everybody has their own preference. And why must you be so harsh on her alone. How about her ex's ? LBH himself has so many scandals before and after his marriage HB himself also has a failed relationship recently only. A very brief dating Why must we always judge the Female Gender so harshly? Are you sure "The Innocent Man" is really so "innocent"? Both parties have a responsibility. But the way this Guy handled the Divorce is certainly not right

    Haven't had access to subs yet I thought this knowing the world of Korean dramas, if not Korea itself. I figured her sister's divorce will taint JI so that he is less desirable and "damaged" enough to be on JH's level. I think it is interesting that GS's father included sad lonely picture of GS. Unfortunately I think those pictures of himself with make him feel that he must win so that his father don't see him as a loser. Just saw the subs As always a lovely episode. There were so many things I want to but won't. As I was watching JI+JH last conversation together in the episode I realise that what made their relationship magical in the quiet way it is, is not because they love each other, in drama the couples love each other. What make the special is the mutual respect they have for each other. They love each other's spirit. The fact that their love comes sexual attraction make it even better. Jae-In and JI are such thug talkers. Jae-In scenes with Mr. Almost Civil Servant was delightful. I've been thinking that either Jae-In or their Mom needed to move in with Seo-In. I'm glad mom agreed with me. The way Seo-In reacts to SH , and the fact that every time he see her he seems to present a physical threat makes me think that his hitting her is not a one time thing yet all the dialogue is treating it like it is. I think Mr. Kwon respects JI's honesty. I think they have honesty in common. I like that Kwon showed JI respect by not only accepting the tea she brought, but only having it brewed immediately. JI showed exactly who she was. "My parent opinion do matter, but what I want should come first in my private life" Mr. Kwon had already told GS what he told JI at their meeting. If her relationship with JH is not serious, GS should overlook it and never bring it up, and he told JI he wouldn't hold it against her. I suspect Kwon see romantic love like crushes, fun but transient. He think that there are other important qualities to build a family on--like the quality of the person. I notice that when she has to deal with her father, GS, or GS's father, JI looks worn down. JH puts a spring in her step. I think Mr. Kwon was skipping down the stairs after his meeting with LTH because he had manipulated LTH into doing his bidding; pressure JI to marry GS. This was his hands will be clean. This was similar to what LTH and GS were trying to do last episode. Neither wanted to take responsibility for setting a wedding date and pissing JI off. Mr. Kwon is just better at that type of manipulation. The joy on JH's mother's face when she saw her son truly happy was heartwarming. The shot of JH and JI back as they walked down the lane made is easy to see them 25 years in the future. JH's line. "i'll give up then." "On you." was devastatingly delivered. Yeah, I shouldn't, but I feel sorry for GS because he is so ill equipped for the war he's started. GS is ill equipped because he himself brings nothing to the fight. He is depending on his status and society to do the fighting for him. Against some opponents it might work, but not against JH and JI. People often mistake kindness for weakness. He has really underestimated JH and JI. They are not people you want to go to war with. I's like to spend more time with the Young-/Jae/-In couple. JH fail at a suave attempt at kissing across the table was endearing. I love the visual story telling in this so very much. The three empty beer can and 2 empty bags of chips. The bag on the chair, the sweater/jacket on the couch were wonderful indication of time passing so we know things unfolded but nothing was rushed. The shot of the cityscape through JI's bedroom window was beautiful. I love how much goodness and humanity is in the characters in this drama. To me SH and LTH are the villains. GS is too sad and clueless to reach status of villain.

    After reading the recap I have a few thoughts about YS/KD/NN/RN/JKW. Initially, I felt sorry for Ni Na, because it seemed like her family so desperately wanted her to beat YS and be better than her. However, they have enabled her to become obsessed with YS at the behest of her own personal mental health. Ni Na has absolutely lost her mind. First, I don't believe for one second that she is ignorant to what Ru Na is doing. In fact, I believe she set her sister up. She knew if she poured out the tears and whined out loud her disdain for YS, that her unnie would act. She knew it the first time when the light fixture blew and blinded YS and she is aware of it now. You could see it in the first few episodes where even though she was the lead ballerina, it was ONLY because of YS's injury. JKW told her that she lacked the emotion for the lead part. He said she looked disconnected from her partner and her movements were stiff. That is because in the back of her mind, she didn't earn that spot. She was there simply because her sister connived and got rid of the real lead ballerina. She is obsessed with comparison to YS. Then, here comes JKW and immediately she falls for him. What I find interesting here is that JKW came to Fantasia specifically because of its attachment to YS. Without YS, he would not even be there. He walked in speaking of working with her again. And he showed up as soon as YS got her sight back. Ni Na is aware of this, yet she went full speed ahead to confess to him and when he rejected her, she practically begged him to give her another chance. Now, YS is back in the company dancing and expecting no special favors. She leveled the playing field by having open auditions for the lead role. This was Ni Na's opportunity to shine. What did she do? She tracked down YS's old ballet teacher and begged her to work with her. Once again, I find it revealing that when she yelled out in frustration that she was never going to be better than YS, the instructor agreed with her, then helped her find more passion and focus as a dancer. I think people think that Ni Na plays second fiddle to YS because she's too nice, but Ni Na isn't nice at all. She is a quiet manipulator and it is frustrating her that she hasn't been able to manipulate JKW although she has desperately tried. She even tried to manipulate KD and it almost worked because he foolishly thought she was this nice person, but it didn't work enough to put a wedge between him and YS. Ni Na works the men first and then when all else fails, she runs to her sister because she hasn't failed her yet. I can understand her being frustrated with losing to YS, but for her in a moment of frustration to specifically say, "I want YS to die. I wish she would just die." That is master manipulation. She let her sister know in no uncertain terms that blinding YS wasn't enough, now she must go away forever. This is why Ni Na will not get what she wants. She has to cheat in order to do it. She isn't confident enough to level the playing field like YS does. I heard someone say once that they don't believe people are born with talent. They felt that people could work hard and become whatever they want. I disagree. I believe that some people are born talented to do certain things. YS was born to dance. Her skill level is so great that she can be unable to dance for three years and then make a comeback in a month. Ni Na could never. What the aunt and her sister don't realize is that their actions prove that she is less talented. Bribing dancers in the company, stealing and burning records, trying to kill YS to get her out of the way - all of this screams that Ni Na isn't good enough so we have to cheat to get her there. Throw the whole family away! I have thought about this for weeks, and I just don't see any way around it. YS will probably die and join KD in the other realm. How many times has she cheated death since the drama began? Three times now? Eventually her fate will catch up and she will be able to dance as an angel. What do you all think?
