  1. Roll On The Floor Laughing My "A ## Off - = ROTFLMAO.....the imagery of the ski jump !! Perfection !
  2. I was hoping it was a translation error...moisturizer....shudder !!! And...really why bother for 5 seconds...LMAO I'm not sure what Pond can teach Ae...his frame of reference is very different...needless to say in that scene if Ae isn't rolling with a condom AND lube..then Pond didn't teach him much..."moisturizer still makes me shudder. I'm not sure what a good Some is ? Hubby well yeah if you marry....LOL And to tell the truth...it perhaps is a decision they both will make when the time comes...there is no set role (Yaoi Myth). Well of course, condoms are universal GB and BB...however Lube that's really for BB and Lube may be pushing the envelope... ROTFLMAO !!! Ouch ! Yeah you see it in KD's the assumption being that they will always live in the world they were raised in...Lack of knowledge doesn't make you weak...it means you just don't know. Then when you know, you move to the next level. I think that's going to be the life lessons for Pete. And Ae has some lessons to learn too - he is not absolved from learning, in fact, his lesson may be harder.
  3. This moment ...I was thinking about how some scenes were directed to tell the story and this is the scene that put Ae on notice...and he didn't even realize he had fallen down the rabbit hole...lol ( kudos to director) So very true...agreed.
  4. No question - Pete's face said volumes as he watched Ae take off his T-shirt. There was nothing innocent about that look.
  5. I consider it cannon ! I think if you've watched 20 or so drama's very few stand out like LS...and now LBC. I think part of the issue is that LBC is not a Gmmtv production. They are hosting it because MCOT dropped it. I understand that the production company is independent and partly funded by Chinese investors. So Gmm is lending it's platform along with line. I also think they are trying to see just how many international fans are around and watch BL ( subs). We could see a change down the road from all the stations. Just 4 years ago...subs were something you just didn't get. You either learned the language or learned to watch raw. Now with more international fans ..subs are becoming more important - the more people you reach the more that turn in to watch your shows on your channel. I don't think there is a big rush to sub Mint...currently airing
  6. For a moment I thought they had replaced actors...close your eyes and it was LS...too cool Lazy Subber sent a very small prezzy...
  7. The problem I have with uke and same is that for some reason a personality is attached. The uke(bottom) must be this frail effeminate flower boy, while the same (top ) is the oh so masculine manly type. I'm sure there is the BL novel template which if you write this is what you follow and what is included. There have been exceptions however they have been met with this story is " too real." not enough fluff. Perhaps it's changing... Actually the author of MT is a man. What it suffers from is pacing mostly...but yeah it's rare. With LBC the author does comment on perceptions that fans have about the characters. For Pete she said: and about Ae she said: So I guess who would know better than the author of who the character is supposed to be and how he supposed to be portrayed. I am remaining optimistic about LBC and the direction it takes and gee we've only had (1) episode... For once, the perceived " uke " is taller than the perceived " seme "..we've already broken a mold. As mentioned earlier Pete takes Ae's first kiss. Pete could break the mold again. We may be surprised to discover more activities and storylines revealed. I also trust the director ( this isn't his first rodeo)... So I am hoping for the best from this series...I like the energy and the story telling style and so far the actors are doing a wonderful job.
  8. Agreed, I think the actress was in Puppy Honey. I'm ok with that BG.
  9. yeah...Pete can't ride a bicycle or take a tram...but he's got other skills.... Loving this ! I must remember that phrase...<sigh> English is so flat sometimes...not very nuanced.. we lack je ne sais quoi in the language of love ! So Shaoye will have to school his Nong...yep I just merged to cultures in one sentence....LOL
  10. And now I know why we have appetizers... I think it's a relationship in general. The sex is secondary (well not always). I think as the relationship grows so does the natural curiosity. Let's see where Episode 2 leads us.. there's a lot of ground to cover.
  11. Perhaps, having read the novel it didn't come across as exploration in gender identity. It's a BL novel they aren't that deep. Guy meets guy, they fall in love, overcome some obstacles, (not necessarily in that order) and there is a BE or an HE. The roommate reminds me of a character from American Pie. I've know gay and str8 guys who aren't interested in porn..it's not a big deal in my opinion and clearly not enough to say who Ae is. JMHO. I will say it's one of the better executed BL dramas, the characters and the complexity are there - It has a very LS feel which I enjoy. I'm looking forward to this journey. Thanks for you thoughts on that.
  12. Unfortunately, that's one of the tropes for BL. Str8 guy falling for a gay guy. So...unless Ae explicated says he's Bi or Gay....he's going Gay for Pete. That has been the norm for BL. There are very few where this isn't the case.
  13. I don't know if it fell off or just slowed down which is prolly why I just went to the final episode even though I have 6 left. I needed closure..LOL. Acknowledging that most of these Xian Xie series are based on a novel, I'm not so harsh especially when the major adaptation worked. I've watched Ethan in other drama's and some reality shows in China...this by far was his shining moment like so many other actors : Mark Zhao in TMPB, William Chan in LLIT, Lou Jin in TPW, all these actors careers leveled up after their series.
  14. You should check out facebook and Twitter...it's pretty hot right now...
  15. It was hard..and they have been under the radar. I still check in on Weibo from time to time - but considering the status of where they live. It would be hard. Oh how I wished they and MengRui were in Thailand - what fun they would have. I guess I see Pete as this guy ( first and foremost) who has lived a different kind of life. One that isn't rough but as you say refined. He's soft spoken, thoughtful, polite; why would he need to know how to take a tram, train, bus, or taxi if he drives a Benz ? He is who he is...unfortunately, he will be termed the " wifey" ( oh how I hate that term) because he doesn't have edge. Actually, he's a lot like Phun from LS if you think about the character's complexity. And yes a contrast to Ae which really is nice. I think it really comes down to understanding that there isn't just one type of Gay guy ( nice he came out too). Uke/Seme is not a personality trait..it's what two people choose to do behind closed doors in bed...nothing more. LOL Yes !!! Can is going to be a fun character. I liked Rathavit in the MIR series - a bit of comic relief then and I expect now in lbc. All in all I have and I'm sure I will enjoy the rest of this series. I like what the director is doing, the camera work, the overall high quality production. I loved the fact that when they were in the coffee shop, there were actually other customers....LOL that's not always the case ( think KMA). It's exciting times some good BL's coming up soon and here's the thing I most appreciate, more gay guys are watching and commenting. Not a problem...the East Coast here in US is pretty steamy too...more than usual it's been 30 to 35 C the last few weeks...ugh ! So stay cool as you can...
  16. Hey there my friend ! It's been a while since Qingyu ( my original ship) ...this drama has the fastest sub turn around that I've seen - this was under 12 hours. You can also watch it raw at http://www.one31.net/live. if you have a VPN. The fb page will give notification of subs...it's great that line works outside of Asia for once with VPN so I'm excited. Loving this Bl series. I read the novel so I'm pleased to see that the director didn't film this page by page.( like another celestial BL drama) and will take on producing a complete ensemble drama. Even enjoying MT..although the pacing is a bit slow but it's gmmtv...their pacing is always slow ( ie. KMA. Will check back in from time to time now that my Soompi notifications are back up and running- hope you are doing well
