  1. Missing him and falling asleep on his bed, dreaming about him and waking up. This kiss scene is teeny bit slightly different from the beginning of Ep 10 kiss?
  2. I love it, thank you. I actually didn't mean the dark grave dance (which I don't know if any other depictions of Giselle dance featured actual tombstones - any ballet fans know?) - I wanted a higher def 30s clip of KBM/NiNa on stage just like Yeon-Seo. Thanks sweetie!
  3. For me the dialog on the bridge late night before the final auditions was so, so well done. I can't get over how well the writer interweaved the fate of Albreight and Giselle with Dan (who was able to sympathize with the '2-timing prince', for whom Giselle dances even from the grave) and Yeon-Seo. Yeon-Seo tells him, "go on, tell me more", and hearing Dan's unique perspective she is able to find the 'key' with which she could unlock Giselle's unspeakable emotions - which she nevertheless can 'speak' thru her dances - because, Yeon-Seo, afterall, is a true genius ballerina who can tell that story with her movements and her slightest facial movements. And as the dance begins, the writer, through Dan's narration thoughts, lets us know right away from the start in front of everyone that she (Giselle) is not about loving or hating Albreight, but that her dance is one of heartache over herself, her actions, unable to trust and believe that Albreight indeed did love her completely, unalloyed with his station in life or his fate before meeting her - juxtaposing all this to Dan's current situation and his station, where he came from - yes from heaven as an angel, but before that from a short-lived mostly bitterly painful life of 11 years (Korean 12-year olds have only lived 11 years, by the way), he (Dan) now questioning, doubting, now second-guessing himself whether Yeon-Seo, like Giselle could actually accept him if she were to find out who he really is. My God, so many layers going on all at the same time in that dance - it was what I would say, 'perfectly convincing' - I was sold on this version of the writer's story telling. There was nothing that didn't seem right about the entire audition - from Ni-Na's amazing dance (Bravo Kim Bo-Mi!) that left my heart racing, to how, somehow, Yeon-Seo was able to show yet another interpretation that was indeed other-worldly, i.e., Gisellian from the other world. How the actresses topped themselves after all that they had already shown, especially Shin Hye-Sun after last week's short dance scene before JKW that we raved about - I don't know how these actors do it week after week, just delivering one fantastic and unspeakably beautiful scene after another, and the torrent of all these scenes, wave after wave, hitting me as I watch them and the music, the OST's now also playing the hypnotic visuals layered upon each note and word dropped to my ears. I cannot believe I could derive this much pleasure and artistic beauty from a ... Drama! Now as for the ending, I think I have much to say on it now too, but I am choosing to trust this writer - so far, if you read the Angel Dan's last report on page 1 and other things mentioned in the very first press conference, I believe that the writer has stayed true, there hasn't been any false narratives or cheating on what the intentions are, etc. I am waiting for a 'satisfying' ending, which may not be the standard 'happy' ending, but nevertheless, perhaps a 'righteous' ending where we do not despair of the meaning of life, whether a benevolent God exists who knows ultimately better than we do from beginning to end although we do not have answers to too many things for now, nor will the writer make us despair of love - it is the very definition of love that the drama is dealing with, and to some extent Dan has already succeeded in making Yeon-Seo love again, that is without question - whether she will choose to love when literally everything is taken away, that remains for us to see. I don't actually care to go there, and I do not mind if the writer does not go there, but if she so chooses to take it that far, I will be at peace and would still support the gutsy effort it takes to make that attempt, however dissatisfying it is for vast majority of drama watchers and shippers who don't care for it.

  4. A triumph for Korean actors, dancers, producers, story tellers today. Triumph for actress Kim Bo-Mi, who finally got her 'one and only chance' to show what she is capable of. I was so moved by her dance, I didn't know how Yeon-Seo would top her. So much pride and deep joy I feel as a simple drama fan of all 4 of these lead actors. I cried and cried, tears of joy and achingly beautiful pain from so much feels. Edit: @Ameera Ali can you please make a pretty hd gif of Keum Ni-Na's dance of Giselle from the grave like you did for LYS? Congrats to you and many others here on this forum for kudos and acknowledgments you are receiving from soompi for making this a fantastic place for us all. And I agree @jakey09 deserves real credit for the fractions of point differences for the ratings boost for bragging rights. Well done my chingoos and fans of this flawed but well conceived story told so sweetly each week and causing much for me to ponder on.
  5. Hi all you crazy fans and shippers and chingoos. Even though I can still only visit very little for now, it's so fun to watch what is happening here. Thank you for the happy and thoughtful discussions of substance and fantasy by everyone. About her name, 신혜선. 혜 - is pronounced like Hé (like French accent aigu, or 'egg' sound). 해 - is pronounced like Hæ (as in 'agriculture'). This is not how it's spelled in Korean. In Korean, there is no confusion. Goo Hye-Sun, an older more famous actress/director has the same first name spelling in Korean and uses the Hye, as does Park Shin-Hye, and again the same sound. My hunch is that SHS herself, not having an agent at the time of School2013, her debut work, just spelled it in English the best way she knew how or just the way she liked it. Given that, I do think that her own English spelling of her first name is the 'correct' English version since one can spell one's name in another language any way one pleases. We can have this debate on how to properly spell it in English when she's up for the Cannes or the Oscars. EDIT. Thanks @Shosi_for_9 ! Oh and for subs to the press interview 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OG1FvvHYQE , go here .
  6. Go here for subs. LoL, no wonder she's so humble - her family used to cringe at her acting she says. Some high standards they had for thespians in her family. Yes, thank you again!! @biscuit710 welcome! No better avatar than what you have chosen!
  7. So sorry I'm late to the party, children. Thanks @immorethant for always remembering me, and for making the early version of the video available for the growing number of the addicted. @jakey09 I can't say that I knew you were destined for greatness, but you and @mylovekge sure deserve another loud shout out and a thanks for your wonderful actions bringing together the truck for SHS and also for creating this one more happy place for my favorite actress in the whole galaxy! Now I didn't want to come empty handed, and this interview has enough info to tickle and titillate us for another day or so, so I share below my 'housewarming gift' (to this new "Soo-Sun Love Abode") - the full English subs to the video, in a simple SRT text format (which I learned from my techy 'family member'). 1 00:00:02,000 --> 00:00:07,000 {\an8}Angel's Last Mission: Love 2 00:00:05,000 --> 00:00:07,000 {\an2}Press interview 3 00:00:07,001 --> 00:00:21,000 {\an9}Q.

How is the chemistry with your lead actor (Kim Myung-Soo)? 23 00:00:56,500 --> 00:01:01,000 {\an6}From when we 1st met, because we are from the same village 24 00:01:02,000 --> 00:01:05,500 {\an6}Feels like we easily became comfortable with one another 25 00:01:05,501 --> 00:01:06,900 {\an6}And in a very short time could get close to one another 26 00:01:07,000 --> 00:01:25,000 {\an9}Q.

Reactions from friends? 49 00:01:51,001 --> 00:01:54,500 {\an9}Well this Dan who's funny, light-hearted and is colorful on his own 50 00:01:55,001 --> 00:01:59,800 {\an9}Doing this type of a character those around me would tell me it's a very cute character 51 00:02:00,001 --> 00:02:25,800 {\an9}Q. Reactions from those around you? 52 00:02:00,001 --> 00:02:04,000 {\an4}"What happens next?" "I pity Yeon-Seo" 53 00:02:04,001 --> 00:02:06,000 {\an4}If that would be the typical kind of reaction they would give, 54 00:02:06,001 --> 00:02:08,500 {\an4}Well ordinarily when I had first started out in acting doing roles, 55 00:02:08,501 --> 00:02:12,800 {\an4}If those people who knew me were watching me act 56 00:02:13,001 --> 00:02:15,800 {\an4}They would feel really quite cringey (about watching me act) 57 00:02:16,001 --> 00:02:19,000 {\an4}"Oh I can't watch it!~~ What's with you?" They would say before 58 00:02:19,001 --> 00:02:21,000 {\an4}But now, they are able to look beyond that and 59 00:02:21,001 --> 00:02:25,500 {\an4}Watching them look at me as [thru the lens of] my characters, has been heart-warming (warm fuzzies) 60 00:02:25,801 --> 00:02:50,000 {\an2}<font color="orange">Q.

  8. Be careful what you ask for, O @jakey09 Inspired by these comments, and of course Ep 8 (15,16). Trying something I've never been inspired to do before, I translated all of the comments I saw from couple hours ago. Thank you @Liting1 truly this is the most appropriate gif if you read the comments.There are great insights by the SK viewers and it's so satisfying to read them express what's on all our hearts. Like some of you @Nymeria289 and others have expressed I actually think the writer producers are having great fun at our expense. I think they knew Ep 7 was the weakest one, so they threw everything in to promote it. Ep 7 there was a trash can fire, and I wondered if they knew the American expression, "a real dumpster fire" - to describe what a disjointed mess it was, and they were poking fun at themselves. So I laughed right along with them. And then this, this Ep 8. I thought it was great sheerly in contrast to the previous one, but if you read the SK fans' reactions, I have to agree it was one for the annals of drama heaven. Much more to say, but I spent all my 2 hrs left of my week on this post, so you all carry on! To 200 pages and beyond, Crazy Dan-Yeon and KangWoo-Matile shippers!!
  9. Good morning from my abode to all you crazy wonderful bunch of ... kids! O my, how these couples*** have brought out the fairies among us. I am speechless, unable to read thru so much silliness and faith and hope and love , o'erflowing this virtual space with a sweet aroma of incense offered up and pleasing to the 'dramagods' of the mishmash koreojudeobuddhocristovariety. I am happy beyond expression to see the labor of love, or perhaps a simple exuberant and youthful frenzy of infatuation over what ALM:L hath wrought here. It is beyond classification, what I am privileged to witness herein. We SHS fans have marveled at her continued ability to 'have her cake and eat it too' (an American English expression baffling to many), but in korean it would be 꿩멱고알먹고, eat quail and egg too, meaning her insatiable appetite for 2 for 1 deals -- always demanding and getting roles with 2 male leads fighting over her. ***couples -- but we have here her legitimately playing in 2 different love affairs with 2 separate angelohumanoidsofthealphaandbetamalevariety, and again, I am speechless. As usual I will not be able to partake in the livestream, but my heart and my 'fighting' shall be with all you crazy meechin chingoos! +
  10. Hello and welcome to @Friendly kitty @Leneyleney @Josh Marquez @Hannah Tabunan @soesje @smileyw @1amawesom3 @Nabila @joanie_ha @Melissa Add @jaemin's friend @shamrockmom and everyone! Now I just went thru about 15 pages to catch up. I'm out of breath. Such great fans and posts here, and everyone is quite respectful and good at communicating, clearing up misunderstandings when they happen. It's positively heart-warming to see so much invested into this story by so many. Even the disappointments and criticisms are mostly coming from super high expectations, and it feels like we learn much from these moments. With all of us being so absorbed into this and so much energy invested, it's hard to be objective or 'just enjoy the show' I know. But none of us could have it any other way, once we're all addicted to this place, can we? I am grateful to EVERYONE contributing here, truly.
  11. Hello Mano-a-mano @Man-O-Man So like, you don't sound like you're in love with her, at all! LoL. Just teasin. There are just so many celebrities in SKorea that she's not quite yet a household name. We the audiences have a short attention span. And she doesn't titillate, at least not us the female audiences yet, LoL, so it'll take longer for her to become that household name, but even then she is not likely to be on the top of social media driven 'lists' - that's mostly by under 30 audiences I think. Her reputation is growing fast everywhere, though, thanks to scenes like these below, and she's making everyone take notice, not just the more thoughtful and sophisticated audiences such as the fine chingoos who've gathered here. I can tell this is @immorethant's own creation. Perplexing to me why she's not posting here all her beautiful presents but only in the drama thread. Please, girl, post all your stuff here! I am almost unable to function here lately becoz of personal RL matters that are driving me ka-rrrrazzy (yes like how Mathil said it in ALM:L) but I am banking on you the SHSsavant @immorethant to post everything here, all the gifs on twitter and everywhere of our incomparably beautiful Shin Hye-Sun, the one all the girls and boys and lumberjack men alike are in love with, please. That's 6 out of 16 episodes you have done this 35-pic collage, so I expect ...um... a 100-pic EpiCollage by the time 16 eps are done - ooh gives me chills and bumps just imagining it. As for the drama itself, it's fun to see @jakey09 and @Ni Wen especially rabidly chewing up the pages, but I'm already about 20 pages behind, I think. I love it though. I saw couple of looong tomes by @titania1000 to provide spice and her own counterpoint and controversy that makes it more fun too. I hope this doesn't turn out to be a drama I watch for the crazy 100 different faces of SHS while cursing at the writer (like MGL was known for), but if it lacks in really well constructed story telling becoz of the requisite borderline makjang suspense hangers every 50 minutes (this is the juggernaut that all kdramas need to navigate thru without blowing up by episode 8 or 12 out of the ending at 16 - becoz of something called ratings and advertisers and ability to make big-budget productions on multi-locations all over SKorea if not Asia or lately, Morocco or Cuba or some place more exotic) - I haven't had to curse at all so far becoz of the pure eye candies and becoz well if they had 16 hours of disjointed vignettes with SHS doing every scene, I would pay good money just to watch that, too. Who needs well constructed story lines and well developed characters when it's SHS, right? That's a wink, wink, ok @titania1000 ok, so don't respond to that. Happy to know we're all still so dependent on Shin Hye-Sun's successes for our own personal well-being, chingoos!
  12. What is she staring at? Hmm? Thanks @turtlegirl for your recaps - a present for you. Wednesdsay's Episode 5 was mesmerizing. L's acting was so good, first time he's the one who made me cry. That said, Shin Hye-Sun dominated the screen with her physical movements, and L/Dan's (and JKW's) laser focus on her throughout this and every episode just magnifies this favorite actress of mine in a way I could have never imagined. She just spins about and sparkles from every facet, every angle. Each episode is such a feast for my eyes, every scene a gift. Welcome to the thread, @enigmatic_zephy @Ameera Ali and @philosophie and everyone!
  13. Hey Chingoos! Everyone must be exhausted posting to the drama thread and no energy left for Hye-Sun-ssi here. Episode 5 (9-10) she filled every second of the screen time on which she appeared. Waiting for her to smile again. Nice to have you back from your Secret Forest @Man-O-Man And @Nymeria289 too!
  14. Thank you! Actually, you're good. The double meaning is intentional, and the original song from years ago with the same title and another one that is about drawing you both carry more the 'drawing you'/'picturing you'/'imagining you' nuance. So as you can see from my quick translation below, it's really in the sense, "Picture This!" - draw or paint, less about missing, but both meanings reinforce one another. As always, great job, @immorethant you're getting scary good! And it's a beautiful song in any language, and the word are so powerful sung by L/Dan, knowing that it is of Yeon-Seo he sings so sweetly. I tried to convey the nuances of the beautifully poetic words! Enjoy!
  15. OMG these are to die for! Did you make them yourself @Jemrie? Put together like that, they really magnify new facets of her beauty I hadn't seen quite like that. They are so gorgeous, can I invite you to post them all separately in actress SHS's thread here? I can copy them there and make sure they point to you, but it'd be even sweeter if you can do the honors and post them yourself, pretty please?!! And you don't have hide (spoiler) any there since not too many people go there, just a devoted few. Hi to everyone else writing so many beautiful and thoughtful posts here. I knew it appealed to my sense of fantasy and possibilities when I first heard about this drama way back in November (not announced until December), but what I didn't anticipate was the number and degree of so many insightful soompiers here that the story would inspire - with the kinds of analyses based on really keen deeper observations (very specific things I hardly noticed), so much background info and knowledge shared, all the amazingly gorgeous visuals continuing to pour out from fans. I read the reviews on dramabeans and b**ches (thanks for that link @immorethant even though the reviewer there isn't a SHS fan at all) and between those and @briseis and @bebebisous33 and many others' insights there, it's clear that something about this story has triggered something - opened up and inspired many very astute writers and drama-thinkers to show us the probable depth and years' worth of background work the story and screen writer must have done to tell this story - could very well be her magnum opus she's been sitting on for a long time. And it makes me marvel at how the casting director could have foreseen these different elements to pick for us these perfect main leads - and to put it altogether in such a timely manner under pressure - to present a near-perfect (so far) piece of work in every way. Pretty mind-blowing. I just wanted to say, Thank you everyone! And welcome to the thread @lolly84 @Cecentre and of course once more @Jemrie and anyone else I forgot to mention.
  16. Note - this is how we 5x the frequency of 'accident' THE ❤️ KISS Part 1. And an invitation for completion of part 2. Welcome to the thread, @almldan , @mslilith, @Lawyerh and other refugees from HPL, @SC2019, @seteney, @Emzsmith and @aintnodrama and @Milady Himedere and @Melissa Add and all noobs - a warm spring welcome to all! And to @bebebisous33 for her treatise on the 4 types of Angels, a big applause and thanks! Happy angelic weekend to everyone!
