  1. Happy birthday, Suspicious Partner! Wishing thee a toothsome two! How do I love thee? I couldn't count the ways, But if I had to, it'd be the JiJi way, Forever and ever and ever. Met one night... lasted a lifetime.
  2. PART 15 From a cosmic perspective, the universe may or may not be sparing an afterthought to the tiny magnet-ball whizzing along minding its own business, but zooming in all the way through infinite space down to the east half of the said ball, quite a bit has been happening for the little souls to whom such concerns matter. Definitely moi, for one. History shall bear witness that Nia, circa 27th April 2019 AD, was found during the course of the entire day to have been frothing at the mouth and gibbering a rather questionable version of the good ol’ carol…. during Easter season. A stanza for the benefit of the curious: Good shippers all rejo-o-oice! With heart and soul and vo-o-ice! Listen now to what we say, News! News! Sergeant Wookie’s out today! Seas and ships before him bow, As he explodes love bombies now. Wookie’s out today-ay! Wookie’s out today! Not my proudest moment, I frankly admit, but that hardly mattered, for there was so much else to be gratified about. After 621 yards, honorably discharged Sergeant Ji Chang Wook returned to civilian life decorated with high achievement accolades. Starting from basic training, then through the ranks embodying the spirit of patriotic fervor as Dong Kyu, the whole course of his enlistment was a boundless service to his motherland, the best way he knew how to. What a son! What a man! He promised to do his best, and delivered in spades. As for me, I promised to wait patiently, wait trustingly, wait the best way I knew how to. Seems like I did a pretty good job of it myself, if the reward of the wait is any indication. As a shipper, I couldn’t have been more blessed than to have found JiJi. Their story might as well have been spun with fairy yarn for all the spectacular drama in it. Even the temporary separation brought its own charm and lessons for the couple and for their cheerleaders. I went in rest assured, as would anybody when bombarded with BTS Kiss MV at concerts, lovesick IVs, and promises to hypothetical yeojachingu. I stayed rest assured, as would anybody when buried in Director’s Cuts featuring the kind of osculation that’s guaranteed to render your spine to spaghetti and knees to jelly. Not to mention the staring, smiling, cuddling, caressing, petting, nuzzling, licking, biting, pulling, panting,…. um, well, the point I wished to make was that there was plenty of material and time gifted rather generously to stay comforted that JiJi had an association that was here to stay. Mushy factors aside, there was one pivotal argument that bought my faith unreservedly. Ji Chang Wook. More to the point, his belief, willingness, tenacity, determination, and the glorious point in his life when Nam Ji Hyun finally met him as his equal. He came to know her well during that time of his life when he was fully grown and capable of mastering the strings of attachment along with everything else he has and wants. Once he began to know her, he became determined to learn more. The more he learned, the more tenaciously he held onto everything that Hyunnie came to mean to him. The more she meant, the greater his willingness to be bound to her. The closer they bound, the deeper his belief grew- in his own constancy, in her inimitable strength, in their compelling destiny. And perhaps these realizations are all the more potent in the light of the fact that each stance is equally true from his lady’s perspective, for she, in her turn, always matched his steps unerringly. Nam Ji Hyun. The brilliant, charismatic, genuine and fascinating creature who basks in his adoration. And by whose virtue, I was able to finally see the beast that dwelt within her man’s heart. That which could feed its own wants unreservedly, fulfill hers immeasurably, possess while being possessed. That which could protect and keep to the end, destroy anything that dared threaten its own. I saw it in him, when he first kissed her. Then in numerous moments until the drama was over and the moment of reckoning was at hand. With an almost devious cunning and will, skillfully sheathed in affability, he drew the lines, made his mark, told the world. Ji Chang Wook and Nam Ji Hyun. Nam Ji Hyun and Ji Chang Wook. Thoughts of the entire world became speculations, rumors, probes, questions and curiosities, all closed in on JiJi, yet not one took form, not one touched them, especially her, not when he wills otherwise. I witnessed him take hits on himself, saw him bear the ones that were not even earmarked for him. I can testify that he emerged all the stronger out of them. He knows she can do likewise, without a doubt, but there won’t be any experiments on his watch. He hasn’t even let a shadow of a query fall upon them yet, where either of them has to answer for something that is nobody’s business but theirs alone. He enlisted making sure their bond stayed safe. He entrusted it to her protection with immense faith in their devotion to each other. He saw to it that the world acknowledged her association with him beyond their professional obligations, distancing it enough at the same time so all know they are not allowed in in any manner whatsoever, not even as a clickbait inquiry. Now, I come out of the wait more assured than ever. Mere weeks before his discharge, he picked up exactly where he left off. If not for Hyunnie and Aluu CEO-nim posting about the musical visit, I’d hazard a guess that the whole affair could have been well-shrouded. To the best of my knowledge, except for one solitary twitter post stating that the person spotted Hyunnie at the musical and a picture of Wook with a bunch of ladies, literally nothing emerged from that evening show. Thus it’s not much of a stretch to reason out that Hyunnie’s and CEO’s posts were deliberate. It’s still more probable that JiJi decided it so. Wook knows his comeback project discussions have become public even before his discharge… and wants those discussions to stay in the professional lane. People wanna talk about my future works, future co-stars, anticipation of all the different chemistries and such? Sure, let them, by all means… as long as they know it’s my work. Don’t confuse it with my personal life. That begins and ends with this lady. Pretty sure he got her the tickets. Pretty sure he had her chaperoned by their closest yet least controversial mutuals, both being CEOs of the salon. There was literally no hypothesis anybody could draw on seeing the two CEO onnies that would’ve negated, diminished or sidelined the fact that Hyunnie went to support Wookie (which might have been a different story had any other of their mutual acquaintances gone with her). Pretty sure he ensured that no one forgot he was in Hyunnie’s orbit as ever and he could do without another article about dating rumors with someone else, thank you very much. Hyunnie’s post not only became the last word in #armygirlfriendgoals, but also provided definite response material for Wook when he left the service and got the visitation question wherever he turned. Starting with this one: Vid credit to the owner and English translation credit to @riririru He had not even cleared the military base boundaries. Barely walked out, waved and greeted, said he wanted to eat a delicious meal and get back in shape and waited for the brief media Q&A with a smile. Mere seconds passed and not even a fractional measure of his boot-prints had imprinted upon the X spot before a Korean Merida shot the arrow many wanted to, but few dared. Reporter: Did Nam Ji Hyun-shi come to visit you? God bless her brave soul. She didn’t even ask how the past 20 odd months had been. The memory of the bomb was so fresh in the collective Korean minds that I could see in Ji Chang Wook’s eyes he was not really surprised. He knew it was coming, just not this soon. He had the answer ready, but hadn’t taken the time to phrase it and practice beforehand. Wook: Visit… I don’t think it can be considered as a visit, but we got to see each other briefly. She came to watch when I was doing the musical, we greeted each other that time. Point to Wook. Excellent strategy. All focus regarding visitation became centered on the one event that was public knowledge. The entire reference point of his answer was based on the musical meeting. If she has visited him in Cheorwon, it’s not for us to know. If he visited her during his off days, well, the reporter never asked him that, did she? I personally found his stance very confident with regards to ‘what’ he was prepared to say. The question was bound to pop up at a fanmeeting, Vlive, IV, magazine shoot, etc. He didn’t have time to polish it quite well though, but should someone ask him the same thing at a later date, we might get to see the refined version. Emcee: What did the other soldiers say about that? Wook: I didn’t tell them that I met her. In other words, it is nobody’s frickin’ business but ours what we do when we meet. Also, whether it’s his friends in Cheorwon or among the musical cast & crew, Wook doesn’t want other people’s words in his mouth regarding comments about him and Hyunnie in a merged context. Maybe in private, he may or may not speak to his trusted bunch about them as a pair, but the crowds on the other side of the line are not going to hear it from him, at least not now. That’s a dangerous venture because it would leave him out in the open as a target for more questions he does not want to answer now. Maybe his army buddies did speak to him about Hyunnie even if they didn’t meet her, but any loose threads would unravel his intentions to ‘say so far and no further.’ Emcee: Why? Why? Wook: Since the system only allowed the visitors to meet the person they wanted to meet. Which would’ve been rather convenient for JiJi in every sense, I have to admit. If they didn’t speak much to others about their meeting, they have to answer fewer questions and divulge even less. All things considered, the general consensus reasons out that such a visitors system prevails only in the actual camp—in this case Cheorwon—and it’s a very good probability, since Wook doesn’t want to touch the topic of a visit there with a ten-foot pole. Or maybe he wants us to discern such an implication without him having to spell it out and put himself on yet another spot. On the other hand, considering the occurrence on 12th April, I wouldn’t put it past Wook to have somehow managed to speak to Hyunnie alone before or after the musical. I mean, except for a handful of people, no one managed to interact with the cast on that singularly strange day. It’s JiJi after all, no wild is too wild for them. Emcee: What did you talk with her? Wook: I asked Ji Hyun to help me with the script, since she is very good at it. I remember asking her that. Emcee: Ah, for your next project? Wook: Yes, yes. On a side note, the lady reporter might as well have bought lottery tickets that day. All she had to do was nerve herself up for the first question and the rest of the info fell into her lap for free. The Emcee couldn’t have been more enthusiastic about having finally gotten Wook around that particular bend and finished the slew of questions with a tremendous climax that bears upon literally all of the questions and answers above this final one. They are all a ‘read-between-the-lines’ for this one, solitary response. We have never stopped talking, never stopped trusting, never stopped loving…. so much that she remains in me, and I in her. She is where I can be found, I where she can be. Recall the faith in Wook that I spoke of way above? The clever and dangerous beast that guards this bond beyond all earthly considerations? Those realizations stem from one source of testimony. It is that Ji Chang Wook always speaks about Nam Ji Hyun being present in his future. During the drama, he spoke of his need for her support during conscription. Now that his service is done, he openly declares her place in the next chapter of his life, one of her many roles being a sounding board for his professional decisions that are soon to follow, which imply that Wook has already denied any other links to himself before the journey has even resumed again. Wherever he is, he can see Hyunnie with him there…. and further too. He means to keep her, she means to stay and sooner or later, God willing, a future would arrive where the two forever become one.
  3. PART 14 Nia 1: Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Nia 2: O Lord! Nia 1: Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Nia 2: Not again! It’s been more than a week now! Nia 1: Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! SHE WENT TO HIS MUSICAL!!! Nia 2: More than a week ago! We squealed enough then, remember? Nia 1: A week ago, and you still haven’t forgiven me. It’s not like I- Nia 2: You almost got us booted out of the apartment! And we live alone. Nia 1: So it’s my fault Gertie doesn’t appreciate the frickin’ bomb- Nia 2: Yes. It’s called a bomb for a reason. Not everyone likes being lobbed with those. You nearly broke the bed and sent it down through her roof! Nia 1: What a night 'twas! (with a faraway look) I couldn’t find Fairy Godmum’s IG—she changed the name—and I went back to Hyunnie’s following list to check- Nia 2: I do NOT want to hear this again. Nia 1: -and I got the account and clicked and, the first thing I saw, O Lord, the first thing I saw- Nia 2: O boy… Nia 1: I mean, what the hell kind of coincidence is that? Out of the blue, I decided to check the account, and there it was! The latest post. Not even an hour old. I saw Hyunnie first, then the musical poster above her, then the whole picture, then ohmygawdohmygawdohmygawd- Nia 2: No. Don’t you- Nia 1: Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Nia 2: I hate that! Can’t you use a different vowel to squeal? Nia 1: (dancing the Ji-Geu-Deok) I love you girl, and I was too happy to point it out when you did, but the vowel you used on seeing the pic sounded positively guttural at the time. Nia 2: (looking somewhat contrite) I- I’m not proud of it. But at least that had an expiry. You’ve been doing this wherever we go! Nia 1: I can’t help it! I mean, yes, we knew the moment he said her name on national television with that pouty face, and serenaded to the kiss BTS at his last concert, and spoke about keeping on loving a hypothetical girlfriend through the military service… Yeah, we knew this was something serious enough. The guy’s practical through and through and always said stuff like not wanting to make things hard for a girl when he’s away. And then all of a sudden, he was kinda almost asking for a commitment from that hypothetical someone. I mean, he was hoping that the girl he loves would wait, but it was also like he was sure enough of his place in her life that he knew he could ask her to do that. Nia 2: I’ve always thought so too- Nia 1: Why 'too' when there's just one of us? (snickers lamely) Nia 2: (with her own faraway look) It was as if he knew he loved her, knew she loved him too and thought himself well within his rights to ask of her constancy. The first time I heard him, the power of that implication was so absolute… almost as if he was sure of his own devotion to her, and prayed that distance would not diminish it. When he said that he would cherish that love as a good memory, even if her heart changed before his return… I dared not say it then- Nia 1: It felt a sure hope to me, but I didn’t want to get ahead of myself. Nia 2: Exactly. When he said that, I couldn’t help thinking that maybe, just maybe, he was saying that so she does not feel any guilt. If she doesn’t love him anymore, he wouldn’t hold her against her will. But as long as she was his, he’d endure through time, distance and all else that fate brought, just so they could belong together. Nia 1: True that. He found juggling work and romance difficult enough, yet on the threshold of a huge milestone in his life, seemed willing to make the mother of all commitments. Army service is no joke in the relationship arena. Still there he was, promising before the world—to be hers, to be faithful and to keep a part of her with him forever, even if it was just a memory. Nia 2: The story just kept going from strength to strength thereafter. Nia 1: Or coincidence to coincidence. Her post on August 14th 2018, her birthday when she was largely missing and so was he. Nia 2: Yup. Out on a break and missing. Except for only solitary photo from his friend. Nia 1: And the weirdest out-of-the-blue video message to all soldiers during HDH commentary. Was there anything about the army in the acrostic poems Hyunnie and DO made? Which would certainly explain the line of thought. Otherwise, that was more out-of-the-place than the boom mic operator during JiJi’s laundry kisses. Nia 2: Don’t take me there. Nia 1: Aaaah… I know. (lightly slaps herself) But yeah, those were some very susanghe things. Nia 2: Some of the many. And just when the seas rolled drowsily, Hyunnie picked the ship up and plunked it right on top of a minefield. Nia 1: (reminiscences the musical visit post again) Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Nia 2: Shut it! Nia 1: You mean ‘Shut out’! Fairy Godmum knows. Nia 2: Fairy Godmum knows we know. Nia 1: Fairy Godmum knows we know she knows. C’mon, she posted a JiJi shipper’s chocolate bouquet and note, stuck JiJi’s pics in the same spot in the salon, and now takes along her baby girl to see the star boy’s musical. Nia 2: Their entire circle is genius. Nia 1: Must be all the fish they eat. Remember Jeeves? Nia 2: Must be. (starts ticking facts off her fingers) Wook’s been working with CEO Mi Young since eons now. Said CEO-nim knows he is being shipped mightily with Hyunnie. If Wook or Hyunnie didn’t want it, Mi Young-shi would hardly cosplay as a connecting dot between the two. To the best of my knowledge, she has not been clicked at any of the previous Shinheung musical shows. And the one time she does go, she takes Hyunnie. Credit duly given to the IG owner Nia 1: (lends her own fingers for the fact-checking) It’s only the two ALUU CEOs—Jung Mi Young and Kim Min Seon—and Hyunnie. Cannot see other members of Wook’s ALUU team, so they were either busy, went before and never posted on SNS, or went and posted something that escaped us so far, or… Nia 2: Or this was supposed to be a more-personal-than-usual support visit. Nia 1: Kekekekekeke! Hyunnie looks thoroughly out of place between the two ladies. In a professional capacity, they are the higher-ups carving out time together to support not only a beloved dongsaeng but also an important client. Even so, I can’t shake off the vibe that the two CEOs seem to be chaperoning their youngest sister on her date! Nia 2: Yeah. The small group, the people in it and their mutual association with Wook and Hyunnie even taken in separate contexts leave very little room for doubt that Hyunnie has long been acknowledged as a part of Wook’s circle, to an extent where the rest of the people in that circle not only do NOT deny any possible links between the two, but take a step further to voice their blessings openly. Nia 1: A hallmark, I remember, of SongSong’s courtship. Nia 2: A few similarities are definitely found here too. Nia 1: This is no VIP premiere with a long list of professional friends and acquaintance doing a collective 'Hwaiting'! When all is said and done, this is still a facet of his personal life as a soldier that the public is allowed into for the love of the country. How many co-stars and friends have we seen at the musical? That in itself should explain what he said long ago- his invitation was not merely for Hyunnie to visit him in the army. It was to be in his life beyond SP, beyond JiBong, beyond the temporary separation and upon the rest of the journey wherever it may lead. Nia 2: And Hyunnie wants to! I have not seen one reason, not one paltry reason, to believe that she thinks differently. Since before he even left, she has been as encouraging and supportive as she is now. She wants her 'Oraboni' to return safe and healthy. She wants him to know that the world can take a hint and she is just fine with that. That he is not alone in making claims and promises. That she is right there in his corner, as always. Nia 1: And that ‘Oraboni’? Aww, that ‘Oraboni’! She kills me every time she says that! Jaebal Hyunnie-ah, I wanna live long enough to see you walk down the aisle! Nia 2: (the thought renders her jelly-kneed, so she hurries and flops down on a seat before Nia 1 could point and poke fun) Um-hmm. Some ‘Oraboni’ that was. Equalled only by Wookie’s ‘Ji Hyun yangie’. Nia 1: They have more inside jokes than SP PD-nim had hives seeing their kisses. Nia 2: Like we didn’t? And don’t go there! Nia 1: But still, it’s thoroughly disconcerting when the two speak highly formal words while having gooey looks on their faces. Is that, like a… you know… a play- Nia 2: No! You are not taking me there! Nia 1: Jeez! It’s JiJi, it goes there more often than not. Nia 2: Gertie’s apartment is not the place for it to go there. Nia 1: Like she can hear us talking. 'Sall in the head, for God's sake! Nia 2: Maybe, but she can see the crazy faces. And one of your ‘Eeeeeeeeeees’ definitely came out. Why do you think she ran inside? Nia 1: She said she'd make juice. Nia 2: (raises an eyebrow) Like her life depended on it? Nia 1: Ah, I wondered why she closed the kitchen door behind her. Nia 2: The entire street parted like the Red Sea went we went out for a jog today! Nia 1: If they saw JiJi, they’d be no better. Or is that supposed to be ‘ no worse’? Anyways, you can't blame me when even Hyunnie likes all this shippy business. Nia 2: Uh-huh. Nia 1: She sees all those touchy and kissy JiJi videos- Nia 2: Who doesn't? Nia 1: She liked one too- Nia 2: Who didn't? Nia 1: Gertie. Nia 2: We are NOT siccing those on Gertie! She hasn't even made it past the Immaculate Conception! Nia 1: I'd say it's high time she at least joined the birds-and-bees circuit. Nia 2: Can we just give her the chocolates and go home, please?
  4. Annyeongasseyo to all JiJi lovers! It is the time of the year again that reminds us to be thankful each day, each moment, for all the graces we receive. To love and be loved, to cherish and be cherished, to be content and share that contentment with all that we hold dear to ourselves... may that be our celebration, our song, our joy. I join in the multitude of prayers for JiJi- for their health and happiness, strength and smiles, love and friendship. May each day bring Wookie & Hyunnie fulfillment, wisdom, lessons and laughter that they hold close in a way only they can. May the hearts they have touched and inspired across the globe stay constant in their hopes and dreams. May Christmas last forever...
  5. Heartiest congratulations to Ji Chang Wook on his 10th year in the industry!!! Everything about the image is raw- the set, the story, the scene about to play out, the make-up. Especially the make-up. A decade ago, Wook stood bathed in the afternoon sun and dared to play a card. He didn't think much about being an actor. It seemed like a cool thing to do and he liked doing it. There were apprehensions and fears, debts and doubts and dreams, so much to do, so much to be... But this look, this one look in his eyes, hasn't changed a bit over time- cagey yet warm, impish glints lending spark to deep pools of brown. There aren't many words to describe it, but over the past year, I saw it several times as I got to learn about all that he was, is and wishes to be. The heart, mind, soul, tears, smiles, struggles, reflections, sweat, prayers, fights, reconciliations, pains, joys and toils- everything that went into making 'the Ji Chang Wook' a face of Hallyu and, just as importantly, a beloved son, a dependable friend and a kind man remembered by all who come to know him. It has been a long way to this day, and yet not too long, for unto Wook, life is a constant present that unfolds with a peerless charm he is endlessly discovering. May it remain so, for he truly deserves it. Thank you Wookie for all the inspiration and joys. Let life conspire the choicest blessings and contentment for you and all that you love. May you ever grow and dream and live to the very best as you always have. Chukahamnida!
  6. How do I love thee, I couldn't finish counting the ways.... I love thee for all thou were, all thou art and all thou aspire to be, I love thee for the blessings and graces thou hast brought to me. Heavens grant that all thine desires and dreams shall be formed, In God's true time, for as long as thou shalt long. My prayer is my love shalt ever remain with thee, Remain thus, as thou art, for there is no charm found greater, no love more yearned, no beauty far radiant, than that which springs from thy heart. Seungil chuka hamnida, Ji Hyunnie. Saranghae.
  7. Civilizations rose and fell, wars were won and lost, great men and women have been born and have died, and Corporal Ji Chang Wook has successfully navigated a year of an important milestone in the life of a Korean man. He's going ahead with his military service with the same panache and peerless enthusiasm with which he approaches and embraces the other aspects of his life. And he is blessed indeed to be granted an opportunity that unifies his manifest talents with his duties as a son of the nation. Best wishes to him and the rest of the production team for the resounding success of 'Shinheung Military Academy' musical. As for us cruising the sea, life is chuggin' along mighty fine. We are blessed ourselves to be having so much downtime to soak in each detail and savor things at ease. Not to mention, JiJi tidbits and updates popping up every once in a while when worst-case scenarios were being played out this time last year. None of us were sure of what was to be, what awaited ahead, what could unfold. I myself didn't know parasocial separation anxiety could get so real as the moment I saw Wook with a 'Why so serious?' across his fabled broad frame, grinning and waving his goodbyes, helped even less by seeing Hyunnie's update the same day. A year later, we have many more reasons to keep the faith, many more reasons to celebrate these beautiful souls who found each other. We sail on, full of hope and love, full of promises of the good things yet to come. Are we asking too much of destiny? Of right timing? No... not when even the disarmingly pragmatic Wook doesn't miss the symbolism one bit. Today he is the same he was exactly a year ago. Quite literally. (Credit to respective owners for the re-posted images) For those interested in viewing the musical presscon, here you go:
  8. Hello everyone! This day last year, I was busy rationalizing a lot of things. 1st Presscon: Wook's record-length drippy stares, mimicking, saying he waited 8 years to meet Hyunnie, she was so sexy she made him burst out laughing. 2nd Presscon: Saying Hyunnie was bearing with all his antics, he was like a kid around her, their chemistry was good. SP 'BBTS': Berserk Behind The Scenes. 'Nuff said. Post SP Interviews: I am waitin' for the denial to drop in 3....2....1......... Wah, nothing? C'mon Wook, do it just like you did the previous times. Say 'Oppa-dongsaeng'! Say 'Just doing my job'! Say 'Was my acting so good everyone thinks we are dating?' Saying something to discourage the tidal wave of speculations, dammit! Jiscovery: Showing fans the worst put-together OST MV of all time (3 spliced scenes and one of them was a minute-long no-cut kiss scene). And until the end of last year explicitly stating he wasn't dating at the moment, had no plans to do so this close to enlistment. Then going ahead during the concert and answering question about a hypothetical girlfriend in a very non-hypothetical manner. The words he used could even find their way into some Mills & Boon number. He went from this in Nov 2016... (Credit to source https://www.hancinema.net/the-k2-ji-chang-wook-turning-thirty-this-year-becoming-a-man-101027.html) - The year's almost over. Do you think you've stood by your resolutions? Ji Chang-wook: I don't feel anything special with the end of the year coming up. It's been a busy year so I wish my New Year's is a quiet one. I'll be joining the military next year and I think I'll come out younger. I wouldn't want to see someone right now too because she'll be all alone when I leave. About joining the army, I'm worried and anxious at the same time. - So romance would have to wait till your done with the military? Ji Chang-wook: I've never really had long lasting relationships. It's not easy balancing work and romance at the same time. I'm lonely and it's sad that I don't have anyone next to me. It's even sadder to say my 20s went by without anyone special. I think romance would be different in my 30s. ...to this in July 2017 (Credit to vid owner and IG uploader) Goodbye Proposal Vlive: SP tops best 3. Variants of Ji-Hyun, Ji-Yoon & Ji-Eun, get 'Hwaiting', 'Wait for me', 'Saranghe' and such from Mr.Oppa who manages to catch those names from the million comments flooding into his chatbox. This is not even counting every minuscule detail that has been theorized, analyzed and expounded on in the previous 1590 pages. These are only some of the main ship alerts that I had been trying to present to my own brain in a sane, non-lethal manner. I was already being tossed about in the turbulence SongSong ship was dealing with at the time and was in no way whatsoever ready to voluntarily put my heart into another blender. And the stakes were so much higher with JiJi. No way, no way, no way.... And then this happens. (Credit to IG uploader) I vividly remember returning home that evening and opening this thread to screams, squeals, incoherent ramblings and people tearing up. Pandemonium had erupted and how! One look at this vid and despite my sense of self-preservation, despite my cautious approaches all along, despite everything, I was boarding this ship with or without my will. I have this MBC interview and Park Seul Gi to thank for that final push else I may never have waited for the Holy Grail that was yet to come. His expression, tone and words convinced me enough to shell as much money as it took to get my hands on the DCut. It's been months and I have still to recover from its effects. On second thoughts, knowing JiJi's charms, I may never will, but ah, it's still a pleasurable way to die... Down the memory lane, these were my thoughts circa July 23rd 2017. Hereby reposting my take on MBC IV So here's wishing myself happy anniversary for that leap of faith! It has been the best and I believe it will only keep getting better. All thanks to JiJi and to the wonderful family here. I am so happy I met you...
  9. Seungil chuka hamnida uri captain!!! Warm and happy returns of the day to Ji Chang Wook! May all that he aspires to be, all the endeavors that he strives for, all the dreams he wishes to fulfill and all the prayers in his heart come true in good time. May he remain strong in mind, body and soul to do even more incredible things in future. May his home be warm, smiles be wide and love be sublime. May he always be surrounded by his loved ones, creating beautiful memories through a lifetime. May he live long to see his children's children and his descendants be as countless as the stars (Despite the world population, we need more of Wook's gene-pool). May he always glow bright and spread the warmth and light to all who look upon him for inspiration. Biking and creak-dancing his way through this journey, I pray he stays just the way he is, except for the bachelor status.
  10. Seungil chukka hamnida JiJi thread!!! This time last year, we were beginning to live the magic and the charm has only gotten stronger with each passing day. Still here, still happy, still hoping that love will find a way. Fondly remembering and deeply missing @stucked. I am starting to believe that nothing is absolutely coincidental in JiJi's loveland, for our founder was a harbinger to what this thread was gonna do to all of us here. Things could hardly get any cheesier than me playing Lionel's 'Stuck on you'... I spent the day combing through my archives, feeling just a tad bit nostalgic about last June and reliving many gems collected over time. Like: This scintillating edit that looks as real as real can get. I still recall the jolt I got the first time I laid eyes on what seemed like a dream come true. It might as well have been taken from JiJi's wedding album, but since it's not, here's praying they'll have one down the years... some fine day. This is a fine ship, a warm home and a place full of memories, delight and love. I pray it keeps sailing that way.
