  1. I am so surprised to see him post directly!! Aww, how lovely to hear from him! I remember him once saying that he didn't really mark holidays and special days very much, although he was aware when he would have say, a debut anniversary, that fans would celebrate it. Aww, it's so nice to hear back from him today. What a kind response to fans. We are fans of not only an exceedingly good actor, but a kind and decent person as well. Be happy forever, Jong Suk ssi!
  2. Han Hyo Joo Considering Offer For “The Pirates” Sequel That Kang Ha Neul Is Also In Talks For FILM Mar 24, 2020 by J. Lim Han Hyo Joo may be returning soon with an exciting new film. On March 24, it was reported that Han Hyo Joo would be appearing in the upcoming “The Pirates” sequel. In response, a source from her agency BH Entertainment stated, “Han Hyo Joo is currently positively considering a role in the sequel to ‘The Pirates.'” If Han Hyo Joo agrees to the role, it will be her first movie in two years since the 2018 film “Illang: The Wolf Brigade.” The upcoming film will be the sequel to hit 2014 film “The Pirates,” which attracted more than 8.6 million moviegoers. Kang Ha Neul is currently in talks to appear in the film as well. (Photo above from the Star News article, that also mentions Lee Kwang Soo and Kwon Sang Woo in the cast, and article from Soompi. See https://star.mt.co.kr/stview.php?no=2020032414482307328&VNS&pDepth=news&pDepth1=issue&pDepth2=exclusive and https://www.soompi.com/article/1390133wpp/han-hyo-joo-considering-offer-for-the-pirates-sequel-that-kang-ha-neul-is-also-in-talks-for) The first Pirates movie is full of action and humor. I really hope HJ takes this, it would be the kind of role she's interested in (action; there really is a lot for the female lead if it's anything like the first one). And if it comes out in 2021, and assuming JS has a project shortly after the military, we could have something to look forward to from each of them.

  4. Haha! I've always been impressed by how wide he can open his eyes when showing comedic shock. Great visual!
  5. You can find it at akbobada.com. (See here for direct link: http://www.akbobada.com/searchAll.html?searchKeyword=형을위한노래&searchFlag=10&searchSecod=&viewFlag=null&artistOrderBy=null&searchSelect=null&searchSelectName=null) The site is fantastic. They don't usually have much in the way of background music, but OSTs that are sung, yes, they have many of those from Kdramas. There is a charge, but it's very cheap for sheet music. (1200 won, however that translates in your currency. It's around $1.34 USD.) If you do not speak Korea, they have a link to an English guide for using the site at the top of the page. Or, you could try googling the name in English or Korean (형을 위한 노래 from the drama "사랑의 불시착") and "sheet music" (or 아보) to see if anyone has sounded it out and made their own sheets.
  6. JS and Krystal are seriously the most accurate rendition of teenage siblings I have ever seen on screen, lol. It's quite nice to imagine oppa taking care of little sister, but in reality on a day to day basis, oppa might have to be defending himself against little sister. (Of course when threatened by an outside source, both suddenly have each other's backs.) That fictional family is one I recognize well, and it always makes me smile when I come upon them again.
  7. Can I just say? I love the fan art. All of it. It's so cool that people from all over the globe want to draw this person. I love all the different artistic interpretations.
  8. I find such fan clubs so heartening. JShine in particular has done a LOT of good in the world. I appreciate those who openly share positive information about JS and allow/encourage sharing of such. I appreciate the attention they give to translating information into both English and Chinese. And then they go the extra step and organize ways that fans can make a tangible contribution to the world. To anyone here who is part of this or another such fan club: Thank you!
  9. Aw, I'm proud to be his fan, too. I hope that 100 million won punches coronavirus hard and makes a big dent in it! (I am MAD at coronavirus, and worried about people in all affected places. )
  10. I was wondering if they would close the cafe at some point. Please be healthy, everyone! No matter what country you are in. And of course we wish all the best health to Jong Suk ssi and his people, too.
  11. Happy birthday to our lovely Han Hyo Joo! Love her stories and hope she has many more to share with us. (PS turn on the sound to this--the fan who posted it played the violin herself in it, and it's lovely!)
  12. According to the banner, KN is the sender of the truck. As much as people want to see JS, it's not reasonable for him to be running a truck when he's currently at work at his public service job. If it was him, a LOT of people would notice, no?
  13. I feel like online comments are always going to trend to the negative. Basically, online trolls will criticize people for their faults (ie for not being "the best,"), but once you reach the top, the same people simply cannot handle someone having it all, so they immediately begin to tear that person down. Don't think about miserable people living their lives online in miserable ways. Be happy for all the good in the world--which includes a fantastic drama! A couple of observations about the drama. While it was horribly tragic for our second lead guy to die, I think that it cemented in Dan's mind the fact that there really was a guy who loved her more than his own life. (She felt hurt that RJH would risk so much for Seri earlier, but here is a guy who literally would do that for her, too.) Also, another thing I like about kdramas (as opposed to western storytelling) that really came out in this is that for every role, there is the positive and negative side. Western stories sometimes take a negative character through such a transformation that they turn into someone else entirely. They give up that role and take on another. I've observed that in kdramas, it's more a transformation to find your own best self (instead of turning into someone else). Seri could have gone to NK and decided that her old life was soulless, and given up the store, the clothing line, the whole lifestyle. Instead, she came back and discovered how to humanize her role. She used her position to better the lives of her employees, to bring cheer to the ahjummahs over the border with the cosmetic line for them, etc. I've seen this in other dramas, too (the guy in Masters Sun comes to mind), and I really like it. We can't just turn into someone else. We have to look for our own best strengths and choose the positive side of ourselves over the negative. As for the ending...the real life future of NK and SK remains an unwritten book. I choose to hope that someday there will be a peaceful, happy ending there, and I imagine in the drama that it happened and that they did get married and live happily ever after in Switzerland and got their twins and everything else they wanted.
  14. I had a discussion elsewhere over this. We concluded that it must be in Romansch (one of the four national languages of Switzerland) because it isn't French, German, or Italian.
  15. You know...from here on out, every time I see one of the "ducklings" in another show, I'm going to be waving at them and smiling that they got to visit down south again. It will be the little story I tell myself in my head... that they finally figured out what casting agencies were, and had a chance to go back. (Even just seeing the subinyoo post above makes me want to take them all home with me...) They sure did a good job of selling Switzerland in this drama, too. There is no freaking way you could ever get me on that suspension bridge, but that glorious mountainside, sure!
  16. The moment in the bus when the one duckling looked out the window at SK and said, We'll never come back here again, will we? And the other guy said, probably not, but we'll remember it from time to time. From that moment on, I was a sobbing ball of tears and snot, seriously. Seri rushing to the dividing line didn't help, lol. I was so glad that Man Bok (my hero, lol) was finally able to have a job that didn't force him to rat everyone out. I LOVED how Seri made the cosmetics line based on her village friends. She knew that stuff would make it over the border. RJH's dad was the man in this one. Great performance from that actor! And of course our lovely OTP, with such wonderful chemistry and acting. Every detail, from the script to the directing to the acting to music to even the unseen people like the stylists--so well done. This one ranks among my very top dramas of all time. I enjoyed the storyline very much, but it made the leap off the screen, and I find myself thinking about all kinds of real life situations in an entirely new way. I appreciated the way it made us see North Korea not as a shadowy mystery, but as simply a place where real people live. The drama felt like a love letter to all of Korea, North and South, and a love letter to humans in general. I'm so glad I watched it.
  17. Congratulations to Parasite and also to Korea! I think that even those of us who are not Korean are thrilled to cheer for "our" team when it comes to movies and TV.
  18. I'm like a one person fan club for Man Bok. That character arc is so heartfelt and piercing. The other people in my house were giving me alarmed looks when I was cheering for him in this most recent episode. He is awesome!
  19. Yes, I can hear her say "seonbae anira" (not just the seonbae, ie JS, but also all the staff, manager, fellow actors and director on set, etc.). Sounds like she's trying to deflect the reporter's irrelevant question and get back to the topic at hand, ie this drama that she is actually in.
  20. Me too. On the plus side, it could a) entertain people who are going crazy cooped up in quarantine, and b) they could perhaps get some extra revenue off of it if they aired it now (and exported it to the various foreign fans interested). If it can generate income without requiring possibly infected humans to interact, it might be good. (Just thinking that the economy could face a bit of a slow time if so many businesses are shuttered and people are quarantined to stop the spread of the virus. I um, don't know much about economics, but I keep hearing news stories about some delays in moving shipments from point A to point B given the circumstances. Which would have some kind of effect on some businesses, right?) But in any case, the most important thing is people's health. Really feeling concerned about everyone in the path of the virus. Also--JS looks soooooo little in that post with the shoes! He has really grown up, hasn't he?
  21. JL has such an interesting feel to it. Like, I can see that in some scenes they are wearing modern clothes and so it must be the current time period, but the sets and sometimes the clothes have really quite a feel of the past as well. I'm so interested in seeing what it looks like to have a few Koreans in a Chinese production (I guess they dub them into Chinese?). It looks really good, I hope it airs soon.
  22. I so hope that this time, JL really is going to come out. It's been so long since it was filmed, and it will be so long before there is a new work from JS. Plus it would be a good distraction for all those who are under quarantine! Please, really, I hope they bring it out this year.
