  1. LMH in Legend of the Blue Sea: Thanks for all the comments!! Legend of the Blue Sea was the first LMH work that I watched live--and by live, I mean that I got up at 6:00 am to stream SBS. I watched again, later in the day, with subtitles. And then, usually by the end of the day (for me), I would go to Dramabeans for the recap. After watching for a few weeks, I finally created a Soompi account (after lurking for more than a year) in order to comment on the drama. Lots of theories were put out by the viewers about the story, but looking back, I don't think the writer/pd meant it to be mysterious or confusing. There are two mermaids and two love stories. They made the mermaids different colors to make it clear. But it took us all a while to figure it out. I think LOTBS is beautiful to look at--the locations, the styling, the colors, the actors, the two timelines. LMH is always handsome, but I think it is his height that makes the Joseon attire look good. I think both LMH and JJH showed some cute charms from the start. I remember that the song that played with the original airing of this scene was "Clair" by Gilbert O'Sullivan. It really adds to the charm. (But I'm guessing that permissions/copyrights are the reason it was switched to the BOF music for replay.) I think LMH gets better with each project, so that makes LOTBS my favorite so far. Now, we wait to see what happens next ...
  2. LMH in Bounty Hunters: Thanks for all the comments! We all seem to have a similar reaction. The biggest sadness is that we don't get to hear his voice. His action scenes are great, but overall the movie is weak. Unlike his other works, this is only the second time I've watched this. My expectations were high the first time--I was thinking James Bond--and it turned out to be Charlie's Angels @Kris Silva. This time my expectations were lower, and I actually enjoyed it a little more. Some of my favorites: Getting upset because they spoiled his peeling the apple in one piece: Being afraid of cats: Waking up to children (the ones he shared his Ferrero Rocher with ): Remember also that he did a song for the movie: @gtLmh0622 I hope you get to see him!!
  3. Yes! I'm glad that many great Minoz are returning, but I really miss Lee Kyu-hyeon ajhussi, too. He's been together with LMH for so long. He took LMH to the training center, and he even showed up unexpectedly at Suseo. I saw him once with Park Bo-gum, which is okay, but I want him back! \ credit to owners
  4. Thanks for the comments @CallieP @Lindyloo421 @CarolynH @msdot @syntyche ! You made some very good points. This is so well said! Thanks for sharing the song lyrics; they really show us the theme of this movie. This is the scene that had the most impact on me: "When will we live like humans?" I like historical films a lot, and don't have a problem with the gangster topic, and I really like the theme here, but violence and nudity is not my cup of tea. In my opinion, the same topics and themes can be covered just as effectively in a less graphic way. I thought it was a good choice and an excellent performance by LMH. FYI, here is the link to the GB thread (which has been archived): https://forums.soompi.com/topic/339199-movie-2015-gangnam1970-강남-1970new-trailer-p17/page/26/
  5. The easiest way to calculate "age" according to the Korean system is to ask: "during how many years have I been alive?" or "how many years have I experienced?" For example, LMH was born 22 June 1987, so he has been alive during: 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19. So, LMH has been alive during 33 years (and that started in January). In Korea, they don't think of "age" as a number that represents the duration of your existence starting with your birth to the current day.
  6. From the AsianWiki plot summary, “The Devil is released into the human world and soon opens a door into a parallel world. The Devil asks if he lived a better life in the other world, if he could live in the other world.” I wonder if the King will have to choose between his two parallel lives.
  7. That's the cruel irony: we'll see him less when his service is over. Thanks for all the posts! I've gotten so far behind. I binged all of Heirs back in January because I knew I would be busy. I'm still busy, but I'm getting excited for D-Day. It will be fun to see what Minoz do. @Latifah_ (I noticed that your tag was working and had to try it myself.) We're all so envious right now. Have fun! @Kris Silva is back; now let's look for @pixie0622.
  8. LMH in Heirs episode 5: Thanks @CarolynH and @CallieP ! KIm Tan seems all soft and smitten and adorable and poetic. What will happen now that "Lucifer is back?"
  9. LMH in Heirs episode 4: Thanks @CarolynH and @CallieP ! It's cute to watch the hide-and-seek discovery of who the new girl is living in Tan's house! Only in k-drama do you meet a girl and then find out she's moved into your house--love it! I feel no sympathy for Rachel. She's doing a great job of being unlikeable.
  10. LMH in Heirs episode 3: Thanks @CarolynH @CallieP and @syntyche !! I agree. This is a really great scene--my favorite from this episode. I feel a lot of sympathy for Kim Tan. I think Won is being too harsh, but he has more experience and is more cynical (or realistic?) about the world they live in. The 1% of the 1% don't live the way the rest of us do. I like the gleam in his eye. What is he thinking?
  11. LMH in Heirs episode 2: It's too early to know what to make of Kim Tan. He seems sensitive and introspective, but we keep getting hints that he is a troublemaker, too. He isn't happy exiled off by himself, and seeing Eun-sang awakens something in him and brings out the clever "Do I like you?" I don't think the sparks would fly like they do if KT and ES had met in their normal surroundings in Korea.
  12. LMH in Heirs episode 1: Thanks @CarolynH and @CallieP My few thoughts: I learned some things from reading the comments at Dramabeans. For example, the American actors are so terrible because they can't use union actors. The California scenes are cringey for me to watch, but I am very forgiving. Javabeans made a point I hadn't thought of: that Heirs is set up like a modern-day sageuk, with the king, the princes, the palace intrigue, the concubine, the political maneuverings, etc. I always hate the bullying (Young-do), and wish it didn't exist. There is a lot of stuff introduced, but the sizzle in this episode is in Kim Tan's stares.
  13. Final thoughts on LMH in Faith: Thanks recappers and everyone for your comments! I love this too! Yes, I agree! I think the ending was appropriate. I know that they did hug and kiss later, and I like ending with the tender, tear-filled smiles that came first. The ending shot with the tree is beautiful. You are right! The relationships make Faith great. And I think the love we saw between CY and ES was deep and meaningful, worth aspiring to. From episode 23: I like tall, long-legged LMH with big, warm hands, a deep voice, high laugh, ready smile, and kind heart.
  14. Searching Soompi Forums is nuts! I had to do a Google search "shopping king soompi forum" to find it. https://forums.soompi.com/en/topic/388838-drama-2016-shopping-king-louie-쇼핑왕-루이/ Welcome @fitzsimmons!
