  1. Not SA related, but RIP to a beautiful soul. My condolences to all concerned: https://www.soompi.com/article/1358932wpp/breaking-sulli-passes-away
  2. I wouldn’t be too concerned about Dragons Bros and what it may or may not have revealed about SA. I like to keep things in context. IIRC, leading up to the airing of this show, shipper expectations were high since we got some good pics/vids about SA. It’s been a long time so I don’t remember exactly what those were, but many shippers expected good news. Then, either while this show aired or shortly after (again, it’s been a long time), we learned that KJK had joined My Ugly Duckling. That meant that any good news about SA were shelved due to the format of MUD. Looking at this within the framework of Dragon Bros, if they knew KJK’s work plans, they would have done their best to not reveal too much about SA. They may even have tried to misdirect, especially CTH since everyone looked to him for clues re: KJK’s love life. Toward the end of the series, his friends teased him about girls visiting him once he moved out, with HKM hilariously using the excuse of those girls wanting to eat ramen with KJK (wink, wink, LOL). IMO, this was a clear set up for KJK’s upcoming participation on MUD. While the bros were on a trip to make lasting memories, they still had jobs to do, which on a personal level meant supporting each other’s projects. I agree.
  3. LOL. Sometimes I can’t believe it myself. But, yes, it’s largely been (at least for me) because despite this being more of a rollercoaster than a ship, we’ve been blessed with SA both being on a long running show, at times giving us indigestion, yet always gracing us with little moments that clearly suggest their closeness (sometimes more). All those little moments have added up after nearly 10 years. Frankly, this fact about SA has been both a blessing and a curse, but I still enjoy shipping them, so I’m still here. Very glad you’ve joined us, btw. A belated welcome to you as well as all the new members.
  4. Feeling a bit nostalgic today, so here’s a quick clip of a real SA moment. Can’t deny their closeness. Around 2015, I think. SA were fired in 2016. Credits as indicated. Thanks. I don’t know if there’s a full vid of the awards show, though I think SBS streams it every year so you may be able to find it on YT or even Naver. As for SA riding together to the awards show, there was fancam footage, a bit blurry but still obvious that SA rode together in the back seat. I wasn’t able to find it just now, but you may see it as you read through the earlier posts. To add to the context as shared by @Adines Nugraha, SA’s closeness was further evidenced by how SJH talked KJK through his heartache when it was time to join everyone in the ballroom. IIRC from fan comments who were there, KJK stayed in or near the elevator, at one point leaning against it not being able to move, and she (and HH) stayed behind to console him. As @linzer03 said, he spoke for both of them against SBS, but she stepped in when he needed her most. They’re both so strong in their own ways, perfectly supportive of each other, plus also quite complimentary as per previous discussions re: horoscopes and such. While some may not believe in those things, SKs do as we’ve seen with the FT eps. If SA are just friends, they’re the best kind. No matter what, there’s always been something “more” about them. Everyone’s welcome to conclude as they wish, of course. Cheers!
  5. It’s been such a long time that I don’t remember exactly when the news came out, so maybe someone else can answer that for you. What I do remember was watching SA suffer through the December end of the year SBS awards with everyone staring at them and watching their reactions. From the moment BEFORE they stepped out of their car (IIRC they rode together in the back seat while LKS sat in front) to when SJH teared up and KJK tried to hold back his own tears watching LKS openly cry while getting his award, their every move was scrutinized. I don’t know about anyone else but to regular RM-fan me (not SA-shipping me) who barely got any sleep because I followed every development for days, SA’s bond was so strong that night that no way was it forged largely because of being fired together. For sure, all the members were close, but SA were unusually closer. People can judge the reasons for that closeness themselves, but yes to answer your 2nd question, it’s very possible: not just “delusional” shippers but also regular I-fans and KNetz wondered if SA were fired because they dated. As someone already noted, rumors about a SA romance have swirled for years. At first because of people naturally joking about two good looking celebs, but later because those two make it quite hard to think a romance between them is a joke because of their own actions. As you read through the rest of the thread posts, you’ll see for yourself why so many of us are still around. I don’t have any experience with shipping except for SA (they’re my first and last ship), but I think they’re quite unusual in the shipping world. We’ll find out for sure one day soon if we’re right, but as of right now, in my humble opinion, they’re together and have been so for a while. Someone posted that SJH’s poem was an open goodbye to KJK. I disagree. SA are intensely private. There’s no reason to publicly say goodbye when they’ve never publicly acknowledged their relationship. Stay tuned, and happy shipping everyone.
  6. @carambsk, IMO, YJS “blessed” SA that day because everyone (including him) thought RM had ended. There was no reason to set up a LL, plus SA had just been hurt so no way was YJS stupid or a bad person to want to hurt them more by starting romance rumors about them. Instead, in every way possible, he was trying to help them, perhaps trying to pre-block netizen backlash when SA announce. He talked about marriage around 1:08. In case anyone still thinks this was for a LL, remember that talks about SA getting married or taking advantage of YJS’s words for a LL were quickly dropped once it was agreed that RM would continue. All the members and staff seemingly got amnesia, LOL.
  7. @Adora Dark, my thanks, as well. We don’t always share truly private things here because... well this is the internet after all, so I’m especially appreciative of you doing this. In the same vein though nowhere close to what you did, I want to share something from my private life. Some of you already know this, but for those who don’t, my sister (who knows RM but is not an avid viewer) surprised the heck out of me one day. She once watched an ep with me, and casually asked if SA were “intimate.” IIRC, KJK was massaging SJH’s lower back. I almost fell off the couch coz I never expected her question. I never brought up the issue of SA with her before, so it wasn’t like I was leading her on. When I asked her why she thought they were together, she looked at me like I was crazy. She said it was too obvious. While not an avid viewer, she always noticed he treated SJH differently. While he was a gentleman with everyone, he was “more” with SJH. As a shipper, I’m often obsessed about details, yet ironically because I’m so involved, I miss out on some basic things, namely stuff that are obvious to even the most casual viewer. While none of us can be sure until SA reveal either way, comments like those from my sister and your friend boost my confidence that SA are indeed “more.” Oh, and since I’m a very fair person, I’ll trade my name for yours. Nice to meet you, Helena. I’m Marina.
  8. Thank you for explaining, and I understand about the negative effects of tabloid articles and rumors especially in SK where even a hint of something remotely negative forces artists and agencies to preemptively apologize and engage in self-reflection. Still, the difference for me, and a big reason why I still ship SA, is the fact that they seem to be perfectly okay with people associating them. Plus, while I-fans and SA shippers are more pro-SA as a possible couple, the fact remains that the RM staff pushed the LL themselves. They can’t be doing that just for us non-SK folks and to push attendance at overseas fan meets. Still, this is just me wondering out loud. Also, just for the record, I do understand and appreciate cultural differences. What seems perfectly acceptable to me may not be to others, and that’s cool. Thanks again for explaining.
  9. I wonder why they’re so pissed. Is it the connection to KJK, or because SJH fans think these articles are somehow insulting to her? I haven’t read the articles myself, but unless they’re anti-SJH, what’s the harm in a bit of speculating, especially since she’s never really denied the rumors herself? I get that both she and KJK paid lip service to the “we’re just colleagues, friends, etc...” spiel, but they’re now in an acknowledged LL, plus SJH herself actively participated in the LL. I understand feeling the need to defend my bias, but is there really a need to do so in this case? IMO there’s nothing wrong with going along with the flow especially when my bias is doing the same. And, before anyone judges me as being anti-SJH, I’m a big SJH fan. The difference may be that I’m also a big KJK fan. Regardless, with all due respect, everyone should just chill and enjoy whatever our biases choose to show us. No one’s forcing anyone to do anything, especially two very strong-willed people like SJH and KJK. A pre-emptive apology to anyone who feels like I’m shading them. I’m doing no such thing. I’m honestly puzzled by the bad feelings. Peace, all. Very sincerely.
  10. Awww .... thanks. I love that YJS smiled when he saw your SA bag. I can just imagine the teasing when he gives them your gift, LOL. No reason to be sorry. I really appreciate you reporting back like this. Totally didn’t expect it, so I’m beyond grateful. As for your lack of vids, that’s cool too. I prefer the first person account anyways, especially if it comes from one of our own. Hopefully you can capture some stuff at the fanmeet, but if not due to security or whatever, at least you’ll be there. The most important thing is that you enjoy yourself. Anything else you can share will be extra. Stay safe. Thanks, again!!!!
  11. I knew you were going to the fanmeet, but I didn’t know you were meeting them at the airport. The whole thing sounds hectic and frankly a bit dangerous. I’m sorry you lost your glasses, but I’m glad you’ll get them back soon. Thanks so much for going through that for all of us. As for KJK holding your glasses, SJH relying on him, and both basically watching out for each other, wow. How are the members in real life, especially SA? How does it feel to be so close to them? Oh, and which 2019 SA pics did you include? Sorry about all the questions, but we’ve never had any of our active thread members at the fanmeets, so I’m trying to live through you, LOL.
  12. One of the all time great endings of RM. Absolutely loved the moment when they opted to tear each other’s tag at the same time. https://www.soompi.com/article/366322wpp/tiger-jk-and-yoon-mi-raes-kiss-is-best-ending-in-running-man-history
  13. Not directly SA-related, but interesting bit about how celebs secretly date:
  14. Agreed. I’m surprised that some people are discouraged by SJH saying she doesn’t have a BF. They must be new to K-Entertainment or our fandom. No way would an entertainer and especially an actress of SJH’s standing casually burst out the truth. What matters is what some of you already noted, that she seemed to have momentarily slipped up, plus that she sounded very much like KJK when she addressed her yet-to-be born partner. Either she saw him say that and followed his lead, or discussed the situation with him and they came up with the same script. Whatever the truth, the similar response suggests a matter so personal they had to somehow share its messaging. IMO, it will be especially telling if in the near future SA’s interactions and skinship increase. If SJH’s BF is not KJK, no way would he stay publicly close to her. Totally not his thing. Same with her if he has someone else. But, if the interactions and skinship stay the same or increase, we can cautiously anticipate some good news. No matter the identity of SJH’s BF, let’s stay supportive. She deserves the very best. If not KJK, someone else equally wonderful. I’m also glad that one of her most memorable, albeit painful moments involved KG leaving. She expressed exactly what us longtime RM fans always hoped, that the original 7 stayed until the very end. How completely kind and wonderful she was to encourage everyone to support him. There’s a special bond between the originals that can never be broken, something I’m sure they all cherish. This puts another light on that moment several eps back when she was asked about her past and current, aka KJK, LL partner. She casually said “KG, who?” and p.issed off a lot of fans. It may not have looked like it to some people, but I thought she was kind to publicly let KG go. Kind both to him and the man sitting right next to her, who couldn’t manage to hide his smile.
  15. Dang, there goes KJK’s competition! His Ji Hyo (not Twice’s) must be so disappointed .... Just kidding, all. Congrats to the new couple. https://www.soompi.com/article/1343373wpp/breaking-twices-jihyo-and-kang-daniel-reportedly-dating
