  1. To quote a Cnet comment I saw last time, signal house is only a miniature environment. Since the world is so big, ED and MJ's next lover could be out there somewhere. I wouldn't worry that much about ED and MJ. Back then when the show just ended, there was a rumour going around based on ig that ED had a girlfriend then after the show. Whether it's true or not I'm not too sure, but the girl looked pretty. There was a video analysis on whether a good guy has any charms. It should be this one (no subs though, so I don't understand the content). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXL2fbXNThI As for Weibo, KY, JH, GH and IW all have 1, though the more active ones would be JH and GH (GH knows Chinese, I'm not sure if JH is getting someone to translate for her). I think JH, MJ and GH are all quite popular with Chinese fans. IW likely created one at the request of fans. Small update: after MJ,GH and JM uploaded a photo of them together, now JH, IW, and MJ uploaded a photo together (alliance v2 haha)
  2. I'm not too sure about the exact analysis and the video has been taken down. The rough context from what I get from Cnet posts is that the two brothers were doing a personality analysis of the 4 girls and negative points were brought up during JH's part. (I'm not sure about the other girls) There's no exact details though. Since Cnets are predominantly JH fans and KY-JH shippers (this applies to Knets too, some Cnets warned that you shouldn't bring in the idol fandom culture for this show), there could be a certain bias at work when criticising the two brothers' analysis. To be honest, from my point of view, everyone in the house except ED and MJ have points that they could have done better on (Cnets posts also reflect this trend). The analysis could have been taken as constructive criticism, but then again it's a issue of perpectives. To be as neutral as possible (because I do not have the full information), you can say that the prof's analysis was not that good about JH, so it could be possible that JH didn't have a great impression due to that.
  3. I don't think Shiyoon's IG is a personal account, it's likely managed by his agency and posts are formal and offficial. @Happy Sheep may know more. There were some not so pleasant stuff that happened with prof yang's analysis of JH (not on the show, but on his youtube, which was taken down). As for Hyejin, I'm not too sure. It could be that the style of the ig posts don't match JH's preferences. There was a youtube analysis by the 3 guys' youtube channel about JH-KY meeting in the special episode. I may translate it in full from the Chinese sub if I have time, but to start with a brief summary, KY wasn't comfortable in the meeting and there was distance between the two. As for future progression, what the guys analysed is that for the relationship to go well, JH has to be the one to initiate meetings, not KY. Given how KY was acting slightly distant in the special, JH may also take a step back, so as a result, the relationship did not go well as what the current IG situation shows if your deduction is accurate.
  4. From Cnet translation so far, even the interview that I mentioned before with the 4 girls together had no new content, so Cnets were asking what was really the point of the interview. To sidetrack really hard into HS2 territory, the aftermath of HS2 ending is still felt among Cnets now. They call it the HW PTSD (though they say love catcher 2 was worse). I read something really interesting that likely explains a lot about why Cnets really dislike HW even now (they are more nuanced about YJ and HJ). I'll start with the pd interview saying that the team really didn't expect HW to choose HJ at the end and it seems a lot changed after the final trip which they don't know why. To put into context, out of anyone involved in the show, the pd team really has the god's view of point in the show since they have all the camera footage. To even confuse the pd team would mean that you are hiding a lot on the show or not all your actions on the show were truthful. The next part would be a suspected pd reveal, which mentions that in this show, all the HW-HJ 1 to 1 interactions/dates were broadcast, which implies that there's nothing else on this that the pd team did not broadcast. After watching both HS2 and HS3, HS2 with less episodes still had more even distribution of footage among the different lovelines. To be able to broadcast all of the HW-HJ interactions with so little episodes to work with really shocked the Cnets. They questioned that with so little HW-HJ interactions, pd showed so much of HW-YJ conflict scenes to try to explain HW's final choice but there's no denying that there were a lot of sweet HW-YJ scenes broadcast in there too. A Cnet conclusion: HW was trash for leaving 2 girls hanging and then making such a sudden switch for the final choice. A Cnet mentioned YJ's friend saying YJ pretty much avoided all mentions of HS after the show (pretty much implying trauma). My personal opinion is that HW really could have done much better in this during the show. Whether or not he was aware of this, only he knows. Small update: GH and MJ went to JM's cafe.
  5. Forums were down for a while, so I couldn't access this. It seems that the aftershow events have not ended yet. The 4 girls were in photos for a group interview (really nice outfits, GH and MJ were linking arms in one picture, not sure why haha). Someone noted that with how awkward HS2 ended, the guys and girls still came together for a group interview, so having only girls is really weird. JM ig story was of her filming something with DG and her designer friend (likely not from a previous filming) I think reddit has a brief summary of the pd interviews in English (I can only find the same brief summary on Cnet). It seems to have been interpreted as JH and KY are currently still dating. I will share something from the other point of view on the matter from a Cnet (just for thoughts). I think the first part also concurs with the point that @Nodame makes about this type of romance variety shows. This was posted on 24/7 as a reference.
  6. I think viewers can choose what they want to view HS3 as. If you treat it as a drama, then ep16 will be the ending and you can pretty much forget about it and move on. If you like it a lot, you can always come back to rewatch it as a drama again. Viewers will not have to be concerned about the cast's lives afterwards since the story has ended. In this case, viewers can also move on from the stories on display here. It seems that the pd interviews for HS3 are out. From what I see on Cnet, IW and GH are drawing fire again for the spoiler pics and causing JH to get flamed during that period. I will wait for the full translation to see the context. When you thought the storm was over with the spoiler pics, it started up again after the interview.
  7. There were actually more stuff that happened that the OP did not include in his summary because those were more subtle so it could be a case of people reading too much about it. IW's accident seems to be only a minor collision from the back. I think he still went for dinner after that so everything should be fine. Update: Random ig interactions: KY shared a picture of a car then IW and MJ both wanted to be on a test drive on it. KY said that he will allow it since it's MJ. In the middle of all this, someone asked IW for a English name and IW said that he won't be thinking of names today since he's out of ideas. AN on IW's ig: Oppa looks the most handsome when you're working. Can't you work for your whole life? IW: Oh, it's really AN. I thought you were a high-grade imitation of AN, but you are AN herself. Hi, AN. IW: But if I become an old man, I will also want to retire T.T Update 2: The previous youtube channel I mentioned about the 3 guys doing analysis for HS3 uploaded a new video on HG-MJ from ep 16. A Cnet pointed out 3 interesting points after watching it: 1. HG mentioned in the interview that there was great emotional exhaustion during the one month stay at signal house. The 3 guys say that this is definitely not due to MJ. The first time is due to JH, the seoncd time is due to GH. The MJ-HG loveline was progressing too smoothly because MJ's heart was only on HG, so there wasn't any point of time causing HG emotional exahustion in this loveline. The guy on the left said that, just like how a movie's male and female lead got closer after overcoming a crisis, a relationship with totally no problems also has a reason why the "temperature" does not go up (I think this just refers to moving on to the next stage) 2. HG mentioned the part that left the deepest impression was the peanut ice-cream. There's actually a lot of events to mention here. It could be (MJ crying), tiramisu, motorcyle ride at Jeju. Mentioning the peanut ice-cream is very strange. The guy on the right says that it could be due to HG appreciating GH's courage to express herself so it left a deep impression, because he himself could not do it. 3. As for HG's regret about the unaired footage, the three guys' analysis is that the two parts (cocktail and reply letter) are the parts whereby his own charm was not displayed on screen, so he felt regretful. "The part where I was making the cocktail looked so good, why would they cut this part out?" (OP agreed a lot about this part). (OP post end) To be honest, it may be a pity during broadcast that there wasn't much HG-MJ scenes, did the pd cut their screentime because they're aware of what the current state of their relationship is. The less fuel you feed the HG-MJ ship, the milder the firestorm in the aftermath after the special. Currently, there isn't any further statements out from both sides. A Cnet pointed out that this is good that you keep it to a bare minimum. Both sides stated their stands so people won't blindly support one side but they also did not drag out the argument online to deal further hurt to each other. I'm not sure if the 3 guys will talk about the other 2 lovelines in the special. I will look out for Cnet summary if they do. There was a DC post reposted by this Cnet saying who will IW choose between HG and MJ (it's in bad taste). Honestly, I'm not sure IW is getting his peace of mind after the show with these fires starting up (HG-MJ, KY-JH) haha, especially when people know that he's close to someone in both lovelines.
  8. HS3 is going to turn out to be the messiest season because of the cast and not the netizens. MJ recently insta deleted a ig story saying that what you told me was obviously different. As for what that means is up to the reader's interpretation. Since IW, ED and maybe KY are close to MJ, this is definitely a difficult situation for them. To make it worse for IW, it seems IW had a minor car accident in the morning from his ig that was deleted. (He was asking for help on what is the usual procedure for this in Korea after being in US for so long. I guess it's also a kind of digital footprint in case the other party decides to twist facts and cause trouble since he's seen on tv.) A Cnet summarised the happenings for HG-MJ so far. It's a bit unpleasant to read. In a sense, ED is lucky that he did not go too deep in relationships with anyone on the show. It's a pity he did not get a good result, but he's pretty much uninvolved in all the firestorm.
  9. Hyunjoo and Jihyun gave me very similar first impressions, but the difference lies in what Prof Yang analysed in HS2 about Hyunjoo, Hyunjoo is open-minded and has that charm that allows people around her to open up to her. You really can see DG's playful side a lot around her. As for KY's ig comments asking from help from IW, the more rational Cnet analysts think that this is likely a sign that JH and KY chose to remain friends. Though KY and IW do hang out, I really think there's a lot to be seen from KY asking help for something related to JH from a ex-rival like IW. (What kind of fate is this that IW has with JH lol?) The reason for this intense ig war is likely due to the stark contrast in atmosphere between the special and the previous lovey-dovey scenes. It makes people question whether it was all for show. (I think it's still legit) The problem with IW-JH-GH relationship dynamics is that GH and JH are really very close but they really did not mention one word about IW during their house stay between themselves. I have a feeling the two of them still have not talked about it after the show. IW is in an awkward position for this and I think his hands are tied for any solution to this situation. Compare this to HJ-DG-JM, JM was really open about it even in the house, helping DG to land assists on the HJ front when she pretty much knew who DG's heart was leaning towards. The three of them sorted it out pretty well. DG-JM interactions on ig sometimes blur the line between friends and lovers, but people pretty much find the way it was presented to be interesting and that's it. HJ and JM still hang out too. I am not sure if you can attribute this to age difference (thus social experience, the 2 maknaes vs the oldest unnie, even HJ was older at the time of filming). HG came out with an apology for the fire at his side that has been started for a while. Ignoring what his true intentions were, he really should have considered the kind of effect that the photos and actions on ig will bring. MJ became an unwilling victim too. Update: MJ has unfollowed HG. -Haha, someone asked MJ to think of an English name for him/her. MJ said this is not her expertise, then dear Lucas joined in to think of one.
  10. Prof and Jaeho's 15-1 analysis Moving away from this translation, I actually really like to repaly HJ-DG scenes from HS2 a lot (not sure why haha). Comparing these 2 to IW-JH, HJ and DG definitely ended off with a better note (of course it may not really have ended, small wish haha). HJ-DG doesn't really have a heavy atmosphere and though these 2 did not really lay everything out, they have a subtle understanding of the other person's thoughts and it's less hurting that way combined with the constant laughs they had, so these 2 can still occassinally see each other in cast gatherings after the show. For IW-JH, JH really is too deep to read with the high wall she sets herself too. IW really tried too hard and too long to get a full answer (kind of like ED's advice to walk until there are no paths left). In the end, the hurt is much more and I don't think these 2 will ever see each other again. For IW-GH, though I am still holding on to the little hope of the progress in their relationship, my bigger desire is for these 2 to not totally become strangers. It would be such a pity. Edit: Since today's friday, ig is on fire from the cast. Someone asked IW to think of a name for their dog and IW asked for the gender. MJ happily commented on IW's ig that she's followed the 30 min rule and has arrived to comment (IW previously mentioned he will focused on replies for the first 30 min of the post) There's a huge war happening over at KY's ig over the current KY-JH relationship status (lol I was right that that special really didn't make it clear). KY is now seeking help from IW on ig lol.
  11. @NodameI can't seem to have the time to finish dramas so I gave up for a long time haha. Jaeho mentions in 15-1 that though the one month is short, the experience feels like a year has passed. I guess only the cast themselves will know what's the experience like. In my opinion, I think Jaeho helps keep the S2 cast close. For the S3 cast, I am not sure if there will be a person to do that like Jaeho. ED and MJ have relatively less unhappy happenings with the rest of the cast, so maybe these 2 angels will keep the cast close?
  12. I did a search online and it seems my sun sign is pisces, moon sign is gemini (lol two twin signs), ascendant is libra. I think you really need really good knowledge to combine all the star signs together for a good analysis. As for recent HS3 happenings, the girls gathered together to watch the special. IW shared a photo of his gathering with ED and HG and mentioned KY. From MJ's interview in the special, she also met IW lately (these two really feels like HS2's DG-YJ, best alliance, MJ praising and poking fun at IW when he was singing was adorable). JH and IW likely totally cut off contact (not a surprise to me). JH started a youtube channel. IW's teary face got made into an emote for his in office chatroom app by some colleague lol. To give a brief overview of Cnets' reaction to this special, it's the worst out of all HS endings, not taking into account KY-JH shippers. The pd likely brought up too much hype last week for this special to be such a downer haha. It's a historical scam, for all the shippers fighting till now, there is currently 0 couples etc. For the individual lovelines, HG-MJ: I kind of expected this ending since I only based my observations on the show itself and didn't read too much into online shipper analysis of the scenes. HG is really drawing a lot of fire from Knets and Cnets now over leaving subtle hints about the relationship happening after the final choice episode to turn out having an ending like that in the special. People think that the later episodes really became a promotional stint for him. Knet comment: the person who looked the most devoted was the most rational (HG), the person who looked the most rational was the most devoted (IW). KY-JH's parts are basically causing the DC forums to burst with essays analysing their current relationship status. Current trend seems to be leaning towards somewhere between friends and lovers. To be honest, I'm not sure about HS contract terms at this point because I don't think male-female cast are forbidden from meeting up? There are friends meeting up, so why not lovers? Won't that make it easier to guess who became a couple? I don't think they forbid lovers from meeting. To quote a Cnet, he finds it incredulous that you don't meet up because the program has not finished broadcast, it's likely that the two don't like each other enough so they did not get together. Others mentioned the special part of signal house like @endeavor and think that this is like a reset for the couple. As for me, I'll be sitting on the fence and waiting for ig reveals haha (but I really am not a KY fan so I feel conflicted on this). As for IW-GH (my ship haha), Cnet shippers are really pulling their hair out now because that whole interview was very vague. There was no mention of a word that accurately defines their relationship status now. I am still hanging on to the little hope that it will come true in the future (my tears hahaha). I blame the photos for the current state haiz. A Cnet was saying that he won't believe any spoilers for the next season unless it's a offical statement or a photo of them kissing. To quote a Knet: the HS team is really letting people deduce until the end. Just one sentence is all I need about whether the couple is still ongoing or whether they are dating. Why are you making this kind of open ending? This isn't even a drama..... The Chinese subs for Prof's 15-1 analysis are up. I'll try to translate it asap when I have the time. Feel free to come back to check for updates haha.
  13. @NodameHaha, the Cnets were talking about Mars, sun and moon in the horoscopes which I don't really understand. Supposedly, IW and GH are really compatible from their analysis. I think most of the casts' horoscopes are clear. Gemini: Euidong, Gaheun, Daeun, Dogyun Aries: Jangmi Virgo: Inwoo, Hangyeol Cancer: Minjae, Kangyeol Pisces: Youngjoo, Jihyun Libra: Hyunjoo Aquarius: Hyunwoo Leo: Jaeho Likely Taurus: Anna Likely Scorpio: Gyubin I'm not sure if you know the planets and sun well for the horoscopes so I didn't dig further. (I don't know them haha). Some stuff about the DG-HJ line. DG appeared close by to the place when HJ and DE were doing a charity bazaar. HJ mentioned in an interview that she didn't know she was the only person that DG smiled like that towards until watching the show. DG recited the poem again during the video with Jangmi and her designer friend. It was the episode with the Christmas gifts (Lol after close to 2 years?) The poem scene really is my top 1 across seasons (actually the DG-HJ dates all are). IW-GH are a close second haha (because they really showed too little of it. I felt like the HJ-DG footage were more somehow? Not sure why.)
  14. @Nodame You're welcome haha. I think HJ, DG and JH all went to JM's new shop/cafe recently based on ig. I don't think JM has broken up with her boyfriend yet according to Cnets. HJ seems to have started a vlog. I'll share some posts by a Cnet about the editing direction/storyline. OP supported IW-JH from the start but is quite unbiased in the posts that I'm sharing. He pretty much thought IW will choose GH at the end but got shocked by the twist lol, though he did predict IW choosing JH based on HS3's first love theme much earlier. First post is around the second last episode. Next 2 are after the final episode. For anyone interested in horoscopes, I've see some netizen comments that the reason why HS2 was so explosive was due to the amount of wind and fire horoscopes in the house. HS3 was more mild due to the earth horoscopes (but HS3 is really missing HS2's explosive truth or dare to spice things up lol). I dug really far back to see ig with the full HS2 cast minus HW together. I can't say I have that much hope for this season's haha.
  15. I think HS2's HW-HJ-DG storyline shares a lot of similarities with JH-IW-GH storyline, just that the personalities were switched around. The interesting part is that Hyunjoo's talk about what to do with the person you like and the person who likes you during her date with Dogyun and Dogyun's talk about the strong first impression vs finding someone comfortable that you will stay with for a long time during the last date with Hyunjoo, both applies to IW. It's unfortunate that IW's choice for these 2 questions didn't give him a happy ending. Compared to the netizen firestorm at the end of HS2, I think IW's actions and words play a huge part in the peace we see after the end of HS3. Towards the end of their stay, IW let (some would say force) JH and GH to lay out all their thoughts in the open and gave his honest replies to them. I think this really allowed them to let out their bottled up thoughts and feelings and be relieved from the pressure. From the audience's perspectives, this gives answers to any questions they have about the love triangle and pretty much removes the possibility of second-guessing the cast's intentions. HS2 was really missing something like this towards the end for the HW-HJ-YJ triangle. Rant after reading a recent reddit comment. I wanted to translate the Cnet post for the editing direction/storyline but this really ruined my mood. Sorry about this.
  16. I think the effect that the IW-GH leaks achieved was really to keep some of the viewers watching for the twist in the ending since IW looked so set on JH. Since the first few episodes were quite slow-paced, the leaks helped to keep the viewers' attention. As a result though, most netizens who knows the spoilers will view IW as GH's boyfriend and IW was pretty much flamed from start of the season till the end because of how he was going for JH and how GH was reacting to all of this. IW crying at the end of ep12 did help relieve some of it but it really didn't go away until the end. JH also got some of the flaming, but since there's so many KY-JH shippers on the net, it was not that impactful. As for IW-GH's current status, I'm on the fence about whether they decided to remain friends, are lovers or it's currently somewhere in between. There are Cnets who post that you should believe in their status as lovers with the evidence floating around (the spoiler pictures, flowers GH received on her birthday (message was just happy birthday and good luck for your tests), both wearing caps with the same logo (doesn't look like it's an expensive one), how GH's ig stories of food looks like IW's preferences). Some even went as far as pointing to some ig comment about GH's suppposed english name, but this is really too far-fetched and minimal so I won't touch on this. I really can't read both IW and GH's inner thoughts in the final episodes. My interpretation for GH is that the hurt was still lingering and her final choice was of the same nature as her final talk with IW. She's thanking him and I think her feelings for IW were stronger than HG's so that's why her choice remained as IW. She doesn't think that this ending (whereby it's not a mutual choice) means they should become strangers due to bad blood so she's saying let's still meet again. IW"s replies to her during the final talk and final choice were reaffirming to her that he isn't lying when he said he was attracted to her, so GH does not have to treat his actions/gifts as meaningless or fake (throw them away). This talk pretty much mirror's Dogyun-Hyunjoo's part in HS2. (This loveline is my "what-if" for HS2, it is a torture to watch when you see how Dogyun pretty much knows Hyunjoo's inner thoughts at every moment, her understander) For IW's part, I'm not sure how long he will take to sort out his feelings and how long his regrets regarding JH will linger, but I think he does share the same view as GH that they should not just become strangers because of this. A lot of Cnets who were harsh on IW for how he was treating JH deemed the final episode as the big revelation for why he was so devoted/obsessed about JH. IW's talk with JH this episode finally revealed IW's true intentions. There's a Cnet OP post on this that I'll try to translate in the future. Cnets pretty much let IW off after the final episode. (IW was pretty much dragged through the mud all the way till the end by the pd) Since the feelings involved were so intense, will it really dissipate that fast? Dogyun from S2 has remained single till now (no dating) as far as I know. (I don't think Dogyun and Hyunjoo interacted anymore after they filmed the special, though both are still close with Jangmi) Youngjoo also mentioned in the vlog with Dogyun last year that she doesn't watch the replays of the season. Could it be because of the same type of experience as IW? This is why I am waiting for the special to give a concrete reveal about IW-GH. Edit: Jaeho mentioned in the video with Prof Yang that he's looking foward to the special to know what happened to IW-GH after the program (pd hint perhaps?) There's no translation for 15-1 and 15-2 so far though. Edit: By the way, the youtube channel has a complilation of scenes for the different lovelines. IW-JH title: Love is timing IW-GH title: To the person who does not love me. Yeap, they are really going with this suspense game. HG-MJ's editing direction seems to follow that of Jaeho-Daeun from S2. The loveline is pretty much set quite early, so you really don't have much to show. The outlier was the chemistry between HG and GH. So, the result was that the pd is able to leave a lingering question about GH and HG"s choices when he shows HG-GH scenes (GH's messages were also sent to HG) and MJ also gets more screentime when she is aware of this chemistry and has doubts about her efforts being still worth it. Jaeho's high level of relationship management in S2 pretty much resolves doubts fast and leaves no room for the pd to create any suspense there, so the loveline was pretty much set all along. I think currently HG-MJ and KY-JH are still stable now from what Cnets are digging up. On a side note, IW"s ig has become a English naming site now. MJ is Rosie and ED is Dylan lol.
  17. @NodameThis season is really good. I am watching S2 now here and there and had this "what if" thought to put s3's male cast together with s2's female cast. It feels like the interaction would be really interesting since s2's girls are really outgoing. I am putting one of the translated top comments under the IW-JH date video for ep 15 here. It's food for thought as we look at IW's actions this season. I really have not seen someone like him in my life so far. Comment: I feel that, in this seaon of Heart Signal, the point about IW that left a deep impression is that it is very difficult for people to be so frank at every single moment in real life, because people will be conscious about other people's expressions and thoughts and their own image. However, even in a filmed program, IW was the most honest with his own feelings, and thoroughly displayed that to others at the same time. There are no moments when you feel that he is lying or fake. You can feel that he really is just being what he truly is, a really truthful person, and also his pride and dignity of the person he is. The reason for why he can do this is that IW thinks that his own feelings and thoughts are the most precious compared to the image that others have of him. Although some people will think that this frankness, directness, saying what you shouldn't say, is not good, but I really admire this frankness. This shows that he has a resilient ego that allows him to fully express this frankness and it is very charming. Another comment from Cnet for the OP who translated the Korean comments: This is a point which I admire IW about. When someone grows up, he will always be educated to know his boundaries and be more smooth in talking. There's nothing wrong with this, but there will also be many moments when you faked politically correct answers or say things that go against your true thoughts. IW's directness from start to finish breaks away from this trend. When the atmosphere in society leans towards ambience, it is really precious to see someone come out to say his true thoughts. Although this precious quality would sometimes be hurting, it is at least simple, with nothing in there to be doubted.
  18. IW-JH will forever be my regretful "what if" loveline, while IW-GH will be my "please happen" loveline (I'm just waiting for the special to hopefully tell us about the actual status of IW-GH, or any ig reveal after that is also fine. GH is practically teasing CP fans with that ig profile pic) Really heartwarming and cute ig interaction for ED-MJ-IW ED: Oppa, if you reply me, I'll drink and dance MJ: Oppa, you are just using this as an excuse for a chance to dance, right? Just eat your meat. IW: That's right, What MJ said is right. If you really wanted to dance, you should be singing in the last episode. Why are you asking me to sing then? Edit: IW wants ED to dance to Rain's Gang so that he can put it on ig lol.
  19. The main storyline is pretty much over. What I want now is more IW-JH and IW-GH moments for the special. (Look at GH's instagram profile now. I really don't know what's the IW-GH status now with all these teasing spoiler pictures and last minute turnover in the episode itself lol) I've seen comments on reddit complaining about the editing direction for the show (JH-centric, slow etc.) but didn't really see people analysing the reason behind it. I have seen some posts by Cnets that actually go into this analysis and it's a really good read. Some even talk about the specific bgm played during the scenes, example: the lyrics of lover during IW-JH scenes that pretty much describe their states. I think the Netflix version(?) switches the bgms so you would need to find the original Korean version for the correct bgms. I'll share some posts here and if anyone here wants to rewatch the season sometime in the future(I think we have less than 5 users here haha). Using this viewpoint may give you a whole new perspective into the cast's feelings. As I have seen someone mentioned for HS2, YJ's viewpoint and HW's viewpoint really will make you understand the ending differently. (I've only seen snippets of HS2 but the female cast for that season really stood out) First post was likely posted by the OP around ep 12 (when IW cried) I'll add more here when I have the time to translate more haha.
  20. Prof Yang's 14-1 analysis, guest: Soyoung from season 1's panel (I think she has a psychology degree too) Since this analysis is part of the offical channel's videos, the analysis tends to be milder and more civil, but you can still use the analysis to see who is the key person that affects the relationships. Ep14 was really frustrating to watch for me because it continues the stalemate from ep 13. I'm not sure HG-MJ will be able to take a step further. On the other hand, I'm glad to see ED-AN reached closure. These two are able to share their thoughts without holding back and understand the other side's position. I think ED really has no regrets like he said. How I wish these 2 can talk some sense into the key parties for the other relationships to really make a clear cut decision. 4 more days before the final resolution(or lack thereof). Edit:@NodameYeah, I think the reason why the occupations felt more special this season was particularly due to pd looking for people who didn't need the fame (or will get accused of it). IW's job pays well and MJ is definitely doing her job due to her passion. I think ED's job isn't really affected by media attention, though if he gets more personal commissions, it's good for him since I don't think the demand for personal models are that high. AN as a secretary also doesn't really need the fame. I can't speak for the current students but the rest may really need the advertisement lol.
  21. To elaborate my views based on the points mentioned in @endeavor's post I agree on the part about the photos. Especially when you take into account that IW still hasn't resolved the ties with JH so late in the show, people do not like that GH became a second best choice when IW gets rejected. To be honest, the photos do not really suggest anything that IW and GH are lovers not friends, and words can be made up. My preferred response from IW would be for him to give a considerate answer to GH instead of saying let's start a relationship now, though I won't know what will happen for the last episode. Knowing that you are the second best choice when watching the show isn't a good feeling. A comment mentioned that GH must really have a strong heart dating after watching all this. Whatever happens though, I will respect their choices. I lament that IW-GH scenes are too few to come by in this show. They really look compatible on screen. I also don't think IW is detail-oriented but I think his conduct in front of the other girls is quite considerate. I still remember the part during IW-AN date whereby AN mentioned that the girls said that you will always open the door for them first so she wanted to experience it (lol like a tourist attraction). Same consideration showed during that long drive with GH at ep 11 whereby he asked if she would be able to get in and drove the car out for her convenience. Unless it is something that was programmed into him like some training, his good intentions behind his actions does show in small parts. For female-male interactions after the show so far on the net, if you take away the IW-GH photos, theres a JH-HG-ED photo of them visiting HG"s shop (likely his shop) and then there's MJ leaving a comment on IW's instagram and IW responding. Given how MJ is potrayed as perceptive and straightforward on the show, if IW was really that bad, I don't think she will still do this after the show. (small detail of her helping to steady the small saucer when IW was pouring the drink at night, really caring of her) Emotional intelligence is really a glaring weakness of IW but then I also wonder if this is something that you are able to get better on quickly since it is something intangible. I think that everyone has different starting points for different aspects in life. It may take years for someone to catch up to others' level in a certain aspect. I am really not sure if it is more realistic to expect IW to ask JH for closure nicely or for JH to pick up courage to give IW a straight "let's stop now". I didn't include the "no feelings for you" part for JH because both observers and herself know that it's still there. We are reaching the finale soon and to report on some news of the cast. Knets are really ruthless in digging up your history and background. So far, out of the cast, only IW, ED, MJ, JH have really nothing bad coming out. I think GH and HG are suing. KY's is pretty much there and he posted an apology letter (though I don't know why he made that instagram post private and incurred the wrath of Knets again). As for AN's, there's really no waves so far. ED is really popular among the male viewers (lol). JH comes from a rich family background. Any reveal about MJ is basically about her being a goddess/angel (lol). I think Knets went especially hard on IW (likely due to his high profile job), digging all the way back to his high school but it is totally clean so far. I have seen comments from people working in IT companies that IW's qualifications are pretty much close to the roof for what you can find in the field (and apparently Facebook's standards are really high). Moreover, he was poached to his current company. Edit: I forgot to add that someone quipped that if IW had such a likable and popular personality, you wouldn't even see the guy on a dating show lol. IW's and ED's instagram replies sometimes get posted online for amusement. ED's replies are really funny and IW"s replies are pretty much like IW himself lol.
