  1. And this is excluding the times the double heart emoji shows up like South of France photo, Bangkok photo, LA by the tree photo (I know it is delulu talking, but we can dream, too can't we, fellow shippers). To me tho most telling are her posts on Sept 22 selfie where a heart filter is added and of course the Christmas post. My fellow shippers, I share your euphoria from her IG post. And, yes @Serivealshe literally is serving us a cake, one with a picture of them! My heart is ready to explode as I can feel she is relaying a deeper message. Hoping and praying and patiently waiting for the announcement we long to hear!
  2. @Kari thank you for this perspective. I watched The Negotiation with the eyes of a BinJin fan, not as one who is an admirer of the genre and not even as an admirer of their work as I must admit I have not seen too many. I watched it to see them both and their chemistry, to see where it all began. Because I don't really care about spoilers , prior to watching , I checked out reviews and I was disheartened that the movie did not garner stellar ones. Rotten Tomatoes, rated it 60% while IMdB rates it 6.6/10. The LA Times critic was even less forgiving. He panned the movie citing it sluggish and that the actors had a "decided lack of chemistry"! (LA Times, Sept. 20, 2018). Of course these reviews did not deter me from watching the movie. And unlike the critic I could see nothing but great chemistry emanating from them. I even felt sad that the HB character died even if he did kill all those people and was a bad guy to begin with. I will admit I am a bigger fan of their coupling IRL rather than of their individual works. Maybe that is why I thought The Negotiation was a wonderful movie. Same reason I would never get tired of watching CLoY and watching all the BTS and FMVs related to them. I know I should work at being a better fan of their individual works as well. As a BinJin shipper, I want to thank you @lovelyzfor summing it all up- the reason why no matter how much doubt (or drought) is cast internally and more so externally, there is hard core evidence to back up why what we witness is just not a figment of our imagination, not for show, that BinJin is for real. I like that you also mention about adjusting our expectations but at the same time keeping that positive vibes and focus. As @Peonyaptly states it, we are blessed as a fandom to have HB and SYJ as co-captains of this ship! Patiently waiting, praying and hoping....
  3. @lovelyzI have to say your post is the post of the week! In a drought filled day like today, it was an oasis. A constant reminder of why the BinJin nation is indeed very lucky to have them as the OTP . They make shipping so easy. I have earmarked this post so when I feel down (not just as a shipper but in days I feel blue,) I know I can read this post and feel happy again! Still grinning about the 10 year old expired milk reference.
  4. @cat2020I share your thoughts, esp amidst the anticipation of something big happening that "one day in June", I did notice those posts. And you just reminded me or of, esp since it seems to ber re-posted in one of the IG posts. @All smiles, nice thought on how our OTP can expend their Kent involvement such as mentoring, producing, etc. I believe they do most of that but not in a regular capacity as they are mostly actors but it would be nice to see SYJ direct or HB be a full on producer/ director as well. Of course, I would love to see them most especially building their family. From all the signs we see everyday, it seems that an announcement is inevitable. Whether it be an engagement, a wedding that is to be or a marriage that already is, there most likely will be one. (Delulu thoughts included, plus how many more white dresses will she be wearing?) Once that happens, I keep asking myself what next (once I get over the joy and excitement from the news). I for sure will get my needed sleep, or will I? Most of us have read @RiRiGaGa's BinJintion/Soompidia post. We laughed when we read it because we know it is an ailment we suffer from as well. Will we no longer ship because the ship has docked? As @HappyForLovecited this is her "happy place" as we all can relate. We have found life long friends, 100 percent of whom I have not met in person. Will I continue to suffer from FOMO once they have made an announcement? And most of all will SYJ and HB be accorded the privacy they rightfully deserve? Except for the Bargaining movie, there is nothing yet announced of HB's future projects and for SYJ, nothing concrete about Cross- Hollywood is at a standstill right now if they want to get things running by March, there should already be news about funding at least). Which means if an announcement is made, they will choose to keep an ever lower profile. This is a nagging question for me as a first time shipper. What comes after a successful pairing is revealed and a ship successfully docks? Our OTP they are just so perfect individually and and as a couple, one cannot seem to get enough and yet I have to remember that they are private people first and foremost. Please help me as I need to know what to do when the time comes.
  5. @Cherie Ceeso happy to be in the same ship with you, sister, as well as all other like minded, positive individuals in this BinJin nation. They really don't owe us anything, even an announcement, although I highly doubt that because they know how much support and love they are getting, especially internationally. If there is anything shipping has taught many of us, especially first timers is the virtue of patience. As many have cited, we should not force our timeline on them. They have gifted with so much receipts and proofs that indicate that they are indeed together. As to whether we will still be here despite the lack of an announcement this year, that is on the individual. But a true believer will not abandon ship, BinJin is for real and when the time is right for them to officially tell the world, we will be rewarded.
  6. @lovebirdsi also read somewhere that HB gifted crew with North Face jackets and SYJ gifted crew with Man-Yo items. This is not confirmed though and I am no sure for what projects. I would not be surprised as they both seem to be very generous not only with material things as a sign of gratitude but also with their time and their talent. Another testament to how similar they are in their ways!
  7. What a wonderful insight @grazieaThe fact that you are calling them Mom and Dad, I am assuming you are younger than them. I am reading it and I felt as if I might as well have written it and I am old enough to be our OTP's mom! Shipping them knows no age boundaries as we see what we see and feel what we feel. Just like you, I feel giddy and excited. I am a late bloomer to CLoy and to BinJin and have been in this ship three months now but what an awesome feeling it has been! This is the first time I have ever done anything like this for anyone or anything in my almost 60 years of existence! Never would I expect t be spending sleepless nights over a couple whose language I don't even speak! And yet just like everyone else I am "peacefully waiting and going hysterical when we are shown the crumbs" The BinJin community has been a wonderful safe haven for all of us. Our OTP has been our happy pill, whether we are a Boomer or a Zoomer or anyone in between. Shipping has impacted our lives whether we admit it or not. Personally, I have met wonderful like minded people, albeit not face to face to face., who will be my friends for life. I have also enrolled in Korean classes so I can better understand what I read and what I see and not have to rely on Google translate nor @celest1alall the time (she is God-sent in this forum, I am a fan and she knows it). But most all- SYJ and HB! They, to me are the embodiment of PERFECTION . The fact that destiny and fate brought them together, that my most beloved CLoY is their love story to tell, and seeing how their love story has unfolded (despite any admittance) just truly melts my heart. This ship has afforded all of us a front seat to this great love story between two of the best who could possibly be together! With what is happening in the world, they truly and an inspiration, a source of happiness! Truly am grateful for them and this ship!
  8. What a heartwarming piece, @Intuition1! Ialways wondered about her IG post dated 5 August 2017. This was when they wrapped filming for TN. The Google translation is " I'm sorry for the blunt actor who cannot express". Blunt was a description always given to HB. I did ask @celest1alabout the translation and she thinks SYJ might have been referring to herself. I would like to think they kept in touch as colleagues and that they moved around a very tight circle of friends their paths would cross. While busy with their respective projects, they must have had time to check on how each other was doing. Fate and destiny really played a hand as they had to do a re-shoot. This is clearly a relationship that was slow and steady. I feel that HB pursued her, working his way through her heart by proving he was worth it. I always thought the Ferragamo bag was a coincidence, but I really feel it was thought of. A bag is not a romantic gift but he probably knew she likes hand bags so when he went to Milan for the Ferragamo Spring Summer show, he must have seen the bag as it was featured in the show and decided to get that for her to send the message that he thought of her. She responds by using the bag at the Rampant premiere (SYJ is more into Hermes and Chanel and yet she used his gift for this special occasion). When April re-shoot came to be, their friendship had already blossomed, leading to that mutual understanding , plans were made to meet in Europe as their schedules seem to jibe. And he brings his camera, the one he says was the most romantic thing he has done.
  9. @TotoroSY This is awesome especially in light of the rift going on between the two countries IRL. I remember what @celest1al had posted about this and the impact this has not only with our OTP but the whole KEnt in general. I know the ban on Hallyu was lifted and knowing that the reception Japanese audiences gave to the drama and to HB and SYJ is great news. I am neither Japanese nor Korean but I do know the rift is pretty deep but in everyday lives of people (including their entertainment prefernces), there is no divide. A good story and good acting and actors will transcend any differences.
  10. This post is totally off topic, but this is totally all about BinJin. I would like to pay homage to one of the best FMVs on YT about BinJin ever made. This is by bpwinces! (101 reasons to ship BinJin). I just found out that she has taken her whole channel down as she has moved on. She has not left her followers to hung out and dry, she has an explanation as to why. I cried buckets as I was reading her farewell message. This particular video was my go-to in my early days as a BinJin fan. Much as I relied on Soompi for my daily BinJin fix, I also watched this video when i woke up and before I went to bed. For those who have not seen (highly doubt as that was a BinJin 101 video), it was mostly a re-hash of BTS, interviews, etc as to why she thought BinJin is a good ship to be in. Trivia: the creator was on here in the early days of this thread). Her content, editing as well as the use of a very haunting piece as background truly truly touched me to the core. You can tell a lot of love and passion, coupled with her talent went to the making of the video. I am so deep now into my love for my OTP, I think this is for life. Knowing that one of the reasons my belief had that strong foundation is now forever gone from YT seems really bittersweet. I know it is archived somewhere but the creator has asked for it not to be shared and we have to respect that. She had other FMVs in there as well of other dramas, but I do know she is one of us. Good luck to you, bpwinces! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for that sincere and heartfelt expression of your love for BinJin. It has built my very own foundation and belief as well. There are other very well made FMV and I do recommend the one by itsmelahlah- (Bashert),. Itsmelahlah is also an "alumna" of Soompi. She used to be on this thread as well.
  11. @lovelyzyouhave been one of the early supporters of this ship and I thank you as much as I thank @cybertron for starting this thread when there was barely anything to support your desire for them to be together. Now that you are retiring your responsibility and handing it off to @ElectricHeartsI know you are proud of what you have started and while there were many challenges along the way, the BinJin nation has held steadfast in the belief that this is indeed a very very strong solid ship. I feel that the ship will dock before we reach the allocated 2k pages. The timeline provide for us is really there to anchor the ship when it docks as these are FACTS. Not delulu, which we are still allowed to have. Most of these are all supported mainly by the two biggest receipts we have- our OTP themselves! If I may add some of the other receipts we can add to the cart: 1) Christmas Greeting. Even if her message says "filming today" .. the picture says it all. Christmas is a couples holiday in Korea and this is even referenced in CLOY. It is a photo taken in August with his fingers peeking over her shoulders. I doubt Vast would have sent her message to remove her post 2) Couples matching outfits. Again a Korean tradition. Several sightings of them with matching outfits. 3) Matching tan complexion, including golf tan lines 4) Her scarcity of being on IG. And when she is suspected to be with him there is that double heart emoji There are many more receipts but these are the ones that come to mind. I am not sure if I know what you may be referring to as a close acquaintance of HB but I think I have an inkling but am not hundred percent certain. I have mentioned this in my posts how grateful I am for this community. We not only support the best human beings we can take inspiration from, we also have each other, Revelation time is fast approaching. For those with weak Hearts, better be ready! And yes where is that funny member with a cat? Come out of lurking @Felizak@tor are you really in Jordan fulfilling a mission?
  12. @Last Delulu Standinglaziness, opportunistic people at their finest! and they get the views and get paid for it! I even clicked and then I realized how I was conned. I reache dout to our Soompi sisters who were impacted and there is nothing much they can do as Soompi owns the content. Apparently there are some influential BinJin accounts that do the same (grab content that is not theirs and claim as their own and even watermark it. Tssk. BinJIn is huge and does command clicks. I do wish people had more scruples. But I guess as in life, there will always be a justification. One thing is certain though, KARMA- is a B**CH! Do good in the name of BinJin.
  13. This is the message that Vast was referring to from the Space. I hope poster does not get in trouble with Vast. Apparently she was on a roll sending out the link to everyone.
  14. I mean, obviously they cannot film in Afghanistan even if there was no pandemic. Jordan is a go-too destination for movie location settings. Several Hollywood movies were filmed there including Star Wars, Transformers, Aladdin and anything with a Mars setting. Originally I thought the setting was Lebanon until I read about it being based on the rescue of SK missionaries in Afghanistan. @jamy47 I agree with you a hundred percent as Jordan being the excellent choice, even if there was no pandemic. Wadi Rum where I understand the desert scenes will be filmed is a no-brainer choice (the teaser ads are of Wadi Rum). Jordan Film commission is world-class and have they experience. It is just unfortunate because that their filming is being done in the heat of summer as they are still bound by a contract to finish filming. Based on what we hear about what is going on (which is almost nothing), Jordan filming is indeed a great choice, meaning filming is going smoothly (hopefully). Jordan is also the most liberal among Middle East countries, and has one of the lowest CoVid incidents in the world, They have since opened their doors to touris, although highly doubtful who would like to travel at a time like these? The smoother, the filming goes, the better for everyone, HB gets back to SK and we hopefully the world will get the announcement we most desire to hear. With regards the Soompi announcement, if they do decide to close down the site for good, I would to this site for being my safe haven during the time of pandemic. I found pure joy in admiring and seeing how beautiful the BinJin lovestory us, but it was through this forum that that admiration really flourished. I found this community of wonderful people who shared my obsession. True you can get that fix from other platform but this community is special. Whether the ship will dock and we are celebrating here or on other sites, thank you all for this heartwarming experience!
  15. I don't have Twitter but someone in one of my GC sent a screen shot of SYJ with her Chanel bag and another screen shot with HB on it and they were both dated May 19. It was a meeting with Smart executives. Looks like there was a Zoom meeting around that time cause they are thanking her.
  16. @ednamode101The Queen she knows her bags! Black and white version Chanel Gabrielle Backpack.
  17. From my understanding there are three campaigns and the contract is for one year and this includes a fan meet (don't know how this will work out with the current situation, but I am sure they will find a way to fulfill this). From the get-go it was always teased by MVP that it will be both of them. Capt.Ri cannot be lonely, or words to that effect. MVP is the top of the top honcho at PLDT (parent company of SMART) and he would not personally let out a statement like that and let it be half baked. Story line will probably have allusions to CLOY and a story line that will suit the products being pushed. I have seen the Miss Universe Catriona Grey commercials for SMART card in their last campaign and I was really impressed with how it was done. I would imagine having SYJ, it will not be anything less. Interestingly the scene ends in a kiss. I don't know if the commercial I saw was a three part series or one whole commercial (I know how Pinoys love to tell their stories in series). Please advise. Nevertheless, it ends with a kiss and a twist to the story. Just thinking about HB and SYJ possibly being together, whether in the second campaign or a third one is enough to give me the chills. So much skepticism as to whether SYJ will accept this project or not. But here we are (or should I say, a little less than 24 hours to go). There is a 15 hour difference between Philippine time and PST, which means for me, it will be reliving Baeksang all over again, time and sleep wise. But for the love of BinJin, this ahjumma's got to do what she's gotta do.PS Can anyone advise how we can participate in making SYJ's CF trend? I have no Twitter account but I have YT as well as IG. Will do my share to achieve what it needs to achieve and show my support.
  18. @cheesenbyou probably are a more informed fan than me as I only became a BinJin fan post CLOY (and an even newer shipper) so I don't know much about their TN days except from what I read here and in other platforms. I am curious though what you think about the HB HK interview done in May 2019 where he refers to bringing a "camera to Europe after filming" as the most romantic thing he has done. This seems to coincide with the Alhambra timeline. Coincidentally, SYJ also has postings right around this time of being in the South of France (2 hours away from Barcelona where MOTA filming was). These all occurred on end of June 2018, way before the TN promotions which began in August 2018. There have been discussions about this in past posts, so I am just really curious.
  19. @SHpectator @cris_felizSMART CEO may not be the biggest shipper but he might as well be the richest. Thank you, SMART for moving hell and high water to have them in their third project together. I am so excited for August 3, 5pm. I am on the other side of the globe (oops, sorry, the world), but will be keeping close watch as it happens. I am very proud of my countrymen! Despite the challenges going on in my home country, we continue to be a resilient people and so happy that BinJin is there for many of them. While I am citizen of the BinJin nation, I am Filipino in real life . So to quote Binnie-"MAHAL KO KAYO" Quick PS @RiRiGaGacan you please run for president?
  20. Unnie @Cherie Ceeyou earned your sleep with your post! Although i have heard about this (and know for a FACT they are a couple, it is still very heart fluttering and kilig! I really have to strengthen my dear heart for when the real announcement is made. If little trivial things like this makes me weak in the knees- I can just imagine what happens when. Lord help us all!!!!
  21. @BeadharmonyI think she is wearing the women's version. She is much too petite to be wearing his coat, she will be dragging it as HB is 6' and she is 5'5" (not to mention he has very broad shoulders) If I may add to outfits, the Balmain double breasted dress she wore to the Negotiation press conference is very similar to the double breasted coat he wore to the Rampant premiere. Also the twinning ensembles they wore to the CLOY wrap party. Perhaps this is their way of non verbally telling the world they are a couple, albeit in a subtle way?
  22. @ChewyNow you got me all intrigued! According to Wikipedia "thinking outside he box" is a metaphor to think differently, unconventionally or from a different perspective. Is it Palm Springs? or as @Jimmy Greenesuggested somewhere more South, like Torrey Pines? SYJ has been to San Diego as well based on her IG postings. Regardless, the theory about The Resort at Pelican Hill seems to hold water and the clip that @Elle Rhas shown why this could be possible. I have not been to any Pavilions in the OC but the pictures @cloyfanhad taken were enough to convince me how SPOT ON it was! When we do our LA meet, a visit to this grocery store is a must!
  23. @TotoroSYwe may never know which grocery store they went , but strong evidence seem to point that it was Pavilion's (definitely not Ralph's). When I first heard about it my inkling was the Pavilion's in Hancock Park as this is the closest to Koreatown (there is members-only golf course The Wilshire Country Club, where there are many Korean members), but the more I read on the posts here, the mm ore convinced I was that it was the Pavilions in Newport Beach close to the Resort at Pelican Hill. With due respect to @Chewy who begged to disagree that the golfing rendezvous did not happen there. There is evidence to support the strong possibility that they may have stayed at the Resort at Pelican Hill, not only for its exclusivity and privacy (and needless to say a world class golf course with a view) but also because SYJ herself has stayed there. And there is a Pavilions's 5 minutes away. So we may not have the solid proof you have to say this is not the place they played golf at, it still would make perfect sense. Furthermore, The Resort is in Newport Beach, and nearby is an area where there are many affluent Chinese and Taiwanese residents. @Jimmy Greene I am not a golfer like you but I am a long time resident of LA and I am sure you will agree that LA and SoCal is a wonderful haven for golfers . If the timeline is correct (please confirm @ElectricHeartsthey stayed here for at least 10 days, plenty of time to check out different golf courses and meet up with friends (like the reported meeting with HB's Marine Senior). I also believe that they both attended the birthday party of SYJ's friend's daughter in Koreatown where the picture by the tree (as referred to by @Walk Kindly)was taken not by a smart phone but by a camera, similar to the one used in Europe. Meanwhile, HB is filming in the hot hot Jordan weather (it would have been so much easier to have filmed in March as originally planned). All is quiet in SYJ's camp... for us the drought is real, as dry as the Wadi Rum Desert. I hope it rains candies soon to feed our hungry hearts.
  24. @Teenersyou probably are right as far as finding hard evidence, but what about circumstantial? Like the IG posts of SYJ at the end of June and early July (her team had already gone back to SK by then) and more importantly the very telling HK interview HB had where he talked about bringing a romantic camera to Europe after filming? Between our resident sleuths @Walk Kindlyand @ElectricHeartsthey have unearthed some interesting "coincidences". Make syou go hmmmmm. @ElectricHeartsregarding fashion: HB wore a Balmain suit at the Rampant premiere, SYJ wore a Balmain suit on the August 9 TN press tour. Note the similarity in style of the outfits. I wonder if their stylists already were working closely back then. With regards, golfing locations. Good call on Terranea as that is also one of the most beautiful courses, overlooking the ocean. (FYI There are 26 Pavilions in all of LA county and there is one close to it) However, The rationale behind THe Resort at the Pelican Hill theory is because it is documented that SYJ has been there- based on her IG post dated Feb 4, 2018. There is also a Pavilion's 5 minutes away and that is the location @cloyfantook pictures of. This is where many of us believe is the site of #InGroceryWeTrust. We may never have proof, never have the confirmation, but somehow connecting the dots feels like we have cracked the code. I think this is what makes shipping all the more fun! We are allowed to combine our sensibilities with our delulu. We could be right, we never know!
