  1. YT is stuck at 289,934 views. I've seen it go up, and then it comes back down again. Nice CF, and I can see Ye-Jin has been working on her English.
  2. I first heard of SYJ this year while watching CLOY, and have since watched all 21 of her movies. She is a voice actor in two of the films. Crazy First Love seems weird to me, and I would put it as one of my least favorite SYJ films. It is difficult to figure out the overall story and character logic, which is why I watched it twice. Even the romance part of the film seems one-sided and unnatural. Regarding misogyny, this film probably requires knowing Korean cultural values. The main thing though is that this story is told from the boy's viewpoint of his first and only love. SYJ's character Il-mae only appears in scenes related to the boy's story. Even in one scene where she is alone with her father, it is to explain to her father how she feels about the boy. SYJ is more of a supporting character for the story than a main character, although she is, of course, the "first love." I watched this movie mainly because I was determined to watch and understand every SYJ movie. Otherwise, I can't recommend this movie. I like the play on "Seri's Choice." I use Smart when in the Philippines and retain my number, but don't have a Signature plan. I wonder what they'll say or do on August 3?
  3. I assume "Crazy Romance" is the same as "Crazy First Love." The movie is a little hard to understand. It starts as a comedy fantasy but is like a romance tragedy at the end. Probably helps to know Korean language and culture, and I don't. I've seen it twice and I'll give you my understanding of the ending.
  4. Glad the forum is online again. Sometimes forum crashes cause a lot of loss. I watched Lover's Concerto again.
  5. Totally agree with "discovering a great actress." She makes characters believable and scenes come alive. At least that discovery is a positive for 2020. Although my interest is in her professional work, it seems from the comments of others that she is a kind-hearted person in real life.
  6. The tension+ between SYJ and and KNG was strong to the last episode. SYJ said that she would follow him to hell if she could meet the real Yi Soo again, and she did. I felt that the ending was the only way it could be due to Yi Soo's feeling for sharks at the very beginning and that they could not stop swimming, plus his other statements on the video that SYJ made of him in high school. I also liked the dark mystery as the truth was gradually revealed. Then there was the tension of how to reveal the truth without destroying the lives of loved ones such as Yi Soo's little sister. I also liked the danger from criminals and the secondary love interests. SYJ (HaeWoo) never stopped loving her husband, but her insatiable quest for truth forced her to walk down that dangerous path with Yi Soo.
  7. Thanks for this thread on SYJ. I've lurked for a few weeks, but decided to sign up. I had never heard of SYJ until this year 2020, although I had been aware of a few of the Kpop groups for the past ten years. Crash Landing on You kept popping up on Netflix. I really don't like drama because I lose interest somewhere in the middle. Because of the intense lock down where I live, one fateful day I clicked on CLOY, primarily because the interaction between North and South Korea has always interested me. The story was fascinating and I watched an episode every day until the end. My respect for SYJ's acting grew tremendously. She is the reason I was able to make it through. How can anyone express so many emotions so easily through eye and facial expressions? I went on an SYJ binge and have now watched all 21 movies and 9 dramas (including the cameo in Secret Garden). Besides CLOY I liked The Classic, A Moment to Remember, Shark and Be With You. The copy of Daemang I watched was poor quality with some of the 60 episodes missing. So, I have one left: Sun-hee & Jin-hee. Anyone know where I might find that with eng subs?
