  1. She blushed and broke the eye contact because he stared her at her during few long seconds. It's the second time he does that (first one was during the filming in the park where they were both in white). I don't know if he's just teasing her but it seems to me, it took her off guard because she wasn't expecting him to be so intense during the BTS. Based on the interviews he gave, it seems he's been acting in character all the time: during the rehearsals and BTS, shooting of promo material, calling SHS by her character's name etc... I read that he isn't the cheerful type, and was somehow very surprised by how bright he could act and by the fact he enjoyed it very much. So "he's Dan" all the time, even in the way his character keeps touching Yeonseo. Also, they talk in informal language, so he probaly feel comfortable to act more friendly publicly. Yes, that's the spirit! All i can see for this film is that she's playing with Lee Je Hoon! But more seriously, i really wish she will be more than the usual girlfriend who make the cold lead more human/tragic or even worst just sexy.
  2. Don't worry i have very low expectations! It's just that as for a rom com, the main couple must work very well to keep my attention and interest. If she looks more mature than him, i will have a hard time to ship them. Since it's the case in real life, i just hope the writing and the wardrobe will erase the difference. A cute pic that is new to me:
  3. Thanks everyone for the updates! Good point: I'm feeling less the age/maturity gap between them in those last clips. Hopefully, the writing will help to build this missing connection. A funny gif from the BTS poster filming: Credit:: thel313
  4. Your gifs are gifts: you're both killing it! It brings me back to the time she was shooting the poster with the SF cast. What a progress since then! The BTS of the shooting seemed at the time telling about how comfortable she feels with her body: I think she was and is very comfortable, but certainly less than BDN and CSW who asked for music and started to do few exercices to relax. She was trying hard to stay in character and couldn't follow the example of her co-stars. BDN and CSW got to train a lot for their previous roles (fighting scenes for BDN and musicals for CSW ) and had a physical flexibility that they totally integrated to their acting. I think this role might her help her to reach closer to this level of maturity in her acting, to learn to not rely only on her expressions. Honestly, it make me crave even more the idea that she can do a action film or spy drama. I'm watching Different Dreams on MBC and though the heroine played by the superb Lee Yo Woon have less to do than the male lead (the charismatic and very talented Yoo Ji Tae): she still got to hold a gun and ride a horse and fight for her life. Damn, i'm getting lead away by my fantasies: i can't stop but imagining her playing with Joo Ji Tae! "shudders"
  5. I would have never thought of this intepretation by myself! So bold of you to beat us all! While we were all patient like angels waiting for the tiniest sign that they don't hate each other, you just went directly for the most mature signs of physical intimacy! . You are in real impatience to get there! But how can blame you? Surely not me, I won't complain if it becomes suddenly very hot in this drama and this thread (i remember a certain passionate kiss and night in Violent Prosecutor that deserves imo a repeat/replay because the first time was way too short. I'm totally ok for KMS to replace KDW in this fantasy Thanks @meechuttso for your translation and explanations! My head hearts: i strictly don't understand a thing to what's on going on those trailers. Are they trying to keep the mystery? Or is the plot too complex and confusing? Same as you, bad memories form MGL time came back flooding, especially during the scene where it seemed that he tried to force a kiss on her and she turned her head hastily and in panic mode. It was obvious that the writer was going to take the crazy obsessive road for his character based on the teaser but i'm surprised it's happening so quickly. The trailer cover only next weeks episode and he's already "in love" with her and she's already rejecting him. Does this mean it won't last more than few episodes? A dramatic start transformed quickly into a naive and sweet rom com a la 30but17?
  6. @meechuttso So happy to see you too! It's been so long since we shared a SHS's drama! I'm here in the long run and back to the old good habits to dissect every scene, and to write insanely long posts full of impossible theories and literary non sensical parallels. If you all don't end up hating me for that, then we'll have hopefully, this time only fun since the endgame is clear!
  7. I willd definitely because V Live interviews are usually subbed! The one that SHS did back in the days with the cast of Secret Forest was and it was fun! I'm also curious about her chemistry off screen with the rest of the cast! Hopefully, we'll get few gifs from it! Credit: KlNKEY Edit to change the gifs since some have been posted already by @immorethant Credit : Ltheflower It's been posted too but i wanted to say out loud that this version of the poster is way more appealing!
  8. @Ni WenI'm ready too! @immorethantThank you so much for the trailer! Look at them! This couple is already epic! Credit:OAO3017 The positive : overload with cuteness the chemistry between the main couple is definitely here an endearing male lead character: foolish and tender a badass and yet vulnerable heroine a charismatic second male lead a pretty cinematography The less positive: Lot of stalking Why do the main male characters feel like touching our heroine so much without asking first: her blindness is not a green light to do it their way Hopefully it will be less creepy in context. Edit to add those pics that we shamefully forgot! This guy is too hot to be ignored!
  9. I think we are all saying the same thing: that her health is the most important, we just not worry the same depending on our views and experience. I have lived a long phase where i was too way too thin but recovered from it: not only the weigth loss but also the medical consequences of the trouble and today there's no signs of it; so i trust her like @Ni Wen and @jakey09 to know her limits and not push herself too hard, and in case she does to rise again. Wow, congrats on the positive changes, new found well being and feeling of comfort with your body! I can totally see why she inspired you: there's something about her determination, hard work and energy that is contagious! It's a big part of her charm. That's it! It's not only her job, it's her passion she dreams since she is very young to become an actress. So, i believe no matter how hard her training can be and no matter the pressure it puts on her life, all the enjoyment and well being, all the positive energy that she gets from it strengthen her enough to face the challenges and maintain a balance in her life. If the ratings are good and they will be good, she will officially become KBS Queen! It's good for her popularity but i wonder how long she will sustain to do only romcom and only for this network. I don't like the idea that she could be typecast. Her range is too large for her to be condemned to play one kind of heroine. Thank you for the update! The actors are not posting much during filming which is a big loss for us. Thankfully the fans are watching/stalking them! I see that people on all social media seem to be very eager to watch the drama and start to ship them. Honestly this excitation made me curious too. Hopefully, their chemistry will live up to the expectations...
  10. I think i'll wait a little bit to see if it deserves more concern: i mean if she doesn't win weight during her next project (which should be easy she loves to eat!) and doesn't take a break after it, i'll be seriously worried. But for now, i feel like her weight loss, even excessive, is understandable: it's what ballerinas look like. Refusing to look the part would seem unprofessional, a lack of commitment. She is far from being a professional dancer, so she will certainly be criticized for the lack of realism of her dance scenes, she can't afford to lose more credibility points for not making enough efforts, even though the it's not the point of the drama (love is the main subject). I see her as someone who can go far to immerse herself in a role, but also as someone who bounces quickly into the next project and doesn't keep much of the hardship she sometimes suffers to live up to the high expectations she has for herself. In all cases, the ideal would be for her to have a summer break where she takes time to travel: a tour of Europe with lot of pretty food pics on her ig would be a nice change. Edit to add this: Apparently, Koreans viewers are spoiled by KBS:) It seems to be a selection for an event/screening for the premiere. I like how they hyped the drama so far: they really want high ratings!
  11. I had the same thought! It's a drama made to make us eat pop corn! I'm troubled by her weight: she clearly was forced to lose a lot, even too much, to fit the role of a ballerina. I hope she will get back to a more healthy appearance after the drama. However I thought she was really pretty in the Guerilla date teasers. Her long legs and make up killed me. Some random thoughts (because i'm in the mood to write) matched with a fitting wonderful pretty gif: Credit: OAO3017 Her co-star KMS looks way younger than his real age: i had to check his birth date. Hard to believe she's only 2 years older than him (how does he manage to have such a perfect baby skin?) However the second lead LDG is older and it breaks my heart because she has so clearly a better chemistry with older men! I'm cursed because the promo vid for his character made him look like a an obsessive stalker. They're trying to kill any SLS, even before the drama air. A girl is never free to ship peacefully. Visually the couple she made with Sung Hoon is still n°1: they looked real. But Ji An and Hyuk have my heart forever: i will never be ready to give up this ship. She has become KBS rom com muse: starring in all their big success (it will be one without a doubt) I need to buy a stock of popcorn.
  12. Has anyone else watched those 2 first episodes? It wasn't an easy watch: slow pace, lack of music and strange mix of genres (lot of unexpected humor/comedy tone) weighed on this start, but by the end of episode 2 i was so completely convinced that i'm already suffering from withdrawal. I don't know how i'm going to wait a complete and long week for the rest... I haven't watched s1 because of the cast: too many young actors. This season fixed the problem and gathered some of my favourite actors: Chun Ho Jin, Esom notably. They totally live up to my expectations. Uhm Tae Goo is a revelation for me and though his character seems two dimensional, made only of excess, i think the actor keeps him grounded by showing a subtle vulnerability underneath his gross manners and lack of conscience. I can definitively sense that he's a not a lost cause. The actor has an excellent physical presence and physical abilities. I'm curious to know how he will transform his character from a real jerk to a true hero. Kim you Min is a novelty too to me: a very talented man who is capable to go from the fake narcissistic man who loves to drown in the attention given by pretty young women, easily manipulated, to the generous foul who accepted to pretend to be the husband to help a mother to give birth in the middle of nowhere without epidural. The villagers are all precious: the actors are mostly veterans who seem to have lived all their life together. I'm afraid they won't all survive, which worries me a lot since i'm already invested in their stories. Favourites scenes: the delivery scene (including the ambulance part) was the scene of the week for me. "You forgot to give me the wallet" "I saved you" was the best encounter between two main characters so far. First drama of 2019 that i'm truly enjoying. Hopefully it will stay this way.
  13. Thank @Ni Wenfor your warm welcome. I missed you too guys! Hopefully (fingers crossed that real life won't be a mess again in the next weeks), i 'll be able to follow my plans to watch this project live with the minions here. Though only with the lowest expectations. I can't resist anymore: i just miss her on my screen, especially since i lost a little bit my hope to see her films one day. So at one point i i decide to follow my "heart" and not give up on her career. Honestly the storyline seems close to 30but17 (that i didn't watch except for the gifs) : pure entertainment and nothing to think about. However for Angels' Last Mission, through the promo material, i expect a romance somehow slightly less naive, with characters more rounded or mature. I don't mind too much romance when the characters act their age and the relationship is kept credible at least. The main character is an angel, so the fantasy/fantastic should bring enough twists and tension, with everything working against this romance, to keep the story dynamic and not only/too much sweet and fluffy. Let's stay positive and enjoy the pretty! Credit: OAO3017 Credit: L_eloquence
  14. Those reviews are among the 1st ones i read when the drama aired on SBS. Few people on Dramabeans were negative too (i'm talking about comments written before the recaps). But on Tumblr and Twitter, international fans seemed to have enjoyed more the drama. She did a strong performance but it's hard to say that she could have deserved a Daesang if the drama went longer. I think the change that i mentioned about the writing would have been really necessary to make her performance really noticed.
  15. She looks stunning in red and with long hair! Thanks for sharing chingus! But i can't see how she could lose more weight, she's already very thin. So many pages have been added since my last visit! You guys know how to stay busy even when it's quieter for Uri Baby. I have a lot to catch up but i will start first with my review for Hymn of Death. I finally watched it on Netflix and was surprised to enjoy it a lot more than i thought i would! The fan reviews weren't positive: i was told the acting even for SHS was wooden and the drama lacked soul and emotion.To be honest, the trailers seemed to confirm it. But while it felt indeed like an incomplete work, a drama that didn't reach its full potential, it still delivered a lot in term of character development and cinematography. I don't regret at all watching it and would have liked to see more of the story. The good: Shim Deok! she's a very impressive heroine, who got it all: heart, intelligence, talent, independence of mind, loyalty and courage, a strong personality that she used to support her political views about freedom and progressive fight for a better place for women in society. Basically everything you want from an heroine. The best character that SHS has played since Eun soo! SHS's acting! she literally carried the drama alone at one point (her co-star was clearly not invested but more of it in the bad part). It took her one episode to fully own her character, but after that she shined with a strong sense of confidence: as usual she made the best of the script. She got to the tip Shim Deok's identity, and had a clear vision of her character's ordeal and emotions that she showed through a delicate, subtle and diverse range of expressions. She made relatable the conflicted emotions in which Shim Deok was locked: her desire to realize her dream, to follow her heart and her loyalty to her family, while the conflict could have looked too traditional to understand for a modern audience. Watching her look so mesmerizing in those superb outfits, i couldn't help but imagine her as one of Jane's Austen best heroines: Elisabeth Bennet, Elinor Dashwood, or Anne Elliott (my favourites). There's no hope for a korean adaptation but it would fit her very well, more than a sageuk. I truly think her acting style suits more the modern heroines. The costumes and sets: i'm not sure about the historical accuracy (i saw a post on tumblr where the production team was criticized for using props that didn't exist during the years in which the story took place) but the vibrant colors, consistency of the palette of colors, and attention to details fully worked to give the feeling of escapism in another period despite the limited budget. The cinematography was superb, almost on a film level. Be it by capturing the last drop of rain after a storm at night, or the devastated expression of Shim Deok's during her silent call in ep 3, i could feel that every shot had an intention and supported the way to tell this story. Visually, it was like watching a painting, an immersion in the details of the work of the artist to get the taste, feel and vibe of a period/time long gone. Lee Sang Yeob's cameo : i loved his appearance as Shim Deok's suitor because i feel like he had the right chemistry with SHS and really tried to convey the (failed) romantics feelings that his character had for Shim Deok. I wasn't completely convinced that he could have been such good spirit about her rejection. Maybe i'm reading too much in it but felt that somehow while he looked happy for her (and maybe relieved: he might have been in love with someone else just like she did since it wasn't clear if it was only his family's choice or his choice too to marry her), the scandal that came just after the cancellation of their engagement seemed completely staged (i don't understand why his family would have wanted her so much since she was very poor, maybe, for her fame? But wasn't her activity of singer something that was socially disregarded?). I'm pretty sure that the administrator working for the Japanese colonial authority and the man who lend her money were in cahoots to ternish her reputation and force her to do their will and her ex fiance (involuntarily) played a part in it though he gently warned her about the consequences for her. The end/ep3: i loved how the script explained their suicide and linked it to their family issues. It wasn't only about being separated, but also about not being able as individuals to make more sacrifices than they have already accepted. Their lives became suffocating and running away wasn't an option: the guilt would have overpowered Shim Deok. To leave behind her family suffering miserably because of their poverty and the harassment of the japanese occupant wasn't even thinkable for her. I think Woo Jin had already accepted to give up his father: his decision was made when he left home. Going abroad wouldn't have make much difference despite what his wife said. But living without Shim Deok didn't make sense for him while dying at her side was a guarantee to not suffer anymore. The bad Lee Jong Suk was clearly miscast but it's not completely a problem of acting skills: it's true that he obviously lacked the subtlety, depth, and intensity required to portray a character who had long moments of inaction/contemplation, but it's mostly because of his lack of interest in Woo Jin. The character was reduced because of LJS's poor understanding of the script, to be a rich boy with pretentions/fantasy to be a writer, bored to death with his life. I never felt that i was watching an artist being unfairly repressed and prevented to express his voice/talent in a world not ready to accept his view, like the script tried to tell us. LJS lacked the passion required to convey to the audience Woo Jin's hopeless dilemma (with the exception of the scenes he confronted his father and looked finally alive!). His individual scenes seemed rather like a photoshoot where he was trying to look good. Being an ancient model was here an easy way out for him: he knew how to make make himself present on screen while avoiding to act. His scenes with SHS lacked chemistry: i never felt on his side the attraction. It's like he was playing opposite to his little sister and couldn't convince himself to see more in her. A situation that i can't explain logically because she put her heart in her character and was Shim Deok (and brilliant). The writing: I regret that we had to wait ep 3 to see Woo Jin and Shim Deok's motivations developped fully. I wish we spent less time during the 2 first episodes on their romance and more on developping their contrasting personalities and individual convictions. The real Shim Deok and Woo Jin, based on few articles i read, were people who had, before meeting, a hard time to find their place in society because their ideas weren't consensual/conventional for their time. They were clouded by the idea of suicide way before they met but the script romanticized too much their relationship at the expense of accuracy and realism. I'm not fan either of the way her family was presented: their obsession for money was pushed to a degree that made it excessive, unrealistic. Also how could she afford all those beautiful dresses while they could barely eat and she was spending all that she earnt in her family's expenses? The PD was at times so focused on making everything pretty that it ruined the moment: I mean look at the so called scene of torture of Woo Jin after he was arrested. Look too at the scenes on the boat at the end when they danced: Woo Jin and Shim Deok looked like Rose and Jack from the film Titanic! Not only it harmed the credibility of the plot while the story is true (!), but it reduced them to be remembered only as tragic lovers. To sum up, 6 episodes would have been better to develop the story to its full potential and keeping it centered on Shim Deok/SHS while recasting the male lead would have helped too. But overall, it's a good drama and i'm satisfied to have finally watched a project that she did recently that i can praise!
  16. Chingus, i miss you too! Real life has been hard lately. I'm changing jobs often and have to work on a new degree. So i wasn't really motivated to write in Soompi lately. But to escape the pressure, i started a new drama, Children of nobody/Red moon Blue sun and got completely sucked in. The discussions between my friends on twitter brought me back here, only few days ago. I wanted to share with them more comfortably the long and in depth thoughts that this little gem of thriller is inspiring. I wasn't commenting on SHS because i didn't have much to say: i'm still waiting for Netflix to air in my region Hymn of Death, to watch it. I liked a lot the MV Snowfall that she did with Kim Dong Wook but it was too short and didn't allow them to bring out their chemistry or their acting skills. I'm waiting with great hope for The Innocent (is it still the title?), her film with Bae Jong Ok to be filmed and released next year. But i hate her next drama project: i knew she was going to come back on tv with a rom com but the fact she picked one where her male costar is an idol is the worst choice ever. No matter the quality of the content, i will never support her for wasting her time this way, so i'm just keeping my negativity for myself and trying to not annoy my chingus here who still want to enjoy her work! Here few pretty gifs and pics to make up for my absence of activity! Source: OAO3017 I'm sure you're all tired of my endless praise of this drama but what can i do? My love for them refuses to fade away!
  17. I didn't read this scene as being specifically about Ji Heon. It seemed certain to me that he wasn't going to do it anyway: if he wasn't the type to beat suspects like it was clearly established at the start of the drama when he was at his worst, i didn't see any reason for him to change now, no matter how protective he can feel about Woo Kyung and Hana. Unless the writer was trying to emphasize that his speech to Soo Young was more pretense than it he would have admitted and that facing the same circumstances as her, meaning being really pissed off by a suspect, he would lose it like everyone else. I must admit i would like this version a little bit because he didn't just call her out on her bad methods, he too looked down on her and made her feel inferior. I think his ego needed the lesson that she wasn't the only one with a problem with violence. I think Ji Heon's violence and the fact that he was stopped by Hana was a call back to the time Woo Kyung almost murdered the mother of the child she already killed accidentally but was stopped by the girl in the green dress and to the time that So Ra's mother considered killing her husband but couldn't because "that animal was still a human being and the father of the baby she gave birth to". There's a an invisible connection between those three and many others who like them refused to kill because of their values, their empathy or the influence of love. There's a thin line that separate them from the monster that Red Cry is: the urge to kill was real and strong for them but it's also a strong line filled with hope and opportunity for redemption. It's a moral message that can seem simplistic but is actually entirely true to life and doesn't undermine the complexity of world. Thanks for your nice words! All the characters have their dark side and deal more or less well with it, but Red Cry is pure evil without a doubt for me: this killer is planning and executing people as if he/she's a sort of deity with a death and life power over them and doesn't think twice about the consequences of his/her actions on the family. I think this person is just hiding under a pretense of concern his/her murderous impulse while in fact it's all about himself/herself. Pretending killing only bad people feeds him/her superiority complex and made the credule part of the public cheers for him, thus feeding his/her conviction to be and act right. IMO It's an illusion and a trap, nothing more. I agree that multiple interpretations are possible for this part. Mine was influenced by the body language of the actor, but i admit i seem to be more often wrong when it comes to read how korean actors plays with their bodies. His question was abrupt, coming from nowhere and he even startled and intrigued Soo Young. I thought he was thinking a lot, maybe too much on those questions under the pressure of guilt. You made too good theories about his involvement. After considering again his closeness with Woo Kyung, i think it's quite probable that it will be revealed that he's really a pure heart, who was being manipulated and helped unwittingly the killer. I like their new friendship, so i hope she isn't making a mistake by trusting him. He's definitely not ready to enter a balanced relationship: the place that she's taking in his thoughts and discussions is bordering on obsession, as Soo Young told him at least twice. The way she affects his emotions is unhealthy considering their status as detective and suspect. The more he learns about her, the more he's drawn to her. At this pace, he might compromise the investigation, by not being able to not protect her. But we're only at the half of the drama, i don't trust the writer to not mess up a perfectly plotted mystery with a destructive romance like her previous work proved it (Que Sera, Sera was a mess, an intense, haunting, fascinating mess but still a mess). I really believe that Red Cry is an association of two people and maybe more because the level of very personal information about Woo Kyung that he/she's able to gather is just mindblogging. It can't be only someone from the center. How could he/she know that Woon Kyung was meeting Suk-woo’s mother? She never talked to anyone about her. Never said to anyone that the woman found her and asked for money that she payed! And yet Suk-woo’s mother was targeted: she received a poem and was a victim of a hit and run. I still have a hard time to believe that it was an "accident". I wonder if the truck driver wasn't paid to say so and enough desperate to accept this agreement. It's been a long time since i "met" you: last time was on Ocn life on Mars thread. Another excellent drama! I'm glad to find you again here. I cried for her in those scenes. She broke my heart: very few things that she believed to be are really true and she has not even the truth to replace her memories. She has nothing. The scene was scary for me on a horror film level: the way the step mother and Woo Kyung are forced to move her while the sister is obviously very conscious of what's happening around her though she can only move her eyes was unsettling. Like Soo Young said for Woo Kyung, it seemed like her all body was screaming "i know the truth". There's a strong parallel here about the sisters: who they both one physically and the other mentally/psychologically are rendered voiceless. The harsh step mother watching them and refusing to leave their life sounds like an image from a fairy tale who had turned bad. I wonder why she had a fight with her sister. Was the accident of her sister a real accident or the work of Red Cry? If i had more time on my hand, i would rewatch the drama while waiting for the new episodes: i'm sure i'm missing a lot....
  18. As expected, this thread if full of insightful and in depth analysis, thanks to the quality of the members posting here. @liddi and @selenette 's interesting discussion started on twitter lead me to watch the drama ( thanks to both of you for your enthusiasm) and to break my hiatus here because i need space to add few long thoughts: My view is colored by the fact that i have watched a j-drama Kazokugari, produced and aired in 2014 and which might have been a source of inspiration for Children of Nobody. If you want to know more about it, here more similarities between the two works: This being said i'm fully on board with the theory that Woo Kyung isn't the killer, but a victim of abuse who found a way to recover from the trauma and to win a stable life, only to be dragged, again into this pit when she was involved in the accident which killed a child who happened to be abused too. The little girl in green dress is clearly Woo Kyung for me. I 'm convinced of this since the striking scene between them in the kitchen where the girl stopped her from killing her husband and wiped her away her tears. She's been taking care of her since the beginning: warning her by appearing few seconds before the accident, preventing her to act violently few times, or giving her clues about the investigation, so for me she's far more than simply her intuition or her subsconscious taking over because of her trauma/guilt. Actually, i'd rather have no explanation than a psychological/scientific one. I love the idea of her imagination finding an incarnation in a mystical way and it's enough for me. Like everyone i feel like the killer is more than one person and that those people are very close to her. I don't believe it's her family though there's a mystery about her past that her stepmother and her sister have the clues to unlock. They are the masters of the key for her childhood; but like @bebebisous33 pointed it there's a second character navigating in the children care center with this name, though this person has gone unnoticed so far because he's/she's being cautious and smart. For me, the fact the investigation brings the detective team so often to the children center is something planned: i think one of the killer is very confident in his manipulation skills and is provoking the cops because he/she intends to frame Woo Kyung for the crimes. And Eun Ho is obviously an accomplice: either convinced or coerced into kidnapping Ha Na but in all cases, he's a hand in what happened to her. His line about how Ha Na seems happier now was delivered with enough despair and hope mixed at the same time to make his involvement and guilt clear. Though he's probably not aware of the damage that can be done to Woo Kyung, he seems to like her enough to not be involved knowingly in something that could hurt her. I want all the children to survive and be well but her more than anyone else. I'm very attached to this little angel! She's certainly becoming the most important secondary character so far. Her subplot have been explored in details and the main characters have grown intensely attached to her. After the discussion in the car between Ji Heon and Woo Kyung when she pointed to him that instead of being persistent he was just acting naive, i fear for them both. I feel that this case is the most dangerous in term of what could be at risk for them if they can't keep their frustration or their anger in check. I wonder if Ji Heon could lose his ethics on this case and if Woo Kyung could lose her professional credibility/job and maybe consequently her daughter, by acting too harshly. Let's pray they'll have a happy ending after all the misery they've been suffering! On the romance front, i'm in the minority here: i believe solitude is the best way for Woo Kyung. i'm really bitter about how easy things went for Woo Kyung's ex husband. When she was at her worst, he was wallowing in self pity, and lack of luck for being the husband of a such depressed woman. But he was certainly very happy when she was in good health to be married to a pretty woman, competent at work, devoted to her family to the point of sacrificing her needs and make him her priority. Everything" nice" he seems to have done since the divorce for Woo Kyung is because he got the separation easily and without damage. I don't trust him to not hurt her again if he discovers she's having a "problem" again. After being with someone so selfish for so long, i think she deserves a lot of peace of mind, time to heal and learn again to take care of herself, to aknowledge that she had her own needs independantly of the people close to her, even her daughter. I don't ship with her Ji Hoon: not only it would be awkward for them to hook up when their exes are already together, he's also clearly not the right match for her. The drama spent a lot of time in the beginning showing that his relationship with his ex girlfriend ended on a sour note: he was in denial, stalking her even at her work. He was clingy, possessive and jealous. She would have been completely legitimate in filing a complaint against him. Nothing in the drama so far says that it's not his normal way to act in a relationship. The fact that he's been acting in a distinct tender way with Woo Kyung might be that he's more likely to be nice at the start when the attraction is new and fresh. Also, it seems to me that the attraction is one sided: Woo Kyung is over her husband but she's not showing any sign of being ready to move in with someone new. I believe she cares about him, but she's certainly not watching him with the same puppies eyes that he as for her. She wasn't comfortable and ran away when she realized she was sleeping in his car and they were alone, whereas he was ready to settle and wait for her to wake up while enjoying the intimacy. He became cold when she admitted that Eun Ho (who is a very cute boy) made the drawing for her while she never showed any curiosity about his female partner and their relationship. I wouldn't mind the age gap if the characters didn't seem so incompatible in term of taste and way of living. Hopefully things will stay blocked at this stage: the characters need development and romance is not requirement for that.
  19. Thanks for sharing! The n°1 original is definitely my favourite! I love the fact that she broke all Ocn's records! Google tells me that the article is about TvN new romcom and compare the new heroine to her character in High School King of Savvy and few others. It seems that Tvn rom coms like to reverse tropes and use oddballs girls who fall for the hot type, and win the boy because of their pure heart, honesty and brave attitude facing life and despite their looks and quirkiness. High School King of Savvy is my favourite k-romcom and i adored LHN in it. Her chemistry with SIG reminded of those old american romcom from Hollywood Golden Age where the actors could do anything together: sing, walk, dance or play the most silly scenes and still be in sync, oozing chemistry. Watching this drama was like eating a marshmallow: the sweetness was off the chart! And boy their kisses looked so romantic and good! I especially loved that Soo Young stayed unconventional until the end: she won maturity and looked more confident about her looks but only at the very end, after few years of marriage. I loved too that the writer wasn't afraid of the age gap. It was the right choice to let them be together: no matter how senseless it looked based on social conventions, it was completely true to the characters! Credit: to the owner. Sorry it's the only gif from HSKOS that i seem to have kept! Edit: but here more vids! So many fond memories! Including the OST!
  20. To root or not root for them is the throbbing/nagging question which haunted my viewing and their relationship all along the drama, and sadly until the very end. Needless to say, after "thousand" rewatch, i still don't know the answer. It became an obsession and i'm still deep into it without a desire to get ride of its roots. It's a case where the actors improved so much the writing, that their characters became a real thing, so complex that you can't get enough of it. You'll have so much fun with this drama! Just take your time with it (though you won't because it's a thriller and the cliffanghers were excruciating!). Your enthusiasm is lovely to read and contagious! I just want to be the same, and stop being so negative sometimes! You just broke my heart again with those words and especially this gif! Oh Boy, her smile "shudders" Mindblowing! Where does this gif come from ( i mean which drama)? @immorethant What an excellent choice of eating gifs! Notice that she puts a special effort on her chewing skills when her character is supposed to be in love. The 2nd and 3rd gif are from MGL, when Ji An was eating with Hyuk and the context made her appetite very meaningful: Ji An couldn't eat so carelessly in front of anyone but him at this point of the drama, which meant she could only be her true self with him and it felt so liberating for her but also for us to watch her enjoy herself in a drama so gloomy! I'm totally cheering for you to do it! I'm certain that she will be very happy/curious to meet a fan who wants to cook for her just because she loves it! Yes!

  21. Chingu, we, SHS fans, know better than anyone than 3 solid/good episodes is better than 50 episodes so bad that it seems that you're trapped in hell with the characters. At least if the drama is not good, they won't make us miserable for too long. Thanks for all the updates and translations @meechuttso! Strange how this thread is empty of SHS fans comments: usually we are very talkative people about oori baby's projects. An excess of romance in her works this this year? Or is it the tragic and predictable end that blocks us? I admit that i will have a hard time to enjoy a project where her character will die again: i'm still not over the last time it happened.... But to be honest, herself she also barely promoted it. Has she lost interest for it?
  22. Why are so mean to me? You know what everything related to Eun Soo and SF do to my heart! I have such a hard time on restraining myself to not spam this thread with only SF pics and gifs! I blame the following spree on you! Oh God, they are so not made for each other, but why then do they look so right together? Thank you so much for sharing! Oh my!!!!Im dead!!! This coat, the white blouse, her hair!!!!! Everything is SO PERFECT in this look! I'm literally exploding under the feels! I need a snoopy gif too to express my feelings ( i'm not saying that i'm not tempted to steal the one generously used by @meechuttso) Why do those posters look like they have been made for a post war chinese film? The chemistry is nowhere to be seen! Hopefully they'll look better together on screen. Thank you for the report and the translation! I commend your journalistic integrity! Full respect to our team leader who work hard to bring the freshest news to us! I'm so relieved that it's not a romantic comedy! I get that she needed to clean the frustration that she feltduring MGL but she did 2 projects now centering about the love life of her characters! That's enough for at least 6 months!
  23. Cold Case is back! My show is back! It took ages for the 1st episode to be available but boy it was worth the wait! Everything what i loved about season 1 was still there! my favourite team of detectives ever, the most iconic characters, are back, especially the charismatic and so stoic Ishikawa Yuri! All the main actors are doing a fantastic job in making their characters compelling and very relatable. This superb ensemble cast is fantastically lead by Yoshida Yoo, and they all have an excellent chemistry. I loved the continuity: the drama picked up 2 years after, making the timeline in sync with the viewers time. However, It didn't seem the characters have changed a lot: except for Yuri who is still dealing with the trauma related to the events which end Cold Case 1 on such a big bang. I really like the small little pieces left here and here to suggest her state of mind: how she avoided her therapist and the fact that she still can't use a gun. I adored (and rewatched few times) her scene with the team leader Motoki Hidetoshi. Their mentor/mentee relationship is a real treat. They have the trust and the respect what we all want between a senior officer and a younger one and the gender difference made it even more powerful, because never the writing nor the actors implied that it could have been more. They have just the right amount of tension and tenderness to warm my heart without detracting from the cases or the credibility of the story. The supporting cast was as always solid and the cinematography efficient, with some very beautiful shots showing that the budget is higher than usual for a j-drama. Though the plot seemed quite simple and straighthforward at first, the mystery was intriguing enough to keep my interest during the episode but it's the final that really won all the superlatives. Not only the twists were weally mindblowing, i also loved that the drama wasn't shy to ask the most difficult ethical questions: stopping military nuclear operation seems a very legit option when fighting for a better world but does it justify to use violence to achieve it? The end was really brilliant and mature in the way it refused to condemn one side more than the other and left the responsability to everyone involved. I can't wait for ep2! .
