  1. Hahaha, this is hilarious. I also love how apt it was that Kim Jae-wook got to play such an open-minded character, bearing in mind he had been mistaken for being gay because of his role in Antique Bakery. It's like the writer wanted to tell people somethin' somethin'. Well, at least it seemed that way in the first half of the drama. Half the time, I think the writer shaped Ryan after Kim Jae-wook, lol.
  2. Yay, thanks for more sneakers appreciation! Looking forward to the fashion runway ones! I love it when he speaks Japanese, he just sounds so awesome - a bit gentler, yes, but also really soothing. I'm just so happy to know that he has managed to keep in touch with the language even after all these years, and it's so wonderful that he got to film an entire film speaking Japanese (even if they made him have an accent there). In Butterfly Sleep, when Chan-hae asks Ryoko, よく眠れましたか。I was struck by the tenderness in his voice. Ahhh. Lovely. I hope he gets to do more Japanese films. I'm dying for WOWOW to tap him up for a J-drama. I hope he picks solid projects, so I'm not too fussed with the wait.
  3. Yes, that's the one, where Ryan and Deok-mi are talking on the phone while Cindy is sleeping in Deok-mi's room at her mom's. I think I like most of his pajamas, he just looks much more comfortable, and a comfy Lion is always good. Looking forward to more sneakers! Edit: saw Butterfly Sleep, Kim Jae-wook was great in all his emotional scenes, especially the last one, which was fantastic. I'm so glad he got to do a Japanese film and speak Japanese, and also work with Nakayama Miho, who was excellent as well. I hope he gets the opportunity to do more work in Japan!
  4. Awww, I like him in that black top! And I also really like your sneakers tribute, I'm always happy to see him in comfy clothes and shoes, haha. Think we have to move on to pjs soon, lol. Here's one of him in grey that I thought looks snug on him:
  5. Hahaha. I do like that kiss a lot, I think the build-up was fantastic. Here's Ryan in white again. I think this was in ep 5? The dark blue walls really bring out the white, and he looks great. Love him in comfy, flowy clothes.
  6. LaBit photo of the day. I know this was all in Deok-mi's mind, but damn that build-up was hot.
  7. https://www.soompi.com/article/1331240wpp/k-drama-actors-whose-intense-kiss-scenes-made-us-blush Well, we know who tops the list! K-Drama Actors Whose Intense Kiss Scenes Made Us Blush TV/Film Jun 11, 2019 by C. Hong While the status quo has changed a bit in recent years, Korean dramas tend to play it safe when it comes to physically intimate scenes. This means that the kiss scene, as the height of romantic intimacy, is the crucial turning point in any K-drama relationship. Kisses in K-dramas can be surprising (cue the classic wide-eyed reaction from the female lead), creative with props (the toast scene from “Pinocchio,” anyone?), or accidental (the classic “fell down on top of someone’s lips” cliché). The best of them, however, are sweet and tender and romantic, making all the hours we’ve invested into the characters’ love story worth the wait. In addition to our previous list, here are seven actors who have made us blush with their intense kiss scenes: Kim Jae Wook
  8. Ha, I like that the article put Kim Jae-wook first. His kisses are very sensual, and I love that he wasn't eating off Park Min-young's face. He was gentle and tender with her. She was responsive, and that showed her comfort and trust level with him. Damn, Ryan and Deok-mi should have gotten a room after that makeout session at the furniture workshop! Of the other actors on the list, Ji Chang-wook is also a pretty good kisser, I liked his kiss with Nam Ji-hyun in Suspicious Partner. Park Hyung-shik ain't no slouch either. But of course, Kim Jae-wook rules.
  9. Ha, to be honest I don't quite like that sweater. Although I do agree he looks great in collar shirts. I think I prefer him in this colour block sweater when he went over to Deok-mi's apartment:
  10. LaBit photo of the day, from one of my favourite segments of the drama. Ryan and Deok-mi have so much love for each other.
  11. Yes, there are a few references throughout the drama on the wordplay of Deok-mi's name. Ryan also gave Da-in her artist name of "Many People". Then there was the joke about "already chosen seat" and Seon-joo's name in ep 16. Latte's Korean name, Na Hee-yeon, is also a very drawn-out pronunciation of Ryan (or Lion). And of course, the geum vs eun (gold vs silver) comparison between Ryan and Eun-gi. Soompi also has a list of Korean fan slang: https://www.soompi.com/article/1315253wpp/her-private-life-reveals-list-of-must-know-korean-fan-slang
  12. Mo Tae-gu of the day: His eyes edit: does anyone have a supercut of Kim Jae-wook's scenes in Coffee Prince? Specifically where he speaks Japanese.
  13. Nope, he will always be Ryan Gold. Anyway, I like him in this colour combo, one of the few saving graces of the crap that was ep 15:
  14. Yes, I also find it excessive and borderline obsessive, all this minute scrutiny, constant tagging and stuff. Fans want a lot of attention from their favourite celebs, and tagging is one way of getting that attention. And then all the delusional comments... at some point, it goes overboard and becomes disrespectful. Given that we're here in this thread because of this drama about fandom and fangirling, I find the resultant shipping a bit ironical. It's been my experience, having watched any number of dramas, that the best co-stars in terms of chemistry almost never get together in real life (famous example in my signature banner). Of course there are exceptions, but most just move on to the next project and challenge. @Ondine, yes I think Seo Ye-hwa could be part of the cast, there's a photo of her with the other cast members - I believe she tagged Lee Hee-joon and Jin Seon-kyu, who are headlining the musical. It's nice to see her HPL cast-mates coming to support her, if so.
