  1. Really?! Good for her! I want to know the details, too. I hope he's a good guy, just like Ok Taecyeon. We support her and Taec. Hahaha. When did she post this? March 7 of this year? Was this song something they played?? I can't remember now. I went through Ok Taecyeon's twitter? account and I saw him "jumping" again (or leaping). This was 10 days before his discharge. Hahaha. The sheep!!! 9 days before his discharge 8 days before discharge D-7 D-6 D-5 D-4 D-3 D-2 D-1 Then on D-Day, he posted this: This guy is really such a good planner. I'm glad our Guigui met him.
  2. I only read the translations, not the actual novel itself because, as you know, Chinese isn't my first language or my second, third, fourth, fifth... unlike you multi-lingual ladies here. I read at least two different translations after I've written my blog posts. I didn't want to be influenced by the writer's novel so I only read the translations after I've blogged about most of the episodes. You see, the original writer's novel may be different from the screenwriter's script which, in turn, will be different from the viewer's interpretation. I had to read more than one translation. Because the style, flow, and the language proficiency of the two translations were different, I could determine whether I'm missing a certain nuance or translation of the original writer's novel. See? I did my due diligence. The movie's okay. The story's still interesting. But as I said it’s not faithful to the original novel. I f you want one example of the difference between the movie and tv versions vis-à-vis the novel, I just completed one post about it here: https://bitchesoverdramas.com/2019/05/24/love-o2o-the-movie-vs-the-tv-drama I’m sorry you’ll have to visit my blog for it because I don’t have time to transfer everything including the pictures here. I''m behind with my blog posts on the Chinese dramas, "Put Your Head on my Shoulder" and "Le Coup de Foudre." lol. I'm being asked to post on "Abyss" and "Angel's Last Mission: Love", too. So many dramas, so little time. Tagging @rocat .
  3. On netflix. I only watched half of the movie. The actress was pretty but the guy looked plebeian. Will have to bribe myself with ice cream just to finish it. Will review it (sometime this lifetime, lol) and give a 5-point comparison between movie and drama. I have to limit myself to 5 because you know how obsessive I can get. I think drama is more faithful to the novel than the movie, including the characterization of the heroine. See you later!
  4. Welcome back, Taecyeon! I'm reposting from the soompi article. From soompi news: https://www.soompi.com/article/1324813wpp/taecyeon-discharged-from-military-talks-about-missing-fellow-2pm-members-thanks-fans-for-waiting Taecyeon Discharged From Military; Talks About Missing Fellow 2PM Members + Thanks Fans For Waiting 2PM’s Taecyeon is back! In the morning of May 16, Taecyeon was discharged from the military and his duties as a sergeant and active duty soldier. The event took place in Ilsan in Gyeonggi Province, and Taecyeon said, “I couldn’t sleep that well. I was nervous. This is the first time I’m standing in front of cameras in so long that I’m not sure what I look like right now.” He also added, “I heard the trumpet this morning as our alarm, so I still can’t believe I’ve been discharged. I think it will hit me tomorrow morning when I’m woken up by an alarm that isn’t a trumpet.” He took a moment to thank all the fans who had shown up as he said, “First, I want to thank my fans for waiting for me. I didn’t know this many people would come today. I promise to return soon with something good.” When Taecyeon was asked what he wanted to do most, he replied, “I want to see the other 2PM members.” He added, “Two of them are currently in the army, and I really miss the other members. I hope our loving members can gather soon and show everyone something great.” He also thanked TWICE as he chose them as the girl group he missed the most, adding, “It’s been difficult to see them because of scheduling. But they still sent me a video. I’m grateful.” Fellow 2PM member Chansung was there to greet him, and the two exchanged big smiles and warm greetings when they saw each other. Taecyeon enlisted on September 4, 2017 and has now been discharged on May 16, 2019. He is set to pursue new activities as both a member of 2PM and as an actor. In July 2018, Taecyeon decided to part ways with JYP Entertainment and signed a contract with 51K, starting a new chapter in his life as both a singer and actor. Welcome back Taecyeon!
  5. Yes, I like Lee Junho. He plays the "everyman" roles convincingly. I also helps that his features are those of an ordinary man. Seo Kang Joon... he's a heartthrob isn't he? I think if the camera just focuses on his eyes, I'll believe anything that he says as the gospel truth. He must have been a snake charmer in a previous life or something. I made a list on my blog of all the other idol-actors I considered good. Good thinking! Thanks. That seems to be our missing @usafarmgirl. I teased her so often about having to milk cows and coming home with the cows. I don't have instagram or facebook though so I won't be able to contact her. But I wish her well wherever she is. And will light a candle for her safe journey. @kokodus, don't wrack yourself with guilt. Let's remember the fun times and good memories. 542 544
  6. huh? You didn't know, too? She appears to have disappeared, went off the grid. Oh dear. My top four used to be: Siwan, Kyungsoo Do (because they can act) and Ok Taecyeon and Yoon Doojoon (my "participation trophy" recipients, hahaha. They're on my list because I like their dependable guy image, not because they can act ACT) I understand about stalking. You should see my good friend @nrllee; she's an expert at this "researching" business. She must have an algorithm somewhere. +2 534
  7. Oh? Is he an idol, too?? Uh.oh. I'm going to have trouble with my list of "Top 4" idol-actors. I've already limited myself to only 4 idols, and I had to shuffle my list to include Park JinYoung from "He's Psychometric." 522 By the way, where is @usafarmgirl? Her name's not coming up when I tag her? edited: Get well soon, @triplem
  8. Just dropping to look for my old teammate @TRaNz. Hey, dude, your Taylor Swift just released a new song!! Did you download it already? She yells, "Je suis calme!!" Going to watch Abyss, too, and probably blog about it. Is AHS the lead in "17 going 30"? +2 514
  9. I agree. 1. Phones are waterproof nowadays so Lee Ahn's phone should be fine. Samsung even sold exploding phones that they had to recall, right? (lol) 2. It's superfluous to watch: a. Lee Ahn panicking and calling the ambulance b. ambulance arriving and undoing the chain c. police cars chasing the criminal and the criminal escaping on foot I can connect the dots so I don't have to SEE the scenes to know that rescue happened and that the criminal eluded them again. It's more important to MOVE the plot along than to shoot these redundant ambulance and chase scenes. Anyway, here are my thoughts on Kim Gab Yong's "Client" who didn't want loose ends. To me, the worst case scenario is not "Hyung....omoni," as Lee Ahn speculated. It's somebody else. And THAT person is the reason Sungmo's mom "attempted suicide the day she found out the deaths of Kang Hee Sook and Park Soo Young." https://bitchesoverdramas.com/2019/04/17/hes-psychometric-kim-gab-yongs-boss And here are my random comments on Episode 12: My comments on Ep 12 https://bitchesoverdramas.com/2019/04/18/hes-psychometric-ep-12-random-notes Same here. I want her safe and I want her happy. About two weeks ago, I said that she'd been ignoring death and I didn't like it. https://bitchesoverdramas.com/2019/04/07/hes-psychometric-ignoring-death Here's my interpretation of the sunflowers. This was written almost two weeks ago, too, so I haven't updated the sunflower sighting. https://bitchesoverdramas.com/2019/04/10/hes-psychometric-ep-10-on-sunflowers-mums-and-yss-construction and here: https://bitchesoverdramas.com/2019/04/15/hes-psychometric-osts-and-sunflowers As you can see I've been busy writing all sorts of nonsense about this kdrama. lol. Even though I expect the worst for Jisoo, I do wish nothing but the very best for her. Enjoy!!
  10. Just dropping by to post a brief excerpt of my analysis of the "Little Prince." ... She became more important to him than his pain. He was responsible for her, as the little prince was responsible for his rose. In the story, the little prince realized how important the rose was for him, and he wanted to return to his planet. He worried about the flower he left in his planet unprotected. He was searching for his way back to the planet when he encountered the narrator. Likewise Lee Ahn realized that Jaein was more important to him than his personal demons. And that's why the staging of this exact moment was brilliant to me. Sungmo (aka the fox) reassured Jaein (aka the rose) that Lee Ahn just needed some time but he would be back soon. Like the little prince, he had to travel outside his own world of hurt and anger to see what truly matters to him the most. link: http://bitchesoverdramas.com/2019/04/12/hes-psychometric-on-the-little-prince *************** There's also some concern that in Episode 10, it's Lee Ahn who's been doing the giving while Jaein doesn't do squat for Ahn. In case there are some of you who also feel this way, my answer is here: http://bitchesoverdramas.com/2019/04/13/hes-psychometric-on-creating-heroes/ I'm sorry I haven't contributed much to this thread. I've been busy blogging about this, too, so soompi has unfortunately fallen on the wayside. Part of me would like to see another guy, other than a blood-relation of SM, be the killer/stalker. I think it's a terrible burden on any individual to know that he's genetically flawed or that he carries in his blood, not designer genes, but "monster" genes.
  11. Thanks @lynne22, I recently started watching chinese dramas. But I'm going to dip my toesies into Chinese historical dramas. The problem is they're all 50+ episodes so the first one has to be pretty (visually pretty), romantic (no unhappy and open endings), solid (no plot holes and too-stupid-to-live heroines) and conventional love story so I'm not traumatized. Meaning, nothing like Scarlet Heart, nothing epic like Gone with the Wind, and absolutely nothing Game of Thrones-ish. lol. Did I cross out all the Chinese historical dramas? Do you know about this historical drama where the female lead is a general and the guy is a sulky prince she's forced to marry? I read a small blurb about it but I lost my notes. Do you recommend it? Thanks. Maybe @angelangie will know, too. +2 914
  12. Yes, ma'am. I almost didn't join in because I didn't want to backtrack. @lynne22 What Cdrama is this? I'm on team add, right? If not, oh well. I just made a basket for the opposing team. hahaha. 842
  13. That's our Taecyeon!! With all the disgusting and criminal actions of the "oppas" involving in that Burning Sands? Sun? Sandals? I'm glad Guigui's husband knew better. That's why I said in my blog that I'm going to support him as an idol-actor. I don't care if he isn't going to win any award soon for acting. He's a good guy and he gets my vote.
  14. That painting is by Titian, @nrllee "Allegory of Prudence." The three men, Old Man, Adult, Youth, represent the passage of time, or the past, present, and the future. There's an inscription on the upper part of the painting -- written like a rainbow arc on top of the heads. "Ex praeterito praesens prudenter agit, ni futuram actione deturpet" which means roughly, "From the past (or learning from the past), the present acts prudently, to avoid messing up future action." My take on it: http://bitchesoverdramas.com/2019/03/26/hes-psychometric-ep-5-the-painting
  15. Just finished writing on props. My take on this statue, tarot card, and the unfinished butterfly will be there: https://bitchesoverdramas.com/2019/03/23/hes-psychometric-on-the-use-of-props Also finished my partial take on Kang SungMo. Link to the post is here: https://bitchesoverdramas.com/2019/03/22/hes-a-psychometric-ep-4-on-kang-sungmo Enjoy the weekend!
