Because hey, if teenage Do Yeon's gonna be a rebel, we all know that it'll be for the sake of helping someone

Is she helping him with the wall which was defamed by the hooligans?(Like they have written words like Psycho, killer etc)

Writers sort of forgot about the wall, they should have added a scene where Kim Do Yeon helped PJG repaint the wall, like you did, at least they should have added it in the flashback scenes.

Awesome! I did think she deserved to get something, but the competition among actresses was just too intense at the SBS Drama Awards.

I feel the same. She should have won that best actress for Miniseries, like, her role was really versatile. Like, she had played 3 roles with different age group. But still this APAN award sort of holds more prestige than SBS's. The former takes into account the acting of the artist where as the latter given more importance to the popularity of the artists irrespective of their acting in the drama.

I wasn't expecting him to also bring up Seo Jang Hoon, though

Same here, and I find it sweet that Seo Jang Hoon paid for Joo won and his parent's meal. Lol, it is only possible for KB's cast members to turn any story into joke(Like they were saying he should have bought the whole Chinese restaurant for Joo won instead of bill). And Park Joon-myeon's dream about Joo won giving his poop was funny as hell. At first I did not understand what she is saying, I thought like, did really Joo won did it? And then I got to know that it was in her dreams

And IVY'S Emergency Room incident was also funny as hell and I did not expect Joo won get it right, since in 2D1N we sucked at riddles and quizzes, I can see that he as improved a lot and became wise as he grew older

:approves: Among other things, but this is part of it :)

This is actually the first fic idea I had for Alice, almost right after watching Episode 1. The way I saw it, there was no way that Do Yeon wouldn't have tried to help to fix the damage she'd inadvertently caused - even if she didn't volunteer on her own, someone (her parents, a teacher, one of the cops, etc.) would've told her to.

 

There are also a ton of other little details that I want to fit into this fic, so wish me luck!

Not to mention that SBS (or other network awards) have to take the drama's popularity into consideration when giving out awards. I'm not sure whether Do You Like Brahms? fared better among audiences in comparison with Alice, but it's a factor that I'd need to consider when thinking about how the Top Excellence Award played out. Both Park Eun Bin and Kim Hee Sun are experienced actresses with long resumes - even though, just by coincidence, I haven't watched any of Park Eun Bin's dramas - so I don't think their respective popularity was a big factor here.

 

As for JW, it does look like the reason why he didn't win Top Excellence was simply because he was already slated for the Producer's Award - not because of anything to do with his popularity in comparison with other nominees.

I have to say, after seeing snippets of this (still haven't had time to watch the full episode) and Healing Camp, I really do think Seo Jang Hoon and JW just mesh together really well. Like, Jang Hoon just has this way of shifting the focus to JW's positive attributes, and the part when he guessed that JW gave Park Jun Myun a laminated leaf was adorable :blush:

Yeah, watching that scene on YouTube without any subs or prior context (i.e. without recognizing either the Korean words for "dream" or "gift") was like.... :surprisedwut: 

 

 

By the way, I also love JW's reactions during that story - because on the one hand, he's smiling because he understands the humour and good intent behind it (since, apparently, there's an association between poop and good luck in Korea that everyone knows about), but on the other hand, he looks just a bit weirded out like, "Wait - you had a dream about me doing what???" (It's most visible during Lee Su Geun's guess about fifty seconds into the clip.)

Yeah, I thought that might be the answer since it matches with Joo won's personality and Seo Jang Hoon always gets the right answers, most of the times

I was confused as well despite subs, so it is safe to say that her question was toughest to guess out all.

I'm not familiar with Knowing Bros or the dynamic between the hosts in general (can you tell I seldom watch variety shows unless JW guests on them? :P), but I did think the laminated leaf was in line with JW's personality. Or, if nothing else, the impression of him that Seo Jang Hoon would have gotten from Healing Camp.

 

Speaking of which, I finally did get around to watching the whole show! :partyblob: It was a lot of fun, but I also have some general observations (which I'll keep JW-related for the purposes of this forum):

 

1. I think that this show has the best format for JW's personality so far. In particular, I find that the first "period", with its focus on having the guests share anecdotes about themselves in response to a series of prompts (e.g. "Friendships", "Strengths", etc.) made Knowing Bros feel less like a game show and more like a talk show - and I already knew that JW was comfortable on those. Also, the fact that all six of the bros are seasoned comedians who already know and riff off of each other really well means that, in the beginning - when he might still be a bit shy - JW can just throw out a small tidbit (e.g. the story about running into Seo Jang Hoon at a Chinese restaurant) and everyone else will be able to build it up into an entire gag. By the time we get to the more overtly comical second half, JW's already warmed up and become familiar with the whole group - and again, the onus isn't on him to maintain the comedy to begin with.

 

2. I do have to say, though, that the way JW riffed with Kang Ho Dong in his intro was spot-on. Okay, I'm sure that the general premise (i.e. that the Ghost cast members were visiting from the performing arts high school next door) as well as their actual entrance was scripted. But Kang Ho Dong is such a seasoned comedian that I do believe his response about seeing the arts students acting weird in the schoolyard was improvised - and JW just picked up on it immediately and went, "Oh, that? Yeah, we were rehearsing for Ghost." He also riffed off Hee Chul really well, too :) 

 

3. I really should give Lee Su Geun's friendship with JW more credit. I'd pointed out before on this forum that Lee Su Geun's MCing/hosting style wasn't really my thing personally (he reminded me of how variety shows/reality shows were hosted in Hong Kong, and those have always come across to me as way too extra :P). So, when I watched 1N2D, I tended to focus more on JW's relationships with the other hyungs (especially Sung Si Kyung). However, seeing Lee Su Geun falling back into all his old habits from working with JW on 1N2D was such a throwback for me - and it was adorable! :love: I loved how he would try to point out to the others whenever JW was about to do or say something interesting (like, I think he was the one who went, "Guys, Joo Won's dancing" off-screen when "Any Song" came on?), and how he vouched for and added to JW's stories in the first half. However, my favourite has to be when we could hear him say, "Joo Won-ie, enjoy the food!" during the ramyeon scene. Like, how long has it been since I've heard anyone call him "Joo Won-ie"??? That was such a mainstay from 1N2D and I...I just can't....:fullofhearts:

 

4. JW may not be book smart, but he's clever. Most fans know of his abysmal record doing trivia quizzes from 1N2D ("Joo Rodin", anybody?), and the same more or less holds true here. However, the "Amor Fati" question also shows just how intelligent he actually is - he recognized that "amor" was "love", and actually took a really reasonable educated guess on "fati" (which he thought was "party", because "f" and "p" sound similar in Korean). Same with IVY's emergency room question: once he realized that the humour was in the irony behind what she'd eaten to have an allergic reaction, he was the first to figure out that it had to be a food item that was related to seafood but that didn't actually contain any seafood - hence the "conch shaped crackers".

 

5. JW did way better on the clay modeling game than I thought he would. Again, this comes back to the "highly intelligent, but not necessarily book smart" thing. He was consistently really quick to start his team on the right foot (pun intended).

 

6. Epic dancing skills, as always. I know that, realistically, he's not idol level - nor would I expect him to be. But his strength as a dancer (besides his generally strong technique and sense of rhythm) is that he just goes for it, regardless of whether it looks stupid. I can see that several of the bros tend to hold back more, but that doesn't necessarily mean they can't dance: they might just be shy about it.

 

7. If I recall correctly, the "Puppy" nickname was given to him by Choi Kang Hee. Just dropping this in because I guess it means they are still friends :) 

 

8. JW's anecdote about going to the doctor after starring in both Good Doctor and Yong Pal was awesome. lol - While it's true that he learned enough from Good Doctor to be able to act out the first-aid and surgical procedures himself in Yong Pal (as opposed to using a hand double), that doesn't mean he understood what it all meant :P Still, the mental image of his doctor going, "So, Joo Won-ssi, as you probably already know..." and him going, "Sorry, what???" is awesome.

Wow! Great observation, I totally forgot about this "Puppy" nickname.

Yup, same here. I though Lee Su Geun will be silent or more reserved just like he was with other 2D1N members when they came to the show. But, it seems like he does cherish his bong with Joo won and did everything in his capacity to give give him more screen time just he did back in 2D1N ,and that Bridal Mask and Bride fled analogy was too good:joy:. You forgot to mention the entrance scene where joo won slammed the door so hard that IVY got scared.

50 minutes ago, kittyna said:

Yeah, only 2D1N friends call him like that. Most of the time I hear people calling him Joo Won-shhi.

I was surprised with his skill in clay molding, perhaps he took some classes in pottery, since lot of celebrities and artist pick up such kind of skills to improve their acting skills. Also, I did not expect him to win the grand prize, since his track record in 2D1N is not good at winning quizzes.

Well, most of the points he won were from decidedly non-quiz items (the ET dance) or things that, given his strong interest in music, I'd expect him to be good at (remembering song lyrics). 

 

What's really funny is all the times he ends up chatting with Park Jun Myun in the background: "I didn't know that", "I just guessed", etc. :lol:

 

Oh, and another funny moment from that segment that I forgot to mention:

 

9. JW's pouty face when the children's song cut off so abruptly while he was dancing. His face was like, "Aw, but I was just getting into it!" and I'm like, "Dude - you're 33!!!" :loolz: Maybe the song had sentimental value for him or something :D

 

1 hour ago, kireeti2 said:

That's because "ssi" is the neutral/formal suffix to add to someone's name, so it's the one that's bound to appear in the widest range of contexts. 

 

In more casual speech between friends or family, the most common suffix is "ah" or "yah" (e.g. "Joo Won-ah"). It's only used for people who are either close in age as you or younger than you, though - older friends are addressed by "Hyung", "Noona", "Oppa", or "Eonnie". 

 

"ie", though, is not just informal, but also, like, super affectionate or cutesy. I've only heard it being used in a handful of dramas, and its use seems to have as much to do with the personalities of the people in the relationship as it does the overall dynamic. In essence, it's interchangeable with "ah"/"yah", so if you use "ie", you're trying to make a point that you think the person you're addressing is just so darn cute you want to squeeze them.

 

(Which, to be fair, is how JW's hyungs on 1N2D thought of him most of the time.)

It was something about her calling him "Puppy" and him calling her "Kang-jjang" (the latter of which actually happens when she guests on 1N2D), but I could be wrong about whether she started it or if she picked up a nickname someone else used already. I just know I first heard of the nickname in relation to Level 7 Civil Servant.

I do think it's tied to his acting, though - I remember that he was really good at charades on 1N2D as well. So I think it's a combination of being generally dextrous with his hands, and having a good sense of how to visually represent a saying or idea.

I think he still remembers that that's what JW needed to open up more on 1N2D, so he just naturally slipped back into that habit.

 

Changing the subject for a bit: JW's shoes from the SBS Drama Awards - Jimmy Choos??? Dang....

After you mentioned it I re-watched it and indeed he did made the pouted face when the music stopped without warning. And also, is it me or did the editor tried to give more shots of joo won. Like, there were more shots of Joo won's reaction than the other 2 guests, or it can be that I only noticed Joo won's reaction more than other two guests.

Oh! I use to think "SSI" was used to address someone informally, since lot of actor who are younger than Joo won use to address him as "Joo Won-ssi" (like Bae-Suzy in 2012 KBS AWARDS and Kim Young-Jung in 2020 SBS AWARDS and UEE use to address him as Joo won-ssi as well. I seldom heard young actress calling him OPPA, is it because he is strict ? )

I noticed that, too, and it's generally a thing whenever JW is on a variety show with others (i.e. even 1N2D did this a lot). What it is is that JW doesn't say much, but he is actually a very expressive person when it comes to body language or non-verbal communication. So, say, on 1N2D, when someone makes a silly mistake during a game, the others might be shouting or teasing the member who messed up, but JW might just be laughing - and the camera would need to focus on him for viewers to see that he reacted at all. ;) Or, in the first half of the season, Sung Si Kyung might start bickering with Bird PD (which happened, like, a lot), and the hyungs might join in with their comments, but JW might just be shown nodding along (if he agrees) or making his confused pouty face (if he disagrees).

 

Now that I think about it, Lee Su Geun was one of the first to pick up on this on 1N2D, so he started proactively asking JW for his opinion if he's been quiet for a while - and with his cute facial expressions, usually a nod or shake of the head from JW was enough. lol - And then (if it was on a point of contention with Bird PD), the hyungs would all launch into this spiel of "See? Even Joo Won-ie thinks this - so now you've gotta listen to us!" :lol:

 

However, in terms of any variety show appearances for Ghost, I think the focus on JW may just be due to his star power in comparison with his castmates. ;)

I seldom heard young actress calling him OPPA, is it because he is strict ? )

 

Well, "ssi" is not the most formal, because it implies that you're at least on a first name basis ;) The most formal would be using some sort of title without a name (e.g. "Sunbaenim") instead.

 

But generally speaking, the situation matters just as much as the relationship. So in really public settings like interviews, awards shows, etc., everyone sort of defaults to using "ssi", even if they'd use something else in private. If you're looking for terms of address that reflect actual relationships, it's better to look to behind-the-scenes footage, or footage of the main cast in a variety show (as opposed to any guests).

 

Also, I'm not sure if this is true, but my guess is that in Korea, it's less common for actresses to address their guy friends as "Oppa", because that's also how girls usually address their boyfriends.

 

But one thing I do know: JW is far quicker to use informal terms of address than most. He consistently refers to people he's worked with by "Hyung" and "Noona" if they're older. He did use "Sunbae" more often earlier in his career, but as he's gotten to know more people in the industry, it looks like he mostly reserves those for people way older than him now.

Yeah, I've noticed that, too.

 

One quick note about "ie" that I forgot to include earlier. As a direct term of address (i.e. you use it for the person you're speaking to), it's relatively uncommon. However, it does show up a ton as the way you mention someone to a third party (which make up the vast majority of the "Joo Won-ie"s you hear on Knowing Bros).

Well, I also heard that "Oppa" is also used to address older brother by younger girls, if they are siblings. And in some variety shows I heard that Younger female artists addressing older artist as "Oppa"(And yeah, women also use this word to address their boyfriends as well). So, I think female artist use this word to address the older male artists if they are close or know them personally. So, just like "Noona", "Oppa" also as multiple meaning depending on the relationship

Yes, it does have multiple meanings - but out of all the terms of address, I do feel like "Oppa" is the one most likely to inadvertently cause misunderstandings or confusion. So it really depends on the specific people involved, their relationship dynamic, and what they're comfortable with saying given the context they're in.

 

Okay, so it turns out that I'm really enjoying releasing these little previews/snippets of my upcoming Alice fic, so here's another one. The theme: Do Yeon's attempt at breaking the ice goes just about as well as you think it will :P 

 

Spoiler

Thinking it would help to pass the time, as well as giving us a chance to know each other, I try to chat with him as we work.

 

“So, I’ve heard that you’re top in your class.”

 

“I guess.”

 

“Is that why you don’t go to study hall? Because you’re already good for the exams?”

 

“Ani.”

 

“Then why?”

 

“I concentrate better at home. It’s quieter.”

 

“I see….So, have you thought about university yet? Where do you wanna apply to?”

 

“I don’t know.”

 

“Jinjja? You have no idea at all?”

 

“Mm.”

 

This is when he should ask me the same question back – at which point I will say something about Eomma wanting me to go to a SKY university and my not really caring so long as I can get into communication studies or journalism somewhere – but he simply lapses back into silence. It stretches on for so long that I eventually stop painting and round on him.

 

“Ya, Park Jin Gyeom! Is this how you always hang out with people? When someone asks you something, you’re supposed to give them a chance to share by asking them back. You do know that, right?”

 

“Ara,” he answers, not even stopping from his painting to look at me. “But why should I?”

 

I bite back an exasperated curse. “Ya, Park Jin–”

 

“As you said, people share about themselves in the hope that the person they’re speaking to will agree, which both creates an emotional connection and allows the first person to believe the other person cares what they think. But, like I said before, I don’t care what people think about me.”

 

I toss my head, placing one hand on my hip. “Are you just saying that because you’re trying to look cool, or because you really actually don’t care?”

 

“Caring what people think is only possible when you have feelings that can be hurt – and I don’t.”

 

My jaw drops. Did...did he just say....

 

“Wait, what?”

 

“Alexithymia,” he says bluntly. “A neurological impairment that limits my ability to feel, recognize, or express emotions.”

 

“But…but everyone feels emotions, don’t they?” I ask. “That’s what makes us human!” I let out a gasp as a sudden terrifying thought comes to me. “Did…did you have an accident or something?” I gesture towards my head with my left hand. “You know, something that could have hurt your head?”

 

“Ani,” he answers. “Eomma tells me I was born with it.”

 

He points out the paint that’s already dripped off my roller onto the ground, prompting me to talk and work at the same time. A quick glance over to his side shows that he’s very nearly done, but as I start back up again on my side, I can’t seem to focus on the wall in front of me.

 

This is weird. This is all so incredibly freaking weird. Everything I had thought was strange or off about him now comes to mind: his empty stares from the back of the classroom, his aloof silences, his choice to spend breaks studying rather than hanging out with friends…even what he says now about not caring what people think.

 

Park Jin Gyeom’s not a psychopath; he’s disabled. Or, at least that’s what it sounds like. It’s proof that he’s not a bad person like everyone says he is, but….

 

“That sucks.”

 

Yep, trying to maintain a conversation with teenage Park Jin Gyeom is just.... :headbang:

 

Finally, a spur of the moment mid-week interactive. Long story short, I may have posed a Sorting Hat Challenge to you guys before, but I actually grew up as a fan of a different fantasy franchise: Lord of the Rings. It was all a long time ago, but I recently stumbled across this video that presented 12 different characters from the film adaptations as representatives of distinct personality types (in Spoilers for not being directly JW-related):

 

Spoiler

 

 

So, here's my question to you guys: which character from JW's dramas do you think best fits each of these 12 character types?

 

Note: You can use any characters (main, supporting, etc.) for this - in fact, my guess is that you'll have to ;) Also, considering the massive gender imbalance in LOTR's cast of characters (mostly because the original books are high fantasy literature from the 1940s/1950s), just ignore gender for this. You can pick a JW drama girl to match with a male LOTR character, or vice-versa.

 

Once again, no right or wrong answers - so feel free to go nuts :gangnamstyle:

It is like the conversation he had with Detective Go in the restaurant  but this conversation is much longer and more fun to read

In the beginning I was also confused as well, like, the girlfriends in the Kdrama use to address their boyfriends as "Oppa" and they use to address their elder brothers as "Oppa" as well. But later I got to know that it had multiple meaning and like you said it depends on the relationship. It did came as a shock to me that they were few words which were exclusive for men and women to address other men and women according to their age and gender.

Celebrating the return of Ghost!

I think this is the first time they released this performance video. Earlier they use to post this scene's rehearsal video, and I can clearly see lot of difference between rehearsal performance and actual performance, the actual performance is electrifying, no wonder "Ghost" has been such a big hit. :blush:

Joo Won Joined the campaign for Unicef Team along with MC Yoo Jae Seok, Rhythmic Gymnast Son Yeon Jae and many others.

 

 

The 'UNICEF Team' is a team that aims to protect children around the world in danger and anyone can become the 'UNICEF Team'. The Korean Committee for UNICEF is running this campaign with celebrities who deliver positive energy to appeal for more campaign participation.

 

There's also a 15 sec version where Joo Won is delivering another line:

 

 

A fan noticed that he's wearing the same attire from KBS interview Room of Memory which is probably filmed in November 2020. So this was probably taken from that time.

 

Good to see our Joo Won promoting good cause. :heartxoxo:

A fan noticed that he's wearing the same attire from KBS interview Room of Memory which is probably filmed in November 2020. So this was probably taken from that time.

 

Yeah, I noticed that, too - it's one of my favourites out of JW's recent outfits :) I also sometimes personally refer to it as his "Park Jin Gyeom" look because it's totally something I can see the character wearing as well.

 

By the way, someone made this and posted it on Instagram: K-drama actors' weights in kilograms. To be fair, I don't think this is 100% accurate - if for no other reason than that people's weights fluctuate constantly within a certain range - but just as an estimate, I did notice that JW post-enlistment wound up being one of the bigger guys on this list. That really surprised me, to be honest.

 

Finally, this isn't entirely JW-related, but is still really cool. You guys remember the behind-the-scenes photos from JW's makeup process to become the old Jin Gyeom/the Teacher in Alice, right?

Well, I recently stumbled across this video on YouTube that shows the actual process of making the silicon masks and latex makeup the actors (like JW in Alice) would wear. So I just thought I'd share it as a fun behind-the-scenes look at what that looks like:

Thanks for the heads-up! About time the veterans got some love! :approves:

 

I wrote more about my choices on the actual poll forum itself, but for now, suffice it to say that this is the sort of thing I want for JW in the future. 10 or 20 years from now, I want him to be a respected veteran actor who's known for his range and acting chops, so...fighting, oppa!

 

Also, new Instagram update - Looks like he's back at it with the fluffy sherpa coats ;)

Yup, same here. Actually now is the time for joo won to take the roles with different style and the ones which will make use of his acting potential, and by choosing the Alice drama, he made it clear that from now on wards he will take different and diverse roles. And also, I want him to take antagonist roles as well, since he does plays those roles pretty well and it would waste to use his variety of talents at his disposal.

lol - Basically, more Evil!Jin Gyeom or Evil!Kang To type action, even if it ends up total nightmare fuel for us :naughty::skull: Hey, if he can do it, he might as well flaunt it, right? ;)
