@Biology Lesson Piljoo definitely was sensual with almost everyone except Moo Hyun lol. I saw him as a vampire sometimes, using power of seduction to persuade his prey. He definitely used it with Mal Ran, and to me it was all the time, with the hand touching and kissing and those stares. The drama created all those “have they done it or not?” moments too, purposely vague just to mess with people’s minds. So the audience may chose to believe that Piljoo is a virgin or they may choose to believe he is not. It all depends on how far you think Piljoo was willing to go for his revenge (but then I suppose, the “romantic” moment with Mal Ran prior to the big reveal would have been anti climactic, if they had actually has been lovers) still, there is room for fantasizing about it and that’s these creators aim for.

The writer for MF is very smart in the way she writes. Makes us wonder if PJ and MR had slept together or not. Some of us believe no. Others believe yes. 

 

I would like to believe no but when PJ said he knows her top to bottom or inside out, can't remember which one now, usually when you say that to someone is an indication that they have had sex. CONFUSE confuse confuse! 

 

Let me be naughty here - I read a comment on JH horse riding in Friends in Croatia, the writer wrote, see the way JH rides his horse, his wife is 1 lucky lady. :wub: aha hahaha....

 Every time he whispered threats on her ear was uffff

Is it a JH thing? He seem to like whispering at people ear. I feel so .......I would laugh crazy if I am Mal Ran. Or I would melt instantly. :wub:

@budgerie Kdrama is not even subtle with the homo-erotism sometimes. They are doing it with the two boys in My Country too (Even your blade is affectionate? Hello?) And Bangwon’s “He is my man” etc Of course they do all these

things in a way that the audience may choose to ignore it completely.

Really I don't feel any thing extraordinary. I just feel bromance. As for "he is my man" sounds common to me because in C period drama - you hear this quite often 他是我的人.....(he is my man). :sweat_smile:

The first half of the drama is like a romcom - sageuk. Although his look isn’t good at first, it improves later. 

I like that drama for its heart fluttering moments. It is the drama to watch when I missed him as Lee Gun. But I agree that his look isn't good at first. I always feel it is because his makeup artist used too dark a foundation colour for him. He has beautiful fair skin tone.

I like his look! I like him with hair half tied up. Moustache. A little untidy looking.....but when he acted loud or act funny, it was a resemblance of Li Gun. 

 

Am I the only one who likes Honey Lee in this drama? B)

His look greatly improved. The dark foundation and bad lighting on set scenes were the problem. 

 

I love Honey Lee in general. I find her stunning in historical look. I loved her more in the drama Rebel though.

You don’t but many do and that’s the point. To leave things subtle and tell the actual story but trigger people’s fantasy (for whomever wants to go with it) I find it actually amusing, the whole thing. I saw a fanart of Banghwi as a couple and I was like Lol! People are funny

It also seems to be part of Korean idol culture. Korean male idols often provide homoerotic fanservice though I never bothered to think much about it except that it looked super akward. So preference for flowery(girly) looks among Korean male idols can also be deliberate?

Now you've pointed out I'm forced to see Money Flower and bunch of other Korean dramas in totally new light. I used to think that all of those interactions were 'innocent' probably because in my culture it's completely OK to show too much affection towards same sex friends and I think same is also true for Korean culture.

Nah! There’s affection and affection. The way Bucheon and Piljoo ate those apples has nothing to do with “affection”. It was homo-erotic innuendo and it was damn blatant. Also they way Bucheon would stare at Piljoo. WOL Poong - Chilsung bromance or Lee Gun - Sec Tak bromance was much more like the playful friendly banter you refer to (though there was butt smacking from Lee Gun and Sec Tak haha!) Im ok with all kinds of fantasies and pairings imagined or insinuated as long as its consensual and not abusive, all is good with me :P 

 

But, yes, kpop idol culture exploits the flower boy concept to a fault and yet ironically, korean society is still pretty closed minded regarding LGBTQ community rights.

Haha I also had no feeling, not even bromance. I guess in general I am not a very 'feeling' type of person, when I watch dramas I am quite distant type.

Perhaps you and me are quite similar in our choice of drama. I am not "distant" because I rant alot but you don't usually rant. Usually I will rant about the plot. I hardly notice about men-men relationship or women-women relationship. I only pay attention to the man-woman relationship :sweat_smile: Maybe the writer wanted to show bromance but too much bromance here....hahaha.

This is the dilemma of a fan.  I'm also aware of his age, and know there'll come a time he'll gradually have to take on supporting role, or even lesser of him.  So I want to see him on screen now as much as possible, and treasure every appearance of him on screen.  Afterall,  I'm first attracted to him because of his screen presence and passionate acting, and of course his handsome face.

 

But I have to say, I'm proud of his supporting roles so far.  The impact he has created with the little screen time he has makes me glad that I'm his fan. 

You are so right! Treasure him as much as possible while he is still on screen. Some day when he decides to cut down his filming, we can always go back to his old drama to watch him.

But then you have people fantasizing about these and creating “ships” and creating fanfic and fanart based on those.

You are so right. Can't people just enjoy a drama without creating ships. Especially if the actor or actress is already married. This is so insensitive. It's like telling your spouse that he/she should be marrying someone else instead of you.

 

I happened to browse a drama trailer. Not Jang Hyuk. Already people are saying things like "they should be together in real life" "they are meant to be with each other" "he is looking at her like he is in love with her" "they should get married" and all those stuff. Don't you want to faint??!!

Yes I do! Absolutely cannot stand those shippers who ship every couple they see on screen. If everyone end up with their reel-life partners in every drama, wont all actors have multiple spouses by now?? Then all married actors got to quit acting?? They need to know that drama and real life are separate issues !!

 

Btw I need to rant some more, why no new stills today? Usually they have on Thursdays arrgh... I think JTBC has decided to focus more on promoting new upcoming dramas now.

Let's count. If JH ends up with every actress he acts with, how many "partners" by now? Every 6 months change partner. Lol. All these brainless fans! If JH dates every actress he acts with, he is not worth my time for me to hero worship him. :grimace:Hahaha! 

 

Oh. Afterall MC is already coming to a close. JTBC probably don't see the need anymore. So this year end this drama will be JTBC award or MBC award or what award? I hope Bang Won gets a good one.

I think there is no JTBC award haha. Usually cable dramas are just lumped under Korea Drama awards or Baeksang Awards I think.

I am such a bad fan. I don't bother if it is cable drama or weekend drama. Or I never knew what is the rating. Whether it is MBC or KBS or JTBC. I only put all my attention on JH and the drama. :expressionless:@The Reel Lifethan I hope he gets a Baeksang.

Another gripe I have with JTBC is that they release everything with no translation. I checked and I noticed that some of the videos JTBC uploads do have a translation! I'm so frustrated by this- I really want to know what is being said in the last BTS they released... :tears: Besides the Kimchi from nectarines comment... :)

Then this is another level of delusion or maybe the couple is aleardy rumored to be in a relationship.lols 

One advantage of following JH is that he can't be shipped and fans can breathe in peace. By the way I've never seen people shipping JH with anybody except Jang Nara that too only for a while. He doesn't do romantic dramas in the first place and his advancing age means he won't be doing anymore in the future. So we are safe. :D

I think those you see with subs are fans-translated. Anyone can add in subs to youtube if you understand the language.

 

And ok, I think they just released a new BTS !!

I don't know... the clips were really long clips from one of their shows, actually looked interesting... If it's fan translated- well, is there a Korean speaking fan that can come to the rescue?! :weary: I swear I'm going to learn Korean... so frustrating...
