SPARTACE COUPLE KimJongkook-SongJiHyo

Recommended Posts

Question: what do y'all think of the 9th anniversary fanmeet?

 

I'm a little puzzled as to why they're doing it for the 9 year when usually an event like this makes more sense for the 10 year anniversary. It could be that they have something else planned for the 10 year, but I think more likely explanation is either:

 

a) They don't plan on having a 10 year anniversary. Ignoring the possibility of a Season 2, the show does have to end at some point. People have been saying for years that the cast members (especially JSJ) aren't young, but despite this, the show has kept going and the cast has kept entertaining. But what people are saying is true, eventually the cast's ages (and accumulated injuries) are going to prevent them from doing the show. It is possible, and I wouldn't be surprised, if SBS tried to make a Season 2 of RM with some of the younger members, but I don't think it'd have the same following and would be the same show only in name.

 

or

 

b) They don't plan on having the current cast at the 10 year anniversary and therefore want to have the fanmeet now. I don't think YSC and JSM are leaving any time soon, and because they haven't been part of RM since day one, I don't think their departure would cause the fanmeet to be held a year early. If some of the original cast, however, planned to leave at the end of this year (for example, JSJ due to age, spartace due to marriage, etc.), then I could see them wanting to hold a fanmeet that would include the cast. However, I think this is the less likely explanation, because I remember the backlash KJK and SJH got when SBS first tried to pass their firing off as them quitting, I don't think they would leave the show before it's ending. 

 

Also, I know a lot of fans claim that SJH is the reason spartace hasn't gotten married yet (e.g. KJK really wants to get married but SJH wants to continue her career), but I disagree with this. I do think KJK wants to get married, but I don;t think he's a desperate as RM and fans portray him. Having one person wanting to get married and the other constantly refusing is not a long-term sustainable relationship. There's a reason you should check with a person in the very early stages of the relationship on their feelings about marriage and when they're looking to get married - it's a very core part of any romantic relationship. So, I think they both have made the decision to put their careers and RM ahead of getting married. I think, to them, being a public couple meant leaving RM,

 

Also, for those worried about the disappearance of the spartace love line, I wouldn't be too concerned. I think spartace exists as a love line to prepare the audience and not to make money or garner ratings the way MC was. Side Note: I always laugh when I see comments claiming that the spartace love line came out of nowhere. KJK and SJH have been called a perfect match during the beginning of the year fortune-telling for years now, and told by the cast members to date. The fact there have been rumors about them getting married and that they have such a big following before now shows that this hasn't come out of nowhere at all. Spartace usually gets focus at the beginning of each year for years now, and I think it has to do with RM not being sure when it'll end but wanting to prepare the audience for spartace. For instance, after the Firing Scandal and everyone thought RM was ending, they built up spartace but as soon as they decided not to end the show, spartace disappeared into the void and KJK was given a new love line. For years now, after KG left, we get hints of spartace and teasing for the rest of the cast, only for it to disappear. So I think the point of starting a spartace love line was to lay down the possibility of spartace, not to turn it into the next MC.

 

Okay, so those were my random thoughts for the moment lol. Let me know what y'all think!

 one of many reasons why i love our SA

 

@linzer03

there are many possibilties behind the reasoning for the SK FM. you've mentioned two of them and i totally agree with you.

you just cannot fool age. 

RM will end sooner or later. but making it to season 2 with mostly younger and new casts is not a good idea. FO season 2 would be a good example.

but maybe, and just maybe, they're making SK FM to gain more popularity in SK ? 

RM is very famous abroad, but not that much in SK.

@linzer03 I've been reading some fan theories about this whole SK FM thing. It is suspicious that they're doing it for year 9 instead of year 10.

 

To me, sadly, the theory that makes the most sense is that RM is may be ending soon. I've read that rm is not as popular in SK as it is internationally and its ratings have never really recovered from KG leaving and the firing drama. That would explain why their SK FM is free and loaded with special guests while the international FMs have been expensive and just the rm members are involved.

 

If true, it would be sad to see rm end and no longer have a place where we can see SA on a weekly basis, but I do think the show is past its peak now. And it would open the cast up for more opportunities (and of course, as a delulu shipper, the SA implications this brings).

@heynell @Adines Nugraha What are some of the other theories?

 

The theory that they're trying to boost popularity is interesting, but it seems odd then that they're doing this now when the ratings have been low for years (has a too little, too late feeling). Also, i checked the RM wiki link, which lists the ratings, and actually the RM ratings in SK went up after the addition of JSM and YSC, but then dropped back down near what it was before in end of 2016-2017 this year (by which I mean the ratings fall in the 6-7% range this year rather than the 6-8% range of last year).

 

It's the international fanbase that has kept RM alive for 9 years. Right when the Firing Scandal was going on, a Business Insider article came out that listed Running Man as #9 in the world's most watched shows of 2016 and the only non-US show in the top 10 link, and I think that actually played a role in helping to save RM. I guess it's possible that RM wants the 10 year anniversary to be for the international fans (e.g. one last Race Start) and is therefore doing something in SK now, but I see the SK show as more of a finale.

 

Sorry, just throwing out some thoughts.

 

I just hope that before RM ends, we get a coupe episodes with spartace as an open couple. I'm still waiting for their LA couples episode.

I'm such a big fan of both of them, and this video makes me proud. Honestly, all the RM cast seem like good, down-to-earth people that while none of them are perfect, they do their best for their friends, family, and fans.

Speaking of ratings.. actually, other than the main ratings, there’s also this ‘2049 viewers ratings’ which is important too in term of viewers ratings. i think it has something to do with advertising matter. As far as i know, RM has been maintaining it’s top spot in the ‘2049 viewers ratings’. RM kept it's top spot and was dominating naver real time search due to last Sunday episode (461).

 

here's just as an example:

(cr. soompi)

Cmiiw but not long ago, i read on SA naver cafe, someone mentioned that she/he feels SA would not be able to get married as along as RM is still exist. She/he also said that because RM is popular these days. You guys still remember back to when RM was delayed due to president Donald Trump’s visit to SK? I did check naver that day, apparently RM was trending no. 1 on real time search and kept trending for the next 2 days. Basically, knets were complaining and some were also angry to SBS why they had to delay RM. So yeah it’s kinda confusing though...

yup, it's really confusing......

well, whatever that is, it's just a matter of "when" and not "if"

we just have to enjoy watching RM while we can, right ? :D

unless our SA have another plan to do a show together, RM is our only hope

SJH acts so cute when she teases KJK like this. It reminds me a bit of ep 446. I don't think she acts quite the same with the other members. She automatically slips into a cute voice with him e.g. ep 215 when she says "It's mine" and ep 249 when she's trying to complete the mission so she can eat jjajangmyeon. (There are other instances, I'm just too lazy to find them right now.) I can't really remember her using such a cute voice with the other members. If she has used it, certainly not as often.

RM Eps 462

 

- Opening :

1. This filming confirm is 2nd July, 2019. After Pohang Event.

2. LOL . I love KJK's outfit. Really relax like in his home, his gym, his studio (YJS teasing KJK's outfit like this studio is KJK's).

3. SJH wearing glasses always cuter. Love it.

4. Ok, maybe this is just coincidental, but SJH's shoes auto reminded me to Fan Meeting around 2014, at that time SA have a couple shoes (black) with the same model.

 

- Practice Singing :

1. When SJH's turn to practice sing a song, SJH always cute about this case . KJK seems enjoying her singing & as usual, KJK didn't teasing her weakness, & KJK support her indirectly said : you're on the show to make people laugh. So, it's all good now.

2. When KJK's turn to practice sing a song, as always, KJK's voice make me melted.

3. As always, KJK teasing SJH when the songwriters said : SJH / JSM will sing a song that part.

KJK : Have you heard Ji Hyo sing ?

SJH : slush &her hand to her mouth while smile.

4. KJK said to HH this is unnatural when HH try to teasing KJK's outfit really reminded me when the rest of members esp HH try to teasing SA & KJK said this is unnatural. So, it means for KJK, the rest of members actually looking KJK's outfit like that is standard nothing special & the same case when SA doing lovely dovely couple in front of the rest of members, actually that's usual & always doing like that.

5. When SJH confess that new song make feel calm & then KJK said : There she goes lying again.

SJH : What do you mean ?

KJK really know well SJH so much as always.

6. Filming end up for that day.

 

- Opening :

2. KJK got IV in his hand.

3. When the rest of members seems to clarification & make us make sure SJH dancing & singing isn't halfhearted, when SJH dancing & singing she is sweating too much & KJK acknowledge it, agree SJH can;t dancing & singing well but she is try so hard & doing the best.

4. They have scene about KJK didn't married yet because JSJ had appeared in MUD & talking about KJK didn't married yet. And yes, it's confirm KJK didn't like go on blind dates & prefer choose natural is the best way.

YJS : He has to open up a little more. But he doesn't.

Myself really curious about this statement. It will be deep conversation about this statement but I just ignored it. I will believed what I;m believed. And I'm believed this is just for the show & nothing to be serious about KJK's love life. I mean, so far I'm sure SA dating in real life.

 

Games 1 :

1. SA sitting side by side.

2. LOL. SJH ordered Pyongyang Naengmyeon & KJK ordered Naengmyeon reminded me to RM Eps 439. I love when SA have a same thinking about this.

3. 00:28:18 - 00:28:22 : KJK looking at SJH directly.

4. 00:28:59 : SA looking toward each other & smile & laugh together. Seems SJH talking about something funny & then KJK laughing also.

5. 00:30:26 KJK's hand in SJH's pillow. KJK seems want to know what material it is because I looked twice KJK grab that pillow.

6. SJH laugh so hard when KJK pulling out LKS's hair.

7. 00:38:47 : When camera zoom in SJH's face, TINY Oppa Name is clear to look . LOL.

8. When SJH turns get the penalty, SJH wins & KJK said : Why are you trying so hard ? You'll have to go through me anyway.

9. When YJS & JSJ arguing who will win in this games. JSJ as always SJH's appa, & said she will wins, because she is SJH. & YJS as always KJK's appa, & said KJK. LOL . I love this arguing even just for a few seconds.

10. LOL. In the end, only the trio KJK SJH HH playing that games. I love this scene they're enjoying & lucky enough.

11. When SJH turns the games, SJH's dice no 4 number, it means she lost. KJK : this is unbelievable. (KJK's reaction seems surprised).

12. KJK support SJH : Ji Hyo can do it. (SJH's hair get pulled out by HH). SJH lost.

13. KJK : My mind is at ease now that Ji Hyo is out.

IMO --> KJK really worried SJH still win because it will be hurt for SJH. And it's must be awkward SJH pulling KJK's out, she always worried about KJK. LOL.

14. When KJK lost & will pulling his out by HH, KJK said : Sorry for being boring but I can't feel pain. SJH : 7 seconds. & KJK win.

KJK get a choose mystery card. KJK mystery card Someone else eats for 10 seconds with my cards. KJK choose HH.

 

Games 2 :

1. SA sitting side by side.

2. 00:50:33 : SJH try to make KJK laugh by SJH &YSC 's mix face. LOL. KJK avert his eyes but actually he want laugh just hold on.

 IMO --> LOL. SJH know really well make KJK laugh. And I'm so curious why that picture.

3. 00:50:41 : KJK hold SJH's hand. SA in their won world.

4. 00:50:47 - 00:50:48: SJH move became in front of KJK & still make KJK laugh & KJK still hold SJH's hand. SA still in their world.

5. 00:50:59 : SA still in ther world when the others focus to YJS & LKS changes the funny costume.

6. 00:51:57 : Camera just focus to SA plus zoom in. SJH look at KJK directly with smile.

7. 00:52:13 : SA take a picture JSJ with a funny costume.

8. 00:52:35 - 00:53:03 : SJH try again to make KJK laugh. Camera just focus to SA. SJH kicking KJK (reminded me to RM Eps Yokohama Eps. LOL. SJH really love to kicking KJK's pants). SJH make a honey punch to KJK with a cute face. 

9. 00:52:47 : KJK make a movement, KJK to SJH want to make a honey punch / something like that for jokes but didn't touch yet, SJH get a slip & falling down. SJH : Ouch while laughing, KJK looking at her while want to laugh but hold on.

10. This is a proves, KJK didn;t like when the woman try to show off her sensitive. Reminded me how SJH's process time by time from KJK always nagging & worrying about her pride until finally SJH make her body look more polite. I'm glad it.

 

Games 3 :

1. SA sitting side by side.

2. SA different team.

3. 01:03:03 : SJH's turns the games & KJK laugh so hard because she make mistakes.

KJK : Who said such a thing ? (while laughing so hard).

4. 01:04:34 : Again, SJH's turns the games & she is wrong again & make KJK laugh so hard again.

KJK run to SJH & said : Do you have a hearing problem ?

SJH : No.

KJK : What's wrong with her hearing ?

5. LOL. I looked the scene when KJK & JSM win the paper rock scissor, KJK want to high five but hold on. That's very clear, KJK hold on.

IMO --> Yes, SA always high five even interlock finger for no doubt & make me feels warm heart & love it to looking.

6. I noticed, after the games end, SA didn't sitting sid eby side but after that SA changes the sit became sitting isde by side again.

 

- Games 4 :

1. SA different team.

2. 01:13:42 : KJK spin SJH who is sitting in the chair.

3. 01:14:27 : KJK's reaction when SJH's tunr the games just so cute. KJK hide in YJS's back . LOL. And always looking at SJH & pay attention to her. esp 01:14:30 when KJK's eye wide open. SJH win' Everyone incl SJH amazed with SJH.

4. After games, SA sitting side by side again.

5. HH succeed for a special mission (special mission is the same with JSM), HH choose SJH for eating together. (HH only can choose 1 member for his team for eating with him).

6. After eating, SA sitting side by side again.
