I think that the best compromise they can reach is by both of them realising that their chosen professions can and actually have to complement each other in order for them to save as many people as possible.

But @melissala when I spoke about Shi-jin being forced to choose I was thinking of the Lt Gen asking him to give up being with Mo-yeon or else...but as @bebebisous33 just mentioned, this drama has so far done well avoiding cliches, so I can be hopeful that we will see him taking that picture with his dad, Mo-yeon and an absurdly beautiful set of children.

lol I think if that happened he'd be like... bye!  I really do hope the Lt. Gen gets over his man crush for SJ and realizes that DY is a great guy and would be a great son-in-law who is not going to harm his MJ's career in any way. 

And rewatching the episode, man some of the Viki comments seriously do not understand MY and really expected her to go fall all over him crying when SJ came out joking and making light of nearly dying.  She was really worried about him and said so herself, but she didn't like how he joked about it.  I totally like her "sourpuss" ways of being the adult in the relationship.  She balances out his more carefree attitude and adds a sense of seriousness and reality to their interactions.

Honestly, I don't care why SJK is being so stingy with talking about how it was to work with SHK, but I would just like her to get some well-deserved credit. The SJK craze is like a wall right now, and he COMPLETELY deserves all that praise.  And while I don't really expect the same public recognition that SJK is getting, it would be nice if at least her lead co-actor recognized the work and effort she put in publicly. I know for sure he does. I just want him to say it damn it >.< (if only so I can read it.) Am I being too selfish in that respect? lol

I do like that Jin Goo and Kim Ji Won at least are more willing to talk.  So at least there's that. 

 

 

I agree, it's not even a question of who deserves how much praise but usually co-stars attribute the success of the drama to each other. Like JIS and SHK during TWTWB - he would compliment her and then she would compliment him, it was just such a healthy process. But, I don't think it's because he's in a relationship because he could use the same tactic JIS did - compliment his co-star but also draw a clear line in the public's mind that you only view each other as friends and professionals.

Something must be up which we obviously have no clue about and we'll never get to know, but I believe that the atmosphere during the drama was in fact very friendly between all co-stars. I've read many accounts of the supporting cast members who have said lovely things about the work experience.

Even the time he was filming Nice Guy, his mention of Moon Chae Won was very scarce and when he did mention her, he made sure to mention her with Park Shi Yeon. Given that Song Joong Ki is skilled in the PR department, I usually take what he says with a grain of salt. Not that he’s a liar but we have to understand the nature of his career and this is likewise with all actors.

 

Ah, that's actually good to hear for me. Since I was actually hoping it was cuz he was just being too cautious, too professional, and careful with his words in public. 

I never doubted the quality of their personal and working relationship since I know they most likely do get along. I did see the secret photo a fan took of SJK, LKS, and JIS taking a pic with SHK's poster add and laughed cuz it was too cute. Plus, SHK would not post pictures of him and JG on her IG if they did not get along. 

But it's just a bit frustrating when his other peers are encouraging each other and he's pretty mum on the topic. I do understand he wants to prevent a scandal most likely in consideration for SHK (I mean she was getting so much heat on that article about on-screen couples that became real life couples and the comments were basically.. leave SJK alone! -.- just, really).  But I also think it's to manage his image since he is really booming right now. So whether it's his consideration or his management, I don't think it's a weird coincidence he's not saying very much is all. And i wish he would. And it's not cuz I ship them in real life. (If they date or don't date, I'd be happy either way). But because I feel like SHK deserves some acknowledgement and credit too. Even if it's not that big. It's still a kind thing to do. And I believe there are ways of expressing it while maintaining professionalism. But I also get that other people may read way too much into it and so he might be more likely to err on the side of caution. Kind of like, better safe than sorry type thing :/

Hmm you all have to remember how private Korean stars are. SHK has become very private over these years and SJK has as well. In Korea, the more private clean-cut image you have the more like-able you are. While in the USA and other places you can hug your costars and keep saying good things and post pics on IG in Korea it is tougher, especially when both are single and of the status that SHK has especially (she pretty much helped found the Hallyu). Ji Won and Jin Goo can post more stuff because he is married and has a son so no one will say anything. I know that these reasons suck but just because they are not "looking" close does not mean that they did not bond. 
I 100% believe that good chemistry cannot be created on-screen between two people who cannot get along off-screen. SJK probably just does not want to create any issues in the public's eyes for SHK so he doesn't comment much.

Don't stress so much and just enjoy watching the show! If you want to discuss more about them the Song Song couple thread is open as well :)

I agree. I think they all worked really well together. And the drama is evident of the good teamwork.

Whether something is up. OR NOTHING AT ALL. And it's just me. I have no problem acknowledging that ahaha

But I do think that it's important for co-stars to recognize each other, even if the public doesn't recognize them equally. It just seems like a good thing to do. And like you said, a healthy process. 

Oh wells.

Exactly!!!

REMINDER from moderator: About Song Song couple or SHK or SJK there are other threads for that!!

Please try to post something that has to do with the drama itself... not the actors or actresses!

Don't worry, I know where you're coming from - I asked the same questions to myself and then I realised SJK did this project despite the year 2014-2015 being the worst patch of SHK's career. If he was so supremely careful, Blossom and he would never have done this project once they knew SHK was associated with it. It's his return project, the stakes are extremely high for him , so I think that's proof that SJK would have had actually "wanted" to work opposite her. Maybe we could take some comfort in that?.

But, yes it would make me much more happier if he could vocalise what we know to be true. Things seem to be taking a turn for the better though, last few articles many of the popular comments were about SHK's performance. 

 

Moving on!. Why, exactly is MJ's dad coming to Uruk?.

Daniel mentions something about human trafficking, which made me think those young kids might be potential victims. I think KMY is going to get involved and that's how she gets caught by Argus's gang. When SJ comes to rescue her, then Argus puts 2 and 2 together and realises what is brewing between our main OTP . Because I don't think he really paid attention to her at the funeral.

Happy Friday my sunny chingus!!!

So, after watching episode 8 last night I am still floating on Cloud 9! In fact episode 8 was perfection when it comes to character and plot.

1) The DRAMA!!! OMG! Between the various rescues, aftershocks, folks missing, people dying, and our couples still trying to make leeway. This episode was edge of your seat drama from start to finish, and I loved every scintillating minute of it.

2) So many people cried foul when KMY patched up YSJ and did not run into his arms when he confessed to her yet again. I will admit, his confession was....WOW! "No matter what I did, work, drink, etc., I could not stop thinking about you!" *swoons* His honesty is a little scary but oh so sexy. But when he took her to the base to make a phone call and she called Manager Mo's wife to report his dying words. That just gutted me. Goodness, that was heavy. I understood why she wasn't feeling romantic when she was carrying such a heavy load. 

3) Onew's breakdown. To say these doctors got more than they bargained for when they got sent to volunteer in Urk is an understatement. I felt his fragility to that trauma. He's so young and he is about to be a father. So, when he found the survivor and tried to save him, then got hurt during the aftershocks, I understood his fear. Poor guy. I just hope he can rebound emotionally.

4) Dr. Song and Nurse Ha are too cute. It is funny that they have been working together for so long and haven't hooked up. These two brought some much needed amusement to an intense episode. I loved when Dr. Song got jealous when she and Nurse Choi were flirting with Daniel. And then when he ultimately decided to stay because she was staying. Yes, I love these people. Speaking of which, how honorable is it for them to give up their seats on a first class plane to patients who needed more advanced care? Just awesome!

5) Sergeant Seo and Kim Min Suk are just as intense as YSJ and KMY. When he had to run back into the building after the collapse, her worry was real. All she could do is hope and pray he came out safe. There is so much chemistry between them. He should've taken her up on that dance at the end, but it was quite funny when he ran like a bat of hell to get out of there.

6) The CROOK! Okay, we get it, he hid the diamonds and now the bad guys want them. But considering they had a major earthquake and aftershocks, his way of going about it was just silly. When he took it upon himself and got on that crane and started digging and making the situation with the survivor worse, I want to strangle him myself. But what sweet redemption when Sergeant Seo hauled off and punched the crap out of him! That was so sweet!

7) After all of the agony of our OTP, how sweet and funny was it for her phone to play her recorded message from the cliff. OMG! I howled with laughter, because how embarrassing. But, that was just the reprieve YSJ needed to keep pursuing her. Plus, I thought it was interesting when the Wi-Fi service came back and everyone was on their phones. KMY mentioned her mother several times, but not her father. I get the feeling he must've died, which is why she is so afraid of YSJ dying.

All in all, I can't WAIT! Next week is so far off, I need more now! Shout-out to the writers, director and actors. Every episode has been 5-star! They are doing a remarkable job!

@smiletallHmm maybe its's his management preventing media from asking things like how did he feel acting with kyo as partners or something like that. Because i believe Joong ki himself got no problem messing his image and mentioning things like, "park bo young is pretty, isn't she? Well she's mine" (it's the one and only 'dating scandal' he has in his entire career) or maybe it's because him and pby are so close. I there's nothing going on then it's probably out of consideration but i lean more on his management decision. Reason is, at nice guy and werewolf boy cp, he showered pby and mcw with praises, detailed explanation about their charms and how he learned so much from them. It's not in his nature to not praise his co-star. Heck, even at sia he praises bogum and said he learned from him. I kinda feel strange reading the dots pc interview because of that, and before, in elle mags interview he said he feels blessed to be able to act alongside shk.

Hey, can I just mention the young army man Kim Gi Beom... How cute was he trying to tell the american news crew that he was a soldier... acting it out for effect!! He is the perfect lost puppy... Cooking tofu for YSJ, crying over phone for SDY, trying to run to SDY when he got trapped in rubble... He is too cute... too eager to please! More reasons to love the writer! Not to forget that he played the cupid's agent by getting into the ER to start with. 

Details make a masterpiece!

YES!!!! I loved how KES wrote this character!

How he was such a mess and then turned around his life.....he is like so many of his age. Lost not knowing what to do. Even in the army he felt useless but realized that even the smallest things can help other people. 

Each character is precious on this show (minus Argus and that manager idiot :crazy:)
