Being rude is far worse than being blind shipper

in @packmule3's defence, I do not find her condescending at all.  I totally get what she wrote about how a shipper's heart often sway a person's viewpoint and at times it does make reading some post unbearable.  

I am a NON-SHIPPER although I write about JH.  This is only because of the way I see the storyline and character flows.  But at times I have appreciated so much how some people wrote about Taek in a most convincing way that I see their point and am open for an alternative ending.  It only serves to show me how cleverly the PD and writer has set up the story.  I don't know, sometimes I am under the impression that shippers think that their writing will influence the PD or writer's decision of the end game since everything is relatively in live shoot and thus, gets all aggressive over it.    Chill guys and girls.  Seriously, just be objective.  Be open.  Respect goes both ways.  

@packmule3 the line "he will be fine on his own..." ahhh, is he going to be on his own as in single?  Another good one from the PD to make JH fans anxious!

I agree especially with the unbearable part. And this is the main thread and not the shippers thread so everyone's opinion is different.

Our gripe with @packmule3 's post is their condescending tone toward people whose first language is not English. That was rude and uncalled for. Not all of us here are fluent in English, and that shouldn't matter. We gather here from all corners of the world to share our love for this drama, and language should not be a barrier. To act superior about your own handle of the common language spoken here is really disrespectful and hurtful. There is no need for anyone to apologize for their English, just as there is no need for anyone to pat themselves on the back because they are fluent.

I read it as she is giving allowances that not everyone's first language is English and thus what is written and what is read and interpreted could be different.  Even if everyone's first language is English, please bear in mind that very often on forums, what is written could easily be misinterpreted due to culturally, age or whatever differences.  Let's respect other people's opinion that could be contrary to your ship.  Like I said, it goes both ways.  

When I wrote about the wallet scene, I was told by someone here that it was my "hallucination" and that DS is not one to be handled like an object.  This is clearly not my intention to make DS like an object. I wrote it from a narrative standpoint, just like how they use the dolls and colours.  I chose to think the best of the person who wrote it, understanding that she/he too did not intend to "insult" me.  So, let's just choose to think the best of each other and ignore offences.  It is inevitable because we are all so different.  The last thing we want is for people to fear writing their analysis because of all the shipper's antagonism here.

Packmule and any fan or nonfan can say whatever they want or don't want about the drama, it's characters, ships, PD, writing, etc and it won't take from how I enjoy the drama (though it may give me new perspective to ponder over and new ways of looking at a character or scene). I also do not think viewers views or opinions will sway the writers or PD in any way shape or form from sticking to the story they have, and have had planned out. Anyone who has seen this team's  previous works knows they are not influenced by the audience and stick to their writing/story. No one is talking about or arguing this known and mostly accepted fact.

I have no problem with what that poster said (even if I may not ship it, have the same kind of admiration for the character, or agree with points made and or respond; I do enjoy reading views that differ from my own) I only take qualms with how they said what they had to say (hell it's not what they originally said, but the follow up to someone's inquiry of what they said). To imply that someone is not understanding a point you are trying to make or agreeing with you because your English is so superior and theirs is subpar is belittling of ones intelligence (and I believe uncalled for). Especially considering that may posters here native language is not English and they are forever needlessly apologizing for it. After reading something like that, it puts one off from wanting to share their views here if they don't have good English. These posters may feel judged for it or feel no one will care for what they have to say because their English is not good enough to even bother reading. 

So it's not a shipper heart or Junghwan fan (Jungbong is my bae and I enjoy the script and technical mood and aspects of a scene more) being wonded because someone may not ship or like the character/s I do (after 2 Reply series, 16 episodes into this one, and especially being a Jeong/Oppa shipper and Trash lover the last time around, I've learned and it's not that deep with me). The tone going around isn't as friendly and welcoming to all, like we like to act like it is, is all I'm saying. 

However if I'm the only one that got a problem here, 'pologize for distribute y'all's peace. Next time I'll read or skip a post more freely :)

@packmule3 thank you for sharing a well done analysis ... @packmule3 analysis is not just his random thoughts but an analysis supported of strong facts or arguments... For me there's no condescending tone in her/his analysis but just a very strong argument that other ship might find not favorable to their ships..the way he/she analyze it is really amazing ^^

I think 'the irony of life part 2' maybe referring to Dongryong being the 1 that becomes a celebrity instead of Noeul. Since 'the irony of life part 1' is about how Noeul is the 1 who passed the audition instead of Dongryong. Maybe in 'the irony of life part 2', Noeul failed his audition and Dongryong is the 1 who got street casted or something.

Missed a lot I see while I slept. Hmm...I always thought it was fun to read the speculation and assumptions about the scenes and about the characters.  The loveline is part of the plot and whether it's DS with SW, JH, Taek or DR, the only people who know for sure is the writer and PD. 

I love both JH and Taek and one of them will get hurt unless the writer pulls a doozy and it's DR! (Which means both will be hurt - come to noona!)

Sometimes I wonder if we do overanalyse what is happening but that's the fun of the discussion. Whether or not one agrees with someone's perspective I hope we are able to acknowledge the observation, discuss and move on. 

From the photos it looks like we will see more of BR and DS. Maybe Bora will give some sisterly advice to DS and catch SW visiting Bora!

Annyeong! This is my first post here, and this community seems like a lot of fun. At any rate, I just want someone to confess already, at this point I don't even care if its Jung-bong. Sigh. Anyways, team Jung-hwan all the way. *Insert Shia Labeouf meme.*

If you carefully re-read my post, I had written that people root for JH-DS as the OTP because they believe that the male character who loved the girl first or longest should get the girl in the end. I said that’s the WRONG argument to make – especially, if you’re a die-hard JH-DS shipper -- because it’s, in fact, TK who loved DS long before JH fell for her. 

 

Well.. i'm not one of "that people", and I guess people have their own reason for rooting their shipper, including JH-DS shipper. For me, as JH-DS shipper , the reason is because junghwan make me falling in love first, he took the action first, showing his affection first. How could i'm not fall in love with him, and i think, if i am dukseon *i know i'm not, this is just my opinion* , i would definitely love him as i never  see or feel affection from taek before junghwan does. And even if taek does it after, i'm already fall for junghwan and trap in it, couldn't get out anymore, so the affection that taek did couldn't touch my heart. That, if i am dukseon.

Sure we got some hint that taek like dukseon before junghwan, maybe way before but he never make dukseon aware of it first, unlike junghwan with all of his action. So for me is what dukseon feel first, that's the point.

I've worked on re-editing the subs for Episode 11 and so I felt some responsibility to correct any misunderstanding.

The exact words that the fortune teller used in Korean were "작은놈은 냅둬도 잘 살 놈이고..."

It seems like it's the translation of 냅둬 that caused the confusion. 냅둬 means to "leave to be" or "not meddle in one's affairs."  In colloquial English, people often say "leave him/her alone," and so I didn't think to fix the subs as done by DF that said "the younger one will do fine on his own." But the original Korean has no implication of a person actually being left alone literally. In the scene, the fortune teller is telling Ra Miran that even if you let JH be (and not meddle with him like mothers may do to her child), he is someone who will live/do well.

I know that international fans rely on subtitles, and so it's honestly humbling to know that people are relying on/dissecting every single word as we translate them. But it also reminded me how important (and difficult) it is for the subber to convey the original meaning across different languages and cultures without causing misunderstanding.

Ok, that's all from me. Please continue your discussion!

 

Thank you for your explanation.   I interpreted it as "leave him be" and not single.  Just saying' that that's how the writer likes to use words to mislead us.  We would interpret it according to our desire or our fears.  That's how our minds play tricks on us.

I am pulling for Taek for absolutely no logical reason.

I like odd balls

I like folk who hear a different drummer and go ahead and dance to the beat they hear.

I find kindness sexy. I think Taek is kind.

Introverts are of my tribe. I cheer on members of my tribe of oddball introverts.

I love reading the analysis that supports my heart, but even without them, and even without the writer's intention or permission, I will love whom I want to love.

This heart love Teakie.

i actually do want SunBora to get caught by DS hehehheh i think it will be funny and it'll be really interesting to see how DS has gotten over SW and how DS will playfully tease BR, showing BR's vulnerable side to DS for once. I think it'll be cute! :D it's about time they go public with their relationship!
