Me too...everytime I read packmule3's review, I feel like I missed so many things. Which is why I want to re-watch the episodes with new fresh set of eyes. 

Think the PD will give us a whole episode of flashbacks?!?! Please?? Pretty please?  There are so many things we are curious about. 

One more thing...maybe it's DR who's doing the interview. Given that we have this feeling that DR would be in the entertainment industry, wouldn't it be more possible that he's the interviewer? The adult characters seems to be comfortable with the interviewer. Taek ( I meant adult husband :sweatingbullets: ) talked about going for a smoke,  BR was actually smoking, NL was childish, if it was another interviewer, they would have been in their best behavior.

What about Taek's walking? He walks  a bit cooler  and fast in China  but irl he walks awkwardly lol which one is real though? Talking about The Producer again don't you think this is kind of reality show vibe regarding Baduk Genius Taek? What if Taek were to be perfectly fine  in daily life too wouldn't that have people idolize him? I can see that possibility, specially Deok Sun ^^ At least Deok Sun can't reject him  because he deserves  better ones lol that would be such a cliché resolution. But I don't think this is what Taek planned out nope it's more likely ad-lib kind of lying. He is already clumsy but he makes it look like he is hopeless instead of improving because it's not needed actually he doesn't think it makes him on disadvantage   oh please I don't even  want to think otherwise like backfire  :(

Also the future hubby jealousy over the chocolate gift that happens 27years ago implied hubby is clueless abt his wife past crush...and up until ep 16 Taek has no idea abt DS having a crush at any of the boys from their street,

 

I kinda took the husband needing to smoke in another way. I felt he was frustrated that she kept denying the fact that she gave the chocolate to someone else ( SW) not the actual fact that she had other crushes before him. Like future DS was saying his memory is wrong and that made him angry not the actual memory???

----

I just checked and there was no Music Bank yesterday for PBG to do...so it was very possible for him to be filming.

I also realise when DS mothering TK at the beach how he's going to survive in the world, that he's a pushover. look how big his smile is like saying  'you worry too much abt me, I know the life more than you do' bc he didnt go to school n working now. He too feeling happy when DS said that. Then when SW said the same thing like DS, he's feeling kinda hurt on his face with SW's words.. Well for me working n having to know the outside job world is harder than going to school or uni. So I think TK was afterall being adult outside world but being his age to his friends.

But despite being cold personality he's still very thougtful to the neighbourhood like how can we ever hate this guy. But what really bothering me now is the colour theory. For many times I was very sure that the green one(dolls theory) was meant for TK. However I tried to watch it back since the beginning that I thought it was for JH(green). Now im dont feel so sure anymore whos gonna be the husband :( 

I realise it when one time the blue one shows crying and it was when TK was defeated first time. Second, I saw the green one was crying when the title 'one warm remark' for Ep8.. thats when JB have his surgery and aftr his surgery ended well, JH was crying in room. And when watch all back, I think since the very beginning I think the green doll for JH.*cries

I actually started watching R88 straight until ep 10 and glued to this drama until then. Personally when I watch this drama my love was shifted from SW to JH to TK. I think my heart was shifted like how the drama want us too.

Okay till then, I love all of y'all posts. Knowing the camera place and shifting for TK perspective, I thought that was brilliant.

I was looking back at the recaps of all the episodes so far,and it's strange how the character arcs worked.Like at first jung hwan was undoubtedly the center of the story,and we see how everything takes place from his pov,the story moves around his family and deok sun's family half of the time,and then slowly the camera is focused on taek.We get more and more of him in each episode,until it's episode 6-7-8 and further on,when he's seen on regular  basis.And then with his increasing time,jh gets less screen footage and we also see less of his thoughts,actions.I'm really puzzled about the writer's intention behind this.So as @packmule3 said the story can go either way.Even if jh is the husband,I hope they don't pull a producer ending,and make him confess to deok sun at the last minute =/, which would also mean all these clues/hints were for nothing.That would  be the worst ending lol.Whatever it is,ep 17-18 would solve the mystery,once and for all =/.*Goes back to replay mode.

so in ep 8 we get this shot

zoomed in

tumblr_o0al55UoAq1sgauc3o1_540.png

look the blue is still with the crying face....if i am not mistaken the dolls faces do not ever change!! only the body positioning does  hence it could be a very clever trick of the PD to have tricked us all into thinking that the first shot of them when TK lost his game meant he was the blue doll...however in warm remark ep 8 as you said, it is JH that is crying.( i would even further argue that the green doll looks like TK when he looks at DS after she pats his head)

Hi, guys! It's me again :D

First of all, I want to apologize since for the next week I can't upload my fanart daily. I need to go back home and my mom (who is my house very own Ms. Cheetah) will most likely scold me to no end if she caught me doodling around in front of my laptop all day *sigh* So, yeah, I will still upload my fanart, but not as often ^^ Hehe.

This is from me for today!

tumblr_o0aknhsnSh1ut7f1go1_540.jpg

I drew it while listening to the latest OST and I teared up a bit :( I feel so sad 'though I don't even understand the lyric. My mind was just automatically repeating the beach scene like some sort of bittersweet memory. Ah... I guess I started to miss our Taekie :( (I just realized the cover for this OST is the beach scene :o What a coincidence! Tbh, I drew it without remembering the cover.)

OMOOOOOO, love all the insights! Our cunningly-sneaky Choi Taek! And that happy little bounce! MAJOR SQUEEEEEE~!!! <3

Hey so I was lurking on the main thread (as usual lmao) and I saw somewhat weird? theory including the colors red, yellow, green meaning taek, deoksun, junghwan... This has something to do with r94 because in it the husband color?? was green, and it was assumed that because junghwan is green=husband. wat? :blink: If someone knows more abt this theory, pls explain to me...I'm confused, because to me the whole color theory seems like over-analyzing... + even if the hubby color (omf what am I writing:huh:) was green in r94, I don't think it needs to be the same color in r88. What does some color have to do with the husband in any case? :huh:

please, enlighten me, so that I can understand this weirdness or just tell me it's someones delulu  :w00t:

Wanted to post aft reading packmule3 post here but hp went nuts on me. I love her post, so insightful, esp when main R88 is kinda of scary to visit. I didn't watch the Producers but if aft all the investment on Taek n he is not hubby, i gonna b so devastated n hide in a corner to cry.

Can't wait for new eps to hopefully put the hubby business to rest, yet worry how if Taek isn't hubby. I am so really for a time jump, see the gang all grown up in their professions.

@onlysb1

At this point we all noticed that there is 'more to Taek' than it seems... hehehe from his purposeful acting needy in front of his friends ( becos maybe if not they will feel he has outgrown them and no longer be in need of their care) ... How will you approach or be comfortable with a friend who is off making hundreds of thousands, constantly travelling overseas and is revered by the nation? 

As for why he walks differently.... actually I wonder if it doesn't take him alot of effort to 'maintain' his public image... Go/baduk is a mentally exhausting game, but you don't see the other players shuffling about like he does... I think the need to always look his best takes a toll on him... DS asked him why does he have no strength, even though he didn't have a headache or he didn't lose his match... yet he looks like a zombie... this guy is pushing himself way too hard...

Like I wondered why he didn't even know how to open a yogurt cup - is it because all his life his dad did it for him? Or if he seems to not know how to cook ramyun is becos nobody ever lets him do it himself? I'm sure if someone just needed to show him once how its done, he will know it. Look at how he wiped the floor with them after reading the Monopoly instructions manual... XD

I would start on pg 17 of this thread and start reading, there are multiple posts on the color theory findings in the subsequent pages. but pretty much in reply 1994 trash and NJ were green and yellow I think, and because of close up shots of green and yellow things together ( clothes pin, DS dad's gum pack) there is the theory that DS is yellow ( phone, Doll) and then JH or TK is green ( now in earlier ep it was JH or SW, because of how one of the reply posters had the arrangement to Olympic logo, and that had TK red, JH green, and SW blue, however that was trolling because SW is 100% red ( bora is purple because her name means purple, and the purple and red doll are kissing, red and purple clothes pin are together, red and purple pillows in JH house together behind them ect.)

and DR is for sure pink/white

No truer words ever spoken.

BTW, :heart:@mellinadear:heart: .. omg. That screenshot taken by @hafunohane had me rolling on the floor. You officially win the internet. I'll be calling you soon... plz give me some stock market advice, O psychic deity of the taektanic.

He didn't just wipe the floor. He memorized the cards and was card counting. Just another example (in addition to the baduk, rubik's cube) to demonstrate his fantastic memory. If Choi Taek 6 dan walked into a casino and played some blackjack, he'd walk away a rich man.

pls take this with a grain of salt. So I was re watching episode 6 and.....there was a part where the husband said "There's nothing I don't know about you." Sound familiar? 

If you didn't get it, DS said the same thing to Taek right before he said he liked someone. This might be a connection to TK wanting to assert dominance over DS (patting her head,etc) by using her own words and actions against her. If TK is the husband though, i'm not too sure about how he knew about the postcards..maybe from her diary? Don't remember too clearly. Also in the same episode they were talking about going to a singing contest. Again don't know how TK would be able to go if he was so busy with baduk competitions.. Maybe you guys can help figure this part out? Sigh, I need to give up before I disappoint myself :(

for the post cards, I think it could be easily explained--> 1) JH later on told him 2) he listened to Lee Moon Sae radio show 3) when JB went to get TK to help him make his post card more official he might have mentioned helping DS send post cards 4) read the diary 5) is not the husband LOL

the concert, DS said *everyone* went in 1989, so both JH and TK should be there
