So last night I installed this app that notify you if Johnny or Zhouzhou are online. Big mistake. It makes me go even more delulu -_- I saw Johnny was online at 2:33 am. Then since morning, they have been online almost at the same time like Johnny will be online first then around 10 mins later Zhouzhou is online. But this???! At exactly the same time?!!! Is this app legit???!!

 

 

It's very common for them to be online at the same time, fans would have expected them to at least be on weibo at the same time once in a day.

Also, it's very well-known how the insomniac JY didn't go on weibo at late night when he's in the same place as ZZ :phew: which leads to more delulu thoughts for delulu fans.

In the novel, there's a part after Aunt Zhou has some trouble from local thugs where we see ZZ's mom talking to some people. Does that ever appear in the drama?

No matter what, in time we have to live with the harsh reality that they will not be working together or even be seen together for a long, long time. I suspect most of us will continue to support them as individual artistes, although the way we show our support is different. Some of us will be more generous in our support, others will exercise tough love. But we all want them to be successful.

But...

  Hide contents

I think the bigger and more difficult question is, given that there won't be Season 2 and that it may take 8 years or even more for them to ever be seen together again, what should and where should this thread be? Should this thread be moved to the shippers forum, for example?

 

For me I would have liked it if we had  edited season 2 (I do not agree with rape or kidnapping no matter how much people try to rationalize it) or to see them together in another show. I liked the show because of its portrayal of innocent first love and leads (this is the first BL show I have ever watched) .

But I do not ship them in real life I see them more as best friends or bros (If they are or will be in relationship in future I am all for it)

I think they both are really strong individual's ZZ more than JY. I mean with JY it's always written on his face when he is having hard time because he express it in some way be it by singing a song or his expressions. He's shows more openly so earns more sympathy (I am not saying that's a bad thing) its hard to express yourself like that.

But ZZ he has had more trouble than others but always faced with a smile he's had such harsh criticism like plagiarism scandal, eye surgery, etc (he always got attacked personally) but he's always handled it with grace and smile and he's only 22. So I already though he was good looking, talented etc but his attitude toward everything earned my respect

And according to Thai MC's interview ZZ/CW/FS were like  "to heck with this and we'll see what happens" that attitude made me smile. That's why I am more generous right now because they got thrown into this with a banned series that means people who support them now might not have seen the full series (I am talking about fans in China) that is a huge pressure already along with everything else.

So I might not ship them in real like but I still like reading about it (that might not make sense but its true it's like) Fans here are so unique and different but everyone gets along. Hence the reason I follow his thread.

what should and where should this thread be? Should this thread be moved to the shippers forum, for example?

If the series didn't even finish can we still consider the thread related to series- It started with the series but Addicted to me has become synonymous with ZZ/JY and FS/CW so why move it to shippers forum because not everyone ships them together in real like but accepts people who do. That's why fans here are unique.

It will also depend on people - I admire these 4 individual and their personalities so I wish best for them. I came out of my lurker mode when everything went bad so if I can support them during the worse time then I will always support them during better time (cause their position is still shaky).  

I actually believe once they get established themselves as something other than related to Addicted they will work together we just have to wait (You can already see it from the way they got casted together). So they just need to focus on their individual work.

And someone mentioned if Enlight takes ZZ then CJD might get more resources if it means CW/FS will get more exposure I hope that will happen.

This is one long post before it  gets longer i'll stop here. But I do hope it somewhat answered your question, if not let me know.:sweatingbullets:

@Oline Oline 

XWZ's voice doesn't have that wow factor, you know, you don't just listen to his singing and get stunned, or get goosebumps or something like that, he can't hit the crazy high note, his breath control when singing isn't good either. His voice, at most, is what I'd say kinda ear-catchy? easy to listen to. He needs serious practice. 

And have you listened to HJY's singing on changba? LOL, sometime I had to turn it off or I'd die laughing, seriously, his voice is nice and all but he seemed to hate the melody very much, he couldn't be together with it for 1/10 sec. Well, he needs even more serious practice. But his case is more serious than XWZ, because it's not only technique he needs to improve on, there are things you have to be born with, or else you'll never learn.

@seungrihyung 

Even though his official album hasn't been released yet, there are official records of those songs on weibo that we can listen to. So it's not like groundless criticism. 

And yes, they have to utilize his popularity atm, hence the rushed album, we can understand but we only can take it to a certain level, if it turns out to be something too much under the expectation, it'll do him more harm than good, especially considering his position now.

I so absolutely agree! It really is precious, because you can seen it's been done with so much heart. 

Speaking of the series, there's one thing I always thought was a bit bizarre: why is BLY showering with a towel on his shoulder? If you accept it as something BLY does in the Addicted-universe, can anyone think of a rational reason for it? 

In ep 8, it's quite obvious what the director's reason is for putting a random towel on ZZ's shoulder. But again, if we accept it as reality in the Addicted-universe, here's evidence that BLY has a tattoo! There should be theories on why BLY would have a tattoo.

In ep 12, this scene comes off like a sudden commercial break, for a new, fragrant shower gel for men... Or for soft porn.

GH obviously does NOT need  towel on his shoulder to shower, so why does BLY? (I love how BLY is so obviously checking GH out here! GH IS naked, after all. He's such a naughty boy.)

I just want to say, your gifs are great!!! Okay am not helping with the questions. 

@ximichem I think now he has time to do his old favorite thing? Walking around aimlessly. I am quite happy to see this picture. No fans!!!! He can have his quiet time. He needs his space. Picture taken as he wants it to be taken. So, it's all good.

Am I expecting too much? I really don't have an answer for this.

His first 2 songs were fine, if he could keep that up, it would be okay for his first album.

TBH, when his 3rd song, Moonlight, was out, I listened to it and my first reaction was " that's it?", but well, 1 not so good song in an album is acceptable, right?

Then that infamous  IRYE, seriously, I don't talk about the accused plagiarism aspect, But I wouldn't call that a song at all, it was an amateur attempt rather than a work of a professional and it was an English song for God's sake, his pronunciation still pains me every time I remember that song. But it's his first English song, okay, first try never perfect anyway, I lowered my standards. 

But his songs, damn it, why it only turns worse? And the theme for his album is all over the places. And his vocal T__T OTL does he really want to become a singer at all? If you close your eyes and don't let your fangirl/fanboy heart step in, will you feel like you're listening to a professional record? Will you buy it with your hard earned money. My answer is no. 

His acting skill is not that good either. But in a movie, he won't be alone, and he might just have a small role and he can learn from other seasoned actors. While recording a solo album, he only has himself to blame. Wish him luck.

Anyway, some people said HJY would be a better singer, I don't think so. I do like the tone of HJY's voice but his vocal range is not good and he doesn't have good sense for tempo and height of the note. Well, both XWZ and HJY don't have it in them to become great singer.

 

 

These are my thoughts

Spoiler

Well(IMHO).......about ZZ songs, some people like it but some people don't but I think it's back to personal taste regardless you're fangirl (fanboy) or not. I agree with you about his vocal, he seriously need vocal coach to improve his vocal range. But the main point for me is his interpretation, it's like lack of emotions in his songs (except "Walk Slowly").

@hawhaw88 , try listen to "The Greatest Basso" from Zhao Pheng and you will fall in love with all about BASS voice :heart:

Nah, some people just like to shower with a towel because they use the towel to ah....scrub their backs? :lol: GH should have offered to do that for BLY.

And yes to the 'shower gel" commercial break. Totally pulled me out of the show for a moment even though it is excellent fan service. I remember LOL the first time I watched it.

I'll help you with the delulu this time.

Even if HJY and XWZ don't online weibo at the substantial same time, CP fans have their explanation: it's HJY logs out his weibo account then logs in XWZ's account, which means HJY has XWZ's weibo password and such.

I wonder why it's not the other way round though? why isn't it XWZ who does that but always HJY?

LOL my interpretation of the follow/unfollow:

When following that model - subliminal message to ZZ that he's angry

When unfollow - ZZ all is good, I'm happy now

I can not read chinese yet, so I read all english translation and korean translation of 'Are you addicted?'.

 

I think that this novel is good but not excellent. Some part is very good, but some part is poor. I read many BL books. Honestly, If someone else acts GH's role or BYL's role, Drama could not success like this mess. I think JY and ZZ's charming made this drama success. Not their abilities. Also not novel's good story telling.

 

BYL charactor in drama is different from novel. I feels ZZ' BYL is shy and some pitiful. In my eyes, he is not genious, indifferent. His smile is mischievous and chilish.  Sometimes, his face is ugly.  But, novel describe...

 

BLY laughed. He didn't hide his laughter at all. The noon sun of an autumn day shone upon his face. He looked relaxed and carefree. GH looked at him silently. At this moment, his heart lost some balance out of a sudden

He's hot and cold to people and he's clear-cut with his relationships. When he's cold, you would feel that he's nothing like the hot sun above his head. But, when he occasionally warms up to you, every bit of snow in your heart will melt instantly.

 

He has adorable smile but did not show in drama. I saw YY interview many times to see his smile. His smile and looks fascinate me, but he did now show it in drama. I think that they would play better if they had enough time. They said that they played 1 time or 2 times for one scene. It's too hard to newbie.

 

Their acting is not good, but they can persuade peoples to like and sympathize with these characters. I think that reason is not their appearance, but their charming and aura. They are newbie. Sometimes, they are nervous and don't show their abilities and charming. Sometimes, they fascinate people. Now, they are young and immature, so, their charming is bigger. As most entertainers go thru hard training and do their job well, their unripe charming vanish.

 

ZZ's music taste is  too wide. He can do dancing, singing, beat box, all kind of metal and composition. I don't imagine he will be some kind of singer. He said that music was his hobby and his singing ability is not good.

 

I think he can act better. I want to see him in another drama. Also, when he releases his album. I'll buy it.

Yup easy to listen. And agree with the goosebumps thing hahaha

He can't reach the high note yet.

So he needs a hit song to cover his voice.

And his skill at play guitar is a good thing. :)
