Wookie's related. About his musical performance :)

 

 

Details about upcoming military musical “Shinheung Military Academy” have been unveiled.

 

According to media reports, the musical production that will feature active duty soldiers Kang Ha Neul, Ji Chang Wook and Kim Sung Kyu will premiere on September 9, 2018 at Theater Yong, National Museum of Korea.

 

Original musical “Shinheung Military Academy” is set against the backdrop of infamous and dark events in Korean history from 1907 to 1920 when Korea was under the Japanese occupation. Due to Japan’s tyrannical rule, anti-Japanese sentiments grew among Koreans at home and abroad, and gave birth to armed resistance movements such as the “Shinheung Military Academy” in Manchuria which aimed to regain Korea’s independence and autonomy.  The musical production will highlight the lives of the patriotic youth who, despite their struggles amidst the chaotic and turbulent times, chose to sacrifice their lives and fight for  freedom of their country.

 

The main cast consists of Kang Ha Neul, who will take on the role of Pal Do, representative of the youth. He is an orphan and has never met his parents. His background did not deter him from reaching for his dream of independence for his motherland. His hardwork and training at the Academy paid off as he emerged as an outstanding freedom fighter. Meanwhile Ji Chang Wook will play Dong Kyu, a distinguished student of the Academy and son of an anti-Japanese Confucian scholar. Finally, INFINITE’s Kim Sung Kyu will play the role of real-life historical figure, General Ji Cheong Cheon. General Ji was a graduate of the Imperial Japanese Army Academy who later led the Korean guerrilla forces against the Japanese.

 

Experienced theater actors Lee Tae Eun, Lim Chan min, Lee Jeong Yeol and Oh Jin Young will complement the talented cast. A total of 37 participants including actors, singers, martial artists, dancers will perform in “Shinheung Military Academy”.

 

The 150-minute musical also boasts of a strong production team recognized as the best in Korea. At the helm is director Kim Dong Yeon (Infinite Power, M. Butterfly, Hamlet: The Play), one of the most popular and in demand directors at  Daehangno, Seoul’s theater and performing arts district.  Playwright Lee Hee Jun from hit musical  “Mama Don’t Cry” will write  the script and lyrics, while composer Park Jung Ah, also from “Mama Don’t Cry” will be responsible for all the musical elements in the production.

 

“Shinheung Military Academy” commemorates the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the Republic of Korea this year.  The show is sponsored by the Republic of Korea Army and produced by Shownote Company Limited, known for hit musical productions “Hedwig” and “200-Pound Beauty”.

 

Performances will run from September 9 to 23 at Theater Yong, National Museum of Korea and  it is scheduled to go on national tour until the end of the year.

Found the old tweet about the Epilogue with “101 Resons Why I Love You”. If I remember it right, the Dcut version has different BGM.

 

It does? I haven got time to finish watching the entire dcut! Hahaha. Shall make a mental note on the difference! Thanks for highlighting dearie!

And towards the end when one of the staff asked him to go..it felt like he doesn't want filming to end :P :lol:And Hyunni smiling and waving bye at him haha ^_^

 

Hahahah. And there was a high five and a subtle cheeky air kiss too! Keke.

Am I the only one who sees his actions in this video very much similar to Hyunnie's? Like the hand raising (after blowing the birthday candles) and head shaking (after cutting his birthday cake)..... :-)

 

Is it? Do we have a hyunni video to compare with dearie? Hahah.

Well, I guess I should change my profile picture from my usual frog to a snail, since I have managed to be late - for the second time! - with this post :lol::sweatingbullets: but well... at this point I can only say better late than never, and just go ahead. :P

 

With this post, I (very, very, very) belatedly fulfill my promise to @pauliza , made almost 4 months and over 100 pages ago (we were on page 1467!), to share my own list of 101 reasons to ship NamJi. Due to busy RL I could not complete the list immediately, but I was determined to do it before the DVD. However, the Dcut arrived in my hands a couple of weeks earlier than I thought, and with that my resolution was gone, because the 16 discs (ok, mostly the 2 couple discs ;))  monopolized all my spare time, and in addition there was so much to process. So I thought I could finish my list later, and post it on July 6th, as my celebration for the anniversary of the release of the OST. But then I was not able to join you all for the past few days, and... I ended up missing both the celebration and my deadline.:P

 

But here we are now.

However, a few words  of explanation before we go. 

1. Aside from little spare time, one of the reasons for the initial delay was that for a long time I wondered if I should come up with a "visual" list instead. Because there are simply no words to describe some Namji "moments" and only pictures, gifs and vids can do it. They speak for themselves. I wanted to post a series of pics or short clips and just write 1. THIS! 2.THIS! 3.THIS!, etc... But on the other hand, there were also a few reasons that required words, so in the end verbose me decided for the wordy version.:P No one here will be surprised about this, right?  :lol:  

2. This is a "Dcut free" list. Because I started it before the Dcut, and wanted to keep it that way. And because as you @pauliza very appropriately commented some time ago, after the Dcut it's more like we have 1001 reasons to ship NamJi :lol:;):wub: Good thing that the list was 95% done (mostly requiring just the final touches, some rephrasing, re-arranging the order, adding the references for some quotes, etc.) before the Dcut arrived, otherwise it would have been really, really difficult to keep a lot of new reasons out of it. I struggled already to avoid the new vision and perception of NamJi gained through the Dcut from creeping in... :sweatingbullets: As a result, this list definitely feels a bit outdated, naive and innocent :P but I hope you don't mind it. 

3. This is a list of 101 reasons why I ship NamJi.  Or why I love NamJi and cannot not ship them. Why I am enjoying the journey. By no means it is meant a list of "evidences". This was not my point when compiling this. It's not the purpose of this list. I didn't set out to prove anything, or convince anyone. Several of my points are totally meaningless in this sense: the only thing they can prove is that I am a certified NamJi goner... and happy to be one! :lol::P:P 

4. Despite having completed my list of 101 entries and had fun doing it reminiscing a lot of swoon worthy moments, I still firmly believe what I said when you first mentioned that you were curious about my 101 reasons:  I do not need 101 reasons to ship them. 

I only need reason no. 1. And reason no. 101 as a consequence. Everything in between is just a specification, a small detail, that would mean very little without #1 and #101. 

So...

 

1. :heart: Their happiness. Their laughter, the smiling eyes, the joy that radiates from them when they are together.:heart:

2. I love each of them individually, but I just ADORE them together  (translated for our math teacher: Nam = LOVE, Ji = LOVE, but Nam+Ji = LOVE^10)  ...

3. ... because when they are together the very same qualities that make them individually adorable shine even brighter.

4. The BTS that were released week after week by SBS Catch were as entertaining as the drama itself.

5. We got to see the magic of NamJi unfolding before our eyes...

6. ... and fell in love with them again and again, more and more.

7. The way the surrounding people (PDnim, CTJ, Nara, his assistant, etc.) look at them sometimes... they are so us! ;)

8. With them, you often can't tell offsreen from onscreen...

9. ... And when you can distinguish reel from real, you realize that "real" looks sweeter than reel.

10. To the point that rival ships had to come up with the theory that BTS were scripted, because even they could see that NamJi's behavior with each other was special.

11. They kept taking care of each other during the filming (fixing each other's hair, etc.).

12. He was extra-playful with her.

13. Sometimes you see that he was purposefully trying to make her smile/laugh just because her smile is beautiful.

14. And the way he smiles as he is looking at her smiling/laughing melts my heart.

15. She always laughed at his jokes or playful antics, even if she occasionally acted annoyed and wanted to choke him.

16. He even started mirroring her way of laughing (clapping hands, etc.)

17. They were just too cute trying to re-enact the dance move of the teaser during the presscon. Failing and smiling all the way. (I have to mention specifically this moment, because it does not fall into the other descriptions/categories, and it is simply too adorable to be omitted):D

18. "Personal space", "manner hands", etc. are expression that do not exist in the NamJi dictionary.

19. In fact they look comfortable with each other and the skinship between them was natural almost from day 1.

20. Looking at them, you don't even feel their age gap.

21. Just the way he is, he perfectly fits the description of her ideal man.

22. Just the way she is, she perfectly fits the description of his ideal woman.

23. The drawing of his ideal woman resembles her a lot, whether it is a coincidence or not...

24. He said (half jokingly? referring to their age gap?) that he waited 8 years to meet her.

25. In an old interview, he had said "I seem to live while holding on to the dream that I will meet a destined person someday. We will either keep running into each other coincidentally, or taking a slight glance while walking past but not being able to forget [the person]" (JCW - Harper's Bazaar - Sept 2016) ...

26. ... and coincidentally their fates intertwined since 2011.

27. They took part to the same drama (WBSD) in 2011, despite not meeting then. And it was probably for the best, as she was barely a teenager and it was too early

28. They have the same hair stylist - who loves both of them - and have been going to the same salon where they could see each other in passing and hear about the other for over 5 years.

29. They were on the same stage, standing side by side, at the KBS drama awards in 2014. And they probably caught each other's attention then. Stolen glances and everything....

30. They presented an award together in Jan 2017, and they were definitely aware of each other. Smiles and sparks abounded.

31. She mentioned and thanked him in her IG post on that occasion.

32. In the end 2 actresses had to turn down the offer to star in Suspicious Partner before she was considered for the part and decided to take up the role.

33. They clicked and showed a perfect chemistry right from the start.

34. ... and he did not miss the chance to remark it in an interview that took place at the time of their first photoshoot.(https://jichangwookkitchen.com/2017/04/14/drama-ji-chang-wooks-qa-interview-for-suspicious-partner-revealed/)

35. The way he looks at her (and this should count as at least as 5 reasons, because there is the mesmerized look, the adoring look, the affectionate look, the mischievous look, the hungry look, etc. all equally swoon-worthy)

36. The way JiWook looks at BongHee (that counts too, since he said that rather than look at BongHee with eyes brimming with emotion, he was just looking at her naturally (Ji Chang Wook - Night of Real Entertainment 13/06/2017 tranlsation credit   JCW's Kitchen https://jichangwookkitchen.com/2017/06/14/eng-sub-20170613-night-of-real-entertainment-suspicious-partner-ji-chang-wook/#more-25421 video: video: https://vimeo.com/221448904  )

37. He simply cannot take his eyes off her, and he isn't afraid to show that. 

38. The way she looks at him (even if she more guarded and less obvious...)

39. Their eye-talks. ('nuff said).

40. He finds her pretty and enjoys saying that in public.

41. He finds her sexy and he said that in an interview while blushing

42. She does look incredibly sexy during their kiss scenes. Not a girl who is acting sexy, but a woman who is feeling sexy.

43. And she really bloomed from a lovely girl into a beautiful woman during and after Suspicious Partner.

44. Their hands. A perfect fit. Best hands' chemistry in a drama ever. Their hands tell a love story of their own...

45. His hands, always reaching for her. To hold her, to caress her. And she doesn't mind .

46. In fact, she does initiate skinship herself on a few occasions.

47. The lingering touches, from both of them.

48. They give a whole new meaning to wrist holding (wrist holding is <3)

49. Her small hand on his wrist during their kiss scenes. Or caressing his neck, or his shoulders. Or pulling him even closer.

50. His hand on her head after filming the first kiss, and her hands on top of his, as if they did not want to break the connection.

51. His arm casually flung over her shoulders, more than once.

52. His arm around her waist while waiting to film the bed scene (and his expression of utter contentment right there).

53. Their hands caressing - out of frame - during the proposal scene.

54. Special mention: his hands reaching back for her wrists without even looking in one of the early BTS (piggyback scene), because that was the very first spark that triggered my shipper's heart.

55. Their kisses that feel so raw and real.

56. Their kisses that I can replay over and over and over, and still give me goosebumps even one year later.

57. Their kisses that got the "best kiss award" by SBS Catch, Soompi and basically every poll because even non-shippers acknowledge how good and beautiful those kisses are.

58. Their kisses because you can feel the longing, the desire and the love.

59. Their kisses that look way hotter in the BTS version compared to the aired version.

60. Their kisses that look incredibly pretty even if they are a bit dirty.

61. Their first kiss - uncut version - that got age-restricted on YT, obviously because it felt too real also to haters.

62. Their first kiss that played, in the BTS "uncut" version instead of the official drama version, during Jiscovery as he was singing 101 reasons.

63. Their first kiss, because before shooting the scene he was clearly nervous but did not try to play it cool and he did his best to comfort and support her.

64. Their first kiss, because before shooting the scene she was clearly nervous but did not try to play it cool and trusted him completely.

65. Their first kiss, because he said "Although we were already close to each other when we shot the kiss scene, it was still awkward. While being considerate of each other, we also tried hard to pretend that it wasn't awkward and also tried hard to act like we were ok" (Ji Chang Wook - Night of Real Entertainment 13/06/2017 tranlsation credit   JCW's Kitchen https://jichangwookkitchen.com/2017/06/14/eng-sub-20170613-night-of-real-entertainment-suspicious-partner-ji-chang-wook/#more-25421 video: video: https://vimeo.com/221448904  )

66. Their first kiss, because of the sparkle in his eyes, the animation and the softness in his voice as he said that.

67. Their kisses, because he repeated many times (Jiscovery, Vlive, etc.) that he thought their kiss scenes were beautiful

68. Their kisses, because, while acknowledging that their kiss scenes were led by JCW, she made sure to point out in her post drama interviews that they made those scenes together because they discussed a lot about them during rehearsals (see: https://www.soompi.com/2017/07/17/nam-ji-hyun-talks-ji-chang-wook-took-lead-kiss-scene-bed-scene/)

69. Their kisses, because I have 101 reasons to ship NamJi based on their kisses alone and all the feels they give me (but I will end the kiss-related list here :P)

70. Their bear hugs, because they feel real too and make you feel warm inside. 

71. Her IG post on May 24th (BongHee adoringly looking at JiWook with added stars).

72. His IG post on May 25th (The Rain scene - Gazing at the Moon).

73. Her IG post on July 16th (wearing BH's necklace and making a kissy face).

74. She didn't tag the sponsor or thanked anyone, as she usually does, and later she only mentioned that the necklace was "a gift".

75. Her IG post on July 22nd (nailart matching the stationary used for JCW's letter shown during Jiscovery later that day - even if I do believe it's a coincidence...)

76. Despite their sizzling chemistry that did not go unnoticed by the media, no questions were asked in the post drama interview about possible dating, etc.

77. Still, they had many chances (in their interviews, Vlives, ig posts, etc.) to debunk the ship, but so far they never did.

78. They praised each other, personally and professionally, in their interviews.

79. He also specifically mentioned that he behaved like a child and joked around NJH, and she accepted it well, and that they had a lot of conversations. (https://jichangwookkitchen.com/2017/07/19/interview-20170718-ji-chang-wook-suspicious-partner-press-interviews/#more-26576 and others)

80. Both mentioned they had built a relationship where they were comfortable with each other, also filming intimate scenes.

81. She also said that he helped her feel comfortable when filming the bed scene.

82. She mentioned that he has beautiful eyes and deep-like-ocean eyes    (NJH post drama interview https://www.instagram.com/p/BWumMT1gwRl/ )

83. "When we act the script while having eye contact is the heart fluttering point" (NJH post drama interview - answering a question about heart fluttering moments while filming with JCW   https://www.instagram.com/p/BXCzgteAKmj/)

84. "There was also a scene [2nd dirty but pretty scene] that made me think <If my lover would do this to me I will feel happy>If someone would look at me with that kind of eyes when I am explaining about something I think I will feel really happy" - because Wookie looked at her like that a lot of times (NJH post drama interview - answering a question about heart fluttering moments while filming with JCW   https://www.instagram.com/p/BXCzgteAKmj/)

85. The cover image chosen for "101 reasons why I like you" is the hug from the 2nd dirty but pretty scene, and both said they liked this scene.

86. She mentioned that she had listened to his ost, but couldn't add it to her playlist because she would have been embarassed if someone on set saw it (https://twitter.com/otpshits/status/888618634964115456)

87. His answers about love and dating are completely different before and after SP

88. Not only before SP he always said he did not want to date close to his enlistiment, but before SP he usually spoke about dating, during and after SP he started talking about love.

89. SP made him want to love and date (V live July 28th, 2017)... mere weeks before enlisting. 

90. His selection of the best romantic scenes from SP, including the "This is my woman" scene, at Jiscovery

91. The "yeppo" slip while he was watching their couple scenes during Jiscovery

92. His expressions and his gleaming eyes while he was watching their couple scenes during Jiscovery

93. He decided to answer the fan's question about what he would do if there was someone he loved since he had to enlist, and mentioned that he had been thinking about that (Jiscovery)

94. The content of his reply: "If I have a woman I love, I'll keep loving her. Going to the army has nothing to do with it, because it's love, that degree of love. If she still loves me when I return from military, then we will continue the love. But if she doesn't, then... I'll cherish it as a good memory"

95. He addressed himself as her Oppa in an interview on national TV...

96. ... said that he did not want her to worry and wanted to show that he can do well during MS...

97. ... but that he would be very grateful if she visited him in the army.

98. "And to the one who was my partner - ChangWookie oraboni... I would like to send my gratitude to Ji ChangWook oraboni. Because you looked after me beautifully, everything came out beautifully" (NJH thank you speech at the SBS awards)

99. Her expressions while watching their couple scenes during the SBS awards.

100. My NamJi shippers family is jjang and makes shipping more fun. :D

101. :heart: Their contagious happiness. The happiness, the contentment, the joy, the elation I feel watching them together. The idiotic smile that spreads on my face when I see them together. :heart:

 

 

Sorry for such long post - I hope it was not too boring, even if this one is just my own list and probably - while some reasons might be common to all of us - others of you have different views/reasons that make the top 101. I would love to hear everyone else's take! 

For now, have a great week ahead, chingus!!! 

Thank you !!!Yes,post DVD Cut - we have 1001 Reasons to ship Namji couple :wub:

Well, I guess I should change my profile picture from my usual frog to a snail, since I have managed to be late - for the second time! - with this post :lol::sweatingbullets: but well... at this point I can only say better late than never, and just go ahead. :P

 

With this post, I (very, very, very) belatedly fulfill my promise to @pauliza , made almost 4 months and over 100 pages ago (we were on page 1467!), to share my own list of 101 reasons to ship NamJi. Due to busy RL I could not complete the list immediately, but I was determined to do it before the DVD. However, the Dcut arrived in my hands a couple of weeks earlier than I thought, and with that my resolution was gone, because the 16 discs (ok, mostly the 2 couple discs ;))  monopolized all my spare time, and in addition there was so much to process. So I thought I could finish my list later, and post it on July 6th, as my celebration for the anniversary of the release of the OST. But then I was not able to join you all for the past few days, and... I ended up missing both the celebration and my deadline.:P

 

But here we are now.

However, a few words  of explanation before we go. 

1. Aside from little spare time, one of the reasons for the initial delay was that for a long time I wondered if I should come up with a "visual" list instead. Because there are simply no words to describe some Namji "moments" and only pictures, gifs and vids can do it. They speak for themselves. I wanted to post a series of pics or short clips and just write 1. THIS! 2.THIS! 3.THIS!, etc... But on the other hand, there were also a few reasons that required words, so in the end verbose me decided for the wordy version.:P No one here will be surprised about this, right?  :lol:  

2. This is a "Dcut free" list. Because I started it before the Dcut, and wanted to keep it that way. And because as you @pauliza very appropriately commented some time ago, after the Dcut it's more like we have 1001 reasons to ship NamJi :lol:;):wub: Good thing that the list was 95% done (mostly requiring just the final touches, some rephrasing, re-arranging the order, adding the references for some quotes, etc.) before the Dcut arrived, otherwise it would have been really, really difficult to keep a lot of new reasons out of it. I struggled already to avoid the new vision and perception of NamJi gained through the Dcut from creeping in... :sweatingbullets: As a result, this list definitely feels a bit outdated, naive and innocent :P but I hope you don't mind it. 

3. This is a list of 101 reasons why I ship NamJi.  Or why I love NamJi and cannot not ship them. Why I am enjoying the journey. By no means it is meant a list of "evidences". This was not my point when compiling this. It's not the purpose of this list. I didn't set out to prove anything, or convince anyone. Several of my points are totally meaningless in this sense: the only thing they can prove is that I am a certified NamJi goner... and happy to be one! :lol::P:P 

4. Despite having completed my list of 101 entries and having fun doing it reminiscing a lot of swoon worthy moments, I still firmly believe what I said when you first mentioned that you were curious about my 101 reasons:  I do not need 101 reasons to ship them. 

I only need reason no. 1. And reason no. 101 as a consequence. Everything in between is just a specification, a small detail, that would mean very little without #1 and #101. 

So...

 

1. :heart: Their happiness. Their laughter, the smiling eyes, the joy that radiates from them when they are together.:heart:

2. I love each of them individually, but I just ADORE them together  (translated for our math teacher: Nam = LOVE, Ji = LOVE, but Nam+Ji = LOVE^10)  ...

3. ... because when they are together the very same qualities that make them individually adorable shine even brighter.

4. The BTS that were released week after week by SBS Catch were as entertaining as the drama itself.

5. We got to see the magic of NamJi unfolding before our eyes...

6. ... and fell in love with them again and again, more and more.

7. The way the surrounding people (PDnim, CTJ, Nara, his assistant, etc.) look at them sometimes... they are so us! ;)

8. With them, you often can't tell offsreen from onscreen...

9. ... And when you can distinguish reel from real, you realize that "real" looks sweeter than reel.

10. To the point that rival ships had to come up with the theory that BTS were scripted, because even they could see that NamJi's behavior with each other was special.

11. They kept taking care of each other during the filming (fixing each other's hair, etc.).

12. He was extra-playful with her.

13. Sometimes you see that he was purposefully trying to make her smile/laugh just because her smile is beautiful.

14. And the way he smiles as he is looking at her smiling/laughing melts my heart.

15. She always laughed at his jokes or playful antics, even if she occasionally acted annoyed and wanted to choke him.

16. He even started mirroring her way of laughing (clapping hands, etc.)

17. They were just too cute trying to re-enact the dance move of the teaser during the presscon. Failing and smiling all the way. (I have to mention specifically this moment, because it does not fall into the other descriptions/categories, and it is simply too adorable to be omitted):D

18. "Personal space", "manner hands", etc. are expressions that do not exist in the NamJi dictionary.

19. In fact they look comfortable with each other and the skinship between them was natural almost from day 1.

20. Looking at them, you don't even feel their age gap.

21. Just the way he is, he perfectly fits the description of her ideal man.

22. Just the way she is, she perfectly fits the description of his ideal woman.

23. The drawing of his ideal woman resembles her a lot, whether it is a coincidence or not...

24. He said (half jokingly? referring to their age gap?) that he waited 8 years to meet her.

25. In an old interview, he had said "I seem to live while holding on to the dream that I will meet a destined person someday. We will either keep running into each other coincidentally, or taking a slight glance while walking past but not being able to forget [the person]" (JCW - Harper's Bazaar - Sept 2016) ...

26. ... and coincidentally their fates intertwined since 2011.

27. They took part to the same drama (WBSD) in 2011, despite not meeting then. And it was probably for the best, as she was barely a teenager and it was too early

28. They have the same hair stylist - who loves both of them - and have been going to the same salon where they could see each other in passing and hear about the other for over 5 years.

29. They were on the same stage, standing side by side, at the KBS drama awards in 2014. And they probably caught each other's attention then. Stolen glances and everything....

30. They presented an award together in Jan 2017, and they were definitely aware of each other. Smiles and sparks abounded.

31. She mentioned and thanked him in her IG post on that occasion.

32. In the end 2 actresses had to turn down the offer to star in Suspicious Partner before she was considered for the part and decided to take up the role.

33. They clicked and showed a perfect chemistry right from the start.

34. ... and he did not miss the chance to remark it in an interview that took place at the time of their first photoshoot.(https://jichangwookkitchen.com/2017/04/14/drama-ji-chang-wooks-qa-interview-for-suspicious-partner-revealed/)

35. The way he looks at her (and this should count as at least as 5 reasons, because there is the mesmerized look, the adoring look, the affectionate look, the mischievous look, the hungry look, etc. all equally swoon-worthy)

36. The way JiWook looks at BongHee (that counts too, since he said that rather than look at BongHee with eyes brimming with emotion, he was just looking at her naturally (Ji Chang Wook - Night of Real Entertainment 13/06/2017 tranlsation credit   JCW's Kitchen https://jichangwookkitchen.com/2017/06/14/eng-sub-20170613-night-of-real-entertainment-suspicious-partner-ji-chang-wook/#more-25421 video: video: https://vimeo.com/221448904  )

37. He simply cannot take his eyes off her, and he isn't afraid to show that. 

38. The way she looks at him (even if she more guarded and less obvious...)

39. Their eye-talks. ('nuff said).

40. He finds her pretty and enjoys saying that in public.

41. He finds her sexy and he said that in an interview while blushing

42. She does look incredibly sexy during their kiss scenes. Not a girl who is acting sexy, but a woman who is feeling sexy.

43. And she really bloomed from a lovely girl into a beautiful woman during and after Suspicious Partner.

44. Their hands. A perfect fit. Best hands' chemistry in a drama ever. Their hands tell a love story of their own...

45. His hands, always reaching for her. To hold her, to caress her. And she doesn't mind .

46. In fact, she does initiate skinship herself on a few occasions.

47. The lingering touches, from both of them.

48. They give a whole new meaning to wrist holding (wrist holding is <3)

49. Her small hand on his wrist during their kiss scenes. Or caressing his neck, or his shoulders. Or pulling him even closer.

50. His hand on her head after filming the first kiss, and her hands on top of his, as if they did not want to break the connection.

51. His arm casually flung over her shoulders, more than once.

52. His arm around her waist while waiting to film the bed scene (and his expression of utter contentment right there).

53. Their hands caressing - out of frame - during the proposal scene.

54. Special mention: his hands reaching back for her wrists without even looking in one of the early BTS (piggyback scene), because that was the very first spark that triggered my shipper's heart.

55. Their kisses that feel so raw and real.

56. Their kisses that I can replay over and over and over, and still give me goosebumps even one year later.

57. Their kisses that got the "best kiss award" by SBS Catch, Soompi and basically every poll because even non-shippers acknowledge how good and beautiful those kisses are.

58. Their kisses because you can feel the longing, the desire and the love.

59. Their kisses that look way hotter in the BTS version compared to the aired version.

60. Their kisses that look incredibly pretty even if they are a bit dirty.

61. Their first kiss - uncut version - that got age-restricted on YT, obviously because it felt too real also to haters.

62. Their first kiss that played, in the BTS "uncut" version instead of the official drama version, during Jiscovery as he was singing 101 reasons.

63. Their first kiss, because before shooting the scene he was clearly nervous but did not try to play it cool and he did his best to comfort and support her.

64. Their first kiss, because before shooting the scene she was clearly nervous but did not try to play it cool and trusted him completely.

65. Their first kiss, because he said "Although we were already close to each other when we shot the kiss scene, it was still awkward. While being considerate of each other, we also tried hard to pretend that it wasn't awkward and also tried hard to act like we were ok" (Ji Chang Wook - Night of Real Entertainment 13/06/2017 tranlsation credit   JCW's Kitchen https://jichangwookkitchen.com/2017/06/14/eng-sub-20170613-night-of-real-entertainment-suspicious-partner-ji-chang-wook/#more-25421 video: video: https://vimeo.com/221448904  )

66. Their first kiss, because of the sparkle in his eyes, the animation and the softness in his voice as he said that.

67. Their kisses, because he repeated many times (Jiscovery, Vlive, etc.) that he thought their kiss scenes were beautiful

68. Their kisses, because, while acknowledging that their kiss scenes were led by JCW, she made sure to point out in her post drama interviews that they made those scenes together because they discussed a lot about them during rehearsals (see: https://www.soompi.com/2017/07/17/nam-ji-hyun-talks-ji-chang-wook-took-lead-kiss-scene-bed-scene/)

69. Their kisses, because I have 101 reasons to ship NamJi based on their kisses alone and all the feels they give me (but I will end the kiss-related list here :P)

70. Their bear hugs, because they feel real too and make you feel warm inside. 

71. Her IG post on May 24th (BongHee adoringly looking at JiWook with added stars).

72. His IG post on May 25th (The Rain scene - Gazing at the Moon).

73. Her IG post on July 16th (wearing BH's necklace and making a kissy face).

74. She didn't tag the sponsor or thanked anyone, as she usually does, and later she only mentioned that the necklace was "a gift".

75. Her IG post on July 22nd (nailart matching the stationary used for JCW's letter shown during Jiscovery later that day - even if I do believe it's a coincidence...)

76. Despite their sizzling chemistry that did not go unnoticed by the media, no questions were asked in the post drama interview about possible dating, etc.

77. Still, they had many chances (in their interviews, Vlives, ig posts, etc.) to debunk the ship, but so far they never did.

78. They praised each other, personally and professionally, in their interviews.

79. He also specifically mentioned that he behaved like a child and joked around NJH, and she accepted it well, and that they had a lot of conversations. (https://jichangwookkitchen.com/2017/07/19/interview-20170718-ji-chang-wook-suspicious-partner-press-interviews/#more-26576 and others)

80. Both mentioned they had built a relationship where they were comfortable with each other, also filming intimate scenes.

81. She also said that he helped her feel comfortable when filming the bed scene.

82. She mentioned that he has beautiful eyes and deep-like-ocean eyes    (NJH post drama interview https://www.instagram.com/p/BWumMT1gwRl/ )

83. "When we act the script while having eye contact is the heart fluttering point" (NJH post drama interview - answering a question about heart fluttering moments while filming with JCW   https://www.instagram.com/p/BXCzgteAKmj/)

84. "There was also a scene [2nd dirty but pretty scene] that made me think <If my lover would do this to me I will feel happy>If someone would look at me with that kind of eyes when I am explaining about something I think I will feel really happy" - because Wookie looked at her like that a lot of times (NJH post drama interview - answering a question about heart fluttering moments while filming with JCW   https://www.instagram.com/p/BXCzgteAKmj/)

85. The cover image chosen for "101 reasons why I like you" is the hug from the 2nd dirty but pretty scene, and both said they liked this scene.

86. She mentioned that she had listened to his ost, but couldn't add it to her playlist because she would have been embarassed if someone on set saw it (https://twitter.com/otpshits/status/888618634964115456)

87. His answers about love and dating are completely different before and after SP

88. Not only before SP he always said he did not want to date close to his enlistiment, but before SP he usually spoke about dating, during and after SP he started talking about love.

89. SP made him want to love and date (V live July 28th, 2017)... mere weeks before enlisting. 

90. His selection of the best romantic scenes from SP, including the "This is my woman" scene, at Jiscovery

91. The "yeppo" slip while he was watching their couple scenes during Jiscovery

92. His expressions and his gleaming eyes while he was watching their couple scenes during Jiscovery

93. He decided to answer the fan's question about what he would do if there was someone he loved since he had to enlist, and mentioned that he had been thinking about that (Jiscovery)

94. The content of his reply: "If I have a woman I love, I'll keep loving her. Going to the army has nothing to do with it, because it's love, that degree of love. If she still loves me when I return from military, then we will continue the love. But if she doesn't, then... I'll cherish it as a good memory"

95. He addressed himself as her Oppa in an interview on national TV...

96. ... said that he did not want her to worry and wanted to show that he can do well during MS...

97. ... but that he would be very grateful if she visited him in the army.

98. "And to the one who was my partner - ChangWookie oraboni... I would like to send my gratitude to Ji ChangWook oraboni. Because you looked after me beautifully, everything came out beautifully" (NJH thank you speech at the SBS awards)

99. Her expressions while watching their couple scenes during the SBS awards.

100. My NamJi shippers family is jjang and makes shipping more fun. :D

101. :heart: Their contagious happiness. The happiness, the contentment, the joy, the elation I feel watching them together. The idiotic smile that spreads on my face when I see them together. :heart:

 

 

Sorry for such long post - I hope it was not too boring, even if this one is just my own list and probably - while some reasons might be common to all of us - others of you have different views/reasons that make the top 101. I would love to hear everyone else's take! 

For now, have a great week ahead, chingus!!! 

Goodness...this post made me unlurk.....this deserves an applause!

48. They give a whole new meaning to wrist holding (wrist holding is <3)

49. Her small hand on his wrist during their kiss scenes. Or caressing his neck, or his shoulders. Or pulling him even closer.

50. His hand on her head after filming the first kiss, and her hands on top of his, as if they did not want to break the connection.

51. His arm casually flung over her shoulders, more than once.

52. His arm around her waist while waiting to film the bed scene (and his expression of utter contentment right there).

53. Their hands caressing - out of frame - during the proposal scene.

54. Special mention: his hands reaching back for her wrists without even looking in one of the early BTS (piggyback scene), because that was the very first spark that triggered my shipper's heart.

55. Their kisses that feel so raw and real.

56. Their kisses that I can replay over and over and over, and still give me goosebumps even one year later.

57. Their kisses that got the "best kiss award" by SBS Catch, Soompi and basically every poll because even non-shippers acknowledge how good and beautiful those kisses are.

58. Their kisses because you can feel the longing, the desire and the love.

59. Their kisses that look way hotter in the BTS version compared to the aired version.

60. Their kisses that look incredibly pretty even if they are a bit dirty.

61. Their first kiss - uncut version - that got age-restricted on YT, obviously because it felt too real also to haters.

62. Their first kiss that played, in the BTS "uncut" version instead of the official drama version, during Jiscovery as he was singing 101 reasons.

63. Their first kiss, because before shooting the scene he was clearly nervous but did not try to play it cool and he did his best to comfort and support her.

64. Their first kiss, because before shooting the scene she was clearly nervous but did not try to play it cool and trusted him completely.

65. Their first kiss, because he said "Although we were already close to each other when we shot the kiss scene, it was still awkward. While being considerate of each other, we also tried hard to pretend that it wasn't awkward and also tried hard to act like we were ok" (Ji Chang Wook - Night of Real Entertainment 13/06/2017 tranlsation credit   JCW's Kitchen https://jichangwookkitchen.com/2017/06/14/eng-sub-20170613-night-of-real-entertainment-suspicious-partner-ji-chang-wook/#more-25421 video: video: https://vimeo.com/221448904  )

66. Their first kiss, because of the sparkle in his eyes, the animation and the softness in his voice as he said that.

67. Their kisses, because he repeated many times (Jiscovery, Vlive, etc.) that he thought their kiss scenes were beautiful

68. Their kisses, because, while acknowledging that their kiss scenes were led by JCW, she made sure to point out in her post drama interviews that they made those scenes together because they discussed a lot about them during rehearsals (see: https://www.soompi.com/2017/07/17/nam-ji-hyun-talks-ji-chang-wook-took-lead-kiss-scene-bed-scene/)

69. Their kisses, because I have 101 reasons to ship NamJi based on their kisses alone and all the feels they give me (but I will end the kiss-related list here :P)

70. Their bear hugs, because they feel real too and make you feel warm inside. 

71. Her IG post on May 24th (BongHee adoringly looking at JiWook with added stars).

72. His IG post on May 25th (The Rain scene - Gazing at the Moon).

73. Her IG post on July 16th (wearing BH's necklace and making a kissy face).

74. She didn't tag the sponsor or thanked anyone, as she usually does, and later she only mentioned that the necklace was "a gift".

75. Her IG post on July 22nd (nailart matching the stationary used for JCW's letter shown during Jiscovery later that day - even if I do believe it's a coincidence...)

76. Despite their sizzling chemistry that did not go unnoticed by the media, no questions were asked in the post drama interview about possible dating, etc.

77. Still, they had many chances (in their interviews, Vlives, ig posts, etc.) to debunk the ship, but so far they never did.

78. They praised each other, personally and professionally, in their interviews.

79. He also specifically mentioned that he behaved like a child and joked around NJH, and she accepted it well, and that they had a lot of conversations. (https://jichangwookkitchen.com/2017/07/19/interview-20170718-ji-chang-wook-suspicious-partner-press-interviews/#more-26576 and others)

80. Both mentioned they had built a relationship where they were comfortable with each other, also filming intimate scenes.

81. She also said that he helped her feel comfortable when filming the bed scene.

82. She mentioned that he has beautiful eyes and deep-like-ocean eyes    (NJH post drama interview https://www.instagram.com/p/BWumMT1gwRl/ )

83. "When we act the script while having eye contact is the heart fluttering point" (NJH post drama interview - answering a question about heart fluttering moments while filming with JCW   https://www.instagram.com/p/BXCzgteAKmj/)

84. "There was also a scene [2nd dirty but pretty scene] that made me think <If my lover would do this to me I will feel happy>If someone would look at me with that kind of eyes when I am explaining about something I think I will feel really happy" - because Wookie looked at her like that a lot of times (NJH post drama interview - answering a question about heart fluttering moments while filming with JCW   https://www.instagram.com/p/BXCzgteAKmj/)

85. The cover image chosen for "101 reasons why I like you" is the hug from the 2nd dirty but pretty scene, and both said they liked this scene.

86. She mentioned that she had listened to his ost, but couldn't add it to her playlist because she would have been embarassed if someone on set saw it (https://twitter.com/otpshits/status/888618634964115456)

87. His answers about love and dating are completely different before and after SP

88. Not only before SP he always said he did not want to date close to his enlistiment, but before SP he usually spoke about dating, during and after SP he started talking about love.

89. SP made him want to love and date (V live July 28th, 2017)... mere weeks before enlisting. 

90. His selection of the best romantic scenes from SP, including the "This is my woman" scene, at Jiscovery

91. The "yeppo" slip while he was watching their couple scenes during Jiscovery

92. His expressions and his gleaming eyes while he was watching their couple scenes during Jiscovery

93. He decided to answer the fan's question about what he would do if there was someone he loved since he had to enlist, and mentioned that he had been thinking about that (Jiscovery)

94. The content of his reply: "If I have a woman I love, I'll keep loving her. Going to the army has nothing to do with it, because it's love, that degree of love. If she still loves me when I return from military, then we will continue the love. But if she doesn't, then... I'll cherish it as a good memory"

95. He addressed himself as her Oppa in an interview on national TV...

96. ... said that he did not want her to worry and wanted to show that he can do well during MS...

97. ... but that he would be very grateful if she visited him in the army.

98. "And to the one who was my partner - ChangWookie oraboni... I would like to send my gratitude to Ji ChangWook oraboni. Because you looked after me beautifully, everything came out beautifully" (NJH thank you speech at the SBS awards)

99. Her expressions while watching their couple scenes during the SBS awards.

100. My NamJi shippers family is jjang and makes shipping more fun. :D

101. :heart: Their contagious happiness. The happiness, the contentment, the joy, the elation I feel watching them together. The idiotic smile that spreads on my face when I see them together. :heart:

 

 

Sorry for such long post - I hope it was not too boring, even if this one is just my own list and probably - while some reasons might be common to all of us - others of you have different views/reasons that make the top 101. I would love to hear everyone else's take! 

For now, have a great week ahead, chingus!!! 

 

:love:   :heart:   :love:   :heart:   :love:

 

Love your post @midorinokerochan... Thanks for bringing out some moments I missed/forgot to mention about why I jump in this NamJi ship. And those 101 really bring back memories :wub:

 

Anyway, we are counting down to July 12th, the 1st Anniversary of SP last episode. Get ready ya'll... So many things to celebrate on that day :)
