I wish there could be more depth to the kisses between DMS and SC though. Like it would be nice for Dylan to portray trying to restrain his passion for SC during their kisses because he doesn’t want to scare SC off. 

FiRst of all Welcome

2 TOTALY Agree !! 

Not on the way the kisses are ( i dont mind soft kisses and how experianced they are) 

 

but as you said the way si can act about it 

in many ways (in the manga ect) domiyoji can barely restrain himself from touching /being phiscaly with makino in alot of scenes

since hes never felt that attracted to anybody befor (and never really had physical affection when it comes to the femals in his life /mom/sister/ect

i mean do we have any scene of him even hugging one of them ? )

 

and i think Si feels the same way since his early days around sc !

when he wanted her so mush around him and Wanted her attention fully even when it was hostil and forceful ( im talking about the agressive kiss at around ep3/4)

 

i mean i love how he grewup in this relationship into a soft ! Respectful gentleman (mostly ?lol) 

but that side of him where he almost cant stop himself from having some kind of skinship when it comes to sc would have been nice if it Was accentuated now

especialy that they dating now and sc is more open to being close 

 

(im expecting more from the previews tbh 

i dont wanna spoil lol )

Totally agree! I loved that aspect in the manga as well when he would make it clear to her how he had to restrain himself physically.  Also loved when makino would narrate in her head her sexual awareness of his epic hotness. Hope we get to see more of that later. 

 

Thats why I loved the interpretation of the kiss that was posted here

Spoiler

where he said her expression turned him on hahaa. The other sub I read said that it captivated him but no I much prefer the idea that it turns him on. :tounge_xd:

 

@rimjaycspoil me plz!! 

 

One change in MG2018 that I like is the rewrite of her parents to be more caring and less useless. They’re still funny but i prefer seeing them as a happy family unit than how they kept messing things up for Makino in the manga. I kind of miss her little brother though.

Thanks for the welcome! It’s nice being able to discuss the show with kindred spirits :D

 

I read the manga and watched the anime many years ago but I remembered how the physical attraction was very nicely portrayed. It added layers to their relationship which I really liked. 

 

Here’s hoping to more passionate kisses and that this part of their relationship will be portrayed in the show! 

 

By the way I was just rewatching parts of episode 30 on Netflix and I think Dylan really drank for the last scene. He totally had the Asian flush, even his eyes were bloodshot. That’s dedication to acting there!

I don't drink but I when I cry I become pink like that. LOL. Dylan was epic awesome in that scene. I keep rewatching that scene and the one where SC frantically searches for the necklace. Those two scenes really hit me in the gut Everytime I watch it. Kudos to both Dylan and Shen Yue for being soooo good in their roles. 

 

I like the kisses and I like that they took the passive route here when it comes to DMS's sexual desire for SC. I like this sweet approach so much more, but I also know passionate kisses are coming our way in the next week so I'm ready for that as well. At this point in the story, I don't have any complaints, even with Lei I have come to terms that he must be doing all that to get the puppies together. I can't wait for Wednesday to come. Welcome to all the newcomers!!!! Hehehe

Agree with everyone re: the passion/restrain; although I do have to say that Dylan & YueYue have the best physical chemistry (except for kissing lol). They are just SO comfortable with each other, physically. I don't remember in any other version where DMS & SC have so many moments where they interact so comfortably with each other, even before they officially date (e.g. when they played cards the night before her competition), and even more so after they start dating (e.g. the nose kiss when they helped each other study, etc.). This is different from the manga but I'm so glad for ONCE SC doesn't seem like a 5 year old, shrinking away or getting ridiculously embarrassed whenever he tried to touch her.

@kokodusI do think the sweeter approach does match our new smart woke bridge playing 2018 DMS haha. I like how they toned down the violence without losing the essence of the character too because that was one of things that always had me conflicted about the character in the original. We still got the takeout box throwing (with immediate guilt in his face after XD) and the forced kiss but I can totally do without the outright slapping her and other hitting of women.

Totally!!! Their chemistry is soooo good. One of my favs is the bed scene when they’re drawing on each others faces. I love whenever they look at eachother sleeping. It’s just too sweet. 2018 dms/sc is so good...

@insertusernamehere @feliset Agreed!!!! They both have a natural chemistry, like they don't even have to try harder, even them just standing together makes anyone think that they are a couple. Hahaha. They are comfortable with each other and even though they played down the sexual tension here, I kinda don't feel that disappointed because I just like the way they are now. Idk how to explain, but I didnt even think about this lack of sexual tension issue until peeps started talking about it here. Haha. Anyways, about the naturally oozing chemie btwn Si and SC, I think it also has to do with their off screen friendship. I was actually surprised at first seeing how comfortable they are with each other even offcam. It's a pleasure watching these two both onscreen and off screen. I wish they do another drama together. Is it too much to ask for??

@feliset when i was talking about spoiler i was exactly thinking about that kiss thats coming and the few bedscenes they hinted at in the karaoke MV thas been out yesterday !! haha

im sure acoming back from a breakup that emotional would only make them stronger and needy of eatchothers 

______________________

okey so i finaly had the guts to watch ep30 subs

and ho boy what a ride the scene where shancai and lei were looking for the necklace was so beautiful

And for once the music, was perfectly matchy to the moods 

 

i dont know if i said it befor but shen yue is suh a good/beautiful crier ! i dont know if its only me but i love her sad scenes ! she knows her to express those feelings the best 

 

and now LET ME TALK ABOUT MY BOY WANG HE DI !*inhale*

he outdid for that scene , and to think that he didn’t even have to cry a river just to show how much pain Ah Si was in? His entire face and even his eyes were so red and it seemed so real, it felt so real that it crushed my heart. 

easly one of this best work was in this episode ! that face pure sadness and hopelessness. the way he switched from laughing to crying in a sush a subtil well played way 

( and lets not forget its dylans very early work ... imagine him in 2 ..5 ..10 years ! CANT WAIT) 

i loved how the guys around him werent having it ! as mush as he tried to play it cool and asked them to cheers to lei/sc relationship 

they knew whats up since he sat down with those bottles ! and im kinda glad they were around and he wasnt alone like that TT 

-------------------------------------

 to  finish up im glad cainas plot line is over ... kinda sad for meizuo ! he is a cuty but im sure he will get over it soon 

that plot started silly and endedup silly for me lol

lowkey kinda bitter that the best kiss scene we have on the show right now was ACUALLY CAINA AND TERRANCE ! xD

have you see that guys ??? xD

@rimjayc I agree SY is a great cryer. I wish we could hear it undubbed. She got me right from the first episode when she cried with Lei after DMS had thrown the food at her.

 

the necklace searching scene was sooo T-T. I loved the music used starting with when DMS and SC first start talking by the water. It was done so well.

 

As for those future bed scenes...

Spoiler

 

im kind of hoping we get some sort of adaptation yo this chapter where things get hot and heavy and Doumyoji goes a little too far http://mangafree.online/18420/277634/hana-yori-dango-chapter-185

maybe not to this level cause I don’t think it would fit into how the current cast was written, but a little extra push from his side would be nice to see. 

 

I just love him telling her there isn’t anyone else he could imagine having sex with so he’ll just have to wait. Then her telling him it might take 5 years haha. My OTP

« SPoiled brat , littel boy , spoiled man » 

yep thats domiyoji tsukasa all around xD

 

 @feliset me and @kokodus brough up that chapter few days ago and wished for it to be redone in this version so bad xD

 

the chances are weak to be honest ( that scene is very daring ..shin yue did some cute kiss/cuddle bed scenes in a love so beautiful  as shy as she can get she is good ... i dont know about didi tho xD )

And i dont know if the mood of the drama will follow too ... they are keeping it very pg13

but hey the pd said they will follow the manga closely ... who knows may for the last episodes ?

@rimjaycyea I don’t think they’ll go there either but one can hope :). Even if it’s just verbal, I’d love to hear a little more. Like the one chapter after he’s moved in the apt net to her and she falls asleep on him, he calls her stupid for falling asleep cause now he could take advantage of her. Or I forget which chapter but when he likens the sight of her/not being able to have her to a buffet in front of a starving man. :tounge_xd:

 

 

That spoiler scene... ahhhhh :bawling:

I'm looking forward to when Si moves in as her neighbour to protect her. That arc is so funny in all other versions. Hehe. I'm not sure about the bed scenes, even if they give us one it will probably be similar to the one in 13th ep. LOL.

I have been lurking on this thread for the entire week. Couldn’t stand how the show left off this week. I had to re-watch earlier episodes to “recover” and get on with life.  

 

I've been lurking around, too. It just sucks having to wait another week just to see some parts, then it going to get cut off again and waiting again. :mellow:

I think we will have that scene! It's probably the one where they sleep on the same bed from those spoiler pictures (from the karaoke clips that have been circulated around twitter). 

The chapter where he said that was towards the end, when they were stranded on the island :D I think we will have the island arc as well but maybe not the whole ship scene where 

Spoiler

he accidentally saw her naked and then said that.

Subbed ep 32 is out on Twitter as well (wanghediarchive)!

 can't wait for tmr!!

First, a big "Welcome!" to all the new people on the forum. It's great to have so many people discussing the drama. I'm enjoying reading everyone's posts and insights about characters, plotlines, etc. 

I've accepted the fact about the low key kiss scenes in this drama, but I understand where people are coming from when they say they want more! I'm just grateful that so far they are real kisses with lips touching as I'm currently watching another  C Drama with fake kisses and weird camera angles (and the 2 main leads are a marrried couple!-go figure) But, yeah, I do wonder how different the love scenes might have been if this production was not hampered by the China restrictions, and if the cast was more experienced actors.  Regarding the sexual tension level in the drama: I agree it's been toned down as compared to manga and other adaptations where the characters are talking about sex a lot more. It is a bit unrealistic-they are teenagers, after all! OK-College students, but you know what I mean! That being said, I think there are quite a few scenes which show DS wanting to be close to SC: Trying to kiss her in the elevator, cuddling up to her when she was distracted looking at the phone, the piggyback rides, the playing cards on the bed, and he is always invading her personal space: standing close, backing her up against walls. 

My question: When are they going to start the Ximen/Xiaoyou storyline in this drama? I was hoping that we'd get a really fleshed out storyline for them in this version, but so far they have hardly interacted. This side story was so well done in the Korea version, so I've been looking forward to see how the writers would handle it for this version. So far, it is so disappointing! (And I am afraid that they are going to take the MG2001 route with these characters, which I didn't like how it was handled in that version)
