I'm in the middle of watching 42 and I just came here to say one thing.......can we all appreciate how much of a protective and caring and reliable boyfriend he is.....he opened her Yakult bottle!!!!!! Hahahahaha. I melted. Omg why are you so good, Si??? Sighhhh. I wish the island arc lasts long....

 

I agree he is totally attentive as a boyfriend to her and you see it from the moment he realizes he likes her. When they meet up after she gets his appliances, he has a juice waiting for her and wipes her mouth when she spits out her drink. This is juxtaposed when she goes out on the date with Lei and spits out the water and he grabs a napkin to wipe himself and not her and she makes a brief look like she noticed the difference. Same think with the Lei date where he shows up in "unusual" clothes and says he just put on whatever. And, Si clearly dressed up for their 1st date. There are so many examples of him like this and to be fair Lei is better about it later. But, the difference is clear. Si is unambiguous about how much he cares for her from the start!

 

A total unrelated question...is Ah Si his actual first name or just Si? Is the Ah a part of the name or a term of endearment?

Thank you for reminding me of that scene. I keep thinking DS is so perfect this time around but him ruining her reunion really was not cool. Although I hate that it came right after the Canada rescue episode. At the time watching it, I was kind of mad at SC's initial reaction to seeing him show up at her reunion considering what they had just been through.

 

HAHAHA...reminds me of an interview they did where Dylan was asked about which scene he thought was the most ridiculous, and he said Shan Cai thanking Lei for pouring wine on the girl, but not even a thank you for the guy who risked his own life to save her. Dylan said his heart broke for DMS.

I guess Si, because Daoming isn't even a real Chinese last name, it's just a translation from the actual Japanese name from the manga. There are 3 ways Chinese people say the name of something they are close with, and they very rarely say a person's first and last name like SC still does with DMS, especially with 3 character names. I guess it depends on which one rolls better off the tongue

 

1. add Ah in front of the last word like Ah Si (used mainly for guys)

2. Double one of the words from that person's first name like how people use Didi instead of Wang Hedi for Dylan

3. Use Xiao which means little in front of one of the words in either the first or last name

Omg ahh I died at that Yakult scene too :bawling:  It just shows how comfortable they are with each other and able to anticipate each other's needs. Idk why but it kinda reminds me of how everyone was freaking out about Peter moving the popcorn in the pillow fight in To All the Boys I've Loved Before hahaha.

In Chinese it's common to add Ah in front of single character names as a nickname. So "Si" becomes "Ah Si"

^ Looks like @rocky689 answered the question better!

It has become a task for me to do marathon youtube search to find/watch new vids of this drama and the cast on every Fridays after finishing with my weekdays. I basically spend my weekends watching/rewatching MG eps and related vids, lol. I'm not sure what I'm going to do week after next week. This is the very first Chinese drama that I've watched without waiting for it to be aired/subbed/reviewed/rated completely.

Anyways, here is a video of their full performance + some additional cuts.

 

Even though all of us, if not most of us want DyShen ship to sail in real life,

I also notice that a lot of people, including me (surprised myself, lol) want this ship to sail in real life too.

As for whether it's Dylan's portrayal that makes Si more likable, i would definitely say yes! But I have fallen for Tsukasa in every other version as well, no SLS for me, it's hard to dislike a character that undergoes massive growth throughout the course of the show because of love. @mouse007 I'm surprised that you didn't like Matsu jun's portrayal of Tsukasa, well it was not a love at first sight for me as well, but I came to gradually love him by the end of season 1 and it was full on obsession by second season. LOL. I loved him to bits. I think unless portrayed by a really bad actor this character is hard to mess up with. Every actor who played this role had their own take on how Tsuakasa would be and I have loved all of them. 

This!! This is happen to me as well when I saw MatsuJun in HYD lol :D. At first I keep wondering why they cast him as Tsukasa but then I can't think of another actor who play Tsukasa than him since he played the character very very well; childish, arrogant and I find his bad English is amusing. I love him in season 1 and love him even more in season 2 and the final movie :kiss_wink:.

 

I agree with you that all actor that played the role of Dao Ming Si/ Doumyoji Tsukasa have their own way and their own charm to play the character that make us love them for it.

 

To be honest I didn't have any expectation when watched this new version for the first time. I was watching another remake by Kdrama based on my fave US series but the story was dissapointed and I actually was a bit afraid I will feel the same way with MG2018. The reason I watched it was because I loved TW, JP and KR version. I was surprised that after watched the first 3 eps for the 2nd time (yes, 2nd time lol) I became addicted to this drama. Dylan really portrait the role of Dao Ming Si flawlessly, especially in the forced-kiss scene on the rooftop. I can feel Shancai's fear when angry Ah Si confront her. His acting was really good there that made me think, wow, this is really a Dao Ming Si. His acting is getting better after that, and I'm happy that he was chosen as Dao Ming Si. Angie sure made a right decision :D

I also knew when I saw the posters that Dylan would be Tsukasa. Every cell in his body was screaming that he is your typical bad boy arrogant jerk Domoyouji Tsukasa. He definitely has that aura. Also let me be a little shallow here, I thought he was the most good looking among the four. LOL. Sadly I thought Ximen would be Lei and vice versa. Dunno thought CW had that Tsundere vibe while i remember Darren looking more playful.

@kokodus sorry, don't know how I missed this so I'm just replying now... 

 

I actually have not seen the J version in its entirety hence probably why I have not fallen for Matsu  Jun. I have seen bits and pieces of it and I think a large part of why I haven't seen the entire thing is because I wasn't crazy for him in the first few episodes. I didn't know about the J version until I was already in the middle of the K version and I was so into Lee Minho at that point. LOL 

 

BUT, you bet I will be watching the entire J version (seasons 1 and 2) after this!

@rimjayc LOL is the MG fandom also into To All The Boys I've Loved Before on NF? I had previously read and  loved the books so I watched the movie when it came out. 

 

The Yakult scene was so endearing for sure! It was just so natural for DS to do it for SC.

@bccem99 Totally agree with you here. I think that although Lei was nice to SC right from the beginning, it wasn't as if he was paying any special attention to her. He was still so consumed with Jing and all of his thoughts were of Jing. He was simply being a good guy, helping a girl. However, when SC yelled at him and encouraged him to go to Paris to pursue Jing, he realized that SC really cared for him and I think that's what led him to open up to her after he came back. I think he does love SC, perhaps only as a dear friend and "pet" as he puts it, but it grew slowly over time and as he got to know her better, he became more sensitive and attentive to her. I think the fact that Lei also knows how important SC is to DS makes him want to take care of her even more.

 

And yes, after DS realized he liked her, he was totally attentive to her. He just didn't know how to express himself or handle his feelings properly in the beginning and he came off as an arrogant and selfish bully to SC. I think this is why it took so long for SC to fall for DS. But what I like about DS is that he's an "all or nothing" kinda guy. Once he realized he liked SC, he always gave it his best shot and was relentless in pursuing her. 

 

I was just re-watching some of the earlier episodes and the episode where SC falls sick and DS visits her at home was lovely for me. It's the first time we get a sense that there's more to DS than meets the eye. He visits her bringing a basket of fruits as a present and he was so polite and so well-behaved and sincere with her parents. It was also the first time SC saw a different side of him because she even thought to herself that she's never seen him so polite and that he ate everything in his bowl. It was just really sweet.

Ikr??? It's just a small thing and he has done much more things for, but I don't know why that Yakult bottle scene got me like crazy. I screamed!!! Hahahaha. 

 

@elle_cha Yes!!!! HYD is my very first J drama and I was so hesitant to pick that up because I couldn't imagine anyone else playing GJP. But it was my friend who insisted that I would absolutely love it and it's far better than BOF. Hehe. She was so right!!!! Matsu Jun as Tsukasa is definitely one of the best!!! I can still hear him shouting "Maaaaakino" in my ears. He was soooo loud. LOL. And who can forget his "Humming yay" HAHAHAHA. 

 

@mouse007 You should totally give the J version another try. It's one of the best. You should also watch the movie. They island arc and the wedding comes only in the movie. It is the most cute, most satisfying love story I have ever seen. And I'm sure you will come to love Matsu jun's Tsuakas. It's hard to dislike the most stupid, most childish, most loving porcupine ever. Hahaha.

@kokodus I had to laugh when you guys mentioned Peter Kavinsky because it certainly seems all of us here have a certain type. hehehe

 

Don't worry, I will definitely give the J version another try. Everyone seems to agree that it's one of the best versions and everyone can't be wrong!

I love that part when he goes and ruins her high school reunion because it emphasize the fact that no matter how much of a pain in the richard simmons he is sometimes, she would still forgive him and be with him. LOL. 

 

@mouse007 I also love that scene when he visits her home for the first time and behaves like the most polite and obedient kid ever. LOL. And their little talk outside where he couldn't even bring himself to ask her out properly. And the best part is when he calls her tiny girl, dunno about others but that was downright adorable to me. I'm restricting myself from going back and rewatching the most early eps because anyways I'm going to rewatch the whole thing when it ends and I wish I don't remember all the details well so that when I watch it for the second time I could fall in love even more. Hehehe.  I know it doesn't make sense.

so waaay back on august 9 or thereabouts, Wotad asked me which Taiwan drama had Joseph Cheng <3 and the amnesia plotline... sorry, it was a film, which I don't remember the name of - I got it mixed with the drama he was in that I was watching... the one with the drunken marriage with the hotel supervisor. The film was where his ex wife has an accident and doesn't remember their divorce, blah blah.. tragic ending. I only watch because I like our Joseph... don't tell my hubby!

I kept watching Meteor garden in the end, because of Wu Xie Ze… can't get enough

Completely off topic, can anyone tell me the name of the actor in Taiwanese 'Love You' drama, the one who was trying to date Shi Yun (??? the GM's sister) for revenge? Super sexy... I can probably find out myself, but I guess you guys are the experts!

My bad... not 'Love you' ... it was 'love now'... I think 'love you' was the one with the drunken marriage. I get them all mixed up as they all have bad plots, amnesia, drunkenness, piggy backs, revenge, outrageous contrived co-incidences, unabashed childishness from all parties, rescues from highly unlikely situations, at least one hospitaliztion, and everyone kissing as if they were corpses...

METEOR GARDEN.... is even worse because it's becoming even more like an extended advertorial than it already was... and I'm getting really bored. Can't help myself though, I'm fast forwarding to all the scenes with Wu Xie Ze. If I were young again...
