I'm too excited that I don't care, going to be reading the recaps and will catch the episode later with english subtitles. We all know that Bon wasn't going to die by the explosion and he was going to get away somehow. He was going to fake his death and hideout for a bit, then come back. 

 

I'm so glad the first person he goes and see is Ae Rin and the kids. :) It's great to see him spend time with her and her family.

 

I'm sure next week Bon will really make his move. The time he took off, he was probably gathering information and getting closer to finding out is the mole and bad guy and all.

Besides that I enjoyed so much BonTae scenes, such chemi on screen :wub:

Indeed. I do have a soft spot for SJH especially after binge watching GBC.  JYT has has it tough...he was conned and became a con.  But the Voice won't let him off the hook so easy. He will likely have to be on the run till Bon is back in the picture ( which was in tonight's episode) cause from the live caps I don't think he trusts Yoo or anyone in the NIS since he knows too much and that he is well aware of how corrupted the NIS is.  @ktcjdrama ( thanks for the recaps)  I think it could be him ...the dude is a survivor. He knows he has to find a way to keep himself alive.

You know we guys always do this for two important reasons:

I am very appreciative of you and @dramaninja for sticking with us . Always interesting to read a male perspective . And it takes a real man to suffer through our pages and pages of fangirling  over "ko-ko"  just to get to the bottom of the story. :lol:.

 

@thistle there's a Quiznoz not too far from where I am ...thanks to this drama i tried it and was tasty. Better than Subway :P

 

@Visually-wandering I know you are sad coz no happang in the other drama :D . But  here we will be lucky to get a kiss. As you can see they only allow one skinship per episode.

 

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

 

You know I have been thinking a lot about the romance  ;) and the delicate issue of AeRin being a widow with 2 kids. While I am personally very liberal in my thinking as I seriously do not think there's such a thing as the right time for her to fall in love again or look at another man, I do understand the sentiment of the audience at large. Just my perspective - AeRin's marriage was quite  typical of couples struggling to balance work , parenting , finances etc . While I am sure she loved her husband, I do think that they were going through the motions of being married and being parents. Her tears and regret at the funeral is to be expected , because she's been with this man for more than a decade. Even if you are not madly in love anymore , you would still feel sad and sentimental.  The tears were also brought about by her sudden realisation that she's going to be raising 2 kids alone and she was at that time unemployed. These feelings can be overwhelming. Plus there was regret that she did not manage to make things right with him before he died.

 

So does having  affections  for Bon now so shortly after the husband's death mean she has forgotten her husband ? Honestly I don't think so. He would always be remembered as her first love and the father of her children. But I don't see any problem in her moving on , she's not cheating on him.  For some folks it takes them years to get over a break-up what more death ( watch the 3rd charm & you will know what i mean ) . For some, they tend to look ahead and don't dwell too much on the past. I believe that we don't see AeRin moping and mourning is primarily because she's always been a tough cookie who is able to  rise above the challenges that came her way. Her mum said that about her at the funeral.  Plus if you have two other mouths to feed, your own feelings will become the least of your priorities. 

 

And for the twins, I can tell you why they don't seem to miss dad. Besides what AeRin said to them, at that age the person they would miss the most is the primary caregiver - which was AeRin. From the little we have been shown dad hardly saw them. This was true of my own boy.  My husband used to work such long hours that he hardly had time with our son. When he went away for work etc, my son (he's 8  now) hardly asked for him . But if I were to go just a day away, he would cry like it's the end of the world because I spend the most time caring and looking after him. So Joon Joon won't miss dad much as he has not put in the emotional investment that AeRin or even Bon has.  

 

The PD and writer have been very good at keeping the romance going without ruffling anyone's feathers. They respect that the audience may have reservations .The skinship has been slow and the focus has been alot more on emotional connection and support as opposed to a physical attraction. So I think it is good timing for the romance to take off - we really only have 4 more hours left.

I remember reading an article that discussed the fact that people who had been either happily or comfortably married were very likely to marry within a year of being widowed, so it happens a lot in real life.  While AR and her husband may not have been blissfully happy, they were obviously comfortable with one another and comfortable with married life.  It makes sense that she would be able to fall in love again.

 

The show has been handling this romance gently with innocent flirtation like ko-kos.  Hopefully the audience will be open-minded enough to see that love is in bloom.

I have to say that I agree with you 100% about the romance aspect in the drama. Rather than creating a fiery and passionate love that we tend to see in other dramas, this drama has been focusing on a different type of love which is deep and quiet in comparison. It is more about an building a relationship on supporting each other and finding peace/comfort with another person. While there is obviously passion that the leads feel for each other, it is taking the back burner. In some ways, it feels like they are already married, based on how they interact with each other. I see them and super compatible people who have both been through hard things who have come rely on each other emotionally. 

As you said, I also think that the romance aspect will start to grow more in the next episodes, though like we have seen it will have a natural progression. I think we may get some hand holding and another hug before a kiss though. And even the kiss may be a forehead kiss first. 

So far, Bon has been the one initiating all of the physical contact. But it has been interesting in that AR has let him every time and has not complained. Eventually, I think she will make a move towards him, though that may be at the very end of the drama when they all move away and live together as a family. :D

@triplem, I thought the entirety of your post reflecting on AR's and J-J's emotional states over their father was really thoughtful and well written. I also agree with your reflections, and don't think that I could add anything more to your well-expressed sentiments.

 

I'm one of those who tend to hold onto emotional things, however, I can see that the demands of day to day living, including making money and caring for two small children has caused AR to process things more quickly and to return to more of a normalcy than she might otherwise.

 

I'm also really happy with teh OTP interaction because it shows the trust, the emotional connection, and the support that has developed between Bon and AR. And, truthfully, those are things which may have not been fully present in her marriage either.

 

Sometimes, marriage isn't the end all and be all, even if one is in love, and one's marriage partner may not be one's soul mate, the one who understands you best and cares about you most. Actually, as people, I tend to think that we possibly get lost in our own issues to really be able to notice other people's issues, even those who are close to us. So, AR's husband was going through things at work that AR was not aware of, and she was going through things at home that he was not aware of. Given time, they may have been able to work it out, but that's all moot now.

 

Bon has consistently, time and time again, shown how much he values AR and J-J. And, now, he has demonstrated how much he values them over other things in his life, even trying to figure out the mole threatening national security, not to mention had set him up as a possible traitor previously. That is only his life's work, AR and J-J are a part of a de facto family that they've become.

 

The romance in this drama is interesting in that it shows a more mature kind of love that comes from a place of needing healing (all of them, Bon, AR, J-J) and is inclusive rather than young love which while passionate tends to be exclusive. And the skinship follows along. Bon clearly wants more, but is slow and even uncertain in his approach. AR is only now waking to the fact that she might be attracted to her friend as something more. Having established that friendship first, they've skipped the fumbling aspects of do-they-don't-they to go straight to an acknowledgement of how important they are to each other.

 

Having said all that, and acknowledging that the OTP is the OTP, I wouldn't object to a few kisses and snuggles somewhere. Maybe in the penultimate episode, we might get something? :D Anyway, even if we don't get to be pervy in this drama, I find the romance to be very satisfying. And, I have no problems with this drama versus others which shall go nameless where the endings left me going "huh?" even when it was a nominally happy ending.

@triplem many good thoughts here.  Joon-Joon sadly were not getting the time with their father as all children need.  Both boys and girls need positive adult role models of both genders.  I am very glad to see that KB is filling that role very nicely.

 

I do think that the writer & director have done a pretty good job of not making the blossoming romance overly quick or in our faces.  I think they are being sensitive to the general audience.  The writers were in somewhat of a no-win situation on this one in terms of trying to please everyone.  Like all things, you do your best and hope for the best.

 

I also have to admit that I find the pacing of the romance on Terius much better than Where Stars Land.  Goodness Gracious!  The pace of that romance is hard to keep up with.  Please don't blast me for this.  I just like the pacing on Terius a little more natural than the 3-second thing on WSL.  I do love the WSL series as well.

The family scenes just because it's cute.

 

 

Bon: Thanks to you, I’ve eaten so well. I’ll do the dishes then.
Grandmother: Never mind the dishes. Stay until after breakfast. I’ll make you some seaweed soup with fresh crab.
Bon: No, that’s fine.
AR: Bon-sshi can’t just sleep anywhere. Because he’s sensitive.
JS: Ajusshi! Sleep over and go.
JH: You agreed that we could go to the sea in the morning.
AR: Joon-Joon, that’s enough.
Grandfather: The house is a little too shabby for you to be able to sleep, isn’t it?
Bon: No, it’s nothing like that.
Grandmother: Then, go somewhere comfortable to sleep, but come back in the morning, and let’s eat breakfast together. Huh?
Bon: If you really want me to, then I’ll sleep and eat breakfast before I go.
Grandfather: Yes, do that.
AR: Why are you doing this? You’re going to be uncomfortable.
Bon: I can just stay up all night. It’s something I’ve done a lot on missions. I can just lie down with my eyes closed.


(Bon is snoring. LOL)
Grandfather: He’s so loud.
Grandmother: You said he’s so sensitive, so he can’t just sleep anywhere. If he’s sleeping and even snoring, then he’s sleeping just fine.
AR: Perhaps he was tired?
Grandfather: Yes. Earlier today, he did do some work.


Bon: Joon Hee first. Here!
JH: Whee. Whee. Whee.
Bon: You’re doing so well! Joon Soo, too. Here.
Bon: I’ll do it again for you. Here, Joon Hee.
JH: Brother, you’re doing so well.
Ajumma: Has Ji Sook gone somewhere?
Grandfather: She’s gone to pick some jumbo abalone. Why?
Ajumma: I need to pick some tangerines. Ji Sook is so fast at picking tangerines.
Bon: Shall I help you?
Grandfather: How can we ask a guest to do work like that?
Bon: It’s okay. (to the ajumma) Shall we go?

 


Bon: As a thank you, she gave us some tangerines.
Grandfather: You’ve worked hard, Bon. Wow.
Ajumma: Did Ji Sook go somewhere?
Grandfather: She’s gone to catch some octopus. Why?
Ajumma: We have to collect the drying seaweed, the ones we hung up awhile ago. Ji Sook is so fast at it.
Bon: Shall I help you?
Grandfather: You’ve done plenty with picking the tangerines. You want to do more?
Bon: It’s fine. If you please. (handing over his normal clothes) (to ajumma) Shall we go?


Bon: As a thank you, she gave us some seaweed.
Grandfather: Oh, good. We can have seaweed soup for breakfast. You’ve worked hard, Bon.
Ajumma: Oh, Bon-sshi, since you’re helping out, could you go on the roof -
Bon: Let’s go. Let’s go. It’s the same house from before, isn’t it?
Ajumma: Yes.
Bon: Hurry and come along.
Ajumma: Okay, okay.
Grandfather: He’s a very useful fellow.


Grandmother: Are you really saying that you got him to do all of that?!
Grandfather: Why are you being like this to me? He said that he wanted to do it and went along on his own, so what was I supposed to do?
Grandmother: Oh really.
AR: He’s come from so far, and now he’s also had to suffer.
Grandfather: However, he’s really good at working. There isn’t anything he can’t do.
Grandmother: Huh?
Grandfather: Hey. That person, what does he do? (meaning profession)
Grandmother: She said that he’s someone who works for the sake of the country. But, he apparently can’t get paid or something like that.
Grandfather: You’re saying that he’s unemployed then.
Grandmother: Unemployed?
AR: Well…
Bon: (in his sleep) It’s fine. It’s fine.

 

(part of next scene with JYT reconnecting with the evil guys)
Man: Because I’m not the person you were waiting for, are you disappointed? As yet, that person doesn’t want to meet you.
JYT: Am I so severely lacking?
Man: Remember this. That you’re a man who is already dead. There won’t be forgiveness twice. (handing a cellphone) That person will contact you.
JYT: Please tell (the person) this. Now, I really want to live properly as a human being.

 

 

First, Bon dressed in country ajumma clothes. :lol:  But even then, with his height and build, there is something rather dishy about him. It's hilarious that he's so conked out.

 

As for JYT, I think he's planning a double cross of the evil guys frankly. Too much bonding with Bon for JYT to want to go back to the life of murder and mayhem.

LOL, what they don't tell you is that for the older generation, men, in particular, are looking for a woman that will take care of them like their previous spouse.  My Mom has been approached by several older gentlemen that were not really looking for romance, but something more akin to a friend/housekeeper/cook.  I think for a lot of folks, after having lived with someone for so long, the prospect of living by one's self is a very lonely proposition.

Its pretty interesting that she only felt it was time to move on after she though Bon was dead.

 

I'm not sure if you mean interesting good, interesting bad, or just noticing. However, I could understand why AR was only moving on after she thought Bon was dead. When her husband died, her focus was on just keeping things together. And, at Kings Apartments, she had a support network in place, plus it turns out that her mother had wanted her to live differently than her mother had lived, meaning by succeeding in the big city rather than living in a village.  And, Bon stepped in right when she needed him to in order to look after her children so that she could focus on working and keeping things going. Also, I have to say this, but her husband and she had been drifting. The husband had not been helping AR with her day to day life in the way that Bon has in interacting with her and her children.

 

So, when she thought Bon was dead, it's as if all the restraints she had been putting on herself came out. All the feelings of loss and hurt since her husband had died that she had been too busy to process seems to have come flooding out of her, and ultimately, she needed her mother as she tells J-J.

 

Also despite thinking Bon had died, AR doesn't really have any claims to Bon's life. Meaning that AR would not have been involved with his funeral or disposing of his effects. So, just the news that he was dead and the emptied apartment were her only touchstones.

 

And also, I still think that AR had been developing deep feelings for Bon. Perhaps she wasn't quite aware that they were romantic as yet, but she and Bon definitely had a deep connection, plus Bon was her consistent source of support. So losing even the promise of seeing him again, I can see why she needed to run to someone who was a consistent person of support and comfort in her life, her parents.

Ditto. Though Where Stars Land is my second favorite of all the current Drama offerings.

 

 Third Charm doesn't do it for me anymore, and I just peek into Devilish Joy now and then these days.

Terrius has take top priority (esp with its hilarious moments too, along with its really comfortable  fluidly natural :wub:romance moments. Very nicely put Triplem! :thumbsup:  )

You've made really good points; very well-thought-out.

 

Perhaps there is just one more thing that might have pushed AR into moving:  Bon's death came immediately after the bio-bomb scare at the kids' school.  

 

AR is aware that a lot of spy stuff has been going on but now her kids almost got caught up in it.  She is the only security the kids have now, and she can't lean on Bon if he's dead.  Her KIS friends are great but even they could only help when it came to the hazard at the school because AR told them about the problem; they didn't know ahead of time.  Once Bon is gone, AR can't count on getting that sort of information any more and she can't trust some of the people around her--she knows this especially because she is aware of what happened to the husband of Runny Mascara Mom (sorry, can't remember her name) because he was the one who planted the bomb.  AR would have to be imagining danger around ever corner, and she had to protect her kids.

 

The only smart thing to do would be to get far away to a place of reasonable safety with people she can entrust her kids to.

LOL, what they don't tell you is that for the older generation, men, in particular, are looking for a woman that will take care of them like their previous spouse.  My Mom has been approached by several older gentlemen that were not really looking for romance, but something more akin to a friend/housekeeper/cook.  I think for a lot of folks, after having lived with someone for so long, the prospect of living by one's self is a very lonely proposition.

 

 

LOL, AGREE  :)

1) Not to mention the physical gratification part  - for men esp (not trying to be sexist, just realistic).

It's likely they will hitch up again in 5 yrs (yes I had a client who was seeking female companions 1yr after his wife of THIRTY yrs died. They had an amicable relationship. And Ex-BIL married within 3 yrs, after his wife passed away at 39).

 

My widowed mom (attractive for her ag -  64 then) was also approached within a yr by older gentlemen - some looking at her as a companion, some looking at sizeable assets, a couple were even married(!)  ... but she said NO very firmly each time:

"Been happily  married for over 30 yrs, and that's how I will remain - I have only one husband"

 

2) Psychologically, and even just common sense wise =  it makes more sense that IF folks were happily stable in one relationship ... that they'd even want to try replicate those same emotions by taking a RISK in another stranger so soon.

 

Rather, it'd be more logical that they'd want to cling onto that history for a while, and grieve longer/wrap themselves in happy m'ries cocoon ... for that sharedpast/dead person who they shared those happy m'ries with.

 

It's always the very close and happily married companions who feel that sense of HUGE loss, when one partner leaves first. It's like losing your soul-mate, friend, twin in the relationship who did everything, and talked so much with you. Then s'times they even follow suit which is why very loving spouses s'times die one after another within a couple of years.

 

IF couples weren't that close, a relationship wasn't that tightly knitted  = it wld be more like the Joon-Joon twins and their (absent) dad. He's NOT that missed. And really neither is that relationship.

Sure that same sense of shock/bereavement ... but it wld be much easier to move on. It's only the shared HISTORY that is binding but not the current 'feels' you have with the dead person.

OH MY GOSH!  Just finished watching Wed ep and no sub Thu ep!  This show is racking my brain!  Waaahhh!!!  

Wed's ep was EXPLOSIVE!  Great mixture of everything! 

The much-awaited nose kiss

Bon-Joon moment

BonTae bromance scenes.  JYT never fails to make me laugh. XD

 

I'd like to commend how they revealed the secrets of AR's friends (great editing there), and also let me just commend Im Se Mi on her scene when she thought Bon died.  :thumbsup:  I'm waiting for her other dramatic moment when she learns that the NIS boss she trusts is actually the mole/spy (if my theory is right).

 

I will comment more later on the THU ep.  I don't know why but I clapped when I saw JYT in a suit again. :lol:  Then later on got confused and shocked that he's talking to the bad guy (I thought at first he was meeting the NIS boss).  He chose the bad side again!  Oh no!!! :( But he could be just trying to find out more about the organization.  He is gonna be the spy of the Terius team. :)  



The BTS is funny too!  Plus we get a bonus with SHJ dancing (with no music) :lol: :joy:

Uri is one of about 3 Korean words that I know (and we can thank Because This Is My First Life for this one).  It means "our"

Ah.  Thanks!  Now I got another word on my Korean vocabulary list.  :D

I think too that JYT began to take interest in Mrs Go first bcs of feeling bad abt what happened to her husband .

 

When he got on his knees to ask her to forgive him it was about that too even if she didn't know it. :mellow:

  Reveal hidden contents

IMG_uqgiav.jpg?type=w800

But since his feelings evolved towards this "weird ajumma " as he said as he didn't realized it yet.:(

 

Of course M. Bon or not, that won't lead to nowhere but sadness. Personally I'm afraid to watch the scene she will find out...:tears:
Now especially that he seems to trust them enough. It was cute and funny to see these scenes in hospital

  Reveal hidden contents

but is it weird I still hope though we will still see other sides? (but not very evil either ?) :sweatingbullets:

With main plot turned so intense I could understand we won't see him that much but not definitely & even more not in hospital right away. :bawling:
About K finding him that fast viewers need an answer from writernim indeed but I hope we won't know that trough tragic scene. :bawling: Am I the only one who would miss JYT if that'd happen? :blush:

Plus we need more bromances scenes.:D

 


Oooooh...you are right!  JYT's apology could have also been for the death of her husband.  


During the conversation of AR & Bon on the phone (which JYT interrupted with his tambourine noise), I got a feeling that JYT sensed that there is a romance brewing between the two.  Maybe he was jealous?  Or it could be that he just wants to annoy & bother them because that's his nature. :joy:

 

So we found out how Agent K is able to locate JYT right away.  And it also looks like they have a connection with the police.  

 

But oh nooo....uri JYT is joining the bad guys again! :(  What do you think about that?  I think he will end up sacrificing his life for Bon or AR but he will be happy he chose the right path.  I'm sorry I'm thinking of a tragic ending for our JYT. :(  I'll be sad if it happens but it would be a great redemption for his character. ;)  But it would be better if the writers could think of a way to give him a redemption but still be alive. :)

OMG Chinggu!! You are so spot on!..I hope what you predict next will happen too, even if the nose kiss already made me so giddy right now!!:wub:..we dont have much time since there are 5 eps to go..

 

BTW.. of course Bon is not dead in that bombing..come on Writer nim..who are you trying to fool.....#stillhoping

 

HAHAHA!!  I knew it would happen!  Now, the "almost kiss" has to happen.  They might show it in the teaser/preview if it's gonna be on the next ep.  But since it's only 4 more eps to go and I think AR is gonna be mad at KB for lying about her husband's death.....we'll never know what could happen.  Maybe a surprise/shocking kiss from Bon earlier than expected?!

 

Haha!  I knew that he escaped before that explosion.  My theory that NIS female boss might NOT be the bad guy afterall is being elevated as she might be the one who let Bon escape without the NIS male boss knowing.  She could even be a spy in the Cornerstone/Golden Clover club.

But I have to post this ..I’m dying laughing...Bon doing push ups ( squeals ) & JYT admiring :joy:..I cannot every time he calls Bon - brudder


OTP having nice sweet talk & Guess who touches his tambourine....:lol:

JYT got scolded for it

I swear JYT is hilarious. These past for days every time I say "okay" I immediately think of the way he says it and his finger. Hahaha! :lol: And his constant of calling Bon "Brother" in his broken english. Lol. Some nice comedy here.

 

JYT has always been the jealous type.  He was jealous and demanded AR's attention, then later KB's attention.  And he is even jealous of Bon's muscles!  HAHAHAHA!!!  JYT is hilarious but now he is going to show us his serious side again.  I LOVE IT!!

 

Have you guys seen this blooper?  There's some serious bromance going on here. :lol:  SHJ saying "cut, cut, cut!"  He can't take it anymore!  HAHAHAHA!  :joy:  This clip is even funnier than what aired on the show (it's like an extended clip actually too).  Hope somebody can translate. :D
