With the recent release of information from the Hong Sisters about their vision of the series I feel they had something in mind and it just grew to something beyond what maybe they had thought it would ever come to.

Now we all know that IU and YJG ad-lib lines in the farewell scene beyond the short 2 sentences in the script.  To me that just shows the Hong Sisters may have lost sight of the relationship between MW and CS.

Yes. To me, it looked like they all had a different vision of the story and the characters. The writers' "Thank you GCS." "Goodby JMW" ending was really... so uninspired. It really makes me think the sisters' may have never been truly, deeply in love in real life. :lol:

 

The conflict among the writers' vision, the actors' vision, and the director's vision may have affected how the story is portrayed because since episode 1, I felt there was something truly lacking, not only physical romance-wise, but how the stories were weaved together. There were times when some scenes were unnecessary, then some important story lines weren't explored well but just briefly shown. I can't explain but the show keeps on trying but then only to quit before they hit the mark, you know what I mean? So it's the first series on my favorite list where I can categorize it as a series that I love, but could have done so much better.

I'm planning on watching Hyori's Bed and Breakfast with IU soon.

 

Hearing you talk so highly of 4 Wheeled Restaurant, I am going to have to find subs for the YJG's episodes.

I will be starting Hyori's homestay after I post this :)

Oooooh Hyori's Bed and Breakfast is good too. It's actually why I got to know about IU and liked her, then from there, I listened to her music. I really like these kinds of variety shows. When HDL came out, I then read about YJG's interests in interviews and I kept going back to IU in Hyori's Bed and Breakfast because you can see how much IU and YJG both like similar things - spacing out, reading books, just staying at home, etc.

 

Connecting all the info from the variety shows they did and interviews made my shipper heart stronger, and look at that, now you can see them in the same frame at BKK airport, so that means they might have come out of the plane at the same time and COULD have been seated close together, or beside each other, and now I'm imagining the room assignment and if they could spend a night each other just talking and developing feelings for one another, and then loving each other, keeping their relationship secret so it's solid and they're happy, and somewhere down the line you'll hear an IU song that talks about a man with a captivating, deep voice who swept her off her feet and everyone will be like, is it about YJG, and she be like so vague about it, until one day they're secure in their relationship enough to admit they're dating and they never break up. :lol: #delusional #butwhatever #iwillshipuntiligetoverit

Or Jin Goo could kidnap IU and drive her to the beach, if he still has that international driver's license. dream dream dream

@realistic2280a and @lightbringer06 oh, you guys going to watch Vagabond?  That was the next series I was thinking about watching.  I need something different from Hotel Del Luna.  I don't like watching sad dramas and I was hoping Hotel Del Luna was going to end on a happier note then the way it actually did.  

 

 

So Happy that majority of the cast got to go on the reward vacation.  Looking at the videos it seems most of the actors don't have bodyguards.  YJG's popularity is pretty hot right now, so glad IU's bodyguard saw him and came to help him out.  IU's staff are really nice.  I wonder if YJG called a staffer or a cast member when he was in the car and was like has everyone come?  And they were like yes, you're the last one.  And someone decided to tell their staff to help fetch him :lol:

 

 

Yup! Will be watching that... ha ha.. I have lots of Kdramas to watch this September. I have two sageuks already. There's all in all 5 dramas already just this month. 

 

Yes, it did seem they don't have bodyguards. Well, usually they have their managers and when they arrived in the airport of that certain country, I think their own security guards do the job mostly. But I guess not in their case. Maybe you're right, YJG could probably be the last one who arrived and then perhaps IU asked her own bodyguard? to go to him..ha ha..I wonder how that played out coz I mean, he should stay beside IU, right^^

Let’s all appreciate this: IU & YJG being in the same frame at BKK airport

 

Oh yeah~!...ha ha...glad to see them together. That's why I am thinking maybe they also sat together in the plane...lol.. at least they didn't think to walk separately :wub:

 

I'm still sad tho coz my second fave guy person Yeon Woo isn't with them :tears:

 

 

@lollyminx ..ugh, the shipping..ha ha...am trying to restrain myself to shipping them but the chains of my shipping heart are starting to get broken...lol. I ship IU with this certain guy, that's why. Heck, I even ship her with Kim Soo Hyun...ha ha.. but her and YJG, there's just something in them that I like but can't explain what... ha ha..

 

Edit: ..here's a video in order of their arrival at the airport in Korea...some are commenting that IU's manager or assistant also helped Mina. Even in real life, IU is the sajangnim..ha ha.. you can hear how IU's bodyguard tells the people to make way when it was both IU and YJG he's escorting^^.

YjG afterall gave an oppa* feel.... protecting the women, no matter how old or young? Hence he walked in the front... they cant be side by side or else, ManChan shippers would go wild.....Hehheee

 

Anyway, im curious... how does tvn decides if a drama gets  a vacation reward* in some but not in others? Is a 10% viewers rating a benchmark? If so, shouldnt YJG's TCC gets a reward vacation as well?

 

Im just curious how tvn just came out of the entertainment scene in the last 10 years and just managed to grab all the good writers/drama plots and make the country's biggest stars to join them? Is the pay higher in tvn compared to kbs and sbs?? It seemed as if tvn appeals to the younger generation with their programmes and less censorship in a way? .... furthernmore kbs n sbs are cutting their drama slots....hmmmm

If I were to guess, maybe aside from the ratings, the profit they got as well? I think HDL is more succesful than TCC because it had more PPLs and therefore, more profit. How can you even PPL in a saegeuk? LOL And also perhaps popularity not only in Korea but abroad as well? That's what I think based on previous series I've watched that got reward vacation (i.e. Goblin, Sky Castle, and HDL).

@berny2 I am sorry to say that Thai drama production companies will only do Eng subs usually when they secure distribution deals. So for example, if I deal is reached with Netflix - there will be subs in several languages. Or if they reach a distribution deal with a specific market - like China, they will add Chinese subs. I think they don’t do it unless they hear from the fans or confirm that there is a demand for the subs etc. 

 

There are plenty if you look... I know musefansub does it.. and you can also find them on kissasian etc.. Thai dramas has a pretty large fanbase haha. I do sometimes watch them too.

I think that is why I felt that suitcase scene was so weirdly edited in ;) It felt off for me.  Don't know if that was a last minute addition to just kind of give filler. 

I agree it did feel kinda off as well. But I just tried to make sense of it and filled in the gaps myself - perhaps MW was really asking for intimacy (she was shown to have looked shy - not very MW-esque behaviour - when CS suggested she couldn't handle him if she takes his clothes off) so perhaps she also thought since everything is coming to an end, she'd like to make "more memories" with him. But CS being CS, probably knows that it will get even harder for them if they crossed the line. Maybe he's not so worried for her, maybe he's worried that he will really be unable to let her go.

 

Argh I still have issues with the ending even though I know what the Hong Sisters are getting at. 

 

I've already started on OCN Strangers from Hell. I need something to slowly let go of HDL. And the new TVN drama on supermart? Totally watching that too.

I'm watching Strangers from Hell too. It's getting me out of the romance vibe. :lol: And Cheap Cheonlima Mart is also on my list. I think. It's actually the only one I'm looking forward to since I need me some slice of life, drama, comedy series.

In my mind, if CS was there to comfort MW before moving on like what they're doing with the other ghosts, satisfying their needs that weren't met when they were alive, I don't see why CS was not able to grant what MW wants. HAHAHAHA but yeah, I also get what the writers' goals were, still doesn't mean I accept it fully.

imagine the potential Soo Hyun-Chan Seong bromance here:

 

 

in this one, Kim Min Jae reincarnates as Yeo Jin Goo? Hehe. Seriously, this drama would be so fun to discuss. The theories we can come up with this:

I saw that video this morning and thought it would be interesting if it went this way, Goblin, Devil, Grim Reaper, Jang Man Wol, all of them. Very interesting. :lol:

Does video quality have an effect on looks? Coz Chan Seong looks more handsome in youtube clips than when I was watching him in the full drama. Should I have watched at the highest resolution? Hehe

I totally get what you are saying about the show.  

 

I love K-Variety shows.  I enjoyed Family Outing back in the day.  Granted that was more scripted but they were hilarious on that show.  Made me really admire Lee Hyori but for whatever reason when her Bed and Breakfast show came out I never really bothered to tune in.  I didn't even bother for season 2 when I'm a SNSD fan and Yoona was going to be on the show :sweatingbullets: I couldn't bother to try and track down subs for the show...I guess feeling lazy.  

 

I guess you've done your research on IU and YJG :D I think it would be nice if they became good friends.  Maybe YJG could ask for advice from IU on poetry writing.  I mean writing songs is sort of like poetry.  And was it you or another soompier that provided information that YJG always wanted to write poetry but in the end loose his nerve to put his words down.  But it seems Hotel Del Luna has inspired him as he started to pen his thoughts down in his Instagram posts.

 

@aria26

Those mashup drama videos seem fun.  Unfortunately, I haven't seen any of the series other than Hotel Del Luna.  I'm making my way to Goblin.  But I think I have to take a break from any potentially sad dramas and watch something fun or different before I go down another roller-coaster ride of emotions.

There's actually none. Uri HDL cast is not good at the Instagram game. Hahaha but that's ok because they might be enjoying themselves indoors :lol: I only saw photos of their staff swimming by the pool this morning. It wasn't raining but it wasn't sunny either.

 

Oh and IU's manager posted photos of like a Korean town or like a space where there are many Korean restaurants. He posted it before dawn. Most of the restaurants were closed. lol but that's it.

Thanks for the translated version of the scene.... i think IU had more things to say than JG... CS wasnt saying much, just agreeing and comforting MW. CS can only hug her.... not much tears there... 

 

Its great to hear HDL's ost is well received! I think the drama have more songs that i like compared to previous dramas.

 

CONGRATULATIONS HDL!
