[Official] Kookmin Clan

I don't know..... for a person who is very passionate about soccer and pride himself a good player, how can he miss the goal? His reason was he pull back because worry it's a water ball. Maybe to protect his injured ankle, but just got the vibe... maybe he don't want to win so badly? :smirk:

It is not very clear but JK was smiling watching Somin celebrated her winning. 

 

But PD purposely put this solemn face of him as if this is his actual reaction. So misleading. Even KS smiled while watching them.

He definitely smiles and nod after that. It is strange though why they pick Sukjin's team when it's always Kwangsoo vs Jongkook. Besides that, they got the card from Kwangsoo' team. Even the guest said "Did we do something wrong?"

Wow. I'm quite surprise that I'm still a kookmin shipper for this long time and every time seeing them together, it still gives me butterflies. I'm quite down lately with the issue of Somin's haters and how they're growing in a fast rate.

 

But watching these two with subtle caring gestures esp JK, whether JK and Somin are together or not, Somin has friends who'll be there for her in good and bad times. I feel so reassured with just that. I've grown to like and care for Somin more than I thought I would be.

I thought this is just a normal sunset sky post. Turned out to be, he was heading to Busan and pretty sure he snapped this photo while riding KTX.

And this is Somin's IG post from 2 weeks ago. She rode KTX before / after RM Jeju filming. 

 

Usually I will just ignore this since it was taken 2 weeks apart. After all, posting about sunset sky has become his kind of thing. But it is just interesting when he also snap a photo with same vibe (sun, cloud) while riding KTX.

The slap hand game during opening seems so simple but it highlighted two things.

 

1) Somin is just a friend to Sechan

Well, for me, there is no confusion about this. This is just another proof that Somin and Sechan is only friend. Sechan didn't even hesitate to push Somin to face JK in that slap hand match. He knows how strong JK is and how delicate Somin is but that is not a problem for him to ask Somin to face JK:joy:.

 

2) JK's treatment to Somin is different

In that slap hand game, there were Somin and JH. Both ladies are close to him. But how he treat Somin is special. He didn't have any problem to slap JH's hand. But when he had to slap Somin's hand, he hesitated. He even more hesitated when Somin went to 'oppa~~' him. Since when he has mercy for this kind of game? He even didn't give this mercy to Somin when Kookmin still wasn't that close.

 

Somin pulled her hand and made some noise. JK immediately smiled. No need to slap her hand anymore :joy:. His next target was JH again. Now, we can see his normal self. No mercy at all even it is JH, a lady.

This episode doesn't have many kookmin moments. Also, even though some parts are fun, I felt like the episode is boring. Although, it's kinda understandable because the pd seems to want the members enjoy the last episode in jeju.

I have been a silent reader here just because I love Somin's interactions with the OG members and one that caught my interest is with JK himself. It is a different type of interaction and they work well together. 

 

I also agree that RM has become a little...uninteresting in the last few episodes. I don't even watch it through. I mainly skip through it or not watch at all. Could be because of my previous statement (my interest in seeing Somin interact with the OGs) but I've noticed Somin has been pushed to YSC as some sort of safety net. Since they came on the show together I realise they are really good friends. The way I see it if the pd let's everyone be natural and interact freely it will be more fun. Maybe this time they want to cater to certain audiences. I've even noticed their YouTube channel changed to cater to Korean audiences a bit more (since Somin kept getting hate even though she brought in views to that channel too) so from their point of view they want to cater to everybody.

 

The whole hand slapping game reminded me of when JK had to flog Somin (after they had gotten close) and he didn't want to because she was a Dongsaeng he came to adore (or something like that). When previously when he flogged her he didn't show much reaction whilst everyone flinched for Somin.

 

Last thing before I go, I think JK definitely has a soft spot for JSM. I also think they are both very much aware of the age difference esp JK maybe. But like JSK said, they may end up dating each other if they don't find anyone else lol

Spoiler

Not sure whether you guys notice or not but Somin was not really in the mood in this ep. This ep was filmed when the Blackpink chaos broke loose. Plus, if I'm not wrong (correct me if i'm wrong), they filmed ep 527 and ep 528 straight in one day. You remember right, the victim mentality thing plus the chaos by those toxic fans.

 

Throughout the whole episode, Somin was more quiet, less bubbly, even when she smiled, her smile didn't reach her eyes (her beautiful smiling eyes). She wasn't really immersed into her newlywed bride character, unlike during Chusok episode. Though the day was getting darker, she still wore her sunglasses. Seems like, she tried to hide her eyes. And along the episode, though she did secretly look at him, but basically she ignored him. If I'm not mistaken, during the slap game, is the only time she talked to him directly (in this episode) 

 

As for JK, maybe this just me, he seems less cheerful, less talkative too compare to ep 527. I think I haven't heard his belly laugh even once in this episode. And he looked at her a lot.

 

528-1.jpg

Though PD was at the front, he turned his body to the right. Actually, he was smiling  few moments before this photo. His smile instantly disappeared when Somin went into her character and called SC Yeobu. 

 

528-2.jpg

This is after Somin failed to answer any question regarding idiom. He looked to her side while pursing his lips. This maybe me who interprete this scene through Kookmin lenses, but I think he was worried. Based on members reaction, her questions should be easy and she couldn't answer them. When everyone gave some sort of response regarding her answers, only him had serious face. Usually, he will laugh in this kind of situation.

 

498.jpg

This reminds me of this scene. In ep 498, he looked at sick Somin across the room. He worried because while SC wanted to chit chat, JK suddenly cut SC and said they should finish this segment first.

 

528-3.jpg

He turned to look at her quite a lot during bus ride scenes. When the sat in the same row, he turned his body towards her. When he sat at the front row, he kept looking at the back (her direction basically).

I felt like there's something off in this episode. I just don't know what it is but I felt like somin is not fully herself. Also, they didn't sit or stand next to each other, neither had many conversations.

Yes, when they filmed this ep, it was the time when she was attacked by those toxic fans who pretend to be Blinks. And news caught up on this and she became a hot topic.

 

As for why she acted like that... There are type of people (read: me), when we feel very sad or stress and the only thing we want to do is to find a private place tu curl up and cry but at the same time need to put strong face in front of people for a little while more (like in this case, she need to finish the filming), we don't want other people to console us, especially those who are dear to us. Because even a single worry look from them enough to cause us to cry and having a breakdown. If Somin is that type of person and she need to stay strong withinh the filming period, it is understandable why she ignored JK. Because to me, it is noticable that he worried about her.

As for RM haters picking on Somin I feel it's time for something to be done about that. Maybe it's the fan in me but it seems to be getting to Somin and she's a bright and cheerful girl who overthinks a lot (like she acknowledged herself). I know this is a kookmin forum so I will link it to kookmin in a second. 

 

RM were low on ratings for sometime and were about to risk the loss of two main members for the sake of helping the ratings. Somin and SC are a blessing (idc what the haters think). So I feel protecting Somin will be the right thing to do as a permanent member. All this angsty hate is being pinned on her and she is honestly doing an amazing job on the show. She does her best and is consistent with it. The members and pd call her out if she doesn't bring her energy some times. I remember when Somin was being quiet in earlier episodes when she first joined the show as a member JK even said 'aren't you going to work/ or aren't you going to do your job?' Or like 'somin was just doing her job' like I felt they put a lot of expectation on her knowing that she is good at it. Somin even said one time that she will get scolded by the pd if she didn't try her best. (That was a while ago but I won't be surprised if she still felt that pressure to this day). JSK has even called JH out many times for not doing anything so how much more Somin who has to help carry the show.

 

As for the victim mentality comment, I didn't watch the episode but saw the buzz around it. I don't think Somin was close with that guest in the first place and for the pd to air it was a bit...sneaky but then again JSK put it all out there to ease up the tension in a funny way and it kindah helped make it easier to watch. That statement from the guest is not true. It was her opinion and they are not close IRL. It is harsher than if a close friend said it.

 

Somin's expressions say it all sometimes when she's not all the way happy but like a true professional she carries on. Reminds me of when JSJ said in one episode that Somin was in a bad mood and JK seemed very interested to know if that was true but sure enough Somin denied it.

 

I am not a doctor or psychologist but maybe that's why Somin likes to drink a lot. To cope.

 

That being said I've always thought it would be cute for members to openly ship Somin with JK openly because they do have really sweet moments but the hate is enough as it is it won't be fun to see both JK and her targeted. 

 

Sorry for the long post. Just wanted to share my two scents.
