@YongZura⁷ Haha really? I get lunch with my labmates all the time, can't say I know what their favorite dishes are though. I dont even know/remember what some of closet friends' favorite meals are haha. So for me, I thought it was pretty suspicious that the Chief knows all of that about the investigative team members. lol

 

Nah... it's fine (I guess I'm influenced by other kdramas too)  I love the scene whenever the team discussed a case ... sometimes I can't see who's the higher rank officer is because the way they communicate with each other and listen to everyone's opinion.

One is SBS and one is TVN so we can expect something more like the tongue kiss :lol:

pouring some water on the hotness that people might be feeling:

 

Corona Times people... am not sure how much kissing would they agree to given that we have had two!

 

If the preview (episode 11) showed Luna posing as JTE then is everyone ready for some angst?

 

>Post script: I cant read everything that I have missed but you guys are funny :)<

@Heretorant Lol, so glad you actually saw him and even got pictures! i am still sad to this day! I was so close to Huntington Beach. And..I missed him!! And to make it worse, my cousin was like “there were so many people there.” And I looked at her and said “and why are you telling me all this right now?!!” :bawling: oh, the heartbreak!

I know the feeling as i also lost the chance in New Zealand. I was there and he suddenly landed there for a commercial filming. I was on the other side of the country to where he landed. So yeah i kinda know the feeling but others i know managed to see him there 

 

at least u still saw him :D my chance was gone the moment he left Huntington Beach :bawling:

LMH looks soooooo mighty fine already, more so in uniform. :wub: Would those stills mean that JTE did not die, at least not yet? Based on those stills though, I feel like the last scene that was shown happened past after the preview? They have a knack in misleading us through their edits. :joy:

 

I couldn't keep up with how fast this thread is moving, but I really enjoy reading everything.. hoping all of you are having a good morning/night while waiting for the Swoon upload :blush:

 

Edited:

 

I just have one question though, why not cook before putting on the uniform? It would be too bad if that super clean uniform gets stained while cooking. LOL  Hahaha maybe we will get the answer tomorrow. :lol:

OMG exactly we just spent like 50 pages on
1. Ono is Luna going to pose as JTE? Aw no way LG will see through it!
2. Nooo pls don't die JTE
3. How does time travel work? Mathematicians send help

4. Please insert a bed scene

Premier with sub in 21 minutes? Countdown (Putting the reminder ON)

 

 

Time to see who’s the true king of Jenga as THE KING: ETERNAL MONARCH stars Lee Min-ho, Kim Go-eun, Woo Do-hwan, Jung Eun-chae, and Kim Kyung-nam give their all for the game. They have their eyes peeled for special Jenga blocks in this upgraded version with new rules, and no one is escaping the missions—bring on the aegyo, TMI, and royal declarations!

They probably released the photos just to get us to shut up.

 

Seriously, the internet was busy having an online funeral for her hahahaha.

 

I'm surprised she didn't bring a bag of chicken with her when she got presumably kidnapped and attacked.

Omo!! New stills! He looks so sexy in those uniform clothes! :w00t: Seeing that JTE has a bandage on her head, he came in time to save her! Whew!!!
 

But Peyha, that’s a lot of food just for the two of you! Please don’t waste it with just one bite only! Please!! Unless you two decide to do something else...oops...:vicx::vicx:


@Geolyvseven you asked for gin and juice? Coming right up!! :D :lol:

@gwin sorry, I accidentally tagged you up there. Thought it was you asking for gin/juice but I backtracked and tagged the correct person second time around. Already fixed the mistake :D

he time spent on investigating is my biggest complaint with this show.  Especially since in most of the episodes after the first one, these scenes usually are shown in the first half of the show!  Some of instances which peeved me:

 

1.   The Lee Sang-Do case was started way back in the first episode.  And yet it was only resolved in Episode 9.  That is waaay too long.

2.   The scene where SJ and JTE tried to entrap that lady who stole a wallet.  Way too much screen time given for what?  Just to introduce the psychiatrist of SJ at the end of that scene?

3.   Scene where Jangmi, SJ and JTE was looking for the murder weapon in the junkyard.  Again unnecessary.

4.   That scene of them chasing a criminal right after JTE went back to Korea from Corea.  It's only purpose is for JTE to have that voice over about time passing and her feelings changing.

5.   The worst is the stake-out with JTE and Jangmi in the car and those product placements.

 

And these are just the ones off the top of my head!

 

Agreed

Hi @CallieP. That was me. 

 

Re CH - There were two interviews, as I recall. One was with LMH and the other one with the Director himself.  In LMH's interview, this is what he said:

 

Q:You have decided very early that you wanted to act in this drama. Is there any difference between the Yoon Sung that you’ve imagined, and the one that is now presented in front of the audience? 

A: At the very start, I imagined this character to be more depressed, a dark person who met Kim Nana, and started working at the Blue House, and gradually got cheerful. But in reality, it progressed in a totally opposite direction (laughs). While working with the director, I learn that an action drama fails very easily, so it must be supported with romance, that’s why there were many quarrels scenes added at the start of the drama.

 

The original source is http://ent.sina.com.cn/v/j/2011-08-10/09443382464.shtml and was translated  here - https://thoughtsramble.com/2011/08/12/lee-min-ho-expresses-regrets-at-the-incomplete-love-in-city-hunter/

 

The Director's interview mirrored what LMH said above and he was laughing cos LMH was questioning why there were more romance than originally intended.

 

Re GB - did you know that there is a a different cut for the Chinese version of the movie? It included more scenes of LMH, further development in the relationship between him and his love interest played by Kim Seol-hyun, PLUS an alternate ending.

 

 

 

 

I knew there was an alternate ending , more scenes with his love interest and less violence, I think. I was hoping to see the Chinese Version, also the poster was different. It is such a shame that that was the time Hallyu was banned and they never got to see it. 

 

So it is funny that LMH wanted more action, thanks for sending the link. Appreciate it.

Beautiful Mathematics of “The King” (Part 2)

 

 

Between zero and one

 

Lee Gon has been mentioning the phrase, “between zero and one.” But what exactly is the significance of being between zero and one?

 

In episode 3, part 43:16, Lee Gon wrote mathematical formulas on the windows of his hotel suite.

 

 

 

A viewer seeing this could easily feel intimidated and just dismiss it, but the second line of this mathematical jargon is quite an interesting part.

 

  Reveal hidden contents

It has two major parts (or functions), which can be denoted as:

 

Cxi8GT8.jpg

 

The first function, A, takes the natural logarithm of n, while B is the sum of the series of 1/n. Note that these two functions are different in nature.

 

For some analogy, we can think of A as Lee Gon and B as Tae Eul – they come from very different backgrounds, from two different worlds.

 

If these two functions are plotted on the same graph, it would look like this:

 

 

 

The behavior of these two functions is quite interesting. They have different natures, as A is based on the natural logarithm, while B is a sum of a series, but their trajectories are very much similar. With increasing n, they somewhat behave like parallel lines.

 

We can think of this as an illustration of the lives of Lee Gon and Tae Eul. In their own worlds, they have their own different lives. But it seems that through time (with increasing n), they are pretty much going in the same direction, like parallel lines. But the sad thing about parallel lines is that they would never meet.

 

In Mathematics, limits of functions are taken to determine the eventual value such function. For simplicity, it can be thought of as, through time, what value can we expect from such function. For functions A and B above, their limit is infinity, that is, they have no limit - they increase indefinitely with increasing n. In other words, the functions diverge.

 

VMNsKKC.png

 

As Lee Gon and Tae Eul have their own lives in their own worlds, through time, they diverge.

 

The original mathematical statement that Lee Gon wrote actually took the limit of the combined functions. In terms of A and B, it could be simply written as:

 

E4Iu5qR.png

 

If the combined function, A-B, is plotted, it would look like this:

 

 

 

What this statement and graph say is that the limit of the combined function, A-B, is between 0 and 1. As the graph illustrates, the function somewhat stabilizes between 0 and 1. In other words, the combined function converges, between 0 and 1.

 

Lee Gon and Tae Eul may have different lives, and when left on their own separate worlds, they diverge. But when together, they converge, between 0 and 1.

 

Also, in the place between 0 and 1, Tae Eul plants the seeds of imaginary flowers from the Kingdom of Corea. With no wind, rain, nor time, the seeds may never bloom; just as her and Lee Gon coming from different worlds, they may never be together. But she had faith enough as she sows the seeds of their love, and with that love, they would eventually converge between 0 and 1.

The mathematical statement that Lee Gon wrote is rather intimidating, but when analyzed, it gives the story much more depth and meaning. Writer Kim Eun Sook is brilliant in leaving this rather insightful clue in the form of a mathematical statement, which has a solution and an answer that are both beautiful.

 

part 1

 

Did you get Beautiful Mathematics from someone or did you do it all on your own?  If you did, wow, I am impressed are you a Math student or did you graduate with a Math degree or something? Your knowledge is very deep and  you are very observant .

 

Kudos to KES to make that up too. She must have a science background as well and so detailed oriented.  As for me I am Liberal Arts so don't know how to read the formulas. :D:D

On LOTBS, I think LMH was great there, like @CarolynH did not realize he could be so funny as well. And his expression when he went to rescue his dad was phenomenal  as well.

And then just before she dies she's like "Lee Gon, I'm gonna add one more to the 17 things I told you about. Eat this chicken after I die //whips out BBQ chicken from nowhere"

ok though great no need for online funeral!!! ahhhhh

Lee Rim will shoot her in the heart, but she'll be saved last min because she's got the little baggie of kimchi in her pocket.
