BinJin Timeline (Part A): (Based on facts or sightings reported by Koreans/Korean Medias and not based on fan imagination that’s for sure)   2003: HB attended YJ ‘One Moment to Remember

WOW, apparently when you leave to go on an ice-cream, crying, CLOY-rewatch, drinking binge post Baeksangs, you come back to 40 new added members and 40 new pages of content, PLUS a million new species

Hi all,    I was introduced to CLOY January of this year, and was instantly hooked and binged watched all available episodes and eagerly awaited every weekend when new episodes are released.

I feel the North Korea part is well written.  The second part is not well planned, so the writers just based on BinJin


@Maggie Ruff Why I love CLOY so much is that there’s many layers to it. The more you watch the more things you uncover. Like the parallel theme that the writer and director put in. 

 

The same themes/scenes in NK happen in SK too. It’s woven so seamlessly into the storyline and acting so it’s not obvious initially! There was a good IG clip shared previously here which showed these scene comparisons but doesn’t seem to be working anymore so if someone has a link they can share it would be great.
 

Examples:  

(1) when Captain Ri rescues YSR at the end of episode 1, it is mirrored in the SK carpark scene.

(2)The bbq/eating scenes with the squad in both NK and SK

(3) their hospital scenes

(4) the front gates and the road up to their parents houses.

(5) The seating positions of the couple side by side during their bonding moments, always the same (she’s on the left, he’s on the right). 
(6) the parallels between their mothers and respective interactions with the couple.
There are more examples.

 

So respectfully I disagree with your comment about the 2nd part not being well planned. To be able to pull off the parallel theme i believe it was all deliberately planned from the start. There was high attention to detail in this drama. 
 

PS sorry for the long post, I probably have watched CLOY more times than is healthy lol

Here's another great news about CLOY's performance in 2020, this time in SK report. If I understand it correctly, its ranking the online video views of Kdramas in SK. Though in 2020 CLOY ranked #3 (124mil) after TWOM (220mil views) and Once Again (183mil views), if we take CLOY's 2019 episodes in Dec, total CLOY view is actually 191mil means it ranks #2!!!

 

Big congrats to CLOY!! We also have news from :
- Japan - CLOY part of Top 10 trend words in 2020
- Singapore - top Google and Yahoo search TV drama in 2020
- Philippines Inquirer and other media top list Kdrama

- Asian Academy Creative Best Drama Grand Prize

Etc etc etc! CLOY is winning GLOBALLY! Waiting for more year end list and rankings, which I am sure CLOY will also be at the top!

 

 

 

 

Also here's a rare video of HB taken by this person who was lucky enough to see HB during his/ her trip to Seoul last year. This must be around MOTA time from his hairstyle.

 

 

 

 

And here's the CLOY impact in the biggest online video market!! USA!

 

CLOY is at #2!!

 

 

 

And HB making his mark in Indonesia too!! 
Hyun Bin ranked 5th for the 10 Most Popular Figures on Google 2020 in Indonesia

@LavenderVirgoagreed with your opinions on Cloy there, but to me the writer already had the vision how things will lay out such as they had in mind that will be 16 episodes.  It just many details in the second part that leave a lot of desires.  For ex, captain Ri in NK is very capable to handle any situation. But in SK, he was so naïve to go a meeting and left Seri alone.  At the hospital, when they don't let him stand at the door, he just went out side and look up the window, without thinking what to do to protect Seri from her brother.

Question why some of you are scared if some BinJin fans post their own theories re holding hands while camera is not yet rolling? Let them be. Don't bring up their posts here if it bothers you. Because it seems to me this will trigger an in-ship war again within your fandom. To be honest when i saw that particular bts of CLOY i kinda believe they were really holding hands. That's just me.

@Maggie Ruff Right I understand what you mean, I had put it down to him being a fish out of water in their respective location and also she said she was safe in SK because it’s her turf.
 

The parallel theme was great but also would have restricted some of the storyline. Him being outside the hospital, also mirrored what she did in NK.

Hi Guys, I created this account just to ask why Son Yejin's Best Actress Nomination is not being actively promoted? Has she been declared the winner already or is there a voting strategy behind this? I thought she's not nominated at first, but when I clicked the link for Best Actress in Metrodotstyle's twitter account, she's in the list. Am I mistaken?

Binjin & CLOY being at the top of the Google lists!! I must say congratulations to all the BinJin shippers for making that happen because I’m sure there was a lot of us googling them this year. I sure googled more YouTube videos than ever before. Before BinJin, never!

Because it seems to me this will trigger an in-ship war again within your fandom. To be honest when i saw that particular bts of CLOY i kinda believe they were really holding hands. That's just me. 

There is a reason why some shippers get triggered with this hand holding incident...It taught us that as fans even if we believe in certain things, we should still be careful ... especially if it could lead to questioning of their professionalism or image..And when such controversial topics can be easily avoided, i don't get the necessity to bring back them in the picture time and again.

 

If you have time you can check posts on 16-17th Feb in this forum..

Another hand holding pic was circulating here.Many shippers already sensed that it was not going to end well ..While others laughed it off that how big of a deal it is to hold hands on a set..

Then next day in the most unexpected circumstances, the harshest denial came..I m not even remotely interested in quoting the words that their agencies said..It was hurtful:tears:.

And do you know why it bothered us the most?? .. because unlike other rumours their professionalism was at stake this time. 

 

It was a difficult time for us to deal with.. That's why many shippers (even if they believe that the incident was true), they don't bring back this issue again ..

 

We are thankful that Baeksang happened and the air was cleared with tonnes of other reciepts.. However expect their agency to strike again if it means protecting them.. Don't know if shippers can survive this time..(I don't mean that BJ is not real but if another denial happens to protect their interest, it would be bad news for us shippers)

 

Korea's cancel culture is really toxic.. Celebrities are persecuted over  edited pics, fake stories without even waiting for proper explanation. One unintentional move and their entire career can be jeopardized..Just see how Hb's name was just mentioned regarding golf in a chat but his character assassination was done by K-netz.. That's why Vast had to issue warnings back in January...

Few things that may appear trivial to us can blow up big in Korea.. That's why we better not be complacent and take everything for granted..As responsible fans we should know when to not cross the line.:)

Just to give you another example:

Spoiler

Few days ago rumours were floating around that Binjin went to Daegu during Chuseok holiday..Again it is one of those incidents based on hearsay..It may be true and may not .. whatever u choose..Now where does the problem comes from??...Korean Government strictly advised  people to not travel during Chuseok.. That's why i refused to believe that story because Binjin won't defy government guidelines..

However some people did believe and it was widely discussed in soc-med..Good for those who thought it was true.. However if by chance this rumour reached k-media, netizens would have eaten them alive.. because they are the idols of their country and going against COVID guidelines is heavily condemnable..

I m okay with people interpreting  situations the way they want but if it is something controversial, better do it privately in a group rather than post it for the whole world to see..Just my two cents..

 

Edit: i don't think that insta post was brought here to cause a war .If you check it ,one forum member posted the insta link here because she BELIEVED it and wanted to share this info.. However rest of the members when checked the link, they didn't agree with the O.P and were giving reasons why it was wrong..I don't see anyone intentionally bringing posts from outside soompi to bash them..If not for that link we wouldn't have known that this is circulating in soc med.

Another media voted HB & YJ are the HOTTTEST COUPLE...periodt :wub:

 

Almost all of the Naver CLOY articles have this sentence/phrase...

 

"..TVN's Crash Landing on Love, w/c received attention for the perfect romance breath of Son Ye Jin & Hyun Bin."

Remember HB's statement that he wants to act with YJ again in a rom-melo drama "breathing the same air” with her!

 

 

This is one of my fav swiss bts Can we see a HAPPY SMILING PLAYFUL HB spinning YJ which shy reserved HB doesnt do it with his previous co-stars.  

 

673-D846-E-3-D92-44-EE-91-FD-40929761-D9

 

I loved how HB always swagging YJ and looking happy contented :rolleyes:

With Google releasing its top ranked list worldwide and by country, we are getting more and more CLOY top ranking news!

Here's a summary of the top ranking list that CLOY is listed so far. I am sure more and more will be added!

 

 

 

 

Here's the one for Google Philippines. Unsurprisingly, CLOY is ranked #1!  

 

 

 

 

 

Besides that, HB is ranked #3 for most-searched male personality in Phil. And for most searched Korean personality, HB is #1 and SYJ at #7. Well done Binjin and CLOY!!

Looking at the soju scene on the link above made me remember how I loved this scene. During this scene, our tough Captain Ri was showing his inner self. Using soju as an excuse, he blurted out his deepest secret: that he wanted to have a future with Se Ri. It took him a lot to confess this because of his background. If he was a Southern Korean, or Se Ri was a Northern Korean, things might not be that complicated alas...

 

I loved that during this scene, both Hyun Bin and Ye Jin were able to communicate Captain Ri and Se Ri feelings not only through their dialogues but also through their micro expressions. Every glance, every movement, everything was heavy with emotions. I could repeat this scene over and over, but each time I would cry and then my partner would tease me to no end.

 

I am not a macho guy like Captain Ri but I think we share some degree of stubborness. This often makes it hard for me, and for him, to be honest with our deepest feelings. So this scene really stroke chord with me. Kudos for Hyun Bin and Ye Jin for their whole hearted delivery!

 

Plus, Hyun Bin looked unbelievably cute with his hair style and outfit! Cute yet vulnerable, yet manly. Sigh. Ok I need to stop here lol.

@gayyoxx this scene is sooooo heart melting and I know they are great actors but this scene gosh felt so real. Here I see BinJin couple, not Cpt Ri or Seri. 
 

My excuse for watching the same scene a few times, was because I couldn’t see the English subtitles through my tears.
 

BinJin look what you did, our poor puffy eyes :lol:
