      live adaptation has been a surprise.. they have maintained BL feel which is great and actors are too good..awesome chemistry..

    I think he was interested in her and approached her through a mutual. I don’t think it’s very uncommon for young idols like Suzy to get approached by older A-listers for a date or two.

    They probably went out once or twice, but got ratted out before anything really serious could happen 😂

Nooooooooo.. why? it was a love marriage…not even 2 years old.. why??????
Everyone says both are so intelligent, how could you not work out your differences. At times, having an option to divorce is just providing an easy excuse to not work on relationships. Which parent gives up on his kids because they turned out bad…unless there was torture involved, you don’t divorce.. I hate this.. And I hate when people use this as convinient route to “free” themselves

    They don’t have kids. And there’s really no way for us to know whether they took the “easy” and “convenient” way out or whether this divorce was absolutely needed.

    In any case, I honestly feel it is better to get divorced even if you have children. Show them that they don’t need to drag on something that’s dead, in some cases, something that is abusive just to meet society’s ideas of what works and what doesn’t. Do what’s right for you – that’s the lesson we need to teach kids.

      Divorce is mostly an easy and convinient way.. just because you know you have the option to walk out, people walk out

      Like i said, why not give up on your kids, parents .. today people don’t know how to treat a marriage..
      m pretty sure neither was abusing the other mentally or physically or financially or emotionally.. just because you don’t like 1 thing,learn to compromise.. marriage is not a fling that if the other doesn’t suit your taste then you move onto next

      I am not talking about them having children.. i am talking about mentality of people..
      parents don’t have the option to walk away from their kids.. so they don’t..
      earlier people gave their everything to make marriage work..

      but today, everything is about convenience.. marriage should be respected for what it is.. a lot of people stress about a lot of things in today’s life, but they persevere where there is no option to quit..but marriage has become a joke for today’s generation

        @alasecond – I get what you’re saying but I can’t agree. It’s so easy for outsiders to comment on others’ personal affairs, but much harder to be the person actually going through something. Rather than respect “marriage”, I hope people can respect themselves and as @snarkyjellyfish rightly points out, divorce isn’t an easy decision.

        13
        2

          That is the whole point..
          It is not about commenting on how one’s life is..

          everyone has problems.. and pain is pain..when you hurt, you hurt..
          but giving up has become the norm now a days …
          and marriage isn’t about “me” or “you”.. the concept of “we” has to be the priority.. and in garb of finding one’s happiness etc people just promote divorce as a quickie..

          Might as well give people clean chit to go out marry, then have extra marital affairs because they really found love again.. it is the same logic as when people start arguing that a stay at home mom’s life is useless and unless she is out their in some corporate she isn’t living her life..

          Divorces should be rare.. don’t marry if there is so much that one doesn’t respect about onself and realizes that after marriage

          1
          1

            A lot of the things that couples don’t agree on aren’t things that they could predict before marriage. I worked with divorce attorneys for a time – even in the short marriage divorces I saw the decision was never made lightly. Many times it was down to one party hiding things from the other, or the one party changing or showing a new face after marriage that led to divorce. it’s common these days to present one face to the world and be another in private — something that a potential partner may not be able to know until after marriage. Sometimes ones worldviews change after marriage – that also cannot be predicted. But even with those things, never ever have I seen a decision to divorce made lightly.

            Choosing to end a marriage is not something that one does because they’re too lazy to find a solution to their problems. It’s something people do because there is no other option. Staying together just because you got married is not a good choice. There is nothing good about two people who merely tolerate each other living together. I know it because I lived with it growing up.

          @snarkyjellyfish well if you say so..
          i guess i have seen a more varied sample set of divorces and no.. even if they seem to be “irreconcilable” differences, they are not

          0
          1

            I just think that unless you’re actually a part of the marriage or inside the situation, you can’t tell whether or not the differences are actually “irreconcilable”. Most people don’t talk about what the factor is that caused them to end their marriage because that is a deeply personal and private thing that is only the business of the two people in the partnership. So what may seem as a divorce for stupid reasons on the outside is usually for something much deeper than what that person may let on to.

      As someone whose parents stayed together for the kids, I second this. Maybe divorce seems like the easy option from the outside, but it’s never easy for two people who are married to decide to split up. I don’t want to talk about my parents, but I saw it happen to my cousin last year – she fought for her marriage, but no matter how hard she tried he didn’t have any respect for her. His family was even awful enough to suggest they have a baby to solve their issues. So now she’s 29 and divorced. That sucks, that especially sucks as a desi woman. Divorce is not a decision that people make lightly, especially, I would think, for two people with such high public profiles.

        Have a baby to solve the issues? That’s such an Indian/South Asian/ Asian suggestion. *facepalm. I hope things look up for your cousin soon, snarky!

          Me and my cousin go to boxing classes together now and I think she’s doing so much better. It feels like she’s finally coming back to being herself, and I’m happy to see that. Her parents are pretty old school too, but they know that she deserved better, and respected her choice and were there for her every step of the way.

          I have seen way too many people having kids to fix their marriage. It really seems like south Asian go-to move to fix marital problems. It messes things up even more and my heart just breaks for all the kids brought up in that situation.

          5
          1

            It’s just…such a bad move. My parents didn’t hate one another, but they were two people who should not have stayed together after having kids. We had a good childhood but in retrospect I see how it affected me subconsciously. I see and understand some things now that I didn’t before, and it makes me so sad sometimes. Unfortunately divorce is so taboo in South Asian culture that it’s better to put a fake face than to admit that things don’t work and it’s so unhealthy and leads to more problems.

        Well.. kids shouldn’t be brought if a stable, safe environment can’t be provided..

        I am completely deviating from the topic.. but do you think poor people who are struggling ot survive should have kids?

        0
        1

          I think it depends on the parents. It’s just fact of life, happy parents raise happy kids. Happy family is not about money it’s more about how you deal with poverty. I was raised in piss poor family, with four kids. Although our situation got better as I got older, I still look at the times we spent piss poor fondly.

          1
          1

            I definitely agree with this. My mum comes from a poor family too. She had four siblings so they were five kids in all. and frankly, she does say that her family could have managed better if they just stuck with two. But at the end of the day she and her siblings have fond memories together and she wouldn’t trade it for the world.

    I will say this, my relationship with my husband is veeeeeeery different than my relationship with my child. My role is to parent my child, not my husband. And so theoretically, I would treat “bad” children very differently than “bad” spouses.

    1

      and that is where i kind of digress.. family is family.. the moment one starts thinking that there is a way out, one starts to look for that subconsciously.. instead of trying to really put in their best..

      I am ofcourse not talking about extreme, serious cases.. but mostly amongst new couples.. i see this a lot.. married after college, one went for MBA and two years down they divorced.. or even finding someone in office.. or getting bored in another country when they already knew who they are marrying..

      and these are not as trivial as they sound.. people struggle.. but that is still not good enough to go looking for second chances in case of marriage.. it is not a job that one switches at whim

      Also, not sure how is it really like in the west because people seem to take marriage very callously

      U need to tell me where to go shopping 🙂

        Cheap places: MongKok, Jordan (famous for its Night Market) and Sham Shui Po (famous for its second hand/ vintage electronics. I don’t know if you’ll be interested but I recommend to check out ^^). But beware of store owners trying to cheat you off your money! Try to hackle for a much lower place, they usually allow $10-20 below the price presented (if you can, try to go $50 but it’ll be risky). If you want to go shopping for high end stuff (ie. Gucci, Chanel, etc..) Go to Tsim Sha Tsui (if you are familiar when GOT7 came to HK, the Big Ben imitation is found here close to the Star Ferry Pier and is next to the Walk of Fame) and Central!

        Hope you have a great time here! 🙂

Ques: Is American media struggling with why or how a super handsome man is not sex crazy, not a bad boy, and not someone promoting morality of convenience? Why is V introducing himself as “I’m not a bad boy”?

    I can honestly say I do not know why he is saying “I’m a good boy” other than it’s super cute and endearing!!!

    1

    I thought the media had transitioned to the “cute boys” generalization when they realized asking them about girls and other such things resulted in too short/bland answers. I had assumed that when V introduced himself as a “good boy” it was a reference to GD and Taeyang’s song. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time a Big Bang song inspired an obsession with saying a particular English phrase in Korea.

      nah too random.. after years of debut ..
      nah! it’s totally an american thing.. like how american agencies must be trying to force fit their model on these boys.. but well it just doesn’t fit.. they aren’t the rockstars with a glamourous life of free choices with no responsibility..

      they are products of their culture which isn’t American as americans are products of their culture which isn’t asian

      1
      1

        Bigbang is basically iconic in Korea so it actually isn’t too far-fetched of an idea for people to still be quoting their songs years after they were released. Kids still love yelling out “You’re a loser~” or “Bangbangbang” even though both those songs came out half a decade ago. Plus, “good boy” is generally a term used in America when speaking about your dog or child, not boy groups, so I kind of doubt V’s use of it is American influenced.

        Although there are still a lot of issues with American coverage of BTS, I actually thought they’ve been very kind to BTS (at least for this round of promotions). BTS is lucky that because they are from a foreign country and aren’t mainstream they get the royal guest treatment all the time. Normally, since the American entertainment world is the most toxic and cut-throat in the world, the media would be like hounds trying to make a scandalous headline out of them. Anyway, I don’t think anyone’s trying to force a model on them when they literally know next to nothing about them. Also, no matter how they come across in their music videos, it’s just plain impossible to call them “bad boys” when they have bubblegum colored hair and do finger hearts lolol It’s undeniable though that American media is having a lot of trouble figuring out how to handle the BTS situation since the language and K-Pop culture factor is so different from what they are familiar with.

So many clichés, one half of me does not want to appreciate the commercial obviousness of these scenes but the other half is the precise consumer target segment that Russo brothers are targeting with Endgame.
1. All women against the most deserving villain – I mean! Yeah.. This was shot after wakanda
2. He who starts, must end! — and if you watch the Jimmy show now, you know Scarlett gave the biggest spoiler in history of spoilers.. But nobody knew.. But you know, the one she was looking at when she said it, knew!.. That person knew! 🙂 …
3. Well!.. Guess they never could find the right origin story
4. The originals!.. Will miss
5. They really did go with Mackie… I honestly wanted Sebastian.. But whatever (shoutout to Tom Holland’s fans 😛 )
6. So, again .. Why did we need marvel in the first place?
7. I’m not crying.. No.. No.not at all
8. Future is clear: Guardians 3 is lined up and we can be sure about who is guest starring
9. LASTLY, oh so many end scenes were spoilt.. And have been around since infinity war or before.. It was interesting

i don’t know if i still want to believe that Kang Seung mo killed the women , set fire maybe.. because this was the obvious red herring from the very beginning and i am sure many had that theory – them not showing the man pulling the body into bathroom, his smile when he fell off the window with the psychometric kid… the lighter obviously being taken from dad’s bag to frame him in hope police will catch him.. But I hope there is still some twist in there

    I’m confused too.
    If I had to make a guess, I was thinking he’s the real painter… Or our heroine is, then the male lead and the idol both fall in love even more with her once they find out the truth . Or would that latter theory be too ridiculous?

      Can’t be the heroine though. Otherwise she wouldn’t have bid to buy her own painting for $27,000

      I think best bet is our male lead or male lead’s mom who left him. He and Shi an are step brothers – but i am not sure if their father is common or mom.. if both have same mom, then i would understand why male lead hates shi an that much

      lol..i just hope one gets some meatier role this time.. it would be fun to see idol taking interest in his fan (or two.. no wait three for what we know of)

      and i am loving the crazy boss.. in every show now she has played a different character.. and i like this crazy interpretation with a hint of meryl streep’s cold insults from prada.. boss is a total bitc
