With all the posts about Fight My Way I can\’t decide whether I now feel like I don\’t even need to watch it or if it\’s making me want to watch it more LOL 😛 What\’s good/bad about the show?

    I don´t actually watch that show, I already have 3 and it is enough. But sometimes the recaps do make me want to take a peek.

    Good:
    – The main couple, their history, their relationship and chemistry, and also them as characters, together and individually, are just fantabulous
    – Shenanigans
    – The epilogues
    – Tertiary characters
    – Background music
    – fight scenes lol
    – relatively good handling of flashbacks to build character development

    Bad:
    – Some of the passing of time and choices of scenes to show when is a bit jerky? Like it jumps between times and scenes sometimes too abruptly imo, and doesn’t flesh out or finish a scene completely (usually with everyone but our mcs) It doesn’t affect the overall story, it’s just kinda more annoying as a viewing experience. ((But it could be a stylistic choice of editing, one I clearly don’t seem to prefer haha))
    – I need more on the secondary couple to really love them. They gave us a bit more this week but their scenes can get boring, and as much as I love the second lead I want to shove a hot rod up her spine at times.
    – Hye Ran is a bitch. And kinda seems to be there just to be annoying and get in our OTP’s way at the moment… which yeah.
    – I’m realising there is still a lot of resolution and story to be covered and or uncovered and I’m hoping they have enough time for it all. But they’ve done ok with that side of the pacing so far so.
    – That’s all I can think of for now

      Thank you!! 😀 That’s a really big help!

      Nothing really screams at me to watch it, based on this. Like the cons aren’t the kind that are usually enough to make me not be bored by a show. Maybe I’ll wait until it’s finished and hear the final beanie-verdict, unless I end up caving anyway out of boredom 😛

        I don’t know if it’s really anything revolutionary, but the main couple is a blast to watch, and their dynamic is refreshing to me at least. I’d say put on your to-watch list but don’t worry if you don’t watch it right away or understand our hype lol
        I don’t think I’m gonna be around for the finale :/

          LOL I actually tried, but quit after two eps cause of the creepy villain. Then I saw the later comments about it and realized it’d been a wise decision 😛 (Also quit because I just can’t root for a heroine who won’t use her powers when a man is being beaten up, but will do it when they break her phone. Like no.)

          Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, is also one I’ve tentatively put on my to-watch lol, cause all everyone talks about is the chemistry/relationship.

            Heh… I liked the villain, except he had no backstory, so I also didn’t like him, but he was acted well. (Yeah… the story is a mess. The only saving grace is the OTP’s chemistry and for some that’s enough, and for others *me* it’s really not)
            Ohhhh WFKBJ is beautiful, and not just because of the relationship, like that’s great and I adore them together so much, but it’s also about their careers and college friendships as well, and just lyfe in general? and it’s so sweet. Although I will say it took be till about episode 4 to be completely hooked. And it still had it’s controversies (everything seems to though)

            You HAVE to watch WLFKBJ. It has a wonderfully uplifting story. Yes, the OTP chemistry is off the charts, but the storyline and character development from everyone is phenomenal. It tackles real life problems so well. A great little show.

    I personally love it. The characters are grounded and the writing is solid; there’s little callbacks and small details in each episode that I love. The OST is awesome and I’ve bought several of the songs featured that aren’t even OST!
    It’s a solid romance with a fairly realistic view of life and how to chase your dreams against the odds. It very very strongly reminds me of how “Bottom of the Ninth, Two Outs” made me feel, which is my absolute favorite drama ever.
    There isn’t much bad, except for some of the characters being horrible people. I’m not noticing bad acting or a bunch of weird cuts or flashback overuse, etc.
    For me, it’s a must watch over “Lookout” because I really want happy and laid-back in my life, though I watch “Lookout” on Fridays 🙂 Quality-wise though I consider them equals.
    It also features Park Seo Joon shirtless, so there’s that ….
    I recommend watching it at some point. The recaps are great, but you do miss a lot of the little details sprinkled by the writer. And the feels aren’t quite the same.

      Thank you so much for the detailed answer! ^^

      I never did manage to get very far in Bottom of the Ninth, I think romance driven shows are kind of my krytonite, kdrama-wise lol. I’ll keep it as a maybe though! Sometimes we all just need a happy show and it’s good to have one set aside for that 🙂 (What? Park Seo Joon shirtless plays a part in why I’ll keep it as a maybe? Noooooooo-oo–ooooo..o..ooo.o. Absolutely not! *sideways glance*)

      I only read recaps if I want to make sure I catch references or want to join the discussion, so if I don’t watch the show, I won’t be reading the recaps either ^^

          I may be weird, but whenever I see games like banana-snapping, it always makes me wonder what they do with them afterwards? I know on 1N2D they give these things to the huge staff, but when there isn’t one I’m kind of worried they’re just throwing it away, which makes me sad because there are so many people who don’t have anything to eat :/ Like, don’t play with food lol!

            I actually found it funny that Hoony underestimated Yoon and Jinwoo so much that he didn’t bring enough bananas! I can see why people were complaining about their WinWinTv being boring! 😛 I wonder if bananas are still considered a rare thing in Korea like they showed in Answer Me 1988..

Even though they were actually doing something, it ended up more boring than FTI’s V-live which consists mostly of them simply talking alone to the camera one by one hahah 😛 Let’s hope Winner’s recent activities will make people see how fun and funny they can be!

    I generally don’t like it. I dropped after few epi. I can only love youthful drama if it is not mainly on the romance. WFKBJ – I love first half of drama but after second half I started to dislike it. Romcom is no longer my thing, if these drama were my very first drama, probably I’ll be excited. It’s also a bit loud for my taste. There are characters that I like such as the Coach.

    It’s about taste and preference anyway, I just don’t find it compelling enough to con’t to watch it even I like both leads. I did saw spoilers here and there so I know what happened without having to fully watch each epi.

      Romcom used to be my favorite escapism, but these days I really do need more than just the main relationship to be satisfied. I just started Ex-Girlfriend Club and enjoying it, because there’s focus on other emotions than just being in love.

        I loved Ex- GF Club, though I haven’t heard many people talk about it! It was a fun little show and the 12 episodes were the perfect length! It wasn’t a show to write much about I guess but it was time well spent!

          Apparently I posted an inappropriate word and have no idea what LOL. Let’s try again, short version:

          Premise for Ex GF Club is awesome. Thinking of shortening to-watch list by finally getting around to the shorter 12 ep shows on there. Found out I have 7 of those on there! Really no excuse not to have watched such short shows yet 😉

            7? Which ones? I don’t remember many 12 episode shows except Sassy Go Go and Ex GF Club..

            Is one of them Surplus Princess? That too wasn’t brilliant but fun in its randomness… It was cut down so it seemed like they didn’t spend a lot of time on the main love line but still a good way to pass time.. Plus Kim Seulgi and house-sharing which is an interesting concept (I really need to watch We Broke Up)

          Already seen Sassy Go Go and Surplus Princess. Let’s see though…

          1. this one
          2. Liar Game (I know, I know lol)
          3. Three Musketeers
          4. Solomon’s Perjury
          5. Awl
          6. Flower Grandpa Investigation Unit
          7. This Week My Wife’s Having an Affair

          I think they’re actually all cable shows lol, JTBC or TvN. A good 12 ep show I’ve seen is The Lover, that was loads of fun!
          And yes do watch We Broke Up! It’s super super quick and easy to watch and I love the OST. One of the best webdramas I’ve seen ^^

            2. You better get a move on! 😛
            4. Quite good… The feel is a lil White Christmasy but not THAT crazy…. add a little Shut Up Flower Boy Band feel (nothing to do with music here though, so I dunno why I feel that way)
            7. Not as amazing as JB and GF maintain but it really is quite good.. Like I was bored of the first 4 episodes

            I haven’t actually watched 3, 5 and 6 and out of these I don’t think I want to watch 5… it sounds a little boring (I didn’t love Misaeng as much as others did)… I saw some episodes of The Lover but somehow left it midway… My dropped or on-hold is longer than I have actually kept a record of! I should update my records!

          2. I actually tried the first ep, but quit pretty quickly because there were already some logic fails LOL. Plus not a fan of its cinemtographic style. But it’s SO famous and people love it, so I’ll definitely watch it…. someday 😛
          4. I haven’t seen White Christmas yet. I’m not really good at watching plots with bullying, at least as it is now, which is also the reason I have gotten around to Solomon’s yet. They both look good though, so I do want to watch them.
          7. I often disagree with JB and GF (sssshhhhh, don’t tell anyone!! :b), so I’m not expecting too much, especially cause I’m no SJH fan (as you know). Mostly want to watch it for the male lead heh 😛

          I love “boring” shows like these, so I’m really looking forward to 5, but if you didn’t like Misaeng I can see why you’re not dying to watch this one haha 😛 (Also, don’t ever watch the American show Newsroom then, you probably would be just as bored ^^)

          The Lover is a certain brand of humor that definitely doesn’t suit everyone’s taste, so I’m not surprised 🙂

          My dropped/onhold list is getting shorter and shorter, I’ve been weeding out in it for the past months lol, slowly but surely 😛 And I decided that ones I only watched 1 or 2 eps of don’t count as dropped, because it’s just like having an apetitizer before deciding whether to dig into the main meal.

    I love this show! The soundtrack is so fun! Sometimes the characters are a little whacky and over-the-top, but there’s a freshness to the dialogue and the themes that the show is trying to grapple with. I like that there’s an underlying melancholy as the characters try to navigate the unfulfilling aspects of their lives and what it means to overcome them, but also this high energy and underdog spirit. Most of all, I like that the characters aren’t guarded or afraid to be vulnerable and put their most inner thoughts out there for all to see. Also, the main love line is wonderful. If you tune in just for them, then it’s worth it.

    Haha! I like this thread! FMW is basically a light rom-com to watch for laughs. There isnt a poignant storyline or intense anything.. it’s like how u need to watch chickflicks/chick lit at times for fluff? but quality fluff 🙂

    and u HAVE to watch weightlifting fairy! OMG! that was just gorgeous and amazing.. it was a really good slice of life drama with bonus points of lead pair chemistry.

          Agreed, I really loved how they reflected people’s personalities.
          Taemin’s also had lots of books with white backs that made it look like they were mostly non-fiction, which contributed to that sterile feel. Se Ju’s, on the other hand, were a glorious mix of colors and textures with lots of Penguins thrown in (yes I’m geeky enough to notice even the publisher lol). Coupled with the darker tones of the bookcases and the lighting in some of them, it really emphasized how he’s a serious man who has a passion for literature, with it also being his profession.

          I have quite a few penguins and I really like their notes, but it’s mostly works originally written in English. Their translations seem to be so stiff compared to Oxford’s.

      Most people who disagree with me here tend to verbalize it in actual replies and most downvotes I see are either used wisely (as in aimed at people who are being really rude/offensive) or they’re used in a seemingly random fashion on posts where actors or shows are complimented. The latter of which I find highly amusing as I imagine you have to be quite the Cap’n Grumpypants to dislike such positive posts haha 😛

    I think I would have found them all pretty if Mnet did not keep zooming and repeating every person’s expressions for like the millionth time. Like, dear Mnet I know you want me to think he looked cute/sexy here but did you have to play the same move 11000 times!

      I still haven’t resumed watching it and I’m not sure I ever will. The eps are just waaaaay too long *exhausted sigh* I’m not really sure I feel like the pay-off is worth it lol.

      I’ve noticed a lot of variety shows do editing in a weird way like that. Getting to see a certain facial expression three times in a row just to show different reactions etc just isn’t very entertaining, so I wonder why they do that…

        (and Hoonie but that is just my opinion because I love him and might be a little biased!)

        This is all because they all just have this attitude that says “I am sexy even if you don’t agree”

          Definitely Key too! Dunno about Hoon though, that current hair looks kind of funny 😛 I feel like going to SK just to tell the stylist to do their job properly, while at the same time feeling awed that they managed to make him look weird LOL, cause that’s no small feat!

          Oh definitely! How you wear your clothes can mean more than what you wear.

            Haha… I have heard many others commenting on how that hair style has to go but I kinda like it on him! Might be because this is how I saw him for the first time in that Dingo version so I don’t mind it as much as old fans would…

            Isn’t Key sporting something similar in Lookout- though he obviously looks cool as usual!

            Yeah I agree that the straight hair with weird highlights makes him look like an evil step-mother or something (looked good when he styled it back for that video segment on Oppa Thinking though)! His stylists really need to come up with something that suits him more!

      Well, there’s the obvious birth secret, but other than that I try not to figure such things out. I tend to overthink it otherwise and end up not enjoying the drama, because my mind’ll be busy trying to figure everything out and entertaining a million theories at the same time haha 😛

        Yes, Ji Hoon needs to stop thinking and just let go! (but the last time he ‘let go’ he ended up at the police station so i hope Hyun Jae could coach him right!) 😀

        I really don’t know whether to ship Woo Seung with Ji Hoon or Hyun Jae! I see chemistry on both sides so I wonder what the show will do!

          Yeah, her and GJ are so cute together! She seems an odd fit for HJ, personality-wise, but perfect for GJ ^^

Trying to finish Mystery Queen. Then read that the ending is meant for a S2. No way I\’m gonna spend 16 hours more on a 2nd season. Should I just stop watching at ep 11? *scratches non-existing beard*

    I watched to the end and even though it was left open for a second season, it didn’t end with a cliffhanger. It was more like things didn’t get wrapped up super neatly so it left it open for a season two. Personally, I still enjoyed it and wasn’t super disappointed by the ending (especially since I had heard that it was kind of open ended and was able to prepare myself for that). If you were watching it because you wanted to know what happened in the overarching mystery you might want to drop it but if you just enjoyed watching the characters interact then I’d recommend finishing it.

      Think I’ll just let it be then, since I was pretty much only watching to finish what I started. Think I’d just be annoyed that I don’t even get a proper resolution and feel like I’d have to watch s2 despite not caring about the characters lol.

      Lol I think JJY is just younger and lighter. But I was impressed, because all other dancing I’ve seen from him was like a flailing bird and just plain weird haha 😛 It cracks me up to think that he could’ve been in LED Apple or Sangmin’s 2nd Roo’ra kkkk.

      On the singing front, I was really impressed with Jongmin! He usually sounds pretty bad, but I guess Defconn was right when he said he’s good when it comes down to it and when it counts heh. Maybe he just needs the pressure of a real performance to bring out the effort required for him to sing well haha.

      Waitt…. whaaattt??? Like, everyone is so connected to everyone in K-ent, it’s crazy! I want to be a part of that friend group. You think they’d let me in? I’m fine with just being one the guys 😛

          Lol I figured they weren’t, I just liked the idea of all those guys hanging out together at the same time 😉

          There’s no six degrees of seperation there, it’s like 2 or 3 degrees with everyone it seems lol! In Denmark it’s probably even worse though. Sometimes it feels like living in a small town instead of a country, cause we’re only 6 million people. For instance, my parents’ new neighbors just turned out to be related to one of my college professors and on top of that had an album released under my dad’s friend’s old record label lol 😛

          Btw that article… Someone commented that Hongki “definitely” had a nose job. Based on those few, low-quality pictures… Ehhhh… What? I was watching that show and thinking “wow he literally looks exactly the same, just obviously a bit older”. Some people *slow headshake*

            I hate these “I-just-have-to-comment-something-senseless” comments! Hongki actually looks his childhood self till now! There was a post somewhere about Mino loosing his weight and one comment-er kept insisting that he had a nose job and others were trying to tell her/him that when one loses weight, one loses weight from everywhere… I just didn’t see the whole point of discussing it! Like even if he did, the post is about him losing weight, why bring another topic in it!

          Actually that kind of thing happens more often that you’d think. Once someone I know updated their facebook relationship status and I thought “huh the new gf looks familiar” and clicked her profile… Turns out she knows THREE people I know, only two of which also know each other while the third was my childhood friend who’d been her best friend when they were teens lol!
          Hahaha yeah can’t imagine it happening in such a populated country like yours! That would be like a miracle-level of coincidence kkk 😛

          I don’t get the obsession with figuring out if they got PS or not. If it’s not obvious, then why bother trying to find out and if it’s obvious there’s really not much to figure out anyway, since it’s, well, obvious 😛
          And the whole weight-loss thing happens so much. You lose weight to look different (or be healthy, but you get the point I hope heh), so why is it such a surprise when they actually turn out to look different after losing said weight? o.O

    I keep seeing suspiciously negative things about the turn it took at the end and I’m like ‘I was bored in ep 10 but ep 11 looked ok… should I still finish it?’… the interest is waning but I might just out of stubbornness and the desire to sarcastically screencap and review the experience when I get home

      I loathe leaving a show unfinished, but tbh I wouldn’t recommend finishing MxM. The two last eps ruined all the small things I did like about the show (which aren’t many. Pretty much only consits of Ungwang being hilarious and PHJ being suave and dorky at the same time. But still). Just… let it be. Although sarcastic screencapping sounds awesome and now I kind of want to see that, I also don’t want to see you throw away six precious hours of your life that will make you feel like you wasted the previous ten too lol 😛

And the “climax” at the end was just as wtf and anti-climactic as K2 <:( (lol it was supposed to be an angry one, but now it's just a sad smiley with a party hat pwahaha)

            Idk from what I’ve seen of MXM flaws, K2 had other and different problems. K2’s climax was… idk too climatic for no character set up. Sounds like MXM just fell flat.
            Heeeee sad smiley with a party hat- I need that emoji. Totally gonna use it now haha.

          Didn’t even notice the typos lol, no worries.

          I dunno. The romance shoe-horned in; the hero who’s stoic and action-y and secretive, but also suddenly like a little kid in a totally random, uncharacteristic way; lots of action in the beginning, hardly any by the end; completely unrealistic, unsatisfying and random wrapping-up of the major “mystery”. I feel like it has a lot of similarities, but maybe that’s just me.

          Well, then I hereby grant you permission to use said smiley! 😛

          Thankfully I was still somewhat new to kdrama back then and was charmed by Lee Hyun Woo, so it didn’t feel as bad a show to me as it did to most. Don’t know if I’d be able to finish it now though, 80 shows or so later 😛

            Okay well when you point them out yes, they had a lot of similarities. haha
            And I guess neither of the main leads had much (any) backstory. But I felt like SW had more onscreen development than K2, who had literally none, in fact, I wasn’t quite sure why he was the main character.
            They just feel a lot tonally different in my head, MXM made me laugh. K2 was trying to be more thriller-y and exciting (and just ended up a mess)

            I didn’t watch it airing I don’t think. I also skipped to episode 6 after the first ep or something haha, and it took my friend and I almost a year to finish it all hahaha. Lee Hyun Woo was ok in it, I actually though the female leads were it’s (only) saving grace.

          I think tonally they aimed for the same, but ended up differently, maybe. MxM seemed to really try to make the mystery and spy parts thrilling, but they just felt boring most of the time, while its comedic moments saved it from complete horrendousness. The K2 on the other hand had an interesting villain that all but saved the show, while its attempts at a lighter tone always felt weird or just meh (like the ramyun twirl. What the literal f was that scene even about?).

          It’s not that I found LHW particulary impressive or anything, in fact I’m not quite as wow’ed by his acting as most beanies, but there’s just something about him that draws me in and I don’t even find him handsome. So I guess it’s his charisma?
          I thought I was the only one who liked the female leads! They were a big part of why I stuck with it. But if I hadn’t live-watched from the beginning I’m not sure I would’ve made it to the end LOL.

(Oh gosh the ramyun twirl… I actually forgot about it for a minute there then remembered O.o – actually someone in the comments sparked this thought and I’ve carried with it since then, about how much better the K2 would’ve been if the villainess was a little younger and the “romantic interest” and if Anna was a young girl still, so that the K2 and Anna had a guardian/protector/almost familial relationship, and then the romance had a tragic or bittersweet ending when the villainess kinda consumes herself… that would’ve been more heart wrenching to watch, gosh can we have that drama pls)

            I’m haven’t been wowed by his acting yet either haha he’s just nice to watch 😛 Charisma would do it. Or his voice and hands. He has really nice hands… that’s more a bonus than something that would get me to watch a show though hahaha.
            Omygosh did others not?!?! They were both so badass! Some people don’t like Seo Ye Ji (like in Hwarang) but I thought she was fantastic in MS. Idk it seemed like only the female leads in MS got the good lines and character writing though haha so maybe that was it.

          Yesssss. I was rooting for him and the villainess the entire show. Just imagine the complexity and moral ambiguity and ugh, it could’ve been so good! Don’t care that she’s that much older, that just adds another layer. Their chemistry was sizzling! The rest sounds AMAZING too and now I really want that drama! I think it should’ve gone for something more like Lookout, with lots of moral ambiguity and stuff, would’ve been awesome. Or maybe that’s just my preference for that kind of thing in stories that makes me want it everywhere. I like real life people to have a steady moral compass, but fictional characters are so much more interesting when they’re not plain good or evil.

          Someone’s voice can totally make me watch their drama. Like Sung Joon. I think like half his charisma and appeal is that voice of his lol. Watching for someone’s hands though… that I’ve never done 😛 Although nice hands is always a plus!
          I loved Seo Ye Ji in MS! I was so surprised to see people talking negatively about her when she was announced for Hwarang. But maybe you’re right, maybe the writing made her stand out more positively.
          Now I want to go back and check… Except I don’t think I’ll ever want to revisit that drama, it’s better to just let it lie as a nice memory of one of my first live-watches LOL.

            It’s funny and possibly I’m the odd one out here but I actually thought their tension could’ve been /higher/, to make me feel more (my cold tsundere heart) but also it could’ve been written better? Like it could’ve been written to have more impact. The whole show could’ve actually. (Perhaps I’m just hard to move, there are very few shows that have shifted me completely emotionally)
            I’m not one for story lines with too much adultery, it’s just something in fiction or real life that just doesn’t sit well with me, even if for example, as in the K2s case, he (her husband) is a cheating asshole, that wouldn’t excuse her of the same sin. If you know what I mean. I don’t know if that’s what you meant by the moral ambiguity you wanted, I have a feeling it’s not entirely, but I thought I’d bring it up anyway.
            But with a bit of tweaking I could come up with a scenario where you would have moral ambiguity, and the age gap villainess-hero romance and the tragic ending and keep my anti-adulterer heart at ease lmao.
            Needless to say this ‘could’ve been drama’ definitely inspired me to make a story for it of my own in my head. Should write it down and send it to a broadcasting company hehe.
            I’m looking forward to THAT moral ambiguity in Lookout a lot though! Because I actually like Kim Young Kwang a lot and am invested in his character already from the snippets I’ve seen even though he’s like frikking chaotic neutral/good? very chaotic good? idk and playing three sides yikes.

            Oh boi, yes, Sung Joon’s voice. It only gets deeper too <3
            I haven't either!! I just have a thing for hands… you know how people like eyes? I notice hands.
            It's interesting that such a poorly written show plot wise nailed the female characters. I wonder who the writer was, they should only write female characters haha. Comparatively Hwarang had A LOT of issues, least of all was Ye Ji haha and she wasn't that bad. She played what she was given pretty well. Go Ara was worse. Ooops did I just say that outloud? 😉
            Hahaha noo don't go back! Just trust your first impression! lmao
            The only reason I'd revisit that drama would be to try and find that once piece of 'ai-ee-ai-ee-aii-ai-ai-ai-ai-ai' background music that STILL HAUNTS ME TO THIS DAY

          Lol yeah, not the moral ambiguity I was thinking of ^^ In fact, I’d even forgotten she was married (oops). (I don’t want characters to cheat, but I do sometimes want them to get a divorce, cause there are some seriously abusive, controlling monster-spouses in kdrama O.O) The moral ambiguity I was thinking of is more along the lines of making people flawed and the kind of people who feel like sacrificing something “small” for the sake of something “greater” or something that would save more lives along the line etc. Basically any kind of character that isn’t all good or evil – like a more nuanced writing, I guess? I like the tension and unpredictability it brings to a story.
          I know what you mean about their chemistry. When I say it was sizzling, I mean that their raw chemistry was insanely full of potential. The writing did indeed sadly fail to deliver on that potential, which is such a shame.

          I don’t think I’ll ever watch Hwarang. The combination of sageuk, cheap-looking costumes, bad writing and Minho (he just. can’t. act. at all.) kind of scares me away.
          Lol I have no idea what you’re talking about, I can’t remember any of the music from that show haha.

            Divorce I’m ok with. haha
            Yeah I kinda figured that’s what you meant /after/ I’d typed up my spiel so I just left it in haha. She was already pretty deep as a character but they could’ve played on that so much more, have that the centre point of the show. Is she the heroine or the villain? And he could’ve been the one to sway that throne of hers with yes, that raw chemistry they definitely had which wasn’t pushed far enough AHHH I WANNA WRITE THIS NOW.

            Hahahahaha re. Minho. He also wasn’t the worst part of that show. It’s more like lots of tiny little things just added together to make it rather average. Although his character was cheesy and jerky it kinda worked… sometimes…?
            Let’s just say Key, and even Onew is the better actor from SHINee pfffffffft. And I wouldn’t recommend Hwarang really to anyone so yeah.

          Exactly! So many interesting things they could’ve done with the villainess and their chemistry.

          Lol EVERYONE in Shinee is probably a better actor than Minho hahahaha 😛 I did make it through the entirity of To the Beautiful You and was pleasantly surprised at him not being quite as embarrassingly bad as I thought he’d be, but since I expected the absolute worst, that’s not saying a lot 😛

I really should finish soon though! The clip of him wanting to get the right angle for his muscles cracked me up so much I rewatched it three times in a row hahaha 😛

        I hope you feel better really soon! ^^

        dramanice still subs it, it used to be subbed by the channel on yt, but they stopped sometime last year or something 🙁 But anyway, yes, it’s the newest ep and should be on said site.

          Ahhh just about finished the 2nd ep with his group now 🙂
          I mean… I’m not complaining if he wants to show them off. Not complaining at all.
          I was gonna say though I got kinda annoyed that they kept asking the boys (JH and Shin from Cross Gene mainly) what they thought of Boa, and who was prettier etc etc, like, no need to force some silly crush angst with editing guys, just let them be! I know it’s variety but still. Plus I have major issues with the whole ‘ideal type’ thing that Korea has. Dunno if we’ve had that convo yet…

          I really hope so too! I wanna enjoy Colorado!

          Ah ok. It wasn’t super necessary at the end cos they just played haha but good to know they’re out there.

            They ALWAYS do that on LOTJ. It’s part of the reason I only watch it when someone I really love on variety is on.
            I don’t get the ideal type thing. In the end people fall in love with the personality anyways, so it’s not like it matters. But maybe it’s because the more business-like approach to marriage still seems to be flourishing more than in the West? Like your genes and schooling etc seems to matter a lot when it comes to marriage, at least in some circles or to some people, whereas here most people couldn’t care less. Dunno if that’s a skewed perspective from drama-watching though hah.

          Ugh waaaeee. Yeah well I’m only watching this for JH, and kinda Shin now that I know he’s on there, and I actually really like Boa, but I just wish it wasn’t there it’d be so much more enjoyable to watch.

          It’s definitely a cultural thing for sure. Like it’s normal to talk about your ideal type.. and I’m just like, that’s such an unhealthy view on romance. And to go around asking if x person is more your ‘ideal’ type than another? Like what? Do they just want to breed ship wars? I think to a certain extent everyone thinks about what they’d like in a SO, but preying on that for variety comedy must be so emotionally tiring.
          It’s refreshing when I find someone (KR) who isn’t specific about it other than ‘likes music’ or ‘I have to like their personality’ or just flat out refuses to answer the question.

        You could tell Jaejin was nervous and slightly ahead of the beat in the beginning, but he still sounded really good and it’s so nice to see him overcome that fear! I think the guitar line did best otherwise, but yeah, in general, it sounded… listenable? LOL. I just love how cute they were about it, like some kids having fun playing around with older siblings’ instruments in their parents basement hahah 😛

        In the full clip YHY actually said that he’s the one that asked them for it, which is just awesome, because it means he’s got faith in their musical and variety skills! Apparently they worked on it while touring in Japan, so considering how little practice they must’ve gotten, they did well! Have you seen the older clip of a concert where they switched too? Seunghyun was singing and they were all in costumes, if I remember correctly.

          Yess you so could. But he kinda got more comfortable as it went on and after he laughed.
          Did you notice JJ through JH a weird as look for something he did on the bass? I don’t know why but it made me chuckle. Although, knowing several guitarists who can play bass, I bet JH can actually play.
          Very listenable indeed! So true, and how relaxed they were.

          Oh gosh no, I don’t think I have. But I’ll find it, sounds like a blast.

            Lol no didn’t notice that, will have to look for it next time. Yep, he does play the bass. He was also the one playing in the other clip and he did well. Seunghyun also does play piano/keyboard and has done it for solo stages. I’ve seen old clips of him teaching Minhwan guitar, so he’s been learning for a while too and Hongki learnt some drumming for You’re Beautiful (WHY do I know all this stuff??? O.O ). So they all can do at least a little of those instruments beforehand, I think it’s just mostly that it’s their first time playing them on TV + it must feel suuuper weird because it’s such a rare setup for them.

            I wish I could give you the link, but I can’t remember anything about the name of the vid :/ It was pre-Pray though and at an outside venue.

          I knew Hongki could play drums, for YB and also for that really sad movie he was in I can’t remember the name of.
          (The same reason I know random facts about bands and also everything)

        dramanice I think is the only site that subs YHY’s Sketchbook, they have the whole ep 🙂

        Jaejin was actually supposed to be their vocalist until Hongki came in. He sings a lot when it comes to their Japanese stuff (including, yes, being the main vocal for FT Triple) and both him and Seunghyun are considered FTI’s subvocals ^^ But he’s mentioned a lot how he gets really nervous when singing on radio or TV instead of at concerts and you can usually hear how sings with less power or slightly off because of that. It’s why he’s said he won’t go on King of Mask despite tons of fan-requests, but I hope this helped him overcome it so much that he’ll go on the show! That would be awesome 😀 I really want people to see that the rest of FTI are talented too.

            Mostly though it’s just because they’ve got over 500 songs and how am I supposed to fit that in when there’s so many other good artists to listen to too? :O I think the closest I’ve ever come to listening to someone’s complete catalogue is Beatles, unless I’ve been “there” since the first album. Oh, and Amy Winehouse. But she’s only got like two albums LOL.
