I am debating on whether I should watch Her Private Life now or wait until tomorrow for the other episode? hmmmmm….

    I think I want to be surprised by this one. So I’m going to try and be careful on the fan wall until I watch each new episode.

    I just hope it’s as delightful as it looks like it has the potential to be.

My contribution to the SHINee lovefest.

My best friend left back home on a flight early this morning. We had a blast for the last 4 days and I almost 😥😢😭 as I dropped her at the airport. I spent the rest of the morning taking care of the things I usually take care of on Mondays. Now comes the humdrum of my everyday life and gasping at my bank account because of the 💸💸💸 I spent while she was here. The silver lining is I have a few dramas to fill the friend sized hole in my heart.

How is the Siwon drama?

    Aww it always hurts to say goodbye. ;A; Money can be earned back but those memories, you won’t get again if you let the chance pass by.

    My Fellow Citizens was fun. I’m interested on where it’s going from here. The premise was confusing to me but it made more sense after watching the first 2 episodes.

      I watched MFC and despite my non-love for Siwon and Kim MinJung, I enjoyed it. I don’t know how long I will continue but for now, I’m on board.

@larelle79 How was the ending of The Item?

    I liked it. It was pretty emotional in those last couple of hours and it really did make you think. Now that it is over, So-young was my favorite character because she was the glue that held everyone together and she was truly the one that needed someone to lean on the most. Everything that she was getting hit with she still was not able to have time to process because what they were doing had to keep chugging along. After Se hwang was finally caught and she decided to quit the police force, that would have been her time to just go away and be by herself and mourn the loss of her father, her priest and the damage that Se hwang inflicted on her. But, no she went on to raise Da In because Gon was now gone (not dead, just not back in their world) and direct the orphanage because Father Goo is dead. She was the perfect mix of optimism, badass, and smarts. I really enjoyed her.

    I also really like the way they wrote Se-hwang. I was so happy that they did not try to humanize him. He was a sociopath. That is it. No rhyme or reason. And that is fine as there are people out there like that just have no human feeling. And he brought up a great point before he left the world ( and his death was….irony?), you can’t stop this. There are more people out there like him and will continue to do so. And he was right.

    There was time that it lagged but overall I did enjoy it. It was promoted as this supernatural thriller but I think it was more than that. It really was about how we as people are with and to the world around us. We can make it a better place or we can destroy it.

Beanies I need help finding the name to a drama PLEASE! My mom was watching a drama when DramaFever (#Gonebutneverforgotten) shutdown but she can\’t remember the name. Bear with me as this is her description of it.

\”A woman rolls down a hill/falls in water and wakes up in another time. Later a man that likes her is chasing her when HE rolls down a hill/falls in water and wakes up in HER time.\”

I hope this sounds even remotely familiar.

        Yeah, I wasn’t sure if it was. When LUTYN was airing it was definitely not on DF, but I stopped using DF a while before it got shut down and I wasn’t sure if they had acquired it later or something.

      I’m trying to figure that out. The only K-drama that I know of that sounds familiar was LUTYN but I haven’t seen every single drama so I asked here. If it’s a Chinese drama we’re sunk. Way too many to figure it out.

        I think it may be 2 dramas 😬 cos the first half sounds an awful lot like Scarlet Heart Ryeo but I can’t place the 2nd half. Ask Mom if the heroine finds herself in another time in a ginormous bathtub filled with flower boys! 😂

        1

    Scarlet Heart Ryeo has IU travelling through a pool.

    It also had some drunk guy/astronomer/whatevermysteriousoldman travelling through time.

    But it didn’t really cover /her/ time period much or at all I think?

    I don’t know. I erased my memories of this show on purpose.

Did you guys see that netizens are trying to link Lee JongHyun too JJY? FNC released a statement saying it\’s not and they will press charges against malicious commenters. If he is involved I will be crushed. He seems like such a nice guy.

I am a Big Bang fan but Seungri always seemed like he was trying too hard. Always wanted too much attention. I\’m glad none of the other members are involved because I would be heartbroken. I bet they are happy they are in the army and not around for this mess. This is all surreal and we don\’t even know everything yet.

    Lee Jong Hyun of CNBLUE? I hope he’s not involved.

    I saw the statement FNC put out though and they definitely downplayed LJH and JJY’s relationship. They were close enough friends to vacation together during the period in question. That doesn’t mean LJH is guilty of anything, of course, but it’s hard to imagine friends not knowing JJY was such a dirt bag.

      I will say this, I had friends that were doing things I found questionable. You can not be aware but once you find out, start distancing yourself. I don’t think every one of his friends knew what he was doing. Not all of them are going to be like-minded. I hope LJH isn’t one.

      The only one from FNC that being investigate is Choi JongHoon. His status still witness. And yes, everyone from JJY squat know how JJY habit. Junhyung also knowing about this and of course Zico also aware about this. I can’t believe that anytime Zico coming to JJY’s house and scrolling his ‘golden phone’ was just reading the contact. They know, but they can’t do anything or report that.

    I hope it’s not Jonghyun, he used to be jerk but I think he matured a lot in recent years. I read someone claim that Singer Lee is DJ and son of Naver CEO.

    Do you still trust the” seemingly nice guy ” though? I mean if somebody wills, anyone can seem nice and that’s even easier on do so with somebody just managing your image. Not reffering to specifically him but the term. Well, this whole has just taught me to not get immersed in anybodys variety or bts personality. If I watch dramas now I’ll just consider a person doing their job that’s it. I won’t think that these guys both men and female are actually like their characters pr even how they appear in variety ( scripted reality? ) shows.

      I’ve always thought that celebrities were just doing their jobs but I am not going to let one or two abusive dickheads taint my view of everyone. If that were the case I, as a black person, wouldn’t have anything to do with kpop. I am already cynical because of where I live and the things I’ve seen. I am not a doe-eyed naive girl. Some things are believable, some are not.

        Totally justified. It isn’t right to bring everyone in the same sphere too. Maybe a balance is what one needs.

    Two of the reasons this case is snow-balling so hard is because 1. JJY at this point is an undeniable serial sex offender who evidence shows had no qualms making that clear to his close friends. He didn’t just commit a crime or make a mistake, he’s clearly sick in the head. And 2. Evidence has shown that he has been committing and sharing these crimes with his friends since at least 2015. This means anyone who has shown a close relationship with him over the last 4 years is now subject to suspicion of either overlooking or enjoying in the fruits of JJY’s crimes.

    Lee Jonghyun, Choi Jonghoon, Eddie Kim, Roy Kim, Zico, Choi Taejoon and more are currently being lambasted by the Korean public for their friendships with JJY or Seungri and more and more condemning clips are coming up every day suggesting that many of them were aware of JJY’s personality/doings. And because the clips, SNS evidence, and crimes span such a long period, they are all having a hard time believably denying their friendship with JJY.

    The problem here is that if JJY indeed didn’t make an effort to hide his true character from his friends and they still chose to be friends with him, it now becomes a reflection of their own personal character. Which is why it doesn’t matter whether or not they were in the chatroom or their agencies deny their involvement, in the eyes of the public they are already as good as guilty.

JJY is really a horrible man. As SBS releases more of the chat it is obvious that everyone involved is horrible too. I am wondering if they are waiting to release the part of the chat where Seungri participated. So far they haven\’t said that it was him in the chats released.

This entire time I didn\’t have a face put to the name Jung Joon Young because he wasn\’t someone I was interested in. I honestly thought JJY was someone else. I finally saw who he was while reading about Zico\’s comments on Radio Star. Gotta say I am not really surprised.

I have only ever seen him on We Got Married. He was such an ass to his fake wife that I avoided him on other shows. It is really going down. I bet there are plenty of people shitting their pants right now. HongKi is the only one right now that I care about. I hope it\’s not true but if it is let the chips fall where they may.

I really hope none of the victims have their info \”accidentally\” released. That would be a real tragedy.

    Zico probably won’t be in the chat but we know he used to scroll through the phone when he went over to JJY’s house. ugh, my stomach hurts. Please don’t let any of my faves be involved in this.

      I’ve had the same thought. I’m really new to kpop an got into it with Pentagon then found Big Bang and now SHINee with a mix if others.
      But I had the thought of please dont let a SHINee member pop up or Tablo or something.

    Jesus. Let’s see what happens after the investigation concludes. I really like JJY. This news saddens me. I will try to maintain innocent till proven guilty.

      I was keeping an open mind until the authorities revealed the chat is real. When I read that, my stomach dropped. The comments from Zico make sense if the KKT chat is real. Why would he ask for the phone just to scroll through contacts? For that matter why does JJY have a phone for only KKT? It just screams “This is the phone I do all my dirt on”. The one thing that bothers me is he didn’t have enough sense to wipe the phone before sending it to get fixed? And I mean that purely in a “trying to figure it out” way. The whole thing from the guy that was assaulted to everything else that has come out is worrisome, to say the least, and horrific at best.

    Lee Hong Ki has been cleared by the SBS reporter, Kang Kyung Yoon: https://www.soompi.com/article/1309674wpp/reporter-clarifies-that-lee-hong-ki-was-not-involved-in-chatroom-with-jung-joon-young. I was worried too when his name came up initially as he was part of a reality girl group competition show, Produce 48.

So you mean to tell me DanI has been competent in everything but the entire office believes she messed up like that? CEO Kim, Dir Ko, all of them are pieces of shit. Can\’t believe they let her take…

    the blame while the real culprit only has to write a letter of apology. When you’re the boss shouldn’t you make sure things are fair? CEO Kim and Dir. Ko are especially shitty. I wish EunHo would bounce. Not because they fired his girlfriend but because they let a competent employee take the fall for a lesser one. Management cannot be trusted. I am pissed right now.

      Sorry that company doesn’t deserve her. Firing her is one thing. But this underhanded scheming is just wrong. Plain wrong. And did CEO Kim partake in this crap. Uneffingbelievble!

        They all went along with it! This is what bothers me. I agree, not renewing her contract is one thing. But to let that BEYOTCH frame her is a completely different issue. If I was YoungA, I would make sure she never had another peaceful moment at work.
