That ending! Omg. Omg.
@mayhemf @msrabbit @azzo1 @13infamyss @chasingbears @gadis @sensationalfantasy
I can’t help but think about what happened when Kyung stepped off the stage when he was thrown out of the car. He must have run all the way to get to the theatre. He was out of breath and dishevelled. My favourite parts were all Kyung’s. When he said, “I don’t even know why I’m so concerned over you.” When he cried. Oh, God, it broke my heart. Kyung scowling, frowning, sneering, smirking…all got me…and Kyung crying totally undeed me. And that ending…just brilliant, it left me gasping… Kyung KNOWS. OMG. Can he be the lead already. BECAUSE I HAVE IT SO BAD FOR HIM.
Logical Ssong: I can see at that moment in the theater that Kyung tried to run and to meet Danoh and I feel so bad for him too given his circumstances (but it’s not a pass for him to manhandle Danoh ALL THE TIME). Now that Kyungie is aware, we can finally see him do things that are outside of his character which involves actually taking care of Danoh. No matter how much he hates sick people (because of his mom) it’s not a pass for him to mistreat Danoh like that.
Ssong that is a Lee Jae-wook stan: OMG THE MICRO EXPRESSIONS LJW DOES WHEN HE IS ANGRY (as always) WERE REALLY GOOD. The confusion, the sadness, the heartbreak, THOSE SMIRKS THAT KILLED ME SEVERAL TIMES TODAY just proves that he can totally do anything. Can we have Kyung actually being nice to Danoh? PLEASE LET HIM BE HIMSELF. LET KYUNG BE A PUPPY.
The writer totally has it in for Kyung, doesn’t he? He’s like the biggest jerk that ever lived. And even in the shadow, he’s still nasty and jealous. But I am so rivetted. I keep waiting for him to redeem himself. And in that last scene, I’m suddenly thinking, Omg. Don’t tell me he knew earlier, right about the time the photo started fading, and his name tag started blurring…that was when he became aware. Please don’t make him Evil Kyung. Jerk Kyung is already awful, but Evil Kyung would totally break my heart.
Kyung definietly gets better once he became aware in the webtoon so I hope it happens so fast in the drama that I will forget what he did on the first 6 episodes HAHAHAHAHA (I’m looking at you, Romi, from A moment at Eighteen).
*undid* , not undeed. Lolol. What am I thinking????
Baby – “she’d even die for me if I’m a bit nicer to her”
Stop this mindset, please. Don’t give her stress and verbal attacks and stop the hand grabbing so she’ll live longer.
I’m hyperventilating atm. Kyung knows!! Wow, just wow. We might get a whiplash next week when we meet a very different him. I’m wary about the Squid Guy, though. He seems to know in advance that Kyung is going to be the one awakened after Haru’s disappearance. I don’t like the calculative glint in his eyes when he said that out loud.
He is so creepy. And to think I found him so endearing at first.
Omg. I am so in love with this show. Kyung is so hot. He sizzled in this episode. And that ending!!!!
@mayhemf @13infamyss @azzo1 @katakwasabi
I saw the last arc of the episode on a live stream. Even without subs, I screamed at the turn around of events! My extraordinary girl gets her love triangle tropey, my beautiful beau looks so good right next to my extraordinary girl, and my hottie bae looking hot as ever in black and while scowling.
Do you think she’s the lead now? The story’s suddenly flipped, and the leads are now in the shadow.
I didn’t get to watch yet, work’s been crazy *cries*
Poor Danoh, in the beginning she said she won’t love anymore and at the end, after 10 years, Baek Kyung accepts officialy her feelings… They’re not really synchro :p
But I’m wondering if all these will change her fate, and she won’t die after all, and if Kyung is actually helping her, by getting involved in the story. I feel like he’s a nice guy, beneath all that mean coldness. He’s being abused, and it’s a vicious cycle…I feel his character is so intriguing…and why is that Dried Squid guy so creepy? Who is he?
I don’t know, but the new manhwa “Flower” seems to have a role and Dried Squid is the only one who knows.
@katakwasabi @hebang @msrabbit @sicarius
Guys, I caught Shadow. He was in my backyard all this time.
🤣🤣🤣🤣Thanks for making me ROTFL first thing in the morning, YY. But we still don’t know who Shadow is. Is that you doing a cameo? 😉
IT’S ROOFTOP PARTY TIME, FOLKS!
EVERYONE IS INVITED, EVEN @egads, MY CREEPY NEIGHBOUR WHO STARES OUT HER WINDOW AND TALKS TO HERSELF. *SHIVERS*
PRESENTS TO BRING:
SSR, HYUN BIN & @azzo1 ‘s OPPA
Btw, do we bring the presents wrapped or unwrapped?
Bring ’em wrapped. I’ll unwrap each myself. Ke ke
Okay, I will tie them up first.
@outofthisworld Laughed my head off. Seriously. But you don’t have to tie @azzo1‘s Oppa, she’s already got him bound and gagged in her cellar.
Huh? You want me to bring Oppa as a present?
Look, I’m happy for you but I’m not gifting you Oppa, let’s see.. umm.. what about I bring Oppa as a guest and he brings you a present?
Oppa…what does he look like? I can’t remember. Should I change my profile pic? I feel like I’m leading him on.
He looks like your profile pic!!!
It’s okay, change it, you’ve moved on, no need to feel bad!
Also, leading on who now?!
Oppa. We had good times together. *CRIES*
🥂🍾🎉🎉🎉 It’s about time!!! You must have a large rooftop room to hold all those guests and presents.
We are all dalgeons, we party hanging off the rooftops, we fall off, we don’t die…*BEAMS*
Is this the Rooftop Of Non-Doom?!?!?
That might be an accurate description of me.
Congrats on moving YY!
But you can’t request SSR as a gift. I forbid that. Instead I’ll come as his representative.
I am so tempted to change my profile pic to The Rock Candy. But I feel bad for @azzo1‘s Oppa.
Wow. You sound very possessive. I DON’T BLAME YOU BECAUSE HE’S THE BEST I LOVE HIM PLS DON’T KILL HIM PLS DON’T MAKE HIM THE SHADOW *WORRIED*
Not possessive but protective. I’ve seen what you did to Hot Cold CEO. I don’t want SSR to go through the same ordeal and be tortured.
He is sadface in Vagabond and it’s making me sad YY!! Make him smile show and DON’T MAKE HIM A DOUCHE AND DON’T KILL HIM PLEASEEEEEE~ huhuhu
Woohoo! I’ll bring dessert!
Janghyuk? I love him, but they’ve made him the dessert now, he’s no longer the main dish. *CRIES*
WHOOO HOOOO – finally!!!!
Congratulations! you deserve it! Now enjoy that rooftop!
Congratulations, YY! Hand you Dal Geon. Please kill him!!
Finally! I’ll catch up in another year 😅
I will miss never stale tales of candy & hot cold ceo, but congratulations! 😁
I will be back with Part 2 and Rooftop Ice Queen when the time is right, and reuntite with that skank of a cheating Cold Hot – and probably married, gasp! – CEO. I have an axe to grind with Candy Girls who undergo an UNBELIEVABLE transformation into Snow Queen with a broken Candy Heart in Korean dramas. I get so mad just thinking about Jang Nara post-Candihood. *SNARLS*
Ohhh this sounds great. I have an ax to grind with cold ex candies that still love their abusive exs/partners…. TLE. *snarls*
Whoohoo congrats!!! ^^
Holy moly, @yyishere! Congratulations on your new rank and address!
Thank you!!!!! 🎈🎈🎈🎈
So do I continue, or abort my story? Will CH CEO be suspended forever in the garden? Will Candy be frozen forever, running?
DALGEON! LOOK AT THAT FACE! BECAUSE I AM HIM!
You’ll continue. You need to get into the loan shark office since you’re broke but you keep splurging on flight tickets to Morocco and damaging public property. 🤭
Let this poor, long- suffering errand girl rest her tired feet…how is Vagabond? I haven’t watched ep 8 yet.
Ep 8 has more Ki Tae Woong. And he is a special agent surgeon. Kekeke
Candy pulls herself back from his cold hot embrace and says, “I just don’t think I’m that into you. Also I have my own house now, I don’t need yours.”
And she turns and walks away, leaving him in a quagmire of conflicting emotions forever.
He’s a jerk. All cold, hot guys who kiss dumb Candy girls behind their fiancees’ backs are jerks. The dramas glamorise it, but it is cheating, no?
Yep. Making out like the fiancé is a crazy beyatch is just a way of excusing male infidelity. Also, 9/10 times he’s leading the other women on because he likes the attention.
But I love your story, especially the cold, hot embrace…maybe, I should replace cold hot with lukewarm? Serves him right for her walking away. That lukewarm CEO deserves a slap for kissing, AND APOLOGISING FOR THE KISS! But, do you notice the jerk never apologises for kissing poor dumb Candy in dramas?
Have you seen Dramaworld? In that, they have an hilarious scene where the male lead has to apologise for something and is incapable of doing it. It’s very funny.
No, I haven’t. Lol. Apologising is something that is so foreign to the jerk drama hero. Cold hot jerks do not apologise. It riles me the way they let them get away with it. As if his cold hotness is an excuse for his jerk behaviour. Extraordinary You really drove the point in with Kyung’s portrayal…I could sense the writer of the drama’s frustration with the norm and typical jerk behaviour.
Dramaworld is funny, I recommend it.
I haven’t started Extraordinary You. I might do so after I finish Graceful Family.
(EY- Then why did she fall victim to the stereotypes she’s trying to hate then…
OKAY I’M SORRY I’M JUST STILL KINDA PISSED I WAS RIGHT. )
I can accept this ending. It is right and proper and just.
And one day as Candy girl is enjoying her first day off since forever on her rooftop, sipping strawberry milk, she looks to her left and sees … (insert ideal oppa here)
[I think it is time to ditch the jerk and get yourself some second lead quality man!]
Possibly a hot plumber who fixes her leaking rooftop toilet with her shirt off in the summer heat.
HIS. HIS shirt. HIS.
🤣🤣🤣🤣 I was like… are you into The Untamed too?
I like the idea of a female plumber, but…. one that takes her shirt off while working… 🤔
HAHAHAHAHA I just laughed so hard 🤣
Oh, God. I laughed my head off.
I could have deleted this comment and reposted to spare myself the humiliation. But I left it for your enjoyment @msrabbit @bbstl @yyishere
You are welcome.
Thank you, @leetennant. I appreciate your (shirtless) thought. 😉
tYPos make the world a better place sometimes.
@leetennant, we are most grateful! I needed that 😄
@leetennant Thank you. I will make the shirtless plumber girl my heroine in my next book, an erotica, titled, “The Cold Hot CEO and the Sweaty Plumber Girl”.
How about just Hot CEO because then we can have more shower scenes to balance out plumber girl shirtless work scenes. 🤭
Congratulations Rooftop Room Dweller!!! How do you like your new dwellings? Too errand boy-girlish? 😆 😉 😜
AHHHHHH! I AM A ROOFTOPER!!!!! AHHHHH! I COULDN’T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT DAL GEON! I AM A DALGEON, AND DALGEONISING FLEW ME TO THE ROOFTOP!!!!? YAYYY!!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT, BEANIES!
Thank you! Aw, he’s so cute.
It was the Dalgeom word that did it. It was my final post. The irony. Lolol.
Haha. Yay! I think I am going to be castrated to the next level pretty soon too if that drama dalgeoning its bananapants. 👍😂👏
Congrats!!! Enjoy your rooftop room!
@bbstl it finally happened. We can rest our thumbs now. 😂🤣
Enjoy your rooftop YY!
Thank you for alerting me, WT🐇! This is great, I have a smile a mile wide (and I do look forward to resting our thumbs)! Wooooot!
When’s the house warming party?
Congratulations! We want a party!!!!
TA DAAAA 🎺 and heartiest congratulations 🎇🎆🎇! I can’t believe the big day has finally arrived. Your rooftop is well deserved and was pursued harder than any other, I’ll wager.
You will have more guests than most at your party, so I’ll bring extra food this time
And leave the toilet paper and laundry detergent to others 😁
Really, YY – whooohooooo!!!
Thank you. Oh, gosh, I’m so excited. I’ve waited YEARS to get here.
Enjoy the view!!!
Woo hoo! You finally made it!!
Congratulations and welcome to the neighbourhood.
*Adds another skill set to LSG’s magical leprechaun repertoire*
So I swooned over the latest episode of Extraordinary You, and it inspired the latest chapter of my story. It is really romantic. Scroll down, please…
“Are you feeling all right?” His eyes are concerned, his brow furrowed.
“I just need some air.” I feel a bit sick. His scent is heady and spicy and masculine. It is making me giddy. The earthy, cloying smell of chicken feathers isn’t helping much, either.
He has a firm arm around my shoulders.
“Over here.” He leads me through the open sliding windows. People are gaping, but he ignores them. Victoria appears, and I shriek. She ignores me, and plants herself firmly in our path.
“Where are you going?” Her face is grim.
“She’s not feeling too good. I’m bringing her outside for some air.”
I lift my face, and make a cut-throat gesture across my neck with my forefinger. She gasps, and I pretend to sway on my feet, he tightens his hold on me, and we brush past her. I turn back, and stick out my tongue, cutely, at her. She turns white. Don’t mess with me, Vic. I’ll ground you to a pile of designer dust.
We are in the garden. It overlooks a pretty pond.
“There is a seat just behind us,” he says. “Shall we sit for a while?” Dim light flickers over our heads and is reflected in the water.
“Let’s just walk on,” I murmur coyly.
It’s too near the ballroom. I need to get him somewhere dark and secluded, so that 1. Victoria can’t find us, and, 2. he can unleash the primal part of him, and give in to his lust – oops, love, I mean – for poor little me.
We stroll on. The lighting is getting dimmer and dimmer. Yes!
He looks sidelong at me and his dimple appears. Why haven’t I noticed it before? Though it is more a slight crease in his cheek than a dimple. It is more manly than a dimple. And the corner of his mouth lifts. He is happy, strolling into the unknown with me, a poor little innocent waif. I stifle a giggle. If he only knew.
“There are lamps strung from some of the trees in the garden,” he says. His eyes are very dark. I think he wants to seduce me. He made up his mind the moment I said I wanted to stroll on. Aw. He’s so transparent.
“It is lovely down there. Would you like to see?” He is staring at me. There is something in his eyes, something intense.
My Candy heart is pounding.
“Are you sure you ought to go so far away from Victoria?” I ask, my eyes wide open. I am a cloud of Candy fluff. I am a pure little chicken. I am the dumbest chicken in the universe. I am about to step into the woods with a tall dark stranger. I almost want to do a high-five with him.
He blinks. He has forgotten about boring old Victoria. Tsk tsk. How feckless. I almost laugh out loud.
“You brought me out here and left her in the ballroom,” I remind him.
My eyes are sad. I watch him carefully. He swallows.
Tagging all the crazy beanies out there

@msrabbit You can scroll down my wall for the earlier chapters.
@msrabbit @mayhemf So this is the satirical story I started writing three weeks ago, in a desperate attempt to get to the rooftop. This chapter is a scene at a party held at the Cold Hot CEO’s mansion. The Candy Girl is battling for his affections with her rival, the beautiful Victoria, his fiancee. Chapters jump all over the place, and there is no logic. I hate, hate, hate the Candy girl, and watching Extraordinary You has made me hate her more.
Also isn’t it ironic that a kpop girl group idol is cast as the candy FL of Secret role? The irony just makes me chuckle so bad. They cast the epitome of candy role as their candy character.
@maybemaknae I googled and found out that she’s a kpop girl idol. She’s so pretty, and perfect. Kind of unreal-perfect. She’s so good as Sweet Candy it makes me jealous of her and hurt for Donah. I have a feeling the nice guy will win her heart in the end.
“This is my own home. I will do as I wish.” He squares his shoulders. His face is mutinous. He has decided to put her out of his mind for a little dalliance with the dumb Candy. How utterly predictable. I almost snort, but change it at the last moment to a delicate little sneeze.
“Are you cold?” he asks at once.
“A little,” I lie, and let him pull me tighter into his side. He is feeling protective. It makes him feel like a hero. My lip curls a little. How typical.
We descend the stone steps to another garden with lawns and trees and winding paths and an ornamental pool and fountain. We stroll on.
He stops. I know what he is thinking. He is wondering if he has made a mistake. The path is narrow and dark. There are no lamps strung in the tree branches here. The only light comes from the main path and from the moon above. The path is also winding and deserted.
Even the music sounds more distant from here. The voices and laughter of revellers sound a million miles away.
“I do beg your pardon,” he says. “The path is far narrower than it looks. And it is very dark. Perhaps I ought to take you back to the main avenue, Candy.”
He is lying through his teeth. He wants to stay out here with me.
“Ah, but it is lovely here,” I say dreamily. I smile a silly little smile. Lovely? Are you kidding me? A wild boar could come charging out of the woods any minute. And are those eyes I see blinking at me between the trees? Seriously, can he believe how dumb I am? “Can you hear the wind in the trees? And the birds?” There is no wind. There are no birds. All I can hear is a deafening silence, and my stomach rumbling. I had a LOT of wine.
The moon is almost full. There must be a million stars up there. And if I tip my head right back, I can see a surprising number of them.
I tip my head back for the kill.
I draw a deep, deep breath.
“Look at the stars,” I say. My voice is perfectly pitched, it is a little breathless, with a tinge of awe.
We are in a small clearing, and he turns his head. I have angled myself so that my face is bathed in moonlight. I think of Dongmae in Mr. Sunshine staring at the girl he loves with wonder in his eyes, and just like that, I feel my eyes shining with the wonder of it. I turn my face to share the wonder with him. I smile, but not with my usual bright and brave Candy smile. This time, I make my smile more dreamy, more…intimate. As if we are sharing some very precious secret.
“I am looking,” he says. But it is not at the stars he is gazing any longer, but into my eyes. And why is he whispering? My lips part, and the moonlight gleams on them.
“Isn’t it lovely, oh – ”
For he has bent his head down to mine and kissed me.
“Babe.” My voice is barely a whisper. But he breaks the kiss at once, and recoils. Damn it.
“Candy,” he says softly. His eyes are filled with guilt. “I shouldn’t have done that. Forgive me.”
What the hell?
“What do you mean?” My voice is shaking. I am so mad that he stopped kissing me.
Take my heart woman. A dongmae shipper that gets tears in her eyes the instant she thinks of him….
Ah, THIS. The look. I loved Dongmae.
Me2! I have him on my phone… I loved him so much.
“I shouldn’t have kissed you.” His face is a picture of misery. “I – I am not free. I am engaged to Victoria.”
What the hell??!!!
“It’s okay.” I flutter my eyelashes sadly. I swallow down my rage. “I’ll pretend we never – it never happened.” Yeah, right. You lying, cheating asshole, I’m going to make you pay.
“We should go back.” His face is white.
“Yes, we should.” My voice is broken. I look at him under my lashes. I say sweetly, wistfully, “You won’t want to keep your fiancéé waiting…”
He flinches, as if I have struck him. Yes!
We walk in silence and when we reach the stone steps, I run the rest of the way, leaving him behind. Candy always does that. She stumbles away from the man she loves, a man who belongs to someone else, forbidden to her. She stumbles away, tears in her eyes, her breaths fractured, her heart breaking a little with each stumbling step.
Me? I run, because dammit, my bladder’s fit to burst with all that expensive wine I guzzled. I run like the wind, because I can’t fight it anymore, what I’ve been trying to curb all night. I let it out, finally. I unleash the beast. It bubbles up my windpipe, and rips past my throat in an almighty explosion.
Clap clap clap!!!!! bravo – did Candy make it to the bathroom in time or did the belch help let out all that steam? or stream…
Steam and stream…can you imagine her face? Lolol.
You are such a romantic!
Sigh. Tell me about it.
The revenge of the champagne. 😉
Just the right tone for a romance.
Cue up Spike Jones’s rendition of “You Always Hurt the One You Love.” There’s nothing like a little mood music. 😉
Danoh mouths, What are you looking at?
Haru mouths back, You.
LEGIT I SQUEALED TOO. *Sorry broke my caps there for a moment.
I squealed a whole lot in these two episodes! Haru is soooooo swooooooon worthy. It gets harder to breathe
I loveeeee this show so much. I laughed and cried and my heart broke so many times.
Auuugh I know such a roller coaster of emotions and I loved the two hour ride.
😪 waiting again……
So @mayhemf is raving about Scowling Kyung and @katakwasabi is raving about Rock Candy Mr. G. My two fav SLS ships are bound for the rocks, but why am I so excited????
Because if the ship tank, you can ship him with yourself? 😁🤞😋😉
Tank or not, they’re mine. *Beams*
lol.. why mix ships.. manga lead and second lead will not change..
it is the story of extras where you need to spend time on and choose your pick.. i could tell you who the end game is 😛
Maybe because you have masochistic tendencies. Oh sweet pain 😜😆
Here it is, your latest update on The Cold Hot CEO and the Errand Boy Girl. Scroll down..
I’m all dressed up for a party.
I don’t know what’s going on.
I mean, the last thing I remember was the creaking sound I heard in the bedroom. And now, I’m here standing in front of the mirror, looking at my reflection.
I’ll think about it later.
Let me describe what I see in the mirror.
I am a vision of loveliness. I can’t believe that it’s me. I’m the ugly duckling transformed into a beautiful swan. I can’t even –
I’m all choked up.
This is it.
That Candy Moment.
It’s the moment where she glides down the grand staircase, and he’s standing down in the great hall, and everybody’s chatting, and murmuring, and laughing, and sipping from tall glasses of sparkling bubbly – and then there’s a hush…and Cinderella aka Candy Girl appears, there’s a gasp, and he looks up, and freezes, his eyes fill with shock, and quicken to a breathless interest.
It’s the moment he thinks, Is this Stinky Poo? But she’s beautiful! And his heart skips a beat. And then he starts to feel jealous. The other guy, the second lead, is staring at her, and the Cold Hot guy hates it, he hates his friend staring at her, and he leaps forward to claim her for the first dance, but the sweet second lead always manages to beat him to it.
Too bad there’s no second lead here. I need me a Mr. G, tall, dark and handsome, but he’s stuck in Vagabond. Damn it!
I drift on faery wings down the stairs.
I’m so behind on reading this ahhh I need to catch up. Mianhae
Haha i knew this fairytale was too good too be true. Back to the pain and gory details below.. you got me candy!
He’s down there, standing at the tall glass window, his dark head half-hidden. I float down, light as a feather, my stomach fluttering like the beating of butterfly wings.
Wait for it.
The eyes popping out.
The mouths falling open.
The hands flying to the open mouths.
The envy in the women’s eyes, the admiration in the men’s.
Slowly, he turns.
He take two steps forward, then another.
We meet on his fourth step, and my first.
Our eyes hold.
What a magical moment!
Someone’s playing that Winter Sonata melody. Hm.
Over on the stage, someone starts to sing. It’s Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight”. What a fitting song. I have never felt more beautiful in my life.
I smile softly at him.
I give a cute little twirl. I almost fall. The room is spinning like crazy.
He looks as if he has stopped breathing.
My beauty has sucked away his breath.
“You look… ,” he says faintly.
I pretend to be shy, I bite my lips a couple of times, and clasp and unclasp my callused hands. I clear my throat cutely. I blink, and flutter my eyelashes madly.
“You look…like a swan…” Aw.
“I know, babe. I know.”
“I mean, you really do look like a swan…all those feathers…” His voice is choked with disbelief.
I understand what he’s feeling.
My gown is a dream
It’s a rich earthy brown, with splashes of inky black, made from the finest chicken feathers. They breed only brown and black feathered chickens on the chicken farm I help out at on weekends. I’ve got a few more sticking out my hair, spanning out like a fan. My skirt billows out like a sail – more feathers – just above my knees. That’s why I’m so light, I’m practically floating
“How,” he clears his throat, “did you get this gown?”
“I made it myself, babe. I help out at a chicken farm on weekends.” There’s a flash of pain in his eyes, it hurts him to know how hard I work.
I preen myself a little, and let out a cute breath. My fringe flutters, and the feathers swish and rustle.
He can’t take his eyes off me. I know how he feels. I can’t take my eyes off myself, too.
“I – see.” He looks like he’s about to faint from desire. “I’ve never – never seen anything quite like it.”
I am blushing. I can’t even look at him.
“Babe, I’ve never danced before.” I look at him wistfully. I am a sad little chicken.
He’s still staring.
“Babe. Dance. Now,” I bark.
I grab him, and we start to dance.
Well, kind of, anyway.
I can’t dance. I’ve got two left errand boy girl feet.
This is going to be a disaster.
Hm. I’ve got an idea. Jangdi did it in BoF.
“Ouch.” Babe is groaning. He’s such a wimp.
I grit my teeth.
“Move,” I growl. “Dance.”
It’s hard, but he does it. Finally.
We are lurching, shuffling from side to side.
It’s so romantic.
I’ve got my killer heels planted firmly on both of his branded leather shoes. I clamp my hardened, leathery fingers on his broad, muscled shoulders. He’s so hot.
“It hurts. I am in so much pain,” he whispers, stirring the feathers clustered like puffy clouds around my collarbone, his hands trembling a little on my fluffy, downy back. “Oh, shit, it hurts so much. Oh, God, I think my feet are broken.”
His breath is warm on my face. His voice is a sob, a low groan of anguish that filters through a blurry haze of enchantment.
Everybody is staring at us.
I wish, oh I wish this wonderful night would never end.
Preening was a stroke of geeeeenious. Hot Cold CEO will never be able to live without her now that he’s seen her true beauty in the feather gown. She’s hardworking and creative too. Nope, he’ll never be able to pass up that magical combination.
He is totally head over heels…
Never mind the two broken feet that will keep him hobbled.
That was from BoF, too. Who, for the love of God, dances like that????
I was feeling all nice and warm inside at this Cinderella story ☺️ until Candy started fluttering her eyelashes like mad. That was the warning signal that this was all Hot Cold CEO’s dream/nightmare.
“I’ve never danced before“ and the “plan.” You evil genius! Just how many dramas are you going to shoehorn into this story? The more the better.
Yes. I have all the time in the world. Looks like I’m stuck as Errand Boy forever. 😠😠😠😠
I swore that as soon as you passed 4700 comments the magic would happen. But no ☹️ I so don’t get this.
Comment was deleted
Maybe the powers that be in Dramabean-land don’t want our errand/boy girl move so they can read more of this story themselves.
That, or you might get ‘tarred and feathered’ at some point.
or is it feathered and tarred?
I think you need to hang out in the recap section for a few weeks. I bet that would do it.
No worries. I have plenty to say for Extraordinary You – real stuff, not the fake stuff I’ve been conning DB with in the recaps that I’ve latched onto.
All the tropes and all the genres… YY’s version of the Tasks of Hercules, or of Sisyphus.
How in the world did you come up with the idea for the dress? I never could have!
BoF. Jangdi wore this godawful dress with fur lining…or maybe I imagined it wrong. It was sooooooo awful, and so weird, and she came down the stairs, and everybody fell silent, and her face was so sickeningly fake-bashful, like look at me, I’m soooo beautiful. I felt sick.
Hmmm. I must have blacked out on the dress. I got the BoF and Jandi references, but brown and black chicken feathers and the description…wow.
whre did you get this sketch from? is it an existing sketch you found or you created it?
He is soooo handsome
I googled and found it on handsome manga men images.
My heart just fluttered like crazy for Mr. G(orgeous) and Haeri….shipping this couple so much…ahhhh
I like the name you gave him! I’m on board this ship! High 5 ship mate! 🚢
Do you think it is possible for them to be together? I saw a drama once where the girl was in love with this hot guy until the final two episodes, and then she realised it was the other guy that she loved.
Maybe Suzy will fall in love with him, and he obviously likes her, and LSG, too, and Mr. G diesssssss, and in the end she’s left with LSG.
I feel the chemistry between Suzy and SSR is sizzling, maybe because I’m in love with SSR…he’s so tall and lean and charismatic my heart flutters like mad every scene he appears…and his voice, so deep and resonant, is to die for. Suzy and LSG are more friendly, sweet, chummy, and she’s so comfortable with him. I love the awkwardness between her and Mr. G…it’s soooo romantic..
There is a possibility for them to be together if the writer wants to be different. I will stay on this ship until there is no longer a ship to be sailed. There’s still hope now for rock candy, but not high hopes. Haha
Also Mr G will not die. He won’t. He can’t. I’m sad he’s injured, if he dies it will be TLE ending all over again. And I will be even more sad 😢.
Have they completed filming, or is it ongoing? Because if it is ongoing, there is always a chance. Look at what happened in TLE. The best thing ever. It made me crazy over the show when they started to give him more and more airtime.
This was filmed before TLE happened. They filmed around mid last year to May this year. And it is preproduced. I don’t think his airtime will increase significantly. But I really hope he gets more airtime.
I fear the SS Rock Candy is doomed
It was always doomed LT. It’s the fate of a supporting character 😢. But we can dream of it happening in an alternate universe. Hahaha
I am as always on a sea or island of neutrality but if Candy is going to romance, I would prefer she romance the Rock rather than the Rockhead.
I harbour hope, this ship has to sail…if only to prove that the second lead CAN get the girl in a spy thriller…and I’m deluding myself…*CRIES*
Is anyone watching Extraordinary You? I love it! It makes me hate the Errand Girl more!!!!
I watched ep 1! It’s where this baby hot cold CEO and candy gif came from 🤣
She is so annoying. It’s a show after my own heart. And it’s so heartbreaking and hilarious at the same time. The fiance and her are sooo romantic. It’s like my story, how weird is that??
*chuckles* ummmm, in your dreams 🤦🏻♀️
Just finish week 1. I like it too. Hope it continue to be fun… 🤞
This is so romantic. I feel like I’m making my own drama with SSR and Suzy. Shades of the tragic 2nd lead syndrome in Scarlet Heart. Wook and Haesu had chemistry to die for in a library too..
I was just going to post this picture. What on earth could be the reason for Suzy’s outfit here? I’m excited to find out!
She is a beautiful spy. She must wear a black hoodie to blend in with the books.
But Wook was slime
I know, right. Wook was one of the most exciting characters in korean drama, much like Hyuk in TLE. The first part of Scarlet Heart, they built him into such a beautiful, grieving hero with that forbidden love spark with IU, I just fell for him…then he turned into someone so dark in the second half. I love that kind of character, grey with edges.
Yea, I’d say that his portrayal of the character was definitely more dark, while Kevin Cheng’s portrayal of the character was more sinister….
Comparatively, the production crew and the casting director of the Korean version definitely treated this as more of a chance to cast a younger group of people, with very few veterans, and only 1 new gen. veteran (Lee Joon Gi) to carry the young and inexperienced cast; Whereas, for the Chinese version, there’s definitely a bigger chunk of the cast that was veteran status and held more gravitas in their acting and portrayal of the characters
SSR is shippable with any character in his dramas. Proof: the last empress, Perfume, 3 dads 1 mum….and many more 🤣
That is the kind of character he excels in, dark and brooding, with sadness in his eyes. Please, make a drama for him with this kind of character.
SSR doin his magic again)) This is last empress for me all over again 😍
We are all Second Lead Syndrome shippers. Again. Love it!

Latest update on The Cold Hot CEO and the Candy Boy Girl. Scroll below…
“Babeeee!” I shriek.
I am running prettily like Suzy in Vagabond, my hair flying in the wind, my breaths coming in gasps.
Pause to think.
How on earth did I find time to watch Suzy in Vagabond when I hadn’t even had time to sleep these past two – no, three…four or more days?
I don’t know. I can’t think straight anymore.
How on earth did I get out of the bathroom? That Veronica thing was swinging a sword at my head.
One minute, I’m in there. The next, I’m out, running, running, running.
I can hear her footsteps pounding behind me. Bare feet, slapping on the tiles.
Maybe this is a nightmare.
I’ll pinch myself.
I’m still running.
Slap. Slap. Slap.
She’s gaining on me. You know, like that scene in Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, with that dumb, pea-brained girl walking down a dark alley, and the psycho following her from behind, and she starts to panic, and starts to hurry, and the footsteps start to pick up in pace, and then she’s running, and he starts running, too, and I’m so crazy scared I holler, “That’ll teach you, you dummy, you’re so dumb you’re getting what you deserve!”
I run smack into something hard.
I scream and scream my lungs out.
This is it.
Cut down in the prime of my candihood.
I’ll go down fighting.
Candy boygirls are brave.Candy boygirls are strong.
Candy boygirls have hands encased in iron, tipped with talons for fingers, forged by an eternity of hard, endless, bone-breaking labour.
I sink my fingernails deep into the body imprisoning me.
“Oof.” I hear a yelp. “Ouch.”
It can’t be.
He’s holding me in his strong arms.
“I’ve got you.” His grip tightens.
This is the tricky part.
When the Candy Girl is embraced by the Cold Hot Guy, she reacts in any one of, or a combination of, or, in most likelihood, ALL of the following ways.
1. She freezes.
2. She pushes at him weakly with balled fists (Note: Balled fists are way cuter), but he holds her tighter, refusing to let her go.
3. She splutters, and huffs cutely, and says dumb stuff in a cute, helpless way. “What are you doing?” “Let me go.” “How dare you!” She may say one, two, or ALL of these three things, because this is the foolproof, guaranteed way to drive viewers insane with annoyance. Candy girls live to drive viewers insane with annoyance.
4. She struggles helplessly for a while, when she knows jolly well all she has to do is to knee him in the crown jewels to get him to release her, but does she do that? Nope. Never. Why? BECAUSE SHE’S JUST PRETENDING TO BE MAD AND OMG, IT MAKES ME SO, SO MAD SEEING HER FAKENESS!!!
Did CH CEO drug the omelette?
This must be a halucination right?
Awesome new word – candihood! I love it.
Anyway, where was I?
Cold Hot Guy is embracing me.
“What’s wrong?” he says soothingly.
I look around.
There’s no one there.
“Babe.” My voice is like sandpaper. That’s what happens when you speak in a syrupy-sweet Candy voice for days on end, and scream your lungs out for ten minutes straight. “Veronica chased me. She was right behind me. She’s a crazy psycho killer. She wanted to kill me. With the samurai sword.”
“Yeah. She said her name’s Veronica. Is she Victoria’s twin?”
“Victoria is an only child.” He frowns. “Were you sleepwalking?”
He thinks I dreamt the whole thing.
I am hurt.
I bat my eyelashes, and swallow my tears and bite my trembling lips. I almost want to stick out my tongue, but remember in time that Candy Girls only stick out their tongues, complete with a cute pout, in happy times, like when they are staggering about drunk, and tottering unsteadily on their heels.
“She was here.” I drag him to the bathroom.
There’s no one there.
“Right here.” My voice trails off. “She was hiding. Right here.”
But the bathroom is empty.
“I saw her here in the mirror. I was standing right here. And then I looked up and there she was. Standing behind me. Looking right at me.”
I look up.
She’s standing there.
She’s standing behind us.
She looks horrible. Her hair is matted. Her eyes are big red globes of red. I can see the veins in her forehead. Her hands are claws. Her face is a twisted mask of malevolence and rage. I have never seen anyone so ugly in my life. She is even uglier than The Bride of Chucky.
I scream and scream and scream.
“Hey, stop. Stop. It’s okay, Candy.” My babe is shaking me. “Candy, Candy, it’s okay. There’s no one behind you.”
“But there is, there is!” I scream. “She’s there!” I point. “Standing right there. Don’t you see her?”
“Oh, that,” he says awkwardly, and coughs, “that’s just – ” and it hits me.
That ugly creature, the stuff nightmares are made of, is – me.
“Oh. Right. Sorry.” I stare at his chest. I’m in his arms. He must have hugged me again. Or maybe I jumped on him. “I’m a bit, um, tense. Sorry.”
“Hey.” He keeps his arms around me. I turn and bury my face against his shoulder, I let my whole body shake with the sobs. “Hey, hey there…,” he says again, but this time his voice comes to me through his chest wall, deeper and softer, and somehow slower. His hand hovers above my shoulder, and then settles, very gently, on my hair. “Candy, it’s going to be okay.”
It is that one word, Candy, that brings me back to my senses, reminding me of who I am, and who he is, and what I am doing here. I gulp furiously (and cutely, of course) and take a step back, wiping my eyes on my sleeve.
“Oh my God, babe, I’m so s-sorry.”
“It’s okay. You’re okay. I’m here. And I’ll take care of you.” His brow is creasing with each word that’s coming out of his mouth.
“I won’t let go of you – ” He claps his hands over his mouth.
He looks at me. His eyes are agonised.
“What’s wrong, babe?” I know it’s because he’s torn between his love for me, and his obligations to his family and Victoria.
“Have you ever felt that you are being forced to say things against your will? Like someone is putting words into your mouth? Like you’re a – a character in a story? Like something is wrong, but you can’t put your finger on it? Like someone is writing a story of your life, and nothing makes sense?”
He runs a trembling hand over his hair. “Like we’ve been trapped in this house for ages?” He licks his lips. “And we don’t know what time it is? And I should be going to work now, but all I do is sleep, and wake up, and lie down in bed, and one minute, I’m in my bedroom, and the next I’m here, with you?”
His eyes are wild.
“What the heck is going on?”
“Maybe we’re dreaming, babe. And you know what’s weird, babe?” I whisper.
“Azzo and her Oppa came just a while ago, and now – and now…” Both of us turn and look at the empty sofa. “And now they’re gone.”
It’s coming from the bedroom.
There it is again.
Something – or someone – is in there.
Hey! What happened to the sword?
I think she was imagining it all, Oppa and I might be her imagination as well! Her mind is playing tricks on her.. she’s slowly losing it, she couldn’t recognize herself.. very sad!
Maybe I’ll make you the serial killer in the next chapter.
Me, a serial killer? Nah, you wouldn’t do that! What would happen to Oppa then?
Also, what is all that creaking 😨
@azzo1 Are you afraid?
I don’t know.. should I be?
@azzo1 Hm. An honest answer. Should you be afraid? I don’t know, either. Maybe we should ask Oppa. Oppa who? Sorry. Just talked to myself.
@azzo1 maybe the creaking is the knees of Cold Hot CEO’s chaebol father? The one who spotted you a few weeks ago and decided Candy errand boygirl would be the perfect hard working mate to his son?
Our Candy is sliding though the universe of genres! She’s currently (potentially) in a horror genre…
So is she like.. possessed? By Veronica’s ghost?
Yeah. It’s descended into chaos. Throw in everything, and make everybody confused.
@azzo1 That’s creepy. * shivers* You’re scaring me. 🤤
@yyishere I’m scaring you? and this “Her hair is matted. Her eyes are big red globes of red. I can see the veins in her forehead. Her hands are claws. Her face is a twisted mask of malevolence and rage” isn’t creepy to you? Umm.. okay!
My thought all along. Things descended into madness a long time ago—like when we first met Victoria/Veronica. She’s been dreaming or was knocked out when Victoria came over, and Hot-cold CEO with Victoria’s help took the sword and bludgeoned her while she was in the closet looking for clothes to dress her neckid a$$. Still waiting for her true love (in the form of Park Hae Jin) to arrive and rescue her from the closet (as they tied her up and left her there unconscious.).
See, ally, you just made me laugh my head off again.
If I say it enough, it’ll be true.
Sheesh. Don’t think too much. 😬
No,Candy! Don’t open that door!
“Cut down in the prime of my candihood”. 😂😂
But of course it’s a dream or parallel universe: HC CEO frowned. *gasp* This is the first time he’s ever frowned at Candy.
Just then, the mirror cracks from side to side.
Cue up “Superstition” by Stevie Wonder and crank your speakers up to 11, Errand Boy Girl. It will blow out the cobwebs and have you feeling better in no time.
I read “Satisfaction” by mistake, and immediately Mick Jagger’s voice started growling in my head…
“Satisfaction” works, too. But I think Errand Boy Girl is actually in the midst of her “19th Nervous Breakdown.” 😉
He IS sweet, isn’t he? I have a soft spot for him. I imagine him befuddled in a cute way.
Candihood is my new favorite word.
I had a great laugh. Thank you for helping in abating my anxiety .
Always glad to be of service. 😂
Vagabond, my version, with SSR and Suzy scenes only. She’s the girl crushing on her cold, sad boss. He is beautifully sad. My heart does a flip- flop everytime he appears. And this kiss, omg…
Was any spinach involved?
It was a good dead lamppost kiss. Skin drawn over teeth. Mouth zipped up. Eyes screwed shut. A top-notch Candy Kiss. Yes!
Latest update with new characters that you’ll love. Scroll down for the story.
“Babe. There’s someone at the door.”
“Babe. Go get the door.”
I love him, I do. But, sometimes, sometimes, I just want to…
I take a deep breath. Inhale. Exhale. Good. Better.
Aw, he looks so cute, his hair flopping over his eyes. He looks like Jang hyuk in Fated. I love you, Jang hyuk. Sorry, babe. My heart is big enough for the two of you. A tear rolls down my face.
I wonder who it is.
It can’t be her.
I chew my lip. I didn’t really see her leave. I don’t remember her leaving. I’m so tired. I can’t think straight anymore. Sometimes, I get memory lapses when I’m tired. Like there are whole chunks of stuff missing from my head. Take last week, for instance. I’m on my rounds, and I’m delivering chicken to this cranky crazy woman, Lady Egads, who lives in a swanky rooftop apartment, and she’s yelling in my face, “Why are you so slow? Why are you so slow? Why are you so slow?” and then I blink, and I’m in that hole I call home lying on the floor.
And there was this morning. I came back with my babe, and the samurai sword was missing. Did I keep it? I don’t remember.
I stare at the monitor. I gasp.
I whip open the door.
“Azzo? What the heck are you doing here?”
She pushes past me, before I can shut the door in her face. And that’s when I see she’s not alone.
There’s a guy with her.
He looks familiar.
“Shut the door, Candy.” She’s sitting on the sofa. She lools nervous.
I lock the door.
“This is Oppa.”
“The guy I like. Remember?” Her eyes dart to and fro. “The guy of my dreams. My forever Oppa.” She says it in a sing-song way. It gives me the creeps, hearing her say it that way.
Azzo used to be an Errand Boygirl. That’s how we met. But she worked hard, and quit her job. Last I heard she was living on a rooftop.
“Is he okay?” He looks kind of dazed, his eyes are glassy, and, gasp! are those handcuffs on his wrist? Hey, she’s got a handcuff on her own wrist, too! What the heck is going on?
“Hey, Azzo,” I say weakly. “Um, what’s that on your – you know?” I point to the handcuff.
“This?” She shrugs. “He gets kind of lost when I’m not around, so I decided to keep him close.”
“Oh.” I swallow. “Great.” I smile sickly. “Couple cuffs, huh?”
“Yeah.” She smiles fondly at him. He blinks. And just for a moment, I think it’s my babe sitting there. He’s got that same look of confusion in his eyes.
“So why are you here? I mean, how do you even know I’m here? We haven’t seen each other in months – ”
“Honestly? I’m not sure either. One minute I’m on my rooftop, and the next I’m here.”
We’re silent for a while.
“I’ll get you a drink,” I say brightly. “What would Oppa like?” He’s staring into space. “He doesn’t talk much, huh?”
Memory gaps, hmmm? Is our Candy *gasp* a character in a web toon? But what about Lady Egads or Azzo? *GASP* ARE WE ALL CHARACTERS ON A STAGE?
“I can’t think straight anymore. Sometimes, I get memory lapses when I’m tired. Like there are whole chunks of stuff missing from my head.” This made me LOL 😂
“Water,” she says, “and a beer for Oppa.”
“A beer? You sure? Cos he looks kind of odd – ”
“He’s fine. He’s just happy, he always looks like that when he’s with me.”
And then it hits me.
Babe has that same look, too.
Are they – connected, somehow?
I fetch a glass of water and an iced beer for Oppa.
“Excuse me,” I say. “I’ll just go wash my face. I’ll be right back.”
I splash cold water on my face. And when I look up, something flashes in my eye. A silvery glint. I stare straight into the mirror.
I rub my eyes. I blink.
Standing right behind me.
“Victoria?” My voice is barely a whisper.
“Not Victoria.” Her face splits into a terrifying grin. “Veronica.”
She closes her hand around the samurai sword.
There is a roaring in my ears.
And then she comes charging at me.
Oh no! Look out Candy Errand Boygirl!
I love how the threads are all coming together. We have an explanation of why Park Hae Jin is missing from our screens, why you should be kind to errand boygirls and why you shouldn’t wish to see yourself in the Cold Hot CEO story.
VERONICA IS FINALLY HERE!
And OMG, is CH and Oppa connected? Like twins or something?
OMG!!!! It could be? Seeing how, at one time, she was so obsessed with my Oppa, maybe she’s not over him yet!
Candy should be over your Oppa, Azzo! She already has CH and we don’t want to ruin the balance in her life by giving her another Hot Oppa!
So you are telling me that she actually has balance in her life?!
I’m so excited! The return of the samurai sword!!!! 🤩 🤪 🤭
It’s mindboggling why you guys are reading my deranged story.
I hafta admit I’m mind boggled about that too!!!! LOL.
YAY! Oppa and I are making a cameo!
But don’t you dare make Oppa a victim, okay? He’s happy, he’s always been, with me, I am his biggest dream come true!
I think we’re gonna have a bigger part here, Veronica is here and she’s charging at you with the Samurai sword, will I jump at her with a flying kick, or knock her out with a mean punch? Getting excited!
P.S We met when were both Jang Geu-rae 💔
P.P.S I love you for the “water for me” part, you know I don’t drink ❤
I’m sorry I broke your heart. I can’t write, We met when she was a Jang geurae. It would sound weird. Does a Jang geurae have a job? What is a Jang geurae, anyway?
Jang Geu-rae is an intern at a large company and is just as hard working as a Candy *sulks*
Also, you don’t know who Jang Geu-rae is? Misaeng? No? Really? Because I remember joking about this before, is your temporary amnesia back? Or is it the stress that’s giving you selective memory loss!
Never watched Misaeng. Seriously, don’t have a clue who Jang Geu rae is. 😏
You should watch it Candy Errand Girl!
It means you and Azzo met back when you were hardworking interns. You polished shoes, made photocopies, shuttled coffee, corrected typos, fought on the rooftop, came up with brilliant business proposals, and sold underwear in the streets.
@wishfultoki Why underwear? Why can’t we sell scarves or bags?
@yyishere Misaeng is really and truly worth watching – the story never gets old and it has a great cast.
other than that – I’m beginning to feel lost – maybe I should go back and re-read how I missed Oppa and the sword! ack (or maybe another cup of coffee?)
Wohoo I am glad at your cameo, I am so excited for what happens next!!
The story is getting exciting now. What a cliffhanger! I loved the cameo by @azzo1 and Oppa.
And also how Candy had to go splash her face with cold water to think.
I’m hoping that my short cameo will be epic, something that everyone will remember, like I’ll throw myself in front of her and hold that blade with my bare hands and save her from Veronica!
Do you want Oppa to sacrifice himself for you? He could jump in front of you and block that blade with his abs. * BEAMS*
No! I don’t want to put Oppa in danger! Maybe CH CEO can come do that instead! Btw, he didn’t come say hi to us, how rude!
And the sword returns! Much needed cameos and meta references! A kdrama can’t survive without them!
Whereupon the doorbell rings again. It’s Magic Horse, searching vain for Carrot Boy, who is shooting the rapids on the River Styx in a remake of ARANG AND THE MAGISTRATE.
Oooooooh! I’m starting to think that it’s Samurai Sword (TM) PPL! That’s why the sword keeps popping up.
It’s this season’s hot accessory, looks cool hanging on the wall. But can be used to chop wood, or onions, or whatever the circumstances call for.
Brilliant deduction, Holmes!
It’s just the katana you need for portioning SubWeys, carving Thanksgiving turkeys, and cutting wedding cakes. Get yours today — the Ronco Samurai Slicer (TM). Works great when trimming your Buddleia bushes, too.
Here’s the latest update, guys.
Yeah, still here.
Oh, thank heavens.
His eyes open.
“Babe, it’s me.”
“Candy?” I’m crying.
He’s calling me Candy. Not Zit face, or Monkey Face or Stinky Poo.
I feel a jolt of happiness.
“How’re you feeling, babe?”
“I – I – ” He runs a hand over his eyes. “I feel so tired. Drained. My legs…my legs…” He struggles up, his eyes filled with panic. “I can’t feel my legs…!”
“Chill, babe.” I pat him. “That’s because I’m sitting on them. Been sitting for the past hour.” I smile cutely. “That’s how long you’ve been out, babe.
“Oh, thank God.” He collapses back against the pillows. “For a moment I thought – I thought – ” He draws a shaky breath.
“I’d never let anything happen to you, babe.” I put my forehead to his. “I’d cut off my two legs and break my ankles and slice off my tongue and all ten fingers before I’d let anything bad happen to you.” My eyes fill with tears.
He looks faint. Love can be over-powering sometimes, and looking at his white face, I know he’s overcome by the rush of love he feels for me.
I feel something warm and wet slide between our noses.
“Am I bleeding?”
“My head, babe. The hole they patched up. Is it bleeding?”
“No, it’s not.”
I do ten push-ups. Take a five-minute nap. Brush my teeth. Practise my cute Candy smile in the mirror. And then I look at the time and twenty minutes have passed.
He’s still staring at my face.
“So if my head’s okay, then what’s this wet stuff on my face?”
“Focus, babe. Quit spacing out.”
“So what’s with the wet stuff on my face?”
“Oh, hang on.” I love him, I do, but sometimes, he can be just a teeny-weeny bitsy bit maddening.
“Ah? What? What?”
“THE WHAT? WHAAT?? WHAAAATTT???? JUST FREAKING SAY IT OMG ALREADY!”
“Yeah, it broke.”
I feel sad suddenly.
That zit was beautiful. It glowed like a snow-capped Mount Fuji. And now it’s broken. SPLAT! Gone, just like that. Life can be so transient.
“You ready to leave?”
“Yeah, the doc says you were suffering from exhaustion and dehydration. He says you’re fine. You just need lots of TLC.”
We’re on the way back to his condo.
People keep staring at us.
Love’s like that. Couples in love float in a bubble. They’re in a world of their own. Love’s an aura that surrounds us. I catch a few incredulous glances, and more than one gasp. We pass a bitchy-looking girl who gapes at us. “Jealousy’s bad for the soul, hun,” I wink at her cutely. “Can’t help it if my man’s a gorgeous hunk.” We sail past her. She claps a hand to her mouth. She’s floored by my smugness.
We’re almost there.
I clench my teeth. I wipe the sweat off my brow.
I hoist his butt up. He tightens his arms around my neck.
“Hold on, babe. Just a few more steps.”
My knees are buckling with the weight of him on my back. My spine is creaking. I can’t breathe that well.
But it’s okay.
He ain’t heavy. He’s my babe.
So, did our candy get any treatment for her own mortal wound? Or was that all in her head? Nonexistent head.
You are making me laugh again. It’s so ally – ly.
I’m glad he’s still alive. But I guess candy girl will die in his arms at the condo next. And he will be free~~~~ ahahaha
If she dies, our Candy will be one of those ghosts with unfinished business, hanging around CH and getting more grudge filled over time…
Shades of Eun Chan carrying Han Kyul all the way to his house and then all the way back to her place…
Hmmm… I wonder what our Candy’s place looks like? Is she a *gasp* rooftop dweller?
Hmmm… the mind boggles at what might be in that room…
“That zit was beautiful. It glowed like a snow-capped Mount Fuji. And now it’s broken. SPLAT! Gone, just like that. Life can be so transient.“
That’s so poetic. So elegiac. Feels like there’s an Ode to a Zit behind there somewhere.
Not when you pull up db during your lunch hour , it isn’t
the zit part made me squirm so bad!
Candy Errand Boy Girl is such a sweet talker, isn’t she?
Mandatory “Where is Veronica and the other twins?” comment here.
I like the reverse piggy back. Candy’s legs would be numb and unusable before CH even dies. That’s true love right there.
That’s the thing with stories. Keep characters to a bare minimum. The more characters you put in, the more things you’d have to write. Gah. I remember writing a story in school when I was 17. The title of the essay was Homecoming. I was too lazy to write more than one character, because I would have to have all these characters interact with one another. I would have to have speech marks and conversations, and I was just soooo lazyyyy. So my essay had only one character, about a man who had come home to his dead-end hometown after years of being away. No dialogue, just his thoughts throughout. He questioned the existence of God and religion. Best essay ever. I scored an A.
Are we getting the next episode of CH CEO with just CH’s monologue!? CAN’T WAIT FOR AN A++ UPDATE
You should make a spinoff with Veronica and the triplets. But I hope you level up before that even happens.
What if the heavy hunk is suddenly energised & just eats candy? 🍬 She’ll be gone in a glob…
a zit-stained candy..yuckk 😀
The zit burst. He’d clean her up then gobble.
I just want you to know that in the center of the US there is someone who checks your stats every morning and night and yells “nooooooooo!”
Your imagery is so strong, YY! Thank goodness there are emojis for me to portray the climax of your story 🗻 ➡️ 🌋
Hahahaha Laughed my head off.
Don’t tell me we’ll lose our Candy errand Boy/girl? She will survive this, YOU HEAR ME!
She has legs of steel, she will get through this, she’ll get her rooftop and she WILL LIVE happily ever after!
Candies are strong, Candies don’t die!
Ah the zit has made an explosive reappearance … or was it just a sad splat?
@yyishere Do you think there’s a conspiracy to keep you longer running Errands so that this saga can rival the longest cdrama’s?
What are those things on that manly chest? Are they…um…um….*THINKING HARD* *GASPS* ABS? Because it’s been so long since I’ve seen them in a drama, I can’t remember what they’re called.
Am I the only one who think that is makeup abs? Hahaha
No you are not!
You know what? I think you are right. They look too flat to be real abs. Fake abs, eh? I feel cheated.
Oh good, I thought I was the only one…. needs a better makeup artist
How do we make sure our guy doesn’t get stuck with a feminine image? Display its antithesis for the world🗺to see…. ABS.
This is gonna be so much fun!
@katakwasabi the abs expert thinks they’re painted on. They look too flat. And I said all that already. How dare he paint his abs???? * SHAKES FIST*
Hahaha “the abs experts”
I’m an abs expert??? 😱
Yes, you are. You saw through the fake abs, 🤣🤣🤣🤣
What does YY stand for btw?
I agree. They’re painted on. A la Cardi B Just had my baby but rock solid abs style.
Two of me in me. Good Y and Evil Y.
Do you have a cameo in this one?
what is a YY cameo, by the way? i always wonder this.
Oh, in between running errands, I take on cameos to make ends meet. I was The Sky in That Winter The Wind Blows, an island and a wok, among many other cameos. I don’t talk much, I’m just there. I’m famous for my realistic cameos….@pakalanapikake feels I excel at playing geographical features. 😏😏😏😏
@yyishere has portrayed the sageuk Cliff Of Non-Doom (the one in ARANG AND THE MAGISTRATE, MOON LOVERS, REBEL, and other shows) as well as The Island in TOP STAR YOO BAEK, and a couple of iterations of the Truck Of Doom, IIRC. More roles than I can remember, actually. She’s recently spoken about possibly cameoing as a tree, but I don’t recall which drama that was in. 😉
You are such a fangirl! I want to be a tree in that new sageuk coming up, yes.
Hm, nothing appeals to me…
ive started watching seven-day queen for the first time, and in the scene where she finds the king out swimming in the pool, they do this lonnnng ab-pan, and i was like what is happening?? oh that’s right, dramas used to have these
Lolllll. The question is, did he have anything to show off?
Wanted to share my selfie with you.
“Look. At. Me.”
“What do you see?”
“There’s a hole where you head used to be.”
“Your face’s all red.”
“Why do you think it’s red?”
“I don’t blush.”
“I’m bleeding. There’s a hole in my head. I’m freaking bleeding to death here, babe.”
“Oh, hell. Shit. Oh shit.”
“Get me to ER. Now.”
“I’ll get the car.”
“Babe. Piggyback me.”
“You heard me. Piggyback me.”
“But it’s – it’s far. Like really, really far.”
“Do it, babe.”
“I want to die on your back.”
Heavy breathing. Muffled grunts. Door opens and shuts. Front gate opens and shuts. Footsteps running.
SIX HOURS LATER
“We’re here, babe. Babe? HELP, SOMEBODY, HELP! MY BABE’S COLLAPSED. HELP ME, PLEASE… BABE, WAKE UP….BABE, BABE….DON’T SCARE ME NOW, BABE, BABE…”
Wait a minute! You pulled a fast one there, right? It’s CH who’s collapsed. Is this where the angelic second male lead, the ER Doctor, shows up next? Hmmm…
Don’t tell me the ER doctor is CH’s twin brother. The nice second lead. The one who will never get our Candy.
Also, where’s Veronica!?
I typed Victoria’s name as Veronica again…
Gee. I wonder where she is. Hm.
