Pic of @egads, all dolled up for her cameo as an unstable, wise-cracking rooftop. Ten minutes into the first episode of The Great Show, she gets blown away by a hurricane.

          Yeah, um, ok. I hate doing laundry, but I suppose it’d be quite romantic hanging laundry on a grimy rooftop, with the wind in your hair. Turn, and the hot bartendar CEO grandson is there, perched on top of the dusty washing machine…

Welcome back, @nonski!

Oppa says: “It’s been a long time. I’m sorry you couldn’t catch me in Four Sons, but be sure to catch YY in her ground-breaking cameo as THE FOUR KIDS in SSH’s new drama.”

    Lol! It took me a while to get this. I thought PHJ was really cameo-ing in SSH’s drama 😆

      When nonski was around, we were fangirling over PHJ. We are diehard PHJ fangirls. But that was before I met Hyuk and SSR. Now I’m smitten with SSR.

        I was a PHJ fan too. He might be the first kactor I fangirled. It all started from his guest appearance in family outing. Then he became a fixed member. I downloaded East of Eden for him…lol. but times have changed. I still follow his updates on soompi forums from time to time.

          I fell in love with him in Cheese. But he hasn’t appeared for so long, why?????

          1
          2

            Four Sons was a mess. So many people left until PHJ was the only one main lead left. He even had to pay for the food of the staff at time. Sad right? Then when they keep stalling… he left after the contract and they sued him, well he was favored by the court. He is currently filming Secret, his first ever rom-com. Its filming is about to end around early September to let’s wait for Oppa this last quarter of 2019. Hopefully this will be a good one.

            @yyishere @nonski he has little luck with dramas after man X man. Huhu. 4 men was so messy. Secret seems to be filming smoothly, hopefully it will be picked up by any broadcaster. I didn’t notice Secret is his 1st ever romcom. Isn’t man x man a romcom? Also CITT and MLFAS are both romcoms right?

          He was in this long weekend drama called er…damn, forgot the title, My sister something?? About two siblings, the sister marries a rich man, and pretends that he’s not her brother… I ffwded to all his scenes. I watched the whole drama with only his scenes on youtube. He was in another earlier drama, Three Princesses, but I wasn’t crazy about him then. I only started liking him in Cheese.

            @katakwasabi JKH too!!!!! He’s one of my favourites. I have watched almost of his shows. Watched Sorry, I Love You and fell in love with him. I loved Heartless City, watched it twice for his scenes with the Nam Gyuri – they had so much chemistry together – then cried a bucket of tears for Innocence. Watched Missing 9 for him, and hated it so much. He was wasted in there. Is there any drama that has a proper storyline with him? I tried the cop show, about him travelling back in time, but I didn’t like it. Innocence is one of my all-time favourites. I watched it twice, and each time I cried.

      Hi, katak. I was in the UK, I was in Scotland, then I came back, and went off to Manchester after 3 weeks. That’s why I’ve been MIA. Lost touch with all the dramas, finished Perfume two weeks after it ended, and still haven’t caught up with Mother of Mine. Watched the first episode of A Moment at 18, and loved it…so deep, and so angsty, watched the first episode of Rookie Historian, loved the visuals, but I don’t know, I don’t feel the chemistry…A Moment at 18 has lots of that so delicious, the actor is so amazing…and I started to write a new fanfic, so I’ve been pretty busy, I guess. How did you like Perfume? I found the ending nice, but the show doesn’t leave me breathless, not like TLE. I cried so much at the ending of TLE, and was walking around in a glum daze for days and weeks after.

      1
      1

        Ohhh…you have been so busy~ I only watched Perfume in June-July. When it ended I started to rewatch TLE, I’m at ep 3. Heh

        I like Perfume a lot and I miss waiting for it weekly. It’s not as exciting as TLE, TLE was makjang galore with so many things happening!! Lol. But I did shed some tears for Yi Do. He’s so lonely and sad. I think SSR has mastered the art of crying in this role, he looks so sad every time he cries. And I think he cried so many tears as Yi Do than all his other characters combined lol.

        I’m glad Yi Do found his way to his family along the way. Also I was rooting for Jae Hee to be happy as herself and Jae Hee – Yi Do to happen and it did! The ending was satisfying and beautiful for JH-YD’s journey~ Also might be because I watched it as it aired, so I was anticipating what will happen next and waited each week for a new ep, just like how I watched TLE.

        Anyways..Yi Do is my favourite fantasy romcom male lead character, as much as Hyuk is my favourite kdrama modern Emperor (despite their flaws). Hahahaha

      I am not closely keeping track of the leveling up, but I noticed what seems to be a fast ascent with a newer member. It seems to be from a lot of comments on the fan wall.
      I honestly think it is probably just a range of numbers you fall in to with comments and you level up. With the rooftop it seems to start somewhere in the 4000s.

        But – there are some beanies with far fewer comments. Javinne is on the rooftop with ~2500 comments for example.

    @kethysk @leetennant @ally-le @korfan @wishfultoki @pakalanapikake
    @growingbeautifully @kiara

    It’s Cat Week here at DB. Tagging some of you guys who missed out on some heartwarming stories about stray cats and how they’ve come to mean so much to us. Check @lordcobol and @coffeprince4eva‘s walls for some awesome, personal stories.

    I have a story to share too. We had a stray cat come and push his way into our lives. He’d sit on an old plastic chair in my patio, and lick his paws, miaow when he saw me, and fall asleep. My hubby fed him, together with the rest of the residents on our street. So he was eating good food, my opposite neighbour owned an Indian restaurant, and he would bring back plastic bags of meats every evening for him.

    Bro Cat – that’s what we called him – grew fat and lazy as the years passed. He slept on our patio for 7 years, and he was the King of the Realm. There was this crazy time I walked out of my gate and saw Bro Cat, at the helm, and behind him, three puppies from my other neighbour’s house, and a stray dog which liked to sleep on our street, all march in a line, single file, slowly down the street, at a leisurely pace set by the leader, Bro Cat.

    Bro Cat grew older and tireder as the years passed, and slept a lot, waking up to miaow at us when we came home, or leave the house. One day, he disappeared. My hubby was frantic with worry. He reappeared 3 days later, and promptly settled back to his old routine. But he was eating a whole lot less – he didn’t seem hungry anymore, but he still miaowed at us, and slept as usual. Last year just before the Chinese New Year, he disappeared – and he never came back. We think he died in a ditch somewhere.

    It’s very sad, and my heart hurts as I’m typing this. I don’t think I’ll ever have a pet again, because it hurts so much when it leaves. We had two guinea pigs, Porky and Pigo, who were with us for two years, and they died, too, one after the other. My kids were inconsolable, and I cried for days after. I’m still hurting. Seeing their pics on my phone hurt me a lot, so I deleted all of them. Losing a pet is heartbreaking, and you won’t know how much it hurts until you keep one.

      Thank you, I’ve been reading the cat stories. Errand Boys are the best ❀️

      Your story is heartbreaking and similar to mine – one day our cat disappeared and was found dead in the park. I’ve had several pets and they all died on me (cat, dog, rescued bird, chicken, sheep), so I decided to never let myself get attached to a pet animal again.

      Dear yyishere YY,
      Thanks for tagging me. I’ve been enjoying the cat and pet stories immensely.

      I’m sorry to hear about Porky and Pigo. I have outlived three feline nephews and a number of companion animals, including my 4-H rabbit, Hans, who lived about 7 years. The most recent died just over a month ago, and I’m feeling kind of raw. After nearly 22 years, his absence feels weird.

      One of the challenges of being the human of a companion animal is the disparity in lifespans, especially in the case of small rodents. Their lives are so much shorter than ours that it doesn’t seem fair. And it hurts like hell when we have to witness their passing.

      I wish I could recall the name of the veterinarian who used to write an animal health column for Prevention magazine in the ’70s and ’80s when it was still published by Rodale. Between about 1979-1983, he wrote a very thoughtful article on bereavement, and the service that our pets and animal companions render as they share their lives with us. They give us a ringside seat on the circle of life and a lesson in impermanence that can help us come to grips with our own mortality and that of our human loved ones — a dress rehearsal, if you will. I don’t know if that is any consolation to you, but it hit me where I live, and I still recall the gist of it.

      It’s okay to feel sad at this time. It may be that the depth of our grief is directly proportional to the joy and companionship we experience with the creatures who so intimately share our lives. I just hope that you and your family can recall the good times you shared with your pets. It is an important part of the grieving process, and will help you cultivate gratitude for the blessings they were in your lives. It might even be therapeutic to write down your favorite stories about your pets, and actively reminisce about them and the lessons they taught you. When you feel up to it, recall the good and happy times with the pets with your children — which is what people do at wakes and repasts after funerals for their human friends and relatives. Draw their portraits, too. Consider putting together a family memory book for Porky and Pigo when you all feel up to it.

      I hope that you can take a lesson from Kdrama and allow yourself to suspend your disbelief enough to eventually entertain the possibility that you might one day again enjoy the companionship of a pet. It may feel impossible right now, but that doesn’t mean that you will always feel that way. A friend is a gift you give yourself, and that applies to the ones with fur, feathers, and scales, too.

      I’ll leave you with a piece of music that comforts me at times like this. Even though it deals with human relationships and how we change over time, its message to cherish the good memories certainly applies to pets, too.

      Take care of yourself, YY. πŸ˜‰

      ROFLMAO at “serial killer of roaches.”

      One of my feline nephews, a pixilated ankle-biter of a Maine Coon Cat named Fergus aka Furball, was the scourge of mousies. But since he didn’t learn how to hunt from his mom, he dispatched them by playing with them to death.
