A fanfic for the New Year


Back by popular demand, J.J's fanfic for the week.  J.J has been sending me her work but my email was not functioning properly.  Sorry for the delay!!

"Nothin' On You"

She had been waiting for the blasted announcement for six hours. Six hours waiting for this connecting flight; sitting, waiting, fidgeting, but never sleeping. She was in a sleepless stupor when she realized that her eyes had affixed themselves on a person's collar bone. How or when they had appeared in front of her, she did not know.
She ventured to look up at the face of this person. To her surprise she was met with bright eyes staring, peculiarly, back at her. She flushed in panic and tried in vain to hide her embarrassment.
"I'm sorry," she mumbled. "I didn't realize I was staring."
 To his credit, he shook his head, snapping out of his own reverie. "Um...I'm sorry?"

 He had a lilt in his speech, which she attributed to English not being his first language. He was clearly Asian, but from where she did not guess. Nevertheless, she now had his attention.
Clearing her throat, she answered. "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to stare. I'm lacking sleep."
He nodded and she realized how puffy his eyes were. He looked more tired than her, she assumed.
"I think I was mindlessly staring as well," he smiled back genuinely.
 She was floored; her breath hitched and her heart began to race. While he had looks, he was not as aesthetically beautiful as when he smiled. It was dazzling and pure. Whatever brand of beauty he had, she would gladly subscribe to.
His smile suddenly disappeared, leaving her bereft, not that she'd ever tell him that. Two people appeared, flanking him. One took a seat beside him and another stood, holding out a pad of paper and a pen. They spoke in their language and then he took the pad and proceeded to scrawl something on it. A lady appeared, completely red and shaking. He smiled at her and handed back the pad. She noticed that his smile was not as warm...

 She put two and two together and realized he was a celebrity of sorts. She ventured to look around and a cluster of people littered their general vicinity. Some with cellphones held in front of them, evidently recording his every move. She flushed again and gathered her effects. His eyes locked with hers as she stood up. He captivated her.
Unsure of what to do she smiled bashfully, "I must be bothering you, then."
"Why?" His brows furrowed quizzically. "I was the one who sat in front of the pretty statue lady."
She smiled and decided to forgo all other notions. She extended her hands, and an audible gasp was heard all around. But as he took her hand, neither became aware of their surroundings.

 "I'm Estella."

 "I'm Raphael."

yes, you are.

Remember the Angel Project? 
Hwangbo tweeted this @vanisia!!
Let's give it up to Vanisia for all her hardwork
and to everyone else who took the time out to participate.
I'm sure it was not an easy task to coordinate such a project.
It's great to know that anything is possible.

*thanks lvk for the heads up again =p

do you?


I felt like this episode was the defining moment in their friendship.  Yes, they had fun and lots of laughter before this but this was when they both officially took a chance on each other.  Without knowing what KHJ’s response was, Hwangbo took a giant step forward and said I love you so that they could remain on the show.   KHJ, because they’re alike, knew her well enough to know her exact response.  He too responded in kind.  We know how hard it was for both of them to say these words but they did it for each other.  Sometimes you put walls up not to keep people out but to see who cares enough to break them down.  I think they effectively broke each others walls =p

I love this couple, I do.  I know it’s a variety show that ended about two years ago but I can’t bring myself to stop supporting them.  Sometimes I wish that their story were just a 16-episode drama with an ENDING.  I mean, if it were a drama, I can wrap it up and move on to the next one.  Instead here I am, hoping and praying that they’re together or at least building a stronger friendship.  

Their easy banter, their quiet conversations, the way they laughed, the way they played, they made it so easy for us to fall for them.  I’ve learned that people will forget what you’ve said, they may even forget what you’ve done, but they rarely forget how you made them feel.  Perhaps that’s why I can’t give up on them.

falling slowly...


Hi guys, I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday!!  I know it's been awhile since the last post, for that I'm sorry. Hopefully, I can make-up for the lost time.  It seems like things are a bit quiet with our Joongbo couple lately.  It's like they're keeping a low profile during the holidays.  However, the chatbox seems to be full of chatter despite the lack of news.  Thank you to all the regulars who kept the rest of the readers updated while we were away.

Since there is no pressing news to report, I figured we could walk down memory lane a bit.  Falling Slowly (Kris Allen's version) was playing on the radio earlier and of course it took me back to episode 18.  To be honest, I have never felt the need to rewatch KHJ serenade Hwangbo with his singing.  I know that particular scene is a favorite for many but I wasn't a fan of it until recently.  I was always more impressed with the little things he did for her, like when he offered to help make couple shirts during the first farewell episode.  I mean, he hates wearing couple shirts much less making them.  Singing and folding cranes, I thought it was kinda generic and a bit cheesy compared to that.  

However, Tommy being Tommy, had to point out a couple of things to me.  We were choosing our first dance song when he finally said that it was going to be a surprise.  Which made me roll my eyes and say, "are you going to bust out with a guitar and sing me "falling slowly" too, how original!!!"  Knowing how I was not a fan of that particular scene, he rolled his eyes back and said, "why yes, only I'm going to play the piano, the violin and the guitar while folding the cranes and singing the song."  Then he told me to stop ragging on the scene.  Yes, it was cheesy. Yes, it was unoriginal but I was looking at it all wrong.  Because it was cheesy and unoriginal, it made it much more genuine.  "Your boy hates cheesiness, yet there he is on reality t.v. singing a song in a language he can barely speak.  I mean, the guy said he was more nervous doing that then his first concert.  I mean he ran the risk of making an ass out of himself on t.v.  I would've bailed. Plus, the words to both songs are quite fitting to their situation, it may be cheesy but it had thought yo.  Why do you think Hwangbo was so close to tears?"

That shut me up for a good minute.  Then of course, I had to go back to re-watch that episode.  I have to admit, it wasn't nearly as cheesy as I remembered.  As a matter of fact, it was actually kinda, sorta, a little bit sweet.  For those that need their memories refreshed...

Merry Christmas!!


To all...Merry Christmas and may this season fill your heart with
love, laughter and happiness!

*Thanks again LVK for rocking the boat and bringing the Christmas cheer!!  I must apologize for the lack of posting.  I'm not back yet and can't do much researching...but I hope you guys are still supporting our Joongbo couple.  There is a link section at top that will take you to some great Joongbo related sites!!!  

*J.J has some great fan fics to share but I seem to be have trouble getting her emails.  J.J do you have a site I can send our avid fans to?

I see stars....

Do you see what I see? 

Thanks LVK for giving me the heads up,
it saved me from searching the portals for spazzes.

Also, LVK was so inspired from this particular spazz...
Voila...another masterpiece!!

we won't.


“Don’t lose me.” Those words bring a wealth of meaning with them.  I believe that regardless of the situation, they both remember those words well.  After all, KHJ doesn’t say things carelessly and we all know Hwangbo values friendship greatly.   If we haven’t forgotten them, how could they possibly lose each other?  

It’s amazing how another year has come and gone.  Has it really been two years since we’ve last seen Joongbo together?  It’s been awhile but the flames are still going, huh?  We definitely have yet to lose them.

With Christmas right around the corner, whether they spend this "winter" together or not, I do wish that "their love is happy."  I hope all is well with everyone.  I know there is a lot of juicy news that I've missed out on but hopefully I can catch up and be updated =p  Thanks for being kind and patient with me.  The good news is SH should be back soon!!  Yay!!! I know I'm not the only one that misses her sunny disposition!!

J.J's Fanfic for the day!!!

Back by popular demand a second installment of J.J's fanfic....

Long ago, she had gotten mad at him because he never showed he cared. He was like any other guy, sort of hapless unless told what to do. Sure, he was able to be romantic, and no, he wasn’t completely dense, but it takes him time. Sadly, she was a bit impatient.
So on her birthday he decided that he was going to treat her to a spa. He didn’t want to take her to one, he wanted to be the one to give her the massage, and whatever else a spa was. He figured all he had to do was set the Jacuzzi feature on their tub, light some candles, make the bubbles extra foamy and maybe add some flower petals for good measure…and with some luck he’d be able to join.
However, no such luck. When she came home she dropped her bag on the floor, something she does when upset—she was fastidious. The pets ran to her, but she stomped through the living room, completely ignoring him. She slammed the door to their bedroom.
He panicked now, she never slammed doors.
“You, alright?” He knocked from his side. He heard a string of profanities as the shower turned on.
Barging into their bedroom and opened the door to the master bath, she had completely missed the flowers, candles, and bubbles. She was crying in the shower, though.
“Uh, Buin?”
She didn’t respond, but she sunk down hugging her knees as the shower beat on her—fully clothed. Her makeup was runny and her hair a matted mess. But she still looked lovely, and his heart ached. He grabbed a bottle of shampoo and wordlessly lathered, rinsed, and then conditioned her hair. He washed away her makeup and embraced her sopping wet body to his.
They stayed in the shower until the hot water ran out, and a smile was back on her face.

Hwangbo on Strong Heart


This episode of Hwangbo on Strong Heart has been a hot topic the last few hours, some fans are a little sad, some in disbelief, and some hopeful.  Don't be discouraged, I think this is a good sign.  They've said before that there was no contact yet it turns out that he has in fact contacted Hwangbo to wish her a Happy Birthday!!  Regardless, whether it was last year or the year before, even with his busy schedule he REMEMBERED her birthday.  That confirms to me that she is pretty important to him =p  Hey, you never know, in a couple of months we might find out that they may have accidently ran into each other somewhere *wink* wink*

*Thank you Choufy for teaching me how to post a video!!! Yay, it only took me forever =p

Preview: Hwangbo On Love Pursuer


Will this answer who her secret admirer is?
I really have a strong feeling it's Kim Dong Wan...

[Love Pursuer is hosted by Suju members Yesung and Leeteuk. Basically it is a show wherein a celebrity will choose another celebrity he or she likes and pursue him or her for a week. Then in this case, Hwangbo, the pursued celebrity, will try to guess who her pursuer is at the end of the show.]

Kim Hyun Joong does not keep in contact with Hwang Bo


Hwang Bo expressed her affections for her former virtual husband Kim Hyun Joong during her appearance on SBS’s “Strong Heart.”

f(x)’s Victoria was on the same show and had talked a bit about her own feelings for her virtual husband, Nichkhun. The attention was then shifted over to Hwang Bo, who is a senior of the “We Got Married” show. MC Kang Ho Dong asked her, “Do you still keep in contact with Kim Hyun Joong?”

Hwang Bo answered, “No, we don’t. He contacted me just once, to wish me a happy birthday. I think he only did it because I’m the adult in the relationship,” causing the studio to burst out in laughter.

Hwang Bo and Kim Hyun Joong, affectionately nicknamed the ‘ssangchu/lettuce couple’ by their fans, had their own segment on “We Got Married” in 2008 and were widely loved by viewers. - Allkpop

Honestly, I think I stopped breathing for a whole minute when she said this. From what I remember she did say before that they have not kept in contact with each other after the show.. But still.. WHY? What's so weird about remaining friends? It still puzzles me. It's one of those things that makes you wonder, what is really up with Hyunjoong and Hwangbo? Do they really like each other that staying in contact may cause them to have troubles with their managements? Or, did they not like each other this whole time? But.. Looking at the tearful message from Hwangbo, and the sincere and surprising revelations from Hyunjoong... It's just.. strange how they will not keep in contact when they affected each other by so much... It's so strange. -Min

nobody but you....

I want nobody, nobody but you...
I want nobody, nobody but you...

I guess they want nobody but each other =p

Yes, I am watching them again.
 Yes, I do that often.
I needed a break ok.
Please don't judge me =p

four seasons...


Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter
all four season, they had it all.
They learned how to open up to each other 
and yet somehow we took the fall.
It's been two years...
and yet here we are supporting them still.
Maybe it's their stories or the lessons we learn from them,
regardless, I hope they have a Merry Christmas,
hopefully all their endeavors continue to be successful.

I'm getting married this weekend so I won't be able to
join you guys in all the spazztastic news...
but I'll catch up!
Until then, have a fun holiday =p

*M.I.N's going to take good care of you until SH comes back
and look out for LVK's fabulous work...she's back to spread some holiday cheer!!

Waiting for Kim HyunJoong for 10 Hours, Fans Fainted

Kim Hyun Joong became his boss Bae Yong Joon's successor to be TheFaceshop endorser. He was in Malaysia for 2 days to promote TheFaceshop products. He went to Pavilion for fan meeting and autographed for the 1st 210 fans who purchased TheFaceshop products. In addition, 10 lucky fans also have a chance to take photos with him. He was there for 40mins but wasn't able to sign for all the 210 fans. As he was regretful about this, he promised to come to Malaysia again when he hosts concerts in the short future.

There were about 5000 fans who gathered at Pavilion just to see Flower boy Kim Hyun Joong. Some fans even came around 7 am to find a perfect spot. After waiting for nearly 10 hours, they finally got to see him at 5pm. However, because the place was stuffy, some fans had breathing difficulties and fainted. Seeing that the place was overcrowded with fans, Kim Hyun Joong caringly told the screaming fans to remained calm, not to squeeze nor push as safety comes 1st. Thankfully, the fans listened to the idol, and this allowed the successful progression of the fanmeet.

Korea arranged numerous guards to follow KHJ

The Korean side arranged quite a number of guards to protect Kim Hyun Joong on his trip to Malaysia. During the presscon, one of the guards was rather flustered and even used his body to blocked the photographer who was taking photos resulting in a rather unhappy body contact incident. During the fanmeet, one of the fan made used of the autograph session and went and hugged Kim Hyun Joong. Of course the guards immediately went and stopped her, but it was too late. Anyway, so the fan was really excited and happy, walking off with a smile. She because the luckiest person whom the rest envied.

what do you think?


She’s caring for me with each detail, I thought.  I’m really thankful.  -Kim Hyun Joong
There are moments in life when you know things are definite, like your first love, your first heartbreak, or when someone’s changed you for the better.   Every time I re-watch WGM, I sit there and try to figure out the exact moment they truly started caring for each other.  Was it after the photo shoot?  Or was it during the first farewell episode?  Maybe their friendship blossomed on the farming trip, perhaps?  And then when I’ve totally annoyed the crap out of Tommy, he tells me the same thing (though worded differently) each time, “there doesn't always have to be a defining moment, sometimes it just happens, you won’t find it on any one episode, it’s their combined time together.”  His reply always appeases me, yet I still catch myself wondering from time to time, “hmmm?  When did things start to change for them?”

Fan-fic of the day.

SH wanted to make sure the readers of Ssangchu Heaven didn't get neglected while she was away so she prepared for another guest blogger to help out periodically, just in case M.I.N and I don't do our jobs =p  This site doesn't normally post up fan fics but J.J can be very convincing with her stories...with out further ado, I'll let her make the introductions....
Dearest Ssangcho friends, I am happy to share these Joongbo inspired fanfictions with you. I'm sorry it's not Joongbo fanfiction proper, but I hope these tickle your fancy! I'll be lurking here and there and if anyone has any "prompts" they gather from WGM I'd be glad to challenge it.  Please enjoy the writing. It's not edited, and no it will not have their names, though I may change my mind on this one depending on the prompt.  Always, J.J."
She wants to hit him—hard. Her head aches as she clutches her cell phone in a fist. She's away on an overseas business trip and had been calling him. She understands that the time difference made their communication tricky, but they usually dealt with that after the the first day apart. However, it's completely unlike him to not answer his phone for this long. Before she left she hadn’t even seen him because he refused to let her in the house. He was sick and he was sparing her. That was a week ago, one week away from him, and the dog.
She was never like this, she rarely depended on people, but he has a way of wheedling in and staying. No amount of feminist pep-talk could make her “un”-miss him. She sighs and plops on the couch, nursing her aching head. The pillows are firm enough to beat without threat of feathers exploding everywhere.
It's such a shame that she's staying in such a grand villa and was alone. She should have taken the dog. She should have just opened the door—she already knew his pass code anyway. 

The door opens and she doesn't bother looking up—it's probably her manager.
“YAH! Is this how you greet me?”
She sits up from her lounging position to see him, slightly flushed, and a little worse for wear. The dog barks madly in his cage. Tears star to well, and she swears he’s tearing up too.
“I’m not tearing up, I’m tired,” he says before she could say anything.
He runs to her on the couch, and though he knocks the wind out of her, she’s glad. He smells of sweat and laundry softener as they fumble 
with the backpack he has on and snuggle together.

The dog is left in the cage momentarily.

joongbo love....


Yes, maybe that’s why I did the mission.  Even for a small moment if he can laugh, well, he’s made me laugh all this time but I don’t think I was able to make him laugh that much, so I really liked the fact that I was able to make him laugh. - Hwangbo
Like I've said before, I've always believed that actions speaks louder then words and when you care enough for a person, there's not much you wouldn't do for their happiness.  Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things, like perhaps looking foolish just to make someone smile.  

This weekend's flur of activities made me miss them, them....them, Joongbo them, together them.  His smiles and reactions after each Joongbo mission this past weekend was encouraging.  Elizabeth Foley once said, "The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart."  If this holds true, then I am comforted that whatever the reasons for the silence or the secrecy, their friendship still remains.
