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.

Ahhh. Dammit meme!! You are making me miss them soo much! You're only back two days and you made me a little teary on both accounts.

"this episode was the defining moment in their friendship." TOTALLY!

Meme - I've been wishing the same thing, that their story was a drama with an ending so I will not keep on coming back wondering how will they end up. I will love it to have a happy ending but even it's not my heart can rest.

I want to see them together but if not I'm hoping that at least they keep their friendship.

100% agree. thanks for posting these few days. it's slow lately that no news for both of them

Ackkk!!!MEME!!!! those two recent posts--- hit it bull's eye!were you practicing archery? lol.

welcome back! This shillang and buin "show" seemed more poignant than any other drama I've watched so far...there was just too much emotional torture that's making me crave for a redeeming, happy ending!

Btw, wasn't this episode the "controversial" ep. pointed out on one of the "controversial" posts we had here weeks or months ago? you know, the one with the link that gave birth to "WFP." hehe where there were supposedly too much editing, twists of responses like the other one made the interview earler or something like that blah blah.. whatever.. but even if I tried to scrutinize these scenes - turned them upside down, inside out, twist and turn -- dang it, I ended up at the same point. Thrirs could be just a brief quite intimate encounter.. but dang it ssangchu, that was tough. I still wish and hope you'd be given a fairer chance...

I hope they're friends...well, I think they're friends, they just couldn't openly express it due to some circumstances... but I dunno, maybe it was the "dangerous" type of friendship-- difficult to maintain because they were at the brink of falling (hard) for each other... and they were both at different phases in their life. Indeed - a dilemma. a torture. just too precious to risk, too difficult to let go.

Maybe the friendship had too much potential of putting it up to the highest level...that they'd decided to just keep things steady... (?)

eeek,have I eaten too much cheese?

fudgeorange said...

ssory for the typo errors.
erratum: "earlier" not "earler" "theirs" not "thrirs."

**wish and hope "they'd" be given a fairer chance...

thanks again meme. :)

bec215 said...

@anonymous-I heard that is just a rumor. Did you see the farewell episode? Look how hard she cried, if she rejected him i don't think she would have cried that hard.

Speechless for any words...

I'm sure they are together for X-mas & for a new year. They have the same telepathy each other from the begining. Did you see HB's twitter picture yesterday. There was man's hands to give her presents while he gave a backhugging. I'm believing them consistantly. Thanks Meme=p Justin

ICE said...

@bec215, I'm sure HB rejected HJ for some special reasons; but don't u think it really hurts to have to say something to the future wife of whom u love deeply. For me I could'nt take it. U know the last episode was really very stressful for me.

still have faith for our ssangchu couple...

MeMe,
I am so love your words,
"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."

Exactly how I feel!! I can't forget how they made me feel the True Love should be!!
Caring for each other,
Respecting each other,
Laughing Together......

How could I give up on them??!!

kdj said...

*phew*

Tommy-san~ could you please give a big hug to your lovely wife for me? Meme dear thank you thank you thank you for voicing this out~~ ^___^

Strange, I've been thinking to spazz on the same thing on soompi last night, but I've just sleep on with the idea *engrossed with too much spazziness exhausted to sleep* LoL

First time watching this scene, I seriously ROLLED EYES > STOP BREATHING > & SQUEAKED~!!

Wow. These moments really give me major goose bumps. I don't think I'll ever forget those lines of his. And I'll never take that as sweet words merely for good rating on TV..Heck that was real. He is known for being shy. But he voiced out those statement confidently. And from various interviews, inside/out WGM, we also learn how honest he is when it comes to heart-matters *grin*

One thing I've been thinking seriously. Why do we easily fall in love with these two in the first place & why do we still have too much hope in this make-believe couple on tv?

I don't know you but personally for me, whenever I met couples (dating, engaged or married), even if I barely knew the couple (even for stranger couple I met/saw for the first time), when both have genuine feeling towards each other, me the outsider will naturally have soft spot in me for them. Instinctively, I'll even smile unknowingly, feeling contented. That happened many times, seriously. I'm simply happy just seeing other people in love being happy.
I am normal, right? ^^

That's why, I believe, what we see from what they showed us is REAL.
That's why, it doesn't matter if our love being JBer started two years ago or just recently for those who watch the series much later, the colorful journey between the two will still paint the life of those who witnessed them.
No matter how the real ending will be, for now, we all already have that soft spot inside us that we felt for genuine couple in love (well, maybe only me. haha) ^^
That's why, now even after two years, we still choose to believe ^^

[p/s: Ssorry..I tend to comment way too much..couldn't help. Your post(s) were such an inspiration ^^ I fear mine will be slept on again anyway^^ Thanks again Meme, Sure I'll have another great day today! ^^]

@kdj. I totally agree w/ you. Before I did not watch any dramas or variety shows; however, I accidently found WGM. Then, Boombbb!!! I cannot get out of HB & HJ's love. I became a fan of them since then. I've never involved in fan things at all previously because that is just wasting my time; however, HB & HJ have changed my life. Nowadays, I have to have some new news about them. This is a crazy thing, but I cannot help to myself. Justin.

They really are a matchmade in heaven. Just one more year joongboers! Segyero!

Your blog is my most precious gift from heaven.

I don't what on earth made me watch the re-run of this "make believe marriage show" lastmonth(it was re-run in Thailand). And I watched it really late after you guys watched it on original air time. But I fell HARD for them. I didn't know anything about them cause I'm not into K-Pop ent at all. So my feeling for them are so genuine, non-biased. That's why I'm qualified to say that THEY ARE ONE OF THE GREATEST LOVERS OF ALL TIME IN HISTORY OF MOVIES/NOVELS/REAL LIVES. Their words spoken were so heartwarming, heartwrenching and heartbeating without scripts. I think their real story is the best love story written by GOD.

I can't imagine how loyal and faithful you guys to our beloved couple. I just join the congregation of joongbo heaven this Dec. and my heart has gone to the rollercoaster ride of the "what's next" about them. Joy, pain, disappoinment, hope, heartbreak, daydream, bad dream, denial, faith, doubt sorrow, bliss, all emotional turmoil and roolercoaster until I need to check my heartrate and blood pressure! Only for this couple!

I love them and I love you, Ssangchu Heaven. Happy Chinese New Year in advance.
