walk with me...



"Outside of my friends, no one really knew me, what kind of person I am..
But I think wife now knows."
-khj
 
I pride myself on not being easily impressed with love stories.....
Especially the ones that everyone enjoys swooning over.
Honestly, I spend a lot of time poking fun of them and actually feeling superior about it.
I often find them mediocre and far too cheesy.  So...away from them I try to stay.
I normally would never watch something like WGM.
But somehow I was roped into watching an episode of it...
By the time I was done with just two episodes, I was invested in their story.
Their strange chemistry...their extremely awkward friendship...all of it made me smile.
There were so many moments that left impressions in my mind
but there is one episode I always catch myself going back to.....The Farewell Episode.
Maybe it's the background music, maybe it's the stuff being said, maybe it's just them...
but this episode resonates as one of the sweetest things I've ever watched or heard.
I believe it's the honesty and the sincerity that makes this episode so heart warming.
I wasn't sad that they were "breaking up" but rather because the end of the show meant
that they were parting with a friend that understood their heart.

I know my favorite line from this episode...which lines made you tear up??

Hello Meme! Love these kinds of posts!. This episode I cried my brains out on this episode. I love them to pieces. Been a fan of theirs for years now, I'm still a big fan. I think every line made me cry! I'm going to rewatch now!

Thanks everyone for keeping this site up and runnning.

aww meme, I could relate with what you've said. Most of it. For some reason, I didn't cry after watching the last episode, but it was heart-pinching enough that the morning after watching it, the song "Don't say you love me" by the corrs, kept playing in my head. I immediately tried to raise my defenses & thought of it as old stuff, ended in 2008 (since I've only discovered them last year).

I think the farewell ep was also my most watched ep (well, at least after my first round of WGM). The part when HB pulled her hand away from HJ was one of the truest moments... made me conclude that there was really "something." The guy who wouldn't let go of the lady's hand & the lady who wanted to pull her hand away (before she gets too fond),plus the guy who suddenly tried to make that moment light by saying something funny (when it was an obvious escape out of that awkward situation).

On the other hand, I also felt HJ's air of confidence...that their story didn't end there, that he's now on to bigger things to fulfill his family gahun... while he was talking to the "future husband," made me wonder if he was talking to himself. haha. Call me wild fancy, but who knows. haha. & why not? ;)

My favorite line, TO THE WORLD! :))) (just because that was easy to remember. haha)

I don't believe that their story has ended. It still continues--in REAL life, without cameras focused on them.

I just kept on thinking that they are just both busy with 'events' most specially KHJ--because he even said that the future husband should earn a lot for HB right?

I can't understand why there are haters. I dare them to watch the whole WGM and say afterwards what they still don't believe in these two.

My husband watched WGM with me (even if he's not into Korean shows)--but after watching, he says that KHJ has really fallen for HB. He felt it too.

This whole episode made me cry, and to this day, after watching it so many times, I still tear up because their emotions really do seem genuine and sincere. That's what I love most about this couple too, along with so many other wonderful traits, they together and they as individuals, are rare.

The most heartwrenching part, for me, would be HB's reactions (her face and her tears) to HJ's words. I literally could feel her pain, it felt as if she knew she loved him but at the same time, had already made the decision to let him go.

With time I could have been content with their parting, but after all these "coincidences" (way too many), I believe that they have been and are together. HBHJ always! :)

I've never cried in any of the episodes. As I try recalling my favourite line, the scenes just swim around in my head like a whirlpool. I just love everything about them, whether they are bigger events like singing falling slowly at the farm or small actions like looking at each other in the eye and giving a knowing smile..

There is just an undeniable chemistry about this couple that make me hopelessly addicted/ attracted.

Till date, I still believe~ Segyero!!

Watchin this epi made me feel like watching their promises to each other.... a recorded clip for them to reminisce...

Why???

Their messages to their future spouse.....

HJ: Before.... *pointing to himself.. (meaning when their ceremony is done is it "After"???)

HB: We'll meet again in London 2012.... (meaning it's not the end yet right???)

above is what my brainwave wants to pick up and understand as.... hahaha...

Side track a little....
Hallasan.... Maybe i've watch too much Kdrama.... the place they decide to do their farewell.... is what i believe as a place where you want to visit with someone dear to you.... and make promises to each other....

Which is also the reason why i strongly believe they made their promises to each other as "future spouse"....

I guess i'll wait patiently till both marries... have kids.... live happily ever after....

To the World....

Hi everyone. Neither I am new to Joongbo nor new to your blog. Am only a regular lurker waiting for news, spazzes about our couple. I watched through browsing on youtube. I started liking the Anbi couple at first and when Joongbo appeared on the show, I was always anticipating their appearance. For some reason, I was hooked. I also believe that there was something precious between them. They have shown broad understanding of each other, considering they only filmed once a week for eight(?) months. If they did not have a mutual understanding about their feelings in WGM, or did not pursue a relationship on or after the show. I, and I think all of you will agree that 'it will be a waste' to leave such a wondrous friendship. Hence, for that reason I am certain that they are together. If not in present in future (they will realise it). How could either let go of the other? Do I sound crazy my fellow joongboers? Do I also believe lala land? Sorry for the long post. Hope I am welcome here. Two lines that made me really laugh from our couple: 'freckled ajumma' and 'i'll be in my pants when they come' (these dialogues were just out of this world). To the world!

Looking back to those particular moments made me realise that Mt Halla is like a sacred place to them both since they have agreed that they should not brought their future spouse there or maybe to Jeju itself. All this while maybe Mt Halla has been their secret meeting place..since it takes hours to go up and to go down, no one could have thought or followed them right? Hahaha...spreading some JOONGBO wild fancy!!

I agree with all of you. I am just the other fan not participating much in the blogs, just waiting patiently for updates on both of them, pics and all. I felt bad when I heard that HJ confessed to Lee Min Jung...hope HB did not hurt at all...love hwangbo, she is really a nice person inside and out and I really, really want her to be happy...

kiani said...

aawww...meme=P, why the tear jerker?
Gosh it doesn't matter how many times I watch this episode, I cry like a baby every time.
There's a favorite part for me in every episode, but still trying to find which I really, really love.
Thanks meme=p, you are the awesomest,
luv ya..

Ahhhhh..... Missing Ssangchu Heaven so much!!!

Been MIA for long time.... Although not posting, I do pay attention to Ssangchu's activities!!

With the recent Twit from Hwangbo, she seems she's ready to marry to a lovely husband and have a boy who she could teach him TaeKwonDo.

On the other hand, Hyun Joong stated in the recent radio show that he doesn't care if his wife love idols. But when asked if his wife put up a signed idol poster in their bedroom, what would he do? He confindently stated that he will tear it down immediately. That..... made me think of the "Future Husband" Tom Cruise Poster in HwangBo's bedroom....I wonder what would the fate of that poster be!!

2012 is coming everyone..... To The World!

Miss you all, especially MeMe, Tommy and SH.

Hey all! Am bit of a crybaby so first time I saw the farewell episode, I cried. Gave myself a headache because I was trying hard not to cry...

I always walk away from watching them in WGM feeling satisfied even if it's the last episode. I feel strangely content with my life and feel as if everything is right in the world, somehow. When I started out with obsessing with JoongBo I always felt sad (and irritated) when I find out that there were haters who did this and said that, now I could care less. Like my sister always said, 'haters could go to you-know-where'.

I could care less about people who hate. I get it. That we can't convince everybody about what we feel. What I do know is that this couple made me happy when I watched them and that seemingly after being so darn awkward with each other, learned to rely on one another and trust each other enough to show on screen.


Aah~ being here feels great. Meme, your post is wonderful. Made my day. ♥
