Fan: my creys. my feels. hold me.
Translation: The emotional impact of this episode/line/character is almost beyond my capacity to hold in my feelings. I could really use the support of my fellow fans.
Fan: how does your face even work you DICKFACE JUST TAKE MY OVARIES YOU ASSWIPE ugh i will never be able to reproduce
Translation: I find this person to be very attractive and I’m left stunned by his/her seemingly flawless physical appearance.

Translation: I am deeply in awe of this scene/person/pairing. It feels as though I’ve temporarily lost the ability to function.
Fan: omg omG I HATE YOU FUCK YOU UGGGH GO DIE
Translation: I love you. Every fiber of my being burns with a passion hotter than one thousand white-hot suns. I may or may not have a chewed-gum shrine of you in my closet.
I’m not exactly a Kpop fan in the truest sense of the word, but i am a fan of these artists as i love all of their personalities and their work.
I’m pretty old school because i started with them…
And then i discovered them…
And followed them obsessively, mostly because of him…
And now, there’s them…
And them too…
THEM, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE AND ADORE.
Blame it on the project.
Blame it on the crappy scriptwriting.
This pairing held so much promise that even just seeing them make eyes at each other is enough to make my breath hitch at the back of my throat at the thought of how sexy they’d be in the sack together.
Their kisses were winner.
The chemistry amazing.
And yet i can’t for the life of me understand how they fell in love or why they were that deeply in love with each other.
After that cola kiss, Ae Jung just kept on crying.
Ki Joon was always angsty.
And i can stand that if only the reasons were valid or if it was well presented.
Problem was it was not.
It was just shallow and juvenile and so childish that frankly, it got on my nerves to see them being so emo when really, there was really nothing there to cry and to be that deeply pained about.
In the end, it just got annoying.
And then i just stopped caring.
Kang Ji Hwan and Yoon Eun Hye were brilliant!
But their characters?
Not so much.
In the end, no amount of kisses can salvage the trainwreck that this drama had become which also drag along with it this pairing to an abominable demise.
I can only wish and pray that they can redeem themselves in another project.
One where the scriptwriter knows what she’s doing and where they can make me not just spazz over their physical compatibility but also get me invested on the characters that they’re playing.
Just looking at them is enough to make you think of unicorns, rainbows and chocolate fountains.
He’s sooo excitable and transparent and cute like a puppy with boundless energy.
However, theirs is like a relationship meant for puppy love and kindergarten crushes.
Sweet and saccharine and adorable but lacking in substance.
It makes for good butterflies in your stomach, spazz worthy feelings right at that moment but once the excitement dies down, it poses the big question of WHAT NOW and WHERE THEY WILL GO FROM THERE AFTER?
Besides Tae Kyung is stiff competition.
And after him there’s still Shin Woo.
Mi Nyeo and Jeremy?
Good on paper and nice to look at but frankly, they’d never stand a chance.
Male lead and second male lead have a little cousin tiff going on for the longest time which became even more intense when they both fell in love with the same girl, aka the female lead.
Second female lead used to be the apple of the eye of male lead and dumped second male lead in his favor until both boys fell in love with the female lead so she became the cast off shoes that no one wanted.
Because of that, second female lead hated female lead until she learnt of that saying which goes, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em so join second female lead did and female lead and her became as thick as thieves.
Sounds crazy enough?
Well, wait until you hear how male lead and female lead got together and how because of that second female lead realized that second male lead is not that bad at all and so they also get together.
Voila, happily ever after!
It couldn’t have been greater if i scripted it myself, except if male lead and female lead began vomiting sugar candies and second male lead and second female lead started farting rainbows.
And who could blame me?
On paper, Yoon Shi Yoon looked as if he should be wearing a uniform and going to school with Chi Soo on Flower Boy Ramyun shop while Lee Ji Ah looks so sophisticated and elegant that i have rashly predicted that she will look like his aunt. (An elegant, sophisticated aunt but an aunt nonetheless).
However, the moment that they were thrown together onscreen they created magic.
And i sat riveted.
Before i knew it, i was eating up all the words i said.
Their chemistry was so palpable that i don’t even notice the age difference.
I used to think that Lee Ji Ah was just a pretty vase but this vehicle seemed to have been the heavens gift to her after the hell that she went through because of that nasty Jung Woo Sung breakup and Seo Taiji scandal.
Through Me Too Flower, she has proven that indeed she is an actress.
And a good one at that.
And that kiss?
Oh boy, don’t even get me started on that kiss.
It was like Yoon Shi Yoon bitch slapped everyone who judged him as being way too young for this role and i say what a comeback, as he proved to the world that he can also be man of the world and sexy and hot and passionate and cute all at the same time.
Emo-ness has never been this spazzworthy until this two came along bearing all their baggages.
And why the hell not?
What is there not to love?
They’re gorgeous, they look so in love and best of all, they didn’t just create destiny in their drama, they are now effin’ livin’ in it.
There’s just something about this two that seems so real.
Like they’re so deeply in love with each other that it just comes out of their eyes when they gaze at each other and in their smile.
She fuckin’ bakes him a cake for his bday for goodness sake.
And he tweets about it and ends it with a note saying “I LOVE YOU EUGENE”
For a celebrity couple, how normal is that?
Eugene and Ki Tae Young solidified my belief that shipping really pays off.
That there are pairings in dramas that can translate to real life and that when it happens, the ending is just so awesome that the joy you feel for them will be so epic it’s incomparable to none.
Everything that was Da Ren and You Qing in Episode 13.
Because it was perfection.
Because it was the culmination of all those years of longing and agony and pent up frustration that turned out to be more magical than one could ever imagine.
Their scenes together were so real that it gave me such a sense of deja vu,
It could have happened to me at one point, or to a friend or to someone i know.
To be that lost in the throes of finding my other half as You Qing that i basked in that infinite joy of discovery that the love that i was looking for was right in front of my eyes all along.
It was sweet.
It was romantic.
It was just right.
Ariel and Bo Lin portrayed their characters with such realistic ardor it made me spazzy, it made me giddy and it made me wish that i could have seen more.
