They’re just strange in many ways. Strangely met for the first time in the most unusual way. Strangely tangled with great chemistry in no time. Strangely against the general perspective about woman-man’s height difference, but still look so good together. And I’m strangely so drawn to them!
Honestly when I saw their screen time together, I always have automatic thought like; Ah, if only Seo Jang Hoon was a little taller. But at the same time, I want to keep watching them because they’re just so cute together.
I like their cute bickering, their conversation that hinted some deep meaning, their interaction that full of chemistry… I like almost everything about them. Ah, I wish their screen time together can be a little longer, and longer, and longer hahaha.
Seo Jang Hoon’s confidence really amazed me. He was aware about the height difference (of course), but it didn’t discouraged him. Or he just didn’t show it? I don’t know, but I think his personality really matched with Jo Eun’s. He is witty and manly at the same time, while Jo Eun easily flustered despite of how she seems. That makes their interaction become really interesting.
This is really the first time I watch that kind of pair (and being so drawn to them!) in Kdramaland. So this is a whole new experience for me, but it’s really interesting and got me excited. I still have the general perspective in mind that man should be taller than woman, but then I think maybe the idea of Seo Jang Hoon and Jo Eun being couple is (really) okay xD
Aside from them together, I’m drawn to Jo Eun character much more than I expected. Well, actually I really didn’t have any expectations about the season 2 in general. Because there were many cases when the sequel didn’t follow the success of its predecessor. But Age of Youth 2 really against all odds, and it did well. And so far, I like the season 2 more hahaha.
Okay, back to Jo Eun. Her character already caught my eyes from the first time she appeared. Indeed, the tomboy-ignorant-cool type always draw viewer’s attention. And things got more interesting when it turned out that she’s not really that type.
I first raised my eyebrows when Jo Eun likes the doll gift from her friend, saying it’s cute. I was like; wait, isn’t she a tomboy and boyish?
And I almost freaked out when she fangirling over idols. I keep asking in disbelief; what, what is she?!
Wah. This is really the real example that general perspectives and judgement are scary. Applause for the drama, respect!
From the fangirling moment, I paid more attention to Jo Eun character. Maybe as fellow fangirl (?), I’m drawn to her easily and empathize with her. And as the drama going on, it turned out that Jo Eun really not the type that we thought at first. She is more like the sensitive, caring, and cute type; although it seems that she didn’t aware about it.
Beside Jo Eun, my favourite is still Song Ji Won all the time! Song Ji Won never failed to amazed me with whatever she did, talked, and wear hahaha. Everything about her is just so extraordinary, extreme; and I like it :)
Not to forget her chemistry with Im Sung Min. I shipped them so much since the first season, and regretted that they didn’t end up together. I see the hope in this season 2… but I don’t know. They just seem worrying hahaha. Maybe we need about 5 seasons for Song Ji Won and Im Sung Min become together? Hahaha let’s just hope it won’t.
And after all this long writing, my biggest protest is why the subtitle took really looong? It was really a challenge for me to get into this cycle : wait for the subs, then watch without subs (because I’m not patient LOL), then wait for the subs again, then re-watch with subs (because everything never be the same with the subs hahaha). Really a long routine, right? :D
Anyway, I’m really looking forward to my favourite pair(s), and the drama in general. Wish this season will wrap up the stories well without leaving some unanswered questions behind!
So, I just translated the lyrics for the BTS’s new album teaser (you could read it here.) and I couldn’t put my ears off ( or hand, or eyes, or everything! *sighs* ) for ther third track which entitled Whalien 52.
It’s about a lonely whale who couldn’t mate nor communicate with any whale due to her different frequency of voice.
She always amaze me since I heard about her from 2004 and never stop following every update about research on her. Heck, I even got my room plastered with posters of whale.
But then, when I heard the song, I just got teared up.
Not only they made a song, entitled and dedicated to her, but also they (as in Rap Monster for now) rap their lines as if they’re the whale herself, looking from her point of view and not the others.
I literally just cried all night, just wanting to thank BTS and the producer PDogg for making people open their eyes about this whale.
Call me irrelevant, foolish or stupid,
But I love this whale a lot, and love as if if I could go and help her find a mate, I will.
And by BTS doing this, I’m loving them more than ever.
Thank you BTS, for opening the people eyes to my beloved Whalien 52.
Aside from how relatable her character is, I really like how she’s dealing with romance. She was hesitant at first because of her scars, but when she decided to be honest with her feeling; she didn’t beat around the bush. She didn’t confess in pathetic or embarrassing way, yet didn’t play hard to get.
She also didn’t let herself wondering around about Jang Hoon’s feeling, and ask him directly. And when Jang Hoon was hesitant because of his circumstance, Jo Eun straight things up. She didn’t try to persuade him, but kinda tell him to do things clearly. She was like; Come to your senses! Do you want me or not?
Woah, I almost clap my hand when I watched that scene. Uri Jo Eun really did well!
I don’t know how their relationship will be, but I sincerely wish they will be happy for a looooong time. It took a great courage for Jo Eun to step into that kind of act, and I hope she won’t be hurt again. If it’s too good to be true, then I hope she will be stronger whatever comes to her life.
I also give my respect for Yoon Sunbae in the latest episode. Honestly, I’m not really fond of her character since season 1. I mean, she’s not really my favourite (well, Song Ji Won always came first :D). But in the latest episode, Yoon Sunbae really impressed me with her wholeheartedly care to her roommates. She really takes care of them like a real older sister and it’s really warm my heart. Thank you for your hard work, Yoon Sunbae!
