Hey there! So, something recently made me disappointed with some fans of mysme. I've seen some fans who attempt to change the settings (mostly to Japan or America). I once met someone who full on gave them English "nicknames" because she didn't want to attempt to pronounce or use their proper names. I don't know if I'm overreacting or anything, but it bothered me. So, can you do random HCs to honour Korean culture? Like going on vacation somewhere in Korea, or celebrating a 100 days anniversary?

A/N: why do people do that wtf?? I mean i know we somewhat change the culture when we write certain requests pertaining to how an mc looks because sometimes the culture doesn’t really look kindly on the appearance but as someone who isn’t korean, i can’t get into the mentality to reject a request like that or anything, ya know?? Because it can be harmful and hurt someone (i keep it in the back of my mind what the actual view is so i dont just…. disregard it, but i do feel terrible for not addressing it) but i’d never completely REJECT the culture and change their names or anything because just what the fuck ~Admin 404


I’m sorry it’s so short omfg

               -Okay y'all, I’m pretty sure Zen knows traditional dances and our MC has to beg him for DAYS to teach them one. Any of them. Buchaechum (fan dance), Nabichum (butterfly dance), even Ilmu (line dance). Any of them. All of them. Just- JUST TEACH MC ZEN, DO IT

               -LOTUS LANTERN FESTIVAL IN HONOUR OF BUDDAHS BIRTHDAY! It’s a celebration that everyone in the group makes time for! Seeing all of the gorgeous lights and lanterns is enough to put everyone in such a good mood! The group makes it into a slight competition- who can bring MC the prettiest lantern? Winner gets a kiss on the cheek from MC! yeees mc, yes

               -Jumin has THE MOST BEAUTIFUL terraced garden you’ve ever seen in your life. He invites you over to help him with it every now and then. It relaxes him and hopes that it could do the same for you! The two of you could spend hours sitting by the lotus pond, drinking some sort of imported and expensive tea this rich guy has to have, talking about anything and everything plus helLO YOU’D GET TO SEE JUMIN IN SWEATPANTS

               -Jaehee. In. Hanbok. Think about this for a little bit. Colourful, beautiful, and just- what else can I saY???? JAEHEE IN HANBOK

               -YOOSUNG LOVES CELEBRATING HIS VERY FIRST 100 DAYS ANNIVERSARY he might not have a ton of money to spoil you like he’d like to, but he does get really creative and goes hardcore. Takes the knowledge he’s gained from all of the clubs he’s been in and makes you a ton of gifts! Coffee, cards, dinner, he makes it all just for you! He does it every 100 days though so he has to get more and more creative about it and sometimes has to go to the rest of the RFA for some ideas (MATCHING SHIRTS AND HE’S EVEN BOUGHT YOU A COUPLE’S RING BECAUSE HE WANTS TO SHOW PEOPLE HE HAS A S/O THAT HE LOVES VERY MUCH)

               -Remember when Jumin called Yoosung’s mother and he was so mad he promised to slap him with Kimchi? Ya know how Kimchi is a symbol for Korea and is considered strong? Well he definitely gave Jumin a hard slap if that counts; MC has it on video and all you can hear is the *smack* and Saeyoung laughing in the background

               -You and Saeran have had a few drinking contests, and Saeyoung cannot believe how many bottles of soju the two of you can go through?? How are you both still breathing?? It’s even worse when you add Zen into the mix, it’s as if doesn’t work on any of you. Yoosung gets one shot and he’s out for the rest of the night

               -Jaehee and MC plan a hike at least ONCE a month because the poor girl needs fresh AIR and it’s good for the both of you, y'all get out there and earn those pajeons (fritters) and dong dong ju (rice wine) at the top of that mountain!

               -You and Yoosung have to drag Saeyoung out of the house sometimes, but the three of you end up at an internet cafe more often than you’d like to admit. One time though, there was one person in LOLOL who kept killing all three of you, and the anger just kept rising- which meant the voices kept rising as well. The person on the other side of you all kept trying to stifle a laugh each time. In the Rage of Saeyoung™, he almost flipped the table until he realized the one beating you all was Saeran on the other side


               - You also can’t tell me that Jumin hasn’t tried to dance along to a few every now and then; MC has a picture they keep to themselves in remembrance

               -You and V watch the movie Shiri almost religiously?? When the two of you have movie marathon dates, it’s played at least once (“IT’S A CLASSIC, MC. CLASSIC”)

               -It’s hard to go on any dates with Saeran, but you did get him hooked on a few different K-drama’s and he reminds you constantly that he HATES YOU because of it. Don’t you DARE watch an episode without him because the boy can hold a grudge

               -K A R A O K E!!! All of you. Almost every weekend. Competitions. Somehow Saeyoung tends to win them except that one time you convinced Jumin to participate and WOW okay

Suspicious Partner Episode 16

I think this show was created to give a heart attack.

First things first, the murders are connected. That’s right, there’s a bigger plan in motion for Chan-ho and Hyun-soo, but if three people were already murdered, who and why? How did these two came across each other and what do they have in common for them to form an alliance in order to kill people? I think it has to do with the young girl Hyun-soo remembered in the last episode when he was walking at the park, listening to music. It can’t be a coincidence that the girl had what it look like the exact same music player and headphones.

I knew things wouldn’t be the same between them after Chan-ho set up on purpose for Hyun-soo to be caught. He totally did, right? It’s clear that Chan-ho has second thoughts about this plan they cooked up and his conscience it’s hunting him, which is why I give him credit for wanting to confess everything to Ji-wook or Bong-hee, but too bad Hyun-soo was listening to everything.  Whose phone do you think is tapped? Chang-ho or Bong-hee’s?

I admire Ji-wook‘s smarts to connect dots and intuition about people because he knew exactly who to look for when it came to find out the truth about Hyun-soo. And it seems our resident murderer knows he’s being suspected once again because of the look he gave Ji-wook. With all the worry about Bong-hee, I’m starting to worry about Ji-wook’s safety instead. It looks like Hyun-soo has some sort of sick soft spot for Bong-hee, so she would be safe for now.

Speaking of soft spots, Bong-hee’s confession to her mother was heartbreaking because you can feel how truthful she is about Ji-wook. Even his eavesdropping Mother was moved to almost tears and I love even more that she listened to all of it because when both Moms find out their respective kids are together and in love, they are going to have a fit. I’m looking forward to the in law wars but even more to Ji-wook’s mother knowing how much her son is love, especially after everything they went through. The callback to Ji-wook’s childhood and insomnia makes me think it’s related to his father’s death and I have to wonder if it was an accident or something else that happened. His father was a prosecutor, maybe he crossed the wrong people or found out something someone didn’t want anyone to know. What do you guys think?

I also really liked seeing our leading man pinning and sending longing looks in the way of Bong-hee but I was even more happy to see him finally doing something about it. That’s the Ji-wook I know and love, the one who goes after what he cares relentlessly, whatever it’s s case or a person, and I’m really looking forward to see what Bong-hee and Ji-wook will be like after today’s kiss, which by the way was sweet and damn hot. *fans herself*

I wonder how things will be from here on now that Ji-wook and Bong-hee lay their hearts on the table. I really enjoy their easy banter and solid friendship, I hope any romantic interactions only enhance this tacit understanding they have of each other. I’m really, really, really looking forward to see what shenanigans they have in store for us.

As for the rest of the characters, the law firm members remains awesome: lawyer Byun is a great source of comedy, but I would like to see him being a badass in court one day. Also, (Ship Captain) Lawyer Bang making all the right comments, with the support of Eun-hyuk (Maritime pilot) steering the ship with a smart move in order to lead it to safe port.

Big applause for this team and their awesome shipping skills.

“aku nggak nulis lagi, ah,” kata saya sambil ngulet di kasur.
“loh, kenapa kica?”
“ngapain juga nulis. ada yang baca juga enggak,” maksudnya mau bilang, dibaca mas yunus juga enggak.
“aku baca tau. kamu aja yang nggak tau.”
“aku cuma nulis untuk hadiah, nggak untuk yang lain-lain. aku nulis sebagai bentuk syukurku atas orang-orang yang kusayangi.”
“yaudah, kalau mau nggak nulis juga nggak papa. meskipun aku pasti kangen. pembaca kamu apalagi.”
“kenapa nggak papa? katanya aku disuruh tetap sibuk, tetap bertumbuh, tetap berkembang.”
“iya, tapi nggak harus dengan menulis. kica, intinya lakukanlah hal-hal yang membuat kamu bahagia–selama itu baik dan benar. apapun itu, aku pasti dukung kamu.”

saya diam tak menjawab, bertanya-tanya pada diri sendiri apa yang membahagiakan saya. mungkin cita-cita tertinggi saya saat ini adalah kehadiran mas yunus saat saya melahirkan, adalah kehadiran mas yunus untuk mengadzani anak pertama kami–yang terlalu mustahil sebab ada kemungkinan Kakak akan lahir saat mas yunus tugas luar negeri. pun jika mas yunus sudah kembali ke Surabaya, mas yunus tetap tidak mungkin pulang ke Bogor tiba-tiba.

“kica kangen Bogor, ya? di Bogor kamu sibuk, banyak yang dikerjain. manusia itu, semakin banyak kesibukan semakin bahagia.”
“menurutku, semakin merasa dirinya berarti dan bermakna, semakin bahagia seorang manusia. aku nggak tau seberapa bermaknanya aku di sini, seberapa bermaknanya aku di sana.”
“kamu sama Kakak harta aku yang paling berharga, kica.”
“iya. kadang sulit buat percaya itu, karena keadaan yang nggak memungkinkan. dari nikah sampai sekarang, kita belum pernah macam-macam yang biasanya jadi kegiatan bersama suami istri. belum pernah jalan-jalan bulan madu, belum pernah datang kondangan berdua, mas yunus belum pernah bisa hadir di acara-acara menulis atau iDS-ku, aku belum boleh ikut acara-acara mas yunus dan dikenalin sebagai istri, bahkan kita nggak punya banyak foto berdua karena momennya memang jarang banget ada. kita tuh, sering banget cuma bisa ngobrol kurang dari 500 kata per hari. selangka itu bisa ngobrol gini.”
“kica, sabar ya. nanti insyaAllah ada waktunya.”

saya diam tak menjawab lagi, masih ingin ada mas yunus saat kaki mulai sering kram akibat hamil besar, saat nanti harus begadang mengganti popok atau menyusui setiap beberapa jam, saat Kakak bisa menggenggam untuk pertama kali, bisa mendongak waktu tengkurap untuk pertama kali, saat pertama tumbuh gigi.

hari-hari ini adalah hari-hari terakhir sebelum kami LDR-an untuk waktu yang lumayan lama, namun tetap saja tidak banyak yang bisa kami lakukan bersama. terutama karena saya, sering harus pulang ke Bogor.

“maaf ya mas, aku sering ninggalin mas yunus. sebenarnya nggak peduli di mana aku bisa lebih bermakna, yang jelas mas yunus tetap nomor satu buatku. apapun yang mas yunus minta, insyaAllah aku penuhi. kalau aku diminta mas yunus ke Surabaya, aku pasti langsung ke sini.”
“kamu sama Kakak harta aku yang paling berharga, kica. yang aku minta cuma kamu sabar dan bersyukur. semua akan indah pada waktunya, tetapi semua waktu juga memiliki keindahan sendiri. yang aku minta, kamu bahagia.”

mas yunus kembali tenggelam pada layarnya. sambil berpikir banyak, saya mengambil lotion dan mulai memijati telapak kaki mas yunus. saya selalu ingin bersama mas yunus, tetapi malah sering meninggalkan mas yunus. di benak saya berkelebat bayangan repotnya mas yunus setiap saya harus pulang. cuci baju sendiri, masak sendiri, cuci piring sendiri, beres-beres rumah sendiri. pernah mas yunus ke rumah sakit dengan baju yang tidak disetrika–karena satu lemari habis dan mas yunus tidak sempat menyetrika baju.

“aku tau sih mas yunus orang paling sabar sedunia yang aku kenal. tapi, sabar ya mas, sama aku. mas yunus tetap yang utama (setelah Allah).”
“kicaa, cantik deh. bikinin jus dong,” katanya menyudahi sendunya saya.

seketika saya bahagia. seringkali dimintai tolong, dimintai sesuatu oleh suami, adalah kebahagiaan yang sangat besar bagi seorang perempuan–sebab di sanalah ladang pahala para perempuan terhampar.

dan kemudian, saya menulis lagi. sebab ini adalah hadiah untuk mas yunus, bentuk syukur saya atas kehadirannya.

Kang Ha-Neul (강하늘)

Frankly speaking, I’ve wondered why Kang Ha-Neul (강하늘) was wasting his talent in this cheesy melodrama called Scarlet Heart : Ryeo (2016 SBS). (Did I say I love the actors but hate the director and writer? If not, I just did.)

However, today’s episode made me realize that Prince Wang Wook (왕욱) is a great character any and every young actor would covet, because he has dramatic character development from an innocent prince with pure heart to an ambitious cold-hearted contender for the throne. And Kang Ha-Neul’s subtle and exquisite performance made the change process look so natural and probable.  I was blown away by his great acting today. Well done. A standing ovation from me.

When has he become such a good actor?  I loved Misaeng (미생 未生, 2014 tvN) but his performance was not so good in that drama. Maybe, I guess, since DONGJU; The Portrait of A Poet (동주, 2016 Korean movie)? He was really great there. I highly recommend the movie. It was one of the greatest bromance movies ever.

Actually, the only reason I kept watching Scarlet Heart : Ryeo was to feel the vague trace of Dong-Ju, the pure and innocent poet, from KHN’s Prince Wang Wook. But… KHN brilliantly surpassed my expectations. Hands down. I didn’t know he is such a versatile actor.  I felt he was made for the role. I’m sure Scarlet Heart : Ryeo will be a turing point in his acting career. 

As a Korean Sageuk freak, I really hope to see him play Prince Suyang / King Sejo (수양대군 首陽大君), the leading character in The water from a deep spring (샘이 깊은 물) which will be written by SFD writers some day.

10 meters away from Teacher Dong Ju :P

Dae Woong : Following the same principle, when I’m wearing the bead, and you meet with another man, there are some side effects on me, too.

Miho : Really? There shouldn’t be any.

Dae Woong : No, no, no. The bead has a reaction. Especially when you meet with Teacher Dong Ju. The pressure over my chest is getting more serious. Since it affects my health, I hope you’ll try not to see Teacher Dong Ju anymore.

Miho : So, if I do meet with Teacher Dong Ju in the future, I’ll stay farther away from him. Before I was too close.

Dae Woong : You too were really close together?! Ahy! So that’s why my body’s like this! At least 5 meters away.  No, 10 meters’ distance.

And then Dae Woong’s acting time! :)
