#kdramawomensweek: day 8 // age of youth love-fest | happy international women’s day!
So I pretty much put together some of my favorite scenes from Age of Youth. They’re all scenes that really hit me hard emotionally or just personally resonated with me. When Jin Myung, whose feelings have slowly been bubbling underneath the surface, finally overflows with emotion, full of rage and agony. She finally demands the apology she’s been silently asking for. When she fell to the floor in sobs, I cried with her. I felt that grief. When Yi Na realizes she’s been holding herself back and finally lets herself go. Dammit, that scene just hit me. When Eun Jae blows up and just begs for the housemates to be nice to her I could personally relate to her pain and just how nervous she must have felt to finally let that out and tell these almost strangers how alienated they made her feel and how much it had hurt her. That’s not easy.
As you can see, most of my favorite scenes include the girls all together. The relationship that developed between these girls, different in pretty much every way, from being strangers just living in a house together to sisters that loved and protected each other in any way they could was really the main strength of the show. Even that hilarious scene when the girls beat up Eun Jae’s boyfriend because they think he’s some stranger out to hurt her shows just how willing they are to protect each other. I mean, they burst out of the house the second they heard Eun Jae scream. The girls immediately went to comfort Ye Eun when she finally broke up with a boyfriend she loved so much. And when Eun Jae finally comes home after being out all night, the girls just hug her, saying that everything is okay because she’s here and she’s safe. I’m tearing up just thinking of the scene. That love for each other that made them one of the best friendships of 2016 and just in general.
What I love about the girls individual stories is the journey they went through during the drama and where they ended up. They don’t end the drama suddenly complete and whole, but you know they’ve set themselves on that track. They learn to start forgiving and loving themselves. The ghosts they’ve lived with are never completely gone but they’re not held back and tortured by them anymore.
Anyway, what I really want to say is that I love these girls so so so so so much. There’s really nothing I can say that can convey the amount of love I have for this drama and the Belle Epoque girls. It warms my heart when I think of them and I’m just so happy there’s going to be a season 2.
(。「´-ω・)ﾝ It’s been a while for this series, but it’s a’coming! Here’s just a compilation of all the extras that were released with the Volume. Extras include the volume bonus, comicomi studio, toranoana, horin love books, and animate.
From this point, we’re just gonna wait until Ch.7 comes out.
All these extras are amazing and hilarious and just sdhfkjdgf. Adorable.
i love how ruki was so unsatisfied with this part of guren during the 2009, listened to it 3 times and decided to change it.
now in the new version he brought it back to how it was originally
do u get this ? every time he performed this song he probably thought “damn fuck shit shit i should have kept it as is i dont like it”
he has been wanting to change that part for 8 years
and now he did
edit: srry this sure is confusing XD. to clear it up a bit if you listen to the recorded old version of guren at 3:11 and to the new version of guren at 3:17 you will notice the difference in lyrics XD
aoi: skye??? what are you doing here (are you crying?) skye: I’m sorry… I didn’t have time to tell you but, I’m moving a: HUH? WHERE? YOU DIDNT EVEN TELL ME??? I THOUGHT WE WERE BUDS???
skye: I’m sorry… I’m moving to Mt.Pyre, I needed change I guess… aoi: hey its ok… don’t tell anyone, but I’m leaving too!
skye: What? You didn’t tell me either? (…hypocrite) aoi: If they knew I, the prince of Ghosts, left? My people, they would cry! skye: uh, I’m sure they would have been fi- aoi: FOR THAT REASON IT HAD TO BE hush hush- your know what i mean.
aoi: I’M GOING TO OPEN A SIMPLE CUPCAKE SHOP! Far away from responsibility and the pressure of being ROYALTY! skye: Well, Aoi, I’m sure your loyal subjects will miss you very much. aoi: ah, yeah I’m going to miss them too…
aoi: you’re moving Mt.Pyre right? I’ll move there too! We’ll go together! skye: you didn’t even know where you were going? aoi: (no I was probably just gonna go back home) Now I do tho! I wan’t to go with you!

This was supposed to be a small bonus for a comic I was making but I couldn’t quite finish it. But I still liked this extra so I decided to upload it anyway. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
“OH NO WHAT HAVE YOU DONE! I MEAN SHE IS ONLY SLIGHTLY CUTE! OH CRAP I JUST SAID IT!”
“NONONO DAMMIT! Its every man for themselves quick we gotta get out of here!”
“M..mmaster Byakuya where did you go! Ddddon’t leave me! Nononothis cant be happening!”
“W..what’s the problem with her being called cute? Isn’t that a good thing”
“OH MAN WHY’D YOU HAVE TO GO AND CALL HER CUTE TOO!”
“EVERYONE JUST CALM DOWN! WE CAN EVACUATE IN A CALM AND ORDERLY FASHION! NOONE ELSE CALL HER CUTE!”
“It’s too late for that! Game over man, game over! I mean, sure if you get past the whole weird clothes thing she is kinda cute if you think about it…OH NO WHY’D I GO AND SAY THAT!”
“EVERYONE LEAVE NOW, I WILL MAKE SURE THAT NOONE HERE GETS HARMED! IF YOU MUST TAKE OUT YOUR ANGER CELES, TAKE IT OUT ON ME!”
“Don’t think I’m going to idly sit by either! Even if you are a cute girl, I won’t hold back if you try to do something to bro!”
“No no, this is fine. There is no need to become worked up over such trivial matters. How about we all just sit down, and make some polite conversations over tea, hmm?”
“What? I guess..hey everyone we’re all good now, no need to worry. Sorry if I got a little worked up there… and for calling you cute as well, I don’t really know what came over me just before. Really really sorry about that again, but I was never gonna actually fight ya or anything, you know? I wouldn’t be able to live it down if I actually did something to.. Hey if you ever wanna just let loose on me though, just ask or whatever and… Kyoko what’s wrong?”
“You have a knife hidden in your sleeve.”
“Presuming I indeed was hiding one, it would only be used to spread jam onto various breakfast foods, and in no way would I ever contemplate utilising it for any sort of violent attack on any living being. Next you will say that I also plan to poison the tea, and that this sudden change in tone was all just an act so that everyone would lower their guard. To think you would take such unfounded accusations so far, I see that you fail to place even a modicum of trust in your fellow classmates..
“Just give them to me.”
“ Fine, I did have a knife, I was just testing you! .. Here you go!”
