You know what I thought was the hands down best line of this episode?
It’s this line right here
(yuuri jishin no miryoku de tatakaeru)
“You can fight with your own personal charm.” (subs are above but just in case the image doesn’t load)
Why, you ask? That’s because if you remember this scene from episode 4
that comes with the line
(vikutoru ha vikutoru de ite hoshii)
“I want Victor to be Victor” / “I want you to stay who you are, Victor”
It is the scene in which Yuuri explicitly tells Victor it’s okay for him to just be himself around Yuuri instead of changing his identity for him, and the reason I believe that the line in episode 6 is the best in the whole episode, is because it mirrors this scene. Victor tells Yuuri it’s okay to be himself while he skates to Eros. It’s okay to skate just as Yuuri and not as a pork cutlet bowl fatale, or a beautiful woman, because to Victor, plain old Yuuri is good enough.
And to make things even better, this line from episode 4
(fumikonda bundake fumikonde kureru)
“He (Victor) opens up just as much as I opened up, for me”
Of which a more accurate translation and discussion can be found here. This line, which denotes a mutual and balanced bond between Victor and Yuuri is evidence that Victor isn’t just saying it’s okay for Yuuri to skate as Yuuri on a whim, he’s saying it on purpose and he really does mean it. Victor actively furthers his relationship with Yuuri, and returns the favour by accepting him for who he is this episode, just as Yuuri has done for himself in episode 4.
Another sign that Victor and Yuuri are getting closer is Yuuri’s use of casual language instead of formal language forms. I noted before, in episode 4 as well, that Yuuri had begun to use casual language with Victor, and that it signalled Yuuri’s opening up, as well as how he started becoming more and more comfortable around Victor. However soon after, Yuuri reverted back to using formal language, reestablishing their formal relationship.
But in the last 2 episodes, after the 5 month skip between episode 4 and 5, we have seen Yuuri make use of casual language more and more with Victor, even going so far as to use polite language forms at the beginning of this episode
(ano vikutoru, nesasete kudasai)
“Um Victor, please let me sleep”
which although acts as a means to convey a point, is also playful in overall tone, and further portrays Victor and Yuuri’s budding relationship, which is developing so beautifully and naturally throughout the season.
What she really means:
In DDD of The Symphony of Sorcery world Sora and Riku had to get song pieces to help wake up Mickey. The song was Dearly Beloved. Riku had the melody while Sora had the harmony. The harmony usually completes the melody so does that mean that Sora completes Riku? Also the scene where they are discussing how to wake up Sora, Dearly Beloved starts playing again when Riku talks about Sora on how he's a dork and that it's his job to take care of him and he heard Sora call out his name. So does this mean that Dearly Beloved is the SoRiku theme song in the KH series????
I could have also called this post “10 reasons why I am still single and won’t find a boyfriend any time soon” and it would still make sense.
After the Notebook came out, thousands of women (if not more) wanted to have their own version of the kiss-in-the-rain moment between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. Well, for me it is the same, except it is not just one scene and it is because of Korean Dramas. Here are 10 drama scenes (and their dramas) that I wouldn’t mind live in my life.
The “I’m so glad you are back after a year of pain” scene from Descendants of the Sun…but to be honest I could live any romantic or bromantic scenes from the drama and I would be happy.
The “sit you up” scene from Oh My Ghost!
The “we accidentally fell asleep together” from Pinocchio….or any drama actually. I am sucker for this scene.
The “back hug” scene in general. I love this scene a lot.
The “I am passed out in a bus and you are looking out for me” scene. I mean seriously…you may look like hell but at least someone is looking out for you.
The “I am so glad to see because I need comfort despite us fighting” scene from Cheese in the Trap. This was one of my favorite scene in the drama because Hong Seol who was at her limit finally let herself go and live a little.
The “I only have time to kiss you before I disappear again” scene from Who From Another Star. I am not a huge fan of aliens but if they look like Kim Soo Hyun I certainly don’t mind.
The “ I am lonely” scene from The Heirs. Because no one in his right mind would say no to a Kim Woo Bin opening up his heart to you and telling you he is lonely!
The “Let’s drink a beer” scene from A Witch’s Romance.
The “I have waited for you to travel 400 years in time to see me” scene from Queen In Hyun’s Man. My love for this scene knows no boundary.
Bonus: The “I am literally in a drama” scene because let’s be honest who wouldn’t like to be the lead character of their own drama?
Love love love that lads post but I especially loved the phrase "Ramsey's brats" I was just wondering if you could elaborate on that a bit more, maybe on how each of them are "spoiled princes" in their own ways and how Geoff 'totally doesn't' pander to them and spoil them
always consider that by the time they’re all in the FAHC and going
places the Lads are, at the oldest, still in their early 20’s. Which
super young in this world; considering the big bosses tend to be old
blood, and of course the young crooks are around, pressing at the
edges for more power, but it’s pretty unusual to be that young and
actually have any. To already be in a crew with sway rather than just
running about causing mayhem or trying to survive playing foot
soldier for some big gang to prove your worth. Ramsey’s Lads, on the
other hand, have everything. Have respect and power and the ear of
the king of the city - far more influence than a pack of miscreant 20
year olds should have.
not like they haven’t earned their places - for all Geoff loves his
crew he isn’t charitable, hasn’t gotten where he is by taking in
those who can’t give him anything in return – but the Lads have
certainly gotten away with a lot more than they would have anywhere
else. All that power that early on? The rampant rumours and licence
to do near anything they can think of? It has to go to your head;
your early 20s are turbulent enough without anyone thinking you’re a
god. Thinking you’re a devil. Thinking you either a target or utterly
untouchable, deadly threat or merely children playing with disaster.
most guys their age a bit of temper means some minor scuffles or
ruined relationships, a dramatic fight at work or an impressive
display of road rage. When the Lads get pissed off they burn down
buildings, destroy lives, smash their way through fortunes and race
away in stolen super cars. They are ruinous, and Geoff, many would
argue, is far too indulgent. Has been from the first Lad to the last,
clear enough for all to see; enabling, encouraging, letting them go
unpunished even after uncountable infractions.
blind man could see the way Ramsey folds for the Golden Boy; they’re
always impeccably professional when they work the same meeting, the
frontman and the kingpin dominating any they come up against, but on
their own time there’s little Geoff wouldn’t do for Gavin. The first
of his collection of streetrats, the youngest when he joined, the one
Ramsey’s always been soft on, always treated like family. Generally
speaking what Gavin wants Geoff inevitably gives, setting the example
the rest of his crew bends to, all hopelessly endeared, all far too
indulgent. They’ve let Gavin run wild, let him set his own rules,
walk and talk and behave however he wants, with airs and graces that
don’t belong to him, and look where that’s gotten everyone. Ramsey’s
first little prince, the baby megalomaniac with sharp teeth and
sharper eyes, collecting a veritable army of protectors he doesn’t
even need, the one who has the whole world falling at his feet.
any other gang Michael would be made to hold his tongue or risk
losing it. He might not actually be as temperamental as they say but
the boy certainly has a temper, and the kind of frank no-nonsense
attitude that has him saying whatever he thinks no matter who he is
talking to. It’s not that he’d incapable of tact so much as he
doesn’t care for it, refuses to offer respect to anyone who hasn’t
personally earned it and has no fear of causing offence. Geoff merely
keeps him away from delicate negotiations and lets him loose on
everyone else. More than one have called on Ramsey to discipline his
dog, to which Geoff can only laugh. Laugh and invite Michael in to
say his piece, leave the room as Michael cracks his knuckles, still
chuckling as arrogant complaints turn terrified pleading. Michael is
Ramsey’s ruthless prince, all sharp edges and brash defiance, the
unbridled threat whose never learnt his place, the one who makes the
whole world tremble.
has perhaps the strangest expression of Geoff’s unusual tolerance for
the Lad’s antics. Ray is, of course, a full member of the FAHC, of
the inner crew, as integral and absolute as any of the rest of them,
but he isn’t always actually with them. A crew member who is not
always around and under Geoff’s command. He comes and goes whenever
he needs to, never when he’s needed at home, when he’s got a role to
play in some upcoming plan, but often with little if any notice. It’s
a particularly bizarre thing for a crime lord to tolerate, to accept
and allow and make no effort to punish or stamp out. Which says
nothing of Ray’s other eccentricities; the strange vehicles and
peculiar paint jobs, the irreverent drawl and inappropriate humour.
Ray is Ramsey’s errant prince, distant and aloof and just out of
sight, somehow always around when he’s really needed, the one who has
the whole world in his sightlines.
is a clear-cut example of sensible practicality dying at the hands of
the FAHC. When he came to them he was inherently pragmatic; all the
Lads were to some degree of course, had to be to survive the way they
had, but even in their tensest moments Michael would still lose his
temper, Ray would refuse aid to his own detriment, Gavin would take
unjustified risk to go after something obscenely shiny. Jeremy was
reasonable, down to earth, Jeremy made whatever sacrifices, mitigated
whatever risk, planned and prepared and adjusted on the fly for the
best chance of survival. He had flare, sure, but at the end of the
day he would put aside personal preference for common sense. The FAHC
ruined that. Dragged out all the loudest parts of him, the show-off,
the pot stirrer, the wearer of utterly ridiculous clothing. One might
think the Lads did it, and they certainly helped – latched on and
pulled Jeremy into a hurricane of wicked grins and bad ideas, all
arrogant confidence and military grade weaponry – but Geoff is
hardly as innocent as he claims to be. Not when he kept pushing
Jeremy to think bigger, dream higher, to come up with the most
ridiculous plans then watch in astonishment as the FAHC made them
happen. Ramsey’s newest prince, the one with kind eyes and dark
ideas, who pushes all kinds of limits just to see if he can, the one
who caught the whole world by surprise.
are few who know of the FAHC who don’t also curse the existence of
the Lads. Who aren’t full of complaints, call them too loud, too
proud, too arrogant. Enraged by Ramsey’s glaring favouritism, by the
flagrant absence of respect. It’s the crux of the whole matter
really, respect. The way it’s expected, demanded. The way the Lads
are more willing to die than give it on command. It’s the reason
people say Ramsey’s ruined them, let their leashes grow too long,
spoiled and self-important, raging egos and unbound impudence.
not wrong, really. The Lads are wild things now, indomitable,
untameable. They’d never settle for a harsher ruler, for normal crew
hierarchy or forced deference, never let themselves be muzzled or
brought to heel, but then isn’t that exactly what Geoff wanted? Isn’t
that just what he planned? Vicious and untouchable and entirely his.
Too headstrong, too reckless and often blinded by their insatiable
destructive drive to chase entertainment, the bane of his life
sometimes, but still incomparably loyal. The Lad’s who by all means
should be incredibly selfish. Who by all accounts still are,
so long as you understand that their sense of self now encompasses
the closest members of their crew. The violent little princes who’d
do anything for their king, do the utterly unthinkable without
batting an eye, who tear into their own kingdom for amusement but
will protect it from outsiders with unprecedented fury.
Lads have been called many things, spoiled brats, violent
delinquents, overconfident upstarts. Called ruined, called rotten,
thought tolerated irritants, feral complications and dozens of other
uninformed underestimations. Some accusations are more accurate;
those who call them wicked, call them immoral, reckless, bloodthirsty
and disturbingly possessive. The
Lads are devious, are unapologetically ruthless and unexpectedly
intelligent, they are in may ways older than their years while still
immature in all the worst places. The Lads would tear the whole world
apart for their crew, but the FAHC would do no less for them, utterly
enamoured by the vicious little monsters. Ramsey’s brats, who have
the biggest bads in the country wrapped around their little fingers
and know it all to well, who’ve come from variations of absolutely
nothing and have somehow stolen themselves a kingdom. Who have no
intention of letting anyone or anything take it from them.
