Almost three years since he declared on ‘Strong Heart’ that he would be shedding singledom prior to enlistment, we now find out from JungSu as to how that grand plan of his panned out. Funnily enough, a glance at one of my past posts primed me to the fact that Yoo YeonSuk was the one reacting to Teukie’s ambitions (‘Warm and Cozy’!!) but I digress.
This is a translation of a translation hence the sentence structure of some parts have been changed to make for easier reading. And while I tried to stick as closely as I could to the original meaning, there might have been slight deviations where i did not intend, so please do bear these in mind while reading.
Anyway, this was JungSu’s reasoning for picking the song ’I Believe’ for SuJu’s performance (or lack thereof) on ‘Radio Star’. Note that the theme was ‘The song that I would sing for the bad woman that made me cry’.
So Teukie’s mom apparently told one of my fellow sisters in fandom that Americano has been his drink of choice since he entered the army. Call me biased but I somehow doubt that slogging through simulated trench warfare (or similar) had anything to do with it. I must say though that Teukie has changed and/or matured quite a lot over the last two years (his lack of a return to the dormitory room that he had clung on to as ‘home’ being the most obvious sign), and I think that personal tragedy had a lot to do with it.
Now that he is back, I should probably go resurrect my hacked-and-therefore-deleted Twitter account as well…
I know I am two weeks behind in my writing but this seems to be the hot topic of the moment and since I am in the mood, I figured that I had better get this out of the way before I get sidetracked like I have been the last couple of weeks! (Everything is half-written!! Procrastination will be my downfall!!)
To cut a long story short, some kind souls at Baidu posted some translations of news articles in which Teukie mentioned Sora and WGM. I think they are worth sharing so I took the liberty of translating these translations.
Do note though that since these are translations from translations, I (as usual) took some liberties. The sentence structure of some parts have been changed while translating to make for easier reading while keeping as close I could to the original meaning of the sentences as a whole, so do bear these in mind while reading.
A sojourn through Dimple Couple @ Baidu produced this little gem of an article, which proved to be quite an interesting read, so I decided to do a quick translation from the Chinese translation to share. I am a little lazy to do the grey boxes hence am just hyperlinking to the thread on Baidu in case anybody wants to have a look at it.
The extracts of the article located at the top of the Chinese translation has been omitted because being a ‘highlights’ portion, it just repeats what was said below. The sentence structure of some parts have also been changed while translating to make for easier reading while retaining the original meaning of the sentences as a whole.
WGM’s PD Kim JunHyeon’s Revelation : Researching an Artiste’s Ideal Before Deciding a Match
What is the common factor between Alex and ShinAe, Crown J and Seo InYoung, Kim WonJoon and Park SoHyeon?
All couples that appeared in MBC’s ‘We Got Married’ (hereinafter referred to as ‘WGM’) became the topic of ‘real romance’ rumors after their appearances.
Since it is ‘dry season’ now, I figured that I would take the chance to work backwards and cover those things that I always wanted to talk about but could not coz I was either busy or away, and one of those things was this, Sora’s call into ‘ShimShimTaPa’.
Hours after this call came about, I had to go catch a flight to Okinawa so I watched a recording of the broadcast sans subs while enroute to the airport in a cab. Even without subs on a tiny screen, the happiness that Teukie radiated was simply blinding. Actually, ‘happy’ does not even begin to describe the feeling that he was reflecting on his face. ‘Ecstatic’ probably comes a lot closer. But yes, Park seobang was a VEEEEEERY happy camper that night!
SuJu’s in-house fish has something to say about it.
@donghae861015: 특이형이랑 같이본 힐링캠프^^ 멀리계신 어머니가 생각이나네요*^^* 늦었으니 내일 일어나서 바로 전화드려야겠어요!!사랑합니다 어머니^^
Translation : Healing Camp that I watched together with Teukie-hyung^^ It made me think of my mother who’s far away now*^^* Since it’s late, I’ll wake up tomorrow and call her right away!! I love you mother^^
Translation: You know what I meant by ideal type right?^^The heart… We should have kind hearts~~ And be good to our parents ㅠㅠ Even if we try hard, it’s not enough… ㅠㅠ To have a beautiful heart.. is really important.. It comes out through a person’s manner of speech.. doesn’t it?… ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
@donghae861015: @special1004 Yeah !! That’s right !! 말할때 들어보면 알지*^^*
Translation : Yeah !! That’s right !! You would know just by listening to her speak*^^*
For those of you who still fail to feel any remorse over bashing and/or doubting Teukie over his use of the word “ideal” in his tweet. If you still do not get it after reading this exchange, I have nothing save for sympathy for you over the absence of anything substantial under your cranium in the space between your ears.
And yes, if you were having doubts over it, I did just call you an idiot.
So it now seems that some are upset with Teukie (again!) because of this deleted tweet of his:
@special1004 :상상은 발전하게 만들고 망상은 주변까지 피해를줌요즘은 망상자들이 많아 지고있어 인터넷이 좋기만한게 아니야~^^
Translation : Imagination brings innovation and delusion brings damage. There are a lot of delusional people, so the Internet isn’t all good ~ ^^
To those who thought that Teukie was referring to TeukSora fans in his tweet and therefore calling TeukSora fans delusional, you are correct because you completely do fall under the ‘delusional’ category. Why? ‘Because you are totally missing the point! What made you think that he is referring to TeukSora fans as being the delusional ones? Is it because TeukSora fans were the ones that went after him for what he said? Where in those two short sentences does it even indicate that he thinks that fans who support Sora and himself are delusional? Did it ever occur to you that he might simply be talking about those over-imaginative people who persistently channel their energies into reading too much into what he says or does as being delusional because they ‘see’ things that do not exist? Or maybe it is because you are one of those who are so preoccupied with finding more to what he says that you are once again blind to what he really means.
Unless you are born inbuilt with a hypersensitive defence mechanism, you have to agree with me that in our daily lives, we more often than not just take things at face value. Why? ‘Because 99% of the time, things really are just as they are without any complications or complexities. For example, if you want to take a ride on the 295 bus. Do you bother yourself with why the 295 bus is numbered 295, who manufactured the bus, what fuel the bus is running on, how long the driver has been driving the bus or even question if the driver knows the route that the 295 travels on before you board it? I am sure you don’t. Why? ‘Because it is the 295 bus and the bus route goes to where you want to go and you just trust it as it is.
So why is it that we cannot read a simple tweet of 140 characters and take it the same way, ie just as it is?
Life itself is complicated enough without us complicating it. So please. Let us continue living simple, uncomplicated lives and just love Teukie and Sora as they are without reading too much into things because it is not only tiring for us, it is very exhausting for them as well.
Hereinafter commences some very candid and pointed commentary, ie my personal take on this entire farce of an incident. If you wish to read, you may do so but it is to be done entirely at the risk of your own displeasure because I personally feel very strongly, at this point in time, that the situation calls for me to be neither civil or neutral. Hence, if you think that you will, in all likelihood, be upset, I suggest that you pass this by and just move on along with reading something else. Please do NOT come biting at me if you do read and get upset because you have been duly warned.
