Episode Notes : 120310 (Additionals)

Watching Teuk’s attempt at scaring Sora from behind reminds me that sometimes I actually do think that they complement each other so well because one is at the mental age where the other is physically. =P

Ahh! The cactus-wannabe thing behind where the bears went on is not a stand. Tis a coat rack!! I geddit now!

One thing about these two: They both have distinct laughter. When you hear it, you know it is them!

So the recipe book that Sora bought was supposed to be a BASIC book, but going through the first page was challenging for Sora. Aigoo! What’s going to happen to Teukie’s seafood stew? =P But I like that Sora is willing to meet the challenge. She’s cool that way! Melikes!!

Teukie’s such a child!! ROFL!! But I would have been happier if he had hugged her from the back instead of patting her arm. Hee! =P

Think they have yet to see how the house looks like since all the furniture went in. They look REALLY happy!! But what makes me happiest is that they DO have a piano in the house!! YAY!!

Sora’s brought lots of things with her for the house! A heart-hug cushion, similar to the ones that they sell in Ikea and a pair of plush bear hand puppets that fans gave. Sora Bear and Teukie Bear!!

She’s also brought a recipe book. It is a quite a big book! They’re flipping through it and he’s telling her what he wants from it. She says that she will try her best. Sora-sshi! Fighting!!! p(^^)q

Episode Notes : 111008

Thanks to the MBC strike and the drought of new WGM episodes, there is a bit of time for me to go back and catch up on writing on older TeukSora episodes that I did not get to write about. I initially thought of working backwards but I figured that since I have the time, that I might as well work from the very first episode since I would be rewatching everything all over again anyway. So here is the first of the result of that ‘working backwards’ that I am doing. With any luck, I will get derailed from doing this very soon when the strike is over but till then, I shall endeavor to catch up as much as I can.

The ‘ShimShimTaPa’ Call

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!

Aii… EunHyuk ah… *sigh*

This expression and stance of HyukJae’s is probably the best representation of the past weekend. Truly. It was a REALLY BAD weekend to be a HyukJae fangirl. I had so much to say that I ended up not knowing what to say (and am still in a mess over how to say what I want to say) such that I just spent all my time after the broadcast ended watching and re-watching the group date in its entirety over and over again. And each time I would end up screaming at him through the latter half of the broadcast. But ah well. The pitfalls of being a fan. You shriek at him in pique and ire when he is making an absolute ass out of himself but still love him after the sound of that last scream of frustration has faded away. Such is the irrationality of it all. Thankfully the whole hullabaloo has since died down and no, fangirl-ism was not what I wanted to talk about.

My initial thought over the Fighting Junior group date was that it would run along the lines of that which Ssangchu had between SS501 and the Wonder Girls, ie everybody sits to share a meal, exchange a bit of information about themselves and their interests, play a few games. Same sort of a thing, just a little (??) rowdier coz it is, after all, a group date involving SuJu boys. And it pretty much turned out that way, just that I did not expect them to make it into an entire variety within a variety, complete with a show title, slogan, etc. Which, to my mind, was where the whole problem lay coz that took away the reality aspect of the programme and made it fully into a variety.

Episode Notes : 120128

So this week we start off with a quick recap of what happened last week before the girls start demonstrating their respective talents.

Think EunSeo was demonstrating the use of some dialect while Sena said that coz she’s bad in aegyo she had been practicing using the Korean word game/ rhyme thing. It’s the one where one says something and with the last word of that sentence, create another one using that as the sentence’s first word. She picked HyukJae as her partner for demonstration.

I don’t really understand all of it, but I could understand/catch ‘bear’ and where there are bears involved, there is bound to be cuteness!

Dilly*Dally – The ‘Group Date’ Bakery

‘Because I have the heart, body, mind and soul of a foodie, I am putting aside everything to touch on the place that Fighting Junior had their group date in. In light of the fact that one still has SEVERAL half-written posts about everything else that has happened over the course of the last two months (urk!!), one shall endeavour to keep this short and relatively sweet. One, however, cannot promise that this will be painless. This is, afterall, a post concerning food. Unless you happen to not like food then that is a totally different issue.

This all started out because I caught a glimpse of the floormats that TeukSora were trodding on when they entered the bakery. MBC’s editing room was being sloppy as usual so they covered up the name of the bakery here but not there. Anyway, this is MBC and we know how they can (not) work so…

*sigh*…

So some sections of ELFdom are up in arms because Sora set up a group date for Fighting Junior. And Sora’s own Twitter account is being bombarded by fans who are, to put it mildly, highly against the part that she played in getting ‘their men’ involved with other women. Honestly, I find the Sora-bashing sigh-worthy and totally ridiculous.

For one, the boys were the ones that requested for a group date. If you want specifics, HyukJae was the one that came up with it. Now why didn’t anybody go run after Myeolchi’s skinny bum then to ask as to where in that compact frame of his did he get the guts to go ask for a group date on national television, especially when he’s an idol and (apparently) exclusive property to his fans only?

That aside, given that the date request was a request made in exchange for favours done, I do not see how anybody, in possession of a basic, common sense of courtesy, can say ‘no’ especially if he/she was the one that asked for favours to be done. Sora asked Fighting Junior for a favour. Fighting Junior asked her to set up a group date for them in exchange. Fighting Junior delivered. Sora delivered. It was as simple as that. Why should she be shot for it? I would, in fact, be more concerned if she promised but did not deliver coz then she would have been stringing the boys along with empty promises, which to me, is a hundred times more heinous a crime than helping them expand their social circle at their request.

Even if Sora had been mindful of the fact that fans would be pissed and really wanted to quietly sidestep the whole thing, SungMin came up to remind her and asked her about it when he made his guest appearance on the WGM Year End Special. Now, if somebody reminded you on national television that you promised them something and have yet to act on it, I don’t know about you, but I would definitely make it a point to haul arse and make sure it gets done soonest possible. Best if within the next hour to keep further potential embarrassment at a minimal!

My bottomline to the whole matter, is really this: They asked her to do something. She did it. And from the preview, they seemed happy. And to me, NOTHING matters more than them being happy. So there!

Episode 10 : Quick Notes

Thanks to crappy weather and the resulting feeling of general lethargy, I found myself sitting at home today watching, for the first time ever, ‘We Got Married’ on ‘live’ stream. And I tell you, as a TeukSo fan, it was well worth it! I consider myself lucky that the iMBC was not laggy but being a stream, there is a lot of compromise in quality for audio/visual.

In any case, here is a quick summary of the episode using notes that I made during the ‘live’ stream. I might be ‘off’ on some spots but most of it is here.
