The photoshoot is not the end of the road

To be honest, I was, one of those, that felt a chill creep into the deepest recesses of my heart when I heard that TeukSo had gone for a wedding photoshoot because, like it or not, history has had it that couples on WGM left the show within weeks of the shoot. But the more that I chewed on it, the more I figured that this does not necessarily mean that it is the end of the road for TeukSo.

For one, Teukie, at least, has been open with how he actually likes being on the programme. Well. Not quite worded as directly as that, but he has protested against allegations of the programme being cancelled during the Dark Void. And with how Teukie is about work, if we are going to take this purely from a work point of view, I do not think that he is going to let this one run away that soon, especially since that means the possibility of free time for him and he has resolved (for better or worse) to break his back working all the way till he enlists.

That and there is Teukie’s introduction to Sora’s parents at the photoshoot itself. I have watched and followed a number of couples on WGM, and unless it was those that I skipped over watching, I do not recall having couples meet parents shortly before break-ups. It just does not make sense. If they were really moving to take them off-air, I do not think that her parents would have appeared this late into the game, IF the game was really coming to an end. No matter how I look at it, there is no need to add to an equation that is a lost cause. You only add to it if there is value to the addition. Bringing extra people in means more work (and stress) for the crew too, so I honestly do not think that people are going to bother themselves with dealing with extras if TeukSo was going to end their run soon.

That said, TeukSo’s run IS going to end and pretty soon as well because of Teukie’s looming military duties. But I have faith that if Teukie is going to make an exit, he is going to do it on his own terms. And if I take this in light of his recent comments, it will not be till Enlistment Day.

Chin up folks! Tis all not over till the fat lady sings! ^^

Episode Notes : 120606

Huwaah! 4 months of not meeting face to face?? Teukie’s DEFINITELY going to be awkward!! LOL!!

Er… So. MBC. Am I supposed to be less pissy at you because you filmed my Teukie talking about his Sora during the Paris trip? No. Doesn’t work that way. Not when you didn’t bring her along! I’m steadfastly holding that against you, you stupid broadcaster with the whatshisface who is still selfishly holding onto his seat at the top! TSK!

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!!

Episode Notes : 120310

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

So JinWoon got there first

See Teukie? This is what happens when you waste time pretending to be polite and considerate when all you really want to do is pounce and hoover up her face. I sincerely hope that your laptop, iPad and television are all still intact. Then again, they probably are still in danger all through tomorrow till after the gossip columns across all media forms have had their field day. It is, after all, only two days after your ambitions towards progress with Sora were laid bare for all the world to see.

Actually, we all knew it after watching how the both of you bed-shop but that is another story for another day…

Next time, talk less act more! Put that mouth of yours to other better uses instead of digging graves for yourself, you frustrating man!!

PD Kim JunHyeon on the couples of ‘We Got Married’

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.

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.

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!

Hae helps with defining Teuk’s “ideal”

Remember this?

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^^

@special1004: @donghae861015 뭐가 이상형인지 알겠지?^^마음이…우리도 착한 맘~~글구 부모님한테 잘하자 ㅠㅠ 노력해도 잘안돼…ㅠㅠ 맘이 정말 이쁜게..중요해..사람 말투에 배어나옴..그치?…ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

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.
