MBC! WTH!?

Two hours after the episode aired and I thought I had gotten over it after having railed on Twitter and ranting to Mieru via Whatsapp as well. I even thought that no, maybe I should wait for the subs to emerge before saying anything further since my listening comprehension isn’t all that spectacular. But after getting dinner and having had the time to sit and think for a bit, I think that it is imperative that I let the steam all out before I burst at the seams.

Seriously MBC. WHAT is your problem?? Today’s episode was so good for our couple and you had to go ruin it by throwing in that crap excuse of a circus sideshow with WooJung. If I am going to give WooJung the benefit of the doubt that they would not be so evil on their own as to even THINK of stealing Dimple House from TeukSo on their own, guess who is left to blame? That’s right MBC. YOU!!!

YOU!! How could you even allow a plot-line with the possibility of TeukSo losing Dimple House?? That house is TeukSo’s!! WooJung are supposed to have their own house and they HAD their own house!! If you want to reduce them to living out of a camping car, that is YOUR problem and WooJung’s! WHY do you have to involve TeukSo?? WHY??

And YOU!! WOOJUNG!! I actually like the both of you individually so I was really quite appalled with what was shown on today’s broadcast! It was a classic demonstration of what it takes to be at the peak of horrendously BAD social behavour! You were like the relatives from hell that some of us spend 363 days in a year praying HARD over to develop spontaneous bouts of amnesia so that they not visit during Christmas and New Year!

YOU!! You covetous pair!! You have A LOT of guts showing up at Dimple House the way you did! Not only did you persist in going to TeukSo’s, at half past ten in the night, plotting to challenge them out of their abode, you went ahead with the ‘visit’ despite Teukie calling EunJung back to ask that you make the trip on another day because they were tired and thinking of calling it a day already. They even greeted you at the door in their pajamas! Pajamas!! They were ready for bed and you two clowns still showed up!

And YOU!! Showing up at that sort of an hour aside, you proceeded to not only inspect the house but even sat yourselves on the host couple’s bed! TEUKSO’S BED!! Excuse me, but have you not been taught that it is just plain RUDE to plonk yourself onto someone else’s bed? And it was a bed that these poor people were all dressed for, all ready to rest in till YOU showed up! It’s not like either of you are DongHae who’s a brother, and even his resting on their bed was already appalling! Teukie didn’t even want you in their bedroom but you just barged in nonetheless for a tour! YOU!! You were just plain intruding and on behalf of my Teukie and his Sora, I take MUCH offense at that!

But truly. Nothing. Absolutely NOTHING beats just how annoyed I am at MBC even allowing WooJung to challenge TeukSo for the possession of Dimple House. If WooJung was pushed to do it, then whoever it is that is responsible for this farce in MBC? YOU! You deserve to have poop RAINED on your head by a flock of incontinent fowl! And WooJung! If you wanted to do this on your own accord then the both of you deserve to live out the rest of your married life with nothing else but a cereal box for shelter!

KEEP YOUR PAWS TO YOURSELF AND OFF DIMPLE HOUSE AND LEAVE MY TEUKIE AND HIS SORA ALONE!! ALL OF YOU!!

*ANGRY!!*

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!!

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

Dilly*Dally – The ‘Group Date’ Bakery (A Follow-Up)

Remember this? That particular branch of Dilly*Dally apparently has some new signage up trumpeting their role in Fighting Junior’s blind date! (Photo credits as tagged!)

My only gripe is this: Did they HAVE to use a cap of HyukJae giving that mobile in a cake box to EunSeo?? Granted, the cake box was the bakery’s but still… -_-

I shall endeavour to go check the place out myself next month! Wish me luck!! ^^

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!
