The Master’s Sun: Watching TWO Rom-Coms in one….

I knew from the start that TMS is on my MUST watch list. This is not a drama that I’ll wait for both episodes to air and watch on a Friday night. This is not one of those dramas to pass the time because I wasn’t sleepy and ended up watching the entire series after finally getting my heart to twitch on episode 6 or something.
This was a drama that I knew I HAVE TO watch because of GHJ. I absolutely loved her character in TGL. I haven’t seen any other drama/movie she was on. That drama was enough to make a fan out of me. SJS, well of course he’s a hottie. I’ve only seen him in C&A, bits and pieces of GHOST, and missed Road # 1 entirely because it was not a genre I’m interested in. I knew that this is going to be one of those dramas that I will have to watch first after work then go get the kids, do errands, watch it again before going to bed.
What I didn’t know is how just like JW, I went ALL THE WAY as far as I can go. I didn’t know that I would fall in love with anything and everything about this drama, on and off screen. I didn’t know that I’d be stalking Soompi for images and tidbits, and ohh emm gee – watching BTS footage—-over and over and over and over and —well you get the idea
Never in the few years have I been watching Korean dramas that I follow every little thing about the drama. I usually just stalk without logging in, logging in if I have something to say. I’ve shipped OTP and second lead pairings before – but I’ve never, ever shipped an on screen OTP to become a real life OTP – until now.

I’d like to blame myself for watching the BTS footage because the fan made images is not enough to pass the 7 days of torture for the next 2 episodes. Then as I saw the first BTS [first to me], I saw sparks fly. In my head, is it normal for sparks to fly like that? I got curious so I googled other TMS footage, I saw the press conference. I’m like man oh man, I’m watching history in the making here, then a kind soul translated the K Star interview and I’m like yeah – he’s into her, just holding back for no apparent reason, or for professionalism’s sake.

Watching TMS is like watching two romantic comedies in one. The first one in which the script is written for them to memorize, and portray, and the other one where they write their own story. I think I’m more in love with the idea of GHJ and SJS getting together than I am curious about how JW and GS will get back together.

I get super excited at the latest BTS just to confirm or debunk my suspicions that they are attracted to each other. I don’t know what it is, but I really, really, really want them to end up together off screen.

Watching the latest BTS today, I mean seriously, if a person thinks the other is the greatest and NO ONE can top that [acting], wouldn’t that person in the back of his head say to himself….”I must have that greatest person in my life for MYSELF because there is NO ONE like her”???!!!

Watching TMS made a complete delusional out of me. I’m already delusional as it is due to my real life struggles, and Kdramas are my outlet – then comes SJS and GHJ playing push and pull it’s driving me crazy.

The Master’s Sun: My thoughts on episode 12

i started with the episode with this mentality: “i can handle anything” quoting GS in my head…i knew it’s about that time that they’ll create an angsty plot twist to separate the newly formed couple…but the writers/director/pd said: really? then handle this… JW dies. uhm yeah…shock is an understatement. i think it’s safe to say that we are all still in denial with yesterday’s episode. but that didn’t stop me from still loving this show. after mellowing out i’ve come to terms with last night’s story line – i think

there are so many possibilities and i’d log in @soompi and relay my thoughts….i didn’t think to post this here till now….

is it a dream? who’s dreaming?
i mean, the doors were closed – GS can’t open it from the inside, will it open from the outside?
is he dead? with 4 episodes left? no one got the call that he’s hurt unless that’ll air in episode 13.
i think one angsty episode is enough, the ahjummas got their wish, the romance died.
does it make sense that he’ll get the same ability as hers? or does it make sense for him to lose his ability to make them disappear?
at this point they have a lot of issues to resolve and by JW “dying” it’s only going to make it worse, unless he becomes a comical ghost like jumping in front of KW scaring him away if he tries to be close to GS [hmmm]
is sec Kim good or bad? how much does he know?
is JW’s “spirit” going to look for CHJ? since she hasn’t really shown up in front of GS….did he intentionally do that because he told GS not to worry about that case anymore, and he’s out to solve this on his own, because GS told him to face his fears?
is his fear finding out the truth? what is the truth he’s looking for?

wargrave—serial killer….she is a serial killer for sabotaging all of JW’s engagements. they didn’t really say what happened, but i think the word accidents were mentioned.

my opinion, JW will be a ghost for a couple more episodes.

overall though, i think the sister’s know what they’re doing. i’m sure at this point it’s for the ratings…since they’re airing episodes next week and they’re close to the 20% mark.

In A Frenzy for The Master’s Sun

My last online drama that I was able to watch from start to finish was Flower Boy Next Door. I watched this as soon as I got home from work, then I’d watch it again on Dramafever through Netflix. Then I’d watch TEN 2 on Hulu Plus. After FBND, I wanted to watch others. But I was in cloud nine, and I knew that nothing will compare to this drama. It was my first drama for 2013 and I didn’t want to erase the feeling/rush it gave me.

Then came the news about another Hong Sister’s drama. Personally, I haven’t watched ALL of their written works, but the ones I did: You’re Beautiful, half of My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho, and The Greatest Love, in which the last one was a personal favorite. When I read that Gong Hyo Jin is starring in it, I knew I had to watch it. I’ve always liked So Ji Sub…it’s a perfect trifecta. All I had to do was wait.

Here I am, 5 months later – As always, I got hooked, lined, and sank the second TGS entered in JW’s car. I’d normally wait for the second episode to know for sure it’s something I’d commit to time wise, some I watch halfway then stop – this one….I just knew I’m watching this right after my employee obligations have been met, right before my motherly duties commence…and any more spazzing moments before I go to bed.

I knew that I’m in this all the way – since I’ve logged in @ soompi almost each break I get, I finally made my 400th post and I’ve been constantly checking for new .gifs. This weekend, I will have to redownload all my softwares, and get a new dvd burner and make my own dvd that I can watch, and on my spare time at 1 or 2 in the morning, I’ll make some .gifs of my own. We’ll see how the budget stands.

For now I’m definitely addicted to anything Master’s Sun, and shipping the leads to become a real life couple.
