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.
