Two X Eunyoung (20)
G.NA (25)

The end was perfect! I'm so glad everyone hit JB and yelled at him for being an ass. Now where is Dispatch/Sports Seoul with my footage of these kids dating irl?? It's soooo obvious with Kevin's hilarious commentary on Hyungshik, and I suspect Mir and Jei are seeing each other too...

I love the new cast already! and I'm shipping Yewon and Minhyuk so hard! she even mentioned him in her interview! wtf, how does this show do this to me....

PS mods may we please have a tag for The Romantic & Idol?? ^^

Added the tag. I'll try to go back and tag the shows. LJ is being really bad right now.

I felt so bad for Seungah, she was really hurt by all of this.

I would have never expected Mir and Jei to end up together in the beginning.

And omg at all those girls side-eying G.Na even though she was not there.

that eye-roll was comedy gold imo

The end was so anticlimactic :C
Except for the part of JB choosing Seungah nothing really interesting or unpredictable happened. IDK I was disappointed by the last ep...

As for the next season I don't really know most of the cast so we'll see whether I watch it or not, I prob will to procrastinate if nothing else :3
markthatcoin 4th-Jan-2013 11:26 pm (UTC)
Did you know the cast of Season 1? I didn't and I fell in love with them all lol; I expect that will happen to me this time too!
kyrli 4th-Jan-2013 10:58 pm (UTC)
i'm waiting for mir/jei scandal pretty please ;w;
i love how she sticks so close to him during the game in the end too :"
markthatcoin 4th-Jan-2013 11:29 pm (UTC)
Personally I think they might have done something ~scandalous in the prior episode when the PD disclosed they saw a secret rendezvous between the two of them.... I'm praying Dispatch has some stuff to reveal on all these kids now tbh
taecmyheart 4th-Jan-2013 11:05 pm (UTC)
I kind of felt like JB just chose seungah bc obviously jei wasn't going to pick him. But yeah he was such a kid. -0- jun.k and hyejung are so cute ;A; I liked how he was so forward with his feelings, especially in that truth room.

For season 2, I was trying to figure out who ends up where... Yewon and minhyuk at the bridge, g.na at the stairs, jonghun in the art gallery, and N in the crowd. They didn't show the other girls, so meh. :P Does anybody know how old the girls are? I know g.na is '85 but idk the rest. I just want N to be an oppar lmao.

I correctly predicted all of the couples. XD

Yay for Jun.K and Hyejeong! They were cute throughout the season.

I felt so bad for Seungah. She was crying so hard. I loved when she and Hyejeong hit JB and called him a "bad boy". He was such a flip floppper throughout the season, but it was better than seeing four perfect couples that were certain about their feelings the entire time.

I really hope that the Season 2 cast doesn't have a "fate couple" from the start, as it limits the interactions between the idols.
markthatcoin 4th-Jan-2013 11:34 pm (UTC)
I thought it was really funny when Hyungshik said something along the lines of "if you meet someone, it's fate!" lmao. I agree that I hope they all get to date everyone this time! Except after the preview I am shipping Minhyuk and Yewon lolol

WHY THE FUCK AM I AT WORK AND NOT IN THE PRIVACY OF MY OWN HOME SO I CAN WATCH THIS AND WEEP?!
markthatcoin 4th-Jan-2013 11:23 pm (UTC)
I'm so sorry bb but if it's any consolation we all wish you were at home watching it too! You'll love it when you see it ^^
cmyesaito 4th-Jan-2013 11:25 pm (UTC)
I didn't watch the first season but I'm looking forward to the next one since there are idols that I like
I have this image of Jonghun that he is such a womanizer... maybe because in mnet scandal he was so straight forward... kissing the girl in their first date lol (if I remember right)

markthatcoin 4th-Jan-2013 11:31 pm (UTC)
I feel that way about him too! It's so weird lol. Did you watch the preview? He said he's dated a few celebrities, I didn't know that
confuqued 5th-Jan-2013 12:19 am (UTC)
Season one's last episode was pissing me off, but then I saw the preview for Season two & my heart's all warm and fuzzy.
However this scripted ass show got me in my feelings.

Seungah & JB, was so wrong. There is no way JB wants to be a couple with Seungah, & I know Seungah is not that naive to think JB wants to be a couple with her. It seems like the idols were forced to pick someone and not picking was not an option. I honestly hate how this show made the both of them look.

The only couple I'm really satisfied with is Mir & Jei. They seemed legit for the show, it would be nice if they were actually dating.

Jihyun & Hyungshik I don't buy 100% because you can tell Jihyun is guarded. I don't know if she's guarded because it's just a show or if she's scared of really falling for him. They do make a really attractive couple and Hyungshik is a great guy.

Jun.K & Hyejung were really cute together too, but I don't like it. Hyejung is too young for it to work with someone who is clearly experienced in dating. She said it herself that she felt burdened. Also explains why she initially kept going for Mir, because he wasn't serious and thus safe. I'm thinking and hoping Jun.K is aware that they would not work either.

Season 2 needs to happen ASAP.
Jonghun mentioned Yewon, & Yewon mentioned Minhyuk. So those couples BETTER happen. If it doesn't I'm gonna be pissed. That's all I have to say about season 2 right now.

i thought JB would be expecting a handshake and tbh that's what i thought Seungah would give him. she just had a ton of pent up feelings. i'm ok with it being scripted to make JB choose her though; tbh it might not have been scripted because imo it was pretty obvious who was choosing whom, except for JB/Seungah.

i think Jihyun was slowly growing to like Hyungshik genuinely. it's hard because it's 2 months for us but 4 days for them! i hope they continue to date to see if they actually match each other irl

i don't expect Jun.K and Hyejeong actually dated after the show. they were really really cute together but only for the duration of the show, i would say

i want a Mir/Jei dating exposé from Dispatch asap

and i am shipping Yewon and Minhyuk really hard, it looks like they have a first meeting together!
modestgoddess79 5th-Jan-2013 12:46 am (UTC)
this show made me cry~

OMG JB finally decided to stop being a total to perfect Seungah
Mir was so emotional and cute at the end
Jun. K and his mega hug.
Jihyun/Hyungshik forever!
markthatcoin 5th-Jan-2013 01:07 am (UTC)
when Mir got emotional when Jei finally hugged him i was like OMG I LOVE YOU GUYS and mega teared up. it was so cute. are;jijwfea. i can't believe people don't like Mir!
purekpopology 5th-Jan-2013 02:12 am (UTC)
CAN'T WAIT TO WATCH THIS! Will be back to comment on it after I finish =D!!!
markthatcoin 5th-Jan-2013 05:18 am (UTC)
gurl where you at did you finish yet or what????
jaghatar 5th-Jan-2013 02:37 am (UTC)
JB good move!! the poor guy got a lot of hate this season even if he desrved it a little
kelseyum 5th-Jan-2013 02:57 am (UTC)
EEEEEEEE ALL I DID WAS SQUEAL DURING HYEJUNG/JUNSU'S PARTS!!! seriously, its crazy how quickly i shipped the two after their first date. out of all of them, i really hope those 2 continue to date. he'd be such a good boyfriend for her, especially if she's inexperienced in dating.

OHMYGOD SEUNGAAAAH!! i was dreading the moment the boys were supposed to leave, i didnt want to see her alone. and the way she acted cool and then kept her head down so she wouldnt have to see them leave, broke my heart. BUT JB YOU ASS! STOP GIVING HER HOPE!! i feel like regardless of what he says, he picked her because he didnt want to get rejected by jei and seem like a total douche to seungah. although this did redeem him a bit in my eyes, because he really considered her feelings and how horrible she'd feel if she was left alone.. her crying over being picked was so sad. they should all be so lucky to be able to pick her!! but the fact that now she thinks he really does like her is just going to make it even worse when he is a dick again to her afterwards. i was hoping she'd reject him, but she just seems to want to find love so badly that she'll put up with his crap. HE BETTER BE NICE TO HER AFTER THIS!!!

ohhh jesus, mir and jei give me warm fuzzies. i love seeing mir all shy and nervous and lovestruck like this. its nice to see what a good girl can do to him.

and just as i was thinking i was going to skip hyungshik/jihyun because they are so boring and predictable, he runs to her and makes me all giggly.. but why was she standing with her leg like that?..and my exact words when she hugged him, "hug her back, you weirdo".. they are so awkward together lol. feels a little scripted to me at some parts.


i really cant wait for the next season. i have really no idea how the pairings are going to go, i seriously cant picture any of them together. itll be interesting to see yewon on here, because shes got such a pathetic image on other variety shows. i hope the boys dont prejudge her for that.
i think i want jonghoon and g.na together, because i really like theyd have crazy skinship lol. and lmaaaao, i want to see yewon when she knows BTOB's minhyuk is on the show. if thats her first date, ill die lol.
that eunyoung (?) girl is super pretty!!
and jonghoon is sooo gorgeous. ive always thought that as a group average, ft island had the best looking members.
markthatcoin 5th-Jan-2013 03:10 am (UTC)
i was sooo emotional when mir got emotional, it was ridiculous. i love him with all my heart now! it's so sad to me that omonazens don't like him :(

ya i was going to skip jihyun/hyungshik too lmao. that run was adorable and her chiding him for taking so long despite having long legs. i legit loled when she said she expected his coat. i loveddd the cardigan montage from the other episode! they are hella awk together but i think it's because SHE'S awk. it's hard to keep in perspective that they've known each other four days

i can't wait until the next season! i couldn't picture any of the first season people together LEAST OF ALL MIR AND JEI but look what happened!!!!!

ya tbh i was all prepped to dislike yewon and then i LOVED her! i think she's my "seungah" this time. awesome girl, deserves awesome boy. i'll die if she and minhyuk fall for each other.

oh and do you recall those shirtless pics of jonghoon? i've never been the biggest fan of his face but omg that bod.

We all know what a great girl Seungah is but I feel a tad bit sorry for JB as well. HAh. I feel sorry that he was put in this situation in the first place. You can so totally read his inexperience and naivity through his interviews and he was definitely not prepared to take care of a girl, more or less a few girls. I think he puts little thought in his choices even when he decided to only go for Jei, which can be interpreted as manly for some, he didn't really think about the premise of the show and what that would mean.

Although I'm glad he chose Seungah, I think I would be even more heartbroken if no one stayed for her. I mean for the first time, JB gave more thought on this decision than any other that he's made on the show. So, good on you boy. While watching him has been frustrating halfway through the show, I think it makes it more real. Coz sometimes you really just. don't. know. what to do and that makes you make bad decisions. But, that's how we learn!

markthatcoin 5th-Jan-2013 03:55 am (UTC)
yes, your whole second paragraph!!! i totally agree. he was actually considerate of someone else's feelings for the first time, you can pretty much watch him grow over the course of the show. i hope in the end he treats all people a little more respectfully.
karatefeelings 5th-Jan-2013 04:28 am (UTC)
AWWW I just finished watching the first season!!! It was a thrilling series, like watching a good drama series featuring young people on friendship and love, that kinda feeling. Haha.

Excited for the new season! The first meetings always makes me smile and cover my eyes at the same time. I don't know how it'll be like as this set of casts are coming in with different expectations than the previous casts who's like fresh and unknowing.
markthatcoin 5th-Jan-2013 05:09 am (UTC)
omg during the first meeting thing the boys weren't NEARLY as entertaining as season 1 but i still will be watching with my mouth/grin covered with my hands!!!!

i'm not sure they're coming in with different expectations... like, they all know someone who was on the show, but what advice can you really give? when you're "in the moment" your true awkwardness shines imo. lol.
zombiechick815 5th-Jan-2013 05:19 am (UTC)
Overall I'm happy how Season 1 ended. I think it's cute that Hyunshik and JiHyun sound like they are still meeting up. TBH though the only couple that I really bought into a believed was Mir and Jea. They seemed so~~~ into each other which was really shocking to me! I wish Jun.K and Hyejung worked out, but Hyejung didn't really seem that into Jun.K. Maybe she's just slow at showing her feelings though?

I'm looking forward to the next season and I LOVE that it's starting up immediately so we don't have to wait. I don't really know any of the idols for season 2, but I'm looking forward to getting to know them ^^
purekpopology 5th-Jan-2013 06:46 am (UTC)
Finally watched this! Okay so the finale was super cute. I love how JunK is so open with skinship so his hugs with Hyejung are REAL hugs, not awkward.

I HATE that Seungah accepted JB. I would have shook his hand so hard his arm came off. He basically chose her either because they made him, OR as he said he thought about the possibilities and realized he had no chance with Jei. Seungah was obviously the back up choice, and she should have rejected him!!

Mir and Jei are adorable, I think he seriously likes her. His personality definitely changed some since he started liking her.

Hyungshik/Jihyun eh boringish? Glad to hear they're still talking though.

Looking forward to the new season. The guy from FT Island and BtoB are cute. I like Yewon from Jewelry too. She seems like a fun straightforward girl. It's too early to pick favs/pairings yet though.

buttrflykis31 5th-Jan-2013 06:56 am (UTC)
I was so expecting Seungah to shake his hand too! I was rooting for it, but part of me wanted him to pick her too, since I felt so bad for her the entire time!

It was really sad how they edited it to show her crying so much over him before and then again during the final choice...

I'm just glad someone chose her~ I would've cried if no one picked her, even if it seemed forced and like he just didn't want to be alone =P
buttrflykis31 5th-Jan-2013 06:51 am (UTC)
Anyone know what song played during Seungah's part? I'm having a brain fart and can't remember the name or artist >_<

I honestly didn't expect all of them to become couples... I would have rolled over and died if Hyungshik and Jihyun didn't get together though haha

And I loved how they used Sunao ni Narenakute as the scene for the meeting spot for the next season~ I love that drama and am rewatching it for the third time right now too! ^_^
markthatcoin 5th-Jan-2013 07:07 am (UTC)
Coldplay "The Scientist" ^^

i figured they would at least pair up but i thought everyone would become a couple except seungah/jb. kinda bummed she didnt handshake him but she had a lot of emotions at the time...
sergel02 5th-Jan-2013 09:24 am (UTC)
Gah loved this show. I really liked their interactions as a group, it was really fun. Loved how Hyejeong punched JB. I think her and SeungA are gonna be good friends lol. She's certainly on my radar now.

I can understand what SeungA is feeling and probably would react the same way.

I love Jihyun's shyness and could stop smiling when Hyungshik ran to her.

Excited to see Yewon, G.na, Minhyuk, Kevin, and the rest i actually like.
markthatcoin 5th-Jan-2013 11:55 pm (UTC)
She's certainly on my radar now.
that's how i feel about most of these groups, i was pretty unaware of them (even if i had a cursory memory of their music) but now i'm following them all. i definitely didn't know much about AOA; hyejeong is bubbly and incredibly photogenic, she's in the FT Island mv that's used in the intro to season 2!

excited for season 2 ^^
tngarden 5th-Jan-2013 06:03 pm (UTC)
I'm too attached to this for my own good :/

But it was sooooo good and now, another season? Yeah! I can't wait to see everything unfold.... With Yewon in season 2 I can't wait to laugh and laugh and laugh and be torn up all over these couples again :)

By the way, would anyone be able to help me place a title to the musical piece in part 3 around 0:45 where Mir thanks Jei for his new image? And it gets played again in the season 2 preview... It's the meeting on the bridge at sunset first meeting scene.... I would appreciate if anyone could help me because I love this song but I can't seem to remember its name.....
markthatcoin 5th-Jan-2013 07:19 pm (UTC)
i don't know the song myself but this person compiled a lot of the music used on the show so it might be in their list??

and yes i'm so ultra addicted to this show it is UNHEALTHY
the_erotomanic 6th-Jan-2013 12:43 am (UTC)
people here should watch the non-idol version of this show. some women fared worse than seungah. they're usually the oldest women, too. and the guys really only pursued the woman they liked. 2/3 guys liked the same girl.

but i guess that sand in the cup (bottle?) that jb left behind was a foreshadowing. acceptance that he had no chance with jei and should move on?
