I really love this scene. The way each of their faces fall in turn as they listen to what the other has to say; how Enrique asks if he’s supposed to feel as she does (because he’s been following her closely and mimicking her: sometimes he repeats what she says and he takes social cues from her because he’s a bit of a foreigner and kind of needs her guidance to navigate Seoul; actually this makes me think of how Enrique is always in this liminal space—he’s Korean but he’s not, he’s kind of famous but kind of not, he’s persuasive, maybe even aggressive, but he’s also accommodating. And this in turn makes me think of Dok Mi’s dualities—she’s quiet but opinionated, shy and yielding but firm in the boundaries she’s set around herself, so burdened by her own issues but can easily understand others, a recluse who pulls away from society yet cares about the well being of her neighbors); how earnest they both are, not meaning to hurt each other but somehow doing that anyway; how abruptly Enrique leaves; how he agrees to the terms she’s set for their relationship.
Dok Mi wants to stop their relationship where it is, but Enrique goes one step further. He says it should be like they’d never met each other at all. I feel like Dok Mi is a person who lives more in her thoughts than in anything else, than in “the real world,” and a big part of living the way she does is in revisiting the memories she has. Memories of how she first “met” Tae Joon, memories of being bullied; she takes them and makes a life out of them. That’s why she wanted the privacy of an unrequited love, because she could enjoy it without any interruption from anyone, she could take it and shape it as she saw fit without the other person there to mess it up. And even though Enrique generally agrees to what she’s said, he’s also said that she should act like they never knew each other—like she doesn’t have any memories of him. Hmmm…so while she’s trying to hold this person at arms length he ends up going crossing into places he may not even be aware exist.
I think that last black and white gif may be when Dok Mi starts having doubts about the decisions she’s made for her life; she looks relieved but also conflicted: Is that how she wanted that conversation to end up? Is this how she wants to live?
There are more pics but this deserves its own post
I laughed so hard when I saw it… In case you don’t understand, below is a brief translation ( I don’t usually do it so it won’t be good but you get the idea )
Pic 1- (trying to push the PD) Yong: Hyung, please let me have this spot
Pic 2- ( after mission accomplished) PD: This kid…
Yong the casts react to different kisses in Heartstrings lol
Somehow it reminds me of this, which is a complete different reaction :P
Yong didn’t look too happy while watching the kisses back in YB days when everyone else were laughing… I wonder why… LOL
4 years of friendship, and something never changes~
They are precious

How Khuntoria have changed since 06/01/2010 ^^
It has to be love <3
and this too
need any more proof?
I’m totally NOT trying to start a fanwar I just want to share my point of view regarding Vic’s “authenticy” when she was with Khun, I’m not saying Vic wasn’t authentic with Kangta, she was, I just want to point some aspects I noticed in her relationship with both.
With Kangta, Victoria, politely, helps him holds the spoon when Kangta tries to feed her, she opens just a bit her mouth and she acts cool and collected while expressing how tasty the cream was; but with Khun, Victoria is just like, mouth wide open waiting for Khun to feed her, and then she ends up shaking her head happily afterwards.
Don’t get me wrong, I think Kangta and Vic relationship is good, prove of that is how confortable and relaxed Vic was during the show, she even manage to jokingly flirt with her idol because let’s face it, once a fangilr, always a fangirl. But still, I think she was more like a baby when being with Khun, you can see it in this gif, Vic wasn’t really paying attention to her idol image while eating, she just enjoyed being pampered by Khun; besides, psychologically, food has a deep meaning for Vic, she usually shows her love/care to people by cooking for them and she conforts herself when feeling down by making the dishes her mom cooked for her; for Vic, food is her source of strenght, she even said it before, “having a hometown meal can make you feel better/gain strenght” (WGM, ep. 30)
Psychoanalytically, in the first childhood, food is one of the first ways we have to communicate with the world around us, usually is the mother who provides that food and with that, it creates and determines the bond between the child and the mother which in the future will determine the way we’ll bond with other people, in the best of the cases the mom will provide the child with confort, warm and a feeling of security that the child will perceive as being loved. Vic went to Beijing dance school when she was still a child, food turned for her in something that provides her a feeling of being close to her home/mom; so, it makes sense that Vic makes “her mom dishes” when she feel sad and homesick, because it takes her back to that feeling of security and love. That’s why, sometimes, being feeded puts people in a state of vulnerability, because it is related to the inconscient aspects regarding that very first moment of being feeded, it confront us with the form that we perceive the relationship with the people surrounding us at the moment.
That’s why I just feel that this gif, shows how much, Victoria and Nichkhun, grew closer to each other; I’m sure that you remember We Got Married, ep 7, when Khun tried to feed Vic with the “Khun” chocolate, her first impulse was to try to grab the chocolate herself, that reaction makes sense, and shows how authentic she was there because they weren’t familiar back there yet; totally different attitude than in this gif, also, I think this gif, beside the closeness between Khuntoria, shows a differente level of trust and dependency towards him; in fact, the other people I’ve seen Vic being that open with, while being feeded is Luna (Koala ep.1) and Amber (WGM ep. 54); both of them her members, both of them people really close to Vic, both, people she trust and depends on.
I think i just ended up just rambling and this is by far, the longer english post I’ve ever written (and I’m not even that fluent, sorry lol) I think what i wanted to say is that I really don’t know if Khuntoria is still as close as they used to be (I hope they are) but at least I know that back there, they were real and authentic and no one can convince me otherwise.
*hate messages to my personal blog , please ^^
Well said Lils
I totally agree even I was a bit excited to see Vic again ( with her idol together and know how they interact with each other) on a show. It’s been months that we can finally see her…
But I do see the difference when Vic eat and interact with both. She doesn’t care to pretend or polite with Khun and just enjoy being pampered/ baby who she isn’t usually with f(x). With Kangta and her other ideal actor, she is and will always be a big fan girl who support and idolize them :)
In case you don’t know, Lils works as a psychologist, n yeah she is awesome ^^
Spot the difference ^^
I watched whole Paeksang award show in detail, and seriously, pretty sure the whole Yong Hwa/Shin Hye thing is the funniest incident all night; I knew I love Lee Hwi Jae for a reason.
I kept watching the part over and over again and I couldn’t figure out where he was coming from, I didn’t see anyone backstage at all, he must be surprised that they’re already announcing the winners and ran really quick back out onstage to hand the bouquet to Shin Hye haha
Then Jang Geun Suk asked for his bouquet as well and YongHwa had to sign with his hands that he doesn’t have any for him >_>
I love ANJells. They are cutest when they are with each other
And did you laugh when JGS said he wanted to work with PSH again? Because I did haha. It’s not like he only worked with her once lol. I guess it’s a pleasure to work with her but this was funny lol
Flower Boy YongHwa~ 2011 VS 2012
cr 朴信惠郑容和吧 weibo
[Insight] Look at what we found in CNBlue dorm, again
In YB bts, JGS said Shinhye looked like the dog and she was imitating it lol
And somehow Yong ended up keeping it?!?! Or did he just buy another one because it looks like her?!?! haha
In Heartstrings, Shin told GW looks like a teddy bear, but he ended up buying, keeping and even kissing it. And now we found out that in real life, Yong even have the bear in his bed... lol
Some people may spazzing ab it appears in WGM, but please remember YB happened before WGM lol. He was at the filming set and he had the YBDcut too so obviously he watched knows all these. So maybe that’s y he bought it lol
Someone please tell me that I’m delusional and I need to wake up!!!! :P
[Insight] Look what we found in CNBlue dorm
And …. Heartstrings Teddy bear is sleeping in Yonghwa’s bed
**note: Bed is the most personal place for everyone,not to mention he is a grown-up man who is wild on stage. I mean you can put anything in the living room and not care who touch it , but you don’t just put anything on your bed .” It’s the place, where one starts and ends the day”
Giving is always the best and most appreciated gift. After all, kind and generous people (Khuntoria) inspire kindness and generosity. Glad that he was touched by the gift! Khuntorians Jjang!
Thanks for your detective work and tip Guest!
Awww never forget
Look at what we spotted in Thailand when Khun Mcing with 2 members of SNSD
the more i look at them the more they look alike. even their actions are in sync. their eyes are almost identical. they also get the same kind of compliments:
in other words, they’re like twins
(no wonder his mom likes her)
i hope what old people say about look-alike cp is true lol.
My friends (Lils, Jess) and I talked about this a few times before too. Same goes to Khuntoria
You should post more often. I really like your insight about them in the nest ^^
