Well well welll….I may as well be a witch, but things r still whatthe!fishy to me with that certain drama->RL CP, just to confirm I really have no shipperblood.
While I can understand obsession with PDAs and love declarations to the world, when it comes to actors, it's a much more complicated affair. I prefer never knowing shit until they r married for their sake. I don't need to know about RL feelings to enjoy sth more than I should. There is the relentless rabid fandoms they have to deal with. Once it's announced to the public, what JHW is ranting about in his lil tweet the other day that this is 'none of anyone else's business' is what?! There is their image to cultivate with which their career is based upon, esp in Asian dramaland, until you have a very firm footing in the industry when you can make your own calls and people will pay you respect to do the heck you want, but even then, never truly whatever the heck. Are they that revered yet?! Last I checked they are 'up and coming', just got their first respectable cult hit and they chose to play their personal life under the public's scrutiny? Why add-on soo many extra sets of eyes ogling your every move in your private budding romance and make the inevitable physical separation with the upcoming in WEEKS MS even more stressful as is?!!
I don't get it.
That said, I'm happy for them if they are really in love and prioritizing it more than anything else. It is romantic, but I can't help but be worried for our Romeo and Juliet. For one thing, they are coming across as irrational and ignorant of their biz.
I'm not sure how to interpret YIN's reaction after JHW's confession even though it's truly none of my/our business. I didn't think it's a big deal, but her 'non'-reaction to it made my brows raised a little. Then both their managements refused to comment on sth very straight forward which JHW had make public at an occasion that would ascertain maximum exposure. It's almost like their managements were shoving gags over their wailing children's mouths in front of my eyes. But if they were already dating back then, how she reacted was putting her namja in a precarious position for DAYS. Both their managements were in a scramble for the PR storm hitting them. IF they started after the confession, while being hopelessly romantic, I see it as career suicide. From now on is YIN not going to be in any drama/movie involving intense feelings of her character towards her costar's? ie ACT?!! Because I don't see any reporter not asking the questions, how is it like kissing so and so as opposed to your lovely JHW? How is it romancing another guy while your own guy is away fr you in MS? EVERY public appearance from now on till eternity. So she'll be contented with her personal romance with JHW taking the spotlight from all of her work in the foreseeable future? I'm not saying people should never fall in love on set/at work, but for their career choice, what is the absolute need to be this public?! Are there not enough gossip and noise around everything else involving them not work-related already? Would they love each other less without all the world as bystanders or forced into witnesses?! I don't think so, right? Isn't your world only consists of the 2 of you when madly falling in love?! It cut down on my appreciation of their fine job in QIHM when the crew is now letting it loose chatting they were too good to NOT be real in their kisses and making outs on set. Hmmmm, aren't they actors on a job first and foremost ie that's the gist of their job description to act it out?! Are they incompetent to do so with their skills and professionalism and everyone can see it's not acting on set?!
Then there's SportsSeoul, the National Inquirer wannabe, imo, if SHK/HB's dating news was not 'leaked' by them (I still insist it's per SHK's management permission/plotting, she's been in the biz long enough to not be careful and experienced with these matters and had never been caught redhanded without her knowledge) they have a better chance to make it work, IF that's both parties' intention, that is. I see SportsSeoul as always a tool for artists' management for PR shows. I don't think Korea has the paparazzi in the true sense of the word like the rest of the world. It's all under careful manipulation, tight rein of the big management agencies, and YG is as big a deal as a formidable agency in the industry you can get. I can't help but see it as their rep striking a 'deal', reached an agreed/ 'wise' decision this is the best way to savage and make the best out of the situation with both parties walking out of it as unscathed as possible. The pics are staged. Both YIN and JHW must be retarded and mental to not suspect they would be shot if seen in public doing what they are doing in the pics. Lets face it, they are aware the cameras are exactly where, and they choose to display it. These are not some stolen snaps fr hidden camera, everything is quite well lit and they r the talk of the town CP, they can't have no idea.
I just see conflict of interests and strangest timing in things transpired to treat it as some pure lofty romantic gestures, never when managements are involved in kdramaland.
