Hongki & Mina – Ep15 BTS Hearts on sleeves

16 Jul

I thought with the end of ep15 it would be the last I’m writing about HongMina but there was so much gold in the ‘making of’ clips I had to make another post.

This is the last part of ep14’s BTS but the ‘feel’ fits that of ep15. Despite herself Mina can’t stop her tears at the goodbye announcement and Hongki comforts her with a hug after wiping her tears. Even as they leave the place of filming they walked with arms around each other. Continue reading

Hongki & Mina – Me to You

13 Jul

A special post recording their words to each other in the last episode, words that carry the weight of their memories, their thanks, their love.

Hongki & Mina – Ep15 Goodbye, and Hello

13 Jul


The distance between the head and the heart is too long. Indeed, I know it’s only a show that lasts all of 15 episodes but still my tears flow freely when I see Hongki and Mina pour their heart to each other and for each other till the last minute. Continue reading

Hongki & Mina – Memories ep14

6 Jul

This is an episode where Hongki and Mina makes new memories while they relive old ones, not knowing that this is their last chance to do so as husband and wife on WGM. Sure, they and we all know it will come to an end eventually but when you put your heart into something, on someone, it’s never easy to walk away. This is an episode to be watched and felt and I find myself at a loss for words despite capping tons. So let’s walk with them one last time before they say goodbye next week.

Don’t forget, don’t forget. The audience is fickle and will surely move on in time but don’t forget this person who once came into your life and made a difference. Continue reading

Hongki & Mina – Ep13 The Date

30 Jun

The no-idea-what-they-are doing at home day ends with Hongki painting Mina’s nails and she reciprocating with giving him a shave. Although Hongki seems to be someone who’s very upfront about both his thoughts/feelings and even looks, is it really ok for him as an idol to be on tv looking so haggard, manager-san?? I can’t help but wonder every time I see his make-up-less face!


But Hongki says he was happy when Mina gave him the shave and he had fun so I guess all is good! Continue reading

Hongki & Mina – ep12 The Work

23 Jun


It’s all good to have special times and private times together like Hongki and Mina did with the wedding ceremony and honeymoon but ultimately we come back to a reality where there are other obligations and Mina gets a glimpse of Hongki’s reality in ep12. To be frank, there were entertaining laugh-out-loud moments in ep12 but overall I wasn’t that touched? Might be due to the smog that’s giving me a killer headache or it could be the lack of narrative in the edited version aired by MBC. Their hearts were still plain as day to see but there’s a lack of content in what graced our screens. Continue reading

Hongki & Mina – Ep11 The Honeymoon pt3

15 Jun

Unlike on regular WGM where a couple’s ‘tenor’ is dependent on their popularity and schedules, Global WGM has a fixed run of 15 episodes, which means Hongki and Mina are able to see the finishing line right from the start.  As their feelings for each other grow and they find greater happiness around each other, paradoxically a greater sense of sadness permeates their ‘black room interviews’ as they edge closer and closer to the end.


有玩乐,有欢笑,有争吵,有难过。但在这之中有了理解,所以真的很幸福~ Continue reading

Hongki & Mina – Ep10 The Honeymoon pt2

8 Jun

Real life commitments took my attention off fangirly stuff this week and I amazingly did not check out baidu’s Rainbow couple forum even once so I dove right into this week’s completely subbed episode without any inkling as to what might come … and the emotions got me right in the gut again. I cried bucket loads the last couple of Adam couple episodes but with Khap Kwon around, Adam is almost always full of fun and laughs. Hongki and Mina though brings a whole different set of feels to the table and I experienced both sweetness and sadness in recent episodes as they begin to get to know the real Hongki and Mina after the initial highs of the wedding event. 患得患失之间时而甜蜜、时而羞涩、时而彷徨、时而懊恼,我这个观众看着也感觉心情在做过山车。 Continue reading

Hongki & Mina – Ep9 The Honeymoon

2 Jun

With Adam behind me, I confidently said that I was gonna be rational about this couple and enjoy them simply as weekend entertainment and for a while it was. But dang it MBC! This WGM blackhole has claimed me as a victim again as Hongki & Mina draws me in deeper with their sweetness and sincerity with every new episode. I find myself spending more and more time on forums reading posts micro-analysing each WGM episode and once again the line between fantasy and reality starts to blur. I start to interpret each glance, each touch as reflection of real affection growing between these two real people and sometimes ‘happy’ episodes/events end up bittersweet for me when I put my own spin on things! Or is that the entire point of WGM? To get as many fans as this big room for imagination can fit. 曾经于亚当我有了这样的领悟,对于彩虹我理性的那面有同样的认知,但心还是被他们牵引着,忍不住心疼夫人、忍不住想要他们成为彼此的幸福。李红鸡你要对夫人好一点啦~~~不要明明有粉红我却每次看得要落泪。是怎样啦。

Anyway, onto the honeymoon episode which while short, is packed with all sorts of skinship that got me squeeing like mad. If I were to include all scenes that I like I’d have to cap the entire episode so just some highlights here.

Hongki & Mina – Ep8 The Wedding

26 May

Though ‘the wedding’ is a WGM couple’s big event, the global edition moves along at such lightning speed that however much I adore the Rainbow couple, there’s no sense of them achieving a milestone with a wedding like my Adam other couples. I had already jumped ahead and started anticipating Hongki and Mina’s upcoming honeymoon in Okinawa where they can have more private time but ep8 turned out really touching.

The episode starts off with FT Island Seung hyun as the ceremony’s MC and I’ve missed you! my idol with groundless confidence (go check him out in ‘Idol Maknae Rebellion (MakBanShi)’ while waiting for new episodes of WGM. It’s hilarious and Seung hyun is super adorable). After walking down the aisle, Hongki and Mina read a letter they have written to each other. This part was cut from the yt version and I haven’t seen the completed eng sub version out yet so I’m gonna post a translation using the Chinese version that’s already available. There have been some complaints on baidu about the Chinese subs but since I don’t know any Korean, I’ll have to fly with what I’ve got and I believe the general meaning shouldn’t be too far off.
