What about the memories that we had..
10 things I love about Rui
1. The hilarious way he says Makinos name: either he does that version where he tips his head, comes real close and says ”Ma-ki-no” OR he just uses it like he’s in a frickin’ horror movie and calls her “Maaaakino”.
2. The adorable way he says “Nande?” when he wants…
As Makino says, “Everybody’s doing it…” apparently in the hallway and in cabins that are way too close to each other (for my tastes at least) all at the same time.
Thanks to anon even though they didn’t ask… but HYD can be quite ridiculous at times and just make me laugh oh hohohohooho but isn’t loving something because of the ridiculousness what being a fan is all about? :]
it’s weird how your lips met when both of you fell… we’re not in a manga, you know.
If you ask me, Sojirou and Akira made this scene even more funny than it already is!
Look at Akira ‘crying’ in the background LOL
At this time, the company has decided not to answer any more questions with the public about the series. We will be arranging interviews with media outlets to make sure that the correct information about the series is getting out to fans. The amount of racist comments, venom, and negativity aimed at our cast, crew and production staff has been harmful and hurtful for no reason and most of it has no basis that was grounded in fact. We understand that the fans are concerned about the series being made but we stand by our earlier comments that the series is being produced by fans and will be done correctly. There has been no trust given to us, no understanding of what we are trying to do or the task that we are trying to achieve. We hope that you understand our need to protect the people that are working day and night to make sure this series is created and created correctly. We thank you for your support.
Is this what Makino would do though she’d fight back.
But seriously, (RANT ENSUES YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED) going through the hyd-related tags on tumblr is just one long continuous episode of smh reading how they are remaking the Korean drama and how you can’t “transplant” Asian culture to the U.S.
Remake of the K-drama? That’s not true, but let’s just say that it is, because guess what guys, you have successfully railed against the U.S. remake for remaking an adaptation of an earlier source material, or as some people may refer to it, A REMAKE.
Secondly, the comments on the “Asian culture” element, that you can’t translate it to U.S. culture. Which is not only laughable because the entertainment industry has been doing this BACK AND FORTH for YEARS so as if they would stop now, it is also disrespectful of and ignorant to all Asian cultureSSSSSS. Because Asia is not a magical cohesive land with one monolithic “Asian culture.” When Meteor Garden adapted Hana Yori Dango, they had to change Japanese cultural elements to Taiwanese, or else it wouldn’t make sense, just like (GET READY FOR THIS GUYS, YOU WON’T BELIEVE IT!!) the Korean Boys Over Flowers had to change the Japanese culture to Korean. Point is, even though these were “Asian versions” they still had to make their changes for it to make sense in a cultural context. When the Korean version started making kimchi and the tea ceremony became ceramic arts instead, nobody gave two shits. But when the U.S. is adapting it to fit their culture, the exact same thing the other productions have done for their respective versions, BACK THE FUCK UP BECAUSE THIS IS BLASPHEMY!!
I am not saying the U.S. remake will be without faults (srsly, y that new title, yo). And it is completely your prerogative to hate on the show without having seen a single clip, but then that makes me wonder about the (im)maturity level of these fans and most of all, their age. I remember being younger and thinking and writing like this too, but I realized reality just doesn’t work that way and until you see the final product, I don’t think you can really make an informed opinion without sounding whiny and close-minded.
I, for one, am looking forward to it. I either expect to be pleasantly surprised or lol all day long while rme and smh. I’d rather laugh at some quality hyd crack than spend my time fuming and hating on something I have absolutely no control over.
