Thread 5: JDY and KSH before/during TTON. I will now flesh out and establish the relationship dynamics between #JangDongYoon and #KimSoHyun before and during #TheTaleofNokdu. First, I wish to remain on what our #DongJeonCouple have always insisted in their interviews:
that the two have a close sibling relationship especially before TTON. Besides, the whole production team has also labeled their relationship as such. I believe this sibling relationship also went on until the earlier part of TTON as this was evident on many occasions
in the BTS videos when the two would actually tease and bicker each other. (I think there was a time when KSH called JDY stupid in one of the BTS. So close! lol) And all the casts especially JDY, KSH and KTO have said that they met many times before TTON started shooting
which meant more time for the casts to bond, get to know, and be comfortable with each other. Hence, you have JDY and KSH especially telling each other that they are already pretty close. And this is how they are before TTON.
Second, this closeness bet JDY and KSH that was formed before TTON extends to KTO. I think this is expected because the three are in charge of TTON’s romance struggle so they have to meet and discuss and rehearse the script with the PD’s and writers. JDY, KSH, and KTO have also
opened up about them meeting together privately to talk and bond with each other. With this, I’ll take advantage of the trio’ supposed closeness because it provides a clear comparison between JDY and KTO’s actions when around KSH and vice versa.
Of course, my focus is to get to the bottom of JDY and KSH’s relationship. Please try to take note also of how I described JDY and KSH in my previous threads.
Now, I’ll be fleshing out how JDY and KSH’s relationship fare during TTON. But let me tell you beforehand (and I’ll be bold in my statement) that the true captain of this #macaroncouple #dongjeoncouple ship is Sso. Yep, it has always been Sso. And what I mean by this is it's Sso
who ultimately decides whether this ship sinks or sails. My assertions about this will be revealed later. Anyway (and again) JDY and KSH are already close before shooting TTON such that they boast of their sibling chemistry. This is actually important because we can then shift
our attention to how this close sibling relationship CHANGED as TTON progressed. If we’re to be nonchalant about it, the close sibling relationship might have actually pervaded until the end of TTON. . But a closer look at all the BTS and interview videos during TTON suggests
that their relationship had developed and, therefore, had changed. In the earlier parts of TTON, we can see the excellent sibling chemistry bet JDY and KSH on and off cam. We can see the energizer JDY, the upset Sso about JDY Noksun being prettier than her, the real bickering and
teasing bet them, the show-off JDY about him looking out for Sso, and the cool Sso in all of JDY’s antics. It’s important to notice how somewhat aggressive JDY is in his interactions with Sso. I’ve seen some BTS videos of JDY with his previous co-stars and he’s actually displayed
the same behavior. But what’s intriguing with his aggressiveness with Sso is that it’s often deliberate, as if done with the purpose of getting Sso excited or throwing off Sso’s composure. In other words, he enjoys making a mess and messing w/ Sso probably because he likes Sso’s
raw and pure reactions and expressions (the super obvious staring implies interest to someone's reactions or behavior). And what’s more intriguing is that Sso somehow allowed JDY to access this intense side of her of which her other co-stars did not get into. And I’m telling you
that JDY knows this and he’s confident. He knows that he had achieved such phenomenal feat in his relationship with Sso that is why he felt so secure w/ their relationship. The competitive JDY probably felt so proud and got ahead by himself by thinking he was a “different” and
a “special” co-star to Sso. Then bam! We have Sso who has not openly singled out JDY to shower him with words of affection, who does not bother to favor JDY’s character as Nokdu, who never openly admitted that Dongju likes/sees Nokdu as a special love interest.
We can now see JDY’s selfishness with Sso in full light: it has always been him and his obsession trying to gain Sso’s acknowledgement that he’s not just one of her other co-stars. JDY does NOT want to become just another co-star that Sso worked with; JDY seriously wants Sso
to treat him as someone “special” and “different”, separate from Sso’s previous co-stars BECAUSE he knows Sso is different when she's with him. In other words, JDY too want Sso to be fond of him as much as he was fond of her. In JDY's heart, he is already convinced that Sso

THREAD 6: #JangDongYoon and #KimSoHyun after TTON. We have now finally arrived at this point. Allow me then by saying that a lot has changed for both JDY and KSH and their relationship. First, JDY and KSH must have realized already at the time TTON ended that they cannot go back
to their “close sibling” relationship. They just can’t. They may hide under or force that “sibling” label but both JDY and KSH are aware they cannot treat each other as siblings anymore after they’ve allowed themselves to truly feel and experience how to be each other’s love.
If you’re quick to catch on, you probably already have sensed something strange in the wedding BTS. In the wedding BTS, the sibling chemistry bet JDY and KSH somehow fizzled out. You can still see JDY showing his affection by proclaiming how pretty KSH is and you can still see

PART 3 of Thread 5 [#JangDongYoon and #KimSoHyun before/during TTON]. At the very start, I have always maintained my position that JDY and KSH’s relationship is that of a close sibling. And I have a good reason for this: I believe that this close sibling relationship
was formed SPONTANEOUSLY when JDY and Sso met each other. The two were just so naturally compatible that they were able to show and express their true selves when they were with each other w/out the usual restraint reserved for strangers or acquaintances meeting for sometime (Sso
did mention in an interview that they became close because of their personalities). TBH, the degree of closeness is no joke considering the short amount of time before TTON’s first script reading (interviews did tell that they were already close before TTON started shooting

PART 2 of Thread 5 [#JangDongYoon and #KimSoHyun before/during TTON]. In JDY’s heart, he is already convinced that Sso feels the same way and is not oblivious to his feelings. The catch? Sso is never the type to overemphasize what she truly feels about her fellow actors.
When she openly gives compliments to or comments about her co-stars, she does this on needs basis and in good taste (What I mean here is she understands what her audience wants to hear. And she takes advantage of this. As a result, she can give either a fanservice reply
or a more wholesome response. E.g. In JEJ radio interview, Sso replied “saranghae” to a sender which shocked JDY. He probably didn’t expect KSH to say those words so casually. In another interview, she was asked whether she and JDY are close in real life. She answered that the

Thread 4. Deconstructing #KimSoHyun. In JDY's words, KSH is his "best co-star" that anyone "can't help but like." This is a testament of Sso's superb talent, work professionalism, and JDY's personal admiration of Sso being a “strongly driven” actress. In fact, anyone who has been
a serious fan of Sso need not know JDY’s words because that’s just who Kim So Hyun is. Even KSH acknowledged this side of her to a point she referred to herself as a WORKAHOLIC. You can check the 1st radio interview by JEJ where Sso recommends the song Workaholic by Bolbbalgan4.
What’s interesting here is JDY’s surprised reaction: JDY opening his mouth and nodding as if it was his first time to know this side of Sso. And he should be surprised. I mean, Sso is still 21 and she just openly declares she loves working and feels refreshed (or healed)

Thread 3. Deconstructing #JangDongYoon. I'll stick with Sso's own words that he was "a great energizer." I mean anyone who has been obsessing on him can see that. 🤣 He is just so lively on and off cam that his energy is infectious. But I'll add that JDY is also smart, quirky,
softhearted, and a little mischievous. You can search the TTON BTS and interviews and see for yourself how he interacts with others (including animals). And here's the fun part: that man is super COMPETITIVE esp w/ attention. He himself said that he wants getting attention when
he was interviewed along w/ Sso, KTO, and the King. But a deeper look at his competitiveness can be seen at KSH and JDY's 2nd radio interview w/ JEJ. In that interview, Sso casually mentioned Shin Jae Ha and proposed that the 4 of them could meet up sometime (btw, SJH is a

Thread 2. I'll proceed by revealing an important trait that both #KimSoHyun and #JangDongYoon have. What I really love about our #Dongjeoncouple is that they have a writer's heart. Their past interviews tell so. And it shows because they are well-spoken and have a way with words.
AND THIS IS IMPORTANT. I'm a writer myself (which is why I really adore KSH and JDY. I consider them my spiritual companions lol) and words that come out of a writer either by hand or mouth represent an idea that they mean to say. In short, THEY MEAN WHAT THEY SAY AND THEIR
CHOICE OF WORDS READILY REFLECT WHAT'S ON THEIR MIND. This is an excellent hint in deconstructing KSH and JDY with all their interviews recorded. I might break some hearts out there later (caution!) but hear me out. I'll tell you by now that I've only come up with two possible
