omg it's amazing to see a rm blog still up and running! what are your thoughts on how rm has shifted throughout the years from the departure of gary to the addition of somin and sechan?
hi!!! there’s plenty of blogs still up and running!! (pun intended lol) I guess I took a long ass break (for grad school lol) but I’m back (sort of… adult life doesnt exactly let me blog regularly)
THANK YOU for sticking around <3
Honestly, HONESTLY, let’s talk about this-
Gary leaving left me devastated and I stopped watching for a long time. There’s still plenty of moments where I’m like “Oh my god I wish I could see Gary’s reaction to this–”
BUT- he’s happy!! And he’s loving his life as a father and husband and that warms my heart more than anything. If I had to choose between him being on the show and miserable or him being off the show and happy, I would always choose the latter- a hundred times over.
Somin and Sechan are perfect for the show. When I watched their first episode I was honestly so hesitant bc I was like “wow what if this is horrible?” – And then they tricked Kwangsoo into dumping a water bomb on himself and I was like “oh lol they will fit right in.”
Somin actually fulfills a lot of my Running Man dreams that I carried for so long! Having another girl on the show is the kind of comfort I have ALWAYS wanted for Jihyo, and we finally get it in the form of Mong-Dol sisters (i would die for them fight me rn lets go). Idk if you’ve noticed, but Jihyo and Somin are always hugging each other, hanging onto each other, looking after each other, feeding each other and giggling in their own corner- even when they’re not on the same team!!! Somin is literally Jihyo’s biggest fan and always cheering her on (again, even when they’re not on the same team) and Jihyo is SUPER protective of Somin (see my previous post on how she protects her from people giving her crap). Mong-Dol is truly my biggest dream come true.
Somin and the two Ahjussis??? ICONIC. FUCKING ICONIC. I cannot believe we have been blessed with not one but two (2!!) trips of Jaesuk, Sukjin and Somin traveling to Japan and struggling with missions together. They are SO precious together. PEAK 2018 mood is Sukjin saying “Oh you’re doing so well Sominnie! I don’t know what you’re supposed to be doing, but you’re doing it well!!!”
Also. I will probably need another post altogether about Somin and Kwangsoo… how they’re always touching each other, and feeding each other and talking in the background and giggling together.
Somin and Sechan are also precious together!!! I love how no matter what they’re always in each other’s corner! Somin is always looking out for him and feeding him and Sechan is ALWAYS one of the first ones to come to her defense when someone rags on her. It melts my heart and I love them.
Sechan himself is such a gem! He fits so well with everyone and I love that he’s like a) a lil bit dumb and b) a lot bit unlucky. But one thing that he ALWAYS ALWAYS does is take care of everyone’s feelings! He’s always making sure the members are having fun and no one is getting too stressed or upset, and he does it by sacrificing his own image often times. He’s so precious and I probably need another post just for him lol bc this is getting too long.
