I was talking to a friend about dramas one day, and for every actor she mentioned, I was able to spew back the year that I crushed on him. Finally, she asked, “Who did you NOT crush on?! That might be a shorter list.”
Going through my two men’s edition (here and here) turned out to be a great thing. For one, it’s always nice to walk down memory lane like that. But more importantly, at a total of 35 men, I learned that I did not swoon over as many men as I originally guessed I did. (I thought it would be more liked hundreds!) I’m a woman with standards, yo!
But now it’s my chance to “mine” these men. And you don’t understand what a difficult task this is for me because of how fickle I am. One moment I may declare that a particular actor is God’s gift to mankind, and then just a month later, I may declare that I can’t stand his acting, his voice, the way he talks, the way he walks, the way he looks… umm, you get the idea!
And so I want to make sure that the men that I officially proclaim to be MINE here today will be ones who can stand the test of time. Does he look like he has the genes for balding in the future? Are there any rumors about him that may indicate that he’ll make the headlines anytime soon for a rendez-vous with a prostitute? Does he show signs of turning 느끼해 (neukihae – the phenomenon in which men start looking sleazy as they grow older, which Korean men are particularly prone to)?
This involves exact science. You may wonder, Blue, umm, you do realize that just because you “MINE” them does not REALLY make them yours, right? Well, disillusionment is a scary thing, my friend.
So at first, I aimed to limit my men to my top 5 or so. But who am I kidding? I’m not a psychic! I can’t predict how they’ll change or how my opinion of them will change in the future. And furthermore, there may be many more gems in hiding just waiting to be discovered. Do I have to “mine” them every time a new one appears?
So yes, I decided to take the easy way out. If I’m going to be disillusioned, I may as well be disillusioned all the way, right? Thus, I hereby proclaim that all men on TV (past, present, and future) will be MINE on my command. Lest you think I’m greedy and selfish, oh, I’m far from it. In fact, you all have my permission to admire, drool, and even touch any of my men. But please. Please do not linger. Thank you!
