Searching for Home: Chapter 25

Chelle and Nikki

Brianna had tried to figure out if Taylor was simply trying to amuse them or if he was serious with his questions. After a little while though, she had realized that he was, indeed, completely clueless about the whole story of a princess, and how she had fallen in love with a poor boy from a village and was forbidden to see him again.

Cheo Yong

I’ve finished watching the ghost hunting drama Cheo Yong. I think the drama was so-so. Watch it if you have time.

I was watching episode 6 in the middle of the night. The opening scared me half to death :)

Dear My Sister (2011)

Episode 72 is out!
5 years have passed and Yeongmisa is doing very well. Yeongpyo is on business trip to Seoul, and while there meet up with Bokhui. Deokcheon Winery isn’t doing well, Malgu has (another) plan on how to save it. Jeomnye doesn’t spoil Yeongdeok at all. :)

At first, when I saw the I announcement I thought, “Maybe it’s an old thread.” I had to double check the date. Sadly it wasn’t. I wish it was April 1st.

And I happened to be the last one. :(

Woke up around 10:45 a.m. and the site’s in “Debug mode/Site currently offline for maintainence.”
Word from @D_Addicts (Ruroshin/Admin): Forum going offline for maintenance.

Forum down approx. 15 hours.

Word circulate on Twitter that CJ Entertainment America has shut down D-Addicts.

Quoting Edohiguma from Jdorama
Those are just removal requests, including asking Google to remove D-Addicts from the search. Besides, CJ Entertainment has been doing this for weeks.
What we saw was the server not loading, then the MySQL database being gone and now it’s all down. My guess is something got fried big time. Repairing can take a while (especially over the weekend), and usually you wait for any news on that before switching hosts. I’m convinced D-Addicts will come back, it may just take a while.

Forum down approx. 8 hours.

The message at the end of last episode.


ZeldAx and occultangle suggested the following meanings.
“And I’m sure you won’t eat a red apple on the eve of the new century.”

I notice that they use the English word “Eve”, which yes, could be eve such as “New Year’s Eve”, but it could also be the name Eve. Which might make more sense considering the apple, as in the biblical story, where the forbidden fruit is often depicted as an apple. The word they use for century, “seiki” is often used in a figurative way to refer to an “age” or “era.” So this sentence might mean something like, “I bet Eve of the new age won’t eat the forbidden fruit.”
