…and he got hitched in the most unexpected way.

After years of having marriage rumors once every quarter, Rain and Kim Tae Hee finally got married.

You’d think I’d be depressed about it. Nope. :smile: In fact, once I learned about the confirmed marriage announcement, I found myself screaming, “FINALLY!” :clap: I guess the wedding-rumors-once-every-quarter had prepared me for the inevitable. I finally have closure from THAT era in my life when I was once a delusional shipper of a loveteam.

Hey, not that I’m regretting that era. For one thing, said era led to the birth of my monicker AGENT P and this blog being famous – or infamous, depending on which side are you on – in the Rain fandom. (In the Alden fandom, too, albeit for entirely different reasons.) It is also from that era where I learned the hard way never to get too personal when you ship a showbiz tandem. It will hurt like hell if your ship ends up sinking. :neutral:

Anyway, I’m just happy that the wedding was held in Church rites instead of something secular. Not that there’s anything wrong with that; it’s just that I am Catholic and I’m happy to see someone who used to declare that he doesn’t believe in God having one of the most important milestones in his life in the presence of God. For that alone, I thank Kim Tae Hee. :smile:

Congratulations and best wishes to the newly wedded couple!

Warning: There’s a quite a bit of #DelusionalAgentP in here.

In the midst of rushing to meet my work deadlines, ignoring my niece who’s doing a marathon of Descendants of the Sun in the same room, and eating a bowl of lugaw with the works (tokwa, baboy, lumpia at itlog), I had some random thoughts. I don’t know why those random thoughts just popped in my head while I was busy carving meat off a pig’s cheeks, but they just did.

1. Rain trying to hide while dating his publicly-known girlfriend vs. Song Hye Kyo proudly posting photos of her friendly gatherings with people like Yoo Ah In and Song Joong Ki on her own Instagram only cements our past suspicions that it was Rain who didn’t want to reveal his real relationship with Hye Kyo to the public. He’s still hiding, and she is not. Yes, I still believe that they were in a relationship. Remember which blog you are in.

2. Hye Kyo has been open about meeting up with the guys she works or worked with, but can anyone recall if she had at least openly talked about her personal relationship with Hyun Bin before? :think: Because right now, I don’t remember anything of that sort. This also cements my belief that H2 wasn’t – isn’t – real. She never hid her relationship with Lee Byung Hun in the past, didn’t she?

3. Someone might point out that Hye Kyo also hid relationship (whatever it was) with Rain, therefore, BiKyo wasn’t real, neither. My response to that is: See (1). Also, she eventually revealed through interviews that she met up with Rain from time to time. She never had that sort of thing with Hyun Bin.

4. I haven’t really watched DoTS yet because I’m already late with my reports (to those people who tell me to ditch my reports in favor of DoTS: how about YOU finish my reports for me so that I can watch DoTS? :nono: Wag kayong ano). From what I’ve seen, so far, I seem to be more drawn towards Jin Goo instead of Song Joong Ki. As I’ve said before, I find SJK to be too pretty for my tastes.

5. For some reason, whenever Song Joong Ki smirks or does something cute on DoTS, I see Alden, the Kalyeserye character. It’s either I can see that Alden Richards is capable of portraying SJK’s DoTS character, or a sign that I have overdosed on Alden that I see him in almost everything.

This has got to be the randomest Random Thoughts entry, ever.

Timeline:

1. Tuesday, January 12. It was revealed on Twitter that guy and girl had a photoshoot together the day before for a popular magazine.

2. Saturday, January 16. They celebrated their 6th Monthsary on the show. Guy kept repeating the phrase, ‘seryoso ako’ (I’m serious) to the girl, coupled with a borderline terrifying serious look on his face.

3. Sunday, January 17. They filmed their latest TVC for McDonald’s. (I don’t know how this is relevant to the timeline, but who knows?)

4. The days following the 6th Monthsary, there was a noticeable change in both guy and girl. They looked extremely happy. The guy, in particular, was overly-hyperactive despite lack of sleep, and I personally witnessed this on January 19 (I waited for him at the artist’s entrance of the studio and witnessed him literally leaping from the stairs to his car). Meanwhile, the girl who used to hide her ‘kilig’ by doing her usual facial contortions is now openly staring at guy with a very loving look on her eyes. Also, they have become gutsier and didn’t hesitate to show physical intimacy towards each other both on-cam and off-. The things they did – from smelling armpits, sharing food that the other person already bit on, to things like this:

…are things that normal “friends” of the opposite sex would never do.

Also, I personally noticed from the guy that he never flinches nor feels awkward whenever he’s asked about topics related to weddings and marriage proposals. He was more tensed when he was asked weeks ago if he and girl are already ‘on’.

5. Yesterday, the magazine where they had their photoshoot last January 11 released the issue and they to have said these on their respective interviews:

alden-cosmo
maine-cosmo

For the benefit of my non-Pinoy readers and those who cannot read the screengrabs: basically, they both said that the one thing they wish the other person knew about him/her is their serious side. Because every time they say something serious, the other person thinks it’s still a joke.

6. Go back to Item No. 2.

Did something akin to ‘leveling up’ happened between the two of them? Your guess is as good as mine.

NOTE: These are not figments on my imagination – basically because it’s supported by facts that are readily available with just a quick search on the internet – but rather figments of my overly-analytic and oftentimes delusional Agent P senses. I’m not saying you should believe me. In fact, I wish you wouldn’t. :P I wouldn’t wanna be accused of spreading false rumors, ya know. ;)

I missed doing this. :hihihi:

Aftermath Report: Alden Richards ‘Wish I May’ Album Launch
17 October 2015 – SM City North EDSA Cinema 11

The only thing I wished for was to attend Alden Richards’ album launch. No, wait. The only thing I wished for was to see Alden Richards in person. Just a glance would be enough. But with his current status wherein every public appearance he makes becomes a security nightmare, my fear for my own life overrules my desire to see him. I already considered myself ‘retired’ from active fangirling and just decided to admire Alden (and Maine) from a distance.

It took just one Facebook comment stating that I wanted to attend the launch but I don’t feel like going through all the rudiments of going to Manila to pre-order the special CD bundle, lining up for the first-come-first-served event all by myself, boxing for position against a bunch of rabid fans of all genders, etc. etc. for my fate to be reversed. Again.

A friend from way back – as in 15 years back – my Ricky Martin days responded to my dilemma. She said she will add me to her group to help me get the CD bundle. In exchange, I will join them as volunteer helpers for the album launch, in case they needed extra manpower. Which means I might end up a ‘Rogelio’, if necessary. :nailbite: (Note to my non-Filipino readers: ‘Rogelio’ is Kalyeserye jargon for bodyguard/security detail.) Many friends have expressed apprehensions about my decision to attend but… whatever! I’ve done it soooo many times before, I can pluck myself out of fangirl retirement and do it again. For the love of Alden. :hihihi: Lezz do thizzz!

On today’s episode of Kalyeserye, it’s AlDub’s first phone conversation!

…well, first phone conversation that we know of.

I saw this episode at work today with a pretty bad TV signal, coupled with trying to shoo away a colleague who kept offering me ice cream (the hell, can’t you see I’m busy??? :bop: ) and others who were watching me watch TV and waiting for me to react (ang hirap magpigil ng kilig pag may audience, ha!). Still, despite all the distraction, I felt that Alden was way too relaxed at the prospect of talking to Maine on the phone. I mean, he was a bit nervous and tensed, but it wasn’t the same tension and nervousness that he showed in past episodes. This time, it looked more like he was nervous and tensed at the probability that something might inadvertently slip during the phone call. :think:

Based on what we witnessed on national TV today, it’s quite obvious that this was not the first time that Alden and Maine spoke on the phone. They looked (well, Alden, at least) and sounded too comfortable for what is supposed to be an unscheduled first phone conversation.

Disclaimer: Regulars of my blog already know that everything written under ‘Notes From Agent P’ is prone to certain delusions about the couples the blogger is shipping. Please take everything you read in here with lots of grains of salt.

On a somewhat related note: I heard that a certain fan group who just loooooves to blame Alden on anything and everything has been complaining about the fact that it was Yaya Dub/Maine who called instead of the other way around. You know, ‘coz girls aren’t supposed to be the one calling the boys. :rolleyes:

Uhm, I’m sorry, but are we watching the same show?

If I remember correctly – what am I saying, I replayed the episode before I wrote this blog so of course I perfectly recall what happened – it was Lola Nidora who offered to let Yaya Dub talk to Alden. Based on the plot, Yaya Dub was using Lola Nidora’s phone. It would be more logical (not to mention time-saving) to let Yaya Dub call the phone being used by the studio panel for the Sugod Bahay segment instead of going to all the nuances of giving the phone number to Alden so that he could place the call.

And c’mon. It’s Kalyeserye. Quit nitpicking.
