Before A Thousand Days' Promise started, I sort of assumed that it was about a loving couple and then a woman gets Altzheimer's. The couple is married, dating, whatever.

Not so fast! Apparently Su Ae is the 'other woman.' You see, Kim Rae Won may love her, but he's marrying the secondary girl.

WHAT?!

I am not even going to get into the fact that I'd like my heroine to have a bit more self-respect than to be the other woman. No, most of my ire is reserved for KRW! WTF, scumbag?! Either you love Su Ae, in which case you should grow some balls and marry her. It's not 1211 - you are not going to be disembowelled by your rich family. Or, you don't love her enough to not marry the arranged fiance - in which case you, sir, are a total scumbag to both women - you should let Su Ae go asap and make it work with your fiance.

Ugh.

How can I have that much rage and I haven't even watched this yet?

I love makjang. I love melodrama. I love conflicted characters. What I do not love is a drama trying to sell me that a scumbag and a weak woman are star-crossed lovers I should feel sorry for.

No.

I'll still check it out but...

Why didn't anyone inform me that Ringer co-starred Ioan Gruffudd as Buffy'sSarah Michelle Gellar's OTP?



This is full-blown 1990s heaven, you guys! I used to be so obsessed with Horatio Hornblower minis when I was in college - it was one of my earliest fandoms (ah, anyone remember the crumpeteers? Ahhh, Archie, my love! But I loved Horatio madly too, of course). I even wrote fic...

Between Buffy and HH, I am feeling a good 10+ yrs younger - I want to dig out my DVDs now...

Plus, the whole "she is impersonating her twin sister and is falling for her twin sister's husband, who is shocked to find his harpy of a wife be kind and cool and is falling for 'her' all over again" is so very kdrama.

Also, only thing is better than Buffy is two Buffies :)



Between this and Nick Weschler (Kyle on Roswell, my long-ago obsession show) being in Revenge, it's like nostalgia run!

Have a Bridget/Andrew MV:
