And they are Yoochun and Han Ji Min. YESSSSSSS!

For those who don't know, RP is an upcoming drama about a prince who loses his beloved to death. Unlike the typical kdrama hero who'd weep an ocean and drown in those tears, the prince catapults himself and his followers into the future somehow to look for her reincarnation. And that's where they bump into doppelganger (and possibly reincarnation) HJM.

This sounds INSANE. I want it!

I am also happy with the leads cast. Yoochun is a rare idol-turned-actor who I like (SKKS is one of my all-time favorites and Miss Ripley was fascinating, if flawed) and Han Ji Min can do no wrong. Dramabeans pointed out there is a four-year-difference there, but much as noona romances annoy me on principle (a) four years is nothing in either direction, imo, especially since neither party is 20 and (b) the actors both look their age - i.e., close enough in age for it not to matter. It would be another thing if HJM looked older than her years or Yoochun younger.

Anyway, hooray!

Welcome to the world of Hungry, a newly-premiered jdrama that you all should be watching asap. Hungry stars Mukai Osamu as Eisuke, a rock musician who trades in his guitar for some cooking utensils to carry on his family's cooking tradition (just as well - he is an awful musician but an amazing chef). It also stars the awesome Takimoto Miori (Ikemen Desu Ne), as Chie, a college student who becomes a fan of Osamu's cooking (pls pls let them have a romance pls!)

YOU ALL NEED TO WATCH IT ASAP! I don't remember when an episode of a drama just made me so happy and relaxed and charmed. My good mood cells thank me. They are all such darlings! Eisuke, despite being both a rocker and a chef, thus theoretically prone to earning double asshole points, is just such a sweetheart, the t-shirt aside:



Yes, it says "Please trust me. I am asshole." Indeed. When Mr. Mousie and I were in Japan, we saw a teen girl wearing a t-shirt which said "I lost my virginity in Madagascar" but I think even beats that.

Chie is loveable to bits, and so is Eisuke's motley kitchen crew (his former band!), waitstuff and office-lady girlfriend played by Kuninara Ryoko.

Not convinced yet? Let me convince you further! )

I wish we saw more of Han Ga In but still promising. Maybe this drama will make me overcome my dislike of Kim Soo Hyun (no, not rational, I fully realize), the way Warrior Baek Dong Soo did with Yoo Seung Ho.

I must be the only person who wants the adults asap - the child actors did a great job but ultimately kid sections are never going to be a draw for me.

Koala's awesome blog put Hanbando (Peninsula) on my radar. But it was this picture that turned me from interested to officially pre-obsessed:



Can one picture single-handedly make me add Hanbando to my three most anticipated 2012 kdramas (along with Rooftop Prince and Bridal Mask)? Well, when the picture is of stars Hwang Jung Min and Kim Jung Eun, who are supposed to play a couple who rise through political ranks and get emrboiled in intrigue in an alternate universe unified Korea? HELL FREAKING YESSSSSS!!!

The teaser does not hurt - it gives me IRIS vibe flashbacks, and if you remember how I was obsessed with IRIS, that's a great thing.



I need this right now! Luckily, it's airing on ChosunTV in February. Bring it on!!!

LJ is dead today. Is everyone protesting SOPA/PIPA?

I am booooooored.

Hmmm, should I try History of Salaryman? But then seeing I am watching Padam Padam, What's Up, Fermentation Family (about to start), Qing Shi Huang Fei, Hungry, Skip Beat, Kingyo Club, Smile, Arakawa under the Bridge, Gou, Moon/Sun, Ojakgyo Brothers and probably other things I am forgetting atm, perhaps I should not add more before things blend in my head.

Blah. Stop being quiet, LJ! I just finished the latest Simon R. Green book (The Bride Wore Black Leather - excellent as always - he's my favorite working scifi/fantasy author for a reason. Now gimme another Drood book, I need to know what happened!) and need stuff to do!
