Apparently, MBC has cancelled the showing of the final two episodes of The Moon That Embraces The Sun this week, replacing them with specials, due to a network-wide strike by pretty much everybody (see [livejournal.com profile] clairiere for more details. Short version - they have good cause).

Now, I couldn't care less about Moon/Sun because my view of that drama is pretty much 95% all negative (the only reasons I don't go into rants about that drama is because a number of flisties love it and because I dumped it episodes ago), but that means that the upcoming King 2 Hearts is also getting delayed as it was supposed to start after M/S. ARGH!!!! I need want crave my K2H fix! I suppose that could be good news to K2H's competitors - Rooftop Prince and The Equator Man, because I think K2H was always supposed to be a ratings heavyweight. (Though RP and TEM might also be delayed, per [livejournal.com profile] clairiere, not wanting to go head-to-head with M/S' last ep, which strikes me as mildly idiotic as who knows how this will be resolved and they should take advantage).

I guess the good news is the most K2H (and possibly its competitors) can be delayed to is one week, because the lead of M/S is not available after this week, and neither is Han Ga In, I believe. Hmmmm. That's even more of a disaster than Myung Wol, because MWtS had single-digit ratings (much as I adored it) and M/S is (God help us) a national drama, with its 40%+ ratings.

Anyway, freedom of the press is more important than even my upcoming drama fix (especially since I still have my SUFBB :P), so go strikers! But I hope you get your way soon!

I am not sure if the below poster for The Strongest K-POP Survival is official or fanmade, but I love it anyway, so have it.



Though is it just me, or does it look like they are all about to enter the Colosseum for some Hunger Games-type fight to the death? (The drama's title is not helping).

Btw, it's airing less than two weeks from now, so it's weird there is no teaser out yet. But then Channel A doesn't really have its act together yet, IMO.

So, I am reading Josephine Angelini's Starcrossed, which is actually a very entertaining YA supernatural novel (short take on plot - demigod clans live and fight among us, and heroine discovers she is member of one, when a different clan shows up and her imperative to murder them all acts up. In the middle of high school.)

I actually even like the heroine and the rest of the characters, including the heroine's love interest, who seems a decent guy. For a decent chunk of the book, heroine and her hunky dude have a problem - they can't be together or WW3 will start and the world will end. Cue emo! OK, fair enough, WW3 would suck.

Then, it turns out, they were wrong and WW3 will not start. Crisis averted and initiate make-outs? Not so fast! For an evil more impenetrable, deadly, scary obstacle faces them and they can never be together - they are first cousins.

How I laughed and laughed and laughed. I get that Cassandra Clare's City series might be giving Ms. Angelini's no peace, or that she just tried to find a general bad taboo but City series involved people who believed they were full siblings and, as far as taboos go, first cousins isn't really one!

I mean, sure, people will think it's slightly icky, on the par with marrying your teacher or someone who's too young/too old for you, but you know what it has in common with the latter examples? It's legal and only slightly gross! First cousin marriage is legal in 1/3 of the states (the book takes place in the US and the characters are Americans) which means, due to full faith and credit clause, it's legal in every state. Recent studies have also indicated that there is no harm to the putative kids, either, unless you've been doing cousin marriage for generations.

So, basically - ahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Instead of buying it as this big doomed and angsty thing, I ended the book laughing my head off. Really? Really? This is your big obstacle? Oh my God, how more idiotic could you get? Just get together, idiotic OTP, before I consider you are utterly mentally deficient.

I just saw this newest poster for King 2 Hearts over at dramabeans and I believe I have just fainted from the romantic hotness:



It's like Goong, if Chae Gyung was a North Korean agent, i.e., my perfect drama. I've seen people disappointed that this isn't a romcom (if the poster and trailer are anything to go by), but I am ecstatic - you know me and my intense and angsty dramas, plus I am going to have Rooftop Prince for giggles and two romcoms about royals falling for unsuitable ladies would be overkill.

I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE!

The fact that it has been postponed for a week, gives me a desire to just invent a time machine where it's already week after next.

Also, when did Lee Seung Gi go from 'cute boy next door' to smoking hot?

No, I haven't seen ep 12 yet, but couldn't resist.



Ji Hyuk, I am going to get out my slapping hand! The Noble Idiot thing is arhghghghghghghghghghghgh!!! As far as I can tell, he's lying to Hyun Soo that he is ditching the band because Soo Ah is most important, so Hyun Soo would agree to go solo because he's got that opportunity and also needs the money for his little sister. I understand and it's in character but argh!! And he's breaking up with Soo Ah for probably another noble idiot reason! ARGH! Please tell me the break-up is not condition Bosslady made because (a) why would she care what Ji Hyuk's love life is like, if the band is disbanding and (b) why doesn't JH just explain the truth to SA and ask her to put their dating on hold until HS is under contract or similar. But if that isn't the reason, what other reason could there be? I'd actually prefer self-loathing or something to noble idiot, but we'll see.

Also, God help me, but if they never take Yerim/Hyun Soo anywhere, I will kill things! They better hook up, TPTB or else! Angry Puppy needs to get laid - it does wonders for stress. Ha Jin and his crush can disappear to Timbuktu for all I care.
