Blame [livejournal.com profile] hamster428. Her post on Qin's Moon, a Chinese wuxia 3-D animation set during the Qin Dynasty, led me to seek it out and now I am OBSESSED!



It's basically everything I love in a period/fantasy/wuxia cdrama only even prettier! There are supposed to be seven seasons - three are out with subs, fourth is currently airing. Epic battles, tangled loyalties, OTPs that wield swords!

I will eat...something, if this MV doesn't sell you on this:




Actually, I am pre-obsessed with one particular couple:



I mean, they kill things together and make music together! You know it's soulmate territory!

A couple of shippy MVs )

OK, say you. You might be interested but what on earth is this animation about? Glad you asked. Plot synopsis from ancientchinese.net: Qin's Moon tells the story of the rise and fall of the Qin Dnasty, the first Dynasty of China. During this time, six kingdoms were conquered by Qin in a ruthless takeover, with the new emperor forcing his subjects to follow his will and laws. The story follows a young boy, Tianming, who is hunted down by the Qin empire for reasons beyond his knowledge; and together with his friends, allies and teachers, will change the course of history.

As the story progresses fantasy, steampunk and history intertwine to tell this truly unique tale of courage during uncertain times. Tianming faces treacherous enemies, hope and loss, difficult relationships with both family and friends, and the challenges of deailing with a changing world. Eventually, a new era will be created out of their struggles for a better world.


(You can find torrents for the subbed first three seasons on ancientchinese.net or watch subbed eps here). There is also this great QM website and a QM tumblr.

Join me in my madness!

First off, standard disclaimer: SPOIL ME FOR THIS WEEK'S SHUT UP AND PERISH!!!!



Now that DH2 seems to be drawing to a close, I finally gave in to my barely-checked curiosity and checked it out. At the end of ep 1 I decided, in no particular order that:

(a) this is not a good drama
(b) I am entertained as hell by its cheesiness

I think my realization that DH2 and I were meant to be came about ten minutes into the episode, when JB decided to fight the Man for his God-given right to gyrate on stage after 10pm.



Go, you martyr for human rights!

(What you don't see is that the rest of him is covered in some sort of demented leather and feathers combo)

Sure, later it came out there was some additional reasons but I am too amused by the concept of fighting dancing oppression to let it go :P

Hae Sung is too dim to exist but it bothers me much less when the heroine is 17. I do like Rian, the resident bitch diva. You go, girl!



I have pretty much no impression of Yoo Jin except that his earring is verry distracting.

Most of the young cast can't act much but for once, I don't mind cutting some slack to the idols. These are not roles that require drama chops but a big part of it is being able to sing/dance/look good on stage, which idols do know how to do.

Basically, with liberal fast-forwarding, this is dumb-as-rocks but fun. Plus, I love the soundtrack.

Yup, I have no taste.
