Are we supposed to like Yue-er? Because I lost any ability to do so when she started yelling "let go of me" to the man who was the sole thing preventing her from plunging to a gruesome and unexpected death, a man who was saving her even though she gruesomely poisoned him and he was in total agony and about to die because of it?

I mean, WTF!

Did I mention she was trying to off him for something he didn't even do, and when she learned of the fact, was there remorse, apology or even an "oops?"

Nope.

Ugh, just get off my screen!

No, nothing bad happens but LR is sheer cinematic swoon and so steeped in romance, it makes me giddy.

It's impeccably shot, sheer poetry in motion (the way all of YSH dramas are. I think Spring Waltz in the most gorgeous drama I have ever seen) and it immerses you in sheer, swoony, pure romanticism. No dramas convey that perpetual swoon, that state of mind that brings back my own heady early days with Mr. Mousie, the way YSH's dramas do.

I love it - when is the last time you saw an unabashed romance on screen? But I can see why it has abysmal ratings (and why it will do well in Japan). It is precisely its old-fashioned theme and sensibIlity that appeals to me, but it is also what is dooming it in the ratings (and why Snow Queen and Spring Waltz did similarly poorly in Korea). It is a type of drama which is not in style any more.

But it is the style of drama I love. So I will treasure it all the more for its rarity and for a chance to add a new drama to this dying breed.

Proper post with caps coming when I am not on my iPhone. But I couldn't wait and wanted to gush.

Grrrrr I want to stab secondary guy in the face!!!!!!

But, In Ha, you idiot, fight for Yoon Hee!!!! For eff's sake, assert yourself. I know you are the sensitive and cripplingly shy artistic type but that way lies losing the girl you love and who likes you.

Grrrrrr. She only likes stuff secondary guy does/says because he learned it through In Ha!

Stop being such innocents, Otp, nothing good will come of it!

I am addicted to this!

RP continues to be a breezy, hilarious delight (which, nonetheless, knows when to go for the emotional jugular - that last scene, ouch!). It's not a particularly meta-able drama, but it gives me a couple of hours of pleasure each week.

Yoochun continues to rock his role and is, by turns, funny and oddly vulnerable (I love that he fit so well into his society and was so sure and alpha but now he's utterly befuddled and often cowed by tiny tiny Han Ji Min). His chemistry with HJM continues great (the scenes at the fair were to die for).

My one problem is the bad guys. About the most exciting thing I can say about them is that Tae Mu is kinda hot for a murderer. I don't mind hissable villains but I do mind when they are dull. Of course, if you remove the chaebol family plot, then this drama would be a pure sitcom like a much much MUCH better version of Vampire Idol, so I suppose that's OK.

Anyway, it's adorable, it made me laugh repeatedly, I got misty-eyed a time or two, and it's fully subbed on viki. What's not to love?
