dangermousie: (CH: Nana in red by meganbmoore)
Just finished it and I am giggly and warm and wishing I had the next episode already. I started out being entertained by this drama and somewhere along the way, I've fallen in love. I don't care about plot or anything else, I could just watch these people forever.

Part of the reason I love AGD so much is that in contrast with the grim intesity of Bridal Mask and wistfulness of Big, this drama just makes me wildly happy. I know I used the word before, but it bears repeating - I feel warm and lovely watching it.

Plus, I continue to love the characters more and more. I was always entertained by Do Jin, but I think this is the ep I fell for him - between his subtle but clever and effective protecting Yi Soo at lunch with Tae San and Sera, to his standing up for his employee, to the off-hand mention that ever since YS blew up at him about professing liking for her but sleeping around, he hasn't been meeting women, to the way he is so amused and giddy whenever he comes up with an oh-so-clever-not-really way to see her, to the whole monitor scene which was hilarious and sexy at the same time (the way JDG looks at her when he tells her that if he stays, he might do something bad? I meeeelt. I could feel the chemistry spring off the screen). Also, the car thing at the end - loooool. That's what you get for trying to be cute, Do Jin!

I like the developing Yoon/Maeri thing - he keeps denying any interest but he redid all the shelves in her house so she could reach. AWWWW! I do think he needs a push not to take her adoration for granted while having the luxury of pretending indifference. Maybe Colin (who is v.v.v. hot AND age-appropriate and had a cool rescuing-from-bathroom scene normally reserved for romcom couples) can be some sort of a rival and light a fire under Yoon.

Also, I adore scumbag dude's wife - she rocks.

Finally, ep 6 promises me this:



"You know I love you, right?"

!!!!!!! Yi Soo, you lucky lucky woman, you!

1. I don't watch that many jdramas any more, but I have fallen under the sweet, cracky spell of Shiritsu Bakaleia Koukou.

I can almost belive that this delightful half-hour a week show is based on some manga I would have been obsessed about when younger (aww, who am I kidding? I'd still obsess over it). The premise is certainly pure shoujo crack - a derelict all-boys school whose students are all dedicated to fighting merges with an upper-class, super-refined all-girls school. Heeeee..



There is a ridiculously cute OTP: she - proper, ladylike, strongwilled head of girls' school. He - scruffy, emotion-driven excellent fighter head of boys' school. There are typical shoujo situations, a spiffy soundtrack, a surprsingly winning cast, and there are the typical jdrama lessons about teamwork and loyalty. The whole set-up - refined, ladylike ladies are needed to tame macho guys who are unkempt, rough, and love fighting - is a very traditional idea stripped shamelessly bare to its bones but it works.

Caps from ep 2, which is as far as I am into it. I dare you not to like )

2. If this amazing MV by [livejournal.com profile] joonni doesn't touch you, there is something wrong with you.



It pretty much encapsulates how perfect the OTP of Queen In Hyun's Man was. QIHM is not my n1. 2012 drama (though it came close), but Hee Jin/Bong Do are certainly my 2012 OTP:

3. In case you missed it, here is the HD preview for ep 5 of Gaksital.



I need this ep in my life ASAP! I've seen speculation that the Gaksital we see here is Kang To, donning the mask to rescue Dan. I would love it to be true (what's not to love? KT strikes me as someone who would put this on to protect someone he cares about - he is capable of immense love for the small group of people he cares for, is impulsive and hot-tempered, and has a certain disregard for rules) but I don't really think so - where would he get the mask - I am assuming they are less popular marketplace items now, with the cops hunting the wearer. And it might be too soon for him to both discover who Gaksital really is AND borrow the stuff from him.

[Poll #1846158]

4. I continue enjoying Dr. Jin for Song Seung Heon's sexy grimy face and his chemistry with Park Min Young. Lee Bum Soo is stealing the show. Jaejoong's character crossed an irrevocable line when he burned the village down (!!!) - I can understand what drove him to it, but there are some things you do not do and I think that would have lost him Young Rae's heart for good. JJ is a decent actor, especially for an idol, but I wish this role had a really good actor because that role has a lot of potential.

Off to watch ep 6 of A Gentleman's Dignity now.
