dangermousie: (ISWAK first kiss by pinkfactory)
I've enjoyed the first two eps of AGD, really liked the next two, but with this week, I've become AGD's slavering slave.



I wonder if the reason I love this so much, while not being keen on most romcoms, is that I am ahjumma and this is an ahjumma romcom - cross-dressing teen nuns are pretty far from my life, but 30+/40+ professionals, not so much. Or maybe it's Jang Dong Gun's chest.

Behind the cut, with not too much meta (because how many words does perfection need?) are some of my favorite moments...

Here here here here. Be warned - you may need smelling salts )

Now in the non-shippy discussion, whose son do you think Colin is? (Because I am pretty sure he's the son of one of the four). My money is on Do Jin. There would be no point for him to be Ja Rok's - there is no dramatic tension, maybe some giggles, but that's it. Yoon seems to have been with his dead wife since they were young. I suppose he could be Tae San's though then Maeri would be his aunt and the faint flirtation would be gross. DJ makes most sense because it would be most dramatic, and if so, I wonder how it will impact his nascent relationship with Yi Soo?

I am in the middle of ep 15 with subs and am literally bawling. It's ridiculous - I am as spoiled as it is humanly possible to be and yet here I am. But! But!!!!



On a different note, Bung Do is freaking insane. Bung Do has NO idea whether the talisman will still work or not, and yet he still slits his own throat without hesitation on the chance that it does and will transport him back to Hee Jin. OMFG NO WORDS. (Also, I love that it's not just HJ he would lose but this whole wonderful new world with all its new opportunities for travel and learning and experience and freedom. 17th century world is pretty much a nightmare). But seriously, Holy FUCK! And it works but only for a few minutes and oh I am bawling like a freaking lunatic and I have no idea how people watched it live because I would have DIED!

Proper post when coherent but on a final note for now, the telephone thing at the end of the drama so makes sense, seeing the crucial importance of phones in this drama and the fact that when the 'miracle' happened he was about to die yet again, with no hope of survival.

This is a letter that's written both to you and to me at the same time. I might forget that I had ever written this letter...Or even this letter itself might disappear. For me or for you, this letter is written for whoever may live holding on to the memories. When I first happened to come into possession of this talisman, I was very curious about its cause and effect. At first, I thought that the realization of my dream was the effect. Shortly after, I thought meeting you was its effect. Then afterwards, I thought that beginning a new life in another world was the effect. But it's only now that I came to realize its effects. If the cause was me surviving, then me losing everything was the effect. My future. My honor. My values. My people. And you, too. In order to preserve my life, I had to give up an equivalent price. This only made sense. That I thought I could keep even one of those things was my own foolishness. How much more will I lose in order to repay the price? Not being able to see you anymore, I have now realized that even that was a luxury. Memories. Our memories. Memories. Losing them is the final price I must pay. I do not know what will happen now. Will we forget each other, or will we live unable to forget, forever in agony? If I have a final wish...it is to remember you. In a life without aims, to not even have those memories would be hell. And you...As for you...Even if you should happen to read this letter someday far in the future, I pray that you will not be able to realize whom it is for.



My. Heart. Is. Broken. I am not sure how I can survive time-travelling romantic angst. Seriously. Cannot cope. Eyes puffy. Throat hurts. Nose red. Traumatized.

Also, sorry, SUFBB, but you are going to have to share N1 drama of 2012 spot.

I bawled and then I was giddy with joy! It was pretty much a perfect drama from beginning to end and is going in my Top 10 all-time dramas for sure. Fwiw, I loved the ending but I will go into more detail on that once I do my proper eps 15-16 post. That will have to wait until the weekend though, because I have to sort through 1600 (!!!!) caps.

SO FRELLING PERFECT.

Faith has started filming and we all know what that means - Lee Min Ho with armor and a mane of glory!




Thank you, Lord! Or, in this case, Song Jina! Seeing that this is by the people who made Legend, my favorite period drama of all time and, arguably, my favorite drama of all time, period, I am insanely psyched.

You know, being taken back into the past, especially the past that involves Mongolian invasions, sounds pretty appalling. But this drama gets one thing right - if you are going to die of sepsis, at least you should first get armored Lee Min Ho as a consolation prize!

A few more shots on tumblr.
