So, by now I've checked out every airing kdrama I meant to check out. Below is my ranking (from most to least liked - first number is number of eps watched, second number is number of subbed eps out).

1. Faith (2/2) - my new obsession. It's feels like one of my favorite fantasy novels in lush drama form. I've rewatched the episodes out already and obsessed over every little possible thing.

2. Bridal Mask (22/22) - 22 eps aired, 6 eps to go, and obsession is still as strong with me. Smart and dark and poppy and awesome. Like Capital Scandal's older, cooler brother.

3. Arang and the Magistrate (2/2) - a fairy tale for grown ups, this one is ranked as high as it is due to the chemistry between the leads and the whimsical fantasy world. I am not unhealthily invested yet, but I have hopes.

4. Answer Me 1997 (6/6) - the understated underdog of the group. I can't relate to any of the teens at the center of this drama but they feel so real, plus 1990s nostalgia FTW!

5. To the Beautiful You (2/2) - silly and no great acting anywhere in evidence, but it's cute and sweet and relaxing. You could do worse with a fluffy shoujo manga adaptation.

6. May Queen (2/2) - it has the potential to be a great drama when the story moves into the adult portions, but even though the child actors are good, I never get invested in the kid portions of the story. Plus, due to the number of eps, it's moving a tad slowly.

7. Five Fingers (1/1) - I am sure I will enjoy the emo makjang once the adults show up but for now, it's a bunch of talented elders playing horrible people and a bunch of kid actors - and we know how I feel about that. Lower than MQ because it's gloomier.



For now, I am keeping all 7 because I am enjoying all 7, but who knows how it will turn out.

I am not doing a proper Faith ep 3 post, because I watched it largely raw, and also because my torrents are crawling at the speed of an arthritic snail so I have no caps yet but I just wanted to say: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think the entirety of episode 3 was pretty much hurt/comfort heaven. Hurt/comfort nirvana. Pretty much every hurt/comfort fantasy I had times 11.

*swoon, roll in it*

Sure, it continues to be smart and gorgeous and I have just figured out that the sexy chief bad guy is the same actor who played the adrenalin junkie/mercenary Jackson in Swallow the Sun (I adored him there - he and Amy, the suicidal stripper, are arguably my favorite secondary OTP ever). And I think I totally ship the King and Queen, even if he has some growing up to do (the flashback - omo! explains so much! He was so sweet and open with her).

BUT!!!!

Seriously! Eun Soo and Young! And the chemistry! And the fainting in her arms! And refusing treatment because he feels so guilty she is stuck in the past because of him! And his being sick all over the place but still outsmarting bad guys! And her being so determined and fearless about treating him! And she tells him not to die! And all the mutual grabbing and skinship! And the way he freaked out when he saw her legs and quickly looked away! And his telling her that if she keeps talking about him having a deadly condition, he is going to stop her lips properly! (Please, please, lady, keep talking!) And seriously, the chemistry!

As I have no pictures from ep 3 yet, have this gorgeous Lee Min Ho pic from an ad:



Mmmmmm, Choi Young, you can faint into my arms or stop my lips with feverish yours any time.

I am so obsessed that I tried to cap as I was dling - it didn't work well (obviously, as it's not fully dled). On the plus side, my silliness resulted in these random caps of the cast. They are all so gorgeous, it's unreal.









I am so obsessed, it's becoming ridiculous.

Also, I think I may be in the minority, but whatever else happens, I want Eun Soo to be able to go back to the present, hopefully after a bunch of hot hot make-out sessions with the sexy general. Maybe she can somehow take him with her (though wouldn't it screw up history and also he is about as suited to live in a modern city as a wild tiger is) but either way, I just want to woman to be able to go home! She got kidnapped into violent middle ages with supernatural psychos wanting her dead, no family or friends to come with her, and she is held there as some sort of political symbol - that's a fate I'd wish on nobody. (Btw, chief minister has the brains of a snail - if Eun Soo really was from heaven, his preventing her from leaving would have wrought the wrath of God on their head. Choi Young risked heaven's wrath and all to bring her back to stitch the queen up because no wrath could be as bad as the outcome if the queen died, but minister has no such reason).
