I have tried out the first two episodes of Horse Healer, driven by curiosity and the fact that I had nothing else to watch on the plane. Other than the fact that it was awesome to see Daddy Damsari pop up for a brief role, SKIP SKIP SKIP!!! It's well-made and competently acted, but very much not my thing. I was about as involved as I would be studying merits of rival brands of cardboard. Traditional sageuk about medicine with ample time devoted to childhood *yawn* portions - no thank you. Especially since I saw the trailer for The Great Seer and it looked amazing:

Boring medical stuff with actors I have zero interest in or Ji Sung as a mystic, french kissing, Kim So Yeon, and Ji Jin Hee in skulls and war paint? It's a no-brainer. Oh, and for my fellow Faith fanatics - the sexy sexy warrior played by Ji Jin Hee is the one who eventually kills Choi Young, according to history.

I've also watched the second ep of Oohlala Couple and it was hilarious like nobody's business. The wife is AWESOME and the swap is going to be great. Also, did I get it right that one of the two Fates was responsible for the husband falling for Not-Rie? Hmmm. Not that she was responsible for him being a selfish bastard. Oh, and past life stuff is officially awesome:

I want to watch the past life drama!

Oh, and Glass Mask is finally getting subbed (on viki). I normally don't do dailies, but I am going to check it out due to my love of Seo Woo who is an amazing, underrated actress. I need her to come back to normal-length, primetime, non-weekend dramas. Please?

Finally, I finished To the Beautiful You. It wasn't anything groundbreaking, or anything I will even remember much into next week, but it was fluffy, as cute as it was brainless and, I managed to finish it, which is more than I can say for any other version of that story.

(Plus, the ending was so darn cute!)

I was going to ask if Glass Mask was adapted from the manga, but I see from its synopsis that they're not related at all. It sounds like something I'd like, but I am in no way ready to commit to a long drama. Especially since it's been awhile since I last watched a K-drama. Do let us know how it goes!

I came here to ask this. I thought the Japanese drama was amazing!

I was laughting so hard about the fake US part of Beautiful You. Too bad Minho's smile was looking so fake. Too bad they writer did not find a better ending. I always thought the Manga ending was too boring.
And I surely adored LHW in it. Hopefully it will give a boost to his career. Too bad I got too old for Idol drama boys. I feel like robbing a crib XD.

I will check out the OC Drama, even when I never was a fan of body switch Dramas. At least I can oggle about Shin Hyun Joon's looks *rawr* ;).

Oh my goodness, the last episode of TTBY was terrible. And when I saw Jae-hee in her girl incarnation, I wanted to headdesk until I was unconscious. Couldn't they have given her better "girl" hair? What is with that hideous sideburns-looking thing going on? I thought the drama was pretty cute until the last quarter, and then it just went downhill. The writing was always lazy, but I thought it sunk to new lows of endless plot repetition and logic fail.

That being said, Minho was somewhat wooden but adorable, and I genuinely loved the actor who played Min Hyun-jae. Forget Jae-hee and Tae-joon, the drama should have been about Hyun-jae. He was the only one with a character arc. No one else learned anything at all, certainly not Jae-hee or Tae-joon. Jae-hee inspires in me a desire to strangle her anytime she opens her mouth. I can't blame Sulli, who was cute, but that writer needs to be shot for the things that came out of her mouth.

Ehhh, I used ff button liberally so I am perhaps much kinder to it if I had to watch it in real time. I think the manga is hugely repetitive and they did the best they could.
