I rather adore the OTP of the Kim Rae Won and Jung Ryo Won starrer Which Star Are You From (there is a reason this drama made it on my fave kdrama list). They are angsty but functional and fun. And with so much chemistry. She is a lookalike younger sister of his dead girlfriend, who couldn't be more different, and he can't help but fall for her...



I could picspam a lot - I adore his love confession at the end of ep 10/11, with dramatic running, and hugging, and cuteness and angst - it's both awwww-inducing and hilarious. But, the one ep I currently have on my HD is ep 8 which is just as well - it's unspoilery.

Enter here for cuteness )

The ending of episode 9 of Which Star Are You From was one of the most adorable things ever, in drama world!



"Am I really just that to you? A little sister you can tease and call a dork?"
*swooping smooch out of nowhere* YES.

Kim Rae Won dramas always have excellent smoochies. Hmmm...

And earlier, there was this gorgeousness:



You know, though the stories and the characters don't have anything in common, WSAYF is reminding me of Save the Last Dance in one very important respect: it's a "meat and potatoes" romantic kdrama done excellently,nothing extra or not enough. And you know, that is actually both rarer and much harder than it sounds. In fact, except for StLD and WSAYF, the only other drama I think can also claim the title potentially is One Fine Day.

Plus, I am a sucker for this sort of thing:

Seeing that I spent the last 8 eps of Which Star Are You From (am on ep 9 and am adoring it as much as ever) in a state of lust fascination over Kim Rae Won, I went digging around for more KRW stuff and stumbled on Say You Love Me, an earlier drama he did. I wanted to watch it a while ago but then forgot, even if the plot sounded super-fun: a young unworldly couple brought up by Buddhist monks (!!!) crosses paths with a 'woman of the world' who objects to seeing pure love around so she sets out to wreck them and to seduce KRW. Cougars FTW!

Well, trying to find things on it on youtube, I stumbled on this scene which made me SQUEE in glee at the dirtybadwrongness of it all and the delicious cheese. Also, I didn't know you could do this stuff in a kdrama. Short summary of the scene: Mrs Cougar sets out to have Mr. Brought Up By Monks' virginity and succeeds, rather against his will (but not entirely).





Heeee.

Enter here for dirtybadwrong caps of amusingness )

I am so going to enjoy it for all the wrong reasons. But must finish WSAYF first.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!

I got lovely presents from Mr. Mousie and we watched the fireworks over the ocean at midnight. It was gorgeous.

In more fannish news, I started the Korean drama Which Star Are You From which so far (about half an ep in) looks very promising.



Kim Rae Won (whom I adore) is Choi Seung-Hee, a movie star whose life fell apart three years ago, when his sophisticated, adored girlfriend, Hye-Soo (Jung Ryu-Won), died in a car accident. Since then he's been doing his best trying to drink himself into oblivion and generally to disconnect with life. But just when he's decided to move on, the small town he happens to be in on his wanderings gives him a total shock: when he turns around he sees a woman who looks exactly like his dead girlfriend. Her name is Bok-Shil (also played by Jung Ryu-Won), and except for looks she has little in common with Seung-Hee's love: she is not poised, sophisticated, or college-educated. She is a country bumpkin who keeps goats (!!!), wears her hair in childish pigtails, isn't too picky about hygeine, and is cheerful and pushy.

Still, Seung-Hee cannot help but follow her and eventually fall in love with her. But did he fall in love with her for her or just because she happens to look like his dead girlfriend? Oh, and of course, since it's a kdrama, I have been promised plenty of other angst and obstacles and issues, like why does Bok-Shil look like Hye-Soo (no, it's not Hye-Soo come back from the dead with amnesia, though I would adore that sort of storyline. Is there a kdrama about it, other than Winter Sonata? I want the girl to get amnesia this time.)

So far it looks angsty and pretty, with a soundtrack to die for. I have been promised a happy ending, and KRW is one of my all-time favorites, but he tends to do dramas which are very popular but not my cup of tea (Love Story in Harvard, Gourmet etc) so I am excited to find one which seems to be my thing. And I really like Jung Ryu-Won. She and Daniel Henney ended up the characters I still liked by the end of Kim Sam Soon, and not the leads. So I am excited to see her as a lead.

Plus, there should be a lot of kissing! And I am in the mood for something swoonily romantic, and nobody does swoony romance like kdramas.

Who knew that a bare brush of the hands would leave me squeeing incoherently, like a 12 year old?

Green Rose has a certain emotional restraint, almost Victorian in its repression, in the scenes between Jung-Hyun and Soo-Ah, two lovers reuniting after three years apart, but with neither being able (for plot and emotional reasons) to openly acknowledge the other that just…

Just…

OK. I am incoherent again.

Spoilery babbling )

OK, oh no.

Another kdrama entered contention for my next big drama watch. Which Star Are You From with Kim Rae Won (the kissing fiend, all his dramas have a lot of kissing, LOL). Argh. At this rate, I am going to go a bit nutty trying to narrow it down. Dramas are evil for a person with a short attention span and grabby tendencies, like me. I keep spinning ‘this one next, or this one, or that one?’

I’ll make myself wait though. This one is in my Top 10 ‘to watch soon’ kdramas though.

But these pictures make it hard:



More pics )

So far, the Ten ‘soonest watched’ kdramas are (order fluid and changes every day :D)

Lengthy watchlist ramblings )

Am through episode 19 of Green Rose which continues to be very good. I especially loved otp spoiler )

I decided to take a little break from that drama then because I can't marathon without a break and, in interests of clearing my drama slate, I continued my watch of Love Story in Harvard. Finished ep 5. The law stuff in it makes my head hurt more even than the English, I am not super keen on the leading lady (she is OK but she doesn't make me love her like most of kdrama heroines do) and at least so far, it's a bit too fluffy, but:

1. Kim Rae Won is full of adorable. He is so full of adorable, he covers the rest of the cast. And Hyon-Woo is one of those rare well-adjusted laid-back, fun guys you see so rarely as protagonists in drama. He'd actually be someone fun to date in RL.

2. KISSING. OMG, the first kiss ('touchdown!') was the most adorable kdrama first kiss ever. And the way they kiss in the bathroom and giggle and everything and she is all 'I need to brush teeth first' is...so cute. They arean incredibly functional OTP. (Though girl, if KRW is opening his mouth to kiss you, at least pretend to open yours, don't hold your lips together so tightly, it looks weird).

Anyhow, once I am done with GR, my drama slate is confusing.

Should I:

1. Rewatch Goong or My Girl, one of dramas I adore
2. Watch a wuxia drama
3. Watch a Lee Dong Gun drama
4. Watch Lovers.

Heeeeelp :) (And I am not even mentioning the other ones I have).

I checked my DVDs of kdrama Say You Love Me (to see that they work) and...

*swooooooooon*

The subs are iffy (but understandable) as it's one of those Chinese box sets, but then there have never been fansubs for it or proper English language release, but I don't care!!!

I watched the ending and EEEEEEE!!!!!

Kim Rae Won is so gorgeous.

And there is desperate running, and reunion of the OTP after years of separation and her asking him why he doesn't wear the necklace (it's actually a string with some sort of Buddhist symbol on it. They were brought up by Buddhist monks *glee*) and he is alltentatively 'I wanted you to help me put it on' and she does and then they just hug and hold on for dear life and they are borderline weeping but not quite and EEEEEE!

I mainly got it for the deliciously angsty yummy plot of two young, 'pure' childhood lovers (KRW and the leading lady) who end up being broken up (apparently temporarily) because they come into the big bad world and this successful but unfulfulled businesswoman with her sharky off-on-boyfriend sees them as a sort of slap in the face to herself, so she sends bf after the girl and sets out to get KRW herself (not out of love or anything). EEEE.

But I am good and not watching until I finish my current roster.

As Witch Yoo Hee is to fivil, so is Proposal Daisakusen to dangermousie. I finally found a drama after Hanadan2 that makes me squeal like crazy and impatient wait for new eps. Mind you, I love Witch Yoo Hee (the other one in my list of awesome spring season dramas I am following) but nothing comes close to the sheer giddy of ProDai.

So, I bring you some Yamapi-heavy screencaps, courtesy of soompi

They are behind the cut )

And kdrama picture of the day? This shot of Kim Rae Won from kdrama What Star Are You From

Nothing is as gorgeous as a gorgeous boy with tears in his eyes.
