Apparently, QSHF, the Ruby Lin angstorama I am pre-obsessed about, has been moved way up and is airing September 28, right after BBJX ends. YESSS.

In honor of that, have the 15-min trailer good subs (subbed by viki, which is subbing the drama overall). I'd embed it but stupid lj doesn't allow iframe embedding.

In the event you don't want to watch 15+ minutes, here is a short summary "doom, angst, cool outfits, be-furred siblings, poison, swords, more angst and DOOOOOOM."

After watching the trailer, I must say I have the following advice to the characters:

Ruby Lin: Find a Buddhist nunnery and hide there for the rest of your life. Also, before befriending hot war-genius kings of neighboring nations, make sure they are emotionally stable. Also, please vet your significant others' family and decide to adopt if you want kids as, on the off chance he (any he) and you live long enough to reproduce, you don't want your offspring to take after psychos, trust me.
Wallace Huo: I appreciate you saving Ruby and protecting her from everything, but perhaps she wouldn't need saving and protecting if you didn't bring her to a palace where your wife and sis both want her dead. Also, that part about telling her you'll make her happiest ever when she's there because of blackmail? I sense cognitive dissonance. Final note - shed the fur, you are not a gorilla. While we are at it, just shed everything. Repeatedly. Please.
Yan Kuan: Just kill yourself. Seriously, poor thing, you'll be better off. But first please off all the aristocracy in your kingdom, starting with your 'it's OK to lose a war to get rid of someone' family. Also first have a hot make-out with Ruby and make me happy. Sex on floor of prison involving chains accepted.
Wallace's fur-obsessed sister: there is a kdrama weeping for you to be its secondary girl somewhere.
Wallace's wife: Schemes of a Beauty is not a guide to life. Also, if a dude doesn't want you, maybe you should take it out on him and not the other woman?
Dude with Long Hair: rock on, that is all.
Everyone else: I am not sure whether jail or therapy is more appropriate. Most likely both.

I was rewatching parts of ep 13 of Myung Wol and it struck me that the real reason North Korea sent Myung Wol, Ryu et al wasn't to get those mystical mumbo-jumbo books or to get a Hallyu star to defect. No, they just wanted an excuse to get the most incompetent spies out of the way by any means possible. I mean, the way they are incompetent is EPIC.

Let's Discuss Top 10 Failures, with Illustrations )

At least MW was not an agent before, the other three have no excuse for failing Spy 101.

The person who is going to bring down the evil Lee family and feed Creepy to the worms! The revenge mastermind spinning an elaborate web!



Yes, it's a little old lady in traditional garb. And she is going to have Creepy's guts to put on her toast and Creepy's blood to stir in her tea! I love you, Gloria.

Also, Kang Suk and Dong Ah having been drinking together to drown their shippy sorrows, but I have an even better, more permanent solution for them. It would probably go something like this:

Dong Ah: There is no way Yoon Seo and I can be together, ever.
Kang Suk: And Jin Jin left me due to the crap with her sister and my psycho brother. What to do?
Kang Suk and Dong Ah (together): Let's hook up!
Dong Ah: You'll fit right in with my penchant for traumatized illegitimate rich kids from psycho families.
Kang Suk: And I clearly go for violent, mouthy slum dwellers, big time.
Dong Ah: and at least I won't have to crane my neck that far down to make out with you. I could so save on chiropractor bills!
Kang Suk: And this is the perfect "fuck you" to my family! They are going to weep tears of blood they busted up me and Jin Jin.
*commence make-out*

Well, a fangirl can dream :)

Am about to binge on Secret Garden, mmmmmm.

In part because I read spoilers through ep 12 (which aired today) and skimmed the eps and they indicate they are not giving up on Oska/Seul after all (I am attached to my secondary otps, sorry!) but in part because I cannot stay away from the adorable cooky angsty trainwreck that is Joo Won/Ra Im.




JW/RI will get their own post of awesomeness, but for now I must emit a squee over my highly dysfunctional secondary OTP.

Seul, I love you, I really do, and I don't want to feed you to the alligators the way a small but significant part of my flist does, but for goodness' sake, "if he believes badly of me, I'll make him think even worse, then he'll be sorry" is NOT a way to get the guy. Honest. Also, he cannot grovel for his using you for sex or, in actuality, explain he didn't mean his comments to his buddy, if you don't tell him this is what made you dump him and go Terminator in High Heels! I mean - he has no idea you heard the comment and since he never actually meant it, being in love with you and all, even if too proud to admit it to 'friends', it probably didn't even stick in his memory. Seriously. Get a grip! Oska, you are not much better - if you still love her, for God's sake, tell her so. She has no idea you EVER loved her. You may not know about the comments she overheard but you can tell she's laboring under the belief you didn't care for her.





Jeez, you two - get a therapist! I heard Joo Won might know one. Or work your issues out in bed. But make the other get a comprehensive STD panel first, guys - you never know where those body parts have been.

It is easy to be a drama heroine - as heroine death is fairly passe, all you have to do is to be cute and plucky and voila - soon enough you will be Mrs. Chaebol, adored by all, and finally able to afford those eye treatments to fix extensive tear damage.



But if you are Secondary Girl? A Roman Christian has a better chance against a hungry Coliseum lion than you do of things going right. Long a traditional staple of every drama, from the lightest romcom to the weepiest melodrama, Secondary Girl is drama's most comfortingly recognizable presence - hero and heroine may be sweet or damaged, Secondary Guy may be an angel or a psycho, but Secondary Girl was always, always comfortingly evil. As soon as her overly made-up face entered the screen, you knew what to expect.

Until now. Recently, there has been a seismic change and now secondary girls get their own OTPs, get their own storylines and complexity, and occasionally get to live happily ever after. They are still in the minority, but they are there.

So here is my guide for you, Secondary Girl, on how to take advantage and end up with something as opposed to just a bunch of plastic surgery and a jail sentence. Chart your course in these six easy steps.

1. Do you love the hero? Don't. Just don't. I don't care if you grew up together, I don't care if your families betrothed you, if you are best friends, or even if you have killed every other woman in the world so his choice is you or a fat New Mexican named Bob. You are never going to get him. How to recognize a hero? If he's hot and angsty and has just met a cute poor girl? He's a hero. Just buy the wedding gift already and move on to someone else - you are usually hot and rich, so how hard is it to find someone to date anyway?

2. If you are dating a guy you like, or one you think you may like in the future, or will ever like for even a moment (even if said moment is going to occur during a meth-fueled binge), MARRY HIM. Trust me, however valid your reasons for ditching him (your career, jealousy, trying to protect him from your terminal illness, sheer cussedness), it doesn't matter - you'll never get a second chance and will later be left all alone, gnashing your teeth, as he rides into the sunset with a barely-educated low-class woman who you wouldn't even hire to clean your expensive shoes. He might not even get her, but he will still pine for her rather than have wild whoopie with you. Before a sweet poor girl crosses your man's path, better have him sealed and delivered. Dramas are littered with Secondary Girls doomed to spinsterhood and cat lady status merely because the first time they started paying attention to that cute guy was when he finally got married to heroine - even if said guy has previously been madly proposing marriage to Secondary Girl herself for ten years straight.

3. Even if Restraining Orders seem to be nonexistent in dramaworld, you should probably be cognizant of their existence. Let me put it this way - if he doesn't love you, let it go. Is any man really worth going to jail for? Especially if he'd rather eat arsenic than be with you? Trying to blackmail him into marriage, attempting to kill him, stalking him at every opportunity - clinging and felonies are not sexy. I know Hero's tears are tasty tasty ambrosia to you, but for your own sake, please refrain.

4. That applies to crimes in general. I know it looks tempting to run over that pesky stepsister with your shiny car, to kick some poor people, or to shoplift - but trust me, these will come back to bite you. Do you really want to spend 5-10 in the clink? You'll never be able to get a boyfriend in there.

5. I know plastic surgery is usually a passion and hobby with you. And in normal life, plenty of men, especially powerful and rich men, are attracted to plastic-fantastic ladies with big boobs, long legs and nose jobs. It sucks, then, that you are not in in real world but in dramaworld. And there, men seem to prefer less plastic and less perfect-looking ladies. The less work you've had done, the more likely you'll be to land a man. You can get all the plastic surgery your heart desires after.

6. Quick, quick, while hero and heroine are distracted, grab the Secondary Guy. No guarantees but at least that way you have a fighting chance.

Armed with these six steps, go forth and conquer the world! You may actually have a hope now, especially if you go easy on the crazy eyes.

And if not, maybe you'll get a drama of your own one of these days.

Good luck. You'll need it!

Sorry, I always wanted to say that and Summer Desire has finally allowed me to do this!

Anyway, I have been following novel translations and in the latest installment we learn that the one thing Xiamo cannot forgive Ou Chen is not her parents' death (because she is not in immediate grieving the way she was the night she dumped him and she knows it was nobody's fault - she is not a loon), but something else. Heeeeeeeeee.

Apparently, she had to take her bro out of the hospital early after her parents' deaths because they were out of money but when she returned home with him, she found out they were being kicked out on the street because the company was taking back the house. And the dudes taking all the stuff out assaulted her and her brother - and tried to drag her brother off for molestation (???!!! wtf) - she was defending him and hit the guy's head with a rock so she got booked for assault. Her bro spent the night begging in front of Ou mansion in the rain but nobody let him in and he's been sicker ever since. She was finally out of prison (with scars on her face - what, she got into a jailhouse fight?), after a bit.

Dude, no wonder she can't forgive Ou Chen - if your ex kicked you out of house and home, sent assaulting goons after you, stuck you in jail, and got your brother sicker - I can see how fluffy feelings would disappear, especially for someone as tough and distrustful as Xiamo is to start with.

BUT...big surprise. It turns out it was not Ou Chen (as this viewer already knew as OC was hooked up to respirators at the time), it was the butler! The butler did it! LOL. And even now, as Xiamo confronts him, he is all "hey, bitch, you hurt my young master, I just wanted some payback, I was right." *rolls eyes* Man, does EVERYONE in this story need a psychiatrist? Also, old dude, I hate to point out to you that not only is a break-up is not a criminal offense in the real world, no matter how mean the dumper was, but your actions screwed up your boss' chances much much worse than if you just stuck to polishing silver and pouring port.

Also, after reading that stuff, great, it's official, BOTH of Xiamo's suitors are suicidal. Apparently the night Xiamo told Ou Chen she can only forgive him if he dies, when he left, he purposely crashed his car into a truck to do what she said (since he is so obedient she should have told him she'll forgive him only if he gives her $10mil instead). THERAPY, OU CHEN, LOOK IT UP. (he tells her it was an accident when she asks in present day though, awwwwwwwwww).


But sorry - I can reconcile myself with Ou Chen/Xiamo if I work hard but am still a Xiamo/Luo Xi shipper even if that would be such a total trainwreck for both of them. I don't like my woobie Luo Xi hurt - he is a barely functioning mess already. If he can't have Xiamo, fine - just give him some warm and happy girl with a PhD in psychology and a lot of patience and cuddles.

In conclusion: therapy for all!!!!!!!!!!!!

ETA: Have a trailer for ep 5. (((Luo Xi)))

Sorry, I always wanted to say that and Summer Desire has finally allowed me to do this!

Anyway, I have been following novel translations and in the latest installment we learn that the one thing Xiamo cannot forgive Ou Chen is not her parents' death (because she is not in immediate grieving the way she was the night she dumped him and she knows it was nobody's fault - she is not a loon), but something else. Heeeeeeeeee.

Apparently, she had to take her bro out of the hospital early after her parents' deaths because they were out of money but when she returned home with him, she found out they were being kicked out on the street because the company was taking back the house. And the dudes taking all the stuff out assaulted her and her brother - and tried to drag her brother off for molestation (???!!! wtf) - she was defending him and hit the guy's head with a rock so she got booked for assault. Her bro spent the night begging in front of Ou mansion in the rain but nobody let him in and he's been sicker ever since. She was finally out of prison (with scars on her face - what, she got into a jailhouse fight?), after a bit.

After watching ep 15 of Pick the Stars, my feelings of rage can only be contained in a series of open letters.

Dear Secondary Hag -

You bugfuck insane vicious bitch - WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU? You have achieved your objective, roping in your stalking victim, only through blackmail and the man loathes the sight of you. Let's see, should you

(a) ehhhh, it's clearly not working out, what kind of miserable marriage would this be? Tell him you changed your mind.
(b) he might hate you but he's hot - you tell him marriage to him would be miserable but nobody needs love for a one-night-stand - revise your blackmail to this more sustainable objective.
(c) You are an optimist. He may not love you now but with some patience (which you can afford to exercise seeing you guys are engaged) he will!
(d) How dare he not be ecstatic! Your shall yell at him and threaten him and be offended he is not excited by your wedding dress and try to make his life even more miserable than it already is. Did I mention the part about slapping his housekeeper because you think he may like her? I mean, you won him fair and square through blackmail of the worst kind - how dare he not be in love with you and how dare some other hussy be in his vicinity even?

If you picked (d), congrats, Secondary Hag.

I honestly do not get what goes through your head. You are ecstatic about marrying someone who cannot stand you and makes his feelings clear. Leaving aside the monumental evilness - what kind of marriage do you think you will have?

Please die painfully in a fire,

- Me.

Dear Jun Ha a.k.a. Slimy Younger Brother I Hate -

I have a confession to make - at one point of the episode I fantasized about twisting your head right off. Objectively speaking you are a very good-looking man but I am afraid I will not be able to picture your actor, Shin Dong Wook, in anything else without shuddering.

I don't hate you because you are an OTP interloper - you are not. I hate you because of (a) your long and devoted championship of the Hag getting what she wants. All well and good but what she wants is your brother who is clearly going borderline mental because of it all. Shouldn't you be mildly concerned about it as you know he hates her - as opposed to getting in his face and making things worse; (b) your trying to manipulate Pal Kang. I don't care if your effort to get her to fall for you so Hag could have a clear path gotten transmuted into genuine feelings. I don't care. You know why? Because you are wooing her without any clear idea of a final goal or responsibility or anything - it's because this is fun. Doing this to a woman who needs to claw her way out of poverty and has five small children to support is unconscionable. Ooooh, how fun, making her fall for you - unless you are sure you will be ready to take responsibility for her and her brood, doing this is sick sick sick. (Heck, Kang Ha's feeling is a genuine one for sure and he never did a pushy wooing of any sort because he realized that. He's supposed to be the emotionally-challenged one. I guess you are just evil).

I laughed so hard at you when you lunged to hug Pal Kang when you saw your brother (so he'd misunderstand) in a classic evil-other trick and Pal Kang shoved you off and yelled at you and your stupid trick failed.

Go away and die please. Take Hag with you.

No love,

- Me.

Dear Tae Gyu -

Grow the fuck up.

- Me

Dear Pal Kang -

You are awesome and a trooper and I have no idea how you manage coping with a stressful job, raising 5 kids AND dealing with 3 men who drive you insane plus an evil Hag. My hat is off to you and I adore you. But please please don't cry - I know learning your parents were murdered is horrifying, but please don't cry. It makes me almost as upset as it does Kang Ha and I can't reach through the screen and give you a hug.

P.S. When hag slaps you, please slap her back. Hard enough to break her nose.

P.P.S. He's hot, he's in love with you, and he doesn't lock his door at night. What are you waiting for? Go for it, girl, I am dying for some OTP action here!

All my love,

- Me

Dear Kang Ha -

You were totally dying to hold her and comfort her when she was crying. DO IT. Then maybe you can lean in and kiss her, too, for good measure, before I expire from all the UST.

Also, I feel really really awful for you and your incipient nervous breakdown but it has a simple solution - TELL HUG TO PLEASE BUG OFF. Your brother is a slimeball who deserves all the hurt he gets, but even if not, he is a grown-up and he will get over the birth stuff and you are still brothers whatever the parentage. I know it's hard for you to grasp that with your abused background, so get Parang to tell you about how all his siblings are not related either. Maybe he could do it ASAP if you didn't kick him out of your bedroom - and what was the point of that, pray? It made him unhappy and made you feel awful.

In conclusion - I am totally impressed by how awesome you turned out to be.

Keep up the good work,

- Me.

P.S. FOR GOD'S SAKE GRAB HER AND KISS HER AND THEN MAKE OUT AGAINST THE WALL!
