dangermousie: (B&W Chen Lin by scanky_chops)


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.

dangermousie: (HGD hug by miss-dian)
Some of you may remember my obsessing over period cdrama Four Women Conflict back in the spring.

I finally had to stop midway through because it was too angsty and overwrought even for me to take in one sitting. I mean it. FWC makes the most overwrought, makjang kdrama seem like a cheery slice-of-life romcom.



But of course, I cannot stay away for long, so I continue my foray in the world of the angstiest, most star-crossed lovers ever, the whole town full of psychos (I literally want everyone in this dead except for Playboy/Heroine) and, especially, Puppy Killer. We cannot forget Puppy Killer!



Also, I'd say that this drama gives me the worst, miserable wedding ever (courtesy of the psycho mom of Playboy) but that is not true because the winner for that title is heroine's first wedding. At least she is not married off against her will to a disgusting abuser who sells her off to a rapist on the wedding night.

Yeah, it's that type of cheery drama.

What I really want is for the heroine to snap and go on a murderous rampage through the town. I am sure Playboy will help.

I am beginning to think Playboy got his irresistible reputation and got into so many women's pants simply because he treated them as human beings.




Heroine: "Yun [childhood love] has left me. And I don't love my husband. I don't know what I should live for. I just want to end my life."
Playboy: "Live for yourself."

This. Frelling THIS.

And then he tells her by her logic he should be offing himself too because she doesn't love him, but he's very much still here and she can do it too. And he tells her she should treasure every day in her life because even if her childhood love doesn't love her, in the future she can meet someone she will love who will love and protect her, and if she doesn't love her husband, she can make money and repay the bride price and leave. It is all possible as long as she's alive.

Playboy, I just might be in love with you.

The scene where scumbag Yun just ditched her (because her abusive husband begged him, barf) and she runs out and sees Playboy there and asks him to take her away, and he does - and takes her somewhere peaceful and beautiful and keeps his hands to himself and then tells her the above - all about her wants and needs and (to use a college term) self-actualization as opposed to trying to force his love on her in psycho fashion or alternatively tell her about wifely duty like a prig? Seriously. I literally started clapping. I totally love him now. He's the only man in this whole benighted town she lives in that I do not want to murder because he's the only one who (a) treats her as a human being with thoughts, wishes and will of her own (b) actually listens to what she says (c) puts what she wants above what he wants (d) motivates her to live her life for her own benefit, above all, and that doesn't have to include him unless she decides it does.

Scene in question )

And that totally brings her back from despair and she makes plan for how she can work and repay the bride price and she makes a wish in the temple (?) and she's back to herself. YES.

Though Puppy Killer just returned to the scene and this can't be anything good. Lady, why don't you go after Playboy's two wives - presumably he's had sex with them at some point, and I don't think he's even got as far as holding hands with the heroine. Yes, arranged wives v. luuuuurve but still - priorites! Not to mention that trashing the business of the woman he loves as a way to see your ex (because he's going to rush to check on her) is really not a productive route to rekindle your relationship.

ETA: Bwahahahha, Puppy Killer, I kinda love you and your crazy. When Playboy tells her for the umpteenth time that he is sorry but he only loves heroine and he won't be Puppy Killer's lover because it would be a betrayal (which makes me wonder - if he won't have sex with sexy exie in order to be true to his OTP, does it mean he's not sexing up his wives either? It seems so. No wonder they don't have a baby yet), Puppy Killer tells him fine, but before they part, can he hug her. So he hugs her and she arranges for the heroine to walk in at the same time. Puppy Killer, there is a kdrama waiting for you somewhere! No wonder Playboy tells her she's insane.

Yeah, judgmental 'best friend', why don't you go die in a fire? Seriously, you see the lady you consider your best friend being mauled by a guy and automatically assume she's committing adultery and won't listen to her explanations and decide she's the worst evilest blah blah blah.

First, even if she has been, she's your friend! She comes first, ahead of some man you barely know. Second, listen to her freaking explanation, witch! And then she tells it to childhood love so of course he misunderstands. Ugh, witch. And childhood love goes and tells heroine how disappointed and ashamed he is in her blah blah he's not her friend any more and that now he can't blame her husband for beating her. Ugh, prig, go die! How about you trust her or listen to her explanation or stop freaking judging her? You and former best friend deserve each other - go hook up and preach at each other noon and night. Yeah, and then they learn the truth and are very sorry and are also so sorry she was so depressed and abandoned by her friends she tried to kill herself. Whatever, freaks, I hope you roast in hell. I am glad you never get her, childhood love, because you suck! And her best friend sucks worse! I love watching her pine for childhood love who is only fixated on Lanyun.

And then childhood love promises to get her a divorce and marry her (rapist has been disposed of by that point) but when her disgusting husband, who beat her and let her get raped, was all "but I loooove her, can I have her?" he just bailed. Ugh, first love, you really suck. There are no words for your sucktitude.

Oh God, I basically hate everyone in this drama except for heroine and Playboy, who asked her to marry him, again (because he assumed she turned him down earlier due to not wanting to deal with rapist's potential rampage and now the man is gone), got his heart crushed to bits when she told him she loved someone else, and took it like a man, wishing her a happy life and leaving her the hell alone, like she wanted.

Also, seriously, whoever made this has some sort of a whipping fetish. Heroine has already been whipped twice and from vids, Playboy gets whipped at some point too. At least they keep their clothes on? That's a small mercy?

Man, this is written by someone with issues. Honestly, I am enjoying this but all that unending heaping of misery on heroine has basically made me detach and numb for my own self-preservation because it's so over-the-top. I mean, past a certain point, it just makes you suspend disbelief that the character isn't just sitting in the corner rocking back and forth and banging her head on the wall (same reaction I got with Ou Chen in Summer Desire - past a certain point you just can't believe a character will go on being functional). I understand that they have to make her married life hell to justify her committing adultery (even emotional adultery) due to societal mores deciding what is acceptable for the heroine and what is not but still - tone it down.

I am glad the rapist has got punished though and became an imbecile. OK, that sentence basically encapsulates the awesome, glorious, addictive awfulness of this drama. Now I know how [livejournal.com profile] lesbiassparrow felt when she watched Stairway to Heaven - I feel dirty yet I cannot stop.
