I am in the middle of working on my ginormous "2010 drama year in review" post (it will take me weeks and only in part because a few dramas have yet to premier) and, to my shock, I realized that Bad Guy has ended up a winner in a number of 'favorites' categories for me.

So, have a post.

I don't think I have such a complicated relationship with any other drama this year (or any other year, for that matter). Usually it's a pretty straightforward love/like/meh/dislike categorization for me. Even with dramas which evoke different feelings in the beginning and the end (Boys Over Flowers, Powerful Opponents) my ultimate overall feeling for them is fairly uniform. But not so with Bad Guy which refuses to submit to categorization.

I realized that I would have no problem recommending BG to others even though the last third drove me insane (I am still not sure whether it went into tailspin because of Kim Nam Gil's unexpected enlistment, the episode number cut, or the writers doing crack in the writers' room - my bet is on all three - given more time to flesh it out, even what the drama started doing could have been more palatable, if KNG could stay, they wouldn't have to rush, and the writers were certainly on something). Because what BG is, to me, is a grand, fascinating, magnetic failure - not the masterpiece that could have been, but even with all its flaws still miles above the usual inoffensive mediocre stuff kdrama world churns out by the dozen every year.

There is the story - it's as if someone threw Mawang, Bali, Resurrection, Que Sera Sera and La Dolce Vita in a blender and made it work for 2/3 of its run. When this drama was good, it was amazing, better than anything else on this year with its almost claustrophobic intensity. When it was bad...oh well.

Then there is the acting. Bad Guy had literally the strongest acting ensemble I have seen in years. Kim Nam Gil made a cypher not just interesting but someone you actually cared for. Kim Jae Wook stole the drama (and my heart) - I have seen him before but I never knew he could be like this. His tortured, spoiled, fragile, hurtful, abused Hwang Tae Sung is, hands down, my favorite kdrama character this year (I saw so many shades of Jo In Sung's character in Bali in him). I never knew Han Ga In could act before this drama but her good-at-heart golddigger really won me over. Oh Yeon Soo was her amazing self as a tightly-wound, neurotic, love-starved woman. Etc etc etc - everyone in the cast was uniformly excellent. Even when the script went, they maintained how good they were.

It was also, hands down, the most beautifully shot kdrama I have ever seen. And the direction, soundtrack, pacing, design - they were all out of this world.

So, yes, ultimately a failure. But still, even its lack, better than 90% of dramas out there.

So. The ending of Bad Guy.

Is the most idiotic thing ever.

I am done. There is no way I am finishing something this stupid.

So, ep 16 of Bad Guy came out and apparently in it it is revealed that what I suspected is indeed true - Gun Wook is the "real" Tae Sung, i.e. President Hong's biological kid. My main thought on this was - OMFG - poor poor Tae Sung (i.e. the 'new' one, Kim Jae Wook's character). That is truly horrifying - basically he got dragged away from his nice-looking and loving mother to be dumped into the nightmare Hong household to be completely screwed-up and broken and brought up with no love but a nice heaping of emotional abuse, and it was all a result of a total lie - done by Mrs Shin as a way to get rid of real biological kid. He has nothing to do with the Hongs whatsoever yet they totally ruined his life and fucked him up and they are not even his family and - oh man, if he wasn't broken enough already. ARGH!!!!!!!! That really is truly truly awful. He could have just been brought up in Japan by his Mom and grown up nice and well-adjusted and loved and happy. ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!! If they don't give him at least a hope of a happy future after all of this, I am flying to Korea to strangle the writer myself.

I am not particularly interested in Gumiho Girlfriend, which starts next week, but that doesn't mean August is a dead month for me, as far as kdramas are concerned. In addition to continuing with Baker King and finishing Bad Guy (unless the latter really screws up its ending), here are the three dramas I intend to check out this month:

I Am Legend - I like the cast and I like the kooky premise (a divorced high-society wife returns to her roots as a wannabe rocker) and the two minutes I managed to check out before viikii shut down on me seemed delicious. BON is subbing it. Or viikii has it, if you would rather stream. First two eps are out.

Gloria - I am in it for the writer (who did delightful Pick the Stars, How to Meet a Perfect Neighbor, and Family Honor) and for its leading lady, the criminally underrated Bae Doona. Plus, the story of various not-too-well-off friends and neighbors involving singers, gangsters, and illegitimate rich kids, sounds right up my alley. 50 eps is a bit long but on a weekly basis should be doable. Plus, Gloria promises me this:



Bring it on! Haru Haru fansubs are subbing and viikii has it as well. First two eps are out.

Giant - this drama has been airing for a while (I believe it's in mid-20s) but I initially had no intention of checking out this revenge-driven family saga despite the positive reviews I've seen on-line because it usually requires something extraordinary to get me to check out something this long. I was also not familiar with anyone in the cast and thought the leading man, Kim Bum Soo, was almost agressively ugly. But just a few days ago, wily [livejournal.com profile] ockoala informed me that the main love story reminded her of East of Eden's one and if you know me, you know how I was obsessed with Dong Chul/Grace. Further digging informed me that the protagonist of Giant is apparently in love with the daughter of the man who killed his father. That really got my attention. And the below vid convinced me that while KBS will never win a heartthrob status from yours truly, he looks well enough on film unlike in pictures. Withs2 is subbing.



So, that's my August. Yours?

This was sheer perfection.












It's gotten to the point where I am actively irritated it's Gun Wook and not Tae Sung who is the main character. Not really because of shipping (though they have many more shippy scenes than the ostensibly main couple of Gun Wook/Jae In and the chemistry between Kim Jae Wook and Han Ga In is ridiculous, compared to lack of such between Kim Nam Gil and Han Ga In) but because there is a much bigger problem - a problem with the entire drama in fact - it's that the character of Gun Wook, the protagonist, is the least interesting of the bunch. We are supposed to root for Gun Wook to get what he wants - whether it's the girl or his vengeance but I cannot. I don't find him likeable but, more importantly, I don't find him interesting or relatable at all. A big reason for it is that he is so static - he has not changed or grown one bit (nor has there ben some revelation to put his character in a new light). Jae In of ep 11 is not Jae In of ep 1, the same is true for Taera, Tae Sung, Mone, etc. But Gun Wook - he remains exactly the same. And that is BORING. When you add in the fact that right there, next to him on screen, is Tae Sung - who is dynamic and unpredictable and sympathetic, Gun Wook just becomes even more boring by comparison. I find Gun Wook the weak link of the story and it's a problem - he is the protagonist!

Anyway, I am not watching more BG until I know how it ends but I couldn't help myself and watched a bit of ep 11 :)

Apparently Oh Yeon Soo (who plays Taera) posted on her twitter that "We shot scenes overnight for Bad Guy, and now I'm on my way to shoot at another location. Gun Wook, Tae Ra, Jae In, and Tae Sung... I feel so bad for them all. My heart breaks for them... Even when I'm done shooting, tears still come out." (trans soompier)

Argh! Can I hope that her heart breaks because they all really really wanted ice-cream and the store was all out?

Actually, let me be blunt - I don't care about what happens to Gun Wook and Tae Ra - Gun Wook brought anything bad on himself through being a vengeance bunny and while I sympathize with Tae Ra, I am not emotionally attached to her. If they get killed by insane Madam Shin or squished by a speeding truck or eaten by the first alligator Seoul has ever seen outside the zoo, I will feel mildly sorry but I will be totally fine. Heck, if that means Tae Sung and Jae In will be fine, I'll sacrifice them gladly.

Because yes, drama! You can do what you like to GW and TR but don't you dare destroy my Jae In and Tae Sung. They haven't done anything wrong and I love them to an unhealthy degree. I don't even mind if they don't end up together, but they better have some hope for their lives being good at the end.

Grrrr. That is what I get for (a) falling for characters in a vengeance drama and (b) starting a vengeance drama before it's done and thus ending is unknown.

1. Official trailer for My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox is out:



It looks much less horrific than the short preview but incredibly unappealing to me just the same. Wacky OTT comedy and I don't really mix. As of now, my main interest in Girlfriend is for it to end so that Daemul can start.

2. I was worried My Princess would be scrapped because the same writer is currently doing Secret Garden but it seems to be still on. Yay! If nothing else, with Song Seung Heon and Kim Tae Hee, it will be the prettiest cast in existence. From what I can gather, the plot revolves around SSH being the heir of some really ginormous fortune - but the grandpa, current possessor of the fortune, decides to give it all to Kim Tae Hee instead, for reasons to be explained. SSH is stuck grooming his replacement for the public and apparently is wondering (presumably wrongly) if KTH is a long-lost grandchild of granpa (fakecest, give me fakecest, pls!) Anyway, I hope this does go through and I am looking forward to it, if for no other reason that I want to enjoy a drama where SSH doesn't get beaten within an inch of his life in every ep and Kim Tae Hee doesn't suffer horrific tragedy.

3. [livejournal.com profile] clairiere posted awesome news - it look like Jung Joon Ho is set to be the male lead in the Queen of Housewives sequel. I think this drama just got added on my to-watch list.

4. I have NO shipping interest in Gun Wook/Jae In (I honestly do not see the chemistry or the narrative interest - bring on Tae Sung/Jae In instead, please) but this was such a pretty moment - the way the drama is shot is incredible.
