dangermousie: (ISWAK first kiss by pinkfactory)
Yup, still in tropical paradise. Had a bizarre dream in which the Winchester brothers ended up on Moya, which is probably a hint I should watch more Farscape but not before bed.

Watched the second ep of Samurai Champloo which was neat and second episode of Hana Kimi which was neater. Spoilers for HK ep 2 )

I have also finished the Takizawa Hideaki jdrama Boku Dake No Madonna though judicious use of ff button. TH was excellent in it (and was angsting most prettily in the shower) but the female lead drove me nuts. That is actually a big chunk of the reason I adore kdramas and twdramas but not jdramas for most part. The female leads. Most times, I fall madly for the female leads in a kdrama (usually before I fall for the hero, actually). And most times, that's true for twdramas too. But in jdramas, with a few exceptions, I want to strangle them, and here was no exception. I totally loathed her and she never changed. Still, worth watching for vague spoilers for BDNM )

Now I am sort of torn. I don't want to watch a jdrama, so I am probably going to finish Magicians of Love. I have a mad yen to rewatch Mars though (both of which dramas I have here). I'd actually rewatch Meteor Garden which I also have here, but HYD 2 is going to start before I finish and I don't want to be confused. Helpful hints?

I still have the bulk of S2 of Farscape to get through, and Samurai Champloo, and I started Nana the anime (very pretty) but I am thinking of doramas as well...

dangermousie: (Takki 9 by hhr79)
OK, Farscape and I are clearly destiny. I am in a hotel in Curacao, and Mr. Mousie turns on TV and what do we see? "Terra Firma," my very favorite Farscape episode ever.

Oh.

My.

God.

When I am getting back from dinner, it's definitely "Mind the Baby" time.

In other news, I've discovered my new favorite manga, or more specifically a Korean manhwa, Snow Drop. It was recced by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] klmorgan who is my newest bestest friend because of it. I've bought all 12 volumes and have taken them on the trip, and oh boy, it's so worth it. Currently, I am in the middle of volume 4, and I can't wait to continue.

What is Snow Drop? The best way I can describe it is, 'Korea's answer to Mars' And if you know my liking for that manga and mad love for that twdrama, you know how just for me SD is. SD is the star-crossed, Romeo & Juliet story of two troubled teens: So-Na and Hae-Gi. So-Na is a headstrong only child of a powerful, and rather scary congressman who blames herself for the death of her mother and who regularly relives the memory of a horrfying kidnapping when she was 12. Her biggest joy is the Snow Drop plant nursery. At least until she meets, and first clashes and eventually falls in love with Hae-Gi, a fellow troubled student at her new school, who is gorgeous but isolated and doesn't let anyone close. Unlike So-Na, who was brought up in the lap of luxury, Hae-Gi is quite poor and is the only support of his family: his somewhat wild younger (and cross-dressing) brother, and his beloved mother who has been in a vegetative state for years, ever since the death of Hae-Gi's idolized older brother. There is some sort of mystery about the death and the coma, but I have no idea what it is yet. Suffice to say, even without extra stuff which will undoubtedly come up, Hae-Gi has a lot to deal with. In fact, in order to earn enough money for his mother's surgery (the latest in the series of futile efforts Hae-Gi made to get his Mom better), Hae-Gi (who, like all manga heroes is hunky with a capital 'H') has resorted to nude modeling (!) for a rich diletante photographer who is 10% about art and 90% about 'human toys.' So here we have it. A congressman's daughter and a nude model. Equally messed up. And that is only the beginning of their troubles as, suffice it to say, their families have a very dark past together. Throw in a cross-dressing brother (who is awesome), So-Na's very platonic best guy friend (who thankfully does NOT nurse an unrequited passion for So-Na), an evil bitch girl after Hae-Gi, and a complicated plot with more than a hint of angsty doom for our poor lovers (I did check the ending so I like how it ends) and gorgeous artwork, and I am in love.



A few more manga covers )

In other news, I started watching jdorama Boku Dake No Madonna, an adorable, funny, whimsical, romantic drama starring the amazingly hot Takizawa Hideaki. BDNM centers around Kyoichi (TH), who is an architecture student who decides to rent an apartment so as to have some privacy from his loving but too-close family (there is a hilarious scene in a montage of scenes where Kyoichi tries to sneak downstairs at night to watch an adult video and hastily shuts it down when his elder sister comes in, but she sees the cover and goes 'I want to watch toooooo.') Kyoichi is a normal, sweet, nice-tempered guy. In fact, that is Kyoichi's biggest problem. He is too nice for his own good, too quiet, too retiring. Too 'normal.' The girl he is dating ditches him for being 'boring,' his boss takes advantage of him being too polite and non-confrontational, and his neighbors always attempt to get into his business. Kyoichi doesn't just want to blend in, but he can't help it: he doesn't take risks, he is unwilling to offend. He is just too nice and too rule-bound. All of this is about to change, however. Because one night, Kyoichi (who works part-time at night) comes home to discover a beautiful girl, slightly older than him, asleep in his bed. It turns out that the girl is actually there to watch her ex-fiance who lives across the street. She is a bit strange, but she is funny, and free-spirited, and an odd but effective friendship/relationship develops between the two. On Kyoichi's part, it's rather more than friendship actually, and you can tell by how TH looks at her, how he leaves her meals in the fridge, how he has this expectancy of a puppy, almost, that Kyoichi is getting in deeper and deeper. As to the girl? You can tell that she has a lot of fun with him, and is beginning to rely on him too...she seems quite lonely and when they have their first fight, you can tell it hurts her as well.

Thoughts on ep 1 )

A couple of non-spoilery BDNM caps )

It's delicious and brilliant and I cannot wait to see more. And the opening credits are to die for, not just because he is shirtless.

First off a question to the lovely people of flist. I want to buy additional memory for my computer in order to keep dling all those lovely doramas. My laptop is PC, Inspiron 2650. How much memory should I get? What is a decent price? And what type of memory (I went to Amazon and got completely lost among memory types).

And now I bring you a selection of MVs as a means to convince you to watch some doramas that I haven't pimped at all before. Haven't watched them either. This is mainly for [livejournal.com profile] lesbiassparrow, to lead her into temptation. :P

Here are MVs behind cut )

Also, where do they find all those pretty boys? The male leads are GORGEOUS. Is there a lab in Asia somewhere and can one raid it?

In other news, volume 4 of Hana Kimi is great as always. Love the bit with Sano almost putting his arms around Mizuki and refraining. And I love that he is thinking 'why should I protect her?' and his answer is 'I just do.' EEE!

dangermousie: (FY: Tamahome red by jadeicons)
I have finished episode five of Majo No Jouken. It keeps breaking my heart and I can't stop watching. I've also decided that Takizawa Hideaki has replaced Vic Chou as the most gorgeous guy in a dorama I've ever seen (and it's a tough competition, trust me). If they'd ever did a live action version of Fushigi Yuugi (no chance in hell), I'd want him for Tamahome and if you know me, it's kinda a big deal :)

Thoughts on ep 5 )

In other news, I was reading first volume of Ayashi No Ceres and third volume of Beauty is the Beast ([livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore, I tried to find Basara, but the better stocked place only had Vol 4. I'll try the best stocked place I know later in the week).

BitB and Ceres thoughts )

In the kitchen sink news, I am obsessed with this song by Andrea Bocelli and Marta Sanchez. I am a sucker for duets.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: This isn't a quote but a paraphrase because I don't have the volume with me, but I think it's such a great description: 'He is the guy who comes through the emergeny exit and doesn't look ashamed.' (Description of Wanibuchi from Beauty is the Beast).

ETA: My dorama to-watch soon list continues to expand as I'd gotten my hands on Devil Beside You (a Taiwanese one, MV here) and Boku Dake Na Madonna (a Japanese one).
