dangermousie: (Faith OTP by vierran45)


I think I figured out why I adore Faith so. It is pretty much a more adult, smarter version of Fushigi Yuugi, a manga/anime I was obsessed with years ago. Think about it - we have a cheerful heroine who has been transported from modern times to a violent fantasy world. This heroine loves to eat, is viewed as a divine symbol and the King requests her help. Her OTP is a deadly warrior with a tragic past who is beyond obsessed with protecting her. Oh, and the bad guy loves mind games, collects people with powers and has a slashtastic fixation on the hero. See? Fushigi Yuugi. Hopefully minus the death-toll.

Some caps and thoughts )

In other news, I am not watching this week's eps of Gaksital until I find out how the drama ends so, in case it ends badly, I will be prepared.

Speaking of Gaksital - being in both this and Five Fingers is doing Jin Se Yeon no favors because seeing her in two different dramas yet playing pretty much the same character highlights the limits of her range and skill. (Compare it to her Gaksital costar Joo Won - at one point I was watching him in both Gaksital and Ojakgyo Brothers and his two characters and he in the roles were vastly different). It also doesn't help that she is way outclassed by Choi Sira, Joo Ji Hoon and Ji Chang Wook. It kind of makes me wish that they got a more charismatic, experienced young actress with chops - someone like Jung So Min, Seo Woo or Im Joo Eun. I am sure I'll get over it once Gaksital is done though.

This is going to be relatively quick because I am travelling but I couldn't not cap. Especially since these eps were pretty much hurt/comfort central times a million.

Caps and a few comments here )

Btw, is anyone reading/looking at these? I am asking because if not, I won't really cap and post such giant cap dumps (though nothing will shut me up about BM utterly :P) because then there isn't much point :P

But good Lord, Shunji fantasizing he was torturing Kang To was beyond fucked up. The man is irredeemable and I just want him to die as slowly and painfully as possible...

Bridal Mask ep 23 was amazing. Not that this is news.

Thoughts and caps )

I've also watched Arang and the Magistrate ep 3 and it's official - I am in a tiny perverse minority who is not smitten by this drama. Don't get me wrong - it's gorgeously filmed and it's interesting enough, but I lack any emotional connection or involvement in it at all. My care for this people is nil. I keep reading that people were so moved by Arang's arc in ep 3 and I felt nothing. Nothing at all. I also keep spacing out during the celestia;. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy it quite a lot - I just don't really love it, the way I thought I would. Hopefully it will change though.

Gorgeous Arang caps )
