So, year 2009 has been very good for me OTP-wise, providing many a drama OTP for me to swoon over.

But let's see how I did in the "happy ending for the OTP" stakes - do I go for the tragic ones that break my heart or fluffiness?

Here - obviously spoilers for endings of dramas in my tags )


Hmmm. 11/20 happy

This is my OTP for Take Care of the Lady:



Cheeky hardworking butler (r) and a human rights lawyer who's given up his rich family to pursue his cause (l).

OK, I am kidding. Sort of.

The thing is, I am not big on our heroine, Hae Na, at all. I have no patience for poor little rich girl or boy who treats people like dirt while thinking that they are owed everything because of their unearned money and wallowing in undeserved emo while being waited on hand and foot. I start thinking longingly of French Revolution and guillotines.

Now, a hardworking rich person, like Lee Byung Hun's character in Beautiful Days, I am fine with. Otherwise, the spoiled rich brat better have some genuine cause for lashing out like Jae Min from Bali - I would not want to be a member of his horrific family for any money and Bali never shies away from the fact that despite being angsty and magnetic, Jae-Min is not a loveable cuddly thing only needing a love of a good woman to fix him, but a total mess.

Hae Na reminds me of Domyouji in all his incarnations and I loathed early Domyouji with every fibre of my being. To be honest, she is even worse - Domyouji was younger and was around one of the worst mother figures ever. Hae Na is close to a decade older than Domyouji and seems to be a product of a nice enough family. She has no excuse! Her grandfather is warm and loving and treats her well, her staff jumps to her every whim, she is healthy - wtf is her problem! Boo-hoo, some relationship 6 years ago did not work out. Since when is that a legitimate excuse to treat people like dirt? (There is no hint that her ex was abusive or similar and she has some sort of PTSD).

I adored Sung Yuri's heroine in Snow Queen even when she was a horrifying bitch because there was good reason for her behavior - a deeply dysfunctional family, suicide of a loved older brother, and knowledge that she is bound to die in her 20s due to a health condition. Yeah, that makes for some lashing out. Someone like Shin from Goong might have been no picnic as a significant other but he performed all his myriad duties in a proper manner while Hae Na does absolutely nothing, spounging off her grandfather, refusing to work. Charming! Contrast her her with Anna from Fantasy Couple - Anna was a nightmare but competent and at least her being awful to the hero had some rational basis at the start.

She is not utterly self-absorbed and is capable of gratitude (the way she behaved with Dong Chan when she countermanded his dismissal after he covered for her as she asked) - she is capable of improvement. But she has a long way to go before she becomes worthy of being anyone's girlfriend.

I think her being in tears after realizing Tae Yoon wasn't her first love but someone who looked a bit like him was supposed to humanize her but I was left rolling my eyes at the fact that her wealth insulated her from anything - she caused such a scene chasing after him and then was free to sit and emote while someone else, in this case Dong Chan, was left cleaning up her mess - pacifying the owner of the horse she took, getting her car etc etc. What a contrast with something like Worlds Within where heartbreak or not, Song Hye Kyo's character still had to go to work and do her best, without even time to finish her conversation with the man who was dumping her. Or something like Thank You where, whatever else went on in her life, Gong Hyo Jin had to work in the fields, take care of her daughter and her senile grandfather, and deal with it all. Awww, Hae Na, poor little rich girl, see me weep! Whatever other flaws I am easy on in my characters (iciness, jerkiness, dysfunction, whatever), I cannot stand people who are simply spoiled.

The reason I am enjoying this drama and do not hate Hae Na is, in part, because she does have potential as a character to develop, and in part because Yoon Eun Hye is, as always, gorgeous, charismatic and a good actress, making Hae Na a real person with hidden little-girl warmth, as opposed to a nasty rich witch she could easily come across in someone else's hands.

In other news, I am very very eager about upcoming Angel's Temptation. The plot? The heroine's family is killed and her family is ruined so she decides to punish those responsible. (Now, see, Hae Na? That's a woman with a legitimate reason to be pissed!) However, instead of doing the sensible thing and hiring a hitman or maybe using a pipe bomb on their house, she...that's right...seduces and marries the son of her enemy. The logic? Is brilliant.

I adore revenge plots and this sounds so deliciously OTT ridiculous, I cannot wait. All the more so as the male lead is the scrumptious Bae Soo Bin, who you all might remember as the gorgeous Jun Se oppa from Brilliant Legacy. Mmmmmmmm. MMMMMM.

I was tearing up duing Hwan and Eun Sung's 'last date'. And then I turned it off because I didn't want to deal with what was coming (yes, I know it has a happy ending. I still dread it).

That is how you do it, people - "it" being a 'last date' where the girl knows it's the last time but the guy is oblivious. The key is for the viewer to love these characters - that is why this scene got me all verklempt and the BOF one had me impatiently hitting my ff button and rolling my eyes.

HATE THE FUCKING STEPMOTHER DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE

SERIOUSLY MY HATE KNOWS NO BOUNDS

I WANT HER TO FUCKING EXPLODE

I am watching ep 26 - I don't even care what happens to the rest of the characters, I just want that fucking spawn of satan to suffer. I have never hated another parental character as much except for Jo In Sung's father in Bali - I lived that whole drama in expectation of him getting trampled to death and was broken-hearted it did not happen.

Also, in what Universe would a guy all of a sudden fall for your daughter when he's never liked her, just because the girl he likes leaves?

Also, Eun Sung - ARE YOU A FUCKING MORON? If she is threatening these things, CALL THE FUCKING COPS!

ETA: I want her fucking daughter to die in a fire too.

Brilliant Legacy is over (don't spoil me!) but we have so much to look forward to.

NOTE TO SELF: Get a clone so you can fit in real life and all these dramas.

So, these are the upcoming Korean dramas:

AIRING

FRIEND - the most arthouse drama I have ever seen. Former friends turned mobsters played by Hyun Bin, Kim Min Joon. And Seo Do Young as the helpless to intervene in the destruction third friend in this friendship. This might be the best drama I have ever seen.

SWALLOW THE SUN - mercenaries, true and forbidden love, ANGST, tough hero who worships heroine and my huge favorites Ji Sung, Sung Yuri, and Lee Wan.

AUGUST

TAKE CARE OF THE LADY - comedy with Yoon Eun Hye as a rich girl who hooks up with her butler :P Woo-hoo! Bonus is Jung Il Woo as her fiance - I adore this guy since Return of Iljimae and will be uncanon-shipping.

DREAM - more like 'dream cast.' Kim Bum is a hoodlum who takes up professional fighting under the guidance of Joo Jin Mo. There are some ladies in it but who cares? I sure don't. I hope this one will be testosterone-fueled all the way.

HON - A horror drama starring Lee Seo Jin, one of the few actors I will watch in anything and everything. This sounds like it could be very awesome, with spirits, school girls and dead twins.

FALL

IRIS - the drama of the year for me. Arguably, the drama of the last 5 years for me. Assassins, spies, forbidden love, tough men and tougher ladies, and a cast to die for - Lee Byung Hun (finally back to dramas), Jung Joon Ho (my newest love), Kim Tae Hee (if she can act half as well as she loooks, we are set), TOP, Kim Seung Woo, and Kim So Yeon. October.

YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL - Hong Sisters, my favorite drama writers ever, are back with a drama about idol singers starring Jang Geun-Seok. This will be ridiculously awesome. October.

HEADING TO THE GROUND - Yunho and Go Ara star in a drama about a star soccer player. While I weep for the fact that it almost was Dangermousie crush's Kim Rae Won last drama before the Army, this sounds like it could be utterly fun - Yunho looks hot and I adore Go Ara. September.

CHUNO - A period drama by the writer of Conspiracy in the Court starring Jang Hyuk (OMG!) and Han Hyo Joo, and dealing with runaway slaves. I am so very there. Airing after IRIS is done. (Only fitting - of all the upcoming ones, the ones I am looking forward to the most are IRIS (above all) and then Chuno).

1. You won't be seeing any Brilliant Legacy posts from me for a week or so because in a feat of self-denial :P I decided to wait and finish the last 4 eps all at once, once they are fully subbed. I am even *gasp* unspoiled.

2.



If I find Song Seung Heon the sexiest kdrama actor (other contenders were Lee Byung Hun, Jang Hyuk, and Song Il Gook), Hyun Bin is, undisputedly (now that Joo Ji Hoon is out of the running, alas) the most beautiful (runners up are Lee Jun Ki, Bae Yong Joon and Ji Sung). Whoa.

I also have a category for ridiculously charming won by Kang Ji Hwan (with Gong Yoo the runner-up) because I have too much time on my hands and a need to categorize.

3. Speaking of Ji Sung, I was watching and enjoying Swallow the Sun but my interest in it went into OVERDRIVE when I found out that Ji Sung's character becomes a flunkie of this rich unscrupulous family and has to do whatever they say. His latest assignment is to win Sung Yuri for the rich messed-up son of said family who has an unhealthy fixation on the girl. So he has to do it, even though she's the girl he's always been in love with. I LOVE THIS SORT OF THING.



How come nobody on my flist is watching this?

Gorgeous trio )

4. Because we were on the topic of gorgeous, how gorgeous is Seo Do Young in Friend?

Here is proof )

This drama just might have the most gorgeous cast ever.
