I woke up with the desire to watch Bull Fighting with Mike He and Hebe Tian. I just want something shoujoish with kissing :)



Last time around, the heroine drove me around the bend, let's see if I feel better about her this time.

OK, the hiatus?

So did not happen. I am addicted to LJ.

Anyway, I have a lot of posts I want to do: (a) more on Resurrection; (b) one on secondary guys and gals who got promoted to leads (who doesn't love an underdog?); (c) one on my favorite OTPs (nobody does romance the way Asian dramas do it); (d) teflon hero phenomenon (the thoughest of the tough seem to reside in Asia and emerge miraculously undeformed).

But ehhh, I don't feel like being positive so instead let's do this:

Who are your LEAST favorite hero, heroine, and couple in dramas.

Enter behind the cut to find out who Dangermousie loathes )

Who are yours?

OK, I was reading on soompi that Lee Jun Ki is losing weight for his upcoming drama Iljimae (about historical robber-type person). Whaaaa? How? Why? *flails unhappily* I mean, he was totally FINE in Time Between Dog and Wolf and unless he parked himself in an all-you-can-eat joint since then, does not need to lose any weight at all. WTF? I don't want him to turn into Korean Kame. Argh. WTF????

Speaking of historical robber-type people who look positively scrumptuous, I am still obsessed with Hong Gil Dong and in absence of subs for eps 7 and 8 have taken to haunting the Soompi thread for HGD. It so gets better with each ep, doesn't it?



Rambles on ep 6, with pics )

I have not really started on any drama, because I am still under the total thrall of Legend and so can't really concentrate (nor want to). So instead I spent some time catching up on Bull-Fighting, which is very much my [livejournal.com profile] lesbiassparrow(tm) drama: I don't care for most of the characters, and the emo amuses me, and so does the crack. It is very popcorn-enjoyable though.

I have progressed from utter loathing of the heroine (seriously, before, I had a few heroines I didn't care for, but I never loathed one before) to just plain not caring about her. I think this mellowing out is due to more sleep making me less cranky.

Still, I would not mind if she fell into a well and drowned so I amuse myself by making slash scenarios of the two male leads. The drama makes it awful easy:



More samples behind cut )

I am pleased to learn Mob Enforcer Guy (my favorite character, the only one I actually like) gets an OTP of his own eventually, instead of just continuing to pine over useless heroine. Whoever his chick is, she can't be as bad as the heroine, so yay.

And I close with this adorable Legend gif. How could you not love them?

Yeah, I am picspamming, but look at it this way: it's pretty angsty men. And my snarky comments about same.

So here is a big Bull-Fighting picspam from eps 2 and 3.

Fun here )

I honestly think that Bull-Fighting is my Jotei (which I plan to start tonight btw). So totally silly and mockable, but so totally irresistable.

I am on ep 2 and it's official.

I hate Hebe's character. She is spoiled, selfish, thoughtless and completely obnoxious. To everyone.

Ugh.

I am seriously wishing for Mike He and Lee Wei to run off with each other instead.

If she is supposed to come across as cutely funny, it ain't working. I just want to spork her until she goes away. I feel horrible that with all his antisocialness, Mike He seems to be against hitting women back. Because...

UGH.

Please tell me the little bitch gets better.

Seriously, in RL I'd hate her, and on screen she isn't much better either.

Currently, she is bucking for my least favorite drama heroine ever, which is a huge pity as I adore both main male characters.

I only find her tolerable in her scenes with Mike, because not only is there awesome chemistry (is there a leading lady with whom he doesn't have chemistry, seriously?) but he is the only one who is not afraid of her, or impressed by her status, or thinks she walks on water. And he is the only one she loses her smugness with sometimes. On rare occasion.

I want to stab her. Seriously.

YES.

ETA: TPTB, you did something wrong with writing and casting, if when she is surrounded by bloodthirsty school gang who are pissed off at her, I can not only totally see where they are coming from, but am actually rooting for them to beat her to a pulp.

ETA 2: Now the little bitch caused Mob Enforcer Guy to be horribly whipped. Seriously, can she move away to US or something and we get a new heroine in the next ep? PLEASE.

You guys, you know my extremely low standards for heroines. I'll be OK with almost anyone. She managed to break even those low standards. She is the first drama heroine I actually loathe.

ETA 3: great, we now have flashback to child abuse. I am glad to see that getting Mob Enforcer Guy beaten for Heroine's horrible wilfull actions seems to be a long-standing tradition. Seriously, I don't ship them anymore. I like him much too much for such a horror of a SO. Pity is, I like Mike He's character much too much for be OK with him being afflicted with the Heroine, too.

ETA 4: Frelling Bitch. I am seriously one step short of trying to climb into the monitor. (What particular scene brought this on? The one with her calling up Mob Enforcer Guy. If you saw it, you'd know which one I mean).

ETA 5: Mike He, whyyyyyyyyyyyyyy? Why do you want to go rescue her? She's been horrible to you since the moment you met, she doesn't know how to apologize when she should, and she is the one who got herself involved. if people keep rescuing her, she will never learn. The only explanation is you got hit in the head severely some time recently. WTF?

ETA 6: I don't even hate her any more. I've hated her for so long that I think I burned out and subsided into a dull state of disbelief that someone that horrendous is allowed to roam free, instead.

ETA 7: it's a miracle. I don't hate her anymore, but the end of ep 3. Mind, I still don't like her one way or another, but at least she stopped giving me ulcers.

ETA 8: BF, it's not cool to steal one of the most famous scenes from Meteor Garden almost shot for shot. It was much cooler when Ah Si was letting the gang beat him into unconsciousness to protect Shan Cai. Sorry.

Bull-Fighting (apparently this is slang for a basketball match) is sheer, sweet, fiction-crack: like a saner, less zany version of Magicians of Love (the only drama which was too cracky for even me).

One ep in and I love it like Cong Zi, the smoking hot Enforcer, loves his 'Missy,' the mob boss' daughter he is supposed to protect.



I love the secondary mob flunkies, who are not too bright and a little addicted to bizarre clothes, but entertain me a lot. I love the art design for this drama (a very urban look, if it makes sense). I love the bizarre, only-in-a-twdrama combination of slapsticky hilariousness, evil families, love triangles of doom, and also basketball, business conglomerates and the Mob.

I love Mike He's rich/violent/messed-up Ruo He in this one. True, he plays the arrogant bad boy he can do in his sleep by now, but he isn't bratty at all in this one and I am always drawn to the icy alpha types who just need that good (or in this case, Mob heir) girl to warm them up.

Above all though, my heart belongs to Lee Wei's Mob Enforcer, Zi Cong. He is just so awesome I am in a little puddle in a corner. He will go to bat utterly, protecting Hebe's character, standing up to the mob boss father. He will be the one to remember she forgot her inhaler (she is asthmatic) and have it with him. He will be the one to know she isn't feeling well and matter-of-factly give her piggyback rides. And I think I died a little when he was all concerned about her acting out her anger on people who incurred it (because let's face it, if Mike He's character wanted to give her a beatdown, he so could have) and so he told her that when she is mad, she should just spend her anger on him. *dies*

The only thing I don't love, actually, is Hebe's character, Sheng Xue. She is bratty, and spoiled, and kinda childish. It makes sense for her to be so (she is, after all, the daughter of a powerful Mob Lord, with people to do her bidding and no one to mess with her) but it doesn't make her likeable. I am fully in agreement with Ruo He's seeming assessment of her as half-groupie (though not in that way :D), half-kid. If Zi Cong wasn't so good at protecting her from everything, including herself, her father would have already come down on her like a ton of bricks. Girl, get some common sense!

A bit more on heroine type )

And here are some screencaps to prove the awesomeness.

Basketball, piggyback rides, and horrible fashion of doom here )

In conclusion: I like Mike He, I don't mind Hebe and I AM MADLY IN LOVE WITH LEE WEI.

The end.
