dangermousie: (SKKS: Yoon Hee grin by timescout)



If the first episode of Dr. Jin amused me, I have fallen for the second one. I am viewing it as a cheesy romantic delight and it's hitting every shippy button I have. I mean, she sold him out to the soldiers! Because she thought he was a murderer! And then he saved her brother's life and she desperately wants to take it back! And she is the doppelganger for his comatose true love back in our time! Also, I approve of SSH being sexily tied up!




And they have gorgeous angsty shippy chemistry-filled scenes like the above!






Oh yeah, did I mention them staring at each other as he's being taken to an execution?! This drama knows what I like!

Thank you for being my very own romance novel, Dr. Jin!

Did you ever watch the trashy, cheesy, irresistible trainwreck that was jdrama Jotei, about a woman desiring to get revenge on those who ruined her life by becoming Japan's top hostess? Did you ever think this was crying for a remake?



Well, fear not! Kdramas are here to help you. Enter The Empress, the Korean remake. It's airing on a cable channel (unsurprising, with that topic), is 13 episodes, and is being subbed on viki.

Surprisingly, I am really enjoying it, one episode in. Sure, it's still as trashy as a Jackie Collins novel on uppers, But it's also ridiculously fun. I also find it much better than the jdrama because, in addition to production values being higher (not much of a feat), they have aged the characters to University age. Imagining high schoolers getting involved in these shenanigans caused my suspension of disbelief cringe and run off whimpering, abandoning me for good.

It also helps that the Korean actress, Jang Shin Yeong, is both prettier than Kato Rosa and is a better actress. Mind you, she is not winning the Baeksang any time soon, but Kato Rosa is pretty much the worst drama actress I've seen, so JSY is a glorious winner in this competition.



Also, Shota's character of devoted thug is played by the above sexy sexy bit of manliness.

I adore Matsuda Shota to bits, but there is no question the Kang Ji Sub makes a much more believable thug. I was always worried Shota would collapse in on himself if he as much as attempted to punch someone.

Because I am about to watch the (hopefully) cheesy dance romance Step Up.

Why?

1. Trailer for The Vow reminded me of my thing for Channing Tatum.
2. I love cheesy dance movies - hello there, Dirty Dancing!
3. I am a sucker for guy from wrong side of the tracks/ladylike gal stuff.
4. I have no shame.

Have a MV:



Heeeeee.

Mr. Mousie and I went to see In Time yesterday and both enjoyed it (I thought it would be an awesome pilot for a cool scifi show a la Dark Angel. *sigh*)

But this is not the post about that. This is the post about one of the movie trailers in front of it - The Vow, starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams. First off, Channing Tatum does ridiculous things to my hormones - I like my guys slightly beefy/jocky-looking and mmmm. More importantly, it's as if someone decided that John Abraham/Vidya Balan subplot in Salaam-e-Ishq deserved its own movie.

!!!!!!!

If you are not a Bollywooder, basically the plot is that Channing and Rachel are newly-weds, they get into a car accident and she forgets him entirely and he has to get her to fall in love with him again. It looks beyond swoony:



Speaking of men who make me non-verbal, Thor's Chris Hemsworth is very high on the list. So I will check out Snow White and the Huntsman just for him. Or for him and a medieval setting as I am a sucker for the same. Sadly, Kristin Stewart cannot act to save her life and am a little dubious as to how many Snow White stories do we need anyway - Once Upon a Time is currently filling my quota.



Now, too bad the huntsman and Snow White are unlikely to hook up :P

Trailer does look gorgeous though - I have never been able to refuse a medieval setting - too few movies are set then.
