You should have kept to this, woobies!



I am through 24 episodes of Chinese Paladin 3 and I have even ceased pretending I am invested or interested in anything except the secondary OTP. I've been skipping like mad to their scenes and probably missing important plot stuff but I don't care. I don't hate hero and heroine solely because they are played by Hu Ge and Yang Mi because objectively, oh boy, they are soooo annoying and immature, I want to literally smack some sense into them. Seeing that they haven't matured any in 24 eps, chances of character progress for the two of them are slim (whhyyyyyyy? Why would you get Hu Ge and Yang Mi and stick them in those roles, why????)

But anyway, each ep gets me more and more in love with the secondary OTP who are so very doomed and are enacting their own version of [livejournal.com profile] lesbiassparrow and [livejournal.com profile] calixa's drama about love that is wrong through multiple lifetimes and each time ends in more and more picturesque kind of death.

See lifetime N2.

No, it doesn't end well. But there are make-outs )

My current thing for Wallace Huo led me to dig out my eps of Love at First Fight, a cute cdrama set in the early 20th century whose heroine has been brought up as a boy from childhood and nobody, not even her father, knows she's a girl. It helps that she can kick most people's butt. Wallace Huo plays her best friend who's obsessed with marrying rich but, to his horror suddenly finds himself attracted to his best guy friend. You know, the short one who kinda looks girly. I have to say only in drama would would somebody mistake Miriam for a boy. Even with short hair and swagger, she looks 100% feminine. To think otherwise is to be both blind and developmentally challenged.

Have a cute MV:



Anyway, I saw the first couple eps a long time ago, liked it well enough, but thought it was too cracky/fluffy to keep up with it and got sidetracked. We'll see if my new crush will result in me being more obsessed with it this time around :)

And speaking of obsessions, I got to this part of CP3!



OMG. Not as amazing as the scene in Three Kingdoms but a totally awesome second.

I admit that most of Chinese Paladin 3 makes my brain leak out of my ears and I remain pretty indifferent to the main OTP. But the secondary OTP - ah, the secondary OTP is sheer perfection. Grown-up and angsty and forbidden and heroic and just ... aahhhhhhhh.

We finally got their back-story (well, half of it) when the elders opened Warrior Priest's cealed memories from past lives (yup, his and Snake Girl's lurve was so strong, he would have remembered it despite reincarnation) and - OMG!

The cutest first meeting ever and other adorableness )

And it would have all worked out just fine except for idiot priests!

Argh!!!! WTF is wrong with you, priests! Seriously!

If one of your disciples decided he wants to ditch and not become a priest but instead get married to a girl he's in love with, I have no problem with you preaching at him how love = illusion blah blah blah.

But if he still wants to ditch, let him go!!!!!! I don't think intercepting his and his OTP's letters and then lying to him she died is a proper way to get someone to join priesthood!

See caps )

That's coercion and lying and evilness and somehow I think is against your wows! Ugh. Die please, and quickly. WTF is wrong with you, this is not how you get someone to join your freaking sect!!!

Oh, and when he finds out you lied and tells you he's leaving with the woman he loves, I don't think you are supposed to send out a posse to catch them and make "the witch pay for her crimes."

Reunion awesomeness caps )

He's of age, he can do what he wants, including quit your psycho sect, especially since you tricked him into joining in the first place.

Hooray for you, you got them to commit double suicide. And you still lost a disciple, morons! Ugh, die yourselves.

Tragic and shippy and perfect. I hate you, idiot priests! )

These monks are about as righteous as monks in Return of the Condor Heroes. Ugh.

I apologize if my flist has already posted/discussed this ad nauseam - I haven't really been checking my flist for the last few days due to being sick. But Bu Bu Jing Xin, a.k.a. the other cdrama about a modern woman time-travelling to Kang Xi's court, has jut released its official MV:



Unlike the official preview which looked serious and even dreary, this is much lighter in tone, presumably set in the time before everything went to hell in a handbasket.

Clearly, the production company spared no expense - the clothes alone are enough to make any period drama lover salivate to excess.

But I don't know. I keep finding myself unenthused. It's not due to Jade Palace Lock Heart actually - I have a tendency to obsess about topics I love ad nauseam - e.g. Alec Su's Warriors of the Yang Clan are on my short list after I finish Young Warriors of the Yang Clan. I think my reasons are as follows:

1. I really like Liu Shi Shi. But I much prefer her as angsty/noble/serious/tragic heroine with deadly skills and/or issues (see LOCH, CP3, Young Warriors etc). She's OK as cutesy but someone like Yang Mi, the lead in JPLH, is better at it.
2. Nicky Wu as romantic lead. I am sorry, I tried, I really tried. I know I am shallow, but the man just doesn't look appealing as a romantic lead. He's a good-looking guy normally but the Qing get-up is absolutely the worst for him. And I've been a bit spoiled with my period eyecandy, what with CP3, JPLH, Young Warriors, Three Kingdoms etc. Sure, a lead doesn't have to be traditionally good-looking to be appealing (my favorite character in Three Kingdoms is Cao Cao and the man is old enough to be my father) but then there has to be charisma and character appeal to compensate. And I haven't seen it in the trailer, though maybe it's present in the drama itself. But as it is, I find myself fantasizing about how much more eager I would have been for this if one of my cdrama crushes was cast.
3. Chemistry. I don't think LSS has much chemistry with either of her leading men. Yes, I am a rabid Yuan Hong/LSS sorta-RPShipper, but this really isn't it - I thought LSS was fine opposite Peter Ho in Young Warriors and Wallace Huo in Iljimae. But here - I am not really feeling it.

I don't know. I could be here justifying it all day but the point is it's all trying to rationalize my gut feeling of "not being grabbed by it."

Want to see a official MV that turned me into a slavering fool and made me want to check it out ASAP? How about Iljimae, which also starred LSS:



See, this is how you do it, MV makers!

Of course, this is pretty much my own bias as in Mousie's world, Wallace Huo >>> Nicky Wu, angsty noble robber angst >>> Qing cuteness etc.

And this reminds me, I need to finish Young Warriors AND catch up with Three Kingdoms.

This is my OTP for Chinese Paladin 3.



Indeed.

He's a warrior monk, she's an immortal earth goddess who loved him in his past lifetime. But now there are swords! I admit I am on his side of this. I mean, lady, it sucks he doesn't remember you but you guys were dating in the previous lifetime! It's not too surprising! Especially since the monks sealed his memories of past life just in case he does remember despite all probability. And you know this! So this guy is a monk in this life and has no idea who you are! It's not surprising he doesn't immediately stick his tongue down your throat! And you are so consumed by your issues, you are completely ignoring what he's telling you - namely that the demon you are protecting is harming his friends! You don't believe him or take it in, even. Chill, lady, it's not his fault he has no idea who you are, and in any event, I am spoiled so I can tell you you guys are going to get your star-crossed love soon enough.

OTP OTP OTP OTP )

And speaking of OTPs, I am glad to report that modern-day Hu Ge and LSS treat each other as devoted siblings but no more. In fact, LSS is even matchmaking Hu Ge and Yang Mi. So cute! But their past life - seriously, the death scene was almost as romantic as the OTP death scene in Three Kingdoms and that one involved the official, triple-sealed OTP there.

I mean, present day character is funny and likeable and looks like Hu Ge :P but he's fulfilling a role normally given to a comic sidekick. Wallace Huo's super-competent, super-honorable, extremely deadly warrior monk is a lot more the hero type. I can't wait for a ton of angst to drop on Hu Ge's character so we can finally see the hidden awesome within.

As [livejournal.com profile] mookiehyun once commented "He's hottest when he's miserable and angsting, he's cute when he's smiling but his face is created to angst and be miserable and thus makes us lose panties."

Indeed.



Crown Prince of Jiang? MMMMMMMMMMMMM. OMG. I want a whole drama about him, and while we are at it, please make Liu Shi Shi his wife instead of his sister, because seriously, that is NOT a sibling relationship - not when she tells him she cannot be parted from him and cross-dresses to join his army and compares them to their father and mother.

A few caps of the awesome awesome character and his in-te-res-ting relationship with his sister )

I mean, I don't know, I am an only child, so maybe this is normal sibling behavior but I think not. I know they couldn't make LSS his OTP from the past life because that would really throw his present-day romance with Yang Mi out of whack, but I wish they figured out how to do so because it would make so much more sense.

I have restarted Chinese Paladin 3 (which despite its name, is not really a sequel to anything). A fantasy drama which involves saving the world, zombies, warrior monks, reincarnation, goddesses and demons, and perilous quests, CP3 is not a drama which even the most indulgent critic would call brainy or deep in any way.

But it is (a) fast-paced (b) entertaining (c) tongue-in-cheek when it matters.

More importantly, its cast is basically a who's-who of Mousie's Mainland favorites - Hu Ge plays the protagonist, a greedy and not particularly brave pawnshop employee who finds out he's a reincarnation of a banished divine general and must save the world (yes, he does grow a spine and yes, he does angst beautifully - though it hasn't happened fully where I am at, yet). Yang Mi is Hu Ge's OTP, who's literally a fruit of a goddess' longing for the banished general. She's fun and strong-willed and rather spoiled and very darling and I love her character. She and Hu Ge are pretty cute together. Wallace Huo plays the sexy and deadly warrior monk who has a star-crossed and doomed love with Tang Yan, who plays a 200-year-old descendant of an earth-guarding goddess. Apparently, they have loved each other in the past two lifetimes and it ended beyond badly both times. So when he was reincarnated this time, the monks sealed his memories of past lives because they were worried the feelings were so strong, he'd remember them despite the reincarnation. One problem - he loved her so much, the seal can't hold. Mmmmm. They are my OTP of the drama. And then there is Liu Shi Shi, a 1000-yr-old, recently awakened princess of a long-gone kingdom. She and a previous reincarnation of Hu Ge were siblings. I like them a bit too much for the sibling thing - CP3 makes me ponder if it's really incest if it's a sister and her brother's future reincarnation. Hmmmm.



Anyway, while I am not too madly in love with Hu Ge's 'present day' character (I like him just fine, much more than I would if he was played by anyone else, and I am sure once he starts being gritted-teeth heroic, I am going to be hook, line and sinker), I am completely obsessed with his previous incarnation as the doomed Crown Prince of the doomed Kingdom of Jiang. He's honorable, good fighter, angsty, close to his sister (perhaps a bit too close?

Have a general CP3 MV (deaths in it are from previous reincarnations so I don't think this one is spoilery).



In other news, watched ep 29 of Young Warriors of the Yang Clan which was generally happy and amusing (stuff with Seven made me LOL) but Pan Renmei's daughter is clearly turning into a worthy Pan in her obsession with Six, which cannot be good.

I have restarted Chinese Paladin 3 (which despite its name, is not really a sequel to anything). A fantasy drama which involves saving the world, zombies, warrior monks, reincarnation, goddesses and demons, and perilous quests, CP3 is not a drama which even the most indulgent critic would call brainy or deep in any way.

But it is (a) fast-paced (b) entertaining (c) tongue-in-cheek when it matters.

More importantly, its cast is basically a who's-who of Mousie's Mainland favorites - Hu Ge plays the protagonist, a greedy and not particularly brave pawnshop employee who finds out he's a reincarnation of a banished divine general and must save the world (yes, he does grow a spine and yes, he does angst beautifully - though it hasn't happened fully where I am at, yet). Yang Mi is Hu Ge's OTP, who's literally a fruit of a goddess' longing for the banished general. She's fun and strong-willed and rather spoiled and very darling and I love her character. She and Hu Ge are pretty cute together. Wallace Huo plays the sexy and deadly warrior monk who has a star-crossed and doomed love with Tang Yan, who plays a 200-year-old descendant of an earth-guarding goddess. Apparently, they have loved each other in the past two lifetimes and it ended beyond badly both times. So when he was reincarnated this time, the monks sealed his memories of past lives because they were worried the feelings were so strong, he'd remember them despite the reincarnation. One problem - he loved her so much, the seal can't hold. Mmmmm. They are my OTP of the drama. And then there is Liu Shi Shi, a 1000-yr-old, recently awakened princess of a long-gone kingdom. She and a previous reincarnation of Hu Ge were siblings. I like them a bit too much for the sibling thing - CP3 makes me ponder if it's really incest if it's a sister and her brother's future reincarnation. Hmmmm.



Anyway, while I am not too madly in love with Hu Ge's 'present day' character (I like him just fine, much more than I would if he was played by anyone else, and I am sure once he starts being gritted-teeth heroic, I am going to be hook, line and sinker), I am completely obsessed with his previous incarnation as the doomed Crown Prince of the doomed Kingdom of Jiang. He's honorable, good fighter, angsty, close to his sister (perhaps a bit too close? I sort of wish one of them was adopted and I could ship without guilt) and I sort of wish the whole drama was about that incarnation.
