dangermousie: (Capital Scandal secondary otp by meganbm)


Halfway through the first episode, Conspiracy in the Court stopped being confusing and overwhelming (the subtitles which read like they were straight out of Chaucer did not help) and just clicked, becoming irresistable, "must marathon" phenom. I think that happened about the time when I discovered the heroine of this is a former noblewoman, uprooted from her family, finishing her punishing training, and now a deadly assassin hell-bent on overthrowing the government even as her soul erodes bit by bit. Think as if the heroine of the drama was a medieval Sun Hwa (IRIS) or maybe a feudal Sang Joo (Capital Scandal).

CitC is an eight-ep 'experimental' drama made by the director of upcoming Chuno and I finally got spurred to push through it to see what Chuno might be like. Based on the first ep, if the PD is consistent, we may expect something (a) very grim; (b) complicated; (c) gorgeously-shot - it's an amazingly shot drama, especially seeing that it must have been on a shoestring budget.



I sort of gave up trying to follow which political party wants which, so what I got was that there is unrest in the Kingdom, poor are, as always, poor, corruption and court competition flourish. Into all this, come our three heroes - our heroine is a former idealistic noblewoman whose family got destroyed and who got rescued from God-knows-what horrors by a 'gentleman' who trained her to be a perfect assassin - something she both hates and does gladly as it helps to build a better world. One of our heroes is an illegitimate son of a nobleman - he has a lot of promise, but stubbornly insists on "wasting" (as per Daddy) it in the police beaureau. He and Heroine used to be in love before whatever happened to her family happened and she disappeared, and they clearly still have feelings for each other. The other hero was some sort of a butler in heroine's household and is now a revolutionary. A sexy scruffy one.

Seeing that the policeman just discovered all these corpses mysteriously piling up, I foresee collision and tragedy and death for everyone.

This drama is ridiculously gorgeous!

Love triangle in happier times )

Heroine transforms into a courtesan for one of her assassinations )

Seeing that I am on a period drama kick, I think I will check out 8 Days for deep and plotty reasons:



ETA: Apparently there are rumors of having Kwon Sang Woo be the star of IRIS "sequel". Mmmm, yes please. KSW tortured and bleeding and emoing all over while blowing things up? Hell yes. I adore him and yet he hasn't been in anything in years I've been really into.

Plus, the dude is HOT:

1. The latest rumor about Shall It Snow on Christmas, the drama by A Love to Kill writer with the director of Bali (my heaven, as far as angsty dramas are concerned) is that it's going to be So Ji Sub who will be the male lead opposite Han Ye Seul's heroine. SJS is certainly more age-appropriate than Lee Min Ho. If this is true, I have such mixed feelings. On one hand, I am ecstatic - SHS isn't only a very good actor but is also sex-on-a-stick. And a bigger, much more experienced star. There is no arguing that casting him in Christmas is trading up. But! I really really wanted to see Min Ho in a drama which could actually use the talent he has. I am terrified he will end up in teenybopper-Group8 drama hell. I mean, he could become the next Joo Ji Hoon (minus the drug scandal, hopefully) - someone who came to fame in a popular teenybopper fluff (though Goong >>>>> BOF, times infinity) but then did really interesting stuff or...he could star in the Korean remake of It Started With a Kiss. *shudder*

2. Chuno thought of the day (because, yes, it's gotten THAT bad and obsessive) - you know how BOF had the F4 for the teen set? Well, Chuno is basically giving us an ahjumma F4. Or at least this ahjumma's - Jang Hyuk, Oh Ji Ho, Lee Jong Hyuk, Kim Ji Suk. All in period gear and desperate and using swords. YES.

3. I am too terrified to anticipate IRIS because if I get any more excited, I will explode.

4. I started Conspiracy in the Court. I am about half an ep in. It's beautifully shot. I get a bit lost sometimes because I know nothing about politics of the period and it is really heavy on that - I go "who is that", "how is this related to that" etc etc. Also, the subs, while excellent, try to convey the archaic, formal language these people speak but it throws me out of the story - I mean, when's the last time you heard "pullulating" or "varlet" in every day conversation? I do find it interesting and will continue.

dangermousie: (Damo OTP by miss-dian)
It's sick how excited I am for Chuno. I can't even concentrate on what I am watching, because I just want to watch Chuno instead. This is sort of a problem, seeing that it won't air for 4 months, at the earliest.

But that is really all I can think about. It does not help that not only is it going to be manageable length (24 eps) but that everything I read about it, every bit of news, gets my anticipation higher and higher. It's making me anticipate another Damo - both because of class issues but also because I was obsessed with Damo.

I find it interesting that all the main characters seem to be "out of place", either because like Jang Hyuk and Oh Ji Ho, they have been forcibly and violently displaced from their privileged place in society to some low depth, or because, like Lee Da Hae, they are disadvantaged that have been suddenly and unexpectedly raised up. I like where the story can go with this unstability. (Once again - shades of Damo's displacement, with both Ha Ji Won and Kim Min Joon being formerly noble children forced into slavery/rebellion and Lee Seo Jin forced to drift between two worlds, as an offspring of a slave and a noble).

I also love that for such an understandably male-heavy cast (the story deals with rebellion and slave-catching, which were, I am sure, largely male activities), the women characters they have seem so intriguing.

First we have Lee Da Hae, in an oddly dual role. She is a slave in Jang Hyuk's household. They are in love with each other but she runs away/disappears (it's unclear which). It might be connected to the night his house burned down to the ground due to actions of a vengeful slave (not her, obviously) and his family died, it might not. All I know is she resurfaces some time later, living as a daughter of a noble family and under a different name. I wonder how she got to that position. And I know that Jang Hyuk is still in love with her and searches everywhere for her. The inherent tension in that relationship is fascinating - he might love her but he is now a slave-catcher by profession and she is, for all intents and purposes, not only a runaway slave but a fraudulent pretender to a station she does not possess. If her true status is revealed, she loses everything - so his very presence is a danger. And if she is undiscovered, she is far out of reach of someone formerly noble but currently impoverished and little better than a slave himself.Even if he would not betray her (who knows), the tension between what he does and her very essense is enough to doom any relationship. And, of course, there is an issue of why she did not try to find him herself - she might have loved him, but it couldn't have been happy to be the family slave. That's got to bring resentment to the table in a major way on both their parts (for him because of her leaving him, for her because of the fact who he was).

That is so very wonderfully messed up.

And of course, there is the fact that Oh Ji Ho's general-made-slave falls in love with her. I wonder how and why they meet. I wonder if, because of her past, she is kind to him and that is why he falls in love with her. They are basically two sides of the same coin - she is a slave who is turned into a noble, precariously. He is a noble who is made a slave, unjustly.

I don't know if she will continue to love Jang Hyuk or fall in love with Oh Ji Ho. Does it matter? It's going to be wonderful either way, and seeing that my usual predictor for an OTP (the guy who has the most miserable past gets the girl) won't work here, as both the men as so messed up, I predict it all ending in a pile of corpses.

But then there is also Kim Ha Eun as Sul Hwa, the other major female character. I find her endlessly fascinating - she is the one woman in Jang Hyuk's slave hunter gang. I am not sure whether she possesses fighting skills or is someone who does domestic-type stuff. What I find interesting is that, like the rest of the characters, she is someone displaced and forced into despicable actions by her surroundings. Before becoming part of the slave hunter group, she used to sell herself to survive. No wonder she sticks with the group - it's better than what she had before. Apparently she falls in love with Jang Hyuk but won't act on it because of the whole "used to be a whore" issue - whether she feels unclean in general or because trauma associated with men. She sounds so very damaged and so interesting. I wonder if she allows herself to like Jang Hyuk because he is so monomaniacal about Lee Da Hae, she feels safe.

Oh, I am speculating speculating speculating and the drama isn't even anywhere nearing airing yet. I am going to drive myself bonkers.

I think I am off to watch Conspiracy in the Court before I drive myself completely insane.

Oooooh. Doctor Who. Why are you so awesome?

Finished ‘A Girl in the Fireplace.’ I don’t know if I like it. While the bits about the Doctor being always lonely and losing the ones he cares about to death and concealing it and never letting the loss show, where awesome, the pacing was off that the structure…I don’t know, it didn’t work for me.

But then I got to the Cybermen two parter. So much more my thing. I love it to bits. Am in the middle of second ep and eeeee!

Brief thoughts )

Unrelated, but: OMG.

Jumong is scary-addictive. I also realized that it’s 80 eps long, each one over an hour. My GOD. Even if I skipped sleep and watched 4 hours a day, it would take me three weeks to finish. Whoa.

Anyway, it’s a good thing I watch it by myself because otherwise yelling at the screen thing like “dieeeeeee’ (at the Sorceress) or ‘It’s your Dad! It’s your Dad!’ (at Jumong) would probably get me locked up in a cushy padded cell.

Because. OMG. OMG.

Haemosu.

OMG.

spoilers through first half of ep 6 )

And I bring you some youtube Jumong vids:

Jumong vids )

In other news, I always need a drama to look forward to. ISWAK2 is too far away, so I picked a fall drama: Legend, about a legendary (huh ;)) Korean ruler, which looks full of battles and politics and angst.

I went looking for vids on youtube, not expecting to find much, because the drama doesn’t air until September and it’s still filming. I guess I’d forgotten how popular Bae Yong Joon really is, because there are tons of vids on there. Insane. Apparently he’s been doing movies and it’s his first drama in five years, so fangirls are going rabid (also, I finally know why he grew his hair out so long. It’s for this drama).

Some vids )

Also, because why not, a couple of MV’s from Wallace Huo’s Emerald on the Roof. I don’t think it has subs though.

Couple of cute mvs )

P.S. Almost forgot, does anyone know what Hansungbyulgok is about? It’s an eight ep period kdrama currently airing and it looks pretty.

Some pics )

But then I got to the Cybermen two parter. So much more my thing. I love it to bits. Am in the middle of second ep and eeeee!

Brief thoughts )

Unrelated, but: OMG.

Jumong is scary-addictive. I also realized that it’s 80 eps long, each one over an hour. My GOD. Even if I skipped sleep and watched 4 hours a day, it would take me three weeks to finish. Whoa.

Anyway, it’s a good thing I watch it by myself because otherwise yelling at the screen thing like “dieeeeeee’ (at the Sorceress) or ‘It’s your Dad! It’s your Dad!’ (at Jumong) would probably get me locked up in a cushy padded cell.

Because. OMG. OMG.

Haemosu.

OMG.

And I bring you some youtube Jumong vids:

In other news, I always need a drama to look forward to. ISWAK2 is too far away, so I picked a fall drama: Legend, about a legendary (huh ;)) Korean ruler, which looks full of battles and politics and angst.

I went looking for vids on youtube, not expecting to find much, because the drama doesn’t air until September and it’s still filming. I guess I’d forgotten how popular Bae Yong Joon really is, because there are tons of vids on there. Insane. Apparently he’s been doing movies and it’s his first drama in five years, so fangirls are going rabid (also, I finally know why he grew his hair out so long. It’s for this drama).

Some vids )

Also, because why not, a couple of MV’s from Wallace Huo’s Emerald on the Roof. I don’t think it has subs though.

Couple of cute mvs )

P.S. Almost forgot, does anyone know what Hansungbyulgok is about? It’s an eight ep period kdrama currently airing and it looks pretty.
