This was going to be a much earlier post, but then the end of ep 12 happened and my heart sort of died.

But eventually I revived enough to cap because this stretch of eps is simply amazing and I felt I had to make a post on them.



So here it is, better late than never.

Caps and thoughts on my favorite scenes )

I really wish more people on my flist were watching this - this is such a solid, well-written and phenomenally-acted drama. I know thought of 26 eps and politics may seem off-putting but the politics brings a dark, complex overtone, the leading characters are amazing, the supporting ones are interesting, and the love story is to die for!

1. The fantasy/comedy/melodrama (yes, all of these) Secret Garden about an icy businessman and a tough stuntwoman who swap bodies and fall in love starring Hyun Bin, Ha Ji Won, Yoon Sang Hyun and Lee Philip starts this weekend. They released this amazing, swoony MV. Oh, I am melting just thinking about it.



One distraction - Hyun Bin is normally drop-dead gorgeous, but he really needs to eat here!

2. The trailer for the drama about lives of college students in a musical department, What's Up is finally out. I am very excited in part because Im Ju Hwan is the lead and that man deserves more fame than he has, but even more so because it is written by the writer of Eyes of Dawn/Sandglass/Kaist/Legend/Slingshot, i.e. a woman who has yet to write a bad drama. I love the vibe of the trailer.



It is a bit weird to hear "This is the Moment" in Korean :)

3. This one is a bit mixed for me - the upcoming drama about the stockmarket, Midas has just landed Mr Intense, a.k.a. Jang Hyuk for the leading role!!!!!!!!! (So much more my thing than his earlier rumored now squashed participation in Poseidon). A fly in the ointment - Lee Min Jung is the leading lady. Now, I know a lot of flisties like her, but she is my least favorite drama actress bar none. I will grit my teeth and ff through her scenes and, who knows, maybe a miracle will occur and I will like her.

So far, these are the dramas I am following:

M/T dramas - the charming, quirky, irresistable Mary Stayed Out All Night and stomp-out-my-heart Giant are both a go. I also have the first four eps of Queen of Reversals all raring to go as soon as I finish my Gloria marathon. I love the cast so if the story is halfway decent, I am in. Which means I will be watching three M/T dramas, which is sort of insane. No Dr Champ for me though - it sounds about as much fun as eating paint.

W/R dramas - only Daemul for me. Love it so much. Fugitive is a waste of time and I can't even remember the name or actors in the MBC drama, that's how little it interested me.

S/S dramas - my obsession and true love Gloria. Plus when Secret Garden starts, it is a must (though I will wait for a batch of subs). I want to check out Let's Get Married, which is in full swing, because of the wonderful Lee Jong Hyuk having (finally) a leading role, but it may have to wait until a slot opens.

Random question - why are there no dramas on Fridays and what do they show then?

ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The two kdramas I am following are both making me tear out my hair.

First, Daemul. How dare you do this to Do Ya, evil pig people! (I am referring to dirty politicians, not the writers :P) He's lost his job and is in jail and omg evil evil evil evil evil evil EVIL. I am so fucking mad! How dare they! He really worked hard at and for his job and was really good at it and it was a perfect fit, and now both his career and his life are basically over, all because he tried to fight the corrupt political machine. ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH SO FUCKING MAD. I am a little too overinvested in these fictional people.

Second, Giant. My Min Woo/Miju! You know what is the cherry on top of the angsty sundae for them? Fucking Daddy Satan gets the birth test for Wooju faked to indicate he is not Min Woo's son. WHAT THE HELL?! As if Min Woo is not fucked up as he is, now he is going to believe the one person he ever loved and who he knew was true and good, basically the sole light in his bleak life, actually cheated on him??????? HOLY FUCK. And poor Miju. Even though Miju pushes him away (stop it, silly! You guys can't live without each other), this quite different from her having to put up with his viewing her as a cheating slut. God, my OTP. My poor screwed-up OTP. If after all this mess you do not give them a happy ending, I am flying to Korea, God help me.

Yes, way overinvested. But then I didn't need that heart anyway.

Perfect mirrors:




I think Daemul is a perfect lesson in how your drama expectations can often be wrong. When it was first announced in 2008, I was a giddily excited fangirl. The drama (finally out in 2010) turned out nothing, nothing like I expected, and yet I love it madly, obsessively, ridiculously.

In my defense, when it was first announced, all I knew was that the manhwa this was to be based on was about the first female President of Korea and the gigolo her political enemies hired to bring her down (he was interested because of some revenge-related issues). Any plot/vibe similarity between that story and the story of a rising and idealistic female politician and her incorruptible prosecutor BFF/potential OTP - i.e. what the drama turned out to be about - is pretty marginal, one has to agree. (Yes, kdramas are known for their crazy plot twists and Daemul is scheduled for 26 eps, and may possibly get an extension if its insane ratings continue, but to imagine Do Ya becoming a gigolo, especially a gigolo dedicated to wrecking Hye Rim, requires more imagination than I currently possess).

So yes, entirely different beast, but I love it so very much. Its functional OTP in the middle of all the dirty politics, really makes it shine.

You know, there are no words for how much I love the OTP of Daemul. It would be so easy, with poorer writing, with poorer acting, to turn them into almost propaganda cliches - she is an idealistic politician fighting for the rights of her fellow citizens. And he is the hard-charging prosecutor, fighting corruption whenever he finds it.

And the thing is, the above is true, but that is nowhere near the sum total of it. No, they are nuanced flesh-and-blood people - she is often afraid, angry, at the end of her rope, and she pays for everything with flesh and bone. And he is boyish, eccentric, a whackjob, really and with so much open warmth and vulnerability I just want to bask.

And they are perfect for each other. I mentioned some time ago that the two main romantic modes in a kdrama are "they bicker/fight/hate then fall in love" and "he worships the ground she walks on." The latter is by far my favorite (which explains why romcoms are my least favorite genre - they tend to overwhelmingly prefer the first mode). And Daemul is such a great example - I love the way he loves her. It's just so total - he is always there to support her but there are no big dramatic gestures (not even when events themselves are dramatic - as when he gets stabbed in front of her). No, he is just there for whatever she needs, without making romantic demands because he knows she may still be grieving for her husband. And the thing is, she is worthy of such devotion - she is an amazing person but she also cares back for him, fiercely.

Caps of shippy amazingness from eps 5-8 )

Daemul, you are officially amazing.

1. I honestly do not get why the King of all of Joseon, who has plenty of advisors and loyal officers decides to use 4 college students to help him locate the all-important document that will change the course of history. I mean - bwah? Yes, even if the document is on premises of the University, how about using his pet advisor/prof? Seriously, he needs to use hormonal kids? I do not get. I also find it pretty off-putting that he desires to use Sun Joon when he knows this will force SJ to go against his own father. Ugh.

2. I don't understand complaints about Sun Joon not being angry on finding out Yoon Hee is a girl, especially when they use Han Kyul's reaction in Coffee Prince as their justification. Leaving aside the not-insignificant difference that HK is an impulsive drama queen and Sun Joon is a very reserved, reasoning, measured person, the situations are entirely different. For one thing, Sun Joon is the one who dragged Yoon Hee into the situation which forces her to hide her gender all the time. Let me make it even clearer - if YH reveals her gender, she and her whole family gets beheaded. Han Kyul did not unintentionally put YEH's character in that situation - this is the modern world and the most that could happen to her is she'd lose her job and she can find another (and in any event, HK wasn't responsible). Also, and this is a huge difference - they start dating and YEH still does not reveal her gender - HK finds from someone else. Sun Joon and Yoon Hee are not dating and she was actually going to tell him the truth as soon as he confessed his feelings (and he didn't find from others about her gender, either). Not to mention relief of 18th century nobleman about him not being gay thus being allowed to have a normal life and nor harm object of his affection either is huge compared to someone dealing with issues through 20th century prism. Anyway, short version. It all made sense to me.

Just an FYI: I am currently watching Chinese Paladin 3, Daemul, Gloria, Giant, SKKS, Joseon X-Files, Soulmate, Nagareboshi, Guilty, That Love Comes, Shanghai Bund. So those are ones I am going t blabbing about.

Do Ya is so awesome with Hye Rim's kid! *squishes*




Just finished ep 4 of Daemul. I love this drama so so very much. Don't mess it up, show.

Also, am I getting this straight? A senior politician thinks that fitting punishment for a prosecutor insisting on interviewing him about a corruption case, as per procedure, is to have that prosecutor stabbed to death in front of (the woman they wrongly think is) his girlfriend. WTF!!!!!! What would they have done to him if he'd charged the politician? Hung, drew, and quartered him?

Seriously. Eeek.
