1. Respond to everyone...

2. Catch up on The King 2 Hearts eps 13-14, Love Rain 11-14 (bliss!!!) and Queen In Hyun's Man eps 5-6. I am putting aside The Equator Man to binge when it's done.

3. Clear up and post caps of eps 3-4 of QIHM - such a perfect, shippy, gorgeous drama. And Bung Do is such an amazing hero - smart, good, laid-back. Yoo Inna's heroine is wonderful and loveable too.

4. Read Cassandra Clare's latest in Mortal Instruments series, "City of Lost Souls." I eat up that series and the angsty angsty lurve between Clary and Jace with a big spoon. Though I think the premise of CoLS, in which Clary's used-to-think-he-was-her-brother-but-he-wasn't boyfriend gets possessed by her demonic-real-life-brother and there might be make-outs, reaches the levels of insanity not seen since CLAMP or Vampire Knight. Bring it on, people!

4. Start Sherrilyn Kenyon's "Born of Night," the first one in her League series. Love me some space opera, love me some romance, loved the other book in the series I read, and also met the protagonists of this one in the other book and thought they were awesome. The super-tall, super-strong invincible half-human former assassin and tiny dancer gal/daughter of a president that he rescues and who can wind him around her finger is a scenario made for me. Plus, I know Kenyon, h/c is going to be out of this world.

5. Finish Lauren Kate's "Fallen" quartet, at least the three books that are out. I am a sucker for paranormal romance YA (ummm, paranormal romance in general) and got 2/3 through this on my plane ride. Addiction! In Fallen, Luce, our teenage, sent-to-reform-school, seeing creepy visions heroine, finds out that she is one half of a super-doomed, super-punished couple - she keeps reincarnating over and over and over through the centuries only to die at the moment she and her equally punished OTP get together (he is a powerful sort-of-fallen angel and his punishment is to stay alive and remember everything only for it to happen over and over again no matter what he does). They are in their own cdrama! Only this time, she's not been baptized or brought up in any religion, so if she dies, that is the end, no reincarnation or anything. And a lot of supernatural bad guys are interested in that. On plus side, she also didn't die when they got together. Now, if she can only keep staying alive! Anyway, I love it to bits and ship the OTP. The whole thing would make a fun CW show but I am glad it's been left alone because you just know the makers would stick her with bad-boy Cam and not her OTP (see Vampire Diaries, adaptation of...).

6. Sleep. I am so jetlagged.

The long trailer for Queen In Hyun's Man (which premiered today) made me want to hyperventilate and watch this thing raw:



It looks gorgeous, romantic, twisty, and not quite like any other drama I've seen. Ahhh. I need this in my life!

Any idea if anyone subbing it? Anyone at all?

dangermousie: (Capital Scandal secondary otp by meganbm)



No surprise that this was another gorgeous ep, though I confess wishing just a tiny smidgeon more time was spent on our young lovers (I am clearly insatiable when it comes to them).

You can tell how much Hana throws Jun off-kilter and despite his trying to fight it (not picking up her call, 'showing off' by having model shoots when she shows up, etc.), his fight is hopeless. He does all sorts of things he normally never does - apologizes, chases after her, ditches nightclubs and pick-ups. You are a goner, boy!

But I confess my favorite scene in this episode did not involve them - it was the heart-stopping last scene between In Ha and Yoon Hee, when they pass each other on the street, and who she is registers just a bit too late for him, but then he takes off running and they meet. So much emotion and longing there. While with Hana and Jun it is a start of a romance - uncertainty, prickliness, one step forward and two steps back, with In Ha and Yoon Hee it's old love denied, and it's immensely powerful.

(Caps of two gorgeous scenes with two gorgeous OTPs) )

One of the things I really love about LR is the way it shows the fall-out of a love affair gone wrong. In a lesser drama, YH and IH's unfulfilled romance would have existed in a vacuum, but it is not the case here. We don't really know much about Yoon Hee's husband and married life other than he's dead and, seeing how warm and well-adjusted Hana is, Hana's upbringing and family atmosphere must have been good. But it's different with In Ha. The fact that he could not let go of Yoon Hee, could not open up again, wrecked more than his life. I never liked Hye Jung and she certainly went into the marriage with eyes wide open - she knew In Ha loved Yoon Hee and still went for it, and that is after crazy secondary girl antics. But Hye Jung of 70s was a fun, hopeful girl even if spoiled and solipsistic. The Hye Jung of 30 years later is a (sort-of-former) alcoholic who has been robbed of any promise of her youth by incessantly yearning for and trying to manipulate the man who feels no love for her. No wonder Jun has trust issues and views romantic love with all the enthusiasm of a man finding a bug in his soup - he grew up with an emotionally distant father (that scene with Yoon Hee is the first time we see older In Ha truly there) and a manipulative, desperate mother who did not respect herself because of love and who used her son as a way to try to get her ex-husband back. Yeah.

I am exhausted, so have some caps from eps 7 and 8 without much in the way of comment.

I really loved seeing everyone, especially Jae Ha (these eps really belonged to Lee Seung Gi) coping with the new world.

I still fail to see the necessity of the (implied) sex scene - the emotional climax of the whole episode (let alone that scene) was Jae Ha actually finally allowing himself to break down and crying in Hang Ah's arms, allowing her in closer than anyone else ever. Sex just seemed not necessary at that point - sure, if they were a couple together for a while, who had sex many a time before, it would be fine. But an OTP's first time (and Hang Ah's first time ever?) entirely off-screen, as an afterthought, is kinda bizarre. Plus, having comfort-your-SO sex as a first time is really quite depressing. Ugh. The more I think about it, the less I like the choice. It was wrong for the scene, wrong for the romance, and wrongish for the characters. The only reason I can think of is that they wanted to have a baby in the future for plot reasons or something but still - first of all, I don't like baby plots in thrillers/romances, and second of all, there should have been a better way to get there and have a sex scene that meant something.

(Anyway, enough griping, have some caps) )

Seeing that I gritted my teeth through most of ep 7 with extreme fast-forwarding, motivated by a bizarre sense of duty, I think it's time to call it quits.

The fish-out-of-water humor is gone and nothing I like replaced it. I find family and business and whose-mother-is-that entirely tedious (the mother mess is likely what was the final strike), the teletubbies somehow got dull, and even the only two characters I previously liked - the leads - are now boring me. Plus, I have to face that while Yoochun and HJM had plenty of chemistry with costars elsewhere, there is close to nada here.

Oh well, Queen Inhyun's Man is about to start so maybe I will have a time-travel replacement.
