Oh, Jae-Min. Seriously, I think he’s replaced Gong-Chan as my number 1 kdrama boyfriend, even though while Gong-Chan would be an awesome guy to bring home to mother, Jae-Min most emphatically is not. In RL, I would never want to be around such a messed-up woobie, but hey. It’s drama land, world of pink shirts and fur collars on men, and women who bicycle in stilettos. A certain leeway is expected. (Hey, my other kdrama boyfriends are a mobster in love with his stepsister, a math genius who feels such guilt for a death of a friend he becomes a low-level boxer, a Crown Prince of Korea who is so withdrawn and reserved he is borderline unfunctional, a boyish but capable DA for the city of Seoul, a laid-back quirky chef wannabe, a girly looking former playboy, an immature but sweet actor and an unemployed violent guy out for revenge. It’s clearly a mixed bag).

Another interesting thing is that this is a very rare drama where I am rooting for the main ship (Jae-Min/Soo-Jung) mainly because I adore the guy and want him to get what he wants. I like Soo-Jung OK, but it’s rare for me not to fall for the heroine as hard as for the hero: usually, I either adore both or am rather blah on both.

Spoilers through ep 13 )

And unrelated and unspoilery. I find it interesting that in kdramas, the rich guys drive those huge blocky SUVs. I guess because space and gas are so expensive, it shows status.

I have also looked at my manga/manhwa reading roster and yikes. It’s a mile long. Here it is, in order of preference.

Long manga ramble )

And a little pic to end the day. It exemplifies both everything that is wrong and that is right with Bollywood.

WRONG; WTF is with the outfit? Who wears a tie on a bare torso?
RIGHT: Shahrukh Khan! (aka my favorite actor ever) Without a shirt!

I was going to post about the awesomeness of Something Happened in Bali eps 10-12 but I am barely awake enough to type. And I've been too busy to even watch ProDai ior Second ep of Liar Game.

So? For tonight? All I am going to say is Jae Min >>>>> anything.

Good Night.

OK, something gotta give. I cannot possibly watch all the currently running (or dramas which finished but where subbing is in progress still) dramas on my list. Not with completed dramas I am watching/want to watch, with Farscape rewatch, with Bollywood and books and manga and anime.

Even if I did nothing but watch drama all day (which I cannot), there are not enough hours in the day.

So? Something gotta give. Not only am I not starting any new dramas (running or completed) until I finish half of the ones I am watching, but I am going to postpone a bunch of the ones currently running that I want to watch.

Ramblings on watch roster and what is getting cut )

I’ve been moving through Something Happened in Bali like crazy.

Up though ep 9 of Something Happened in Bali.

I have so 'fiction-fallen' for Jae-Min, it's not even funny. In-Wook bores me (fastforward button was invented for his sullen mug and quiet demeanor) and Young-Joo (the fiancee) should be drowned somewhere, but OMG. Jae-Min hits all my fictional buttons. Yup, definitely Loganish. GUUUUUUH. (Soo-Jung is OK but I really wish she'd make up her mind).

The bit where he calls her in the middle of the night (and goes through a lot of trouble to get her number) to tell her he doesn't want to talk to her? LOL. Adorable. Also, girl, I know you are dense, but when he sees that you are both locked in the office building and he brings you back to his office and lets you spread out on the couch and makes you coffee and then sees you have fallen asleep and because he knows you are cold (the heat is turned off for the night, and she had no time to get her coat and now can't get to it), he gives you his coat and spends the night huddled in his chair? Pssssst.....he likes you.

I also loved the bit where she stopped by his house after work to find out info on that guy who owes her money but his mom and fiancee were there and Mom called Soo-Jung human trash and slapped her and Jae-Min just shoved his Mom out of the way and went after Soo-Jung (quite a contrast to In-Wook who pretended not to notice her when he was in company). And the scenes that followed, were awesome. Because she is in so much pain (being called trash is not high on list of fun for anyone) and he is freaking out because she is and because she is crying and he can't stand it, and he tries to apologize and/or drive her home but she won't let him and she finally gets home, hours later, and he is waiting for her there in his car and he tries to apologize but he really doesn't know how and it's another fight and then she goes into her house and he is knocking on the door, saying sorry, and knocking and she won't open up and he just starts hitting his head against the door. HOT.

Oh, and the evil family gets her fired and he freaks (that's why I really love him, he is incapable of concealment) and even confronts his father over it and GUUUUUUH.

He actually is very Loganish in a way, and not just in being an offspring of a rich, abusive family. He really has this huge capacity for caring and love but he really has no idea how to express it due to his upbringing. And also? He can be a total goofball :D

OK, finally managed to remember the name of the 'other guy' in Something Happened in Bali. In-Wook. I really don't like him. Don't care for sneaky, underhanded, scheming people.

Jae-Min might not be Prince Charming but he doesn't dissemble at all. And OMG, the scene at the restaurant when he took Soo-Jung too and it was bloody expensive and he let her believe it was her treat and then when he saw how she only ordered soup was all 'I was going to treat you since it's your first day at work...' and before he had time to finish she was all 'can I see the menu again?' Heeee. And then he got all pissed and jealous at the sweet way she was talking about In-Wook and just left (after paying). LOL. Dude, you should recognize what you feel, sweep her off her feet etc etc. Otherwise you'll get what happens at the end of this drama.

And then we get to ep 7 and I was squealing at the screen like a little piggy. Seriously. Best scene ever. I love love LOVE it when drama!men lose their cool.

Sorta incoherent ep 7 squeal )

OIn other news, of all the mangas I am currently reading, Vampire Knight is my favorite. (If it keeps on going the way it has, it will be second favorite, period, behind only Ayashi No Ceres).

I've described it elsewhere but think of a manga take on Buffy, a little. The artwork is gorgeous, the story complicated (for synopsis click on the linked post), the heroine is awesome, and I am madly crushing on Zero who is sort of a mix of Angel, Spike and Awesome.

I found a Zero/Yuki vid on youtube that is spoilery through first five volumes and is a good example of the artwork.

Youtube vid )

Another manga I am adoring? The loony, awesome Wallflower. (Summarized here. And I found squeeful spoilers.

Wallflower spoiler summaries for 13-17 )

And that's not all. I found summaries/scans for Volume 18 here. Glee.

Just some scans here (courstesy of [livejournal.com profile] mz_d)

Scans )

And I conclude on some anime stills.

I am marathonning Something Happened in Bali like crazy. I am already halfway through ep 6.

A big chunk of the reason for my love? Jung Jae-Min (portrayed by Jo In-Sung). Oh, how can I not go for a troubled, arrogant woobie bad boy? Seriously. In RL, I would never ever but in this drama I am totally riveted. I've found myself audibly exclaiming 'You are adorable!' at one point. It's a 20 ep series so I am forwarding through bits (reading subs) but I definitely don't forward when he is on screen. He has amazingly expressive eyes.

I am probably insane but he reminds me (a very very little bit) of Logan from VM.

Thoughts on SHiB )

I am also three and a half episodes into Taiyou No Kisetsu with Takki, and thoughts on it are behind the cut.

Tiyou No Kisetsu thoughts )

And in unrelated news, here is proof why Bollywood celebrities are so much more fun that Hollywood. Yesterday was the wedding of Bolly superstars Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan. The media frenzy was insane. Think Brangelina times 30.

And here is what the groom was wearing. Compare to a tux. See. Bollywood rocks.
