I might pick up Take Care of the Lady again but my enthusiasm for it is gone - it's the biggest disappointment of the year for me. My interest in Dream fizzled likewise. I might catch up on it sometime but it's a mediocre drama at best.

There are some recently ended dramas I must catch up on: Friend (best of the year, so far), Swallow the Sun (Ji Sung!), Princess Ja Myung Go (criminally underrated).

What I really feel in the mood for is a Korean period drama that is not too long, has court intrigue, politics, and a side of doomed love. I might pick up Emperor of the Sea or Return of Iljimae or Bichunmu or Jumong again. I might check out Conspiracy in the Court, Eight Days, or Yi San. Or rewatch Kingdom of the Winds.

But it all conceals the evident truth: what I really want to watch is Chuno. The more I read about it, the more ridiculously, feverishly excited about it I get, but alas, it's not coming out until January, and very possibly, March. ARGH.

There are, however, four dramas this fall which will, hopefully, tide me over nicely until then. IRIS (which I have talked about so much there is no need to blabber further), Strange Heroes (or whatever title it is this week - it has Lee Jun Ki and other cast I approve of, even if my interest dropped off significantly once I found out it's about journalists), Angel's Temptation (Bae Soo Bin in a plot involving revenge, plastic surgery, and other insanity), and, You're Beautiful.



It is the latter I want to blabber about - a story of a rock band called A.N.Jell - a four guy rock band one of whose members is actually a cross-dressing girl and the other three members do not know it. It sounds as if it's made entirely for me. It also might be the first time I have found Jang Geun-Seok attractive (usually he is too weird or too girly or too Emo Prince for me to go for). Here he is behind cut )

I am still working on my responses to the '5 things' meme - so fun.

Also, I am keeping up with Dream (finished ep 5) even as it makes me feel so dirty for liking it - there is no doubt it's a trashy trashy drama - Kim Bum and JJM act well but there is no doubt, it's total junk. Still, I cannot stop!

God, Son Dambi is so AWFUL.

I just might have to add to my very small list of drama actresses I cannot stand. For all I know she may be the best singer in the Universe and she has certainly worked out in the gym enough but oh my God - watching her try to act is painful (so far the only thing she can successfully imitate is a tree - she is wooden enough) and, even worse, she has no screen presence or charisma at all.

It's like this good-looking empty space, sort of like a female Dennis Oh. It's horrifying. It gets ridiculously stark when she is in a scene with either Joo Jin Mo or Kim Bum, either one of whom could probably outact her in their sleep. But honestly, even the tertiary character actors outact her without trying.

Please, Danbi, go back to singing and never ever act again. Please.

As for this drama, I have no idea if Danbi is supposed to end up with either of the guys but for now, I want JJM and Kim Bum to end together :D. At least that won't make me pass out from boredom having to look at Danbi's horrifying attempts at acting.

I am almost done with episode 3 of Dream and I am really enjoying it - it's delightful popcorn - it has no pretensions to being anything than a fun bit of fluff but it's ridiculously entertaining.

So far, the only character I genuinely care for is the young fighter - Kim Bum. Joo Jin Mo acts well but his character isn't exactly loveable and Son Dambi - well - she's pretty no more no less.

Actually, if it wasn't for the slight skeeviness of it, I would totally ship Kim Bum and JJM's characters in a slashy fashion - seriously, JJM gave KB a piggyback ride and clearly Kim Bum is going to be JJM's ticket to redemption and caring (he was all emo when he heard about Kim Bum's tough life from KB's friend) and JJM is going to be KB's way out of the slums and to some emotional stablity. Totally OTP :P

Indeed.



I don't think I have ever seen drama fanservice this blatant.

Episode 2 of Dream (which I am halfway into) confirms my previous opinion - Dream is not a great drama. Nor is it a classy one - it is clearly pretty trashy. However, if you define "good" drama as drama that can keep you entertained, than Dream is definitely good - I have a notoriously short attention span but Dream managed to keep me very entertained so far. I haven't fast-forwarded at all, which is pretty impressive - many much better dramas fail to do that.

Continuing my adventures in watching things for shallow reasons (seriously, I have Friend on my HD, and that is one of the few rare drama things which I could claim is a masterpiece, without being ironic or deluded, so why am I watching this instead?) I checked out the first episode of Dream and I like it, even if anyone who claims it's art of any sort would have to get their head examined.

Dream revolves around three people - a ruthless shark of a sports agent (Joo Jin Mo) who has been sacrificed to preserve his agency's reputation and has to start from scratch, a juvenile delinquent with an uncanny right hook and a broken home (Kim Bum), and peppy and wholesome sports instructor (Son Dambi). The agent is going to train the delinquent I am sure. Not sure how the gal fits in yet.

The first episode was majorly enjoyable - I was not bored once. That was due to the following things:

1. Joo Jin Mo remains one of the most gorgeous men I have ever seen. Seriously. He is also a very good actor. I loathe his character (I am supposed to) though I am glad the end of the episode, where he got out-manuevered and out-ruthlessnessed by his boss and you see him desperate and shocked for the first time indicates that there is hope for him yet.

2. Kim Bum - for me, so far, the drama is all about his character. At 19 or so, Kim Bum is much too young for me to swoon about (though if viikii frenzy when he first appeared on-screen was anything to go by, he does not need my swooning as the swooning hordes are already immense) but I do think he is a very good actor - one of the best out of the younger ones out there. Whenever he is on screen, I get a little more invested - he's got charisma to burn, but he also can act, as he's proven in East of Eden (almost stealing the show from the rest of the huge and awesome cast, IMO) and by being one of the few things that got me through the horror that the ending episodes of Boys Over Flowers became (by the end his and Ga Eul's relationship was the only thing I cared for - the main characters invoked only loathing). Here he's got a lead role and a character I like. I am so very set.

3. Fanservice. This drama isn't subtle about it. The amount of shirtlessness is immense and blatant. Bring it on, say I!

I know Son Danbi is polarizing, btw, but I have no opinion on her yet - she hasn't had much of a role so far, so all I can say is she is pretty and I like what little we have seen of her character.

I don't think I've mentioned it, but I started Dream, the Kim Bum/Joo Jin Mo starrer about a fighter and his agent.

I really do like it so far (half an ep in) except there is one HUGE problem - I loathe loathe loathe Joo Jin Mo's character and he is the lead. JJM is hot and can act well - but his ruthless, blackmailing, uncaring user of a character needs to DIAF. Now.

The man does shower well though, I must admit.
