I have all of The Outsiders subbed now. I foresee a huge binge.

But this is not the post about that. It is a post about two other things. First, it’s a plug for a really underrated drama: Witch Yoo Hee.



I know that response to Witch Yoo Hee has been mixed. The thing is, it’s a good drama, but it’s not a great one and I can see how it can be frustrating as you can see how with some tweaking it could have been. Especially since Jae Hee doesn’t do many dramas at all, so for this Jae Hee fangirl, you want it to be super awesome (but then hey, 16 hours of ogling him on screen is OK with me, too).

Its biggest fault seems to be, in the eyes of detractors, that it’s largely ‘amiable characters in search of a plot.’ Admittedly, that might very well be true: this drama is too enamoured of all the characters it created and doesn’t seem to be able to let got of any of them, and thus it’s not as focused as it should have been.

But I don’t mind it at all as all the lovable, kooky characters are so entertaining that I could watch them all year, from Yoo-Hee herself, who is someone Sunako from Wallflower or Kyoko from Skip Beat would have been if they were grown-ups, to Moo-Ryong, the charming oddball who is completely incowed by Yoo-Hee, to Yoo-Hee’s employees and friends and even the delicious, though decidedly self-absorbed surgeon-childhood-love-of-Yoo-Hee played by Kim Jung Hoon.

How can you really go wrong with an awesome art design and clothes and lighting? A yummy, fun cast with great chemistry, sharp exchanges and swoony moments between the awesome heroine and one of the most adorable heroes to hit kdramas in recent times? Throw in just a little pinch of angst and you got the fun that is WYH.

Yeah, it’s not tightly scripted and more focus on Yoo-Hee/Moo-Ryong love story and development would have been better. But who can resist such fun? Not I.

And secondly, it’s a bunch of yummy angsty Lee Junki pics. More specifically, it’s pictures from the upcoming drama Time between Dog and Wolf. The other guy isn’t hard on the eyes either, btw.

OK, confession time.

A big part of the reason I prefer kdramas above all others is not because of awesome visuals, or very emotional storylines, or even the occasional clothes misstep of doom.

It’s because of…gasp…the men.

Yes, while I find some Japanese and Taiwanese actors very attractive, generally, for me, kdrama boys are where it’s at. Maybe because they tend to be the most masculine-looking of the lot. Or maybe it’s the cheekbones or the fact that they are tall (of course, Taiwanese ones are too).

Anyhoo.

Phew.

That felt better ;D

So, for those wondering, a little, highly biased kdrama men primer behind cut with photographic evidence.

Actually, it’s merely part 1 as I kept expanding and expanding this one and the task would be otherwise never ending. Part 2 will come.

Here are the first 15 men, no particular order.

Primer here )

Part 2 to come. To include Won Bin, Joo Ji Hoon, Dennis Oh, Daniel Henney, Song Il Gook, Kim Jung Hoon etc. I am accepting suggestions.

OK. I knew the Logan/Veronica spoilers for the finale for quite a while.

But sort of rereading them is making me see RED.

As in *stab stab die die stupid TPTB*

Spoiler and ranting )

And yet my dramas never disappoint. On the other side of the spectrum, I just read some Que Sera Sera spoilers that made me GLEE. Angry makeouts are a fiction MUST. I really need to pick up watching that…Hmmm, I want to see if anyone is uling QSS in jdramas. If not, I should do that. But yes, it's GOOD.

I love this shot, so surreal:



More traditional mush:



Plot: The most romantic melodramas often make it appear as if a love story can be the end of the world for the people involved, but reality teaches us that is rarely the case. We fall in love, make great experiences and not so great ones, and then break up. All that is left is recover, and start again. The four characters in MBC's new miniseries Que Sera, Sera always put love way down their list of priorities exactly for that reason. A successful fashion designer (Yoon Ji Hye of No Mercy for the Rude), a reserved planning director (Lee Gyu Han of My Lovely Sam Soon), a spunky clerk (Jung Yoo Mi of Family Ties), and the most energetic of event planners (Shinhwa member Eric of Super Rookie). For them love is more like a passing joy than a life-time commitment. That is what they think until they find the spark showing them otherwise.

Did I mention the KISSING???? It's like they decided to compensate for lukewarm kissing in other dramas

QSS pics with KISSING )

Some QSS MVs:

Also. Glee! If in love…like them ep 1 subs are out!!! YES. And also, apparently fansubbers are working on Punch! a 2003 drama with Joo Jin Mo and Shin Min Ah, about a girl whose older brother was a boxer and a guy who accidentally killed him and he feels bad so he becomes her surrogate brother and they fall in lurve. YES.

My Proposal Daisakusen dl is at 40% now. YAY!

But that is not what the post is about. It is about my poor impulse control. Oh no, oh no oh no.

I cannot possibly be starting another drama. My drama list is already psycho (way over ten, [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore :D) and that is only dramas that are completed.

My ‘currently airing’ dramas list is insane. The ones I am watching or planning to catch up shortly are: Witch Yoo Hee, Hello Miss, Thank You, Que Sera and The devil for kdramas (that is five, people. Five!). Summer x Summer, The Kid From Heaven, The Lucky Star and I plan to start Rock Paper Scissors and From Corner With Love (though with those two I’ll wait until they are completed so probably off my list). Plus KO1 which isn’t new but is progressively started subbing, so sort of is like new ;) And Yamapi’s Proposal Daisakusen starts today and Bambino in a couple of days. And I haven’t even gotten to KimuTaku’s ‘Great Tribe’ or finished Takki’s R&J. ARGGGGGHHHH. But it’s a happy argh.

I thinkfor my own sanity though, I am not starting any ‘completed’ new dramas until I finish some more off the list. Actually, I think I am going to finish them and then not start new completed ones for a bit as watching just the airing ones will keep me occupied ;)

But why the long wail up top? Because despite the hefty list above, I just added another airing jdrama to the list. Liar Game with Nishikado Soujiro Matsuda Shota and Toda Erica. It is all [livejournal.com profile] calledinvain’s fault. I was mildly interested but she posted some pictures which hooked me and I read up on the plot and I am dling it right now.

Yes, yes, I know. Psycho schedule and all that. But come on. It’s Matsuda Shota and he is the lead. YES. And he plays a con artist who Toda Erika hires to get her $$$ back.

You know how I love the icy guy-sparky girl stuff? Or mobster and a good woman? Another thing I love beyond all measure? Stories about swindlers/con-artists/pretenders/revenge-seekers who get caught by emotions themselves. I love Kurosagi entirely too much, with Yamapi as the vengeful swindler who cannot keep the so awesome Tsurara out of his life as hard as he tries (seriously. SEQUEL. With kissing this time). A Love to Kill is in the running as my fave kdrama, with Rain pretending in order to get close and avenge his brother on Shin Minah but falling for her instead. And I am currently loving Taiyou No Kisetsu with Takki having all these revenge plans on his ‘friends’ but also falling for a handicapped unworldly pianist at the same time.

No idea if the trope is going to happen here but hey, the hope is good.

Besides, plot? Who cares:



More swoony stuff )

And the resident what kind of fashion is THAT shot )

Anyhoo, more detailed synopsis:

Based on the manga series of the same name, Toda Erika plays an honest college student, Kanzaki Nao, who receives a hundred million dollars one day, along with a card saying she has been chosen to take part in the "Liar Game". The aim of the game is to trick the other players out of their hundred million dollars. At the end, the winner gets the hundred million and the loser is a hundred million dollars in debt. The next day, she receives notification that her opponent is her former teacher, Fujisawa Kazuo. She goes to him, seeking help, but ends up getting tricked into handing her money over. Desperate, she approaches the police for help, but they are unable to do anything. However, she is told of a mastermind swindler, Akiyama Shinichi (Matsuda Shota), who is to be released from jail the next day. Desperate, she goes to him for help.

Though wow. Some people on daddicts thread are ‘blah blah we hated Kurosagi. Whaaaaa?’ It’s one of the dramas I am irrational about. Logically I understand there are people who might not like it. But emotionally or whatever it just doesn’t compute. I can’t process it because I loved it much too much ;)

Oooh, and I am super excited. I just found out that both Love in the City 2 (with Kang Ta) and Legend of Condor Heroes (with Ariel Lin) will be subbed. EEEE! By BON Fansubs who are super good and efficient. (They are subbing WYH and will be shortly subbing Bambino) *bliss*

Btw, does anyone know whether kdrama Crazy for You is any good?

Look at the cute pic:



The plot sounds good: Suh Jin Young is an aviation maintenance technician and her husband passed away due to a traffic accident. Kim Chae Joon dreams to become an aviation pilot but he encounters an unfortunate accident. Chae Joon goes to prison for accidently killing a man in a car accident. The man happens to be Jin Young's husband. Jin Young and Chae Joon develop a love relationship.

There are subs in progress.

Am officially dead now. See why I don’t care about how correct the history in The Tudors is:



While accessing my email, I scrolled by some news site that was discussing that Angelina Jolie plans to adopt again, from yet another different country. Good Lord, this is making me think of a menagerie, or maybe instead that one episode of Family Guy where Stewie got temporarily taken into a family of hippie, rainbow-children-collecting freaks. :P Well, I suppose there are worse ways for Brad Pitt to have a midlife crisis than to hook up with a botoxed Mother Teresa wannabe. After all, Tom Cruise is a warning and a fearsome example to us all.

Argh. I just read an article on manga that made me see red. It was saying how it’s disturbing and bad that a lot of manga features really submissive girls and pushy men. Fine, whatever, though personally I think people should read what they want (‘what are we teaching our young’ arguments annoy me in general), and if you don’t like, don’t read manga, or find one of the many many titles that have strong heroines. That’s not what pissed me off. They listed Hana Yori Dango as one of them. WTF!!!! Makino is one of the strongest manga girls out there. And yeah, Domyouji is rude etc etc but the whole freaking point is that Makino is every bit a match for him and dishes out as much as he does. He loves her because she is strong-willed and capable. It’s hardly a ‘poor weak woman putting up with an aggressive guy’ scenario. Also, one of the main Hanadan points is about Domyouji growing up and learning to be human and becoming a person. And he certainly pays for any transgressions tenfold with what Makino puts him through. Anyway. RANT. I get the feeling the stupid article author just read the first three volumes (though how she got opressed weakling Tsukushi out of it I still have no idea). Fine. But don’t write a freaking article about it, then!!!

P.S. Signs the Apocalypse is near: when on the train home you are puzzling over whether the man and woman next to you are a couple or father and daughter and at the end of almost twenty minutes are still unsure. Ugh.

While accessing my email, I scrolled by some news site that was discussing that Angelina Jolie plans to adopt again, from yet another different country.

Hmmm, is it just me or is it funny (as in ‘odd’ not ‘hilarious’) that in both dramas that Jae Hee has done (Delightful Girl Chun-Hyang and now Witch Yoo Hee), he is paired with a really intelligent, strong-willed heroine? Of course, Chun-Hyang is normal and not uber-bitch like Yoo Hee (in fact that characters don’t have much in common), but they are both successful, bossy, and suffer no fools.

The ending of DGCH just feels me with so much glee and really, for some odd reason makes me think of that quote from LM Bujold’s Miles books, where they refer to Cordelia as ‘The Admiral’s Captain’ (Cordelia is one of my favorite fictional heroines, and can be downright scary, and the Admiral in question is Aral Vorkosigan, her very very powerful husband). Because seriously, I can just see Mong-Ryong and Chun-Hyang after the drama ends. He will be this totally alpha, fearsome DA who takes down organized crime and kicks people’s heads in and is all tough and everything, but then he’ll get home and Chun-Hyang will totally boss him, and the thing I love is he will totally let her, not because he is spineless, but precisely because he has nothing to prove and he is very proud of his clever, bossy, strong-willed wife. And it would totally amuse him, too.

And in other drama news, I bring you some pics from My Love Patzzi, cute if not spectacular drama I am watching right now. Hmmmm, this is good as a ‘relax’ period, but I think I need to do a poll for which drama to start watching that will make me obsessed next.



My love Patzzi )

And I think I just found my next 'obsession' drama after the rest period of watching My Love Patzzi. I just got my hands on Snow White (also known as Taste Sweet Love). OMG!!! Bad boy Lee Wan. Trumps it all.

I found this MV for it on youtube. I dislike country music, so the soundtrack for the vid drives me bonkers, but the vid itself is cut really well and you can totally see the awesomeness of SW. Just hit the mute button for the MV soundtrack if you are country-allergic :)

Vid here )

And because I will always love and obssess over My Girl (the way I love and obssess over Goong), here is a cute My Girl MV I found. Once again, not too keen on the song but the MV is cute:

Vid here )

And to end things on an awesome note (here I love the MV and the song), here is MV for Green Rose, which is the first drama of my 'incomplete' list I will restart:

First off, because I am shortly to embark on continuing my watch of the delightful, funny, off the wall twdrama Smiling Pasta, I bring you two cute SP MVs.

Smiling Pasta MVs here )

Oh, and while we are on subject of MVs, I found another cute of of My Sister in Law is 19:

MV here )

And on the topic of eye-candy, just because, some It Started with a Kiss pics.

I defy you not to die of the sweet.

Cuteness here )

I am continuing with Witch Yoo Hee and it's mad love. A couple of unspoilery screenshots (from soompi).

WYH )

Speaking of Jae Hee, I just found out he has an upcoming movie, Zigzag Love. It also stars Shin Yi, Park Si Yeon, and Myung Seung Hoon. It's a romcom and I bring you some awesome pics which all have one thing in common: they feature Jae Hee :P I don't really know what the movie is about and find myself strangely not caring.



More yummy pictures )

Oh, and in completely unrelated to anything, I am reading 'Messopotamia' about the formation and life of the city states and it's utterly fascinating as it's a topic I know little about. The thought of cities almost 7000 years ago is mindboggling.

P.S. Yoon Eun Hye has a new drama coming out later this year. About a coffee shop. Let's hope it's better than Vinyard Man though of course it's unlikely to beat Goong.
