Do you know, once upon a time, I didn't understand the fuss over Lee Dong Gun. I saw him as the admittedly nice other guy in Sang-Do and he registered zip on my Rain-fixated radar (Rain played the lead). I didn't think he was particularly hot or charismatic or anything (though not ugly or dull either). Just the usual 'other guy.' But then I saw pictures of If in love...like them and went 'guuuuuuuuh' and then I got my hands on the movie My Boyfriend is Type B and was GONE. (I should have disliked his protagonist, who is a cheerful jerk, but instead I adored him because of the sheer charisma and peeks of vulnerability. The movie's total fluff worked because of the cast). And then followed Sweet 18 where I saw three eps and fell for the drama and his proper but very sweet DA very hard (and now am waiting until my better subbed copy gets there).

I think it's a combination of things. One is that he (like Matsuda Shota and Oguri Shun who gained in hotness between Hanadan1 and 2) grew into his looks as he got older, as Sang-Do is an old drama (and also lost a little weight, and yeah, I am shallow, but I love the cheekbones). And two? I don't know whether he suddenly acquired charm to burn or whether he had it before and I was too blinded by Rain but yeah...psycho charisma.

What is the point of the above ramble?

I present you a huge picspam of Korean drama Stained Glass, on my very short list of dramas to watch (true love, childhood friendship, identity loss, all the other good stuff). I say 'picspam' but what I mean is that the photographer clearly considered it his duty, instead, to see how many ways you could shoot Lee Dong Gun looking awesome in business and casual wear. The answer? A heck of a lot.

There are over 80 pics behind the cut, so be warned. It's worth it, though.

So, I finished chapter 98 of Fruits Basket (it's in vol 17).

And now I know Akito's big secret. And Kureno's.

And guess what? My Akito hatred is stronger than ever. It only made me loathe Akito more.

Ramblings dealing with the revelations )

Some relevant awesome scans )

As a bonus, Haru/Rin pic )

Yeah, I am in a spammy mood today.

The spam of choice? The upcoming Korean drama The Devil starring Joo Ji-Hoon (Goong), Shin Min-Ah (A Love to Kill) and Uhm Tae-Woong (DGCG).

I did a synopsis on it some time ago so am too lazy to redo it, but basically it involves: romance, killers, childhood revenge, hidden identities and who knows what else. Rumor has it that JJH plays a serial killer. If that is the case, 'hot enough to kill' (which he generally is) is a whole different thing here :)



Some pics here. Warning. May cause hyperventilation and dizziness. Seriously. He's hotter than in Goong here )

Some intriguing stuff on the plot )

And because hey, I love Lee Jun-Ki, a couple of pics from his upcoming Time Between Dog and Wolf:

More sharp suits here )

I’ve been sort of working on this post on and off again for a bit, but finally, here it is. My love can no longer be suppressed. I have fallen in love with a manga!

Giddy, gleeful, ‘oh, this is going to be so angsty and romantic and doomed’ kinda love.

The manga of choice? The Vampire Knight by the same woman who did MeruPuri which I gleed about some months back.


(l-r: Zero, Yuki, and Kaname)

But where MP is cute and cracky and fluffy, TVK is gothy and dark and angsty. But still with that gorgeous, quasi-Victorian style artwork.

The story? TVK is rather like Buffy on crack. Yes, there is fighting the vampires and schools and angsty love and awesome hair. In the TVK world, vampires exist. Some manage to live comfortably with humans. Most fight a war instead, even if the populace is unaware of their existence.

Yuki, our heroine, has no memories of her life before she was five years old. At five, she was saved from a hungry vampire by good-looking and mysterious Kaname (himself a vampire) and found herself an adopted daughter of an eccentric schoolmaster. Now 15, she is a Day Student in her father’s Cross Academy, a school that also has a Night Class, a class composed entirely of young vampires who are willing to go along with her father’s quixotic plan to bring harmony between the species. The leader of said Night Class? Kaname, the hunky vampire who saved her life and is now the object of her crush.

No students or faculty know the Night Class’ secret except for Yuki, her father, and Zero (yeah, it’s his name. I suppose it sounds cooler in Japanese), an angry but gorgeous guy Yuki’s age who was taken in by Yuki’s father four years ago, after a Master Vampire killed his family. Now he is Yuki’s best friend. Yuki and Zero do the night monitor duty: they patrol and keep both the Night Class’ secret and the Day Class’ safety. If Yuki is the starry-eyed optimist, believing in peaceful coexistence (and even finding Kaname himself hot), Zero is an intense, focused loner, someone who hates vampires and everything they represent.

But. But. But.

And here is where my insane love of this manga comes in and makes Zero my favorite character and gives me another ship in Zero/Yuki (though honestly, I have no idea if the mangaka is going for that or for Kaname/Yuki, and Kaname/Yuki seems more likely). What Yuki herself doesn’t know as the manga opens, but as she is shortly to find out, Zero himself is slowly turning into a vampire, as a result of that attack four years ago, during which he was bitten. Zero, child of a vampire hunting clan, someone who wants to avenge his family, is turning into the thing he hates most, and he knows it.

Stick a fork in me, I am done. (If you want a rather spoilery and a bit ‘eeeee, vampires are hot’ take on Zero/Yuki, with some awesome pics, go here.

The movie I am most looking forward to in the next couple of months is not a Hollywood one. Nor is it an Asian one *gasp*



What is it? It is the Bollywood movie Eklavya, starring Saif Ali Khan, Vidya Balan and Amitabh Bachchan. By the same people (and with a lot of the same actors) who made my favorite Bollywood movie of 2005, Parineeta. And the couple in that one, Saif/Vidya, are also a couple in this one, and I am in heaven.

Summary as taken from IMDB )
