Haven't had a chance to watch anything due to lack of subs but I have realized I need to stay out of every Faith v. Arang discussion on the internet. Mainly because even though I enjoy Arang, I am obsessed with Faith so every time I see 'Faith sucks, Arang is amazing' post or variation thereof, I get irrationally annoyed at Arang and I do want to be able to enjoy the latter - the way it's going, I am going to end up loathing it just on principle and that is not the way to go.

I wish fandom would stop comparing the two - they air on different days so are no competition for ratings and, other than being a fantasy period drama, have little to nothing in common.

It's reminding me of the bad old days of when IRIS and You're Beautiful aired (at least they were at the same slot and in competition for ratings) and the fandom seemed to have split into YAB and IRIS camps, with the former being the much more loud one and piling on IRIS like it was going out of style. I was a big fan of IRIS and all this made me go from being OK with YAB (though it would have never been a huge thing for me) to just reflexively loathing it and everything and everyone associated with it down to the last fiber of my being. All due to fandom stuff and nothing to do with the drama itself (I rewatched it years later and while I can't say I loved it, it was a cute little trifle without the fandom baggage).

So, note to self - stay awaaaaay from comparison discussions! It's like Bangel v. Spuffy - bound to never end well.
