A Thousand Days' Promise ep 2 and Five Fingers eps 19-21



Ji Ho is back for revenge and I confess I gleed and gleed as he starts destroying Momster and In Ha. It's easy to win over someone who plays by the rules when you do not, and loves you when you hate him, but now they are even in feeling and disregard for rules, and I love seeing the bad guys pwned. Also, I love Ji Ho/Dami's interactions - full of pain but also chemistry. Oh, and JJH is rocking the role.

Caps from Five Fingers eps 19-21 )

And it's official - I am in love with A Thousand Days' Promise. It's hitting all my kinks.

Five Fingers - mmm

Caught up with ep 18 and ohhh, darlings!




You break my heart!

OTOH, my main emotion was !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! at the end of the ep when Ji Ho finally snapped and went for revenge against Momster and In Ha.



Hooray! Oh, please please please let him be Momster's biological son. Because that would be so delicious.

Everything under the sun...

1. [livejournal.com profile] lb_klove has made a wonderful Faith MV here. Check it out!

2. I've watched the first episode of The Paradise and hmmmm. As a British period drama, it's good, as an adaptation of Zola's novel, I feel all the sharp edges and dark corners have been smoothed and lightened out. MMV. It suffered, though, from my watching it in such proximity to the sublime Parade's End.

3. I never did get around to doing a proper post on the last week's eps of Nice Guy, did I? Oops.



I loved the episodes - paradoxically, even with amnesia and hematomas, they felt like the lightest, happiest, most hopeful episodes so far - mainly because the memory loss (EG) and the impermanence (Maru) has, oddly, freed them to be together with no baggage. And oh, how wonderful it is to see that enormous capacity Maru has for caring turn towards a worthy recipient. The episodes reenforce over and over again how little he even thinks of Jae Hee other than as a threat to EG - he doesn't even hate her any more, he just doesn't care. I love that.

4. I have a whole batch of caps for ep 17 of Five Fingers (yes, I am a few eps behind). I continue to enjoy the drama - I see complaints about it but I think it's excellent, mainly because the excellent cast elevates the material.

I Miss You, Faith, That Winter the Wind Blows, Joo Won's upcoming drama etc...

1. One of the best things about Yoochun being cast in a drama is that his fangirls are a supremely dedicated bunch and thus you can be sure of a ton of MVs and other things. I mean, someone made a speculative trailer of I Miss You already, splicing Yoochun and Yoon Eun Hye's other dramas:

http://youtu.be/aPoVhOdQ4mY

It's utterly gorgeous. Mmmmm, I am super-excited for this drama - I love the leads and the writer to bits.

2. Speaking of fanworks, I am so lucky with Faith. The ratings for my obsession are mediocre, but the (English-language) fandom seems to have glommed on to it in a huge way. The soompi thread has over 600 pages (!!!!), we have a number of bloggers talking about it, and some very talented people are producing fanfics and vids. Compare it with May Queen, which has almost twice the ratings, yet the blogosphere is pretty dead about. This is all a long intro to a comment that I went hunting for MVs and found some gorgeous ones:



3. Apparently, Kim Bum has been confirmed for That Winter the Wind Blows. Noh Hee Kyung must have really liked him in her previous drama, Padam Padam (he WAS excellent). I've seen some fangirls upset that, once again, it's not the lead, but I really respect his choices - he keeps picking projects by a good writer which entail bouncing off some real heavyweights (in PP, it was Jung Woo Sung and here it will be Jo In Sung). I actually think these are great choices for him.

4. Last but not least, I keep wondering who will be the leading lady in Joo Won's upcoming drama. A lot of the likely candidates are busy. I think it would fun if it was Park Min Young - if I still like her after the horror that was Dr Jin, then clearly she can do no wrong in my eyes.

5. I am currently only following 4 airing kdramas - Five Fingers, Nice Guy, Faith, and Arang and the Magistrate. This is so much easier on my schedule (I dropped The Horse Healer and Oohlala Spouses, at the very least postponed The Great Seer, and I can't say I am watching Glass Mask in any consistent fashion).

Thoughts on the couple dynamics in the four kdramas I am following...

I find it interesting how the OTP of Nice Guy contrasts with the OTPs in the other three currently airing kdramas that I am following - Faith, Arang and the Magistrate and Five Fingers.

Because in the latter three, the OTP make each other better, they are functional together and their obstacles are external. It's most visible in Five Fingers, where Dami is Ji Ho's beacon of sanity, and that is why they must be forced to break up - otherwise he'd never descend into darkness necessary for revenge. You can watch only a few minutes of Eun Soo/Choi Young of Faith or Eun Oh/Arang of Arang to see how incredibly functional and functioning they are together. And the obstacles all the couples face, while huge (and possibly insurmountable) don't come from their intrinsic natures and flaws but outside forces. If these outside forces went away, you just know nothing would block their happiness - Eun Soo and Choi Young have the huge issue that she is a 21st-century woman and he is a 14th-century man and neither can live in the other's world. Not to mention an awful lot of people are trying to kill one or both of them. In Arang, the issue is that Arang has less than a month to stay in the world and, oh, a monster wants her body. In Five Fingers, in addition to Ji Ho's family being psychos out to get him, the issue is that Dami and Ji Ho come from enemy families (long story). But the thing is, if these were fixed, there would be nothing preventing OTP bliss - if the Jade Emperor waved a magic wand in Arang, got rid of the demon and restored Arang to permanent humanity, or Ji Ho's family in FF took nice pill and the family history issue was gotten around somehow, the couples would be happy together. If the bad guys in Faith were taken out and ES decided to stay (and CY allowed himself to allow her to stay), there would be little warrior babies asap. It doesn't mean that the characters do not change or grow - they do immensely. But it's a different relationship dynamic than between Maru and Eun Gi in Nice Guy where all the obstacles are really in their own head, in their emotions and baggage (OK, so this is more true for Maru than EG). There aren't really that many external obstacles. But the internal ones are almost insurmountable.

I don't think one form of narrative is better than the other. I just find the difference fascinating.

Five Fingers episodes 15-16, Glass Mask episodes 6-8



Just got back into the house so haven't had a chance to watch (or even get) the latest Faith ep or go through the comments. Instead, I am going to talk about the dramas I watched on the plane - Five Fingers eps 15-16 and Glass Mask eps 6-8. While I think FF is excellent and GM not so, they do seem to belong to the same subgenre - protagonist wronged by monstrous family, surrounded by secrets, seeking revenge. Both feature an abusive mother, a somewhat psychotic sibling (though FF's In Ha is all sorts of shades of grey and has hope of overcoming his badness while GM's sister is pure unmitigated evil), birth secrets, and the OTP that is pretty much the sole light of sanity and happiness in a rather tragic world. FF's protagonist is male and GM's female, but other than that, in a lot of ways they are mirrors of each other.

(Five Fingers episodes 15-16)  )

Meanwhile, everyone except the heroine, her OTP and the nerdy sweet glasses guy in Glass Mask continue to be wastes of space. I am pretty much in it for the OTP (at least until Seo Woo goes nuclear) - they are so adorable, I have no words. Plus, the male lead makes the best faces. And since I largely skip everything but the shipping, each ep doesn't take too long :)

Some examples of shippy cuteness - clicking on this will open within main page so if you want to go to the post directly, click on permanent link or leave a comment link instead )

Crazy alert!

Congratulations, In Ha, you are well on the way to winning abuser bingo:

1. Treat woman you 'love' as a thing to do with what you will, her wishes irrelevant.
2. Kiss her against her will. That's molestation, dude!
3. Try to buy her with offers of jobs, money, paying for her studies. She is not a hooker.
4. Try to control her by threatening harm to her loved ones - only an abuser would tell her "If you go to Ji Ho, I will kill him" as a means of trying to keep her by your side. (Luckily, Dami is sane and tells him to (politely) fuck off.
5. Want his mother to have her hired as his secretary so (I quote) "I can harass her." During same speech, inform Mom that Dami's feelings are immaterial as long as she is by him, and he will enjoy harassing her, and that he will eventually get her when Ji Ho has nothing because no woman would stay by a guy who has nothing. (Ummmm, dude, Dami came from poverty, I don't think living with someone without cash is new to her).
6. Possession is what matters, not feeling (he is fine with having a woman who only picked him as a last resort for money. In fact, that's his plan).

If he someone did get her, I can see this progressing to his locking her up, forbidding her to have contact with any friends/family and beating her up when she steps out of line. Jin Se Yeon tends to attract utter psychos as secondary guys, doesn't she? :)

You are pretty much insane and should be locked up for the general good.

But then his Mother is an enabler - promising In Ha she will get Dami for him (Lady, he isn't five and Dami isn't the new train set he wants for Christmas!) and trying to get Ji Ho to dump Dami 'because your brother likes her.' (Which makes no sense - there aren't only two men left in the world. Even if Dami isn't with Ji Ho, doesn't mean she will pick In Ha. In Ha is a pretty off-putting choice even without Joo Ji Hoon's cheekbones being in the picture). Thankfully Ji Ho's reaction is 'WTF!' Though even Mother is realizing In Ha is off the rails and is exactly like his psycho Daddy whose In Ha-like actions made her life hell (how ironic. Ji Ho, whom she hates as her husband's representative, is nothing like that).
