dangermousie: (KO 3an Guo: GY/DC love)


This is the ending of K.O. 3an Guo, the most awesome, underrated, insane, clever, ridiculous, emotional thing ever. You know how I hate anything with a hint of wacky and yet if was to make a Top 10 list, this drama would be on it.

I am nowhere near ep 53 yet, because I was waiting for the awesome DoReMii to finish subbing the entire thing so I could binge. They just did and I am about to do so (close to 20 eps of goodness to go!) but I couldn't bear it and peeked at the end. OMFG SHE IS STILL ALIVE OMFG OMFG. I know, for most people their favorite ship was either Xiu/Shang Xiang or Zhou Yu/Xiao Qiao, and I do love both of them. But for me, my favorite ship was Guan Yu/Diao Chan - they were such a classic righteous hero/strong beauty trope. Mmmmmmmm. After ep 37, where she was presumed dead, I thought I would perish (significantly, that is where I stopped). But eeeeee!!!! YES!!!!!! So happy.

The whole scene )

Now off to do some proper marathonning.

I posted a ton of shippy MVs already, so have a Wu Hu Jiang-centric one:

Have just finished ep 2 of Hayate the Combat Butler and such love! It's not a particularly meta-able drama, but I love its quirky manga sensibility, its fast pace, its mysteries which keep my attention, and above all the adorable, shippable, darling OTP. The are so pretty together!





Oh, and her voice can bring him back from the dead. That's always a nifty thing to have around.





Ahem. I did not just post the above sequence just because of a bare-chested pic. Nope.

In conclusion:



So! Cute! Park Shin Hye, ditch Shin from Heartstrings as he only wants to mack on an older woman anyway, and make out like bunnies with your sexay yet lethal butler.

Finished the first ep of Hayate the Combat Butler and it continued adorable, very sweet and oddly gentle throughout. I am utterly hooked. Only twdramas can make it feel so mangaish and so wonderful at the same time.

Also, does anyone else think Maria is the girl from his past that he was having that weird flashback to when he was unconscious? Despite his crush, I really am not shipping him with Maria and much prefer him with Park Shin Hye - they both have the same level of maturity while Maria is about 10x smarter and more grown-up than the both of them put together. I do wonder how PSH will react when she realizes he was yet another in a long line of people who wanted to kidnap her (yes, I care for the characters already, one ep in. That's a good sign).

In other news, I found a trailer for the upcoming Absolute Boyfriend with Jiro and Gu Hye Sun. Not the greatest quality video but good for my purposes. Am so very excited now, because unlike the jdrama (which should never be mentioned lest I get PTSD flashbacks and palpitations), this looks like it's got the manga story and vibe down pat. Plus, Jiro can do both sexy and goofy and while I am not a big fan of GHS, her kind of hyper, physical (over)acting seems very suited for manga adaptations of twdramaland. Can't wait!

I am barely 15 min into the first ep of Hayate the Combat Butler (best name ever, or what?) starring George Hu and Park Shin Hye and I am in love! Only twdramas can make me adore romcoms, adore hilarious endearing nonsense, and just feel glee.

But you know when I got really sold? The first meeting between George Hu and Park Shin Hye. Curse his pesky goodness! In huge debt to the mob due to his useless parents, he contemplates kidnapping her for ransom but the plan goes hilariously haywire when his innate decency instead leads him to devend her from harassers. LOLOLOL I adore you, guys.

Hilarious caps )

And then she starts ragging on the poor quality of the clothes he lent her. Bwahahahahhaa.

I confess to being excited by upcoming twdrama Hayate the Combat Butler from day one, mainly because I think the title cannot be beaten for sheer awesomeness.

But there are other reasons to be excited by the drama about a poor young man who contemplated a life of crime to get out of debt but instead ends up rescuing an heiress from a kidnapping attempt. The heiress, who is constantly under kidnapping threats, then hires him as her butler.

1. Park Shin Hye. I love her. I liked her character in YAB a lot longer than I would have if anyone else played her. I want to see her in a twdrama (though likely dubbed) because I think her cute vibe would really fit twdrama world.
2. I have been craving some romcommy goodness. And while I cannot be sure this will have romance, I am pretty sure that is the reason they aged the heiress from a 12-yr-old kid to...well...Park Shin Hye.
3. While jdramas and kdramas don't work for me when they go for odd wacky concepts, twdramas usually do.
4. While even a few weeks ago I wouldn't have considered the drama's leading man, George Hu, either a detriment or an asset (I've seen him in Love At First Fight and TGH and was fine with him in both but I didn't go starry-eyed or anything), it all changed after I checked out the inspired insanity that is KO 3an Guo. Now I have a massive crush on his Guan Yu and am definitely looking to checking him out in another drama.

Hopefully it will be a fun ride - sort of like Mei-chan without all the power dynamics problems I had with the latter. Worst case scenario, we'll get something like Romantic Princess - which actively made me leak brain matter and fast-forward for the sake of my sanity, but was ultimately inoffensive. But hopefully it will be cooler than that.

Hayate is supposed to air in April but I haven't seen any traces of a trailer so I am not sure how accurate that start date is (ah, twdramas, and their last-minute scheduling which drives me nuts). I did find this adorable video of PSH and George Hu practicing ballroom dancing, so have at it:



There is also a twdrama coming out which is, apparently, called Girl in Boys' Dorm Room which I must applaud for its getting straight to the point.
