Has anyone checked out The Musical with Gu Hye Sun and Daniel Choi? The trailer looks cute (and GHS looks like she toned down the mugging, thank God! Though she's still sporting a hairdo from hell).



I plan to watch the first ep and see.

Also, found this awesome MV for one of my favorite drama couples, Giant's Min Woo/Mi Joo.

Much as I am adoring the romance-novel deliciousness of Gisaeng, the drama that owns me this spring season and that is currently my favorite drama of 2011 is the wonderful Can You Hear My Heart.



Oh, I adore it so.

Some caps and thoughts from ep 6 )

In a lot of ways, it reminds me of Min Woo/Miju in Giant, which is a good thing: (1) plucky poor girl with a missing brother (2) angsty icy rich guy (3) who has an evil murdering daddy responsible for death of girl's family member (4) and missing brother is guy's older bro figure actually (5) and guy wants revenge on daddy (6) and heroine is fun and no-nonsense and figures out things about guy nobody else knows (7) and first meeting is not a fun one.

Hey, if I am going to ship them half as hard as I shipped MW/Miju, I am set.

My Gloria love cemented what I was earlier suspecting with dramas like Giant and Baker King - I really dig long kdramas and go for family ones in a big way.

So my next binge is likely to be Golden Bride - I saw and liked the first ep ages ago but was scared by the length and put it away. Well, the length doesn't bother me any more, so here we come.

I couldn't find any main otp mvs, so have a secondary otp one:



I also want to continue with Family Honor, where I was also scared off by the length before - but seeing how I loved the writer's Gloria and Pick the Stars, that it stars darling scene-stealer Park Shi Hoo, and that it's actually shorter than Gloria, here I come! I hear dramafever has it (dls don't have great visual quality because they are tv rips so I'd rather stream).

1. Short preview for ep 17 of Secret Garden is out and ouch - here comes the angst! Gimme moar!!!!!!!!



2. I just found out that the second lead in the upcoming Paradise Ranch, the drama that's the acting debut of Changmin from DBSK, is Joo Sang Woo. You may remember him from that little drama known as Giant. Yes, it's my baby Min Woo a.k.a. my favorite character in the drama. Seeing that JSW more than held his own against people like Lee Bum Soo in Giant (and in fact his and Miju's storyline expanded and expanded due to crazy popularity), I feel kinda bad for poor kpop idol Changmin - JSW is going to wipe the floor with him! It doesn't help that JSW looks like a man but Changmin looks all of 12 years old. Come on, are you telling me this boy is old enough to drive, let alone date anyone?



While I am being a cranky grandma, why don't you eat something and get clothes that fit?

And while we are on topic - why, oh why do idols get starring roles as their acting debuts, as a matter of right? WTF! Most of them can't act. I have no objection to them entering the acting biz but how about starting with small roles and learning a bit first? Why do I have to suffer through their learning curve? If you are not ready for a leading role, then you shouldn't be in it! There are a ton of excellent actors who never get leading roles or who take years to get one, but instead we are subjected to cardboard idols as leads who fail miserably. I mean - it's one thing to give a newbie a starring role when you are basing it on their chops - see Joo Won and Jung So Min - but they were presumably chosen based on their acting ability as they aren't idols - and they did a great job. I don't want kdramas to turn into jdramas so all the recent idol-drama stuff is making me unhappy. Sure, some idols do a good job even at the start (I loved Changmin's former bandmember Yoochun in SKKS) but that's an exception not the rule. Yup, skipping that one.

3. An upcoming drama I am excited for is 49 Days. The soul-swapping theme sounds interesting (more Who Are You than Secret Garden in this case), Jo Hyun Jae is sexy and manly and I adore Jung Il Woo (though I want him to have another leading role - talking of non-idols who should be starring in things). Lee Yo Won has always underwhelmed me but she's gorgeous. Plus, the writer is the writer of Brilliant Legacy and Prosecutor Princess, so what's not to love?

4. Ep 2 of Dream High fully put me into Hyemi/Jin Gook territory. Sorry, Kim Su Hyun! ILY and all, but you can't comete with his saving her from gangsters, and giving her motorcycle rides, and letting her cry into his helmet, and the fact that he remembers her from when they were both kids and she wept for him because his mother was going to dump him in an orphanage. Sorry. Go console yourself with glasses girl.

The penultimate episode of Giant aired today and I watched it raw. Not much to say, other than I feel horribly sorry for poor Seung Mo but the preview for the last ep made me squeal like a stuck pig. Because the spoilers appear to be correct only with even more drama!

Relevant caps from preview for the last ep of Giant ever! )

So excited! All I want from the ending is (1) MW/Miju, hopefully getting therapy they both need and a lot of sexy makeouts. Living happily with Wooju (2) Lee sibs happy and reunited (3) Daddy Satan to get his comeuppance.

Looks like I'll get all or most of it (and even things I don't care about, like GM/Jung Yeon - I fail to see why they didn't get married 20 eps back, actually - that ship has no passion or urgency at all, IMO, but if that if what they want, I don't mind) so I shouldn't be ungrateful to the writer and stop complaining. I'll try.

But before I try, I am going to say this - it would all have been so much simpler and made so much sense if Seung Mo paid a thug to stab Daddy Satan to death in ep 10 or thereabouts. Or maybe sabotage his car. Yes, I know we'd not have a 60 ep drama then, but it would be so much better for everyone involved and make so much more sense.

Read this on soompi, please please please let this be true!

Apparently Miju stops Min Woo from offing himself (why? I don't mean why she stops him, I mean why was he going to?), he ends up having a short jail term and when he's out she meets him with Wooju and they can all be a happy frelled-up family together. Now, this doesn't really solve any writing problems, either in general (tons of plotholes, nonexistent revenge plan, characters who got dull) or on MW/Miju front (are they even going to have time to address the whole 'her family hates his guts and vice versa' thing or 'ooops, I lied and Wooju is your son' thing or the whole 'Miju kept pushing him away for no good reason and then Min Woo went evil' thing) but at this point, I've given up on Giant being as good as it was in the first half and will just settle for a happy ending for my OTP, however half-baked.

Meanwhile, have a few awesome angsty MW/Miju scenes:



However much of a mess Giant has become by now, I will always have warm feelings towards it because it gave me Min Woo/Miju.
