Am working through my drama backlog. Next up Gisaeng (where I am hugely behind) and 49 Days, but for now, I am up through ep 5 of CYHMH, which is all that has been subbed, and I crave more more more more. It's Gloria meets Baker King meets East of Eden meets Spring Waltz. In other words = I love.

Hwang Jung Eum seems to make a career of playing cheerful and indomitable girls with missing siblings who heal screwed up chaebol hotties with evil fathers and major issues through sheer tough and spirited awesomeness, warmth and common sense. Yes pls.



A few caps from ep 5 of CYHMH plus a MV )


I have also continued with my watch of Will It Snow For Christmas and this scene may be the single most romantic drama scene I've seen in years:



Scene here )

I am also continuing with Three Kingdoms. It is ridiculously pretty.



If it has a running theme, it's not struggles of power or battles - it's guys seemingly obsessed with sharing beds with other guys :)

See what I am talking about )

Barely minutes into ep 4 of Will It Snow for Christmas and am reminded as to why I loved what bits of it I've seen as it aired. Lee Kyung Hee's dramas always create these layers of emotions of an almost hothouse intensity - the plot is always secondary to bringing out whatever mood, relationships and emotional truth she wants to convey. This brief little scene:







Oh, what an emotional punch it packs. There is so little said (she says nothing at all, actually), no voices are raised, but the hidden layers of meaning is are so powerful. (For context, Han Ye Seul was sleeping outside her faithless fiance's apartment and Go Soo, who is the man's neighbor, saw it, saw she was sick, and took her in. Now it's the next morning and the fiance stopped by). Everything Go Soo does and says seems so innocuous but is driven by his feelings for her and his anger at the man who left her. The way he politely explains what happened last night and then feels her forehead for fever, as if the other man isn't there, the way he politely tells the other man he should take her to the hospital and adds "unless you are too busy, I can do that then." (oooh burn!)

Not to mention the chemistry. Ahhh, the chemistry. I have yet to see a LKH drama without an insane chemistry between the leads.

You know, I've watched four LKH dramas - this, Sang Do Let's Go to School, A Love to Kill, and Thank You, and one of the things they have in common is that the protagonists are always outcasts - not just physically, but emotionally. Often, they are outcast in a very status sense (Rain is a gigolo in SD and a thug in ALTK, Gong Hyo Jin is ostracized as a single mother by her island community (and a mother of a child with HIV, no less)), but even if their societal status is OK on the surface, they are deeply emotionally wounded and isolated and odd. Take Gong Hyo Jin's teacher in SD - yes, respectable profession, doctor fiance, seemingly normal life, but underneath it all is someone permanently broken by her childhood and her past. In ALTK, Shin Minah's successful actress is suicidal and wandering her life in search of meaning, and in Thank You, Jang Hyuk is broken by his gf's death. That ever-present trauma and fragility is present in both the protagonists of WISFC - sure, they both have normal 'societal' lives - he's an architect, she's a medical student, but they are both so very broken. From what I remember of my first 'sort-of' watch of this, she wanders through life as walking-wounded, mourning her brother, lacking confidence and hope. And for him, the scars of his childhood remain and the guilt over things that aren't his fault and a deep-seated belief of being unworthy of any possible happiness.

Anyway, ILY, drama!

So, Will It Snow On Christmas ended today.



And it's a happy ending. YES.

I held off watching it after ep 6 or so because I got a bit annoyed with then-upcoming plot developments (Go Soo's character got a little too self-made-martyr for my tastes) but also because I wanted to know what the ending was before emotionally committing.

Now I do, so forward I go, to slurp in Go Soo's delicious MANPAIN and this drama's general level of crazy.

I had yet another dream about IRIS ending. That's two nights in a row. Can you say obsessed?

I actually remembered this one pretty well - in it, there was incontrovertible evidence Seung Hee was an evil IRIS mastermind (said evidence was in form of teddybears - my subconscious is whack) so Hyun Joon had one awesome romantic evening with her and then shot her as per orders (clearly my subconscious is not keen on the likely - HJ isn't so good on orders and in any event would only kill her if she was a second away from blowing up the Universe). And then, in my dream, as he was sitting there with her body in his arms, all of a sudden someone came in who brought proof that all the evidence against Seung Hee was false after all, so Hyun Joon basically killed the woman he loved for nothing. Ummmm. Clearly I am confusing IRIS with (my favorite Indian movie ever) Omkara which had the most devastating final scene ever which basically went along the same lines. Well, at least whatever happens this week won't be as bad. Maybe I should write kdramas.

Now I am going to cheer self up with this:



Also, Lee Byung Hun, please don't let it be another 7 years between dramas! I couldn't stand it!

In other news, if you are not watching Will it snow for Christmas, why not?



A few more reasons )

Something really stressful is going in my life, so if you can please keep me in your thoughts in the next 24 hours, I will really appreciate.

In better (and thankfully distracting) news, I finished ep 4 of Will It Snow on Christmas and all I have to say is "where do I sign up to get my Kang Jin?"



Because I am so madly in love with him - he is so grown-up and strong-willed and with this sense of inner rightness about him. I just love it. I love grown-ups.

Also, you know what's one thing hotter than a really competent man? A really competent man who is not ashamed of his hooker mother and who spends the whole night tenderly nursing an unconscious woman. Oh, I ship him and Ji Wan like there is no tomorrow - Go Soo and Han Ye Seul have this incredible chemistry and their verbal thrust-and-parry is so wonderful - it's so underlaid with the unspoken past - the bitterness and the longing on his part and her anger and uncertainty. Gosh, I ship them so much.

The secondary guy is so pathetically weak - when Ji Wan tells him she will find a man 100x times better than him, I want to yell at the screen that it's not hard - would Kang Jin take $$$ to dump a gf, as secondary guy did in order to dump secondary girl? Yeah, right. (Side note - I loathe secondary girl - she is no OTP interloper in the least but she is so incompetent, a boss just because of her family - I cannot stand people who ruin other people's success and are useless drunk brats. Ugh).

I may not be able to post this weekend so quick thoughts.

1. Congratulations to You're Beautiful for winning "favorite drama of 2009" poll. IRIS was second. Seeing how far ahead YAB was, I won't do a run-off. I don't want to break my heart again. Return of Iljimae won in the separate runner-up category, which made me happy.

Side note: whatever my issues with YAB itself, I love JGS and PSH and if we had kissing like this in the drama, I might have been more reconciled to it :P



(Yet another reason I am not big on teen dramas - as opposed to the above, they always kiss as if they are afraid to catch leprosy - BOF's infamous behind-the-scenes clip with the director telling Lee Min Ho to close his mouth and just hold it is still in my memory).

2. If you are not watching Will it Snow at Christmas, you should be. It's all about the staring.




Larger and more cuteness )

3. Trailer for Jejoongwon is out. It looks amazing:



I won't be drama-bored this winter!

1. Preview for ep 18 of IRIS:



I am getting really nervous - Hyun Joon seems to be suspecting Seung Hee - if she is a member of IRIS then I will positively die. NO, please please please.

2. I managed to watch more of Will It Snow for Christmas - so ridiculously good, and written in such a way that I can buy the childhood love foundation because (1) they were high-school age, so more likely to stick in mind and also interacted a lot; (2) both went on to be functional and not just fantasizing about the other every night; (3) most important - their relationship was literally life-changing for her, for spoilery reasons, so it would definitely stick in her memory and also - she's basically the one bright thing in a pretty soul-killing life, for him - no wonder he gloms.

Have a yummy yummy bit:



Larger )

3. Apparently a new trailer for Slave Hunters/Chuno aired after IRIS which has Dae Gil/Hye Won bits - at last! (My shipping preferences for this drama change like the wind - if they show her with Tae Ha, I ship her with Tae Ha, if they show her with Dae Gil, I ship her with Dae Gil. Maybe they should all get together in one OT3 of angst and hotness. Though considering I am already shipping for a drama which won't air for a month, perhaps the less said about me, the better :P). There is...wait for it...piggybacking! Hopefully he left his sword at home at that time :)

ETA: Here it is. OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG (((Hye Won)))



4. Because I couldn't get Snow Xmas to work last night, I ended up watching eps 4 and 5 of Innocent Love and much fun was had by all - girlfriend-in-a-coma Junya, beginning-to-remember-she-was-molested Kanon, homicidal-maniac Brother, serial-killer-eyes Choir Girl, euthanisia-happy Subaru, etc.



Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiip - I defy you not to ship them )

5. And now for the ridiculous: apparently Lee Byung Hun is being slapped with a breach of promise lawsuit by a Canadian woman. Article on Dramabeans. Long story short: LBH dated some Canadian girl, and now she alleges he "lured" her to Korea by promises of marriage but once she moved, stuck her in a house in Seoul and didn't visit her much. I only have three thoughts on this (1) if this is true, all that makes him is a bad boyfriend and, arguably, a jerk (I wouldn't even go that far - people get bored in relationships all the time and walk out). If you could sue a guy for being a jerk, the judicial system would break from overload and die; (2) Bwaahahahahaha - that's subject to a lawsuit???? I thought breaches of promise actions died with Queen Victoria; and (3) Oh, LBH, why on earth do you even need to sweet-talk? I am pretty sure there are scores of attractive ladies who'd be happy to get together with you in exchange for a promise - a promise of a one-night stand :D

6. My Kindle seems to have died :( I need it! I don't post about books much on here because I talk about them elsewhere, but I've been powering through early P.G. Wodehouse (British humorist-novelist and my favorite writer) and I need my fix. I am in the minority where I prefer early Wodehouse to his 'mature' work - the style in his later work gets even more polished and perfect but his earlier books have emotion, and I like that. Can anyone imagine Bertie Wooster with a heart? I am especially in love with "Jill the Reckless" (Jill is awesome, and Wally = love, plus there is all that stuff about play-making and production which PGW knew intimately) but The Intrusion of Jimmy is also a ridiculous delight.

7. [livejournal.com profile] crumpeteer's picspam inspired me to check out SyFy's Alice. I liked Tin Man and I generally like riffs on classics. That reminds me, must give "The Looking Glass Wars" a look.
