1. It just occurred to me that Yoochun's character in Ripley is basically a continuation of his character in that mobile jdrama which is so hard to get ahold of - the whole angsty arrogant rich chaebol thing. Mmmmm. I must admit out of all the upcoming May dramas, I am most excited about Ripley. Lee Da Hae is my favorite kdrama actress, bar none, and Yoochun is so freaking yum. Plus, I love my dark dramas.

2. Despite my misgivings, I tried Drunken to Love You despite my loathing of the name and lack of enthusiasm over the cast. Ummm....no. Just no. I am not one of those people who claims that a drama is bad just because I didn't like it (though sometimes the two do correspond - nobody will convince me Vampire Gigolo is a masterpiece), but while this may not be a bad drama, it is very much not my thing in every possible way.

3. Muscle Girl, the jdrama which stars Lee Hong Ki, apparerently premiered a few days ago. I am pretty interested in checking it out. I couldn't stand LHK's character in You're Beautiful, with his blond hair, endless screams of 'Jolieeeeee' and IQ of lettuce, but I think LHK is a decent actor with a gorgeous singing voice, so I want to see him in something else. I'll get back to you on whether it's any good. It has a typical wacky jdrama premise but hopefully he'll be a little smarter in this one than YAB.

4. Any idea when Yuan Hong's period cdrama Mi Wu Shuang Long supposed to air? I've just seen the trailer and it looks like cdrama Indiana Jones with a lot more angst and cool clothes:



5. Speaking of trailers, teaser for Lie To Me is out. It's cuuuuute. Thanks [livejournal.com profile] ockoala, for the heads-up!



I am more excited for Ripley and Best Love but that is certainly on my list to check out and squee over.

Does this sound amazing or what?

Lee Da Hae will be playing the leading female role, ‘Jang Miri’, a woman who finds herself in utter chaos because of the one lie she mistakenly makes.

Kim Seung Woo, a cold man who managed to rise from poverty to become a hotel manager, falls in love with Lee Da Hae at the risk of losing everything he has worked for.

Park Yoochun will complete the love triangle by playing the role of ‘Yutaka’, the son of a famous Japanese resort CEO. Through Lee Da Hae, Park Yoochun comes to understand what true love is, but unfortunately, does so at the price of his own downfall.

Kang Hye Jung will be the caring and innocent ‘Na Hee Ju’, Lee Dae Hae’s adopted sister of Lee Da Hae. Like the two men fighting for Lee Da Hae’s love, Kang Hye Jung is also pulled into harm’s way because of her since she refuses to tell the scandalous secret surrounding her sister.


From here.

Though going by the order they list characters/actors, there is no way Yoochun is getting the girl. Boooo! Kim Seung Woo leaves me completely and utterly cold in every way, sex appeal especially (also, he is way too old for LDH, though if anyone could pull off pairing with an older man it would be the awesomeness that is LDH).

This season has left me pretty underwhelmed (not that the dramas are bad, they are just not to my taste). Crime Squad is excellent, 49 Days entertaining, and I am back on the New Gisaeng bandwagon but there is no mania drama for me.

OTOH, this May/summer, I am pre-obsessed with Best Love, Festival, Lie To Me and Goodbye Miss Ripley. They are pretty much tied for first place in my anticipation.

I was wondering - would it be fun for me to do a weekly post on each of these where everyone could discuss anything related to these eps as a free-for-all. Sort of the way I used to do watchalong posts but this time for aired dramas and more structured?

Aaaand - we have a winner! Goodbye Miss Ripley starring Lee Da Hae (a.k.a. Mousie's favorite kdrama actress) and Micky Yoochun (a.k.a. Mousie's true love from SKKS) which airs after The Duo is over. Apparently this is going to be based on a true-crime scandal about a woman who got hired by a prestigious college institution after showing these amazing credentials but then it turned out she barely finished high-school and faked her degrees with the help of her much older boyfriend (presumably not Micky as he's not almost 20-yrs her senior, good Lord). LDH plays the scammer. Not sure who Micky plays except I am sure he will be her OTP.

I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT!!!!

No offense to The Duo, but please be over sooner, k?

The runner-up is Discovery of Affection, an upcoming Hong Sisters drama about a love affair between a successful actor and a washed-out actress. Starring Cha Seung Won and Gong Hyo Jin. I repeat - starring Cha Seung Won and Gong Hyo Jin. If there is a casting heaven which answers my prayers, this is it. The Hong Sisters and I have a somewhat fraught relationship - when I love their dramas, I love them hard (My Girl, Delightful Girl Chunhyang, and Hong Gil Dong, the latter of which is in my top 10 kdramas of all time. I enjoyed Fantasy Couple as well though not as much as the above three). However, every one of their dramas since HGD has been actively annoying to me - both You're Beautiful and Gumiho Girlfriend felt stale, emotionally shallow, and featured characters where to call them immature and weak would be kind. BUT. I have hope! Because the big problem with YAB and GG came from them skewing so young. With actors in their 30s (GHJ) and 40s (CSW) respectively, this is not an issue, especially since neither could play a weak idiot if they tried. More importantly, if Hong Sisters wanted their leads to portray weak idiots, they would not have picked those particular actors. So, despite my past falling out with the Hong Sisters, hooray!
