So weird, anything I posted after the sticky post was not showing up on any flist at all. Bizarre. So I temporarily unstickied and reposted and restickied. Let's see if this works.

Poll results - so the results of my January Drama Poll are in and (to nobody's surprise, I am sure), the clear winner, the drama most people plan to check out is the jdrama Wallflower - 30 votes. In second place comes the kdrama Slave Hunters/Chuno with 17 votes, and kdrama romcom Pick the Stars is in 3rd with 13 votes. But all the dramas on the list got some love with the exception of poor lonely Ryoma den and Salaryman Kintaro - seeing that the former is a 40+ historical jdrama with little chance of subs and the latter is yet another season of an interminable comedy (subs also do not seem in the offing), that is not surprising.

In other news, I am on episode 2 of Goodbye My Love and I really adore it. Two quick observations Quick thoughts )

In other news: Omo!

I have been gorging on spoilers for ep 1 of Chuno and I am insane - I am literally giggling in glee. Giggling.

Good Lord.

I can't wait. I am going to watch raw.

We can has shippiness!!!!!

Seriously, my Robbers OTP is baaaack.

All that lovely shippiness plus apparently that bit from the previews of Dae Gil riding like a mad person is to stop Hye Won's wedding? OMGOMGOMG thank you drama gods!

Also, Holy...Apparently the ratings were in the 25% range!

To conclude, deep and meaningful plot:



ETA: Preview for ep 2:

You guys, I am so in love with Goodbye My Love after the first ep, it's ridiculous.

I know not to get attached to our protagonists (not with a title like that) but I can't help it - I adore the spunky, blunt, common-sense heroine who has dreams of making it big through hard work and who thinks it's cool to meet guys in libraries. She is unafraid to state her mind, is not missish in the least, wonderfully well-adjusted, and I love her interactions with her rich-guy-dreaming best friend. She is gorgeous too - makes me think of Korean Barbie Hsu. I adore the pent-up-angry and competent working class hero who is a sort of general dogsbody to a really awful rich family (from what I can tell, he rescued that family's son and now they basically took him in and treat him as a total servant - I sort of cringe at all the little humiliations - but he is sticking at is in hopes of being able to have a job). They treat him as a thing. UGH. Plus, he has this kind of edge I like - he gets sent on behalf of rich son to get rid of rich son's importuning gf and he basically threatens her to have her let go. Ahn Jae Wook is my newest drama crush - he's gorgeous and he also can act. You can just see how all these humiliations eat and eat at him, just through the way he looks as he never says anything about it.

I don't like Jung Joon Ho's spoiled, thoughtlessly cruel character - but maybe I am just peeved at his horrible fringe, gold chains, and tinted glasses. He's fun to hate, just as they intended. He's sort of a bully who isn't worse than he is because he's too lazy to bother. JJH is excellent as always :)

I also love that while this drama doesn't look cheap, it's a lot more lowkey and less glitzy than modern ones and it looks more real. Plus, you know it's old - everybody smokes!

Do not be fooled by their bright smiles - soon enough they will be weeping tears of blood.

In the mood for an old-fashioned weepy melodrama, I picked up my DVDs of Goodbye My Love, a 1999 classic starring Ahn Jae Wook, Kim Hee Sun and a very young (and atrociously hairstyled) Jung Joon Ho.

It's a tragic love story starring Ahn Jae Wook, a young man dedicated to young playboy played by Jung Joon Ho - AJW saved JJH's life a long time ago and JJH's father hired him, providing him a way out of poverty. And then, one day, he meets Kim Hee Sun and falls in love...I bet a love triangle will ensue. As to the ending? With a title like this, is it any doubt someone will die?

I have watched only 5 minutes so far, and even in those 5 minutes I have been convinced of the excellence of this drama as in that short span of time we already have had: (a) pretty opening credits consisting of a hot man and a beautiful woman (our protagonists) clutching each other and weeping while a Russian (!) song I recognize plays over them; (2) our first glimpse of the Hero being in bed with Secondary Guy, and not dressed too much either; (3) Meaningful Shower Important to Plot. Hero has an exemplary back.

I have just met the Heroine (as did the Hero) on college campus when someone accidentally hit her with a soccer ball. Knowing kdrama medicine, I am beginning to wonder if she is going to develop leukemia from it and die.

Have a pretty MV:



Despite the somewhat grainy MV and pic, I can happily inform you than my DVDs themselves are crystal-clear and with excellent subtitles.

So join me and wallow in the pain. Ahn Jae Wook is so very pretty when he cries.

I think I shall tackle Wish Upon a Star (also known as Star in My Heart - a happy ending Cinderella tale) next:



Btw, he is the singer in both of those MVs - the guy has a nice voice. I see a newest crush.

I am in the mood for a nice, traditional, weepy kdrama so I shall try the Halluy classic Goodbye My Love starring Ahn Jae Wook and Kim Hee Sun.

The hero is someone hired to keep a rich boy out of trouble, heroine works in a factory and has financial problems. There is tragic OTP and other awesomeness...

Or, as wiki puts it:

The gorgeous duo of An Jae Wook and Kim Hee Seon star in one of the best-loved Korean dramas ever, Goodbye My Love.Before this drama they starred in Sunflower in 1998. Min Soo (An Jae Wook, Star In My Heart) and Gi Tae (Jeong Joon Ho, Marrying The Mafia) have been friends for years. Thirteen years ago, Min Su saved Gi Tae's life, and in return, Gi Tae's father hires Min Su to permanently keep his son out of trouble. Loyal to the last, Min Su dutifully looks over his friend, who is a reckless and rather spoilt playboy.

One night the two good-looking young men are out on the town and come across a couple of beautiful ladies. Yeon Ju (Kim Hee Seon, Bichunmoo) and Jung Ae (Lee Hae Young, First Love) are roommates and both work together too at a local factory. Eager to impress the girls, Gi Tae and his ever-loyal friend begin to tell a very tall tale to the girls, in the hope of impressing them. But little do they know that they will live to regret their lies.


I bet somebody dies!
