and am almost done with TnU, in addition to BB, I am starting on the revenge drama Guilty.



Tamaki Hiroshi is a righteous but burned-out cop, and Kao Miho is a woman on a revenge mission. Must make for a heck of a eHarmony profile for the both of them.

Thank you everyone for the recs! Please keep them coming - the more the better as I want to go on an epic jdrama binge (a semi-related question - is Buzzer Beat worth it? I love me some Pi).

Out of all the recs, I am going to start of two of them tomorrow. They being the revenge/conspiracy drama Guilty and the angsty romance Taiyou no Uta. Why those two?

I loved the first ep of Guilty which I saw a long time ago. I have a huge thing for Tamaki Hiroshi, especially when he eats his meals properly. I love revenge stories and love that the avenger in this is a woman. Win win win.

As to Taiyou no Uta, if there is anything I am a sucker for, it's for doomed and forbidden love. Throw in Yamada Takayuki (does anyone break on screen as beautifully?) and I am set.

I dare you to watch this MV and not want to check it out:

1. I honestly do not get why the King of all of Joseon, who has plenty of advisors and loyal officers decides to use 4 college students to help him locate the all-important document that will change the course of history. I mean - bwah? Yes, even if the document is on premises of the University, how about using his pet advisor/prof? Seriously, he needs to use hormonal kids? I do not get. I also find it pretty off-putting that he desires to use Sun Joon when he knows this will force SJ to go against his own father. Ugh.

2. I don't understand complaints about Sun Joon not being angry on finding out Yoon Hee is a girl, especially when they use Han Kyul's reaction in Coffee Prince as their justification. Leaving aside the not-insignificant difference that HK is an impulsive drama queen and Sun Joon is a very reserved, reasoning, measured person, the situations are entirely different. For one thing, Sun Joon is the one who dragged Yoon Hee into the situation which forces her to hide her gender all the time. Let me make it even clearer - if YH reveals her gender, she and her whole family gets beheaded. Han Kyul did not unintentionally put YEH's character in that situation - this is the modern world and the most that could happen to her is she'd lose her job and she can find another (and in any event, HK wasn't responsible). Also, and this is a huge difference - they start dating and YEH still does not reveal her gender - HK finds from someone else. Sun Joon and Yoon Hee are not dating and she was actually going to tell him the truth as soon as he confessed his feelings (and he didn't find from others about her gender, either). Not to mention relief of 18th century nobleman about him not being gay thus being allowed to have a normal life and nor harm object of his affection either is huge compared to someone dealing with issues through 20th century prism. Anyway, short version. It all made sense to me.

Just an FYI: I am currently watching Chinese Paladin 3, Daemul, Gloria, Giant, SKKS, Joseon X-Files, Soulmate, Nagareboshi, Guilty, That Love Comes, Shanghai Bund. So those are ones I am going t blabbing about.

1. Heroine is good-natured and sunny. She is also a Bloody Avenger of Wrongs! And if you get in her way, she will end you. Basically, she is Joo Ji Hoon's character from Mawang, if Ji Hoon was a tiny smiley female who loved dogs.



2. How is it possible for Tamaki Hiroshi be so utterly gorgeous? Especially since it looks like he finally ate a sandwich. I sat through the interminably dull Nodame Cantabile for his gorgeous self, and I loved Love Shuffle but he was intervention-level emaciated in that (I was worried his cheek bones would punch through the skin), so imagine my glee that (a) his being in a good drama and (b) looking healthy and good finally coincided.



Anyway, she is an avenging angel, he is a broken detective, angsty loving shall hopefully ensue.

ETA: I pretty much hate the heroine and think she is totally evil and should go to jail forever. Maybe later I will get to the point I got with JJH in Mawang (I both hated him and pitied him and loved him) but for now, just hate. Maybe because in Mawang, JJH always gave people an out - it's their continuing sins that got them - if they chose to do the right thing, they'd live. But Kanno Miho's character is not like that. "Kill yourself while I watch or I kill your loved one right now" is not anything but truly despicable.

Awesome drama though.

Guilty

First off, [livejournal.com profile] scottishlass, [livejournal.com profile] ockoala, and [livejournal.com profile] darkeyedwolf, check your PMs. You got a present from a megaupload fairy :)

In other news, it looks like Guilty is going to be my first jdrama of the season. The synopsis makes it sound like a cross between Green Rose and Koori no Sekai, and I fail to see how this could ever be a bad thing. Plus, Tamaki Hiroshi and Kanno Miho!



Plot: Kanno plays the part of Meiko Nogami, a woman with a beautiful and kind heart. But 15 years ago her older sister's husband and son were killed and Meiko was falsely charged with the crime. She is released from prison 12 years later, and she resumes life as a pet groomer, but inside she is burning for revenge. As she searches out the truth behind the original murders, she leads the men around her to their destruction and death. Tamaki is taking on the role of a police detective who becomes attracted to Meiko even as he is investigating her as a suspect.


First ep is out but the subs are not out yet (a subbing group picked it up, however). Yesss.

OTOH, the plot of Second Virgin couldn't be less appealing and more distasteful if it tried. Skip.
