dangermousie: (Handsome Siblings Nic by meganbmoore)
Randomly scouring viki, I came across the 2011 Nicholas Tse/Charlene Choi fantasy drama Sword Heroes Fate [sic]. Now, you may not realize it, but I have an utterly irrational obsession with Nic Tse. There are a bunch of actors I like better, but there isn't any other actor where I will watch a drama from beginning to end simply because he's in it, whether I like the drama itself or not. I am not sure whether it's the hotness (stick the man in a wuxia, give him a sword and long hair, and he looks utterly at home) or the fact that he was the star of very first wuxia drama I've ever seen (Handsome Siblings, about which more below) and I've imprinted, like a baby duck.

Anyway, SHF is huge huge fun! It starts out in 2030, where Nic and Charlene are a long-time couple whose relationship is on the skids. But it is all about to change when the company where Charlene works unveils a new virtual reality game - you can 'transform' into an ancient Tang person (while keeping your memories and personality, of course) and play the game as if you are in it. Only while Charlene and Nic are both in it during the trial run, a mysterious bad guy (hint: it's the cute puppy guy who makes dolls for orphans in his spare time, LOL) blocks the players from exiting the game so they are trapped. Not only that, but he causes Charlene to lose her memories so she now believes she is her Tang persona - a famous period beauty who has no memories of Nic and their life together. So now Nic must find a magical jade in hopes it will restore her memories. Oh, and Charlene becomes Nic's enemy and a member of an evil cult. Not sure what else will go on but I am sure Nic will be stoic yet angsty and people will get stabbed. Guys, couples' therapy would have been so much easier, honest!

Have a trailer:



Anyway, I watched the first ep and it was a great deal of fun when, to my horror, I realized that only the first ep was subbed so far. Nooooo!!!! *wail wail wail* So I decided to sate my Nic craving by digging out their 2007 drama The Spirit of the Sword. I saw the first ep of TSotS ages ago and really liked it. My cdrama list is getting more and more insane. Have a cute MV from that drama:



And since we are on it, have a MV of Handsome Siblings, Nic/Fan Bing Bing couple. The drama itself is hugely uneven (the Dicky Cheung storyline made me want to kill things) but NT/FBB were totally amazing and are still one of my favorite otps of all time - he's an angsty assassin forbidden to love, she is a tough sane fighter girl who makes him break that rule, angst angst shippiness amazing insane evil parents (his adopted mother still takes the cake for the most psycho drama parent), plus more awesomeness.

EEEE! Got my hands on the English-subbed version of Da Ren Wu (Big Shot or Hero, I have seen it translated both ways), last year's wuxia drama starring Nicholas Tse and Angelica Lee. It's based on a novel I've never read and the plot sounds so delicious:

Naïve, young Tian Si Si (Angelica), the apple of her father’s eye and the sole heir to her family’s riches, believes that she is in love with the great romantic hero, Qin Ge of the Meteor Clan. She dreams of traveling the martial arts world, actually meeting Qin Ge and having adventures just like many of the stories that she has read and heard. From childhood, she has been betrothed to the younger son of General Yang, Yang Fan (Nic), whom she despises.

Handsome, melancholy, talented Yang Fan has been on a mission for his father to secretly investigate the Meteor Clan whose upright reputation and strength has been rising in the martial arts world to rival that of Shaolin and Wudang. He comes back injured and somewhat changed, troubled with memory loss after an investigation. He marries Tian Si Si as his father ordered, but Tian Si Si has other plans for her life and runs away at the first opportunity. She quickly becomes entangled in plots and counter plots as she discovers the real world. Both Yang Fan and Qin Ge are ordered to go after her. All is not what it seems as the Meteor Clan and its members, rivals and government agents are at work behind the scenes.


Seriously, how many ways do I love the premise?

* Couple falling in love after marriage? Check. Though seeing your arranged match is Nicholas Tse it's not really a hardship
* Cooky heroine
* Angst and funniness
* Love triangle
* Nic Tse as the lead (if Handsome Siblings was all about him, it would be such a huge fave). I mean, he doesn't even need to act, he can just stand there and I'll ogle him.

Look at the cute MV for the OTP (with hints of a triangle):



I think I fell for it about the time he let her (she is possessed) stab him through the shoulder. I am so predictable!

I have also got Men and Legends (Dylan Kuo and Peter Ho, does it really need a plot?) and Fairy from Wonderland (finally. I want to see Hu Ge write on the walls in blood).

But all this shall not sate me!

I need Legend of Condor Heroes and I can't find any subs except for Vietnamese yet. I need! Please!!!

I mean, look. I want this now:



OK, will distract self with another favorite wuxia OTP (Flower/Orchid from Handsome Siblings. Angsty assassins and common-sense fighter girls ftw).

Newest Tip for the “Crazy Secondary Girl Stalker Handbook:” Be satisfied if you are the Emperor’s favorite concubine. Going after a guy who never indicated any interest in you, is in mourning for his beloved dead wife (which you know about), and deciding that the best way to win him over is to dress like her, come into his room in the middle of the night and tell him you can be her? Will likely not work out.

I’ve restarted watching Handsome Siblings, the wuxia drama with Nicholas Tse, Dicky Cheung and Fan Bing Bing, that I have been watching on and off for months. I can’t watch it in a binge: not only is it too long, but it’s incredibly uneven: some parts of the story I love to bits (anything involving Flower and/or Orchid) and some I couldn’t care less about (all the palace intrigue, not too mention waaaaay too much of Little Fish and his antics). It would not replace Return of the Condor Heroes (which might have an equally gigantic cast of supportings but firmly focuses on the OTP and their angsty, forbidden, sword-wielding love) as my fave wuxia, but it’s definitely super awesome in places.

I am beginning to think it’s some sort of a wuxia trope to have one half of an OTP jump off a cliff at the place his true love died, in order to reunited with her in death, only to discover her alive at the bottom. When that happened in Return of the Condor Heroes, I just thought it was unique to that story, but here we are in Handsome Siblings and here we are again!

We have Flower, the hot angsty former assassin, jump off the cliff where his wife, Orchid, jumped off to her death a few months earlier in order to save his life (long story. For details click on tag, short version is: Flower’s masters are evil psychos).

But then he fails to die (due to his super-awesome martial arts skills I am sure) and is all bleeding and injured and then he staggers into this house at the bottom and he finds Orchid’s scarf.

Clearly, somebody has been doing demographic surveys, because I can imagine few things more appealing to this particular viewer than a wounded, bleeding hottie, burying his face in his wife’s scarf and whispering her name.

And then we see a bowl fall and Orchid comes in, and there is clutching (mutual) and weeping (his) and her bandaging his arm which necessitates taking half his shirt off (yes, thank you) and explanations and conversations about the baby kicking. All things I highly approve of.

Ah, if this drama centered only around Flower and Orchid, it would definitely go into my Top 10.

Did I mention that while the protagonists of ROCH are my fave wuxia OTP, I think Orchid is my fave female wuxia character? She is just so competent, pragmatic, and full of common sense. Which balances Flower out perfectly, what with him being super-reserved, super-emo, and only slowly getting the hang of this whole ‘emotion and interaction’ thing. I think part of the reason he is so madly in love with Orchid, to the level of not being able to function without her, is because she is the first normal person he has. (Well, there is Little Fish but it would be twincest).

You know, I do like Little Fish. He is capable and compassionate and certainly way better adjusted than Flower. I would have loved him to bit if he was supporting. But not when it becomes all about him. I mean, when Flower lost his wife, he wandered out in the desert to die (and then had an interlude of supreme hotness when he was rescued and returned the favor to the Princess who did it and wore a mask :P) and then when his obligations were discharged, jumped off a cliff. Fish lost his wife and wept a bit and got over it and is now onto his next OTP. That is probably healthy, but way unappealing.

Because my earlier post reminded me of them, here is a MV of one of my favorite drama couples, Nicholas Tse and Fan Bing Bing from Handsome Siblings



I mean, how could you not love them? He is someone trained from infancy to be an assassin by two crazy evil ladies who live in a cave, and who ends up emerging into the world as a rather understandably reserved and not-knowing-how-to-interact guy. Who fights with a fan. YES. With a fan. She, OTOH, is a spunky and awesome fighter lady, who is also remarkably well-adjusted (she has to be. Someone in that OTP has to be) and capable and who he ends up falling in love with.

And from then on it's evil families, blindness, self-sacrifice, cages (YES), almost-deaths, poisonings, and other stuff that is so incredibly full of the AWESOME. I mean, what more can I say after I mention that the awesome fact that the Evil Ladies injected him with a poison that gives him hideous pain if he falls in love, and the more he falls the worse it gets, is only the beginning. Oh yes. AWESOME.

Poor Flawless Flower. He is now wondering in the desert, parched with thirst, and then looks at his water flask (which has some water in it) and lies down and pours it out, whispering 'Orchid, wait for me.'

OMG.

And then he is rescued by a passing desert tribesleader lady and wakes up and the first words out of his mouth are 'Orchid?'

GUH. I've forgotten what crack Handsome Brothers are when they focus on Flower.

Did I mention that yes, Flawless Flower is his given name? And he is a former assassin? And Orchid is his wife, who killed herself at the behest of his horrendous family to save him? YEAH.

Never change, wuxia.

Here is an awesome Flower/Orchid OTP vid:



Btw, the name for this drama is all wrong. It should be 'Handsome brother and mediocre looking brother.' Because Little Fish? Nothing to write home about, to put it mildly.

Poor Flawless Flower. He is now wondering in the desert, parched with thirst, and then looks at his water flask (which has some water in it) and lies down and pours it out, whispering 'Orchid, wait for me.'

OMG.

And then he is rescued by a passing desert tribesleader lady and wakes up and the first words out of his mouth are 'Orchid?'

GUH. I've forgotten what crack Handsome Brothers are when they focus on Flower.

Did I mention that yes, Flawless Flower is his given name? And he is a former assassin? And Orchid is his wife, who killed herself at the behest of his horrendous family to save him? YEAH.

Never change, wuxia.

Here is an awesome Flower/Orchid OTP vid:

First off, volume 12 of Wallflower is out. EEEE!

I am halfway through ep 22 of Handsome Siblings. Since I ff past all the non Flower/Orchid stuff, it’s amazing how fast it goes.

Though I confess that Little Fish and Angel resolution made me sniffle like mad. spoiler )

But with the exception of stuff like that, Orchid/Flower is where it’s at for me.

OTP mad squee )
