I have only one thing to say about the beginning of the episode 3 of Magicians of Love: Water. Maze.

Yes.

But the drama I want to glee about now is the currently airing Hua Yang Shao Nian Shao Nu (also known as Hana Kimi, an adaptation of the Japanese manga I adore).

I am only about halfway into the first ep, but I am IN LOVE! It’s delicious and fluffy and adorable and funny and romantic and everything.

It combines so many genres I love: a romance story, a school story, a dorm story, an adorable wacky girl and an AWESOME quiet boy and a cast of wacko supporting characters. It’s perfect.

The plot is simple and at first glance insane. But it works. Rui Xi (Ella), who lives in America, has long admired Quan (Wu Zun), a high jumper. In fact, she admires him so much, even though she has never met him, that she persuaded her family to let her enroll in the same school Quan goes to, in Taiwan. A minor problem. Quan goes to an all boys school. But Rui Xi is nothing if not resourceful. She chops off her hair, binds her slight breasts, and enrolls as a boy.

In fact, she ends up not just sharing the school with Quan. She is assigned to be Quan’s roommate. A pity quiet, reserved, and politely stand-offish Quan is nothing like she’s imagined. And he’s given up high jump.

Oh, and there is Xiu Yi (Jiro Wang, rocking the adorableness!), the sociable, friendly, teasing soccer player who befriends Rui Xi. And Si Nan, the playboy R.A. And Mei Tian, the gay school doctor, who figures out and keeps Rui Xi’s secret. And a whole bunch of other wackos.

Thoughts on why I love it so much. Ep 1 spoilery )

And here are some HK pics.

Bringing you cuteness )

In other dorama news, I am about half an hour into the short (2 ep) Korean drama, Bride from Hanoi (otherwise known as Hanoi Bride). I’ve summed it up and posted pics of it earlier, so no summary all over again, but may I say, it’s adorable?

For one thing, being only two hours long, it doesn’t suffer from the same pacing problems a lot of kdramas suffer from. I am not tempted to tear out my hair at the myriad of slow misunderstandings. This thing is so short, the lead male does not have an annoying ex, for one. Rejoice! For another, Gong-Chan from My Girl is on this! (Yes, I know, the actor’s name is Lee Dong-Wook but he is Gong-Chan to me :P) being a young doctor, falling in love with this Vietnamese girl and then losing her through her annoying half-sister, and now has to see her engaged to his brother. YES.

Hallyu has well and truly struck.

I am going to be posting a nice long exhaustive list of all the Korean dramas I plan to watch/obtain/obsess over in the coming month(s),

But for now, my newest object of obsession:

Bride from Hanoi (also known as Hanoi Bride), this is a mini-drama, only 2 episodes long (so think of it as a movie, I guess), which I stumbled across because My Girl gave me a slightly unhealthy fascination with Lee Dong-Wook.



Anyhoo, even if it was acted out by gorillas, I couldn't have refused it after a synopsis like this: Eun Woo (Lee Dong Wook), a Korean doctor, meets and falls in love with Tib, a half-Korean, half-Vietnamese woman (played by Kim Ok Bin) whilst in Vietnam. However, Tib's sister is opposed to the match, as she was hurt by a Korean man in the past, and so persuades her Tib to break off the relationship. Eun Woo returns to Korea broken hearted, only for his older brother Sok Woo (Lee Won Jong) to head off to Vietnam in search of a bride himself. But when he returns with a young woman on his arm, Eun Woo is horrified to discover that it is Tib! Oooooooh. Shall we have crying confessions in the rain? One can only hope so.

Sort of 'Miss Saigon'ish only with hotter men and angst and hopefully HEA.

You can dl it at various places, or Yesasia is selling it with English subs for $27.99.
