If there is one thing watching wuxia dramas taught me it is that if there is some sort of famous saying about your martial prowess, you might as well make out your will. In Three Kingdoms, there was one about Lu Bu and his horse, and Lu Bu met a grisly grisly death (though his horse fared much better). Now there is one about beggar guy and fugly cousin in DG&SD so I am pretty sure both of them are toast. Unless one of them turns into a horse, that is.

In other news, was checking my downloads, and DG&SD promises me the below. I have no idea what is going on, but I do believe these are the bodies of sibling makeouter's parents. I foresee epic angst. Am I a bad person for saying I cannot wait?





Clearly, in wuxia world, if you are parents and you have a hot heroic kid, you are doomed to die in a grisly fashion to provide him with some character-building misery and possibly a vendetta.

Oh, and another thing I learned from wuxia. All parents are insane. This is from Heaven Sword & Dragon Sabre. That is a hell of a motherly dying advice to give to your little kid as he's freaking out over the murder of his father, not knowing his mother is about to follow suit. Way to screw him up for life, lady!




Of course, none of these are as cool as the one about the fact that having a hot female master means you simply must practice kung fu naked in a field of flowers, that I learned years ago, courtesy of ROCH.



Yeah, kung fu practice. That's what all the cool kids are calling it these days :P

I think I need a wuxia break, I am sort of overdosing. I am going back to Romantic Red Rouge.

Because it looks awfully pretty. I am hoping 2001 as that's the only one I can find with subs.

Also, is Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre 2009 worth checking out? I tried the first ep and was completely confused but it does look gorgeous and has Ady An. Plus, the same guy made ROCH2006, one of my huge favorites which also had confusing and boring first couple of eps and then went awesome. I know earlier eps are backstory so can someone tell me when story proper starts and I'll start with those eps and try again. Have a MV:

I have watched the first ep of Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre, the 2009 version. It was gorgeous but made no sense - I am totally lost as to what is going on or who these people are. I am going to stick with it for a few eps because Return of the Condor Heroes 2006, made by the same people, had the same problem - first couple eps were odd and left me utterly confused but then it just got amazing after that and everything fell into place. Let's hope this follows the pattern. But as for now, it is so incredibly visually beautiful. Just check out the credits.



Credits caps )

Also, I was rewatching Smile - totally underrated - I really need to do a 'most underrated dramas' list - and have some shippy darlingness from ep 3. I am always so impressed by Matsujun - his gentle, tentative, beaten-down Vito has nothing in common with arrogant, thick-headed Domyouji.



Cuter than puppies )

And last, but not least, I stole this Mars mv from [livejournal.com profile] ambergold. It's so incredible. Mars was my first drama, all these years ago and the reason why I have become a drama nut - I was so obsessed with it. And all these years later, it's still possibly my favorite drama. Ever. Two incredibly damaged people who find and love and heal each other? Oh YES.

After seeing the universal loathing for Love or Bread (even Summer x Summer and Peach Girl twdramas have their defenders on my flist but not this one), I am skipping it. Which means I need a tw/cdrama. Luckily I have two candidates all lined up, both wuxias.

One is Fox Volant of the Snowy Mountain. Have a MV:



The other is Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre. It's easiest for me to find 2009 version but I don't mind the 2003 if I find subs. Still, 2009 has Ady An so I'll probably stick to it.



Yay.

It's an addiction.
