dangermousie: (My Girl kiss by meganbmoore)


I have restarted my sporadic on-off watching of Hello Miss.

It's a kdrama I enjoy when I watch but then I turn the TV off and forget about it for months. There is nothing there to 'grab' me.

And I keep trying to think what the problems with it are: it's filmed in bright pretty colors, the plot could be fun crack (our heroine, a cooky and old-fashioned head of a family long on history but short on money gets a job in a company where she interacts with two very different cousins who are heirs of it), and the cast is rather a darling.

But that's the thing. Lee Da Hae might be in the running for my favorite Korean actress, but even she must be given something to work with. Lee Ji Hoon might be full of effortless charm as the male lead, but the same applies. And the problem is the script and the direction. The story tries to come across as the super-successful My Girl at times (cooky heroine played by Lee Da Hae, two cousin-best friends in love with her, one a serious working type and one a playboy) but it's not MG at all, but at best an inferior (and sometimes tiresome) copy.

Let's start with the heroine. Yu-Rin in My Girl is one of my all-time favorite kdrama heroines. Yes, she might be quirky, but it's realistically enough so, and she is also tough, pragmatic, intelligent and very very human. You fall in love with her and you certainly see why the composed Gong-Chan goes so crazy for her and why the playboy Jeong-Woo is ready to reform his silly ways for her. She is someone making the best of a tough life and less than an ideal situation and you root for her.

But LDH's character in Hello Miss is almost a cartoon. The director didn't reign her in at all and the script gives her little to work with, so she comes across as this weird oddball caricature of a charming eccentric, all tiresome ticks and very little heart. Shrill. Unreasonable. Immature. The only reason she is not unbearable to watch is because Lee Da Hae has so much natural charm and appeal that you cannot dislike her. HM is one of 5 dramas I've seen LDH in, and the only one where you don't really get the sense that the character she portrays is a real person. The unscrupulous party bad-girl in Sweet 18, the wounded schemer in My Girl, the stoic and grief-stricken businesswoman mourning lost love in Green Rose, the determined single mother in Robbers. They all came across as real, however unrealistic their situations might have been, but I don't get that sense from her Hello Miss character at all.

The same is true for Lee Ji Hoon. This is the first drama I've seen him in, and I am rather smitten. Physically, he is not my type (too girly looking, not enough cheekbones) but the charm is undeniable and irresistable. And the character himself is probably the nicest male lead in a kdrama I have ever seen. Someone who is well-adjusted, hardworking, dependable, with a sense of humor, from a well off and loving family, and with a great deal of kindness and a noticeable lack of an ex, basically cannot be bettered. But...the drama actually turns it into a problem! Now, I don't expect Lee Da Hae's character to fall for him right away because love is one of those subjective emotional things (and then where would be the drama?), but the fact that she is openly hostile to him and won't treat him even with a sort-of general vague friendliness you treat people you casually know and like well enough ends up making at least this viewer irritated with her heroine and forced to view her as either unforgivingly shrill and bitchy for no reason or just so dim she cannot notice that her co-worker/boss is a very nice person.

And past a certain point it makes you wonder what on earth is wrong with Lee Ji Hoon for falling for someone like that.

There are things to like about this drama: the secondary characters are, for the most part, fun, including the secondary girl who, for once, has no interest in the hero, but instead has issues with the heroine stemming from their childhood together.

But...nothing basically happens. That's right, in addition to the tiresome 'quirks' noted above, there is no inherent conflict in the situation: whether from external circumstances (family opposition, deceptions, conflicts of interest etc etc) or characters' internal issues or flaws (old love to be gotten over, emotional frozen-ness, etc). What we are left with are two well-adjusted people in a good situation. So any conflict that makes the drama go for 16 eps is entirely artificial and manufactured and thus exasperating. If the only obstacles are ridiculous misunderstandings that go on for too long because the heroine is too dim and too set in her opinion to solve sooner...it's not fun, is it?

I don't mean to rant. HM is not a bad drama, by any means. But it's not great, either, and it could have been so much better!

But then I look at the cap above and melt.

Somewhere in episode 3, I fell in love with Hello Miss. Or, more importantly, I fell in love with Dong Gyu (the hero) and my desire to see him get what he wants (namely the heroine) and seeing how that is accomplished.

I have started HM ages ago, and liked it, but didn't love it, so being me, I sidetracked. But even then, I adored Dong Gyu, who is surely one of the sweetest, well-adjusted, and awesome drama heroes out there.

But still, this wasn't a push to watch it again, until [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore started posting about it.

And sometime in the middle of ep 3 I got to this scene and was a goner.

I swear to you, that all the below fashion horrors occur within the five minute span.

(These are from ep 3 of Korean drama Hello Miss, which is otherwise adorable. But whose fashion designer, like so many drama designers, was clearly hired through an affirmative action program for the blind).

Sample:

Whether it's the pigtails (are you five?), the melted strawberry-sundae dress, or the hideous heart sewn on it (in the wrong place), there is so much wrong with this picture, I don't know where to start:

Yes, I have tons more thoughts on Saawariya. Spoilery ergo behind cut )

And speaking of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, here is one of my favorite moments in Bollywood ever, Sameer and Nandini's first meeting:



Oh God.

And here is one of my favorite songs from the movie, the very last one. Ajay is taking the torn Nandini to Salman, who is ecstatic.

HDDCS song )

Oh SLB, never change. Never ever. Who do I have to kill for you to make Bajirao Mastani?

In non-Bollywood news, a question: which drama should I finish first: My Name is Kim Sam Soon or Hello Miss? I have approximately the same amount of episodes left. Or should I finish Sapuri instead?

Speaking of Sapuri, do the the Sapuri lovers on my flist realize that the manga this is based on, has just been released in the USA? (!!!!!!) I saw the first volume (entitled 'Suppli') in the local Barnes&Noble and couldn't believe my eyes. I didn't get it yet, but I did an omnibus of the first three volumes of Tsubasa. I started watching the Tsubasa anime last year and got sidetracked but what I've seen I loved...

OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!!!!

How much do I love Dong Gyu (Lee Ji Hoon) in Hello Miss?

Seriously.

He is amazing.

I like Lee Da Hae's heroine quite well, but she is a bit stubborn and childish. No big, but faults.

But I have no qualms, complaints or anything about DG.

In fact, I literally squealed out loud right now.

I mean, I knew he was laid-back, and funny, and secure in himself but not boasty, and a little tongue tied, and very very kind.

And he likes LDH's character even if he didn't realize it himself yet.

But. BUT. BUT.

What made me die wasn't even his buying her a cellphone, or trying to protect her from pyramid scheme people (and he has no idea how to fight so gets thrashed) or even his getting her to go back in again for a model contest after she walked out, even though if she gets the money it means she won't need to sell the house which he is trying to buy because his grandpa wants it.

No, what made me completely die was the bit during competition. LDH's character is old-fashioned and conservative but she is competing in this model thingy where DG is one of the judges. And she is wearing a skimpy, tied around neck dress and she gets a bit carried away with posing (I love the look on DG's face, amused and entraced all at once). And then one of her straps is untied and the dress falls (not enough to show breasts because she catches it, but still) and she is so horrified and confused and humiliated (very oldfashioned, as she is, that must be the worst) and everyone just looks on, embasarrment or amusement except for DG. DG just automatically jumps up as soon as it happens and runs to her (and he doesn't care what those people will think) and wraps her around in his suit jacket, sort of half-hugging her, and yells for them to dim the light and...

ohhhh...

ohhhhhhh....

OHHHHH....

And then she runs off and he is looking for her, to make sure she is OK.

There is nothing I like as much in fiction as a decent, sweet, nice guy.

ETA: I want to watch Bae Yong Joon's newest drama so badly. Swords! Angst! Just look at this MV:

I am watching Hello Miss and it's adorable in its adorable adorableness. Is it enough 'adorable' in this sentence? No, not yet. Lee Da Hae is so squishableas the wacky yet oddly vulnerable girl with impeccable background but not enough money and Lee Ji Hoon is beyond cute as that rare drama hero: a genuinely good, sweet, kind and unmessed up guy. I also love the lawyer brother and the tough/vulnerable model girl (yay for cool secondary OTP). Hate the other guy though. Blinding hate, you useless parasite.

They have the cutest chemistry.

A few caps from first ep



More Caps here )

In other news, I am continuing with Bichunmoo and I love it more and more. Not draggy at all, and perfect balance of love and fighting. And oh, the shippiness. I nearly died when she was taken by evil magistrate in the night, anyway (and I love that she tried to fight and run away, but of course, she can't fight and gets caught again). And even though Jan-Ho has been banned from leaving the mountain, he can sense something is wrong and he sets off at a dead run when he sees she is gone from her house. And he breaks into the fortified palace (!!!!!) and he is all alone, confronting the magistrate and his guests as they try to make Xiulie dance. And he is so young and noble and honest. And he says he will pay her debt, to let her go, but they won't. And he fights all the guards. OMG. I neverly died again at the look on her face when she sees him defend her.

And when they are out of there, I love how they sit quietly together, and she ties his arm (it was cut, and didn't even notice it). And she tells him when she first met him, she took him for a robber, didn't realize he will be a white knight. And they share private things about growing up. I love them. So much.

Only the villain was at that party and now he figured Jan-Ho has the manual he wants. Yikes.

Oh, and even though I haven't yet finished Coffee Prince the caps under the cut made me swoon and swoon and swoon and swoon.

This way to smoochies )

In non-drama news, I am reading and loving Liz Smith's fantasy/mystery series. SO GOOD. And I bought LJ Smith's The Vampire Diaries and the read is very fun.

Only the villain was at that party and now he figured Jan-Ho has the manual he wants. Yikes.

Oh, and even though I haven't yet finished Coffee Prince the caps under the cut made me swoon and swoon and swoon and swoon.

This way to smoochies )

In non-drama news, I am reading and loving Liz Smith's fantasy/mystery series. SO GOOD. And I bought LJ Smith's The Vampire Diaries and the read is very fun.
