I am still dling IRIS and JIN and Next Stop Happiness has only 2 parts of ep 6 subbed (never fear, I watched them) so I decided to check out Hi My Sweetheart.

*shudder*

*shudder*

The horror the horror!

The unfortunate hero of this drama is welcome to be anybody's sweetheart, I suppose, but how he doesn't get dogs set on him in the street is a mystery. His face can stop clocks and give miscarriages to pregnant women. The fact that his personality makes an average dweeb seem cooler than James Dean is not helping either.

I have never, in all my years of drama watching, have seen a leading man so horrifically, appallingly repulsive-looking. I have never seen anything even approaching it. Show Luo, the actor, is an attractive man, and the amount of effort the makers have spent making him look like a fat, greasy, slightly-retarded mushroom is commendable but puzzling.

WHY?

Yes, I know, eventually, under weight of disappointment of being rejected by Rainie Yang, he will turn into a smokin-hot and cool dude but there is no way I, or anyone else I can imagine, would be willing to sit literally through episodes and episodes of disgusting, snail-like gnome to get to that point. Seriously? What the hell were they thinking.

I generally prefer more serious or off-beat twdramas to funny ones because I find the humor completely over-the-top but there have been exceptions through the years. Alas, with a human gargoyle as a male lead, there is no chance this will join the ranks.

I am indifferent to Show Luo one way or another but Rainie, darling, what are you doing in this? Oh well, if this horror is trade-back for the utter perfection of To Get Her, I can deal with this.

To cleanse the palate, TGH mv:



Ahhh, all better.

I do think I want to check out Roseate Love. Angsty shipping and a happy ending. YES.

Ep 6 of Next Stop Happiness is out. I cannot wait to watch it - it's like those guilty pleasure romances I used to read when younger :)

Also, apparently subs are out for eps 5-7 of IRIS. Oh. My. GOD. Not to mention I need to watch more JIN.

Are there other twdramas or jdramas I should be watching? (My kdrama slate is full). I sm tempted by Momo Love (because I adore Jiro and Cindy) and Hi Sweetheart sounds cute, and has Rainie and Show Luo but Show's horrifying terrifying wig/haircut is enough to scare me blind:



I've also been watching They Kiss Again - the thing is I ff through parts of it (some parts I adore some parts bore me) but the dvd player I was using doesn't allow the subs to be shown on fastforward so I will try it on a different one. It's my 'happy place' drama.
