Indeed.

I adore Bollywood movies, as most of you know. However, I have ventured into South Indian movies (Tamil, Telugu, Malayam, Kannada etc) very rarely. In fact, I think I have only seen 4: Bombay (which was dubbed into Hindi and starred Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala); Kandukondain Kandukondain (starring now Bollywood mainstays Aishwaria Rai and Tabu); Dumm Dumm Dumm, and Nuvvostante Nenoddantana.

Honestly speaking, I had no interest in watching more, even though I liked Bombay, DDD, and NN and didn't mind KK. Bollywood kept me fully occupied when I craved an Indian movie fix but also - let's be honest here, I am shallow. I want my movies to have hot men. And with the exception of rather appealing Madhavan in DDD, the Southie actors in the other three movies, not to mention random pictures I have seen of them around were anything but hot by my standards - beefy if one is being kind (and rotund if not), with a bushy mustache and a week's-worth of stubble on their chin, and not ever able to see forty again were all not my bag.

But clearly, while I am sure there are plenty of Southie male stars who look like retired gym teachers, I have been looking in the wrong places and there are apparently hot guys in other Indian movie industries beside Bollywood!

Enter for proof )

So, any recommendations for Southie movies starring Allu Arjun, Madhavan, Vikram, Prabhas, Dhanush or other hot guys? I don't care which genre they are in, but they have to have English subs and be relatively easy to find.

In other news, somebody found and posted this spoilery pic from the set of My Name is Khan, starring Shahrukh Khan and Kajol.

Here it is )

This is Go Soo, star of awesome revenge drama The Green Rose (the angst! the manpain! the delicious revenge!) and a bunch of other dramas which I haven't seen (but Piano is on my very very short list: forbidden stepsibling love! gangsters! threats of suicide! Go Soo and Jo In Sung competing in who has bigger manpain!).

He just recently got out of the army and I am glad to see that while there he spent his time productively.

(This has been making rounds on blogs, but I want to add my own small mite to spreading it around...)

Because the present lack of new Powerful Opponents subtitles is killing my soul, I decided to sate the craving with the next best thing: a substitute.

Said substitute? A BBC 'movie' from 1997 which also involves a reserved bodyguard appointed to guard a son of the establishment member, and they both fall for the same girl.

Namely, The Student Prince, starring Robson Green, Rupert Penry-Jones, and Tara Fitzgerald.

Robson Green, not suffering horrendously for once (Touching Evil scarred me for life with its angst) plays Barry, a government agent of blue-collar background who not too pleased to be assigned to guard an offspring of the Royal Family who just started at Oxford. However, Barry ends up becoming fond of his sweet and dim charge (RPJ). Now, if only both of them didn't end up liking the same girl, an American student played by Tara Fitzgerald (whose arguable accomplishment is managing an accent that, while not in any way American, doesn't sound British either).

While PO is way better in terms of plot (they have 16 eps!) and its heroine is immeasurably cooler, PO also doesn't give us this:



Indeed.

A few more caps from that scene and a couple of others )

And yet, my slashmeter shows its pickiness and selectiveness by not slashing the guys in this at all, despite the scene above. I mean, if this happened in PO with Hot Bodyguard and President's Son, I'd be hitting the stratosphere of slashtasticness.

Oh, and since I love both guys in PO, I decided that they should model the ending on the ending of this, where each guy ended up with an OTP after all.

And speaking of PO and OTPs, this vid made me melt and squee. It's been put up as a preview for ep 9, but what really gets me is the minute before that, which is last minute of ep 8. OMG. Lady Bodyguard/President's Son EEEEEE! (Honestly, I find all three of them so hot, and ship any of them with any of them, that OT3 might be the only way to go).

Vid here )

And speaking of Robson Green, anyone else remember Me and Mr. Jones, a totally delightful BBC movie which was a love story between a (female) Prime Minister and a (male) tabloid journalist. It was so adorable.

I found a dance scene from it (made me die) on youtube:

Me and Mrs Jones vid here )

Can you tell I like Robson Green?

Snow Queen is getting better and better. I finished ep 7 earlier and by this point, a lot of kdramas start to drag, but not this. This just draws me in more and more, and not just because I literally space out occasionally from how pretty Hyun Bin is. Especially when he wears black and/or suits.

I’ve decided I know what I want for the end. More than the OTP together, more than anything, I want Tae-Woong to be at peace and to progress with his life. Even if Bo-Ra dies (and who are we kidding, she is someone with serious illnesses in a drama. The only time that premise surprised me with its ultimate end was in Tattakoi), I don’t want Tae-Woong to descend again into depths of despair. He is too good a guy.

Thoughts on eps 6 and 7 )

Some SQ pics from eps 6 and 7:

ETA: everyone should check out the Hyun Bin pics [livejournal.com profile] outof_focus posted in replies in my Hyun Bin picspam post.

One of the reasons I've decided kdramas are my favorite is, shamelessly, the men.

I am planning to do a 'kdrama boy' primer soon, but for now, let me say: they are tall, they are hot, and they have the cheekbones of doom!

I am shallow.

And if you don't believe me, fine. This was an introduction to the real purpose of this post (and proof of the above), pictures of the press conference for the upcoming kdrama The Devil starring Joo Ji-Hoon, arguably the most gorgeous kdrama boy (and definitely the tallest, at almost 6'2"). Oh, and Shin Min Ah and Uhm Tae-Woong too :D

There is grinning, there is formal wear, and there are a LOT of pics.

A little taste:



Ready, set, drool. The leads of The Devil )

Yeah, I am in a spammy mood today.

The spam of choice? The upcoming Korean drama The Devil starring Joo Ji-Hoon (Goong), Shin Min-Ah (A Love to Kill) and Uhm Tae-Woong (DGCG).

I did a synopsis on it some time ago so am too lazy to redo it, but basically it involves: romance, killers, childhood revenge, hidden identities and who knows what else. Rumor has it that JJH plays a serial killer. If that is the case, 'hot enough to kill' (which he generally is) is a whole different thing here :)



Some pics here. Warning. May cause hyperventilation and dizziness. Seriously. He's hotter than in Goong here )

Some intriguing stuff on the plot )

And because hey, I love Lee Jun-Ki, a couple of pics from his upcoming Time Between Dog and Wolf:

More sharp suits here )
