You know how I was obsessed with Shanghai Bund, or more specifically, getting my hands on it.



Well, due to the amazingness of [livejournal.com profile] vierran45, I have gotten my hands on the subbed first ep.



And it's official: it just might be the prettiest drama I have ever seen.



I haven't gotten much past credits because I was too busy capping like mad: I love the sepia tones and filters and selective colors.



And of course, the gorgeousness of Huang Xiaoming and Sun Li and 1930s outfits.



How could you resist a story about doomed love and the Mob and revenge?




Seriously. If you could, just check out these caps from the credits - I dare you not to want to watch!



Gorgeousness )

I am also watching Boys Over Flowers ep 18 and so far my thoughts are as follows:

1. Why Jandi doesn't go for the utterly amazing, caring, gorgeous, and fun Ji Hoo is a mystery known only to God. Not to mention they are writing them as canon anyway.

2. Woo Bin and Yi Jung = most awesome slash otp ever.

3. At the rate Yi Jung is putting liquor away, he is going to become an alcoholic. An alcoholic who likes to imitate Ghost.

4. Heeee! They even gave Woo Bin random angst. That is how you know it's a kdrama.

5. I need to know who the writer for this is so I can avoid his/her dramas in the future. Anyone who managed to turn the canon nazi hardcore Makino/Dom shipper that I am into someone bored by D/M and shipping the uncanon Rui/Makino is doing it very very wrong.

6. My irritation with BOF is especially strong because filmi-girl and I have been watching Meteor Garden and there the whole OTP, Rui, fiancee etc stuff is handled so infinitely better.

I am sure you've realized by now that my fannish interests tend to be sudden, rabid, and expire very quickly.

So alas, time has come for another fannish obsession to bite the dust - my interest in Boys Over Flowers is completely gone, cold. I will probably finish it on fast-forward just out of completist tendencies but any shred or interest in it is completely gone. Just like that. See, bad inconsistent writing will get you everywhere! It's not even annoyance at it any more (because that would demonstrate emotional involvement) just a boredom with it, with a side of "when is a new episode of ToGetHer coming out?"

So, I am sorry, no more BOF liveblogging - I just don't have enough interest to do it.

Unfortunately what has replaced it is:

a. obsession with the Taiwanese drama ToGetHer, which is quirky and funny and romantic done right. Alas, it's only an ep a week. *bites elbows out of need to watch more*

b. Even more frustratingly, my desire to watch 2007 version of Shanghai Beach which I cannot find with English subs anywhere. Trust me, I looked. Correction - I found first five eps subbed on d-addicts, but it's torrents which I cannot use, and even if I could use torrents, it's a fairly old upload so nobody is seeding. My one hope now is Taiseng. They sub a lot of period dramas and put them on DVDs. Surely 1930s is period, surely? GRAH. I am so desperate I might just watch the frelling thing raw. Told you - I am an extreme obsessive. In my defense, look at the pretty:
