JWC trailer is as delicious as I thought it would be - crazy fights, gorgeous Uee and a general wuxia vibe. In fact, if I did not know this was a kdrama, I'd assume it was Chinese. Cha Tae Hyun is still the opposite of what I find attractive, but I can deal.

And here is the trailer for next week's I Miss You, which I need in my life asap. It looks just like the type of romantic melodrama I like and also, for the first time in my kdrama-watching experience, I find myself, much as I adore Yoon Eun Hye and Yoochun, wishing the whole drama was childhood portions.

Finished Arang and the Magistrate which satisfied me all the way through to the end, but I don't have much to say about it.

In other news, Yoo Seung Ho has been case as the second male lead in Yoochun/Yoon Eun Hye's romantic melodrama I Miss You - I am more and more excited for this drama with every announcement.

Ironically, YSH is ten years younger than YEH, the same difference that is appalling me in Joo Won's new drama - but the thing is, YEH looks gorgeous and vibrant and young and I can see anyone from 15 to 50 falling for her. While Choi Kang Hee - the less said, the better. I'd think her wrong for 40+ Lee Byung Hun!!! That's an actress that should be playing an ahjumma with those looks and that tired vibe and the mugging thing she has going.

1. In my greedy little hands is episode 19 of Faith.



I am about to pick up Baby Mousie so no Faith for me until later today (or, possibly, tomorrow morning *gasp*) but I am giddy like a five-year-old with a new bike. Also, new hair! Yes! I am all for back to the curl! Plus, it symbolizes him giving up duty for her blah blah blah YESSSS.

2. Speaking of hair, this is Yoochun's haircut for I Miss You. With bonus police uniform. I like.



3. And last but not least, because I am an equal opportunity shipper/angst-lover, here are Christian and Valentine from Parade's End yearning for each other.




Look on the bright side, Edwardian thwarted lovers - if you were in a kdrama, you'd probably also be siblings!

1. One of the best things about Yoochun being cast in a drama is that his fangirls are a supremely dedicated bunch and thus you can be sure of a ton of MVs and other things. I mean, someone made a speculative trailer of I Miss You already, splicing Yoochun and Yoon Eun Hye's other dramas:

http://youtu.be/aPoVhOdQ4mY

It's utterly gorgeous. Mmmmm, I am super-excited for this drama - I love the leads and the writer to bits.

2. Speaking of fanworks, I am so lucky with Faith. The ratings for my obsession are mediocre, but the (English-language) fandom seems to have glommed on to it in a huge way. The soompi thread has over 600 pages (!!!!), we have a number of bloggers talking about it, and some very talented people are producing fanfics and vids. Compare it with May Queen, which has almost twice the ratings, yet the blogosphere is pretty dead about. This is all a long intro to a comment that I went hunting for MVs and found some gorgeous ones:



3. Apparently, Kim Bum has been confirmed for That Winter the Wind Blows. Noh Hee Kyung must have really liked him in her previous drama, Padam Padam (he WAS excellent). I've seen some fangirls upset that, once again, it's not the lead, but I really respect his choices - he keeps picking projects by a good writer which entail bouncing off some real heavyweights (in PP, it was Jung Woo Sung and here it will be Jo In Sung). I actually think these are great choices for him.

4. Last but not least, I keep wondering who will be the leading lady in Joo Won's upcoming drama. A lot of the likely candidates are busy. I think it would fun if it was Park Min Young - if I still like her after the horror that was Dr Jin, then clearly she can do no wrong in my eyes.

5. I am currently only following 4 airing kdramas - Five Fingers, Nice Guy, Faith, and Arang and the Magistrate. This is so much easier on my schedule (I dropped The Horse Healer and Oohlala Spouses, at the very least postponed The Great Seer, and I can't say I am watching Glass Mask in any consistent fashion).

Oh, Good God.

According to Koala, the latest contenders for the leading lady role in Yoochun's melo 'I Miss You' are Gu Hye Sun and Lee Min Jung.

TPTB must really hate me!

Those are the only two kdrama actresses I cannot stand. I might even be prepared to tolerate Jang Nara more than those two. GHS is the worst kdrama actress I've ever seen - I can deal with wooden but it's hard to ignore when someone on your screen constantly emotes like a chipmunk on speed - I've seen her in Boys Over Flowers, Absolute Boyfriend, The King and I, that ridiculous Eric fusion thing, and she was uniformly unbearable in every single one. To add insult to injury, she has little chemistry with her costars and I don't find her in the least good-looking. UGH. BARF.

Lee Min Jung is objectively pretty (though she makes me think of a borzoi for some reason), and isn't as teeth-grindingly bad as GHS but I just cannot stand her. That started with BOF, where her appearance (and utterly ridiculous amounts of screentime) signified the turning point of when this drama went from awesome to flaming trainwreck. The disaster that was BIG did not help. In general, she just irritates me for some reason. I mean, I even skipped MIDAS with my obsession Jang Hyuk because she was in it.

Basically, either one of them in, I am out. The end.

Seeing that a bunch of new kdramas are either about to start or have been announced, I thought it would be fun to do one of those periodical 'here is what's coming up, and here are my 2 cents' posts.

Below are all the upcoming kdramas that are on my radar, alphabetical order, and what I think about them.
