Yes, am still watching Vigilantes in Masks - I realize it is glacially slow, but I watch it with Mr. Mousie, and coordinating our schedules to watch things together always takes time :)

Anyway, ep 19 was shipper heaven:






Make out and have wuxia babies already!

Also, we are finally getting Li Gexiao's backstory. His wife is kinda high-strung but I can see why someone as righteous as he likes someone so duty-dedicated and straightforward. Whatever - I don't want the flashback to take too long because modern day LGX >>> flashback LGX, even if I do like the latter, plus Sannyang is miles cooler than the dead wife.



Evil dude killed a dog in flashback. A dog! WTF! Not to mention, he keeps wondering why the girl he likes picked someone else - short answer - other guy saved her life repeatedly and is capable on many fronts, fighting included (which is something of a necessity in a violent society) and looks like Wallace Huo. You run away and hide to leave her to die and are as useful as a kitten. Also, you are a psycho who killed a dog!

So, that upcoming fantasy-romance sageuk with Kim Su Hyun and Han Ga In as the leads just had a casting change. Joo Won is out as the secondary guy and JUNG IL WOO IS IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Except now I am even more boggled. I was puzzled enough to wonder what heroine would prefer KSH to Joo Won and what casting director thought it was a good idea to pick KSH and not JW as the lead, but that puzzlement has increased tenfold now. Really? Really? You are going to have Jung Il Woo play second fiddle to Kim Su Hyun? In what Universe?

Also, I am puzzled as to why JIW would take a secondary role in a sageuk when he headlined one before (the marvelous marvelous Return of Iljimae which I want to rewatch now).

Now, before all the KSH fans jump down my throat - I don't dislike the guy. In fact, I think in a few years and with some more experience, he's going to be a great leading man. But the operative term is in a few years and I have no such qualifiers about JIW.

GRAH.

Here is JIW as Iljimae to cheer me up:

Can I ship Sannyang/Li Gexiao any harder? I mean, they were already damaged, deadly, honorable, with messed-up pasts, hot. So I thought nothing could make me ship them harder. Ep 12 proves that what seems impossible is not.

I was making incoherent noises at the screen at this sequence. )

Though they need to work on Gexiao's major suicidal tendencies. Seriously, dude! Volunteering to drink poison as an experiment = not a road to long life!

I am going to try doing something new. Let me know if it's a good idea.

The reason I love kdramas so is, in large part, due to their awesome leading men. So I thought I'd do a weekly post highlighting a different one of my favorites.



And the honor of being the first one in the series goes to...ta-dum...Park Shi Hoo.

All about Park Shi Hoo. A monster post )

OK, that took a while :)

FWIW, I am taking requests - you can post in comment if you want someone specific next time.

My current obsession with The Princess' Man sent me on a major Park Shi Hoo craving, preferably in something where the odds of a happy ending are not 0.02%.

And then I remembered I had all of Family Honor already in my greedy hot hands. And that FH was written by the same writer who wrote Gloria (one of my all-time favorite dramas) and Pick the Stars (a drama that I adored to a ridiculous degree). And I was set.




Two episodes in and I am so glad I decided to do this (though my eyeballs might not thank me as I foresee another marathon) - I am obsessed. Just as in Gloria and PtS, Family Honor features strong women and complicated men, a fascinating milleu, and secondary and even tertiary characters I find fascinating. Our heroine is a widow in a large, traditional, and pretty dysfunctional family. Our hero, played by Park Shi Hoo, is a nuveau riche upstart with a chip on his shoulder who cannot help but be fascinated by her. This is so good!

Have a MV:



I tried it ages ago but it was with horrific subs and awful vids so I couldn't stick it. But now I have great subs and crystal-clear vids and yeah...sleep is a distant prospect now. Also, pretty much airing drama except for The Princess' Man is likely on hold.

I AM OBSESSED.

Side note - what is it about Park Shi Hoo? He's nothing to look at in stills but the second he is on screen, my heart leaves my body and pretty much into his character's vicinity in a stage of slavish adoration. I am so glad TPM is a hit (its ratings keep rising - it was almost 17% for the latest ep) as this means more PSH on my screen. I have yet to see him in a role I didn't like even when the drama itself does not work for me (Iljimae, I am looking at you).

1. Wallace Huo's character is inching closer and closer to becoming my favorite drama hero of all time - the combination of heroism, a sense of humor, an idealism he's willing to back up with his body (I have NEVER seen a drama character who gets injured so much. He's won first place from previous title-holder - Song Il Gook's character in Lobbyist), mad skills, trauma, and utter indifference to his own future? It's as if it's designed for me! My description of a cross between Song Tae Ha and Hong Gil Dong still stands.

Plus, no man should be allowed to be this gorgeous. It could stop traffic.



2. I am totally beginning to ship Sanniyang with him! She is so no-nonsense, this is exactly what he needs, seeing how messed-up he is. And she can win over his stubborness, this is quite a feat.



Loved it when she made him drink that medicine by explaining how selfish he is to be always wanting to keel over (yay, she totally sussed him out) - why did he require their assistance in rescuing the poor then? And he drinks the medicine after all. She is awesome. Also, he's beginning to see parallels to his dead wife which is - yeah, pretty important. It's going to be interesting.



Also, she's an awesome fighter and tough and ILY, Sanniyang.

3. All the members of YZM seem to have awful backgrounds, but I especially felt bad for Hu. Eeeeeek!



Never cease traumatizing me, drama!

I am watching this rather slowly because I am doing it with Mr. Mousie, but I love every second!

Well, not really, as it would involve group sex and cheating on Mr. Mousie, but metaphorically speaking - oh yes!

ViM/Strange Hero Yi Zi Mei is so ridiculously awesome, my fangirl self would like to roll in it. I was planning to wait until Jiang Hu subbed first 15 eps but my impatience got the better of me and I started with 10 being subbed.

Finished the first subbed ep, and I am obsessed.



This is our hero. He's an alcoholic who throws fights for money, teaches street orphans and is a former high-ranking cop who broke after his wife was killed. He's also going to turn into Chinese Robin Hood and is played by Wallace Huo, a.k.a. one of the very few cdrama actors who can give Huang Xiao Ming a run for his money in the 'utterly stunning' department. And scruffy, rough, and with a "I don't care about anything" vibe here, he's hitting every kink I didn't know I had. He must reek, possibly have live parasites in his hair and would probably call you by his wife's name when you are getting handsy, and I'd still hit it like a ton of bricks.

Add in a tight storyline, some gorgeous cinematography, and a tough-as-nails thief heroine played by a huge Mousie favorite Liu Shi Shi and I sense a sleepless obsession is about to take a ridiculous hold. You know how good it is? Mr. Mousie is now addicted and really wants to watch more. Only two dramas he ever liked were Hong Gil Dong and Kareinaru Ichizoku. So that's saying a lot.

Some caps here - heavily Wallace Huo-centric )
