So. let's get to it )

And now I need an emotional break. Also, my craving to rewatch Tamra the Island is getting kinda insane. I posted this MV before but have it again.

It's official, I love this drama. I can actually see why the networks passed on it - it's indie and quirky and has a cast of unknowns and is not an upbeat, predictable (in a good way but still) drama like Dream High. The drama it reminds me most of, actually, is the jdrama Orange Days.

I don't really have a ship yet and don't really care if I get one. I don't care how the story ends, either - I just want to watch these uniformly fascinating people, each one of whom I love already.

So, What's Up is a musical, right?



And when you think 'musical,' you think chirpy and fun, right?

Think again.



I am about halfway into the first ep, and if "Dream High" was a musical if kdramas went Disney, What's Up is a musical if kdramas went 'indie 1970s director.'

I love it, but it's seriously dark.

You know, I really need to add a chirpy drama to my repertoir. Padam Padam and Tree with Deep Roots are both soul-scarring. What's Up and Me Too Flower are somewhat cheerier but that's like saying something is less bloody than WW2 - doesn't mean much. Neither is a bucket of laughs in the least. Ditto The Empress.

I think I am going to add Color of Woman to the mix before I go bonkers from all the emo.

In conclusion - will this prove to be the world's tiniest violin?

(I apologize for spamming - consider it a balance to dearth of posts in the last couple of weeks)

It's like feast or famine in the drama world.

For months, there was nothing remotely grabbing me, but all of a sudden I am deluged by dramas I am getting quite obsessed about.



One of these dramas is What's Up, a drama I've given up hope of ever seeing until cable rescued it.

I have only watched half of first ep before I decided I want to wait for subs (is anyone besides viki subbing this? I need softsubs, I loathe streaming), but I really liked what I saw. Im Ju Hwan is brilliant (but when isn't he?) as a street thief-hustler but I really like the rest of the cast too (a mix of actors and singers, but all doing a uniformly good job), the slightly grainy feel of the drama, and the character interactions. While I enjoyed both Dream High (until it lost me near the end) and Heartstrings, I think this has the potential of becoming my favorite 'bright musical talents in school' drama - not surprising with that writer.

The soundtrack is gorgeous.

And lest you think this drama is all SRS BSNS, it also has this:



No, I have no idea how many drugs were involved.

Me Too, Flower ep 2 continued to be amazing - an improbable but perfect mixture of wackiness and heartbreak. Both the leads keep hiding their damage under masks - hers of toughness and his of Puckish mischief. But the cracks begin to show.

A few caps from a few scenes )

Unrelated, but any idea who, if anyone, is going to sub What's Up? I need that drama!
