1. Episode 3 of JIN
was wonderful. But when is that drama not?( Unspoilery caps here )
Now I am about to watch ep 4. EEE!
2. Speaking of jdramas, Tokyo Dogs
y/n? How is it?
3.I have watched ep 12 of You're Beautiful
and the last two scenes (starting when Tae Kyung finds out about pignose meaning and realizes Minam likes him and leading to his uniquely TaeKyungian confession to her)
were adorable. So was the Marie Antoinette scene (God, I love Tae Kyung). But oh, my irritation with Minam grows and grows - I wonder how on earth she manages to get dressed in the morning without help, seeing how helpless and dimwitted she is, needing to be rescued from situations a 5-year-old can extricate herself from (the thing with the medicine this ep - really, drama? REALLY?). Her lack of backbone is also severely irritating - meekness is one virtue she has in overabundance. If the meek shall inherit the earth, Minam is due for a whole galaxy.
4. I love my Kindle (on which I get a lot of questions and comments from random people, including fellow commuters, waiters, and tourists) every day. Latest thing I am reading on it is Nickel and Dimed
which I do not care for as I find the author intellectually both lazy and dishonest. Lady, I've been poor, on-welfare poor even - what you are doing ain't it - not only can I think of about 10 ways to save money none of which she follows only to then complain about untenability (Geez, you'd have more money to live on if you bought your clothes at Goodwill or charities, lived in a group home, and took furnishings from garbage - either commit to your freaking experiment or do not. There is one scene that made me livid where she decides not to do telemarketing because of personality incompatibility. Bloody ha! They used to pay $10/hour for it because of people dealing with stress - you are NOT doomed to work %6/hr dishwashing job, and another when she doesn't apply for a clerical job because she thinks she can't afford 5 businessy outfits - well, of course not, she bought a $30 of slacks somewhere for work - when you are broke, go to fucking charity or a thrift store or Goodwill), but her "I am slumming it" attitude makes me sick, as is her lack of discussions for built-in progressions in minimum-wage jobs), but it's a good read because it makes me think about various topics, even if only to disagree vehemently. I found the book pretty damn insulting.
5. I am tempted to watch Princess Lulu
because pre-Last Scandal/IRIS Jung Joon Ho is the male lead (and the female lead is Kim Jung Eun (Lovers), whom I like). I've heard it was a trainwreck though - so yes or no on the watching? Let me explain - seeing my obsession with JJH it would have to be truly spectacularly awful for me to skip.
6. Apparently Lee Seon Gyun (Coffee Prince, Triple etc) and Gong Hyo Jin (Hello Teacher, Thank You), two of my huge favorites, are starring in a drama which is going to air after Queen Seon Deok. YES!!!! I adore GHJ to bits and ditto for LSG (finally, a leading role!)
7. Finally, the most important item. WITHS2 released VIA subs for IRIS
ep 8. Guess who is a VIA member?????? YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.
