Because TPTB are a lot kinder to us than they are to poor beleaguered Kang To and company, we get one episode of Bridal Mask this week despite the Olympics. The preview is out, and to say it's a doozy, would be the understatement of the century:



translation of dialogue, plus my thoughts )

In news of other avengers against society, Kim Hyun Joong is joining the group and is filming City Conquest. I love revenge/action dramas but the difference between CQ and dramas like Bridal Mask or City Hunter is that Joo Won and Lee Min Ho have a lot of chops and so create the characters that ground the story and make me feel. Kim Hyun Joong, unless he massively improved between his last drama and now, cannot act if his life depended on it. Still, he and Jung Yumi are hella pretty together:

I have caught up with the latest INR2012 eps (how I am managing to keep up with 5 airing dramas, I'll never know) and as always, quite a delight.



The thing is, the more this goes on, the more I don't see their viability as a couple despite their chemistry and feelings - she is a little clingy and temperamental but it's not really her fault I see this never working out.



He is where the problem is - it's very clear he loves her, but he is maddeningly non-verbal and non-communicative about either his feelings (bad enough) or his expectations (fatal to a relationship). Sure, he doesn't like her pushing - then maybe articulate what it is he would like, and how he sees whatever relationship they have? (Not to mention she won't be as clingy if she knew where she stood). Reading between the lines gets exhausting, especially since she's not privy to the things we see as the audience (such as him buying up all of her pictures). I mean, she tells and asks him point-blank and still gets no response. Who wants to bare your heart to no reaction? The way he is right now, I don't think he can have a functional relationship with any woman, really. I can't say I am enthused about heroine with secondary guy either because there is little chemistry and he's so bland.

This was the coolest break-up ever though:






Serves you right. If I were her, I'd do a sex tape with Guy N2 and mail it to him.

I swear, this drama has more makeouts than every other kdrama I've ever seen put together. But shallowness aside, I think it has interesting things to say about relationships - LJW and JYM are sexually compatible and are also very close friends, plus, she is falling for him again and reading between the lines, so is he, so you'd think they would be the perfect couple but that is not the case - she is impatient and very hot-tempered (pretty clearly, every breakup was initiated by her in a fit of temper), plus awful about reading emotional subtleties and he is emotionally shut-down and abysmal about either articulating his feelings or letting her in to see anything vulnerable. Unless they work it out, any attempt to become a true couple again is doomed. It's not that a person with either of their tendencies cannot be in a happy and successful relationship. It's that it would be hard for people with those tendencies to be in a happy and successful relationship with each other. They either need to change or affirmatively accept that this is the way the other person is and work with it, and they haven't so far.

See a lot of evidence )

Joking aside, I have finished ep 2, am in the middle of ep 3 and adore it - the characters feel modern and relatable and with sex drives and I love the former couple/current best friends/living together/going for friends-with-benefits-with-ridic-chemistry thing that the leads have going. I wonder if I am imagining things though in ep 3 - LJW looked quite disappointed, though he concealed it quickly, when she told him she wanted just no-strings sex, though he was all 'great idea.' Am I alone in thinking that? He did yank her sushi away :P

Secondary dude is incredibly boring to me but I think it may be the actor - I liked his character OK in Chuno and disliked his character in Personal Taste but in neither did I find the actor in the least memorable or characters interesting.

I confess that when news of INR2012 came out, I had zero interest. Its thematic predecessor, INR2011, pretty much took everything I dislike in dramas and stuck it in one package. Chances of my considering INR2012 would have been nil, however the flisties raved, except for the fact that the makers cast Lee Jin Wook and Jung Yu Mi as the leads. I am a ridiculous fangirl for LJW, who not only does something funny to my hormones, but who also was the lead in one of my all-time favorite dramas, the ridiculously underrated Someday (or as I like to call it, the closest Korea came to 'Mars'). And I've had a huge soft spot for Jung Yu Mi since Que Sera Sera. With that and the flistie raves, I decided to check it out despite my misgivings.



What can I say? I just finished the first episode and the love cannot be contained! It's funny, sexy (hello there, cable!) and fresh. The story involves two former lovers who ended their long-term, on-again-off-again relationship 3 years ago but have remained best friends. CAN YOU SAY MY CATNIP? My big problem with INR2011 was that it revolved around a couple whose spark has gone out and where the boyfriend was a serial cheater - ummm, I am not rooting for that. Here I like both LJW's and JYM's characters - both are quirky and have faults, but are also cool and with ridiculous chemistry - I am simply salivating for them to get their act together and get back together. tVN has done it again!

Caps of two make-out scenes. I know what's important! )

My only regret is that I got 450-with raws for this ep because while this isn't using a Red One camera or wallowing in a huge budget, it is pretty and I love it enough to want HD raws. Next time!

I confess that, provided I think the idol in question can act, I love when idols get cast in stuff because their fangirls are great at ferreting pictures and spoilers and are enthusiastic enough to make cool stuff. Plus, subs!

Since the upcoming Rooftop Prince has Yoochun as the male lead, it is perhaps unsurprising fangirls have been at it again. The drama is yet to start filming, but I found this awesome 'preview' made by using cuts from Yoochun's and Han Ji Min's previous dramas (Sungkyunkwan Scandal, Miss Ripley, Yi San, Padam Padam).



I approve. Though this still reminds me how pissed off I was that Yoochun and Lee Da Hae didn't have a happy ending in Miss Ripley, even though logically I understand why that wouldn't have worked, the whole stepsiblings thing being the least of their issues. Grrrr. Still pissed! I can't believe monster parents are there living happy after the daughter had to suffer being a prostitute and turned into a conwoman with a destroyed sense of self and son pretty much had his heart so effectively broken, chances of him forming a functional romantic relationship with another human being are zip. Ahem. Tangent.

Also, Jung Yumi has been cast as the secondary girl. Why, Jung Yumi? Why did she go from the lead in the amazing Que Sera Sera to secondary girl roles in this and A Thousand Days' Promise! I mean, I love Han Ji Min more, so I am fine with JY being secondary in this, but I wish she had a better career.

Also, if I had to pick between this and The King (which luckily I don't), I'd give a slight edge to this despite my love for Lee Seung Gi and Ha Ji Won - fusion and time travel ftw.
