OK, girl, stop MOPING.

The heroine of Loveholic, while freakishly pretty, and charmingly fragile, makes me want to pull her shiny hair out sometimes.

Seriously. Your former, then current, now-ex-again boyfriend has dumped you TWICE. First time was when he went to jail for manslaughter, and in a fit of drama-nobility, ditched you from behind bars. Brutally. Did I mention he was your high-school student, lady, so you are clearly not too stable to begin with?

Fine, fool me once and all that. Then he got out and you came across him, with a leggy thing his own age. And he was pushing you away again, and then you finally hooked up again anyway. And then he dumped you out of the blue, not only smooching the Other Woman in front of your face, but literally going down on his knees asking to break up.

Grant his wish and don't forget to kick him on the way out.

Granted, he is going through a Circus of PAIIIIIIN, because he is doing all this to protect you, as you are the one who is responsible for the manslaughter death (for which he took the fall) and he doesn’t want you to remember and he realized that by being with him you would. So he is a v-neck-shirt-wearing, hot-arms-carrying self-sacrificial romantic saint. (Also known as ‘typical dorama male.’) But you do not know that. All you know is that the guy is ditching you repeatedly!

Fine, he is hot, and has cheekbones of doom, and devours you with his eyes or what not. He can also prepare a mean pasta. However, since you are not watching this drama and thus are not privy to his tragic MANPAIN, he should come across to you as a Grade-A hot, cheekboned, eyeballing JERK. So stop weeping at him and waiting on his doorstep, and calling his cell.

Or maybe don’t stop, he angsts beautifully.

If you do angst at him, at least wear better shoes than those little pointy heels which look hellishly uncomfortable, and stop wearing pastels because sitting on the stones would ruin them.

You are engaged to a charming DA who has much better career prospects than an ex-con, and has also not dumped you repeatedly. Come on, you know you and your OTP will end up together eventually after more artful weeping and revelations, so seriously, just enjoy being married to someone who is gainfully employed for once.

ETA: Good. Good. Deciding to marry the guy with a good job and the one who has not publicly kissed other women in front of your face, is a smart choice. But why do you need to inform your OTP in person? A brief, collegial voicemail will do. Just don’t send him a wedding invitation by mistake, as he won’t be able to afford a wedding present on his construction job salary.

I overslept Veronica Mars last night! I was so exhausted, I sort of collapsed and that was it. Dammit, it sounds like it was a great episode too. Oh well, will obtain it ASAP.

How pathetic is it that I am excited it's Wednesday as it means only two days until the new Hanadan ep. My life is saaaaad. And speaking of Hanadan. Everyone should head over to [livejournal.com profile] tatterpunk's LJ and read the best damn ep 2 and 3 (and Domyouji) meta I've yet come across. Go here.

Am continuing with Loveholic (it's my emo drama and Hana Kimi is my fluffy one) and still love it, though I am still on ep 9. Mainly because spoilers for the ep )

Oh, according to folks at soompi, Kang Ta is going to star in a twdrama (or is it cdrama?) Which makes me gleeful as Chinese/Taiwanese dramas are my fave.

In my push to get more of my friendslist interested in checking the 'Best Drama Ever' aka Mars, I bring you an utterly unspoilery (unless it's a spoiler that the leads in Mars kiss a LOT) mv of it which is basically just four minutes of Ling and Qi Luo making out. Come on, don't you want to see a drama with THAT much physical affection going on? Yeah, yeah, I'll post good intro MVs later :)

MV behind cut )

And on Vic Zhou note, oh Vic, what are you making me do? As soon as I finish with one of my dramas, I am going to start Love Storm. Look at what you are making me do! The damn thing is entirely unsubbed! I am going to watch 20+ hours in Chinese! Grah.

Clearly, since Silence was the first drama I tried unsubbed, Vic Zhou=dangermousie going insane.

If you ask me why this is so weird, considering I am mainlining Hanadan raws, well how about this:

1. I know Hanadan plot from the manga/other adaptations so can figure out what's going on. I know nothing about LS except the really general premise.
2. Hanadan subs come out soon after. Love Storm is NEVER going to be subbed.
3. 20+ hours, people!

If only there was some website with even detailed summaries of the thing. But oh well, my previous scan-through of the drama indicated that there is spinny kissing on the beach and Vic getting shot protecting the OTP with his body, so language comprehension is not necessary for enjoyment :)

Oh, and while we are on subject of dramas and owning? Oh my. Hana Kimi. I love you with love surpassing that of women (or however that Biblical quote goes. Though seeing that I am straight, that is perhaps not much of a comparison).

You are so light and funny and cracktastic and perfect. Brief rambles on ep 5 )

Seeing Jiro be so awesome in HK made me go looking for KO One which is on youtube, but no subs. Boooo. I adore Jiro but he is no Vic Zhou so I think I'll be skipping KO1 for now. I did found this awesome MV for it from the KO1 sountrack with his character and what I assume is his OTP (it's the same set up as the Hana Kimi MV. It's their KO1 characters but not in scenes from the drama, but a separate little story). Anyone see KO1? Does he really fall for the teacher? It's an awesome MV in its own right, so check it out:

KO One MV behind cut )

In other 'Hana Kimi has eaten my brain news,' the fact that Wu Zun (Quan in HK) has a blog should not make me so gleeful but it does. And there are pictures and he posts in English (as well as Chinese) and I am glad to see that netspeak has spread everywhere. Of course, it's rather lowering to one's self esteem to see that he gets over 6300 replies to his messages while I've never gotten much above a hundred. Just because he is famous and hot and a star doesn't mean it makes sense :D Anyway, if you want to check out the crack for yourself go here.

To continue the 'yes, am still obsessive' theme, I found some awesome Wu Zun and Ella pics from some interview or other. I've also found the translation of that interview which amused me because I think it set off a new RPF frenzy (probably deliberately) :D

Awesome pics )

I have just realized something amusing. I was wondering why Loveholic wasn't giving me an instinctive 'I need to get used to it' vibe on seeing the lead pair together (he is a high-school student who is supposed to be 18 or so and she is a teacher in her mid-20s). After all, I had that with jdrama Forbidden Love. ([livejournal.com profile] alexandral, it's not because they aren't declaiming the wrongness of societal restrictions in this one, though they don't :D). And then I looked up the actors' ages. Kang Ta, who plays the student, is only a year or so younger than me! He was 26 when he did this drama! In fact, he is only a couple of months younger than Kim Min Sun, who plays his love interest! Yay! No wonder I was finding him hot. I don't generally go for teenagers :D The thing is, the age difference for purposes of the story is believable: he does look younger than she does. But not the instinctive subconscious wtf thing which it took me a bit to overcome with Forbidden Love, where Takizawa Hideaki was 17 and Matsushima Nanako was 26, just like their characters. (And he does have to be older because of the time jumps, in Loveholic).

Music video for Loveholic )

I must admit, kdramas and twdramas are much better for my self-respect. Guys in them are at least in their mid-twenties or older and some are even *gasp* in their thirties. In jdrama, with the exception of Kimura Takuya and Takeshi Kaneshiro, this isn't the case. I can't think of anyone I like over 25, though there are a bunch of guys who are getting close.

Oh, and in semi-related news, the security in canon is wonderful.

Why?

I was over at one of the drama forums reading the Hana Yori Dango thread and someone mentioned that Inoue Mao (who plays Makino, the heroine of HYD) did an interview where she says she prefers Rui (her first love) over Domyouji (the bad boy she hooks up with). It sort of reminded me of those Kristin Bell interviews in the context of Logan/Duncan.

But you know what was wonderful?

No one went mad. Everybody was 'heh, amusing' and wondering in a laid-back way if it means she prefers Rui/Makino over Domyouji/Makino.

And then it struck me why (because sorry, dorama fandom isn't much more sane than VM fandom).

Not only is Rui someone fandom generally loves (see, RT! It's possible to write a third person in the triangle as this guy who really is awesome as opposed to just the characters thinking he is), but unlike with VM where all the shippy stuff was up in the air, everyone knows how Hanadan ends (hello, manga adaptation!). People have either come to terms or squeed with glee over the fact that Makino/Domyouji are THE otp of the drama. So they don't have this anxiety or worry or anything. Which is nice.
