My most anticipated upcoming drama, King of Lan Ling has released a long trailer, focusing on the love triangle between our titular character, a prince who was a legendary warrior/general who wore a mask on the battlefield, played by my huge obsession Feng Shao Feng, Ariel Lin as a heir to a mystical powers tradition, and Daniel Chan as a King of Zhou. (Unsurprisingly, both Daniel and FSF play real historical people but Ariel plays a fictional one. Ariel/FSF is the OTP in this one).

That trailer makes me die of glee:



You can get translations for the trailer at the awesome Koalasplayground.

I AM DYING HERE!!!! (And not just due to the scene where FSF is fighting shirtless in a shower of petals and then sees Ariel. Talk about catering to my wildest id fantasies!). I mean!!!! The angst! The awesome war scenes! True and doomed love! Warlords vying for a beautiful woman and totally becoming lambs around her. Etc etc!!! Gimme!

Also, I remember reading ages ago about the upcoming (not sure if cdrama ot hk or what drama) called Hero with Kevin Cheng, Michael Tse, Ying Er, and Ken Chu (everyone seems to be either a hk or twactor except for Ying Er so I am honestly not sure which production it is). Hero adapts the famous story of one of the four beauties of ancient China. In Hero, Xi Shi (Ying Er) was used to bring down Fu Chai, the King of Wu (Kevin Cheng). Xi Shi's lover, Fan Li (Ken Chu) talked her into it on the behalf of the King of Yue, Gou Jian (Michael Tse). Gou Jian was defeated and made to be a slave to Fu Chai at one point and knows how to hold a grudge! Xi Shi's was actually adopted into a drama at least once before, the Conquest, with Chen Kun.

I remember reading about this and with the knowledge of the story and of the plot of the Conquest (where Xi Shi/Fan Li were the OTP to end all OTPs), my main thought was WTF!!!! What kind of woman would prefer Ken Chu over Kevin Cheng, especially Kevin Cheng who is utterly and madly in love with you? Especially when your boyfriend is basically asking you to prostitute yourself for patriotism in this version?! I mean, WTF!

Thankfully, the makers are not insane. In this version, Xi Shi ends up falling right back for Fu Chai, no doubt giving purists conniptions but me every possible glee imaginable. I am going to revel in their dooooooooooooomed love like there is no tomorrow!

Have a trailer!

First off, more Legend of Chu and Han goodies:



Mmmm, where are the Peter Ho fangirl flisties hiding?

Posters and embedded trailer )

This is going to be Eddie Peng's haircut for Da Mo Yao?



Even though I feel disloyal to Koala, I could so get on-board this train! The abs don't hurt.

Speaking of good-looking, I am simply agog to watch the upcoming King of Lan Ling, a war epic/love story which apparently is based on a legend about a warrior king so gorgeous he had to wear a mask into battle so as not to distract people (so like Chinese Finnick? :P) It's Ariel Lin's comeback to period cdramas and I love her in them, and it stars my darling Feng Shao Feng as the titular character. RAWR:



Though I confess, much as I adore FSF, I think it's a bit of a stretch to label him an unearthly beauty. I'd say Wallace Huo, who is so gorgeous it's unreal, or Huang Xiao Ming, who's pretty much perfection in human form, would fit the bill much better. And ditto Kevin Cheng, Chen Kun and Hu Ge. Also possibly Nic Tse. But not really FSF, attractive though I find him.

Examples of those gentlemen's beauty )

Finally, Nicky Wu is doing Bride with White Hair. I simply MUST watch that when it's out. Ahh, cdramas, always wonderful.

So, I am on episode 3 of Mystery In The Palace, the period mystery/intrigue/romance cdrama and I am addicted!!! I wasn't that enthused by the first two eps which were backstory, but now I am in the story proper and eeeee!

I mean, how could I not love it if the OTP are potentially siblings and going to think they are for a chunk of the drama (I am spoiled so I know they are not) and their first meeting involves her bossing him around, not knowing he is a prince (she is a seamstress) and hugs and adorableness x 11. Plus, the male half of the OTP is Kevin Cheng, one of only two men I have seen who looks gorgeous in Qing get-up and hair (and I can view this as a consolation for BBJX as he gets to live and get the girl).

Plus, I realized I love the Qing aesthetic - the indoor furnishings, the gardens, the clothes, women's hairstyles.

So yes, super-addictive.

I promise to reply to comments tomorrow. Am ridiculously exhausted and swamped (and trying to stay unspoiled for SUFBB 9-10. SPOIL ME AND DIE).

OK, on with the show...

1. Did you ever find yourself thinking "I wish there was another kdrama with the exact plot of You're Beautiful minus the awesomeness of Jang Geun Seok?" If so, your dreams are about to be realized. Channel A is getting ready to premiere The Ultimate Audition, a drama starring Park Yoohwan (Yoochun's baby brother) and a bunch of newbie idols, all about a girl cross-dressing to join an idol group and getting involved with the group leader, who's perfect in front of the fans but is actually a jerk in private. Sound familiar? If I were Hong Sisters, I'd be getting my lawyers up.



Your eyes bleeding yet?

Snark (and the fact that even writing the above paragraph reduced my IQ by a dozen points) aside, I am all set for the first ep to air, and I will be all over this baby. Sometimes I enjoy silly cotton candy and this makes me think of my fun twdramas of old. Now, let's hope there will be subs - viki doesn't have rights to cable stuff, this is likely to be too low-profile for dramafever and withs2, so my hope is in DS...

2. So excited for King 2 Hearts which makes me think more and more of some of my favorite shoujo. And darn if Lee Seung Gi doesn't look handsome in that uniform and with that hairstyle:



I normally fall for his characters like mad, but this is the first time I've found him gorgeous off the bat.

More pics. I want this out already! )

Also, Ha Ji Won is ridiculously gorgeous and I can't tell the age difference at all (I mean, I have no idea if it's supposed to be an older woman/younger man romance, but I am willing to buy they are the same age!)

3. Speaking of royals getting involved with kickass ladies, the posters for Rooftop Prince are out and they are all adorable (you can find them all on soompi and dramabeans) but this is my favorite:



This is going to be kooky adorable!

4. I have watched the first ep of the Qing palace mystery Mystery in the Palace, starring Gai Ting Ting and Kevin Cheng (a.k.a. the only man except for FSF to actually look gorgeous in Qing braid). It's gorgeous (the costumes! the sets!), the story is interesting, and the OTP (who may or may not be half-siblings) will be just my thing, if MVs and previews are anything to go by:



5. Apparently the OTPs of Dream High 2 are still as clear as mud 10 (out of 16) episodes in. There are ship wars. By this point, I think TPTB are just screwing with fangirls.

Why do I not have any Bu Bu Jing Xin icons? (Ah, cdramas. Overall, much as I enjoy Korean period dramas, nothing does it for me like period cdramas - they fit me ideally in terms of structure, pacing, approach.)

Checking out Huan Zhu Ge Ge, which is harmless dumb fun, made me crave a quality Qing story and, because I have no sense of self-preservation, I am currently selectively Ruoxi/Four-exclusively rewatching BBJX. Next, I shall progress to hitting myself over the head with a hammer for entertainment.

God, this is such a gorgeous, nuanced drama which manages to be both restrained and passionate, romantic and soul-destroying. GUUUUUUUH. It is also the one drama where I keep the raws just for capping.

And guess what, my obsession is your gain, because I bring you caps from this amazing scene in ep 17. (I took close to 500 caps, before I went culling. The less said...)



More more more MOAR!!!! )

It's funny because before the drama aired, I remember blabbering all over that BBJX story sounded boring, the trailers didn't work for me, Nicky Wu was much too old for Liu Shi Shi and looked like a gargoyle in Qing get-up. And then...ahahahaha. So much crow. I loved the story and thought LSS and NW had ridiculous chemistry with a few spare Universes to burn. And, while I still think Qing look is not for Nicky (unlike Kevin Cheng, who proved he's god among men, by performing a miracle and looking drop-dead-gorgeous even with the queue), it simply didn't matter - the sheer force of Four's personality and Nicky's charisma in the role, made my quibbles immaterial.

Speaking of the doomed pair, any rumors of them being paired again? Mainland seems to like to pair successful couples again, and if they do so here, I can pretend this is a happy AU which didn't end up murdering my soul. If that is too much to beg for, I'll settle for LSS with Kevin Cheng, if you are listening, TPTB! (Btw, when is Kevin's Mystery in the Palace coming out? I want!!! Except for Feng Shao Feng, he's the only man I've seen who's managed to remain gorgeous even with the half-bald/queue look).

Oh, my, episode 13.

You know which scene is behind the cut )

I am honestly 50/50 as to whether Ruoxi and Eight ended up just doing it right there, in the dirt in the middle of the woods. Hmmm.

I am out of subbed BBJX episodes so I've been scouring raws. And then I got to episode 20.

FYI: comment notifications seem a bit delayed.

I apologize in advance to everyone who has friended me for kdramas. I am on a major cdrama kick and probably will be for a couple weeks. Fair notice.



You know how I said I won't cap BBJX any more because repeat downloads of the same ep are a waste of time? Well, I lied. I downloaded ep 11 just so I could cap all the amazing Ruoxi/Eight scenes.

Enter here for cap extravaganza )

In other cdrama obsession news, since I just posted a Ruby/Wallace QSHF mv, have a Ruby/Yan Kuan one. I can tell I am going to ship them so hard it's going to hurt.




Mmmm. Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, who's a girl to choose? Maybe a poll...
