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:

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] att123 for the heads-up. Below is the 15 min preview for Mischievous Kiss.



You have no idea how giddy and in love I am with this. I want this to have already aired. I feel myself obsessed to a ridiculous degree - this is giving me such a Goong and Boys Over Flowers (first half of BOF when it was good) vibe. The heroine even looks a little like Yoon Eun Hye circa Goong. She looks like she will act her socks off, too, and I really love what I've seen of Kim Hyun Joong - he's totally gorgeous but he's also got the vibe of the character down pat (but then I thought he did a decent job in BOF, contrary to majority fandom opinion, so take it for what you will). I love the bright colors and the fun vibe and everything, everything, everything.

In case you somehow missed what MK is about, it is based on a very famous manga about a girl who is spunky and cheerful, if not too brainy, who has long set her sights on the handsomest, smartest boy in school (who also has the personality and understanding of human emotions equal to that of a robot). He may think he wants nothing to do with her, but nothing is going to stop her. She should join the Canadian Mounties because she always gets her man :)

dangermousie: (Iljimae: Shi Ho hat by alexandral)
Apparently, China is making its own version of Iljimae, to come out in November and starring Wallace Huo and Liu Shi Shi. In this version, Iljimae is a high official who loses it when his beloved wife is killed, and LSS is one of the super-fighter-rebels who joins him on his justice quest. Trust China to give us a kick-butt heroine for the Iljimae story! (I liked the heroines of both Lee Junki's Iljimae and Jung Il Woo's Return of Iljimae, but it's awesome to see a heroine that can dice you into small bits without pausing to take a break).

Some pics )


Completely unrelated, but have a pic of Kim Hyun Joong filming Mischievous Kiss:

I am getting more and more excited for this!

I was predisposed to like this from the start - I like the story and I like the cast (yes, I am a Kim Hyun Joong fangirl and not ashamed of it, and Jung So Min is wonderful in Bad Guy and is also beautiful - she'll make a great female lead). It is also going to be a very pretty drama - the director is the one who did Goong and Return of Iljimae (pretty goes a long way with me - it won't fix an awful drama, but it will make me enjoy a mediocre one). I don't know much about the screenwriter but it's not Boys Over Flowers screenwriter, so that is already a plus.

But most of all, I like the stills. I like the vibe, I like the look, I like everything. And I found that, for me, stills are usually a great barometer. In most cases, if I don't like the stills, I won't like the drama (Tamra is the sole exception to the rule). While, if I like the stills, I am not guaranteed to love the drama, I am guaranteed to at least enjoy it.

So - hooray for MK!

Hallo there, Naoki!

According to allkpop (where I lifted this deeply intellectual picture from, as well), Kim Hyun Joong has been signed on to play the male lead in the Korean remake of It Started with a Kiss.

I am sure most of my flist is now groaning in horror. I bet as soon as this news will get posted on dramabeans, the thread will turn into a bashfest extreme.

But I don't care because my big reaction is YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! Ji Hoo sunbae finally gets the girl!

I think KHJ is gorgeous and despite widespread complaints about his acting in Boys Over Flowers, I thought he did just fine. By the end of that drama trainwreck, his was the only character (other then the secondary OTP) I did not want to murder - I certainly ended up loathing the leads.

So, mock me! I don't care for I am ecstatic!

This is about the only way they could have gotten me to watch that, knowing how much I love the tw-version, unless they signed up Kim Bum or Jung Il Woo (both of whom are, let's face it, too good for a fluffy romcom as done by incompetent Group 8).

ETA: Dramabeans has just posted the news and the lamentations have began. LOLOLOLOL. Seriously people, why would you want Lee Min Ho or Im Ju Hwan in this? Why? This drama will likely be silly fluffy crack at best, and I think either LMH or IJH should do something genuinely good. Especially LMH who, after BOF and PT, both horrible, is skating on some thin ice with me - it's getting to the point that even though I think he's very good, I am wary of anything he is in because I know it will be a disaster.

Man, dramabeans website started the hate engine for Athena really early. It's close to half a year before it premiers but the post and comments to that post on Kim Hyun Joong being offered (presumably a small but high-profile role a la TOP in IRIS) a role in Athena are something else. All the people going "OMG horrible I won't watch!" have fun with your imaginary high ground!

KHJ is a mediocre actor to say the least but honestly - staying away from a 20+ ep drama full of otherwise presumably appealing to you stars and interesting storyline (because all those posts are, I would have watched but for HJ...) because a guy you may not like has a small role? *rolls eyes*

Plus, I am pretty sure his role would be similar in scope to TOP's (you know, another boybander who never acted before. Only it's cool to like him, unlike with KHJ). I don't think TOP can act much at all (IMO KHJ is acting genius compared to him) but IRIS and his role was written in such a way that it wasn't an issue what with his being a rarely-shown mysterious emotionless assassin and all.

The way they are all calling for their fainting couch, you'd think KHJ was cast as Jung Woo Sung's love interest (now, there's an idea...)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Kim Hyun Joong (Ji Hoo from Boys Over Flowers, otherwise known as the only character I still loved by the end) is cast as a LEAD in a movie!

Said movie? A Korean remake of Kimi wa Petto, the jdrama about a career woman who is too strong and brainy and poised to be accepted into rigidly gender-defined and sexist society and a bizarre younger male dancer she finds in a cardboard box and takes in to be her 'pet.'

Heee.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Come to me, Rui Oppa!

Seriously - KHJ is such an oddball in real life, this role is tailormade for him.
