Koreans definitely know how to advertise a movie.

LOL.

I am imagining a poster like that in a local multiplex and just...can't.

At all.

SO SLASHY.

Also, because I posted pictures of Jang Dong Gun yesterday, I decided to research what he's been in. Not only was he Kunlun in The Promise (the dreads and slave angst didn't do much for his looks, clearly, I prefer him in modern attire), apparently he is the lead in an upcoming movie called The Laundry Warrior with Kate Bosworth as his leading lady and also Geoffrey Rush. Hmmm. Does this mean I'll get a chance to see it at the movie theater?

And talking of odd cultural cross-pollination:

1. There is a movie called Dance of the Dragon, which has a U.S. release date (of May 18) and is going to be, apparently, in English, which stars Jang Hyuk (!!!!). The plot of it sounds delicious, though not for reasons makers imagined. He is some sort of a martial artist who also has a passion for ballroom dance. *head explodes* LOL. I have great doubts of it being a good movie, but no doubts about it entertaining me. A lot.

2. There is I come with the rain, some sort of a private eye movie starring Josh Hartnett, which also stars both Lee Byung Hun AND Kimura Takuya. I am afraid for yours truly, it will be 'Josh who?' Of course, LBH is also playing a character in a GI Joe movie, but nothing will drag me to that one. Unless the explosions are REALLY good.

3. The new Wolverine movie will have Daniel Henney as one of the mutants. That explains a lot. I thought for a long time already, that nobody that good-looking could possibly be real. Mutation finally explains it.

Finally, I can shallowly ogle and objectify drama hotties of choice on big screen as well as on my TV and laptop!

First off, a few questions about some of the lesser known dramas out there. First off, Takki’s Antique. Yay or nay? Any good?

Second, I don’t think anyone on my flist except [livejournal.com profile] tatterpunk has seen the jdrama Brand, but it doesn’t hurt to ask. Happy ending or not?

Third, I got my DVDs of Say You Love Me kdrama in. I got it mainly because I have KRW fever, but also its ‘Dangerous Liasons’ type storyline appeals to me. Basically, Evil Woman (EW) is a successful but ruthless producer who doesn’t really feel. Her bf, Evil Guy (EG) is totally her lapdog. Into their lives enter our OTP, played by KRW and New Lady (NL). They are young and sweet and in love and they’ve known each other since childhood and they are horribly pure. So EW can’t bear the purity/goodness stuff, so she gets EG to try to take NL away from KRW and to seduce KRW herself. And she succeeds! At one point she apparently backs poor KRW into a corner and traps him and forces herself on him…heh. Poor guy. His first time too ;P Angst and angst and angst follows as his NL is clearly not happy and leaves him for good. But never fear, I peeked. Happy ending ;) Anyway, I am a sick girl, but I am too lazy to ff and I won’t get to the drama itself properly for a while. Any idea which ep the scene of KRW and EW happens? Please :P

I am really enjoying Love Story in Harvard. Interestingly, the development of the love story itself seems very realistic. They go on dates (some good some not) and talk and hang out and slowly get to know each other and fall for each other. Yay. And I loved the football scene SO MUCH. So playful and awesome and so perfect that Hyon-Woo finds out why Soo-In missed their earlier date (he was incredibly mad about it and told her so) and she did have a good reason, and he feels so sorry and he finally finds her and I love how he doesn’t apologize (because to do so would imply that he knows something she doesn’t want him to, even if he did learn it by accident, and also bring back bad memories for her) but is just sweet and adorable to her instead, teaching her how to throw a football, and she is puzzled but delighted and soon he actually makes her laugh. LOVE.

Btw, Kim Tae Hee, the female lead in this one, is Lee Wan’s sister in RL. How odd is that. I like her but the problem is I absolutely adore KRW in this one, so I am always puzzled that she doesn’t just swoon into his arms ;)

Also, unrelated I just found out that there will be a movie version of the Hwan Jini story coming out (with the same title). Hang Jini is apparently a legendary courtesan and so it will be a period movie. EEEE! Song Hye Kyo (female lead in Full House, I love her) is playing Jini. GUUUUUH. There is supposedly a bed scene with SHK (no idea who the partner is) *shocking :D* and it’s a period movie which is general awesomeness, so yeah. I am there ;)

First off, because I am shortly to embark on continuing my watch of the delightful, funny, off the wall twdrama Smiling Pasta, I bring you two cute SP MVs.

Smiling Pasta MVs here )

Oh, and while we are on subject of MVs, I found another cute of of My Sister in Law is 19:

MV here )

And on the topic of eye-candy, just because, some It Started with a Kiss pics.

I defy you not to die of the sweet.

Cuteness here )

I am continuing with Witch Yoo Hee and it's mad love. A couple of unspoilery screenshots (from soompi).

WYH )

Speaking of Jae Hee, I just found out he has an upcoming movie, Zigzag Love. It also stars Shin Yi, Park Si Yeon, and Myung Seung Hoon. It's a romcom and I bring you some awesome pics which all have one thing in common: they feature Jae Hee :P I don't really know what the movie is about and find myself strangely not caring.



More yummy pictures )

Oh, and in completely unrelated to anything, I am reading 'Messopotamia' about the formation and life of the city states and it's utterly fascinating as it's a topic I know little about. The thought of cities almost 7000 years ago is mindboggling.

P.S. Yoon Eun Hye has a new drama coming out later this year. About a coffee shop. Let's hope it's better than Vinyard Man though of course it's unlikely to beat Goong.

I've started watching 3-Iron with Mr. Mousie and we both like it a lot, so far.

Though, My, My. That's a lot of Jae Hee :P Not that it's a bad thing, mind ya.

And really random thought. I know everyone realized it but me a long time ago, but I finally figured: for me it's not the story but how it's being told. I thought of that after watching and squeeing over Tara Rum Pum trailer. If I saw a trailer for a HW movie like that, I'd think 'meh' and not have any interest at all. But here, because I love the way Bolly tells stories, I am all for it.

Has anyone on my flist seen the kmovie Addicted? (It's also known as 'The Poisoning). I noticed it when I was getting something else on DVDAsian, mainly because Lee Byung-Hun is hot enough to have caught my eye (I swear, on the cover below, he looks like a Korean version of a young Alain Delon). Plus, the cover is rather eye-grabbing:



Plus, the plot sounds whack in an awesome way:

Addicted is a story about the spiritual journey of two brothers - as well as a passionate tale of love and desire between a man and a woman. Dae-jin (Lee Byung-heon) falls into a deep coma at the same time as his brother Ho-jin (Lee Eol) dies. Both were victims of tragic car races held in different places. After waking up again, Dae-jin takes on the habits as well as the looks of his worshipped brother. Things start to get totally out of hand after he falls into an addictive relationship with Ho-jin's wife Eun-soo (Lee Mi-yeon). She firmly refuses to believe that Ho-jin's soul was transferred into Dae-jin's body, until an astonishing revelation causes her to question her faith...

So, any good?

First off, here is the MV that made me go and order Which Star Are You From from DVDAsian tonight.

OMG. Looks so good.

Spoilery MV here )

I am in the middle of ep 10 of Snow Queen and must pause for a minute or else I'll hyperventilate to death.

ep 10 spoilers )

In more cheery news, I am going to die of gleeee!

Pic of Ariel Lin and Joe Cheng from promo activities for It Started with a Kiss 2!!!!



They started filming and have filmed some kissing scenes (heee) and I cannot wait…

Has anyone read Plum Wine by Angela Davis-Gardner?

I’ve started it and it’s amazing, beautifully written. It’s set in Japan in mid 1960s and centers around Barbara, a young lecturer at a University who is left a trunk full of plum wine by her mother-mentor-figure, Michi who has died. In attempting to decipher the writing on the paper that is wrapped around each of the many many bottles, she comes in contact with Seiji, a pottery-maker who helps her translate the papers (which detail Michi’s life) and with whom she embarks on a tender but rather hopeless affair as theirs is a love that cannot be for plot reasons too good to spoil. The book is beautifully written, almost haunting, and deals with alienation and war trauma and connections and everything else. It’s wonderful.

In other news, anyone see My Little Bride? I think you have, [livejournal.com profile] fivil, right? Is it worth watching? Normally I’d jump on the badwagon as I love Asian romcoms and Kim Rae Won is a hottie and it seems to have good reviews, but the plot has me a bit taken aback. I certainly don’t mind a bit of an age difference (it’s not like he’s 40, he’s a college boy) but she is 15!!!! Yeah, I know, their parents force them into marriage despite their last ditch efforts to get out of the arranged situation but still. Eeeek. And he becomes her student-teacher (in school not in *ahem* other ways). So, is it cute enough I’ll overlook my slight ick factor? Or no?

The pics look cute though )

You know, random comment? Part of the reason I prefer kdramas is because the guys there are in my age bracket. I don’t feel like a cradle-robber, the way I sometimes do with jdramas :P
