This trailer for When It's At Night makes me giddy. Giddy.

In other news, this shippy MV for Gong-Chan and Yu-Rin from My Girl (one of the funniest, most heartbreaking, perfect dramas ever) makes me swoon like mad:



(and not just because GC is one of the rare drama guys who I think would be awesome to date in RL: pretty well-adjusted, a little reserved, and very kind). I need a rewatch.

Sweet 18...

I've had a really long hard week so far, so I think when I get home, I just might pop in Sweet 18 and relax a bit, with some blueberries and scones. I am up to ep 6, after all.

Sweet 18 is one of the most adorable, fluffiest dramas out there. It stars former RL couple Lee Dong Gun and Han Ji Hye. The plot is quite wackily adorable. Their grandparents were BFFs, so when HJH was born (LDG was 9 or so at the time), the grandpas pledged that their kids will marry when they grow up. Unfortunately, HJH's family had to run to hide from creditors, and the families lost touch over the years.

Time passed, and Lee Dong Gun grew up into a serious, rather dutiful District Attorney. And Han Ji Hye grew up into a juvenile delinquent (she leads her own girl gang :P), but bubbly and cheerful high-school senior.

And then their paths cross again, and of course, LDG's grandpa decides to lose no time and get the two married. Lee Dong Gun is, understandably, horrifed by the idea. Not only is HJH a mere child to him, and one he doesn't know, he is also recovering from an ex from hell, which sort of played tick-tack-toe with his heart. But Han Ji Hye's pushy, willful heroine has decided that she is in love with LDG (who could blame her!) and what HJH wants, HJH is going to have, come hell and high water.

Could these two very different people learn to coexist, let alone truly love each other?

Watch the fluffiest, cutest kdrama ever to find out.

Just check out this adorable MV (even if it has Engrish subs for some weird reason).

This is a Smile Again pusher post.




What is SA? It’s a 16-ep kdrama, which came out in 2006, starring Lee Dong Gun, Kim Hee Sun, Lee Jin Wook, and Yoon Se Ah.

The story has shades of Talented Mr. Ripley about it, but the story is actually very uplifting and happy-ending despite some very underlying dark themes.

Playing somewhat against type, Lee Dong Gun is Ban Ha Jin, an orphan from a truly horrible background. He meets Dan Hui, a tough, tomboyish baseball player, when a rich kid gets Ha Jin to date Dan Hui as a prank because Ha Jin is desperate to get money for college. Only…he ends up falling in love for real. The relationship is interrupted when Ha Jin has to go on the run with Yoo Kang, a troubled abused girl he befriended, in order to protect her. Now, it’s quite a few years later, and Ha Jin, hardened by his life, and Dan Hui, out of college, still warm and spunky (and still mad at Ha Jin) meet again. And then there is Jae Myung, a former baseball star and Dan Hui’s hero, who has been crippled by an injury. Dan Hui sees him as someone to save and Ha Jin sees him as a meal ticket…

I love the drama’s understatedness about key things: for example, it’s pretty clear that Ha Jin’s childhood was beyond horrible and the life on the run with Yoo Kang also caused him to do some despicable things that scarred him, but the drama never really dwells on it much, instead mentioning things in bits and pieces (like a completely matter-of-fact fleeting comment by Ha Jin that he was kicked out of foster homes twice and ended up in the orphanage, or the little story he tells Dan Hui about being thought a thief). Just like it’s clear Yoo Kang was horribly abused by her father, and that is why she clings to Ha Jin so, as he is the first who ever showed her real kindness, but the drama doesn’t dwell on that as well. It’s prehaps in keeping with this that the characters’ way of dealing with some significant traumatic things, and their knowledge (or lack thereof) of certain things is also addressed or not, in a very naturalistic manner. Spoilery lengthy musings )

Also, I love all the kissing, and the cuteness, and how Ha Jin slowly changes, and the cool supporting characters, and feminism of the story.

It’s an awesome drama. Go watch!

A bunch of MVs )

I am off to Thailand at the end of the week. Got my shots and everything. :P Also, since the flight is over 17 hours each way, I am bringing dramas to entertain me (with enough batteries to last me most of the flight :P). It's probably going to be Thank You and Save the Last Dance, but not decided yet.

But for certain, it will also be Smile Again. I just started it (because yes, I am enjoying my Goong rewatch, but I need 'new' dramas to watch) and SO AWESOME.



Granted, I am barely fifteen minutes in, but (in conjunction with reading the synopsis), I can tell it will pinge so many of my fiction kinks:

1. Strong, tomboyish, well-adjusted heroine. When we first meet her, she is on her high-school baseball team (and she is the only girl!) and when an opposing player tries to do sexist harrassing, she starts a fight. YES.

2. Hero who totally likes the Heroine but she is oblivious and is crushing on Secondary Lead.

3. Hero who is high-school president and all around smart kid who had to drop out of high school and not go to college to protect female friend (for whom, it must be said, he has only protective brotherly feelings, YAY). And now he is trying to deal with the wreck his life has become.

I love the beginning, with the Heroine taking no guff from anyone, and Hero actually rushing to help her and being all jealous she pays no attention to him but is all about cute Secondary Guy and her utter cluelessness about his liking her :P

Oh, and did I mention Lee Dong Gun? I love him to bits.

Do you know, once upon a time, I didn't understand the fuss over Lee Dong Gun. I saw him as the admittedly nice other guy in Sang-Do and he registered zip on my Rain-fixated radar (Rain played the lead). I didn't think he was particularly hot or charismatic or anything (though not ugly or dull either). Just the usual 'other guy.' But then I saw pictures of If in love...like them and went 'guuuuuuuuh' and then I got my hands on the movie My Boyfriend is Type B and was GONE. (I should have disliked his protagonist, who is a cheerful jerk, but instead I adored him because of the sheer charisma and peeks of vulnerability. The movie's total fluff worked because of the cast). And then followed Sweet 18 where I saw three eps and fell for the drama and his proper but very sweet DA very hard (and now am waiting until my better subbed copy gets there).

I think it's a combination of things. One is that he (like Matsuda Shota and Oguri Shun who gained in hotness between Hanadan1 and 2) grew into his looks as he got older, as Sang-Do is an old drama (and also lost a little weight, and yeah, I am shallow, but I love the cheekbones). And two? I don't know whether he suddenly acquired charm to burn or whether he had it before and I was too blinded by Rain but yeah...psycho charisma.

What is the point of the above ramble?

I present you a huge picspam of Korean drama Stained Glass, on my very short list of dramas to watch (true love, childhood friendship, identity loss, all the other good stuff). I say 'picspam' but what I mean is that the photographer clearly considered it his duty, instead, to see how many ways you could shoot Lee Dong Gun looking awesome in business and casual wear. The answer? A heck of a lot.

There are over 80 pics behind the cut, so be warned. It's worth it, though.

Because my Stained Glass DVDs were a bit messed up and because I wanted:

a. something really fluffy and light and
b. a Lee Dong Gun fix

as much as I love wuxia, marathonning just that gets psychically exhausting (all the angst and fighting :D)

I pulled out my DVDs of the fluffy, light kdrama Sweet 18 starring the scarily adorable on/off screen pair of Lee Dong Gun and Han Ji Hye.

Half an ep in, it's exactly the fluff I need to counterbalance ROCH.

S18 is a rather unusual story. Synopsis from wiki:

the story begins when Kwon Hyuk-joon's grandfather, the head of the traditional Kwon family agrees to an arranged marriage between his grandson (Lee Dong Gun) and Yoon Jung-sook (Han Ji Hye) when Yoon Jung-sook is born. 18 years later, the two families lose contact because soon after the contract is signed, Jung-sook's family encounters financial issues and is forced to run away.

Meanwhile, Jung-sook has grown up to be a rebellious and strong-willed girl who just wants to live her life as she sees fit. With little aspirations, she is the direct foil of her achievement-bound counterpart, Hyuk-joon. When the two meet each other, they clash horribly; Jung-sook thinks her fiancee is nothing but boring, and Hyuk-joon believes Jung-sook to be nothing but an immature child. The rest of the series follows their life living together as a couple, and the obstacles they are faced with. When Hyuk-joon's first love reappears and wants to claim Hyuk-joon for herself (despite the fact that he's married), who will Hyuk-joon choose? His first love Ga-young, or immature spunky Jung-sook?

Isn't it incredibly adorable?
