Awww, soompi seems solidly Seok Hyun-hatred zone and rooting for the other guy to end up with Yeol Mae zone. :( While I actually dropped INR2012 until I find out who she does end up with, and if it's not SH, I am not picking it back up. Sure, I wanted him to suffer a bit for being stand-offish about commitment, but I didn't want him to lose the girl!



Let's face it, in RL, if I were her friend, I'd tell her to go for Ji Hoon - he's loaded, calm, demonstrative, and has a pet plant. He doesn't seem to clean her clock in bed the way SH does or have the same long history with her, but the former can be worked on and the latter would happen if he stuck around. OTOH, Seok Hyun is emotionally fucked up and probably has the same genetic disease that killed his sister - not only can he die young, any kids he has can also get it. So I get where soompi fangirls are coming from, I do. I get that 'but he looooooves her! and cried! and is super-hot and has wonderful chemistry with her where JH does not and I love fucked-up heroes and I am obsessed with Lee Jin Wook who plays him and childhood loves who stayed together until recently are awesome' is not a legit answer. BUT!!!! Heart wants what heart wants and my heart wants those two together! Dramas are NOT real life and in dramas I always pick the most conflict-driven option. After all, in real life, if a medieval warlord dragged someone back in time with him, the reaction would be unmitigated horror and possibly a time-traveling posse with a shotgun or dozen. In dramaworld, that same scenario means my undying excitement and unmitigated glee (see Faith).

FWIW, I think Yeol Mae will end up with Ji Hoon. Good for her, but I don't want to watch...

I have caught up with the latest INR2012 eps (how I am managing to keep up with 5 airing dramas, I'll never know) and as always, quite a delight.



The thing is, the more this goes on, the more I don't see their viability as a couple despite their chemistry and feelings - she is a little clingy and temperamental but it's not really her fault I see this never working out.



He is where the problem is - it's very clear he loves her, but he is maddeningly non-verbal and non-communicative about either his feelings (bad enough) or his expectations (fatal to a relationship). Sure, he doesn't like her pushing - then maybe articulate what it is he would like, and how he sees whatever relationship they have? (Not to mention she won't be as clingy if she knew where she stood). Reading between the lines gets exhausting, especially since she's not privy to the things we see as the audience (such as him buying up all of her pictures). I mean, she tells and asks him point-blank and still gets no response. Who wants to bare your heart to no reaction? The way he is right now, I don't think he can have a functional relationship with any woman, really. I can't say I am enthused about heroine with secondary guy either because there is little chemistry and he's so bland.

This was the coolest break-up ever though:






Serves you right. If I were her, I'd do a sex tape with Guy N2 and mail it to him.

I swear, this drama has more makeouts than every other kdrama I've ever seen put together. But shallowness aside, I think it has interesting things to say about relationships - LJW and JYM are sexually compatible and are also very close friends, plus, she is falling for him again and reading between the lines, so is he, so you'd think they would be the perfect couple but that is not the case - she is impatient and very hot-tempered (pretty clearly, every breakup was initiated by her in a fit of temper), plus awful about reading emotional subtleties and he is emotionally shut-down and abysmal about either articulating his feelings or letting her in to see anything vulnerable. Unless they work it out, any attempt to become a true couple again is doomed. It's not that a person with either of their tendencies cannot be in a happy and successful relationship. It's that it would be hard for people with those tendencies to be in a happy and successful relationship with each other. They either need to change or affirmatively accept that this is the way the other person is and work with it, and they haven't so far.

See a lot of evidence )

Joking aside, I have finished ep 2, am in the middle of ep 3 and adore it - the characters feel modern and relatable and with sex drives and I love the former couple/current best friends/living together/going for friends-with-benefits-with-ridic-chemistry thing that the leads have going. I wonder if I am imagining things though in ep 3 - LJW looked quite disappointed, though he concealed it quickly, when she told him she wanted just no-strings sex, though he was all 'great idea.' Am I alone in thinking that? He did yank her sushi away :P

Secondary dude is incredibly boring to me but I think it may be the actor - I liked his character OK in Chuno and disliked his character in Personal Taste but in neither did I find the actor in the least memorable or characters interesting.

I confess that when news of INR2012 came out, I had zero interest. Its thematic predecessor, INR2011, pretty much took everything I dislike in dramas and stuck it in one package. Chances of my considering INR2012 would have been nil, however the flisties raved, except for the fact that the makers cast Lee Jin Wook and Jung Yu Mi as the leads. I am a ridiculous fangirl for LJW, who not only does something funny to my hormones, but who also was the lead in one of my all-time favorite dramas, the ridiculously underrated Someday (or as I like to call it, the closest Korea came to 'Mars'). And I've had a huge soft spot for Jung Yu Mi since Que Sera Sera. With that and the flistie raves, I decided to check it out despite my misgivings.



What can I say? I just finished the first episode and the love cannot be contained! It's funny, sexy (hello there, cable!) and fresh. The story involves two former lovers who ended their long-term, on-again-off-again relationship 3 years ago but have remained best friends. CAN YOU SAY MY CATNIP? My big problem with INR2011 was that it revolved around a couple whose spark has gone out and where the boyfriend was a serial cheater - ummm, I am not rooting for that. Here I like both LJW's and JYM's characters - both are quirky and have faults, but are also cool and with ridiculous chemistry - I am simply salivating for them to get their act together and get back together. tVN has done it again!

Caps of two make-out scenes. I know what's important! )

My only regret is that I got 450-with raws for this ep because while this isn't using a Red One camera or wallowing in a huge budget, it is pretty and I love it enough to want HD raws. Next time!

1. Is I Need Romance 2 worth checking out? I love Lee Jin Wook and Jung Yumi, but I already have a full slate plus the original INR was not anything that appealed to me, and I am generally very picky about my romcoms (A Gentleman's Dignity is the first one I loved in years).

2. So, I saw some spoilery caps for upcoming eps of Bridal Mask and there is a shot of Mok Dan in the torture chamber with Kang To and Shunji (who are not being tortured, obviously). Now, that is very little to go on, but I bet Shunji ordered her tortured for information on Gaksital. If that is so, I think this highlights a fundamental difference between Shunji and Kang To at their darkest. When KT had Mok Dan 'questioned,' she was nobody to him. If Shunji does the same, she is the woman he supposedly loves. While it is in no way excusable for Kang To to be brutal to strangers, it does highlight the gradations in his character back then - even though he may not care for random people, he does care fiercely for those he loves - he is horrified when he finds out who she is and after that it's clear that, despite all his talk, he would not be able to harm a hair on her head. But with Shunji, at the time this happens, she is about as close to most important person as you can get - she is supposedly his true love. And yet he is having her tortured. If he is capable of doing it to someone he loves, it is a whole other level of chilling. How ironic, after all of Kang To's talk about being able to kill the person he loves, yet being utterly incapable of it, and all of Shunji's horror at the possibility of even small mistreatment of a loved one, and then having her tortured. Of course, this is pure speculation. For all I know, Kimura ordered this and both guys are rescuing her. But what is life without speculating.

3. Anybody watching Beloved? Is it any good? I am very fond of Kim Min Joon.
