1. I am so excited for the upcoming 'special' (i.e. short) drama My Love, Ugly Duckling because it stars Kang Ji Hwan and Li Ji Ah, two of my favorites (Hong Gil Dong and Sujini - ahhhh).



Here is a youtube teaser - I still have no idea what it is about but who cares.



2. To the list of upcoming 2009 dramas I am excited about (Take Care of the Lady, Chuno, IRIS, Heading to the Ground) we add a fifth - Suspicious Heroes, about a guy who loses everything and then becomes some sort of a hero. Blah blah blah, who cares, it stars Lee Jun Ki and Han Ji Min. OMGOMGOMG. To air in November.

3. All those who are not watching Swallow the Sun, why not? As my list of favorite OTPs seemed to indicate, my preferred ship type is of the 'he worships the ground she walks on' variety and StS has it in such delicious abundance.



Here is a scene from ep 11 as summarized by Luv from soompi: JW was telling SH about his past...how he was abandoned right after he was born. He told her about the his memory of her bright eyes...he wanted to destroy the farm so she would like him. (She's rich and he's poor...if he destroys the farm then they'll be equal). But he knows...she's someone he can't have and he shed tears. He told himself that next time when they meet...he'll have confidence in himself.(This part is when they're still kids). But when they met again...he already sold his soul. He's shameful and can only look at her from far away. Falling in love with her would be a sin so he'll keep the pain to himself. SH said she had never seen eyes that were so sad. She said they should comfort each other and cure each other.



Mmm. And then he leaves her, leaving her a note that he will come back for sure and be worthy. Oh YES.

See caps from such a delicious scene )

4. I have now watched the first episode of Worlds Within and I adore it ridiculously - is so lowkey but very effective.

Oh my poor darling Sujini!

You go from Yon-sama, who was playing some sort of a Korean sexy warrior Jesus to boot,

to this:



Poor poor girl!

It's amazing how ungoodlooking Ryu Shi Won continues to be. Not that the leprechaun outfit helps any.

Kdramas are out to get me!

Now they have cast one of my all-time favorite actresses, L Ji Ah, who played the incredibly kick-ass amazing Sujini in my favorite drama of all time, Legend a.k.a. "the drama dangermousie never shuts up about" opposite the only kdrama leading man whose appeal I do not get AT ALL. Ever. Seriously - I have seen dozens and dozens of dramas with as many leading men and of all of them, he is the only one who irritates the hell out of me.

The he in question? Ryu Shi Won, big Hallyu star. If you read my LJ for any length of time, you might know him as "Ugly Brother" (my name for him, not the drama's) from Beautiful Days, the one who apparently was supposed to get the heroine in that drama until the makers saw sense (and fan reaction) and she ended up with the incredible Lee Byung Hun.

Now, my hate for Ugly Brother is legendary. But that's fine. It's not an actor's fault if he plays a character I loathe. I can get over that. I saw Uhm Tae-Woong, one of my all-time faves, as a horrible person in DGCH - I wanted to murder him. Now I love him. I am madly crushing on the protagonist of Slingshot even though I wanted to stab him in Winter Sonata etc etc etc.

I was utterly unimpressed with RSY's acting but that's OK. People can improve. But there simply cannot be any help for the fact that I find RSY incredibly unappealing-looking, to put it mildly. He'd have to be an acting genius to overcome that and I haven't heard anything about that happening.



Hallo thar', Ugly!

To sum up. One of my favorite actresses opposite a guy I find a bad actor, ugly, and whose previous role made me hate the sight of him even though we were supposed to like him. Nope. Not happening.

His previous drama was opposite Jang Nara which I could get behind: I am utterly indifferent to her. But this! Yikes!

For what it's worth, I think he is a good singer. I just wish he'd stick to singing...

In other news, still haven't had a chance to continue with Spring Waltz. Need ep 8 like AIR.

But this MV makes it better:
