My Proposal Daisakusen
dl is at 40% now. YAY!
But that is not what the post is about. It is about my poor impulse control. Oh no, oh no oh no.
I cannot possibly be starting another drama. My drama list is already psycho (way over ten, meganbmoore
:D) and that is only dramas that are completed.
My ‘currently airing’ dramas list is insane. The ones I am watching or planning to catch up shortly are: Witch Yoo Hee, Hello Miss, Thank You, Que Sera and The devil for kdramas (that is five, people. Five!). Summer x Summer, The Kid From Heaven, The Lucky Star and I plan to start Rock Paper Scissors and From Corner With Love (though with those two I’ll wait until they are completed so probably off my list). Plus KO1 which isn’t new but is progressively started subbing, so sort of is like new ;) And Yamapi’s Proposal Daisakusen starts today and Bambino in a couple of days. And I haven’t even gotten to KimuTaku’s ‘Great Tribe’ or finished Takki’s R&J. ARGGGGGHHHH. But it’s a happy argh.
I thinkfor my own sanity though, I am not starting any ‘completed’ new dramas until I finish some more off the list. Actually, I think I am going to finish them and then not start new completed ones for a bit as watching just the airing ones will keep me occupied ;)
But why the long wail up top? Because despite the hefty list above, I just added another airing jdrama to the list. Liar Game
Matsuda Shota and Toda Erica. It is all calledinvain
’s fault. I was mildly interested but she posted some pictures which hooked me and I read up on the plot and I am dling it right now.
Yes, yes, I know. Psycho schedule and all that. But come on. It’s Matsuda Shota and he is the lead. YES. And he plays a con artist who Toda Erika hires to get her $$$ back.
You know how I love the icy guy-sparky girl stuff? Or mobster and a good woman? Another thing I love beyond all measure? Stories about swindlers/con-artists/pretenders/
revenge-seekers who get caught by emotions themselves. I love Kurosagi
entirely too much, with Yamapi as the vengeful swindler who cannot keep the so awesome Tsurara out of his life as hard as he tries (seriously. SEQUEL. With kissing this time). A Love to Kill
is in the running as my fave kdrama, with Rain pretending in order to get close and avenge his brother on Shin Minah but falling for her instead. And I am currently loving Taiyou No Kisetsu
with Takki having all these revenge plans on his ‘friends’ but also falling for a handicapped unworldly pianist at the same time.
No idea if the trope is going to happen here but hey, the hope is good.
Besides, plot? Who cares:( More swoony stuff )( And the resident what kind of fashion is THAT shot )
Anyhoo, more detailed synopsis:Based on the manga series of the same name, Toda Erika plays an honest college student, Kanzaki Nao, who receives a hundred million dollars one day, along with a card saying she has been chosen to take part in the "Liar Game". The aim of the game is to trick the other players out of their hundred million dollars. At the end, the winner gets the hundred million and the loser is a hundred million dollars in debt. The next day, she receives notification that her opponent is her former teacher, Fujisawa Kazuo. She goes to him, seeking help, but ends up getting tricked into handing her money over. Desperate, she approaches the police for help, but they are unable to do anything. However, she is told of a mastermind swindler, Akiyama Shinichi (Matsuda Shota), who is to be released from jail the next day. Desperate, she goes to him for help.
Though wow. Some people on daddicts thread are ‘blah blah we hated Kurosagi.
Whaaaaa?’ It’s one of the dramas I am irrational about. Logically I understand there are people who might not like it. But emotionally or whatever it just doesn’t compute. I can’t process it because I loved it much too much ;)
Oooh, and I am super excited. I just found out that both Love in the City 2
(with Kang Ta) and Legend of Condor Heroes
(with Ariel Lin) will be subbed. EEEE! By BON Fansubs who are super good and efficient. (They are subbing WYH and will be shortly subbing Bambino
Btw, does anyone know whether kdrama Crazy for You
is any good?
Look at the cute pic:
The plot sounds good: Suh Jin Young is an aviation maintenance technician and her husband passed away due to a traffic accident. Kim Chae Joon dreams to become an aviation pilot but he encounters an unfortunate accident. Chae Joon goes to prison for accidently killing a man in a car accident. The man happens to be Jin Young's husband. Jin Young and Chae Joon develop a love relationship.
There are subs in progress.
