Seeing that most of you have friended me because of Korean, Japanese, or Taiwanese dramas, I consider it only fair to warn you that for the next couple of weeks any discussion of the above will be pretty scarce as I plan to embark on an epic Hu Ge binge. Once I finish The Myth, I am going to go back and finish Legend of Condor Heroes. After that, I plan to watch Young Warriors of the Yang Clan, Little Fairy and even Chinese Paladin 3 (despite the fact that I did not care for CP1).

Seing that Mainland Chinese dramas seldom seem to be less than 40 eps, all total, I have close to 200 eps to get through (AAAAAAAAH HEAVEN). Even with my obsessiveness, this will probably take a while. So be warned.

Oh, and I bring you this very very pretty Chinese Paladin 3 MV:



Also, since am shameless - any idea where I can get Hu Ge icons?

And now I desperately want more Chinese period dramas to get subbed (it's hard to find any non-wuxia period Mainland dramas subbed for some reason). Even if they do not star Hu Ge, i still waaaaant!

I really really love this MV. The maker spliced scenes from both Fairy from Wonderland and Legend of Condor Heroes (both of which are period/wuxia/fantasy dramas starring Hu Ge and Ariel Lin) to sort of do a 'they love each other through time' narrative and it's bloody gorgeous.

dangermousie: (Handsome Siblings OTP by meganbmoore)


EEEE! Got my hands on the English-subbed version of Da Ren Wu (Big Shot or Hero, I have seen it translated both ways), last year's wuxia drama starring Nicholas Tse and Angelica Lee. It's based on a novel I've never read and the plot sounds so delicious:

Naïve, young Tian Si Si (Angelica), the apple of her father’s eye and the sole heir to her family’s riches, believes that she is in love with the great romantic hero, Qin Ge of the Meteor Clan. She dreams of traveling the martial arts world, actually meeting Qin Ge and having adventures just like many of the stories that she has read and heard. From childhood, she has been betrothed to the younger son of General Yang, Yang Fan (Nic), whom she despises.

Handsome, melancholy, talented Yang Fan has been on a mission for his father to secretly investigate the Meteor Clan whose upright reputation and strength has been rising in the martial arts world to rival that of Shaolin and Wudang. He comes back injured and somewhat changed, troubled with memory loss after an investigation. He marries Tian Si Si as his father ordered, but Tian Si Si has other plans for her life and runs away at the first opportunity. She quickly becomes entangled in plots and counter plots as she discovers the real world. Both Yang Fan and Qin Ge are ordered to go after her. All is not what it seems as the Meteor Clan and its members, rivals and government agents are at work behind the scenes.


Seriously, how many ways do I love the premise?

* Couple falling in love after marriage? Check. Though seeing your arranged match is Nicholas Tse it's not really a hardship
* Cooky heroine
* Angst and funniness
* Love triangle
* Nic Tse as the lead (if Handsome Siblings was all about him, it would be such a huge fave). I mean, he doesn't even need to act, he can just stand there and I'll ogle him.

Look at the cute MV for the OTP (with hints of a triangle):



I think I fell for it about the time he let her (she is possessed) stab him through the shoulder. I am so predictable!

I have also got Men and Legends (Dylan Kuo and Peter Ho, does it really need a plot?) and Fairy from Wonderland (finally. I want to see Hu Ge write on the walls in blood).

But all this shall not sate me!

I need Legend of Condor Heroes and I can't find any subs except for Vietnamese yet. I need! Please!!!

I mean, look. I want this now:



OK, will distract self with another favorite wuxia OTP (Flower/Orchid from Handsome Siblings. Angsty assassins and common-sense fighter girls ftw).

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore, I just bought first ten volumes of Basara.

I am feeling better, thanks everybody.

I finally caved and got Little Fairy which is a wuxia/fantasy/fairy-tale Chinese drama about a mortal man falling in love with a goddess who is temporarily banished from heaven. I was dubious as to whether to get it, despite finding Ariel Lin adorable as a button and having nothing against Hu Ge (the male lead, I had no opinion on him as I've never seen him in anything). I am not big on fantasy in dramas, incredible wuxia jumps being about the most I can usually tolerate. However, tricksy [livejournal.com profile] calixa lured me in by promising manpain. Lots of manpain, and torture/slavery/attempted suicide/screams of despair (I take it her family isn't keen on him).

Yay. Let's see how it goes.

Oh and a bunch of scans and vids.

Here are one of my favorite secondary OTPs of Fruits Basket, the hyper-dramatic, crazily oblivious Ayame (think a grown up Tamaki) and Mine, his shop assistant. They run an 'exotic clothes' stoer together. If they have any kids, I bet they will rebel by being stodgy accountants:



Little scene the above scan is from )

I need to find the scans with the semi-hugging.

Here are some Capital Scandal vids. Hats, angst, dancing!

Vids )

And after seeing Partner yesterday, which deserves its own post, as I laughed so hard I almost died, here are some Govinda vids.
