I thought I felt like watching a fluffy, angst-free, silly jdrama.

Being me, I ended up with Love 2000 and First Love instead. Hello, my darling future super-romantic angstfests! First eps of both were excellent.

Let's star with First Love - a 2002 romantic drama starring Watabe Atsuro and Fukada Kyoko. Fukada Kyoko plays Kasumi, a woman in her early 20s. Kasumi is pleased to find out her older sister has just gotten engaged, that is, until she meets the fiance. You see, Nao, the fiance in question, was Kasumi's first love. He was also her high school teacher and they were involved in an angsty illicit relationship together until he felt so guilty he broke it off and disappeared. Ooooooooh, can you feel the aaaangst?

After all, their past involved things like this:



More from the scene, it's an older jdrama so they seem not to have forgotten how to kiss yet )

And then there is Love 2000, the one I am even more excited about. L2000 (also known as Nisennen no Koi) is a 2000 drama starring Takeshi Kaneshiro (a.k.a. the hottest Japanese actor ever) and Nakayama Miho.

Takeshi is a secret agent/assassin from a fictional country sent on a deadly mission into Japan. He meets a systems analyst, played by Miho, and plans to seduce her in order to access the information he needs. And then...in dangermousie's favorite fiction trope of all time...he finds he has fallen in love for real. And who could blame him - have you seen how warm and gorgeous Miho is?

Lots of kissing (across a chain-link fence!), hurt/comfort and angst ensues. Oh, that is going to end so well! (Seeing that at the start of ep 1 he had to kill his brother at the brother's request to complete the mission, I see sparkly happy endings all around).

Just look at them! MMMMM.

I am a lying liar, I am.

I just made a post about not starting any new dramas because of backlog.

I lied.

I have just realized that I own Love 2000 with Takeshi Kaneshiro (my fave jdrama actor!) and Nakayama Miho.

He is an assassin who falls in love when he shouldn't...

With a girl he is supposed to be wooing only to get access to his goals.

OMG. It's Takeshi, as an angsty, madly-in-love assassin! How could I ever say no!!!

Plus, just look at this gorgeous MV: the kissing! the angst! The guns!



It's spoilery, but come on, how well did you think it was going to end?

Settled, this is the drama I am taking with me this weekend.

I am reading The Stranger Prince by Margaret Irwin. Rereading, actually. It is one of my favorite books and is a novel dealing with Prince Rupert, one of my biggest historical crushes.

It doesn't really deal with all of his life (it would have to be a heck of a thick book, though if anyone know of any books fiction and non that do so, do let me know), but is mainly focused on his role in the English Civil War. Mmmmmm. Rupert. The book is wonderful: chock-full of cool characters, complicating politics and fighting, angst, and even an OTP between Rupert and Mary Richmond (which is doomed, doomed, doomed). It's a totally brilliant book.

The only other fiction book dealing with Rupert that I've read was Midsummer Tempest by Poul Anderson, a fantasy novel which took place in an AU where Shakespeare's plays were actually real. It was a funny, clever, twisty book, with Rupert as the protagonist, creating plans of action with the fairies from Midsummer's Night, taking locomotives at the end of the battle, and falling in love with the Puritan daughter of his jailer (which is, actually, sort of taken from the real background for Rupert who was a prisoner of war in Germany before the English Civil War had his jailer's daughter go nuts for him). It's a really great book. Not as great as The Stranger Prince though.

Also, it turns out that my disc of Kamisama Mou Sukoshi Dake is defective. Ep 10 won't play! :( Since this is the one with the sex scene, I will just assume Takeshi's hotness melted the DVD portion. But now I need a new version. Pronto. Am deprived.

Will catch up on VM 3.2 and all of SPN tonight if I can.

I've also gotten my copy of Love 2000. The subs are excellent and I watched the ending in the process of checking out whether all discs work. Heeee. It was supposed to be dramatic but made me giggle. Spoilers for ending )

I am definitely a Kara/Anders shipper now. Does it mean they are doomed? Noooooo. Spoilers for 3.01/3.02 )

I have just found out that the ship name for my BSG ship of choice, Karl 'Helo' Agathon and Sharon 'Boomer' Valerii is Shagathon. I don't normally like smooshed ship names but this is the best ship name ever. EVER.

I need people to point me in the direction of Anders/Kara icons. I remember asking that before but can't locate the entry now. And are there other good BSG fic authors who write K/A aside from the amazing [livejournal.com profile] lyssie?

Also, KMSD made me realize I need more Takeshi Kaneshiro dorama angst. He has not been too kind and not acted in too many of them, but I did get my hands on an English subbed version of Love 2000 which has the following plot:

The story of an intelligent but lovelorn systems engineer (Nakayama) who fell for a handsome and charismatic stranger (Kaneshiro) whom she believes to be a high-ranking Foreign Affairs guy. In truth, he is actually a spy who is to execute someone who turns out to be his own biological father. A drama that looks at the wave of the future--computer specialists and international terrorists.

I mean, who could resist? You got doomed sneaky love. People who are supposed to off their own fathers. Can you say aaaangst? And if we are lucky, leather pants.

And that's it for TK and doramas, unless you want to watch a dorama about bowling which I don't. Even a fangirl's got to stop somewhere.
