Meeeeelting! Grinning! OMG, ILY drama!

So far, this is my second fave of the year, behind Shut Up.

Some of us are more close to our siblings than others:



For me, these eps are all about Jun and Hana's longing - thwarted, futile and acted out in other ways. I love that Jun still keeps chasing, still in love, blisteringly angry and lost (his comment about how fitting it is she will be his family because family only always brought him pain, killed me), still fighting for her. And Hana is so confused. She keeps pushing for them to be siblings but you know that is her conscience, not her heart speaking - when he does try to go on and date others, she looks as if someone stabbed her. The catharsis at the end of ep 16, when they find out their parents broke it off and they can be together, is just gorgeous, but you know it's going to be rocky - Hyejung found out and she's not about to roll over.

While blogs and flisties rave about King 2 Hearts (solid if slowly losing me), Queen In Hyun's Man (perfection) and Roooftop Prince (dropped it, so no idea), I continue to be dedicated to my underrated, delicate underdog darling - Love Rain. And the latest batch of episodes certainly ratcheted that love even higher. Oh, LR, why are you so good?

Thoughts and caps. Warning - 300+ caps )

The pain, the chemistry, the longing (the way he is denying her and clutching her like a drowning man at the same time), and of course, the incredible way it's shot...My favorite romantic scene this year.

My heart, this drama is cutting it to pieces )


I have a proper post about eps 11-14 of Love Rain (and eps 3-6 of Queen In Hyun's Man and the newest King 2 Hearts) to make, but I need hours to sort through literally thousands of caps and I couldn't wait until the weekend to post this...

It kills me, this misery between Hana and Joon precisely because they were so functional and uncomplicated together. How do they think they can go on acting as siblings for the rest of their lives escapes me. Sure, they won't live together (thank God for small mercies) but can you imagine any family function? In a way, even though it was Joon who broke up with Hana first and it took Hana an ep to find out why and make it a mutual thing, I think it is Hana who is the catalyst, the driver, the one who holds the key. Joon doesn't blame Hana for being the child of the woman the ghost of whom (unwittingly, but still...) wrecked his childhood and the presence of whom now will wreck his family functioning (as little as it is) for good. As he tells her in ep 13 "you are just you" (during that gorgeous scene where she asks him all these questions driven by his jerkish behavior when he broke up with her in 11 and he takes every word back and his eyes...) And with his abrasive personality and confrontational and ambivalent-at-best feelings towards both his (made of fail) parents, do you doubt him of being capable of going to his parents and telling them he's dating the daughter of Dad's lover/soon-to-be second wife and to take it or leave it? But there is Hana. Hana loves her mother, she wants her happy, she could never do that. And Joon knows that. That is why he broke up with her in 11 (though that didn't work for long, of course - ahhhh, when he runs to her at the end of 12!) And that is why he tells her he won't make her choose (especially after she goes on and on how she wanted a family when she was little, pleading for understanding) and let's mutually break up. If Hana ever goes to Joon and gives him the go-ahead, I doubt he'd hesitate for a second.

And you know, I really want her too. Sure, there can be a drama development where the parents find out on their own or something, but I want Hana to break under the pressure and affirmatively choose Joon. Yes, that means choosing what makes Joon happy over what makes her mother happy, but I just want him to come first to someone, for once. That conversation on the beach in 13, when he told her how his whole childhood he wanted to be first to someone, at least once* just killed me. I understand that Hana's feelings are complicated by the fact that she wants the same thing Joon wants so picking him might hit her "I am selfish" trigger but I hope she does.

* His parents are awful. The less said about Hye Jung the better, but much as I like In Ha the lover, In Ha the father is a horrible horrible failure. I don't care if neither you nor HJ planned or wanted a kid. You got one, now you have to take care of him (and no, marrying his Mom to give him a name doesn't end the obligation). That story that after the divorce, Joon's Mom kept Joon's Dad from visiting and Joon thought his Dad just didn't care - WTF! I am not even talking about HJ, who is a bona fide psycho, but are you telling me In Ha couldn't see his kid just because HJ said no? Especially in Korea where paternal rights, and not the maternal ones, are the default? Except for his feelings for Yoon Hee, In Ha is incredibly passive but that is not an excuse where a kid is concerned. RAAAAAGE.

Anyway, I should probably save it for a proper LR post...

Am watching episode 12 of Love Rain and I want to stab Joon for dumping Hana without any explanation (his snarled "I was just playing" doesn't count). Yeah, yeah, I know why he did it and I understand but my heart is NOT happy even if my brain follows.

Argh!!!! I hope Hana has a threesome with sunbae and the hot rocker and sends a tape of it to Joon!

Raaaaaaaaaaaaage!!!!!

I am disgustingly torn between wanting to give Joon a hug and punching him in the face.

ETA: ok, I take it all back. The teary hug was aaaaaaaaaaah... Drama, stop confusing me!

1. Respond to everyone...

2. Catch up on The King 2 Hearts eps 13-14, Love Rain 11-14 (bliss!!!) and Queen In Hyun's Man eps 5-6. I am putting aside The Equator Man to binge when it's done.

3. Clear up and post caps of eps 3-4 of QIHM - such a perfect, shippy, gorgeous drama. And Bung Do is such an amazing hero - smart, good, laid-back. Yoo Inna's heroine is wonderful and loveable too.

4. Read Cassandra Clare's latest in Mortal Instruments series, "City of Lost Souls." I eat up that series and the angsty angsty lurve between Clary and Jace with a big spoon. Though I think the premise of CoLS, in which Clary's used-to-think-he-was-her-brother-but-he-wasn't boyfriend gets possessed by her demonic-real-life-brother and there might be make-outs, reaches the levels of insanity not seen since CLAMP or Vampire Knight. Bring it on, people!

4. Start Sherrilyn Kenyon's "Born of Night," the first one in her League series. Love me some space opera, love me some romance, loved the other book in the series I read, and also met the protagonists of this one in the other book and thought they were awesome. The super-tall, super-strong invincible half-human former assassin and tiny dancer gal/daughter of a president that he rescues and who can wind him around her finger is a scenario made for me. Plus, I know Kenyon, h/c is going to be out of this world.

5. Finish Lauren Kate's "Fallen" quartet, at least the three books that are out. I am a sucker for paranormal romance YA (ummm, paranormal romance in general) and got 2/3 through this on my plane ride. Addiction! In Fallen, Luce, our teenage, sent-to-reform-school, seeing creepy visions heroine, finds out that she is one half of a super-doomed, super-punished couple - she keeps reincarnating over and over and over through the centuries only to die at the moment she and her equally punished OTP get together (he is a powerful sort-of-fallen angel and his punishment is to stay alive and remember everything only for it to happen over and over again no matter what he does). They are in their own cdrama! Only this time, she's not been baptized or brought up in any religion, so if she dies, that is the end, no reincarnation or anything. And a lot of supernatural bad guys are interested in that. On plus side, she also didn't die when they got together. Now, if she can only keep staying alive! Anyway, I love it to bits and ship the OTP. The whole thing would make a fun CW show but I am glad it's been left alone because you just know the makers would stick her with bad-boy Cam and not her OTP (see Vampire Diaries, adaptation of...).

6. Sleep. I am so jetlagged.

This episode was so cute that it must have spontaneously produced puppies somewhere in the Universe, I swear! Just as well, because I think the angst!hammer might just fall next week.
