Ugh!!!! I started Phoenix, am about half an ep in, and I think I may have to give up because I really hate the heroine.

Not even hate. Loathe with every fiber of my being. Literally, every time she is on screen my bp rises and I want to strangle her. Ugh. She is so spoiled, idiotic, selfish, useless, mean, nasty, just...DIEEEEEE.

Anyway, I think this drama is not for me, but I will at least try to last the entire ep.

ETA: Nope, could not last an ep. Heroine told Hero she will prove he is into her (he did not want to date her) by going off to the rail of a ship and threatening to jump off after telling him she can't swim If hestops her, means he likes her. WTF???? Why are you so bugfuck insane? If he stops you, it just means he isn't a sociopath and doesn't want to see random people die in front of him. Ugh, worst drama I've seen in a LONG time. Also, before this, I didn't know it was possible for costars to have negative chemistry but there it is...

Decided to try Lovers in Paris and heroine of that one is dippy and useless and completely incompetent. I think this is supposed to be 'quirky' and 'cute' but she comes as developmentally retarded and without any living-related skills. I only lasted an ep with that too.

I feel like I lost 15 IQ points just watching half an ep each of these two dramas. Ugh.

The scene from Lovers in Paris that Boys Over Flowers stole for its infamous "let me jump in the pool" climax. Here it is:



Haven't seen LiP so no idea of the context (though the day Gu Hye Sun as as good an actress as Kim Jung Eun, I'll eat my non-existent hat).

Enjoy the similarities. And the lengths to which the heroine will go to keep her job.

Ahhhh, drama self-cannibalizing.

Mr. Mousie just called me to inform me that when he took his eyes off her for two seconds Baby Mousie somehow obtained one of my sandals (which was in the room but not in the vicinity of her play mat) and was diligently licking the sole (!!!!!). Good God, I have no idea where that shoe has been - now I see why parents have kiddie leashes :)

In drama news, I was o_O to discover that Brilliant Legacy topped 40% ratings this last week. That's insane! I am sure that has been no drama for 3-4 years that got anywhere close to this. Luckily, even though I am behind, I really do like what I have seen of this drama so far - at least here, unlike with BOF, I have no resentment over good ratings.

Also, I think I might be dumping Lawyers of Korea - I am always more of an angsty-drama girl anyway, and the male lead annoys me immensely. Basically, if 18 vs 29, City Hall, or Lovers in Paris pans out as a fun not-too-emo drama, LoK is toast (I already have my angstfill with Fashion 70s so don't need another angsty one to add to the mix but would like to add a fun one). I might also get back to 9 end 2 outs instead - I liked what I saw of it some time back.

Also, I am dying to check out Friend.

A love quadrangle with Hyun Bin, Kim Min Joon, and Seo Do Young falling for the same girl? Lucky her! Not to mention every mob story needs a gangster's moll.




Just check out the sorta-Engrish synopsis: "At a time when students had to fasten their collars and crease their slacks till they're razor sharp, these four friends strutted around in their own custom-fashioned uniforms. They walked the streets with their heads held high, shoulders straight, and chests out, fearing nothing when they were together. Joon-suk, a son of a vigilant gang boss; Dong-su, the only son of an undertaker; Sang-taek, a diligent student; Joong-ho, who never keeps his mouth shut. Those are the gang of friends who share their fantasies about naked women and their awe at Bruce Lee's Kungfu. Each of their lives takes different turns as they grow up and their paths cross in conflict with each other's. Joon-suk becomes the leading henchman of his father's crime ring and Dong-su is serving for Joon-suk's rival gangs. Sang-taek and Joong-ho find themselves helplessly watching their two best friends wield knives at each other..."

Friends and future rival gangsters:



This reminds me of Snow Queen:

I have just learned the ending of Lovers in Paris.

Bwahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! I wonder if there was rioting in the streets?

Spoiler for the ending )

That's one drama I am skipping.
