You guys have GOT to read [livejournal.com profile] fishcake's explanation to me of the family background of one of the two main male characters (Qi You, played by Yan Kuan) in Qing Shi Huang Fei. Mainly because I am still boggling and need people to share my bogglement.

Umm, I this think wins the title of most messed-up drama family ever, and that's saying something (if you are too lazy to click on link, hero manages a feat I have not seen before - have both his birth-mother and his bringing-up mother want him dead and his father be OK with it. Family unanimity yay?) Also, just to add more irresistible wrong on top, heroine is a dead ringer for his first-loved-then-hated stepmom? Who (the heroine) he wanted to seduce his brother but then fell for himself? Sooooo messed up - there is a team of shrinks salivating to get to these people! Where are my subs!!!

Overall, I guess my earlier advice to Qi You to kill himself now and be better off was even more prescient than I thought. Ah, cdramas!



On plus side, he looks very pretty angsting, which seems a necessary skill in his circumstances and will come in even handier as the story progresses - I've seen the trailers. Nothing good happens ever! To anyone!

P.S. Do not breed with anyone, Fu Ya! Qi You OR Lian Cheng! Insanity may be hereditary!

Of all the airing dramas I am following, Myung Wol the Spy remains my favorite (except for the amazing The Princess' Man, of course). I remain amazed that I am in love with a romcom, breaking a years-long curse.

Ep 11 and MW thoughts in general )

All this delicious angst and it is all BEFORE he finds out she is a North Korean spy! *sluuuuurp*

Preview for ep 12:



Two words: bed scene!!!!!!!!!!

I just loved it when he clung to her for dear life and begged her to stop him because he couldn't stop himself.

Oh, poor poor Kang Suk, so torn between his duty to his family (especially since he's just learned both the damage their pursuit of wealth has done and the excellent reason his parents have to be obsessed with money) and his love for Dan Ah - their 'game' ceased being one so long ago and he loves her and needs her and she's his sole hope for happiness and salvation.

Yeah, the whole 'my parents want me to take over the business of the family of the woman I love' is ripe for mondo misery. I am so curious to see what we happen!

I need the OTP to have a happy ending so badly because they are both so damaged and only half-alive prior to each other, but I cannot see how they are going to get there. Also, eeeek, Dan Ah would have to live in the house with his parents, and that sounds like a nightmare unless they get struck by lightning.

MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR )

No, I have no idea what is going on, except that he is weeping over Dan Ah. It's in ep 30 and I am only on ep 25 but peeked ahead to see my downloads are OK. How am I supposed to be patient to get to this now? It's funny, I started out loathing Kang Suk and I have an insane obsessive crush on him now.

I am so predictable. This is my favorite angsting-over-not-being-able-to-have-heroine-while-being-a-sexy-disaster (why yes, I love hyphens) scene since Jae Min stuffing his fists in his mouth in Bali. Or it could be since Joo Won in ep 17 of Secret Garden, but that was a different kind of manpain, more of "I am about to kill myself so you can live" variety. Ahhhh, kdramas are so good to me.

More of gorgeous angsty Kang Suk, from earlier eps )

Ooooooh

I find it interesting that his sis points out he's incapable of loving anyone outside the family. She's pretty correct even if this rule is breaking with Dan Ah (and he's terrified out of his wits that this is the case) and it makes me wonder why - he's clearly opeting in the world OK unlike the sister, but that sort of thing demonstrates a major dysfunction of his own, even if he can operate despite it. I wonder why, despite their money they are both very messed up. He did tell his parents to stop pushing his sis into normalcy and be satisfied by his being the ideal son, so is he compensating for her?

Also, I felt awful for Dan Ah, feeling guilty towards her dead husband for feeling one moment of happiness (honestly, I bet a lot of her refusing to let go even years after is guilt - he pretty much died to save her. It's not as if she knew him that well, it was arranged). Though her barriers are actually what makes him feel safe to come out. And because she believes it's all a game to him, she doesn't get spooked either, the way she would if she thought he was genuine.

Also, only in a kdrama would it be romantic for a dude to say "you remind me of my sister." LOLOL.

A few caps )

Man, both of them need so much therapy.

Also, peeked into my downloads and ep 24 promises me this.




Yup, he's all tormented by his hopeless lurve for lady who buried her heart in the grave.

"You have an illness too. Addiction to love needs an antidote. How about using me as an antidote?"





Oh Kang Suk.

Seriously, THERAPY!!!!!!

I am back to loving his character btw. Seriously, I am such a yo-yo when it comes to him. Maybe because he's such a freaking mess and acts out his dysfunction.

Dan Ah, when gorgeous guys beg you to use them, do itttttt! You don't want to die a virgin, right?

This drama is going to drive me bonkers.

*hides*

Perhaps this had something to do with it:





I can forgive a lot to a man who looks this hot angsting over heroine in the shower (who do kdrama men always angst in the shower? :P)

Joking (and shallowness) aside, I am pretty surprised to find myself liking him now - I spent the first ten eps hating his guts and eps 11-14 barely tolerating him. I think it's because we see him allow Dan Ah (and by extention us, the viewer) in more and more and so he is now much more human - someone who has plenty of flaws, yes, but also someone who really loves his family (the way he is with his sister kills me, and he is endlessly caring to his parents despite them being ridiculous excuses for human beings and his knowing that), who has a hidden sense of humor and insecurities, and who is finally losing control over his tightly-held emotions due to Dan Ah and is showing both vulnerability and sweetness for the first time.

Plus, he totally has issues!



Kang Suk, you may actually become a real boy soon!

Aaaand, good night! I watched 15 eps in two days. I haven't marathonned like this since Gloria.

You know, I really need a Dream High icon at this rate.

Anyway, behind the cut is my fave scene from ep 7 and it involves Hyemi and Jin Gook, though not really Hyemi/Jin Gook, if you get my meaning.



What do you do if a guy who's been awesome to you and whom you are beginning to develop a thing for is ditching you to join your archnemesis in order to work out daddy issues? Well, if you are Hyemi? You kick him.

You go, girl! I think I was especially pleased with that because I spent most of the ep wanting to do the same as I watched Jin Gook ride that emo train for all it was worth.

Scene behind the cut: mmmmmmmmmmmm I approve. Kick him again and harder! )

OK, suppose it's your wife's death anniversary. You:

a. Feel mildly sad but not too bad - it's been 15 years or so
b. Grieve and do memorial rites
c. Beat up and slap your kid, screaming how it's all his fault his Mom is dead and how you hate him and wish he died. P.S. The kid would have been 10 years old max when his Mom got hit by a speeding driver due to pushing her son out of the way of the car.

If you picked (a) or (b), congrats - you are a normal person. If you picked (c), you are hero's father in Endless Love.



WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE! And apparently it's an annual household tradition?!?! I don't plan to get killed by a car saving Baby Mousie, but I assure you if that happened, and my husband behaved 1/10 as badly as this guy, I'd freaking haunt his ass and make his life a misery until he stopped. WTF! Ugh. I want this father to die already. I am sure there are other speeding drivers in Taiwan, can't one of them run the old man over?

In case you want visual evidence, caps from the scene in question )

OK, Mousie, breathe.

And now some other caps from ep 3 which are not rage-inducing.



Shippy cuteness and other stuff )

This LJ is 80% kdramas all the time, but nothing ever beats a good twdrama for me. Nobody does OTPs the way twdramas do. And I am obsessed with the one in Endless Love, with its love story between a horribly poor guy with an awful life and a spoiled immature but kind rich girl. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.



Wilbur Pan and Sandrine Pinna's chemistry is insane and I am also developing crushes on both actors separately. I saw pics of Wlibur Pan and thought "oh my, he is not very attractive, is he?" But by now I am sort of obsessed about him - there is something about him - he's charismatic as hell and the way he looks at the heroine - with his heart laid bare for her to stomp on and as if he can't believe someone like her is even in his vicinity. Oh my. His character makes me cry, repeatedly. Which is insane as we are only on ep 2 and nobody has died or anything. But I basically want to cuddle him and make him soup and protect him forever. Sandrine Pinna is beautiful but she also has a very warm and charming vibe. Her character could be insufferable on paper but somehow when Sandrine is on screen I find myself liking her (even if occasionally I want to shake her). And together, so good!
