1. I am clearing some of my drama backlog, which means I am back to Me Too, Flower, a drama I enjoyed when I watched until I got sidetracked. Just finished ep 11 and I've remembered how on-key, lovely it is when it deals with its damaged yet hopeful protagonists and their dealings with the world and each other. I've rarely seen a drama couple that fits each other and needs each other so well because of their damage. (It's like a much lighter version of Bali). And yet, I pretty much am bored with everything else in this - the business storyline, Bong Sun's sister, the shrink, the annoying Hwa Young, who seems to have borrowed crazy secondary girl's playbook from circa 2002 (I love hating a good secondary like 'let me frame your husband for rape so you'll be forced to leave him in exchange for his freedom' dude in DGCH, but HY isn't even that fun to hate and I really wish someone less cool and less of a Mousie favorite than Han Go Eun played her).

2. Not watching Dream High 2 (though will likely do a selective watch once its over) but the soompi thread is ridiculously entertaining - combo of idol actors and the fact that even as of ep 13 the OTPs are not set in stone , the flamebait is strong.

Though it looks like JB and Hyesang will be the OTP - seeing that they start out as idol and his fangirl, that's pretty much THE fangirl fantasy there. I am enough of a shoujo fan (and a fan of silly poppy bubblegum) to turn in for that (or once I am sure which OTP is the endgame. I am not big on guessing wrong). This MV does a very good job of selling them:



Oh, and this confession is ridiculously cheesy and oddly cute and the acting makes me giggle. I am sold (turn on cc for subs).



Also, apparently the synospis for ep 14 includes the following: While giving chase to [Hyesung], JB was knocked down by a fast moving truck on the road because he was trying to save a little boy who was retrieving his ball. Bwahahahahahahaha! I must watch this gem. A Choi Ji Woo melo circa 2002 called and wants its plot back :P

So, What's Up is a musical, right?



And when you think 'musical,' you think chirpy and fun, right?

Think again.



I am about halfway into the first ep, and if "Dream High" was a musical if kdramas went Disney, What's Up is a musical if kdramas went 'indie 1970s director.'

I love it, but it's seriously dark.

You know, I really need to add a chirpy drama to my repertoir. Padam Padam and Tree with Deep Roots are both soul-scarring. What's Up and Me Too Flower are somewhat cheerier but that's like saying something is less bloody than WW2 - doesn't mean much. Neither is a bucket of laughs in the least. Ditto The Empress.

I think I am going to add Color of Woman to the mix before I go bonkers from all the emo.

In conclusion - will this prove to be the world's tiniest violin?

I don't even hate Hwa Young any more because she's too insane to hate. Hiring Dal to break up Jae Hee and Bong Sun is beyond evil. Does she really think JH would forgive her when he inevitably finds out? Also, that's just sick because not only would it deprive Bong Sun of romantic love, it would end up the sisterly relationship too. She's one sick puppy.

Anyway, why would I want to waste time on her when we have both angst and sweetness extraordinaire with our OTP?

From angst (oh my, YSY is even more gorgeous when he angsts).







To cuteness. Cuteness beyond words.





I love how straightforward and unwavering JH is (one thing I loathe is a hero who can't make up his mind as to whom he loves), but I actually understand Bong Sun's resistance - it's not that he lied about who he really is (though that does trigger her distrust), but that their current positions are so different - he is rich and with a lot of options and I think she doesn't have enough self-worth to think a millionaire might want her, even if she's willing to believe that a penniless parking attendant does.

HOW FUCKING FUCKING FUCKING DARE SHE?!





Here's a newsflash, lady (and I use the term 'lady' loosely) - he's not your property or your whipping boy or your toy. Oh, no, he might be finally finding happiness and his own life so what do you do? You expose him in front of his girlfriend but that also takes his whole life away from him. I don't mean in some dramatic "he needs her to live" (though, let's face it - he needs her so he could live with hope as opposed to merely exist), but I mean that his anonymity is taken away for good for everything - no more observing people as a parking attendant, or blending in, or anything. And you have the nerve to look smug?




Bitch. I could have been more forgiving if this stemmed out of thwarted, one-sided love or anything, but there is no love there - just irritation that your posession might be becoming his own person.



Also, it's just stupid. How on earth can she think he'll just happily go back to being her guilt slave?

I've never wanted the ceiling to cave in on anyone more.

MTF continues to be adorable and a great break when I am too brain-dead for Tree with Deep Roots.




Also this:





So, currently airing kdramas I am following in some fashion (first number is number of eps I've seen, second number is number of eps aired). In order of my obsession, from most to least.

My list and my dilemma )

Secondary Lady, when you have a scene that makes me flash back to Something Happened in Bali, you oughta cool it way down.

Really.

Honestly, the dude isn't going to want to stay as your codependent survivor's guilt buddy if you act like a rabid hyena.

Ep 7 stuff )
