[livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore, you created a monster!

Next on my drama hit list after the backlog (which I guess means 2010 :P) is…

Ta-dum!

Wuxia Chinese drama Return of the Condor Heroes (2006 version). Not too sure about the plot except for the usual fighting, colorful constumes and love stuff. And the OTP that seems to hit every single thing I want. My GOD. I am already shipping them like a lunatic, on basis of the MVs. Yikes.

My favorite MV but I can't embed it. Seriously, just watch it. I don't even know the story but the combo of visuals and song got me sniffling. Could be the lack of sleep too, but what the hell:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mC-F5hkNsXQ

Why the sudden interest? I have about dozen more reasons.

Reason 1



Other reasons behind cut )

I think I know why stuff like this appeals to me so. It has all the angsty romance my girly heart can want, but also fights and revenge and what not for the tomboy part of me. Plus, if you think about it, the period dramas have men who are gorgeous (have you SEEN the lead of this?) and very masculine (heck, these dramas are all about how proficient these guys are with weaponry) but who also have long hair and elegant clothes. And the heroines are totally kick-butt but have elaborate hairstyles and look feminine. Best of both worlds. And it's filmed movie quality beautiful. All that plus vague spoiler ). What more could a girl want?

Still not convinced?

A few MVs.

In case you wondered about my recent interest in Chinese period drama Handsome Siblings (this will be the first mainland Chinese drama I watch), I present the below music vid (yup, [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore already posted it on her LJ).

Very briefly summarized, HS (also known as Proud Twins and Xiao Yu Er Yu Hua Wu Que) is the story of two brothers separated at birth who both grow up to be fearsome fighters and coincidentally meet when grown up. Little Fish (Dicky Cheung) is laid back and mouthy. Flawless Flower (Nicholas Tse. Preach it, sisters, with that name! Heh :)) is as serious and reserved as Little Fish is not.

I confess to mainly being interested because of Nicholas Tse's storyline. His character falls in love with the girl he meets in a battle tournament, and there is angsty, forbidden, OTP-squeeful love.

Shall I enumerate the reasons?

1. Nicholas Tse
2. Nicholas Tse with long hair and sword
3. Nicholas Tse angsting with long hair and sword
4. Nicholas Tse angsting over his OTP with long hair and sword
5. Nicholas Tse having an angsty star-crossed OTP (he meets her in combat tournament, YES). With a cool girl and hugging and kissing and crying.
6. Did I mention that when not with a sword, he fights with steel tipped fans. And still defeats people. Now that is pretty freaking awesome.
7. Nicholas Tse was the only guy brought up by women fighters group who punish men who in their estimation wrong women. Except for him, they kept every guy around in cages. And from what I can see, they eventually put Nicholas Tse in a cage. Sounds like a yummy idea. For falling in love. Thank you, writers!
8. Both the heroines (the heroes' OTPs) are cool and not wimpy.
9. The other brother also appears OK though I admit to a markedly smaller degree of interest in him. But he fights people which always earns points.
10. Did I mention Nicholas Tse? In white.

Anyway, vid:
