I am still working on replies to the replies to the friendslist love meme post (OK, that was convoluted :P)

How could anyone not like Why Why Love, the fluffy, delicious Taiwanese concoction? Seriously.

If you are yet not convinced, just check out this MV:



Seriously, I defy you to not die of the cute.

Also, what is with evil parents in dramaland? I sorta want to murder Mike He's character's father, only take out the 'sorta.' His two sons are in an accident (by being speed-racing demons, very mature :D) and he asks about his eldest's condition (the awesome Kingone) and when the girl who is telling him starts to tell him about the injuries of his youngest, his response? 'Him, I don't need to know.'

*stab*

But then generally I find myself mildly perplexed by dramaworld rules. :P I just gotten my hands on The Hospital, last year's Jerry Yan drama. Now, I know of Jerry Yan in three dramas: Meteor Garden (and the sequel), Love Scar (a short, three ep drama I haven't watched yet because I don't speak Chinese and there aren't subs) and now The Hospital.

In all three he plays a guy ditched by a girl, temporarily or not. OK, how does this work? He is 6'+ of pure gorgeousness. In realworld, he'd have to beat girls off with a stick, but in drama world he is apparently a girl-less wonder :D I know he looks good angsting, but come on :) The only reason he didn't get girl-angst in Meteor Rain was because it was pre-Shan Cai and he has 'property of Shan-Cai' tattooed on his forehead. Plus, they were busy giving him cute mute moppet angst.

In other news, Love Storm is being subbed.

I have just watched the first ep.

You have no idea how giddy it makes me.

It stars Vic Zhou, who is my favorite drama actor ever. I will basically watch a paint-peeling commercial if he is in it. Add Ken Chu (another F4 boy. *swoons for Xi Men* Though I guess they are called JVKV now. Ehhh, I prefer 'F4') and a fluffy romance with bits of angst and a happy ending? And kissing? I am set.

Don't misunderstand me, it's not a forgotten masterpiece. But it's a bit of silly, passing-the-time-pleasantly drama :)

Some vids )

And here are reasons to watch:

Reason 1: The LOLz. Seriously. Just look at this without your eyes bleeding. This is the heroine's bedroom :)



Most worthy reasons )

Oh, and because I don't like neglecting kdramas. I've decided Lee Jun Ki should star in every drama, because then subs come out super fast. There are subs for all of four eps of Time between Dog and Wolf already.

Check out what happens in ep 4:

I am going away for a week and am taking (in addition to Farscape) Nobuta Wo Produce, Boku Dake No Madonna, Nana (the anime) and Magicians of Love. At the very least. Since I am going to have internet DSL in my room, you can expect a lot of posts on those, for good or ill :D

In other news, no more Hana Yori Dango promos for me before going to bed. Last night I had the weirdest dream since I was a little kid (when I dreamt I was being interrogated by a giant grasshopper). I dreamt the JE (a Japanese media giant) was actually run by aliens who used all their boyband activities as a cover for the fact that they secretly ran dwarf mines under the earth’s surface. What are dwarf mines? No idea. Not only that, but apparently the boybands are part of their nefarious plan as JE has coded subliminal training and messages in the songs so at a certain time, at a given signal, those messages will activate and all the humans will become zombies working in the dwarf mines. Yeah. I think what’s the most bizarre thing about this is that I have never seen a single JE band performance, and I haven’t heard a single JE group song unless it played in the closing/opening credits of a drama (a la Arashi’s Wish in HYD).

In my HYD/MG fever, I have also been watching Dao Ming Si’s part of Meteor Rain. (I’ve seen the other two parts a while back but never got around to DMS’ story because it was so freaking long: 2 hours!)

I am about halfway in and am pleased to note I am enjoying myself.

More specifically, the following things amuse me (Should I cut? Is there anyone on my flist who plans to watch this who hasn’t? Oh well, this isn’t spoilery anyway):

1. I am amused at the fact that even in this little ‘outtakes from MG’ story, poor Dao Ming Si gets a whole heap of angst and hurt/comfort. Nowhere near Meteor Garden levels, but then this thing is only two hours long so there’s only so much they could stuff in there. There is just no luck for that boy, huh? Of course, they definitely know their target demographic as I am slurping it all up with a spoon.

2. Even after two days wounded/sweaty/feverish/unconscious, I am pleased to announce that his hair is as flippy and gorgeous as ever. That’s some awesome shampoo.

3. And that brings me to the hair. Or actually, hair continuity. I am most amused at the fact that even though this is set 2-3 years before the start of Meteor Garden, DMS’ hair is that nice layered cut from the later part of MG, and not the horrifying manga hair of the first few eps (which he supposedly couldn’t do anything about!). No explanation given, either. Considering this is a story which is fixated on how yummy Jerry Yan looks while acting wounded and angsty, and rocking the white shirt and jeans, I can’t say I blame TPTB as that manga hair made me want to poke my eyes out with a rusty fork.

4. Dao Ming Si interacting with the adorable mute girl moppet? Is LOVE. Especially when she makes him do stuff. Because he is like 12 feet tall and is on the run for supposedly killing/almost killing someone (and he did almost beat the guy to death) but here he is getting bossed by this six year old with pigtails. Heeeeee. It’s not necessarily logical or anything, but see point number 3. This isn’t about plot, is it? And once again, they know their target demo because I SQUEE. The girl’s father is crazy though. He tells DMS he doesn’t mind him (this total stranger they found wounded on the beach) to stay in his house because he has nothing worth stealing, but he is totally OK leaving his six year old mute daughter with this guy he knows nothing about? OTOH, I guess it’s not like DMS can run anywhere :D

Of course, this made me think of Shan Cai and DMS having kids of their own and it’s a pretty terrifying thought because they’d be the most insane parents. Heeeee. Their kid will either grow up to be a total battleaxe or just think his parents are insane.

5. Did I mention the hotness? Because YES.

And that made me go look for Jerry Yan pics.

So here they are.
