So, I am on episode 3 of Mystery In The Palace, the period mystery/intrigue/romance cdrama and I am addicted!!! I wasn't that enthused by the first two eps which were backstory, but now I am in the story proper and eeeee!

I mean, how could I not love it if the OTP are potentially siblings and going to think they are for a chunk of the drama (I am spoiled so I know they are not) and their first meeting involves her bossing him around, not knowing he is a prince (she is a seamstress) and hugs and adorableness x 11. Plus, the male half of the OTP is Kevin Cheng, one of only two men I have seen who looks gorgeous in Qing get-up and hair (and I can view this as a consolation for BBJX as he gets to live and get the girl).

Plus, I realized I love the Qing aesthetic - the indoor furnishings, the gardens, the clothes, women's hairstyles.

So yes, super-addictive.

I promise to reply to comments tomorrow. Am ridiculously exhausted and swamped (and trying to stay unspoiled for SUFBB 9-10. SPOIL ME AND DIE).

OK, on with the show...

1. Did you ever find yourself thinking "I wish there was another kdrama with the exact plot of You're Beautiful minus the awesomeness of Jang Geun Seok?" If so, your dreams are about to be realized. Channel A is getting ready to premiere The Ultimate Audition, a drama starring Park Yoohwan (Yoochun's baby brother) and a bunch of newbie idols, all about a girl cross-dressing to join an idol group and getting involved with the group leader, who's perfect in front of the fans but is actually a jerk in private. Sound familiar? If I were Hong Sisters, I'd be getting my lawyers up.



Your eyes bleeding yet?

Snark (and the fact that even writing the above paragraph reduced my IQ by a dozen points) aside, I am all set for the first ep to air, and I will be all over this baby. Sometimes I enjoy silly cotton candy and this makes me think of my fun twdramas of old. Now, let's hope there will be subs - viki doesn't have rights to cable stuff, this is likely to be too low-profile for dramafever and withs2, so my hope is in DS...

2. So excited for King 2 Hearts which makes me think more and more of some of my favorite shoujo. And darn if Lee Seung Gi doesn't look handsome in that uniform and with that hairstyle:



I normally fall for his characters like mad, but this is the first time I've found him gorgeous off the bat.

More pics. I want this out already! )

Also, Ha Ji Won is ridiculously gorgeous and I can't tell the age difference at all (I mean, I have no idea if it's supposed to be an older woman/younger man romance, but I am willing to buy they are the same age!)

3. Speaking of royals getting involved with kickass ladies, the posters for Rooftop Prince are out and they are all adorable (you can find them all on soompi and dramabeans) but this is my favorite:



This is going to be kooky adorable!

4. I have watched the first ep of the Qing palace mystery Mystery in the Palace, starring Gai Ting Ting and Kevin Cheng (a.k.a. the only man except for FSF to actually look gorgeous in Qing braid). It's gorgeous (the costumes! the sets!), the story is interesting, and the OTP (who may or may not be half-siblings) will be just my thing, if MVs and previews are anything to go by:



5. Apparently the OTPs of Dream High 2 are still as clear as mud 10 (out of 16) episodes in. There are ship wars. By this point, I think TPTB are just screwing with fangirls.

Why do I not have any Bu Bu Jing Xin icons? (Ah, cdramas. Overall, much as I enjoy Korean period dramas, nothing does it for me like period cdramas - they fit me ideally in terms of structure, pacing, approach.)

Checking out Huan Zhu Ge Ge, which is harmless dumb fun, made me crave a quality Qing story and, because I have no sense of self-preservation, I am currently selectively Ruoxi/Four-exclusively rewatching BBJX. Next, I shall progress to hitting myself over the head with a hammer for entertainment.

God, this is such a gorgeous, nuanced drama which manages to be both restrained and passionate, romantic and soul-destroying. GUUUUUUUH. It is also the one drama where I keep the raws just for capping.

And guess what, my obsession is your gain, because I bring you caps from this amazing scene in ep 17. (I took close to 500 caps, before I went culling. The less said...)



More more more MOAR!!!! )

It's funny because before the drama aired, I remember blabbering all over that BBJX story sounded boring, the trailers didn't work for me, Nicky Wu was much too old for Liu Shi Shi and looked like a gargoyle in Qing get-up. And then...ahahahaha. So much crow. I loved the story and thought LSS and NW had ridiculous chemistry with a few spare Universes to burn. And, while I still think Qing look is not for Nicky (unlike Kevin Cheng, who proved he's god among men, by performing a miracle and looking drop-dead-gorgeous even with the queue), it simply didn't matter - the sheer force of Four's personality and Nicky's charisma in the role, made my quibbles immaterial.

Speaking of the doomed pair, any rumors of them being paired again? Mainland seems to like to pair successful couples again, and if they do so here, I can pretend this is a happy AU which didn't end up murdering my soul. If that is too much to beg for, I'll settle for LSS with Kevin Cheng, if you are listening, TPTB! (Btw, when is Kevin's Mystery in the Palace coming out? I want!!! Except for Feng Shao Feng, he's the only man I've seen who's managed to remain gorgeous even with the half-bald/queue look).

First off, seeing how cdrama-obsessed I am lately, I probably should make a 'most anticipated' list. But for now, let's do something else.

1. Firstly, my love BBJX. I found this 'shall Ruoxi pick Four or Eight' vid. It features clips from eps I haven't seen yet and all I can say is OMFG I am going to die when Four/Ruoxi finally becomes canon because even in the clips their chemistry is insane. I feel like I am intruding. Seriously insane.



Completely random thought - I keep wondering what will turn Four from a smart bystander into a dedicated contender - he seems to have very few people he cares for but those he cares for he will go to the wall for. I bet if he found out Eight was Ruoxi's boyfriend or if someone messed with Thirteen (because we know, historically, Thirteen spent a decade under house arrest), he'd go psycho.

Also, courtesy of spcnet, have this promo pic, in which it looks like Four and Eight would much prefer each other to fighting over Ruoxi :P Pssst, Ruoxi, maybe you don't have to choose - clearly a threesome is the way to go.



You want larger, you get larger )

If, like me, you have a fondness for Thirteen (my favorite brother!) and a sneaking, irrational fondness for Thirteen/Lu Wu, have this promo pic. OMG, please tell me their friendship/companionship will progress to something else soon. Before their inevitable gruesome demise, that is, as I am sure nobody in this story is allowed more than 2.5 seconds of happiness.



2. Second, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] hanjae for the heads-up, the subbed trailer for Mystery in the Palace is out. Murders, maidservants and Kevin Cheng rocking the queue. All of you fail for not informing me that heroine and her OTP are possibly brother and sister. Who know they may be yet keep on consistently making googly-eyes at each other.



I mean, I approve of possible siblings who do this:



And this:



3. Of all the upcoming dramas from any country, I am most obsessed by Qing Shi Huang Fei with Ruby Lin as a princess loved and desired by two very different warlords. I found this awesome MV for Ruby/Wallace. I am firmly on Ruby/Yan Kuan bandwagon because he's the one who (1) didn't kill her father; (2) didn't hold her OTP hostage to force her to marry him. But still, I adore Wallace so I believe some hatesex would be in order. This drama looks ridiculously gorgeous and I cannot wait for it. I literally rewatch the 15-min trailer on a regular basis.

Watched ep 11 of BBJX and it was a lovely breather in the melancholy and angst. First off, loved that brief moment with Lu Wu and Thirteen when he brought Four over. The intensity in his eyes! Also, the scene with Fourteen in Mongolian disguise was cute cute cute.

Now, on to the main point: Eight/Ruoxi bloody finally!!!! I loved the horse-riding scene when he rescued her - the way he stared at her as she rode on his lap (ok, sadly that sounds much dirtier than t was :p) mmmmmmm and then literally laughing in joy when he realizes she likes him back. Then the scene in his tent when he is wounded and they hold hands and she hugs him back and chemistry aaaaaaaa! I did giggle when she looked away when he was quasi-shirtless while being treated. Damn, girl, you are not really a Manchu noblewoman, why so shy? I'd be ogling that chest for all I was worth and then tackling him down on that couch for some sexual healing. You are a 21st-century girl, come on, for the sake of all fangirls everywhere you have to do it!!!!

I really do think she is too cautious to commit to someone whose future she knows is no good and who has a bunch of complicated interpersonal relationships already. To compare it with JPLH, she is an observer, not a doer like Qing Chuan was. Hence is the tragedy, observer or not, she can't help but be drawn in.

I am not sure I will have caps from now on btw - I download almost 1gb-sized hard subs already so to also download almost 2-gb raws is kinda insane, OTOH, the Eight/Ruoxi stuff begs to be capped. Dilemmas!!!

In other drama news, I finally started watching Fight and Love with the Teraccotta Warrior properly - viki has it subbed. I am four eps in and I like it but not as much as I thought I would based on the premise (Qin general and royal Concubine relive their doomed love through centuries). I think it's because while I love both Du Chun and Ady An, they have better chemistry with other costars. It's still fun though.

I got to say, I am pretty much rolling in cdramas/hkdramas right now - I am watching BBJX, Terracotta Warrior, Relics of an Emissary, Last One Standing and Four Women Conflict and Vigilantes in Masks. I don't think I will be slowing down much either because the drama that comes after the drama after BBJX is the insane cdrama-goes-lakorn "Sealed with a Kiss" with Hawick Lau and then QSHF, the Ruby/Wallace/YanKuan miseryfest which I am dying for. And the Royal Harem is bound to air soon, plus there is Ruyi and Mystery in the Palace, and Legend of the Tiger Amulet and a bunch of others.

Fair warning: while I watch kdramas the most, I go through fits where all I want to do is watch j/tw/cdramas for a while. I believe a cdrama fit is upon me.



Anyway, if you, like me, got obsessed with Kevin Cheng after tuning in to BBJX or you like him (or pretty period pieces) in general, you might view the upcoming Mystery in the Palace as manna from heaven. Or an AU involving Eight in which he gets a girl and doesn't gruesomely die.

Yes, whether because he became enamoured of the Qing hairstyle (which he is one of few men I've seen pull off) and was loath to give it up or for some other reason, Kevin Cheng stars in another Qing era drama, the upcoming Mystery of the Palace. I don't know much about the plot, but I do know he doesn't play any of the princes, which makes me hope for at least a possibility of this not being a top-to-bottom angstfest. [livejournal.com profile] hanjae (I believe) told me his character is in love with Kang Xi's bastard daughter. So yes, definitely not one of the princes unless this drama is going to be a lot weirder than I thought.

So yes, vvvvv excited. Especially since I seem to have fallen madly with Qing style for clothes, hair ornaments etc (minus the braid, though I believe I've watched enough of that to slowly become immune and even brainwashed that is can be attractive. Send help!)

Have some gorgeous caps )

I am hoping this will be more lighthearted and less of the 'rocks fall and everyone dies. Then are all resurrected to be painfully murdered again' variety.

[livejournal.com profile] hanjae (I believe) told me his character is in love with Kang Xi's bastard daughter. So yes, definitely not one of the princes unless this drama is going to be a lot weirder than I thought.

So yes, vvvvv excited. Especially since I seem to have fallen madly with Qing style for clothes, hair ornaments etc (minus the braid, though I believe I've watched enough of that to slowly become immune and even brainwashed that is can be attractive. Send help!)

Have some gorgeous caps )

I am hoping this will be more lighthearted and less of the 'rocks fall and everyone dies. Then are all resurrected to be painfully murdered again' variety.
