First off, more Legend of Chu and Han goodies:



Mmmm, where are the Peter Ho fangirl flisties hiding?

Posters and embedded trailer )

This is going to be Eddie Peng's haircut for Da Mo Yao?



Even though I feel disloyal to Koala, I could so get on-board this train! The abs don't hurt.

Speaking of good-looking, I am simply agog to watch the upcoming King of Lan Ling, a war epic/love story which apparently is based on a legend about a warrior king so gorgeous he had to wear a mask into battle so as not to distract people (so like Chinese Finnick? :P) It's Ariel Lin's comeback to period cdramas and I love her in them, and it stars my darling Feng Shao Feng as the titular character. RAWR:



Though I confess, much as I adore FSF, I think it's a bit of a stretch to label him an unearthly beauty. I'd say Wallace Huo, who is so gorgeous it's unreal, or Huang Xiao Ming, who's pretty much perfection in human form, would fit the bill much better. And ditto Kevin Cheng, Chen Kun and Hu Ge. Also possibly Nic Tse. But not really FSF, attractive though I find him.

Examples of those gentlemen's beauty )

Finally, Nicky Wu is doing Bride with White Hair. I simply MUST watch that when it's out. Ahh, cdramas, always wonderful.

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).

The amazing [livejournal.com profile] ockoala linked me to this clip of an upcoming Four/Ruoxi scene.

I think I might just die from the chemistry and intimacy and comforting...



OMFG I ship those two so ridiculously much.

While we are on topic of LSS, I am very excited about her upcoming drama Xuanyuanjian with Hu Ge (who is, sadly, not playing her love interest). The trailer looks fun:



Plus, Hu Ge!!!

I am out of subbed BBJX episodes so I've been scouring raws. And then I got to episode 20.

Oh my God.

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.

I haven't yet watched eps 8-10 because I am saving them for the weekend, but I cannot let the day go without making a BBJX post. This one is dedicated to how ridiculously gorgeous this drama is. It just may be the prettiest drama I've seen.

How is it that I am falling in love more and more with this drama with each episode? At this point, it is behind only The Myth as my favorite cdrama. Apparently the ratings aren't great and it is a complete pity, but I actually get why JPLH was more successful - there is no clear-cut good guy/bad guy divide here (both Four and Eight are all shades of grey) and the shippy stuff is messy. Also, this is a character and mood piece - if I think about it, there has not been much traditional plot so far. I don't care because this is so gorgeous and smart and makes me love the characters so, I do not find lack of traditional narrative off-putting, but I can see how it won't be everyone's cup of tea.

Ok, first, I need more Four/Ruoxi ASAP. We haven't had nearly enough of them yet and every interaction leaves me gasping for more with its combo of chemistry, undercurrents, sharpness, and fun - it's like everything comes into focus when they have scenes together. Also, by now it is clear to pretty much everyone but Ruoxi that poor Four is utterly smitten, but he is showing it in such a brusque way, she is not noticing (well, that and she is having Eight-shaped stars in her eyes). But ahhh, those quick intense pleased glances he gives her totally kill me. Also, he is clearly thinking she likes him, which is an understandable mistake on his part, and is rife with potential.

Eight, I continue to adore him but I just can't ship him with Ruoxi. Four likes her for herself but Eight likes her for shadows of Ruolan and she deserves to be loved for herself. Also, while both Four and Eight are equally complicated and intimidating, somehow she feels more equal with the former, perhaps because she is not crushing on him (her annoyance when he came to teach her riding was hilarious, especially since she thought he was Thirteen and was all 'why don't we lie on the blanket together?' and be says OK. LOL. Seriously, he has a very dry sense of humor).

Speaking of Thirteen, I continue to adore him. Is he going to have a thing with the Mongolian princess or was I just imagining things? I confess, he is my favorite of the brothers and the only one I'd consider hooking up with (significantly, his personality reminds me a lot of Eight's personality in JPLH and I was obsessed with him - clearly I have a type when it comes to Qing royalty). I mean, he is strong-willed and not a dummy like Ten but he is also not dreadfully complicated liked Four and Eight are.

Ahhh, Eight. I almost wish he and Ruolan ended up in two different countries a thousand miles apart, because every time he is in her presence, he looks at her with those hopeful, beaten-puppy eyes and I want to die. I think that is why he is so kind and understanding with his first wife - because the way she feels towards him is the way he feels towards Ruolan - hopeless adoration of someone who cannot love you back.

You know who I love? Kang Xi. Never thought I would but he is smart and charismatic, if also scary as hell.

Random thought - I love these elaborate hairpieces, but do the ladies ever take them down? I mean, do they have sex with their hair still up??? I guess we may be lucky and find out ;)

One niggle (one I have had with every time-travel drama except The Myth) - Ruoxi adjusted very well - she feels almost like a period person now. I would think she would stick out more, at least in her inner life. But I guess then the story would be lopsided.

Final comment - visually, this may be the most beautiful drama I have ever seen.
