This scene in ep 45 is total killer, with YK telling MNC all his fears and issues (his telling her that he was lied to from childhood and as soon as he reached adulthood he started lying in his turn, and if he stopped lying now he wouldn't even know who he was - heartbreaking) and that he's not worthy of her love and trust and her response (and at this point she knows everything) just killed me. Killed me dead.






And his hands are shaking so badly when he reaches to cover hers. Oh. I want him to claw back to sanity and goodness so badly.



But then the freaking idiot Priest shows up and it all goes to hell and I just keep yelling "shut up shut up shut up" every time that moron opens his mouth. Ugh. Yeah, good for you, trying to kill a badly wounded guy at the grave of his parents and instead wounding a pregnant woman. (Nianci is INSANE, holding the bare blade in her hands to protect YK).






So of course that drives YK off the edge again because he has nowhere to go except back to Honglie and another past authority/parent figure has tried to kill him and he can't be with Nianci because she only gets harmed when he's around. Good job, priestly idiot! At least Nianci lays into the useless judgmental pointless freak.

It takes a really special kind of evil to tell the man who had just lost pretty much his entire family - his father and all his brothers - that with his own two hands he has to kill the woman he loves or else he's not getting the antidote for the poison with which you poisoned his soldiers.

aaaaaa


aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

My jaw.

Floor.

Pan Ying, I believe you may have just claimed the crown of the worst human being I've seen in a drama.



I mean, the term psycho bitch is in no way adequate to describe it. Especially since she seems to be operating from "I know you can't love me, but if I can't have you, your OTP can't either and I will make you suffer for all eternity in the worst way, too." That would be a psycho attitude under any circumstances, but seeing that Six was always nice to Psycho and that he has just lost his entire freaking family in battle, who does that? AAAAARGH.

Details and caps below. Hu Ge is ridiculously pretty when he's righteous and angsty )

As you can guess, I skipped ahead to ep 42. Basically, I watched them through ep 35 which was so happy it was unbelievable and made me cry from joy and will get its own post. And I know what happens after so I decided to take a break. But not without peeking into ep 42 for whatever reason.

Seriously, what is it with Hu Ge playing characters who get tortured by psychos who insist it's his fault?

I admit that most of Chinese Paladin 3 makes my brain leak out of my ears and I remain pretty indifferent to the main OTP. But the secondary OTP - ah, the secondary OTP is sheer perfection. Grown-up and angsty and forbidden and heroic and just ... aahhhhhhhh.

We finally got their back-story (well, half of it) when the elders opened Warrior Priest's cealed memories from past lives (yup, his and Snake Girl's lurve was so strong, he would have remembered it despite reincarnation) and - OMG!

The cutest first meeting ever and other adorableness )

And it would have all worked out just fine except for idiot priests!

Argh!!!! WTF is wrong with you, priests! Seriously!

If one of your disciples decided he wants to ditch and not become a priest but instead get married to a girl he's in love with, I have no problem with you preaching at him how love = illusion blah blah blah.

But if he still wants to ditch, let him go!!!!!! I don't think intercepting his and his OTP's letters and then lying to him she died is a proper way to get someone to join priesthood!

See caps )

That's coercion and lying and evilness and somehow I think is against your wows! Ugh. Die please, and quickly. WTF is wrong with you, this is not how you get someone to join your freaking sect!!!

Oh, and when he finds out you lied and tells you he's leaving with the woman he loves, I don't think you are supposed to send out a posse to catch them and make "the witch pay for her crimes."

Reunion awesomeness caps )

He's of age, he can do what he wants, including quit your psycho sect, especially since you tricked him into joining in the first place.

Hooray for you, you got them to commit double suicide. And you still lost a disciple, morons! Ugh, die yourselves.

Tragic and shippy and perfect. I hate you, idiot priests! )

These monks are about as righteous as monks in Return of the Condor Heroes. Ugh.

Main OTP caps for those thus inclined )

So, was sufficiently obsessed curious about the Plot Development of Doom in ep 16 of New Gisaeng to check it out raw and look what we have:



More caps of resident weepy photogenic angsty emo because that's how I roll )

Am madly puzzled right now! Soompiers seem to be just as puzzled as I am as everything points towards (a) Damo is madly in love with Saran (b) he's horrifically miserable to dump her (c) it's not as if he presented her as prospective bride to his parents and they said nope.

So - whaaaaat? Whyyyyy? Why would a seemingly un-insane young man dump his girlfriend without any warning and without any good reason, seeing that he's totally in love with her, their relationship has been progressing swimmingly, and he's completely devastated to let go and that obviously his "well, I dated to get into your pants but you are not letting me into them fast enough so buhbye" excuse is clearly a 100% lie.

Soompiers are saying he's been weird since his trip to Japan. If this was a 1990s melodrama starring Choi Ji Woo, I'd be guessing there is a deadly illness involved, but clearly not the case, so what?

Am so very curious!

Bonus, here is awesome Saran post break-up. She's definitely my favorite character in the drama and one of my fave heroines in general because she's this rarity in kdrama land - she's very contained and reserved and nothing is going to break her in public. Her self-posession and maturity are amazing.



Damo, you are such an idiot to let her go!

P.S. I know I am way behind on replies, I promise to get to them soon.

I haven't watched ep 16 of New Tales of the Gisaeng yet, but apparently, Damo broke up with Saran, telling her he was only courting her to get into her pants and since it wasn't working (i.e. no hanky-panky ensued), they should end it.

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT?????!!!

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY??????????????

What have you been drinking, young man? You are seriously in love with her, more than she is with you, actually. So WHAT THE HELL????? I am not really caught up on the latest eps so no idea how it got to that point, but if this was some sort of a dysfunctional ploy to get her to cling to him, that is sure to backfire - Saran is incredibly emotionally self-sufficient and closed-off, she's hardly going to turn into insane kdrama secondary girl. She's just going to wall off forever. I loved her response to him though - thanking him for telling her the truth, even if it's a cruel truth, and she wished he told her sooner because she liked him. Awwwwwww.

Man. ARGH. I have no idea why you did something so bloody idiotically stupid, Damo, but I hope you suffer suffer suffer. I can't wait for Saran to become a gisaeng and pay zip attention to you and for you to pine and keep thinking why on earth you were such an idiot earlier. I want to see you grovel and suffer suffer suffer suffer SUFFER!!!!

Um. I think I may be unhealthily invested in this drama.
