I have tried out the first two episodes of Horse Healer, driven by curiosity and the fact that I had nothing else to watch on the plane. Other than the fact that it was awesome to see Daddy Damsari pop up for a brief role, SKIP SKIP SKIP!!! It's well-made and competently acted, but very much not my thing. I was about as involved as I would be studying merits of rival brands of cardboard. Traditional sageuk about medicine with ample time devoted to childhood *yawn* portions - no thank you. Especially since I saw the trailer for The Great Seer and it looked amazing:



Boring medical stuff with actors I have zero interest in or Ji Sung as a mystic, french kissing, Kim So Yeon, and Ji Jin Hee in skulls and war paint? It's a no-brainer. Oh, and for my fellow Faith fanatics - the sexy sexy warrior played by Ji Jin Hee is the one who eventually kills Choi Young, according to history.

I've also watched the second ep of Oohlala Couple and it was hilarious like nobody's business. The wife is AWESOME and the swap is going to be great. Also, did I get it right that one of the two Fates was responsible for the husband falling for Not-Rie? Hmmm. Not that she was responsible for him being a selfish bastard. Oh, and past life stuff is officially awesome:






I want to watch the past life drama!

Oh, and Glass Mask is finally getting subbed (on viki). I normally don't do dailies, but I am going to check it out due to my love of Seo Woo who is an amazing, underrated actress. I need her to come back to normal-length, primetime, non-weekend dramas. Please?

Finally, I finished To the Beautiful You. It wasn't anything groundbreaking, or anything I will even remember much into next week, but it was fluffy, as cute as it was brainless and, I managed to finish it, which is more than I can say for any other version of that story.

(Plus, the ending was so darn cute!)  )

Even though I enjoyed the 'wronged woman' narrative of the main story of Ohlala Spouses (the drama makes no bones the husband is a scrumbag and is going to get a delicious come-uppance and a lesson from awesome wifey) but I confess my favorite thing were the little flashbacks into the spouses' past lives!




It was all so Gaksital and Capital Scandal. He was a freedom fighter! And she was a geisha who got the information from the Japanese officers for him!



There were smoochies...



And inevitable tragic demise (that whole storyline is actually much more secondary OTP of Capital Scandal, but Shin Hyun Joon is making me think Gaksital).



Oh, and note to all tragic lovers. When you do the whole 'in our next life, let's get married and live happily,' you should probably add a rider 'and please don't make me a cheating scumbag!'



Though I have to say, as an avid Gaksital watcher, the fact that Gaksital Mark 1 and Ueno Rie are knocking boots is mindblowing!



Oh, and Shin Hyun Joon may play a scumbag, but the man is hella hot nevertheless. (Also, I am sure his character will learn appropriate lessons about being a loving husband through fate and body swaps and divorce. But I still want a drama about geisha/rebel instead! Boooo).

A few more caps )

Do you want to hear something hilariously unexpected?

I am loving Ohlala Spouses! I only checked it out because I can't watch Faith until tomorrow but it is a totally awesome wacky quirky hoot! (With the beginning being like a missing episode of Gaksital and the rest pretty much gloriously insane).

I am not sure how much my enjoyment will last - I tend to not be able to maintain interest in wacky for 16 eps - but for now, I am in.

Proper post and caps to follow :)
