1. I have watched ep 11 of You're Beautiful, which was cute as always, but ruined a bit for me by two things:

a. They stole the bit with the reporters/hiding the girl from Last Scandal. Let me correct that - not just from Last Scandal, but from one of the best, most powerful scenes in it. I find YAB version derivative and lacking and it kinda made me grumpy. Nobody messes with my Jae Bin/Sun Hee otp not even cute crossdressing boybanders.

b. The fact that I have been recently watching IRIS and it just doesn't compare. There is a saying that women are either Bronte people or Austen people and I suppose it's the same here - you are either an IRIS person or YAB person. Because I like YAB - it's cute, sweet, enjoyable, and fun. But watched in close proximity with IRIS I just get impatient with how dim everyone is. I mean, Minam - you are not retarded - so wtf - she does all these things a ten-year-old could think their way out of (gluing her fingers together? Really? REALLY?) But not just Minam - Jeremy and even Tae Kyung - come on, use those braincells! Anyway, YAB is fine but note to self - do not watch it and IRIS together, it will wreck the former for you as they are so tonally different.

I wonder if, at 31, I am getting too old for teenage dramas because I am at such a different place in my life? I hope not - I love spazzing about them :)

2. I have decided to try to wait watching more Tamra the Island until the extended DVD is out, especially since too much viikiiing leads to eye-strain. Let's see how long I can hold out.

3. I started On Air on dramafever and I really like it - it's solid and a good way to spend the time - it's won't make me rabid or sleepless but it's steadily good. Plus, Park Yong Ha and the world of dramamaking. How could I not want this?

And we get this:



Adorableness )

4. I like JIN but the bodily fluids and the curing of said things grosses me out - I kina skip through those parts. I am so not made for medical shows.

5. I went insane and downloaded ep 9 of IRIS just so I could cap this bit from the preview.



Bit here )

dangermousie: (Silence rainy hug by scottishlass)
Oh, Ji Oh, you utter utter idiot! I want to stab you in the face. And then hug and make it better. Have gone bipolar.

I have to say, this is the most realistic way I have ever seen a break-up (and reasons for it) handled in a drama. A bit of a spoiler for it )

But now, he is being a cold bastard and pretending it does not bother him at all even though he is still so very much in love. I do love that she fights him on it.




And just to spread the joy all around, my secondary OTP has also gone into break-up angst land for very different (but also realistic) reasons - Kyu-Ho has spent his whole life being the good son, and it can't be good for his father's political career to have a son involved with a rising actress and in gossip rags or whatever. And he did warn her, when they started the relationship. But guess what? I bet she will be able to deal with it, despite her heart-break and he won't.




I do love how 'intrinsic' and organic the reasons for break-ups are. These men are breaking up with women who they love and who love them. And it's making them wrecked, but it also totally makes sense for them to break up. Interestingly, it's the women in this drama who are the really fearless ones, the stronger ones. The men are just lucky that the gals realize even the men they love can be utter idiots and take them back after suitable grovelling. Not because the women are weak and need a man, but because they love these particular idiots.

Oh, and here, because I am mad at Ji Oh (even if I totally understand him), have a little Joon Young and assistant director necking. Hah! That look on your face is well-earned, boy!




Last note: I love how, just as in reality, work and family and other real life activities interfere with their fights or emotional scenes or whatever. In the middle of her heart-breaking conversation with Ji Oh, Joon Young has to stop because she has to go to work. Yes. That's how it usually is.

Oh, and watching WW has made me eager to watch more dramas about dramas, so I will start On Air, once I am done with WW. It won't be as good, but what is, and this also has Park Yon Ha...mmmmmmm. Plus the below MV is adorable. He is a director, she is a writer. Yay!

Grrrrr. Stupid On-Air is being extended by three episodes which means Iljimae will start two weeks later than it was supposed to.

Boooo!

I am sure OA is a nice enough drama, but a show about TV business with no actors I love, or a show with Lee Jun Ki swordfighting and forbidden-loving in period clothes? Come ON. Also, I suppose it moves all their dramas off by two weeks, which also moves Daemul (which I think is after Iljimae?) by two weeks too. Booo. Once again, I am much more of a 'drama about first female President whose enemies scheme to ruin her by hiring a guy to try to seduce her' kinda gal.

Booo. BOOO.

OA is thus going to be 23 episodes. The only dramas I think (except for those horrendously long sageuks, which is another matter entirely) that can be this long and not drag are Hong Gil Dong and The Legend, but both of those had politics and warfare to add to the mix so there was enough stuff for 24 eps. I mean, normally even 24-ep dramas I love, like Bali and Goong, would have benefitted from snippy scissors.

I guess I am just grumpy. Grrr. Boooooo.

I think I’ve been in the drama fandom for too long when my reaction on finding out there are Kang Ji Hwan/Han Ji Min rpshippers is to go ‘awwwww, that means Capital Scandal is loved, yay!’ and not the ‘eeeeeek’ it would have been a few months earlier. LOL.

In other news, is anyone interested in On-Air? It just started airing (and has been picked up for subbing). The story is about the drama making world (I love stories about themselves) and revolves around four characters: temperamental big star Kim Ha Neul, a production manager/agent Lee Bum Soo, a PD who is stalled in his career Park Yong Ha, and a successful script-writer Suh Young Eun. Drama about dramas. Sounds lovely. Plus, it seems like a story with four main characters/two couples (KHN/LBS and PYH/SYE), not an eternal love quadrangle, which makes me happy.

I am also mildly interested in the recently started Who Are You, if for nothing else than sheer bizarreness of the plot. The story is thus: Our hero, Cha Seung Hyo (Yoon Kye Sang), is an abandoned child who gets adopted in the US and grows up to be a cold-hearted, ruthless businessman (we all know, people in the US are ebol). Well, he is grown-up and back in Korea and his paths cross that of Son Young In (Go Ara), our heroine, a manhwa author wannabe. They don’t hit it off too well, but here is the twist! Young In’s Dad recently passed away and I kid you not he becomes a ghost who is capable of taking over Seong Hyo’s body for three hours a day for 49 days, in order to watch over his daughter. WTF. I repeat, WTF. Kdrama makers, I love you for the sheer crack.

Oh, and dramabeans had an awesome post about Lee Seo Jin being a guest on Kim Jung Eun’s music program. Post is here. Adorable! Commander Hwangbo Yoon, I am glad to see you so happy, even if the fact that you hooked up with your Lovers co-star/OTP and are apparently even talking marriage gives further hope and fodder for crazed drama rpshippers. Also, has anybody been watching LSJ’s Yi-San? It has craaaazy ratings and I love period dramas, and it also costars the adorable Han Ji Min, but I don’t think anyone on my flist is watching it and I want to have a flist stamp of approval before committing to 70 (???) eps. I have to say, LSJ must have magic drama picking skills and/or a good agent. All of the dramas I can think of that he starred in have been big hits: Yi-San, Lovers, Damo, Phoenix.
