dangermousie: (Mawang otp by miss-dian)
I have decided that it was about time for me to update and expand my favorite kdrama primer yet again (which I first did some months ago). Not only were there a bunch of kdramas I wanted to add to the list, but I wanted to rearrange the order of some of the dramas on the list already (except for the first three or so, the placement of the other ones within the rankings is fluid and moves based on my mood) and very much expand it.

So behind the cut are 25 of my favorite kdramas, with summaries, reasons why, pics and vids. I have tried to keep it as unspoilery as possible.

No kdrama I have not finished is on the list because I want to have seen the complete drama before evaluating the fave status. Also, I watch a lot of dramas, but I have hardly seen all or most kdrama out there, and there are some very famous ones I have never seen. I am always open to recs and am always looking for said recs.

Now, without too much further verbosity, Dangermousie's 25 favorite kdramas list, new and improved.

dangermousie: (HGD cheek by miss-dian)
2008 is almost over and Hong Gil Dong is still my favorite kdrama of the year: hilarious and heart-breaking, politically fascinating and romantically swoony. If somehow you managed to friend me and yet avoid reading about HGD, it's a 24-ep period drama (though I use that term liberally as it is very tongue-in-cheek with both the sense of time and place and period drama conventions) starring Kang Ji Hwan as Gil Dong, an illegitimate slave son of a noble who is reluctantly drawn into a struggle against a mad king and opressive feudal system, and Sung Yuri as Yi Nok, a slightly dim but good-at-fighting, cheerful, and heart-of-gold medicine peddler with a mysterious and tragic past, as well as Jang Geuk Seuk as the supposedly legitimate and sane heir to the throne his mad half-brother occupies. And I found this MV, which perfectly encapsulates the manic energy of it all which first drew me to it:



And because I adore Sung Yuri, here is her kissing scene with Gong Yoo from One Fine Day, one of my fave kissing scenes in kdramas:

Since Powerful Opponents made me think about drama endings. Now, we all know about those infamous ‘last minute unhappy endings’ which seem to be tacked on to inflict utmost misery (Glass Slippers’ infamous ending, I am looking at you) or those dramas which would pretty clearly end happily as are giggle-fest or unhappily, as they involve hot people with terminal illnesses.

But how about that rare yet delightful category of dramas: surprising happy endings. Not ones that could have gone either way (Smile Again, QSS) but ones you did not expect at all. Behind the cut are Dangermousie’s Top Dozen Most Surprising Happy Endings.

Also, I watch a lot of dramas, but I have hardly seen all or most kdrama out there, and there are some very famous ones I have never seen.

As you can, no doubt, tell by my earlier semi-coherent posts, I finished One Fine Day earlier today. I loved it to bits (going on my fave kdrama list, I really must do a revised one) and I especially loved Gun/Ha Neul. So an OTP!



So here is a picspam of Gun/Ha Neul, of some incredibly awesome scenes from eps 14-16. They really did make me nonverbal.



Gun and Ha Neul's stolen perfect day )

Ha Neul telling Gun she loves him )

Kissing scene )

Gun and Ha Neul spend evening at amusement park, because soon he has to leave )

Happy ending!!!! )

Seo Gun hopes you enjoyed the picspam.

'Nae Sarang Ha Neul'

SQUEEEEE!!!!

(I also need a screencap of Gong Yoo with bunny ears. Sooooooon, my preciousssss, sooooooon).

And the rollercoaster, and the word games, and the hugging and her letting him go....

I love that Ha Neul is so unselfish, unlike awful Secondary Girl who I want someone to off messily and NOW.

ETA: HAPPY ENDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But WTF, the frelling BITCH made him stay with her for three years?????

WTF diediediedie. She now joins Tennis Girl from My Girl and other girl from The Outsiders in the trifecta of my most hated other girls ever.

But ohhhh, Ha Neul is still waiting and he goes to Korea and finds her and EEEEE! ILYs, and hands and awesomeness. That last image on their hands pressed through acquarium glass and smiling is...

*meep*

So happy, want to write fanfic now :)

Oh, they are SUCH an OTP.

SECONDARY GIRL I WANT YOU TO FUCKING DIE NOW IN THE MOST PAINFUL FASHION POSSIBLE!!!!

DIEDIEDIEDIEDIEWHYWON'TYOUDIE!!!!!

Argh. The last time I hated the 'other girl' so was the Tennis Girl in My Girl.

The waves of rage emanating from me could probably power a small city.

YOU STUPID SELFISH HORRIBLE BITCH!!!

I am in the middle of ep 16, and she is all 'I might die soon, from my heart condition which wouldn't be as serious if I took my medicine on time, and might get surgery which might turn out well or not. So, Gun, even though you have already spent most of your life taking care of me, and negating yourself utterly, and doing horrible stuff to get me money for medicine (which I don't take!), and even though you have recently found the love of your life, someone without whom you are clearly incomplete and not living but merely existing, and even though she loves you back, and you have overcome all these obstacles, but still...You feel bad for me, right, right? So how about you give everything up for me, everything you ever wanted, the woman without whom you can't live, and come to Australia with me, even if you never indicated you loved me ever. I mean, who cares if this is wrecking your life, and eviscerating your heart, and it won't make you love me. Come anyway, because it's all about me, and I know how you view me as a responsibility so will do it if I guilt and push enough, even though the mere thought of being without your OTP makes you fall apart at the seams?'

I HATE YOU HATE YOU HATE YOU HATE YOU.

Because he is so going to do it, and ohhhh, what kind of person pushes and pushes on someone she pretends to love guilt and protectiveness and goodness (and a little feeling he is unworthy of happiness) to deny him the one thing he wants, and after he's already done so much for her. And I mean, she wants Gun to be in hell again, to give up happiness voluntarily, for her selfish, stupid sake?

I WANT HER TO DIE SO BADLY.

OK, I hate her MORE than the Tennis Girl.

DIE.
