1. One of the best things about Yoochun being cast in a drama is that his fangirls are a supremely dedicated bunch and thus you can be sure of a ton of MVs and other things. I mean, someone made a speculative trailer of I Miss You already, splicing Yoochun and Yoon Eun Hye's other dramas:

http://youtu.be/aPoVhOdQ4mY

It's utterly gorgeous. Mmmmm, I am super-excited for this drama - I love the leads and the writer to bits.

2. Speaking of fanworks, I am so lucky with Faith. The ratings for my obsession are mediocre, but the (English-language) fandom seems to have glommed on to it in a huge way. The soompi thread has over 600 pages (!!!!), we have a number of bloggers talking about it, and some very talented people are producing fanfics and vids. Compare it with May Queen, which has almost twice the ratings, yet the blogosphere is pretty dead about. This is all a long intro to a comment that I went hunting for MVs and found some gorgeous ones:



3. Apparently, Kim Bum has been confirmed for That Winter the Wind Blows. Noh Hee Kyung must have really liked him in her previous drama, Padam Padam (he WAS excellent). I've seen some fangirls upset that, once again, it's not the lead, but I really respect his choices - he keeps picking projects by a good writer which entail bouncing off some real heavyweights (in PP, it was Jung Woo Sung and here it will be Jo In Sung). I actually think these are great choices for him.

4. Last but not least, I keep wondering who will be the leading lady in Joo Won's upcoming drama. A lot of the likely candidates are busy. I think it would fun if it was Park Min Young - if I still like her after the horror that was Dr Jin, then clearly she can do no wrong in my eyes.

5. I am currently only following 4 airing kdramas - Five Fingers, Nice Guy, Faith, and Arang and the Magistrate. This is so much easier on my schedule (I dropped The Horse Healer and Oohlala Spouses, at the very least postponed The Great Seer, and I can't say I am watching Glass Mask in any consistent fashion).

I am all caught up on Doctor Jin and it's gotten quite good by now, with the political intrigue, and the question of who Young Rae is (she can't be some sort of backward reincarnation of Mina, but how does she have Mina's memories as they are from the future?), but you know what I really love? The love triangle. Normally I am quite allergic to the trope but here it actually works because both Jin and Kyung Tak genuinely love Young Rae and put her well-being first. Jin treats her with respect and as an equal, unheard of in these times, but it's Kyung Tak's behavior that really strikes me - however questionable his morals overall (though he's still head and shoulders above his creepy family), there is no question he is a wonderful fiance to Young Rae - he doesn't hold her breaking off with him against her, he rescues her repeatedly, and he even lets an unrelated man (and potential love rival) examine Young Rae for breast cancer, alone (because if he came with her, she'd be embarrassed). In 19th century!

Anywho, I want Jin to get Mina and KT to get YR...




So, who do you prefer?

While City Hunter will not win my 'n1 objectively best in quality' kdrama spot (which is most likely occupied by either Mawang, Legend or Worlds Within), it's becoming clearer and clearer that it's certainly the kdrama I most enjoy. It pretty much took everything I would love (and some things I didn't realize I would love until I saw them) and put them in one drama. And it certainly wins 'my favorite kdrama OTP' award! Guuuh, Yoon Sung/Nana are perfect and the actors' chemistry is insane.

Caps from ep 8, a random episode I clicked on and then wasn't able to stop )

I randomly started watching ep 8 and OMG, how much goodness does each ep have? I am now going to rewatch the drama proper despite having no time.

In other news, posters for Arang are out )

You can go from this:



To this:







In 20 minutes' screentime (or a few hours of time within the drama). I always thought people who longed to travel into the past were nuts and am glad to see this drama bear me out (not that Jin wanted to travel back...)

I honestly have no idea why I am enjoying this drama - objectively speaking, it's not particularly good. I think I just find it relaxing mindless viewing - take today - I was much too brain-dead to try to watch Bridal Mask or even Big but Dr. Jin fit the bill nicely and was quite soothing as it is a completely undemanding show that yet doesn't have any characters or tropes that irritate me. In fact, I quite like the protagonists...

1. I don't watch that many jdramas any more, but I have fallen under the sweet, cracky spell of Shiritsu Bakaleia Koukou.

I can almost belive that this delightful half-hour a week show is based on some manga I would have been obsessed about when younger (aww, who am I kidding? I'd still obsess over it). The premise is certainly pure shoujo crack - a derelict all-boys school whose students are all dedicated to fighting merges with an upper-class, super-refined all-girls school. Heeeee..



There is a ridiculously cute OTP: she - proper, ladylike, strongwilled head of girls' school. He - scruffy, emotion-driven excellent fighter head of boys' school. There are typical shoujo situations, a spiffy soundtrack, a surprsingly winning cast, and there are the typical jdrama lessons about teamwork and loyalty. The whole set-up - refined, ladylike ladies are needed to tame macho guys who are unkempt, rough, and love fighting - is a very traditional idea stripped shamelessly bare to its bones but it works.

Caps from ep 2, which is as far as I am into it. I dare you not to like )

2. If this amazing MV by [livejournal.com profile] joonni doesn't touch you, there is something wrong with you.



It pretty much encapsulates how perfect the OTP of Queen In Hyun's Man was. QIHM is not my n1. 2012 drama (though it came close), but Hee Jin/Bong Do are certainly my 2012 OTP:

3. In case you missed it, here is the HD preview for ep 5 of Gaksital.



I need this ep in my life ASAP! I've seen speculation that the Gaksital we see here is Kang To, donning the mask to rescue Dan. I would love it to be true (what's not to love? KT strikes me as someone who would put this on to protect someone he cares about - he is capable of immense love for the small group of people he cares for, is impulsive and hot-tempered, and has a certain disregard for rules) but I don't really think so - where would he get the mask - I am assuming they are less popular marketplace items now, with the cops hunting the wearer. And it might be too soon for him to both discover who Gaksital really is AND borrow the stuff from him.

[Poll #1846158]

4. I continue enjoying Dr. Jin for Song Seung Heon's sexy grimy face and his chemistry with Park Min Young. Lee Bum Soo is stealing the show. Jaejoong's character crossed an irrevocable line when he burned the village down (!!!) - I can understand what drove him to it, but there are some things you do not do and I think that would have lost him Young Rae's heart for good. JJ is a decent actor, especially for an idol, but I wish this role had a really good actor because that role has a lot of potential.

Off to watch ep 6 of A Gentleman's Dignity now.

1. The preview for ep 5 of A Gentleman's Dignity promises me this: Warning: hyperventilation territory ahoy )

2. This trailer for ep 3 of Bridal Mask (thanks, anon!). Cannot. Breathe.



3. Despite for my love of Jin/Young Rae, I actually found myself alternashipping her with Korean Edward Cullen in ep 4. I mean! He saves her from murderers! There is comfort hugging! Etc! I think she should alternate...



Caps from scene and youtube clip of same )

4. To my complete and utter shock, I actually adored the first episode of Big, the Hong Sisters' drama starring Lee Min Jung and Gong Yoo. I only checked it out of sheer boredom, expecting to hate it (I normally cannot stand Lee Min Jung and I used to love Hong Sisters a long time ago but all their recent dramas made me want to bleach my eyeballs with acid), but perhaps because my expectations were low, I found it lovely, lovely lovely.



Tbh, if I didn't know Hong Sisters wrote this, I would never peg it as a recent drama of theirs - the frenetic pace is absent, the zany brittle preciousness (that their fans find wonderful but grates on me) is absent, nobody is walking around like a cartoon on steroids (I am looking at you, Dokko Jin, who best belonged in a Bugs Bunny cartoon), and the characters actually feel like people that might exist in real world. It is even more mellow than their early works, let alone their latest stuff. (Not to bash frenetic - when done right, it's great, but I don't think they've managed to do it right since Hong Gil Dong).

I am also shipping our 24-yr-old teacher heroine with our 18-yr-old student (who ends up in Gong Yoo's body) like mad. In fact, this drama feels like nothing but a supernatural twist on Biscuit Candy and Star Teacher (also starring Gong Yoo :P) or Romance or (a very very light take on) Majo No Jouken. Color me shocked.

Now, I am not sure how it will turn out - the moment wacky OTT kicks in, if it does, I am out. But for now, what a lovely lovely surprise.

I am not sure if the drama is objectively getting better or I have just been drawn in, but I thought ep 3 was genuinely good, and not just 'cracky cheesy entertaining.'

For me, it is still about the OTP - Jin and Young Rae are pretty much everything I want in an OTP - grown-up, functional (with angst too), dedicated and competent, and she's ladylike but constrained by her times and with a will of steel and he's just so decent...

Plus, PMY and SSH both look so pretty in period clothes and have such lovely chemistry.
