My current obsession with The Princess' Man sent me on a major Park Shi Hoo craving, preferably in something where the odds of a happy ending are not 0.02%.

And then I remembered I had all of Family Honor already in my greedy hot hands. And that FH was written by the same writer who wrote Gloria (one of my all-time favorite dramas) and Pick the Stars (a drama that I adored to a ridiculous degree). And I was set.




Two episodes in and I am so glad I decided to do this (though my eyeballs might not thank me as I foresee another marathon) - I am obsessed. Just as in Gloria and PtS, Family Honor features strong women and complicated men, a fascinating milleu, and secondary and even tertiary characters I find fascinating. Our heroine is a widow in a large, traditional, and pretty dysfunctional family. Our hero, played by Park Shi Hoo, is a nuveau riche upstart with a chip on his shoulder who cannot help but be fascinated by her. This is so good!

Have a MV:



I tried it ages ago but it was with horrific subs and awful vids so I couldn't stick it. But now I have great subs and crystal-clear vids and yeah...sleep is a distant prospect now. Also, pretty much airing drama except for The Princess' Man is likely on hold.

I AM OBSESSED.

Side note - what is it about Park Shi Hoo? He's nothing to look at in stills but the second he is on screen, my heart leaves my body and pretty much into his character's vicinity in a stage of slavish adoration. I am so glad TPM is a hit (its ratings keep rising - it was almost 17% for the latest ep) as this means more PSH on my screen. I have yet to see him in a role I didn't like even when the drama itself does not work for me (Iljimae, I am looking at you).

So, I went trolling for articles on Gloria to try to figure out final OTPs and found one which said (I quote): So Yi Hyun has been cast as the female lead of the upcoming MBC weekend drama Gloria. She’ll be playing the role of Yoon-seo, a “Queen of Tears” who used to dream of being a ballerina, but had to give it up due to an injury, and is the illegitimate daughter of a chaebol man. She’ll also be playing lovers with Lee Chun Hee, who’s playing Ha Dong-ah, a man who has nothing but loyalty to his name, and is raising his young nephew alone.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!! Yessssss! Thug/Suicide Girl are supposed to be the OTP!!!!!

Thank you, drama-makers. Not just because I am shipping them hopelessly and rabidly after the first two eps of the drama but also because it means Bae Doona and Illegitimate Rich Dude are the other OTP and the thought of it fills me with total glee. Rich Dude is so reserved and serious but goes out kick-boxing in dives to get rid of his issues. Bae Doona is so acting-out and tough. She punched him out by mistake at their second meeting! His snooty family will faint if he brings her home! Etc!

But ultimately, oh God, I want Thug/Suicide Girl together with shippy scenes SO BADLY OMG. I mean, he has Parang* as his little nephew, how could it not be awesome? Please please let Parang go on dates with them!

I have rewatched their scenes 3 times in a row already :)

* Parang is only the best kdrama kid character ever, from Pick the Stars. The same child actor is in this.

Read spoilers for the last ep and the amount of glee I have is insane! My perfect hilarious adorable awesome bickering OTP who likes to bicker even more than smooch (though both are present this ep)!

I think my favorite part either PK turning KH's proposal down because she wants to work and not just be a Cinderella and his telling her to not overwork (as opposed to throwing a tantrum or whatever) or the part where PK gets kidnapped and KH gets himself kidnapped too and then they get rescued by the cops and she is all 'you can't even fight, why did you decide to come along?' LOLOLOL.

Total darlings! have fun living in sin in your small new house!

ETA. Also, apparently Kang Ha gave up his soul-sucking job and is basically a neighborhood lawyer in PK's old neighborhood where they live! And they find an abandoned baby on their doorstep (man, how bis IS their family going to get, LOL!) and she also tells him she'll take some time out to get married even though she is busy. LOLOLOL adorableness.

This still is the first time I am genuinely excited for Cinderella Unni.

BRING ON THE TORTURED OTP ANGST PLS.

In other news, ep 19 of Pick the Stars was sheer adorableness with the cuddling and the hugging and the kissing (in the middle of an argument) and the confessions and Parang's glee and their happiness and eeee!

I am so amused to find out that spoiler about ep 19 )

That reminds me, when Nami was sick in ep 18, all I could think of was 'body contact, body contact!' I am hopeless. They totally looked like distraught parents.

1. Pick the Stars ep 18.

* I am a bad bad person. Baby Nami is very sick and all I am thinking is "OMGOMG He is cradling her OMG!!!" Being a shipper will do that to you. This episode had so much touching. Mmm. Shippy mush aside, I really do think the whole thing with Nami shows up that Pal Kang and her brood need Kang Ha - she is capable of providing/caring for them but who is going to provide/care for her? It's really good to have someone there to help you with your burden, as you help the kids with theirs. Plus, Kang Ha is just good in a crisis.

* I felt so awful for PK the whole ep - her baby brother is sick and there is nothing she can do.

* This whole ep was worth it for the look on Kang Ha's face when he learned all of PK's siblings are adopted. That goes so directly towards his issues it's insane.

* Hagface continues insane. In what Universe would she expect a man who is (a) in love with another woman; (b) is only marrying her because she is threatening his brother otherwise; (c) loathes the sight of her - be happy about marriage to her or evince anything but disgust? I do love that she makes it straight for PK (because oooooh sick kid in the hospital, who cares) and KH just grabs her before she gets even within 10ft of PK and has a chance to open her mouth and just tows her away.

* Hagface's marriage plans are about to lie in ruins at her feet - Jun Ha overheard the blackmail and ooooh - poor Kang Ha looked terrified but Hagface looked pissed off too - she knows her chance is gone.

2. Can anyone explain to me the Korean fixation with Yoona? I think she can't act (she was so wooden in 9 End 2 Outs they could have used her instead of the baseball bats), has no charisma, and has a creepy bird face. Yet Korea can't get enough of her. [livejournal.com profile] mishane informed me that the makers of Athena offered her a part (thankfully she turned it down). I presume not lead (though Koreans did think it was a good idea to pair her with Kwon Sang Woo so who knows) but even so - appalling. WHY? I do not get.

3. Trailers and character descriptions for the upcoming sageuk Dong Yi are out. My very short summary of them is thus.

Dong Yi - sort of like an updated Damo - noble girl whose father gets executed for treason and who descends into slavery. Unlike Damo who solved crimes and lusted for her rebel brother, Dong Yi embarks on a much more sustainable course of solving crimes and lusting for her studly King. That way lie nice clothes, tiaras, and all the "off with their heads" you may want, so I am all for it.

Studly King - is a studly King. Strong, smart, ruthless and with conflicts in his harem (genius, stick to one wife!). One thing that strikes me as potentially awesome is that it seems he's the one who ordered Dong Yi's Papa executed in order to strengthen his rule.

Quasi-Bidam - played by every woman's sex fantasy Bae Soo Bin (or, wait, is it just me?). if they expect me not to ship him with Dong Yi, they are crazy, as he is supposed to be her dead brother's best friend protecting Dong Yi all her life as promised and is also a lowly corpse-exeminer by day but a mad-skilled ninja by night - a member of a secret fighting organization that wipes out corrupt officials. He also loves Dong Yi all his life. Sorry, Studly King. Your harem will have to do without adding me to the list of your admirers. You may get Dong Yi but Quasi-Bidam gets my heart.

Evil Wife - Studly King dug her but not Studly King's Mama. Blahblahblah is evil and executed but hopefully not before causing sturm and drang.

Trailers here )
