I have seldom seen so many pissed-off people in one place as there are currently in the East of Eden soompi thread (not since Powerful Opponents days - grrrr, PO was such a perfect drama with an ending that made no sense). And I can see why! spoiler for the ending )

I shall solace myself with the pretty shippy.

Ok, so Powerful Opponents ended.

You know what else ended? My brief attempts to watch dramas as they air.

I dislike it and it always comes back to mess me up. PO would be only the third drama I have ever watched as it aired all the way through. The other two were Hana Yori Dango 2 and Hong Gil Dong. This experiment has officially failed because I get RAGEFUL at endings 66.7% of the time. I love Iljimae but I will wait until completion.

Ramblings on real-time watching, unpopular endings, and open endings. Spoilers for a whole bunch of dramas but very very vague spoilers )

Powerful Opponents ep 15 spoilers!!!

Spoilers here )

One more day one more day one more day and I find out who she ends with. If it's not Gwan Pil, I am buying tickets to Korea to go on a rampage at the writers' room.

Also, and I am not complaining, but I was looking for Emperor of the Sea mvs on youtube, but does anyone make shippy vids that aren't Song Il Gook and the lead girl? I mean, I feel bad for her canon OTP :P

[livejournal.com profile] filmi_girl and I watched episode 12 of Powerful Opponents together.

So good. I really love the pacing in this drama and the characters and the soundtrack, and everything.

But all I can say is...if Gwan Pil doesn't end up with Young Jin and Ggot Nim, I will kill something. He keeps sacrifing and sacrificing and sacrificing for others, and his statement to Su Ho's sister that all he wants is to stay by people he cares for, and can't he do that, at the end of ep 11, sort of killed me. I am all for Su Ho getting to be Ggot Nim's Daddy too, and meeting some awesome girl and marrying her later, and they can all move in with the awesome Cha family (let Mrs. Oh marry Young Jin's Dad and move in too), but nobody take Ggot Nim away from Gwan Pil!

Behind the cut are caps and meta on my fave scenes )

Just when I thought it was impossible for me to love Powerful Opponents more, I found out that Ryu Jin and Han Go Yun are making cameo appearances in the last ep, as a senior bodyguard (him) and a junior (her).



EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

I mean! They were such a perfect, awesome OTP in Capital Scandal. Complicated Policeman and Tough Courtesan, ILY!

*uses appropriate icon*

Please, please, let them be an OTP :)

Yeah. Who knew my cracky prediction, about GP and SH forming a cool gay couple with a kid, and YJ being their den mother was going to come true! LOL.

Or, if you prefer an OT3:



I have no idea if they are promo pics or from an ep, but there is a lot of glee from yours truly.

Things that make me happy:

1. Daemul isn’t scrapped. The air date has been pushed to October, which I can deal with. Hopefully they will iron things out by then.

2. The fangirls in the JJH thread on soompi. They are discussing possible kissing scenes in Antique and are torn between horror (oh noez! Their oppa might be kissing another guy!) and delight (at least it’s not one of those icky girls). Heeee. I really wish this was a drama and not a movie, but oh well, beggars can’t be chosers. Still, 16 episodes of JJH reliving cake-related childhood abduction trauma and dealing with advances of the hot Waffle Sunki, whose sexy gay love he rejected in high-school, would have been pretty awesome.

3. Yup, Winter Sonata is definitely being made into an anime.


Heee.

4. Powerful Opponents has certainly become the drama of the spring for me. Who would have thought…I wasn’t very familiar with/attached to any of the leads before it started. Especially amusing is that I mainly checked it out to see Lady Bodyguard and President’s Son hook up but ended up the hugest bodyguards!shipper. Heeeee. Oh, Gwan Pil :)

5. Even though I want Gwan Pil/Young Joo with a scary level of fangirling, I do like Su Ho as a character, and adore Lee Jin Wook, who plays him. I just don’t want him with Young Joo. So imagine my delight when I found he was in a drama where he did get the girl, last year’s Someday. The plot sounds delightful. Our Heroine is a reserved manga artist, who doesn’t really believe in romantic love much. She comes to Korea and meets Secondary Guy, a manga fanboy who is smitten and decides he is in love at first sight, not even noticing the cool Secondary Girl who has loved him for years. Secondary Guy hires our Hero, Lee Jin Wook, a private investigator with a tragic past, to follow his dream girl. And it goes from there… Happy endings for everyone abound, so what’s not to love. I don’t think fansubbers ever did this drama, but a DVD with subs is available from YA. I mean, look at the cute MV!



5. PO is winding up next week. But luckily, I have a new drama fixation to take its place…Iljimae. And speaking of, ep two subs are out! I have only watched the first half of first ep and I like it a LOT. I don’t love it as much as Hong Gil Dong, but it’s early days yet, and in any event, HGD pinged my fiction loves uniquely. Oddly, I can also see why it’s getting better ratings: it’s a lot more traditional in its approach than HGD.

So yes, Iljimae. I am sure my like will transform to LOVE as soon as poor little Iljimae will lose his privileged existence and his family at the age of eight (???), grow up to be Lee Jun Ki and begin his awful yet photogenic torment and suffering. Also, any clue which of the two girls is his OTP? I don’t mind either way. One way we get so beloved by me trope of aristocrat-slave (though would Iljimae be considered a slave? I mean, he was born upper class. But then Ha Ji Won lost all her aristocratic status when her family was executed in Damo, and became a slave…so.) Plus, that would mean he falls for the girl whose Dad killed his family, thus giving me shades of Time Between Dog and Wolf. However, if we don’t get that, I don’t mind a bit.It would also be fun if he hooked up with thieving peasant girl, sort of like Legend. I already got aristocrat/slaveOTP with Hong Gil Dong and Damo and it was all so perfect, plus I can have my fill of angsty avenger/gently brought lady otp angst with Strongest Chil Woo which is coming out later this summer. Also, this way I can have a ‘I am in love with my not!sibling’ OTP of aristocrat girl and Iljimae’s nemesis, which would also make me happy.
