I am going to try doing something new. Let me know if it's a good idea.

The reason I love kdramas so is, in large part, due to their awesome leading men. So I thought I'd do a weekly post highlighting a different one of my favorites.



And the honor of being the first one in the series goes to...ta-dum...Park Shi Hoo.

All about Park Shi Hoo. A monster post )

OK, that took a while :)

FWIW, I am taking requests - you can post in comment if you want someone specific next time.

1. Official trailer for My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox is out:



It looks much less horrific than the short preview but incredibly unappealing to me just the same. Wacky OTT comedy and I don't really mix. As of now, my main interest in Girlfriend is for it to end so that Daemul can start.

2. I was worried My Princess would be scrapped because the same writer is currently doing Secret Garden but it seems to be still on. Yay! If nothing else, with Song Seung Heon and Kim Tae Hee, it will be the prettiest cast in existence. From what I can gather, the plot revolves around SSH being the heir of some really ginormous fortune - but the grandpa, current possessor of the fortune, decides to give it all to Kim Tae Hee instead, for reasons to be explained. SSH is stuck grooming his replacement for the public and apparently is wondering (presumably wrongly) if KTH is a long-lost grandchild of granpa (fakecest, give me fakecest, pls!) Anyway, I hope this does go through and I am looking forward to it, if for no other reason that I want to enjoy a drama where SSH doesn't get beaten within an inch of his life in every ep and Kim Tae Hee doesn't suffer horrific tragedy.

3. [livejournal.com profile] clairiere posted awesome news - it look like Jung Joon Ho is set to be the male lead in the Queen of Housewives sequel. I think this drama just got added on my to-watch list.

4. I have NO shipping interest in Gun Wook/Jae In (I honestly do not see the chemistry or the narrative interest - bring on Tae Sung/Jae In instead, please) but this was such a pretty moment - the way the drama is shot is incredible.

Out of about a million dramas out there this spring, this is my Drama Spring Roster, i.e. the ones I am following and thus the ones you can expect to see me blab about.

JAPAN

Smile: One episode is out so far. I am so desperate to see this one, I started watching this raw, because arashi.vox's subs are going to be a bit late. Why? I will basically watch anything Matsumoto Jun is in, and this being a love story and social commentary on mistreatment of foreigners, plus written by the writer of Hanadan and Utahime, and directed by the director of Hanadan, I am set, so very set.

KOREA

Princess Ja Myung Go: Eleven episodes are out so far. I have yet to see a Korean period drama that was not good, but PJMG seems especially made for me - a strong female protagonist, doomed love, poisonous politics, amazing fights, dysfunctional families, gorgeous art design. I love this drama so incredibly much.

Slingshot: Five episodes are out so far. I like gritty dark revenge dramas, so it would have probably always been something for me to check out, but once I found out the screenwriter was the one who wrote Legend, Sandglass, and Eyes of Dawn, I came madly on-board.

TAIWAN

Black and White: Four episodes are out so far. It is THE drama of the spring season for me. Have a bunch of my favorite actors, throw in great production values, action scenes, friendship, twisty plot, strong women, and promise of clever story and angst. I am so very sold.

ToGetHer: ten episodes are out. There is always room for whimsical, tender romantic comedy on my list, and I have been quite in love with this drama so far. Not to mention the story of an otaku and a washed-out idol is deliciously off-kilter, and I adore both Jiro Wang and Rainie Yang.

REJECTS

Atashinchi no Danshi (Japan): I like Horikita Maki but not enough to watch her interact with a bunch of remarkably unattractive men.

Knock Knock Loving You (Taiwan): Knock Knock Raping You is more like it. No thank you. I don't need a Dylan Kuo (thankfully the non-rapist in this one) fix that badly.

Empress Chin Chu (Korea): this sounds very much like my thing, being a period epic and a woman-centric one to boot, but I can handle only one long period drama at a time.

Queen of Housewives (Korea): even the title is boring.

City Hall (Korea): you know what is even more boring than Queen of Housewives? A drama about a small-town city mayor. No thanks.

Cinderella Man (Korea): glad as I am to see a drama where Kwon Sang Woo won't die in agony or have his loved ones do the same, this just sounds really really uninspired - though two look-alikes, one poor one rich, is cute enough I might check out if one of my watched dramas ends.
