(Nobody on my flist is doing the below but plenty of others on the net are).

If I see one more whine about Kim Hee Sun being miscast and elderly and chemistry-less and wrong wrong wrong for precious Lee Min Ho due to her advanced age, I am going to go Godzilla.

Yes, she is a decade older. Get over it! She is 35 and looks fantastic - in real life, if she walked down the street, people would turn and stare. The way fan girls rant about it, you'd think she was a palsied 90 with one foot in the grave!

One can disagree about her acting ability (I think she us great and loved her in everything I've seen her in) or the chemistry between the leads (which is smoking) but to view the fact that she is 35 as some sort of unimaginable horror and affront to your sensibilities and KHS as some sort of a cradle-robbing hag is completely and utterly moronic.

I promise, the moment you turn 30, you don't magically develop varicose veins and turn into a crone.

But I bet it's the same fan girls who kept complaining Yoon Sang Hyun was too ancient to live in My Fair Lady at 36. (MFL had plenty of issues but his age wasn't one of them).

I am in the middle of ep 4 of K2H which is the most amazing thing ever that is leaving me speechless and proper post and caps coming but I simply had to pause to yell WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU, PSYCHO KING?! I am now rooting for Batman Villain to off you! Who the hell conducts this sort of experiment? What, the annals of the Stanford Prison Experiment were giving you no peace?

Seriously, you are a sick sick freak and I want you off my screen.

I suppose it does showcase my prior point that Jae Ha does have a hella spine in a crisis, but seriously, what the fucking fuck?!

Grrrrr, die Kingie!!!

EXCUSE ME?!

I am on episode 3 of Sealed with a rapey Kiss and unless I started spontaneously hallucinating, our 'hero' (I use the term loosely) just told the heroine that if she wants him to stop bankrupting her best friend's family as some sort of "I am pissed at heroine, so I'll get to her that way" strategy, he is willing:

a. To make friend his mistress too, just as he did with heroine. Friend, he is sure, will be equally happy to save her father. And they can all move together as a threesome!!!!!
b. If she doesn't like that and wants her friend spared, he's fine, as long as in exchange heroine sleeps with some of hero's business friends who are into that type of thing.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At this point, I am just watching out of sheer 'wtf insanity will I see in my screen next' impulse. I mean, that beats a lakorn - even in those rapey heroes don't want to prostitute the heroine to other dudes for group rape sex!!!!!!

THE HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, yeah, I know he isn't really ruining friend's family (that is a coincidence) and doesn't really intend for heroine to sleep with others, but the FACT that he's telling her that and she (reasonably) believes he means it and he knows she believes it.

THE FUCKING FUCK!!!!! I want him to die so badly, I can feel it!!!!!

RAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The thing is, if they took the heroine out of the story and concentrated on hero and his in-law craziness and business manips, it would be a pretty compelling drama about a bunch of psychos trying to one-up each other - I truly enjoy those scenes. But as it is, I looooong for heroine to get together with her sweet ex, and for hero to die die die die die die die after being tortured for a month slowly.

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE YOU FUCKING ABUSIVE PIG!!!!

ETA Why doesn't the heroine ever react by grabbing a giant knife and telling the hero as she's stabbing him "OK, freakshow, I am done being unselfish for everyone's sake. Let's see how well you torment me and my loved ones from the morgue?"

Probably because she has no standards "You treat me quite well, you never hit me" is what she drunkenly tells the hero.

WTF! Well, if that's your standard...

Good Lord.

Well, at least she calls him a psycho, that's something.

Also, I am incredibly amused that the only time he can show he loves her is when she's drunk or unconscious. I mean, carrying, smoochies, handholding and yearning gaze are better when the recipient is conscious. Yo, freakshow, perhaps she might like you better if you took her out on dates and treated her well, instead of insulting and playing mindgames with her. Just saying!

ETA2: So, I lasted 12 episodes of Sealed with a Kiss but I can't any more. I am out.

I survived Defendant of Love but I can't SwaK, it's too too too enraging.

So, I am out at ep 12, where heroine finally got liberated from psycho (thanks to my fave character, psycho's bro-in-law) and psycho is in despair and heroine got together and is happy with ex.

Hooray!

I will pretend this is the ending and meanwhile fantasize that heroine and ex live happily ever after while Hawick's character is being gangraped in prison.

The end.

Second teaser for Moon that Embraces the Sun is out.



And I am done.

I am officially not even bothering to check out this drama. First we had absolutely miscast against each other leads. Then we had the news that this is a 20-episode drama which has the first six episodes solidly spent on childhood portions. The hell? Leaving aside my personal preferences (I have never managed to do anything but fast-forward through childhood portions of dramas), this seems like an insane idea from the pacing perspective.

And now we have two of the most lackluster, dull trailers in recent memory. There are some kids running around in period clothes. The end.

Usually, if the casting and other stuff looks awful, I will check out the drama if the trailer grabs me. Or, even if the trailers and the idea seem not my speed, I will check out a drama if I am a fan of cast member(s) - see u Bu Jing Xin and City Hunter, both of which had promo videos and info that did not appeal to me, but I checked out for the cast (and ended up loving both).

But I have zero interest in the leads here, so there is nothing, not a single thing to hook me here, other than a somewhat morbid trainwreck gaping.

And why would I inflict that on myself? I will leave this drama to flisties and bloggers who love it. As for me - I think I'd rather rewatch a 'masterpiece' like Peach Girl twdrama instead. At least it had grown ups in it.

Flower Boy Ramyun Shop wasn't my thing but I wasn't ranty about it or anything.

But now I learned it is only the first of a series of dramas centering around Flower Boys. There is an upcoming one about a rock boy flower band and so on (janitor flower boys?).

UGH.

I mean, what can I say about a drama which has no driven narrative point or even a need to make you laugh, but is pretty much a drama to make you buy things and which has no selling point in any promos or in its entire existence, other than 'pretty androgynous boys! look at them! and buy our stuff!'

Not every drama has to have something profound to say. I've enjoyed plenty of fluff. But the utter lack of any animating principle other than "cute people selling stuff" belongs in a commercial and nowhere else.

Plus, I have this horrifying fear of kdramas turning into jdramas and turning into a sea of shrill material with the depth of a puddle geared not to strain the meager talents of various pop idols. (There are still good jdramas, of course, but the amount of the jdrama of the kind I mention is ubiquitous). Ugh.

This has been your rant of the day.

HOW FUCKING FUCKING FUCKING DARE SHE?!





Here's a newsflash, lady (and I use the term 'lady' loosely) - he's not your property or your whipping boy or your toy. Oh, no, he might be finally finding happiness and his own life so what do you do? You expose him in front of his girlfriend but that also takes his whole life away from him. I don't mean in some dramatic "he needs her to live" (though, let's face it - he needs her so he could live with hope as opposed to merely exist), but I mean that his anonymity is taken away for good for everything - no more observing people as a parking attendant, or blending in, or anything. And you have the nerve to look smug?




Bitch. I could have been more forgiving if this stemmed out of thwarted, one-sided love or anything, but there is no love there - just irritation that your posession might be becoming his own person.



Also, it's just stupid. How on earth can she think he'll just happily go back to being her guilt slave?

I've never wanted the ceiling to cave in on anyone more.

Before A Thousand Days' Promise started, I sort of assumed that it was about a loving couple and then a woman gets Altzheimer's. The couple is married, dating, whatever.

Not so fast! Apparently Su Ae is the 'other woman.' You see, Kim Rae Won may love her, but he's marrying the secondary girl.

WHAT?!

I am not even going to get into the fact that I'd like my heroine to have a bit more self-respect than to be the other woman. No, most of my ire is reserved for KRW! WTF, scumbag?! Either you love Su Ae, in which case you should grow some balls and marry her. It's not 1211 - you are not going to be disembowelled by your rich family. Or, you don't love her enough to not marry the arranged fiance - in which case you, sir, are a total scumbag to both women - you should let Su Ae go asap and make it work with your fiance.

Ugh.

How can I have that much rage and I haven't even watched this yet?

I love makjang. I love melodrama. I love conflicted characters. What I do not love is a drama trying to sell me that a scumbag and a weak woman are star-crossed lovers I should feel sorry for.

No.

I'll still check it out but...
