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!!!!

Let's see - I don't give a bleeping bleep if you want to spy for Empress Dowager, the way you were supposed to, or instead to become a genuine supporter of your hubby. That's between you and your conscience.

But how about this? You and your husband are meeting some barbarian to buy his horses and the disgusting-looking barbarian about whom you know zip is all "ooooh, I like Mainland girls. Your servant is hot, can I have her?" The servant in question is supposedly a friend of yours, not to mention a human being. Is your reaction "no, I don't know this guy, should I get my friend's input?" or even "this sucks but husband really really needs these horses. I'll ask her as a favor." As if. No, your reaction is "ooooh, goody, the watch their women closely, so I won't have to worry about her reporting to our employer I'm remiss in spying."

Fuck you and your supposedly moral high horse, bitch! You are going to gleefully give away your supposed friend to a disgusting barbarian into sexual slavery, to make your life a smidge easier?

Ugh, die die die die die pig. The thing that drives me most nuts is that we are supposed to view the heroine as kind and root for her and we are not supposed to find this utterly disgusting and appalling. I don't have a problem with Empress Dowager doing this and much worse because she doesn't view herself as nice and neither does the maker. But we are supposed to view the heroine as a positive character - in what universe? She's a despicable, selfish pig and what drives me nuts is that show doesn't share my view. This is the 'best friend' for whom assassin is willing to die? I bet you wouldn't be willing to die so fast if you knew she was going to sell you off like a pair of old shoes. That's what drives me crazy - everyone lurves and is devoted to heroine but they shouldn't be - she's betraying her best friend who is super-loyal, she's spying on her husband who loves her etc. She's scum and I want her dead.

I have a major weird relationship with this drama. I am interested in and/or like secondaries but I cannot stand the heroine one bit. Die die die die please.

ETA: Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat???? You gave her some slow poison so she won't be able to fight off the 'husband' on her wedding night, get raped and be stuck there forever? She was going to kill him and run away back to Empress Dowager so she wasn't going to be a threat to you anyway, you frelling frelling rape-enabling bitch, I hope you roast in hell.

ETA2: Bwahahahahahahahah in your face, bitch! General went a little nuts and went and rescued Lady Assassin. I just love the reaction of the Bitch (sorry, that is how I am referring to heroine from now on - she's literally the most loathsome drama protagonist I've ever seen). "Oh no, all my hard work will go to waste!" I weep for you - I mean, the man foiled your lovely plan to have lady assassin raped, poor you! Just die, you fucking pig. I am seriously blind with rage. I am this close to dumping this drama because much as I dig Lady Assassin/General, like some other characters, enjoy the plotting, and am waiting for FSF/Myolie, I can't even look at the heroine without getting murderous and she's always on screen. I'll try to get through a couple more eps but I don't know, I am hanging by my fingernails here. If I could have a cut of just Yang Mi/Mikey He scenes, I'd just watch them and never look back.

I don't follow American entertainment very closely (after all, I already obsess over Korean one and books and I do need to sleep and play with Baby Mousie sometimes) but I was vaguely aware of Angelina Jolie making her directorial debut in a movie which was a love story set during the civil war in former Yugoslavia. "Hmmmm,can be interesting" thought I but that was the extent of it.

Until today, when I learned that "[h]er directorial debut deals with a Bosnian Muslim woman falling for a Serbian soldier who rapes her during the Bosnian war."

I repeat: Her directorial debut deals with a Bosnian Muslim woman falling for a Serbian soldier who rapes her during the Bosnian war.

EXCUSE ME????

THE FUCK???????

Just to make it clear, this isn't supposed to be some hard-hitting look at damages of war. No, this has been escribed as a sweeping star-crossed love story.

Can I barf in the corner now?

Is she going to do a follow-up about a Jewish woman and a SS officer who kills her family but then they fall for each other? Or how about a romantic comedy about a Tutsi widow having to move in with a Hutu militia member who torched her place and killed her neighbors and then they bond?

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH HER, SERIOUSLY.

I like messed-up love stories, but there is messed-up and there is really sick and disgusting and "how could you even think about this?".

But maybe I am just being a curmudgeon. Who doesn't adore love blossoming between a genocidal rapist and his victim? Awwwwwwww.

RAAAAAAGE.

I literally have tears of rage in my eyes right now.

I have just watched (with ffing as much as I could) 4 episodes of Thai lakorn Autumn Destiny.

I have sworn off lakorns (their rape fixation makes me sick) but this was some sort of a Korean co-production set entirely in Korea so I thought...how bad could it be.

Well, it doesn't look like there will be any raping. That's about all I can say for it.

So, let's see.

We have Wendy, a Thai girl who meets and gets engaged to a Korean guy, Chungmin, while studying in Boston. They are...shockingly...functional, happy, and he has no tendency to drag her by the hair, tie her up, rape her, kill various people, etc. In fact, he cooks for her, and says romantic things and, when the inevitable thugs come, protects her and takes bullets for her. It was so surreal and un-lakorn-like that I even let my guard down and assumed the drama will deal with the fact that his family is less-than-pleased about the engagement (amusingly they don't want a Thai girl for him while being played by Thai actors themselves :P) and her family is dead-set against because Wendy's Korean Dad abandoned Wendy's Thai Mom. So, I thought - cute OTP, faces obstacles blah blah nice. Or at least that would be the plot if it was a kdrama.

I should have known better.

When she goes to visit her birth father, she gets kidnapped by evil thugs hired by her aunt who does not want to split the inheritance and Changmin gets horribly injured protecting her. In fact, he's in a coma. His parents are even less pleased with Wendy as a prospective bride and his mother throws down the gauntlet - she will only be OK with Wendy if Wendy gets her son to wake up.

OK, so far, so good.

BUT WAIT.

If you think this is the main story, THINK AGAIN.

All along we have been neglecting a scowly 'tough', vengeance-driven hero. He works for Wendy's real Dad, flirts with Wendy's half-sister, and holds a grudge against Wendy's Dad for murdering his own father. His revenge plan? I SHALL KIDNAP THIS RANDOM GIRL WHO HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ME AND HOLD HER TIED UP IN AN ISOLATED SHACK AS SOME SORT OF BIZARRE REVENGE AGAINST HER FATHER. Why he doesn't seem to grab the daughter Daddy actually brought up and knows and loves is beyond me. Perhaps all the testosterone is poisoning his brain.

Yes. After arriving in a strange country, surviving a horrifying experience via thugs, having her FIANCE ON DEATHBED, Wendy gets dragged off by the sicko to some cabin. She desperately tries to escape to get to see her fiance. You know - the guy she loves and who may be dying because of her?

Nawwwwwwww. Our "Hero" won't let her. Clearly, if you don't have felony rapist characteristics, you simply cannot be a lakorn hero. He ties her up, throws her down, tells her that fiance's parents hate her, and threatens her every five minutes. In all of this he is ably assisted by a friend who seems to think this is bad but not bad enough to stop anything.

At least...there is no raping? Oh, and our generous hero decides he'll let her go. At some point in the unspecified future. Oh, give me five minutes with him, a rusty pair of scissors, a few nails, and boric acid. I could have SUCH FUN.

You know, by lakorn standards this is fairly mild but it's enraging me so - because by being set in Korea it's actually reminding me of kdramas, where the worst thing a hero would do to a woman is force a kiss on her, and get slapped for his trouble. And because Wendy's fiance is actually a decent human being and what I'd consider a normal kdrama hero and Wendy is a normal heroine and to see these fairly normal people stuck in the horribly mysoginistic crap is ARGHARGHARGH.

All I know is if Wendy hooks up with Wannabe Rapist, I am going to find the maker and tattoo 'loser scum' on his forehead. There are indications that Wannabe Rapist is supposed to hook up with younger sister (who has heart trouble, probably from having to be in this story) and I don't wish the scumbag on her either, but if I had to pick, I like her less, I'll sacrifice her to the wolves. Though personally I vote for the half-sisters tag-teaming to make all of Hero's internal organs external. Slowly. And then Wendy can go off and get her fiance to wake up or go off to kick-ass singlehood or find a nice arranged Thai guy for herself to marry or found a school for acrobatic nuns. I don't care. As long as Hero ends up decapitated and she does not end up with him.

SUCH BLISTERING HATE.

Nawwwwwwww. Our "Hero" won't let her. Clearly, if you don't have felony rapist characteristics, you simply cannot be a lakorn hero. He ties her up, throws her down, tells her that fiance's parents hate her, and threatens her every five minutes. In all of this he is ably assisted by a friend who seems to think this is bad but not bad enough to stop anything.

At least...there is no raping? Oh, and our generous hero decides he'll let her go. At some point in the unspecified future. Oh, give me five minutes with him, a rusty pair of scissors, a few nails, and boric acid. I could have SUCH FUN.

You know, by lakorn standards this is fairly mild but it's enraging me so - because by being set in Korea it's actually reminding me of kdramas, where the worst thing a hero would do to a woman is force a kiss on her, and get slapped for his trouble. And because Wendy's fiance is actually a decent human being and what I'd consider a normal kdrama hero and Wendy is a normal heroine and to see these fairly normal people stuck in the horribly mysoginistic crap is ARGHARGHARGH.

All I know is if Wendy hooks up with Wannabe Rapist, I am going to find the maker and tattoo 'loser scum' on his forehead. There are indications that Wannabe Rapist is supposed to hook up with younger sister (who has heart trouble, probably from having to be in this story) and I don't wish the scumbag on her either, but if I had to pick, I like her less, I'll sacrifice her to the wolves. Though personally I vote for the half-sisters tag-teaming to make all of Hero's internal organs external. Slowly. And then Wendy can go off and get her fiance to wake up or go off to kick-ass singlehood or find a nice arranged Thai guy for herself to marry or found a school for acrobatic nuns. I don't care. As long as Hero ends up decapitated and she does not end up with him.

SUCH BLISTERING HATE.

Spent most of the evening reading particularly horrifying passages of Ethel M. Dell's The Bars of Iron (a huge 1916 romantic bestseller) out loud to Mr. Mousie.

Bars features a most unfortunate heroine - an impoverished widow whose child has died, she attracts the love of a younger, gorgeous heir to a Baronetcy. Alas, when Avery and Piers marry, she finds out that Husband n.2 is the one who murdered Husband n.1.

Upon realization of said fact, Wife runs away back to husband's ancestral home to try to collect her wits, only for Husband n.2 break the door of her bedroom down, behave in such a manner that if I didn't know better, I would have assumed this was a horror novel about an abused woman locked in with an ax murderer, and cap the evening of fun and games by raping his pregnant wifey.

Did I mention he's the hero?

We are supposed to feel deeply for his pain as he feels so guilty for killing Husband n1 in a brawl and running away and then falling for a gal only to find out he made her a widow and he can't tell her the truth. The only emotion Husband n2 inspires in me, however, is a strong desire to brain him with a frying pan until his brains leak out his ears.

There is also a saintly dying child who murmurs religious platitudes. Because having a thirteen-year-old girl die painfully from tuberculosis is a good way to get Wife and Husband n.2 in the same house - you have got to be kidding me - I am supposed to care about romantic intrigue between a brainwashed weeping pot and a murdering rapist and not the poor dying child, wtf??? Did I mention that said child was sent to stay with Wifey by child's mother, Wifey's best friend, as a result of Wifey telling her about the rape because that would help them reconcile. Yeah, Mother of the Year she is, sending her teen daughter into a house with a murdering rapist. Awwww.

Also, Husband n.2 is very excited to go off to fight in WW1 and thinks it's the best thing to happen ever and will make men of everyone. I was very excited for him to go off too, because there was a chance he might get blown up or eaten by rats in the trenches.

Alas, no luck. At the end he comes back wounded and they reconcile. Happy end. Cue my barfing.

The only way I got through this is by mocking bits to Mr. Mousie who had to be repeatedly convinced that guy was the hero. We had an interesting discussion as to why those old-time lady novelists had a rape fixation (I shall never get that). I told him he was an awesome husband because he never raped or murdered anyone and he said I had interestingly low standards :P Not according to Ms. Dell.

I consider self taken in - this is the fourth novel of hers I read (I love trashy old books) and this is the first with rape. I thought I lucked out and found a trashy teen-twenties novelist who didn't have that, but no luck.

The prose, however, is so deliciously purple a whole new color palette should be invented for it.

Piers went like an automaton, but he could not utter a word. His mouth felt parched, his tongue powerless.

Avery! Avery! The woman he had wronged--the woman he worshipped so madly--for whom his whole being mental and physical craved desperately, yearning, unceasingly,--without whom he lived in a torture that was never dormant! Avery! Avery! Was she lying dead behind that lighted window? If so, if so, those six months of torment had been in vain. He would end his misery swiftly and finally before it turned his brain.

Maxwell Wyndham was guiding him towards the conservatory where a dim light shone. It was like an altar-flame in the darkness--that place where first their lips had met. The memory of that night went through him like a sword-thrust. Oh, Avery! Oh, Avery!

OK, guys, I hate myself a little - but viikii has Defendant of Love subbed and I found myself starting the first episode. I posted about it before but DoL is a Thai drama - an umpteenth hit adaptation of some really popular novel about how Hero decides to avenge the fact that his brother offed himself over the girl by kidnapping and torturing said girl. Oooops, he accidentally grabs her cousin. Hijinks (and by that I mean rape) ensue. Just - guuuh, just thinking about the plot of this drama gives me rage (apparently raping etc is common in Thai dramas, yikes) but I can't stop - it's like this extremely horrifying trainwreck, you can't stop rubbernecking. I will let you know when I get to the breaking point but for now, I will just hide in shame (btw - I am pleased to see the Heroine prepare for her life of meekness by being a willing slave to her spoiled cousin. Said cousin tells her to use her home ec degree to bake her a cake. LOLOL. I should not like the evil wench but I do). Oh, and right now I am at the part where shirtless and artistically sweaty hero finds the lifeless body of his brother and manpains all over it. Ha!

Share my shame:



You know, I browsed the Thai dramas at viikii and much as I am tempted by the attractive ladies and gents that act in them, I bet I would be a lot more interested if the plots of them did not go like this:

Karnploo (Ann) is dumped and swindled by her long time boyfriend. To cheer her up, her friends take her out for a girls night out and in despair, Karnploo drinks herself silly. At the club, she meets Nit (Mart), a proper man who hates loose and uninhibited woman. When he meets the intoxicated Karnploo for the first time, Nit misunderstands that she is a party girl and an improper woman, the type of woman he hates the most.

That night, the drunken Karnploo is separated from her friends and finds herself in the company of Nit until morning. When she woke to find herself in Nit’s car and he is undressing her, she misunderstands that he raped her. They go to the police station to sort out the matter and Nit insinuates that they did had sex even though they didn’t and threaten if she presses charges she will lose face. Because this is conservative Thailand, she decides to save face rather go through the humiliation of being a person who was raped.

When she goes home, her Aunt is very disappointed and decides to marry her off to Nit’s father. Pissed that his father is marrying a girl with loose morals and possibly a gold-digger, he takes advantage of Karnploo before her wedding day. After the wedding, Karnploo refuses to sleep with Nit’s father because she doesn’t want to commit the sin of sleeping with the son and the father. Because his wife is refusing to sleep with him, Nit’s father seeks comfort with prostitutes and dies of a heartache during one of his appointments.

Now the war begins because Nit’s father divided his inheritance in half for Nit and Karnploo. Also, Karnploo learns she is pregnant with Nit’s child. They battle for the inheritance and develop feelings for each other.


(Plot of Likit Kammathep, one of the dramas uploaded. Just from the description, I want to stab the 'hero' in the face over and over and over).

Though I am wildly tempted by Sassy Love (part of the description of which includes this gem: "After several fated encounters, Nit meets Bowee's mother, who has been staying in an insane asylum, of her own free will, for many years. The bad part is that everyone else thinks she's dead." LOLOL), Roy Leh Sanae Rai (adorable-looking entry into the 'guy tries to swindle girl because his dad left all the inheritance to her instead, but falls in love' subgenre) and Badarn Jai, which sounds like a cross between Which Star Are You From and Full House and promises me a hero who "dons the asian mullet." (I directly quote).

Now, if someone can assure me that none of those three feature any raping, we'll be set.

Reading comments on the Time of India website, relating to an article addressing the scandal of Bollywood actor's Shiney Ahuja being accused of rape by his 18-yr-old maid (the cops have corroborating evidence of sexual assault) is...interesting.

There are reasonable people and then there are people like this:

I think (assume) that being the victim of a false rape accusation is as traumatizing (if not more) as being a victim of rape itself.

***

Shiney attempting to rape his young 18yo maid in the absence of his wife is not such an impossibile situation . Any man is prone to such an eventuality in a moment of weakness.

***

Today the most misused laws are the dowry and rape laws. Even in murder cases, the system of natural justice is used but in these cases, the sole testimony of the prosecutrix is enough to crucify anyone. A day may come, when men will have to take written permission, even from their wives to make love.

***

As to calling the young actor a pervert: take it easy. He allegedly abused his power over a young servant girl when no one else was around, unable to control his sexual urges and consider the negative consequences of forcing himself on a virgin. He is not the only one who indulges in sexual urges like that. Being a handsome Bollywood star he probably didn't expect such a reaction from a servant.

***

A person who only drink Mineral water will drink municipality tap water when he is really thristy and when mineral is not available.

***

Please y would a handsome guy like Shiny rape a maid wen he will have millions of pretty gals falling over each other to get 'raped' by him . And I am sure he is not that type. Therez more to the story then meets the eye.

***

Why everyone is considering the maid as a good character woman. Shiney is a big film star and he will have access to all top class girls and women in the society. On the top of that, Sex is a thing which is widely available in the Market. So, having these many options, Why Shiney will go to a low class un civilized woman. Grow up guys ,,, just think logically.

***

he was so much overwhelmed by sexual emotions that he has taken this step!

Most important why his wife is staying away from him in Delhi? She should have tayed with him so that his emotions would have been in control.

Osho has rightly said one must accept ones sexual needs and only when they are satisfied one tries to think of Nirvana!

Many terrorist born when they have unfullfilled sexual needs!

Any way its good lesson to all wifes who deny sex to their husbands.


***

Since I cannot top that last comment, which implies it's the fault of womankind that terrorists exist, I shall stop.
