Some of you may remember my obsessing over period cdrama Four Women Conflict back in the spring.

I finally had to stop midway through because it was too angsty and overwrought even for me to take in one sitting. I mean it. FWC makes the most overwrought, makjang kdrama seem like a cheery slice-of-life romcom.



But of course, I cannot stay away for long, so I continue my foray in the world of the angstiest, most star-crossed lovers ever, the whole town full of psychos (I literally want everyone in this dead except for Playboy/Heroine) and, especially, Puppy Killer. We cannot forget Puppy Killer!



Also, I'd say that this drama gives me the worst, miserable wedding ever (courtesy of the psycho mom of Playboy) but that is not true because the winner for that title is heroine's first wedding. At least she is not married off against her will to a disgusting abuser who sells her off to a rapist on the wedding night.

Yeah, it's that type of cheery drama.

What I really want is for the heroine to snap and go on a murderous rampage through the town. I am sure Playboy will help.

Am on ep 12 of Schemes of a Beauty and predominant emotion is WANTING TO STAB THE HEROINE IN THE FACE OVER AND OVER!!!!!

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.

The idea of a party in the misbegotten town Lanyan lives in seems to be going to see a public hanging of Lanyan for murder while throwing things at her. WTF. The glee is exceptional because she dared to break the whole "he abuses you but you keep mum" thing so in punishing her, they are restoring natural order. Barf.

Playboy, who must have a deathwish the breadth of the Nile, has meanwhile escaped his household's protective custody and is off to find her and, when he finds her being marched to her execution, insists if she's getting executed, he should be executed too ("Dead or alive, I'll share everything with you. I won't leave you." Ahhhhh, swoooooooon). And then he starts yelling he's the one who killed Lanyan's husband. Oh, you crazy crazy awesome darling. ILY. You clearly are some sort of a genetic aberration in this area though, or maybe a mutation, because you actually act like a Y-chromosome possessor I do not want to strangle - the sole one in this place of lunacy.

And then they both get beaten up by the crowd which doesn't seem to want to wait for the proper hanging.

Seriously, this town is the pits. I want to take the OTP and move them about 2000mi away.

Oh, and I sort of forgive Childhood Love (though I don't want him with Lanyan in a million years) because he was investigating the murder in hopes of clearing her. You are useful for something, after all. He finds out they didn't do it in the nick of time.

It turns out the real murderer was...ta-dun...puppy killer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For once, I don't blame her because Lanyan psycho hubby tried to rape her.

I am glad he's dead. Buhbye psycho! You actually made me root for puppy killer.

ETA: They accidentally convicted heroine best friend's brother (try saying that ten times fast) for murder instead and killed him. Puppy killer had a good time framing him. Well, that should put a spoke in Childhood Love/Best Friend courtship. A pity, as that pair of sanctimonious pigs fit each other like a pair of gloves.

ETA2: And now they are sending Lanyan to a nunnery (!!!!) because they are afraid it will look bad if they release her and she marries Playboy. WTF! I mean, if both of them are innocent, and she's a widow now, who the hell cares? When Playboy dares to protest both her punishment and his feelings, everyone is horrified as if he's just contracted the plague and Childhood Love, fast losing the meagre points he gained by his investigation, hits him while Playboy is tied up (very honorable of him) because Childhood Love is feeling inadequate in the face of someone actually openly showing love. As well he should, as Childhood Love and every other male in this hellhole, wouldn't know what it is to love a woman if their grimy obnoxious lives depended on it. This town really is in purgatory.

I am beginning to think Playboy got his irresistible reputation and got into so many women's pants simply because he treated them as human beings.




Heroine: "Yun [childhood love] has left me. And I don't love my husband. I don't know what I should live for. I just want to end my life."
Playboy: "Live for yourself."

This. Frelling THIS.

And then he tells her by her logic he should be offing himself too because she doesn't love him, but he's very much still here and she can do it too. And he tells her she should treasure every day in her life because even if her childhood love doesn't love her, in the future she can meet someone she will love who will love and protect her, and if she doesn't love her husband, she can make money and repay the bride price and leave. It is all possible as long as she's alive.

Playboy, I just might be in love with you.

The scene where scumbag Yun just ditched her (because her abusive husband begged him, barf) and she runs out and sees Playboy there and asks him to take her away, and he does - and takes her somewhere peaceful and beautiful and keeps his hands to himself and then tells her the above - all about her wants and needs and (to use a college term) self-actualization as opposed to trying to force his love on her in psycho fashion or alternatively tell her about wifely duty like a prig? Seriously. I literally started clapping. I totally love him now. He's the only man in this whole benighted town she lives in that I do not want to murder because he's the only one who (a) treats her as a human being with thoughts, wishes and will of her own (b) actually listens to what she says (c) puts what she wants above what he wants (d) motivates her to live her life for her own benefit, above all, and that doesn't have to include him unless she decides it does.

Scene in question )

And that totally brings her back from despair and she makes plan for how she can work and repay the bride price and she makes a wish in the temple (?) and she's back to herself. YES.

Though Puppy Killer just returned to the scene and this can't be anything good. Lady, why don't you go after Playboy's two wives - presumably he's had sex with them at some point, and I don't think he's even got as far as holding hands with the heroine. Yes, arranged wives v. luuuuurve but still - priorites! Not to mention that trashing the business of the woman he loves as a way to see your ex (because he's going to rush to check on her) is really not a productive route to rekindle your relationship.

ETA: Bwahahahha, Puppy Killer, I kinda love you and your crazy. When Playboy tells her for the umpteenth time that he is sorry but he only loves heroine and he won't be Puppy Killer's lover because it would be a betrayal (which makes me wonder - if he won't have sex with sexy exie in order to be true to his OTP, does it mean he's not sexing up his wives either? It seems so. No wonder they don't have a baby yet), Puppy Killer tells him fine, but before they part, can he hug her. So he hugs her and she arranges for the heroine to walk in at the same time. Puppy Killer, there is a kdrama waiting for you somewhere! No wonder Playboy tells her she's insane.
