1. A little squee about ep 10 of 49 Days )

2. I continue to be obsessed with K.O. 3an Guo. It's hilarious but also knows how to tug at me. Also, my crush on Guan Yu is sort of insane now. I basically ship him with Diao Chan because I think the boy should have everything he wants, though my interest in Diao Chan herself is pretty much nil. She's tough in her own quiet way, but compared to Xiao Qiao or the recently appearing Shang Xiang (who is all sorts of magnificent), she sort of fades into the background.

Caps caps caps )

3. A quick bit about New Tales of the Gisaeng.

A few caps and thoughts here )

4. So, Romantic Red Rouge.

Here here here here )

5. So yes, I had these Jade Palace Lock Heart caps forever. I confess I haven't finished the drama yet, for the oddest reason. I am hoarding - I don't want it to end!

Some caps and thoughts )

6. So, more Legend of the Condor Heroes here here here here here )

7. I've only been able to watch the tragic parts of Young Warriors of the Yang Clan sporadically because - tragic. But this scene just might be one of my favorites, because I am in awe of Six's ability to forgive and his grace to PM's awful daughter. He's is amazing - under these circumstances, with his family dead, with her trying to kill his soldiers and trying to force him to kill his OTP. He can still forgive and find good in her.

Scene here )

8. So, Doctor Who first ep of new season. Quick thought )

Sexy Butler used to be a teacher/professor/similar - that is how youngest daughter in the family knows him. And she asks him why on earth he's now working for their family which is a big step down. Hmmmm. Combined with his off-handedly asking about dead oldest son's wife (the one who was branded on the face by her father in the prologue and sent to the Gu house), I am beginning to think he gave up his career and entered the Gu family as a servant to find out about her. Is he her lover? Her brother? This being a drama, perhaps both? :P Hmmmm. Meanwhile, I continue to believe it's not right to be so gorgeous. If he was teaching in my school, I'd definitely be hot for teacher:



Also, loved this scene because FBB's character is fierce - when evil sis-in-law was basically having sexy butler beaten to death to have FBB to confess to adultery, FBB basically told her (a) fuck off (b) signed 'confession' where she says she was coerced (c) told her if she didn't stop the beating right now, she was going to kill herself and how was evil s-i-l was going to explain a corpse on their best carpet to mother (d) actually attempted to stab self.




Of course she wins. Ah, she's so fierce and smart and awesome and utterly without fear. I sort of want a cross-over between RRR and FWC - she could probably single-handedly murder all the awful men and women of FWC. I want to see her take on Puppy Killer.

See you all after my surgery :)

Evil sister-in-law just locked up heroine and sexy butler in the steam room (sadly for steaming bamboo, not bathing - I demand nudity!) together, in order to get heroine framed for adultery and thrown out of the family. And turned the steam way up so they'd be tempted to take off their clothes. ROFL. Perhaps she's a Wallace Huo fangirl? Anyway, all I could think of is "take advantage of the locked doors, and jump him, girl!" Saaaaaad. I am a sad case. But instead they rescue themselves.



Also, heroine has been married for a while but her husband hasn't shown up yet. He didn't even bother coming for the wedding and they had to use sexy butler as a stand-in (talk about bait-and-switch!). That man sounds repellent already.

Heroine of this, though, is totally tough and awesome and sort of like a period Makino. Nothing is going to get her down and clearly she is bound to grind evil sis-in-law into dust at some point. Woooo!

Some pretty shippy caps )

ETA: Clearly, the laurels of Four Women Conflict is giving RRR no peace because now they are being questioned by evil sis-in-law and she orders sexy butler beaten. Lady, don't you know he's a Taoist warrior Priest par excellence and can destroy your whole house? :P Also, this is generally most idiotic plan ever because heroine hasn't yet consummated marriage with deadbeat husband and obviously has not been sexing up sexy butler (darn!) so it's easy enough to check she's a virgin.

OK, why don't I have any Wallace Huo icons, really?

I have just started Romantic Red Rouge, also known as Red Snow, a period cdrama starring Mousie favorites Fan Bing Bing and Wallace Huo (hello, paging [livejournal.com profile] kitkat_cat!). FBB plays a woman married against her will into a rich, secretive family who falls in love with Wallace Huo who works for the family for some mysterious reasons of his own. I believe they shall be mandated to have pretty babies for the sake of all humanity.

I am barely five minutes in and I am totally in love! It's so pretty and interesting and *turns fangirl mode on* it has the best first OTP meeting ever!






Yup, he's on the river when she suddenly pops out of the water. She is running away from her arranged marriage and he's the one who accidentally prevents her. Eeeeee! You dug your own angst pit, boy!

Also, the more I watch period dramas, the more I am happy to be in the now. The drama opens (six months before the story proper starts) with some woman who's about to be married when her husband keels over right before the wedding. So her father says she'll now be known as a curse and her best hope for a virtuous life is to be forever chaste, living in her to-be husband's house and to assure that outcome he brands her on the face, so she'll be disfigured and nobody would want her. WTF!!!

ETA: For all those annoyed by my occasionally excessive posting, relief is on the way. I am having surgery tomorrow so posting will probably be a bit sparce for a few days and you guys get a break.
