Seeing that I gritted my teeth through most of ep 7 with extreme fast-forwarding, motivated by a bizarre sense of duty, I think it's time to call it quits.

The fish-out-of-water humor is gone and nothing I like replaced it. I find family and business and whose-mother-is-that entirely tedious (the mother mess is likely what was the final strike), the teletubbies somehow got dull, and even the only two characters I previously liked - the leads - are now boring me. Plus, I have to face that while Yoochun and HJM had plenty of chemistry with costars elsewhere, there is close to nada here.

Oh well, Queen Inhyun's Man is about to start so maybe I will have a time-travel replacement.

Apparently, while both Rooftop Prince and King 2 Hearts preempted their episodes yesterday due to election (The Equator Man kept its normal schedule), only K2H is showing double the eps today. RP is only showing ep 7 because ep 8 is not yet ready (they are filming this close to the air date? Already?! Not good). So just FYI.

I confess that I am fine with it. If the situation was reversed and K2H was the one which only had one ep, I'd be tearing out my hair, but while I like RP, it doesn't ignite any passionate attachment in me so...eh.

Have a K2H MV from AyaChan. She used to make amazing City Hunter MVs and I am glad to see she's just as good now:

Just look at this gorgeous poster for Queen In Hyun's Man which is set to air in less than two weeks (the title makes me think of an odd mix between Queen In Soo and Princess' Man :P) With every promo teaser and artwork, my interest in this gets bigger and bigger. The fact that this is on tvN, a network that has so far done some amazing dramas, and that is has the unusual premise in which our hero, a Joseon scholar, travels back and forth in time, and I am rabid.

Time travel seems the theme du jour in kdramas this year (I wonder if the recent Mainland time travel successes like Bu Bu Jing Xin and Gong had anything to do with it). We have four this year, which brings the amount of time-travel kdramas in the totality of kdrama existence to five. Yes, this year alone, we have four times as many time-travel kdramas as we did in all the years before. In addition to Queen In Hyun's Man, we have Rooftop Prince, which is currently airing (and is adorable and fluffy if not particularly memorable), and the upcoming Timeslip Doctor Jin, which is based on the same manga that brought us the amazing jdrama JIN (I am curious but iffy about this one because the original was so steeped in Japanese history, they will have to drastically redo it. Not to mention that I love Song Seung Heon, but a great actor he is not, unlike Osawa Takao, who played the role in the jdrama) and Faith, about a female doctor who travels to Gogureyo, which I am preobsessed about because it's written by the writer of Eyes of Dawn, Sandglass, Legend, Slingshot and What's Up (i.e., she who can do no wrong) and directed by her frequent collaborator who directed EoD, Sandglass and Legend). Plus, it stars Lee Min Ho as a warrior (in his first sageuk RAWRRRRR) and Kim Hee Sun as the doctor (I like her and, even though as a rule am not fond of noona romances, it makes perfect sense here as a doctor is unlikely to be 22 and back in the past, people matured and advanced up the war ladder quicker because short lifespan).

I confess my interest in Rooftop Prince is beginning to wane. I am currently managing to keep up with 4 airing dramas (all three W/Th dramas and Love Rain) but I am about to add Hero to the list and try to catch up on God of War and if I will find that I need to drop one, RP will probably be the one. It's a cute, sweet drama but it's darling fluff and I am constitutionally unable to be fully invested in a fluffy drama to the extent I prefer other kinds.

This said, the sequence at the end of ep 5 was adorable.

Sequence in question )

Also, Yoochun looks about 200x hotter with that modern haircut and a smile (though he looked fine in Joseon garb) and I am excited Park Ha finally remembered the truth about Sena. Now if only she conveys said truth to Princey.

Episodes 5 and 6 of TEM gave me shivers. This drama's cat-and-mouse game is more overt than that of Mawang but not any less tense, smart and satisfying. Jang Il is such an utter black hole of moral failure. I'd almost say that his being the way he is would be sufficient punishment, except the hell that he plunged Sun Woo into deserves a more bloody repayment.




Luckily Sun Woo agrees with me. The scene above was perfect. I love that he remembers every bit of what happened but is pretending not to - his cat and mouse with Jang Il keeps me on the edge of my seat (JI, btw, still clearly manifests that he'd have no second thoughts about committing another murder if he had to. In trying to kill Sun Woo, he also killed any hope of a worthy future for himself).



Ji Wan and Sun Woo are the sole ray of sunshine in the story and I ship them in part because of that, but also because I know how much it would devastate Jang Il. In your face, soulless psycho!

I have some caps from ep 4 of Rooftop Prince (but still not much meta because this is a darling piece of fluff).

Some pretty pretty caps )

In the unlikely event you missed it, here is the preview for ep 5 of K2H with subs. Is it Wednesday yet? I need this in my life!



I do wonder how they end up engaged? Cannot wait to find out!

Also, seeing HJW is making me nostalgic for Secret Garden, one of my favorite dramas, so have this gorgeous MV.

RP continues to be a breezy, hilarious delight (which, nonetheless, knows when to go for the emotional jugular - that last scene, ouch!). It's not a particularly meta-able drama, but it gives me a couple of hours of pleasure each week.

Yoochun continues to rock his role and is, by turns, funny and oddly vulnerable (I love that he fit so well into his society and was so sure and alpha but now he's utterly befuddled and often cowed by tiny tiny Han Ji Min). His chemistry with HJM continues great (the scenes at the fair were to die for).

My one problem is the bad guys. About the most exciting thing I can say about them is that Tae Mu is kinda hot for a murderer. I don't mind hissable villains but I do mind when they are dull. Of course, if you remove the chaebol family plot, then this drama would be a pure sitcom like a much much MUCH better version of Vampire Idol, so I suppose that's OK.

Anyway, it's adorable, it made me laugh repeatedly, I got misty-eyed a time or two, and it's fully subbed on viki. What's not to love?

Every time Yoochun addresses Han Ji Min as "You Evil Thing" and treats her like some sort of a powerful demon while acting in haugty royal fashion, while she looks at him as if he is a lunatic and is utterly unimpressed, I die inside. From laughter and joy.

Also, modern world shock is hilarious.

And I realized why he doesn't recognize HJM - he only saw her past self with a veil so he has no idea what her face looks like!

Marry me, drama!!!

Ep 1 was nice. Ep 2 is brilliant.
