Ahhhh, drama, how ridiculously do you spoil me? Now that it's more than halfway over, it's pretty clear Sungkyunkwan Scandal is by far my favorite drama this year except for Chuno. And ep 12 was the best yet.

Why are you so perfect, drama?

Caps and thoughts. Pretty long )

Not related to anything above, but I think I will finally finish the Russian telenovela Bednaya Nastya. It's really long (close to 130 eps) and I spaced out somewhere on ep 80. But I feel in the mood. Ahhhhh, Vladimir/Anna, I used to be so obsessed with them.



This soundtrack vid even has occasionally OK English subs.

I didn't understand why people loathed Olga at BN boards. But now I do.

STAB.

STAB.

Serioiusly, she is causing problems for Vladimir AND Anna AND Alexander AND Natalie AND everyone I love in it.

Also, Alexander 'The Liberator' II is totally HOT.

I think I have decided to watch Ne rodis krasivoy ('Don't be born beautiful'), a Russian version of the same telenovela 'Ugly Betty' is based on (did I mention that we saw posters for UB all over Buenos Aires with the slogan 'in English, it is more ugly.' :P)

Best friend got hooked on it, and we usually have very similar tastes. Plus, she sold me by saying this serial has a version of my very favorite scene ever. You know that scene where I went all flaily/incoherent in Delightful Girl Chun-Hyang, where Mong-Ryong thought Chun-Hyang didn't love him and was all in despair, but found her diary and realized she loves him and she rejected him for his sake, and went to find her? NRK has this too!!!!!

Here is a MV. EEEEEEEE! Looks so neat. And the male lead wears glasses which is just...guys in glasses are HOT. When they are kissing and both are in glasses? SQUEEEEE! I like the way she looks. And I think he is totally hot, in a rumpled intellectual kinda way. (Also, what is with all the recent hot Russian actors? What happened? When I was living in the USSR, there weren't that many and now they seem to be proliferating). I have my next crush.




A few more vids )

In other news, I am almost done with Lovers. Three eps left. God, they finally got together and they are so compatible, so alive together, so perfect. When they spent the whole night sitting together on the floor of their hotel room. Or when she is cold on a mountain and he gives her his coat and is all 'it's weird you look so good in men's clothes' and she plays hwith his wallet. OMG. And then they both give to their exes everything they ever gave them back. Which on her part includes the cell-phone and LSJ freaks out something is wrong with her because she isn't picking up the phone, and runs over there and finds out why. And EEEEEE! His quiet delight she did that and her quiet delight he was worried.

I adore them so much.

YES!

72 episodes in, and Anna finally admitted she loves Vladimir back. Well, she didn’t say ILY, but I think when the lady in question:

a. tells the guy things like ‘The most important thing is I am home [his, btw]. And you are near.’
b. Continues by staring at him with her anime eyes, touching his cheek and repeating things like ‘I have never felt so good, never’ when he is sitting up there, a few inches away and is staring at her.
c. There is prolonged kissing

I consider her at least mildly interested :D

So, basically, it’s clear if you are hot and angsty and rescue the heroine repeatedly, she will love you back :D

Of course, in order to get to that point, Anna had proven that she has no brains at all*, but hey, I don’t think Vladimir loves her for her mind :D

rambling on heroine's dimness and other things )

Ooooh, and here is the vid of the scene, with my translations.



Translations behind cut )

Of course, seeing that there are almost 50 eps left, I can only wait in giddy anticipation what kind of angst they will get to keep them apart for the duration :D

Not related to anything above, but this video of hot-dog eating contest between Kobayashi, a Japanese hotdog champion, and a bear, is something that can make anyone's year!

Somehow, 68 episodes (!!!) in, I have fallen hard for Crown Prince Alexander in Bednaya Nastya. I liked him a lot, before, but somehow, during the whole 'trapped in dangerous cellar with Marie and very ill Konstantin,' I fell for him like a ton of bricks: he is just so awesome to his little brother, and so anxious for him to be OK, and joking to cheer him up, and trying to get them out of it, and gets hurt really badly, but still manages to 'keep up spirit' so his little brother won't be frightened. OMG.

Also, Marie is so awesome, and I think I totally switched ships from Alexander/Natalie to Alexander/Marie. She is so sweet and caring and fun, and she loves him so helplessly. And he is always kind and nice to her, but no more. I adore Natalie, and the two of them together (she is the only one who can keep up with him, in fun and in anger) but it's impossible: Natalie hasn't even admitted her feelings for him to herself, for starts! And she seems so determined to marry her weasely spineless fiance.* But heh, is shipping Alexander/Marie RPShipping? *shudder* I guess the very awesome, yet totally inapproacheable men are such a fictional catnip. See Xi Men/Xiao You from Meteor Garden. Heck, Ten/Rose?

*who meanwhile got his serf Tatiana pregnant. I feel horrible for Tatiana. She can't help but hope he won't marry Natalie, now she is preggers, even if she knows it's ridiculous. Oh, you poor poor thing. There is room for only one fairy tale in this story, and it's Anna's.

Oh, and Vladimir continues to be his awesome self, snarking at Olga (who is super annoying) and writing the mushiest letters to Anna, which he then tears up and doesn't send. Though, listen hero, Vladimir. I realize that it's been some time since you've seen the inside of a jail cell, so you are missing your natural habitat. You know you show at your best advantage when angsting. Plus, you really miss Anna, and taking Olga to St. Petersburg is a perfect excuse to do 'I am not here for you' thing with Anna. But. Taking the Crown Prince's ex-mistress, who got kicked out to Poland by Tsar and Tsarina themselves? Not the brightest idea ever. OK?

I couldn't find a Marie/Alexander video, but there are tons of Alexander/Natalie ones. Since I adore that ship and am only pulling away because it's doomed, here is a vid I adore:



Am I bipolar? A few minutes after thinking Marie/Alexander could be cool, and adoring Marie, I am all 'maybe a few years later, Natalie will change her mind?' Multi-shipping. Most confusing.

ETA: Seriously, I bet part of the reason they chose to set this in this time period, is they wanted to have a royal family storyline in there, and if you look for an admired Tsar, it's pretty slim pickings. It'a basically Alexander and...what Peter the Great? [livejournal.com profile] fire_snake will undoubtedly correct me :)

ETA2: Heh. Vladimir's aunt performed euthanasia on his terminally ill mother? EEEEE. And he hates her and thinks she did it because she wanted his Daddy...

OK, I can't help it.

It's the cheesiest song ever, for this vid, but it's incredibly appropriate, seeing that the MV is for the cheesiest thing ever, in itself: Russian telenovela Bednaya Nastya.



It has no redeeming intellectual value (though it really brings my Russian back even fresher, which makes it my default language, which creates a minor problem :P) but it's so irresistable.

You might remember me going crazy over Baron Vladimir Korf the telenovela, a few months back. I got about halfway back, and got sidetracked. But I restarted. Heeee. Vladimir is just as noble and sarcastic and clueless about women as ever. And Anna is just as busty and pushy and bird-witted-thus-requiring regular-rescuing. YES.

(For those who just tuned in, BN is a 120ep Russian serial set in 1830s Russia, with our heroine Anna a serf actress, and sexy Vladimir her noble OTP. There are evil families, politics, murder plots, and cool costumes).

OMG!

I have a new favorite Bednaya Nastya scene. Seriously, I was literally making squealing noises at the TV. Good thing no one was around but the sexiness and the chemistry was EEEEEEE.

I have to admit, much as I currently hate Michael (he went from indifference to cold loathing, because of the way he treated Anna after finding out she went to Vladimir's bedroom, even if it was to save Michael. I love the scene afterwards, when Vladimir finds out about their break-up and tries to convince Michael Anna loves him, because he, unlike Michael, is grown-up).

But as I was saying, much as I hate Michael, I am immensely amused by the fact that Anna is hardly acting like a woman who lost her love. Though I don't know, maybe it's a normal reaction to engage in teasing flirtation with Vladimir and be all glowy. You tell me.

Anyway, here is the youtube scene (and my translations) of my new favorite. He is talking to her after finding out about the break-up (and he definitely knows that there is something to seize on, because she didn't tell him of it) and the mutual flirtiness and grinniness is INSANE. And the almost kiss? *dead*
