Watched ep 11 of BBJX and it was a lovely breather in the melancholy and angst. First off, loved that brief moment with Lu Wu and Thirteen when he brought Four over. The intensity in his eyes! Also, the scene with Fourteen in Mongolian disguise was cute cute cute.

Now, on to the main point: Eight/Ruoxi bloody finally!!!! I loved the horse-riding scene when he rescued her - the way he stared at her as she rode on his lap (ok, sadly that sounds much dirtier than t was :p) mmmmmmm and then literally laughing in joy when he realizes she likes him back. Then the scene in his tent when he is wounded and they hold hands and she hugs him back and chemistry aaaaaaaa! I did giggle when she looked away when he was quasi-shirtless while being treated. Damn, girl, you are not really a Manchu noblewoman, why so shy? I'd be ogling that chest for all I was worth and then tackling him down on that couch for some sexual healing. You are a 21st-century girl, come on, for the sake of all fangirls everywhere you have to do it!!!!

I really do think she is too cautious to commit to someone whose future she knows is no good and who has a bunch of complicated interpersonal relationships already. To compare it with JPLH, she is an observer, not a doer like Qing Chuan was. Hence is the tragedy, observer or not, she can't help but be drawn in.

I am not sure I will have caps from now on btw - I download almost 1gb-sized hard subs already so to also download almost 2-gb raws is kinda insane, OTOH, the Eight/Ruoxi stuff begs to be capped. Dilemmas!!!

In other drama news, I finally started watching Fight and Love with the Teraccotta Warrior properly - viki has it subbed. I am four eps in and I like it but not as much as I thought I would based on the premise (Qin general and royal Concubine relive their doomed love through centuries). I think it's because while I love both Du Chun and Ady An, they have better chemistry with other costars. It's still fun though.

I got to say, I am pretty much rolling in cdramas/hkdramas right now - I am watching BBJX, Terracotta Warrior, Relics of an Emissary, Last One Standing and Four Women Conflict and Vigilantes in Masks. I don't think I will be slowing down much either because the drama that comes after the drama after BBJX is the insane cdrama-goes-lakorn "Sealed with a Kiss" with Hawick Lau and then QSHF, the Ruby/Wallace/YanKuan miseryfest which I am dying for. And the Royal Harem is bound to air soon, plus there is Ruyi and Mystery in the Palace, and Legend of the Tiger Amulet and a bunch of others.

Even though this journal is 90% kdramas, my favorite drama type is actually Mainland period dramas. Nothing is as good as those, nothing as designed to appeal to my tastes. I haven't seen nearly as many of them as I have kdramas, in part because the subs are hard to find, in part because at minimum 30-40 eps, they are a major time committment, and in part because once I find a good one, I tend to hoard (yes, I am still saving Romantic Red Rouge for a rainy day. Sue me).



You know, what I love as much as I do period cdramas? Yang Mi, the gorgeous and charismatic star of Jade Palace Lock Heart (and many other dramas). I have a massive girlcrush on her. Another thing I love? Manpain and romance.

What do you get when you add all of these together? You get the upcoming period cdrama romance Ruyi starring Yang Mi and Hawick Lau.



And do you know the plot? Using fragrant tea plantations as the setting, new drama “Ruyi” is a Republican era piece starring Yang Mi and Hawick Lau. Hawick Lau will play Tan Mingkai, the young master of the Tan clan and the heir to its fortune. The title character, Ruyi (played by Yang Mi), is an ordinary worker on the tea plantations. A secret? Their lives are the result of a switcheroo – Mingkai’s real mother almost died giving birth to him; to save his wife, Mingkai’s birth father (a plantation worker) sold him to be Madam Tan’s son. Family conflict, former best friends become enemies, disaster and calamity…and of course, challenging it all, love. (from cfensi).

Oh God, has this thing been designed especially for me or what? I WANT I WANT I WANT!!!
