I have been feeling rather out-of-sorts today, I confess, physically and emotionally. One of those days.



But now I am smiling and relaxed and even a bit giddy.

The reason? Delicious, guilty pleasure, mushy delight that is a Taiwanese anthology drama Say Yes Enterprise, starring basically half my favorite Taiwanese actors: Barbie Hsu, Hebe, Mike He. Lee Wei, Vanness Wu, Blue Lan etc etc.



SYE is 40 episodes, but never fear! It is great for someone like me, with a short attention span, as it tells 7 separate stories, around 4-5 eps per story. Which enables them to cram all the Asian drama cliches into a perfect smorgasbord: you want a rich young executive and a feisty street dancer overcoming the odds (Vanness and Hebe)? You got it! You want an older woman falling in love with her son's classmate (Lee Wei and Mike He are in it)? You got it! You want a story of angsty lost love (then real-life couple Barbie Hsu and Blue Lan, who was so awesome in The Outsiders)? Once again -- yup. Or a story about a guy finding out his first love is now a mobster's whore and trying to save her? Jackpot again. Etc etc.

It's not the kind of drama you need subs for, honest, but someone at d-addicts has started subbing it and has first three eps out.

In order to convince you, here is a kiss scene from story 1, the one about an executive and street dancer. I love my Cinderella tales! I would love for a sexy and a bit angsty young executive to fall madly for me and lift me from life of street poverty. I am lazy that way.



Smoochies FTW! Plus, Vanness/Hebe? Odd combo but works really well.



Hint, they do a lot of kissing!

More kissing )

Mmmm...I have no shame. I cannot wait to watch the Lee Wei one. YUM!

MV for forbidden younger man lurve )

In other news, I am feeling like a gigantic jdrama kick! I got my hands on about a dozen and will sample and see which one I want to watch. My money is on My Boss My Hero: it seems hilarious AND stars Nagase Tomoya. But first, to finish Kouri No Sekai (Ice World). Also, while I am at it: jdramas, take a hint from twdramas and do real kissing, please!

Full House OMG. ep 8 babbling )

After seeing the following MVs for 1 Litre of Tears MVs behind cut ) I cannot wait to see the dorama. But even the first MV made me cry. I think this one might overload my angst capacity. OMG. Can't wait.

Discovering doramas is as giddy as discovering Bollywood was three or four years back. There is the whole other world out there and so many things to watch.

Of course, this also means that my watching list is about a mile long and like a person with too many cool things around her, I cannot decide what to watch first and end up watching more than one dorama at a time and still running around with 'this one or this one or this one.' I know I should impose some kind of order, but even if I just finished the ones I am currently watching, I'd need to have some kind of order. It's overwhelming and great.

And new 'must watch this second' doramas get added to the list every day.

My watchlist ramblings )

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Cinderella lost her parents when she was young. And she was tortured by the jerk Lee Young-Jae. (Han Ji-Eun's reimagining of Cinderella in Full House).
