As you can probably tell by now, SoaB and I are not working out. But if there is one thing I loved unqualifiedly about it, it was Feng Shao Feng and Myolie Wu as Liu Zhang and Lu Yu - their story was everything I love in dramas and I ended up wishing the drama was about them entirely. I loved their story and their characters and their chemistry. Once their story ended, it's like all the colors went back to faded and my interest plummeted.



It's like they were acting in another drama altogether. That drama being like too many delicious kdrama romcoms or period romance novels, only set in the beginning of Han Dynasty.

You remind me of my mother. In drama terms, this is a declaration of love, pretty much )

To be continued in Part 2, in which more misunderstandings occur, the old favorite of "hurt him to save him" situation arises, and Mousie's favorite scene occurs. It involves a fish market, a red carpet, and a certain hot aristocrat walking on his knees and begging forgiveness.

Am working on insanely long, cappy, and detailed post on Feng Shao Feng/Myolie Wu's characters in SoaB. God, how I loved them. But now their storyline is done and the only thing keeping me going is assassin/general. Speaking of, mmmmm:



Even more mmmm:



Oh, why couldn't the drama be about FSF and Myolie or Yang Mi and Mikey He? Watching them, OTOH, only throws into sharp contrast how little the rest of the drama is working for me - I need characters I can love and root for. If I have those, I can get through a really flawed drama happily but if not, no matter what else the drama has, it won't work for me. And SoaB, though objectively having a better screenplay than e.g. Four Women Conflict, doesn't work for me because I loathe the protagonist and her husband.

blah blah blah rant )

Anyway, FSF/Myolie will get their own post, but for now, here is epicness of assassin/spy in the most epic scene that ever epiced. Basically, his army is surrounded and they are all about to die, and assassin breaks through to them to fight and die with them (or more specifically, with general) and in process reveals her mad kungfu:




And then there is angst and staring:



And then he makes her leave to save her life. Despite some really tempting temptations:




Oh my God, at this rate you will die of old age before you get together!

I continue to be bemused how Yu Zheng managed to write two such amazing secondary OTPs and such an awful main one.

Fair warning - once Yang Mi/Mikey He is done, I am dropping this drama, on the off-chance you care about the fact.

They are the sole thing that keeps me watching now.

Am on ep 12 of Schemes of a Beauty and predominant emotion is WANTING TO STAB THE HEROINE IN THE FACE OVER AND OVER!!!!!

Let's see - I don't give a bleeping bleep if you want to spy for Empress Dowager, the way you were supposed to, or instead to become a genuine supporter of your hubby. That's between you and your conscience.

But how about this? You and your husband are meeting some barbarian to buy his horses and the disgusting-looking barbarian about whom you know zip is all "ooooh, I like Mainland girls. Your servant is hot, can I have her?" The servant in question is supposedly a friend of yours, not to mention a human being. Is your reaction "no, I don't know this guy, should I get my friend's input?" or even "this sucks but husband really really needs these horses. I'll ask her as a favor." As if. No, your reaction is "ooooh, goody, the watch their women closely, so I won't have to worry about her reporting to our employer I'm remiss in spying."

Fuck you and your supposedly moral high horse, bitch! You are going to gleefully give away your supposed friend to a disgusting barbarian into sexual slavery, to make your life a smidge easier?

Ugh, die die die die die pig. The thing that drives me most nuts is that we are supposed to view the heroine as kind and root for her and we are not supposed to find this utterly disgusting and appalling. I don't have a problem with Empress Dowager doing this and much worse because she doesn't view herself as nice and neither does the maker. But we are supposed to view the heroine as a positive character - in what universe? She's a despicable, selfish pig and what drives me nuts is that show doesn't share my view. This is the 'best friend' for whom assassin is willing to die? I bet you wouldn't be willing to die so fast if you knew she was going to sell you off like a pair of old shoes. That's what drives me crazy - everyone lurves and is devoted to heroine but they shouldn't be - she's betraying her best friend who is super-loyal, she's spying on her husband who loves her etc. She's scum and I want her dead.

I have a major weird relationship with this drama. I am interested in and/or like secondaries but I cannot stand the heroine one bit. Die die die die please.

ETA: Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat???? You gave her some slow poison so she won't be able to fight off the 'husband' on her wedding night, get raped and be stuck there forever? She was going to kill him and run away back to Empress Dowager so she wasn't going to be a threat to you anyway, you frelling frelling rape-enabling bitch, I hope you roast in hell.

ETA2: Bwahahahahahahahah in your face, bitch! General went a little nuts and went and rescued Lady Assassin. I just love the reaction of the Bitch (sorry, that is how I am referring to heroine from now on - she's literally the most loathsome drama protagonist I've ever seen). "Oh no, all my hard work will go to waste!" I weep for you - I mean, the man foiled your lovely plan to have lady assassin raped, poor you! Just die, you fucking pig. I am seriously blind with rage. I am this close to dumping this drama because much as I dig Lady Assassin/General, like some other characters, enjoy the plotting, and am waiting for FSF/Myolie, I can't even look at the heroine without getting murderous and she's always on screen. I'll try to get through a couple more eps but I don't know, I am hanging by my fingernails here. If I could have a cut of just Yang Mi/Mikey He scenes, I'd just watch them and never look back.

OK, am on ep 11 of Schemes of a Beauty and find myself in an odd position of enjoying the drama without being emotionally invested.

Probably because I dislike every female character in this because they are all duplicitous, scheming, power-hungry, and use people in their lives and the male characters aren't prominent enough to compensate (and plenty of them are schemers too).

I mean, I can't really ship an OTP if one half of it is using the other to further her spying schmes, specially since they are spies for Devil Incarnate (speaking of, I am confused what happened to Empress Lu's son. She killed the impostor and said Empy was dead but what did the real Emperor do?). Seriously. Just no. Though that doesn't mitigate my desire to stab heroine's husband in the eye. Sure, you guys have a fight and you are mad at her because you think she used you, so without giving her a chance to explain you send her to a Buddhist monastery for a while? Frell you. It's one thing if he knew she was a spy but he doesn't. ETA: oh, it was a ruse to protect her on his part. OK, then.

Blah, they should all drown, except assassin/general even though assassin is using him so I am currently not too keen on her either.

I like this less than JPLH or FWC because it doesn't have any characters I truly root for.

Yes, the subject line refers to Schemes of a Beauty. More specifically, the conversation Lady Assassin/General have in ep 8, where she tells him that when he was binding her wound he saw her breasts and in her culture it means she's now his wife.

Bwuh??????????? Guys who go to hookers must then have a lot of wives.

Also, she uses the fact that he doesn't immediately jump to marry her as proof that despite his "to me, all lives are important" he still cares about status. Once again, bwuh? I think (a) he doesn't know you at all and I am sure that is giving him as much pause as any status issue (b) it's not as if he stipped you to leer at you. Plus he had no idea of your weird customs (c) caring about lives is still not the same as seeing everyone as good enough to be your spouse. I care about the crazy homeless guy at the corner in the sense of not wanting him dead and wanting him to have food and a place to live, doesn't mean I want to marry him.

Anyway, as you can tell, I am working my way through SoaB.

I admit I am not too interested in the main character - she's too perfect in her scheming (for evil Dowager Empress, no less, boo!!!) and not damaged enough. Plus, is it me or does she look older than her supposed OTP? (Which is fine, but a bit odd for a period drama).

But I continue to ship assassin/general rabidly. Now, talk about a tough yet messed-up heroine and hot OTP. Both times they met involved swords and wounds, too. And she's using/manipulating him only she's starting to fall for him. Mmmmmm. I sort of want to have a cut with just their scenes. As it is, I skip to them.

I have NO idea what Yu Zheng mixes into his dramas because I am bleary-eyed and exhausted and am on episode 6 of Schemes of Beauty and cannot stop. Send help! Or don't, because I am not giving up my laptop without a fight.

Here, have a pic of enemy general in question to distract you:



SoaB is set at the beginning of the Han Empire - in fact, the big villain is the Dowager Emperess, i.e. Lu Zhi - you might remember her from The Myth :P The main character, played by Ruby Lin, is a servant who Dowager Empress marries off to a prince from a different kingdom to have her spy on him but instead she helps him fool the empress and achieve greatness. It doesn't hurt that he's hot and practices his kung-fu sitting on ice blocks. Mmmmmm.

But, currently, my OTP is not yet them (they haven't met yet) but characters played by Yang Mi and Mikey He. AAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! It's like YZ knew what I wanted in a ship!



I mean! She a skilled, sword-wielding assassin who works for the evil empress dowager and doesn't believe in goodness! He's a general from the enemy kingdom who works against evil empress dowager. When they first meet, they duel to the death, down cliffs! I ship them so hard it hurts.

Have a MV:



Anyway, less posting, more watching! Adieu!

I managed to watch part of first ep on viki but the rest of the links seem dead!!!!!!

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

It looked so good! And has period costumes! And Ruby Lin! And Mikey He/Yang Mi! And Feng Shao Feng as a sexy general!

Whhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I suppose there is a slim chance they will release an official DVD with subs (they did for FWC) but if they haven't by now, they probably won't.

I managed to watch part of first ep on viki but the rest of the links seem dead!!!!!!

It looked so good! And has period costumes! And Ruby Lin! And Mikey He/Yang Mi! And Feng Shao Feng as a sexy general!

Whhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I suppose there is a slim chance they will release an official DVD with subs (they did for FWC) but if they haven't by now, they probably won't.
