1. The awesome [livejournal.com profile] mookiehyun linked me to this 'action' teaser for Chu-Han Contention. Ahhhhhh! That is what I think of when I think of Chu-Han Contention, not Ming Dao and Joey Chen making romcom goo-goo eyes at each other as the most uncanon couple in history (no, I am not appalled at the Yong Zheng drama, why do you ask?). But then this is from the people who made Three Kingdoms, so they know their way around filming battles. Also, I didn't realize, but Ruby Lin has been cast as Yu Ji (for those unfamiliar with the story - that means she's Peter Ho's OTP and one of two leading ladies). I am...relieved. She's not my ideal Yu Ji (who would probably be Liu Shi Shi) but she's beautiful, age-appropriate and, while not someone who made me obsessed about her characters, never had me dislike a character of hers either. The only thing is...she's tiny. She will need a stepladder if there are to be any non-horizontal PDAs. LOL. Gives a whole new meaning to the Russian phrase of 'pocket wife.' Good thing I adore height differences.

Oh, and have another pic I found (thanks, spcnet!) of Peter Ho as Xiang Yu, BAMF of Ancient Times :P



2. I have no idea why I am anticipating Xuanyuanjian. It's the same type of drama/by the same people as Chinese Paladin 1, which I hated, and Chinese Paladin 3 (where I watched only for Wallace Huo and Tang Yan and their story). But! I cannot resist Hu Ge. Especially playing a baddie. A baddie with an OTP. Mmmmmm. Call me an eternal optimist. Plus, surely, some newbie dude who plays the hero Lin Geng Xin's hero (yes, BuBuJingXin's 14th Prince is the lead, and opposite Liu Shi Shi. 14/RuoXi shippers rejoice!) simply cannot be as annoying as Hu Ge's protagonist in CP3. Too bad LGX does zip for me (though maybe a little here, because he looks a bit like Eddie Peng in this get-up). But aaaaaaaah, Hu Ge! I am Team Bad Guy on this one.

The official MV sure is pretty and hits every one of my kinks:



I am amused that, once again, Hu Ge and Liu Shi Shi share a drama without being an OTP. WTF, Tangren? They have crazy chemistry. I spent a decent chunk of Chinese Paladin 3 wanting their brother-and-sister characters to tear each other's clothes off against the wall.



In conclusion, you can rule my world any time, Bad Guy!

Are these Eurotrash? Or a Goth band on the way to a Eurovision contest? Well, that or vampires.

(For those of you who are wondering, we shall return to our regular drama programming on Monday, after a two-week hiatus by yours truly from any drama watching - A Man of Honor and Kim Tae Hee's jdrama are waiting).

I was in the mood for something cheesy and silly so, on an utter whim, I decided to watch New Moon.

Now, my whole Twilight history is as follows - I bought Twilight (the novel) before it got big, mainly because it had a pretty cover. I enjoyed it as a fun, romance-novel, brain-dead piece of candy. I barely made it through New Moon and never did read Eclipse or Breaking Dawn. Oh, and I saw Twilight the Movie, which was horrible ("this is the skin of a killer!" Our whole theater lost it).

Watching NM, I skipped all vampire-less scenes - I thus didn't have to deal with Bella moping or Jacob (sorry, nothing against the guy, but he's kinda boring).

You know what hit me this time around?

1. I am actually pleased that female-targeted movies/books are such a hit. These things are basically cleaner romance novels, minus shirtless hunk on the cover. I like seeing that succeed.

2. I know it's fashionable to view SMeyer as the Archenemy but I don't get it. Sure, the plot could be tighter (but once again, this is a romance novel, where any plot is incidental to romance. Complaining these books lack plot is like complaining space opera has a lot of battles. I think privileging a plot-driven narrative over an emotion-driven one is problematic tbh), but she is a self-made woman - how many of us can turn our fantasies into $$$?

3. Related to 2 - the fashionable complaint is that SMeyer is antifeminist and her books are going to ruin ruin RUIN teen girls! This is silly. It's like the argument conservatives like to make that videogame violence leads to murder in real life. Whatever you may think of Bella (I couldn't help but notice, Bella is in the position of power - poor sparkly Edward has no say in anything - she wants to be a vampire, so guess what happens? He literally cannot live without her awesomeness, etcetc. Sure, he's obsessive and posessive, but this is a trashy Gothic romance novel - it's par for the course), nobody is going to model her life and relationships on her (or any other heroine of a novel or even a series of novels) unless there is something else hugely problematic going on in their lives. I spent my childhood/teen years reading Victorian novels and ancient Roman and Greek works - I have not turned into a pagan nympho (from reading Apuleius) or a Victorian child-woman.

Anyway, enough comments...Have the funniest thing in the movie - Edward trying to off himself by sparkliness. Literally. Ah, a small, silly part of me revels in this romance-novel cornucopia.







So, yeah, my verdict on the series still stands - so very trashy but so very entertaining...

I think more romance novels should be adopted into things for my delectation. The movies of this have a huge advantage of not having to read about Edward Sparklepire's perfection on every page. Plus, since I skipped all emo Bella parts, I didn't have to watch how she throws an omg!can't!live!without!him party for herself.

I've been craving a lakorn for a while. My choice - Oum Ruk, starring the legendary pairing of Ken and Anne.

They play a fashion photographer and a model respectively. They dislike each other intensely but end up in a drunken one-night stand anyway. All well and good, and both would prefer forgetting it ever happened, only she is pregnant! And the story goes from there.




I really loved Ken and Anne's chemistry in Sawan Biang (which was a drama which made me come closest to being OK with the insane 'fall for your rapist' trope many a lakorn seems to love. They just were so dysfunctional, I felt I could almost explain it away. Plus the chemistry and the fact that this was the sole lakorn which actually pointed out this was bad and made heroine put the dude through hell before she decided to trust him again. Not that it made it right or anything but I was almost sold. OK, I can't believe I just typed that - I feel dirty now. Maybe it was just not too bad in comparison to JLR which traumatized me forever and made anything else seem decent in comparison).

And this looks light and fun and rape-free. Plus, Anne is good at playing strong women and Ken is so ridiculously hot.

Namely "is Hyemi sleeping or is she not?" during the you-know-what scene.

Cap courtesy of eagle-eyed soompier, warning: it's enormous )

Oops, I think I am back on team JG/Hyemi. This drama is turning me into a human ping-pong ball.

I am obsessed with this drama, seriously - only two eps per week is cruel and unusual punishment. Almost as bad as the drama using the Schindler's List theme during the tv interview with JG and his evil Daddy. I mean - whaaaaaaaaat? Has Daddy been killing non-Koreans in secret? Is about to send JG to concentration camp? Otherwise it's way way overkill and stupid beyond words. I get it, Daddy is evil. But not this level evil so knock it off, drama.

At least if we go by kdrama rules of "who kisses the girl first, gets the girl" (at least in present day, flashbacks are excluded from that rule - see Chuno.)

Guess who this is behind the cut, laying the lipsmack on Hyemi. Hint - it's not Pil Sook )

Discuss.

But if you do not like this scene in MSOAN, you have no soul )

It's funny, both Gloria and Secret Garden are objectively better dramas and I love them more. But neither makes me as giddy and as brought back to my own long-ago college-age self falling in love for the first time - with Mr. Mousie - as MSOAN does.
dangermousie: (Chuno - hands by alexandral)
Their chemistry is unreal. I have not seen anything close to it all year.



I am watching episode 4 of Secret Garden, and he's being horrible and she's fighting back, and they are both angry and lashing out and the air is so charged between them I am having trouble breathing. And you can't help but feel that at any moment the fight will end and they will just start tearing clothes off each other and going at it on the floor. I mean - wow. I have never seen anything like that. It's insane.





And then he bolts from the room in the middle of the fight because he's going crazy being in such close proximity to her.




Yowza. Please have hot, angry, messed-up sex already. Thanks.

ETA: Not really related but I wonder if there is a reason he's so claustrophobic. I mean, he's cripplingly, interfering-with-functioning claustrophobic (that's why he barely comes to work, he nearly had a screaming panic attack in a tunnel, and when he bolted after a fight with Ra Im it wasn't just because he was emotionally overwhelmed (though he was), it was also because they were in a small enclosed space and the fact finally hit him). I know there doesn't have to be a reason, sometimes people just have phobias, but I wonder if there is something more here. I love that Ra Im is the physically intrepid one and he's the very opposite. It's pretty unusual for a kdrama.

I had to pause Gloria because I literally burst into tears like an idiot and am sitting here typing while sniffling.

Kang Suk got Jin Jin roses, you guys.

You have no idea.

I don't mean he bought them for her as a romantic gesture, no, he knew she was going to her nightclub gig afterwards and she always runs out and buys roses before the gig so her handicapped older sister can sell them, and so he went and bought them, pre-wrapped, for her, so she wouldn't have to go buy them, and then came back where she was working late at another job and offered her a ride and then gave those to her.

And so I am totally sniffling like an utter moron. But! But! It got me because it wasn't a pretty but ultimately useless romantic gesture which giving her a bouquet would have been. No, instead it's such an unexpectedly thoughtful, caring, perfect thing to do.

And I am an idiot. So there.

But but but but...he shows his caring by things like this and having a water heater installed in her place so she won't have to worry about scalding her sister while bathing her and sharing a take-out order with her because the delivery place won't send only one order up and and and - I don't know. They are all practical important things and guuuuuuh. And this is before they are dating or he expressed any open interest in her or anything.

Also, how come this drama has the best conversations? My latest favorite is this one between Jin Jin and Kang Suk from ep 20.

Conversation, from ep 20, translations courtesy of haruharu )

Have a Ji Jin/Kang Suk MV. It's not super crisp, video-quality-wise, but the clips are awesome.



ETA: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! She just (a) guessed he was going to the fight club (b) told him while she understands why he likes to go, she wishes he wouldn't. And when he asked why, she said "because you get hurt." Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! His face!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

OK, I need to be on some sort of medication.
