Am on episode 3 of Me Too, Flower and I truly truly love both Yoon Si Yoon's character and YSY's portrayal of the same. I have always been drawn to characters with hidden damage.




You know, this drama has nothing in common with Mars, but in one respect it does remind me of it - we have protagonists both of whom are messed up, but while we realize that with the heroine right away, only as the drama goes on do we realize that hero might be even more messed up than she.

Btw, the awesome Koala is loving this drama. If you are caught up, you should check out her posts (I am trying to stay away as am behind and am, for once, spoilerphobic).

Seriously, just how many hot men are in Three Kingdoms? According to this drama, it was a requirement back then to be hot in order to be involved in politics.

Not that I am complaining because that means that even though my beloved Lu Bu is dead, I still have plenty of eye candy to look at, in between the politics and battles and backstabbing. I might as well be compensated because with Diaochan's death, there is currently zero female characters with speaking roles. No wonder this drama has a legion of slashers.

I really loved the scene where Lanyan found the town magistrate and told him she killed her husband. So calmly. But not before burning the money with which Playboy was going to buy her freedom so as not to incriminate him. I just love this scene for so many reasons:

a. Even though she's bound in the traditional role forced on her by society, Lanyan has a spine of steel. To do that - to dispose of the evidence and then to voluntarily come out and confess, not hide or try to come up with an excuse or try to use Playboy's prestige as a shield - she's amazing.
b. First Love's reaction - he can't believe it "you are so kind, how can you kill a man?" and her reply "life is hard, everything changes." Because that is why First Love is not worthy of her and never will be worthy of her - he doesn't love the real Lanyan, he loves this constructed image in his head that has little to do with her. He's happier relinquishing her because that way his fantasy doesn't have to come in contact and conflict with reality. And because it is all his fault. He left the woman he claimed he loved (and who loved him) in the clutches of a man he knew was an abuser, a rape-enabler, a total piece of scum because he felt "sorry" for the man. He put feeling "noble" about the very basic well-being of the woman he "loved." Yeah. Go die.
c. Lanyan can love to an amazing degree. See her protecting Playboy (who, true, didn't kill hubby, but Lanyan killed hubby to protect him). But, at last, she's found someone worthy of being loved/protected because, I bet anything, Playboy isn't going to let her do this - he will try to either save her or share her punishment. And I am so glad that, for once, her efforts are for someone worthy.

ETA: She's sentenced to death??????!!! She's obviously going to get out of it or it will be a very short drama, but I have no idea how. And I am glad Playboy didn't disappoint me. The second he heard she was arrested, he was going to go and find her/confess/try to get her out/etc only his mother (for once I totally get her) had him locked up and under guard because she doesn't want her sole son to be offed for murder.

Now I know they are doomed.



Well, at least she's properly ashamed of herself. Well, either that, or she's upset over braining her husband with a shovel. Not sure which.

Joking aside, I am totally addicted to this drama even though I loathe everyone in it except for the OTP.

If there is one thing watching wuxia dramas taught me it is that if there is some sort of famous saying about your martial prowess, you might as well make out your will. In Three Kingdoms, there was one about Lu Bu and his horse, and Lu Bu met a grisly grisly death (though his horse fared much better). Now there is one about beggar guy and fugly cousin in DG&SD so I am pretty sure both of them are toast. Unless one of them turns into a horse, that is.

In other news, was checking my downloads, and DG&SD promises me the below. I have no idea what is going on, but I do believe these are the bodies of sibling makeouter's parents. I foresee epic angst. Am I a bad person for saying I cannot wait?





Clearly, in wuxia world, if you are parents and you have a hot heroic kid, you are doomed to die in a grisly fashion to provide him with some character-building misery and possibly a vendetta.

Oh, and another thing I learned from wuxia. All parents are insane. This is from Heaven Sword & Dragon Sabre. That is a hell of a motherly dying advice to give to your little kid as he's freaking out over the murder of his father, not knowing his mother is about to follow suit. Way to screw him up for life, lady!




Of course, none of these are as cool as the one about the fact that having a hot female master means you simply must practice kung fu naked in a field of flowers, that I learned years ago, courtesy of ROCH.



Yeah, kung fu practice. That's what all the cool kids are calling it these days :P

I think I need a wuxia break, I am sort of overdosing. I am going back to Romantic Red Rouge.

Hello, there, half-siblings!!!!



Now I see why you guys didn't remember the kung-fu hamster.

The hot scene of wrongness. Or is it the wrong scene of hotness? )

This is literally the most insane thing I've ever seen, so of course instead of doing errands or finally making my epic Young Warriors post, I am spending my time marathonning this puppy.
