EXCUSE ME?!

I am on episode 3 of Sealed with a rapey Kiss and unless I started spontaneously hallucinating, our 'hero' (I use the term loosely) just told the heroine that if she wants him to stop bankrupting her best friend's family as some sort of "I am pissed at heroine, so I'll get to her that way" strategy, he is willing:

a. To make friend his mistress too, just as he did with heroine. Friend, he is sure, will be equally happy to save her father. And they can all move together as a threesome!!!!!
b. If she doesn't like that and wants her friend spared, he's fine, as long as in exchange heroine sleeps with some of hero's business friends who are into that type of thing.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At this point, I am just watching out of sheer 'wtf insanity will I see in my screen next' impulse. I mean, that beats a lakorn - even in those rapey heroes don't want to prostitute the heroine to other dudes for group rape sex!!!!!!

THE HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, yeah, I know he isn't really ruining friend's family (that is a coincidence) and doesn't really intend for heroine to sleep with others, but the FACT that he's telling her that and she (reasonably) believes he means it and he knows she believes it.

THE FUCKING FUCK!!!!! I want him to die so badly, I can feel it!!!!!

RAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The thing is, if they took the heroine out of the story and concentrated on hero and his in-law craziness and business manips, it would be a pretty compelling drama about a bunch of psychos trying to one-up each other - I truly enjoy those scenes. But as it is, I looooong for heroine to get together with her sweet ex, and for hero to die die die die die die die after being tortured for a month slowly.

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE YOU FUCKING ABUSIVE PIG!!!!

ETA Why doesn't the heroine ever react by grabbing a giant knife and telling the hero as she's stabbing him "OK, freakshow, I am done being unselfish for everyone's sake. Let's see how well you torment me and my loved ones from the morgue?"

Probably because she has no standards "You treat me quite well, you never hit me" is what she drunkenly tells the hero.

WTF! Well, if that's your standard...

Good Lord.

Well, at least she calls him a psycho, that's something.

Also, I am incredibly amused that the only time he can show he loves her is when she's drunk or unconscious. I mean, carrying, smoochies, handholding and yearning gaze are better when the recipient is conscious. Yo, freakshow, perhaps she might like you better if you took her out on dates and treated her well, instead of insulting and playing mindgames with her. Just saying!

ETA2: So, I lasted 12 episodes of Sealed with a Kiss but I can't any more. I am out.

I survived Defendant of Love but I can't SwaK, it's too too too enraging.

So, I am out at ep 12, where heroine finally got liberated from psycho (thanks to my fave character, psycho's bro-in-law) and psycho is in despair and heroine got together and is happy with ex.

Hooray!

I will pretend this is the ending and meanwhile fantasize that heroine and ex live happily ever after while Hawick's character is being gangraped in prison.

The end.

I am out!

I am on episode 3 of Sealed with a rapey Kiss and unless I started spontaneously hallucinating, our 'hero' (I use the term loosely) just told the heroine that if she wants him to stop bankrupting her best friend's family as some sort of "I am pissed at heroine, so I'll get to her that way" strategy, he is willing:

a. To make friend his mistress too, just as he did with heroine. Friend, he is sure, will be equally happy to save her father. And they can all move together as a threesome!!!!!
b. If she doesn't like that and wants her friend spared, he's fine, as long as in exchange heroine sleeps with some of hero's business friends who are into that type of thing.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At this point, I am just watching out of sheer 'wtf insanity will I see in my screen next' impulse. I mean, that beats a lakorn - even in those rapey heroes don't want to prostitute the heroine to other dudes for group rape sex!!!!!!

THE HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, yeah, I know he isn't really ruining friend's family (that is a coincidence) and doesn't really intend for heroine to sleep with others, but the FACT that he's telling her that and she (reasonably) believes he means it and he knows she believes it.

THE FUCKING FUCK!!!!! I want him to die so badly, I can feel it!!!!!

RAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The thing is, if they took the heroine out of the story and concentrated on hero and his in-law craziness and business manips, it would be a pretty compelling drama about a bunch of psychos trying to one-up each other - I truly enjoy those scenes.

Ummmm, I both want to bleach my brain and cannot stop watching, as far as the recent cdrama Sealed with a Kiss, starring Hawick Lau and Liu Ying goes. It's as if China looked at Thai lakorns with envy and decided to make one of its own, only with better production values.

It's based on a very popular novel which seems to have time-traveled straight from the 1920s, the era of The Sheik and Elinor Glyn.



The premise goes a long way to explain my bizarre reaction - Liu Ying is the hapless heroine, the beautiful and naive young woman, who gets blackmailed by the ruthless businessman Hawick Lau into becoming his mistress (otherwise her uncle goes to jail). Hawick does it as some sort of bizarro revenge against Liu Ying's now-dead parents who ruined his family, or something. But then he falls in luuuuuuuuuurve!

OK, the premise is pretty brain-bleaching, but tbh, I probably wouldn't have been so 'my eyes! my brain! my morals!' if the relationship started that way but then they ended up having a functional supportive relationship.

BUT NO!!!! I have just finished the first ep, during most of which I have spent my time screaming at the screen 'die die die pig!!!!!!' at Hawick's character. Let's see, during the course of the first episode he (1) abuses her emotionally, pretty much calling her a worthless whore who is not good at faking affection and who can have no volition of her own (2) borderline abuses her physically - I don't think showing people is a good thing (3) controls her life - he is pissed off so she gets lets go from a project she likes at work

Did I mention that he's married to a woman who bought-blackmailed him into marriage (but he refuses to sleep with her evah, LOL). Which, you'd think, would give anyone with an ounce of empathy plenty of opportunity to understand why blackmailing people into relationships is bad. But apparently not.

Oh, and he gets pissed off because she fantasizes about another man when they have sex and because she doesn't ever kiss him back - I mean, how dare she not love the man who coerced her to be his mistress and than treats her like a slave! Ungrateful hussy! I mean, it is utterly incomprehensible that she is hoarding all the fancy jewelry he gave her so she can get enough to escape. We are supposed to get that he's in love with her however this started and is extra-bastardy to her because (a) she doesn't love him back (b) he is in denial and wants to prove to himself he doesn't love her, but these are explanations not excuses.

Hey, genius, maybe treating her well, will get you further?

Anyway, I want to stab him in the face and twist twist twist! But yet I cannot stop because this thing is as addictive as it is repulsive - their relationship is such a trainwreck, you never know what will happen next, and they do have amazing chemistry. Guuuuuh, I despise myself but I cannot stop!

On the plus side, Yang Mi's good taste in boyfriends is confirmed. I've only seen Hawick in period stuff before, clothed to the throat, but there are some nice things underneath those garments.



Also, the series was a huge hit and now they are making a mini-sequel. I saw some promo pics and give up - he's handcuffed and grabbing her toes! The protagonists clearly have a relationship not understood by a normal brain.

Have a MV which pretty much sums up the appeal to my lizard brain - they are fucked up people!

To say I am rabid about these two is an understatement.

Mmmmmm. He's so fucked up and intense and good at killing things and she's so bubbly and sane and sweet (where I am at. Knowing this drama, she won't stay this way for long). Mmmmmm. I totally LOLed at their first meeting, when he was reciting some supremely depressing poem about flowers withering etc and she interrupted and was all 'stop being so emo, they'll grow back next spring.' LOLOLOL In this drama they'd probably be bulldozed forever instead, and then a puppy would be killed on their remains.

Speaking of emo, I honestly don't get the Liancheng/Fuya fangirls. I mean, everyone can ship what they like, but I just don't get it. He plotted to have her father killed and blackmailed her into a relationship. That's not really a basis for undying happiness. Not that being with Qiyou is a bowl of roses, either - the man makes me want to time-travel a platoon of shrinks back to ancient China - but Fuya loves him so there is that. With Liancheng, other than on general principles, she wouldn't care if he expired at her feet.

Well, we'll see. I am not too far in, because I need subs. If there ever were official DVDs with subs, I'd go rabid.

Btw, speaking of trainwrecks, viki picked up Sealed with a Kiss for subing. Yes, the one with Hawick Lau playing our protagonist, a psycho who blackmails the heroine into becoming his mistress by threatening to put her uncle in jail. He is not in love with her or anything - he just wants revenge on her father. I will probably be checking it out of sheer morbid curiosity. Well, morbid curiosity and hoping she stabs him with scissors.

In other drama news, I am sure everyone has heard by now, but What's Up is finally going to air this winter. EEEEEE!

Also, I've been in a bit of a kdrama slump (I am sure you've figured it out) but now subs for first 3 eps of Man of Honor are out and I know what I am doing with my free time.

On a final note, I am still slowly but surely working my way through My Girlfriend is a Gumiho and loving it - the character growth is so organic and gradual and wonderful and Miho/Woong are amazing together.

Caps of cuteness )

Well, we'll see. I am not too far in, because I need subs. If there ever were official DVDs with subs, I'd go rabid.

Btw, speaking of trainwrecks, viki picked up Sealed with a Kiss for subing. Yes, the one with Hawick Lau playing our protagonist, a psycho who blackmails the heroine into becoming his mistress by threatening to put her uncle in jail. He is not in love with her or anything - he just wants revenge on her father. I will probably be checking it out of sheer morbid curiosity. Well, morbid curiosity and hoping she stabs him with scissors.

In other drama news, I am sure everyone has heard by now, but What's Up is finally going to air this winter. EEEEEE!

Also, I've been in a bit of a kdrama slump (I am sure you've figured it out) but now subs for first 3 eps of Man of Honor are out and I know what I am doing with my free time.

On a final note, I am still slowly but surely working my way through My Girlfriend is a Gumiho and loving it - the character growth is so organic and gradual and wonderful and Miho/Woong are amazing together.

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.
