dangermousie: (Cuidado con el Angel)
In between working, prepping for Baby Mousie's third birthday party, and entertaining both sets of our parents, I got time to sneak more of my newest obsession.

* Maite and William have insane, insane chemistry! No matter what they are doing on-screen (talking, fighting, staring, whatever), all I keep thinking is 'why are you not having sex against the wall yet?'

* Juan Miguel seems to be a human iceberg but not when he's around Marichuy - she really gets under his skin in a totally visceral way and he really loses any control - he becomes a total sucker for a hard luck story that shouldn't fool a cat (more about it below), he's devastated like a kid who learns Santa isn't real when he finds out she lied, he tracks her down in the middle of the slum to have a fight:

Visual evidence )

And pretty much throughout, he stares at her as if he wants to devour her (when he normally is Mr. Detachment). He even muses about how pretty her name is. It's adorable! It's like a kid with a crush.

* My favorite scene so far is the one in jail (where cops bust Marichuy as one of the people fighting in a nightclub) that goes something like this:

Juan Miguel: Delinquents, I want to help you!
Delinquents: Awww, man, ignore the square.
Marichuy: Hmmmmm, I know a sucker when I see one...
*comes closer*
Marichuy: Here, big guy, how about this story that should fool nobody? Yeah, I was there because I was delivering news to a waiter his wife was giving birth and my parents will beat me and I am a good girl let me out...
Juan Miguel: Braaaaaaain locking down.
Marichuy: Hmmmmm, maybe I should be clearer. Let me demonstrate my innocence by clinging to you in a full body hug. Mmmmmmmm...is that a six pack I can feel under that suit? Daaaaamn, I want to take this for a trial ride. Ooops, no that was me :P
Juan Miguel: Where do I put my hands? Panic!!!! Ice melting around heart...robot self does not know how to cope with human emotion overdose. Heeeeeeelp!








And of course, he buys her story and gets her out. Awwwwwwwww.

* I am glad to announce that even when he barely escaped deadly perils of the watery grave and is in ICU, Juan Miguel lets nothing interfere with his hair. It's just as perfectly styled as ever.

* OMG, the little girl who plays Juan Miguel's daughter is the most adorable thing ever! I just want to squish her and pinch her cheeks! I am entirely confused as to how he's old enough to have a 6-7 yr old kid (I know people in Mexico marry earlier than in the US so...hmmmm).

* And that is why I am glad Juan Miguel's wife is deeeeeeeeeead. I don't blame her for the marriage not working out - that is both their faults - sure, she was shallow and solipsistic but he's completely uninvested and looks like he'd rather be trimming his nails than be in her vicinity (I totally laughed when she was complaining to her Mom he never ever showed any passion for her and wondering if there is another woman. If this was not a telenovela, the answer would be 'dear, have you checked out your hubby's sexual preferences?' But since it is, it's just that nobody but heroine can melt his icy heart). Nope, it's because the wife is a horrible mother. WTF with putting a 6-yr-old (normal weight btw) on a strict diet so she won't become chubby later. WTF! Go eat a piece of cake at the wake, kid!

In other news, this is what kdramas need! Makeouts! Kind soul posted their wedding night on youtube. In 28 eps I shall be there!

dangermousie: (ISWAK knees by ameyadevi)


Clearly, these folks aren't British.

Whoa, my eyes sort of slid out of my sockets to see something like that in a drama, even a Taiwanese drama.

This is a scene from the first ep of They Kiss Again, a sequel to the wildly successful It Started With a Kiss, a drama about Xiang Qin, an extraverted bubblehead and Zhi Shu, an unemotional brainiac. If ISWAK was all about Xiang Qin going after (and getting) her man with a scary degree of perseverance, TKA follows the beginnings of their married life - who needs a "does he love me" emo with two such different personalities having to adjust to being together.

Anyway, their honeymoon make-out killed the momentum of the story (such as it was - the first ep is basically all fanservice) utterly dead. But I couldn't really begrudge it - just like the rest of the first ep, it was a total fanservice for the ISWAK fans who have probably wanted to see something like this for 20+ eps.

Yes, indeed. People in dramas have sex. Eleventy )

And now I am off to watch Lawyers of Korea. If it has a scene similar to this, I'll faint.

dangermousie: (Handsome Siblings Nic by meganbmoore)
Two unrelated Asian Pop thoughts.

[livejournal.com profile] fivil linked me to pics from a Shinhwa naked photobook (for those who are, like me, ignorant of matters of pop, Shinhwa is a very popular Korean boyband. I cannot speak as to their musical merits as I haven't heard a note, but the eye candy factor is very much present).

And by naked, I mean naked. Nekkid, nekkid, nekkid. But not just that! Those pics are not just solo shoots. In fact, a large number of them are so incredibly, explicitly homoerotic that in order to get any further on that scale, it would either become: a. outright groping or b. go off the edge and end up completely straight again :)

A sample or two. Very VERY not safe for work )

The thing that amuses and bemuses me, however, is that if an American band (let alone boyband) had pictures like that, they would be done. Finished. Kaput. But this is from an official book, a publication to promote them, get them more notice etc i.e. looking for a positive reaction! And from what I can tell, Shinhwa is quite mainstream and popular, not a niche band just for gay audiences. I don't know, I am sort of intrigued by the concept difference.

Also, that leaves me with two final notes:

a. If you think your job requires you to get close to your coworkers, think again AND
b. Every time I now see Eric Mun in Que Sera Sera, I experience a brief sense of mingled relief and disappointment that he seems to be dressed. Surely that is abnormal for any Shinhwa member.

On an unrelated note, the Edison Chen sex scandal. Apparently, the rumor now is that those pics of Cecilia Cheung with Edison? Were taken either shortly before her marriage to Nic Tse or even after (!!!!) There are, also, of course, rumors of divorce.

OK, what I want to know, is what sane woman would cheat on Nicholas Tse, surely one of the most gorgeous guys in Chinese pop/cinema/dramaworld with Edison Chen? Seriously. WTF? When Nic Tse looks like this. Also, I don't know anything about Nic Tse's personality but unless he is a complete mental case, he's got to be better than someone so sleazy who takes explicit pics of himself with his conquests, shows them off to his buddies, and then is so dimwitted as to take his computer to the shop without bothering to get the pics off. I mean, whatever else, Nicholas Tse has got to be brighter because surely no one could be dumber than that.

dangermousie: (FY: Hotohori salute by seiran_icons)
Mmmmmm. The Fushigi Yuugi credits are still my favorite. Especially that shot of Tamahome kneeling between rows of soldiers.

Also, gosh, I'd forgotten the sextasticness of the show. That bit where Tamahome and Hotohori slash themselves in unison and their blood falls in two giant blobs on Miaka's bandanged breasts? OMG. So porny.

But not half as porny as the blood donation scene later. OMG.
