I am a masochist so I've been rewatching Smile, in small dozes. All the prejudice makes me horribly angry and it's not really a fluffy sweet drama by any stretch of the imagination, but I just love Vito and Hana so much - they are both 'defective' in society's eyes due to their heritage through no fault of their own (his ethnic, hers due to her father's crimes), and both have had such a horrible time of it, but have so much capacity for love and hope.

I watched ep 4 today and Hana keeps collapsing and Vito keeps taking care of her which hits my fictional kinks :P








And again...



YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!



Side note - I just love how he can't believe she actually likes him romantically because he has no sense of self-worth at all, but by the end of this ep he finally does.

1. Watched eps 2-4 of Love Shuffle with [livejournal.com profile] filmi_girl, and honestly, such a perfect drama. One of the few I rewatch regularly. For some reason, on this rewatch, it's Yuki that's getting to me the most. I just want to adopt and cuddle him (I am shocked that this is the only drama DAIGO has done other than a couple of cameos - he's excellent in the role and I would have never guessed he was a newbie). Also, I don't think I realized this before, but that scene with Kairi on the bridge is the first time we see Ojiro open up to anyone. He's excellent at getting to the core of others' innermost selves but he kept every single private thing about himself closed off and you don't realize until he opens up to Kairi. A suicide-obsessive and an adrenaline junkie who may or may not have a deathwish - kinda perfect. Psychiatrist is freaking me out even more this time, and nobody is going to convince me that a major chunk of his plan wasn't spoilers for the whole enchilada )

2. Because I am some sort of a masochist, I feel like rewatching Matsujun's Smile, an amazing, underrated drama that broke me. We'll see. Have a MV:



I think Smile is my favorite Matsujun drama. Yes, even above *gasp* Hanadan.

3. I am pre-obsessed with Kingyo Club which looks like a teen angsty love story per my precise specs. He saves her from bullying! Awwwwww. Have a MV:



4. Have I mentioned how ridiculously awesome the cast of Taira no Kiyomori is? Because OMG. I am watching that baby raw.

I have watched the first ep of Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre, the 2009 version. It was gorgeous but made no sense - I am totally lost as to what is going on or who these people are. I am going to stick with it for a few eps because Return of the Condor Heroes 2006, made by the same people, had the same problem - first couple eps were odd and left me utterly confused but then it just got amazing after that and everything fell into place. Let's hope this follows the pattern. But as for now, it is so incredibly visually beautiful. Just check out the credits.



Credits caps )

Also, I was rewatching Smile - totally underrated - I really need to do a 'most underrated dramas' list - and have some shippy darlingness from ep 3. I am always so impressed by Matsujun - his gentle, tentative, beaten-down Vito has nothing in common with arrogant, thick-headed Domyouji.



Cuter than puppies )

And last, but not least, I stole this Mars mv from [livejournal.com profile] ambergold. It's so incredible. Mars was my first drama, all these years ago and the reason why I have become a drama nut - I was so obsessed with it. And all these years later, it's still possibly my favorite drama. Ever. Two incredibly damaged people who find and love and heal each other? Oh YES.

So, year 2009 has been very good for me OTP-wise, providing many a drama OTP for me to swoon over.

But let's see how I did in the "happy ending for the OTP" stakes - do I go for the tragic ones that break my heart or fluffiness?

Here - obviously spoilers for endings of dramas in my tags )


Hmmm. 11/20 happy

Even if I haven't seen the eight eps in-between (I plan to marathon the eps of Smile I haven't seen), at least I know it will be OK.






I don't think I could have borne it otherwise.

1. Say what you will about Taiwanese dramas, they certainly deliver on the kissing front:



From Easy Fortune Happy Life - now that the drama is over, I'll probably watch it with help of fast-forward to mitigate the heroine's horrific mugging. I love my angsty twdramas but most of the cracky ones leave me scratching my head.

2. Speaking of crack, there is an upcoming Mike He/Charlene Choi drama Calling for Love whose hero is supposed to be a big idol star who actually is only doing it to pay off family debts and secretly yearns to be a graduate student. I mean, as this and upcoming Summer of Bubbles indicate, if you are broke or otherwise in monetary trouble, the easiest thing to do is to become an idol - after all, everyone seems to do it. HA.

3. Mark Chao (from Black and White *swoon*) apparently has an upcoming drama filming where he is the lead. Thank you, drama tptb.

4. I will never stop laughing at the concept of panda superheroes drama. Yeah. Go go go go you fierce Pandamen!

5. Have a little Vanness/Ady (Next Stop Happiness in few days YES):



In conclusion, I am not watching a single currently-airing drama. However, it's about to change with the near-simulataneous arrival of Next Stop Happiness (Taiwan), You're Beautiful (Korea) and IRIS (Korea). Still, my goal is to finish Smile before that - I love my Matsujun.

I have finished ep 5 of Orthros No Inu and it was total love. Last year was a wash for me, jdrama-speaking - I cannot think of a single one I liked. This year is shaping lovely though - I am obsessed with OnI, I adored what I have watched of Smile (must complete now the subs are done), Otomen is very cute, and [livejournal.com profile] filmi_girl just introduced me to the adorableness that is Buzzer Beat. Not bad, jdrama world, not bad.



(I adore the 'subtle' symbolism)

Thoughts on and caps of ep 5 )

Oh, and as I mentioned up top, Buzzer Beat is adorable. Mainly because of the way Yamapi looks at his OTP:
