When we last left our hapless heroes, Heroine regained her memory and screamed for her "Songjoo oppa", but Sexy Hero has given up believing she is his dead love and just walked away.



So, your usual weekday then.

Enter here for more dysfunction and angst )

I may be taking a little break from Stairway to Heaven - so much angst and intensity is hard to do in a big gulp. But I shall get back to it soon!

I am on ep 11 of Stairway to Heaven and it's official - by now I loathe every single character in this angstfest except for the unfortunate hero, who I want to ship far away from Korea after wiping his brain.

Yes, this loathing includes the heroine. She's got her memory back, she and hero reunited, she and is back in her family.

Her next move? To push to get the hero married to her stepsister, as was previously arranged between the families. You know, stepsis? The one who did her best to kill her and generally to wreck her life.

WHAAAAAAAAT? Did the accident damage her brain and make her a moron?

How does that work? She is sacrificing her own happiness and the happiness of the guy she professes to love more than anything to keep her wannabe killer happy? HOW DOES THAT EVEN COMPUTE? There's saintly and there is insane. And fine, if she was sacrificing her own feelings only, I'd just say she's a moron but to each her own. But she keeps breaking poor hero's heart over and over and over for such a lunatic cause? UGH WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU, YOU FREAK?

Seriously, WHAT THE HELL?

I think she likes being a martyr but why drag others in? This drama is giving me RAGE.

OK, this is based on previews of ep 11 so maybe they are misleading and it's more complicated. But why doesn't she just stand up and tell what happened and then say 'Songjoo oppa is mine, fuck off, alll your psychos or I will hurt you?' Seriously.

WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING, YOU CRAZY BITCH?

OK, this is the first time I had to use the capslock fo rage at the heroine but come on! Why ARE you leaving the hero and going back to Sister Luster? You could tell him who you are and I am pretty sure he wil believe you if you didn't just kept saying without any proof but showed him your frigging necklace!!!! He will be mad with joy to have you back. Or, he seems to be willing to date you as Jisoo, insofar as he's capable of dating anyone - he's more messed-up than an army of mutants so not sure how far that would go, but it's better than freaking Sister Luster. What the hell are you doing?????

You are going back to Sister Luster because when you and Hero were both drunk he refused to accept you telling him you are Jung Suh (once again, show your necklace, you village idiot) and also when you asked him (when you were both drunk!!!!) whether you should go back to the old bf (i.e. Sister Luster), he said yes. What are you, a total wimp who can't even fight for your love?

ANYWAY, YOU ARE OFFICIALLY INSANE.

To be honest, if she can't convince him she is Jung Suh, she is better off not even trying to date him as Jisoo because he is simply not capable of any functional romantic relationship in any way. Unless dead Jung Suh cames back. But still - going back to Sister Luster??? Lady, just try harder to convince him - hello!!!!

ETA: Yo, Hero! You did not go after her, you deserve whatever you get! ARGH SO FRUSTRATED. (Yes, I know, from his pov letting her go is the best thing he can do for her because as he sees it his issues have turned a perfectly normal woman into someone messed up enough to claim she is a dead girl he loved. I am not rational about this, OK?)

ETA2: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! FINALLY YES OMG REUNION IT IS THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER only now my face is so blotchy I am not fit to be seen and I have to go outside to pick up Baby Mousie.

After I described the plot of Stairway to Heaven to Mr. Mousie, his opinion was that the drama's message was "if you are born in Korea and genuinely believe in reincarnation, then kill yourself right away and hope like hell you'll be reborn somewhere else."



Indeed.

Ep 8 features some truly spectacular angst (best angsty shower scene EVER!) but also some sweetness.

Yo, Bitch! Your son is in his late 20s if he's a day. He's also been around the block s few times, so he's hardly a poor little lamb. Surely by now he's old enough to date whoever he wants - stay thhe fuck out of it and don't dump envelopes of money on the girl like she's a hooker in front of your son.

Plus, dating this girl just might help with the MASSIVE NERVOUS BREAKDOWN he's been having for the last 5 years - you know, the one you haven't noticed at all?

UGH I HATE EVERY FREAKING CHARACTER IN THIS DRAMA EXCEPT FOR HERO AND HEROINE. They must have been serial killers AND cannibals in their past life to get karma like this!

By now (I am on ep 9), Hero and Heroine are dating - it's the most dysfunctional thing ever because he's given up believing she's Jung Suh but he wants to date her anyway, desperately, and when he's around her, half the time he's talking about Jung Suh (that guy needs SO MUCH THERAPY, poor woobie!) and she has regained her memory but she hasn't been able to tell him because she sees how screwed up he is and doesn't want to bring all of this up again until she figures out how to do it gently and in a way that makes sense and so he'd believe it (Lady, if you were a little less vehement earlier about not being Jung Suh, you might have had it easier now). They are both so very very screwed up. She basically sees him madly in love with her without him knowing it's her or her being able to tell him. Man, these two need years of therapy.

Ahhhh, Sister Luster literally rolled in agony on the floor. How I laughed!

Also on the plus side. Prettiness:



Though dressing up as Cindrella and Prince Charming was...odd. Whatever, I'd prefer leather and chains myself but everyone to his taste :P

Proper recaps are coming up, I just had to share my rant or explode.

All you guys who told me Stairway to Heaven was depressing totally lied! I mean, sure, I started crying two minutes into episode 7 and poor Hero and Heroine have enough angst for a small Siberian village (I cannot wait for Heroine to regain her memory. My wishful scenario is for her to turn Buffy, enlist Hero to her cause, and then they go stake the rest of the cast and then cut off their heads).

BUT.

You guys have NO idea the amount of sheer unadulterated joy I get from watching Psycho Bitch and Sister Luster freak and panic and run around and worry about their crimes being exposed and suffer suffer suffer. I was literally laughing out loud at Sister Luster running around like a mad person because Heroine wouldn't take his calls, being busy celebrating Hero's birthday and getting almost kissed. Ahahahahahahaha in your face! I wish I could get a videotape of Hero and Heroine getting it on and mail it to you and make you watch it, you nasty gargoyle freak! Psycho Bitch's almost cartoon panic is even better. Every time I see her lose it, I experience almost transcendent joy.

Also, if you were Heroine, who would you pick?

Hideous as sin stepbrother who basically kidnapped you, kept you away from friends, family, and boyfriend, lied to you about your true identity and past, lied to you that you are his girlfriend to get in your pants and has generally behaved in subhuman fashion? Also, he stole Farrah Fawsett's hairdo.



Or a sexy rich guy who is your best friend and boyfriend who is madly devoted, gives you presents on his birthday, is fun and intense, and probably is good in bed. Also a plus -is not evil or insane.



Ahhh, dilemmas, dilemmas.

You know my mad enjoyment of Stairway to Heaven finally made me realize something - I adore kdrama melodramas so much but only when the melodrama in question is a strongly romantic - where the story revolves around Love That Cannot Be. I mean, an average ep of StH has more romantic moments than an entire season of an American show. And all my favorite melodramas (StH, Tree of Heaven, A Love to Kill, Beautiful Days, Winter Sonata, Spring Waltz) are hyper-focused on the love story. OTOH when it's a family-oriented melodrama, I lose interest. In the melodrama context, I am only interested in romance. This is why, e.g., I don't like MiSa as much as the melodramas mentioned above - the ratio of romance to family issues is much smaller - the family stuff takes a lot more space and so I check out. I think that is why Cinderella Unni stopped interesting me after the first 4 eps (which were, significantly, more romance-centric than the subsequent eps). CU is well-written and well-acted melodrama but it's not a romantic melodrama. Any romance in it isn't over-present - the drama focuses on family dynamics. And that's something I am not as interested in at all.

ETA: ARGH ARGH HERO'S HORRIBLE AWFUL MOTHER DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE. Oh boy, StH is giving me emotions a hell of a work out.. DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE YOU UNEARTHLY BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
