I am so behind on twdrama Starlit that I am almost tempted just to wait until it's done and watch it then. But then I checked out the latest ep (18) and saw this:




Did I mention this?



A few more caps )

I have no idea what is going on, but sold, sold, sold.

Just don't go all Beautiful Life on me, drama!

However, seeing that the drama summary itself dscribes their luuuurve as having no future, chances of it avoiding the Beautiful Life path are slim.

I am only ten minutes in into Starlit, Jerry Yan's new drama, and I know I am going to love it. Taiwanese dramas are my first love and when done right (as this promises to be) can be more delightful than anything else. I prefer the more serious ones to the OTT comedy ones and luckily this is the former, as it's all about tragic angsty love between a guy who can't continue with his career as a pianist due to injury (Jerry Yan) and a reporter who may or may not have a terminal illness (Terri Kwan).

So far we have had:

* pretty cinematography
* Jerry Yan looking YUMMY and angsting gorgeously (Jerry Yan is an OK actor but few actors look as scrumptuous angsting)
* Credit sequence with shippiness and kissing. Proper kissing, not touch-lips-together variety that kdramas and jdramas are fond of.
* Classical music
* Hero saving heroine's life
* Finding out heroine might have a terminal illness (or at least something that will make her a cripple)
* Did I mention Jerry Yan looking yummy and angsting gorgeously?

One thing: so far the heroine rather irritated me. Let's see: when a guy saves you from being run over by a car (an eventuality which would not have occurred if you did not stand leisurely taking phots in the middle of the road!!!) and ends up seriously injured, enough that he has to be operated on, you don't just leave him because OMG your plane to Beijing goes in a couple of hours. WTF???? Yeah, you left your cell and an apology note and told his friend where he was. Great. Not enough in any way. Seriously? Has she been brought up by wolves? You stick around to make sure he is OK and apologize profusely in person. Duh! But Terri Kwan is so darn lovable, I am not TOO annoyed. :)

I've been feeling pretty ill for the last three days so here are things to cheer self up:

1. I really like this promo still from K-Hanadan. Looks like a fashion ad:



(Side note: I see people being super-invested in this version's Soujiro/Yuki and I don't get it. Never shipped them, except in the Taiwanese version where Ken Chu and Rainie Yang's chemistry just forced me. So it's weird to see the hyperventilation).

2. Anil Kapoor, you, Sir, are adorable! Just watch this acceptance of SAG Best Cast award. It's odd, when I first got into Bollywood, I didn't care for him at all, but the more I see of him, the more I like him - he was a great leading man and now is an awesome character actor (unlike some Bolly stalwarts who play heroes long after they should be playing the hero's father). And his excitement is so fun to watch!



3. (stolen from [livejournal.com profile] timescout)

Jerry Yan has a new drama coming out, Starlit, which sounds just my thing!



He plays a pianist who loses his ability to perform after getting into an accident trying to save a girl (played by Terri Kwan) who he later falls in love with. Mmmmm....angst. Jerry Yan is an OK actor, not the world's master, but he has an unparalleled ability to look gorgeous while angsting.

Viikii has first ep up with subs.
