This is the latest in my series of "Dangermousie ranks all the kdramas she has ever seen" posts. I have seen over 70 kdramas and, being addicted to ranking, have decided to rank them all. (For previous posts go here.) Below the cut are dramas ranked 50-41: these are entertaining dramas worth a look: they are flawed but a nice time investment nontheless. All the dramas behind the cut are dramas I like. Some of them I like a lot. Once again, I have either finished these dramas entirely or finished enough to make up my own mind.

Generals, gigolos, gangsters and gun runners under the cut: my 52-43 dramas )

Until next time, amigas!

What do they have in common? Well, there is THE YUM.

I have watched episodes 5 and 6 of Iljimae and they were most excellent, but for now I want to concentrate just on Shi Ho, who seems (most happily) express his angst through shirtlessness. I live in hope that one day he will get so angsty, he will drop trou too :)

So yes, eye candy post is courtesy of Iljimae's Shi Ho, who might have some questionable character traits, but has an unquestionable hot bod and a devotion to his 'sister' which borders on Tree of Heaven territory.

More delicious caps here )

In other news, today, I continued my watch of two dramas, one Taiwanese and one Korean, which definitely prove, all over again, that when it comes to fictional men (just as in RL), my favorites are the well-adjusted sweet ones.

The first is the Taiwanese bubble-gum delight Smiling Pasta, best described as Full House on crack (I've described it plenty elsewhere, so just click on the tag if you are curious). The hero, He Qun, is an incredibly nice guy, whose biggest problem is a little aloofness and reluctance to expose himself emotionally. But he is so nice to the heroine, and the best part is, he is nice before he falls for her...he is nice because he is nice.

The other is the delicious Sweet 18 with Lee Dong Gun and Han Ji Hye. The thing that strikes me the most about this drama (other than its sheer adorableness. If you want plot summary, just click on the tag, I am sure I did plenty) is how well-adjusted and decent both the hero and the heroine are. Sure, she is a bit immature (but then she is 18! She is not immature for her age) and sure, he is a bit too fixated on being the 'good family son/grandson' but they are both incredibly kind, good people. That is why whenever they fight, they make up rather soon: he feels bad for yelling and she does, too. She understands that he might sometimes be in an awful mood and she shouldn't push, and he understands he shouldn't have lost his temper. They apologize and they explain. Etc. Sweet 18 is a story about strangers pressured into an arranged marriage (well, he is pressured, she is delighted because she is crushing on him) and how they grow to love each other, and how they prove to be compatible despite all their obvious differences (he is a young upperclass prosecutor, she is a recent high school graduate and girl-gang leader). And I love that. I think, ultimately, that is why all the plots-and-plans of Evil Ex of Hero have so far come to naught. She is so lacking in decency herself, she fails to understand that basic principle in the character of the man she ditched and now potentially wants back. She manipulates an evening so Heroine is stuck elsewhere and he is at the theater by himself and the ex has a seat next to him? He walks out. And when she tries to emotionally manipulate or whine, he explains that it's nothing against her, but he doesn't think his wife would like it if he spent time with his ex (and the best part, he is not madly in love with his wife, yet, or anything). And later, he looks for his wife because she is waiting elsewhere and a super-adorable scene follows. She drags the wife shopping and connives her into buying a really expensive suit for the husband, in the hopes he will have a huge fight? He makes the wife return the suit but he isn't mad because she did it for him, and she charms him into keeping the tie and there is an adorable tie-tying scene. Etcetcetc.

...I want to have its babies.

Oh, the OTP is so cute and functional, I think puppies are spontaneously created.

I loathe his sister and his ex though. Repulsive, awful women.

Meta coming and so is a picspam. Mmmm...Lee Dong Gun. Not only that, but his character is arguably best kdrama husband material ever.

I've had a really long hard week so far, so I think when I get home, I just might pop in Sweet 18 and relax a bit, with some blueberries and scones. I am up to ep 6, after all.

Sweet 18 is one of the most adorable, fluffiest dramas out there. It stars former RL couple Lee Dong Gun and Han Ji Hye. The plot is quite wackily adorable. Their grandparents were BFFs, so when HJH was born (LDG was 9 or so at the time), the grandpas pledged that their kids will marry when they grow up. Unfortunately, HJH's family had to run to hide from creditors, and the families lost touch over the years.

Time passed, and Lee Dong Gun grew up into a serious, rather dutiful District Attorney. And Han Ji Hye grew up into a juvenile delinquent (she leads her own girl gang :P), but bubbly and cheerful high-school senior.

And then their paths cross again, and of course, LDG's grandpa decides to lose no time and get the two married. Lee Dong Gun is, understandably, horrifed by the idea. Not only is HJH a mere child to him, and one he doesn't know, he is also recovering from an ex from hell, which sort of played tick-tack-toe with his heart. But Han Ji Hye's pushy, willful heroine has decided that she is in love with LDG (who could blame her!) and what HJH wants, HJH is going to have, come hell and high water.

Could these two very different people learn to coexist, let alone truly love each other?

Watch the fluffiest, cutest kdrama ever to find out.

Just check out this adorable MV (even if it has Engrish subs for some weird reason).

I still haven’t seen Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Aaaaaargh.

Being a good girl and waiting until Mr. Mousie can go too (this weekend) is killing me. One more day, one more day, one more day.

I have tried reading the infamous Cassandra Cla(i)re’s City of Bones novel. In the bookstore. (Leaving aside everything else, I am not paying $17 unless I am pretty well sure I’ll love the book).

OK, I was never enough in the Potter fandom to have strong views on the whole CC-plagiarizer-BNF thing (and confess enjoying Draco Sinister when much younger) but my Lord.

Forget her rep or what not. What a terribly boring book on its own merits. I got stuck by page 30 and honestly, could not proceed. I like my prose purple but this was so baroque that it wasn’t even readable. Felt like a fifteen year old trying to be deep. I was drowning in the sea of useless adjectives. Also, Jace, her male hero, is sort of like her Draco and hey, I am a lot more tolerant of fanfic than I am of the published word mess.

(Also, is it just me, or is CC very influenced by Dunnett’s Lymond Chronicles? Her Draco and now her Jace give a bargain-basement discount Lymond vibe. Only you know, not awesome).

Oh well. It’s not a terrible book by any means, but it’s lacking.

And speaking of Lymond. I blame Lymond for my constant fictional fixation on powerful, incredibly messed up intellectuals. Heck, all my fictional crushes are Lymondish in some way.

Even Ash from the Dark-Hunter books. Seriously. Gorgeous messed up guys who have a psycho family, messed up past, issues with intimacy/sex/being touched/being a hor, do not let anyone close and seem to throw themselves into abusive relationships? Yeah.

Of course, that would make Simi Ash’s Slata Baba and Artemis some sort of Guzel/Margeret Lennox hybrid and my brain is boggling already. Of course, that means there will eventually be a Philippa and that is giddiness-inducing.

Is Nick going to be Richard or Austin?

Though with Simi and Ash, I think they fit the Little Prince story a lot more than Zarek does. Hmmm.

OK, the above probably made no sense to anyone.

I really need my Lymond fix-reread.

Re: Dark-Hunter books. I read Talon’s book and while Talon didn’t particularly grabbed me, I loved loved LOVED all the Zarek and Ash stuff. I kept wanting the book to be about them: the novel was chock-full of secondaries who sort of took over and I loved every bit.

Now I am reading Valerius’ book. Hmm. I am mixed on that. Tabitha is a raving loony. If I had to be in a room with her for more than ten minutes, I’d murder her. She is so shrill and pushy and just act-before-you-think and seriously? STAB. And Valerius is OK but I can’t muster feeling bad for him, not compared to Zarek or whoever. Boo-hoo, no one likes him. Blah.

Oh, and am continuing Sweet 18 and it’s adorable. Poor HJH. She wants to marry him (because she isn’t insane) but he isn’t biting. Heeee. I don’t even dislike her for being intrusive because she is so fun and also so very young.

Argh, stupid LJ explosion of ‘07. Does it mean from now on whenever I post about Sweet 18 I have to lock it? Because the heroine is a high school girl who gets married? OK, just for the record: The character is 18. The actress was in her mid twenties (and so was the actor). As far as I am aware, the characters of her and her husband are not related to each other in the story. The actors, since they are dating each other in RL, are also presumably not related. Clear? Kthnksbye.

And speaking of that drama? So fluffy cute. I love the OTP meetings. First one is she is running away from class and literally bumps into him. He is totally flustered as he is wearing a traditional outfit for a class and is hiding behind his fan and she yells at him. LOL. But she is crushing on him too. Heh. She is such a delinquent/gang leader.

And second meeting beats that.

LDG’s character is a successful (very) young prosecutor for the city of Seoul. And he busts the nightclub where HJH and her posse are partying. Btw, a sidetrack note: what is with kdramas and HOT prosecutors? First there is Jae Hee’s super yummy Mong-Ryong in Delightful Girl Chun-Hyang, now this, and then there is the ‘other guy’ in Loveholic, who though un-OTPed, is also attractive and capable and cool. I am all for it.

So yeah, she goes hiding into the men’s restroom and he hears a noise so he busts the door, with his gun trained on her. Heh. I don’t think she recognizes him as he has on a suit and is not bashful in the least.

And now he is lecturing her and a bunch of other delinquents about how they shouldn’t skip school. Heh. The target of his bust ran off because of warning, so might as well spread some community joy, I guess.

And I am soo gleeful. Because he is incredibly charming and so is she and they chemistry makes me melt and he is so serious and proper and she is such a little delinquent (if it was a jdrama, I’d use the term ‘yankee’ but whatever the Korean equivalent) and heh, little do they know that they’ve been betrothed to each other since her birth and heeeeeeeeee.

Just you wait, guys.

And she is so going to boss him and they’ll kill each other and I can’t wait.

And now he is lecturing her and a bunch of other delinquents about how they shouldn’t skip school. Heh. The target of his bust ran off because of warning, so might as well spread some community joy, I guess.

And I am soo gleeful. Because he is incredibly charming and so is she and they chemistry makes me melt and he is so serious and proper and she is such a little delinquent (if it was a jdrama, I’d use the term ‘yankee’ but whatever the Korean equivalent) and heh, little do they know that they’ve been betrothed to each other since her birth and heeeeeeeeee.

Just you wait, guys.

And she is so going to boss him and they’ll kill each other and I can’t wait.

Argh, stupid LJ explosion of ‘07. Does it mean from now on whenever I post about Sweet 18 I have to lock it? Because the heroine is a high school girl who gets married? OK, just for the record: The character is 18. The actress was in her mid twenties (and so was the actor). As far as I am aware, the characters of her and her husband are not related to each other in the story. The actors, since they are dating each other in RL, are also presumably not related. Clear? Kthnksbye.

And speaking of that drama? So fluffy cute. I love the OTP meetings. First one is she is running away from class and literally bumps into him. He is totally flustered as he is wearing a traditional outfit for a class and is hiding behind his fan and she yells at him. LOL. But she is crushing on him too. Heh. She is such a delinquent/gang leader.

And second meeting beats that.

LDG’s character is a successful (very) young prosecutor for the city of Seoul. And he busts the nightclub where HJH and her posse are partying. Btw, a sidetrack note: what is with kdramas and HOT prosecutors? First there is Jae Hee’s super yummy Mong-Ryong in Delightful Girl Chun-Hyang, now this, and then there is the ‘other guy’ in Loveholic, who though un-OTPed, is also attractive and capable and cool. I am all for it.

Because my Stained Glass DVDs were a bit messed up and because I wanted:

a. something really fluffy and light and
b. a Lee Dong Gun fix

as much as I love wuxia, marathonning just that gets psychically exhausting (all the angst and fighting :D)

I pulled out my DVDs of the fluffy, light kdrama Sweet 18 starring the scarily adorable on/off screen pair of Lee Dong Gun and Han Ji Hye.

Half an ep in, it's exactly the fluff I need to counterbalance ROCH.

S18 is a rather unusual story. Synopsis from wiki:

the story begins when Kwon Hyuk-joon's grandfather, the head of the traditional Kwon family agrees to an arranged marriage between his grandson (Lee Dong Gun) and Yoon Jung-sook (Han Ji Hye) when Yoon Jung-sook is born. 18 years later, the two families lose contact because soon after the contract is signed, Jung-sook's family encounters financial issues and is forced to run away.

Meanwhile, Jung-sook has grown up to be a rebellious and strong-willed girl who just wants to live her life as she sees fit. With little aspirations, she is the direct foil of her achievement-bound counterpart, Hyuk-joon. When the two meet each other, they clash horribly; Jung-sook thinks her fiancee is nothing but boring, and Hyuk-joon believes Jung-sook to be nothing but an immature child. The rest of the series follows their life living together as a couple, and the obstacles they are faced with. When Hyuk-joon's first love reappears and wants to claim Hyuk-joon for herself (despite the fact that he's married), who will Hyuk-joon choose? His first love Ga-young, or immature spunky Jung-sook?

Here is a MV:



Isn't it incredibly adorable?
